Hey guys. In the past 13 months I have sucessfully lost 65 pounds through calorie tracking, cardio and lifting weights. For the past three months I tried to push harder with my diet and overall approach, so I created a new plan, started even tracking my training, counting steps and so on. The goal was 12bf% which according to my calculations should have been around 165 lbs and 75cms in my waist circumference. The plan should originally have taken 12weeeks and everything was going very well, even above expectations for the first 8 weeks. But then a switch inside of me flipped,since then I started having insane cravings (never had those in the previous year), no food can fully satisfy me, I have urges to not overeat, but STUFF myself, few times I actually was more than stuffed but I just couldn’t stop eating.(yes I then feel sick) I can be good for the whole day but evening hits and my cravings are insane, it almost feels like something is inside my head telling me to eat eat eat and I just can’t say no. Its really weird, I have never experienced something similiar before, therefore I ask for advice here.
As a result of that Im yo-yoing back to where I started the last three month phase.
I have also tried to lower and stop the yo-yo effect by immediately going onto maintanence calories, lowering my cardio a bit. I’m also trying to find new food options that could satisfy my needs better. (Anabolic French toast really helped)
My best guess would be that I took things too far too quickly. Losing 9 cm in my waist circumference in 3 months was just too quick and I should have rather aimed for like 1-2cm a month, which would allow me to make it more of a lifestyle, have occasional craving food and be satisfied, instead of all the cravings hitting all at once and making me bump right back.
My plan is to stay at maintenance for a bit, set up good and firm grounds (momentum) for next “phase” and then slowly lose a small amount of weight and waist circumference every month.
What do you guys think? Do you have any tips? Have this ever happened to you? How do I cope with the yo-yo, and how do I prevent it from shooting me even higher than I was?

2023.05.28 14:27 Pitiful_Assumption35 Hazards and lost person behavior in the Talamanca region

Analysis of Search Incidents and Lost Person Behavior in Yosemite National Park
Referenced from Lost Person Behavior by Jared Doke.
Yosemite National Park is an American national park in the state of California.
Crampton (1988) described a continuum of being lost with two distinct degrees of lostness.
The 1st, and arguably the most serious, is defined as “unknown lost”.
This occurs when a person believed that they knew where they were, when in fact they didn't.
This could happen to a hiker if they arrived at a diverging trail and took one path, but misidentified the one they should have otherwise taken.
The hiker may continue on in a denial process, fitting the terrain to their expectations, rejecting any discrepancies.
Eventually, they will have realized the mistake they had made, and only then can they take action to correct their errors.
Lost people generally have two goals: to try to find their way or to try to be found (Cornell and Heth 1999).
Yosemite National Park is unlike any other place on earth. It has its own distinct geology,
One must first understand the environment, hazards, and underlying processes that influence a lost hikers' decisions.
The geology, geomorphology, climate, weather, hydrology, vegetation, fauna, history, park visitation, and potential hazards are all relevent here.
The data indicates that people don't get lost at random locations, rather they get lost after they arrive at pre-known locations.
In Yosemite Valley these “hot spot” areas exist at the Yosemite Valley rim, Glacier Point, Sentinel Dome, the Badger Pass Ski area as well as a few trailheads.
Conversely, lost hikers are also found at pre-known locations as well.
The same significant “hot spot” areas.
On the Pianista trail, River 1/508 would be an example of a well known location.
Where a diverging trail exists, is after crossing river 2, there is an open paddock.
In Yosemite Valley, 45% of hikers, whilst present on the trail, had identified themselves as being lost or agreed that they didn't know where they were.
This figure should probably be higher, but hikers are often too embarrased to admit to being lost.
Main Contributing Factor n %
Lost Trail Accidentally 16.9%
Failed to research the trail and identify a planned route 11.7%
Miscalculation of time or distance of trail 9.4%
Darkness 7.0%
Left Trail Intentionally 5.6%
Insufficient Information/Error in Judgment 5.6%
Snow on Ground 5.2%
Wrong Trail Taken 4.7%
Fatigue/Physical Condition 4.2%
Steep Terrain 2.8%
Emotionally Upset 2.4%
Ground Level Fall 1.9%
For the most part, the lost incidents had a favorable outcome.
Of the 213 incidents, 68% resulted in the lost person/group being found uninjured and 23% were resolved by self-rescue.
10 incidents concluded with the subject being found injured, 9 subjects were found deceased, and 2 were found with medical problems.
Types of lost mitigation strategies used
In Yosemite, lost hikers who were in an active state of lostness typically attempted to follow a linear feature, in order to reorient themselves, or to become found.
Route Traveling 41.9%
Staying Put 25.7%
Backtracking 16.2%
Random Traveling 5.4%
View Enhancing 4.1%
Route Sampling 2.7%
Direction Traveling 2.7%
Doing Nothing 1.4%
The goal of Yosemite's PSAR program is to “help visitors avoid the need to be rescued by providing education about the hazards of hiking, and the time and equipment necessary to complete a planned hike
One of the most promising aspects of this report was the realization that watersheds may be used to predict the found locations for lost subjects.
A watershed is an area of land that drains all the streams and rainfall to a common outlet such as the outflow of a reservoir, mouth of a bay, or any point along a stream channel.
Watersheds are often used to draw search segments because ridges and streams provide natural borders for searchers in the field.
Kris and Lisanne very much underestimated their hike. It wasn't a pleasant afternoon trip, it was described as a walk in the park.
Alot of people posted to forums after this incident, and it's interesting to read the most revevent statements from 2014 that were the most accurate and well thought out:
"I've studied this case a great deal, and I think it's very possible that Kris and Lisanne didn't know that once you reach the summit, you're supposed to turn around and go down the way you came up. The El Pianista trail does not end at the summit"
"I believe they thought you're supposed to follow the trail down the other side of the mountain, and they probably also thought that it would take about as long to get down that side as it took them to get up the other side - about three hours."
"They might not have even been truly lost when they made their first 9-11 calls; they may have gotten lost only later in the evening, by travelling desperately in low light and darkness in an attempt to avoid spending the night in the jungle, perhaps leaving the trail to take "shortcuts."?"
"It is important to note that there are many paths made by the indigenous Ngobe tribes people, leading away from the official path, even locals and tour guides get regularly lost there and there are no signs that are indicating which path is the right one."
"These paths are well known for being incredibly dangerous (narrow, steep ascents/descents, slippy mud track and dangerous rope bridges) and are even avoided by the indigenous tribe at all costs."
"At this point it was already unlikely that they would meet another person there, since every local knows that they are otherwise risking their lives, by deviating onto these less traveled pathways."
"Oh, it's VERY possible to get lost on the El Pianista, and I'm speaking from experience! I hiked this same trail and got lost just 3 weeks ago while on vacation - signs at the base next to the restaurant even say it's prohibited to hike unless for scientific purposes. You have to cross two streams, and halfway up the trail it becomes practically nonexistent - once I got to the top, about a 3 hour hike without seeing one person, I lost track of the trail and lost my mind within seconds, and began running downhill completely lost - All the vegetation made it impossible to walk at times, I had to climb, crawl and scoot downhill for Two hours before I eventually wandered into someone's property and yelled for help."
"People do get lost. Sometimes fog can blanket the area and there's no visibility. A heavy rain can wash out trails. There can be confusion with game trails, because they are pathways that give the hiker the false impression that they are navicable."
Off The Beaten Path – Cerro de la Muerta
Consisting of steep, narrow curves and countless potholes, the mountain roads would be somewhat less hazardous if not fully submersed in fog. Due to its altitude, Cerro de la Muerte temperatures rise and fall to both day and night extremes.
Before Costa Rica had a lot of roads, people braved the treacherous mountain trails barefoot, on treks lasting three or four days, to secure supplies for their homes and livestock.
For many, Cerro de la Muerte was the worst part of a journey, many people didn't survive it.
With temperatures often below freezing, many travelers died of hypothermia along the trail or got sick and died of pneumonia later on, assuming they survived the frequent landslides and didn’t fall off any of the cliffs etc.
Sunburn danger here is higher than normal, owing to the thin clear air.
The road is usually open all year round, but flash floods, landslides, narrow curves, and steep cliffs make the pass extremely dangerous. There’s a reason this place is called the Mountain of Death.
Higher mountain peaks extend along the Cordillera de Talamanca, the region that the Pianista trail leads into.
Montane streams in the tropics are among the most extreme fluvial environments in the world. A combination of steep slopes, high mean annual rainfall, and intense tropical storms generate an energetic and powerful flow regime.
Much of the range and the area around it is included in La Amistad International Park, which also is shared between the two countries.
The highest peaks are present within Costa Rica and Panama.
Much of the Caribbean areas of this range are still unexplored.
Rapid runoff production generates flashy, frequent, short-duration floods and occasional high-magnitude floods associated with hurricanes and other tropical disturbances.
During the peak wet season, strong hydraulic forces are present within the stream channels.
The Changuinola is a river network with well-developed downstream hydraulic geometry.
Many alluvial rivers develop systematic changes in slope, channel geometry, and grain size, from their headwaters to the coast, in response to changes in discharge and sediment yield.

2023.05.28 14:10 UnluckyRabbit9238 My mom's side of the family prefers my male cousins and I'm so tired of it.

I (18F) just graduated from high school a few days ago. I study abroad in an IB school and it was so challenging that I'm surprised I graduated, though I won't get the results of my finals until July. I've spent the last two years having breakdowns and crying myself to sleep and BEGGING my parents to let me change schools because of how hard the curriculum was. It especially took a toll on me because I've always been considered a top student so going from that to barely passing was a huge slap.
It's also important to mention that my mom is my grandmother's scapegoat. Because of this, my grandmother actively shows her favouritism of my cousins. It doesn't help that they're both boys as well. Every single one of their achievements has gotten a huge celebration. She travelled to another city so she didn't miss either one of their HS graduation. I didn't even get a text from her.
A few months ago, when I got accepted into a top university for the field I wanted to study, nobody on my mom's side of the family called or texted me. I expected this from my cousins as they had no way of knowing but my mom announced it on the "adults only" family group chat so my aunt and grandmother don't have an excuse, especially since my cousins got a huge celebration when they got into mediocre universities.
Also, every summer, she wakes my sister and I up at 5am to make us cook for my cousins. Mind you, they're both adults (19 & 24) and know how to cook. She makes us to their laundry and everything too.
My cousin "Ali" (24M) texted me yesterday to congratulate me on graduating. It made me cry. We're not very close but the fact that he was the only one who remembered was a bittersweet feeling. He asked me where I planned to go to university and urged me to study in the same city as him.
Also, this treatment isn't remotely normal in her culture. I'm Turkish, my mom is half Turkish half French, with my grandmother being fully French. She actively believes the French are more "civilised" than Turkish people. My dad's side of the family (Turkish) called me during my ceremony to express how proud they were of me which honestly felt amazing.
I'm very hurt that not even my aunt called to congratulate me, especially since she has always voiced her concerns about my grandmother's treatment of my sister and I. I feel betrayed and abandoned, I'm honestly considering going no contact with that side besides Ali because I can't deal with this anymore. I'm so tired.

2023.05.28 12:07 jedinaps Wondering what I can be looking at for a while before I’m ready

Hi! Just to clarify, I am not looking to jump into this, I’m just hoping to get some guidance as I’m prepping to get a dog in the next like 1-1.5 years. I’ve always wanted a dog but was never in the situation to. I believe I’ll be ready around this timeline and I didn’t want to get attached to the idea of a breed that isn’t realistic for my needs. Needing a little more financial stability for regular vet visits and dog’s needs and I expect to have this at that time.
1) Will this be your first dog? If not, what experience do you have owning/training dogs?
First time!
2) Do you have a preference for rescuing a dog vs. going through a reputable breeder? Very set on rescuing but wanting a young dog that can be better trained and bonding
3) Describe your ideal dog.
I try to be realistic with this, I know there are no unicorns. But my ideal would be a small dog that will lay around and watch a movie with me. Very much a companion dog. Hoping to be able to take it to dog friendly public places eventually. Chill is a high priority.
4) What breeds or types of dogs are you interested in and why?
I’ve looked at chihuahuas, poms, mini schnauzers, yorkies, papillions, mini dachunds, lhasa Apsos
5) What sorts of things would you like to train your dog to do?
Basic commands the most, any additional would be great but not fully necessary. I would like to take it with me to public parks and maybe into dog friendly stores without too much trouble.
6) Do you want to compete with your dog in a sport (e.g. agility, obedience, rally) or use your dog for a form of work (e.g. hunting, herding, livestock guarding)? If so, how much experience do you have with this work/sport?
Im trying to stay away from hard working breeds as Im hoping for lower physical needs.
Care Commitments
7) How long do you want to devote to training, playing with, or otherwise interacting with your dog each day?
I am a stay at home mom so the dog would almost always be with me besides maybe a day trip to theme parks (we’re local so it’s like a day at the beach to us) and like grocery shopping. I also have a pretty chill currently four year old who loves playing with small dogs from extended family. I would like to devote a decent amount of time to training because I’ve had bad experiences with untrained dogs from people close to me and I really want to avoid that. I don’t have ridiculously high standards but I hate jumpy/super loud around other people. I understand hesitation from visitors but the ability to regulate that in a decent amount of time would be great.
8) How long can you exercise your dog each day, on average? What sorts of exercise are you planning to give your dog regularly and does that include using a dog park?
Several walks during the day around our complex at minimum but likely lots of stimulation at home. I’m a bit of a home body but hoping dog’s needs can help me get out more. We have a close dog park so probably not every day but 2-3 times a week for a good longer play outside time.
9) How much regular brushing are you willing to do? Are you open to trimming hair, cleaning ears, or doing other grooming at home? If not, would you be willing to pay a professional to do it regularly?
I don’t mind brushing at all, almost find it relaxing, but I’d like a lower needs beyond that. I know a lot of small dogs need regular grooming and I’d likely take it in for grooming but hoping not to have to do that often.
Personal Preferences
10) What size dog are you looking for?
Pretty small. Not as small as like a cat but maybe midway between that and a medium dog.
11) How much shedding, barking, and slobber can you handle?
Prefer to avoid slobber but don’t mind some shedding. I grew up with cats so I’m no stranger to that. I’d prefer a dog I could train not to bark a ton. I don’t mind some reactive but yappy is a turn off.
12) How important is being able to let your dog off-leash in an unfenced area?
No preference
Dog Personality and Behavior
13) Do you want a snuggly dog or one that prefers some personal space?
Cuddly for sure
14) Would you prefer a dog that wants to do its own thing or one that’s more eager-to-please?
I prefer eager to please but don’t mind a little independence
15) How would you prefer your dog to respond to someone knocking on the door or entering your yard? How would you prefer your dog to greet strangers or visitors?
I don’t mind a little barking but would like to try to train to be mild on command. Like to maybe sit and stay once the person is greeted. If they’re familiar I don’t mind some excitement but ideally I’d love to not have a major freak out at any knock.
16) Are you willing to manage a dog that is aggressive to other dogs?
I’m not around other dogs often but being a first time pet owner I think it would be wise to avoid.
17) Are there any other behaviors you can’t deal with or want to avoid?
The biggest for me are jumpy/yappy. I know dogs are dogs and dogs are their own people so I expect a personally but not being aggressive or destructive are ideal.
18) How often and how long will the dog be left alone?
Very rarely. MAYBE for a day trip once a week. I’d hope to take the dog with whenever possible/socially acceptable in places. I have close family that takes their small dog on vacations and while I don’t go on them often I plan to try to do the same.
19) What are the dog-related preferences of other people in the house and what will be their involvement in caring for the dog?
My husband is a big dog person so I expect him to be very open but training is a must. My daughter is very good around animals so needs are low there. She’s very good at leaving animals alone if asked/explained but I’d love to be able to call the dog back to me if need be.
20) Do you have other pets or are you planning on having other pets? What breed or type of animal are they?
I have one cat who is the chillest dude. He’s not had a problem with people or pets he’s been around. The only issues I’ve ever had with him was taking a cat in a very sudden very temporary basis rescued from neglect and that cat was very territorial but my guy wanted to be friends.
21) Will the dog be interacting with children regularly?
I do not plan to have any more kids so mainly just my daughter who will be 5-6 around the time I plan to get the dog.
22) Do you rent or plan to rent in the future? If applicable, what breed or weight restrictions are on your current lease?
I rent and I believe there is a weight restriction but it isn’t enforced, I’ve seen VERY big dogs from neighbors. I plan to get a small dog regardless so I doubt it’ll matter. It’ll just be an extra $15/mo for pet rent (so it’ll have to get a small part time job to cover its portion of the rent 😂)
23) What city or country do you live in and are you aware of any laws banning certain breeds?
I’m in the Orlando area and I don’t think any major breeds are banned
24) What is the average temperature of a typical summer and winter day where you live?
Definitely on the hotter side
Additional Information and Questions
25) Please provide any additional information you feel may be relevant.
I have anxiety and bipolar disorder but am quite stable on medication but I’m hoping for a dog that is somewhat forgiving if we have to skip the longer walk for a day or so. I’d love to have a psychiatric service animal but I don’t think I have the resources nor the finances. I have a friend who’s dog is not fully service trained but generally makes the circle while walking in public and it’s so helpful/reliving walking with her so if at all possible it would be pretty cool to attempt this.
I know a dog is a lot more work than a cat and especially a puppy but I’m looking to take that on and I’ve had an infant so I know about being on the clock. I am also a tiny bit picky about looks being honest. I don’t really like the look of a classic chihuahua but have loved mixes like some chi/mini dachshunds as the psychical traits like fur type/colopattern is a little more unique from what I’ve seen. I don’t like pugs or French bulldogs, I just want something a little softer and don’t love the smooshed face. I’ve seen some mixes with bigger dogs but I don’t really know how any of that works/is. Being that I plan to rescue I browse Petfinder often so it’s just ones I’ve come across.
26) Feel free to ask any questions below.

2023.05.28 12:00 ChuanningTatum 27M Thailand 31st May - 9th July

Hi there! Had a successful travel meet up the previous time I posted on this subreddit, so I'm back for round 2! 27M Singapore/USA, have lived in Singapore/London/New York for work and studies! I speak english/mandarin/enough french to order a baguette and not get laughed at. I'll be based in Bangkok for a month minimum (up to 2) working at an international organization, and am also planning travels to a few places. Koh Tao (9th June - when the diving school provides confirmation): I have my mind set on obtaining an Open Water Diving License (and possibly an Advanced OW too, if time and schedules permit). Also planning to visit Koh Samui and Koh Phangan since they're nearby; the next FMP on Koh Phangan is on July 2nd. Chiang Mai (15th June - ): Krabi (24th June - ): The Maya Bay Sleep Aboard in Koh Phi Phi has been calling my name for a bit! Also travelling to Koh Lanta Khao Yai National Park (19th June -, am checking out car rentals right now): Great option to get fresh air that isn't visibly blackened by capitalism (sorry Bangkok) Feel free to drop a DM if you're interested! Dates can possibly be swapped around depending on location. Will also pay in Khao Soi and Singha if anyone has advice for dive schools in Koh Tao.

2023.05.28 11:45 luna_wolf8 French bulldog allergic to different meats - there seems to be a lot of dog food brands linked to canine heart disease. What do I feed him?

My one year old French bulldog seems to be allergic to chicken and pork. I say this because he gets hives after eating these meats almost immediately. It is very difficult to eliminate foods from his diet to figure out what he could be allergic to because I have 3 toddlers (multiples) who drop food on the floor constantly and 2 older kids who’s chore is cleaning up dinner but they rarely do it properly. We put our frenchie away during dinner time but he will lick the booster seats and sniff every inch of the rug under the table to find a piece of food.
Every brand of dog food I get (taste of the wild, zignature, purina pro plan, etc..) seems to be linked to heart disease and even if it says no chicken in the ingredients, I know they cross-contaminate.
I was hoping someone here could advise me on a dog food brand and flavor for him because researching this and finding hundreds of different answers is giving me a head ache. His vet recommended salmon purina pro plan but he still broke out in hives (that may have been from something my toddlers dropped though). Currently, he’s eating kangaroo flavor from Zignature and I drizzle salmon oil on top of it, and even though he doesn’t have hives, he still licks his paws constantly and has an odd smell coming from him somewhere. This smell just started a few days ago when we gave him this food so I’m unsure if it’s related or just a coincidence. It’s not him passing gas or needing a bath, it’s a different kind of smell but when I try to locate it, I can’t. He doesn’t act like he’s uncomfortable (meaning he is still very playful and his usual self) and he doesn’t scratch more than the usual dog but the paw licking and hives must be irritating him

2023.05.28 10:44 Alexi_Apples My dream job involves travel, what's possible?

I don't have a college degree but I got very lucky working as a B2B customer service agent (first job) where the temp officer who hired me suggested I apply for his job at his office (he was leaving and believed I would be great at it). I did and got the job. I became a recruiter and then labor mediator for a non profit making good money.
I'm forever grateful for the opportunities I've received to prove myself without finishing college. However, I feel like I could do more. I just don't know where to look.
I love to travel, I have no responsibilities (no boyfriend, no pets,...) so can go at the drop of a hat, I have great communication skills (reading, writing, public speaking), I speak 3 languages fluently (Dutch, French and English) and can help myself in more (German, Spanish...), I'm creative, I love to thinking out of the box and solve "problems", I can sell anything, I'm great at convincing people, especially if I'm convinced, I'm great at organizing, I'm super flexible (as in throw away your plans and do something completely different), I work best under some pressure,...
So where can I go? What job that requires at least some travel (preferably a lot) could suit me?

Thinking of getting TTMIK premium when it’s on sale but only plan on using the audio courses such as 이야기 and 비빔챗 etc because only half of the course for 비빔챗 is on Spotify/YouTube and the rest aren’t and I find the discussions interesting.
Am I able to download the mp3/pdf transcript files if I get premium? If i can’t, I guess it’s not worth it for me..

2023.05.28 09:37 Healthy-Swimmer-129 Shared Parental Leave - what did you do and how did you figure out this bureaucratic cat's cradle!?

Hi all, I'm very early still - like 6 weeks - but my partner and I are both expats without any family on this island, and we're wanting to ensure we set up our parental leave in such a way to minimise our stress and exhaustion, maximize my wellbeing (I worry about PPD), and maximize bonding time for both of us. We are pretty committed to both of us taking 6 months off. Equality/equity in our future parenting is a value of ours, and we're learning a lot about the many logistics that go into this from a great book: The Equal Parent, Paul Morgan-Bentley.
How are others setting up their parental leave? Or did you, if you're postpartum? I'd particularly appreciate hearing from those who split parental leave with their partners as evenly as they could - either at the same time, staggered, consecutive etc. What were your experiences? What reactions did you have to navigate, if any?
Also, anyone out there with multiple jobs? I have two employment contracts, so am trying to figure out if it makes sense to go on extended leave with one, but return to the other (more flexible, lower hours, and WFH) job 6 weeks postB, while my partner is on full leave. Part of the thinking here is factoring pay into things - my partner's salary is significantly higher than mine, so we want to think through how to try and bypass potentially sexist company policy that wouldn't allow him to be recognised as the 'primary caregiver' - which might be helped by my working part-time while he's off. If we can avoid him going on 5 months unpaid leave that would be ideal for budget.
So complicated!
We've read a number of resources, beyond our employment contracts:
With all this fun bureaucratic complexity, I'd love to just hire someone who understands all of this and has mind for the ins and outs of employment contracts for a few hours to help us think through, and sort a sensible plan. Does someone like this exist?
Thanks for any insight, and sharing your experience!

2023.05.28 09:29 Vanguard_CK3 [Event] Minister of Tourism welcomes Local and Foreign delegations

A meeting was held in the Capital City which wad hosted by the Ministry of Tourism, in the presence of local leaders, religious scholars and CEO of the tourist promotion council, where they were able to discuss the possibility of investing in a bunch of tourist attraction sites and activating the role of the council in tourist investment in the country. The meeting presented several tourist investment opportunities in the governorate and plans to carry out a number of tourist projects and identify a number of investment and tourist attraction sites in both coastal and interior.
During the meeting, the Sheikh of Socotra in particular demonstrated his willingnes to cooperate in order to achieve such projects which contribute in the development of tourist infrastructure for the governorate and create new jobs opportunities on the undiscovered island. Socotra will be set up as a destination for adventurers, banking on the pristine waters for big game fishing attracting anglers worldwide, as well as nature lovers wishing to travel and hike in the mountainous terrain to immerse themselves in the nature spotted by dragon blood trees.
The tourist promotion council's CEO also indicated to investment projects that the ways of its funding have been looked for through international organizations that are interested in environment protection and historical sites protection.
He showed also that these projects include construction of tourist projects, recreational parks and tourist gardens as well as visitors services, participation in taking advantage of green areas, developing them and achieving tourist development in the governorate which in turn benefit the national economy.
International humanitarians are also welcome to contribute by charity Tourism, which gives them a unique experience to make a meaningful impact and build life long connections with Yemen and the people. Volunteers participating in charity tourism programs in Yemen can engage in a range of activities. They may assist in building schools or healthcare facilities, teaching local children, organizing community events, supporting sustainable agriculture projects, or participating in environmental conservation initiatives. These efforts aim to improve the lives of local communities and contribute to the overall development of Yemen.
Food and Travel vloggers were also invited by the Ministry of Tourism in exchange for producing positive content to advertise Yemen and Kickstart the season. Some notable examples include Drew Binksy, Nas Daily, Kristen Sarah, Khalid al Ameri, and Trevor James. Yemen is well known having mystical connection to the coffee bean, true coffee-addicts can now trace the bean back to its original source. It also is famous for its honey, as the Yemeni honey is highly regarded, and is considered as Prophetic Medicine due to the Islamic Prophet Mohammed expressing his love for it.
Yemen is also home to many islamic and pre-islamic sites. Multiple renovation and long-term maintenance projects have been awarded to local contractors who are able to provide their best services in expanding the current facilities and accomodate more people in the sites. Ancient cities containing historical sites such as Sana'a, Sa'dah, Ma'rib, Taizz, and Shibam have all been considered as significant areas which require most attention towards renovation efforts.
The Ministry of Tourism in collaboration with the Council of Religious Scholars will also be carrying out efforts to restore, maintain and expand on the tourist capacity of Masjid al Saleh, Masjid al Jawf, Jami al Tarim, al Qubba al Khadra, and the Shrines associated with Imams, Saints, and Prophets. Religious Scholars and Renowned speakers of the Sufi world such as Habib Ali al Jifri, Hamza Yusuf, and Sheikh Imran Hossein have also been invited to give sermons to their fellow Sunnis in the Emirates of Aden & Emirates of Hadhramut.
Long term plans have been set with French Companies such as AccorHotels representing Sofitel, Ibis, Pullman as well as LouvreHotel Group owning the brands of Golden Tulip are invited to establush their brands in the prime real estate locations throughout the major cities and tourist hotspots. However in order to accomodate the influx of tourists for this season, the Minister has encouraged local owners of buildings to register for permits to being in renovating properties into Hostels, Low-budget hotels, and budget friendly accommodation.
Travellers abroad are also made aware that Yemen is a relatively dry country, so getting booze could be an issue. Although no alcohol products are allowed to enter the country, upon landing only non-muslims will be able to purchase alcohol from Aden Airport Duty Free. Non-muslims can also obtain permits for purchase and consumption of alcohol and can only purchase them within Aden city, from the various bulk stores. [S] black market for booze also exists ofcourse, whether it is the street or the diplomatic quarters where low level embassy staff have been stock on drinks and selling them through the back door. The authorities in Sana'a and Aden will be tolerating this as long as the officers guarantee a cut from the trade. For now, it seems that staff at the Romanian embassy is dominating this market. [/S]

2023.05.28 09:08 kluz885 Massive improvements from Estrogen (E2) gel/injections and hops

TLDR and my log is at the end.
Hi all just wanted to share my breakthrough regimen that has resulted in excellent improvements in sexual function as well as some improvement in the anhedonia category. The anhedonia i believe is not caused by PSSD or it had very little to do with it. Regardless, it does seem to have improved mostly the feeling of being able to connect with females. I was targeting sexual function improvements. I took a combination of E2 injections, E2 gel and hops supplement. Everything else had been stable for a minimum of 6 months. Attached a document below that i recorded my trial on. It's now been a month+ since i last used E2 and very rarely do i take hops anymore. Improvements have stuck and seem to be getting better. Big improvements in erection quality, sensitivity and less so in libido.

I'll try to quantify the improvements but its difficult. As always things will fluctuate based on other factors like sleep, attractiveness of girl, mood that day, stress etc. The "Before" will be my baseline which was a combination of various supplements and medications. The heavy hitters are TRT (~125mg/week split into 2 doses Monday and Thursday), bromantane, NA Semax, selegiline in no particular order. Viagra is often used before sex as well. After my E2 trial i no longer need viagra all the time. Normally I am having sex almost daily which can be a bit taxing on the body i think. The sensitivity improvements are problematic on occasion. It becomes difficult to continue to have sex and i have to use tricks and techniques to not cum too quickly. I dont wish to try E2 again for the time being as the increased sensitivity causes issues.
The lower the score the worse it is. 1/10 sensitivity would be near total genital numbness and no pleasure.10/10 would be pre-PSSD levels for me that align with the best I've felt in my life in that area. It's not the most scientific approach if anyone has a proper form to fill out for recovery I could give it a go.
Erection quality (being able to get an erection and maintain it during sex) 5/10
Libido - 3/10
Sensitivity - 5/10
Anhedonia - 7/10
Refractory Period - 1 day (assuming having sex daily)
Erection quality (being able to get an erection and maintain it during sex) 8/10
Libido - 5/10
Sensitivity - 8/10
Anhedonia - 8/10
Refractory Period - Varies, limited data. 1-2 hours has been possible on several occasions so far. Definite improvement

A big thanks to u/Sweaty_Literature_69 (Spyros) for sharing his theory
TLDR: Took E2 injections/gel and hops and got big improvements in sexual function across the board that have stuck for a month+

Just applied 1.25g (0.75mg of 17 β estradiol) gel to test the waters about 40 minutes ago. will see if there's any effects i wont be doing a proper trial (following sweaty's pdf) because there's too many restrictions. will try with the gel for now and then move to injections later perhaps Some background: Ive been on trt for 2-3 years already. I've had PSSD for ~3 years from prozac (fluoxetine). Ive tried many things to see what will work for me. I would say I experienced a 30-40% improvement from baseline with my current regimen. The best window I ever had was my initial dose of proviron which prompted me to give this theory a shot. This lasted 2 days or so. I felt like a God every aspect was improved. It wasn't a manic phase though. Current regimen (the heavy hitters): TRT ~125mg/week No HCG NA Semax 300-600mcg/day Bromantane varying dosages Selegiline 1.25mg/day sublingual Various other supplements that I dont think matter all that much. Sexmas, Bromantane, Selegiline were all added individually after 1-2month minimum baseline was established. (edited)

Update 1: Roughly 5 hours since gel application. Had a little surge in genital/skin sensitivity around the 1 hour mark. Feel like i am beginning to retain water and blood pressure going up a bit. Nothing uncomfortable but its noticeable. Better sense of well being around the 2-3 hour mark which has faded. No other side effects or improvements to note. (edited)

Still can feel a range of emotions but im mostly in the middle not many ups and downs. Cognitive im fine. No changes there. Bromanatane and semax helped my cognitive aspects already. Still on those.

Final update 28/4/2023 – I have been on NAC+Sarcosine and around 900mg of hops per day. It has been 4 weeks since I began E2 or hops. Sensitivity improvements have stayed. Better erections, slightly more libido. Libido is still low otherwise I am very happy with my improvements.

More than two million calls to the DWP’s Future Pensions Centre helpline were blocked from entering the call waiting queue between January and May 2023
DWP Minister Laura Trott also confirmed that less than 50,000 calls were answered in each four-week period, despite earlier assurance that extra staff had been deployed to manage increased demand.
Court of Appeal ruled that Secretary of State’s practice of excluding claimants awaiting verification of national insurance number applications from advance payments of universal credit is unlawful
This case related to two claimants who made separate claims for UC, both seeking an advance payment pending approval of their claims. However, neither claimant had a national insurance number (NINo).
The Court of Appeal decision [2023] EWCA Civ 566
DWP sets out high-level strategy for evaluating and tracking the performance of the Health Transformation Programme
With reforms due to roll out nationally from 2029, the DWP has published its Health Transformation Programme evaluation strategy, in which it sets out how it plans to use a Theory of Change Logic Model to achieve the Programme's five key strategic outcomes -
DWP confirm who is taking part in the small-scale test of the digital PIP claim service
Following a written question by Sir Stephen Timms the DWP has confirmed:
"it is currently being offered to a small number of claimants who call the department to begin a new claim. Currently, we are offering the service to 60 claimants a day...
The following user groups are not currently in scope:
More than 100,000 universal credit households were subject to the minimum income floor in February 2023
Total number of households and proportion of all households with a self-employed claimant impacted by MIF have both more than doubled in the 12 months since March 2022.
Minister Guy Opperman confirmed on 24 May that in the most recent month for which data is available (February 2023) 111,000 households with one or more self-employed claimants were subject to the MIF (27 per cent of all households that included self-employed claimants).
Mr Opperman also provided figures for each month since March 2022, together with details of the number of individuals in households affected by the MIF.
Over half a million UC claimants sanctioned in a year for not attending interview
The latest statistics released by the DWP this month show that 541,000 universal credit (UC) claimants were sanctioned in the year to January 2023. The overwhelming majority of these, 530,000, were sanctioned for failing to attend or failing to participate in a mandatory interview.
The figures represent a very small fall from the peak sanction rate, but the number of claimants sanctioned is still more than double what it was pre-pandemic.

2023.05.28 08:36 TimiGL Career prospects in life sciences research and development (R&D) aimed at phasing out animal testing

Greetings everyone,
In the near future, I'll be moving to Switzerland to join my fiance and I'll soon be completing my PhD in life sciences, specializing in nanomedicine. As for career orientation, I want to focus on the advancement of technologies aimed at substituting animal testing.
I would greatly appreciate it if someone could provide me with information or direct me to resources regarding job opportunities or positions in this field within Switzerland. Since I don't currently speak German, French, or Italian, I understand that language proficiency is important in Switzerland. However, I plan to prioritize language learning once I complete my studies, so international groups or organizations would be particularly valuable to me.
Thank you!

2023.05.28 06:57 Da_boss_babie360 Chance Me!

Ok so I finished my sophomore year, and am looking to dip my feet into the college admissions process more. Was wondering if y'all had any advice to improve, and overall just what your thoughts are.
I'll be putting my projected GPA for 11th and 12th grade, and will be going more conservative in that regard. So I'm going to assume B's in smth like AP Lang or French IV, for example.

So the website I'm using is "" to calculate my unweighted and weighted gpa. Each semester represents a year. And yes, I'm expecting 12th grade to have such high gpa, since it's all gonna be lab sciences (except for 1 which is an advanced humanities course, i put a B+ for that once even though it's prob an easy A, incase it's a hard class)

I believe for an A+ the calculator gives 4.33, and for honors courses it gives +.5 instead of +1. Whatever tho.

Gender: Male
Race: Indian
School: competitive to highly competitive private school
State: CA
Income: a lot - don't know how much though since money talk banned at our house. But definitely enough where I won't be taking any loans or don't need any financial aid.
Intended Major(s): Electrical Engineering, Mechanical Engineering, Comp Sci, etc. (I initially was deciding between med and comp sci, but i kinda vibing with comp sci more both personally and in aptitude, etc.)

[Probably will have more awards like other physics competitions, hackathons, etc. This is all I can think of rn tho]

ECs (* Projected ECs):
Martial Arts for about 10 years. No I'm not a black belt, it's damn hard to get one. But the journey is so worth it. Killer essay about it ngl. (* belt before black by application season)
Paid intern at internationally recognized software company and will work on cool stuff (mama ima be famous)
Essentially started my school student council, led it for the past 2 years, definitely gonna hold the spot for the next cycles. Organized lots of events, and working to spread us on a more inter-school level. (Spent over 20 thousand dollars to make small children eat pizza. Fun. me and my schoolmates the small children btw. School events are fun, especially when you head them)- This takes a lot of my time, but I think the payout will be huge : D
Started the STEM Tutoring Club. Regularly lead and teach there
* Starting an organization for student-student teaching.
* Also starting an organization for students to more easily volunteer for the community, making volunteering more accessible
< ^ Definitely going to continue these orgs even after high school>
* Research Paper on taking an IB final project topic from 2009-2010 that was used as our AP Calc Final Project, and expanding it using software to simulate stuff. Very cool. Teacher connecting me to researchers interested... o.o
Do cool hardware/software project and will write a paper on it. I don't really want to say too much on that, but it'll be hella cool.

Hooks: Anti-hook - I'm indian.

LOR: Old Math Teacher and future physics wrote a killer one (I heard) for my internship. Current Math Teacher taught for longer than my life, 3 times over, and said I was one of her brightest students. She gave a great one apperantly for internship as well. One of our admins who heads Clubs and Activities is a lso a very holistic person, and I can confidently say the letter she can write to colleges (like she already did, again, to the internship) will be comprehensive and stuff. Confident they'll write pog things for college.
I also have an interesting relationship with my english teacher. Taught me since 7th garde, knows how I've grown in an area I'm pretty bad in. And he's an english teacher.
Chancing LORs aren't rlly reliable tho, so i'll give my chancing for LOR as "above average"

List: T25, Georgia Tech as an out-of-state, UC Berkely/LA, yk the usual. UCLA would be pretty fun to get into. UT Austin is also on the table definitely since I like the place.

Idk I don't like spending my life running on the tails of colleges, I want to develop as a person and have a strong connection with my fam. So I probably won't do crazy things that take too much of my time. Most of my effort is gonna be martial arts, the fam, me and the boys, and learning to cook lol.

Essays: Probably will write em well. I have some unique ideas with my crazy life experiences lol. Drafted some and have good feedback.
