  5. That, and while 4 weeks of paid leave ain't enough and should be higher, right now we have unpaid leave only. Perfect doesn't have to be the enemy of advancing a good cause and having something there. Many programs that progressives cherish were not in fully-formed when they began. But what you're saying is likely falling on deaf ears. As it stands, I may have to abandon this thread. It's reading more and more like reactions from left-wing pundits and what some members' Twitter feeds look like, and regular stories on it aren't shared or discussed. And since everything is negative, everybody who broke after 2016 is going down a toilet bowl of emotions, so every 10th post is somebody talking about the end of everything. Maybe it'll improve. Or not, I've kind of given up on that front.

  6. Quick-thinking hikers turn their turbans into a rope to save two men from water WWW.NEWSWEEK.COM "In Sikhi, we are taught to help someone in any way we can with anything we have, even our turban," one of the rescuers said. Pretty awesome.

  8. I understand the impulse, and I've got plenty of problems with the ACA, but something is still better than nothing, both in a political sense and in a real practical one. Even a severely scaled back bill would do some real good, and I'd rather the message in the next election cycle be "here's what we got so far, elect more democrats and we can do more."

  9. There's a reason why in a medical emergency one of the first steps in the CPR/first aid process is to single someone out and tell them specifically to call 911. Just shout "someone call 911!" Leads to no one calling 911.

  10. As someone who's been watching foreign content for a long time particularly from Asia, the Korean to English writing doesn't even register or bother me any more. The languages are so different that you almost expect that something that sounds ok in Korean will probably sound hokey when translated to English and spoken by an english speaker. Not something that bothers me in the least any more but I guess if you don't watch a lot of this stuff it would. Watching old Jackie Chan movies from Hong Kong with English dubs was unintentionally hilarious sometimes.

  25. It doesn't seem like anything has really changed since Senator Manchin said he wouldn't go above 1.5 trillion dollars. I skip all the outrage tweets and I'm in better mental health because of it. I'm most disappointed that the climate provisions are being gutted. A carbon tax is even supported by some oil companies.

  28. it depends. when i get into a squad with no comms, i bounce. you absolutely need to communicate in this game. you also really need to work with your squad. this game does not work as a lone wolf. it becomes a walking simulator and youll spend 10 minutes getting up to the frontline and get killed instantly, just to have to wait 40 seconds to respawn all the way back at HQ. The squad dynamic of this game is amazing too. Every member literally needs to play a roll. The squad leader communicates with command and other squad leaders (which is not heard by the rest of the squad). so they are taking direction from the commander. they also place down garrisons or outposts (which are spawn points). they can call in supply drops, air support or radar to the commander as well The support member needs to provide supplies to the squad leader so they can build the spawn points Rifleman can provide ammo to the squad if youre holding down a point. also just an all-round infantryman role. Engineer can build nodes (munition, fuel, barricades, etc). they also have access to AP and AT mines, which is key when fortifying an objective. Medic - obv. can revive down team members and heal them Anti-tank - self-explanatory for those pesky tanks that are wreaking havoc on the team Assault - usually first in or used for scouting a head since they have both grenades and smoke Honestly, this game is what Battlefield should be like. Take the fast-paced arcadey gameplay of BF with the squad-based gameplay of HLL. Add in the BF destruction and overall polish and you have a masterpiece.

  29. Charge all those people under whatever Samaritan law you can (yeah, yeah, I know that's not how those laws work, despite Seinfeld). I get not directly intervening...PERHAPS (depending on circumstances, especially if it's 1:1)...but not even calling 911? Fuck those people.

  30. I think for a lot of people COVID helped them see how shitty their companies and employers really were. For the longest time, people felt like they were in indentured service to wherever they worked, but when companies started to cut back and cut off staff, that staff began to realize how insignificant they were, and like most instances of having to find other sources of income to survive, they did, and now they don't need those oppressive companies any longer. Sure, there are a lot more factors involved, but I think that has a lot to do with it as well.
