2023.06.10 05:01 xJvlivsx [CROSS-POST] [Corpus Linguistics] What programming language should I learn for corpus linguistics?

I'm a linguistics graduate and I do most of my research on corpus-based discourse analysis. I've previously used very basic tools: transcribing my interviews directly on a word doc., pasting my corpus on Sketch Engine and using the available tools based on my objectives. That's all fine and dandy, but I want to get onto other subjects, such as large data from media (news outlets, twitter, etc.). I also want to see what other tools for data analysis I can use besides concordance, keywords and N-grams, I think getting familiar with programming will make it easier to consider other routes of analysis.
I also feel like I'll fall behind on new methodologies if I don't start taking the role of techonology and programming more seriously, especially on a field born from computational linguistics. Most of my teachers where old-school lexicographers who traveled from town to town doing direct interviews with the people to collect data, that's the framework thorugh wich I saw my analysis, and thus my possibilities.
I've already read a bit online and on this and other subreddits on the topic of programming languages for linguistics, so I think my options are between Python and Java (maybe R????). To be clear, I don't know exactly what you can do with either of these, so I don't know how to start comparing them. That's why I'm looking for suggestions or perhaps, a detailed run-down of both languages in order to make a better choice.

2023.06.10 05:00 Far_Bonus2226 How soon to apply for jobs before graduating with a MS, and how to find entry level work?

Hello! I have a year to go before I graduate with my MS, with jobs that largely are theoretical in nature (research) or applied (mostly blue collasome skilled labor). I was a non-traditional college student who worked for 4 years in the same field i'm studying (agriculture) before pursuing my bachelors and now my masters degree. My bachelors degree was heavy on soil and other natural resource management classes, and my masters degree coursework is primarily data science/analysis and modeling courses related to agriculture/ecology/natural resources. I have a decent understanding of all things agriculture from a farmers perspective, as well as the scientific background. I'm a RA, so I have quite a bit of experience in the lab environment doing soil analysis. During undergrad I spent two summers as an intern for the US department of agriculture, and was ultimately offered a job but turned it down to go to grad school instead.
I am having a difficult time finding jobs that fit my experience that pay more than 45k/yr, requires only a GED/high school diploma, or jobs that pay well but require 10+ years of experience with some obscure technology or management experience. It seems there are few options that are in between.
I have gotten pretty decent at R, SQL, and SAS so i've been looking at data analyst/scientist positions also that are adjacent to the agriculture/environmental field but i'm not certain I am proficient enough in any of those things.
I still have a year to go and i'm already burnt out, and part of me just wants to buy a farm and live the farm life since I miss all of the blue collar labor that I did previously. I really enjoyed driving the tractor and baling hay and doing the maintenance and upkeep on equipment. The pay wasn't great, but I've always enjoyed working with my hands and being outdoors. It sort of feels bad to throw away all of my education to go back to doing what I did before. Anyway does anyone have any answers or input?

2023.06.10 04:59 kayla019283 31 [F4M]- Looking for long term friendship - USA

I want to find a friend who I can talk to and listen about each other’s lives. I want this to be a mutual thing. You talk and I talk. So only reach out if you will put in the effort. I’m from the US, so if you’re from another country, make sure your schedule matches mine. Otherwise, don’t reach out, it will be difficult and I don’t want that.
Also, texting is convenient and something we could do to stay in touch, but we also need to add calls to the mix. I don’t want to hear that you need to know me first.
MUST BE OKAY WITH CALLS. I’m not making anyone message me and do calls. That’s your choice, but if you do reach out it’s because you’re going to be doing calls with me :) And I don’t mean share numbers, we can talk on an app.
I enjoy walks and being out in the sun, now that the weather is getting warmer.
I’m 31, probably too old for some of you. I’m single. I don’t have children. I’m in a good spot but just need that connection with people because I lack social skills.
Don’t reach out if you’re married or in a relationship it’s just awkward. And don’t comment about this. You know exactly why it’s awkward, if you don’t then I definitely don’t want to talk to you.
If the times below don’t work for you or you won’t be able to talk through these times then it won’t work, so DO NOT reach out.
I’m in MST, USA. I wake up at 5am Monday to Friday and 6am on weekends. I sleep around 11pm each night. I would like it if we could talk throughout the day and start and end our days together.
Thanks. Send me a CHAT REQUEST if you want to try this. Include your location and in your own words tell me what you are looking for or I will not reply. I will NOT respond to messages or comments, ONLY CHAT.
I also have other forms of communication if that works best for you.

2023.06.10 04:59 _fyujin Truck stop question

I know for truck stops one of the most hated things is seeing dropped trailers in spots. I'm doing my 10hr reset and the weather is fairly warm so planning on idling to keep myself cool since my truck doesn't have smart idle it stays on pretty much all day till night comes and is cool enough to keep it off. But I realized that I don't have much fuel and don't want to leave my spot since it was a nice and easy spot. Think I would get shit if I dropped the trailer and bobtail through the fuel aisles to get some fuel then hook back up? Don't wanna disrespect truck stop etiquette.

2023.06.10 04:59 SilverSpotter Beautiful Dreamer [F4A][Dreaming][Established Relationship][Coping with Loss][Returning Memories]

For the VA: You are playing the role of "Rem", a living dream that exists within the listeners mind. You've been fine with your circumstances until you've been noticing signs that you and your dreamer might be separated forever.
Unsure of what's going to happen to yourself, you've been doing your best to just try and accept your fate, and cherish your remaining time with your dreamer.
All sound effects are encouraged, but still optional.
Feel free to change the dialogue to your liking, or even completely improvise. Whatever you need to make the lines feel more natural. What matters is keeping the general story the same.
You may absolutely monetize this, but if you should place this product behind a paywall, I would appreciate a copy of the performance.
Feel free to ask any questions or bring up any concerns, should they come up.
Context: While resting in bed, you feel a blissful pull on your mind into the darkness of sleep. To your surprise, you hear a voice calling out as clear as day, and you feel compelled to respond.

Rem: (Softly) "Baby? Are you here?" (Relieved on finding the listener) There you are! It was pretty hard to see you this time."
[Listener: "Who are you? Where am I?"]
Rem: (Light chuckle) "You're dreaming again. Don't worry though. It normally takes you a little while to get your memory back. It's kind of my favorite part of the dream. I like seeing you react to things for the first time all over again.
Oh! But do I look familiar? Even if you don't remember me, I should look familiar at least.
(Smug chuckle while she gives the dreamer a moment) No? Don't worry. I can see your eyes light up when you look at me, even if you don't think you remember."
[Listener: "Why is it so dark then?"]
Rem: "Its always been this dark in the beginning. You always meet me here at the first stage of REM sleep. Actually, that's why we thought "Rem" would be a good name for me!
... (Bashful) I'm glad I'm the first thing you think of when you fall asleep."
[As if cutting off the dreamer]
Rem: "Shh! Hold that thought! Look! You're starting to dream! Well. Dream more.
(Curious) What is that anyway? A road?"
[Splashing sounds]
Rem: "Oof! Am asphalt road on water. What the heck? Hurry! Get on the road!"
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "Why is there a road on the water? Like I said, it's a dream. This is far from the weirdest thing you've dreamed about. (Mischievous giggle)"
[Dreamer: "What else did I dream of?"]
Rem: "You wanna hear one? Hmm... There was this time that we were in a school together, but the classrooms were modified to be pig pens. And your old classmates, from elementary school, were still kids, and still bullying you. They tried to get you to go down a drain in the pens? I don't know. It was weird. You ended up flying away anyway. I guess you took the roof off the building, because I don't remember crashing through any ceiling!
(Laughing) What? You asked! I'm just a dream along for the ride! I have no control over the weird plot twists the other dreams take."
[Seeing something nearby]
Rem: "Oh! Look! A car! A Ford Model T, but still a car. We can probably get out of here if we take that. Don't worry. I'll drive."
[Dreamer talks while the two get into the car]
Rem: "Yup! That's another way you found out I'm real; I know some things you don't. I guess I just like vintage cars more than you?"
[Starts with any car engine sound and begins to drive]
Rem: "I don't remember anything before your dreams, but I know things about the world that you don't. We felt this confirmed that I'm alive. A "real dream". Just not a dream-come-true..."
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "That's what I said, actually! You were the one who pointed out that, no matter how lucid the dream, you could never alter me in any major way. Go ahead!
(Proudly, playfully defiant) I am immune to your power!"
[Dreamer: "Do you call me dreamer?"]
Rem: (Softly) "Yeah. I do call you dreamer. See? You're remembering! Do you remember why?"
[Dreamer doesn't, so Rem begins humming the song 'Beautiful Dreamer' for a moment]
Rem: "The song, Beautiful Dreamer.
(Enamored) You... You sang it to me after you realized I was real."
[Dreamer: "On our first date."]
Rem: (Gasps in surprise) "You remembered! Yes! On our first date.
(In a monotone voice) That makes you my dream girl!
(Normal voice) Nice try, buster. You say that line each time.
(Giggling) But it always makes me smile."
[Stopping the car]
Rem: "After you sang to me I told you that I'm a dream, not a dreamer. You didn't like thinking about me like that though, so I started hammering it into your head over and over again by calling you the dreamer. And it stuck at some point. But with a fondness I feel for you."
[Dreamer asks why they stopped]
Rem: "What? We've driven far enough that I'm sure nothing new is going to happen, so we can just park it for now. And while you were busy marveling at your exceptionally beautiful girlfriend, I noticed the water started to act up around us. Rocks and waves are showing up out of the water."
[Dreamer: "How long have we been together?"]
Rem: "I was worried you'd ask how long we've been together. Ugh. I suck at math. How long have we been together in real time? About two years, four weeks, and five days."
[Sounds of crashing waves and seagulls in the background]
Rem: "How long have we been together in dream time? Over forty years, I think?"
[Dreamer says something causing Rem to burst out laughing]
Rem: "Wait! I just told you that we've been dating for over forty years and you just noticed I look like your ideal partner? That's what I was saying when I asked if I look familiar. Why did you realize it just now?"
[Dreamer: "I was imagining how lucky I am to spend forty years with you."]
Rem: (Hitched gasp, followed by light crying) "No! I'm sorry. That was really sweet of you to say. I-I'm lucky to have spent these past few decades with you too!...
(Sniffle) I-it's just... Um... I don't want it to end..."
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "No. I'm not talking about you just waking up... When you wake up, I'm still here, somewhere in your daydreams... It's just... The dreams have been getting shorter. Really short... We think it means... Well..."
[Dreamer speaks]
Rem: "... Yeah. That we might never see each other one day. We don't know if I'm dying, or if a dream's fantasy is just coming to an end... We're not sure of much about it.
(Sniffles) You've been a dream come true to me. And I don't want it to end... But I don't think you'll remember me entirely before you wake up."
[Dreamers hugs Rem, causing her voice to tremble with sorrow]
Rem: "Th-thank you, Dreamer. Even with all of this, I still feel better in your arms."
[Deep sigh, and a slightly more cheery tone]
Rem: "No, really. I do feel better. It's just... I'm feeling a lot of emotions right now."
[Dreamer: "Maybe we can get someone to help?"]
Rem: "Dreamer, I love you, but you ask that every time. I know you can't help it, so I'll just keep it simple; Who could possibly help us? Whenever you wake up, you forget everything that happened. Sometimes you remember bits and pieces, and you get the cutest smile on your face, even when you can't remember why you're so happy.
(Sigh) We've spent years trying to think of a way out of this, so please, just let me... Let me enjoy the time I have left with you."
[Dreamer agrees]
Rem: "Thank you, baby."
[Deep breath to compose herself]
Rem: "So! What are you dreaming about now? No offense, but this kind of looks... Boring? Its a pretty night sky, a full moon, some rocks near the road- OH! I think I see mermaids!"
[Pointing out]
Rem: "There! See?...
(Confused) What?
(Playfully annoyed) Oh puh-lease! I literally look like your ideal woman. Between me and them? It's no contest. Just look! They're singing something, I think. I can't hear anything though... You can't hear them either? Huh. Not the weirdest thing you've dreamed of."
[Rem suddenly remembering]
Rem: "Oh! Do you wanna know what the weirdest thing you dreamed of was?"
[Dreamer replies]
Rem: "OK, so! Do you remember that little house you grew up in when you were little?
[Sound begins to fade away for a time skip]
Rem: "Right! Well, part of it was a castle in a swamp, and- Shush! I know it doesn't make sense, let me finish the story!"
[Sound fades back in as a unknown amount of time has passed]
Rem: "So you put me in your satchel, and jumped out of its mouth, but for some reason, my top half couldn't go all the way into the satchel this time.
(Laughing) Yes! So you do remember! Oh my God! I was so pissed off after my head bumped into its teeth. The teeth broke, but I had such a bad headache after that, I just couldn't keep my eyes from watering."
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "No! I wasn't crying! Don't you think if I was crying I would've worked out as many pity points as I could get from you?
(Smug chuckle) Yeah, OK. Pity points got us into that mess, but I really wasn't crying! We'd have missed the dance if I wasted too much time."
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "Right? That was so fun! I'm not even a fan of disco, but I had to see that through."
[Laughing before letting out a deep and happy sigh]"
[Dreamer: "Wow. Can I get tired in dreams?"]
Rem: (Sadly) "Yeah... You can get tired in dreams. It happens right before you wake up."
[Dreamer talks]
Rem: "No. Its not like when you're awake. You can't force yourself to stay awake. Eventually you'll fade back to reality."
[Dreamer replies]
Rem: "I don't want you to go either!... But I don't want our last moments to be desperate and scared.
[Dreamer kisses Rem, allowing her to let out a relaxed sigh]
Rem: "Thank you, baby. [Pleased giggle] Here. Why don't you lay your head on my lap?"
[Interrupting Dreamer]
Rem: "Shhh... Don't worry about that right now... Thank you."
[Giggling again as Dreamer rests their head on her lap]
Rem: "Yeah. You probably couldn't do this in a regular car, but this isn't a regular car. Comfy? Good!..."
[Deep breath]
Rem: "Even the sun in here is starting to rise... Yeah. It's OK. Just relax..."
[A moment goes by before Rem begins to sing Beautiful Dreamer, but gets interrupted partway through with a whoosh, as Dreamer vanishes]
Rem: (Urgently) "Dreamer? Dreamer!"
[Rem begins to cry, but tries to compose herself by singing again. She changes the first few words to 'Beautiful Dreamer, don't forget me', and the audio fades to an end as she continues to sing through her tears.]

2023.06.10 04:58 MasterBaitingBoy No longer care about her

I accepted that she never loved me. I loved her beyond words. And now I don’t care. I couldn’t care. It’s been 6 months of grieving and I’m finally done.
If there’s anything reality has taught me is that there is no truth to romantic love. There is no truth to falling in love lo matter how overwhelming it is and how much your heart cries everyday for someone. No matter how much it feels like destiny.
There’s only one thing that is true in this life: what you decide to be. Being authentic and having values. Everything else can and will fuck off.
No matter how degrading it is to be emotionally abandoned and how much you feel on the verge of doom. The only saving force is your own will.

2023.06.10 04:58 Junel_Fe Using my Self to deal with an implicit flashback [TW]

I've been stuck in an implicit flashback for over a week and a half now. It gets worse each day, and I feel like I'm losing touch with the present moment more and more with each day. Actually, I was considering going to the emergency room today to get myself inpatient help for the very first time... But then I heard that there are no local facilities for me, plus I probably couldn't afford the bill at this time, so I decided against it, at least for now...
In the meantime, I thought I could do some more thought processing here. I think it would be better than doing nothing and just having the feelings get even worse. I decided to use my favorite self-help practice, "Internal Family Systems (IFS)" to work through what's been going on in my head for all this time. So here we go.
I put on some relaxing music and had myself sit down. Taking some deep breaths and focusing on the music and breaths, I was able to pull my Self out of being tangled up with one of my other parts. Doing that made it easier for me to look at this part objectively and let her express herself without overwhelming me past a point where I couldn't help her. When I'm enmeshed with other parts, it's almost like being in a room filled with loud noises. If the part tries to talk to me, I won't be able to hear them or think of solutions as well as if I were in a more quiet environment, you know what I mean?
Anyways, I separated from the part that's been experiencing this overwhelming flashback for all this time. Looking at her, she seemed to be out-of-sorts still, so I imagined a comforting and relatable cartoon character to be in the room with us. That calmed her down slightly, but I could still tell that she was being bothered by internal trauma stuff. So, offering her a comfy couch to sit on with the cartoon character, I asked her what's on her mind. Her immediate response was lashing out at me and threatening to hurt herself. Various images of self-harming kept popping into my head, but I reminded myself not to judge this part and, instead, listen to what she had to say with compassion.
Moving on, I realized something interesting about the places she was wanting to self-harm. While the thoughts were of places to self-harm, they were also places where she wanted to be touched and held, if that makes any sense. She's been craving for someone to hold her and treat her kindly for the past two weeks, but because no one's physically here to do that, she's been lashing out at our entire self, wanting to go crazy and hurt us severely. Tuning into her thoughts, I further realized that the main motivator behind this has been loneliness and a lack of healthy love from others. She's also been exhibiting hyper-sexual behaviors as well, trying to fill the void of being loved and held, but it never works. It only ever makes us all feel worse... But it's how she learned to cope for all these years. I'm deciding not to be upset at her for that.
After going back into the state of Self, I remind her that it's okay; that there are other ways to feel loved other than what she had to endure as a child. The feeling to self-harm is still there, but it's lessening a little bit. "I just want to be loved," she says in a quiet voice, trying to make herself look small, almost as if that would make her more lovable. I tell her that she doesn't need to make herself small or be treated in horrible and degrading ways to be loved. "What happened back then was not love," I explain. "Love is patient, kind, and gentle. Love doesn't include people selfishly taking parts of you away for their own selfish gain."
The cartoon character on the couch then wraps her arms around the part saying, "Don't be sad. Don't be sad" in a comforting way. It's not much, but it's enough to make this part simmer down and breathe deeper and slower. "There, that's better," the imaginary cartoon character says with a supportive smile. The part now looks much calmer, but is now reminding me of that scene in the live-action Maleficent where Maleficent had her wings savagely taken from her by someone who was supposed to love her and care about her. If you know the implications of this, you know the implications of why this part would show this to me. It's a lot for anyone to bear, but especially when you're a small child.
I chuckle half-heartedly at the movie scene she chose to show me, because that movie also had an ending that could apply to us. In order for Sleeping Beauty to be awakened from the curse set upon her as a baby, she had to be awakened by the kiss of someone who loved her dearly. But it wasn't the kiss of a prince that woke her from the curse. It was the kiss of Maleficent herself, at least in that version of the movie. For us, this could look like us receiving the love of friends and family. It's not the same as being kissed by a romantic partner, but that doesn't make it any less powerful. Also, for this example, self-love could also apply to the antidote needed to break our trauma's "curse". We could have the love of everyone in the world, but until we can learn to love ourselves, we won't be able to recognize the full effects of that external love. Self-love may be what we truly need to fill the void within properly.
This post is getting long, but after typing all of this out, I most definitely feel a lot better than before. Typing this out was me walking myself through the IFS process independently. But yeah... anyways, I think now would be an excellent time for me to brainstorm some ways for myself to engage in self-love practices.

2023.06.10 04:57 namebrandlizard Help with rage

Having an episode, but instead of straight mania or depression, it's mixed. YAY! The erratic back and forth emotions are mild enough that it's easy to cope with and so far has just been episodic throughout the day instead of constant. It comes out really bad when I get home from work because I'm just so exhausted from keeping it reeled in all day.
For the first time ever I'm experiencing more than just irritability. It's just outright rage. I've lost my shit on my coworkers twice now. I have been sitting in my car just screaming obscenities when I can't hold it inside anymore. I smashed half of my dishes on my kitchen floor. Haven't bothered to clean it up because it just makes me angry to look at. I relapsed back into self harm because I've been internalizing it and then inflicting it on myself when I can't suppress it anymore and it just vomits out of me.
I don't know how to cope with this. I don't know if it's going to turn into violence or how to know when I've reached the point where I'm a danger to other people. I don't have any experience to inform me. I've never been so angry in my life.
I thought yesterday the worst of it was passing. Today it's just ramping up again.
At what point do I take myself to grippy sock jail? My psychiatrist dropped me and I don't have a therapist, so I have nobody to call.

2023.06.10 04:57 shawbelt I want you to tell me not to give up.

Married 11 years today. 3 kids aged 6-9. He hasn’t spoken to me today. He’s mad at me for reasons that I accept full responsibility for. But it’s not just today on our anniversary that I feel neglected…there’s also Mother’s Day, where he was mad at me so didn’t tell me about brunch reservations until it was time to get in the car or we’d be late. We didn’t go. Then there was my birthday 3 months ago that went by without a card or gift, despite specifically asking for one and being met with “it’s not in the budget.” And I don’t think we’ve ever celebrated Valentine’s Day as a married couple. He’s “just not a gift giver and receiving gifts is stressful” to him. Nothing in my stocking on Christmas morning, though he did buy me a very nice gift that I asked for about a month beforehand, so that was my Christmas gift. It wasn’t the exact thing I asked for, which I had researched, but it was a less expensive and good option. For my 40th last year, he surprised me with an extravagant trip to Vegas, but he wouldn’t hold my hand in the airport because he doesn’t like public displays of affection. That’s when I found out—my 40th birthday and I’ve never felt more ugly and unwanted than that moment where he wouldn’t even acknowledge our life together in a warehouse of strangers coming and going. I was so devastated and falling apart and sobbed for basically the entire trip like a spoiled brat. But why am I so unloveable?! He’s scheduled a couples massage for my actual birthday and I was too depressed to go, so he went without me.
I want you to tell me I’m being a brat and too demanding. When he tells me he doesn’t think he can love me the way I want to be loved, I want you to tell me that he does through his actions—like that trip to Vegas (my first) and bringing me coffee every morning that he’s home (he works out of town 8 days a month). A few weeks ago, he was driving my car and noticed I needed new wiper fluid and filled it up—doesn’t that mean he loves me and is a good partner? He takes the kids to school in the morning (I love doing it, but he sees it as a way for me to wake up slowly bc I stay up late). He provides the majority of our income, which is a comfort to me. I don’t like shopping, so he goes to the grocery store and makes meals and keeps the kitchen tidy.
I understand that he has strong boundaries. He doesn’t like to touch me. He loves to be touched, but there’s something about me that just turns him off—whether it’s holding my hand in public or intimacy.
I’ve spent the last few years in therapy trying to accept what is. I love him so much and want the life we both imagine. I just don’t feel loved and adored. Are those optional? These are all normal feelings in any relationship, right? I feel so vulnerable begging my husband to love me and it’s been years. Maybe I’m just not seeing that he shows his love in ways that don’t strike my heart the way I want love to? Thank you.

2023.06.10 04:56 Artemystica Requesting Feedback from the Sub Regarding Reddit's API Changes and Many Subs' Planned Blackout

Hello, Wedditors.
If you have not seen on many of the other subs on the site, reddit is making changes to their API. This will cause some major difficulties for 3rd party apps which many use to browse reddit as well as mods who use 3rdparty apps to moderate communities (due to some deficiencies in that regard with the official reddit app).
This post provides some info on how it affects users as well as describes many communities planned blackout in protest (set for June 12-14).

2023.06.10 04:56 expertly123 accurate aiming heuristics

Hey guys, I've been playing billiards as a hobby for a few months now. I don't play super frequently, but I feel that there's an easy trap to fall into when wanting to improve at X which is just playing a lot of X and yet not improving because you're not working on building good/repetitive habits for X
Specifically, I feel like there are just a ton of shots I'm not comfortable making. Forget the leave, I just don't make the shot. So I went to a hall today to practice just making the shot
I focused on
- back foot in the line of where I'm aiming
- stay down throughout whole shot
- even/smooth pendulum stroke
- medium speed stroke each time

On top of this, I know that the ghost ball method is the recommended method to use, and obviously from a logical/physics perspective it is great. However, it's not my favourite bc:
- hard to know where the ghost ball is when you're aiming
- I'd rather just be able to shoot the shot without using the cue to find the ghost ball, angle it towards the cue ball, stare down that line, etc...I'd like to just be able to go down on the shot and make it

So this brings us to the title of the post, where I'm trying to hone my pattern recognition/heuristics for how to aim cue balls
- when I'm aiming for a thin cut (e.g. 45 degrees or more) I aim more thin than I think I should. I think this is cause of cut-induced throw (that adjusts appropriately if I cut overly thin)
- when I'm aiming for a side pocket, I always aim to miss outside (\long side), not inside (short side). Bc I think the outside is easier to make than it appears (+ I get more tilted when I miss inside). *Lmk proper terminology there; I'm using like hockey terminology or whatever*
- when I'm aiming for \long shots (this is the one I was mostly practicing today) I found I was constantly making the OB hit the side/long rail. So I adjusted by aiming to miss and make sure the OB hit the fashort rail. *Example of one of these long shots = put OB somewhere along center line, closer to one of the side rails. put CB on the 1st diamond or before, close to perfectly lined up to shoot OB in the corner pocket*

I know there are specific drills I could do, but as I said I would like to
- repeatedly master certain shots (instead of a bunch of shots)
- not practice the leave (yet)

This post is a bit stream of consciousness bc it goes through a bunch of my thinking/training process. But please let me know your thoughts or advice on any of it. I'm really trying to improve best I can, which is in essence equivalent to finding the best training repertoire for my situation/goals

Meet Jason White What do the Department of Defense, the Department of Homeland Security, the Department of Agriculture, the Department of Veteran Affairs, and the Department of Interior all have in common? Each one of these United States governing bodies has an ongoing relationship with and has awarded one or several government contracts to Jason White. Jason started his business in 2008. He didn’t reap the dividends of his work until 2011. It took three years to get his first contract because, in the beginning, all he had was a Ph.D., public high school diploma, an interest, and an ethic. Without any guidance or help, he used that formula to become the mentor he thought he needed. Now, he is the conduit between government entities, their representatives, and you. Before he began this journey he had never worked for the federal government and had no prior knowledge of the federal government’s internal protocol. Yet, he’s secured over 35 active government contracts, more than 30 of which are ongoing for at least the next four years, and the number continues to grow. Given his extensive experience, Jason has the skillsets, relationships, rapport, and resumé to be a mentor for others who seek to win government contracts.

2023.06.10 04:55 shewasere [REQUEST] [STEAM] God Eater 2 Rage Burst $7.49 until June 12 (-85% off)

What is God Eater? So God Eater is an action rpg game, basically anime monster hunter. In this game you play as a new God eater fighting to defeat the aragami. A god eater is a special person who is capable of using a God arc and a God arc is basically the weapons each character uses and aragami are basically the monsters you're fighting.
Why I love the game & want it:
This is one of those games I played as a child (the 1st one), it was on psp and i remember it like yesterday. I've been trying to get back into single player games and I think this game would do wonders for me. Plus you get 2 games in one. The first God eater (the one from psp) and number 2. This is probably one of the only games I remember playing over and over in my younger days (aside from monster hunter & sims 4 ofc). Like I'd literally make a new file just to remake my character and play over the first missions. The missions with soma were some of my favorites and another part of the game that most games don't do that I loveeee so much is the fact you can tell your ai/npc teammates to like heal you or go fight or fall back. The only other game that kinda does that is persona and i love that franchise too anyways b4 i go on a whole craze. The graphics are amazing, the game has alot of cut scenes which are normal for anime like games. There's customization which is a huge plus for me. The story was one of the main aspects in why I loved about this game so much, the maps & monsters aren't repetitive and the game is challenging enough for you to easily put in 100+ hours into it. I've been itching to play this game again since my psp broke and I never knew it was on pc until recently. I don't really know much about God eater 2 though since im trying to avoid spoilers because I'd like to experience the game myself but I LOVE LOVE LOVE the first one. This game deserves more recognition in general.
Other similar games I've played & loved:
Scarlet Nexus
Monster Hunter ofc
If there are any God Eater fans out there who'd be willing to gift this long time fan of the franchise the game so I can relive some nostalgia and enjoy an amazing story game. I'd be so grateful. Thanks for reading <3

2023.06.10 04:54 Dyllanj Trig: Solving for X, Y, and R, instead of using Pythagorean identities?

Hey guys, first week of college trig, just wondering if instead of having to memorize Pythag identities, if I can just solve for X, Y, and R. If I'm given like "Sin = 3/4, find cos", I find it easier to just plug 3 and 4 into r= √(x^2 + y^), and solve for the missing variable, than using the identities. I get confused reading like csc and cos and its easier for me to just solve for X, Y, and R and use that to write out the 6 functions. Is this a bad habit or will I be fine moving forward solving like this. Will be taking calculus in the fall. Thanks all!

2023.06.10 04:53 trafficconefan At what point should I give up a medication and try another one?

I, 19F, was recently diagnosed with bipolar affective disorder, which I think is the same as bipolar 1? I was in the hospital for nearly 9 days and was prescribed Depakote (250mg twice a day) as a mood stabilizer and Trazodone (100mg as needed) for sleep.
I have been taking the Depakote for just over a week and only started feeling some side effects yesterday after having no issues at first. It’s mainly a slight headache, a little bit of lightheaded-ness, and feeling like I’m just gonna fall over and maybe pass out. Today at work two people had to help me walk to a place to sit because I said I felt like I was gonna fall over. I felt that way for most of the day afterwards, but fortunately nothing happened.
I know it takes weeks of taking a medication for it take full effect, but I’m wondering if I should talk to my doctor at my appointment next week about already switching to another medication. I was in the ER a few days before the manic episode that led to be being hospitalized. They gave me Zyprexa, which I feel like actually helped. I also had it once when I was hospitalized, as well as Ativan. Should I speak up about these medications (it’s a new doctor so they’ve got no prior knowledge of the situation)? I also sometimes have one or two panic attacks a day at work so I don’t know what to do.
Or do I just deal with the side effects, assuming it goes away, and move on? They’re probably just lower the dose or something, right? Thanks for your help.

2023.06.10 04:53 lonktehero Shoulder injury

I just want opinions on what I might have going on. Was cycling down stairs Monday afternoon during a training course I was in. Made it down fine, but lost control of my bike after coming off the staircase. The bike laid down to my right over my ankle and i fell. While falling, I instinctually stuck my right forearm out and it caught on a cement wall. My arm fully extended as I fell, and i felt a very sharp painful pop in my shoulder. I was seen by a doctor the next day, and i personally put my pain between a 5-7 depending on how my arm is bent and if i try to lift it. Regardless of how I bend it, I can't lift beyond shoulder height (or parallel to the shoulder if that explains it better). I have pain when attempting to reach across. My movements are slow with it and it feels heavy to lift it in any way. I can "lock" my arm out if I take it slowly and don't lift it up while doing so. Doctor at the urgent care did some tests and said she thought it's a partial or full labrum tear. I was wondering if the event and the effects sound consist with a labrum tear to yall? I've been in a sling for 2 days now and they pain is somewhat lessened as I've been keeping it restricted. Supposed to have an MRI soon, as it is workers comp injury, but not exact idea when it will happen. Does that diagnosis sound accurate or would the pain stay constant and not lessen like it has if it was a tear? Side note, I've dislocated my shoulder years ago in high school sports, but that's been over 10 years ago.

2023.06.10 04:52 cloversunlight Vestibulodynia after child birth?

Hello everyone, I'm wondering if any of you have been diagnosed or believe you have vestibulodynia after childbirth? Intercourse/tampons/any vaginal insertion was always pain free for me before giving birth to my daughter. It wasn't until after I gave birth that I began experiencing the symptoms correlated with this diagnosis. My daughter is turning 4 this year so I've been struggling with this insane pain for all these years. I see a pelvic floor therapist in a couple of days so maybe I'll find my answer there, but just looking for some other possible similar stories.
(details: I did not have any internal or external tearing from child birth, I pushed for about 2 hours with only her head beginning to come out but ended up needing an emergency c-section so she did not fully come out of my vagina)
