TEAS Practice Test Mistakes that will make you Fail

2023.06.07 14:33 AnimatorPerfect6709 TEAS Practice Test Mistakes that will make you Fail

1. Not simulating test-day conditions
If you fail to follow the rules, you may find yourself disqualified. Here are the strict rules you must adhere to during the ATI TEAS 7 examination.
What you need in an exam room
What you mustn’t carry to an exam room
2. Rushing through questions
Although you have limited time, you shouldn’t rush through the questions. First, take a breath, feel comfortable, and start your exam. Make sure you read the question carefully and answer it in your head before looking at the multiple answers.
3. Focusing too much on one section at the expense of others
This is one of the common TEAS Practice Test mistakes. It’s important not to spend too much time on any one question during the TEAS exam. If you can’t answer a question immediately, and it’s slowing you down, skip it and answer last. Remember that there is no penalty for answering a question incorrectly.
4. Not reviewing incorrect answers thoroughly
You should know the exam is tricky and no answer will come quickly, and there might be two answers that seem correct. However, you should rise above the trick by reviewing the incorrect and correct answers thoroughly.
5. Forgetting to time yourself
Effective time management is crucial both before and during the TEAS exam. Each section has a set amount of time, so use your time wisely and avoid questions you are unsure of. It’s advisable to reserve some extra time at the end of the exam to review your answers and make any necessary corrections. Practicing with several TEAS practice tests with Naxlex can help you identify and address any time management issues.
6. Not using practice tests to identify weak areas and adjust the study plan
Practicing exam-style questions from reliable websites can be helpful, regardless of your confidence before the test. Though it may require an additional fee to access test prep materials from Naxlex, taking a TEAS practice test at the beginning of your study period.
After pinpointing these areas, it’s essential to review the material extensively to increase preparedness for the exam.

2023.06.07 14:32 mstarcofficial A Comprehensive Guide Diamond Ring Price in Pakistan

Diamond rings symbolize love, dedication, and elegance. Understanding the price variables for Pakistani diamond rings is crucial. This reference to Diamond Ring Price in Pakistan considers diamond quality, design, metal type, and market trends. Understanding these variables helps shoppers choose the right diamond ring for their budget and tastes.

Price Factors

Quality Is Everything
Diamond prices depend on their quality. "Four Cs"—cut, color, clarity, and carat weight—grade diamonds. Diamond cut describes its dimensions and light reflection. D (colorless) to Z (light yellow). Carat weight denotes diamond size, whereas clarity indicates internal or external imperfections. Diamond rings cost more when these four factors improve.
Design and craftsmanship also impact diamond ring prices. Complex designs need more time and skill to make, making them more expensive. Platinum or gold might also affect price. Customized or handcrafted diamond rings cost more due to their specific attention and effort.
Market Demand
Market trends and demand affect Pakistani diamond ring prices. Diamond availability and buyer preferences affect prices. Economic variables and foreign exchange rates can affect diamond ring prices. Buyers must follow market trends to make smart purchases.

Pakistan Diamond Ring Prices

Price Range
Quality, design, and market dynamics affect Pakistani diamond ring pricing. Lahore, a major diamond-buying location, has several possibilities for different budgets. Basic diamond rings cost roughly PKR 20,000. However, high-end diamond rings with exquisite embellishments might cost PKR 100,000 to several lakhs or more, depending on the diamond's features and craftsmanship.
Local Jewelers vs. Established Brands
Local and national jewelers sell diamond rings in Lahore. Local jewelers offer competitive rates and individual service. They may offer multiple designs or customisation. Established companies may offer more jewels and certification. Brand reputation and overhead costs may raise their price.
Pricing and Online Marketplaces
E-commerce has made online diamond ring shopping in Pakistan popular. These services make browsing and comparing costs easy. When buying online, verify the seller's legitimacy. Verified platforms and consumer reviews can reveal diamond ring reliability and cost.

2023.06.07 14:31 Avid_Hiker98 Option Flow Trading 101

Disclaimer: This is NOT financial advice. Everyone trades with different goals, on different time frames, and has a different risk tolerance. Trade your own account and DO NOT blindly follow others into a trade.
What is Option Flow Trading?
Flow trading is my preferred style of trading. Simply put, you look at options trades that are being placed and use it to help make determinations about where a stock might be headed (or if it may stay range bound). You look at various calls, puts, the size of the trade, and the timeframe of the trade.
Option flow can (but like anything in life/trading, doesn't always) work if done correctly. Think about it- there are professionals with way better technology, way better research, way better algorithims than we will ever have access to. Lets say they have information that a certain stock will trade to XYZ price. Well, they can profit off of that by buying the underlying options- and that's what we follow. This is the "smart" money.
Just Follow the Flow?
Not blindly. Remember, options flow show us the order but NOT THE WHY. Yesterday someone posted about NVDA July $500C being bought. Great! But what if that trader is short 12,000 shares of NVDA? On a 0.06 delta trade, that's a perfect hedge. The reality is we do not know what the intention of the trade was. Maybe it was a long bet. We don't know.
Then What's the Point?
Like everything, option flow trading is a TOOL. Nothing more. Identify where the smart money is positioned, and incorporate the other techniques to select high probability trades with positive reward/risk ratios.
An Example of What I Look For:
Yesterday, I went long NFLX out of the money calls. Why? As I posted many times, the technical setup was superb. The stock was consolidating its gains after a move up and ready for the next leg.
But why now?
They were buying longer dated calls for a few days. But yesterday I saw something very unusual. Someone came in and sold 100x weekly $425 in the money puts for $27 each while the stock was at $397. Selling puts is a major bullish sign that someone thinks the stock is going to go higher, and go higher quick.
Today we woke up to two street high price target upgrades. Hmmmmmm.
Let's look at the Boeing (BA) weekly chart. This is one of the most beautiful bull flags I've ever seen. More often than not, bull flags DO resolve to the upside, hence the term bull, after the moving averages catch up to the price.
Well, on Friday, June 2, the "smart" money observed the same thing I did. They came in and bought a few million dollars worth of calls.
Yesterday (June 6th) BA got some negative news and the stock sold off -3%. Subsuquently, the "smart" money dumped all their calls for a 7-figure loss.
Does this mean the stock won't go up? Who knows. What it means is this trader was betting on immediate upside in the stock based on the technical pattern and that did not happen. This trader capped his/losses and moved on.
What I Look For:
As previously stated, option flow trading IS NOT a holy grail; it's merely a tool.
  1. Find a few stocks you like, learn how they trade, learn how the premiums move, study it. Become familiar with 10-15 names.
  2. Find a few chart patterns you like and have success with. I know Yolo_sense is a "super duper mega breakout" guy. I love that pattern as well! It has a high success rate, moves quick, and often goes higher than you expect. I also love trading bull flag breakouts- I've had a lot of success with them, but doesn't mean it's for everyone. Find what works for you and stick to those 2 or 3 setups.
  3. Then, after you've found a setup you believe in, look at what the "smart" money is doing. For anything OTHER THAN WEEKLIES (swing trading for a few days / weeks), I like to see multiple repeat orders into the same strike, same expiration, and I want to see the IV increasing. This shows the buyer wants to get in.
If you see a consistent bull setup, you see option flow that supports your thesis, you should take the trade.
There's no way to backtest all this since that would be literally hundreds of millions of trades. However, in 2020 I started tracking my P/L in Excel. Using this method I've found that ~ 63% of the trades I take are profitable.
  1. Black Box Stocks- great service. Great people who run this. They live stream the entire session and give commentary on what they look for, why, and how it works. I would recommend this for beginners.
  2. Options Hawk- I used Joe's premium service for 6 months. Ultimately, there is too much information for my need, but he is le crem de le creme of the options flow world. Spend a week in his live chat studying market dynamics and flow with him and you will learn more than trading yourself for a year. Very expensive, but cannot vouch enough.
  3. Cheddar Flow- This is just the one I use, but they're all the same. Just need some type of consolidated option flow platform to navigate all the trades. Once you know what you're looking for you don't need an expensive service.

2023.06.07 14:30 Ok_Sun1728 I'm ill
Notice! The video contains [eye-catching] content, You can watch at your own discretion.
I made a 4K AI converted video, And try to use my self-made lora, The face is that of a Japanese woman in her 40s. This test and the new attempt took about 30 hours of use, If tests and new attempts are not considered, It's just a simple video production time, Should be able to finish in about 15 hours, Yes, The new step reduces a lot of conversion time.
How is it different from deepfakes? AI conversion video is still slightly different from Deepfake, Deepfake simply transforms the face, AI converting video is more like a rendering function, Since I'm using a 3D model converted to a more realistic live-action style type, In addition to face replacement, It gives clothing a more realistic texture.
How is it different from using a filter effect? If you're converting from a live action video to a 2D style type, Maybe a filter can achieve 60% effect, But there doesn't seem to be a filter to convert the 2D style to a real person? Since I'm using a 3D model converted to a more realistic live-action style type, In addition to face replacement, It gives the clothes a more realistic texture, It's more of a performance boost feeling, For example, after upgrading from UE3 to UE4, It is a rendering function.
Feel the movement is not smooth? That's because I'm using a motion file (MMD) made by another author, It is done using dynamic simulation and modified frame by frame, Can't dance videos with real people, Or compared to real-time motion capture.
This time the steps are different from the previous ones, While other steps take more time, But the overall conversion time is reduced by 30 to 50%, And the overall work time is fragmented, Reduce the risk of failure that consumes a lot of time for one-time conversion, and add more stability, reduce flicker, relatively, The steps are more complicated, Many details in the steps and the plugins installed, I can't say it very clearly, So the whole process can only be used as a reference.
If you just want simple conversion, You should use the mov2mov plugin, But the effect is not satisfactory.
my steps
  1. Make a dance video, Can be made using MikuMikuDance.VAM.HS2, Some game mods also have similar functions. For example Skyrim, Of course using these software or games, means you need to spend more time studying, So many people find videos from websites like TikTok or Youtube, But I haven't done that. The video style should be as simple as possible. The more complex the movie, Subsequent conversions are more cumbersome, The recommended video is 1080P, And it's better to be a vertical screen, Because the proportion of the face is too small, will increase video conversion time, The risk of collapse of the face, You can also use common video editing software (Ex: Pr or CapCut), to increase the sharpness and brightness of the video, The purpose is to make the subsequent key frame pictures and mask pictures better identifiable. Excessively high resolution will cause the ebsynth plugin to be unrecognizable, Too low resolution will lead to distortion when converting images, This step is usually completed within a few hours, It depends on how you make it.
  2. Use the ebsynth plug-in to convert the movie into a frame number picture and a mask picture, ebsynth can effectively extract the keyframes of the movie, Since only keyframes are taken out for conversion, This drastically reduces conversion time, Fluency is also guaranteed to a certain extent. The relative ebsynth plug-in is very cumbersome and difficult to install and use. But I can't help you with that, (You should find an installation and use instruction that suits you, For example: you may need to install FFmpeg with transparent-background..., These installations require a little skill, You may not be able to install successfully, but sorry, I can't help you with this part, 100 people may have 101 computer software installation problems,) Masking images can effectively increase stability, This step takes about 1 hour to complete, Depending on the length of the video.
  3. Use the wd14-tagger plug-in to analyze the prompt of each key frame picture, Afterwards, the things you want to appear or delete in the screen will be deleted or added according to the prompt, This step can increase the stability of the picture. Since wd14-tagger may judge prompt error, Instead, items that should not appear in the prompt are added, Example: pistol? straw? ...things that shouldn't be in the picture at all, Use the dataset-tag-editor plug-in to delete prompts that should not appear in the picture in batches, And add these words in Negative prompt, It can avoid the chance of error when converting pictures.
  4. Use SD's picture generation function, The SIZE of the converted picture should be as large as possible. Depending on your graphics card specifications, Thanks to the use of ControlNet, Denoising strength can be used to 0.5 to 0.7, Yes, ControlNet is very powerful, It can increase the weight of Denoising strength a lot, Make the picture more stylized, and does not lock the seed, Choose the corresponding ControlNet Model according to your video, For example, the original video I'm using is a 3D type dance video, I use Lineart and Tile to stabilize the image and increase details, Notice! It's not the only option, You should decide the Model based on your original video and the style you want to convert it to, You can try it yourself and choose what Model to use. And use the IS-NET-pro plug-in to read the prompt of each key frame and use the mask image generated before, I also use multiple SD plugins at the same time, These plugins do not necessarily need to be used, They are also suitable for the usual text conversion pictures, cutoff plugin - can increase the color stability in the picture, lora-block-weight plugin - increase the stability of lora, adetailer plug-in - repair the collapse of the face when it is too small
  5. Try to convert the picture to see if it meets your expectations, If not, Go back to step 3.4 to modify, until you are satisfied. 3.4.5 These steps may take minutes to hours, Depends on what you want, Modify these steps back and forth to determine the length of time.
  6. After the conversion is complete, Check the images for images that vary too much, This will cause the screen to flicker and become unstable. Modify the prompt, to retransform the problematic image, (This step depends on how perfect you want your work to be, If you only want 60 to 80 points, I guess this step can be eliminated ;) This can take anywhere from a few minutes to a few hours, Depending on the number of modifications that need to be made.
  7. Use the upscale function in SD, Or image restoration software (EX: Topaz), Convert the picture back to 1080P SIZE.
  8. Continue to use the [ebsynth plugin] function, Generate the ebs file required by [ebsynth software], (Note the difference between the two! One is a plugin, The other is software, Note the difference between the two ;) ebsynth software can open multiple programs, Execute multiple ebs files at the same time, It depends on how many ebsynth software can be run simultaneously by your computer specifications.
  9. Using the ebsynth plugin again, Merge the files generated by ebsynth software, The preliminary video is done.
  10. If the background changes too much, causing excessive flickering, You can use common video editing software (Ex: Pr or CapCut), Using the cutout function, merged with the original video, alternate background, Reduce flicker. Finally, use editing software (Ex: Pr or Topaz) to supplement frames and improve image quality. (This step also depends on how perfect you want your work to be, If you only want 60 to 80 points, I guess this step can be eliminated ;) Decide according to the rendering effect you want, This could be several hours or more.

2023.06.07 14:27 autismcoe A Holistic Approach: ABA Therapy and the Importance of Collaborative Care

A Holistic Approach: ABA Therapy and the Importance of Collaborative Care
We understand the significant impact that autism spectrum disorder (ASD) can have on individuals and their families. We are dedicated to providing exceptional Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy services to support individuals with ASD in reaching their full potential. In this post, we will explore the essence of ABA Therapy and highlight the importance of collaborative care in achieving successful outcomes for individuals with autism.
A Holistic Approach: ABA Therapy and the Importance of Collaborative Care
Understanding ABA Therapy:
Applied Behavior Analysis (ABA) therapy is a scientifically proven and evidence-based approach that focuses on understanding and improving behavior. It emphasizes the analysis of behavior patterns and the implementation of effective strategies to bring about positive changes. ABA therapy is widely recognized as one of the most effective treatments for individuals with autism spectrum disorder (ASD) and is endorsed by organizations such as the American Psychological Association and the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention.
Key Components of ABA Therapy:
Assessment: A comprehensive assessment is conducted to identify the unique strengths, challenges, and goals of each individual. This assessment helps create a personalized treatment plan tailored to their specific needs.
  • Individualized Treatment Plans: ABA therapy emphasizes individualized care, as each person with autism possesses distinct strengths and challenges. Treatment plans are designed to address specific goals, such as improving communication, social skills, daily living skills, and reducing problem behaviors.
  • Positive Reinforcement: ABA therapy utilizes positive reinforcement techniques to motivate and reinforce desired behaviors. By rewarding positive behaviors, individuals with autism are encouraged to repeat those behaviors, leading to meaningful progress over time.Data Collection and Analysis: ABA therapy relies on data collection and analysis to measure progress objectively. Ongoing data tracking allows therapists and caregivers to monitor the effectiveness of interventions and make necessary adjustments to the treatment plan.
Targeted Behaviors and Goals
ABA therapy addresses a wide range of behaviors, including social deficits, communication challenges, academic skills, and adaptive behaviors. By setting measurable goals, such as increasing social interactions, improving language proficiency, or developing self-help skills, ABA therapy aims to enhance overall functioning and independence.
Importance of Collaborative Care:
Collaborative care is a fundamental aspect of our approach at AutismCOE. We recognize that a holistic and collaborative approach involving parents, caregivers, therapists, educators, and other healthcare professionals is crucial in maximizing the effectiveness of ABA therapy. Here's why collaborative care is so important:
Comprehensive Understanding: Collaborative care ensures that all stakeholders involved have a comprehensive understanding of the individual's needs, strengths, and challenges. This collective knowledge enables the development of cohesive treatment plans and consistent support across various environments.
Consistency and Generalization: By involving parents, caregivers, and educators in the therapeutic process, ABA strategies can be applied consistently across different settings, such as home, school, and community. Consistency enhances learning and generalization of skills, leading to more meaningful and lasting outcomes.
Shared Expertise: Collaboration brings together diverse perspectives and expertise. Therapists can learn from parents and caregivers who possess valuable insights into the individual's preferences, motivations, and interests. Similarly, parents and caregivers benefit from the expertise of ABA therapists, who can provide guidance and support in implementing strategies.
Support Network: Collaborative care establishes a strong support network for families. It allows them to connect with other individuals facing similar challenges, share experiences, and access additional resources and services that may be beneficial for their child's development.
Benefits of Collaborative Care
Collaborative care offers several benefits for individuals with autism. It allows for a holistic understanding of the individual's needs and promotes consistent support across different environments. By involving multiple professionals, collaborative care provides a broader range of expertise and perspectives, leading to more effective interventions and better outcomes.
We believe in the power of ABA therapy and collaborative care in transforming the lives of individuals with autism. By implementing evidence-based interventions, individualized treatment plans, and fostering collaboration among all stakeholders, we aim to provide the highest quality of care and support for individuals with ASD. Together, we can make a positive difference and help individuals with autism thrive in all aspects of their lives.

2023.06.07 14:26 Buyyours How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth

How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth
How can you figure out how much used heavy equipment is worth?
Whether you’re buying or selling, knowing how much secondhand heavy equipment is worth is critical to a successful transaction. Thousands of firms are in one of two positions. The first scenario involves a company that no longer requires a piece of heavy equipment and wants to sell it but is unsure of its true value. In the second situation, a company wishes to purchase heavy equipment without paying more than is necessary. Here’s a fast equipment value guide with all the details you’ll need, including how to assess the worth of secondhand heavy equipment.
Understanding Equipment’s Fair Market Value
Estimating the value of secondhand equipment is not as simple as it may appear. Sure, you can look on eBay or other sites to see what similar items are selling for, but that doesn’t tell you what they’re actually selling for or how long it takes for the equipment to sell in general. Getting the true worth of secondhand heavy equipment, whether it’s machine tools or tractors, is a little more difficult and necessitates insider information from someone who works in the selling of that equipment on a regular basis. Finding a used machinery dealer that is actively selling similar equipment is often the best approach to determine the true value of your machinery or equipment. In contrast to someone’s internet asking price, the dealer will be able to tell you what the market worth is today. When determining the value of, or making an offer on, your heavy equipment and machinery, they will evaluate market conditions, similar equipment available, previous auction sales, and a variety of other criteria.
What Factors Influence Heavy Equipment Prices?
Equipment values are influenced by a variety of important elements. It’s not easy to figure out how much used heavy equipment costs, but it’s a lot easier once you know what to look for.
First and foremost, you should research the typical lifespan of the piece of machinery you’re interested in. In other words, it refers to the length of one’s life. Depending on the type of equipment you’re contemplating, this is sometimes measured in years and other times in hours. Some manufacturers are known for producing high-quality equipment that can be anticipated to endure a long period, whereas lower-quality equipment wears out and breaks down much more quickly. As a result, if the piece of equipment you’re considering was badly constructed and has been in use for more than ten years, it might not be a suitable investment. On the other hand, if the machinery is in good condition and has only been used for 5 years, it could be a terrific deal.
While the predicted equipment longevity is significant, it is not the only factor to consider. If overused or exposed to the weather, even the best-built gear will break down or operate poorly. Look for indicators of environmental (exposure) damage or abuse from incorrect or excessive use when inspecting the equipment. If either is discovered, the value of the machinery plummets. The value of heavy equipment is complex, and it should be established with care. The following are some of the most common elements that influence values:
  • Age
  • Availability of like Equipment
  • Condition
  • Continued Support/Parts availability
Finally, remember to factor in the worth that thing will have to you once it is in your possession and performing the function it is capable of. You may choose to spend a little more than the market for a system that is widely available or close to your location because the benefits may greatly outweigh the expenditures.
Now that you’ve learned about some of the most significant aspects of used heavy equipment pricing, it’s time to look at how to calculate fair market value.
How do you figure out how much used heavy equipment costs?
When searching to buy secondhand heavy equipment, you’ll want to know what the fair market value is. If there are no mitigating conditions, fair market value refers to what someone would normally pay for the same object. For example, if you urgently require a forklift and there is only one available used forklift in your area, and the seller is aware of this, they may be able to offer it for a higher price. Fair market value is an estimate that refers to the equipment’s natural value and is based on the assumption that there are no extenuating conditions. Knowing the fair market value is vital if you don’t want to overpay, as you would have anticipated.
How can you figure out what an item’s fair market value is? By contacting a certified equipment appraiser, abbreviated as ‘CEA’. A professional appraiser is the best person to determine the worth of heavy equipment. Certified equipment appraisers have years of experience and know-how to accurately evaluate used machinery using all of the tools available, including past auctions, independent sales, and market demand. That is if a seller claims a piece of old equipment is worth $70,000 but a professional equipment appraiser claims it is worth closer to $50,000, trust the evaluator.
Helpful Hints
If you’re seeking to sell some secondhand heavy equipment and want to obtain the greatest price, there are a few things you can do to improve your chances.
First and foremost, you should make a concerted effort to clean the equipment and make it pristine. Clean the area surrounding it as well; the cleaner your workspace is, the better you are believed to care for your equipment, and therefore the more valuable it will appear, making any flaws less destructive to its perceived value.
You should also film the device in action and upload it to YouTube. Demonstrations are preferable to videos since they may be viewed at any time.
Make sure you understand the true worth of your machinery and the factors that influence that value. It’s critical to understand that in order to negotiate properly and win, you’ll need to know how low you can go in terms of price without harming yourself.
If you’re buying a machine or heavy equipment, you’ll need to know the same thing, because any request for a price reduction or concession should be accompanied by substantive reasoning, such as “Well, the factory no longer supports this model” or “This control is obsolete and must be upgraded before it fails in production to avoid costly downtime,” and so on. Whatever your justification for requesting a price reduction, it should be supported by a thorough understanding of the equipment and market value, never by statements like “Well, that’s just what I believe it’s worth.”
Finally, whether you’re buying or selling, the most critical element is that you interact with a qualified and reputable machine dealer.

2023.06.07 14:23 Akrylkali Advice needed for a new controller

With the release of Streetfighter 6 my interest in fighting games peaked again. I like playing Gief, but I ran into issues with my old controller. It's way too old and used for reliable inputs. So far I've been using a XBOX 360 controller with a cable and I've been pretty happy with it ( except the issues I'm having in SF6 ). Any advice on a good controller to replace my old with?
Not really interested in learning how to handle a fight stick.
Thanks in advance for your advices.
EDIT: I'd prefer using the Dpad, but right now I'm forced to use the joystick for Zangief inputs.

2023.06.07 14:20 wrossi81 Reality-Bending Mechanics

I have a system design that I've started work on, that started off as a one-shot I ran. The goal is to evoke surrealist, reality-bending worlds with a heavy nod to the work of Philip K. Dick.
The idea as I currently have it is that there are multiple distorted mirrors of reality, or Shards, that act as worlds or world-elements that the player characters move through in the game. For instance, one Shard is a dystopian police-state; another is an idyllic 1950s suburb that is kind of a preserve for psychics in an otherwise war-torn world; a third is a lunar colony. The Shards are not fully discrete or consistent, though. Reality "slips" and elements from one Shard slide into another.
Sort of the meta-goal in the game is that the PCs are being chased by mysterious forces (usually represented by police or military authorities) through these shifting realities, and uncovering hidden truths allows them to either defeat or come to some agreement with those forces.
I'm thinking of how to make this work in the game. I have several ideas currently.
  1. Using clocks, like in Apocalypse World or Blades in the Dark. Significant PC actions tick the clock. At the end, depending on the stakes, some significant feature of reality changes, or the PCs could move entirely into a different Shard.
  2. Using some pool mechanic that allows the players to retcon the world (this would probably tie in with the clocks). For instance a player could get out of a police checkpoint by finding a pass in their pocket, or by having a nearby urban guerrilla attack divert the police. This causes more strain and possibly other consequences.
  3. Each player having certain sources of stability (hat tip here for Trail of Cthulhu) that would be things in the world that would suddenly change. Someone you've known for decades doesn't recognize you, your favorite restaurant is replaced by a store you've never been to, that kind of thing. These would get marked off - possibly to grant another resource to the PC.
  4. I'm considering having something like a "master table" of surreal effects for each Shard, where either that Shard's effect could happen, or it could leak into another neighboring Shard.
I'd appreciate thoughts and ideas on how to make this work, and how to keep it surreal but playable.

2023.06.07 14:14 aminimalistmother Confused

Hey, on 2016 I lost custody of my first born. The child went to their dad on a Supervision order for a year and then a Child and Family Arrangement Order.
What does the Child and Family Arrangement Order actually mean?
His dad makes the day to day decisions BUT together, we can make the other decisions with the dad overriding them.
It says we can review supervision and contact after the first year of only being 6 x year and supervised by the PG.
Well, PG supervising didn't happen. Which I ain't happy with. But oh well I guess.
Anyway, we now have 1 x 4-6 hours a week contact and it's still supervised but with the dad. Who I don't get on with. And who accuses me of a lot of crazy BS.
I have full custody, on my own, with a 18mo. We have a SO until January. We did a year in a parent and child foster placement. We passed all the assessments. We have been home since December.
Every change (mostly mental illnesses and boundaries) they asked me to do 7 years ago, I have done.
I had a new diagnosis since and I'm proven to be fully stable.
So what can I do?
can I ask to be down as an emergency contact for school? can I ask to progress to unsupervised? neither of which, dad is allowing, because son doesn't want too.
but then, son has never not known time with me without his dad, so why would he want any difference?
any help before I fill in a c100/speak to a solicitor would be very helpful!
professional experience preferred, from a teacher or from anyone else.

2023.06.07 14:04 Aiprotsid A guide for new necro players.

Ok so, after pouring hours into this class at endgame and doing pretty much every kind of activity possible , here's what i've concluded .
First let's talk about minions:
- leveling 1-30 without sac'ing minions is more throughput than sac'ing them , as long as you're the one doing the damage ( minions are purely utility ), even though they die a lot early on it is better for them to soak up damage /threat and die while you're the one dealing the damage and then resummoning them after the fight is over ( don't waste corpses rezzing them mid fights just focus on dps).
- level range 30-70 , minions become suboptimal as you dont have paragon points or enough legendary stacking to get a proper minion build going without having them dying all the time , you also start running into issues with survivability after you step in to world tier 3, highly suggest you sac them , you can keep the golem if you choose though, it is the only minion that survives decently well on its own.
- level 70+ , you are about at the point where you should have your first paragon board filled up and if you spend the time leveling the minion glyph as high as u can you will finally have minions that don't die often and deal decent damage, although all the problems are still there: janky AI , minion run speed always lag behind you , your squishiness is now the issue rather than minions, damage outside single target feels all over the place ( literally) as you cannot control what your minions are hitting which slows u down a lot more.
And please, don't use a basic builder skill while running minion builds, just use cold mages that generate essence for u and umbral you'll never run out of essence, basic skills absolutely suck (especially decompose) and should be avoided if possible.
Now let's talk about the 3 themes of necro: blood , bone and darkness.
- Blood:
While leveling blood is strong early on as blood surge actually clears packs fast and does room wide aoe which is alright, though as you level higher that early power spike slowly diminishes , even if you have the blood surge aspect and all the other aspects setup for overpower /blood it is still the least powerful build out of any of the other options sadly, the only thing that blood pushes ahead on compared to the others is the permanent fortified and sustain.
Let's quickly talk about blood lance a bit, blood lance is a skill that has been theorycrafted to have very high dps under very specific conditions but these conditions are so tedious that it is often not worth the investment as you can have better results running an easier build like bone.
Blood lance specializes in clearing 3-5 packs of mobs, anything under or over that number will make it feel like it is undertuned and underperforming.
This build relies on PURE attack speed and should be run with a fast 1H instead of 2H, with as much AS stacked, the reason being is that you have to spam as many lances within the initial blood lance spike ( 3 sec window) , preferably 8 lances in 3 secs to guarantee the overpower, as we have multiple targets (preferably in a line) we want each consecutive blood lance to pierce through every enemy that should be lanced by the 4th cast, hence every lance after that will hit all enemies simultaneously each time it passes through a lanced target, this also works on overpower as it will overpower all of them multiple times resulting is quite a lot of burst damage towards the 3rd second.
The issues with this build though is that it is a very high APM intensive playstyle that is absolute garbage on single target and against enemies higher than the recommend lance range, as too many mobs wont let u stack lances on everything fast enough. Beware of carpal tunnel running this build.
- Bone:
Bone spear specifically is the easiest/ fastest and highest dps build for necro going from level 1-80, if you play it properly with the right aspects (umbral) you'll breeze through packs of mobs with almost no downtime, personally i'd run this build without minions as the crit/vulnerable/crit damage bonuses are too good to give up.
Bone spirit build, i see a lot of people talking about trying bone spirit cause streamers mention it all the time as the best build, and although it is the best throughput build at endgame it is very inefficient running this build under a specific endgame range, at least level 90 with properly scaled glyphs/ optimized paragons and very solid modifiers on gear with optimized stats and bis legendaries ONLY then does bone spirit become the "best" build, before that it is very lacking and often frustrating to pull off as it requires a lot of setup and bone spear is often smoother to run before that optimal endgame scenario.
- Darkness:
Overall my personal favorite theme and the most underrated path for necro, let me enlighten you so that you might see through this darkness' hidden strengths.
First, i highly recommend you enable character player highlights in the gameplay option as that will make your character glow while inside darkness clouds. This will help you see where you are and what you are doing when everything else is blind.
Darkness is a hyperscaling spec that seems weak at first but becomes a monster endgame, it's true strengths lies in the paragon node and aspects which make your dots insanely powerful the longer you are in the fight.
Darkness is the "tankiest" necro build ,even though everyone thinks blood is, the reason darkness is the tankiest is due to the damage reduction gains from DoT affected targets and the glyph, 12% from nodes and 10% stacking from the glyph's bonus , if you run without minions ( which you should) pairing this with the sac bonuses from the tree gives this path the highest damage reduction.
- Sever vs blight:
At first I tried really hard to make sever work, on paper it is meant to be used at melee range for optimal damage, as you want the mob to be hit by both the inital and final "whirl" of it's aoe, you also want to target directly behind the mob so that the spectre passes through it on the way out and back , dealing damage on both instances. Only if you do this does sever gain damage equal to that of bone spear , however it is still inferior to bone spear as it has far less vulnerability uptime and crit damage scaling, even while using the tendrils aspect.
Overall i've come to the conclusion that darkness ,being a dot scaling build , doesn't suit the crit/burst playstyle that sever offers, as such i've found that blight is the better spender even without minions.
The only instance of sever i've found to be functional was in the 1-40 level range while running full minions ( cold mages not shadow), and using sever's damage increase based on number of minions.
Still though I'd say this build is weaker than the bone spear version minion build as bone spear has perma -vulnerability uptime on everything which further boost your minions damage.

Closing thoughts ,advice and some bugs i've found while playing are :
- corpses proc'd by hewed flesh do not grant you fortify through necrotic carapace , i'm unsure whether this is a bug or intentional but i hope it is fixed to grant fortify as necro desperately need more fortify sources.
- corpses random despawn mid fight, i'm not sure if there is a max limit of # of corpses on the ground forcing newer corpses to replace older ones.
- Highly recommend using basic ability only when a specific purpose is needed for them, like reap for the guaranteed corpse for tendrils, a lot of builds do not need a spender ( especially if you're running with minions) once you acquire umbral it will solve most of your essence problems when paired with grim harvest, I see a lot of newer necros spam basics to build essence and often times over capping on it , it is a huge loss doing so.
And please for the love of whatever , stop using decompose! i cannot stress enough how bad it is, basic skills are already the weakest out of any skill we have but decompose is even worse, it forces you to stand still when you should be moving around dodging aoes etc, it only spawns a corpse AFTER 2.5 secs which is why reap is superior for corpse generation.
I feel players are blinded by the "10% minion damage" on decompose and assume its a good skill, you must know by now how random minion attacks are, they're all over the place and you cant get them to hit the same target while u decompose it. Even then you are wasting your time spamming it for minion damage when anything else you do is going to be better, having an extra skill on your bar and ditching basic skill will result in better overall performance than running decompose. It is even worse seeing people use the aspect for it , like i can't. Please do not use decompose !

Anyway, hope this was helpful for anyone searching for some answers, please lemme know if there's anything you disagree with. :)

The Art of Data Recovery: Understanding the Process and Value
Data has become the lifeblood of businesses and individuals alike. However, data loss can occur due to various reasons, such as hardware failure, accidental deletion, or malware attacks. Data recovery plays a crucial role in retrieving lost or inaccessible information and restoring peace of mind. In this article, we will explore the different types of data recovery, the recovery process, the feasibility of recovering lost data, examples of successful recoveries, the cost of data recovery, and its worthiness.

What are the types of data recovery?

Data recovery can be broadly categorized into logical recovery and physical recovery. Logical recovery focuses on retrieving lost data from logical issues such as accidental deletion, file corruption, or formatting errors. Physical recovery involves extracting data from physically damaged storage devices, such as hard drives suffering from mechanical failure or water damage.

What is the data recovery process?

The data recovery process typically involves the following steps:
  1. Evaluation: The damaged storage device is assessed to determine the cause and extent of the data loss.
  2. Repair: In physical recovery, technicians repair or replace damaged components to make the storage device functional.
  3. Imaging: A bit-by-bit copy, known as an image, is created from the damaged device to avoid further damage during the recovery process.
  4. Recovery: Specialized software tools or techniques are used to extract and reconstruct data from the image or the logically damaged device.
  5. Verification: The recovered data is carefully examined to ensure its integrity and completeness.
  6. Restoration: Finally, the recovered data is transferred to a secure storage medium or returned to the user in a usable format.

Can lost data be recovered?

In many cases, lost data can indeed be recovered successfully. The likelihood of recovery depends on various factors, including the nature of the data loss, the extent of damage, and the actions taken after the loss occurred. Timely intervention by data recovery professionals enhances the chances of successful recovery. However, it is crucial to remember that not all data losses can be fully recovered, particularly in cases of severe physical damage or overwriting of data.

What is an example of data recovery?

One notable example of data recovery is the retrieval of critical information from the wreckage of crashed aircraft’s black boxes. In such cases, specialized recovery teams employ advanced techniques to extract and analyze the data stored within the flight data recorder (FDR) and cockpit voice recorder (CVR). These efforts contribute to investigations and help improve aviation safety.

Is data recovery worth the money?

The worthiness of data recovery largely depends on the value and significance of the lost data. For businesses, the cost of recovering critical data may be justifiable, as it can save substantial financial losses, reputation damage, and legal implications. Similarly, individuals may find the recovery of cherished memories, personal documents, or sentimental files invaluable. Ultimately, the decision to invest in data recovery depends on the value attributed to the lost data and the potential consequences of not recovering it.

Why is data recovery so expensive?

Data recovery can be expensive due to several reasons:
  1. Specialized Equipment: Data recovery providers invest in sophisticated hardware and software tools designed to handle complex recovery scenarios.
  2. Expertise and Experience: Skilled data recovery professionals undergo extensive training and possess in-depth knowledge of various storage systems, file systems, and recovery techniques.
  3. Cleanroom Facilities: Physical recovery often requires the use of cleanroom environments to protect delicate storage media from further damage. Maintaining these facilities incurs additional costs.
  4. Research and Development: Data recovery companies continually invest in research and development to stay at the forefront of technology and develop innovative recovery methods.
  5. Time and Resources: The data recovery process can be time-consuming, requiring meticulous effort and attention to detail. The cost reflects the effort involved in recovering data successfully.

Can you still recover data if your hard drive is corrupted?

Data recovery from a corrupted hard drive is indeed possible, although the success rate and ease of recovery depend on the extent and nature of the corruption. In many cases, the data stored on a corrupted hard drive can still be retrieved with the help of specialized tools and techniques employed by professional data recovery services. These experts have the knowledge and resources to handle complex situations and extract data from damaged storage media.

How do I recover data from a corrupted or crashed hard drive?

Recovering data from a corrupted or crashed hard drive requires careful steps to maximize the chances of success. Here is a general outline of the process:
a. Assess the situation: Determine the nature and extent of the corruption or crash. Identify any physical damage to the hard drive, such as clicking noises or inability to spin.
b. Safeguard the drive: If the hard drive is still functional but experiencing corruption, immediately make a backup or create an image of the drive. This step helps prevent further data loss during the recovery process.
c. Professional data recovery: For severe cases or when dealing with physical damage, it is recommended to seek professional data recovery services. These experts have specialized tools and cleanroom facilities to handle physically damaged drives and employ advanced techniques to recover data.
d. DIY recovery attempts: If the corruption is minor and the drive is still accessible, you can attempt some DIY recovery steps. These include using data recovery software designed for corrupted drives or employing command-line tools to repair file system errors. However, exercise caution and avoid further damage to the drive.

Who can recover data from a dead hard drive?

Recovering data from a dead hard drive, especially one experiencing physical failure, requires the expertise of professional data recovery specialists. These specialists possess the necessary skills, tools, and cleanroom facilities to handle dead drives and extract data from them. Data recovery companies specialize in dealing with various types of drive failures, including mechanical issues, water damage, and electrical failures. It is advisable to choose a reputable and experienced data recovery service with a track record of successful recoveries.

Where can I fix a corrupted hard drive?

When it comes to fixing a corrupted hard drive, professional data recovery services are your best option. These services are equipped to handle a wide range of data loss scenarios and have the expertise to repair and recover data from corrupted drives. Reputable data recovery companies offer diagnostics, evaluation, and repair services for both logical and physical issues. They can also provide guidance on whether data recovery is feasible and offer solutions tailored to your specific situation.
It is essential to research and choose a reliable data recovery service provider in kenya with a strong reputation and positive customer reviews.


Data recovery serves as a lifeline in the face of unexpected data loss. Understanding the types of data recovery, the recovery process, feasibility, and cost considerations empowers individuals and businesses to make informed decisions. While the expense of data recovery can be significant, the potential value and peace of mind that comes with retrieving invaluable information often make it a worthwhile investment.

2023.06.07 14:01 EdMarCarSe "Great Anti-Imperialist Revolutionary Cause of Asian, African and Latin American Peoples Is Invincible", The Treatise published on the cccasion of the first anniversary of the death of Che Guevara in battle in the Eighth Issue of Tricontinental - by Kim Il Sung, October 8 of 1968. [PDF]
It is nearly a year now since Comrade Ernesto Che Guevara, an indomitable revolutionary fighter and a true internationalist champion bom of the Latin American people, died a heroic death on the battlefield of Bolivia. The Korean people, together with the revolutionary peoples throughout the world, are commemorating the first anniversary of the passing away of Comrade Che Guevara, with a burning hatred for the enemy and in deep grief.
Che Guevara took the path of the sacred struggle to bring freedom and liberation to the peoples, holding aloft the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle early in his youthhood, and devoted his whole life to the revolutionary cause of the oppressed peoples.
Over a long period up to now since the curtain rose upon the prelude to the bloodstained history of modern bourgeoisie, in which the exploitation camouflaged by medieval religious and political illusions was replaced by a naked, shameless, direct and cruel one and man's dignity turned into an exchange value, numerous Communists and revolutionary fighters on the globe have shed their blood and laid down their lives in the midst of the revolutionary tempest to sweep away all that is obsolete and corrupt and reorganize the whole structure of society in a revolutionary way, to overthrow the upper strata of that cursed old society and prepare the cradle of free and happy, new society. Che Guevara dedicated his precious life to this sacred struggle and thus became an honourable member of the ranks of world revolutionary martyrs.
Che Guevara was an indefatigable revolutionary who was tireless in struggle and a true internationalist champion who was completely free from narrow nationalist sentiments. Throughout his life he showed a fine example of a steadfast revolutionary fighter and real internationalist.
Along with the Cuban revolutionaries led by Comrade Fidel Castro, Che Guevara unfolded a heroic armed struggle, thereby contributing greatly to crushing U.S. imperialism and the dictatorial regime of Batista, its lackey, and attaining the triumph of the Cuban Revolution. In 1965 Che Guevara, burning with revolutionary zeal, left the triumphant land of Cuba to move the arena of his struggle to a new outpost where manifold difficulties and stern trials awaited him. Everywhere he went in Latin America, he organized and mobilized the masses of the people to armed struggles against U.S. imperialism and its minions and fought bravely to the last moment of his life in the forefront.
The revolutionary activities of Che Guevara made a tremendous contribution to further consolidating the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and stepping up the advancement of the Latin American revolution as a whole.
The triumph of the Cuban Revolution is the first victory of the socialist revolution in Latin America and a continuation of the Great October Revolution in Latin America. With the Cuban Revolution emerging victorious, the Red banner of socialism now flies high over Latin America which was regarded as a hereditary estate of U.S. imperialism only until recently, and the socialist camp has extended to the Western Hemisphere and grown in strength a great deal. Today the Republic of Cuba which marches on firmly in the forefront of the Latin American revolution is the lighthouse of hope for the fighting Latin American peoples and throws the rays of victory on the road of their struggle. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution shook the colonial system of the U.S. imperialists to its very foundation in the Western Hemisphere and has thrown the whole Latin America into a revolutionary tempest, forcefully arousing the peoples in this area to the sacred struggle for independence and freedom. The triumph of the Cuban Revolution signified, indeed, the beginning of the disintegration of the U.S. imperialist system of colonial rule in Latin America, the stern judgment on U.S. imperialism which had exploited and oppressed the peoples in this area for a long period and its condemnation to ruin.
Consolidation of the triumph of the Cuban Revolution is not only an important problem which decides the life and death, the rise and fall of the Cuban people but also a key problem which sways the destinies of the general development of the Latin American revolution.
Revolution begins with brilliant successes in one country but undergoes a considerable period of painful throes. The countries whose proletariat has grasped power in the encirclement of international capitalism are not free from the danger of imperialist aggression and restoration of capitalism during the entire historical period of revolutionary transition from capitalism to socialism. The overthrown exploiting classes always attempt to recover their lost positions and foreign imperialists incessantly engage in armed invasion and intrigues and manoeuvres for political and ideological subversion.
The U.S. imperialists and the reactionaries of Latin America deeply hate and fear the very existence of the Republic of Cuba and are manoeuvring stubbornly and maliciously to stifle it. They are working hard to get rid of the Cuban Revolution so as to drive out the "spectre" of Communism haunting the Western Hemisphere and check the liberation struggle of the peoples which envelops Latin America like a prairie fire. While scheming to strangle Cuba by directly mobilizing then- armed forces, the U.S. imperialists are instigating the reactionary Latin American regimes of dictatorship under their domination and subjugation to bring political and economic pressure to bear upon Cuba in order to suffocate her with the policy of blockade.
For the attainment of the ultimate victory of the revolution, the peoples who have gained power in the encirclement of international capital, while reinforcing their own internal forces in every way, should receive solid support from other detachments of the world socialist revolution and should receive broad international assistance from the working classes of all lands and the oppressed peoples of the whole world. In other words, revolutions should take place consecutively in the majority of countries of the world, in several adjacent countries at the least, to replace imperialist encirclement with socialist encirclement, the barriers of imperialism that surround a socialist country should be torn down to open the path of turning the dictatorship of the proletariat into a world-wide system and an end should be put to the isolation of the socialist fortress of one country in the encirclement to form the strong ties of militant solidarity of the international working classes and the oppressed peoples of the world. Only then will it be possible to prevent completely armed intervention by the imperialists and their attempt to restore capitalism, and say that the ultimate victory of socialism has been secured.
As the forces of capital are international, so the liberation struggle of the peoples is an international movement. The revolutionary movements in individual countries are national movements, and constitute part of the world revolution at the same time. The revolutionary struggles of the peoples in all countries have the relationship of supporting and complementing each other and join together in one stream of world revolution. The revolution which has emerged victorious should assist the revolutions of those countries which are not yet triumphant with its experiences and examples and render active support to the liberation struggle of the world's peoples with its political, economic and military power, while the peoples in the countries which have not yet won the revolutions should struggle more actively to defend the victorious revolutions of other countries against the imperialist policy of strangulation and hasten victory for their own revolutions. This is the law of the development of the world revolutionary movement and the excellent tradition already formed in the course of the people's liberation struggle.
The Cuban Revolution is an organic part of the world revolution and, particularly, constitutes the decisive link in the chain of the revolution in Latin America. To defend the Cuban Revolution and to consolidate and follow up its victories is not only the duty of the Cuban people but also the internationalist obligation of the oppressed peoples of Latin America and all the revolutionary peoples of the world. Just as the defence of the gains of the October Revolution in Russia which made the first breach in the world capitalist system was an important question decisive of the fate of the development of the world revolution, so the defence of the gains of the Cuban Revolution which made the first breach in the colonial system of U.S. imperialism in Latin America is an important question decisive of the fate of the Latin American revolution.
It is of great importance for the defence of the Cuban Revolution to advance the revolutionary movement in those Latin American countries neighbouring on Cuba. If the fierce flames of revolution flare up in many countries of Latin America where U.S. imperialism sets foot, the force of U.S. imperialism will be dispersed and sapped as much and the attempts of the U.S. imperialists and their lackeys to strangle Cuba by concentrated force will inevitably fall through. Further, if the revolution emerges victorious in some other Latin American countries, Cuba will get out of the encircling ring of imperialism with which she is confronted on all sides, there will be opened up a favourable phase in the revolutions of Cuba and Latin America, and the world revolution will be stepped up still more.
For a revolution to take place, the subjective and objective situation should be created for it. The revolution in each country should be carried out to suit the specific realities, in which the objective revolutionary situation is created. This, however, by no means signifies that the revolution can develop or ripen of itself. The revolution can always be advanced and brought to maturity only through an active and hard struggle of the revolutionaries. If an active struggle is neglected, only waiting for a favourable situation to arise by reason of the arduousness of the revolution, revolutionary forces cannot be fostered. Revolutionary forces cannot be prepared spontaneously without any struggle, they can be fostered and strengthened only through a hard struggle. If preparations are not made to meet the decisive hour of the revolution by preserving the revolutionary forces against the enemy's suppression and, at the same time, constantly accumulating and building them up through a positive struggle, it will be impossible to win victory in the revolution even when the objective situation has been created. To turn away from the revolution on the pretext of avoiding sacrifices is in fact tantamount to forcing the people to remain in lifelong slavery to capital, forcing them to tolerate for ever the cruel exploitation and oppression, unbearable maltreatment and humiliation, enormous sufferings and sacrifices. In general the acute pain experienced at a revolutionary turning-point is always much easier to endure than the chronic pain caused by the ulcers of old society. The social revolution cannot be achieved as easily as proceeding along a royal road in full daylight, nor can it progress as smoothly as a boat sailing before the wind. On the path of revolution, there may be rough thorny bushes and turns and twists, and there may be temporary setbacks and partial sacrifices. To flinch before difficulties and to hesitate in the revolution for fear of sacrifices is not the attitude befitting a revolutionary.
It is the task for the revolutionaries of each country to lay down a scientifically-motivated, careful way of struggle on the basis of a correct assessment of the internal and external situation and a proper calculation of the balance of forces between friend and foe, accumulate and build up the revolutionary forces by rearing the nuclear elements and awakening the masses of the people in the trying crucible of the revolution, unfolding an active struggle and yet going around the snags and avoiding unnecessary sacrifices at ordinary times, and make full preparations to meet the great revolutionary event. And once the revolutionary situation is created, they should not miss the opportunity to rise without delay in a showdown to shatter the reactionary regime.
The forms and methods of revolutionary struggle, too, are determined not by the wishes of individuals, but on all accounts by the subjective and objective situation created and the resistance of the reactionary ruling classes. The revolutionaries should stand prepared for all forms of struggle, and should effectively advance the revolutionary movement by properly combining various forms and methods of struggle such as political and economic struggles, violent and nonviolent struggles, legal and illegal struggles.
Counter-revolutionary violence is an indispensable means of rule for all exploiting classes. Human history not yet knows an instance of any ruling class submissively turning over its supremacy, or an instance of any reactionary class meekly waiving its power without resorting to counter-revolutionary violence. In particular, the imperialists cling ever more desperately to violent means to maintain their rule as they approach nearer to their doom. The imperialists, while suppressing the peoples of their own countries, check all the revolutionary advance of the oppressed nations in a sanguinary way with their military forces for aggression and plunder against other countries.
In these conditions, the liberation struggle of the oppressed peoples cannot emerge victorious without using revolutionary violence to crush foreign imperialists and overthrow the reactionary dictatorial machinery of the exploiting classes at home that work hand in glove with them. It is imperative to meet violence with violence and crush counter-revolutionary armed forces with revolutionary armed forces. The revolutionary flames now raging furiously in Latin America are the natural outcome of the revolutionary situation created in this area.
The absolute majority of the Latin American countries have been placed under the complete domination and bondage of U.S. imperialism. Pro-U.S. dictatorships have been established in many Latin American countries and the economy of these countries has been turned completely into an appendage to the U.S. monopolies. The U.S. imperialists' policy of aggression and plunder towards Latin America constitutes the major fetters impeding social progress in this area, and has plunged its peoples in unbearable mishaps and distress. The U.S. imperialists and the pro-U.S. dictatorships in Latin America extensively set up various repressive apparatuses including the army and police and suppress all forms of revolutionary advance of the people in a most brutal way.
It is obvious that unless the ill-clad and hungry, oppressed and humiliated people in Latin America bravely rise in arms in the struggle against the oppressors, they cannot attain freedom and liberation.
It is quite justifiable and admirable that under the banner of proletarian internationalism, under the banner of anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle, Che Guevara, together with Latin American revolutionaries, unfolded an active, heroic revolutionary struggle in various Latin American countries with arms in his hands in defiance of sacrifice in order to defend the Cuban Revolution and hasten the day of liberation for the oppressed peoples in this area. The revolutionary peoples of the whole world express deep sympathy with the brave act of Che Guevara who waged a heroic armed struggle together with Latin American revolutionaries. The brilliant example of Che Guevara is a paragon not only for the Latin American peoples in their revolutionary struggle but for the Asian and African peoples in their liberation struggle, and inspires them to heroic exploits.
Che .Guevara is not with us now. But the blood he shed will never be wasted. His name and the everlasting revolutionary exploits he performed will go down for ever in the history of liberation of mankind and his lofty revolutionary spirit will be immortal. There will appear thousands of, tens of thousands of Che Guevaras on the scene of decisive battle in the revolutionary struggle in Asia, Africa and Latin America, and the revolutionary cause which he left unaccomplished will surely be achieved by the struggle of the Latin American revolutionaries and the revolutionary peoples the world over.
Today Asia, Africa and Latin America have become the most fierce anti-imperialist front. Imperialism has met with the strong resistance of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples and suffered the heaviest blows from them. Nevertheless, imperialism is desperately trying to maintain its old footing and regain its lost positions in those areas.
The cause of liberation of the peoples in Asia, Africa and Latin America has not been completed. So long as imperialism exists on the globe and oppresses and plunders the people, the people cannot leave off the anti-imperialist struggle even a moment. The struggle must continue till all shades of colonialism are wiped off the face of the earth once and for all, till all the oppressed and humiliated nations build their independent states and achieve social progress and national- prosperity.
Imperialism will never give up its rule over colonial and dependent countries before it is kicked out. It is in the nature of imperialism to perpetrate aggression and plunder. If there ever is imperialism which is not aggressive, it is no longer imperialism. Imperialism will not change its aggressive nature before it dies. That is why one should dispel all illusions about imperialism and fight it out. Only when a. principled stand is maintained against imperialism and a staunch anti-imperialist struggle intensified, can the oppressed nations win freedom and independence and the liberated peoples check imperialist aggression, consolidate national independence and achieve prosperity for their countries and nations.
U.S. imperialism is the most barbarous and most heinous imperialism of modern times, and it is the chieftain of world imperialism. It is not the Asian and Latin American countries or the African countries alone that have their sovereignty and territories infringed upon by U.S. imperialism or are under the menace of U.S. imperialist aggression. There is no place on the earth to which U.S. imperialism has not stretched out its tentacles of aggression, and where U.S. imperialism sets foot the people always shed blood. The U.S. imperialists pursue the invariable aim to put the whole world under their control. It is to realize this aim that the U.S. imperialists incessantly perpetrate armed invasion and subversive activities against the socialist and newly-independent countries, and brutally suppress the liberation struggle of the peoples of Asia, Africa and Latin America. This wild aggressive design of U.S. imperialism must be frustrated decisively. It is clear that world peace cannot be safeguarded, nor can national liberation and independence or the victory of democracy and socialism be achieved, apart from the struggle against U.S. imperialism. To fight U.S. imperialism is the inescapable common duty and the first and foremost revolutionary task for all the peoples of the world.
For the successful defeat of U.S. imperialism, it is necessary to penetrate into its world strategy thoroughly.
The basic strategy of U.S. imperialism for world aggression at the present stage is to destroy by force of arms the small and divided revolutionary socialist countries and newly- independent countries one by one, while refraining from worsening its relations with big powers and shunning confrontation with them as far as possible and to intensify ideological and political offensive against, and subvert from within, those countries which are weak ideologically and not willing to make revolution but spread illusion about imperialism among the people clamouring only for unprincipled coexistence with imperialism, and desire to live on good terms with imperialism.
On the basis of this world strategy, the U.S. imperialists are increasing their armaments extensively and further reinforcing their military bases and aggressive military alliances to attack the socialist and the progressive countries. The U.S. imperialists have openly embarked on "local war" and "special war" in Viet Nam and some other places, while preparing total war and nuclear war on a large scale.
Simultaneously with this, the U.S. imperialists resort to a new form of cold war to encourage "liberalization" and "democratic development" in certain countries, while running wild to bribe and make a cat's-paw of the cowards within the ranks of the working-class movement who are afraid of revolution. They clamour for the "most favoured nation" treatment and the expansion of the "East-West contact and interchange" and, with this as a means, seek to infiltrate their reactionary ideology and culture to degrade the peoples ideologically, hamper economic development and thus undermine those countries from within. The imperialists are carrying out sabotage and subversive intrigues to tear the newly- independent states away from the anti-imperialist front one by one. While resorting to force overtly, they penetrate into the newly-independent countries with "aid" as a bait and meddle in their internal affairs. The U.S. imperialists whip together the right-wing reactionaries and pit them against the progressive forces, and seek to sway certain newly-independent countries to the road of counter-revolution.
Namely, wielding an olive branch in one hand and arrows in the other, the U.S. imperialists manoeuvre to swallow up the revolutionary countries one by one through armed aggression and subvert the ideologically weak countries through ideological and cultural aggression, combining nuclear blackmail with "peaceful penetration" and repression with appeasement and deception.
The peoples of the whole world should maintain sharpest vigilance against such intrigues and manoeuvres by U.S. imperialism and should be fully prepared to counter enemy's possible aggression of all forms.
In order to develop the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle vigorously, it is important to cement to the maximum the militant unity of all areas, all countries, all parties, all people and all forces opposing imperialism.
The revolutionary struggles of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples go on closely linked with each other for the community of their desires and aspirations. When Latin America groans under imperialist yoke, the Asian and African peoples cannot live in peace and when U.S. imperialism collapses in the Asian and African areas, a favourable phase will be created for the national-liberation movement of the Latin American peoples, too. The militant unity and close ties of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples will multiply the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. revolutionary forces several times, scores of times and will become an invincible force which can frustrate successfully the aggression of the imperialists and the united front of international reaction. Therefore, the peoples in all regions where U.S. imperialism is entrenched should pool their strength and strike it hard.
In Asia, Africa and Latin America there are socialist and neutral countries, and big and small countries. All these countries except the puppet regimes of the imperialists and their satellite states constitute anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. forces. Despite the differences of state socio-political systems, political views and religious beliefs, the peoples of the countries in these areas, as the oppressed nations who were suppressed and exploited by the imperialists and colonialists, have the common goal and aspiration to achieve national independence and national prosperity against imperialism and old and new colonialism. The differences of state socio-political systems, political views or religious beliefs can by no means be an obstacle in the way of joint struggle against U.S. imperialism. All countries should form an anti-imperialist united front and take anti-U.S. joint action to crush the common enemy and attain the common goal.
True, there may be various categories of people among those who oppose imperialism. Some may be active against imperialism, others may vacillate in the anti-imperialist struggle, and still others may join in the anti-imperialist struggle reluctantly under the pressure from their own people and the peoples of the world. But, whatever their motives, it is necessary to enlist all these forces except the henchmen of imperialism in the anti-U.S. joint struggle. If more forces, though inconsistent and unsteady, are drawn into the anti-U.S. joint struggle to isolate U.S. imperialism to the largest possible extent and deal blows to it by joint action, that will be a good thing and by no means a bad thing. Those who avoid the anti-imperialist struggle should be induced to turn out in the struggle against imperialism and those who are passive encouraged to be positive in the anti-imperialist struggle. To split the anti-U.S. united front or reject the anti-U.S. joint action will only bring a serious consequence of weakening the anti-imperialist, anti-U.S. struggle.
To fight down U.S. imperialism, all countries, big and small, should strike blows at U.S. imperialism. Particularly important here is that small countries in Asia, Africa and Latin America should give up flunkeyism tended to rely on big powers and take an active part in the anti-U.S. struggle. It is wrong to think that U.S. imperialism cannot be beaten down unless big countries fight it. It would be better certainly if big countries join small countries in fighting against U.S. imperialism. That is why small countries should endeavour to unite with big countries. But, this is by no means to say that no country, unless it is big, can fight and defeat U.S. imperialism. It is too obvious that one cannot make revolution if he depends on big countries and sits idle and that others cannot make revolution for him. Even small countries can defeat big enemy, once they establish Juche, unite the masses of the people and valiantly rise in battle despite sacrifice. This is a very plain truth of our times which has been borne out by actual life.
The experience of the Korean war proved this truth, and the triumph of the Cuban Revolution and the heroic war of resistance of the Vietnamese people against U.S. imperialism and for national salvation have proved this truth.
Moreover, when many countries, though small, pool their strength to fight imperialism, the peoples will be able to beat the enemy however strong he may be, with a decisively overwhelming force. The peoples of the countries making revolution should join efforts to tear left and right arms from U.S, imperialism, tear off its left and right legs and behead it eventually everywhere it stretches out its crooked hands of aggression. The U.S. imperialists are bluffing now, but when the revolutionary peoples of the world join in mutilating them, the U.S. imperialists will become impotent and bite the dust in the end. We small nations should unite and counter the strategy of U.S. imperialism to swallow us up one by one, each chopping off its head and limbs. Such, it can be said, is the strategy of struggle for small countries to defeat U.S. imperialism.
The Korean people have fought against the occupation of South Korea by the U.S. imperialists and for the unification of the country for more than 20 years. The Korean Revolution is part of the international revolutionary movement, and the revolutionary/struggle of the Korean people is developing amid the joint struggle of the peoples of the whole world for peace and democracy, for national independence and socialism. The Korean people are fighting to accomplish their cause of national liberation and, at the same time, are doing everything in their power to accelerate the advancement of the international revolutionary movement as a whole. Our people unite with all forces opposing U.S. imperialism and consistently support the peoples of all the countries in their struggle against U.S. imperialism. We regard it as an important factor in bringing victory to the Korean Revolution.
Imperialism is a moribund force whose days are numbered, whereas the liberation struggle of the peoples is a new force which aspires for the progress of mankind. There may be uncountable difficulties and obstacles and various turns and twists on the way of the liberation struggle of the peoples, but it is the inevitable law of the development of history that imperialism is doomed to ruin and the liberation struggle of the peoples is sure to be crowned with victory. Though the imperialists headed by U.S. imperialism are running amuck in an attempt to check the surging liberation struggle of the peoples, it is nothing but the death-bed tremor of those who are condemned to destruction. The more frenziedly the U.S. imperialists act, the more difficult their position becomes. U.S. imperialism is going downhill and confronted with the fate of a setting sun. The U.S. imperialists will definitely be forced out of Asia, Africa and Latin America by the liberation struggle of the peoples. The great anti-imperialist revolutionary cause of the Asian, African and Latin American peoples is invincible.

System Decommissioning: Streamlining Your IT Infrastructure
In the ever-evolving landscape of technology, businesses often find themselves managing a complex web of IT systems. Over time, certain systems become outdated, redundant, or no longer serve a purpose, leading to unnecessary maintenance costs and potential security risks. System decommissioning is a strategic process that allows businesses to retire and remove these obsolete systems, streamlining their IT infrastructure and optimizing resources. In this article, we will explore the benefits of system decommissioning and outline the key steps involved in the decommissioning process.
Index of Points 1. Understanding System Decommissioning 2. Benefits of System Decommissioning 3. Key Steps in System Decommissioning 4. Ensuring Data Security and Compliance 5. Partnering with AvenDATA for Successful System Decommissioning
1. Understanding System Decommissioning
System decommissioning involves the planned retirement and removal of outdated or unnecessary IT systems from an organization’s infrastructure. This process typically includes the identification, analysis, and elimination of systems that are no longer in use, no longer supported, or have been replaced by newer technologies.
2. Benefits of System Decommissioning
System decommissioning offers several benefits to organizations:
- Cost Optimization: Decommissioning outdated systems eliminates maintenance costs, license fees, and hardware expenses associated with supporting and operating these systems. This frees up valuable resources that can be redirected towards more strategic initiatives. - Enhanced Security: Retiring obsolete systems reduces the attack surface and potential vulnerabilities in your IT environment. By removing outdated software and hardware, you minimize the risk of security breaches and data leaks. - Improved Efficiency: Streamlining your IT infrastructure by decommissioning unnecessary systems leads to simplified operations, increased system performance, and improved overall efficiency. - Regulatory Compliance: Decommissioning systems that are no longer in use helps organizations comply with data protection and privacy regulations by reducing the amount of sensitive data they need to manage and secure.
3. Key Steps in System Decommissioning
To successfully decommission a system, organizations can follow these key steps:
Step 1: System Inventory and Assessment: Create an inventory of all systems in your IT landscape and assess their current status, usage, and relevance. Identify systems that are no longer needed or have suitable replacements.
Step 2: Data Analysis and Migration: Analyze the data stored in the system slated for decommissioning. Identify critical data that needs to be migrated to other systems or archived for compliance and historical purposes. Develop a plan for data migration or archival.
Step 3: Stakeholder Communication: Inform relevant stakeholders, such as end-users, IT teams, and management, about the decommissioning process. Communicate the reasons behind the decommissioning and the potential impact on business operations.
Step 4: System Retirement and Removal: Safely retire the system by following proper protocols. This may include shutting down the system, removing hardware components, disabling user access, and disposing of hardware in an environmentally responsible manner.
Step 5: Documentation and Knowledge Transfer: Document the decommissioning process, including the steps taken, data migration details, and any relevant information for future reference. Transfer knowledge to IT staff and end-users to ensure a smooth transition.
4. Ensuring Data Security and Compliance
During system decommissioning, organizations must prioritize data security and compliance. This includes:
- Secure Data Removal: Ensure that all sensitive data is securely removed or transferred to appropriate systems following industry-standard data sanitization techniques. - Data Archival: Preserve necessary data for compliance and historical purposes by archiving it in a secure and accessible manner. - Compliance Audits: Conduct compliance audits to verify that all regulatory requirements have been met during the decommissioning process.

In recent years, businesses such as accounting and CPA firms ( that are heavily reliant on skilled professionals have faced significant challenges in attracting and retaining talent. The consequences of talent shortages are straightforward but impactful: they impede business growth. According to PwC, approximately 25% of CEOs have had to cancel or postpone critical strategic initiatives in the past year due to a lack of qualified personnel.
Fortunately, there is time to address this issue proactively. Let's explore a few strategies firm owners can employ to navigate the skills shortage and benefit their businesses and financial performance.
**An overview of the worldwide shortage of accounting talent:**
There is a notable global talent shortage, which has reached its highest level in 16 years across various industries. The ongoing phenomenon known as the "Great Resignation (" shows no signs of slowing down.
The ManpowerGroup's ( 2022 Global Talent Shortage Survey has identified the most challenging skills to find in today's job market, and it reveals that accounting and finance positions (such as certified accountants, auditors, and financial analysts) rank among the top seven most challenging roles to fill globally. Moreover, these roles are anticipated to be the second-most in-demand positions in over 40 countries in the upcoming quarters.
**The origins of this talent shortage can be attributed to two primary factors**
The two primary drivers affecting the talent shortage in the accounting industry are: **technological advancements** and **evolving needs**.
**1. Technological Advancements:**
In the past, the primary requirement for accounting firms was the ability to perform numerical calculations. However, with technological advancements, this requirement has evolved. Today, applications and automation can process numbers significantly faster than any human worker.
Consequently, accounting firms are now seeking candidates who possess a greater ability to derive meaning, identify trends, and detect patterns in data. Moreover, these candidates should be able to apply their findings within a broader business context.
This shift in demand highlights the increasing importance of data science and analytics skills, which accounting professionals may have yet to develop extensively due to limited time and resources.
**2. Evolving Needs:**
In today's job market, candidates have clear preferences regarding their desired positions. While competitive compensation and benefits are undoubtedly important factors, the findings of the Manpower ( indicate that candidates are more likely to accept a job offer and remain committed if the role also provides flexibility, a sense of purpose, and personalized opportunities.
Additionally, candidates value access to career insights, educational support, diverse experiences, and exposure to new opportunities as significant considerations in their decision-making process.
Indeed, it is possible to address the talent shortage by understanding employee needs and effectively meeting them. By doing so, accounting firms can combat the loss of valuable talent and gain an advantage in the ongoing competition for skilled professionals. While finding a balance may require compromises, the long-term benefits are rewarding.
**1. Objective:**
To provide employees with a meaningful sense of purpose, being transparent and genuine about your organization's mission is essential. Clearly communicate this mission on your website, through marketing materials, and during candidate interviews.
**2. Upskilling/Training:**
According to the Manpower (, *“81% of employees expect training programs from their employers to help keep skills up to date”*. Meeting this expectation increases the likelihood of retaining employees in the long term, providing your firm with greater confidence in retaining the skills it has invested in through training and development.
**3. Adaptability:**
In 2020, a significant shift towards remote work took place, leading professionals to recognize the time saved from commuting and the increased autonomy over their schedules. Candidates are expected to inquire about job flexibility during interviews, seeking a clear response that can ideally meet the needs of both parties involved. Therefore, it is crucial to have a well-prepared response that can address these inquiries and satisfy the mutual requirements.
**4. Company ethos:**
Take a moment to contemplate how outsiders perceive your firm. If you were to assess it objectively, what would your conclusion be? The stereotype of buttoned-up professionals often characterizes how accounting firms are viewed.
While elements of formality may still exist in many firms, the importance of image must be considered in a highly competitive market. It is crucial to tailor your firm's image and proudly display your brand, effectively conveying the authentic experience of working within your organization. This approach allows you to differentiate yourself and attract top talent.
Employees are no longer just working for a 9-5 paycheck. They want to work with a brand that they believe in. Understanding how to make the most of your brand can make the difference when it comes to attracting and retaining team members.
**5. Feedback:**
Recognize the significant impact of offering regular feedback to your staff, as it holds great importance to them. People have a natural desire to be heard and acknowledged. According to ClearCompany (, global talent management specialists, employees who receive regular feedback and performance reviews become up to three times more engaged in their company. Furthermore, their survey reveals that engaged individuals are 87% less likely to leave the organization. Hence, prioritizing regular feedback can enhance employee engagement and significantly reduce turnover rates.
**6. Offshore accounting:**
Alternatively, you can leverage the services of an offshore staffing provider like Entigrity to access qualified offshore talent with minimal hassle.

2023.06.07 13:43 earthdiggingdragon Opinions on the modules for my personal project - a basic Invoice App.

Greetings Devs,
As a personal portfolio project, I am working on an Invoice App. Below is the list of all the modules in which the app is divided. Can you please let me know whether the modularization is good enough?
Note - I am learning how to create use case diagrams so that I can showcase the use cases in a more presentable way.



Responsible for managing customers belonging to a user’s business. User can view, search/filter, add, edit, archive (soft delete) a customer. There is a sub-module to manage customer’s contact agents (M2M relationship between Contact Agents and Customers). Along with this user can manage Credit and Payment terms for each customer. Customers can be tagged on the basis of user-defined tags. A sub-module to manage customer’s account is responsible to view and manage customer’s trade with the user so far. Additional terms and conditions can be customized in this module.


Responsible for products that user’s business catalogs. User can view, search/filter, add, edit, archive (soft delete) a product. A Pricing and Discounts sub-module will be responsible to manage each product’s price. Each product can have a system level price or have a customer’s level special price, where customer specific price will always be prefered over system price. Products can also have additional discounts, based on [undecided factors]. Analytics submodule will show products’s analytics.


Responsible for creating and managing and tracking quotations or pro-forma invoices for the user’s business. User can view, search/filter, create, edit, archive (soft delete), track, send, download the quotation. Upon successful acceptance by the customer, quotation/PI can be converted directly into an invoice that the user can then manage in the invoice module. Quotation can be saved as a draft (no version tracking) or can be updated (version tracked) multiple times and each version is accessible at any time. Any discounts can be added/removed at quotation level. Quotation line items can be managed individually. Terms and conditions can also be customized at quotation level. Quotations can tracked (using various progress status) and reminder notifications can be set that will be visible in the notification area.


Responsible for creating and managing tax invoices. Tax invoices are the documents which against with the payment is to be made to the user from customer. Furthermore, credit and payment terms will decide the actual method and time of the payment of an issued tax invoice. There are multiple ways in which a Tax invoice can be generated.
For instance,
Invoices can also be tracked and reminders can be set for late payments. Invoice line items can be managed individually.
How to create consistency between invoice and quotation is yet to be tackled. For example, when a quotation is accepted by the customer and succesfully converted to invoice, upon any change in the invoice like line item, how can the consistency be ensured between the agreed upon quotation and the recently ammended invoice?


Responsible for tracking all the payments done against the tax invoices. User can view, search/filter, or manage previous transactions in this module. New transcations will be entered at an invoice level and that has to be done in the invoice module. This module also has an analytics sub-module which will display [not yet decided] analytics of all the transactions done so far.

This is actually the third version (backend) of the app I am working on. The source code for the second version is here.
I am a fresher who wants to build something meaningful to put it in my portfolio while challenging myself to learn things in addition to writing code. Any advice, suggestion, opinions, or constructive criticism are more than welcome.

2023.06.07 13:40 Sameguy789 34 [M4F] #Inverness,Scotland - Looking for that quiet, sexually explorative nerd. Let's share our hobbies, romance and lots of kinks!

A little about me:
I am 5"9', brown hair, hazel eyes and my build could be described as strong with some softness for aftercare or cuddling. I am looking for that woman, who shares hobbies, interests, and well...kinks with me and I am unsure what I want to get out of it relationship wise, however I do know that eventually I would like to meet the person who talks me to me after at least a friendship and comradery is built. Trust is very important to me, I will share myself but not show my face immediately so I have to build that trust up first. If you feel the same and enjoy sharing yourself the same way I do then I think we will get on swimmingly. I go to the gym 4 days a week as well. If you want to know more, about me, just ask!

Kinks -
Breeding - This I feel is a super common one from my perspective, and I do love it especially the higher the risk of impregnation. Begging to be bred is even better...
Gentle/Pleasure Dom - There isn't really a term that I would use to describe my type of Dominating without cringing but being a pleasure Dom is as close as I can get to how I play with my subs.
Public or high risk of being caught, sex - I just feel that, let me give you an example. You have a nice summer dress on and decided not to wear your panties. You didn't tell me as we sit down on a park bench, slightly hidden but still visible to those who look hard enough. You don't even say anything, sit on my lap and start grinding, making me hard enough to unzip my jeans and reach in to put me inside you to grind further until you take that cum you need inside you. That is the sort of thing I mean.
Edging/Multiple orgasms (both) - This pairs with how I Dom but if we edge together, we explode together
There are others, but these are just to catch the eye of people who have similiar but if you want to know more just ask
Turn offs / Hard limits:
Overly violent and risk of mutilation, permanent physical or mental harm Scat/Gore/Piss Humiliation BBW, unpopular opinion but if you say you are bubbly or BBW you are just trying to be cute about being fat Just all the horrible stuff really
As stated before this, I am looking for someone who is or wants to meet in real life at some point. I know a lot of the blokes here also want this but I am patient and never push for it. If it happens it happens. Someone who takes care of themselves like I do gym wise, I enjoy going outside and wild camping, climbing (sport or TRAD) and in general I am always looking for an excuse to be outside and exploring to see or find beautiful landscapes. Confidence is key, sharing yourself with me is key, and location is pretty important too so I would prefer if you were at least in the same country as me.
I prefer redditchat to PMs as I just.. will forget if it is a PM so if you want to send me a message please send me a bit about yourself (pictures work wonders) and maybe open with some of your own kinks. I am open to a lot of things as long as it is NOT on my hard limit.
