2023.06.09 15:38 Accomplished_Ad_6638 Republic of China Armed Forces Insignias
Hello, dear members of taiwan
My name is Nebojša, and I am an 18-year-old student from the Republic of Srpska, Bosnia and Herzegovina. As a member of a military family, my passion for anything military-related is huge, and a about a year ago, I started collecting military insignias from different nations' armed forces.
Since I began collecting, I have reached out to armed forces around the world via email, but unfortunately, I have received responses from only a handful of nations and some kind Redditors. Despite my efforts, my collection is still quite small, and my goal is to have at least one insignia from as many nations as possible.
I sent an email to the MoD and the MoI in August of 2022 but did not receive a response. So, I am reaching out to the taiwan
community to see if anyone who has served or is currently serving in the Armed Forces or Police that would be willing to help me add to my collection by sending me a patch.
I would greatly appreciate any help that you could offer, and I am happy to provide a photo of my collection upon request. Thank you for taking the time to read my post, and I hope to hear from some of you soon.

2023.06.09 15:38 foxlover93 Problems with Jabra 65T Active
I've loved my Jabra 65T's since I got them, but recently I've been running into problems
My headset could be in the case for hours or days, and it never seems to have a 100% charge. As an example I pulled them out yesterday and it said "Low Battery", showing 10-20%, even though it's been charging. I tried resetting my case, I've cleaned my headphone ports pretty well imo (perhaps I need to be more thorough). Originally, I thought it was cause the case wasn't staying completely closed? I could push on the lid and it would close just a bit more so I wrapped my case up with elastic bands to try and keep a good connection on the charge ports. I bought these headphones in and around when the 75T's were announced
I've had my headphones plugged in at one point for well over 2H+ and it still showed a slow green blink saying its charging but it doesn't seem to hold a charge? Or perhaps my case isn't able to charge my headphones anymore? Looking for any aid/advice to troubleshoot the issue. I'd love to keep these but it might be time to upgrade =<

2023.06.09 15:36 TheDogDad1000 Sleep Procrastination
My biiiiiggest issue / problem with ADHD right now, which is making my life really difficult - is sleep procrastination.
I'll be sooo tired during the day - or in the evening - and i'll tell myself "I'm going to bed early today !".
Then, at 10 PM, I tell myself "OK time to go to bed".... followed by a "ok, let me just sit down for another second here and cuddle with the dog".... hm... "okay, i'm going to watch a Youtube video - just one".... or "Oh, let me look up something on Reddit".... then, getting sucked into a rabbit hole - and then all of a sudden it's 1:30 AM - and i'm still not in bed !!!
I don't have any difficulty falling a sleep once I get to bed - but I just can't get myself to go to my room, put down my phone, and just turn off the light.
Any tips ? Any suggestions ? Any Solutions ?

I'm on a budget and just looking for something to run some games at low settings like apex or City skylines. I had to sell my PC so I have to get a laptop because I will be travelling a lot. I see many gaming laptops without a dedicated gpu. Is this any good? I've seen some second hand ones with let's day a gtx 960 in it although it's outdated would that run better than integrated graphicz

2023.06.09 15:35 Foreign_Collection_5 NEED LOTS OF HELP
Hi guys, I’m new to 3D printing and just received my ender 3 and every video I’ve googled is almost like a science equation. I didn’t realize that owning this required 14 years of rocket science engineering.
Anyways, I barely put this thing together- and I bought a CR Touch Auto Leveling Kit, but based on the videos I see, everyone is talking about doing a “z offset” before even leveling the bed. Problem is, only videos I’m finding for this is for the ender pro, and other versions. I only have the basic ender 3, and there is one video but the guy says “oh I have a video dedicated to the z offset in my link” which conveniently he does on the ender pro…
Can I just get help setting this thing up, you have NO idea how frustrated these last 3 days have been putting this thing together.
Edit: I was able to print like 5 things before I ran into a big issue that has put a COMPLETE hold on printing. Every time it starts printing now, the z offset is off again, the nozzle is digging into the plate, even after I’ve tried the “paper trick” 45 times. And also, it sounds like it’s breaking every time the plate moves with a specific “clicking noise” tbh, do I get rid of it at this point?

2023.06.09 15:35 Lanky-Ad-266 AITA for Starting a Pizza Shop, Hiring My Neighbor's Teenage Son, and Refusing to Meet His Mom's Wage Demands?
Hello Reddit! I have a situation to share with you all and I'd love some perspective.
I'm a 32-year-old man who decided to leave my stressful corporate job to follow my dream of cooking. I opened a pizza shop in our local town, with my supportive gf (29F) backing me all the way.
Our neighbors have a son, 'John' (16M), a hardworking, polite teenager who has shown a keen interest in the restaurant business. Recognizing this, I offered him a part-time job at my shop. John was excited about the opportunity and his dad (44M) gave his consent.
But things got complicated with John's mom, who we'll call 'Karen' (42F). Karen felt that John's pay was unfairly low because he's a teenager, even though he's doing less complex tasks and learning a lot on the job. She argued that because I'm making a profit off his labor, he should be paid as much as an adult. I tried to explain to her that this is a standard wage for a first job, and the experience John is gaining is incredibly valuable. John seemed content with this arrangement.
Karen, however, wasn't satisfied. One day, during a rush, she stormed into my shop, demanding I increase John's pay or she would report me for exploitation. I stood my ground, telling her that if she didn't agree with the pay, John didn't need to continue working at my shop. This left John upset because he genuinely enjoys the job and the learning experience.
So Reddit, am I the antagonist for hiring my neighbor's son at my pizza shop and refusing to meet his mother's wage demands?

2023.06.09 15:35 haberdashcollect State of VTuber World - Supplementary Thoughts for Early June 2023
This... was the first time I hit the character limit on a post. Was it always 10,000 characters? I thought it was more like 25,000... Huh, I guess API break coming in many different ways.
Anyways, I had some thought I wanted to append, but I can't, so I'll do so here.
I mean, if this keeps up, I might need to check this into a weekly post. I don't know if I have enough gas to make this weekly, though. We'll see. Maybe during Koshien, I can test a weekly post.
Debut Thoughts Pt. 2
- IdolEN Endless - It was an endless wait, indeed. But considering Aviel's words, having the pre-debut period go from 2 weeks to 5 days was a good move. I think pre-debut should get shorter as your agency matures (HoloX debut was a masterpiece) and idol has matured plenty (not the talents, they did not mature at all). Speaking of maturity, seeing the debut PV reminded me of U149 and I couldn't quite get over my western squick at 'gaggles of young girls in entertainment' thing. ESekai had Rin and Juna, so it had an all-ages appeal, but all of Endless looks like ten. And considering ESekai, they might probably act like ten as well. I mean they seem like fine talents otherwise.

2023.06.09 15:33 gusherpie AITA for being disappointed that a promised birthday gift made me feel there was a lack of planning?
It’s my birthday next Tuesday. I don’t really care about birthdays, but I did plan to get myself a gift. My birthday is on the 13th and Diablo 4 released on the 6th, my husband has been very excited and he planned that we would spend the release at our friends for like 4 days. We’ve made jokes that I’m just not having a birthday this year. Since I was already taking time off and we were hanging with our friends anyway, I was going to just consider this any birthday plans. Our friends are a couple and really love legos, so I was going to purchase the Razorcrest (a $600 set very expensive not gonna lie) on Affirm so I could build legos with my friend while my husband and his friend played the game. I had mentioned this a couple of times to my husband.
So once it got close to the weekend my husband didn’t think this was a good idea because it would be hard to transport back and forth (we also had to bring his PC to the friends house). When I mentioned that I’ve mentioned this before he said it was too expensive and we couldn’t afford it. Finally he told me he was planning on getting it for me the next weekend so I could spend the weekend at home building it. He played it up as this big thing he was planning, and said “Wow did you really think I wasn’t going planning everything for your birthday?” Since it’s expensive I assumed he had saved up and was really excited he would get such an expensive gift for me and I asked him multiple times if he was sure.
So now the Thursday before the Friday we were supposed to go pick it up we were talking about it and somehow the price came up and he said how he didn’t know how much that cost and that we can’t afford that. At this point this has been built up so much that I was really disappointed and frustrated that he made it seem like he planned this big surprise but didn’t look up the price? When I said that he basically glossed past it and called me an asshole for making him feel like a “chump” for not having the money and that he couldn’t provide for me. He works a physical job and works very hard. I immediately got defensive that he would think I thought that way. The only thing I was upset about was that he made it seem like he planned this and he didn’t. I understand now that would be too expensive to purchase all at once, and I’m not that kind of person to expect someone to provide for me. When I clarified that he just glossed right past that and said I was upset he didn’t have the money and was being a brat for being upset about not getting the present. Accountability is something we fight about a lot, i get a lot of “I’m sorry but…”. I understand that I probably shouldn’t have gotten upset, but when he made it seem like I was pissed at him for not providing made me feel like he was turning the whole thing on me and I wasn’t allowed to be disappointed he didn’t do a simple google search. AITA?

2023.06.09 15:33 Darneac Beliefs v5
God is a trinity
God the father God the son God the holy spirit
God the father:
Genesis 1:26 / Then God said, “Let us make mankind in our image, in our likeness, so that they may rule over the fish in the sea and the birds in the sky, over the livestock and all the wild animals, and over all the creatures that move along the ground.
John 14:28 / You have heard Me say to you, ‘I (Jesus) am going away and coming back to you.’ If you loved Me, you would rejoice because I said, ‘I am going to the Father,’ for My Father is greater than I.
Matthew 24:36 / But of that day and hour no one knows, not even the angels of heaven, but My Father only.
God the holy spirit:
Genesis 1:2 / The earth was without form, and void; and darkness was on the face of the deep. And the Spirit of God was hovering over the face of the waters.
John 14:26 / But the Advocate, the Holy Spirit, whom the Father will send in My name, will teach you all things and will remind you of everything I have told you.
John 16:13 / However, when He, the Spirit of truth, has come, He will guide you into all truth; for He will not speak on His own authority, but whatever He hears He will speak; and He will tell you things to come.
God the Son:
John 1:2-5 / In the beginning was the Word, and the Word was with God, and the Word was God. He was in the beginning with God. All things were made through Him, and without Him nothing was made that was made. In Him was life, and the life was the light of men. And the light shines in the darkness, and the darkness did not comprehend it.
John 1:14 / And the Word became flesh and dwelt among us, and we beheld His glory, the glory as of the only begotten of the Father, full of grace and truth
John 8:58 / Jesus said to them, “Most assuredly, I say to you, before Abraham was, I AM.”
Revelation 1:18 / I am He who lives, and was dead, and behold, I am alive forevermore. Amen. And I have the keys of Hades and of Death.
God is good:
1 Chronicles 16:34 / Oh, give thanks to the Lord, for He is good! For His mercy endures forever.
God is holy:
Psalm 97:12 / Be glad in the Lord, you righteous ones, And give thanks to His holy name.
John 3:16 / For God so loved the world that He gave His only begotten Son, that whoever believes in Him should not perish but have everlasting life.
2 Corinthians 5:10 / For we must all appear before the judgment seat of Christ, that each one may receive the things done in the body, according to what he has done, whether good or bad.
God is righteous:
Psalm 119:137 / Righteous are You, O Lord, and upright are Your judgments.
How to enter heaven:
- Believe in the trinity
- Believe Jesus Christ died for your sins on the cross
- Believe Jesus Christ was raised from the dead 3 days later
- Do not follow your own desires
- Put on the armour of God
- Resist the devil and he will flee
- Follow God's commandments
- Repent of your sins
- Pray to God
- Ask for forgiveness from God
1 John 2:3-6 / When we obey God, we are sure we know him. But if we claim to know him and don't obey him, we are lying and the truth isn't in our hearts. We truly love God only when we obey him as we should, and then we know we belong to him. If we say we are his, we must follow the example of Christ.
We are all sinners but through Jesus we can find everlasting life.
Repent and turn from your old ways. Sin escalates and gets worse without regret.
Sin is not allowed in heaven so bind and resist sin on earth.
Matthew 18:18 / I assure you and most solemnly say to you, whatever you bind [forbid, declare to be improper and unlawful] on earth shall have [already] been bound in heaven, and whatever you loose [permit, declare lawful] on earth shall have [already] been loosed in heaven.
We can receive forgiveness and mercy for our sins through God the son, Jesus Christ our lord and saviour.
Forgiveness is available to everyone, even those who have made the same mistakes many times. However repentance is needed from you. Jesus will show you the right way but you still have a choice to follow or not.
How to resist the devil:
The armor of God represents the defense we must take in our spiritual lives. The Bible tells us that we are fighting a war against Satan, who seeks to destroy us. Therefore, we must take action and put on God's armor. As Christians, it is important for us to understand the severity of this battle.
Armor of God
- the belt of truth - honesty
- the breastplate of righteousness - do the right thing
- the shoes of the gospel of peace - remain calm and collected
- the shield of faith - trust God
- the helmet of salvation - accept Jesus Christ is my lord and savior.
- The sword of the Spirit - use and know the word of God
GOOD FRUITS OF THE SPIRIT:
Galatians 5:22-23 / But the fruit of the Spirit is love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness, self-control; against such things there is no law.
Matthew 6:14 / For if you forgive men their trespasses, your heavenly Father will also forgive you. But if you don't forgive men their trespasses, neither will your Father forgive your trespasses.
Luke 6:36-38 / Therefore be merciful, just as your Father also is merciful. “Judge not, and you shall not be judged. Condemn not, and you shall not be condemned. Forgive, and you will be forgiven. Give, and it will be given to you: good measure, pressed down, shaken together, and running over will be put into your bosom. For with the same measure that you use, it will be measured back to you.
Matthew 22:37-39 / Jesus says, “You shall love the Lord, your God, with all your heart, with all your soul, and with all your mind. This is the greatest and the first commandment. The second is like it: You shall love your neighbor as yourself.
1 Peter 4:8 / And above all things have fervent love for one another, for “love will cover a multitude of sins
John 14:21 / Whoever has My commandments and keeps them is the one who loves Me. The one who loves Me will be loved by My Father, and I will love him and reveal Myself to him.”
The 10 Commandments:
- You shall have no other God's before me.
- Thou shalt not make unto thee any graven images.
- Thou shalt not take the name of the Lord thy God in vain.
- Remember the Sabbath day and keep it Holy.
- Honor your father and mother.
- Thou shalt not kill.
- Thou shalt not commit adultery.
- Thou shalt not steal.
- Thou shall not bear false witness.
- You shall not covet.
The seven deadly sins are:
Proverbs 6:16-19 / These six things doth the Lord hate: yea, seven are an abomination unto him: A proud look, a lying tongue, and hands that shed innocent blood, An heart that deviseth wicked imaginations, feet that be swift in running to mischief, A false witness that speaketh lies, and he that soweth discord among brethren.
Matthew 5:27-28 / You have heard that it was said, ‘You shall not commit adultery.’ But I say to you that everyone who looks at a woman with lustful intent has already committed adultery with her in his heart.
James 4:17 / So whoever knows the right thing to do and fails to do it, for him it is sin
Colossians 3:5-6 / Put to death therefore what is earthly in you: sexual immorality, impurity, passion, evil desire, and covetousness, which is idolatry. On account of these the wrath of God is coming.
Galatians 5:19-21 / Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality, idolatry, sorcery, enmity (hostility), strife (conflict), jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions (disagreement), divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Galatians 5:19-21 / Now the works of the flesh are evident: sexual immorality, impurity, sensuality (sexual pleasure), idolatry, sorcery, enmity (hostility), strife (conflict), jealousy, fits of anger, rivalries, dissensions (disagreements), divisions, envy, drunkenness, orgies, and things like these. I warn you, as I warned you before, that those who do such things will not inherit the kingdom of God.
Any miracles done that is not from God is from the devil. The devil is deceitful and will hide his sorcery in false doctrines. Do not be deceived and be led astray because this is done by the devil to hide the truth.
1 John 3:15 / Everyone who hates his brother is a murderer, and you know that no murderer has eternal life abiding in him.
CONSEQUENCES OF SIN:
James 1:12-16 / Blessed is the man who remains steadfast under trial, for when he has stood the test he will receive the crown of life, which God has promised to those who love him. Let no one say when he is tempted, “I am being tempted by God,” for God cannot be tempted with evil, and he himself tempts no one. But each person is tempted when he is lured and enticed by his own desire. Then desire when it has conceived gives birth to sin, and SIN WHEN IT IS FULLY GROWN BRINGS FORTH DEATH. Do not be deceived, my beloved brothers
Hebrews 3:12-14 / Take care, brothers, lest there be in any of you an EVIL, unbelieving heart, LEADING YOU TO FALL AWAY FROM THE LIVING GOD. But exhort (strongly encourage) one another every day, as long as it is called “today,” that none of you may be HARDENED BY THE DECEITFULNESS OF SIN. For we have come to share in Christ, if indeed we hold our original confidence firm to the end.
1 Peter 3:12 / For the eyes of the Lord are on the righteous, and His ears are open to their prayers but the face of the Lord is against those who do evil.
Matthew 5:30 / And if your right hand causes you to sin, cut it off and cast it from you; for it is more profitable for you that one of your members perish, than for your whole body to be cast into hell.
Proverbs 9:10 - The fear of the LORD is the beginning of wisdom, And the knowledge of the Holy One is understanding.
SAVED BY FAITH:
Matthew 7:21-23 / Not everyone who says to Me, ‘Lord, Lord,’ will enter the kingdom of heaven, but only he who does the will of My Father in heaven. Many will say to Me on that day, ‘Lord, Lord, did we not prophesy in Your name, and in Your name drive out demons and perform many miracles?’ Then I will tell them plainly, ‘I never knew you; depart from Me, you workers of lawlessness!’
Ephesians 2:8 -10 = For by grace you are saved through faith, and this is not from yourselves, it is the gift of God; not by works, so that no one can boast. For we are his workmanship, having been created in Christ Jesus for good works that God prepared beforehand SO WE MAY DO THEM.
James 2:17 = So too, faith by itself, if it does not result in action, is dead
James 2:21-22 / Was not our father Abraham justified by what he did when he offered his son Isaac on the altar? You see that his faith was working with his actions, and his faith was perfected by what he did.
My conclusion on faith:
We are saved by faith in the trinity. Works are there to strengthen your faith. Sin weakens your faith until it dies.
Reasons for evil:
Isaiah 45:7 / I form the light and create darkness, I make peace and create calamity; I, the Lord, do all these things
You have free will to choose to be good or evil. God allows you to choose even if he knows what you will choose. If he doesn't allow evil people to exist he cannot give free will to man or he cannot let man be created. If man has no free will then we can no longer call ourselves human being as we would be something else. If we are not created by God he cannot save his lost sheep born into a world of good and evil where the ground is cured and weeds grow amongst the wheat.
Hell was created for the fallen angels but also because evil people exist. Evil people cannot escape justice so God created a place of torment for them. This place is for people who disobey God and refuse to serve him.
Matthew 13: 37-39 / He answered and said unto them, He that soweth the good seed is the Son of man; The field is the world; the good seed are the children of the kingdom; but the tares are the children of the wicked one; The enemy that sowed them is the devil; the harvest is the end of the world; and the reapers are the angels.
God needs cursed ground to sow the seeds of sinners. God has rules which he also follows, he does not just do as he wants. The devil can sow his own seeds as well. The devil's seeds/children can also be saved.
Zechariah 3 1-4 = Then he showed me Joshua the high priest standing before the angel of the LORD, and Satan standing at his right side to accuse him. The LORD said to Satan, "The LORD rebuke you, Satan! The LORD, who has chosen Jerusalem, rebuke you! Is not this man a burning stick snatched from the fire?" Now Joshua was dressed in filthy clothes as he stood before the angel. The angel said to those who were standing before him, "Take off his filthy clothes." Then he said to Joshua, "See, I have taken away your sin, and I will put rich garments on you."
The devil is making mistakes as you can see from the verse above. Weeds can also be saved.
These sinners can be saved by faith in God the son. We are all black sheep which God is coming to find.
The reason for life:
You have free will but God also told you not to sin. Therefore you can ignore God's will and do as you please or you can obey God and do his will.
When you die or come to the end of your life on earth God will tell you who you are. Only God can define you. God loves you and wants to bless you too. Your blessings depends on what you did during your life on earth.
The bible is God's word.
2 Timothy 3:16-17 / All Scripture is breathed out by God and profitable for teaching, for reproof, for correction, and for training in righteousness, that the man of God may be complete, equipped for every good work.

2023.06.09 15:33 chappelles Wifi internet speed slowed down
I have a very old internet plan of 15mb and just upgraded to a fiber optic internet at the speed of 1000mb, the technician will be here next week to set it up so i'm still on my old internet.
To prepare for the plan I bought yesterday a media converter (that box you need for fiber internet) and a new wifi usb stick with antenna for the higher speeds. Unplugged my old one, plugged the new one, worked fine for the rest of the day.
Today my internet was crawling, ran a speed test and it was 1mb instead of the usual 15. Tried to plug the old usb wifi stick - speed was 6. Tried uninstalling the old usb stick from device manager and plugging back the new one - speed is around 4-5. Did multiple resets in between all of these and checked the new antenna has the drivers up to date. Another computer in the same household that connects to the same router and wifi has a normal speed of 15.

2023.06.09 15:33 Atomicblonde So you want to import a horse (tales from a first timer)
For context: I am based on the US, ride dressage and work with a trainer who has imported numerous horses, so I was pretty well prepped on what to expect. Nothing was bad or crazy about this experience, I just feel like this might help others out there.
Finding an agent: Most likely if you are working with an experienced trainer, they will have contact info for an agent in Europe. If not, always ask how the agent is compensated. Some go on % of the price you pay on the horse, but others go on a fixed cost model (fee + travel expenses like hotels, food, rental car). Personally, I prefer the fixed cost model, but to each their own. Make sure you are clear with the agent about your price range and know that they typically work in euros - so if your budget is in USD or your local currency, do yourself a favor and make the conversion ahead of time. Also remember that that conversion changes regularly and, when you're talking in 5-6 figure budgets, you will notice those differences. Also be clear about any deal breakers. If you are staying in one general area, you probably need 4 days or so. Give yourself more time than you think you need (explained in etiquette section)
Booking the trip: Chances are, if you want to be able to view video ahead of your trip, you will not get a long lead time between booking and going. Obviously flights can be cheaper if you book well ahead of time, but sellers can only hold horses for so long. Some are quite accommodating and will hold for a week or 2, but remember that this is an inherent cost on their end. Also, when it comes to hotels and such, trust that your agent knows the best places to stay. A good agent will know small, nearby places that are typically less expensive and closer to the barns.
Etiquette: Shopping in Europe is quite differently paced than shopping in the US. For example, when you arrive, they will typically sit you down and have some coffee, maybe tell you about the stables, etc. It's friendly, welcoming and shouldn't be rushed through - even if you are dead-set on seeing a lot of horses on your trip. Great barns want to know that their horses are going to the right homes. When it comes to trying the horse, however, the timing aspect is sort of reversed. The moment you know this is not the horse for you, even if you haven't gotten on, you can say that you would like to pass. They will be glad you haven't wasted their time and will not be annoyed (I tend to find that such a terse interaction in the US would be considered rude - that doesn't apply at these barns that are getting in people regularly from around the world). Just as an aside, the horses will always be fully braided and turned out as if they are headed to a show. I honestly think that that presentation (and the offering of a drink or coffee) are very inexpensive ways that US sellers could heighten their game. But I digress.
Vetting: At least in Germany, it is federal law that the seller provide a standard set of 18 x-rays at their expense. I think it's feet (not skyline view), hocks, and stifles. Any additional x-rays can be purchased at your cost and they are generally quite a bit cheaper than in the US (because vets are doing x-rays regularly). So, for example, I added back and neck and the clinic charged me 250 euro. I vetted 2 horses and the sellers actually paid for both clinical vettings because, by their explanation, I was the first to vet both horses and it was easier for them to pay for it and then own the vetting if I decided to pass so they could keep it on file. (Obviously I was given the reports first so it's not like I had to get the reports through the sellers and worry about tampering or whatever)
Price negotiations: Aside from a language barrier and having a guide through the country, this is where a good agent can be key. This is a lot like it is in the US (prices can change based on vet findings, etc), but having a native speaker is very helpful. Also be aware (if this matters to you) if the seller works on a "coupon system". Essentially, some really big sale barns will tell you "if you don't like the horse, you can exchange it for another of equal value in such and such length of time". I'm honestly not sure if I find this good or bad, it's just sort of how it works. These barns have so many horses, it becomes easier to basically give you "store credit" to buy a different horse than give back your money. Oh, because I forgot to mention: European laws protect the consumer far more than the US (which does basically nothing in the case of horses). You have 2 years to return a horse, even if the horse was properly represented and it just didn't work out.
Import: Depending on where you fly into, it's safe to say that you will need to allocate $7500-$12k to import. Geldings only require 2-3 days of quarantine (depending on the time it takes to get bloodwork done), so that is why they are the most popular for import. Mares have to stay in quarantine for 3 weeks (I think that's right? Feel free to correct me anyone who has experience with this). If you are importing a stallion, I believe they are also 3 weeks AND they are required to breed to 2 mares during that time (it's flushed, no foal) to ensure they don't have equine STD's. Obviously since this is quite a hassle, only certain quarantine barns will accept stallions and I'm sure the import cost is far beyond what I have estimated above. Also, a pallet of horses (yup, they call them pallets) has 3 stalls and they will not fly the horses if the pallet is not filled. (Yeah, no extra leg room situations)
Ok, this was pretty long, but I'm sure I've missed something. If anyone has questions, please ask! I hope this was interesting and/or helpful.

2023.06.09 15:33 Particular_Break9989 How to encourage longer naps?
My wife has been pulling her hair out during the day with our 5 month old only napping for 30 minute stretches, and only getting in 3 naps a day.
The only way we can get longer is if someone co-sleeps with him, or we put him in a carrier.
We've tried extending wake windows to 2-3 hours, tried sticking to a tight sleep amd feed schedule, but so far there's no change.
At night he's not as bad, waking every 3 hours instead, and can usually be rocked back to sleep.
Are we stuck with this nap schedule, or does anyone have suggestions?

2023.06.09 15:33 a-h-m-e-d-k The 5 pillars of good revision
| || |Intro submitted by a-h-m-e-d-k to CollegeHomeworkTips [link] [comments]
After years of revising for pointless tests and exams. I have painstakingly derived the 5 pillars which decide how well you perform on exams. Do exams hold meaning anyway? This is a no bs guide to getting A*'s in your exams, or at the very least improving your grades guaranteed... probably. The post is a bit long but it will be time well spent I promise. In each pillar, there are three levels, to get to the next level you need to fulfil all the requirements of the level below it. 5 pillars
Mental and Physical Health
- Mental and Physical Health
- Revision Techniques
Without this, everything falls apart. Feeling burnt out, depressed and struggling to focus is the most detrimental thing to performing well on exams. You might be thinking - 'I do none of this stuff but still perform decently' but performing well on your exams is not more important than taking of yourself.
- You move around the house
- You get 7-8 hours of sleep
- You at least 2 nutritional meals a day
- You go outside daily
- You keep in touch with friends
- You do intense exercise at least once a week
- You stretch daily to take care of your posture
- You still spend time doing hobbies and extracurricular activities
Structuring your revision is key to making sure that you don't feel overwhelmed. Ever gotten round to revising and finding out you have no idea what to revise? Or you know what you have to revise but you don't know what to start with? Then you open YouTube and watch a video on how to study so you feel like you're being productive.
- You have a checklist of what you will get done in your revision session
- You have made a note of what topics will be on the test
- You have gone over your specification, old tests and homeworks and find out the topics you really struggle with. You make an action plan to either get help from your teacher, or your peers, or watch helpful YouTube videos
- Retrospective Revision Timetable. You might already know what retrospective revision timetable means but if you don't, it means looking back on past events. Your average revision timetable (the one you are probably thinking of write now) is absolutely useless. You predict weeks or days into the future what topics you will cover at specifically the time you choose. If you've ever made one, you would have realised it's impossible to follow for more than 3 days. That is because it is impossible to predict what you should revise a few days or weeks into the future. This where the retrospective revision timetable comes in. You write down the topics down the side of a piece of paper or word document and across the top you write the number 1 to 5. Then, every time you spend maybe a 45 minutes or an hour revising a topic you put it into the timetable with the date - first time revising the topic you put it in column 1 etc. This allows you to create a snapshot of what you have and have not covered. That means next time you come to revise you know clearly what you still need to cover. You can also highlight the different boxes in red green or orange to signify how well the session went. Now this technique isn't for all tests and is only for the really large mocks or end of year exams
Being able to focus is key. Doing work for long periods of time is an important skill to learn. You've probably already got distracted reading this - haven't you? Focus. Take 5 deep breaths and take stock of your surroundings. Being able to focus will help improve all aspects of your life.
- You keep your phone out of sight
- Caffeine - eh its good but don't overuse it
- You don't have a movie / TV show on in the background while revising
- Cold showers - the feeling of awakeness you get from doing this is crazy. You really feel like you about to start levitating or something. If you ever wake up and feel like death this will literally slap the life back into you. Honestly, 100% worth the effort.
- Tidy Work environment - prevents your mind from feeling cluttered or something like that. Sometimes best to go to the library cos a change in environment can help sometimes
- You keep your phone and all distractions away from your study environment
- You practise mindfulness and meditate regularly
- You listen to either binaural beats, white noise, or relaxing music of your choice
- You take a cocktail of study drugs and ascend from the mortal realm - I'm kidding, don't do this
Contrary to popular belief (I think) it does matter how you revise. Saying you revised for 4 hours by writing out the entire spec doesn't count. What's important is making sure the revision that you do is useful to you.
- You watch videos for understanding - this isn't actually revision but you if you never understood the topic this is a good idea
- You reread your notes - almost always a waste of time when it comes to revision unless there aren't more comprehensive online sources you can learn from You sleep on your textbooks to allow the information to move in via osmosis - a rookie mistake a lot of people make is still leaving the covers on the textbook which is actually quite impermeable
- Exam questions - the holy grail of revising. I highly recommend doing this and writing all the questions you get wrong with their answers into a word document or onto a sheet of paper. Exam technique heavy A-levels e.g. Biology are often looking for specific phrases and specific ways of saying things that you can only learn from doing exam questions
- BLURT - this is where you write down everything you know about a topic then correct it using a textbook or something like that. Quick way to find your misconceptions. You could probably do this as a mind map but the key thing is without notes. This is because it involves 'active recall'. Basically, brain fetch knowledge from memory memory become stronger easy to recall in a test.
“If you can’t explain it simply, you don’t understand it well enough” - some guy Consistency
- You employ the Feynman technique and try to explain topics to your peers or people who know less about it then you. This allows you to gain a deep understanding of a topic. It's like opening a third eye or something. Feynman is where you write down a concept you are trying to learn. You then write about it in plain English so that anyone can understand. You then write about the concept so that a 10 year old can understand the topic. Use a variety of resources to improve your explanation. Then, use diagrams and analogies to make the topic easier to remember.
Cramming the night before a test, if you don't know, is not good for your health. It's not good for you grades either. Staying up till 4am to revise Biology is rarely justified. Remember, 30 minutes a day for a week is better than a 6 hour study session at night where the only thing keeping you awake is caffeine and stress. For larger mocks a couple of days of solid revision is good enough for me but everyone works differently. Find the period of time where you have the time to revise effectively for your exams but it doesn't start to affect other areas of your life badly.
- You start your revision the night before the exam or, even worse, the morning of your exam.
- You do a few cram sessions the days prior
Deciding your level
- You start revising a good couple weeks before important mocks and you slowly ramp up the revision intensity and duration. This only matters for bigger tests - I am still on Level 2 :(
For each pillar decide your level
Level 1: 1 point
Level 2: 2 points
Level 3: 3 points
Add them all up and decide which level you are
0 - 4: 'Academic comeback is real' guy. You believe that one night is all you need. It's alright, we've all been there. The difficulty was in knowing how to get better. But now you know.
5 - 8: Revision Fan. You dabble here and there in productivity. You are improving, but you aren't quite there yet.
9 - 12: Average revision enjoyer. You perform pretty well on tests. You know how to remain healthy while revising.
12 - 15: Revision gigachad. Reality can be whatever you want. You are the one who knocks. Well done, and good luck.
If you are a low level it's alright. I made this post for fun anyways. Just make sure to get all pillars to the same level e.g. get to level 1 on everything before moving to the next level. FAQ
My friend does none of this and still gets the highest grade. The games the game. Genetic advantage is real but it doesn't mean you can't perform as well as them if you put effort in and use the techniques above. https://preview.redd.it/sadqrhcvvz4b1.png?width=752&format=png&auto=webp&s=8b258d9f6bf0ff39bad4061cb15bd8cfcdabd577

2023.06.09 15:32 Alex514efs Entry level in defense?
I’m currently working in defense as a controls tech with an AS degree and also currently enrolled part time in uni for a CS bachelors.
I’m seeing if anyone that’s in the industry(or not) that would be able to point me the right direction of a position where I could gain some light software engineering experience. I wouldn’t mind leaving the industry either if the opportunity is worth it. I’ve been keeping my eyes in other contractors but nothing I’ve seen is applicable for me yet.
Where I am now, it’s not the best spot since I’m not getting any hands on experience at what I want to do.
It’s going to be a while before I’m eligible for an internship so I’d rather change my day job to something related to CS.
Thanks in advance.

2023.06.09 15:32 otropato Cat pooping outside her litter box.
I know this has been answered before but I maybe this particular case is different. Our cat has always been very clean and did all her stuff inside her litter box, except a few times when she could be pissed at something. But from almost 2 months ago now she's only using her litter box for peeing, and only poops next to the outside door. This behavior started after a short trip we did with her and where I let her walk around a little bit (she's an indoor cat). Me and my wife work most days but she never spends more than 8/9 hours by herself, and I take my time for playing with her every time I come back home. She's also very cuddly in the morning and before bedtime. We took her to the vet a couple of times and she's in perfect health. We clean her toilet once a week, and added a second one in a different part of the apartment to see if she would use that one. We took her out again thinking that maybe she wanted to be out and abysome more, but the bad behavior remains and I have no idea what to do anymore. HALP! Thank you in advance!

2023.06.09 15:32 b-sharp-minor Concert Etiquette, or Simple "Rules" for Attending a Concert
People new to classical, or curious about it, often say that they are reluctant to attend a concert because there are too many rules and that they don't know the etiquette. Here is the entirety of classical music etiquette: The most important rule
: Have fun. Enjoy yourself. Forget about the world and immerse yourself in the sound for a couple of hours.
- Get to your seat before the concert starts. You might hear a gong or bell sound in the lobby. This is a signal that you should start heading to your seat. You can also just follow the crowd. Go to the bathroom before you go to your seat (in the rest room, as is customary at concerts).
- Turn off your phone or put it on silent. Keep the phone in your pocket or purse until you go back out to the lobby.
- While the musicians are playing, don't talk or otherwise bother the people around you. (They are probably conducting the orchestra in their minds or writing a hypothetical concert review, so let them have their own headspace.)
- Clap after all of the movements of the entire piece are over. If you don't know the piece, then you can follow along in your program. After the last movement ends clap away. For a little extra pretentiousness, feel free to shout "Bravo!" You will not be the only one, I assure you. (Clapping is not actually required, so don't feel any pressure to take the lead in audience participation.)
That's it. Dress codes aren't a thing anymore although shorts and (for men) sandals are probably not a good look. Dress casual or, if you are having a fancy date night, dress up. It's up to you. Personally, I feel that you can never go wrong with business casual, whatever that is these days.

2023.06.09 15:32 WinstreakisTaken I really hate pickles
I know this is somewhat different to the normal posts here but in many ways just was important.
I have felt trapped in my own mind unable to tell anyone or to just get all this hatred out of me. I really hate pickles, everything they aee and stand for. i dont know if they're political or not and that scares me too. i dont like things i cant understand, and i do not understand pickles. Like what are pickles? Cucumbers? peppers? some other outlandish thing? They go in burgers, they always end up in my fish and chips even when i specifically said "no pickles". They are everywhere and i cant escape them. you go to the shop and oh look some pickles, you go to a resturaunt and oh look that guys got a PICKLE in his burger?! Who decided these green slimey freaks of a presumed vegitable are something we need in day to day life. They serve no purpose. and dont get me started on how people are calling me weird for not liking pickles, i know not many humans share my hatred for these pickles but just look at other things that arent human. ever seen a cat get scared of a pickle? yeah, alot have and its clearly because cats are way smarter than us and clearly know that pickles are obviously a key factor in the ultimate ending of society. i seriously do not like nor trust any pickles. they are foul and deserve to be rid of this earth. And i am coming for them, im coming for all the pickles and all the pickle enjoyers, anybody associating with pickles will be in my list of targets. I'm gonna make pickles as extinct as the night furies. I will succeed in my fight against pickles, no matter the cost.
Thank you reddit, for letting me vent my severe buildup of hatred. :)
