This is the best tl;dr I could make, original

Night hadn't fallen; rather, particles from the fires in the Amazon rainforest had travelled to the heavily-populated city, turning everything gray. Summary Source FAQ Feedback Top keywords: fire#1 deaths#2 premature#3 Indigenous#4 particles#5
Since she had already been looking at the fires in the Amazon, she also wanted to understand how this phenomenon was affecting the health of the local Indigenous people.
Through a model that examines how air travels through the atmosphere - when there are and when there aren't fires - combined with demographic information from the Amazon basin and a formula about the impact of PM2.5 particles on premature deaths, Bonilla and her team concluded that those most at-risk populations are the Indigenous communities of the Amazon.
The figure just for those who are living in Indigenous territory was around 230 premature deaths.
To give another example, the data suggests that, between 2014 and 2019, exposure to smoke from forest fires represented almost 39,000 deaths throughout Brazil.
The study also says that, since 2002, the annual number of fires in the Amazon has twice exceeded the figure of 600,000, both in 2004 and 2007.

Just an observation I found interesting. Currently in the mid Atlantic we are dealing with the smoke from the Canadian forest fires. This has caused our air quality index to spike. I noticed today after taking a 80 mile round trip that I do regularly, I have seen my efficiency go down quite a bit. I believe the more dense smoke seems to be creating more friction. Has anyone else seen the same?

2023.06.08 20:20 jimbobbypaul Ranking the Top 131 FBS Programs of the Last 40 Years: 78. Navy
Main hub thread with the full 131 rankings
Anchors aweigh, my boys, anchors aweigh
Farewell to foreign shores, we sail at break of day, of day
Through our last night ashore, drink to the foam
Until we meet once more, here's wishing you a happy voyage home
Navy is one of the oldest football programs in the country, having fielded their first team in 1879. With that comes a history of excellence, as it should with the Navy, who as a program is top 25 in all-time wins for FBS schools, has 2 Heisman winners, and a national title in 1926. Quarterback Roger Staubach, known as “Captain America”, was the winner of the 1963 Heisman and is an NFL Hall of Famer, the only QB in history to achieve both feats.

- 220-256-1 record
- 0 conference titles
- 9-7 bowl record
- 2 consensus All-Americans
- 8 NFL players drafted
No conference titles? Navy’s bad! Kidding of course, they didn’t have a chance to win any as an independent until 2015 when they joined the AAC. As you can see on the list above, Navy’s clearly had some bad years, with a whopping 14 seasons of 3 or less wins. To make up for it, they’ve achieved some remarkable highs for a service academy, with 11 finishes inside my top 50. A 10-2 season in 2004 narrowly misses out on Navy’s top 5 seasons because of their 107th ranked strength of schedule that year. Despite some remarkable QB play in recent years from Keenan Reynolds and Malcolm Perry, the 2 consensus All-Americans are both from RB Napoleon McCallum in 1983 and 1985, who finished 6th and 7th in Heisman voting in those years, respectively. Speaking of Keenan Reynolds, he set the NCAA career record for rushing TDs in 2015, accumulating 88 in his 4 year career.
Top 5 Seasons Worst Season: 2001 (0-10 overall, Independent)
Navy gets a pass for 2001. 2 weeks into the season, the September 15th game against Northwestern was cancelled shortly after the 9/11 attacks. The Army-Navy game was more than a game this year, with President George W. Bush taking part in the on-field coin toss. Army prevailed 26-17 on the day. Navy LB Brian Stann ribbed that Navy only got pregame visits from President Bush and Senator John McCain, while Army received an impassioned speech from General Norman Schwarzkopf. The game finished off a stressful year for Navy, who fired head coach Charlie Weatherbie after an 0-7 start. On-field lows were a 7-70 loss to Georgia Tech, a loss to 3-9 Tulane, and of course the Army-Navy Game. Navy hired Paul Johnson for 2002, who’d turn around the program for good. If you’re an MMA fan, you probably recognize Brian Stann who I quoted above. Stann went on to become a successful UFC fighter and commentator, joining Fox Sports after his retirement from MMA in 2013. 5. 2013 (9-4 overall, Independent)
A season with many highs. A 3-1 start included a 41-35 win over Indiana and 28-10 over Air Force. After losing 2 straight to strong Duke and Toledo teams, Navy went 5-1 the rest of the regular season, only losing 34-38 to a Notre Dame team that finished in the top 25. Wins included 24-21 over Pitt, 58-52 in 3OT over a San Jose State team coming off an 11-2 year, and 34-7 in the Army-Navy Game. A perfect ground game of 366 rushing yards against Middle Tennessee in the bowl led to a 24-6 win to finish 9-4 in Navy’s second to last season as an Independent. QB Keenan Reynolds (more on him later) threw for 1000+ yards with 8 TD 2 INT, but most importantly ran for 1346 yards and 31 TD, setting an NCAA record for rushing TDs in a season by a QB. Reynolds also ran for 7 TD against San Jose State, an NCAA record. Outside of Reynolds, longtime New England Patriots long snapper Joe Cardona was also on this team, and didn’t have a bad snap all season long. 4. 1996 (9-3 overall, Independent)
Even for as bad as 2001 was, Charlie Weatherbie’s teams had their moments. A 5-1 start featured 3 wins over Power 6 teams: 10-6 over Rutgers, 64-27 over Duke, and 47-18 over Wake Forest. That set up a Shamrock Classic game in Ireland between Navy and Notre Dame. A 54-27 win for Notre Dame set a record for the longest winning streak over an annual opponent at 33 games. Unfazed, Navy won 3 more straight including a nice 36-26 win over Georgia Tech in Atlanta. But even so, Weatherbie’s teams…left a lot to be desired. Navy watched their 21-3 lead over Army evaporate by the end of the game, stopped at the goal line twice for a 28-24 Army victory. To be fair, this was one of Army’s best teams of the past few decades, and they finished ranked #25. Navy rebounded to beat Steve Mariucci’s Cal team in the Aloha Bowl 42-38 to finish 9-3. Navy OC Paul Johnson left to become Georgia Southern’s head coach, and would go on to perfect the triple option at Navy from 2002-07 and institute it at Georgia Tech from 2008-18. WR LeBron Butts (no relation to the basketball player) had 14 catches for 179 yards and 2 TD. 3. 2009 (10-4 overall, Independent)
Oh look, one of my all time favorite players, QB Ricky Dobbs. Dobbs was a steady work horse all season. He only averaged 3.6 yards per carry, but had the 3rd most carries in the nation with 315 and ran for 1203 yards with an NCAA QB record 27 TD. The record wouldn’t be broken until 2013 by Navy’s own Keenan Reynolds. Dobbs led a steady offense combined with a great defense (19.4 PPG allowed), leading to Navy’s 2nd double digit win season since 1905. Navy had a chance to tie #6 Ohio State with 2 minutes left, but their 2 point conversion attempt was returned by OSU for 2 pts themselves, making the final score 27-31. A 14-27 loss two weeks later to Pitt turned out to be another quality loss, with Pitt going on to finish 10-3 and #15. A 10-4 final record included wins such as 16-13 over 8-5 Air Force, 38-35 over 8-5 SMU, 13-10 over Wake Forest, 17-3 over Army, 35-13 in the bowl over 8-5 Missouri, and the pièce de résistance, 23-21 over #19 Notre Dame in South Bend. Previously on a 43-year losing streak to the Irish heading into 2007, this was now the 2nd time in 3 years Navy had beaten Notre Dame, previously unthinkable. 2. 2019 (11-2 overall, 7-1 American)
After Keenan Reynolds left for the NFL, the QB position had big shoes to fill. Following a stopgap 9-5 record in 2016, 2017 arrived. Zach Abey took the majority of snaps, but Malcolm Perry was too talented to keep off the field, far and away the best athlete on the team. Perry had a monstrous year with 9 starts at slot back and 3 at QB, rushing for 1182 yards and 11 TD on 8.6(!) YPC, and was the team’s 2nd leading receiver with 13 catches for 303 yards and 2 TD. Perry started 5 games at QB in 2018, but dealt with injuries en route to a 3-10 season. That led to a mysterious 2019, with Navy picked 5th in the 6-team AAC West Division.
A 2-1 start showed potential, with a 42-10 win over East Carolina and close 23-35 loss to one of the conference favorites in Memphis. A 34-25 win over an Air Force team that would finish 11-2 showed Navy was back to their winning ways, with a real chance at a bowl as long as Perry stayed healthy. Navy reeled off blowout win after blowout win, eventually getting up to #23 before losing to #16 Notre Dame 20-52. Now at 7-2, Navy still had a shot at making the AAC title game. Perry showed up big against #25 SMU, rushing for 195 yards and throwing for 162 in a 35-28 win. After beating Houston 56-41, Navy just needed Memphis to drop one game, but the Tigers won out to make the AAC title game at 11-1. Navy played Army in the last game as usual, and Perry WENT NUCLEAR. He didn’t throw a single pass, rushing for 304 yards on 29 carries with 2 TD in a 31-7 win. In the bowl against 8-4 Kansas State, Perry again went for 200+ on the ground, winning 20-17 on a last second FG. Navy finished the year #20 in the country.
Perry went off all year long, winning AAC Offensive POTY with 1084 passing yards 7 TD 3 INT with 2017 rushing yards and 21 TD on 6.8 YPC. Perry legitimately was one of the quickest athletes in the country, if you watch his highlights he looks like a quicker but slower Kyler Murray. Because of this he was drafted in the 7th round by the Miami Dolphins as a WR, and has caught 9 passes for 92 yards and 1 TD in the NFL. 1. 2015 (11-2 overall, 7-1 American)
2015 was a magical year not just for Navy fans, but for college football fans following Navy. QB Keenan Reynolds was the darling of football, and went down as arguably the greatest option QB in college football history. Reynolds became one of football’s biggest stories as Navy kept winning throughout the year, starting 9-1 with wins such as 33-11 over 8-6 Air Force, 29-17 over 8-5 USF, and 45-20 over #13 Memphis. Navy got as high as #15 in the nation and was one of the favorites to earn the Group of 5’s spot in a New Years 6 bowl. After a loss to Houston the dream ended, but they still had the Army-Navy game to tend to. The game earned its biggest rating this century with a 5.1 overnight, mostly due to Reynolds’ star power. Reynolds finished 5th in Heisman voting, and when he wasn’t invited to the ceremony, people protested and lobbied for changing the invitation rules. A 44-28 win in the bowl over 8-4 Pitt capped Navy’s first ever 11 win season, and their highest finish in over 50 years at #18.
Navy announced the retirement of Reynolds’ #19 jersey after the season, joining a short list of Roger Staubach (12), Joe Bellino (27), and Napoleon McCallum (30). Navy’s 36 wins in Reynolds’ 4 years tied the class of 1909 for the most ever by a 4-year Navy squad. Reynolds finished as the NCAA’s all-time leading rushing TD leader with 88. In 2015 he threw for 1203 yards 8 TD 1 INT with 1373 rushing yards and 24 TD. This was the 3rd straight season he finished top 5 in rushing TDs in the country. He earned 3rd Team All-American status, won the AAC Offensive POTY, and won the James E. Sullivan Award given to the most outstanding collegiate or Olympic athlete in the United States. After the season, he was drafted in the 6th round by the Baltimore Ravens, the first Navy QB drafted since Roger Staubach in 1964.
What do you remember about Keenan Reynolds and that 2015 season? How about Malcolm Perry? Who was the better passer, runner, and overall player between the two? Is Reynolds the greatest option QB of all time, even over Tommie Frazier? What other Navy moments/games/plays/players do you remember? How does Navy look to fare in the upcoming seasons? Does Ken Niumatalolo get enough credit in the college football media for what he’s done at Navy? What else is on your mind about Navy?

2023.06.08 20:19 banned-from-rbooks I Have No Mouth And I Must Scream - LGS Edition
Hey there, I’m a longtime player that recently returned to the game after about a 10-year hiatus.
After being traumatized by the experience that is the online discord Roll20 community, I decided to try my luck at some good ol’ fashioned in-person D&D.
My latest online campaign hadn’t been going well for a few sessions after the DM took control of a dragon we were supposed to fight and started using it to awkwardly flirt with the only female player while the rest of us spent literal hours perpetually failing our saves against a fear aura with a seemingly unbeatable DC. The female player’s druid was okay though with her 28 Wisdom, and wearing enough artifact-tier magic items to probably qualify as an actual construct.
Anyway, there were probably some red flags I should have picked up on earlier… But by this point my standards were so low that as long as the DM could demonstrate some frontal lobe development and an absolutely basic understanding of the rules, that was good enough for me.
Regardless, all of this is irrelevant to my current predicament.
A bit of background on me. Most of my experience comes from playing 3.5 in college. The culture was a bit different back then, with less focus on player power fantasy and more on brutal campaigns with tactically difficult encounters (at least that’s how we played)... This will be somewhat relevant later.
Anyway, on with the story.
Our tale begins at the local game store with an experienced, older DM. He’s been playing D&D for much longer than me, and I get excited as we start talking about 3.5. The current campaign is 5e, which I don’t like as much, but everyone plays it and it’s fine.
We start in a default Forgotten Realms setting at level 3. The other players are: Gnoll Rogue, Orc Fighter, Halfling Cleric, Human Bard and me (Human Sorcerer).
We roll for stats, which is a red flag, and of course almost everyone cheats, but whatever… That’s just a given. I put a 16 in CHA and garbage for almost everything else, while everyone except the Bard has like, at least 2 17+’s and everything else above 13. Strangely, the DM doesn’t seem to even notice or care.
Regardless, the first session actually goes well. We introduce ourselves and meet up to guard an outpost on the edge of town from bandit raids, and fight some easy combats.
Anyway, session two comes along and the problems start.
We are wandering through the woods and suddenly get ambushed and put in an impossible combat. They have at least 5 mounted fighters, a cleric, a handful of archers and an arcane caster that nukes half the group with a fireball on round two, downing two players. They also have a ton of cover because we accidentally stumbled upon their secret camp or something, while we have none.
I’m ready for the TPK when the bandits surround us and demand our surrender, which of course we do. They say they’ll let us live if we give them all our gold, so… That happens.
We tend to our wounds and stumble back to the outpost, report our failure and everyone generally feels like shit… But the outpost commander pays us each about half of what we lost for ‘finding the location of their camp’, which feels lame, but okay.
And then the game continues… And pretty much every combat from then on starts to turn into a repeat of this scenario.
I quickly notice that monsters have widely inconsistent stat blocks. One encounter we’ll fight 5 goblins that go down without a fight - and the next they’ll have multiple attacks, magic weapons and armor, absurd saves, advantage on pretty much everything, 30+ hit points each, etc.
We actually had a combat where I upcasted my Sleep to second level and affected literally 0 goblins. The DM said they worked for a powerful wizard who gave them focuses to make them immune. I then wasted a turn casting Web in an advantageous spot, and all 8 goblins passed their save without fail (except for one) over three rounds… Which is pretty much statistically impossible even for creatures with moderately high reflex saves.
To make things worse, the encounters seemed to be specifically tailored to counter our party. Whenever we found a strategy that worked, the monsters magically either spontaneously happened to have a solution, or the next fight was even worse.
One time the entire party was routed fighting a bunch of dumb melee skeletons, and so I made myself levitate 15-feet into the air and blasted them with cantrips until they were all dead. The next fight, the skeletons were flying.
Another time, the Fighter ate an attack of opportunity from a large Owlbear so the Bard could get out of melee, only to find out that this Owlbear had multiple reactions for some reason.
Our summons would also be turned against us by ‘powerful wizards’ in the area, and on more than one occasion, when we were winning, a group of enemies were straight up teleported into the middle of our group from outside of combat and got a full round of attacks against us.
I think some of us were suspicious that the DM was just straight up cheating on rolls as well, but a few players were unfamiliar with the rules so they kinda just trusted everything. I started writing down how much HP each monster required to take down, the number of passed and failed saves, etc., and yeah - it became obvious pretty quickly, I think, that the DM was just fudging everything on his end.
And look, I’m no stranger to impossibly difficult combat or campaigns - but at least in those cases the DM was playing by the rules, so even losing could still be fun… But when my actions have no actual impact on the outcome of the battle because nothing is real, I might as well do nothing at all.
But the DM never actually killed anyone, although sometimes I kind of wish he would kill me.
The typical combat would usually go something like this: some weak monsters show up, we start fighting, are suddenly ambushed by much stronger enemies out of nowhere, which then either let us escape or just leave once we are dying and trying to escape.
And the constantly making us feel like shit extended to the story as well. There was no overarching plot. We weren’t the heroes, or even important at all, but just a ragtag band of irrelevant drifters barely scraping together enough gold to not starve.
Not only were we complete losers that could only succeed at quests by getting our asses handed to us and returning with ‘information’, but every decision we made came back to bite us in the ass.
One time we helped a poor villager woman find her son who was lost in the woods, only to be hunted down in a completely different province by a band of extremely powerful cultists who had marked the kid as a sacrifice.
Also, the Gnoll had been eating the corpses of our enemies and generally acting like a murder hobo… And originally our party had a problem with it, but the player got very defensive OOC whenever our characters (IC) tried to stop him and claimed we were ‘ruining his RP’. So I think we all kinda gave up and just ignored him.
So yeah, it turns out he ate the son of some influential noble and we were hunted down by extremely powerful bounty hunters (we were level 4 and they had a wizard who could cast 6th level spells). We frantically escaped and managed to find a body part of said noble. The DM graciously let us resurrect the kid at a church, but we had to fork over literally all of our money and almost every magic item we had earned by that point.
So on top of everything, the party was starting to fall apart. The Gnoll wanted to kill and eat just about everyone, which the Orc thought was funny… But it also made doing any sort of quest just about impossible.
By level 5, we started breaking out into PVP about once a session (usually everyone vs. the Gnoll/Orc)… In response, the Gnoll and Orc (who were newer players) started asking the DM for extremely powerful abilities (that were either incredibly vague or straight up didn’t make sense within the context of the rules) or insane equipment that they ‘should’ have because of their race/background/heritage or whatever just to get an edge - which, to his credit, the DM denied (although the Orc randomly found a +1 Flametongue Greatsword in a cave somewhere).
I do not know why I am still in this game. The DM is nice, friendly and has a very passive demeanor. He also clearly has a very deep understanding of the game across multiple editions, so I’m honestly mystified as to what he is getting out of this - as he doesn’t appear to take any kind of pleasure in just torturing us. He keeps telling us that the early game is ‘hard’ because we are just starting out and making a name for ourselves, but it never gets any easier.
I still have fun hanging out with some of the players and interacting with NPCs, but any time it comes to combat, I keep hoping in vain that this time will be different only to be slapped in the face again.
Anyway, I feel like now I know how the humans in that Ellison novel who were eternally tormented by AM must have felt.
Admittedly though, it’s still a better experience than anything I’ve found in the online Roll20 community.
Please help me.

| || |
Wednesday June 7 around 10:30 am outside of the Dollar Tree off Whitemud & 17 st (by Superstore) I parked and saw of all things a BERNESE MOUNTAIN DOG left in a black suv with 2 whole windows cracked a couple of inches. It had its nose right to the opening like it was trying to get cool air. submitted by I_dont_like_pickles to Edmonton [link] [comments]
A quick google search told me to call 911 so I did. Unfortunately the driver arrived back before emergency services got there. The smug look on her face gave the impression that it’s not the first time someone has confronted her about this. All she had to say was “He’s fine”…I asked her how she’d like to sit in there like that and she claimed oh, she had, and he’s fine…Most likely with A/C on rather than a fur cat. I should’ve asked her if it would’ve been “fine” to leave the toddler with her like that.
Granted it was “only” 18 but there were no clouds or shade at all, and the temperature was only going to be going up. It was already uncomfortably warm in my light colored vehicle and that was with windows open.
DON’T LEAVE YOUR ANIMALS IN CARS IN SUMMER!!
I just wish I’d have gotten there to call sooner so I could’ve seen that smug look wiped off her face when she came out to firemen breaking into her car. 😡

| || | submitted by YepYepNop to Eldar [link] [comments]
I’ve seen a lot of talk on the Warhammer subs recently about fate dice and the banning of Eldar by budgeaters, and while I do think the ban is very trigger happy and shouldn’t have happened, I want to talk about potentially how strong fate dice are with devastating wounds. I want to take a look at probabilities we can expect to get sixes in the fate dice pool, and whether or not the play patterns being described are reasonable or likely to occur.
Fishing for sixes
First off, how many dice can we expect to get in our initial pool? I’ve seen a lot of people defending the Eldar say it’s two, but once you start rerolling dice, you can push it much higher. To test this, I’m running trails in python and If we choose to reroll the dice just once, we can get at least two 6s 67% of the time. If we choose to reroll until we have 8 dice left, we’ll have two 6s 97% of the time, a virtual guarantee. 8 seems arbitrary, but it is a good place to stop for the sake of this experiment, since going any lower doesn’t significantly increase the chances of getting what we are looking for. But we don’t want two sixes, we want as many as possible. If we stay at 8 as the floor, how do our odds change as we fish for more?
From the graph, we can see that the probabilities start falling very quickly. Once we start reject all pools that don’t have at least as many 6s as we are looking for, We can be reasonably certain to get at least 3 6s, but any higher then that and we are just throwing away dice, as we’re odds on to start with 8 random dice. We can improve this however, once we bring Eldrad in to the mix. Since Eldrad allows us to start with 15 fate dice rather then 12, we not only get more rerolls, but higher quality ones as well:
From the above, we can be fairly confident that rerolling all pools without 4 6s in the will get us 3 sixes with near certainty, and we can be reasonably confident in fishing for 4 of them. For the sake of argument, we’ll say that a reasonable strategy for maximising 6s is to run Eldran and reroll the fate dice pool and you can expect to get 4 6s about 75% of the time.
Fate Dice in Game
Now we have our four 6s, How do they play in game? The biggest issue a lot of people are hyper focused on is the profile of the D-cannon. With devastating wounds and D6+2 damage, the worry is that you can dump 6s into the wound and damage rolls to pump out mortal wounds with indirect fire into anything that come in range. Even if we just spend 6s on the wound roll, and assume that we’ll being firing indirectly, that’s 8.25 mortal wounds on average every time it fires, which is a fair amount. If we have a Farseer and a guardian squad on an objective with it to generate free 6s and extra dice, they can blow up pretty much anything that gets in range, and spend 6s as needed to delete pretty much anything.
6s aren’t free though. As we established earlier, there’s only a 75% we get 4 in our pool, which isn't a lot, or a guarentee. You can’t just spam out mortal wounds right? You might be aware of the exhibition match between Eldar and imperial guard that showed of their rules last week. The Eldar player mentioned that the guard player tried to move a unit in range of his fire prism, but after it was explained they could overwatch, sub in a natural 6 and flip another dice to a 6 with the near by Farseer, they were odds on to blow up the unit. Naturally, the guard player decided to move somewhere else, but the Eldar player mentioned they never actually intended to fire the overwatch, even if they had moved in range.
Threat of activation is a very powerful thing. If you have a reasonable amount of 6s in your pool, the game can become warped around units with profiles like the D-cannon. Lets not forget the wraithguard, their war construct ability means with a few 6s your opponent can’t move within 16 inches and shoot them without getting deleted in turn if you have fate dice to invest. However, there’s also a burden on the Eldar player to use the dice responsibly. Its Ultimately going to come down to how expensive farseers are I think. Two with a squad of guardians each
- Interaction with devastating wounds/overwatch is very strong.
- If you prioritise 6s, you can reasonably expect 3 6s in your starting pool, can almost gaurentee it by taking Eldran.
- Fate Dice are strongest in your pool as they can threaten any number of things, once spent your army is a lot less threatening. Farseers will be likely be auto includes regardless of cost.
- Managing your dice correctly will make or break the army. 3/4 + your Farseers in your starting pool gives you a very large margin of error, but is by no means free. They're strongest when used in multiples, which you can;t do with impunity.

2023.06.08 20:17 BilledIn Is it ok to grease your “ non grease-able” ball joints and ends via needle adapter with grease gun?
Ran into a old mechanic the other day. Told him I changed my entire suspension on my vw on my own. He told me a trick to keep it lasting is to grease all the ball joints that don’t have zerks with a needle, then cover the pin hole with high heat silicone adhesive, then after spray with 305 to ensure there’s no air coming in so the oil doesn’t eventually leak out.
Has anyone else attempted this before?

2023.06.08 20:17 wpd18 Is it me or the pump? Site leaking issues
I started on T:Slim last year around this time and was using the Autosoft 90 insertion sets in the beginning months. If I was lucky they lasted the full 3 days before leaking, most times it would make it about 36 hours.
Made a post here and many suggested switching to the TruSteel. Did that and it was going well for a few weeks and now I’m back to the same leaking issues. I really like the TruSteel and would like to keep using it but I’m not sure how to proceed.
So my question is, is it me that is causing the issue with the sites? Or is it the infusion set?
Couple of facts/concerns that play into the decision:
- 20+ year diabetic and always used my stomach for pump sites. Maybe it’s too much scar tissue?
- Is there a deeper version or “athletic” version of the TruSteel that is not as prone to leaks? I find even trying to do a few simple rounds of sit-ups or a 30 minute workout leads to leaking.
- I am losing trust and constantly watching the site for leaks instead of being hands off.
- Sites are always shaved and use IV Prep prior to insertion. Rotated from side to side regularly.
- Not a fan of the 30 or 45 degree infusion set options so I’m limited in 90 degree choices.
Any help or suggestions would be amazing. Thank you!

With the air quality I’m a little reluctant.
Starting in Pittsburgh Friday evening, might just turn around Saturday morning if it’s bad.
Anyone else been on the trail the last few days? How’s the air?

So, I work in NJ and was wondering if there's any protocol for the smoke issue going on right now. They put me as a garden cashier for 2-3 hours every morning so i'm out there, with a mask now, and feel like I shouldn't even be open with the quality. They say it's better but the number is still very high and IDK how safe I feel working for hours outside in that quality. Is there any options for me or do I just have to suffer?

Invited wife to share home app. She’s never used it before and she’s running an iPhone Xr, a 2 year old iPad and a 2014 MacBook Air. submitted by Fookes74 to HomeKit [link] [comments]
No invite received on her devices. On opening iPhone (and subsequently the other two devices) they’re all say with the following on screen and it’s been like that for over 24 hours.
Tried usual reboots - didn’t work. Tried toggling off keychain, toggling off home app (both from iCloud) retoggling keychain and then adding Home app back to iCloud via Home app but that makes no difference.
Can anyone suggest how to sort this? It’s appallingly bad at the best of times but this is a new low for the Home app - at least for us!

2023.06.08 20:12 craigerator1979 OmniPod Insurance Question
My 12-year old son is about a year into his type 1 diagnosis. He's doing great. Apparently our insurance thinks he's doing too well and I am trying to figure out how common our scenario is. When he started coming out of the honeymoon phase earlier this year, he started having to take shots more frequently to keep his blood sugar in range. Frankly, we work hard on helping him count carbs, make good choices and administer insulin with a pen. It's working for us, but he hates the 4-plus shots a day.
We started talking to his endo about pumps and he really liked the concept of the Omnipod. We ended up being denied by our insurance carrier, Anthem because they are requiring an A1C of 7.1 or higher. He's about a full point less than that, which is a good problem to have. Our Doctor wrote a wonderful appeal letter and our benefit advocate at work reached out to the insurance company, but insurance won't budge on that number.
Our endo is really flabbergasted. She said she has never seen that sort of denial. Has anyone else had this sort of denial from insurance? Any tips on how to fight it?

With standby coming, I am looking for a new MagSafe stand that will charge my iPhone. Apple Watch, and AirPod Pro 2 at once. I have the ESR Cryoboost now but it does not have official MagSafe and I am worried if I leave my phone on it for long periods of time that it will damage the battery.
