Hey everyone on here complaining, I am saying this coming from being in your position not too long ago. I remember the early days of small item orders with less then 2 MI drop offs worth $17-18. My wife and I went exploring one week after scouting out tbe demographics of the zone nearest to where she lived. I was aiming for an area heavily populated with upscale customers and preferably difficult for others to reach or discouraging in some way, or unthought of in some way. I found my answer playing around with the app one night as I was shopping for myself at the publix closest to my wife's house as I flipped the app on just to see. I had never tried this publix beforeb because my wife's neighborhood and surrounding area were not the best in town. I was amazed when I saw 5-6 orders with less then 10 (usually < 5) with drop off distsncences all so close to the exact same distance it couldnt be coincidencental. Upon further investigation of each drop off location, I happened across an island like strip right off a major highway near an international airport. On this island there were so many wealthy neighborhoods and upscale apartments all piled ontop of one another and absolutely no grocery stores or restaurants within reach without jumping onto that mess of a highway. The publix nearest to this area I knew very well and I'm sure many of you in the Tampa area know well also. The publix on Kennedy was unique in demographics as was in design. It was one of the smallest yet fastest publix I ever shopped at, however with great strengths come great weakness, this stores being constant shortages of inventory as the day went on. This proved to be a big enough issue in the fulfillment of orders and maximazion of potential profits that Instacart needed to take action. Their solution was simple, redirect to a larger, even higher demand store that was well adept at handling large surges of demand, coinciding with the surging demand of the previously mentioned islands inhabitants. (Late night snacks, wines, fruits, etc). On a map and on paper you wouldn't even think this publix would even be considered, but because of both locations proximity to the major highway, as well as the lack of traffic at that time of night and minimal lights maybe 2 or 3 between the two with a speed limit of 70 mph (if you go 70 in florida you literally will be run over so doing 80-90 mph is nothing to police or the grandma in the car behind you flipping you off because you are only going 82 miles per hour and "you" are the reason she is late to watch the same episode of jeopardy she watches every night. Oh and by the way there are Lanes on either side of me open...) the trip duration was less then 10 minutes and there back was less then 15 total. Seeing the potential my wife and I decided to take advantage of the situation and used our one car two person steategy to shuttle as many of these effortless and lucrative orders as we possibly could (5-10 items usued to take me maybe 5-10 minutes often less then 5 minutes to have shopped, checked out, baggeded and loaded worth $15-20 per batch. Let's do some math, it takes 5 - 10 min to shop and another 10 -15 to get there and back. At worst you are looking at $15.00 for 25 minutes or around 35 an hour and at best around $80.00 an hour (and these are hours of breezy work with high chances of 5 stars as well tip increases and cash tips.) Point being is start thinking outside of the box everyone. Go where others aren't, see what others haven't, learn your area and use every resource / strength you have to find a solution and reach your goals. If your goal is you want better or more batch opportunities then ask yourself what am I willing to do in order to reach thus goal. If your answer isn't anything then you may not want this to be your job as badly as you will need to In order to get to the levels you desire to attain. Know that Instacart needs the majority of its active shoppers during surge demand time periods. Know also that there simply are not enough orders during the non peak hours quite yet (although I have noticed a steady increase) to sustain all of the desires of the active shoppers during non peak hours. What's the solution? Test everyone, see who is who and what is what, see who takes and completes the not so great orders with integrity, and start to merit out batches to those who have proven themselves)

Border guards to take over the protection of road connecting Lachin Corridor to Armenia – PM
“But since the road connecting the Lachin Corridor to the Republic of Armenia was not completely ready, a temporary route was launched that entered the territory of the Republic of Armenia through the Kornidzor Bridge, then again into the territory of Azerbaijan, then again into the territory of the Republic of Armenia. According to the agreement reached, this route was supposed to operate until April 1, 2023,” the Prime Minister said.
He emphasized that the border guard troops will be stationed at the state border of the Republic of Armenia in the same positions where the units of the Ministry of Defense were stationed until now.
PM Pashinyan said the Azerbaijani side tried to present the situation as another “blockbuster.”
“This approach is at least not constructive. No change in the Armenian positions has occurred as a result of all this, with the difference that we intend to protect the area in question, unlike before, through Border Guard troops. In other words, the change that takes place is as follows: from the same positions along the state border of the Republic of Armenia, the units of the Ministry of Defense will withdraw according to the plan, and units of the Border Guard troops will be deployed in their place. We made the same proposal to Azerbaijan as well, so that the same would happen on Azerbaijan’s side. I hope that this process will take place without provocations,” Nikol Pashinyan stated. https://en.armradio.am/2023/03/30/route-of-lachin-corridor-changes/
I have great hopes that the Azerbaijani forces will return to the designated places. Governor of Syunik
According to him, there is no panic in the border communities, but people are worried about the created situation.
Syunik Marz Governor Robert Ghukasyan has been in Tegh community for two days already. According to the report of the National Security Service, from April 1, the road connecting the territory of the Republic of Armenia to the Lachin Corridor will pass through the Kornidzor-Tegh route, only through the territory of the Republic of Armenia. According to the agreements reached yesterday between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the border guards of the two countries were to be deployed on both sides of the border along the above-mentioned section in the last days of March. According to the calculations of the Armenian side, the Azerbaijani side was located 100 to 300 meters ahead of the border at five points. "Radiolur" talked with Syunik Marz Governor Robert Ghukasyan. link
Against all challenges, we should not deviate from the development agenda of Armenia for a single moment. PM Pashinyan
Prime Minister of Armenia Nikol Pashinyan received the President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France, Laurent Wauquiez, and the delegation led by him, who were on a two-day visit to the Syunik Province, ARMENPRESS was informed from the Office of the Prime Minister.
"Of course, we are in a very difficult period, and our country and the region are experiencing very difficult times. In this sense, such visits are also very important in terms of conveying moral strength and support, including political. I would like to emphasize the importance of your visit to the starting point of the Lachin Corridor and the Syunik Province and, of course, your messages regarding the existing situation."
"I would also like to hear your impressions from the visit. I hope you have noticed that despite all the problems, we are making very serious investment projects in the republic, including in the Syunik Province. massive construction works are being carried out: roads, schools, kindergartens, other infrastructures, because our approach is that despite all the challenges, we should not deviate for a moment from the development agenda of Armenia. Recently, the European Union's investment and economic plan was launched in Syunik Province, which is extremely important. We also hope that the presence of the EU civilian mission along the Armenian-Azerbaijani border will become an additional factor contributing to stability and security. I welcome you once again."
The President of the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region of France said,
"Thank you very much, Mr. Prime Minister.
This is the second time we are meeting, and I have the greatest respect for what you are doing for Armenia in this very difficult period. Last time I was very impressed with your strength and your will to move forward with very specific plans.
You are asking about my impressions from this visit. first of all, I want to say that it was very important for us to go to the Syunik Province and be the first French local authority to establish cooperation with the region, because we understand very well how important Syunik is for the territorial integrity of Armenia."
The parties emphasized the consistent efforts of the international community towards stability and peace in the region.
The interlocutors also discussed the prospects for the development of multi-sector partnership and the expansion of trade and economic ties. In this regard, the signing of the Cooperation Agreement between the Syunik Province and the Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region on March 29 was highlighted.
The Prime Minister noted that the Armenian Government consistently continues the policy of balanced territorial development, and in this regard, attached great importance to the strengthening of decentralized cooperation with France and the exchange of experience between regions. Nikol Pashinyan referred to the reform agenda of the Government of Armenia, measures being implemented to improve the investment environment. Laurent Wauquiez thanked for the information, noting that French companies are interested in doing business in Armenia.
The sides exchanged ideas on opportunities for implementing joint projects in the fields of agriculture, healthcare, education, infrastructure, and renewable energy. https://armenpress.am/eng/news/1107672.html
Whoever attacks Syunik will be attacking Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes, says Laurent Wauquiez
“That’s why we decided to have a cooperation agreement between our region and Syunik province. The agreement was signed in a very meaningful place, in the Tatev Monastery. Cooperation will relate to healthcare, agriculture and education. I’ve said that whoever attacks Syunik will be attacking my region,” Wauquiez said, repeating his statement made at the signing ceremony earlier.
“This isn’t a dispute between two countries where borders aren’t clarified and it could last forever, this is a total disregard for human rights that are protected under all international conventions, this is a desire to destroy a nation, its culture and history, its memory. This is certainly Armenia’s struggle, Artsakh’s struggle, but this is also a bigger struggle, this is a struggle for all the values that we bear. This is a struggle for civilization and democracy. Protecting you means protecting all these values,” the French politician added.
He called for stronger reaction by the international community and international sanctions against Azerbaijani President Ilham Aliyev.
“It was decided not to buy Russian gas any more after the occupation of some parts of Ukraine, but is the Azerbaijani gas more acceptable? Why weren’t there any consequences for what happened, why are there no sanctions against the Aliyev regime? I share these questions with you and I am equally angered,” he said.
Wauquiez said that together with his 40-member delegation he visited Syunik province. “All members of my delegation can now say, I have been there, I have seen what’s happening, I know what’s happening. The Azerbaijani troops came and captured the parts from the sovereign territory of Armenia where we went just one day earlier.” https://armenpress.am/eng/news/1107640.html

France’s Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes region to attempt humanitarian convoy passage into blockaded Nagorno Karabakh
“In 2019, we met with representatives of Artsakh and signed a cooperation agreement between my region and Artsakh. We’d adopted a political position in my region to confirm Artsakh’s right to independence, which led to serious pressures by Pan-Turkist terrorist organizations against me and my family. Why am I here today? Because I am well aware that the entire international attention is on Ukraine and there is a serious danger for Armenia and Artsakh to be forgotten in all of this. I am here to say that we are not forgetting you, you are not alone, and we shouldn’t allow the violations of international law in Armenia, Artsakh and Lachin Corridor to go unnoticed in silence,” Wauquiez said.
The President of the Regional Council of Auvergne-Rhône-Alpes visited the entrance of the blockaded Lachin Corridor in Syunik to show to his countrymen the violations of international law, that 120,000 people on the other side are deprived of basic human rights.
“I was with the Governor of Syunik the moment he was notified that an advance had taken place the day before where we were located at that time [Tegh village]. I have witnessed and can testify about the violation of international law. I have also seen the Azerbaijani flags hoisted on the heights located in Armenian lands. And I had the chance to speak with displaced persons of Artsakh, whose words were deeply touching. As a politician, it is my duty to take action and be able to help you,” he said.
Wauquiez said that they want to organize a humanitarian convoy jointly with the organizations representing the Armenian community of France and try to deliver humanitarian aid to Artsakh.
“The convoy will be organized with our region’s support and will bear our region’s flag. It will approach the Lachin Corridor and we will demand passage to Artsakh. Either the convoy will pass and we will have a ray of hope, or the convoy will be barred and it will give us the opportunity to present this issue before international and European organizations, that once again the international law is being violated, and that actions must be taken,” Wauquiez added. https://armenpress.am/eng/news/1107638.html

Azerbaijan has advanced troops 100 to 300 meters in five points, Armenia’s National Security Service says
After August 2022, a part of the road connecting the Lachin Corridor to Armenia was still passing through the Azerbaijani territory after the Kornidzor Bridge. That part of the road and its adjacent territory were controlled by the Russian peacekeeping forces.
According to the agreements reached yesterday between Armenia and Azerbaijan, the border guards of the two countries were to be deployed on both sides of the border along the above-mentioned section in the last days of March.
According to the NSS, there has been “misreading of maps” and in some places, the Azerbaijani side, without waiting for pre-arranged adjustments, started positioning and carrying out engineering works.
“According to the calculations of the Armenian side, there are five points, where the Azerbaijani side has advanced troops 100 to 300 meters further from the border. It has now been agreed that cartographers from both sides will correct the situation,” the National Security Service said.
“The Armenian side approaches the situation with the logic of not allowing escalation,” it added.
“The Armenian army did not have positions in the area in question, because positions are not located on the border line, but on the nearby strategic heights. And the protection of that part of the border should be transferred to the border guard troops, according to the agreement mentioned above,” SNS stated. https://en.armradio.am/2023/03/30/azerbaijan-has-deployed-troops-100-to-300-meters-across-the-border-in-five-points-armenias-national-security-service-says/

Mher Sahakyan approached me and hit me without saying anything. Vladimir Vardanyan about the incident in the parliament
"The session of the committee was proceeding normally, at one point the process of discussion was disturbed, the MPs started talking quite loudly and I tried to urge Artsvik Minasyan and the rest of the MPs to return to the substantial discussion. After that, in response to my legitimate demand, MP Mher Sahakyan said that I cannot raise my voice against them, and I said that I was conducting the session and continue to conduct it. He approached me (we were already standing) and attacked me without saying anything, hit me and ran away," said Vardanyan.
According to Mher Sahakyan, as a result of the blow, a rather significant cut occurred in the eyebrow area. Vardanyan does not rule out that the blow was made with some kind of tool.
"It was quite a hard blow. I haven't passed the forensic examination yet, I will probably do it tomorrow," concluded Vardanyan. https://armenpress.am/eng/news/1107687.html

Armenia remains committed to the peace process with Azerbaijan’ – PM Pashinyan at Summit for Democracy 2023
"Along with strengthening the democratic institutions in our country, in September, 2022, we had to encounter an aggression against the internationally recognized territory of the Republic of Armenia, which resulted in the occupation of part of our sovereign territory by Azerbaijan. It was back in September that we felt the union of democracies and the clear condemnation of aggression against Armenia. I want to take this opportunity and extend our gratitude to the United States and other partners that helped us stop the further incursion through diplomatic engagement."
"Armenia feels strongly about the human rights violations across the world and there is a lot that we need to do together to prevent genocides, ethnic cleansings and atrocities. Whatever is happening with Armenians in Nagorno-Karabakh today, the blockade of the Lachin corridor by Azerbaijan and the humanitarian crisis resulted by it, is definitely an attempt of ethnic cleansing of Armenians in NK. And we cannot turn a blind eye on that. At the same time, I reiterate that Armenia remains committed to the peace process with Azerbaijan. We are convinced that there is no alternative to the peaceful development of the region and that sticking to democratic values will help us find a way to peace." https://armenpress.am/eng/news/1107479.html

Any NATO expansion needs the support of all its members.
Finland will now be formally admitted into NATO at its next summit, taking place in July in Lithuania.
In a statement following the Turkish vote, the Finnish government said joining the alliance would strengthen the country's security, and improve stability and security in the region.
But his ongoing hostility to Sweden was clear - as he again accused the country of embracing Kurdish militants and allowing them to demonstrate on the streets of Stockholm.
Finland, a country with a 1,340km (832 mile) border with Russia and one of the most powerful arsenals of artillery pieces in Western Europe, is ditching its neutrality and joining the alliance in response to Russia's invasion of Ukraine, which Moscow describes as a “special military operation.”

Saw lots of posts complaining about WildCard reselling Ark I remastered and delayed Ark II by a year and a half.
Went to check out the news myself, aren’t they selling Ark I remastered and Ark II in a bundle for $49.99? That’s really not a high price for a new title atm given industry standards have risen to $69.99, plus you get a remastered Ark I and early access to closed beta so not a bad deal imo.
For the expansion maps, I’d say depends on the quality of those remastered graphics, but nothing too outrageous.
I’m not happy with the delay, but hope this promises high quality gameplay. The animation series has been in post-production in a long time it seems, and is not being released due to them not secure any deals with platforms? The lack of update on that is more infuriating to me honestly.
Hi everyone! I am a first year law student (22F) moving from Portland, OR to MO for a summer internship. While my office will be in Jefferson City, I was recommended to live in Columbia for a more small college town feel that I am used to from my hometown in Northern California. I'm coming in completely blind and would greatly appreciate help in explaining what Columbia is like and what neighborhoods would be both affordable yet bustling for a young professional from the west coast.
I would prefer a place near a "downtown" sort of area near local college students in order to adjust and find community. I also would appreciate an area with easy access to the highway to commute to my internship in Jefferson City and hopefully with surrounding nature as I am an avid fan of the outdoors.
This of course is all ideal, as I have no idea what the city is like. Any help at all would be greatly appreciated, thank you all so much!
