I have a B.S. in biology so I'm not looking for an explanation of how invasive species. I'm looking for more information on this particular invasive species and how it might impact an already threatened honey bee population.
Hey everyone, I wanted to explain why I left unexpectedly. I left because of some issues I had with the community, my friends, and also because I didn’t like the current state of Freddit. I had heard so many things about old Freddit, and how everyone was much closer together. This ultimately left me longing for it and also dissatisfied with the current state of Freddit, although I know that can’t be changed much. This is the fate of all communities.
I made the decision to delete my accounts without intending to come back. I probably should have written a goodbye note but whatever on that.
Had some time to think while I was at work and I saw all the comments on the post last night about me leaving. I was not expecting that many people to be concerned about me. Also realized that this place has been my home for 15 months and abandoning it wouldn’t be right. All I could think about was Freddit.
With that said I’m coming back, and won’t let those negative things get in the way, and will... keep reading on reddit ➡
Because of lots of reasons, I haven't told my kids why we went NC with Team Fockit (my "parents"). My daughter was too young to need an explanation (she was just over 1yo), and my son (who was 3.5yo) was content with the explanation that Team Fockit had been naughty and were in time-out. Since then, they got supervised visitation (no, I can't move) once a month, in a visitation room. My kids seem mostly neutral about these visits, but every once in a while, my son does remember all of the toys that are at TF's house, and asks why he's not allowed to go back there instead of meeting TF in the visitation room (he only ever asks about the toys). I've always avoided giving him a completely honest response, following the advice of both our therapist and our lawyer, who both believe that it would be bad for my son and for our case to explain to him that TF not only abused and neglected me growing up, but also abused me as an adult, and started the same pattern with him and his sister. Not to... keep reading on reddit ➡
I have never in my life been pregnant. I got my tubes tied in my mid 30’s, as I did not want to ever have children (mainly medical reasons). Fast forward a couple years later and I have gotten my first ever pregnancy (at 40). It was ectopic and I had to have it operated on immediately to remove it... just last week.
It amazes me as I have never been pregnant in my entire life, to only get pregnant AFTER a tubal ligation. Then I find out it’s quite common. I found out the more permanent method of sterilization is a bilateral salpingectomy. I had them remove my tubes during the ectopic pregnancy removal.
Many women believe they are getting this done and don’t know the difference:
Tubal Ligation - “getting your tubes tied” involves cutting, burning and/or closing off the tubes. However the tubes are not removed. Tubal ligation is typically the more common practice.
Salpingectomy - when the tubes are completely removed altogether. This is not as common (depending on the country
“The correlation between annual changes in real, or inflation-adjusted, gross domestic product and annual real returns for the S&P 500, including dividends, was 0.09 from 1930 to 2019, the longest period for which overlapping numbers are available” - I’d never seen this analysis but it’s amazing to see as numbers.
As someone who was hoping that 2020 would be the year of solid portfolio growth before I buy a house, it’s basically net flat for me.
The article sadly doesn’t point to whether this rally will continue, alas. Is all expectation of the recovery now baked in, and the release of Q2 results will bring a small drop followed by a relentless rise?
TL;DR: Our guild's raid leader, a blizzard customer of 15 years, was falsely banned without warning or explanation. We believe it was possibly due to other players abusing the automated report/ban system. I am making this post on his behalf because he does not have a reddit account.
Hi Reddit. I can't believe I have to make this post, but here we are. At this point our guild doesn't know where else to turn. We've seen the power of reddit in raising visibility about other bans, so we're hoping to do the same for our friend.
Our guild <Aggrophobia> on Bigglesworth - NA was formed in October by some old friends who played together since WOTLK. Under the guidance of our raid leader Cerinety, a long-time officer, we quickly assembled a stable 40 man core raid team and got all the raid content on farm. We were getting better every week and even started prepping for AQ40. However the energy in the guild quickly deflated a few weeks ago when we got some horrible news: Cerin... keep reading on reddit ➡
My personal take, I would rather fly than be on a cruise. That’s a consumer take, and there are enough people that do not believe in Covid affecting them and will still go on vacations. The latest I keep hearing is that it’s a minority disease, completely unhinged from reality.
Foxconn was one of the biggest mistakes Wisconsin’s ever made. They were going to bring in millions of dollars in business and hundreds of jobs into Wisconsin. Flying in the president and having Scott Walker cut the ribbon seemed like a promising future for Wisconsin’s economy. However, it was all downhill from there.
Before we get in depth let me tell you how I know this stuff. I’m a son of one of the first bunch of workers Foxconn hired in Milwaukee. Over the past 2 and a half years my dad has experienced all of these things. Recently they let him go along with most if not all of their team here.
Their operations were extremely rushed as the initial business and management US workers were tasked with hiring some 300+ employees within a year. This, obviously was never going to happen realistically.
Upper management in China or Taiwan wasn’t giving much attention or effort to the Wisconsin operations and didn’t seem to care. After buying out some generational farms in southeastern W... keep reading on reddit ➡

There is no need to think to produce a detailed image in your mind, we all know what cake I'm talking about, as it has mentally scarred us throughout our lives.
The shitsponge, SpongeBob's corpse, the wet caverns of hell... Over the course of its unwelcomed existence this notorious cake has gathered many names as it has journeyed across different innocent stomachs, defiling everything within.
Covering your intestinal walls with traces of this cake is like desecrating a well intact Roman temple with abstract graffiti.
This sorry excuse for pastry consists primarily of the following:
With the influx of new traders we're going to see I figured I'd explain some of the basics for you.
420 Spy C 4/17. This is a call. A call means you call bullshit on a stock and think it will crash. Use this if you think A stock is overvalued or will crash soon. 4/17 is the expiration date meaning this is how long you have to hold and make money. The closer it gets to the date the more money you can make.
420 Spy P 4/17. This is a put. Think about it as putting your money where your mouth is. If you are putting faith in a company going up you buy puts to the price you think they're going up to. The easiest way to remember this is P= Profits. Buy them when stocks are going to go up. The same expiration date information applies to puts.
DD= Don't Do it. This where users argue against what they believe is going to happen to strengthen their arguments. Anything you read in a dd should be taken as false it is strictly a thought experiment.

Our bodies are complex biological machines that are wired to learn and grow and ultimately to reproduce.
We learn through pain and pleasure, what to do and what not to do either deterring or reinforcing behavior. Back when we had to run across plains and hunt and kill prey in order to eat, food tastes delicious because it's good for our bodies and the pleasure reinforces us to do more work to get more food. No pain, no gain. The more work we do, the better we get at it. And sooner or later, when you get good enough at something, you will attract a mate.
Pain and pleasure are your personal trainers, life coaches, and teachers. And since sex is the ultimate biological goal, orgasm is the greatest natural pleasure reward. Ideally the men who have gone through the most work with the best skills would then get the pleasure from mating with several of the most attractive women around them. And other men would be pushed by their drive to increase their skills until they themselves can reach... keep reading on reddit ➡

This was the stream on May 27-28 midnight when Watame's stream was getting so many dislikes and people were asking about the reason of it.
Due to the stream still happening I said I will talk about it after the stream, but some might still missed it.
It all came from Watame's twitter, which was on May 25 when she liked a picture of her, Kaoru (latest HoloStar cross-dressing male member) and Coco, Kaoru replied but she didn't get to greet him properly until the next day, so she followed up on twitter and said hi to him.
*Above paragraph edited thanks to Zarlheinz double checking the timeline.
It was then replied by an outsider saying you should not be so close to guys if you want to get the number (followers).
Watame was a bit concerned about the post, and after talking to her manager and friends, she decided to reply to the post saying she think it's wrong to just ignore people from the same company just because of idol culture that they should stay away from all males.

I'm not very well caught up on canon, but I can think of a few "great moments" in the Inquisitors' history:
In "The Future of The Force", two of them are pretty handily beaten by Ahsoka, an unusually talented Jedi, but still!
After season one in Rebels in general, they consistently fail to beat Ezra and Kanan except through numbers, or at the very least it is pretty equal, and Kanan manages to defeat the Grand Inquisitor
Cal Kestis manages to defeat two different Inquisitors
It is worth remembering that Star Wars doesn't really do "power levels" and that power in general has a somewhat inconsistent relationship with amount of training (Luke in Return of the Jedi is an obvious example of this, but in Legends a clear one is Nomi Sunrider)--I think it is fair to say that Jedi training is more about gaining greater control over oneself than power over the Force. So there is no real reason to think a Jedi who spent a few years in training will be more powerful than one who sp... keep reading on reddit ➡
