This subreddit is designed as an alternative to /transpassing. One of the main criticisms with the subreddit is that there is too much fluffing of comments where people are not receiving a true and honest opinion of their progress. This subreddit disallows any fluffy positive comments and specifically only allows objective, simple and honest feedback on how the poster can improve.

2023.06.08 07:00 Smolesworthy World War 2 (Because I Already Posted Part 1)

The Smells. Collected in The War, by Ana María Shua
Among the least practical ideas of the US military intelligence during World War II were bombs that didn’t kill, but exploded letting out a violently bad odor. Flatulence and halitosis were chosen for trials, as though the smell of rotting flesh had already confused the senses of the soldiers. The bombs would’ve had more success with the smell of fried onion and warm bread, both capable of provoking epidemics of nostalgia. But they could never be used since they would’ve been dangerous even for US’s own soldiers.
From the novel The Glade Within the Grove, by David Foster
Max, we are holding knives at each other's throats. Now were you to perceive the slightest weakening in my apparent resolve to attack you, sooner or later, with all my might, you might be tempted to drive your your knife home, and so we would both die, for I, though mortally wounded by you, would still have the bottle to take you with me, and every other bastard in the room as well. It is for your benefit, Max, and theirs, I cannot reduce the pressure of the knife I hold against your throat. My knife is your guarantee of safety, or so it would seem to me.

2023.06.08 07:00 Background_Ad1031 Doubling Friendly

Not replacing anyone. Doubling Friendly!
Hi. Raoul here. I'm 23 male. Whether you’re looking for something simple to pass the time at home or you would like a long-term project to build a world and explore it, I’m looking for others who enjoy the same!
All the characters are 18+ in the story.
What you can expect from me: ❖ male, and female characters ❖ Sub, Dom and Switch characters ❖ supporting quality over quantity ❖ respecting my partner’s set boundaries ❖ F/F, M/F, M/M pairings.
What I expect from partners: ❖ medium to novella length responses ❖ enjoying story alongside 18+ ❖ writing in third person only ❖ are the consenting age of 18+.
I love doubling - basically a method where we each get a story that we are craving. It's "you scratch my back, I'll scratch yours". We'd have two pairings - one focused on what you want, one focused on my desires. It's a win-win. Please be okay with darker themes, the darker the better. And please be able to play more than one character - Side characters make the story interesting.
I'm looking for a Kidnapped/hostage plot at the moment where I play the hostage/kidnapped role. If you are willing to do this for me, I am serious when I say I will do anything you want in a second story. I'll play any gender, any role, etc. If you want me to do something based on a fandom I don't know, I'll do research. It's truly whatever you desire, as long as it abides by the rules here, of course.

2023.06.08 06:57 JonMoriarty0 Enhancing Spectator Safety: The Importance of Sports Netting

Sports events offer exhilarating moments, intense rivalries, and an electric atmosphere that attracts fans from all walks of life. However, ensuring the safety of spectators has always been a top priority for event organizers and venue managers. To address this concern, sports netting has emerged as a crucial element in protecting spectators and enhancing their overall experience. In this article, we will delve into the significance of spectator safety netting in sports, exploring its benefits and the advancements it has brought to the industry.
1. Protecting Spectators and Increasing Safety:
The primary objective of sports netting is to safeguard spectators from potential hazards during live events. By strategically placing netting systems around arenas and stadiums, organizers create a barrier that prevents objects, such as balls or debris, from reaching the crowd. This protective measure significantly reduces the risk of injuries and enhances the overall safety of the venue.
2. Unobstructed Views and Enhanced Fan Experience:
Contrary to popular belief, sports netting does not compromise the spectator's view. Modern netting materials are designed to be virtually invisible, allowing fans to enjoy the action on the field without any hindrance. With clear sightlines and unobstructed views, spectators can fully immerse themselves in the game, amplifying their overall experience.
3. Versatility and Customization:
Sports netting solutions are highly versatile and can be customized to fit the unique requirements of each venue. Whether it's baseball, soccer, hockey, or golf, tailored netting systems can be installed to match the dimensions and specifications of the sporting facility. This adaptability ensures maximum protection while maintaining the integrity of the game and the aesthetics of the venue.
4. Innovation and Technological Advancements:
In recent years, sports netting has witnessed significant technological advancements. Netting materials have become stronger, more durable, and resistant to weather conditions. Cutting-edge designs and engineering techniques allow for the installation of netting systems that offer optimal protection without compromising the spectator experience.
Moreover, the integration of technology into netting systems has introduced additional safety features. For instance, sensor-based systems can detect and notify officials of any potential breach in real-time, enabling prompt action to mitigate risks. These innovations have revolutionized spectator safety, elevating it to new levels of efficiency and effectiveness.
5. Compliance with Industry Regulations:
Recognizing the importance of spectator safety, regulatory bodies and sports associations have implemented guidelines and regulations regarding the installation of sports netting. These standards ensure that venues prioritize the well-being of spectators and adhere to specific safety protocols. Compliance with these regulations not only guarantees the safety of the crowd but also helps organizations maintain their reputation and meet legal requirements.
Conclusion:
Spectator safety netting has become an integral part of modern sports venues, playing a vital role in safeguarding spectators and enhancing their overall experience. By providing protection against potential hazards without obstructing views, netting systems create a secure environment that allows fans to enjoy the excitement of live events. With continuous technological advancements and customized solutions, sports netting remains at the forefront of spectator safety, ensuring that the thrill of sports is experienced in a safe and secure manner.

2023.06.08 06:57 spencer5centreddit Question about WAFs (related to previous post by u/Fun-Career9787

When I see a top super WAF like Akamai, AWS etc. I basically give up trying any vulns that require user input. Like XSS/Sqli. (Sometimes ssrf will work with the right encoding).
So as I said, as soon as I see a WAF like that I give up and move on, I know twitter often has bypasses but they get fixed immediately so Ive never had luck with those.
What do you do? Do you try to bypass them in other ways?
Thanks!

2023.06.08 06:56 LycheeOrdinary7541 My boyfriend is extremely childish and selfish because I’m going on a trip to nyc

I’m using a different account for reasons. For context: my bf and I are seniors in high-school.
I am going on a trip to nyc later this month. My boyfriend is upset. Like he’s straight up pissed about the fact that I’m going to nyc. He says that it’s not fair and that his life is shitty because all of his friends are traveling to nyc and he’s not. He’s not allowing me to post any pics about my trip on my instagram, or get my nails done, and I wanted to get a new haircut too before I leave but I bet he won’t allow that too.
When I asked him why, he didn’t explain why and just stated that he just doesn’t want to. He threw a fit and threatened to leave (he was hanging out at my house). He claimed that I was abandoning him and that I should just stay in nyc or just straight up break up with him ( I’m gonna stay in nyc for 3 weeks at most).
He gets upset whenever I bring up nyc. I can’t talk about anything exciting to do about nyc. I haven’t left the country in almost 4 years (Im not living in the USA rn) and he went on a Christmas trip to Miami last year. He stayed with his family there for three weeks. While I was sad, I was nowhere near emotional as the temper tantrum he threw when he found out about my trip.
He says that by the time I get back then we won’t have any time together. That the summer should’ve been about us going out and having dates and spending time. To be fair, I have strict parents so I understand. But I still think he’s acting pretty childish.
I just wish he’ll realize his behavior and apologize for how he acts.

2023.06.08 06:55 MickJof Don't believe anything on the internet will become more and more important with the rise of AI

Right now there is so much nonsense posted on the internet, it is hard to distinguish facts from fiction. It is even harder to know who to trust, with so many people freely having access and able to post anything. Over the years, and especially with the advent of social media and internet extending to many devices (internet of things, 'smart' homes), it has become an ever more dangerous medium.
With the rise of AI this will only become worse. Much worse! Soon you will not be able to know if this post was posted by an actual human or by AI. You won't know if the person you are chatting with is real. Heck you won't even know if the person from customer service that you are calling with is real. Coupled with convincing deep fakes this will even extend to video calls!
Thankfully I am already 43 so I sincerily hope that once this new 'fake' world becomes a full reality I will be too senile or demented to bother. But I seriously don't understand all the people simping on AI now and why everybody seems to think this is a good idea!

2023.06.08 06:51 hijesushere Have you guys been indoctrinated into the cult of "Famous p- Holy Plumb you guys, yeah, you mean a-" yet? It's kind... algebra homework. Bread Pudding without either one: it's just an empty conceptual hole. I'd take meds if I were even your call cannot be completed as dialed. At the tone leave a voi

Lyrics in songs I've noticed.
Red Velvet
Oh hey! In the same dream
It kept calling us
Wonderland beyond distant memories
...........
Cntd
We we we strong, nothing missing
Wake up, the answer is Simple
Be Boss, blow the Whistle
The bigger world is noticing you.
Shall we have a festival? I hold your hand.
We've been waiting for this moment. Spread your wings and be yourself.
Come play at My carnival.
Climax? It starts now.
Watch out! We are making the rules.
......
It’s now or never, we got forever.
Sappy
;
You're sobbing and being pessimistic
You're hesitating again, you can't choose
Writing poems in your note, your hobby is sentimental
Look, now it's time to open the door
........
Tell me, which do you love?
It's not bad thing to dream
It's not a fairytale, it's the real world
What are you gonna do? Which one are you
gonna pick?
Reality or fantasy, adolescent boy?
I'm still clearing dating simulation games
using the manual
I'm still a long way from real love
.......
It's not that I don't like it
Escape from being just two-dimensional
Which one do you love?
Tonight let me know your true feelings
You'll really grow up then
Tell me, which one do you love?
(In the video the lyrics are "Logging out from delusion" for a part of it.)
That's not even getting into the imagery in the video.
Feel My Rhythm
Blowing up this fancy ball
We're back, cute chaotic delight
This is gonna be a crazy night
Epic appearance to stunning greetings
Let's have a little fun
Don't be shy, Bae bae
Let the play start
(Birds and wings everywhere in the video. Irene is shown offering strawberries to a gigantic statue of some sort which then falls towards her. Joy is seen standing in front of some type of being with wings, I can't tell what it would be though. Maybe o- I Cant tell, she's, yeah she's blocking the shot)
Imagine anything
Now cruising into a weird, new dimension
A place I've never imagined appears unexpectedly
Don't miss this moment, baby.
Don't confine yourself to yesterday or tomorrow.
I'm truly free right now.
Come ride with me (Sway)
Let's go anywhere (Way)
I want to mess all the boundaries
In this world (Oh yeah)
When the world stops What a what a feeling Come take my hand (All right) A brand new Film We falling deep, You and I Next time, spin the clock Where should we go? Come on, let's start again You and I
Everglow
You used to be afraid of the dark night (ah yeah yeah) Hiding without anyone else knowing (ah yeah yeah) No one say happy ending You stayed silent and ran away (Here we go Here we go like)...
Knock Knock There’s a monster It’s growing larger, the black hole inside of you When you back uh? The howler has swallowed you, that’s the killer Don’t be afraid, hold my hand Your past is making you scared But know your power For the final time, be first You know that I come first I’m the winner winner winner Yes, it’s the last melody To save save save you (so don’t keep) Don’t be deceived by the lie That there is no light in this world Together we will Dream a dream that’s never been seen before Dream a dream that’s never been seen before (Ya) It’s ok if you fall (stand up) It’s you (hands up) Faster Stronger Better Gotta be the best Between night and day, around 5:30AM A war without loyalty will suffocate you, this is a foul Lies, darkness, truth, ecstasy, fantasy My candle makes you explode like a fireworks of melodies in the dawn Don’t be afraid, hold my hand Your past is making you scared But know your power For the final time, be first You know that I come first I’m the winner winner winner Yes, it’s the last melody To save save save you (so don’t keep) Don’t be deceived by the lie That there is no light in this world Together we will Dream a dream that’s never been seen before I’m breaking down the walls, crossing the lines I won’t shrivel up, I’ll jump over one step You got me now got me now two step Don’t slow it down slow it down Shout towards the sky that comes to you Hold onto the key of hope...
Bon bon chocolate
go up to the sky

Avenged Sevenfold
Hate to twist your mind, but God ain't on your side
Flesh is burning, you can smell it in the air 'Cause men like you have such an easy soul to steal (steal) So stand in line while they ink numbers in your head You're now a slave until the end of time here Nothing stops the madness turning Haunting, yearning, pull the trigger You should've known the price of evil And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare While your nightmare comes to life
You've been lied to just to rape you of your sight And now they have the nerve to tell you how to feel (feel) So sedated as they medicate your brain And while you slowly go insane they tell you Given with the best intentions Help you with your complications
You should've known the price of evil And it hurts to know that you belong here, yeah No one to call, everybody to fear Your tragic fate is lookin' so clear, yeah Ooh, it's your fuckin' nightmare Ha, ha, ha, ha
And I know you hear their voices (calling from above) And I know they may seem real (these signals of love) But our life's made up of choices (some without appeal) They took for granted your soul And it's ours now to steal As your nightmare comes to life
Afterlife
Like walking into a dream, so unlike what you've seen So unsure but it seems, 'cause we've been waiting for you Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste Of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway
A place of hope and no pain, perfect skies with no rain Can leave this place but refrain, 'cause we've been waiting for you Fallen into this place, just giving you a small taste Of your afterlife here so stay, you'll be back here soon anyway This piece on Earth's not right (with my back against the wall) No pain or sign of time (I'm much too young to fall) So out of place, don't wanna stay, I feel wrong and that's my sign I've made up my mind Give me your hand but realize I just wanna say goodbye Please, understand I have to leave and carry on my own life
Creating God
Standing in the shade of altruism, answering the call Came a modern messiah to save us all Something far beyond the work of fiction, Positronic brain A world that's void of all the anguish and suffering, pain
We're creating god, master of our designs We're creating god, unsure of what we'll find
Never held a high regard for Darwin, selection takes too long A little kick in the pool shouldn't do us wrong Devouring the very last invention man would ever need But exponential growth is a frightening thing, indeed
Sometimes when I look up to the sky I have to wonder are we "summoning the demon" you and I?
Have you noticed that I'm needin' it more now, more than it needs me Got a couple of billion that seem to agree Surfing in an artificial dimension, but we're not alone Now the master has become just a stepping stone, oh
We're Creating, God.
Beast and the Harlot
This shining city built of gold A far cry from innocence There's more than meets the eye around here Look to the waters of the deep A city of evil There sat a seven headed beast Ten horns raised from his head Symbolic woman sits on his throne But hatred strips her and leaves her naked The beast and the harlot
The city dressed in jewels and gold Fine linen, myrrh and pearls Her plagues will come all at once As her mourners watch her burn Destroyed in an hour Merchants and captains of the world Sailors navigators too Will weep and mourn this loss With her sins piled to the sky The beast and the harlot
The day has come for all our sinners If you're not a servant, you'll be struck to the ground Flee the burning, greedy city Looking back on her to see there's nothing around
The day has come for all our sinners If you're not a servant, you'll be struck to the ground Flee the burning, greedy city Looking back on her to see there's nothing around I don't believe in fairy tales and no one wants to go to hell You've made the wrong decision and it's easy to see Now if you wanna serve above or be a king below with us You're welcome to the city where your future is set forever
Welcome to the family
Hey kid (hey kid) Do I have your attention? I know the way you've been living Life's so reckless, tragedy endless Welcome to the family Hey There's something missing Only time will alter your vision Never in question, lethal injection Welcome to the family Not long ago you find the answers were so crystal clear Within a day you find yourself living in constant fear Can you look at yourself now, can you look at yourself? You can't win this fight
I try and help you with the things that can't be justified I need to warn you that there is no way to rationalize So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out? You can't win this fight
And in a way it seems there's no one to call When our thoughts are so numb And our feelings unsure We all have emptiness inside, we all have answers to find But you can't win this fight!
I see you're a king who's been dethroned Cast out in a world you've never know Stand down, place your weapon by your side It's our war in the end, we'll surely lose but that's alright So have you figured it out now, so have you figured it out?
Bat Country
So sorry you're not here I've been sane too long, my vision's so unclear Now take a trip with me But don't be surprised when things aren't what they seem
You've been breakin' down for far too long Far too many moons since you felt well and strong You see, you could say goodbye but you don't have to die Not ever
Engineer the wires to your brain Architect a code so you won't feel the pain With your family by your side and vigor in your eyes forever Live Forever I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals I shed my human side Father, oh father I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm What's it really mean to be a man? Think about your answer but please understand While it's natural to fear, I'll make it disappear forever I forever I'm way up, a god in size, beyond the reach of mortals I shed my human side Father, oh father I stare at my reflection, have I lost that boy inside? Final paradigm Singular I am I have the question if these thoughts are mine To live forever but did something in me die? I'm clawing my skin but I can't feel it inside I know the agony of pain would hurt so much better I'm way up, so far up Have I lost myself tonight? Mother, oh father Have you lost that boy you used to know?
Simulation
It seems I should have walked away Reverse the wager I've no means to pay Toto has pulled back the green tonight, in sight And blue pills coat with such disdain I wore the shades for so long That I've forgotten how to see The curtain rises but who dares to pull the strings
I know this might be hard for you to believe and all, But you only exist because we allow it I question all the voices in my head Are they mine or have I been misled? Total understanding doesn't seem to mean a thing When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine Can't you hear me scream? By the way of cosmic rays A subtle breakdown jarred the code display A simulation as I can tell, our cell Playing out a hopeless scene We stand to lose all our charm And faith just seems to wane A billion years can seem a stunningly short time You've been beaten down time and time again But still you find yourself at the center of it all I question all the voices in my head Are they mine or have I been misled? Total understanding doesn't seem to mean a thing When you can't see behind the silver screen, a figurine Can't you hear me scream? You hear me, you had one thing to do, one thing And you fucked it up, piece of shit Nurse, patient 666158 needs to be sedated We need 500 CCs of M Oh hello there, dearie I've been expecting you Posturing the way I feel Is truth only what we believe is real? Marvel the sketches that paint the night, starlight And take a breath before it's all erased away

2023.06.08 06:51 MysticalElephant Kinda weird but does anyone else think that….

Masturbation is gross? And genitals in general are gross? Like do genitals legit turn people on? Because they look disgusting to me.
Like I find guys “good looking” but their privates look disgusting to me. I don’t think sex itself is disgusting… I don’t think. I don’t know how to describe it.
I have never masturbated and I don’t feel the need to, but is it weird to feel that way about privates and exploring yourself versus not really being sex adverse?
Also, is it weird that I enjoy smut (basically “porn” fanfiction) but I don’t enjoy porn itself? Or that I imagine myself as a “character” having sex but not myself (because I am ugly asf)? I feel like I’m crazy the way I think about this. I feel like im asexual but im somewhere on the spectrum of it that I don’t quite understand it fully yet. Also, I’ve never been sexually attracted to anyone. What does being “turned on” feel like? Like I just can’t fathom the feeling of wanting to pleasure yourself of have sex with someone. Are people really that attracted to others that they want to just rip their clothes off and bang them? I lowkey wish I knew what that felt like lol.
Sorry for the questions and mini rant. I just felt the need to ask/get this out.

Question 6 Explain why Binary Coded Decimal (BCD) is sometimes referred to as the “8421” code. Why is this code used at all? Answer BCD uses groups of four binary bits to represent each digit of a decimal number. The LSD place weights are 8-4-2-1, while the next significant digit’s place weightings are 80-40-20-10, and so on. Convert the following decimal numbers into BCD form: 73910 2510 9224110 Convert the following BCD numbers into decimal form: 1000 1001 0100 0111 0110 0011 1000 0101 0001 Answer 73910 = 0111 0011 1001 2510 = 0010 0101
9224110 = 1001 0010 0010 0100 0001 1000 1001 = 8910 0100 0111 0110 = 47610 0011 1000 0101 0001 = 385110 Question 7 Standard ASCII codes are seven bits in length, but communications equipment usually sends data in eight-bit (byte) groups. The extra bit is often used as a parity bit. What is the purpose of a “parity bit,” and how is it used? Answer “Parity bits” are used as a primitive form of error detection. Communications equipment making use of parity for error detection may either be configured for “even parity” or for “odd parity”. I’ll let you research and explain how parity bits are used in the transmission of ASCII data.
Question 10 An important parameter of logic gate circuitry is noise margin. What exactly is “noise margin,” and how is it defined for logic gates? Specifically, how much noise margin do digital circuits exclusively composed of CMOS gates have? How does this compare with the noise margin of all-TTL circuitry? Answer: Noise margin is the difference between the acceptable voltage limits for corresponding input and output logic states. Notes: This question, to be answered properly, involves more than just a definition of “noise margin.” Students must first discover that there is a difference between voltage compliance levels for gate inputs versus outputs, then recognize that the difference constitutes a “margin” that imposed AC voltage (“noise”) must not exceed. They must then present their answer in terms of manufacturer specifications, obtained in datasheets. In summary, there is a lot of research that must occur to answer this question, but the results will be worth it! Question 11 In Claude Shannon’s famous 1948 paper entitled A Mathematical Theory of Communication, he opens with the following statement: “The recent development of various methods of modulation such as PCM and PPM which exchange bandwidth for signal-to-noise ratio has intensified the interest in a general theory of communication.”
Explain what Shannon was referring to when he said, “exchange bandwidth for signal-to-noise ratio”. In many cases, the superior signal-to-noise ratio of digital communication over analog communication is the primary reason justifying the much greater complexity of digital communications equipment. Also, elaborate on how bandwidth becomes sacrificed in order to achieve relatively noiseless signal transmission. Answer: Digital signals are highly resistant to corruption from noise, because they are composed of discrete (“high” and “low”) states rather than continuously-variable quantities as analog signals are. However, in order to communicate any significant measure of digital information in serial form, many pulses are needed. This requires a high-bandwidth data path to be comparable in speed to analog. Notes: Shannon’s language is perhaps a bit above the norm for technician-level education, but it nevertheless captures an important quality of digital communication: that the noise immunity enjoyed by digital communication comes at a price: high bandwidth. Without a high-bandwidth medium in which to exchange digital information, communication is either slow or completely impractical Question 12 Suppose an analog-digital converter IC (“chip”) inputs a voltage ranging from 0 to 5 volts DC and converts the magnitude of that voltage into an 8-bit binary number. How many discrete “steps” are there in the output as the converter circuit resolves the input voltage from one end of its range (0 volts) to the other (5 volts)? How much voltage does each of these steps represent? Answer This ADC (Analog-to-Digital Converter) circuit has 256 steps in its output range, each step representing 19.61 mV. Question 13 What is meant by the word resolution in reference to an ADC or a DAC? Why is resolution important to us, and how may it be calculated for any particular circuit knowing the number of binary bits? Answer: The resolution of either a digital-to-analog converter (DAC) or an analog-to-digital converter (ADC) is the measure of how finely its output may change between discrete, binary steps. For instance, an 8- bit DAC with an output voltage range of 0 to 10 volts will have a resolution of 39.22 mV. Notes: Note that I did not hint how to calculate the resolution of a DAC or an ADC, I just gave the answer for a particular example. The goal here is for students to inductively “work backwards” from my example to a general mathematical statement about resolution.
There are actually two different ways to calculate the resolution, depending on the actual range of the converter circuit. For the answer given, I assumed that a digital value of 0x00 = 0.00 volts DC and that a digital value of 0xFF = 10.00 volts DC. If a student were to calculate the resolution for a circuit where 0xFF generated an output voltage just shy of 10.00 volts DC (e.g. an R-2R ladder network where Vref = 10 volts DC, and a full-scale binary input generates an output voltage just one step less than Vref), the correct answer for resolution would be 39.06 mV. You may want to bring up such practical examples of resolution as the difference between a handheld digital multimeter and a lab-bench digital multimeter. The number of digits on the display is a sure clue to a substantial difference in ADC resolution. Question 14 Answer: An important feature of microprocessors is the use of flag registers. What, exactly, is a “flag”, and what are they used for in microprocessor programming? Identify some common machine- language commands that set flags, and some common commands that read flags. Flags are single-bit registers in a microprocessor set according to the results of an operation. Arithmetic and logical operations are common examples of commands that set flags. Conditional operations such as “Jump if Zero” are based on flag status: that is, the status of certain flags dictate what a conditional operation will do.
Question 16 What does the normal status of an electrical switch refer to? Specifically, what is the difference between a normally-open switch and a normally-closed switch? Answer The “normal” status of a switch refers to the open or closed status of the contacts when there is no actuating force applied to the switch. Notes: An important qualification for an electrical switch to be either “normally-open” or “normally-closed” is that it have a spring to return it to its “normal” state in the absence of an actuating force. Latching switches such as most toggle switches really cannot be defined in terms of “normally-” anything. Discuss this with your students, possibly showing them some examples of momentary contact switches that are either N.O. or N.C. Question 17 A special class of electromechanical relays called time-delay relays provide delayed action, either upon power-up or power-down, and are commonly denoted in ladder logic diagrams by “TD” or “TR” designations near the coil symbols and arrows on the contact symbols. Here is an example of a time- delay relay contact used in a motor control circuit: In this circuit, the motor delays start-up until three seconds after the switch is thrown to the “Run” position, but will stop immediately when the switch is returned to the “Stop” position. The relay contact is referred to as normally-open, timed-closed, or NOTC. It is alternatively referred to as a normally-open, on-delay contact. Explain how the arrow symbol indicates the nature of this contact’s delay, that delay occurs during closure but not during opening. Answer Note that the “Arrow” is pointing in the up direction, toward the direction of contact closure. Notes:
The arrow symbol is not difficult to figure out, but it is essential to know when working with time- delay relay circuits.
Question 21 Suppose an automobile manufacturer was designing a new car engine design, and they needed a memory chip to store look-up tables for the engine’s control computer, holding data such as optimum fuel/air ratios for different engine loads which the computer would then consult to maintain best performance, or economy, or emissions. What type of memory chip would you recommend for the task, and why? Choose from the following list: Static RAM (SRAM) Mask ROM PROM Dynamic RAM (DRAM) EPROM Magnetic core Answer: EPROM would probably be the best choice. I’ll let you discuss this with your classmates and with your instructor, though! Notes: This question is multi-faceted. Students must consider volatility and ease of updating (the data), as well as simply applying the concept of a look-up table to a car’s engine control computer, in order to intelligently answer this question. Question 22 Explain the difference between static RAM (“SRAM”) and dynamic RAM (“DRAM”) memory technologies. Which type of memory technology provides faster access of data, and why? Which type of memory technology provides the greatest storage density, and why?
Answer: Static RAM provides the fastest access, while dynamic RAM provides the greatest amount of memory per physical volume (storage density). Follow-up question: how is refreshing provided for dynamic RAM chips? Is this something taken care of internal to the chip, or must the circuit designer provide external circuitry to refresh the dynamic RAM chip’s memory cells? Question 23 Two very important concepts to understand when working with digital memory devices are address and data. Define each of these terms in your own words. Define the following acronyms: ROM: PROM: EPROM: EEPROM: UVEPROM: Be prepared to explain a few things about each of these memory technologies: how they work, what applications they might be found in, advantages and disadvantages of each. Answer: ROM: Read-Only Memory PROM: Programmable Read-Only Memory EPROM: Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory EEPROM: Electrically Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory UVEPROM: UltraViolet Erasable Programmable Read-Only Memory Question 24 An important use for read-only semiconductor memories is as look-up tables. Describe what a “look- up table” is, and what one might be used for. Answer: A look-up table is a set of data programmed into a memory device, used to map a function of some kind: for each unique input (address), there is an output (data) that means something to the system in which it is installed. An example of a look-up table is an EBCDIC-to-ASCII code converter, where an EBCDIC code input to the address lines of a ROM chip “looks up” the equivalent ASCII character value from memory, and outputs it as the result through the ROM chip’s data lines.
Notes: The EBCDIC-to-ASCII code converter concept is not hypothetical! I actually designed and helped build such a circuit to allow standard personal computers to “talk” to an obsolete CNC machine tool control computer which didn’t understand ASCII data, only EBCDIC. A look-up table implemented in a UVEPROM served as a neat way to implement this function, without a lot of complex circuitry. Question 25 Digital computers use a numeration system with a base of two, rather than a base of ten as we are accustomed to using. It is much easier to engineer circuitry that counts in “binary” than it is to design circuits that count in any other base system. Based on what you know of numeration systems, answer the following questions: How many different symbols (ciphers) are there in the binary numeration system? What are the different place-weight values in the binary system? How would you represent the number “seventeen” in binary? In our base-ten (denary) numeration system, each character is called a “digit.” What is each character called in the binary numeration system? Answer: There are only two valid ciphers in the binary system: 0 and 1. Each successive place carries twice the “weight” of the one before it. Seventeen = 10001 (in binary). Each character in the binary system is called a “bit” rather than a “digit”. Question 26 A numeration system often used as a “shorthand” way of writing large binary numbers is the hexadecimal, or base-sixteen, system. Based on what you know of place-weighted numeration systems, describe how many valid ciphers exist in the hexadecimal system, and the respective “weights” of each place in a hexadecimal number. Also, perform the following conversions: 3516 into decimal: 3410 into hexadecimal: 111000102 into hexadecimal: 9316 into binary:
Answer: There are sixteen valid ciphers in the hexadecimal system (0, 1, 2, 3, 4, 5, 6, 7, 8, 9, A, B, C, D, E, and F), with each successive place carrying sixteen times the “weight” of the place before it. 3516 into decimal: 5310 3410 into hexadecimal: 2216 111000102 into hexadecimal: E216 9316 into binary: 100100112

2023.06.08 06:49 ARC-77_Capt_Fordo Ammo Inc. 122gr Squib Load?

Recently went to the range with my Zastava M70 and a 250 round box of Ammo Inc. 122gr. I know it's repackaged Global Ordnance but after shooting 233/250 it's become apparent that there's a difference in QC when buying the now discontiuned Ammo Inc. 7.62x39. I've had several of what I can only describe as "Ivan's Piss'n HOT Loads" and followed by rounds that feel like half-load blanks. In my experience the majority of these steel cased rounds are lighter recoiling when compared to Barnaul or Tula, and have inconsistent QC.
What has captured most of my attention is one round in particular. After loading a magazine, racking and firing a round successfully the next round would preform as what I hope was bare minimum. I squeezed the trigger and was met with a bang, flash, and the lightest of light recoils. My M70 managed to kick out the casing and sluggishly chamber the next round. I fired the following round and about 40 more before leaving.
All of my shots appear to be on target and uniform. I have no idea if this was the best squib and subsequently worst round or what? My M70 doesn't appear to have any barrel deformation, the bore looks shinny and I'm not sure if it's worth going to a gunsmith to make sure "...rifle is fine".
Let me know what you think, and if you've had similar experiences with Ammo Inc.

2023.06.08 06:47 throw-away-7565 I think my uncle a pedo

Tldr I think my uncle is a pedophile and I don't know what to do
I'm fairly new to this whole posting for help but have recently found myself in a horrible delema and can't possibly do anything about it for some info I'm 15 and my family (,mom,dad, brother18,other brother14 , sister10) Live with my aunt and her 2 sons we all get along REALLY well as we grew up always having sleep overs around every week and always went on vacation with each other now my uncle whos always been in our lives as he has shared custody with my aunt this they work around it differently see my uncle is an illegal imagrnt and so when he and my aunt broke up they didn't actually divorce and he stayed in our lives solely because he's a great dad who pays for around 80% of my aunt's funds for her kids and she herself can't work due to being on the spectrum so she receives money monthly for her and her eldest son as he's also on the spectrum and is slowly going blind in one eye due to problems involving birth
Now my cousins go to stay with him every other week and he pays for everything but eversince there breakup he's found another women who already has kids and he still manages to take care of both families partially due to the monthly income from the states checks now the delema starts with the fact that we're living with them as of 2 years and he pays for half of the mortgage water electric and likewise bills while my parents pay for the other half ,it's a 4 bedroom house with 2 living rooms one when u enter the house and that's the room we made as my room my other siblings stay in the other shared room with a bunk bed and a normal bed they have there setups and everything we own a cat and a dog I own 2 ferrets that stay in my room (well taken care of)and my 2 cousins have there own rooms while my aunt has her own room that leaves my parents they sleep on couches in the 2nd living room which is connected to the kitchen and it's been like this for 2 years
Some info about my room or" living room" is that I have a mini fridge my bed and a ferret cage along with my desktop and laptop my "door" is actually a curtain that connects to the hallway I do online school and my room is set up in a way where it's the first room you walk into when you open the door to the house so those leaves for awkward experiences when it comes to the fact that I sleep her so lots of times especially during summer with my messed up sleep schedule I sleep during the day to afternoon and during this time my uncle sometimes drops by cus he lives nearby and he likes to check in at times so lots of times he comes by when I'm asleep RIGHT IN FRONT of anyone who comes to our house
Anyways now we are stuck living with our aunt as my mom has 15k saved in a secret account(for down payment) only I know about due to her and me being close and me being the only mature child when it comes to certain things well she's saving for a house and got that money from tax refund 2yrs And is currently trying her best to get a good paying job for a family of 8+(cousins added) Along with this she has a rly bad credit due to bad financial choices yes I'k it happens to everyone and she's working really hard to fix her mistakes but is finding much difficultys fixing her wrongs as for my dad the money he's making 800 a check (weekly) is being used on food+repairs+bills/phone/mortgage/insurance/ect. So we rly aren't making enough to leave and get a better house or start renting
All of this is important cus it's relivant to the way I'm thinking about the situation at hand let's get to that . Alright so here's where it starts lately around this month I've been picking up on red flags about my uncle and deciy to ignore them as "he's my uncul all he's ever done is good for our family he's been here for to long to notice something now" is what I would tell myself and what would these increasingly red flags be well, it started when he casually brought up to my mom that he wished I was his daughter as I'm so great and he sees me as his daughter and how I'm"so much more smarter than my cousins" and how "I'm glad her potential didn't go to waste with you caring for her " keep in mind this is all being said in Spanish well that was all good I thought that it was more a a bragging right and was happy he thought highly of me RIGHT?? Well after that day 1 week passed I was feeling very anxious and decided to go on a walk with my much loved mom all good but when we got back 8:??pm he was at the house and we greeted him well her but he seemed to notice I was down and decided to "spoil me " so he sent my mom 100$ and we went to Walmart and bought me sum books (mangas) and got sum snacks spent the rest on my ferrets and we bought sum cleaning supplies allls good right??
No cus 3-4 days later he comes to pick my cousins up 1 by one for them each to get 1 week with him to work and make money I thought it was nice so made a joke out of it and he said "oh well if you want I can take you with me but just for 2. Days and you'll have to be alone cus it's 1 by 1 " so I was weirded out and let it slip a bit cus u know "uncle would never" and so let it be but the next week he came by I jokingly said "I'm gonna need a pass to let you in any I'd?" And he replied by "KISSING ME ON THE HEAD" might not seem like a lot but dude doesn't even do that to his own kids and the last interaction u had with him didn't end well so ever since then I would avoid hime as I felt weird and dunno a bit scared to see what would happen next and BOY was u right now and behold 1 week later he pops by I see him park it's 7ph suns down and I decided to act like I slept early to avoid the guy I didn't want to see or talk with him after everything
something was just not feeling right so i did what I did and faked being asleep in hoped I would actually fall asleep and avoid him welp,....... He found his time and between the 2 minutes no one was near (everyone in their room ) mom and dad were at my step grandma's house ) he went and closed my door(curtains) I could tell do to it being like a shower curtain the roll in part but actual thicc curtains so no one can see pass ( my choice due to not liking the light pass through from the hallway )he layed down right next to me I was sleeping on my left side facing the wall he went and sorta spooned me but in a way where you are trying to be carful as to not wake them up and afterwards he sniffed my hair ?? And neck then sorta put his hand on my ass and very lightly squeezed it I had to lay there for 2-5 mins and wait till he left I felt so bad and confused not sad just confused
I don't know what to do so I told my younger brother 1yr gap and he's the most trust worthy and helpful ,after I told him we talked about how if I'm sleeping and he's not that he'd make sure to stay in my room with me Incase and if I'm awake and he's sleeping I'll go to his room and wait it out great .now problem still stands after his groping and actions I fake woke up and said hi he looked shocked but I played it off he fell for it and even want in for the "so when will you come and work for me " remember those 2 days of just me working for him that he promised =\ the balls this dam man has but I rly can't do anything I I talk or tell my mom then the whole family is fucked house is gone cousins don't get a dad we prob will stop talking with my cousin finding a house to rent will fuck it up even more then there goes for our hard worked credit and bam forever changed family I rly don't wanna ruin everything and feel like the soul reasoned everything was messed up along with not wanting to mess my mom's chance at finally getting a house when u told my brother about this and eveieas when I finally started crying I'm glade to have him and as I'm writing this I'm a bit emotional and feel so bad about myself
As of writing this it happens about 4hrs ago and now I'm just stuck in between what's my go to in one way there's snitching him out on the other I can keep it to myself and deal with it with the help of my brother but I'm still vunribal to him when both my brother and I are asleep and I think his lust or whatever is getting stronger ras the times he's been acting out on me have increased and the time in-between have decreased I'm afraid for my family and for me I just hope he doesn't touch me any more .I posted this here as I don't know much about where to post the right things hope this finds it's way to someone that. Can help he find a way through this without hiring my familys relationship

2023.06.08 06:46 jstan247 Language Conflicts in China

Since Hong Kong was handed back over to China in 1997 after 156 years as a British colony, the cultural differences, powerful government of the Chinese Communist party, and various other political and economic factors have caused many complications between regions in the last 26 years. Another key impact and aspect to these conflicts is the role of language and its effect on cultural identity and social opportunities. The linguistic impact of these conflicts have become very prevalent in education policies, employment opportunities, and representing and preserving identity in Hong Kong. Through delving deeper into these factors, we can further understand the unique circumstances of the conflicts and tension between Hong Kong and China and understand the ongoing struggle of those who feel they are losing their autonomy.
Language policies play a large role in shaping the culture and way of life of any region, specifically in Hong Kong, it has become an evident problem over recent years in residents fighting to protect their culture and mother tongue language, Cantonese. Since the handover in 1997, the mainland China government has increasingly influenced and promoted Mandarin; the official language in the mainland, onto Hong Kong in an attempt to integrate both regions and share the same language, essentially leading to the departure of Cantonese. Policies that have been made regardless of if they are in favor of preserving Cantonese or not, bring many challenges due to the complicated political, economic, and educational conditions.
Hong Kong has had various policies instituted in order to maintain Cantonese such as the Medium of Instruction (MoI) policy and having education centered around a biliterate and trilingual education system. The MoI policy ultimately allows schools in Hong Kong to choose from either Cantonese or English to teach in, however it is primarily Cantonese that is chosen and highly recommended by the Hong Kong government. Although this policy allows the mother tongue language in Hong Kong to thrive in the education system, many students may be set back or face struggles with a deficiency of English, a crucial international language in the new globalized economy (Kan & Adamson, 2010). The biliterate and trilingual system in Hong Kong which encompasses written proficiency in Cantonese and English, and spoken proficiency in Cantonese, Mandarin, and English also faces similar criticisms as some may argue the emphasis on English literacy proficiency comes at the expense of Chinese culture and heritage. Along with the increased promotion of Mandarin use in recent years by the Chinese government, this system continues to face challenges while trying to navigate Hong Kong’s unique linguistic and cultural context.
Continued policy changing and further intervention from the Chinese government has also contributed to the linguistic challenges and escalating tensions between Hong Kong and China. The introduction of the National Security Law in 2020 and promotion of the Mandarin language through the National Common Language Law in China have escalated the concern for the prosperity and preservation of Cantonese. The National Security Law caused a wave of the largest series of demonstrations in the history of Hong Kong because of a fear of lack of rights and freedom, along with loss of linguistic heritage due to promotion of Chinese national identity. As Lee & Chan (2022) states, although Hong Kong has never been a full democracy, it has always been a desired goal for the region, however due to the outcome of the implementation of the National Security Law, democratic backsliding has heavily accelerated and autonomy in the region has therefore been lessening. This lack of freedom for citizens in Hong Kong has brought about more emphasis for protecting Cantonese with the national language laws of China becoming more evident in the rise of Mandarin in Hong Kong.
Cultural erosion in Hong Kong is made apparent by the growing rise of Mandarin in the region from efforts by the Chinese government and ultimately causing a large decline of Cantonese significance within employment. Li (2022) finding increasingly positive effects of Mandarin proficiency for finding a job, along with receiving higher earnings in Hong Kong shows the decreasing use and importance of Cantonese, even where approximately 97% of the population are Cantonese speakers. The cultural and political instability within Hong Kong has also caused the tourism sector to take a large hit, leaving many people struggling or without jobs. Additionally, concerns with the autonomy of Hong Kong have negatively affected international trade with other countries, causing further economic and financial difficulties.
The conflicts between Hong Kong and China contain many difficulties and complications that make the situation complicated to navigate, but ultimately have led to a linguistic divide and cultural erosion for Hong Kong residents. The various language policies and other economic factors that help to alleviate tensions between Hong Kong and China along with the promotion and thriving state of Mandarin in Hong Kong, all contribute to Hong Kong’s cultural identity being put at risk and affecting social mobility within the region. To reduce these linguistic challenges and cultural complications, more recognition for the state of Cantonese and Hong Kong’s heritage and traditions is needed through things such as the Protecting Cantonese Movement (PCM) to promote understanding of these cultural and linguistic differences (Li et al., 2022). Overall, the importance of promoting and keeping Cantonese alive is a key factor to protecting Hong Kong’s values and identity when undergoing these political challenges with Hong Kong and China.
