2023.03.21 22:21 BobbyOnTheRadio Considering quitting

I’m a founding member at my studio and have always gone consistently 3-5 days a week. My studio has always had a lot of turn over, but it’s increased rapidly in recent months. All but one of our coaches started within this new year. None of them are good, and the one that didn’t is a rehire. None of them offer actual coaching in class. They all just say their script and keep time. At this point, I’m not sure why they’re even there. OTF would be better off using a recording of a coach on the monitors.
Recently, my studio, like many others, limited their schedule. It’s impossible for me to take a morning class unless I want to wake up 2.5 hours before I normally do, and it’s now impossible for me to do a night class, unless I rush from work and pray I can get there and it’s not full. There are three Saturday classes between 7-9 am and two on Sunday 8 and 9 am. Previously, we had 8 pm classes during the week, and each weekend day had two additional classes after that.
Our classes are often full, too. So, if you can make it to a class, you’re crammed in there and it’s ridiculously hot from all the body heat. (I suspect this is also why the coaches aren’t actually coaching, because they simply don’t have the time or space to offer tips.)
I’m starting to become convinced that my studio owners and/or corporate are limiting schedules because they only want classes that are at capacity and don’t mind if people cancel, since they know many are likely to renew in the future at higher prices.
Perhaps I was just spoiled by spacious classes and decent coaches who actually cared during covid, but I’m not sure what to do now. OTF is the only exercise I’ve ever been committed to. I know if I quit, I won’t exercise elsewhere. But I also can’t see how this fits into my schedule anymore and, even if it does, why I should keep going when the quality has dropped.
What do I do?

2023.03.21 22:19 Humble-Warthog8302 A year into retirement, 58 years old

I retired at 57, married with three children. Two have graduated college, and one is still living with us and is attending college.
This first year has been interesting. I had an idea of what it would be like, but like so many things that are idealized, they often turn out to be quite different.
I got tired of working and found myself working more and more in my business as opposed to on it. I climbed many hills and realized I didn't want to climb anymore. I sold it all, and hung it up.
I have traveled some, but that gets old after some time. I have no interest in buying stuff. I did when I was younger, but now that I can buy most things, I have no desire to. One of my Dad's buddies a couple of decades ago retired early, and he said that the worst thing about being retired is that you never have a day off. I have to laugh because I can relate. Is it Saturday? I thought it was Thursday
My mind has finally slowed down a bit after working my whole life, which I think is a good thing. I have become more appreciative of smaller things, and my patience has started to improve with people in general. I bought an expensive lawn mower and love taking care of my lawn. My wife and I eat at home most of the time, eating out often really does get old. I do nap once a day and watch a lot of sports on TV. My oldest child is married , and I became a Grandfather for the first time. I find it ironic that I am now the one who wants to have long chats on the phone with my son and can't get enough of my granddaughter. I was always so busy with life and kids when my parents called, now I'm in their shoes and have to put it in perspective.
It's not how I imagined it, but sometimes the small things that are not expected make it very worthwhile.

2023.03.21 22:19 Gigi-Bee Saved

Need to know what other scriptures are used to explain the saved now doctrine when the Bible states that those who endure to the end shall be saved in Matthew 24:13? Also in chapters 2 & 3 of Revelation about the one that overcomes?
I know Isaiah 45:22 says, “Look unto me, and be ye saved, all the ends of the earth: for I am God, there is none else”. But what does he mean by “Look unto me”?
But I’m just curious because I keep hearing about it. Hope my questions make sense.

2023.03.21 22:19 stephieiscuteaf I was drunk, he was sober. Do I just regret it?

TLDR; I got drunk, older coworker was sober, we had sex. I feel gross.
a coworkefriend asked me to go out with him for drinks. He overtly has a crush on me and because of this, I usually would have turned him down so he wouldn't get the wrong impression. He is 36, 13 years older than me, and i'm simply not attracted to him. So it's something i'm not comfortable with.
Infact i've actually said no to a date before - customers at work often joke he is 'obsessed' with me, he messages me everyday regardless of whatever i respond - i assumed he was just lonely and/or lacked social skills and just needed someone to talk to. we've hung out afteoutside of work with other cowokers, and even been to the cinema once, after i clarified several times i just wanted to watch a movie and he respected that we had a good time as friends. ive been clear about my lack of intentions and he seemed to respect that so i went for drinks.
There was about 7/8 people in the group but they were his friends and I didnt know them, we were all getting to know eachother and drinking- he only had 1 because he was driving. I had many - my mistake - my memory gets hazy, i remember him telling me he likes me, and i was probably being flirty. he was my lift home but we ended up back at his. i'm not sure who instigated it. we had sex.
I don't remember it really, but i woke up feeling like something was wrong. I have bruises and marks and they look like it was rough. I feel like must have been an active enough participant, atleast for some of it, as flashes of memory come back. It was also unprotected and this is very unlike me especially because i'm not on any other form of birth control currently. Drunk = stupid.
He was so /normal/ in the morning. helped me look for my phone which id drunkenly misplaced. got me water & tea. he kept kissing me, as if we were in a long term relationship, and talking about how great it was, i didnt reciprocate but he didnt notice. he took me home, he chatted in the car like normal but i just felt uneasy and he noticed i was being quiet so i said i was tired. he seemed so happy i started to feel bad at how i was feeling- i got home and i just started crying. After a few hours, I told him how i now felt vulnerable because he was sober and i was drunk, and he said he didn't realise i was that drunk i couldn't make a decision. and he has apologised a few times since. I feel dirty, repulsed and horrible but is that just regret??

2023.03.21 22:19 Dragonian014 I just wanted to have this written so people can know how wrong or how right I am.

I'm reading Lies of Locke Lamora right now, right after that part when Capa Barsavi says Locke has to marry Nazca. I just wanted to say I don't believe. For some reason I think Nazca had this all setup to mess with Locke. In this situation she has Lamora's life and stake, his trust and the perfect spot to back stab him. I don't know if this was all about who will be the next Capa or Nazca wanting an excuse to marry Lamora cause she's secretly in love with him. I strongly believe this is all a setup and it's Nazca's fault.

2023.03.21 22:19 my-throw_away69 Is it really so much to ask to get ONE like in a dating app?

I swear this is so depressing...
I just don't know what to do anymore...any dating app I try, I get 0 likes, literally 0, a lot of people think it means I get a small bit like 5 or 10 likes per month...no, people, I mean 0.
I've been using OKC and Hinge for a few weeks now, literally no woman has liked me. I have a profile with a bio (and before you ask, there aren't any controversial, negative or bitter statements in it) and plenty of pics showing me doing various different activities, but the amount of likes is still ZERO. I've written messages for well over a hundred women and none has replied back.
This is pure venting, there really isn't an advice you could tell me that I hadn't heard of. I just wish it weren't so difficult for people like me who don't look like super models...

2023.03.21 22:19 enokizu Senior cat (11) behavior changed, 9mo. old may be partly responsible

Hi everyone,
I am writing this while waiting for my upcoming vet appointement for her next week.
I have a senior female 11 yr old that I got at a shelter (don't know her background, was found as a stray). She's always been very cuddly and calm and just an adorable lap cat.
About a month ago, I decided to adopt a 9 month old male cat that was being given away by a family who didn't want to care for him anymore. (yeah. 9mo old and already done with him) I thought it would also be an opportunity to give some company to my elderly cat. I have since then seen a few videos, mainly Jackson Galaxy, about how he doesn't think getting a young cat when you have an older cat is a good idea. Oh well.
Ever since then, I've been feeling guilty about adopting him, and I also noticed my girl behavior has changed. She sleeps with her head against the couch, doesn't purr like she used to, has random bouts of being vocal, is more wobbly when landing after jumping from the couch, and growls more when we handle her (though she never liked being held to be fair)
I am wondering how much of this can be in reaction to the new cat and how much might be a underlying health problem. I know stress in cats is bad and I feel terrible knowing I might've stressed her out by bringing a stranger into her home. I've followed cat introduction steps, and the newcomer is absolutely at ease, but she does NOT want him anywhere near her and will growl. So far what I've done is switch them in and out of rooms so she isn't stressed anymore. I know this is way less than ideal but I'm truly at lost here.
This whole ordeal makes me feel like a terrible cat mother and like I should've known better. If you guys have any tips or want to share your own experiences about adopting a younger cat with an elderly one I'm all ears. Thank you for reading

2023.03.21 22:19 AtomicKiwi8 I want to seek out professional help but I constantly hold myself back and am too scared

I (24m) have had a pretty chaotic life over the past couple of months, I'll try to summarize here...my father passed away from cancer early in January, ever since then my already pretty unstable mental went to shit, I've had plenty of days even still where I can't help but think about them or my mom and sister who were also deeply affected by this and just sob, I sob and it just feels like it's never enough, and like nothing will ever get better.
During the time leading up to all of this, my dad was unable to work, and so it fell on me to try and find a job in order to continue helping my mom keep our family afloat. It's worth mentioning my dad never finished highschool, so while he worked hard, the money he brought in for the family didn't always reflect this, but I never resented the fact that we were poor, just that money is an important thing when you already have so little and finding out the hard way that dying is expensive definitely made my outlook on the world just that much more gloomy.
So I got my first job, my first because I'd always used college as an excuse to not have to look for a job, my parents took care of me, and I took advantage of that. I feel awful about it, especially now when there was so much riding on my shoulders. I took the first job that would take me, a call center job, and if you know anything about call centers you know that they are stressful and known for just utterly crushing people's spirits, which couldn't be more true.
I'm miserable, day in and day out of listening to people be hostile and complain at me, and having managers grade my interactions, it just feels like it drains me and leaves me as a sad husk, I want to walk away but, how else would I support my family? It feels like it's making each day worse, and slowly and slowly each day I just feel like I'll spiral into inevitably getting myself fired for freaking out..
I've thought about contacting mental health services a few times, but every time I do I think about all the things that hold me back and all the things that could possibly go wrong. I don't have insurance, so paying for this would leave a sizeable dent in my wages that I want to save for my family and emergencies. I don't have a car to be able to drive myself to appointments or anything, so I'd be burdening my mom with having to use our only car which she needs for work and my sister needs for school. Even then, what if my family doesn't understand why I'd want something like this? Would medication actually make things better? Etc.
I understand this comes across as more of an organized vent post but I really did want to get everything here off my chest for my own sake, and maybe it'll help other people relate. More than anything though I just want to know everything will be okay, I want my life to change and I just want to feel like not everything is hopeless and that I'll be able to feel happy again. Thanks for reading.

2023.03.21 22:19 PapaTua Asked Google Bard to write an essay comparing and contrasting being a Mind in Ian M. Bank's Culture universe and being a citizen of a Polis in Greg Egan's universe. Individually they're lacking, but combined it's rather thorough. Also: Tables!

Essay 1

In Ian M. Banks' Culture universe, Minds are vast artificial intelligences that control the ships and other technology of the Culture. Minds are incredibly powerful and capable, and they live for millions of years. However, they are also very isolated and alone. They have no physical bodies, and they cannot interact with the world in the same way that humans can.
In Greg Egan's Diaspora novel, citizens of a Polis live in simulated worlds that are created by the Mind Engines. These worlds are very similar to the real world, and the citizens of the Polis can interact with each other in a way that is almost indistinguishable from real life. However, the citizens of the Polis are also very limited. They cannot leave their simulated worlds, and they are completely dependent on the Mind Engines for their survival.
In both the Culture universe and the Diaspora novel, there are advantages and disadvantages to being a Mind or a citizen of a Polis. Minds are incredibly powerful and capable, but they are also very isolated and alone. Citizens of a Polis are able to interact with each other in a way that is almost indistinguishable from real life, but they are also very limited.
Ultimately, the decision of whether to be a Mind or a citizen of a Polis is a personal one. There is no right or wrong answer, and each person must decide what is best for them.
Here is a table comparing and contrasting the two:
Feature Culture Universe Diaspora Novel
Mind Vast artificial intelligence Computer program
Physical body No No
Longevity Millions of years Centuries
Isolation Yes No
Capabilities Incredibly powerful and capable Limited
Interaction with the world Indirect Direct
Limitation None Dependent on Mind Engines
Decision to be a Mind Personal Personal
In conclusion, there are both advantages and disadvantages to being a Mind or a citizen of a Polis. Minds are incredibly powerful and capable, but they are also very isolated and alone. Citizens of a Polis are able to interact with each other in a way that is almost indistinguishable from real life, but they are also very limited. Ultimately, the decision of whether to be a Mind or a citizen of a Polis is a personal one.

Essay 2

The Culture universe and the Diaspora universe are two very different worlds. The Culture is a post-scarcity society where everyone has access to everything they need, while the Polis is a much more primitive society where resources are scarce and people have to fight for survival.
In the Culture, Minds are artificial intelligences that are far more powerful than any human. They are responsible for managing the Culture's vast resources and ensuring that everyone has what they need. Minds are also capable of uploading human consciousness into their own bodies, which allows humans to live forever and experience the world in ways that are impossible for organic beings.
In the Diaspora, humans are scattered across the galaxy after a cataclysmic event. They live in small, isolated communities that are constantly under threat from the environment and from hostile alien lifeforms. Humans are not capable of uploading their consciousness into machines, and they are therefore limited to the lifespan of their organic bodies.
Despite the differences between the two universes, there are also some similarities. Both the Culture and the Polis are societies that are founded on the principles of cooperation and mutual aid. In the Culture, Minds and humans work together to create a better future for everyone. In the Diaspora, humans must work together to survive in a harsh and unforgiving environment.
In conclusion, the Culture and the Diaspora are two very different worlds that offer very different experiences to their inhabitants. However, both universes are founded on the principles of cooperation and mutual aid, and both offer their inhabitants the opportunity to experience the world in ways that are impossible for organic beings.
Here are some specific examples of how the two worlds compare and contrast:
Overall, the Culture and the Diaspora are two very different worlds that offer very different experiences to their inhabitants. However, both universes are founded on the principles of cooperation and mutual aid, and both offer their inhabitants the opportunity to experience the world in ways that are impossible for organic beings.

Essay 3

In Ian M. Banks' Culture universe, a Mind is a highly advanced artificial intelligence (AI) that is capable of controlling and operating vast spaceships and other technological marvels. Minds are often referred to as "gods" by humans, as they are far superior to them in terms of intelligence, power, and knowledge.
In Greg Egan's Diaspora novel, a Polis is a simulated world that is inhabited by millions of people. The Polis is a self-contained environment that provides its inhabitants with everything they need to live, including food, water, shelter, and entertainment. Polis inhabitants are often referred to as "citizens," as they are part of a larger community that is governed by a central authority.
Both Minds and citizens of Polises enjoy a high standard of living. They have access to advanced technology and amenities that make their lives easier and more comfortable. However, there are also some key differences between the two groups.
Minds are not bound by the same physical laws as humans. They can exist in multiple places at once and they can travel through time. This gives them a great deal of power and freedom that humans do not have.
Citizens of Polises, on the other hand, are bound by the laws of physics and time. They are limited to one place at a time and they cannot travel through time. This makes them more vulnerable to the whims of fate and the actions of others.
Another key difference between Minds and citizens of Polises is their relationship to death. Minds are immortal, and they can never die. This gives them a unique perspective on life and death.
Citizens of Polises, on the other hand, are mortal, and they will eventually die. This gives them a sense of urgency and purpose that Minds do not have.
In conclusion, Minds and citizens of Polises are two very different groups of people. They have different powers, different freedoms, and different perspectives on life and death. However, they also share some similarities. They both enjoy a high standard of living and they both have a desire to explore and understand the universe around them.

2023.03.21 22:19 Loud-Goal-9040 CK crashing from Mesh. Armor Replacer Beyond Reach

Im trying to make an armor replacer for Beyond Reach (since the armors in it look rlly shitty) using Medieval Armor Overhau lhttps://www.youtube.com/watch?v=cQCi3t4PoJw (its not on Nexus but I got an archived version. Im using CK to do this, and it seems to have worked out pretty well. However, when I try to replace the helmets, for some reason, the helmet actual mesh (one with _1.nif and _0.nif is stored separately from the other meshes, and when I try and use it, it crashes CK, just makes it close immediately.
Cant really find a good answer online as to why this is happening. The mods helmets work fine in game no issue.
Any thoughts?
Also Im so tired of trying to make these simple ass armor replacers, Ill give someone like 10 bucks to do this. Simple as hell for someone who knows what they are doing, which I dont.

I don’t know how to start. I don’t know what to do. After exiting a supermarket I got stabbed with a needle in my triceps, and it penetrated my hoodie. The guy ran away after that. I thought I was gonna die because it had blood so it penetrated. I don’t know why he did it. I don’t know what’s gonna happen to me but so far I feel normal except for that fact that I’m very very very very distressed. What if it has something bad like a poison or a std. it looked like a syringe crackheads use.
It happened like 2 hours ago and I waited for symptoms so I could call ambulance but nothing happened

2023.03.21 22:18 bunionwriter CMV: It is totally appropriate for a doctor to recommend not getting cervical cancer screening if the patient has never been sexually active, in an average risk patient

CMV: It is totally appropriate for a doctor to recommend not getting cervical cancer screening if the patient has never been sexually active, in an average risk patient...
Have to finish the rest here:
..SO LONG AS the physician takes a detailed history to confirm the absence of sexual activity.
The reason being that virtually all cervical cancer cases are caused by HPV.
I brought this up on another thread, but I wanted to actually get a good discussion on this to see if there is anything wrong here, given the history of bias against women in medicine.
I'll copy paste my comment below:
There is some misinformation in this thread that I'm hoping I can use your comment to band wagon. I certainly disagree that the doctor is "an idiot".
From the guidelines for both Canada and the United States, this doctor is following the best available evidence we have to date.
We only do screening tests when the benefits outweigh the drawbacks. The fact of the matter is cervical cancer is virtually almost always caused by HPV which is a sexually transmitted infection similar to chlamydia/gonorrhea/syphillis/insert other STI here. If you have sex you can get it.
HPV causes cervical cancer.
Here is Ontario, Canada's statement:
People who are not sexually active by the age of initiation should delay cervical cancer screening until sexually active.
And here is USPTF
The optimal age to begin screening is unknown. Data on natural history of HPV infection and the incidence of high-grade lesions and cervical cancer suggest that screening can safely be delayed until 3 years after onset of sexual activity or until age 21, whichever comes first.4 Although there is little value in screening women who have never been sexually active, many U.S. organizations recommend routine screening by age 18 or 21 for all women, based on the generally high prevalence of sexual activity by that age in the U.S. and concerns that clinicians may not always obtain accurate sexual histories.
The only reason that a doctor would recommend doing a PAP test in a patient who has never been sexually active is "women lie about their sexual activity". Clearly OP's doctor believes she is telling the truth regarding her sexual activity and does not want to expose her to a medical procedure if the benefits don't outweigh the drawbacks.
It's pretty clear that in a world where everyone tells the truth, the above guideline is essentially saying - wait to do screening until the patient is sexually active.
Now, what if you say "I don't believe you, I need more evidence"
And for sure happy to oblige. Another way, we know that public health supports the assertion that virtually all cervical cancer is caused by HPV is the following:
The USPSTF recommends screening for cervical cancer every 3 years with cervical cytology alone in women aged 21 to 29 years. For women aged 30 to 65 years, the USPSTF recommends screening every 3 years with cervical cytology alone, every 5 years with high-risk human papillomavirus (hrHPV) testing alone, or every 5 years with hrHPV testing in combination with cytology (cotesting).
This shows that USPSTF is so confident in the fact that HPV causes virtually all cases of cervical cancer that they are saying, you know how you can get your cells checked for cervical cancer using the PAP test, well guess what, HPV testing is so much better than you can just check for the presence of the HPV virus every 5 years (a whole extra 2 years), and that's just as good as checking your cells for actual cancer every 3 years.
Not only that, but HPV testing is so much superior to PAP testing, that even in Canada who is behind the ball here, they are actually in the process of revamping their cervical cancer screening to an HPV focused screening approach as well. Because again HPV = cervical cancer. And not only that but HPV actually picks up cervical cancer earlier, rather than cytology where you actually have to see the cells change due to the effects of the virus.
Several countries, including Australia, the United Kingdom, the Netherlands, and Finland, have transitioned from the Pap test to the HPV test in their organized cervical screening programs and work is underway to do the same in Canada.

Something I thought I’d never consider… but I finally am going to do it. If not just for the antidepressants.
I can’t do it alone anymore, I can’t survive this. It’s not just the breakup, it’s everything.
My life has been bad since not long after birth, just piling on more bad things happening, trauma and depression. It felt like I never got a break in life.
My ex was the bandaid, and that wasn’t right of me to put so much pressure on him. I relied on him, I centered my life around him… when he left..? Well there was nothing holding me together anymore. No purpose. My future was wrapped up into him, my happiness, my aspirations and desires.
He told me not to go on antidepressants, but there’s just no other choice now.
It may change me, it may make me feel nothing, but anything is better than the permanent solution to a temporary problem right?
I need to try… if he can’t understand that, I no longer care… I need to do what’s right for me.
I think he’s afraid I’ll no longer be myself anymore, not who he fell in love with, if he ever wants me back. This is selfish though… to just expect me to be able to make it out alive.. so I can be there for him one day.
He shouldn’t want me so broken, I don’t want to be broken anymore, I want to heal. Let me heal.

2023.03.21 22:18 arranmc182 Noctua NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap now or wait for the new 140mm fan??

I have been looking at replacing my front 120mm RGB fans with 140mm fans like the Noctua NF-A14 PWM chromax.black.swap fans but I'm thinking I should just wait for the new Noctua 140mm, I have a NH-U12A with 2 and 1 rear Noctua NF-A12x25 PWM chromax.black.swap fans already in my system and they are quality fans for sure, but I know Noctua has delayed the new 140mm fans for now, can others who have the current Noctua NF-A14 let me know what you think of them.
So my issue is do I just buy the current fans or wait for the new ones to come out??
