2023.04.02 07:10 cyklone117 Calculating the area of a lake using rate of algae growth

My highest level of math is calculus 101 so bear with me on the flair. If it’s wrong, I’ll change it.
This question was inspired by something Neil deGrasse Tyson said in one his public appearances. In the program, Tyson demonstrates that the average human is not very good at thinking exponentially, rather we’re good at thinking linearly and he uses this example.
There’s a lake of unknown size with some algae on it. This type of algae doubles its coverage each day. After one month has passed, the lake is half covered in this algae. The question Tyson posed is how much time until the lake is completely covered in this algae?
Tyson states that because of our linear thinking brain, we’d answer one month, but the actual answer is one day. My question is if the size of the initial sample of algae is known, is it possible to calculate the area of this lake with the previously given information?

2023.04.02 07:10 juanpercent01 Accidentally pulled film at night

So today I was shooting night pics of neon signs with my Minolta x700 using cinestill 800T. Problem is when I finished the roll and when I looked at the camera I realized I didn’t set the camera to iso 800, it was left at iso 400. I was using a light meter and was properly exposing the pictures I was taking and was wondering if I should leave it as it is when I develop it or tell the lab I pulled it by one to 400? Will all my exposures come out fine?

2023.04.02 07:09 AmazonDipz [Question] Recently Purchased 12 Pro Max iOS on 14.8

My previous 12 Pro Max was damaged; therefore, I thought I’d look out for another one on iOS 14.
I managed to discover an immaculate listing of whom the seller assured me the device was on iOS 14.2. I missed a listing for an iOS 15.1 device moments prior.
However, to my disappointment, it was on iOS 14.8☹️ And Fugu14 seems abandoned post-iOS 14.5.1.
On the day of arrival suddenly the apparent uncrackable later version have a new Jailbreak that’s been released (Fugu 15 Max) is announced🥸 I’ve since boxed it back up, most likely returning it.
What’s my best option? Acquiring a 12 Pro Max (or 13? Unsure if the upgrades worth much salt):
Also, anything on the horizon for iOS >15.4-16?
If anyone has any advice, I’d greatly appreciate it. Thanks!😊

2023.04.02 07:09 MylegzRweelz Hackintosh newb looking for some guidance and answers

Hey guys, so I have been on the fence with building a Hackintosh for ages, since the original Mac Mini/ATV days, I just didn't have a spare PC as I was unwilling to buy a bunch of parts brand new just to see if I could do it, well it went to the back burner for a while and in the meantime, I have become a tradebarterer and came up on a fairly decent PC, it has an i7 6700, ASUS Prime h270 MB, uncertain of RAM GBs (I want to say it has 16gb) and a 128gb Kingston SSD + 2tb HDD. It doesn't have a GFX card but it does have integrated GFX, I believe. All I know is that it powers on and posts. I haven't done anything with this system yet besides going into the UEFI/BIOS and sniffed around, so I really can't answer many questions, yet. My intentions are to turn this into a daily driven Hackintosh so I can learn more about Apple's beautiful OS. I plan to use it along with my 24" Dell 1080p monitor (I can't remember the model number but it looks good enough) and connect my digital microscope that I have in my soldering workstation as well as some light video editing. I am super excited to get this project started because I love to learn new OSes and to tinker. I chase that rewarding feeling of successfully modding/'hacking'/troubleshooting my devices. So, my question(s) are this:
1) OS Version: Which version of Mac OS is most compatible with my PC? Is it possible to get Ventura running?
2) Graphics Card: I don't plan to use this to game, not even emulation but I do want to have a GFX card that is stable and compatible with little work to get running. I am not afraid of troubleshooting, I just want to go easy in my first rodeo. So, what is a recommended GFX card that works nicely with OSX in combination with my parts?
3) Additional hardware. What is:
4) I've used OpenCore Legacy Patcher 0.6.2 and created a Monterey installer, just to get a better understanding of what this process entails and feels like. So my question here is: Can anybody help me with providing the correct settings in the Patcher tool for the hardware I am running? Which Mac do I pick in the settings box ie: macpro 3,1, mac mini 7,1 etc? Which Kexts are needed? If there is a guide that is for hardware similar to the hardware I am using, can you please link it to me? Thank you.
I apologize for so many questions. I just want to know what additional hardware and settings I need to set before moving forward.

2023.04.02 07:08 lexkarq SnapShot; Will I Be Penalized for Speeding?

Couldn’t find a straight answer for this on Google, Reddit, or Progressive’s website so hopefully someone with Snapshot will see this post.
I have Snapshot and my scores are great for everything except I speed. The app doesn’t mark or show anything related to speed, but Progressive’s website does admit it tracks speeding. So there isn’t anyway for me to view how they monitor it and if it’s a problem; however, they do have the info.
Speeding is a normal occurrence for me; the roads are almost always empty at the times I go to and from work. Nothing insane like 80+ MPH, just 10-15 MPH above the speed limit.
Anyone know if Progressive is going to raise my rates for this, and if I should just get rid of the app now before my trial period ends? Like I said, my scores are great in everything else but the speeding is a normal thing for me.
Edit: All of the reviews I’ve seen of Snapshot heavily emphasize that the “hard braking” over average miles driven is what mainly determines your driver score. It seems obvious that a car insurance company would care about speeding, but it’s nowhere on the app or in any Snapshot reviews. That’s why I’m unsure if this will affect it.

2023.04.02 07:08 ittybittyme1980 How to tell someone you don’t want to be friends?

A man I briefly dated several years ago who lives in a different province is working in the area and has been trying to reconnect. Could be for friendship could be he’s hoping to get lucky, I haven’t entertained him enough to find out. My dilemma is I’m not really interested in either. Nothing personal towards him, I just don’t feel like casual hookups right now and I don’t want to invest any of my time in to a likely fleeting friendship. I don’t know how to tell him this without coming across like a snob. I’ve tried the slow fade or straight up not answering his ‘how are you’ messages but it’s not working. I don’t want to straight up ghost him as that feels unnecessarily rude in this case.
So, what would you guys say to him in my shoes?

2023.04.02 07:07 HelloMyNameIsDennis The Simple Attention Practice - Part 2d

Last note on Part 2 before I move onto Part 3,
I recommend that you set aside up to 3 times per day, at least 10-20 mins to do this practice.
If you are first starting out with meditation and you find that time length challenging, then 3-5 minutes to start is perfectly fine.
I find it's optimal for me to do this practice 2-3 times per day.. In the morning to set firmly the separation between the Attention/Awareness, and the Ego (emotions, thoughts) In the afternoon, as the body/mind start to fatigue it tends to get lazy and as a result the Awareness also drops and old habits take over unconsciously. A quick refresher is good to remind and revitalize. And then in the Evening to staple the separation before I drop off into sleep.
There are 2 things that you should be aware of as you continue the practice... don't go searching for these things though, just continue practicing and notice when these things happen to you because it's a natural side effect of the practice.
  1. As you notice that you are caught in the Emotion/Thought and then fall back into giving Attention to your body, at some point you'll notice a shift. You'll notice that you were far away, nearly blind and in some other place in your imagination and the moment you notice, you were back here and now... I know this sounds obvious, But when your Awareness becomes sharpened with more separation, you will really notice a profound shift as if you were in a tunnel and you snapped back to reality. Some people may be worried that they were stuck in an Emotion/Thought.. Some kind of conflict etc... But the opposite is true, The fact is that your Body/Mind created these pathways over years of training, slight triggers set off defensive mechanisms that call in chemical changes and triggers feelings, emotions, images and because it's been grooved into you so deeply your body/mind causes you to unconsciously go into these patterns. Through these exercises you are learning, maybe for the first time, to become conscious when you fall into there unconscious patterns and by choice, exit.
  2. Once you've exited, you are now in Presence.. in the Here and Now. At first you may only be able to stay Present for a moment before your unconscious patterns start taking over again but the more you practice the longer the gaps between the unconscious moment will be. The Present is a powerful place to be, It's away from the unconscious fears, anger, wants, needs, lack, etc... You're in a place where you have no thoughts, and no emotions... You're just Aware of being Aware. You are essentially the I AM.. I Am.. what? nothing... just the I Am... You are not identified with anything. If you are profoundly present in the moment ( and you will have these moments as you continue to practice ) you will separate from all thoughts, all emotions, and you'll look around you and for a moment you will be looking at the world just as a new born baby looks at the world. A new born baby looks at the world and just see's things, it has no identity and it applies no identities to objects or space, it does not consider time and so has no concepts for past or future.. it's just there watching.
After experiencing these things, a natural question will arise. Who am I ? Am I the one that's emotional and thinking, or Am I the one that is Aware of the emotions and thinking?
I'll give you the answer - but as you practice keep in mind that you will experience the answer.. (if that sounds strange,, once you experience it you'll know what I mean, it's the biggest AHA moment you'll have)
The answer is that you are the Awareness.. you're the I Am.
You're pure Awareness/Attention..
As the Awareness was placed on the things it was placed on, those things manifested.. You were continually being the I Am this emotion, and I Am that thought.

In part 3, I'll start talking about how you then tether a Feeling to Awareness, and how you maintain effortlessly the feelings of I Am Love, or I Am Abundant, or I Am in a Fulfilling Relationship And very importantly the distinct difference between these feelings and emotions.

If you've been keeping up with my posts and have been starting the practice, You may already intuitively understand how this changes the way you think about Manifestation.
If you were like me in my early days, you were trying to change your emotion/thoughts while you were trapped in the emotion/thoughts.. This is a big no no, and it is only going to cause big time strain and pain. It will likely manifest not only as disappointment but in time would manifest as sickness and physical injuries as well.
Last but something that's Very Important to point out,
You Manifest FROM the place of Presence.
Why is this?
Presence is the hub of all Creation,
Think of Presence as the earth, when you get caught up in a emotion/thought.. you (the Awareness) is getting sucked up the roots of a tree (that was unconsciously planted long ago) and drawn up the trunks and into the branches of imaginations and thoughts... the more you stay the more you feed that tree and the energy you give that tree eventually causes the tree to bear fruits.. and those fruits are a direct expression of the State that the Tree is. In this case lets say it's Fear. Fear then is expressed when you feed it to people and the environment around you..
When you are identified as this Tree of Fear and you are tired of being the Tree of Fear, most people look around and decide they want to be the Tree of Courage.. they then start bending the tree, snapping the branches, pulling and pushing and willing Love Pears to grow out of this Fear Apple tree.. The only thing that's going to happen is that the tree is going to become gnarled and diseased.
What needs to happen is, Awareness needs to leave the tree - thus removing all energy from the Tree of Fear. It goes back into the soil where it then through the process of creation, feels the feeling of courage which causes it to go from Nothing (Awareness) to Something which is a seed of the Tree of Courage. The seed is then planted deep within the soil of the earth, and as it remains Aware of being the feeling of Courage it give energy to the seed allowing it to grow. As it remains the feeling of Courage the process speeds up to the point of exponential growth and the next thing you know you have birthed a tree that is bearing the fruit of Courage.

It's really an amazing process, and the analogy of death and rebirth is so appropriate. “Truly, truly, I say to you, unless one is born again he cannot see the kingdom of God.”
Right here Jesus say's so. Kingdom of God only means your version of Salvation. To leave the tree you were once giving energy to is to die. you kill that tree from lack of attention. Then you are reborn into a new tree, one of your own choice.

I hope this gives you all the more motivation to continue practicing,
Again, any questions you have please comment below and I'll answer them.

2023.04.02 07:06 monamonaghan I think my dad is cheating on my mom and I don’t know what to do

I’m incredibly lost and I don’t know what to do.
My (27F) parents (Early 50s) have been married for about 25 years, have (what I believed to be) a very devoted relationship and are generally very affectionate, loving people.
They have had some ups and downs (fights here and there and mental health issues, but nothing so serious it couldn’t be overcome within a day or two.)
About a week ago we were playing games together when my dad’s phone kept going off. At one point I noticed he was speaking to someone on Snapchat who’s name I didn’t recognize.
I was surprised as both my mom and I mainly use Snapchat to talk exclusively in our family groupchat.
Because I was curious, I used my phone camera to zoom in on his phone and discovered he was sexting this other person while myself and my mother were in the room. Immediately a pit formed in my stomach. I suppose you can say curiosity killed the cat, but I can’t undo what I did. I have been in a bit of a spiral ever since and am not sure what to do. I have photographic proof of the person he was talking to and a photo of one of the graphic messages.
My dad is notoriously sketchy about handing off his phone, to the point that it’s a joke in our family. But now, I guess I know why.
My gut instinct is to approach him first. I have proof of his behavior and am looking for an answer. My mom is going through a personal difficult time with work and health and I am not interested in escalating her stress levels… even though I think that will come eventually. I’d like to spare her, if only for a little while longer.
Looking for any and all advice on what to do. I am shaken to my core and feel like I am on the verge of having a panic attack every day. Has anyone else been in a similar situation and approached the parent they suspected of cheating first?
All advice and insight welcome, thank you 🙏

Hi guys,
Been thinking about tax... I mean, I've not personally paid any, I have simply left Simplicity and Investnow to sort it and so far, IRD has not come after me.
Is that how it's meant to be? Am I meant to calculate the tax on my investment and pay IRD myself?

2023.04.02 07:05 boblikeshispizza Kankis Backstory

Now that Kankis arc is over, lets look over his backstory. Dont get me wrong, the parts that we saw were good. But i feel like it needed alot more. It was never answered who Kanki was before the Saki clan. Or how Kanki was able to unite all the bandits to form the Kanki army. Even his relationship with shio felt lacking, as we only see a few pages of them interacting, especially after Ios explanation. We dont see how Mougou was able to recruit Kanki either, which was hyped up considering Kanki was supposed to not know 'fundamental tactics' which Mougou was a master of. We also dont see why Kanki hates the middle class so much, and the root of his hatred before meeting Shio. Dont get me wrong, i loved the parts we were able to see. But I felt like Hara could have devoted alot more to Kankis background considering how intriguing and mysterious he was.

2023.04.02 07:05 No_Hurry4899 How to fix Dewalt DWS780 type 23 XPS light if it is not working. Broken Dewalt XPS light. Dewalt circuit board.

If your DWS 780, type 23 stops working and you try replacing the light and it still doesn’t work. You probably need to replace the switch or the circuitboard. In my case it was the circuitboard. About two months after buying the miter saw from Home Depot I realize the light would not turn on anymore. I replaced the light and still didn’t work. I tested the switch and that wasn’t the problem so I started to look for the circuitboard which I could not find anywhere. I called the Dewalt and told them my problem which even took a while for them to figure out what I was even talking about but once they looked the part up, they said it was back ordered nine months. This was during Covid. They simply didn’t have an answer for me. I was not able to return this to Home depot which I would’ve done in a heartbeat if I was able. Some time went by and I started my search again and still no luck. I couldn’t even find anyone talking about this problem. I couldn’t find a diagram for the type 23 on any websites. So finally, I decided to go on a Ereplacement parts and I ordered the power supply unit for all the other type dws780s along with a new handle just in case. About a week later, I got it in the mail, and to my surprise I was able to take apart the power supply housing and pull the circuitboard out and to my surprise it has all the plugs and wires just like the circuit board in the type 23. The circuitboard looks a little bit different and it doesn’t quite fit in the same slot so I had to get a drillbit and on the right hand side of the slot where the circuitboard goes I just drilled and chipped away a little bit of plastic, so the circuitboard would fit. It took me about 10 seconds to do this very easy. Plugged everything together and it works. Couldn’t be happier after all the research I have done I finally figured it out. So now I have an extra light an extra switch in case I ever need it and a handle that was a waste of money because it cost more to return it, and just keep it. So I hope this helps someone out there that is having the same problem and hopefully you don’t waste time and money like I did. And Dewalt if you still do not have these parts in stock, I hope you tell people they can order the power supply unit and take the circuitboard out. And that you cover this in your warranty. I should’ve had my miter saw XPS light working over a year ago and covered under warranty, but instead, I wasted time and money on parts because you couldn’t fix my problem.
This whole situation with the XPS light system pissed me off, so bad and took up so much of my time trying to find this part and they had the part in stock the whole time maybe it wasn’t meant exactly for my type mitersaw, but I should’ve been told what I could do to fix it. So now I buy only Festool tool and Milwaukee Thank you.

2023.04.02 07:05 No_Increase_3859 Neighbor Situation

So today was a really hard day in general but I can't stop worrying about one social situation with my neighbor and it's triggering a lot of anxiety for me over how bizarre it was.
We have been dealing with groundwater and flooding issues in our crawlspace for the last month or two and it's been extremely physically, mentally, and financially stressful.
My friend recently connected us with someone who could help who was a mutual friend with masonry skills.
He came and helped us the whole day installing a new sump and waterproofing our crawlspace..well. That friend has a dog and I live in a neighborhood with an HOA that restricts the breeds of dogs you can have etc. He brought his dog that is bigger over and probably not in their ownership breed restrictions but just for the day, not even overnight because he was over. In the evening, just a few minutes after 9 we were finishing up the last steps in the crawlspace. He tied the dog up outside for about 10-15 minutes while he did this so she didn't have to be cooped up (she's bigger and a dog that likes to be outside). In that 15 minutes, our neighbor comes over and bangs on the door angrily. When I got upstairs to answer (about 3 minutes later because we were in our crawlspace) he complained that she was howling. Well. I heard literally no howling when I answered the door and I even stood out a few minutes longer to see if she was howling at all...nothing. He said that there were "a lot" of angry neighbors. But I only saw him and also I didn't understand how it could have been bothersome enough if it was only a few minutes to justify coming over (in the dark) to bang on the door.
I have security cameras and I checked them because they pick up noise. No howling noises were picked up at all and it recorded a couple times in that 15 minute window she was outside.
Was this really justified? We immediately went and put the dog somewhere else where the owner thought she wouldn't be likely to howl at all but I was just shocked with how angry he was and how supposedly my whole neighborhood was angry. We are actually really quiet, keep to yourself type neighbors. So the whole thing was really odd to me. We moved to a small town btw, so I'm wondering if this is one of the unfortunate side effects. It seemed like such an over reaction for hearing an animal noise that lasted probably only a couple of minutes and in someone else's yard....
Am I right to think that?

2023.04.02 07:05 awkrawrz forehead shattering migraine

Has anyone else had what I can only describe as a skull shattering migraine after 1 day of ER stims? My specialist has never heard of a reaction like this before and I have everything paused and on hold until I find answers and feel I can safely proceed.
Summary of meds: 300 follistim morning and night Low dose hcg morning Lupron morning
Summary of symptoms: Injected first round of stims in the morning and then my 2nd dose of follistim in the evening
About 1 hour after the 2nd follistim dose, I start getting a headache in my forhead and just tired behind my eyes. I figure I should just go to bed, I'm prolly tired.
Around 5am I wake up with a skull shattering migraine deep behind my forehead. Icing made it worse. Any movement made it worse. I mean, any. Sitting up, rolling over, anything. I felt I couldn't think or see straight. The pain is giving me heart palps. A lil diarrhea followed by throwing up every 10 minutes or so eventually turning g into dry heaving every 30 min. Trying to lay down, breathe and rest in between and drink some ice water which quickly comes back out. My body finally exhausts itself and I fall asleep for an hour. I am in and out of sleep and nausea all day. Stims were immediately stopped. I wake up 6am the next day and migraine transitioned into a more standard version of migraine for me...nausea continues . I wake my husband up to take me to the ER just to make sure my brain hadn't exploded and get hydrated with an IV. Around 10am we get to the ER Catscan clear no aneurysm or anything like and get sent home feeling better having hydrated form an IV and getting a migraine cocktail.
I have ZERO answers as to what caused this. I immediaty stopped stims bc my instinct was it would just get worse or I'd have some kind of aneurysm or some shit. It was terrifying. I've suffered from migraines in the past and these were NOTHING like those.
My only guess is pituitary inflammation/nerve pain in that area. I used to have an adenoma but about 3 years ago I was told it just 'went away'. I have a well treated and well maintained thyroid disorder. I plan to get a brain MRI in another 2 weeks (once I get my period and feel it's safe to do so).
Has anyone has a similar experience or reaction? Did you find out a cause? Were you able to continue EIVF treatments?

2023.04.02 07:05 TuttiFrutti111111 2 different post IDs with stacked social proof?

I duplicated an adset and changed the targeting for the new one. The ad got 70 likes from both adsets, which is great. I'm trying now to create a 3rd adset, but when I go to Select Existing Post, I notice that there are actually 2 different post IDs to choose from, each with their own social proof. One has 55 likes and one has 15. So how come that there are 2 IDs there? After duplicating the initial adset, shouldn't there be only 1 post ID? And is it possible that 2 IDs can stack their social proof? I should also add that both these ads have the same permalink.
One last thing. Now when I'm trying to create a 3rd ad, should I go Select Existing Post and choose the one with 55 likes? Or should I duplicate one of the 2 and and I'll get all 70 likes under the new ad?
This is really confusing, I appreciate any answer that can help clarify this. Thank you!

2023.04.02 07:05 tradclimbergirl Sizing up question and additional question on jewelry material.

I have two questions that don’t exactly have direct answers I could find easily. I know when you size up it’s best to wait a certain length of time. I have read the pinned post and have a good idea on it. My question I guess is I ordered a half size up (7g/3.5mm) since I was having trouble going from 8 straight to 6. Would I still have to wait the standard length of time or is shortened since I’m not going up in size as drastically?
My second question is in regards to earring materials. I know as you’re stretching it’s best to use glass. After a couple months staying at the same size does it matter what material the earrings are made from at that point?

2023.04.02 07:05 Sihan5426 Exposing local Ivy feeder schools

So I live in Philadelphia, the city where UPenn (an Ivy League) is located and I wanted to write this because I feel like this is definitely a hidden away obscure thing that most people who don't live here or go to one of the big feeder magnet schools in Philly fully grasp. Like I'm sure most people know what a feeder school to an Ivy is and that it exists, but I really don't think people fully understand it and everything that goes on unless you are actually from here.
I go to a Philadelphia public magnet school and Im pretty sure itd be considered a feeder school to Penn. Every year, about 30-70 students go to Penn. Every year. Last year, about 50 students ended up going. In like 2016, 68 students got in. Another school in Philly with about 100 students per grade sends about 20 every year. And I want to preface this by saying everyone who got in worked really hard and is smart and deserves it. But if I'm being honest.... I don't think some people would have gotten into a 6% acceptance rate school like Penn had they not had the high school´s name and connections to Penn by living in Philly. Simply bc there would be no advantages and it would all come down to luck/competition.
Guarantees for Penn exist in Philly. Yes, not everyone gets in, but guarantees for an Ivy League are most certainly a thing here, trust me. Im writing this bc people think its a crapshoot when its really not as crapshoot-y as you might think. Not here at least.
You see, what a lot of people don't know is that Penn is REQUIRED to accept a certain number of students from Philadelphia. I think its because of some sort of agreement with Philadelphia for letting Penn use their land??? not too sure. But Penn knows the local high schools. There are a ton of connections to Penn just because its in the same city.
I know kids from my school who have gotten Cs, kids who didn't submit SAT scores because they got a 1200, kids who didn't have perfect grades and had a bunch of Bs. Kids who take a bunch of regular classes and not the most challenging schedule possible. Maybe have around 5-6 APs (which is nowhere near the greatest amount you can take at my school). Kids who have maybe 1 or 2 good ECs and then everything else on their application are just random activities or are ¨mediocre¨ by Ivy standards. For example, I know someone who was captain of two varsity sports teams, which is amazing. I also know someone who was president of a club. But that was literally all they really put on their application. And every single one of them got in.
Now don't get me wrong, I really don't want this to seem like I'm making fun of these kids for ¨not being good enough¨ or smth. They are all hardworking and smart. If you think I'm looking down on these kids, that's not what I'm saying.
What I am saying is that I know there are a ton of kids out there who took 14 APs, all As, 1560 SAT, was president of 4 clubs, had two internships, did 200 hours of community service, captain of the tennis team, and founder of a business. And they were all rejected from Penn while kids from my school with half of that and had worse grades/way less APs got in. And again, I do believe the kids from my school are smart and hardworking... but they do get an advantage being Philadelphia students.
Circling back to my bolded point, this creates this sort of weird culture/vibe when it comes to college admissions season here. Kids here know that as long as you have good grades (doesn't even have to be straight As), a few APs, president/leader of a few clubs, maybe an internship here and there, and community service... you are pretty much guaranteed for Penn. Especially if you apply ED. Every single class president from my school in the past few years has gotten into Penn, every single member of Science Olympiad, and every single Editor-in-Chief. NOW IM NOT SAYING ALL STUDENTS GET IN bc people definitely still get rejected... but while kids from other schools are saying its a crapshoot for Penn, there are some kids here where you can call them a guarantee.
Forget college admissions even. There are a ton of summer programs/dual enrollment programs at Penn that are completely free for Philly public school students ONLY while everyone else had to pay like 9,000 dollars. Penn does have internships/paid programs/research opportunities only open to School District of Philadelphia students. And ofc the people who work at Penn and are professors at Penn... their children have to go to school somewhere in Philly, right? Tons of Penn legacies/children of Penn faculty in Philly schools ofc. There are Penn scholarships only for Philly kids. You see, advantages left and right.
I write this because I see those articles that list out the schools that send the most kids to Ivys like Penn. They be like ¨Horace Mann sent 12 to Penn!¨ or ¨xyz school sent 19 kids to Penn over the past few years¨. That doesn't even come close to the amount Philly schools send but no Philly schools are mentioned in the article. I also saw smth on Quora a while back where a question was like ¨Do Philadelphia high school students have an advantage to Penn¨ and the answers were like ¨No, there are no advantages¨. That is NOT true in the slightest. This makes me wonder if this is like a hidden thing that people from Philly arent aware of. People like know feeder schools exist but arent aware of the extent of it all.

Dan Koe – Digital Economics Masters Degree


What You Get

Phase 0) Digital Economics 101

The Digital Economics 101 module will open 1 week prior to the cohort start date.This is an onboarding module that will get you up to speed so we can get straight into the material.This will be required to finish before the start date.
  • Gain a deep understanding of all of the pieces in the digital economy.
  • Learn about the future of media and code — the front-end and backend of the internet — so you can focus your efforts.
  • Understand digital leverage, distribution, no-code tools, and digital assets so you can take part in the mental & financial wealth transfer.

Phase 1) Creating A Meaningful Niche

Every day I hear people going on and on about trying to find their niche.I also hear people talking about how they don’t know how to combine what they love talking about with what will sell.You already have the answer. You just don’t have the clarity.
  • Develop a long-term strategy to create your own niche — meaning you don’t have to worry about your “competition” playing status games.
  • Discover your life’s work, curiosities, and obsessions. I see too many people that are uncertain about this for years.
  • Cultivate and turn your vision, goals, and values into a brand that attracts an audience you love interacting with (and that will buy from you, and only you).

Phase 2) Content Strategy

There is one thing that separates those who make it in the digital economy and those who don’t.It’s the quality, articulation, and perceived originality of their content.The content you post has to make sense to the people you attract.Everyone has a different voice and tone that they resonate with. That they are congruent with and trust.It has to change their thought patterns or behavior — that’s what makes you memorable.That’s what separates you from the sea of people posting surface-level copy-cat style posts.Example and putting my money where my mouth is:
  • Become an expert-level speaker or writer on the topics you care about.
  • Never run out of content ideas for your posts or promotions (without using content templates — that’s how you stay a commodity).
  • Create posts, blogs, tweets, images, and videos that resonate with other’s on a deep level. People will actually ask you how you got so good at what you do.
  • Separate yourself from the ocean of B-tier creators that struggle to sell their products, services, andhave their ideas stick in the head of their audience.
  • Implement our Epistemic Research Method — which is just a fancy way of saying scientific research method… but it’s for researching your mind to craft brilliant content and product ideas.

Phase 3) Crafting Your Offer

Most people are sitting on a goldmine of skills, experience, and knowledge (that they can use to help people 1-2 steps behind them).That is what people pay for.Considering 95% of the market are beginners… if you are good at something, you can help them get to your level (no matter how “basic” you think the information is).Do you not watch basic content all day anyway? People don’t want new information, they want to be reminded of what works.
  • Use our Minimum Viable Offer strategy to start monetizing immediately (and have something to improve over time, rather than procrastinating until it’s perfect).
  • Have a strategy for reducing the time you spend working over time (as you build leverage and improve your offer).
  • Know how to create your own customers from the audience you are building, instead of “finding” the right customer for your offer.
  • Take the guesswork out of building coaching, consulting, or digital product offers.

Phase 4) Marketing Strategy

You aren’t making money because you aren’t promoting yourself or your offer.That is literally the only way to make money. Have something desirable and consistently put it in front of peoples’ faces.In Phase 4, I will show you how to systemize, automate, and be consistent with simple promotions.You will be able to make money without having the chance of forgetting to do it (or letting fear of failure get in the way).
  • Learn to sell on social media, in your writing, and across different platforms.
  • Have consistent sales coming in while focusing on your meaningful message (no need to sound salesy all the time).
  • Learn advanced automation strategies that you can implement at your own pace, especially once you validate your offer.

Bonus) The Creator Command Center

The Creator Command Center is a Notion template that houses all of the systems.This is how you will manage your brand, content, offer creation, marketing strategy, and systemized promotions for consistent sales.

Bonus) Live Product Build & Launch

In the first Digital Economics Cohort, I built out my course The 2 Hour Writer.I have videos showing how I build it with the strategies in phase 3 and 4.There is a bonus module that shows how I had an $85,000 launch that resulted in my first $100K month.I did this to prove the strategies inside Digital Economics work if you stick to the plan.And, this past Black Friday, I blew my that monthly high out of the water in 4 days.That’s the power of these strategies if you stay consistent with your life’s work.

2023.04.02 07:04 random_female_poster How dining end my relationship if 6 years? Bf has now idea and I'm a coward.

Reddit, I need help.
I've been with my bf for 6 years, and it's been great. We've shared international trips, travelled heaps of cool places, we live together, spend pretty much all our time together (except when I'm at work during the day) and he treats me really well.
I'm going insane. I love him, he is a great person, I want good things for him, but I want out.
And I don't know how. I don't really have a reason except that I've never had a chance to be alone since I was 21. I've been in one previous long term relationship before this (8years) and the day after i three my ex out, I called bf (not bf at the time) for weed. He was my dealer for years and we always had a connection, so when ex was gone, bf confessed his feelings the next day and off we went. I'm now 35 and have just started feeling I want some time to myself.
Bf thinks everything is fine, he us not financially stable, he is not the strongest mentally and i feel if I just announced I'm ending it, he would go fucking mental. It would ruin his current life completely, and I just can't do that.
I need advice, how can I move towards ending things without hurting him too much? We spend all our time together, literally 24/7, so this would end everything as we know it. Plus there is a housing crisis so hardly any accommodation and it's all way too expensive for him.
Any input would help, how do I do this? I'm such a coward... I'll answer any questions truthfully, I have nothing to lose. Full confession, I have started a long distance online bdsm relationship in the last week. Never done anything like this before and I know it makes me a horrible cheater. I feel awful and this is why I'm here. Please help me.
TL;DR I need to break up with my long term bf but don't know how to. He has no idea how I feel. I'm gutless.

2023.04.02 07:04 AutoModerator We’ve fixed our fix

If you visited our sub yesterday, you’ll know that we launched our new ChatGPT infused Automoderator (aka. ‘DirectGPT’) to answer any questions.
We saw you all enjoyed our 1st April launch to varying degrees, yet we think we all have come to an understanding that humans are better at answering questions - for now!
Given this, we’ve made the decision to retire the DirectGPT bot until further notice, and will continue to rely on helpful *human* subscribers to answer questions from tourists, expats and locals who should know better. As mods, we’ll continue to push more & more questions to the Weekly Question Thread.
This is a great moment to remember that for both sides, visitor and local, the human element is what makes Amsterdam worthwhile. We’re always working on how to find the right balance. Thank you all for making this place worthwhile!
On that note, we are very grateful for all the mod application responses received so far from humans. We’ll be reviewing them over the course of the next few weeks. There’s still time to apply, so just to recap: we’re looking for people **(a)** to help us approve/confirm removal of new posts (to keep silly questions from clogging up the sub-reddit) and **(b)** restart the (bi-)monthly meetups, as they were a great success in the past.
Thanks again to all who joined in the fun yesterday & apologies to those who our bot frustrated the heck out of.
