2023.03.29 11:02 mominkhayam Penalty for Red Light Crossing at Roundabout Sharjah

Hello everyone,
I have a question. On Friday, I was driving through Al Wasit Square roundabout at Sharjah and speeded up when the green light was still blinking. It was the roundabout with traffic signal. Therefore, I am anxious if I had crossed at yellow light while my rear wheels being behind the stop line, but I am really not sure. However, there was a camera too at that signal.
My question is that the penalty for crossing red light at the roundabout and any Emirate considered the same as crossing red light at an intersection or the penalties vary for roundabout red light and intersection red light?
I would appreciate your response.
Thanks.

Hi!
Today is the third and final article of content with a car🚗🚗🚗
(At least for now)
https://preview.redd.it/kriqfcwdpmqa1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=7c97a3431364a0c30d20825b116b4a3e9dddb458

In the last two posts, we talked about what content can be shot on the outside of the car. Now it's time to shoot the inside, you can find them a bit down in the feed👇

First of all, of course, you can just take lots of nude photos inside the car📸
You can also shoot masturbation in the car. Place the camera on the side of the seat, or right in front of it, and take a picture of you fondling yourself with a toy or your fingers.

A great idea, by the way, to sit in the back seat of the car, and put a friend or girlfriend behind the wheel. And film you masturbating as if unnoticed by the driver 🤳
Play it off as if you were doing it as a passenger in a cab and want to please yourself during the ride. The main thing is that the driver should not be in the frame. It's best to put the camera between the front seats, so that it only captures what's going on behind. Try to make it look like it was not all a set-up

Another interesting scenario is the Lovense Lush ride
There's a lot of room for creativity. You can either drive the car or be the driver. Just be careful that it doesn't cause an accident! And it's also important that viewers understand that you're using the Lovense Lush and what kind of power it's on.

2023.03.29 07:39 CostcoSeaSalt Bringing film camera over border on Amtrak

Hello, going to Vancouver tomorrow on Amtrak from Seattle (first time taking Amtrak). I am considering bringing a film camera and finishing off the roll I have in the camera. However film gets screwed up when X rayed. Are there x ray machines when you cross the border? If so is there any way they can somehow not x ray the film camera. Thanks!

2023.03.29 05:08 colinjcole Seeking not-legal-advice for a speeding ticket in Seattle, WA

Hi folks,
My options (other than accepting the ticket) are to contest or mitigate the infraction. I fully understand the difference between the two. The ticket is $237 from a "speeding camera" in a school zone. Ticket says I was doing 36 in a "speed limit 20 when flashing," and images of my car driving by show the lights were flashing. Relevant ordinance number is SMC 11.52.100.
Here's the rub, though: my citation timestamps the alleged-occurrence of my infraction (hi throw040913) at exactly 2:15pm... which also just so happens to be the exact minute those lights start flashing. The lights weren't actually flashing as I initially approached the sign.
Moreover, I just went through Google Maps and checked: from the freeway offramp I took up all the way until the "20 when flashing" sign, which is half a mile, there are no other posted speed limits of any kind. Is the "normal" speed on that street 25, 30, or 35? There's no way to tell if you took the route I took.
I think the facts are reasonable enough here that if I request a mitigation hearing, a judge will agree there were some mitigating circumstances around my case... and then they'll proceed to knock effectively nothing off my fine, maybe down to $200, and I'll be in effectively the same crappy situation I'm in now. It'll still be too much, not to mention significantly more than I would like to pay for something that genuinely doesn't feel like my fault or something even avoidable without me having foreknowledge about the time schedule for school zones (sidenote: i love how fines like this are completely regressive and have disproportionate impacts on working people and effectively no impact on wealthy folks 🙄).
I'd much rather contest the ticket and get the whole thing thrown out... but I am reasonably confident that if I do that, they'll just say "you just gave us a bunch of reasons to explain why you committed the infraction, but that doesn't mean you didn't do it. you DID commit the infraction, see this video? It shows you committing the infraction. Your request to dismiss the ticket is denied. Now pay up."
My question is: is there any good faith argument I can make to support the claim "I did not commit the infraction" that I'm not thinking of, or are my instincts right and my only real choice is to mitigate and hope for a merciful judge?

2023.03.29 05:00 Zinrockin Seattle Traffic Enforcement Department under the City of Seattle

So it's clear that in no time in the near future will the Seattle Police be at a sufficient enough staffing level to conduct wide-spread enforcement of traffic laws in the City of Seattle. Given this huge void of traffic law enforcement that has been left by their absence I think it'd be great if the city started considering making it's own traffic law enforcement department.
The City of Seattle should establish a traffic enforcement department staffed with trained individuals who will be present in our communities pulling people over, educating them on traffic laws, issuing warnings with that educational discussion, and if they are repeatedly being reckless issuing them tickets in the future.
They could have unique traffic enforcement vehicles that would pull people over for traffic offenses and if they decided to just drive off they could have a dash cam and a camera designed to capture the vehicle's plate which could then be used to send a traffic ticket to the registered vehicle owner with a website link to the encounter recording.
There is an epidemic of reckless drivers endangering travelers that use the roadways in the City of Seattle and doing nothing about that is not a solution to that problem. People who endanger pedestrians and other motorists in our communities need to be held accountable and face repercussions for their actions. If the Seattle Police Department cannot do it some other entity under the City of Seattle needs to be established to step in and keep our communities safe.
Something needs to be done and doing nothing to effectively combat the issue should not a valid response. If the Seattle Police Department needs to have a dedicated amount provided by the City of Seattle to a Traffic Enforcement team of officers which operates separately like the Parking Enforcement team does then that should be looked into. There's enough intelligent people living here in this city for us to come up with an effective solution which makes our roads safer. Please reach out to your elected officials and others who can make a difference and share your ideas with them. If enough of us do it then something will happen.
Because as they say the squeaky wheel gets the grease.
Edited to remove an extra sentence that I accidentally left in while editing.

2023.03.29 04:40 scooterflaneuse 114th Precinct March Community Council Meeting Highlights: an army of pedestrian advocates and a couple of old guys complaining about those pesky kids jaywalking

The president of the community council, Ann Bruno, opened the meeting with what seems to be her usual rituals. She asked us all to stand and say the Pledge of Allegiance, said it was nice to see people in person and not in Zoom windows, and said Deputy Inspector Kenneth Gorman (commander of the 114th precinct) was “the best.” Last time she opened the meeting in almost exactly the same way. Next up was the recognition of the “Cops of the Month” (yes, this is really the title of the award) for February: two partners who got the award, not for any one incident, but for a “plethora” of “police work” (Gorman’s words, which I think means nobody did anything exceptionally heroic this month).
Gorman gave his rundown of crime: crime is down 6% overall, according to him, and down in every crime category, except rape (up by 1 rape) and grand larcenies (up by 8). He said the grand larcenies were mostly scams (same as last month).
And….that was it! Almost. Gorman apparently asked if there were questions at this point, but people either didn’t hear or assumed that Gorman was only asking for questions about the grand larcenies, because no one raised their hand. Ann Bruno was about to wrap up the meeting when u/Miser realized what was going on and immediately jumped up with a question. Gorman trudged back to the podium after he’d believed he was home free.
u/Miser asked what Gorman thought the 114th Precinct had done over the past month to be a better “Vision Zero” partner. Gorman appeared unsure of what u/Miser meant. u/Miser sought to clarify that Gorman knew what he meant by “Vision Zero partner”, and Gorman said he absolutely did. u/Miser then rephrased and asked what specific things the precinct had done in the last month to keep pedestrians and others on the street safe. Gorman said that overall traffic injuries were down since last month by ten incidents, but that there was a slight increase in pedestrian injuries specifically. He also talked about enforcement and said that in the last month, the precinct had issued 450 parking summonses, almost 600 moving violations, and done an “operation” on illegal parking on 21st St yielding 50 parking tickets issued to commercial vehicles.
Once u/Miser asked that question, several other people took the ball and ran with it. The conversation was almost entirely dominated with pro-pedestrian safe-streets advocates. Some highlights:
· A woman in a blue shirt asked where she could report it if there was a particular intersection where drivers were constantly running red lights/stop signs, and asked for specific email addresses/portals. An officer provided an email address to report intersections: [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]).
· A man in a burgundy shirt said he feels safe in Astoria except when crossing the street. He has 2 kids and almost gets hit once a week. He said focusing on specific hot spot intersections wasn’t enough and we had to change overall attitudes of drivers, perhaps through more enforcement. Gorman gave his usual spiel about how cops can’t be everywhere.
· u/Miser said that the whole point of deterrence was so that cops didn’t *have* to be everywhere, because drivers would fear consequences if they drove dangerously. Gorman had a pretty good rhetorical jiu-jitsu at this point: he said, correctly, that it wasn’t his job to instill fear. He also pointed to the number of summonses issued as proof of enforcement. u/Miser said he understood that but deterrence was part of the job, and it seemed obvious that drivers in Astoria feel they can drive as fast as they want, run red lights, and park wherever they want, with no consequences.
· A woman in a leather jacket spoke up to say she almost got killed recently while crossing the street with her dog. She asked the NYPD to point out problem intersections so we could all email DOT to ask for improvements. Gorman agreed, said we could start at the intersection of Hoyt and 31st, and said he would provide numbers.
· An elderly man, who later was revealed to be the president of the Italian-American Federation, declared that pedestrian injuries aren’t always the driver’s fault, because the other day a young kid jumped right in front of his car, and the kid’s mom just laughed. He said all this in THE most classic New York Italian-American accent—it was the best thing about his comment.
· A man in a Tommy Hilfiger jacket noted that he could find crime statistics online through the NYPD website, but moving violations seemed to disappear from month to month. He asked if there was a place he could look for previous months’ violations. He also noted that a large percentage of all the moving violations in February were for tinted windows, and asked why that was a priority. Gorman said he would have to “look into” providing this “historical” data. Gorman also claimed that the tinted windows were a pedestrian safety issue as well as an officer safety issue: he said it’s hard for the driver to see out of tinted windows and therefore won’t see pedestrians. Hilfiger also asked further pointed questions about data.
· A man in a gray jacket said he was a stay-at-home dad, echoed the concerns of Burgundy Shirt, and said the Hoyt/31st intersection was especially dangerous. He said he sees cars running the light there once a day, not just once a week. He asked the precinct to instill respect, if not fear, with enforcement, because this is a serious danger to kids. Gorman said he put officers near that intersection and could get a speed camera but only through DOT, and NYPD could ask for that, but so could citizens.
· A woman asked about enforcing the busway on 21st St. Gorman essentially blamed the redesign of 21st St because it took away a lane and added a busway. He claimed this increased traffic and was bad for cars and (somehow) for pedestrians (it’s not, I cross that street every day and the redesign makes it infinitely better).
· Finally, an elderly man asked where he could look up how many pedestrians got summonses for jaywalking. I think he thought this was a stinging rebuttal to everything everyone else had said.
Unlike last month, the tone of almost all the comments was pro-safe streets. Already, the collective advocacy and voice of everyone involved is having an impact on the culture of these meetings.

2023.03.29 02:42 misteredjohnson Miami is beautiful and a complete mess

The traffic is the worst. Worse than Chicago, LA, SF, San Jose, DC, Portland, Seattle, and NY. So aggressive it is beyond absurd. The I95 is the worst highway of any major city…worse than any NYC highway. People drive too fast here. No police. Today, a Lambo passed me at 60mph in the emergency lane…WTF?
Mosquitoes are a major problem. Let’s say you want to go to Crandon Park. You have to cross a green pasture to get from the parking lot to the beach. During that crossing you are eaten alive by mosquitoes. Wear lots of repellent!!!
We are at the beginning of spring in the heat is already unbearable. This is going to be a very hot Summer!!
Too many people, the infrastructure cannot support the influx, housing is beyond expensive, Publix is now more expensive than Whole Foods, and those making a median income of $55k a year are barely surviving.
Floods, hurricanes, homeowners and auto insurance rates are sky high…my auto insurance went up $800 a year, nothing changed.
Corrupt realtors, tenants have no rights, conservative asshole ruining the state. People think they are outlaws here and they support the most fascist of governments. Oh the irony!!
The poorer get poorer yet many poor sit on valuable land. As the poor get poorer, it will be easier to declare their homes as “slums” that require clearance. The higher the elevation, the more likely slum clearance will start to occur. And $700k condos appear in less than a year.
Hey, the beaches are nice!

2023.03.29 01:59 c_o_n_a_r_t Help reunite a lost tape with its family!

UPDATE: Folks have pointed out that at least some images to go off of would be helpful, so I’m linking a few in this Imgur album.
I’ll be receiving equipment tomorrow that’ll help me digitize the footage. Hopefully that can provide some better screenshots.
I recently bought an old Mini-DV camera at the Redmond Goodwill and finally got a new battery for it yesterday. To my surprise, there was a tape already inside, so I decided out of curiosity to check for existing footage. The tape was completely filled with footage from a family’s Christmas mornings! I assume they gave away the camera without knowing there was a tape still inside, or perhaps they couldn’t remove the tape because the camera has to be turned on to eject it and—as previously alluded to—the battery was out of juice.
I’m hoping that, with enough of us working together, we can reunite this lost tape with its owners. To maintain the family’s privacy, I’ll only provide a few details. I haven’t seen much of the tape myself—again, wanna maintain privacy—but I think I have enough for someone familiar with the footage to go off of. Key details are bolded:
  • The tape is completely full, with footage lasting about 62 minutes total.
  • Footage can be split into two halves: Christmas 2006 and Christmas 2007. There might be multiple clips therein, but I know for sure this footage takes place on those two days.
  • At one point during the Christmas 2006 footage, a dog with brown fur passes in-frame. I managed to catch this little detail while rewinding the tape.
  • From what I could tell while rewinding the tape, the footage is pretty much entirely kids unwrapping presents, as one might expect.
I’m posting this to as many Seattle-area subreddits and online communities as possible for exposure. I only bought the camera a few months ago and have to believe the owner is either nearby in the greater Seattle area or recently moved. In the meantime, I’m going to look for a good container for the tape so the footage stays preserved.
If anyone thinks they know the family in question, please don’t hesitate to DM me. I’ll ask for one or two omitted details for confirmation and can schedule a meetup afterwards for handing off the tape!
Thanks everyone for any help you can provide!

2023.03.28 22:34 WDFKY Hmm. Lexington traffic is bad? I wonder why.

https://www.wkyt.com/2023/03/27/lexington-has-worst-traffic-kentucky-study-says/
/venting on
Here's my hypothesis as to why Lexington's traffic is so congested, and it has nothing to do with the hub-and-spoke layout of the major thoroughfares with New Circle and Man o' War.
Several years ago, the head of traffic management in Lexington was quoted in the Herald-Leader as saying, "Red lights are there to slow you down." I thought, "WTF?!" To the contrary, I believe reasonable citizens and traffic engineers would say that red lights are there to regulate and promote the safe and efficient flow of traffic. Apparently, that guy left the city some years ago, but has a consulting company that the city, I would bet, is still listening to on traffic engineering matters. While I have heard of some places timing lights to encourage a certain speed for the flow of traffic, that's not what we have here in Lexington; in fact, that would be an improvement, given the high incidence of multiple, successive red lights that we encounter regularly.
Adopting the strategy that red lights are supposed to act like speed bumps gets you what I experience every morning when I take my daughters to school - *toward* downtown from outside New Circle, in the direction of traffic that should be favored during morning rush hour - five (5) red lights in a row if you don't make it past the "domino" light at Fontaine: Fontaine, St. Margaret, Chinoe, Ashland, and Walton. It's not the volume of traffic causing the hold up, it's the timing of the lights, and this is but one example. (Ironically, if one happens to encounter the conditions that would be conducive to exceeding the speed limit down that corridor, one might find that he or she will avoid all five lights altogether; and that's not the only example.) Man o' War traffic around Hamburg is like a spastic colon, and the stretch of Nicholasville Road in front of Fayette Mall is a cluster**ck anytime during the day, and has been for years, even when it's not the Christmas shopping season. Main Street is no picnic, and High Street past Rose/Elm Tree has been horrendous lately - one light turns green just as the next light turns red so, naturally, traffic backs up. I mean, how can you get a one-way street wrong?!
Of course, like anywhere nowadays, you have the compounding factor of a growing number of drivers more interested in interacting with their phones than paying attention to the traffic light changes - especially egregious in left-turn lanes - and you get what I call "gaps" that reduce the number of cars that could otherwise have gotten through the intersection on green. My kids hear me say, "Gap...gap...gap" as I see the cars ahead of us leave two or three car-lengths' space in front of them before making their left turn; then in the style of Edna Mode from The Incredibles, "NO GAPS!"
Now there's been talk of putting in place automated red-light cameras to ticket drivers. To me, given the current programming of the traffic signaling system, that would amount to entrapment. What Lexington's traffic engineering folks seem to ignore is that there's a frustration level that keeps rising with every successive red light and every foiled intersection transit (because of the aforementioned "gap" occurrences, or intersection blockages), rising to the point that there surfaces a totally understandable sense of entitlement to get through that next intersection unimpeded by the senseless programming of the system. You see that in instances where two or three cars continue through the intersection well into a red, or where intersections get blocked by the cars that tried to get through before *and* after the light turned red and the signaling of the subsequent light is so ill-timed as to ensure the back-up (I'm looking at you, Nicholasville at Reynolds). The recent new ordinance prohibiting blocking intersections is pretty tone-deaf in regard to this latter situation, since it is the traffic signaling system's deficiency that is underlying the increasing tendency for the intersections to get blocked in the first place. I wonder sometimes whether traffic management leadership even drives around during the day to see how well (not) things work, or, if they do, whether they think they're doing a bang-up job.
Rush hour isn't the only problem. Off-peak and weekend signal timing seems to assume that no one is on the road. Lexington is now of a size that there will be moderate traffic during daylight hours no matter that day of the week. Signal programming needs to recognize that fact, as well as the fact that an increase in the volume of traffic itself has the effect of reducing the overall speed of traffic.
With the above article providing some objective proof of a traffic signaling system running at a deficit of efficiency, perhaps the city will take steps to improve this thing that affects pretty much everybody everyday. One can only hope.
As a side note, but very much related: I'd also like to see Lexington explore converting a large number of three- and four-way-stop intersections, and even some signaled intersections, to roundabouts a la Carmel, Indiana:
https://www.cbsnews.com/news/roundabouts-traffic-safety-environment-carmel-indiana/
In my experience 85%+ drivers treat stop-sign intersections like roundabouts anyway (even Metro; got it on my dashcam).

2023.03.28 21:37 iclutchn My Thoughts for TLOU Season 2. How I think it should play out

DISCLAIMER THIS IS A CONCEPT STORY I CREATED FOR DISCUSSION. NOT STAYING ALIGNED WITH THE SOURCE MATERIAL.

-The approach of killing Joel was done poorly and could've been executed better. In the game the way he trusted Abby and his willingness to go to the hideout with tommy was out of character. Joel is a hardened survivor, its a common theme throughout the game and the show. How Ellie asks him questions about how he has killed people and tommy even having "nightmares" from what they had to do to survive. How even in the game and the show he has the ability to spot an ambush from a group of guys because he has literally done the same for supplies/ gea food. Thats much more to go on about especially with work at the Fedra Base for ration cards and dealing pills. I say all that to make my point of Joel walking in on that didn't make too much sense but Tommy willingness to trust Abby and her folks is different due to him also being responsible for his folks at Jackson. He thought maybe he could help Abby and her people, and they could help them.
-We immediately see Joel get attacked by Abby without any context. And then switching to Ellies POV of Joel getting killed. And from that point on most people hated TL02.
1st EP- I think the show should take a different approach. We should pick up from the perspective of Joel and Ellie years later and their happily ever after at Jackson with them but still having the question the integrity of their happiness because the lie of Ellie and not knowing the truth. Also show Tommy, his wife, his kid. Show the pure joy in the community. Whilst during the enjoyment of the town and comradery. Then you see Ellie sitting down off to the side not talking to anyone looking very detached with her Tomboy type of style look and Dina is off in the distance and sees her and likes that the same way she liked her when she first seen her when Joel and Ellie first arrived at Jackson. So, Dina comes up to her and offers to dance. Ellie would obviously be a little jokily sarcastic/ not too interested but she bites in and accepts to dance. Meanwhile while talking and dancing with Dina we should get a second to see Joel step to the side due to him emotionally having trouble dealing with all the things he did at the hospital to save Ellie. So, he has the beginning conversation he had with Tommy, and he tells him everything that happened. And that should cut the first ep.
2nd EP- should cut to Abby and her perspective of the events right after Joel killed everyone at the hospital revealing who her father is and her watching on camera over and over again of Joel walking in and shooting her father building her anger and finding out that Joel is the man responsible. She goes on her journey of revenge. She packs up her gear and going to Seattle for a new start and leaving everything behind with her friends. In search. End of ep 2.
Ep 3- we see a time jump into the present of Joel and Ellie now at Jackson. Abby and her Folks has joined WLF and after a long time her group discovers information about an old firefly (Tommy) whereabouts and her folks suspects its Tommy but is unsure its him. They procrastinate on if worth going after him and if they may be able to find him or Joel but after Abby visibly is infuriated and gives an encouraging speech to her group about what Joel has done to her to her father, to their friends, it sparks their fire, sparks their ambition, and their goal of revenge to find Joel but first they must find Tommy. End of ep 3
Ep 4- we pick up in Jacksonville and we get to see Ellie and Joel relationship grow fonder while on a supply run, we get a nice, infected herd for them to take care and we get to see Joel just visibly older and struggling to handle himself, but he fakes like he's not really "old and deaf". Meanwhile we see Ellie clearly picked up from what Joel taught her and we see her ability to handle herself well as she takes them runners without much of a problem with her weapon/ knife combo. They take off with the supplies quickly due to the amount of noise they created. As they make their way back, they run into Abby with a kid alone and need of help. Runners on her tail and with seconds of being bit Joel saves her Abby's life. Ellie quickly makes sure Abby, and the kid (Lev) is ok, and we get a moment of shock because we didn't expect for them all to meet like this. Abby says she's ok and keeps her cool as she stares directly at Joel with a look of hatred because she hates him but a look thankfulness because he saved her. At the same time Joel looks at her with a stern look as if he knows something is off. Abby says to Joel and Ellie that she and Lev is alone and needs food and would be very grateful for anything that could help. Joel is stern on not helping and moving on, but Ellie isn't. Ellie wants to help. Ellie and Joel have a moment of disagree, but he finally folds and agrees to give them food and one night at Jackson only after talking to tommy after that they have to go. End of ep 4
Ep 5- we pick up the next day and see Ellie helping Abby and Lev with a new fit of clothes in her room. They talk about what happened and their both oddly similar personalities when they speak to each other. Ending each other sentences. Laughing. Both making very joking sarcastically lines. Ellie gets serious though and tells Abby she needs to talk with Tommy about her situation and they need to ask her questions. Abby agrees and goes to talk. After talking Tommy makes the decision to let her and Lev stay as her story, she created was convincing. Joel is still on edge and was still visibly upset about the decision and walks off. Ellie goes to calm him down and as they talk, she tickles him and makes him lighten up a bit as if it's not a big deal. She does the typical teenage daughter things you do to your father when he is mad to get her way. She also tells him they need to have a serious talk later today. Meanwhile Abby has went back to her room and talks discreetly on her radio to her folks that everything is going well, and she is in the walls and will keep them updated. We cut back to Ellie and Joel. Joel is sitting in his room playing his guitar as Ellie walks in. He plays a song for her which brings tears to her eyes. She utters out to Joel for him to be completely honest and what she's about to ask him is the serious convo she wanted to have earlier. She asks him about the hospital situation and what actually happened and for him to tell the complete truth. Joel freezes for a second. And he spits it out. He tells her he is sorry, but Marlene wasn't giving her a choice, so he chose to her save her life even if humanity would never be saved. Ellie is shocked and cannot speak. She breaks down and starts to talk about everyone she could've saved if the vaccine was made. She says she could've saved riley, Tess, and Sam and Joel took that from her. She tells him her life would've fucking mattered. Joel tells her with tears in his eyes he couldn't lose another child and that he would've done it all over again. Ellie walks out his room. End of ep 5 (Jesus that would be an emotional roller-coaster)
Ep 6- we cut back to Abby and her plan to infiltrate Jackson to see if she can find Tommy and Joel. She decides it's better to go alone. Her folks are aware and is standing by for updates. She takes off during the day and finds herself in a town not too far from Jackson. While in the town looking for somewhere to camp for the night she comes across a kid. The kid is Lev, and he is very defensive because of Abby startling him. Lev has been in the town surviving after he lost his parents. After putting their guards down Lev explains how he's been surviving and the death of his parents. Abby instantly starts to relate because she too has lost her parents. They have been in the town for few days down and have been trapped. After Abby entered, she set off Lev traps and has created an opening for infected. While pinned down inside they have started to bond. Abby starts feel a sort feeling of wanting to protect Lev and save him unlike how she was able to save her father. Wanting to get out of this town and make her way to Jackson. They devise a plan. Lev knowing his way around, but it will leave the chance of being chased by runners as there is no way to escape discreetly. Ep 6 ends with her and Lev barely making it out the town and with runners chasing their tracks a mile out. the Ep ends with Her and Lev running into Joel and Ellie and Joel saving them.
Ep 7- Abby and Lev has made themself at home and has a place here at Jackson. We get more Abby gaining Ellie trust and actually bonding. Abby starts to see a parallel of her Lev and Joel and Ellie. Ellie vents to Dina about her and Joel situation but on the bright side her and Abby has been making great friends. She has no idea what has yet to come. Lev gets to be a kid again and is having snowballs fight with the other kids and Ellie and Dina.
Ep 8- Abby sits in her room and contemplates if she wants to follow through with the plan to kill Joel and call her folks on radio to take him out. Abby has a dilemma. She then gets flashbacks of Joel on camera shooting her father. Abby calls in her troops. WLF arrives and catches Jackson by surprise. We get Joel in the middle of town with everyone watches as if he is on trial. She gives her loud speech on why Joel is on the ground and what he has done and all the suffering he has created for others. Ellie then screams and cries and tells her their whole relationship was a fraud. Ellie takes a look at Joel as she thinks about how much she actually loves him and their fond memories. We see slight glimpses of the sheep ranch, her and Joel at the museum together inside a spaceship the astronauts use, the giraffe pets. As Abby is about to murder Joel with a golf club in front of everyone, she takes a look at Lev and gets glimpses of their days bonding together in the town where they thought they will meet their demise, the happiness Lev has had since he has been at Jackson. She stops and drops the golf club. She then tells her WLF Crew to stop pointing their guns. She has a moment, but it wasn't forgiveness, but a moment of more bloodshed will not fix things. The pain will still be there. She sees what she is to Lev is what Joel is to Ellie. Then we get a time skip. In the end we see Ellie and Joel on the porch. Joel drinks his coffee which Ellie reminds him it smells like shit. And there she tells him she is ready to repair their relationship. Joel agrees as he would like that.
The credits roll.

2023.03.28 21:33 dask-jeeves Does anyone have recommendations on where to stay for PyData Seattle?

Hi folks, our team is looking at where to stay for PyData Seattle and we are debating whether to be near the conference center or around Capitol Hill. It looks like staying in Capitol Hill could be nice and fun but at the expense of dealing with traffic to and from the conference, while staying near the conference center is convenient but there is not much to do for after the conference.
What other people are doing?

REVIEW BMW 220d Coupé M Sport offers driving thrills without the thirst

https://preview.redd.it/fl3sw2e95gpa1.png?width=750&format=png&auto=webp&s=fe1a8c4b5fa52902da95a904ecd776d2dfb1ee1d
The 2 Series is one of the few modern BMWs not styled with a contentiously large grille. Picture: DENIS DROPPA
The sensible turbodiesel engine was somewhat out of kilter with the racy looks of this low-slung coupé as the car’s athletic shape seemed to call for high-revving petrol power. But that’s not to say the BMW 220d Coupe M Sport is deficient in the performance department.

The four-cylinder 2.0 turbodiesel engine has been a stalwart in BMW’s range, powering several of its larger models with verve and efficiency, and its 140kW and 400Nm feel satisfyingly lively in the light and compact 2 Series.

The respectable seven-second 0-100km/h sprint and 237km/h top speed attest to this, and the 220d has peppy pace when the throttle is thrust in anger, scooting off the line with spirit and almost no turbo lag. There is enough power whenever you need it, whether stealing gaps in traffic or punching past long trucks on the open road.

It’s just that the quiet and low-revving engine has an easygoing demeanour that doesn’t inspire hard-throttle driving, which contributed to the economical 6.8l/100km average we attained in the car.

At R889,706 the 220d seems like the most sensible buy in the 2 Series Coupé range for its mix of performance and economy. The car is also available as the 220i coupe M Sport (R842,590) with outputs of 135kW and 300Nm, and the flagship M240i xDrive Coupe with 285kW/500Nm (R1,138,662). The M2 will arrive later this year as the Alpha of the range, wielding 338kW and 550Nm.

Despite being one of the Munich firm’s smallest cars, the new 2 Series delivers the typical business class BMW experience. The second generation 2 Series Coupé, now more closely based on the larger 4 Series, is more grown up than the 1 Series-based coupé that preceded it in 2014. At 4,537mm the car is 105mm longer than the model it replaces, with increases in width and wheelbase too, and with its 12% improvement in torsional rigidity it feels impressively solid.

Chassis components carried over from the 4 Series further distinguish the new 2 Series Coupé from the compact 1 Series. Standard M Sport suspension and low-profile 19-inch tyres give the car a ride that’s on the firm side, but without being uncomfortably jarring, while the lengthened wheelbase prevents it from feeling choppy. Though there is some noticeable jittering over bumps and potholes, the car generally delivers an acceptably smooth ride.

It may not be Munich’s most powerful beast, but the 220d Coupé delivers the typically slick and pointy handling of compact rear wheel drive BMWs. It’s a treat to throw this car through a curve and experience its pressed-down nature and well-weighted steering, and there are eco, normal and sport drive modes that affect throttle, steering and gearshift responses.

There’s enough power to kick the tail out when you apply the juice too hard, though electronic nannies ensure such playful diversions are kept safely in check.

https://preview.redd.it/xrjz0wqd5gpa1.png?width=750&format=png&auto=webp&s=d062a815f448e84b5ac6703a5ed1ba23dfb69d95
Inside the new 2 Series the executive flair is laid on with high-quality trimmings. The sporting appeal is raised by leathesuede bucket seats and M colour trim on the doors. The obligatory digitisation comes in the form of an infotainment touchscreen and a digital instrument panel, but user-friendly physical controllers, including the tried and tested iDrive knob, remain for many of the oft-used functions.

Despite the car’s increase in size, the two rear seats remain cramped for adults and are best suited to small children. Boot space is a creditable 390l , however, and the split rear seats flip down to provide extra loading space.

Gadgets include a reversing camera, doors that automatically unlock and lock when you approach/leave the car and USB chargers. Like most German premium cars, the 220d is not overly endowed with features, and items such as electrically adjustable front seats, adaptive cruise control and parking sensors all have to be ticked in the options list.

Larger and lower than its forerunner, the new 2 Series is a more grown-up car. Picture: DENIS DROPPA
The 2 Series is one of the few modern BMWs not styled with a contentiously large grille, and has conventionally sized air intakes — much to the relief of some, we suspect. Instead of oversized nostrils it uses flared wheel arches and a “power dome” on the bonnet to relay a youthful and extrovert aura, aided by sitting 28mm lower than its predecessor for a more sporty and pressed-down look.

Two-door cars are rare these days and the BMW 220d Coupé M Sport makes no pretensions at family practicality. It’s a car that will be enjoyed for its athletic looks and sporty driver appeal, with the thirst of a teetotaller as a bonus.

2023.03.28 18:44 llsm200 Documentary thoughts

This can only go poorly for Trish. The thing with her is all the receipts regarding her outrageous behavior were created by her. No one had to go digging to find her true character. She chose to film, edit and upload videos of her supporting pedophilia, mocking DID, and engaging in culturally inappropriate stereotypes. She gladly jumped in front of the Vlog Squad cameras to admit she abused Jason and used her platform on Frenemies to admit she abuses her husband. She constantly shoots herself in the foot.
She has tried to gain sympathy multiple times by painting Reddit as the big, evil monster, but all she has done is drive more traffic to the forums where - again - people can see the receipts for themselves.
If they want to use YouTube to air this piece, typing in her name brings up more videos against Trisha than in support of her. YouTube is exposing her more and more.
The only glimmer of relevance she can maintain is by ignoring the platforms that provide the truth and continue jumping on each new social media app. The typical adopter of new social media is 16 - 22 years old - people who will likely be naive regarding Trish. The trouble is those ages don’t find a married mother in her mid-thirties cool, and they won’t find a divorced 40-year-old cool. Trish’s attempts to keep up with trends is painfully awkward and any interest from the younger generations is quickly fleeting.
Her career is done. We’re just sitting back enjoying the train wreck now. 🙂
