2023.05.30 16:52 Commander_Oganessian I've not had as much motivation to work on my fanfics, but Nonetheless here is The Trials and Tribulations of a 'Traitorous' HiveWing Chapter 3

Once he starts to wake up he feels a comforting warmth around him. Opening his eyes his vision is still dark. Once his vision clears he realizes he's looking at a black claw.
Following the claw he finds Palinurus snuggled against his back, her face settled in a peaceful bliss.
'This feels nice,' muses Crabron, making sure not to move and wake her, 'But should it? She's my friend and this is a very intimate pose.'
'What if you became more?' asks another train of thought, 'You could be happy.'
'But what if she doesn't want anything more,' questions Crabron.
'Of course she does, think back a little bit, she wasn't looking for guards she was looking at you. Need proof? Her flustered response is all you need, or how about when you mentioned dating and she hastily backtracked?'
As he is arguing with himself Crabron notices that her smile has turned to fear and her breath quickens, as she mumbles, "No, Crabron! No, no, no!"
'She must be having a nightmare!' thinks Crabron as he shakes her awake, "Palinurus, Palinurus, wake up. I'm alright."
With a gasp she jumps awake. Wrapping his wings around her he whispers, "It's okay Palinurus. It's okay. I'm right here. I'm alright."
"Thank the moons!" Exclaims Palinurus, "I dreamt that you never woke up from Sheyleyong's attack. I was thinking about what I would do. If, if you died. I was thinking about how I could even live with you gone," she starts to panic. "I couldn't bear the thought of living without you and all the things I would never say. What I would miss out on!"
As she rambles an he carefully shuts her mouth with a gentle claw silencing her worries.
In the sudden silence he speaks, "You don't need to worry about that, ever. I'll always be here when you need me, even if it means leaving a mission. You've been at my side for as long as I can remember. Hell I don't even remember how we met, just that you've been there for me just as I have for you. Some stuck up, slaving, honey snorter, won't change that."
She looks at him with tears in her eyes, "But you nearly died. When you were out it was like you were gone, no matter what I did you never even flinched, you had two dislocated ribs and you'd lost a lot of blood."
"Looks like Clearsight hasn't decided to accept me." Comments Crabron with a smug but gentle smile, "And a couple dislocated ribs certainly won't kill me."
A look of sudden remembrance crosses her face, "Ooh, that reminds me, to fix your ribs you need to relocate them yourself."
"How am I supposed to do that?" Asks Crabron.
"According to Viceroy, the doctor who lives here, you need to take a deep breath and try to blow it out without opening your mouth and plugging your nose." Crabron tries and gasps in pain.
Palinurus places a comforting claw on his shoulder, "Keep at it until you feel them pop back into place. If you black out I have some hartshorn."
After a few painful attempts he finally feels them relocate with a relieved sigh, "Wow, I never thought it was that hard to breathe. Where are we?"
"Viceroy's house, in the Bloodworm Hive SilkWing District. I told you that." Says Palinurus with a disapproving look, "Viceroy didn't mention brain damage."
Crabron smiles as he pushes aside the entrance curtain, "That you did, but where in the district?"
"Just outside the Plaza of the Hope for Peace." Says Palinurus as Crabron lays eyes on a large, vividly painted statue depicting Monarch, Wasp, and a rather monochromatic LeafWing, each working together to hold up a crown. "How is that thing not tearing through the silk?"
In reply a voice comes from the street as Grayling steps through a line of SilkWings, "It's made from treestuff and it's hollow, as such it's a lot lighter than it looks."
"Hello again Grayling," Crabron suddenly remembers something, "Did I miss the handout?"
"No, I fact you're just in time," he motions to the line he just walked through, "These are the ones who showed up. Come with me. Palinurus, you too."
Grayling leads him to a row of tables overflowing with baskets full of various goods with yet more still in the crates behind it, "How much did y'all get?"
"Three quarters of the entire warehouse." Answers Leafcutter as she flicks her tail at a table, "You'll be there with Palinurus, your father and I will be asleep at home. However before I go," she grabs a curious scabbard off a table and hands it to him, "I do believe this is yours."
Looking at it he notices that it seems to be made out of long strands of grass. Wrapping one loop before his wings and the other just behind his wings Crabron asks, "What is it?"
"Sheyleyong's sword," answers Leafcutter, "I took the liberty to procure a new scabbard from my contact. Apparently she had to steal this one from another group that doesn't share their opinion. When her daughter was told to get it they had a big argument. I have never seen such a dysfunctional family. But I get it, she was hiding someone."
"If she's hiding it, how'd you know?" Asks Crabron.
She points to her eyes, "Her eyes, it was just for a split second, but it was there. The same look I always hid during my experimentation phase, before I met your father."
"You experimented? With who?" Asks Crabron.
"Well, I say it's time to stop wasting these family's days, and get me some sleep. Each family gets one basket and try not to vandalize anything." Dismisses Leafcutter as she rushes away calling behind her, "He's in charge guys!"
"You'd think she 'experimented' with my mother with how she rushed away," muses Palinurus, "How is the sword not slicing through those grass fibers?"
"Maybe it's lined with something?" Asks Crabron as he gives the scabbard a light squeeze, feeling something hard as steel between the wrappings and sword, "I'll have to ask my mom."
Stepping behind the table he calls out, "I can help the next family!"
A few families down the line Crabron hears a squeaky voice, "That's him! That's the Hiveing that saved me!"
As a familiar purple dragonet runs up, his mother close behind, Crabron smiles, "If it isn't Dusky, the toughest dragonet I ever met. Have you shown your friends your awesome new scar?"
"Not yet, he has construction work today," says the dragoness accompanying him, presumably his mother.
"It's Friday shouldn't he be at school?" Asks Crabron.
She gives a sad nod, "Yes, but after his father died he was expected to pick up his shifts, Thursday nights and Friday to Monday days."
A look of horror crosses Palinurus' face, "He's a dragonet! He deserves an education!"
Dusky's mother sighs, "I know, but Lady Bloodworm won't allow it."
"I'll see if I can change her mind," growls Crabron.
"How?" Asks Palinurus.
"Enough threats can change any mind." Hisses Crabron before taking on a kind look, "Say, little Dusky, what is your favorite fruit?"
"Bananas!" Chirps Dusky.
Taking an extra bushel of bananas from the crates behind him Crabron places them and an extra loaf of bread into a basket before handing it to Dusky's mother, "Have a wonderful day."
Once the line diminishes Crabron looks over the still remaining food and tells the other SilkWings that were helping him pass out baskets to help themselves to the food.
"Your parents say you killed Vinegaroon's son last night," prefaces Grayling, "Is it true?"
"Who?" Asks Crabron.
"Lord Sheyleyong is, or rather was, Vinegaroon's youngest son." Supplies Grayling.
"Oh, him." says Crabron, "I did."
"How'd you do it?" Asks Grayling.
"Nothing too hard," says Crabron with a shrug.
"Not too hard?" Exclaims Grayling, "In Vinegaroon hive every HiveWing is expected to start training in combat at five and serve for three years minimum. However, the most skilled Dragons are placed under Sheyleyong, yet you killed him!"
"I wouldn't say those soldiers were skilled," scoffs Crabron.
"What armor were they wearing?" Questions Grayling.
"Leather." Says Crabron.
"Then those were probably peasants sent along with him." Dismisses Grayling, "Vinegaroon's Midnight Sons wear plate armor coated in a black lacquer, with the exception of Sheyleyong himself."
Crabron's mind flashes back to that night as he once again hears Sheyleyong, "My son has cared for Valeriophonus, that's the dragoness you just murdered, for years. He was sure he would marry her, but now that will never happen."
'Valeriophonus must've been a peasant,' Thinks Crabron, 'By Clearsight! That might've been her first mission, and I killed her!'
"Crabron? Asks Palinurus a concerned tone in her voice, "Are you okay?"
"I killed her." Breaths Crabron, "It was probably her first mission and I killed her."
"Who? Who did you kill?" Asks Palinurus
"One of the soldiers sent on what was supposed to be a simple investigation last night was a peasant girl named Valeriophonus. She was no older than five or six, probably on her first mission, a-and I killed her," her terrified face flashes through Crabron's eyes causing an involuntary shiver to race down his spine, "I saw her face, I saw the light leave her eyes. She was terrified."
Palinurus gives his shoulder a comforting squeeze, "I'm sure you didn't have a choice."
"But did I?" Asks Crabron, "We could've tried to talk our way out of it, or escaped after they arrested us, but my mom decided to kill one of those innocent peasants in cold blood. Not to mention she feigned surrender, now whenever one of the Chrysalis actually tries to surrender the guards won't trust them!"
"Crabron," says Grayling with an understanding look, "Killing will never get any easier, but unless a HiveWing's eyes are white then that HiveWing chose to attack. That's what gets me through fights."
"And if their eyes are white?" Questions Crabron.
Grayling shrugs, "Then it's not them, it's Wasp forcing them to fight."
“Y-yes of course,” says Crabron before changing the subject, "Does Lady Bloodworm ever leave Bloodworm Place?"
"Not without, at the absolute least, a dozen guards," answers Grayling.
"Rest up, we have a night trip to make," states Crabron before nodding to Palinurus, "You too."
"Where are we going to sleep?" Asks Palinurus, "This isn't our hive."
"I have a place," says Grayling.
"What would your pare- mother say?" Asks Crabron.
"She didn't handle the death of my brother and father very well." Answers Grayling before mumbling, "Now I live alone."
"I'm so sorry," apologizes Palinurus, "It must be hard on you."
"Don't be," says the gray Silkwing with a smile. "It gives me more resolve."
Once they arrive at Grayling's house Crabron spies writing materials on a desk, "Before I sleep I'll need to write a letter to my parents, telling them my plan so they don't panic."
Taking his newly written scroll he finds Codling and passes the scroll over with a kind request to deliver it to Leafcutter.
Re-entering Grayling's house he curls up beside Palinurus quickly falling asleep.
After a brief stop to steal a pair of spears, support straps included, and basic armor for his SilkWings as well as a roundel dagger and armor for himself he leads his group to Bloodworm Place. Sneaking to the windows Crabron spies Bloodworm sitting at an overflowing table with her courtiers.
"She has that much food yet her SilkWings are starving!" Cries Palinurus, "That's perverse!"
Yanking Palinurus into the nearby bushes Crabron hisses, "Lower your voice! We are trying not to be discovered." At her meek nod he continues, "Good now we have to find all possible entrances and exits and where Bloodworm sleeps. So somebody needs to track Bloodworm through the windows while the others examine the outside."
"I'll track Bloodworm," volunteers Grayling, "However there are areas without windows so I'll have to track her from inside."
"That seems risky," says Palinurus.
"My family has always been Hive Drones." Grayling waves, "I just have to act like one if I get caught."
"As soon as things seem dicey, run," orders Crabron, "I don't need to lose anyone."
"Yes, sir!" Snaps Grayling as he removes his gambeson and kernel helm.
"You make me sound like some old, grizzled guard," muses Crabron as Grayling slips in through a window and worms his way into the serving staff.
"This is your mission," says Palinurus, "It makes sense for you to be the leader."
She picks up his chin and whispers in an attempt of a sultry tone, "Besides it leaves us alone."
"If I'm the leader, as you say, then I think you should study the bottom floor and I'll use my wings to study the upper floors. Keep track of any potential exits and remain unseen." says Crabron missing her insinuation.
If Crabron had looked behind him he would've seen Palinurus smack a fist onto the ground with a hiss, "I came on too strongly."
After searching the exterior he spies Grayling on the topmost floor balcony waving him in, swooping around to pick up Palinurus he drops her and Grayling's armor on the balcony, "Did you find her?"
"Yes, she is protected by two guards at her door." Reports Grayling.
"What about in the hallway leading to it?" Asks Palinurus.
"None," answers Grayling, "Hell I haven't seen a guard, except those two, since I came in!"
"Didn't you say she's paranoid?" Asks Palinurus.
"Maybe she feels safe in her home." Shrugs Crabron, "Though we're about to shatter that illusion."
"Something doesn't feel right about that." Says Palinurus as a visible shudder runs down her back, "Grayling, I think you should don your armor before we head in."
"Relax, it's just nerves," dismisses Crabron, a confident smile on his face, "We'll be in and out before they can spring any traps. Grayling if you will?"
"Right this way." Stopping just short of a three way intersection, Grayling motions to the intersecting hall, "Just at the end of that hallway is her room, be careful though the hall is rather empty."
Glancing around the corner he sees a long, wide hallway painted with a vivid scarlet red, the columns painted a vibrant and contrasting yellow. The floor is covered with a plush high pile, purple carpet trimmed with golden flamesilk.
At each column is a statue of various important HiveWings, including Bloodworm herself, each supporting a flame silk lantern, half of which are covered by silk darkening the hall.
The gaps between the columns are occupied with shallow pools and elaborate fountains, where there isn't a doorway. Looking to the other side of the hall the space between columns is occupied with huge and nearly invisible panes of crystal glass leading to the night outside.
Following the colors up he sees an arched glass ceiling that is completely invisible against the night sky, giving the impression of being outside without the wet of the monsoon rains that have just started up.
At the end of the hall stands two guards, just as Grayling reported, eerily staring straight ahead with empty, glowing white eyes and spears at the ready to intercept any intruders.
Dipping back around the corner, Crabron digs his talons into the tree stuff wall and climbs up to the darkened arch of glass, not willing to risk his wingbeats being heard. After examining the slick gold-plated girders supporting the glass he determines that they are too flush to utilize as claw holds. Opting to use his claws, Crabron slowly inches along the top of the wall until he is above a guard. Watching a lightning bolt in the distance he counts it out until the thunder strikes. When another strikes at a similar distance he drops, fist balled at the ready, and lands on one of the guards just as the thunder hits, overwhelming what little sound his strike made.
Hooking his arm around the other's throat he waits until he stops struggling. Motioning to his friends they run up the hall, claw taps silenced by the rug.
"What'd I tell you?" Smiles Crabron as he removes the key ring from one of the guards and starts trying them on the door. "Easy. We'll be in and out lickety split."
"We still should be quick," warns Palinurus, "Who knows when these guards will wake up."
"Of course." calls Crabron as the lock gives a quiet click and he pushes open the door revealing what could be the definition of luxury.
The color scheme and carpet match the hall with a sunken pit in the floor surrounded by various lounge cushions and squat tables, all facing a stone fire pit. Looking around the room he sees various highly detailed tapestries depicting HiveWing triumphs and SilkWing suffering hung between curtained doorways to different rooms.
"I didn't take Bloodworm as the devout type," whispers Palinurus.
Following her eyes through a slightly open curtain Crabron sees a large, regal portrait of Clearsight writing her book of prophecies while nestled within the wings of her primary husband, Sunstreak, though she is far more prominent. Below the painting is a short wooden desk cluttered with various offerings, from jewelry to food to a small statuette of Clearsight, between unlit incense lamps.
Entering the room, Palinurus picks up a finely detailed egg carved from jade from the shrine to admire it.
"Woah, woah, woah!" Calls Crabron trying to keep his voice at a whisper, "Put that back now!" Startled, she quickly puts it back. Sitting down in front of the shrine he closes his eyes, keeping his head down, "Forgive her Clearsight, for she didn't know."
"What the hell was that!" Cries Palinurus.
"Stealing from a shrine is the surest way to be denied by Clearsight's doormen. Being left to wander the void as a twisted shade," says Crabron.
"I just thought it was a pretty color," mumbles Palinurus.
"I'll see about buying you some jade knick knacks." Suggests Crabron.
"Like that one?" Asks Palinurus pointing to the egg.
"I'm sure you don't want a fertility charm," dismisses Crabron.
"A what?" Asks Palinurus.
"A fertility charm," repeats Crabron, "You keep it where eggs come from and pull it out when you're about to make eggs. Pretty common with Lady Jewel's crowd."
Her confusion turns to horror, "Ew, ew, ew! I had it in my claws! I eat with those!" She rushes towards the curtain separating the shrine from the common area, still somehow keeping her voice down, "I need a sink, now!"
“Is she alright?” asks Grayling, catching his eye through the swinging curtain.
Crabron shrugs as he leaves the shrine room, “She was holding a Jade egg and just learned what they're used for."
"She had to learn somehow," he holds out a mask of Odorata, messenger of Clearsight and a guide for lost souls, "There's a black table cloth over there."
"Brilliant!" Calls Crabron with a pat on Grayling's back, "Bloodworm is obviously devout so she'll listen if she thinks Odorata is after her! We need to turn that tablecloth into a hooded cloak, can you sew?"
He smiles, "Of course, I have been living alone after all. I think I saw sewing supplies in a side room."
By the time Palinurus re-enters the room Crabron is already wearing his makeshift costume as Grayling finishes his stitches, "There you are. Looks like we have a plan! Now I need you on standby as Clearsight if I need it, Grayling you will be a look out after you wake Bloodworm. Understood?"
With two simultaneous salutes Crabron goes through the only wooden, yes wooden, door in the suite revealing a giant bed with silky, see through curtains. Stepping up on a chest at the end of the bed he points from Grayling to Bloodworm before pointing from Palinurus to the shadows at the corner of the room where her dark scales render her nearly invisible.
Getting the message, Grayling taps her on the thigh until she starts to stir, prompting Grayling to sprint out the door.
Striking an intimidating pose he glares down at her with his wings wide. With a start Lady Bloodworm shoots up her back against the headboard, "W-who are you."
As lightning flashes lighting up his skull mask Crabron speaks with a deep projecting voice, "Madame Clearsight is hurt that you don't recognize her one and only messenger!"
Recognition spreads across her face, "You're Odorata, am I dead?"
"Not yet," hisses Crabron, "But you will be if you don't heed my mistresses warning. She told me that you must not allow dragonets to work on school days or a figure, scales dark as night, will send you to Clearsight early."
"I'll get right on that!" Says Bloodworm with a sarcastic tone.
"Are you questioning Clearsight?" Asks Crabron.
"Of course not," says Bloodworm with a shake of her head.
"I don't believe you," says Crabron before he gets an idea, "In fact Clearsight wants to give you a reminder."
Drawing his sword he slashes it across the side of her snout, digging deep enough to surly leave a scar, "Let that be a reminder of Clearsight's warning. If you do not obey, a matching gash will adorn your throat. Now I must take my leave. May you live long."
Making his escape he finds Grayling at the door to the hallway. Spotting him out of the corner of his eye, Grayling starts to walk down the ornate hall outside Bloodworms suite before speaking up, "How'd it go?"
Taking the hood off he lets the Odorata mask hang around his neck, "Optimistically it went well. Realistically I might need to pay her a visit out of costume."
Grayling rolls his eyes, "Knowing her, that's a definite revisit."
Crabron's reply dies on his tongue as a voice booms from the hallway they had just started down, "Intruders, identify yourself!"
"Shit," hisses Crabron, reversing direction just to see another group cutting them off at the other side of the intersection.
Thinking quickly, Crabron rips a painting from the wall and hurls it through the nearby window, shattering it. Without needing instruction Grayling leaps through the window and into the pool below it, however Palinurus hesitates at the window.
Avoiding a slash from a guard, Crabron calls out, "Go!"
"Not without you!" Exclaims Palinurus, her helmet narrowly deflecting a blow.
"No time to discuss this!" Hisses Crabron as he headbutts Palinurus hard enough to knock her through.
Nursing a cut claw, Palinurus surfaces to see Crabron draw both of his blades and rear up onto his back legs, his escape now blocked by a guard.

2023.05.30 16:52 rmurphy [US] A5 X catch and release $320 + shipping

[US] A5 X catch and release $320 + shipping
I purchased this used from this group and at the same time I bought an A6 X, for my purposes I’m keeping the 6 and putting this 5 back up for sale here. The posting from when I bought it is here:
The only difference from the original posting is the Broken HOM pen is not included, it was non functional.
This sale includes the A5 X, modified grey folio, extra blue folio, Norris Digital Jumbo with 4 extra nibs and nib changing tool, generic charger, original box.
Condition is good, the original post mentioned a small blemish on the screen which is there and didn’t bother me at all, no impact on function. The tablet and folio do show signs of use, but functions 100%. It really is a great device, it’s just bigger than what I need and I’m prioritizing portability and weight which is why I’m keeping the 6 and selling this.
As mentioned in the title the price is 320 plus shipping which is likely 330 to continental US.

2023.05.30 16:51 Firm_Cloud_3278 Burning My Crêpe is open for new members!

Hello everyone!
We are Burning My Crêpe, a breton-themed camp running since 2018. But what is breton-themed, you may ask? Well, it's the world's birthplace of crepes, in the western region of Brittany, France, where two of the initial camp lead trio originated from. We offer large gifting sessions (over 2 hours) of flamed crepes & pole dancing at sunset on Monday, Wednesday, and Friday, representing over 1500 crepes gifted per year.
Our little secret? The batter is made from scratch and from fresh ingredients, then flamed with a delicious orange liquor. In addition, we do have some playa shenanigans running at the camp, that could be considered extra gifting.
We are a small camp, counting 14 people today, with a pretty good diversity: almost 50/50 on male/non-male and 6 countries represented. We want to keep it small so everyone can spend time together and form a nice little group of happy burners (we have been 30+ in the past and realized it was a terrible idea for the 'camp spirit').
Who are we looking for?
What do we provide?
What don't we provide?
What do we expect in return?
Don't hesitate to reply to this post or to reach out in DM, we would then organize a conversation between you and us to get to know each other, this is very important to us :)
Thanks for reading this far!
Toupie-toupie and 1-40, BMC camp leads

2023.05.30 16:50 autotldr South Africa grants Putin and Brics leaders diplomatic immunity for summit

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 66%. (I'm a bot)
South Africa has issued blanket diplomatic immunity to all leaders attending an August summit, implying that Vladimir Putin will be able to travel to Johannesburg and not fear South Africa acting on an international criminal court warrant for his arrest.
As an ICC member, South Africa would be under pressure, and possibly under a legal requirement, to arrest Putin.
South Africa is hosting a summit of the Brics group - Brazil, China, India, Russia and South Africa - in August.
The government is looking into the wording of the Rome Statute, the charter that established the ICC, for a loophole that would enable Putin to attend without South Africa having to arrest him.
Article 98 of the ICC Rome Statute states: "The court may not proceed with a request for surrender or assistance which would require the requested State to act inconsistently with its obligations under international law with respect to the State or diplomatic immunity of a person of a third state, unless the court can first obtain the cooperation of that third State for the waiver of the immunity." Some say this wording provides South Africa with a chance to invite Putin and not be under any obligation to arrest him.
It is not clear yet if Putin would be willing to save South Africa from the diplomatic dilemma by not attending in person.

Do any of you recognize the brand who made this pen?
I just bought my first vape pen for 100€. The guy who gave it to me (a friend of mine, as weed it’s not legal where I live) said it was a pen with 2g of live rosin inside of it and I know nothing else about it. He gave it to me without a box and I can’t find nothing about it on the internet with the little information I have. I would like to find info about the strain, thc percentage and the original price. Does any of you recognize the brand looking at the yellow logo?

2023.05.30 16:50 happyjeep_beep_beep How do I put myself first at work without feeling guilty?

A few years ago I changed jobs within my company. At first I really liked it, learning new things and different processes. Fast forward to now and I'm not happy with my job. The environment and culture in my department is not the same as it used to be, coworkers are condescending, demanding and do not follow direction. It has grown increasingly frustrating for me and has affected my life outside of work, including my marital relationship. For the first time in my many years at this company (10+) I have considered quitting.
There is only one other person that does my job and I was put in this role years ago to ease the burden of workload on them. This person has been a mentor since I took this position and I respect them very much.
At this same time, without knowing what is going on, I was approached to go back to my original role at this company. Of course, my initial thought was of this other person and how it would affect them. Long story short, after some thinking, I've decided to go back to my original role and have stated that I would like to train the person taking my spot so that there is no interruption of processes.
It is taking longer than originally thought to hire someone and I now hate my job. I have no idea if I should just proceed with the move to get myself out of this situation. But I can't imagine doing that without feeling overwhelmingly guilty of leaving my mentor stranded and I'm sure there will be people who will see this as betrayal.

2023.05.30 16:49 ThoughtEducational10 Do I just take the offer?

I'm a college dropout (burnout) self-taught software developer and got a job about 3 years ago in a company, I was thrilled when I got the job. I applied to a different position, but they saw my resume with technical skills and asked if I would do a technical interview, I agreed and go the job. For the past 3 years, I've had no path whatsoever and my work has been doing basic front-end scripts in a proprietary language that's already integrated with the DB (so no CRUD operations, just queries inside and function they have), most challenging project I was given was to make a small service in Go for automating data loading (getting CSV files from Google Cloud Storage, check remove the ones that are already loaded, processing the data into the suitable format and load the correct ones through an API) I did it all myself, no pair, no shadowing, no help from seniors for deployment and think I've grown extensibly in the process. They're now trying to throw me out to the point it's now moral harassment (1v1 with management stopped in the beggining of the year and have been getting minimal work for 2 months, less than a ticket per week), they can't fire me since I have a permanent contract. Today I spoke with the head of HR about this and was offered an agreement to leave with compensation values on par with the law (would be less than 5000€). I refused stating I don't feel I've fulfilled the objectives I set out to accomplish with this position which was gaining confidence to be on par with market standards, asked for more projects and stated that when I feel confident enough I would get out by my own feet without the need for money. HR tried to convince me otherwise, that it wasn't guaranteed management would actually give me projects to grow, I didn't budge and they were not happy about it. Fact is I don't feel on par to actually be able to get another job rn, all recruiter interviews I had the past months didn't return any offers and I also never got around to making a portfolio, I have little to no experience with advanced data structures and algorithms and no knowledge of design patterns. The way I see it, I'll just use this time while employed doing next to nothing to pick up the pace and make a backend portfolio, study what I need to and become more confident in my knowledge instead of getting the money and doing it while unemployed (less pressure for me), downside is since I have a permanent contract I by law have to give a warning of at least 60 days before quitting or they just keep those 60 days for themselves, which I think most recruitment companies would not be willing to wait that long for me, there is a possibility they'll just let me go without it (company has to agree to it) but they might not just to screw me over, it's at their discretion. Do you think I made the right call by not taking the deal? Inb4: what I say about law is what is applicable by law in my country, I know the law of my country, trust me, was a union representative for quite some time.

2023.05.30 16:49 ThenSituation7824 I never thought we would be here

I just have to say how grateful I am, I didn’t think it was possible for us to be here right now. My WH had an 8 month affair, the first DDay was only 3 weeks into it. I played naive for the following 7 months not accepting he was still in it even though anytime I posted here I felt like everyone would point out he was still lying. I couldn’t accept it. Over those 7 months I lived in constant fear, he never left his job, and I felt like I was being rejected over and over again. After our next DDay 3 months ago I kicked him out and was basically preparing to file for divorce. My WS seemed to not be choosing me, was so incredibly selfish, and didn’t see how much damage he had caused. But the thing I had been praying for finally happened, he wanted to choose me, he wanted to choose our kids, he was falling in love with me again. He started to see how flawed his thinking was and starting to do extensive work in IC. The stars aligned and he was able to finally change jobs (his first day at his new job is today!). Our therapeutic separation led by our counselor ends in two weeks and he’ll move back in and I actually can’t wait. I’m still trying to be cautious, but I really see a change in his heart, a change in his actions, and even how he says things and comforts me is so different in a positive way. I know there is so much more work to still do and still a lot of trust to be built but I feel so encouraged. I hope this can encourage others because only two months ago I was an email away to reaching out to an attorney.

2023.05.30 16:48 Nana_923 Choosing the Right Excavator Equipment Planet Equipment

Choosing the Right Excavator Equipment Planet Equipment
What are the things to consider when choosing the right excavator? Once you’ve been hired for a new position as a result of a successful bid, it’s time to confirm that you have all the required tools. One of the most common pieces of construction equipment used by businesses to complete new projects is the excavator. Choosing the best excavator might be challenging with so many alternatives available.

Fortunately, this lesson will show you how to pick an excavator that meets your needs. After that, match your excavator to the task’s requirements, the work that has been done, and the job site itself. Make sure you have access to any feature support you’ll need for upcoming assignments.
It’s best to select a knowledgeable partner you can trust to offer the necessary tools and any parts you’ll need for upcoming repairs and upgrades. All of the following requirements should be satisfied by your construction supply company, giving you confidence in your choice.
Deliver on Your Promises The most important element to think about when choosing the right excavator is that it must finish the task. To be sure your future excavator has enough power for your work, look at the hydraulic systems and testing alternatives. There are many of individuals who will brag about how effective their method is and how much they can do in a single workday.
More potent hydraulic systems enable you to increase your production and efficiency since you are supplying the power you require. The best assistance for your assignment is also part of the performance. Therefore, consider all of the tasks your excavator will need to complete while picking your choice.
There are two major support options to think about for your excavator: zero tail swing and zero house swing features. These arrangements allow your operator to operate in close proximity to dig sites, walls, and other obstructions.
The zero-swing tail of the excavator makes it more maneuverable and reduces the possibility of collision with neighboring objects, structures, or machinery. Additionally, it shields your operator from making touch with the excavator’s front and sides during turning.
Zero-swing options are a fantastic option if you are operating in an area with several obstructions on either side. This configuration, however, calls for a huge excavator, which isn’t always suitable for a project site.
Most excavators have an independent boom, which offers them an advantage over conventional backhoes. Your operator can control the machine more effectively and provide a solid foundation with less movement thanks to the boom. You get more visibility and power with more efficient operations.
Make it fit your website. Take into account the needs and risks of the project site while choosing your excavator.
How does your building site look? Imagine it, replete with risks, demands that are right now, and demands that you expect to arise as your project moves through each step. Imagine all of your requirements before making an excavator buy; this is the most practical method.
It’s advisable to select an excavator based on your typical project if you run a large business or want long-term equipment. Different models, for instance, operate better on vast, level plains than in densely populated cities with numerous neighboring structures and barriers.
After taking into account your area, assess the tasks carried out on a normal job site. The ideal excavator for your company must be able to lift, haul, reach, dig, and do a number of other jobs. Examine prior projects and collect precise measurements, such as weights or excavation depth.
When choosing an excavator for your project, keep the following essential requirements in mind:
Engine force. In order to move around your workplace and do your tasks, you’ll need a strong engine. Include the piston stroke and bore in your specifications so you may compare the power of various engines. Weight. Focus on the equipment, operator, and load choices that contribute to the maximum operational weight. You don’t want a big, destructive excavator on your property. Size. Verify that your excavator can fit on the worksite. The standard method for sizing excavators is tonnage, which corresponds to their operational weight. Breakout force grows directly as tonnage does. Dimensions of a bucket Because buckets are one of the most common applications for excavators, be sure to check the types of buckets it supports and the bucket option’s maximum capacity. Size of Excavator Is Important There are several excavators in a range of sizes. While you’re considering your employment requirements and the normal work environment you encounter, start the process of narrowing down your search. First, look at the size and kind of the excavators. Pick a size, such 5 tons, rather than a “small,” keeping in mind that classifications are broad and manufacturer requirements differ. Examine the most typical excavators: little or compact in size. Typically, the smallest excavators are the most mobile. They weigh anything from 2,100 pounds to just about ten tons. A micro is perfect for little jobs and those needing a small workspace, such as those requiring the ability to go around a building or working in areas where there are numerous cables buried in the ground. In addition to consuming the least energy, they also harm the sidewalk, road, and yard the least. Standard. Standard excavators are those that weigh more than 10 tons but less than 45 tons. These are the most flexible excavators, able to perform a variety of jobs and operate in practically any environment. They will be hefty and injure the terrain they must travel since they have a lot of strength. They are strong and portable, but they take up a lot of room. They are fairly widespread in the construction sector. Large. Excavators are categorized as heavy machinery and can weigh up to 95 tons. These devices are the real workhorses of industry. They are not common in cities or in locations where there are many hills close to the construction site, but they are always available to supply energy for large-scale construction projects. There will need to be a significant investment in equipment as well as a trailer to transfer these gadgets to each building site. If you do, you’ll be able to tell if you require this much size and strength. There are many different combinations available for each part. Thanks to contemporary developments, standard and compact excavators are now more adaptable for a range of task scenarios. These include the excavator’s undercarriage’s capacity to retract to fit through narrow openings, such fence gates, and then extend to provide a solid base when the excavator needs one to finish the job. All Depends on Size What Advantages Come With Mini Excavators?
Even while a standard or large excavator’s power is effective for various tasks, it shouldn’t be the only one taken into account. Compared to bigger excavators, mini excavators have a number of benefits, including:
Less of an impact is felt. Because they are smaller and lighter, mini excavators leave fewer track traces and do less damage to the ground. The footprint is more compact. Compact mini excavators are easier to use while working on a small or busy task site, such a parking lot. Transportation is easy. Mini excavators may be loaded into the back of a utility vehicle or a compact trailer for simple transit between job sites. The transport load is minimal. Some Cat mini excavator models may be legal to trailer and tow with a basic Class C California driver’s license since their operating weight is less than 10,000 pounds. For tasks requiring only a small amount of room, mini excavators are ideal. For instance, working in a backyard requires navigating gates and a constrained area. Many of the same duties that a regular excavator can perform, but on a smaller scale, can be completed by a little excavator. Job tasks that would ordinarily need manual digging can be greatly sped up this way. ADVERTISE OUR MINI EXCAVATORS
When ought to one use a mini excavator? What does a little excavator serve? Mini excavators are incredibly flexible since they can be fitted with a variety of accessories. Because of their small size and light weight, mini excavators are more useful than you may imagine. These four tasks are suitable for this kind of equipment. What does a little excavator serve? Mini excavators are incredibly flexible since they can be fitted with a variety of accessories. Because of their small size and light weight, mini excavators are more useful than you may imagine. These four tasks are suitable for this kind of equipment.
  1. Putting in or fixing a utility line The best tool for digging trenches for new or replacement lines is an excavator. When using an excavator, you are trenching behind yourself, however when using a trencher, you are trenching directly into the trench you wish to make. Instead of placing your spoil on the side of the trench, where you might need to move it with another tractor, you can place it where you need it.
2. Demolition When preparing an area for construction, an excavator is a useful tool to have. You may place the material where you want it to be dumped because the excavator can swing 360 degrees. Pool excavation, landscaping, and building pad excavation are tasks that almost exclusively fall within the purview of excavators. When you need to over-excavate a pad for compaction, an additional benefit of excavators is that you may quickly meter the material to the desired thickness for optimal compaction. Another fantastic application for an excavator is to dig the footings for structures like retaining walls or buildings.
  1. Dismantling When tearing down a concrete patio or building, a small excavator might be useful. When pulling out the debris and putting it into the truck or trailer, the machine can be fitted with a hydraulic thumb to hold it in place. Break apart concrete or rocks using a hydraulic hammer or breaker.
  2. Drilling Holes The little excavator is essential for building projects where operators drill holes in numerous places because of its ability to maneuver in limited areas. If workers utilize a small excavator, they won’t have to rely on manual shoveling or other hand tools to drill the holes. You can drill at just about any angle and reach over obstacles using the mini excavator. Additionally, because the drill is hydraulically propelled, you may place it wherever the excavator stick’s end is.
Comfort for the operator is essential. It’s crucial to match the right excavator to your demands while making your selection. Additionally, it’s crucial to pair the appropriate crew with the suitable excavator.
Many varieties have ergonomic seats and controls that are intended with the operator’s comfort in mind. Choose a cab that has ample room and enables quick access to all the excavator’s controls and features. Your operator can work comfortably and adapt to different operators thanks to chairs that are adjustable and have lateral movement.
The heating and cooling system should be taken into account when choosing an excavator as part of the comfort factor. These must have adequate power to maintain the comfort of your space. Controls similar to those seen in cars and trucks are common in modern cabs. Check these out to make sure the controls are easy to use. Look for two vents: one in front of and one behind the operator’s seat.
More comfort should be taken into account as the excavator is used by your operators for extended periods of time. Choose an excavator that will improve performance rather than hamper it.
There are more tools required for the work in addition to an excavator.
When you need to accomplish more than just dig, you’ll need a different excavator. Consider the accessories it can hold if you need a machine that is adaptable. Excavators have access to a wide range of attachments that may assist with a number of jobs, such as the following:
Buckets. With a variety of styles for digging, grading, ditch cleaning, and other tasks, as well as alternatives to match the severity of your work, buckets are your excavator’s most versatile extension.
Couplers. Your excavator can switch tools quickly and without a crew thanks to these accessories. Your machine has the ability to switch between multiple tasks as you move around the job site.
Compaction. Compaction wheels and vibrating plates are useful for pipeline contractors for site preparation.
Rippers. A ripper may dislodge ice on the ground or even hard dirt. These come at different depths and have the ability to support couplers. They are frequently used for trenching and pipeline support.
Hammers. Pavement and building destruction typically involves the use of excavators. Because they can switch between the tool and a bucket using a coupler, hammers are more effective at this task.
ADVANCED OPTIONS FOR CHOOSING THE BEST EXCAVATOR VIEW ASSIGNS FOR OUR EXCAVATORS There are a few other features you should consider when buying an excavator. These might help you compare your top options and help you choose the greatest excavator by providing a checklist.
Some of the more important secondary characteristics include the following:
Included are anti-vandalism features. These options include the capability to lock specific areas and locations on the device, restricting both its use and the removal of anything. These are helpful if you have to leave your excavator at the job site. This shields you from liability if someone is harmed while breaking into your property while also safeguarding your tools and the workplace. power sources There are several power distribution methods available that may provide electricity for your attachments and boom. Some will also include a trick that will give your songs extra force. You can enhance performance in situations where your equipment is likely to be used thanks to these technologies. The controls are hydraulic. Newer excavators feature top-of-the-line hydraulics added in the cab to help with control. It makes the operation simpler and allows your operator to maneuver more precisely. The performance of your operator will also be improved by ergonomic setups. These elements are important to consider while deciding how to buy an excavator. Before making a purchase, get a hold of the excavator and test it out. Get some practical experience with a machine before you hand it any money. This stage is essential in selecting the model of excavator you intend to employ because every excavator is unique.
When assessing a possible excavator, look for the things listed below:
  • Pay attention to how it starts up. Instead of needing to wait for the battery to charge, it is preferred for the engine to start right away.
  • Check the area for smoke or leaks. Even though an AC system might leak water and engines can occasionally produce a small amount of smoke, you should always check to see whether these are normal working conditions for the equipment. Make sure any fluid leaks aren’t coming from a crucial system by looking for them.
  • Check the oil and other fluids in the machine to see how they are doing. These should be brand-new, but it might be a warning sign if someone is trying to sell you a machine that uses out-of-date hydraulic or other oils.
  • Examine the engine and cables right away by opening it up. You want everything to be clean and professional-looking, even the wiring. A lot of electrical tape could be a warning sign.
  • Play around with the tools and features. To verify slew ring wear, lifting the boom and manually rotating the body might be effective. When moving a boom with a swivel, check for excessive movement or obvious wear. Booms with swivels may accept a little wiggle in the swivel mechanism.
  • A thorough examination may help you avoid a lot of hassles, time, and money. The most significant benefit is that it helps you keep your staff safe, which is a need.
  • Choosing the Correct Excavator
  • It takes time to learn how to buy an excavator since you want to be sure you’re covering all of your business’s bases.
Because of its adaptability and value throughout the building cycle, an excavator is a great addition to your equipment. Excavators are always working in the construction yard, grading for your foundation, delivering supplies to your employees, and supplying electricity for demolition.
Your trusted partner since 1919, Interstate Heavy Equipment, can help you make a selection and specify your work requirements. Whether you’re purchasing new or old equipment, the capacity to complete the necessary tasks is the most important aspect to keep in mind. When making your choice, take into account available features, attachment support, space restrictions, and other aspects.

2023.05.30 16:48 Jonkampo52 IEP for Dyslexic ADHD Child help

My child has had an IEP for ADHD and Speech delay from age 4. he now has it for ADHD challenges and reading. He is 9 and just finishing up 2nd grade. he was recently revaluated by the neuropsychologists we saw for his original ADHD diagnosis when he was younger and she also diagnosed him with dyslexia, which I suspected. the kicker though is she is showing him far far more behind in reading than the school is reporting to us in his IEP goals. Up till recently we just took what the school suggested for his IEP without a ton of pushback. But I feel its time to step things up and the school is pushing back on what they can offer.
He is no slow outside of reading. he actually scored well above grade level for math in the testing done which was encouraging. Currently on his IEP they do tutoring for him once a week and some small group reading. Also making allowances for pullouts if he is having a bad day. there supposed to be reading all testing to him one on one, but its not in the IEP and they haven't been doing this from what I understand.
What are some realistic goals I can come to the school with we have a IEP meeting this Friday. thanks fully if this doesn't go satisfactory we can maybe look into a advocate for a follow up meeting before 3rd grade starts since we have time.

2023.05.30 16:47 izalutski Considerations for state backend?

Up until recently Digger has been completely “backendless” - the CLI running inside a Github Action could just talk to DynamoDB or S3 directly to acquire or release a lock. But adding Gitlab support forced us to add an optional orchestrator lambda to handle webhooks. There’s also a growing list of issues with a “need for backend” label that cannot be resolved unless there’s some kind of a backend component in place. So it’s pretty clear something needs to be done about it; but what exactly?
Ok, what does “backend” mean anyways? When we started Digger as an alternative to Terraform Cloud we had a fairly low-resolution picture of it: there’s this tool that runs terraform applyon the server; we’d make it easy to run in your CI so the server isn’t needed; hence backendless. But after a few months things no longer look that simple. There are at least 3 “flavors” of backend that serve different purposes:
Below are a few options we are considering - would love your input on this as none of them look like obvious winners; all come with different sets of tradeoffs.

A “helper CLI” to configure S3 backend

One way to help with state management would be to provide some kind of a “state backend manager” CLI. User can list / create / update / delete those backends in their cloud account with a shortcut command like digger backend list or digger backend new. The CLI would create the needed S3 bucket and DynamoDB table in user’s cloud account; the user then will directly configure backend "s3" { ... } in their terraform code.
The main benefit of this approach is that it builds upon the most widely used way of handling Terraform backend. It also exposes all of the internals - no magic, no black box.
The cons are that its not really simplifying anything other than initial setup. If you split your infrastructure in 3 layers to reduce blast radius, and have 3 environments (dev / staging / prod), that’s already 18 pieces to maintain (bucket + dynamoDB table). Then what about segregating accounts for dev / staging / prod? Multiple workspaces? Could just as well create those buckets by hand.
This option also rules out any kind of a simplified “managed state” offering similar to Terraform Cloud. It takes care of the state run-and-forget style, you just push terraform code and it works.

Remote backend service

Terraform also supports remote and http backend types. To simplify, we can view http as a subset of remote, so just going to call it “remote”. If we were to choose this route, Digger would provide an API to configure a remote backend like this:
terraform { backend "remote" { hostname = "" ... } } 
Such a service would be thin wrapper on top of S3 and Dynamo, but would hide the complexity and allow for a managed offering. You could still self-host it - Digger is open source after all - the service will just need access to S3 and DynamoDB (or equivalents in other cloud providers), injected as environment variables. It could be distributed as a docker image, or a serverless function (which way is better in your view btw?)
The main benefit of this approach is that it allows for both managed and self-hosted offering, so you can start quickly with the backend at and move to self-hosted later.
The main drawback though is quite major though: Hashicorp seems to be discouraging use of remote backends, replacing it with the cloud block instead which effectively locks you into Terraform Cloud. If support of remote backends is completely phased out in future versions of terraform, the remote backend service is of not much use.

Injected local backend

If no backend is configured, terraform CLI will use a local statefile as backend. We could use that behaviour as an integration point - Digger CI agent is a wrapper around terraform after all, so it could pull the right file from a remote store (managed or self-hosted), put it in the right directory inside the CI context, call terraform and sync the state back. This option is probably the trickiest to implement, but also the most flexible.
Terraform would effectively always work with a local backend (no need to configure anything!), but it will be persisted and versioned. A “helper CLI” for managing backends it can also be provided, similar to option 1; but it will talk to the orchestrator instead of dealing with buckets directly.
It’d have the same benefit as remote backend - allowing for both managed and self-hosted ways. But it won’t have the drawback of depending on soon-to-be-deprecated functionality.
The downside however is the risk of “state in flight”. Changes to the statefile could be lost before they are synced back to the remote store. For example some of the resources might be created, then the CI job is cancelled and the stored state never gets to reflect this. So some special care needs to be applied if we decide to go this route.


Well there cannot be a conclusion as such because we don’t really know which option to choose. This is more of an open question - which one should we go with? Could there be other options? We are also likely missing some important angles; any input would be super helpful. Please share your thoughts!

2023.05.30 16:47 throw-away-5736985 i can't stop blaming myself

i've always had one clear memory of the abuse and little fragments of other times all with the same abuser. however the more time i've spent reflecting back at my whole life i've started to realize there's other things that happened that i'm starting to think might have been abuse too. im just not sure if it really can be called abuse because i was older when it happened like 14-16. and my abuser only asked me to do things and never touched me. i tried to say no a few times but i eventually gave in and i felt uncomfortable with it but i went along with it. i look back now and think to myself i would never do something like that to a teenager that it's wrong and disgusting to manipulate someone like that but i still blame myself.
i can look back at my situation and clearly see i was groomed and cohered into doing things and allowing certain things to happen. but i just can't stop blaming myself. i remember how i felt as a teen and i remember just going along with it to just get it over with but i still blame myself because i did it. my abuser wasn't scary or mean to me they were an adult i had known and trusted for years they wouldn't have hurt me if i tried to leave so why didn't i?

I have a small lump under my gum superior to my left upper wisdom tooth kind of at the junction to the roof of my mouth. To look at you can’t see it but I can feel it. It moves with light pressure then pops into original position. It’s not painful generally but a little painful to touch. It is very very hard - almost bone like! But moves and doesn’t appear to be anchored to anything so not worried about anything sinister.
Any ideas? I have a dentist appointment but not for a couple weeks. No symptoms otherwise.

How to get purified water at home

3 Simple Ways to Purify Water

Clean drinking water is a fundamental necessity for maintaining good health and well-being. Unfortunately, not all water sources can be trusted to be safe for consumption. It is crucial to know how to purify questionable water sources to ensure that it is free from harmful bacteria, parasites, and other contaminants. In this essay, we will discuss three simple methods that can be used to purify water effectively.
Simple Ways to Purify Water
1/ The first and most basic method is boiling water.
Boiling water is a tried-and-true technique that has been used for centuries to make water safe to drink. To purify water through boiling, start by pouring the water into a pot and placing it on a heat source, such as an open fire or stove. Bring the water to a rolling boil and let it continue boiling for at least 10 minutes. This process effectively kills any bacteria or parasites that may be present in the water. Once the boiling is complete, remove the pot from the heat source and allow it to sit, settle, and cool before drinking. Boiling water is a simple yet effective way to ensure its safety.
2/ The second method involves using a water purifier.
Water purifiers are devices specifically designed to remove impurities and contaminants from water. These purifiers are commonly used in conjunction with tap water in the kitchen. To purify water using a water purifier, switch the device from the unfiltered to the filtered option. Then, pour the water into the pump or designated compartment of the purifier. It is important to check that the purifier is set to the filtered side and not the unfiltered one. The water will pass through the purifier, which contains various filters or membranes that trap and remove contaminants, providing you with clean and safe drinking water. Water purifiers are convenient and reliable tools for purifying water at home. Learn more: Water Purifier For Home
3/ Lastly, purchasing a water purifier with an inbuilt purifying system is another simple way to ensure the cleanliness of your water.
These purifiers act as a dispensary, supplying you with purified water on demand. They often come with advanced purification technologies such as activated carbon filters, reverse osmosis, or ultraviolet (UV) sterilization. These systems effectively remove impurities, chemicals, and microorganisms, providing you with clean and safe drinking water at any time. Investing in a water purifier with a built-in purifying system is a convenient and efficient way to have access to purified water in your home.
In addition to the methods mentioned above, it is worth noting that maintaining good overall health requires more than just clean water. A detox drink recipe can also contribute to a healthy digestive system. While the specific ingredients for a detox drink are not mentioned here, there are numerous recipes available that combine various fruits, vegetables, and herbs known for their detoxifying properties. These drinks can help flush out toxins from your body and support your overall well-being. However, it is important to note that a detox drink should not replace the need for clean and purified water.

How to Get Purified Water at Home - Unique Russian Method: Using Flora Cleaner

Water is a vital resource for all living organisms, playing a crucial role in maintaining our health and well-being. The quality of the water we consume has a direct impact on our overall health, making it imperative to find effective methods for purifying water. In this essay, we will introduce a unique Russian method for water purification using a product called Flora Cleaner, which provides a simple and affordable solution for obtaining purified water.
Using chemical and physical methods to clean tap water and pond water
-- by video Using chemical and physical methods to clean tap water and pond water
Water is not only essential for quenching our thirst but also plays a vital role in various bodily functions. It is present in every cell of our bodies, regulating body temperature, aiding digestion, and transporting nutrients. However, the water we encounter may contain impurities that can be harmful to our health. Therefore, it is necessary to take measures to purify it before consumption.
Flora Cleaner is a revolutionary product that offers an easy and convenient way to purify water at home. It requires only five drops of the cleaner per liter of water for normal use, and up to ten drops per liter for heavily contaminated water. The cleaner works by forming hydrogen bonds with impurities present in the water, causing them to clump together and form visible flakes. These flakes can then be easily removed, leaving behind clean and purified water.
While methods such as distillation and reverse osmosis are commonly used for water purification, they are not ideal for producing high-quality drinking water. These methods remove not only harmful contaminants but also essential minerals from the water. Natural spring water, for instance, contains a variety of beneficial minerals such as sodium, potassium, magnesium, calcium, chloride, sulfate, carbonate, and bicarbonate that are necessary for healthy body function. Flora Cleaner, on the other hand, preserves these vital minerals while effectively purifying the water.
When using Flora Cleaner, there are a few tips to keep in mind for optimal results. If you are using a container with a tap or spigot, such as a barrel or jug, it is best to let the purified water settle before pouring. This allows any remaining sediment to settle at the bottom, ensuring that you pour off only the clear and purified water. For bottles without taps or spigots, such as plastic bottles or glass jars with lids, gently pour off the top layer of purified water while leaving the sediment undisturbed at the bottom.

Furthermore, Flora Cleaner is particularly suitable for preparing water to dilute Bioflow Levitov, a natural health supplement that benefits from the presence of minerals and other natural properties in purified water. By using Flora Cleaner to purify your water, you can ensure that the water used in conjunction with Bioflow Levitov retains its natural mineral content and enhances the effectiveness of the supplement.

How to Get Purified Water at Home: Build Your Own Filter Using Materials Available in Nature

Sometimes we find ourselves in situations where a water filter is not readily available. However, with a little resourcefulness and some naturally available materials, you can create a makeshift water filter to purify water in an emergency or outdoor setting. In this essay, we will guide you through the process of building your own filter using materials found in nature.
To create your own water filter, you will need a few simple materials:
  1. An empty plastic water bottle, plastic bag, inner tube, or, if unavailable, cut-up tree bark can serve as a suitable substitute.
  2. Sand
  3. Pebbles
  4. Charcoal, which can be obtained from burnt pieces of wood from a campfire.
  5. Rope or a thin branch
  6. Pieces of cloth
  7. A knife
create a makeshift water filter by using naturally available materials.
Begin by cutting the lower end of the plastic bottle and inverting it. If you don't have a plastic bottle, cut up some tree bark and roll it into a cone or funnel shape. Secure the shape by tying it with a rope or using a thin branch. This will serve as the main body of your filter.
Now, layer the bottle or bark with the following materials in the following order: pebbles, cloth, sand, cloth, charcoal, cloth, sand, pebbles. The pebbles will act as the first filtration layer, removing larger particles from the water. The cloth layers will help filter out finer sediment and debris. The sand layer aids in further filtration, and the charcoal acts as a key component in purifying the water.
Charcoal, or activated carbon, has an incredible surface area and can effectively absorb harmful chemicals, such as volatile organic compounds and chlorine, as well as remove foul tastes and odors from water. However, it's important to note that charcoal does not kill bacteria and viruses. To ensure the water is safe for drinking, you will need to boil it after filtering.
Before passing the water through your self-built filter, it's recommended to pre-filter the water using a piece of cloth to remove any larger particles. Once pre-filtered, pour the water into the filter and allow it to pass through the various layers. The charcoal will absorb many impurities, making the water safer to consume.
It's important to practice building and using such filters during camping trips or outdoor excursions to familiarize yourself with the process. This way, you can ensure you have the necessary skills to create a filter in emergency situations.

2023.05.30 16:45 autotldr Confidential EU report warns about ‘drastic acceleration’ of Israeli pressure on Jerusalem: European diplomats are asking officials to ‘unequivocally’ show opposition to the Israeli government’s plans to alter the status and borders of the disputed city

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 66%. (I'm a bot)
Brussels and the members of the European Union must "Unequivocally" oppose the Israeli government's plans and legal initiatives to unilaterally alter the status and borders of Jerusalem, where Israel has "Drastically" accelerated pressure on the Palestinian population in the last year, according to a confidential report seen by EL PAÍS and delivered to the EU's External Action service by the diplomatic representatives in East Jerusalem and Ramallah of nearly all of the EU's member states, plus the EU delegate.
In their latest annual report on the disputed city, the European heads of mission to the Palestinian Authority warn that the events of 2022 "Highlighted the growing fragility of the Palestinian presence in Jerusalem, the exacerbation of the socioeconomic conditions of the Palestinians, and the need for their protection." The report underscores their "Separation from the political, social and economic life of the city," the demolition of homes, the construction of new housing in settlements and the plans to create new ones in the eastern part of the city, which Israel seized in the 1967 Six-Day War and subsequently annexed.
All except Budapest and Prague The report sent to the EUAA is supported by 21 of the 23 member states with diplomatic representation in East Jerusalem or Ramallah.
In 2021 Prague opened a branch of its Tel Aviv embassy in Jerusalem, and every few months information resurfaces, from anonymous sources, that Hungarian Prime Minister Viktor Orbán is preparing to become the first EU country to move its embassy to Jerusalem.
The report insists on the importance that the location of the EU's diplomatic missions should be consistent with United Nations Resolution 478, which condemned the annexation of East Jerusalem in 1980 and the declaration of the city as the "Unified" capital of Israel.
It additionally warns about the use by Israeli authorities and settler groups of archaeology and tourism to "Strengthen the Jewish and Biblical-inspired narrative about Jerusalem." This is the case of the City of David, in the Palestinian neighborhood of Silwan, at the foot of the walled citadel, which is in the hands of the Israeli Nature and Parks Authority but run by an ultra-nationalist foundation.
