2023.03.29 09:00 4BetterM1nd [Weekly Poll] What human need are you lacking most in your life right now?
Are you taking care of your 6 human needs?
Remember that they all are very important for you to be happy without pornography.
So if you are taking care of them - you will quit your addiction much faster, because you will not need fake source of pleasure to be happy.
You will already be happy!
Here are 6 human needs description and tips:
Gives you confidence, sense of security and trust.
If you don't have it - you will feel a lot of pressure, stress and anxiety, because you don't trust anyone or everything that is happening in the world or around you. (You will feel bad)
However - if you have too much certainty - you will feel BORED and Overwhelmed. That's a feeling of being stuck in a predictable, boring routine.
And in many cases, including mine - boredom is one of the main triggers for addiction, because you will tend to look for something that can excites you. And nothing can excites you more than something that gives you so much PLEASURE! Bad Certainty Behavior:
Overeating, control of others, binge watch TV/Netfilx/Anime, procrastination, etc.. Manage your certainty by
- cleaning, developing empowering rituals(workout, exercise, meditation, reading, etc), focusing on the things you want in life, instead of listening or following others.
You might be asking - ''but why the Heck I need Uncertainty?''
That's the FUN part. It will get you out of the BOREDOM of certainty.
Our human needs are built in a very strange way, that they actually are in conflict with each other. But if you look deep - you will understand that it is exactly what gives your life Drive and Excitement!
That's why you need Uncertainty, or in other words - Variety.
You need to have something unpredictable happening in your life, or else - it will be boring!
That's like - eating one and the same dish all the time. Very soon - you will get bored or even sick of it! Bad Uncertainty Behavior:
Overwhelm, drug, intoxication, change TV channels/Anime/Netfilx, Self sabotage, create drama and problems. Manage your Uncertainty by:
new challenges, changing the meaning of events, hobbies, be creative, learn and discover new things
In short - if you don't care about this - you will feel LONELY.
And loneliness is the MAIN triggereason for you to stay in this addiction!
No matter you like it or not!
Love & Connection is when you feel that someone is actually caring about you. Or supports you in a certain way. We all need this feeling!
Or else - we will feel very Lonely. Bad Love & Connection Behavior:
being needy, self harm, unhealthy/toxic relationships Manage Love & Connection by:
sharing, supporting others, connect through nature, faith, loving and respecting yourself, independent relationships Tip
: If you can't create relationships right now for one reason or another - Spirituality and connection with God also takes part of this Human Need!
This human need is all about being heard, noticed, recognized and simply - listened.
It is the feeling of being unique, special and being needed.
If you don't have it - you will feel worthless and depressed. Bad Significance Behavior:
People can often raise their sense of significance by using alcohol, engage into arguments, talk gossips, being victim, tell sad stories about self, rebellion or surround yourself with people who seems less skilled or attractive, so you can stand out. This approach is neither good nor healthy. Manage your Significance by:
directing your competitive nature into healthy activities, like sports, mastering new skill, speaking up, mastering a craft or field, achieving goal or volunteering.
"𝘐𝘧 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘥𝘰𝘯'𝘵 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘨𝘳𝘰𝘸𝘪𝘯𝘨, 𝘺𝘰𝘶'𝘭𝘭 𝘧𝘦𝘦𝘭 𝘭𝘪𝘬𝘦 𝘺𝘰𝘶 𝘢𝘳𝘦 𝘥𝘺𝘪𝘯𝘨 𝘪𝘯𝘴𝘪𝘥𝘦." 𝙏𝙤𝙣𝙮 𝙍𝙤𝙗𝙗𝙞𝙣𝙨 If you are not growing as an individual
- sooner or later it will make you feel bad, or even worthless. Especially if you have friends, or someone you know, who are doing better than you and are completely succeeding in life, while you are not moving at all.
Don't worry - you can become someone you always wanted to be
, if you will take this human need seriously! Bad Growth Behavior:
Gathering information without applying. (Learning is cool and might be very exciting, but without applying it in real life - it is worthless
People whose core need is growth are always striving to be better and learn more. Manage your Growth by:
self development, leaning & practicing, pursuit of mastery, teaching others (The more you teach - the better you learn)
Don't forget emotional and spiritual growth as well!
Last but not least - feeling of doing something MEANINGFUL.
It is a sense of service and focus on helping, giving and supporting others.
Colleagues, schoolmates, people in college, your family, friends, or just random person on street...
Giving back is the best way to fulfill this need. The closer the cause is to your heart, the more fulfilled you will feel. Bad Contribution Behavior
: Giving to get, being a martyr, not taking care of self
Manage your Contribution by: volunteering, donating, helping people (I believe animals can be included as well) Tip:
help people who are struggling to start quitting porn addiction. While you are still not done with this - you are way ahead of those who are only starting, right?
Go ahead and help others! Keep others accountable and you will feel better as well! View Poll

2023.03.29 09:00 WolfWarrior001 How often do you reroll maps on deity?
I mainly play emperor and even with bad starts I almost never reroll. However I’ve started playing on deity and even on mediocre starts I can barely even get normal ages whereas before I was almost always getting golden ages except for entering the classical era. Even right now I got a mediocre start from the land, the other civs and city states haven’t been favorable, and I’m 164 turns in and I don’t see a win coming. Maybe I need to change map type or something.

2023.03.29 09:00 SuperBiscoitinho Making a case for Taming
Uuuuh... Summoning who?
I noticed that in the discussion of for Sailing and shamanism, taming as been kind of forgotten, and today I wanted to rebate most of the points made against Taming and show how it might offer much, much more than what we are thinking.
To start off, here are the main points we should consider from yesterday's pre recorded live stream:
- The main focus of the skill is to give the creatures you capture and tame their own personalities, and not just keep them as "tools"
- Training this skill would not revolve into "capture creature, release it, repeat" but would focus on actually taming it, caring for it, and doing activities it might enjoy (for example, a bear could enjoy fishing, so you would gain taming XP by letting your bear pet fish salmon near Barb Village. That's where the meta would lie, instead of what hunting is mostly about.
- The incentive for Taming a creature isn't to just "do your normal activities but now with a random animal following you" like we have with the actual pets we have in game, but to do their very own activities that your tamed creatures might enjoy and be able to do. So, instead of just repeating an agility course, you could guide your creature to do it on its own together with other players
Now that we have these points highliged, let's talk about the main points AGAINST Taming:
- Taming should just be an expansion to Hunting . First of all... Taming and hunting are two opposite things. And while it's true that some hunting methods use other animals, I believe that only shows how much good Taming could do to the game and other skills in the game as its own skill instead of just an expansion. The idea of having all these old and new creatures coming to the game with their own personalities and preferences open so many doors to new hunting methods, but not just hunting... Maybe even fishing, woodcutting, farming, agility, and many more! As they said in the blog, they have the fangs, the wings, maybe even the size to do things we are unable to do. So by letting this skill be its own thing, we open the doors for animals and other magical creatures to show us the way THEY interact with the world we play in!
- I don't want to see a bunch of animals following everybody everywhere in the overworked . While that's understandable, we need to remember that the Devs have all ears on us. If we don't want the game to be overcrowded with pets, they can maybe show only in designated areas, maybe they only appear when you interact with them, we can make our voices heard about this. But I personally see potential with letting one of our companions walk beside us. As Mod Husky put it: These creatures could have their own walking and idle animation based on their personality and how loyal they are to you.
- What if it changes combat? I don't want Taming to be like Summoning! . This is a bit of a grey area right now. But if we don't want these companions to intervene in Combat, they won't. Maybe they could have their own combat system that would work with other companions as a way to interact with other players's companions all Pokémon style, who's to say! But from what I've seen, they don't plan on making combat be the focus of this skill, the focus is in creating a long lasting bond with your creatures.
- I don't like the idea of having to stop everything just to feed my pet or having to keep inventory spaces just to not le them die . Thankfully the Mod team knows that this is not good game design, and plan on making it so that the caring part of Taming be its own activity that you engage with IF you want to. It won't punish you if you don't do it, like your cat leaving you just because you didn't pet it once every 5 minutes. We don't know how this new system will look like yet, but we can be assured that they won't make it the same as old Jagex did back in the early 2000's.
With this said I believe I covered most complaints about the skill. Of course you can just not like the concept or the theme of the skill, that's perfectly fine. But even if you don't like it, I think it's important to acknowledge how much good this skill could bring to the game!
Being able to tame creatures, befriending them, training their abilities and seeing them interacting with the world in never seen before ways, doing their own activities or even aiding you on your own... The opportunities are limitless!
I hope I was able to convince you guys that Taming is a lot more than what some are giving credit, and that it should be a lot more considered when talking about a new skill. Thank you for reading!

2023.03.29 09:00 StepwiseUndrape574 4Chan Leak Allegedly Exposes GTA 6 Lead Characters And Key Map Details
A pair of leaks have turned up on 4Chan that claim to outline details of Rockstar's forthcoming Grand Theft Auto 6. Fans of the franchise would do well to take these rumors with a grain of salt as there's no way to know for sure if any of these details are accurate. The leaker on 4Chan goes by Rhanadeng and claims to have been a friend of a disgruntled employee working on the game during 2019.
The source claims that this employee allegedly asked him to anonymously leak information about GTA 6. However, things later improved, and he lost contact with the Rockstar team member. One key detail is that this person also claims the game has been in active development since 2016 or 2017, with pre-production starting shortly after GTA V was ported to current generation consoles in 2014. The new GTA VI game world map is also claimed to be the size of GTA V and Red Dead Redemption 2 combined.
gta v mission One of the odder bits that this 4Chan user details is a minigame where players control a stream of urine from a protagonist using motion controls. On the protagonist front, there are said to be four in the game, including a driver called Walther Wallace and an unnamed former Israeli IDF person. Another, Thomas Branigan, is a smuggler who owns an aircraft called the Raven, and Marcus Burke is a drug dealer and father to a young boy.
The area is said to be based in Florida, with Vice City among the three major cities with one smaller city in the far northwest of the map. The game reportedly jumps around in time with part of the timeline set in the 1980s and other parts set in the present day. Missions aren't as linear as they are in GTA V or RDR2, notes the proclaimed leaker. Players will briefly visit a small central American island, but it's reportedly not Guarma. The game starts with gamers playing the role of smuggler, Branigan.
gta v car Supposedly there are multiple child characters in the game that mainly interact with Burke and his son. Switching between the protagonists isn't said to be instantaneous, but the camera reportedly zooms out and travels quickly to where the protagonist the player wants to play is located. Sleeping Dogs-inspired parkour is involved in the game as well, but to a lesser extent without wall running. The leaker claims that weapons function more realistically in the game than they have in past titles. An example noted is rocket launcher back blast that ends up taking out an NPC in one of the missions, where the goal is to destroy a helicopter.
Hand-to-hand combat is supported and is said to be similar to Red Dead 2, with the leaker noting it's harder to fight hand-to-hand GTA VI than in GTA V. Player characters can also gain weight in the game, and it affects character attributes as it did in RDR2. Mori Kibbutz is also reportedly in the game, but not much else is detailed about his character.
This leak isn't the first that has surfaced about GTA 6. Last December, a user on reddit claiming to be a beta tester, leaked a bunch of alleged details of the game. In January, another leak claimed that the game would launch in 2021.

2023.03.29 09:00 dot_mun Creating Headings with HTML (h1-h6)
When it comes to creating a website, one of the most important elements is headings. Whether you’re writing a blog post or designing an entire web page, having effective and organized headings will make your content easier to understand. This is why understanding how to create such headings in HTML language can be incredibly beneficial for any site creator!
Heading tags are used within HTML code in order to define different parts of text as separate sections on a webpage. The first heading tag
defines the largest and main heading which introduces the topic at hand while subsequent header tags like < h2>,< h3>, etc get smaller sizes accordingly so that they appear less prominent than other texts on that webpage . For example if there was an article about cats then maybe “Cats: An Introduction” would be written as an H1 followed by several H2s such as “History Of Cats” or “Types Of Cats".
Using these various size headers helps organize large amounts of information into easily readable chunks without overwhelming readers who may not have time/interest for all details presented therein – thus making websites more user friendly overall! Additionally when coding correctly using proper header hierarchy also improves Search Engine Optimization (SEO). Meaning search engines rank pages higher when everything follows logical structure & formatting guidelines set forth by them; this further increases visibility & accessibility across internet users worldwide!!
It's clear that being able to use Heading Tags (
) properly makes any website much better organized , understandable, credible and SEO optimized !! If you're someone interested in learning more about coding don't forget this vital skill - because ultimately it'll help make your projects stand out from anyone else's .

2023.03.29 09:00 dspeyer EA Forum Digest 29 Mar 2023
This is a transcript of the speech philosopher Agnes Callard gave at the Aims of Education address at the University of Chicago. A central theme of the address is to think about one’s future as going beyond our own lifespan, and beyond the lifespan of everyone we know. She gives her own views on why we care about the future. Even though I don’t agree with everything she said, the speech takes an interesting perspective on the long-run future and I found parts pretty inspiring. (It's long, so I added a lot of highlights that are hopefully useful for skimming.)

When we're trying to do AI alignment, we're often studying systems which don't yet exist. This is a pretty weird epistemic activity, and seems really hard to get right. This post offers one frame for thinking about what we're actually doing when we're thinking about AI alignment: using parts of the space of maps to reason about parts of the space of intelligent systems.
In this post, we:
We hope that the content is mostly the second kind of obvious: obvious once you see things in this way, which you maybe already do. In our experience, this comes with a risk: reading too fast, you may miss most of the nuance and useful insight the deceptively simple model brings, or come away with a version of the model which is rounded off to something less useful (i.e. "yeah, there is this map and territory distinction"). As a meta recommendation, we suggest reading this post slowly, and ideally immediately trying to apply the model to some confusion or disagreement about AI alignment.

I explore the pros and cons of different approaches to estimation. In general I find that:
These differences are only significant in situations of high uncertainty, characterised by a high ratio between confidence interval bounds. Otherwise, simpler approaches (point estimates & the arithmetic mean) are fine.
I am chiefly interested in how we can make better estimates from very limited evidence. Estimation strategies are key to sanity-checks, cost-effectiveness analyses and forecasting.
Speed and accuracy are important considerations when estimating, but so is legibility; we want our work to be easy to understand. This post explores which approaches are more accurate and when the increase in accuracy justifies the increase in complexity.

Core examples Point estimates are fine for multiplication, lossy for division Interval estimates are prone to bias General findings: interval vs point estimates A high ratio between interval bounds implies positive skew General findings: normal vs lognormal The geometric mean is usually better than the arithmetic mean Weighted means General findings: aggregate estimates
In Toby Ord's "The Value Of Money Going to Different Groups", footnote 9 states: “it isn’t more important to help someone living on $200 per year (at official exchange rates) in a place where PPP is high than someone on the same amount where PPP is low”.
This isn’t right; PPP(purchasing power parity) doesn’t matter if the elasticity parameter η=1, but it does matter if η≠1 (so in particular, the estimates in the article for η=2 are only correct for comparing contexts with equal PPPs).
To show this, consider again the utility function:

There is some discussion on the forum about using AI to detect whether or not something is a deepfake, and perhaps some trust in anti-deepfake bots to be better resourced etc. in this arms race. But could we give ourselves a bit of breathing room here?
Could it be incredibly valuable to accelerate desensitization to deepfakes? Or at least make people more aware of them by using humor?
It seems like a real risk that someone eventually creates a convincing and harmful deepfake, a la current President saying, "America has launched nuclear weapons against Russia." Or vice versa or literally anything bad, with voice and video, that to our eyes is Very Real and Convincingly Terrible.

This post reflects my own personal opinions and not the opinions of the orgs I’m mentioning.
The argument goes:If you get an application for you [job opening, grant program, etc] and you take some amount of time evaluating the application, it can’t take that much extra time to just write down the reason for your decision. You made the decision, so you know why you made it. So why then isn’t feedback better integrated in more application processes? Why do many EA orgs say they don’t have time to give personal feedback to applicants?

I couldn't find any foundation of shared language or understanding in AI Safety Movement building to work from, so I created this series of posts to share and sense-check mine as it developed and evolved. Based on this, I now assume:

2023.03.29 08:59 PoisonblacKalmah24 My post Wrestlemania ideas for the Bloodline and splitting up the Heavyweight and Tag Team Championships. A bit of a long read.
Bloodline: Cody beats Roman and KO/Sami beat the Usos at Wrestlemania. Roman takes significant time off after Wrestlemania and doesn't even show up to Raw. The Usos have their rematch on Raw and lose. Solo is (in)directly responsible for the loss. Jimmy or Jey will think it was intentional, the other will defend Solo and Solo just won't give a shit about either of them, leading to Jimmy vs Jey vs Solo at Backlash.
Splitting up the WWE/Universal Championships: Cody, KO and Sami kick off the Raw after Wrestlemania. They congratulate each other and speak about being able to band together to do the unthinkable and take down the Bloodline. Cody says that Roman has gone dark and while he's sure their paths will cross again, he's thinking about the now. He's thinking about Backlash. He's claimed he would be a fighting champion and he's a man of his word. Cody looks to KO and Sami and offers them both an opportunity to fight for both the WWE and Universal championships at Backlash in a two-fall triple threat match.
At Backlash, the first fall is for the Universal Championsip and KO seizes the opportunity to screw over Sami and pin him. The second fall has Cody retaining the WWE Championship after Cody takes advantage of KO and Sami getting into it.
Raw after Backlash/Draft Night/Tag Team Chapionship split: KO kicks off Raw and explains his actions. He told Sami and he told the world multiple times prior to Wrestlemania that he had no interest in teaming with Sami but Sami wouldn't listen. Owens eventually realized he is an opportunist and more importantly, a prizefighter. He saw an opportunity to not only make history at Wrestlemania at the expense of the Bloodline, but also to win a Championship.
The exact same opportunity presented itself at Backlash and KO seized it once again. He used Sami, twice, simple as that. KO becomes exclusive to Smackdown as a result of being the Universal Champion.
KO throws down his Raw Tag Team Championship and demands that Sami retrieve it and give him the other half of the Smackdown Tag Team Championships so they can be done with each other and move on.
Sami comes out and obliges under the condition that he gets a shot at Owens for the Universal Championsip in the main event of the night. If Sami wins, he takes the Universal and Smackdown Tag Team Championships to Smackdown and Owens remains on Raw with the Raw Tag Team Championships.
The main event ends in a DQ when KO's new partner (maybe Bronson Reed to pair KO with a heavy) reveals himself. Cody comes out to make the save. Sami remains on Raw and the very next week he convinces Cody to be his new Raw Tag Team Championship partner. Either later that night or the very next week, Sami screws over Cody, deliberately losing them the Tag Team Championship and causing Cody to be pinned for the first time since his return (via the most devastating move in all of sports entertainment... the surprise roll-up) leading to Cody/Sami beginning a feud for the WWE Championship.

2023.03.29 08:59 julizie HELP! Playing with multiple households at the same time
This is the first time I played this far into a family in the Sims 4. This is a family that I started with 1 sim and now she and her partner have 3 children. One of them (the oldest) is old enough to go to college and I want to enroll him in student housing, this obviously creates a new household that I can't play with at the same times as my main household but I still want to play him at the university housing.
How do I manage to drive the son's storyline AND the main household's story line without compromising too much of the Sims development?

[Next] Memory transcription subject: Andes Savulescu-Ruiz, Human Director at the Venlil Rehabilitation and Reintegration Facility. Universal translator tech.
Date [standardized human time]: December 1, 2136
After Larzo left, I read the reports for a few of the children that didn't have translators yet. Something wasn't adding up. There were dozens of notes of "predator disease", with symptoms as broad as "inability to sit still" and "flat affect". I'd heard comments from the psych department about being shocked by how much aliens sucked at psych, but I didn't expect it to be so bad, especially given how good they were at neuro. It reminded me of "hysteria" diagnoses. The tag just became code for "freaked a nurse out once".
Once I read everyone's file, I put the helmet back on and headed to the North Wing (primarily staffed by Venlil and Zurulians) to check on them in person. I really needed a new visor. Putting it on and off all the time was proving to be a hassle. There were some new models I’d seen in “specialty human stores” near the refugee camps, where the visor had a stiff structure at the top and a loose cloth-like one at the bottom, allowing for ease of eating. It looked just like all the others from outside, while being vastly more comfortable. That seemed like something I could stand wearing all day.
I went through all the high-priority language-acquisition kids who'd gotten the implant. They were incredibly shy, and liked to huddle up close, but had taken well to them. Two of the smaller kids were holding up toy spaceships and making whooshing noises with them. The visiting teachers had already cleared most of them for starting classes here, and if they proved they could handle it, they might start attending a special education school outside the facility to help them with socialisation. A few of the boys, who tended to skew younger, were watching a screen together. Two girls and a boy were playing with construction blocks quietly. Some of the kids with implants were even attentively listening to one of the nurses read from a book and show them the pictures. None of them were any flavour of literate(obviously), but their impairments seemed minimal and likely to be reduced over time if given sufficient support.
It seemed we had gotten absurdly lucky. The other facilities had more catatonic kids. I counted two out in the corner with vacant eyes, but they were huddled together at least. Prosocial behaviour. Some others were twitchy and clearly hypervigilant, but they were responsive
Then I went through the ones with the scary scans. Like I suspected, the kids with "predator disease" just looked like kids to me. Maybe a little hyper or rambunctious, but they'd just discovered elbow-room. Both reactions made sense: huddle together for a sense of safety or explore everything everywhere all at once the moment you suddenly can.
It was reassuring! Just because a brain looks
fucked up, it doesn't mean it is
. Brains, especially those of children, are incredibly malleable. People with hemispherectomies live largely normal lives, after all. There were stories of concentration camp survivors complaining about the quality of their food within weeks of being freed.
Hedonic adaptation is often greater than we give it credit for. A creepy brain scan is just one data point. Watching them interact made me orders of magnitude more optimistic about their prospects.
Two of them were fighting over a toy with all their might. One eventually won and the other fell on her butt. The victor ran off and hid behind a filing cabinet. Instead of crying for help, the losing kid seemed to just glare and begin plotting her revenge. I couldn’t help but chuckle at the quiet seething coming from that adorable little fuzzball.
"Is this typical of them since their arrival?" I asked a human aide.
"Yeah. Kinda wild for Venlil, but I think that's probably better than the ones that are basically catatonic. Thoughts, Director?"
"I agree. But we might have to move them around soon. I'm a little concerned about some of the tags in their files."
She nodded and went to help someone else bring in a box of storybooks.
I found I kinda liked the deferential way in which the other doctors and nurses and aides treated me as I checked on them. "Yes, sir", "of course, Director Andes". Larzo just called me Andes, which was fine, but I liked feeling important sometimes.
One of the girls in the low priority group kept sneaking glances at me. She had a speckled pattern of dark spots on her white fur, with two big black shapes around her eyes and a round smaller one around her mouth. She reminded me of a dalmatian my neighbour had, when I was a kid. It was aggressively cute. She rushed up to the aide that was handing out snacks, made some growling noises and pointed at me.
Hmm. That must be one of the ones they said struggled with language.
"Oh that? That's the human director,” the nurse said, squatting down to be at eye level with the kid, then added in a hushed tone “don't get too close to the humans. They're predators
That seemed a little crazy to me (if she can call me a predator, can't I take off the stupid helmet? Was that not the information we were trying to keep from them?
Was I going to have to reprimand the anxiety-filled rabbit-sheep on her third day of work?) but the little girl with the spots didn't seem freaked out at all. She just kept staring at me.
It might have been a little creepy if she wasn't so adorable.
The nurses and aides--especially the Venlil ones--seemed most comfortable with the babies, who would be sent to adoptive homes soon enough, as they had the best chance of a smooth reintegration into Venlil society.
The older kids had a curfew, and specific meal times, but were otherwise encouraged to wander around the different sources of enrichment built into the first floor of the North Wing, from playgrounds to books, to a little room filled with data pads that had child-friendly cartoons. There were some classes, but the psych specialist had decided that after being so cooped up, the kids would struggle with the concept of freedom, and so we should make it as clear as possible that they now had it. I headed back to my office which existed in a smaller section between the two wings.
There were a few things in need of cleaning up, but they'd all been addressed. I took off my helmet and got to work on my first report to the Committee for Rescued Venlil Rehabilitation - Human Division (CRVR-HD).
Perhaps an hour into that process, I met my venlil counterpart. He passed by my office door and let out a startled squeak. He dipped into his office, left his bag inside, and poked his head into my office. I thought I saw a shadow move when he did, but I assumed I must have imagined it. That or it was some sort of space butterfly in the periphery of my vision.
I took a deep breath, which he found somehow intimidating
. I took another deep breath, to avoid getting pissed off by him finding breathing
"Hello, you are Doctor Karim, right?"
"Yes, yes, and you, um, you are, uh. Um." I couldn’t tell if he had genuinely forgotten my name, or if he was just that freaked out.
He frowned. "Not Doctor?"
I shrugged. "My university got blown up, so I'm not really sure what the status is on my credentials. But I did finish my doctorate, if that means anything to you."
He started shaking a little less and walked closer to me.
"Y-yes, I was-was told. Doctor Andes is fine, you have earned it."
I gave him a nod. He nodded back.
"I had, um, assumed that I would b-be um. Director of… this facility. I did not know what to expect of a human um, co-uh. Co-Director."
"To be honest, I don't know what to expect either. When they told me I would be spearheading this, I didn't think there would be a human division and a venlil division. I assume it's so you guys don't have to boss humans around if it freaks you out."
"Yes," Karvim said. "Yes, most certainly. And for your predatorial expertise." My what?
"These children. They have been reared–if we can call it that–by and among predators, for the most part. We do not know if they have acquired predator disease, but even that framework is currently being questioned. So your perspective will be vital. Not to mention you are known to communicate with the Arxur, which we… may have need of." He looked a little pissed off about that last part. I decided not to focus on it too much.
"...Good to know," I said, positively baffled about my supposed predatorial expertise
“I will begin my work now. Feel free to leave. It would be better to avoid unnecessary overlap,” he said. I realized then that he was expecting some sort of tagging in-and-out where we don't actually interact.
“We’ll have to discuss that later,” I said, “human sleep-wake cycles don’t map well onto venlil ones.
“So I’ve heard. Have a good rest of your shift,” he said, and headed out.
As though summoned by mention of “predatorial expertise”, Shaleth called me two minutes later, and nearly gave me a heart attack.
“Andes, I have been returned to my people in exchange for your pets. How are you finding them?” he said, like it was the most natural thing in the world! I nearly jumped out of my seat when he popped up.
“What the fuck? Doesn’t this shit have caller ID? What are you doing?” I scrambled to lower the volume and figure out the settings on the app.
“You are not happy to hear from me?” he asked, clearly a little miffed. Did he ask Asleth for my info?
“I’m at work
! You can’t just call me at work. I’m working with–”
“With the cattle, yes, the ones you like so much. I asked you how you were finding them,” he repeated, clearly not grasping the whole I am at work
“They’re… Doing as well as we could expect, Shathel. Some are better than others.”
“Well I hope they’re worth the effort. The lab meat you sent in exchange is really quite delightful, you know? I believe I understand now why the Chief Hunter is so eager to have an alliance with you Humans.”
“Well… Good. Cruelty-free, you know?”
“Ah, but sometimes the cruelty is the best part!” he said, like a whole-ass supervillain. I couldn’t help but laugh.
“Sure, Shaleth, sure, the brutal murder is the best part of eating,
” I said with a roll of my eyes.
“Spend enough time with those quivering creatures, and you’ll soon see it my way,” he said smugly. “Send me a message when you are not at work. I demand to know what has happened since you arrived on the most succulent of planets. You look healthy.”
He ended the call and I groaned, leaning back into my chair and rubbing my temples. I ran a hand through my hair, leaned back against my chair, and only then did I notice a little white tail, with little black spots peeking out from behind one of my bookcases.
“...Hey there, little lamb,” I said, a little concerned about how much of that she’d heard. I was pretty sure it was the same little girl who’d pointed me out to the nurse. She peeked out from behind one of my boxes of books, and stared directly at me. Still cute. “Did you need something?”
She didn’t say anything.
“...Should I call a nurse?”
“You know I don’t actually think you’re food, right? We’re not gonna eat you. Is this okay? Should I put my visor back on?”
The stare remained.
“...Alright, how about… I just go over here…” I slowly got off my seat and walked over to the door, “and I open the door… And then I back away so that–” In a blink, she scurried out of my office.
“...Well, that’ll be an interesting conversation with Dr. Vemla,” I muttered, and finished up my report. Once done and sent, I headed over to the Psych floor on the North Wing. Doctors Vemla and Rodriguez were having a heated discussion.
"--don't understand the needs of the Venlil. The signs! We are different from humans!"
"I know," Rodriguez said, trying to placate her. "But what I have seen thus far is entirely explicable through trauma, I don't want to write these children off."
"Then I should transfer them over to you," Vemla said pointedly, as if it was a threat.
"I don't see why not," Rodriguez said, giving her a little shrug.
"Everything good here?" I asked. Vemla was a little startled by my appearance, but seemed grateful suddenly.
"I fear we may be leaning a little too much into the human comfort with predatory behaviour," she said, "one of these children bit
another one. And the way they move their tails… as if they had weights attached to them. It's unnatural."
I nodded. "Okay… I believe the proposed course of action is wise, then. If you think these children are dangerous, they pose the least danger to human workers. Transfer them over to Rodriguez. We'll see about housing details when the South Wing is finished in a couple of days and they've stopped pouring in from the main hospitals."
"Very well," she said, looking suitably satisfied. "It will be a good way to test the efficacy of the human way of handling these cases."
"I agree," Rodriguez said.
"...Alright," I said, "Doctor Rodriguez, can we talk?"
She led me into her office, closed the door and took off her visor.
"One of the kids saw me talking to an Arxur," I said. She paled, then tried to force herself into a more neutral expression.
"Um. And why exactly–"
"It was a surprise call, I didn't know he had my info," I explained, hoping it didn't look too defensive.
"And the child, how are they?"
She looked at me curiously. "Fine? No crying, no shrieking, no shaking?"
"Yeah. I opened the door and she scurried out like a mouse caught with a cookie in a spotlight."
Rodriguez provided me with a patented Psychologist-grade "Interesting
"I thought so."
"Could you identify this child?"
"Oh sure. She looks like a dalmatian with big spots on her eyes and mouth."
She nodded. "Keep an eye out for her. I think I know who it is. I'll notify you when I have a session with her."
"Sounds good," I said, and headed out the door. "Good luck with your new patients."
She nodded. "Thank you, Director."
I decided to clock out and hit the gym after that. The notion of the gymnasium for recreational purposes seemed to be entirely alien to the Venlil. Soldiers exercised, as did exterminators (or, some of them, anyhow). But it seemed to be more of a duty than a desire, which is why the “gym” was just a room with a soft floor, a couple of small treadmills for testing purposes, weights, and–paid out of my own fucking pocket–a set of gymnastic rings. Between the prohibition of “predatory” pursuits like martial arts and the fact that everything was heavier and harder, I’d settled into an annoyingly difficult yoga routine.
Larzo came by at around the fourth pose. I shifted the weight from one leg to the other and he stared for three whole breaths.
“Can I help you?” I asked, glancing back at him before focusing on my form again.
“... Yes, I was… I was looking for you and thought you’d… Could I draw you, when you do this?” he asked.
“Sure?” I said, because what else do you say when an alien marsupial asks to draw your yoga poses? “Why were you looking for me?”
“Well, I noticed a curious pattern among some of the children and I thought we should have a meeting about it.”
“Schedule it with Karim,” I said. “I clocked out five minutes ago.”
Larzo scoffed. “As if he would listen to me. Come on, Andes.”
“Alright, I’ll schedule it during my next couple of shifts, now what do you–”
As I shifted to a “rainbow bridge” pose, looking at him upside down, I noticed two venlil little girls staring from behind the rack of weights. One was the one who’d been in my office, and the other one was black with a scruffy white band around her neck that didn’t reach her shoulders and white hair on top.
Their ears were startled up when they noticed me looking at them. I looked off to the side to see them better through a mirror instead of directly.
“What do I what?” Larzo asked. I slowly brought a finger to my lips. The girls had stopped looking at me so intently, and instead were facing each other and hissing, with the occasional growl or baring of teeth. Were they having an argument? Could they do that?
One of them saw I was still looking at them through their reflection and grabbed the other. They scurried out of sight. Only then did Larzo notice them.
“Oh. I saw one of them earlier. She had a scratch.”
“The one with the little spots snuck into my office. Cute, aren’t they?” I said, switching to a handstand as slowly as I could. “Sneaky too. I wonder what they’re up to.”

2023.03.29 08:58 IDigitalPreneurCum Ways to Earn More in an Affiliate Marketing Program.
| || |https://preview.redd.it/5plz74nammqa1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=fc8951bccf26f9405f6b9046bceaffd1fc3f7a7a submitted by IDigitalPreneurCum to u/IDigitalPreneurCum [link] [comments]
When selecting an affiliate program, it is important to be discerning and not assume that all programs are equal. One key consideration is whether the program is a good fit for your audience, which we will explore in more detail later on. Additionally, you should also consider:
Know Your Audience Values
- Prioritizing quality over commission rates: While it may be tempting to promote a lower-quality product that offers a higher commission, doing so could damage your reputation and make it harder to convert customers in the long run.
- Exploring digital product options: Some of the most lucrative affiliate programs are for digital products, such as e-books or online courses. These products often have high conversion rates since they can be accessed instantly, providing immediate gratification to buyers.
To effectively engage in affiliate marketing, it is important to have a deep understanding of your audience. While people generally don't hate ads, they dislike irrelevant and poorly targeted ones. For instance, if you run a fishing website, promoting computer ads would not make sense and could actually annoy and confuse your audience. Instead, it is important to promote products or services that align with the immediate needs and desires of your audience. By doing so, you increase the chances of them buying, and you also provide value-added content that educates and informs your audience. To achieve this, always consider why people are visiting your site, joining your email list, or following you on social media. Build Up Trust
As an affiliate marketer, it's important to be honest and transparent with your audience. While some marketers may resort to spammy or dishonest tactics to earn a profit, this can ultimately harm your reputation and drive away repeat visitors.
Instead, focus on promoting products and services that are genuinely relevant and beneficial to your audience. By being honest about your intentions and disclosing any affiliate links, you can build trust with your readers and establish a loyal following.
To further demonstrate your trustworthiness, consider addressing any weaknesses or limitations of the products or services you're promoting. By acknowledging these shortcomings and providing workarounds or solutions, you can show that you have your audience's best interests in mind and are committed to providing valuable content.
Ultimately, building long-term relationships with your audience is the key to success in affiliate marketing. By prioritizing their needs and being honest and transparent in your promotions, you can earn their trust and establish a strong, loyal following.
Regenerate response Consider providing a bonus
Being transparent about your affiliate relationships is essential to building trust with your audience. When you disclose your affiliations, your readers will appreciate your honesty and may even be more inclined to use your link to support your bottom line.
However, it's important to remember that consumers still have the option to go directly to the vendor even after you've disclosed your affiliate relationship. To incentivize them to use your link, consider offering an additional incentive, such as a bonus or discount, to those who make a purchase through your affiliate link. This can help differentiate you from other competing affiliates and boost your sales. Make Several Kind of Advertising
As an affiliate marketer, you'll likely be provided with a variety of ads to use on your website, social media channels, and email campaigns. However, it's important to remember that standing out from the competition is key to success.
To differentiate yourself, consider creating your own unique ads in addition to the provided assets. It's also important to frequently rotate your ads and test different versions to see what resonates best with your audience.
To streamline this process, consider using an ad rotator plugin that automatically rotates your ads and tracks clicks. By using this tool, you can quickly eliminate underperforming ads and make room for new ones that have the potential to be more profitable. Maintain Your Advertising Strategy Current
To maximize your success as an affiliate marketer, it's crucial to remain proactive in your ad strategy. This means staying informed about the latest product and service offerings from your affiliate programs and regularly updating your ads accordingly (or creating your own if allowed).
Additionally, it's essential to keep up with current trends and be open to exploring new opportunities. For instance, if a previously popular weight-loss pill or clothing trend is no longer trending, replace that content with something fresh and relevant to your audience.
Always be on the lookout for new and useful products that align with your audience's interests and needs. By expanding the range of products you promote, you can increase your earning potential as an affiliate marketer. Make excellent content
- As an affiliate marketer, it's important to recognize that content is the key to attracting and engaging your audience. To maximize your success in this regard, keep the following things in mind:
- Firstly, focus on creating evergreen content that will always be relevant and valuable to your audience. While occasional updates to links or specific information may be necessary, the majority of your content should be timeless.
- Secondly, take advantage of trending topics by creating new content that appears in a "most recent" or "most popular" section if your platform allows it.
- Finally, when creating content around your affiliate products or services, ensure that it remains relevant, entertaining, useful, and informative. Consider product or service reviews, personal testimonials, case studies, or interviews with individuals involved with the product or service. However, never compromise the integrity of your content to cater to affiliate programs, as doing so risks alienating your audience.
When evaluating a platform for affiliate marketing, it's important to consider factors such as the variety and quality of affiliate programs available, the commission rates offered, the tools and resources provided to help you promote the products or services, and the level of support and training offered to affiliates.
When it comes to affiliate marketing and online earning, it's important to choose a platform that has a good reputation and track record.

2023.03.29 08:57 zuppor How much does pci-e interface speed matters for a pci-e NIC?
I would like to add a custom routefirewall at home, but I don't want to spend full price on a new machine, so I thought of virtualizing pfsense on my server with proxmox.
On this pc I only have pci-e 3.0, in the form of an x16 and two x1 slots.
If I would like to leave the x16 slot free for a possible gpu even if I dont really need it at the moment for jellyfin transconding since I can use quicksync in the cpu for that. So I will probably need two nics with two 2.5gbit ports each at least, one for wan and the other three for and AP and my main pc and the third maybe a switch.
How much does the bandwith of the slots matter to choose a pcie nic with the right amount of ports at 2.5gbit?
In particular, when does the speed of the interface matter? (I.e. when a clients wants to access the internet? Or when clients connected to ports on the same nic transfer files? And what about clients on different nics?

2023.03.29 08:57 Ryangoslingirl My First Love
Yes. I know we didn’t match well. She wasn’t a good communicator, I was. Yes, I know we wanted different things. Yes, I know she tried leaving me multiple times and I reeled her back in. Yes, I know it was only a year. Yes, I know our sex life wasn’t the best. Yes, I know I should let her go. Yes, I know that she wasn’t exactly the prettiest. Or the smartest. Or the best match for me in general. But she listened to me. When I would ramble on and on about the things I liked. When I would rant about my beliefs. When I would gossip about people we knew. When I would talk about how much I hated myself. She always said I was special and that I shouldn’t be so hard on myself. She did that for me. I know I put in more effort than she did. I know I put in more effort than her. I know there’s other fishes in the sea. But she was mine and I had never been treated that way before. My first time, first kiss, first time I felt comfortable crying in front of someone. I was there whenever she would have a panic attack. I was the first boy to treat her well. All for her to leave anyway. I don’t know. This is a moment of weakness I guess. Just needed to let it out.

2023.03.29 08:57 Languorous-Owl Who else thinks that the dialogue is a tad bit cringe?
Now, I must preface this rant by mentioning that I read translations as well as watch subs which are translated from OG Japanese. So perhaps the words in the OG Japanese have different connotations and tones.
But assuming that the translations correspond reasonably close to the Japanese text, I wish that the dialogues and internal monologues were a bit more dour.
Whether it's the more "unique" phrases like devour, chemical reaction or even generic sports manga stuff like rival, sugoi, strong, or evolve (particularly "evolve", oh god), these things get popped out so liberally by characters every two seconds, particularly during matches, it straight up goes into meme territory.
Someone does anything slightly different on the field and immediately someone launches into "my rival is EVOLVING, so sugoi, so this is 's Ego/special weapon/evolution, they're getting farther and farther away, BUT I WILL ACHIEVE MY DREAMS AND EVOLVE, DESU!!!!".
Someone is "EVOLVING" every two seconds, as dutifully noted by internal monologues in the same tenor as the above, of 2 or 3 different characters at the same time.
Not only is it cringe, but the words themselves start losing meaning in this way.
Yes I get that it's intense competition with very high personal stakes, but even in such a situation, I doubt sane people would constantly talk like this. At times, it almost feels like someone asked chatGPT to come up with lots of "sporty and positive rivalry themed dialogue".
The only main characters that seem to be immune to this are Ego and Anri.
Frankly it's a notable weakness of this other wise damn good series.

2023.03.29 08:56 T1-Woodenman Do I (22m) need to accept the state of my relationship with my gf (22f)
Me and my gf have been together for almost 5 years now and one major factor that I feel has affected my relationship with her is the sex.
She has a lower libido than me and as we’ve seen many of times on Reddit that has an affect on us. I feel like I’ve tried so many different things to understand how she works but I’ve pretty much come to a dead end.
We’ve spoken about the issue many times through our relationship and it often just ends with her apologising.
We have sex maybe every 2 weeks at best, where as I’d be up for every few days easily. When we do she almost always cums and if she doesn’t we get the viabrator out for the assist. I don’t think it’s that we have bad sex and she’s dissatisfied.
The main reasons we have spoke about and that I have noticed for her low drive are:
- her anxiety is a big issue, she runs her own small business which I understand comes with lots of mental strain. I help her with it all when and wherever I can. She’s trying to get anti-anxiety medication but I’m concerned that may lower her drive further from what I’ve seen in other Redditor’s posts. But I know it can affect everyone differently so I’ll have to see.
- She’s quite poor at communicating what she likes and wants. When we talk about sex and likes and dislikes she becomes very prudish and always says “idk what I like” and is often unwilling to explore. Even during sex I ask she wants and how she wants to be etc and it’s often a “Idm”, she doesn’t guide either when in the moment so I have little idea if I’m doing something she likes.
- She gets distracted VERY easily, if the bed is even making the slightest bit of noise she’s completely out of the moment and distressed by it. If I’m trying to make a move she’s be suddenly sucked into the TV when she normally doesn’t even watch it.
I’ve tried various things such as books to understand how she works and the science behind it (Emily Nagasaki’s come as you are). I’ve recently been going to the gym this year which she requested might make her more attracted to me but although I’ve lost a few stone and have gotten bigger nothing has changed. I’ve tried to destress her before making moves to take the mental load of everything else away from her but it doesn’t seem to help.
We have a very good relationship together and love each other very much but as the standard with this kind of post is it puts a lot of strain on my relationship with her when we’re are not intimate and I’m so oftenly rejected and feel she doesn’t find me attractive etc. I’m just tired of sneaking off and busting one into the toilet.
My point is I shouldn’t expect my situation to change should I? I’m half hoping she has some kind of sexual breakthrough and is suddenly an animal for me. But I feel that’s unrealistic.
I just want to hear other peoples takes on my situation. I may head over to dead
bedroom but I feel like that’s accepting defeat.
Any feedback is welcomed.

2023.03.29 08:56 ItsSimpler What if Rome colonized California? During Justinian’s plague Justinian decided to build a grand fleet 150-250 ships ( 15-25k men and women) and sail east to establish trade and start a new beginning? Got lost in the pacific and landed in California in 553.
Say around 10,000 Roman’s of Greek, Gothic, and Latin ancestry survived and landed in San Francisco and other parts of the west coast. What do you think would happen?

2023.03.29 08:55 AceThePrincep Can the Idris Railgun be used against Ground Targets?
That'd be pretty sweet dude. Having an Artillery spotter with your attached ground units calling in the heat on entrenched positions. Pounding dirt like Zeus's Lightning. Cool as heck.
Not sure what the mechanics would be. Ultra zoom on the Idris? Calculate the distance and the angle? Do some field trig? lol. EAST 150m, SOUTH 30m, Distance 4350m, ADJUST xyz DEGREES bla bla bla'. would be sweet as dudes. Just duct tape Hubble to the Foc's'le . Man I ain't scared. lol.
I remember it was in a Star Wars book too. In the Yuuzhan Vong saga, they baited the spooky bad guys into a ground attack then pounded em with a Star Destroyer barrage and was all like SUCK IT NERDS. lol.
