I was diagnosed with a terminal progressive disease called Toxic Acute Progressive Leukoencephalopathy. This put me into locked in syndrome and hospice for six months.
Here are some facts about what happened:
Memorial Day weekend 2017, I was diagnosed with Acute Toxic Progressive Leukoencephalopathy. There is no way to prove what caused my illness. The only thing they know for sure is that it was from inhaling a toxin. This disease is nicknamed chasing the Dragon syndrome, I used to smoke heroin on tinfoil, odds are it was a cutting agent.
This is my recovery journey from Locked-in syndrome (LIS), also known as pseudocoma. It is a condition in which a patient is aware but cannot move or communicate verbally due to complete paralysis of nearly all voluntary muscles in the body except for vertical eye movements and blinking.
I will be making video posts as I was getting sicker leading up to me being locked in and then my miraculous recovery.
Everyone thought I was “Brain dead”... keep reading on reddit ➡
I'm not sure how much traction this will gain but I'm hoping we can turn some of the anger and frustration we are feeling at the current state of affairs into meaningful change.
One of the biggest issues this city faces with police accountability is that the police union has an extremely favorable contract: https://www.checkthepolice.org/#review
Seattle fails on every one of the 6 areas that the above organization looks at. I am summarizing the relevant part of the report for Seattle below. these are extremely favorable terms that prevent real accountability.
Impact: 180 day statute of limitations on investigations or no discipline can be imposed
Impact: 5 day delay, with the option of having a 1 day delay in exigent circumstances
Impact: Gives officers immediate access to the recorded interrogation
We live in a blue city in a blue state. Yet, many of the commonplace policies that could be used to reduce incidents' of police abuse have not been implemented here. Left leaning citizens in "progressive" areas, such as myself, become complacent. We think because we elect the "right" people that our work is done. Well it's not. Complacent citizenry makes for complacent elected representatives.
In terms of police brutality, action at the local level can have the most practical and noticeable impact. We currently have the most diverse and most progressive city council in the history of the city and we actually might be able to make some real change.
Firs things first: the Boston city budget. Currently, the highest allocation goes to education, which is a good thing, but the second largest allocation is to "public safety." That's 19% of the budget or $693 million. Obviously, some of that is the fire department and EMS. Transportation... keep reading on reddit ➡
- Because our on prem pbx is working perfectly fine, and I don't see any need to replace a working (and completely paid for) pbx system...
- Why don't you call around and get some quotes to completely move our pbx into the cloud...
So here we are. For some reason nobody knows why, I will be moving my pbx into the cloud... But after some calls for quotes, vendors are asking me "why I don't skip PBX's all together and replace my phone system with an 0365/teams-integration-solution". According to them, calling my "office number" will allow me to answer the call on either pc, deskphone or cellphone; with or without headset...
We have 0365/teams with the correct E3-license.
But I know jack about said integration and why (or why not) I should consider said modus operandi.
Can someone enlighten me why this is a good/bad idea?
We have (as I said) our own PBX on site, some 30+ deskphones (most of them analogue , some voip, non SIP), and do nothing fancy with it. I th

I just can’t resist the urge to rest when I want to go out and work out a little bit. Because of this routine, I feel sleepy all day. I keep procrastinating going for a work out. In morning, I tell myself I’ll go in evening and in evening I tell myself I’ll go next morning. How do you get out of this loop?
I am not an anti-vaxxer, and I have autism spectrum disorder. I am mostly asking as a way to refute the common anti-vaxxer myth that doctors are being paid to push vaccines with malicious intent. Wouldn't the treatment of said preventable childhood diseases allow doctors to bill you and/or your insurance company way more than if they just gave your child vaccines?
