2023.05.30 17:10 Magno23 Tried to find out if old accounts are cursed

I’ve been playing this game on and off every year since 2013. I have never packed a card worth more than 600k in ten years but my friends who recently joined all got players worth multiple millions each at least once. I always felt like it was weird that everyone around me was lucky but I would never get good rewards. It always felt to me that their luck was due to them being new players that need to be enticed to play, whereas I’ve been here for years consistently.
I decided to make a new account and buy an ea play sub for 4 bucks to test my theory. I go in FUT, do the base objectives and sbcs, get some gold cards here and there. I then decide to open the Ligue 1 tots starter pack for 100 Fifa points. I see the moments frame and skip instantly thinking its Sissoko. It’s Renato Sanches, 2.7 million just like that. Not one game played, 30 minutes of SBCs and one pack later, this new account is worth twice my main team that I played all year every year.
I can’t say for certain that it’s not just dumb luck, but it’s really weird.

2023.05.30 17:08 Solid-Cranberry-4035 Unleashing the Hybrid Cloud AI Revolution: Nvidia's DGX, IBM's Ansible, and the Perfect Storm

Not financial advice!
Nvidia's recent product announcements may provide valuable clues about the future of AI and which companies are best positioned for the value AI will unlock. I'm not personally interested in buying NVDA at current prices, as its price seems to be close to at least somewhat re-rated to market expectations. We're early in the game here de-gens and there might be other opportunities worth exploring that are flying under the radar. It' this regard’s opinion that reading between the lines of Nvidia's new product roadmap, can uncover potential AI benefits that haven't yet been fully reflected in the stock prices of other companies.
So… Nvidia has dropped a big one with its new DGX AI platform. If you're into the tech scene, you know Nvidia is a man amongst boys in the AI space. This DGX thing? It's a beast. Imagine a supercharged AI playground, but it's not just playing around - it's working, and working damn hard.
It's gonna be huge for our cloud bros - Amazon's AWS, Microsoft's Azure, Google Cloud, IBM, all of 'em. They'll be drooling all over this DGX platform. Why? It's like an AI power-up. Whoever taps into this beast will have their AI game leveled up big time.
But here's where the fun starts. This DGX tech isn't just good for any cloud - it's perfect for the hybrid cloud approach. That's where you mix up your on-premises servers (that's tech talk for the old-school, actual physical stuff) with public cloud services. This hybrid stuff is a big deal for AI because it gives you flexibility, security, and the raw horsepower you need to run high-powered AI applications. And guess who's the hybrid cloud champ? It's our old friend IBM, who's been pushing the hybrid cloud way harder than anyone else.
And how does IBM do it? Enter Ansible. This thing is like the magic wand for setting up and managing hybrid cloud stuff. It's a massive hit with the tech geeks because it's like a cheat code for making complex stuff simple. Ansible lets you stand up new hybrid cloud AI products and services like you're flipping pancakes.
Now, Ansible's part of IBM's tool kit, thanks to their acquisition of Red Hat a while back. IBM + Ansible + hybrid cloud is like the dream team for leveraging Nvidia's DGX platform. While all the cloud providers are gonna want a piece of the DGX pie, IBM is sitting pretty with their hybrid cloud focus and their Ansible magic.
Bottom line: Nvidia's DGX platform is throwing down the gauntlet in the AI game, and it's shouting "hybrid cloud or bust!" IBM's sitting in the sweet spot with Ansible and their hybrid cloud game.
IBM’s share value has been mostly stagnant over the past few months. No AI respect! No AI respect here at all I tell ya! When the next year or two’s quarterly numbers come in, the markets will have to take notice. JMO

2023.05.30 17:08 Greeneyesdontlie85 Prepared foods

I was thinking of buying some prepared foods from the grocery store this week, to try and get better at eating more consistently and adding in ready to eat vegetables and not letting them rot in the fridge. I saw a post in here that other people do this, but I’m just curious as to how long the food is good for? They sel grilled chicken breasts, salmon, roasted vegetables and I was thinking a fruit tray.

2023.05.30 17:08 strugglebus1914 I feel my husband should ask BM for some extra money for us to take the kids while she goes to Mexico.

My step kids 11&8 are staying with us for two weeks while BM goes on vacation with her boyfriend. She is missing SD11 elementary school graduation and it’s making me so mad bc she missed her kindergarten graduation to go to a rave festival. They will be with us during the last week of school so I have to drive them to school as well as driving my husband to work. It’s a half hour drive to my husbands work and their school and we already spend hundreds in gas a month and taking them to school is even more. I’m also on food stamps and we only get it for me and my husband (BM lies to DSHS to get food stamps for the kids so we can’t claim them) and with the regular routine me and my husband already skip meals so we have more food for when they come over. I feel like asking her for 100$ just to cover the extra gas and food isn’t unreasonable. Especially since she waited to tell us until a few weeks before that she was leaving and had the kids tell us that we were taking them, didn’t even ask.BM just baby trapped her boyfriend who is very wealthy and they live with practically no expenses bc they live with his dad. She doesn’t buy or do anything for the kids so it isn’t like she doesn’t have 100 to spare for the kids. If I was healthy enough to work and make things comfortable I would but I can’t and I have a toddler (who I get WIC for but it’s just baby food so I can’t exactly buy everyone food with that like I can food stamps) I just don’t understand what the harm is in asking via text so we have a record of her saying no, or on the off chance she says yes we can hold her to her word when she leaves. This woman has never taken her kids on her trips that she goes on. She even went to disney land without them and told them she wouldn’t ever take them. She fights letting my husband see them, even threatening to lie to the police, but when she wants to go rave or go to Mexico or just abandon them for months(which she did when she was living in her car with her ex) she just expects us to drop everything and cater to that, which of course we do bc we love the kids and if they stayed with her family they’d be abused per usual. She is a HCBM and she drives me nuts. She also refused to give me the phone numbers of the kids friends parents to invite them to a graduation party for SD11 that my mom and I are doing. I had to just print invitations with my number on them hoping she didn’t tell the parents to say no. This is all bull shit. I wish my husband would take her to court already and end her power trip. She’s a neglectful, abusive mother and these kids don’t deserve it. They deserve to be home with us. I’m sick of digging their over grown nails out of their fingers and toes bc she doesn’t help them clip them. Sick of emergency rooms and walk in clinics bc they haven’t been to the doctor in years. I’m sick of them coming over with mats in their hair and stinking to high heaven bc they haven’t showered since the last time they were here. I’m sick of the behavior problems bc of her. I’m sick of all of it I just wish we had them so they had a good stable home instead of bouncing around BM family’s houses being abandoned. I know we aren’t perfect but we are a hell of a lot better than her.
This morphed into a rant so I guess I’m done.

2023.05.30 17:04 nyx_xy Title Issues

Bought my brand new Altima at Sid Dillion. Car came from out of state. Tried to license it and for some reason I need the title? You don’t get the title until you pay it off, for one. I was then told that “it needs to be mailed to the DMV” or something like that? Title clerk never answers her phone and I got the car over a month ago. I’m not going to get pulled over every single time. Any number or place I can call here in Lincoln?

2023.05.30 17:03 Mewtwopsychic Since everyone compares themselves to finance here

Let's compare 3 different areas which are most realistically possible for an accountant to get into and see which one is the best.
1) Core accounting, ie preparing the statements, making calculations, posting journal entries etc. Basically any role in making the financials from scratch. Doesn't have to be the entire financials but anything that makes you calculate numbers that go in.
2) External Reporting, ie receiving finished financial statements but making them presentable to stakeholders. Adding commentary about numbers and being able to explain basically why some numbers went up or down.
3) FP&A. This is a finance role which an accountant can reasonably achieve without too much hassle. As long as you have some finance certification and are able to impress the interviewer, you will be able to get in.
I am not throwing in auditing in here because auditors have an eractic schedule due to various companies having various requirements.
Which job is the most chill, which one is most stressful and which one pays the most?

2023.05.30 17:02 ZachTheLitchKing [CW] Smash 'Em Up Sunday - The Nook

Original Prompt

The Nook
The Book Nook was a small shop on the outskirts of Amsterdam, in between a cupcake bakery called Sweet Eats, and a broadly Asian grocery store that seemed to primarily sell South Korean and Japanese fare. She owned The Book Nook and rented the building it was in. The first floor was her shop and the second floor was her apartment. They were little, but they were hers.
Her morning started like most others; rolling out of bed with a thick, downy blanket wrapped around her shoulders and making a beeline for the kitchenette. She warmed her hands over the stove while waiting for the water and milk to boil. Once done she mixed in the shredded bits of chocolate and watched them melt. Olivia stirred the mixture until it was nice and thick then poured it all into a mug and, while it cooled, added a couple of marshmallows.
The rest of her morning was accompanied by the hot cocoa in hand. She washed up, got dressed, checked her e-mail, paid a couple of bills, transferred some money between various cards to keep everything in the black, and then went downstairs to open up her store. There were a couple of regulars she looked forward to seeing almost every day, people with a passion for classics and who always wanted to chat about one book or another.
There were regulars she did not look forward to seeing; those with numerous books from friends and family that they tried to offload on her for a profit. Olivia was more than happy to pay half-decent money for a good book in okay condition, but these people tended to try and take advantage and so she usually underwhelmed them. The last thing she wanted was to give a guy five bucks for his daughter's favorite storybook so that he could go buy a beer.
The best part of the week for her was when Susan, the school teacher from a few blocks over, brought her first-grade class to the shop to look around. She loved to talk and every word she said was interesting. The primary school was grossly underfunded and Olivia had worked with Susan to get these field trips orchestrated. The children could use The Book Nook as a replacement for their school library whenever they wanted, so long as they remembered their 'library card'; a slip of paper she had written their name on, put some clip art of their favorite items, and laminated.
It had been Olivia's idea to include that little lesson in responsibility.
Today was not a field trip day. It was also payday for most businesses, so none of the sellers were coming in for a few extra bucks. The overcast sky was a prelude to rain and Olivia suspected she would have little to no company today, which was fine by her. She loved sitting down by the window and listening to the rain.
The door opened and a man with broad shoulders and a military haircut stepped in. Olivia checked the calendar by her chair and sighed.
"The first Friday of the quarter already, Simon?" she asked as she finished her hot cocoa and stood up.
"The general's offer still stands," Simon said, wringing his hands together nervously. The look of concern on his face was ever-present whenever he visited Olivia, and it stung. She knew why he was worried; despite her new life, Olivia's past was a terrifying one. The things she had done in the name of protecting the city would scare even the bravest of men, and the weight of it had almost crushed her. Olivia did not want people to be afraid of her.
"Tell him I appreciate it," she said, "But I am not coming back. I'm retired and I'm happy here. I'd be more happy if he stopped sending you to badger me. Remind him about the Incursion; it ended because of me." Try as she might, Olivia could not keep some edge out of her tone and the man flinched at her words.
"Yes ma'am," he said, backing away to the door. He bumped into someone on the way out and apologized before hurrying away. The woman he had bumped into - an elderly one named Agatha - adjusted her glasses and slipped in the door.
"He was in a hurry," she said, "Is everything alright?"
"Everything's fine, Aggie," Olivia said with a warm smile. It was nice to be looked at by someone who didn't know Olivia was once a Hunter. "What are you looking for today?"

2023.05.30 17:02 ZachTheLitchKing [CW] Smash 'Em Up Sunday - The Petty Crusade

Original Prompt

The Petty Crusade
Port Adriel. One of the scummiest cities in the Empire. When the humans took it back in the war it had been a crown jewel along the coast. Now? Now it was a vacation destination for workaholic paladins like Aisling. One of the most decorated members of The Order, Aisling the Bright chose to use her annual week of R&R to assist the city guard of Port Adriel. Helping them knock some petty crimes off of their books gave her the feeling of doing good that she needed, and made their numbers look better.
Today she was after a young man named Liam who was accused of selling faulty or fake enchanted items. If he was doing so, then he was an idiot for naming his shop Liam's Discount & Refurbished Enchantment Emporium. Aisling had to admit that the painting of a rusted sword glowing with a magic aura had a sort of eye-catching charm, but if crooks could get away because of good marketing then the city would look nicer and feel worse.
The tiefling stepped inside and glanced around as the bell over the door rang. There were many weapons, and none of them were secured by any chains or behind glass. She saw a couple of very large pistols that looked to be far too heavy to hold in one hand. A Giant gunslinger, maybe? she thought as she hefted one. It was even heavier than it looked to be and her arm trembled just trying to lift.
"Please don't touch the merchandise," a voice said from her left. Aisling saw a man enter the room; tall and broad-shouldered with a rotund belly, he had a familiar look to his face that instantly flashed the paladin back to the rebellion a few years ago. A young man, tall and fair and much more fit, had led an uprising after his grandfather was executed. Aisling did not know the politics of the situation, only that the old man had been an upstart some years before. She had no opinion on the execution, but the rebellion? Well, it had ended because of her.
"Liam, I take it?" Aisling asked, setting the gun back down and walking over to the counter, "By the gods you're tall."
"Yeah, I get-" Liam finally looked up from the clipboard he had been paying attention to and his eyes darkened. He recognized her as much as she recognized him.
"Listen here, cupcake," Aisling said, leaning on the counter with one armored hand while the other relaxed on the hilt of her sword, "Here's how it's going to go. You're gonna put down that clipboard, step around the counter, and get on your knees. You're gonna put your hands behind your head. I'm gonna cuff you. Then we'll take a nice walk out to my carriage where you'll get inside and no one will see this, so you can save face or whatever matters to your kind. I don't know, and I don't care. Then I'm gonna take you down to the station and hand you over to the city guard." She loved to talk and every word she said was interesting.
"But I-"
"Bah, bah, bah," the cocky tiefling shook her finger, "It doesn't matter, and I don't care. You stand accused, and I'm just here to bring you in. If you're innocent they'll let you go and if not, I just made their jobs easier. Despite the, uh...weight you've gained in the last few years you still look like a guy who can give a few underpaid guards a run for their-"
As soon as Aisling said 'run' Liam did exactly that. He turned and booked it into the back of the shop. Aisling sighed and touched a crest on her armor. It instantly doffed; melting away in the front so she could jump out, the great sword she wielded firm in her grip. If the fat, failed rebel wanted to run, Aisling was more than happy to give chase. It would be fun.
This was a vacation, after all.

2023.05.30 17:01 canwenotandsaywedid Unpopular Opinion

I have been a long time viewer of DD and I’ve watched the posts on both DD subreddits as well. While I sometimes agree with things said here, I believe I may be the minority opinion of many of the statements made here. 1. I do not believe Alicia is a liar. I see people say she lies all the time about random things, but I watch everything and I just don’t buy that accusation. To me she seems almost brutally honest, sometimes to the embarrassment of herself or others. And I think she has severe mom-brain and that comes of as “lies” once in a while. 2. I think she is naive about a lot of woke things, but not maliciously. I don’t think she would ever intentionally be offensive or hurtful. She seems like a happy empathetic person who is just older and naive. 3. I think that she is set in her way but also has listened to quite a bit of feedback since she has for sure made some positive changes to her content. 4. I do not think she forces the kids to do videos, and I know there’s the argument of consent and how they can’t truly consent to it, but I think some people don’t believe it’s a big deal and some people do and she is one of the former. I think that she honestly believes the kids are willing participants, and if you aren’t against kids being in videos at all, you’d side with her. If you are against it, then you’d never be able to view her channel positively—and there’s nothing wrong with that! 5. I think she genuinely loves every one of those kids, I think she adores every aspect of being a mom, and I think she works hard for them. She spoils them but rarely goes out and spends tons of money on herself… it’s all for them. Her love language seems to be acts of service and gift giving. Maybe that’s just who she is? 6. I think her kids are happy. Even Z.

2023.05.30 17:01 YourBrilliantLayer A Comprehensive Guide to Hyperpigmentation and How to Treat it

Hey-Oh! So, I see some form of this question multiple times per day in various skin and personal care subs: How do I deal with my hyperpigmentation? I also asked myself this question a few years ago. See, I'm prone to freckles and a little melasma and I set out to figure out a way to solve it with years of research, trial and error, testing, talking to dermatologists and professionals, and scouring every medical article I could get my hands on. I wanted to share my findings and research since this is a common concern, especially among people in their 30s. This started as a small post about my routine and ballooned into a massive book about hyperpigmentation. I hope it's helpful!
This is going to get long because I wanted to cover everything re:hyperpigmentation. But for your reading pleasure and ease, I have divided this post up so you can get whatever information you need:
Table of Contents
  1. Types of Hyperpigmentation
  2. What Causes Hyperpigmentation?
  3. How To Treat Hyperpigmentation Part 1: The Ingredients
  4. How to Treat Hyperpigmentation Part 2: The Routine and Recommendations
  5. Body Hyperpigmentation
  6. Nuclear Options
Let's get to it!

Types of Hyperpigmentation

Hyperpigmentation refers to excess melanin production in the skin, but it can actually take a couple different forms. Knowing the type of hyperpigmentation you're experiencing is key to understanding if and how it can be treated.
Freckles: Freckles are incredibly common, especially for people with lighter skin tones. They are small, brown or reddish-brown dots often clustered on the skin. They develop on the surface and are not raised bumps. Freckles can appear anywhere on the body but are common on the face. Freckles are permanent, but the color, contrast and severity can vary and be tempered.
Melasma: Melasma appears as dark patches or splotches around the face, though usually found on the forehead, upper lip, and high on the cheeks. Melasma forms deeper in the skin and appears more amorphous than freckles, moles, or age spots. It can create a “muddy” appearance and is very common among pregnant and postpartum women due to hormonal factors. But it can literally happen to anyone and anywhere on the body.
Post-Inflammatory Hyperpigmentation (PIH): Post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH) occurs when damaged skin forms melanin during the healing process leaving dark spots. This is common after acne, injuries, eczema, burns, and other trauma to the skin. Exposure to UV rays during healing can make PIH worse. Post-inflammatory erythema (PIE) is similar, but leaves pink or red marks on the skin as a result of damage to the capillaries from injury or inflammation. Basically, when skin is compromised by injury, as part of the immune response cells will begin to generate melanin in an attempt to prevent further damage from UV exposure, so what will happen is the wound/legion/blemish will heal but the pigmented skin remains.
Age Spots: This is kind of a forgotten form of hyperpigmentation. Sun spots, also referred to as liver spots, and solar lentigines are large spots/patches of dark skin with distinct borders. They vary in color from light brown to almost black. They develop on the surface of the skin usually later in life, but reflect damage that often occurred from improper sun protection at a younger age. They can appear on the face, neck, chest, hands, and arms, usually on areas that had UV exposure. For many people, they can begin to appear in your 30s or 40s.

What Causes Hyperpigmentation?

There are a number of factors that can contribute to the formation of hyperpigmentation. Generally, it forms as the result of a combination of genetic and environmental influences. Everyone is unique, but these are some of the most common causes of hyperpigmentation and dark spots:
Genetics can play a role in the development of hyperpigmentation and dark spots in several ways:
Sun (UV) Exposure. In addition to genetic determination of melanin production, UV exposure is the leading environmental cause of hyperpigmentation and the formation of dark spots. Melanin is the pigment that provides color to our skin, hair, and eyes. It acts as a natural sunscreen (but don't treat it like natural sunscreen!!! This isn't the point of the exercise), absorbing UV radiation to protect the skin from damage.
When the skin is exposed to UV radiation, the melanocytes (cells that produce melanin) in the skin go into overdrive, producing more melanin to protect the skin from further damage. This increased melanin production can result in dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation on the skin.
Hormones. In addition to genetic determination of melanin production, hormones and hormonal sensitivity is a leading internal cause of hyperpigmentation and the formation of dark spots.
One of the most well-known examples of hormonal hyperpigmentation is melasma, a condition characterized by dark, amorphous patches on the face, particularly on the cheeks, forehead, nose, and upper lip. Melasma is often associated with hormonal changes, such as those that occur during pregnancy, hormonal therapy, or birth control pill use. The hormonal changes can stimulate an increase in melanin production, resulting in dark spots or areas of hyperpigmentation. This can happen irrespective of UV exposure, though the sun does exacerbate it.
Hormones can also affect melanin production by altering the skin's metabolism and pigmentation pathways. For example, high levels of cortisol, a hormone produced by the adrenal glands during stress, can trigger an increase in melanin production, resulting in hyperpigmentation.
Inflammation, Injury & Trauma to the skin can result in hyperpigmentation by triggering an increase in melanin production. When the skin is inflamed or injured, it triggers a response from the body's immune system, which can stimulate an increase in melanin production as a protective measure.
For example, acne breakouts or other skin injuries can result in post-inflammatory hyperpigmentation (PIH), which is characterized by dark spots or areas of discoloration on the skin. The dark spots are a result of an increase in melanin production in the affected area, which occurs in response to the inflammation or injury. In addition to acne and other skin injuries, other conditions that can result in PIH include eczema, psoriasis, and insect bites.
Medication Side Effects. Certain medications can cause hyperpigmentation on the skin. Medications that can cause hyperpigmentation include:
If using these medications is necessary for your livelihood, it is not recommended to stop their use without the recommendation of your doctor.

How To Treat Hyperpigmentation Part 1: The Ingredients

When looking for skin care products to treat and prevent hyperpigmentation and dark spots, it's important to look for ingredients that can help encourage cell turnover, curb melanin production, and block harmful UV rays. A lot of these things overlap with treatments for other conditions like acne and general anti-aging, but I've noted ones that specifically work on the mechanisms controlling melanin production. Now, this is an extensive list, but I know it doesn't have everything. I've included the ingredients that had the most compelling evidence and/or worked the best for me or people at my practice. But it's also not necessarily a shopping list. You don't have to have all of these things to treat hyperpigmentation, but I'll get to that in the routine portion. This is more to be used as a tool that can help you diversify your routine if you find one ingredient or another doesn't work for you. And it can help you determine if a product targets hyperpigmentation based on its ingredients. There's lot's of options. Some of the key ingredients to look for include:
Retinoids that increases cell turnover. Retinoids like tretinoin, adapalene, retinol et al, can help treat hyperpigmentation by promoting the turnover of skin cells and increasing cell growth, which can help fade dark spots and improve overall skin tone by replacing pigmented skin cells at the surface. While retinoids are extremely effective, they do have some caveats. First, they can be sensitizing to a lot of users, but this can be tempered by using different form functions, different application methods, or different concentrations. Second, because it's constantly turning over skin exposing delicate new skin cells to the elements, it can actually worsen hyperpigmentation if you're not vigilant about sun protection and avoidance. Tretinoin and other retinoids are firewalled behind a prescription in some countries and may be more difficult to obtain. But retinol/al is available in OTC forms.
SPF represents a class of many ingredients designed to protect the skin from UV rays and the damage that occurs from exposure. UV exposure is one of the biggest causes of fine hyperpigmentation and wrinkles so adequate protection is essential. I know I'm not winning any science awards for this declaration, but a lot of people who struggle with hyperpigmentation aren't adequately protecting themselves from the sun. But you also have to be kind of realistic. Even with perfect protection and avoidance, sometimes your hyperpigmentation will still flare. This happens during the summer for a lot of people and something even I grapple with. The key is to do your best and SPF actually works well with numerous other ingredients (like the ones listed below) to help solve that problem.
Arbutin is a Tyrosinase Inhibitor that blocks melanin production. Arbutin, or the synthesized version called alpha arbutin, is a favorite brightening ingredient because it's a slow-release derivative of hydroquinone that inhibits melanin production. This results in both healing and prevention of dark spots, especially when paired with topical acids. It metabolizes on the skin into hydroquinone which is super effective for hyperpigmentation while being a less controversial and hard-to-come-by ingredient than pure hydroquinone. More on hydroquinone in part 6.
Tranexamic acid is another Tyrosinase Inhibitor. This was first used in wound care and it was found to have profound effects on hyperpigmentation. Although it's an acid, it's not a chemical exfoliant, kinda like how hyaluronic acid is not a chemical exfoliant. The exact mechanism by which tranexamic acid works to reduce hyperpigmentation is not fully understood, but it is believed to work by reducing inflammation by blocking plasmin which contributes to melanin production when unchecked. It is particularly effective in treating melasma and one of my personal favorite ingredients.
Kojic Acid is another Tyrosinase Inhibitor. Kojic acid is a natural skin brightener that is derived from various fungi. Kojic acid can also help to exfoliate because it's a slight chemical exfoliant, which can remove dead skin cells that contribute to hyperpigmentation and improve overall appearance. But it does both things: block melanin production and turn skin cells over.
Azelaic Acid has a lot of things going for it that can help with hyperpigmentation. It's an anti-inflammatory and antiseptic that disrupts melanin production. Azelaic acid works by inhibiting the production of melanin in the skin like those other tyrosinase inhibitors. In addition, azelaic acid also has anti-inflammatory and antibacterial properties, which help to improve the overall health and appearance of the skin by reducing melanin production as a result of injury or inflammation. It's also an anti-acne ingredient that can address the root cause of PIH by reducing acne on the skin. It's pretty awesome and available in OTC and prescription strengths.
Niacinamide is another one that directly and indirectly addresses hyperpigmentation. It's a skin soother that decreases inflammation and it naturally reduces sebum production which can curb acne which can curb PIH. It actually took me a little while to figure out that this was another solid hyperpigmentation treatment for these reasons because I used to look at it as being more of an acne treatment. Niacinamide is a form of vitamin B3 that works by inhibiting the transfer of pigment within the skin, which can help to reduce the appearance of dark spots and uneven skin tone. So while it doesn't block tyrosinase, it prevents transfer of pigmented skin cells to the surface.
Vitamin C aka L-ascorbic acid is an antioxidant that fights free radical damage. It treats and prevents hyperpigmentation in three ways. First, it reduces free radical damage from UV exposure which helps increase the effectiveness of SPF when worn together. Second, it is also a tyrosinase inhibitor that blocks melanin production. And finally, vitamin C encourages skin cell turnover. The key is finding a nice stable version of it.
Glycolic and Lactic Acid. Since this list is getting long I am going to group these together. Glycolic Acid is a water-soluble alpha hydroxy acid that penetrates into the pores to treat pigmentation by providing general exfoliation and resurfacing of the skin. The result is improvements in dark spots, texture and other signs of aging. Lactic Acid is also an AHA but with a slightly larger molecular size than glycolic acid so it doesn't penetrate as deep and acts more as a surface exfoliant. As a result it provides more gentle exfoliation to buff away surface pigmentation with an added benefit of acting as a humectant to seal moisture into the skin.
Licorice Extract is a plant extract that inhibits melanin production. Licorice root extract contains a compound called glabridin, which has been shown to have skin brightening effects as, you guessed it, a tyrosinase inhibitor. In addition, licorice root extract also has anti-inflammatory properties, which can help to reduce redness and inflammation associated with hyperpigmentation. I'm seeing more and more of this pop up in skin care.
Soy Proteins are another plant extract that inhibits melanin production. They contain compounds known as isoflavones, which have been shown to help reduce the amount of melanin produced by melanocytes in the skin. Additionally, soy proteins have antioxidant properties that can help to protect the skin from damage caused by free radicals, which can contribute to hyperpigmentation.

How To Treat Hyperpigmentation Part 2: The Routine and Recommendations

This is adapted from numerous comments, posts and DMs I've written on the topic and also comprises a large portion of my own personal routine and routines we recommend to patients. This is a generalist routine meaning it targets all the forms of hyperpigmentation I've mentioned; freckles, melasma, PIH, and age spots though it can be tweaked to address these individually more specifically. This is really my jumping off point for people to get a good idea of what they can achieve as a baseline with OTC ingredients before fine tuning or enlisting the help of a dermatologist. For a lot of people, this is enough to fully resolve, but even if it gets you part of the way there, this should give you a good idea of reactivity.
A few caveats:
Alright, let's get to it!
AM routine -- The Goal: Heal, Protect, and Prevent. In order of application following a lukewarm water rinse:
The combo of C+AZ+AA+SPF is an absolute powerhouse for healing existing hyperpigmentation and preventing new hyperpigmentation from forming. It makes your SPF more effective, it inhibits the production of melanin from UV exposure (not your natural melanin production though), and it speeds cell turnover with dual antioxidant action and gentle chemical exfoliation. The result is brighter skin in a few months of consistent use.
For Azelaic Acid, this is the ingredient for serious treatment. It's considered one of the most effective ways to reverse melasma aka serious hyperpigmentation short of hydroquinone -- which is both controversial and hard to get. It brings a little bit of exfoliation to the table in addition to inhibiting UV melanin production, but it also has a slight antiseptic property which can help with acne. Paula's choice Azelaic Acid Booster is the only one I've really tried after sampling the Ordinary's in-store and not liking the texture. I get about 6 months out of a tube and a little bit goes a long way.
For Alpha Arbutin, the Ordinary's formulation is pretty solid. I prefer the Ordinary's AA 2% + HA as opposed to their AA 2% + Ascorbic Acid 8% as I don't believe the quality and stability of their Ascorbic Acid (Vitamin C) is great. That's why I opt for a separate Vitamin C serum step. But the AA + HA also has a little bit of lactic acid in it which provides some gentle exfoliation and encourages AA deeper into the skin where it's more effective. Lactic acid is mild enough that it's safe for use in a morning routine, but you still want to protect with SPF. There are a couple AA products floating around but I think TO's product is probably the best, most straightforward one. Alpha Arbutin metabolizes into hydroquinone on the skin so is basically one of the best OTC pigment correctors you can get.
For Vitamin C, the gold standard really is Skinceuticals CE Ferulic. This is stupid expensive though so I’m going to suggest Timeless Vitamin C. I like that it comes in an airless pump that prevents oxidation over time. Vitamin C is an antioxidant that increases the rate of skin cell turnover bringing forward new, skin cells while simultaneously improving the effects of SPF. It's a great foundation for a fix.
These ingredients can be layered on one right after the other then topped with your moisturizer (I like a basic one like cetaphil daily lotion), then topped with your SPF. The SPF I would recommend is Canmake UV mermaid gel in clear as this will not leave a white cast on your skin and it’s generally a very elegant SPF. It's SPF 50 which means it gives really good protection, but there are numerous SPFs you can try. I personally like anything from La Roche Posay, any Neutrogena SPF that's not formulated with ethylhexylglycerin, Supergoop Unseen Sunscreen, Biore Aqua Rich (another Japanese brand), Trader Joe's SPF if you can get your hands on it, and EltaMD.
Of all the products I’ve tried that could act as a stand-in for vitamin c, azelaic acid, and alpha arbutin, there’s one Japanese serum from Hada Labo called “whitening lotion” which has had the biggest impact on my hyperpigmentation in a single product of anything I’ve tried. This might be a little too effective though, I actually find that it washed me out within the first 2 weeks of twice daily use, so now I only use it in the morning. And I’m not a fan of the translation… which is a direct but mistranslation. It’s not a bleaching lotion, it also relies on a form of vitamin C and tranexamic acid to brighten skin. But it's a really interesting to try if you wanted a simplified morning routine in which case I would apply this, then your moisturizer, then your SPF.
PM routine -- The Goal: Renew and Reveal. In order of application:
To cleanse, I have a really basic recommendation that will remove your SPF, makeup, and any grime/sebum from your day. Start with Cetaphil gentle cleanser. This is a gentle, hydrating cleanser that will break up your SPF really effectively. Massage in and rinse. Then apply a foaming cleanser, I recommend Cetaphil daily cleanser which foams. This will sweep away anything that’s left and give you a good foundation for the rest of your routine. While this doesn't directly help hyperpigmentation specifically, it's a critical step especially for people who are acne>PIH prone. It also gives you a nice clean slate to apply the rest of your skincare. I've tried dozens of cleansers but always come back to these two as good basic options.
For your Buffer this is an important step that can be done prior to using a chemical exfoliant or retinoid: applying an occlusive that will block the active from more sensitive skin. I recommend buffering around your eyes and nostrils with La Roche Posay Cicaplast balm because it kind of doubles as a nice eye cream, but this can also be done with basic vaseline or aquaphor for a more budget-friendly option.
For Tranexamic Acid, my holy grail TXA product, La Roche Posay Glycolic B5 is actually a multipurpose serum that combines ingredients to treat hyperpigmentation with chemical exfoliants. It contains two hyperpigmentation heavy hitters -- Tranexamic acid and Kojic Acid which are great for melasma -- and two exfoliants -- Glycolic Acid and Lipo-Hydroxy Acid (LHA) which is like fancy salicylic acid -- so it both reveals new skin cells that are less prone to pigmenting from UV exposure while sloughing away your old skin cells. You can use this 2 or 3 nights per week. On off nights, just cleanse and moisturize.
For a Retinoid if you can get prescription tretinoin, this is going to be the best bet. Your doctor will advise you on the concentration. More on that in part 6. It will help speed up the rate of cell turnover bringing new, unpigmented skin cells to the surface faster. Some other OTC options include differin (which is rated more for acne but uses the same mechanism for cell turnover so it's also effective in this use case) and retinols. Now, I haven't tried every retinol on the market but I have two that I stand by: SkinCeuticals retinol and L'Oreal retinol serum. The SkinCeuticals is, in my opinion, the closest to RX tretinoin in terms of efficacy, but it's a little pricey. The L'Oreal also does a really good job and is a little more affordable. It's currently my go-to OTC on the days I'm not using my RX retinoid tazarotene. You can use this 2 or 3 nights per week. On off nights, just cleanse and moisturize.
** My recommendations for tranexamic acid and retinoids CANNOT be used in the same night. You'll nuke your skin. And for most people, both aren't necessary, you can get away with using one or the other. If I had a preference, I would say use the TXA serum instead of a retinoid, but if you can build up a tolerance to using them both without damaging your barrier, they work really well together. So, proceed with caution. If you want to use both, use them on alternate nights and give yourself a night or two without either to let your skin recover. For me personally, I do retinoids on Sundays, and Wednesdays, chemical exfoliants on Mondays and Thursdays, and I let my skin rest (cleanse, moisturize, squalene oil) on Tuesdays, Fridays, and Saturdays.
On top of whichever active you choose, apply your moisturizer. You can use the same one you use in your morning routine, the Cetaphil daily lotion as it’s nice and light. I also like La Roche Posay Toleraine double repair for a ceramide-based cream alternative if you want something richer. You do not want to "slug" over actives. This advice gets mixed in a lot. Slugging refers to applying an occlusive layer over your skincare such as vaseline, aquaphor, oils like squalene oil, or healing balms like La Roche Posay Cicaplast balm. While this can be done on hydration nights, it should not be done on nights when you're using chemical exfoliants or retinoids as this may make them too effective causing irritation and breakouts.

Body Hyperpigmentation

Ok, I need everyone to be a grownup for two seconds. These products and methods (both from the prior section and this section) should NOT be used on your genitals. First, you can cause serious irritation or infection by applying active skincare to your genitals. Second, it's really not going to do anything to change the pigmentation of the skin there. The skin on your genitals is different than your body and facial skin and it pigments in different ways for different reasons so it's not going to respond to topicals the same way the rest of your body does. Don't even try it.
To be perfectly clear, these are the areas you should not be applying skincare: labia majora, labia minora, vaginal entrance or vagina, clitoral hood, perineum, anus, intergluteal cleft aka inside your butt crack, penis, or scrotum. And I say this as someone who chaffed the precipice of her "intergluteal cleft" in an unfortunate crunches-in-the-wrong-gym-shorts accident leaving me with some deeply incriminating hyperpigmentation and earning me the nickname "skid mark" from my ever loving boyfriend. It faded after a year but you can still send prayers.
These are areas you can apply skincare but do so with absolute caution and at your own risk: bikini line, mons pubis, inner thigh up to the groin fold, butt cheeks.
Ok, now that we've got the disclaimers out of the way, let's move forward. Hyperpigmentation can also occur on body skin for the same reason it appears on the face, but it can also be triggered by friction. And because body skin is different from facial skin, it requires a slightly different approach. This is my recommendation for both hyperpigmentation and KP (Keratosis pilaris) because they rely on the same mechanism for treatment: chemical exfoliation.
In the case of body hyperpigmentation, I recommend a two prong approach: a body wash in the shower and a topical treatment to be used after. Oh, and SPF again if there are areas that are exposed to the sun, and I have a holy grail SPF recommendation for this.
Now you may have noticed in my facial skin recommendation that I did not mention CeraVe as a treatment brand. I have posted numerous takedowns of CeraVe on other threads so I won't rehash them here suffice it to say that it's no longer a brand I can in good faith recommend since it's acquisition by L'Oreal. This is often the brand that's considered when treating KP on the body, but I don't believe their formulations and ingredient quality works for everyone.
For the body wash, I recommend Neutrogena body clear with Salicylic acid. This is an exfoliating body wash that will help clear away dead skin cells on the surface allowing new ones to come through. To be effective, you want it to sit on your skin for a little while. I recommend lathering it up and applying it after turning off your shower faucet and letting it sit for 2 or 3 minutes. This is when I like to knock out shower emails. Then rinse away.
On towel dried skin after your shower, apply AmLactin Bumps Be Gone. Again, this is formulated for KP but the reason I like it is because it contains lactic acid which will also give the assist on brightening hyperpigmented body skin. The wash and this should be effective, but you might also want to mix in a few drops of the alpha arbutin serum I recommended for your facial routine, maybe three drops per application area (each leg, each arm, chest, etc). I generally don't encourage facial products on the body because it's not an economical use for them, and also because body skin is a little more resilient and doesn't need skincare that's formulated for more sensitive facial skin. The AA serum from the Ordinary is very affordable however and is a good hyperpigmentation generalist.
Another one that I mentioned in the facial hyperpigmentation portion that can work well on the body is the Hada Labo whitening lotion. Again, this is formulated around tranexamic acid which is very effective for hyperpigmentation and a little bit if this stuff goes a long way. I buy it in bulk from Japanese Importers though it's also available on Amazon for a slightly higher price. If you find yourself in Asia, stock up on it. I use this specifically for fading tan lines that happen (even with diligent/neurotic SPF use) around my fitness watch and the straps of my workout tops that I run in.
You also want to wear SPF on areas that are exposed to the sun to prevent pigmentation from occurring. The one I absolutely love that’s not your 90’s banana boat is Aveeno Protect + Hydrate lotion with SPF 60. This is a great SPF for a lot of reasons: it finishes like a lotion instead of a sunscreen, it dries down totally clear, and it has a pleasant, slight sweet scent. On a scale of 1-10 with 1 being bare skin, 10 being banana boat slathered on by your mom in 1997, and regular body lotion being a 2, I give Aveeno Protect + Hydrate a 2.5 in terms of texture and feel-finish. I use it as my daily lotion on my neck, arms, shoulders, and chest. If you're more active you might need a heavier hitter here like a sport sunscreen.

Nuclear Options

In general, I recommend trying OTC topical solutions for any skin concern before heading down the in-office procedure route. Part of this is because you can usually put a good dent in what you're struggling with by using OTC topicals, making in-office procedures and RX treatments easier and more effective. Part of it is so you have a good maintenance routine in place to use after the fact to preserve the results of your in-office procedure which can sometimes be costly. Lastly, while some procedures can solve the immediate problem completely, topical skincare can be really effective at treating other adjacent conditions like redness, acne, and fine lines.
Side note: I haven't listed every possible compounded medication because there are a lot, and many compounded meds are formulated to tackle multiple issues like acne and hyperpigmentation. I also tend to favor single note skin care (aka, products with very few ingredients) as this allows you to combine or remove certain actives and gives you a better sense of reactivity.
For tougher-to-treat hyperpigmentation such as melasma, if your topical routine doesn't totally clear the problem in 6 to 8 months, a visit to the dermatologist might be helpful. Here are the heavier-hitting procedures and topicals that can go the extra mile after you've exhausted other options.
Medical Grade Peels: Medical grade chemical peels can be done by dermatologists. Trichloroacetic acid (TCA) or phenol peels may be done for cases of severe hyperpigmentation, but high concentration BHA or AHA peels are also commonly used. I do these twice a year. Because of the strength of the acids used, these must be done by a medical professional with careful followup.
***IPL Therapy and Laser Therapy may not work for everyone and in some cases may exacerbate hyperpigmentation so you really want to work with dermatologists with a lot of experience in treating cases similar to yours to determine if these interventions are appropriate for you.
IPL Treatment: Intense Pulsed Light (IPL) therapy can treat hyperpigmentation by targeting the melanin in the skin with a broad spectrum of light wavelengths, heating and breaking the melanin down. IPL is particularly effective for treating sun damage and age spots, as well as other forms of hyperpigmentation. The treatment is relatively non-invasive, with minimal downtime, making it a popular option. This is also a great treatment for the redness associated with enlarged blood vessels (often confused for broken capillaries) on the surface of the skin which can also appear alongside hyperpigmentation. There isn't any clinical evidence to support at-home IPL devices being effective in the same way. That doesn't mean it's not possible, it's just not studied enough to be certain. Most at-home IPL devices do not operate in effective wavelengths the way professional grade ones do.
Laser Therapy: Fractional and CO2 lasers can be used to treat a range of hyperpigmentation issues, including sun damage, age spots, and melasma. The treatment works by removing the top layers of skin, which contain the excess pigmentation, revealing fresh, healthy skin cells underneath. The lasers also stimulate the production of collagen, which helps to improve skin texture and reduce the appearance of fine lines and wrinkles.
Hydroquinone: This isn't an in-office procedure like the aforementioned treatments, but it is firewalled behind a prescription meaning you can only access hydroquinone in effective concentrations by working with a doctor. This is a somewhat new development at least in the US following some covid-era rejiggering of prescription clearances. HDQ is controversial because it's a skin bleaching agent which has some cultural implications in places where light skin is favored over natural pigmentation. HDQ technically works the same way other OTC tyrosinase inhibitors do (in fact arbutin actually metabolizes into HDQ when applied to the skin), pure HDQ happens to be the most powerful version of them. It lightens any skin it touches, not just hyperpigmented skin in higher concentrations which can make it tough to use. This effect isn't as profound in the other tyrosinase inhibitors I mentioned making them much easier to use over HDQ which, in high concentrations, must be dotted on the skin in only hyperpigmented areas. So HDQ is really reserved for intervention in extreme or OTC treatment-resistance cases.
Tretinoin and Prescription Retinoids: This is going to be dependent on what part of the world you're in, but in a lot of countries, tretinoin and its counterparts like tazarotene are only available through prescription. I mentioned retinoids in the routine so if you're able to get your hands on a prescription from a doctor, it may be more effective than OTC retinols. Most doctors will prescribe a retinoid over hydroquinone, so this is usually easier to procure and can be quite effective on its own as a hyperpigmentation treatment. OTC differin is the only retinoid available over-the-counter (in the US) which can also be used for hyperpigmentation.
Prescription Azelaic Acid: This is another one that's available in lower concentrations over-the-counter (which can still be quite effective) but there are prescription strength grades of azelaic acid. This is usually reserved for rosacea treatment as it tends to target redness and flushing, or as an acne treatment because of its antiseptic properties, but it can also be an effective hyperpigmentation treatment for its tyrosinase-inhibiting ability.
If you made it this far, congratulations! I hope this information is helpful. While it is extensive and based on massive amount of research, experience, experimentation and work with professionals, it may not be perfect and it may not be suitable for everyone. Feel free to offer any constructive criticism or ask any questions in comments. I am always open to expanding my understanding.

2023.05.30 17:01 Deho_Edeba A Joy-Con Rant

The good news is that TotK made it easy to notice there was a problem with my two left Joy-Cons.
The bad news is that they both suffer from some serious drifting :(
It's tainting an otherwise great moment I'm having with the game <3
I'm really angry at Nintendo for selling controllers which are, simultaneously, the most expensive vanilla controllers on the market and also the most unreliable. To be honest I've never understood why they were so expensive in the first place. They also have the worst wireless connection amongst all my controllers (my Switch controllers won't register inputs if I'm slightly too far from the TV in docked mode, not perfectly aligned, or if anything stands in between, while my old PS4 controllers will work from an adjacent room).
I can send them for a free repair to Nintendo, but if I understand correctly joy-con drift is bound to happen again in the future, and the only way to fix it for good would be to buy a 30€ replacement from a third party (Gulikit). That would make a total of 100€ (70 base price + 30 replacement sticks) for each Joycon set? It's ludicrously expensive compared to the traditional price of controllers, between 40-60€.
Td;dr I'm mad about my Joy Cons and I have to vent. Has anybody here come to the same state of mind?

2023.05.30 17:01 YouRolltheDice If Logan was still alive, how will he had played this out?

Lot’s of events leading to Tom being appointed as CEO and Waystar selling to Gojo was decided by a lot of freehand decisions from the siblings
1.) Mattson, wanting to buy ATN, bloating the price - eventhough Rome and Kendall reneged, Shiv played a role here being the inside man
2.) Living+ - This is just Kendall going hard on superficial figures to bump up Stock price (eventually this plot did not even materialize)
2.) Election - Betting on Mencken that they will get leverage on blocking the deal through regulations, only to get fucked in the end. Mattson also realized that he does not need Shiv’s political connection
There’s a lot of decisions made by Siblings led them to losing the company altogether.
If Logan is still alive, how will this play out? One thing is for sure, he will not include ATN whatever it takes. He wouldve sensed Mattson’s up to something right away. Similar to season 2 when he’s negotiating to buy Pierce

2023.05.30 17:00 LeTeebz Under sink water filter

Under sink water filter
Hi everyone! DIYer here. I own an under sink water filter (pictured above) which filters the whole cold feed to my kitchen faucet.
It’s not ideal because I don’t always need all my water to be filtered aside from when I drink it. But as a renter, it was the easiest and less disruptive solution (not having to drill a hole in the counter top to install a separate faucet).
I recently moved and the new place has a pre-drilled hole in the sink with an integrated soap dispenser that I never use.
I would like to replace it by a dedicated filtered water faucet and use it with my existing filter. But unfortunately all the faucets for filtered water that I’ve come across seem to be for 1/4” push fit tubes and my filter’s outlet is 3/8” (since it’s meant to connect directly to the main kitchen faucet).
What would the best solution be to convert my filter from being ‘in line’, to having its own faucet?
In summary, how do I convert my system from:
wall valve—->3/8”—filter—3/8”—-> kitchen faucet
wall valve—->3/8”—filter—3/8”—-> dedicated filtered water faucet
The manufacturer of the filter hasn’t been helpful and are just pushing me to buy a whole other filter variant which is meant for a dedicated faucet (that version has 1/4” push tubes for both the inlet and outlet). Though it seems like a waste to replace the whole unit and I wanted to get someone else’s opinion first.
Thank you all in advance
