A coronavirus is one of a number of viruses that cause diseases in mammals and birds. In humans, the viruses cause respiratory infections, including the common cold, which are typically mild, though rarer forms such as SARS, MERS and 2019-nCoV can be lethal. Symptoms vary in other species: in chickens, they cause an upper respiratory disease, while in cows and pigs coronaviruses cause diarrhea. There are no vaccines or antiviral drugs to prevent or treat human coronavirus infections.

2023.06.08 10:40 guaranapapi am I a good singer? I feel like no one really likes my voice
hey what’s up yall…
honestly i like singing and i can vibe to my own songs sometimes but i feel like the reaction i get from people i know is not that good. well, actually i get really mixed reactions. the only people who actually listen to my stuff are the people in my life that would support me no matter what so idk if i can trust it yk?
i feel like most people’s reaction to my music is just “oh okay, it’s cool that you sing” but never really “wow you sing well”.
i know i’m not the best singer out there but i like to think of myself as alright. i just wanna know if i’m embarrassing myself by releasing these songs.
i’d appreciate any input

Article in Dutch
De Lie returns in Tour de Wallonie: "But I'm not ruling out the Belgian Championships either"
The Bull of Lescheret may almost be released again. Arnaud De Lie is still recovering after his fall in the Four Days of Dunkirk, but did announce today that he will make his comeback in the Tour de Wallonie at the end of July. And he is also thinking of ways to avoid another fall: "Maybe now I'll sprint like Van Aert," he said.
The bitter pill for Arnaud De Lie and Lotto-Dstny is steadily taking on a sweet taste again. After his fall in the Four Days of Dunkirk, Arnaud De Lie was out of contention for a while with a broken collarbone, but his return is in sight.
Today, the Walloon rider announced that he will be at the start of the Tour de Wallonie on July 22. "That's a month and a half away, but it's a race I love. There are a lot of sprint opportunities and it is the tour of my region," he said.
In the meantime, the young rider will go on altitude training from June 20 to July 20. "I have to learn that too," he said of it. "Every rider does it and everyone gets better from it."
The Lie also looked back on the crash that caused him to have to put his bike aside for a while. "The rider in front of me made a mistake. I couldn't avoid him anymore."
"Afterwards, he was apparently still laughing about the fact that I couldn't finish. I won't name names, but you don't do something like that," De Lie was still sharp for the culprit.
In any case, he is not afraid of another fall. But he will be looking for a new way to sprint.
"Tom Steels was talking to Maxime Monfort about my fall. He says I still have to look for the way to sprint that best suits me."
"Maybe I'll start sprinting like Van Aert. He's always in the first five positions at 3 or 4 kilometers from the line."
Lie is looking forward to the future with high hopes. Even an earlier comeback at the BK is still a possibility. "I'm not ruling out the BK," he says.
"But being at the start 100% will be very difficult. Maybe I'm just competing for a while. That will be good for morale anyway. And I can also possibly be of service to Milan Menten."
The Bull of Lescheret does still make a goal of the European Championships in the Netherlands. "I've already been in contact with national coach Sven Vanthourenhout about that," he stated. "The course around the VAM mountain suits me, so there's a good chance I'll go."
Maybe De Lie can cross the line there again with his famous bull celebration.

2023.06.08 10:38 ams365 Questions about Yamaha Kodiak 450
Hello, I have recently driven my first quad or atv and I get mechanical questions:
1.is the gear shift like a car CVT? does it work with oil pressure?
2.Does the clutch go with oil pressure or is it a centrifugal type like scooters or nitro remote-controlled cars?
- How does the P, N, L, H, R gear lever work? Is it at the exit of the gear change like the reduction of a 4x4? In other words, you can only change gear at idle because there is no clutch and the axles have to stay still?
- How many differentials does it have? Because I don't understand how with the 4x4 drive on when I brake I can lock only the front or rear wheels. Both axes should be in solidarity with the 4x4.
- Regarding the above, the vehicle is very manageable, it has to have differentials of some kind, at least in front
- Regarding the gearbox, I was impressed by how much it retains, you don't even need to brake, it's incredible, even downhill it retains a lot. Why doesn't the engine stall when I lock the rear wheels to drift? When I brake behind and lock the wheels, then when I release the brake I don't feel the same engine retention, I have to give like a touch of the accelerator to feel that the engine is connected again
- I'm amazed, this ATV comes standard with winch and 4x2 and 4x4 button with electronic gear???
- Regarding the power: I think it would be limited because the top speed did not reach 60kmph and with the 4x4 drive it is not that there was much acceleration when going full throttle.

2023.06.08 10:37 BrilliantDrop5311 Benzo Withdrawal
Hi there people.
I didnt find anything awnsering me this question online so i wanted to ask here.
First a lil background : I was heavily addicted to benzos for 6 years and also smoked a hell ton of weed and took other drugs like mdma and psychedelics in that time. Now im sober off them benzos for 8 months and dont take any other drugs except for weed occasianally and i did take mdma once in that period.
So back in the day i would just be completely numb physically and psychologically. If i felf any type of discomfort i would just take more benzos and dont think about it.
Now a little headache can cause me to think my head will explode or i have brain cancer or stuff like that because i did not experience those feelings for a lot of years.
Finally my question: How long does my brain need to reset and adjust to being normal again? And is there anything i can do to help the recovery process?
I really appreciate any serious advice on this topic and i wish you a great day people :)

2023.06.08 10:37 Oops_Cat WiMi Hologram Cloud（WIMI）Developed And Innovated Its BCI Gaming Model
Last Monday, Tesla CEO Elon Musk said on Twitter that brain-computer interfaces could solve the biggest bottleneck in human progress. Musk is known to have launched the Neuralink in 2016. He believes the company’s technology can help humans achieve “symbiosis” with artificial intelligence. Simply put, people will be able to combine their brains with computers.
When it comes to brain-computer interfaces, the first impression may be that Musk makes monkeys “mind-type.” Since then, Musk’s Neuralink has been developing brain implants designed to treat diseases such as paralysis and blindness. Recently, however, the Chinese team was surprised.
https://preview.redd.it/td5cw74car4b1.png?width=830&format=png&auto=webp&s=6058b820c106cd26a9f00636a1f822b32e2f299a The world’s first brain-computer interface test on monkeys was successfully conducted
Recently, the world’s first nonhuman primate interventional brain-computer interface test has been successful in Beijing, which is of great significance to promoting the field of brain science research, marking China’s brain-computer interface technology among the international leading ranks.
The experiment was led by Professor Duan Feng’s team from Nankai University and jointly completed with the General Hospital of the People’s Liberation Army (301 Hospital) and Shanghai Xinwei Medical Technology Co., Ltd., which broke through core technologies such as endovascular EEG signal acquisition and interventional EEG signal recognition. According to the video, the surgical monkey just needs to “think” to bring the food to the imports.
This technology has been widely used in medical, military, and other fields, such as it can help patients with stroke and ALS recover, and even store human thinking, consciousness, and memory in the future. This series of very magical results have begun to happen. It seems that some scenes in sci-fi blockbusters are not so far away from us.
Brain-computer interface refers to a direct connection between the brain of a human or animal and an external device to exchange information between the brain and the device. At present, there are mainly three kinds of BCI, invasive, non-invasive, and interventional BCI. Neuralink, founded by “Iron Man of Silicon Valley” Musk and a team of scientists, is one of the few companies that develop invasive brain-computer interfaces.
In contrast, the interventional brain-computer interface technology used in China is safer. According to information released by Nankai University, the team sent interventional EEG sensors through the singular vein into the sagittal sinus and the motor cortex brain region. After surgery, the team successfully collected and identified the non-human primate interventional EEG signals, realizing the active control of the robotic arm.
It can be said that the interventional brain-computer interface takes both intrusive and non-invasive strengths while avoiding the shortcomings of both. From the current development, brain-computer interface technology has made breakthroughs, which may first help to the medical industry. Guotai Junan Securities pointed out that medicine and health is the main application scenario of brain-computer, and the future will gradually penetrate entertainment, smart home, and other fields, and become an important form of human-computer interaction. Brain-computer interface technology will enable the metaverse
Brain-computer interface is a complex system and a basic tool for reading and writing on dynamic network data of neurons. What is more surprising is that, with the sudden rise of the Metaverse, people have great expectations for the integration and interaction of the virtual world and the real world. Many people in the industry believe that the brain-computer interface is the cutting-edge technology hatched by Metaverse.
In the future, brain-computer interface technology will enable Metaverse, and the brain-computer interface is expected to become the next generation of human-computer interaction technology, the ultimate form of Metaverse. At the same time, with the continuous development of Metaverse in the future, the strong support of national policies, as well as the continuous exploration of brain science, the brain-computer interface will become the next generation of Metaverse entrance after VR and AR, realizing the real Metaverse.
According to the White paper on brain-computer Interface standardization released by the China Institute of Electronic Technology Standardization, the potential market for brain-computer interface technology (Brain-Computer Interface, BCI) will soon reach tens of billions of yuan. Another prediction analysis believes that the brain-computer interface in the next 20-30 years, the commercial application will gradually land, will open a 100 billion dollars of market.
The technical race has already begun. Brain-computer interface technology is an important strategic direction of the new round of scientific and technological revolution and industrial transformation. The future industry represented by the brain-computer interface has stepped into the fast lane, and the formation of breakthrough scientific research achievements and innovative applications is the strategic need for innovative development. WiMi Hologram Cloud focuses on brain-computer interface achievements
At present, the brain-computer interface field has tried to combine technology in the consumer field, and the application of in-game interaction is becoming more and more popular. It is understood that WiMi Hologram Cloud (NASDAQ: WIMI) has started to develop BCI game models and paradigms based on brain-computer interfaces. The game model was designed with a P300 brain-computer interface to explore a feasible and natural game execution experience using electroencephalography (EEG) signals in a practical environment.
According to the report, the novelty of the WiMi Hologram Cloud study is reflected in the design of the BCI games and the paradigm, which integrates the rules of the game and the characteristics of the BCI system. In addition, the convolutional neural network (CNN) algorithm is introduced to achieve high accuracy on the training samples. This brain-computer interface system not only provides a form of entertainment but also provides more possibilities for game control.
To be sure, WiMi Hologram Cloud is based on the CNN BCI game model, forming a platform that can meet the interests of both healthy and disabled users. For healthy users, brain-computer interface games are mysterious and technical, which increases the charm of the game and is very conducive to the promotion of the game. For users with disabilities, BCI games provide them with a fair gaming platform, not only allowing them to play games with healthy users in the same way but also as a functional rehabilitation system to help patients with rehabilitation training. WiMi Hologram Cloud’s application of brain-computer interface technology to entertainment games is an important part of promoting BCI technology from the scientific research stage to the practical application market stage. Conclusion
On the whole, although the new achievements of brain-computer interface technology in China have attracted global attention, it needs to be admitted that at present, the research perspective of foreign brain-computer interface technology is more advanced than that in China, and there can be some technological breakthroughs from 0 to 1. However, the advantages of China are more reflected in the range from 1 to 10, that is, domestic enterprises are good at learning from overseas innovative ideas, making better improvements and engineering realization of products, and pushing the products to the clinic more quickly. In short, if you want to catch up, and eventually lead the industry trend, the core point must also be to increase the investment in basic scientific research.

2023.06.08 10:36 No_EvidenceOfCrimes My story of addiction from age 7 to 18 (long and advice part marked)
Idek where to start this since it's mostly out of the blue for me, but my one hope is some of my experience may be able to help someone else suffering the same way I am.
So from the beginning, 7 year old me was in the living room with my parents and a sex scene in the movie they where watching came on and I didn't even know what sex was or what a naked woman looked like so that was the first time in my life that I ever saw someone else naked and that basically a butterfly that started a hurricane.
7yr self curious as ever stumbled over to the little laptop I got for Christmas and roughly typed in naked girl or smth like that, it was like 11 years ago. But I remember the first image of porn I ever saw and I was weirded out but couldn't stop looking, It felt like a urge came over me. From age 7-9 I didn't touch myself but I watched porn maybe 2 times a week as my addiction grew.
I think at around age 10 or 10 and a half is when I actually started jerking off and I was instantly hooked from the small dopamine spikes and promptly went on the same process 2-4 times a week for about 3 years and over those 3 years my life was basically in ruins. I gained a lot of weight, everything I did felt boring, I was severely demotivated to the point even getting out of bed didn't seem worth it, it was nearly impossible to make me happy and I had depression by the age of 12 and had random times where I would just breakdown and cry and small things would almost always lead to a mental breakdown, I was clinically online cause nothing really made me happy so I thought watching other people be happy would make me happy (it didn't).
Of course I had several times where I quit but I always ended up relapsing 10x worse and going like 2 times 7 days a week. Which was really unhealthy not just for my mental health but for my physical health I felt weak and just felt like I was on autopilot most of the time.
At around age 14-17 puberty didn't make it any easier but it was also the time I got into my religion and masturbation was a sin and all that so I felt even more guilty but this was the time where I tried to step up and knew I needed to do something and I'm currently in that process right now of quitting. Now for the advice.
ADVICE ADVICE ADVICE ADVICE ADVICE
1.Get the device or whatever you watch porn on and put it as far away as possible. No this doesn't mean like out of your house or smth but like on the other side of the house.
- Whenever you feel an urge, practice or do something productive even if it's night get up and just stand or do jumping jacks for a little or you could even watch a movie.
- Therapy, I know people don't wanna hear it but this is one of the best methods is for professional help. Personally I had to get through myself cause therapy was expensive and my therapist wasn't good.
- Wear headphones or play something loudly like music or even rain/white noise I prefer headphones personally but the reason for this is it makes my mind go blank cause I'm focusing on the noise and can't concentrate on thought.
- Don't go looking for serious things on here unless its for advice or your trying to learn from someone else. This is mostly optional but the reason for this is all these serious things can bum a person out sometimes it's nice to just look at some anti porn memes to give you some encouragement to keep going.
Sorry if the grammar is bad it's 4:35 am and I'm tired and a lil sad now lol. Much love and good luck everyone.

2023.06.08 10:36 StrikingCourage3768 What are the benefits of LED therapy in Laser Facials?
Light emitting diode commonly known as LED can be used in facials.
Light-based treatment helps in reducing wrinkles and acne. LEDs nowadays are used in everyday items as well as in medical devices targeting skin problems. They can treat skin problems like wound healing, acne, wrinkles, and more. It also treats internal problems like arthritis or other joint or muscle pain. These treatments are safe for all skin types.
An LED mask comes with a spectrum of light with different wavelengths that penetrate the skin to make changes at the molecular level. Each spectrum of light that produces different colors targets different conditions. For example, red light is designed to increase circulation and collagen production, therefore reducing fine lines and wrinkles. The blue light targets the acne-causing bacteria, actively killing them and stopping the acne cycle. These are the two most common colors used but other colors like yellow are used to reduce redness and green is used to reduce pigmentation.
There are several benefits of LED in treatments:
- Increased collagen production
Collagen is known to be the most abundant protein in our body. Collagen improves the skin’s health; it replaces what is naturally lost with aging. It helps to smooth out wrinkles and increases the elasticity of the skin which makes it look younger.
The LED blue can actively kill the acne-causing bacteria and arrest the acne cycle preventing it from appearing again. It also gets rid of oily greasy skin.
- Promotes cell regeneration
Your skin is exposed to a lot of elements in the environment that cause skin damage. We can’t escape these elements but we can aid in the process of healing. LED masks promote the regeneration of cells that replace this damaged skin.
It minimizes inflammation and provides relief for several inflammatory diseases like eczema, psoriasis, etc.
Although they don’t replace your regular skin-care routine, LED light masks and devices work best when utilized to encourage collagen formation and eliminate the germs that cause acne outbreaks. To ensure your safety while treating your skin, follow the instructions and take the required safety precautions before using them, such as wearing eye protection.

2023.06.08 10:35 Regular_Angle_2955 Full 'gambling' experience in HSR with: Qingque (ft. Silverwolf)
For legal reasons, I DO NOT SUPPORT GAMBLING :3
So I've seen a lot of Qingque guides and videos and one conclusion i can draw is that she is simultaneously the best and worst character in hsr.
For any who dont know, her damage is mainly through drawing 4 of the same majong🀄 tiles through complete luck. And u use a skill point that RNGs the tiles. So if your luck is bad, u dont get 4 same tiles, u get small dmg. BUT if u manage to use 4 skill points and get 4 matching tiles, you get an attack % buff that stacks 4 times into your enhanced basic attack. And if u got decent crit and atk, u get a mahjong tile tossed in your face that DECIMATES everything.
The reason I love her so much is (u might have guess) the gambling. The thrill of not getting 4 similar tiles 💀💀 the dopamine and pain i get by getting or not getting 4 similar tiles to maximise my damage just makes my HSR experience so much more...interesting. Especially during times when the enemy is on the very precipice of death and RNG just fails me. I love the pain 🥲.
Yesterday, I just got Silverwolf. I got myself a monoquantum team with Seele, SW and QQ and either natasha/fire trailblazer as the last slot, so my HSR experience so far is either a) 'fkk where r my skill points?' or the worst/best one (I'll let u decide) b) the joy or pain that comes with the full casino gambling experience between Silverwolf's randomised debuffs and Qingque's RNG tiles.
Idk if im a masochist or what bcs I love torturing myself by playing these 2 characters together :D so for anyone who loves causing pain to themselves ontop of losing 50/50s in both Genshin and Honkai, highly reccomend Qingque. To many, she may be a troll character but seriously she's my spirit animal. Loves gambling (cough cough), lazy to work and a whole ass meme.
But rest assured. Despite not doing much damage if she doesnt get 4 of the same tiles, QQ does massive emotional damage to you. At least I can guarentee that.
In a nutshell, 10/10 reccomend QQ for the elevated Gacha experience in HSR!

2023.06.08 10:35 Feeling-View9535 A beginner’s guide to balloon play during sex
We’re really popping off.
Blowing up balloons. Popping balloons. Orgasming because of balloons.
If you clicked on this article because you absolutely needed to know what balloons and sex
have to do with each other, it’s party time. Balloon fetishes are some of the most niche and interesting.
What’s more, the ways in which balloons play a central role in some people’s lives can go beyond sexual arousal. Some adults just absolutely love balloons and want to play with them. This can bring with it some complex emotions, as our society doesn’t encourage adult humans to play like children. But it shouldn’t be seen as anything weird, shameful, or otherwise. There is nothing wrong with getting your jollies from a blown up bit of latex.
This multifaceted fetish is incredibly expansive and the ways in which balloons can be involved in your play (both sexual and non-sexual) deserves to be laid out so we can all understand it a bit better.
Why? Because it’s actually freakin’ cool … and pretty complex. We’re talking about sub-categories, different levels of sexual involvement, and about 50 trillion different ways people might play with balloons. While there is hardly any research on balloon fetishes directly, a 2007 academic article(opens in a new tab)
does highlight the many ways this fetish plays out within the community. It’s deep, y’all. This fetish may look like child's play, but it is a psychological soup. Let’s break it down.
What is balloon play?
Balloon play is a sexual fetish that involves, you guessed it, balloons.
People with this fetish will often refer to themselves as "Looners." Looner communities can be found all over the internet — which is the case for basically all niche interests. You can always find your people.
Professional kinkster Mistress Kye tells us that there are two main categories of Looners: Poppers and Non-Poppers. Poppers enjoy building up the tension and anticipation around popping the balloon. Non-Poppers enjoy playing with the balloon, but have no desire to destroy it. People with this fetish will often refer to themselves as "Looners."
The degree to which the interest in balloons is sexual will vary from person to person. "Some balloon lovers feel their interest isn’t overly sexual but creates strong feelings of excitement, satisfaction, and relaxation," Sarah Melancon, PhD, a sociologist, clinical sexologist, and resident expert at The Sex Toy Collective, explains. "Some feel playing with balloons helps reduce stress."
Kye adds that "some players just want innocent, silly play like popping the balloons in fun, creative and engaging ways with others."
And yeah, most of the time, the balloon play is probably sexual, but that doesn’t mean it is ~always~ sexual. While we refer to balloon play as a "fetish," it doesn’t always center sexual excitement or release.......

2023.06.08 10:34 Lottynaught Doctor prescribe wrong medicine and makes partner go psychotic?
My partner is 19FTM 5”5 160lbs no testosterone no ftm medicine currently. They went to the doctor two days ago. I was getting live updates of what the doctor said and I did confirming it with my partner. Currently he would be the one posting on here but he is not coherent enough to be texting currently and I got his permission to do this. While he tried to nap this off to smooth our fears. So I am texting on his behalf. my partner went in for a suspected hernia because I did notice a lump in their stomach. Before going in I was worried it maybe strangled because of the pain complaint so i softly massaged it back into the abdomen. As soon as I felt a little pop of it going back in pain seem to dissipate a little bit but still went to their primary physician. Doctor said it wasn’t a hernia that it was tissue sticking out of the weak part through the muscles which right there already made me baffled. I told my partner to ask more questions, and he didn’t get very far with that. Whatever we trust the doctor and that’s where I screwed up my partner mentioned having headaches so the doctor prescribed 25mg of topiramate. OK I know it’s an anticonvulsant usually used for seizures and offsetting migraines. That’s OK. The doctor said it was to help with his MDD with psychotic tendencies mood swings and their migraines. Odd never heard of it being prescribed that way, but I just assumed it was off script (but was never informed of that). Seeing as a doctor did not mention any major side effects or concerns when my partner asked about it we assumed that it was a relatively safe medicine although I did have my worries because I did vaguely remember hearing that it could cause memory loss and my partner already kind of suffers from memory loss, (I listen to doctor podcast and medical case studies for fun so I knew of it but not really) no diagnosis on it just random symptoms that they have including memory loss suspected PCOS but not confirmed just listing out these just in case it may help but that is not why the medication was prescribed. Well the doctor told him to take it when they felt a migraine coming on and then if it didn’t work take it two hours later again OK well I go and buy my partners medicine for them you know trying to be nice and it says take one tablet by mouth for two weeks, then increase to take one tablet by mouth twice a day Odd, but seeing as the doctor gave very precise instructions, they went based off the doctors instructions and took one waited 2 hours took another one and went to sleep easy Peezy no problem may be a bit of odd mood swings but not much. Until they took it today on my birthday I mention it’s my birthday so you understand that I’ve been with my partner since the beginning of this day he was awake all day and active in celebration which is till now 3:33 AM. And also let me warn you that the only warning on this bottle says may cause drowsiness, dizziness, alcohol and marijuana may intensify this effect. (They don’t smoke pot and drink alcohol rarely and never very drunk drinking more of a like the flavor so sip sip done drinking). Use care when operating a vehicle vessel, boat, or machinery, and the piece of paper that came with the medicine bag doesn’t give any information it says that we are suppose to get a pamphlet. We never got a pamphlet, nor was it offered and the Hyppa agreement was never signed either at the bottom of that paper. Real odd because I did a little bit of digging and knowing that this medicine has a lot more side effects and had a lot more warnings on the Internet if I had only known, there were so many more that I did not know my partner went from a sweet may be a little bit of an airhead reserved respectable man and into what seemed to be a drunken hysterical psychotic person, switching from high to low to numb back to high. Constantly sweating and sprinting everywhere. Grabbing onto me aggressively then suddenly dead panning away. They seem to want to end it all because they laughed at a fart joke and said that they shouldn’t have laughed at such a horrible joke, which, in my opinion it wasn’t and then started degrading themselves viciously. They then started to profusely, just sob, and then static then stop again and then hysterical, manic laughter. And my partner has only had two episodes ever that were like (which were Lows where they just quiet cried and once screamed at the sky ) this and they were brought on by high intensity stress. Now that the medicine has started to wear off, they admitted to me that they were not stressed about my birthday or anything, when this suddenly struck. They also had a almost impossible time differentiating between reality in their delusions, and they have never ever ever had a problem of disorienting between reality and delusions. They also seemed to suddenly have picked up OCD tendencies out of nowhere having this extreme, strong, intense urge to find exactly replica cans of some kind of drink that we were getting, and I don’t mean the same color in size I mean, no dents, facing forward in the same aisle within the same conformed group same brand, same name, same texture And I can tell you my partner is the least OCD person I have ever met and this is coming from someone with OCD. They will dump all their colors. They will sleep with Mitch matched blankets and they cannot understand why I lock the door three times over so it’s not like they had OCD and it just suddenly came out like peekaboo. They also suddenly had the hardest time peeing. We thought it was a UTI because recently they had taken a UTI test because they couldn’t P but nothing as we delve deeper into possible side effects all of these a line with side effects from this medicine, some common some rare, but just all of a sudden they were showing OCD tendencies they were sounding like they were drunk I made him do it stroke test the past fine besides the slurred speech they were stumbling around they were unable to stand upright even for a moment. They were having high low, numb, high low, numb cycles that even I cant keep up with in that were way beyond his usual. They became 20,000 times more degrading and suicidal. Their delusions were impossible to tell from reality. They’re eyes suddenly became incredibly dilated to where I could only see a sliver of the blue. I’m sorry if I’m missing some details I’ll edit them in but like I said it is 3:30 AM and I am just watching my husband sleep because I am so terrified he won’t go to the ER. He won’t go to the hospital and I will be assisting him in calling his doctor tomorrow when this medicine has worn off by then.
My question is what is this drug? What is it meant for mostly? What are the worst symptoms possible for it and if possibly allowed on the sub, Reddit do normal doctors prescribe this like a normal basis because it seems pretty dangerous to me? I will admit the doctor did not disclose any of the side effects even when I asked if this was a routine, drug and stuff like that. also, I looked through the rules but my brain is so scattered from the events of today that I may have overlooked one if I broke any rules I’m so sorry.

Jeans are a staple in every man's wardrobe, but keeping them clean and in good condition can be a challenge. Here are some tips on how to properly clean and maintain your men's jeans:
- Wash less frequently: Jeans don't need to be washed after every wear. In fact, washing them too frequently can cause the denim to fade and lose its shape. Instead, try washing your jeans every 5-6 wears or as needed.
- Read the care label: Always check the care label on your jeans before washing. Some denim fabrics require specific care instructions to maintain their shape and color.
- Hand wash: To prevent any damage to your jeans, hand washing is the best option. Use cold water and a mild detergent to gently scrub away any dirt or stains.
- Machine wash: If you must machine wash your jeans, turn them inside out to protect the color and use the delicate cycle. Use cold water and a mild detergent, and avoid using fabric softener.
- Air dry: Never put your jeans in the dryer as it can cause shrinking, fading, and damage to the fabric. Instead, hang them up and allow them to air dry.
- Ironing: Ironing jeans can help to smooth out any wrinkles and creases. However, be sure to use low heat and iron them inside out to protect the color and fabric.
- Storage: When storing your jeans, avoid folding them as it can cause creasing. Instead, hang them up or roll them up and place them in a drawer.
By following these simple tips, you can keep your men's jeans looking great for years to come. So, take care of your denim, and it will take care of you!

2023.06.08 10:33 networkarchitectural Why Opting For Non-Combustible Cladding Is A Sensible Option For Modern Buildings
This article explores the reasons why opting for non-combustible cladding
is a legal requirement in many jurisdictions and a smart decision.
In recent years, the construction industry globally has witnessed several devastating incidents caused by the rapid spread of fires in high-rise buildings. These incidents have shed light on the crucial role of cladding materials in fire safety. Non-combustible cladding has emerged as a sensible and responsible choice for modern buildings, offering numerous advantages over combustible alternatives.
This article will explore the reasons why opting for non-combustible cladding in Australia
is not only a legal requirement in many jurisdictions but also a smart decision to ensure the safety and well-being of occupants in Australia. Fire Safety Regulations and Codes
Following tragic fire incidents, governments and regulatory bodies have implemented stricter fire safety regulations and codes for building construction. In many regions, these regulations now mandate the use of non-combustible cladding in high-rise structures. By complying with these regulations, building owners and developers demonstrate their commitment to protecting the lives of occupants and mitigating the risks associated with fire outbreaks. Superior Fire Resistance
Non-combustible cladding, such as metal or mineral-based panels, offers superior fire resistance compared to combustible materials like timber or plastic-based composites. In the event of a fire, non-combustible cladding acts as a barrier, preventing the rapid spread of flames and limiting the potential damage. It significantly reduces the risk of fire engulfment, buying valuable time for the evacuation of occupants and enabling emergency response teams to effectively control the situation. Reduced Fire Load
One crucial advantage of non-combustible cladding is its ability to minimise the fire load within a building. The fire load refers to the amount of combustible materials present in an enclosed space. By opting for non-combustible cladding, building owners can reduce the overall fire load and limit the potential fuel available to a fire. This proactive measure is essential in preventing the rapid development of fires and their devastating consequences. Enhanced Structural Integrity
Apart from its fire-resistant properties, non-combustible cladding
contributes to the structural integrity of buildings. Materials like steel or stone-based cladding systems are known for their durability and strength. They offer excellent resistance against external factors such as weather, impact, and deterioration, ensuring the long-term stability of the building. By choosing non-combustible cladding, architects and engineers can enhance the structural performance of the building, providing occupants with a safer environment. Improved Insulation and Energy Efficiency
Non-combustible cladding options, particularly those incorporating insulation materials, can provide excellent thermal performance. These systems help regulate temperature, minimising heat loss during colder months and reducing heat gain in warmer climates. By improving insulation and energy efficiency, non-combustible cladding not only promotes environmental sustainability but also enhances occupant comfort and reduces energy consumption. Positive Public Perception and Value
Choosing non-combustible cladding for modern buildings also has significant implications for public perception and value. With the increasing awareness of fire safety, prospective buyers, tenants, and investors are more likely to show a preference for properties with non-combustible cladding. Buildings equipped with such cladding systems convey a sense of reliability, responsibility, and commitment to safety. Consequently, these structures tend to attract higher market values and enjoy a competitive edge in the real estate industry. Conclusion
Given the rising concerns regarding fire safety in buildings, opting for non-combustible cladding Australia
is undoubtedly a sensible option for modern construction projects. Non-combustible cladding materials not only comply with fire safety regulations but also offer superior fire resistance, reduced fire load, enhanced structural integrity, improved insulation, and energy efficiency. Additionally, such cladding choices positively impact public perception and property value.

2023.06.08 10:32 assmoriendi super weird double fenris bug on PC? [no spoilers]
asking this question on my husband's behalf. he's playing DA2 on PC and has a very strange bug that displays two fenrises on the party select screen. they're layered directly on top of each other in the spot where fenris stands, and he can add both fenrises to his party as if they were two separate characters. we've been calling them Fenris #1 and Fenris #2, lol.
additionally, he is romancing fenris, but he had to force it using console commands, for reasons i will explain below:
Fenris #1 is wearing his unromanced armor and has a visible approval bar, but the little status arrow is stuck in place about 3/4 of the way toward full friendship regardless of how much approval he gains or loses, while Fenris #2 is wearing the romanced armor and has no visible approval bar at all.
if he takes Fenris #1 on a quest with him, and makes a choice that affects fenris's approval, he will see the little text notification about the approval change, but like i mentioned above, the approval bar on his character profile doesn't change.
if he takes Fenris #2 with him, choices that should be affecting fenris's approval don't result any text notification, so he's not sure if the choices are even affecting the approval at all. and he can't check, because Fenris #2 has no approval bar, and Fenris #1's bar is stuck!
because of all of this, fenris's approval is an unpredictable mess, so that's why he had to force the romance to trigger.
husband has some cosmetic and gameplay mods installed, but nothing that should be affecting fenris aside from cosmetic changes. we have absolutely no idea what could be causing this problem and i haven't been able to find anything online about a bug like this! anyone have any ideas?

2023.06.08 10:32 JadedToon Rake's hot take
Normally I love the guy, but this statement rubbed me the wrong way.
During their little strategy meeting he remarks how the Malazan Empire isn't as bad as other empires. How the laws are not as represive and the conquered lands benefit from the economy.
Here is why I call bullshit on it.
- The Economic Benefits are questionable if we look at the seven cities. The people rebelled against the empire because they were exploited to the hilt. Because that's what colonial empires do by their nature. They suck the blood out of those they conquer to feed the capital city.
- The massive bigotry towards everything even remotely off the mainland. Coltain was the single best fist they ever had, but he was always looked down upon by the majority. Considered a dumb barbarian and a leftover from Kellenved's time.
- The Malazan Empire cannot be trusted for shit. Individuals maybe, but the overall system is beyond screwed up. The biggest slaughter in dead house gate was caused by Korbolo Dom and Mallic Rel. EMPIRES OWN. Bolstered by the incompetence and arrogance of the nobility.
- No too represive laws? Is he unaware of magic being borderline outlawed unless you have permission from the empire? I think that was mentioned at the start of GoTM or so. While I know that not every person is going to have magic, it still seems common enough for it to be a represive law.
Which kinda brings up a bit of confusion in me. If he doesn't see it as that bad, then why fight it? Because his people have literally nothing better to do?
Brood does it because he is a mercenary. But even with him I am confused.
Like I said the empire cannot be trusted, they will tolerate Brood and his tribes for as long as it's convenient. The moment they can gain something, they will slaughter them all without hesitation.
