2023.05.28 18:27 AndroidsHeart I feel GREAT after hiking....is there a way to get this same energy without a long hike?
So, I'm relatively new to hiking as a serious hobby.
My husband and I have been getting in shape and in the last few years we took up hiking. At this point we can handle more intermediate trails.
Anyway, after an intense hike, I feel GREAT. Like I have energy to burn (after a short rest period of course haha). I can go home and cook and clean and do chores for hours afterwards, I'm bouncing off the walls. The next day is much the same.
I'm generally a low energy person, both mentally and physically. I struggle with motivation among other things. But after long hikes this seems to all of a sudden not be a problem.
Is this normal and why does it happen? How can I create this same effect at home?
I walk a lot daily, like 7-10km minimum. Some days it's more. But I'm not finding I get the same effect from all the walking, why not? Some hikes are the same length, but I guess they are more of a work out? I don't know what it is.
I don't really like exercising other than walking or hiking (I like running but have terrible knees, so that's a no go). However, I have done martial arts extensively as well as dancing work outs, and neither of those produce the same effect for me. I do yard work, to the point of sweating and being way more sore the next day than I ever would be from hiking, but again, it doesn't produce the same effect either.
Anyway, has anyone else found anything outside of hiking that produces this same effect? I don't have the time to go hiking every day and I don't live close by any hiking areas so even the drive to a good hike takes time. Like I said, walking doesn't cut it for me. It helps for sure, but it's not the insane energy boosting effect.
I get tons of energy after hiking, how can I get this same energy boosting effect at home daily (or more often)? Long walks don't do it for me. Bad knees, can't run.

2023.05.28 18:25 Alternative-Spend272 Marta Kostjuk , Ukrainian tennis player , about the sport out of the politics , booing her at French Open , and Sobolenka who never personally said she is against war .
"I can't respect her ( Arina Sobolenka) choice to continue to go to Russia, train there, communicate with the Russian press. Not to take the family out of the aggressor countries, having sufficient financial capabilities for this. I would not be able to put up with myself when my country does this, and I stay there. Personally, for me, playing tennis is an opportunity to change something for the better. Sabalenka after this tournament can become the first number in such a popular short. Having such a large platform and such influence in the world, she refuses it. What kind of message is this for the world?
We are talking about the fact that people are killed, and we hear in return that it is necessary to leave sports out of politics. But when the war comes to your house, she doesn't choose whether you're an athlete or not. It's not politics! We all know how Russia and Belarus are fighting against Ukraine, how they shoot civilians, how they captivate civilians, steal things from homes, rape children, take them out of Ukraine. It's a genocide of the Ukrainian people, it's not politics. In general, I have no hatred for any of the players from the aggressor countries. I just don't respect them,"

2023.05.28 18:25 Rods123Brasil Use regex to select unknown number of words after keyword
Hello. I'm having a hard time trying to use regex to my use case. Can someone experienced point me in the right direction?
I have files in the following style:
``` Parameter A value1 value2 value3 Parameter B value1
Parameter C value1 value2 ```
All parameters have their respective associated values on the next line, and sometimes there's a blank line between a parameter's value and the next parameter. The thing is that the order of the parameters changes from file, and so does the number of associated values of a parameter.
What I want to achieve is to read all values of a given parameter at a time. Is this doable via regex?

2023.05.28 18:25 a_man_and_his_box [FO4] Trying to solve a mystery, not getting ammo from gun pickups, and there are no loose guns in the world.
So I read this post: /Fallout/comments/y0dmt8/a_hidden_mechanic_in_fo4_related_to_ammo/irsh739/
And the long reply that goes with it. And my problem is: none of it works.
The original guy saying you need to pick up the gun separately in order to get the clip worth of ammo -- nope, doesn't work for me. Importantly, I noticed it doesn't work because somehow in my game, there are no loose guns anymore. If anyone dies, their gun is melded to their hand, and cannot be manually picked up. No guns scattered on the ground after a fight. Instead, you have to go into the inventory menu for that body, and select the gun that way. And doing so does not give a clip's worth of bullets. It gives no bullets.
(To clarify, I can see the guns on the bodies, as I said the gun is held in the hand. However, it cannot be picked up or taken out of the hand, as it isn't loose on the ground like in my previous games. All guns are now "one with the corpse." The gun can still be taken by going to the body's inventory menu, but no ammo/clip comes with it.)
ALSO, the guy who replied to that post and said he tested it tons and works in various ways -- none
of those ways work for me. I have no way to get clips of ammo. What am I doing wrong? I test on both my survival mode game, and a hard mode game. Neither game works, even with different characters.
I have a short mod list:
*HUDFramework.esm *StorageBot.esl *SimSettlements.esm *SettlementTidyBot.esl *Settler Sandbox Overhaul.esl *Faster Terminal Displays (20x).esp *Journey.esp *QuickTrade.esp *BTA_ForceOpen.esp *Scrap annoying things.esp *HoloTime_2.esp *Fog Remover II (AIO) Recommended w Dust-Leaves-Debris.esp *Fog Remover II (AIO) - Interior Fog Remover.esp *Companion Fall Damage Immunity.esp *PiperCaitCurieDialogueOverhaul.esp *Use Console Commands in Survival.esp *3DNPC_FO4Settler.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6 DLC.esp *cVc Dead Wasteland 6 DLC2.esp *Quick Save.esp *FO4 NPCs Travel.esp *mso_sms.esp
Any ideas? What causes guns to meld to NPCs, and clips of ammo to be missing from guns when picked up? Thanks for any tips.

2023.05.28 18:25 Whole_Ad2270 I've had some bleeding/spotting two times this month now and I've never had that happen
So Apr 26 was my previous period so I expected to have my period on May 29 ish, which is soon. And I am having cramps rn and there is some bleeding so I think this rly is my period.
But my problem is, I've had spotting on May 12-15. And by spotting I thought it's just brown spotting but there's also some blood there and cramps. So I was like ok maybe my period is just really early this time? I've only had one short cycle before and it last 19days but I've never had two periods within the same month.
The last short cycle was last year on July. Idk why it was only 19 days when my cycle was usually 27-30 days. July was also the first time I had sex with my partner.
I don't want to go to the doctor cuz I went once because of some painful intercourse once, which was weird cuz my partner and I usually do it just fine even without lube (it usually doesnt hurt). So I dont want to go and just be told oh you're fine, It's nothing.
Im not taking any bcp cuz I dont like taking meds daily. I dont want IUD cuz i dont like getting things put in me and i can't visually see it, also needles creep me out. I also dont want the vaginal ring cuz no. I just dont like prescription meds.
And yeah ik my partner and I should use a condom (neither of us have tested positive for any STDs) but I dont like it cuz...it feels better without it ok? (My partner is even the one who asks me "u sure you dont want a condom" and I'm like nah throw it away...dont judge..) It's not like im forcing my partner to not wear condoms either cuz I've asked him if he does feel forced to not use condom but he said he also likes it. We wanna have kids but obv not rn cuz we're not that financially stable yet. So yeah just have to explain all that before anyone judges or asks those kinds of questions of why we arent using condoms or bcp.
The only "bcp" i take is plan B. I did try birth control before (vienva) but it made my period last rly long and I hated it. I'm not about to do that trial and test and get all kinds of prescription bcp out there.
Anyways, is the symptoms normal or should I rly go to the doc?

2023.05.28 18:24 Sad-Departure5072 I fear that my husband loves me platonically
tl;dr Hello, everyone! So my husband(M 27) and I(F27) have been married for 2 years now and have a one and a half year old. My husband cheated on me before we were married and I broke up with him until he came back in two months and I “forgave” him. I suddenly got pregnant and he immediately was happy and told me about how i’m his number one priority now etc. After we had our baby, I still couldn’t get over the cheating so I would bring it up in fights, and he would tell me that I have one free slip to cheat back.. And I never did. However those words really hurt me and he also seemed less caring at the time. He’s a great father, but right now he works 10 hours a day and also has time to work out, but never has time for me. I was okay with that until he also started kind of neglecting me on the weekends. I say kind of because on the surface we do go out, and go to a cafe or smth with our child of course, but he never tries to engage in a conversation with me nor does he look happy or even just in a good mood. He never brings me flowers, or does anything anything to spend time just us too. Whenever I offer to watch a movie he finds a reason not to and prefers to stay in the other room and do his thing. The bedroom is also much drier now( once in 2-3 weeks) I feel like after the whole cheating situation he doesn’t feel attracted to me. I also think he loves our child but loves me only as the mother of our baby. I talked to him about it and at one point he agreed to what i was saying.. I still love him and want to spend quality time together or have a conversation, but there’s just no reciprocation. Whenever the conversation gets to a point where I say I can’t be in a marriage like this he promises he’ll change but it’s the same, and he gets angry if I bring it up again as if I’m just looking for something to poke at.. (his words) He just seems like his head is somewhere else, and his body is here. Whenever I brought up the conversation about love languages he just said I just want two things from you:1. To look well after our baby 2. Understand my work things. 😂😂😭 He isn’t really concerned that I’m leaving to my birth country with our baby soon for a few months, and didn’t even ask when we will be back.. Has anyone gone through something similar on both sides and what is happening or what do you think we should do?

2023.05.28 18:24 Greedy_Classic_6659 **DCS MODS** NEED VOLUNTEERS for ALPHA/BETA TESTING/TRIALING of TWO (2) separate LUA-based weapon system projects ** - MIN. REQ. is just being able to fly a jet! read for more info!!!
Hello, my name is BPT
; I am an avid DCS
fan and a hobbyist programmer from Australia, and I am currently in the process of conceptualizing, coding and testing TWO shortlisted concepts that have advanced to the POCON
(proof of concept
) stage for implementation into DCS
and finally released as a publicly available mod. Their development is concurrent with each other. The pair, once complete, would introduce two completely new, unrelated technology systems, and and in this case, one is to do with target acquisition and guidance unlike anything currently found in-game, and the other is looking to implement a hybrid seeker-head not currently modelled in DCS
; both have been deemed conceptually possible based on evaluations of what LUA can do and experimental POCONs exist for both projects. (2) PURPOSE
This effort is meant to have a three-pronged effect: to create 2 mods that I want to use myself, to explore and evaluate the possibilities and/or limitations the LUA API within DCS
to see what is and isn't possible, and if it would be a good choice to use in other projects that haven't materialized beyond a concept yet, or don't exist in DCS
. Finally, to try and create a small collaboration / mod team that shares the same vision and with a group vision of bringing conceptional/unmodeled systems, behavior and functionality not currently available through DCS
or existing mods. Its nice when someone releases a new jet with a clickable, custom cockpit but they all tend to be the same thing: a usually-decent external model, complete with custom animations and sometimes new weapon models but under the surface, they are just a remodeled, reskinned F-15 with FC3 functionality, including the same simple fly model and the cockpit from the F-15. I want to start producing mods that could actually affect gameplay meta, create new options for mission designers, and I just love doing POCON; just proving something is possible is something I very much enjoy doing! (3) SUITABILITY EVALUATION
This will be a thorough evaluation and whether pressing ahead using LUA to advance more of my theory-only concepts into working models that can be implemented into DCS
, can be considered a feasible option. Hopefully revealed is whether or not a future project could be hindered by a LUA (or even DCS
) limitation when already 10's (or even 100's
) of hours have been invested into a project that is simply not possible to execute and destined to fail; its better to abandon these before you become too invested or waste too much time only to find out a technical limitation means its not something doable. (3) VOLUNTEERING
You don't need to be an "expert" to volunteer but being able to start, taxi, takeoff, fly and land the F-16 and/or FC3 aircraft (F-15 and Flanker, mostly) as well as use their weapons and avionics suite,
with even just a basic level of competence
would be the desired-but-not-required
expectation of a volunteer interested in involvement with these projects. Testing involving helicopters has been deemed unnecessary at this point so don't worry if you cant fly/don't own one.
Everyone is welcome to volunteer but failing to meet this basic criterion could impede on your ability to be a suitable and useful test pilot, or fill another role if required (WSO, RIO, etc.) as the knowledge on how to pilot would be preferred, even in those roles. Age doesn't matter as long as you act in a mature fashion during testing. Any other project-specific criteria desired/required by interested parties will be listed in the individual project comment thread.
- Also, for anyone interested in these projects but are unable/unwilling to participate during in-game tests, if you would regard yourself as highly knowledgeable about DCS and still wish to have involvement, your knowledge base, being technical or trivia, would be of great assistance to development too:
Please express your interest
- technical perspective (like understanding LUA or just general DCS modding; 'tinkerers' absolutely apply as even if your strength isn't writing new code, you can definitely contribute to any troubleshooting/debugging efforts - even if you no longer play the game!)
- excellent DCS-trivia-type knowledge (exactly which weapons are available on what plane by default, who has the 'strongest' radar, which aircraft can exceed Mach 2, etc etc. - you know the game like the back of your hand but you might not have any experience in coding or mod development)
as having a pool of players to make up the "think-tank
" of a project and also to fulfill the role of test pilots,
both groups required for operating, interacting with, testing, analyzing results and to be able to optimally tweak the systems based on code behavior and in-game feedback. Both projects are still within a brain-storming and input-friendly phase, both with working prototypes/POCON
s for each project so now is a good time to join the teams for these projects; you will have a large amount of noted input in how you would like the development process to operate and progress. I'm currently writing up briefs for the two projects and they will be posted in this thread, as two separate comments so please reply to the comment thread relevant to the project you are interested in volunteering for
- this isn't a hard and fast rule; I'm not going to ban you from participation if you express interest in the wrong place (hell, even PM me if you want!) but it does make it a lot easier for me to organize and manage. (4) PROJECTS
These two concepts - 'RAADAR-ECHO
' and 'RADIIHOTRADGS
' - were selected to advance to a project stage because they will rely heavily on DCS
's integration of LUA - and a wide
range of its capabilities - in order to achieve desired functionality and behavior as intended, so completion of these projects should offer significant insight into what LUA in DCS
can do. Without the utilization of LUA, neither of the two concepts mentioned here could be modeled in an even remotely possible sense; the required functionality is just too advanced and cant be done unless LUA is involved, and the decision to to see if DCS
's implementation of LUA could lend highly advanced behaviofunctionality to "new technology" mods was done for for three key reasons
to take advantage of a native DCS
"system" when compared to other approaches, is the most likely to be workable on a practical level and be able to produce the wanted results in something like an advanced weapon system mod, as opposed to using another "system", like the Mission Editor and trying to create the same thing using triggers: eventually you hit a technical limitation and your idea becomes "technically impossible"; hopefully the limitations of the LUA engine in DCS
don't preclude these two concepts from materializing into functional, publicly-available mods. The use of LUA is what provides access to enhanced capabilities and functionality to try and (re)create these systems and turn a proof of concept into a reality. Secondly,
these two projects were shortlisted from a long list of ideas on the backburner which are held back by standard technical limitations and would require a script-based system to function; these two concepts have been selected to advance to trial projects: they were chosen because they shouldn't be *too
* difficult to create, and across the two projects, there's a wide enough use of different functions used in different contexts to be able to gauge the practicality and suitability of using LUA to create more of the complex and novel systems I have planned in a conceptual stage, whilst producing two high quality mods that I believe people would want to use. Lastly,
if I want to (re)create or emulate something complicated enough that it cant be achieved in the Mission Editor or the like, LUA would be the only option I try as I don't want any mods created by me to require anything that isn't common to a standard DCS
mod: if any third-party addons/packages/HUDs/exe's are deemed to be required/necessary to bring a concept to life, it will be shelved in favor of one that doesn't, and until a new solution requiring nothing but DCS
makes itself known. (5) TO CONCLUDE
It may be upto 24-hours
before I am able to post the project briefs, as even though I am extremely busy for the next 20 or so hours then I'll have a good amount of downtime so based on that, I'm not going to rush writing them to keep them clear and concise to anyone who's interested in what they've read about here. Feel free to express your interest below as it gives me a good idea for numbers; please mention in your expression of interest if you have FC3 / F-16
or not - cheers!
I really hope their are some interested parties as this kind of development is slooooww
with only one person (me! lol) doing all the coding and all the testing/troubleshooting, and I'd love to get these finished, polished and released. Kind regards,

2023.05.28 18:24 Safe-Lab-6133 What should I do?
I'm (22F) living at home with my aunt (60F) and cousin (27M). My mom moved out with my new step dad a few months ago. Originally my mom asked me for $100 in rent every month which was no problem. After she moved out, she said that she was struggling with the house payments so I had to start paying $400 in rent. I also had to start paying for utilities, water, internet and TP split three ways with my aunt and cousin. I pay for my own groceries which is about $200 a month. This is about $1000 a month plus therapy and transportation and I was only making $1600 with my part time job.
I was three months away from my one year anniversary at my job when I was unexpectedly laid off. They wanted to add another paralegal to the firm and I was interested in the position but didn't have the certificate from college. I felt really upset about the job loss but it motivated me to go back to school full time because I really want to get a good job. My mom said it would be fine but that I still need to find ways to make money for bills which I understand.
I guess I am just wondering what I should do. The bills aren't changing even though I got laid off and I really want to be a full time student and have a college degree. Rent would be expensive anywhere else but I'm wondering if the other bills would be cheaper if I moved out. During the winter, if I used the heater for more than a few hours, my aunt would charge me an extra $100 so I stopped using it. I don't want to use the AC either because I know I will get charged extra too. There are other unfair and passive aggressive things that my aunt does too that bother me. I don't know who to ask because all of my friends have wealthy parents and receive financial help from them. They only have to pay rent and I am a little jealous.
Is there any way I can be a full time student? I'm worried that I'm going to have to go to school part time and not graduate until I'm 30 and be super behind because of all these bills.

2023.05.28 18:24 moookitty Physical symptoms of anxiety
So, I’ve become a regular on this subreddit and I know it’s probably not healthy to be seeking reassurance here but I feel like I’m driving myself crazy. I have been in a constant state of fight or flight for about a month. Some days are better than others but some are really, really bad. I’ve been feeling really tense in the upper part of my body like my chest, shoulders, ribcage and have been experiencing pain that can usually be massaged away. I am incredibly fatigued (probably also driven by the fact that I’m barely eating) and my legs feel so weak, almost numb especially after the comedown of a panic attack.
I’ve had a LOT of doctors appointments recently with a lot of blood tests and a few other things to rule out any heart issues. Naturally, at this point.. I should be able to accept that it’s just anxiety. My health anxiety is just so severe that I can’t. I am so convinced that I’m dying.
Does anyone else experience symptoms like this? Tightness in muscles, weak limbs, extreme fatigue?

2023.05.28 18:23 standardissuegreen Did Kobalt redesign their 40v batteries? A new battery won't work in my old mower.
Searched all over and can't find any other post (or any other website) concerning this issue. That can't be the case, as I'm sure others have run across it.
I have an older Kobalt KM-1940 40v mower. My lawn is small, it works great, and I can normally mow it all with just a single charge on a 2.5 ah battery. The 2.5 ah battery I have been using for the last few years is a replacement one I bought at Lowe's.
Wanted a new 4.0 ah battery. Instead of buying just the battery, I bought a weed trimmer that includes the 4.0 ah battery for not much more money.
Tried to put the new 4.0 ah battery in my older lawnmower and it will not run. After looking at it more, the new battery clicks when I push it in, but the springs inside the mower then push it back out just enough so that the battery does not make sufficient contact with the mower's battery connections.
Pulled the battery out and looked at the newer and older side-by-side. Here is a photo: https://i.imgur.com/MNfn3kK.jpg
New battery is on top, older on bottom. The vertical ridge about 1/3 from the right of the batteries is the catch that the bracket will grab onto to hold the battery in the mower.
You can see on the older battery where that catch is closer to the right than on the newer battery. Thus, on the older battery, the catch/bracket combination hold it further into the mower, allowing the battery to make a connection.
Anyway, it's pretty clear the batteries were redesigned. I guess I may just return the new weed trimmer and buy a Milwaukee, as I've got a ton of Milwaukee batteries. The last thing I want is to have multiple similar versions of a Kobalt battery.
Anyone else have this problem? My guess is it may have been a "big deal" a few years ago, but my lawn is so small my lawn tools last a lot longer and I'm slow to the issue.

2023.05.28 18:22 Low-Finance5733 My young husband is impotent and I’m willing to stay with him but need some tips on how to feel sexy while being married to a man who isn’t good in bed f (27) m (25)
My husband and I met in college and sex for us was great, not amazing but consistent and fun. he couldn’t finish always in the first round and often went soft but he’d eventually get there and I didn’t mind. Flash forward to getting married and some stressful situations we started only having sex once a month and he lasts for MAYBE a minute. It’s lead to me losing my self confidence especially because I’m very accepting and just asks that he’s uses toys or his fingers to make sure I can tell that he’s attracted to me but he is very passive and doesn’t put in the effort I think he should considering he’s aware of his ED and was before we met but never told me. I love him and understand how embarrassing this can be but having to beg him to show more interest now that I’ve accepted his thing isn’t working correctly is frustrating and it has led to me daydreaming about other men. Just because I’ve been so understanding and I just think it’s weird to tell me you have desire but just can’t work down there and I’m telling you it’s okay and to please just do more foreplay…
It’s been 2 years straight of saying he’s trying and not much excitement to try new things so it makes me a bit sad and feeling like he just will never be on a level that I deserve/want. If I’m taking the sacrifice of being with an impotent man and im kind about it outside and of just asking for more .. I think the least he could do is accept that im okay with toys and try …
I love this man in every way but the lack of sex has made me complacent and sad . Im so hyper sexual and it’s ruining my self esteem . I think about cheating , but I don’t wanna be the one to do that to my marriage. Does anyone have some tips on how I can suffice my sexual urges without cheating ? I know I can use toys on myself but im considering starting an only fans or something where I can connect with others sexually online . I’m young and we don’t have kids so it’s sad accepting that this will be my sex life but I love every other part of him.. but I’m such a sexual person and so young I miss physical connection. Any advice?

2023.05.28 18:22 Littlejon598 I feel like i freely drop energy
Hey so my issue is I can make energy balls (chi, ki , ci )and I can control them but at the same time I also always feel like I’m loosing energy , I can make powerful balls of energy and they create a really hot burning or really cold ice feeling between my hands or hand if I do single handed I can control what to do with it and everything but what can I do that won’t keep me from loosing power or energy when I am not trying to expend energy or power. I’m not a newbie , I can do lots with my power and mostly practice in Latin though I don’t know Latin. as Latin I believe is more powerful being the root of almost all languages I do my best and wear an amulet to absorb energy I lose but it only does so much I regularly empty my energy into my amulets to store for later use if needed and wear my amulets all the time . The other thing I would say is I feel more powerful when I use cannabis (I’m a medical user) and I am also on lots more meds does anyone have any ideas I am a Wiccan who is also Catholic

2023.05.28 18:22 Silver_Class_3384 I ignored the mental health policy to "protect" my student
(Throwaway account). I (32F) have been a teacher at my current high school for nearly 8 years now, and I have never done something like this before. The high school I teach at has a mental health policy that I have never agreed with.
The policy states that if I feel a child is in a bad state of mental health, I have to report them to a counsellor. But here's where it gets worse: All the counsellor does is call in the child and their parents for a meeting, where the counsellor makes the child talk about anything/everything bothering them.
It doesn't sound bad, but as a kid who grew up with major issues with my parents, if I was going through a tough time - it was because of my parents, and things would only get worse for me if they had found out.
Recently, I ignored this policy. Because I saw a kid, who reminded me exactly of myself when I was younger. I heard her (15F) silently crying in a bathroom stall. I locked the bathroom door to make sure no other student walked in and sat there for 45 minutes convincing her to come out.
She kept insisting she was fine, but I could hear her crying and sniffling through our entire conversation. Eventually, she came out, and after another 45 minutes I got her to tell me why she was crying. She said, and I quote,
"My mom is just so mean. It's like she hates me for being born. I wish I wasn’t. I'm always such a nuisance."
It was like I was looking in a mirror at younger me. This was exactly how I had felt, I asked her if she wanted to speak to the counsellor, and then she gave me that look. This girl was absolutely terrified, she started breathing hard and backed away from me, she begged me not to tell the counsellor.
"No, please. It's fine, I'm fine. I'm just being dramatic. Don't tell the counsellor, my mom will kill me." was what she told me.
For the first time, I honestly felt like considering breaking school-wide policy for this little girl. I promised her I wouldn't tell anyone (which, in hindsight, I understand may not have been a smart idea) but I made her promise me that she would come talk to me whenever things felt bad.
I gave her the phone number of an old friend of mine (she's a therapist who has agreed to speak with her) and told her she could call up said therapist as well as me.
Recently though, I've been feeling bad about my decision. I know this puts my teaching career on the line, I know I could be immediately blamed if things went south. But I couldn’t bare to betray her trust like that. That look in her eyes was way too powerful, and she was way too scared of her mother finding out.

2023.05.28 18:22 lickety-split1800 Looking for ways to build sign up platform.
I've been looking for boilerplate to create a sign up platform. My wishlist would be something with
- OAuth/OpenID connect
- Bootstrap/React boilerplate/templates.
- MySQL DB.
- Go backend obviously.
Does such a thing exists or do I have to create it from scratch?

2023.05.28 18:22 Potential-Mobile-567 Epiduo: 4 month review
Getting a better skin was my new year's resolution, and I started using epiduo (on prescription) from Jan 10th. And honestly, it made my skin look much dull n miserable for the first few weeks. I started having doubts but my dermatologist told me to stick to it. There were times when I felt really embarrassed to go out in public with severe purging and redness at its peak (I have relatively dark skin, but still the redness was clearly visible). The only thing that still made me hopeful was the reviews posted by many other great people here on this sub.
Fast forward to 4 months, my skin is much more clearer and smoother than before. I still have scars, but much lighter than before, hopefully they'll fade away in a few months too. As someone who was going to mental health issues, the first two months were really severe for me, but now I feel much more confident and comfortable. Thanks to all the amazing people whose reviews assured my to keep faith. I hope my review will help others who are also on this rewarding journey! As for my routine, I just washed my face twice a day (morning n before sleep). After shower, I applied moisturizer n sunscreen DAILY, and applied epiduo before going to bed. It doesn't seem much of an effort so I didn't quite believe in it, but these small efforts stacked up during these 4 months to give me a much better skin. I'm planning to continue this routine but please also suggest any tips you guys have that I could add to make it more efficient!
(Really wish I had taken pictures for comparison)

2023.05.28 18:21 bainrow0 Russian Language News Channel in Latvia fostering anti-Latvian sentiment.
| || |
Hello, I have encountered this russian speaking news channel from Latvia that does everything in their power to promote the anti-Latvian sentiment. submitted by bainrow0 to latvia [link] [comments]
(Im writing in English because I have been living in Latvia for a few years and don't have fluent skills in Latvian yet.)
Point 1: They publish news with fake information about prices of living in Latvia and comparing them to ones from other countries, without cicting sources, and the numbers being wrong in the first place (I love in Latvia and I have eyes, I can see that the information is wrong)
Point 2: They delete comments that call them out, dissagree with them, or ask them for sources. (I had my comments deleted countless times for those reasons, and even tried writing a comment from a different account, that one also got deleted. Their comment section is filled with Russian speakers shitting on Latvia, even with swear words and insults, even some going as far as saying that they can't wait for Russia to come and show Latvia who is in charge (tipical vatnik stuff).
Point 3: They go out of their way to cover news that aren't even important, but specifically show Latvia in a bad light, for example: some medical device broke again in some hospital (you can see this one in the picture). At the same time covering positive news rarely, or only big ones, such as the Hockey win today.
Point 4: When talking about the president candidates, only focuses on the fact that Rinkēvič is gay, nothing about his personal accomplishments or anything else, minimizes him to his orientation (obviously to cater to vatniks)
If I am wrong about some things, the things you can clearly see is the presence of an overwhelming amount of vatnik comments, and you could test the comment deletion yourself too I guess.
I really wish someone would investigate the financial background of the people running and owning this news channel to see if they have ulterior motives.
I understand Russian almost fluently, but its not my first language.
2023.05.28 18:21 Spired_Microbe Advice?
Okay, so this is a new account because my other account could be used to identify me. That being said, I am really struggling with my current job and I don't know what to do anymore.
I have a bachelor's degree (Psychology) that got me a job in community mental health in 2021 - found out pretty quickly I wasn't cut out for that and left. I now have an entry-level role in HR at a major corporation (1.5 years so far) and I am struggling every single day. I enjoy the good days, but they are so few and far between that most days I can't even get to work without a pit in my stomach. I'm overcome with anxiety constantly to the point that I'm exhausted when I leave, and go to bed early because I can't even function once I get home. I have a handful of active applications and have gotten some interviews, but no offers yet and the market for HR is not so great in general right now (including where I live, Midwest).
I'm the only HR support role on the shift that I work, for an upwards of 400+ employees at any given time. We have fairly frequent Employee Relations escalations and these conversations can be extremely draining at times.
My manager has an extremely volatile personality, to the point that we never know how they are going to respond, and they have to have the final say in any actions that take place. It has made our workplace very stressful and we experience /significant/ turnover in my department as a result. To add to this, everyone on my team owns a different process, so that if anyone is out, their workload does not get distributed and nobody feels like they can take time away (no proxies) - taking time away essentially just sets ourselves up for failure.
Manager has explicitly stated no handoffs or training for anyone other than the owner of said function. We have infrequent conversations regarding my performance and they go both ways (positive and negative). I am in line for promotion roughly sometime in July, but I struggle with prioritization and keeping track of things sometimes, so we've also had not so good conversations as well (at one point in time being told explicitly if I "don't start taking notes, things will not go well for you" which I took as a veiled threat and not a word of advice).
I'm essentially the sole provider for my family (wife and daughter), and we live paycheck to paycheck so I absolutely need something lined up. My concerns are the training I have gotten and am getting at my current employer is very narrow and not traditionally applicable to general HR work from what I can tell, but I think I would like to continue working in HR roles moving forward. Does anyone have any advice on what I should do? I don't mean to ramble, but I've got a lot on my plate and just needed somewhere to air some stuff.
- Toxic workplace
- Toxic manager
- Unideal opportunities in current market vs. what level of income I need to continue having a home
- Imposter syndrome
- Would like a less customer-facing role (Comp and benefits maybe, but not getting any luck due to no payroll experience)
- Struggle with abstract and gray areas, so probably no Business Partnestrategic roles.
- Am I even a good fit for HR? I guess I'm the only one that can decide that, but yeah.
Just looking for any guidance, input, advice. Anything. I feel panicked and like I've hit a brick wall. I'm tired of being in fight or flight 24 hours a day. I don't know what to do anymore. I feel lazy, unmotivated, anxious, depressed, lost. Sorry, so much to unpack.
Thanks for reading.

2023.05.28 18:20 ResponsiblePause8838 Acrylic paint to craft paint
Hi- I’ve googled the heck out of this question and I’m not getting results. I hope I’m asking this in the right group. If not- don’t yell at me too much- I’m fragile
I have a huge set of acrylic artists paint in tubes (Artist’s Loft brand, if that makes a difference). I make wood crafts to sell, and my husband paints them. I bought the paint along with a big bottle of pouring medium thinking I would thin it out to be more like acrylic craft paint, but richer. I didn’t know “pouring paint art” was a thing and just thought “pouring medium” meant it would thin it out.
Anyway, my husband picked up a couple bottles of Folk Art craft paint and insists it’s better to paint with and leaves no brush strokes. He wants to buy a ton of craft paint now. He says mixing the artist paint with the pouring medium in small amounts isn’t giving consistent results. I don’t want these artist’s acrylic tubes to go to waste.
So my question is- If I buy squeeze bottles and squeeze the tubes into these bottles, and fill halfway water (or maybe pouring medium?) to have them ready to go and consistent in color, does that make craft paint?

2023.05.28 18:20 UpperGoose9002 Hired a contractor w/ no contract (family friend), and we think we're getting ripped off
We just started a massive remodeling project for our two-story townhome (part of an association) under the guidance of a family friend.
Basically, we totally remodeled the kitchen (totally gutted, brand new appliances, even taking out a part of the counter), changed the carpet flooring to vinyl, and remodel of one bathroom.
We didn't force a contract due to that relationship and are now starting to regret it. Here's why:
- The workers have damaged some furniture (very unprofessional)
- The family friend is asking for large checks every few weeks, we have no real idea where this money is going to (he said it's for "labor costs")
- Home was built in 1975 and we have popcorn ceilings. We tested the home when we bought it and it was negative for asbestos, but upon checking on the progress, we see that the entire place is covered in dust (workers have been sweeping it, but we're worried that maybe other layers of the paint were not tested for when we first bought the place. I doubt the family friend tested for it, but we may have to ask him for an asbestos report, there are still things in the home that we need to get, and we don't want to expose ourselves in the worst case). We've gone inside the home twice since the popcorn ceiling removal and the dust is almost unbearable, so really worried about a potential exposure.
- Family friend gave us measurements for major appliances, we bought them, and they didn't fit, but he didn't tell us until well after the 48 hour return policy for Home Depot and Lowe's, so I had to do some major damage control for this.
I want to ask this subreddit for advice. At this point, we're very unhappy with how this is going, but we're scared of stopping everything because it's in the middle of the remodel. We were going to have him do the upper floor too, but so far he's only done the lower floor. He keeps upping the cost estimate as well (don't want to go into specifics, but it's a lot).
Does anyone know how we can do damage control? Any tips on getting out of this mess?
