2023.06.05 09:08 halinspecscart What are the Venture Further Awards?

The Venture Further Awards (VFA) is the annual start-up competition organised by the University of Manchester. It is the UK’s most sought-after university-led startup competition for student and graduate entrepreneurs. The objective of the Venture Further Awards is to give wings to the entrepreneurial ideations of students from across the University of Manchester. Since its inception around 20 years ago, the Venture Further Awards have created over one hundred businesses.
I have been following the Venture Further Awards since 2017, and every year, the novel developments and innovations never fail to blow my mind. For instance, I distinctly remember that in 2018, an eyewear start-up called Specscart won the VFA in the Health Category and fast forward to the present, they even have a store in my hometown - Walkden.
The VFA has five different categories of prizes - environment, healthcare, service, social, and technology. Each category has a first prize of £15,000 and a second prize of £5,000 to kickstart their business idea. Irrespective of the school or faculty a student or graduate is from, they can apply for any category.
The prize fund for the winners of the Venture Further Awards was increased to £100,000 for ten different and new business propositions. Besides the lucrative prize money, winning the Venture Further Awards also introduces the upcoming entrepreneur to a world of support programmes, workshops, mentors, and mentors for growth and expansion.
What Do You Need to Participate in the Venture Further Awards
All University of Manchester students with a feasible business idea can put up their nomination for the Venture Further Awards. Along with the idea, you also have to demonstrate a lucid implementation plan. There are two rounds of judging for the five categories of the award. The first round is judged by the internal staff of the university. In the final round, external judges take over.
As an avid follower of the Venture Further Awards, I strongly feel that they are the right step toward modern entrepreneurship. Besides, the businesses that emerge and develop as a result of the assistance and felicitation from VFA have truly accomplished giant feats in a very short span of time.

2023.06.05 09:07 Offmychest827364 I ruined a best friendship and was a terrible ex

Before my story starts, I want to give a trigger warning for suicide and self harm, as well as stalking and harassment. Please don't read any further if these are things which upset you or cause you any discomfort. With that being said, do not EVER, under any circumstances, act the way I do in this story and please get help if you have even the smallest compulsion of obsession. You can recover and get the help you need.
I was in my early 20's, struggling with clinical suicidal depression for over a decade. A friend of mine had been with this girl for about a year, but their relationship was rocky pretty much the whole way through. I was supportive to both of them as a friend during their relationship troubles, but always put my boy first. Always encouraged her to weather the storm. Eventually she did the best thing for herself and ended the relationship. I was supportive of both of them, but pretty much cut off all contact with the girl.
Six months pass, and I randomly get a text from the girl about getting a piercing and sent a picture to show it off. She mentioned that she pretty much sent it to me because she didn't have any friends to talk to about getting the piercing, and figured I'd be cool to talk about it. At the time, a video game had just come out that was super grind-heavy, and told her that she could call if she wanted to chat since I could use the company during the monotony. So she called. We chatted for like five hours, just shooting the shit. Nothing major, just catching up since we hadn't talked in a long time. This evolved into her coming over to my place every day for a week or two in which we would be having dinner, watching movies, having deep and lighthearted conversations before I realized that I'd caught feelings for her.
I was really conflicted. This was my best friend's ex. I had asked him early on about if he was cool with us talking or hanging out despite them not being in a relationship anymore. He was supportive, and was like "You don't gotta worry about that, man. She was your friend when she was my ex. You don't gotta worry about talking to her." But I knew that I wouldn't be able to talk to her about my feelings without telling him first. I called him up and asked him to come over for dinner and drinks.
After we'd finished eating, I pretty much brought him up to speed. He was definitely not comfortable with hearing the news, but he wasn't violent or anything. He pretty much told me that it wasn't up to him and that it was out of his control. I remember him saying "If you two get together, you better last." I tried explaining to him that it wasn't planned, that it just happened organically, but that obviously didn't make him feel any better about it. He said he didn't want to be involved in anything going forward and that whatever happens happens. We ended up going through a pretty bad falling out after he found out about the relationship formed. I've never spoken to him since.
Anyway, the next day, the girl came over to watch a movie like usual. After the movie was over, I told her about my feelings. She wasn't really all that receptive and kind of went silent. We didn't talk all that much before she went home. She told me over text later on in the middle of the night that she felt weird, because she just wanted us to be friends. I felt pretty defeated inside, but understood. I told her that we could keep calling or hanging out and we'd just be buds. Everything went pretty much back to normal after that.
That is, until a couple days later. She had been frantically texting me from the hospital. She was having suicidal thoughts and was afraid of being a harm to herself. She was possibly going to be committed to the psychiatric ward, and when that possibility arose, and she knew she wouldn't be able to talk to me, she went into a panic. I told her that she would be okay, and that I'd be here for her when she got out if that was the case. She then said that they were about to confiscate her phone for a psych screening, and that afterwards they would evaluate whether or not to commit her, but that she had a final message. It went something along the lines of "Hey. Umm. I don't know how to say this. But I love you. But I don't know how I mean it." I said that I loved her too, and to be strong.
In my head, I figured this to be her reciprocating the feelings that I had for her. I was excited but also somewhat uneasy inside because I didn't know for sure. I was super tired at the time, and texted her to call me and wake me up if she wasn't getting committed. After thinking about it a while, I went for a nap. I was woken up by a text saying "Guess who's about to get woke the fuck up, beeitch?" and a phone call.
She had just gotten home. We pretty much went over the events at the hospital, and then I asked about the whole "I love you" thing. She said that she didn't know what it meant but that she felt the need to tell me. I was flirtatiously telling her that if she loves me, to say it over the phone. She was saying that she was too shy. I told her that she said it over text, she can say it out loud too. She eventually said it, and I said that I love her too. She kept saying it. Over and over. We must have said it to each other repeatedly for twenty minutes. The floodgates of emotions were let loose.
I was really happy. After being depressed for so long, I felt such a crazy amount of dopamine that I was ecstatic. She had mentioned so much to me in the following weeks, like how she always had thought of me as being the emotional buffer throughout her relationship with my best friend, and wished that she was in a relationship with me instead. The relationship was fun. We had lots of fun in the moment. This went on for about two months before I noticed a change.
She started being super distant. She wouldn't text me during work. She didn't want to come over for movies or talk on the phone anymore. She spent more and more time on her own. I started becoming an emotional wreck. I was being super clingy. She tried to tell me that she regretted telling me that she loved me, and that she wasn't thinking clearly when it happened. That she felt like I had pressured her into thinking that she meant "I love you" in a romantic way rather than platonic. I responded to it really poorly. I pressured her into continuing the relationship despite her not wanting it. This happened two more times in the coming weeks before we had finally broken up.
I was doing absolutely despicable things. I was stalking every interaction she had on social media (multiple sites). I was sending videos of me taking a ridiculous amount of Xanax. I was sending her pictures of empty prescription bottles. I was telling her that I was going to kill myself. I was trying everything I possibly could think of in my sick, twisted mind to get her to come back. The worst thing I did was send her a video of me taking about 20mg of Xanax with the caption "Dunno if I'll wake up from this lol." She had texted me probably 50 times while I was passed out and she was at class. Most of them were "Please be alive." She even said "I love you" like five times in desperation to get a response. I woke up and told her that I wish she hadn't said that because I knew it wasn't true.
Eventually she told me that she couldn't talk to me anymore and that if I died because of it, that it wasn't her fault. And when she did, I started messaging her on everything I could think of and telling her how much I loved her. How I didn't think anything but her and how perfect she was. How I didn't understand how she lost feelings for me because I did everything right. Begging her for an answer. Refusing every answer she gave me of being the truth.
I was so mentally unwell. I had romanticized both my depression and her inside my head beyond reality. She wasn't a human being. She was an angel that would rescue me from the darkness that I'd been stuck in for so long. After I was blocked from every social media account she had, as well as being unable to text or call her due to her changing her phone number, I was finally forced to face the truth. I was an absolute disaster of a person. I was burning myself with cigarettes, cutting myself with steak knives with the intention of leaving large scars, and hiding it all from everyone I knew. I went to therapy with the delusion of being reassured that I did nothing wrong in this whole situation.
My therapist was a godsend. He taught me about how awful of a person I was being and helped show me how sick I was. It took months of work for me to even realize how disgusting I was. I was completely delusional. I felt so bad. I was still obsessed with stalking her on social media, and I reached out on a burner account to apologize for everything I did. It was such a shitty apology, too.
She was receptive, but in retrospect I'm pretty sure she was only responding to me because she wanted to leave me with the idea that we were cool to avoid me reaching out in hysterics again. I even tried to manipulate myself back into her life by asking for her to introduce me to some new friends she had made that have similar interests to us. She politely declined and said that they'd definitely not like me after she'd confided in them about the trauma I'd caused her. She also told me to please never contact her again. I told her that would definitely be best. So I never did. And I stopped checking her social media.
I rarely think of her anymore, but the thing that I struggle with whenever I do, is that the way I acted and the trauma I caused this human being to be two of the biggest regrets of my life. The fact that I won't ever be able to truly apologize to this person for the rest of my life is incredibly difficult. I can't take any of the things I did back. I can't ever remove that trauma from her life. I've also kept this all a secret from my current girlfriend of six and a half years who I am in a wonderful, loving and mature relationship with. We plan on getting married and having kids within the next year. This secret is something I plan on taking to the grave.
I'm a completely different person than I was at that time in my life. But despite everything, I learned of every single toxic trait I had. And I learned to never, ever repeat any of the things I had done ever again. I learned so much about myself through years of therapy and that I was a powder keg of mental instability. My girlfriend would probably never think in a million years that I would have been capable of doing the things I'm admitting in this post.
I just wish it was possible for me to apologize to her for everything I'd done, and let her know that I wish her nothing but the best. I'd like to know that she's happy. Because she deserves it after everything I put her through. It's selfish, because it would make ME feel better. The best thing for this person is to probably go the rest of her life without ever hearing from me again, anyway. But I really do hope that they're happy out there somewhere.

2023.06.05 09:07 pmddthrow22 Sudden few hours of peace in the middle of PMDD

I'm only a few days away from my period so my PMDD is at its worst. A week of hell. But today I woke up, and it was like I had no PMDD at all. I didn't even have the insatiable hunger I normally have even after sleeping on an empty stomach. I was able to forego eating for a few hours during this small moment of tranquility. Lots of energy. I also had no mood swings, rage, or anything. I actually felt..happy? It was the strangest thing I've ever encountered before eventually being thrown back into PMDD hell maybe 5-6 hours later. I'm trying to figure out what I did the day before for my body to give me these few hours of peace today.
Yesterday: I had one meal of chicken and rice and fried sweet plantains. A bottle of gatorade. I did get a lot of exercise done in the form of cleaning my filthy room. The day before I had drunk an entire bottle of water which I never do. I don't know if it's the exercise or water or something else entirely, but I'm really racking my brain trying to figure out what could have stopped my PMDD dead in its tracks like that. What do you guys think it could've been? I'm really desperate to replicate this again.

Energy Audit Services in India: Unleashing the Power of Efficiency
"Saving Energy, Saving Money: The Power of Energy Audits in India"
Welcome to Shadow Energy the world of Energy Audit Services in India, where efficiency meets cost-saving measures in the most electrifying way! In a country that thrives on energy to power its diverse industries and burgeoning population, the need for optimizing energy consumption has never been more critical. Whether you're a business owner, a homeowner, or simply a conscientious individual, understanding the importance of energy audits can help you unlock hidden potential, reduce your carbon footprint, and save big on your energy bills. So, let's embark on an enlightening journey as we delve into the realm of energy audits and discover how they can revolutionize the way we consume and conserve energy.

What is an Energy Audit?
Energy audits are like the superhero sidekicks of the energy world. They assess, analyze, and uncover inefficiencies in energy usage, allowing individuals and organizations to identify areas for improvement. Think of it as a detective story where Sherlock Holmes, armed with advanced technology, investigates every nook and cranny of your energy consumption to find hidden savings. But instead of a deerstalker hat and a magnifying glass, energy auditors employ sophisticated tools and techniques to provide valuable insights into energy efficiency.
The Power of Efficiency: Why Energy Audits Matter
Imagine your energy consumption as a leaky bucket. No matter how much water you pour in, it keeps seeping out, wasting precious resources. Energy audits aim to plug those leaks and help you optimize energy usage. By identifying energy wastage, such as inefficient equipment, outdated systems, or poor insulation, energy audits enable you to take proactive steps towards energy conservation. They not only reduce your carbon footprint but also result in substantial cost savings. After all, why pay more for energy when you can use less and achieve the same results?
Energy Audit Services in India: Empowering Businesses
In the dynamic landscape of Indian industries, energy efficiency is a game-changer. Energy audit services offer a wide range of benefits to businesses, from small-scale enterprises to large corporations. By conducting a thorough assessment of energy consumption patterns, auditors can pinpoint areas of improvement and recommend cost-effective solutions. These may include upgrading to energy-efficient machinery, implementing smart lighting systems, or optimizing heating, ventilation, and air conditioning (HVAC) systems. The result? Enhanced operational efficiency, reduced energy costs, and a competitive edge in the market.
Enlightened Living: Energy Audits for Homeowners
Energy audits are not limited to the corporate world; they also empower homeowners to take control of their energy consumption. Imagine being able to identify energy vampires lurking in your household, secretly draining power and inflating your bills. Energy audits can uncover these hidden culprits, such as energy-hungry appliances, inefficient insulation, or outdated lighting systems. Armed with this knowledge, you can make informed decisions about energy-efficient upgrades, leading to significant savings in the long run. Who knew being an energy-saving superhero could be so rewarding?
Shedding Light on the Process: How Energy Audits Work
Now that we understand the importance of energy audits, let's shed some light on the process itself. Energy audits typically consist of three key phases: the initial assessment, data collection, and recommendations. During the initial assessment, auditors survey the premises, inspect energy systems, and gather essential information about your energy consumption patterns
Shedding Light on the Process: How Energy Audits Work
Now that we understand the importance of energy audits, let's shed some light on the process itself. Energy audits typically consist of three key phases: the initial assessment, data collection, and recommendations. During the initial assessment, auditors survey the premises, inspect energy systems, and gather essential information about your energy consumption patterns. This may involve examining utility bills, conducting interviews, and studying the building's architectural features. Think of it as the auditors getting to know your energy habits on a first-name basis.
Once the initial assessment is complete, it's time for the data collection stage. This is where auditors don their techno-gadgets and unleash a flurry of meters, sensors, and data loggers to measure energy usage across different areas. They analyze everything from lighting systems to heating and cooling units, identifying areas where energy efficiency can be improved. It's like being in a science fiction movie, with energy auditors as the brilliant scientists uncovering the secrets of your energy consumption.
After gathering all the necessary data, auditors enter the final phase: recommendations. This is where their expertise truly shines. Using advanced software tools and their vast knowledge of energy-saving techniques, auditors provide you with a comprehensive report outlining specific measures you can take to boost efficiency. They offer tailored solutions, such as upgrading to energy-efficient appliances, implementing smart controls, optimizing insulation, or even considering renewable energy sources. These recommendations not only prioritize energy conservation but also take into account the return on investment, ensuring that you reap the maximum benefits from your efforts.

The Power of Awareness: Benefits of Energy Audits
Now that we've explored the process, let's turn our attention to the numerous benefits that energy audits bring to the table. Firstly, energy audits provide valuable insights into your energy consumption patterns. By identifying areas of high usage and wastage, you can make informed decisions about energy-saving measures that will have the greatest impact. It's like having a personal energy guru guiding you towards a more sustainable and cost-effective lifestyle.
Secondly, energy audits help you save money. Imagine reducing your monthly energy bills without compromising on comfort or productivity. By implementing the recommendations from an energy audit, you can optimize your energy usage, leading to substantial cost savings in the long run. It's like discovering a hidden treasure chest filled with gold coins, except the treasure is a reduced electricity bill.
Thirdly, energy audits contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. As we face the challenges of climate change and depleting natural resources, every effort counts. By improving energy efficiency, we can reduce our carbon footprint and mitigate the environmental impact of our energy consumption. It's like becoming an eco-warrior, fighting for a better world, one kilowatt-hour at a time.
The Indian Landscape: Energy Audit Services in Action
In India, the importance of energy audit services cannot be overstated. As a country with a rapidly growing population and a diverse range of industries, optimizing energy consumption is vital. Energy audits are becoming increasingly prevalent across various sectors, from manufacturing and hospitality to healthcare and retail.
Take the manufacturing sector, for example. Energy-intensive industries often consume substantial amounts of electricity, making energy audits a game-changer in terms of cost reduction and sustainability. By identifying energy wastage, improving process efficiencies, and implementing energy-saving measures, manufacturers can significantly reduce their operational costs and enhance their competitiveness in the market. It's like turning on the power switch to a more prosperous and eco-friendly future.
The hospitality industry is another area where energy audits shine. Hotels, resorts, and restaurants consume significant energy for lighting, heating, cooling, and kitchen operations. Through energy audits, establishments can uncover hidden energy inefficiencies, such as outdated equipment, suboptimal temperature controls, or inadequate insulation. By implementing energy-saving measures, they not only cut costs but also enhance guest comfort and demonstrate their commitment to sustainability. It's like giving guests a five-star experience while being environmentally responsible.
Even healthcare facilities can benefit from energy audits. Hospitals and clinics have high energy demands due to round-the-clock operations, advanced medical equipment, and complex HVAC systems. Energy audits help identify areas of improvement, such as optimizing lighting, implementing efficient cooling systems, or utilizing renewable energy sources. By reducing energy costs, healthcare facilities can redirect resources towards patient care and improve overall operational efficiency. It's like providing a healthier environment for both patients and the planet.
The Road Ahead: Government Initiatives and Incentives
The Indian government recognizes the importance of energy efficiency and has introduced several initiatives and incentives to promote energy audits and sustainable practices. For instance, the Bureau of Energy Efficiency (BEE) has launched the Perform, Achieve, and Trade (PAT) scheme, which focuses on energy-intensive industries. Under this scheme, industries are assigned energy-saving targets, and those exceeding their targets can sell their excess energy savings as certificates, incentivizing efficient practices.
Additionally, the Energy Conservation Building Code (ECBC) sets energy performance standards for commercial buildings, promoting energy efficiency in the construction sector. The government also provides financial assistance, tax incentives, and grants to encourage businesses and homeowners to adopt energy-saving measures identified through energy audits. It's like the government joining forces with auditors and citizens to create a more sustainable and energy-efficient India.

In a world where energy consumption plays a significant role in our daily lives, energy audits offer a ray of hope. They empower businesses and homeowners to take control of their energy usage, reduce costs, and contribute to a greener and more sustainable future. Through a meticulous process of assessment, data collection, and recommendations, Energy Audits Services unveil the hidden potential of efficiency, unlocking opportunities for substantial savings and environmental conservation.
So, whether you're a business owner seeking to streamline operations or a homeowner striving for a more energy-efficient household, consider harnessing the power of energy audits. Embrace the superhero sidekick that reveals energy inefficiencies, eliminates wastage, and transforms the way we consume and conserve energy. Let's embark on this electrifying journey together, illuminating a path towards a brighter, greener, and more sustainable India.

2023.06.05 09:06 throwawaytheatre2834 AITA for calling my friend childish for confronting her teacher?

My (18F) best friend (18F) met in high school. We both just graduated.
We did theatre all throughout HS, and she consistently had problems with our drama teacher. She talked a lot about how he supposedly hated her and how this grudge fueled her exclusion from roles and other opportunities in the program. In particular, she was really upset when he picked another student for a slot in the senior showcase over her, and she quit theatre altogether after that incident.
Now, I love her dearly, but this is somewhat of a pattern. She has a tendency to feel personally targeted by authority figures in her life and convinces herself that they are out to get her. This is not the only time she has had issues with a teacher like this.
On the last day of school, she texted me to say that she was going to go to his room and “tell him off” for showing favoritism and making her hate theatre. I told her not to do this and to just let it go because it could only go poorly. She insisted that she’d “be respectful” and that she didn’t care what he thought of her. Honestly, I didn’t see a “respectful” way to confront a teacher like this, and I cared less about his opinion than I did about her embarrassing herself with this show of pettiness. So I once again told her not to do it and said it’s a childish thing to do.
She left me on opened for the rest of the day and only texted me again hours later to curtly tell me she’s glad she did it AND that she played a recording of the interaction for her parents and they were proud of her for standing up for herself. Ignoring the fact that recording him without his knowledge is totally illegal, I swallowed my annoyance for the sake of not turning this into a big thing and just said if she’s happy I’m happy, and I asked her how the rest of her day went. She didn’t reply, clearly upset by my lack of support and probably my “childish” remark in particular. She’s been cold with me since.
I know what I said was harsh, but I felt she needed to hear it—especially given her history with these kinds of things. I admit that our theatre program is a bit clique-y and there’s definitely an “in-group” (+ the girl that beat her out for the showcase spot was in that group), but I feel that crying favoritism is a tad pathetic because whatever, it’s high school theatre, plus those “in group” people are truly really talented so it’s not like they weren’t qualified. She has a right to feel the way she does, but cornering him right as she’s about to graduate to air out her issues with him to his face was just not right or mature in my opinion. I feel bad because she clearly felt empowered and confident before and after, but I worry that my support would mean she won’t want to take the high road in similar situations going forward. I feel I have a responsibility as her best friend to tell her when she’s being unreasonable and her judgment is clouded.
So, AITA for not supporting her and saying she was being childish?

2023.06.05 09:05 everydaygoose 2 weeks of minimizing my pulling! Going to start documenting growth progress as I continue trying to stop

This is the first time I have looked at my head without no product (Toppik powder) in over 2 years. Every time I would wash my hair I would let it air dry and then instantly shake the powder on my head before using a mirror to finish covering the rest. I was too scared to see what my head looked like because I knew the whole top of my head was mostly bald or patchy. A little over three weeks ago something clicked in me…tbh I still don’t even know how or why but suddenly my urge to pull my hair was almost gone. I went from pulling during almost all hours of the day to being able to count only pulling 1-5 hairs a day. I have had trich for 12 years now and this is the first time my urges have gone down this low. So I decided I’m going to try and stop for good, and document my progress on here as a visual to help me keep going and hopefully help some of you too!

2023.06.05 09:05 GuacamolEBola I quit smoking and now have nightmares every night. What do i do?

I stopped smoking and now I have nightmares every night. What do I do?
I [26m] quit smoking 2 weeks ago, and before then had been smoking everyday for about 6 years. Now, I have nightmares every night. Some of them more vivid and realistic than others, but nightmares nonetheless. Before I quit, I couldn’t even tell you the last time I had a dream; in fact I would kinda brag about being someone who “never dreams,” because my nights would go by very quickly. I would fall asleep and wake up seemingly immediately, and it would already be morning. I liked it that way.
Now, I dread falling asleep and it takes me usually a couple hours to actually do so. And tonight I woke up from a dream where not only did my ex-gf expose me for a pretty humiliating incident, but then an old friend-turned-enemy found me and got in my car to beat the shit out of me. I woke up with a migraine that strongly resembled how the dude had been hitting me. I even had to check in the mirror for bruises and a black eye, but there was nothing there. I only slept for about 2 hours, and I don’t plan on getting any more sleep tonight.
I’ve read and heard from others about how smoking everyday or right before bed can affect your brains ability to get REM (rapid eye movement) sleep, which is where most dreams occur. So I’m not necessarily surprised that I started dreaming again. But I’m more worried about what will happen if these nightmares never stop. They’re always very different, and almost never about the same things or people.
I originally quit smoking because a friend of mine that I play games online with everyday convinced me to quit with him, because “it’ll be easier if we do it together,” which is true. It was easier to quit knowing he was quitting too, and that I’d have someone to bounce side-effects off of and process the pros and cons of quitting. However, when I first told him I’d been having nightmares, he told me he “hadn’t really started dreaming again yet.” We’re supposed to make it a month or two (depending on how we feel after month one) without smoking, and I still want to do that. the pros I’ve experienced while I’m awake include faster thinking, better short-term memory, and more confidence. So I don’t really want to lose the progress I’ve made with those things.
I guess my main question is has anyone else experienced this before, and if so, how long did it take for the nightmares to cease, and is it worth it if I plan on going back to smoking in another couple of weeks? Thanks.

This way, we can do the “sourcing” part done for you and place you in a high-paying offer ASAP. We can’t guarantee done-for-you placement for EVERY single person who takes us up in the program gets placed. So because of this, I’m also going to give you…

Free Bonus #2: My Done-For-You List Of Perfect Clients™

This is a hand-picked list of perfect companies who need remote closers who are not are clients (at least yet, 😉 It’s a DFY list of small FB and Linkedin Groups as well as other segmented lists of perfect clients. How do I know it’s perfect? Because it’s the same exact list my team uses to prospect for our clients. So we know it works 😉 And remember: I’m already giving you copy & paste outreach messages so you can land a contract, fast. They’re the EXACT messaging templates I used when I got my first contract with NO experience. I sent 54 of these templates and got 5 offers within 7 days!

Strapped on time? If you invest TODAY, I’ll give you a special training series I originally created for Tony Robbins & Dean Graziosi.

Combine this WITH the rolodex + DFY lists, you could have a gig in as little as 7 days!

BONUS #4: Ascension Masterclass™

Remember how I was telling you these business owners HATE taking sales calls? Well, guess what’s the only thing they hate MORE than taking the actual calls? Managing the sales team. Believe me: This is the LAST thing these business owners want to do. And because of this, they’ll pay a hefty % of the profits to a sales integrator who can do this FOR them… The Ascension Masterclass™ is currently the ONLY training material that shows you how to go from closer → sales integrator.

BONUS #5: Access To The Vault™

It’s one thing for me to teach you all the tactics and sales techniques. But how much faster would you be able to learn it if you could see it in real time? In the vault, you will have access to personal call recordings and breakdowns of ME. That way, you can simply model my behavior to start making big money ASAP.

Simply by using the copy-and-paste message + DFY list of clients I give you, you’ll sit back and watch as opportunities are falling in your lap. Now, once you’re talking with the business owners… what if I could give you the right answers to every single question they’re going to ask you? That’s exactly what the interview cheat sheet is. I’m basically giving you the answers to the test, before you take it. How do I know it’s the right answers? Because I’ve consulted over 1000 sales teams and am considered the industry leaders in that space. Believe me, I know all the questions. Hell, half of them learned from me, anyways 🙂 Imagine how blown away the business owner will be when you nail every single question that they ask…That’s exactly what this cheat sheet will do for you.

BONUS #7: Elite Subcommunication & Tonality™

2 closers. Same scripts. Different results. Why? I’ll show you subtle subcommunication & tonality cues causing avg. salesppl to miss easy sales. And, you can deploy power cues & triggers that make you WILDLY persuasive to most prospects.

2023.06.05 09:04 ComprehensiveHand539 Baap ka pressure

Hello, lemme start with some context. So for 2 years I was prepping for jee I was studying very hard and was my batch topper. But in end of feb my parents came to live with me and fucked my mental health and so I scored less than my expected but still a good enough rank got 99.34%ile and fucked by advanced really bad because all my motivation was gone to study because no one was appreciating what I did instead blamed me and fought with me literally every second day for very long hours. So I gave up on IITs.
But now advanced is over they are blaming all the things on me and saying take a drop and go to Kota and are not accepting their mistakes and how badly they fucked me up. Obviously I can’t even say why my prep was ruined to them because that is really rude if I make them realise their mistakes. Also he is saying he can’t pay the fees but he can pay all my expenses for a year with his one month salary
I don’t want to take a drop because I know they will never be happy always blame me for things. How do I convince him to take me to IIIT’s

Extracurriculars: pretty good but idt their considered exceptional for many of the schools I'm applying to

Green Team - Co-President (12), VP (11), Head o. Communications (10), Shadow Officer (9) - in charge of organizing and planning meetings and various events, managed communication between officers and sponsors through emails and social media, as of rn me and co pres are in charge of finding a new sponsor
Crochet Club - Co-President (12), VP (11), Founder (10) - same duties as listed with Green Team, helped teach members how to crochet and gave out advice on crochet
Crochet - tutored others in crochet, had a crochet business in 9-10 grade (had to stop in 11 because it got in the way of school), have a passion project for crochet in the form of an instagram account documenting projects and my crochet journey, potentially might start a non-profit but still figuring out details for if its plausible for me

Common App Essay - solid 7/10 averaging the ones i've started, language arts teacher last year told me I'm one of the strongest creative writers she has and she's very tough on writing. I have what i think might be good topics (might be generic tho in terms of my demographic), I've started on multiple essays for my strongest topics: red and the multiple meanings it carries (i.e. culture, events, people, memories, objects), being torn between my passion for the arts vs academics (as my ecs lean heavy on the arts so that addresses that a bit) and how that divide affects my relationship with those, or my tumultuous history with instruments and my cultures effect on that relationship
11th LA teacher - she's my school mom and I love her sm, she's seen me really grow in my writing (and as a person) and has helped me to be able to get more creative with it as well. Whenever I need god advice she's one of the first people I turn to and she's probably my most trusted adult at school; I can ask her about pretty much anything and she won't judge (i'm able to talk with her ab my mental health and how school's been affecting it which I can't really talk ab it to my parents because they don't really believe that much in mental health if its not something obvious), we're pretty close and i even got the chance to write something for her wedding as well, she's definitely going to be a teacher that I'm gonna visit a lot senior year
ap chem teacher - she's seen me really grow as a person over the year and out of all my teachers, she especially can testify to my curiosity, drive to learn, and my determination/dedication as she knows i've stayed up late many nights so i could get good calculations and pre/post-lab questions (i'm surprised i didn't drive her crazy with the sheer amount of stuff i asked too), we're pretty close and i also tie-dyed a onesie for her upcoming baby
Note: my schedule got really messed up in junior year so I wasn't able to take many aps then so trying to make up for it with senior year (considering the self studied ap i did, I'm around 2-3 aps behind most of the top students at my school so my ranking is thus a lot lower than it could be, school offers around 20 aps but many are blocked behind prereq classes), schedule resulted in me taking senior year science in junior year as well an additional credit of Chinese instead of another AP (now at 3 years of Chinese, conversational level)
Schools: going for the ivies and JHU are considered me shotgunning I'm pretty sure considering my ecs lol
Idk which admission path yet so if anyone has any advice on deciding which admissions path would be most beneficial for me, that would be greatly appreciated: JHU (idt its legacy but i have several aunts and uncles that have attended), Cornell, UIUC (legacy, leaning towards EA), UChicago (legacy from grad school, admission path and if i even submit an application is hinging on how creative the writing prompts are gonna be), UPenn
EA: UGA, Georgia Tech
RD: MIT, UMich, Georgia State University, Kennessaw State

2023.06.05 09:03 lonely_dotnet Feeling little urge 24 hours after quitting and starting gum

As the title says. I quit my vape like 29 hours ago. I recently went through a lot of traumatic events In my life and a long episode of self destruction last month that has left me broke and alone and harboring alot of guilt and remorse. I decided there needs to be change in my life and It starts with my addictions holding me back from any potential.
That vape was pretty much dead and starting to give me only headache when I quit so I imagine that the nicotine levels in my system must have already been low by the time I started on the gum. I got the 4mg and for the first 24 hours I was getting a stronger urge to hit the vape do the action of hitting vape blowing smoke. But I got through the rest of the day, night, and today. I noticed that after the nicotine of the gum runs out I don’t really have the urge to readminister, I can smoke mj and satisfy the need to blow smoke. The urge is very minimal and it’s easy to make them go away by distracting myself or by doing breathwork. But I am actually on my last joint of that and about to quit cold turkey as well after being high since a teenager.
I can smell smells again. I can be in the present moment again. It’s nice to feel what I’m feeling again. I feel like I have control.
If it gets bad maybe I’ll end up taking a half of a 4mg gum to satisfy it but for the most part it feels good and empowering almost , denying myself the urge to smoke or chew gum.
Also want to say I got on an Ssri about 2 mos ago.
Cheers, screw this sinister chemical, the corporations and individuals that peddle it, and its grasp on humanity.

2023.06.05 09:02 Global_Tree_Careers After 4 Rejections, Indian Student Finally Gets Scholarship, Flies to USA

After 4 Rejections, Indian Student Finally Gets Scholarship, Flies to USA
An Indian student has finally managed to secure a scholarship after four rejections. He is now studying in the US on a Fulbright scholarship, as per reports.

A Pune-based engineering student has made it to the US after four rejections.
You may have heard of the story of an engineering student from Pune who was rejected four times by US universities( Example: ARIZONA state university, HARVARD university) but finally made it to the country with a scholarship.
But how common are visa rejections? How do you get a visa to the US? What are the requirements for student visas and scholarships? Let's find out!
Visa rejection is common, but there are ways to overcome it. According to an article on The Times of India, "In 2015 alone, over 1 lakh students had applied for visas through govt.in portal and only 65% succeeded in getting one."
There are several reasons why students might not be able to secure their desired destination: lack of funds or inability to meet other criteria like English proficiency test (like IELTS, PTE and TOEFL) scores or financial status (for example if you have no money left after paying off debts). Another reason could be a lack of awareness about how much time one needs before applying for the desired course/university etc., which may result in applying too late (or too early) resulting in rejections due either way; this issue can be solved by doing research beforehand so as not waste any precious time later down the line when deadlines approach closer than expected!
"I was always confident that I would make it someday," says Akansh Gupta.
After being rejected three times, I decided to try again. Akansh received a scholarship from a US university in December 2018 after four rejections. He is now studying at the University of Minnesota Twin Cities (UMTC) as an electrical engineering major.
What made him go for another try? Akansh was not willing to give up on his dream
If you're a student who has been rejected by your university, don't lose hope. You might be able to get a scholarship and study abroad. It will take some time to start your life as a student in USA.
I applied to the U.S. Department of State's Fulbright Scholarship program, which awards grants to American citizens who want to study or teach abroad (or learn more about another country). It offers scholarships for academic research projects in the United States or abroad and professional development opportunities through teaching assistantships at American universities.
I got called by them after four rejections from other institutions! The application process was very simple; all I had to do was fill out an online form with my CV and other relevant documents such as transcripts from my previous degrees etc., followed by an interview via Skype where they asked me questions about my research proposal, why did I choose this topic etc., which lasted around half an hour at most."
To become a successful applicant for scholarships to study in USA, you must be persistent. You might face rejection after rejection, but don't give up! If you keep at it and apply for as many opportunities as possible, eventually one will come through for you.
Global Tree study abroad and immigration consultants were incredibly helpful throughout the entire process. From guiding me through the visa application process to helping me choose the perfect program to study abroad, they were there every step of the way. Their expertise and knowledge of the industry made me feel confident in my decisions, and I couldn't be happier with the outcome. Thanks to Global Tree, I am now pursuing my dreams of studying in the USA and building a future in a new country. I highly recommend their services to anyone looking to make their dreams a reality! If you're reading Global Tree reviews to make your decision, let me tell you, they are worth every penny!

2023.06.05 09:01 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?

What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do?
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress.
Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels.
Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure.
Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha.
What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.

2023.06.05 09:01 301nm I (21M) need opinions on this situation with my girlfriend (23F)

I 21(M) have some observations and questions about my girlfriend’s 23(F) behavior. Quick info: we’ve been dating for a couple of years, I’m her first “real boyfriend” so I kinda knew what to expect in this relationship. She comes from a broken home per say so I assume she is used to a chaotic situation (ex: parents always arguing, etc.).
Anyways, some things about her that I have noticed include childish behaviors like wanting to be babied when having an attitude, saying something bothers her then immediately dismissing it by saying “nevermind”, and a few other similar things. (Red flag: she’s threatened to break up once over an argument but stopped after I checked her) You can see where this is going now. So basically she’s on one of her attitudes and I’m not having it so I dismiss it. I put my foot down and tell her that I’m not tolerating this behavior. In her mind, she thinks I don’t care about her when I literally show affection to her normally. She blocked me temporarily out of “being annoyed” and “not wanting to be bothered”. So I tell her to keep me blocked and she gets upset at me?? I’m no doormat and I have strict boundaries so I don’t like childish behavior. I think she blocked me as a cry for attention or something, maybe to get a reaction out of me so she can feel like she’s wanted or whatever. I did snap at her and warned her not to do it again or I’d leave. She got aroused and admitted that she likes when I’m mad and that she wants me to (“fuck her while I’m mad and tell her how bad she is” 💀). Basically disregarding why I’m upset over being blocked as a way to garner a reaction out of me. AITA for telling her I’m not tolerating manipulative behavior? Does she not respect me as a person? Should I break up with her? All opinions are welcomed

2023.06.05 09:00 shivamshad What is Aortic Dissection?

More than 12,000 people lose their lives from an aortic dissection every year in the United States. An aortic dissection begins with a tear in the aorta wall, causing the main artery in the body to split. If the dissection is not treated right away, the tear might progress, ripping the aorta's outer layer and enabling blood to escape the artery. Aortic stenosis causes a reduction in blood flow to key organs such as the brain, kidneys, and even the heart, which can be fatal. Many people who suffer from an aortic dissection die instantly, and the chance of death increases by 3–4 percent every hour if the problem goes untreated.
To provide readers with a better understanding of aortic dissection, Dr. Sujay Shad, a leading heart doctor in Delhi at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital, has explained the same in this blog.
Aortic dissections can be classified in two ways:
It is important to identify aortic dissection at the earliest possible time since a tear that extends through the aorta wall is deadly.
What are the Symptoms of Aortic Dissections?
When an aortic dissection occurs, one might experience the following symptoms, which are similar to those of a heart attack:
What Causes Aortic Dissection?
Patients with poorly controlled blood pressure are at a higher risk of experiencing aortic dissection. Additionally, patients with existing connective tissue diseases, such as Marfan’s syndrome, Ehlers-Danlos syndrome, etc., also have higher chances of experiencing aortic tears. An existing aneurysm, polycystic kidney disease, or even chest trauma are all risk factors for aortic dissection.
Is it Possible to Prevent Aortic Dissection?
The easiest way to avoid an aortic dissection is to keep the blood pressure under control. It is vital to comply with all medical therapy to ensure healthy blood pressure in the long term. This will help in protecting the aorta from any complications that might cause severe consequences in the long run.

How is Aortic Dissection Diagnosed?

Since aortic dissection is frequently mistaken for other cardiac problems, such as a heart attack, the doctor will perform tests to rule out other potential causes of the symptoms. One would have to undergo a series of tests such as an angiogram, x-ray, MRI, CT, ultrasound, echocardiogram, or transoesophageal echocardiogram (TOE).
To learn more about aortic dissection or to learn how much heart surgery cost in Delhi, book a consultation with Dr. Sujay Shad at Sir Ganga Ram Hospital. Besides aortic dissection, the expert surgeon also performs other heart surgeries such as coronary bypass surgery, heart valve surgery, ECMO, heart transplants, and many more.

2023.06.05 09:00 IcySir7954 $19/hr 5 min commute or $30/hr potentially 1hr commute each way?

I posted this in another group and got a lot of mixed opinions. I just received new information about the higher paying job as well.
I was recently laid off from my marketing job. I’ve been looking for similar pay $80-90k per year, but it’s been tough and I haven’t found anything close to my house.
The $19/hr job would just be temporary to help pay the bills/not in my field. The $30/hr job is in my field. I’m not stuck on staying within my field. Both are 40 hours a week.
I’ve already negotiated the $19/hr so there is no possibility for increase in pay. Same with the $30/hr. I already asked about remote work for the higher paying one and it was a hard no. I also don’t have the means to move due to personal finances (my father in law passed due to Covid last year leaving us with a lot of medical expenses.) The new job is also in a much more expensive area which is not in the budget right now. Public transport is out of the question Bc the metrolink does not stop at the San Clemente pier at the times I would need to be at work/leave.
$19/hr I would be working an opposite schedule of my husband having no days off together. $30/hr we would have Sunday’s off together.
The commute: I would be commuting from Oceanside to San Clemente. Roughly 23 miles each way. I’ve heard mixed reviews about the commute only being 30 min to other people saying it will be upwards of an hour. The $30/hr job I would be starting at 8:30 am and ending at 5pm. Also asked about flexibility in hours and this is the set schedule.
My car info: I get about 31 mpg highway and 36 mpg city. My car is newer and has barely any miles. It usually costs me about $40 to fill up my tank from almost empty.
Can anyone give me some advice on what you would do? I could take the lower paying job temporarily while I look for a marketing job close to home, but the higher paying job wouldn’t leave much time for me to do that. TIA

Save 2 minutes of reading with this summary:
France has passed the bill to ban short-haul flights through parliament where a train alternative of 2.5 hours or less exists—something that has been in place, practically speaking, for a while. A lot of private jet journeys are taken in the country—the most frequent private jet trip in 2022 was between Paris and Nice, consuming four times more carbon per person than a commercial flight and 800 times more than the train, according to Le Monde. That being said, the bill is historic as it completely rules out the chance for airlines to run services between several of France’s large cities—Nantes, Lyon and Bordeaux—and Paris, as the bill dictates that no airlines are allowed to start a new business to fill the void.

2023.06.05 08:58 ThrowRA67879865 I(36M) not sure if my friend (31F) wants more than friendship

TL;DR I really cannot tell if my friend is interested in me or if I am misinterpreting her signals.
We basically met at work and we both developed a friendship from the start, we had banter, we could speak for hours after work. Often we would wait for each other to walk back together. We went out for a couple drinks and I started to fall for her. The sad thing was that when I opened up about my feelings to her was on the day she decided to move to another city to be closer to her ill father. She did not outright reject me but said lets see what happens, but that she dislikes LD relations. Since then we still kept in touch and I felt like I was getting flirting hints from her, complimenting me, my looks whenever she could, then she invited me to come see her ideas on what a ''date'' is. I went over for a long weekend and it was brilliant we spent 2 days together but I didn't make any moves or nothing on her, it was 2 days of conversations, movies, drinks. On the last night I was coming back she seemed distant, I said see you soon and her reply was ''let's leave it at that, see you soon''. Did I miss any of her signals?

2023.06.05 08:58 Spritetm Heads up: June 12th protest of Reddit's API changes

This subreddit will be joining in on the June 12th-14th protest of Reddit's API changes that will essentially kill all 3rd party Reddit apps.

What's going on?

A recent Reddit policy change threatens to kill many beloved third-party mobile apps, making a great many quality-of-life features not seen in the official mobile app permanently inaccessible to users.
On May 31, 2023, Reddit announced they were raising the price to make calls to their API from being free to a level that will kill every third party app on Reddit, from Apollo to Reddit is Fun to Narwhal to BaconReader.
Even if you're not a mobile user and don't use any of those apps, this is a step toward killing other ways of customizing Reddit, such as Reddit Enhancement Suite or the use of the old.reddit.com desktop interface .
This isn't only a problem on the user level: many subreddit moderators depend on tools only available outside the official app to keep their communities on-topic and spam-free.

What's the plan?

On June 12th, many subreddits will be going dark to protest this policy. Some will return after 48 hours: others will go away permanently unless the issue is adequately addressed, since many moderators aren't able to put in the work they do with the poor tools available through the official app. This isn't something any of us do lightly: we do what we do because we love Reddit, and we truly believe this change will make it impossible to keep doing what we love.
The two-day blackout isn't the goal, and it isn't the end. Should things reach the 14th with no sign of Reddit choosing to fix what they've broken, we'll use the community and buzz we've built between then and now as a tool for further action.

What can you do as a user?

What can you do as a moderator?

Thank you for your patience in the matter,
