2023.04.01 13:15 Responsible_Dig3428 Getting accepted as a Scottish student without a flag

Hi, basically what the title says. I’m a Scottish student at a relatively high achieving state high school and my parents are both university graduates. Going out of Scotland for uni is out of the question for me as it’s too expensive so I will hopefully, if accepted, be going to university in Scotland.
With the Edinburgh university flagging results (only students with flags, meaning they came from disadvantaged backgrounds, being young carers or living in a certain low income postcode were accepted into a Law course at Edinburgh. No other non-fee paying Scottish students were accepted) I’m really worried about being able to get into university.
I absolutely agree with more room and opportunities being made for people who are disadvantaged. The education system is deeply inequitable. It’s just that I’m not a person who can afford to just go elsewhere or take courses outwith school and I’m really worried about being accepted or how to increase my chances of being accepted as a non-fee payer. St Andrews is absolutely my top choice for my subject, alongside Edinburgh. I’m a Scottish student who has been privileged in many ways with the state school I get to go to and the education level of my parents, but we do not have the money to put me on summer school courses or apply outside of Scotland where I get free university. I also don’t qualify for the Sutton Trust summer school or anything like that and I’m a bit worried after seeing someone on reddit say that the summer school leaders there states that they really pushed for the summer school attendees to be accepted. I’m a high achiever in school (straight As predicted for my Highers, taking 4 advanced Highers next year, involved in clubs and interested in my subject outwith school) but I‘m scared this won’t be enough.
I guess I’m just looking for advice, is this something to be worried about as a Scottish student? I’m interested in International Relations, and if there’s any out of school online courses, books or certificates IR students could recommend I could get in involved in to boost my chances of getting accepted when I send out my applications this year that would be so appreciated.
Thank you very much.

2023.04.01 12:54 MrBushido56 Big mom is from sorbet kingdom

Big mom is from sorbet kingdom
I believe big mom is from sorbet and here’s why.
sorbet kingdom is a country that used to be unaffiliated with the world government and kuma used to be king of it but before kuma I believe big moms family were the monarchy of the island.
big mom was abandoned on elbaf when she was 5 years old.
however she wasn’t abandoned maliciously.
its easy to guess why she was abandoned as she likely went on a hunger pang rampage and brought ruined to the island.
I believe her parents were the king and queen of sorbet.
first off sorbet and wci share a theme, most of the islands of totland are given desert themes.
sorbet is a type of pink ice cream and can also be an ice cream cake.
and Bm mother also looks familiar
which means the queen dowager bonney turned into is big moms mother ?
so then what happened in between ?
I believe that in her rampage big mom tore the country apart
causing so much damage that it was never able to recover losing its economy and placement in the world government. the people rebelled and the king and queen were forced to leave their daughter on elbaf.
The country was left in ruin leading gangs to take over the Island and the remnants of the Charlotte family were forced to go into hiding and that is shown by bonney Who is a relative to big mom I bet.
Bonney while fed looks scruffy and poor and this was probably the first proper meal she had in a long time given to her by her adopted father kuma.
Bonney and linlin share some traits. The pink hair, mood swings tendency to swear vengeance on those who wrong them, gluttony and even their ships.
or maybe she was a clone of big mom which could explain Akainu being scared that bonney was free in the world
If Bonney has the potential to reach big moms level then that is not a good thing for the government.
so what happened is the kingdom fell in ruin and kuma came along united the people and took over becoming their king and bringing peace and stability back to the kingdom. Perhaps the government had issue with this as word got out on how kuma was able to save his kingdom without the wg aid which could set a bad example for the wg, he was also one of the earliest countries to align with dragonand worst off was probably the reveal that kuma was a former slave they owned who escaped them. so they framed him as a corrupt king and organised a revolt ruining the kingdom yet again and at some point 12+ years ago kuma fled to become a revolutionary soldier as he was present at the grey terminal fire 12 years ago
after kuma was forced to flee to fight in a war to stop this from happening to others he was forced to leave Bonney behind the girl he took in when he came across her in egghead island.
Bonney is from egghead island as she has memories of the place and how holograms work.
however it’s clear she hasn’t been there for a long time because Bonney didn’t know who atlas was.
Bonney was cloned by vegapunk from the dna of big mom probably stollen from the original stussy as stussy is a clone of another rocks crew mate. Kuma came to egghead for some reason. Perhaps there was a problem on sorbet that only vegapunk could help with perhaps he was sent over on behalf of the RA but he was there and that’s when he met Bonney and for some reason adopted her.
he brought her home to the south blue and not long after was framed and over thrown by cp9.
for whatever reason Bonney and kuma were separated and he joined the RA.
bonney fell into poverty not being able to eat or have decent clothing and met eustass Kid.
I believe kid is from sorbet as well as its noted he’s from the south blue.
and odd thing to include if you ask me.
kid is from a certain island in the south blue oda didn’t give us a name which is odd maybe he’s saving it for later, all we know was that kid was a gang leader and owned one of the four territories the other leaders were killer heat and wire.
kid’s friend and a love Interest for him and killer was killed by the top gang who saw themselves as royalty.
kid killer heat and wire united under kid and led a assault on this gang and taking over all of the island under his rule.
However it’s never hinted at that kid owns an island in the south blue meaning he probably abandoned it or it was taken from him.
back in sabaody kid gave a speech about the corruption of the wg which felt like it came from a personal place.
I believe the ruling gang who acted like royalty was the Charlotte family.
after kuma fell the wg let sorbet fall into ruin yet again just to set an example then when kid took over the wg did the same thing they did with kuma and framed him as a man who kills civilians came in and chased kid killer heat and wire away from the country thus becoming pirates.
bonney I believe was taken in by kid and became a fraction leader of a gang herself but once the wg once again came in and took her life away she was either separated from kid or she left kid to follow her own path on revenge and getting kuma back while kid went off to be pirate king.
could Bonney and kid have a past together ?

2023.04.01 12:53 RevolutionaryFocus23 my parents are getting divorced and it’s messy, advice ?

my parents (44f, 43m) are getting divorced and my mom is making it incredibly difficult for everyone. also i’m apologizing in advance is 5:30am and i haven’t slept so it’s not gonna be worded the best this is also my first post i didn’t know where else to go :,)
i (19f) have two siblings (18f and 13m) my sister is heavily autistic and my brother is a trouble maker, he’s already been arrested before. my parents started their divorce because my mom cheated on my dad right after i graduated high school. now my family has never been the picture perfect family but it was okay, now my dad lives in california (we live in florida for context) he originally moved because of a job offer he couldn’t pass up, he was only supposed to be there for three months but decided to stay indefinitely. i used to be really close to my mom but after i found out how my dad found everything out i lost all respect for her .
(i apologize for all the details but i have no one else to tell, she sent nudes to someone and ended up getting black mailed out of 500 dollars she took from my dad) now my mom is acting like she’s 20 and has no responsibilities, my dad pays for everything, the house in fl, his rv in cali, groceries for my siblings and i because my mom refuses, the power, water, wifi, literally everything. she has a nice car and doesn’t even pay for that, though she’s supposed to. i’ve only called her out on this once, i told her she’s acting like she figured out 20 years too late she didn’t want kids. she’s always at her boyfriends house. she’s never home anymore, and when she is she only is for the night and is gone in the morning. my dad is constantly upset because he hates that my siblings and i have to go through this.
he’s offered for me to move in with him in cali so i have better options college wise and i’m seriously considering it. my only issue is my life here, i have a long term bf i’m very serious about and my best friend of 5 years i don’t know if i could live without. i hate living with my mom but she won’t let me get my license, she won’t let me get a job, so i can’t even save up to move out because she doesn’t want me to leave and lose her free babysitter. on the days i don’t see my bf i rot in my room and play video games. i don’t know what to do, i’m so stressed i really could use some advice. i’ll answer any questions, thank you for reading this i hope you have a nice day/night

2023.04.01 12:48 TheFallenWater AITA for not wanting to talk (and connect) with my family?

Before beginning this whole text of a heckhole, I want to mention: I am aware that I am the bad guy to an extent.
I think I want to start this whole ordeal from the beginning. I (20 F) am a second-year university student, studying an asian language. I was born in the capital city of our country and most of the closest maternal family members live there as well. Due to my paternal family living 2,5 hours away, and my father wanting to help them out, we moved to the countryside where my brother (18) was born.
I remember that around the time my brother was about to be born, I think I felt neglected and there are stories about me getting jelous over stuff with him, which also continued well into our teenager years. That's not particularly important, but I wanted to mention this, because the feeling of jelousy also came from the neglect that I might have gotten from my parents. My father wanted to have kids but he didn't really tend to us physically, nor mentally. I understand that there are people who just can't deal with kids and their world, the way they keep talking etc. Around the time my brother was born, my father went abroad to work there, and continued to come home every weekend. Due to the language barrier, which he continuously tried to close, he didn't have much of a patience. My mother had a very deep depression after my brother was born, which came down to me, a very outspoken little girl being quite annoying. My first trauma might have come from that, and also, my father didn't even try to help my mother get out of depression as far as I'm concerned, only my maternal parents (who moved with us to the countryside) were taking care of her.
Either way, I always felt that my brother got everything he asked for, while I always had to work really hard and even then I was always reprimanded that I have to take care of my brother while our parents are away (me 5-8, my brother 3-6), have to grow up, have responsibility towards my actions. Due to this I always felt like I wasn't really able to understand and get into the fun groups of my peers.
Backing up a bit, we had the old school discipline, slaps sometimes, verbal abuse sometimes, but the main things that I remember are stuff like: I was around 4-7 and wanted to play with my father. He said no multiple times but I really just wanted to connect with him and play. After maybe the 3-6th no, he got really mad and he shouted at me to get out he didn't want to play. Another time was when my mother asked me to give our dog (house with big garden, so dog lived outside) fresh water, but instructed me that the season being winter, I have to get the ice out with warm water and then give the dog a not so cold, nor warm water (maybe?). Either way, I did it the good way, however my father was outside the whole time, when I just finished changing the water he got there, misunderstood the whole situation and slapped me saying "what are you giving to the dog" or something along the line. A couple of seconds later I somehow communicated to him that I did it the right way so...yea.
I wanted to be fun to be with, to make lasting relationships, to be important to others. That's why at the age of 10-13 I got into a group of girls with whom I spent my time, etc, and also on whom I spent money. Foolish, yes, but I was desperate and wanted affection and appreciation. Someday I just realized that those same girls were whispering about me and blatantly looking at me while doing so. I became really sad and mad, which escalated into a shorter period of depression. (I have been going to therapy for another thing in the past 2 years, but recently my psychologist made me do a test about depression, so yes, the result came out pretty high which made me realise that even that event and before that I had some sort of depression, I/we just didn't realise that)
My mother was the first one to notice something was wrong and made my father (with whom I really didn't want to speak) give me a speech about how I should never think of myself as nothing and that I should just study and get better than everyone else. This was in 7th grade. That speech gave me motivation and my grades became much much better, I got into my desired high school, after which came uni. No, that experience of bullying was not in the least good, but without it I wouldn't be here, where I am.
Putting that aside, I wasn't really allowed to go to my classmates' parties etc, but I was almost fine with these during primary school. Getting into high school, I became friends with two groups of girls and I really enjoyed my time there. However my private life, my parents relationship to be precise, got worse. They argued a lot and in 10th grade, one night I was going to shower, my brother was locked up in his room, while our parents were arguing in the kitchen. I was already crying but I suddenly heard a thud, picked up a towel and finally went out to a scene where my mother was sitting, crying, my father standing next to her, one of his hands holding hers, the other one just up in the air as if trying to hit. I shouted to stop, my brother rushed out of his room the same time I did from the bathroom. It took a couple of seconds but my father finally looked at us and I swear I could see a kind of cloud getting out of his eyes. I mean I almost saw the rage cloud... I don't remember what exactly happened after that but that was one of the scariest things I have ever witnessed in real life.
Another major thing before getting into the present is that, (I am a summer child) I was 16, when 5 of us, all girls thought about going to the beach for one day. There's a lake around 1-2 hours away with train, we would have just gone for 6 hours at most. I asked my mom (nail artist) and her client where it would be allright to go, since out of 5 of us, it was only my father who maybe wouldn't have allowed me to go. My mother actually wanted to rush me out and just go, she was so happy haha. So everything was set, now I just had to call my father up and ask him so I did. He said that "I know you are a cool, strong girl, I believe in you but I think we should wait until you are 17" (literally 1,5 month away. I said okay, but later he said no again. I got over it pretty quickly but after about a month my mother told me that he actually called her up how it would be bad, what if I got a boyfriend, got pregnant and ruined my whole career and life, etc. She has been fuming for a while, but after knowing this, I immediately became even more reluctant of wanting to just not talk, interact with my father in any sort of way. Basically not even be near him. Nothing.
Fast forward, it was the week of exams, I got sick, so couldn't attend the math exam, so I had panic attacks wich stayed (and stay) with me for a long time after that. My father basically didn't even care, thought it was nothing, etc. But in the end, I graduated, it was all fine.
I moved to the capital for my studies and finally felt... Alive? Definitely a bit safer and much free than before. Like a dog finally getting out of leash haha
Depression and anxiety have been with me since childhood, but this time it got the best of me so the first semester of uni is the one I'm not very proud of. Didn't attend much of the classes, didn't study, and so on.
Now I'm in my fourth semester, my parents decided on buying an apartment near a bigger train station so that me and 2 other girls could live here. Since it's not yet complete, only I live here, but even though I live near the station, even the university is 30 minutes of transportation away, I do not under any circumstances want to go home. I'm an introvert, to be honest, I don't even have the motivation and energy to go to university sometimes. I do go, and I enjoy it very much, but I feel like I'm a huge failure of a human, can't study, I'm not fun to be with and so on. The exams, the stuff we have to learn and the homeworks are just so much I can barely keep up. Finally I managed to create a fairly good schedule when to do homeworks, relax a bit etc, but all I care about is the university with the homeworks because that's everything I have energy for.
I forget calling my parents, and to be honest, I don't want to talk with them because i feel like if I do, I always get back into the controlled situation. I get nervous, and even with my mother and brother I get very awkward.
To sum it up, I didn't have a normal childhood, always had to take responsibility and my subconscious just wants to live through that phase now. I want to be free, call my relatives when I feel I have enough energy for them and aside from that, just live life. But this "not even having a conversation" situation is why my parents say I'm a brat, unfaithful and so on. Yes, I have been brat like for a long time, that is true.
(Sorry for the long story!!)

2023.04.01 12:47 bdrmlk In Awe of My First Post on this Sub Compared to My Life Today

Wow. I was just going through my profile and found that my first post was on this thread 3 years ago. Detailing how frustrated I was with myself and my shame, from growing up in poverty and trying to navigate college surrounded by students with much more well off backgrounds than my own. I just wanted to give you all an update.
I’ve actually been in awe this past week by how much my life has changed. I graduated school with honors on full scholarship. I gained experience as a lab director, vaccine specialist, and COVID-19 research team lead all while in school. I became so comfortable balancing my part time warehouse job with my internships, school, and research that once I graduated and began working full time, I didn’t know what to do with myself! So while I had a full time job in a field I love, in my free time I got my bartending license, and started bartending as a hobby. ( I guess as someone who grew up poor, I had a hard time having a hobby that didn’t support me in some way.) For the last year since I’ve graduated, I’ve been working about 80 hours a week, which felt like nothing compared to college. With my two jobs, I was making 6 figures.
In high school I busted my ass at my part time job to save up $500 cash to buy my first car. It was a death trap that would shut off while driving.
This past week I used my excellent credit score, savings, and phenomenal haggling skills to purchase a BRAND NEW car. A 2023. Every day I sit in my car and I can’t even believe it’s mine.
Growing up my grandparents adopted me from a foster home when they really couldn’t afford another child. I always felt so guilty for the financial burden I put on them.
Over the last year or so my grandfather who raised me was diagnosed with lung cancer. I picked up extra bartending shifts and began paying for my grandparents medications, food, bills, whatever they needed. I can finally take care of them. And my grandfather just went into remission this week.
And in the last couple of weeks I just accepted a new job in my field that pays nearly 6 figures on its own. I can quit bartending if I want to! Or not, and boost my savings even more.
I don’t mean to sound like I’m bragging, I am just in absolute awe at what my life has become. I never in a million years thought I would be this financially independent and successful, let alone just a year after graduating college.
I’m so, so grateful for where I am today and how far I’ve come. And I’m so grateful for how difficult my childhood was growing up poor, it taught me extremely valuable lessons.
My friends will see how hard I’m working and say “You’re crazy! How do you have that work ethic?” And I just kind of laugh to myself and think, compared to all the shit I’ve been through, this is easy.
Thank you for listening.

2023.04.01 12:29 BadlandBrawl Upcoming changes!

We have listened to all your feedback and have come up with some changes that we think will excite everyone!
Let's take a look..........

- If you lose at least 10 Brawls in a row, there is a chance your Clones will start a Revolution against the King. If this happens, you are taken to a special PvE Brawl, where the revolutionary Clones will battle against the Clones still loyal to you. If you lose the battle, your King will be dethroned and decapi... Umm, given a new haircut.
- If the revolution is successful, your Clones will organize into a democracy and they will hold an election to choose a new President. You will be unable to use the elected Clone in battles for as long as it acts as the President. There will be new elections each four years.
- Additionally, two democracies are unable to Brawl against each other. In the case that two democracies are matched against each other, neither President may sling any Clones to the arena.
- If you do not wish to transit to a democracy, you can reduce the chances of a Revolution happening by keeping your Clones well fed and well paid. Also, don't eat too much cake.

Badland Savings Bank
- The Badland Savings Bank will act as the new last Land after Inferno Night (this is absolutely in no way a social commentary about the position banks hold in the society), and only players who reach the Land are able to use its services.
- You can now apply for loans from the Badland Savings Bank to buy a new Tower or to upgrade it! You will have to pay a monthly interest to the Bank based on the size of your loan.
- You can deposit your Gold in the Bank and receive a modest yearly interest.

New mechanics based on Land and day cycle
Each Land now has unique features based on the environment and day cycle:
- Jungle: Clones might get lost, making them unable to participate in the Brawl
- Canyon: Dust storms might rise, obscuring the view and scratching the inside of the screen of your device
- Frozen: If you don't sling any Clones to the bridge for a while, your King/President might freeze over, preventing them from shooting arrows
- Inferno: You will have to keep you Clones cool by periodically dipping you device in water or by blowing to the screen
- Bank: There is a bank vault in the center of the bridge. Please do not rob it.
- Dawn: Your Clones will need some time to wake up before the Brawl, and will shower before they can begin. Please give them some privacy by turning off the screen.
- Noon: You can join your Clones for a tasty meal. Afterwards, you should rest.
- Dusk: You may need to turn on the flashlight in your device to help your Clones see the bridge in the darkening evening
- Night: Clones might start sleeping in the bridge if they feel too tired. Also, you'll have to pay them double salary for night work.

Rune color change
You can finally change the color of Runes. Your Clones will be happy to wear Runes matching their favorite colors!

The King/President has established a Tax Office that will collect 10 % of your Gold from every Egg to help fund the strive against the Replicants.

Clone changes

Carbon Neutrality
In an effort to make Badland Brawl carbon neutral by 2030, we've made the following changes to Clones:

- The gasoline motors in Bomb Golem and Doom Golem have been replaced with electric ones
- The excess heat from Bombs will be used to heat the Towers
- The lasers in Mecha Bunny and Laser Bunnies have been changed to more energy-efficient ones
- Magnet has been turned into a Legendary Clone, to reflect its new scarcity as most Magnets are required for building wind turbines
- Players are allowed to use at most one flying Clone per year
- Electromancer is removed from the list of Clones, as she will use her talents to generate clean, renewable energy
- Mind Tick is removed from the list of Clones and will be used to "educate" players about energy-saving methods, instead

A yet-to-be named Clone
- We want to release a new Clone without the word "Doom" in it, but we haven't figured out a name yet

Grand Trickster
- In addition to drawing Laser Bunnies out of his hat, he can now also pull coins from behind opponents' ears and make roses disappear

- Fixed a bug that caused her arms to look like tentacles
- Please stop posting screenshots about the bug, we have seen too many of them

Striker Man
- Unbeknownst to everyone, Striker Man has been dating Lumberjackie since the night of his graduation party from the Royal Artillery Academy, and they are now announcing their engagement! Consequently, they refuse to fight each other in a Brawl, and will hold hands and gaze into the horizon should they meet on the bridge.
- Check your Inbox for an invitation to the wedding on June 31st!

2023.04.01 12:20 sanriocore15 24[F4M] Central Java / Indonesia /Anywhere - I want you to be my muse,

and my sole subject of affection.
Anyways~ I hope that you are doing fine right now and if that's alright, may I have your attention for a second? Or well.. maybe a couple minutes?
How are you holding up? On my side, I'm taking it easy since I'm finally graduated and having some break trying not to do anything bizzare, I hope that you are doing fine right now and keep breathing ! Also if that's alright, may I have your attention for a second? I'm kidding it'll take longer than that so.. maybe a couple minutes? There is no age limit, but at least please be legal.
So, let me introduce myself as someone whom looking for an acquaintance with a genuine potential awesome individual with a pure soul and perhaps we will ended up rescuing dogs in the future together, we will never know if we never try, right? All I ask is that please be respectful towards each others and hopefully we can develop something meaningful for both of us during the process. My physical feature: 5 feet, dark brown eyes, black hair, bombshell body type, me:
Personally, I am that one "care too much" kind of person who is also have a soft spot for a skincare / self-care / skin wellness thing since I am a certified beauty advisor ( but my certificate is completely useless rn ) and unfortunately I have no one to apply this skill on besides myself lately, so if you ever wanted to be a volunteer then I'll accept you with an open arms ! There is no such thing as asking too much question about this topic, I'm glad to help (: Tell me your issues and I will try my best to find the best skincare solution for you.
Furthermore, I love to categorise myself as an old school soul who still believe in the power of a monogamy idea so if you're in a relationship or you're that someone who is in an open relationship, we can only be a platonic one ( this is a final call so there is no blurry line in between ). All that I can ask from you is to be honest about yourself/ your relationship status. I'm not looking for a "getaway car" or an unfinished past kind of thing. Also not looking for an encounter with an upset gf or partner along the way.
One of my good trait is that I never forgot to say please or sorry or thank you under a certain circumstances (: my type of personality is ENTP said the Myers-Briggs and I'm putting it out there because it does matter for some people. For my bad trait is that I can have an episode of a mental breakdown due to my BPD issue, but I try to do better now. Even though,a boss girl has her weak moment sometimes I mean I am also that Passenger Princess, but as long as we can be each others hypeman/woman then I think nothing is impossible! Also probably I should really stop put my heart of my sleeve though, it burns me so many time before. Three things that you must possess : honesty, loyalty, and integrity, in other words don't be a shady or a bigotry person.
IMPORTANT : I will leave the meet up plan to you when things require us to meet in real life. So if you're not in a position to travel abroad to where I am at, then please just ignore this and let's not waste eachother's time because I'm not looking for an online fling.
Whew, so is this the end? Yes.. this is the end of this blabber but also the beginning of our amazing acquaintance, can't wait to be wined and dined by you !
I am keen to discuss about any further information and get to know you though do mind the time difference (; which is GMT + 6:7 so feel free to respond this if I'm your cup of coffee, yeah I know it's supposed to be a tea but hey whatever floats our boats, right? P.S. still looking to meet you as long as this post existing on here.

2023.04.01 12:16 Daddyo5fan2010 Gap Year vs T100 school w/ T10 engineering program?

Basically, the situation is this. I've been accepted for CS at the T100 school and I really like it, but I feel like I could do a lot better. I feel like my freshman and sophomore year grades from high-school (GCSEs) are weighing my application down tremendously as a result of being predicted. My AS-Level grades are good though and I think I can perform extremely well for my A-Levels. (I am an international, but I'm considered out-of-state since I am a US Citizen.)
If I do take a gap year, I have a list of things in mind for what I want to do with my free-time, with more to come possibly. I want to get an internship at the software department of a company local to me, or even a startup. I want to do some form of research with a mentor and find a research project I am passionate about. I might retake the SAT, but I feel like a 1520 is high enough for top end colleges anyways. I also would probably join a few academic competitions to spice up my resume and to have a bit more fun with. Additionally, if I take a gap year, I would know exactly what to write on my common app as I'd be more informed.
Regardless, I've also considered a scenario where I don't get into any school over the course of the gap year, and to be honest, I feel like if I didn't get in anywhere and ended up going to this school or another school anywyas, I would be completely fine and I will have enjoyed the process of being able to stay with my family a little longer and having a long-term 'job'.
But, I do want to say that this school has some very good programs and job opportunities on the graduating end, which is awesome and it is convenient in terms of location.
The main question is, would the gap year and the A-Level grades negate the bad performance I had in my GCSEs? Or should I commit to my school and go to college there? Please help me out. Thanks!

2023.04.01 12:15 SwallowYourDreams Looking for: locally-run computer vision / image recognition AI to index photo library

I'm curious if something like what I'm about to describe already exists, and if the more knowledgeable people of this thread could point me towards a solution.
I'm looking for a piece of AI-based software that * runs locally on my Linux desktop machine * is free and open-source software * can index a large photo library and "recognise" people and things in it (i.e. it will group all pictures with Uncle Greg in it and allow me to provide the name "Uncle Sam" as a tag for all these pictures). * allows me to search the indexed photo library, e.g. turn up all photos that have the tag "Uncle Greg" and "birthday cake".
The latter criterion is negligible; if I have an index of all photos with tags, I can build a search functionality myself.
I am aware that trying to run AI models on a normal desktop machine will lead to bottlenecks. I have, however, found that Stable Diffusion runs reasonably well on my machine if configured correctly, and I don't mind this taking a long time if it leads to the desired results.

2023.04.01 12:11 Philipaja [26/M] looking for a girl

Hello, I'm a 26 boy, tall 1,80 with slim body and I'd like to find a girl to speak a bit and see how it ends... I'm from Italy but I would prefer to keep it something online at the moment but if we are close and we get along we could also consider to meet in the future.
A little bit about me: I'm shy and a bit unconfident, I graduated but I'm considering to continue studying as finding a job seems really hard nowdays. I like playing chess but also some shitty games on pc, going to the sea when I have the chance and hang out and drink with friends.
About the "kinky" part I'm more on the submissive side but I can try to switch sometimes if you like that. I'm a big fan of joi and being controlled in general and I'm open to try new things as I'm pretty new to this, I had very few and shorts experiences online but I liked it a lot so far.
I would prefer moving on discord or skype so feel free to text me if you may be interested :)
(please answer to this only if you are a real girl)

2023.04.01 12:04 Global_Tree_Careers What should not be included in your Resume?

What should not be included in your Resume?
Your resume is often the first point of contact between you and a potential employer. It is a crucial document that can make or break your chances of landing an interview. While it's essential to highlight your accomplishments, skills, and experience in your resume, it's equally important to be mindful of what not to include in your resume.
Here are some things that you should avoid including in your resume!

1. Personal Information:

Your resume should be a professional document and not an opportunity to share personal information. It's essential to include your name, contact information, and location, but avoid adding your marital status, date of birth, social security number, or any other personal information that may lead to bias or discrimination.

2. Irrelevant Experience:

You may have a lot of experience in various fields, but it's important to tailor your resume to the job you're applying for. Including irrelevant experience may confuse the hiring manager and make it difficult for them to see how you're a good fit for the position.

3. Salary Information:

Your resume is not the place to discuss salary expectations or disclose your current or previous salary. This information can be shared during the interview process, but it's not appropriate to include it in your resume.

4. Hobbies or Personal Interests:

While it's good to have hobbies and interests, they don't belong in your resume. Unless they're directly related to the job, leave them out. You can also look up for certain Resume/CV writing tips to understand the pattern.

5. Unprofessional Email Address:

Your email address should be professional and reflect your name or the name of your business. Avoid using email addresses that are unprofessional or inappropriate.

6. Typos and Grammatical Errors:

Your resume should be error-free. Typos and grammatical errors can make you look unprofessional and careless. Take the time to proofread your resume thoroughly or consider asking someone else to review it for you.

7. References:

Including references in your resume is unnecessary. Most hiring managers will ask for references if and when they need them. Instead, use the space on your resume to highlight your skills and experience.

8. Photos:

Unless you're applying for a modeling or acting job, including a photo in your resume is unnecessary and may lead to bias or discrimination.

9. Lies:

Never include false information or exaggerate your experience or skills in your resume. It's unethical and can have serious consequences.

10. Negative Comments:

Your resume should focus on your positive attributes and accomplishments. Avoid including negative comments about your previous employer, co-workers, or clients. Negative comments can make you appear unprofessional and difficult to work with.
(Read More: Tips for writing the best academic resume for graduation)

11. Unrelated Certifications:

While certifications can be impressive, they should be relevant to the job you're applying for. Including certifications that are unrelated to the job may lead the hiring manager to question your focus and qualifications.

12. Outdated Skills or Software:

Including outdated skills or software can make you look outdated as a candidate. Make sure to review your resume and update any outdated information or skills with the latest tools or technologies in your field.
In conclusion, your resume is your chance to showcase your skills, experience, and accomplishments to potential employers. By avoiding the above mistakes, you'll increase your chances of standing out from the crowd and landing the job of your dreams.

2023.04.01 11:31 Buffyfanatic1 Dead beat mom decides to make demands from me

My childhood was an absolute shit show that I'm still dealing with the ramifications from today. My parents divorced when I was barely 2 years old. My father was VERY abusive and was in and out of jail and homelessness my whole life. When I was 6, my mom who was a once a month on the weekends parent (she never showed up to the custody hearings so the judge gave custody to my abusive dad) decided she couldn't be a mother anymore, married another man, moved states, and had another child that she loved enough to raise.
I only saw my bio mother about 5 times in my entire childhood. I was raised by my abusive father and my grandma until he OD'd when I was 17. My mom didn't want to go to the courts to get custody and neither did my grandma since i was a senior in high school so CPS decided to just let me keep living with my hrandma until i graduated. So, I became a legal orphan. I was able to go to college for free due to being an orphan and being in poverty. I eventually joined the military, moved out of my shit hole state, got married, and have been living a great life ever since.
I went about 7 years without speaking with my bio mom on the phone or in person. Randomly, about 2 years ago, when I went back to my home state to visit my dad's side of the family (I hadn't seen them in over 3 years. I avoid going home often because everyone but me are either druggie or living in poverty so they're always harassing my husband and I for money, favors, etc while also yelling at me for having the audacity to fight my way out of poverty and make a life for myself)
She called me and had apparently moved back to my home state with my half-sister several years ago, and I had no idea. She begged me to meet her in person, where she then spent 2 hours sobbing about how sorry she is for abandoning me to my abusive father and how she regrets it every day. I tentatively agreed to forgive her and slowly build a relationship. She was happy with her at first but is now upset that I treat her now as some distant aunt instead of having a mother daughter relationship. To be honest, we will never have a mother daughter relationship. If she wanted one, she should've raised me.
Anyway, my half-sister also decided to reach out to me and create a relationship. We talk all the time and have become close. The last time I went home to visit, we went out to eat, and she asked me what the plan was for mom once she gets too old to take care of herself. I said whatever she decides to do, I'll emotionally support her for her decision. She asked what I meant, and I said I have zero plans to financially or physically help my mother in any way. She didn't raise me. She doesn't get the joy of having her oldest daughter take care of her in her old age.
My half-sister was very upset with me and ran and told my mom. Who then decided to start blowing up my phone, saying that she apologized and is trying, but that doesn't mean that I can abandon her in her time of need. I just laughed and hung up the phone. My husband fucking hates her and only puts up with her at all because of me.
I don't know where this audacity is coming from. I don't know her and she doesn't know me but because I have more money and no kids, she thinks I should be the one to house and help her. Nope. Not happening.

2023.04.01 11:01 redditsurfer42 ISU Housing

Hello everyone! I'm a prospective international graduate student at Iowa State University. I'm starting to research housing options for the upcoming semester and I'm wondering which would be a better choice - on-campus SUV or off-campus housing options. I'd love to hear from those who have experience with either or both.
Location and safety is important to me, as I want to be within a reasonable distance from my classes and campus facilities. Cost is another concern, and I want to make sure that I'm getting the best value for my money.
If you are also searching for a roommate and living space, or have any leads, please feel free to contact me.
If anyone has any experiences, insights, or advice to share, I would greatly appreciate it! Thank you in advance for your help.

2023.04.01 10:38 Pindown_Adfhen Good afternoon. I need an arrays of insights

To give an initial context, I am a graduating HUMSS student. I've applied to two state universities so far, one being PUP and the other being a school in southern Luzon. It may be shallow, but my main aim is to achieve financial stability. In PUP, my first and second choices were BSIT and BSCS, but unfortunately, they have a strict regulation with regard to strand-program alignment, so it wouldn't be possible for me to land on those two programs. I'm left with either political science or journalism. Here's the curveball: There's a stigma that I've come to believe: a degree in the arts won't favor you with a decent job, let alone a high-paying one in that regard. (Feel free to prove me wrong.)
Moving on to the other tertiary school, they have no problem if your strand doesn't align with your chosen program, let alone giving you bridging units to be taken. My choices here are primarily BSIT, followed by a halfhearted decision of BAP.
The thing is, I'm unsure whether to choose PUP because it has a great and well-known reputation, and surely most companies prefer people who graduated from this educational institution. Studying at PUP is a bliss, but the thought of not getting my Paramount program strikes me; on the contrary, the other state university provides me with a good foothold and a variety of opportunities considering that it allows me to choose the program where my heart lies.(med'yo exaggerated)
Sorry for the unsolicited inquiries. The bottom line here is that if I ever did decide to take art degrees on PUP (i.e., BAPS or BAJ), would it still land me on a job that gives a decent paycheck? Or should I go for the latter and walk into my Paramount choice (BSIT)?

2023.04.01 09:45 whisp96 24M Wondering what's next

Birthday is coming up, I'm doing some reflection, and thought I'd post here.
My path so far: graduated computer science, always chased the A's since entering catholic school, at 11 years old. Before graduating high school, I made a good chunk of YouTube vids, but entering college, I stopped because 1. I wouldn't have the time or setup, 2. I convinced myself it wasn't worth doing, it was time to to pursue something for money and a career that would secure my future.
I got a coding job after college, did it for one year, then quit. I was unemployed for almost a year, I felt like the engines of my life plane turned off for the first time, mid air. I didn't know where to go, what I wanted, I was really lost.
Now, I have job sitting in a building 24 hrs a week, doing almost nothing for waaaaay less money, but I pay my bills, got a place with gf, and I'm happy and pretty stress free. I'm also working on my vids again, and have made that my top priority in my life.
I guess the reason why I'm posting is, I'm not sure how long I can keep this lifestyle up. I may want to move soon, and was thinking of switching jobs/professions again. Anyone got recommendations, or maybe somewhere else to ask questions? I just need something to pay the bills, my main issue is avoiding working over 35 hours a week(for money/job, not counting hobbies), which is hard to manage in this world.
Thanks for any help

PS Birthday is in 2 days, I'm actually 23

2023.04.01 09:37 icedcofees Going to college while working full time? (27)

Hope this is the right sub. I'm considering going to college to make more money. I'm worried about my schedule though. I work 5 - 5, 4 - 5, 5 - 4. So basically 5 days on and 5 days off 6pm - 6am. I have a dog and 2 cats. My dog takes up a considerable amount of time. I am trying to apply to positions in our company that work 8 hour shifts but I'm not hearing anything back. I am looking into a dog walker now. I'm currently working as a vaccine engineering technician at a large pharmaceutical company. I like the work but love/hate the schedule.
Local community college will be free with a government program. University will be free with tuition reimbursement. I'm thinking about going to the community college for Chemical Technology AAS. These are the courses:
If I go to the university I'd be interested in biochemistry but not rushing to get there.
I don't remember ever working in high school. I have no memory of education. I'm worried I won't be able to handle this. I had an accident which caused memory loss. I also dated someone all throughout highschool and I was only focused on that. I'm pretty sure I graduated with the lowest GPA acceptable.
Anyone with a similar story? How are you doing in school?
