so i’m in my first trimester with our first (and only) kid, and i’ve had so much nausea and my headaches have only gotten worse, and i’m hungry all the time, and anytime i mention it, he’s so quick to grab his keys and run out the door to go get me whatever i need. 😭 he’s truly the best husband (and baby daddy) ever. and he does it with joy! he’s happy to take care of me 😭. (mind you we live in florida and he drives a 93’ 240sx project car with no ac) i truly couldn’t ask for anyone better 🖤

2023.06.06 21:59 myKDRbro_ Seven months after calling Gerrit Cole the "biggest cheater in baseball history," Alek Manoah is demoted to the the rookie league.
Following another disastrous start Monday, the Toronto Blue Jays have optioned right-hander Alek Manoah to the Florida Complex League, the team announced Tuesday. Righty Bowden Francis was called up in a corresponding move. Link
The FCL is rookie ball and the lowest level of the minor leagues, and typically features young players who are very early in their pro careers, oftentimes teenagers. Games are played on the backfields at each MLB's organization's spring training complex and Manoah is essentially being sent down to the team's spring complex to work with coaches.

2023.06.06 19:27 ir1379 NYT article from 1971
THE compulsive gambler sub consciously wants to lose his shirt, of course, along with everything else he owns, and so he again and again puts down the rent money on the Montreal Expos or 80‐to‐1 2‐year‐old maiden fillies wear ing blinkers and bandaged forelegs. And if he's nothing else, Walter Matthau, the 50‐year‐old stage and movie actor, is a compulsive gambler. A few years ago, for instance, while in Florida to film episodes of a TV series called “Tallahassee 7000,” Matthau breath‐takingly managed in a mere two weeks to drop no less than $183,000. He lost the money, moreover, not by backing crippled nags at Hialeah but mainly instead by betting on the outcome of spring training baseball games, a way of tossing bundles of money out the window that should surely that year have won him the Nobel Prize for masochism.
Since dropping that $183,000, sum that eventually took, him six years to pay off to his increa ingly impatient Mafia ‐ connected book maker, Matthau has cut down con siderably on the amounts that he bets, especially when he goes to race tracks, and on a good day at Holly wood Park he can now come happily home having lost only $400 or $580.
Still, he continues casually to bet thousand dollars or so on things like N.B.A. play‐off games or whether or not a friend can name the capital of Albania, and so remains a prime example of the evils of gambling to all those New Yorkers who are thinking of taking a first‐time fling at the ponies because of an easy access these days to offtrack betting windows in Grand Central Station and elsewhere. “I think that off‐track betting is great for New York,” dryly remarked Matthau during a recent three‐day visit to the city from his home in California. “I mean, it's so democratic—if they keep up off‐track betting long enough, every body in town will be on welfare.”
Of course, though he has the mo rose, hangdog look of a chronic loser, Matthas is scarcely a loser in everything he gets mixed up in. Far from it, as a matter of fact. For example, when signing contracts for his last several movies he chose to gamble on accepting a percentage of the profits in lieu of a salary, and at least one of these gambles has al ready handsomely paid off—his per centage of “Cactus Flower,” a film he made a couple of years ago with Ingrid Bergman and Goldie Hawn, has so far amounted, to more than a million dollars. And he's also on the way to making another million or so as his share of the profits from each of his two most recent pictures—“A New Leaf,” a wacky comedy in which he is co‐starred with Elaine May, and “Plaza Suite,” the film version of Neil Simon's exceedingly successful Broadway play. So, unlike almost every other compulsive gamb er in the country, Matthau is nowadays just about literally rolling in money. Besides, pleased with the way that his career is going, with his marriage, with his three children, and with his seaside home in Pacific Palisades, Calif., Matthau is even happy, an emotion not normally associated with the compulsive gambler.
HOW does a compulsive gambler get to be one? The story of Matthau's life is perhaps an object lesson to all of those who have lately been spend ing their lunch hours in Grand Cen tral Station to wait in line for the dubious privilege of giving away their money to Howard Samuels and his Off track Betting Corporation. In any event, Matthau was born on the lower East Side of Manhattan on Oct. 1, 1920, the son of an impoverished Russian‐Jewish immigrant from Kiev, in the Ukraine, and of a Lithuanian born Jewish mother.
When Matthau was 3 years old, and his older brother, Henry, was 5, his father, a worker at such odd jobs as serving subpoenas for law firms, lit out for parts unknown, leaving him and his brother to be raised by their mother, Rose, who managed to scrape a marginal living for herself and her sons by working as a sewing machine operator in garment district sweatshops. In 1935, when Matthau was 15 years old, he learned of his father's death in Bellevue Hospital. His mother is still living, and—sup ported in the grand manner by her sons (Matthau's brother lives now on Long Island and is a jobber of surplus Army‐Navy goods)—divides her time these days between a penthouse on West End Avenue and a condo in Miami Beach.
During his childhood, Matthau, his brother and his mother lived in succession of cold‐water tenement apartments in the Ukrainian area of the Lower East Side, that is, around East Fifth Street near Second Av enue, being forced to vacate each apartment after only a few months because they'd got so hopelessly far behind in the rent that their land lord would have them evicted. Years later, when Matthau briefly sublet Paul Newman's house in Hollywood for $3,700 per month, he recalled with a shake of his head that $3,700 was more money than the Matthau family had spent on rent during 20 years on the Lower East Side. Mat thau, however, hasn't the slightest nostalgia these days for his poverty ridden childhood. “It was a night mare—a dreadful, horrible, stinking nightmare,” he grimly remembers.
On the Lower East Side, Matthau recalls, the highest ambition of most of his class ates was some day to become a salesman for a garment district dress house, for he himself secretly had far more exalted am bitions — by the age of 8, a day dreamer, a loner, a reader of Shake speare, he'd already determined to become a famous writer and actor. Encouraged by a teacher who ad mired his speaking voice, Matthau appeared in a number of school plays and also regularly recited poetry in school assemblies. On East Fifth Street, anyone who evinced an interest in poetry was thought by his classmates to be seriously lacking in machismo, and Matthau often found himself getting beaten up at recess by schoolyard bullies. So, already feet tall by the age of 10 (he weighed only 90 pounds, however, and, says Matthau, who is today 6 feet 3 inches tall and weighs 180 pounds; “when I drank cherry soda, I looked like thermometer”), he put himself through a regimen of muscle‐building until “I had Popeyelike bumps on my skinny arms and could beat up any body who made snide remarks about my poetry reading.”
When Matthau was 11 years old, in fact, one of those whom he alleges to have beaten up in the schoolyard was none other than Rocky Graziano, who grew up, of course, to become the middleweight boxing champion of the world. Of Matthau's claim to having beaten up Graziano, one can unequivocally make the following statement: The story either is or is not true.
IN any event, along with being a compulsive gambler, Matthau is also something of a compulsive stretcher of the truth. Or, to put it perhaps a bit more tactfully, a compulsive weaver of fiction when it comes to talking about his past. For example, bored with repeating the story of his life over and over again to interview ers, Matthau has on more than one occasion told newspapermen and magazine writers that his father was a defrocked Russian Orthodox priest who'd had to flee for his life from Czarist Kiev in 1906 because he'd been preaching sermons in support of Pope Pius X. And this story, told by Matthau to interviewers with an absolutely straight face, has appeared several times as the God's truth in such usually accurate publications as Time and Current Biography.
NOT long ago, too, when Matthau was in New York for a round of newspaper, maga zine, radio and TV interviews to promote “Plaza Suite,” chanced to be in earshot when he told a story to Neil Simon that he'd heard the night be fore from Gene Saks, the director, about a somewhat aging and hard ‐ of hearing actor who'd had trouble re membering his lines in a play last winter at the Palm Beach Playhouse in Florida. So, as Matthau told the story to Si mon, a prompter, unseen by the audience, was hidden in a hole cut into the front of the stage and instructed to call out only key words to the actor when a line was for gotten. “Drastic,” whispered the prompter when the actor went up in his lines on the opening night of the play. From the hard ‐ of ‐ hearing actor, no response. “Drastic,” repeated the prompter in a somewhat louder voice. Again, no response. “Drastic,” the prompter now all but shouted. Still no response, upon which a man in the second row of the orchestra stood up and yelled “Dastic!” The actor heard him, smiled, remem bered his line, and the play went on.
As show‐biz stories go, not bad. Not so great, either. The following evening, however, happened to be on hand when Matthau was being inter viewed by David Frost on Frost's TV talk show and was asked, “What was your most embarrassing moment in the theater?” And, without batting an eyelash, Matthau pro ceeded to tell the “drastic” story as though it was some thing that had happened to him years ago on Broadway.
He concocts personal anec dotes that aren't true, Mat thau later somewhat abashedly told me, because they liven up otherwise boring inter views and make his past seem more colorful than it really was. “Like saying that my father was a Catholic priest — I figure that makes me more interesting than just another Jewish actor who had a pair of Jewish parents,” Matthau explained to me with a grin. “Jewish and Catholic— if I can just work a Protestant into my background, I'm all set.”

2023.06.06 19:08 xmanlilduck Florida teachers - any idea when 2022/23 spring FAST test score results will be ready?
My kids took year-end state Math / ELA exams a month or so ago, but no results yet. Only the fall and December 2022 scores are available on the state family portal.
I’ve tried poking around online for more information, but Florida isn’t always the “transparency in open government” sunshine state that it once tried to be.
Edit: I called the district and they said that while the information “should” be available to parents in Family Portal, the state wouldn’t give the district the information for another 2 months shrug
I appreciate the comments from how the rest of the state is faring a bit better! Our fall and winter scores were immediate too, not sure what happened this time

2023.06.06 17:48 Comoish ‘It’s been a total witch-hunt. It takes its toll’: the LGBTQ+ families fleeing red states
‘Do we need to flee the United States?’
In Maryland, Camille Rey’s son’s health has improved, while in Oregon, one year on from their move, Karen says her family is much happier. She has noticed a trend, though, among her new blue state neighbors, of talking about anti-LGBTQ+ laws as an “over there” problem.
The reality is that anti-LGBTQ+ sentiment is not limited geographically. Pride parades continue to be attacked. Shootings like that in Colorado Springs show that LGBTQ+ lives are at risk everywhere. Factions of the Republican party are pushing for a national “don’t say gay” bill. In the wake of Ron DeSantis’s 2024 presidential run announcement, campaigners worry that even blue states may not provide safety or shelter for queer people for long.
“The 14th amendment has been gutted with the overtaking of Roe v Wade. If the 14th amendment goes, our right to marriage and our freedom from sodomy laws, all that could go on a national level,” says McCranie. “So if we flee the state, but our rights go on a national level, the question becomes: do we need to flee the United States? I’m asking people I know: do you have a parent or grandparent from another country? You should go get that passport now.”
Mitchell and her wife are aiming to move to Minnesota due to its proximity to Canada, just in case. (Justin Trudeau has shown support for trans communities.) Rodriguez explains that she chose to leave the country, rather than Texas, so that she only has to move once. “My fear with the safe states is, what if the US passes federal anti-LGBTQ+ laws?” she says. “I had one house to sell, I had to do it to fund to go anywhere, so I should go where I don’t have to worry about what happens at the next election.”

2023.06.06 16:07 JoshAsdvgi THE OLD WOMAN OF THE SPRING
| || | submitted by JoshAsdvgi to Native_Stories [link] [comments]
THE OLD WOMAN OF THE SPRING
This tale about the gifts of corn and buffalo to the Cheyenne is related to the legend which follows it about Arrow Boy.
In the Cheyenne manner, a storyteller will say, "Let's tie another story to the end of this one," and go on from there. North, as it is spoken of at the beginning of both tales, is a nostalgic reference to the Cheyenne hunting grounds in north-central America, from which
they were driven by invading tribes, probably the Ojibway.
When the Cheyenne were still in the north, they camped in a large circle at whose entrance a deep, rapid spring flowed from a hillside.
The spring provided the camp with water, but food was harder to find.
The buffalo had disappeared, and many people went hungry.
One bright day some men were playing the game of ring and javelin in the center of the camp circle.
'They used a red and black hoop and four long sticks, two red and two black, which they threw at the hoop as it rolled along.
In order to win, a player had to throw his stick through the hoop while it was still moving.
A large audience had already gathered when a young man came from the south side of the camp circle to join them.
He wore a buffalo robe with the hair turned outward.
His body was painted yellow, and a yellowpainted eagle breach-feather was fastened to his head.
Soon another young man dressed exactly like the first came from the north side of the circle to watch the game.
They were unacquainted, but when the two caught sight of each other they moved through the crowd to talk.
"My friend," said the man from the south side, "you're imitating my dress.
Why are you doing it?" The other man said, "It's you who are imitating me.
Why?" In their explanations, both men told the same story.
They had entered the spring that Howed out from the hillside, and there they had been instructed how to dress.
By now the, crowd had stopped watching the game and gathered around to listen, and the young men told the people that they would go into the spring again and come out soon.
As the crowd watched, the two approached the spring.
The man from the south covered his head with his buffalo robe and entered.
The other did the same.
The young men splashed through the water and soon found themselves in a large cave. Near the entrance sat an old woman cooking some buffalo meat and corn in two separate earthen pots.
She welcomed them: "Grandchildren, you have come. Here, sit beside me."
They sat down, one on each side of her, and told her that the people were hungry
and that they had come to her for food.
She gave them corn from one pot and meat from the other.
They ate until they had had enough, and when they were through the pots were still full. Then she told them to look toward the south, and they saw that the land in that direction was covered with buffalo.
She told them to look to the west, and they sawall kinds of animals, large and small, including ponies, though they knew nothing of ponies in those days.
She told them to look toward the north, and they saw corn growing everywhere.
The old woman said to them, "All this that you have seen shall be yours in the future. Tonight I cause the buffalo to be restored to you.
When you leave this place, the buffalo will follow, and your people will see them coming before sunset.
Take this uncooked corn in your robes, and plant it every spring in low, moist ground.
After it matures, you can feed upon it.
"Take also this meat and corn that I have cooked," she said, and when you have returned to your people, ask them to sit down to eat in the following order: First, all males, from the youngest to the oldest, with the exception of one .orphan boy; second, all females, from the oldest to the youngest, with the exception of one orphan girl.
When all are through eating, the rest of the food in the pots is to be eaten by the orphan boy and the orphan girl."
The two men obeyed the old woman.
When they passed out of the spring, they saw that their entire bodies were painted red, and the yellow breath-feathers on their heads had turned red.
They went to their people, who ate as directed of the corn and meat.
There was enough for all, and the contents of the pots remained full until they were passed to the two orphan children, who ate all the rest of the food.
Toward sunset the people went to their lodges and began watching the spring closely, and in a short time they saw a buffalo leap out.
The creature jumped and played and wIled, then returned to the spring.
In a little while another buffalo jumped out, then another and another, and finally they came so fast that the Cheyenne were 'no longer able to count them.
The buffalo continued to emerge all night, and the following day the whole country out in the distance was covered with buffalo.
The buffalo scented the great camp.
The next day the Cheyenne surrounded them, for though the men hunted on foot, they ran very fast.
For a time the people had an abundance of buffalo meat.
In the spring they moved their camp to low, swampy land, where they planted the corn they had received from the medicine stream.
It grew rapidly, and every grain they planted brought forth strong stalks bearing two to
four ears of corn.
The people planted corn every year after this.
One spring after planting corn, the Cheyenne went on a buffalo hunt.
\Vhen they had enough meat to last for a long time, they returned to their fields.
To their surprise, they found that the corn had been stolen by some neighboring tribe. Nothing but stalks remained-not even a kernel for seed.
Though the theft had occurred about a moon before, the Cheyenne trailed the enemy's footprints for several days.
They even fought with two or three tribes, but never succeeded in tracing the robbers or recovering the stolen crop.
It was a long time before the Cheyenne planted any more corn.
-Based on a story reported by George A. Dorsey at the turn of the century.
The loss of corn described here may symbolize how the Cheyenne abandoned planting for buffalo hunting in the late half of the eighteenth century.
The "wings" given the Plains tribes by the arrival of guns and horses at this time not only allowed them to move from being gatherers to being hunters
(the reverse of the more common cultural evolution) but opened up the possibility of a more elaborate-and transportable......material culture-hence the term, golden age of the Plains Indians .

"I've looked around, I've looked everywhere, I haven't seen one white supremacist." - Former GOP Congressman and current Fox News shill Sean Duffy employing a classic
Obstruct By Lightning Are we on indictment watch? Let’s get ahead of ourselves this fine Monday.
Each new detail in the evidence pile points to overt corruption and obstruction of justice by Trump and his lackeys, and his legal team can sense that the walls are (maybe this time for real?) closing in.
- As the Justice Department’s Special Counsel Jack Smith wraps up his investigation of disgraced former president Donald Trump’s (DFPDT’s) “mishandling” of classified White House documents, it looks like a new evidence bomb just dropped. According to a source close to DFPDT, a Mar-a-Lago employee drained the resort’s swimming pool last October and consequently flooded a room where computer servers containing surveillance-video logs were kept.
- It’s unclear if the room was flooded intentionally or accidentally, but we have an educated guess! And we’re not the only ones. This incident occurred as part of a series of events that federal prosecutors found suspicious. At least one witness there has been questioned by federal investigators about the flooded server room, which came roughly two months after the FBI retrieved hundreds of classified documents from Trump’s Florida residence.
- Federal prosecutors have been looking into efforts by Trump and his employees to obstruct the DOJ’s investigation after Trump received a subpoena to hand over any classified documents in his possession in May 2022, which he mostly did not, as we found out after the August FBI raid of Mar-A-Lago. At least 20 people—members of Trump’s inner circle as well as Mar-a-Lago staff—have been subpoenaed to testify in front of the federal grand jury.
Big legal consequences for Trump’s shameless crime streak could finally be on the horizon.
- In April, Trump’s legal team protested that the classified-documents theft should be investigated as an administrative, rather than a criminal, matter. In late May, two of Trump’s lawyers sent a letter to Attorney General Merrick Garland asking for a personal meeting to discuss what they characterized as “unfair treatment” of their client (lol) by Special Counsel Jack Smith. Lawyers asking for a meeting with DOJ officials in a federal case on behalf of their client is not unusual. Asking for a private audience with the attorney general is. On Monday, Trump’s cadre of lawyers made asked DOJ officials if the department would, pretty please, not charge Trump for stealing classified documents from the White House after leaving office.
- All of this is to say nothing of the myriad other investigations of Trump’s contemporaneous crimes. In the past week, the Fulton County, GA, district attorney has been zeroing-in on two firms hired by the Trump campaign to “study” the question of electoral fraud in the 2020 election. The DA’s office has asked the firms for both data and information about Georgia, but also for communications with Trump officials and a detailed accounting of the campaign’s activities in other states, as prosecutors aim to build a broader racketeering case. Earlier this year, federal prosecutors obtained evidence from one of the firms, Berkeley Research Group, that Trump’s White House Chief of Staff Mark Meadows had berated its employees for not giving him sufficient evidence to overturn the election results and “encouraged” them to find fraud that didn’t exist.
Be there, will be wild!

Under The Radar The United States Securities and Exchange Commission filed a complaint in federal court on Monday listing 13 charges against cryptocurrency-exchange company Binance and its CEO and founder Changpeng Zhao.
The SEC alleges that Zhao operated a “web of deception” and that Binance artificially inflated its trading numbers, diverted customer funds, failed to restrict U.S. customers from its platform, and lied to investors about its market-surveillance capabilities. Further, the claims allege that Binance and Zhao secretly controlled customer assets and allowed them to commingle and divert investor funds, which, in legal terms, is a big no-no. Binance is the world’s largest cryptocurrency exchange, and this lawsuit marks the second time this year that federal authorities have accused the company of evading laws
designed to protect investors in the United States.
What Else? Saudi Arabia announced it would make significant cuts to its oil output in July, compounding a broader OPEC deal to limit supply in order to inflate oil prices.
Cool! Love those guys! The IRS is readying its free online tax-filing pilot program for rollout as early as next year, so the major tax-prep corporations are arming themselves with a deep bench of lobbyists.
Cool! Love those guys! Someone bought a shitload of shares in Equitrans Midstream Corp—the company heavily involved in the long-delayed Mountain Valley Pipeline—days before the debt ceiling (which greenlit the pipeline) was announced, suggesting that the special someone in question did insider trading. An investigation by California Attorney General Rob Bonta found that the state of Florida transported asylum-seeking migrants from the Texas border by private jet to California’s capital city of Sacramento on Monday as yet another inhumane stunt performed on the Florida taxpayers’ dime, the second in four days.
Gov. Gavin Newsom (D-CA) did not mince words in excoriating Gov. Ron DeSantis (R-FL), calling him a “small, pathetic man,” (get his ass, Gavin) and raising the prospect of kidnapping charges. A Utah school district has banned the Bible in elementary and middle schools for “vulgarity and violence.”
Sorry kids, no Song of Songs for you, it’s too horny. Rep. Lauren Boebert (R-CO) claimed she intentionally skipped the debt-limit vote as a “silent protest” but a new video shows her running up the steps on her way to vote in a panic, then learning she had missed it. A private plane flying over Washington, DC, crashed in Northern Virginia on Sunday, killing all four passengers.
F-16 fighter jets were deployed to intercept the plane while it was still in the air, causing a sonic boom heard across the region, but were unsuccessful. Former Vice President Mike Pence has officially filed paperwork to launch his 2024 presidential campaign.
Someone tell Mother! Waning voter turnout in the blue stronghold of Philadelphia has the Democratic Party worrying about 2024.
Be Smarter The Kremlin’s Ministry of Defense reported that the Russian army thwarted a major Ukranian attack in Donetsk, releasing a video showing military vehicles under heavy fire. Moscow claims their forces killed 300 troops and destroyed 16 tanks, but that has yet to be independently verified
. Ukraine’s military spokesperson, however, said on Monday that the country had no information about a major attack on the key region. Ukrainian Deputy Defense Minister Hanna Maliar said in an interview on Monday that the country’s long-awaited counteroffensive is “taking place in several directions,”
furthering speculation that the campaign to recapture land held by Russian forces is already underway. The counteroffensive has lofty stakes: Kyiv needs to show its people and its Western allies that it can push back advances Russia has made over the winter and early spring.

2023.06.06 14:32 iyakonboats Fourth Element Tech Fins review
I've owned several types of fins and my go-to sets are the Apeks RK3 and RK3HD fins for either open water diving or technical dives and I've never had a single problem with frog kicking, modified flutter, modified frog, or backfinning(sp?), plenty of power and they allow me to make minute adjustments as need me. However, I was razzle dazzled by someone to try the Fourth Element Tech Fins and here is why they're going to stay dry unless I need to loan them to someone or I've lost both sets of RK3s.
The size I bought was the Large size because I'm a Size 9 foot, my wife also bought the same size as it fit her foot as well, both were in black, if that makes any difference. Things I like:
- Fourth Element uses natural rubber so its more "environmentally friendly"
- The fin foot pocket is rather small and way too stiff, my wife's fins gave her a cyst on the top of her foot and this was experienced by other divers too
- They're rather negatively buoyant and this wasn't helpful for me in open water with either a 3mm or 5mm wetsuit with either HP80s or Dual HP100s in tech
- The spring straps are insanely tight and my wife, and two other diving friends (Professionals in the SCUBA industry if that makes a difference) experienced the same thing with the feeling of pain while using them. The only option is to purchase the XL sized strap, but now you're already more money deep into a $200+ pair of fins and the instructor friend said those didn't work for him either so he went and made his own to work with the fin so it doesn't hurt while diving.
- Because of the above point these fins are a monumental PITA to take off and there is very little room for you to thread your hand through to put your fins on your wrist when climbing aboard a boat that doesn't have a christmas tree ladder
- These offered less maneuverability and power than my standard RK3 fins! You heard correct, all forms of finning were inferior to the RK3, brought all three pairs with me on a dive to test them out in open water, in a 3mm wetsuit, with a HP80 and the RK3 provided more propulsion and was significantly better at back finning compared to the Fourth Element fins. This was amplified when I switched to the RK3HD fins, I was able to do more with less effort.
- The little carrying strap, which is nothing more than a bolt snap with a lanyard, isn't all that useful, in fact, I don't even know where it is now, but its a claim they boast about.
In conclusion, I blame myself for being razzle dazzled by some claim that Fourth Element "improved" on something which is already tried and true with various manufacturers. The SP Jet Fins, Hollis F1, Apeks RK3, and the various others who have been out for a long time are generally less expensive, have better, and proven, characteristics underwater with the various finning techniques to provide ample propulsion. Like anything with SCUBA gear, your mileage may vary and you may have a different experience with these fins; however, I've met a lot of people in South Florida who bought them and after a few boat dives I don't see them using the fins afterwards, and a quick chat reveals the same points I came to, which is similar to their masks, another review I'll post soon.
