Hi fellow gamers,
I'm a gay latino man living in Canada(EST not that it matters). Looking for nice people to play with and maybe develop a friendship over time. I play mostly on Xbox. But I do have a switch where I mostly play single player games(pokemon). On Xbox a play most of the time to Elder scrolls online(ESO) and warframe. I also play Outriders. I'm trying out some games recently such as Anthem. I just started Destiny 2 not long ago. And I play other single player games. I have Game Pass so I'm happy to try other games.
I like story driven games. Games where there's exploration involved and Action/Adventure.
I'm very shy at first but that'll go away quickly.
I speak English. Spanish and French In no particular order but I do have a Small accent when I speak english tho.(it never caused any problem 😆)
Feel free to DM here or on Xbox. My gamertag on Xbox is: Hades358

2023.06.05 12:33 Cultural_Edge5086 OMG OMG сайт Omg darknet Омг онион

How to find the OMG store in Tor browser

The site is located on the darknet, so in search of an official mirror, you should look in the shadow directories. The entrance to OMG is usually located at the top of the screen when you go to the main address. To launch a link through Tor, you need a darknet domain zone. Such a mirror will provide privacy during your interaction with the trading platform. You can always find more information on the official OMG forum. There you will find up-to-date information if the main site is down.

How not to use the original OMG onion mirror

In order not to use a mirror, you need to bookmark your favorite link by clicking on the star stencil in the TOR browser. You can always support the project by making a donation in bitcoin. This can also be done from your btc crypto wallet. You may have noticed that in the OMG domain there are random numbers and symbols obtained like in roulette. This is the feature of the onion network — name generation is random. Therefore, links to OMG in the torus look like this. This ensures a stable anonymous connection between all participants in the trading platform.

What are the official OMG darkmarket mirrors

First of all, OMG!OMG! onion — this is the most popular working combination for site access. It is the fastest and safest on the Internet. Use it and look for alternatives only when you can’t enter the store using it. The analysis showed that there are six main mirrors and one main address. Which address to use is up to you, but we advise you to find a working mirror on the OMG darknet forum. If the main address is disabled, you can always access the alternative working link OMG!OMG! The darknet is distributed mainly in the onion project, so you should look for a link through shadow search engines that do not have censorship. The official OMG website is located at OMG!OMG! Be careful — in Google, Yandex, you can find fraudulent sites. Therefore, you should trust only trusted sources so as not to fall under the influence.

Correct link to OMG darknet

Using drugs is dangerous for your health!
In most developed countries, many types of drugs are legalized, but in Russia, the purchase is possible only on the Internet using the OMG darkmarket.
In order to always have access to the site, you need to download the Tor Browser. You can download Tor for free on the website of our partners (link in the comments). Use only official apps and don't click on questionable links.

Bitcoin exchange is possible through qiwi, through a bank (Sberbank, Tinkoff, Alfa, VTB), through a SIM card (MTS, TELE2, Beeline, Megafon). You can replenish bitcoin on OMG bot in any convenient way. If you want your transaction to be successful, you should pay attention to choosing a bitcoin exchange point. To view the rating of the exchanger, click «catalog». There you can also find the rating of stores. Verified exchanger — this is a special status and most likely it is a highly rated crypto exchange. You can replenish your personal account in any way indicated on the site. You can also deposit OMG through LocalBitcoins. To do this, you need to purchase coins on the exchange, and then send the transaction to the updated wallet of the trading platform.

Login to OMG!OMG! onion via TOR

The official OMG forum will help you find any products using the original link for tor. But what if you couldn't find the item you bought? In case of problems with the address, treasure or underweight, the buyer is obliged to open a dispute within 12 hours from the date of purchase. The OMG store reserves the right to refuse to consider a dispute in case of flooding, spam, insults or off-topic requests.
1. Address problem.
In case of error, inaccuracy of the address or lack of photos, the buyer can ask «Question on the order» or open «Dispute» The courier will definitely clarify the data in the near future.
2. Not found

If you were unable to find your item, open a dispute, attach clear photos taken during daylight hours from the perspective of a miner, describe the search process, at what time of the day you were looking for the treasure. The cladman's answer will be given no later than 24 hours from the moment of the request.
Compensation is not due in the following cases:
3. Underweight. Questions about the quality of the goods.

2023.06.05 12:33 yoni_boushnak MPC live 2 crackle when master is moved?

Hey Guys, I've had my new mpc live 2 for about a week now, testing the hell out of it to see if it fits me well.
I love this thing so far. Really intuitive, sweet material and overall feel. Now i realized, that when i'm moving the master velocity poti, there is a slight crackle. It reminds me to some crackling sounds older (in terms of often used and not treated well) DJ Mixers do when you move around the gain while playing a song. But it only occurs when the song is playing, oldish mixers do it even when theres nothing going on on the channels.
Does any of you experience this too? Am i misregarding some physical laws here? I kind of feel unsure, wether it's just a common thing or if i should replace / give back my unit. I couldnt find anything like this on the Internet and i don't want to believe i am only person that has realized this and made it an actual topic on a forum.

2023.06.05 12:33 ThrowRAicy12 Has anyone actually FIRE'd sucessfully? Random thoughts on FIRE.

I'm 24, earn 90k/year+super, have about 50K in cash, 25K in random shares (was 45K lol but I was one of those noob investors during COVID and learnt some valuable lessons).
I am a bit torn between buying an IP, maybe through a buyer's agent and getting some skin in the property game, or going the ETF route and trying to FIRE that way.
I'll note that for now, I'm perfectly happy renting/rentvesting (if I bought an IP), as I foresee a few location changes over the next 5-10 years and don't want to be stuck in one place. So the property route would be strictly for investment purposes and to have equity in a place that i can draw if I did one day want to purchase my own place.
So, when thinking about my financial decisions and what I should do, I had a thought, and it might seem dumb but I'm curious on other's take and other's successful stories regarding FIRE.
My thought process is along the lines of FIREing is becoming increasingly popular, there's 200K in this subreddit alone. I feel there's lots of people in their late 20's/30's trying to really achieve their FIRE goal, at least a lot more than ever before due to the internet and the knowledge that newbies like myself can gain and learn about FIREing. So in 20 years, we could see a lot of people actual achieve this and retire early.
So because of all this increased demand for achieving FIRE, if we're all trying to FIRE, then doesn't our FIRE goal become ever increasing and will take longer and longer to achieve than initially planned? The costs of living are determined (in it's simplest form) by the demand and supply for goods and services. If there is more and more people achieving FIRE, and holding millions of dollars in ETF's, will this not mean that we all have more money to spend, and thus increasing demand for goods and services, thus increase the price of said good and services, and therefore increase our necessary FIRE target as the costs of retiring increase (essentially I'm saying won't this increase inflation rapidly?).
The way that capitalism sort of works is that not everyone can be wealthy. That's how the game goes. So what happens when an ever-growing percentage of our population is now wealthy and FIRE'd? Currently about 5% of people retired by 45-49, what happens if this gets to 10%? 15%? because more people are FIREing?
One of the only solutions I really thought to this is continued increase of migration to keep the balance of well off/wealthy vs middle class. Or alternatively, there will just end up being a massive gap between well off/wealthy and middle class/lower class.
Anyway, this is just a bit of a ramble as I try and decide which path to take my finances to achieve FIRE (property, ETF's, a mixture etc etc.)
If you have successfully FIRE'd, I'd love to hear your journey, and what your thoughts are on whether your think your withdrawal rates are sustainable for 20-40 years?
Or, if anyone has any thoughts on what they think FIREing looks like in 20-40 years, feel free to share, I might be completely on the wrong track with my thought process.
TL;DR: If more and more people FIRE and it becomes mainstream, won't this increase inflation rapidly (more money in economy to spend as more people achieve $1m+ net worths) and therefore delay everyone's FIRE plans continually? Not everyone can be wealthy in a capitalist world.

2023.06.05 12:33 starmoons77 How do you play with your puppy without him/her biting you?

I have a 5 months old puppy who AMAZINGLY plays with my partner. He recently really bonded with him and when they play together it looks so fun, he never bites my partner just goes after a toy and they can play for a very long time without any biting accidents but when it comes to me it is a whole different story I feel as if he doesnt like playing with me. I tried copying everything my partner does but without a success. Everytime I pick up a toy to play with him I try to make the toy interesting but no matter what I do he goes immediately after my hands/legs/clothes and I cant take him away from me, I tried time outs, saying „NO” firmly, taking other toys but its just not working i think he thinks of me as his personal chew toy that he can rough up and mess with. I have never let him bite me everytime he did it when he was younger I was making sure that he knew that this behavior is inapppropriate and at the beginning he listened but now he just completely ignores my commands and does whatever he pleases. I am his main caregiver because i dont work at the moment so i spend all day with him because my partner works long hours. I train him, feed him, take him on walks and yet he just seems to not like me at all. I am so frustrated because like I mentioned I spend a lot of time with him and I want to be able to play with him without bleeding and pain.

2023.06.05 12:33 syf3r Want to Improve? Do Code Reviews

If you're currently part of a team, consider volunteering to review code, particularly pull requests. Challenge yourself by asking, "Why was it written this way?" Make it a game to spot things that other reviewers may have missed.
If you're not very familiar with the code, tiis tiis lang. Eventually, when you become more acquainted with the code, you'll realize how a lot of devs suck. Ika nga, code reviews can be measured by the number of "wtf" comments. So, you know you're improving when by the number of wtf comments you're generating. (By wtf comments, I don't mean you literally write 'wtf'. But writing something nicely but it really means, "what the fuck is this?!")
One personal story I have on this: I had a colleague that submitted a pull request. The code looked clean, and no one else had commented. It was all approval. However, I noticed a small part of the code that didn't seem right. It appeared correct at first glance, but I ran it through different edge cases and found one where it would fail. The comment I wrote was the only one there, and it felt satisfying to spot the subtle bug.
It's important to write things nicely as everyone has an ego. Learning how to provide comments that convey the truth without offending others is a skill worth developing. It will prove useful as you progress in your career and start dealing with big shots in a company.
On the other hand, if you're just starting out, such as in college or as a junior developer, go find code on the 'Net. Code found in blogs and git repositories are usually well-written, making it challenging to question. However, if you can find mediocre or poorly written code, that can be more helpful. Good code doesn't teach you much unless it aligns with what you're trying to achieve. Poor code, on the other hand, teaches you what not to do.
If you consistently find yourself reading bad code or constantly cleaning up after others, it may be time to consider finding a new company. It's likely that you've outgrown your current environment. If you're the most skilled developer in the team, your growth opportunities may be limited. While it feels good to be the authority or the best, remember that the world is vast, and eventually, you'll need to step out and face new challenges. Either you continue advancing or you stagnate.

2023.06.05 12:33 Ls400blake What does the physical switch on my Gigabyte 3080 Gaming OC 12gb actually do?

So I have had my card for over a year and never really played around with the switch before. I stupidly bought it when I didn't really know much about a components at the time and just went for it because of a deal at the time.
Whilst playing my games, I will occasionally have MSI afterburner open just to turn the fan speed down sometimes as I feel like it sits too high for the temperatures. Apart from that I do not do any OC manually myself. I did try and put it in "silent" mode but truly felt like it did no difference regarding fan speed even when I have MSI shut to let it do it's own thing.
I currently only run a 1080p setup but will be changing to 1440p soon so trying to understand things a bit more.

(googling this only seems to give me videos telling me to learn how to OC)

2023.06.05 12:33 Hisprecioussecret Boyfriend having the high possibility to immigrate to US & I don't know what to do when tht happens

A short background about me and my boyfriend. We're both in highschool (going to the last grade in junior high), me and him are currently together for almost 8 months. Some of you might not see this or take it seriously but I just need advices because I really don't know what to do with how I feel. He's a really understanding boyfriend. He'd always do his best to be there for me especially when I'm having a breakdown. He's sweet, loving, caring, and the clingy type. Meanwhile, I'm the crybaby in the relationship due to past traumas in my past relationships. I'm caring as well, I'd sometimes baby him since he's a few months younger than me. Anywho, The night when school ended, he told me that him and his family will be immigrating to US (I live somewhere in Asia). A high possibility that they'll immigrate there. I cried, 3 days straight after hearing the news. I felt- empty, depressed, my heart felt heavy that time too. 3 days straight, I silently cried in my room so that my parents wouldn't hear me crying. Now, I've stopped crying since I'm reserving it for when he tells me if they're actually leaving to US or not. I ranted to him that night, telling him how heartbroken I was and how I would drop down in my knees and beg just for him to stay. I wholeheartedly love him, he has a special place in my heart that letting him go hurts like hell. I really don't want him to leave but I can't do anything about that, especially since only his parents still aren't aware of his relationship with me (I also included in the rant how he still hasn't told his parents and how it makes me overthink about things). I happened to tell him that I will wait till he comes back from the US, he told me he'll wait too. But is it wrong to doubt him when he said that? Because I'm doubting him a little. I'm pretty sure he's also doubting me when I said I'll wait, but I can actually wait even if it takes him for a decade to come back. (I'm actually pretty committed and loyal when it comes to seriously loving a person) He was my first serious, healthy relationship and the first person whom I actually love and isn't a person who I met online, I'm very much committed to him. So it really has a huge impact on me. Right now, I'm preparing for the worst. Knowing he has a high possibility to leave, I don't know what to do when the time comes for him to do so. I've told 3 of my friends about my current situation and one of them told me I should forget about the immigration thing and spend my remaining time with him. But he's out of town right now, he's in the capital city getting ready to be interviewed. All I can do is chat, I want to call him since I have his number but I'm scared (mostly shy) to. My thoughts still haven't cleared up yet, it's still a mess. Any advice on what to do or something? I'd really appreciate the advices especially since I'm still quite a young person who's learning and developing.

2023.06.05 12:33 marinebeholder0 My ex is trying to control what I do. Should I give in?

Backstory: My ex boyfriend (17m at the time) broke up with me (18f) 2 months ago. It was a clean breakup until a couple of weeks ago when I saw on his ig story that he was on a date with someone else and when I asked about it (I asked in a friendly manner as we were friends at the time) and he replied with complete disrespect towards me and my feelings. The next night I went out drinking with some friends and while intoxicated, I sent him a voice message calling him some harsh names with reason (in my defence everything I said was completely true, the names were just to add salt to the wound and to show him how me made me feel in the previous conversation). A few days later I then asked for my stuff back from his house and he once again replied with something completely disrespectful.
We have had a trip coming up to see a concert in the middle of August with two friends of his (I’m also friends with them). We arranged this way before the breakup and now he has just decided for me that I can’t go to it. He has his friend trying to persuade me not to go saying they will give me my money back and I can buy tickets separately if I want to go that bad. I have wanted to go to this concert for an extremely long time and this is my one chance to. If I do buy separate tickets for the train and concert it will just end up costing me more money as we booked everything as early as we could to make it cheaper. The only reason that I wouldn’t go is because I don’t want to make everyone else uncomfortable or awkward.
I am obviously really angry at my ex for trying to control what I do or don’t do when we aren’t even together anymore.
What should I do?

2023.06.05 12:33 ezoneclap Stop finding life purpose in a game!

Lately i was just scrolling and cheking the sub a little bit here and there and noticed so many complaints about endgame and so on.
First of all it is completely "your" fault for spending 100$+ on a game which has yet not released. You can just easily wait to be around 60$, or what the hell you can wait for it on discout by the end of the year.
Second, game is not, and should not be your life. Grind other stuff which will be usefull. So in my opinion if you pay, lets say 60$ for a game and spend 30,40 hours into it its money well spent. We see so many SP games out there in range of 20,30 hours and winning (deserved) GOTY awards and so. No game is meant to be substitute for your life. So stop waisting other people's time and expecting to have 1000+ hours in game, that is actually up to you not developer task to provide you so much content for 60$.
This is not meant to insult anybody, but if you wanna feel like you spent your money visely, stop preordering games for 100$ and encourage developers to harm more and more gaming market. Do some class, earn a new skill for 100$, and play games on discount, HAVE FUN, drop the game when is not fun any more and stop searching for feeling of accomplishment in game because it WILL NOT fulfill you.

2023.06.05 12:33 Astrovite Super vivid dream of throwing a house party.

The dream started with me talking to this girl from work, she was telling me about how I should throw a party. Then I remember driving home at night and seeing like 100 people outside my house, waiting to be let in. I thought "wtf" in the back of my mind. I then make my way through the crowd to the front door. I remember saying something along the lines of "Do not slam into each other and break stuff, and "if you f*ck with my dogs, I will beat the sh*t out of you"
(I've never actually "beaten the sh*t out of anyone" but if I see someone hurting an animal that would change).
So I unlock the door and walk inside. The first thing I noticed was the sound of the microwave being on. I walk into the kitchen and see that there is food in it and it's been heating it. At this point I like recalled putting it in there before leaving that morning (I didn't actually dream that part). But it had like 6 number slots instead of the usual 3 so my guess is that I added too many zeros when I put it in.
Another thing I noticed was a TON of bubbles all over the floor outside the kitchen. I followed the bubbles and realized it was coming from my dog's room (they have their own room). I instantly panicked and opened their door. They were in there submerged in the bubbles. There was some kind of pressure washing thing that had been on that was producing the bubbles. I turned it off and noticed how easy the button was to trigger. I surmised that someone left it on the floor and the dogs bumped it and it turned on.
I pulled the dogs out of the bubbles. My beagle had shrank by like 50% and he looked SO SAD. I gave him a hug and inspected my other 2 dogs. They were seemingly fine.
The next thing I remember, I was in the basement listening to some band playing. There were tons of people. This security guard kept coming up to me and talking to me and I'd jump down from the ledge and accidentally land on his shoes every time. He wasn't talking to me about anything bad I was doing though. I'm guessing my dream self had hired him because he was reporting stuff to me.
The last time he talked to me he said something along the lines of "Hey you need to come with me man, someone is trying to diss you" (I don't think I've ever actually used the word "diss" so idk). Oh and he also told me to stop stepping on his shoes every time he talked to me.
As we walked up stairs he explained what he meant. He said that some people of the party claimed I would pay for anything, so they all went out to get food for themselves. Like they knew that's not what I meant and they tried it anyways.
I went looking around the party and noticed all the people I actually knew were absorbed into their own groups and having fun. I felt kind of sad by this because I had been standing alone in the basement. I felt abandoned in a way, if that makes sense. I thought at least surely the friend from work would hang out with me but no.
As I walked around, only one person acknowledged me. They patted me on the back as I walked by. The weirdest thing is that I think it was myself. Like a separate me. I didn't take an active look at them but I did notice they were wearing a shirt that I wear a lot IRL.
I made my way over to a makeshift bar. The seats were all full. I looked at the bartenders and they were talking about how something had finally arrived. One of them then excitedly held up what I think was a $3 bill. (yes I know that's not a real thing but still). I woke up pretty much after that.
Honestly as I was typing this out I found some meaning in it. I think it related to my fears of being alone. The other night I had a dream that I was at work and everyone was a different person except 2. One of those 2 being the same girl from the post dream. The 2 who were the same were both telling me that they're leaving. And I was so scared of being the only one left. That everyone I knew was replaced.
I feel like the post dream ties into that a lot. That I feel like there is nothing about me that people want to experience. So I'm always witnessing the conversations but never a part of them.
And maybe I should just forget all of them because the only person who noticed me was quite possibly myself. Aside from the cool security guard.

2023.06.05 12:32 intelligreentech An overview of selecting the most suitable Office Air Purifier

An overview of selecting the most suitable Office Air Purifier

Breathing clean and fresh air is essential for maintaining a healthy and productive work environment. With the increasing concern about air pollution, many offices are turning to air purifiers to improve indoor air quality. But with so many available options, how do you choose the most suitable office air purifier? The article here tries to find a clear answer.
Understanding what you need
Consider the size of your office space, the number of employees, and any existing air quality issues you want to address. This initial step will help you determine the capacity and features required in an Office Air Purifier.
Filter Types and Efficiency
Air purifiers come with different filters, and understanding their efficiency is crucial. Activated carbon filters excel at eliminating odours and harmful gases. Electrostatic filters use an electric charge to trap particles. Consider the filter types of an industrial air purifier that suit your office's specific needs and ensure they have high-efficiency ratings for optimal air purification.
Noise Levels
In an office setting, it's essential to consider the noise level produced by an air purifier. Air purifiers can be noisy, disrupting concentration and productivity. Look for cleaners with low noise levels, usually measured in decibels (dB). Choosing models with noise levels below 50 dB is recommended, as they won't cause any significant disturbances in the workplace.
Additional Features
Air purifiers often come with additional features that can enhance their functionality. Some models have built-in sensors that detect air quality and automatically adjust the purification settings accordingly. Others may offer remote control options, programmable timers, or Wi-Fi connectivity for easy control and monitoring. Consider these features based on your preferences and the convenience they bring to your office environment.
Maintenance and Filter Replacement
Regular maintenance and filter replacement is crucial for the optimal performance of an Office Air Purifier. Look for models with easily accessible filters that can be replaced or cleaned without much hassle. Consider the cost and availability of replacement filters, as they need to be changed periodically to ensure the air purifier works effectively.
Budget Considerations
Lastly, determine your budget for an air purifier. Prices of an industrial air purifier can vary significantly based on brand, features, and the size of the unit. While investing in a good-quality air purifier is essential, finding a model that fits your budget is equally crucial. Compare prices, read customer reviews, and consider the long-term benefits when deciding.
Final Thoughts
Selecting the most suitable office air purifier requires careful consideration of your specific needs, filter types and efficiency, CADR and ACH ratings, noise levels, additional features, maintenance requirements, and budget considerations. By evaluating these factors, you can find an air purifier that meets your office's air quality goals, creating a healthier and more productive workspace for everyone.

2023.06.05 12:32 sober2ndthought Where the NDP campaign went wrong

This is a follow up to my previous post.
The NDP campaign wasn't horrible. Danielle is reduced to a very small majority. If this was any other province with multiple parties this would likely have been a minority government. But because it was two it's a very tiny majority government. But it was also a missed opportunity. They didn't win in an election they could have won.
If you take a look at the polls there was a moment in the second week where the NDP led. That in my opinion is where things derailed.
Successful Campaigns are actually very formulaic:
Incumbent have it easy. They are the default choice because that's who people voted in last time and you really don't have to demonstrate what a government under you looks like peope see it. Incumbents can generally follow two paths:
  1. Promote all the good things they've done and how the challenger poses a risk to the food they've done. Think Trudeau Bus Ad or Morning Again in America.
  2. Things are bad but they could get way worse if you elect the opponent. The UCP used this strategy and Liberals used it against Harper in 2004.
Challengers have it harder:
  1. Convince people that we need change
  2. Convince people that change must be now and you're the change we need.
The problem for most challenger campaigns is that they make a great case for why we need change they often forget to tell people why they should be the that change.
That's where the NDP failed. The NDP campaign successfully convinced people that we need change in Alberta. But they failed to convince people that the change should be them and now.
Comparable campaign
Imagine it's the day after the election. The incumbent party is plagued by scandal and infighting. You're the challenger and you're running against the tide of jurisdiction ideology. The incumbent won re-election but is significantly weakened.
If this sounds like I'm talking about the NDP campaign it would be safe bet but I'm actually talking about Harper after 2004. He faced many of the same challenges as the NDP did. The only difference was he came from the right and the NDP from the left.
  1. Canadians were generally more Liberal and comfortable with liberal policies
  2. Harper was saddled with the legacy of George Bush and neo evangelical social conservatism
  3. Harper was saddled with his own support for Iraq war and anti - same sex marriage policies
The 2004 and 2006 case studies for anyone looking to unseat the Tories from the left in Alberta. So what can be learned from it.
Define or be defined
This is where I think the NDP campaign went wrong.
The entire campaign was digging up dirt on Danielle. They focused so much on attacking Danielel they failed to define people what an NDP government would look like.
But it inevitably overshadowed any other message the NDP has especially about what an NDP government looked like.
This opened the door to the UCP defining what an NDP government would look like. Their solution was effectively to scare Albertans into thinking the NDP was a genuine threat to the province.
Nothing represents this better than the Danielle Smith Weather Vane sign. It was great initially as it softened the support for the UCP. In the first week we saw a shift towards the NDP in the election. But in the second week replace it with a positive message like this is what we'd do in healthcare, third week education, fourth week cost of living.
Keep it as simple and easy to understand messages. For example healthcare:
  1. Picture of a torn up healthcare cards and the large phrase healthcare should not look like this
  2. Side this what the NDP would do on healthcare: replace cards with one on your Alberta driver licence or Alberta ID, new money for healthcare, hire more doctors and nurses, etc.
One of the impacts of defining yourself is that it negates the impact of your opponents attacks. Good example look at Harper in 2004 and 2006:
  1. In 2004 he ran a campaign which tried to convince people the Liberals were corrupt and you saw halfway through he pulled ahead but he forgot to tell people who he was and what he stood for.
Liberals in turn defined him as being a threat to our civil liberties, with a hidden agenda which included send troops into Iraq.
  1. 2006 Harper ran a policy a day campaign. Focused entirely on demonstrating what an CPC government would do. This allowed Harper to define himself before the Liberals had a chance to define him.
Liberals still ran attacks again which failed miserably and the Liberals had to even pull one.
Another example was Obama 2008. He denied himself early as a post racial candidate which protected him when his pastors sermons came out and the picture of him Kenya came out.
The pastor sermons could have doomed his campaign but because he had already defined himself early he successfully distanced himself in his race speech. A speech most people never watched but narrative of a post racial candidate existed it was already set so just saying he gave a speech on race wa enough to give him credibility on it.
Don't run away from yourself
One of the moments that made me cringe was seeing Rachel Notley in Blue next to Danielle Smith in blue in the debate. The visual was effectively hey we're the same. Which isn't the message you want send when you are saying Danielle is crazy.
You are the NDP deal with the fact it comes with some bagge. Being the UCP also comes with baggage.
Baggage can be overcome look at your cousins in BC. In 2017 they had the baggage of NDP govrement of the 90s and now are effectively a stable governing party.
Better option would have been to stick to a message which defines your government in light of your ideology. In other words play up the positives of your brand don't run away from it.
Running away from your brand actually gives credit to the incumbents attacks. It paints a picture of a group of people with a hidden agenda who cannot be trusted.
Again I point to Harper in 2006. He didn't run his campaign like he was a Liberal. Instead his policy announcements were from the right but not threating:
  1. GST cut
  2. Child Daycare tax credit
  3. Transit tax credit
  4. Fitness tax credit
  5. TFSAs
  6. Child sports tax credit
Find the equivalent from the left. Albertans want positive change too. They want something done about cost of living, state of healthcare or education. Some ideas to play up:
  1. Regulating auto insurance rates and electricity rates
  2. Building schools or hospitals
  3. Improving transit
  4. Deal with impacts of climate change
  5. Fund public services
Two major oversights in this campaign here. The back drop to this campaign was literally massive forest fires. Which could be balme on climate change and were made worse by UCP cuts.
The other one as the spike in auto insurance and energy prices in Alberta. This campaign ad writes itself:
  1. When UCP came to power Alberta had lower auto insurance rates than BC. While British Columbians have seen their cost for auto insurance fall albertans have seen year over year increases while insurance companies deny our claims.
  2. Under a new NDP government we will bring back auto insurance regulation and ensure that Albertans are protected and pay their fair share.
This great message:
  1. Everyone knows BC has an NDP government and if their rates are falling the NDP can take credit for it
  2. It offers a genuine plan which Albertans are requesting.
Don't expect people to find your policies
Because they will not.
Most voters want your vision and policies to be given to them. They want them communicated to them in a way that is simple and easy to understand.
The idea is that they will go to your website to find the policies is ludicrous. You need to put those front and centre.
Best idea take the signs you saw on the street. Fine week one focus on attacking Smith. But week 2, 3 and 4 turn them into a policy a week idea;
For example week 2: picture of torn healthcare cards message healthcare shouldn't look like this and list of the things you'd do in healthcare like tying healthcare cards to driebes licence and Alberta IDs
Week three could be education week four could be cost of living. Etc.
Positive messages do work
Think back to most campaigns where a challenger took on an incumbent. The ones where you are successful you tend to have a message of hope and forward looking:
  1. Masters of our own house - Quebec Liberals 1960
  2. Chose forward - Liberals 2015
  3. Stand up for Canada - Conservatives 2006
  4. Hope. Change. - Obama 2008

2023.06.05 12:32 mamasnanas Angelina vs redemption

After watching the final episodes, I'm left with a question. Why was Angelina not redeemed when certain others were? Egan is redeemed, seemingly at that moment on the plane. He did many unredeemable things throughout the series, until the end when he decided to "help everyone else."
Angelina definitely did many unredeemable things. She did them, though, under the belief that God was telling her to. Why does she deserve to die, then? Also, she totally could have been mentally unstable, "crazy," thinking God was telling her to do all of these things and to follow this path. That's totally unfair, then, for her to die.
I'm totally not an Angelina fan, but this ending for her really bothered me.

2023.06.05 12:32 Boomeru8 Flights to Fiji way cheaper than Papeete or Bora Bora

trying to book a flight for this thanksgiving break to a pacific island and my three main options are flying into NAN, PPT, or BOB from LAX. What I’ve noticed though, is that the flight to NAN is only 650$ despite being way longer (almost twelve hours) and business is 3500$ and then to PPT or BOB its nearly 3600$ in basic economy (points redemption are the same for both in economy - 40K) Is there any reason for this? Do yall think the cheaper prices for Fiji mean we should just go there, or are the hotels more expensive and it’ll end up cancelling out when compared to the others. 4 people btw

2023.06.05 12:32 Spicy_Chat JOI Script: Explode In My Mouth

Hey, handsome.
You know what's been on my mind?
Your throbbing cock, and how I'd love to feel it on my lips.
Don't act all coy. We both know you've been craving this.
So let's not waste any more time.
Strip down and get that cock of yours hard for me.
That's it. Now start stroking it, slow and easy.
Feel that pleasure building up?
Imagine that's my mouth, my tongue swirling around your cock.
Think about me taking you deeper into my mouth.
Picture me taking you all in, my lips sliding up and down your shaft.
Can't you just imagine the feeling of exploding in my mouth?
Feels good, doesn't it? I bet you're about to cum.
But not yet, babe. This party has just started.
Let's go again. This time, imagine the grand finale.
I'm going to count down from 10, and when we reach zero, you're going to blow that hot load for me.
Ready? Let's do this...
10, 9, 8... Feel that rush.
7, 6, 5... You're so close, I can practically taste it.
4, 3, 2... Hold it right there...
1... Now, baby, explode for me!
Shoot that hot load in my mouth.
Mmm... can you imagine it? Filling my mouth with your cum.
I'm swallowing every drop, savoring your taste.
Wow... Watching you let go like that... So incredibly hot.

2023.06.05 12:32 throwloveaway07 I'm deeply in love with my former roommate/SF

My post history is a bit revealing but I don't care care anymore.
I love him.
When I wake up next to him it's the best part of my day.
I've confessed to him that I have feelings for him and he didn't know what to say. I tried to cut ties but I can't, he's the only happy thing in my life right now.
So if you ever read this W, I wanted to tell you. I love you. I think you're one of the persons I've loved most on this earth. You're the only man I ever saw myself have a future with. I'd even move to the countryside for you. I don't care that you're deeply introverted, every time you smile I feel the sun blooming in my chest. How can you you be so kind to me ? I cried on you so much, I tried to cut ties and you cried for me.
I want to confess how much I love you softly, in your ear, only for you. Every time you lie down next to me, every time your hand is on my thigh, every time you touch my hair, the words want to leave my mouth but they fade out like smoke each time I try.
I know you have some affection for me but not to the extent I have. And that's fine, I can't force you.
But I've been wondering if I'll ever feel something like this for someone again. It happened once in 26 years. Do I have to wait till I'm fifty then to find this again ? And hope that, this time, they'll love me ?

What kind of fucked up shit is this ?

So, for now I'll love you softly. A few nights a week. A few days a month. Until you're tired of me. Until you realise how much I depend on you. Until I have nothing else to give.
I love you.

2023.06.05 12:32 juniper_and_thornzz a little confused

so I (f, 20) lived with my great grandparents for about 5 years on and off throughout elementary. a couple of my uncles also lived with us as well, one of them, we’ll call him Chris was a weirdo. I didn’t realize it until years later when I told my sister “yeah i don’t think i’ve been a victim of grooming” and she said “you never know🤷🏻‍♀️” and then i remembered my pervert uncle. I was around 10-12 from all that i can remember. He had a habit of singling me out and inviting me into his room to talk or show me random things in there. He would randomly buy me snacks and sweet stuff. I wasn’t really allowed to have a bunch of sweet stuff when i was a kid cause i was thinner and they wanted to keep me that way. so it was easy to just accept it. i remember liking conversations we would have and the attention. he was never allowed to close the door though. if i came in his room everyone else would check on us and keep the door open. i wasn’t allowed to be in the kitchen when he was in there and i remember one day he tried to talk to me and i started screaming at him to leave me alone. i don’t know what triggered this. i don’t know if he touched me or anything i just can’t remember. this happened when we were in the living room just me and him. he walked away fast and we didn’t really talk after that. some time later a huge fight broke out and another person in the house revealed that he molested them when they were around the age i was and called his mom out for defending him. he also had a habit of coming in the room when i tried to get dressed/waiting by the open door until i got dressed or when i would use the restroom. it made me feel disgusted with myself. i would have trouble showering cause i was so disgusted by my body. it obviously affected me but is it grooming if i can’t remember if anything sexual happened to me? like i don’t remember him molesting me it’s like a blackout in my brain. nothing. i don’t really know what classifies as grooming. i think it still effects me cause a guy once put his hand on my thigh and it gave me a panic attack for like 30 minutes when i was in public. i couldn’t stop crying until a family member came to get me. i felt uncomfortable for a long time whenever i was around older men. i would get sick to my stomach and panicky. Again, was this grooming he was doing to me or am i dramatic? i feel dumb asking.

2023.06.05 12:32 LifeBonder_Amrita Be your own priority and focus on yourself!

Be your own priority and focus on yourself!

Hey LifeBonder Buddies, Do you spend enough time for yourself and your well-being?

We often tend to forget about taking care of ourselves. We make the people, around us, our priority and always take care of them. In this process, we forget that we should first take care of ourselves and make ourselves our priority. If we are not happy, if we are not healthy, there is no chance that we can take care of others.
So, today I would like to discuss that you should focus on yourself as you are the person responsible for your life.
In this busy world, we find it difficult to take out enough time for our family or friends. One may argue that it must be a waste of time to think about themselves or do something for themselves despite this time crunch. We often do not consider that we also deserve to be taken care of and we should be the first person to think about ourselves. I believe that once you start focusing on yourself, you start realizing how can you make yourself a priority.
So, what can be some easy ways to focus on yourself?
  1. It is important to spend time doing things that we love. Fix a monthly plan to explore and do things that you enjoy. You can go and watch a movie, paint if you love it, indulge in singing, read books and more. We should allow some time for our hobbies or passion. A hobby helps us to grow as a person and understand ourselves.
  2. We should all make a self-care plan. We should focus on our needs and make a routine. This might not be something that you are used to doing but trying out a few healthy habits can be beneficial. Meditating, doing some physical exercise, eating healthy, etc can be added to your self-care plan to keep yourself fit and healthy.
  3. We must listen to ourselves and realize our needs. Keeping a journal can be beneficial in this perspective. When we practice journaling, it becomes easy to track our minds and have self-realization.
  4. We all have fallen into the trap of comparing ourselves to others. Why should we underestimate and treat ourselves badly? We should know our strengths and weakness and should never try to be like others. We should compare ourselves only to our old selves and measure our growth.
The idea of focusing on yourself is not as selfish as it sounds. It is the most amazing thing that we can treat ourselves with. It is high time that we make ourselves our priority. What are the ways that you follow to focus on yourself? Let us know in the comments. Have a Mindful Monday!

2023.06.05 12:32 sjames1980 Finally! I'm done (for now)

Sorry for the pointless post, but I don't have anyone else to tell apart from you guys, my wife's "hmm" just didn't quite cut it, she's not been to Amur, she doesn't understand the trauma I've been through.
So finally, after owning this game since day one, and restarting a new save when hard mode was added (I was halfway through Amur) I am 100% caught up on everything! All contracts, all tasks, gold medal in every contest (except the bugged one in Maine that looks like it will never get fixed) and all those stupid trials done, yesssss, get in.
Now what to do with my life until season 10 drops? Hmm, I might replay Michigan
