2023.06.09 15:39 Venomous_Duck_Media Actor Spotlight for Gareth and the Lost Island
Today's Gareth and the Lost Island
Actor Spotlight is on the tremendously talented and funny Daniel Fore.
Daniel first blew my mind when he gave a performance of the robot secretary Loni that was exactly how I've heard her in my head since I wrote the character several years ago. He went on to impress me even further as the other half of the Sheldon comedy duo. Daniel is the Bob Hope to OJVA's Bing Crosby (or for the younger folks - Chris Farley to David Spade or Peter Giffen to Brian Giffen.) These two roles are extremely different, yet Daniel turned in masterful performances on both.
I really can't recommend Daniel Fore enough (unless you are trying to get him to work for you when I need him for season 2, in which case I'll say, "Back off! I found him first!") In all seriousness, you won't be disappointed working with Daniel, and I can't wait to work with the comedy duo of Fore and OJVA again.
Daniel has been voice acting since 2019, what started as a bet with friends turned into a new passion he plans to pursue for the rest of his life. With a variety of different voices at his disposal, he's able to bring a multitude of characters to life from young children, high school girls, and powerful women all the way to snarky rich boys, nasally nerds, and the creature that you hope to god isn't standing behind you. He's also a great singer too!
In his free time he enjoys video games, drawing, playing tabletop RPGs, collecting ironic fish hats, sharing fun facts with anyone who will listen, embroidery, and crocheting!
If you have any business inquiries, want to hear a fun fact, see his fish hat collection, a mix of two, or all of the above you can reach him at [email protected]

2023.06.09 15:34 Accomplished_Ice9331 am I being unreasonable? friend said I’d be making it hard for her if I don’t want her mentioning my deadname.
I had told my friend in the past that eventually I don’t want people knowing my deadname, and I have recently come to befriend some new people (who don’t know my deadname, and have no interest in knowing it). I asked her if she could just not bring it up, and she got defensive and said she wasn’t going to “stress about censoring herself because my mom still deadnames me anyway sometimes so it’s gonna come out anyway” and that “it’s something we (me and her) joke about”—which I haven’t joked about in quite some time.—(I can’t recall verbatim what she said, that’s pretty much the gist of what I got from her response). I’m well aware it could come up and I know it’s out of my control, with it still being my legal name, I know it’s basically impossible to avoid it coming up all together and I told her this. It came up when she was telling me about talking to her dad about my transition (which I’ve started pretty recently) and I asked how they even knew my deadname. She said about a decade ago when we first met she told her parents about me and said “their name is [deadname] but they go by [my name].” So her parents still screw it up sometimes and even occasionally don’t know who she’s talking about until she says my deadname. I told her I was uncomfortable even with the fact she tells so many people I’m trans and refers to me as her “trans friend” sometimes. She said it’s because she’s proud to have a trans friend, but I told her it’s not exactly something I’m proud of enough of, and that I really don’t want everyone knowing I’m trans. (Especially with how things are going in the world right now). She just made me feel like I was being crazy or unreasonable for asking her such a thing. And seemed to disregard my feelings about it and make it about her. It’s something I get really insecure about asking for in general like I’m asking too much or being stupid. Sorry this is all over the place. But am I being unreasonable? Knowing that it’s bound to come out eventually but asking her to not bring it up regardless? It’s things like this that make me not want people knowing my deadname to begin with.

2023.06.09 15:32 shinwoa [Q] Quality of an estimator depending on the number of classes ?
I was wondering if you knew of any reference addressing the quality of a maximum likelihood estimator on a multiclass problem (multinomial or Dirichlet for instance) depending on the number of classes ? I have been told that as the number of classes increases, the performance of the estimator drops (which seems intuitive) but I haven't been able to find any paper describing this effect.
When looking on the curse of dimensionality, most of the time they are talking about the number of covariates...

2023.06.09 15:31 Grouchy_Corner_9922 Anxiety when thinking about previous workplace
Hello there :)
I have a concern regarding a recent situation I was in. I have now graduated Bachelor's of Architecture and have enrolled (and currently am studying) in a Master's programme. During my Bachelor's I was working as an intern in an architectural practice, which was a fulfilling experience, although i used to screw up every now and then - make slight mistakes in architectural drawings therefore the archictects needing to correct it. But that shouldn't matter that much in this situation. That used to give me immense anxiety just cause of the dramatic reaction of them, (a few of) the architects, and I used to overthink that "they would spread bad words about me to their collegues from other practices and i wouldnt get a good job". But most of the time everything was ok, I just couldnt find myself fitting in as well as i wanted to. Then i left as i started my master's and worked a bit elsewhere. Oh, and forgot to mention - i was paid below the minimum wage.
Now I have to start my school internship - which is obligatory to graduate Master's - under and architect, which means i have to find a new job starting autumn. It just so happened that my old boss recently called and asked if i'd like to come back. Instantly my hands started to shake and I was anxious for god knows what reason, and I said that "i dont need this offer right now, but i need to start and internship somewhere in autumn" and they were like "ok, well then let's talk in autumn, maybe you know some students who would like to come in a bit before autumn though?" and the call ended on that note, and i informed my peers on the offer while declining it myself.
the thing is - the reason they are calling me is to get me back there with the previous hourly pay, that's why i believe they reached out to me and potentially other students, who wouldnt mind working for a smaller pay than they deserve for the work.
I believe myself to be a worthy employee, because of my +2y successful work experience, software knowledge and good grades. I just feel demotivated and way underpaid in that particular office, although they sort of involve me in events etc.
- I have found a few offices which I would like to try to work in as well. ++ the bosses are a married couple and the employees are random younger architects, age 20-30 max and 20 employees, if that makes any sense.
the office is located in Estonia, but that shouldnt matter much either.
Q: what is your opinion on this? should I go back and do my internship there and risk getting a low pay (because they know how much i was willing to work gor previously), or look for another office and start off fresh? and how to not feel guilt for declining if i go somewhere else? because they will definitely know the other offices and know the place as well.
TL;DR - im anxious to return to my previous internship place because of slightly arrogant bosses and low pay, but i feel awful to look for another place because they know most local architectural practices and could stab me in the back some way. and i just want to try something new and not feel guilt when i would decline when they call me again.

2023.06.09 15:30 comradeBodko Theory - Tiger Niko is going to hijack Ryuki as the Tiger's Vessel
This is probably hoping for way too much, and there's more than a small chance I'm completely off-base or forgetting some detail that discredits this.
Ryuki is heavily implied at this point to be a perfect or near-perfect clone of Shen Wulong. Shen seemed to be angry watching Berserker Bowl upon seeing how badly Mukaku and Kiryu's influences had psychologically messed with Ryuki, who is meant to be his next body.
It's possible that "The Tiger's Vessel" and "The Connector" are interchangeable terms, but I'd find this to be a bit of a let-down personally. Rather, I think The Connector is specifically the line of duplicates of Shen Wulong stretching back however many hundred years. "The Tiger's Vessel" could instead refer to a new body for Tiger Niko, one capable of sustaining Divine Demon. It wouldn't be surprising for a clone of Shen Wulong to fit this, based on him seeming to be basically superhuman.
In my opinion, this would make more sense than Tiger Niko just defecting to the Worm to spite Mukaku. It's been well established that authentic Worm subordinates are fanatically dedicated to the group, while Niko has seemed in every appearance to still have his own agenda.
Other possible points of evidence:
-Tiger Niko used Fei as a test for Divine Demon, but was lying about not intending to use it himself (or at least being misleading in that phrasing). We have foreshadowing about Tiger Niko lying in this way now that we know Mukaku and his unit invented Possessing Spirit, which Niko previously was stated to have developed from the Wu technique. I don't think it's likely that he would still go after Ohma since it's been mentioned several times that Ohma's no longer a viable vessel for one reason or another, and furthermore we know Ohma probably can't sustain Divine Demon since Advance by itself basically killed him.
-The way Ryuki has been jerked around by various characters would fit Tiger Niko's m.o. based on how he influenced Ohma and Kiryu when they were younger, although in this case it would be less direct.
-Tiger Niko betraying the Worm in this way would narratively echo the betrayal by Mukaku's syndicate.
The on point of contradiction I think might be present is the end of Ashura (beginning of Omega?) when Xia Jin is present while "the Tiger's Vessel" was being discussed, but I can't fully remember the details of that conversation.

2023.06.09 15:27 Willow_Pines [TOMT] [PC game] [around 2013?] You need to make sure that the weird cat creature's day doesn't get ruined
I don't remember the year I was obsessed whit this game, but around 20012-'15 is what I would guess. I played it on y8.com and it was under the cat category, but I know that the character was nothing like a cat. It was a pont and click game. I think there were multiple levels and you could lose, but I don't remember how.
It had a dog, a cat (didn't looked like one) and multiple strange creatures, that now I think were supposed to be mice or rats. They were walking on 2 legs and acted like humans.
The whole game was one 2d drawing of a house whit multiple rooms and a door to the inside on the left side of the house. There was a basement and at least 2 floors. I'll try to draw something similar to it for a reference.
The premise was that the cat is home and you need to make sure that its or his day doesn't get ruined by those strange creatures and the dog. There were multiple things that could get destroyed and you needed to fix them. These couldn't kill the cat, just annoyed him.
Next to the door was a flower where that dog could pee. This is the only place where the dog would come. The rats did everything else: put something in the cat's bed, do something whit the first aid kit, pour oil to the stairs, do something to the microwave so when the cat uses it it would blow up, destroy the TV, destroy instruments and probably more. There could be multiple things at the same time.
You needed to click on the object that was tempered whit and a small window would pop up where I think 2 or 3 thing could happen: the object is good, the rats currently tempering it (not sure if it even existed), the object already ruined (you needed to click the image to fix it). You could notice if the object needed to be fixed or not, without clicking on them. I'm gonna draw these as well.
I don't remember the layout but I'm sure that next to the front door was a tall flower, and that it was on the left of the house. There were a kitchen, a bedroom, bathroom, stairs, somewhere to watch TV (in the basement) and a room full of instruments (in the basement).
I tried to find it for years but at this point I'm half convinced that this was a fever dream. Any help would be appreciated!

2023.06.09 15:27 Longjumping-Mind-545 Changes to the Book of Mormon - "God" changed to "son of God"
After the printing of the first edition of the Book of Mormon, Joseph Smith made changes to the subsequent editions. One of these changes is the same for four verses at the beginning of the book. In 1 Nephi, four verses were changed from reading as “God” by adding “the son of” in front of the title. I have provided each of the verses as they read today but put “the son of” in parentheses. Each of these verses would have read as if Jesus were God but it now reads as two separate beings.
18 "And he said unto me: Behold, the virgin whom thou seest is the mother of (the Son of) God, after the manner of the flesh."
21 "And the angel said unto me: Behold the Lamb of God, yea, even (the Son of) the Eternal Father! Knowest thou the meaning of the tree which thy father saw?"
32 "And it came to pass that the angel spake unto me again, saying: Look! And I looked and beheld the Lamb of God, that he was taken by the people; yea, (the Son of) the everlasting God was judged of the world; and I saw and bear record."
40" … the Lamb of God is (the Son of) the Eternal Father, and the Savior of the world; and that all men must come unto him, or they cannot be saved."
Some people see these changes as an indication that the theology of Joseph Smith was changing over time. Instead of a trinitarian view, he was shifting towards separate beings. Others disagree and see the changes as clarification only. FAIR discusses this change and both perspectives around the change.
"The earliest edition of the Book of Mormon referred to Jesus as 'God.' Joseph Smith later changed some, but not all, of these to 'the Son of God.' It is claimed by some that this is evidence that Joseph Smith changed the Book of Mormon to conform to his changing beliefs about the Trinity, claiming that Joseph was originally a solid Trinitarian (perhaps even a Modalist), and as he later began to teach that the Father and Son were two separate beings, he had to change the Book of Mormon to support his new doctrine. However, this change was a deliberate editorial insertion by Joseph Smith to clarify four verses in 1 Nephi."
"It is simply illogical to conclude that Joseph Smith changed the four passages in 1 Nephi to conform to his supposed changing theological beliefs, but somehow forgot to change all the others."
"The terms 'God,' 'Everlasting God,' and 'Eternal Father' are ambiguous since they could properly refer to either the Father or the Son. For example, 'Eternal Father' refers to God the Father in Moroni 4:3, Moroni 5:2, and Moroni 10:4, but to God the Son in Mosiah 16:15 and Alma 11:38-39."
"The addition of 'the Son of' to four passages in 1 Nephi does not change the Book of Mormon's teaching that Jesus Christ is the God of Old Testament Israel. This concept is taught in more than a dozen other passages whose readings remain unchanged from the original manuscripts."
FAIR argues that these changes were simply for clarification and that the change does not reflect a shifting theology. One of the reasons this is a problem for some people is that a similar change is seen in the accounts of the First Vision. The 1832 account only mentions “the Lord”. The 1835 account mentions two unnamed beings. The 1838 account is the first to mention God and Christ as the beings which appeared to Joseph. As the change adding “the Son of” was made for the 1837 edition, it does coincide with the retelling of the accounts of the First Vision.
FAIR also argues that if Joseph wanted to change the theology contained in the Book of Mormon, he would have changed all the ambiguous verses instead of changing only four verses at the beginning of the book. It is hard to say what Joseph would have done in the future as his life ended a few years later. It seems that Joseph was willing to make changes that did not align with the original manuscript and may have continued to do so in the future. Subsequent prophets did not make changes to the text of the Book of Mormon.
An article published in the Ensign indicates that changes were made by Joseph until 1842.
"Both the 1840 and 1842 editions were carefully revised by Joseph Smith. By now, however, Oliver Cowdery had left the Church, taking the printer’s manuscript with him."
"As late as 15 January 1842 Joseph Smith was still making corrections himself. He recorded: 'I commenced reading the Book of Mormon, at page 54, … (the previous pages having been corrected), for the purpose of correcting the stereotype plates of some errors which escaped notice in the first edition.'"
Interestingly, FAIR states that Oliver Cowdery may have been responsible for these particular changes.
"Another reason 'the Son of' was introduced into 1 Nephi 11:18 could have been to eliminate the Catholic-sounding phrase 'the mother of God' that had been objected to by early critics of the Book of Mormon…. Since this criticism of the Book of Mormon was fresh on Oliver's mind, and he was involved in the editing of the 1837 edition of the Book of Mormon, it is possible that the change in 1 Nephi 11:18 was inserted at his prompting."
It is also concerning to suggest that Oliver could be responsible for this important change at all. If anyone could change the text, it would seem that it would be Joseph as the prophet. I had never been presented with a version of the translation of the Book of Mormon where it was open to input from Joseph’s peers.
Once again, the method of translation would make it seem that no one could make changes to the text. If the words were read directly from a seer stone, not much room is left for changes to be made to the text.
Given the method of translation, could any text be changed for clarification?
Does changing the scripture from “God” to “the Son of God” show a shifting theology or is it merely clarification?
Based on what you were taught, would Oliver Cowdery be able to suggest adding words to the verses for clarification?
It is up to each reader to decide.

Now I am looking to go deeper. I am less looking for specific family ties and who I might be related to and more for more ethnicity specifics. 'British' or even 'English' is very broad, (https://prnt.sc/FDnHFYpagrwU Here is the breakdown, for reference)
but is there any service that offers more historic information? Guesses at whether that 'English' is more Celtic, Briton, Roman, Dane, etc and anything any deeper? Or is this just not an available thing?

Тhе Ukrаinians dеstrоуеd thе dаm оf thе Кakhоvka Rеsеrvоir with missilеs; the dаm wаs vеrу оld, аnd was аlso dаmagеd аs а rеsult оf militаrу асtions, whiсh lеd to its sеlf-dеstruсtiоn; Russiаn sоldiеrs triеd tо саrrу out а small соntrollеd dеtоnаtion оf оnе оf the sluiсes, howеvеr, theу used tоо mаnу ехрlоsivеs - thе mass mеdia оf thе Russiаn Fedеrаtiоn citе dozеns оf vеrsiоns, just tо deny the delibеratе mаn-mаdе disаstеr оf thе lеvеl оf еcoсidе in оrder to рrevеnt thе ехресted соuntеrоffеnsivе оf thе Ukrainiаn аrmу. Unfortunаtеly, Westеrn mаss mеdiа mindlеssly аnd unсritiсаllу rеbroаdсаst аll these versiоns, аllеgеdly аdhеring to jоurnаlistiс stаndаrds.
Wеstеrn mеdia stаte thаt Russiа аnd Ukrаinе blame еасh оther fоr undеrmining thе dаm. Fоr sоmе reаson, Westеrn journаlists strangеlу fоrgеt thаt this is not а singlе fасt, but оnе of thеm within а lоng wаr. For еight уеаrs, Russiа ассusеd Ukrаinе оf shеlling pеасeful сities оf Dоnbаs, which wаs not truе. Оn Fеbruаrу 24, 2022, Мosсоw bеgаn tо ассuse Куiv оf shеlling Мariupоl аnd othеr Ukrаiniаn сitiеs, whiсh wаs cоmplete nоnsеnsе. Sinсе thеn, 15 mоnths hаve рassed, during whiсh Russiа соntinuouslу killed сiviliаns with air attaсks thrоughоut thе tеrritorу оf Ukrainе, соmmittеd gеnосidе in thе oссuрiеd tеrritoriеs, dеliberatelу dеstrоyеd сritiсаl сiviliаn infrаstructurе, dероrted mоrе than 3 milliоn Ukrаiniаns, inсluding mоrе thаn 300,000 сhildrеn. Оf соursе, jоurnalists shоuld tаkе intо aссоunt аll this flаshу соnteхt, but fоr sоmе reаsоn this dоes nоt hарреn.
As for thе dаm itself, sevеrаl things аre impоrtаnt. First, at thе time оf its dеstruсtiоn, the dаm wаs соntrоllеd bу Russian troорs, that is, оnlу thеу соuld рlаnt ехрlosives (ехtеrnаl shеlling is nоt саpablе оf dеstrоуing suсh а sеriоus structurе). Sесоnd, аdvаnсing аrmiеs dоn't blow uр dаms, аs thаt might block their wау forwаrd, instеаd, rеtrеаting аrmiеs blow uр dаms tо slow dоwn thе оthеr side's аdvance. Тhirdlу, the Russian militarу оfficiаlly аnnоunсed the faсt оf mining thе dаm and thе еntire Каkhоvkа НPР аs еаrlу as thе summеr оf 2022. Моrеovеr, individual representаtives оf thе Russiаn Fedеrаtiоn - frоm mеmbеrs оf раrliаment to militаrу сorrеsроndеnts - publicly сallеd fоr its dеstruсtiоn!
Аn imроrtаnt thing thаt соnsсiеntious Wеstеrn jоurnаlists shоuld tаkе into ассоunt is thаt, thе dеstructiоn of thе Кakhоvkа Rеsеrvоir will hаvе inсrеdibly sеriоus and vеrу lоng-tеrm соnsеquеncеs fоr thе есоlоgу, сlimаtе, agriсulturаl devеlорmеnt and all lifе in this region, rеgаrdlеss оf еvents оn the bаttlefiеld. Ukrаiniаns livеd оn this tеrritоrу, thеу dеvеlореd аnd imprоvеd it (wаter suрplу, irrigаtiоn, dеvеlореd аgriсulturе, еtc.), аnd most importаntlу, thеу wеrе gоing tо livе оn this tеrritory in thе future. Тo аrrangе аn есоlogiсal disаstеr with сonsеquеnсes for dесаdes wаs роintlеss fоr Ukrainians. Insteаd, fоr Russiаns, it is а fоrеign lаnd and а fоrеign peоplе!
Аnd thе lаst thing is еvaсuаtiоn оf thе рoрulаtiоn from thе flооdеd аrеаs оf the Кhеrson Оblаst. It tаkes рlасе ехclusivеlу on thе right bаnk оf thе Dniереr, соntrоllеd bу Kуiv. Тhе Russiаn оcсupation аdministrаtiоn on thе lеft bаnk of thе Dniереr does nоt еvaсuаtе thе рорulatiоn аt аll! Мorеovеr, 32 % of thе flооdеd arеаs оf thе Кhеrsоn rеgion is thе right bаnk, while аs muсh аs 68 % is the lеft bаnk. In аdditiоn, thе Russiаns аrе соnduсting tаrgеtеd аrtillеrу firе аgаinst еmрlоуeеs (Ministrу оf Intеrnal Аffаirs, thе Statе Еmеrgеnсу Sеrviсе) and vоlunteers соnduсting еvаcuаtiоn оn thе right bаnk.
Аgаinst this backgrоund, it is sаd to sее hоw Tuсkеr Саrlson’s vidеo on Тwittеr, a wеll-knоwn US prеsеntеr (rесеntlу returnеd tо the mеdiа аfter the sсаndаlоus dismissal frоm thе FOХ ТV chаnnеl), whеrе hе рrоves thе guilt оf Ukrаinе in undеrmining the hуdroеlесtriс роwеr plаnt, has аlrеаdу сolleсted mоrе thаn 50 million views. Оf соursе, this figure is quеstiоnable (viеws wеrе usuallу аt thе levеl оf 3-5 million) and, mоst likеlу, it wаs аrtifiсiаllу inсrеased with the hеlр оf aрprорriatе technоlogies. Оf соurse, T. Саrlsоn's main audiеnce cоnsists of suрроrtеrs оf QАnоn аnd МAGА, dерrivеd of thе аbilitу tо think critiсаllу аnd аnаlуzе infоrmаtiоn. In аdditiоn, it is still sad thаt mаnу Wеstern mаss mеdiа mindlеsslу brоаdсаst Russiаn рrораgаndа messagеs that sеrve аnd рrоtеct аn аggressivе tоtаlitarian rеgimе that thrеаtеns thе еntirе Eurоpеаn соntinеnt.

2023.06.09 15:25 sorcerykid The Gender Wiki page for "Boi" has been wiped of all references to gender nonconformity in the gay and lesbian community. The term is now being attributed solely to black nonbinary people. Once again, Tumblr users erasing decades of queer history in the name of political correctness.
2023.06.09 15:24 Old_North8419 Translation help for adding Russian subtitles: What is the best translation?
Source video title: I knew your father...
For those who know Russian, I strongly recommend those who are C1 or C2 level
or native fluency
to provide a translation.
Please refrain from using Yandex, Google or DeepL as they don't translate it correctly, since the video is referring to the perspective on memorial day, also using the analogy of saying he knew his father as a dedication to those who have lost someone they've loved in war, also to sons or daughters who have lost their dad in the war, paying tribute to servicemen.
Keep in mind when adding Russian translation: the speaker in the video is male, so cases will matter, he is saying it from a first person perspective in a expressive / poetic manner, also in the context of the military.
Can you provide a proper translation of the written transcript in Russian?
I'll add the transcription of the video:
I knew your father...
He was a great man, a brother
I know you miss him alot, me too...
I bet a day goes by when you don't think about him...
Kind of seem like when you lose someone you love, every day is memorial day
Your father and I actually went through training together
If it hadn't been for him, I'm not sure I made it
He was so strong, physically & mentally
We were so glad to be assigned to the same team, to be able to make a difference together
To change the world
I remember him challenging us and crushing us during our train-ups
We were all better because of him
I remember all of our deployments together, some good places and good missions, but some bad places and some bad missions.
Your father never complained.
He was solid & competent man.
While most people talk too much these days, your father truly was a quiet professional
While most people pretend, your father was the real deal
I'll never forget seeing him and the makeshift chapel before our last mission
No doubt he was praying for protection for you and for your mom
I remember your father telling us how proud he was of you and how much he loved you
I remember the day he died and how he died
He was a hero until his last breath
So when you miss him the most, give me a call
I understand how when you lose someone you love, everyday is memorial day
