Couldn't get a job because the HR person had bad phone coverage

2020.09.18 10:19 likeluis Couldn't get a job because the HR person had bad phone coverage

I'm not in the USA, but I applied to a position in an IT company where they required a high level of knowledge of the English language, as it's outsourced work for a state agency that administers vehicle registration and driver licensing.
They saw my CV and they were very interested in interviewing me, especially since I have other specific skills that are made me stand out from other applicants (according to the first email I received from one of the HR people).
Fast forward a few days letter, I get an appointment for a virtual interview and I was very calm and ready for it. I get a call from a guy from the HR department through Skype, and he mentions that he’ll call another person to evaluate my knowledge.
To my surprise, the HR guy instead of adding the other person on Skype, he physically used his telephone to call. I hear the voice of a woman and I had trouble understanding what she was saying so I asked “Could you please repeat again?” several times, but unfortunately, the call dropped over and over again, and the HR guy decided to halt the interviewing process. He mentioned he was going to call me later and let me know through email about another date for an interview.
10 minutes later, I receive an email saying that unfortunately my understanding of the English language was "not sufficient" for the position and they wouldn’t move forward with the recruiting process.
Although this happened some time ago, I’m still quite pissed off about it, but I guess I dodged a bullet.

2020.09.18 08:28 p0ggs Section 21, Periodic Tenancy, Immuno-compromised, Furloughed. Advice Needed!

Hello, would appreciate any advice...
I've been served a section 21 notice on my London flat, which expires in October. I've checked the conditions of the notice and everything seems legit (EPC, notice period, etc). I've been looking for another place, but haven't found anywhere suitable/within budget. The landlord wants me out so he can sell the property. I've offered to allow viewings if I can stay, but he's not interested and wants me out asap.
I have viewed a few local properties, but as I'm immuno-compromised, I'm reluctant to continue doing so. I've been in this property several years and have always paid my rent in full and on time - which I intend to continue, despite current financial hardship. I don't want to cause drama or be difficult, but I don't feel it is fair to force me out, given the pandemic seems to be worsening considerably at the moment. Aside from the physical and emotional stress of moving to a new property, I would have to take on a new tenancy agreement in an uncertain time, and will be out of pocket through removals, agency fees, reference fees, end-of-tenancy fees, funding a new deposit, etc. Additionally - I have a pet (reducing my rental options) and I've been on a reduced-salary, followed by furlough since May (I dread to think how that will affect my financial credibility).
I understand the courts will resume possession hearings next week. If I stay in the flat beyond the S21 notice date, how long would I have before a possession order is granted? And what should or shouldn't I tell the letting agent in the meantime, to extend my right to stay as long as possible, without breaking any laws? No doubt they will be in touch to arrange vacation of the property in the next couple of weeks.
Many thanks!

2020.09.18 08:27 jack_mcnasty987 I accidentally put wrong dates on my resume and I don’t want to not get job. Do you think this ruined it?

I just got my first entry level job with a good company. I have been working a service job for the last year at an insurance agency to build experience. I honestly thought they would only care about this position because all my other jobs throughout college didn’t really matter(call center ages ago, and restaurant jobs) . I guessed on these dates so they were off (I accidentally put wrong year of start at my first job a call center in early college) hire right keeps messaging me that the dates they have received were wrong. I ended up financially taking a break from school and guessed on my credits I have received. I don’t know how many credits I have earned to be honest. I didn’t think it would matter because it is not a degree required position and I put that I didn’t finish college. The interview went great and they really liked me and want to hire me. Do you think I will not get the job due to these reasons? Any help or advice would be appreciated

2020.09.18 07:26 JagdKitty DISCREETOFFICESERVICES.COM... Chapter 1

(OBLIGATORY WARNING: The novelist in me is raising its head and I will be exploring this story line from time to time as well as writing other chapters in my Carol thread. Not every post in DOS.COM will have the expected steamy sex that readers on a site such as this expect. I hope you will still enjoy this and further chapters as they appear.)
My phone rang as I stepped from the train onto the platform. My commute from the suburbs to the city had ended in its predictable way. The call from Mom to catch up on my life since yesterday. Because I was always up and away from the house before mom and dad were awake, the morning phone call took the place of the conversations we used to have over breakfast before school. The usual pleasantries followed. (When was I going to look for a job better than being an office temp? A job that offered benefits and security...) She'd just begun to express wishes that I find a guy (I wasn't getting any younger... Grandchildren would be nice to have around while she was still young enough to enjoy them...), at that point, pleading being in a hurry, I hung up and checked my messages to make certain I knew the correct time of my first appointment. I had plenty of time so, stopping for coffee, I walked the short distance to the apartment I kept in the city that my parents knew nothing about. I'd been giving serious thoughts to moving out of my parent's house and to the city. I was almost 20 and two years out of high school. At the point of my life where most girls my age were in college, married, working and living in their own place or all of the above. Money was no longer an issue, but... But, the city was less than an hour's ride by train from our suburb. If my mom knew I had an apartment she would be dropping by at all hours of the day and any day of the week. I'd never be able to keep my secret a secret. Instead, I lived at home in the bedroom which had been mine since I was sleeping in a cradle. Mom and I still rode bikes together. Shopped together. Gardened, talked and watched weepy-eye Lifetime/Hallmark movies together. To keep Mom happy I even went out on dates occasionally. Dad? Oh, he huffed and puffed and bellowed like an elephant wondering, 'when are you going to leave the damned nest so your mom and me can have some damned peace and quiet around here!' Then, on Saturday mornings after falling asleep on the couch during a late night binge of watching the afore-mentioned weepy-eye movies, I'd find a blanket covering me and Dad making a huge breakfast while bellowing, 'eat you idiot and put some meat on those skinny bones so you have the energy to find your own damned place and leave me in peace!' Yeah, I've had Daddy figured out and wrapped around my little finger since I took my first steps. Thinking of steps, I looked at my watch and increased the pace of mine. Two blocks from the train stop I pushed open the doors of the brownstone building my apartment was in. Checking my mailbox first (empty) I ran the stairs for the cardio. On the third floor landing I met Danny heading down. A junior in college, Danny lived in the apartment below mine. Jeans, t-shirt and looking delicious as always in a rumpled way. I knew he had a little crush on me and wanted to ask me out. School work, part-time jobs, lack of money and a bad case of shyness kept him from asking. Exchanging heys, I was several steps past when I heard him stumble and almost fall with the thud of a bookbag hitting the steps echoing in the stairwell. Grinning, I tried very hard not to laugh. I just knew he'd turned his head to check out my butt and had tripped. I stopped on the landing above his and watched as he fumbled for his dropped bag. "You ok, Danny?" "Ahh, yeah. Just clumsy, I guess. You know," Danny changed the subject by pointing to my coffee. "It'd be cheaper to brew coffee instead of going out to buy one every morning." I'd made up the story of going out for coffee when Danny had met me coming in as he was going out once too often. "I know. I guess I just like the taste." "Hey, Olivia," Danny said as I was turning to go the remaining steps to my floor. "Thanks. I know I haven't mentioned this but, having someone as quiet as you above me, I mean, living in the apartment above mine, it's really great. I saw the hardwood floors when I moved in and I was afraid that I'd be hearing the clump, clump, clump of footsteps at all hours. How someone as big as you can move so quietly, well, when I'm trying to study it really means a lot." Since the reason I was away and not in the apartment at night would be too hard to explain I just took the compliment with one reservation. "Someone as big as I am?" "I meant as tall as you are. You're nowhere near fat! You have an incredible... I mean, your body is totally... Ahh..." The laughter I'd kept in earlier bubbled out and I took pity on the shy nerd. "It's fine, Danny, and thanks for the stammered out almost compliment. I gotta run to get to work on time but score an A on a test for me today." I had a corner apartment on the top floor. No clumping footsteps above me to have to put up with. Closing the door behind me I tossed my bag and keys on the table beside the door and breathed in the sweet smell of privacy. This was my first apartment and although I didn't spend much time here, it was still mine. All mine! I could decorate it the way I liked. Paint the walls the colors I liked. Buy furniture that I liked. I could even run naked through all the rooms. Cook in the nude. Throw caution to the wind and even fry bacon in the nude! Tried that once. Hot bacon grease spattering out of the skillet had me grabbing for an apron very quickly. So, ok, probably wouldn't fry bacon in the nude again but the important point was I could if I wanted to. Going to the bedroom, I stripped and tossed all my clothes onto the bed before opening the doors to my closets. The outfits I wore to and from home was for dad and mom's benefit. The clothes I kept here in my apartment were my real work clothes. Shopping in stores I'd never be able to afford on my pay as an office temp had filled my closets with beautiful clothes. Knowing who I was meeting, I picked out a backless, black dress and held it to my front. Shaking my head, imagining what my dad would say if he saw me headed out the door for a date in a dress this short and without a bra, I laid it on the bed. Hose, garter belt and panties, also black, joined the dress. Stooping, I surveyed the choices I had in heels and picked my ash colored Christian Louboutin's. Unlike many of my friends who exceeded 5'8", I liked being tall. Unless I'd had another growth spurt I was still just over six foot tall in my bare feet. The four inch heels of my Louboutin's would elevate me to over 6'4" and the client I was seeing this morning liked tall women. With wardrobe picked out that left the proper handbag to complete the assembly. Transferring what I'd need from the department store handbag I'd brought from home to my ash colored Celine handbag I kept here took only a minute. Earrings and rings I was wearing were removed and laid on my dress from home where I couldn't help but remember them. My watch was the only indulgence I allowed myself to wear home. It was exhausting enough to remember to remove and leave behind my 'city' jewelry. Luckily, my parents wouldn't know a four thousand dollar Cartier Rose Gold watch from a ten dollar watch from Wal-Mart. Checking the time before removing it I headed into my bathroom to shower. My actions this Monday morning would probably confuse almost everyone. But, there was a perfectly logical explanation that I hoped I'd never have to use. You see, a month after graduating high school, I actually was working for an office temp agency. Living at home to save money while trying to decide ja oder nein (three years of high school German) on the whole college question. I'd finished working for the day at the job I'd been sent to and was in front of the building trying to flag down a taxi when a lady had approached, handed me a card and offered me a job if I was interested. DISCREETOFFICESERVICES.COM... The address on the card she'd handed me was in the same building where I'd just worked but on a different floor. Inviting me upstairs to her office, she'd poured coffee and... ****************** "Discreet? Sounds like you work for the CIA or something," I joked, setting my purse down beside my chair and accepting the coffee mug Marla offered me. "Or something," Marla replied with a small smile, sitting in the high backed, reclining leather chair behind her desk. Holding her coffee mug in both hands she leaned back in her chair. "I've noticed you working in the building this past week. You're a very pretty young lady. Head cheerleader and Prom Queen in high school, I bet." "Thanks for the compliments." I felt the heat of a blush on my cheeks. I'd never felt comfortable accepting compliments for things I'd been born with. After all, how much credit can you take for being the recipient of a lucky arrangement of bits and pieces of genetic code? "But you lost your bet. Cheerleader, yes, but not the head cheerleader and I got enough votes to be a member of the Queen's Court but not the Prom Queen." "If I lost, then you won. I've got a job offer for you. You see, ten years ago I was sitting in a chair much like the one you are sitting in now and looking across a desk very much like this one. I was being offered the same opportunity I'm offering to you. Different office, different city, of course, but the offer was the same." "And in just ten years you worked your way up to being the boss? Or CEO, or whatever your job title is? You must have been very hard working." "I was. Also, the job I was offered, and am now offering to you, has sort of an expiration date. You either move up to management in a few years or you leave the field entirely. Eight months ago I chose to move here, open my own agency and move up to management." "Well, you must be doing something right. I mean, your office décor cost thousands! I measured an office to help order furniture for a new Vice-President of a company I temped at. I looked at the catalog they were ordering furniture from so I know a little about how much furniture like this costs." I reached out to run my hand over the smooth surface of her desk. "Solid walnut. Probably cost more than I'll make in a year on my salary." "Very perceptive. So, in a nutshell, let me make my pitch to you. Out there," Marla began with a graceful, encompassing wave of her hand. "Out there in the city, there are hundreds, thousands, of successful men and women. They became successful because of long hours of hard work. Long hours of hard work which left them exhausted and with few opportunities to enjoy the fruits of their hard work. "They had little time or energy to socialize, to date, to meet new people, to fall in love. Some of them remained single. Some settled for 'good enough'," Marla said with air quotes. "Most of my target demographic are in their middle-to-late thirties. All of them well off financially and tired of being single. Tired of having settled for 'good enough'. "They're out there looking for the excitement that was denied to them when they were on their way up the corporate ladder and not so well off financially. Unfortunately for them and fortunately for me and perhaps you, a leopard doesn't change its spots so easily. They are still stuck on that corporate treadmill. Long hours of hard work is all they've ever known for so long that getting off that treadmill seems impossible for them." Marla shrugged her shoulders to express bewilderment at the idea that people would voluntarily work so hard. Rising from her chair, Marla walked from behind her desk to the chair beside mine and sat. "But... Isn't there always a but? But now they have corner offices and private secretaries. Very large bank balances. Huge stock portfolios. Plush houses or mansions in gated communities. Expensive cars. And the damned fools are still working over a hundred hours a week! Now that they have everything they once thought they wanted, the idiots still can't stop from working themselves into an early grave. "But... There's that 'but' again. But humans want excitement, crave intimacy. Since my clients seem incapable of relaxing and taking the time to go out and find that intimacy, I provide them with intimacy. Any type of intimacy they desire, when and where they want. Do you understand?" It took me several seconds but the light bulb finally lit up over my head. "You're a Madame?!" Marla shrugged again and held her hands up and out, "What's in a name? Madame, CEO, company president. Call girl, escort, consort, mistress, hooker, whore... All the same thing. A rose by any other name... The only thing which changes is the degree of respectability the public attaches to the name." Marla sat back in her chair and asked me, "What would you say if I told you that all women become whores at times?" "I'd say that you're wrong," I replied forcefully. "My mom would never become a whore." "Really? Give me your definition of a whore?" "A woman who has sex for money." "So you agree that if a woman has sex for compensation she's a whore. But money isn't the only form of compensation there is. So now expand that definition. My definition of a whore would be... Any woman who has sex for any reason other than her own enjoyment. Are you a virgin, Olivia?" "Umm, no..." "Do you think that you've whored yourself?" "NO!" "Really?" Marla said with a tone of satisfaction in her voice. As if she'd already won our argument. "Ever been with a guy out on a date and he's all over you? He's whining about how horny he is. Pawing at your boobs and between your legs? Trying to undo your jeans? Your bra? You don't feel like having sex but to keep the guy happy you've gotten naked and spread your legs? Perhaps given him a blowjob or hand job just to satisfy and calm him down? Stop his whining? Wouldn't that qualify as having sex not for your enjoyment but for the compensation of stopping his incessant whining? Did you ever feel you were obligated to have sex because he was paying for the date? Now answer the question honestly, haven't you already whored yourself?" Marla stopped talking and waited for my reply. Remembering some of my dates in high school and what had happened on them, I thought about her definition of a whore as a woman who has sex for any reason other than her own enjoyment. I thought about it and... Marla took my continued silence as a yes. "Olivia, I don't know you very well but I'd make another bet that our experiences while growing up were pretty much the same. Middle class mores. Pretty and popular in school. I was the Prom Queen by-the-way. We've all whored for something," Marla said. She didn't say it in a gloating voice though, her tone was of someone just stating a fact. "You're tired of his whining so you have sex just to shut the asshole up. Maybe you think it will gain you popularity in high school. You're afraid of not having a date for the big dance so you do what it takes to keep a boyfriend who will invite you to Senior Prom. There's so many reasons other than because you wanted to have sex." Marla reached over and picked up a leather folder off her desk. "What I do is simplify things. I discard all the reasons a woman will have sex except for one. Money." Taking a paper from the folder, she handed it to me. The only thing on the paper was a number. "That is how much a woman earns every time she sees a client I set her up with. If my girl agrees to see a client she's only obligated to spend up to two hours doing what the client wants. The number is doubled if the client wants to include someone else. Tripled for the third person, etc., etc." I started doing the math and was speechless while Marla continued. "The number is also doubled for every hour or part of an hour past two hours of one of my girl's time he wants. So, let's say my client needs a date, arm candy, for a corporate party. The party lasts three hours and at the end he, or she, has a friend who wants to party on into the night for another two hours." I tried to do the math. I doubled the number for the third hour and added it to the first number then added another doubled number for the third person joining the fun. That still left the fourth and fifth hours to double and add... "Would you like to use my calculator," Marla asked with a laugh. "Here, I'll make it simple," she continued and pulling the paper from my hand, she wrote a much larger number down and handed the paper back to me. "That is how much my girl will make for five hours of her time." Holy Shit!!! I was speechless! A five hour party with two guys would go a long way to paying for a semester at any state college. I'm pretty sure that there are times when each of us wonders what we'd do for a large sum of money. I took another look at the number Marla had written down. I was tempted to ask for that calculator so I could calculate the number of days I'd have to work at the temp agency to get to that number. I sighed and handed the sheet of paper back to Marla. I shook my head. "I live at home. Even if I were tempted I could never 'date'," This time I used air quotes. "Go out on dates every night and still work to explain how I was making money? I'd be exhausted in a week." "Who said anything about working for me only at night," Marla asked. She got up and opened the blinds of a window wider. The city skyline was prominent. "Out there today I had six girls working. I still had to turn down clients. I'd have to turn down clients if I had twelve girls working every day. Some of my girls are like you. They live in the suburbs and when they are able, they come to the city and work one or two clients, sometimes even three clients a day if I can work the scheduling right. "Successful men and women who are too busy to take the entire day off. To tired after work for a date. But maybe they can free up an hour during the day. So I get a request for a girl at such-n-such time at either a hotel room or maybe just their office. If a girl is available and can make it to the location in time, I send her. "Some of my girls are proper, suburban married mothers who have kept their figure. Their brats are in school or at their grandparents for the day. Husbands are at work. She's bored so she tells everyone she's going to the city to shop and maybe see a movie. She'll let me know the date and the hours she'll be available in advance and I'll have a client lined up for her. Usually two clients if she has the time. Before she reaches home, money is deposited in a private account she keeps secret from her hubby. Many times? I'll never even see her that day." Marla went quiet and just watched me as I thought over all she'd said. I felt as if an entirely new world was opening up to me. I wasn't a virgin. I was even on the pill already because on some of the dates I went on to satisfy my mom, I also satisfied myself. "So I could continue to come into the city as if I was still working at the temp agency? What if a girl has to be on a train at a certain time? Would you pressure her to stay for another client?" "Never. You are only obligated to stay two hours each time you agree to see a client. All of my clients know this and if, at the end of two hours, you need to leave, that's it. It's over. "I've worked for a Madame who pressured her girls to do, 'just one more'. Pretty soon she had no girls working for her. I don't intend to make that mistake." "Your girls do anything the client wants? There are things, a lot of things really, that I've never done before." "Yes. If you agree to meet a client you are obligated to do anything he, or she, wants to do for at least two hours. On that point there is flexibility on only two conditions. Any act that could result in an arrest. So public sex is out! Any act that could result in bodily harm. So whips are out. Be kind'a hard for one of my suburban housewives to explain welts on her ass to her husband. My clients know these conditions. Clients, especially those who make appointments during the day for when they might have a break in their schedule, usually want just straight sex for some fun and stress reduction. But if I get a message that one of my girls refused any reasonable request though, she doesn't get paid." "I could do just one client a day and make way more money than I'd make temping. Do your girls, umm, find work every day?" "Olivia, you have seen yourself in a mirror haven't you? Looking at you, I estimate you're six foot tall, blonde, beautiful... Your measurements are 34C-23-35?" I nodded. "Olivia, I can guarantee that within a month you'll have every day booked with at least two regular clients. Ten clients a week minimum." I did the math again. That would be close to nine thousand dollars a week! "Doing the math, Olivia?" I nodded and Marla continued. "Don't forget to add in the tips. Your clients will be well off or even wealthy and though you may never, ever, ask for money nor discuss money with them, they often will show their appreciation to my girls for good service in the way of tips that average between two and three hundred dollars. Often more. Tips are kept by the girls. I don't get a cut of tips." I had my mouth open to ask the obvious question when Marla anticipated me and answered before I could ask. "Think about it before you ask why I don't take a cut of the tips. Knowing they get to keep 100% of tips make my girls try very hard to satisfy my clients. Satisfied clients keep coming back for more. I make more money from the repeat business of well satisfied clients than I would from any cut from the tips. Another business lesson I learned from a previous employer." Damn. Even at the low end of tips, with just ten clients a week, two a day, that would be an extra two thousand dollars. That would boost the total to over ten thousand a week! "Tax free?" "Tips, you can declare as much as you want or none. Your salary from me, yes. It's all taxable. No way do I want to cross the IRS. I file W-2 Forms just like any other business. As far as the IRS is concerned I just run another temp agency that also handles booking models for photo shoots. Pay stubs and info for filing taxes are kept here in the office. I never mail them out where husbands and others might see them. It's your responsibility to come get them if you want them." I was silent for a long time as amounts kept going round-and-round my brain. Ten thousand a week... Forty thousand a fucking month!!! Even with days off for holidays it would easily be over four hundred and fifty thousand in a year! Lots and lots of numbers followed by many zeros. Marla finally broke me out of my daze and led me to the door. Handing me her business card again she told me to think about her offer. "No pressure, but if you have any questions you can return here. If you decide you'd like to try working for me, come on back and I'll tell you the rules I have and then send you out to meet your first client." Hailing a taxi, I phoned Mom to tell her I'd missed my regular train and would be a little late. At the dinner table, I tried hard to act as if this had just been a normal day where nothing out of the ordinary had happened. Pleading a stressful day, I brushed my teeth and put on one of the many Hello Kitty t-shirts I had and wore to sleep in before going to bed early. Lying awake in the dark while thinking about what I could do with lots and lots of money...
*************************** I thought about Marla's offer for almost two weeks before calling her. After her assuring me that she remembered who I was I asked if the offer was still open. "It certainly is, Olivia." "And, ah, I'd be able to find work every day?" Marla laughed and answered, "For someone with your looks and body? I can find you work seven days a week if that's what you want. Is it?" "No! I mean, I wouldn't be able to explain my trips into the city on the weekends." "Well, as I said before, with just a little luck as far as scheduling goes, I'm certain you can have two jobs a day very soon if you want that much money. "But, that's enough over the phone. Never can be sure who might be listening in. If you're serious about wanting to work, then be in my office tomorrow at 9am. We can talk details then," Marla said and disconnected. The next morning I left for work at my usual time. I called the temp agency from the train and told them I was sick and wouldn't be in today. I sat in a coffee house drinking decaf trying to calm my nerves until it was time. In her office Marla wasted no time in coming to the point. "First rule, you never, ever!, mention money to any of my clients. I handle all of that. Second rule, you stay for the full two hours if the client wishes. Many of the daytime clients won't have two hours to spare. If they do, you stay. If they ask, it's entirely up to you if you want to stay longer than two hours. It's more money if you stay but it's your decision. Third rule, you do whatever the client wishes as long as there is no threat of arrest or bodily harm. No public sex where you can get arrested and if a guy gets too physical and you feel unsafe, do whatever it takes to get away. We can discuss it later when you are safe! The important thing is to get somewhere you feel safe and talk later. All of my clients know these rules, too." "Does that happen often," I asked hesitantly. I didn't want to get beaten up. "Never for the girls who work days and very rarely for ladies who have a weekend or a night they'd like a job. I try to weed out the wacko's and my clients during the day just want sex. To relieve stress or build their self-esteem or just to put a smile on their face... Who knows? "My fourth rule is for your protection, also. Never give a client your real name or phone number. I handle all the scheduling here. No reason for them to call you. Absolutely no reason for some idiot who's decided he can't live without you to phone 24/7 or suddenly show up at your house. I doubt your parents would understand. Within a few minutes my new name was decided upon and Marla said, "Ok. I'll make a phone call and you can see your first client this afternoon." "Today?" "Why not," Marla answered. "I'd rather know if you're serious about working for me now rather than later, I don't want to waste my time on someone who isn't certain." Marla had a point and taking a big breath, I nodded and said, "Call." Marla called and talked to someone for a few minutes and then hung up. I had my first appointment with a client scheduled for that same afternoon. Marla made me memorize the client's name and address and then added, "If you chicken out, which has happened before, no hard feelings, just never come to me again. Viv, you're intelligent and you have the face and figure to make a lot of money." Marla looked at her watch and concluded, "You have three hours and fifteen minutes to decide if you have the courage to follow through with what it takes to get that money!" I was unsure I had the courage. Very, very unsure. But, three hours and fifteen minutes later I was in a stranger's office as he expressed his delight, "Damn, Marla said she was sending someone who was perfect. Now I believe her. You are everything I hoped for, Viv. "I don't have much time. I wasn't expecting Marla's call back saying she'd found a girl. Get undressed. Get undressed," he commanded me as he took off his coat and tie." When he unbuttoned his shirt and tossed it onto a chair, I unbuttoned my blouse and tossed it. When his pants hit the floor so, too, did my skirt. Underwear and panties dropped at the same time. I still had my bra on but he reached around behind me to unhook it. In less than a minute we were both naked and he had my boobs in his hands, telling me how perfect they were. Leading me to a short couch against a wall, he laid me down and wasted no time mounting me. I was dry and his eager thrusts pulled and stretched me enough to cause me to grimace and softly cry out. It didn't take long before his thrusting between my legs caused my vagina to moisten. Moaning at how tight I was, soon he was fucking me hard. Hard enough to push my head to the edge of his couch before he stiffened and pushed deep with short, hard jabs as he came deep.

Raising my head I looked down to watch as his cock still moved inside me. It didn't seem possible that in so short a time I'd gone from being a 'good girl' to becoming a whore. If there was any doubt in my mind, my client soon dispelled them. Pulling his cock out and tossing me my panties. Telling me to put them on quickly. "I don't want you dripping cum on my couch and carpet," he said. As soon as I'd done what I'd been told he came to stand beside the couch where I'd raised up to sit on the edge. There was no uncertainty of what he wanted. Remebering I was to do anything a client wanted, I got on my knees beside the couch and opened my mouth to take him. Cleaning his still hard cock of our sex was a first for me. The taste wasn't what I'd expected. Not as bad as I'd feared when I'd refused to do the same with boyfriends from my past.

After getting dressed as quickly as we'd undressed, he pulled out his wallet and counted out bills then, with a shrug of his shoulders, he counted out more and pressed them into my hand with further instructions. "Get better clothes before you come back. Something that will say you belong here if a partner sees you. You look like a teenager who wandered in to use the bathroom. And get a Brazilian Wax. I don't like hairy pussies. Reminds me of my wife. Next appointment I hope I won't be so pressed for time so I can really enjoy you for longer. But for now, go... go... go..., I have another meeting to get to." On the elevator ride to the lobby I was sure people would look at me differently. But they didn't. I was sure I wasn't the only one to smell the sex that was wetting the crotch of my panties. But no one seemed to. I may have been new at being a whore but I wasn't new to going home after sex. Mom and Dad never suspected how many times I'd come home from a date with cum wetting my pussy and the crotch of my panties. I used the lessons I'd learned then to good effect now after getting directions to a ladies room from a guard in the lobby. Standing in a stall I used tissue to wipe the smeared cum from between my legs.
deleted
While I was the only one in the bathroom, I rinsed the thick cum from the crotch of my panties. Twirling them quickly to spin as much water as I could out of the fabric, I stopped from putting them on and put them in my purse instead. An emergency tampon from my purse to keep more cum from leaking. One last swipe of my pussy lips with damp tissues and I left the building. Bright sunlight and a warm breeze cleared my head as I began looking for a taxi to flag down. This time when I entered Marla's office she came from around her desk to give me a hug. "The client called and said he was very pleased with you." "I'm not sure why? It all happened so fast I don't see how he could have enjoyed it." "One minute or two hours, it all pays the same," Marla replied with a shrug as she leaned against the edge of her desk. "He did say he wanted you to dress more like a professional before next time. Should I schedule you for a next time? Wait, wait, before you answer, here," Marla said as picked up an envelope from her desk and handed it to me. "You haven't given me an account I can deposit your pay in so that's it in cash this time. Now, tell me, do you want there to be a next time?" I opened the envelope and looked at the money, then mentally added it to the tip I'd counted out while in the taxi coming here. It was more money than I'd ever had in my hands at one time. It far exceeded my weekly paycheck from the temp agency. All for undressing and spreading my legs for ten minutes. "Hell, yes, I want there to be a next time!" After making plans to meet again in the morning, I left Marla's office and wandered the city streets. I had a couple of hours to kill before my train. I spent them window shopping. I would have bought a couple of the beautiful dresses on display but I had no way to explain to my mom how I'd earned the kind'a money to buy them in so short a time. I would have also gotten a very disapproving glare and stern words about saving my money for college. I'd only turned eighteen a couple of weeks before graduation. Legally I'm an adult and can do what I want, I pouted while looking at one dress I'd kill for! Yea, well, two months of being a legal adult didn't wipe out eighteen years of being my mom's daughter. I sighed one last time in longing over the dress then called the agency and told them I quit on the walk to the train. I may not be able to buy the dress I wanted but I could work at the job I wanted...

2020.09.18 07:18 cakepawp Do I leave a job I’ve had for 10 days for a better offer?

I have a new job that I just started last week. It’s a development job for someone whose work I truly respect. This was someone I admired as a well-known subject matter expert, and I jumped at the opportunity to work for her when she shared online that she was hiring for her small company, which she owns. It was sold to me as a chill, flexible remote agency job, but so far it hasn’t been very chill. My co-workers are chill as people, but I’ve been working late every night to meet deadlines, and several of my co-workers seem to have issues with estimating how long a task will take and fending off scope creep. Consequently, I’m putting extra hours in to get all my work done and meet the dates for clients while still “pair coding” (which is a requirement) with my assigned partner, who lives in a time zone three hours behind me and joked the other day that he was glad they hired me, because he has so much work that he didn’t sleep the night before. On top of this, the salary is very modest at $75,000, and the benefits are terrible: $250 monthly health insurance reimbursement (and I live in a market where decent insurance is $700 a month), only 10 days of PTO, and only 6 weeks maternity leave. Still, I truly respect my new employer and the thought of burning that bridge gives me massive anxiety.
However, 8 months ago, pre-COVID, I was in talks with a consulting firm to come on board. This is a unique consulting firm in that no unwanted travel is required, and I would be working with high profile clients. The starting salary is $130,000 and the benefits are stellar. I was very excited by the idea and wanted to work there very badly. Things were going really well, and I was totally set to make the leap, but then the pandemic started and they entered a hiring freeze. I continued to have bi-weekly calls with the recruiter and various other employees, and, every time I had a call, the story was that they all loved me and wanted me, but couldn’t bring me on yet. In July I had a call with the recruiter, and she told me that they were not going to resume hiring until 2021, and, even then, I would have to wait for a project they needed me on before I could start. I had been unhappy at my last job for almost two years by then and had already waited 7 months for the possibility of the consulting firm hiring me, so, with the news that there was really no forecast for when the job might come back onto the table, I decided to cut my losses and start looking elsewhere. A few days later, I saw that my new boss was hiring. I applied, had four rounds of interviews and then received an offer for my new job at the end of August.
Yesterday I got an email from the recruiter at the consulting firm asking to have a quick chat, and I agreed. She told me that a project has come up and they are looking to bring me on in October. I asked her if I could have more time, and she told me that they can keep me in the queue and hire me in the future, but she could not make any guesses as to when another opening for me would come up (could be a few months, could be much longer). As soon as I hung up with her I burst into tears because this was the worst case scenario I had not even entertained for how improbable it seemed.
What do I do? Is there a way to leave my new job without burning that bridge? I feel like I would be a dirtbag who wasted everyone’s time, and on top of that I’m sure they rejected other candidates who were very qualified. Still, I have debt and want to start a family soon, so I would have to be insane to not think about going somewhere where I could make that kind of money and also get 5 months of maternity leave. It’s not a minuscule salary difference; we’re talking almost double. I know consulting is also hard work, but my feeling is that if I’m going to work hard anyway, I might as well work hard and get paid accordingly.
Do I risk staying in the queue for the consulting firm so that I can put in an “appropriate” amount of time at my new job? I feel like I have been waiting my entire adult life to have a lucky break opportunity like this that seems like it only happens for other people, and this might be my shot. I just really don’t want my new team to hate me.
Any perspective is appreciated.

Multi-domain orgs and individuals raise concerns about Aarogya Setu #SaveOurPrivacy

https://preview.redd.it/07pvg9ugaun51.png?width=1024&format=png&auto=webp&s=84c5303a0e4a1d6bdd7249b21bf3fb8dbd3c43cd

Tl;dr

8 organizations and 145 individuals have written to MoHFW, MeitY and the IT Standing Committee raising serious technical, legal, ethical and implementation concerns regarding Aarogya Setu and other apps introduced during the COVID-19 pandemic. This joint statement was drafted by the Forum for Medical Ethics Society, Jan Swasthya Abhiyan, All India People’s Science Network and Internet Freedom Foundation based on multi-domain experience and it situates COVID-19 apps like Aarogya Setu within the public health system in India. The joint statement also presents a clear set of 16 demands to safeguard sensitive personal data of citizens and prevent exclusion.

Background

The Aarogya Setu mobile app was introduced by the government as a proximity exposure notification app on 02 April 2020 and it has been mired in controversy since its release. Concerns have been raised about commercial or law enforcement use of sensitive personal data collected by the app by legal commentators who have cautioned against deployment of such technologies in the absence of a data protection law in India. Public health experts have also explained why such technologies cannot replace on the ground contract tracing by healthcare workers and questioned the government's failure to explain why information available in existing government databases is insufficient. Finally, technologists have warned that Aarogya Setu adopts weak anonymization practices which make its users susceptible to re-identification and criticized the lack of transparency surrounding the app's code and algorithms.

Joint statement by multi-domain civil society groups

This joint statement was drafted by the Forum for Medical Ethics Society, Jan Swasthya Abhiyan, All India People’s Science Network and Internet Freedom Foundation and it has been endorsed by 8 organizations and 145 individuals. The other four endorsee organizations are Janchetna Sansthan, Lok Manch, Rethink Aadhaar Campaign India and the Right To Food Campaign. A full list of endorsees can be found in the joint statement linked at the bottom of this post.
Yesterday i.e. 17 September 2020, we sent the joint statement to the Ministry of Health & Family Welfare, Ministry of Electronics & Information Technology and the Parliamentary Standing Committee on Information Technology. The statement presents a clear set of 16 demands to safeguard sensitive personal data of citizens and prevent exclusion in access to healthcare and other essential facilities which are listed below.
I. For proportionality
  1. There is a constitutional obligation to adopt the least restrictive/intrusive measure to achieve the stated purpose. These thresholds can be benchmarked against known technological best practices and models, and the kinds of interventions adopted by other constitutional democracies. The design of interventions must also ensure that they do not disproportionately impact people from certain backgrounds, identities, and regions.
  2. A full release of specifications including cryptography, anonymization specifications, Application Programming Interface (API) specifications, and Bluetooth specifications.
  3. Release of the source code for the current version of the AS App, given the fact that the released code does not match with the one in use, and release of the server-side code.
  4. Development of a comprehensive privacy impact assessment, articulating accompanying risks associated with large scale roll-out of the App.
  5. Commitment (i.e. sunset clauses that are clearly present in primary legislation) to permanently destroy the data and systems being built via AS App at the end of the COVID-19 pandemic.
  6. The AS App must not in any way be made mandatory by government or private actors;
  7. Among other things, the focus must be on assuring the public that these are temporary interventions which will not devolve into permanent surveillance and monitoring systems.
II. For legality
  1. Suitable legislation is required aim to hold the Union and State governments and private actors accountable for leakage or any inappropriate use of App data during epidemics and communicable disease outbreaks.
  2. Under this legislative framework, governments may only access patient data through hospital records, and must preserve patient anonymity.
  3. These frameworks should be solely under the control of public health institutions.
III. For necessity
  1. The government must establish contextual necessity of the new technological interventions like the AS App which monitors people’s movements since this is already being done by other actors (like telecom service providers).;
  2. Grounds for treating the existing government databases, such as those maintained by ICMR and other existing surveillance mechanisms and hospital records as inadequate for the current purposes of responding to the pandemic
  3. The expected advantage of interventions for collection of health and related information is collected, the actual technical effectiveness of the interventions itself, and a detailed cost-benefit/privacy impact analysis to evaluate risks before rolling out such Apps
  4. Necessity as a dynamic construct, and that it is embedded through the life cycle of the AS programme. Within it there is a need for continual review of the programme as regards principles of transparency and accountability.
IV. Oversight Structures and Processes
  1. The required legislation must create independent institutions for oversight separated from the political executive.
  2. Towards this end, the agencies/institutions concerned should publish periodic reports informing the public if, and to what extent, the App is augmenting the Government’s response in treating and containing the spread of Covid-19. Based on such feedback loops, these institutions should be empowered to make decisions for course correction or even discontinuation of the programme itself, and the permanent destruction of the systems created.

2020.09.18 06:55 OatBot Just received a letter from a debt collector for a debt I knew nothing about (though it is kind of valid...) Please help!

Up until March of this year I was renting a house from an older gentleman and paying for all utilities in my name. In March, I received my final bill for Waste Management (trash collection service), which I paid and then over the phone requested my service be shut off, I didn't receive a printed or emailed confirmation of this. Same month I then signed a lease at a new property and moved in. The leasing company now holds the Waste Management account and I pay for the trash collection as part of my monthly rent, no longer dealing directly with WM.
Here's my biggest fuckup, I've always read that address forwarding is temporary and the best thing to do is just change your address with all of accounts that matter (Bank, cell phone, etc...). I was getting a ton of junk mail at the old address anyways so I didn't bother; plus my landlord said that any mail going there he'd get it to me.
Fast forward to tonight, when he says he has a big stack of mail for me that he didn't call me about, citing covid as an excuse. In it, is a letter from a collection agency trying to collect the $50 Waste Management has been trying to collect from me since April, after I moved out and after new tenants had already moved in. It's dated 7 days ago.
Now the dilemma, I only have proof of my last bill paid and when my new lease was signed, so proof that I was no longer at that residence when they tried to bill. I feel like negotiating that fact with Waste Management would work, but I really don't think a debt collector will care or if that's a valid dispute. My fiance and I are actually looking to purchase a house before our new lease runs out and I don't want anything fucking my credit up as we're going to mainly be relying on my scores. Another kick in the nuts is I just did my free annual credit scores 3 days prior to when the letter was dated, so I can't verify if they're reporting it or not; though it's a debt collection agency so I'm sure they are.
My plan is to call them up, telling them I have the proof that my last bill was paid and I had vacated the property and even that I'm willing to pay the $50 they're trying to collect if they'll remove any negative marks off my report. I can try to fight and dispute this but I'm worried that it may take a long time and ruin our chances of buying a house before our lease is up. Any advice on how I should proceed?

2020.09.18 03:38 day_cream Last week, I (27F) broke up with my partner (38M) of 3+ yrs. I ended things telling him he was abusive, but in the aftermath I’m trying to understand if he actually was. His behaviours are a bit different than other stories I’ve read & he was so adamant in convincing me I’m wrong.

I never imagined breaking up with my partner, who I truly believed was the love of my life. We talked about marriage and long term plans, and as dysfunctional as things got, I don’t think either of us actually thought we would break up.
I’m having the typical emotions of wondering if I made a huge mistake, wondering if things could be fixed or if he could change, and I feel a big part of being able to move on is being able to establish whether or not he even was abusive. His denial and inability to understand that he’s an abuser is messing with me, and I want to make sure I didn’t jump to any conclusions, misunderstand, or otherwise label him unfairly. Any advice and insight is seriously appreciated!!
Explaining the entire story would be way too long, so I’ll just break it down into general categories of what he was doing. I also want to say that I definitely have regrets for the ways I acted at times during our relationship, (as a result of staying in it when I was deeply anxious and didn’t feel like I could trust him). I’ve been overbearing, paranoid and irritable, my sex drive has dropped, and I’ve been a lot less affectionate, and all of these things have really affected him.
  1. He has a very high sex drive, and right from the beginning, I felt that the expectation was to have sex every single time we hung out. At the beginning, I was pretty much down to have sex anytime he wanted to anyways. But about a month in I got a UTI, and while he expressed concern, helped me find a walk-in clinic, etc he also “politely” expressed disappointment when I said we may need to take a break from sex for a week or so. As time went on, and we continued having sex every single time we hung out, I started to feel like he would be shocked if I ever said no, and I didn’t feel that was healthy. On the *once in awhile* time that I did say no because I wasn’t feeling well, was way too tired, etc, he was visibly upset, sad, rejected. This created a subtle pressure, and when I eventually spoke to him about it, he admitted that he hadn’t handled his feelings of rejection well. Moving forward he didn’t act sad anymore, and sometimes even said things like “we don’t have to tonight”, but I still knew how disappointed he’d be inside if I said no. My sex drive started to really drop as a result of feeling like I didn’t really have a choice, but I continued mainly having sex every single time we saw each other. Near the end I would usually want to wait until the end of the night to do it, and he expressed a lot of disappointment and upset that I was always putting it off. He still got it nearly every time, but didn’t like that there was that much of a delay. On the odd time if I told him before he came over that I didn’t want to have sex that day, he would say he’d have to be late because he *had* to masturbate first. If I got upset about this, since he was already chronically late for every hang out and was supposed to be working out, he'd say that it's his body and he should masturbate when he wants without me shaming him. Other times, if we weren't going to have sex, he would agree to still come over but that he would later go home instead of sleeping over as planned so that he could masturbate (wanted privacy I guess?). A couple times he cancelled the hang out all together.
  2. Throughout the relationship I did not feel like I could trust him. In the first few months we had a pretty major red flag where he broke my trust more than once with a dating app. When I initially had asked him to delete it, he said he would and didn’t, so I was upset. (5 months in and this was the first time I’d ever gotten upset at him). I believe he gaslighted by saying that he’d dealt with enough bullshit from an abusive, controlling ex many years prior, and that he wasn’t going to tolerate it anymore. He told me he would absolutely delete the app because it “was a non-issue”, but angrily said not to bring it up and cause drama again. I felt so bad and completely believed him. Well, a month later while he was showing me something, I saw that he still had it. I made him delete it on the spot, and when he opened it he tilted it away from me so I couldn’t see the messages. He justified this as again, his abusive ex would’ve been mad at messages from *before they met*, so he was scared I would too because we “have some similarities”. I later found out that he *had* gone on a date early on while we were together, on a night when he had told me he was going to be early. He swears it was friendly/nothing happened, but I only found out by chance and he vehemently denied it for days until finally admitting. We went to couples counselling and then I went to aggressive anxiety/ocd counselling to try to get a handle on the obsessive thoughts I was having about whether or not he was cheating on me. We moved past it, but it set the stage early on, and I never felt like I could actually trust him. He told me his phone password and said I could look anytime, and I did once in awhile, but things always seemed to happen here and there where I felt like he was uncomfortable when I asked to use it, sometimes didn’t want to leave me around it alone if he went to another level of the house, etc. He always assured me that there was absolutely no issue and I was just being anxious/obsessing. On the day we broke up, he let me use his phone to look something up, and there was a bunch of search history for escorts, dating apps, “alternatives to tinder”, etc etc etc.
In his notes folder, he had saved a couple profiles of sex workers. He had told me a few days before when I was begging him for hours to just come clean about everything that he had quickly googled escorts, but would have never followed through with it. He explained he was so deeply unhappy by the lack of affection and lack of desire he felt, plus all the fighting, that it was a rash search but would have never acted on it. His extensive search history combined with actually saving profiles of sex workers suggested at least a bit more intention than he let on, but he defended himself by saying he had even “admitted” it before.
  1. Near the end, I caught him in a few lies, from him lying about the price of a comic he bought, to finding out he had debt he’d never told me about. One of the things that made me uneasy all throughout the relationship was that he wouldn’t answer the phone when we were together. I reassured myself that it wasn’t another girl because they were normally 1-800 numbers. I even asked him if he had any outstanding debts, etc. Well, at the end I discovered about 30 phone numbers from the same collection agency that have been trying to reach him for literal years. According to him just over an old cable bill. He justified his lying by saying that while he realizes it was a mistake, they were mainly white lies that he told to avoid conflict because he didn’t think I would be understanding that “sometimes people make mistakes”.
  2. Our biggest arguments/fights were usually conversations gone wrong, initiated by me, and either about my issues trusting him, or about his chronic lateness or extremely messy (nearly hoarder’s level) apartment (both part of adhd which he wasn’t dealing with properly despite countless promises and excuses).
During conversations even when I was justifiably upset, I found he would tone police me (and then become irate if I said that word), abruptly jump up and storm out, blame shift, not listen/understand my point so I would have to repeat it over and over and then he would say things were going in circles, he was getting a migraine, that I dominate conversations, that I had 30 seconds to wrap up or he was hanging up, etc.
Near the end I was having massive panic attacks during fights (crying hysterically, hyperventilating etc), and he’d say “something is wrong with you, I’m really worried about you”.
I know this sounds bad but when we weren’t arguing (arguments I started!) he was a kind, helpful, considerate, extremely sensitive and thoughtful guy. I honestly considered him a rarity among men because of his sensitivity and empathy, and how in tune with his feelings he seemed to be. He did agree to seek individual therapy for himself, but would not properly admit to being an abuser, which is what ended our relationship. His absolute refusal to acknowledge being an abuser, despite wanting to be with my very much and knowing that refusing would cause us to break up, is really messing with me. I’m struggling to know whether or not he was was abusive. I’ve been reading books and listening to podcasts about emotional abuse, but I’m confused because he doesn’t do many of the behaviours like verbal abuse, picking on me, making me feel bad about myself, controlling me, etc. I didn’t feel I could trust him or really say no to sex whenever I felt like it, and he didn’t act well during arguments. But asides from those things, he was was wonderful. He never instigated any arguments himself, *ever*. He also does seem to possess high levels of empathy in the sense of being super supportive and helpful, caring deeply about animals, not even being able to stand suffering or sadness in movies.
If anyone has any insight into this specific situation I would be so grateful. I just can’t seem to figure him out. Thanks so much in advance <3

(5 months in and this was the first time I’d ever gotten upset at him). I believe he gaslighted by saying that he’d dealt with enough bullshit from an abusive, controlling ex many years prior, and that he wasn’t going to tolerate it anymore. He told me he would absolutely delete the app because it “was a non-issue”, but angrily said not to bring it up and cause drama again. I felt so bad and completely believed him. Well, a month later while he was showing me something, I saw that he still had it. I made him delete it on the spot, and when he opened it he tilted it away from me so I couldn’t see the messages. He justified this as again, his abusive ex would’ve been mad at messages from *before they met*, so he was scared I would too because we “have some similarities”. I later found out that he *had* gone on a date early on while we were together, on a night when he had told me he was going to be early. He swears it was friendly/nothing happened, but I only found out by chance and he vehemently denied it for days until finally admitting. We went to couples counselling and then I went to aggressive anxiety/ocd counselling to try to get a handle on the obsessive thoughts I was having about whether or not he was cheating on me. We moved past it, but it set the stage early on, and I never felt like I could actually trust him. He told me his phone password and said I could look anytime, and I did once in awhile, but things always seemed to happen here and there where I felt like he was uncomfortable when I asked to use it, sometimes didn’t want to leave me around it alone if he went to another level of the house, etc. He always assured me that there was absolutely no issue and I was just being anxious/obsessing. On the day we broke up, he let me use his phone to look something up, and there was a bunch of search history for escorts, dating apps, “alternatives to tinder”, etc etc etc.
In his notes folder, he had saved a couple profiles of sex workers. He had told me a few days before when I was begging him for hours to just come clean about everything that he had quickly googled escorts, but would have never followed through with it. He explained he was so deeply unhappy by the lack of affection and lack of desire he felt, plus all the fighting, that it was a rash search but would have never acted on it. His extensive search history combined with actually saving profiles of sex workers suggested at least a bit more intention than he let on, but he defended himself by saying he had even “admitted” it before.

  1. Near the end, I caught him in a few lies, from him lying about the price of a comic he bought, to finding out he had debt he’d never told me about. One of the things that made me uneasy all throughout the relationship was that he wouldn’t answer the phone when we were together. I reassured myself that it wasn’t another girl because they were normally 1-800 numbers. I even asked him if he had any outstanding debts, etc. Well, at the end I discovered about 30 phone numbers from the same collection agency that have been trying to reach him for literal years. According to him just over an old cable bill. He justified his lying by saying that while he realizes it was a mistake, they were mainly white lies that he told to avoid conflict because he didn’t think I would be understanding that “sometimes people make mistakes”.

  1. Our biggest arguments/fights were usually conversations gone wrong, initiated by me, and either about my issues trusting him, or about his chronic lateness or extremely messy (nearly hoarder’s level) apartment (both part of adhd which he wasn’t dealing with properly despite countless promises and excuses).
During conversations even when I was justifiably upset, I found he would tone police me (and then become irate if I said that word), abruptly jump up and storm out, blame shift, not listen/understand my point so I would have to repeat it over and over and then he would say things were going in circles, he was getting a migraine, that I dominate conversations, that I had 30 seconds to wrap up or he was hanging up, etc.
Near the end I was having massive panic attacks during fights (crying hysterically, hyperventilating etc), and he’d say “something is wrong with you, I’m really worried about you”.

I know this sounds bad but when we weren’t arguing (arguments I started!) he was a kind, helpful, considerate, extremely sensitive and thoughtful guy. I honestly considered him a rarity among men because of his sensitivity and empathy, and how in tune with his feelings he seemed to be. He did agree to seek individual therapy for himself, but would not properly admit to being an abuser, which is what ended our relationship. His absolute refusal to acknowledge being an abuser, despite wanting to be with my very much and knowing that refusing would cause us to break up, is really messing with me. I’m struggling to know whether or not he was was abusive. I’ve been reading books and listening to podcasts about emotional abuse, but I’m confused because he doesn’t do many of the behaviours like verbal abuse, picking on me, making me feel bad about myself, controlling me, etc. I didn’t feel I could trust him or really say no to sex whenever I felt like it, and he didn’t act well during arguments. But asides from those things, he was was wonderful. He never instigated any arguments himself, *ever*. He also does seem to possess high levels of empathy in the sense of being super supportive and helpful, caring deeply about animals, not even being able to stand suffering or sadness in movies.

If anyone has any insight into this specific situation I would be so grateful. I just can’t seem to figure him out. Thanks so much in advance <3

The last game of President Trump: Breaking the coup attempt of the Democratic Party and the enemy of the country
The closer you get to the election day (November 3), you can feel the heat from all sides surrounded the ballot box, from the Democratic Party's push to vote by mail to the application of the military to the election. or not? It can be said that President Trump is facing a lot of pitfalls of the righteous "enemy" in the heart of the country.
But as a "warrior" of difficult space, it can be said that the current decisions and statements of President Trump have pushed "the opponent" into the situation ... do not know where to go. 2020: The Democratic Party's "n" coup attempt
In February 2020, after many failed "coups" since Trump entered the White House (January 2017), Democrats and other underground State forces plotted to "oust" President Trump. out of the White House with a "farce" or "farce", and it ultimately failed miserably.
When the "tricks" are applied based on both "subjective and objective" factors such as the Wuhan virus, shutting down the economy, destroying riot, abolishing the police ... counterproductive, more precise. is a huge failure again, now the Democratic "rulers" are openly talking about staging a "coup".
Starting with statements from the US Department of Defense to quietly guide public opinion that the military will not obey the orders of the President. All of the above statements are from former generals - most of them are those who served under former President Barack Obama, and helped "spread" by Big Media to the American public. In July 2018, CNN once "revealed" that a series of generals in the Trump administration were disobeying his requests. And CNN, New York Times ... try to "illustrate" so that the American people believe that the President of the United States cannot afford to become the most powerful man in the world. (first)
CNN opened up, Defense Secretary James Mattis - then among those "disobedient" top officials - is said to have made disparaging comments on President Trump on matters related to Syria and North Korea, with the comments "Mr. Trump understands these issues at the level of an elementary school student".
US Joint Chiefs of Staff Vice Chairman John Hyten, who is responsible for America's top nuclear command, said he opposes President Trump's order on a nuclear strike if that is " illegal". As for CNBC, incumbent Defense Secretary Mark Esper opposes the introduction of the Resurrection Act - allowing President Trump to deploy US troops in active service - in response to civil unrest caused by Antifa, Black Lives Matter caused in major cities across the US in May 2020. (2) As the riots intensified by domestic terrorist groups, with the "help" of the Democratic governors run earlier in June, Defense Secretary Mark Esper declared publicly announced in the media that the President should not invoke the Resurrection Act.
The left-wing media massively released this information, simultaneously interpreting and dissecting the Secretary of Defense's message: “Mr. President, don't tell us to do it, because we won't, And he knows what will happen after that.
All these "tricks" of the left-wing media have "breathed relay" for candidate Joe Biden to confidently assert to Fox News that the military will "escort [Trump] from the White House with an official dispatch." great ”if the president refuses to leave office. And yet, former Vice President Al Gore (under the Bill Clinton administration) also publicly agreed with this view of Joe Biden. (3)
You may think that this is just a "joking" comment of a "patient" with dementia, and of a "hideout" who always offers "renaissance" campaign policies to America. from inside the basement of the house he is in.
But Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup", even for Mr. Joe Biden "doze" to say innocuous statements as above. Democrats are not accidentally "innocent" as you think. They have a methodical strategy to "brainwash" the American people step by step before "coup". (Getty)
It is no coincidence that the Washington Post recently (September 3) published an article titled: "What's the worst that could happen ..." The article publicly outlined a scenario, in which "Trump won," the Democrats desperate and vice versa. (4)
They purposely leaked a summer story about a meeting of about 100 Democrats who were former "anti-Trump" Republicans and other underground powers. (following the devilish trend of billionaire George Soros) together "play the lottery" - outlined different options and results in the 2020 election.
The end result is an absolute victory of the current President Trump. However, Bill Clinton's former White House Chief of Staff John Podesta (who plays Joe Biden) refused to give in, pressuring states that Trump had won the Democratic nomination for the main vote. formula of the Electoral College, and is confident that the military will take care of the rest. (5) This
deliberately "leaked" report shows that, if there is "dispute" from the post-election tally, then "technocratic solutions, courts and dependence on elites comply by standards is not the answer ”. Which it promises, what will happen after the November elections will be "a street fight, not a war of riot.
The underground powers and Democrats have outlined a bold plan to topple President Trump if he is re-elected. (Getty)
That means Big Media has "confirmed" to the American public that the possibility of post-election rioting (if President Trump is re-elected) will occur. Add two other baselines that can't be ignored.
The first data is that on August 11, Representatives Elissa Slotkin (Michigan) and Mikie Sherrill (New Jersey) wrote an open letter to General Mark Milley, Chairman of the Joint Chiefs of Staff. In the letter, two Democrats urged General Mark Milley to deploy the 82nd Airborne Division to "escort" President Trump out of the Oval Office at 12:01 p.m. on January 20, 2021 for Joe Biden to "continue. The White House. (6)
The letter is the most obvious answer to the Democratic conspiracy right after candidate Joe Biden offered his "idea": If President Trump loses in the 2020 election (and if he refuses to give in ), then the Democrats may have to "ask" the military to escort him out of the White House.
The second data is that just about a month later, Hillary Clinton publicly declared that Joe Biden should not give in to the election "under any circumstances". (7) This does not sound like the "rhetoric" of a great politician, of a major political party.
All the above facts show that the Democrats are once again planning to "coup" President Donald Trump even if he wins over Joe Biden in the 2020 election.
Why Big Media and the Citizen Party Owner openly conspired "coup"?
The answer is simple, because the Deep State forces know that, for this coup "conspiracy" to succeed, it must not seem like a conspiracy. And at all times, wherever they are, they need to instill in the minds of the American people and the world public that, illegally removing President Trump from his term is partly due to the "fault" of yourself: Fascist dictator, entrenched power etc and so forth
They "brainwash" the American people not to mind Joe Biden's "extravagant" statement, that President Trump will refuse to leave the White House when he believed he had won legally. But what they want to emphasize through the "firm" statement of Hillary Clinton that: Joe Biden should not lose under any circumstances.
The focus of the Democratic Party's coup "conspiracy" is by all means to exaggerate the risk of pandemic Wuhan virus, with the help of CDC, Big Tech, Big Media, Big Pharma to stop the people. The United States voted directly, which in turn led to voting by mail. This is a form to create conditions for Democrats to cheat votes and "buy time" to count votes.
The Deep State powers know that in order for this coup "plot" to succeed, it must not act like a conspiracy.
In early September, the Hawkfish analysis firm (backed Joe Biden) announced that there was a chance that President Trump would win a landslide match on election night (November 3), but could lose. after the Democrats tally their mail ballots.
Hawkfish's director, Josh Mendelsohn, said a possible scenario when President Trump holds a 408-130 electoral ballot on election night, but has only 15% of the vote. by mail is checked. But after all the votes were counted, the company predicted Joe Biden "eventually won a big, 334-204 win."
Mr. Mendelsohn said: “When every legitimate vote is checked and we reach the last day, which is the day after Election Day, reality shows what happened on the exact election night. as such. Looks like Donald Trump took the lead, and he basically won't win when every vote counts. "
Meanwhile, Facebook CEO Mark Zuckerberg also said that Americans have to get used to thinking that the election results may take "weeks" to be confirmed after the vote (November 3), and "status "Civil unrest is possible."
Twitter announced that they will delete any tweet declaring victory before the election results are confirmed. Meaning Twitter indirectly confirmed, the platform would prevent President Trump's supporters from challenging the legitimacy of any delay in announcing winners.
The worst case scenario will result in some states having ambiguous votes. Then a fierce dispute will happen to the point where no one can accurately declare the winner. Of course, then a whole system of Underground State behind "back", will help Democrats declare Joe Biden final victory.
America "runs out" if Joe Biden and Democrats win.
As President Trump once warned, if Joe Biden wins, the Chinese Communist Party (CCP) will take over America. At the same time, many observers also found that America, under the leadership of Joe Biden, would follow a socialist model.
This should come as no surprise, given that Joe Biden has a close "history", with the CCP leaders, openly downplaying the threat from China as well as his "demographic" campaigning policies. always attaching special importance to high taxes, supporting abortion, similar to the socialist democratic model.
The dangerous thing is, if Joe Biden and the Democrats somehow "take over" the White House in this 2020 election, they will change the US Constitution and the Bill of Rights, by canceling the Second Amendment. 2 (allowing Americans the right to own guns), opening up the border so that millions of illegal immigrants enter the United States, causing job "bleeding" and chaos.
At the same time, Democrats will keep all political dissidents - true Americans - silent. Under the mighty power of the Underground State, opposition Americans, patriotic Americans, and traditional rightists will be tightly censored.
Believers, Christians will be intimidated, beaten, and even executed by domestic terrorist groups such as Antifa, Black Lives Matter, and even executed, whose law (of the Democratic Party) will protect them in a favorable way. ethnic minorities. All Christian speeches will be "criminalized", and the Bible will be outlawed.
America is embraced by Marxist left-wing ideology. The riots over the past three months in the United States have demonstrated an ever darker outlook after the election, and show that the extreme left is a frantic, authoritarian, anti-American "sect."
The radical left "nurtured" and activated by the mainstream media, launched a violent communist revolution against America's values ​​of freedom and democracy.
Big Media, Big Tech has demonstrated dangerous lawlessness by censoring all speeches online, protesting the radical liberal's psychotic delusions. The ultimate purpose of this underworld is: Full power to rule, eliminate police and censor people with opposing views.
In the future, America is no longer a shore of Freedom, but becomes a country like the country the CCP is running: Disrespecting the law and upholding the "law of the forest". Every American election from now on will be easily manipulated, stolen, cheated, or altered with violence by leftists who hate America, and despise all Americans who love. True water.
President Trump - lonely warrior: "Quick quenching" violence
Of course, all the above actions are prevented by President Donald Trump.
The Politico newspaper reported that on September 10, President Trump threatened to "quell ... very quickly" the riots on election night (November 3), if the Democrats were dissatisfied. Street after his victory. (8)
The remarks were made in an interview with Fox News host Jeanine Pirro, in which President Trump was asked how he would react to riots if he was declared the winner. on November 3. (9)
We will take them down very quickly if they do. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to… "(Getty)
"We will take them down very quickly if they do," replied the President. We have the right to do that. We have the power to do it, if we want to ... Look, it's called rebellion. We just send, and we do it, very easily. I mean, it's very easy. I don't want to do it because there is no reason, but if we have to do so, we will do it and solve the problem within minutes ”.
President Trump appears to be referring to the National Emergency Act - a law dating back to 1807 - that allows the President to deploy troops in the country for enforcement in certain emergencies. In other words, President Trump is declaring that he will deploy his army to end the rebellions.
There have been many analyzes and comments after this statement of President Trump. One of them is that President Trump will introduce the Resurrection Act shortly after the election. This allows the President to invoke the executive powers of the Fourteenth Amendment, in which paragraph 3 states:
“Anyone who is a member of Congress, or an official of the United States, or a member of a state legislature, or an administrative or judicial official of any state has made a declaration. o swear to support the Constitution of the United States but participate in revolts or rebellions against the Constitution or assist or lie in enemies, cannot be a senator or a deputy in Congress, or a representative voters to elect the President and Vice President, or in charge of any civil or military agency of the United States or of a certain state. But Congress can with 2/3 votes of two-thirds of the members of each House to reject the above prohibition. (From vi.wikisource) (10)
The Fourteenth Amendment was approved in 1868, shortly after the Civil War. President Trump could use this Amendment to order the arrest of a series of traitors, while stripping Electoral College votes from states participating in an overt revolt against the United Nations. USA.
That means President Trump has the power to remove the powers of governors, mayors, judges, lawmakers or military leaders who have granted "aid or commissar" to the anti-insurgent / rebellion. back to the United States.
That also means Democrats Gavin Newsom (California), Kate Brown (Oregon), Jay Inslee (Washington) and Andrew Cuomo (New York), and many left-wing mayors like Ted Wheeler (Portland), Lori Lightfoot (Chicago) and Bill de Blasio of (New York City) will be stripped of power.
President Trump will likely declare first that an illegal nationwide rebellion is in progress, and then deploy troops to quell the riots and restore the rule of law.
Extreme violence, and anarchy in Democratic-run states like this one, and likely to get even more intense shortly after the election, will give President Trump a rationale. it was justifiable for him to declare sending troops to these rebellious states.
u The 14th Judgment will allow President Trump to deprive mayors, governors, and MPs of the Democratic Party if riots do break out. (Getty)
This was not an act of "martial law" because President Trump remained at the helm of the country, and America was not run by a military general. Rather, the military is being deployed as a tool of the President to crack down on illegal rebellions.
Radical leftists are frantically burning, destroying, dismantling everything of America, from business to historic sites, harassing electoral sites, and deconstructing the foundation. the republic to replace the totalitarian socialist regime - will be abolished.
Of course, once the riots were abolished, this military deployment would cease, and the United States returned to a civil society. However, Underground State forces like Big Media and Big Tech will not sit and sit still once President Trump starts the Resurrection Act.
This "insane" faction will accuse President Trump of being a "military dictator" as they have long been attributed to him.At the same time, the Underground State forces will call on leftists to protest and rise. teach in the way that billionaire George Soros's Open Society Fund typically funds "color revolutions" that overthrow governments around the world.
His Open Society Foundation and other coalition organizations are the sponsors, supporters of the Democratic Party and radical liberal leftists, promoting racial wars, riots. , violence and revolution against America.
George Soros - the man behind many revolutions, riots overthrew the incumbent government worldwide, and profited to get rich through endless wars. (Getty)
George Eliason, investigative reporters of Americans now live in Ukraine, has connected the signs related to administration before Barack Obama with a wicked conspiracy to disturb and disrupt civil society America. This conspiracy is not only aimed at "overthrowing" President Trump from the White House, but also wants to open up a form of government in the line of atheistic communist socialism.
George Eliason released a report alleging that foreign terrorists were brought into the United States by conspiracy by former President Obama and CIA Director John Brennan. This shocking report indicates that the Obama administration "imported" foreign terrorists into the US in preparation for the Antifa / Black Lives Matter uprising, which caused chaos in US cities. (11)
So in recent months, domestic terrorists have been so strong that they shot and killed those who support President Trump, bombed gas bombs and destroyed federal government buildings. and attack the police. This is not difficult to predict that it will inevitably happen - to an even more intense extent - if President Trump is re-elected.
President Trump fully realized that a war against America had begun, and he decided to act decisively to protect America by "manipulating" the enemy when he declared that he would use legal military force and all executive powers of a commander in chief of the United States of America.
President Trump knew what was about to happen, and he molded the enemy by threatening to use the military to completely suppress uprising. (Getty)
President Trump's high-handed move
On August 23, just a day before the Republican National Congress began, President Trump held a major event welcoming the US Food and Drug Administration (FDA) for allowing emergency use. patient's plasma level COVID-19 was healthy during treatment. A few hours later, it was reported that the Trump administration was considering speeding up the vaccine test to get it and roll it out before the November election.
After voicing out that Democrats could fake votes if they passed the election. Letter, President Trump continued to shock with a statement related to vaccines: "The underground State elements at the FDA are trying to prevent companies from testing vaccines. They are looking to delay vaccines until after election day. 3-11 ", Mr. Trump wrote on Twitter August 22.
According to Bloomberg, the Trump administration is working to dramatically cut the time it takes to develop the coronavirus vaccine, with the goal of giving it enough doses for most Americans by the end of the year. Known as "Warp Speed", the campaign will bring together private pharmaceutical companies, government agencies and the military to try to cut the vaccine development time to eight months. (12)
In a matter of weeks In the past, the Trump administration has actively promoted the supply of vaccines on November 1 across the United States. (13) So why choose November 1 to provide vaccines? The answer is: November 1 is important because it is only two days away from the election (November 3). The Warp Speed ​​campaign on the surface involved vaccines, but in reality President Trump was not really "on the hook" with Big Pharma - home to the notorious vaccine manufacturing corporations. And President Trump has relied on this campaign to preserve national security by sending troops in every major city in the United States in an attempt to restore the rule of law, arrest leftist terrorists and traitors.
On March 27, 2020, President Trump issued an executive order that allowed the Pentagon to mobilize US veterans and members of the reserve force, and the National Guard returned to work. Permanent reinforcement for soldiers participating in the Army's COVID-19 pandemic campaign. (14)
The Individual Ready Reserve includes veterans, and members of the Mobilization Reserve, who are considered out of the military and rarely re-convened. These reserves will be deployed as part of the national defense against the Antifa terrorist groups, the Black Lives Matter. All of this could explain why President Trump pushed for the supply of vaccines on November 1, in which the military was sent to the country to "distribute" the vaccine.
This appears to be an extremely daring plan, "based on" the scheming brains of extremist left-wing Democracy - as a way of distributing troops across the country on election day, to prepare for application of the Resurrection Act immediately following elections.
Simply put, President Trump is a President of Law and Order.
Along with the continuous wave of American Police Associations voicing support for President Donald Trump, it can be said that the Democrats are on the same path. In other words, the Democrats were sticking him on his back, and to put it more literally, they were dancing the "music" exactly as the "talented composer": Donald Trump.

2020.09.18 03:06 day_cream Last week, I (27F) broke up with my partner (38M) of 3+ yrs. I ended things telling him he was abusive, but in the aftermath I’m trying to understand if he actually was. His behaviours are a bit different than other stories I’ve read & he was so adamant in convincing me I’m wrong.

I never imagined breaking up with my partner, who I truly believed was the love of my life. We talked about marriage and long term plans, and as dysfunctional as things got, I don’t think either of us actually thought we would break up. I’m having the typical emotions of wondering if I made a huge mistake, wondering if things could be fixed or if he could change, and I feel a big part of being able to move on is being able to establish whether or not he even was abusive. His denial and inability to understand that he’s an abuser is messing with me, and I want to make sure I didn’t jump to any conclusions, misunderstand, or otherwise label him unfairly. Any advice and insight is seriously appreciated!!
Explaining the entire story would be way too long, so I’ll just break it down into general categories of what he was doing. I also want to say that I definitely have regrets for the ways I acted at times during our relationship, (as a result of staying in it when I was deeply anxious and didn’t feel like I could trust him). I’ve been overbearing, paranoid and irritable, my sex drive has dropped, and I’ve been a lot less affectionate, and all of these things have really affected him.
  1. He has a very high sex drive, and right from the beginning, I felt that the expectation was to have sex every single time we hung out. At the beginning, I was pretty much down to have sex anytime he wanted to anyways. But about a month in I got a UTI, and while he expressed concern, helped me find a walk-in clinic, etc he also “politely” expressed disappointment when I said we may need to take a break from sex for a week or so. As time went on, and we continued having sex every single time we hung out, I started to feel like he would be shocked if I ever said no, and I didn’t feel that was healthy. On the once in awhile time that I did say no because I wasn’t feeling well, was way too tired, etc, he was visibly upset, sad, rejected. This created a subtle pressure, and when I eventually spoke to him about it, he admitted that he hadn’t handled his feelings of rejection well. Moving forward he didn’t act sad anymore, and sometimes even said things like “we don’t have to tonight”, but I still knew how disappointed he’d be inside if I said no. My sex drive started to really drop as a result of feeling like I didn’t really have a choice, but I continued mainly having sex every single time we saw each other. Near the end I would usually want to wait until the end of the night to do it, and he expressed a lot of disappointment and upset that I was always putting it off. He still got it nearly every time, but didn’t like that there was that much of a delay. On the odd time if I told him before he came over that I didn’t want to have sex that day, he would say he’d have to be late because he had to masturbate first. If I got upset about this, since he was already chronically late for every hang out and was supposed to be working out, he'd say that it's his body and he should masturbate when he wants without me shaming him. Other times, if we weren't going to have sex, he would agree to still come over but that he would later go home instead of sleeping over as planned so that he could masturbate (wanted privacy I guess?). A couple times he cancelled the hang out all together.
  2. Throughout the relationship I did not feel like I could trust him. In the first few months we had a pretty major red flag where he broke my trust more than once with a dating app. When I initially had asked him to delete it, he said he would and didn’t, so I was upset. (5 months in and this was the first time I’d ever gotten upset at him). I believe he gaslighted by saying that he’d dealt with enough bullshit from an abusive, controlling ex many years prior, and that he wasn’t going to tolerate it anymore. He told me he would absolutely delete the app because it “was a non-issue”, but angrily said not to bring it up and cause drama again. I felt so bad and completely believed him. Well, a month later while he was showing me something, I saw that he still had it. I made him delete it on the spot, and when he opened it he tilted it away from me so I couldn’t see the messages. He justified this as again, his abusive ex would’ve been mad at messages from before they met, so he was scared I would too because we “have some similarities”. I later found out that he had gone on a date early on while we were together, on a night when he had told me he was going to be early. He swears it was friendly/nothing happened, but I only found out by chance and he vehemently denied it for days until finally admitting. We went to couples counselling and then I went to aggressive anxiety/ocd counselling to try to get a handle on the obsessive thoughts I was having about whether or not he was cheating on me. We moved past it, but it set the stage early on, and I never felt like I could actually trust him. He told me his phone password and said I could look anytime, and I did once in awhile, but things always seemed to happen here and there where I felt like he was uncomfortable when I asked to use it, sometimes didn’t want to leave me around it alone if he went to another level of the house, etc. He always assured me that there was absolutely no issue and I was just being anxious/obsessing. On the day we broke up, he let me use his phone to look something up, and there was a bunch of search history for escorts, dating apps, “alternatives to tinder”, etc etc etc. In his notes folder, he had saved a couple profiles of sex workers. He had told me a few days before when I was begging him for hours to just come clean about everything that he had quickly googled escorts, but would have never followed through with it. He explained he was so deeply unhappy by the lack of affection and lack of desire he felt, plus all the fighting, that it was a rash search but would have never acted on it. His extensive search history combined with actually saving profiles of sex workers suggested at least a bit more intention than he let on, but he defended himself by saying he had even “admitted” it before.
  3. Near the end, I caught him in a few lies, from him lying about the price of a comic he bought, to finding out he had debt he’d never told me about. One of the things that made me uneasy all throughout the relationship was that he wouldn’t answer the phone when we were together. I reassured myself that it wasn’t another girl because they were normally 1-800 numbers. I even asked him if he had any outstanding debts, etc. Well, at the end I discovered about 30 phone numbers from the same collection agency that have been trying to reach him for literal years. According to him just over an old cable bill. He justified his lying by saying that while he realizes it was a mistake, they were mainly white lies that he told to avoid conflict because he didn’t think I would be understanding that “sometimes people make mistakes”.
  4. Our biggest arguments/fights were usually conversations gone wrong, initiated by me, and either about my issues trusting him, or about his chronic lateness or extremely messy (nearly hoarder’s level) apartment (both part of adhd which he wasn’t dealing with properly despite countless promises and excuses). During conversations even when I was justifiably upset, I found he would tone police me (and then become irate if I said that word), abruptly jump up and storm out, blame shift, not listen/understand my point so I would have to repeat it over and over and then he would say things were going in circles, he was getting a migraine, that I dominate conversations, that I had 30 seconds to wrap up or he was hanging up, etc. Near the end I was having massive panic attacks during fights (crying hysterically, hyperventilating etc), and he’d say “something is wrong with you, I’m really worried about you”.
I know this sounds bad but when we weren’t arguing (arguments I started!) he was a kind, helpful, considerate, extremely sensitive and thoughtful guy. I honestly considered him a rarity among men because of his sensitivity and empathy, and how in tune with his feelings he seemed to be. He did agree to seek individual therapy for himself, but would not properly admit to being an abuser, which is what ended our relationship. His absolute refusal to acknowledge being an abuser, despite wanting to be with my very much and knowing that refusing would cause us to break up, is really messing with me. I’m struggling to know whether or not he was was abusive. I’ve been reading books and listening to podcasts about emotional abuse, but I’m confused because he doesn’t do many of the behaviours like verbal abuse, picking on me, making me feel bad about myself, controlling me, etc. I didn’t feel I could trust him or really say no to sex whenever I felt like it, and he didn’t act well during arguments. But asides from those things, he was was wonderful. He never instigated any arguments himself, ever. He also does seem to possess high levels of empathy in the sense of being super supportive and helpful, caring deeply about animals, not even being able to stand suffering or sadness in movies.
If anyone has any insight into this specific situation I would be so grateful. I just can’t seem to figure him out. Thanks so much in advance <3

2020.09.17 23:21 Bawsified My Franchise Wishlist

Franchise has definitely taken a back seat the last couple of years as well as rtts bc of DD but It's a game mode I still rather enjoy and it's been deserving of a big update since 17'
Below I will suggest some QoL as well as some features and gameplay that could be adjusted or added.
Gameplay
These are some things that absolutely kill my mood for this mode sometimes and I would if I could prioritize having these adjusted.
Sending down a minor league player during spring training uses a minor league option. This does not happen in real life and what ends up happening to some of my players is some of the are automatically being placed on waivers because they are out of options, this has lead me losing countless prospects and starting players.
Players regression is pretty bad and in dire need of some adjustments. My magic number for a player falling off a cliff is there age 34 season and usually unusable by the time they hit 36 or 37. Players even start falling off when they hit 30. I don't need every player to play until they are 40 but when you are 99 overall with A potential there's no need to be retired by age 35
BB/9 makes or breaks a pitcher, alot of superstar pitchers such as Casey Mize, and Forest Whitely can turn out to peform terribly because despite having elite stats all around the board there BB/9 will be low. Despite being 95+ overall they tend to hover around a 4.5 ERA which is just not right. The most important stat for a pitcher is BB/9 and if it's not higher than a 65 or 70 on a pitcher they are more often than not useless. I've seen relievers who have a 95+H/9, a 95+K/9, and a 95+ H9 and they are unsusable because their BB/9 is too low.
The draft has way too many players who are way to low overall with high potential that will never develop. There really needs to be more superstar talent and atleast a 90 overall phenom every 5 years or so, the logic that players aren't allowed to hit there potential until 6 or 7 years for almost every players is rediculous, there needs to be players that are actually MLB ready out of the Draft or close to.
Trade Logic is bad and in need of a rework, the only thing the CPUs care about is overall, potential, and age, budget only matters to them if the trade exceeds thier budget but other than that trading 34 year old Chris Davis making 22 million in the minors is no problem. Also seasonal stats have no value to the CPU, I've traded for players leading the league in ERA who are on contending teams for low level prospects because thier only B potential and 82 overall.
The entire offseason is bad. Tendering contracts is such a pain, there needs to be a way to automatically renew contracts of players who are not on the 40 man and making 100k or less every year. Free agency is also awful, almost all of the players that are at the top of FA market are 30+ years old asking for maxed out contracts its a joke.
Morale should not be effected by how much a player makes, if you undercut a player by 5% of thier desired salary there moral will be heavily effected, I never understood the Idea that every player in the game is greedy enough to play below there stats because they are mad of a contract that they accepted.
minor problems
Awards are such as MVP are awful, it goes by who has the most HR and RBI and that's it, I've had players with 11 WAR season lose to someone with 3 or 4 war because they had more HR's.
Stats have no impact in trades or free agency, players have one the MVP one year and then left unsigned the next. CPU's care about overall too much and alot of players overall are heavily carried by defense and speed with no bat but possess a high trade value because there overall is high, this is why stats need to be factored into trades and other signings.
Features
Please please please add a history tab to players, when I click on a player I want to see how I got them, when I got them, and if they were traded who they were traded for. Thier is a roster history you can look at but it's so clunky and inconvenient, along with it doesn't tell you what year or date they were drafted or traded.
There really needs to be a league history. The closest thing is some all time records page of some basic accomplishments. I want to see what my teams record was 10 years ago. I want to be able to look at Mike Trouts stats after he retires. I want to see who led the MLB in war 6 years ago.
Let us trade more than 3 players and also send money over to another team.
The expansion team feature was half ass'd. All you do is change your team name and uniform. No expansion draft, no actual budget market changes, no choosing the division, you literally get to change the name of your team and the jersey and that's it. There needs to be a draft atleast.
Being able to see minor league stats. When you switch to your double AA team you could literally click the league leaders and see every stat for AA players such as WAR, OPS, everything so I don't understand why they can't just show those stats for players in the minors.
International free agents, simple way to add them is just to have randomly generated foreign players when free agency starts, and actually make free agency worth looking forward too.
Conclusion
There are countless things I didn't include, of course I don't expect much or any of these to be actually added next year but this is my dream wishlist if there ever was one, if just one of these features would be added or fixed I would be very pleased.

TUMO high-tech school to expand / Labs / Nano-tech / Programming / Science

Education Ministry gave a 15,000m2 land in Yerevan to TUMO so it can build an engineering and scientific facility.
 
Education Minister Harutyunyan: // the new labs will examine nano-technologies, biotech, and artificial intelligence.
Other universities can build their own specialized labs in TUMO and cooperate with TUMO's labs, under the condition that everyone will share all labs. Adults only.
 
They'll teach programming to non-programmers by using a French school's curriculum. Students of all ages are welcome.
A French university's programming faculty will be established in this building.
 
The construction begins in 2021 and ends in 2023. The facility will be self-financed a few years later. //
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195976

Parliament voted not to discuss Education Minister's resignation

Here is a context in case you missed the fight between opposition parties and Education Minister Harutyunyan: https://www.reddit.com/armenia/comments/iu1dcm/sep162020_news_education_reforms_ministe
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195960

Pashinyan joins Education Minister to roast Tsarukyan

Context: yesterday the "traditionalist" opposition politicians accused Education Minister Harutyunyan of harming the Armenian language, church, history, etc. because they disagree with the upcoming major reforms. The argument heated and the Minister said you can't rape women in church then talk about the church (hinting to BHK leader Tsarukyan's rape conviction).
 
Pashinyan today: // it's hard not to agree with the Minister. At first, you as a sergeant of police forces invite foreign women to show them a church, then you group-rape the guests and mug them. Then you engage in the protection of national values and identity. A true "patriotism". //
https://www.facebook.com/nikol.pashinyan/posts/2752700655050312

Tsarukyan roasts back

Tsarukyan responds: // I think it's time to amend the Constitution to clearly state that people with serious mental problems should not have the right to hold high political positions and endanger the public. //
 
Context: it's aimed at Pashinyan. Possibly related to the former regime's media circulating rumors that Pashinyan was exempt from military service due to mental problems. The record, however, shows he was exempt because two of his brothers had already served, which disqualified him.
Former regime also spread unverified Telegram rumors that Pashinyan went to a psychiatric clinic in 2019 and they even gave a specific doctors' name. Fact-checkers found it to be false; the doctor wasn't even in Armenia.
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195974

Ruling MPs respond to Tsarukyan / Minister's past

QP MP Alen Simonyan: // I'm confident that Tsarukyan's post about mental disorder was aimed at a fellow BHK MP Gevorg Petrosyan [the overly-traditionalist and anti-gay dude]. There are reports that he had mental problems dating back to the time when he was the Labor & Social Affairs Minister. His mental problem is why he had to leave the position after only holding the position for a few months. I'm sure the decision to replace him was made by Tsarukyan, who is currently trying to pretend to be a politician. //
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195974

BHK replies / they didn't joke about amending Constitution

BHK MP Iveta: // whoever that [mental health Facebook] post was aimed at has understood it was for them. No doubt QP MP Alen has a vivid imagination [about it being aimed at BHK Minister]. We're serious about amending the Constitution to block officials with serious mental problems. //
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195986

QP isn't joking, either / a bill already exists

QP MP Kristine: // then perhaps BHK should join and support the bill I introduced in 2019 which would require mental tests for MP candidates. If Parliament MPs elect a prosecutor who has to undergo a mental evaluation, why shouldn't MPs themselves undergo one?
BHK was against this bill. At the time, they said it was discriminatory and that anyone should be able to become MP. They must have had a change of mind since then. Maybe they'll support it now. //
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/195997

QP summoned a meeting

The ruling party held a large meeting this evening. The PM, Governors, and Ministers were present. It wasn't over the spat with Tsarukyan.
Some QP MPs will resign to get a job at the government. There might be other rotation.

anti-corruption reform: purchases by public officials could be monitored

Justice Minister Badasyan introduced a draft bill to amend the law to require public officials to disclose [in annual declaration form] any purchases larger than $4,000, or if a collection of similar purchases exceed $6,000 (so officials won't split the same purchase into smaller pieces to hide).
 
Moreover, the newly established Corruption Prevention Commission would be allowed to request an explanation if the official gains large properties within 2 years of leaving the office.
 
The definition of a luxury property would lower from $16,000 to $8,000 so more properties would need to be declared.
https://armtimes.com/hy/article/196000

should city council members also disclose their properties?

Another anti-corruption reform will require municipality councilmen to file the aforementioned declarations.
 
LHK is against this because "it adds extra burden on councilmen so the cities could lose valuable councilmen who can't manage to handle their work and file papers at the same time. It already takes a great amount of effort to convince some good councilmen to work."
QP countered LHK's argument with, "it doesn't matter that good councilman volunteer their time for the city. If they are public officials and make decisions for the public, they should file paperwork to reduce corruption."
 
One of these logics is simp while the other is chad. You decide... https://armtimes.com/hy/article/196000

former Yerevan State University rector is charged with embezzlement

Aram Simonyan is accused of embezzlement and/or waste. It's related to the Feb/19/2019 investigation in which he was accused of taking $10,000 in bribes. The SOC auditors had also discovered $830,000 in "damages" at the time.
 
It was later clarified that the new charges are about alleged embezzlement of $71,000 in 2015, which is part of that wider $830,000 corruption investigation done by SOC two years ago.
The former rector denied the accusations.

update: clothing import tariffs

Last week several clothing importer businesses protested the new law that will calculate border tariffs based on each imported item instead of the package's weight. Something about EAEU rules that were announced last year but was implemented now due to COVID delay.
Today the IRS and businesses met to discuss ways to ease the burden on businesses. They struck a cooperation deal.

COVID stats / schools / another wave coming?

4,319 tested in one day, the highest since July. +295 infected. +162 healed. +2 deaths. 3,232 active. 252,158 tested.
 
Pashinyan: although the daily tests have increased, the number of daily infections has increased too, crossing 200 again. The public should be concerned.
Healthcare Ministry: 7% of tested came positive. That's higher than before.
Pashinyan: I saw street traffic for the first time since March. Probably related to school reopening. Perhaps the uptick in infections is related to the shopping/social activities that happen before the school season.
Practically, masks are our only tool to fight the virus. The police should strictly enforce the mask law. Masks aren't for covering your chin, it's for your mouth and nose.
Healthcare Ministry: we predict a rapid spread of COVID. 1 patient will infect >1 healthy. Right now it's at 1.02, just days after it was less than 1. Wash your hands and keep a distance.

Coronawalrus forces Armenians to finally explore their country

Internal tourism boomed while air travel was banned. Here are some lesser-known sites that Armenians "discovered...
Tsiranavor church
... is in Ashtarak, Aragatsotn. The legend says 3 sisters fell in love with a dude named Sargis. The two elder sisters sacrifice themselves so the small sis will be happy with Sargis. They wear orange "tsirani" dress and jumped off a cliff, hence the name Tsiranavor. (FFS)
Dashtadem Castle
Located near Dashtadem, Aragatsotn, the castle was built on the 7th century on top of an ancient Urartian castle.
Agarak historical-cultural reserve
... is near Agarak, Aragatsotn. It's a rocky promontory of volcanic tuff protrusions (god bless google translate).

Yerevan's clinics are developing

As part of a plan to develop Yerevan clinics, which are often a subject of quality-related complaints, this year the city spent $415,000 (3x vs 2018) to buy medical equipment.
"Clinics should be good enough to prevent patients from ending up in hospitals," said Mayor Marutyan, "last year we purchased 325 pieces of equipment. This year it's 134. Five clinics will be renovated."

Pashinyan intervenes to extend Yolyan director's contract

Yolyan blood clinic's director was supposed to be laid off on October 1st due to the contract's expiration. Ministry said it was due to his retirement age. A group of doctors asked Pashinyan to extend the contract, or else they'd quit.
Today Pashinyan decided to extend his contract. He also criticized some of the doctors who "pressured him by threatening to quit and intentionally place cancer-patient children's lives at risk."

The discrimination of ethnic Armenians in Moscow continues

Moscow's largest Azeri-owned "Food City" bazaar still won't allow Armenian sellers to place an ad sign in their booths. Sellers complain it harms trade.
Truck drivers with Armenian license plates still aren't allowed to enter, although the bazaar administration left a "loophole" and allows trucks if the plates are covered.
Moscow authorities earlier claimed the conflict was "settled" but the sellers say otherwise.
The conflict between Food City and Armenians began after Azerbaijan lost the July Battles and Food City's Azeri owner got upset at ethnic Armenian civilians.

more families of deceased soldiers to get free lawyers

Parliament voted 120-1 to approve a BHK bill to expand the list of people who qualify for free legal services.
Until now, families of those who died from the enemy fire could get lawyers for free. With the new law, non-combat deaths will also qualify.
Presumably, this isn't only about legal services related to the soldier's death; it's in general. The families cannot use the free legal service for business disputes, trials in which the compensation sum is very large, etc.

inciting a genocide is now a felony crime

Parliament voted 121-0 to approve a QP bill to set an 8-10 year prison sentence for publicly and directly inciting a genocide.

2020.09.17 21:44 Pjd7510 Group Select Survey Results

Top 3 answers get +3, +2. and +1 balls, bottom 3 answers get -3, -2, -1.
LETS GET STARTED
Question 1: Favorite Baseball Player and Why
Dylan
Growing up every day with Chipper and Andruw Jones in the Braves lineup for the first like 15-20 years of my life was special, Chipper in particular. Acuna is catching up fast, though.
I asked for one player though, not your entire Barves lifestory
Bnavis
Jake Arrieta, his rise really mirrored the cubs, and that 2015 season was incredible.
Arrieta can pound a bag of dicks for being absolute shit
Ruairi
Barry Bonds. He was the greatest hitter of all-time and it isn't even up for discussion. He was a hall of famer before the "alleged" steroid use and became the greatest player of all-time after. The man would get one pitch in the strike zone to hit every night and he would hit it for a home run everytime. No batter has ever been feared the way Barry was feared, not even close. Everyone can say they hate Barry Bonds and don't respect him or whatever crap they want to spew out, but the truth is, when he came up to bat, literally everyone stopped what they were doing to see what he would do, and then when he'd hit a massive home run, everyone would be in awe of his insane abilities.
Barry Bonds is lowkey one of my favorite players, this is valid reasoning.
Polelover
David Ortiz. Self-explanatory.
Fuck the Red Sox
Bgro
Jason Kendall bc he was a leadoff catcher and gritty as hell. He refused to ever sit out a game even though he played such a demanding position.
Kendall was one of my favorite Pirates to watch, glad to see someone else is a big Kendall fan
Jiggy
matt kemp, restored my love of the game. in his prime he was incredible and he seemed to be having a blast playing. oh and i'm hyper vain and he dated rhianna while being the best player in the sport and i think that's cool as fuck.
Kemp should have won MVP over Braun. Fuck Ryan Braun
Rose
Frank Thomas? Frank Thomas is just a mythical figure of childhood for me. The 2006 A's were an extremely formative team for my baseball fandom and Frank Thomas was probably the first time a player I was already aware of outside of the A's became relevant to the A's, and having him play for Oakland felt like being blessed by a god. Objectively or statistically there are more dominant hitters than Frank Thomas in history but in my mind he's the most impeccable hitter of all time.
I forgot that Big Hurt was an A. Thomas was a fun player to watch
Cory
Rickey Henderson. Unbelievable talent with a rare skillset, combined with a cool "hometown hero" story, long career, endless mythology and great stories.
Yankees Legend Rickey Henderson
Wharble
Vladimir Guerrero for teaching me that strike zones are merely suggestions
It's a shame his son took that lesson the opposite way
Iama
Mariano Rivera, just a great feeling when he would come into the game and lock it down. ice cold blood in the veins, and a great team player and ambassador for the game.
There will never be another as good as Mo when it comes to locking down a game
+3 Ruairi, +2 Rose, +1 Jiggy
-3 Pole, -2 Dylan, -1 Bnavis
Question 2: Favorite High School Story
Dylan
We used to pay "high stakes" Call of Duty at my friend tommy's basement. We played gun game on black ops. if you lost you got fingered in your butthole
Kinky
Wharble
that time in high school I went to Edinburgh to perform a musical for some Scots

probably driving to a city of 30k people in the middle of buttfuck nowhere, getting piss drunk and doing Too Much Molly for one person. we did all this shit and it's like 1:30, walk to a dominos and wait outside for our shit. all of a sudden this dude comes up to us and asks us if we were the ones that catcalled his gf (we were not) to which one of my buddies said "nah but i wish i would've." dude gets in his truck and chases us down streets of moose jaw saskatchewan for thirty minutes as we run for our lives while smoking grape flavored cigarillos. we get separated, i lose my phone, sleep on a merry-go-round in a park in october (so like it's 25 degrees at best) and walk to a starbucks to find a stranger that'll let me use their laptop to contact my friends bc i don't know their numbers, forgot my facebook password, forgot my gmail password to reset it, end up on this middle aged man's 15 year old dell laptop for forty minutes trying to figure out how to contact my friends while still fucked up, eventually a dude i partied with happened to walk past and i ran outside and got him to call dan, dan picks me up and we drive back home and eat pizza hut
Holy shit

Oh boy strap in for this one. So it's freshman year of college. I live in the dorms. I'm single and have next to no experience with girls/parties. It's Halloweekend (the weekend of Halloween so very many parties at SDSU). Unfortunately, I was not in a frat so I was not allowed in any frat parties, so I had to party in the dorm. Anyway. My roommate went to his gf football game (she was a cheerleader for a community college 30 minutes away) so I was just hanging out in my room with the door open to talk with anyone from my floor that wanted to hang. This girl from the floor below me (that I had just met a few days ago and showed off my baseball knowledge to in the study room) walks by my room and stops. She says hi and comes in and I'm talking with her. She has a bottle of cranberry juice and vodka and offers me some. Obviously, I accept. She says she has a full bottle of vodka in on her floor and she'll bring it up to party with me. A really attractive girl wants to hangout with me on Halloween while she is dressed up and wants to get me drunk? Hell yea! So she goes down to her floor and I wait for her to come back. But then about 20 minutes have gone by and she has not come back, leaving me to believe she had bailed :(. So I go across the hall to my friends room to drink and play super smash bros. About an hour or two goes by and I've had some shots just vibin on the floor. A few of the girls who went out to a party had come back and I was hanging out with them. Then the girl from the floor below came back with friends and was trashed. She was in our study lounge puking in the trash so I was in there taking care of her and helping her out. I was just rubbing her back and getting her water while holding her hair. There was a weird dude on our floor who was into her also trying to help but it was super weird and uncomfortable with him there because well as I said he was weird and creepy. After an hour, one of my other friends said Chase and Diego were letting people in their room (now these kids didn't talk much to anyone, except Chase. Me and him were boys). So I went over to their room to see what was poppin' because this was a moment of a lifetime. Chase was a little drunk but Diego was smashed and so was his gf. Total in the room it was me, Chase, Diego, his gf, a dude name Kayvon, and two other girls, Leah and Katie. I was just hanging out talking with everyone and then the three girls were talking about french kissing. Leah hadn't ever frenched so the other girls wanted to show her how. So they passed each other around like a bong just frenching it up. I was dumbfounded. This is what college is??? I'd seen videos but I didn't think they were real. Diego was getting super into his gf making out with these two other girls, kinda hyping them up. Once they had stopped frenching, Katie and Leah left the room. Diego started to get the spins and tried to lay down on his bed. Then he vomited on himself. Me, already experienced with vomit in the evening, tried to help him out and get him up and to the bathroom or at least the trashcan. I did what I could but then his gf was acting all crazy and yelling at me to get out of the room, so I did. I returned to the cute drunk girl on the couch, as I told her I would be gone for just a few minutes (it was really about 20-30). She was super excited to see me again. At that point, she asked me to watch the World Series with her, as the Mets and Royals were going to play Game 5 (I believe) on the Sunday (the next day). I told her of course I would and that I'd be watching in that very study lounge. After a little while longer, I told her she needed to go to bed so I walked her down to her room while the weird creepy dude followed us. I wasn't going to let him walk her to her room because frankly I didn't trust the dude. Got her to her room, said good night, and that was the end of that. I went back to my room and told my roommate and his gf about the eventful night I had. Jumping back to earlier in the story, cute girl said she had returned to my room about 30 minutes later but she couldn't get the vodka from her floor because some dudes had taken it. I had left my room at that point so she ended up going out to the party instead since I wasn't there. I did end up dating that girl for a decent amount of time, but that's for a different survey.

Frosh year. My roommates and I had a couple dorm floor mates who either only have weekday meal plans, or no meal plan at all. So we started casually stealing them some non-perishable goods to last them over the weekend. Through natural progression, this slowly turned into us creating an entire klepto organization that eventually fed most of our dorm house. We had a few tricks. One was bringing sports bags in with us - they would make you check backpacks at the door, but since sports bags might have expensive equipment, they let you take them in. So we'd just stuff them full of gallon bags of cereal, bagels, etc. Our dining hall had a patio area, where at night, you could see in from the outside, but not vice versa. We would load up our plates with one type of food, grab a gallon or two of milk, a tray of cookies, etc., saunter out to the patio, bag/pack everything up, and then toss it over the railing to our Outside Man down below, who would then take it back. At the end of the year, the dining hall had a program where you could return anything you "walked off accidentally" with with no repercussions, so we went to collect and tally any cups/bowls/plates/silverware we'd liberated, and found ourselves with two full boxes of stuff. Fearing *some* sort of repercussions from the sheer volume of stuff, we waited until the DH was closed one night, climbed over the railing, and left the boxes on a patio table.
This is amazing

when my sister lived in vancouver i flew there and then we drove from vancouver to tijuana together and camped on beaches and shit

Ruairi
Well, since my brother and I played baseball year round from elementary school through high school, we didn't take many/any vacations. So I will have to say the only real vacation I've taken is my trip to Texas a few weeks ago. It was amazing getting to see my best friend with our other best friend. Shot real guns for the first time. Went to the beach a couple of times and the water was so warm, it was amazing. Had Texas BBQ and it was to die for. It was super cool being in a somewhat small town since I've grown up in San Diego/Temecula for my whole life and haven't lived in a farm-like town. It was a super cool experience and I would easily risk getting coronavirus to do it again.
Thats pretty dope, small towns are always fun to go to
Rose
my favorite 'vacation' ever was actually recent. i dogsit for my sister sometimes when she goes somewhere and get to spend a week or so getting paid to relax at her apartment in san francisco with her dog and drinking and eating good food. it's nice because it's not touristy, i'm not staying at a hotel or anything, it's more like dipping my toes into living in a big city for a week or two and then getting to return to my normal life afterwards. my 'favorite vacation' was when i was there for over a week last year just chilling with no responsibilities other than taking care of her dog
The best vacations are the ones where you do absolutely nothing

negotiate things with the unions to make sure i can do the following fire rob manfred from any position he may hold (also joe west, cb bucknor, angel hernandez, and laz diaz) fix the minor league wage system so players make a living wage; also adjust the prearb/arb/fa system for better fairness abolish the dh and/or maintain the al/nl system abolish bad extra inning rules and/or robot umps, if they have been implemented bring back the bullpen car more doubleheaders bring back disco demolition night

Jiggy
  1. no interleague 2. no divisions, just leagues 3. 12 games against each league opponent, 168 game schedule (until expansion, see 9; after expansion this will become 165 games, 15 against each league opponent) 4. al dh, no dh in nl 5. top 3 make playoffs in each league, 1 gets a bye. 2v3 in a best of 7, winner vs 1 in a best of 9, best of 11 world series (i realize it's not fun viewing but it gets the best result) 6. fines for anyone who tries to institute unwritten rules or whatever the fuck, promote the shit out of guys like tatis/tim anderson that make the game fun 7. no baserunner on 2nd rule 8. legalize steroids 9. expand to 38 teams, play one season. bottom 7 in each league go down to make a 24 team mlb and a 14 team mlb2, following this, use the english promotion/relegation system but with 4 from each league now. so effectively, bottom 4 in the al automatically go down, top 3 from al-mlb2 automatically come up and then a playoff of 4v7 and 3v6 from mlb2's al (best of 3 round 1, best of 5 round 2) to determine the fourth team that rejoins the majors. 10. create a more fun environment at the game. music throughout the game, including during play, also every team has a small waterpark at the ballpark 11. encourage players to have cool cleats why is trevor bauer the only one taking advantage of this 12. go back to pre-2017 balls
Jiggy gets it
Rose
make the wild card a 3 game series played in 2 days (games 1 and 2 as a double header,) expand to 32 teams (portland and montreal/charlotte/nashville,) universal DH (i don't mind both leagues having different rules but universal DH is probably the pandemic induced rule that makes the most sense to keep,) execute Alex Bregman on live TV, don't kill the minor leagues, don't do any other dumb bullshit, sit back and watch the money stack
Yes absolutely bring back the Expos, fuck Ass Bergman

Chicken Bryan Kane's little brother, thus making me the Undertaker's grandson The Carraba's Crusher - honestly it'd just be ember moon's eclipse bc it's the coolest shit
Only issue, Kane is already Undertakers brother so you would also be Undertakers brother. That said maybe we can bring Taker out of retirement for a one off with you
Ruairi
Ring Name: The Notorious Ruairious. Gimmick: I am a Northern Irishman who uses a wicked head butt to stun and knock out opponents. I have swagger, but am very humble. I throw off my opponents by complimenting their bodies rather than trash talking them. Finisher: I get the opponent on the ground and do a jig over them, as my kicks knock them unconscious.
This is a dope gimmick, would likely book you to face Sheamus for 3 months before going for the WWE Title.
Rose
Ring name is Anne Phibian, my finisher is a Frog Splash and my gimmick is that i am extremely into frogs and i brutally beat down opponents and share Frog Facts with the audience on the mic while they are incapacitated
Instant top heel in the Women's division. Would book you to face Charlotte Flair at Wrestlemania for the Women's Title.
Cory
The Mortician (Cory *Graves*). My gimmick would be crawling my up through the bottom of the ring to start each match. We would then have to wait for the mat to be repaired before beginning the match. Finisher: The Scalpel - I run back and forth between the ropes a few times, gaining momentum, eventually bouncing off, going into a horizontal pencil dive motion, and kicking my opponent square in the chest.
I can see some good feuds between you and The Fiend Bray Wyatt. Could be a good wrestlemania match.
Dylan
Bitch, I'm Big Pepsi I'm sponsored by Pepsi Co. to deliver the sweet taste of Pepsi products to the world, BY FORCE The Baja Blaster - I yeet a full cup of MTN DEW Baja Blast (tm) into my opponent's eyes before hitting them with a shoryuken from street fighter
I dig it. Will book you as a main eventer before having you job to Roman Reigns and then banish you to the midcard forever
Bgro
My ring name is "El Ratoncito Miguel" which translates to "The Little Rat, Miguel". My gimmick is that I always pretend I'm not actually there to fight, I'm just lost and looking for directions. I insist way beyond a humorous amount of time that I'm really not a wrestler and you must have me mistaken and how do you get to Union Street. Then, when everyone's going home and the lights are turned off, that's when I attack. My finisher is called Open-Face Slap, where I run to one side of the ring and then charge full speed at you and open face slap you.
Instant Top Chicken Shit Heel. You can win the WWE Title on a fluke before losing it at Mania to someone like Daniel Bryan

Understandable
Ruairi
I have a co-worker who has a full survival shelter with many guns. I go to him to survive.
Good move
Rose
i don't believe in my ability to survive alone in an apocalyptic scenario so i would determine if i'm reasonably close to a costco. if i think i'm close enough i believe a society of about 200-300 people could survive in a barricaded costco for several months at least without issue, and i will try to get a footing there. if i can't make it to something like that i will seek out the strongest most prepared looking person in my neighborhood and pray they show mercy.
Good to have a plan
Cory
Hoard gasoline and water (a la The Immortan Joe from Mad Max: Fury Road). If that doesn't work out, I would travel from settlement to settlement, bard-style, recanting happenings from neighboring settlements and regaling folks with song.
That man making the best of a bad situation
Dylan
Go to the basement of the newspaper office downtown. Literally nobody ever goes there, and there's no easy way down there without a pass. Also has a showeshittespace. Also has a secret tunnel to the building across the street if I need to bail.

honestly last new years me and gf and a few friends went to a rave and got drunk/did a fuckton of ecstasy and danced our asses off then went to this little hidden rooftop in downtown saskatoon that i stashed a few bottles of tequila and some cigarettes on and danced and smoke and drank up there and yelled at strangers on the street until like 4 then got an uber home, passed out, and then made a fuckpile of waffles and watched horror movies in the basement all new years day it was so fucking fun
Thats fucking awesome
Ruairi
Oh man this is a tough one. There are two that stand out in my mind, but I'm not sure which one to go with. I will tell another story about the cute girl I mentioned earlier in this survey. So this was a few months later (4 or 5). We started dating shortly after that Halloween night for the record. We spent pretty much everyday together since we lived just a floor apart and quickly became best friends. Anyway, it was a few months later and we were in her room. It was a Friday and I didn't have class until 1 on Fridays. We were making out on her bed and at one point she stopped and just looked at me. She started crying and I was confused so I asked her what was wrong. Through a cracked voice she says "I love you." It was the first time anyone had ever told me they loved me in that way and I had been thinking about telling her that I felt the same way leading up to this day but was too scared to. When she said it, I was then able to say it, which surprised her because I wasn't a very open person back then. It's one of the best feelings to have someone you love tell you that they love you back. And even though we aren't together anymore, the memory is still a good one for me, because it reminds me that I can be loved and I can feel love for someone, even in times when those things don't seem possible.
This brought a tear to my eye my dude
Rose
it feels slightly underwhelming to call it my happiest memory because it didn't last in the end but i think the most undeniably happy thing i can think of is entering my first real romantic relationship as a teenager. a lot of that time of my life i was fighting with depression and a genuine and significant romantic relationship was a realization that i could be deserving of love from other people and that i could connect and relate to another person in ways i was afraid i wasn't capable of.
This fucking hit me hard because I've been there
Cory
Camping with my brother and parents. Usually our trips involve some amount of shouting and fighting, even the really good ones. But this trip, we just spent three wonderful days in the wilderness, enjoying nature, eating good campfire foods, laughing and playing board games. Some catchphrases were spawned while playing those games that my family still quotes to this day.
That's awesome, I'd give anything to have that kind of time with my family again
Dylan
I went to a concert with a friend of mine that had just left the company we had worked for. She was in a relationship but she asked me to go with her because she had an extra ticket. It was a great time, really fun, great vibes. Didn't realize at the time that would be the person I'd be living with about 3-4 years later. Don't know if it's my happiest memory but it makes me really happy, know what I mean?
Thats awesome dude
Bgro
Either various moments on my solo bike trip across the country where I just felt total tranquility and satisfaction near the end of my trip OR this one time when my first nephew was like one and I was his favorite person and I took him out for a walk. He was distracted and I walked a little ahead of him and when he turned and noticed me a little further away, we made eye contact, he grinned a wide smile and then ran to me arms wide open for a hug. Kids do that kind of stuff all the time to people they know and trust but I've never felt such pure unadulterated love as I have from that kid in that moment. There is no artifice or conditionality in that sort of love. It felt good to be the cause of that someone else's sheer joy and seeing his face light up when he saw me, thats a memory that always brings me happiness.

2020.09.17 19:24 franciscolora0524 What are your favorite Elementor addons?

Sup everyone! Time for some more quick WP info!
TLDR: I quickly reviewed/listed my top 5 Elementor addons/plugins to help bolster your site. Dynamic OOO is to me, the best one. Which one is your favorite?
So, pretty much out of the box Elementor is absolutely FANTASTIC. But if you want to give your site that extra boost either on the front-end or functionality-wise, you may want to think about using addons. When I first started using addons, I made the mistake of using too many at once, thereby slowing down my site and filling it with bloat and unnecessary scripts. Lesson learned: use one addon, max two at a time.
Either way, I've seen a billion different addons and most of them do the same thing and have many widgets overlapping/duplicated. I hope I made the process easier of choosing an addon by listing the top 5 I'd recommend. I've used them all and tested them all so this is a high-level overview. One of the addons/plugins that I reviewed is the most comprehensive of the bunch and takes a different approach when compared to the other front-end centric add-ons. All in all, it's a pretty comprehensive list of Elementor add-ons that can help bolster your site from a front end perspective and help you add great functionality to your site's content.

PREMIUM ADDONS

One of the more popular Elementor addons, Premium Addons, is a pretty good introduction to how addons can bolster the front end of your site, in addition to what Elementor comes with by default.While this is a mostly front-end type of addon, it's still one that I find quite useful and one that I've used in the past. It's also lightweight so if you don't plan on adding more functionality to your site, this is a nice addon to improve the front-end of your site without filling the site with unnecessary bloat.With a free and premium version, its more than 50 Elementor widgets and features make it an easy choice for web designers who want to get more out of Elementor. I noted the Horizontal Scrolling feature because in my opinion, it's a microcosm of the entire plugin. It turns the normal, vertical scrolling of your site structure and turns it into a

ESSENTIAL ADDONS

So this is an addon that has been around for quite some time and packs quite the punch. With a free and a premium version, it's perfectly suited for either beginners or those who want a bit of extra power with their Elementor-based sites.I went over a couple of different features of the addon and noted that there are some features that are pretty advanced and in my opinion are things that are worth every penny. The Sticky Video feature, for instance, is something that's perfectly suited for video-based sites. It allows a user to continue browsing the site while having the video stuck to any part of their page, kind of like the YouTube feature.There's also a feature tailor-made for news sites. The "Content Ticker" feature allows the ability to add a new's ticker to the top of your header for instance. While this is possible with other features of different addons, this is a pretty intuitive one that makes the user experience that much better.

ULTIMATE ADDONS

This is the Elementor addon that ships with the premium version fo the Astra theme. In addition to the widgets that come equipped with Ultimate Addons, it also has a growing library of ready-to-use full demo websites. I've actually used this a lot as a starting point to create websites in a variety of different industries. It's cool that they also keep this up to date, adding a bunch of full site demos periodically.Again, this is suited for beginners. But it can also be used by agencies. As I mentioned before, Ultimate addons come as part of any of the premium versions of the theme so having this as an essential tool in your Elementor arsenal isn't a bad option.

POWER PACK ELEMENTS

Not surprisingly, I added PowerPack Elements to this list because it's a great mixture of elements that improve front-end design work and one that adds a pretty good amount of functionality to Elementor including things like advanced display conditions, a headefooter builder, cross-domain copy/paste and more.I noted their array of Woocommerce widgets and the ability to customize the Woocommerce account pages, among other things because it's something that many people have trouble customizing.

DYNAMIC CONTENT FOR ELEMENTOR

This is by far and away my favorite and what I think is the most comprehensive addon of the bunch. I like it so much because it takes a different, more developer-friendly approach to addons. Things that would normally require custom coding in PHP/JS is now able to be done on the front end with this plugin. It's well worth your time to browse their website and learn the different features that the plugin offers. It's worth noting, however, that any combination of the features/elements of the plugin allows you to build complex WordPress based applications such as membership-based sites, news sites, directories, etc. Equipped with features like Dynamic Visibility, Remote Content, Dynamic users, and more, the possibilities are endless with what you can build with this plugin.Simply writing about the features doesn't do it justice but I've shown a sample of what you can achieve with the plugin. On their website, there are resources that help you make better use of all of the features the plugin has to offer.
Let me know what you guys think!

2020.09.17 18:59 antricfer Is there a time limit for the landlord to produce an inventory?

England. I moved into my new house on the 7th and my requests for an inventory were ignored and dismissed. Today 10 days later agency sent me an email with inventory dated the 4th. When I moved in I found several issues, house was filthy, water leaking from ceiling, window not working and more. I quickly discovered the Landlady is clearly a witch. The inventory omits the problems and paints a picture completely different from reality. She clearly is gearing up for deposit war! What are my options and what could I do to protect myself? I did take pictures of everything and sent them an email describing the problems.

2020.09.17 18:58 LandOwn9852 The Manuscripts of the New Testament (Bart D. Ehrman)

Before I start explaining what The Orthodox Corruption of Scripture was about, why I wrote it, what motivated me, and what I wanted to accomplish I (quite obviously, you may be noticing) have to provide a lot of background information. We’ve now moved on from talking about early Christian diversity (orthodoxy and heresy) and are now into discussing “textual criticism,” the academic discipline that tries to establish what an author actually wrote if you don’t have his original but only copies made from later times.
To set the stage for what I really want to talk about, first I have to summarize some of the most important information about the textual “witnesses” to the text of the New Testament. I won’t be going into this information at any serious length. We could have many, many, many posts on virtually every single detail that I mention. But trust me, you don’t want that.
There are three kinds of witnesses to the text of the New Testament, that is to say, three kinds of documents that can help us establish what the authors actually wrote.
First, obviously, are …THE REST OF THIS POST IS FOR MEMBERS ONLY. If you don’t belong yet, JOIN!!! Otherwise, you may never know!!!
First, obviously, are the Greek manuscripts of the New Testament. These are copies of the New Testament in the language in which the books were originally written, produced by later scribes, who were copying earlier copies that had been made by scribes who were copying earlier copies that were made by scribes…. well you get the point. We have in excess of 5600 whole or fragmentary of these copies. I’ll say more about them in a moment.
Second, we have ancient “versions” of the New Testament. These are translations of the New Testament from antiquity, into languages such as Latin, Syriac, Coptic, Ethiopic, Armenian, Gothic, Old Church Slavonic, and so on. We don’t have the “originals” of any of these translations, but only later manuscripts (in the case of the Latin, possibly as many as 10,000 copies!); but where we can use the surviving copies reconstruct what Greek text these versions were based on, then we would know what the Greek manuscripts copied by the translators looked like in the time and place they were doing their translations. This, obviously requires a good bit of technical linguistic skill.
Third, we have “Patristic evidence,” that is, the quotations of the New Testament by church fathers who were writing about a variety of things in which they cited the New Testament here and there. If you can see how a church father such as Didymus the Blind, in, say, the year 360 CE, quoted the Gospel of Matthew, then you could reconstruct (partially) what his Greek manuscript(s) of Matthew looked like at that time and place. Part of the problem is that we don’t have the originals of the church fathers’ writings either, but only later copies. This kind of evidence is tricky to use. It is what I wrote my doctoral dissertation on (specifically, on the quotations of the Gospels in the writings of Didymus). I’ll devote a couple of posts to it anon.

Everyone agrees that of all this evidence, the most important is the Greek manuscript tradition of the New Testament, so let me say a few things about that evidence here.
New manuscripts of the New Testament – always fragmentary, as it turns out – are being discovered all the time, a lot of them by my friend and occasional debate opponent Dan Wallace and his Center for the Study of New Testament Manuscripts (see: http://www.csntm.org/home/about ). Dan is a professor of New Testament at Dallas Theological Seminary. His Center is set up to photograph and so digitize all the surviving manuscripts of the New Testament, and in the process of traveling around the world to do so, he and his colleagues have discovered previously unknown manuscripts, some of which have not yet been catalogued.
The official cataloguing agency for New Testament manuscripts is in Münster, Germany and is called the Institute for New Testament Textual Research; it was started by a famous NT textual critic named Kurt Aland. It is the institute that gives all the surviving manuscripts their official “numbers.” For over more than the past 50 years, it has done the most significant work in studying the surviving textual witnesses of the NT (especially the Greek, Syriac, and Coptic witnesses). You can get a sense of their work at their website: http://egora.uni-muenster.de/intf/index_en.shtml
We have over 5600 Greek manuscripts of the New Testament that have been discovered and catalogued. These range in size from tiny fragments with a few words from a verse or two, to enormous full-length manuscripts of the entire New Testament.
These manuscripts are typically listed under four categories (the categories can be somewhat confusing because they are not arranged according to the same consistent criteria: some of them are based on the writing material used for the manuscript; some on the style of Greek handwriting; and some on the use for which the manuscript was designed – as I’ll explain below).
Papyri. These, as a rule (that is often broken) are our oldest surviving manuscripts. They are Greek manuscripts written on papyrus (rather than parchment/animal skin). We at present have 131 of these.
Majuscules (used to be called Uncials). These (some of which are older than some of the papyri) are Greek manuscripts written on parchment/animal skin using a large kind of letter, kind of like English capital letters (which are the kind of letters used for papyri as well!). These are our oldest non-papyri manuscripts At present we have 325 majuscule manuscripts
Minuscules. These are also written on parchment/animal skin, but not with majuscule letters but more with a kind of cursive style of writing that was easier and quicker for scribes to produce (and harder for most people today to read). We start getting minuscule manuscripts around the 7th century CE (some majuscules were produced after that date as well). We currently have 2925 minuscule manuscripts (actually, there may be a few more: I’m having trouble tracking down the precise number just now).
Lectionaries. These are also written on parchment/animal skin (usually) and are also almost always written with minuscule script, but they are not manuscripts that give an entire NT book or collection of books per se; they are books that take passages from one NT book or another and combine them together for worship services, so that on one day a passage from one book would be written; another day there would be a passage from another book; and so on. We currently have 2463 of these.
In my next post I’ll say more about these manuscripts and why they are both invaluable for scholarship and, in some ways, problematic.

2020.09.17 18:41 JBL_0 The unfreezing of the CJNG accounts, frozen in June in an U.S.-Mexico cooperative operation

The unfreezing of the CJNG accounts, frozen in June in an U.S.-Mexico cooperative operation


In June, directly the head of the Financial Intelligence Unit of the Ministry of Finance and Public Credit, Santiago Nieto, boasted - that in an operation he called "Blue Agave", they had managed to freeze the bank accounts of 1,939 entities , between people, companies, and trusts linked to the Cartel Jalisco Nueva Generación criminally headed by Nemesio Oceguera, "El Mencho." The operation had the direct involvement of the United States Anti-Narcotics Agency, the main source of the location of the criminal targets.
The figures of the seized and the investigated were really impressive, billions of dollars in illicit operations, the same in international operations, and interbank transfers for more than 650 million pesos.
The President of the Republic, Andrés Manuel López Obrador, not only confirmed the operation in one of his morning conferences, but also reported that it had been based on an express request from the United States.
On the morning of June 3, he answered: “There was a request from the United States Government in the sense that they had information, and according to the cooperation agreements, they had to freeze accounts of this group and that was what made".
In the freezing of accounts, there was everything from sisters and sisters-in-law of noted drug traffickers and their wives, to pharmaceutical companies, real estate companies, automotive companies, construction companies, tequila companies and even municipal governments of Jalisco.

But ... there was a problem in the process, and the vaunted action against the CJNG by the López Obrador government did not have the collaboration of the Attorney General's Office.
To date, as stated in a ZETA report by Luis Carlos Sainz, at least two women, five mayors and others, have managed to have their savings and checking accounts unfrozen. And two more people, all linked to the Oseguera family circle, are awaiting a judicial resolution, which, based on the background, is presumed favorable for them.
It turns out that the UIF managed directly with the National Banking and Securities Commission, the freezing of the accounts, and a thesis of the Second Chamber of the Supreme Court of Justice of the Nation, provides that the block of financial resources only proceeds upon request. of a foreign authority based on the Cooperation Treaty between the United States and Mexico, and that this request must be addressed to the FGR, which is the coordinated Mexican authority.
Once this process is carried out, the FGR is channeled to the competent authority. In any case, the FIU should have reported such illegal conduct to the Attorney General's Office, and this should have been notified by the Ministry of Foreign Relations, of the foreign petition.
But the Financial Intelligence Unit "received" directly from the U.S., a foreign authority, a case confirmed by the President, and acted accordingly, therefore legally, since the FGR was not the receiving authority and the authority of the action, it was violated Due process and those “affected” with the freezing of accounts, their rights are restored.
This is the case of Erika and Berenice González Valencia, sisters-in-law of “El Mencho”, sisters of Abigail González Valencia “El Cuini”, to whom a district court based in Jalisco, granted provisional suspension so that “authorities can unblock/unfreeze the blocking”.
Those who also managed to have their resources, and those of their relatives, unblocked, from a provisional suspension, are the Mayors of Auxtlán, Ixtalahuacán, El Grullo, Villa Purificación and Casimiro Castillo.
Regarding the unfreezing of accounts insured in the Agave Azul operation, neither the Attorney General of the Republic, Alejandro Gertz Manero, nor the head of the UIF, Santiago Nieto, have declared anything, however… the animosity between them is known.
In January 2020, in an appearance, Gertz Manero expressed: "The FGR has been very respectful of the presumption of innocence ... because there are units, not from the Prosecutor's Office, but from the Government, that do not respect that presumption." She completed: "Government units affirm facts that may affect the criminal procedure, because then they accuse us of faults in due process and that we do not do."
It was evident, as it is now that the Agave Azul operation is failing, that the Attorney General of the Republic was referring to the acts of the Financial Intelligence Unit, whose actions, at least in the present case, are being suspended with suspensions and shelters.
On another occasion, at a discussion table with Aristegui Noticias , the Prosecutor Gertz Manero, referred to the FIU: “You tell me that an Intelligence Unit has no other functions than to obtain intelligence information, so why does it perform functions of authority and it freezes accounts and generates behaviors that the SCJN has already said are absolutely unconstitutional, you are talking about something that seems to be a schizophrenic contradiction”.
In the same program, the Attorney General of the Republic sentenced: “It is not about making media scandals. It is about giving legal results”.
And indeed, the Agave Azul operation, which was predicted by the media, is falling in court, due to the suspensions granted to the relatives of "El Mencho" and "El Cuini" to make use of the resources that were frozen, the same than other actors. And although the amparo has not been granted, the judges presume that the FIU and the Ministry of Finance, by not having the collaboration of the authority responsible and coordinating international agreements, the FGR, violated due process. Sure, until the federal government proves otherwise, then they can freeze them again.

The USCIS Notices Response Time is Still Extended

Current delays in immigration processes
Naturally, the global Coronavirus pandemic transformed multiple sectors of society as we know it and the way we relate to our environment.
It is well known that almost all countries around the world decided to close their borders for a considerable period of time to avoid the import and export of the virus. Therefore, the immigration sector has felt the strong impact of the pandemic.
Speaking specifically about the US, multiple emergency measures implemented during the health crisis directly affect the immigration sector.
Only taking into account that the offices of the US Citizenship and Immigration Services (USCIS) closed to the public for more than two months, we can conclude the magnitude of delays in immigration processes.
It is important to clarify that the USCIS is the federal entity, belonging to the Department of Homeland Security (DHS), that is in charge of receiving, reviewing and responding to the country’s immigration applications.
Therefore, due to the offices closure, immigration processes are currently behind schedule, which substantially lengthens the waiting time for applicants. In addition to that, the Trump administration also suspended multiple options that were available to foreigners before the health emergency caused by the Coronavirus pandemic.
Due to these drawbacks, the USCIS currently offers several alternatives, tools and possibilities that foreigners can use if they have a pending immigration case and need to present new documentation.
Do you need to submit an immigration application? Protect your future, Contact Motion Lawand follow the advice of our team of experts.

Now, you have more time to respond to USCIS notices

When the USCIS officials review an immigration application and determine that more information or evidence is needed but not serious enough to reject the application, the federal entity will send a notice to the applicant, asking for missing documentation to make a final decision.
These notices usually have an expiration date. By this, we mean that applicants must submit the required documentation during a specified period of time.
However, due to the global Coronavirus pandemic, the USCIS extended the response time for notices since May, 2020. Applicants have now 60 days after the deadline to submit documentation requested by the federal agency.
With this, the USCIS intends to alleviate the workload for its employees, as well as extend the deadline for applicants to properly organize the documentation.

Follow the advice of experts who are up to date with current immigration policies

There are multiple immigration processes that have changed during the health crisis. In addition to that, local law is quite robust when it comes to immigration protocols and requirements.
That is the reason why we recommend for you to seek reliable help and follow the advice of experts, who can help you to assertively choose the process that best suits your current immigration needs.
If you have any questions about an immigration issue or relating to a case you may have currently in progress, then please don’t hesitate to contact us for a FREE Phone Consultation with one of our expert immigration attorneys.
