2020.09.24 03:48 elpearce02 found bf was cheating 1.5 yrs ago. What to do

so yesterday i was on my boyfriends phone and clicked on the sc chat between him and this girl he met on a cruise 2 years ago, when we first began dating. In the chat when i scrolled up to saved chats from feb 2018 when they would chat all the time i saw many messages saying “i love you sexy” hearts and stuff. clearly a bit more than friends. i asked him about it and he said he never did anything with her but he knew that was too far. they e hardly spoken since then but what he did is like emotional cheating
However in the past he has also kissed someone else whilst he was drunk - around a year ago now. i forgave him for this and decided to give him another chance But over this year and the past few months in quarantine we have become really close seeing each other pretty much every day. i love him heaps and we talk about spending our lives together
i just don’t know whether i should give him another chance. i said if he cheated again i would break up with him. but i feel like where honestly different people now from when we began dating and when this stuff went down even just through this year - i know i’ve grown and changed a lot. i do want to be able to forgive but since it’s now happens multiple time i’m not sure i can/should
would love your ad i e on what to do. thanks

2020.09.24 03:05 AutoModerator General Questions Thread, September 24, 2020

A thread for new collectors to ask basic questions of the community.
Frequently Asked Questions below!
A longer version of the subreddit rules is here.
For questions specifically concerning bootlegs or vendor legitimacy, please ask in the Bootleg Megathread.
NSFW & Spoiler Guidelines
  • For Self Posts: include a bolded NSFW note next to links in that post.
  • For Links to sites/images: If the figure is NSFW, or the website has any NSFW content (including ads) be sure to tag your post NSFW and use the appropriate link flair.
Any collection posts containing bootlegs, comments advocating buying bootlegs, or links to sites selling bootlegs, recasts, or unlicensed merchandise will be removed.
People often ask about the legitimacy and/or safety of a number of websites which sell large resin statues. The more commonly-asked of those deal primarily in resins from studios which do not have a license from the Japanese IP holders to produce merchandise. Therefore links to those sites are not permitted here. Another sign is if MyFigureCollection doesn't list the either the statue, its manufacturer, or the shop it's being sold on.
My Figure Collection is like MyAnimeList... but for figures! Their database includes thousands of items which been produced during the last couple of decades, along with reviews of shops and other helpful articles. One can also list their own collection and post gallery photos.

Buying & Shipping

1. What’s the best place to buy my anime figures from?
That’s going to depend a lot on what works for you, but most people around here buy them from Amiami, Big in Japan, Hobby Search, HobbyLink Japan, or Tokyo Otaku Mode. If none of those work for you for whatever reason, there’s a list of reputable retailers in the sidebar that you can check out at any time. Be extra careful when ordering figures from websites like Amazon or ebay, as there are a lot of bootlegs on those sites. Don’t be afraid to ask in our Bootleg Megathread if you’re unsure.
2. What differences are there between the shipping options I get from most Japanese shops?
Below is a rundown of the main shipping choices you’ll get at most retailers. Keep in mind that if an order is large enough you will be forced to use one of the more expensive options, as SAL shipments have lower size and weight restrictions.
  • Unregistered SAL: Sometimes referred to as uSAL, is usually the cheapest method. It does not come with any tracking or insurance. Usually takes up 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • Registered SAL: Sometimes referred to as rSAL, is insured for the declared value up to 6,000 yen. It comes with a tracking number and usually takes 2-4 weeks for delivery.
  • EMS: This method of shipping is much faster than either SAL options, usually arriving within a week of shipment. EMS shipments are insured for the declared value up to 2,000,000 yen.
  • Airmail
  • E-packet
  • Surface: Shops don't offer this very often. It's an actual cargo ship and slow as a result.
  • DHL: Becoming more available as an alternative to EMS on AmiAmi and other sites. Can be less expensive than EMS and of comparable speed, but may be more reliant on the specific geographical area being shipped to. Offers their own tracking.
3. I placed two+ orders for figures at different times. Will my items be shipped together, or will I have to pay shipping twice?
Most shops will ask you to pay shipping on a per-order basis, but here are some that will allow combined shipping:
  • Amiami: You can combine orders here, as long as the orders ship in the same month. It doesn’t matter if the item is new or preowned. Any preorders that are set for that month can also be combined with other orders for that month. However, be aware that if the preorder gets delayed, Amiami will remove that item from that month’s shipment and place it on a new order. To combine orders on Amiami, use the “Combine Orders” feature under “My Account”.
  • Hobby Search: Hobby Search will let you combine orders that release in the same month, but you cannot combine in stock items with preorders. If you want to combine multiple preorders, or multiple in stock items, you can do so using the “Order Recombination” feature on your account page.
  • HobbyLink Japan: At HLJ, you have the option to send paid orders to their “Private Warehouse”, where you can store them for up to 2 months. When you’re ready to ship the items, you simply select which items to ship and HLJ will combine them into one shipment for you. To use this, just select the “Private Warehouse” option as shipping when you order.
  • GSC Web Shop: Here you’ll pay a flat 2,000 yen fee per order. It doesn’t matter how many items you put in your order, or how many different months the items release in. They will charge you 2,000 yen and ship all items as they release. The exception to this rule is their Wonder Festival exclusive items. Those can only be placed in the same order as other Wonder Festival items.
If you’re unsure about whether or not a shop we haven’t listed will combine your orders, please refer to their individual FAQ’s.
4. When will I get charged for my preorder?
Most Japanese shops charge you once the item is in stock and ready for shipment. When that happens, they will send you an email asking for payment. Some shops (mostly overseas ones), will allow you to pay for the item up front though, if you’d like. A few with that option are:
  • Big in Japan (Japanese store)
  • Tokyo Otaku Mode
  • Anime Island
  • Crunchyroll
Keep in mind that overseas stores will likely get the figure a few months after Japanese ones, so pay attention to the release date stated on the website you are buying from so as to avoid that confusion.
5. Should I expect to pay customs fees when importing figures?
That depends on where you live. Here’s a quick rundown:
  • Australia: 10% GST is now assessed up front.
  • Canada: Minimum declared value for charges is around CAD$20 for regular shipments, and CAD$60 for gifts (gifting something only seems to lower the declared value by about CAD$40, not deplete it completely). When using Amiami, try their Small Air Packet option. It comes with tracking, gets there in about the same time as EMS, and is better at avoiding customs.
  • Europe: Using EMS raises your chance of getting charged for customs. SAL can still avoid customs in some countries, but generally gets checked in the UK now if the items are above the threshold. Amiami offers a shipping service called “Small Air Packet” that is really good for avoiding customs when you are only shipping one or two figures. Small Air Packet usually takes about the same amount of time as EMS, and still comes with tracking.The minimum declared value for customs charges in the Europe is pretty low- around £15 (£36 for gifts) / €20.
  • Mexico: Minimum declared value for customs fees is USD$300 for shipments by post, and USD$50 for shipments by courier.
  • United States: A shipment has to have a declared value of USD$2,000 before customs starts hitting you with fees, so you most likely won’t have to worry about them at all.
6. The figure I want is an exclusive, how do I go about ordering one outside of Japan?
You have three options for this:
A. Big in Japan is known to stock exclusive figures and ship to other countries. Usually the price is higher because they build in their proxy fees, but it’s easier than worrying about using a forwarder or proxy service. If you live in the US, Crunchyroll, Right Stuf, and Tokyo Otaku Mode also get exclusives sometimes, but out of the states the shipping can get expensive.
B. Forwarding Services: A forwarder is someone who you ship an exclusive item to so that they can forward the package on to you, usually for a flat fee + shipping. When using a forwarder you still make the purchase yourself, and enter their address into the shipping field. When the box arrives at the forwarder they will then stick your address onto the package and send it on its way.
Some popular forwarders are:
Be sure to read each sites instructions on forwarding carefully!
C. Proxy Services: With a proxy, you tell them what the item you’re looking for is and they will purchase it in your stead. This is handy for when a company doesn’t accept foreign credit cards, or you’re having trouble navigating a Japanese website.
Some popular proxies are:
Again, be sure you thoroughly read through each sites proxy instructions.
7. I see a bunch of really cheap figures that ship from China on ebay. Are those okay to buy?
Generally, no. They’re most likely bootlegs. If you want a second opinion on that, feel free to ask in the Bootleg Megathread that’s always stickied at the top of the sub.
8. What’s a bootleg, and how can I avoid buying them?
A bootleg is a counterfeit figure often made using rejected molds of the official product. They are usually priced significantly lower than the genuine article, and in order to make their profit, bootleggers use lower quality materials and have less attention to detail- resulting in a substandard figure.
The Bootleg Megathread that I mentioned in question 7 is a great tool to avoid buying any bootlegs. It has a few tips and tricks to avoiding them to begin with, and a few more on how to spot them if you’re worried you might already own one.
9. Does anyone know when figure X is going to be released? How do I know if it was delayed?
My Figure Collection (sometimes referred to as MFC) does an excellent job of staying on top of information like release dates and delays. If you’re curious about an upcoming figures release date, check there first. This information can be found directly under the “Releases” section on a figure’s entry. If you only see a month and a year in that section, it means the release date has not yet been announced by the manufacturer, and there is still a chance the figure could be delayed.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
10. The figure I want is long sold out at normal retailers! What’s the best place to pick it up in the aftermarket?
A list of reputable retailers can be found under the “Shops” section of the /AnimeFigures sidebar. They all sell legitimate products, and many of them also sell figures second hand. However, the most frequently suggested second hand sites are Mandarake and Amiami- who has a preowned section that they update every night save Sundays and Japanese holidays around 1PM JST and again around 6PM JST.
AmiAmi grades their pre-owned items on a letter scale. The general consensus from buyers is that their ratings are conservative, so unless the item and/or packaging is specifically indicated as having significant flaws, pre-owned items from them are usually in at least as good a condition as their rating suggests.
Note: When you search Mandarake, you’ll get the best results by using the Japanese characters for whatever you are searching. If you don’t know them, you can find them on MFC by clicking on any of the “details” in that figure’s listing.
11. Amiami has a figure I’m interested in labeled as “For sale in Japan only”. Does this mean I can’t order it without a proxy or forwarder?
No, you can still order it. Amiami’s English site has that warning on many items, and it’s mostly meant to inform you that this product was made for a Japanese market, and as such, will have Japanese speaking/writing in it- so don’t expect any instructions to be in English. If Amiami doesn’t want foreigners buying a certain product, they won’t even list it on their English site.

Displaying Your Figures

12. What display cases do you recommend?
If you live near an Ikea try out one of these:
*If you decided on a Detolf, you might find that there is a lot of wasted space. Here are a few tutorials on raising the shelves or and adding extra ones in.
If you don’t live near an Ikea, Amazon has a few display options, though they are more expensive. Also keep an eye on your local Craigslist (or your country’s equivalent) and stores near you that are closing up.
13. What lighting do you guys recommend?
Ikea’s Dioder LED strips are often suggested. They come in white or muti-colored.
Most hardware stores carry something similar though, if you don’t live by an Ikea. Just make sure that the lights don’t get too hot!
14. What are those clear plastic boxes that I see under everyone’s figures in their collection posts, and where can I get them?
Those are called risers. Most of us use standard acrylic risers like these. Some other, easy to find things that have been suggested are:
Check your local hobby store for the first 2 options, or your local hardware store if you want to make your own.
Another common suggestion is to visit The Container Store if you have one near you. They have a lot of things to choose from that can suit a variety of needs. Be sure to check out their standard acrylic risers, their Amac boxes, and the various display cases they sell (baseball cases, mini car cases. hockey puck cases, etc).
15. Should I keep my figures sealed?
That is, of course, up to you really, but here are a few things to keep in mind when debating this question:
  • Keeping it sealed can actually damage your figure. PVC figures usually have something called plasticizer in them, and that plasticizer needs to be able to breath. If a PVC figure isn’t exposed to oxygen, after a period of time the plasticizer starts to break down and form a sticky substance on the surface of the figure. Simply opening your figures and taking them out of the box prevents this from happening. If you happen to find plasticizer goo on one of your figures, Kahotan has a handy guide for dealing with it.
  • Unlike some other figure markets, keeping an anime figure sealed won’t raise its value by a whole lot. In fact, because of the plasticizer problem mentioned above, your figure could actually be in better condition if you open it versus keeping it sealed.

Finding the Right Figure(s) for You

16. There are so many figure companies! Who makes good figures?!
Obviously this is a very subjective question, but as a general starting point, here are a few well renowned figure companies:
  • Alter
  • Max Factory
  • Good Smile Company
  • Kotobukiya (usually hit or miss for people. Use your best judgement based off of the prototype)
  • Aquamarine
  • Flare
  • Stronger
17. I really love “series X / character X”- how can I check if any figures were ever made for it?
My Figure Collection can be your best friend here. Simply do a search on the name of the series or character using the search bar located at the top right of the screen, and all associated figures pop up!
Alternatively, if you’re looking at a figure’s MFC entry, most of the text under the “Details” section can be clicked on and used to run a search.
18. How can I commission a custom figure?
None of the major figure companies (Alter, Kotobukiya, Good Smile Company, etc.) will take a commission for a single figure. This thread has a few websites in it that you can check out, or you can look into garage kits. Some kit painters would be willing to resculpt, frankenstein together, or otherwise modify kits for the right price.
If you're looking for help completing a garage kit, /brushforhire may be useful.

Keeping Up with New Announcements

19. How can I keep up with figure news (announcements, updates, etc.)?
Most people use a MFC combined with any or all of the following news sites:
To use MFC for this I’ll quote question #9.
If you make an account on MFC you can also subscribe to comments, changes, and pictures via a checkbox on the right hand side of a figure’s listing. Subscribing to any of these things will allow MFC to send you an email anytime the subscription in question updates. Subscribing to “changes” is a great way to keep up with release dates and delays, among other things.
Most companies have one or more Twitter accounts. Some examples: Good Smile Company sales, Good Smile's USA branch, Max Factory, AmiAmi Hobby News.
20. Everyone’s excited about something called Wonfes….. what the heck is that?!
WonFes (short for Wonder Festival) is a biannual figure expo where many figure producers (both large and small) show off new sculpts and updates to figures already under way. Most companies save their most exciting announcements for WonFes, so we all look forward to the expo whenever it rolls around! Winter Wonder Festival is usually held in February, while Summer Wonder Festival is usually in July. The event has also spread to Shanghai, in the late spring.
21. One or two (or 15) figures were announced at WonFes that I’m really excited about! How can I keep track of their progress once the event is over?
MFC is always really quick about getting new WonFes announcements (or any others throughout the year, for that matter) listed in their database, so we suggest using that. To find a figure from the event you can search any number of things, including the name of the character or the name of the show. You can also use the tag search to search “WonderFestival 20xx_[season]” to see all items announced at that event.

2020.09.24 00:38 atokadelggon Updated Walmart Jargon, acronyms, initialisms, and information you should know

4 years ago, u/melantonpsn created a jargon list for use by this subreddit. Due to recent updates and changes in the company, I decided to update said list.
If you're still out there, melantonpsn, thank you for your hard work in creating the original list
This is mainly just a copy/paste of their original list, with the new changes added in along with things I've learned from personal experience. It may not be 100% correct, but that is where you come in! If you see anything on here that appears to be wrong, or don't see something that you feel should be, please let me know so I can update the list. This is meant to help everyone, especially new associates, so it is imperative that we have the correct information.

Without further ado, I present to you the list:
Types of Stores:
SC: A supercenter
Div 1: a smaller type of store. It carries less items and does not have fresh departments.
NHM: Neighborhood Market
Sam's Club: A Walmart company that requires a membership to shop at
Store Positions
SM: the store manager. This is the highest role in stores. They are the ones in charge of the entire place.
SL: Store Lead. This position exists only in certain stores. They work directly opposite the store manager, helping to run the day to day operations of the store.
Coach: A salaried member of management who runs a wide area. The amount of coaches you have in your store will be determined by your store, as will what they are over. They report directly to the store manager.
Coach Trainee: An hourly member of management who is in training to become a Coach.
ASM: A salaried member of management who runs a specific area, much like a coach. Most of these positions were phased out with the introduction of the Coach role, but a few still remain. They report to the store leads or, in the absence of store leads, the store manager.
APASM: A salaried member of management in charge of all things AP. This is mainly things like theft, but can also include other things as well.
TL: Team Lead. Directly under the coach, these hourly supervisors run a small team. They work to develop the members of that team. They may also act as the manager on duty in the absence of a salaried member of management (must have training to do so).
AT: Academy trainers. This position currently only exists in NHMs. This position is in charge of training new employees. In Supercenters, this role falls to the team lead.
TA: Team associate. This is the regular associates of Walmart.
DM: Department Manager. This position has been almost completely phased out, save for a few exceptions. Their job is to run a specific department.
Claims Supervisor: The person in charge of claims.
APA: Asset Protection Associate. This person is meant to help stop theft. They will often roam the store, keeping an eye on customers whom they deem suspicious and will deal with theft issues as they arise.
SC(O)H: Self checkout host. This person watches over the self checkouts, helping customers and looks for items not scanned.
APCH: AP Customer Host. This person is in charge of doing receipt checks at the doors.
Stockman: a cart pusher
Mod Associate: an Associate who sets mods. Often based on overnights.
People Lead: often referred to as HR, they are the ones in charge of orientations, hiring, etc.
Old Positions
Cap 1: in charge of cleaning up freight and capping grocery and consumable bins. Replaced by stocking team 1
Cap Supervisor: In charge of Cap 1. Replaced by Stocking Lead 1
FCAP 1: Fresh cap team 1. In charge of working the Meat, Produce, Bakery, and Deli Freight and capping. Replaced by Meat/Produce team, bakery team, and deli team.
FCAP 1 Supervisor: In charge of FCAP 1. Replaced by Meat/Produce Lead, Bakery Lead, and Deli Lead
Cap 2: In charge of unloading the GM truck and working freight in grocery and consumables. Replaced by Stocking Team 2
Cap 2 Supervisor: In charge of Cap 2. Replaced by Stocking Lead 2.
Support Manager: A position in charge of various things across the stores. Often referred to as "Managements bitch", they basically do whatever salaried members of management ask of them while often helping to run the store. Often viewed as a stepping stone between hourly management and salaried management.
FCAP 2: Fresh Cap 2. In charge of capping, culling, and doing markdowns for Meat, Produce, Bakery, and Deli. Replaced by Meat/Produce team, Bakery Team, and Deli Team.
ON: Overnights. In charge of different things which vary by store, but usually FDD freight, finishing up Grocery and consumable freight, and working GM Freight. Replaced by Stocking Team 3
ON Support Manager: In charge of overnights. They report directly to the overnight asm. Were also MODs in the lack of a salaried member of management. Replaced by Stocking Lead 3.
CSM: customer service manager. Often found to be wearing yellow vests, they are in charge of running the front end. Replaced by Front End Lead
Grocery Doors: The entrance doors at the front of the store on the grocery side. Will stay open for as long as the store is open.
GM Doors: The entrance doors at the front of the store on the GM side. Will often close earlier in the evening, funneling everyone through the grocery doors.
TLE: Tire and Lube Express. Also known as ACC (auto care center)
HBA: Health and Beauty Aids. Also known as HBC (Health and Beauty Care)
OTC: Over the Counter. Refers to Pharmacy
L&G: Lawn and Garden
FDD: Frozen, Dairy, and Deli
CO: Cash Office
Front End: The front of the store. The front end is usually located between the two entrances. It includes all the registers at the front of the store and the service desk, but also includes positions like maintenance and stockmen.
Sales Floor: The area customers have available to shop
Back Room: The employee-only area. This is where trucks are unloaded and overstock goes. HR, Management Offices (except AP), and the break room are also located back here.
Softlines: Apparel departments
Consumables: Items that people use often. These include HBA, Cosmetics, Chemicals, Paper goods, Infants, OTC, and Pets.
Entertainment: everything often referred to as "electronics".
Grocery: any food or drink item, not including fresh
Fresh: Meat, Produce, Deli, and Bakery.
Homelines: Things you would use in a home. Things like bedding, furniture, cooking items, etc. are located in this area.
Hardlines: Basically everything else that doesn't fit into the above categories. These are things people may want, but aren't a necessity.
Action Alley
Action Alley: these are the areas in between departments. They are where customers and associates alike will walk as they are often the quickest ways around the store. They also will have features inside of them to increase sales.
B Action Alley: The Action Alley that separates grocery from apparel
The Cross: the section that separates apparel departments. As apparel is often a different color from the rest of the floor, it is easy to see the division here.
Horse Shoe: Toys, ACC, Hardware, HBA and OTC. When looking at them from a birds eye view, they will often make a horseshoe shape, but this is not in all stores.
Bowling Alley: the area between apparel and the front end registers. It is said that customers often look like bowling pins when they are lined up. May also be called the trench.
Main Alley: The back most action alley. May also be known as Long Action Alley or Back Action Alley
Race Track: All of the action alleys combined
Wet Wall: Located in Produce, its the wall with the fresh vegetables on it. Will often have rugs underneath to absorb excess moisture as there are sprinklers on this wall.
Meat Wall: The area where meat is sold
End Cap: At the end of all aisles that aren't against a wall. Features are set here to capture customer's eyes and sell more product.
While zoning, Walmart employs a method known as fast zoning. To do a proper fast zone, take the following steps:
  1. for the first layer (the layer touching the shelf) start at the edge of the shelf closest to you.
  2. Fill all the way back until you reach the end of the shelf. Do not stack anything until this first layer is completed.
  3. After the first layer is completed, you may start the second layer. The second layer (and all layers above this) start at the back of the shelf and come forward. Do not start another layer until the previous layer is full.
Case: a box of freight that holds multiple items inside of it that go on the shelf.
PDQ: Product Display Quantity. Some products will come in special cases meant to show off the product better. Also known as SRPs (Shelf Ready Packaging)
Breakpacks: the mixed boxes that come off the truck that will have small items in them that couldn't be thrown into the truck. May also be referred to as Totes, One Touch, or Casepack.
Fast track: The piece of plastic that holds the shelf labels
Bunkers: Located in grocery, these are the frozen or chilled areas not connected to the walls. They are often used for features. Also known as cooler bunker
Stackbase: a 4x4 plastic/wooden pallet that goes in action alley. Holds features.
COMAC: Food features that Home Office mandates

2020.09.23 18:47 Fit_Amphibian4410 Need help attracting girl - or do i just cut my losses

Hi all,

so basically me (M20) on a drunken afternoon six months ago strolled into my local chinese takeaway and came across a new employe (F17). Instantly, I was taken back by this girl, she was just my type, petit, brunette, funny, smiley etc. We built a little rapport and I gave her my Snapchat, to which we started talking semi-regularly.
The highlight of my week is on a Saturday evening, going down to see her when she works.
I have tried numerous times to take things further, whenever I suggest dinner or a drink, she bites my hand off when in person, then when I follow up in the week over SC she just ignores it. I would then accept defeat and go about my life, to which within a matter of one or two days, she would always spark up a convo again. This has been repeated 3/4 times, to the point where i stopped asking about a date as she always used to leave me on read.
However, whenever I go in to see her on a Saturday, she is always flirty and keen. Even when i compliment her she will say " see this is why you should date me"
I sent her a long text around a month ago, basically just saying is this going anywhere, I would love to get to see her more, than just half-hour every Saturday evening, and every time I ask, you leave me on read, if she just wants to be friends be honest. I got a cryptic reply, but basically illuded to the fact that she did want to go on a date, but she was just nervous etc etc. She said she would love to see me more too, I didn't really buy the nervous excuse. However, a few days later, suggested mini golf, and she ignored me again.
Saw her last Saturday and she was talking about it being her 18th soon and where am i taking her (as a joke). I said that i would love to take her for cocktails, but she never wants to go on a date wich is why I stopped asking her. She then alluded to the age gap and just said that once she is 18, she feels that she will be old enough to go out with me on a date, etc etc and she would love to accept my invite to go for cocktails on her 18th.
She just text me today saying that she is gutted that she didn't see me this Saturday and i asked about if we were still going for drinks next weekend for her birthday and she ignored me. I followed it up and said don't avoid the question, i don't mind either way but just let me know if i need to book somewhere. She said "i just feel with Covid at the moment its a little risky so let's go sometime in the future"

So here's my question. 1) is she interested? my heart tells me no. I feel that due to her age, she likes the attention and the idea of me, but she doesn't actually want to date me, she just wants me as an option, or someone to enjoy a chat with on a Saturday night and text etc. And thats maybe why when i don't talk to her for a bit, she messages me to check that im still interested and an option.
Secondly, how do i get her to actively want/chase me. Without being arrogant, i genuinely feel that if i could take her on jsut one date, that everything would just flow from there. Its just breaking that initial barrier. We have crazy chemistry and always laughing when with each over.

Any help would be great. I genuinely actually like this girl, and really am into her. I would love to take things further, but just feel that she maybe doesn't want the same. Which is fine, i can live with that, but just need to know if there is light on the horizon, or if I should stop wasting my time. Any help is so greatly appreciated,

Thank you.

TL;DR : need help to make a casual person that i text every now and then and see 20 mins a week, agree to go on a date with me, or actively want to pursue me/ take things further. How to seem more attractive to her as a man?

2020.09.23 01:56 blackofallgrays Moving to SC: Living & Biking Safely?

TL;DR: Hello Santa Cruz locals, I noticed this question has been asked, but most posts seem to be out of date:
What areas of SC should be avoided? When? And how safe is commuting by bike in SC?
Long version: I will be moving to SC from across the country in a week. I have living in California for the past year doing AmeriCorps (I'm currently back home), but it was in Napa, which is fairly mild compared to what I read about SC. I am from a small town in the south, and just want to make sure that I am aware of what I'm in for. I will be renting a room on Younglove, and will need to commute to the corner of 7th/Rodriguez. I know this is a decent commute, but I was hoping to bike it from time to time. I do own a car and will have it in SC. With that said, my questions are above.
My research so far: I have read mention of avoiding Laurel, Ocean, the Flats, and the Boardwalk.
I also found this picture that highlights certain areas:

2020.09.22 22:30 Alprovan Every Vote is Going to Count In Order to Send Trump Home, or to Prison, Whichever Comes First. Your Vote is Important!

Every vote counts this election, even if you live in a red state, as I do.
If Joe Biden is elected and if at least four seats are flipped to the Democrats, the repairs to this nation and it’s people can begin.
Mail-in voting is the key to turning out more votes, but it is going to take planning on behalf of everyone to get those ballots in on time. If you are interested in voting by mail, in most states, you will have to request ballots be mailed to you. Requesting mail ballots information can be found by visiting your local County election website.
I live in northwest Georgia. I have voted by mail for years, as I am disabled, and because I am disabled, I only have to request one time to have every relative ballot sent to me for an entire election year, including primary, runoff, special, and final election ballots. Otherwise, I would have to request each ballot event separately.
Georgia amazingly, despite it’s love and devotion by it’s leaders to Trump, has decided to allow any and all registered voters to vote by mail, with no excuses demanded, despite being a red state and governed by a former Secretary of State who did everything he could to fix an election that he did win, barely.
So, you can download a ballot request in Georgia up to 180 days before an electoral date. The ballot request must be faxed or mailed to the county elections office. No fax machine? No problem. I have never failed to receive a ballot requested.
Ballots in my county are mailed out quite early and I make sure to mail it back in almost as fast as I get them. Unfortunately, in Georgia, the voter must affix the return postage for the ballot and they are very picky about following every instruction, including putting the ballot in a special envelope inside the return envelope, etc. - and signing a statement, blah blah blah. No postage, if required, rejected. No signature for comparison? Rejected. sure to follow those directions, to make your vote count!
Now...what is it looking like, pertaining to the states that are going to allow voting by mail?
Here’s a quick rundown;
If you live in the following FIVE states, you likely are very familiar with mail-in voting, because ballots are automatically mailed to every registered voters;
Thus, the list has grown to nine states that will automatically send out ballots to every registered voter;
These NINE states (and DC) will automatically send out mail-in ballot REQUESTS to every registered voter;
In the following TWENTY-FIVE states, you may, all by your lonesome, request an application for an absentee ballot, citing the Covid-19 virus, or it may be that the rules have been relaxed so that no reason for requesting a ballot is required;
And finally, and unfortunately, if you reside in the following states, Covid-19 is not a valid reason for requesting an absentee ballot, thus forcing their residents to vote in person, unless something changes VERY soon;
I cannot imagine why New York is on that last list. That is a blue state.
But looky here – at least seventeen red states are opening the doors for mail-in voting. It doesn’t come without a little extra effort on the part of the voter, but it can be done. That’s at least a little progress, isn’t it?
Real progress will come whenever we can get on our computers or phones and securely log onto a voting website, satisfactorily identify ourselves, and cast our votes. That can be done easily and with present day technology. How do I know it? I recently renewed my driver’s license and my auto registrations online. My identity was easy to verify and it was required for both.

VALUES AND MISSION STATEMENT The Critical Media Literacy Conference of The Americas is committed to democratic ideals and social justice values. We engage with media as a dialectical space for critique and celebration. Media are complex tools whose effects do not always match intentions. Media can promote democratic participation, support social justice, and bring considerable joy, but they can hinder democracy, stoke violence, and manipulate individuals and society. Our goal for this conference is to facilitate critical discourse about our mediated society with the intent to deepen our understandings and support each other’s work in transforming society to be more socially just and environmentally sustainable.

My Photos
My thoughts -
Oh my, what a beautiful bag!
I’ve compared this bag to the authentic bags on , Youtube , and Poshmark and this rep is almost dead on. There aren’t any glaring issues.
Cons The packaging was awful. It was chucked into the dust bag then jammed it into the cardboard box—no box or bubble wrap. When the box arrived at my doorstep, there was a nice crater on its side (I wish I had taken a photo, but I’d rather bury the memory). Thus, when I unpacked it, the bag had a dent on its side (see my photos). I stuffed the inside with a thick towel so it’s kind of ironed itself out. If I buy from this seller again, I will definitely request for more thoughtful packaging.
A minor flaw is the stitching on the underside of the strap, there are some loose threads and an extra thread between the letters (see my photos). From a distance it’s virtually undetectable and the color of the bag helps camouflage it, but it’s noticeable up close. It’s definitely not calloutable as long as you wear the strap the correct way. I’m thinking about snipping the excess threads, but I fear the embroidery may unravel.
Not necessarily a con, as much as a annoyance is the material of the bag. The authentic retails for $4,500 USD, which is an absurd amount for any cloth bag. It’s high maintenance to handle and you’ll definitely have to baby it. It attracts lint easily. I’m constantly picking off random pieces of fluff (thank god I don’t have a dog or a cat 😅). I’ll carry a travel-size lint roller inside the bag and I’ll definitely treat it with fabric spray before I carry it outside.
Would I recommend? Yes! Aside from the packaging, the bag is gorgeous and I love the grey and gold together. I communicated with the seller via DHGate and they always replied within 5 minutes and they shipped the bag two days after I ordered. *Note: On the date I ordered, the seller had a really diverse bag catalogue on DHG with lots of positive reviews, but they’ve since deleted 99% of their items. I have their Yupoo, if anyone is interested in seeing their catalogue, they have quite an eclectic selection.
I hope you enjoyed reading. I had fun putting this together. Thank you Repladies for this creative idea! 😊

2020.09.22 00:26 NeverSinkDev [LOOTFILTER] NeverSink's Itemfilter 7.10.1 - Heist Highlighting Improvements

[LOOTFILTER] NeverSink's Itemfilter 7.10.0 - HEIST

So after playing Heist for several days, this update employs the knowledge and economy information to highlight items in a better way. The highlights for most heist gear has been changed.
  • Markers no longer have minimap icons or sounds and have a alteration-like appearance (with a red-ish-border)
  • Follower gear now has max fontsize (instead of default one) and always comes with a dropsound. Additionally I've strengthened the map icon.
  • Contracts now have red bordetext scheme
  • Some other items have been adjusted.
Additionally I've integrated all the new uniques, divination cards etc. into the ecnomy tiering system.
In other news, I've pulled 2x Brother's Stash (5ex-div-card with 1/1) from 20 stacked decks today. Yep.
Happy heisting exiles! - is of course also updated!
Want to watch me code/poe, get live updates or support the project?:


Source Description (DOWNLOAD) Recommended way of downloading the filter. Has support for all strictness, styles and economy versions! Includes overview, explanations and a loot simulator. Experienced users can also edit filters there comfortably and merge their changes into new versions. Always up-to-date!
POE site filter list You can subscribe to my POE filter account to receive auto-updates. However, you can't customize these and it has no style support! Come in SC/HC economy versions.
GitHub Mostly for developers: you can also get the filters from GitHub! There's a SC, HC and stable/static branch


The Filter changelogs can always be found here: CHANGELOGS
The FilterBlade changelogs can be found on the FilterBlade discord: DISCORD

Filter and Styleversions

Higher strictnesses filter more items. The general rule is that: the faster you are, the less you want to pick up, because in the time you'd take care of a higher quantity of items, you can kill more monsters and get a higher chance at expensive loot and experience. You can start with RegulaSemi-Strict first (great for new players and leagues) and simply up the strictness from the option menu, once you feel like you want to see less.
Nr Name Short Description
0 Soft Shows too much. Includes low crafting bases, magic jewellery in the endgame. Not recommended for regular gameplay.
1 Regular Shows a lot. Recommended for beginners, new leagues and slow-clearing gameplay. Shows all rares. Good for chaos recipes.
2 Semi-Strict Healthy balance. Great for new leagues and beginners and medium-speed endgame gameplay. Hides the worst rares. Good for chaos recipes.
3 Strict Hides bad-base rares and scrolls in the endgame. Disables most recipes. Recommended endgame strictness.
4 Very Strict Hides most rares, scrolls, augments, armourers. Good for the endgame and for farming once your character is well equipped.
5 Uber Strict Hides all low currencies and rares. Great for speed-farming, once you have a highly optimized build and atlas! Hides maps of tier 10 and lower.
6 Uber+ Strict Shows too little. Sterile screen. Hides all kind of stuff, including mediocre divination cards, all kind of crafting material etc. Recommended for high-speed clearing, once your character is top tier geared, your atlas complete and optimized and you're breezing through maps very fast! Hides maps of tier 13 and lower.
Styles have no effect on how strict the filter is, but change the visual and audio configuration. Find one that pleases your eye most or make your own on . FilterBlade also comes with a preview comparison/feature for styles and strictnesses.

Special thanks to...

  • Tobnac and Haggis - the 2 others minds behind filterblade + great friends
  • A special thank you to all the Patreons! A special thanks goes to: Ryndaar, Phegan, Matt O.,Henry G., Reilly M!
  • A special thanks to my discord and twitch community!
Happy Hunting Exiles,

2020.09.21 23:30 TheManIsNonStop [Event] The Khaleeji Defense Force

January 2031
In theory, the Armed Forces of Oman, the UAE, Qatar, Bahrain, and Kuwait were merged into a single federal Defense Force (officially, the "Defense Force of the Federated Arab States of the Khaleej", but usually just referred to as the "Khaleeji Defense Force") under the command of the President of the Federated Arab States with the creation of the new Union in 2030.
Unfortunately, it turns out that integrating five armies into a unified command structure is a little more difficult than writing words on a piece of paper. The "unified" Khaleeji Defense Force is anything but, with units still exhibiting loyalty to their old command structures. While units from Oman and Kuwait may theoretically answer to the command structure in Abu Dhabi, in practice, they effectively maintain their own parallel command, administrative, and logistic structures. This, of course, is an absolute disaster waiting to happen if the FAS enter into a serious armed conflict, as it will inhibit the ability of central command to exert its will over its subordinate units, hampering interoperability and making victory more difficult to achieve.
Another major issue in a segregated military structure like this is the segregation of military units by "nationality" (that is, which constituent nation they are from). Kuwaitis only serve with Kuwaitis, Omanis only serve with Omanis, etc. This contributes to the issue of dual power and parallel governance, as it results in soldiers that exhibit loyalties to sub-national entities rather than to the protection of the national entity as a whole. Much like the UAE's Union Defense Forces subsumed the militaries of the individual Emirates in the 2000s, so to must this new military force subsume the militaries of the individual constituent states if it is to become a true fighting force capable of protecting the FAS from threats foreign and domestic.
To rectify this, the Khaleeji Defense Force is set to undergo an all-encompassing series of reforms to unify the command structures, ranks, doctrine, and logistics. The reforms will see the theoretically centralized Defense Force made into an actually centralized Defense Force, with a unified command structure that sees Kuwaitis, Omanis, Bahrainis, Emiratis, and Qataris fight side-by-side in defense of their country, singular. Units will be integrated, outdated equipment will be removed from service, and uniform conscription laws will be implemented throughout the whole of the country's territory. These reforms will be implement over the next three years, concluding in 2034.

The Khaleeji Defense Force

Male FAS nationals will be subjected to mandatory conscription (as is already the case in most of the Arab Gulf States). Men who have finished secondary school will have to serve eighteen months (four months of training, fourteen months of service) with another two years in the reserves, while men who did not finish secondary school will have to serve three years with another two years in the reserves. Reservists (both those who have volunteered for reserve service and those who are doing their mandatory reservist duty) will train one weekend every month and two weeks every December, for a total of 36 days every year. Women are not subjected to the draft, but are welcome to serve in all non-infantry roles in the Khaleeji Defense Force. Service for both sexes is rewarded by a range of benefits from the federal government, including competitive pay, priority hiring for government jobs, and preferred applicant status for housing plots, scholarships, and marriage grants.
Rank Structure
The rank structure of the Khaleeji Defense Force mostly follows the British rank structure. In the tradition of other Arab militaries, enlisted ranks are uniform across all services (that is, an OR-9 is a Warrant Officer across all service branches). The rank structure is laid out as follows:
Commissioned Officer Ranks
NATO Code OF-10 OF-9 OF-8 OF-7 OF-6 OF-5 OF-4 OF-3 OF-2 OF-1
Service Branch
Army No Equivalent Fariq Awwal (General) Fariq (Lieutenant General) Liwa (Major General) Amid (Brigadier) Aqid (Colonel) Muqaddam (Lieutenant Colonel) Ra'id (Major) Naqib (Captain) Mulazim Awwal (Lieutenant) and Mulazim (Second Lieutenant)
Navy No Equivalent Fariq Awwal Bahriin (Admiral) Fariq Bahriin (Vice Admiral) Liwa Bahriin (Rear Admiral) Amid Bahriin (Commodore) Aqid Bahriin (Captain) Muqaddam Bahriin (Commander) Ra'id Bahriin (Lieutenant Commander) Naqib Bahriin (Lieutenant) Mulazim Awwal Bahriin (Sub-lieutenant) and Mulazim Bahriin (Midshipman)
Air Force No Equivalent Fariq Awwal Tayar (Air Chief Marshal) Fariq Tayar (Air Marshal) Liwa Tayar (Air Vice-Marshal) Amid Tayar (Air Commodore) Aqid Tayar (Group Captain) Muqaddam Tayar (Wing Commander) Ra'id Tayar (Squadron Leader) Naqib Tayar (Flight Lieutenant) Mulazim Awwal Tayar (Flying Officer) and Mulazim Tayar (Pilot Officer)
Enlisted Ranks
NATO Code OR-9 OR-8 OR-7 OR-6 OR-5 OR-4 OR-3 OR-2 OR-1
Mosa'id Awwal (Chief Warrant Officer) Mosa'id (Warrant Officer) Raqib Awwal (Staff Sergeant) Raqib (Sergeant) Raqib (Sergeant) Corporal ('Arif) No Equivalent Jondi Awwal (Private First Class) Jondi (Private)

Khaleeji Land Forces

New Structure
The Khaleeji Army (officially the Land Forces) will have a sanctioned strength of 85,000 active duty nationals, to be supplemented by a further 66,000 reservists and 40,000 foreign nationals, divided into four active duty brigades, four reserve brigades, a special operations command (consisting of a ceremonial Life Guards regiment, a special forces brigade, and a battalion-sized elite special forces unit), and the Foreign Legion (comprised of two brigade-sized ground units and a smaller, but still brigade-sized marine regiment).
Regular Army
Brigades in the Khaleeji Land Forces are set to be modeled after the American Brigade Combat Team, consisting of three Combined Arms Battalions (in Mechanized Brigades, this will be two Mechanized Battalions and one Armor Battalion, while in Armored Brigades, it will be one Mechanized Battalion and two Armor Battalions). Both brigades will have roughly 4,500 combat personnel, supported by an additional 12,000 or so personnel, for a total of roughly 16,500 soldiers per BCT.
These brigades will be split between two regional commands. Northern Command, which covers Kuwait (as it is separated from the rest of the country), will have one Armored Brigade, one Mechanized Brigade, and one more of each held in reserve. Central Command, which covers the rest of the country (Oman, UAE, Qatar, Bahrain) will have two Mechanized Brigades, one Armored Brigade, and one Mechanized Brigade and one Armored Brigade held in reserve.
Foreign Legion
The Khaleeji Land Forces will include a Foreign Legion, inherited from the Emirati Foreign Legion created in 2025. However, the Khaleeji Foreign Legion will see some major organizational changes from its Emirati equivalent.
The first are related to the composition of the Legion and its service terms. The current six-year service obligation will be increased to eight years, with legionnaires becoming eligible to apply for citizenship after six years (legionnaires wounded in the line of duty will still receive citizenship immediately). After the initial eight-year service term, legionnaires will have the option to renew for additional four- or six-year terms of service (those who sign up for six years will be paid more than those who signed up for four years). Those who do not sign additional service terms, but are accepted as citizens, will have to serve another two years in the reserves of the regular army (where they will still receive competitive compensation, while also be able to pursue non-military careers outside of their reservist service), where they will make up an experienced core of personnel to build the reserve units around. The sanctioned size of the Foreign Legion will also be increased from 20,000 to 38,000.
The second major change is to its structure. Currently, the Foreign Legion is divided into ten regiments (two armor, four mechanized, one training, one combat engineers, one artillery, one military police, and one marine). To bring the Foreign Legion structure in line with that of the rest of the Land Forces, armor and mechanized regiments will be merged into two Foreign Regiments, with each functioning as a Mechanized Brigade Combat Team. The old regiments, now "battalions," will serve as the Combined Arms core of these largest regiments (so the 2nd Foreign Armor Regiment, rather than being an independent unit, is now the 2nd Foreign Armor Battalion, serving as one of the three combined arms battalions of the 1st Foreign Rifles Regiment). The combat engineer, artillery, and military police regiments will be converted into the support elements for these new regiments (so the 1st Foreign Artillery Regiment will serve as the parent regiment for the artillery units inside of the 1st and 2nd Foreign Rifle Regiments).
The 1st Foreign Marine Regiment will be reorganized to mirror the organization of a United States Marine Corps Marine Expeditionary Unit. Foreign legionnaires will make up the enlisted personnel (and some of the officers, for the more experienced legionnaires) of the ground combat element, the logistics combat elements, and part of the ground crew of the aviation combat element. The 1st Foreign Marine Regiment will also be under the Special Operations Command, rather than the Foreign Legion HQ. Just simpler that way.
Special Operations Command
Using the UAE's Presidential Guard as a backbone with some supplements from the special forces of the other states, the Special Operations Command is composed of three subordinate units (plus the 1st Foreign Marine Regiment, loaned from the Foreign Legion HQ).
The first is the battalion-strength President's Life Guards Regiment. This regiment is in the Land Forces only as a matter of ceremony. As it is responsible for the protection of the President of the Federated Arab States' person and family as well as the Federal Presidential Palace in Abu Dhabi, it will not be deployed in any sort of combat capacity.
The bulk of the Special Operation Command's forces are organized under the President's Royal Rifles, an elite infantry brigade drawn from the cream-of-the-crop of the Khaleeji Land Forces (who have to go through a demanding training course before accepted into the brigade). Organized along the lines of a US Army Infantry Brigade Combat Team, the President's Royal Rifles is the true multi-tool of the Khaleeji Land Forces, capable of air assault, paradrop, amphibious assault, counter-insurgency/counter-terrorism, or ground service in a motorized role. Think US Army Rangers.
The last unit of the Special Forces Command is the battalion-sized President's Special Service. Drawn from the absolute best personnel in the Khaleeji Defense Force, the President's Special Service is analogous to other top special forces units like the US Army's Delta Force and the United Kingdom's Special Air Service. PSS personnel are trained in various methods of deep insertion, including combat diving, amphibious assault, paradrop, and air assault. Applicants will be drawn primarily from highly qualified individuals in the President's Royal Rifles.

Khaleeji Air Force

Note: The Khaleeji Navy, Land Forces, and Air Force all operate their own fixed-wing and rotary-wing aircraft. For convenience’s sake, this section will discuss only the Land Force and Air Force air wings. Naval Aviation will be handled separately.
Following unification, the Khaleeji Defense Force has a staggering number of combat aircraft. Counting both rotary- and fixed-wing aircraft, the Khaleeji military aviation has almost 1,400 aircraft, placing it comfortably in the top ten militaries in terms of combat aircraft (around the level of regional powers like Japan, Pakistan, France, and Turkey).
In theory, this wouldn’t be too bad, but in practice, it is an absolute nightmare. Those 1,400 aircraft are divided over 114 different types of aircraft, each with their own logistical requirements. Worse still, many of these aircraft are horribly dated--Bahrain’s Air Force pre-unification was still regularly operating its squadron of F-5 Tiger IIs, while Kuwait still operates three squadrons of F/A-18C/D Hornets. Even the UAE, the largest military in the union, is not without its dated aircraft, with over 50 Mirage 2000s still on its rosters. The situation in Army Aviation is even worse, with the Joint Aviation Command operating dinosaurs like the AH-1E Cobra, the SA342L Gazelle, and the SA316 Alouette III.
Put simply, maintaining this large of an Air Force is untenable for the FAS--especially if a quarter of the aircraft are basically useless dinosaurs. The Khaleeji Defense Force is looking to significantly downsize its inventory of aircraft over the next five years, shedding older equipment to be replaced by more modern alternatives.
Khaleeji defense policy is hoping to use air superiority as a force multiplier against numerically superior neighbors like Iran, Iraq, and Pakistan, or as a first line of defense against outside powers like China attempting to project force into the FAS. As such, autonomous and unmanned aerial combat systems are of big interest to the FAS--an interest largely inherited from the UAE, who has spent the last decade developing numerous UAVs and UCAVS, including an unmanned variant of its new light utility/attack helicopter, and has spent the last few years looking into an upgrade package to convert the F-16 into an autonomous (or at least unmanned) aircraft. These research projects are expected to continue in the FAS.
Owing to the massive wealth of the FAS but the small base of nationals from which to draw personnel for the Khaleeji Defense Force, the FAS has to find places to reduce manpower requirements wherever possible without making undue sacrifices to national security. The use of private military contractors provides an effective avenue to reduce the number of uniformed service members by outsourcing certain military functions to private firms.
The Khaleeji Air Force is expected to make extensive use of MRO contractors like government-owned AL TAIF and AMMROC, both of whom have been providing MRO work for NATO and allied deployments in the Arabian Gulf for the past five years, for maintenance and repair on its vast fleet of aircraft.
The other area where private contractors are expected to see significant use is in pilot training. The FAS is set to outsource much of its basic rotary- and fixed-wing training responsibilities to government-owned Horizon Flight Academy, where private contractors (largely retired military personnel from places like the United States, United Kingdom, and France, but with a not insignificant number of retired KDF personnel) will train the next generation of KDF pilots.
Horizon has also announced the creation of a new aggressor training squadron in the vein of American firm Draken International. Using former pilots from NATO militaries and regional air forces, Horizon Flight Academy will provide aggressor training and threat simulation services to the Khaleeji Air Force (as well as other interested Air Forces in the MENA region) to increase combat readiness. The KDF has announced that a number of the aircraft being retired from the KAF will be sold to Horizon Flight Academy for use in their aggressor training services, including the F-5 Tiger II (used by Iran), the F-16 (used by Iraq, Israel, and Turkey), and the F-15 Strike Eagle (used by Saudi Arabia, but more importantly, Israel). Horizon Flight Academy will also make attempts to purchase three Mirage F1s from Morocco (one of the only countries other than Iran still using the aircraft) and a dozen F-4 Phantom IIs (used by Iran) from Japan.

Khaleeji Navy

Traditionally, the Arab States of the Gulf have maintained small brown-water navies focused on coastal defense and EEZ enforcement. Prior to 2020, the only constituent state to operate frigates was Bahrain, who operated two decommissioned Oliver Hazard Perry-class frigates from the United States (since then, the UAE Navy acquired . Green- and blue-water naval efforts were largely left to the United States, who has long served as the guarantor of regional security for the Arab States of the Gulf (as highlighted by their intervention against China during the 2028 Gulf Crisis).
The KDF was fairly certain that this state of affairs would continue to remain in place, even as newly-elected President Santana’s platform included a plank that would see the US end its alliance with “undemocratic nations”--AKA, the Arab Gulf States. American domestic politics has always broadcast a desire to “stand down,” and so far it hasn’t materialized, so why should we get all worked up about it?
And then she actually went and did it, ordering the US military to withdraw from several critical postings in the region, including Iraq, Syria, and Afghanistan. While she hasn’t announced any plans to withdraw from the Gulf yet, this change in American foreign policy is enough to have spooked the KDF, with some inside the Khaleeji Navy arguing that the FAS needs to develop a green-water navy capable of protecting its interests in the Indian Ocean and Gulf of Oman--fast.
While developing new green-water capabilities, the Khaleeji Navy also needs to focus on updating and modernizing its brown-water capabilities. A considerable portion of the Khaleeji Navy’s combat vessels are getting a little long in the tooth, many having been procured in the ‘80s and ‘90s, and are approaching the end of their natural service life.
To this end, the Khaleeji Navy has announced a new procurement strategy aimed at developing two separate “fleets.” The first, the Indian Ocean Fleet based at Duqm in Oman, will maintain green-water capabilities, including a smattering of frigates, destroyers, submarines, and, eventually, a light carrier or LHD. The land-based naval aviation of the Indian Ocean Fleet is expected to focus primarily on long-range maritime patrol craft like the P-8 Poseidon with potentially a small complement of land-based naval bombers.
The second, the Arabian Gulf Fleet, will focus on lower tonnage craft (corvettes, fast attack craft, maybe a few frigates) for use in the littoral environment of the Gulf, with an eye towards countering the swarm tactics and submarine fleet of the numerically superior but technologically inferior Iranian Navy, while providing area denial services against larger navies from outside the Gulf itself. Land-based aircraft from both the KAF and the KN are expected to play an important in naval operations in the Gulf, such as close air support (the Iranian Navy mostly uses fast attack craft without any serious AA capabilities), ASW operations (largely using land-based MH-60 Romeos), and ISR (using the FAS’s growing drone capabilities).

2020.09.21 14:50 Draemeth [For Hire] Marketing and SEO

My name is Zack Frederick and I started doing marketing several years ago as i began my first yoga ‘e-business', realising very quickly that the difference between me and the next John Doe wasn’t the product but the presentation. So I set about, by trial and error, learning how I could sell more Yoga mats than John Doe. It wasn’t long before I realised I was very good at the marketing aspect, and I didn’t really like things like warehousing and distribution.
Today I’m most interested in building reports, designing paid campaigns and helping with Instagram.
I’ve compiled a few free tips for general marketing and SEO.

Brand awareness

First off. Influencers will not magically make your website successful. You have to be your own influencer. Over my tenor, I have spent thousands on social media analysis, rebranding and learning tricks like sticking state names across American products or even changing the colour of my website depending on the demographics of my audience. Spoilers, guys love red. Here’s an example data set.
Last year, I ran a campaign for one of my shoe clients, and we used the pride of state consumers to grow his shoe business. I researched the best colours to use for different states and gave him a list, we put the state names across his shoes and marketed directly to them through instagram. It wasn’t long before his conversion metrics were soaring.
Here's an example report from one of my clients -


I have worked with a lot of musicians, a big part of them started with low view, audio-only videos. I learnt quickly that for them to achieve success they had to provide value, so i told them to create videos. They did and then ta-da, they had 4500 views when they only had 200 view music videos before. For the next step, I even got them contacts with massive digital celebrities. My proudest connection having been ‘Ninja’ during the height of his fortnite campaign, I organised the marketing behind several viral Fortnite music parodies with now millions of views.

Trend riding

Make use of trends in your business. If something is so mainstream and big, why ignore it? In the past I have made use of the political trends in the American election with trump AND hillary brands on some of my clients products, with the pro trump and pro hillary supporters wanting to sport their political beliefs no matter the cost.
I see a lot of website based businesses underuse social media with broad attempts at Facebook ads and Instagram ads, ill go to digital marketing agencies and see they either have no social following or a huge botted one. It's a terrible idea to buy followers, if you want to cut corners then you should look at buying a smaller business with a bigger social following.
Here’s the impressions from a tweet I made on the first day of creating a company a twitter platform and using trend riding and collaboration to grow it 4K Impressions on one tweet in 15 minutes - we hit 80k impressions in the first day. I did this from simply mimiking the formula for success from a similiar company account, i don't want to try change the magic formula for success.



You really do have to stay in touch with your business to know what's working and what isn't, companies like Toys R Us refused to do that and stuck with huge stockpiles of star wars toys and then they collapsed. Blockbusters where ahead of the curve for digital movies and then they refused to change, Netflix changed and Netflix won. Amazon learnt to use online selling and left companies like Tescos with financial crisis.
The big boom in marketing that I’ve seen is social media marketing, marketers can create huge social following for companies and use that platform to sell content for extremely low costs in comparison to the tens of thousands it costs to use other platforms such as radio. Social media marketing has become somewhat controversial, but it is important to always stay open minded.

Collaboration** & Viral content

I can not stress the importance of working with other people. Every billionaire i know of has had a mentor, every big company success story had business partners. I've had far more success in clients who have listened to me and done collaborative work with digital celebs, with a dog product business making thousands of sales when they worked with vlogger Zoella and gave her free products.
Viral content is very important because every Youtuber with over 1 million subscribers has started off big and managed to keep it big, nobody grinded and slowly rose up at an equal exponent. Hard work is fine but being consistent and mixing it up, copying the viral content of others is an easy way of bringing in secondary viewership and traffic. Pewdiepie, the biggest youtuber on the planet, started with viral horror content. Ninja, the biggest streamer, grinded for 7 years but only truly struck gold with the virality of Fortnite. So it makes sense to repeat their methods.

Key words

It is an obvious thing to say but it's neglected, key words are very important. I had a crypto business come to me and ask why their site wasnt doing very well, and i looked through it and saw they never mentioned anything beyond bitcoin. Bitcoin is a very expensive key word to market, with costs of the raw word being as high as 38$ per click. I had to bring them down to earth with harsh truths, i rewrote their entire site using SEM tools in mind - with key words and phrases like "Altcoin exchange" and using the names of the top 100 altcoins across the site.


Search Engine Optimisation is the name given to increasing the value and raw volume of your organic traffic. A successful website always wants as many of the most likely consumer base to encounter their product because that’s the hardest point of digital business. Your websites SEO is determined by crawlers which regularly check up on your website and update their index which is later used by an algorithm to order results when someone ‘googles’ something.
Today I’m going to be talking you through some key points about SEO that I personally audit for businesses.


Https://Www.Example.Com is an example of something we call a ‘root domain’ which is made up of protocol (https://) subdomain (www.) domain name (example) and top-level domain (.com). These are the basic parts. It’s important that the protocol is the best and safest it can be or else google will punish you. It’s also important your domain name and top-level domain are appropriate and readable. The words used in your subdomain can also affect how customers interpret your website, websites can be named after their market base for easy marketing. In addition, the age and previous registrations of your domain matter. It’s important these factors are appropriately considered in your website. Be minimal with subdomains.


Google knows where it’s users are and what they’re using from their browser data, IPs and MACs and then matches them with websites in their areas or appropriate to searches. Ever since the infamous 2016 update ‘Possum’ it is not something you can ignore. Even jobs based websites had to use the meta data ‘Jobs Schema’ (from 2017 onwards) to tell google where your website was focused. Location specific landing pages matter. You have to pay credence to DNS (domain name server) and Glue to keep TTL (time to load) and mobile in mind, especially with more mobile users than ever. CMS (customs) is also part of this discussion: themes and plugins are a factor in Google’s ranking. One way to improve TTL is through CDN’s and we have to consider how we approach them to rank better. Sometimes, you might face penalties and there are ways to know; that’s a little too hard to explain here but PM me for more.


Nobody loves a book more than google. Robots will read all your website, even the stuff humans don’t bother with. Things like duplication will annoy Google who doesn’t like reading things twice. CTA’s (buttons basically) have to go somewhere nice and if they don’t work properly google will punish you. Human biases are important too. The user experience will effect their retention and Google will clock that. There’s also lots of minor things that can stack up: Filenames (help you rank on Images) Thin content (Google sees it as lazy) phrase diversity (spamming key words is noticed) and URL structures too! Make sure your in and outbound links are healthy as well as having keyword mapping where you assign the correct words to the right pages. Make sure your anchor texts (viewable when linking) are descriptive yet succinct. And finally: link velocity, a healthy eco system of link building is important to longevity and renewed SEO.

Technical Stuff.

Consistent anchor elements are important to prevent 404s. Don’t use abbreviations with naming files and folders. Limit use of dates for file folder names. Your site architecture has to be simple and close to the root domain so the click depth isn’t too great! Links to and from your site can’t be dead ends, and use breadcrumbs! Be wary of canonical issues from similar content across multiple URLs. Treat Cookies and Session IDs properly, privacy laws are ever changed and mismatching them can be dangerous. There’s lots more to go into like header status codes, site maps, GSC Crawl Errors but Reddit has a text limit so I’ve deleted some of my post.
