2023.06.03 09:57 Grateful_Ted69 14 days clean

I have used opiates for the better part of 20 years . I used to go down to Mexico and buy United States pharmaceutical Opiates such as norco and oxy. I have had. A prescription from a doctor in the United States for 30 mg of hydrocodone per day and it was never enough. I would have to supplement. Every 2 weeks because I ran out. I finally got tired. Of this lifestyle and I quit 14 days ago.I have been on suboxone for 6 years in the past and I got off that and it was 3 months of pain but I wouldn't recommend to Anybody. Once I got off off of the suboxone It didn't take long for me to find a pain doctor and get on the norco.I finally realized I don't want it to get off of the shit for good and so I cut myself off from my doctor and I made a plan to taper.I tapered slowly and the last week. Of my taper I took 5 mg of hydrocodone.It's 14 days and I'm feeling a lot better.. However, I have bad days where I get the chills. And some body aches but I'm able to sleep at night every night.One of the things that has helped me the most has been magic mushrooms. I take less than a gram every other day.It has totally helped me with withdrawals. And I am even drinking about half of what I used to drink.I will never return to opiates in my life. If anybody wants advice on how to quit please hit me up.I know how much we suffer from this disease and there is hope because I feel so good.I exercise every day and it really helps me with the withdrawals. Anyway I just wanted to share a part of my story

2023.06.03 09:56 FearfulInoculum Versatile Compact Zoom P&S - Sony DSC-RX100 VII or Lumix DMC-ZS100

Seeking a recommendation for a versatile digital compact zoom point and shoot for vacations/concerts, mostly outdoor photos.
No photography background and don’t want to fiddle too much with lenses, settings, post-processing.
Something easy to pull from my pocket, take some photos, maybe print some later for the wall at home.
Good glass, no lens changing, will last years.
Narrowed it down to the Lumix and Sony but open to a recommendation or feedback from owners.
thanks in advance!

2023.06.03 09:56 Wladiuss Which UPS should I get?

I have a pc with: i7-12gen, RTX3070ti and as PSU a Corsair Rm850X Gold 2021, 850watt, in fact. As I understand it, I BELIEVE I need 900-1000w, but considering that in the future I would also like to connect speakers, I don't know if it's enough. The ups should have active PFC (I think it's called that, I apologize if I have the wrong name) and should be: line interactive or double conversion (I think), therefore either modified or pure sine wave. And I understood this in the last few days, studying online. But I still don't know what would be a good model. I saw that APC is a good brand, but I still don't know which model to refer to or whether to consider other brands. I don't want to spend too much, but in any case I would like a long-lasting and very silent UPS

2023.06.03 09:56 chilakiller1 Any cool events/activities going on next week? (8-10 June)

Hi all,
My husband and I will be visiting Berlin next week for a couple of days (8-10 June). And we were wondering if there are any cool events, happenings, exhibitions or anything good worth having a look/going there? The event agendas out there are so extensive it’s hard to find the good stuff 😅. Just one detail, I’m pregnant so we are not looking for crazy club parties nor anything too taxing on my growing body/belly, rather something more pregnant friendly. Thanks a lot in advance 🙂

2023.06.03 09:56 NoHope4785 Is there a decent deck within the structure decks ?

I would like to play with a deck from the structures but is one playable in ranked if I buy it x3. I would like to know if one of them x3 would make me enjoy playing online, I don’t have much usr stones but I have most staples already crafted. At first I wanted to play cyber dragon but what an awful deck list I don’t even think buying this thing x3 would make anything good. From what I have seen black wing seems good, is another deck from ok ?

Looking to replace my Netgear router since it's a piece of crap.
Looking for a dual band router that isn't expensive, has decent features (loved all of Netgear's features) and has good range since my house is large.
I do not want to have several access points dotted all around the house since it's not seamless to switch between them

2023.06.03 09:55 AnotherSmartNickname As of this time, you can't finish System Shock Remake more than once

Why? Because the reactor lever will bug out and become unable to be used when playing the game for the second time. According to this video (I am not the author), this happens when you save/load the game after using the lever, and carries to your new save files.
This means that I now have to put the game away for unspecified length of time because I simply cannot progress further due to a bug. I had zero serious complaints about SS remake, Nightdive, good job ruining it. If anyone knows a workaround, please share.

2023.06.03 09:55 R4venking Super Mario Bros Movie Sequell fancast:

a month ago the new Supermario movie came out (NO SPOILER), I have to say that in my opinion it's a good movie, it could have been better in my opinion but it's still a good movie. Anyway, after the scene after the credits they made me think that there will probably be a sequel, Illumination hasn't confirmed anything yet, but I think they are still planning it, anyway until that movie comes out I had in mind a fan cast for the next characters in the next film, which if I have to say my opinion I would love to see in the film the villain Wart, the final boss of Supermario bros 2 (the images you are about to see are created by me on Photoshop, they are not official);
Wart (voiced by Ron Perlman) Lemmy and Larry (bought voiced by Nancy Cartwright) Morton (voiced by Matt Stone) Wendy (voiced by Emma Watson or Amanda Stenberg, il let you guys decide wich one is better for the role) Iggy (voiced by Bill Skarsgärd) Roy (voiced by Jhon malkovich) Ludwig (voiced by trey Parker) (just like jack black rote a song for this movie trey can right one for the next) Bowser jr (voiced by Finn Wolfhard) Princess Daisy (voiced by Winona Ryder) Toadette (I didn't choose a voice actress for her, you guys tell me Who could be the voice actress) Toadsworth (voiced by George Clooney or lan Mkellen, il Let you guys decide wich one is better for the role) Wario (voiced by Danny Devito) Waluigi (voiced by William Daefoe) King Whomp (voiced by Dwane Johnson) Mike Tyson (voiced by chris rock) F.L.U.D.D. (voiced by Tom Kenny) And finally Lakitu (voiced by Robert Deweny Jr)
So what do you think about my cast? Is it good? And wich voices would you have chosed instead? Also who would you chose for toaddette, Wendy and Toddsworth?

2023.06.03 09:55 First-Welder-1821 Is this legal? Am I reading it correctly? Employer can terminate the employee, even after the standard 3 month probation period?

So my wife has just been offered a job by and while reading through their lengthy job offer form, she found this section to be a bit peculiar, it reads:
a. For the first three months your employment will be probationary. During the
probation period, your employment may be terminated at any time with or
without cause and without advance warning, notice or compensation,
except as may be required under Employment Standards.
b. After successful completion of the probationary period, the Company shall
be entitled to terminate your employment for cause at any time without
notice or payment of compensation in lieu.
a. In addition, after completion of the probationary period, the Company may
terminate your employment at any time without cause on providing you with
the greater of (i) or (ii) below:
i. such minimum written notice or compensation in lieu, including
benefit continuation and, if applicable, severance pay and any other
entitlement, as is required under the ESA; or
ii. such minimum written notice or compensation in lieu (in accordance
to ESA) plus an additional one (1) week for every completed
consecutive year of employment, to an overall maximum of 26 weeks
plus, if applicable, statutory severance pay. At its option, the
Company may pay compensation in lieu of such notice calculated as
required under the ESA and provide only such benefit continuation
as is required under the ESA. Where compensation in lieu of notice
under this sub-clause is payable in excess of ESA minimum pay in
lieu of notice, such excess shall count against entitlement to statutory
severance pay, if any. The duty to mitigate shall apply in respect of
compensation in lieu of notice payable in excess of ESA minimums.
You agree to sign a release of all claims arising out of such
termination under this sub-clause in return for payment of any
compensation in lieu of notice paid in excess of ESA entitlements.
You expressly agree that the foregoing shall be in full satisfaction of all
entitlements you may have on such termination under contract or common
law, including entitlement to reasonable notice.
c. You agree to provide 2 weeks’ written notice of your resignation.
d. In the event you are unable to carry out substantially all your duties as an
employee for a continuous period of six months or for periods cumulatively
exceeding six months in any 12-month period, the Company may, at its
option, deem your employment to be terminated without any requirement
that notice or compensation be provided by the Company. You will, of
course, remain eligible for any disability benefits for which you may be
qualified. You agree this represents reasonable accommodation of such
absence if due to disability.
e. You acknowledge that all items of any and every nature or kind created or
used by you in your employment with the Company or furnished by
Company to you, including, without limitation, all equipment, automobiles,
credit or gas cards, books, records, reports, files, memory sticks, CD's,
DVD's, manuals, literature, Confidential Information or other materials, will
remain and be considered the exclusive property of at all times
and will be surrendered to the Company, in good condition, promptly at
the request of the Company or on the termination of your employment with
the Company. You hereby authorize the Company to deduct from any
amounts otherwise owing to you the reasonable value of any of the
Company’s property not returned or lost or damaged due to your
negligence, as well as any unearned amounts such as unearned vacation
pay advanced to you.
I understand the standard three month probation period, but it seems like they can just fire her for no reason at any time with no notice while she still has to give the standard 2 weeks notice? Is this legal?
We both have a hard time actually understanding this kind of legal jargon... so maybe we've just misinterpreted it?
She is an excellent worker and really has no reason to worry about getting fired for anything of her own doing. It just seems like a red flag for the employer to have so much control. Is this a (new) standard? Thanks for any info on this.

2023.06.03 09:55 metaldood19 33M - Up late and looking for some friends that like staying up late!

Hey! So i'm an insomniac and unfortunately tend to stay up until the sun comes up. I'm a pretty big nerd in general so I usually just spend it hanging out and gaming all night. I'm also really into warhammer so I'll build models as well and usually paint well into the morning hours. Its enjoyable. I'm a creative professional so I enjoy using my creative side not for just corporate stuff which is boring when done endlessly throughout the work week.
I'm a big fan of the paranormal and love watching youtube channels full of endless ghost videos. Who doesn't like being spooky? I'm a huge D&D nerd and love dark fantasy and can often be found reading or writing the genre. It's badass imo. I have a lot of tattoos and am currently working on a leg sleeve. I hope to start my chest soon too. I love heavy music and especially like hardcore/black metal. but honestly I'll listen to anything. Oh and i'm extremely 420 friendly.
Hope that's enough to get something going. talk to you soon!

2023.06.03 09:55 little090 So upset, will i loose my kid?

Im so confused. "background"
We met 2 years ago. Everything was amazing. I have a daughter from a previous relationship and always worried about being able to find the perfect man.
I ended up dating an amazing man (at the time).
As time went on he would act strange and when he met my friends he said they were not good for me. (i know red flags, but my friends are crazy but they are good to me and i am just the quiet one in the group).
We were "doing" stuff in bed one night and he bite my lip and wouldn't let it go. He said that I was a whore and loved attention.
I left him after this. Then after work I got home, outside my front door was flowers, a massive new mirror, a card, and new furniture. I rang him to say thank you. He apologised and said he has issues with gambling.
I told him i would help i was happy he told me.
Time went on we went on holidays he spolied us rotten with gifts, disney, italy, trips everywhere. And then every few months he would blip, call me horrible names, say horrible things about my body (to the point where i can not even look at myself in the mirror anymore).
Every few month blips, turned into every fortnight, every weekend and recently every other day.
I left him ages ago. But I still see him sometimes as my daughter loves him, his family our like my family. It really was a dream relationship, i sometimes regretted ending it, but i didn't like what it was doing to my energy levels and mental health. Everything had to be about him. If i went out with a friend he would get drunk in my house and ask me if i was woth another man. (literally in work uniform after work beers and food with 2 female friends) i stopped going out. He had fake social media accounts under different names to talk to women, was on sex meetup sites. He was going to gambling meetings and getting close woth females there. I had enough and left.
Past few weeks i have been feeling absolutely amazing. I have felt free, doing fun things, enjoying life, beach trips, out with friends. I was ignoring his texts.
** I was OVER him completely**
He rang me saying he needed help badly. He's in debt and needs me to help him get well. He was crying. I said okay, you can stay with me for 4 weeks, until pay day.
The first 3 days were fun and as the weekend approached he asked if we could try to be a family again. I said no. I don't love you, i am here to help you, that's it.
He kept asking, and asking and asking. He admitted that hundreds of women have been propositioned him (from work and his home town) and he has wasted his time on me. I told him i was happy for him and he should move on. He agreed.
We planned to go swimming this weekend. He came to pick me up. (i noticed 100€ was missing). He said he dropped it. I counted money and he asked me again about beimg a family. I said no stop asking. He said no point in living ill just go gamble. We got into a hige argument. He was trying to get bank card to gamble and i ended up flushing it down the toilet. (im not an anrgy person but i have been lisntening to gambling stuff non stop for 2 years and reacted). I told him he needed help, i couldn't do it alone.
I had money in my hand sitting down. He stood staring at me. He walked over and out his arms out and i thought he was giving me a hug. He slapped both sides of my face and squeezed really hard saying"your mine i want you, I want you, i need you" over and over again.
I locked myself outside. He left. My daughter was in neighbours house at pool party. I rang my mum. My mum rang the police. And the police are now wanting to put my child on a protection list with social services. (ie. Her dad will get custody (whole other dilemma she hates going to his house, he won't let her be a kid ie.messy time, he doesn't play with her).
I know he won't come near me again, just want to be at peace and enjoy like last week.
I can't sleep now, my mental health is very very low because I am afraid I am going to loose my daughter. I lay awake all night looking at her.
My whole life is all about her. I am an amazing mother, my daughter is confident, intelligent, emotionally intune, empathic and so loving.
She's top in her class for reading and maths. I take her swimming everyweek, to the beach, holidays, horse riding, fishing. Everything i have goes to my daughter.
And now because my mum reported my ex for domestic violence, I am going to loose my daughter.
I just feel like giving up.

2023.06.03 09:54 StanleyHasLostIt Porn sub for dysphoric guys

I have a lot of internalised transphobia that I'm trying to actively work on. One thing I'm trying is to be okay with my own sexuality and seeing my body as a pleasant sexual thing. Seeing other transmasc bodies has helped a lot but as far as I'm aware there's only one porn sub for us (ftmporn) and that's doing the exact opposite for me. It's full of tits, "lick my pussy", "breed me" and that kind of stuff. If you're into that, good for you, but for me it's dysphoric. Is there a porn sub for transmascs who only want masculine language?

2023.06.03 09:54 Logical-District2790 My process

Hey so I just had my surgery on the 30 and I thought I’d give a detailed description of how the process went for me. Please bare with me. I did the best I could describing and telling my story.
The beginning:
I went to my doctor and asked for her to refer me to the bariatric doctor because I was ready to discuss surgery. Last year before I had my 2nd son I had started a weight loss pill that helped me lose 30 pounds. Which put the breaks on getting surgery. (It was a discussion with my doctor but I wanted to try the pills before doing surgery) A requirement was being over 210 and with taking the pills it brought me to 200 so I didn’t see the point of surgery. But then I got pregnant, had gestational diabetes and gained a bunch of weight. He’s one now and I still haven’t been able to let the weight go which motivated me to go the surgery route. My genetics also play a huge part in why I decided to get the surgery. Me and my mom both have the same body type and she struggles with her weight. And I decided I didn’t want to be on that path.
The program:
So I started my program. Which consisted of monthly appointments with a dietician practicing diets and figuring out any bad habits to try to get rid of them. I’ll be honest I didn’t follow much. I just showed up to my appointments and took all the information in. As long as I didn’t gain weight I was okay. I started the program at 250lbs. At the end of the 6 months I lost 5lbs. I failed the psych evaluation and had to redo it. But it only delayed the process by a couple of weeks. No biggie.
Once I got the okay to have surgery, they scheduled my day. I believe I was called on the 1st week of may and was schedule may 30. I was super shocked it was so close. But was ready for it to be done. I had to do a liquid diet for a week. Also know as the liver shrink diet. Only liquids my dietician said salads for dinner was okay. Which I followed to a T until the 6th day. Before the liquid stage I got sick and had no appetite so I wasn’t eating anything at all. In that week I lost 5lbs, I gained like 2 back when I started eating again but then I went right to the liquid diet and I felt like I was losing it. I hadn’t really ain’t a solid meal in almost 2 weeks. So I had one solid meal of rice and meat (spanish food). I went back to the liquid diet for the next 2 days and lost 7lbs in total on the liquid diet. I was also told to stop any vitamins or pills so I did that as well.
The surgery:
So the day of my surgery I didn’t eat anything. My surgeon recommended I drink a G2 on the way to the hospital to help with the anesthesia. Which I did. I didn’t drink the whole thing cause my stomach was all twisted from not really eating anything. They also wanted me to shower the night before and the morning of using the hibiclens. I had my mom drop me off because they don’t allow you to drive home and I did not want to leave my car in the garage overnight. I got there at 7 am. I was admitted and waited to be called to the back. They put me in a admitting room where they had me change into a surgery gown. Had me document my belongings. And pee in a cup for a pregnancy test. They asked all the same questions all over again which I answered. A nurse wiped my belly again with what I believe was hibiclens again. They then put my iv and started fluid. The anesthesiologist came in asked me questions and then said they were giving me meds to go to sleep. They rolled me out to the surgery room which was almost 10am when I checked the time. 5 minutes later I was out. I woke up in the recovery room.
Waking up:
So I woke up and was out of it. I believe it was around 12-1pm. They let me stay asleep while they made sure my vitals were back to normal. I did hear the nurse a few times saying that my pressure was high but they were able to fix it because they moved me to my own room shortly after. Getting to my own room I slept sooo much. They would come to get me up to walk every 4 hours unless I got up to pee. Which I had to call a nurse to help me go cause I wasn’t allowed to get up on my own. Majority of the times I woke up I felt nauseous. Which lead to me throwing up blood.(this is normal) So for the first 18 hours out of surgery I slept, woke up to pee, threw up and walked around the floor for a lap to get my steps in. They would also give me pain and nausea meds. I was also getting continuous fluids. Which is why I was peeing every 2-3 hours. The pain always maintained level 6-7 it never got worse then that. And the pain meds and sleeping made it non existent. (I want to add I do have a high pain tolerance. I had 2 8+lb babies with no epidural if that helps gauge it.) The next morning I felt so restless I was ready to go. They discharged me around 12pm and my sister in law picked me up. They were able to bring me my meds to take home and I went home feeling way better then I did the first day.
Things I think I forgot:
I have 5 incisions. I’m currently on a liquid diet. It hurts to cough ( I am still alittle sick) the glue is already coming off around the incisions. I hardly drink or eat anything. I’m struggling to hit my goals but I’m hopeful that I can do it. I’m only on day 2 of being home. I do get gas. But burping helps relieve the pains. I don’t take the pain meds as prescribed. Only when I really feel like I’m in pain. I am a weed smoker and I have posted about it in the past and wanted to say I did smoke 2 nights before the surgery. But not the night of. And everything went smooth for me. This doesn’t mean it will be the same for everyone else. Also want to add I am not really a heavy smoker. I just smoke when I want to. I’m sorry if this was long. But I noticed alot of people asking how others procedures went and I wanted to share mine. I hope this will help someone. So far I do not regret my decision. I am a total of 14lbs down since I started my liquid diet. I know it’s just the beginning and I have so much ahead of me to conquer. The worst has past and I honestly believe it was the surgery. Please ask any questions. I’m open to answering anything.

2023.06.03 09:54 Tikoati No, it's not strong, you're just being frustrated.

I read a lot of posts about people complaining over some cards, some decks or some playstyles. There is probably nothing to nerf, nothing wrong in the current state of the game.
What is wrong is you ; you just lost and are frustrated because you didn't feel good about this game you lost.
But what is wrong is that Gwent designers didn't told you that you would lose. They let you think that you can win. So, you trust them, you grab your most fun deck with you, and lose against some heavy engine or heavy control deck.
I tell you here why you lose and why you're frustrated, in hope that you'll understand why Gwent is not made for you as it is and you should either change your mind or leave.
When you enter a game, you are not equally strong with your opponent. It's not a traditional chess game. You and your opponent don't start equally, here are the things that will have an impact on your winning ability : - Intrinsic strength of your decks - Matchup - Matchup knowledge (skill) - RNG draw (luck) - Concentration (you can be tired) - and probably more
You need to learn to guess how much chance you have to win when you start a game. Do you play meta? Do you know the matchup? Are you in a good mood/mind to play?
Pro players have about 70% winrate and not 100%. They lose about 1/3 of their games ! They learned to accept that they will lose some games anyway. Even in tournaments, BO3 are designed to let players lose 1/3 of their games.
If you are willing to play Gwent, you need to accept all this. You need to accept that you'll lose because you took a bad deck against a good one. Or you took a polarized deck that will lose against heavy engines. Or you lose because you don't know how to play against some of the decks.
Now that was the part where you need to accept to lose. Second part is where you accept that Gwent is a strategic game and that fun is not allowed.
You are baited by the deckbuilding ability. You think that you can make anything, see opponents playing anything in return and have fun. You fool. You're just making bad decks, lowering your chances to win. Then you complain because you didn't learn to lose. Hopefully now that you read the first part of this post, you know now how likely you will lose with such "fun" decks.
NO. Gwent is a strategy game. It's chess. Your opponents will always play the same decks over and over. You will play the same decks over and over. Playing meta is playing a balanced game. You won't expect players playing some "pikeman" in a chess game. You know exactly what he will play, what is his range of plays. That's how a strategy game is fun.
You've been fooled by card games. I'm sorry, I've been fooled too. I am one of you, being frustrated by the promise to build everything, to meet some other crazy deckbuilders, because I'm not a meta slave. But now, I just launch the game every so often, trying some clunky combos or some 27 cards Renfri decks... But I know that I'll lose. I know my opponent will break me with meta decks. I play at lower rank because I can counter the lack of strength with some skill and game knowledge. But all this is not fair games.
Deckbuilding is a bait. Gwent is a strategy game.
Yet, there is something you can complain about! Yay!
Gwent didn't gave you all this information. You don't know how to play the game, you are lost. You thought you could have fun with deckbuilding in ladder. And THAT is wrong. Gwent team should have warned you. They should have put warnings about your winrate when you create a non-meta deck.
You're not being frustrated for nothing. They made you some promises they didn't fulfill. They didn't taught you that you'll lose the next game...
Now, when you lose and are frustrated, don't post on Reddit that X or Y is too strong. Make a post for Gwent designers to display a message before the game to remember you that you're either bad at game or playing a bad deck (or both).

2023.06.03 09:54 jeremyj0916 Questions as a likely new inducted member to the club.

Am waiting for results from swab tests but lets assume I got hsv1 or hsv2 genitally. Oddly enough I was using a condom for V but did get a bj with no cover so could be HSV1 from oral or HSV2 from V in an unlucky bout as we know for guys condoms help some but not as much as one would hope.
My questions are as follows:
  1. How long should I wait before starting antivirals post outbreak? I feel like I should let my body produce antibodies long enough that if I come in contact with the virus later in other regions I won't get a repeat outbreak there too. Am I understanding that right or are the antibodies going to be localized to a region in my body regardless(would think not since blood tests show them @ 6 weeks for most people)? Ex: HSV1 down low if I wait long enough I won't get HSV1 up top? Or same goes for HSV2?
  2. Sex - So if I have HSV1 down there, getting oral from 60-70% of population that has oral herpes means they won't get anything up top. Now if I have HSV2 they may get HSV2 up there is my understanding but thats pretty rare as HSV2 does not typically take to oral regions for some odd reason same way HSV1 typically does not take to genital regions(but they can, potentially in my unlucky circumstances)?
  3. Daily antivirals - Valtrex(or generic) 500mg once a day for suppression or 1g once a day for suppression? Seems medical articles I read say 500mg is enough. Rather always take less of a med than more unless there are clinical studies showing decent benefits.
  4. I have heard typically if you have HSV2 its almost unheard of to get HSV1 down genitally later, why is that? Does HSV2 produce antibodies that also fight HSV1 moreso than just the fact HSV1 typically does not like spreading genitally(although that may be what actually happened to me)?
  5. Does HSV1 genitally also carry the 3-4x more likely to contract HIV risk that HSV2 typically brings with it? I see that higher risk stat for HSV2 posed often but no talk of HSV1, I am guessing the same increased risk is there and people refer to HSV2 for the increased risk just because its more genitally involved.
  6. If having other casual partners do any of yall take PReP for peace of mind to the above knowledge ^. Any recommendations on where to get both the Valtrex + PreP potentially at most affordable rates? I was planning to use goodrx coupon + publix which seemingly gets pretty good pricing in the US on 90/180 day supplies. Maybe there are some other websites or groups that can deal it out even cheaper though.
  7. My outbreak is the first of its kind I have ever seen down low which is why I think I only recently contracted it and pretty confident by the timelines who did it in a 2-12 day period before symptoms showed. But really does not hurt or anything, just the typical clear bumps in groups that match most google images. Maybe has a slight itch and tingling but not much if any. If its not really painful does that indicate I have likely had the virus awhile already? Or does it indicate more likely to be HSV1 vs HSV2? I have heard HSV1 is typically easier on you that HSV2? Is that true orally or genitally generally speaking?

2023.06.03 09:54 Row_o_o_n Vocal advice on technique and time management !!

Hello :D I've recently taken singing seriously but currently the hold back is my busy schedule. I have college and tuition 5/7 and 4/7 days respectively plus additional homework and revision for assessments. There is almost no time to practice singing, and when there is, I tend to laze off because i'm way too tired to sing properly.... within me, I have already decided to prioritise my singing and dancing (I also dance) before my education, which doesnt imply that I will ignore my education of course but its just not what i want to pursue. But i attend a college which thinks otherwise... they pressure lots of students into educations. I try not let it get to me though sometimes it ruins my mood, although I am quite good at my education, its not my passion so to say. I need help on this, any help will be appreciated on a schedule... i have tried to make a timetable for my passion of singing but as tests arrive I have to shut down all of that to revise then take it up after the tests are over...which i do not like.
And my second issue is when artists give advice on 'Technique' what does technique exactly mean? Like the style and way the singer is singing ,yes but furthermore? I want a detailed explaination, examples of healthy and good singing techniques that I can implement and try into my own style. Straining and resonant ect..
Thank you so much for taking the time to read I appreciate it.💗

2023.06.03 09:54 somebuddy13 I workout/play ball 4-5 hours 3 days a week

Yeah so... Title pretty much says it. And I wanted to ask this since I feel like it might do wonders for my physical/mental health.
So I workout 4-5 hours a week (been around 3-4 though, recently), the 1st part of my exercise includes lifting (alternating full body and splits every few weeks), knee exercises, stretches, plyomentrics which takes a little over an hour, and then I play pickup basketball games for about a good 3-4 hours. The games can get pretty intense since the competition is good, so there can be a LOT and I mean A LOT of running back and forth. And this has been my workout routine 3 days a week for almost a year now. I also have school and a part time job (2 days a week) which can also get physically tiring sometimes. So some things I've noticed about my body recently is that when walking around it's not so bad, but my knees feel "weak," I feel like my feet are heavy too like lead feet. And I kinda run out of energy (sometimes I have walk back on defense/offense).
My weak knees and energy levels are some things I've been trying to fix for some time now, plyomentrics and knee exercises have definitely helped, but not enough. Because of this I'm starting to think that I'm working out TOOOO MUCH. I don't really have as much energy as I'd like to do other things in other areas of my life.
I know everybody's bodies and routines are different, but what do you guys think, is this too much exercise even if it's 3 days a week? Could this be why my energy levels and knees are up to speed?
Thank you!!!

2023.06.03 09:54 data_guy__ Inquiry about the Chinese sentiments on MENA cultures.

I am trying to understand the world's point of view on my country (Iran), and the whole region. Being proficient in English and having consumed a significant amount of English media, I have developed a good understanding of their viewpoint towards us. Until the recent peace deal, I had never been particularly curious about how the Chinese perceive our culture.
I analyzed lots of twitter data and I can confidently say that the peace deal made a new kind of hope and made our whole country calmer.
Through my interactions with Americans, I have noticed that despite their government's significant involvement in the region, they are mostly unaware of our culture. While I have encountered lovely American friends online, even they possessed limited or non-existent knowledge about our cultural background.
My reason for being curious about these issues is that I can see how my people are having high hopes towards foreign powers, and of course they are right to do so because we have the potential of becoming a prosperous country if we overcome our own problems first and then the sanctions that the west has put on us.
I would greatly appreciate it if you could share your perspective on our culture and your opinion on the impact your government has had on the region (Especially in regards to the recent peace deal). I want to emphasize that my question arises from genuine curiosity, and all I seek to understand is how China, will treat us, which depends on the sentiments of the Chinese people towards our cultures.
Thank you
