Program that reads celsius temperatures from a text file and creates new file with a chart of celsius values to kelvin and Fahrenheit

Hello, I have made some progress on a program Ive made the main issue is that I don't know if I can use outfile and infile in the same program.

Prompt:

Using the temps.txt data file which has temperatures in degrees Celsius create aΒ new data fileΒ (table.txt)Β that consists of a table of three rows of temperatures in Celsius, Fahrenheit and Kelvin. The equation to convert Celsius to Fahrenheit is:

F = 9.0/5.0 * Celsius + 32.0

To convert Celsius to Kelvin add 273.15 degrees.

``````#include &lt;iostream&gt;
#include &lt;fstream&gt;
#include &lt;iomanip&gt;
#include &lt;string&gt;

using namespace std;

int main(void)
{

double start, end, incr;
double Celsius, Fahrenheit, Kelvin;
ifstream infile;	// declare file pointer
if (!infile)
{
cout &lt;&lt; "Error. could not open file to read" &lt;&lt; endl;
}
cout &lt;&lt; "Input file opened" &lt;&lt; endl;
float temperature;

cout &lt;&lt; fixed &lt;&lt; setprecision(2);

while (!infile.eof()) //check for end of file
{
infile &gt;&gt; temperature;  //read a number from the file
cout &lt;&lt; temperature &lt;&lt; endl;
}
infile.close();
ofstream outfile;
cin &gt;&gt; start;
cin &gt;&gt; incr;
cin &gt;&gt; end;
cout &lt;&lt; "Celsius" &lt;&lt; '\t' &lt;&lt; "Fahrenheit" &lt;&lt; ' ' &lt;&lt; "Kelvin" &lt;&lt; endl;
do
{
Fahrenheit = 9.0/5.0 * Celsius + 32.0;
Kelvin = Celsius + 273.15;
cout &lt;&lt; Celsius &lt;&lt; '\t' &lt;&lt; Fahrenheit &lt;&lt; '\t' &lt;&lt; Kelvin &lt;&lt; endl;
Celsius += incr;
}
while(Celsius &lt;= end);
outfile.close(); //close data file

return 0;
}
``````

The text file with temperatures in order is:

12.3

5.5

15.6

21.2

16.8

19.7

22.3

19.6

14.8

22.0

21.5

17.6

16.3

18.7

19.4

12.8

11.2

8.9

17.5

19.2

11.6

23.4

When I run the program nothing happens, but I would like some input on how to improve my code.

Does anyone have any tips/resources for charting using Celsius as opposed to Fahrenheit?

Maybe a chart that checks temps to 2 decimal places, as well clear information about thermal shifts, etc.

TIA!

How to run good as a beginner.

Hey. I'm not really a great runner, but I did manage to get myself from really obese to really fit, and managed to turn running from my most hated form of exercise to my favourite.

This is a small thread of advice for beginners, rookies, chubsters and turtles. I've learned this stuff over a 2-3 year period and it's really helped me a lot.

πββοΈπ First of all, I started running because I wanted to lose fat. I had been going to the gym a lot and got pretty bulky, but my fat percentages were still off the charts. So I decided to take up running, unbeknownst to me that it would change my life.

π§  A wise man once told me that the exercises you find the hardest, the ones that you would do anything to avoid... those are the exercises really challenging your body, making the deepest impact. So if you suck at dips, do dips. If you hate squats or pull-ups... do that. And if you feel like running is terribly tedious, boring, painful, soreness-inducing, well... you should definitely train to become good at it.

Here is some stuff that you should be really thinking about:

1. Make running as pleasant as humanly possible.

As a beginner, just remember that your goal is to build up the habit and the musculature/joints/circulatory systems before you can be good at running. This takes at least a few months, so just take it easy and make the path as attractive as possible.

This means that you can take it slow, you can (and should) alternate running and walking, you can even speedwalk your 'distance' if you are sore/recovering.

1. This may be controversial to some, but try to learn midfoot* striking from the start.

People will say heel striking can be just as good. But running barefoot will very quickly teach you that the human body was designed to run on the balls of your feet.

Yeah, I do believe that you can run on your heels and not hurt yourself, but midfoot striking builds up more calve/foot muscles. And that's great when life forces you to run even if you're not wearing your favourite sneakers.

EDIT: as u/somethingevenwittier said in the comments:

"Generally great advice....except for #2. If you run barefoot or in Vibrams then maybe it's OK, but most running shoes are designed for a heel or midfoot strike.

Simple advice is to shorten your stride. This prevents you from over extending your foot and heel striking hard. Doing this and running tall are the only two cues you need while running (IMO).

I tried forefoot running in Vibrams for a couple y

TCOYF + celcius

I've recently gotten back to charting after a few months break, and even though I've successfully used Natural Cycles for 35 cycles, I've decided to switch over to TCOYF. I know NC has a bad rep here, so no need to comment on that π I do however need a bit of guidance with the temp-rules as I'm using celcius and not fahrenheit. How do I figure out my cover line in Celsius? What about the other temp rules - what are they in Celsius?

Thank you in advance. I really want to do this properly, and Google has not been terribly helpful on this matter

Help choosing the breed of my first dog! (I would also love any advice you have on working a 9-5, happy to have a walker)

What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?

I really don't mind, the important thing for me is that I get a dog who will be happy with the life I can give him, and whose needs I can meet. I would like a big dog though I think

What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?

I'm looking for a great companion, I live alone with no kids, and I'm very active, I love to walk, run and hike, so I would love a woofie who would like to join me on these adventures!

What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs? Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

I have never had a dog, I've only helped look after my dad's dogs for a month at a time while staying with him.

Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

No other pets.

Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?

No children, and none visiting. But perhaps in 7 or 8 years, it's possible.

Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease? What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apartment, townhome, single-family home, etc)?

I rent a 2-bed apartment, there are no restrictions on pets.

Who lives in your household and who will be responsible for taking care of the dog? How do the other members of the household feel about having a new dog?

I live on my own and I will take care of him. I am prepared to have a dog walker 3/4 days a week when I have to go to the office.

How often do you have visitors to your home?

Quite rarely

Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a knowledgeable and reputable breeder?

I'd like a rescue dog.

Do you want a puppy, a young adult (1-3 years), an adult, or a senior? Why?

I think young adult would be good, that way I can be sure of his personality, and that he will be OK some days chilling alone for 4 hours or so.

What size dog are you looking for? Here is a size chart for your convenience.

36-40 inches

How much barking is too much barking?

I'd prefer not so much barking. Barking during play and such is fine, or to get my attention, but

Something I learned recently is that morning temperatures correlate to phases in the menstrual cycle. Tracking your temperature upon waking is helpful if you're trying to get pregnant, avoid pregnancy or simply want to empower yourself and understanding of your body.

>Before ovulation, early morning temperatures typically range from about 97 degrees to 97.5 degrees Fahrenheit (36.11 to 36.38 degrees Celsius), and after ovulation, they usually rise to about 97.6 degrees to 98.6 degrees Fahrenheit (36.44 to 37 Celsius). Itβs helpful to use a special basal or digital thermometer to get readings that are precise enough to track such small changes.
>
>After ovulation, your temperature usually remains elevated until your next period, about two weeks later. But if you become pregnant, it remains high for more than 18 days. Source

I've been tracking my own temp since reading "Taking Charge of Your Fertility" by Toni Weschler (saw recommended in this sub) and it's been incredibly useful for planing my life and self care. The method is called "Fertility Awareness method" (FAM) and it is based on the scientific principles of menstruation and reproduction (see link above).

Something else I've learned from the book is that not all cycles are 28 days (myself in that category, I used to think there might be something wrong with me that I wasn't falling into that exact time frame)

>Ilene and Mick were virgins when they got married on May 21. They wanted to start a family soon after their wedding, so they had their joint medical insurance start on May 15. When they discovered that Ilene had gotten pregnant on their honeymoon, they were pleasantly surprised that it happened so fast. Imagine their shock when the insurance company refused to cover the pregnancy and delivery, claiming that since her last period started on April 19, she must have gotten pregnant about three weeks before the wedding. βThatβs impossible,β she insisted, βwe were both virgins until our wedding day.β She tried to explain to them that her cycles had become quite long and irregular since she started jogging and dieting in order to be a βpicturesque bride.β The insurance company wouldnβt hear of it. They adhered to the frequently used pregnancy wheel, the calculating device that doctors rely on to determine a womanβs due date (see A Typical Pregnancy Wheel of the color insert).

PSA Regarding COVID-19: A Warning

If you just want to learn how to reduce your risk of catching COVID-19, scroll down to the "Risk Reduction" section. However, to appreciate the full scope of the challenge ahead, you are encouraged to carefully read this entire document, which will be updated regularly as long as it stays on the front page of your sub.

The aim of this document is simple: it's best to walk into something knowing what you're about to face. It also aims to reduce anxiety, panic, and misinformation by arming you with key sourced information, all without downplaying the risks of COVID-19.

The document has gone through hundreds of iterations thanks to global community feedback, including from places such as Seattle, LA, Australia, and Canada. Although all facts are meticulously sourced from experts in their fields, you are responsible for your own health and your own research.

Further, contextualization of information remains an ongoing challenge, as does keeping up with a fluid situation. Final word will always belong to the health authorities, as well as the mods of this subreddit.

Now brace yourself, because this is going to suck a little bit.

#CONTEXT:

A recent in-depth study has shown just how incredibly infectious COVID-19 is. Unfortunately, its spread has not slowed, and the virus has only been halted through stringent physical distancing measures.

In other words, and as the Director of the WHO himself has said, this is not a drill.

The bad news: There are currently over 420,000 global confirmed cases of COVID-19, and the WHO has classified it as a pandemic. Now it seems that it has arrived upon your doorstep, which means there is likely exponential and silent human-to-human transmission in the community.

The good news: knowledge is a weapon that defeats these things. It worked in 1918 against the Spanish Flu, when we essentially stopped the medieval practice of blood-letting (you know when they drained you of blood because they thought that would cure whatever ailed you? Or leeching?). And it worked against

Hey everyone, lets talk about the climate crisis! There seems to be so much disinfo and misinfo floating around out there, lets get down to some real hard research

Every conspiracy sub/platform is filled with so much bizarre misguided notions about the climate it makes me a little annoyed. I have been studying this a long time and would like to share some things with you in regards to the accuracy of climate models.

Frist off the idea that CO2 is the main driver of temperature on earth, and that emissions from fossil fuels will cause global warming, is very old!

>Article from 1912 warns the world about climate change

>They were a little optimistic in 1912, but they understood that adding carbon to the atmosphere has side effects.

>In the March 1912 edition of Popular Mechanics, an article on the balmy year of 1911 and the ability of humans to change the climate includes a single line that has shocked some modern readers. The caption for a photograph of a coal plant explains that:

>βThe furnaces of the world are now burning about 2,000,000,000 tons of coal a year. When this is burned, uniting with oxygen, it adds about 7,000,000,000 tons of carbon dioxide to the atmosphere yearly. This tends to make the air a more effective blanket for the earth and raise its temperature. The effect may be considerable in a few centuries.β

https://bigthink.com/surprising-science/1912-climate-change-prediction?rebelltitem=1#rebelltitem1

That was in 1912 already. They fully understood that human emissions from gas and oil would raise CO2 levels and warm the planet. This is not a new theory people!

The climate models have largely been shockingly accurate, regardless of what you might have heard. Amazingly so given how little tech they were using decades ago. A recent study looked at a bunch of older climate models dating back to 1970. Guess what? Most were freakishly accurate.

>Even 50-year-old climate models correctly predicted global warming

>The researchers compared annual average surface temperatures across the globe to the surface temperatures predicted in 17 forecasts. Those predictions were drawn from 14 separate computer models released between 1970 and 2001. In some cases, the studies and their computer codes were so old that the team had to extract data published in papers, using special software to gauge the exact numbers represented by points on a printed graph.

>Most of the models accurately predicted recent global surface temperatures, which have risen approximately 0.9Β°C since 1970. For 10 forecasts, there was no statistically significant difference between their output and historic obser

TIFU by forgetting Fahrenheit exists

This happened last night and I still canβt get over how stupid this was.

My family decided to buy these beautiful (very expensive) tomahawk steaks for NYE. We had just gotten it a new barbecue but didnβt have the right opportunity since it was mid December. We decided it would be a waste of these beautiful steaks to prepare them in the oven so decided to brave the -3 degree Celsius cold, and prepare them on the grill. We wanted to ensure that they were properly cooked so we watched many tutorials and read all the recipes and decided we were ready. We put them on the grill and after some time and we measured the internal temperature. Now, I thought weβd go for a rare temperature, and by the time they rested, the temp would go up a bit and weβd have some medium-rare steaks, right? I looked up a temperature chart, and decided we wanted to be somewhere around 120-125 before resting. We must have grilled those steaks for 50 minutes when we had only reached 75 degrees and decided to put them in the oven because at this point it was 11 PM on NYE and we hadnβt eaten yet. I take them out of the oven and leave them to rest and at 11:30 on NYE I cut into the steaks and they are downright almost crumbling from how charred and overdone they were. I canβt even describe how overdone the meat was since Iβve never seen anything like it. Even with a newly sharpened knife, they were hard to cut. I was devastated. I followed all the instructions, how did this happen? Friendly reminder, that Iβm in Europe and my meat thermometer works with Celsius. Cue my idiot realisation: the chart I looked up was in Fahrenheit not Celsius. I think my steaks almost measured 90 C (almost 200 F) internal temperature, let alone the outside bits. The steaks were literally inedible so I cut them up into tiny chunks and used them as a crunchy topping over the mash and we ate mash and salad for NYE.

TL;DR Decided to splurge on expensive steaks for NYE, and burnt them to bits because I accidentally used a Fahrenheit steak doneness chart when my meat thermometer read in Celsius

Summary of collapse, near-term and long-term

Long-time lurker here. I realized this morning that I needed to put together my current understanding of collapse (and the maps/data I've collected) in order to have a baseline for new discoveries. And since things are moving faster than expected, these discoveries are all too frequent.

Please note, a lot of these maps were saved down without realizing that they didn't adequately explain the legend or display the source. I have tried to source things with maps where indicated, but a lot of this stuff is conventional at this stage, so please take this more as a mile-high overview than a data dump. If this helps anyone else, I'm glad. Please correct me where I've misrepresented something!

Near Timeline

• 2020 - World is currently locked into 1.5 to 1.8-degree Celsius warming over baseline in mid-1700s. Arctic, Siberia, etc. are already experiencing 20-30 degree fluctuations above baseline in winter (northern climate is more susceptible to warming). Map: March 2020 Fluctuations vs. 1890-1910 Baseline
• 2020, 2021 - Northern India to continue suffering severe water shortages. Himalayan glacier melt will exacerbate this in future, denying water downstream to millions.
• Early 2020s - Jet stream continues to weaken in northern hemisphere as Hadley cells deteriorate. Extreme weather systems (drought or storms) tend to stick around longer and cause greater damage. "One in 100 year" storms, heat waves, etc. become routine. Map: Rossby Wave 5 & 7 Sticking Points: Five, Seven
• Early 2020s - Forest fires in the north, and in drought-susceptible areas (California and others) accelerate. Forest burn-off introduces more carbon into the atmosphere and denies the world of one more heat sink. Map: Forest Fire Potential in the US
• Early 2020s - Economic automation continues. Efforts to re-shore manufacturing to the US/out of China doesn't revive jobs, as companies revive manufacturing with as much robotic automation as possible. Increasing poor/vanishing middle class cause social instability. The trades, and other historically "safe" (if not physically demanding and stigmatized) jobs, including historically safe white-collar jobs like tax preparation or accounting, are subject to torrential increases in applicants and jobseekers, allowing downward pressure on wages and squeezing of productivity.

FS2004/X: What I've Found Out So Far About Weather [Followup to my previous post]

As a followup to my previous post, here is information I have been able to come up with *SO FAR* about the inner workings in Flight Simulator 2004: A Century of Flight, and Microsoft Flight Simulator X.

This information was derived from analyzing the .WX file that accompanies a saved flight, something I should have tried doing a long time ago.

For the time being, assume this mainly applies to FS2004: A Century of Flight (since I still want to test these findings on FSX - even though it is possible that even the specifics about bit-width etc do remain consistent between versions. I also don't know if any of this is applicable to Prepar3D. If this info being applicable to FSX ends up being the case, I will edit this message later]

Weather Related Notes:

Altitude:

Altitude is entered by the user as an integer. This user-entered value represents the altitude in feet.

The altitude is also represented as in integer, and in feet, for the purposes of displaying altitudes on the chart where you can line up weather layers, and the like.

Internally, this value is stored as a 32-bit float representing the altitude in meters. This means that, with some tweaking, you could theoretically have wind layers, pressure layers, cloud layers, etc, that are fractions of feet, even fraction of inches apart.

Temperature:

Temperature is entered by the user as an integer value representing the temperature in Fahrenheit.

Internally the value is stored as a 32-bit float that represents the temperature in Celsius.

Pressure:

Pressure is entered by the user as a 32-bit float representing the pressure in Inches of Mercury (or Hg). The accepted input range is capped to a range of 25.00 <= X <= 35.00.

Internally, the value is stored as a 32-bit float that represents the pressure in hectopascals (or hPa)

Wind:

Sustained and Gust-To Wind Speeds:

Wind is entered by the user as an integer value, representing the wind speed and wind gust speed in knots.

Internally, this value is stored as a 32-bit float.

You can easily edit the limits that the text box, and adjacent up/down control to have a value range of -2,147,483,648 <= X <= 2,147,483,647. This value, however, is only for what input the user enters, and doesn't get used to validate that the value is in the correct range.

Wind Shear Strength

This value is a simple integer that has a value of 0 <= X <= 3, with one value representing each of the wind shear st

New to FAM for TTA

Hi all! Browsing through this sub has been super helpful. It guided me towards Sensiplan. Just finished reading the English translation of the handbook and I have a few questions. A bit of background first.

I used a sympto-thermal method of tracking my cycle with Fertility Friend and their Advanced detector for nearly a year and a half before getting pregnant with my son. We were diagnosed unexplained infertility and conceived spontaneously in cycle 17, 4 cycles post HSG, 1 cycle post Clomid+IUI. I wasn't following any specific rules like are outlined in Sensiplan or TCOYF (bought the book and holy crap is it a tome...it's next on my to read list). Just daily temp tracking, following my CM patterns, and taking LH tests but those were less reliable for me. So anyway, I'm very familiar and comfortable with temperature and CM tracking, right now it's mostly getting back into the habit after not quite 2 years. I just had my Mirena pulled on Friday and I've had some light bleeding that could be withdrawal bleeding but I've also had cyclical bleeding every 37-40 days since the start of the year when I stopped pumping breastmilk and I was also due for my "period". I went ahead and just counted it as CD1 as a fresh start. My husband and I both decided to drop the Mirena as a form of birth control and move to FAM because the Mirena has absolutely killed my libido and we're both over it. Intentions Scale - TTA3. We'd like to try for a second child eventually, but we aren't in a big hurry to make that happen.

Questions!

1. I had just renewed my Fertility Friend VIP annual subscription a few months before successfully conceiving but I've seen some negative feedback over FF as a good FAM app. Is there really a huge problem with using it? I put my membership on pause and just started it up again and I'd really like to get what I paid out of it. Whenever I see a screenshot from an app like Kindara I'm just confused as all get out. I've set up a bunch of custom data fields so I can track CM according to the Sensiplan method and I currently have the detector set to FAM instead of Advanced mode, not sure how much that really matters. Are there any other suggestions on making FF work well? For example I know you can manually set your own coverline and ovulation date.

2. Sensiplan rules for temperature taking - The English translation uses Celsius but my BBT thermometer is Fahrenheit. Can someone please tell me what the F equivalent is supposed to be for the third high te

Is it Covid-19, or has it always been like this?

Good lord, I have had a deluge of whiny crybabies recently, and really always have, it just seems like more lately for some reason.

1. A few years ago, I did some corporate training for some side money with a recruiter, and was teaching phrasal verbs. I just gave the class a few examples and used "shut-up" (which everyone knows well) as and example, then explained that it's not really an abusing word, a bit rude, but just means be quite. Don't need the "up" part, but just shut the mouth upward. These people, WELL past the age of adulthood, acted like I jumped up on the table, pulled my pants down and took a dump right in front of them. Sour looking faces, suddenly no one wanted to talk or participate that day or the following. They paid for a 2 week block with an option every 2 weeks. They cancelled after the first 2 week block. Mental note: never use "shut up" in any circumstances, even when speaking to 45 year olds.
2. "Crazy Monkey." Yep, some brat went home after I taught a day at a winter camp and told his mom I said he was "crazy." Ugh......I just told the staff every kid in the class realizes that's a fun word, and the brat left off the "monkey" part, and we all just came to the conclusion that saying "Crazy monkey" to some kids, is the equivalent to jumping up on the table, pulling my pants down and taking a dump right in front of them. Mental note: no "shut up" for adults, no references to insanity with kids.
3. Another older private adult I teach 1:1, challenges nearly every grammar point, when he is corrected and wants a scientific answer as to why it's my way and not the way like he said. Since I'm not an English major, I can't really explain why an adjective goes before a noun in some cases, and not in others. "The adventurous man / The man is adventurous." Well why isn't it, "The man BE adventurous?" It goes on and on pretty much 4 or 5 times a session like that, and when I can't explain every situation, he just shakes his head, gets sassy, mutters something to himself in Korean like "Boy this foreigner doesn't know anything about his own language, why am I paying for this?" Teaching older stubborn men in the sciences like engineering is a disaster. They are in charge of people all day, and they don't like to be the subordinate, they need to control the classroom even though they know nothing. They need technical reasoning for everything. Pronunciation: There IS a technical l

March 2020 ABV Survey Update (300+ submissions)

#Wow!

When I posted the original 100 results at the beginning of the year we had no idea what kind of year this would turn into.

But we crossed 300 responses and I wanted to update everyone.

All results are user submitted and as such are NOT to be used as medical advice. Results are anecdotal, have a wide variance, and require information we cannot accurately collect (tolerance, metabolism, headspace, etc.)

Here is the current results sheet To protect the document, it's locked. However if you'd like it is able to be downloaded and sorted so you can potentially find the optimal setup based on your vape, and temperatures.

###Most Used Vape Companies

So I did my best to organize these by brand, and then specific models. Below is the top 5 brands represented with the number of replies:

• Dynavap - 53
• Pax - 51
• Airizer - 42
• Storz & Bickel - 30
• X-Max - 14

Quite the drop off from 4th to 5th.

###Starting THC Content

So the average known THC content was 21.67% however less than 1/3 of you get your Cannabis from a source that provides testing information. Hopefully if we all survive this year, we can pump those numbers up or if you prefer, grow your own!

###ABV Darkness

Scale for reference

Current results

So it looks #3 gang is starting to rise up, gaining 4.3%, options #4 and #5 losing some ground, and #1 surprisingly getting 4 responses.

###Consumption

Over half of you (51.6%) eat ABV a few times a year or less. But 27.4% eat it more than once a week, with monthly pulling the remaining 21%.

Here's a chart

###Potency Effectiveness

So, all this data collection is boring. I get it. You wanna know how high you're gonna get. Well, according to the results You'll probably get to a 4-5. For reference the chart used in the form.

• 1 - 6.5%
• 2 - 13.4%
• 3 - 10.7%
• 4 - 16.1%
• 5 - 12.6%
• 7 - 12.3%
• 8 - 9.6%
• 9 - 1.9%
• 10 - 4.20%

###HOWEVER

The most listed effect is drowsiness, couch-lock, and an overall body high. So I wouldn't plan a productive afternoon around eating your ABV or ABV extract. But there is mentions of pai

This may sound stupid, but do you think Michael and Cary are smart, but not smart enough to know that Clouds, Lightning, Rubies and (Possibly) Rocks can survive lava?

When BFB 15 was about to come out, I made a quick bingo chart that is basically who I think survived, and it is reveal that Cloudy, Lightning, Ruby, and Rocky didn't survive. This doesn't make sense because:

• Clouds are made of gas
• Lightning isn't made of matter
• Ruby have a melting point of 3,400 fahrenheit. (1871.111 celsius)
• Rocks can survive lava. (Well, a rock might not turn out the same when it's out of the lava)
• Also Gaty survived for a while in the lava in BFB 1, but can't survive a splash of lava in BFB 15.

Does this mean that Michael and Cary, people who can data visual stuff and convert data in sound, don't know that clouds, lightning, rubies and possibly rocks can survive lava?

help choosing a dog

It may take awhile

**What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?**

* Iβm interested in dogs that may be easier to train for service work and that are good for psychiatric work, since Iβll most likely be owner trainer and I want it to be my psychiatric service dog. Iβd really enjoy a dog with long or curly fur as fur is something that calms me. I really like border collies, but Iβve been informed that they are more difficult for first time handlers.

**What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?**

* The dog is expected to become a psychiatric service dog for me because I have selective mutism and generalized anxiety disorder. I was told I could also be diagnosed with social anxiety and depression, but they refused to since I cannot speak. The dog would help me out of my episodes where I completely freeze, keep a distance between me and others, get me to be able to go where I need to go (I often find myself stuck in a room out of fear), get the attention of someone that I need when I canβt, provide deep pressure therapy, and other things to help me in daily life.

**What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs?** Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

* Iβve had 3 dogs before. I helped care for the last one that was put down because she bit someone. She was a husky mix from off the street, I think she was aggressive because she was abused in the past. My very first dog went into her senior years and got ill and her puppy was actually my second dog. He passed away because he was allergic to a lot of things and got sick. Iβm not sure of the breeds because they were very mixed. I have not trained dogs before, but I have trained my bunny.

**Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets?** If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

* Cat, female, around 6 years old. Rabbit, male, around 3 years old. Guinea pig, male, around 1 year old. Turtle, male, unknown.

**Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?**

* No

**Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease?** What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apart

[Breeds] help me decide what my next breed could be!

Hello! Iβve been doing some research on what my next dog breed might be. I have a young smooth collie right now, and heβs been a joy. Curious to know if it makes the most sense to get a second one down the line once Iβm ready, or if another breed might complement us better.

What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?

• Currently interested in smooth collies, labs, and maybe standard poodles. Generally looking for a fun, sweet, and smart breed that has good drive and a good off switch too.

What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?

• First and foremost, a companion. I live a pretty active βweekend warriorβ lifestyle. Iβd also love to be able to play fetch/frisbee, go swimming, and potentially compete in agility. Also able to join on camping and backpacking trips without much fuss.

My current dog fits these criteria quite well, except for the water and fetch parts. Weβve been working on fetch but heβs not great at bringing it back. Heβs overall very cautious, which seems to make sense for his breed, so water currently makes him nervous, not sure if this will change as he gets older.

What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs? Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

• I have a 7.5 month old smooth collie who is my first dog as primary care taker. Iβve been taking care of him since he was 2 months, and itβs been a challenge but a joy. We currently do agility classes which we both love, he knows plenty of tricks, and everyone who meets him comments on how well behaved he is. I donβt consider myself an experienced dog trainer by any stretch but Iβve put a lot of effort into learning how to do right by my boy

Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

• 7.5 month old male smooth collie

Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?

• not any time soon no, not many children visitors at all

Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease? What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apartment, townhome, single-family home, etc)?

What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?

• Westies - don't shed that much, adorable, independent, loyal, small size.

• Goldendoodle - don't shed that much, cute, playful, loving, affectionate, friendly, smart, easy to train, smaller size
• I had allergic reactions to certain dogs and cats, that's why I'm looking for hypoallergenic breeds.

What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?

• Companion. We want our dog to be active but can also be a lap dog. We want the dog to be playful and can play by itself, and is able to stay by itself when we are out.

What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs? Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

• We don't have experience of owning a dog. We dogsit for our friends' 5 year-old chihuahua mix for almost two weeks. It was a very pleasant experience. We don't have experience with training dogs either.

Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

• We don't have other pets.

Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?

• We don't have children.

Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease? What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apartment, townhome, single-family home, etc)?

• I live in an apartment, our building is not allowed to have large dogs.

Who lives in your household and who will be responsible for taking care of the dog? How do the other members of the household feel about having a new dog?

• I live with my partner and we will be taking care of the dogs together.

How often do you have visitors to your home?

• Once a while. We would like to take the dog with us to visit our friends and families when we go visiting them. Some of them have dogs at home as well.

Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a knowledgeable and reputable breeder?

• We prefer going through a reputable and knowledgeable breeders for now, since we don't have experience and it has been difficult to find a dog t

[Breeds] Is a Portuguese Water Dog the best fit?

What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?

• Portuguese Water Dog (my 8 almost 9 year old daughters choice think based on look), Barbet, Poodle. Weβre considering breeds that are better for allergy sufferers. I had a toy poodle growing up that was wonderful but kinda wanted to try something a bit bigger and (I know this is weird) but a less βpointyβ snout. Obviously my last preference is ridiculous and doesnβt really matter. Iβm open to whatever breed makes most sense.

What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?

• I want a lazy cuddle dog but not a fluff ball (also weird donβt like seeing itβs bottom so no shibu inus). So for me a PWD doesnβt seem like the best fit. Having said that my daughter wants a more active dog with higher energy but sheβs 8 and has never had a dog. Iβve been researching the breed and realize itβs going to be a challenge and definitely a change from a poodle.

What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs? Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

• I have only had a poodle that I got when I was 6. In reality my mom was itβs caregiver. The end of its life happened when I was in college. Any senior issues my mom faced but it really didnβt have any per se. She tried to train it but just as far as house training it which didnβt work really.

Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

• No

Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?

• My daughters friend sometimes visits. She is insanely high energy so that would have to be addressed prior to any visits.

Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease? What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apartment, townhome, single-family home, etc)?

• Rent and no restrictions. Apartment 6 floors on 3rd with elevator. Single family income with help from ex.

Who lives in your household and who will be responsible for taking care of the dog? How do the other members of the household feel about having a new dog?

• Myself and my daughter.

However, to appreciate the full scope of the challenge ahead, you are encouraged to carefully read this entire document, which will be updated regularly as long as it stays on the front page of your sub.

The aim of this document is simple: it's best to walk into something knowing what you're about to face. It also aims to reduce anxiety, panic, and misinformation by arming you with key sourced information, all without downplaying the risks of COVID-19.

The document has gone through hundreds of iterations thanks to global community feedback, including from places such as Seattle, LA, Australia, and Canada. Although all facts are meticulously sourced from experts in their fields, you are responsible for your own health and your own research.

Further, contextualization of information remains an ongoing challenge, as does keeping up with a fluid situation. Final word will always belong to the health authorities, as well as the mods of this subreddit.

A recent in-depth study has shown just how incredibly infectious COVID-19 is. Unfortunately, its spread has not slowed, and the virus has only been halted through stringent physical distancing measures.

My first watchfaces at Connect IQ store: WeatherBarsH and WeatherBarsV. Advices on design and improvements are very welcome!

WeatherBarsH is a free watch face with bright and easy 3 day weather forecast in a novel horizontal bar chart format. Time font and icons are anti-aliased.

Legend

Temperature in Fahrenheit is supported

In real life :)

Please note that WeatherBarsH and WeatherBarV (see below) are weather watch faces, they cannot indicate your HR, steps etc. at this moment. They provide 100% support for Garmin Fenix 6X, 6X Pro and Sapphire watches with 280*280 screen resolution and they need the latest CIQ v3.2.

Fenix 6 and 6S may have some slight differences and not fully optimized, but still should work. More Garmin smartwatches may be added in the next release.

WeatherBarsV is another free watch face with bright and easy to read 3 days weather forecast in a traditional vertical bar chart format. Time font and icons are anti-aliased

WeatherBarsV:

Legend

In real life

Data available for both watchfaces:

• Date in the (day of week) dd . mm format;
• Week and day-in-a-week numbers;
• Weather from Garmin servers: current conditions and 3 days forecast in Celsius and Fahrenheit (no API key is required, but your smartwatch should be connected to your phone via Bluetooth and hence has connection to Internet);
• Smartwatch Status (Bluetooth, Notifications, DND, Alarms);
• Dual time (2nd Time Zone);

These watch faces support English language only yet.

These are my first ever Connect IQ watch faces (please be kind!), so I look forward to your feedback, improving and bringing them to more devices, adding more options like wind speed in mph, changing status icons to steps and floors numbers etc.

• We are renting an apartment. There are no restrictions on the breed, however we won't adopt any dog or cat aggressive breed. One of the reasons we posted on this forum is because we did research into the aforementioned breeds (Whippets and Basenjis) and saw they might not be appropriate for a cat.

Who lives in your household and who will be responsible for taking care of the dog? How do the other members of the household feel about having a new dog?

• My dad will generally be the only person in charge of the dog.

How often do you have visitors to your home?

• Once a month (much less since Covid)

Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a knowledgeable and reputable breeder?

• No

Do you want a puppy, a young adult (1-3 years), an adult, or a senior? Why?

• Puppy, this seems most conducive to being around our cat

What size dog are you looking for? Here is a size chart for your convenience.

• Medium 25-50lbs

How much barking is too much barking?

• Would like to avoid if possible

How much regular brushing are you willing to do?

PSA Regarding COVID-19: A Warning

If you just want to learn how to reduce your risk of catching COVID-19, scroll down to the "Risk Reduction" section. However, to appreciate the full scope of the challenge ahead, you are encouraged to carefully read this entire document, which will be updated regularly as long as it stays on the front page of your sub.

The aim of this document is simple: it's best to walk into something knowing what you're about to face. It also aims to reduce anxiety, panic, and misinformation by arming you with key sourced information, all without downplaying the risks of COVID-19.

The document has gone through hundreds of iterations thanks to global community feedback, including from places such as Seattle, LA, Australia, and Canada. Although all facts are meticulously sourced from experts in their fields, you are responsible for your own health and your own research.

Further, contextualization of information remains an ongoing challenge, as does keeping up with a fluid situation. Final word will always belong to the health authorities, as well as the mods of this subreddit.

Now brace yourself, because this is going to suck a little bit.

#CONTEXT:

A recent in-depth study has shown just how incredibly infectious COVID-19 is. Unfortunately, its spread has not slowed, and the virus has only been halted through stringent physical distancing measures.

In other words, and as the Director of the WHO himself has said, this is not a drill.

The bad news: There are currently over 300,000 global confirmed cases of COVID-19, and the WHO recently classified it as a pandemic. Now it seems that it has arrived upon your doorstep, which means there is likely exponential and silent human-to-human transmission in the community.

The good news: knowledge is a weapon that defeats these things. It worked in 1918 against the Spanish Flu, when we essentially stopped the medieval practice of blood-letting (you know when they drained you of blood because they thought that would cure

[Breeds] Looking for an advise on getting a dog - your opinion is appreciated!

Hello everyone! I am looking for your thoughts and opinions. My husband and I are looking into getting a dog and trying to figure out what would be the best breed for us. We have a house and a large backyard. There are a lot of forests around, so we can go on long hikes. We already had dogs (me - small poodle) when we were younger but I would not call myself and experienced owner by any stretch. So far, I work from home few days a week till end of August. Later, I might have to go back to the office but not sure. (My office is 15 from the house). My husband works on and off from home. Later, I will most likely go on maternity leave and stay at home for at least a year. So this will give us time also to be with the young dog. We were also thinking of getting a kitten in parallel, so the dog would have a companion but that's still in discussions. I had a dog and a cat growing up together and it worked very well.

Below is the answer to the questionnaire you posted.

**What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?**

* I am looking at the following breeds because I am looking for the following characteristics in a dog:

1. Pointers
2. Dobermans (still on the fence with that one)
3. Beagles
4. Shepherds (not sure which ones...)
5. Poodle mix (but not sure if they are available where we live...)
6. Labs

Characteristics

1. medium size (could be a bit bigger if manageable)
2. sporty (preferably able to go on 7-10k+ runs and may be even run next to a bike?)
3. easily trainable and friendly with other dogs, kids & babies (we have a lot around)
4. not too hairy (we do not want hair everywhere)
5. doesn't drool too much
6. listens well (so possible to go without a leash sometimes)

**What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?**

* To be a sporty companion. Get along with babies, kids and other animals.

**What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs?** Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?

* I had a poodle growing up. He was very easygoing and did not need much training. He was with us from puppy to old age.

**Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets?** If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?

* Currently we have fish. We were thinking it might be nice to get a kitten at the same time as a puppy so they grow up together...

**Do y

[Help][Discussion][Breeds] Help me decide what kind of dog I should get!

**What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?**

* Labradors, Australian Shepherds, German Shepherds, Dobermans, Border Collies, among others. I would like an active adventure partner (who has an off switch and can cuddle on the couch after a long day of hiking), who can be trained well (will be working with a trainer, I don't mind if it's a slightly more difficult dog to train due to intelligence, like a border collie, I just want to be able to train it well), and can participate in dog sports with me. I'm very open to hearing why other breeds are better suited to me, as well.

**What role is your dog expected to fill and how do you envision your dog fulfilling that role?**

* I imagine my dog coming camping, hiking, on backpacking trips, enjoying being outside, well-mannered enough to come with me most places. I imagine my dog and I working together in some sort of dog sport, whether that be advanced obedience, dock diving, etc...I don't want a super independent dog - I like them to be cuddly towards me. I don't mind a protective dog, as long as it's just barking and not lunging and remains appropriate.

**What experience do you have owning dogs? How about training dogs? Have you been the primary caregiver of a dog before? If yes, what breed(s)? What is your experience with puppy or senior dog care?**

* I currently am the primary caregiver of a 3 y/o brindle boxer, and we work with a trainer. She is proficient in her "useful" obedience around the house (e.g. kennel up, sit, leave it, wait, settle, etc...) but the trainer is helping us while we are outside. I have not personally cared for a puppy, although my roommate has (and I spent the day with the puppy 4 days a week) and my family has.

**Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? If so, what breed/type, age, and sex are they?**

* I have a 3 year old brindle boxer female named Clementine.

**Do you have children or are you planning on having children? Do you often have children as visitors, such as nieces, nephews, cousins, or friends' children?**

* Not in this life.

**Do you rent or will you be renting in the future? If so, what breed or weight restrictions are on your lease? What type of building do you rent (condo, apartment, high-rise apartment, townhome, single-family home, etc)? **

* I rent. No giant breeds, essentially. I rent an apartment, but again, spend 3-4 hours a day outside, walking, hiking, at the park, training,
