WASHINGTON, May 29 - U.S. President Joe Biden said Turkish President Tayyip Erdogan in a call on Monday repeated Ankara's desire to buy F-16 fighter jets from the United States, while Biden told him Washington wanted Ankara to drop its objection to Sweden's joining NATO. The exchange took place when Biden called Erdogan to congratulate him on his victory in Turkey's presidential election on Sunday. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: Sweden#1 NATO#2 Biden#3 Turkey#4 Erdogan#5
Asked if he expected any movement from Erdogan on Sweden's NATO membership, Biden said: "I raised that issue with him. We're going to talk more about it next week."
The sale has been stalled due to objections from the U.S. Congress over Ankara's refusal to green light to NATO enlargement, its human rights record and Syria policy, even though the Biden administration has repeatedly said it supports the sale.
The Biden administration has repeatedly rejected any assertion of any "Quid pro quo" between the sale and the NATO enlargement, although Turkish Foreign Minister Mevlut Cavusoglu in January said the U.S. side made it clear that an approval of NATO bids would be viewed positively by the Congress.
A bipartisan group of senators in a February letter to Biden said Turkey's failure to ratify the accession protocols for Sweden and Finland, which was still waiting at the time, would "Call into question this pending sale", referring to the F-16s. A source familiar with the discussions said the United States had previously told Turkey it would be hard to get Congress to approve the F-16 deal if Ankara doesn't green light Sweden.
Seeing Sweden join NATO by mid-July when the alliance is due to hold a leaders summit in Lithuania is among the top priorities for Washington.

2023.05.30 13:44 Dildo_Shagginz Frieza vs Kaos (Dragon Ball vs Skylanders) Fight Script
So, Frieza vs Kaos,
a matchup I'm really vibing with and that has quickly become my favorite for both, so it's only right I make a script for it right? I think this is my longest script yet as there was a lot I wanted to include in here, even if a good chunk of it can be dumbed down to "lasers" if you wanna do that lol (it's dragon ball, whatcha expect?) Anyways, I hope you enjoy! We begin with a shot of the Skylands. Floating isles, hidden amongst a wafting of mist and fog high in the sky. Each was themed towards the different elements that power the land, its inhabitants and its defenders, the mighty Skylanders, however there was one location in particular reserved for the most rotten of them all. On the Cloudbreak Islands lay the Kaos Fortress, where the dark lord Kaos himself resides. In this fortress, Kaos sat on his large, comfortable chair, a chair that was realistically far too large for him to sit on. Standing next to him was his loyal right hand, a demure and lanky goblin man named Glumshanks, who held for Kaos a large strawberry milkshake that the dark lord was eagerly drinking. However, Kaos' drink was cut short by a new arrival. Floating down from the clouds above was a large, circular ship, made of high tech materials and construction. The flagship of the Frieza Force, reserved for their own Mighty Lord, Frieza himself. The hatch at the top of the ship opened up, and out from within floated up the white and purple tyrant himself. Clearing his throat as his tail casually swished around behind him, Frieza seemed as though he was preparing for some sort of business meeting with how casual he seemed. Although, his words were far from as disarming as his actions.
"Haha, residents of the Skylands, it has come to my attention that you exist.
I tried to tell your Master Eon to kneel but the old man was delusional enough to deny me. And so I, the Mighty Lord Frieza, grant you the honor of being the first graveyard amongst the Skylands!" He announced, casually raising his finger up to the air, a small burning orb of fiery light formed at the tip of his finger, swelling into the form of his deadly Supernova attack. It grew until it eclipsed the fortress below, before Frieza pointed down at the ground below, intending to detonate the island like he did to Planet Vegeta. However, before the Big Bang could hit the ground, a crackling aura of purple energy surrounded the attack. The aura held the attack back and forced it to shrink, shrinking it smaller and smaller until it was the size of a mere soccer ball before it transmuted into a confused, seemingly traumatized sheep. Kaos stepped out onto his balcony, with Glumshanks placing a large stepping stool out on the edge for his Lord to use to heighten himself. Handing Kaos a megaphone, Glumshanks stepped back and plugged his ears, preparing for the ear shattering speech to follow.
"FOOL! You believe you get to rule the Skylands?? The Skylands belongs to me! The bringer of ultimate mega DOOM! LORD KAOS! GLUMSHANKS, TELL HIM," Kaos holds the megaphone down to Glumshanks mouth, and the monotone goblin spoke into it.
yeah, yeah he's right." Frieza chuckled, amused by the defiant buffoon, as more Frieza Force ships begin to descend from the clouds, launching pods filled with Saibamen onto the fortress. Manning the walls of the Kaos Fortress, trolls began to mount onto cannons and turrets to blast at the pods, blasting a few out of the air but missing a precious few, which landed on the ground and released their Saibamen. The Saibamen started blasting holes through the walls of the Fortress, flooding into it's inner walls to take it from the inside, only to find Cyclopes and Spell Punks meeting them within.
"Send the Ginyu Force!" Frieza commanded, cackling to himself as he watched his forces battle Kaos' down below and, as he commanded, the Ginyu Force landed on the Island, with their theme song playing as expected. In response Kaos screeched,
"DOOMLANDERS! Don't just stand there, bring them their doom!!" As he instructed as well, the Doomlanders met the Ginyu Force on the field of battle. The two groups would fight for a brief while, however soon enough the Doomlanders would emerge victorious. Kaos began to cheer for his victory, only to see a comet of purple energy hurtle towards the ground, slamming in the middle of the Doomlanders. Standing in the middle of the crater left behind was Frieza, the strength of his landing alone vaporizing the Doomlanders with the alien tyrant giving negative shits about it. He pointed up to Kaos, and a bright beam of purple light blasted from his finger towards the short portal master. Kaos narrowly leapt out of the way, with the beam blasting into the top of the fortress and blasting a hole through it's roof. As Kaos began descending, he used a spell to make himself float as he bared down on Frieza, flying towards him as he threw balls of blue fire at the white and purple alien. Frieza sidestepped and ducked around them, charging forward at Kaos with an attack prepared for him. When Kaos got close, Frieza whipped him with his tail and sent Kaos flying towards the ground, cratering the ground below him.
"Oww! That was rude! Glumshanks, bring me a bandaid!" He yelled, with his minion somehow understanding him even from so far away. Frieza landed down in front of Kaos, kicking him to the side to send him even further away, *
right when Glumshanks reached the area with a comically large first aid kit in his hands,** causing the man to sigh as he realized how much more he'd have to run. Frieza floated over to Kaos, chuckling to himself.* "Interesting, you're being beaten to death and your crying over a boo-boo? I find you so pathetic that I'm tempted to let you live," Frieza teased, lifting Kaos up out of the ground and blasting him up into the air, blasting upwards into the sky to trail behind him. He blasted more and more rapid fire purple lasers, but Kaos was not outdone. Kaos teleported out of the air and back down to the ground, leaving Frieza confused until he looked back down to the ground, seeing Kaos mount up onto his supercharger that he got out of a portal he summoned. Igniting his superchargers engine, Kaos launched up into the air, now being the one to chase Frieza through the sky, sadly just as Glumshanks reached him again causing the poor servant to be launched back by the rocket boosters, sending the first aid kit out of his hands. Frieza now started flying away from Kaos, with Kaos flying after him and blasting his own purple lasers at Frieza in the shape of rings, waves, lines and zig-zags, throwing Frieza off his game and causing him to be pelted by lasers at every turn, all while Kaos monologued behind him.
"Stupid fool! You run away from your doom? From Kaos? You'll only loose tired…
GLUMSHANKS! WHERE IS MY BANDAID?!" After a while, Frieza started to wisen up to the patterns of Kaos' blasts and began to deftly dodge them, annoying Kaos. Summoning another portal, Kaos pulled out one of his artifacts, a powerful red and gold gauntlet. The Iron Fist of Arkus.
"You have annoyed me for long enough, Freezer!" Kaos said, his voice deep and distorted into that of a robot. Frieza's flight was halted as his tail was grabbed by Kaos, now in the form of a massive, powerful Arkeyan robot, his eyes glowing bright blue.
"Unhand me you idio-" Frieza yelled before his words were cut off, with Kaos swinging Frieza down onto a nearby mountain, pulverizing it with the force of the impact, leaving Frieza in a massive crater in the ground. However, Kaos was not done. Leaping up into the air with his massive robot form, Kaos landed a comically large peoples-elbow on his opponent who was currently many times smaller than him. Standing back up to his feet, Kaos stomped down onto the crater multiple times, smashing Frieza further and further into the ground, before pointing his head down to blast a powerful beam of light out of his eyes down into the crater.
"That's…ENOUGH!" Frieza cried out, a powerful burst of golden light dispersing the laser of the Arkeyan Kaos immediately as Frieza flew up to Kaos' head, landing a powerful punch into Kaos' chin in his now-golden form. Kaos was launched up into the sky but by the time his large, robotic frame was done flying up, Frieza was already behind him and pointing his finger forward, blasting repeated blasts of ki into his back, severing the gauntlet off of Kaos' robotic hand and reverting him back to his base form, showering the ground below in craters formed by Frieza's ki blasts, the ground being covered in a layer of smoke.
"Fool…FOOL! You DARE power up? ONLY I GET TO POWER UP!" Kaos whined, his voice growing distorted once again as he spoke. The smoke dispersed around him to reveal him in his Traptanium form, floating with a lower half made of Traptanium crystal and dark purple skin. He flew up to Frieza, blasting beams of purple energy at him as the two began to engage in a ranged air-skirmish. The two eventually get taken to melee, with Frieza kicking Kaos to the side where Kaos smacks into the screen, breaking it for a few seconds as he flies back into the fight again (cuz Traptanium Kaos breaks the fourth wall.) When Kaos flies back though, Frieza blasts Kaos back down to the ground, now following him to the ground and slowly, dramatically walking towards him.
"This sparring session is getting less and less entertaining you buffoon," Frieza said.
"Master Kaos, I have your bandaid," Glumshanks said, running up in-between Frieza and Kaos desperately panting for breath, bandages spilling out of it and flapping in the wind like loose toilet paper.
"Want a large one or a short one?" Glumshanks asked. Frieza rolled his eyes and pointed at the tall goblin man, Death Beam'ing him through the chest and causing Glumshanks to die, just like how Frieza killed Paragus.
"Such a tragedy," Frieza mocked, before looking back at Kaos. Kaos however was…still. He wasn't screaming, he wasn't whining, he was just…angry. Very angry, and Frieza could tell.
“So much for that blundering buffoonery! I did wonder when you would stop whini-“ Crackling purple light emanated from Kaos as his body bulked up and grew, cutting off Frieza's words. His muscles bulged and hulked out, metal armor covered his body, and his hair and eyes burned a bright, crackling blue…something that sparked a memory in the sadistic tyrant Frieza.* When the smoke clears fully, a familiar cackle, now deepened, can be heard as Kaos emerges in his Super State and begins charging a blast.
"Your doom will be slow, Frieza!" Kaos threatened.
“That’s…that’s…” Frieza could barely force the words out of his mouth as a flash of memory crosses his mind…a memory of his second death, a familiar foe charging a similar blue blast.
“FRIEZAAAAA!!!!” Goku shouted in his memory Cut back to reality, Frieza’s flashback distracting him long enough for him to take the blast in the gut, sending Frieza to the ground. As it dissolves…he begins fuming in rage.
“ANOTHER BLASTED!” Frieza punches the ground with each word.
“STUPID!” Finally, rage overtakes him completely, in an ironic reference to the first transformation of the one who killed him in his cybernetic state, and he transforms into his Black form!
“MONNNNKEEEEYYYYYY!!!!!!!!” A powerful purple aura enveloped Frieza, his skin turning black and his eyes burning bright red. The two where now in their highest forms, and the fight would truly commence. The two battled against one another in the air and on the ground, blasting waves of energy at eachother in varying shapes and sizes. Kaos summoned his Doom Sharks, sending a wave of chomping energy sharks at Frieza who dispatched them quickly with a series of blasts. Frieza tried to land a flurry of punches on Kaos, but Kaos summoned his large, energy construct Doom Hands to grab the alien racist by the tail and smash him down on the floor, opening him up to more and more blasts of chaotic energy from Super Kaos. However, Frieza wasn't done yet.
"I have had enough of this charade! Kaos, your end is now, and it only makes me more annoyed that I won't be able to savor your quick demise!" Frieza cried out, flying up into the sky and raising a hand to the air, a large ball of purple energy forming above him as he prepared a large, powerful Death Ball.
"Kaos doesn't know defeat, Frieza! But you, you will know DOOM!" *Kaos shouted back in his deepened voice, raising his large Doom Hands as he prepared to catch the Death Ball. Frieza launched the ball, a wave of energy erupting from it as it collided with the Doom Hands…
FRIEZA WIN The Death Ball barely overpowers the Doom Hands, blasting through them and colliding into Kaos. Kaos screamed out in pain, using his magic to try and contain it like he did to the Supernova previously, but it was too much. The raw power of the Death Ball caused rocks and pebbles to rise up from the ground, orbiting it like a star, with the sheep-supernova from earlier swirling around alongside them. Eventually though, Kaos accepted his own doom, reverting to his base form as his body disintegrated, shouting his final lines.
"YOU'RE STUPID!" He shouted, as if trying to get one last insult in to his opponent. After Kaos was incinerated, Frieza floated down to the ground, his forms exhausting as he reverted to base, covered in bruises as he crossed his arms.
"That's one island down…let's hope the rest have less childish rulers," Frieza said, not realizing he was pouting like a petulant child.
KAOS WIN Kaos's Doom Hands closed around the Death Ball, slowly compressing it and crushing it into nothingness.
"T-thats not possible!" Frieza cried out, before the Doom Hands grabbed him by the tail. Frieza was slammed down onto the ground, where Kaos used his Doom Hands to repeatedly pummel into his face. He summoned his Psychic Shot blades to stab into Frieza's limbs, pinning him to the ground as his Doom Hands beat the tyrant for death.
"This is for Glumshanks you fool!" Kaos cried out,
"W-wait! No, stop! I am the mighty Lord Frieza-" Frieza begged before Kaos finished his assault, splattering Frieza's head against the ground. Kaos reverted to his base form, falling back to the ground as his tongue comically hung out of his mouth in exhaustion.
"Victory…belongs…to Kaos…fool…" Kaos said, the final shot being of the supernova-sheep coming over and licking his face like the deer in Hulk vs Broly.
Best for both imo, thank you for reading, I hope you enjoyed! Lemme know your thoughts in the comments below.

2023.05.30 13:43 yoragon The search for a tilt wheel gaming mouse
TL;DR: I'm looking for an entry-level/midrange gaming mouse with a tilt wheel (and side buttons). any comment, recommendation and advice would be more than welcome :)
(all links are in the comments)
! For the last couple of weeks I've been looking for a mouse with a tilt wheel function, and compiled a list of options in order to find myself a new mouse. I want this thread to also be a good starting point for future tilt wheel lovers looking for their next mouse.
Currently I'm using the Logitech m560
(link in comments), and recently after its side buttons started malfunctioning, I've figured that it's high time for an upgrade.
Generally, I've been searching for an entry-level/midrange
gaming mouse for daily use, mostly for gaming, work and browsing. Hardware
: a gaming laptop. Games
: I'm playing mostly non-competitive games (though I do play them sometimes), mostly third-person single-player RPGs and rougelikes, and some multiplayer FPSs.
As of Work, it includes mostly coding, for which I really just need a mouse for the browsing part of it. It is important to me though that the mouse will be comfortable for this as well. Hand preference
: I'm right handed and would like to try an ergonomic design, though I have no problem with a symmetric mouse if it's comfortable. Budget
: an arbitrary sum of 55$ - though I am flexible about it. Hand size
: 19cm x 10.5cm (I wasn't sure if I was supposed to measure from the wrist or the end of the palm, might be 18cm x 10.5cm). Grip
: I think it's palm grip or a very relaxed fingertip grip. Tbh I'm not entirely sure what my grip is, as my m560 is relatively small so for me the palm itself can't really touch the mouse unless I claw it. What I can say for certain about my grip is that I'm most comfortable when my fingers are completely resting on the mouse/slightly above it, while the scroll wheel is in line with my index finger's distal phalanx
(which I think is the name for the top third of the finger?). I mostly use my wrist for moving the mouse
(but I also move my arm when playing). Weight
: I would like it to be relatively light so it won't strain my hand after hours of use, but I'm not looking for those ultra lightweight FPS mice. Sensitivity
: as of my understanding, most mice from reputable companies have wide sensitivity ranges, so I think any quality mouse will do. I'm not particularly looking for extraordinarily high sensitivity. Connectivity
: technically I have no preference, but as the wired options are usually significantly cheaper (and lighter), I tend to prefer them. That being said, I have seen people saying that wireless is better for laptops, so I wanted to ask you beautiful people for your thoughts on the issue. I also dislike mice with regular one-use batteries, so rechargeable is preferred among the wireless options. Additional characteristics
: looking for an entry-level/midrange gaming mouse with a tilt wheel (I sometimes saw it referred to as 4-way or 4-directional wheel) and few side buttons, preferably with not too many other features (for example no MMO/MOBA mouse side buttons, RGB and super high DPI are not a priority and there's no need for other bells and whistles).
Why a tilt wheel? Well, after using the m560 for quite a while, I've found it hard to come back. For me at least it offers a lot of utility for and requires minimal effort, making it too hard for me to give up on.
The significant downside, of course, is that not many gaming mice have this niche, mostly productivity-oriented feature.
In the first few days of my search for my next mouse, I barely managed to find anything, and I didn't seem to be the only one: many single-comment threads are scattered across the sub with people asking for suggestions for mice with this feature.
After a while, thanks mostly to this sub, I managed to compile a short list of mice that met most of my requirements: Razer Basilisk series
(specifically V2, ultimate, V3 and V3 Pro) – tbh probably my favorites out of the bunch. After compiling the list I centered most of my research around them. The specs seem amazing relative to the price, the reviews are very positive, I really like their design and they fit perfectly with my requirements. That being said, I fear that they might be a bit uncomfortable as I don't really know what my grip is (although reviews I watched said they are all pretty comfortable for most). I managed to find most of the options within my budget, except for the V3 Pro, as unsurprisingly yoinking that cable takes the affordability right with it. I have been trying to find deals on both it and the Ultimate, and I wanted to know, as per your experience, if you think that their wirelessness is indeed necessary for a laptop. Technically I'm not specifically looking for an RGB, so even taking the V2 is a pretty good option for me. Razer Mamba Elite
– seems pretty much straight to the point, though I found the Basilisk V3 with a lower price tag almost everywhere. Razer Naga
– seems nice but has a bit “too much” for my taste. Pricing is a bit all over the place, but I still prefer the Basilisks over it. Razer Pro Click
and Click Pro Mini
– probably the most similar to my measly m560, but I'd lie if I'd say I didn't want to really "feel" the upgrade and buy a gaming mouse. Plus, more importantly, the prices tend to be less friendly and exceed my budget. Logitech G502 series
– Probably the most frequent to appear in the search. Looks perfect for my needs and seems very attractive with the price tag for the older generations of the series, and even for some newer ones. I do have to point out, though, that after some research I noticed that in online comparisons between Razer's Basilisks and this series, the Basilisks almost always come up on top. Plus, I really dislike it when Logitech's tilt wheel registers when pressing the scroll wheel for M3, and I've read that this happens in most of the companies' models. On first glance I thought that the G502 models might be a little too much for me with their extra buttons, but an amazing productivity mice review
(link in comments) by u/Buzz_Buzz_Buzz_
changed my mind a bit. I managed to find the original model for less than 20 bucks, and even then wireless Lightspeed and the newer wired G502x are usually sold at very comfortable prices. Logitech G604
– I think that the feature I like the least in this option is the amount of side buttons, which I fear might make using them a chore. Aside from that, I'm not sure about the shape as I have seen that it was weird for some, and the fact that it uses an AA battery is also a downside for me. Other than that, it seems like a good option, especially for a wireless, as the prices are quite low. Logitech G903
– On paper they seem pretty fitting for my needs, but I had a hard time finding either of them online. They were mostly either partially working or with ridiculously high price tags. Steelseries rival 500
– similar issue with the last pair – its age made it hard to find. Although it is a MMO/MOBA mouse, its layout seems more intuitive and easier to learn compared to other mice of this sort. Roccat Kone series
(specifically XTD, EMP, XP and XP Air) – the XTD and EMP suffer from the same fate as the previous mice on the list, the XP Air is out of my budget, but the XP seems fine. It has a lot of buttons, and although the layout seems a bit uncomfortable, the EasyShift thumb paddle is pretty elegant (though, again, might be too much for me). In addition to that, neither the RGB nor the “Minecraft mouse” selling points are really for me. HyperX Pulsefire Raid
– raised my interest after reading a detailed and helpful review
(link in comments) by u/Kaytwo_TTV
. It also has more buttons than I'm looking for, but it seems rather fine. It's a bit hard to find online as well, but in contrast to the previous mice with this issue, when I did manage to find it for sale it was at a bargain price well within my budget. EVGA X17
– seems like a good but heavy option, with a fair price point and surprisingly high availability. The sniper button though is in a weird position. Main drawback for me is the weight.
In addition to all of these, after some digging I found a beautiful and comprehensive tilt wheel mice list
(link in comments) which at least for me is pretty hard to comprehend. As my knowledge on the mice world is very limited, it was hard to try and research all of them, though I do think that most of the mice that are worth it are already in the original list. If I'm wrong please correct me and add your own suggestions, it would be greatly appreciated
. Some sidenotes
: This is my first time buying an actual mouse, and I'm not sure what's the optimal way of doing it. As I am looking for a budget option, I've opted to mostly searching on Ebay. Is this a smart choice? Is it generally safe to buy pre-owned mice, or should I strive to snag a new/open box product? I don't live in the US nor in the EU, so I feel like I don't have many options. I also fear that if I buy third-party, I won't be able to return the mouse in case it won't fit my grip. I'm generally worried about my grip, as I feel I don't really have a way to test it on other mice.
I've also heard of people avoiding Razer products, and heard that the software is pretty crappy. Is this something I should seriously be worried about (Or rather, is this something I have the luxury to worry about, considering my budget)? For perspective, I'm coming from the horrid SetPoint software, and I don't really care about profiles, on-board memory or RGB.
To be completely honest, if you think there's a great option (budget and performance wise) without the tilt wheel, I'll consider trying to get used to it and make do. In conclusion
: I've searched for tilt wheel options across the web, probably with the Razer Basilisk series and the Logitech G502 series as my top contenders. What are your suggestions for the best mouse in this scenario? I'd be very thankful for any comment, recommendation and advice.
Thanks for reading!

2023.05.30 13:42 SchwartzArt Hot Take: There are several kinds of artistic expression...
Alright, bear with me: I was recently told by an user on reddit that he thinks a lot of the gripe between pro- and contra-ai people is due to the fact that the former are often programmers, who have an open source, altruistic view on everything, while the latter are often artists that are influenced by the idea of ownership and copyright and dont share thinks for others to learn.
I think that's a wrong take, because it is build on wrong assumptions. The person claimed that artists don't share their open PSD files like programmers share code on github, and therefore are not as open to share and have others learn from them as programmers. I get the idea, but think it is very wrong, since the majority of art doesn't even produce "open files" to share, and since what you can learn from an open file is very limited compared to a process video, for example, which the user dismissed as "curated experience" gatekeeping art.
But what that stance shows is that the minds of programmers (and it-people) and (many) visual artists (not that there is no overlap) seem very different indeed, and that a lot of gripe comes from that fact.
Here is my central idea of the difference:
the pro-ai side thinks that AI art simply helps people with their artistic expression, while the contra side sais it does too much itself.
for the pro side, that is irrelevant. For the anti side, it seems it is not. Not only because their jobs might be automated, but also because many have a different lookout on "expression".
For the pro side, expression seems simply visualizing stories and ideas they have in their head. (im am generalizing, but that's the majority of what i heard). The stories and ideas are theirs, the AI just executes the visualization on the technical side.
And i think that is fine. There is also truth to it. Denying an AI user visualizing a story they have in their head via Synthography would be like saying a Comic Writer has no part in a comic or a director has no part in a movie.
But it limits expression to a "service" to get ideas out there. But art was always about a lot more. It is never only just a vehicle to tell a story or make critical comments. It was always also a way to show the world how the artists sees things.
Impressionists didn't necessarily want to tell the story of a fisherman in the harbor in the early morning. It was simply the light that interested them. I miself am hugely influenced by comic artists like Risso or mignola, and when i walk along the street, i look at everyday stuff and think how i could group shadows or how i could translate soft edges into ink.
That's how style develops. And it might get difficult to grasp that concept, if you never created art "by hand". But giving glowing eyes to a cyborg via inpainting is not what this is. This is deciding what "glowing" looks to you in the first place. But since AI pretty much predefines "style" by it's training, and rests on the user picking stuff and artists as prompts they like, the personal expression of one self's views, without direct purpose to serve as a visualization of a story, is very limited.
That is a form of expression that AI simply can not do, inherently (yet?). But for many fields, like fine art, that is pretty much what it is about.
So, what do you think?
A starting point to understand that the pro and contra side might come from fundamentally different outlooks on the issue, and might understand each other better and maybe even work together if that is understood?

2023.05.30 13:40 unprotectedcitizen Some crazy shit happened to me
I was driving down the road, following my friend we were on the way to a restaurant. It was midnight, raining and foggy. I was about 2 car lengths behind him I didn’t know the area it was dark with little to no street lights. He was in front of me I was going under the speed limit, he saw what looked like a box or a rug in the road and was able to swerve, there were a couple of cars in the right hand lane but I didn’t see any flashing lights hazards or anything (where I live it’s pretty common to see cars on fire on the side of the road of crazy shit happening I was just minding my own business), there was also a truck in the middle of the road in the turning lane parked facing us with its lights off which I thought was unusual. I kept going. When he saw the object he swerved I didn’t have time to react and I didn’t see anything. Turns out it was a cop that had chased a wanted man into the road, he was on top of the guy trying to arrest him apparently. I noticed damage to my vehicle, my airbag didn’t deploy, I had some repair job done on my car a few weeks prior and they did a shitty job and I had parts fall off on me while driving before. I stopped immediately in the center turn lane got out and checked the damage. This lady started to yell at me saying I just killed some people, I was very confused and turned around and saw the officer in the road behind my car. I didn’t see the suspect and didn’t even know there was another person. I was straight in shock at this point I called my family told them what happened and then the police stopped me and took my phone, a cop ran up and asked me “ what did YOU DO?” I didn’t know how to answer so I stupidly said I don’t know what happened I guess they ran out in front of me” I was detained and the police asked me if I was drunk. Then asked me if I would do a sobriety test, in no way would I do any test I saw a cop and I immediately wanted my lawyer. They got a search warrant for my blood about 3 to 4 hours after the incident and I was charged with serious injury by vehicle dui and driving too fast for conditions and failure to maintain lane. I was just driving, they said some one saw me swerve around a bunch of cars which was bullshit. After a few days in jail I was able to post bond which I was told that I was lucky that happened and it cost A LOT of money. I’ve never been convicted of a crime also. I never saw any flashing lights and or police presence, I asked the cop why there was no flashing lights of flares or anything to alert me of there presence and he wouldn’t answer me. I was at the jail when the cop was speaking to another and told them the cop was chasing an armed suspect. I’m looking at 30 years in prison as per my lawyers are saying, the suspect was out on bond for being arrested 2 weeks prior. I found the incident report and no gun was found yet they still say he was armed in the media. They call me a drunk driver in the media and yet no evidence is even out there yet of said intoxication. I wasn’t drunk either, I was in shock I didn’t know what was happening, they are trying to pin this on me they talked about how the cop was “protecting his community” when he was endangering it. I’ve sold part of my inheritance to pay for lawyers but I still have no confidence in them, I’m terrified and lost countless hours of sleep and sanity, I feel like I have ptsd from this. I’ve lost job opportunities, I work in hospitality as well so I make money off tips. My lawyers say it will take a year to get the toxicology results back. I even asked the cop if if I had to sign his piece of paper and he told me yes which I signed begrudgingly. Now this cop is suing me for something he caused. Even going on the news and talking about how “ he doesn’t do this stuff for money” he exaggerated a whole bunch of facts of the incident as well saying he had to learn how to walk, when his go fund me says he was up walking around less than week after. The media is all on his side and dragging me through the mud for something he cause by chasing a convicted felon out on bond into the road. I got what I thought was the best lawyers I still have faith in them but I have little to no assurance, they won’t even schedule a time to meet me in person, I’ve sent them so much information and I don’t even think they looked at it. I sent them the incident report for the suspects case and he said, “ the incident reports that we need will be in discovery” I feel doomed and my life is over. One news agency reported an interview from the suspects family saying he had mental problems and he was being profiled. I feel like I’m being sent up River and made a political martyr I’m even wearing an ankle monitor I’m no flight risk or even a convicted criminal. I live in fear of people recognizing me or someone seeing my monitor at my new job( they don’t know this about me) I could get fired any moment I’m in an at will state. I can’t get a therapist either due to them being subpoenaed and it’s not protected info. This happened last year and I still have no movement on this, and the police officer is suing insurance trying to get paid and ride this wave as much as he can even tho he raised over 20k on his go fund me. Can someone please give me some assurance on this I feel like I’m losing my mind.

2023.05.30 13:39 theindoshow Good Morning Degens! How bout them Bears?? 🐻👀
| || |
Hope everybody had a good holiday. Some pretty drastic changes have taken place the last few days so let’s take a look at the recent activity just to see where we’re at. submitted by theindoshow to MemeticTraders [link] [comments]
Bronze Bear, my personal favorite, has made his way to the top of the memetic totem and maybe for the first time since I’ve been around. Previously holding the last place position for weeks, bronze bear has mauled his way into first boasting a heavy .369 floor! Reminds me of the bull days…. Cleaning up the floor with 2 sales this month, the last of the cheap bears are gone.
Bronze Bull charges into 2nd place holding a .25 floor. Steadily reminding in the top ranks Bronze Bulls last sales have proven that he won’t go easy. No sales this month and only 4 last month as holders continue to enforce the well deserved value. It is iconic after all.
Gold Hedge claims the 3rd place position with a .199 floor. Not trailing too far behind Bronze Bull Gold who once averaged a massive 22 available on the market now has been reduced to a mere 7. Gold saw 2 sales this month both at .17 also proving his worth in the market.
Chart Candle takes 4th with only .009 behind Gold. The once elusive sleeper has awoke and because a lot more available. While there might only be 7 on the market now there was only 1 or 2 for quite some time. Sales have been a bit scattered for Chart Candle but he remained steady in the middle of the pack for months. Definitely a solid piece!
Hedge Snoo takes the 5th place spot at a .163 floor. Only 1 sale this month and on a decreasing trend but the floor has remained solid. There are now only 5 available for purchase.
Burger Boi ties for the 6th/7th place spot with Buff Bear at a .15 floor. While the number of Burger Bois available has decreased, unfortunately so have the sales. Burger Boi has been on a decline going from a .2 sale last month down to the .05 recent sales. We can most likely assume those were sleepers and exit ops but time and sales will tell.
Buff Bear, who holds the 6/7th place position with Burger Boi, has held rather steady as far as sales go. 2 sales this month both at .99. A decent increase from the average .069 last month.
Bull now in 8th place Carrie’s a .129 floor. Bulls activity has been close to non existent for nearly 2 months. With no sales this month and only 2 last month it’s safe to say that Bill holders are just that, holders. With only 5 listed it will be interesting to see if the floor will remain or if someone will cave.
Hedge Wolf down to the 9th spot now holds a .111 floor. The recent sales support the current floor as the sales have a good average at ~.01. I was the last sale on wolf :) love those shoes!!
Despite his rocket bottom, Moonshot hangs in the 10 place spot. With a floor of .1 and an average sales of .08 the sales seem to support the current floor. Moonshot has seen a big decrease in activity with only 1 sale this month as opposed to the previous months 7 sales. That can be a good thing though if it is because people are holding.
Last but not least…. Radioactive. This poor guy has been the on the bottom for months. Such a cool avatar and the floor is only .06 right now. That seems to be the average for the last month too. With 7 on the market I’m tempted to grab one myself lol.
It’s always nice to see changes happening good or bad but especially when a Memetic Trader makes a big move in the runnings. Super happy to see Bronze Bear finally gets his time in the spot light!
On a side note, if you’re looking to trade any of yours off…. Holler at me!
Don’t forget you can now sell and buy your Memetic Traders for bitcone on Firstmate
2023.05.30 13:39 Then_Marionberry_259 MAY 30, 2023 AMX.V AMEX GENERATES MULTIPLE NEW GOLD AND VMS TARGETS AT PERRON FROM REGIONAL EXPLORATION PROGRAM
| || |https://preview.redd.it/0xuvq99zgy2b1.png?width=3500&format=png&auto=webp&s=675352c332bc7efe37e4a4bf7684e7e1f758b50a Montreal, Quebec--(Newsfile Corp. - May 30, 2023) - Amex Exploration Inc.(TSXV: AMX) (FSE: MX0) (OTCQX: AMXEF)("Amex or the Company") submitted by Then_Marionberry_259 to Treaty_Creek [link] [comments]
is pleased to announce and discuss results from its property-wide regional exploration campaign on Perron, including two geochemical surveys and exploration diamond drilling. Both the regional drilling and geochemical surveys successfully identified significant targets for follow-up in areas that have seen little to no drilling by Amex or previous operators (Figures 1, 4, & 5
). Amex plans to expand and tighten up the spacing of its geochemical dataset, and conduct follow-up drilling on these new targets over the coming months. Geochemical Exploration Programs Generate both Gold and VMS Targets Ionic Leach Geochemical Soil Survey
In the fall of 2022, Amex, in conjunction with Vision Geochemistry and Laurentia Exploration, conducted an Ionic Leachgeochemical soil survey, covering approximately two thirds of the Perron property. The soil samples were analyzed by the Ionic LeachTM method (ALS Global), which measures the concentration of metal ions in soil. The Ionic Leach method aims to detect mineralization through deep overburden coverage. Geochemicalanomalies sourced from ore-grade mineralization often present sharp and high-amplitude signals, which are ideal for drill targeting. The survey was designed to focus with higher resolution over the Beaupre Block and along the Normetal Mine Horizon, and with lower resolution over the Normetal Volcanic Complex and the Normetal Southern Block. The results for zinc and gold from the Ionic Leach survey are both presented in Figure 2
The Ionic Leach survey highlights a significantly large zinc anomaly (~600m by ~300m) along the eastern portion of the Normetal Mine Horizon. This anomaly is associated with copper, lead, silver and gold, indicative of VMS-type base metal mineralization. On the regional scale, several gold exploration targets were also identified, including:
- Northeastern corner of the property, near the contact between the Normetal Volcanic Complex and the Gale Group basalt and iron formations;
- Southern-central portion of the property where the Late Diabase Dyke intrusion contacts the Normetal South Block; and
- Western area of the Beaupre Block where the Beaupre rhyolite meets the Beaupre basalt and the Normetal South Block.
It should be noted that there is a general enrichment of gold anomalism within the Beaupre Block rhyolites, consistent with the lithological units that host gold mineralization at Perron. An internal analysis was completed to assess the correlation between gold signal strength and the overburden thickness logged from existing drillholes. The analysis determined that the gold anomalies were generally absent in areas where greater than 20m overburden thickness predominates, suggesting that the migration of ions from mineralized zones were unable to reach the upper soil horizons in these areas, including the Denise Zone and a portion of the Team Zone. However, the results from the Ionic Leach geochemical survey show a strong response over the known gold zones located in the western portion of the Beaupre Block, including the Grey Cat Zone, Gratien Zone and the N110 Gold Corridor, where overburden thickness is generally much less than 20m in thickness. Spruce-Bark Biogeochemical Survey
In the summer and fall of 2022, Amex, also in conjunction with Vision Geochemistry and Laurentia Exploration, conducted a property-wide spruce-bark sampling biogeochemical program. Similar to the Ionic Leach geochemical soil survey, this method aims to locate mineralized areas with limited or no rock exposure due to extensive overburden cover. Black spruce was used because it has the capacity to absorb and retain metals from weathered bedrock and groundwater through their deep root systems. The regional survey was designed to target VMS-type mineralization with high-resolution over the polymetallic QF Zone and lower resolution over the balance of the Perron property.
The results for cadmium and gold from the spruce-bark biogeochemical survey are both presented in Figure 3
. For detection of VMS mineralization, cadmium is presented instead of zinc. Because cadmium is geochemically similar to zinc, and unlike zinc, it is not an essential element for plant metabolism, cadmium often serves as a better pathfinder element to target zinc mineralization in biogeochemical surveys.
Results from the property-wide biogeochemical survey delineated a broad VMS target in the dacite-andesite fold of the Normetal Volcanic Complex, signified by the strong cadmium anomalism. The spruce-bark sampling results also show gold anomalies coincident with the Ionic Leach geochemical soil survey results, located in the northeastern corner of the property (Normetal Volcanic Complex and the Gale Group basalt and iron formations) and the southern-central portion of the property (Late Diabase Dyke intrusion contacts the Normetal South Block).

During the winter season of 2023, Amex' main drilling focus was on regional exploration in areas that are typically more difficult to access in warmer seasons. This drilling was primarily focused on the newly identified N110 Gold Corridor, which is located north of the Gratien Gold Zone, and the eastern extents of the property along the projected extension of the Beaupre Rhyolite, which is the host to the majority of the gold identified on the Perron project to date (Figure 4
). To the west, at the N110 Gold Corridor, Amex has intersected numerous veins and veinlets containing visible gold over short widths. The N110 Gold Corridor was identified through a structural interpretation of the Company's magnetic dataset and scattered historical gold intercepts, including, 3.18 g/t Au over 4.50 m in hole PEX-21-054 and 2.56 g/t Au over 3.30 m in hole PEX-21-065. The results of drilling at the N110 Gold Corridor will be announced once received and compiled in the coming weeks, but preliminarily the Company is very encouraged by the amount of visible gold identified in the structure and has planned follow up work to look for high grade ore shoots within this +1km area of gold mineralization (Figure 4
Figure 4. Plan view of the N110 Gold Corridor with visible gold spatial distribution (red stars in the figure) from the 2023 drilling campaign. https://preview.redd.it/rz0hz5jzgy2b1.jpg?width=2607&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6d54f30f7ef5109350fca0cca58829e779e4c4dd
On the eastern side of the project, Amex initially set out to test the projected extension of the Beaupre rhyolite, where the Normetal and Perron faults meet. To date the Beaupre rhyolite has not been intersected to the East of a large diabase dyke; however, Amex intersected VMS-type base metal mineralization (Figure 5
). This drilling was done in advance of receiving the geochemical results, and the coincidence of the VMS-type drill intercepts and the very large (greater than 600 m) strike, paired with a strong multielement geochemical anomaly (Zn-Cu-Pb-Ag-Au) are very encouraging. Three drillholes crosscut semi-massive to massive lenses and returned zinc and silver intercepts as shown in Table 1
and Figures 5 and 6
. See Table 2
for drillhole coordinates. These initial massive and semi-massive intervals, spread over approximately 600 metres of strike, appear to have only intersected the periphery of the geochemical anomaly, indicating a potentially larger VMS body may be located at the core of the anomaly. Amex is currently conducting borehole EM surveys in the area and plans to drill test any anomalies identified through this survey. Amex will also tighten up its geochemical survey over the balance of the Mine Horizon geological unit, host to the historical Normetal mine, Normetmar deposit, the QF Zone, and this newly identified area of VMS-type mineralization.

Jacques Trottier, Ph.D., Executive Chairman of Amex Exploration commented, "We are very pleased to see the geochemical targets that have been generated through these inexpensive regional surveys. I am particularly intrigued by the VMS-type zinc, silver, lead, and cadmium anomaly on the eastern side of the property, adjacent to and on strike with the past-producing Normetal mine, the Normetmar deposit, and our own QF Zone, as well as the new targets that occur both in the northern and southern extents of the project which have seen very little drilling, as well as the N110 area. Our drilling to the east seems to corroborate the strong geochemical signature and we have drilled several intervals of zinc and silver mineralization, indicative of a possibly significant VMS system in the area. Since our drilling was before receiving the geochemical survey results, we were not targeting the VMS mineralization. The fact that we have intersected VMS type mineralization on the very edge of this anomaly bodes well for a significant new discovery."
Trottier continued," On the gold front, the N110 Gold Corridor is showing a lot of promise, with visible gold intersected in nearly every drill hole. This is a new promising structure and we plan to test this area in detail this summer looking for secondary structures where gold may have concentrated. On the whole our regional exploration program has been a complete success and has generated numerous blue-sky targets at Perron. At the same time, we continue to define the known gold zones and in particular we will be focusing defining and expanding the Team Zone which was found in 2022." Qualified Person and QAQC
Jérôme Augustin P.Geo. Ph.D., (OGQ 2134), an Independent Qualified Person as defined by Canadian NI 43-101 standards, has reviewed and approved the geological information reported in this news release. The drilling and geochemistry campaigns and the quality control program have been planned and supervised by Jérôme Augustin. Core logging and sampling were completed by Laurentia Exploration.
The quality assurance and quality control protocol include insertion of one blank, one standard and one duplicate every 10 samples, in addition to the regular insertion of blank, duplicate, and standard samples accredited by ALS Canada Ltd. during the analytical process. Additionally, sample weight is taken prior shipment to validate sample identity. Gold values are estimated by fire assay with finish by atomic absorption. Zinc, Copper and Silver values are estimated by four acid digestion multi elements Inductively Coupled Plasma - Atomic Emission Spectroscopy (ICP-AES), ME-ICP61. Zinc values over 1%, copper values over 1% and silver values over 100 g/t are estimated by four acid digestion ICP-AES, OG62.
The soil samples were sent to ALS Canada for processing and Ionic LeachTM analysis (ME-MS23). In addition, all soil samples were separately tested for paste pH analysis before and after the additional of HCl (OA-ELE07 and OA-ELE076AP). Ionic Leach samples used a static leaching process using sodium cyanide with a highly sensitive ICP-MS finish capable of sub-ppb detection.
To ensure consistency in the interpretation of the soil data, a geochemist conducted a comprehensive review of the soil descriptions and photos of the collected soil. Due to the heterogeneous overburden cover, the dataset was geochemically levelled using the z-score method. Z-scores are commonly used in statistical analysis to normalize populations of data, and therefore establish meaningful connections between datasets. A higher z-score indicates a data point that is more anomalous in relation to the rest of the dataset. For instance, if a data point has a z-score of 2, it means that its value is two standard deviations (2σ) greater than the mean value of the dataset, equivalent to the 97.7th percentile.
The biogeochemical (bark) samples were sent to Activations Laboratories Ltd. (ACTLABS) Canada. The bark samples were dried below 60°C. Dry vegetation samples are dissolved in acid and analyzed by ICP-MS (code 2G).
The Qualified Person has not completed sufficient work to verify the historic information on the Property or neighbouring projects, particularly in regards to historical drill results. However, the Qualified Person believes that drilling and analytical results were completed to industry standard practices. The information provides an indication of the exploration potential of the Property but may not be representative of expected results. About Amex

2023.05.30 13:37 Alternative-Chip5566 Does anyone else feel like their mental health has drastically undermined their potential/career growth? Seriously considering leaving my current corporate job that probably sounds perfect on paper.
Okay, so a few things I (M26) would like to preface to help shed some light on the situation a little more clearly:.
I've struggled with clinical depression for the better part of the past 9 years which, looking back on it all, has definitely influenced some major life decisions and makes it hard for me at times to determine if I'm thinking logically, or if it's my brain negatively impacting the way I'm perceiving everything. (Been in therapy rather consistently the past few years & have tried multiple antidepressants, but haven't found any that don't have serious side effects that create their own set of problems).
I just bought my first home in the middle of last year which is the only debt that I currently have (no student loans/car payment/ etc.) and while the mortgage isn't bad ($735 + utilities), it turns out that there are probably $30-40K worth of repairs needed which means I have less financial flexibility than if I had decided to keep renting.
While I hate to admit it, I'm absolutely terrible at managing my finances to the point that I currently have $1.02 in my savings account. Theoretically, I should have right around $1,000-1,200 disposable income every month, but yet it's not uncommon to find myself in the negative prior to payday each month (government job so I get paid once a month). I grew up in a superrrr low SES household and while that shouldn't be an excuse, I've found that it's made it hard for me to move away from the "spend it while you have it" mindset. The fact that I don't have a savings makes me hesitate to consider leaving the stable job that I have.
I currently have my bachelor's degree in exercise science, have 2.5 years of corporate/healthcare experience, and worked in the oilfields during the summers to help pay for school so I've seen the pros/cons of blue-collar vs. white-collar jobs.
All of that to say:I've been at my current job for about 2.5 years now (healthcare) and I'm trying to determine how much of my discontentment is circumstantial (the job/cultures/responsibilities), and how much of it is me self-sabotaging what I'm sure many people would consider a "dream job." Most days, I find myself having to give myself a pep talk while opening the computer each morning -- making me terrified to think that this might be what the next 30 years of my life look like from M-F. There are a lot of pros/cons (both at my job and life circumstances outlined above) that have me trying to decide if I should just grind it out for a few more months and then take something less stressful, more physically engaging, more potential for upward mobility and/or compensation, or just keep my nose to the grindstone at my current job. I've considered learning a trade or just taking a drastic pay cut and doing something that allows me to leave work at work and be more "engaged" from 9-5. I keep going back and forth because some weeks are much better than others and I'm highly motivated to get things done and "climb the ladder." Most weeks, however, aren't so grand. A few pros/cons:
- Current employer matches 100% up to 10% of 401K contributions
- Permanently get to work remote (free to travel as long as I deliver on job duties)
- A LOT of autonomy
- Very supportive supervisors
- Youngest on the team by far and approximately 60-75% of the team will be retired (or close to retirement) within the next 3-5 years. This is also a bit of a "con" though as it can be harder to relate to team members.
- Approx. 35 paid vacation/holiday days per year
- Really don't feel like I'm building anything for myself. Like, working towards whatever it was that I was put here on earth to do... if that makes sense? Most days I feel like a paper jockey and that the work I'm doing really isn't all that meaningful. I know it is in the big picture, but I know that I'm easily replaceable.
- Lack of interaction with people my own age makes it feel somewhat isolated at times.
- Lack of performance-based compensation/upward mobility. Some team members are doing 90% of a given task while others contribute 10% and get paid the same.
- Compensation for job rules depends FAR more on the overall number of years experience, and far less on skills/certifications/annual performance. Because of that, I'm making $10,000-$20,000/year less than older team members who are performing similar job duties. Is this normal and I'm just ignorant as to how the world works?
- I have severe imposter syndrome because while I'm very capable of doing the job, the lack of explicitly-stated responsibilities associated with my position means that most days I feel like I'm doing a terrible job and that I'll never feel proficient.

2023.05.30 13:36 NobelDragon Tow truck drivers reckless driving
Any of you seen some of the tow truck drivers reckless behaviour on the roads? This morning driving a company I work for truck ute, and the usual way I drive to my job location was pretty jammed up this morning and it's single lane.
Whilst I nearly got up to the round about I notice a small tow truck speeding along the left side of the shoulder and nearly hitting the vehicle I was in just, because it couldn't wait in line and nearly cuts off another car when it turned onto Anketell road.
No lights, no vehicle it was towing, just impatience. I know they arent emergency vehicles but when do they get into trouble for breaking the law?

There's a dark patch at the top and on the right side. It's most noticeable on grey screens like this, and not noticeable at all when the screen is black. What is this and is there anything I can do about it? Thanks. submitted by Weeeooojr to Monitors [link] [comments]

2023.05.30 13:33 leela7226 Fade haunt lineups on Split, B site retake
Hey there, dear Fade mains! I recently started farming lineups on every map, and now I'm working on Split. Somehow, even though I researched the existing lineups, I ended up making a bunch myself, because I thought the ones I found were not enough. And I'm in a pickle because Split is quite a difficult map height-wise.
Since I try to throw my haunts as high as possible, with the defender side on B it's not easy. I was trying to make up a lineup from B Alley to highlight anything on B site, ended up having two lineups - one lights up what's under heaven (honestly, a waste, because it's literally 1/5th of the whole site, and it may be easier to take control of heaven during retake - and I have a better lineup from there), the second one clears B back and B main entrance.
So finally, a question: do you have any lineups that land on the top of the roof between B alley and B back? Or any lineups for the retake scenario from B alley?
P.S. not sure if it's a suitable flair for this kind of post, sorry in advance!

2023.05.30 13:29 ZDSpr Dollar Tree English muffins
I've never been a big fan of Dollar Tree and was even less inclined to go there after they raised their prices. But a few months ago, I discovered that they carried basic breads from regional rather than from big-brand bakeries, and the English muffins in my area are amazing. They're more like crumpets--well done on one side but soft on the other and much more light and airy than even Thomas's. And they are about half the price of even Aldi's generic version. I've always loved English muffins, but these have become an actual obsession for me. So good...

2023.05.30 13:28 WendyBirb Took my3 first dose, I think it could change my life?
I am on a troche of 50 and took my first dose on Saturday. I made a little nest of blankets and pillows in my backyard and listened to music while my friend hung out nearby. It was 24 degrees c with a light breeze. 10/10 would recommend this environment.
Tbh I didn't expect much. I have tried So.Many.Things. to help with my depression, anxiety and CPTSD (additionally I have ADHD and am autistic so it's a real spicy party in my brain). My efforts have been enough to keep me alive and varying degrees of functional but barely. I have felt for a long time to be slowly but surely walking towards my breaking point, the day I would finally be unable to will myself to keep going. My specialist suggested Ketamine after trying all the meds. And I mostly expected it to be like the others, maybe a slight improvement but with more negative side-effects than useful change.
I have always been very sensitive to medication (l usually take child doeses) and thought the 50 would probably have a noticable effect if not helpful. It did have an effect.
I don't think I have ever felt that safe, it was like my nervous system calmed down, like actually calmed down for the first time I can remember. I processed trauma I have been trying to work through for years in therapy. I get choked up thinking about it. I've spent a lot of time beating myself up over my lack of progress. But realizing how ready and willing I was to work through it and how much I just needed the right support, honestly feels as impactful as the processing itself.
My emotions felt safe but clear, not hidden behind mist. I could touch them without feeling overwhelmed or frightened. It was, kind of life changing.
It was also intense and exhausting. And continues to be, I can still feel my thoughts and emotions restructuring and shifting. And with journalling and breathwork, it's been an emotional rollercoaster but I am really glad to be on it.
It's wild to feel like I can actually see a future for myself, to feel like I can breathe, to feel like my body isn't weighed down while simultaneously attempting to flutter away. I have no template for feeling this way, I feel like I'm going to be okay. Like maybe, I might actually be okay.
Idk, we will see. I can tell I am still holding back but feel even okay with that. It feels okay to move at a pace that is safe for me.
I guess, I just wanted to share.
I am hopeful.

2023.05.30 13:16 Downtown-Cap210 What to expect with the Derma roller and thread lift?
After rolling, the skin may:
Be red for several hours, some of the timeless
Feel like a sun-related burn
Expand at first (extremely minor)
Feel like your face is beating and the blood is circling Less normally, takes a chance with include
Dull or light spots on the skin
Lines on the face (“cable car track” scarring)
Mouth blister discharge up
Enlarged lymph hubs
Individuals frequently botch the minor enlarging they experience for the blue phenomenon, however, the plumping impact you see at first will die down within a couple of days. In any case, as referenced prior, continued rolling has super-durable outcomes!
There will be some minor erythema (redness) for around 2 or 3 days, and the skin could begin stripping. If this happens, do whatever it takes not to pick at it! The stripping will tumble off normally over the long haul. Hardened steel versus titanium derma rollers Dermaroller treatment in Bangalore
accompanies either hardened steel or titanium needles. Titanium is more solid since it’s a more grounded combination than tempered steel. This implies the needles will endure longer and the sharpness will not dull as fast.
In any case, tempered steel is innately more sterile. It’s additionally keener and dulls all the more rapidly. Treated steel is what clinical experts, tattoo craftsmen, and acupuncturists use.
In any case, in every practical sense, the two kinds will finish similar work.
Dermarollers can be viewed on the web. You don’t have to overcomplicate things and get a costly one. The less expensive ones will turn out great.
A few organizations likewise offer all-inclusive bundles, offering both roller and serums, even though their items might be pricier than buying everything independently. What’s in store after a thread lift in Bangalore
Recuperation after an effective thread lift is very negligible. While there might be some noticeable expansion and swelling, you can return to work immediately assuming that you’d like.
Results ought to be evident just after the strings are established, yet you might see more in the long periods just after they are embedded, as enlarging and swelling begin to die down.
Results from a thread lift aren’t intended to be extremely durable. Fruitful impacts ordinarily last from 1 to 3 years. Like other dissolvable dermal fillers, for example, Botox, the strings utilized in the method will ultimately be consumed by the tissue under your skin.
After a thread lifts, you can continue your typical daily practice. Your supplier might prompt you not to rub your face energetically and to try not to rest on your side in the underlying weeks following the system.
The American Culture of Plastic Specialists prompts that you skirt your day-to-day cream for the initial not many weeks after a thread lift, and lay down with your headset up to try not to turn over onto the recently positioned stitches.
You’ll likewise be encouraged to keep away from saunas and extreme focus exercises for the main week or so after the thread lift is performed. Planning for a thread lift
After talking with your supplier and booking your arrangement, you might be given a few rules for do’s and don’ts to get ready for your thread lift in Bangalore. Do
Illuminate your PCP regarding any meds you’re utilizing preceding your technique
Attempt to unwind and stay away from stressors the night before your arrangement

2023.05.30 13:15 SubstancePlus7032 What advice do you folks have on making the most out of my first year as a paramedic? With other questions
Iv been and EMT for 3 years. Finished my medic program and passed my NREMT-P 2 weeks ago. Today is my first “real” shift as a paramedic. I am fortunate to say that I have got some great experience as an EMT and worked with some great medics.
How can I make the most out of my first year as a medic?
Best ways to grow everyday?
Any recommended books? I recently ordered/reading -People care by Thom Dick -Anyone can intubate by Christine Whitten -Verbal Judo audiobook by George Thompson -How to make friends and influence people by Dale Carnegie -Bates guide to Physical Examination -Iv read 1000 naked strangers
Like most new medics, I’m nervous but I am going to do my best to learn/absorb the good and the bad experiences like a sponge. While doing my best to stay humble and keep an open mind.
Random 3am thoughts: -How do you you experienced medics determine when to intubate and take someone’s airway? What signs might you look for in making that decision. When may you use meditation assisted intubation(non RSI), vs deciding to intubate someone who is semi conscious? In school, it’s easy on a mannequin. This is a grey area for me that I think a lot about for some reason haha.
-Similar question for cardio version, when may you take the time to give some sedation vs just slapping on pads and an IV and lighting them up?
-Advice on making the decision to fly a patient vs transport?
-Advice on taking control of a bad Trauma scene?
-What is the best way to call med control for advice? Something along the lines of “Hey doc, pull up a chair and grab a pen, this is what I got, this is what I am thinking, I’m nervous as a barn cat, do you agree, what do you recommend?”
-Best way to gather thoughts being woken up at 3am confused, and heading to a bad call?
Any other tips to ward off the bad spells, and becoming the best paramedic I can be, is greatly appreciated. I love this career field and becoming the best paramedic I can be is very important to me. These are some pretty vague questions, answer as you please. Thank you all for your time🇺🇸
