Do they work? Im trying to keep my pooch's mouth dry and clean. I can tell she's uncomfortable drinking from a regular bowl too - she's always very delicate and always trying to get the least amount of water on her mustache and beard as possible. Id like to know everyones experience with them and exploring the idea of a water fountain as well.
Ive seen a floating water bowl with a filter underneath the lid, and im not sure how that works? If it works at all.

2023.05.29 14:59 Lichen000 Auxlang: A case of the Mondays
I have been bitten by the auxlang bug (cripes!), and I was wondering how I might go about making names for the days of the week (and by extension, the months). The options that have occurred to me are as follows:
- Name the days of the week after the numbers 1-7
- Name each day of the week a 'blend' of how that day sounds in the sample languages
- Give each day of the week a totally new name
The issue I have with Option #1 is, where to start the counting? I think most Europeans would agree that the first day of the week is Monday; but in Arabic the first day (yawm al-aḥad
) is Sunday. I imagine this varies from culture to culture, and one goal of this auxlang is that it is meant to approach cultural neutrality.
A second issue with #1 is that if the months
are named after numbers (which seems sensible to me, because pretty much the whole world operates on the Gregorian calendar now), then dates might get a little confusing if the day of the week (named after a number) is stated along with the date and month.
Option #2 feels a bit messy and unfulfilling, but I am open to counter-opinions.
Option #3 appeals to me, and one idea I can implement in this one is to make the days of the week as phonetically distinct from each other as possible (within the bounds of the (naturally) constrained phonotactics of this auxlang), because I don't need to worry about their fidelity to underlying forms.
What are your thoughts? Opinions? Rebuttals? Suggestions? :)

2023.05.29 14:59 MagdalenaFk DWP Executive officer provisional offer withdrawn
I got a provisional offer came in on Friday from DWP I accepted that and they asked me to fill in my onboarding information which I did but could not upload my DBS so I tried to call them but no one picked my call on Friday so I said I will try on Tuesday since Monday is a bank holiday only for me to receive an email this morning to say my application is withdrawn because I did not submit my onboarding information on time. My question is how time does one get to fill in all the onboarding information? Because I just received the offer Friday the 26th May 2023- now they withdraw it on the 29th May 2023. Has anyone experienced this? As I wanted to ask a few questions from them as well. What do you advise me I do because I really wanted this job after four attempts.

2023.05.29 14:58 maxim_nazarenko Chained Echoes. Patch Notes 1.2.
Update v1.2 is here including the New Game + feature and small changes to the crystal crafting system. This update is live on Steam and will arrive on other platforms due to new content within the next 1-2 weeks.
The New Game + feature unlocks after beating the game and having a cleared save file. You can choose this feature from the start menu.
Details regarding crystal system changes can be read below.
- Added: New Game + option in the start menu when cleared save file is present
- Added: New way of obtaining crystals *
- Added: Crystal gather chains **
- Added: Option to lower running speed
- Added: More Stat Boosts and Passive Skills for Kylian for NG+
- Changed: Removing crystals from equipment yields the proper former crystal ***
- Changed: Selling equipment auto-removes the crystal
- Changed: Lowered chance of getting big crystals
- Changed: Crystals with a purity of 0 can’t drop
- Changed: Smoother crafting menu navigation
- Changed: A few enemy stats
- Changed: Lowered bonus from agility passive and class emblem bonus
- Changed: Double Steps & Drunken Master don’t stack.
- Fixed: bug regarding the Shaved Head boss
- Fixed: other minor bugs and collision errors
- When interacting with a crystal source the player now gets a choice of three crystals for every drop. The player can choose one or none. Choosing none gives the player arc depending on their game’s progress. This gives the player more control over which crystals he wants and which he considers useless for his builds. Also, this makes the inventory less cluttered. This whole system can be turned off in the options.
** If the player chooses a crystal a chain starts. The more crystals of the same property are gathered the more likely they will drop. Choosing a crystal with a different property will restart the chain. Choosing none will continue the chain. This makes hunting for certain crystals a lot easier. When a crystal drop is boosted through a chain it is marked as “Boost”
***This only applies to crystals inserted in version 1.2 or higher.

2023.05.29 14:58 Dexado Minimizing Your Tax Burden with the Help of a Tax Accountant Ottawa.
| || | submitted by Dexado to u/Dexado [link] [comments]
Are you tired of paying more in taxes than necessary? Are you looking for ways to reduce your tax burden without breaking the law? Look no further than an Ottawa accountant. These financial experts know all the tricks and deductions to help minimize your taxes, leaving more money in your pocket where it belongs.

What is a Tax Burden?
When the term "tax burden" is mentioned, it may bring to mind an image of a firm grasp on your hard-earned money. But what exactly does it mean?
A tax burden refers to the amount of money you are obligated to pay in taxes. This burden can be categorized into two types: direct and indirect taxes. Direct taxes are imposed directly on individuals and businesses, such as income taxes, while indirect taxes are levied on goods and services, like sales tax.
The total tax burden can also be represented as a percentage of your income. For instance, if your annual tax bill amounts to $10,000 and your household income is $100,000, your average tax rate would be 10%.
You might encounter the term "effective tax rate," which is often used interchangeably with "average tax rate." However, effective tax rates take into account all the different types of taxes you pay, including federal, state, and local taxes. If you reside in a high-tax state like New York or California, your effective tax rate will exceed your average tax rate.
The most effective approach to minimize your overall tax burden is by working with a seasoned Chartered Professional Accountant

2023.05.29 14:58 Ok_Move_7139 Simulating ICP Sensor Data for Software Development:
I'm currently working on software development that involves an ICP sensor, but I'm facing a challenge when it comes to simulating the sensor data. I have the sensor's IP address, and I want to create a simulation where it appears that the data is being sent from the sensor itself. However, I'm unsure how to achieve this.
If you have any ideas, techniques, or examples of how I can simulate the data transmission to make it appear as if it's coming from the sensor on the given IP address, it would really help me ! My main objective is to create a simulated environment that closely resembles the behavior of the sensor and the machine in terms of data transmission.
The sensor I have is an ICP ET-7000

2023.05.29 14:57 the-average-human Some help finding our family dog
Hi Reddit, it's my first post after a long time just as a reader. It's an important decision and I thought it was my moment to come to the community for advice.
We're looking for the dog breeds that better fit our lifestyle and preferences.
We have a 5yo daughter, very well behaved (she won't mistreat the dog and will try to help us up to her possibilities), and live in a big house (several sets of stairs, in case it could be relevant) with a nice yard and a swimming pool for the summer.
I've done my homework before coming for help and already filled the questionnaire, so let's go:
1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs? Had a German shepherd dog when I was 15. Took care of him and trained him on the basics (potty train, sit, come, stay…) with reasonable success. He died too young at 5. Also lived with several dogs (and took care of them) during the summers while working in an endangered species center for two months every summer. 2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a reputable breeder? I like the idea of adopting, but having a 5 year old daughter I’m closer to going to using a reputable breeder. Too many pitbulls and difficult dogs in the adoption centers I’ve visited. 3) Describe your ideal dog. Medium-large to large family dog, good character and calm, playful with children but not too crazy and too high energy, can live with other dogs or cats. Loves the family. 4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why? Attracted to Terranova due to the calm character and being good with kids, not in love of the slobber and it being too big and heavy that you can’t even take it to a run or hike Considering Golden Retriever also due to the good nature Other breeds we consider are Samoyed, Cobberdog, Gos D’atura (Catalonian Shepherd), Bobtail German Shepherd is not under consideration due to how broken the breed seems to be since I had one. They now look like the caricature of what I had with the very low hips. It’s my dog standard since I was little. 5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do? Mostly the basics, nothing special. Potty training, some home etiquete, basic commands to walk close, sit, come, stay and other key things like not jumping on people and not pulling the lease when on a walk. 6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport? No competition. Would be cool to take the dog when I go running, but not a must (we’re considering Terranovas and this would be out of the question)
Care Commitments 7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day? I work from home most of the time with a flexible agenda. My wife is studying at home as well. My daughter is home after school. We can dedicate a fair amount of time to interact and play with the dog and some of that time can be training. During the rest of the day, he can be with me or my wife while we work or study. 8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park? Walk/run at least an hour or more everyday, we have access to dog parks and a pine forest close by. I run some days so he can come with me and we can have hikes on the nearby forest. 9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly? I’m fine brushing hair and can do some grooming, but I’ll look for professionals to do it sometimes. I’d rather not spend too much time grooming (negatives on Terranova and Golden), but I’ll do it happily if we choose a breed in need of that.
Personal Preferences 10) What size dog are you looking for? We’re considering something from mid to giant size (25kg - 60kg). Large is cool, better than giant due to health issues and inconvenience. 11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle? We’re flexible on shedding and slobber. Of course we’d rather not have slobber on all our walls but we'll see. I normally prefer larger dogs because they’re calmer and more confident and normally bark only when needed. We don’t want a dog barking non stop. 12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area? He’ll be on the leash during walks, but having access to some forestal areas will mean that sometimes he’ll be off the leash to be able to run and enjoy. It’s important he can learn to behave.
Dog Personality and Behavior 13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space? We prefer attached and affectionate dogs. I’ve lived with Dobermans and I loved them but I think they’re a bit distant and serious for children for example. 14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please? Eager to please 15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors? Tell me the news. Be calm if there’s no threat. Observe and evaluate. Be calm or friendly unless there's a clear threat. 16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs? No 17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid? No aggressiveness to humans
Lifestyle 18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone? I’ll be home most of the time indefinitely. My wife will be as well for at least a year and a half and probably will have a morning job later at most. He’ll be home alone some times and needs to get used to, but won’t be daily. 19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog? Same as mine, although I'll probably do some more walks than my wife. 20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they? We’ll probably have a cat not long after the dog. Possibly a second dog in the future? 21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly? Yes 22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease? We own our house and we have a sizable yard and a salt swimming pool 23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds? We live in Spain, close to Madrid. Some laws apply to breeds like Pit bulls, Rottweilers and other strong bite breeds. I'll have an insurance for sure anyways. 24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live? Summer: quite hot (can go above 40ºC), but we have air conditioned in the house, a swimming pool and a lot of shadow out. The dog can be cool with us inside. Winter: days go from -5ºC to 8ºC
Additional Information and Questions 25) Please provide any additional information you feel may be relevant. 26) Feel free to ask any questions below.

2023.05.29 14:57 AdministrativeAd9610 Keeping stakeholders up to date - best practices/anti-patterns
I am working as a SAFe RTE. In our ART, we are developing an orchestration platform (e.g. customer onboarding, task management, order management, etc.).
From an architectural standpoint, this platform is being used by multiple internal portfolios & products (delivered through other ARTs), in order to enable more digitalisation in their B2B relations.
From a teams topology perspective, we are what you could call a "Platform ART". We review the progress on our PI Objectives on a weekly basis, during the ART sync, where we invite our stakeholders (from the portfolio ARTs), as well.
The PROBLEM: - we see a tendency for our stakeholders to skip our ART sync. Even though our internal members are there to provide the information, and we know we are on track, we don't really get to align with them in one go, which either creates communication gaps or the need for follow-ups
A potential solution: - I am currently considering extending the invite list - I might have to schedule 1to1 chats with the main portfolio representatives, in order to persuade them to join the call. I want to avoid unnecessary meetings for my teams involved in reporting (e.g. POs, Architects)
Even though SAFe provides the guidelines for alignment, in real-life it's a bit more challenging a and we need to get creative.
How are dealing with this in your work involving delivery at scale?

2023.05.29 14:57 sarcarON Tax independence in a marriage
I am looking for some guidance on how to become tax-independent from my husband.
I don’t know a ton about taxes other then the bare minimum, so this might be obvious to some…
I’ve been married for 10 years, and our taxes have always been dependent on one another (that is, I have to state my husbands income when I file). However, for the last 8 years, my husband has been so incredibly bad at doing his taxes that at some points he has not done them for THREE YEARS, which means I am not able to do mine! He can never remember his passwords, which means he has to be on hold for hours trying to get them to send him a new one, which we wait weeks for in the mail… its this whole process of overwhelm that he can’t get over.
He’s holding me back from being able to file my taxes on time (let alone in the correct year) and any time its brought up it turns into a major fight (no need to tell me that I have to convince him to do it, its been a fight for the entirety of our marriage) What’s worse, is that we have two children, and we should be getting CCB and we haven’t received any of it for 3 years. Our finances are not in a good place, and the CCB is lost money that we could be using to help us out.
I am beyond frustrated and I want to take some control of this situation. I want to become tax-Independent form my husband… I want to be able to do my own, without waiting literal years for him to do his so that I can make accurate claims on my own. I want to receive my part of the CCB, so we can have some financial help. Is that possible, or am I forever linked to his tax status??

2023.05.29 14:56 Equinox_SP How to escape the dagger-agility builds???
How do you escape the dagger-agility builds? I have been playing for a long time and I am definitely a very experienced player who prefers more of the PvE experience. But I’m on a PVE-C official because PvE is not as fun if there’s not a chance of getting your a** pushed in here and there.
Anyway… suddenly there’s this group of people laying the smack down on our server. These guys absolutely erase me with their daggers and I can’t even get away from them to run because of the stun lock. I tend to rock 15 vitality and 15 stamina with advanced heavy armor when I’m going about my PvE business and these guys find me.
What sort of counter-build would allow me to escape some of these encounters? I’m solo and they’re running around in a group of 2-3.

2023.05.29 14:56 Content_Call5083 NSB (Straud Legacy) Gen 7 Ep. 108: Prom Court Machinations
| || | submitted by Content_Call5083 to LetsPlayStories [link] [comments]
With prom right around the corner the campaigning for prom court had begun, and Peachy’s grudge against mean girl Mollie
became a big deal.
Mollie appeared to be the front runner for royalty, and his well-rehearsed comedy routine at the talent show made Peachy the obvious class jester.
However, Peachy had other plans. He didn’t need a silly hat to prove he was a top-tier comedian, and Mollie certainly didn’t need an even bigger head. https://preview.redd.it/ip0f8djrpr2b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=8502a176afcd8d23c9a0458690acad79dec46b41
Peachy knew exactly who could benefit from a boost in self confidence, a couple relatives that would never in a million years be elected without drastic intervention. Even with everything he’d learned about manipulating social situations, he wasn’t sure he’d be able to pull it off.
But nothing worth doing came easy, and he wanted to attend prom rooting for an unlikely upset, rather than surrendering to the same old situation. https://preview.redd.it/tcoaqesrpr2b1.png?width=1269&format=png&auto=webp&s=407889bda6a09bb23438ce3806b49c11a6a3124e
With a personality more reminiscent of his sweet, sensitive uncle Steven than his own outgoing father, Peachy’s cousin Paul was a soft-spoken friendly sort who loved to make others laugh, but struggled to believe that he was truly worthy of their smiles and attention.
He just needed an insider’s instincts.
August had found better friends, but he was still clearly envious of “the cool kids”. He couldn’t explain to his brother exactly why popularity was so important to him, but that didn’t change his feelings. Peachy was less sure about dethroning mean queen bee, but he’d see what he could do.
It wasn’t like he wanted to focus on his studies, so Peachy was happy to make both projects the main focus of all his school hours. https://preview.redd.it/bnb9zp1spr2b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=b54e799c256c1acceb2aed8b8fa2e421ac0ca7f0
Training Paul up as the obvious pick for Jester was the easy part, just a matter of applying his hard won primary social skill set in comedy.
He mentored his shy cousin, feeding Paul his best jokes and acting as a “straight man” to enhance the punchlines, while avoiding further personal hijinks.
In no time he could see that public opinion was obediently tilting to recast Paul as the lead class clown, with himself in the role of backup. https://preview.redd.it/r8youaaspr2b1.png?width=1168&format=png&auto=webp&s=d3e612de6ef454030a13060100091009d0ee2053
On the more difficult side of things, Peachy wasn’t actually a member of “the popular crowd” himself, so he was forced to make do with providing August some basic advice. Oh, and dirty tricks. Can’t downplay the usefulness of slander and lies to shape social standing.
In addition to calling in favors from those he’d help cheat their way to better test scores, he enlisted Tori’s help to began spreading nasty rumors about Mollie while simultaneously talking up his brother and cousin. The realism of the rumors seemed to matter less than their boldness.
He didn’t think people would eat up the gossip the way they did, but if there was a limit to the effectiveness of fake news, he didn’t see it in action. https://preview.redd.it/kvz1esjspr2b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=77c2f369090f8f9389fa03eef96de79b7174d10e
While Peachy couldn’t be sure his campaign would keep working all the way to prom night, bringing Mollie down a peg while simultaneously working to enhance the reputation of two much more deserving Sims felt like he was doing good, regardless of how underhanded his methods were.
He really hoped to see August and Paul celebrating up on the stage together come prom night. https://preview.redd.it/hywa40wspr2b1.png?width=1147&format=png&auto=webp&s=240d79f6f08e8d2e4eb5a8cac2a0f1117fb8671c

2023.05.29 14:56 VeryLazyLewis Do some people really think young people can’t afford a house because they buy coffees and stuff?
I go to debates to make friends and socialise, and last week a woman - in response to an argument I made about how screwed the younger generations are - got up and said “young people that I know spend £5 on coffee, and back in my day we use to work hard and save to afford a house”.
And I was just shocked that this tabloid-newspaper-like rhetoric was actually said out loud - and the rest of the older people clapped. Literally, retired people make up half the club.
Firstly, why does everybody point to coffee but nobody questions multiple pints and drinks at pubs and bars a week that’s so normalised?
What’s the issue with me spending £3 (not bloody £5) on a coffee and another person buying multiple rounds at a pub or bar, once, twice, perhaps multiple times a week?
Our generation drink “s less.
Secondly, the cliché argument: wages have stagnated, houses now cost a larger proportion of income to cost, rent is sky-high (I pay 35% of my income on rent), deposits use to take 1 to 2 years to save, and now it’s 4 to 5…
An average deposit outside of London costs £20,000, and back in the 1960s it was around the equivalent of £11,000 in todays money.
ALSO - the flat I live in right now I was forced to take without a viewing because every flat in the city was taken down after 1 hour of being posted, and I was constantly outbid.
On top of that, new tax structure, pensions….I’ve even had to get some private health care and dental care because of how bad the NHS is.
We just want the same life the last generation had, but god dammit, of course the doom of our entire generation is because we spend on £3 to £4 on a coffee a few times a week.
Why do people pretend that they locked themself in a house for 5 years in the 60s/70s/80s/90s to save for a house, with no social life, and demand that we deprive ourself of any fun while we save for a crappy new build flat or house, with exorbitant maintenance and ground fees, or new build houses with sand coloured bricks that should be sent to the last circle of hell.
I don’t even have a car, or debt, I get ‘free holidays’ because my partner is from a beach town abroad, we pay just for cheap RyanAir flights…
I earn exactly the average UK income and it took until age 30 (my current age) to get here.
On my current trajectory, I’ll have a house by 33, perhaps 34.
Then I’ll just pay off my mortgage as I retire, while the last generation and generation before that had it all paid off by 50.

2023.05.29 14:56 Wakatuki Getting off this train.
My wife died 7 weeks ago; her ashes will be scattered on her birthday next month. I look forward to giving her the freedom she deserves. She will be scattered along with an old dog of ours and her brother who died recently too.
Meanwhile for me I have realised that I am sure I have grieving to do and flashbacks will come and go I’m not going to wallow anymore.
My wife had cancer in 2017 and survived with an all clear in 2019. Cancer was discovered again in 2022 and after a 10-12 month battle it was over, we lost, but we knew that from the start.
It has come to my realisation that as much love as I had for her, our relationship turned to a great friendship. We were unable to be intimate and that super close connection that we had before was gone. I was her carer and guardian for the last 4 months and sole carer for the last four weeks of her life.
I have also realised that although she physically died in April, her spirit died months ago, her eyes turned grey, she didn’t want to wake up, she told friends and family this frequently. I am able to process this as the fog is starts to lift.
I have a new therapist, switching from a counsellor, and I have realised my trigger words, scared and alone come from my own illness and not from the passing of my wife. Further yes, I may be scared as I wait for results but I am actually not alone. I have friends, good friends who are there when I need them.
I had moved all of her clothes out of sight and put them in the wardrobe soon after her death. I have today cleared that wardrobe and thrown things out, not a tear shed. I was scared of losing any messages on her phone, conversations we had. We had them, they were said. I don’t need to know them verbatim; I will remember the good and bad from them. I have taken the photos, but I will be erasing the phone. I don’t need her voicemail; I know what she sounded like.
I have only a few printed pictures of her on display, we never had photos around the house. I’m not sure I want them up, why are they up? They remind me she has gone; she won’t be forgotten anyway. I honestly think they are up because others expect them to be up.
Deepest sympathy cards, away. I’m keeping them for six months but why, because I’ve been told I’ll see how I feel at the end of the month.
I have experienced anger, anger that she has left her precious things behind, things I have no attachment to. We could have sold or gifted to family while she was well. It’s all just stuff. Now I have to deal with it alone and I will.
I no longer say good morning or goodnight to her, she’s not here.
And finally, I have met someone. I never meant to meet anyone. It’s fantastic, I am alive, we talk, we laugh, we tease, we touch. Nothing more intimate than a short kiss and long hugs. She enjoys my company and I hers. We are at a distance from each other and time is precious with her.
She stated a fantastic thing, sometimes holding on does more damage than letting go. A mantra that I followed but needed reminding of. I am not a hoarder, archivist or keeper of trinkets, my wife was, everything I need is in my head or that of my friends and family. They will remind me of the things I forget, I will remind them of the things I remember.
So here I am 4 hours after writing the above, it’s all done, the wardrobe and the easy things. Just the items of value to list and sell.
I’ve been out the front with the neighbours scattering some wildflower seeds. Two short emotional moments but nothing unbearable. I could have avoided the street, but I faced it.
I’m ready to depart this train..

2023.05.29 14:54 DrinkShneChai Book review: Looking for the Enemy: Mullah Omar and the Unknown Taliban by Bette Dam
So I recently finished reading this book as I wanted to know more about the man Mullah Omar himself.
I found it a really interesting book, and I think it is well researched. The author is a Dutch woman who spends significant amount of time in Afghanistan interviewing people (including Taliban members) and visiting places people never really go to (Uruzgan/Zabul/rural Kandahar).
If you are familiar with the roots of the Taliban, much of the information should not be a surprise tbh. Such as how the Taliban emerged, and how they became popular. But I will summarise the main points of the book here:
- The Taliban emerged around the time of enormous Mujahideen infighting, with Rabbi/Hekmatyar and other groups fighting it all out in Kabul after the Soviets were defeated.
- The Taliban movement itself emerged literally from toll collectors inconveniencing drivers on the main roads of Kandahar. Religious students formed and organisation to challenge these toll collectors who were corrupt and working under drug barons.
- Mullah Omar led the charge and freed the roads, and did so all over Kandahar. Peace was being established in the regions of Kandahar.
- This was not unnoticed by people in Kabul. In fact, many of them leveraged the Taliban and gave them cash if they thought the Taliban could get them on their side.
- Mullah Omar was a deeply religious man, who often believed in his Sufi inspired Islam, that he was visited by God to implement strict Sharia all over Afghanistan.
- Probably the biggest stumbling block of the Taliban movement was not being able to get UN recognition. Part of the reason for that was the uninvited stay of Osama Bin Laden, who the Taliban didn't really like and didn't really want. Mullah Omar couldn't remove Bin Laden because his Arab fighters were vital to the Mujahideen cause against the Soviets, and he would lose face. The Taliban did almost everything apart from literally deport Bin Laden.
- The Pakistan-Taliban links were not as secure as initially thought. There is no doubt Pakistan tried to influence the Taliban but I believe that Mullah Omar and his close group of people around him resisted Pakistanis. (Note: This is talking about the 1990-2001 Taliban movement. The current Taliban has extensive links to Pakistan, Mullah Omar's son, Mullah Yaqoob, apparently has family in Karachi).
- The US went into Afghanistan after 9/11 and smashed up everything, they cut off all links to the Taliban. The Taliban tried to surrender and work with Karzai, the new President, but was not allowed to. Karzai recognised this mistake but couldn't do anything about it. In Afghanistan, ideology is less of a thing. That's why people swapping from Pro to Anti Talbian is not seen as a big problem.
- Mullah Omar led a recluse life after going into hiding. He mainly stayed hidden, for years, in a rural area in Zabul, where he died. He actually abdicated power to another Taliban leader, but stayed in communication via messengers.
- Mullah Omar died in Zabul (not Karachi)
If I remember further points, I'll comment them, but I think that covers most of the book. It's a pretty good book, and I respect the author who engaged with the Pashtuns in Afghanistan for the true story. Too often, Persian speakers who are more educated and can speak English, dominate the narrative of Afghanistan/Taliban. It is good to get the Pashtun perspective on Afghanistan/Taliban.

2023.05.29 14:54 enjoialien Angel
I met an angel. She was so beautiful, but she became dark and bitter at the pain she was experiencing from the evils of this world. She wanted to be happy and safe, but the twisted thoughts that came from the deepest parts of her mind were not allowing her to be, so she pushed away the ones that loved her, fearing that if she ever got close with someone again, she would only feel the pain like she had before, and then the fear just kept her locked up inside her head and from the world, not allowing herself the love she deserves because she’s already proven to herself that she will never be enough, so why should she bother? But then she has glimpses of optimism that it’ll be better, and she begins to crawl out of her shell just a little bit at a time so she can still feel safe. I admire her because I too know how harsh this world can be, but I only want to be by her side and help her become whole again. That's what she deserves

2023.05.29 14:54 whatuwanthuh1 Guys, how do you value "vacation" flings?
If you meet a girl who's on vacation in your homecountry that you find attractive and feel safe and comfortable with, show her around the area you live in and treat her like a girlfriend with the intent of staying in touch, how are you able to separate that situation from what's going to happen when she leaves?
Do you think it's not that serious because she's leaving and just live in the moment, or do you think of a potential future with her, even though the situation is only temporary?
Under what circumstances would you be willing to meet up with her again if she returns to your country, and would you forget about her if you met someone new in the same type of situation?
