What You Get: MODULE 1: The Presuppositional Playbook Psychology The most fundamental difference in face to face, vs virtual selling is the absolute need to have the prospect be pushing for the sale. They must be the one driving for the solution. They have to want it more than you do. They have to be more engaged in the process than they are face to face. When you sell virtually the more you talk, the worse your close rates will be. When you are sitting with a prospect together, it’s easy to have the momentum of the meeting and the relationship you’ve developed together carry the sale to the finish line. This does not happen virtually. There is a distance, a void between you and the prospect that is easy for them to take your information and disappear, taking it to another advisor they know better. Presuppositional Selling does two important things. First, it structures the sales interaction in such a way that the prospect discovers intrisically the problems, pains, gains, and desire for a solution. One of the most powerful ways P2 selling works is helping the prospect see what they have not seen before. It changes context. It changes the frame. The Crucial 1st Appointment The first appointment in the leverage point that determines the success or failure of your entire sales process. Do a poor first appointment by talking too much, or ‘spilling your candy in the lobby’ and you’re doomed. Prospects won’t show up on the next call, and they will be lost and gone forever. There is an art and a science to doing the first appointment effectively and you’ll see exactly how to do it right. It starts with our 13 steps first appointment playbook. In this playbook you’ll get:
  • How to steamroll the first 6 common objections you may receive at the beginning of a first appointment.
  • How to create authority in the first 30 seconds of a first appointment, by doing the EXACT opposite of what your prospect expects…and what every other salesperson does.
  • The Credibility Transfer: How to use “borrowed credibility” to get your prospects to trust you—even if they don’t know who you are.
  • The PLI “Power Switch” Principle that flips the power dynamic, so YOU are perceived to have the power (and not the prospect).
  • The One Eyed Man principle that STOPS the prospect from treating you like a salesperson.
  • RAPID SUCCESS IN JUST 20 MINUTES: Learn how to do a first appointment in just 20 minutes over the phone, no technology needed.
  • The Decision Matrix: This is the most critical part of the entire sale…and it’s made right here. (Most producers hit only 1 out of the 4 keys to the decision matrix and it costs them sales constantly.)
  • STOP THE HATERS: How to ensure competitors, incumbents, and other ‘characters’ don’t blow up your sales with bad advice to your clients. (PLEASE, if you do nothing else, learn this critical component to stop losing deals needlessly!)
  • The “golden thread of motivation”: This is the thread that holds the entire sale together. When a prospect forgets why they called, why they are meeting with you, or why they are buying, you will fail in closing the sale.
  • The “Fried Chicken Rule”that ensures your prospect is engaged and selling themselves, not tuning out.
  • How to set ROCK SOLID second appointments to ensure you never get a ‘no show’ on your next appointment.
  • The SOLUTION step: How to ensure you are sharing just enough to whet their appetite and create burning curiosity for the next appointment to get them coming back for more, (while being 100% compliant!)

2023.06.05 08:37 Nat1IrregularFocus Friend w/ Bed Bugs - Action Plan to help?...

Has anyone ever SUCCESSFULLY beaten bed bugs themselves?
We're trying to help a friend deal with it, who has no budget for an exterminator (well, ANOTHER one). Their landlord absolutely will not help. They've tried on MULTIPLE occasions and the landlord is convinced our friends brought them in.
Regardless of whose fault it is, the bed bugs are there. We're trying to brainstorm how to get rid of them since the most recent pesticide guy failed.
The cheapest option we can think to do is a huge undertaking, but I think it WOULD work....
What we know:
For the movable items and furniture:
For the apartment unit itself (do simultaneously):
Ignition Temperatures of common items are usually more than 400 degrees, which we cant hope to achieve even if we were trying:
If the apartment was built to NV code, the temperatures we need should not be an issue, as follows:

Chapter 8: Interior Finishes, Nevada Building Code 2018 › viewer › chapter › interior-finishes Interior wall and ceiling finish materials shall be classified for fire performance ... to room temperatures of 200°F (93°C) for not less than 30 minutes.

803.14 Stability

Interior finish materials regulated by this chapter shall be applied or otherwise fastened in such a manner that such materials will not readily become detached where subjected to room temperatures of 200°F (93°C) for not less than 30 minutes.

Do you think I am missing anything?

I am beginning to think that this is a lot less dangerous than I thought... Unconventional, but not quite DANGEROUS given the ignition temperatures of most materials.
The landlord is giving these poor people no other choice. Plus they have a newborn at home as part of their family of 6.
I'm over it. If the landlord doesn't want to help with the cost to exterminate, then what option is left???

Ford Explorer 2012 XLT V6 started throwing this error abruptly and if the car is in motion the check engine light turns on. The car shakes a bit when in idle. The car's currently parked, and I'm not using it.
My question, is it OK two swap the coil from a good cylinder to a bad cylinder and check if it's in fact the coil that's the problem, or should I buy a new coil and test with a new one?
I'm comfortable swapping out the coils, but want to make sure I don't harm the car.

2023.06.05 08:31 mmmmshelbs Car stolen, cops found car and arrested the guy, when I went to pick up the car there was heroin left inside

So my car was stolen on Friday night and Saturday morning once I noticed it was missing I filed a police report. A few hours later, they found the car roughly 3 hours south of where I lived. The cops told me that they arrested the driver but his girlfriend fled. They had my car towed to a local spot and I went to pick it up today. car was fine, thank God, but they had thrown out all of my stuff and while going through what was left I found two containers with heroin inside, tinfoil with residue, a crack pipe, and a knife, which appeared to be brand new.
The lady at the tow yard gave us a trash bag and we threw everything out at their dumpster. I didn’t feel comfortable driving back home three hours with heroin in my car so this felt like the only option
Now that I am home and had some time to think it’s insane to me that the cops looked and told me they found my wallet, but just didn’t see anything that I found. The heroin was literally in the side door pocket right under the handle, first thing I saw when I opened the car door. I’m not sure if the people that took my car were arrested for anything else, but it just feels very wrong that so many illegal substances were just left for me to pick up
I want to file a complaint against the officer that found my car. The first time I spoke to him, he called me convinced that I was the lady that fled and accused me of lying when I told him that I was the person whose car was stolen and he was very nasty to me which was bad enough. I don’t understand why he thought the phone number that was attached to the police report was also the thief but I guess I can’t expect common sense. Then I find out he left heroin and crack in my car and now I have a big problem with his “work” today.
If I were to file a complaint, would I be in any sort of trouble for either throwing out the substances or not taking them to the police? And is that a reasonable thing to file a report for? I’ve never had any sort of legal or substance problems, so I am just very unsure about the proper course of action and am paranoid about things in general after this. Any advice or suggestions would be greatly appreciated
Edit: also my therapist is very upset with me after I told him my friend kept a crown we found… he threw it away later but are there any implications if they just left it? He thinks it’s gang related but I think it’s just a random party city purchase? Any insight would be appreciated since I don’t see what the problem is

2023.06.05 08:29 IneverGiveUp01 A Fresh Perspective: Could Rational Recovery be Your Turning Point?

Hello everyone,

Imagine being trapped in a destructive cycle for eight long years, knowing you need to escape but feeling utterly powerless to do so. That was my reality. I'm a 26-year-old man who, from the tender age of 12, found himself caught in the relentless grip of pornography and masturbation addiction.

By 18, I was painfully aware of the damage it was causing and desperate to break free. I tried everything – NoFap, meditation, sports, cold showers, even punishing myself, but to no avail. It felt like my addiction was an unshakeable opponent. But then, something changed. I discovered a strategy that changed my life. If you're struggling, I want to share this with you...

Caught in the grip of this addiction, I would spend an average of seven hours per day, even peaking at thirteen hours sometimes. The toll of this habit was heavy, affecting my personal, professional, and social life severely. Yet everything changed when I discovered Jack Trimpey's Rational Recovery method.

While his book provided me with crucial insights, it was his comprehensive AVRT Demonstration, where Trimpey guided an alcohol addict towards permanent abstinence, that truly filled the missing pieces in my fight against addiction. The Rational Recovery method fundamentally shifted my perspective towards addiction, helping me to recognize and silence the voice of my brain (the Beast) pushing me to consume. Today, I want to share my experience, hoping it could be an effective solution for many of you. You can access the entire demonstration at the end in the 'Useful Resources' section.

Understanding Addiction and Navigating this Guide

Let's talk about what addiction really is. Addiction isn't about the behavior itself, but rather the desire to escape pain and seek a better life. It is marked by ambivalence, a feeling of being torn between two minds. Overcoming addiction involves breaking free from the grip of pleasure and reclaiming control over oneself.

Before I delve into how I applied the Rational Recovery method and the results I got, I want to pose a simple but powerful question: If I placed a big red button in front of you that, when pressed, would instantly eradicate your addiction, would you press it?

If your answer is 'yes', then you have all the reasons you need to quit. I've been where you are now, writing pages upon pages of reasons to stop, yet relapsing despite knowing how harmful it was. It's important to recognize when a pattern becomes harmful, it's time to stop.

As you explore this guide, remember the importance of keeping an open mind. Let's borrow some wisdom from Mark Twain, who once said, “It ain’t what you don’t know that gets you into trouble. It’s what you know for sure that just ain’t so.” It's a nod to the importance of being receptive to new ideas and methods. This guide may offer a different approach, but embracing it might bring about the change you're seeking.

What is AVRT?

AVRT (Addictive Voice Recognition Technique) is a transformative strategy that I've found invaluable in my journey to overcoming addiction. This technique helps you recognize and differentiate yourself from the 'addictive voice', the part of your primitive brain structure that fuels your addiction.

Think of AVRT as your personal defense mechanism that works under any circumstance, regardless of your emotional state – be it sadness, anger,boredom, loneliness, or stress. The aim here isn't to suppress these emotions, but rather to stay in control of your actions, no matter what you're feeling.

The 'addictive voice' – which we'll call the 'beast' – is a sneaky internal saboteur. It's the part of you that wants to continue with the harmful habit, despite you consciously knowing it's not beneficial. AVRT is about learning to separate this beast from your own true will, thus empowering you to reclaim your life.

The power of AVRT lies in this distinction between you and the beast. Once you master this technique, you'll learn to reject the rationalizations and temptations that originate from the beast. The dissociation from the beast is what makes it possible to make a firm, irrevocable commitment to quit your addiction. By not identifying with the beast, you can prevent yourself from suffering commonly associated with resisting addiction.

In essence, AVRT isn't about fighting or resisting; it's about recognizing, dissociating, and reclaiming control of your life.

What is the "beast"?

The "beast" is a term coined by the Rational Recovery method to denote the part of your brain pushing you towards your addiction. We call it the Beast because, like a wild, uncontrollable animal, it cares about nothing but fulfilling its need. It is a cunning inner voice, whispering that you need to engage in porn and masturbation to feel satisfied, relieved, or happy. This voice, often referred to as the Addictive Voice (AV), can be quite deceptive. It might paint you a picture of an enticing scene, produce alluring sounds, offer a moment of relief, or even present a false promise of control—"Just be more careful next time."

This beast manipulates you with excuses, deceptive emotions, and outright lies to make you succumb to your addiction. But let's make one thing clear: the beast is not your friend. It's your worst enemy. It's a parasitic entity that has latched onto your life, thriving on your addictive behavior. Like every living thing, it fears its end, and that end comes when you stop feeding the addiction. It has no regard for your well-being, your relationships, your life goals, or your health. Only its survival matters.

As you read through this guide, it's crucial to remain aware of the Beast's interference. Remember, the Beast manifests as a voice in your head or as an emotion, pushing you towards addictive thoughts and actions. You might experience feelings of resistance, discomfort, anger, fear, anxiety, or even a cringe reaction. These are the Beast's attempts to disrupt your progress.

While the Beast can attempt to manipulate your thoughts and emotions, it does not and cannot control your actions. It's your survival instincts that the Beast taps into, but your ability to make decisions, to govern your actions, thoughts, and emotions is uniquely yours.

The Beast may present itself in thoughts like, "This is too difficult to understand," "This won't work for me," or "I'm an exception to this method." Understand that these thoughts are not your own, but the Beast's desperate attempts to maintain control.

In its relentless quest for satisfaction, the beast views everything, including you, as expendable. It's the embodiment of your addiction, caring for nothing but its next fix. It's deaf to reason, blind to consequences, and immune to remorse.

If this description resonates with you, don't panic. You're not 'sick.' It's merely an error of association made by your body - an error in the script, so to speak. It mistakenly believes that this addictive behavior is as vital for your survival as breathing or eating.

Take these moments of resistance as signs that you are on the right track. You're threatening the Beast's existence, and it's trying to fight back. Recognize these voices for what they are, continue moving forward, and know that each step brings you closer to reaffirming your control and freedom from addiction.

[How to Proceed]

Recognition Technique

Let me share an effective exercise, adapted from the Rational Recovery book, that could help you end your porn and masturbation addiction right now.

Start by observing your thoughts and feelings about watching porn or masturbating, both positive and negative. The thoughts and feelings that encourage continued use represent your Addictive Voice (AV), while those advocating for abstinence represent the real you.

When you learn to identify and understand your AV, it becomes an easily defeated foe causing you to indulge. All it craves is pleasure. The main tactic of the Beast is to seize control of the pronoun 'I'. It will try to convince you by saying things like "I want to watch porn" or "I need pornography ".

However, you can effectively counter this strategy. By simply adding a 't' and shifting the 'I' to 'It', you can remind yourself that these thoughts are not truly yours, but are the Beast's manipulations. So the sentences become, "It wants to watch porn" or "It needs pornography ".

By changing "I" to "It", you dissociate from the discomfort or distress. Yes, it's that simple, placing it squarely on the Beast instead of yourself. It's crucial to recognize that these feelings are the Beast's attempts to coerce you back into addiction.

Now, tell yourself, "I will never consume porn or masturbate again", and listen for any negative reactions – this is your AV responding. Conversely, if you think, "I will consume porn or masturbate whenever I please," any pleasant feelings that arise are also your AV asserting control.

This recognition technique dispels short-term desire, making abstinence effortless. Complete separation of 'you' from 'it' results in complete recovery and hope for a better life.

Picture the AVRT technique as a form of gardening. The Addictive Voice is the weed trying to overtake your garden and sapping nutrients from the other plants. Recognizing the weed for what it is and uprooting it preserves your garden's health. Similarly, identifying and acting against your Addictive Voice safeguards a healthy and fulfilling life free from addiction.

Shifting Technique

Shifting is another powerful technique to help you dissociate from the beast of addiction. The idea is to alternate between viewing your addiction from the perspective of the beast and your own.

When viewing addiction through the Beast's eyes, you visualize what it craves the most about the addictive behavior and imagine the associated pleasure for a few minutes. It will express sentiments like "I want this now!" or "Please give it to me!", and you may start to feel the beast getting excited, happy, or impatient.

Then, shift to your perspective and reflect on the pain and negative impact the addiction has on you and those around you. Allow yourself feelings of disgust. Let your own feelings now take over, and you will find that your Beast withdraws and you feel either neutral or put off. This back-and-forth process allows you to dissociate from the Beast.

Think of Shifting as toggling between two TV channels: one projects a seductive yet distorted image of addiction, while the other reveals the harsh reality of its damage.

Introducing the "Big Plan"

The idea of the Big Plan in Rational Recovery is to make a personal commitment to lifelong abstinence from addiction. This commitment, for me, took the form of the decisive statement, "I will never consume porn or masturbate again". It involves pinpointing a day and an hour for your turning point. For me, that was a Sunday at 12am. This moment represents a clear and definitive end to your addictive behavior and the start of a new chapter in your life. You can decide to commit either immediately after going through this post or by specifying your day and hour. It's entirely your choice, and we'll discuss this in more depth later.

Your Power Over the Beast

The Beast, despite its intimidating name, is in fact harmless. It may try to coerce, manipulate, and instill fear, but it is important to remember that it is powerless without your consent. It cannot force you to return to the addictive behavior; only you can make that decision. In fact, you are the main authority, the one in charge, and it's the Beast that fears you.

The Beast is aware of your power and control, and it's terrified of it. It knows that you can shatter its illusions in a snap, without any difficulty. You're the one who makes the call, not the Beast, and it fears your unyielding decision to quit the addiction forever.

Its tactics may often involve fear. It's like the Beast is pointing a gun at you, but the truth is, its gun is empty. It's just a bluff, an illusion. You know it, and the Beast knows it too. It's simply trying to maintain its influence by resorting to fear tactics, but you can see through its lies.

"Don't trust yourself in tempting're not strong enough yet." – The Beast's voice:

The Beast tries to maintain control by suggesting certain places, events, or people will trigger a relapse. You might hear it whisper, "You can't go to that event, you might relapse," or "Avoid that location, it's too risky." This is simply the Beast's tactic to keep a hold on you, aiming to make you believe you're not completely in control.

By simply recognizing it for what it is - a tactic of the Beast to undermine your confidence - you can dismiss these fear tactics and reaffirm your control.

What if I Lose Control?

The Beast within you is a cunning entity, ever ready to exploit your moments of doubt and vulnerability. It whispers falsehoods, instilling fear and shaking your confidence. But don't be swayed, for you have always held the reins. The Beast may inhabit a corner of your mind, but it lacks the power to control your actions.

Not convinced? Try this: Extend your finger in front of your eyes and move it, then ask the Beast to do the same. The Beast can't because it doesn't hold sway over your physical actions.

The truth is, you've never truly "failed" in your endeavor against addiction. You've always had the choice, and sometimes you've elected to surrender to the Beast's desires. But that doesn't equate to losing control. It merely shows you gave in, momentarily, to the Beast's whisperings.


Recovery from addiction isn't about becoming a superhero or uncovering the universe's hidden secrets. It's about realizing that we don't have control over every aspect of life. However, we do have control over our actions, our reactions, and how we choose to face life's unpredictable events.

Do you choose the path of self-discovery and freedom from addiction? Or do you prefer to remain confined by the restrictions that addiction imposes? Be cautious: the Beast may distort your perspective, asking, "Where are the benefits?" or suggesting, "You haven't gained anything," and even instigating impatience by incessantly asking, "How long until I see the benefits?"

But don't fall prey to these distortions. Escaping addiction isn't about immediate gain or fixing all your life's problems. Recovery isn't a magic solution; it's a step towards personal empowerment. It's about gaining freedom and unlocking your potential, not just as a person in recovery, but as an individual capable of resilience and authenticity.

Concentrate on the liberation that breaking free from addiction brings. Let's choose this path towards a life where addiction no longer controls us, allowing us to genuinely live and experience life to its fullest.

Understanding the Real Reason You're Engaging in This

Engaging in this addiction is solely for pleasure and nothing more. Every other justification is a fabrication of the Beast. It's designed to make you believe that giving in to your addiction is the only route to happiness or relief when you're feeling depressed, bored, lonely, stressed, or miserable.

Speaking from personal experience, I used to think that I turned to pornography and masturbation because I was lonely, stressed, or had a rough day. I thought that because I spent my entire day working alone on a computer, my environment or lifestyle was to blame for my addiction. These were excuses, a way to avoid taking responsibility for my actions, guided by the Beast's narrative.

The key to recognizing the Beast is noticing that the conversation always bends towards indulgence in your addiction.

Imagine you're having a tough day, and you begin to feel down. Instead of recognizing this as a passing mood, the Beast seizes this opportunity. It will amplify your negative emotions by saying things like, "You're always unhappy, aren't you? You know what would make you feel better... just one quick session won't hurt." Or, "You're so lonely, this is unbearable. Just indulge, it's your only comfort." These harsh whispers are the Beast's attempts to deepen your feeling of depression and nudge you towards the addictive behavior. Depression doesn't create addiction; addiction does.

The Beast's goal? To make you feel so low that resorting to your addiction seems like the only way out. Conversely, when you're content and joyful, the Beast will persuade you to give in, arguing it will amplify your satisfaction. Just think about it. If you're living what you perceive as a perfect life, the Beast will still argue you could feel even better with pornography and masturbation. It's a never-ending, destructive cycle.

Understanding and Separating Desire

Desire, in its essence, is not a negative emotion; it's a natural human condition. It propels us toward achievement, drives creativity, and gives meaning to our experiences. It also plays a crucial role in our relationships and our sexuality. The key in overcoming addiction is not to extinguish desire altogether, but to discern between healthy desires and those manipulated by the Beast.

Imagine your desires as a beautiful, roaring river. It's full of life, movement, and potential. This river represents your natural, healthy desires - things like connecting with others, pursuing your hobbies, personal growth, and even your sexual desires. These are your desires, part of who you are.

Then, there's the Beast's desire - a poisonous stream trying to merge into your river, attempting to hijack your natural flow. This stream carries the pull of addiction, steering you away from your authentic path, manipulating your thoughts, and distorting your perceptions.

Recognize this poisonous stream and refuse to let it merge with your river. This is not about damming the entire river or stifling your desires, but about rejecting the poisonous stream that the Beast introduces. It's about retaining your authentic desires and letting them guide you.

Identify that any thought associated with the desire to indulge in the addiction is coming from the Beast. By doing so, you begin to differentiate between what you truly want and what the Beast wants. This understanding will empower you, helping you keep your river clean, vibrant, and true to its course.

In the whirlwind of addiction, it can be easy to confuse the Beast's desires with our own. I, too, was lost in this confusion. I believed I was drawn to endless layers of perversion, thinking that I was attracted to the limitless exploration of perversion. But deep down, this wasn't me, it was the Beast's influence, its relentless push for more and more. Upon reflection, I realized my true desire was much simpler and profoundly more meaningful: to love and be loved. To have a wife, to raise children together, to share in the mundane and the magical moments of life. That's my authentic desire, not the empty promises of temporary pleasure the Beast kept pushing. This profound clarity is a stark contrast to the Beast's corruption, a beacon that can guide you back to your true self.

The goal is not to eliminate desire, but to reclaim it, to keep it authentic and personal. Desire is a part of your humanity; it's the Beast's manipulation of it that leads to addiction.

The Myth of Relapse and the Power of Perfection.

The Beast might sometimes whisper, "It's okay to relapse. You'll do better next time." This is a shrewd strategy designed to maintain its hold on you by normalizing relapse as a part of the recovery journey. It uses these tactics to sow seeds of doubt in your mind, aiming to eventually lead you to relapse. Rational Recovery, however, views this differently: the key is making a definitive decision—your Big Plan—to abstain from the addictive behavior and sticking to it under any circumstances.

Human beings are perfectly capable of achieving perfection in certain aspects of life. Consider the professional athlete who plays a perfect game or the musician who delivers a flawless performance. They do so by making a firm commitment to their goal and adhering to it diligently, without allowing any room for mistakes.

Similarly, your recovery journey can be perfect too. Once you make your Big Plan to abstain from addictive behavior, you can stick to it perfectly, without any relapses. This is the ideal that Rational Recovery promotes—not "try, fail, and try again," but "decide and stick to your decision perfectly."

Your Beast wants you to believe that perfection is unachievable, as this gives it room to persuade you to relapse. But don't let it fool you. You have the power to make a perfect decision and stick to it.

What if it's too Difficult or Painful?

Instead of pondering over this, consider a different question: 'For whom is it too painful or difficult?' Any discomfort or difficulty associated with ceasing the addiction stems from the Beast, not you. Observing the Beast's distress is a positive sign - it shows you're successfully dissociating from it.

Remember that humans can only fully experience one feeling at a time. When you start feeling discomfort from abstaining, it's crucial to recognize that this isn't your discomfort. It's the Beast that suffering. The Beast is protesting because it's not getting what it wants. This suffering isn't negative for you; in fact, it's a positive sign. It means you're successfully asserting control over your decisions, as the Beast's discomfort indicates that it's losing its influence over you.

Most importantly, remember: you are safe. You risk nothing by quitting this addiction. Every feeling of discomfort or fear is from the Beast, not you. Your well-being and safety are never in jeopardy by choosing to stop. By rejecting the Beast's influence and asserting your control, you reclaim your freedom from addiction.

How would I know what I will do in the future?

While predicting your future actions may be impossible, you can certainly define what you would never do. Consider the activities that you find disturbing, unhealthy, and reprehensible - those that you would never engage in.

Now, add porn and masturbation addiction to that list. As you do this, pay attention to your Beast. It might try to concoct far-fetched scenarios that seem to justify succumbing to the addiction. Recognize these for what they are: desperate attempts by the Beast to manipulate your thoughts. By doing so, you can effectively disregard its interference and remain true to your values.

I'm scared to relapse, what should I do?

Relapse anxiety is a common pitfall many encounter on their NoFap journey. You may be confidently progressing, then suddenly a thought creeps in: "What if I relapse tomorrow?" This thought triggers anxiety, shaking your belief in your commitment.

From the Rational Recovery standpoint, relapse anxiety is the Beast's deceptive voice trying to manipulate you. It incites fear and uncertainty, making you feel as if relapse is imminent. The Beast attempts to shake your confidence and sense of control. But here's the truth: relapse anxiety is an illusion, a tactic used by the Beast to tighten its grip.

Combat this by distancing yourself from the Beast and recognizing that relapse anxiety is a deceptive tactic used by the Beast to instill fear and weaken your resolve. Remember, you risk nothing by quitting this addiction; you are safe. Any discomfort you experience stems from the Beast, not you.

Reiterate your Big Plan: "I will never consume porn or masturbate again." By affirming your decision and distancing yourself from the Beast's influence, you can dispel the anxiety and stay firmly on your path. Remember, you are in control, and you will always stay in control, the fears conjured by the Beast hold no sway over you.

The Beast's Attack on the Dreamscape

The Beast's intrusion into your dreams should not be a source of fear. This isn't a situation that requires extensive concern, this is just a sign of the Beast's distress.

There are generally two types of dreams where the Beast tries to assert its influence. The first type are explicit sex dreams, designed to reignite the desires and cravings associated with your addiction. The second type are dreams where you see yourself relapsing, which can be distressing and seem all too real.

When your neocortex (the real you) goes to sleep, the Beast sees an opportunity to attack and tries to regain influence over you through these dreams. This is evidence that you are on the right track. Your progress towards your goal of freedom from addiction is causing this panicked response from the Beast.

Remember, no matter what happens in your dreams, you are in control in reality. These dreams are just dreams, and they do not have the power to make you do anything.

Understanding 'Blue Balls' and Nocturnal Emissions in Recovery

Experiencing discomfort or an aching in the testicles, often referred to as 'blue balls,' is something that some individuals might encounter during their decision to quit their porn and masturbation addiction. Similarly, you may also experience nocturnal emissions or 'wet dreams' during your journey to recovery.

These phenomena aren't signs of harm, danger, or relapse, but rather physical manifestations of your body adjusting to your firm decision to quit the addiction.

While your body is adapting to a new, healthier state, not reliant on constant sexual stimulation, the Beast might attempt to distort these occurrences into negative experiences. It might tell you that nocturnal emissions are relapses, causing unwarranted fear and anxiety. But remember, you're in control.

Consider these sensations and events as physical signs of your transformation, a testament to the changes happening within you. It's important to remember that not everyone experiences this, and even if you do, it's not something to be overly concerned about. These adjustments are something you are more than capable of handling. As your body adjusts to your new lifestyle, such events will likely decrease and eventually stop. Don't let the Beast use these natural bodily responses as a scare tactic.

Gradual Reduction: A Beast's Strategy

In your journey of breaking free from addiction, you might be tempted to adopt a "gradual reduction" approach - cutting back little by little rather than quitting outright. This strategy, while seemingly logical, is often a ploy from the Beast, setting you up for failure.

During my own journey, for many months, I was enticed by the concept of gradually reducing my addictive behaviors. The approach felt less abrupt, seemingly offering a smoother transition. Even the Beast within me suggested compromises such as, "Let's start by indulging only in the afternoon," or "How about we limit it to weekends?".However, I discovered through experience that this gradual reduction strategy often creates more problems than it resolves. Let me tell you why.

Firstly, by not making a clean break, you're continually feeding the addiction, keeping the Beast alive and active. It's akin to trying to put out a fire while still pouring small amounts of gasoline on it - it keeps the flames going, never fully extinguishing the fire.

Secondly, when you set specific times or days for indulging, you're not freeing your mind from the addiction; instead, you're refocusing it. You find yourself constantly counting down the hours or days until your next 'allowed' session. This fixation lead to a persistent preoccupation with the addiction, turning the process into something torturous and counterproductive.

Lastly, even on the days where you've decided not to indulge, the Beast is still at work. It doesn't take breaks. It try to convince you to deviate from your plan, asserting things like, "You're going to do it in a couple of days anyway, so why not just do it today? Why wait?" This becomes a recurring battle with the Beast, undermining your resolve.

The gradual reduction method keeps the addiction in focus, maintains the Beast's influence, and undermines your resolve. It's far more effective to make a clean break and assert your decision to quit outright. Remember, you're not losing anything by quitting - you're freeing yourself from the Beast's control.

Counting Days

Why should you spend energy on counting days for an activity you've resolved never to engage in? The Beast excels at setting goals and then weaponizing them against us.

Here's how the Beast use day counting against you:

Making a big deal of milestones: The Beast lead you to focus excessively on reaching a certain number of days, weeks, or months. While milestones can be motivational, the Beast use them to create unnecessary stress and pressure, saying things like "What if you don't make it?" or "Imagine how bad it would feel to start over."

Justifying a lapse: "You've made it 100 days, you deserve a reward!" or "One slip after so many days won't hurt." The Beast use the number of days as an excuse to suggest that it would be "safe" or "earned" to indulge in the addictive behavior.

Creating a false sense of security: The Beast suggest that after a certain number of days without indulging in the addiction, you're "cured" and could safely return to the behavior without becoming addicted again.

Undermining early progress: In the initial stages, the Beast belittle the small number of days you've been free from the addiction, making statements like "You've only managed two days, you'll never make it a week."

Leveraging bad days: If you're having a tough day, the Beast say, "You're miserable even after 30 days clean. See, quitting doesn't make things better. Might as well go back."

Remember, these are all tricks of the Beast trying to manipulate you into returning to the addictive behavior. The Beast will use anything, including the count of days, to try to get what it wants. The best way to deal with this is to remain steadfast in your decision and continue dissociating from the Beast.

So, instead of getting trapped in the Beast's game of counting days, surrender this act to it. We can concentrate on the broader scope - liberating ourselves from the Beast's clutches, embracing enduring change, and regaining our freedom. Day counting becomes insignificant because it no longer illustrates our path. Our chosen journey is one where the Beast's urges hold no power, and our authentic liberation takes the limelight. Let the Beast obsess over counting days, while we commit to a life of emancipation and self-discovery.

Why Punishment Doesn't Work

Self-punishment is a common response to addiction, yet it often proves ineffective. This can take many forms, from physical discomfort to emotional torment. In my own battle against addiction, I tried various self-punishment strategies. On the physical side, I would resort to self-harm. Emotionally, I burdened myself with negative self-talk, depression, feelings of hopelessness, anger, sadness, and even thoughts of death. It's important to note, however, that these intense feelings of guilt and self-condemnation were amplified by the Beast. The Beast utilizes such negative emotions to paint addiction as the only respite, the only 'good thing' left in life. It is a manipulative trick to keep you chained to the addiction.

Yet, over time, these painful memories have faded, while the seductive pull of the addictive behavior has remained vivid in my mind. It's a compelling illustration of the human condition: we often forget pain and remember pleasure.

Consider individuals who struggle with drug addiction. They might end up in a hospital after an overdose, experiencing immense physical pain. But as time passes, the memory of this pain dissipates, while the allure of the drug, the pleasure it brought, remains clear and tempting. This imbalance often leads them back into the cycle of addiction.

This became evident to me during the last week leading up to my final decision to quit - my Big Plan. It was the most challenging week of my life; I was counting the days until my liberation. Now that I'm free, when I think back to that week, the Beast tries to rewrite the narrative, calling it the "best week of all time!"

This disparity between the memory of pain and pleasure underscores why self-punishment is an ineffective strategy for long-term addiction recovery. Rational Recovery offers a different approach. Rather than relying on the fleeting memory of pain, it focuses on recognizing and dissociating from the addictive voice—the Beast.

Arguing with the beast

Let's clarify something: arguing with the Beast is futile. The Beast is single-minded, craving only the satisfaction of its addiction. Moreover, it's cunning, capable of playing both sides of an argument.

For instance, the Beast might implant thoughts such as, "You could indulge now, it's not a big deal." Then, to create confusion and feign agreement, it might echo that very idea, saying, "Yes, I could indulge now." It's essential to recognize that both these sentiments are from the Beast. It is a clear demonstration of how it can promote the idea of indulgence while also pretending to be 'you' to create an illusion of consent.

In the Rational Recovery technique, every thought or feeling associated with the indulgence in the addiction is identified as coming from the Beast, including its attempts to take possession of the pronoun "I".

You are the decision-maker here, you are in control. Your will is what truly matters, and the Beast must inevitably conform to your decisions.

Dealing with White-Knuckling and Intense Urges

Feeling urges, cravings, or hunger sensations is a natural part of the recovery journey. In fact, it's a positive sign, an indication that you are making progress. However, these feelings can turn into white-knuckling when you identify with the Beast's thoughts and feelings. When you start saying things like "I'm so horny" or "I need a relief ASAP," you're identifying with the beast voice. When you find yourself arguing with the Beast or doubting your decision to quit, you're in the grip of white-knuckling.

In my own journey to recovery, I experienced these urges, cravings, and sensations. But rather than identifying with them and turning them into a struggle, I recognized them as signs of the Beast's distress, not mine. It was the Beast who was desperate and frustrated, not me. This recognition made these moments not just bearable but even satisfying, as they signaled that I was on the right track in my recovery.

The power of these urges and cravings diminished with my Big Plan, my absolute decision to never indulge in the addictive behavior again. Even if you find yourself in a white-knuckling situation, remember that you can shift your perspective. Recognize that every thought encouraging the addictive behavior is coming from the Beast, and use the Recognition or Shifting techniques to help you dissociate from these thoughts and feelings. After that, reaffirm your Big Plan, stating firmly and clearly, "I will never consume porn or masturbate again." This firm commitment to your Big Plan will dispel all doubt, releasing you from the grip of white-knuckling.

The Big Plan: Your Commitment to Freedom

Taking a firm decision is a critical step in overcoming addiction, and this is what making a Big Plan entails. This plan is a complete commitment, devoid of room for negotiation or compromise. When you formulate a Big Plan, you're making a promise to yourself to never indulge in your addiction again, under any circumstances.

Choosing a specific day for your Big Plan can help add a sense of occasion and finality to your decision. For instance, I personally chose a Sunday at 12am. Your Beast will likely agree to this arrangement, looking forward to a "last hurrah."

But as you approach your chosen day to initiate your Big Plan, the Beast may start getting anxious. It may whisper, "I can't let this go!" or "Let's postpone the Big Plan, and enjoy this for now!" This is not your voice. It's the voice of the Beast, trying to make you delay your decision and panicking at the impending loss of its control.

Your declaration for the Big Plan could be: "I will never consume porn or masturbate again." This phrase embodies the essence of the Big Plan — a firm, unyielding decision that signifies your commitment to stay addiction-free.

In your journey to overcome addiction, the video I am about to share will be invaluable. It features Jack Trimpey, the founder of Rational Recovery, directly guiding you through the process of making a Big Plan. Although Trimpey focuses on alcohol and drug addiction in the video, his guidance applies to any addiction, including pornography and masturbation. Carefully absorb his words, understanding their relevance to your personal struggle.

Data Scientist vs Machine Learning Engineer: a career comparison in 2023
You might be new to the workforce, have recently graduated, or trying to keep your current job. There is always a chance to learn and do better in your field. There is no better time to pick up some trending skills than right now. Be it an Online data science course or a machine learning certification, options are many. Artificial intelligence and machine learning jobs have grown over the past few years. You may find many job titles in this category. For instance, data scientists and machine learning engineers.
Many are unaware of the differences between a data scientist and a machine learning engineer. Continue reading to know the differences between the two and various job opportunities.
Who Is A Machine Learning Engineer?
Machine learning engineers start learning with the software development side. They add machine learning skills through training or additional study. Although some of them are now graduating from specific degree programs.
It is not easy for a software developer to become a machine learning engineer.
There are now more open-source libraries from market leaders like TensorFlow. Now it has become simpler for machine learning engineers to experiment with a variety of models. An experienced machine learning engineer uses these models to build APIs and web interfaces. Machine learning engineers have some common skills with data scientists. Both of them use R or Python. They need advanced maths skills such as linear algebra and statistics.
However, machine learning engineers are highly skilled when it comes to programming. They also need to know production platforms. For example AWS, and GCP.
Who Are Data Scientists?
The term "data scientist" ""is often used as the overall term, with machine learning engineer being a subset of it. But, a data science career is becoming a more specialised job category now. Analysing business data using machine learning or artificial intelligence is becoming common.
Data scientists may start as business analysts and enhance their maths and analytics skills. They can do it with additional courses or on-the-job training. Some may directly start as data scientists. They need to have academic backgrounds in statistics or AI.

With the knowledge of maths and business domains, data scientists need programming skills too. It enables them to develop prototypes of models. The most common programming languages for the job are R and Python. Additionally, Julia, JavaScript, Matlab, and others are also useful. Data scientists must be familiar with data visualisation tools. For example tools like Tableau and Qlik.

Can The Two Work Together?

Big companies consider data scientists and machine learning engineers as separate jobs. However, the smaller and medium companies need one person for both jobs. The company may be hiring either one or the other. It can be a mistake and affect efficiency. If a company can only afford to hire one person, hire for what they need the most. They may cross-train other resources.

What Are The Responsibilities Of An ML Engineer?

  • Creating and deploying useful algorithms to a function.
  • Applying Docker technologies for creating deployable model versions.
  • Development of APIs that are scalable, flexible, and reliable. They integrate data products and sources into applications.
  • Creating Infrastructure as Code. They create environments during model development and training that are easily replicated for the final solution.
  • Developing and maintaining machine learning systems.
  • Implement machine learning algorithms
  • They integrate and do versioning control to track model iterations.
  • Testing and deploying models.
  • Creation of any user interfaces for displaying an in-depth view of the models.
  • Implementation of other software engineering concepts. For instance l continuous delivery, auto-scaling, and monitoring.
  • They focus on delivering ready-to-use ML products.
  • Looking over the needs of the project.
What Are The Responsibilities Of A Data Scientist?

A Data scientist can do everything throughout the Data Scientist career. From setting up a server to presenting the insights, they are multitasking. Below are some jobs a data scientist performs:

  • Identifying business problems and collecting large datasets to solve them.
  • Preparing, cleaning, and transforming data before analysing.
  • Applying smart methods for data mining for generating information.
  • Implementing appropriate algorithms for a business problem.
  • Using statistical modelling and ML techniques to measure and improve the results.
  • Optimising model hyperparameters.
  • Using analytical methods and models to identify trends, patterns, and correlations in given datasets.
  • Consult with AI engineers, data analysts, and other stakeholders to support better business decision-making.
  • Communicating the findings to business stakeholders.

Necessary Skills For A Data Scientist

The top skills to become a data scientist are as follows:
1. Programming
It is a very important skill necessary for any data scientist. Knowledge of languages like Python helps to excel in this career. It helps in organising unstructured data sets.
2. Analytical Tools
These tools help in extracting valuable information from an organised set of data. For example R, Hadoop, SAS, Pig, and Hive.
3. Mathematics
Mathematical concepts like Probability, Linear Algebra, and Statistics are useful in Data Science.
4. Handling Data
Extracting data from various sources and transforming it to store it in a specific format and structure is crucial. It helps in querying and analysis. Using Data Wrangling, one can clean complex data sets. Examples of data visualisation tools are Tableau and Power BI.
5. Model Deployment
It involves the methods for deploying an ML model in a live environment. It helps in gaining operational value.

Necessary Skills For A Machine Learning Engineer

Below are the necessary skills for a machine learning engineer:

1. Programming
Programming ( is the most important skill ML engineers should have. They should have a good understanding of computer concepts.
2. Advanced Signal Processing
It helps in minimising noise and extract useful features of a signal. Understanding concepts like wavelets, curvelets, contourlets, and bandlets is useful.
3. Mathematics
It is another important skill for a machine learning engineer. Concepts like calculus, probability, linear algebra, multivariate statistics, and distributions are essential.
4. Data Modeling and Evaluation
It involves knowledge of the data structure and finding suitable data patterns. With the help of algorithms, they can evaluate suitable data.
5. Natural language Processing
NLP Learns, and creates devices and systems for understanding, interpreting, and manipulating human language. Examples of NLP Libraries and techniques are Word2vec and Sentiment analysis.
6. Neural Networks
They are a set of algorithms designed for recognizing patterns. Neural networks interpret data using a type of clustering. They may use labelling raw input and machine perception.
To be a machine learning engineer or a data scientist, you must have skills like mathematics and programming. Also, good communication is required by both professions. So choosing one domain over another is not too challenging. Both data science and machine learning are good career options for 2023. There are great opportunities in both.
So, instead of wondering which one is a better profession, it will be wise to know that both professions are best in their way. Both of them get decent salaries. It depends on your interest in which you want to work. In both career options, you need to have relevant knowledge. It will lead to your best career decisions. Although both differ from each other but play a major role in the development of any company. To master your technical skills, you can join courses offered by The IoT Academy.

2023.06.05 08:23 Jack000999 How to fix "E349: No identifier under cursor"?

When I go out of focus and come back into vim and if the cursor was in an empty space when I left the terminal window, I get the error "E349: No identifier under cursor" and if the cursor was on a word before I went out of focus then vim runs "[I" command.
With some trial and error, I figured out that this was caused due to "set mouse=a" option in my vimrc, but this problem started happening only a couple of days ago and I enabled mouse support months ago, so I am confused why its happening only now. With more digging around I found that when I lose focus vim receives "^[[O" characters and when I gain back fouce vim receives "^[[I" but this only happens when vim is running and with just my terminal(alacritty) opened and nothing running, no characters are received by my terminal. I tested these using 'cat' command, I ran 'cat' in my terminal and switched windows to lose focus and again switched back to gain focus but their were no inputs, but when I did the same thing in vim, while running a floating term provided by floatterm.vim, vim receives '^[[O' and '^[[I]' when FocusOut and FocusIn respectively.

2023.06.05 08:05 BurgerQueenRei Need a little help

I've recently (in the past year or two) come closer to God, thanks in no small part to my father who has helped me immensely in understanding the scripture and my faith. But there are two things I've been afraid to talk about with him that might be better for me to talk about and see opinions of online, and that is that (as common a topic and as often you guys probably get this) I've been really depressed lately and I think it's impacted my faith, I feel worthless and it makes me feel worse trying to open the Bible and read it only to fall short and stop reading. I really do love God, and it feels like he's the only one in my corner sometimes, but it's like there's this invisible wall keeping me from truly flourishing and believing as much as I could. I know I'm kind of rambling, sorry if I lost some of you there.
The other thing is that, as fearful I am of this life and what it entails for me, I'm even more terrified of the idea of eternal life. Not just hell, but the idea of living forever in heaven scares me. I know it's probably because of me not being able to understand it and wrap my head around it, but when I think of it, it stresses me out, makes my heart race, and makes me wish that I could just turn into nothing after death. I know this is a serious problem, so I'm hoping I might get some perspective from you guys.
Let me know if you need any clarification on what I've said, I know I can drone on and stray from the point sometimes.

2023.06.05 08:01 mobint Help me throw a party

Hey guys,
Your boy’s turning 27 this Saturday. I was a loser and ran away alone on a trip last year because i was going through serious mid life crisis. I let down a lot of people.
I want to throw a party this Saturday for my near dears. I have like 15 people on this list and expecting some to bring +1, so let’s say 20.
Budget - 20k
Options 1. Terrace - but i live in a rental and neighbours might have a problem with this, can I get a permission for this? I also need info on anybody who could set up a few lights and decor on the terrace 2. The house itself - main issue, the house will get real dirty. Neighbours might complain too but that’s common with terrace too 3. Get a villa with a pool - tell everyone it’s a byob and have mixers and food arranged. But places are too expensive. 15k is the base. Maybe without pool will also work.
Please help me out with more options or if you can help one of these options get materialised.

2023.06.05 08:01 PokemonMastersBot Weekly General Questions Megathread

You can now insert images as comments when you seek for in-game help in Megathreads! Check out this mod post HERE for more information.

Use this Megathread if you have general questions or need advice! e.g. asking for EX / Candy recommendation, gems usage, "Should I pull this banner?", "How do I build a team on this stage?", etc.
If you need team building help specifically for Champion Stadium, you may use the Champion Stadium Megathread to receive a quicker response.

Installing Pokémon Masters

Pokémon Masters is available worldwide except for Belgium and The Netherlands due to bans on loot boxes.
We will go over the two main platforms on installing the game, IOS and Android.
According to the official site, the game is most compatible in these devices:
iOS: 11 or higher / 64 bit / at least 2 GB of RAM
Android: OS 7.0 or higher / 64 bit / at least 2 GB of RAM
  1. Via Apple Store: HERE
  1. Via Google Play Store: HERE
  2. Others
If the game is unavailable in your country or shows as not available for your device, you can download the APK directly from APKPure or QooApp.
You can also use VPN to download it from the application store, but it requires longer downloading time compared to the above recommended methods.

Reroll Guide

Reroll means that you make a new account and look at what you got from your scout. If you don't like your first few multi-pulls, you delete the account and create a new one again and so on until you are satisfied.

Why reroll?

How to Reroll?
If you're an existing player, delete your local data or cache first. Otherwise, do not link your account to Nintendo. Doing so will bind your Pokémon Masters account to your Nintendo profile permanently and can no longer be removed.
As of now, if you progress up to the point when co-op mode is unlocked, you can get at least 21.000 gems, the equivalent of 7 multis, earning at least 231/400 scout points (33 scout points per multi scout), allowing you to scout at least 77 Sync Pairs.

In-Game FAQ

1. When is anniversary coming?

Half-year 28 February 6AM UTC
Full-year 28 August 6AM UTC
2 Why hasn't my Pokemon evolved? It's at Level [X]!
Evolution requires an evolution item available in the Training Area (Evolution Material Area). Upon earning the Evolution Materials, you need to go to the Sync Pair Stories to trigger the Evolution Story.
3. Should I save to do 11 multi-scouts instead of single scouts?
You can now get x11 units instead of 10, so yes, but we strongly recommend you to save gems for Poké Fair or Master Fair banners (which has a higher rate for 5★ characters).
4. How many gems are required to receive a Sync Pair of my choice?
36.600 non-paid gems (or 36.300 gems + 100 paid gems for a daily single pull), which is the equivalent of 400 scout points. Scout points do not carry over between banners.
5. What does [X]/5, [Y]/20, etc mean?
When you obtain a Sync Pair, they're at 1/5 Sync Move level. Rolling a dupe of that Sync Pair, or using a Move Candy will increase it by 1 level. 3/5 is the minimum for most sync pairs to complete their Sync Grid, but some Poké Fairs have grid expansions that require their Sync Move to be completely maxed out at 5/5 for their full Sync Grid.
At the same time, Sync Pairs are at 0/20 Potential when they're just obtained. Giving Sync Pairs Powerups will raise their Potential and stats. When a Sync Pair is given 20 powerups, their star level will be increased. Getting a unit to 5★ 20/20 is mandatory for it to further upgrade to 6★ EX (if it has one).
6. How do I Unlock The Level cap of my units?
Training Area (Cap Unlock Area), (Cap Unlock Area 2), Exchange in the shop, Events.
7. Where do I get the manuals to level up my sync pairs?
Training Area (Level up Area), Exchange in the shop, Events, random drops in Trainer Lodge.
8. How do I get Sync orbs?
Training Area (Sync orb Area), Exchange in the shop, Events, Champion Stadium Master Mode (6K & 7.5K), random drops in Trainer Lodge.
9. What are Theme Skill and how do I get items to power them up?
Theme Skill is a new ability that raises the stats of your Sync Pairs if any of them has a common position, type, region, trainer group, or other features with another pair (or pairs) in the same team. Skill Spheres, which can be obtained in Theme Skill area and Champion Stadium Master Mode, are required to upgrade them.
10. What Lucky Skill should I roll for [X]? How do I get Lucky Cookies and Scrolls to unlock a Sync Pair's Lucky Skill?
Refer to Sync Grid Builds & Lucky Skills (by u/MomoSpark) for more details.
In general, the choices of Lucky Skills follow the roles of Sync Pairs:
There are exceptions to some Sync Pairs. For example,
Lucky Cookies and Lucky Scrolls can all be obtained in Battle Villa (Single Player & Co-op), Blissful Bonanza, and Legendary Gauntlet. Legendary Gauntlet can provide unlimited 3★ Lucky Cookies as well as Deluxe Cookies exclusive to that mode after each successful stage clear, and their drop chance increases with longer win streaks.
11. What are the Sync Move effects of 6★ EX Sync Pairs of different roles? Who should I promote to 6★ EX first?
Each role gives different effects to Sync Moves when upgraded to 6★ EX.
Support is usually prioritized for promotion to 6★ EX because its EX effect effectively doubles the damage of all allied sync pairs after first sync and is more widely applicable across most game modes, and the increased stats from raising the support's Potential greatly enhances its bulk to tank stages.
For Strikers, if their kit has a very high DPS (e.g. SS Red & Charizard, Diantha & Gardevoir, etc.), or includes a powerful Sync multiplier (e.g. Steven & Metagross's Haymaker, Barry & Empoleon's Inertia, etc.), you are highly recommended to upgrade them to 6★ EX to apply the damage to all opponents. This applies to Tech, but only if the unit is a Sync nuker (e.g. Marnie & Morpeko, May & Swampert, etc.).
Promoting Support-type units to 6★ EX is not a must, but it's always an added bonus, especially if their Sync Move can provide any additional effects via passive or grid skills.
Always remember to upgrade Rosa to 6★ EX because the materials are obtainable for free.
12. Which Sync Pair should I use my candy on?
Refer to Which Sync Pair Should You Give Your Candy To? (Infographic) (by u/MuddyDummy) for more details.
Always save your candies unless the Sync Pair is exclusive to Seasonals, Poké Fairs or Master Fairs. Most Sync Pairs are usable at 1/5. You can always "accidentally" pull the unit you've been looking for from the normal pool, but you never know when limited Sync Pairs will rerun again. This may not apply to Sync Pairs that are your favorite.

Common Technical Questions/Errors

Below lists all common technical errors you may encounter during the game, as well as how you can fix it. You are strongly encouraged to contact DeNA with any problems at [[email protected]](/) if any of these advice do not help.
  1. Error 20103 — Please check your connection and try again: Usually caused due to lack of connection or sudden disconnection. Try playing the game in a place with more stable connection.
  2. Error 10102 — An error has occurred. Restarting the game: This error is often triggered because it detects your phone is rooted, or that you are using external applications which allows opening multiple accounts on the same device. For rooted phone users, make sure you hide your rooted status.
  3. Game crashed mid-battle: Restart the app and clear your cache. This option is available in the bottom-left corner of the title screen.
  4. Does Pokémon Masters work on emulators? No. As of now, PM is not compatible with any of the emulators (including Bluestacks, Nox, etc.) However, playing two accounts on the same device is possible on Android by cloning with Island.

2023.06.05 08:00 Illustrious-Use4831 My Neighbors suck

My Neighbors suck
The Constitution of Nepal 2072, under article 30 grants us the Right to clean environment. Based on this :
The National Penal Code Act 2017, Section 112(1) states, "No one shall generate, transmit, release or stockpile wastages in such manner as to cause significant adverse effect on the environment."
Section 112(3): A person who commits or causes an offense under sub-section (1) shall be punished with imprisonment up to one year or a fine of up to ten thousand rupees or both.
Apart from all these legal provisions, it is a well known fact that burning of wastes release toxic chemicals and gases into the atmosphere, thus polluting the air we breathe which can cause severe health problem like lung cancer, chronic obstructive pulmonary disease (COPD) and cardiovascular diseases.
The toxic chemicals released during burning include nitrogen oxides, sulfur dioxide, volatile organic chemicals (VOCs) and polycyclic organic matter (POMs). Burning plastic and treated wood also releases heavy metals and toxic chemicals, such as dioxin.
Other chemicals released while burning plastic include benzo(a)pyrene (BAP) and polyaromatic hydrocarbons (PAHs), which have both been shown to cause cancer.
But despite all these, call it negligence, hipocracy or malice us Nepalese like my neighbors choose to dispose of their wastages by incarceration inspite of the garbage management facilities provided by our local governments.
Some of my neighbors are so stingy AF that they choose to not pay the annual per floor Rs 500 or Rs 41.66 monthly garbage disposal fees and instead burn their wastes. These shits burn everything from common household wastes like plastics, paper and kitchen wastes to animal feces from their animal sheds instead of making fertilizers from them. Typical cave people brain.
We've tried confronting them multiple times regarding this issue but they simply don't listen. Then I decided to take this to our municipality(i.e Damak municipality) and contacted them via their official Facebook page. I even provided them with multiple video proof of my neighbors burning their wastes in broad daylight but they didn't even care to respond.
What do you guys think about this? Who is really at fault here? Don't you think that these vermins of society should be punished according to the the law?

2023.06.05 07:59 cinderelladoll62 On Demand Business Ideas

On Demand Business Ideas

The majority of the on-demand business models are delivery services, especially food delivery service is the most common thing. Everyone is aware of the food delivery industry, but there are still a lot more industrial sectors that have a huge revenue gain impact in the market space.
The on-demand business ventures have made a revolution, the way most of the business serves its customers. On-demand apps are fulfilling customer’s demands right up from delivering things to their doorsteps and thereby creating a personalized experience to avail their desired services at their ease.
The on-demand service is designed in such a way to reduce the waiting time of the customers and to give them full flexibility in their shopping. This improves the customer’s experience which brought many companies to offer their own delivery service with the help of third-party delivery agents.
Top On-Demand Business Ideas for Startup for the Next Decade
With various technologies coming into play, and the growing customer demands, the journey of entrepreneurs to launch an eCommerce marketplace is getting easier. Adopting an innovative approach and finding a sound business model is enough to lay the foundation of a new business.
If you are one of the business enthusiasts looking forward to starting an eCommerce venture revolving around the on-demand economy, spend more time deducing the optimal business model before executing it.
The following are some of the most lucrative business options inspired by the on-demand economy.
1. Start A Multi-Vendor E-Commerce Marketplace
The eCommerce sector has seen tremendous growth in the recent past and the sector is speculated to see a phenomenal rise of 30% in the next few years. This has opened a completely new horizon when it comes to creating multi-vendor eCommerce marketplaces.
2. Launch An Online Grocery Store
Grocery shopping is a task which consumers have to undertake every other day. An online grocery store in that situation is a perfect solution. More and more people are now inclined towards buying groceries online. If you are interested in launching a startup catering to a niche market such a marketplace is best suited.
3. Run A Daily Deal Portal
With eCommerce gaining traction, the next big boost has surely come in the daily deals arena. However, there is still a huge void in this sector with ample room for new startups. While consumers get better deals, merchants, on the other hand, get customers in bulk. The platform gets a cut on each successful transaction.
4. Run An Online Custom Clothing Platform
Lifestyle and fashion have always been the biggest drivers of the eCommerce industry. However, new business models like online custom tailoring platforms have emerged in this sector.
Custom clothing websites not only offer bespoke clothing but also a sense of personalization. Such websites help consumers choose fabrics, measurements, style specifications, and get custom-made clothes delivered right to their doorstep.
5. Launch A Marketplace For Freelance Writers
Professional freelance writers have always been in demand and their demand is growing each day with the focus shifting to content marketing. That said, brands face major problems finding writers for essay writing, research paperwork, or any other form of academic content.
6. Create A Marketplace Of Service Professionals
Like above, there is also a huge market for a service professional marketplace where you can easily find professionals like lawyers, doctors, carpenters, or any other type of professional.
7. Build A Platform For Online Food Ordering
Home delivery has been a tried and tested business model used by numerous restaurants. However, this was limited to a few large chains of restaurants. Nowadays online food ordering has become a huge market with portals coming to the center stage. Such websites offer restaurants and online gateway where consumers can place their orders, thereby coming across as the need of the hour and a viable business option.
8. Start An Online Car Marketplace
Buying or selling a car has always been a strenuous task for consumers. However, with the coming of age of eCommerce and online car marketplaces, the whole process has become seamless.
Online car marketplaces have become a huge hit among automobile enthusiasts and car buyers alike. Such marketplaces offer in-depth analysis of automobiles and present a platform to connect sellers and buyers.

How to transform your on-demand business into a huge success?
A mobile app with user-friendly features
Online presence is essential for a business in this digital world. Therefore, take your traditional business to the next level by launching an on-demand multi-delivery app. Moreover, the features you included in the app play a vital role. For example, adding a feature like a GPS tracking system makes it friendly for the customers. This way, you can manage the business operations efficiently without paperwork.
Competitive pricing
Each customer has different requirements. Therefore, the pricing structure should be based on their requirements. For example, in the case of courier delivery, you can consider the weight and size of the package. Also, it is necessary to consider the delivery speed the customers want to avail.
User engagement
It is an important factor to consider for making your business successful. Transparency in the process is what the customers will expect. Let them know the order status in real-time via in-app notifications. Also, it will be great to inform your customers about the estimated delivery date & time. Besides, update the status via email or SMS. Notably, with the help of live chat, customers can get their queries resolved at any time.
Aesthetic packaging
Good packaging impacts your brand image. You can even make it as a USP or differentiating factor to stand apart from your rivals. So right from the start of packing, still the delivery, ensure that the proper packaging and the packaging box are maintained.

2023.06.05 07:58 Agitated_Calendar_51 Feeling Scared and Disgusted by Sexual Content - Need Advice and Support

I'm a 17 years old girl and I've been struggling with some intense emotions and fears related to sexual content. I started watching porn at a young age, but it always felt wrong and immoral to me. It disturbs me to see such explicit acts, and it's hard for me to believe that the actors involved are real people willingly engaging in these acts, which I find extremely shameful. This has caused me to develop a fear and disgust towards sexual things in general, making it seem like an animalistic and barbaric aspect of human behavior. The fact that it is so normalized and that many people don't see a problem with it scares me even more. As I grew older, I started hearing about things like pedophilia and rape, which are unfortunately common, and it has made me realize that these disturbing behaviors are just part of human sexual behavior. I am genuinely scared and traumatized by these thoughts and feelings. Although I am an atheist, experiences like these have made me consider turning into Christianity. I really want to have a boyfriend, but I'm scared that if I enter into a relationship, he will ask for sex. I'm unsure about what is considered normal in terms of sexual activities, and I'm uncertain about when and how things should progress. I would greatly appreciate any advice, support, or guidance on how to cope with these fears and better understand healthy sexual relationships. Thank you in advance.

In today's increasingly diverse and complex business environment, managing human resources has become a critical factor for success. The role of human resource (HR) professionals has evolved from being a support function to a strategic partner in organizational growth. As such, obtaining an MBA in Human Resource Management (HRM) has become a popular choice for professionals seeking to advance their careers in this field.

Diversity in the workplace refers to the differences among employees in terms of age, gender, race, ethnicity, religion, sexual orientation, education, and other factors. A diverse workforce brings a range of perspectives and experiences that can lead to innovative ideas and solutions.

They also ensure that employees have a clear understanding of their roles and responsibilities, and that they are aligned with the organization's mission and values.
