Mr. Brooks was driving drunk and was passed out in his car in the middle of a drive-thru lane. This in itself makes him a criminal guilty of what I would describe as attempted murder, being someone who has lost multiple loved ones to drunk drivers.
Once he failed his field sobriety test and then miserably failed a breathalyzer he resisted arrest, assaulted the officers, ripped a taser out of an officer’s hand, and attempted to use it on the officers at point-blank range. You can be seriously injured or killed by a taser so the claims that the taser is not lethal are lies. Mr. Brooks was a criminal on more than one count and lethal force was used by the officers justifiably. I wish that Mr. Brooks had survived his gun shots as they tried to save him but he died due to his own actions.
These officers were doing their jobs and they deserved to go home safely without a drunk threatening their lives. Removing drunk drivers from the roads has saved countless lives and arguably many of yo... keep reading on reddit ➡
I (F23) started working at my current job right out of college in September. When I started working there I probably weighed around 135 pounds (I'm 5'3"). So I was healthy but a little bit on the bigger side.
Since then, I've lost about 30 pounds. The thing is that I didn't really intend to lose weight or work towards it, my lifestyle just changed a lot. In college I was a swimmer but after I started working I started running instead. I also lost my taste for a lot of sweet and processed foods, and I started working out more too. I really didn't try to lose any weight, it just happened.
This week was my first week back in the office. One of my colleagues (F30s) is on the larger side. She's been working with me since I started.
Today I was getting a snack from the break room and she came up to me and we started chatting.
A little in our conversation she expressed that she admired my weight loss and asked me how I had lost so much in only a couple of months. I told her basically what... keep reading on reddit ➡
Have been having a horrible streak trading and decided to go all yesterday, on some deep OTM TSLA puts expiring today. I believed that speculative investors would be seeing to withdraw from TSLA in the present market environment, esp. given that it didn't decline as much as the market did yesterday.
Tesla went up 1% with the whole market also up, and my losses were accelerating. At that point, I believed that my deep OTM puts had no chance of paying off and decided to take whatever I could get. Portfolio vaporized.
About 30 minutes later, Tesla became the worst performing NASDAQ stock today. It is now the second worst performing stock, and if I had held on, my FDs would have been worth 190k in the green; instead of 46k in the red.
I blew $7867 a minute.
I'm so upset.
I don't know what to do.
I still have money in the bank and will be financially okay but this really hurts.
I need some support. Please help.
(I haven't been on this sub before so idk if it's discussed here more often or if it even happens to everyone but I have basically never heard of people talk about this aspect of depression) Seriously, before I had depression I didn't have the slightest idea that it would effect your memory and every time I mention my fucked up memory people are always suprised. I can't think of any good reason why this is compleatly ignored when people discuss about this because it has had a huge effect on my life. I can't explain how awful it is when someone talks about stuff i've said or done and I can't properly remember it myself.
Edit: everyone probably doesn't have this and it's not an offical symptom of depression but it definitely is a side effect. Like some people have said it all just blurs together. I think it has something to do with how you don't really enjoy the stuff you do so you just go on and do things without thinking or registering them. I mean I can't remember most of my childhoo... keep reading on reddit ➡
Since Williams is public, if you can read financial statements you can figure out what went on:
Annual Report 2019, p49 - literally the last footnote:
The Group has terminated all agreements with ROKiT. At the balance sheet date [BenjyBunny 31 Dec 2019] an amount of $1m was owed by ROKiT and carried within trade debtors relating to the 2019 season. There is an additional £9m within both trade debtors and deferred income at 31 December 2019 relating to ROKiT sponsorship of the 2020 season.
With only $1M outstanding in 2019 this means ROKiT actually mostly paid their sponsorship for 2019.
I will ignore the 2020 amount for now as that is probably pre-invoicing for 2020 services and an accounting recognition of a contracted value in deferred income.
But these accounts allow us to answer 3 more questions:

Absolutely monster job report beat. Stock futures move higher.
>"The Covid-19 recession is over,” says Zandi, on ADP. He sees job growth returning in June and U-3 falling to around the financial crisis high of 10%, where it will stay absent aggressive fiscal response.
Edit: I see the usual amount of pedantic counter arguements in the comments.
You understand that by dream we are talking about something you've wanted to do for years and something that will bring passion and completion to your life.
No, Expecting your wife to support your random, sudden "dream" to open a bakery because you've been watching Buddy on TLC for the last few weeks and think it looks fun is not a counter arguement to my tip. Do You really not understand how that's not the same thing?
Personal Example: I wanted to go teach English abroad and my girlfriend was a bit fearful for our relationship going long distance. It had been my dream for years and she supported it. She saw how happy it made me, how much it completed me, how much new confidence I gained. It could have been a disaster but it was my dice to roll, we're both really glad I did, because it made me a lot happier.
I'm a Data Scientist, League player and writer for TowardsDataScience. I often combine these to research and publish articles about LoL and I thought Reddit might appreciate my latest, which is all about tilt!
The full article & link to the code can be found here:
I was interested in seeing whether I could prove the existence of tilt (I went on a 13 game losing streak, this was a coping mechanism). The first step was to see whether players who have lost, are more likely to lose their next game:
But, this is obvious when you think about it. Players that have recently lost 2 games are statis... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'll try to quote some relevant sections from the NYT article:
> “I hate to say it, but this is going to take longer and look grimmer than we thought,” Nicholas Bloom, an economist at Stanford University, said of the path to recovery. Mr. Bloom, a co-author of an analysis of the coronavirus epidemic’s effects on the labor market, estimates that 42 percent of recent layoffs will result in permanent job loss.

I don't really know why I'm writing this here, maybe catharsis, or maybe so someone can hear the story of myself and my friend and take some joy in the people they still have in their life. I fully expect this wall of text ramble to get lost in the shuffle of more interesting shit but here goes. I had a friend, we'll call him S, who I met years ago through a random Reddit post. We started by playing Magic the Gathering and that quickly evolved into playing online games together as well. Over the years, we played so many games together, almost every night of the week, that the question of if one or the other would be on in a given night shifted mostly to when. S was the first (and I suspect last) friend I had who would stay up all night playing a game and then want to do the same thing every night of the week until we were sick of a game. No other friend I've ever had was so willing to blow off real life in order to hang out.
For years this relationship grew. We'd take extended br... keep reading on reddit ➡
I was a fundamentalist, southern-baptist Christian. Fully believed every word in the Bible, and it was my source of hope and my purpose in life. You can imagine what happened when I lost my faith at 19.
Nietzsche talked about the removal of religion and the harm it can do, stating its not the absence of religion that leads people to despair, it’s the withdrawal of it. Losing my faith flipped my worldview on its head. I was completely lost and had no idea where to turn. Everything my life was based on was swept out from under me.
It took a toll on me; I fell into depression and battled it throughout my freshman year of college. Soon after, though, I found philosophy. The first branch I heard of was stoicism. Desperate for something, I was recommended “meditations”, and I picked it up right away.
Oh, man. The first two chapters blew me away. I remember tears of joy from the words I was reading. In a world where previously I was taught that I’m “worthless” and “nothing” without god, Ma... keep reading on reddit ➡
I’ve lost ~100lbs after being obese for my entire life and am in maintenance now, but there are still little things that surprise me. I never knew that your armpits were supposed to be actual pits! Shaving is so much harder now because they’re actually concave instead of flat. And I’m amazed by how much easier it is just to do normal daily tasks now. I never realized how much effort it took to just get through the day 100lbs ago.
I never had much of a weight problem until I started infertility treatments. Sure, I had 5-10 vanity pounds I would have liked to lose, but over all I was a healthy weight.
In 2016 my husband and I were starting year 5 of trying to start a family. We finally decided to see a fertility doctor. Over the course of the next 2 years, we had multiple failed fertility treatments. All the high powered, hormone filled drugs led me to gain about 50 pounds.
In 2018 we took a break from all the fertility stuff and focused on ourselves. I lost 40 pounds that year and felt great. I was running faster, and felt stronger and healthier than ever.
In 2019 I finally got pregnant, 3 times, and miscarried every one. With each miscarriage I gained more weight. I was eating everything in sight, just trying to handle my emotions. I gained back all the weight and more.
I'm finally back to a good place emotionally. So I'm ready to start my weight loss journey again. I have 52 pounds to lose and today wa... keep reading on reddit ➡
Ok lads so here is a bit of a harsh truth. Keto works as a weight loss aid largely because it helps deal with hunger and energy while removing the quick dopamine hit that drug-like edible things cause. Of course there are other benefits regarding inflammation, auto-immune diseases and so forth but I'm going to stick with weight loss here.
There are many foods that are low in carbs that trigger binge eating in people who are prone to binge eating. Keto cheesecake is great but not if you cannot stop eating it once you start. While it may not cause the same blood sugar roller coaster that a sugar-laden dessert would, eating 2000 calories of cream cheese on top of the rest of your food that day is one reason many people stall.
Ask yourself this: When I eat a thing, am I more hungry or less hungry after eating it? If you are more hungry or the same level of hungry, consider removing it from your diet.
For me, the triggers are sweet things and roasted salted nuts. I can easily eat... keep reading on reddit ➡
This study surfaced on /r/science: https://www.reddit.com/r/science/comments/gyb96a/study_autistic_burnout_is_a_syndrome/
I'm crossposting it here, because the mechanism described ("resulting from chronic life stress and a mismatch of expectations and abilities without adequate supports. It is characterized by pervasive, long-term (typically 3+ months) exhaustion, loss of function, and reduced tolerance to stimulus") seems very relevant for ADHD-induced burnout/depression as well.
At the same time I'd like to point out this passage from the top comment (from supposedly a psychiatrist): "Burnout doesn’t just happen with autism, although autistic burnout has specific symptoms that differentiate it from other types of burnout, which will tend to have their own other specific symptoms. Burnout can happen with any chronic condition that impacts a person’s function and life satisfaction. In mental health, we see burnout with autism, ADHD, depression, anxiety, OCD, most every chronic condi... keep reading on reddit ➡
I wanted to share my journey. Not sure how to upload photos although I have tons!
It's been nearly 2 years now since I started my weight loss journey. I have been chunky since a child and told myself I can't get to 300. I made it to 264 and decided this is it, I'm done with this.
Started working out 4 days a week, cut out soda and all processed foods, candy, meaning I would buy raw not messed with meat from the store and cook it myself at home with a nice portion of veggies. I would eat what I knew I needed and not what I Wanted to eat. It was completely hard but I found a treadmill for cheap online, bought it and started walking on that to build up my strength. I am now working out 4-5 days a week doing Pilates. Blogilates (Cassey Ho) is the channel I credit a lot of my weight loss too. I also do workouts from Madfit (Maddie Lymburner).
I'm now in a size small most of the time, and I just want to share my weight loss journey and advice/experience with anyone else. Love everyone st... keep reading on reddit ➡
I saw a post that has since been removed about the most heartbreaking losses in Super Bowl History. I decided to make a formula that tried to show the heartbreak of each Super Bowl loss and also how the heartbreak could still sting today. I decided that heartbreak would be affected by 6 criteria which would contribute to an overall heartbreak score.
- 4th Quarter Lead (+ 15 to Heartbreak Score)- I wanted to make this a big part of heartbreak. There is nothing worse than being so close to winning the Lombardi only to lose it in the final minutes
- Largest Lead (+1 for each point of their biggest lead to the Heartbreak Score)- Losing a Super Bowl hurts. What hurts even worse? Having a large lead only to see it dwindle away. So for example if a team had a lead as large as 10 they will have 10 points added to the Heartbreak-O-Meter
- Team Favored (+/-1 for each point favored by)- It hurts to lose when you expect to win. If a team is favored by 7 you will have a score of 7 added to yo... keep reading on reddit ➡
As long as someone is mobile and isn’t hindered athletically by their weight and has no cardiovascular issues due to weight, I don’t care how big or how small someone is. I am attracted to women of all shapes, sizes and ethnicities. Just about the only things I find universally attractive are smooth skin and full lips.
However, people on Twitter think I have terrible fatphobic opinions because I think Adele looks amazing after losing weight and I thought it was great that she did. Is there fatphobia in society? Of course (and by that I mean people who make fun of fat people because they think they’re ugly or lazy and have no real interest in their health but just want to shame them). But I think the whole idea that praising weight loss is fatphobic is unfair because let’s keep it real, your weight is always somewhat under your control. Even many of the super obese people with thyroid problems on “My 600lb Life” lose the weight. Being fat or skinny or in-between isn’t an ethnicity, it... keep reading on reddit ➡
Hope it’s okay to post here. I found an article on her recent weight loss. If you check her Instagram she posted an updated birthday photo. It was so sad to see all the comments that she couldn’t have lost that much without surgery etc.
When we all know this way of eating and similar ways of eating really work. I see posts every day in this thread and others of people losing 100+ pounds.
Also so many body positive people seem upset now and that she shouldn’t be “praised for being thin and beautiful” this just hurts to see those kind of comments. Yes beauty comes in all shapes and sizes but dang lose some weight and get healthy and piss everyone off. Let her life and be healthy and have confidence. It’s crazy what getting in shape does to other people’s egos. People were also saying how they’re sad because Adele isn’t “relatable” anymore. 😳
What are your thoughts. Have people said crazy things to you after losing the weight?
Let's be honest here. Getting one shot by assassins, or constantly roamed on or ganked by mid/jg/top has always been part of the ADC experience, but most ADC players can accept this as part of the role.
What's most frustrating is when you get to 6 items as an ADC there's no guarantee that it actually make a difference in the overall game state. Of course, your damage has increase but at the end of the game you are just an extremely squishy and mediorce sustained DPS threat. Late game for ADC has been lost, the game has accelerated so much with the addition of dragon souls and baron minion buffs that getting to late game is difficult and the payoff of getting to late game is small. Riot has given so many late game tools for other champions that ADC as the preminent late game CARRY doesn't exist anymore, and despite promises to increase early game power those option have never came.
