I live in a household with other people in an area that is now designated a Tier 2. My girlfriend who I have been dating for a year also lives in a flat share with other people. Her town is still Tier 1. Am I allowed to see her? I tried to decipher the government advice but it seems conflicting.

The government advice states โ€œYou do not need to socially distance from anyone in your household, meaning the people you live with. You also do not need to socially distance from anyone in your legally-permitted support bubble if you are in one, or someone youโ€™re in an established relationship with. If in the early stages of a relationship, you should take particular care to follow the guidance on social distancing.โ€ (https://www.gov.uk/government/publications/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing/coronavirus-covid-19-meeting-with-others-safely-social-distancing).

i work at tarbucks in case that's not obvious. i wanted 2 share a story with all of you. plz be nice and feel free to respond with one of YOUR guest pandemic horror stories.

so as we are all pleasantly aware, there is a GLOBAL PANDEMIC. such a situation requires a mask ordinance and guests must wear a face covering while shopping. due to this ordinance, starbucks has had to inform guests that we are takeout only and to return at the end of their shopping to get drinks and food.

the "takeout only" convo typically happens like this (since apparently some people do not read the 4 signs about it that we have posted before you even get to the counter) (B means barista and G means guest):

B: hi! are you planning on shopping in our store today?

G: yeah!

B: due to the mask ordinance we are takeout only and we ask that you return at the end of your target run to place your order!

The Short-eared owl

The Short-eared Owl,Asio flammeus, meaning flame-coloured owl, also known as the Strigid owl, is a medium sized owl found on the moors and fells of the British isles.

It is a day flying owl, a little bit bigger than a Barn owl, with longer wings and a blunter face, itโ€™s plumage is a speckled light tan with a light coloured front to disguise it against the sky when it hunts, in a similar way to how a fighter plane is camouflaged on its top and light coloured underneath.

The most striking feature of the short-eared owl, and the one which sets it apart from other owls like the barn owl is itโ€™s huge, golden coloured eyes, shadowed with black like kohl eyeshadow to prevent light-glare and forward facing, which gives it a fierce and fiery looking stare, hence itโ€™s Latin name: flammeus.

My SO (M, 50) has been unemployed for a year and a half, roughly, between both jobs. He lost the first through his own idiocy, and we've done our best to accept that. He lost the second, which he got a few months after losing the first, through someone else's incompetence. It was a harder pill to swallow for both of us.

Fortunately, an opportunity finally opened about an hour away from our home. SO was hired for a supervisory position, and began training. For a while, it seemed like he was really enjoying the new company, and would thrive there.

Unfortunately, this new place is very new; there are many administrative things still left to be done, and the things that are completed seem hastily done. For example, his completed drug test was lost, assessments he had completed have been misplaced or misfiled, and

The plane theyโ€™d arrived on stood as an imposing edifice behind them, and Jason found himself edging towards the shade it provided. Wherever they were, it was fucking hot. Humid too, given that even once he arrived, the shade offered little reprieve from the clammy heat.

Of course, he didnโ€™t get to enjoy even that small reprieve for long, as an intimidating figure in an all-too-familiar costume made himself known from amongst the crowd of milling recruits.

Taking advantage of his weakened state the Sun stabbed directly through his eyelids to the comfortable darkness beyond, ruining any chances Korin had of remaining asleep. Desperately scrunching his face to hold on to the remaining scraps of quickly receding rest the airman flailed his arms in search for the missing blankets.

Quitting without AA

Can you recover without AA or similar support? That question is starting to come between my brother and me.

I have needed to quit drinking for several years, felt it in my bones that I was bloody well going to quit right after last Christmas, and after several tries I am on Day 25.

My older brother has been sober for 8 years. He hit a very hard rock bottom and has recovered to such an extent that he is an inspiration. We talk often and itโ€™s been very helpful but he is consistent in his encouragement that I should go to AA meetings, which remain key to his own recovery. We had not spoken for several days before we caught up by phone last night and there was some judgement in his tone when we talked about the fact that I have still not gone to an AA meeting (at least one of the online versions).

I am not a joiner and I am a stubborn SOB, and I want to do this alone - and with the support of this online community, because you folks are awesome and amazing.

Apparently, the Lewistons had called the sheriff for Eric โ€œthreatened us with a firearm and shot at us!โ€ the security cameras Eric had around his house showed otherwise.

OK, some random thoughts and a list of whiskies I've had so far (any feedback is highly appreciated!) So here is my whisk(e)y journey

Hey guys, the following text might be a bit long, so be prepared. I'm kind of a long time lurker first time poster, so bare with me. Also I've just started havin' a few drinks, so who knows how structured this little essay will be. Anyway, here we go:

I never liked whisky. Blame it on Johnny Walked Red or whatever you want I just didn't. I wanted to, but I don't think I ever tasted anything I liked. However I don't think I tried really hard.

And then at the end of last year I started to watch Peaky Blinders. I got hooked so much and they drink whiskey on the show so often that I decided to give whiskey one more shot (sorry about the pun). I even took the missus to a horse racing event on New Year's Eve but that's another story.

Long story short, I ended up buying a bottle of Jameson. I was surprised how smooth and drinkable it was, so my journey began and I never looked back.

Let me share my brief list of the drams I tried for the last few months. Mind you I'm usually on

I read everything Cormac McCarthy has written over this summer - here are some thoughts!

So, some necessary context for this: I'm in a Literary Studies PhD program, and last week I took my comprehensive exams. While I won't know for a few days longer whether I passed or not (crossing every finger over here), one thing I already know is that I'll likely never go through a period of such intense reading in my life as I did this summer. It was both exhausting and rewarding, and that kind of reading experience is worth an entirely separate thread in its own right.

Anyway, one of my three reading lists was focused exclusively on Cormac McCarthy. I had previously read four of his novels, but over the course of the summer I read everything he's written - and I mean everything. All ten novels, the four dramatic works, the handful of early short stories that are still readily available, the tiny handful of public intellectual pieces he's done in the past few years with the Santa Fe Institute (this last category is really just one essay, but it counts!). They were all accompanied

About the WSJ college rankings...

I know that what I am about to say may ruffle some feathers but I think the WSJ ranking list might have a point on something... Or, at least I think I sort of find out why they made the list that way... Please smack some sense into me if you disagree or just ignore me...

INTRO...

Anyway, I got bored in this semi-lockdown so I did some mindless digging... If you look closely at the metrics the WSJ used this year: resources (30%), engagement (20%), outcomes (40%), environment (10%), UCSB is particularly poor at two things โ€” "resources" and "engagement," both ranked at 250+.

Resources Ranking at 398... WTH!?

So, what does that set of criteria mean? Specifically, in "re

"CVs have infinite planes": Myths and facts, a discussion

In the endless debates on this sub over CVs, and their impact on the game, one argument and point of contention continues to resurface over and over.

Inevitably, someone on the anti-CV side will grouse about how CVs have infinite planes, and a pro-CV defender will pipe up and insist that they do not. This post seeks to put the issue to rest once and for all.

So, do CVs have infinite planes or not? Which side is right? Well, they're both right, in a sense.

&nbsp;

When they say that CVs do not have infinite planes, the pro-CV side is technically correct (which, as we know, is usually the best kind of correct ).

Their argument is simple and straight-forward, and has been made many times. A CV starts with a set number of planes of each type on the deck and ready to go. As losses mount, the CV starts generating additional planes at a fixed rate per squadron. Given that a match is also finite in length, a CV can only generate so

With little else on his plate, Russell Winters took his time walking through the corridors and facilities of the Event Horizon. More than a few curious civilians who werenโ€™t aware of his identity nodded or waved his way, surprised to see a new face after so long aboard. He returned the greetings briefly but carried on towards the rear of the ship, his confident stride impressing

OBLIGATORY FILLER MATERIAL โ€“ ESCAPE FROM STALAG SULTANATE, Part 1

That reminds me of a story.

โ€œHELLFIRE AND DALMATIANS!โ€ I shouted to no one in particular.

โ€œWhatโ€™s the problem, dear?โ€ Esme asks in that way she has of telling me to calm down without having to say it directly.

โ€œThis bloody fucking country. A day late and several dollars short.โ€ I fume. โ€œCanโ€™t get a new liquor license because of the bloody COVID. Canโ€™t go to a hotel bar and have a snort because of the bloody COVID. Canโ€™t even slip across the border to Dubai and soak up some room service and buckets of complimentary cocktails because of the bloody COVID.โ€

Yes, the Sultanate of Oman, in its infinitesimal wisdom, has traditionally followed other GCC countries by at least three months in making any sort of proclamations regarding this latest bugaboo: the hideous, deadly, itchy, loathsome, and possibly serially bent, noxious, pandemical COVID-19; aka, this pandemicโ€™s entry for flu.

Their response is one of immense knee-jerk without first having thought of the consequences.
