I will gladly try and adapt as I can. I am still learning. Also if you wish to be a part of the alerts list let me know. >>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>>> Bessy and Arrow were sitting in their beds. Audrey having purchased them their own. It seemed Audrey was at work… or dealing with whatever was going on more now than ever. The fluffies had not gone outside since the incident at Pete’s. “Ou Fink mumah mad at Bessy?” Bessy sighed. Her belly had gotten quite big in the past two weeks, she looked ready to pop at any second. “Mumah nu mad?” Moca peeped up. He was getting a bit bigger now, could no longer sit upon Arrow’s back easily. He however did climb out from Arrow’s bed to cuddle Bessy and give her huggies, “Mumah wuv Ou, Moocha Wuv Ou, and Fwuffy Mumah wuv Ou.” he nuzzled her. He no longer needed milk and seemed to be able to eat the fluffy kible just like the adults now. Arrow nodded, “Mocha wite. Mumah no mad at Bessy. Bessy Gud fwuffy. Bessy Gud Soon Mummah.” “Why Bessy and Over fwuffys no woud out?” The black and white fluffy asked. Arrow was silent a moment then puffed out her cheeks, “Meanies wiff bright clicks. Mumah no wike dem. Must be Meanies. Mumah pwotec us fwom Meanies.” she got up and nosed over the food bowl to Bessy, “Ou gud fwuffy. Awwow Gud wuffy. Mocha Gud bebah.” Bessy gave a small nod and leaned over and began to eat some of the kibble, thankful she didn't have to get up while she was so big. “Mocha no Bebah ani mores, Mocha eat big fwuffy kibbews, an Hewp bessy and Fwuffy Muma.” he puffed out his brown cheeks at her. His nose and hoof marks started to look a bit darker and more black then the dark brown when he was born. Even his coat was starting to look a darker brown resembling chocolate then the carmel it once was. Arrow smiled and nuzzled him, “Mocha Stiw Awow babeh.” she began to clean him. Moha still had his cheeks puffed… but seemed to slowly unpuff them as he leaned into the cleaning and closed his chestnut brown eyes. He was still somewhat young, not an adult yet, so it seemed he was still easy to calm from the grooming. Arrow would circle a bit before carefully snuggling up beside Bessy and continuing to clean Mocha. Bessy sniffled, “hope wite. Bessy no want go back to cowld pwace it scawy.” she shivered and snuggled into the other fluffies closing her eyes and seeming quite thankful for the heat and company. This was not the first time Bessy had mentioned the Cold place to Arrow… and Arrow was beginning to worry. She figured she should tell Audrey when she got home. She looked at the clock and she could not read it… but the long thing and the short thing were not in the right places. The short thing was near the five and the long near the 6, Recently Audrey would not come home till the short was near or past the 10 and the long hand near the 6. She Closed her eyes after cleaning Mocha and he was asleep and began to help Bessy groom some of her fur, Knowing the other had been having a few issues with leaning or moving to get it done since their belly got so big. .................. Meanwhile. Audrey was doing her best to try and find a way to keep the paparazzi from pestering her at work. Or others coming up to her while at work… Thankfully now the front desk lady was almost a friend. Ever since it got out she had a Cow fluffy it seemed some wanted to try and buy Bessy off her, or try to offer money for one of her litters or… well some threatened her saying she should let them go and she was no better than Cruela De Vil. She was thankful her address was confusing to some, and that there was a key card needed to get into the main building as well as to use the elevator or get into a hall from a stairway. Her Landlord lectured her about having pets and informed her there was a 500 pet deposit fee, as well as her rent would go up $50 each month given what type of pets there were. Over all… not the worst she had been expecting from them. They had asked at one point to see her fluffies, which… again threw Audrey off, she never had really gotten close with her landlord, the lady had always seemed cold or standoffish. But Now she seemed to want to get to meet the fluffies at least. There was a message over the intercom at work, “Fluffy owner Audrey… line one. Repeat, Fluffy owner Audrey line one.” Audrey frowned her brows… ok this was getting ridiculous. She called up to the front desk, “What the hell?” she asked exasperated. “Yaaah… we got some Men in black looking people up here… they claim they have an appointment with you?” Audrey frowned her brows again, she was starting to wonder if she would have permanent wrinkles there, “I'm at work… I don't have an appointment with anyone. Tell them to get lost before we call the cops for trespassing.” The secretary chuckled, “yaaaah i don't think that will scare them but… i'll try. If I page you again…” “If you page again I'll just outright call the cops for you. I don't have time to be harassed at my work. It's rude, and i have residents to take care of.” She growled and slammed the phone down. She took in a calming breath. “Your ex?” a woman's voice spoke. Audrey turned and smiled, “No Miss Alain.” she said to the lady in the wheelchair. “Good, I was going to tell ya how to kill ‘em and get away with it.” she chuckled and began to use her legs to move the chair down the hall amused by her own words. Audrey shook her head smiling, at least her residents could help distract her from all this chaos. End of the shift. Audrey was leaving work, after the new security checking for any lunatics in the bush before She stepped out She thanked him and he gave a proud no. She began to walk to her car, Despite the money she had been given it was still an older car… looking as if it had a bit of rust here or there but it ran and was reliable, she pulled out the keys when she heard it a car door open and someone called out to her. “Miss? Might we have a word with you?” Audrey let out a groan and turned around quite irritated, “Do you people ever leave others alone? Seriously I get pestered outside my Home, i get pestered WHILE working, i get pestered when i leave. When do i get to go back to my normal life?” The two had stepped out of a van… that had a rainbow and massive decal on the side… how did she miss it? She groaned.. This was it… this was where she died and someone found her in the ditch 3 months later in an unsolved case. She huffed, well it would be an interesting story. “We're with Hasbro. We noticed… some internet news recently.” he pulled out a work badge. And showed her. Audrey sat down on the hood of her car crossing her legs and looked bored and irritated with her life at the moment, “And?” The second spoke up, “Can you confirm or deny that you have a Cow Fluffy in your possession?” She shrugged, “And if i do?” The two looked at one another then to her, the second spoke “You would be offered a Large amount for them.” “Or even for their foals.” the first spoke up. Audrey rubbed her forehead, “Look… I'm not about to hand over Bessy or any of the babies she has… Not so long as they are living. So… If… when Bessy has lived a long life, and she passes. I would… MAYBE be willing to give you people her body. MAYBE.” she emphasized, “And as for her foals i don't even know what they are yet. Or if they are alive… if she has a stillborn i’ll let you folks know… till then… Would some of her fluff for a sample or whatever get you people off my back?” The two seemed to exchange looks, one shrugged giving a nod then the other looked to her, “That would be quite reasonable. And as stated we would be willing to pay your aid in Hasbro’s productions and development.” Audrey let out a sigh and nodded relaxing a bit, “Thank the gods. I was worried this was going to be an issue. Poor Bessy is already a sweet thing. I can't stand to think of her life in a cage or one of her babies.” She shook her head. She looked at the two men, “I'm about to head home, If you want… you can follow me, I will go in and get the sample meet you outside my house and we can be done with all this right? I don't have to worry about being whacked or dead in a week and my fluffies missing will i?” The one began laughing, “lady you watch too many Old Gangster movies.” Audrey snorted, “Ya probably. Not often you get a big corporation coming to your job and then waiting for you in the dark parking lot at night. Both wearing sunglasses even though there is no sun.” They nodded, “It seems to help with negotiations we feel.” She snorted, “you look like the blues brothers.” she began to get into her car and rolled down the window, I’ll pull out and wait for you.” she stated. They gave a nod and seemed to watch her intently as she pulled out of the space and pulled up a bit giving them room to pull out. She kept her word and waited. She knew full well she did not have the ability to fight Hasbro if they really wanted to shake up her life. So least she could do for Bessy and Her other fluffies was play nice… for now. When they were Ready she drove at a respectable speed making sure to park every so often if she got separated she did not want to piss off the fellows who seemed willing to just take som fur and fuck off till Bessy’s death. When they got there, Audrey got out and locked her car, there was more paparazzi waiting for her and she just groaned. The two Hasbro workers actually put themselves between her and the Cameras and ushered her into the building or stayed there till she unlocked the door and entered with her. Audrey paused thinking after the door closed then looked at them, “That was slick… i told you guys i would bring it down but now you managed to get in… Good for you. But i'm not about to let you into My apartment looking all MIB, Bessy is skittish and pregnant you would probably scare her, And i don't think a pregnant Mare or… is it heifer in her case?” “Hefner” both corrected. “Thank you, I don't think a pregnant heifer should be scared by the men in black.” Audrey finished. Both looked at one another and gave a nod, “Fair enough.” they took off their glasses and blazers. One revealing he had rainbow Hasbro suspenders with a few pins on it, and the other just had purple over their white shirt. Audrey blinked and looked to them both and sighed, “Alright… fine. You can come in and see her. But the moment she is stressed you both leave. Am i clear?” They gave a nod seeming pleased with this. The landlord stepped out from her little glass office with a ball bat, “Audrey you ok?” her voice was rather rough, and deep probably from years of smoking. “I'm ok. But if you hear me yelling feel free to come up with that.” She chuckled. The landlady gave a nod and went back into her office narrowing her eyes at the two men. The one’s eyes had gone wide and looked away. The other seemed to have not even looked at her, Which saved him the sight of seeing a elderly woman in a Nighty, or moomoo.. Whatever it was that was faded and worn so thin some bits… were nearly visible. Audrey had become rather blind to that after the second month so seeing the landlady didn't bother her. She led them up the steps and paused at her floor. She looked at them and sighed, “Look… I will level with you. Every instinct in me is saying not to do this, Big corporation… people or pets sometimes go missing when dealing with that… but i really do want to ensure Bessy has a good life, so again i'm willing to work with you guys, but i do NOT want any harm to fall to her or her young or to any of my fluffies is that clear?” The other chuckled, “What? You really have another fluffy that is considered an oddity? Seriously we heard about the bat fluffy hoax.” Audrey sighed, “It's not a hoax, I have two… bat fluffies. So i think you both can see why i'm spooked but wanting to try and work with you…” They exchanged glances then looked at her confused, “We… were never working on bat fluffies.” he got elbowed by the other. Audrey shrugged, “Well I have two. SO if you were working on them or not, there is at least one line of them.” She then unlocked the door groaning, she really felt in her gut this was a bad idea… but again she was trying to give them what they wanted or rather enough to keep them at bay. “Do we have your permission to Record this interaction with them?” the first asked. Audrey thought as she was unlocking the door, then turned to him, “So long as it does not end up on any form of media. I already have enough fools trying to harass me over trying to breed her with their fluffies. This pregnancy was an accident, and I don't plan to breed her unless she wants more young later on. And…” She glanced about and shrugged, “Till after I get a home where it's more suited to having fluffies.” They both gave a nod, “Reasonable. This will be used solely for research within Hasbro i assure you.” he already had his phone out and ready to record. Audrey open the door and Arrow was already there waiting for her, “Mumah Awdwy, Awow have qwestion.” She then saw the men behind Audrey and hissed spreading her wings backing up as if to try and put herself between them and Bessy. “Easy Arrow, These fellows here just came to see you and bessy. And maybe get a snip of your fluff, they heard it was really soft and wanted a bit to see for themselves.” The men smiled one kneeling down to hold out a hand, “So… your name is Arrow is it?” Arrow kept her cheeks puffed and sniffed his hand a little but backed off sitting directly between them and Bessy. As if she did not trust them. The two looked at Audrey who was putting down her keys and getting a drink she shrugged, “She is a bit standoffish with strangers. When i found her in the streets she was crying saying she wasn't a “monstah,” and she was “a Gud Fwuffy” so i have no idea what happened to her before i got her. They nodded seeming to find this a reasonable explanation. “When did you find her?” the one knelt down began jotting down the information, and pulling out a small fabric tape measure and taking a measurement of Arrow’s height. Audrey leaned over watching him quite intently as the other recorded the event. Arrow backed off and hissed again opening her wings. “You may want to let her know what you're doing. She is easily spooked just like Bessy. And again if you stress them out I will ask you to leave.” She stated firmly. Mocha let out a yawn and stretched seeing the two men he seemed to quickly move back opening his own little wings and hissed at them though his sounded undeveloped. As if he had not practiced as much as his Mumah. Bessy now having the small Fluffy moving into her already large belly she let out a yawn before opening her green eyes and looking around. She let out a Startled moo, as she began to try and wiggle out of the bed. The one looked to Audrey, “is… that a learned trait? The Hissing?” Audrey was pushing past him to pick up Bessy and sat down to put the other in her lap so she could pet her, “Your ok sweetheart, You're not in danger. None of you are. These people just wanted to meet you and maybe get some of your fluff.” She glanced at the tape measure and to the guy narrowing her eyes a bit, “Maybe apparently see how tall or big and strong you have grown?” The man smiled, “That's right... I just want to see what big fluffies you are.” Bessy looked at him worriedly but seemed to calm to a shiver in Audrey’s arms. Mocha seemed to cheep and happily trotted over to him, “Me am big fwuffy! Me abwle to eat kibbew aweady.” he said proudly. Audrey smiled, “That's right, Mocha here is getting to be a big fluffy.” She looked to the man, “And to answer your question i think so? He didn't hiss till after a few days after he saw Arrow doing it.” Arrow kept her cheeks puffed as she approached the man, “Me no twust Ou. Ou smew wike bad men. But Awow will Be Gud fwuffy for Mumah. But if Ou Huwt Bebeh or Bessy fwen i gib worstes Hurties.” The man looked to Audrey, “Smarty syndrome?” Audrey snorted, “Not at all, Like i said she is standoffish with new people, and is protective of Mocha and Bessy. But other than that she has never demanded anything and has listened to me. None of the other Symptoms of Smarty syndrome. Though she does have a tendency to Puff her cheeks at Unknown Fluffies depending on how they react.” After a bit of time and gaining trust the two seemed to be giving a mild and non invasive physical, measuring all three. Asking about their diets asking about how long ago Bessy was impregnated and more. By the end of it All three fluffies were falling asleep in the same bed as the two were still talking with Audrey, “So… the small one isnt her foal?” Audrey shook her head, “nope. Not hers at all. You are welcome to check via the fur samples to see if they are related, Like i said i found Arrow on the streets so there is a chance they are related. But Arrow wandered away from me and came back with him. Claiming the mother thought him a poopieh baby and she was going to be his mother now. I said ok.” she snorted and shook her head. The one looked to her, “How… do you suggest we get samples?” Audrey thought and then grabbed 3 plastic lunch bags and the fluffy comb, “I got ya, just … do you have a pen to label the bags?” The one quickly began to search while the other then tapped him on the shoulder with a pen. Audrey gently brushed each out… setting the fur that came off each one into the individual bags. She handed it to him and he began to write a blank check. She raised a brow then looked at them, “Look… like i said, And i hope you have this being recorded, I do not want to give you my fluffies any of them… I want them to have a long and happy life. Maybe once they pass… I will consider giving you their body. But even then i don't know how i feel about that yet as it hasn't happened yet you know?” The one pocketed the samples, “Do you have a vet?” Audrey looked to him and crossed her arms, “I did. But I have been having some issues with them. Mostly getting back in touch with them after an incident where one of their staff tried to abuse Mocha.” They shared a look, “Would you be opposed to using a Hasbro approved Vet?” Audrey looked at the clock, then back to him, “Look… you two seem like nice guys, But it's late, tomorrow i have off. And I would like to sleep in. Right now… For the record, I'm very protective of my fluffies, I have had to deal with people harassing me about them. And idiots thinking I'm willing to sell them. IF… and that is a Big IF, i were to i would need to be in the room with them and no samples to be taken without being priorly informed THAT visit. And if for any reason i feel the situation is unsafe i have the right to remove them from that. But… for details and more… i think another date is more appropriate for all this.” They nodded, “Fair. Here is the check. And our Business Card… if there is a Still born or you wish to sell the placentas feel free to give us a call. And once we talk with our higher ups after this we will be in touch. Thank you for being willing to work with us.” Audrey nodded, “oh you lot can buy the placentas, i don't have an issue with that. Just...the living foals and their mother i'm not exactly willing to hand over to a lab you know?” They both looked at each other and smiled, “Understood, you have a nice day.” they left after that. Audrey sighed and began to get ready for bed now that it was near midnight and the unplaned guests were gone, She no sooner laid her head down… when there was a knock on her door. “Are you shitting me?” she grumbled and went to answer the door. A concerned Land lady was at the door with a bat in one hand and a phone in the other, “ya she just answered.” She leaned over and looked behind Audrey, “Are you alright? I seen them leave in their suits, are you in trouble? Was that the mafia?” Audrey just laughed… this… was not her day.
I've got a mystery on my hands and would welcome som feedback on my thoughts. My paternal grandfather lived his life as Michael Stabo, born August 2, 1921 in Barberton, Summit County, Ohio. This name, birthdate and birth place is reflected throughout his life on documents including his marriage certificate, children's birth certificates, marine corps enlistment and discharge records, parents naturalization applications social security record and his mothers social security application after his fathers 1936 death. (His family search ID is LV15-78X if you want to poke around). His parents were, though now questionable, Michael Stabo and Mara/Mary Cindric. Their 1914 Milwaukee, WI marriage record reflects these first names however we know from immigration records that Michael Sr.'s given name was Fabijan when he immigrated in 1907. Despite having been born in Ohio, Michael had an older sister born in Milwaukee in 1915 and a younger brother born in Milwaukee in 1927. We have pictures of the three of them where the youngest is just an infant. We also have a picture of Michael at 4/5 years. They all grew up in Milwaukee and lived their adult lives there as well. At some point prior to 1930, two female cousins (Catherine and Helen) from his mothers side came to live in Milwaukee from Ohio due to their mother dying in January 1921 and their father Martin (Mary's brother) being "unfit". Michael's mother Mara/Mary had two brothers who lived in Ohio. I have a document written by my father (Michaels son) which says they went to Ohio to find work. However... we find no trace of Michael Stabo being born on or around that date in either Ohio or Wisconsin! I believe there is a biological connection because one of his cousins (Mother Mary's nephew) shows up on my DNA results in a proper range to be my first cousin twice removed (which makes sense as my Grandfathers cousin).> However... we also find no trace of Michael Cindric being born on or around that date in either Ohio or Wisconsin! Mary had two brothers living in Ohio... there was Martin whose wife (and mother the Catherine and Helen) died in January 1921 of "general septic condition" and "...abcess". Martin shows up as an inmate in the 1940 census. The other brother was (another) Michael - who had a couple of failed marriages and eventually moved from Ohio to Milwaukee. There was another brother as well (father of the cousin I am genetically related to) who went straight to Milwaukee from the boat, had a life long marriage and several children. To make things more mysterious - Michael always told his children he couldn't get his birth certificate because the courthouse burned. This isnt something you could pull off now... but in the pre-internet era it certainly would have been a good way to stop a dig! Barberton and Summit County have no record of a courthouse fire. Thanks for your time! Edit: Additional Info Michael Sr & Mary and children show up in the 1920 and 1930 censuses in Milwaukee.
2020.07.10 21:55 TheOnlyFallenCookieThe Last Day, Day 200 + 1.000 Sub Celebration
Zora Princess It has happened. I now posted daily for the past 200 !! Days on this Subreddit! A
BIG THANK YOU <3
To All of you for Making this possible. When i Started in late December 2019 (before Covid) I had no Idea what i was doing. I just saw this Sub getting active again with a lot of Adult rated art and for som reasn, this made me upset. I Rallyed to u/DetuPengu (The Original Creator and rime Mod of this Sub) to get the Nsfw Art away from this Sub. I also Started Posting SFW Art to facilitate this Change. And now we are here. 200 Days later. I still cannot believe it. This wouldnt have been possible without all of you. At first my Goal was to post daily till BOTW2 Releases (Because then i planned on locking myself away till i finish the game), but i realised later that this would be a rather utopian oal, espicially through the fact that we havent heard anything new in the last year. So i moved the Goal post to the day we get a Release Date. But the last time this happened for Botw it got pushed back by a year again. Then i wanted to stop as soon as we hit 1 thousand Subs, but this happened to soon, so now i am stopping on the 200th day of uploading Mipha Content in a row. But dont worry! The Sub wont get deleted or anything. It is simply me stopping the daily Uploads. I realised that a Long term Project of Daily Uploadds wouldnt be possible, as we are nearing slowly but steadily the maximum of Mipha Art on the Internet. Espicially with the increased traffic (as evident by the 3 reposts in less than a week). I could push on Maybe 200 more days easily, but since i get most my pics fromPinterest this seems bad, as the users who upload there erally suck at providing the original source. And we hit a Point where it became really dfficult to look through every post again, to insure no double Posts. Furthermore I strongly believe, that crediting the original Artist is a must go! We cannot just enjoy stuff without thanking those who made it. Espicially for our very niche community. I mean… Mipha has less than 1 hour of screen time/mentions in a single Game from the Zelda series. It is Pretty impressive how far we came despite that. Lets just say there are Subs out there About more popular anime characters with less daily traffic. But this also means, that i probalby see our future more on the meme side (there was an awesome "The Tragedy of Princess Mipha the Wise (full version in the comments)" than of only the fan art. Because...It is only a fictional character afterall. And i felt sometimes dumb and... strange seeing how some People engage with the Character of Mipha on an emotional Level. (But if anyone has a link to a purchasable Mipha Body pillow, then please share it) Anyway. The real reason i am not going to post daily anymore is to insure that i find the Creator of all the art i share on here. However, i you then still want Mipha Content i refer You to my Pinterest Mipha Collection where i store all the otential art i come across on Pinterest. Otherwise I use Twitter, Pixiv, Newsground and Deviantart and look for the Mipha or ミファー Tag (the Japanese form of writing Mipha). I think this will also help gameking707 ( u/gamingking707 ) .
1.000 Sub Celebration!
Enough About me, back to the Celebration! It is time for a Sub banner, so please share your favourite Mipha Fanart with linked creators and I shall throw together a Banner i Photoshop. But if you want to do one yourself then no worries, we shall make a contest! What are your thoughts? I first wanted to do a give away, but I aint got any Money. Thank you all so much again! You made this time truly Special!
2020.06.29 22:18 rdwo97Were all or some of the three teenage boys who all mysteriously disappeared in three different locations in southern Norway in December 2001 and later found dead murdered?
I originally posted this to /norge (here, in Norwegian). However, I think it merits international attention. In December 2001, three young boys disappear in this peaceful Scandinavian country in less than a month. They are all found dead not long after, police rule that no foul play had taken place, and the cases totally forgotten. Nothing has ever been written in the Norwegian media about the cases ever since. Nothing. However, as you can see, there are many circumstances that are very strange in at least two of the cases. Norwegian police aren' exactly known to be persistent in their work. The possibility that they have been happy to "close" cases as accidental deaths to avoid further work is definitely plausible, and it's no exaggeration to say that Norwegian detectives in 2001 were not on par with the FBI. As an example, a 2011 death of a 9 year old girl was ruled and closed as a suicide - three years later the case was revisited due to a whistleblower police officer, and the stepfather convicted for murder.%20ble%20funnet,politiet%20saken%20som%20trolig%20selvmord.&text=Politiet%20mente%20DNA%2Dfunn%20flere,til%20drap%20p%C3%A5%208%2D%C3%A5ringen) Below you have a Google translation of the post in /norge (translating manually will take too long). I'd love to hear your thoughts on these cases. -------------------- In December 2001, three young boys disappear under similar circumstances in southern Norway. Everyone has been to a party, drunk, and found dead outdoors some time later, under unclear circumstances. One of the cases has been investigated as a murder, but later abandoned. The other two have circumstances that make it possible to ask whether the police have investigated the cases well enough. Night until December 2, 2001: Jonas Fredbo (16) from Sandefjord is on a class trip in Hemsedal. He and two friends go to the Storehorn Aparthotel in Ulsåk in a cab to party. Jonas lives at Hemsedal Inn. At 2 o'clock in the night, they are asked to leave, and Jonas is left to argue with the doorman while the comrades go. It is the last safe observation of the boy. A few months later he was found dead several kilometers away, in the forest opposite Ulsåk - in the opposite direction of Hemsedal center, where he was going, in dense pine forest The same night that Jonas disappeared, a young boy was handcuffed in the same hotel after a confrontation with the doormen, and carried away in a van and knocked up, before finally being able to get himself out: https://www.dagbladet.no/nyhetejeg-ble-kidnappet/65774046 There were 30 doormen/bouncers from the same company in Hemsedal this weekend. A charge was later taken against three or four guards for bodily harm and kidnapping for the incident that night: https://www.vg.no/nyheteinnenriks/i/5VVyLK/doervakter-tiltales-for-vold A short time later, it comes to light that the cops have been investigating the case as a homicide. A named person from Sandefjord, who this weekend had been in Hemsedal, had been investigated in the case and had suspected status. His car had been examined by four dogs, all of which indicated that the car had been used to carry a corpse. It is not said, at least not directly, whether this was one of the doormen: https://www.vg.no/nyheteinnenriks/i/7lnekv/jonas-saken-etterforsket-som-drap The case was dismissed as "no criminal offense proven" despite this. The police could not rule out that something criminal had happened, but could not prove it. Since 2002, the case has been quiet, and one or more killers may be on the loose. Night to December 22: Magnus Stangeby Hasleto (19) from Sandvika is on christmas leave from Military Police School, and is DJ at a party with 400 participants in the BI basement in Sandvika. He is last observed at. 03.30 when he gives a good night hug to a girl. Two weeks later he is found dead right by, in the Sandvika River. The autopsy report shows he drowned. The result of the autopsy means that the police will not investigate the matter further. However, that conclusion is very thin, considering the other circumstances of the case. The police theory was that he had tried to cross the river to take a shortcut home. That is quite unlikely. For those familiar in Sandvika, he was found between BI-park and Leif Larsen's road. Magnus lived at Valler. There is a bridge right by in the same direction as he should go, and where he was alleged to cross the river it is only a steep slope up to Leif Larsen's road. Not a place to cross the river. Also, there was no ice on the river that night, but open. Then of course it is quite unlikely that he may have tried to cross the river. He was only dressed in a t-shirt when found. He had left his sweater and jacket on the night out. The temperature this night was 12-14 minus degrees. Who puts out on the way home without taking either sweater or jacket? Even more special is that he also did not bring the bag he had with him where he kept CDs for his DJ. The bag contained so many CDs that it was so heavy that he needed help getting it on. The value of the CDs was estimated at a total of NOK 50,000. The bag was not to be found on the premises, it had disappeared. Some time later, the bag was found locked in a locker on the spot, after the person who locked it in had advised the police about it, a week after the news of the disappearance came out. However, the CDs were not to be found in the bag. These were handed over to the police at a later date by another person, who is unclear whether was properly questioned. The deceased was described as a person who had been in several quarrels before and could have a provocative manner. About. half a year in advance, he had been threatened to be killed on the Internet. He had reported the case to police, but later withdrew the report. The night he disappeared he was in a quarrel with a boy gang at the night out, who had perceived him as cocky. He had been threatened with being beaten up several times, and had even told others who were present that he thought someone would come get him. The boys were thrown out. Police identified the boys, who had no other alibi than each other's explanations that they were traveling back to Oslo and had afterparty after being thrown out of the place. Despite all these mysterious circumstances, the case was put to death after the autopsy report came. No media has ever written more about the case. It still deserves closer attention. There is something that does not agree that this is a mere drowning accident. December 27: Lars Gillesen Hogsnes (17) from Tønsberg is at a private party in a residential house on Nøtterøy. At 22.30 he puts on his jacket and leaves the party, without even saying. He is found dead in the sea a few months later. The autopsy report showed he had drowned and the case was not investigated further. Lars had talked about going to a pub in downtown Tønsberg, but his friends thought it would be natural if he told him he was leaving. He was also not observed on the way to the center. During the period around the disappearance, several sightings were made of suspicious dark cars that stood still and / or followed younger boys in the area. On one occasion, a boy was tried to be dragged into a car by strangers. I have not found as much detail about this latest case as the previous two, so it is not possible to correct the same suspicion that something that has not been investigated well may have happened here. But it is special that a boy suddenly disappears from a party without saying, and is later found dead in the sea some distance away. What is weird is that there are three almost identical disappearances in less than a month, with fatal outcomes, and partly the circumstances of at least the first two cases. There are too many red flags for this to be "common" disappearance cases where full persons with poor judgment freeze to death or in a river. Does anyone remember / know the cases better than what I have managed to bring up in the media archives, or have any thoughts on the cases?
2020.06.15 12:44 surfergrl89Jeg har oplevet racisme og diskrimination i Danmark. Er der måske andre?
Jeg er normalt kun en lurker her på Denmark; og kun har postet et par gang, når jeg har spørgsmål om kultur, politik osv. De sidste uger har jeg været skuffet over, hvordan medierne, sociale medierne og Denmark har reageret til racisme-debatten - ikke fordi jeg er uenig med jer, som laver sjov med "venstrefløjen", den sorte kvinde hvis navn jeg ikke kan huske, or whatever. Men fordi jeg synes, nogle af de jokes I har lavet faktisk er ganske racistisk (uanset hvor meget vedkommende har fortjent at blive kritiseret/lavet sjov med), og at jeg synes, det er foruroligende, at nogle få faktisk påstår, racisme ikke er et problem i DK. Jeg kender ikke meget til danske reglepolitik. Jeg vil hellere ikke sige, at man kan overføre BLM og Amerikanske racisme i Danmark. Jeg vil dog sige, at dem som påstår, at systemisk racisme, soft racisme, og racisme i det hele taget ikke er et problem i Danmark har taget fejl. Måske har jeg taget fejl i min opfattelse. Måske min shitty, ikke-flydende dansk har ført mig til at misforstå de kommentarer, som har "inspireret" mig til at skrive denne post. Måske bliver jeg bare downvoted to hell. Jeg håber alligevel, at I vil lytte. Nej, jeg bliver ikke dræbt af politiet og ja, denne post er en stor fallacy i sig selv, da den kun er om mine erfaringer. Forhåbentligt kan det dog vise danskerne og Denmark, at livet ikke er så peachy perfect for de udlaændinge, hvis grund til at flytte her ikke er for at arbejde hos Mærsk/Total. Baggrund: Har boet i DK i 3 år, mørkhudet Asiat, en forældeen del af familie er Amerikaner. En del af forskellige new commmeforeigners i DK grupper (for social activities and networking). Var journalist og skribent i mit hjemland/i USA. Studerende nu.
Som international-par skulle min danske partner betale en depotisum svarende til ca. 55.000. Forstår godt, at det er for at beskytte velfærdssystemet. Det kan dog diskuteres om den er fair. Heleeeeee processen for at få mig her var en ren mareridt. Og jeg kan ikke beskrive den stress vi følte; samt den trængende angst vi har for min fremtid her (considering DK ændrer regler til familiesammenføring hele tiden) ---- edit: Min pointe med lovene/reglene er, at de er diskrimerende imod dem, som IKKE har råd til sådan et beløb. Ergo diskrimination findes i DK, især hvis man tænker, at minoriteter ofte ikke er økonomisk velstillede. Dvs. nogle reglelove RAMMER IMMIGRANTER HÅRDERE/MERE end danskere; som også gør det vanskeligere for dem at integrere sig i samfundet eller goør bruge af social mobilitet.
Så vidt jeg ved må jeg ikke få dagpenge osv (uanset om jeg har arbejdet/bidraget til skat) - ellers kan jeg blive smidt ud
Som udlændig student på VUC, var vores 10. klasses hold delt i to - danske 10. klasse og udlændinge 10. klasse. Fair nok, da mange udlændinge ikke er flydende. Mange gang har danske studerende full-out NÆGTET at arbejde med en sort eller mellemøstlig student i de fag, hvor vi var blandet sammen. I gruppearbejde var der en tendens for danske elever til at tale over de udenlanske studerende eller fuldstændig ignorere dem. Nogle elever vil rulle deres øjne og talk shit (whispering) om en morkhudet elev, som deltager i klassen (like participating in disucssions with the teacher). Mange, som ikke kunne dansk så godt, forstod ikke at de blev talt ned til/bagtalt om.
Igen på VUC i løbet af vores dansk prøver. Vores udlaænding hold må KUN bruge ordbog. Vi må ikke bruge vores notater, heller ikke spell-check i Word. Det må det danske hold godt. Vores danske lærer har flere gang skrevet til ministeriet om de diskrimenerende regler - uden effekt.
Der er bogstavligt racistiske (eller i det mindste meget ufølsomme) lærer. En samfundsfag lærer har sagt på en grov tone til de mellemøstlige elever - i løbet af diskussion om danskelov - at de burde rejse hjem, fordi muslimer udnytter systemet. Han har en tendens til at kun spørge muslimer i vores hold (ligesom fordi han er suspicious at de ikke har lavet lektieikke har lyttet - selvom de faktisk gør). I slutningen af semesteren - i et hold af 20+ elever - var der kun 5 af os tilbage. Mig, to afrikaner, en anden asiaster, en muslim. Alle (selv min iranske ven som er meget kritisk overfor muslimer) droppet ud, da følte sig diskrimineret imod.
En anden lærer har en tendens til at skælde sorte/muslimske elever ud, hvis de laver noget forkert. Ift. hvordan andre lærer beder f.eks. en larmende student til at daæmpe sig, vil denne lærer sig "sådan gør vi ikke i Danmark!" Efter en klag, har vores lærer sagt, at de ved, hun har en tendens til at skælde KUN udlænding ud, men de ikke rigtig kan gøre noget ved det.
Jeg og min mand (som btw er 3 år yngre end jeg er) har været spurgt flere gange af forskellige danskere om vi har mødt hinanden på internet, om min mand har bestilt mig på nettet som mail-order bride, om jeg - som kommer fra asien - er god til at give massage med happy ending, og andre dumbass stereotyper, som jeg er overrasket over er stadig så udbredt i nutiden.
Den første ting mange af os (i de gruppenetworks jeg er en del af i hvert fald) lå mærk til, da vi flyttet her, er vi bliver i starten behandlet anderledes i supermarkeder, matas, osv. F.eks. vil ekspedienten kun sige hej/god dag til vores danske partnede danske kundere og ikke os - uanset om vi er der alene eller med dem. Ikke en stor ting, men tror det er værd at navne alligevel.
Kender nogle araber, hvis ansøgning om permanent bopæl blev afvist på grund af en trafikbillet eller en parkeringsbøde. Den ene påstår han har betalt den og ved ikke hvorfor politiet siger han aldrig har. Den anden har aldrig modtaget en anmodning om en bøde. Fair nok I guess. Dog stadig overdrevent - især når de har arbejdet og betalt skat.
Kender nogle danskere der bogstaveligt siger, at udspredning af corona er pga. "de mørke", som ikke husker at følge retningslinjerne.
Mine 7-år på Universitet i Filippinerne (B.A. in Journalism, Media Studies and Mass Communications) blev vurderet af uddannelsesstyrelsen som svarende til "2 års erhvervsuddannelse". Nevermind how bullshit this is considering the pensum we have in that Uni/course is much more compassive, difficult, and at a higher level than the C,B,A level subjects in HF here. Universitet var åbent for at give mig en plads - da de fag som jeg havde skulle gerne svare til alt, som uddannelsen krævede og jeg allerede har bestået dansk på A-niveau efter 1 års ophold - indtil jeg meget høfligt bedt om at få en anden vejleder, da jeg mente, ham jeg fik var svarede ikke e-mails/svarede 2-uger sent. Manden lige pludselig "fandt ud af", at han faktisk ikke kan tage imod mig, da han efterhånden har vurderet at min uddannelse alligevel ikke var tilstrækkelig. Af den grund kunne vurderet ham, at jeg ikke må tage en uddannelse hos dem med mindre jeg kan bevise at jeg kan Engelsk (latterligt...min skole er IELTS-certificeret) og tage en fuld 10.klasse-H&F/gymnasial uddannelse. Han aflyste desuden vores kommende face-to-face møde, da, and I quote "Det er ikke noødvendigt mere at ses, da du ikke kan komme ind alligevel." Heldigvis havde jeg en dygtig vejleder i 10. klasse som kæmpede for min sag. Lige pludselig sagde uni-vejlederen, at jeg faktisk kan nøjes med at tage 2-fag som jeg manglede - fremfor hele HF-forløbet, som han først sagde. Men det skete kun fordi en danske vejleder konfronterede ham om det.
Har forsøgt at finde et job mange gange - fra office jobs til tjener. Ved ikke om det kun er a coincidence, men har aldrig nogensinde fået en reply til min ansøgning, heller ikke en interview - INDTIL jeg ændrede nævnet på mit CV til min mands danske efternavn. Pludselig alle steder jeg sendte ansøgning til var interesseret. Samme oplevelser har ALLLLLLLEEEEE de foreigners jeg kender i disse network/newcommer groups.
Da vi skulle blive gift og jeg ikke talte dansk endnu, skulle vi til kommunen for at apple for a wedding ceremony/date. Efter vores møde afsløre min mand til mig at medarbejderen som vi snakket til har sagt til ham på danske FORAN MIG, om han var sikker, at han vil gifte sig med mig, og at han virkelig kender mig, da der er en mulighed for, at jeg er en af dem asiastiske kvindere der gifter sig med hvide mænd for at stjæle deres penge. No fucking joke. En anden asiastiske ven (dog bøsse) havde samme oplevelse i en anden kommune, dog ikke så barsk.
Min mand (som på det tidspunkt vi blev gift var 23/24 år, og skulle derfor få sine foraældres underskrift/tilladelse selvom han er dansk) kunne ikke blev gift med mig medmindre han lavet en pre-nup (hvor der står at jeg må aldrig kunne få hans penge no matter what). Da der skete en fejl med advokaten og pre-nup blev forsinket og kunne være klar en måned efter vores bryllup, blev han tvunget af hans mor til at overføre alle sine penge til hendes konto indtil pre-nuppen var klar. Denne episode skete mørgnen af vores bryllupsdag, hvor han sov hos sin bestman og sov hos hans forældre (som tradition). Hele morgen mens jeg skulle gøre klare til mit eget bryllup var der ikke en eneste der vil snakke med mig (moren, datteren, mormoren). Alle var iskolde, især moren. Hun har siden sagt undskyld for sin opførsel og min mand har siden da annuleret vores pre-nup (som jeg var aldrig imod btw). Nu skal jeg bare sidde during family dinners og lytte til familiemedlemmer beskylde muslimesorte immigranter for dit og dat, der gør galt i Danmark.
Har arbejdet frivilligt hos en STOR landsdækkende NGO, der beskytter ofre af domestic violence. Har mødt et par danske journalister, der ruller øjnene over the high numbers of non-danish women abused by danish partners; og der var en danske kvinde med en høj position i en virksomhed, der sponsoredede os, som udtrykkede sin fornærmelse over en afrikansk dreng, der ikke vidste hvordan at bruge kniv/gaffel.
edit: der er flere instanseepisoder, men jeg har skrevet denne post i en time og er nødt til at tage af sted
Jeg ved, at denne post er emotionelt ladet fremfor at være baseret på statistik/research/whatever. Jeg er også klar over, at jeg slet ikke er undertrykt og har mange muligheder ift. minorititer i andre lande. Jeg håber stadig, at I overvejer, at Danmark ikke er et perfekte, racisme/diskriminations-fri land. Mange udlænding har sandsynligvis oplevet "små," irriterende diskrimination, som har gjort livet vanskeligere for dem i forskellige grader. Jeg håber, I giver plads til dem, som ikke har oplevet den Danmark, som I har; som har en anden opfattelse af et land, som vi elsker og respekterer, men som nogle gange føler som ikke landet ikke elsker og respekterer os. (Jeg taler overhoved ikke for hele minoritetsgruppen, bare for mig selv og dem jeg kender, som har haft samme foølelseoplevelser). Det er ikke for at sige, at DK er et lorte sted. Tværtimod. Det er hellere ikke for at sige Danmark og alle danskere er racistiske. Man kan dog ikke bare lave memes om, at racisme ikke findes i Danmark. Og jeg synes, hvis jeg skulle været ærlig, at mange danskere er ufølsomme med deres ord/argumentejokes - og disse samme mennesker virker ret defensiv om Danmarks "progressiveness", når konfronteret med andre meningeopfattelser. PS Der er en ung mand, som jeg følger, som har delt mange links om research/artiklestatistikker mht. racisme i Danmark: https://www.facebook.com/rbrygger; her er en podcast, som jeg synes var interessant (ikke at jeg er enig i det) https://avisendanmark.dk/artikel/racismeforsker-danskerne-er-selvglade-nationalister-som-ikke-kan-erkende-racisme?fbclid=IwAR0wYgLGgOu0IStjOQHdmVQDhox3uWyo_u8dIbCkW1ncysURVqAvFcl3xy4; her er en essay, som jeg også synes kunne være relevant: https://www.facebook.com/theLLAG/photos/a.493561587401992/2981563645268428/?type=3&theater PPS vil bare tilføje, at jeg også synes, at det virker som om, reaktionen og kritikken til den sorte kvindes “racisme” har været meget mere grov og voldsom end til Paludans (hvor det synes, at viiiiiiirkelig mange danskere forsvarer Paludans bullshit for “ytringsfrihed”). PPPS har slet ikke tid og energi til at tjekke grammaspelling og genlæse hvad jeg har skrevet, so apologies in advance EDIT: JEG HAR GLEMT AT TILFØJE DEN VIGTIGSTE!!!!! Min mands bedstevens bror havde en kæreste fra Australien. De vil gerne flytte her. Efter at ansøge og det hele, ringede han til the department for immigration (or whatever department is in charge of this called) to ask how good the chances of his wife were for being able to move here. Han sagde, at kvinden nægtede at svare; men efter at have presset hende, så sagde hun noget i retning af "Du har ikke noget du skal være bekymret for, hvis din kone kommer fra australien. Det er kun dem, som kommer fra uonskede lande ligesom i mellemøsten, som vil blive afvist." Det hele endte med at processen var for stressende selv for dem, at de blev skilt. (de giftede sig, fordi de havde hørt, det skulle være nemmere for dem at komme her som gift). Hvis i nogen sinde er i esbjerg, find en rock-bar med en bartender, som har været i australien. Han vil sikkert bekræfte denne (dog lad være med at vise denne post for at gemme min identitet lol). EDIT 2: yoooo a few of you guys are really defensive, damn. i'm not attacking denmark, jeez. i never even said i hate danes or that i hate being here or that denmark is worse than USA or that denmark is a racist shithole lol. me writing this post is NOT me complaining, regardless of what tone my danish writing gave off. i even outright admitted this post is devoid of statistics and is a big fallacy in itself, since it's just a bunch of hastily listed first-hand experiences and generalizations with no scientific basis. i'm just suggesting that there's another side of denmark that some of us might not have seen/heard of/experienced - and for the betterment of our society and country, we ought to be open to hearing other people's perspectives. otherwise, we're just hiding the ugly parts of society under a rug and pretending they don't exist (and effectively saying these people also don't exist) - instead of tackling them and finding a solution head-on. just because i like denmark as a whole, doesn't mean i'm gonna shut up if i think there's parts of it that can and should be improved. denmark being good does not equal to it being immune from criticism/improvement. EDIT 3: Skal også nævnes, at vi havde en klassekammerat på HF, der blev smidt ud. Sort, havde baggrund som ex gang member, fattig familie fra somalien (kan ikke huske om han var født her eller om de flyttede da han var en baby). Gik i skole nogle uger efter han blev løsladt; havde lidt PTSD-agtig symptomer når han er i en klasselokale blandt mennesker, men fulgte opgaverne, lektier, m.m. fint! (Lærerne sagde selv, han har potentielle og er klog). Problemet var, at han fik for meget fravær på et tidspunkt for whatever reason (maybe PTSD eller reintegration to society problems eller andre årsager; da han begyndte at pjakke efter en idiot dansk dreng fra et andet hold sagde til ham, skolen er ligeglad med fravær). Smidt ud. Fair nok. Det er reglen jo. To hvide danske piger i samme hold. Har haft meget mere fravær end han gjorde. Præsteret på samme niveau som han gjorde ift lektier osv. Blev ikke smidt ud. Rygterne var fordi, skolen vurderede, at pigernes IQ er høj, derfor kunne de sandsynligvis klare skolen bedre trods fravær (selvom på det tidspunkt havde det ikke viste det endnu, da det skete 2ish måneder efter vi startede skoleåret). Jeg synes ikke, det er fair. Reglene siger jo, at man smides ud, hvis man har X-fravær - no exceptions - apparently unless you're a single, danish mother in her 20s. De fik chance til at vise, at de kan opgaverne trods fravær (og de fortsat med at have fravær mindst to dage hver uge hele skoleåret), men den anden ikke kunne. EDIT 4: Tak til alle som har bidraget til debatten, uanset jeres meningepolitiske holdninger. Jeg vil dog sige, at jeg for a long time syntes, Denmark havde en negativ eller underlig stemning ift debatter og diskussioner. Mange kommentarer opfattede jeg som barsk, grov, uhøflig, immature, provokerende, sometimes not even addressing the topic but just insulting politicians/public figures/etc - selv når brugeren kunne bevise en artikel osv., kunne tonen være hård. Just now with all the criticisms against that black lady, there were jokes about her appearance and weight - also about Paludan, though I personally didn't see those as often. I dismissed that gut-instinct as me being wrong, fordi mit dansk er shit og jeg er ikke flydende, så måske var det bare mig, der havde misforstået noget eller at noget var lost in translation. Nu tror jeg, at jeg havde ret. Især når der har været nogle danskere, som har reached out og udtrykkede de samme opfattelser. EDIT 5 (og forhåbentligt sidste): Saying "Der findes ikke noget forkert i de reglepunkter du har nævnt. Alle immigranter skal går igennem det" is like saying that "All immigrants are affected by these ridiculously tough laws; therefore the laws are not discriminatory since it discriminates against all immigrants equally" lol. The problem isn't having laws per se. Laws for safeguarding are fine. But some laws are dumb as fuck and downright unfair and were clearly made to regulate certain ethnic groups. Tightening certain laws so it affects certain social groups more than others - chiefly for the sake of virtue signaling and gaining populitisk votes - is, actually, a form of discrimination. Where is the logic in not allowing working residents any safeguards against arbejdsløshed? Where is the fairness in denying the visa application of an immigrant who has worked full time and paid taxes for many years (some more than most danes), simply because he was jobless for a few months prior to sending his application? Where is the fairness in that, when someone from EU can get more rights for working/paying taxes in a shorter timeframe? Christ. Did you guys even listen to your own samfundsfag/jura classes? Honestly... EDIT 6: i have not anywhere said that this post is exclusively about systemic racism....... if you wanna get technical with it, i’d call the bullet points about laws and difficulty getting social mobility/access to school etc as institutional racism - whether it’s systemic, too, is a whole other discussion
2020.06.10 15:45 gnivirht_devHow to find the correct yum repo for newer version of a software
Hi guys, There is an issue I encounter from time to time. Project XYZ requires some package but version provided by default yum repos is not high enough. Then I look for som .rpm to install manually or .tar.gz to unpack somewhere to make something work. Is there some experimental repo with latest&greatest software I can install if I really want to? I know that being latest and greatest is not the aim of CentOS, but I'm looking for a more convenient way to make stuff work. Today was an another day I had to search the internet. Some internal product requires CMake >= 3.16 that was released in november 2019 so they break compatibility with CentOS 8 which is unfortunate, but I have what I have so I have to solve it. I had to look a new CMake up, download, manually unpack. Pretty easy, but I would like to be able to install it with yum/dnf if I really want to so the package manager knows about the installation and I'm able to upgrade the package easily in the future if needed. I suspect that there is some maintainer keeping CMake up to date on some repo, but I'm not aware of an easy way to find such repos.
2020.03.13 20:36 emailNanicI[19m] can’t see my future without my girlfriend[17f] but I don’t know I love her right now
I‘v been with my first girlfriend/love for almost 2 years. In the first year she has broken up with me 2 times. I felt depressed and really crushed. I did everything to get her back. But the second time she wrote me 1 week later saying she is sorry and made mistake and she can’t see life with anyone else but me. She was pretty much in control because I was insecure and afraid of loosing her. I refused to take her bak immedeatelly and I said her that after 2 months we could see each other if she feels the same way about me as she claims to. After those 2 incredibly excruciating months of worrying if she has changed her mind we finally met. After a while we started dating again. Everything was awesome. Im 100% she loves me unconditionally. Now we meet 1-3 times per week. It us always a date of some kind, either we go to cinema, restaurant or a coffee shop to talk and enjoy time together. But lately (1.5 months) I’ve started having doubts wether I truly love her. Dating become boring. We don’t talk as much as we did before. Making out is now boring after 3 minutes. I am sometimes happy when she cancels our date. On the other hand I find her very attractive, we don’t argue nearly at all, we have similar views on the future, we both want kids... And what makes me confused even more is that I really want her to be with me at home. Wake up next to her. I fantasise about living with her. And I can’t see my future without her in it. And yet I have som weird feeling something isn't as it should be. I’m not sure wether I don’t see her as challenge as I did at the beginning when she broke up with me and I needed to fight for her. Because of all thise concerns I asked for a brake to figure out what I really want. The break should last about 2 months without contact and without dating other people. Telling it to her was hard and she cried a lot and I could see she was deeply hurt wich made me want to cry as well. I really care about her and I want to love her as much as she loves me. To be clear I‘m not interested in dating other people at all, that is definitely not a problem. I searched the internet for help and found my self trying to justify that I love her. Im really confused. TL;DR I’ve been with my first girlfriend for about 2 years. She loves me unconditionally. And now I am really confused wether I love her or not. I can’t see my future without her and I want her to be mother of my children. But yet something seems wrong, doesn’t feel right. So I asked for a 2 month brake, which started few days ago, by end of which I hope I’m gonna love her as much as she loves me. Thats why I would ask you for your opinion in my issue. Has anyone been in this situation? How do i find out what I really feel without hurting her? I really appreciate your help!
2020.01.11 20:51 ErDrProf69 reasons why I protest against Modi / BJP
Here, I have compiled a list of points that came to my mind against Modi / BJP. This list can be improved, by expanding each point a little, by adding links, by adding new points and by grouping some of the points together or listing them in order of chronology. On each of the following points we can make memes/detailed explanations and distribute on social media.
Open communal politics - you can identify rioters by their clothes
Jamia Milia Islamia attack by police
BHU hounding a newly appointed Muslim faculty
JNU attack in January 2020
Character assassination of Nehru and Gandhi family by false propaganda
Modi openly lied about detention camps
Assam NRC persecution of poor and Muslims
Political appointees in universities and constitutional posts
Deepika Padukone hounding after JNU solidarity visit
Modi degree controversy
Modi suit controversy
Modi M.R.S. Sirisena teleprompter Gaffe
No transparency in election funding. How can they get money for the advertisement blitzkrieg during Lok-Sabha election 2014 and 2019?
Fudging GDP data
Mishandling of economy
Spending thousand of Crores on building statues

I'm sure we would all like to look back on 2019 in kpop with full hearts, but it has been a tough one, hasn't it? It's a jarring experience to even read the top of this post. As a subreddit, we've continued to grow in leaps and bounds, but some of the number stats for certain months are heavy with implications of the scandals and tragedies we became all-too-familiar with this year. As moderators, we did the best we could to manage these challenges, to keep the community informed, to honor the precious artists we lost, and to brace ourselves for the broader public attention that came to our little spot on the internet as a result. Through all of this, our team has succeeded some and failed some and did what we could to adjust to a much larger scale of activity. It has been a learning experience, to say the least. There is, of course, still plenty to celebrate in our community. We reached two major milestones. Our 10 year anniversary passed in July and we hit 400,000 subscribers soon after in August. In Reddit's official 2019 Year in Review we were the 3rd most active music subreddit on the site and the 2nd most active per genre. But if you want to see the best of us, it isn't in our numbers or milestones. It's in every community member who updated the wikis, every participant in thoughtful discussions, generated by clever or important prompts, every helpful translation, every carefully crafted feature that requires so much work behind-the-scenes, every offer of support or comfort to a fellow user struggling with all the heavy news 2019 brought in, and in so many other diverse and lovely ways. We'd like to thank each and every one of you for contributing so much positive content and energy to our community all year. As K-Pop gains more global attention, we need you more than ever to help keep this place both lively and friendly. It's a new decade! Let's make it a better one! We wish you a 2020 with fully-charged electronics, bops aplenty, and all the dreamiest comebacks! -- The Mod Team

2019.10.12 19:02 SEONijmegenLocal SEO: wat is dat?
Local SEO is een effectieve manier om je lokale bedrijf online lokaal te promoten. Het helpt bedrijven om hun producten en diensten te promoten aan lokale klanten op het exacte moment dat ze online naar hen op zoek zijn. Dit wordt bereikt door middel van een verscheidenheid aan methoden, waarvan sommige sterk verschillen van wat er wordt beoefend in de standaard SEO.
Wat is een local search?
Laten we eerst eens kijken naar de verschillen tussen een standaard zoekopdracht en wat bekend staat als een lokale zoekopdracht. Volgens Google heeft 47% van de zoekopdrachten een lokale zoekintentie. Voor dit soort zoekopdrachten, die meestal een locatie omvatten begrijpen zoekmachines dat wat de consument wil zijn Google vermeldingen op basis van locatie en dat is dus precies wat ze bieden in de lokale zoekmachine resultaten pagina's.
Wat zijn lokale zoekmachineresultaten?
Wat lokale bedrijven het meest nodig hebben om het zoekverkeer naar hun websites of door hun deuren te verbeteren is online zichtbaarheid op wat bekend staat als de 'Google 3-Pack'. Dit is het blok van drie bedrijfsoverzichten die onder de kaart verschijnen in de resultaten die worden weergegeven na een Google zoekopdracht met lokale zoekintentie. Je zult merken dat er hier veel anders is dan de standaard organische resultaten, zoals: openingstijden, beoordelingen en zelfs foto's. Hoewel Google slim genoeg is om deze informatie direct van je website te halen is dat niet waar deze elementen vandaan komen. Alles wat in het lokale pakket wordt weergegeven, komt van het Google Mijn Bedrijf bedrijfsprofiel, een cruciaal onderdeel van local SEO dat steeds belangrijker wordt naarmate Google meer zoekopdrachten direct in de SERPs probeert te vervullen. Je GMB profiel kan een groot aantal informatie bevatten die je zelf hebt ingediend, zoals: diensten die je aanbiedt, contactgegevens, bedrijfsomschrijving, categorie en openingstijden, maar het is belangrijk om op te merken dat functies zoals GMB attributen, GMB Vraag en Antwoorden en Google Reviews bijna volledig worden gegenereerd door consumenten. Een belangrijke factor voor succes met lokale SEOis ervoor te zorgen dat je GMB profiel zo up-to-date en accuraat mogelijk is , zodat het een hogere kans heeft om in de Local 3-Pack te verschijnen en betrouwbaar, aantrekkelijk en aantrekkelijk genoeg is om een doorklik te garanderen. https://preview.redd.it/e9qr9j41j5s31.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2c06f33c37b84bdae100737b0edf7f82a0b41f2f
Wat zijn local citations?
Een local citation is elke online vermelding waar je bedrijf met een volledig NAW verschijnt. Meestal is dit een online directory. Local citations zijn bijzonder belangrijk voor lokale SEO het toont Google dat je website en de informatie in je GMB profiel betrouwbaar en up-to-date zijn. We hebben een aantal van de belangrijkste local SEO elementen besproken die helpen om succes te bereiken in lokale SEO. Hieronder een aantal belangrijke local SEO ranking factors
Je website optimaliseren voor lokale SEO
Het 'lokaal optimaliseren' van je website betekent dat je jouw stad, provincie of regio op een natuurlijke manier op je website plaatst. Voor bedrijven met meerdere locaties kan dit betekenen dat er aparte pagina's moeten worden gemaakt.
Je Google Mijn Bedrijf vermelding claimen
Het claimen van je Google Mijn Bedrijf pagina is een belangrijke stap om je bedrijf te helpen bij het weergeven van belangrijke Google services, zoals lokale zoekresultaten en Google Maps.
Het beheer van reviews
Authentieke reviews zijn van cruciaal belang om de kwaliteit van je diensten of services te laten zien en om rankings signalen naar de zoekmachines te sturen dat je website en service vertrouwd en nuttig zijn. De hoeveelheid beoordelingen die je ontvangt, de algemene kwaliteit van de beoordelingen en de autoriteit van de beoordelingssites zelf zijn allemaal belangrijke factoren voor lokale zoekresultaten.
Verkrijgen van kwalitatieve, relevante (lokale) backlinks
Natuurlijk verkregen (lokale) backlinks van gerenommeerde websites helpen zoekmachines om je site te herkennen als een betrouwbare bron van informatie en versterkt het 'prominente' aspect van het lokale zoekalgoritme. Links van lokale kranten, bloggers en bedrijfsverenigingen, evenals local citations, kunnen allemaal helpen om de zichtbaarheid van je zoekopdracht te verbeteren.
Zes redenen waarom lokale SEO diensten je kunnen helpen nieuwe klanten aan te trekken
Lokale klanten wenden zich tot het internet om lokale bedrijven te vinden, op de desktop en op mobiel. Het tijdperk van het gedrukte telefoonboek is voorbij. Nu steeds meer mensen zich tot het internet wenden om informatie over lokale bedrijven te vinden.
Lokale zoekmarketing is zeer doelgericht en duurzaam
De belangrijkste reden waarom mensen lokaal zoeken is om een bedrijf te vinden. De tweede meest voorkomende reden is het vinden van een product of dienst. Veel lokale zoekers zijn op zoek naar een specifieke bedrijfsnaam, maar veel mensen die zoeken hebben geen specifiek bedrijf in gedachten wanneer ze hun jacht beginnen. Door gebruik te maken van lokale zoek tactieken kun je jouw bedrijf beter positioneren en promoten wat je te bieden hebt aan lokale klanten wanneer zij op zoek zijn naar jouw type bedrijf. Er is geen betere tijd om in contact te komen met een potentiële klant dan wanneer zij je echt nodig hebben. https://preview.redd.it/vyx4ihpdj5s31.jpg?width=960&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=d6458075ba74d03cc1fc08ae5873c8e4d0b54b4f
Lokaal zoeken heeft de hoogste conversie niveaus van alle lokale reclamekanalen
Online bedrijfsgidsen tonen een: bedrijfsnaam, adres, telefoonnummer en soms aanvullende informatie. Lokale directories domineren de eerste pagina van veel lokale zoekresultaten. Lokale directory marketing heeft een hogere conversie ratio dan andere meer traditionele reclame opties, tot wel vijftig procent conversie op sommige bedrijfsgidsen. Dat betekent dat door het nauwkeurig vermelden van je bedrijf op kwalitatieve online directory sites je eenvoudig meer leads kunt werven.
Mobiel internet groeit
Steeds meer klanten gebruiken mobiele telefoons of tablets om de beste lokale bedrijven te vinden terwijl ze onderweg zijn. In feite is de mobiele digitale media tijd nu hoger (52%) in vergelijking met desktop gebruik (48%). Lokale SEO heeft betrekking op zowel pc en mobiel internet, wat betekent dat je nooit een potentiële klant mist.
Lokale SEO resulteert in een groot rendement op investering
In tegenstelling tot traditionele print reclame, is er bij lokale SEO weinig exposure verspild. Je bereikt potentiële klanten wanneer ze je nodig hebben. Dit maakt lokale SEO zowel efficiënt als kosteneffectief.
86% van de consumenten vertrouwt zowel op online bedrijfsbeoordelingen als op persoonlijke aanbevelingen
Mond-tot-mondreclame is een belangrijke factor in het succes van veel lokale bedrijven. Verhoog dus de online reputatie van je bedrijf, vraag vertrouwde klanten om een positieve beoordeling over je bedrijf online achter te laten.
Lokale klanten vertrouwen op het internet om informatie over je bedrijf te vinden
Tegenwoordig zijn mensen afhankelijk van het internet om informatie te vinden over alle soorten producten en diensten, of ze nu gebruik maken van traditionele zoekmethoden of, zoals steeds vaker het geval is, het zoeken met spraakgestuurde zoekopdrachten om lokale bedrijven te vinden. Als je bedrijf niet wordt gevonden op de lokale zoekresultaten, zal je nieuwe klanten mislopen. Het implementeren van een verscheidenheid aan lokale SEO strategieën voor je bedrijf kan je helpen om op de internetkaart te verschijnen!

Ku tejto teme som sa uz 2x vyjadril, ako ma mrzi, ze reposty starsieho obsahu vytvorene inou osobou, Instagram posty zahltili tento subreddit a prakticky ho spravili z casti nezaujimavy, preto som ho opustil, ale stale si ho niekedy pozrem, ci sa to zmenilo k lepsiemu a preto pisem par mojich myslienok. Repostovanie na Reddite je bezna vec, lenze odoberatelia tohto subredditu zabudaju, ze Reddit posty sa daju Crosspostovat medzi subredditmi, teda ak sa rozhodnete nieco zaujimave repostnut sem, tak zaroven date aj zdroj odkial post pochadza. Pri postovani z obsahu z Instagramu, by bolo tiez dobre uviest zdroj, aspon v komentarovej sekcii, keby ste si to chceli pozriet na Instagrame. Teraz trosku ku aktualnemu obsahu postov, ktore sa opakuju, aj ked mozno sa drzite popularnej tematiky postov(Gottem, Ricardo, Minecraft...), ale aj to uz je moc a hlavne repetitivne, lebo Gottem sem, Gottem tam, Ricardo tu, Ricardo tam a sem-tam nieco nove, mozno OC, ale zaplave tychto postov sa to strati. Niekedy si hovorim, ako toto moze mat 300+ upvote, ked ste to uz videli davnejsie. Vlastne 2. & 3. pravidlo moze admin vymazat, kedze je na 3 veci. Necakam opat nejaku velku diskusiu v komentaroch, kedze je sanca, ze to opat zapadne, ale nic to nemeni na mojom nazore, ked prechadzam posty tohto subredditu. Nie je postatne sa dostat do videa, ale snaha zabavit komunitu vasim postom, mozno inspirovat a Upvoty si zasluzit bez zobrania, napr. chlapec, ktory robil triky s jojom, Toto je aspon moj nazor, ak chcete sa podelit o ten svoj, tak komentare cakaju len na vas. :) Chcel by som sa este vyjadrit ku teme nepopularnych nazorov, ktore uzivatelia radsej downvotuju, ako by mali danej osobe objasnit informacie, popripade si dany nazor prediskutovat v komentaroch. Je pravda, ze sme na internete, ale aj tak sa mozeme chovat ako normalny ludia, ktory maju aj jazyk(klavesnicu). :) Najlepsie by bolo zaviest par novych pravidiel(nejake inteligentne, samozrejme) a Post Bot-a, ktory bude sledovat pravidla a podla toho informovat uzivatela, ci nieco nezabudom, napr. Ked postnete pozadie a zabudnete pridat velkost pozadia, alebo uviest informacie do komentara, lebo bude tvoj post zmazani. Takto by odoberatelia mohli vytvarat aj nieco vlastne a spravit tento subreddit zaujimavejsi, ako to bolo v jeho zaciatkoch, aj ked tam sa to trosku zvrhlo k horsiemu tiez(Tary, Ondra Vlcek, Adam Kajumi).
Open Data Kit (ODK) is a free and open-source set of tools which help organizations create mobile data collection systems.
The Call/SMS decision by Google was an ill-thought out one, and it has the makings of a decision that will either be reversed, or will be (more likely) kicked further down the curb (to delay reckoning). From what we have seen for last few months (starting with ill-timed decision around Christmas), and with repeated rejection e-mails, Permissions Declaration Forms which are busy-work for anguished devs, Forms which keep changing over time, and Google Developer Console bugs with Form, and prevention of updates - my impression is that Google does not have the manpower to cure this issue. Either that, or we have two groups of people there - one group who made the decision, and another group who is intent on making that first group fail. So far we have heard from the early dev voices - we have yet to hear from the devs who moved late. Here is a quick summary to bring you up to date:
That way, no matter where you download an app from, you know it’s been checked by Google Play Protect.
EDIT: in addition, Google rejects apps if they point to a website that has a version of the app with prohibited features. The full version of app should not exist on any reachable part of website. This means if app points to website, they cannot offer full version from there. This is a projection of Google power beyond the store: https://www.reddit.com/androiddev/comments/aqgc5j/_/egglui7
EDIT: It gets worse. If a few app bans lead to an account ban, not only is this a life-ban, Google will also come looking for your associates and your family. This is one reason why ad/search arm should be separated from store arm - it gives Google exceptional power to profile the public. Here is some background on how the "associated account bans" work - a company can get banned, because one developer has a friend who got banned - a wife can remain banned because of her husband, and the life-ban will last well after divorce:
EDIT: Here is a argument why privacy is not Google's main concern. Google has engineered internet permission as implicitly granted (user is not asked for consent). In contrast the offending call/sms permissions are explicit (user is shown run-time permission for approval). How Google engineered for lack of internet privacy:
EDIT: Those filling out the Permissions Declaration Form (which morphs over time, and which devs try to second-guess) may find similarity with this quote from The Demon Haunted World by Carl Sagan (just saw this in another thread):
"I have a foreboding of an America in my children’s or grandchildren’s time - when the United States is a service and information economy; when nearly all the key manufacturing industries have slipped away to other countries; when awesome technological powers are in the hands of a very few, and no one representing the public interest can even grasp the issues; when the people have lost the ability to set their own agendas or knowledgeably question those in authority; when, clutching our crystals and nervously consulting our horoscopes, our critical faculties in decline, unable to distinguish between what feels good and what’s true, we slide, almost without noticing, back into superstition and darkness."
Totally understand the need for limiting the use cases for sending SMS, but if apps that use SMS for physical safety or emergencies are whitelisted, seems like helping make sure millions of kids are vaccinated from polio should be allowed too.
2019.01.29 12:19 susreyMy (21F) significant other (30M) says he wants our relationship but his text so something so much different.
I (21F) will be dating my boyfriend (30M) for two years soon. You'll need som background info for any advice on how to go about this. Please accept everyone is human and he make mistakes. Jan of 2018 he lost his job. I was the only one working (at a hotel for $9/hr) and he was looking for a job. Our sex life wasn't much. Once a month or every other month. He then became depressed, but I kept paying the bills and keeping our life moving. He didn't get a job for 6 months. He would use my mother's credit cards that I am a card holder of two accounts. He would use it to go get energy drinks, dip, gas, and fast food. Now during those 6 months he wasn't affectionate towards me in anyway. He slept on the couch in our room due to his back problems. Now I will admit I did use the credit cards as well to help finishing paying of a bill after my account was literally empty. I also used it to buy food at the grocery store. We soon became behind on rent. Thankfully his sister (40F) was somewhat the owner of the property, But soon after my mother (51F) offered us her basement for $300 a month and it included everything. I wouldn't have to pay electric, internet, and water like I had been. We decided to move, but before we moved after the 4th month of being neglected sexually and emotionally and talking with him every month about my needs. (He wanted to play video games more than anything and not working...) I looked elsewhere. I chated with a person (28 or 30M) we both new on PS4 game play.. I talked to him about leaving my boyfriend because of how unhappy I felt. Talking with him went on for two months until we decided to move to my moms. I consulted with my boyfriend on if he should come with me, because he wouldn't know anyone at all and he'd be leaving everything he'd known. Also, he probably wouldn't be able to go back due to some issues with his sister. He told me everything would be different when we moved and he had a job with money. I agreed for him to come with me, and I prayed things would get better. They got better with him getting a job, but it was only for the first month or two, and I confessed to talking to someone else. He was upset of course but eventually forgave me. Things were going well except we still weren't being very sexual and he spent more time on video games then a conversation with me. He then quit his job and was out of work again for a month or two and things went back to the way they were before, until he was hired on for a seasonal UPS job. Now in my mind I've already thought once that's over it'll all go back to the way it was. So I went and saw my ex husband and the dog we got together. Nothing happened with my ex husband, because I learned my lesson there. I ended up telling my boyfriend that as well and of course has every right to be upset. Things got fixed, but I felt things were still the same for us. So I'd tell him I was moving upstairs because I felt he was going to cheat on me just to get back at me and I would check his phone. We would talk and I'd ended up staying. It happened twice after that because of trust issues. (i've had trust issues since me and him started dating.. it just got worse in my mind) But this month after he didn't have a job again. I moved upstairs and told him I couldn't do it anymore. I couldn't pay the $300 rent, the $240 phone bill, his truck insurance, and my car payment by myself. He told me he understood, but didn't want me to go and had a job offer he hadn't told me about. I still moved upstairs, but then we talked and he cried asking me not to leave. I then decided that I needed to see a change before I completely moved back downstairs with him. He agreed... That brings us to tonight when I asked if i can sleep next to him, because he said he missed sleeping with me and got more comfortable sleeping alone. So I thought one night couldn't hurt just so he know I love him and I'm serious. Not stringing him along like he put it. lol Well I looked through his phone seeing if has messaged any females since we started our "Break" as Ross would say haha. Well he had messaged a married woman (38F) he had talked to before. I asked who she was a while back and was told she's and old friend that he knew before me. He only talked to her once, but he laughed when I thought anything of them. I saw they had messaged again on facebook. It wasn't much but I knew they must of had something because before I came along. She gave him her number and they texted. He asked if she was still married and she said yes. She asked if he was with me and he said we split up but she's still trying.... And later in the messages he talks about dick pics jokingly and she said those people get blocked immediately. She then says she's already seen it before and he says maybe it grew. and she said doubt it. no picture were sent at least not to my knowledge. He hasn't spoken to any other females that I know of, but he think I don't know his passcode, so he's not deleting anything. But I finally left after months of telling people I would leave... He asked me to stay, but says I'm still trying like he left me.. Should I still try? Or should I just give up on the man I love... Edit: Completeky forgot we together owe my mom $10k in credit card debt. I moved into my moms first. So the whole month he was by himself he spent $797 dollars on the credit card.
2019.01.22 03:32 hannakm[Quick Guide] Things I Wish I Knew About Applying to Med School
Hi everyone! After applying to med school this cycle and reflecting on the process, I found that there were times it felt a little overwhelming with the amount of information we have to know/jumps we have to go through/etc. There's a lot of really great guides out there to guide us through the process, but oftentimes it's not all gathered in one place. For the sake of convenience for future generations, I decided to compile a list of some of the things I found most helpful. Some of it comes from the advice of friends, health advisers, SDN and the world wide web, and others are just things I happened to learn by chance/personal experience while navigating the process on my own. Thought I'd share because it's handy to have a convenient summary/list of everything in one place, and also some things might not be as well known. (eg. I had never heard about the fee assistance program for applying, and didn't realize in-the-area requests were a thing). Posted this info on SDN as well but re-posting on reddit on someone's request. Also feel free to comment anything else you found helpful in this subthread. Would be happy to hear any more input! ------------- COST (GENERAL) Putting this section first because it’s probably one of the most important but under-discussed aspects of the application process. We all know that medical school tuition can be super expensive, but one thing that may or may not come up unexpectedly is just how expensive the application process itself can be. At least for me, the topic of paying for the application process never really came up with advisers, and I only happened to stumble upon the issue of money once through a chance conversation with a friend.
Save save save! Depending on what schools you apply to and whether or not you have to pay for primaries/secondaries, it’s probably a good idea to save up at least $2000-5000 dollars, particularly if you are applying to several schools out-of-state (this might be an overestimate for some people, but better to be safe than sorry). Whether this means saving up a little bit over 4 years of part-time jobs in college or allocating a chunk of your gap year salary, be prepared financially so that your ability to submit an app/attend an interview isn’t completely dependent on whether or not you have money in the bank.
Fee Assistance Program: Probably the best advice I was ever given about med school apps was to apply to the AAMC Fee Assistance Program, especially considering how underprepared I was financially to apply to med school at the time. If your household has an income 300% or less of the national poverty level, then you may qualify for AAMC’s fee assistance program, which similar to the common app for undergraduate colleges, will waive up to 15 primary applications as well as most of your secondary application fees (Out of my 22 med schools, only Baylor required me to pay the secondary application fee). Information about FAP can be found here. Try to apply as early as possible, since funding is limited and later applications won’t guarantee waivers, even if you meet the eligibility requirements. I submitted my application in early February.
Interviews: If you’re lucky, you’ll get a couple months of notice in advance before your interview. If you’re less lucky (of course still lucky since you got an interview in the first place), you may only get 2 weeks–maybe even less–of notice before your scheduled interview date. This is why, if you’re applying to out-of-state schools, the interview costs can eat up a significant chunk of your savings. Sometimes you might have to foot the costs of a $300 plane ride, but there are some things you can do to minimize costs as much as possible. These are listed in the “traveling for interviews” section.
The Primary in a Nutshell: Aside from your basic biographic information, coursework, school list and letters of evaluation, the primary AMCAS requires you to write a personal statement (up to 5300 characters) and up to 15 entries of work/activities, including a short ~500 character description and hours worked. Of your activities, you will also be asked to select 3 as the “most meaningful” and write an additional short answer on why. The work/activities and personal statement will likely be the most time-consuming part of your application.
When brainstorming what to write in the description for work/activities, consider the following questions:
What measurable impacts have I made with my organization?
What have I learned from this experience? How have I grown? What skills have I gained?
If relevant, what has this experience taught me about the field of medicine? What has the experience made me appreciate?
For “Most Meaningful Experience” blurbs, it may be helpful to jot down specific memories from your experience.
15 spaces isn’t enough? Group things into categories! For instance, I clumped all awards/honors/distinctions into one entry. I also worked several part-time jobs during college to earn money, so I clumped those into one as well and just briefly listed all of the jobs in the experience description.
15 spaces is too much? Don’t feel pressured to fill up the empty space. Just use as much as you need to get everything across.
Personal Statement: Not going to say too much since there are a lot of great guides online, but in simple terms, your personal statement should be (1) concise, (2) humble, (3) reflect who you are (perhaps how you’ve grown) and (4) demonstrate your path and commitment to medicine.
Submit early: After submitting your AMCAS, it takes a few weeks for your application to be processed and actually sent to your medical schools. Since many medical schools offer interviews and acceptances on a rolling basis, the earlier you get your application in the better. Try to submit your primary AMCAS as close to the first day as possible, ideally within the first two weeks if you can. (This doesn’t mean to rush to submit your app on day one; proofread every section, ensure quality and submit as soon as you feel ready)
Send transcripts ASAP! You can send transcripts as soon as the application cycle opens, so don’t wait to send them. Even if your primary AMCAS is submitted, it won’t be considered complete and processed until your transcripts are in as well. To avoid unexpected delays, send your transcripts to AAMC as soon as they’re ready.
Secondaries: The earlier you submit your primary, the earlier it’s verified and sent to schools, and the earlier you will receive your secondaries. Like the primary, strive to get your secondary applications in early (ideally within 2 weeks of receipt, although there is a little leeway). If you anticipate traveling/having limited internet connection/being busy between July and August, consider pre-writing some essays beforehand. It’s not necessary to prewrite your secondaries, but keep in mind that secondaries will flood your inbox in batches as soon as your application is verified. Having some prewritten essays on hand can really help take off some of the burden so you don’t burn out chugging 20++ essays in July and August. Medical school secondaries don’t change much from year to year, so you can search “X School of Medicine secondary prompts” online to get a headstart with the prompts. Some common prompts are:
Why X School? OR How do your experiences/interests match our school’s mission?
Describe a challenge and how you overcame it.
If you have taken gap year(s), describe what you have done since graduation.
Again, for this prompt, rather than simply listing everything, it’s okay to elaborate a little on why you’re doing what you’re doing and what you have or hope to have learned.
Describe yourself/Diversity Statement (ie what makes you you)
If you’re only going to prewrite one essay, this is probably the one to prewrite and refine. Many schools have an open-ended essay/describe yourself/autobiographical sketch/diversity statement prompt with word limits between 500-5000 characters, so if you write one essay that you can tweak the word count of, you’ll be set for a lot of schools.
DON’T COPY PASTE FROM PRIMARY TO SECONDARY. Secondary applications might seem pretty redundant, but don’t use that as an excuse to copy-paste from your primary. Treat the secondary as an extra opportunity to show the medical school more of who you are. Write about different experiences than the ones you wrote about in your personal statement, elaborate in more detail on experiences only mentioned briefly, etc. Be consistent, but not repetitive. In other words, if you said you’re extremely passionate about teaching in your primary, it’s okay to talk about your passion for teaching in your secondary (in fact it might be weird if you abandoned your love of teaching and wrote about something entirely different instead). Just don’t tell the same story twice.
Proof-read. Proof-read your primary, proof-read your secondary. Proof-read again. Make sure you don’t accidentally write about Cornell in an essay for Feinberg.
Check fofinish any other additional requirements. For instance, many schools including Rutgers RWJ, University of Michigan, Drexel and Temple require all applicants to take an additional standardized test called “CASPer“, an online 60-90 minute examination designed to assess non-academic skills like collaboration, ethics, professionalism and problem-solving. It is designed such that you don’t need to prepare for it beforehand, so just sign up for the earliest convenient testing date and get it over with so that your med school app will be considered complete and sent to the admissions committee for evaluation.
Once everything is submitted, the wait begins! If you have everything between July and early August, interview offers can start trickling in any time starting early August (or in very rare cases, late July). That said, don’t feel anxious if it’s August/September and you haven’t heard anything. More than half of my interview invites didn’t come in until OctobeNovember, and there are people who continue to receive interviews all the way until February/March! I think the general rule is not to start worrying unless you haven’t gotten a single interview by Thanksgiving, so until then, sit tight, enjoy life, and appreciate the free time while (if) you have it. PREPARING FOR INTERVIEWS Whether or not you’ve received your first interview offer, it’s never a bad idea to start preparing. If you’ve gotten your first interview, congrats! Wherever you are in the process, here are some tips for preparing for interviews.
Know your application. Be prepared to answer any questions about your primary or secondary application. Unless you have a multiple mini-interview (MMI), a majority of your interviews will likely address-if not concentrate on-your application. If it helps, print and annotate your application with extra experiences, what you’ve learned from the experience, and how it has helped you grow. Questions about your application may come up in the following ways:
Elaborate on this activity
Why did you join this club?
Tell me about your research (for this one, don’t get too technical from the getgo. Summarize your research in layman’s terms and only elaborate further if the interviewer asks. For one interview, my interviewer actually asked me, word by word, “Explain your research to me as if I were an 8 year old.”)
Tell me about your clinical experience
How did you choose your majominor?
What was your favorite/least favorite course at Your University?
Know yourself. This may sound silly, I know. But reflecting on who you are/the background you come from is a really great exercise for preparing for medical school interviews because chances are you’ll be asked about yourself. Think about how/where you grew up, the path you’ve taken to get to where you are, who you are outside of medicine, etc. Questions intended to get to know you include, but aren’t limited to:
So tell me about yourself
Tell me about your family/where you grew up
What do you like to do in your free time?
Know why medicine. I would be surprised if any school didn’t ask some form of “why medicine?”. Be able to explain why you are going into medicine and not any other field. Reflect on any experiences that influenced you, summarize your decision-making process and the ultimate reasons behind your decision. Some points to consider that may or may not be relevant are:
Why pursue the M.D. degree, not nursing/PA/MA/any other field of medicine?
If you have research experience, why M.D instead of a Ph.D (or MD/PhD)?
If you have significant teaching/mentoring experience, why medicine and not a career in education?
Realize that “helping people” alone isn’t a strong enough argument for medical schools. There are a number of other jobs (social work, non-profits, education, etcetc) that achieve the same purpose.
Medicine is great, but also be aware of some of the limitations and drawbacks. Show that you’re realistic–though not cynical–about the profession and that you’re interested in medicine despite the limitations it may face.
On the issue of limitations of healthcare: Not everyone has the same experience, but at least I was asked during three separate interviews variations of “What do you think are the greatest limitations/drawbacks of American healthcare?” This might be a good topic to do a bit of research on or brainstorm beforehand, whether through drawing from examples from your clinical experience or reading news articles online.
Know the school. Hopefully, you did some research before crafting your school list so you have at least a vague idea of what made you decide to apply. If you didn’t, now is the time to do that. In addition to knowing the general mission and values of the school, research opportunities that the school has that match your specific interests. For example, are you interested in social justice? Do you value a school’s emphasis on student wellness? What kind of opportunities do students have to get involved with x, y or z type of research? Whether through reading specific school website/handouts, skimming MSAR, talking to current students, looking at blogs or all of the above, be prepared to answer “Why X School?” and demonstrate why you would be a good fit. Personally, I typed up ~2 pages of notes for each school I received an interview from and found them useful to skim before interview day.
Glance over some other common questions. These aren’t necessary to prepare for, but if you have some extra free time looking over them can’t hurt.
Name 5 strengths/weaknesses
Tell me about a time you failed (ie. tell me about a time you failed and how you learned from it).
Describe a challenge you faced and how you overcame it.
What problems do you anticipate facing as a future medical student/physician?
Where do you see yourself in 10 years?
What do you think are the qualities that make a good physician?
Why should we choose you?
What do you look for in a medical school?
What would you do if you didn’t get into medical school this year?
Just search “sample medical school interview questions” to find a bunch more
Prepare to ask questions. When the interviewer asks “do you have any questions for me?”, it’s generally a good idea to ask a question. It’s also a great opportunity for you to learn more about the school, the profession, or anything else you want to know about. If you can’t think of any questions that come up during your conversation with your interviewer, here are some ideas of what you could ask:
What was your path to medicine? What brought you to X Medical School?
What do you like most about X Medical School? What do you wish could be changed?
(If the interviewer has been with the medical school for a long time) How has X Medical School changed over the years?
What kind of patient populations do you see?
How is your work/life balance?
What is it like to work as a physician in City/Town?
Can you elaborate on your involvement in X?
If you’re interviewing with a student, ask about student life, clinical rotations, receptiveness to student feedback, why they chose the school, what they do in their free time, etc. Other informative questions can be found here, although some of the questions are more to ask during/after the interview day rather than during the interview.
MMIs: I was fortunate(?) enough not to have any MMI interviews during my application cycle, so I won’t talk too much about it aside from saying it’s good to prepare in advance. MMIs, or multiple-mini interviews, are short, timed stations that interviewees rotate through. In each station, the interviewee interacts with a different interviewer and is assessed on things such as cultural sensitivity, teamwork, empathy, etc. Interviewees may be asked about ethical scenarios, and one station might be a more traditional “tell me about yourself”.
Public transit v. taxi/ubelyft: Depending on where you are, the best mode of transportation will vary. This may seem like common sense, but I’ve talked to a few people who have had unexpected trouble getting to interview sites on time. If you know any students or people from the area, it would be a good idea to ask what they use for transportation. To give a couple examples, ubelyft is probably the better option in Rochester, MN where the airport-Mayo shuttle only runs every 3 or so hours until 6PM and is only a few dollars cheaper. Meanwhile, in NYC, there is usually a lot of traffic which means that ubelyft/via time estimates are often not very accurate. During peak hours in downtown Manhattan, a ~10 minute car ride could take an hour, so depending on how far you are from the interview site, walking or taking the subway is likely your best bet.
Saving on travel: Last-minute flights are expensive, and sometimes there is no way around them. But by minimizing costs for other interviews, you can limit the amount of money you spend overall.
Compare costs–and check Southwest. Obviously, it’s good to compare prices online between different airlines. Make sure to take into account policies on baggage (eg. the cheapest United flight does not include a free carry-on bag). Another thing that isn’t widely known is that Southwest airlines doesn’t appear on most (if not all?) price comparison sites, so don’t forget to include Southwest in your airline comparisons. Two great benefits about Southwest is that they give you two free checked bags, and they charge no fee for cancelling or rescheduling your flight (you just have to pay the difference in ticket price). The option to reschedule a flight for free can sometimes make a huge difference (eg. if a school fulfills an ITA request–read more below).
Send “ITAs”: ITAs, or in-the-area requests, are great to send to schools as long as you send them at least a month or more in advance. Applying to med school is an expensive process both time and money-wise, and many medical schools (eg. Weill Cornell and Pritzker at UChicago) understand this and will try as much as they can to accommodate for you. If you are going to be in the area for another interview/family trip/etc, consider sending an email to other schools as well. As long as you’re polite with your request, an ITA can’t hurt you.
A quick blurb on wording ITA emails: From my own experience, I know that some medical schools are kind enough to take ITA requests into account whenever they can. However, it’s also true that they have no obligation to fulfill your request. Even simply getting an interview invite in the first place is a privilege, and it’s important to acknowledge this in your ITA email. For mine, I wrote something along the lines of “I understand that X school only interviews a limited number of the most competitive applicants. However, if I am fortunate enough to receive an interview, I was wondering if it would it be possible to schedule within Y time frame to reduce the costs of traveling and minimize time taken away from work”. As long as you’re humble in your request though, whatever wording you use should be fine.
Public transit can be convenient! Check if your area has buses/shuttles/etc that take you to and from the airport/medical school. For instance, the 55 bus in Chicago will take you straight (literally) from University of Chicago to the Midway airport. Pritzker SOM is only a ~7 minute walk to the bus stop. If you’re unfamiliar with the area and your transportation options, Google Maps is a life saver. And if you want to be safe, it’s okay to ask the people around you to make sure you’re at the right place.
Early bird specials and free rides: Look in your area to see if there are any transportation companies that offer mega-discounts or have a reward system for rides. For instance, if you book tickets 3+ weeks in advance, Megabus prices for certain times and destinations can be heavily discounted (eg. for one interview, I only spent $12 for a roundtrip bus ticket from DC to Philadelphia). Vamoose Bus, which travels between the DC/MD/VA and NYC, has a rewards system in which every ticket purchase adds up in credit that you can eventually redeem for a free ride.
This post is not sponsored by Vamoose, Southwest, or Megabus.. just speaking from my own experiences trying to find travel options.
Comfortable clothes to wear outside of interview day (eg. pajamas, tshirt/jeans, undergarments, comfortable shoes)
Binder with your AMCAS primary, secondar(ies) and notes specific to the medical school — almost every school I interviewed at had some variation of “Why our school?”, so having some handouts or quick bullet points on hand can be helpful to review.
Some applicants brought copies of their CV/research articles/etc, but I personally never did and don’t think it’s necessary.
Pen and small notepad; handy for taking notes in case your school doesn’t provide you with a writing utensil on interview day.
Keep the pen and paper with you during interview day to jot down notes about the school (and the conversations you have with your interviewers in case you have to write thank you letters later that night).
A book or something to do on the way
Emergency cash (ie money I’ll probably end up using on food at some cool cash-only market/food truck/street food cart)
Never packed a pillow/sleeping bag, because I was fortunate enough to only have hosts that provided pillow/blankets/couch to sleep on.
Take notes! If you ever have time after an interview day, take time to journal and reflect on your impressions of the day. It might seem silly now, but it will be unbelievably useful when you realize in a few months that you barely remember details of the experience. Even making a bulleted list of things you liked/disliked about the school will be helpful when decision-making season comes around. Reading your interview day notes will also help in drafting letters of interest/intent later down the line.
Write thank yous (unless they say otherwise). Within 24 hours of your interview, send a thank you to your interviewer(s) either directly to the admissions office/to the interviewers themselves, or by uploading to the application portal. If instructions on where to send thank yous weren’t given during an info session, your best bet is probably to send an email to the admissions office and ask them to forward your notes. I didn’t take my laptop with me when I traveled, so I just drafted and sent emails from my iPhone to thank the interviewers for their time and reaffirm my interest in the school. For some schools, the thank you won’t really be more than just a nice gesture, but for other schools (eg. Georgetown and Mayo), all communication including thank you letters are taken into account during the admissions process.
Send updates: Once you’ve finished your interviews, consider sending a post-II update to your schools. While the update won’t be necessary for some schools like Stanford or Harvard, other schools like Columbia, Feinberg, Mayo, Jeff (SKMC), and Pritzker explicitly state during their interview day that they like to hear about what you’ve been doing since you applied. In your update letter, it’s usually appropriate to also include a blurb reaffirming your interest in the school and why you think it’d be a good fit.
Even if you haven’t heard from the school at all since submitting your application, it’s ~generally~ okay to send an update anyway. In fact, for some schools I’d encourage it because it demonstrates continued interest (eg. I know at least Feinberg and SKMC are very receptive to pre-II updates).
An example list of some schools that accept updates (NOT comprehensive, just some of the schools I applied to. Also note that this is based on information I found while applying in the 2018-2019 cycle so make sure to double-check that things haven't changed)
Emory – Accepts updates in text-format through the online portal. Go to “STATUS” -> “Update My Application” on the left side of the screen, then there should be a textbox where you can input your information.
Feinberg (Northwestern) – Email [[email protected]](mailto:[email protected]) your updates either in the body of the e-mail or as a PDF. Make sure to include your AAMC ID#
Perelman, Columbia, NYU, Mt. Sinai, Harvard, Yale, Georgetown -Upload updates to your online application portal
Case Western – Updates are only accepted from applicants who are (1) invited for an interview (2) on hold for a future interview or (3) on the alternate list. There will be a place to upload updates on the application portal
Stanford and Mayo only accept significant updates for applicants post-interview invite.
Sit back and relax! If you’re done with interviews, now all that’s left is the waiting game. If you have some free time, read that book or binge that TV show you’ve been procrastinating on, take on a DIY project, start a new hobby, plan that travel you’ve been dreaming of for decades… whatever you want to do to enjoy life and distract yourself until the big day comes.
Hello guys i have been dealing with this issue here for a month and i hope someone can help me here. 📷 whenever i play an online game like world of warcraft - fortnite - overwatch etc, the games sometimes freeze for about 5-15 seconds and then everything that happened between jumps fastforward and this makes competitive gameplay hard. I asked my ISP about it and they sent an technician over and he ran som test in the wall and everything was 100% fine so there is nothing in there side. i recently ran a clean install on windows 10 and there ware no network errors before that. my system is plugged with ethernet cable cat6 and my internet is 100/100 mb-s that sould be enough for online gaming. all of my drivers are up to date and windows updates. the things i have tried so far -DNS flush -tried bunch of different DNS servers -Rollback on network drivers -network troubleshoot -ISP technician nothing of this has worked for me and i really hope someone can help me here on this forum. thanks Daniel.
2018.07.13 16:29 thebookishelfBook Review: A Man Called Ove
Title: A Man Called Ove (En man som heter Ove) Author: Fredrik Backman Publisher (English): Washington Square Press, US Genre: Contemporary Fiction First Publication: The novel was first published in Sweden in 2012. The English translation was published in 2013. Language: English Setting Place: Sweden Protagonist: Ove Major Characters: Ove, Parvaneh, Sonja, Rune, Adrian, Nasanin, Mirsad, Jimmy Theme: Memory and Grief, Love, Family, Principles, Loyalty Narration: Third Person Limited Point of view.
Book Summary : A Man Called Ove
A Man Called Ove is a story of a grumpy old man who points at people he dislikes as if they are burglars caught outside his bedroom window. He has steadfast principles, uncompromising routines and a short fuse. He doesn’t walk around with a smile plastered to his face all the time. People call him the harsh and bitter neighbor from the hell. Behind this cranky exterior of Ove, there is a story and sadness. This grumpy but loveable man, Ove’s solitary world turned upside down when a young family moves in his neighborhood. One November morning a talkative young couple with their two talkative daughters move in next door. They accidentally flatten Ove’s mailbox when husband was trying to reverse trailer car. This leads in to a comical and heartwarming tale of Ove and his life. Ove drives a Saab and he criticize the people driving popular Japanese models. He takes it upon himself to inspect the goings-on of his neighborhood. Every morning he walks around the street locking up misplaced bicycles and tearing down flyers. He hates all the “thirty-one-year olds” that have moved into his neighborhood, driving up property costs.
Character List: A Man Called Ove
Ove: The 59-year-old protagonist of the novel. He lost his mother when he’s 8 and his father at the age of 16. Ove believes that men should do things—not just talk about them. He distrusts the internet and people who work from home. Sonja: Ove’s late wife, who dies six months before the start of the novel. Sonja was very beautiful and she loved colors, chaos, and the humanities. Parvaneh: An Iranian woman moves in across the street with her husband Patrick and her two children, Nasanin and the seven-year-old. Patrick: Parvaneh’s husband and an IT consultant. Ove refers to Patrick as The Lanky One. Jimmy: A young overweight man who lives in the house between Ove and Rune. He lived there with his mother until her death, which occurred a few years before the start of the novel. Anders: He lives across the street and drives an Audi. He owns a towing company. He dates a woman that Ove refers to as the Blond Weed. Blond Weed: She is Anders’ girlfriend. Ove never learns her name. He refers her as Blond Weed because she’s blond, tall, and wears very tall high heels. Rune: Rune and Ove, with their wives, moved into the neighborhood on the same day. Anita and Sonja became friends so Rune and Ove became friends to appease their wives. Anita: Rune’s wife and lives two houses down from Ove. Ove describes her as tiny and ashy. He thinks she’s certainly not up to the task of caring for her husband by herself.
The book opens with the following characterizations about Ove: “Ove is fifty-nine. He drives a Saab. He’s the kind of man who points at people he doesn’t like the look of, as if they were burglars and his forefinger a policeman’s torch.” The story moves back and forth between Ove’s childhood and his present life as a fifty-nine-year-old man living alone Sweden. Book takes its time to reveal that this dyed-in-the-wool curmudgeon has the heart of gold. You’ll see the basic set up coming, but author does a crafty job in revealing it chapter by chapter. Ove’s past trickles out in alternating chapters. You’ll learn in chapters how an honorable and hardworking boy turned into a grumpy-natured old man. When Ove was eight, his mother died, so he began to work at the railway with his father. Ove was 16 when his father died and left him with his house and the Saab. After that Ove quits school to take his father’s job at railway. It’s Sonja who turns his life around the first time. Sweet and lively Sonja marries Ove and balances his pessimism with optimism and warmth. By the age of 59, he’s yet again in a place of despair. It’s a woman who turns him around second time. Parvaneh, an Iranian pregnant woman, who moved into the house next door with her husband and two children. She forces Ove to engage with the world. The back-story chapters have simple and fable-like quality while the current-day chapters episodic and hysterically funny.
A man Called Ove is Swedish author Fredrik Backman’s debut novel. Many publishing companies had rejected the manuscript of this book before it was published. The book was translated into English and published in the US in 2013. The Novel has become commercially successful since then. It has been translated in 38 languages and sold more than a million copies. Backman has authored several other books including My Grandmother Asked Me to Tell You She’s Sorry , and Britt-Marie Was Here. A Man Called Ove was adapted into a stage play and also a movie in 2015.

2018.04.02 02:57 MannyaticConsole peasant trying to switch to PC, need help with first build
I've been a console gamer since I was a kid but I've always been attracted to PC gaming. Since I'm in college, all of my friends in campus own a PC so I can't really play with them with my crappy laptop. Also, my XB1 just got burned in an accident so I'm unable to play anything right now. I'm a complete noob in this world of building computers but in my investigations I found this subreddit so I hope you guys can help me a little.
What will you be doing with this PC? Be as specific as possible, and include specific games or programs you will be using.
Gaming (Fortnite, GTAV, PUBG, Overwatch, maybe som BF3), basic software for homework like Word and PowerPoint, some photoshop and of course basic internet browsing.
What is your maximum budget before rebates/shipping/taxes?
Around 700$ (Right now I have exactly 750$)
When do you plan on building/buying the PC? Note: beyond a week or two from today means any build you receive will be out of date when you want to buy.
If it's possible, will be buying everything during this week.
What, exactly, do you need included in the budget? (ToweOS/monitokeyboard/mouse/etc)
All the necessary to get a fully functional PC + a MONITOR (If it's not included in the budget it's ok but mine is kinda old so if you guys can add one would be awesome)
Which country (and state/province) will you be purchasing the parts in? If you're in US, do you have access to a Microcenter location?
Arizona and no, I don't
If reusing any parts (including monitor(s)/keyboard/mouse/etc), what parts will you be reusing? Brands and models are appreciated.
Like I said, I have an old 19'' Dell monitor from a OEM PC but I don't really want to use it because it has a lot of dead pixels and a bad quality image.
Will you be overclocking? If yes, are you interested in overclocking right away, or down the line? CPU and/or GPU?
I don't know what that means, sorry for that.
Are there any specific features or items you want/need in the build? (ex: SSD, large amount of storage or a RAID setup, CUDA or OpenCL support, etc)
Not really, I just want to be able to play the games mentioned before
Do you have any specific case preferences (Size like ITX/microATX/mid-towefull-tower, styles, colors, window or not, LED lighting, etc), or a particular color theme preference for the components?
I saw some builds with RGB rainbow lighting that looks really cool so if it's possible some of those things would be appreciated. About the size of the cases, I prefer a microATX thing with mid or mini tower because I need to save some space in my dorm.
Do you need a copy of Windows included in the budget? If you do need one included, do you have a preference?
2018.03.28 22:45 tfultoList of Likely/Possibly/Impossible artists for FYF 2018
I thought it would be good to have a list of artists and their possibility of being at the fest this year, because I like lists and thought it'd be helpful to keep things all in one place. Also hopefully it could generate some discussion too! I had some free time so I jotted down every artist mentioned on this sub for FYF 2018 and did a little research into their tour dates to determine the probability that they'd be at FYF. I broke it into a few categories: Confirmed, Likely, Possible, Long shot, Likely out and Out. Feel free to correct me if I've missed something or suggest other artists and I can add them. FYF takes place on July 21-22, 2018 Edit 4/2/18: I've put artists that ended up on the lineup in bold, as well as added a section of who we failed to predict. Who we missed (21 artists):
So here goes: Likely (6/13 artists made the lineup) These artists have no LA date on their upcoming tour May through September, will be in the area within a few days of the fest, and have an opening on the weekend of 7/21-22. My guess is that most of these will make the lineup.

Possible (7/38 artists made the lineup) These artists have no LA date on their upcoming tour May through September, and have the entire weekend of 7/21-22 free, but might not necessarily be in the area based on their tour dates. I'm guessing 1/3 of these will make the lineup.

Unknown Mortal Orchestra (This one is tricky because they are @Wiltern 5/11, but also in AZ 7/19 with the entire weekend free. That looks like a lock to me, but I'll keep them here since they're not quite a sure thing, FYF 2015)
Vince Staples (FYF 2016)
Warpaint (FYF 2012)
Long shot (7/81 acts made the lineup) These artists have no LA date on their upcoming tour May through September but are either across the country/continent within a week of FYF or have no US dates announced, or are on a touring hiatus (meaning they currently have no dates announced). A few of these might make the lineup.

Likely out (4/53 artists made the lineup) These artists have at least one LA date on their upcoming tour through September, or have two LA dates in 2018. The other instance is that they only have one day of the weekend free, making them have to travel across the country in only one day. I'd say maybe only 1 or 2 of these could make the lineup.

I'm a huge Radiohead fan and would love to see them there, but honestly with the dates of 7/20-22, it just doesn't seem to be within the realm of possibility. I would love to be proven wrong.)

Syleena Johnson) [Chorus - 4x] Oh when it all, it all falls down I'm telling you ohh, it all falls down [Verse - Kanye West] Man I promise, she's so self conscious She has no idea what she's doing in college That major that she majored in don't make no money But she won't drop out, her parents will look at her funny Now, tell me that ain't insecurrre The concept of school seems so securrre Sophmore three yearrrs aint picked a careerrr She like fuck it, I'll just stay down herre and do hair Cause that's enough money to buy her a few pairs of new Airs Cause her baby daddy don't really care She's so precious with the peer pressure Couldn't afford a car so she named her daughter Alexus (a Lexus) She had hair so long that it looked like weave Then she cut it all off now she look like Eve And she be dealing with some issues that you can't believe Single black female addicted to retail and well [Chorus - repeat 2x (w/ Kanye ad-libs)] [Verse - Kanye West] Man I promise, I'm so self conscious That's why you always see me with at least one of my watches Rollies and Pasha's done drove me crazy I can't even pronounce nothing, pass that versace! Then I spent 400 bucks on this Just to be like nigga you ain't up on this! And I can't even go to the grocery store Without some ones thats clean and a shirt with a team It seems we living the american dream But the people highest up got the lowest self esteem The prettiest people do the ugliest things For the road to riches and diamond rings We shine because they hate us, floss cause they degrade us We trying to buy back our 40 acres And for that paper, look how low we a'stoop Even if you in a Benz, you still a nigga in a coop/coupe [Chorus - repeat 2x (w/ Kanye ad-libs)] [Verse - Kanye West] I say fuck the police, thats how I treat em We buy our way out of jail, but we can't buy freedom We'll buy a lot of clothes when we don't really need em Things we buy to cover up what's inside Cause they make us hate ourself and love they wealth That's why shortys hollering "where the ballas' at?" Drug dealer buy Jordans, crackhead buy crack And a white man get paid off of all of that But I ain't even gon act holier than thou Cause fuck it, I went to Jacob with 25 thou Before I had a house and I'd do it again Cause I wanna be on 106 and Park pushing a Benz I wanna act ballerific like it's all terrific I got a couple past due bills, I won't get specific I got a problem with spending before I get it We all self conscious I'm just the first to admit it [Chorus - to fade (w/ Kanye ad-libs)] "I'll Fly Away" Some glad morning when this life is over, I'll fly away. To a home on God's celestial shore, I'll fly away. I'll fly away, O Glory, I'll fly away. When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye, I'll fly away. When the shadows of this life have flown, I'll fly away. Like a bird thrown, driven by the storm, I'll fly away. I'll fly away, O Glory, I'll fly away. When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye, I'll fly away. Just a few more weary days and then, I'll fly away. To a land where joy shall never end, I'll fly away. I'll fly away, O Glory, I'll fly away. When I die, Hallelujah, bye and bye, I'll fly away.

Well if this take away from my spins Which will probably take away from my ends Then I hope this take away from my sins And bring the day that I'm dreaming about Next time I'm in the club everybody screaming out (Jesus walks) God show me the way because the devil trying to break me down (Jesus walks) The only thing that that I pray is that my feet don't fail me now (Jesus walks) And I don't thing there's nothing I can do now to right my wrongs (Jesus walks with me... fades) I want to talk to God but I'm afraid because we ain't spoke in so long "Never Let Me Down" (feat.
