Guide to Synthetic Fude (Cruelty-Free, Vegan Makeup Brushes)

Guide to Synthetic Fude by vandalimism

All links are non-affiliated and are included for citing references.
I created this guide because I couldn’t find a comprehensive overview of synthetic fude (which refers to, in this context, artisanal makeup brushes)—a proper niche within a niche. Thus, I have compiled a list of makeup brush lines that are from OEMs (Original Equipment Manufacturers make products for other brands) and are 100% synthetic. The consensus is that synthetics are for liquids/creams, while animal hairs are for powders. Brush lines with natural and synthetic fibers typically reserve a pure or blended mix of synthetic fibers for lip, eyeliner, eyebrow, and liquid/cream face brushes. Consequently, drugstore synthetic brushes may be satisfactory for these use cases. However, the smoothness and stiffness of synthetic fibers result in poor performance with powder cosmetics and scratchiness on a sensitive face respectively. By exploring a selection of fude that use the latest synthetic fiber technology, I intend to guide readers seeking a better experience from their current synthetic brushes. In addition, I hope to see more fude enthusiasts create posts or videos dedicated to reviewing their synthetic fude collection since there’s a lack of such content on the internet.
Information from My Blush Betty, Jackson's Art, Kingyin, etc. is used as preliminary research on synthetic makeup brushes' history and current landscape. The lack of cuticles in synthetic fibers means that they don't retain as much powder but also bacteria as animal hair; the resiliency of synthetic fibers also means that they can withstand frequent washings, leading to a more hygienic makeup routine. The primary goals in development are better powder absorption by texturizing and crimping synthetic fiber and to be more eco-friendly by relying less on fossil fuels. The unstable supply of fur and customer ethical concerns has dramatically increased the demand for synthetic alternatives to natural hair.

Review of Uyeda Bisyodo Shiori Eye Brushes (CDJapan)

It took 11 business days for me to receive my brushes (purchased with my own money) from CDJapan. The website was easy to navigate, but there was no option to filter for all makeup brushes in a synthetic material. I used an approximately $3 off coupon, and the threshold for free shipping was around $90. Fude Beauty and Fude Japan also carried the Uyeda Bisyodo Shiori series; however, their minimums for free shipping were too high i.e. at least $300 for my budget. Beautylish did not have the brand in its inventory. I also attempted to make an account for CDJapan but never received an email verification in my inbox or spam folder. So, I had to use the guest checkout and forwent points that I could have used in a future purchase for a discount. I still received shipping and invoice emails, so I knew I didn't mistype my email address. If I felt strongly about the points, I would've contacted their customer service but honestly didn't mind. The brushes also came with CDJapan's 1-year warranty on makeup brushes, which signaled confidence in quality.
Description of UB Shiori Brushes
Name Shape General Use
S-504 Large Angled Contour eye and nose
S-505 Pencil Precisely apply eyeshadow on the inner corner, uppelower lashlines, etc.
S-507 (the bigger version of S-508) Large Shader Quickly apply a wash of eyeshadow all over the eyelid
S-508 (the smaller version of S-507) Small Shader Apply eyeshadow below the eyelid crease, deepen the outer thirds, etc.
S-509 Smudge Apply eyeshadow as diffused eyeliner from the inner corner to the wing

Visual Comparison of UB Shiori Brushes to Similar Brushes
Comparison of UB Shiori Brushes to RT Brushes
UB's Characteristic Result Comments
More precisely bundled More precise application of eyeshadow, which is helpful near the lashlines The quality control from being hand-made by skilled artisans sets synthetic fude apart from drugstore options and is the primary reason for the cost. There are fewer stray hairs to accidentally poke the eye.
Denser Absorb more powder, which means fewer re-applications of pigment to get desired opacities People with difficulty getting colors to show on their skin tone may find that denser brushes can apply eyeshadow in a much more reasonable time.
More flexible fibers Less "pokey" experience i.e. less pushback when using more pressure, which means less irritation for sensitive skin The use of flexible fibers is apparent in shorter bristles. For example, I find the longer-haired RT 402 to be soft but any of the RT eye brushes to be pokey. I need to be mindful of holding RT eye brushes at certain angles and pressure to use them on my eyelids. To offset the stiffness of synthetic fibers, drugstore brushes are sometimes bundled in a tapered shape e.g. RT 402 so that as many of the finer-tipped ends can contact the face; but this can also limit the brush shapes that give a soft experience.
Brass ferrule Brass is less prone to rust than aluminum, which may result in longer brush life My decade-old aluminum-ferruled RT brushes haven't developed rust anyway. Brass feels more hefty and luxurious than aluminum.
After testing on my eyelids and fingertips, these are the softest brushes that I've ever used. Even with pressure, UB brushes don't feel as rough and exfoliating as RT brushes i.e. there is less audible "bristle" noise during use. Despite being denser than the RT brushes, UB brushes still feel softer due to having more flexible bristles. In comparison to my natural-haired BB Eyeshadow brush, UB brushes feel slightly slicker (but still much less slick than RT brushes). BB's and UB's fiber densities and flex feel similar.
My assessment of these brushes may be hindered by my relatively small collection of brushes. As a result, I can only compare expensive synthetic fude to mostly drugstore synthetic brushes. In addition, my RT and BB brushes are more than a decade old, and I have used my UB brushes for only two months (at the time of writing). I don't intend to purchase natural hair brushes, so I won't be able to compare natural hair to synthetic fude in the future.
I will also update the guide as I collect more synthetic fude and if readers suggest any corrections or give additional information. Feel free to discuss your experiences, good or bad, with synthetic fude in the replies!

How To Stop Odometer – A Guide

How to stop odometer? – This is a frequently asked question among motorists around the world. Despite the various recommendations and offered technics, some of you are not still quite sure which way is better when it comes to interfering with your odometer. First of all, make sure that you have a legitimate reason for it. it may be some fault in functioning or you may just need to test the performance of your car. Needless to say, there are some people who use this for malicious purposes and search for the optimal way that allows them not to get caught in the crime. Of course, we do not encourage wrongdoers to break the law, we only want to tell you what is accepted practice in this case, what can be legitimate reasons that make you think about changing mileage-related data, and of course how to stop mileage on a car.
Let’s get down to business, get ready and armed with the knowledge that will guide you through different situations you may come across.
It is a tool used for measuring the distance traveled by a vehicle. The device may be electronic, mechanical, or a combination of the two. It is placed on the dashboard near the speedometer, which on the other hand indicates the instantaneous speed of the automobile.
If we look through history, we can learn that Roman engineers developed it around 15 BC. As for the modern prototype of it, Blaise Pascal invented it in the 17th century. Mechanical odometers include several cogs. Each cog represents a numerical digit. Distance is counted by tracking the rotations of tires. If you own a brand-new automobile, you can enjoy the fully electronic instrument cluster, accordingly, you have a digital odometer that is no longer cable-dependent. Now magnetic or optical sensors and electronic circuits do the job. Sensors count the rotations made by the toothed wheel. Signals from sensors are sent to the ECU. As a result, it calculates the traveled distance based on pulses. Hence, the result is printed on the board.
Some people confuse it with the trip meter. Different from the above-mentioned tool. It can be reset at any time. Its main function is to count the particular distance between two points. It is extremely useful when you want to calculate miles per gallon, so it allows you to learn more about your fuel consumption more precisely.
What are some problems related to it?
You may ask what issues can we come across when we need a precise reading of mileage data. The most common reason is a broken odometer. Particularly it means that we get misleading information. The key solution in the case of mechanical one is easy to find and eradicate. There are many free tutorials on Youtube, that allow you to fix it yourself if you follow the instructions attentively. In the case of an electronic one, there may be several solutions. You may need to replace sensors, they are located near the back of the transmission. Another solution can be changing the gears, sometimes those are damaged and need replacement.
According to the Electricity.com, more measures you can take are as followings: removing any dust particles and strains, checking the back of the dashboard connector, taking a closer look at fuses and checking the ECU wires, it is a high chance that those are faulty and make it impossible for meters to work properly.
Why it is important?
People are eager to know how to stop odometer and they have a reason for it. the point is that mileage plays a significant role in determining the value of vehicles. If you want to buy a used automobile, the first thing you may ask is the distance it has traveled throughout its life. The higher the number, the higher the chance of the necessity of high maintenance costs in the initial stage of owning the automobile. With the help of the odometer, you can see it with your own eyes, you don’t need to guess it. there comes the danger of accuracy of it. Some dishonest sellers manipulate this data to their advantage which means that they use some devices for malicious purposes. In the following paragraph, you can learn in detail what is it and how it affects the automotive industry.
According to NHTSA, it is the disconnection, resetting or alteration of a vehicle’s odometer with the intent to change the number of miles indicated. Almost half a million buyers become victims of dishonest sellers. This crime costs $1 billion annually. How do they manage it? the answer is simple, they have tools that are available on any online store. The manufacturers of those tools escape the responsibility. The most common is the correction tool, which is meant to roll back the existing numbers. So, if you are interested in how to stop mileage on a car, those devices do not serve purposes.
Additionally, they are easily detected, which means that it just changes data on the surface and it stays on other control units. So, before you decide to lie to someone, be careful you cause inconvenience and misunderstanding.
Strengthening measures against crime is vital. So, government and individuals need to do their best to avoid it. As for laws, the federal government passed a law that requires a written disclosure of the mileage registered on an odometer to be provided on the title by the seller to the purchaser. An automobile that is 20 years or older is exempt from this requirement. As for individual effort, there are some tips and tricks that will help to protect yourself. Those are as followings:
  • Ask the seller to see the title and compare. Be sure that you take a closer look at it.
  • Ask to see maintenance records and make your conclusion.
  • Examine the general wear and tear of the target auto, especially the gas, brake and clutch pedals. Make sure that they are relevant to the numbers displayed.
  • Request automobile history report to eliminate possible discrepancies.
As you can see, automotive crime is one of the big challenges today. However, If someone wants to change numbers on the odometer doesn’t automatically mean that he or she has a bad cause. There are various reasons why they need it, let’s take a closer look at them and find the best alternative that serves this purpose.
You may have a bunch of legitimate reasons to correct your mileage data. Before we discuss how to do it flawlessly, let’s see what can be those reasons. For example, testing your automobile is the first you want to do after remapping and it’s normal that you do not want those unnecessary miles on the display. Other reasons are as followings:
  • You may spot inaccurate information after jump-starting
  • Inaccuracy after dashboard damage
  • Electrical fault
  • After installing a new engine
  • gauge failure
  • after installing the used odometer
You may not think that it’s necessary but sometimes you need to disable your odometer. If you search for the phrase “how to stop odometer?”. Let’s look through what method you may come across. Firstly, you should know that you will need three steps for it.
  1. Find the relevant fuse.
You may find different fuses for different purposes, for example, ignition, alarm or light. You need exactly the odometer fuse.
  1. Remove the fuse.
Take a fuse removal tool and pull the fuse out. This should disable the odometer of your car.
  1. The final step
Examine attentively. Make sure that every other fuse is properly installed. Take a short drive and see if it worked.
All the above-mentioned sound good, but what if you are one of the admirers of high-tech solutions who would like to do all this effortlessly. If it is so, I have good news for you. I will tell you about the innovative module and answer your question – how to stop odometer? – once and forever.
Mileage Blocker is an extraordinary module that can halt the mileage recording process from all control units. The tool is unique because of the advantages and benefits it offers. Additionally, it is used for more ethical purposes than its alternatives. Manufacturers created this module with premium-quality parts and it comes with mobile applications. This means that you don’t need to press the button to change it from mode to mode. It also includes easy installation instruction. If you decide to test your automobile efficiently, choose the quality product which doesn’t not only meet but exceeds your expectations. I will list the main benefits of this blocker, so you will be sure that it is a must-have device to purchase as soon as possible. Here is the list:
  • Altered mileage remains untraceable unconditionally. The information is not stored in any control unit and even with diagnostic testers no one is able to trace the mileage that was stopped while using the module.
  • Doesn’t cause any flaws in the Can-Bus system. At SKF we devote a lot of time to research and development and make sure that you will not encounter such problems.
  • You can turn it off and on while in motion. A key combination can be applied while your automobile is stationary or in motion and you can set the specific mode that you require during that specific time.
  • Miles do not add up spontaneously after removing it. It is the problem for many counterfeits of this module, when you disconnect them, miles start adding up. If you purchase a Mileage blocker you never come across the same problem.
  • It is a legal tool in most countries. However, in most cases, it is illegal to deceive potential buyers. Hence, you can install this module to test the performance of your vehicle in a controlled environment, but don’t use it for deceitful purposes.
So, if you still think about how to stop mileage on a car, do not hesitate. You can purchase the mileage stopper that will serve its purpose flawlessly. If you have any other questions you can check look through the support or contact the customer center.
So, you get all the necessary information that will help you make a smart decision when it comes to your automobile. Do not forget to identify the legitimate reason for s stopping your odometer. After doing it, you can purchase the most reliable module in the world and enjoy its benefits. So, what are you thinking of ? I think you already know how to stop odometer.

I've done rxtechexam, read through 2 books, tried taking notes on as much as I can
I tried finding as many online free practice tests as I can, the more I look up the more info I find I need to learn or remember tho..
I got an 80% on my offical PTCE practice test a lil over a week ago but I'm just so nervous
I've been so groggy for the past week too with the stress and Insomnia, I'm trying to cram a little more today and little lighter the next day so my mind can be prepared for test day
But idk what I should try focusing on
Calculations are kinda of 50/50 to me, I know alot but just some rare equations I don't know and feel are kind of ridiculous..
Any good practice sites I should study the last 2 days before the test that you though looked like the test or would help out??
And how do you get your brain to really focus for the day of exam?
I know breakfast and a shower maybe, idk about a walk tho?
My test is at 6pm to make sure I'm awake as possible since I usually work at 6pm to mornings

MyOpenMath Answers
If your teacher or your entire school is using MyOpenMath, you are probably facing a serious problem. You have to run some tests in MyOpenMath and you don't know the answers. This is probably why you are looking for answers from MyOpenMath.
If you've been hit by a test or quiz the first thing you try to do is find the answer from MyOpenMath. The problem is that there is no easy solution. Although many websites advertise that they have the answers to the tests, make no mistake! The IT department and Pearson Education experts work hard to make sure that you cannot copy answers from the Internet.
Questions are periodically changed and new questions are added (sometimes new questions are added every day).
Test answers that may be correct today will be incorrect tomorrow. When you buy test answers, you put yourself at serious risk. Most likely the solutions are wrong or out of date and you will lose money too.
MyOpenMath Cheat
MyOpenMath cheat service was designed to help students complete their MyOpenMath course. Not necessarily to provide answers to the MyOpenMath test and quiz questions.
If you are a busy student, you clearly understand that it takes a long time to perform well on any MyopenMath quiz, study skills, homework, or even reality checks. That is why MyopenMath cheat is to make things easily accessible and affordable to save you time.
Several platforms offer this services to help MyOpenMath students with their quiz, study skills, homework, or even reality checks. These platforms have seasoned math experts who will access your MyOpen Math course through Canvas or directly through the MyOpenMath portal to complete the modules you need.
Can I Get a MyOpenMath Answer Key?
Some websites claim to have MyOpen Math answer fixed. Judging by the looks, it seems that some people have successfully hacked into the system and gotten the answers.
It sounds very complex, right? But that may sound good to you, the student who wants the answers.
The bad news is that there is no MyOpenMath answer key. Only your teacher has the required password to view the responses. And no one can hack the system to get it. So the people who claim to have all the My Stats Lab answers are basically lying to you. It is impossible to have all the answers to all the latest questions.
Truth be told, math is difficult. And it is not for everyone. In case you need to take a MyOpenMath quiz and test, you really need to get all the help you can get. MyOpenMath is the right platform you need for your math problems. For an easy understanding of math and how to get your answers ready, we did a full review on MyOpenmath. This article takes an in-depth look at the MyOpenMath platform and provides you with a simple answer to all your questions.

Some examples:
Some questions allow calculations be entered as answers. You can also enter whole numbers, negative numbers, or decimal numbers. If you enter a decimal value, be sure to give at least 3 decimal places.
Alternatively, you can enter mathematical expressions.

2023.06.03 04:40 disneyblonde Combine Old & New

I rejoined WW after years & years in January. I previously did the plan where fiber & fat were counted. I’ve not been able to stick to it at all except for the 1st week I joined. I honestly think it’s because I am annoyed that something small can cost 9 points instead of 3 like before. I’m just about at the end of my contract & will probably be done. I’ve lost the same 5-6 points for 6 months now.
I also think it’s hard because I’m 100% dairy free now. In the past I would have taken advantage of cottage cheese & filling, low fat cheese for protein, but I can’t anymore. I have enjoyed the “habit” things like zero points for chicken breast, popcorn, etc.
Now the question is, has anyone implemented the oldest point plan & combined the zero points food & been successful? I found the Healthi App & and old points calculator online.
Thoughts? I’m so frustrated.

2023.06.03 01:58 Capable-Cry-5306 REO Experience

Hi! Just want to share my experience in REO since nakikita ko dito mayroon mga hindi alam kung anong RC ang papasukan. Hope this helps din para doon sa cinoconsider mag REO 😊
If you're considering REO, let me warn you na agad na marami ang pre recorded videos. They were true to their words naman when they said na zero-based and discussion kasi talagang from scratch ang ginawang discussion. Marami akong mga topics na first view ko pa lang or if hindi naman first view, self study lang during undergrad pero para sa akin sobrang solide mag discuss ng mga reviewers kasi kahit isang beses ko lang napanood mga videos nila (without recalling pa ito ha), nagets ko agad mga topics. For context din pala, pure online reviewee ako kaya REO din talaga cinonsider ko kasi ang ganda ng app nila, available pre recorded videos, assessments, quizzers, concepts summary, and you can ask questions din sa mga reviewers sa app. Anyway, ito ang mga experience ko per reviewer sa REO.
Atty. Nicko (RFBT) - siya inunan ko kasi RFBT ang pinaka una kong pinanood na pre rec vid haha. Well... I think he's okay naman. If you want to have a full grasp of the overall provisions of the certain law, good siya. Pero most of the time, I opt to read na lang ng handouts and make my own summary kasi I feel like he's reading lang naman mga nasa powerpoint and hindi rin gaano comprehensive mga examples niya. Pero like I said, ito ay opinion ko lang ah, what works best for you might be different sa what works best for me. Also, if meron kabg RFBT reviewer book ni sir, enough na yun basahin tapos panoorin mo na lang ng 2x speed si atty nicko haha.
Atty. Diane (RFBT) - ito lodi talaga. Good siya isunod after mo magbasa ng provisions ng law or after mo mapanood si atty. Nicko kasi grabe ang galing mag summarize ni atty. Diane ng bawat topics. Sa app during batch namin, parang ang meron lang siya na pre rec vids ay contracts, sales, partnerhship and corporation. Pero since siya rin nagtuturo during weekend or live discussions, sobrang na appreciate ko ang law kahit pa hirap na hirap ako. Ang ganda rin ng mga examples ni atty. Diane and yung mga mnemonics niya. Imagine yung corporation na pagkahaba haba aralin, nai discuss niya in 5hours. Amazed talaga ako doon kasi parang ang dali dali intindihin ng law sa kanya hehe.
Sir Ngina (AFAR) - ito solid din para sa akin pero alam ko hati ang opinion ng mga reviewees sa teaching style ni sir. Pero dahil sa kanya, highest ko ang AFAR (90 ako doon hehe flex ko lang). Noong mag answer ako afar during boards, feeling ko nagsasagot lang ako ng monthly assessments and handouts na provided ni sir, legit ito. As for why nasabi ko na hati ang opinion ng reviewers is because, more focused sa standards si sir. Hindi siya yung step by step tinuturo yung way ng pagsolve ng problems. More on application talaga siya ng concepts or standards. Pero if maintindihan mo naman mga concepts na dinidiscuss niya, sobrang dali naman na i apply sa problem solving. Overall, gusto ko siya. Very helpful siya talaga, galing niya mag discuss ng concepts. Ang masasabi ko lang dito is sana iimprove pa yung handouts na provided kasi kulang yung concepts na discussed doon sa handouts.
Atty. Bagayao (AFAR) - Waaaaa isa pa itong lodi ko. Advertise ko na agad yung quicknotes niya na libro kahit wala ako noon hahahaha. Pero yung way niya ng pagtuturo during live discussion grabe sobrang galing. Good siya after mapanood concepts duscussion ni sir ngina. Kasi if si sir ngina focused sa concepts tapos hindi mo mai apply sa problem solving, si atty. Bagayao naman ay sobrang galing naman sa pag solve ng mga problems. Napapadali niya talaga ang pagsosolve haha. sobrang helpful niya talaga sa pagsolve especially for me. Bili kayo quicknotes niya sa afar hahaha
Sir Karim (FAR) - noong sinabi niyang no brainer ang far, legit na no brainer talaga. Hirap ako sa far during undergrad, mabilis ako ma overwhelm sa mga problems especially if mahaba na. Pero dahil kay sir karim talaga, isa yung far sa lagi ko nilu look forward aralin. Ang ganda rin ng handouts niya and ang galing ng way niya ng pagdidiscuss ng concepts. Alam niyo ba, during undergrad, hindi ko maiintindihan ang isang topic kapag di ako nag solve pero kay sir kar talaga, dumating yung point na kinulang ako sa time kaya ang pinanood ko na lang is yung concept discussion niya. Hindi ako nanood ng problem solving discussions niya and hindi ako nag solve pero grabe during preboards, alam ko pa rin paano iso solve yung problem. So ayun, magaling talaga si sir karim, legit na no brainer ang FAR 🥹
Sir Vhinson (FAR) - Si sir ang live lecturer sa FAR namin, just like atty. Bagayao, ang galing mag summarize ni sir ng mga topics and sobrang lambing ng boses niya haha. Kahit nakaka ilang problems na kayo na sinosolve, hindi nakaka overwhelm. Ewan ko ba sa kanila ni sir karim kung paano nila napapa feel na sobrang dali lang ng far. Pero ayun true naman, i think na reflect naman sa score ko during boards na nadalian ako sa far becaus of them (86 ako hehe).
Sir Rex (Tax) - dami issue ni sir rex noh? Hahahahaha pero dahil yan sa mga jokes niya hahaha pero for me, di ko na lang pinapansin talaga 🥲 pero syempre iba iba naman tayo ng level of sensitivity kaya understandable na ayaw ng iba. Pero during live lectures naman, okay naman siya. Hindi naman siya nagjojoke ng mga ganun haha siguro nababasa rin nila mga feedback. Anywayyyyy, magaling si sir sa tax. Totoo yun. Ang isa sa nagustuhan ko kay sir rex ay binibigyan niya ng explanation as to bakit tinatax ito, bakit ganito ang way ng pag tax, bakit exempted, bakit hindi exempted, etc. Gusto ko rin yung dinidiscuss niya yung differences ng application ng tax sa academe and in actual practice. Very helpful siya especially for those who plan to enter the tax practice. May nababasa ako na outdated daa vids ni sir rex. Pero para sa akin parang minimal lang naman. Like yung RCIT rate na 30% pa sa vid niya. Pero parang yun lang naman? Or mga amount sa de minimis pero kaunti lang din. Pwede naman ma check sa handouts kung ano ang iba tsaka may video naman sa umpisa si sir rex ng summary ng mga naiba ng rates or tax provisions. Pero like i said nga, okay siya sa akin pero it might not be okay for you :)
Sir Darell (Aud. Prob.) - if gusto mo ng mga practice sa FAR or further discussions sa auditing, watch sir darell. Guilty akk kasi kaunting vids lang napanood ko sa kanya kasi syempre limited na rin naman time and para sa akin kasi if okay na sa FAR and AT, okay ka na rin sa AP haha. Pero solid yung pre week niya tapos dami ko nakikita na comments during pre week na "yung mga tanong ni sir, palagi lumalabas yan sa boards" and true enough naman, lumabas talaga hahahaha.
Sir Monterola (AP) - Siya lecturer namin sa live discussion. Funny ni sir kaya kahit after luncha ng schedule namin jan di ka aantukin 😆 pero wala naman, kasi nga maganda na foundation ko sa far and AT kaya for confirmation na lang sa akin itong live discussion sa AP.
Sir Escala (AT) - If plan mo mag enroll sa REO, dapat si sir escala dahilan mo. Charot ! Hahhaha pero bias ko talaga tong sir kasi sobrang galing mag discuss ng AT. Tinutulugan ko lang to noon kasi di ko maintindihan tapos nagkakabisado lang ako mga answers sa test banks para makapasa sa exams pero dahil kay sir escala, maning mani yang AT na yan kahit pagbali baligtarin niyo pa questions hahaha
Sir Ngina (AT) - Sita live lecturer namin sa AT and nagulat ako hahahaha ang galing din pala ni sir sa AT 😆 akala ko afar lover lang siya eh. Pero ayun na amaze ako na very flexible itong mga reviewers ng reo sa pagtuturo, akala ko kasi kung ano lang ang tinuturo nila sa pre rec, yun lang din tuturo nila during live. Pero ang galing ni sir Ngina, helfpful mga summaries and mnemonics niya.
Sir Rhad (MS) - Unahan ko na hahaha concept based si sir rhad. Intindihin mo ang concepts if gusto mo makasagot sa problems. If visual learner ka at gusto mo sa problem solving lang mag focus, di ko recommended si sir kasi bihira siya magsulat sa board pag problem solving, turuan ka na lang niya pano mag solve mabilis sa calculator haha. Works best siya sa akin kasi concept based talaga gusto ko. Kaya kahit di ako palasagot ng mga problems, basta napanood ko na concept discussion ni sir and alam ko na formulas and reasoning bakit ganoon yung formula, ang dali na rin i apply.
Ma'am Seanne (MS) - Ito si Ma'am grabe eh. Ang ganda na tapos ang galing pa magturo. Good siya for concepts and problem solving sa MS. Yung mga hindi nanonood kay sir rhad, sabi nila sapat na raw live discussion ni ma'am seanne kasi siksik talaga sa concepts and problem solving hehe
Nag reflect naman sa grades ko yung mga sinasabi ko na tinulungan talaga ako ng REO na makapasa. 85.50 ang overall average ko kahit pa during undergrad below average student ako at inulan ng tres during integ review 🤣
Ayun lang. Wala naman ako nalimot na subjects noh? Haha pero feel free to ask naman sa commenrs regarding REO pa especially if planning kayo mag pure online. Basta ang dapat tandaan lang if you're considering REO at need niyo ng zero based discussion, be disciplined enough na tapusin yung mga pre recorded videos. Mahaba man pero sulit naman para sa tatlong letra sa dulo ng pangalan natin. Alam ko sa sarili ko na REO ang mas suited sa akin na RC kasi napapanood ko naman mga free webinars nila and gusto ko teaching style ng mga reviewers tapos ayun since pure online ako, helpful itong app nila talaga.
Goodluck Future CPAs!

2023.06.03 00:19 themasterpodcaster Basalt Shielding Complete Enclosure and Frame

Basalt should be used with water shielding or at least should sometimes. This post is part one of my basalt and water enclosure.
Part 2 Water Shielding Complete enclosure

This frame to hold up the ceiling and for safety to keep the basalt walls from collapsing on me. It can also help to hold up the walls of basalt sandbags or poly tubing and can help to keep it straight. It could even help to hold up the water layer and to provide a straight structure for that.

3.17 wide
2.25 ft high frame
7.75 length 5.67ft long for height 1.08 ft for the 6.5 inch thick frame on either end 1fT for .5 thick basalt on either end
and theres a small doorway around foot end which gets filled in and then door is 1.6 high and 2ft wide I guess it gets filled in then other bags are in front of it and overlapping sides and top

25 inches wide 3.17 on the outside minus 1.08 is 25 inches the walls are 6.5 inches thick with a 5.5 inch 2x6 and two .5 inch pieces of plywood equals 6.5 inches per wall 1.08 total
height 1.51ft high 7.75 inches total almost .67 ft ceiling 7 inches thick a 5.5 inch 6x2 and 2 .75 inch pieces of plywood floor 1 piece of .75 plywood
length 5.67ft

I first described what I wanted to to my friend who knows about construction. He told me what the frame needed to be like to be strong enough for high level of safety.
I asked if we could make the part around the head strong since it needs to support 2ft thick of basalt and 1ft thick of water and the part around my body weaker and thin but he
said it will mess it up to build to different frames and connect them. He said its stronger just to build it in the same way with the same dimensions for the entire length of the frame.
Im am being forced against my will to build it with part of the material wasted on surrounding the bigger frame instead of providing thicker protection even though I think its overkill given
my extreme level of desperation and need to go faster.

I think he said that the ceiling would be made with a piece of .75 inch plywood on the outside then 2x6 pieces of wood under it running perpendicular to the long dimension of the structure. The pieces
have the 2 thing part lying against the plywood of the ceiling and the 6 inch dimension sticks down into the box. The Walls are made the same way but with two .5 inch pieces of plywood around the 2x6 pieces.
The pieces stand up vertically. The 2x6 sixes are only either 2 or 4 inches apart I think he said? The floor is one piece of .75 inch plywood to help hold the walls in place to help keep them from shifting out of fully
supporting the ceiling and then stressing the joints more. He said we can build it with plastic bolts to avoid using steel nails or nails made of other metals. This is nice compared to a frame made of mortar and bricks
because we can move it to different places hopefully including for testing at better places. I guess well put holes in the side of the inner plywood walls and ceiling to increase how much air the structure can hold so I can
test it for longer periods. He says that plywood offgasses formaldehyde and I read you cant coat it or wrap it to stop that. So I guess its necessary to use more expensive formaldehyde free plywood.

The shielded person can get on a piece of .75 inch plywood with 4 mill farmers plastic on one side and the floor has greased farmers plastic on it so that the person can be slid into place without needing enough room or
fitness to wriggle in. Someone slides me in without me needing the room to wriggle back and forth or up an down and with less chance of bumping my nose Or you could lie on plywood with thick plastic on one side or OSB which
has a slick surface and the floor would be greased farmer plastic. There is an outline on the plywood and I lie just in the right spot and they push me in.

This design makes it 6 inches wider than my shoulders which I had hope would be enough to wriggle in without really any vertical room despite my body being somewhat messed up and not being able to get exercise.
Now im thinking this give me enough room to be pushed into place but I'm wondering could I get away with only 3 inches extra at the shoulders?

There could be 2 plastic pulleys in the corners and I get pulled instead of pushed in so it's easier.

This structure is supposed to totally surround me in water as well as basalt. Since the water containers wont hold up under the weigh of being underneath the basalt floor and ceiling as well the water has to be inside the frame
with me so that only my weight is on top of it. So Im planning on leaving enough room to have 2 layers of large fomenteck water bags. The two layers mean they will overlap at the seems. Im thinking that each layers bags will
also be stuck to each other with tape to keep them from separating and so they slightly overlap at the edges but without being thicker then the thickest part of the bags. If there isnt enough room for two layers somehow then
the small thinner fomenteck bags could create my two layers or just overlap the seems. The interior is about 1.5ft so two 4 inch thick fomenteck bag high floor will leave 10 inches minus the room for the plywood to slide in on.

plastic bolts 10 for $9

amazon plastic bolt $6 for 10


So this is a a enclosure of basalt thats 6 inches thick for the ceiling, the floor, side walls and the front and back wall. Its a complete enclosure and doorway gets blocked up after Im in it. When I made it like this I was assuming that
there was no way to make a thinner floor anyway but with the poly tubing I might be able to make it 3 or 4 inches thick using a double layer of the smallest poly tubing and save some weight.

CEILING AND FLOOR 32.32 cubic ft 4.17ft wide x 7.75ft long frame is 6.75 plus .5 ft basalt on one side and .5 basalt on the other is 7.75 total
SIDE WALLS 17.44 cubic ft 2.25ft high by 7.75ft long outside of frame is 2.25ft high and i'm defining the walls as the height between the basalt ceiling and floor which is the height of the frame. The walls dont include
the basalt that is over the wall but is above or underneath the level of the frame which can be defined as part of the ceiling or floor.
END WALLS 7.13 cubic ft 2.25ft high by 3.17 ft long The length of the end walls are the distance between the inner surface of the side walls.
say use 4 60lb bags to block the door thoroughly 3 to 2.4 cubic ft
SOLID WALL 59.3 cubic ft to 59.9 cubic ft 60 cubic ft is 2.4 tons tons at 80lb per cubic ft with a solid wall 3 tons at 100lb per cubic ft with solid wall this will really at least a touch less if I make it with bags because there will be some space between the bags
no matter what I do.
POLY TUBING WALL The round shape of the tubing means that the wall won't be solid and will have some of the space empty. Ill say that if I use the tubing it will only use 80 percent of what a totally solid wall will. So if I use two layers of 3 inch tubes of basalt
then the most basalt it can use is 80 percent of a solid wall I think.
Total 60 cubic ft with poly tubing at 80lb a cubic ft is 1.92 tons at at 100lb a cubic ft is 2.4 tons

theres .5 ft of basalt in every direction so Im adding extra basalt to reach the full thickness I want around my brain.

ON TOP A 2X2ft square above brain uses 6 cubic extra ft adding 1.5ft thick total to make it 2ft thick altogether. is centered on forehead and the back and of it is about 3 inches away from the back wall of the whole structure.
BEHIND 2X2X2ft total uses 6 cubic ft extra adding 1.5ft thickness The top is level with the rest of the basalt ceiling the bottom is level with the bottom of the TIs brain and is centered on there brain from left to right.
ON THE SIDES 2x2 ft and 1ft thick total uses 4 cubic ft extra for both sides adding .5ft thick Is the same as the behind one but on the sides.
TOTAL is 16 cubic ft solid wall .64 tons at 80lb per cubic ft .8lb tons if 100lb per cubic ft using poly tubing uses .51 tons at 80lb per cubic ft and .64 tons at 100lb per cubic ft
GRAND TOTAL WITH STRUCTURE 2.43 with poly tubing 80lb a cubic ft or 3.04 tons with poly tubing and 100lb per cubic ft

this is describing an additional outer wall that fits over the basalt box I already described to bring it up to 1ft thick for part of it.
CEILING AND FLOOR 15.75 cubic ft 5.25ft x 3ft
SIDE WALL 9.75 cubic ft 3.25x 3ft
BACK WALL 13.5 cubic ft 3.25x4.17
total 40 cubic ft added with poly tubing .8 tons at 80lb a cubic ft and 1 ton with 100lb a cubic ft
GRAND TOTAL 2.72 tons with poly tubing 80lb a cubic ft and 3.4 tons with 100lb a cubic ft

brain protection 2 with 2x2x2ft above and behind brain total thickness .
GRAND TOTAL2.97 tons with poly tubing 80lb a cubic ft and 3.71 tons with 100lb a cubic ft

HEAVY PROECTION AROUND BRAIN total is 63.5 cubic ft 2.35 tons at 80lb per cubic ft 2.94 at 100lb per cubic ft
4.5 ft high 5ft wide and 3ft long 67.5 total - 12 inside equals 55.5cubic ft total 2 to 2.5 tons roughly
plus 2x2 1ft tall on top and 2x2x1 on side for extra thickness 8 cubic ft total

I did a calculation that was for protection around brain that was 4 or 4.5 ft long so my head and body would go into it 1.5 or 2ft.
The entire back wall was 2ft thick the entire celling was 2ft thick the side walls were 1ft thick. It was 4.1 tons but
. Then the section around the body would be reduced since it takes care of all of that part.
If that part is 1ft thick except for the floor which is .5 ft thick then it would weigh 2.5 tons. Total is 6.6 tons.
None of this was with poly tubing.

8x8x8.5 outside
6x6x6 interior
2ft thick celling
.5ft thick floor
1ft thick wall all the way around
9.44 tons at 80lb a cubic ft
11.8 tons at 100lb a cubic ft

has a 8x8.5x1ft thick back extra wall behind it for two ft thick protection in one direction
adds 2.72 tons at 80lb a cubic ton3.4 tons at 100lb a cubic ton
TOTAL 12.16 tons at 80lb per cubic ton 15.2 tons at 100lb a cubic ft

Im guessing you can have basalt shipped to you or move it yourself for as little as $100 a ton or $200 a ton
The most you should pay even in the worst locations is about $1000 per ton I think
You can get cheaper shipping with bulk orders and perhaps cheaper if you have a buisinsess buy it for you.

So with 15 tons it would take $1500 to $3000 in the best location and $15000 or less in the worst
with half of that at 7.5 tons it would take $750 to $1500 in the best location and $7500 at most in the worst
If a TI had enough money they could even double this protection in the best location.
You haft to figure out how to have it meet the right building codes for earth homes or whatever.
You might help it to stay up and protect it with fence posts cinderblocks and cement or bricks and cement.
If you have sandbags exposed to the sun put a heavy tarp over them to make them last longer.

For the door perhaps you just take out a 18 inch wide 10 inch tall piece at the bottom and put some frame around it
to hold it up and then after you crawl in you block it up with sandbags of basalt. One thing you might use is basalt
blocks as the frame and you might be able to use some kind of mortar based on sand sized criva or to mix criva with mortar.
Solid basalt blocks havnt been tested yet.

So I'm being forced against my will to use only 2 to 4 tons of basalt even though I have been planning on using 6 or 7 tons to get a full foot around my body and 2ft on the top of my head and behind it that takes up that whole surface.
So I can only make it 6 inches thick for most of it. Its a challenge to try and make close to six inches thick instead of a lot more or less than that. Its a challenge to have it overlap and to block the seams between the bags well enough
with only 6 inches thick. Iv heard that full size 14 inch by 26 inch long sandbags are about 6 to 8 inches thick when full. This already might make it much much thicker if it has to be 8 inches and I dont think they could be pushed together
well enough to erase the spaces between them. Im thinking that to block RNM possibly its more important to have a complete protection lass bad weak points in it then with physical attacks Its important for me thinking its a good test at
least ast his thickness. Use the mini sand bags in a double layer for the roof and floor but I'm still somewhat worried about blocking the cracks well enough and I dont know how thick it will be. Since I already ordered a ton of dust I need to
use that so Ill need to put it in large strong enough plastic bags and then put it in the mini sand bags. Or I could just put it in my 6x9 inch 4 mil plastic bags and tape them closed or use zip lock quart, half gallon or gallon bags from the grocery store
possibly. I could use other plastic bags. I could use small plastic bags and do like 3 offset overlapping layers or something. only one of my 3 or 4 tons is dust.

I dont know how it will go for the side walls If i use the mini sandbags it will only be one layer thick and dont know if the spaces between then can be blocked well enough like that. The wall will be 3.25ft tall when you include the ceiling and the floor
as part of the walls height. My friend told me that's as high as you can build with round gravel and non round gravel you can build a 4ft high wall perhaps but that with normal sandbags not mini ones. I will have the plywood frame on one side and
can put water containers holding up a piece of plywood on the other side and stack them between them though. I dont know if this will work well enough.

I had the idea of using poly tubing. This is a tube of 6 mill or less plastic that you can cut and then seal to create bags. You can just buy the roll though. So I could use to layers of 3 inch wide poly tubing running the entire length of the structure to
create first the basalt floor and then the basalt ceiling. They would be offset so that the second layer blocks the cracks in the first. I dont know if you can mush them or leave some out and then flatten them to cover the cracks better.
I could also use 3 layers of 2 inch thick poly tubing with perhaps the middle layer going crossways. Im thinking Ill put a strip of plywood sticking up 6 inches on either side of it so that it can hold in the tubing on the ceiling and keep it from rolling off the side.
Then I can put one extra piece right on top of the plywood divider to cover the gap between the side wall and the ceiling which end at the same height. I dont know how this would work for the walls. I might need the two pieces of plywood on either side. I dont know if
it would be strong enough especially if I use 6 inch wide tubing. I could fit in smaller tubes where two big tubes join each other. You can seal them with twist ties or a heat gun or a might use zip ties. I dont know what works. One benefit of using these is that
instead of a wall of solid basalt, if the tubes end up round then only 75 percent of the space will be full of basalt saving me weight. I dont understand how it isn't a problem to have any empty space in the wall at all though.

If i put my basalt in poly tube bags and it forms a pretty non flexible cylinder then it might not matter much if I use smaller criva or 3/8 to 5/8 buttons in terms of the flexibility. Since part of my structure will only be 6 inches thick though it might be more important
to keep the rocks small and reduce the gaps between them. Also because im making a complete enclosure and trying to put thicker protection around my brain then your 1ft I I will I will hopefully be able to reduce the RNM and attacks on my brain more then you
can reduce your attacks on you head with your set up. Possibly with RNM and mental attacks blocking the cracks matters more I dont know.

6 mil poly tubing different sizes dont know if its good quality

How to Pay Back Your Student Loan Fast?
Disclaimer: This article contains affiliate links. Although we are independent, we may receive compensation from our partners, but this does not directly or indirectly affect the loan and interest.
There are stories about people paying off their student loans early, and many of those stories are real. Some students have paid off their R80,000 loan in under five years. How did they do it? You shouldn’t need a lot of motivation to pay off your loan as quickly as possible to enable you to do other things with your money.

Loan Priority

Does buying a new car, buying your first home, or traveling sound better than paying off a loan for years? That student loan needs to be paid off first, and here’s why. There are more than 44 million Americans with student loans and owing over R1 trillion. No doubt, they all want to pay back their loans as well. The average college student has more than R38,000 in student loan debt when they graduate. Some students make it their priority to pay off that debt. It doesn’t matter whether they are federal student loans, private loans, or education grants. If you should prioritize paying off a student loan as soon as possible.

What’s the Best Way to Quickly Pay off Your Student Loans?

Start with your mindset. If you do nothing, then nothing changes. You need to be willing to work hard. Be ready to make some short-term sacrifices. They will eventually pay off. Keep a focus on your goals. That feeling of freedom when your debts are paid will be great. Imagine that feeling of happiness and satisfaction when you make your last payment.
Besides changing your mindset, here is a list of real steps to pay off your student loan fast. Some are budgeting tips, and others are opportunities you can create yourself. See what category will fill you with inspiration to push you towards a debt-free life.

Understand Student Loans

Make the time to understand fully all about student loans and what other financial aid there is available. A student loan may sound straightforward, but there are a lot of potential options that you can also consider.
Many students graduate and have several different bad credit loans from direct lenders and the federal government. You need to make up your mind about which loan best suits your situation. Choose from federal student loans, financial aid from the state, scholarships from colleges, and many more. If you select the suitable one, you will pay it off in no time!

Paying Off Student Loans While Still in College

Here are a few tips on how to pay off student loans while still in college.

Apply For Grants and Scholarships

Find out if there are any grants or scholarships available. You might be pleasantly surprised at the number of private and public awards for which you can apply. There are scholarships for sports accomplishments, good grades, music success, and many more.

Look For a Part-Time Work

Can you manage a part-time job while studying? If the answer is yes, start looking for a gig that fits into your study schedule. The money you earn can go towards your education. Most students find good offers in college bars and cafes, libraries, and shops.

Try Alternative Ways to Make Money

There are numerous money-making jobs you can do while attending school. Things like freelancing, crowd-working, tutoring, and signing up for work-study programs.

Start Repayments Before Graduation

You may be able to pay back the student loan before graduating, depending on the type of loan you have. Carefully read the terms of your student loan before signing it.
Warning! Any money you pay before graduating goes straight onto the principal loan balance because interest does not accrue until you have finished or left school. You need to check that your loan does not attract early payment penalties.

Simple Tips For Paying Off Student Loans Fast

There are a few steps that will help you repay your student loan faster. Some of them include payment setup, schedules, and sticking to budgets.

  • Calculate Your Loan
If you want to pay off your student loan quickly, you better figure out the payments you will need to make to achieve that goal. Use a student loan calculator. You will see the amounts and the time frame quickly and see if it’s realistic.

  • Arrange Auto Payments for Student Loans
This is silly and simple. Lenders sometimes offer lower interest rates if you set up automatic online payments.

  • Punctual Payments
Late payments or defaulting on payments will cost you penalties and additional interest. Just add all that to your total repayable amount!

  • Pay Student Loans Fortnightly
By paying fortnightly, you will make one additional payment each year. It also means you are paying down your principal faster, and that helps shorten your loan period.

  • Is Your Student Loan Interest Tax Deductible?
When doing your annual tax return, see if the interest you have paid qualifies as a deduction. When you receive your tax refund, put the amount towards your loan.

Stay on Track With Your Goals

Buying a new car or taking a luxury vacation may sound great, but if by doing any of these, you set back your loan repayment goals, it’s not worth it. Live within your means, or below them without taking additional same day loans, and make paying back your student loan a top priority.

2023.06.02 15:23 astrovaidya Birth Chart Calculator

Hi, welcome back to my new post, in this blog post, we will share with you the deep details of the birth chart calculator reading method with a deep explanation with the help of an example. So let’s start.

What is a Birth Chart?

A birth chart, also known as a natal chart, is a snapshot of the positions of celestial bodies such as the Sun, Moon, planets, and other astrological points at the exact moment of an individual's birth. It is considered to be a symbolic representation of the unique energies and characteristics that were present at the time of your birth, which can provide insights into your personality traits, life path, relationships, and various aspects of your life.
A birth chart is typically represented as a circular diagram divided into twelve sections called houses, each representing different areas of life such as career, relationships, home, and more. The planets are plotted within these houses, indicating their specific positions in the zodiac signs at the time of your birth. The zodiac signs represent different qualities and characteristics associated with each planet.
Interpreting a birth chart involves analyzing the relationships and aspects between the planets and other significant points in the chart. It can help astrologers understand your strengths, weaknesses, talents, and challenges, providing a deeper understanding of your potential and life experiences.
By examining the birth chart, astrologers can provide insights and guidance regarding various aspects of your life, including personality traits, career choices, relationships, health, and overall life patterns.

The history of birth chart calculation can be traced back thousands of years to ancient civilizations such as Mesopotamia, Egypt, and Greece. These civilizations developed various forms of astrology and celestial observation, which laid the foundation for the birth chart calculation we use today.
One of the earliest known systems of astrology is Mesopotamian astrology, practiced in ancient Mesopotamia (modern-day Iraq) around 2000 BCE. They believed that the positions of celestial bodies had an influence on human lives, and they created birth charts to interpret these influences. These charts were primarily focused on predicting events and offering guidance for kings and rulers.
In ancient Egypt, astrology was also highly regarded. The Egyptians associated certain gods and goddesses with specific celestial bodies and believed that these deities influenced human destinies. Birth charts were used to determine an individual's connection to these deities and their potential life paths.
The Greek civilization made significant contributions to the development of astrology and birth chart calculation. The most famous astrologer of ancient Greece was Claudius Ptolemy (2nd century CE), who wrote the influential book "Tetrabiblos." Ptolemy's work laid the foundation for much of Western astrology, including the calculation of birth charts based on the positions of celestial bodies.
Over time, different cultures and astrologers refined the techniques for birth chart calculation. The advent of computers and modern technology revolutionized the process, making it much faster and more accurate. Today, birth chart calculators are widely available online, enabling individuals to generate their charts easily by entering their birth details into specialized software or websites.
It's important to note that astrology and birth chart interpretation are based on symbolic and metaphorical associations rather than scientific evidence. While astrology has been an influential aspect of many cultures throughout history, its practice and acceptance vary among individuals and communities.

How do you Read a Birth Chart?

Reading a birth chart involves interpreting the various elements and symbols present in the chart, such as the positions of planets, zodiac signs, houses, and aspects. Here are the key steps to reading a birth chart:
  1. Obtain the birth chart: To read a birth chart, you need the individual's exact birth date, time, and location. This information is used to calculate the positions of celestial bodies at the time of birth and generate the chart.
  2. Identify the planets: The birth chart will show the positions of the Sun, Moon, and planets at the time of birth. Each planet represents different aspects of a person's personality and life areas. For example, the Sun represents the core essence and identity, the Moon signifies emotions and nurturing, and Mercury represents communication and thinking processes.
  3. Observe the zodiac signs: The planets will be located in specific zodiac signs in the birth chart. Each sign has its unique characteristics and qualities. The interaction between the planets and signs provides insights into how the planetary energies express themselves in different areas of life.
  4. Determine the house placements: The birth chart is divided into twelve houses, each representing a specific life area. The placement of planets in these houses indicates where certain energies and influences are focused in an individual's life. For instance, a planet in the 7th house may indicate a significant emphasis on relationships and partnerships.
  5. Analyze aspects: Aspects refer to the angles formed between planets in the birth chart. They indicate the relationships and interactions between planetary energies. Common aspects include conjunctions (planets close together), oppositions (planets across from each other), trines (120 degrees apart), and squares (90 degrees apart). Each aspect carries its own meaning and influences how the planetary energies interact.
  6. Synthesize the information: To gain a comprehensive understanding, you need to analyze and synthesize the information from the planets, signs, houses, and aspects. Look for patterns, themes, and connections within the birth chart. Consider how different elements interact with each other and how they may influence different areas of life, such as career, relationships, and personal development.
  7. Interpretation: Finally, interpret the birth chart based on your knowledge of astrology, symbolism, and personal experience. Consider the strengths, challenges, potentials, and life patterns indicated by the birth chart. Remember that birth chart interpretations are subjective, and different astrologers may offer varying insights.
It's important to note that reading a birth chart requires a deep understanding of astrology and its symbols. If you're new to astrology, consulting with an experienced astrologer can provide more accurate and personalized insights into your birth chart.

How to find work abroad for couples without language - where to look?
Working abroad = separation from a loved one
Separation from a loved one is one of the main disadvantages of working abroad that people who choose this type of employment complain about. This is an inconvenience that you can effectively combat. The solution is to decide together to go and work for couples. Being employed by the same company is not easy, but it is possible and it does not expose the relationship to weeks of separation.
Where can I find dedicated jobs for couples?

Looking for jobs abroad for couples is possible through:
Online job portals - it is worth starting by browsing popular job portals such as Indeed, Gowork. Job search engines allow you to specify your exact requirements and preferences, e.g. in terms of location, salary level, required qualifications and foreign languages. A trip to work abroad must be properly planned with an honest employer.
Employment agencies - recruitment agencies specialising in work abroad often offer support in finding work for couples. These companies have a lot of experience in recruiting workers from abroad and are able to offer numerous attractive job offers that are tailored to aptitude and skills, as well as assistance with the formalities of departure. The employment office guarantees a legal and safe trip abroad, which avoids many unpleasant problems. The recruitment process is very simple as all the formalities are handled by the staff of the employment agency. The couple looking for work does not have to worry about issues related to travel, contract, insurance or accommodation.
Social networks - many companies and organisations look for employees through social networks such as Facebook, Twitter or LinkedIn. It is worth joining groups or forums dedicated to working abroad, where you can share information and meet people with similar interests.
Job fairs - attending a job fair is a great opportunity to find out about job opportunities abroad. Many companies recruit employees directly at the fair and arrange on-site interviews. Sometimes they offer employees an allotment with their family or partner.
Personal contacts with people who are already working abroad - it is worth taking advantage of opportunities with friends or family. You may find that someone close to you is working abroad, or knows someone who can help you find work, or has heard of opportunities for couples to work abroad.
When looking for work abroad for couples, use a variety of information sources and be open to different opportunities and ways of employment. Among the safest ways to do this is through a proven employment agency, which will provide a safe, fair and yet simple way of employment.
In which industries is it possible to work for couples abroad?
The most popular jobs for couples abroad are in manufacturing. This is due to the variety of duties in this type of company, i.e. product packaging, production line operation, warehouse work, logistical work. The variety of activities in the production and warehouse industry creates opportunities for attractive job offers for couples.
Seasonal jobs for couples abroad are also popular. Most often, these are in the agricultural industries, which offer work in fruit and vegetable harvesting, work in greenhouses. It is important to remember that these are seasonal, short-term jobs, most often offered during holidays.
Increasingly, couples who are specialists in a particular field are choosing to work abroad: medicine, IT workers, engineers. For them, allocation packages are often offered with the whole family, the partner. Work and incentive allowances are then provided, ensuring faster acclimatisation in the new country for the couple deciding to go on such a trip.
Jobs abroad for couples without language skills
Couples who would like to go abroad to work are worried that they won't be able to find a job without knowing the language. Is there anything to worry about? No, because employers in certain industries such as manufacturing, warehouse work, transport and agriculture are more willing to take on couples. Such workers can be more motivated and productive.
Work for couples without language is possible in jobs where there is no or minimal need to communicate while performing the work. This therefore applies to independent work, following initial training in the use of equipment or machinery.
The decision to go to work abroad
Working for couples abroad can be an interesting option for people who want to travel and develop their careers at the same time. Here are some tips that can help couples make the decision and prepare for working abroad:
Identify your goals
Before working abroad, it is worth considering what goals you want to achieve. Is it about gaining new work experience or learning about a different culture and personal development? It is worth discussing these issues and setting common goals to make working abroad mutually rewarding.
Looking for job opportunities
For couples looking for work abroad, we recommend looking for offers that offer employment for both partners. It is a good idea to use online portals, recruitment agencies, social networks and other sources of information when looking for a job. It is also a good idea to send applications to companies that hire employees from different countries, as these companies are often more open to hiring couples.
Financial planning
Before working abroad, carefully analyse the cost of living in the country and calculate what it will cost to live in your new location. Be prepared for possible expenses related to the move, such as housing or transport costs.
Getting to know the culture and language
Going abroad for work requires partners to adapt to the new culture and learn the language spoken by the local community. Start learning the language before you leave so that it is easier to communicate and get along with your new work colleagues.
Planning your free time
If you plan to work abroad, it is important to organise your free time accordingly, especially at the beginning. Work will not become burdensome and tiring if you find time to relax and visit new places. Think about how to spend your free time, what to see and where to go. This is the only way to make the most of your time abroad.
For couples, people who want to develop professionally and personally, working abroad is an interesting option. It is important to plan your trip carefully, take costs into account and commit to learning the language and culture of the country.

2023.06.02 13:27 justanotherloudgirl My TOTK reference book - you may constantly forget what you were supposed to be doing but at least you have a shopping list.

Resources for this game have begun floating around and while I created something like this for BOTW for my own personal use, this game is a bit oversized so I thought I’d share my setup.
I present to you my TOTK reference workbook- which contains a spread of five worksheets:
A listing of all armor items, as well as my location notes, set bonus info, and a detailed breakdown for upgrading every armor item all the way through 4 stars
A calculation sheet that will dynamically update your material inventory needs as you upgrade your items should you use the breakdown sheet to track your upgrades (there's over 170 unique items to track!)
A cookbook with all the recipes I have found in-game or online (that I have tested), listing items, minimum heart recovery, minimum time added to an effect, and minimum time earned for all effects (hasty/tough/sneaky/etc). It also dynamically updates if you want to put in specific components to a recipe to see what you’ll get out for hearts or benefit duration
An elixir guide for max benefits - both with Dragon Horns and without. Admittedly, this sheet was used in BOTW and could use updating, but not today. For the most part, it still applies to TOTK - some things have expanded.
A miscellaneous reference sheet - Bargainer Statue coordinates, Koltin Upgrades, Horse Upgrade recipes, some locations and times for Dragon Appearances (note: incomplete and may not be standard across all games - my experience showed that their timing varied in BOTW between game files)

This spreadsheet is about 90% complete. I’ve personally verified about 60% of the armor upgrades and 95% of everything else. However, I am returning to work on Monday and won’t have 15 hours a day to play around with this absolute time sinkhole of a game so I figured I’d share what I have and I’ll update it when I complete it to my liking. I think it's still a good setup, even somewhat incomplete, no matter where you are in the game.
Details about use are also included as a note in each spreadsheet's top left corner cell. Look for the red triangle. I think it's pretty simple but feel free to also reach out with questions.
Credit where credit is due:
If the breakdown and calculation sheet look familiar, that’s because they are, kinda - they’re structured similarly to a spreadsheet shared by u/rarmeowz in 2018. However, this beefed-up setup came about because I found it incredibly frustrating that their version did not update totals as I upgraded armor items. I fixed that.
A big thank you to u/Entire_Definition_26 for completing the upgrades and sharing their notes on the spread so that I could finish what I was missing - they’re why this is complete!
I’m open to suggestions or feedback. I have my formulas protected mostly to ensure functionality for those who are unfamiliar with Excel. The workbook is 100% functional as it is. However, if you believe you can improve on my setup, feel free to reach out and I’ll send over the unlocked version!
I may cross-post this to other TOTK-based communities. Disclaimer: I try to be as accurate as possible but please remember that I am a human. Any and all errors are my own. Feel free to message me to let me know if this spreadsheet is helpful to you or to notify me of an error.

2023.06.02 12:03 PandaRemit New low! Will the JPY Face "Depreciation Tide" ?

New low! Will the JPY Face
Recently, the friends working and studying in Japan are plunged into dire suffering. Wages are shrinking and prices are rising, but the Japanese yen is falling again. It’s so miserable.
Since April this year, the yen exchange rate has been on a "slide" and has started a downward trend. By the end of May, the yen exchange rate has drifted below the edge of 5! According to statistics, the yen exchange rate has hit a new low in nearly half a year since the end of November last year! It is truly a silent decline, quietly reaching a new low, and then stunned everyone.
Source: Sina Finance
So why did the Japanese yen exchange rate continue to fall? Is this the best time to bargain-hunting? Will the yen continue to depreciate further? In order to solve everyone's questions, Panda conducted a thorough investigation and brought back first-hand information——

01 What happened to the yen?

The US-Japan interest rate gap continues to widen

Last Friday, the latest data released by the United States Department of Commerce showed that an inflation indicator favored by the Federal Reserve, the core PCE price index, excluding food and energy prices, rose both month-on-month and year-on-year gains, both exceeding market expectations. The above data, combined with the resilience of the US labor market, a rebound in factory production, and corporate activity, indicated that the US economy has started to recover after experiencing a slowdown in the first quarter, increasing the possibility of a rate hike in June.
Source: Reuters
Meanwhile, on May 27, US President Joe Biden and Speaker of the United States House of Representatives, Kevin McCarthy, reached a preliminary agreement to raise the federal government debt ceiling, meaning that the worries about the US debt ceiling impasse gradually dissipated, and the market's uncertainty about the US economy gradually eliminated, which may have cleared the way for the Federal Reserve to raise interest rates again in June.
According to the "FedWatch" of the CME Group , the current market expectation that the Fed will raise interest rates by another 25 basis points at its meeting on June 13-14 is close to 60%. According to Kyodo News agency, the market generally predicts that the Fed will continue to raise interest rates, and investors are concerned about the widening interest rate gap between Japan and the US, which has led to a significant selling of yen to buy US dollar assets, resulting in continued weakness of the yen.

The extreme-dovish stance of the Bank of Japan

After the outbreak of the COVID-19, Japan's economic recovery is not optimistic. Combined with the outbreak of the Russia-Ukraine conflict, import costs and inflation continue to rise, which further increases the downward pressure on the Japanese economy. As a result, the Bank of Japan has to maintain loose monetary policy to boost the weak domestic economy and spur higher prices.
This is contrary to the financial and monetary policies of major central banks such as the US and Europe. It should be noted that the Federal Reserve, the Bank of England, and others are aggressively raising interest rates to curb high inflation! So, there is a sharp contrast between the hawkish stance of the Federal Reserve and the extreme dovish stance of the Bank of Japan, meaning that the yen is facing further pressure...

In addition, according to the Nikkei, Bank of Japan Governor, Ueda Kazuo, stated in an interview on May 25th that it has not yet continuously and steadily reached the price targets set by the Japanese government and the Bank of Japan, emphasizing the attitude of continuing the large-scale monetary easing policy. This statement shattered the market's expectation of Japan's monetary policy shifting towards tightening!

02 Can the downward trend reverse?

As a manufacturing export power, the depreciation of the yen poses risks, but overall, it is beneficial for the Japanese economy, which can improve the export performance of Japanese enterprises, increase export competitiveness, and attract foreign tourists. The latest statistics from the JNTO show that 1.94 million tourists visited Japan in April, recovering to 66% before the epidemic.
It can be seen that the Japanese government has high hopes for an economic recovery driven by export demand. Therefore, there is no tangible progress in Japan's monetary policy shift.
However, the market is still full of predictions that Japan will adjust its policies this year. Economists from Goldman Sachs, BNP Paribas and other institutions expect the Bank of Japan to adjust the Yield Curve Control plan (YCC) in July; Societe Generale stated that the yen may rise by about 7% in the “coming weeks”, and they have seen signs of the Bank of Japan raising the benchmark bond yield limit at its policy meeting held on June 15-16.
The exchange rate changes are difficult to handle, and some are happy while others are worried. Panda reminds students studying abroad in Japan, who have to pay tuition fees recently to seize the opportunity of the yen exchange rate falling, pay close attention to it, and take action in a timely manner~

2023.06.02 11:35 othrayaw Splatoon 3 Sizzle Season adds new weapons, stages, challenges, and more!

Looking for the right time to jump into the Splatoon™ 3 game? Well, the new Sizzle Season is upon us—and it’s bringing a few new additions to spice up the online* battlefield.
Sizzle Season includes:
  • 2 newly added battle stages (Barnacle & Dime and Humpback Pump Track)
  • 1 new Salmon Run stage (Jammin’ Salmon Junction)
  • 11 newly added weapon sets (including 2 new main weapons: S-BLAST ’92 and Painbrush)
  • New Challenge mode
  • A new seasonal catalog
  • New music
  • New and returning stuff in the shops
This content is part of a free update. Your game may have automatically updated, but you can double check on your Nintendo Switch™ system by highlighting the game’s icon on the HOME Menu, pressing the + Button, and selecting Software Update (internet connection required).
Wait, what’s this new Challenge mode? Sharp eye, squiddo! Challenge is a newly added mode that adds a twist to team battles. You can jump in solo or bring along friends.
Each Challenge is a limited-time event that adds special rules or limitations to spice up Turf War or Anarchy Battles. You may notice fog rolling in, or maybe everyone has a jumping boost—there could even be an absurd amount of Trizookas out there! (For maximum chaos, you see.)
Like other modes, Challenge uses your performance in battle to help pair you with players of a similar skill level—this time, calculating a nifty number known as your Challenge Power. This number will go up or down with each win or loss.
Not to worry—the standard Turf War and Anarchy Battle modes will still be available alongside these Challenges. Your performance in Challenges won’t affect your Rank Points in the standard Anarchy Battle mode, either.
If you win five battles within a Challenge, you’ll earn yourself a Shell-Out Token as a little bonus. May the Shell-Out Machine in the Lobby bless you with fun stuff!
Kicking things off is the New Season Challenge, celebrating the start of Sizzle Season. There will be three play windows:
  • June 2 (9:00 p.m. to 11:00 p.m. PT)
  • June 3 (5:00 a.m. to 7:00 a.m. PT)
  • June 3 (1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m. PT)
Good luck out there, Inklings and Octolings.

2023.06.02 10:08 Financial_ED_101 Unlocking the Power of High-Yield Investments

Unlocking the Power of High-Yield Investments
“Discover the potential of high-yield investments as a pathway to wealth creation. Explore various investment vehicles that offer high returns and understand how wealthy individuals use debt to capitalize on these opportunities. Learn how to identify lucrative high-yield investment options”

Investing is a powerful tool for creating wealth, but not all investments are created equal. If you're looking to maximize your returns and accelerate your path to financial success, high-yield investments may hold the key. In this article, we will delve into the world of high-yield investments, explore various investment vehicles that offer high returns, and understand how wealthy individuals leverage debt to capitalize on these opportunities. By the end, you'll have a comprehensive understanding of high-yield investments and the strategies for identifying lucrative options.
Understanding High-Yield Investments
High-yield investments are financial instruments that offer the potential for above-average returns compared to traditional investment options. These investments typically come with higher risks, but for those willing to take on the challenge, the rewards can be significant. High-yield investments can include stocks and equities, bonds and fixed-income securities, real estate investment trusts (REITs), peer-to-peer lending platforms, high-yield savings accounts, and even cryptocurrencies and digital assets.
Types of High-Yield Investment Vehicles
  1. Stocks and Equities
Investing in stocks and equities has long been recognized as a pathway to substantial wealth creation. Companies that show strong growth potential and profitability can provide investors with impressive returns. However, it's important to conduct thorough research and analysis before investing in individual stocks, as they can be volatile and subject to market fluctuations.
  1. Bonds and Fixed-Income Securities
Bonds and fixed-income securities are considered relatively safer high-yield investment options. These instruments represent loans made to governments, municipalities, and corporations. Investors earn interest on the principal amount, making them attractive for risk-averse individuals. However, bond investments are not entirely risk-free, as they can be affected by factors such as inflation and changes in interest rates.
  1. Real Estate Investment Trusts (REITs)
REITs allow investors to participate in the real estate market without directly owning physical properties. These investment vehicles pool funds from multiple investors to invest in a diverse portfolio of income-generating properties. REITs often distribute a significant portion of their income as dividends, making them an attractive option for those seeking regular cash flow.
  1. Peer-to-Peer Lending Platforms
Peer-to-peer lending platforms have gained popularity in recent years, connecting borrowers directly with lenders through online platforms. Investors can earn attractive returns by lending money to individuals or small businesses, cutting out the intermediaries and traditional banking institutions. However, it's crucial to assess the creditworthiness of borrowers and diversify investments to mitigate default risk.
  1. High-Yield Savings Accounts
High-yield savings accounts offered by certain banks and financial institutions provide higher interest rates compared to standard savings accounts. These accounts are typically backed by the Federal Deposit Insurance Corporation (FDIC) in the United States, ensuring a level of security for deposited funds. High-yield savings accounts are a low-risk option for individuals looking for stable and modest returns.
  1. Cryptocurrencies and Digital Assets
Cryptocurrencies and digital assets have emerged as an exciting and volatile investment option. With the potential for substantial returns, they have attracted many investors. However, it's important to note that the cryptocurrency market is highly speculative and subject to significant price fluctuations. Thorough research and caution are essential when investing in this asset class.
Risks Associated with High-Yield Investments
As with any investment, high-yield investments come with inherent risks that must be carefully considered.
  1. Volatility and Market Fluctuations
High-yield investments are often more volatile than traditional investment options. Fluctuations in market conditions can cause significant price swings, potentially resulting in gains or losses. Investors must be prepared for market volatility and have a long-term investment perspective.
  1. Default Risk
Certain high-yield investments, such as bonds and peer-to-peer lending, carry the risk of default. Borrowers may fail to repay their debts, leading to a loss of principal or interest payments. Thorough due diligence and risk assessment can help mitigate default risk to some extent.
  1. Liquidity Risk
Some high-yield investments, such as real estate or certain bonds, may lack liquidity. It can be challenging to sell these investments quickly without incurring losses. Investors should carefully evaluate the liquidity of their chosen investment vehicles and consider their investment horizon.
  1. Regulatory Risks
High-yield investments can be subject to regulatory changes and legal risks. Government regulations or policy shifts can affect the profitability and viability of certain investments. Staying informed about regulatory developments is crucial for investors in high-yield assets.
Strategies for Identifying Lucrative High-Yield Investment Options
To maximize the chances of success in high-yield investments, it's essential to follow proven strategies:
  1. Conducting Thorough Research and Analysis
Before investing in any high-yield opportunity, it's crucial to research and analyze the investment thoroughly. Evaluate factors such as historical performance, management team, competitive landscape, and industry trends. This information will help you make informed investment decisions.
  1. Assessing Risk-Reward Ratios
Consider the risk-reward ratio of each investment opportunity. Higher returns often come with increased risks. Evaluate the potential rewards against the level of risk you are comfortable with, ensuring alignment with your investment goals.
  1. Diversifying Investment Portfolio
Spreading investments across different asset classes and investment vehicles is a key strategy for mitigating risks. Diversification helps to reduce exposure to any single investment and can enhance the overall stability of your portfolio.
  1. Seeking Expert Advice
Consulting with financial advisors or investment professionals can provide valuable insights and guidance. Their expertise can help you navigate the complexities of high-yield investments and make informed decisions based on your financial goals.
Leveraging Debt in High-Yield Investments
The concept of leveraging involves using borrowed funds to amplify investment returns. When used wisely, leveraging can be an effective strategy to enhance profitability. However, it's crucial to exercise caution and understand the potential risks.
By utilizing debt, investors can increase their purchasing power and access higher-yield investments that would otherwise be out of reach. This strategy can be particularly advantageous when interest rates are low, allowing investors to take advantage of the interest rate differential.
Before leveraging debt, it's essential to calculate the cost of borrowing, including interest rates, fees, and potential risks. Investors must have a robust understanding of their cash flow, repayment capacity, and risk tolerance. Prudent risk management is essential to avoid overextending oneself financially.
Case Studies of Successful High-Yield Investors
To gain insights into the world of high-yield investments, let's explore a few case studies of successful individuals who have capitalized on these opportunities:
  1. John Smith: Real Estate Mogul
John Smith started with a small real estate investment and gradually built a vast portfolio of income-generating properties. By leveraging debt, he was able to acquire multiple properties and benefit from rental income and property appreciation. Smith's success is a testament to the potential of high-yield real estate investments.
  1. Sarah Johnson: Stock Market Investor
Sarah Johnson diligently researches and invests in promising stocks with high growth potential. She focuses on industries she understands and carefully analyzes financial statements, industry trends, and market conditions. By diversifying her portfolio and taking a long-term approach, she has generated substantial returns from high-yield stock investments.
  1. Mark Thompson: Cryptocurrency Enthusiast
Mark Thompson recognized the early potential of cryptocurrencies and invested in several digital assets. Through thorough research and risk management, he identified promising projects and took calculated risks. Thompson's investments in cryptocurrencies have grown significantly, making him a successful high-yield investor.
These case studies highlight the diverse strategies employed by successful high-yield investors. While their approaches may vary, they all share a commitment to research, risk management, and long-term thinking.
High-yield investments offer the potential for substantial returns and can be an effective pathway to wealth creation. However, they come with inherent risks that must be carefully evaluated. By understanding different high-yield investment vehicles, assessing risks, conducting thorough research, and diversifying your portfolio, you can maximize your chances of success.
Remember to leverage debt prudently, considering the cost of borrowing and your risk tolerance. Seek expert advice when needed and stay informed about regulatory changes. High-yield investments require diligence, patience, and a long-term perspective.
Unlock the power of high-yield investments and explore the world of opportunities that can accelerate your path to financial success.
  1. Are high-yield investments suitable for everyone? High-yield investments carry higher risks than traditional options, so they may not be suitable for everyone. It's important to assess your risk tolerance and financial goals before investing.
  2. Can high-yield investments guarantee consistent returns? High-yield investments are subject to market fluctuations and other risks. They do not guarantee consistent returns but offer the potential for higher profitability over the long term.
  3. How can I minimize the risks associated with high-yield investments? Diversification, thorough research, and risk assessment are essential for minimizing risks. Consider seeking expert advice and staying updated on market trends.
  4. Should I consider leveraging debt for high-yield investments? Leveraging debt can amplify returns, but it also carries additional risks. It's crucial to calculate the cost of borrowing and assess your financial situation before leveraging debt.
  5. What should I do if a high-yield investment doesn't perform as expected? Investments can be unpredictable, and not all high-yield opportunities will succeed. It's important to review your investment strategy, consult experts if needed, and make adjustments to your portfolio as necessary.

2023.06.02 10:04 elevenmile Weekly Ochiai's Interview Question with Naoki Yoshida Regarding Sales Projection and Simulation

General summary of the thread goes here
The following three questions discussed on how Naoki Yoshida (YoshiP) answered questions that involve the game sales, projection and predictions of how well FFXVI (or his knowledge on games today are sold.) This won't be summarized and will be given a full transcribe and translation due to how most people tend to translate pre-order or first week sales as the success of the game, but do note that I may need to do some paraphrasing as to minimize mistakes.
Ochiai: This might be a weird question to ask but since you have put so much passion and effort into creating this game, when it comes to management, how do you approach on the sales aspect here (read: translate it into profits and sales)? In terms of timing and your target audience and so on. YoshiP: So when it comes to product, when I first submit my proposal, it's a given that I would attached together with the budget documentation, like this will be the platform where the game will be released, development wise it'll take a grand total of this amount, when the game will be released, the cost for marketing and PR will take this much, and the projected profit will be around this much...these will of course be included into the documentation...but I can tell you that I wouldn't want to look at the first week sales for FFXVI (laughs).
Ochiai: (laughs) But still, I take that the board of directors came together and approved the budget you're issuing during the meeting I assume
YoshiP: Yes that was indeed the case, but when it comes to FF, there are places where you can't turn back once you get into it. but I'm being quite drastic here, and precisely because I'm a creator here, I have to be particular about the business aspect, and if I'm just creating this game out of self-satisfaction, it will definitely not connect to the next. So even though if I get told that it was a fun game, but if this doesn't translate to sales then we won't be able to create the next game. So our policy at Creative Business Unit 3 here is that at the very least, create a game where you yourself think it's interesting, and make the game earn in black numbers (※A Japanese word meaning "profit", loss of profit is "red numbers"), even if it's just a little. By doing so, we will still get money and we'll be able to work on the games we like or things that we think are interesting so I think this time.......well......well if I think this wouldn't work out, I'd actually go destroy those projects myself, like, "I'm sorry this is impossible" and then work on other projects to supplement it, and yeah I would tell them to cancel this project. I mean, I've already done this numerous times throughout my career but still, yeah since I can't turn back this time when it comes to creating this game and I told them that we'll try to sell it all out so allow me to put this amount of budget I need for this game. The answer I got from them was "Yeah, do your best"...so...yeah. But then I've been generating profits from FFXIV anyway, and manage to contribute a lot to the company and it was thanks to the Warriors of Light that made it happen, so it was hard for the company to say "no" to what I've proposed I assume (laughs).
Ochiai: Since I do not have any experience in game sales here, but you previously mentioned that if you go with the selling out pattern, then you can somewhat see the how the next implementation will be, and sometimes there are cases where this isn't what's the approach taken when it comes to sales pattern so my question is how, or at which timing would you be able to grasp on how the sales of the game will end up when it comes to today's context? YoshiP: By the way, the system of lump-sum payment is applicable only in Japan※1 but when it comes to overseas, basically if you can just "break in" if you want to. This can be weird, but they basically just go "just purchase a shelf". What this means is that, let's take a street-level store for example: when release date approaches there will be other games released along with your game, yes? You can brush all of them aside and say you want to place one huge portion of the segment to sell, say, FF16, then you can ask them how much do you need to pay them to do so, and they'll do so. They would also tell you that you can ship them as many copies as you want to and they'll return the extra copies that they couldn't sell. Therefore to see how sales would fare will be starting from...the amount of pre-orders...but when it comes to pre-orders, anyone can pre-order whenever they want to these days and not many would do so....so sales wise we'll look at the first week, to see how many have purchased the game digitally as well as from wholesale dealers, so the sell out starts there, and the rest will be predictions: How much the game has reached the hands of gamers, so predictions will be made. So we'll use those detailed data in advance and create a simulation. The reason is because we'll have proof at hand on how much the copies have reached the players. For example, for FFVII Remake, we calculate based on what we can see how many user base do we have and calculate from there, so judging from the content we have this time, we can estimate that there are certain generation base that hasn't played a single Final Fantasy game purchased this game but since we are making it a full real time action, we can calculate once on how much it has dropped in percentage for certain player base who would prefer turn based Final Fantasy games and create a simulation based on that, but ultimately the results cannot be certain until we open the lid (read: release the game) so it can be hard to tell.
1 - YoshiP's original Japanese sentence was "ちなみに買取なのは日本だけなので”. 買取 in Japanese can be different depending on the subject discussion on hand, and the standard meaning for this word is buyback, as in trading in used goods to get back some amount of money. But considering that's definitely NOT what it means... See here for more info
Ochiai: Like for example when it comes to movies, as movies run a duration of usually 2 hours when it comes to content, so in a way we can easily see how it performs, but when it comes to games, it takes time to complete them from start to finish so it's tougher to grasp how the behavior would change. So this is my personal thoughts on the matter but how do you approach the post-release sales period like for example, to see if there's a change in certain behavior, or see if your game makes it to the ranking, and by looking at these, what kind of marketing strategy would you take after the game is released? YoshiP: When it comes to sales extension, well, this can slightly different from country to country, but when it comes to Japan, I can bring up one good example which is Slam Dunk (which is recently aired in theaters).
For the generations who are fans of the show, they would be extremely interested about it, but there was a commotion when it comes to the promotion prior to its release and this caused everyone to have doubts. But once the fans watched the movie, they'd go "You better watch this movie!", or they'd go recommend those who haven't watch the movie but expressed interest in it and nothing beats that kind of attraction when it comes to what PR can do even today. Though as for me, I'd go back to my roots, and convey properly on how the game has been made and released properly, and if people find the game interesting, streamers from all around the world who will be streaming this game will convey their comments and the louder those voices are, then it might encourage others who hasn't buy the game yet to give it a try, purchase a PS5 along. Another thing I've realized that younger generations don't tend to be particular about the release date, and tend to based their purchase on what's popular within their community circles, and what everyone is playing. In fact this is what happened when it comes to Apex, Fortnite, and this is definitely what the trend is heading towards today, so what I did is to make estimations on budget, lay out the plan saying "FFXVI is coming out", and made simple approach to try getting the shop to convince gamers to get FFXVI together with their PS5 purchase. Therefore this time, I've laid out a plan on sales that would last about 18 months.2 Even when looking at the ownership ratio for PS5, there's no mistake that there will a drop in absolute ratio rather than looking at the games that are released for both PS4 and PS5.
Ochiai: Yeah, that's right.
YoshiP: I mean, yeah, it would be idiotic for anyone to not make these calculations beforehand, which is why it's important to consider the sales in a long term and extend them for as long as it can be, and then from the sales that have accumulated through these long months, we can see up to which extend people have played the game, and since we can see data in the achievements people obtain in game, we can tell how much people are stuck at certain aspects, and so on. From there we may make adjustments so that it'll be easier for people to obtain them, and we wouldn't need it to be an online game to do so. Therefore, I'm not looking at the short term sales at all.
2 - In Japan, this method is called じわ売れ (Jiwa Ure), an internet lingo literally translates to "Gradual Selling".
This is it, this ends the all the relevant info you need to know from Weekly Ochiai's talk show with Naoki Yoshida.
As YoshiP would appreciate data in seeing how FFXVI would perform, I figured that I could make some little advertisement (which I don't always do so), and if you want to help YoshiP see how his game would perform, do feel free to make a visit on my Youtube channel which I'll stream the game on Day 1. But only do so if you're:
A) Not planning to get the game just yet B) Doesn't mind spoilers
While there's no guarantee that YoshiP would even look at it, but at least the data will always be there, so please feel free. Of course, watching other streamers are fine as well, but the main point here is to give YoshiP the data he needs.
That would be all. I apologize if the translation doesn't seem coherent, but hopefully it gets the point across.
