2020.10.24 02:08 PerhapsConfused European Commission Translation Traineeship: can't prove declared work?

I apologize if this isn't the right sub.
I passed the pre-selection phase of a traineeship I have wanted and have worked all my life for.
In the application form, in the work experience section, I failed to mention 1) the correct work period dates 2) two relevant as well as most recent job positions (for some reason I somehow thought online freelance TRANSLATION work and a supermarket job didn't count). I am devastated and disappointed in myself.
To add insult to injury, I can't even provide proof for 2 of the 3 positions I included in the application (and the one I can prove doesn't match the date and duration I provided). For one of them, the boss left me on read on Facebook and didn't respond to my email asking for a reference letter. The other one was 10 years ago as a volunteer at an office because a family member wanted me to experience what having a job was like, I don't know a single person from there nor would I get a reference letter for something there are no records for (not to mention that particular office closed).
Either way, all of this to ask: have you ever had any experience with European Commission programmes, traineeships, internships, etc, in which you failed to provide details/the correct info and still managed to move forward? Do I explain why I can't provide something or why the dates don't match properly? Would me adding the two jobs I can prove and are relevant to the traineeship to the documents mean anything, since you can't edit the form?
Thank you.

2020.10.23 21:41 MintDiceOfficial CryptoSmarts 5: Best Miscellaneous Internet Privacy Tools

MintDice is proud to bring you the fifth part of the CryptoSmarts series, a 100% unbiased/non-affiliate paid article set that will focus on relatively simple ways you can boost your privacy, take power away from overbearing governments and corporations while also doing relative good for society all at the same time with minimal effort. Rest assured that anything suggested here is solely for your own benefit.
In this article, we're going to go over a number of various applications that you may or may not be interested to improve your privacy online. Unlike the previous CryptoSmarts articles that focused on application staples of the web that applied to virtually everyone, these are more elective-type options that better suite the more hardcore privacy overachievers. Let's get started.

CLOUD STORAGE

It's become all too common for everyone to rely on the major cloud storage providers to back-up their phone's data and more so, their computer's or entire business' data. This is most commonly done with services like DropBox, Google Drive and Apple's iCloud. However, this leaves your personal data exposed and at risk due to their poor encryption methods used, lack of open sourced software and lack of respect for your overall privacy in a few regards.

https://preview.redd.it/g7gxyjvrdwu51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=2f8e45bcbf11824be34a8ea2582f81792ea7967d
The optimal solution, if you are technically savvy, is to set up your own private server and to run Nextcloud. The benefit of choosing a platform like this, outside of the obvious features like it being open-sourced and privacy centric, is that it is completely free to use and operate. It's only constrained by the server provider that you end up choosing which will then dictate the number of features used therein.
So this is ultimately a low-cost and high performing tool for anyone in need of cloud storage solutions. It comes at the cost of requiring you to set up and manage your own private hosting and pay for this individual service. Overall, this elective add-on is worth it for anyone interested in really taking things to the next level or depending on their overall data needs and requirements.

NOTEPADS

Initially the note-type devices were constructed as a novelty and device only feature. However, as the internet of things proliferates, many note type devices have expanded to incorporate themselves across a web of devices to keep your note taking up to date. Of course, with the added benefits comes added risks and security measures. Many of you may be familiar with the more common notepads that go under the names of Apple's Stickies, Evernote, Google's Keep and Microsoft's OneNote. As with everything else, these applications may secretly spy on you, may not use encryption best practices or a whole host of other vulnerabilities that almost exclusively keep you worse off relative to safer alternatives.

https://preview.redd.it/528r6fqudwu51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8b284a3809461a0107450e9b0133d9568407502c
There are a few better choices to pick from as far as applications go. Our personal and long standing favorite of the bunch is Standard Notes. Standard Notes is a relatively basic platform, mostly for note taking, that can be synced across a wide variety of platforms from your desktop to your mobile devices of all operating systems. Standard Notes should be sufficient for the majority of use cases as far as most people are concerned.
If you are looking for slightly fancier alternatives, consider Joplin and Turtl. Joplin tries to be a more all inclusive application and also syncs through other privacy softwares such as Nextcloud that we had just mentioned from earlier as the best cloud service platform. Turtl, on the other hand, gives you multiple functionalities that let you store bookmarks, passwords and even documents for sensitive projects which makes it a pretty good all around application for more corporate type entities as well as more broad individual use cases.

FILE ENCRYPTION

There's many reasons why you may be interested in file encryption. This could be as basic as needing to ensure that your hard drive is encrypted so that if in the unfortunate event your device is lost or stolen, any adversary won't also get your life's work on top of the haul. But it may also have to do with securing sensitive projects on USB drives, e-mails, keeping projects contained on your open desktop or any other number of reasons. I would suggest that at a minimum that everyone keep their hard drive encrypted, and beyond that, the elective choices are up to them depending on what type of data they keep and how sensitive it is to them or the wider public.
The most popular project is known as VeraCrypt. This has been a long standing project as a forked project from the initial TrueCrypt that was abandoned in 2013. Veracrypt is good for general encryption use cases and it's continued development has allowed for a lot of features and long standing issues/bugs to have been resolved since it's fork. As an all around project, this is one of the top choices for normal use cases.

https://preview.redd.it/kv8u1uvxdwu51.jpg?width=1000&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=c64d495f00c3ff447607f8106f9660a104c54bb1
When it comes to securing your e-mails, look no further than Gnu's Privacy Guard. Also known has GnuPG, it is compliant with RFC 4880 and is run off of the free software foundation. It's specs are also matched with OpenPGP. Currently, this project is so well received that it is currently funded in part by the German government.
Finally, for larger scale file archiving, we would like to recommend you over to 7-Zip. This will encrypt large files and put them into compressed containers so that they can remain safe but then also not clog up too much of your overall disk space. This makes it convenient for the large scale stuff we mentioned earlier. 7-Zip is functional with all major operating systems and devices.

OFFICE TOOLS & DOCUMENT SHARING

Our last security suggestions will revolve around general office type tools. Online, these can be platforms such as Google Docs and offline they can take the more commonly known Microsoft Word among other platforms. As we've stated in the past, information published on these platforms can and will be used against you. It's been publicly stated that Google does read all of it's content for metadata to produce advertising and demographic assumptions about it's authors. By switching over to more robust, open-sourced and secure platforms, you'll be doing everyone a favor, except for the monopolistic corporate giants.
For online tools, we will start with CryptPad. This website is truly your bread and butter for a Google docs replacement alternative. They have most or all of the tools that you would need from documents to spreadsheets with the notable feature that all data is End-To-End Encrypted (E2EE). To make matters even better, no registration is needed, so you can do anything on the fly or anonymously, as you so please. You can also create an account to save your data that way if you prefer.

https://preview.redd.it/25w48wtzdwu51.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6e1fed4f1d8552acd7c299b2c924990fbd081ee7
For the more technical people that prefer a higher degree of autonomy and control over their online documentation, I would recommend that you take a look at Etherpad. This website contains open sourced online editing software that you can bootstrap onto any project that you are currently working on. This would enable you then, in theory, to host everything yourself in addition to running already secure software in the first place giving you full control of everything.
Finally, for the more public facing side of the equation, there's blogging, which still counts as a form of document sharing. Perhaps the best platform at the moment is WriteAs. They offer a beautiful suite of tools depending on your blogging needs and also offer both free and paid versions of their online app. Furthermore, since it is open sourced software, they do allow anonymous post creation. You can get on the website and start typing up an article nearly instantly. You will need to further expand your account or pay for services to maintain the blog though or else anonymous articles may not be held indefinitely because that could tie up unnecessary services on their end.
And before we leave this section, quite simply put, if you are interested in offline tools, look no further than OpenOffice for your free offline office tool needs.

FINAL NOTE

Broadly speaking, the use of both local and online applications is a frequent occurrence for virtually everyone these days as our lives are completely intertwined with the world wide web. To maintain a proper sense of dignity online, you should always ask yourself if applications that you use frequently could be improved with some sort of alternative. For the more commonly used items which can deal with messaging or writing in general, there often are examples of this. One website that lists many alternatives of a wide array of applications is AlternativeTo, and it is worth checking out if you have questions about things you are using and if better alternatives exist.
The issue at hand is complex in nature as always, but it will come down to a large equation of how much do you value privacy, how much effort do you care to protect yourself and how frequently do you use certain types of applications. The dependency on each variable should really dictate how much energy you put into your privacy bubble.

2020.10.23 21:13 SSK_91 BR NONCUM Taxcode in error

Asking on behalf of my girlfriend who is paying too much tax due to her being on the above taxcode (BR NONCUM).
We have been checking her online HMRC account. She changed jobs at the end of May.
On the HMRC website under "Employments that have ended since 5 April" the amount listed underneath her previous employer is £30,090 (I guess this is the expected earnings if she was to work a full tax year) and End Date: 31 May 2020. However when clicking on the "View employment details" Taxable income was £5093.04 and Income Tax paid is £593.60.
Shouldn't the number above the previous employment be the number which she was actually paid as it clearly states the employment has ended and they have reported the earnings to HMRC?
The number above her current employer is £25,075.
The annual tax free amount is shown as £5,407.
The calculations is as follows: Personal Allowance: £12,500 Total additions: £233
Adjustment to rate band: £4,932 Estimated tax you owe this year: £2,943
Could anyone help with what to actually change on the online account to rectify this? We tried clicking on the "Add a missing allowance or tax relief" but the form does not make sense, as the allowances shown are correct, but the deductions are incorrect. What else is there to do.
She only works one job and is paid monthly.
I hope you can help! Or maybe at least direct us to where to find it :)

2020.10.23 21:02 Singsadsorow I was catfished over 10 years ago. (Part 4)

--- Part 4 ---
Edynn's story was that of tragedy. She had told me that she was an only child (she has 3 other siblings that i know of) she said that her dad hated her due to her mother being killed whilst in childbirth with her.(also a lie you will see a trend) she told stories of abuse from her father and eventually she moved from india to canada to live with her aunt. She had also told me that she had been raped in middleschool or highschool by another student. She had woven a story and a half and she was honestly really god at keeping it straight. Through out the time we were together im fairly certain that she had been faking a few if not all of the other people in her life that i was in communication with via some sort of messenger.
I lay this information out to help you understand that she made it very clear she was a victim NOT me. If i slipped up saying anything semi offensive i got backlash. And looking back it was a fairly abusive relationship i shouldve had a backbone but i thought i was so lucky to have her. I would comply with her every wish.. asking for forgiveness when honestly i had done nothing wrong.(looking back this is speculation but, I belive she was living multiple online persona's.)
When i wasnt undeservingly being treated like i had made a mistake. Things were great so i thought. We shared letters back and fourth and care packages we bought small gifts for each other. I had to "mail them to her friends house" im pretty sure it was her house i just per her friends name so her mom didn't open it. I would spend all day writing pages to mail to her. And im not sure how much it meant to her or how invested she was when writing me back but she would send letters back and that seemed legit.. thats what i dont know to this day if the feelings were legit or if it was simply.. a task needed to be done to keep the game rolling.
I feel that its important that i say we shared passwords to your accounts for just about everything we used... RS, myspace, gmail ect. But not facebook she claimed she didnt have a facebook but eventually would create one.. and the username of the account was a strange alias due to the effect of "morbid strangulation" now i have changed the name but thats just to give you an idea but i dont think my version does hers justice. I didnt know at the time but this was obviously a fake throwaway she only used for me, and a few friends from school. I just want you to imagine this though. You have told your parents hwy im dating a girl i met on an online game and she is real and this is what she looks like and she is from another country.. and to top it off... oh add her on facebook her username is "strangled gizzards" i was a damn loyal person until she ruined me. I stood by that weird bullshit and made my parents accept it. I must have been a shame to them. So niaive.
So as far as picture and webcams and voice chat goes... i got pictures every now and then and the excuse was that her friend was into photogrophy thats why a few of her pictures were high quality and model grade. I looked past thos because it wasnt impossible and i recieved a lot of normal pictures aswell. But if i requested a picture it wasnt a good time or if i wanted something specific i was careful not to push too hard i was met with a hard thrash... i was in trouble and didnt get to speak with her for the rest of the day. I would generally appologize and beg flr forgivness because i though i was out of line.
Next time... i want to talk about when i decided to snoop through her email/skype and what i found and idiotically ignored.
Sorry i have to make these short i dont have a lot of time to upload.
I was thinking about adding youtube links to songs that play a big part there isnt really much story behond them they are just large mental markers for this relationship. I just feel these songs are imprtant even after.

2020.10.23 19:37 Abmhos Calculating capital gains/losses with btc in Canada?

(Also posted in personalfinancecanada)
So I'm a fairly new bitcoin user in general and this is the first year i have ever actually bought something with my btc holdings so i want to ensure i go through the tax process correctly.
I make routine purchases of more bitcoins ranging from $25-$50 every so often and each time i make a new purchase i keep track of the following; Date, Amount spent in CAD, Amount received in btc, and the current market price of btc in CAD.
I recently made a purchase for goods online using some of my btc holdings and now i want to get all my information together so that come tax season i wont be caught off guard. Now my understanding from what i have researched online is that in Canada we don't use the FIFO method when calculating the capital gains/losses on a purchase made with btc we use the adjusted cost base method? Now i don't really understand how this works, would that mean for calculating gains/losses on a transaction the acquired price for said btc used would be an average of the current market rate on each one of my btc purchases i have recorded?
So for example lets say i bought btc in 3 separate weeks then on the 4th week i used all of the btc i acquired to make a purchase would i then add all of the market prices for each purchase i made during those 3 weeks together than divide by 3 and use that as the market value when comparing to the current market value of when i used the btc to make a purchase... if that makes any sense.
ANY help is appreciated thanks!

2020.10.23 18:33 Frillea My [21F] boyfriend [22M] is truly wonderful and we love each other so much, but he still deals with traumatic memories from his ex.

Hi reddit, I’m posting this for a couple reasons. One, I want to better understand how I can help and support my boyfriend. Two, how others have dealt with similar situations. And finally, to understand if this relationship is harmful in anyway to him.
Now, to begin I’d like to offer you some background to our relationship and the relationship my boyfriend had with his ex. In 2016, my boyfriend began dating a girl he met online. An LDR, and she was in a separate country. The relationship had its ups and downs but eventually he moved to her country and was there for about a year. While living their he had to deal with one of his ex’s friends, let’s call him Jim. Jim was infatuated with Karen and disliked my boyfriend because he had started dating Karen. Now, while my boyfriend was in her country he tried to find work but it was hard, so while she work he ended in playing housewife. However, there were times where Karen would hang out with friends and leave my boyfriend alone. Now, I’m not saying it’s bad to hang out with friends and spend time without your boyfriend. But the problem accuses when its male friends and Karen ends up staying out until 2am.
After two years (by that time he had also gotten engaged to her since he really did love her) my boyfriend, is starting to get tired of her controlling nature and victim blaming games. She would always turn things on him and claim it was his fault and she would do certain things. Things finally seemed to snap in my boyfriends mind when people came to him confessing of all the times she had cheated on him. My boyfriend ends up moving back to his home country torn and unsure of what to do. Since he still loves her very much.
Obviously he is hurt and turns to online communities for support. That’s where he meets me and we are friends for a year and a half. I try my best to help him through the things she had and was putting him through. The most grossest thing Karen did was have have sex with Jim while Jim recorded and they sent it to my boyfriend. They were really trying to break him. They would taunt him and it got to the point where I decided to message the girl personally. She made my blood boil. She said and this is word for word, “I was only testing him, to see if he would come back to me.” Crazy bitch, basically. Now she is cut off completely and there is no contact between her, her friends or family.
But now, that you have an understanding of where things started, I’ve been dating my boyfriend for over a year and he still has been having nightmares and I’m not sure how I can help him. Reddit, do you have any advice? I’ve tried asking him to try seeing a therapist but he doesn’t believe it will help. I’m always open to listen to him when he has these issues and I try my best to offer the best advice I can but I feel like it’s not enough. Especially since he rarely ever tells me because he feels guilty, he thinks that he should be over everything by now, and it’s wrong of him to think of someone else(even if it’s out of fear and pain). What do you think?
P.S. I just want to add that I understand that this is only one side of a very long and painful relationship and I know my boyfriend wasn’t the picture perfect boyfriend but I just want to help him with what he’s going through so I would really appreciate if you could stay off that part.

2020.10.23 16:53 messedupthrowra238 Guys don't have to like overweight and unattractive girls!

Body positivity is so incredibly bias, it actually disturbs me how any rational and fair human could think that way. Guys are expected to like and be attracted to overweight (or "plus size") women, we are "shallow" if we judge girls based on looks and overall we are portrayed as "evil, visual" people that only care for girls appearance. This is such a massive lie, it genuinely triggers me.
First of all, most women aren't attractive at all.. when they're makeup is off. In a relationship, a guy will see his girl without makeup A LOT. Most of the times they have sex, and be intimate will be when she has no makeup on. Guys date girls because of their personality mostly, because they are nice to us and treat us well, which we aren't used to receiving, and that's why guys who don't get much attention from girls get hurt and abused by women because we don't better. Any girl giving us any bit of attention makes us get our hopes up, sad reality for most men out there... unless you're tall and attractive. In which...
Girls want tall and attractive guys. It's painfully clear. Browse any sort of online content such as twitter, Youtube comments etc. and you'll see that girls completely worship attractive and tall males. Movies such as 50 shades or Grey, or 365 are insane hits among women, in which the man literally mistreats and abuses the woman.. but he's hot and rich, so girls eat it up. Looks matter to girls much more than anything else. If you're ugly, girls will friend zone you, or call you a creep or even file a sexual harassment charge against you - if you try and flirt with them (I've seen all these play out in real life multiple times). If you're hot, they'll love it. Just look at tik-toks, in which young women literally say that hot guys can touch them and be aggressive sexually. Attractive guys get swarmed with women begging to be with them. I've seen this, one of my friends is physically attractive, although is kinda short, so while tallness matters, you can overcome it - but if a taller version of him existed, girls would pick him instead of my friends. ANYWAYS, MY FRIEND JUST WAKES UP AND GIRLS ADD HIM ON SNAPCHAT, BEGGING TO MEET UP WITH HIM. I'm a fairly average looking guy and this has happened like twice in my entire life, for him, it's a regular occurrence. I have a couple hundred matches on dating apps, I'm sure he has much more.
My point in all this?
How women treat you, is dependent on how you look. Women care so much about looks, and in fact, guys are way more forgiving about a girls looks than they are to us. The whole body positivity movement is completely bias and unfair, and it's downright wrong. It's like, sympathizing with NBA players, saying that they don't get paid enough - which probably happens but I don't follow NBA so I wouldn't know, anyways, you get my point.
TLDR: If girls don't like us because of how we look, we should do the same. We don't have to like unattractive women and we should start being vocal about it, like girls are to us.

2020.10.23 15:42 Koganutz I feel like I have been wrongfully terminated, but I need some advice and other opinions.

Sorry in advance for the long post. I feel like I need to be very detailed. I would greatly appreciate any tips or advice on the matter.
I was employed as an Admissions Supervisor at a small hospital for ~4 years. A few days ago, out of the blue, I was called to the Board Room by my CFO for a "Performance Discussion". Essentially, I was terminated. They actually gave me 3 options (which I thought was strange), and said that they would leave me in the system for 30 days while I decided. I'm not getting paid during this period. I was told I have health insurance until the end of the month (October), unless I want to pursue another position in the hospital. Then I'm assuming it would continue until I found another position? The three options that they gave me are:
1.) Resign
2.) Be Termianted
3.) Apply for another position within the hospital

I want to give some back story, along with the actual 3 specific reasons they listed for my "termination"(?). The three specific reasons they listed are Tardiness(Attendance Policy), a Upfront Collections policy dispute, and a PTO request one of my employees put in. I will break down each of these points and give back story as I go.

1.) Tardiness -
My boss is a borderline abuser to her employees. She is WELL known to berrate her employees in front of other members of the staff. She had actually been reprimanded for this in the past. She has an enormous and fragile ego when it comes to people questioning her. I will not dispute that I have been late to work in the 4 years I worked for her. I have sleep issues and have trouble waking up on time. I had actually been approving on this in the last year, and seen a sleep specialist about this.
In 4 years I have never been written up for tardiness. There are specific hospital policies that require steps before any termination for this offense - Verbal Reprimand, First Written Reprimand, and Second Written Reprimand which could then result in termination.
There was an incident at the start of the Pandemic with an employee not wearing her mask. I only caught the tail end of the incident, but I could of course hear my boss screaming at the employee in the lobby. The employee walked away from my boss and said she would put the mask on. I assume she was trying to avoid further conflict. My boss took her walking away as defiance (which is reasonable), and yelled at the employee to go to HR. The next thing I heard, my boss wanted her fired. (This wasn't unusual. I had to defend multiple employees from her attacks.) I defended the employee to an extent, saying she should not be outright fired. The masking policy technically allowed employees to remove their mask if they could maintain 6-foot social distancing (which was the case in this situation). I brought this up to my boss and she began to yell at me, saying that she was defiant. I had already asked the HR director if I could be consulted on the employee before any decisions were made. So when I was speaking to my boss I asked if I could go speak to the HR director about it. She responded with, "Why?! So you can go behind my back and undermine me to HR?!" I said, "No. I'm not going behind your back. That's why I'm asking you directly." She responded, "Don't you ever do anything like that."
I told the HR director that my boss didn't want me to come to HR, but the HR director insisted that I come speak to her since I witnessed at least a portion of the situation. I was very frank with the HR director about my boss's behavior and how she treated employees. I didn't hear anything about this.
One week later, my boss announced that she was retiring at the end of the year in December. I assumed this was a bit of a suggestion from Administration. Not sure if they tried to terminate her and retiring was an option, and this could easily be speculation. The timing seemed to fit.
Not a week after that, she called me in her office and tried writing me up for tardiness. The reprimand form was a joke. It was hardly even filled out. It didn't list any specific details or dates of tardiness. I told her I wouldn't sign it because of that. She said, "Oh just forget it!" and snatched the paper out of my hand.
That day I went and applied for her job. Didn't get it.

2.) Upfront Collections Policy -
I was responsible for monitoring the Upfront Collections that my employees collected from patients. We had a policy that basically required patients that were having Routine tests/procedures to pay their copay prior to having anything done. There were exceptions when doctors marked the tests "Stat" or "Urgent". We would still ask for those copays, but they weren't required to pay prior to having anything done.
The issue with this was that in our EMR system, the online orders would default to "Routine". So from the beginning we had a procedure in place where my clerks would call the physicians' offices to clarify whether or not that priority was correct. THIS HAD ALWAYS BEEN THE CASE. We weren't calling and telling them to change the priority so the patient could have the tests done. We were verifying. In my mind, if a patient's orders had "Routine" and we turned them away, it could be a liability if there was something seriously wrong.
One day within the last few weeks, my boss questioned why a clerk called the office. I said that we have always done this since the policy was put into place. She said, "NO! That's not what we do!" She began berrating me about how the office will just change the priority so the patient can have something done. I informed her that I had actually recently called the office myself and the office said they couldn't rightfully call the patient Stat or Urgent. This is what we had done since the policy's implementation. I had to bring up again how it defaulted to "Routine", but that didn't matter. I'm assuming after this altercation she went to the CFO about it. I didn't hear anything else.
When I clarified with my CFO in the meeting he even said, "Oh, I guess I didn't fully understand that situation. I'll follow up on that." I wanted to say, "Yeah you dumbass you don't understand a lot that goes on in your department!" but I maintained professionalism.

3.) PTO request -
I had an employee recently request off a weekend date in the Emegency Department. I don't remember the conversation, but I had a note on my calendar saying that she would find someone to swap with her. I hadn't heard anything else about it. I (perhaps inappropriately) assumed that she wouldn't be taking the day off since she hadn't told me about a swap.
The day before she was scheduled to work she sent me a message asking if I had someone to work for her. I said no, but that I would see what I could do. I asked a bunch of my employees and no one could come in. I told her I needed to work it. She responded, "Seriously! It's my God daughter's wedding!" and "I'll be at work but I am not happy about it!"
So at that point my job was done in my mind. The shift was covered. My job wasn't to make sure people had days off. It was to get the shifts filled. The employee seemed okay being a martyr instead of calling me and asking any futher. I still believe if she had called and been straight forward, I would've found a way to be back in town and fill the shift myself. I tried my best to help her out, aside from putting my weekend plans aside for her.
This was (in my mind) simply a miscommunication on both of our parts. I don't think I'm completely in the right on this point. I just believe this was a miscommunication and misunderstanding. Not a terminable offense.
Regardless, I called the employee in my office Monday morning to talk to her. She was very upset and starting getting very loud and crying. I was trying to console her and apologize that she missed the wedding. Queue my boss hearing from the other room and letting herself into my office.
My boss completely sided with the employee. She didn't give me any backup at all. I was completely in the wrong in her mind. I want to mention that she knows this particular employee personally. She knew her when she was hired. The employee's husband owns a local restaurant, and my boss is a big-wig elite in our little town. I'm unsure if she would've reacted the same way with any other employee.

Conclusion -
So do I have a case here against the hospital at all? I still need to express some of these concerns with the HR director. I want to make sure she understands the full extent of the situation. I feel like this is a retalitory act by my boss, but I need more opinions on it. Or should I just suck it up and accept another position so I can continue to pay for my mortgage, bills, etc? I'll take any advice.
**Note*\* I did want to add that I had another reprimand over a year ago about an issue. I approached HR about this. I came forward and was honest about what I had done wrong. They could have fired me for this, but they felt I was too valuable of an employee at the time. I suppose that is out the window now. I was also under the impression that our reprimands went away after a rolling 12-month period.

TL;DR - Employer fired me for 1 legitimate reason (Tardiness) that they didn't follow the proper policies and procedures for at all, and 2 non-issues IMO. What do?

2020.10.23 15:21 JcFuerza NEW SURVIVAL GAME - 331 Tips and Tricks for Frostborn - New on Android

Tl;dr 1 - Frostborn just released globally! it is an awesome multiplayer survival game based on Norse mythology. I have followed it for over a year and it has finally released. It has fun co-op challenges and good PVP. Classes in the game are really grindy, but other than that, the game is amazing.
Tl;dr 2 - I have made a concise high quality video that has even more info https://youtu.be/W38A5wks-8o
But for those of you who don't like videos, here is my video script:
After six months of a secret beta testing and then a year of closed beta, Kefir has finally released Frostborn to the world on Android and IOS is coming soon! Frostborn is a true multiplayer game with dynamic skills for each of the 15 classes you can specialize in, an intriguing storyline based on Norse mythology, difficult co-op challenges and epic PvP. Frostborn can be challenging if you don’t know what you are doing so in this video I have 331 tips and tricks for you.
When you first start the game, you will be prompted to choose between warrior, bowman and curer. This is not a permanent choice as you will be able to switch between these classes anytime you want so I recommend choosing the bowman because the bow it gives you is the best weapon out of the 3 for protecting your base at a low level. You will also be able to change your appearance later on, but if you want to change your name later on, it will cost you coins so choose wisely.
After you hit confirm, talk to the elder of the town and then to the Warcheif who will make you choose a land to gather resources in. The Viking Lands is currently the only option in the game so choose that one, and then make your way out of the town to head to your camp.
When you arrive at your camp, the game begins. Your task is to build up an awesome house that can contain the amazing wealth you will get in the game. This house can get raided by other players, but if you follow the steps that I have in this video, you will have nothing to worry about and you will grow extremely powerful and wealthy in this game.
Your first step to getting there is to follow the tasks on the top left part of your screen. Some advanced players might ignore this part because they know what they are doing, but they will regret it because these tasks unlock valuable rewards and if you do them out of order, the game will force you to repeat them to get credit for the task which is extremely annoying. After you finish the first 3 acts, the tasks slow down and it is easier to just start playing the game.
During those 3 acts, you will start to notice that advancing in this game involves 3 main things. Upgrading your district, building up your camp, and upgrading classes.
As you level up your district to the maximum level of 190, you will access new perks to playing the game. Every time your Craftsman is upgraded, you get access to new blueprints with the last set of blueprints unlocked at lvl 111. Every time your bank is upgraded, you get more storage slots to keep items here which are unraidable. The architect allows you to build more chests and doors. The Shaman increases your chance to find rare items. The tax collector gives you a daily supply of silver. The tavern owner gives you a daily quest for silver. The trader allows you to spend that silver on a selection of items, but I don’t recommend this in most situations because silver is a rarer resource for f2p players. The scout lets you spend silver to unlock a new event which gives influence points if you defeat waves of enemies. When you are doing this event, I recommend bringing minimal gear because you will not get a break until it is over and it is hard to grab the items you dropped. Or by watching some of my gameplay videos so that you can see exactly what you need to complete each wave. In regards to the Scout, it is important to note that you can do any wave at any level if you exit your district and enter the popular District, but it does cost twice as much silver to do so. In the popular District, you will also notice a repair bench in which you can spend silver to repair your best items. Now eventually, we will be able to build one of these repair benches in our own districts which will not cost us any silver to use, but that does not happen until District level 183, so it is best to get used to spending the silver for the time being. In the popular District, you will also notice the altar to Odin which I will be talking about later and a statue. Once a day, you can activate the statue to get access to a yellow zone that is not a PVP Zone. This means that once a day, you can loot a tomb and kill it’s boss without the concern of being ganked by other players. And then lastly the horse vendor and dock master are just for show right now as they represent content that is currently not in the game.
So that is an overview of upgrading your District in New Heim. The rest of this video was recorded 3 months ago, but global was postponed so I didn't released it because I wanted to make sure it was up to date. I have gone through it and everything is now up to date, but I have switched microphones since then so sometimes the audio is a little weird.
The second and a bigger area of progression, is upgrading your camp which is most often referred to by players as your base.
As you start to build your base, there are five things you need to keep in mind.
First, you need to decide whether or not you are going to play this game with a team. Frostborn is designed to be a four player game and while it is possible to succeed at this game by yourself, it is a lot more fun with teammates even if they're not the best teammates. If you do not have friends that want to play with you, I recommend clicking settings and joining Frostborn’s official Discord. I have also put a link in the pinned comment of this video. That is going to be the best place to find teammates. Once you find your three teammates, you can click on this icon to invite them into your family. If you do not see that person, it is probably because they are in a different server so go to settings and make sure that y'all are all on the same server. If you play on a server that is outside of your region, you will experience more lag, but this is worse for some than others. For example, I do not experience that much lag when I play on the European or Asian servers even though I live in North America. Now it is important to note that a family is not like a clan in other games. Your family functions more like a squad would in Pubg so you do not want to invite someone who is barely ever going to play the game, and ideally you want people you can trust with everything you have, but I’ll talk more about that later. The reason this is important to decide now is because once they join your family, your bases will be put in juxtaposition and you can connect your walls with your family members to build a larger and more powerful base.
The second thing you need to keep it in mind about building your base is where to put your doors. A well-placed door is the most powerful tool you can have in defending your base so the devs have limited them to only 20 per player. When placing these 20 doors, you need to factor in defense, workflow, and the position of your teammates walls and doors.
The third thing to note is that this trapdoor takes you to your vault which includes 25 slots that no one will ever be able to raid so make sure to put your best items in this vault. Excluding of course the ones you were going to use to defend your base.
Stuff placed in your workbenches are also safe from being raided, but stuff in your boxes are not unless you follow the tips later in this video. Also, You can control whether or not your teammates have access to your workbenches or boxes with this button.
The fourth thing to keep in mind is that you cannot plant trees so if you want to implement trees into your house design, then you need to make sure not to cut down the ones that start out on your land.
And then the last thing to keep in mind that your base will not be raided in the first 48 hours of starting the game so you have some time to prepare. It will also not be raided if you are below level 10, but if you follow the tips in this video, you will hit level 10 within the first two hours of playing the game.
Obviously, I have a lot more tips on this subject so if that interests you, make sure to check out my playlist on designing and protecting your base.
As you visit the zones available to you, more of the world map will unlock. Once it is fully unlocked, it will look something like this.
When you are first starting out, you will want to spend the majority of your time in the green zones. The green zones provide wood, stone, cloth, rope, fiber, seeds, and all of the iron that you will need when you are just starting off. The chests of the green zone also have some great items and will even on rare occasion have some weapons in them so it is good to check them, but a lot of people scavenge for chests, so sometimes it is hard to get to them first. But that is okay because the main purpose of farming the green zone is to get rich in its main resources and then using your low-level workbenches to turn those resources into building materials, clothing, food, medicine and weapons. The best weapon to use in the green zone is the spear and the best class to use at first is the curer because it will give you more sustainability, but once you hit level 30, the best class to use is the sorcerer which allows you to 1-Shot most enemies with a spear's sneak attack. Getting a sneak attack is achieved by pressing this button to sneak and then attacking an enemy from behind. This will cause you to do 300% of the decimaled damage rounded up. I'll explain more how that works in another video.
If you finish farming all of the resources of a zone and you still have room in your backpack, just leave and then re-enter the zone. As long as the chests were empty and everyone else also left the zone, the zone will be reset including a new group of random people. This will allow you to farm a lot more resources and save you a ton of energy. Generally the green zone is a relaxing place to farm, but every once in a while you will find people that try to rally a bunch of enemies over to kill you. This is annoying, but as long as you keep your health high, you will never die to this because you can simply run to the edge of the zone for immediate safety. After you do this once or twice and they realize they're wasting their time, they are unlikely to do it again.
If you are farming with your teammates, I recommend going over to one of the chests when no one else is around, and stacking all of your less common items so that you have more room to gather resources as a team. Also, if you have one teammate who is willing to buy a the level 2 backpack for a buck50 at the Carnage event, then you can take turns hauling items back to the base while the rest of the team continues to farm which will save a ton of energy.
As you level up, you get one extra hit point every time you level up and then three extra hit points at level 99 totally at 200 base hit points.
Once you get around level 25, then you will want to start looking for nails and leather strips. Nails are extremely rare in the game until you build the workbench which allows you to turn iron into nails so it is important that before you build this workbench, you try not to use nails and leather strips are rare for newer players so it is best to save up on them as well. The best way to find nails and leather strips, is to scavenge the chests of the yellow and red pvp zones without being noticed by players who have turned on aggressive mode.
When you enter one of these zones, it will ask you if you want to enter as a solo or team player. Entering as a solo player is safer, but there will only be two chests in the zones, whereas, if you enter as a team player, there will be four chests in the zones and a much better chance of finding a tomb. Tombs are nice because there are two unguarded chests in the beginning of each of them which also might have leather strips and nails. These tombs have more chests which have even more nails and leather strips, but completing them requires quite a bit of time which makes it more likely that you will get caught by aggressive players and requires more weapons and food which makes it more costly when you die.
So I recommend using level 1 armor, level 1 backpack, a stack of 10 food items, a speed potion if you have one, and either a spear or a green weapon to scavenge for chests. If a giant is guarding one of the chests, clear all of the other mobs and then bring it about 15 seconds out and then double back to go get the chest. make sure to get close enough to him that he activates his skill as you pass him so that you have even more time. I also recommend using the hunter class if you have it unlocked because the extra speed will help you avoid enemies and aggressive players. If an aggressive player attacks you and you are not fast enough to get away, run through the mobs so that he will no longer be able to chase you without taking damage from them. Often, the school make your enemy take a longer way around which gives you enough time to get out of his zone.
But even using this method of scavenging you will probably get killed quite a few times. Personally, I think this is one of the best parts of the game because it's kind of like you're playing hide and go seek with strangers that want to kill you. This of course would be horrifying in real life but it is an exhilarating challenge in this game and eventually you will grow strong enough to where you no longer have to run away.
Once you get these nails and leather strips, you can make them into strong hatchets and strong pickaxes to farm copper and Maple in those same yellow and red zones which requires you to play death hide and go seek once again.
A lot of players give up at this point in the game. Don't give up!! To some people, building the workbench is the hardest challenge of Frostborn, but once your team farms the five copper deposits and 9 maple trees to build its first workbench, your whole team will become intermediate players and the game will get a lot easier because it will allow you to make your own nails which is the key to a lot of the best gear including shovels which is the most efficient weapon in the game. So don't give up because I promise you, the satisfaction of placing that workbench and knowing that no one can ever take it from you is well worth it.
After you build your workbench, you will want to start preparing for Odin's. Odin's is the key to becoming an advanced player in this game, but it will take quite a bit of preparation. At this time, you will need more iron than the green zones will afford you pushing you to start farming in the yellow and red zones. Luckily, farming iron in these zones is not nearly as dangerous has scavenging chests and tombs because not only are you using level 1 pickaxes, but you can farm most of the iron while staying near the edge of the map which usually allows you to escape when you see an aggressive player.
You will also want to start doing tombs at this time because they provide a lot of items and resources you can't get anywhere else and it shouldn't be that hard now that you have your workbench because you can craft the resources to do them pretty quickly.
How you approach the tomb is different for each resource you are trying to farm, but as a general rule, it is best to take the quickest route possible to the boss at the end, kill the boss, loot him and the chests around him and then start working your way back towards the beginning. But again, how you do the tomb is a largely dependent on what resource you are trying to get. If you have any trouble getting any resource in this game, make sure you check out my series called the efficacious way to get rich in which I cover hundreds of tips and tricks on farming every resource in the game.
Once you gather enough materials for shovels, bows, food, quilted armor, and a few staffs of defense, you can start completing Odin's. The enemies and chests of Odin's will give you wood, silver, and gold pendants which will allow you to open the caches on the first floor of Odin's. These caches have amazing armor, weapons and some resources for advanced play.
Killing the giant Chief on the first floor gives you the key to open the Sanctum and then killing The necromancer at the end of the sanctum will give you a key to the forge. Once you get 3 forge keys, your team can enter the forge which allows you to earn more pendants and the bosses of the forge often drop the best and rarest items in the game.
The first boss of the forge called The whisperer will also drop a key to the archives which is extremely difficult, but the bosses of the archives give extremely rare PVP gear.
In fact, one of the things I love about Frostborn is that most of the best items in the game have been removed from the shop forcing players to actually play the game to get the best items.
That being said, if you are struggling and don't mind paying for an advantage on completing this challenge, the devs have created a PVE gear set specifically for you call the instigator set. This set is not the best gear for PVP unless you are maybe the hunter class, but it can help you earn that amazing gear by helping you complete Odin's.
But I can also help you complete Odin's for free just by watching my playlist on Odin's so if you are planning to spend money on this game, I would recommend spending it first on the backpack at the Carnage event, then on a repair table, then on premium, then if you still have more money you want to spend, I would recommend the first savings pack after it is full, then on the second savings pack after it is full. and then after all of that, if you still want to spend money then I would recommend buying metal walls because even if you are not planning on doing a lot of raiding. You can trade the vast amount of resources you get from these packs with active players for the best items in the game.
But if you are going to trade items in this game, make sure to watch my video on how to do it so you don’t get cheated.
However, if you are a completely free to play player, then you have come to the right place because it is possible to play Frostborn completely free to play and I would love to show you how.
The most pay to win aspect of Frostborn is raiding because it is almost impossible to farm for lots of stone and metal walls, but it's not that difficult to buy them; however, this is actually not that big of a deal if you understand frostborn's new raiding system so here is how it works.
When you start the game, you will start out with a 48-hour shield. During this time, no one can raid you which allows you to the build up lots of walls to protect your stuff for when the shield disappears. When a family leader hits "start raid", it will begin a 20-minute search for other similar families that no longer have a shield. When it finds four families of similar size and level and activity, it will put the four of you together so that y'all can raid each other for 20 minutes. After that 20 minute window is over, you get another 48 hour shield. But the brilliance of frostborn's matchmaking system is that it includes activity so if you don't raid other people, you will get matched with other people that don't raid other people either which means that they are not likely to raid you. Now you're not completely safe, because some people won't raid for months and then decide that this is the day that they want to raid someone, but as long as your team activates the raid search every time your shield runs out, you can make sure that you are always on during that raiding window which means that you can defend your base and defenders get a huge advantage in this game because they can use walls to control sight and they can use doors to control movement which allows them to pick when the battle happens and when it doesn't. Which often allows you to kill your attackers and claim their stuff as your own.
Furthermore, while Stone and metal walls are pay to win, the Sledge hammers and Nord bombs used to break those walls are actually easier to obtain by playing the game creating a strange dichotomy between free-to-play and pay to win players at high levels.
The second thing that players generally feel are pay to win is classes, but I would argue that the devs did not set this up as pay to win, but rather that it is an extremely grind a part of the game and of course spending money could alleviate that grind some. Regardless, understanding the classes will help you a lot so let me give you some tips on classes. As I mentioned, when you start the game, I recommend using the curer to farm the green zone because it will give you the most sustainability and ultimately save you a lot of food. When you first start leveling up, it will be very easy to unlock more classes because the tasks are generally easy to do, but once you get to level 20, the classes will start to require getting Mastery points to unlock. You can obtain these Mastery points by donating weapons and armor to the altar in the center of New Heim.
The first class that I recommend donating mastery points for is the Sorcerer I because it will make farming green zones way easier and easily pay for itself over time. That being said, if your family chooses roles and you will not be farming a lot of green zones, than it doesn't really make sense for you to get the sorcerer I. After that, I recommend spending the master points to get Hunter I so then you can have the extra speed for scavenging chests and farming Maple, copper and iron in PvP zones. Then I recommend that at least one person in your family spin the Mastery points to get The illusionist I so that you can reset enemies at Odin's.
After that, you need to choose and start working towards a PVE class. For most people, I recommend choosing the berserk II because the berserk is the best PVE class in the game because it gets a huge bonus with shovels which is the most efficient weapon in the game, it can get amazing sneak attacks with the Vran Axe which is the best early game sneak attack weapon and the Berzerk receives 20% less damage from ranged attacks which is incredibly helpful at Odin's. However, I would recommend that at least one of your teammates works towards Rouge II because after you complete Odin's once, the Rogue's using piercing daggers to initiate sneak attacks, will make all of your berserkers with shovels do more damage and eventually allows you to do crazy damage with a fire dagger assuming that someone on your team has a repair bench to repair it afterwards.
So 3 berserkers and one Rogue is my recommendation, but if you are planning on maxing out your ranger line and want to go ahead and get started on that, then the Pathfinder is also good PVE class choice because you do a lot of extra damage with a simple bow which is helpful against wood Giants and eventually allows you to use less of a 5 shot crossbow to group together and kill all of the Giants of Odin's.
After you have gotten your PVE class, then you can start working towards your PVP class. When choosing your PVP class, you need to coordinate with your family to make sure you guys are not choosing the same roles. In the current meta, there are three good team compositions right now. The first one and most balanced of the three is a tank, a support and two ranged damage dealers (usually 1 mage and 1 ranger). The second one is two tanks, a support and a damage dealer. This team comp is the easiest as it allows you to do well even if you make some mistakes. And then the third one is two bruisers and two damage dealers almost always including one Hunter. This is the most difficult composition to pull off, but a team that is really skilled at PVP can use this composition to take out half the enemy team before they even realize they're in a fight.
It is also important that every team has at least one of these classes on their team because these classes all have initiation skills which allows your team to choose when it is best to initiate a fight in open battle.
So after talking to your family, choosing your class will be largely based on your playstyle.
All of the classes are amazing and a good choice, but here are just a few tips of each of the classes.
In addition to being the best PVE class, a berserk with a high damage weapon is also a good PVP character because his extreme damage can often throw off another player who thought they had more time to heal. However, a talented ranged player can easily outmaneuver a berserk and whittle down his health.
The protector is an incredible strong tank. He is not that great at solo play because he has trouble landing kills, but on a team, the protector is amazing. And with a healer, he is practically unkillable. In fact, in the current meta I recommend that every team has a protector in their family because a talented protector that knows when to initiate, can make almost any team win that fight.
The thrasher is the second best tank in the game, and has the best team initiation skill in the game. If a thrasher lands his leap skill well and his team is on the same page, that team can easily get a conclusive advantage before the fight has even begun.
The ice mage is a decent solo character, but it is an amazing team character. His ice wall can not only initiate team battles but often splits the enemy team giving your team a huge advantage.
The fire mage is the highest damage dealer in the game if he is able to build up his fire stacks and he has a long-range team stun. The stun duration is not long enough to make the skill good for initiating a fight, but it is one of the best skills to use right as the teams start to fight.
The illusionist is probably the best mage overall right now and this is particularly true in Solo play. In fact, the illusionist might be the best solo class in the game because not only does he do a lot of damage, but his clones can make him a little bit Tanky and he can single-handedly shred through half the durability of his enemies' armor in just a few seconds.
The healer can hold its own in Solo play, but no other class is as good for a team than the healer. Healing is hard to come by in the middle of a PvP fight so a good healer can easily double the effectiveness of his team. In fact, in the current meta, I believe every team should have healer.
The sorcerer is most easily used to help your team in PVE, but a talented sorcerer can shut down an enemy team with his curse spell which is far more powerful than most people realize.
The Shaman is the best solo class out of the support classes, but it is still much better in a team context. You have to keep in mind that with all three of these support classes, their weapons like the hel staff give their entire team huge bonuses. The shaman is particularly helpful because he can take one-player out of the battle for almost seven seconds which gives his team significant numbers advantage.
The Rogue is a great PVE character being able to deal over a thousand damage in with one sneak attack on monsters and also has the most potential for burst damage as a PVP character, but his skills are also hard to use in a PvP context.
The bandit is actually more of a tank character. Even though he uses medium armor, his health and crowd control skills makes him function more like a tank. His area stun can be difficult to use, but since it stuns enemies and not teammates, if it is landed well, it can often guarantee a team win.
The assassin is one of the best solo PVP classes in the game. A good assassin can often take down half your health before you even realize you are in a fight. But after the assassin uses his burst of damage, he is just a short-range damage dealer which can easily be outmaneuvered in both solo and team play.
The Pathfinder is an amazing ranged damage dealer, but the Pathfinder's true power lies in his ability to mark people which makes everyone do more damage to that target. This damage is multiplicative to other buffs making it even more powerful than it seems at first glance.
The sharpshooter is also a great range damage dealer and he has quite a bit of crowd control including a stun arrow that can travel across the entire map.
And then lastly, the hunter is one of the best solo PVP classes because he can run quite a bit faster than everyone else which lets him run away or chase someone better than anyone else.
So that is an overview of the 15 classes, but I obviously have a lot more information on each one and the devs have said that they are going to be adding more to the game so if you want to know more about all of the classes, make sure to check out my playlist covering every detail of every class.
As I mentioned earlier, many players feel like the class system is pay to win, but in actuality, the class system is just a ridiculous grind. The reason I say this is because it would be very expensive for a pay-to-win player to buy class ranks costing at least $500 to Max out 1 class line.
That being said, I'm not surprised that it still feels pay-to-win as this lines up perfectly with my scientific formula for free to play games which measures how likely a game community will feel like the game is pay to win. On that scale, the first 10 classes rank in grade A (obviously with the first five being a lot easier than the second five) and the last five fit in grade B which is unfortunate because the last five include some of the best classes. These classes are new so I am hopeful that the devs will make this easier in the future and I have reached out to the devs multiple times encouraging them to ease up on these constraints because the grind is not pleasant. In my opinion the best way to fix this problem, would be if they unlocked each class separately. So that you didn't have to upgrade two classes that you don't want just to max out on the class that you do want. This would allow tier 2 free to play players to max out the class of their choice within 3 months which I think would feel really great. If you agree, make sure to let the devs know in their discord server.
As you play the game, there are a ton of other things you will find in this game so let me go through them real quick.
When you first hit level six and travel in the world map, the Carnage event will appear. This is an amazing event which gives you a huge boost early on. Make sure to go quickly to give yourself enough time to bring everything home.
A forgotten tomb event can also appear on rare occasions. This is a really fun event for new players and offers great loot. If you have or can make a strong pickaxe,make sure to bring it to collect the copper at the end. And if you're going with the team then you will have some extra inventory space leftover so it might also be good to bring two normal hatchets to cut down all the trees in that area.
The cursed Town event is one of the most common events you will see and it has decent loot for new players, but it is also a PVP event so only bring gear you are willing to lose or go with your team with your best gear if you want to PvP with other low-level teams. If you are an advanced player, this event it's kind of a ghost town, but maybe that will change now that global is out.
But if you are an advanced player looking for a great PVP event, then the burial ground is the much better choice. This event includes over a hundred enemies usually killed by multiple different teams clearing the area and then after clearing the fourth waves, a boss will appear. At this point, if it hasn't happened already, many of the teams will go into aggressive mode to kill the other teams so that they can be the only ones to kill the boss Gorm and get the awesome loot in his cache. This event is designed to be a bloodbath and while I do recommend doing it because it sounds so fun, I do not recommend doing it for loot unless your team is confident in your PVP skills.
When you farm yellow and red zones, you will sometimes run into the invisible bosses Gunnarr-Viper, Hauk Dire and Brand Warrior. Each of these bosses will drop they're unique ring and once you collect all three, you will be able to unlock the tomb of Ash which sometimes appears as an extra Tomb in team red zones. The tomb of Ash has incredibly fun challenges and a lot of copper so make sure to bring several strong pickaxes, but keep in mind that this is still a PVP zone. Once you open it with the rings, any team that has access to that zone, can enter and try to take it from you. So once you make it past the first fire trap, I recommend to turn it back on to make it harder for other teams to follow you. The loot in this event is kind of trash right now which is sad because it's such a fun event so I encouraged the devs to add a chance to get a level 3 backpack because that would definitely create a lot more PVP in this zone. We'll see if they do it. One little bit of trivia on the tomb of Ash is that the three invisible bosses and the tomb of Ash extend the life of a zone making it to where the zone does not reset as quickly.
Lastly, when you reach level 50, your team can take on Hel's Envoy. Hel's Envoy is a strong boss with three powerful skills that can easily devastate your whole team. As in all these events, I give a lot more tips in my video dedicated to them, the main thing you need to know with Hel's Envoy is that you should clear all of the surrounding mobs first and then fight him away from the middle so that if you die, you can get your stuff back. And then lastly, that he drops some really good items.
So that is an overview of the game, but in addition to these 293 Tips and tricks, I have 38 more for you.
If you have good loot on you, then take it home. This might seem simple, but our greed and optimism can often make us want to farm for just a little bit more and though we might get away with it sometimes, when we don't it cost us a lot so just get in the habit of bringing good loot home. This is especially true if you kill someone and get good loot, because often that player will go get better gear or get more of his teammates to log on, to come back and kill you. So bring his stuff home to lock it in. If someone goes down instead of dying, then that means they have a teammate online so be careful. If one of your teammates goes down, stays in one place and does not get attacked anymore, then you have 50 seconds to revive them. If they go down again after you revive them, the time will it be reduced to 34 seconds, and then 25, and then 20, 17, and so on until the 50th time in which they will die instantly. If a player moves while they are down, those times I just mentioned are reduced by 33% so if you are down, it is best to stay still as much as you can. When a player dies, all of their items lose between 15-20% of their durability. So technically if no one ever did any PVP, we would all be a lot richer, but it's really fun to do PVP and if you're good at it it is lucrative so just keep it in mind. Equipment in Frostborn is divided into 4 colors, but they are not all created equal. For example, the poison bow is a little bit better than the reaper staff. And Odin’s altar is even worse so there are some items you never want to put in the altar and there are other items like the crossbow of shadows, that I always put in the altar. Best weapons for defending your base in a fight you can’t win a cheap bow because you can be incredibly annoying. And firebombs if you are outnumbered. Fire bombs are particularly helpful because they ignore armor. Always prepare your base before a raiding time because you won’t think clearly while being raided. on the flip side, if you are raiding someone else, breaking walls quickly freaks out defenders which makes it harder for them to respond well. As soon as you start the game, you should be trying to build all of your level 1 walls and doors immediately. This is not difficult to do and it will make your base a lot harder to raid. Furthermore, it will also help you realize flaws in your design early so that if you end up having to rearrange something, you can just destroy that level one wall instead of a level 2 or 3 wall later on if you would already upgraded it Likewise, you should build all 40 of your chests right away. Perfectionist will be very bothered by building these extra chests, but you should do it anyways because the more empty chests you have, the more likely the people raiding your base will waist lockpicks by opening the wrong chest. I also recommend upgrading your chest as much as you can because not only will they have to use higher-level lockpicks, but all of those resources you use to upgrade those chests will never be able to be stolen from you. There are a ton of items that don’t yet exist in the game, like the horse and the boat. They will probably come out with those in future updates and I will post videos about them as soon as they do, but in the meantime, I would suggest watching my video on all of the items that do not exist yet in the game. You can cancel a spell by putting your finger exactly on this and then releasing. by pressing on your mini-map, it will make a ping alerting your teammates to the position of that ping on their minimaps. This is incredibly helpful for telling your teammates were an enemy is or anything else that you guys might be talking about. On that note, I strongly recommend joining voice chat with your team, because even if you do not feel comfortable talking, just being able to listen to your teammates that do feel comfortable talking, will make a huge difference in PvP. You can also use this trick of filling your inventory with non resource items and 1 copper or one maple and then clicking your character on auto which will reveal if there is copper or Maple is on that map and the direction to find it.
... Cuts off... 40k character limit for posts 😂😂
Tl;dr 1 - Frostborn just released globally! it is an awesome multiplayer survival game based on Norse mythology. I have followed it for over a year and it has finally released. It has fun co-op challenges and good PVP. Classes in the game are really grindy, but other than that, the game is amazing.
Tl;dr 2 - I have made a concise high quality video that has even more info https://youtu.be/W38A5wks-8o

2020.10.23 13:37 mathmischief RaizAU Beginners Guide (Updated!)

Many thanks to u/kvramji and u/inertia_2017 whose original Acorns (and subsequently Raiz) guide this is built on top of (with a few FAQs from Raiz themselves).
This post was last updated on October 23, 2020, and I'll endeavour to update it periodically.
What is Raiz?
Raiz is a financial service, helping you to save and invest your money. They enable Australians to start early, invest often, and reach their financial goals.
How does Raiz work?
Raiz helps you proactively invest. One key feature is round-ups; we round up each of your transactions to the nearest dollar, and invest the change into a diversified portfolio. Simply connect a debit card, or other funding source, then provide us with some basic information. We give you the option of choosing a portfolio that is in line with your investment goals and the amount of risk you’re comfortable taking.
Note that Raiz offers other great ways of investing besides round-ups, for more info please see this article.
What are the fees?
Once an account is opened, there are no fees on $0 balances and after that there is a monthly fee as follows:
Portfolio Balance (<$10,000) Balance ($10,000 and up)
All portfolios (exc. Sapphire) $2.50 p/month (charged monthly) 0.275% p.a. (charged monthly, computed daily)
Sapphire $2.50 p/month + 0.275% p.a. (charged monthly, computed daily) $2.50 p/month + 0.275% p.a. (charged monthly, computed daily)
An rough idea of monthly fees on a range of balances can be seen below:
Average Monthly Balance All portfolios (exc. Sapphire) Sapphire
$500 $2.50 $2.61
$1,000 $2.50 $2.73
$2,500 $2.50 $3.07
$5,000 $2.50 $3.65
$10,000 $2.29 $4.79
$20,000 $4.58 $7.08
$50,000 $11.46 $13.96
Any other fees, including any future changes can be found here.
Raiz Beginners Guide
What’s Dollar Cost Averaging (DCA)? Dollar Cost Averaging is basically spreading your investments in such a way that you can take advantage of the ever fluctuating daily price of stocks. The best example of this concept is given in a simple example here.
What do you mean by Portfolio?
Raiz uses the money which is put into the app by making you pick a type of profile which is differentiated from one another by the risk involved, as well as a few other characteristics (socially responsible, or an exposure to Bitcoin). The risk factor varies, depending on the portfolio. A breakdown based on portfolio can be found in the table below, including the minimum suggested investment timeframe (MSIT):
Risk Level (Raiz Defined) Portfolio MSIT
Low Conservative 3 months
Low to Moderate Moderately Conservative 1 year
Moderate Moderate 2 years
Moderate to High Moderately Aggressive 3 to 5 years
High Aggressive 5 to 7 years
Moderate to High Emerald 3 to 5 years
Very High Sapphire 5+ years
NOTE: Once you decide which portfolio to go by, try to not change between portfolios if you see a loss in the value of the account initially. Stick by it and don’t keep changing portfolio, because you might lose more while changing portfolio because it involves selling and buying stocks at different rates.
What portfolio should I pick?
Common question. It all depends on the amount of risk you are willing to take. There are also portfolios available if you'd prefer a socially responsible portfolio, or an exposure to Bitcoin. The longer you intend to hold your money in your account, the higher risk you might be willing to take.
NOTE: Do NOT panic when you see a down day with a loss against your portfolio. The BEST thing you can think of is DCA. If you have set up recurring investments, you are going to see gains as soon as the stocks go up in price.
Which portfolio performs the best?
Common question. Raiz releases an annual report that provides a summary of portfolio performance, typically in August.
Portfolio performance for the past two years, for all portfolios (excluding Sapphire) can be found here.
Something to note: past performance is not a reliable indicator of future performance. Just because a portfolio has done well over the years, it is no guarantee that will continue to be the case, and things such as pandemics, market crashes and the like do happen. Pick a portfolio that suits your needs.
What is Raiz Rewards?
This is a feature in Raiz which gives you some percentage of the money spent for purchasing with vendors they have tie ups with. The method that you use varies slightly for online and in store purchases.
Online Vendors
To ensure you can get the rewards, go to your PC to the online retail store and add items to the cart. Make sure you go via the Raiz website (or App) to the vendor either on the PC or mobile. Finalize the payments via the link that Raiz takes you by and finish the purchase.
In Store Vendors
To ensure you can get the rewards, go to your App, click Rewards -> In-Store.
Click the vendor option, and select 'Activate Now'. Then, go shopping in store with that reward partner. Make sure you use a card that is linked to your Raiz account.
Payment of Rewards
This percentage that is listed in Raiz Rewards can take up to 90 days (typically 30 days for online, 90 days for in store purchases/Raiz Energy) to show up under the Raiz Rewards column in the "History" window in the mobile app. The percentage varies with each vendor.
What about dividends?
Dividends get paid periodically on the ETF holdings that you have, proportional to the amount of each ETF you own on as of the ex-dividend date. These dividends are invested into your Raiz account, approximately one business day after payment date.
Raiz run an annual blog post outlining the dates that dividends are expected to be paid (they vary slightly). That can be found here.
What about taxes?
Raiz will provide you with tax information at the end of financial year which tells you how to report any earnings from your Raiz account. It comes in the form of a Tax Statement, and is typically available in the third week of July.
This can be found in app by going to My Settings -> Support -> View Statements
How long do transactions stay in pending?
Raiz typically takes up to five business days for taking the money from your account and buying shares and for it to show up as processed. So don’t panic if it takes a few days. It’s a common thing.
Well I've read through this and I've got another issue - where can I go for help?
The Raiz Support crew are available to help you out with your Raiz issues. I've had personal experiences in the past where I've needed a hand, and they've been really great.
You can find more info on how to contact them on the Raiz Support webpage. Or hit them up on Twitter, Facebook, etc.

2020.10.23 12:16 NishinosanTV Irene (Red Velvet) Megathread: News, Statements and more

This megathread covers the controversy regarding Irene (Bae Joo-hyun), member of the K-Pop Idol group Red Velvet, and her alleged verbal bullying of stylist/editor Kang Kookhwa.
DO NOT make new posts related to this story to the subreddit. If you have new information/articles, add them to the comments below so they can be integrated into the main post. Mods may allow a new post for a significant change or official announcement at their discretion.
We have a TL;DR and bullet-points to summarize events so far and the table below links to all relevant sources and posts:

Summary

Credit to u/lowelled here and u/LilGuzu here for this summary.
A famous stylist/editor (Kang Kookhwa, Instagram u/lookooks, worked a lot with Vogue, GQ etc, previous clients include Amber, Krystal, Ga-In, Lee Hi, Yesung, Bumkey, Primary, Jaurim, Jay Park, Suho, pH-1) posted on Instagram about a client, a female celebrity, who had been incredibly rude to her during a shoot, screaming at her for 20 minutes. She claimed she had an audio recording though she didn't post it. She tagged it #monster and #psycho, which made people speculate that it was Irene.
They went back through her Instagram and pointed out that she’d posted compliments towards Irene before, complimenting her visuals and posting positively about Monster - she went back and deleted the first and edited the latter to remove any mention of Irene which basically confirmed it in a lot of people’s eyes.
Tons of ex and current SM staff liked the accusation, as well as staff from other companies. One backup dancer from Red Velvet liked it and one of SM's former video directors tweeted that he's surprised it took this long for the truth to be revealed. And then the rumours started swirling that it was between either Seulgi and Irene.
kpopthoughts also has a summarizing post.
Extra context: 'Psycho' is Red Velvet's most recent major release and 'Monster' was a recent subunit project with only Irene and her bandmate Seulgi.
DISCLAIMER ABOUT SOURCES: A multitude of claims are swirling around social media. Everything out there should be considered speculative/unsubstantiated unless it comes directly from an official or vetted source. As Mods all we can do is compile and summarize, but we are not investigators or journalists. Keep your wits about you!

2020.10.23 11:45 PrivacyEnjoyer My government now sells all the info about me to corporations, what should I do

The Russian government now may sell all the data from existing databases, which contain such info as passports, phone numbers, full names, health insurance numbers, home addresses and others. This is information that is stored in your online profile (you're pretty much forced to use the service, because it's the only way to register an appointment in hospital, get a passport and so on). I may be wrong, but they also could sell more private information like mobile phone movements (cellular triangulation), your searches and online habits from ISP (if provided) and Wi-Fi/BT mac addresses (A few days ago the govs announced a system that determines your actual position using bluetooth and wifi beacons). They have already been leaks of private information, it's possible to buy almost any information on citizens in darknet (only in russian, sorry). There is no option to reject the access to your data, you don't even have to sign any agreement or paper. The question is what could I do to prevent this or to minimize the leaked data? Which organizations could I contact?

Factory-figure

The state will share the data of citizens with business

Big data market participants want to integrate the ecosystems of private companies with government information systems (GIS) and are willing to pay for access to government data. The Ministry of Digital Affairs looks at the initiative positively and plans to create a state "data factory" with the help of which businesses can quickly access information. The problem, according to experts, may be the increased risk of leaks.

The Big Data Association (ADB), following the meeting on October 20, sent a resolution to the government with a request to develop a "roadmap" for the development of electronic interaction between the state and business; Kommersant has a copy of the document. Members of the ADB, it follows from it, ask the government to facilitate business access to GIS, information resources and registries, which will allow integrating, for example, the portal of public services with the ecosystems of large companies, as well as solving regulatory problems associated with the use of data from GIS. In addition, the ADB asks to take into account the opinion of the business when changes in the processes of providing electronic public services. The association proposes to establish cooperation based on SLA (quality level agreement).

The ADB includes Yandex, Mail.Ru Group, Sberbank, Gazprombank, Tinkoff-Bank, Qiwi, MTS, MegaFon, Vimpelcom, Rostelecom, oneFactor.

“An agreement is signed between the state department and the organization, according to which the formats of interaction in a machine-readable form, the speed of response to the request, the composition of the transmitted data, and technical protocols of data exchange are determined. There is a charge for the level of service. This is a mutually beneficial partnership between the state and business and the mutual development of ecosystems, ”said the president of ADB Anna Serebryanikova, adding that businesses are now interested in simplifying access to data accumulated by the state.

Businesses are now having trouble accessing such data.

Levan Shalamberidze, head of Yandex's business development project service, gives an example: the company is unable to receive up-to-date information about real estate from Rosreestr, as well as data on the movement of public transport in cities. Officials in municipalities, in response to a request to provide this data, as a rule, either refuse, or want in return to receive commercial products of Yandex for free, Mr. Shalamberidze said.
The Ministry of Digital Industry sees a problem and plans to create a "state data factory" - a mechanism through which businesses can access GIS. “In our understanding, this is not just a technological platform, but a set of rules and methodology for preparing for the provision of such information, as well as uniform requirements for the technological stack for working with this data,” says Oleg Kachanov, deputy head of the Ministry of Digital Science. The press service of the Ministry of Finance added that there is already an understanding of the "architecture of interaction with business". We are talking about providing businesses, including trusted government services that can be used on external commercial sites. "The task of the state is to open the infrastructure of e-government to the outside", - explained the representative of the Ministry of Digital Science.

The state has an unconditional monopoly on many data and mechanisms of interaction with citizens, for example, it is data on legal entities or payments of citizens to the budget, says Ivan Begtin, director of ANO Information Culture, head of the Association of Data Market Participants.

Business perceives government data as free, but at the same time does not see an opportunity to collect such volumes of information on their own - it would be very expensive, says Sergei Kudryashov, partner of the Deloitte risk management department. “Any business in the b2c segment can effectively use them both in terms of integration and in terms of tracking the consumer characteristics of the population. For example, on the store's website, you can automatically verify in the system of public services. Thus, the store receives the most complete data about its customer, "says Mr. Kudryashov. However, he adds, with such interaction, the risks of data leakage and their unfair use increase seriously.

2020.10.23 11:04 femkuhhhh (F4A) Slice of life post-Covid romance [longterm]

Hi everyone!
I am looking for an RP partner for a slice of life RP! Please read all of my post before responding (:
But first, let me introduce myself! My name is Femke, I am 23 years old and I live in the Netherlands. English is not my first language, but I don't think it'll be a huge problem. Of course, there will be the occasional mistake, but I guess everyone makes mistakes, right? Anyways, I don't mind where you're from. My timezone is Central European, but I don't mind if you live in another timezone or also don't speak English as your main language. I have been RP'ing ever since I was 11 years old, but I don't mind if you're new to RP'ing. Just let me know and I'm sure we can figure it out. I write at least 300 words per post, but usually more than that. I guess that makes me Semi-lit/lit? I'd like it if you also wrote at least 300 words per post.
Anyways, enough about me. Let's talk about my RP idea!
My idea was to skip forward into the (hopefully near) future. It's the second month there hasn't been a single Covid-19 case in the world. Shops are opening up, face masks are not required anymore, social distancing isn't top priority. We're going back to normal. Or, the new normal at least. How will your character respond to be able to go on dates? Or to go on holiday in Spain? Our characters meet/ have met online, but have never met each other in real life. They know each other only by what they have seen through a screen. Maybe they live in different countries? They decide to meet up (and hope it's not a catfish) to get to know the other person in real life.
I don't mind playing a boy, girl or non-binary and I also don't mind which one of those you want to play. I want this to be an LGBT+ friendly RP. So all combinations are welcome. Please let me know you've read all of this, by mentioning "purple" in your reply.
Anyways, I will just recap everything I said and add a little extra, because I'm noticing it's a bit all over the place:
Oh wait, I almost forgot the medium! I don't have a discord and I'm afraid if I make one, I won't check often enough to see if you responded. I don't want to ghost you, so that's why I chose email as my medium. But google docs, whatsapp or reddit is also fine. And if you're an ideal candidate, but you only rp on discord, then please teach me how it works (and email me if I accidentally ghost you). I'd like to get to know you through OOC as well. That's important to me.
I think that's it! Please let me know if you have any questions and hit me up if you wanna RP with me! Give me some ideas for the RP, let me know why you want to RP with me.

2020.10.23 09:52 ambipurestrawberry I have to say it out loud or I’m going to lose my goddamn mind.

I’ve put on weight in the past eight or nine months we’ve been stuck at home. Of course my eating disorder is out of control, I eat my feelings and stress away so that’s what I’ve been doing ever since everything shut down.
We’ve had online classes and regular work and I’ve surprisingly managed to make it happen and been steady with academics but I haven’t stepped out of the house, I haven’t been exercising or taking care of my fitness.
My BPD has worsened, mental health gone for a toss and I seem to have given up some how. I have just been rotting away, barely getting out of bed or barely existing, it feels like.
All this adds to why it’s okay if you don’t like me anymore/if you won’t like me anymore when you get back and I meet you (maybe) on your birthday.
You are allowed to not like me anymore.
I feel like you pity me and continue staying with me. I hope that isn’t the case. I don’t want your pity and I don’t want you to feel sorry for me because I’m not a victim I’m just a pathetic excuse of a human being. So I’m not worth that pity or empathy.
You can stop being with me or communicating with me or calling me your girlfriend if you have figured out that you don’t really like me that much after one year as friends and nine months of dating.
Quarantine and time alone brings things into perspective for everyone.
You have the right to, you know?
And I am surprised that you haven’t already felt that. I know how I am and you deserve better, I think you know that too.
I just hope you aren’t doing this, being my friend, letting me into your life and tolerating me because you feel sorry for me. I hope you’re doing it because you actually want to.
I know you aren’t a person to force yourself into anything but I still can’t help but feel like you’re doing this because you feel sorry for me and not because there’s any affection or fondness.
Why would there be? I’m not worth that.

2020.10.23 09:49 lavascamp Tarkov Stutter Removal and Optimization Guide 12.8!

So Tarkov is not the most properly optimized game... this we all know. I have looked all over for a proper guide to help remove stutters but nothing so far seemed either helpful or up to date. Recently I had a bad case of stutters and literally rebuilt my entire pc to find the problem (insane I know). On my journey to become stutter free I figured I would make a log/guide with everything I did to help rid myself of this disease. I will post my PC specs at the bottom for others to have a baseline of where my system is. The process takes some time but for me was well worth it and I have basically removes my stutters altogether. I hope this can help out a few people at least. So here we go.
Updated tweaks I forgot to include below:
My pc specs-
8700k 5.0ghz OC
3080 FE
32gb 3200mhz ram
Adata sx8200 M.2 drive for OS and games.
Liquid cooling for CPU
High airflow case (Lancool 2 mesh)
1440p 144hz G-Sync monitor.
*Nvidia drivers https://www.nvidia.com/en-gb/geforce/drivers/
*DDU https://www.guru3d.com/files-details/display-driver-uninstaller-download.html
If anyone has anything to add please do and I will include it in this post. I made this post out of my frustration and love for Tarkov and felt that no one else had to suffer like I and MANY others have. I tried to cover as many bases as I could. Feel free to ask any questions as well and good luck out there comrades.
