Are skin walkers real

A subreddit dedicated to spreading the word that the deer man monster is a WECHUGE, NOT A WENDIGO, and that the lengthy pale Native American monsters are Wendigo, not skin walkers, skin walkers are witches that disguise themselves as animals and other people, ALSO, each of these come from different tribes, Wechuge are from the Athabaskan people, Wendigo are from the First Nations Algonquin tribes and Skinwalkers are from the Navajo people.

Are vampires and werewolves based on real monsters? Are crawlers simply a new name for something humans have been encountering since time began? Are skin-walkers of Native American folklore simply the same entity as Were-wolves of Europe? What about Ghosts, Witches, Basilisks, Chimeras? Are these things ETs, inter-dimensional entities? Do they live underground? Focus on real-life experiences, and avoid discussion of phenomena related to dreams, nightmares, hallucinations, paralysis demons etc.

2023.03.29 17:40 InsidiousExpert Question for ALL USERS here. Just trying to get an idea of what percentage of users here own/use straight razors, only use safety razors, or use both. If you use both please comment on which you use more often. Thanks!

I know that the majority of users here are safety razor users only, but I’ve noticed that straight razors are becoming more popular as of late. I think that is great since I’m a big fan of straight blades myself. I personally own/use both straight and safety razors, as both are extremely capable and a joy to use.
I tend to use safety razors when I’m short on time, or traveling. Or if I’m just feeling lazy. I definitely prefer straight razors though, for a couple of reasons.
I live restoring them and customizing blades with custom scales. Honing razors has actually become more of a hobby that I’m extremely passionate about. The world of natural stones and the different types of edges they all produce is INCREDIBLE DEEP. Honing VERY well is a difficult skill to learn and one that takes time, research, and trial/error. It’s a science. Different types of stones produce different types of edges. Some people find ultra keen scary sharp edges to be best for them, while others prefer an edge that isn’t as “sharp” but is incredibly smooth and forgiving. A person’s skin and hair types (as well as their level of ability to use and handle a straight) will dictate what type of edge most prefer.
And while quality safety razors are capable of insanely smooth shaves when the user knows how to use it well, nothing can match the smoothness/closeness and complete lack of ANY irritation whatsoever that a high quality straight that’s been properly honed and stropped produces.

2023.03.29 17:39 Dopdee Just spent a week at Dreams Onyx

The resort was wonderful. Rooms were a good size and clean.
I traveled with wife and two girls (9 and 12)
Amount of pools and availability of chairs was good (I did reserve a set of chairs every morning at about 7:30 to make sure we were by the pool my kids wanted that day). However, I did notice a big increase in visitors starting this week (more spring breakers) and got a little more rowdy at the pools. Still not too bad though.
Water park was fun. They have four water slides and a lazy river - so a nice change from lounging at the pool/beach. There is an age/height restriction for the slides though. Must be 9 and 4’6” to ride any of them, so my youngest couldn’t ride. They do have one smaller slide that I’d guess they’d let her ride - but she had no interest.
The beach was a good size and the water was a little choppy - which my kids liked. Allowed them to boogie board every day (there is a stand on the beach that rented boards for free). All except last day, there was barely any sargassum.
There are some pushy vendors walking up and down the beach trying to sell hair braids, cigars, massages. The worst (and coolest) were a group of guys with animals to take pictures with - a monkey, two parrots and an iguana. I pointed out the monkey to my girls and the guy came over and put the monkey on my daughter. We took some pictures with our phone and he wanted me to pay $200 for it. Said “not a chance, don’t have that with me” said I could Venmo him or I could go back to room. He dropped price to $40. I told him I had $7. Take it or leave it. He got a little grumpy, took my $7 and left.
The only real downside was the food. Most of it was just okay. Some of it was kinda gross. We were not preferred club members so couldn’t make reservations. Most nights was fine but a couple we had to wait for up to an hour for a table. But we expected that a planned for it by eating late lunches and snacking.
Every member of the staff was wonderful. All the pool and beach areas have staff all around taking drink orders and were pretty to return with your drink orders.
All four made it through the week without getting sick from the water, so that’s a super bonus.
All in all, I’d happily return to Dreams Onyx. However, I’d also look at other options and would be happy to try another spot - mainly to try somewhere with better food options.
Happy to answer any questions.

2023.03.29 17:39 connie12346 What is your fibromyalgia pain like?

I have such a difficult time describing to drs what my pain is like from day to day. I have a list of symptoms that wax and wane from day some days certain stuff is worse than others but it never goes away. My symptoms are allodynia, skin burning all over, eye pain,plantar fasciitis,pots,abdominal nerve pain that wraps around ribs and into my spine. And my muscle feel like I’ve done a hard workout when I haven’t,they’re sore stiff and each movement causes spasms my neck and shoulders being the worst. I constantly feel like I’m dealing with muscle injuries when I haven’t really done anything that could injure them. Getting into bed is hard because adjusting and getting comfortable causes so much pain and spasms. I’ve given up hope that medication can help,this shits just exhausting.

2023.03.29 17:39 MightBeneficial3302 Award Winning Canadian Tech Leader and Recent 69% Winner ShiftCarbon Inc. (CSE: SHFT, OTC PINK: SHIFF) Released Blockbuster $5 Million USD Revenue News

Hello Traders,
Earlier this year we introduced members to a little-known Canadian gem that is considered a “global leader” in its high-growth tech sector. Over the following 2 weeks it saw an impressive climb:
That’s a real 69% gain! Since our report CSE: SHFT announced two major news releases, including a blockbuster $5 Millionannouncement with a $2.3 Billion per year IT giant. To put this in perspective, SHFT’s market cap is only $3.6 Million! And they just announced a project with a multi-billion company that is estimated to bring in $5 Million+ in revenue. Let’s look at the two recent press releases:
  1. *SHFT announced its first revenue-generating engagement with Solutions by STC. “*The first phase of revenue from this project is estimated to be US$5 million with the potential for additional revenue in the form of a long-term supply of goods as the smart city becomes operational.” Solutions by STC reported revenue of $2.3 Billion in 2022
  2. Earlier this month SHFT announced the launch of a new cloud platform designed for measurement, reporting, and verification (MRV) automation of carbon offset projects.
According to the World Bank, “Digital MRV will be a game changer!” CSE: SHFT processed 5.5 Billion data points in 2021 alone!
SHFT has already won several international awards:
And SHFT is already well positioned with massive clients and partnerships with:
SHFT is “Trusted by businesses in 100+ countries” including:
And considering the trends in the market, things could get even better for CSE: SHFT. Perhaps best of all, this company is operating in an industry that is expected to see massive growth over the next several years:
Keep in mind: 49 countries and 93 Fortune 500 companies have committed to net zero emission targets, and many analysts believe these numbers will only grow.
And if those number do grow then CSE: SHFT could be in the perfect position to capitalize as they are firmly established. As mentioned above, SHFT has already won several international awards for their technologies:
We’ve already said a lot so let’s step back for a minute so that we can better introduce you to today’s featured company you’ll want to keep your eyes on ShiftCarbon Inc. (CSE: SHFT) this week.

2023.03.29 17:38 archarinasoftware The Ultimate Guide: Improving Employee Engagement Using HRM Software

The Ultimate Guide: Improving Employee Engagement Using HRM Software
HRM management systems have become an essential part of many businesses. The system provides access to vital information about employees' health benefits status and time-off entitlements. So, if you want to streamline operations in your organization, HRM software can help achieve this.
ArcHRM software offers an easy-to-use platform designed specifically for small businesses like yours, without any hidden fees or complicated plans. Everyone in your company will have access to our powerful features without breaking the bank. So don't wait any longer - sign up today.

What is HRM Software?

HRM or Human Resource Management software is a goal-driven platform that helps in the overall management of your employees. Most HRM systems pride themselves on providing in-depth reports, real-time data, and employee tracking.
HRM software connects everything you need to keep your employees healthy, productive, and motivated without ever having to go through a complicated user interface or navigating countless pages on different websites.
How Can HRM Software Improve Employee Engagement?
HRM software can improve employee engagement by giving workers more insight into what goes on behind the scenes of an organization. This is because small businesses' growth opportunities are limited, but your workforce will become much more cohesive and satisfied in their work with proper communication.
HRM software enables employees to stay up-to-date on the company's latest happenings. It also helps build a sense of community within your organization because everyone will have access to the information they need when they need it.
Additionally, since this is web-based software, you can work from anywhere, making it easier for employees to be more flexible and productive.
For example, suppose someone works in IT and needs documentation to fix an urgent issue.
In that case, HRM software allows them to log in and get what they need without interrupting another person's workflow who might be covering their shift.

HRM Software Features Can Boost Employee Morale

Happy employees are more engaged, productive and take fewer sick days. Since HRM software is easy to use, the entire team will get familiar with it quickly, increasing morale. Plus, because everyone has access to the same information, there's no need for them to call out when they aren't feeling well or have an important errand they need to run.

What Are the Benefits of HRM Software?

HRM software holds various benefits. For example, it can streamline your operations quickly and help manage employees.

Manage Leave Applications Efficiently

HRM software helps automate leave management. Several features make this process much better than using multiple systems like Word, Excel, Google Sheets, or similar file storage applications.
For example, ArcHRM software stores all of your employees' information in one centralized location, which means everyone on your team has immediate access to their details anytime they need them.
You can also manage your commission plans, make notes of any expenses or even reward employees with points for meeting an objective. Our software is so feature-rich; it does everything from automating leave applications to preparing travel itineraries.

Manage Your Employees Better

We understand that there are many different types of employees, and each one requires a unique approach. With this in mind, we created a platform that helps you handle everyone – from full-time staff members to part-time workers – more efficiently than ever before.
For example, if you have a dynamic workforce, keeping everyone informed about what's going on within your organization can be challenging. With the announcements feature, you can send company-wide memos directly to their inboxes or choose to create blog posts for them to read later.
This strategy is much better than trying to communicate via email, WhatsApp, or other messaging apps because everyone will receive the same message at the same time if implemented correctly.
Plus, HRM software makes it easy to quickly schedule interviews with potential candidates for open positions and send reminders when an employee has been absent too long.

Can Help Track Employee Performance

HRM software helps you track performance making sure that every single worker is doing their best work possible.
It does this by creating reports that focus on the strengths and weaknesses of every member of your team. So if you're looking for something definite, like what someone is good at or where they need improvement, our software can help you with that.
Most HRM software also have a time-off feature that calculates how many days an employee has before they burn through all of their leave allowances. That is great because it helps managers know how much work each worker can do before the next person gets too overworked.
And since HRM software automatically tracks everything, you'll never have to fall behind on deadlines again. This is because you won't have to spend hours creating reports that may or may not be accurate at the end of the day.

Why HRM software to increase employee engagement?

HRM software allows you to manage your company's employees and expenses more efficiently than ever before. It also allows the employees to easily engage with your business with less time and effort. It does all of the heavy lifting for you and for your employees. It allows you to focus on growing your business instead of wasting time doing administrative work. And it allows employees to maintain a high level of engagement with your business and less time filling out paper administrative requests.

2023.03.29 17:38 JackWills94 How to win your Solo Queue Draft - a statistical analysis of 1M+ games

How to win your Solo Queue Draft - a statistical analysis of 1M+ games
Hey, I'm Jack J (Twitter) and I work in the AI & Esports/Gaming space! (I run & write the weekly The Esports Analyst Club article).
My main focus at the start of this year was to build AI models that could help professional teams win more games through draft.
I've now taken those same techniques we used in pro to analyse mid-elo (SilveGold) solo queue games to answer the question: How to win Solo Queue Draft. This article is a statistical summary of the results from studying 1M+ games.
Stick around to the end for a link to a tool I've built to analyse your account + any draft (even drafts that are half-way through) to find which of your Champions gives you the best chance of winning.
“Master Yourself, Master the Enemy”
It should come at no great surprise to anyone that by far the most impactful of all is the level of Mastery you have on a Champion.
How Champion Mastery impacts a players win rate
It’s not even that you need hundreds of games before a Champion becomes an acceptable pick — it’s just that so many players in mid-elo insist on first timing in ranked! The drop off is considerable, with sub-5k Mastery players averaging a win rate of just 41.5%, compared to the 54.5% enjoyed by 500k+ players.
The improvement is fast, but diminishing returns also come around quickly. Gaining an extra 5k mastery from 2.5k to 7.5k is almost an 8% rise in your win rate, whilst a 100k gain from 75k to 175k is only a 1.5% increase.
There is a simple lesson here: don’t first pick in Ranked.

Champion Win Rate

There’s not so much point graphing the correlation between a Champion’s win rate and how many games that player ends up winning — since they are practically the same thing (apart from some sampling randomness). So, instead — let’s look at the sort of values we tend to see in our ranked games.
The distribution of the Champion average win rates played
A grand majority of Champions sit between the 46–54% range, with few outliers. Of course, all else being equal it’s better to sit at the top of this scale where you can, but there’s not a huge range.

Counters & Pairs

If you play ranked, the chances are that you will occasionally look at the top lane counters to face up against your opponent. However, how often do we consider any other lane. Sure, your mid laner counters their mid laner, but how does it fair against their jungler? Or the synergy with your support?
The game is only isolated to the 1v1 for a relatively short period of the game when compared to all those skirmishes and team fights that will happen post-laning phase. No doubt, your 1v1 lane match-up will have the most significant impact — but that doesn’t mean you should ignore everything else!
Heatmap of Lane Counter impacts
This grid shows you the impact each lane counter has, where the darker the colour the more it sways the final outcome. For instance, the mid vs. mid match-up is by far the most important for those playing that lane, whilst for ADC’s is far more diverse with an almost equal impact across the board.

Econ & “Snowballatility”

This one’s not so straight forward, so bare with me. I’ve written an entire article dedicated just to this statistic, if wanted to really get into the details then head over there.
The simple summary is that certain Champions have a better chance of winning a game than others even if their laning phase went the same. If an Ornn goes 0–5 by 12 minutes, his win chances go down BUT not nearly as badly as if it was 0–5 Irelia. We call this a Champion’s econ.
The flipside is what I call “snowballatility”. A 5–0 Irelia can do more with that lead than a 5–0 Ornn, for instance.
To visualise this I’ve selected around 17,000 games where the lanes gone badly. The players all have around 70–75% of the average Gold @ 12 minutes for that lane. I.e. they’re about half an item behind schedule.
I’ve then split these in to two categories depending on whether that Champion has a good or bad econ rating. Here’s some examples of the Champions in each:
BAD Econ: Irelia, Tristana, Renekton, Aatrox, Riven
GOOD Econ: Ornn, Malphite, Galio, Singed, Malzahar
How an Econ Rating impacts a Champion's win rate when they are behind in lane
For all players, things are bad — averaging around 27.5% win rate if they’re set this far behind so early in the game. However, the BAD econ Champions have win rates almost 5% lower than the GOOD ones.
Obviously, the question is: “well how do you know how the laning phase will go?”. The technical answer is I have a separate model which first predicts the Gold @ 12 minutes before then going on to predict the final result.
In practice however, it’s very difficult. As a general rule it makes sense to consider this when blind picking or counter picking a Champion.
Know who you’re against and reckon you can face-roll the lane and get ahead? High “snowballatility” champions will maximise your win chance.
Blind picking and worried about getting countered yourself? High econ Champions will be good damage mitigation.

Team Composition

Obviously, you have far less control over the totality of your compositions strengths and weaknesses. However, there’s one that is worth considering: the AD Ratio.
By building a composition that is too one dimensional in their damage type you offer the enemy the opportunity to efficiently buy defensive items. Their tanks can use all 6 slots to build items effective against your entire team, when usually they would be forced to balance the two.
A team's win rate based on their combined AD/AP ratio
If AD accounts for around 20–80% of your team’s damage — you’ll be sitting bang average, just above the 50% mark. However, for those few games that fall on either side of this green zone there is a very real decrease in their win chance.
For some reason, <20% AD seems to be more painful than >80%. In other words, if you had to choose between the two you’d choose a full AD team over a full AP team. Potentially as there tends to be a greater selection of AD Champions with high and consistent true damage that can still handle the tanks.

And More…

There is of course many more elements to the draft, each bringing their own nuances that require consideration as you move through the drafting phase.
However, in the 30 seconds we have to make our decision there is simply too much to weigh up. Hence, I’d recommend sticking to these key points based on the findings above if you want to make that final climb:
  • Don’t first time. Above anything, it’s consistently the worst offender in mid-elos. You want a minimum of 5 games on a Champion before you take it to ranked. That’s a minimum.
  • There’s a reason Champions with high win rates have high win rates. This doesn’t supersede the first point. Of your highest played Champions, pick the ones with the highest win rates.
  • Lane Counters are super effective. Just remember non-lane counters are ALSO effective. We keep track of all matchup win rates in SilveElo on if you’re unsure.
  • Blind picking? Consider high econ Champions. Got them on the ropes? High snowballatility.
  • Diversify your damage. If you’re Jungling and the mid locks in Zed, consider an AP Champion. Last picking support and your team is 4 AP Champions? Consider Pyke or Pantheon.
Remember, this list is also in order of priority. If you’ve never played an AD support then avoid them, even if it locks you in to 90% AP damage. Quinn is a Garen counter — once you’ve played the matchup a handful of times AND she’s in a strong position in the meta.
If you aren’t an android from the future, chances are it’ll be extremely to consider all this in the moment. It’s why we made our drafting tool, after all:
Webapp Version (no download): The iTero AI Drafting Tool There's a downloadable version but to avoid coming across as a plug I'll leave for people who want it to find!
Simply type in your Summoner name, Region and the draft so far (you can even leave it empty if you want to see your best first picks) then hit “GET RECOMMENDATIONS”. The AI will calculate all the above and more, to give you recommendations based on your account. From our initial tests we’ve found that players using our recommendations consistently win more game— it’s as simple as that.
If you got this far down the article, I thank you! Long form content is (by name), more time consuming and not something you see very often in the space. I'm trying to do my part by writing an article once per week in the AI/Data/Esports space. You can see all of the previous ones at:

2023.03.29 17:37 ThrowRA_5478 I'm (29F) travelling for work for 3 weeks and am sad about leaving my new boyfriend (34M) for this time but have no choice. Need tips and advice on how to get through it without going nuts or seeming too clingy or missing him so much that I will not enjoy my trip

I have a trip planned for work that was planned months before meeting my current boyfriend. It is a work trip in Europe that involves 2 conferences, and 9 days in between the conferences for me to enjoy solo travel around Italy.
Things with my boyfriend are outstanding and we've both acknowledged how much we will miss each other. Him flying out to see me or meeting me during that time is not possible (1. he is scared of flying and 2. his work really picks up in the spring and will be busy with his own work while I am away).
It is not that I don't trust him, or myself. Because I do trust him and am not worried about anything like that. It is more the fact that we spend so much time together. While we have only been dating for 3 months we see each other every 2 days and spend A LOT of time together, our hangouts often last 12+ hours since we just click so well, so we both feel 3 weeks is a very long time to be apart. Regardless of how early it is in our relationship, we both feel strongly for one another and that is why it feels so hard. I know I will get through it but I was hoping to get some serious tips & insights from anyone who has gone through something similar and made it through?
I have an anxious attachment style, which has nothing to do with him. I am working on this with my therapist but unfortunately doesn't get resolved that quickly (damn childhood!). I guess my fear is I will miss him too much and the following will happen:
  1. I won't be able to fully enjoy my trip in Europe. I was so excited prior to meeting him because it is my first solo trip and thought it would be good as a single woman to enjoy life solo.
  2. This much time apart will make him realize he doesn't miss me and he will leave me (this is pure anxious attachment/fear of abandonment issues right here)
  3. I will come across too clingy while I am away by wanting to text/call/video call him and then he will think I cannot be independent without him.
  4. I will just genuinely miss him so much, he has become a very important part of my life and thinking of being away for 3 weeks is hurting my heart
Thank you! P.S. This is a throwaway account because my friends know I use reddit and I am ashamed to ask this question as the real me.

2023.03.29 17:36 FattyDooDoo Incremental Points Per Position

In SuperFlex, having multiple elite QBs is gold, but how much more valuable is an elite QB versus having an elite RB or an elite WR?
In looking back at 2022 data (.5ppr), comparing Top 3 players at each position to those ranked 13-15 (the top QB1s vs. the top QB2s for example) give us this data:
Hurts - 25.7 ppg
Mahomes - 25.2 ppg
Allen - 24.5 ppg
Lawrence - 18.4ppg
Cousins - 18.2ppg
Prescott - 17.9ppg
Difference of ~7ppg
Ekeler - 19.0ppg
CMC - 18.5ppg
Henry - 18.1ppg
Dalvin - 13.1ppg
Stevenson - 12.7ppg
Walker - 12.6ppg
Difference of ~6ppg
Kupp - 18.3ppg
JJeff - 17.9ppg
Hill - 16.9ppg
Waddle - 13.1ppg
Evans - 12.5ppg
Lockett - 12.3ppg
Difference of ~5ppg
My theory was that trading away a CMC-type player to get an elite QB would cost you too many Incremental Points - but it seems to be the opposite.
What I might be missing is that there are a lot less variation from the WR finishing at WR15-WR30 than there is at QB15-QB30 or RB15-RB30.
TLDR - I dont know how to value trades across positions, but I thought this was interesting

2023.03.29 17:36 Cribo-83 SIRED OF FIRE- CHAPTER 25: PREPARING TO LEAVE

Things are really starting to roll, aren’t they. So many players added to the mix and more than a few traipse across the supernatural barrier. Well now, let’s leave the denizens of the night and return to the old witch who is sitting within the confines of the castle. She’s on pins and needles and every second has them digging deeper into her flesh.

“I can feel it,” Maggie muses aloud in the empty room as she walks about. “There is a tremendous amount of power and it’s near. This all feels wrong. Too many coincidences to simply dismiss. This strange power and the hex cast upon Amelia’s mother. Something isn’t right. If only I knew exactly what.”

The doors open wide and in parades the current players: the king, his daughter’s, the technically zombie and the soldiers bearing the litter, which holds the Silent Man.

“What have we here?” Maggie asks as she stands from her seat. “A dead woman with a very powerful relic and a man in stasis.”

“Stasis?” Amelia queries as she steps forward.

“Stasis, it means he's in a state where he can't move or react, nor will he decay,” Maggie endeavors to explain, as she examines the Silent Man. “It’s what happens when a soul is torn from the body. And this is something I've not seen in a long time.” She turns her attentions on Mary Anne. “The Soul Nail, it pins a soul to whatever body it’s attached.”

All stand in stunned silence as they absorb the strange information.

“What of Tartarus?” Erica breaks the silence as she steps forward. “Do you know of it and how to get there?”

“Tartarus?!” Maggie exclaims as a confused look covers her face. “Why should you want to go to such an awful place like that?”

“Because the shadow man said that's where he sent the man's soul,” Cassandra cuts in as she points to the unmoving man.

“Oh that does pose a serious issue,” Maggie informs them as she taps her chin in contemplation.

“Issue?” Gerard asks and tries not to sound as lost as he feels.

“Yes, Tartarus is not a pleasant place,” Maggie continues and scratches at her chin. “It’s where souls are sent to suffer for all eternity.”

“Do you,” Mary Anne breaks of her silence and steps forward. “Do you know how to get there?”

“Oh dear me, yes, but I’m reluctant to tell you,” Maggie carries on as she nods her head. “It’s not an easy place to enter, and it’s even harder to get out. Fact is, you’re more likely to expire than you are to succeed.”

Amelia approaches the witch and takes her hand. “Please,” she begs while looking into her eyes. “I need to bring back his soul, I don’t know why, but I feel like we are connected somehow.”

“You’re right my dear. Your destinies are intertwined,” Maggie speaks to her and gives a reassuring smile. “Very well, I shall tell you how to get there, but only you. You are the one who’s going, so only you need to know.”

Gerard is not happy with this information. “She will not go alone!” he snaps as he physically places himself between his daughter and the old crone. “She will have an entire contingent of soldiers. No daughter of mine is entering such a dangerous place with anything less.”

Erica clasps a hand on Cassandra‘s shoulder. “And we’re going to,” she informs all parties concerned with a look that means business.

“Oh no, no, no, no,” Maggie repeats, as she shakes her head. “There are too many dangers that have to be overcome and I only have enough protection for a single person.”

“That doesn’t matter!” Gerard blurts and shakes his head. “She’s going to have soldiers for protection.

Maggie makes ready to argue, then she sees the conviction in the king’s eyes. “Very well,” she opts for a different course of action and pops her lips. “She shall have an escort.”

“And I shall go with her,” Gerard declares for all to hear and takes a bold step forward.

“Can you really afford to leave your kingdom without a ruler for an extended period of time?” Maggie inquires as she focuses on the speaker.

“You said it was dangerous, nigh impossible,” Gerard points out and refocuses on the witch.

“Without the proper equipment her chances of success would be near to infeasible,” Maggie agrees and casts an eye to the woman in question. “But the assistance I give her will greatly increase her chances.”

“I still refuse to...” Gerard persists, but his words fall away to the gentle touch of a delicate hand on his shoulder.

Amelia steps in front of her father and places her other hand upon his cheek. “I know you mean well and fear for my safety,” she consoles her troubled parent and brushes her hand against his skin. “But you can't leave the kingdom without a monarch.”

Gerard makes to speak more on the matter, but the look his daughter gives him chases all his troubles and misgivings away. He simply nods.

Now is the matter settled and the troops and supplies prepared. An entire contingent, consisting of archers, scouts and footmen with horses for everyone. There’s also a battle wagon, which is twice as big as a regular wagon, covered in armor and containing supplies such as food and weapons, pulled by four horses.

Amelia exits the castle and stands ready to depart, bedecked in her red armor. Alongside her is Erica garbed in her armor green. They both carry their respective helmets. They look back for the wanting sister, Cassandra is standing there still wearing her dress, not a scrap of armor or armament upon her person.

The green knight approaches her. “What are you doing?” she asks as she draws near. “We’re just about ready to start.”

“I’m not going,” Cassandra says simply and shakes her head.

“Why not?” Erica challenges as a look of confusion crosses her face.

“Because, father is going to need one of us to lean on,” Cassandra explains while giving a weak smile.

Erica nods. “Take care sis,” she speaks as she gives a somewhat loose hug, since she’s wearing her full set of armor.

Amelia’s the next to approach. She heard the conversation so there's no need for clarification or repetition. She leans in and gives her sister a kiss. “I’ll miss you sis,” she bids her and touches her forehead against hers.

“As will I,” Cassandra assures her sibling as she returns the kiss.

Amelia turns about and dons her helmet. She mounts her horse and rides up next to Erica, who she gives a nod to and who returns the gesture. After which, the green knight takes to the head of the battle train and sets it to marching. Maggie is in the battle wagon, alongside Mary Anne, both are right next to the Silent Man‘s body.

2023.03.29 17:36 Specialist-Bag8043 Space expert reveals Guinness World Records of the universe

Guinness World Records has been expanded by a space expert in order to showcase some incredible statistics found throughout the rest of the cosmos. In a new video this week, British scientist and BBC TV broadcaster Brian Cox says, "If there was a Guinness World Records 'Universe' book, the records would be remarkable." Cox quickly moves through an extensive list of exciting space-based records, starting with "the most enormous compact object," a supermassive black hole, a picture of which was taken by NASA's Spitzer Space Telescope three years ago. The so-called M87 galaxy, which is six billion times more massive than the sun and is located 55 million light-years from Earth.In addition to numerous records, Cox unveils the universe's fastest object as well as its biggest structure and smallest object. The scientist identified Glass-z13 as the farthest distant verified galaxy when asked. "The light's journey from it to the telescope took around 13.4 billion years. We are examining the galaxy as it might have been 200 million or 300 million years after the Big Bang. Glass-z13 has a distance from Earth of little over 33 billion light-years due to the expansion of the universe. The James Webb Space Telescope, the largest telescope of its sort ever constructed, made the discovery of the far-off galaxy. The Webb telescope has been conducting research into deep space and sending stunning images back to Earth since its deployment earlier this year. As Cox points out, recordings of the universe are subject to perpetual change as astronomers and scientists make new discoveries all the time using more potent tools like the Webb telescope.
What reionized the Universe, and when?
When did the transparency of the universe begin? It's a strange but crucial question. The Universe was once opaque, but over time it changed to transparency and is still transparent now. It is literally the reason we can see far-off objects in the sky, and in a more existential sense, that instant of cosmic transparency had an impact on the behaviour of galaxies, the formation of stars, and other things. Answering the question is something that many astronomers want to do because it has significant ramifications for the objects we want to study and because we are here because of it. Astronomers from several countries may have discovered the solution to the puzzle: 12.7 billion years ago, roughly 1.1 billion years after the Big Bang. The fact that this is a few hundred million years later than previous calculations has some intriguing ramifications. Our entire Universe was in a hot, dense condition and all of its matter was ionised immediately after the Big Bang, like minutes after it: Any hydrogen or helium nuclei were free of any electron bonds. When an electron attempted to move, a photon, a particle of light, would strike it and cause it to fall. At the time, all of the light was incredibly high-energy and more than capable of maintaining the ionisation of the environment. As matter is so dense, if you were in this miasma, which in a sense you were since everything in the Universe was, it would appear absolutely opaque to you. An ionisation timeline Gas was cold and neutral in the early Universe (on the left), but as time goes on (on the right), radiation from stars and active black holes rips electrons off hydrogen atoms, illuminating the gas. An ionisation timeline Gas was cold and neutral in the early Universe (on the left), but as time goes on (on the right), radiation from stars and active black holes rips electrons off hydrogen atoms, illuminating the gas. The time interval is roughly one billion years from left to right. Thesan Collaboration, in picture Astonishingly, as the Universe cooled and expanded over the next 400,000 years, the average photon eventually ran out of energy to ionise hydrogen. For the first time, protons and electrons united and remained together to form neutral hydrogen. Recombination is the term used to describe the joining of an electron and a proton, hence this event is referred to as recombination even though it was the first time most atoms had united. Continuing the story Neutral hydrogen is highly good at absorbing visible light, the wavelengths of light humans can see, therefore the universe was still opaque even though the density of the Universe was reducing as it expanded. This period is known as the Dark Ages. That situation would last for a very, very long period until new objects formed that could emit ultraviolet light. When they were created, they ionised the hydrogen in space once more, but this time was different since the Universe had a lower density, allowing photons to go farther without being absorbed. Space became transparent all of a sudden and remained so. We can see a great distance even today because the majority of gas is ionised, or officially called a plasma. Reionization refers to this point in the universe's history. However, when did that occur? A pleasant approach to learn more exists. A blazar, or galaxy containing a supermassive black hole spewing energy, as depicted by an artist. Credit: Science Communication Lab and DESY A blazar, or galaxy containing a supermassive black hole spewing energy, as depicted by an artist. Credit: Science Communication Lab and DESY Image: Science Communication Lab at DESY Huge black holes evolved in the centres of galaxies as they initially emerged from the darkness. These black holes would collect matter as it fell into them, building up in a disc that would become extremely hot and emit high-energy ultraviolet light, X-rays, and gamma rays. These galaxies are what astronomers refer to as quasars, and we can view them from a very, very long way. When these quasars' light reaches us, it battles the Universe's expansion, which causes their wavelengths to lengthen—a process known as redshifting. In other words, the redshift reveals the quasar's distance, which in turn reveals how long after the Big Bang we observe it. Due to the fact that light can only move at a certain speed, objects that are further away are redshifted more and appear to us in the past.Because of the quasar's immense strength, even if we observe it before reionization, it will have already ionised the hydrogen immediately around it, allowing light to escape. The light from the quasar will be absorbed if there is a cloud of hydrogen between us and the quasar that is sufficiently removed from it to remain neutral. The redshift of the wavelength gap we detect in the quasar's light indicates how far away the cloud is from us and, more significantly, how far back in time we saw it. Very far distant clouds are neutral and unionised. However, following reionization, we suddenly stop noticing them because they are unable to take in the quasar's light.. So in theory, all we need to do is isolate the light from a collection of distant quasars using really good spectra. Numerous wavelengths will exhibit significant absorption, which will disappear at a sufficiently low redshift. Reionization took place then. This is really difficult to do in real life. You need really brilliant quasars, and even then, they are faint because they are so far away. Additionally, you need very good spectra, which calls for a large telescope and prolonged exposures. Numerous additional factors must also be taken into consideration, such as how the universe was structured back then. However, the astronomy team actually did this. They used archived observations of 42 additional extremely bright quasars from two other observatories in addition to 25 very distant very bright quasars from the XQR-30 survey. They discover that the Universe first became transparent roughly 1.1 billion years after the Big Bang by closely examining the 67 quasar spectra. Illustration of the first stars in the universe illuminating the gas clouds where they originated. Photo: NAOJ Illustration of the first stars in the universe illuminating the gas clouds where they originated. Photo: NAOJ And that's really fascinating! What precisely ionised the universe is unknown. There was enough time for supermassive, extremely hot, luminous stars to form as well, and they could have also blasted out UV light, enough to contribute. It might have been these very quasars. Was it thus stars, quasars, or a combination of both? The timing may be able to focus this. Reionization was previously estimated to have occurred 200 million years earlier, but if the new estimate is accurate, there is plenty of room for many more of these first-generation stars to form and contribute. So, if you'll excuse the pun, it might have been both stars and quasars working together. Around this time, galaxies were developing, and if these stars were incredibly powerful, they could blow gas straight out of the galaxies, altering the evolution of those galaxies. In order to comprehend when these stars existed and what they might have done to their surrounding environments, we need to know when reionization took place. I'll remind you that you reside in a galaxy and on a planet revolving around a star whose lineages may be traced back to this period. Reionization—what it was, when it happened, and how it affected the universe—thus plays a role in our existence. It's clear why we want to know the answer. And it might be here at last. Naturally, more observations are preferable. We may also be able to determine the duration of reionization if we have more exact estimates of this number from models of cosmic structure. 1,000,000 years? 10, fifty, or one hundred? It's almost certain that larger telescopes with better cameras will be used to answer that question. We are among the first species to comprehend precisely how the universe came into being and what occurred to it after that. You can quote me on that, but the Universe took 13.8 billion years to get here, and I think it was worth the wait.

2023.03.29 17:35 Littlebotweak The Toxic Truth About FORMALDEHYDE in Hair Products!

The truth is that formaldehyde is not harmful to hair at all. Any safety concerns related to formaldehyde are related to lung or respiratory issues. Treatments with high levels of formaldehyde that can be a health concern are professional keratin treatments, which are regulated by OSHA.
Formaldehyde preservatives do not contain harmful levels of formaldehyde. In fact, formaldehyde can have restorative properties on hair due to its remarkable ability to bond proteins, which is probably better than any other chemical out there. This is why it is used in nail strengtheners and keratin treatments. It doesn't matter what type of hair you have; it won't cause any damage.
It's important to note that hair is made up of dead cells and cannot be damaged by formaldehyde. Formaldehyde does not affect the DNA in your hair, unlike living cells in your body such as those in your lungs. Your level of exposure to formaldehyde during occasional visits to the salon chair is not prolonged, and the risk of prolonged exposure is high only for professionals who work with formaldehyde in an industrial setting or in funeral services. While some studies have shown links between formaldehyde exposure and cancer, not all studies have found such a link.
Formaldehyde is produced naturally as a part of metabolism and is eliminated from the body through the same mechanisms as other chemicals. The body has evolved to handle it in small amounts, unless you have a specific genetic disorder that would have been diagnosed by now.
Formaldehyde is water-soluble, so if it gets on your skin or in your hair, it can be washed out with just water.
The safety of formaldehyde has been proven as a preservative and in straightening treatments. The Cosmetic Ingredient Review (CIR) is an independent toxicology panel that assesses cosmetics, and OSHA regulates formaldehyde keratin treatments.
Here are some sources to support the information presented:
The CIR's page on formaldehyde: OSHA's page on formaldehyde keratin treatments: Nature's article on formaldehyde's protein-binding abilities:
