2023.06.10 12:21 hypospadias0 Can a security guard touch you?

I was walking through boots today and when I exited, one of the sensor alarms went off. I was already out of the shop when a security guard rushed to me and asked me to come back inside. He didn’t specify what he was going to do, he just kept asking which felt odd so I eventually said “check the cameras if you think I’ve done something wrong” and kept moving. I was curious so I looked up the law on this and it said they only have the right to detain you if they have a reasonable suspicion of a crime. It made me think though, would a sensor going off count as a reasonable suspicion of a crime and could they detain me? I feel like my instinct would be to defend myself if security ever put there hands on me and I did nothing wrong

2023.06.10 12:20 LiamGP We will go dark on June 12th in protest of Reddit's API changes that will effectively kill 3rd party apps

This subreddit will be joining in on the June 12th-14th protest of Reddit's API changes that will essentially kill all 3rd party Reddit apps.

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the desktop interface .
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.

What can you do as a user?

What can you do as a moderator?

Thank you for your patience in the matter,
-Mod Team

2023.06.10 12:20 Dragonproof_Castle M4F: Valkyrie Down: A 40k plot

Metal screeched into the sky, followed by thick gouts of smoke and sparks as the engine died, spluttering out with its turbines. The Valkyrie transport seemed to slump, dipping it’s nose before the pilot yanked back on the stick. Panicked, his partner twisted in his seat to check on the cargo, even as shells from Ork Autocannons slammed into the hold. Below, the toxic ash wastes beckoned, promising radioactivity and death. All this, just for a damned box!

Miles away from the Valkyrie and it’s plight, an enormous lander ship set itself down upon a hive city’s landing pads ungracefully. Grotesque servitors and tech priests scurried around the huge, boxy ship like ants as steam hissed from the unfurling ramps, allowing daylight to flood into the ship. The massive object within stood patiently like a coiled spring, waiting for clearance to move out even as a welcoming party assembled to watch the spectacle.

For the stricken Valkyrie, there was no welcoming committee. There was only industrial waste leaning up from the radioactive fog, cranes and beams reaching up toward the craft as it’s altitude got lower and lower. With.the wastes eager to claim their prize, the co pilot began frantically lobbing things out of the side doors. Food, ammunition, even seat cushions crossed the short distance to the toxic, fog shrouded sands below . For a brief moment, he considered throwing the box out too, before he remembered who had given them their mission. It was imperative that the cargo stayed. Not like a box that small would affect the weight.

The hive’s pads and strurs trembled as shockwaves rolled through them,, heralding the arrival of the lander’s occupant: the Phoenix Imperator. The collosal, twelve metre tall Imperial Knight stepped out onto the pads, pistons and servos powering huge feet that crashed onto the worn metal of the pad. It was hard to believe that all the power the war machine held was controlled by a single man, encased in Adamantium and Ion shields, with a Thunderstrike Gauntlet and heavy stubber to protect it. The true power of the Imperial Knight however was in it’s Thermal Cannon, capable of reducing tanks to a pool of molten metal in an instant, or vaporising bunkers in the blink of an eye.

Out amongst the Ash Wastes, no amount of adamantium could protect the pilots of the Valkyrie from it’s fate. Leering up from the toxic smog, the Valkyrie’s pilots didn’t spot a piece of rubble until it was far, far too late. The Valkyrie blundered into it’s doom as steel ripped apart the remaining engine. An explosion bloomed like a flower, beautiful and deadly before shrapnel eagerly tore through the pilot’s helmet. The aircraft span out of control wildly, ploughing into the radioactive soil and scraping out a long trench before it came to a rest on it’s side, it’s cargo strung out all over the terrain.

The crash meant nothing to most of the figures circling the Phoenix Imperator as it strode across the pad, almost shrouded in incense. As the vibrations from the Knight’s footsteps passed through the teeming mass of spectators, it unknowingly entered a second battlefield, far more destructive than the teeming hordes of Orks beyond the hive’s walls. A battlefield where it was prey.
Even as the knight's scion moved his war machine past her podium, the governess of the world remained scowling. Not only had her court techpriest ordered one her own Valkyries on an unsanctioned mission, she'd chosen to do so using two of her best pilots. Privately, she hoped it crashed. That way, it'd sabotage the Techpriest's schemes and allow her to send out a search party to steal whatever it was she wanted, right from under her nose. She already had the party lined up, including a promising girl from her own retinue of bodyguards. Besides, she could lure the Knight scion in with promises of power and wealth. If only that damned inquisitor would keep her nose out...
Arethia Jyre. That, as far as the governess was concerned, was the name of the inquisitor. An alter ego, but she didn't care what some bratty little governess thought. The inquisitor was here on the business of her ordo, especially where the Adeptus Mechanicus was concerned. She knew one of them had sent out a Valkyrie- even put a tracker on it. What she didn't know was what the cargo was. Still, she could always send out a party of inquisitorial agents to seize it, or recover the cargo should it crash. It would be a good test for a particularly enterprising young woman in her retinue. She'd be able to report back on this knight as well. If he was any good, he'd be a valuable addition to an inquisitorial retinue...
Of course, the governess and the inquisitor would want the Valkyrie and it's cargo. But, as far as the Adepta Sororitas Abbess was concerned, the relic contained within should be hers. After all, the ecclesiarchy dealt with faith and relics. Her sisters in the Orders Famulous knew what roughly the cargo would be, after all. Still, a rapid response unit of Sisters was prepared for anything, especially if the Valkyrie should fail to arrive. She'd ensured one of her own protégés was amongst the force. It would be a good test, if nothing else. Perhaps she'd even convince the Knight scion to save his soul and align with her convent...
The techpriest had given the now-wrecked Valkyrie it’s mission, after all. She'd damned the pilots of the gunship to slow deaths, be it through the blood that left the pilot’s body or the onslaught of radiation that now ensnared his partner. She had plans and grand designs for the cargo they had been ordered to carry at any cost, and would stop at nothing to see those plans come to fruition...
Hey there! Here I go again, posting a 40k prompt for the upteenth time! You'd have thought I'd learn my lesson by now but no, here my persistent ass is!
You may have also guessed by now that I’m a huge 40k fan! Also a fan of big stompy robots and forbidden romances, so it’s fairly natural that I’d make a knight focused plot. To set things in stone:

We’re on a hive world being visited by the local Ork Waaaagh! and you know what that means.
Meanwhile, there’s a 4 way political cold war between the governess of this planet, the sisters of battle, the admech and the Inquisition. To help turn the tide against the greenskins, I’ve just arrived in my Imperial Knight, completely unaware of the mess I’ve wandered into! Of course, this being the Imperium, everyone wants an Imperial Knight for an ally. Depending on how the dice rolls, we could be fighting orks, tyrannids, the Imperium or chaos.
AS FOR YOUR CHARACTER You’ll notice I’ve left your character pretty much open ended. That’s intentional! Ideally, you'll play a character within the retinue of either the Inquisitor, governess, techpriestess and the abbess, where you'll be sent with me on a mission that then kicks off the plot and its many consequences.

Obviously, there's a lot to read here, and a lot of lore backing it up. With that being said, Don't be too concerned or intimidated if you don't know too much about 40k. I don't bite much and the great part about being a 40k nerd is sharing the knowledge, so I'm happy to help out! I mainly RP on discord, but I’m happy to do PMs!

It was her Malibu moment: this scene and the locker scene preceding it finally sold me on their relationship
Jaren Lewison's brilliant performance as Ben had completely convinced me that Ben was completely in love (instead, of, you know, a high school crush) by the end of season 2. So all this time, I had been waiting for a gesture of unconditional love for Ben from Devi, the same way we saw Ben drove her to Malibu at the end of season 1. Something a character did not have to do, but they still dropped everything else they were doing anyway to care for their loved one.
To me, the bathroom scene was very much Devi's very own Malibu moment. She was dealing with her own problems and worries with Princeton at the time, but still she dropped everything else she was and could be doing in order to help Ben when she noticed that he was in a panic. She did not argue with him like she normally would and would certainly have done when she was younger. She understood him so well and she finally demonstrated that this season.
I also noticed the fact that she had such a calming influence on him, as noticeable in the difference between Ben's body language and tone of voice in the bathroom scene and the locker scene immediate preceding it. So many of the things that made them work so well were thanks to the execution by Jaren and Maitreyi. And these two scenes were very well-written for sure, but they were even better-executed. The chemistry and connection between the two of them were off the charts.

2023.06.10 12:20 EaglesFanGirl Regarding a Recent User Ban Calling a Post Click Bait

Good Morning (at least my time),
I wanted to let all users know that I had to ban someone this AM for some extremely insensitive and frankly demeaning comments that were directed against me due to a recent post. If there's concern that I acted rudely, please let me know.
I have NO tolerance for claims that a post was "click bait" and that my problems are "personal" esp given that I genuinely had a serious concern regarding my job yesterday. Of course, my headaches are personal! It impacts my everyday. There was no additional guidance or help with the post, it was a purely malicious post stating i have "problems" and need "to get mental help." Also, discussing in the ADA laws in regards to work, HM and such are important topics for our least in my opinion.
This is not the purpose of this group and the group kindly gave me the reassurance that I needed and some facts. Unfortunately, as many of know, this is what comes with the territory. If anyone has questions or have similar posts that they'd like me remove or consider banning a user, please let me know.

2023.06.10 12:20 Ridog101 /r/ChairsUnderwater will be going dark on June 12th

Dear underwater chair enthusiasts,
/chairsunderwater will be joining in protesting the recently announced API terms changes by going private on June 12.
I think we'll plan to come back online after 48 hours max and re-evaluate the situation as a community.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the desktop interface .
For us moderators, it's even more critical. We rely on external tools not available in the official app to keep our communities, like /chairsunderwater, on-topic, spam-free, and generally afloat.
To voice our discontent and to demand a reconsideration of this decision, we, along with thousands of other subreddits, will be going dark on June 12th. We will return after 48 hours unless the issue is adequately addressed. This is not a decision we make lightly, but it is one we believe necessary to protect the Reddit experience that we cherish.
You can read more on Save3rdPartyApps and on Techcrunch. Apollo developer Christian Selig fills in some details here.
We love Reddit. We love /chairsunderwater. We are taking this action because we believe it is necessary to preserve the community we've built together. We sincerely hope that Reddit will listen to its user base and reconsider its decision.

What can you do?

  1. Complain. Message the mods of /, who are the admins of the site: message reddit: submit a support request: comment in relevant threads on /reddit, such as this one, leave a negative review on their official iOS or Android app- and sign your username in support to this post.
  2. Spread the word. Rabble-rouse on related subreddits. Meme it up, make it spicy. Bitch about it to your cat. Suggest anyone you know who moderates a subreddit join us at our sister sub at /ModCoord - but please don't pester mods you don't know by simply spamming their modmail.
  3. Boycott and spread the Reddit's competition! Stay off Reddit entirely on June 12th through the 13th- instead, take to your favorite non-Reddit platform of choice and make some noise in support!
  4. Don't be a jerk. As upsetting this may be, threats, profanity and vandalism will be worse than useless in getting people on our side. Please make every effort to be as restrained, polite, reasonable and law-abiding as possible. This includes not harassing moderators of subreddits who have chosen not to take part: no one likes a missionary, a used-car salesman, or a flame warrior.
Best, Your /chairsunderwater Moderation Team

2023.06.10 12:19 KomaliFeathers A Poem I wrote about my decision to join the Police force.

Justice Alone A Poem about Law Enforcement and the Military by Jason Appling
Man was created to be as pure as a crystal. But instead of purifying and growing like a mineral, we become brittle and break.
We become an abomination of what was meant to be true beauty and perfection by turning against each other and ourselves.
Who is supposed to pick up the pieces? It certainly isn’t the Lord. If the Lord allows and even authors such evil to transpire, what reason would there be for him to intervene?
All of creation belongs to God alone and it is his to rule over. His true touch of perfection was Man. Man was sent to protect his beautiful creation, but perfection is meaningless without evil.
What is perfection if there is no counterpart? What is perfection if everything is perfect? Why must Man protect creation if there is no evil to protect it from. Maybe this is why evil comes about.
In this day, evil flourishes throughout God’s creation. All around, Man worships false gods, makes priorities of the material and temporary, tarnishes the name of the Lord, makes no spare time to worship, disrespects our fathers and mothers, murders the innocent, commits adultery, steals from one another, makes lies against our fellow neighbors, and disregards all God-given emotion against these acts of sin.
God commands us to follow his Justice and Justice alone. What is God’s Law without God’s Justice? And what is God’s Justice without the enforcement of God’s Law?
Man’s authority that creates peace and maintains order is none other than an authority that has been put in place by God himself. And those who are irresponsible are held accountable by Man’s God given and just authority.
In such an evil world, executing God’s will to create peace, maintain order, and serve Justice is a calling that comes with an ultimate demand for sacrifice.
What is peace without authority? What is authority without Man? What is Man without evil? What is evil without purity to corrupt? Above all, what is purity to corrupt without an ultimate sacrifice?
Those who defend the ill and fatherless, uphold the cause of the poor and the oppressed, rescue the weak and the needy, and deliver them from the hand of the wicked and the father of lies are truly those who are Godly.
One true conclusion that can be drawn from such a vast frontier of knowledge is that nothing can be perfect except for the Lord, himself and his presence.
But the closest hope we have for such perfection is God’s ultimate sacrifice; the spilled blood of Jesus Christ. The single most disgusting acts of sin committed by humans, yet the promise of grace, forgiveness, and eternal life.
As humans, we truly are the flock of sheep who need a shepherd to tend to us. And may Man’s authority be the sheepdog whose purpose is to deliver the livestock to the light.
My existence shall be dedicated to living a Godly life by humbling myself and becoming a Knight whose purpose is to serve his King and defend the King’s people from evil. And if that requires me to follow in the footsteps of Christ and make the ultimate sacrifice in the name of God, so be it.

2023.06.10 12:19 will_arctic Trying to reduce my phone screen time has reaped havoc on trying to maintain a somewhat minimalist lifestyle

Side note: I'm a long time lurker, and am only minimalist when it comes to my hobbies and technology. As much as I would love to simply live out of one suitcase, I can't see that day coming around soon — baby steps.
I thought this might be relevant to this subreddit, because my dilemma ultimately boils down to owning less technology and still being able to do the same amount of stuff when I need to.
In the past five years, I've gone from owning a phone; laptop; desktop computer; games console; TV streaming box; tablet; smartwatch — and today I own just the first two. Great, right?
Well, what this has done has made my bad screen habits more prominent, because my phone and laptop talk to each other and calculate my daily screen time. 5 hours per day. This is 80 days over the course of a year... so I need to sort this.
I'm not even on social media accounts — I just get sucked into information rabbit holes on random thoughts and practically read all the time. I suppose it's better than TikTok, but it can't be good for my eyes, can it?
Last year, when it was time to replace my phone, I simply popped the SIM into a dumbphone and wanted to see if that had an effect.
This was great, but I quickly realised that I really needed WhatsApp. Yes, the dumbphone got me away from Reddit and YouTube — but it made arrangements more cumbersome as a result.
My next approach was to upgrade to a really cheap Android phone. I had been using Apple iOS for around 12 years at this point, so my logic was that an unfamiliar OS with cheap components might make using the phone for entertainment a little more off-putting.
This kind of worked for video content, but it only got my screen time to around 2-3 hours per day. A lot better than before, but that's still around 5 weeks per year of my life mindlessly scrolling. I eventually ended up going back to my iPhone, regardless.
Feeling the need for an intervention, YouTube then recommends this video where the vlogger treats his mobile phone as a landline, and uses an Apple Watch has his sole means of communication when out and about. This 30 day experiment proved to be so beneficial, that the guy suggests that he's continuing to do this beyond the time of the video recording.
This really spoke to me.
I have owned an Apple Watch before, but it was not cellular, so I still didn't feel 100% confident in being cut off while out and about. It was also a piece of technology I stopped using, because I just didn't want to own a lot of stuff to have to constantly charge and whatnot. But the cumbersome screen size did mean that scrolling social media for hours was a no-go — this has to be the solution, hasn't it? A cellular capable wristwatch.
So with an Apple Watch on its way to me today, why do I feel so meh about this. I got caught up in this idea so quickly and placed an order, yet it's just more technology to own, charge, and look after. The battery will probably flatline in two years time too.
I also already own a cheap running watch, so it feels like I'm needlessly replacing an item that doesn't need replacing — even if the running watch is a lot less capable than an Apple Watch.
Has anybody had a similar issue with screentime, and taken steps towards sorting it?

2023.06.10 12:19 Commercial-Ad58 JerseyBaron Order Delays

Hey guys, I was hoping some folks in the community could offer an insight on Jersey Baron, and as to how long it takes them to send their “customised” jerseys. I paid over $300 for a jersey from them on the 17th of May and it hasn’t been dispatched yet. They got back in touch after the first week or so explaining that there would be a bit of time for the jersey to be customised; but this to me is just crossing the line into silliness.
I paid for it with paypal pay in 3, a service which lets you break payments down to one every month, a third up front and then you pay it off the next two months. I’m already getting close to my second payment, and it hasn’t even been bloody well dispatched yet. It’s also not like it will suddenly arrive when it’s sent, as I live in Ireland. Realistically the jersey will be entirely paid off before it even gets here, and to me that just crosses the line into absurdity.
I’ve messaged them multiple times since that first week, and have gotten no response. I understand they may be busy, but as a fellow business owner that kind of turnaround for customer queries is unacceptable, regardless of the comparatively slow order turnaround.
So my question here is this, has anyone else has these kinds of experiences with Jersey Baron? They came highly recommended, hence my ordering from them, but I can’t understand how such delays would warrant such high praise.. am i just crazy here, or is there a precedent to be waiting this long to get a jersey crested and sent off?

2023.06.10 12:19 Content-Pin7204 School Compliance

So, here is the situation. I registered for Summer School. AT is 1-15th. School started on the 5th. I have like 9 Assignments due by the 16th. I emailed my professor my drill schedule with the date for AT and told them that I would be at AT doing military stuff in the field and unable to do the assignments in time, I asked them to please work with me. I told them I can send my Orders once I receive them. I was met with “Make sure you are up-to-date on your coursework.” and emails stating to all students that there will be no extension. Once especially saying “there is no exemption to the “no extension” policy”.
Isn’t there a law or something that states soldiers or military must be allowed to make up or complete school work when interrupted by military orders?? I’m in Louisiana.
‼️TLDR: Told my professor I’m on AT orders, professor basically said no extensions and to go f yourself. Need help.‼️

2023.06.10 12:18 sknowpedia01 [email protected] By Atul Pal

ATUL PAL Lawyer, LLM Candidate from London School of Economics and Political Science (2023-2024), LLB (Delhi University), BA History (Hindu College), MA History (IGNOU)
Its May 27th, 1923 and the location is the city of Furth in Northern Bavaria of Germany. Let us examine the backdrop of this important date in retrospect. The world fresh from the first great war mostly oblivious to the impending cataclysm was a hotbed of ideas and individuals. To put things into perspective, Mussolini and Stalin weren’t a year old as the premiers of Italy and USSR, respectively. Adolf Hitler was half a year away from the famous Beer Hall Putsch which would fame him as the worldwide usurper. The Lausanne treaty which disintegrated the 600 years old Ottoman Empire was awaiting its implementation. Technically, Ottoman Empire was alive. Sun Yat-Sen’s Kuomintang forged an alliance with Chinese Communist Party only to fight one of the bloodiest civil wars of all times, couple of decades later. What makes this date special?? It was on this day the former American Secretary of State, National Security Advisor, political theorist and unarguably one of the most prominent diplomats of the 20th century who completes 100 years of his life – Henry Alfred Kissinger was born.
Kissinger, a Jew fled the onslaught of Nazi Germany alongside his family in 1938 to the United States. An academic excellence, he received his education from Harvard University. Kissinger worked closely with Hans Morgenthau – who is considered to be the father of international relations. He had already started writing on the ideas of realpolitik, and even published a book named “A world restored” which studied balance of power politics in post-Napoleonic Europe alongside excelling in study of world order post the Treaty of Westphalia, 1648 which promulgated the modern nation-state system. Kissinger was the first man to use the word “legitimacy” in terms of acceptance and not justice as it is commonly confused by mentioning European politics and the five great powers post the Concert of Europe 1815. By the time, Kissinger was already becoming popular due to his proximity to the Presidential candidate Nelson Rockefeller. It was around this time he met Richard Nixon. Nixon became the President of United States in 1969. Kissinger was appointed as the National Security Advisor.
It was his stint as the Secretary of State and National Security Advisor under Nixon that made him an international figure. With the Vietnam war raging, Kissinger favoured a negotiating strategy to sign an armistice between the Communist North Vietnam and US backed South Vietnam. Talks materialised and culminated in the Paris Peace Accords. Kissinger and Le Duc Tho won the Nobel peace prize making it the most polemical as the committee members felt that peace was still not restored in Vietnam. The prize was later returned back by Tho as the peace accords had visibly failed after the fall of Saigon in 1975. Kissinger also openly supported Pakistan in the Bangladeshi war of liberation in 1971 often running contrary with India and Indira Gandhi. America withdrew on the accounts of strong Soviet backing to India. He pioneered the policy of ‘détente’ relaxing tensions with the Soviet Union and negotiating the Strategic Arms Limitations Talks (SALT 1 Treaty) and Anti-Ballistic Missile Treaty with General Secretary of the Soviet Union, Leonid Brezhnev alongside fostering close relations with other European allies. Kissinger’s highest point came during his 1972 visit to china. This was the start of the famous “ping-pong” diplomacy. On the backdrop of the Sino-Soviet rift of the late 60s, Kissinger was received by Mao where he later laid the grounds for Richard Nixon’s visit to China, apparently the first by a US president.
The term “shuttle diplomacy” which means negotiating by a third party to solve disputes between two countries was also given fillip during Kissinger’s time. It was on display in the middle-east especially during the Yom Kippur War between Arabs and Israel of 1973 and the arrangement of Camp David Accords of 1979 which established peace between Israel and Egypt regarding the dispute of the Sinai Peninsula. Kissinger worked closely with Shah of Iran before the Islamic Revolution threw the Persian monarchy in 1979. In Latin America, Operation Condor – series of CIA backed coups and assassinations of left-wing socialist leaders between 1975-1989 was launched. The most barbaric ones being the Chilean and Argentinian military coup under General Augusto Pinochet and General Jorge Videla, respectively. This step was seen more of an extension of the Truman doctrine which stated containing the communist take-overs in the Cold War era. After the Watergate scandal which was a major humiliation and brought the downfall of Richard Nixon, Kissinger’s influence also diminished but he continued to play a major part in US foreign relations.
Kissinger has remained politically active throughout and is regarded having the potent-most diplomatic opinions in geopolitical issues that has grappled the world since. From the 1989 Tiananmen massacre, Yugoslav wars, US-Iran relations to the ongoing Russo-Ukraine crisis; his views are taken very seriously across the globe. Kissinger caused a stir in 2022 when he remarked that Ukrainians should prepare to cede some territories in order to reach a peace deal with Moscow invoked global criticism. He is one of the major propagators of the idea of “Finlandization” referring to policy of strict neutrality of the smaller country vis-à-vis its powerful neighbour as seen in Finland’s relation with Soviet Union post World War second. He rendered the same advice to NATO and Ukraine back in 2014. The delicate balance of operation of policies was tested by the Ukrainian President in his series of “NATO-romance”, which as predicted by Kissinger infuriated Russians resulting in a full-scale mobilisation of troops from her side. Considering his acumen in Chinese affairs, he has remained relevant and keeps giving insights on how to evade the conflict and approach the supercharged contemporary state of affairs between USA and China.
A realist with a dash of Machiavelli, Kissinger has never been new to controversies. Being a Jew, in a conversation with President Nixon he remarked – “the emigration of Jews from the Soviet Union is not an objective of American foreign policy, and if they put Jews into gas chambers in Soviet Union, it is not an American concern. Maybe a humanitarian concern”. Kissinger is often criticised on his role in curbing democratic institutions for diplomatic gains. Scholars for his actions in Turkish invasion of Cyprus in 1974 and Indonesian invasion of East Timor in 1975 term him as a “war criminal”. He is also accused of turning a blind eye to the rise of Pol Pot and the Khmer Rouge in Cambodia; an estimated 2 million people died in the pogrom. With his own flaws and faults, Kissinger has remained one of the tallest figures in the 20th century especially during the Cold War era. His books “Diplomacy”, “World Order”, “On China” are no less than bibles of international relations and shows glaring glimpses of the astute and intellectual head that Kissinger carries. In-fact, one his books “Leadership” was released last year (Kissinger was 99!!). Kissinger’s list of most influential statesmen would fondly mention France’s Richelieu, Austria’s Metternich, British’s Castlereagh and Prussia’s Bismarck. After a full century of existence the world can safely conclude – “America’s Kissinger”!!!!

The game takes place in a desserted place(?) Its on 3rd person, The games's artsyle was very decent just like any action games, You can drive in cars, you have to do tasks like fight the bad guys(the bad guys are real people btw) go to certain places and do certain things in order to move forward. You can refill your lil drinking pouch i think its waterskin(search it in google) with water because the character will be dehydrated. Afterwards, you meet an old(?) Man or a very weird man idk what he does cause its a very long time ago i think he is part of a task. Thats all I remember 😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭😭please help I tried searching it but nothing appeared

2023.06.10 12:15 Then-Big6011 STRESSED FIRST YEAR PLS HELP <3

hi guys...
i have chem110 exam coming up and in order to actually pass the course i need 27/100. it may seem doable but due to mental health reasons i honestly dont know. in my mind i feel like i should just skip the exam and start studying for my upcoming poplhlth 111 exam which i could actually get a decent grade in.
essentially my question here what option is wiser.
  1. study for chem and do the exam and therefore possibly getting a c- and like a c+ grade in poplhlth
  2. study for poplhlth and therefore get 0 for chem (contributing to my gpa), but then also get like possibly an a- in poplhlth.
I am so stressed on the verge of a breakdown please can someone tell me what i should do.
also on a side note, if i change my degree next semester, does my current gpa contribute to my next degree? like if i got a 0 on a paper in this degree, but i switched to another degree, would the 0 paper still count towards the gpa even though its an entirely different degree?
i hate it here

2023.06.10 12:15 Away_East2703 Was I graped by my tinder date?

Hi guys,
I(26M) had been seeing this girl I met on tinder for the last 6 months. On tinder, her pictures were really beautiful, slim and cute. Her profile said she's a 25 year old nurse. When I met her in real life for a drink, I found that her face was not as cute as it was on her tinder profile and she was a little chubby. I figured, why care about the details and we hooked up anyways. I continued seeing her for the next 5 months where in we hooked up 6 more times. A month back after we became really close, she confessed to me that she's a law graduate and unemployed. Also she's 27 years old. And her name was also an alias. She told me her real name and informed me that she kept me in the dark for her safety because men in her life previously have stalked her on social media and followed her to her work place after she refused to talk to them. She said now that she trusts me, she doesn't mind sharing her real information with me.
Definitely after hearing all of this, I felt betrayed and stopped seeing her. Keep in mind, I don't date older women and I have never hooked up with a girl older than me previously. Now looking back at it, my consent to hook up with her several times was under the assumption of her tinder profile data. Now knowing that it was all fake, I realize that my consent wasn't informed consent.
So it got me thinking, was I graped by her all those times since my consent was for the version of her on her tinder profile.
Please, serious answers only.

2023.06.10 12:15 T4V0_4LLmeida "TypeError: must be a real number, not NoneType" when trying to use "write_videofile" on any platform other than Google Colab or my computer

Due to limitations of Google Colab resources, I am trying to use MoviePy on other platforms. The latest platform I tried was a free account on DeepNote. However, when executing the code:
from moviepy.editor import * text_clip = TextClip("Hello world!", fontsize=70, color='white') bg_clip = ColorClip(size=(720, 480), color='black') final_clip = CompositeVideoClip([bg_clip, text_clip]).set_duration(10) final_clip.write_videofile("texto.mp4", fps=30) 
The following errors happen:
Moviepy - Building video texto.mp4. Moviepy - Writing video texto.mp4 TypeError: must be real number, not NoneType --------------------------------------------------------------------------- TypeError Traceback (most recent call last) Cell In [1], line 13 10 final_clip = CompositeVideoClip([bg_clip, text_clip]).set_duration(10) 12 # Salvando o resultado - 13 final_clip.write_videofile("texto.mp4", fps=30) File /shared-libs/python3.10/py-core/lib/python3.10/site-packages/, in*args, **kw) 230 if not kwsyntax: 231 args, kw = fix(args, kw, sig) 232 return caller(func, *(extras + args), **kw) File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/, in requires_duration(f, clip, *a, **k) 52 raise ValueError("Attribute 'duration' not set") 53 else: - 54 return f(clip, *a, **k) File /shared-libs/python3.10/py-core/lib/python3.10/site-packages/, in*args, **kw) 230 if not kwsyntax: 231 args, kw = fix(args, kw, sig) 232 return caller(func, *(extras + args), **kw) File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/, in use_clip_fps_by_default(f, clip, *a, **k) 130 new_a = [fun(arg) if (name=='fps') else arg 131 for (arg, name) in zip(a, names)] 132 new_kw = {k: fun(v) if k=='fps' else v 133 for (k,v) in k.items()} 135 return f(clip, *new_a, **new_kw) File /shared-libs/python3.10/py-core/lib/python3.10/site-packages/, in*args, **kw) 230 if not kwsyntax: 231 args, kw = fix(args, kw, sig) 232 return caller(func, *(extras + args), **kw) File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/, in convert_masks_to_RGB(f, clip, *a, **k) 20 if clip.ismask: 21 clip = clip.to_RGB() - 22 return f(clip, *a, **k) File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/video/, in VideoClip.write_videofile(self, filename, fps, codec, bitrate, audio, audio_fps, preset, audio_nbytes, audio_codec, audio_bitrate, audio_bufsize, temp_audiofile, rewrite_audio, remove_temp, write_logfile, verbose, threads, ffmpeg_params, logger) 292 if make_audio: 293, audio_fps, 294 audio_nbytes, audio_bufsize, 295 audio_codec, bitrate=audio_bitrate, 296 write_logfile=write_logfile, 297 verbose=verbose, 298 logger=logger) 300 ffmpeg_write_video(self, filename, fps, codec, 301 bitrate=bitrate, 302 preset=preset, 303 write_logfile=write_logfile, 304 audiofile=audiofile, 305 verbose=verbose, threads=threads, 306 ffmpeg_params=ffmpeg_params, 307 logger=logger) 309 if remove_temp and make_audio: 310 if os.path.exists(audiofile): File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/video/io/, in ffmpeg_write_video(clip, filename, fps, codec, bitrate, preset, withmask, write_logfile, audiofile, verbose, threads, ffmpeg_params, logger) 211 logfile = None 212 logger(message='Moviepy - Writing video %s\n' % filename) 213 with FFMPEG_VideoWriter(filename, clip.size, fps, codec = codec, 214 preset=preset, bitrate=bitrate, logfile=logfile, 215 audiofile=audiofile, threads=threads, 216 ffmpeg_params=ffmpeg_params) as writer: 218 nframes = int(clip.duration*fps) 220 for t,frame in clip.iter_frames(logger=logger, with_times=True, 221 fps=fps, dtype="uint8"): File ~/venv/lib/python3.10/site-packages/moviepy/video/io/, in FFMPEG_VideoWriter.__init__(self, filename, size, fps, codec, audiofile, preset, bitrate, withmask, logfile, threads, ffmpeg_params) 77 self.ext = self.filename.split(".")[-1] 79 # order is important 80 cmd = [ 81 get_setting("FFMPEG_BINARY"), 82 '-y', 83 '-loglevel', 'error' if logfile == sp.PIPE else 'info', 84 '-f', 'rawvideo', 85 '-vcodec', 'rawvideo', 86 '-s', '%dx%d' % (size[0], size[1]), 87 '-pix_fmt', 'rgba' if withmask else 'rgb24', - 88 '-r', '%.02f' % fps, 89 '-an', '-i', '-' 90 ] 91 if audiofile is not None: 92 cmd.extend([ 93 '-i', audiofile, 94 '-acodec', 'copy' 95 ]) TypeError: must be real number, not NoneType 
To avoid other errors that I discovered earlier I do:
!sudo apt-get update !sudo apt install -y imagemagick !sudo sed -i 's/none/read,write/g'> /etc/ImageMagick-6/policy.xml !export 'IMAGEMAGICK_BINARY'='/usbin/convert' !pip install moviepy 
I just want to use MoviePy to generate a video with text appearing on the screen using Deepnote, but at some point in the code, the variable fps becomes None, resulting in an error in the operation ‘%.02f’ % fps.
