2023.05.31 19:00 sobster14 25K in CC debt Coming of unemployment

Got Married last December and spent some a chunk of my savings on the wedding. Got laid off in January and went from a monthly income of ~8K to 0. Was on a long term contract to my LLC so I’m unable to claim unemployment which exacerbated m y CC situation. Thankfully my wife and I are dual income and she brings in roughly 85K per year. I have landed a new job that pays 95K per year. Just want to plan how to pay the debt down the best way.
This job has a 90day introductory period so I don’t want to jump into paying the debt down right away incase something were to happen.
My car is paid off and my wife works from home typically so we don’t spend a crazy amount on gas thankfully even though we live in California. We have about 18K in cash on hand between savings checking account. My wife really dosnt wanna dip into the savings if we can avoid it but my APR is gonna start kicking in 2 months on 3 of my cards
Our monthly expenses for living are $3000 mortgage $215 Utilities (gas,electric, internet) $567 - wife’s car note $110 insurance $75 / week Groceries $100/ week in Gas $40/month for cat food
What’s the best strategy for me to tackle this in ?

2023.05.31 18:52 Tuuckbrah No cb EVER WC challenge run

Per the title how possible would it be to do a challenge run where the only rule is you may never use a cb of any kind? I see it as annoying, but not too crazy. You’d have to likely avoid nations with lots of permaclaims, probably avoid hordes and of course never go past dip tech 22. Diplo ideas sound helpful. Do you guys see any scenario where you’d get soft locked with no unjustified demands available? If you do accidentally get a claim from a mission or event then you can declare on the nations ally or wait for the claim to expire.

Best trading day in my 3 month's journey 🥳

Since BANKNIFTY was at an all time high and NIFTY too had made considerable gains, I was expecting a correction sometime this week. I bought PUT options in dips yesterday and spread it across Jun 1 and Jun 8 expiry, yesterday I was at 2.8L in loss but held onto position overnight and today had almost reached +6.4L with partial profit booking throughout the day finally ending with 5.03L, I have booked most of the profits and a took some small position in call options hoping the debt ceiling is passed today.

Randomized Reddit TDA Episode 8 (VOTE IN THE COMMENTS)

Episode 8- Sports Challenge
The Killer Grips arrive with their luggage. Scott arrives in his tacky tuxedo, and begins calling out award winners.
“Best Psychological Torture” goes to…Shawn and “Least Terrible Navigator” goes to….Taylor!
Taylor gets up and takes her award. Rock and Jasmine look nervous. Scott explains it’s the last award of the night.
The “Closest Cut to Elimination” Award goes to….Jasmine!
Rock is bummed and takes the Walk of Shame down to Lame-o-Sine and is driven away.
However, a limousine pulls up after Rock is driven away and emerging from it is….Emma?!
Scott explains that Emma has taken the Total Drama team to court and thus she will be reinstated into the game as a member of the Killer Grips! Jasmine and Shawn are incredibly upset about this. Taylor is happy, runs up and gives Emma a hug. Emma says she’s so glad to be back, and is so proud of Taylor for how far she came since being the first person eliminated last year. Taylor says in an interview she’s happy to get one of her own friends back, Emma says she doesn’t give a damn about Taylor but is always more than happy to get an easy alliance to reach that million dollars.
When the grips return, Dawn is shocked to see Emma is back and Emma is shocked Dawn lasted this long. Emma claims a bunk bed that used to belong to Miles and Sky, she disinfects it from Miles’ “Natural Oils”.
The next morning, Duncan mistakes Scott’s horn playing for Harold’s snoring and tries strangling him, but Jacques tells him to wait until the merge. He’s still technically their teammate. Dawn swipes Emma’s PDA, which was given to her as a competitive advantage. The two fight over it. Scott says to break up the fights…until the challenge that is. He explains that the network has been observing the teams over the last couple episodes and ranked them based on individual athletic abilities. Both teams will take on athletic challenges, with a tie-breaker in case it goes to 2-2. They’ll be going in order from strongest to the weakest.
Jasmine clearly has the height advantage, and is able to use it against Duncan. However, Duncan reveals in an interview that he’s always been a fan of wrestling…especially pro-wrestling. He knows a dirty tactic or two.
Duncan head-butts Jasmine, goes between her legs, and uses a piercing to slash Jasmine behind her knee. He puts her into a guillotine choke hold, and Jasmine taps out. Duncan’s declared the winner! One point to the Screaming Gaffers! Shawn complains Duncan cheated, Scott says he only watches Pro-Wrestling and thinks it’s legit. Jacques tells Shawn to shut it and get ready to lose.
Shawn bounces the ball several times, and launches it behind him. Jacques laughs and says it won’t be coming back, however the ball bounces off a sign, hits Jacques on the head and into the basket. Jacques says that was pure luck!
Jacques puts on a classy display using his natural athletics, when he makes a huge leap to dunk the basketball, Shawn whacks him between the legs with his own basketball. Jacques drops and Scott declares Shawn to be the winner! Both teams are tied!
Harold says he’s a pro at Badminton, Emma says she got a scholarship for it. The two are incredibly evenly matched, however Emma’s stronger cardio allows her to push herself past Harold’s limits. Harold eventually passes out and Emma is declared the winner! Another point to the Killer Grips! They take the lead!
The bell rings. Dawn says she’s not one prone to violence due to her pacifist nature. Scott explains that’s why she’s somehow below Harold despite being more athletic than him. Taylor says she’s not a pacifist and WALLOPS Dawn for a TKO! Scott declares Taylor to be the winner! The Killer Grips win!
Duncan glares at Jacques, Harold, and Dawn. Scott says it’s Golden Scott award time!
Duncan suggests the audience vote out Dawn, Harold’s pathetic but at least he tried.
Jacques suggests the audience vote out Dawn, he has no tolerance for pacifists.
Harold suggests the audience vote out Jacques. While Duncan and Jacques are both awful people, Duncan at least won his event.
Dawn suggests the audience should vote out Jacques, his evil aura is not compensated by providing them victories.

2023.05.31 18:44 CalmGains Earning plays for CRWD, CRM, AI, OKTA, and JWN

Let's do the shotgun approach. I'm going to be discussing all five earning plays in one post, and then put my conclusions at the end. All of these stocks are putting out earnings today, after hours. Yesterday I posted about HPQ going down, and it went down, puts up ~80%. So let's get into the details of this post.
Starting with CrowdStrike Holdings (CRWD), where analysts are predicting earnings of $0.509 per share compared to earnings of $0.310 per share in the same quarter of the previous year. They are also expecting the company to report $677.4 million, an increase of over the prior year quarter when the company reported $487.8 million. With regard to the current fiscal year, analysts expect a profit per share of $2.33, while the previous year saw a profit of $1.54.
CrowdStrike’s first-quarter fiscal 2024 results are likely to reflect the benefits of the continued solid demand for its products, given the healthy environment of the global security market. The increasing number of people logging into employers' networks has triggered a greater need for security and might have spurred the demand for CRWD’s products in the fiscal first quarter. A strong pipeline of deals indicates the same.
Stellar revenue growth in subscriptions might have contributed significantly to the first quarter’s top line. Further, the increasing number of net new subscription customers may have acted as a tailwind.
Moreover, CrowdStrike’s collaboration with Amazon Web Services (AWS) is an upside, benefiting the company from its products’ availability on the AWS platform. The expansion in the volume of transactions through Amazon’s AWS Marketplace, growth in co-selling opportunities with AWS salesforce and the uptake of AWS service integrations are likely to have contributed to CRWD’s earnings in the to-be-reported quarter.
However, elevated expenses for enhancing sales and marketing capabilities and increased investments in research and development are likely to have weighed on the company’s fiscal first-quarter bottom line.
Next is the software-as-a-Service (SaaS) provider Salesforce (CRM), wallstreet expects CRM to post adjusted earnings of $1.61 per share, which is on the higher end of the company’s guidance and nearly double that of the Q1FY23 figure of $0.98 per share. CRM has consistently beaten earnings expectations in the past eight quarters, with a strategically built portfolio covering virtually all aspects of digital transformation. So far this year, the stock has gained 59.9%, outperforming the S&P 500's 10% gain.
Similarly, the analysts expect Salesforce to post revenue of $8.18 billion, which is also on the higher end of the company’s outlook and represents a 10.4% year-over-year growth. However, sequentially, the revenue expectation shows a modest decline of 2.4%.
Salesforce’s first-quarter performance is likely to have gained from its focus on building and expanding relationships with leading brands across industries and geographies. Also, significant growth opportunities in the public sector are expected to have been a tailwind in the fiscal first quarter.
The company’s ability to offer integrated solutions for customers’ business problems is likely to have been a key growth driver. The firm’s products, like Trailhead and myTrailhead, are helping companies through their transformation processes and increasing business scale with modern technology.
Salesforce’s quarterly performance is likely to have benefited from the robust demand environment as customers are undergoing a major digital transformation. The customer relationship management software provider’s focus on introducing more aligned products per customer needs is expected to have boosted its top line in the quarter.
Also, the acquisitions of Slack, Mobify and Vlocity are anticipated to have aided CRM’s top line during the to-be-reported quarter. Growth across its four major cloud service offerings, Sales Cloud, Service Cloud, Platform, and Other and Marketing & Commerce Cloud, is anticipated to have boosted Salesforce’s subscriptions and supported its revenues.
However, a decline in software spending by small and medium businesses amid the macroeconomic uncertainty due to the pandemic and the ongoing Russia-Ukraine war might have affected Salesforce’s fiscal first-quarter performance. Further, stiff competition from Oracle and Microsoft is a concern, along with forex headwinds.
On May 26, Goldman Sachs analyst Kash Rangan reiterated his Buy rating on CRM stock ahead of its earnings report. Rangan has set a price target of $325, implying a massive 50.8% upside potential from current levels.
Rangan is highly optimistic about Salesforce’s quarterly winning streak and the potential tailwind from the artificial intelligence (AI) race. Even so, the analyst cited that this will be the first time that CRM will recognize a sequential decline in subscription revenue.
Despite that, Rangan noted, “As a system of record with a plethora of customer data that can help train its LLM (large language models), CRM can benefit from Generative AI. As the macro begins to inflect, we see CRM being well positioned as it realizes the benefits from sales efficiency efforts and workforce reductions of recent quarters.” Salesforce said it will integrate its generative AI Einstein GPT into every facet of the company - sales, service, marketing, commerce and IT interaction. Pricing details were not disclosed.
I know everyone wants to hear it, next is C3.ai (AI). There's no denying it, the growing popularity of artificial intelligence, in particular ChatGPT, is more than just hype. It is real. As you may have noticed, one company that's riding high on the AI wave is C3.ai, which has seen its stock more than doubled as interest among investors surge. The stock has gone on a breathtaking run over the past thirty days, rising close to 90%, compared with the 3% rise in the S&P 500 index. On a year-to-date basis the performance looks even more astonishing, skyrocketing 194% compared with the 10% rise in the S&P 500 index. How much higher can its shares go?
C3.ai is benefiting from the increasing adoption of its services, including C3 Generative AI Product Suite, C3 AI Ex Machina (wasn't that a movie?), C3 AI ESG and C3 AI CRM. An expanding product portfolio is expected to have remained a key catalyst in driving demand for the company’s fully-integrated AI products in the fiscal fourth quarter.
During the to-be-reported quarter, the company made significant development toward its Generative AI platform, facilitating the ease of use and the capability of its enterprise AI applications. This is expected to have driven the top line.
C3.ai has been benefiting from strengthening industry and technology-specific partnerships. From its industry partnerships with the likes of Baker Hughes in oil & gas & chemical markets and Booz Allen in government defense sector, C3.ai has been leveraging domain expertise to expand its customer footprint.
With its tech partners, C3 has been benefiting from strength in its sales capabilities besides tech and product functionality. Partnerships with the likes of Google Cloud, Amazon Web Services (AWS), Azure and Accenture are expected to have driven the top line in the to-be-reported quarter.
Aside from recently announcing that its generative AI product suite is now available as a public offer on Alphabet's Google (GOOG , GOOGL) Cloud Marketplace, the company also issued preliminary results that included positive cash flow in FQ4. This suggests that the company’s $800 million cash currently on its balance sheet will grow. Its management has sought to change the company’s business model, shifting the business away from short-term revenues to a transaction-based pricing method, while boosting long-term revenues by growing its customer base.
Those initiatives appear to be working with growth rates starting to re-accelerate. CEO Thomas Siebel said, "Since we announced C3 Generative AI, we've had intense interest from current customers and prospects to get these capabilities deployed and in use across their systems.” The product suite features enterprise search, allowing businesses to search across their database to locate and retrieve relevant information. On Wednesday, the company will look to prove that it is here to stay and has a sustainable path towards profitability.
For the three months that ended April, Wall Street expects the Redwood City, Calif.-based company to post a per-share loss of 17 cents on revenue of $71.32 million. This compares to the year-ago quarter when the loss was 21 cents per share on revenue of $72.32 million. For the full year, the loss is expected to be 46 cents per share, narrowing from 73 cents a year ago, while full-year revenue of $265.67 million would rise 5.1% year over year.
The company still has a lot to prove and important questions to answer. Namely, does it have a strong enough moat to establish a leadership position in enterprise AI software? C3.ai ended Q3 with 236 customers, the same total reported at the end of Q2. In other words, there has been no sequential growth in the customer base, suggesting there’s a lack in competitive advantage and/or product interest.
As noted earlier, a few quarters ago, the company moved towards a new pricing model to help onboard new customers at a lower startup cost. This will allow the company to charge more when these same customers utilize the software at higher levels. As a result of the pricing change, there was a noticeable dip in Q3 revenues. Although the company surpassed consensus estimates, producing Q3 revenue $66.67 million, the figure declined 4.45% year over year.
The Q3 adjusted loss of 6 cents per share did surpass estimates by 16 cents. Despite the nearly 5% dip in revenues, the stock soared higher. Investors looked beyond the current numbers and instead focused on the fact that the trough in revenues had been reached. The belief is that the company’s consumption-based pricing model is now poised to generate even more revenue than the subscription model it once used. As such, the guidance the company provides today will be a key factor in the stock’s near-term direction.
Strong demand for the company’s Enterprise AI software, driven by accelerated digital modernization across major industries, is expected to have aided fiscal fourth-quarter performance.
Okta, Inc (OKTA) is next. analysts expect earnings of $0.118 per share compared to losses of $0.270 per share from the same quarter last year. They expect Okta to report sales of $511.0 million, an increase of 23.16% over the same period last year. Looking at the full year, analysts expect a profit of $0.760 per share. In the previous year there was a profit of $0.040 per share.
The company’s first-quarter fiscal 2024 results are expected to reflect the benefits of increased use cases of identity solutions and an expanding product portfolio.
Okta is expected to have experienced strong demand for its Workforce and Customer Identity solutions. Continuous innovation in its solutions have helped Okta score notable enterprises such as Sonos, Hewlett Packard Enterprise, MassMutual and OpenAI. Its products’ ability to automate processes, secure data and reduce costs has been another positive.
Demand for the company’s solutions has been strong due to the deployment of cloud and hybrid IT, digital transformation projects and the adoption of Zero Trust security. The momentum is expected to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
These factors are expected to have expanded the customer base in the fiscal first quarter. In the fiscal fourth quarter, Okta added 550 customers, bringing the total customer count to 17,600, up 17% year over year. Customers with more than $100K in Annual Contract Value increased 27% year over year.
However, Okta is expected to have faced challenges in execution and heightened attrition. Challenging macro environment and unfavourable forex are potential headwinds. These factors are expected to have hurt its fiscal fourth-quarter prospects.
Finally, let's take a look at Nordstrom (JWN). Their first-quarter fiscal 2023 results are expected to reflect the significant impacts of decelerating demand trends. Reduced consumer spending amid lower income groups, stemming from the tough macroeconomic environment, has been hurting revenues across both banners. Analysts expect losses of $0.105 per share compared to losses of $0.060 per share in the same quarter of the previous year. They also are expecting the company to report $3.16 billion, an decrease of 11.59% over the prior year quarter. With regard to the current fiscal year, analysts expect a profit per share of $1.87, while the previous year saw a profit of $1.69.
Management expects the impact of the winding down of Canada operations to hurt revenues in fiscal 2023. The impacts of the closure are likely to get reflected in the fiscal first-quarter results. I anticipate a decline in revenues in the to-be-reported quarter. Moreover, I expect sales to decline for both the Nordstrom banner and the Nordstrom Rack segment.
In order to maintain healthy inventory levels, Nordstrom has been undertaking additional markdowns. The higher markdowns have been weighing on gross margin, which is likely to have continued in the to-be-reported quarter.
However, the company is committed to enhancing customer experience via its Closer to You strategy, optimized supply chain and better efficiency. These endeavors are expected to have slightly offset the aforementioned declines.
Nordstrom has been focused on technology advancement by boosting e-commerce and digital networks, supply-chain channel improvement, and marketing efforts. The digital business has been witnessing gains from improved digital traffic across both Nordstrom and Nordstrom Rack, as well as increased utilization of Buy Online, Pick Up In-Store service. Its mobile app has also been performing well. Alongside these, the integration of Rack.com into Nordstrom.com is anticipated to have contributed to the company's top line in the to-be-reported quarter.
So what to do for earnings?
Just to keep it sweet and simple, I'm getting calls on CRWD, CRM, AI, and OKTA. And I'm getting puts on JWN. I don't expect all of them to hit, I just like to throw my money on the table and see what flies. Keep in mind tho, as with all my other posts, these are entirely meant to just educate people about what we tend to look for when making an earning prediction. It by no means can be considered financial or investment advice.

Story: In the early 20th century, as Japan expanded its influence across the globe, it established a royal marriage with France unifying the two nations. This unification led to a significant cultural exchange between the two nations, including their culinary traditions. Over time, the Japanese and French cuisines began to blend, resulting in the birth of a unique fusion cuisine. The Tempura Croissant Sandwich is believed to have originated in the mid-20th century in the bustling streets of Paris. The story goes that a Japanese chef, trained in traditional tempura techniques, settled in Paris and decided to experiment with incorporating the delicate, flaky croissant, a staple of French pastry, into the Japanese tempura style.
Being familiar with the French love for sandwiches, the chef sought to create a dish that combined the best of both culinary worlds. Drawing inspiration from the French croque-monsieur, a classic ham and cheese sandwich, the chef decided to substitute the traditional filling with tempura ingredients. To create a harmonious balance, the chef carefully selected ingredients that complemented each other in terms of texture and flavor. Shrimp, with its delicate sweetness, was chosen as the star of the dish. Thinly sliced zucchini and carrot were added to provide a refreshing crunch and subtle sweetness. The chef then prepared a light and crispy tempura batter, using his knowledge of Japanese techniques. By combining the French croissant with Japanese tempura, the chef aimed to achieve a juxtaposition of textures: the flaky, buttery croissant against the crispy, airy tempura coating.
Today, this dish stands as a testament to the rich and diverse culinary heritage born from the Japanese France. It represents the creativity, innovation, and harmonious blending of two distinct culinary traditions, showcasing the endless possibilities that emerge when cultures collide in the realm of food. As word of this innovative fusion dish spread, it quickly gained popularity among locals and visitors alike. The Tempura Croissant Sandwich became a symbol of the unique cultural exchange between Japan and France!

2023.05.31 18:43 NoBuy8212 Is this any good?

Hi folks - can I get some critique on this please?
Does it feel too simplistic, basic. Should I be more dynamic and varied with sentence structure? Does it feel amateurish?
This is like the 2nd chapter of a short story
So Joe Montague settled into his new life. He rose with the dawn sun. Shovel in hand, he worked the backyard, clearing it of the gnarled nettle bushes. He removed the rusted sheets of metal roofing the shed, and hammered in a new set. On Friday, he tripped to the mill seeking employment but was told to return the following month. He ran errands for Ms Darle. But as much as he tried to quieten it, the harp strings of his old life grew louder in Joe's mind. No, this was not a yearning for his wife but his old friends: Dean, Mearl and Arnie. The friends he'd known before leaving for the war. During the nights, Joe stood by the window and peered into the darkness covering the town. His mind reeled back to those nights he'd sit in watch, waiting for men to show their faces, waiting to catch the moon's glint on their pointed pistols. In the second week of his stay, he turned in his bed often, itching to make a visit to the old pack of rats. Then on Sunday morning, as he hefted a bag of flour and a carton of milk back to the house for Ms Darle, Joe decided would go to see his old friends.
Ms Darle was sitting in the kitchen taking a call when Joe set down the grocery. "Now you listen here Morty. I have never once in my life cheated you, even when we were kids. Even when ma and pa and all the others took you for a fool." Ms Darle stood from the chair, pressing a hand at her temple. Joe did not think it proper for him to stay and he walked out into the hall. "Now that house belongs to me too Morty,' he heard the old lady say before he stepped out the front door. It wasn't the first time he'd heard her despair. The calls had grown more frequent in the past week, and not once did the house phone ring.
The morning skies hung clear and blue. The sun beat hot. Joe walked down Mulvane Street on his way to Sal's Bar. Before he was shipped out to fight, Joe would go there with his pack of friends. It was hardly a drinkery. In fact, at any given time the Sal had only a keg of beer. One keg his uncle at the shipyard would have slipped him. The two men would split the profits. The bar was in a small room in an alley behind a row of shops. Inside, Sal would be sitting on a stool against the far wall, the keg set beside his feet. On a small table he had glasses, ready to be dunked following an order. There was no counter. The cash register was Sal's pocket in which he also held a liquor licence. He'd found the old piece of paper on the streets one day, outside a storage unit. He took it home and carefully bleached it before he etched in his name, not pressing too hard with the pen. Before the war, Joe, Dean, Mearl and Arnie could be found there every weekend. Joe turned into Finch Street, a road lined with low rise homes and a small church right in the middle of it. At the end of the road was the alley. Between two tree trunks, his eyes caught Ms Heartmeyer stood outside the church. The last time he'd seen her, she held his hand and told him to be careful. A shyness came over Joe, and he turned his head towards the ground. He did not want to be seen. He did not like the shame which came about him when he spoke to God fearing. He thought the gravel scratched too loud against his shoes. "Joe, is that you?" she asked, stepping along the footpath, her head tilted for a better look.

2023.05.31 18:40 Cymbylyne The Four Winds Off Montauk Point [NYC]

Where are the other remote workers, freelancers, and self-employed in the metro NY/NJ/easily commutable CT areas?
Pre-pandemic, there were WFH people seemingly everywhere on here and other online platforms looking to meet and co-work at home, the library, or Starbucks.
I used to have a reliable network for weekend daytime co-working and coffee buddies. These pandemic years feel and look like an abandoned saloon from Westworld.
Give a holler if you're out there and waiting to dip your big toe or left leg back into co-working.
HMU via email if you have after-work and/or weekend availability to travel in Manhattan or host within thirty minutes of Midtown Manhattan.

2023.05.31 18:40 ryothbear The most fiery mage build

Hey all - I'm starting a campaign next week, and I really want to go full-on elementalist blaster caster with this one. So far, the only characters in the campaign who are semi-decided on are me and a dragonborn cleric, so I don't think I will need to carry too much of the support (thank god). We're starting at level one, and I'm considering this for my build:
Fire Genasi, (Gold) Draconic Sorcerer
Cantrips: Fire Bolt, Prestidigitation, Mind Sliver, Gust, Produce Flame (racial ability)
Level 1: Grease, Shield
It's obviously low-level right now, but I'm happy with this so far. What I'd like some feedback on is what I should dip for later on. I am planning to wait til after level 5 to do so, but debating between taking 2 levels in Genielock for flavofamily drama/thematic elements plus invocations, or 2 levels in Evocation Wizard for Spell Sculpt.
There were some old threads I found that slightly discussed this, but I was wondering if anyone has experience with dipping into eitheboth of these classes, and which would be better in terms of raw destructive power and flashy, fire themed spells that I can get dramatic with. Other threads mentioned that Warlock can actually make the Sorcerer elements weaker, but I'm not sure how relevant that would be unless we get to very high levels. I love the flavor, so is it really that bad? And if I go with Efreeti, is the overlap in spells too much?
I decided against full Wizard because I enjoy being social and often default to being the party face, or at least having the option of it, so having low CHA is a no from me lol

2023.05.31 18:37 Cymbylyne 35 M - The Four Winds Off Montauk Point [NYC]

Where are the other remote workers, freelancers, and self-employed in the metro NY/NJ/easily commutable CT areas?
Pre-pandemic, there were WFH people seemingly everywhere on here and other online platforms looking to meet and co-work at home, the library, or Starbucks.
I used to have a reliable network for weekend daytime co-working and coffee buddies. These pandemic years feel and look like an abandoned saloon from Westworld.
Give a holler if you're out there and waiting to dip your big toe or left leg back into co-working.
HMU via Reddit email or Reddit Chat if you have after-work and/or weekend availability to travel in Manhattan or host within thirty minutes of Midtown Manhattan.

2023.05.31 18:29 saleemlala Elbow fracture from childhood hindering my workouts and screwing my form

I had an elbow fracture and dislocation when I was 9 years old. Fast forward today, at the age of 27, that dislocation has made my elbow shape weird which is effecting my workouts. I'm unable to do proper pushups as I cannot straighten it properly. When I'm pushing weights, like a bench press, my right arm looses balance very quickly. Basically the right arm is getting super weak and my right body is lagging. Compound moves are getting messed up as my right elbow gives up too quickly and cannot balance itself.
Is there anything I can do to improve my elbow shape, maybe a workout? Will a compression band or an elbow sleeve help? It's really effecting my progress.
Also, I must mention that I've been working out on and off for over 11 years. I took a break since COVID and got back now. I never really had this issue before, I could push heavy, do pushups and dips easily. This time, my elbow seems to be messing with me.
Also does any one know what this is called medically?

2023.05.31 18:23 kays731 When to donate blood?

I’m a blood donor and for my body I’ve found that 6 months is the shortest time that I can go in order to replenish my iron and all. I got pregnant in May so I haven’t donated since last March. I have a common blood type that is almost a universal donor (O-) so I feel guilty for not donating for so long. From what I understand, breast milk is made from blood so I was wondering if my supply will dip if I donate blood? If so I can definitely wait. I don’t have access to a breastfeeding expert or really anyone who is even knowledgeable. I think I am an over supplier because baby has gone from 42nd percentile to 93rd in 4 months.

2023.05.31 18:19 clingbat B9 S4/S5/SQ5 Stage 1 ECU / Stage 2 TCU Tunes (93 Octane) - IE vs 034

Hi all,
I have not been able to find useful feedback (here/YouTube/forums) from anyone who has directly compared both of these tunes in Stage 1 ECU + Stage 2 TCU flavor, particularly the latest new version of the 034 Stage 1 ECU with crackle tune. Several said they had plans to but then never followed through. Can anyone share their experience with the latest versions of the IE and/or 034 tunes on the B9 platform? From what I've been able to gather when running Stage 1 ECU + Stage 2 TCU:
They both seem quite good for someone focused on daily driving and I was leaning towards 034 until I saw some comments that their recent V2 update to the Stage 1 ECU tune that introduced crackles was a bit annoying / overly aggressive. Prices are similar and I just can't seem to decide, so appreciate any positive or negative recent feedback.

Hello! Flying in from Canada for my Fifth Roo this year and opted to do Mars Colony (souvenir tents) for the first time to make travel a bit easier. We received our car tag but when we scan the QR code it doesn't work and just gives an error code. Wondering if anyone knows how we will figure out where to go/how to figure out which tent is ours?
