2023.03.30 07:06 SwarupKumarNath Basic Understanding of Artificial Intelligence

Artificial intelligence (AI) is one of the most exciting and transformative fields of science and technology in the 21st century. AI is the ability of machines to perform tasks that normally require human intelligence, such as understanding language, recognizing images, solving problems, and learning from data. AI has the potential to improve many aspects of our lives, from health care and education to entertainment and business.
But what exactly is AI and how does it work? How can we use AI to solve real-world problems and create new opportunities? And what are the challenges and risks of developing and deploying AI systems? In this blog post, I will try to answer these questions and give you an overview of the main concepts and applications of AI.
AI can be broadly divided into two categories: narrow AI and general AI. Narrow AI is the type of AI that we encounter in our daily lives, such as voice assistants, face recognition, spam filters, and recommendation systems. These are systems that are designed to perform specific tasks or functions, and they are usually based on rules or algorithms that are programmed by humans.
General AI, on the other hand, is the type of AI that we see in science fiction movies, such as HAL 9000, Skynet, or Jarvis. These are systems that can understand and reason about any domain or situation, and they can learn and improve themselves without human intervention. General AI is still a distant goal for researchers and developers, and some experts doubt that it will ever be achieved.
One of the main techniques that enable AI systems to learn from data and perform complex tasks is machine learning. Machine learning is a branch of computer science that studies how to make machines learn from data without explicitly programming them. Machine learning algorithms can find patterns, make predictions, and optimize decisions based on data.
There are different types of machine learning algorithms, such as supervised learning, unsupervised learning, reinforcement learning, and deep learning. Supervised learning is when the algorithm learns from labeled data, such as images with captions or emails with spam labels. Unsupervised learning is when the algorithm learns from unlabeled data, such as customer transactions or social media posts. Reinforcement learning is when the algorithm learns from its own actions and feedback, such as a robot navigating a maze or a game agent playing chess. Deep learning is a subset of machine learning that uses artificial neural networks to model complex data structures and functions.
AI has many applications in various domains and industries, such as health care, education, entertainment, business, security, and more. Some examples of AI applications are:
- Health care: AI can help diagnose diseases, analyze medical images, design drugs, monitor patients, and provide personalized care. - Education: AI can help create adaptive learning systems, tutor students, grade assignments, and provide feedback. - Entertainment: AI can help create realistic graphics, animations, sounds, music, stories, and games. - Business: AI can help optimize operations, reduce costs, increase efficiency, enhance customer service, and generate insights. - Security: AI can help detect fraud, prevent cyberattacks, monitor threats, and enforce laws.
However, AI also poses some challenges and risks that need to be addressed carefully and responsibly. Some of these are:
- Ethical: AI can raise ethical issues such as privacy, fairness, accountability, transparency, bias, discrimination, and human dignity. - Social: AI can have social impacts such as unemployment, inequality, polarization, isolation, and cultural diversity. - Technical: AI can face technical challenges such as scalability, reliability, robustness, security, and explainability.
Therefore, it is important to develop and use AI in a way that is aligned with human values and goals, and that respects the rights and interests of all stakeholders.
AI is a fascinating and powerful field of science and technology that can bring many benefits and opportunities to humanity. But it also requires careful and responsible design, development, and deployment, to ensure that it serves the common good and does not harm anyone.
If you are interested to understand more about the Artificial Intelligence, then you can go through the PiEmbSysTech Artificial Intelligence Tutorial Blog. If you have any questions or query, that you need to get answer or you have any idea to share it with the community, you can use Piest Forum.

RUSSIAN OFFENSIVE CAMPAIGN ASSESSMENT, MARCH 29, 2023 Iranian Foreign Affairs Minister Hossein Amir Abdollahian met with Russian Foreign Minister Sergei Lavrov in Moscow on March 29 to review strategic and long-term cooperation agreements that will likely intensify Russia and Iran’s bilateral security relationship. Wagner Group financier Yevgeny Prigozhin seized on the recent story of the sentencing of a Tula Oblast father for his 12-year-old daughter’s antiwar drawing to promote the Wagner Group’s reputation and ameliorate his own personal image. Chechen Republic Head Ramzan Kadyrov’s demonstrative response to an attack on a police station in Chechnya suggests that he may be concerned about the stability of his authoritarian rule. Russian authorities arrested Russian National Guard (Rosgvardia) naval department head Colonel Sergey Volkov for corruption-related charges. Ukrainian Defense Minister Oleksii Reznikov stated on March 27 that Ukrainian forces may be planning to launch a counteroffensive in April or May depending on weather conditions. Russian forces conducted limited ground attacks along the Kupyansk-Svatove-Kreminna line. Russian forces continued offensive operations in and around Bakhmut and along the Avdiivka-Donetsk City front. International Atomic Energy Agency (IAEA) Director General Rafael Grossi visited the Zaporizhzhia Nuclear Power Plant (ZNPP) for the second time. Russian occupation authorities continue to implement measures to integrate occupied territories into the Russian administrative and legal system. The Belarusian Ministry of Defense (MoD) reported that planned activities are ongoing to call up those liable for military service for military training and to retrain reserve servicemen in military registration specialties.

2023.03.30 07:01 StepwiseUndrape574 GTA V Added To Xbox Game Pass, Possible GTA 6 Release Date News Emerges

Fans of Grand Theft Auto V, who don't already have the game on Xbox One, will be happy to hear about the latest news from Microsoft. The game has been added to Xbox Game Pass, so players with a valid subscription can play the game on the console. GTA V launched back in 2013 and remains a very popular game thanks to online content updates and a massive modding community.
GTA V is also one of the most viewed games on Twitch and is regularly in the top five games on Steam. Rockstar hit a home run with GTA V, and adding it for free to Xbox Game Pass may bring gamers to the franchise that haven't yet tried it out. For Xbox One gamers with an Xbox Game Pass Ultimate or Xbox Live Gold membership, access to the frequently updated Grand Theft Auto Online service is included. One sad bit of news is that GTA V is only offered on the console; it's not available on the PC with Game Pass.
While GTA V is still wildly popular, fans are clamoring for the next installment in the franchise: GTA 6. GTA 6 details recently leaked from a claimed beta tester and enticed us with visions of the game. A new rumor claims that GTA 6 won't launch until 2021, however, nothing official from Rockstar has been offered about GTA 6 so far.
The leak from a few days back was posted on Reddit and was later removed by moderators there. It's unclear if Rockstar pressured them to delete the content, but the leaker claimed that the game has a huge map that covers two major cities, Carcer City and Vice City, said to be based on Boston and Miami, respectively. True or not, GTA V fans are looking forward to GTA 6, even if it is a year or more away.

2023.03.30 06:54 persephone21 Post-adoption blues (2.5 weeks in with 2.5 year old dog)

Hi everyone,
I figured I'd chronicle a bit of my post-adoption journey here in case it helps anyone else (and to get it off my chest). I adopted my dog from Hawaii, and he arrived 2.5 weeks ago. He is a ~40lb Pharaoh hound mix (looks just like a pharaoh hound). I spent two days with him in Hawaii before adopting him and he flew here to where I live (Oregon). He is a very sweet dog, very gentle, has yet to bark, doesn't drool, snuggly, good in a car, gets along with all dogs, and, while cautious with new people, generally friendly (not reactive), and sleeps through the night now that I've figured out a bed situation he likes.
I'm 35, married, I have my own online business, and don't have my own kids (I do have a 19-year-old stepson). I have wanted a dog for a few years because I love animals, do not plan on having kids (it is not for me), and it just felt like one of the more worthwhile things you could do (and I wanted to have the experience at least once in life because I've never had a dog).
Basically - it has been hard for me. My dog is not a bad dog at all, but he has never lived in a house and was not house-trained. He gets severe anxiety being in a crate (for now), so that's not an option. I think he previously lived outside, had 0 training, and never walked on a leash. In our house, he basically just doesn't *settle*. Nervous pacing, doesn't know where to go other than the two couches and sometimes one of his many beds. To get him to chill out, I have to tether him near one of his beds with one of his leashes, at which point he will lie down and chill (I am always in the room supervising, like when I cook dinner or need to do laundry). To sum it up - my life before this was relatively quiet. My autistic stepson can be loud and annoying, but he's 19 so I can reason with him. It was just me, my cat, my stepson, and my husband, and I spent the majority of my time alone doing my creative activities.
The biggest challenge for me has been what I just described - the dog's nervous energy. He had two long walks today, some training, played with his toys, and got half of his dinner using a new snuffle mat, but for some reason, today he discovered all the toys I've had for him for weeks and was going crazy with them, then going around to everything in my office (a large room where I spend all my time) and biting everything, constantly pacing, just acting nuts. I took him outside for a pee break and to walk around the block (we don't yet have a fenced yard and are looking to fence the only yard we have, which is a small side yard), and he was practically sprinting on his leash (he has never done this before). Then, he managed to find what I think is human poop near a place where a homeless guy sleeps, ate it, and then continued to go crazy in the house when we came back. He is now calmly asleep next to me after I gave him some anti-anxiety hemp chews.
Basically, the dog is normal. He's not doing anything wrong. I just want to know if he'll eventually settle and figure out the house, have his sleeping places, maybe not be constantly on top of me, and be able to navigate the house himself without biting everything. I keep wondering - am I cut out for this? This has shown me how beautiful my quiet life was in many ways, and I desperately miss it. The dog has also brought some beauty into my life through daily walks, bonding, and cuddles. But right now, I still have to monitor him 24/7, and it's just A LOT. I'm up and down. Some days it feels good, some days, like I today, I feel like I made a huge mistake, and if I could go back in time and undo it, I would.
Anywayyyy would love to hear some success stories of rescues settling into their homes, feeling comfortable, calm, and having their own space. I know about the 3-3-3 rule...but honestly, my fear is that his true personality is coming out now, and he's going to be way too high energy for me, and I'll be low-key on edge all the time. I do really love this guy, and I'm bonded to him, but I also want to enjoy my life and retain some peace.

2023.03.30 06:51 Jlynn41412 Please don’t drink the water, parents, pet owners, just people who drink water from the tap!!

I guess I’ll tag “News”. Um I don’t know, bottom line is- please don’t drink your city water, probably should start by saying that my household in the past few weeks have been gettin sick. Stomach issues. Our dogs just recently started 2 days ago all having stomach bug issues like after us- I have 2 mutts and they’re a bigger breed dog and they got over they’re puking in about 12-16hrs after they first started with the all the symptoms (just u could tell they weren’t acting right, not rly eating or able keep anything down, went out ate grass) My deaf Boston Terrier rescue babe hadn’t stopped the puking and like projectile puking so much for a 16 lb lil precious.. so I did think last night on the water maybe it’s not ok for them- u know what happened in East Palestine. We don’t drink the water in my house only because my kids only drink bottled water because that’s just what they prefer and honestly so do I, we drink bottled water most of the time but lately have been drinking more from the tap because just inflation! Lately everyone has been sick in my house… I’m getting totally off track here but bottom line- my Boston had to go to the vet today because she literally was beyond sick. Her vet said it’s the water! He’s seen a lot of cases of this and she has a sore throat due to the water! She’s on antibiotics and still so sick! If she’s not better by tomorrow I’m to to call! Please just don’t drink the water or give it to ur pets! I’m sorry I’m rly all over the place because I’ve been dealing with either sick kids, or a bunch of sick animals, and even myself and I truly believe it’s our water source.

2023.03.30 06:49 Oh_Hamburger [US-NY] [H] Game Boy, Game Gear, Dreamcast, PS1/2 games Game Boy, N64 Consoles N64 Manuals, Nintendo Posters, Misc Gaming-Related Items [W] PayPal, Venmo

Hi everyone,
I found a forgotten lot of games at my parents house when I went to visit. I thought I had sold all my games and systems in the past, but I was very wrong. Previously I sold my N64, NES, etc. games on eBay, but all the best ones were literally bought by Lukie Games. I'd rather list here than sell it to resellers.
Since I’ve got no confirmed transactions here, I’d be happy to do PayPal G&S to build community confidence. I’d eventually prefer to move away from it to other methods like F&F, Venmo etc. once it's felt I'm more established.
Nearly all of the games are in excellent condition and many come CIB. A number of the loose games (Game Boy) also have instruction manuals that are in excellent condition, which are noted in the table below. Most of the items should have pics in the links below, please let me know if I'm missing anything (Warning, photo dumps!):
I'm very happy to take more pictures for anyone who would like; please let me know whatever you need and I'll be glad to provide. I have twin 10mo old girls and one of them requires extra special attention, so I may need more time than the average person to get you them :) Apologies in advance!

All prices are shipped. Combining games would take some $ off the total. Open to offers for most listed, some are more firm than others.

2023.03.30 06:43 CiHoYin How to correctly select the input and output capacitors for developing a new wireless charging solution

With the advancement of technology, the functions and performance of mobile phones are getting better and better. In order to stabilize battery life, the battery is also designed to be larger and larger. In order to improve battery life, some manufacturers have adopted a dual battery design, but it still cannot solve the problem of battery life and portability. When the capacity cannot be increased, mobile phone manufacturers began to shift their targets to wired fast charging. When the rapid development of wired fast charging, some manufacturers began to develop convenient and beautiful mobile phones based on the requirements of some users. Wireless fast charging will eventually form a new wireless charging industry cluster, which will make it easier for people to travel and replenish electricity, while reducing the use of a large number of wiring harnesses, and helping green travel and carbon-neutral development concepts.
The 2022 Qatar World Cup set off a wave of football fever. The wonderful game has become the spiritual companion of many "night shift workers". When they watch the World Cup, radio technology has quietly entered their sights. Because the official World Cup ball "Journey" Al Rihla is powered by a small battery and charged by wireless charging, in order to obtain better design, sealing and stability. The wireless charging device provides a strong power guarantee for the official ball of the World Cup.
The development and trend of wireless charging
The wireless charging technology was installed on the mobile phone PALM for the first time in 2009, and it has amazed the world, but its subsequent development has been unknown, just like a dream in the world, it is only a flash in the pan in the eyes of the world. The time came to 2017. At the Apple Autumn New Product Launch Conference, it was announced for the first time that the entire series of the new iPhone 8 will use wireless charging technology. Wireless charging technology has begun to emerge in the field of mobile phones, driving the development and application of vehicle wireless charging, smart home, robots, drones and other fields.
Now cities are developing towards a "fast" pace of life. People are pursuing higher time management, and the utilization rate of trivial time is constantly increasing, which has led to a change in the direction of wireless charging devices to smaller and more efficient. In line with the tide of the times, leading wireless charging companies have developed the next generation of wireless charging with higher power, longer distance, and higher efficiency to meet consumer needs and improve consumer user experience.
Hard-Core Capacitor Requirements for Wireless Charging
The advantages of wireless charging determine the high requirements for capacitors. First, wireless charging has no wire winding, which is simple and beautiful. Capacitors with smaller volume and thinner thickness are required; secondly, referring to the characteristics of dexterity, portability and complex working environment, capacitors are required to have ultra-high-power hard-core properties while being small in size; thirdly, in technology research and development, capacitors Performance is the "throat" that restricts the further development of wireless charging.
At present, the commonly used capacitors for wireless charging equipment supporting the iPhone are chip multilayer ceramic capacitors, but they cannot break through the bottleneck of "smaller volume and thinner thickness". Due to the defect of the wireless charging effect, it cannot adapt to the new and high requirements of the wireless charging technology solution.
Therefore, YMIN capacitors are researching in the direction of ultra-thin capacitors with higher power, and develop "new capacitors" with better adaptability to wireless charging solutions. After unremitting efforts, YMIN finally developed a solid-state laminated aluminum electrolytic capacitor that meets the above requirements. Capacitors and polymer solid chip capacitors with small size, large energy, and high characteristic stability. Considering that some special and smaller wireless charging solutions require finer capacitors, smaller A-shell and B-shell polymer tantalum capacitors were developed.

2023.03.30 06:38 disnew258 34M I just got out of a bad breakup and I am looking to make a new friend to talk to about anything.

Hello all!
I am looking to make new friends to talk about anything to keep me distracted from negative thoughts. I just got out of a manipulative relationship and have no friends because I moved to a new city where my ex lives and I don't know anybody but my ex's friends. I am looking for anyone who is a great listener, supportive, open-minded and enjoys talking about anything. I am a great listener, has a sense of humor, and enjoy talking about traveling, anime, video games, etc. I live in the US.

2023.03.30 06:28 GiftSun Out of curosity, which province or city has the best police service from your personal experience?

In class, we were posed a question about justice and how people may feel they may want to carry out justice themselves as a result of the police being generally bad at their jobs. This was specifically about mob justice in cases of GBV. We were asked if we would carry out justice in the same manner as those who do mob justice and the ethics and morality of it. A lot of people said that we couldn't really trust the justice system as often things happen and justice isn't carried out.
After thinking about how police service affects the outcome of the judicial system, i then thought about how my answers to the discussion was coming from a place where i could always trust the police because in most of the cities i have lived in or had experience with the police in(Pretoria, Durban and parts of Johannesburg(suburbs specifically)) , the police were people i could trust. Then places like Mogale City, the police service was quite poor there and you can even see that in the Devil's Dorp documentary.
This then made me wonder how everyone else's experience with the police has been in their respective cities or provinces and how that has affected their pursuit for justice.
So what has your experience with the police been like and which province or city did you have this experience? Would you go to those police officers to handle your cases again or would you rather try to get justice by your own means?

2023.03.30 06:23 Initiative-Internal White Noise

Hello guys, a bit on me if you'd like: I'm a person who's always been fond for writing, but never really had my hand in it though, in fact, I wrote this incomplete should-have-been series a year ago, but never really completed it. I've only dabbled in it for a bit, writing scraps and throwing them away, but this is the only thing I found that was noteworthy and decided to share it, it's a copy-paste directly from the writing program, but I cleaned it up a bit of course, anyway, I really hope you guys enjoy!

You don't know who I am, or where I come from, you don't know anything, but if you're reading this that's good, it means you're alive, and maybe the world is better, maybe it's enjoyable, and there are parks again, and kids laughing and cheering. But that's all a maybe, an outcome with an unfair possibility of not happening, but I guess it makes sense, someone decided to destroy the world, and with the technology we had, it probably wasn’t that hard. What happened? well, I don't really know, all I know is that the world is falling apart, it's cracking, small cracks are apparent in almost every surface I come across that's been untouched or unmoved for a while, and they aren't normal cracks, they have a dim white glow, when I say dim I mean almost non-existent but the glow was still there nonetheless, and it feels like the world isn’t as bright, the world just lost all its life, all the grays got greyer and every other color looks dull and monotonous, but that’s just what came about.

After the first day, all available power disappeared, it was an exposition, a cardinal signal foreshadowing the apocalyptic future yet to come, of course, people started to panic. after one week the water shut off, at this point people had started to get irritable, and heated arguments were becoming a much too common thing to see in a lonely town like mine, then the third week hit, it's when the cracks became noticeable, it's also when people were being discovered, dead people, not many in the first few days, only two or three found a day. Soon enough people had run out of supplies, it's not like people were restocking the stores so no one could get any food or drink.

The streets were littered with bodies, most died from asphyxiation or gunshots, which was unlike the first killings, the first body found had his throat ripped out and his guts spilled, yet there was no blood anywhere on the body and no signs of a struggle, although I noticed this, I paid little attention to it. Nothing happened after that, aside from me staying in the basement which held enough food and water to sustain me for about a month and then some if I rationed carefully. It sucked in there, I had to have the little lamp in there off most of the time because of the lack of power, and the battery was already three-quarters full when I got down there, but I managed for thirty-two painfully slow and lightless days, then I emerged into my home.

I saw what I had expected, shattered glass everywhere, tables turned on their sides, and everything else characteristic of a ransacking, but I was not expecting to find a body stuck in a wall, his waist and below stuck in the wall, the wall wasn't broken, it was like something had made the wall a liquid, stuck him in, and made the wall solid again. I didn’t see any fractures in the wall's surface aside from the small squiggly white cracks that remained on almost every surface. At that point I realized I hadn't shed a single tear or even once felt the need to vomit, I felt ashamed of myself, I felt emotionless and lifeless, I could have gone ahead and made my morning coffee and watched the news without giving a care in the world about the body that lay in my home… too bad there was no coffee, or tv.
10/16/2027 Stock:

Note-1: After digging through my dad's closet and finding a false floorboard that always creaked, I gained access to two guns, a Remington Model 700 and a Colt 1911, and their corresponding ammunition.
Note-2: due to me living here for long enough I had the insight into areas of suspicion, an example is the floorboard, it’s unlikely I’ll get the luck to find hidden spaces like that again, but maybe when I’m skillful enough at looting, finding hidden spaces would become more common.
I gathered all of my supplies and put them in a backpack, aside from the M1911 and the 700, I put the M1911 in a holster on my hip and slung the 700 on my back, after I was ready, I left, the first thing I noticed was the lack of wildlife, I don’t live in a big city, it’s just a somewhat sparsely housed town, there’d always be an acre or two between homes at the very least, and birds were usually everywhere, but now I only see a few, only hear a few chirps here and there, I haven’t seen any terrestrial animals yet aside from insects, it seems there are fewer insects though as well. After I left my home I stood on the doorstep, I looked around at the dull scenery, I used to step outside to just look at the trees and the sky, but now everything is unappealing, I took the steps through the grass to my beat up car, all the glass was broken, I opened the door, sat inside and turned the ignition, nothing happened, as I expected cars don’t work anymore either, which put me on edge, what if guns don’t work anymore? But I silenced that thought, I still have a knife if guns won’t work.

I stepped out of the car and went to the trunk to see if anything was left of value. I opened it and found nothing, with no new supplies I decided the first place I’ll go to is the gas station, there was bound to be something there, even if it was only a little something. I started my two-mile trek to the gas station, I hiked a lot before all of this happened, two miles was nothing at all. There was a trail not too far from my house that I and my dog used to walk at, my dog died a few months back luckily enough, I wouldn’t have been able to support him now, not with the looming fear of starvation following me around. I had walked about one mile when all of a sudden everything went quiet, birds stopped chirping, the wind stopped blowing.

I got off the road and hid in a bush, I heard things moving, rustling the brush, stopping every now and then, almost as if they were looking for something, I’d hear what sounded like someone taking a knife to glass, it pained my ears and I felt they would start bleeding if the sounds lasted a second longer. I never saw them, I don’t know if it was because they were behind me or on the other side of the road in a ditch or something, but after 10 minutes it went away, nature’s sounds returned after 5 minutes, I had to wait another 10 minutes, my body, shocked and stiff, wouldn’t allow me to move. I stood and dusted myself off, since I didn’t know where the sounds came from I just started searching on the opposite bank of the road, no signs of anything being there, no tracks, no broken twigs, no blood.

I thought I had gone insane while wallowing in my lonesome, but then I remembered the birds reacted to whatever it was, or whatever they were, I don’t know how many there were, it constantly alternated between the sound of one of them and the sound of an uncountable amount. Happy to get out of the area, I continued to my destination. When I got to the gas station there was only one broken window, and a body with characteristics of the first killings laying on the floor near the register, a broken knife next to him. I looted his body without remorse or disgust. I found a pack of cigs and pocketed them there was also a scrunched paper.

I read it once, then twice, and even a third time, my stomach churned and felt like it was about to implode, it looked to be a message from the man’s daughter saying how much she loved him and she wants him to be safe because of all the “bad people”, a smiley face sat at the top of the paper, I flipped the paper over to find distinctly different handwriting, presumingly the man’s, it detailed how he was sorry, as well as how he’d been at the station for 3 days, said he couldn’t leave because if he did they would get him, his last words, being written hastily were hardly legible, but I could read enough to understand that the cracks in the world that appeared in the station were much more distinct than in other places, and those things could come in, but they were just staring at him tauntingly. I could barely hold myself back from puking, it wasn’t hard to look at someone’s corpse, it had no effect on me, but the second I realized that man had a family, and had ambitions and potential… I continued looking around the store. I realized there would be more loot on dead bodies because people don’t want to touch them. After looking through all the shelves and in all of the back rooms I found a lighter under the lip of a bottom shelf, lucky me.
I had hoped there would be more, more of everything, but there’s nothing, I’ll put another list of my supplies soon but at this rate, I won't make it to see next week, every single store has been ransacked completely, all the bodies always have empty already eaten foods, I don’t know what to do. I’ve not seen a single soul, everything is dead, not even the insects anymore, the birds are gone too, maybe it has something to do with the cracks, they’ve progressed enough to where they are visible from up to a foot away, I’ve had to hide from those screeching things a couple of times, still haven’t seen them yet, I realized when the wind abruptly stops they’ve appeared, it’s a good thing the birds were still singing those few days ago or I wouldn’t have realized the pattern, I’d probably be dead, just like everyone else.
Nothing much has happened, I’ve seen a bird or two, and it’s nice to know that at least for a little bit longer animals will still be alive, I’ve theorized that whenever I hear the noise it’s only one entity doing it, I think this because I’ve heard an exceptionally large commotion a way off, I assume there was two there. Fortunately, the screeching has only happened near me only once, I’ve heard them in the distance though, in the night while I sleep I hear them far off, searching, waiting for their sinister roulette to hit, hoping, anticipating the kill. I decided to head to the(SO AND SO) I’ll update this then or if something happens along the way.
I’ve come across a hunting stand in the woods, it’s a jackpot. There’s too much stuff to carry, there was a map too so I’ll mark the general location once I find a landmark to orient myself with, I’ll put a list after this log but there’s more to talk about. The fragmentation, It’s what I’ve come to call the cracks, is still spreading of course. I’m starting to see a noticeable separation between the two edges of some individual fragments, still not big enough to stick anything in but instead of being small white lines spread wildly around, They’ve become a prominent feature of every object, I’ve been to some areas where the fragmentation is severe, white snakes slithering across any surface they can find, trying to fracture this world, they do end up doing it I suppose, that’s how the screechers exist, but the breaks only hold for so long until they close. That’s what I think happens at least, it’s not like I’ve seen them yet, and as long as I continue to find zones with little to no fragmentation as I have been, I think I’ll be fine, I just hope my luck doesn’t run out.
I think I’m near (VarA), I should be out of the woods soon, but for now, I’ve got my bedroll down and am cooking some beans over the fire I’ve made, I’ll be fed for a while.
This may sound stupid but the fire keeps going out, the flames just disappear, no more heat. The charcoals lose their ember, everything becomes the regular temperature of the air around me. It still works though, there is no reliable frequency I can predict so sometimes it’ll die out as soon as I light it, and other times it takes an hour or two.
()()(())()()(()()()…I was walking when the wind stopped, the biggest problem for me at first was the fact there was nowhere to run, no depressions to dip in, I heard what sounded like a sharp camera shutter that immediately followed the deadening silence, the second I heard it I ran, a branch caught the strap of my bag, pulling it away from me. I couldn’t care though, all I could do was run, the trees vied for me, closing in. I was tripping and falling over and over, nearly impaling myself on the branches of trees I could hardly see.

I felt a push and fell over, I knew that running couldn’t have saved me, I knew it was there, right behind me, I couldn’t hear it though, I could only hear my breath but it wasn’t like that, I couldn’t hear it because it wasn’t making any noise, I thought for sure it would be screeching out for as long as it’s astral body would allow it to, but it didn’t, in fact, it lay on the ground, the white body, which looked as if it consisted of bolts of white grey lightning and string, pulsated, morphing into a consuming goop of unlight, and then back into it’s shimmering somewhat humanoid form, that process took a minute. I too lay there, my foot just a stone toss away from its hungry hand, the tips of its fingers eager to detach from its parent body, but was disallowed. I lay on the ground staring at it, and for some reason, it didn’t move, I took that opportunity to regenerate as much of my energy as possible, but from fear of losing my safety, I stood up slowly, emphasizing my steadiness, even though it probably detects me through a different means, I shouldn’t let it hear me, some caution is better than no caution at all.

I rose and took a gradual step back, but my back was met by a thick, gnarled arm of wood, as if that wasn’t enough, I had also stepped on a branch, probably from the same tree. The screecher stirred, its spectral head raised, maybe it used its sight for precision. It tried to raise the rest of its body, but its foot was stuck in a root, not like it was trapped under it, its foot was fused with the root. I guess it noticed it too because immediately the tone of its body got dimmer, I knew it was going to morph into the darkness, to free itself, to kill me. I took the chance I had, the 10s of seconds I had left were diminishing, and every second I wasted increased my chance of death. I turned, and immediately crouched and ducked under my guard that was the trees arm, I didn’t expect to have the keenness I had during that run, I’ve never been a particularly agile person, but in that moment I could see, without any blur caused by my abrupt motions, ducking and weaving through what seemed like the thickest forest I had ever seen.

I collapsed after only minutes of running, which was unsurprising though, the previous running and endless walking cost me an obscene amount of energy, taxing my body till the end, draining it of its power. I could hear them now, screaming, coming for me, it shouldn’t take as long as it’s taking them, but I guess they’re fighting each other, that’s why there is noise. I turned around and waited, I saw the two of them approaching me, they kept pushing and shoving each other, they were walking so slowly, as if they were sapped for energy, and the density of their body was low, it seems most of the strings of white grey abandoned the parent body for some reason, and with every step they took a few more disappeared, falling off into the ground. One of the entities fell to the ground, and the second took the opportunity and fell on top of it, tearing it to shreds, and repairing its own body with its meal, it seems it was only able to regain a menial percentage of its power back though, it’s speed only bolstered for a minute or so, still not fast enough to keep up with a hasty back step.

It fell to the ground after a while, and everything below its torso disappeared shortly after, it desperately sunk its claws into the soil, pulling with its full ability, trying to get me. It disappeared, shortly after, leaving quite a thick strand of vibrant white light. I pondered whether picking it up or not would be a good idea, in the end, I decided a little glowing string couldn’t hurt me that much. I plucked it from its place on the ground and immediately felt a strong, radiant sensation, a pulsating heat and cold piercing my body as if it was filling me with energy, I dropped it, even holding it for a few seconds easily removed most of the exhaustion from my body, I wanted to grab it again for another hit of pure energy, but I felt if I did I would explode, my body was not meant for this type of power, although it seemed capable enough to absorb what I presume was a little bit of it, I think it’s capacity is quite high, and powering what was but a little bit of myself was probably the least intensive thing this string could do.

2023.03.30 06:22 schadenfreudiaan "Asheville Weirdness" 101: T's "Resources" for the New, Normal, Neurodiverse, Bored, Inexperienced, and/or "Aspiring Unconventional"

So, you've heard that Asheville is weird. Perhaps that's even a part of the reason that you moved here! But now that you're here, you're wondering.. how do I go about "getting started" as an Ashevillian?
Here are some LEGAL, AFFORDABLE, & OCCASIONALLY CREATIVE "solutions" to your problems:
1) I want to get to know some new people in the area so that I can form some genuine friendships and/or relationships, but I'm anxious about it and/or am not sure where to start:
That's why this subreddit exists! There's clearly an unmet need here, and it's my hope that we'll be able to do some really neat things with this community. Meet-ups are in the works, as is a private Facebook group, and I would love to put together things like a group chat to help people start to connect (we've got a lot of introverts in the house who would prefer to get to know each other before meeting up!).
I'm also considering starting a trauma-support group, as I have PTSD and know that I'm not alone in that respect (thank you to everyone who's reached out!). It could be fun and empowering to set up something like self-defense classes, even, or we could just get a group-chat going (or group yoga!).
At this point, finding/deciding on various meeting spots that will work for various people's hobbies, locations, etc., as well as figuring out everyone's availability for meet-ups are a priority for me; suggestions are more than welcome! We have a lot of people who are into trivia, or beer, or hiking, etc.. great! Now we just need to start on coordinating/organizing various groups/meet-ups, I suppose. Keeping an eye out for new people who are introducing themselves and welcoming them warmly should always remain a priority, of course; that's kind of the point of this subreddit's existence! :)
2) I feel like going somewhere or doing something but don't know where to go and don't have anybody to go with. Where am I pretty likely to have a good time if I decide to venture out?
I'm honestly a bit of a hermit, but we've had a lot of really great suggestions throughout various threads in this subreddit, so I did my best to compile that information into some suggestions here: - this is the way, and I know this to be true on a personal level. - I'm seeing a lot of comments from people who frequent this place, and they seem to be positive, mostly! Please correct me if I'm wrong; your experience(s) may vary. - lots of people recommending this place! Seems like it could be fun for a meet-up (and/or to get your pup's energy out); I'm not sure how busy it is or how it's set up, though. - super chill tea place if you're one of those people who sometimes likes to just do their own thing around other people who are doing their own things (cough, cough, me). - apparently, this is a really good place for a date night! It's a little spendy, but it's classy, non-threatening, and tasty, per the overwhelming majority of responses that I read. - great alternative hang-out for non-drinkers! Sounds very chill. - opposite end of the spectrum; local dive bar with local drunks. - pretty sure this is the location that you guys were talking about the other day? There's also the South Slope location. See, also:,,,, and so on.
Obviously, leaving the house and doing things is not my strong point! Please feel free to add whatever suggestions you may have below; knowledge is power, and I typically love to see it shared freely!
3) You know how asheville is always getting inundated with "give me your plug" & "sell me dr*gs" posts? If you don't wanna be that guy but do enjoy cannabis, then.. may I suggest: - honestly my favorite legal option! They're a bit on the spendy side, but it's worth it, IMHO (they've got, like, actual PhD's working there, and I trust them quality/safety-wise). - local business with multiple locations if you prefer to do your shopping in-person! They also have kava, kratea, and a variety of non-alcoholic beverage options. The employees have always been really chill and sweet to me; they're happy to help you get started out. - if you're broke and are having a rough time, these guys will hook you up. Quick shipping. I try to support small businesses, but sometimes, it's just not financially feasible, and the clearance section here is CHEAP cheap & has some decent-quality brands. Also, please call or text 988 if things get really bad, friend. The world is a better place with you in it.
Anyway, as the majority of reasonable people realize, once you've put down roots and have formed healthy friendships here, your "plugs" will come along naturally, if you would like to go down that path. I fully support/commend sober folks! but I'm also not going to the gate-keep "legal/affordable cannabis" options here. Honestly, I find it a bit odd that North Carolina, which is advertised as "one of the best states for veterans," doesn't allow medical cannabis use for people suffering from PTSD.
4) You know how your new friends keep talking about signs and planets and houses and, like, crystals and protection jars? Welp, here's where you can figure out what the hell is going on: - literally just plug in your DOB and time/location of birth and read away. Who knows; it may even resonate with you! This is a pretty solid source; their synastry charts are also spot-on (if you wanna impress an astrology chick, this is the way). - if you found what you read above interesting, then this site elaborates quite a bit more with descriptions of your placements and what it all means. Remember that while we all have our weak spots, we are capable of inner work. I have some placements that I don't like (Venus in Gemini comes to mind!), but I look at it as an opportunity for growth, nowadays. - Sarah's way over the pond, but I love her so much! She's honestly cheaper and better than any licensed counselor that I've seen in the 15+ years that I've been in therapy (yes, that says a lot about the state of healthcare in America; no, you should not judge us). I'm honestly tempted to gatekeep her because she's legit changed my life (and is getting very busy). - in a similar vein, ADELLE DOES NOT FUCK AROUND. Is she an actual psychic? Who knows. Will she give you the brutal reality check that you need for $5? Yes. - if you're looking for a meaningful gift for a special person, this is very Asheville. - basically the most "Asheville" shop in Asheville. They will help you figure out if your ex is trying to curse you. Black cat adoption events. I enjoy them!
It's cool if you don't believe in astrology and whatnot. I come from a family of engineers and sneered at it myself up until a few years ago (after lots of therapy). It's a harmless hobby at worst and can be utilized as a tool to increase self-awareness and encourage growth, best-case scenario, in my opinion.
5) So, I've never lived in a "real" city before, and I'm not sure how to feel about the homeless people, drug use, and mental illness that I've witnessed here. What can I do to process this? - honestly, getting involved in the community (and giving back to the community in the process) is a great way to begin to understand your new reality, IMHO. - you can volunteer to help victims of domestic violence here. - also a popular place to volunteer! - love animals? help save them (and meet other people who love animals in the process!). See, also: - affordable counseling; they are wonderful people, in my experience. - other mental-health resources.
Also, read up on culture shock! It gets better. Things like writing in a journal daily can really help; also, here is a link to where I have accumulated a bunch of mental-health resources:
The main thing that bothers me about asheville is how savagely people who are asking genuine, innocent questions can get attacked. I grew up in a small town in Northern MN, then moved down to Minneapolis, then to Clyde, then to Asheville, and so on, so I'm no stranger to feeling like a stranger. I know that there are some really solid "locals" who feel the same way, and hopefully, this subreddit will help bring out the best in everyone involved (including myself, of course!). Let's keep this sub "clean."
Anyway, that's all I've got, folks! I hope that you're all having a good night. Please feel free to add to, correct, or expand on anything that I may have have gotten wrong in the comments; I'm doing my best, but a freakin' SWAT team was at my apartment complex earlier, and I'm still a little shaken up!

2023.03.30 06:19 TTCBoy95 How can we get people to support for road tolls?

Or congestion taxation. A lot of people are so ingrained that the only thing they pay to drive is gas. They sometimes forget insurance and maintnece is a major cost. But even worse is they fail to realize how the city keeps getting broke because the nature of driving is just so expensive for an entire society.
Look at all the unrepaired roads and no money for other transportation services. Look at the Gardiner Expressway in Toronto, Canada. There's a lot of talk for removing. Yet tollling isn't seen as a very popular opinion. How can we get people to support road tolling, even a small price? Not only would there be fewer cars wearing down the roads but the small money could bandaid the money problem. Maybe it could even fund transit.

2023.03.30 06:16 ForeverBlue101_303 How did you guys discover Keeper of the Lost Cities?

Hey folks, I know this may be beating a dead horse, or dead alicorn in this case but when it comes to Keeper of the Lost Cities, how did you first get into the series?
To me, the way I discovered and got into KotLC is, interestingly enough, with Percy Jackson. I used to be a fan of the book series and I was with the fandom hoping for a new adaptation as I agreed that the movies were failures in the true sense of the word. I especially hoped it was animation as I thought the medium would've actually been better for Percy Jackson, in terms of doing the books justice and bringing something original to the table, and even some fellow fans agreed with me until the announcement was made that an adaptation was greenlit and unfortunately, it was live-action.
I was not happy with this and when I expressed my displeasure and disappointment with how Disney and Rick Riordan chose live-action, the fans tried defending the decision, which included parroting Rick's reasons, like how apparently animation doesn't hold enough weight to carry a story compared to live-action, and then, they got pretty rude, condescending, and really disrespectful for my opinions and one Twitter fan account (who will remain anonymous) even blocked me when I expressed how I believed this show will be so bad, along with how they even gaslit me regarding their support of an animated adaptation, as in pretending they were never supportive of an animated adaptation to begin with. That was the sign of how I thought that the PJO fandom was toxic and along with how I think, and still think, the show will be bad in live-action, I wanted nothing with Percy Jackson, will not watch the show or read the book and, of course, not engage with a toxic group of people I thought were my friends so goodbye and good riddance.
Then, I tried finding a good series of books to fill the void left by Percy Jackson and I've encountered many books I fell in love with, including this one. I fell in love with the story, the characters, especially Sophie, the settings, lore, everything, regardless of flaws. The only disappointing thing is how Shannon originally wanted an animated show, only for it to become a generic live-action movie but I do hope those plans get scrapped so it can be the animated series Shannon originally wanted.
So this was my story on how I got into Keeper of the Lost Cities, a series I will hold close to my heart.

2023.03.30 06:15 Muddled_Melon Ecchi that has realistically drawn women

I am looking for manga/LN/anime that is ecchi, but has realistically drawn women. Some examples would be women not having larger than life breasts and butts, and having an average figure (some chubbies is also fine).
My girlfriend used to vehemently hate any sort of fan service (nothing wrong with this), but now she is going out of her comfort zone and wanting to try.
Any suggestions are greatly appreciated. Thank you for your help and time.
