A month or so ago I noticed I had issues with routing to some IPs on the internet. I opened a ticket and never really heard back until today when they said they were going to replace the dish.
When I asked why, they said this:
“Outside of the issue you reported out team detected susceptibilities within your Starlink Dish as a result a Starlink with all components will be sent to the Shipping Address on file to ensure you are able to seamlessly get online. Please be sure to swap out all components.
Additionally, a one-month Service Credit has been applied for this inconvenience.”

2023.06.07 08:25 Tight-Context9426 Mycelium not growing on agar?

So I’d like to start by saying I’ve used agar a lot over the years and never had issues.
I was recently sent a sample on agar. After 2 weeks on the plate, the transferred sample hadn’t migrated across the plate at all - is this likely to do with contaminates on the dish? If I move it to new plates, am I going to take those contaminates with it?

2023.06.07 08:15 Evening_Fig4577 Questioning the health of my relationship

Hi. I’ve been with my partner for 7 years now, long distance for 3. We’re both male entering our late 20s and have been living together for about 3 years.
It’s been a crazy few years together with pretty big fights and all but also a lot of positives, especially at the beginning. Big career wins too. However recently I haven’t been able to stop thinking about the future and what it will be like.
He has developed a drinking problem (in my opinion) where he will drink a bottle of wine a night. I told him he should cut back because I’m worried about his health but I don’t know how to actually help him. Sometime he says the reason is his family, sometimes it’s me.
I definitely think we are codependent because I will literally do anything to help him out, like if he needs breakfast made daily despite me being busy, or a pack of cigarettes at an inconvenient time I will help him get them regardless if I’m busy or not. I like to feel useful but I think it’s to my detriment. I can tell I’ve lost the respect of many friends and family because I put up with some behavior that isn’t always considered “normal”. I have some die-hard friends that will always be on my side, and others that have straight up told me they don’t respect me because of this relationship.
Lately my partner has been asking me if I can see myself having kids with him and I want to say yes but I can’t imagine having kids right now. Plus he doesn’t know how to take care of himself… how will he take care of me? I do the dishes, pay the bills, drive him everywhere and clean up the place. I don’t feel like I get much help. The most I get is a guilt-inducing frown if I don’t do something he wants me to do, aka the silent treatment, which kills me inside.
The complex part here is that we have a business together, joint finances, a dog, and several years of connections and mutual friendships accumulated. It feels impossible to start over.
We started couples therapy and it’s been helping but I can’t help but just feel this odd feeling about how I’m a pushover and how there has to be a healthier relationship out there. I can’t tell if I’m the problem or if it’s him. I’ve had this issue where I am a pushover with my mom and brother as well. I’m not sure they even care about what’s best for me, but it just feels so exhausting to push for that. I’m working on the codependency but every day just feels sooooo difficult to get through. I’m starting to wonder what I’m working towards.
Anyways, sorry for the rant, any help would be greatly appreciated. I guess I just feel stuck and would love to hear what others think outside of my direct situation.

2023.06.07 08:07 throwawaydhayne I got to learn hiw much my dead dad hated my mom in a series of journals

Buckle up because this will be a long post.
My dad died last year from a heart attack. He was only 51. Its just me, my mom, and my siblings now. I can't emphasize enough how much I miss him and I'll be the first to say that I was incredibly lucky to have someone like him in my life. My dad had a small inheritance and co-ran a real estate business, so he could afford to work part time. However, when he was home he was constantly doing things like laundry, cooking meals, cleaning the house, grocery shopping, and handling the general labor around scheduling, chauffering, and maintaining our activities as a family. He planned and maintained everthing for us. He didn't even seem to have any hobbies outside of reading and writing (this will be important later).
My mom would sometimes help out in these areas, too, but she became less involved when she started getting more involved with her office job. My Dad always made time for us when we needed it and sometimes we didn't have to ask, he just knew.
My mom on the other hand was a very private person. She was not what most would call a people person, but my dad loved her a lot, and I believe she had other qualities that he admired which made up for it. I'm not going to lie, my mom and I did not and still don't have a good relationship with each other. We're both very stubborn, but my mom is also far more negative than me or my dad. My mom also gets stressed really easily, which is why I think she was okay with my dad eventually taking over everything (she's too scared to even drive a car, my dad drove her where she wanted or she used a taxi or uber). But it was hard to hear from her how tough her job and her life was when she was spending most of her non-working hours watching the news or scrolling on her phone while my dad cleaned the dishes and prepared for the following day.
Anyway after my dad died we got around to going through his stuff. Like I said he mostly owned books and journals that he wrote in, but I came across a journal that he had hidden in a drawer. I opened it and it was filled with dates and entries of times my mom belittled my dad or my dad had something negative to say about my mom. It wasn't just my mom, but other people that he worked with too. I was surprised there was nothing about me and my sisters in there, but there were tons of entries involving my mom. Some of them were really hurtful and things that I never thought my dad would even be capable of writing about her. My mom of course saw what I was reading and when she demanded to see what it was she was angry when she read what was written in it. Later on my mom found more journals like this one on his book shelves with more entires about her and others that we know. A part of me thinks he was using the journals to blow off steam, but I'm upset that I have to learn what he truly thought of my mom in this way. I also think he was stupid to even keep them around. He was so good at burying these emotions that he probably didn't even need journals to write in or he could have just used a computer instead.
Now my mom won't stop talking to anyone who will hear about it about how poorly her husband treated her before he died. She's treating the journal entries as if they were actual events that occurred in our lives when it's obviously a distortion of the facts. My relationship with her has gotten even more strained since he passed away. Especially now since me and my siblings all have to pitch in to take on the responsibilities of our dad since my mom seems incapable of doing things herself. Most of the time I really miss my dad but I spend more of that time, wishing I had never found that journal. If I could do it all over again, I might have tried to find them all and just burn them.

2023.06.07 08:05 richi-carmen Why should fowl feed processing maker lubricated?

Why should fowl feed processing maker lubricated?
Chicken feed handling equipment makers all know that throughout the operation of the feed machinery, there will certainly be equivalent rubbing in between the components touching each other, from damages to the parts to affecting the production of mechanical devices, hence causing the mechanical equipment to stop working and also causing significant economic losses to the business. Therefore, routine lubrication is usually needed to guarantee the regular procedure of the pet feed pellet making device.
When oiling feed machinery, fowl feed handling equipment manufacturers generally consist of a number of different lubrication states, which can be separated into border rubbing, completely dry rubbing and also liquid rubbing. Typically speaking, oiling the friction parts of tools can properly decrease friction, greatly decrease tools wear and also performance intake, boost devices operating efficiency, as well as extend equipment life. As one of the major ways to enhance devices efficiency, lubrication modern technology has ended up being a common problem in related areas.
Chicken feed handling machine makers require to take note that in the process of lubrication, they must not be thoughtlessly executed, but need to formulate a lubrication management plan in accordance with the development of the business according to the real production situation of the poultry feed equipment itself, so regarding make greater efforts for the typical operation of the enterprise equipment. contribution.Why should the chicken feed pellet making maker be kept oiled?
Generally, the importance of lubricating treatment has been highlighted again and again, mostly due to the fact that appropriate lubricating treatment can substantially decrease the wear degree of feed pellet mills and make certain smooth manufacturing job. As we all recognize, any kind of poultry feed processing equipment will inevitably have troubles such as reduced flexibility, reduced operating efficiency as well as damage after long-term usage. At this time, the maintenance of equipment certainly squanders labor and also material resource expenses, and also creates ventures to endure better economic losses.
Chicken feed processing makers are no exemption. In the long-lasting usage procedure, if there is a absence of corresponding lubrication, the friction stamina in between the get in touch with parts will unavoidably boost, resulting in damage to the parts and also impacting the typical use of the entire fowl feed handling equipment. Therefore, having a good lubrication program in place before a issue takes place in the equipment will certainly be a preventive measure to extend the life of the devices.

The Followings Are More Frequently Asked Questions concerning Chicken Feed Pellet Machines :.
With the opening of 2022, the sales of Richi Equipment's fowl feed handling equipments have actually been increasing progressively. However, for the small troubles caused by the wrong procedure of clients, a brief recap is as complies with:.
1. What should I do if the poultry feed handling equipment can not be pushed?
Encountering this problem, numerous close friends will absolutely assume that this scenario will also take place when their feed pellet devices are generating feed pellets. This is actually a headache, not just wasting raw materials, but likewise considerably raising the trouble of screening feed pellets. Today, a technologist will certainly go over the factors for this sensation with you.
Lately, several customers reported that the fowl pellet maker created a great deal of powder, as well as the pellets were not tight enough, the feed pellets were always soft, so what happened?
In general, is this considered a feed component or formula? Relatively slow-moving production modifications, or changes to dishes, can promptly accomplish the wanted results. Omitting feed ingredients and also solutions, we will certainly evaluate the maker setup for internal issues.
( 1) The mold and mildew wear is too large, the filter holes are flattened, and also the expansion is significant, resulting in a decline in pellet stress, impacting the pellet forming price, and causing excessive powder.
( 2) The wetness web content of the raw material is too low or expensive. If the water content is too expensive, the powder will not be excessive, yet the pellet hardness is reduced, and also the pellets of the fowl feed pelleting device are easy to loosen up. The raw product has a low water content and is tough to squeeze out, leading to way too much powder.
( 3) The poultry feed pellet maker is aging, the power is insufficient, the motor can not give enough rate, as well as the matching stress is generated to press right into pellets.
( 4) The top quality of the ring die is bad, or the compression is not too high.
( 5) Think about making use of grease.
( 6) The feeding scrape is not set up correctly, and the feeding can not go into the pressing chamber.
( 7) The placement of the cutter is wrong, and the discharge material is squeezed right into powder ( yet if the hole is commonly blocked, it is unlikely).
( 8) Moisture control describes the comprehensive control of various aspects according to different situations in the entire production process, so that the final water material of the item can get to the anticipated target of the manufacturer. The main variables impacting the final water material of feed products are: water material of feed components, water changes in the squashing stage, fluid addition in the mixing phase, steam water material, conditioning degree, die hole size as well as thickness, cooler air quantity and air-drying time, product packaging.

The influence of high quality administration and also different weather and environmental aspects ( usually, the dampness web content of pellet feed after handling will not go beyond 12.5; but in the north, pellet feed will not go beyond 13.5. If handling in summertime, due to the high ambient temperature, the optimum dampness content of ended up pellets shall not exceed 13.5. 12.5, otherwise it is very easy to mold and mildew and wear away).
Feed pellets rate by more and more farmers as well as herdsmen with their distinct advantages. It is simple to shop as well as transport, and it is also helpful for pet food digestion. Compared with ordinary feed, it is rich in nutrients and also has a good market possibility. Actually, the manufacturing procedure of feed pellets is a process of distribution ratio, as long as you master the proportion. Certainly, when the pellets begin, obviously inexperienced, but do it two times. The basic poultry feed handling machine maker's handbook will discuss the distribution ratio of feed pellets, which can be described.
2. No pellets.
( 1 ) Reason.
The new poultry feed handling maker was not run-in with lubricating oil or was not run-in sufficient;.
The moisture web content of feed raw materials is expensive;.
( 2 ) Option.
Remove the raw materials in the existing fowl feed processing machine, as well as add oil to the raw products to run in the brand-new maker, and the proportion of each time is: 1:3.
Add some dry active ingredients to readjust the wetness.
3. The electric motor quits all of a sudden.
( 1 ) Reason.
The voltage is as well low.
The pressure between journalism roller as well as the die plate is expensive.
( 2 ) Option.
Usage 4mm cable to avoid tripping throughout use.
Loosen up some screws.

9 year old Calico, Spayed, Canada.
Other relevant info:
She has been on car trips for a little over a couple hours every time. This will by far be her longest trip. When we travelled with her more frequently she was a little less mad about it, but it hasn’t been an option the last few years.
Things I’m looking into specifically: - a car carrier that will give her ample space, visibility, safety. Ideally really easy to clean. - ways to help her stay calm - feeding tips on the road
We love our kitty and just want all of us to get there safe!

2023.06.07 07:43 nsideus Trip Report - 19 days in Japan with an infant and a toddler

We are a family of 4 with two young kids, a toddler who’s nearing 3 years old and an infant who is 9 months old. We visited Japan in May of 2023 for 18 nights. We stayed in Tokyo, Kyoto, and Osaka, and took day trips to Nara and Kobe.
Some people might call us crazy for taking an international trip with two small children. But my wife and I, who were avid travelers before we had kids, hadn’t been out of the country since 2019 due to 1) having kids and 2) Covid. We were itching for a trip, so we took the chance. Were there some crazy times? Of course. Was it worth it? Definitely.
I did a lot of research and prep before the trip, but there are always surprises that come up when you have kids. I’ll try to share some of the lessons I learned on the trip.
This was our first time on an airplane with the kids. I was a bit worried beforehand and in retrospect the flights were the worst parts of the trip. The main advice I’d give is do as much as you can to make your flight more tolerable, which no doubt means spending more money on tickets and gear. But it’s worth it.
I considered a few different airlines for this trip: ZipAir, Singapore, ANA, and Japan Airlines. JAL was too expensive. ZipAir was interesting because they provide car seats, you don’t have to take your own. We didn’t rent a car in Japan so we didn’t need our own car seats. I was just worried about racking up extra fees on ZipAir. Singapore and ANA were similar, they both provide bassinets and the price was similar. I ended up going with ANA for two reasons: 1) I had flown ANA on a previous trip and been happy with them and 2) they fly to Haneda instead of Narita, which saves you time getting from the airport to your hotel.
We opted for 3 seats and a bassinet. My infant is big for her age so she barely fit in the bassinet (she’s 21 pounds). But we were glad to have it. I had to call in to ANA customer service which had an hour+ wait time to get the bassinet, but other than that it was no trouble.
Which leads me into probably the most important part of flying with kids on a lengthy flight: get your kids to sleep on the plane. The more they sleep the less likely you are to run into a tantrum or meltdown.
To encourage sleeping we did a few things: 1) Take an overnight flight 2) Get a bassinet for our infant 3) Get a JetKids bed box for our toddler. Our ANA flight from LAX left at 5pm, which allowed time for the dinner service to show up before we put our kids to bed. They set the bassinet up right after you get to cruising altitude, so it’s there the majority of the flight. Our infant rejected it at first but eventually fell asleep.
As far as our toddler sleeping, the JetKids worked well. There was a bit of trouble with it staying in place since we had bulkhead seats, but overall I was happy with it as a bed. I absolutely hate the JetKids a piece of luggage though, it’s not easy to lug around and holds nearly nothing. But it helped our toddler stay asleep most of the flight. You don’t necessarily need a JetKids though, other airline seat bed solutions may work just as well. Just bring something that will help your toddler sleep. If we had to do it again, I think I’d prefer having car seats over both the bassinet and JetKids. That’s probably what we’ll do on the next trip.
There were a few unexpected problems we ran into on the flights. On the first flight, our infant got motion sickness and spit up multiple times. She ruined one of my shirts and my wife’s pants. Not to mention my wife got motion sickness as well so I had to do most of the heavy lifting with the kids alone. It was a sleepless and messy flight.
On our flight home, there was a mechanical issue with the plane. They said we were losing oil. So on a Tokyo to Los Angeles flight we somehow ended up landing In Anchorage, Alaska. It goes without saying this was horrible and the flight home from Anchorage on Alaska Airlines was horrible too. But that’s not really relevant to flying to/from Japan so I’ll leave the details out. We won’t be flying with ANA ever again.
To reiterate, do what you can to make your flight easier. Get the non-stop flight. Get the extra seat. This isn’t the area to be frugal.
So you survived the flight. How do you get your kids around once you’ve landed? We have two kids so we need a twin stroller right? Wrong. Taking a twin stroller to Japan is a huge mistake, don’t do it.
Most guides will tell you to use a carrier, and if you only have one small infant then that’s likely the way to go. But with two kids we used a travel stroller and carrier combo. At first I expected to only use the carrier and carry the stroller around until we needed it, but I quickly realized that carrying the stroller around all day is a huge pain. We have the Cybex Libelle which is small at 13lbs, but 13lbs is still heavy enough that you don’t want to carry it all day.
So our stroller remained deployed basically all the time. My infant sat in the stroller most of the day, until it was my toddler’s nap time. Then the infant went in the carrier and toddler in the stroller to sleep. It worked well for us.
How did we keep the stroller deployed the whole time? Elevators. Lots of elevators. And occasionally carrying it up and down stairs. The availability of elevators depends on where you are. Of the cities we visited, I’d say Tokyo is the best and Kyoto is the worst for elevator availability.
The wide majority of metro and train stations are going to have elevators. It can be hard to find the right entrance to use to find an elevator, but there is always signage and almost always a map. You may need to walk an extra 5 minutes, or wait in line, or get lost, so always give yourself extra time when catching a train if you are using your stroller. We spent a LOT of time looking for elevators on this trip.
We only found two stations our whole trip that had no elevator at all, one was the JR Kobe station and the other was a JR station in Tokyo (I forget which one). When this happened, I picked up the stroller and carried it with our infant in it on the stairs. If our toddler was in it I made her get up and walk, then carried the stroller.
The other problem at metro / train stations with a stroller is the gap between the train and the platform. There’s always either a gap or the train and platform are at different elevations. You don’t have a lot of time to get on / off the train so this was a constant source of anxiety. Once our stroller wheel got stuck in between the train and the platform. It took some effort to pop it out. Another time my toddler stepped in the gap, but luckily I was holding her hand and stopped her from falling in. Always be mindful of the gap when you have kids. It’s probably one of the least safe situations you’ll constantly run into in Japan.
Malls and shopping centers almost always have elevators. You may need to wait a while to get one though. In the malls with 10+ floors, you might need to wait 5 minutes for an elevator. Sometimes they have “priority” elevators for the handicapped and strollers but often times perfectly abled people rudely take up all the space in those elevators.
We thought we would have trouble taking our stroller into restaurants but it was actually much less trouble than expected. There was only one restaurant that flat out turned us away, Sushi Tokyo Ten in Roppongi. Other establishments will usually move a chair so you can put your stroller at the table or counter where the chair was.
So overall the stroller was annoying to use but I don’t think we could have done the trip without it. It was a necessary evil with two young kids.
We used the Shinkansen to get between cities. We had two trips, Tokyo to Kyoto and Osaka to Tokyo. We did not bother with the JR Pass, it wasn’t worth it. Mostly because our trips were 8 days apart so we would’ve needed the 14 days pass which wasn’t worth it for two Shinkansen trips.
One thing that caught us off-guard about the Shinkansen is how quickly it leaves a station when it makes a stop. We were expecting to have some time to get on when the train arrived, but it’s basically the same as a Metro stop. You have to get on right away. We made the mistake of buying a reserved seat for a train leaving in less than 15 minutes, without knowing where the elevator was. So we scrambled to get to where we needed to go on the platform and were the last ones on the train. We jumped on the train at the last second, we wanted to get to our specific car from the platform but we weren’t going to make it. It’s a miracle we didn’t lose a piece of luggage or a kid on the way. On the second trip I reserved a seat on a train that was 40 minutes out.
As far as seating we only needed to buy two seats. We would have put our toddler on our lap if needed, but we didn’t need to. Basically, one side of the train has 2 seats and the other 3. If you find a row that has the window seat open on the 3 seat side, then it is very unlikely anyone will sit in the aisle seat if you reserve the window and middle seat. We basically got a free seat for our toddler this way on both trips.
—Baby supplies—
We had more trouble than expected finding baby supplies. A lot of guides online tell you to go to drugstores, and maybe we were going to the wrong drugstores but that wasn’t working out for us. We were distraught until we by chance came across Babies R Us. Yes, the Babies R Us that went out of business in the USA. We happened to be browsing the malls in Odaiba when we came across this gem. It’s a treasure trove of western style baby food and supplies.
Our infant is in the “purée” food stage and we didn’t find any in drugstores. Most of the baby food is juice or rice porridge. Babies R Us has aisles worth of puréed food. It has diapers, wet wipes, formula, nose cleaners, and basically anything else you’d ever want for your baby. We stocked up on everything when we found this place. There are several locations but we went to the Odaiba location in Tokyo and the Harborland location in Kobe.
Another smaller store we found in the mall below Tokyo Skytree is Dadway. They don’t have as much as Babies R Us but we did pick up some purée here.
The other place we picked up diapers and a few others things is Don Quijote, which has locations all over the place. Their baby food collection is basically as limited as drugstores, but it’s fine in a pinch.
I’ve spoken a lot about logistics, but I had one primary reason for going to Japan: to eat tasty food. I had been to Japan once before I had kids and fell in love with the food.
Most guides will tell you families should go to family restaurants. Nope. Not happening. We did not go to a single Saizeriya or Bikkuri Donkey. And I definitely did not go through all of this trouble to eat at Denny’s. We went to a total of ZERO family restaurants.
I’m here to tell you there are plenty of good restaurants you can go to with kids. Even with a baby. Even with a baby and a toddler.
I’ll tell you my main approach to finding restaurants that will allow kids to dine with you. Your main tools are: Tablelog, Google Maps, and the individual restaurant websites. Tablelog is a great tool and their “with children” section on the restaurant info page is very accurate. If a restaurant is listed as “Babies are welcome” or “Baby Strollers accepted”, then you can very likely eat there with a baby. If a place does not have such a listing, it isn’t necessarily a no, it’s a maybe. That’s when you need to search Google Maps reviews for “kids”, “children”, “family” to see if anyone mentions the restaurant’s stance on such things. If you can’t find anything on Google Maps, go to the restaurant’s website. If they have an online reservation system, it is likely to list their stance on kids on the reservation page.
I did a lot of research beforehand and pinned all the relevant restaurants on Google Maps. That way, no matter where I was, I could find some good kid tolerant restaurants. I say “kid-tolerant” instead of “kid friendly” because I consider “kid-tolerant” to mean that they let kids in the restaurant, while “kid-friendly” means they have a kid’s menu, high chairs, etc.
We were able to eat at a wide variety of restaurants, from overpriced Michelin starred places to budget Omakase places. There are a lot of restaurants in Japan. If a restaurant doesn’t let you in because you have kids, it’s fine because there’s another similar one that will.
This is a list of good restaurants we ate at with our infant and toddler. These are just the places we made it to, there were plenty more I had on my list we didn’t make it to:
Gion Maruyama, Gion, Kyoto
Sushi Wakon, Four Seasons, Kyoto
The Oak Door, Grand Hyatt, Tokyo
Kobe Plaisir, Kobe
Roku Roku, Grand Hyatt, Tokyo
Daiwa Sushi, Toyosu Market, Tokyo
Inshotei, Ueno Park, Tokyo
Sushidan, Eat Play Works, Tokyo
Nishiya, Shinsaibashi, Osaka
Tonkatsu Wako, JR Isetan, Kyoto
Soju Dining, Tokyo Midtown, Tokyo
Imakatsu, Roppongi, Tokyo
Mizuno, Dotonbori, Osaka
Rokurinsha, Tokyo Station, Tokyo
Tsumigi, Tsukiji, Tokyo
Lots of different food stalls in Tsukiji Market, Tokyo
Other times we ate at conveyor belt sushi places, department store basements, or ramen places. The basements are a good place to get something for everyone. My toddler ate a lot of gyoza and noodles on this trip, she didn’t take a liking to much else. But Ichiran and Ippudo were right down her alley.
Tsukiji market was our go to breakfast place when we stayed in Tokyo. There’s plenty of different choices there and it opens early enough for jet-lagged families.
Overall I had a great time eating. If my toddler is eating she’s usually not having a tantrum, and we tried as best as possible to put our infant to sleep before we went to any higher end restaurants. There were some awkward tantrum moments but for the most part it was fine.
—City by City Report—
We had two different stays in Tokyo, the first after landing in Japan and the second right before departing Japan. We stayed a total of 10 nights in Tokyo, but we wish we had even more.
We could have come to Tokyo alone the whole trip and been perfectly content. It has the best food, the most kid friendly facilities, and there’s plenty to see and do.
Here’s a few choice things we did with the kids:
DisneySea: My toddler loved this one. We’ve been to Disneyland in SoCal but this is completely different. Even I was excited since it’s been a long while since I’ve been to an unexplored Disney park. A lot of people will say DisneySea is for older kids but there were plenty of rides my toddler could get on. It’s a great place for toddlers. A must visit with kids.
Ueno park: We spent a whole day in Ueno Park. There’s a great zoo, a fun Natural History Museum, and good restaurants. We picked up bento boxes from Inshotei and ate them at a picnic table in the zoo. I think this park is also a must do with kids.
One of the city views: you have a few choices here but we went to Tokyo Skytree and Shibuya Sky. Shibuya sky is a little less kid friendly, because they don’t allow strollers on the roof and they have some weird rules about holding your baby on the roof. I think they’re scared of a wind gust pulling your baby off the roof? I like the mall at Tokyo Skytree, and there’s a Rokurinsha there too (very good dipping ramen).
Small Worlds: This is a miniature museum on one of the man-made islands in the bay. It’s a little out of the way, but we made a day out of Toyosu Market, Small Worlds, and Odaiba. My toddler liked this one, the exhibits are interactive and fun to look at. It was better than expected.
Other than that we did a lot of eating and shopping in Tokyo for us adults.
Kyoto was probably our least favorite city to do with kids. In general it’s just hard to get around. There’s a lot of stroller unfriendly places. Streets without sidewalks. Rough cobblestone-like roads. Temples are not stroller friendly. Hills everywhere. Good luck getting to the top of the monkey park with a stroller. It’s definitely a trend in this city.
Maybe if you have older kids it’s fine. But if you have younger than elementary school kids it’s probably skippable. There’s not that many kid friendly activities here either. Temples aren’t interesting for kids. The best kid activity here is probably the Arashiyama Monkey Park. My toddler got a real kick out of feeding the monkeys. Just be aware there is a significant hike to get to the top of the hill where the monkeys are. My toddler is a pretty good walker, she made it all the way without crying or complaining. But I saw some other kids that didn’t fare as well.
The other thing you might try near the monkey park is the Arashiyama bamboo forest. I think it’s one of the most overrated sights in Japan though. It’s just mobbed with tourists all day. It’s not enjoyable with the crowds. I’ve been here twice and I’ve been disappointed both times.
I doubt we will be back to Kyoto any time soon.
Osaka was nice. It was a bit refreshing to have many of the Tokyo conveniences again. Elevators everywhere, well paved and flat roads, and plenty of baby rooms.
Osaka is a good base for taking nearby day trips as well. We went to both Kobe and Nara without needing to take the Shinkansen.
The best kid experience in Osaka is the Kaiyukan aquarium. It’s big. The central tank with the whale sharks is impressive. They have lots of different animals from all over the world. It’s bigger and better than any aquarium we have in California.
The one thing I wasn’t prepared for was the lines. You need to pre-book your timed entry tickets online. We didn’t, and ended up getting tickets that were for entry two hours later. And we were there right when they opened. If I go to the aquarium at opening time on a weekday where we are from we can walk right in. Lesson learned.
We stayed in Shinsaibashi and it’s a very walkable area. There’s a covered shopping street that goes all the way down to Dotonbori. Namba is walkable from there. And America-mura is between Shinsaibashi and Dotonbori.
The Daimaru mall in Shinsaibashi is good for kids. There’s a Bornelund in there with a small indoor playground, a Pokémon Center, and good food.
I liked Osaka overall. The only thing I thought was a let down was okonomiyaki.
Nara was worth the trip. It’s about 45 minutes from Namba on the train, so not too out of the way.
There’s deer all over. Deer that bow to you. In the park, on the sidewalk, in the street. It’s a unique experience you should see at least once.
The deer are rather aggressive when you have food for them. It’s not a place where you want your kids feeding the deer. As soon as you buy the food from the street vendor, they mob you. They try to snatch the food out of your hand. Make sure you watch someone else do it first before deciding to do it yourself. If I let my toddler do it she probably would have been terrified.
The other must see in Nara is Todai-ji. It’s impressive. The giant Buddha is something. This was probably the best temple we saw on this trip, it’s visually stunning. More than anything we saw in Kyoto. I did have to carry the stroller up and down some steps, but there’s not too many.
Kobe was great. It exceeded my expectations. The trip from Osaka is easy. We spent a full day there.
We started our one day in Kobe at the Nunobiki Herb Gardens. I wasn’t expecting too much but this place is really nice. It’s big, with lots of different gardens and exhibits to see. There’s great views as well. We took lots of pictures.
There’s a few different places to eat and drink in the gardens as well. We had some sparkling rose at “The Veranda” which had a great view of Kobe. We didn’t eat because we had a lunch reservation down the hill.
There’s a few things to watch out for. This place gets busy, so get there early. There’s no reservations, you just go early and wait in line. When we left at midday the line was massive, so get there when they open.
The herb garden only takes up the top half the hill. At first I thought it extended to the bottom of the hill, but the bottom half of the hill is actually a hiking trail without gardens. So I bought a one way gondola ticket to the top expecting to walk down all the way, but after I realized the garden ended at the middle I bought another ticket to go down (instead of getting the round trip ticket like I should have).
After the gardens we went to eat Kobe beef. Kobe Plaisir was the restaurant I chose, which was both high end and had a kids menu. The beef was great and everyone had a good time.
Afterwards we went to Harborland. It’s a nice area on the harbor that has a big boat you can go out on, and a couple of shopping malls. The Anpanman museum is here too but by the time we got there tickets were sold out for the day. This is also where you can find a Babies R Us.
Our Kobe day was one of the best days of our trip. I’d suggest a day trip here for anyone.
It’s hard to travel with kids this age. No doubt. Everything will take more time and be more expensive than when you used to travel alone. But I do not regret taking this trip at all. As a matter of fact I want to go back right now. My wife loved the trip, and my toddler might even remember it when she grows up. She still talks about feeding the monkeys and how dad ate a “real fish” (A Japanese sweetfish they grilled in front of us at Gion Maruyama). Japan is a great place for a first family trip.

2023.06.07 07:42 B0590 Here’s why this sub isn’t “ruthless”…

Keep in mind this is the same girl(s) who
• openly uses disrespectful words, • repeatedly drags her ex(s) and their families,
• gets absolutely shitfaced WHILE OPENLY ON MEDICATION (which’s like the worst biggest no no & is HIGHLY spoken about by medical professionals who prescribe said medications),
• overly drinks (cause it’s not just once in a while shitfaced it’s multiple days a week),
• emotionally and financially abuses whatever guy she’s sleeping with this week (currently Jacob) and holds it over their heads as leverage,
• disrespects her boyfriend’s/their families (both during dating and post dating) by exploiting her body across the internet
• has a history of being known for being in sexual relationships with multiple partners within a small time frame,
• bullies her “friends” looks and thinks they all only like her to get clout (& allows them so she can get the victim angle when she does bully them)
• exploits a child,
• doesn’t care about the health and wellbeing of the child’s mother,
• treats her animal(s) terribly (because what 3 month old puppy doesn’t love being crated 15 out of 24 hours a day…)
• refuses to acknowledge that her following (“fans”) bully, stalk, harass and more any and all of her ex friends/boyfriends/associations. (Literally she smiles at you, expect your page, lives and comments to be bombarded with her following until eternity)
• doesn’t even make an attempt to minimize the damage and victimization of those former whatever’s (yeah you can’t control who posts what but let’s be real a simple “guys please stop posting hate/death threats/etc on their pages & lives” would go a LONG way.
just to name a few things
….. stop with the “I’m not a fan but”.
No. Body shaming ain’t right. On any level. Doesn’t matter if you dish it you should take it. It’s disgusting and it’s 2023. LIFT OTHER WOMEN stop shaming them!!! However! 95% of the posts regarding her or Whitney’s body and/or weight gains, are in regards to the fact of HOW they gain and/or present it. It’s not healthy to drink so much alcohol, eat trash food and not go to the gym or anything. It’s simple facts. If they were presenting it in a healthy manner then it would be different but they’re not. Christen wants to fit in her 16 year old self clothes and Whitney is ashamed obviously of her weight gain so she lies and says she’s not over a certain weight. How does that look to the 16-20 year old girls that follow them and are going through body changes? I’m not saying there’s not the occasional post or comment that is absolutely wrong and is no better than them. Because until people stop putting others down that’s just how it is and it’s sad. I’m guilty of it and be honest every single person in here is guilty of it too -regardless of it being towards her or in your personal life. The world is still evolving but 9/10 of these posts are nothing of the sort. However little miss perfect refuses to evolve with the times and thinks she isn’t in the wrong.
As a former nurse who assisted addicts with their pregnancy & deliveries yeah it’s wrong to assume any type of usage for instances of self harm… however when you’re putting it on display like she does … it’s called a cry for help. But let’s be real. If she treated her health (mental and physical) half as well as she claims, none of that would happen. She doesn’t try to hide it, she literally swallows her pills with alcohol. That’s dangerous! She knows that, she knows better. But again, she doesn’t care. She is flaunting dangerous habits for young girls and women to follow - “If C does it I can!” “I want to live just like C”. - Come on. If she had half a smart conscience she would think about the consequences of her “platform”. If Whitney truly cared as much about Christen as she claims she would honestly work with her to be healthier and /or work out. But in case anyone’s not noticing Whitney’s giving up on her own health lately… if Whitney really cared, she would say something about her guzzling pills with alcohol. She would point out it’s extremely dangerous to mix alcohol as much and medications. She doesn’t. Whitney is just as ignorant about it as Christen is. You’d think with her dads history she would have a lot of issues with the clear abuse Christen does?
The girls literally says things JUST to get a rise out of this group! They fuckin knows people are listening and they knows exactly what they’re doing. Do some of the posts get out of hand? Sure. But they doesn’t give two flying fucks. They are that aggravating at times! Christen is literally Little miss I can’t be bothered who wants help but anytime someone reaches out to try, she bullies and abuses them. She could help to minimize the damage and harm done around her that would also make her feel and look better. But she won’t. She thrives off it.
Cut her some slack my ass. Quit defending her by any means.

2023.06.07 07:36 Death_on_Earth A message for you all

I just wanted to come on here to send a message. I have notice there is so many of us with parents that didn't care, or cared so much we can do basic things. I find it heart breaking. We are a community of children that should've been treated. Instead of growing with wonders, the only wonder we had was why our families weren't like other families.
So to the forgotten kids, it was never your fault you worked night and day to show your parents your worth, but they pushed you away. But I want you to know I'm proud of you, I am proud of your accomplishments, I'm proud of you grades even if they were bad cause at least you tried.
To the children who parents cared so much they can do anything, every day is a challenge and I understand, so let every day be a new challenge! Clean the house, cook a meal, unload the dish washer. Do whatever you want and whatever that will make you feel like yourself.
No matter the hardship, no matter the past. We all matter! no race, sex, nothing can change that! I am proud of you all, for the biggest accomplishment to the smallest issue, I will still be proud. Love 🫶🏻

Wood Pressed Coconut Oil - A Natural Wonder for Health and Beauty

Coconut oil has gained significant popularity in recent years due to its numerous health and beauty benefits. Among the different types of coconut oil available, wood-pressed coconut oil stands out as a superior option.
In this article, we will explore the process of wood pressing coconut oil, its unique qualities, and the incredible advantages it offers for overall well-being.

Understanding Wood Pressed Coconut Oil

Wood pressing, also known as cold pressing or traditional pressing, is a method of extracting oil from coconut kernels without the use of heat or chemicals. The process involves grating the coconut meat and then pressing it to extract the oil. The extracted oil is pure, unrefined, and retains all the natural goodness of coconuts.

The Benefits of Wood Pressed Coconut Oil

  1. High Nutritional Value
Wood cold pressed coconut oil is rich in nutrients, making it a valuable addition to your diet. It contains essential fatty acids, including lauric acid, which has antimicrobial and antiviral properties. Additionally, it is a source of vitamins E and K, as well as minerals such as iron and zinc, which support overall health and well-being.
  1. Heart-Healthy Properties
The medium-chain triglycerides (MCTs) present in wood pressed coconut oil are easily digestible and quickly converted into energy. These MCTs have been shown to have a positive impact on heart health by promoting healthy cholesterol levels and supporting cardiovascular function. Incorporating wood pressed coconut oil into your cooking can be a beneficial choice for maintaining a healthy heart.
  1. Boosts Immunity
The natural properties of wood pressed coconut oil help strengthen the immune system. Lauric acid, present in abundance, possesses antimicrobial, antiviral, and antifungal properties, which can assist in fighting off harmful pathogens and strengthening the body's defense mechanisms. Consuming wood pressed coconut oil regularly may help protect against infections and diseases.
  1. Promotes Healthy Skin and Hair
Wood pressed coconut oil is a versatile beauty aid. Its moisturizing and nourishing properties make it an excellent natural skincare product. It can be used as a moisturizer, makeup remover, or hair conditioner, leaving the skin soft, supple, and hydrated. Applying wood pressed coconut oil to the hair can help improve its strength, texture, and shine, reducing frizz and promoting overall hair health.
  1. Natural Cooking Oil
Wood pressed coconut oil is a healthier alternative to refined cooking oils. Its high smoke point makes it suitable for various cooking methods, including sautéing, stir-frying, and baking. The oil imparts a mild, pleasant flavor to dishes and retains its nutritional properties even when exposed to heat. Using wood pressed coconut oil in your culinary preparations can enhance both the taste and nutritional value of your meals.

How to Choose and Store Wood Pressed Coconut Oil

When purchasing wood pressed coconut oil, consider the following:
  • Quality: Look for organic, cold-pressed coconut oil that is free from additives and preservatives. This ensures the oil retains its natural qualities.
  • Color and Aroma: High-quality wood pressed coconut oil is transparent, with a mild aroma and a pleasant, nutty scent.
To store wood pressed coconut oil:
  • Cool and Dry: Keep the oil in a cool, dark place away from direct sunlight and heat sources to maintain its freshness and quality.
  • Airtight Container: Transfer the oil to an airtight container to prevent exposure to air, which can lead to oxidation and rancidity.
With proper storage, wood pressed coconut oil can have a shelf life of up to two years.

Incorporating Wood Pressed Coconut Oil into Your Routine

Wood pressed coconut oil offers a wide range of benefits for your health, beauty, and cooking needs. Here are some practical ways to incorporate this natural wonder into your daily routine:

1. Cooking and Baking

Use wood pressed coconut oil as a healthier alternative to refined cooking oils. Its high smoke point makes it suitable for various cooking methods. Replace your regular oil with wood pressed coconut oil when sautéing vegetables, stir-frying, or baking. The mild, nutty flavor adds a delightful twist to your dishes.

2. Skin Moisturizer

Take advantage of the moisturizing properties of wood pressed coconut oil to keep your skin soft and hydrated. Apply a small amount to your face and body after a shower or before bedtime. The oil absorbs quickly, leaving your skin nourished and supple. For added benefits, mix it with a few drops of essential oils like lavender or tea tree oil.

3. Hair Conditioning Treatment

Revitalize your hair by using wood pressed coconut oil as a conditioning treatment. Warm up a small amount of oil and massage it into your scalp and hair. Leave it on for at least 30 minutes, or overnight for deep conditioning. Wash it out thoroughly with a gentle shampoo. Regular use can help improve the texture, shine, and strength of your hair.

4. Makeup Remover

Ditch the harsh chemical makeup removers and switch to wood pressed coconut oil. Apply a small amount to a cotton pad or your fingertips and gently massage it onto your face, including the eye area, to remove makeup. The oil effortlessly dissolves makeup, even waterproof products, while nourishing your skin at the same time.

5. Oil Pulling

Oil pulling is an ancient Ayurvedic practice that promotes oral health. Take a tablespoon of wood pressed organic coconut oil and swish it around in your mouth for 15-20 minutes, making sure not to swallow it. Spit out the oil and rinse your mouth with water afterward. This practice helps eliminate bacteria, freshens breath, and promotes healthy gums.

6. Body Scrub

Create a natural body scrub by combining wood pressed coconut oil with some coarse sugar or sea salt. Gently massage this mixture onto damp skin to exfoliate and remove dead skin cells. Rinse thoroughly to reveal smoother, glowing skin. Customize your scrub by adding a few drops of your favorite essential oil for a pleasant aroma.

7. Healthy Smoothies

Boost the nutritional value of your morning smoothies by adding a tablespoon of wood pressed coconut oil. Blend it with your choice of fruits, vegetables, and other superfoods for a creamy and nutritious beverage. The oil adds a rich texture and provides a natural source of healthy fats, giving you an energy boost to start your day.
Remember to choose high-quality wood pressed coconut oil and store it properly in a cool, dark place. Incorporating this versatile oil into your daily routine will allow you to experience its numerous benefits for your overall well-being.

2023.06.07 07:33 nalarobotics Co-founder and CEO Ajay Sunkara sees huge potential manufacturing automation systems for the restaurant industry.

Co-founder and CEO Ajay Sunkara sees huge potential manufacturing automation systems for the restaurant industry.
Food preparation is not easy to automate. "Whether it's salty or spicy, it's a huge variable," says Sunkara.
Legacy automation systems were not up to the task, but Nala Robotics is leveraging cutting-edge innovation to make restaurant automation a reality. "If you introduce artificial intelligence into it, if you introduce vision technology into it, it will be much better -- and that's how we designed our entire company," says Sunkara. "In ancient Indian mythology, Nala is the maharaja of culinary, so we named the company after that."
Nala Robotics started with Indian cuisine because of the complex recipes. "We felt that if we go for Indian, the rest of the cuisines could be a subset of it," says Sunkara.
Debuting in 2021, the company's first product, the Nala Chef, is now capable of making not only Indian dishes but Thai, Chinese, and Italian foods as well. In 2022, Nala Robotics released the Pizzaiola for autonomous pizza-making, followed by the Wingman for fried foods and Spotless for dishwashing.
Each machine's benefits are similar: Restaurants have struggled to hire since the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic, opening the door for automation. "The pandemic created a huge void in the industry in terms of labor," says Sunkara. "With a robotic solution, our company is able to address that."
Nala Robotics has a demonstration kitchen in Naperville, Illinois, and a pair of campuses in India. About 50 employees are based in Illinois, and about 200 are in India.
Sunkara compares the model to the software industry, with R&D and testing in the U.S. and production in India. "Most of the assembly is done in the U.S., and the fabrication part of it is done in India," he says. "All of the research is done here, and once we figure out the solution, we send it to India for fabrication. Once it's done, we ship it here, we test it here again, and if it's satisfactory, we deliver it to the market."
With plans to both sell and lease equipment, Nala Robotics is ramping up installations in 2023. "We are currently piloting with almost every major chain in the country and across the world as well," says Sunkara.
Challenges: Perception. Most restaurants have no experience with automation, and many consumers are uneasy with the idea of robots in the kitchen.
"There's always the fear that robots are going to take away jobs, robots are going to steal our entire economy," says Sunkara. "Actually, it's the other way around, so educating people that robots are going to improve the quality of our lives."
Scaling is another challenge: "Our concentration will start with the major cities and metro areas, and then going into every small town," Sunkara continues. "That's another challenge of what customers we can serve right now."
Thirdly, Nala Robotics' price point can initially raise some eyebrows, but Sunkara is quick to point out that many restaurants can get a rapid return on their investments in automation.
Opportunities: The market is still nascent, but Sunkara forecasts that 30 to 40 percent of restaurants will utilize robotics in their operations by 2030. He forecasts quick-service restaurants will be the bulk of the market, with about 20 percent of Nala's machines going to fine-dining establishments.
Needs: "With the demand that we have, we are considering having another manufacturing facility in the U.S. for orders that are high priority and for customers who need the manufacturing to be done in the U.S.," says Sunkara.

2023.06.07 07:16 Shadowthesame14 I need websites *for* teens. Also posted on r/nostupidquestions cuz i forgot about this sub.

What websites are good for teen advice
Long story short, im in my late 20s im disabled and currently completely reliant on my parents for everything except going to work and paying my own bills. I cant even keep my room clean. I have no idea how to improve partially cuz my own idleness has destroyed my stamina. I need to start small. Start over. I lived on my own for 2 years and that was a disaster. Dishes in the sink for months. Delivery for every meal. I know nothing about how to take care of myself other than laundry(most of it) pretty much.
I want to find websites aimed at teens that can provide advice and tips on how to improve and get my skills up to speed. And rebuild my stamina.
Teenagers are doing the same thing as me. Learning what they need to move out. Any websites aimed at young adults with no parental figures work too (part of why i ended up like this is my parents’ complete lack of parenting when i was a child).
I have tried to google stuff. But have only found websites for parents trying to get kids to do chores. But im the kid. I need something else.
Does anyone know of any websites that could help. Or challenges. Maybe you have a website your child found helpful. Or that you yourself found helpful.
I really appreciate any help. I dont want to live in mom’s basement forever. Thank you

2023.06.07 07:02 Sbrii Fat Rats

My son has two rats, Jeff and Lasso, who are almost 2 years old. We're here to ask for help regarding how to tell if they're overweight. My son is scrupulous about the ratties diet, giving them mostly veggies and fruits, with very occasional unsalted nuts or seeds in their treat dish. Their main food is the Oxbow pellets. Today I wanted to give the boys an extra little treat, some pasta from dinner. My son asked me not to (ok, they're his pets). When I asked why, he said he didn't want the boys to get fat, and that he was already worried they're a bit chubby. I asked him if it would be alright if I asked the community for advice and my son said ok.
So everyone, what are the clues that a pet rat might be getting fat vs being a healthy weight? Are there visual clues? Should we weigh them? Any help is appreciated.
