As a wilderness guide one of the biggest mistakes I see people make when dressing for harsh winter conditions is bringing improperly fitted boots and gloves. Hampering circulation to your extremities is surprisingly easy to do, and becomes more apparent in the cold. Boots tied to tightly or tightly fitting gloves hamper your circulation and prevent your warmed blood from getting to your fingers and toes. It doesn’t matter what a pair of gloves/boots are rated for if there is no heat from circulation to contain (clothes do not warm you, they trap your natural body heat). Loosen your boots much more than you would in summer months and ensure your gloves don’t fit too tightly around the wrist.
If you find your feet cold loosen your boots. If your fingers start going numb, remove your gloves, shake your hands, and pocket them for a few minutes (never blow on your hands).
Greetings from the midwest.
When I go for walks in the winter, even with gloves, my hands get COLD. I mean like painfully cold. Is this a bloodflow thing? When I come home and take my gloves off, my fingers are very uncomfortable as they accumulate to room temperature. It's like they hurt worse than when I was outside.
Disclaimer: Not an economist. But, I've done some research on the current financial environment of the US dollar and the economy, and we are definitely in uncharted territory. Over 20% of all USD was printed last year, and a lot of it went to buying stocks through quantitative easement.
In this post I break down investment vehicles into 4 main groups.
My understanding of what is currently happening:
I'm under the impression that the price of equity has been rising because of both inflation and the fact that the FED is buying it up. The demand is artificial and can't last forever. So, shouldn't stocks be overvalued even after taking inflation into account? Shouldn't we expect a big dip when things start opening back up and people want to use their cash for something that isn't overvalued?
Enter Bitcoin. I would like to know people's thoughts on my understanding of Bitcoin. I am not an expert. It is similar to the USD in that it has no intrinsic value. The main difference is that no government can just decide to print more of it. What is the actual value of 1 bitcoin? Unlike gold or real estate, it doesn't really have a true value. It can be mined, so if price sky-rockets to $1 billion then the number of miners will increase which helps sta... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hey everyone, my girlfriend and I are into backpacking. The only problem is she has terrible circulation to her feet and hands and they get super cold very quickly. Any recommendations for gloves, socks, or other strategies on how to combat this? Normal mittens and wool socks just don't do work for her like they do for me. Thanks!
I recently discovered Nano, I read something about it but I still have a question: the maximum amount of Nano it's already in circulation, isn't this a problem for new people that want to buy some? I come from Bitcoin, where new coins are mined every 10 minutes, and I found it strange.
Who own the majority of Nano? How was the initial distribution done?
My wife and I are reasonably experienced trekkers and hikers and we're starting to expand into what you might call light mountaineering --- getting more experience with cold, snow, and ice. As part of that, we've been doing some non-technical winter climbs up to around 13k feet. We have similar gear, but as often as not, my wife will end up getting quite cold fingers, toes, and sometimes legs. One recent trip snowshoeing in temperatures near zero F, I was feeling comfortable the whole day but she ended up with a lot of pain in her toes as she warmed up in the car ride home.
For reference, she was wearing Nepals, wool socks, a thin kind of synthetic stocking with feet, a thicker synthetic long underwear, and some basic hiking pants. A similar base layer on top, fleece, and a down layer. She has a thinner pair of gloves and waterproof mittens, a wool hat, and a medium weight synthetic neck gaiter.
Any suggestions for helping keep her warm or improving her capacity for cold weather would be very much appreciated.
Hey, everyone. Here's my not-very-low-effort OC nako edit, hope you'll like it!
I've already posted it on the weekly discussion thread but I think it should be okay to make a proper post too. Feel free to remove my post if this is breaking any rules.

Sorry is this is a dumb question. But burned/coming from XRP, where a certain amount of XRP is released from escrow and sold by Ripple each month, thus them sitting on a humongous pile of cash if the price goes up. I always found this quite dodgy.
I wanted to know if this is the same with case with Cardano? I understand that for proof of stake, the tokens must be pre-allocated, but to me it is quite dodgy if ONE company is sitting on all the coins, promoting and selling them.
