2023.06.09 17:04 cum_on_blanket I came to knew that my parents hate me... This life of mine only goes downhill and it can't stop.

Just a fresh recap of all the events that led up to this:- • I got rejected by the girl I had a crush on for a year (not a big deal though) • In addition to that two of my friends betrayed me and toyed with my feelings in that same year • The boards came but hey I got 96% however the teachers said they expected more from me and berated me but the school awarded the guy who got less marks than me and is one of the two guys mentioned above (looking back that was my jealousy and hatred that got better of me). In addition my parents think it isn't enough. • My father found that his coworker was working in two companies(thanks to that bitch's husband) and insulted my father in front of my very own eyes and threated my father that if he says a single word about it to the director then she will make sure that he gets the SA charge as well as many other. • My mother suspected that two were having an affair but that wasn't the case but they still argue on it Now time for the main course:- So day before yesterday was my cousin brother's marriage. They were having fun and drinking booze. The Baraati(idk the english word my apologies) travelled for like 4kms to the home of my all new sister-in-law and they danced it all the way there. Not me though as I am sensitive to the blinking lights of dj and in addition I can't dance so I did my work of providing water and supplying food to the folks that were dancing and later on helping drunk folks to go to bed(It was a nightmare). However that day, my mother was drunk and she saw me and called me a disappointment and told me how i am a failure and all of my work always goes in vain. I didn't cry though, not because I am ligma male or anything but for some reason my brain already knew it. No suprises but I was still disheartened and the same was brought by my father and he too probably thinks that I am a waste of investment. He is still insisting on sending me to hostel but I don't wanna those two fuckers will ruin me again, I will lose my minimal freedom and I will be overwhelmed by them. Oh also today I lost my physics copy, my physics teacher will kill me on Monday well its good if he does but another bad thing. And now they are fighting for two hours consistently. I feel forsaken, I should have hanged myself back in class 6 when I had the chance to and was very close to or probably back in 3 when I first contemplated it. I have no idea why misfortunes keep coming in my way since that day. Not a suprise anymore and I guess God hates me as well for existing. They say celebrate the small achievements, well there we go I have none to celebrate to. And I apologise for this long post, but I don't have anyone to say this to except for her but I have no intention of disturbing her since she is a JEEtard like me. Well it happens, shit occurs. Not an issue. But I am thankful if you read it all the way, honestly thank you. Well time to study, what else can I even do. I can't even kill that bitch who threatened my father. I do not care if they hate me but I will love them and repay them. However this pain never heals. Nice, well it is what it is. Time to hit the books. Once again thank you very much.

2023.06.09 17:04 MrArmageddonTTV I Made The Forbidden Behemoth Build More Broken (+video inside)

Hello Guardians,
First, I want to talk about a very new and unique interaction that makes Behemoths almost unkillable when played properly.
Now I previously did a post about the niche 3-Stack Behemoth strategy, which I called the “Forbidden Build” (HERE).
But in short, three Guardians run Behemoth, wear Hoarfrost-Z and continually create and break stasis crystals, thereby constantly farming overshields, all the while while advancing towards and then securing the zone.
But with Season of the Deep, Bungie introduced a very special weapon - the exotic Strand trace rifle from the new dungeon, The Navigator.
The Navigator’s exotic perk is that firing this weapon at an ally grants Woven Mail to both the user and the target - while also refunding bullets to the mag.
And that’s when I asked myself: Is it possible for me to be more of a piece of shit than last season?
See, I discovered that Woven Mail actually STACKS with all of the Behemoth damage reduction buffs in PVP.
Check out the video here:
Of course, as usual, I'll summarize everything below if you prefer to read.

Damage Reduction

That’s right… Behemoth now has THREE separate ways to reduce damage or grant damage resist, and they all stack.
  1. Whisper of Chains, which grants a 15% global damage resist when near a stasis crystal
  2. The Rime Overshield, which grants +100 HP when you have max overshield; and now
  3. Woven Mail which gives you 25% damage resist to body shots.
Stack these three forms of damage resist, and all of a sudden, you can literally eat a Jotunn shot to the face and shrug it off.
NB: Your Rime Overshield does not take less body damage with Woven Mail BUT Woven Mail + Whisper of Chains DR do stack once you're on normal shields/HP! You can see the first part of the video for demonstrations.

Behemoth Buffs

Now I get it, you might be thinking… OK, you basically added Woven Mail to your last Behemoth Build. That’s clever, but is that it?
Nope. Not even close.
Behemoth was buffed across the board with Season of the Deep, and it seems like people still haven’t realised yet. So let’s talk buffs.
  1. The Shiver Strike melee was buffed and now goes faster and travels further. This is noticeable in regular play, but it gets crazy when you pop super. The Behemoth shiver strike melee whilst in super is absurd - we’re talking Beyond Light stasis levels of movement and speed. Check it out for yourself.
  2. The Howl of the Storm melee is now easier to use and freezes in a wider cone, making it a reliable and absolutely nasty shutdown ability much like it was prior to the nerfs.
And lastly, Trials is no longer vanilla elimination, it’s Zone Control. In other words, not only was Behemoth directly buffed, it was also indirectly buffed because the main game mode of endgame PvP is quite literally tailor made for the Behemoth kit.

Build Overview

With the build that I’m about to show you, you’ll get:
- Three separate forms of damage resist
- Near infinite ability uptime
- Supersonic movement tools;
All of which, played in the Dominion game mode, where those tools have the most impact.
So let’s get to the build.
First things first, this is a TEAM BUILD - in other words, you NEED a 3-stack of Behemoths - so be sure to send this video to convince your friends to stack up together.
Also, what’s devious about this build is that it’s VERY accessible. You do not need to be an insanely cracked PvP player to make this work. You know that saying that: “God made man, but Samuel Colt made them equal.”
This Behemoth team build is the great equaliser, and when used properly, is so utterly broken and stifling that you will beat teams that you have no right beating.

Aspects and Fragments

So for the Triple Behemoth build, you need at least two other teammates running Behemoth and ALL of YOU need to equip:
- Tectonic Harvest; and
- Howl of the Storm
In terms of fragments, you will want to equip:
- Whisper of Conduction, which means that nearby stasis shards track to your position. This way you don’t have to actually go and pick up your stasis shards, they’ll just float over to you and get absorbed. It also gives you a pretty nice stat boost of +10 to intellect and +10 to resilience. What a bargain.
- Whisper of Chains, which means that you will have damage resist when you are near frozen targets or a friendly Stasis crystal. It also grants you a very nice +10 to recovery.
- Whisper of Shards, which means that shattering a stasis crystal will grant improved grenade ability regeneration. Shattering more crystals will ended this effect. This fragment also grants you +10 resilience, yet another fantastic stat boost.
- Whisper of Rime, which means that collecting a stasis shard will give you a small amount of overshield which lasts 10 seconds. Collecting more shards adds to the overshield and extends the duration.
In terms of abilities, you will want to equip:
- Glacier Grenade
- Shiver Strike; and
- Rally Barricade.

Exotic Armor

As for exotic armour, for this specific build, you will need to use Hoarfrost Z, which you can get from farming Lost Sectors. Hoarfrost turns your regular barricade into a giant wall of stasis crystals. Remember to use the rally barricade for a lower cool-down, as there’s no difference in the size of the wall when using rally barricade with the Hoarfrost chest piece. So it’s the same wall but with a lower cooldown than using towering barricade.
Alright, so remember how Tectonic Harvest means you create stasis shards when you break crystals? And stasis shards give you free over shield because of Whisper of Rime? And breaking those crystals gives you faster ability regen for more crystals cos of Whisper of Shards? Which in turn leads to more shards, and even more over shield?
See, three Behemoths together can literally produce an infinite amount of crystals by using their grenades, their howl of the storm melees and even their class ability when you use the Hoarfrost Z chest piece.
And infinite crystals means… you got it! INFINITE OVERSHIELDS.
But wait there’s more… Those overshields also stack with the 15% damage resist you get when standing nearby any friendly crystals. AND with the new Navigator Exotic Trace rifle you can also stack a layer of Woven Mail on top of all that.

How To Play The Build

So this is how you play the build. You figure out where the zone is, and you basically build a gigantic fortnight palace of stasis crystals nearby and slowly creep closer and closer to the zone by expanding your sphere of stasis crystals. You literally want to be making and breaking crystals constantly, generating over shield and dominating the area that will eventually become the capture zone.
See here’s what’s brutal about this build and play style. It forces your opponents to engage while you are in your strongest position and they are in their weakest.
Your opponents are forced to push or the game goes to time and you capture the zone. But if they push, they’re pushing into 3 behemoths with over shields, damage resist, and cover in the form of exploding stasis crystals.
Now when your opponents are about to engage, which usually happens when the zone becomes active for capture, get your teammate to give you all Woven Mail immediately before the fight starts which gives you:
Congratulations, you are literally unable to be 1-shot by virtually any single shotgun, fusion rifle or grenade launcher.


Now, in terms of weapons, the most important thing is that ONE member of your fireteam runs The Navigator trace rifle. The Navigator doesn’t really need be used in combat but rather as a way to self-buff your team before engagements.
And the nice thing about using this build is that you KNOW when the engagements are going to happen. They’re going to happen when the zone becomes active for capture, whether that’s Trials or Survival.
Other than the Navigator, I recommend that everyone else uses Cerberus paired with either a Grenade Launcher or a Fusion Rifle.
Now you might be thinking, that’s a weird combo, why those specific weapons? Well, Cerberus 1 lets you break crystals faster than any other weapon in the game and building then breaking crystals is quite literally the centerpiece of this build.
Grenade launchers are used because apart from doing huge chunk damage to the opponent, if the grenade launcher detonates next to a stasis crystal near your opponent, the stasis detonation plus the grenade launcher can basically 1-shot them. If you don’t like grenade launchers, you can also use fusions to very good effect.
And Fusion rifles are excellent to use because you can literally just trade fusion shot for fusion shot with an opponent and you’ll win 100% of the time. If they shoot you with a fusion, you survive because of your damage resist, but if you shoot them back, they die. It’s like those old movies where two people duel with pistols - except in our case, we’re wearing a bullet proof vest.
OK guys, there's more detail/demos in the video, but I think that pretty much covers everything!
Have a good one, and I'll see you all in the Crucible,

2023.06.09 17:02 Sad-Biscotti-9325 Starting Contrave...TOMORROW

Hi everyone! I have been researching weigh loss medications for about 3 months now and based on my insurance coverage, and cost, Contrave is the medication I've decided to go with.
A little bit about me: I'm 30 years old, 5'2, female, and my starting weight as of this morning is 225. I have PCOS, Hypothyroid, Hashimotos, and other auto inflammatory issues. The highest I've ever weighed was 240. I lost 40 lbs. during the first half of the pandemic and then gained about 38lbs back. I started CICO about a 2 months ago and have lost about 12lbs. Right now I cannot seem to move the scale past 222lbs and have been fluctuating between 222 and 225 for the last few weeks.
Why weight loss meds: I need the food noise to go away. I need to live life without constantly thinking about what I'm going (or won't) eat next. My first choice would have been WeGovy because a lot of people say the food noise dies with it but my insurance doesn't cover it and I can't justify spending $1.1k a month. I have read people say the same thing about Contrave so I am hoping this helps. I also am just excited to have that extra push. I know that for people who have never experienced obesity or feeling out of control when it comes to eating food will never understand this.
I even hear from some of my thin friends that eating and exercising should be enough. I'm keeping this a secret and not telling anyone because I don't have time or the willpower to explain to them what it's like to carry an extra 100 pounds and to work so hard and see little come off. I know that I can lose the weight with CICO alone. For me though, it's just so slow. I don't want to wait 3 years before I'm at my goal weight. I'm ready for my life to change for the Its frustrating when I hear people irl and on tiktok talk about how wegovy, contrave, ozempic, are all cheating. Why is it that we allow cheat codes FOR EVERY OTHER ASPECT OF LIFE, except losing weight. Don't want to walk 1.5 miles to your supermarket? Cheat code: get in your car, bus, taxi, etc. Don't want to vacuum your own floors? Cheat code: Pay someone to clean your house for you. The examples go on and on. I'm ranting now, but I hope you get the point.
How I'm mitigating side effects: I was supposed to start this morning but my delivery got delayed. It is in the Amazon fulfilment center that is near where I live and I am hoping it gets delivered tonight for me to start tomorrow. While I am adjusting to the medication I am going to be mindful of 2 things - My water and my caffeine intake. I have heard anecdotally from others that the reason why headaches are so bad on Contrave is because people no longer crave the coffee they normally drink but their bodies are still used that that amount of caffeine and it's a withdrawal from that. I am planning on upping my water intake and sticking to the same amount of caffeine I drink. Luckily, I don't drink too much coffee, most of the time it's one or two espresso shots in a day. One at 10am and one at 2pm after lunch. I'm also going to be more diligent tracking my food and when I eat to see if any of that plays a part with the side effects.
Diet: I'm happy that I've sort of conditioned myself to stay within the 1500 calorie range the last few weeks because I've already noticed that I am unable to eat the amount of food I was consuming before. I eat pretty much the same thing for breakfast and lunch everyday to keep my life simple. I am also going to go on a alcohol cleanse. I don't drink that often and its usually within a social setting but I really want to see how my life is without alcohol. I also read that eating fatty foods is a no-go with Contrave so I will be eliminating those from my diet, as well.
Goal: I am not naïve to think I'm going to wake up in my dream body on Sunday morning. This is going to take work and dedication. My goal would be to lose 30 lbs in the next 12 weeks which is about 2.5 lbs a week. I know the scale isn't going to look exactly like that every week, but that's what I'm hoping to average. After I hit that first goal, I will focus on the next. Ultimately I would be happy in the 120-125 range which is about 100 lbs total lost.

I will be posting here with my updates regularly and hope I can find a community of people on the same journey who'll keep me accountable.

Nostalgic moment for a lost friend
Hey, all
Lost this wonderful lady 5 years ago today! Nothing special, a bare-bones 2.0 Z4 with heated seats and an aux input. You can see the almighty 16” wheels.
However, was the first ‘nice’ car I owned, and I do miss it.
Currently a TT driver, and - if one was to return to a BMW - are the current Z4s any good? Or should I be looking more at a M2?

2023.06.09 16:59 newshound103 No longer sleepless in Seattle

Just got my biopsy results. Yes there is PCa, but 3+3 in only one core and its 1.5mm. Recommending Active Surveillance.
Is it possible to be relieved to be told you have cancer? I certainly am a happy man today. Last few weeks were stressful the C word brings out all the fears and emotions, who hasn't lost someone you love to cancer?, but reading the forums and studying all the available resources certainly helps you realise that prostrate is (generally speaking) not always like the others and there can be good outcomes.
Quick details:
PSA, 5.7
Free PSA 9%
MRI showed something, so had biopsy last week.
Three cheers for early screening, hip hip...

2023.06.09 16:58 CastNoShadow71 Necrotic versus Osmiomancy: Most fun

So, I have all the necessary resources to buy whatever exotic I want from Rahool. Warlock, obviously, and I have all the exotic armor you can get without hitting up legendary lost sectors (along with all exotic head and chest armor). I’m most interested in the Necrotic Grips, but, I’m also grinding out the Stasis element and could sure use the Osmiomancy Gloves.
So, which one is just more fun to use? Appreciate the input!!!

2023.06.09 16:56 grendel2000 Holy moly, the GI stuff finally got me…

I’ve been on sema for 49 days and I’ve lost 28 lbs (sw325, cw297 - 6’ male, 52yo). It’s gone extremely well and been pleasant and easy so far. I had mild heartburn/reflux for the first two or three weeks but no other issues.
Starting about two weeks ago I hit a stall around 300lbs and started to experience constipation. I’ve always been extremely regular so going a few days between bm’s has been new to me. That said, when it stretched out to a fourth day I decided I probably needed to start doing something about it.
I had already introduced fiber gummies into my routine (two every morning, sometimes two more around dinner time) but I decided to add some probiotic prunes as well as dried dates (just two of each per day). I also got some “smooth move” based on recommendations here. Well, things finally “worked themselves out” and I thought I was home free….
Not so much.
For the past for or five days I’ve been living with constant stomach gurgling and bm’s that are basically water. I bought some magO7 and took it a few nights in a row with no major effect/change. Then last night happened.
I woke up around 3:30am with pretty bad discomfort. It was obvious that things are just not moving through my system. I had to get up, and I spent the next hour or so massaging my abdomen/guys trying to help get things moving. I also took some more smooth move (I didn’t take any magO7 last night). Things eventually settled down enough that I was able to go back to bed but now I’m up and I can still tell that there’s trouble brewing.
No bm’s yet today. Still pretty rumbly but it doesn’t feel like things are moving. I’ve been chugging water (I always do - hydration is definitely not an issue).
So, yeah - the “this is 100% awesome” party is officially over. Things are now only 85% awesome…. I’m really hoping I can figure out how to get this resolved.

2023.06.09 16:54 Level-Speaker-7686 Life as a potential FA + other career prospects?

Anyone work as AIA FA or just FA, can share your experiences? Currently I am considering to work as FA as I'm feeling very lost on how to proceed.
Just to give context,I graduated last year May with bachelor's degree in Occupational Health and Safety,worked as a project coordinator till October and as safety coordinator afterwards in a renowned MNC. However, I left 2 months later im December as they wanna transfer me deep into Jurong port area(I live in Marsiling and don't own a transport) due to safety department having too much personnel since site is VERY small + I'm the freshie that just joined. They refused to give me transport + food allowance and expect me to reach at 8am sharp for toolbox meeting, also asked for other more accessible areas but they said no so I left.
Fast forward to mid April after being jobless, I decided to start off with healthcare as a PSA working backend doing calling + data entry as I wanna try getting into healthcare as safety personnel, since I received feedback from interviewers saying I got 0 experience + qualifications. The job ended up not being a good fit for me, as I am used to resolving issues independently with different methods while complying to safe laws, but this role ended feeling like taking a MCQ test and can only give 1 right answer. The "lao jiao" or old bird + other more experienced colleagues also gave sacarstic remarks or get fed up when I ask questions over and over, then gets pissed off when I don't ask and made mistakes. I don't completely blame them though as I also made a lot of mistakes.
So I don't think I am gonna stay after my probation ends and now I am throwing resumes out for safety coordinator roles which I hardly get any answered + other sectors like social work(though I think is unlikely to get). This is where I chanced upon the AIA ad recently, which it states I don't have to do cold calls/roadshows etc, and clients will come up instead with a 3/10 closure rate for newbies.
At my current situation I am entertaining the idea to give this a shot since it appeals to my risk-taking nature + I love trading and also scalping US equities with a small amount, and I really am unsure of how to proceed for my career path. So I like to ask anyone out there who worked/working as FA rn AIA or not, how true is the advertisement, and how is life as FA starting out and after a year? Is it as hard as what many had said or survivable even with minimum sales to hit KPI? Thanks for reading and appreciate the responses .

2023.06.09 16:53 Nsomewhere Update on neutering trial: second neutering implant

I have decided to postpone neutering for now.
Not for behaviour reasons or really much more than a mild question in he has lost a bit of confidence but not badly... more I am just incredibly busy and do not have the time to make an op good calm experience and be around for long enough calm routine IMO.
There is just so much going on this summer and he will be inkennels for the middle of it
I am putting it off to the autumn
He has had a rubbish year with two bouts of kennel cough and still this lingering cough and I want to train and him to have a good summer of health
Does this make me a owner of a reactive dog: worry wort coward?
But honest my guts says oh just too risky. OK will have to pay what £120...£130... but sigh can do it for peace of mind and my gut feeling of not upset and stress him. Any illness or off routine and his gut issues start and his pancreatitis flares. It has been a long year of monitoring his health and fretting
Yes I am a coward... bad r dog owner but I really am thinking of him
He will get neutered but when I can do it properly!
For the update on the neutering implant trail (we have just gone over six months) No change in his reactivity (frustrated greeter) I can put down to neutering although it may have had a slight impact along with the train train training we have been doing! Lots. Also he is 3 and 3 months now (was 2y9m) when it went in more or less.
So probably more training impact
Any negatives. Not much although he is slightly more hesitant around some dogs (puppish dipping almost.. slight timid... very noticible shift with some dogs he knows well) and odd occurance of kind of doing a show and coming forwards defensively/ reactively towards three dogs.. ones that are less confident and one younger male intact (18 months)

Going to discuss with trainer
Keeping training!

Anyway good vets. Very good. Phoned at lunch thinking next week appointment. They said oh if you can do five today we can fit you in. Just opened a pack of implants this morning... they are in the fridge: bring him in and we will give him the second one
I would very much conclude that the implant trial has been a win win and no downside except cost if anyone else wants to try it
It is good

2023.06.09 16:48 Silver_Profession_44 Parents with autistic children... do you handle it?
My 5yo is currently at many appointments to get his autism officially on paper. Without it I can't get the help and the advice from specialists that I need.
Today is the last day of his 2 weeks of holidays from kindergarden and I'm so exhausted.
Everyone involved tells me "Yeah. He has autism, but I can't give you advice, because you have no paperwork that states it". By the end of september I will have those and it was a 2 year battle to get these. But till then is so much time without proper advice.
His daily tantrums, hitting, kicking etc. is too much for me and for 2 months now he does it with his sister (1yo) who mimics him now. I try to protect her as much as I can, but I seem to fail a lot.
How did/do you handle it? What was the best advice you ever got?
Advice I got so far - Touch him while explaining why X wasn't apropriate - Use short sentences, because his brain can't filter too many words - Try using pictures so he understands better what you want
Those were given to me in the last 3 weeks. And only after I involved CPS myself (again), because his kindergarden wanted to kick him out and I'm just lost at what to do.
Sorry if something is unclear or worded wrong as I''m from germany

2023.06.09 16:46 Ghostepeppermint Today I probably ruined my life.

I'm 24M who grew up in a fairly wealthy family for my country's economy, i have to admit i'm very immature, do to many things being solved for me, which im not proud to say.
I was holding a job that i didn't really like, the work enviroment at first was great but it slowly worsen, if you're curious to know i'll explain. I volunteered my house for a party and some of the attendees trash my house, i was suposed to cook some meat bbq style which is tradionally done on social gatherings in my home country.
However i was doing everything by myself, the rain came pooring down on me like the november rain music video and everything was ruined, i did my best and cooked the meat half drunk on a stove top and oven wich didn't turn out great.
Next day work's group chat everyone was upset at me because i didn't cook the meat on time. I asked for help multiple times ans nobody helped, i got insulted on a personal and profesional level.
I didn't think much of it until monday came and everyone was distant to me. I felt really isolated and uncomfortable and i decided to quit yesterday. The eviroment was getting to hard for me to handle, and i only took the job to save some money to move away to a new country in the first place.
I was suposed to be leaving in july 6, so it was basically just a couple of weeks. However i decided i needed a break from my coworkers and work.
To clarify i still live with my parents, wich to some of you in america might look really bad bud trust me, here down in south america is nothing but common, i was saving to move away like i said.
I woke up today and my parents where yelling at me very nasty things kinda reminded me of that twisted sister video where the father yells at his son. But it was not normal yelling, they were calling me very abusive names, and basically treating me like garbage, the nail on the coffin was when they called me a disgrace and a mistake. That how can i at my age not graduated from college already and achieve everything on life.
This really hurted me because i have very strong complexes do to me being adopted. They kept on telling me how much of a disgrace and shame i'm to family and how i make them look bad as parents. This is not the first time they've done this. They always use verh hurtful words or physical violence to prove a point. I know this might sound weird to you up north but it's very common and normal to beat up your kids in third world countries.
I grew up suffering from bullying, and being told by many teacher's im a failure and i'm going to hell, for my music, my haircut and my personality. I'd like to clarify im not a college dropout, i stop studying law school to pursuit and culinary carreer my parents where very supporting i really appreciated that however, they always make horrible comments about me not being a doctor like them or my other family members.
After 2 hours of being yelled at, my mom threatened to throw my drums away and kick me out of the house and stop supporting me in me moving away. And yes, im not ashamed of telling you all that my parents where supporting me on moving out of the country, it's never easy. Anyways they said they will no longer help me do to me being a quitter and a loser and disgrace and all of that.
So i just walk out of the house, with some of my stuff. I told them i will no longer need their money or help, that im not moving away and that i'll pick up my stuff next week.
I have no where to go, im literally wearing basically my pjs on a wendy's as i'm typing this. I know i sound very inmature but dealing with bullys and abusers all my life has taken a toll on me.
This is also a very tough decision for me do to having a long distance relationship of three years with a wonderful woman i met online. And we've been visiting each other for the past three years. I was very happy to finally close the distance, however that wont be posible for at least a couple of years from now, do to the recent events on my life.
I feel lost and i feel like i have nowhere to go.

2023.06.09 16:45 Optimal_Accident_111 AITA/WIBTA for telling on my bosses sons?

Hello my name is Olive (name changed) I'm 31/F from Australia. I am personal house keeper for a well respected doctor and her family and I work 5 days a week. I have been doing this job for about 4 months and always try my best to be kind, friendly, helpful and try my hardest at my job. I look after their dog whilst I'm there, plus house work, letting trades people etc in and continuously pick up and tidy up after her two sons 19 and 21. A few days ago at work while I was on the top level of the house, whilst changing the linens on the bed in the master bedroom I looked out the verandah to see 2 puppies who has escaped their yard and where running willy nilly around in a bushy area next to the river that backs onto the properties, one adult and one young puppy. I panicked as I was very scared they would slip into the river and drown. I ran down the two internal flights of stairs and down 3 more flights of stairs to get to the rivers edge (which is incredibly hard as I am not the smallest woman, quite challenged in the fitness department, with breathing problems, imagine if you will a plump potato with little legs that sounds like a snoring pug while running down three sets of steps made of lose pebbles and wood... not pretty) I hauled ass down there to find I needed to scale a fence and walk through the mud to get to this little pupper and you bet I got him, he was cold, muddy and miserable. I took my jumper off and wrapped him up and carried him back through the mud, over the fence and back up the stairs to the house. One of the boys youngest we will call him A 19/m happened to come outside as I walked into the courtyard head to toe in mud and carrying a shivering dog. Yes I can say he did assist me in getting towels and food for the pup and put a photo of him up in social media to help track down his owner. I had to sit in a jumper which I had to ask numerous for numerous times, that was three times to small and a towel so I could wash my clothes, I bathed, cuddled and comforted this scared lost little soul, until his Dad came to collect him. All within 1.5 hours of the rescue, which was an awesome win! His owner was absolutely frantic and so grateful that his baby was safe and sound, we came to learn he was only just 4 months old. Here's where I'm unsure what to do, after all the antics I finally washed and dried my clothes and got dressed, finished my jobs for the day and went home. After I left the fellow dropped by a lovely bottle of wine as a thank you gift which is so kind of him. However, I wasn't there so I did not recieve it, nor did either of the sons whome where the only people there at the time as my boss and her husband are out of the country, actually tell me anything about it. Although while at work today I did clean up while classes, and remnants of the left overs of the wine. I feel really really hurt that I wasn't even told about it nor was I given a gift that was destined for me. It is a personal choice that I don't drink alcohol, but I would have really enjoyed having a glass as a cheers to the little furry dude who plopped into my life for an hour or so. WIBTA if I messaged my boss to let her know her sons basically stole my thank you gift?? Thanks in advance (sorry it was so long winded)
I only found out about the gift after I was messaged from the owner thanking me and telling me to enjoy it for helping them.
The older dog took off when I called out and was able to make its way home whereas the younger dog was down further on the side of the incline and unable to make its way up to where it's canine companion was. I would have gone after both if I was physically able but unfortunately I couldn't I'm just glad everyone was safe.

Friday, June 9 — 5 significant news stories
Today ChatGPT read 1066 top news stories and gave 6 of them a significance score over 7.
After removing previously covered events, here is today’s significant news:
[7.7] General Motors adopts Tesla's charging plug standard, joins Supercharger network — Reuters
General Motors (GM) has agreed to adopt Tesla's North American charging plug standard and give GM electric-vehicle buyers access to the Tesla Supercharger network. The move follows a similar decision by Ford, meaning three of the top EV sellers in the North American market have now agreed on a standard for charging hardware. Tesla Superchargers account for about 60% of the total fast chargers in the United States and Canada, according to US Department of Energy data. The alliance among the three leading rival US EV manufacturers has significant commercial and public policy implications.
[7.7] Ukrainian forces launch assault against Russian positions in the south — The Guardian
Ukrainian forces have launched an assault against Russian positions in the south, with tanks, armoured vehicles, infantry and artillery being used in the fighting. The combat, which is taking place south of Zaporizhzhia, includes an attempt to break through in the Orihiv-Tokmak sector, which blocks the route to the Russian-occupied city of Melitopol. The Institute for the Study of War has said that the Ukrainian counteroffensive has begun, while Ukrainian officials have insisted that they would not make an official announcement when the counteroffensive begins and have cautioned against focusing on a single area, suggesting it could involve a number of components.
[7.3] Russian sabotage group accused of blowing up Ukrainian dam, causing mass flooding — Reuters
Ukraine's Security Service (SBU) has released an audio recording of a phone call it claims proves that a Russian "sabotage group" blew up the Kakhovka hydroelectric station and dam in southern Ukraine, causing mass flooding and environmental damage. The SBU has opened a criminal investigation into war crimes and "ecocide". Russia has accused Ukraine of destroying the dam, but has not commented on the recording. The SBU said the recording confirms that the dam was blown up by a Russian sabotage group, which wanted to blackmail Ukraine and staged a man-made disaster in the south of the country.
[7.2] Zelenskiy warns of global ecological disaster after Nova Kakhovka dam collapse — The Guardian
Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelenskiy has warned that the ecological disaster caused by the collapse of the Nova Kakhovka dam has become a global problem as contaminated waters flow into the Black Sea. The flood waters have brought sewage, oil, chemicals and possibly anthrax from animal burial sites. Kyiv has accused Russian forces of blowing up the dam and committing ecocide. The disaster has affected 100,000 people downstream, with 50,000 hectares of forests flooded, and 20,000 animals and 10,000 birds under threat of imminent death. The Zaporizhzhia nuclear plant, 125 miles upstream from the dam, is also at risk.
[7.1] The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration predicts intensifying weather patterns over winter — CNBC
The National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA) has announced that an El Niño climate pattern, which can cause warmer temperatures and more extreme weather, has arrived and is expected to strengthen over the winter. In the U.S., an El Niño can cause wetter weather in the south and drier conditions in the Pacific Northwest and Ohio Valley, and can potentially lead to a warmer winter in the north. The intensity of the event will influence its impacts. There's an 84% chance for a stronger than moderate El Niño this winter. Global effects may include droughts and fires in Indonesia/Australia and extreme rainfall in eastern South America.

2023.06.09 16:44 ash2625 Fell sick yesterday the day before my AFM exam and missed it today. My request for reschedule/withdrawal was denied despite having a medical certificate.

I don’t know if its the stomach flu or food poisoning. But the day before the exam (TMI) I was having loose motion and severe abdominal cramps with a little blood. Hadn’t slept at night cause I had to wake up every hour to go to the bathroom. My situation didn’t get better in the next few hours so I went to the doctor, got a sick leave certificate and sent it to ACCA. I wanted to attend but I could not even sit up properly and obviously I don’t wanna shit my pants during the exam (centre based).
What i didn’t know is, apparently they made the cancellation and amendment process more strict. And since i wasn’t hospitalised they didnt find my case serious enough despite me explaining over the phone. Last year around the same time I had faced almost the same issue and my case was accepted so naturally I applied this time without a second thought. I understand if they didn’t want to refund my fees, but at least a rescheduling would have been good.
My parents are telling me its okay, I was sick and money is not important. But I feel so horrible, I feel like a failure because today was supposed to be my 5th AFM attempt. I kept failing repeatedly cause of family issues, and I panicked and procrastinated. The one time I prepared better this happens. I have been stuck with this paper for a year now. The people around me have already gotten internships/jobs or passed ACCA and I had to put aside my career for a year now after graduation to support my baby brother with developmental problems in school. I also feel super shitty about the money I lost today and for the previous attempts as well. Our financial situation is not the best right now too.
I just wanted to rant over here to people who understand the struggle of ACCA. Been sleeping the whole day to avoid thinking about this and since I was in pain. Thanks for listening.

2023.06.09 16:41 babycakes2365 UNBELIEVABLE BS AND SERVICE SERIOUSLY!!

OK. I have been ordering through DD for a while now but today I placed an order because I didn't have much food for the week and I received a tax credit for 60 dollars. My order was $49. So the Dasher I guess was having trouble with the app and I had sent several messages regarding an item that was unavailable. For some reason I didn't hear back from him so I messaged him again and I tried to call. He told me his issue and he couldn't go back to the store which is not very far from me and get the item he didn't get. He said something about canceling the order so I did. I may have misunderstood him but to make a long story short I didn't get my order even though I was informed that I was refunded the money. I tried to reorder but the money was not available so I messaged help and they were just giving me the run around and I was repeating myself over and over again and I was getting upset because I am in chronic pain and I am sick. I'm on disability due to illness and I don't have barely any food. My money is now gone and I'm being told 3 to 5 business days for it to be back in my account. They mentioned credits but didn't explain how they worked. I. Am livid right now and I asked to speak with a supervisor but no luck and they kept ending the chat. Grrrr. I'm so upset about this shit show. I don't know what to do. They weren't helpful at all and now I have no food and no money for anything else. I just want to scream. I haven't been able to have breakfast because of course some of my order was breakfast items. I am broke and I have no idea what I will do for the next two days. Maybe by Monday it may be available but I don't think ranting becauseI don't thinktheyareveryprofessionalandIcertainlywon'torderfromthemagainffs!! They just lost a regular customer. Not impressed.!!!

2023.06.09 16:30 ThrowRA_kisuhari still unsure if my friend (22m) may think of me (21f) as something more due to the things he says.

this is sort of an update to my last post, which can be seen on my profile.
so today I went over to his place to watch a movie, the movie was good, he just sort of let me chill out and watch it on my own while he finished up on university work at his desk.
when I told him the movie had finished, that's when he got really playful, with him telling me how he's bored and once again collapsing on top of me like how I've stated in my previous post. I was sort of laying on my side, as one does, and he layed down on his side on top of me (I don't know how to explain it) and because I like to be annoying and try to make him flinch by pretending to knee him, he had my legs locked between his and his hands just casually resting on my legs as he scrolled on his phone. we had a pillow between us, so it wasn't exactly direct contact I guess.
this is the part that's thrown me for a loop. at some point, I readjusted so I'd be lying flat on my back. as if it was the most casual thing in the world, K readjusted himself so that he was laying down between my legs and put the pillow on my stomach so he could rest his head on it. he then grabbed one of my legs and brought it over his shoulder so he could "hug" it, I guess (?) as he scrolled through his phone. every now and again he'd full on just rest his head against my thigh that he had propped up.
eventually he decided he need to finish his work and got up, telling me I should rest and whatnot. after denying the fact I needed sleep, he got back into the previous position, however this time without a pillow acting as a barrier and with him full on using my thigh as a place for his head.
he kept asking it was comfortable, to which I repeated the question back to him and he confirmed, saying it really was. and that was that, we stayed like that for a while until I said it was time for me to leave for my martial arts practice.
he didn't do anything more than that, and as we were in that position, he kept saying stuff like how he should introduce me to some friends and that he'd tell them that I'm "single and ready to mingle" and things similar.
I'm still not sure if this is normal behaviour between friends. I'm a female who has next to zero relationship experience who isn't sure what to think, and the way he was just so casual about it has me thinking that it's just him showing that he's comfortable around me in some kind of way.
I'm just feeling so so lost over this, and am still not sure if this is just friendly (or maybe even overfriendly) behaviour between two friends.
also posted on relationship_advice and advice so i could get some more opinions, since i'm so lost on what to think or do....
tldr: i have no clue what to think regarding my friend (m22)

2023.06.09 16:30 Aggressive-Virus3379 He ended our friendship

Today I lost my friend. I guess today was the final straw, because he ended it over something so little.He has PTSD from a previous abusive relationship, and is thinking I'm doing the same things as his narcissist ex. I've been walking on eggshells for days, and still kept striking a nerve with him. Now he won't text me or answer my calls. He was my only friend as I'm autistic and not good at making friends. We've been friends for a long time and I thought he knew me better than that.I just needed to get this off my mind.

Update: Sugie crossed the rainbow bridge. 17 years old
I felt it was only right to give everyone an update. You all have been so kind to me and my family as we came to the end of our sweet Sugie's life. She passed this morning before our vet's office opened. She was surrounded by us in her own bed. It was hard to see her go but I'm glad she passed at home in her own comforts as much as possible. We let onenof her younger sisters, Squeegie, come and see her before and after it was over. Her other younger sister, Kita did not get along with her and didn't really have interest to maybe understand the fact that she was gone. I called our vet and she gave me the name of the crematorium that they use. We decided to go through them directly instead of bringing her to the vet. They will be coming to get her later today. For now she is wrapped in her favorite blanket inside a box with some wildflowers from my garden around her. I have her last scritches. I am so lost, numb, sad and afraid. It smells like death in here and I'm having a hard time with it. I've taken the rest of the week off from work and my manager is very understanding. Thank you all so much. Your words have meant so much to us dealing with the loss of a first fur baby. I've read every comment on my last post. I'll try to respond but know your love and words have not gone unnoticed. I thank you. My husband thanks you and most of all Sugie thanks youn for helping us when we need it most. I also included some recent photos of her I like. One love to you all. 🌈❤
