So dems and the gop agreed on a relief bill with $600 stimulus checks.
Trump said he would veto unless it's increased to $2000 https://mobile.twitter.com/realDonaldTrump/status/1341537886315950080?s=20
Now dems say they want $2000 and the gop are blocking it. https://www.cbsnews.com/amp/news/stimulus-check-2000-dollar-direct-payments-democrats/
It seems very disingenuous to agree to one thing and then when Trump out lefts them to say no we always wanted the more popular position.
I've no doubt the gop are holding it up now, but can someone explain why the dems would agree in the first place?
My cousin is in her late 20s and going through this thinks she needs to be a (famous) artist because that’s her calling. I tell her you can always be an artist and find a way to earn a living along side. I don’t wake up excited to do my job every day but I get satisfaction out of it because it matches what I am good at and is new and different every day.
Edit: Thanks for all the love! Also my first awards! If this helped one person understand that they are ok who and where they are in life I will be ecstatic!!
Edit 2: Clarity that she is a great artist just doesn’t have to make it or live some crazy artist lifestyle to be fulfilled. Added Famous in there.
This was a hard lesson I recently came to terms with in life. I am fairly young (26) so don’t really have any hard feelings about it. I always felt I needed others to enjoy the same hobbies as me to actually enjoy doing them. This made me miss a lot of opportunities to just enjoy life.
If you want to do something (anything, be it physical, mental) just do it. By all means, extend an invite to others, but if nobody makes plans, just go do it yourself.
Instead of asking “hey, we should go out and do ______ some time”, say “hey, I’m going to go _________, did you want to come?”
This way you already have plans to do whatever it is you’re doing, and you’re just extending an invite. Not actually basing whether you will do thing on someone else.
Hope this helps someone!
Edit: A lot of comments are pointing this out. Obviously with Covid you need to be responsible about these “activities”. In my case, fishing alone outdoors really doesn’t have any covid complications.
Like many gamers have posted on the CDPR forums, accessibility software like Autohotkey, Xpadder, joy2key etc. is apparently being blocked in Cyberpunk 2077. It seems any kind of virtual/emulated key input is ignored by the game.
Many disabled gamers are not able to play Cyberpunk 2077 because of this.
If you are affected or want to show support please let the developers know.
EDIT 5: The Performance Overhaul mod now fixes the virtual input bug without the need to manually modify the game exe-file.
It resolves some performance issues as well.
Thanks goes to yamashi
EDIT 4: A big thank you to u/oppai for fixing the virtual input bug for everyone that couldn't play without some accessibility tools.
Thank you u/Huuf for your offer to help with my gaming controls.
And thanks for all the awards and upvotes that helped raise awareness.
And a special thanks to the people that gave gold and palatinum awards!
EDIT 3: Moderator Draconifers has comfirmed on the CDPR forums: "CDPR are looking into this issue, so it is being acknowledged. In the meantime, feel free to continue sharing any solutions you find."
EDIT 2: I just found out about this fix by reddit user u/oppai for virtual input not being accepted
The fix works perfectly for me. I tried it with GlovePIE, Autohotkey and IRIS. Please let us know if it works for you guys.
Thanks a lot u/oppai :)
Clarification: I can't move my hands because of a muscular distrophy. I can press 4 mouse buttons with my toes and move the mouse cursor with a head mouse.
I'm using GlovePIE and Autohotkey to remap those 4 buttons so I can virtually "press"/emulate 10 to 15 keys.
On top of that I'm using IRIS with a Tobii Eye Tracker 4C. This makes it possi... keep reading on reddit ➡
After three years, Andy was recognized as one of the best carpenters in the local area.
Often he would be given a weekend pass to do odd jobs for the citizens of the community and he always reported back to prison before Sunday night was over.
The warden was thinking of remodeling his kitchen and in fact had done much of the work himself.
But he lacked the skills to build a set of kitchen cupboards and a large counter top, which he had promised his wife.
So he called Andy into his office and asked him to complete the job for him.
But, alas, Andy refused.
He told the warden, "Gosh, I'd really like to help you but counter fitting is what got me into prison in the first place."
I get the need and importance for activism, but if you make it your mission to creep it into every conversation you have, just to prove to everyone that you care, you’re really annoying. There are other things in life to talk about that believe it or not have nothing to do with your opinion on society.
This was removed by the mods for being hypothetical but I imagine this has happened during trials or we wouldn’t have the statistics we have. So I’m reposting it with less “hypothetical” language.
It’s my understanding that the first dose (of the Pfizer vaccine) is 52% effective at preventing COVID and the second is 95% effective. So what happens if you are exposed to COVID and contract it in the 21/28 days between doses? In the trials, did those participants get the second dose? Did they get it while infectious or after recovering? Or were they removed from the study?
Asking because I just received the Moderna vaccine a few days ago and I want to know what would happen if I were to get it from one of my patients during the limbo period between doses. Thanks!
