"I vote the liberal government in every election because they're good for business" is a common saying amongst many adult Australians. Is this statement backed by facts or is it simply propaganda that's repeated by misinformed Australians?

LPT: Dreading something? Avoidance makes it 100x harder because it completely disempowers you. When the only way out is through, turn and face the discomfort, take a deep breath and walk towards it. This is neuroscience-backed, see full post.

The following is from a Harvard Business School neuroscience based behavioural course I did.

Your brain is your hype man, and tries very hard to prove you right using emotions as feedback. Once you decide on your goal, emotions are the hints your brain uses to help you decide whether a certain situation HELPS or HINDERS your progression towards that goal. In turn, this influences your behaviour. Thoughts - Feelings - Behaviour. Nothing is inherently good or bad, it is all relative to what you are trying to achieve. Read that sentence again.

If your goal is avoidance, then any progression or confrontation is going to feel very uncomfortable because your brain will be going "nope, this is bad. This is not what you wanted. Sending bad feedback." You can just as easily shift your goal (this is what mindset is, and it IS up to you) and in turn, change your brain's response to the stimulus around you (emotions). Even if it is an uncomfortable situation, your brain will recognise that it's helping you achieve your goal, so the feedback it gives you (emotions) will be much more positive. It all starts with what you want to achieve and if you don't know, then spend some time figuring that out. Goal clarity is like giving your brain a quest marker.

You are hardwired for struggle, go forth in courage my comrades!

hospital-wear isn’t just an open backed gown! you can request pants and underwear

updates based on comments:

  1. some hospitals may only have gowns
  2. sometimes the preference is for a patient to only wear a gown depending on their abilities and needs
  3. some places let you bring your own clothes or at least your own underwear
  4. your own preference and ability to prepare may vary

the backstory: i spent a few weeks in the hospital a while ago and i wore a gown with no underwear for much of the time. they double gowned me when i had to walk around. i don’t even know why i couldn’t have my own underwear since the area or interest wasn’t my bottom half. eventually a CNA told me i could have hospital issued underwear and pants!

hopefully someone finds this helpful and tucks it away for a day where they want to add dignity to a hospital stay. and if you’re in the medical field and want to clarify or correct some assertions i made, i’m happy to receive that.

and mini vent: why the eff is it normal to not tell people about the pants? i can see that some patients might have bathroom needs or other conditions that make pants inconvenient but why don’t we start with a full set of clothes and remove things as needed?

PIVX research and analysis by facts backed by the proofs. It's my opinion, don't hate, rather ask questions, I will gladly answer and discuss them.

Full disclosure, I'm PIVX investor and I'm biased.

TLDR; PIVX is the ONLY Proof of Stake project with zk-SNARKs privacy. It's heavily focusing on (hard)Core Development activities for more than 2 years now without signs to stop, even speeding up even more. After the libzerocoin library exploit back in 2019, PIVX dropped completely out of the radar, while it was in 2017 top 10 cryptocurrency by market cap, even bigger than Zcash which is a billion dollar market cap project now. So, PIVX is coming back now after 2 years with the most advanced zero knowledge cryptography as the only project that managed to integrate it successfully into the Proof of Stake blockchain.

In my humble opinion, there are many reasons why PIVX is currently one of the hottest small cap projects on the market. Here is the list of facts for everyone to check and verify which should help you to do the proper research.

On Jan 30, PIVX launched SHIELD; An industry first; zk-SNARKs meets PoS. With privacy back, incredible tech & functionality, it will rejoin other large privacy projects.

At Monero Market Cap, PIVX is ~$42. (70x)

At Zcash Market Cap, PIVX is ~$15. (25x)

Reasons why PIVX has tremendous upside:

  • Massively undervalued.
  • Low market cap. Limited available supply.
  • Becomes deflationary once many transactions are happening on blockchain.
  • No ICO or premine, SEC-safe as it is a utility coin.
  • SHIELD activated on Jan 30th (zk-SNARKs privacy).
  • Proof of Stake. Therefore no centralization bias.
  • Regulatory compliance: AML/FATF and Travel Rule.
  • #1 ranked in the world by development activity. (source: CryptoMiso.com)
  • Strong Community/DAO.
  • Self funded and sustainable.
  • ATH of $14. That was the Moon. Next stop is MARS!
  • Rewards of approximately 8-10% via Hot or Cold Staking, or 10% for running a Masternode.
  • Extremely fast transactions with near zero fees.
  • Listed on many major exchanges such as Binance, Bittrex, Kucoin, Bithumb, CoinEx and more.
  • Even on Living Room of Satoshi where Australians can pay their utility bills etc.

NOTE: Do your own research and feel free to ask if you would like to know anything more in detail.

Its time Labour backed banning circumcision

The UK Government currently bans any form of FGM which is absolutely right, however no one is prepared to acknowledge that circumcision is also a form of genital mutilation and one often given to people that cannot give consent. Circumcision is a barbaric practice that must and should be criminalised.

Young baby boys cannot give consent to such disgusting procedures when they are only a few hours old at most.

The UK has a great modern history of campaigning for human rights and taking a stand against those who inflict harm on others. Circumcision is another sick form of inflicting harm on others and is genital mutilation that should be banned.

Do you agree that the Labour Party should formally lead the campaigns to ban circumcision in the UK and call on the government to criminalise this barbaric act of mutilation?

EDIT: I acknowledge that there are some medical reasons for circumcision being necessary and I therefore concede that it should be allowed in these minor circumstances, however it should still otherwise be banned and criminalised for everyone else outside of medical necessity.

I use video games with the Pomodoro technique to study 8 hours a day (and it’s all backed by science)

Background: ex- Harvard Medical School Neuroscience Postdoc and ADHD connoisseur.

I lost my job halfway through 2020 and I had to study like a maniac to get my current research data scientist job.

I clocked 8 hours a day using the Pomodoro technique with a 40/20 split every hour, and during the break I played Skyrim, Halo, Legend of Zelda... you get the drift.

I found that video games helped me relax and have eureka moments more than doing anything else. In fact I recently used a EEG device and found video games really did help me program better.

The results were supported by a study which found that playing League of Legends for 1 hour significantly boosted visual concentration and attentiveness: https://www.frontiersin.org/articles/10.3389/fnhum.2020.00101/full?utm_source=fweb&amp;amp;utm_medium=nblog&amp;amp;utm_campaign=ba-sci-fnhum-action-gaming-attention

Most of my β€œeureka” moments came to me while gaming lol.

For people who want all the tips I use to study during lockdown, I made a lil video, please like/subscribe if it helps you out :) https://m.youtube.com/watch?v=hdYSwZh2Ybg

Tl;dr: I use video games to help me concentrate and the reasons are backed by science lol.

I almost backed out of a 2 month volunteer trip to Bali while I was in the airport waiting to take off.

I (29F) was in the airport waiting to get on the plane for Bali and so many things were going through my head. I was terrified to travel across the world alone where I wouldn’t know another person for thousands of miles and I was scared to get picked up in the middle of the night in a foreign country by a stranger! I was even texting my sister about backing out after completely rearranging my life to follow this dream of mine.

But I knew I had to go. So I got on the plane, still terrified, eyes full of tears and I started my journey across the world and embarked on a trip that little did I know, would ultimately change my life forever✨🌍 ✈️

When I arrived at the airport, I discovered that my roommate who was going to be in the same program and was actually on the plane with me, so I didn't have to get in a car with a stranger alone at all...We actually became best friends, and that two months teaching English became the best two months I've ever had in my life.

What scares me now is the fact that I almost DIDN’T go. What TERRIFIES me now is the fact that I almost backed out and missed the opportunity of a lifetime. I will never let fear get in the way of my path and I strongly hope that you don’t either because you could be missing out on something that could end up being extremely pivotal in your journey of life πŸ¦‹βœ¨

*EDIT: I've had so many people reach out and want to know more about the volunteer program I went with. I am so eager to share because of the following:

  1. My experience was so amazing that I wish everyone could experience it for themselves...

  2. I am not an ambassador or anything for the company, but I know the founder/ the locals who work at the program and they are always looking for volunteers. It's such a good cause that I am happy to share about it.

If you would like to check out my instagram, Ann_mariek- I have an awesome "highlight" that really captures my full volunteering experience. I know when I was researching for my trip, watching actually people's stories on Instagram was extremely helpful in deciding. Feel free to check it out and reach out with any questions :)

Co-worker backed me in a corner and triggered an anxiety attack while I was at work.

Today sucked. On a mobile and not really caring how bad my grammar is tonight.

I have one colleague (call him Mark, not his name and English is not his first language.) who has been with us for about three months. He is bigger, taller, and older than I am, but I have seniority and I’ve been asked to be lead tech so I am supposed to train and manage him on a minor level.

I don’t know what his issue is but he has been undermining me for the last few months and I finally got reprimanded by my boss for being too aggressive and blunt and the only person who could have been making these complaints was mark.

So boss tells me to disengage. I start handing his management off to another manager and I’m frankly glad. This guy has been driving me up a wall for the past few months his performance is frankly lacking and I’m sorry we ever hired him.

Today Mark couldn’t understand anything I was telling him. I asked him to not have packages shipped to the lab addressed to me that were actually for him. He blew it up until I had to get the lab manager involved. Everything today was one fight after another.

Finally when I had thought everyone but myself went home for the day Mark cornered me at my desk demanding an explanation as to why I was treating him differently today. I explained that I was reprimanded and that I was asked to disengage.

Mark starts pushing into my space. We are on strict COVID policy at my company, you have to have two managers approval to work within six feet of each-other for fifteen minutes. And Mark was invading my space and was getting loud. He is denying that he had anything to do with my being reprimanded and I started to back off just trying to de-escalate but I guess he didn’t believe me cause he just kept pushing.

I told him to leave and he wouldn’t I finally turned off my computer and tried to leave the lab but he physically body blocked the only exit from the aisle my desk was on until someone else was walking to us and I was able to get past him and leave.

I was in full flight or fight by this point and I just broke down in my car.

Finally got my manager on the phone and was hysterical for that call. Now I get to have a meeting with them tomorrow morning and I just don’t want to. He is going to make excuses and talk over me and I just don’t ever want to talk to him again.

I guess I just wanted to tell the universe about my sucky day and how freaked and pissed I am that this guy triggered my anxiety which I had been
