why do you think tumblr has died out? like ik it's not completely dead, but it is compared to let's say 7 years ago.

I think the primary reason tumblr became irrelevant is due to their business decision to remove all porn. Several years most of the tumblr accounts were dedicated to porn which resulted in a demand for their services.
Personally, I decided to delete my tumblr account, which was where I had posted over 200 original poems, because they changed my password and I could no longer perform edit functions. After unsuccessfully reaching out to tumblr to correct the problem, I got frustrated and deleted my account and along with it over 400 followers. I will never use tumblr again.
And to be honest, I am very close to leaving askfm. Why?
Because askfm used to be fun when it was mostly used for questions and answers, but it seems now it has become a dating application where many people are looking for a partner or some type of long term relationship which I have no interest in
I have been looking for a social network dedicated to writers, but most require a monthly subscription fee which I am not willing to pay for. So I think what I will try doing with askfm is sending more anonymous questions to avoid the Woke Cowards from constantly reporting my account as "hate speech" which I am not only frustrated with but totally bored with. So ya, my days hanging around askfm are coming to and end. Freedom of speech no longer exists in America.

I read on an international news website that due to extreme heat, asphalt in UK has melted and rail services have stopped. The weather surpassed 42C. This is awful :-( Hope you guys stay safe!!

Thankfully it has cooled down quite a fair bit.
Trains were delayed and cancelled any way before the heat wave due to strikes. But yeah, the roads were melting lol
There weren't any issues by me thankfully! So I've been fine. I know London has had it bad with fires etc

Do you think inflation is a game played by the governments? Why do you think prices are going up and do you think things will get better?

"Inflation" by Alex
What a great question and one that I often think about. It seems to me that inflation is caused when governments intentionally print too much money which results in more consumer demand for fewer goods or services. For example, let's assume that there are 10 apples and ten potential customers each with one dollar. The ratio of supply to demand would be 1:1 and in this case, inflation would remain stable because each consumer would have the ability to purchase one apple. Inflation occurs whenever purchasing power or demand exceeds available goods or services. So, in our next example, we still have 10 apples however, we now have 100 potential customers with the potential ($$$) to purchase those 10 apples and since the demand exceeds the supply, inflation occurs causing the price of the 10 apples to increase.
I remember an old quote from high school that went like this: “Value is not determined by those who set the price. Value is determined by those who choose to pay it.” In America, our government has been printing trillions of dollars which means that millions more consumers have access to money. And since governments control the money supply, it is the governments fault when inflation occurs. Our president and his advisors are so incompetent that they blame the retailers and manufacturers for inflation. That is complete nonsense!
Will things get better? Things will improve when American voters get angry enough and informed enough to elect politicians who are competent and who understand economics, capitalism and will create legislation that results in common sense laws, free and fair markets, reasonable taxes, investments in research and development for such things as renewable energy, efficient transportation, support of free speech where the individual is rewarded for their efforts and... the rejection of this insane ideology of "equal outcomes." We must have a government that encourages productivity through hard work, persistence, self discipline, self reliance and most of all, our society needs a system of governance that reward individuals based upon merit. Our government must be held to account though term limits, prosecution of crimes such as insider trading and an end to the progressive liberal ideology of group identity, woke cancel culture, victimhood, globalization and it's goal to create a One World Government.
Will these things occur? I doubt it. The corruption is so great and it seems that integrity no longer exists within government or amongst it's citizens. Most government officials are influenced by lobbyists and other nefarious characters who only care about enriching themselves. We can see the damage being wrought by this insatiable greed and unmitigated corruption by the ruling class, media and political class.
I fear a third world war is on the horizon that will make WWI and WWII look like a picnic. My prediction, our world is about to see what hell looks like.

This is what a "heart attack" aka ST elevation Myocardial Infarction (STeMI) looks like.
This is from one of my pts we transported last week I believe.
Adult male w worsening chest pain over 3 days came in to a local Emergency Department & was found to be experiencing 8/10 crushing chest pain with radiating pain down their arm. Their EKG showed elevation of their ST segment multiple contiguous leads indicating an acute Myocardial Infarction was occurring.
Injury leads to Ischemia (inadequate blood flow) which becomes an Infarction (complete loss of blood supply). So a STeMI refers to the part of an EKG known as the ST segment being elevated (which indicates the presence of an infarct) & Myocardial meaning "heart (card) muscle (myo)" & the aforementioned Infarction or tissue death.
This is bc an nSTeMI exists or Non-ST elevation Myocardial Infarction. This is a partial blockage or ischemia of the heart but not yet an infarct.
This is a pic of our pt's heart & the coronary arteries that provide blood to the heart muscles (myocardium). A heart attack or MI is the reduction or complete cessation of blood flow through one or more of these vessels causing injury or infarct to the downstream & surrounding tissue.
You can see the dye that was pushed into the coronary arteries & where it goes from dark to light & then back to dark. That is the actual blockage of the artery. In this case I believe it was the Left Anterior Descending Artery of the Left Main Coronary Artery.
And that is why you should take care of your health, take chest pain seriously, & call 911/local Emergency services for help if you think you are having a heart attack.
Remember: heart attacks can present differently between men & women.
Males present w the well know "crushing" chest pain or describe it as an "elephant" on their chest with radiating pain to their jaw and/or arm. This pain does NOT get better w rest/antacids.
Women: indigestion, back pain, jaw pain, chest discomfort

Mostly I am playing my guitar and singing at several church services in the area. One of the choirs my wife sings and my daughter plays violin. In our family, Sunday is a family day where we celebrate our God and lord Jesus Christ through prayer, music and fellowship, while giving thanks for our many blessings.

Let's see.. pros and cons of dating you?

alpharean’s Profile PhotoChatter Box
Pros:
1) I'm someone who enjoys/appreciates communications, in good and bad times.
2) I love giving. Not just buying things for her, but simpler things like letters etc.
3) I'm brand new. Virgin. Lmao.
4) I only date to marry.
5) I live by a code, STRONGLY. This includes being faithful, as far as not going out to meet with other females friends. And if there's a group outing with females in it, honesty is my policy.
6) Very respectful.
7) There's no needa fear I'm fooling around. I'm as good as having her name tatted on my forehead.
8) I can do without being all touchy, good for those who prefers to keep it that way, until marriage. After all, that's also my reason for staying a virgin.
Cons:
1) I'm not good looking.
2) There are certain things which I can't do due to anxiety.
3) I'm shy, so it may be a challenge to have me (or to have me act a certain way she would want me to) around her family, relatives and friends. So I can be socially awkward.
4) I'm not sure about the future me in a life with a partner, but the current single me occasionally goes through episodes of depression. If and when this happens.. I'm sorry. All I need is assurance, encouragement, or sometimes validation.
5) I'm not for those who wants/needs sex (before marriage) for us to work. Try your best u may, u still won't break me. Most I can do is hold hands and hi-bye hugs.
6) I'm also not into drinking (and drug abuse) and clubbing/partying, and also do not wish to date someone with such lifestyle.
Things to take note:
1) I am actually different from what my appearance may suggest. I swear people who know me can vouch for this.
2) I intend to retire this image before marriage. So don't let this image push u away, and for some, don't fall in love with this image of mine.
3) Love language that I give: Acts of services and Words of affirmation.
4) Love language that I appreciate: Words of affirmation. Simple man.

What are the disadvantages of social media?

Addiction to the expense of daily duties in life.
Isolation from the immediate community, such as parents and neighbors.
Being dragged behind pornographic cultures intentionally or unintentionally.
Spreading some subversive ideas.
A forum for criminals to implement their plans.
Violation of an individual’s privacy, by multiple means, most of which are readily available.
Encouraging lies and hypocrisy, through the phenomenon of pseudonyms and phantom characters, especially in the various forms of conversation services, Where the owners deal with multiple personalities and many aspects, is mostly sacrificed values and ethics and constants at the expense of fancy jokes, and tampering with the feelings of people.

Is there like a dress code in church? Like do you have to wear formal dresses and shoes

There is no dress code in the churches I attend (except for musicians and choir members). Wearing levi's or sneakers is accepted as are members of the LGBTQ community, the homeless, the disabled and all minorities. The services that I perform at focus on the teachings of Christ and the practical applications of those teachings. The church does not condone or encourage hate, division, racism, homophobia or misogyny, etc. Instead, the uniqueness of each individual, our differences and shared humanity are celebrated. For example, I am a heterosexual, but I respect the rights of alternative lifestyles and people to make their own personal decisions as long as they do not hurt other people in the process.
I understand that religions have made many mistakes in the past and will continue to make mistakes in the future, because we are human; but, in my opinion, the churches that I belong to (Catholic and Unity) are accepting of all people and they try their best through education and various charitable ministries to make the world we live in a better and more hospitable place for all.

Je viens d'apprendre qu'une de mes vieilles potes, a fait plusieurs voyages à Dubaï donc là je l'ai zappé, et elle ne comprend pas pourquoi j'ai pris mes distances, et veux que l'on s'explique.

Nous sommes d'accord... Le voyage à Dubaï devrait être sans retour... Je ne veux pas de cette racaille en france... Sans même considérer les questions de services douteux...

Ugh that sucks, I had the same experience but with a therapist before and in the end I had to ghost him

that's basically what i did. i talked to my therapist about that psychiatrist, and my therapist suggested that i send that person a very brief but strongly worded email basically telling her that i was fine, i was not satisfied with her services, and i already had another doctor.
after that, she left me alone. but since that happened, i heard a bunch of horrible things about her that she did to her other clients, so i'm glad i got out of there. ugh.

🥼 Should a medical worker be entitled to provide medical treatment to a child if parents decide not to?

Ideally we cannot force but persuade/advise the parents of the child to go for treatment as it is our job as healthcare workers to ensure your life is not at risk and help alongside with professional advisers. However in some circumstances if the treatment is extremely critical and the parents are putting their child at risk we do have to report to social services etc. We try to avoid this as possible, but we cannot provide medical treatment without consent unless given with a warrant.

Do you think policemen, nurses and teachers in public institutions should beneficiate from discounts on food, bills, etc?

I can only answer from my point of view. I work for a charity which bids for NHS contracts and previous worked in the public sector for 10 years. The pay is certainly not great, especially at lower levels, and unlike for-profit business the budget cuts from government have a direct impact on the services provided and on job security and stress. Many working in my area, mental health, burn out due to long hours, tough shifts and really emotionally demanding work with high levels of responsibly for low pay compared to private sector jobs. So yes, I do think that failing a decent pay increase we should get whatever discount on food or bill's we can get our hands on!

What is an adult problem you were not prepared for? 🌚

SAAD.
in addition to the cost of dentist services (I think no one is ready for this), I was not ready for emotional feelings - we simply do not talk about this to children. As it turned out, not only me, many of my friends noticed it too.
if children's emotions pass quickly, then in adulthood they can stay long enough and deeply. For example, a couple of years ago I began to earn more or less decently and bought literally everything I wanted - things, hobbies, travel, goodies - almost always I could not physically eat so much, but most of the time I was happy. Just because now I can buy it. Last year I didn't want anything at all, I didn't buy myself a single thing, the roomie made me eat once a week. Children don't know how to tоrture themselves like that. And you can't just go to sleep like before and be happy tomorrow, you have to make an effort. Now I am experiencing a feeling of hope for the second month. No reason, just a general feeling.

When you've applied for jobs in the past, how has it been for you to write resumes, personal letters etc.? 📄

TobbeAsks’s Profile PhotoTobbe
I've used my university's career services and my mentor helped me with my resume and how to write a cover letter. I'm grateful for good resources. Also, I have found YouTube to be a great resource for job interview preparation and resume help. Job searching can be tough. It's definitely time-consuming to tailor your resume and cover letter for each position.

Do you prefer Netflix or YouTube?

klarens86650’s Profile Photoklarens
I watch content from both, at about an equal rate...and that content is completely different, therefore not really comparable.
YouTube, for me, is a way to watch various art & crafting processes, or fly-on-the-wall participation in tabletop or video gaming, or reviews & reactions to movies, tv shows & music.
Netflix is just a premium streaming service with lots of money to put into producing/buying rights to scripted TV & movies.
Using them in tandem, along with other streaming services & independently shot video resources is the only way to go, for a media junkie.

What did you do for living?

I am a self-employed day trader (investor / speculator) and I earn a few shekels from consulting and providing other useful services based on previous work experience which I do not discuss publicly. Occasionally, I also build / maintain high-end PCs and gaming rigs, but that's more of a hobby whenever my schedule permits.

No one ever misses you, they just miss the services that once you provided them. They are doing something and suddenly remember that once upon a time it was you who used to help them out, when they are sad they miss the care they used to get, a shoulder they used for comfort, they miss the listener with whom they used to share, they miss the hands they had while walking, they miss the words. Your name is attached to your services, your name is just remembered as a service provider, and they remember you when there is any need for services again. The time they get any other one, providing these services better than you, BOOM you are not even on the list, you are not even remembered. The only time they remember you again is when their 1st, 2nd, 3rd and all of the providers stop proving them what they need 🤞🏻

Is an escort agency employee who becomes pregnant in the course of providing a paid service, entitled to claim maintenance from the child's biological father who previously paid for the escort service?

KubaGR571’s Profile PhotoKubaGR571
In Poland, such institutions are called "Escort Agencies", while in Western Europe such institutions are called "Brothels". In the usual case, the customer would not be liable as the person providing the sexual service should be secured. The case would be completely different if the client was a man of high prestige, for example a bishop, a famous politician or someone from the royal family using the services of a prostitute. In such a case, the matter would be publicized in the media, and the man would lose his reputation through the scandal. It would be more profitable for a man to pay a huge amount of money than to expose this incident to the whole world

Think NHS pre-covid. Do you think the NHS is overdue stepping up with its mental healthcare?

Phenix0x’s Profile PhotoNightfury
Absolutely! I have been saying that for years. It has been given nowhere near enough funds for the amount of people that are needing the services. There isn't enough staff to increase the amount of patients that are seen and even when you are seen, staff are so rushed off their feet that they aren't providing the best care possible for the patients that they do have. I think it is especially prominent in the child/adolescent services, they were the worst for me and I don't know anyone else who had a good experience with them either. Being told to have a cup of tea or snap an elastic band on your wrist are not going to fix self destructive urges or stop someone from hearing voices

how can one pursue freedom/goals if one is struggling to pay for housing/with health issues/basic needs? why would anyone begrudge a fellow citizen having these things? yet laud billionaires who exploit their employees (Hi Bezos) & swoon when they make a charity donation equivalent to $20 from me?

> how can one pursue freedom/goals if one is struggling to pay for housing/with health issues/basic needs?
The same way that my family did: hard work and sacrifices. Is it too much to ask people to fend for themselves and be responsible? They will never break the cycle of dependency if they refuse to help themselves. This shouldn't be difficult to comprehend but unfortunately, some people fail to grasp a very simple concept...
> why would anyone begrudge a fellow citizen having these things?
In the first place, resources are finite and they have value. Services cost money. Nothing is "free." Secondly, I am not responsible for the entire world. If or when I choose to help others, it is on a voluntary basis - as it should be. Lastly, encouraging others to mooch off society creates a lazy underclass of entitled / unproductive / ungrateful parasites. It is one thing if a person can't earn a living due to health problems, disabilities or something of that nature - quite another if a person is able to be productive but *chooses* not to be.
> yet laud billionaires who exploit their employees (Hi Bezos)
I didn't "laud" Bezos. In fact, I made a point of criticizing him specifically and others like him. I mentioned several names and I barely scratched the surface...
> & swoon when they make a charity donation equivalent to $20 from me?
I also made a point of criticizing their BS "charities" and "foundations."

Sewing.
My mother's first education is a seamstress. I like the idea of bringing projects to life.
I like that you can create a 100% perfect thing.
I like to draw sketches, choose fabrics, work with a pattern. And when you see the result, you understand what it was all about!
Now I'm making a T-shirt out of a dress & I'm almost finished.
I would say that the ability to sew is a basic skill. I'm not saying that everyone needs to know how to sew a jacket, but the simplest sewing skills will allow you to do without the services of an atelier (this is especially true for me, because of my height I have to shorten almost all jeans/trousers).
This is a useful skill, you will be able to sew holes/seams, sew in zippers, change the length/width of the product, etc.

We’d do that instead of taxation. 🙂 People who hurt animals for fun, get their fingers chopped. 🙂 People who molest others, get beheaded publicly. 🙂 People who consume drugs, would be locked in recovery centres like jails. 🙂 Drug dealers will be shot at sight. 🙂
No stupid police required, everyone can have their personal weapon and use it for their safety. 🙂 Anyone who harms anyone to (oppress them or out of spite) will be made bankrupt. 🙂 and oh free ice cream, medical and educational services for everyone who lives their life without bothering any another, in anyway. 🥰

I do! I use Spotify and I use it a TON 😆 When I'm by myself I almost always listen to either music or podcasts. I can't remember the exact amount but on last year's Spotify wrapped I had a ridiculous amount of minutes clocked in, I've yet to talk with anyone who had more than me Haha
Do you use any music streaming services If so which one do you use

Haha that’s totally understandable! I’ll probably have the same thing in the future when there are new gadgets and other services. It’s jut what you’re used to and like to do! 😊

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
That is so true. It's not so much that we get lazy as that we get comfortable with our life and how we live it and do not see the necessity in changing what works for us and what makes us happy. Think of it this way: we mow our lawns the same way for years, we shop for food the same way, we communicate with our friends and family a certain way and we laugh, sing and love a certain way that makes us happy and those around us, right? So why change that which works and is successful? I just try to keep my life as simple as possible.
Thanks for taking the time to share in a meaningful conversation Yentl. Take care.

I really get your point, I’m against stealing from artists as well. Streaming services like Spotify, however, do pay artists for their music and you’re not able to download the music from Spotify onto your own devices, you’re only able to download the music in the app itself, for when you want to

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Yentl, that is great news. I know people who use Spotify and it is a great service for anyone who has unlimited internet bandwidth. I only pay for about 2G of bandwidth per month to keep my internet costs reasonable. But the other factor is that I am a baby boomer and psychologically I am used to owning all of the music I listen to. I know it sounds irrational (and probably is) but I am so use to purchasing albums, CD's and now mp3 files. The other unusual thing or habit I have is that I listen to the same musicians over and over that I have been listening to for 50 years. Though I will listen to some new music, mostly I enjoy Jazz from the 1950's and 60's and rock from the 60's through 90's along with classical music and most songs from the American Music Standards book.
The way I approach music is similar to the way I approach food. Once I find a food I enjoy, I keep eating it over and over again without ever getting tired of it. hahaha..... damn, am I lazy or what? ❤️

Do you use any music streaming services? If so, which one(s) do you use?

LunarHuntress’s Profile PhotoYentl
Hello Yentl.
No I do not use any music streaming services.
I prefer to purchase and download mp3 files that I own and can listen to independent of a reliable internet connection. Also, I like the idea that whenever I purchase music the composer and musicians get royalties. I have met many people who literally steal thousands of songs from the internet and are proud of their behavior. However, as a musician, I find that behavior to be unethical and criminal, and that is why I do not support it under any circumstance.
It seems that in every profession (doctor, lawyer, teacher, plumber, electrician, etc) people expect to get paid a fair wage. But when is involves musicians, too many people believe that because the musicians are having fun and enjoying themselves, they do not deserve to get paid for having fun, right?
Do we apply the same logic to professional soccer players? No
Do we apply the logic to professional baseball players or doctors or automobile mechanics? No we do not.
And yet music that musicians compose and perform is stolen by thousands of people all across the world and then these same people claim that that stolen music is their favorite music and they would be upset if the band broke up and yet are perfectly content to not pay the musicians for their blood, sweat and tears.
People need to remember that most great musicians have studied privately for at least 10 years and have thousands of dollars invested in equipment, recording and travel expenses. Plus, great musicians have practiced for at least 10,000 hours before their audience hears them for the first time. And then to not get paid for their effort? That is a crime.
Sorry for the rant, but hopefully whomever reads this will understand that musicians perform music not simply because they love music, but also to earn a living. Ant other musicians out there who wish to comment on this post, please express your opinion on this issue and post it. Thanks.

Do you own your own business? If so how did you get into it?

Yes I do.
Growing up I've always had a definitive love for horses. Visiting barns on the weekends, riding recreationally and wishing I had a horse of my own was a common affair. It was not until my later years that I decided I wanted to work with horses full time. After attending show after show I was always in awe of the neat and tidy appearance of the horses. That is when I decided to get into grooming. Knowing it can be an arduous task for some horse owners, I provide my services to help check off one more chore from your list of 'To Do's.' Working gently yet efficiently and with exceptional attention to detail to get the job done is my top priority.
