I tell people not to make sad noises and fake pout when my kiddo doesn't want hugs. Even her dad who's agreed with me. I get called a SJW and feministic for saying she owes her body to no one. I'm told that of course she'll be instilled with proper concepts and make Good Decions and not go to wild parties at a young age calling out when I did the same because I was 13 + and wanted desperately to have friends, and not feel so alone, after my father died and mom went to work for the first in a Long time. Did I make bad choices? Sure. It wasn't my bad choices that got me raped by a babysitter. It wasn't my bad choices that put me in a corner and made me go for the safest way out with my compliance. It wasn't my bad choices that got me groped on the street by a cyclist at almost 13.
Even when I made bad choices, I felt I Owed my self and worth and body because I'm supposed to and it was part of my worth to others. So yeah if she says no....you can say something like Aw man I really was hoping for a hug but that's okay if you aren't feeling like it right now. Or that's okay, let's do something else. But don't play on her emotions or guilt because that shit Grows deep inside us like a parasite. Before we know it, we judge everything by what pleases those around us and what We owe it to others to be.
Don't fucking come for me because you are a cis male and have No Fucking Clue. How dare you. How fucking dare you.
Edit to add: Men seem to be not understanding that I was venting Because a cis man is telling me it is no big deal. I'm not disparaging all cis males. I was venting At a cis male who's never had to be pleasing, or been harassed or assaulted, and doesn't think Those Things happen and my personal journey through life where I have is not so common I need to worry about teaching her this when they're "just joking". Totally missing the fucking point.
Every single year I use Wikipedia at some point to look up some small fact or detail on a topic, and without fail, students say, “Mr. fiddlesoup! You’re not supposed to use Wikipedia! My teachers always say it’s always inaccurate because anyone can edit it!” Maybe that was true a decade ago, but Wikipedia is a great source for building background knowledge on a topic. It can be used to teach kids proper citation skills. It can teach them the importance of critical thinking when it comes to bias. It is a great source of info and you are harming the future when you actively teach people not to use it, instead of teaching them how to use it. Had to choose a flair, so felt best practices works because actively teaching kids how to learn on their own is a best practice.
Hi. I (F/31 lebanese) have been married to my husband (M/33 Canadian) for 4 months. I only met his family 3-4 times before/after the wedding because we live far from them. I'm on good terms with his family. But his mom can be a little controlling as I have noticed.
Last week my husband said his mom invited us for a family dinner. We needed to go because it was arranged for us. I had no problem since he told me his distant relatives wanted to meet me for the first time. We got there and everything was fine til my husband started speaking arabic words. He's not perfect but he's quick to learn. Him and I were speaking to each other with a bit of arabic that's when my mother in law looked upset and stopped eating suddenly. She asked him where he learned to speak arabic. He told her I was teaching him. She asked me if I was seriously teaching him arabic. I told her not really I just speak in arabic at home and he keeps picking up words. While everyone was watching. She started arguing with me telling me it was not okay for me to 'force' my husband to speak my language. I asked how I was forcing him? She said by only talking to him in arabic. My husband said it's ok he's interested in my language and is planning to spend time learning it. She and my sister in law said he was crazy to waste his time learning arabic since it won't qualify him for better jobs or anything. I got mad since they implied my language was unworthy infront of everyone. I argued with his mom after she said she and family don't want neither me nor my husband to speak arabic in their house again. "Speak english, english is fine".
I got fed up after mother in law kept berating my husband telling him to not try waste his time learning a third world language that's useless and not let me interrupt his work with ridiculous stuff. I got up to leave. They wanted me to let it go and finish dinner but I went back to the hotel after my husband said I overreacted and should've ignored his mom., that's just how she is. He argued with me at the hotel basically saying I could've let it go and chill but I ruined dinner by escalating and having no regard for his relatives who came to see me.
Things have been tense since then. He wants me to go to another dinner before we leave town but I told him I won't go.
I(40f) am currently not working due to an extremely mismanaged labour a little over a year ago that left me unable to stand for extended periods and I had difficulty walking. As a result I've been at home a lot more than I usually am(I usually lecture at a local university). My partner and I own a 5 acre section on the outskirts of a town. There are 2 buildings on the property, our 2 bedroom home and a 8 bedroom former BnB that we run as a very cheap rental(more because the rental market here sucks and we wanted to help out, than because we need the money).
The house is usually mostly rented by teens/young adults who have been placed here by a local council agency that supports young who have mental/physical disabilities or mental health issues. This started a few years back because my partner(a semi retired professor/researcher/Dr) offered to set up a free counseling program for these kids, they found out about the house and it went from there. Depending on the size of the room each room rents for $30-60NZD per week including bills which makes it significantly cheaper than most rentals in the area(about 1/3-1/2 the usual rent).
During lockdown last year I was struggling to keep the house/garden maintained as well as look after the baby and recover. A couple of the kids here noticed and offered to help out until I was better and we came to an agreement where essentially they would do the housework/gardening in exchange for free meals that I'd make for them. I quickly realized that they didn't actually know how to do these things after out laundry got flooded twice , etc. So this ended up getting turned into a "life skills 101" class essentially where I taught them how to repair clothes, get stains out, clean etc and over time also ended up including guidance on how to sit interviews, how to write a CV, how to find a job, play an instrument, cook a variety of meals, etc. I enjoyed it because it made me feel like I wasn't just sitting around doing nothing and they enjoyed not having to buy their own food🤣 most of the kids in the house got involved over time.
Over Xmas a couple of them moved out as they'd found jobs and wanted to live closer to them, one of the new kids that moved in was a girl with DS, she was very passionate about my garden so I taughter her about all the different types of plant and how to look after them and helped her get a part time job at a local plant nursery. The problem is that her mother has now come around and gone completel... keep reading on reddit ➡
We are running the next iteration in my Pay What You Can (PWYC) series. The next class is Getting Started in Security with BHIS and MITRE ATT&CK.
Long name but let me explain.
We took the top 11 things that would shut out a tester and built 11 modules as the core of this training. We then mapped the class to MITRE because everything now needs to map to MITRE.
So, this is a nice logical step from SOC Core skills, and it stands nicely on its own.
Below is a link with a full write-up and the registration link:
Once again, this class is PWYC. This means literally that. You can pay what you can. If you can pay full price, great! If you can pay half, great! Can't pay anything, awesome!
But for now, ask me anything.
I can name around 7 teachers that I have had so far in high school who either didn't teach and set me up for failure for the follow up class or had tests that had 60% class averages. I once got accused of cheating and when asked what made it seem like I cheated the teacher said, "No on has gotten a 100% on my multiple choice tests." Honestly how is that not a red flag? She has been teaching for 17 YEARS, what does that say about her tests? I just feel that schools do not have any standards in place to check if their teachers are doing their job right.
Several people seem to think I should make it easier to get an A+ in a class. I do not it should still be hard and you should have to put the work in or else an A+ loses value. However, a 60% class average should not be acceptable. A failing average means that majority of the students are moving on from that test without learning the material.
When I saw this on KCCI's website I thought they must have misquoted the Senate's action but nope that is exactly what it says. Even if this language doesn't make it through to the final version it is downright chilling to realize that a good portion of our state's legislators approved the inclusion of this language. If you think learning about the history of slavery and segregation are important topics for students to learn about regardless of your opinion on the rest of the bill please contact your local legislator tonight and ask them to remove this language- like right now.
I am beyond happy! I somehow managed to land a job at the company I originally learned C# for! One year of study, I have no idea how many applications, and 6 interviews later I get to do what I love for a living! All I have to say is Wooooooo! And a big thank you to this sub, y'all are amazing!! I am off to drink this champagne guys!
update: My bad guys. I knew I would need to form a list of resources but I was way too giddy to get that done last night. So here we go,
Started studying while I was still employed at the airport, First course I did was the 300 hour web development 101 on codecademy. By the time I finished that course I was actually furloughed and decided to study full time and remain unemployed. I'm just going to list them and all of the books I read in no particular order. I will say that I chose C# to focus on as my OOP and that's reflected in the courses I chose.
UDEMY: The complete web developer course 2.0, C# for beginners- Coding from scratch, React - The complete guide (I still haven't finished this), RPG Core Combat Creator: Learn intermediate Unity C# coding, Learn C# by building applications, CRUD application using C# and SQLite, Build a real world app with asp.net core and angular
TIM COREY: The complete foundation in C# course (this one was a beast for me)
Code: hidden language, C# Player's guide **, C# in depth (haven't finished this one), Clean Code **
YOUTUBE: Mostly Tim Corey, Mosh and anything I felt could make up for me not having a CS degree. Or any degree. And shout out to tech lead! His insanely dry humor helped keep my spirits up.
I studied for 6 - 10 hours a day for four days a week. I would occasionally take days off to get some yard work done or do something physical. I doubted myself a lot, I still doubt myself but I think in the interviews with this company they knew that I was very passionate and want to learn as much as I can. I really believe my attitude is what got me this job because my portfolio is nothing to write home about.

There's a huge range of information that girls aren't getting in their education, much of which has to be learnt later via the internet.
Schools should be teaching girls how to self-examine their breasts and what abnormalities to be aware of, as well as things like how to treat yeast infections, and the sorts of symptoms to look out for that let you know that things aren't quite right in the reproductive department.
I would have liked to have been taught about endometriosis. I would have liked to have been taught what was normal and what wasn't.
Girls aren't getting the information they need. That needs to change.
Hello, Reddit! We are cybersecurity researchers who wrote a book called Practical IoT Hacking that teaches readers how to hack Internet of Things devices safely and lawfully, with practical hands on examples and proven methodologies. You can buy physical and Kindle copies through Amazon or get the physical copy and DRM-free digital copy through the publisher No Starch Press.
We have spent our careers addressing critical issues in IoT devices that could lead to loss of life or privacy breaches. Our work has influenced people around the world, including manufacturers, hospitals, and public policymakers. We believe that enabling more people to find unforeseen risks in a safe manner and report them in good faith can inoculate against accidents and adversaries causing harm. So we wrote a book to teach others who want to be a part of the solution.
We believe that societal dependence on connected technology is growing faster than our ability to secure it. As we adopt technology stacks in the works around us, we inadvertently import cybersecurity risks that can impact human life, public safety, and national security.
By understanding the threat and vulnerability components of these risks, we can defend against them. Mature manufacturers seek to learn from cybersecurity researchers and take reports of flaws they discover - so they can eliminate them in current and future products.
