2023.03.30 07:09 Sweet_Source2124 Waste in Oman
So according to the ministry of Agriculture, Fisheries and Water Resources 560 tonnes of food is wasted in Oman per year worth approximately 60 million Omani Rials. From personal experience I would think that much of that waste came from overabundance of food in every social function ever especially weddings. Let’s assume that instead of wasting food we invest the money that would have been spent and get a %5 return (which is a relatively easy return on investment to get): After 30 years of investing 60 million a year to get an average of %5 the Omani economy will be OMR4 billion bigger. To give some context, Oman currently has a GDP of USD$88 billion which is approximately OMR34 billion. This is one small thing in the Omani culture that could have a huge impact on the broader economy, the same thing can be said about 100 other things in the Omani culture. This is just mind blowing to me, what do you think?

2023.03.30 07:07 MickiiVee My 13pt Breakfast
Hello people !!
Today was a good day. Work and food wise. Below are the points and ingredients for todays very satisfying and filling breakfast. I put the sandwich together and it was huge but worth it. I know some people may think that a 13 pt breakfast is a lot but I have so many points in the day and if I don't use them I lose them...( not really some roll over.. lol) You can modify this any way you want but this might be my go to for the next few week because it kept me full for so long. I didn't eat my lunch until 3 pm today. Another thing I am trying is to pace myself when eating my meals. I need to learn how to listen to my body to know when I am full or stuffed and what not. I am also trying to drink more water in my day and with meals.
What are some of your favorite breakfast recipes ? Let me know. I do like to switch it up every now and then.
3 pt - Sourdough english muffin
1 pt - Light Laughing Cow cheese wedge
1 pt - Foster Farms oven roasted turkey slice
3 pt - 84gm Avocado
4pt - Hash brown patty
0pt - 1 egg
1pt - Coffee Mate sugar free french vanilla creamer ( for my iced coffee)

2023.03.30 07:01 ArielSnailiel Bisalp tomorrow - and I feel like a kid on Christmas Eve!
I’m incredibly happy to say that tomorrow morning at 10:00AM I will finally be getting a bisalp at 22 years old. I thought that once it got closer to my surgery date, I’d be super nervous, but I honestly feel more EXCITED than anything! I just want to get it done already! It’s exactly like having to sleep one more night until I can open presents on Christmas day! That’s the best way I can describe it.
I’d say I’m extremely prepared; my wonderful supportive dad bought me $250 worth of items I’ll probably need, like food, medicine, pillows, etc. and he set up a temporary bed for me in our dining room so that I won’t have to climb any stairs for a few days. The only things I can think of that I didn’t end up getting that were recommended by others previously were a cane and a grabber. I’ll just have to have my family help with getting things for me that may require reaching up high or bending down low, but I’ve put all my necessities at a level that should be easy for me to reach.
Anyways, I’m just so excited and I’ll probably make another post talking about how it all went, which could be tomorrow, in a few days, or in a week; just whenever I’m feeling up to it! I know there are a couple of you out there who have shared that y’all’s bisalps are also on March 30th, so if any of my bisalp buddies are reading this, best of luck to you!

2023.03.30 06:59 living-on-the-bay Kyoto Hip, Casual Restaurants
My husband and I are traveling to Japan for 2 weeks and will be in Kyoto a few nights. We live in San Francisco and are big foodies - enjoying the high-end and casual places. We are having a hard time finding restaurants that aren't the standard 11 course, high end restaurant in Kyoto. We would love to find some places that are more casual - could be a hole in the wall with a counter, natural wine or sake bar with great food, izakaya...hoping to find something thats not on the standard search! Thanks in advance!

2023.03.30 06:46 ouryouus 21-day itinerary check: Kansai + Chubu
Planning a 3-week solo trip to Japan in November, this will be my first time going! This is a fairly low-budget trip and I plan to stay in hostels most nights—I’d like to keep my expense per day under 100 USD. Main interests are art, history, traditional music, and nice views. General questions:
- I have a moderate soy allergy. Soy sauce is fine (thank god), but miso/tofu/less processed soybeans are not good. Is it worse etiquette to leave miso soup untouched or to ask for it not to be served? Also, are there any foods where soy might be lurking but not be obvious (the brown flour on mochi, idk what it’s called but those little soy curds that get mixed with vegetables, etc.).
- Thoughts on goshuin? The idea is super appealing to me, but the costs seem like they would add up very quickly—has anyone tallied up their goshuin-related expenses so I can get a feel for what I might be looking at here?
- I am ethnically full Japanese but the extent of my language is like basic greetings/English loan words/food (I’m gosei, lol). Should I not even lead off with Japanese in any conversations/interactions? I don’t want people to assume I can actually communicate effectively.
- Additional day-specific questions in italics! Also open to any restaurant/bar recs!
- Sunday, Day 1: Osaka > Fukui
- Land at Haneda early morning, approx. 2 hour layover before flight to Osaka -- Is this enough time to get through customs/immigration + pick up pocket wifi?
- Thunderbird to Fukui (2.5 hours, arrive around noon)
- Asuwa Shrine
- Fukui Osagoe Minka Garden
- Monday, Day 2: Fukui
- Yokokan Garden
- Daihonzan Eiheiji
- Ichijodani Asakura Ruins

- Bus to Shirakawa-go (1.5 hours)
- Gassho-zukuri Minkaen
- Wada House
- Bus to Takayama (1 hour)
- Saturday, Day 7: Takayama
- Takayama Sky Park
- Hida no Sato
- Matsui no Mori Museum — Saw some internet reviews saying that you are allowed to play the drums. Can anyone confirm/deny? Do I have to bring my own odaiko-appropriate bachi or do they have some there (these would take up so much luggage space…)?
- Visit a sake brewery — Recommendations on a particular one (or more than one)? Is there an expectation that you buy a bottle after a tasting?
- Sunday, Day 8: Takayama
- Miyagawa Morning Market
- Takayama Showa-kan Museum
- Higashiyama walking course

- Nagaoka Tenmangu
- Suntory Kyoto Brewery
- Kyoto Station Area
- Thursday, Day 19: Osaka
- Osaka Castle
- Osaka Museum of History
- Kuromon Market
- Friday, Day 20: Koyasan — How integral is a temple stay to Koyasan? I will probably not be doing this due to expenses and aforementioned allergy—is it worth it if I just stay at a hostel? The alternative would be a day in Kobe.

- Women Pilgrimage Course
- Saturday, Day 21: Osaka
- Public transportation to Osaka (~2 hours)
- Den-Den Town
- Kamigata Ukiyo-e Museum

2023.03.30 06:43 Rhetorical_Abe Veteran Tips
I see plenty of people posting on here asking for recommendations, so as a 4th time attendee this year, I will share what I have learned.
First: shade. One canopy is great. 2 is supremely better. A beach tent is a great second canopy. The second canopy is for your tent. The difference provided by that shade will separate you from the rested and the devastated.
While we’re talking about keeping cool, you don’t know heat brother. You’ve been on the beach in 90 degree heat before. You were fine. Well, ‘yer on the farm now city boi. And in the south we got a thing called humidity. So bring the following to also help you keep cool.
Rechargeable battery fans. And when I say fan, you need the blade diameter to be no less than 8”, bigger is even better but bigger means they take more power. More on that later. Get 2 at least maybe 3. With three you can create a nice little cyclone and keep the air moving. The fans that recharge through usb cables are ideal. Because they’ll be easier to recharge.
Frog toggs. They’re chamois that soak up cold water and you can drape them on your neck or over your head to keep cool. Put them in your cooler water to get them nice and cold.
A 5 gal bucket. You can also drain your cooler water daily into this bucket. It will stay surprisingly cool for a long time. This bucket you can use for a very soothing and very cooling foot bath at camp. You can also use this to wash your feet before you enter beneath your canopy. Clean camp is a happy camp.
Space blankets. You can clip these to the top of your canopy and help bounce even more heat off your camp. Make sure you also bring plenty of clamps/ binder clips/ zip ties to secure them and..
Tapestries. You want 3 at least and you want them to be tall enough to go to the ground from the side of your canopy, and wide enough to span side to side. Gives you privacy and a nice little wind tunnel. If it’s your first rodeo, old bed sheets will work fine. Darker colored preferred.
Solar battery generator. We live in the future and it’s glorious. These things are expensive but worth every penny. Even getting a smaller cheaper version will prove immensely useful to recharge your phone and fans out there. You may even be able to run some led string lights with them at your camp for ambiance and light. Lock it in your car during the day or hidden in your bins or tent. Recharge and run your fans at the same time while your battery is charging in the beautiful sun. An alternative are those car charger adapters that have like 2 USB ports and a regular plug. It can be nice to take refuse in your car and enjoy the AC but be mindful of your neighbors. You may be blowing exhaust and heat right on them.
Tent locks. This is a controversial topic on this subreddit. But what most people overlook is the notion that not every thief is a pro or fully motivated. Some fucked up idiot who stumbles through your camp who could have been deterred easily could get into your tent now. Any measure is better than no measure. But do keep high dollar valuables locked in your car. You may consider keeping smaller items and electronics in plastic bags in a second cooler. Your car will get HOT.
Bring a good cooler and expect to buy ice at least once per day. go FIRST thing in the morning for ice and to shit before there is a line. Also don’t bring food to cook. Cooking at camp is rookie shit. Take burgers. Sounds easy. We’ll think about it. Produce won’t keep. Cheese won’t keep. Meat won’t keep. Condiments won’t keep. No don’t cook. Budget for food and if you do bring food bring snacks and simple meals like pb and j or oatmeal. My personal recommendation are those MREs and First Strike Bars.
Solar shower. The shower line is for chumps. And you don’t need a shower booth. Just bring a swimsuit and bathe in that with help from your friends. One stands on the cooler or a bucket and holds it and you get a better, warmer, wait free shower each day. They’re also exceedingly cheap. The med size is all you need.
Personal folding fan/ Battery misting fan. Misting fans are great for in the crowd. Those little neck fans are nice but be sure to bring enough batteries to change them everyday. Otherwise you’ll barely feel them.
A canteen/ water bottle/ camel pack. Hydration is the name of the game. Everyone here says it all the time, and they’re all right. Drink lots of water. Also bring Water Boy or Liquid IV to boost your hydration.
You don’t have to do drugs to have fun. It’s a great place and a great time all it’s own. If you are doing drugs, only do the drugs you brought with you. Don’t buy drugs. And if anyone offers you drugs, bring a test kit to make sure they are safe. If for nothing else your peace of mind that you know exactly what you’re on.
I’m sure I could think of more but I thought this could help some newbies out there. You don’t have to have everything I said. I built up to this. You will want to come back so get what you need and you will be better prepared next time. You will have a great time. See y’all on the farm.

2023.03.30 06:34 Ezra_is_a_dumb_boy Every season 1 - 19 contestant and semi-finalist
A little messy as the placements are random, except if their state was shown 3 times so bear with me. I'm gonna give some fun facts about the semifinalist bc they aren't as well known.
every antm contestant and semifinalist (1 - 19)
cycle 1: Christina from Little Falls, Minnesota Heather from Galloway, Ohio Ebony M. from Cumberland, Maryland Nicole C. from Chapel Hills, North Carolina Lenora from Greenwich Village, New York Elyse from Albuquerque, New Mexico Shannon from Franklin, Ohio Jakai from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Robin from Memphis, Tennessee Jessica from Tucson, Arizona Noelle from Reno, Nevada Kesse from North Little Rock, Arkansas Toiya from Atlanta, Georgia Ebony H. from The Bronx, New York Katie from Glenview, Illinois Tessa from Chicago, Illinois Adrienne from Joliet, Illinois Giselle from Corona, California Nicole P. from Murrieta, California Erin from Pasadena, California Natalie from Riverside, California April from San Diego, California Shawna from Los Angeles, California Justine from Huntington Beach, California Corey (unknown)
Corey, Toiya, and Jessica were semi-finalist that weren't shown to make it seem like there was 20 girls. There might have been more based on the bulletin board they used but it's hard to tell.

cycle 12: Adiamond from Denver, Colorado Kathryn from Farmland, Indiana Teyona from Woodstown, New Jersey Sandra from Rockville, Maryland Anna Lisa from Scottsdale, Arizona Aminat from Union, New Jersey Fo from Albuquerque, New Mexico Tahlia from Phoenix, Arizona Monique from Telluride, Colorado Kortnie from Houston, Texas Angelea from Buffalo, New York London from Arlington, Texas Celia from Cynthiana, Kentucky Allison from New Orleans, Louisiana Asha from Atlanta, Georgia Bianca from Albuquerque, New Mexico Jessica from Bradenton, Florida Isabella from Barboursville, Virginia Alex from Tampa, Florida Nijah from Rancho Cucamonga, California Tatiana from Lakewood, California Natalie from Palos Verdes, California Lauren (unknown) Kelly (unknown)
London and Isabella's real names are Lauren and Kelly. They went by nicknames because there was another pair named Lauren and Kelly, and they just kept the nicknames.

cycle 14: Hallie from Memphis, Tennessee Krista from Pine Bluff, Arkansas Rogi from Washington D.C Naduah from San Diego, California Jessica from Conway, Arkansas Anslee from Dracula, Georgia Ravyn from Washington D.C Tatianna from Ewa Beach, Hawaii Jeanna from Chicago, Illinois Raina from Minnetonka, Minnesota Anastasia from Chicago, Illinois Danielle from Greenville, South Carolina Justine from Syracuse, New York Alasia from Marietta, Georgia Gabrielle from St. Louis, Missouri Martha from Charlotte, Tennessee Angelea from Buffalo, New York Brittany from College Park, Maryland Simone from Lenexa, Kansas Honor from Santa Monica, California Jessie from Warren, Michigan Nida from East Bernard, Texas Julianna from Austin, Texas Alexandra from Kerrville, Texas Aimee from Houston, Texas Madelynne from Houston, Texas Tuesday from Houston, Texas Ren from Dallas, Texas Brenda from Houston, Texas
Texas was done dirty this season. Many of the semi finalist (Tuesday, Madelynne, Aimee, Julianna and Nida) are all from Texas (Brittany also lived there for a while) and for some reason, Ren was casted? The reason why is because they wanted someone to create drama and all the top 20 remaining girls were nice (except one) so they brought Ren.
Hallie was a top 20 girl, and she was bratty and spoiled. So why wasn't she casted? Both her and production found out that she was pregnant so she couldn't continue.
cycle 15: Tyrie from Indianapolis, Indiana Justine from Indianapolis, Indiana De'Yana from Detroit, Michigan Chelsey from Boise, Idaho Jane from Baltimore, Maryland Jessica from Willow Grove, Pennsylvania Esther from Boston, Massachusetts Lauren from Brettwood, Tennessee Vanessa/Violet from Lakeville, Minnesota Emily C. from Ona, West Virginia Toya from Beaufort, South Carolina Christina from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Kendal from Northport, Alabama Emily H. from Barboursville, West Virginia Terra from Arlington, Texas Anna from Dallas, Texas Lyzbeth/Liz from Arlington, Texas Christin/Chris from Arlington, Texas Laura from New York, New York Anamaria from Queens, New York Sara from Tarrytown, New York Alexia/Lexie from Geneva, Illinois Nitasha from Chicago, Illinois Jillian from Chicago, Illinois Kayla from Rockford, Illinois Jordan from Chicago, Illinois Kacey from Palmdale, California Emi from Pismo Beach, California Rylee from Orange County, California Sara B. from Menifee, California Shelby from Beverly Hills, California Rhianna from San Diego, California Mindy from Murrieta, California Anna (unknown) Jen (unknown)
Jen is an unknown Asian girl who just randomly slipped away from production and ran away during auditions.
cycle 16: Laree from Atlanta, Georgia Breanna from Blaine, Minnesota Elizabeth from Philadelphia, Pennsylvania Molly from Olathe, Kansas Annabelle from Manhattan, New York Sierra from Park City, Utah Kari from Steamboat Springs, Colorado Taneisha from Anniston, Alabama Brittani from Beech Creek, Pennsylvania Tiffany from Hattiesburg, Mississippi Molly O. from Charleston, South Carolina Ondrei from Muskegon, Michigan Kasia from Wheaton, Illinois Yashure from East Saint Louis, Illinois Monique from Hebron, Illinois Alexandria from Huntington Beach, California Dalya from Corona, California Vee from Sacramento, California Dominique from Houston, Texas Jaclyn from Belton, Texas Rune from Edinburg, Texas Hannah from Houston, Texas Mikaela from Boca Raton, Florida Deidrian from Lauderdale Lakes, Florida Nicole from Orlando, Florida Angelia from Pembroke Pines, Florida the unnamed stripper from Mobile, Alabama
The fake out girls were not actresses, they were real people. This is more well known now but maybe you didn't know.
cycle 17: Seymone from Augusta, Georgia Allison from Houston, Texas Isis from Prince George's County, Maryland Mariah from Pendleton, Oregon Kyle from Magnolia, Texas Laura K. from Stanford, Kentucky Eboni from Seattle, Washington Kayla from Rockford, Illinois Dominique from Columbus, Ohio Molly from Olathe, Kansas Shannon from Franklin, Ohio AzMarie from San Fernando Valley, California Alexandria from Newport Beach, California Lisa from Los Angeles, California Angelea from Buffalo, New York Laura L. from Scotia, New York Sheena from Harlem, New York Candace from Brooklyn, New York Bre from Harlem, New York Camille from The Bronx, New York Bianca from Queens, New York
Before season 17 was an Allstars season, it was just a regular season. Some of the 32 girls included Candace, Laura L, AzMarie, Eboni, Kyle, Mariah, Seymone and Molly (a season 16 fake-out girl). Production changed it last minute and everyone last minute accept Molly went on cycle 18. This was confirmed by Molly and AzMarie
cycle 18: Amelia from Port Talbot, Wales Laura from Scotia, New York Eboni from Seattle, Washington Candace from Brooklyn, New York Mariah from Pendleton, Oregon Kyle from Magnolia, Texas AzMarie from San Fernando Valley, California Seymone from Augusta, Georgia Ashley from Armadale, Scotland Alisha from South London, England Jasmia from London, England Sophie from Oxford, England Catherine from Folkestone, England Louise from London, England Annaliese from London, England
There was another American girl that was a semifinalist on cycle 17 and moved to 18. She dropped out, however, before production started. They had to cut a UK girl out to make it more equal and that was Amelia.
cycle 19: Latrishe from Washington D.C Ivory from Whittier, California Nastasia from East Stroudsburg, Pennsylvania Jamie from Gahanna, Ohio Lauren from Ann Arbor, Michigan Deedra from from Portland, Oregon Jessie from Speedway, Indiana Victoriana from San Diego, California Brittany from Gilbert, Arizona Savanna from East Lansing, Michigan Kiara from Las Vegas, Nevada Allyssa from Fort Lauderdale, Florida Kaci from Moon Township, Pennsylvania Christin from Cook County, Illinois Destiny from Columbus, Ohio Yvonne from Minneapolis, Minnesota Kristin from Jacksonville, Florida Leila from Farmington, Massachusetts Sara from Seattle, Washington Maria from Las Cruces, New Mexico Victoria from Colquitt, Georgia Darian from Baton Rouge, Louisiana Laura from Cambridge, New York Caroline from Awendaw, South Carolina Amber from Sachse, Texas Jasmine from Fort Worth, Texas Briana from Southlake, Texas Andie from San Antonio, Texas Sasha from Dallas, Texas Delaney from Dallas, Texas
These are the hometowns of all the college girls instead of their college cities. Like season 14, Texas was done dirty.

2023.03.30 06:29 sirotan88 [Trip Report] 6 days in Tokyo, Hakuba & Osaka in mid-March to experience snow, onsen, and cherry blossoms
This is the second time visiting Japan with my boyfriend and our main goals were to eat good food and ski at Hakuba Valley. We saw cherry blossoms, experienced Japanese onsen, and traveled a lot with our JR rail pass!
Day 1 Tokyo:
- Arrived at Narita in the afternoon
- Omotesando (shopping, ramen at Oreryu Shio Ramen Jingu-mae; order from the vending machine, it’s cheap and fast)
- Shibuya (conveyer belt sushi at Gansozushi, we only went there because the other sushi place we wanted to go to - Sushi No Midori - wasn’t taking any more people. We were super tired and just wanted something quick)
- We stayed in Kyobashi near Tokyo Station. The area feels upscale, quiet, clean and safe. It’s not crowded and has very wide streets (easy for wheeling luggages from the station to your hotel), and is centrally located. Not much nightlife.
Day 2 Tokyo to Hakuba Valley:
- Breakfast at Tsukiji Market. Even at 7am most places have a short wait. We ate A5 Wagyu, sushi at Tsukiji Itadori Bekkan, and got taiyaki at Tsukiji Sanokiya. Also bought some small bowls and sake cups from Ichifuji
- Shiba Park. Didn’t get much time here since we were rushing to catch our train, but we saw Tokyo Tower and some cherry blossom trees in front of Zojo-ji
- Train from Tokyo Station to Nagano and bus to Hakuba Valley. We’re glad we budgeted a lot of extra time at Tokyo Station because we were pretty lost. You don’t really need to be at the platform super early (boarding time is just a few minutes before departure)
- At Nagano station we got soba noodles while waiting for our bus to Hakuba. Seems like a lot of locals were eating there too.
- Dinner in Hakuba at NEO＂和＂食堂 一成. The tonaktsu here is delicious, and we tried duck sukiyaki. The restaurant only has like 3-4 tables so get here early if you don’t have a reservation.
Day 3 Hakuba Valley:
- Ski day at Iwatake. Not much snow coverage, but we still had fun. It has a lot of beginner and easier intermediate terrain with pretty good views (hard/expert terrain were closed due to lack of snow.) It was cloudy all morning but around noon it cleared up and we had amazing views of Hakuba valley.
- The City Bakery is worth a visit even if you don’t ski at Iwatake. It’s a beautiful wooden viewing platform and attached cafe with coffee and pastries.
- Hakuba Happo Onsen. Very clean and relaxing experience. The best part was sitting in the tatami room after the onsen, and drinking some tea from the vending machines.
- Dinner at Yamagami Syokudou NEO. We had grilled pork and beef, ramen, gyoza and potato croquette.
Day 4 Hakuba Valley:
- Ski day at Happo One. It snowed all day so there was a good amount of fresh powder, but also poor visibility. The terrain here is more advanced, especially because it’s not well groomed. The green runs are very narrow cat tracks. We stayed in the section called Panorama Pair. Lower half of the mountain was mostly closed.
- Stayed at Hakuba Hifumi. We used the onsen, relaxed in our room, then had dinner in the hotel (shabu shabu.) Staying here was one of the major highlights of our whole trip. If you can find a room here I’d highly recommend it! (http://www.hakubahifumi.jp/en/)
Day 5 Hakuba to Osaka:
- Long travel day. Bus from Hakuba > Nagano, train from Nagano > Kanazawa, then Kanazawa > Osaka, around 6 hours total travel time. We sat on the left side for Nagano > Kanazawa and got amazing views of snow mountains. Watched anime, took a nap, ate ekiben.
- Namba Walk, had ice cream and matcha tiramisu at Maccha house
- Kuromon Market and Dotonbori. Didn’t enjoy it much our second time round. The food we had was mediocre (maybe we’re just unlucky). The line for takoyaki was super long, and the takoyaki was very undercooked and runny.
- Umeda Sky Building. Nice experience overall, especially watching the trains go across the river. Luckily we were able to just go up without any lines.
- We stayed in Shin Osaka station area. It’s much quieter than Osaka station but still pretty convenient.
Day 6 Osaka:
- Breakfast at Dashichazuke En.
- Osaka Castle Park. There were a few cherry blossom trees blooming. Recommend walking to the Japanese Garden on the south west corner of the castle.
- Lunch at Sachifukuya (in Jo Terrace). The Hokkaido milk soft serve ice cream is really good.
- Gift shopping at Shin Osaka station. Also had conveyer belt sushi at Ganko kaitenzushi.
- Train to Kansai Airport. We arrived about 3 hours before departure. Check-in line took 1 hour. Our gate was in an area that is mostly under construction so there was not much to eat or shop. I recommend doing your souvenir shopping at the big train stations (Shin Osaka or Osaka) instead of the airport.
Some tips for future travelers:
- Don't just buy a 24 hour Tokyo metro ticket. There are two different subway companies, the Tokyo Metro (blue M symbol) and Toei (has a green leaf symbol), and we were not able to use our metro pass on any of the Toei stations. It was still possible to get around but we had to walk further to certain stations. I think there is an option for a combination ticket for both, we just didn’t know at the time.
- If you’re going to or from Tokyo Station, budget an extra 15-20 minutes travel time. You can even spend a whole hour exploring the station's food.
- When booking a hotel in Hakuba, check the free shuttle map so you can use it to get to and from the slopes and bus station. Some hotels will also offer some shuttle services as well (e.g. pickup and drop off at the bus station.)

2023.03.30 06:19 1Swirlybird Fearful Chi invited to small doggy playdate
I have a 9 month old male Chihuahua (Nacho Libre Castellanos)
He was frightened by a couple large dogs I tried to introduce him to and has since been suspicious and aggressive to all dogs.
I have been counter-conditioning him by letting him view dogs at a distance while giving him his fav food.
My friends have small dogs that are nice, but my friends don’t really subscribe to counter-conditioning. They’re the, “let them sort it out,” type of owners. They invited us to hangout at the beach tomorrow.
I plan on counter-conditioning as we slowly approach, but my problem is that he will most likely go over his threshold when we actually meet the other dogs because I will stop feeding him so as to not incite resource guarding.
He HAS had a good experience with one of these dogs a week ago, so most likely he will recover quickly and get into playing.
I feel so wound up about this because I worry that he will be rehearsing barking at dogs before playing and will create a habit of that from now on. Am I over reacting? Being too uptight?
I'm willing to be a crazy dog lady if it's worth it, so any help is appreciated!

2023.03.30 06:07 arianahrza410 How Do I Bring A Ridiculous Situation To My Boss's Attention Without It Coming Across The Wrong Way?
I (21F) started working at a dollar store in town in June/July of last year. For some background, I have worked for the same company for almost 3 years now, 2 years in a different location, almost a full year at my current location. I love the job, my boss, and my coworkers, but something has been going on for quite some time that I just can't deal with anymore, I've reached my breaking point. A few months after I got hired in as a cashier we hired in a new kid, Phillip (fake name, 18-19M, unsure of exact age). He had never worked retail before, this may even be his first job, so at the beginning when he wasn't really doing his job properly, it was understandable. Now, Phillip has been there for probably 6 months? Maybe more? And still doesn't share the work load. Part of our job entails recovery (which is making the store look nice essentially, a very easy job, all you do is pull products forward so the shelves look full and put things that aren't where they belong back in their homes), rotating stock (which is checking the dates of food, medicine, toothpaste, etc. And making sure the items with the earliest expiration date are in the front), and, just like every other job, coming in for earlier shifts and weekends sometimes. Phillip, however, doesn't have to do any of these things. My managers have brought to my boss's attention multiple times that Phillip doesn't do recovery OR rotate any of the product. Also, when Phillip started at my job he told my boss he can't work on Sundays because it's his family's "shopping day" and, unbelievably, she gives him every Sunday off even after she acknowledged to me that it was ridiculous. He ALSO never has to work any earlier than 3pm because he "can't wake up that early". Meanwhile, I work every weekend, the other employees and I all have to open/work early, and I was making the same pay as Phillip while doing double the work that he does. Even our other cashier, an elderly woman (definitely like 65+) does way more work than Phillip does. I recently (maybe 2 weeks ago) got a promotion to assistant manager. I figured since I was going to be making more money than Phillip that this situation wasn't going to bother me as badly, but it still is. Obviously, when I accepted the position I knew I was going to have a heavier work load, but it's still unfair to my other coworkes and I, assistant manager or not. I have been trying to come up with a way to bring just how ridiculous this situation is to my boss's attention, but (1) I feel it's not my place since my boss has been doing her job for a very long time (9+ years) and (2) now that I have a pay raise and a promotion I don't want it to come across like I'm lazy and like I don't expect to have a heavier work load. I very strongly considered telling my boss I need every Saturday off for "shopping day" or that I can't open the store because I "can't wake up on time", but I know that's petty and passive aggressive, so I have held off on it. What should I do? Do I even bring this to her attention or just let it go? And even if I do bring it to her attention, how do I go about it without coming across the wrong way? My boss is very good at her job and, as I said, has been doing it for a long time, so I don't want it to come across like I think I can do her job better than she can. I just don't want to begin to hate my job because other people don't have to pull their weight, but I don't want to say something if it'll cause more trouble than it's worth.
TL;DR: There is a cashier at my job who gets days off for silly things (that even my boss recognizes as silly) and doesn't have to work earlier than 3pm, simply because he "can't wake up that early". It's been weighing on me for months, but I didn't know how to approach the situation without my boss feeling like I'm telling her how to do her job. I also got a promotion maybe 2 weeks ago, and fear that if I bring this up to my boss it will come across as lazy. How do I go about the situation, or do I even bring it up at all?

2023.03.30 06:05 cestlavie88 166 days, health update, blood work, don’t give up!
So, October 14th 2022 I walked away from drinking. I am the proud owner of not 1 but 2 DUII’s (probably deserve 50 DUIIs), a brief stay in county jail, countless brutal screaming matches with my husband, I’ve thrown and broken things, and done lots of damage to my relationships. My husband is also an alcoholic and quit the same time.
Just turned 36. I’m a high functioning alcoholic. I own my own business I founded back in 2017. Partied the whole way up. It’s funny how as long as you’re working and making good money how people act like you don’t have a problem. The whole corporate, real estate, financial industries absolutely bask in celebrating functional alcoholism. Corporate retreat? DRINKS! Promotion? DRINKS! Closed a huge deal? Signed a new client? Established a new business partnership…? DRRRRRIIIIIINNNKKKKKSSS! Lol. Drinking is always the answer.
I learned how to drink rubbing elbows with my higher ups. When I got my first DUII ten years ago my former mentor said “who cares, welcome to the club”. This from a man who used to run Marriott.
Anyway, regardless. Alcohol is my demon. It nearly dismantled my marriage. In fact I’m still walking through an extremely difficult part of my marriage because of something awful that happened while my husband and I were at our lowest. Not on my end but I’d be lying if I said I didn’t play a part. And it’s been part of the catalyst that ended mine and my husbands drinking career. So in a way I’m grateful.
We drank a LOT. 5 nights a week at least. Sometimes starting at 1 or 2. Sometimes even earlier and finishing by 5… passing out. I drank heavily for 7 years. I was a beer woman. IPAs like a stereotypical Oregon hipster. Then I moved onto whiskey for a season. Always Jameson. Then that got too syrupy to me so I finished with grey goose. Sometimes I’d mix grey goose with white claw. Road sodas and that.
Got used to living in a permanent state of either hungover or inebriation. Only taking breaks when I was so bloated drinking didn’t sound good. So I HAD to take a break. I thought it was normal to sleep like shit. Maybe copping 4-5 hours a night. No REM sleep ever. Sex with my husband was sloppy drunk BS. Often I’d end up puking. Hanging my head in my toilet like “yep…this is normal, just gotta puke so I can rally”. Pass out. Wake up gagging. Coughing and gagging while I choked down the first 4 cigarettes. Just so I could repeat it all again. I’ve gained 100 lbs too. Eating like shit and drinking too much. Skipping meals so I didn’t ruin my buzz just so I could ferociously yogi bear my kitchen at 3am looking for ramen. I can’t believe how long I lived like that.
LOL, and the ANXIETY. Through the roof. Could hardly go grocery shopping without a buzz unless it was 6am. I was convinced I had agoraphobia. And extreme anxiety. Nah. Turns out when you’re in active addiction and HEAVY denial you just miss that you’re not really mentally ill. You’re just a junkie for booze. Which I was. That and gambling and cigarettes. Those three were my gods.
Anyway. Flash forward to December last year. I had already quit drinking in October but I’m December I got RSV and it turned into pneumonia. So on December 7th I peaced out cigarettes for good.
Started working out in January. Every day.
Now I sleep 8-9.5 hours a night. Sometimes I don’t even wake up to go to the bathroom. Just glorious on my belly mouth open fan on comfortable EPIC snooze fests every night. I take vitamins every day. I mediate. I sit sauna. I read. I paint. I play music. My brain is awake. I’m back. The woman I thought died long ago, she’s in there. My thirst for adventure is insatiable. I’ve lost 30 lbs so far too.
I used to go backpacking and hiking a lot. I used to love to be in the forest. I fought fires structural and wildland. I never thought I’d hike again because I’d gained so much weight and I smoked so much I couldn’t breathe. I’m hiking 5 miles almost every day. When I can’t I jump on my treadmill. I’m feasting on life. I used to feast on slow suicide.
Finally bucked up and went to the doctor this month. The pain in my side came back. The pain I convinced myself was pancreatic cancer and liver failure…. And definitely liver cancer all at the same time. It was back and it made no sense because I quit drinking already. I should be healed. So I said “fuck it” and made my appt. Got an all my blood work done. Got a pap (cause you know I also was certain I had cervical cancer bc I was a heavy smoker). Got an ultra sound and x rays on my side.
My liver enzymes are normal. My blood work is flawless. My side hurts because I have a gallbladder polyp that is exacerbated by fatty foods. My cholesterol is good. Blood pressure is good. My pap and all that was good.
I remember drinking thinking fuck it, I’ve probably already done all the damage. I haven’t. It’s worth quitting and living. Not thinking like that anymore. Now I am caring for my body! Now I am getting healthy and coming back to life. I’m not suffering from anxiety anymore. My body is healing and every day I get stronger. My marriage. God. My marriage is growing in ways I never imagined. I’m falling in love with a man I am just getting to know.
It’s been a crazy ride. I’m almost to six months. Please hang in there!!!! I love you!

2023.03.30 05:44 duellingislands 6:40 EET; The Sun is Rising Over Kyiv on the 400th Day of the Full-Scale Invasion. Today's subject is the tradition of decorative barrel-making in the western mountains of Ukraine. + Discussion + Charities!
| || | submitted by duellingislands to ukraine [link] [comments]
_______________________________ Another entry in our series about the traditional folk crafts of Ukraine!
Other entries are here: Pysanky, Ukrainian Easter Eggs Motanka, Ukrainian Dolls Rushnyk Hutsul Blankets Petrykivka Painting Opishnya Ceramics Didukh Vyshyvanka: Ukrainian Embroidery Vinok, Ukrainian Flower Crown Cheres, the Talisman Belt Korali Necklace Yavoriv Toys
Practical Art A master at work. Yosyp Prymak from Kosiv begins a new piece. Decorative barrel-making
is one of the oldest folk craft traditions in Ukraine, and can be found even today - especially in Bukovyna region and in Hutsul communities.
The Ukrainian word for barrel-makecooper is bondar,
which comes from the word bodnya
- a vessel that served as a chest. If you've ever met someone of Ukrainian heritage with a surname of "Bondar" , "Bondarchuk", or "Bondarenko", you now know where these very common names come from! At first, a long time ago, these products were made by craftsmen out of a single, carefully hollowed-out tree trunk. Smaller houseware items, too, were made using this method; some examples have been found that are a millennia old.
But practicality was not enough! Craftspeople wanted little works of art to decorate their walls and liven up their tables. They made barrels, baskets, cups, and more - entirely from wood and with no metals. Later of course, metals were used, especially with larger vessels, but you get the picture. And these products were in great demand! People would buy them at fairs, or exchange the vessels themselves for food. Some were made to order as a gift for any occasion or event - wedding gifts for newlyweds, a parting gift for an old friend, a talisman for a young person. Some examples of simple but beautiful antiques from Bukovyna region.
There were highly specialized vessels that were adapted to the environment of the people who needed them - take for example the Berbenytsya
, a tall, thin barrel used for carrying sheep's milk on horseback. In another post, we will examine how this type of vessel turned into something historical and musical.
These wooden artsy vessels caught the eye even of the divine. In Ukrainian churches, many of the ritual objects were made by the same decorative cooper artisans.
By the mid-19th century, decorative cups, goblets, little barrels, plates, boxes, and wooden utensils were one of the top exports of Ukrainian artisans from western Ukraine.
It's All About the Materials A container with a tree motif.
A cooper, to ensure success, needs to first prepare the wood very carefully. A tree's materials need to be collected in a specific season of the year, and be of the right age and growing in the right place.
The cooper prepares the cut wood years in advance because the wood needs to dry for two years in the shade - under a roof or other covering - to ensure that the final product will not crack.
When making smaller items, the artisan needs to consider the items intended use when choosing a species of wood with the right physical and technological properties. Oak and beech were used for wine vessels or for Kvas
. Spruce, sycamore, and aspen would be used to store sugar, salt, butter, honey, milk and other dairy products, and fruits. The wood of plum and pear trees would be used for non-food uses. Heating the \"pencils\" with a pich
After the item is made, the artisans decorate it by burning various ornamental designs into it. To do this the traditional way, you bake little "pencils" of metal with a Pich
, and then draw your designs. If you're skillful, you can get a variety of effects and tonalities from this method. A collection of traditional decorative patterns assembled by Volodymyr Voronchak.
The Craft Today Master Ivan Hrymalyuk at work in the 1970's.
The most famous modern craftsman of this practical art was Ivan Hrymalyuk (1904 -1989) from the village of Richka in the Kosiv region. He came from a family of coopers and his works of art still impress with their wealth of various forms, clear proportions, and decorativeness. He attentively and generously shared his wealth of knowledge with his students, and thanks to them the art is being kept alive.

2023.03.30 05:44 Complex_Pension_1704 Should I quit my new job?
Hey everyone so I recently saw a job posting about a restaurant near me (5 mins) hiring for different positions, one being dishwasher ofc. I was hired and have been working for the past five days. Although I understand I’m still “training” I’m not sure it’s worth it. Out of the 25 hrs I’ve worked so far I’ve probably only washed dishes for 2 of them. Everyday I’m expected to sweep, double mop and vacuum the whole restaurant, clean the bathrooms (replace soap, toilet paper, wipes seats, change garbages, etc.) then I’m sometimes given random side quests such as making bread and wrapping silverware. My final straw was today when a panty liner in the trash got stuck to my glove while I was cleaning the bathrooms. Wet food doesn’t bother me but this was just too much. I’m aware that jobs sometimes have you do other things but this doesn’t seem like a dishwasher position to me. It seems like I’m stuck doing whatever responsibilities are left depending on the day. They have one machine and sometimes 2 other dishwashers already there. So i get stuck doing bread and wonder why i was even hired . I suffer from anxiety and Reddit has convinced me this was the perfect job for me. I washed dishes at my old job sometimes and I enjoyed it so I thought this would be a great option. The 2 hours I did wash I actually enjoyed it’s just the extra tasks. I’m a girl btw and not the strongest. The tasks I’m given sometimes are hard on me psychically. I only picked up this job to help me get my first car. I want to know are these responsibilities normal? I don’t want to give up on dishwashing but I’m truly not happy here. Any advice I would appreciate greatly.
TLDR: Been at new job for five days and only washed dishes 2 hrs in total. Job has me doing random tasks. Is this normal? is it worth it?

2023.03.30 05:36 yellow_rogue_of_TX 47 [M4F] - Dallas / Fort Worth - I want passion… not a spark, but a forest fire!
I want a friend, a confidante, a cheerleader, a spark, an insatiable fire.
I’m looking for someone who wants to get to know me deeply and be known deeply. You have to want this first and more than the physical because this is what I can promise you daily.
I want to laugh with you at how ridiculous every single day can be in it’s own way. I want to share food pics, memes, silly things our coworkers say.
I want intimacy. I want to know I can be myself, vulnerable, real. In public and private. Clothed and unclothed.
I want experienced in adultery, professional, driven.
