I am a general practitioner MD in the US. I am managing exponentially more fear-based questions and requests than actual Covid-associated healthcare (thankfully!). People are just looking for some semblance of control in a situation that is nearly impossible to control. Stick with what you know about prevention (the one thing we have SOME control over), including social distancing, frequent handwashing, and avoiding touching your nose/mouth/eyes. But for many, that is not enough . People are genuinely scared for their lives. There is general agreement in the Psychological and general medical community that news and media can become a negative for the psyche. Take a breath, and take a break!
I hate seeing this everywhere. So called snitching being talked about like it's morally wrong when in reality its the only way to get justice and keep people safe. People covering up for murders, corruption, abuse etc, its disgusting, yet claiming the police and authorities are slow to act when you want them to help you. Smh.
Edit: apparently you all need clarification, by communities i mean groups, be they socioeconomic communities, political parties, police etc. This is not targeted at one specific group.
Some US states and localities have similar exercise exceptions or wording that can be construed as such. When the national order inevitably comes, what are the chances of such an exception?
Hullo, I'm Olle, I'm a biologist/ecologist/entomologist and science communicator, currently working at the Department of Zoology, Stockholm University, Sweden. Last week I defended my PhD thesis, which you can find here, including a .pdf link to the thesis summary.
Briefly, my work for the past five years has focused on the ways in which insects tune their life cycles to the local climate, and the genetic mechanisms that make such adaptation possible. We've been using the speckled wood butterfly as a model system, a widespread species that varies in its life cycle across Europe. In places with long warm seasons it produces several generations per year; where the season is short, it only produces one generation per year. Many insects show this kind of variation, and when they're economically important (like pest insects), it can make a big difference! Results from our lab have connected the variation in... keep reading on reddit ➡
This cycle always repeats itself ever since the launch of D1, moments like this are inevitable at this point, and I don’t think that’ll ever change.
Edit: Let me add this, I’m still currently playing actively and enjoying it, I just wanted to let people know
This is an update from this post https://www.reddit.com/r/relationships/comments/7esgqg/me_32_f_dont_know_how_to_interact_with_sister_28f/
I hope this might find others who are in similar situations, as I've found support for the family/friends of people in unhealthy/abusive relationships to be lacking. It really is this worried feeling that I can never quite shake. I can respect that she has been victimized in some ways and have compassion for her, but I also think that the bystanders to relationships like this are subject to a large emotional toll. I worry about whether I will get a phone call that she is dead or in jail for harming him, and also miss my sister. It sucks. It's not about me, but it affects me.

So it’s no question that Sanders locks up the majority youth vote, but I’m looking for a nuanced discussion on youth voter turnout during this primary season, as well as some other questions at the end if you all are interested.
We’re four states in now, and while we still have a long way to go, I really don’t see the mass youth vote turning out, primarily ages 18-29. In fact, numbers seem to be down almost across the board.
Some statistics and sources:
I had a tough time finding overall percentages or numbers, but it looks like Iowa saw 11,640 more youth votes than 2016, however it was down by 10,300 from 2008 overall. Source
The youth vote appears to be down 19% from 2016. Source
Down 2% from 2016, from 18% to 16%. [Source](https://www.inquisitr.com/5886775/new-hampsh... keep reading on reddit ➡
I don't understand it at all, New is full of cycle complaints, ranging from hog somehow being "OP" so it's a "Good thing" it's not available, to "it's too hard." Cycle decks are fine, maybe you're just not good? God forbid a challenge forces you out of your comfort zone a bit. Cycle decks are very difficult to use in normal triple elixir challenges, and as such, a lot of people switch to beatdown, essentially forcing us out of our comfort zone, so why is it suddenly bad when the same happens to beatdown and bridgespam users?
Forcing you out of your comfort zone is a good thing, it allows you to be more versatile of a player, which is GOOD because in modes like war, your options are limited. Furthermore this helps you learn more card interactions, like how to properly use cheaper cards. I also find it pretty ironic how the general consensus here is that cycle is "no skill" meanwhile everyone's crying about this challenge is apparently too hard.
If cycle was so easy then it sho... keep reading on reddit ➡
I've done some brief reading on the topic, and it appears that bats and great apes (and humans) are the main branches of mammal species that have short-term ovulation cycles rather than just a few fertile seasons per year.
In our evolutionary history, at what point did this become common?
As a follow up question, do we have any evidence of a rapid population growth due to increased year-round fertility of a hominid or precursor species?
Let’s get those horror stories in here. Sometimes things go horribly wrong or we didn’t plan for something. Tell us your experience with your worst cycle to help others learn from your mistakes.
For those unaware, each week we have a specific steroid or PED up for discussion. This week we are discussing Your worst cycle. The goal of these threads is to generate discussion about the posted compound/cycle and get a wide variety of user experiences and feedback about it. These threads are extremely useful as an archive for new users, and for experienced users researching a new compound. This is all anecdotal, of course, and you should take these reviews with a grain of salt.
Stuff to discuss could include:
If any of you follow Derek at More Plates More Dates you may have seen his latest video chronicle of various pieces of evidence that indicate the Golden Era physiques like Arnold were built with a Primobolan base and daily Dbol tabs.
This set off a lightbulb for me about how this probably does work well for building the type of physiques those men were known for. Below is how I’d imagine this works in a synergistic fashion without need for AI’s since those drugs were allegedly not available back then. —————————————————————-
No testosterone base: self explanatory. Testosterone was not yet in widespread use at the time
Primo: maintain stable base androgen levels with limited sides, no aromatization and some purported anti estrogen effects. Think of this as their “test base” but without any conversion to estrogen.
Dianabol: primary anabolic component of the cycle that could be titrat... keep reading on reddit ➡
I swear, whenever I search online for this subject, I see 60% of the people saying 'oh i got pregnant in the first month'
Is it really THAT common!? it makes me feel very frustrated and jealous.
EDIT: Pearson UV has officially canceled MCAT exams from now until April 16th. They did indicate that there is a possibility of extending how long they are canceling exams. STAY WOKE my people!
Before I begin, I'm just going to say that these are just my thoughts.... here I go...
Being that the effing world is in a literal PANDEMIC, I think it would be best to (1) Cancel March and April MCAT exams and (2) Push the application cycle by, perhaps, a month or 2. With everything going on, especially along the coasts, people are being FORCED into uncomfortable situations. Whether that be not being able to work, not having a QUIET place to study, etc. I think we, as a collective, are going through it. And the effed up thing about all of this is that somehow we are supposed to remain calm and have the motivation to stu... keep reading on reddit ➡
it’s great let me tell you
Not trying to jump on the "fuck AIs" bandwagon, but ever since my first cycle I could tell that they generally messed with me. Even low doses made me feel off and slashed my libido significantly.
Doing my first " No AI" blast now, about 3 weeks in. Pinning daily for a total of 200mg TestCyp and 400mg Masteron weekly.
I have to say, I'm feeling the best I have in a long time. Great mood, great energy, sex drive is coming back. Leaning out and making decent gains. Gyno seems to be controlled, but take tamoxifen on HCG days. I'm lucky to have no problems with hair loss and I'm taking 10mg Accutane daily to control acne.
So I know this is a trendy subject at the moment, but wanted to hear some more stories of how AI's effect people and their successful "no-AI" cycles.
You have 2 options
understanding: the fallacy of the process, the bias of our brain which is not trustworthy, and the fact that urge is generated by an amount of dopamine, which if you give in, it will gradually increase, fueling the cycle, that being said, consequently decide to cut all the stimuli and let dopamine slow down slowly and naturally however painful and harsh it could be, but it will.. urge will fade away if you give it the right amount of time with starvation
relapse, give up, letting dopamine gives you the belief that you are doing good and you need it, actually believe in it, orgasming and letting prolactin clean biochemically your dopamine levels, (without any effort) be a zombie, and embrace all the bad side we all know, getting depressed, regretting your decision .. and so on, then start over, just because you can’t handle your dopamine fluctuations
It’s up to you
Hello all! I hope you're all staying safe and healthy during this time of national crisis! I know that I love having the Peloton Cycle there for me each day for me to spend some "me time" and do something healthy for myself.
Tomorrow (Tues, 3/24) I'll be celebrating 10 consecutive days and also my 150th ride! Anyone care to celebrate with me on a live ride? I'm going to do the 7:35am (PDT) Tabata ride with instructor Tunde.
My Peloton user name is Swington.
I swear it’s like I look forward to playing civ with a specific civilization and get into a game and get a pretty bad start. No biggie, restart and have a better start but this time I get absolutely destroyed by barbarians and am set back the rest of the game. Okay...restart, get declared war on by a militaristic neighbor and loose my city. Alright....restart again and then spawn in the tundra. I then give up and don’t feel like playing civ anymore. Maybe I’m being picky but I swear I have this cycle every once and awhile...
Last week we scared the noobies shitless, so this week lets hope this thread doesnt help them make poor decisions. Whether it be a recomp, cut, or bulk, lets hear about your BEST cycle, not necessarily your favorite. What cycle gave you the absolute most gains or best look youve had?

First I would like to thank this community for providing such an easy resource of reliable and scientific knowledge which formed the entire foundation of my first cycle.
Age : 22 (Research shows this is still too young to ensure minimal damage to the body. Research also shows some people will do a basic cycle at 30 and fuck themselves forever. DYOR. Take your own risks based on your own risk profile.)
Natty lifting experience : 4 Years
Height : 5'7
Cycle : 20 weeks Test E 500mg/w pinning 250mg E3.5d Note I recommend a cycle of 15 weeks, I only extended to 20 for personal reasons (incoming holiday with GF, fears of ED on PCT).
AI : Aromasin 12.5mg EOD
PCT : Starting in a few days (2 weeks after last pin) 50mg clomid ED for 2 weeks then 25mg ED 2-3 weeks
Bloods : I did a baseline pre cycle to check my natural levels and make sure everything was OK. I did a 2nd test 6 weeks in to check levels and estrogen. Doing another test after PCT to see how my test levels recovered.... keep reading on reddit ➡
