Quick questions regarding the orlando API blackout

2023.06.09 22:52 Orlando_Circlejerk Quick questions regarding the orlando API blackout

I would like to apologize in advance, I’m a newer redditor and brand new to this incoming blackout and super anxious about it.
Many subreddits will be going dark in petition of the API pricing policy changes, and some apps have stated they will shut down altogether on June 30th. While I am in agreement with this protest since our voices need to be heard amongst this world of greedy corporations, I do have my concerns. This is my first time doing anything like this. What is the general protocol when something like this happens? Is there anyone who is more experienced with these blackouts able to reach out and guide me on what to prepare when these subreddits that I frequent go down? I am extremely worried and can hardly sleep at night. I’m only getting one, maybe two hours of sleep if I’m lucky. My performance at work is taking a drastic hit and because of the deficiency of sleep, I have constant mood swings. I don’t qualify for insurance for healthcare so I can’t exactly visit my local primary physician for help. All of my income goes to my increased rent and inflated food prices. The start of this month has already been rough for me. I’ve lost my hat, had to replace my worn-down shoes and my apple smart watch broke. This API blackout is just another issue added to my stress. Can any locals show me the ropes and help calm my nerves? Everywhere I go, I use reddit. My livelihood depends on it. I am shaking, getting light headed, and sweating myself as I’m typing this.
I’ve been hearing more and more reports of people leaving reddit altogether. They will be deleting all of their comments and posts before closing their accounts. Should I screenshot my favorite posts and put together a printed photo album when I want to go back to revisit some things?
I am mainly looking for information if anyone has advice on what to prep ahead of this blackout. We will not have any access to news, issues and events happening in our city when reddit goes dark. I imagine that traffic will be even worse than it already is because people will no longer be at home, on reddit. Combining that with speeders, slow people on the left lane, vehicles without their lights on in the rain and tailgaters.
Before you all brigade me for being a moron by asking what to prep and to “google it”, it was the first thing I did and I have some notes on hand. Just looking for the veterans to provide their wisdom and insight. Please stop the hate and be respectful. Reddit IS the front page of the internet.
I already have a few essentials such as a yearlong subscription to my local newspaper, bottled water that is not Zephyrhills or nestle, toilet paper, canned goods, portable AM/FM radio, an OLED Nintendo Switch™ with BOTW/TOTK including a battery recharge pack, candles, lenovo legion gaming pc for Diablo IV, lighters, tarp, sandbags, generator and most importantly, some pubsubs but there is no telling what will really happen until you actually experience it. Should I withdraw some cash on hand? How much? What will my reddit coins be worth? I made a regretful mistake recently of purchasing a very expensive reddit avatar nft as well and can’t refund it. I have some memes already printed out (majesty building mostly) and some printouts to simulate new posts like inadequate driving, traffic, i-4, what internet provider, BEST pizza/burgers/wings, epass or sunpass, hidden gems in Orlando, going to the theme parks will it rain, police/helicopter activity anyone know what is going on?
Discord is not an option for me. I’ve tried using discord and their pro nitro version but it isn’t the same as reddit. There are no orange upvote arrows, or karma and you have to jump through many loopholes to unlock different channels that I don’t have the mental capacity to learn. I joined the local gaming one and some user named rat mother personally banished me afterwards since they had a vendetta against me because I don’t understand reaction face emotes. So now I can’t even find friends to game with and play solo. I have not experienced this much toxicity since the days of ranked league of legends.
This is all just too sudden to go cold turkey from this subreddit with no warning. Will emergency services be open? What are the early signs of withdraw? Will Disney be open? Universal Studios Islands of Adventure? Does anyone realistically know where to specially get discounted tickets?
I do not have reddit gold/platinum at this time but will services restore to those who have those VIP features earlier than those who don’t have it? Or is it amount of reddit karma based? People who want to be ignorant and rude by saying “touch grass” need not comment. I have a medical condition that makes me severely allergic to organic wildlife matter. When you selected your starter Pokémon did you pick Bulbasaur? No, you did not touch grass. You went with Charmander or Squirtle. A lot of you might laugh and not take this seriously but I am a reddit pro power user. 93% of my phone’s battery app usage is for reddit and I upgraded my gaming pc to the 4090 for reddit. We all have our passions and hobbies and there is no need to shame others for theirs.
I’ve survived the hurricanes, the recession, pandemic and inflation. The death of vine, decline of digg, and the change from micro-usb. I don’t think I have the strength, the faith, nor the willpower strong enough to push through this blackout. Orlando is my home, my city. I was born and raised here. Even if we all leave this subreddit Orlando will still be with me, forever and always just like those who moved here from New York. They too, are Local and FLGrown. But it also begs the question on where Orlando Weekly will steal content posts next?
In the aftermath of all of this, will we all be the same person going in to this blackout as we are coming out? I have concerns that I won’t be “me” anymore. Who will take responsibility and be accountable for this emotional yet spiritual awakening traumatic event? The moderators?
[Edit] Thanks for the gold kind stranger! This is the way. The narwhal bacons at midnight (for those of you who are true redditors).

2023.06.09 22:02 Beachbomb08 lots of guilt, Should i quit my job?

employed for 3 years, going on 4 next year. my boss is in his early 90's with no concept of computers or his own cell phone. no heath benefits, no over time ( ie. i asked months in advance when i knew i needed surgery last year, ultimately taking out a loan as there was NO over time) when some work comes in he will accept it and not charge his friends. I do ALL computer paper work, i register deeds for houses, prepare wills, file for probate, prepare annual corporate minutes, accounting, IT (install new computers, repair printers, fix wifi when i can) i also prepare his health insurance forums and his other personal documents whenever they come in. Anything that you think happens at a law firm, i do it. i make 38k USD/52k CAD including my vacation (salary), after taxes its $2,300 USD/ $3100 CAD monthly. my rent is $1300USD/ $1650 CAD and i am behind on this months rent.
i feel bad as when i am not at work, he sleeps, falls out out his chair and hurts himself. after February, it has not been as busy. hes still a cool guy all though very stingy. (he has not adapted to the value of todays money in my opinion, charging someone $250 for a Will that took me 1 week to complete with MULTIPLE revisions) some days no one calls the office and i just deal with his personal matters. But there are peaks when it is still also very, very busy and he just sits, stares and sleeps and accepts more work for me to do, preferably all finished in the same day. holiday season is coming soon and i need to decide if i am leaving or not. I am his only employee, his last employee retired after she met her husband. she worked for him over 10 years, never got a raise. he has previously offered to give me one week advance in the past but it still did not help with the issues i had at hand.
the cost of living has gone up so much, i can only afford to eat once a day now. I have NO savings. my phone has been disconnected because its not my priority right now (rent is, i am panicking because i am late this month and owe $500 from last month and wont have the money to pay it entirely until the 15th this month)
i have 2 customer service jobs that i can start right away Monday morning (online), i would have to work more hours in the day and night but within a month i would 100X be in a better place financially. (at least its working from home...)
should i quit , work part time or stick this job out and work around it, or talk to him AGAIN

2023.06.09 21:38 Dads-girl1234 Cleaning our community

Cleaning up the community is more than just a chore or a duty. It is a way of showing respect and care for the people and the environment around us. It can also improve our health, safety, and quality of life. Cleaning up the community can involve picking up litter, recycling waste, planting trees, painting walls, or organizing events. These activities can make our community more beautiful, vibrant, and welcoming. They can also reduce pollution, conserve resources, and protect wildlife. For example, according to a report by Keep America Beautiful, litter cleanup can save up to $11.5 billion per year in costs related to property value, tourism, crime prevention, and health care. Another example is Dow’s global clean-up program, which collected more than 1.2 million pounds of waste in 2020 and aims to increase its impact through education, collaboration, and recycling. Cleaning up the community can also help us to connect with our neighbors, learn new skills, and have fun. We can meet new friends, share ideas, and work together towards a common goal. Cleaning up the community can also boost our self-esteem, happiness, and sense of belonging. It can make us feel proud of ourselves and our community. Cleaning up the community is a rewarding and meaningful way of making a positive difference in the world.

2023.06.09 20:11 psych_ward_princess Can you work at a facility where you were once a patient?

I’m beginning the process of hunting for jobs after having just gotten my MSW. I’m not interested in doing direct clinical practice (picked a macro specialization to stay away from that), but am interested in administrative work of any kind, whether in a human services organization or corporate. I found an administrative assistant position at a mental health facility that seems like a perfect fit, but I was also a patient there a few years ago, discharged in Jan 2020. Would I be allowed to work there since three and a half years have gone by, or am I barred from ever working there?
(Mods, if I’ve posted this in the wrong place, please redirect me!)

2023.06.09 17:31 zigzagwag Frustrated with myself

Frustrated with myself, this diagnosis, lack of meds, lack of understanding.
Currently unemployed while seeking a job outside of my degree. Backstory: i’m a certified behavior analyst. For the most part, I’ve worked with autistic individuals. early last year I began working for a new program, new students, and got introduced to the world of students with ADHD. So much of what worked for me, worked for them and vice versa. I also got diagnosed early last year, so it was a learning experience for everyone.
Through therapy and conversations with colleagues I’ve had throughout the years, some of us feel we got into this field to understand why people do what they do (fun fact: people do whatever they want for a multitude of reasons you may never know). A combo of ADHD burnout and field burnout had me basically a shell of a human at my last position. A company acquisition happened and after a convo with my highly supportive partner, we decided the best thing to do would be to resign & search for a new position outside of behavior analysis/autism/adhd that’s more sustainable and manageable. I typically put my blood sweat and tears into my clients and students because that is what they deserve, unfortunately, when you know what you were doing and you’re passionate about what you do, you can easily get taken advantage of in this field.
So here I find myself three weeks into unemployment, and all I’ve been able to do to make money is babysit, which I love. But I also need health insurance, to help me get the meds that help me function.
This whole time period has been incredibly difficult as I try to navigate trying to find a job outside my field in a difficult job market while there’s no meds to help. I can’t even organize myself the way I would like to at home. I have a visual schedule, but as soon as something does not go to plan, my ability to organize and shift and make a new plan that I can stick to goes out the window

2023.06.09 13:21 Think_Sample_1389 Is American Circumcision a conspiracy of a few to cut the millions?

Here is the question that has possible answers depending on what you believe. We know the medical industry has backed away from circumcision of infants where ever it has significantly gone away. And in most Western European countries, it was never suggested boys have some body parts that we need to cut off. But, let's think about the history of US circumcision and why and how it became automatic.
The trail is long, but I would agree if it had not been foisted upon the public and made as some kind of unique marking and further gaslighted as healthy by the US medical industry it would today in the US be declining, not funded by tax cash and always volatile to shoot up at the propaganda of certain government agencies and professional trade organizations. We must acknowledge fanatics on the pro side have had deep emotional and religious motives, even if they would not acknowledge the same. Two persons of interest historically are Edgar Schoen and Aaron Fink. Schoen pushed and elbowed his way to turn the AAP policy towards what appeared an endorsement in 1989. The circumcision rates from 1990 through the next decade went up, and no states decided to defund its automatic without-diagnosis payments through public health insurance including Medicaid. It's not broadly known Schoen was a fanatic and wrote letters to European health agencies in the same way another fanatic crank, Brian Morris has, that the medicals in these countries should endorse routine circumcisions. Schoen even wrote a book advocating the universal imperative, circumcision. It's junk and bunker scare junk science, and the rest of the world knows it. We might wonder why the medical industry keeps it support in the US, but nowhere else. You might ask why the fanatics, when they get cash, and a stream of true believers, always gravitate back to cutting routinely into newborn babies, using every excuse imaginable that it's safer, cheaper, and the best way to get consent. Well, some of you may know a special group that does this on the eighth day; that is when he is a baby and will just grow to accept the tribal marks. It's not by coincidence at all. They know very well, no adult man would stand in line for this unless he was forced by cash or some propaganda. But they did succeed in Africa until men became aware it was an American scam and stopped volunteering. And with that, you know what they did? Turned to do them without the consent of school boys and newborns. They then got scared and the VMMC decided it would not fund any cuts to anyone less than fifteen. You have to be very dense not to see their purpose here, and it was never HIV prevention!
Prior to 1989, circumcision rates had been in decline for about two decades and suddenly shot up ten percent after the media announced circumcision did have health advantages. Further, the AAP had gone from not endorsing the practice even listing the advantages to remaining intact. That ended with the cabal's first wave of 1989, but we all know that the cabal had a second thrust coming in 2012! After Schoen's attack, the AAP deleted any functions of the foreskin and even deleted meatal stenosis as a possible complication. This didn't happen by chance, my fellow intactivists. It was active and premeditated and sly designed to deceive and weld power. And a recent study shows parents are not given a balanced pro-con list to secure consent. They are asked several times, which is solicitation, and then just told to sign here.
Now forward this to the fraudulent US and Gates funding in secret to the VMMC. The hope of the zealots was to make Americans and especially government state-by-state public health insurance pay for circumcision on demand and if challenged just cite CDC, AAP ACOG, and others who listed health advantages. This is the way or plan that worked because no state has dropped circumcision from its paid benefits since the fraudulent initiative of the cabal at the AAP headed by a Jewish man who circumcised his own son on his parent's kitchen table, Andrew Friedman. And despite Pediatrics publishing the European rebuttal the US media and the AAP never acknowledged, except to shout back you uncircumcised Europeans have that as your bias, let us have ours.
So no state has dropped circumcision since AAP 2012 and further several have reinstated payments for dubious fraudulent excuses including North Carolina with the special Z classification and more recently South Carolina without any justification except to consolidate as they stated " comprehensive care". We all know these people are after the foreskin cash and they want the billions the tax money gives them every day they can harangue a mother to agree to a circumcision.
That leaves we intactivists wondering who is it that really gaslights and controls what society thinks and guards the lies and protects the cash about circumcision in the United States. I would say be afraid of these people because they will not be stopped. The CDC has not changed its web pages even after 95 percent of public comments denounced they endorse circumcision as a public health intervention and keep it funded.
So in my lifetime, I don't expect a change in the US at all and it will be all we can do to just sandbag the lies they tell and the silence they have when challenged.
And at the end of thirty years, I've learned who gaslights society about this, and we could say, about many other brainwashing areas as well, but not relevant on this forum.

2023.06.09 13:09 Sea-Phase-7999 Best Life Insurance Plan In India 2023

Health Insurance

“Without health, life is not life; it is only a state of languor and suffering; an image of death.” Rising healthcare costs and growing lifestyle diseases have necessitated the need for health insurance as a vital financial tool to address healthcare needs.
Health insurance works as a financial-protection tool against medical expenses. It usually provides either direct payment or reimbursement for expenses associated with illness, injuries and hospitalization, as detailed in the scope of the policy cover. The cost and range of protection provided by a health insurance policy depends on the insurer and the type of policy purchased by you. Some policies also cover pre and post hospitalization expenses.


  1. FAMILY FLOATERl HEALTH INSURANCE : Family Floater Health Insurance provides health cover for entire family members,under a single insurance policy.So,we need not take separate policies for individually.This provides the facilities as like individual insurance policy i.e. in-patient care, pre and post-hospitalisation etc.
  2. SENIOR CITIZEN HEALTH INSURANCE : This plan specifically designed for the individuals over the age of 60 years.From that age medical expenses and health complications are increased.So,it’s good to take comprehensive health insurance plan to bear those medical expense.
  3. CRITICAL ILLNESS HEALTH INSURANCE : Critical illness includes,diseases like heart disease, cancer, organ failure, major organ transplant, kidney disease, coma, etc.Thease diseases effects heavily on their health condition .If the policy holder should have to diagnose ,then receives an lumpsum payout.

2023.06.09 12:05 brown-bear-cuddles Am I doing the right thing rejecting this job?

Am I an idiot for planning to reject this job offer in such a volatile job market? I'm currently doing fine on unemployment as I continue interviewing and applying to different jobs. I recently got a job offer from a PMarketing company that operates mainly in Europe and so in the US I would be a paid as an LLC instead of a corporate employee. My pros and cons are below but I'm really leaning towards not accepting mainly because of the Glassdoor reviews and the cons that come with being my own LLC. I would just love to work for a corporate environment that has benefits. The only benefits with this role is 18 days off paid with a few sick days. The people I interviewed with seemed okay but the Glassdoor reviews (most of which are reviews in my role that I'm applying for) seem to indicate high turnover and a toxic environment and that's not something I'm willing to repeat (I experienced a lot of stress at my last job).
Am I an idiot for planning to reject this job offer in such a volatile job market?
Pros: Remote
Cool to have a company/contractor position under my name for growth/portfolio
Having an income

Contracted position would need to create an LLC for myself
Health insurance, taxes, retirement, everything would be on me
Terrible (I mean insanely terrible) reviews on Glassdoor with the CEO leaving petty replies and the only positive reviews are from the same VP (obviously fake reviews to offset the overall score)
No paid overtime
No benefits at all

Unlock the world, one international trip at a time!

According to human psychology, we often focus on money and go for the cheapest international trip. If you’re from India, you search for the “cheapest international trip from India” and likewise for any other country. Still, none of us focus on the planning and organization element of the trip.
Traveling is one of the most enriching experiences a person can have. Not only does it allow you to explore new cultures, cuisines, and landscapes, but it also helps you grow as an individual.
For starters, traveling expands your horizons and broadens your perspective on life. You get to see how people from different parts of the world live, their beliefs, and their daily routines. This exposure to diversity helps you become more open-minded and accepting of others. Additionally, you learn new things and gain a deeper appreciation for different cultures and their histories.
Another reason why traveling is amazing is that it allows you to disconnect from your daily routine and live in the moment. Whether relaxing on a beach, hiking through a jungle, or exploring a bustling city, traveling forces you to slow down and live in the present. This can be incredibly refreshing, especially for those constantly busy with work or other responsibilities.
Traveling also helps you build confidence and independence. When you’re in a new place, you must navigate unfamiliar terrain, communicate with people who speak different languages, and find your way around without the comfort of the familiar. This can be challenging at first, but with time, you’ll find that you’re able to handle new situations with ease and that your confidence has grown
Since the end of the global pandemic, there has been a surge of Indians who want to travel and explore all the hidden gems spread across the globe.

2023.06.09 09:39 Steve_Fox_2000 ML Ethics and Compliance

ML Ethics and Compliance
Overview of ethical considerations in ML development, best practices for ethical ML development, compliance considerations for ML systems.
Machine learning (ML) has the potential to transform industries, improve processes, and provide solutions to complex problems. However, as with any powerful technology, ethical considerations and compliance requirements must be considered. The ethical implications of machine learning are vast, and the development of ethical machine learning systems is crucial to ensure they are used for good. This article will explore moral considerations in ML development, best practices for ethical ML development, and compliance considerations for ML systems.

Ethical Considerations in ML Development

Developing ethical machine learning systems is essential to ensure they benefit society and do not cause harm. So let's consider some ethical issues that need to be taken into account during the development of ML systems:

Bias:Machine learning algorithms are only as unbiased as the data they are trained on. The resulting algorithm will also be biased if the training data contains preferences. This issue can lead to unfair decisions and perpetuate discrimination. Therefore, it is essential to identify and remove biases from the training data to ensure the fairness of the ML system.
Privacy: Machine learning algorithms often use personal data to make decisions. It is essential to ensure that the data is collected, stored, and used ethically and that the privacy of the individuals is protected.
Transparency: ML algorithms can be complex, and understanding how they arrive at a decision is often difficult. It is essential to make the decision-making process transparent so a user can understand how the system arrived at a particular conclusion.
Accountability and Liability: The deployment of ML systems can significantly impact individuals and society. Determining accountability and liability in cases of errors, biases, or unintended consequences can be challenging. As ML systems become more autonomous, the question of who is responsible for their actions becomes crucial. Developing frameworks that establish clear lines of accountability and liability is essential for addressing ethical concerns and providing recourse for individuals affected by ML system outcomes.

Best Practices for Ethical ML Development

To develop ethical machine learning systems, developers must follow best practices that ensure the system is fair, transparent, and accountable. Here are some best practices for ethical ML development:

Diversity: It is essential to ensure the development team is diverse, representing different backgrounds and perspectives. It allows for the identification and removal of biases from the system.
Data Quality: High-quality data is crucial for ethical machine learning development. The data should be representative, diverse, and unbiased.
Model Interpretability: Unfortunately, the inherent complexity of some ML models can make them challenging to interpret and explain. This lack of interpretability can lead to mistrust and skepticism from users, regulatory bodies, and society as a whole. Understanding the decision-making process of ML systems is crucial for ensuring transparency, accountability, and ethical usage. Developing model interpretability and explainability techniques is an ongoing challenge that requires bridging the gap between accuracy and clarity. In order to make the system transparent, it is crucial to ensure that the model is easily interpretable. It means that the decision-making process should be understandable to non-experts.
Regular Audits: Machine learning algorithms can change over time, and it is essential to regularly audit the system to ensure that it remains fair and unbiased.
Ethical Education and Awareness: Building a culture of ethics and compliance in the ML field requires educating and raising awareness among developers, organizations, and end-users. A lack of understanding of ethical considerations, biases, and compliance requirements can hinder ML systems' responsible development and usage. Encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration, promoting ethical training programs, and fostering open discussions on the societal impacts of ML is essential to overcome this challenge.

Compliance Considerations for ML Systems

Compliance considerations are also crucial when developing machine learning systems. Organizations must ensure their ML systems comply with relevant laws and regulations. Here are some compliance considerations for ML systems:

Data Privacy: Organizations must comply with regulations of data privacy, among them the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It means that before collecting and using individuals' data, one needs to obtain their consent and ensure that it is secure and protected.
Fair Lending: Have you heard aboutthe Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA)? It prohibits lenders from discriminating based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, marital status, age, or national origin. Machine learning systems used in lending must comply with this regulation and ensure that the decision-making process is fair and unbiased.
Health Regulations: Machine learning systems used in healthcare needs to comply with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). So it means they must ensure the privacy and security of patient data and obtain consent before using it.
Balancing Ethical Considerations with Performance: There can be a trade-off between incorporating strict ethical considerations and achieving optimal performance in ML systems. For instance, fine-tuning models to minimize biases may lead to a decrease in accuracy. Striking the right balance between fairness, accuracy, and utility is a complex challenge. It requires continuous research, experimentation, and optimization techniques to ensure that ethical considerations are not compromised while maintaining system performance.


The field of ML ethics and compliance is relatively new, and regulations are continuously evolving. Staying up-to-date with changing legal and regulatory frameworks can be challenging for organizations developing ML systems. In addition, compliance requirements differ across industries and jurisdictions, making it necessary to have dedicated teams and processes to monitor and adapt to new regulations.

So, machine learning systems' ethical considerations and compliance requirements are complex and challenging. However, hiring an AI consulting company can overcome these challenges effectively.

Experts from Zfort Group can provide expertise in ethical frameworks, identify and mitigate biases, ensure compliance with regulations, address privacy and data protection concerns, conduct ethical audits and assessments, offer training and education, and provide continuous monitoring and adaptation. By leveraging Zfort Group's services, you can navigate the complexities of ethical decision-making, comply with regulations, and develop responsible machine learning systems.

2023.06.09 07:52 throwawaysishtwin My mental health team is talking down my life plans.

I'm not totally sure what to make of it, but my team has me constantly doubting myself and feeling pretty bad about myself.
3 months ago, I decided to go back to college. I start my classes this week. I left because of a severe mental health crisis 3 years ago. After almost 3 years of constant work on myself, I felt ready to try it again.
My psychiatrist and therapist said that they were on board. I also have/had to find a new job (the place went broke- I don't recommend trying to work at a startup). My psychiatrist wished me luck, and my therapist wrote a letter of support to my school. My therapist cautioned that I should start slow.
Things got really fucking awful as the situation panned out. I've been having a lot of trouble finding even a minimum-wage job. It's off-season (we're in a tourist destination that's also a desert- so business is only locals until about October), and most retail/etc want you to have 24/7 availability, when they have like 6-10 hours a week available for the position. Most places (about 70%) haven't even opened my resume, regardless of what kind of job it is. I've interviewed about 6 times, and each one said that they would let me know in a month+ (and that they had 20-60 candidates to consider). As far as school goes, I was going to just take math, but the school suggested I take intro to psych as a prerequisite to my plan to do full-time in the fall, so I'm signed up for 2 classes (the only thing I'm happy about in this situation).
When my psych asked about my job search, I said 2-3 sentences pretty similar to what I said above. His attitude did a 180. He said I was an unbearable, difficult, egocentric person, who felt entitled despite having no life skills. I admit that I've been through way, way too many jobs in the last 2 years, but we didn't find a med combo to battle the bipolar and ADHD that entire time. I didn't know what normal felt like until about last October. I was banking on this job lasting, but they went bankrupt. He said that it's my fault I was laid off, that I was unequipped to handle more than 20 hours a week of retail (which I've done before; my most recent job was $7/hour more pay than that, in an office and full-time). He suggested I "learn humility" by "working at Mc.Donald's as a cashier" for a year or more, before he would endorse me trying to better myself. Our appointments are normally 15-20 minutes, but he spent 1 hour 17 talking to me like this. He ended with demanding to speak to my therapist, because, "either you're impossible to work with, or your therapist is terrible at his job."
When I told my therapist about this, his attitude changed, too. He said he had been going too easy on me, and that he agreed with almost everything the doctor said. He started ragging on me for my life not being organized atm (unemployed, few friends, trouble with chores, etc etc). He said that anyone who agrees that I'm ready for school doesn't really support me, because anyone who did would tell me that it was a horrible idea. He said I should leave university and go to community College, taking less than half the credits I want to, and working maybe 10-20 hours a week at most. He said I was disordered, dysfunctional, have a victim complex, and I'm in a "24/7 crisis."
I told him at the next session that I was hugely discouraged and distressed by how they've been talking to me, and he doubled down. He said that he thinks I'm not even ready for a class, that I should take the easiest thing available or get a certificate for 1 class online. He said that I was permanently disabled by my mental health crisis in 2020, and that I needed to lower my expectations to be less than normal functioning/half of what I was doing before. I asked him why I would be unable to do what I did at 18, when I'm 6 years older, more focused, more serious, more thoughtful, calmer, and have been to therapy for years. He said that he didn't ever expect me to function. He said it's not if I fail, it's when I fail. He also asked, "So, will you tell Dr.X that I agree with him, or are you going to hide it from him?" (Then charged my credit card, because he's not on my insurance. LOL.)
Anyone close to me that I've told this stuff has been shocked. I really don't know what to do. Every interview has me depressed, and they seem to be going worse since that 1st appointment last month. It's hard to not seem desperate, and I guess there is something wrong with me if they all ghost me after saying they'll "let [me] know." I'm depressed, I have a hard time being intimate with my partner, I feel discouraged and unconfident, and I feel alone. Mostly, I'm embarrassed. My therapist said that me feeling "betrayed" is a sign of how disordered I am. Idk, though, I wouldn't talk to anyone like that, much less my client. They also told me that they "get it" and "relate to [my] failure." The therapist is a recovered bipolar man with a family and a master's. The psychiatrist gave the example of, "I got rejected from 10 medical schools. Fortunately, I was accepted into Harvard..."
I don't know what to do. I don't think the psychiatrist is a good fit (I met him in February). But my therapist? We've been working together for a year and a half. I thought he saw me making progress. I guess he thinks that I really am difficult and horrible, and said that he didn't work with me with the expectation that I'd ever function the way I want to. That I'm disabled, unstable, fragile, and incapable. A couple of people in my life are doubting me. "But what if they're right?"
The kicker is that my therapist met me at my lowest point. Failed meds (to the point of not recognizing myself and feeling cognitively impaired), failed jobs, no friends, and living with an abusive narcissist who was trying to destroy my relationship. I thought he'd be proud of where I am. I don't know what to do with the fact that he doesn't think I've improved at all, or that I'm likely to ever achieve what I want to. Meanwhile, I was on the honor roll from grade 8 up until my sophomore year of college. He said school and a small amount of work is "grandiose."
I see him tomorrow. I think about these appointments non-stop. I feel like I might not even know myself, or that I might be a delusional or shitty person. I feel sick all the time. I don't want to tell him any of my problems, and why would I? The last appointment, he used all of my struggles as ammo to back up his thoughts on me. And yet, I really struggle with mental health professionals. I don't want to open up my entire life to strangers again. And what if they turn out to be judging me like that, too? I have a lot of relationship trauma and trust issues, so trying to improve my life with my mental health team (which I thought of as my rock) treating me this way is kind of my nightmare. I feel really sick, and it's hard not to fall back on patterns of perfectionism and self-loathing. And I'm beating myself up too much. Oh, and I'm struggling with intimacy, so I feel inadequate for even my best friend/partner, and guilty about that.
Idk what to do. I don't know if I can tolerate this. It gets worse when I try to set boundaries or express my feelings. And I don't want to have to fake or hide things in therapy. I'm also a little terrified of the psychiatrist. He's violated my treatment goals before, and he recently suggested cutting my ADHD meds in half (I know that they don't work at all at that dose), and upping my sedatives, even though I told him that oversleeping is an issue. (he said the reason I slept 12-16 hours a day was just because I was lazy, despite me setting like 7 alarms. I literally can't open my eyes, and I've fallen asleep drinking coffee before). Also, when I was over-sedated, I was having trouble thinking, focusing, driving, staying awake at work, and had partial amnesia. I'm terrified that he'll go through with those ideas and sabotage my functioning when it's most crucial (my schooling is contingent on a good grade in my summer classes). Maybe I'm paranoid.
TL;DR: Psychiatrist and therapist seem to have changed their minds about me being capable of school (basically my dream since I was a kid). They think I'm insufferable, broken, and incapable, despite me feeling like I've improved a lot. I'm feeling doubtful, depressed, and so anxious that I feel sick. I don't feel safe opening up to them. I don't want to keep going to appointments, and I don't trust that doctor with my health and sanity. Idk
Update 1: I brought it up again in therapy. He decided that since I wasn't going to change my plan (ie not try for university again, 1 easy cc class only and working 12-20 hours a week, max), that we shouldn't work together. He gave me a list of referrals, and that was that. He said that my personality/outlook was disordered in such a way that he couldn't work with me. When I asked if he thought I had a personality disorder, he said no. He also confirmed that he thought I was permanently disabled and less capable than when I was a teenager. He confirmed that he thought I didn't do as well in any job that as the 13-hour-a-week retail job I took during working on my health, and that I didn't even do very well at that. (BTW, my last office job is giving good references, and I was laid off, not fired.) Just, ok. I see the psychiatrist in 2 weeks, and I'll make a decision regarding working together then. I'm thinking it's likely for the best.

2023.06.09 07:18 duckowucko [Long-Schall] Browder Administration and "Return" of the Business Plot? (1941)

[Long-Schall] Browder Administration and

35th President of the United States, Earl Russel Long (AFA-Communist)


Vice President: Upton Sinclair
Secretary of State: Theodore Green
Secretary of Treasury: Henry Morgenthau Jr.
Secretary of War: Henry Stimson
Attorney General: Earl Warren
Secretary of the Navy: Frank Knox
Secretary of the Interior: Harold Ickes
Secretary of Agriculture: Henry Wallace
Secretary of Commerce: Norman Thomas
Secretary of Labor: Frances Perkins
President Pro Tempore: Key Pittman (Democrat)
Speaker of the House: Everett Dirksen (Republican)
In a shocking turn of events, Earl Russel Browder became the first non-republican or non-democrat to win the White House since 1856. Despite his unique affiliation, he kept true to his campaign promise and organized a politically diverse Cabinet; though of course, heavily favoring interventionists. Former President Long had made it a point, however, to take as long as possible to move his stuff out as Browder began to move his stuff in.
Browder would get to work in his first few months in office, petitioning Congress and making several notable speeches over the radio, perhaps the most extensive use of which by a President so far. In March of 1941, the Lend-Lease Act would be passed with flying colors, allowing the supply of food, oil, and raw material to the allied nations alongside the Soviet Union. This was quickly followed by the Neutrality Act of 1941, which allowed for a "Cash and Carry" policy, which was disliked by the struggling British. Browder would also enforce official resource embargoes on Japan, Germany, Italy, and Vichy-France; the latter of which had officially joined the Axis during the interim after the election.
Domestically, President Browder would continue much of the existing policies of Huey Long and George Norris. However, Browder was able to push through the Corporate Revenue Act of 1941; raising taxes on all businesses classified as "Large" that did not produce a certain percentage of their profit for the Government, which in a way encouraged companies to pursue military contracts in new ships, planes, trucks, and tanks as Browder and his administration put into effect their military expansion program in July.
In the wake of a call for a "March on Washington" by African-American Leader, Asa Phillip Randolph, Browder would sign an executive order that would prohibit employment discrimination among defense contractors based on race, faith, and sex. Browder would also begin to allow larger amounts of European -namely Jewish- refugees into the nation with some convincing from Treasury Secretary Henry Morgenthau.
With rampant military and industrial expansion followed by sudden openings and closings of trade routes, the American economy took a massive shift, though definitely positive in these short few months, with unemployment dropping by a whole 1 percent, currently standing at around 10% and it appears to be dropping fast.

October Morning

In the early morning of October 2nd, 1941, President Earl Browder was leaving a Virginian hotel with Vice President Upton Sinclair and a few aids and bodyguards when a few youngsters that were recently sighted coming out of the local recruiter's office walked up to the group and opened fire with concealed revolvers.
As it stands, the health of President Browder or Vice President Upton Sinclair is unknown. However the President's bodyguard has confirmed the deaths of 5 of the 6 attackers, and it is suspected the sixth has been arrested. The identities and ages of the young men have not been released, and their motives are under question. However, theories that have previously been debunked have cropped up again in public circles; talking of Japanese or German infiltrators running the Government, or of a "Business Plot" previously revealed by the late U.S. Marine Smedley Butler in 1933 following the election of George Norris. Has the business plot returned after a Communist was elected? Have the Japanese infiltrated our Government? In the meantime, we can only hope the President and Vice President are alright.
Garner Administration (1933-1933)
Norris Administration (1933-1937)
Long Administration (1937-1941)

Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana: A Comprehensive Guide
Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana is a crucial aspect for businesses operating in the state. It provides financial protection and support to employees in case of work-related injuries or illnesses, ensuring that they receive the necessary medical care and wage-loss compensation. This article aims to provide an in-depth look at Workers Comp Louisiana, covering the legal requirements, benefits, and the process of obtaining this insurance.
1. Introduction to Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana
Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana, also known as workers' compensation, is a type of accident insurance paid by employers. It is designed to benefit employees who are injured in the workplace or contract a work-related sickness. In Louisiana, almost all employers need workers' compensation insurance for their business, regardless of the number of employees. This coverage helps pay for medical bills, missed wages, ongoing care, and other expenses related to work-related injuries or illnesses.
Bonano Insurance offers Worker’s Compensation Insurance specifically designed for employees' benefit. With no payroll deduction made from an employee's salary, it covers medical expenses if they are injured in the workplace or contract a work-related sickness. Furthermore, it also covers wage-loss compensation until the employee returns to work.
2. Louisiana Workers' Compensation Requirements
2.1 Mandatory Coverage for Most Employers
Louisiana workers' compensation laws require most employers to have this coverage, even if they have just one employee. This law applies to various types of workers, including:
· Full-time employees
· Part-time employees
· Minors
· Seasonal employees
Sole proprietors without employees and corporate officers owning a certain percentage of a business may not need this coverage. However, if a business has any workers, it will likely require a workers' compensation policy.
2.2 Exemptions from Workers' Compensation Coverage
Certain types of workers and industries are exempt from the requirement to have workers' compensation insurance. These exemptions include:
· Employees of a private residential homeowner
· Musicians and performers providing services outlined in a performance contract
· Real estate brokers or salespersons licensed to do business in Louisiana
· Employees of a private unincorporated farm
· Landmen performing exploration, development, production, or mineral transportation services
· Employees covered by the Federal Employer's Liability Act, Longshoremen's and Harbor Workers' Compensation Act, and Jones Act
· Members of airplane crews involved in dusting or spraying operations
· Uncompensated officers and members of a board of directors for nonprofit organizations
Employers should be aware of these exemptions and ensure they comply with the state's requirements to avoid penalties.
3. Classification of Employees and Avoiding Fraud
When obtaining Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana, it is essential to classify employees based on their type of work to ensure they have the right coverage. Misclassifying employees is often considered fraud and can result in severe consequences for the employer. Businesses should maintain accurate records and consult with an insurance professional to ensure they are in compliance with the state's regulations.
4. Understanding Workers' Comp Benefits in Louisiana
Workers' compensation insurance in Louisiana provides various benefits to employees who suffer from work-related injuries or illnesses. These benefits include:
4.1 Medical Care
Workers' comp insurance covers medical expenses for accidents or injuries that require medical care and happen on the job. This includes doctor visits, hospital stays, medications, and any necessary treatments related to the injury or illness.
4.2 Lost Wages and Indemnity Benefits
When an employee is unable to earn money and needs time off to recover before they can return to work, workers' comp insurance provides lost wages, also known as indemnity benefits.
4.3 Disability Benefits
In situations where an employee has a severe injury and returning to work isn't an option, workers' comp insurance provides disability benefits. This includes temporary total disability, where an employee receives an average weekly wage, and permanent total disability for employees who suffer severe on-the-job injuries.
4.4 Ongoing Care
Workers' comp insurance covers ongoing care when an injury or illness requires additional treatment, such as physical therapy or vocational rehabilitation.
4.5 Funeral Costs and Death Benefits
In the unfortunate event that an employee dies on the job, workers' comp insurance provides coverage for funeral expenses and other costs.
4.6 Illnesses and Repetitive Stress Injuries
Workers' comp insurance covers illnesses resulting from harmful chemicals or other materials and repetitive stress injuries that occur over time.
5. Obtaining Workers' Comp Insurance in Louisiana
There are several ways for a business in Louisiana to obtain workers' compensation insurance, including:
· Being a member of an approved Group Self-Insurance Fund
· Applying to the Assistant Secretary of the Office of Workers' Compensation to become an approved self-insured employer
· Obtaining a policy through a private workers' compensation insurer, such as the Louisiana Workers' Compensation Corporation, a non-profit organization that supplies workers' comp products throughout the state
For a list of approved companies, visit the Louisiana Workforce Commission's website\_WorkComp\_EmployerCoverage.asp or ask your insurance company directly.
6. Filing Workers' Compensation Claims in Louisiana
To file a claim for workers' compensation in Louisiana, injured workers should notify their employer within 30 days of the injury. It is always better to file a claim closer to the time of the injury.
Injured employees may not receive benefits if workers' compensation claims for medical treatment are not filed within one to three years of the accident date. If there's a dispute about the medical benefits an employee receives, submit a Disputed Claim Form for Medical Treatment Appeal to the Office of Workers Compensation Administration Medical Director. Employees will likely need to file a disputed claim for compensation form, and depending on the case, disputed claims can take six months or more to resolve.
7. Importance of Compliance and Avoiding Penalties
Failing to comply with Workers Comp Insurance Louisiana requirements can result in severe penalties, such as fines, penalties, or even imprisonment. Employers are responsible for maintaining accurate records, classifying employees correctly, and ensuring that they have the necessary workers' compensation coverage in place. Working with a professional insurance agent can help businesses ensure they comply with the state's regulations and avoid potential penalties.
8. Partnering with Bonano Insurance for Workers' Compensation Coverage

Workers' compensation laws and regulations can change over time. It is essential for business owners to stay informed and up-to-date on any changes to ensure compliance and continued coverage for their employees. Regularly reviewing your workers' compensation policy, consulting with an insurance professional, and monitoring updates from the Louisiana Workforce Commission can help businesses maintain compliance and protect their employees.
