Why I shared here: I'm Indian and I registered 5 years ago for 3 mobile numbers and they, get a maximum of 1 SMS per week. My father worked for a popular telecom company and shared this to me. It seems American subscribers still receive calls. Also, I don't know why Germany doesn't have any

CRA Press Release: >As part of the government’s ongoing commitment to transparency, today the Canada Revenue Agency (CRA) launched the Canada Emergency Wage Subsidy Registry. This web page allows Canadians to identify which employers are using the wage subsidy to support jobs.
>The wage subsidy can only be claimed for employee remuneration by eligible organizations that have experienced a drop in revenue. The wage subsidy eligibility criteria are built into the application process and subject to verification by the CRA. Penalties for non-compliance with program parameters can include repayment of the wage subsidy, an additional 25 per cent penalty, and potentially imprisonment in cases of fraud. > >... > >Sole proprietors have been filtered out of the published registry in order to protect their personal information.
Hey guys. After following this sub for a while I feel pretty confident about your judgements, so here's my question if anyone has an opinion.
My fiance and I are slowly planning our wedding (we got engaged during covid times and decided to wait til vaccination is underway in our area to start booking anything and set a date, so hopefully we'll have that soon) and have been joking about what to do about gifts until we realized, hey, this one is actually a decent idea. Relevant backstory: we both have artsy hobbies-- I always say he's the Arts (painter/muralist) and I'm the Crafts (origami/knitting/sewing/etc). We're hoping to integrate the art theme into our wedding as much as possible, with handmade favors and flowers, invitations on paint samples, mini canvases as the guest book, all that jazz.
Would "registering" at art stores instead of a traditional registry be weird or tacky? I'm mainly hedgy about it because gift cards would really be the practical way to do it-- I know we're both particular about what we use, him especially, and it would take a wild level of advance project planning to make it a list of individual items. And asking for money (which gift cards basically are) instead of gifts feels a little weird. Also, if you think it's an okay idea, what's a good way to word this?
Thanks! And sorry this was long!
dont steal my story
What's wrong with target? isn't the baby going to poop and pee and outgrow the clothes in like a week?
shutting that down...
she has gotten insanely overbearing with what i should do and shouldn't do with the registry and the baby..like no i don't want to go to buybuybaby or amazon.. and no i don't want baby books to clutter my house, i have other things in mind to help the baby grow and develop.. wtf
edit: thank you all for your answers! i am not changing anything form my registry.. i LOVE target.
in terms of the baby books, i don't like baby books, not book. we have all the dr. seuess books, the grimm brother fairy tales, and the collection of all calvin and hobbs (plus colorful nat geo type of books).. i just dislike baby-books...

Dispensaries can't dispense to us, and we can't renew our cards or view our scripts. Wouldn't recommend visiting a dispo right now. (But it's none of their fault's!)

FINAL EDIT: All working
Looking at their website and team, I think I found one doctor, and he's not an MD, but a Phd. I don't know about you, but I'm not giving my information to a private organization that I never heard of nor trust.
Why can't the city build its own registry within the Dept of Health?
Sorry I know this is a common complaint but it’s so frustrating! I get that baby blankets and newborn onesies are adorable but I almost feel bad because people are basically wasting their money. Our registry is super basic and nothing overly expensive anyway, and people are spending even more on over priced organic materials that the baby will grow out of or that will honestly get lost in the bottom of the pile (this is my second and trust me it happens). I’m grateful but damn we need diapers!
My brother got engaged last year! Because of Covid-19 we didn't really get a chance to see him or my future sister-in-law for the entire year.
Well, we finally had a small (7 in total) family Christmas get together including me, my SO, our son, my brother, his fiancee, and our parents. This would be the last time to see my brother and future SIL before their January 2021 wedding.
I don't have a lot of communication with her. They live several hours away and have been together a couple of years. So, I've seen her on a few occasions in that time. However, I am in their wedding, so our conversations have been pretty much kept to wedding plans like what bridesmaid dress to wear and rehearsal dinner stuff. So, I asked my brother what did they want for Christmas.
He said to just pick anything off of their wedding registry as it was something they needed/wanted. Done! I picked out three items -- one for both of them and one for their engagement since we never got a chance to properly celebrate that. I wrapped everything up and gave it to them on our family celebration day.
When she unwrapped their gifts, she frowned, and said something to my brother (loud enough for us all to hear) to the effect of, "Why would they purchase Christmas gifts from our wedding registry? Now there won't be enough options for actual wedding guests." The rest of the family gettogether was slightly awkward and she kept to herself for the rest of the occasion.
I didn't say anything at the moment. But later my brother let me know that future SIL was, in fact, upset that we used their wedding registry as a Christmas wish list. I reminded him that HE was the one who suggested I purchase from it. He acknowledged this but asked if I could please apologize to future SIL so she didn't feel like we were purposefully picking items off their registry to leave little behind for others. I refused to apologize. And now things are a bit tense. I'm struggling to see things from her perspective. But I guess I could be the asshole for purchasing items meant for wedding gifts as Christmas gifts.
So, Reddit, AITA for buying my brother and future SIL Christmas gifts from their wedding registry?
When I was pregnant I was sooo overwhelmed with what to buy/put on registry. I spent HOURS researching everything so I thought this might help someone out! I wrote this originally for my friend and didn’t edit it for internet folks so Nora is my daughter :)
Also, these are items that I use pretty much everyday and I’m a slight minimalist!
Why don't we make a registry of every democrat and republican law maker, their phone numbers, their voting records, their tweets, and their funding, and lay it all out on a spectrum.
It's important to fight crazy people's narratives with facts and kindness.
And what better way than comparing every progressives voting record, concrete facts that cannot be disputed, to centrists and Republicans.
We should only be angry and yell at the politicians.
People tend to have amnesia when earth rocking things happen. As you say propaganda tends to do this often and distract people.
Watch how distracted everyone will be when america announces it's going to war with iran or sending drone strikes. Or the next white nationalist shoots some place up.
What I suggest is we make a layered and neatly sorted spectrum of "progressive" - to "authoritarian" or far right.
And when we put all their record on display we can easily put the progressives where they really lie.
And we update it.

We share it and we always put the appropriate links to make the website or infographic up to date periodically.
And when we are making strategy we have a board to point to so we can see everything like they do.
If we intend to play this game we have to see the board so we can more effectively plan our next move. Like chess
Little one is due in April, so I ended up sending out my registry early to family for Christmas gifts. This is our first baby and we'll take ALL the help we can get!
That said.. now as I prepare for a baby shower (socially distanced of course, thanks Covid) I am wondering if I should remove some of the items on there that have already been purchased. They do state "purchased" or "reserved".. but I feel like they add unnecessary clutter to the registry?
Any thoughts on this? Maybe I'm overthinking it.
FYI, using Babylist to register and LOVE it. So easy. I enjoy that items can have links for multiple stores to purchase from, and you can literally add ANYTHING on the internet to your list.
When I was pregnant I found it difficult to find a minimalist baby registry that wasn't just diapers, wipes, a few onesies, carseat and a place to sleep. Also due to COVID we lived in a studio with a baby for the first 4 months. So the less stuff the better. I am also a compulsive researcher/Taurus who likes to share my finds. I try to balance quality with price. Hope this is helpful to someone out there!
Pre-baby buys aka Mom stuff:
Waterproof mattress cover for your bed. Who knows if your water will break in the middle of the night. Also once the baby is here, bodily fluids are ALL OVER. Plus our cat was so stressed out by the baby he peed the bed. Twice.
Pregnancy pillow. I bought a wedge pillow and it worked just fine for my pregnancy. I liked that it was smaller for long term storage.
Baby book: Mushybooks. Love it. Get one early to fill in how you found out/told people/celebrated the lead up to baby. I got mine after giving birth and was behind in filling it out!
Tuck pads, Perineal Medicated Witch Hazel Full-Length from Frida Mom, and regular pads worked fine for me.
Place to sleep: Pack and Play with bassinet feature. Do not get the changer or baby holder - waste of space and $$. He eventually will go on a floor bed Montessori style at home and the Pack and Play will go to Grandmas (free childcare). I know lots of minimal blogs like mini cribs, but to me they are too expensive and not versatile enough for our family. They do however look a lot better/are more beautiful.
Swaddles: aden and anais are nice, but the cheaper ones work great too (we bought Swaddledesigns) or slightly unethical life pro tip - steal the hospital swaddles!
Mattress protector/sheets: 1 mattress protector (Swaddlez brand on Amazon) and 2 fitted sheets (American Baby Company). I didn’t do the “layered” system of two mattress protectors and two sheets. Never had an issue. If we had ensuite laundry I would have only bought 1 fitted sheet.
Diaper cream: Sudocream. Buy two. One for house and one for travel. Ask your doctor for samples.
Aveno eczema cream. Ask your doctor for samples.
Cereve baby wash. Again, ask your doctor for samples!
Butt spatula: Buy 2, one for diaper bag and one for house.
Clothes: Zippered sleepers, everyone says it, no one wants to buy them because it’s boring, but Carter’s fleece zippered sleepers are amazing. A few long and short sleeve onesies and two pairs of pants with feet. Add some cotton baby hats and you’re gold... keep reading on reddit ➡

"How to use PowerShell to Get a Registry Value"
Summary: Learn how to use PowerShell to get a registry value, registry key information and more in this tutorial walkthrough!
Happy New Year folks! With the extra holiday time this week, I had some time to finally do some of the big changes to the Companion Player Registry that I've had on the books. Let me show you what's new!
Team now allows multiple selections, so you can filter from a variety of teams. Position now includes groups for batter and pitcher, making it easier to filter by player type.
Card Type utilizes this newer, more functional style as well.
The two OVR and aOVR slider filters have been replaced by a new Stat Filter section. Now, you can filter by each of the individual base stats! To reduce the amount of space the sliders take up, they've been condensed so only one shows at a time. Don't worry though! You're not limited to only the visible filter; you can still set each filter to a different min/max value pair. As you cycle through the options in the Stat Filter picker, the slider will adjust to any settings you've already made.
In addition to the new Stat Filter, I've added two more fields: Show Unavailable and Show Stat Columns.
Show Unavailable will... show you unavailable players. Players who cannot currently be acquired in the game. This box is unchecked by default. This is to help reduce confusion over which cards are off the table. Unavailable players will still be greyed out in the results.
Show Stat Columns is an exciting one: the Companion Registry finally includes the ability to see all of the player stats in the results table! Now you can easily compare stats between different players. In conjunction with the Stat Filter, this should make it easier than ever to find the best players in the Companion Registry.
Here's a side-by-side comparison of the... keep reading on reddit ➡
It’s all led up to this, let’s hope the FISDAP helped.
Any last minute tips and tricks besides stay calm?
Thanks guys, wish me luck :)
