2023.05.29 04:31 pdmcmahon Looking for a Siri Shortcut to automatically upload videos from an iPhone to YouTube

My older niece has a two year old, and she often takes a lot of videos of him. I used to save them to Google Photos when she would share them in our group text conversation, though it quickly started to fill up my storage quota.
I was wondering if there is a Siri shortcut which I could share with her, then walk her through how to use it to automatically upload all of her videos to YouTube. Best of all, she can downgrade her iCloud storage from 2 TB which is $9.99 per month.
Thanks in advance.

2023.05.29 04:30 Strict-Bug4079 Kim’s comment about the Kardashian name and how it links back to the family’s deep rooted misogyny.

I saw on TikTok Kim’s comment about Rob having a son or the Kardashian name dies out.
I find it unbelievable that: 1. She would put that kind of pressure on her brother who struggles with depression and mental illness.
  1. That with all of the money and power and MARRIAGES she has been through she still believes in such old fashion views of things. Dream doesn’t have to change her last name, in fact none of the kids do.
I have done some deep dives into this family and I keep seeing how their generational trauma is misogyny. They are not “girl bosses”

2023.05.29 04:29 No_Sort_7346 Has anybody ever claimed "reasonable lifetime warranty" for an appliance purchased on Amazon.ca?

I bought a portable AC on Amazon.ca in 2019, directly from Amazon. It was refurbished but certified "like new". Fast forward to 4 years later, it's not cooling anymore. I used it in my bedroom during heat waves, maybe 2 or 3 nights a week in the summer months.
Lots of people have never heard of it but there's a law in Quebec regarding reasonable lifetime warranty . I know there's a similar law in Ontario. The law states that appliances and electronics should have a reasonable lifetime, regardless of how long the manufacturer or merchant garantee is. In my case, considering how often I used it, I think my AC should still work after 4 years.
The thing is people at Amazon's customer service are located abroad and simply don't care about this law. I mentioned it and the guy I was talking to just said "I don't know Canadian laws" and hung up on me. They keep saying that I have to deal with the manufacturer, but the law clearly states that I don't have to : "You can either undertake this process with the merchant, the manufacturer, or both. A merchant may not require that you deal with the manufacturer."
I will contact the consumer protection office tomorrow but in the meantime I'd like to know if anyone ever had a similar problem with an appliance or electronics purchased on Amazon? What did you do? My next step will probably be to send a formal notice to Amazon because customer service is completely clueless, whether by phone or on the chat.
Thanks in advance for any help you can provide.

2023.05.29 04:29 Sharp_Issue_3178 AITA for wanting low contact with my MIL?

I (F25) got married to my husband (M25) this year. We got engaged on vacation in August, my husband’s grandma died as soon as got to our condo (Sunday). She had suffered with dementia and Alzheimer’s since I met her 5 years ago. My MIL told us that they planned to have the funeral that Friday, meaning we would need to leave our vacation early. Of course, we wouldn’t miss the funeral, but my MIL said they couldn’t have the funeral after we got back (we were supposed to come back Saturday) because she couldn’t take another day with her sister in town (as her sister and her family were in town to say their final goodbyes to their mom). Side note, the grandmother was cremated. Little did I know, that my now husband pre-paid for a bunch of events that we could do which his family did know about.
My husband and I discussed that we weren’t inviting his dad’s set of parents because they are very mean. My MIL and FIL tried to guilt trip us into inviting them, even though they were not financially helping us with the wedding and they thought it would be easier if they just came. Because we weren’t inviting them, my in-laws decided to throw us an “engagement party” so the grandparents who weren’t invited could feel included in wedding festivities. My in-laws wanted us to tell them that it was a small destination wedding with only close friends and family. Also, my MIL wanted us to send out the Save the Dates after their engagement party, so the grandparents wouldn’t find out the date. My MIL also didn’t want me to post photos on my Facebook as the grandma would see them and it wouldn’t play into the small wedding story. The engagement party was in October and we were getting married in April, so I didn’t want to wait and I already verbally told my friends so it wouldn’t matter if I sent out the Save the Dates or not. My MIL pushed to only have the guests be 30 guests and under to keep with the whole “small wedding” charade. This is not my ideal engagement party.
I took my MIL to see my wedding dress, she said “very nice.” Even at our venue outing she wasn’t very interested until she found out that can stay in a cabin, so now she can turn it into a mini vacation. She never asked if I needed help planning my wedding since she didn’t want ti be like her MIL who was too involved. I told them when we got our marriage license and we had two more months until the wedding and then my MIL stated that she got a new job and has unlimited PTO. She glossed over the news and just talked about herself.
For my birthday this year, received a text from her on my birthday, but she then said “sorry it was late.” She texted me at noon-ish then I got a text from my FIL explaining how much stress my MIL through and is switching jobs. I understand, but I didn’t need the explanation…you have like the entire day to just text me. I don’t expect it went you first wake up. AITA for wanting low contact with my MIL?

My MIL doesn’t show any affection/validation. I took her to show my wedding dress, she said “very nice.” At our venue outing she wasn’t very interested until she found out that the place we can stay has cabins that she can rent out, so now she can turn it into a mini vacation. Throughout the whole planning process, she nor my FIL ask if they could help or anything. I told them when we got our marriage license and we had two more months until the wedding and then my MIL stated that she got a new job and has unlimited PTO. She glossed over the news and just talked about herself.
For my birthday this year, received a text from her on my birthday, but she then said “sorry it was late.” She texted me at noon-ish then I got a text from my FIL explaining how much stress my MIL through and is switching jobs. I understand, but I didn’t need the explanation…you have like the entire day to just text me. I don’t expect it went you first wake up.
My MIL also said there was no place for reservations for a “rehearsal dinner” since it no place near took a reservation for a large party or it would cost more. She only looked at the lodge we were staying at the the restaurant we got our wedding catered. I ended up booking a reservation for a place 20 minutes away that took a big party. I didn’t invite my husbands side of the family since my MIL reserved a brunch place for the Sunday after and only invited their friends and not my family (even though we were all staying the night at the same lodge).
On the wedding day, she then asked what time she needed to be there and if there was anything we needed.
I recently received my wedding photos and sent my MIL and FIL all of the photos. I received a text from my FIL two days later saying “great pics.”
I’m just annoyed and frustrated. My husband has talked to them about how they need to give me affirmations, but clearly that did not stick. His parents also just seem to care about his older brother and push my husband to the back burner. His brother lacks basic adulting skills and I think his parents help him to complain about him later. AITA?

2023.05.29 04:29 schwenomorph Wasn't diagnosed as a child even though I feel like I showed plenty of signs. Now, as an adult, I can't afford a professional diagnosis, and my childhood was spent wallowing in self hatred because I thought I was stupid and broken.

I can't lie, I'm pissed at my parents for not getting me diagnosed. My dad was a special ed teacher. I didn't speak until I was three, yet they had no issues with it, I guess. I lived my whole life not knowing why I was so stupid and couldn't fit in. To this day, I legitimately suspect my IQ is in the low 80s because of how much I've struggled and how little I feel I understand.
I didn't speak till three. I didn't walk till around then, too, even though I was fully capable. Had meltdowns when an interruption to my plans occurred. Sensory issues aplenty. Special interests that encompassed me. Unintentional rudeness. Crazy emotional attachments to objects. I once rooted through the garbage to rescue a nasty sweat-stained pillow and hid it from my parents so it wouldn't feel sad. Gullibility. Chewing on my hair, rotating my wrists. Not looking people in the eye. Repeating words ad nauseum. Sometimes I'd literally repeat a word for ten minutes straight if I was terrified. Couldn't understand sarcasm unless the tonal change was obvious. I literally can't wear my glasses for too long, or looking at everything will give me sensory overload. I have to keep my hair short to a old it, too. Every single adult in my life and almost everyone my own age agreed I was eccentric and different. Comorbid disorders. Hell, I even have the GI issues positively correlated with autism. I DIDN'T SPEAK TILL THREE! And my parents thought that was totally normal, I guess!
When I was 19, I nervously brought up autism to my psychiatrist, who immediately said, "Oh yeah, you definitely have it" and proceeded to disect my childhood behaviors and explain all the autistic traits. I'd be much more skeptical of his confidence if I hadn't basically grown up with him (he'd been my psychiatrist for seven years). Plus, he's good at what he does, and was the psychiatrist in charge of an acclaimed residential treatment center (he might still be, I dunno). When I had to get a new psychiatrist, she was more experienced in autism and again, was absolutely sure I had it.
This sounds like everyone clapped at the end, but I've had people kinda watch me while I'm working or something, and they'll say, "You're autistic, right?" before proceeding to tell me about how their nephew totally does that thing I do.
People, ESPECIALLY women and trans people, fall through the cracks that you'd think would be obvious all the time. Because of my parents' incompetence, I've felt like a foreigner in my own country for twenty three years. I've assumed myself to be brainless and sociopathic. I wanted more than anything to know why I was such an awful kid.
Even now, I'm not sure I want to pursue an official diagnosis. That'd be, like, $1,000 bucks. I don't have that kind of money. I'm scared shitless my parents would find out. I can legally be paid less than minimum wage in the USA, where I live.
And that's if I'm diagnosed. I might not be because I'm fully verbal and have had to train myself to be articulate and hyper vigilant to social cues because I was abused if I was anything else, and I've heard too many horror stories of women getting denied a diagnosis because they can smile or have graduated middle school or have a boyfriend or are female. You want me to pay $900 for a 65% chance that some balding white dude will take one look at me and go, "Well, you have a boyfriend and had a job, so no"? You want me to try again with another thousand bucks to be denied again because "Well, you've been to college" or something equally stupid.
I hate this disability. I have to sacrifice my vision to function properly. That is not normal. No matter where I go, I feel like a stranger and an alien. That is not normal. Nothing about the world feels normal to me, and nothing about me feels normal.

2023.05.29 04:28 FaultSea3978 Waiting to take toddler out to eat

We have a 19 month old girl. She is fiercely independent and won’t (willingly) stay in her high chair a minute longer than she has to. As such, my husband and I have actually never taken her out to eat at a restaurant. Heck, when we do takeout, we have it after she goes to bed because she eats her dinner in 5 minutes and then is screaming to get out of her chair.
It has honestly never even caused us an issue with plans. She goes to bed at 6:30-7 so when we do date night or go to a social dinner kind of thing, the babysitter arrives at bedtime and we are out. We kind of just thought we would bring her down the road when she can sit still longer, especially with how much it costs to eat out. We do take her in public a LOT, so it’s not like we just avoid taking her in public at all. When we go out, we work on listening, being safe, etc. Grocery shopping, mall, library, etc., many different places every weekend. We don’t let her run off and once she starts throwing a tantrum, we give one warning and then we pick her up and just leave immediately.
She has never gotten better about screaming in her high chair at home so I don’t know that there would be any point trying to get her “used to” a restaurant.
Just wondering what everyone’s thoughts/experiences have been with their own children.

2023.05.29 04:28 anon_throwaway65 My mom thinks everything is a result of spirits and “spiritual warfare”

Honestly, I’m not looking for advice on how to convert her because that’s not gonna happen but what do I do? I’m 20
Over the last two years my previously normal mom(early 40s) has become extremely religious (Christian) and after her fiancé passed away, she has seriously went off her rocker. He cheated on her shortly before, or attempted to and blamed it all on demons and she believed it so they became very religious and spiritual.
We have been having issues in our garage in the summer, it seems like possibly rodents or maybe birds, but there is always really loud noises in the garage, but she won’t look into it and believes she is under spiritual attack. There is a video on camera with a bucket casting a shadow, but she believes it’s a shadowy figure. Her and her sister both feed into each others delusions.
Yesterday though, we left to grab some food after work around 11:30pm, when we got home at 12:30am or so the RV gate was opened completely the bricks were moved, not to mention I put my bike in front of the gate so you’d have to move it to open it. We called 911 to check it out and clear the house because there was a male voice picked up on the camera and nobody was home.
Someone broke in a while back to steal the bar battery in one of the cars in the backyard (an old classic car) I feel like I’m going insane these people are delusional, someone AN ACTUAL PERSON literally broke into our backyard and her and the rest of my family believe it’s a ghost!!
I’m just really annoyed because my mom is all I have but she is legitimately crazy. It’s affecting our relationship, Her and my family get into these really weird prayer circles and start chanting in tongues, my mom has installed cameras all over the house and our every move is watched, my relative has said people stalk her but they’re demons, she said her husband gets possessed AND THEY ALL BELIEVE IT. My younger sibling has some behavioral issues after his dad passed away, but they just pray. He is in therapy as well, so I don’t think it’s so bad, but every time he throws a tantrum or cusses at her and calls her names they pray over him really crazy and cast out demons and that CANNOT be good for him?? Like I’m the only sane one around here and idk what to do anymore.
What would you do? I’m scared there’s an actual threat to our safety but she doesn’t believe it’s a real person

2023.05.29 04:28 EndGamer32 Chosen Assassin Stronghold

I recently picked up War of the Chosen on sale, and have been surprised at how much more I like the game with this add-on, love the new locations, factions, the lost and even the Chosen showing up in missions. It makes for a really cool experiance that I was thoroughly enjoying...until now. The boss fight is 97% fighting random enemies. That's super lame. I beat her first try, but lost two of my highest ranked soldiers in the process. She made three whole appearances in the entire fight. Like literally, she shows up, I hit her with a couple grenades and a Reaper and she goes off to take a nap for a few turns. That's it? All the build up leading to this fight made it seem like it would be something special and it's just wack. I'd rather her health bar spanned the entire screen and she spent an hour vanishing on me, at least then I'm actually fighting the boss, not just endless waves of the same old enemy types.

2023.05.29 04:27 RPGrandPa Incorporating Temple of Elemental Evil into a homebrewed region

I want to put another question . . . more like an idea to you folks. Something I've been pondering on this afternoon. I took the advice of a lot of you guys and instead of doing an established world, I am doing a homebrewed (region), roughly 162 miles East/West, 120 North/South - The Borderlands Region Map. It's more of a wilderness region than anything, and it is based off the Fortress on the Wild Frontier map.
One of the main points of interest is Skenrith Keep which will be the Keep on the Borderlands "thanks u/Nameless-Designer for giving me the inspiration". But anyways, Keep on the Borderlands will be used heavily I am sure but . . . I also am adding the village of Hommlet and the Moathouse. My original plan was to make Lareth the Beautiful the primary bad guy where he is creating a cult . . . still working on the story for this but . . . I got to think.
(I am using Old-School Essentials as our game system for our campaign)
Question: How could I incorporate Temple of Elemental Evil into this but remove everything Greyhawk related? Is this possible with this adventure? How could I drop this adventure into a small region like this and make it work without all the Greyhawk stuff? The reason I am asking this is because I try to not read an adventure unless I plan to run in for a group in case I actually get to play as a player I don't want to spoil the adventure for myself so I don't know all the adventure details and figured I would ask here first to see if it was even possible first. I know all about the Hommlet part of the adventure because I've started playing the Temple adventure but the campaign fell apart before we made it to the temple.
If it is too much work reskinning Temple of Elemental Evil, I could just go with the Moathouse and Lareth being the end boss of the adventure instead.
Thoughts?

2023.05.29 04:27 Gilgos90 future of a certain yonko crew?!

Fist of all i love the latest chapters seeing more of the 3 other yonko crews. all of them have something really cool about them (especially BB&crew)! :) But in this post i want to talk about the Cross guild which is a kinda funny constellation but has potential if they keep going.
i like that they're some kind of catch basin for all kinds of pirates, ex shichibukais etc. and i love that one of my favorites the badass Sir Crocodile is back and part of it! :)
they're already a cool crew with many known members but not rly heavyhitters except for mihawk and sir crocodile. do you think they will grow and collect some of the above mentioned people storywise? let's say all or most of these lonely pirates decide to become a crew member or ally of the bigger parties. who has a chance of joining the cross guild?:)
BOA HANCOCK (most likely SH grand fleet?!), DOFLAMINGO, WEEVIL, EUSTASS KID (really dead?), TRAFALGAR LAW/BEPO (one of my favorites too, probably SH grandfleet too although the cross guild could need a heavyhitter and doctor in the crew?!)
one of my dreams for the cross guild that i hoped has a little chance of becoming true most likely hasn't any chance anymore after recent chapters :( i was hoping for PERONA to rescue GECKO MORIA on Hachinosu. Then they escape with the thriller bark and join the cross guild because of the relationship/"friendship" to MIHAWK and as a result the thriller bark becomes the main ship of the cross guild. it could have been perfect imo. it's like a swimming island and moving HQ and huge enough that all corners of the crew can have their own space (mihawk can live in a castle again and buggy is safe from being beaten all the time by mihawk and sir crocodile :D ). they could give it the classy buggy clown/circus theme while the old mouthgate gets replaced with a HUGE RED BUGGY NOSE and the chains can look like rope like in a circus tent!!^^
but now they already built a buggy themed ship for them :'( (they could still leave that at the coast of thriller bark but now chances are zero if there were any to begin with)
SRY for that really long text. wasn't expecting to write that much but i was thinking about that a lot and this time i decided to post it?! Sincerely a cross guild fan^^

2023.05.29 04:26 kiwii4am Would it be worth it for me to apply for disability?

I am 21 years old, I live at home but am not properly supported by my mom. I have chronic pain that’s been getting progressively worse since 2019/2020. But I’ve had symptoms since childhood. I don’t have a diagnosis though, none of my doctors have been able to figure it out. On the best days I can stand for around 20 minutes with some leg pain or shakiness, on the worst I can’t even stand for 5 with extreme pain and shaking. I can’t lift a whole lot, on my best days I can carry two gallon water jugs, and I can’t lift things off the floor, they need to be somewhat elevated. I have occasional falls, and recently I’ve been having more days where I’m bedridden from pain. I can’t work a typical retail job, I barely could when my flare ups were just period related, I imagine I wouldn’t last two hours nowadays. I can’t work from home, and getting to and from a job is so daunting. Even if I did take the bus, I flare up walking anywhere, I also get lost very easily. I also have autism, I’m diagnosed as of 2021. I was never give a level, and I don’t think the full scope(?) of my autism was shown when I was tested because I was heavily dissociated back then. I require support with things like making phone calls/appointments, remembering to eat drink water or take meds, speaking to doctors, cooking sometimes, and other things. I do have a partner who cares for me in a way a partner does, but she is not my caregiver, she has no business taking on my moms role, I don’t want that even if she could. My mom does less than the bare minimum if she can help it, my mom is only home for a few hours 3/4 days a week now bc she’s staying with her boyfriend. Our relationship is very strained for multiple reasons, me being disabled, unemployed, and my autism no longer being palatable are some reasons for it. I have to beg for her to do simple things like take me to the store for groceries (she does it fine for my younger siblings), she loves putting things off that comes to me, and loves arguing against any request for things that’ll make things more accessible, she’s admitted to not checking her voicemail anymore when her number is on everything because I can’t take the calls from my drs. She clearly doesn’t care all that much, but I need her, she’s the only one who can help, she’d be the one helping me apply for disability when she thinks I just like being at home and my pain is my fault and my autism is just something that she hates I can’t fix. Doesn’t give me a lot of confidence when the process is already so difficult and draining. I also heard they only look at what you have been diagnosed with, which makes sense, but even though my autism is so disabling, people are ignorant and I’m unsure if they’d see how disabled I am just from how my brain is. I wonder if it’s even worth it, knowing I’ll get denied first time, knowing it takes years to get accepted and also years to get diagnosed when it comes to chronic pain. My moms been bringing up how i need to plan on working again, as if I’ve just been taking a vacation since Jan of 2021…telling me I just have to “get used to the pain like everyone else does”. It all feels hopeless, and I need someone who knows more than me to be honest if starting the process of applying for disability is worth it considering all these factors.

2023.05.29 04:25 the_art_of_the_taco [30F] What might cause a several-years-healed (biopsy) scar to suddenly open and bleed?

Photos of the current situation as well as the pre- and post-biopsy. I found the May 2020 photo after already making the other collages, whoops! I feel like there's some other weirdness going on with my skin around it but that might not be related.
In 2020 had a blue (?) mole biopsied after it went from a slight discoloration to a substantial entity in about two and a half years (doubling in size over the year leading up to the punch). As far as I know it was benign.
I've scrounged up a few pictures to try and show how it progressed, I'm sorry they're shitty quality. I ended up covering it with my hand or my sleeve most of the time, it had grown both around and "out" by the time finally had it yoinked.
After the procedure it healed normally, less noticable than most of my scars, and I put it out of my head for the first time in years. Last march it was nearly invisible.
Several days ago, I felt something on my arm and reached under my sweater to scratch it (I know, I know, but thought it was just a hair or something), when pulled my hand back there was blood on my fingers. It was a few hours later, while getting ready for bed, that I realized the biopsy scar itself had been bleeding and opened up.
It's now been like 5 days and there's a scab but it's still irritated and tends to almost flake blood off over the day and night, the scab looks "fresh". It doesn't seem like it's healing super well.
I do have an appointment with a new dermatologist late June, but I'm honestly more confused than anything. Google kept giving me information about how scabs take a while to scar, instead of old scars scabbing. I'm sure it's nothing serious, I've just never had it happen before and I'm a curious person.
Per the rules, here's what's been going on elsewise medically (I won't drag out the symptoms unless someone requests it):
I have a lush family medical history (besides ADHD and insomnia on both sides). Maternal: Grandmother passed to cholangiocarcinoma; uncle has Polycythemia Vera; mother has idiopathic pancreatitis. Paternal: Grandmother had breast cancer and a myocardial infarction in her 40s; grandfather had prostate cancer, pulmonary embolism; aunt had something with her gall bladder and it was removed; uncle and father have various amounts of degenerative disc disease; father has non-small cell lung cancer. I did not inherit BRCA or any other associated familial mutations but I am at a slightly elevated risk of breast cancer. I did inherit a spine that hates me.
.
Thanks to anyone who can give me some sort of insight while wait for my appointment!

2023.05.29 04:24 mikaelus Living in a BW bungalow, from one of residents

By Yishen Kuik: https://www.facebook.com/yishen.kuik/posts/10159474346650382
Black and White
Much of what has been written on Ridout and the Black and White houses is incorrect - and understandably so as very few members of the public live in one. This is because the SLA manages 500 or so units, of which many are reserved leases (American military in Sembawang, British Council in Dover), commercial leases or educational leases which leaves only a few hundred residential. Renters tend to stay for a long time so turnover is low. There might only be a few dozen opportunities to rent a year, so public interaction is miniscule compared with the private market.
Nonetheless, there is always a stock of dilapidated Black and Whites waiting to be restored for when demand is strong. Units often stay vacant for years. Why? The pool of renters is niche. The houses are old, come with no a/c, no hot water, no cabinets, no facilities & no appliances : exactly how they would have been in 1920-1940. The land area may be large but you cannot enlarge your house or build anything on it - this is why psf methods of valuing them don't make any sense. The land is not yours to do as you please. The plot ratio is not usable. The large field is only for you to mow and for your dog to run on. You can build a pool but you have to remove it when you leave. For barracks style units there is no security guard, or tennis court and you cannot prevent the public from wandering up to your window. For these reasons they usually rent for below the price of a comparable condo or house.
I looked at maybe 30 units before leasing mine, and I also grew up in the HoopeMakepeace cluster. Minister Shan's unit which was leased in 2018, would in my estimation have leased in the 20k to 35k range - nothing like the 200k or more bandied around by those with an agenda to enrage. The SLA lease process is designed to prevent corruption. If the situation is competitive, you submit a deposit to register your interest and then you drop off your blind bid at SLA by a deadline. The next day all the bids will be published. Someone will call you if you won and if you agree to honor your bid, the top bid will be published as the winner. Otherwise they might confiscate your deposit and talk to the second bidder. Even if you bid double the next person you cannot change your bid - and every bid is in the public record *before* you can decide yes or no. This is all then archived after a few months. If this process is not circumvented there should be no reason why anyone cannot bid on it, even the Minister.
Why even have Black and Whites?
So why do we even preserve these Black and Whites? If the demand is low, why not build HDB flats or condos instead on them?
Today only the SLA manages Black and Whites, but back in 1920 Singapore was full of them. When the British left Singapore they handed over all military and civil service housing to the Singapore Government. This became the SLA portfolio. The private sector Black and Whites were mostly slowly demolished and replaced by modern homes that built over the grounds. Without the SLA's conservation effort the current portfolio would be similarly wiped out by each owner's desire to maximize living space, monetize plot ratio or break into pieces to distribute upon death.
The SLA has been creative about how to keep these B&W estates alive by making them relevant as beautiful residential estates that double as a sort of historical park for the public, F&B and lifestyle spaces like Seletar and Dempsey and universities like UBS at Command House.
They serve as an extension of the National Museum and play a soft role in nation building and our shared identity as Singaporeans. They play a role in tourism and what international visitors takeaway in their minds about Singapore.
The conservation effort has been far sighted in my opinion, but you need people to occupy and maintain them for otherwise they will fall apart. When tenants leave they must restore everything back to the original 1920-40 condition for the next tenant. So you pay to put in a/c, hot water, cabinets, fridge, washing machine, oven, stove .... and then you pay *again* to remove them all. In that sense, when you lease a Black and White, you are effectively a custodian of it for Singapore even as you enjoy the surroundings of a bygone era - a win-win conservation solution.
(I was prompted to write this after reading Calvin Cheng's well written pieces. I think Calvin has got it right and I think the inaccuracies in the accusations are so blatant they cannot be guilty of ignorance but rather creative malice. Nonetheless, the SLA process was built to withstand corruption and it is fitting that it should be tested it to see if the public's faith is justified).

2023.05.29 04:24 WhatdaFUisUP666 Bones is washed?

Been hearing a lot of people saying bones isn’t good anymore and hasn’t put out good music since like 2018. Bones and shwb really started the underground rap scene. Really since 2018/2019 I seen all the bones fans switch over the G59 and kinda give up on bones. I mean even shakewell and rappers like $not gets bigger crowds than bones..how did it come to this? Idk man I hope bones has a big break and blows up or something because it seems being a bones fan is old news. I’m sure this will get downvoted, but you tell me. What’s the future for bones?

2023.05.29 04:23 Zestyclose_Act_8630 AITA for choosing to not go to my younger sister’s high school graduation?

My younger sister and I have never gotten along. We’re polar opposites, so we’ve always fought, but more than other siblings (or so I’ve been told by many people.)
She’s given a lot more than I was at her age. She’s had monumental screw ups (that happened because of her poor decision making) throughout high school that have affected not only my parents, but me also, financially, mentally, emotionally, socially, etc. and I’ve not done anything comparable to what she’s done (again, or so I’m told by others.) I’ve lost friends because of some of the things she’s done.
She never hesitates to make me feel awful about the way my life is going. She’s used my weaknesses (my anxiety, depression, eating disorder, etc.) against me. She throws actual two year old temper tantrums to get her way because she knows people will give in because of how difficult she’s being.
Still, despite all of this, I’ve tried to be nice to her in the hopes that it would cause her to want to be nice to me. My mom’s always said “If you’re nice to her, she’ll want to be nice to you.” I invite her to go get food with me. I invite her to do things with me and my friends when she’s lonely and doesn’t have any friends to do stuff with herself. I give her small gifts just because sometimes.
Don’t get me wrong, my parents aren’t bad parents. They’re not allowing and enabling her to spite me, they just don’t want to deal with the crap they’d get from my sister. It’s too tiring to stick to the punishments they set for her because she messes up so so often.
I’m in college currently, living in a dorm during the semester, but at home on breaks and the summer. Once I move out of my parent’s house for good though, I want nothing to do with my sister anymore. She’s made my life a living hell.
My parents are basically saying I’m in the wrong because she went to my high school graduation, even though we didn’t get along, and she’s my sister, so I should be there for her. A lot of this behavior that she’s been doing has gotten a lot worse in the last year or so, and I graduated three years ago, so our relationship has gotten a lot worse since I graduated.
AITA?

2023.05.29 04:22 everydayislegday8 He’ll be a great dad, but what about how he’s treating me?

I’m 12+ weeks pregnant with my first. A lot has happened in the last little while. I lost my mom in December to metastatic breast cancer. She was only 59. My best friend and my whole heart. I do not have much family and no one is close or caring so nobody has reached out to me since her funeral. It’s been incredibly lonely but I carry on as she would. I have relocated twice, sold my childhood home and we moved into our house.
I get my husband has been along side a lot of this but it is so very raw and painful for me. He has always struggled with showing empathy towards me and putting me first. I felt over time he has softened and grown but it’s unfortunately not really reality.
Now that I’m pregnant and I really have what feels like “no one”…I am really scared. I do not want to have to depend on him for everything. I’m scared to be vulnerable. I feel so insecure around him. There’s something he is giving off that is making me feel that way. Like I can’t just be completely free or safe.
He tries.. he cooks and helps out as much as he can.He does a lot but he’s also so irritable, condescending and miserable. It’s like he hates me but he’s doing what he feels he has to do. I pick up on everything, every tone and his body language. I work full time as a nurse and he downplays me working 12 hours when I compare it to his 8 hours.
My in laws haven’t provided much support and I’ve asked him not to share about the pregnancy yet. His MIL is very overbearing. She’s been known to make continued really inappropriate comments and she only cares about his well-being. It’s a strange dynamic. The situation makes me feel so painfully lonely and uncomfortable. He doesn’t see it for what it is so he feels I’m keeping him from his family.
I know in my heart he will be a good father but what about me? He’s not terrible but you never forget how you were treated during your pregnancy
I wish I had my mom to talk too. I don’t know what to do
I’m suppose to tell this grown man “I’m sure this is hard for you too but can you please be nicer?”.
I heard myself saying to him “ I know you hate your life, why don’t you plan something with your friends”. I don’t deserve this

2023.05.29 04:22 Puzzleheaded-Map2152 SSI for Baby

I apologize in advance for the length of this post. I am completely unfamiliar with SSI and could really use some advice/experience/help. I’m considering applying for my 7 month old daughter, but I am so clueless about the process or if my daughter would even qualify.
My daughter is not profoundly disabled, but has enough going on that I can’t go back to work FT as planned and we are struggling financially. We are about $7k over the income limit for EBT/WIC/public assistance/etc. so we have no help besides food banks which I do utilize.
My daughter was born full term and they immediately heard a heart murmur. She began seeing a cardiologist and was diagnosed with moderate pulmonary arterial stenosis. She began being monitored bi-weekly and when the stenosis became severe, they opted to do cardiac catheterization. Her case was too severe for the procedure and they instead had to do open-heart surgery at 3 months. Her surgery went well and she’s doing a lot better. We are very lucky and so grateful.
The severity of her pulmonary stenosis made the Cath lab decide to test for a genetic disorder called Noonan’s Syndrome, for which my daughter is positive. So now in addition to cardiology, she sees a geneticist. She has ptosis (a weak eyelid muscle) which is monitored by an ophthalmologist. They will likely choose to repair the problem with surgery within the next 6 months. My daughter is a peanut, in the 5th percentile and being down and out from her surgery has set her back on milestones by about 6 weeks. She was referred to and accepted into EI for PT/OT and feeding difficulties. She requires home PT/OT with us every day to help her progress in her therapies.
We initially planned for my mom to babysit her while I worked FT or daycare, but my mom doesn’t feel comfortable doing her daily therapies and feeding routines and I get it. It’s a lot and it’s scary when it’s not your baby to be responsible for so much. Daycare is not option for 1. The cost would make it pointless, and also I don’t think they’d be able to give her all of the care she needs with her PT/OT and feeding needs.
My daughter is strong, so intelligent and always determined to do things herself. She holds her own bottle and figured out how to roll all over the place to get where she wants to go. And then there are areas with fine and gross motor skills where she really struggles, and she can’t hold down food, only formula. She vomits every bit of baby food up about 15 mins after digesting. She is going to see a GI specialist to rule out anything GI related. All of the areas she’s delayed in are all related to Noonan’s Syndrome so it all makes sense and we are confident that as long as we continue being advocates for her, making sure we get to every appointment, do her therapies every day, and give her love, support, patience and understanding, that she will thrive when she’s a little older.
But for now, it’s a lot. Appointments can last 30 mins to 2 hours depending on who she needs to see and if they’re behind. We have to leave an hour early to find parking, get her situated, figure out where we are going, and hope there isn’t a huge delay in the doc’s schedule. This week, she has a home visit with a parenting support program that we do every week, pediatrician Tues, a sonogram on her kidneys (for monitoring due to Noonan’s Syndrome) blood work for Noonan’s Syndrome, PT, OT and her daily home PT/OT exercises. Some weeks are less hectic, but every day is PT/OT exercises, and we also have to keep her upright after bottles to keep her from throwing up. We love our daughter dearly and I am so blessed to have the support of a devoted husband, doctors, specialists and therapists who genuinely love and care for our daughter. And I am fortunate to have the patience and ability to stay home. But we are struggling so much financially. Between mortgage, car insurance, utilities, bills, food, formula, household essentials, car repairs and upkeep, etc. we are always barely scraping by. It’s so hard and the mental load feels unbearable sometimes. I have anxiety, depression, PTSD, ADD and Binge-Eating disorder, though with psychiatry, counseling, meds, a supportive partner, and my own determination, I’m managing well. I am also enrolled in college PT trying to earn a degree so I can work from home doing writing jobs like grant writing and writing books and other gigs like editing or ghost writing, etc. But that’s going to take time.
I guess I am asking, in anyone’s experience, does our situation sound like we should apply for SSI? I feel like they’re going to tell us we are on our own and that scares me. I’m afraid of losing our home, of the financial burdens impacting an otherwise very healthy and happy marriage and the risk all the stress puts on me and my husband and both our mental health.
Can anyone offer some advice or opinions or experiences that might be helpful?

2023.05.29 04:20 whatabeaner Dispatcher Career Advice & Tips Pls

Hello friends, I am extremely interested in becoming a dispatcher . For background information, I have a Bachelors degree: Political Science with a concentration in Public Law and a double minor: psychology & ethnic studies.
I would love to go back to school to get a degree in Criminology (most likely an intelligence analyst). However that is not likely to happen this year or next due to the financial difficulty it comes with .
For the meantime I would love to have a stable & career-experience building opportunity. Given that I’ve also worked customer service/retail for more than 4 years, I desire a job that aligns with my career interests.
Can anyone please share how they were able to obtain their job as a dispatcher?
& The requirements it took in order to become one ?
& any advice ?
I’m currently located in California.

2023.05.29 04:20 BulletRazor To be a Washington LMHCA do you have to be located IN Washington state? (Telehealth)

Hi all!
I am currently residing in Texas with plans to relocate to Washington state hopefully in about a year. I have read about how with doing telehealth it matters what state the client is in. I’ve checked Washington and Texas telehealth laws and I believe this to be the case.
Is it possible to apply to be an LMHCA in the state of Washington online and do telehealth out of the state of Texas (of course you still need a supervisor and such) I’d rather not do an LPC-I to LPC in Texas and transfer considering I have no plans to stay here.
Thank you!

2023.05.29 04:19 LipstickRibsteak AITA for wanting my wife to stay up during a road trip and talk to me?

I'm writing this right now at the hotel where I'm at because I'm genuinely at a loss of words, I don't think I'm in the wrong but at the same time, she looks really pissed at me.
My wife, me, and our 2 year old are going on our first family road trip to California.
We rotate driving in shifts, but the problem is that when I was driving, my shift fell during the night, and so I was feeling really lonely and bored as I was driving. I'm not someone who can be left to his own thoughts very well, and I need people around me, I thrive on energy and excitement.
My wife is a bit of the opposite. She's generally fine with being left alone and can sit quietly for hours and hours upon end.
The problem is that around 11:00 p.m., I was driving and my wife and our son were in the backseat. I was feeling isolated, so I shook her awake, but then our son woke up, and well, you can probably guess what happens next.
Once he quieted down, my wife began to quietly blow up at me, about how much of a dick I was being. I told her that it wasn't fair for her to just sleep like that, and it made me feel like a driver. She then said that she doesn't force me to stay awake or engange with her, but I told her that that's a cheap blow because we're not the same people, and I kept my mouth shut while she was driving because I know she doesn't like distractions even though it bothered me terribly, so the least she could do is to stop being selfish and help keep me sane.
Despite my perfectly logical answer, she apparently got emotional, and then started whisper screaming some shit about how raising one toddler is hard enough, and that she didn't know there was another one in the car who needed his whims catered to at every moment, and at that point, since she got rude, I decided to disengange. Now our whole trip is falling apart and she's making me out to be the bad guy.

2023.05.29 04:19 UsonianFiend Killer dog? Help!

So my dog has a problem with murd3ring the local squirrel population. For some reason she is super good at this. This was just a few days of work. I am looking for advice of why she might be having this behavior. If it's caused by drive, or if it's a behavior caused by a need. Some extra information; yes we go on walks often. Walks included exploration and mental stimulation through games and commands she has amazing recalls and self control, know how to be off lead/heel. shes almost 4y old, with higher than normal energy levels. She is very cuddly and leaves personal space. she is not aggressive in anyway, no food agression, leash, territory (just very cautious till she knows they were invited) just barks and growls. she's very fit and gets fed high-quality food.
