Just came across some hindi reviewers on youtube. I was searching up for some reviews on Ant esports, cosmic byte, redgear mice. All of the videos have "review" in their title, but with no actual specs.
There was no mention about the switches being omrons, huanos or etc. No mention for sensor name unless its directly printed on the box by the manufac.
The only focus they keep having is on the "ye price ke liye na, ye bohot badhiya mouse hai", "Isme rgb hai, aur bohot acha dikhta hai" or "to dosto agar apko ye lena ho to yaha mil jayega".
I mean I understand, what can one ask if the mice are that cheap under 1.5k. But shouldn't it be generalised to atleast mention the switches, or sensor if you promote a brand. If not mentioned on the box, shouldn't it be a normal thing to contact manufacturer and mention the same in the 'review'.
At this point, I have no clue what brands have a genuinely good software for their mice or which kne of them are garbage.
I (woman of a certain age) was in Best Buy, looking at gaming mice and keyboards for about half an hour.
A young guy (YG) in his early 20s comes up and starts looking at them as well.
After a while, he approaches me:
YG: Can I ask your advice?
Me: You want **my** advice?
YG: I want this mouse. But I met this girl online. We’ve been talking for a coupla weeks and are supposed to meet this weekend, but I only have enough money for either the mouse or to take her out.
Me: Are you into her? Excited to meet her?
YG: I dunno. I guess?
Me: Get the mouse.
In retrospect, fairly sure he didn’t necessarily think I was an employee. But he did leave with the mouse and a big smile on his face. My work was done.
There is so much information out there about mice it's hard to choose how to handle this. I recently read about plugging holes with densely crumpled tin foil. I have been using a staple gun to close off the backs of cabinets and wall units, I'm currently reworking all of our dresser drawers to prevent them from trying to get in for nesting. We have been using peppermint oil religiously, my gf has suggested chili pepper flakes since she used to live in the country and dealt with this problem as a child.
I feel kinda lost and like the mice are winning. We use electric traps, which have caught maybe 20 mice in a month or so.
What advice can reddit give me to try and save the apartment I currently want to stay in (rent is very reasonable)
This is somewhat of a new problem, a tenant in this building passed away and his apartment was gutted, the mice had nowhere else to go. My girlfriend and I are a cluttered people, but we are not unclean, we do not leave food openly available to mice and most of our bagged/perishable foods like rice and oatmeal have always been kept in one of my plethora of mason jars.
Help! I'd rather save for downpayment on a nice house than waste money moving to a place with double the rent. These little bastards are trying to eat my houseplants!! Grrrr!
E: The response I have received in this sub is honestly heart warming. I cant thank you all enough for taking time out of your days to share wisdom and tactics with me. From the bottom of my heart, thank you so much! All of you!
Update#1: My PI is still hesitant to report to IACUC but I just got off the phone with the vet tech supervisor and she will help me send everything to them. She said that this grad student shouldn't work with animals anymore. Will update next week.
Update #2: PI asked us to write a report on Friday evening about the incident. Then on Sunday sent us some euthania guidelines.
Update #3: The entire lab (PI, grad student, and I) had a meeting. PI kept reiterating that the situation should have been kept internally. Doesn't overtly say it, but basically blames me for the shit show. He kept on saying how much this is affecting HIM and how much paperwork HE has to fill out. He also has several meetings scheduled for this week and the official investigation will be done on Thursday.
During the meeting the grad student threatened me, "something is going to happen to you, I don't know what but something." I immediately asked if it was a threat and she's said, "sure, since you think everything is a threat while smirking." Emailed HR immediately and left the lab.
Apologies for all the updates but documenting everything is helping me process the shit show.
Fellow labrats, I have a dilemma and I need advice on how to handle the situation. On Monday of this week the grad student in our lab was carrying out an experiment on newborn pups. She was going to do an ex vivo experiment where she would collect the skin and culture it for 7 days. We usually euthanize the pups by decapitation but she wanted to drown them in 70% ethanol. She had already collected their tails and placed them in small vials when my back was turned. I tried to reason with her but she was very resistant and got really angry with me. She stormed off and left me to deal with her mess. I promptly euthanized the pups and informed my PI of the situation. He wants to keep the issue within the lab and does not want to escalate it. This is not the first time that this grad student has treated the mice questionably.
She and I used to get along but she is now acting childish by ignoring me and making rude comments in lab meetings about my performance. I've asked her to stop but she continues. My PI is aware of the situation and has both warned us to get along otherwise HR will get involved. I sent out an email yesterday that if her behavior continues then I will leave the lab even tho I don't want to. Any advice is welcomed. Thanks you.
