2023.06.07 17:09 iusethistolearnstuff I need help.

36yo male
I have been through the ringer for the last few months and I’m getting no answers. I need help.
I’ve posted before. In late March I started having random yellow fluid drained from the left side of my nose about 1x/week.
This continued for about a month until I finally got in to my ENT and complete a course of amoxicillin. At the end of the course, I passed a very little volume of green/yellow sticky mucous from my left side.
After that I was in pain on just my left side for about a week until me ENT prescribed a course of methylprednisolone. After the steroids I felt great.
Now, a few weeks after the steroids, the pressure on the left side is coming back. I had a CT scan just after the steroids and it came back without anything all the concerning. Moderate bilateral maxillary mucous retention cysts, deviated septum with spurring, and some mild opacification.
A couple days ago while doing a sinus rinse and after feeling the pressure coming back, I ended up passing a very very large amount of white mucus again out of the left side.
I’m so lost. I’m always out of sorts with sinus pressure and feeling “off”. Never knowing if I’m going to have some weird drainage. I’m so lost, I’m getti no help, and I don’t know what to do anymore.

2023.06.07 16:40 Harlepenquin Unprovoked assault at work (England)

I work for a large casino operator in England, I was recently (26th May) threatened then punched at work by someone that I/my employe the police are unable to identify resulting in the complete loss of a tooth (it was already cracked)
I insisted on it being reported to the police and I was given a case number, as far as I'm aware the police have not collected the CCTV of the incident, I did communicate with the police about a week ago and state I was concerned my employer may have under reported my assault and to enquire if that is why the CCTV has not been collected.
It is my genuine belief that it is the company that is fault, they recently switched (maybe 3 months ago) from a members only policy to an open door policy and I don't think they conducted a proper risk assessment at the time, I actually expressed verbal concerns at the time to my line managers on multiple occasions and requested a risk assessment be done had it not been done. There may not be any record of this though.
My employer did not investigate the situation after the assault, at all, as far as I'm aware and I was told the other day 'it's just one of those things that happen'
Am I best off looking for a no win no fee lawyer?
Some monetary compensation would be nice but I would much rather they just review staffing at every club they switched to open door and look at getting SIA trained door staff present at all times, or at the very least a lot more then what they currently do, even before this happened that seemed like very basic common sense to me. The incident that happened could have been much worse, if I hadn't dealt with it professionally the damage to me in that instance could of been far worse and the amount of guns and knifes around is a scary thought for when it inevitably happens to someone else. I am 100 percent confident that they will not be able to find fault in any of the actions I took on the day, I would not be surprised if they tried and if that would count as an investigation.
Would a no win no fee lawyer just look as getting compensation for my tooth and then move on or would they also pursue my HSE complaint if requested, would that be separate to a compensation claim or merely just attached to prove fault and not really be pursued?

2023.06.07 16:31 I_am_a_Victor_simp Im Actually scared as fuck about the air quality

Ive been sick for 3 weeks now with a sinus infection, and I've been coughing horribly. I left my window open last night to sleep because i have no air conditioning. Last night I woke up coughing my lungs out, almost unable to breathe. And this has only happened when I leave my windows open. Air pollution is absolutely fucking terrifying. Im stuck in my house now because two of my siblings have asthma, and I’m seriously worried about what’s going to happen in the future with these forest fires and more and more pollution.

2023.06.07 16:29 juicy_joe_126 Video of deranged man filming himself getting chased by police in car and driving wrong way down highway

A few years ago, probably 2017 or ‘18, I saw a video as the title describes. I saw this on instagram. I’m going to try and recall as much as I can, here goes:
He films a Volkswagen Jetta (I think) with a smashed windshield. Backstory was he threw a brick through it. I distinctly remember him filming a woman walking down the street as he drives by saying something like “look at the smile” (referring to her). He’s also smoking a blunt or a cigarillo through all this. Video cuts to him filming himself getting chased by the cops. At some point, a cop car pulls up next to his car (at speed) and the cop is yelling at him to pull over from his open window. Next video cut, he’s driving the wrong way down the highway still getting chased by cops. He’s not driving too fast in this part though, and the approaching cars are slowing down and diverting.
Well… that’s all I’ve got. This video was a hell of roller coaster. If you’ve seen it, you definitely know what I’m talking about. I’ve searched the deepest ends of the internet for this. Any help is appreciated!!

2023.06.07 15:55 DW_Lurker Textbook Publishers in violation of US Legal Code. Where to Begin?

TLDR: Where do you begin if you want to report a corporation to the government for violations of US Code?
I work in the college textbook industry, and to cut to the chase, every major publisher in the market right now is in violation of https://law.justia.com/codes/us/2020/title-20/chapter-28/subchapter-i/part-c/sec-1015b/
There's a section here about the "Unbundling of College Textbooks from Supplemental Materials", and when this issue was new, most publishers did comply with these requirements. However as time has passed and no one has been keeping an eye on them, they are back to claiming that most packages and supplemental materials are not available as individual purchases, and have been neglecting to issue each component with unique identifiers (ISBNs) and prices.
What's the first step in getting an issue like this back into the light? I have access to a good amount of product information through my own job which can be used to show the violations. The 1015b language mentions a "Comptroller General of the United States" and also an authorizing committee, but specifies a deadline of 2013 so I don't imagine that's the same place to begin now.

2023.06.07 14:08 MisterGallows Brand New ONE PIECE Fanfiction Series!

Hello, my friends! This is my very first post on this page, and honestly i can't believe it's taken me so long. Thank you for letting me join up and be a part of this awesome community!:)
My name is Danny Gallows, and i am a writer and musician. I was a late bloomer to OP, having only started watching the show in the summer of 2020, but since then it has become a massive part of my life and is currently, by far, my new favorite anime. I just started watching the Zou arc last week, and my OP energy has never been higher! I originally began watching OP at a time in my life when i really need happiness and inspiration, and being able to continuously join the Straw Hat's on their adventures has been one of the most amazing experiences of my life.
And that brings me to my post today! As i mentioned, i am an proud independent author, focusing on mostly fantasy/fanfiction. I usually create books for shows/movies/games that inspire me, and have since released two Star Wars books, as well as a Dark Crystal novel. But for the past year or so I've also had many ideas for a OP arc floating around in my head, so i began to fill up some notebooks. And after the "Raizo is safe" moment, i was so inspired that i finally decided to sit down and start it.
I figured because this community page allows some self promotion, this would be the best place to share it:) So i wanted to let you all know! Here is the book's description:
"The Lighthouse Empire Arc takes place immediately after the Fishman Island Arc, as the crew sails North to their next destination. After seeing a mysterious light on the horizon, the crew soon finds themselves on the doorstep of a massive floating city the size of a real island. In the shape of a star, with colorful lighthouses at each point, the made-made city is 80K strong, with 5 ships and their captains, as well as a commodore named Dani Sky, a man who ate the sky-sky fruit, leading his humble civilization with pride and power. Yet soon after the crew arrives, they find themselves adrift in a sea of darkness, as Naval forces descend like a ferocious storm upon the empire. As the crew will soon discover, the humble family that cares for this place harbors evil histories they have been trying to escape. Now that Luffy has befriended them, their situation becomes his responsibly."
So far i already have one episode completed, and i release them one half at a time. I have writing fever right now, so the plan is to release something new every week. Oda has always been a huge inspiration for me, and i believe that both cosplay and fanfiction are the most sincere forms of respect and gratitude us fans can show. And sense i can't cosplay--except for maybe Fat Luffy--writing is definitely my forte!
Unlike my normal books, which obviously read like books, this series is set up to read as if you were watching the show itself. So the descriptions are short and literal, everything is in present tense, and it's formatted more like a screenplay, which makes it easier for those who are familiar with watching the show. Needless to say, this is a massive undertaking and it will most likely take me another year or so to complete, as it's a full arc. Something i always want to make clear is that i do not write traditional fanfiction, which is often just short, poorly writen ideas. I create actual, well thought out books which could be canon. I like to think that if i have passion for what i'm writing about, i understand the characters and world well enough to make something realistic, and i'm definietly very confident in this new series!
Thank you so much for reading my long post. Sorry, but i'm writer--i write!:) And if you'd like to start a new OP adventure, i publish all of my work on Wattpad, so it's available to all and completely free to read. And please remember that much more is on the way soon, you're only at the very tip of the iceberg! I have tons of notes planned out for an extremely detailed arc, which will play out just like any other arc you may enjoy.
Here is the link to my page! : https://www.wattpad.com/useDCLGalloway
Enjoy, my friends! More updates to come soon as i release new material! MUCH LOVE.

There is no fear in love. But perfect love drives out fear, because fear has to do with punishment. The one who fears is not made perfect in love. 1 John 4:18
The Apostle John repeatedly teaches that loving God (other scripture writers refer to it as “fearing” God) is the antidote to fear. Fear is a tactic of Satan which all believers must face. Those under severe persecution often face this challenge early.
Behbaha, an Iranian secret believer from Muslim background (MBB), shares that her aunt went to a house church and she accompanied her. But she was afraid. She knew that the government controlled the church and that scared her.
“At that time I worked in a job that was state controlled. Every time they gave us questionnaires we should fill out, one of the questions is about religion. Of course you have to fill in; ‘Muslim,’ but I could not do that anymore…”
In the house church she attended with her aunt she learned about the Bible and what Jesus taught in a very practical way. Taking a discipleship training course was a great blessing for Behbaha. She says, “I was able to understand the Bible, I saw the good Lord of the Bible, saw His love—and that changed my life.” After six years of searching she gave her life to Jesus.
The good thing is that her family does not have any problems with her changing and going to church. “Neighbors are the problem”, she states. “The government tells on radio and TV that if you know a person who is not dedicated to the government or to Islam you should go to the police and tell them when you suspect someone of being a Christian.”
After she became a Christian she left her job. “Much too dangerous,” she comments. “I am not able anymore to fill out that form [because of the religion question]. Now I am working part time with some small companies, who are not working with these forms asking about faith.” She does not know if she is observed by the secret police, because of her former job. Behbaha is not aware of being watched. “But I have to be careful, they are able to kill me,” she says with conviction. “Sometimes people are killed; sometimes they have to leave the country. Maybe, if they catch me, I will be killed, but this week of training took away my fear.”
The first three discipleship courses were via internet. The fourth she did in a safe location. Behbaha concludes, “The course on location is very good. The interaction among each other, seeing the teacher face to face, meant that I did not fall asleep, like often happens in church. This is very good.”
After taking the training seminar she wants to teach the course to others—especially church people. Behbaha also wants to pass on the training to her family and friends. “I want to share and show love. My dream after this training is to have house groups with my family members, friends and colleagues to teach them. But…your life should be a good testimony to everyone and Jesus must increase in your life. I am working on that.”
RESPONSE: Today I will focus on fearing God so that I will not fear anything or anyone else.
PRAYER: Pray new believers around the world involved in discipleship training will learn not to fear.

2023.06.07 13:23 theflameinthewater Starting to plateau

It’s not a huge problem but I wanted to rant about it. I’m currently 6 weeks into going to the gym 5 days per week. In the first month I lost 5kg, but the scales are saying I’m not losing as much now, although they jump up and down regularly and it’s annoying (on both a new and an old set of scales). So I’m currently ~77kg (5 “10 male). My diet has been the same except I had a couple days when I wasn’t in a deficit, and a couple days where I wasn’t intermittent fasting as long as usual. But there were other days I ate way better and fasted for longer. Inner calf pain has also become a problem. I took a week and a half off but it didn’t help. I can still do my usual 1k treadmill/1k row warm up, but ideally I’d love to do more if it weren’t for the pain. And I don’t think it’s doms anymore.
I’m guessing weight loss has slowed due to a couple days not in a calorie deficit and the rest I took from cardio. But it sucks, and I’m not sure what to do about this calf problem. I think I’ll change my intermittent fasting times to longer, which should fit my schedule better anyways though, so maybe that and dieting better + pushing through with the warm ups anyways will help

2023.06.07 12:32 vesnin_sergey How do you think I could capitalize on failures?

How do you think I could capitalize on failures?

Menteora recommends turning failure into profit:
Why is it so hard for mature companies to grow? One of the main underlying reasons is the fear of failure. Indeed, according to 31 percent of respondents to a 2015 Boston Consulting Group survey, the biggest obstacle to innovative work is the desire to avoid making mistakes. CEOs know this well. For one thing, they understand that failure can be beneficial. As William McKnight, chairman of 3M, once said, "The brave ones work best and best ... Mistakes are necessary." Pixar president Ed Catmull says, "You don't have to think of mistakes as inevitable evil. Or evil at all. Mistakes are the inevitable consequence of trying to do something new ... and a valuable experience."


Problem. Managers know that work on innovation, without which growth is impossible, comes with failures; mistakes should be tolerated and readily accepted, but most still avoid them at all costs. Solution. Make losses more acceptable by increasing their impact: carefully analyze and document the benefits of failed projects, including knowledge gained about customers, markets, teams, and specific employees, development trends, and the company structure, processes, and culture. Value Added To maximize.
On the other hand, budgeting, resource allocation, and risk control are aimed at predictability and good economic results - and top managers are believed to be able to guarantee them. Even knowing that failure is necessary and desirable, people do everything to avoid it.
One must learn from failures, measure their utility, and gain as much benefit from them as possible. In calculating the utility, or profitability, of failure, the denominator should be the resources spent on it. Profitability will be higher if you reduce the denominator by reducing investment. Or gradually invest the money in installments as the major unknowns become clearer. In the numerator are the "assets" of the experience gained: information about customers and markets, the company, its team, and business processes. Increasing these "assets" can also increase the utility of failure.
Having studied group and organizational dynamics for more than a decade and having worked with more than 50 companies from various industries, we have found that increasing the profitability of failure depends on the team's mood and not only by increasing the numerator but also by decreasing the denominator. Some failures quickly provide market insights that bode well for the company's meaningful competitive advantage. Others give lessons of a more abstract nature, valid for the professional development of employees and the organization as a whole. Three rules should be followed for the profitability of mistakes to grow. First, you can go ahead and study each failed project and get the most instructive things out of it. Then they generalize their findings and explain them to the whole organization. Finally - based on a detailed analysis prove that the company tolerates mistakes and thus contributes to their highest cost-effectiveness.

Rule #1. Learn from every mistake.

First, you have to teach people to think about every failed project. This is not easy: dealing with past mistakes is tricky and unpleasant.
Many people would instead look only into the future than look back.
Any failure in plans is an opportunity to test and adjust initial assumptions. Our advice is to write down everything you learned from the project in these categories: customer and market dynamics; organizational strategy, culture, and processes; yourself and your team; and future trends. All of these "assets" will go into the numerator. It would be best to list all the costs: money and time spent on the project, moral damage, reputational damage, and internal indirect expenses - say, the distraction of management from other tasks. Here, for example, is how this method was applied in a British daily newspaper. A few years ago, the publisher's CEO asked a young, capable editor and marketing and design experts to develop a new small-format newspaper layout and test it on readers.
The experiment led to two important discoveries. First, no matter what people said in the surveys, they preferred traditional broadband newspapers - or their digital counterparts. Second, a small assembled team was needed to develop new formats. But the main lesson was the "human" lesson. The young editor in charge of the project decided he was failing the assignment and left the company. The CEO could only put it in the fraction denominator, but he understood why the strong employee left, so he also increased the numerator.
"The editor," says the general manager, "thought he was piloting a new publication, and if it didn't make a splash, it would be a failure. For me, it was just an experiment-it was to test my hypothesis. I now realize that I did not explain what I expected of him well.
The publishing house manager took the blame for the employee's departure. Now, he tries to speak more openly to his subordinates and encourages a willingness to experiment in the team.
The second example is a "major-league" consulting firm from which a less prestigious competitor snatched a tidbit of a state contract. It was a powerful, unforeseen blow. But the long reflection and discussion benefited everyone involved in the tender. It became clear that the criteria for selecting the contractor differed from those believed in the firm, that the competitor understood better what the customer wanted and interacted closely with government officials when placing the bid.
Other discoveries were made in the course of the discussion. The firm needed to understand the criteria because it was sure of winning and was guessing more than trying to determine the customer's requirements. Believing that the firm's high-profile name spoke for itself, the bid team didn't call the best consultants to help. "Let's be honest: We took the project far less seriously than the competition - and we lost," said one of the firm's executives.
In other words, the main benefit of the failure was the realization that the firm should treat orders differently. If people can discuss projects this way, the discussion yields impressive results. Employees discuss what happened and draw conclusions; they understand how mistakes can help them in the future and what important insights the experience of failed promises.


Even a failed project can benefit an organization if it is carefully studied and important lessons learned. To get a complete picture of the benefits and losses of a failed project, please answer a few questions.
  1. What have we learned about your customers' and markets' needs and preferences? Should the company change its thinking about them?
  2. What have we learned about future trends? How can we adjust our projections?
  3. What have we learned about how we work as a team? Are our internal processes, structures, and culture effective?
  4. What new skills have we learned - individually and as a team? Did the project help build trust and improve the atmosphere in the group? Did it reveal any development needs?
  1. What direct losses - material, labor, production - did the project lead to?
  2. Are there any moral damages? Was there a blow to the company's reputation and competitiveness in the market or the eyes of customers?
  3. What are the internal costs? Has the failure undermined team morale? Did other projects suffer because all eyes were on the failed project? Were there other unintended consequences?
  4. Bottom line
What lessons did the business learn from the bottom line?

Performance of AI in the Education and the Smart Classrooms

Lately, the mix of man-made consciousness (man-made intelligence) in training has achieved groundbreaking changes in the manner in which understudies learn and teachers educate.
From astute guides that offer customized help to shrewd homerooms outfitted with trend-setting innovations, computer-based intelligence is altering instruction and forming the fate of learning.

AI in the Education

In this article, we will investigate the different jobs of artificial intelligence in training and its effect on the two understudies and teachers.

Canny Coaches

Computer-based intelligence-controlled wise mentoring frameworks are changing how understudies get customized help and direction. These guides use AI calculations to adjust to individual understudy needs, giving redid growth opportunities.

Customized Learning

Simulated intelligence is driving the shift toward customized learning draws near. Versatile learning stages controlled by artificial intelligence dissect understudy execution information, distinguish learning holes, and prescribe fitted substances to address individual requirements.

Brilliant Homerooms

Simulated intelligence is changing conventional study halls into shrewd learning conditions. These brilliant homerooms coordinate simulated intelligence advances, like intelligent whiteboards, expanded reality (AR), and computer-generated reality (VR), to improve understudy commitment and work with vivid growth opportunities.

Mechanized Reviewing and Input

Simulated intelligence smoothes out the evaluating system via robotizing the assessment of tasks and giving quick criticism to understudies. Regular language handling calculations empower the examination of composed reactions, empowering instructors to save time while offering ideal criticism.

Information-Driven Experiences

Man-made intelligence engages instructors with information-driven bits of knowledge into understudy execution, empowering them to pursue informed educational choices. Examining huge volumes of information, computer-based intelligence calculations can distinguish patterns, foresee learning results, and propose customized intercessions.
The reconciliation of man-made intelligence in schooling is upsetting the learning scene, enabling understudies with customized help and changing homerooms into dynamic and drawing-in conditions.
Man-made intelligence-fueled insightful mentors, customized learning stages, and savvy homerooms are reshaping training, encouraging individualized growth opportunities, and further developing learning results.
With computer-based intelligence mechanizing reviewing processes and giving information-driven bits of knowledge, instructors can zero in on customized guidance and comprehensive understudy improvement.

2023.06.07 12:10 levnekaethian Where can I find out more about level 1 autism?

I'm in my mid 30's and I recently started going to see a behavioral psychologist after a significant outburst of anger and rage at a friend. The anger stuck with me for hours on end. I have been trying to work on myself and the things I didn't like about myself for the better part of almost 20 years. Occasionally, I would search online for ways to try and manage certain aspects of my life but I always thought I could handle the majority of it on my own with introspection.
A few days ago, I don't remember why but I came across an autism quiz online while really researching some things I wanted to work on to improve myself. I took it and honestly just found it amusing that I got a 9/10. I decided to take another one just to see... 18/20. Another one... 41/50. At that point I still didn't consider it a possibility as most of these questions just seemed like they were oriented towards introverted people. Plenty of people like doing things alone, don't like eye contact, have trouble with friendships, etc, etc. Not only that, I assumed these questionnaires are much like WebMD and trying to find out why you have a sore throat leads you to having ebola.
Clearly the Google algorithms caught on and as I happened to be browsing YouTube, a video popped by someone who is autistic where they talked about some of the significant signs of autism. I figured why not, there's no way I'm autistic so this will just get that thought out of my head. I watched that video and its like someone ripped out my soul, copy-pasted my personality and my mind and played it in video format back to me in a way that explained my feelings and my actions in a manner as I could never have articulated myself. I watched a few more and the level of discomfort I felt about just how closely correlated what was being said matched those very things I noticed in myself was overwhelming. Again, it was like someone was explaining myself to me in a way I just couldn't.
I am not convinced I could impartially and definitely say I have level 1 autism (if that's the right way to say it), there are lots of traits and signs that match me but also many that do not, so I'm going to bring this up with the counselor on my next visit to therapy. I'm also not asking anyone here to "authenticate" whether I may or may not be autistic - but I would love to be able to research autism more in depth and really have something to take to therapy and ask my counselor about it. Does anyone have suggestions as to what I could read or watch to gain a better understanding of autism itself and hopefully help me identify if autism is a plausible diagnosis I might search for. This is something I never thought I'd look much into and I don't really know where to start. Thank you.

Though most of the UK's visa routes offer the option to bring dependents along with you, one question that you may think of is if your dependent would be eligible to work in the UK?
To explore this answer, we have highlighted every point about UK dependent visas and whether they are eligible to work or not.
What is a dependent visa?
A dependent visa is given to the kids or spouse of the person holding the main visa. This visa often has the same validity as that of the primary visa holder; however, the rights in different sectors may vary.
However, to get the dependent UK visa, the applicant must provide valid proof demonstrating that he/she has enough funds to support the dependents during their stay. These funds have to be shown in order to prove that they won't rely on the government to support them.
Additionally, the dependent should also have a genuine relationship with the main visa holder.
For the approval of the UK visa, the applicant must provide a marriage certificate or a birth certificate depending upon the relationship with the dependent. Submission of all the documents required for a UK visa is a must.
