2023.05.29 14:03 Zestyclose_Salary439 How do I earn our friendship back?

This is from years ago but the girl still goes to my school. I 12F and my best friend 13F were best friends in the beginning of the school year. She was really quiet and I was really talkative so we got along fine.
Since she wouldn’t give me her number she gave me her Snapchat. We I didn’t talk to anyone other than her on Snapchat but she was trolling this man who I called Pedo Lex Luther.
But anyway she add me and her friend to a group chat to troll him. The friend was the boy she really liked and met on Snapchat. He was 16M . I was really uncomfortable with the age gap cause my parents are 1 month apart. But I got his snap and we were sorta friends. He seemed like a nice guy.
My friend knew that the boy liked her but simply didn’t want to communicate her feelings. So I told him how she felt and they got together. A reason why I did that is because I thought they had known each other longer that I knew her. But no they met a month after we did.
I cried and realized that I was in love with my best friend. I was happy for her tho. But then one day my best friends boyfriend texted me saying “(my best friend) is mad at me and I don’t know why.” He asked me to not tell her that he brought me into this. I did anyway cause I wanted to help.
But I eventually nagged her enough to communicate with him. But I think she got him to remove me or he blocked me out of anger. After that our friendship kinda. Changed we didn’t talk as much she didn’t want to talk to me. She suddenly started leaving me on read.
I know she would never do that to her stupid boyfriend. Then she told me when I was talking to her I don’t care. That made me feel really sad. So that night I thought about it and decided to do it. We were officially no longer friends.
But I felt really sad. So I apologized she accepted. But the weekend of she removed me. For after setting a boundary I didn’t talk to her cause I was waiting for her to talk first. She doesn’t have any friends irl except for me. I have friends and a boyfriend now but everytime I think of her I become sad. Now I don’t know what to do to get her trust back.

2023.05.29 14:02 Joy-they-them about Gundam Schwarzette Suletta and Guel

ok so here is something I am confused about yall, I see a lot of people saying schwarzette is going to be Guels new mobile suit, but I dont buy it for 2 main reasons, fist Guel litterally just got an upgraded rebuild of the Darilbalde like 3 episodes ago, seems a bit of a wierd time for another upgrade dont you think? secondly Guel is not an enhanched human like suletta which means it would be litterally physically impossible for him to actually fully operate the schwarzette since he would be unable to use the permit score system at all, according to the wiki you actually need to have the permit system intigrated into your body to use it. I think Suletta is going to pilot the Schwarzette, she is the only enhanced pilot left in the school who be able to pilot the gundam. my prediction is that guel is going to be captured by shaddiq and suletta is going to have to use the Schwarzette to save both him and moirine

2023.05.29 14:02 Gumbybum Lore Discovery Part 3/3: Fishbones, Flatwoods, and Colonel's Dirty Little Secret

Disclaimer: This post is long, so you may want to save it and read it later. Also, I put a lot of time into both researching this and writing it up. So if all you have is negative feedback, kindly keep it to yourself. Finally, there’s a lot more that I’ve been looking into beyond the scope of this write-up. If you’d like to join my exp-LORE-ation efforts, please let me know.

Edit: I guess hyperlinks aren't working right now, so I'll have to manually paste those in.
Recap: Part 1 establishes that Colonel is the same kid who was playing with his “baer frends” at the Palace of the Winding Path. Part 2 establishes that Darius Angler was the author of the 4 Untitled Poems.
TLDR (mad spoilers up in here): Fishbones led the raid that killed Colonel and all the Responders in Flatwoods, and he could very well be Darius Angler’s brother. Colonel may have been up to something nefarious with the children of Flatwoods (but not in that way). Ra Ra might be Ward’s granddaughter. And it looks like mole rat teeth are used to craft Day Tripper.
We Begin at the End: November 2096. 13 Bridge Street, Flatwoods, WV. Responder Colonel died in the raider attack on Flatwoods, along with just about every other Responder that resided there. The raiders attacked because a Chem Addict stole all their food and chems and fled to Flatwoods. You can find her body and holotape just West of the river. But before we get to that, we need to look at what Colonel was up to before he died. Most people probably overlooked this detail because they haven’t explored Flatwoods since they were level 3, and at that point they didn’t have a jetpack or the Marsupial mutation. But Colonel’s front AND back porches are completely railed off. If you make it over the front railing, you’ll find the corpses of Colonel and (likely) the raider that killed him, Colonel’s second “Survivor Story,” and a stroller with an intact doll in it. Colonel was the “caregiver for children” in Flatwoods, so the stroller may have once been for an actual baby.
But on the back porch, Colonel was burning books, files, documents, and the contents of a mysterious duffel back on his grill. Colonel definitely had a secret and he was literally trying to burn the evidence. And that secret was his past with the Diehards and Darius Angler. If you follow the road West out of Flatwoods, you’ll eventually arrive at Hillfolk Hotdogs, which is the site of Untitled Poem #3 and the former home of Colonel when he lived with Angler as a child (you can find one of his “baer frends” on the kid-sized bunk bed). But inside the bus(?) at Hillfolk’s, you’ll also find similar documents and a duffel bag, just like the kind Colonel was burning in Flatwoods when he died. As a matter of fact, there are other similarly suspicious duffel bags and file caches along the Ohio River. And this takes us to Ohio River Adventures.
Fishbones is a Dirty Rat Bastard: In the exact same way that the Diehards returned to Crater, a former territory of theirs (and site of Untitled Poem #2), the Diehards also returned to Ohio River Adventures. Now, O.R.A. gets overlooked because there is no main quest line that keeps you returning to this area (maybe the grind for Raider Rep), but this place is former Diehard territory too. Now, it is critically important to know that both Fishbones (Bones) and Blackeye are O.G. Diehards. Blackeye was almost certainly Colonel’s 1st grade teacher back at the Palace of the Winding Path. But what about Bones? Well, my friends, I bet I’m about to tell you something you didn’t already know:
When Margie McClintock died in 2096 (as inferred what Rose tells us during the main quest), Meg Groberg took over and soon thereafter led the Diehards out of Appalachia before returning years later (that, you already knew). You probably also already knew that before Margie died, Meg and the other Diehards went against protocol and “shot first” when robbing people. Meg was a true raider in all the ways that Margie was not. But what you probably didn’t put together is that Margie died around the time that Flatwoods was attacked. According to the Chem Addict from Flatwoods:
“Chems Addict: Well, this is it I guess. Rock bottom I think they call it. I still miss him. Billy. I knew he was too young for me, but he made me feel good. Though it's the old Billy I really miss. The one who used to do nothing all day with me but listen to the radio and drink. I shoulda got out sooner when Billy and his buddies started torturing little cats and dogs. His friends... were no good. But that didn't stop me anyway. I can't believe my wake up call was watching people's heads... get stuck on spikes. So... what is an old gal like me to do? Steal all the food. Steal all the chems. And get the hell out of there. *laughs* I'd trade my last bite of food just to see the look on their faces. Oh, I know it's going to piss off Billy's friends, but I don't give a damn. I tell myself I should feel sorry for the little town across the river. But if I'm being honest, and that's what this tape is for, I don't really care. I call myself an addict, but it ain't the chems that finally got me. It was always Billy.”
I want to emphasize the “heads on spikes” part, because that’s something Margie would never tolerate. But Meg on the other hand let raiders be raiders. The other thing that I want to point out is “Billy.” I’m not saying for certain that this Billy is the same as Darius Angler’s brother, but I am saying that technically no body was ever recovered from the molten steel, and Angler didn’t see the accident happen because he didn’t work at Grafton Steel anymore. It’s possible that “Billy Angler,” who didn’t quit because “he needs the money,” could have taken out some kind of insurance policy, named his chem addict girlfriend as the beneficiary, faked his own death, and skipped town. Do I know for certain that this happened? Of course not. But what I do know is this: FISHBONES’S REAL NAME IS BILLY!!! The reason he’s obsessed with the letter B is because that’s his first initial. You see, at first I thought the raiders that wrecked Flatwoods were Cutthroats because of their whole feud with the Responders. But then I learned that the Flatwoods attack was caused by a bunch of chems that the Addict stole, and the Diehards were Appalachia’s great chems supplier (thanks to Angler). Furthermore, Fishbones’s current operation is spiking Mirelurk meat with an addictive substance (chems). And since Bones is an OG Diehard, it means he was the piece-of-shit raider that attacked Flatwoods and killed Colonel.
A Bit About Bruiser: I found a few interesting details about Bruiser at Ohio River Adventures, but nothing too profound. We know that he used to play football, his mascot was a “battle bear,” and that he spent some time in a vault. The likeliest conclusion from this information is that he’s from Grafton, given that’s the only high school in the region with a football field and it’s next to the makeshift vault that formerly housed a few raiders before the BOS took over. If you look up the IRL Grafton High School, you’ll find that it’s on Yates Ave (likely the namesake of Sofie Yates, a Responder turned Raider in Flatwoods) and their mascot is the “Bearcat.” Also, all the varsity jackets in FO76 have the letter B on them, but that’s more Fishbones’s thing. But none of this has anything to do with Colonel or Angler, so let’s move on.
The Charleston Cartel (2079-2082): From the Charleston Capitol Building terminal entries, we know there was a massive chem trade happening in Charleston at this time:
“Name: Matoukas, George
Date of Crime: 10.09.81
300 Block of Oak. Based on anonymous tip, Responder Atkins found subject peddling vast amounts of illegal chems out of his home. Over 300lbs of illegal chems found in the subject's basement.
Matoukas sentenced to 5 years hard labor under close supervision, with possibility of parole for good behavior. Chems were seized and destroyed.”
Since the Diehards’ operation at the Palace of the Winding Path effectively ended with the great rapture of ‘79, it only makes sense that the Diehards would have to adapt their drug trade elsewhere. If you actually look for raider activity in Charleston (outside of the courthouse), you won’t find a lot, but what you will find is very telling of their operations. You’ll find a dead raider at the chemistry workbench inside Hornwright Industrial Headquarters. You’ll find a few dead raiders in/above the pharmacy on the south side of town. And you’ll find a dead raider lurking outside the doctors’ offices (which is NOT the hospital) to the north. And this takes us to Dr. Joseph.
Dr. Joseph was a psychiatrist in Charleston who practiced both before AND after the Great War. He had the authority to refer patients to Allegheny Asylum and write prescriptions; Prescriptions that would be filled at the pharmacy on the south side of Charleston. To one patient, P. Davis, he prescribed Day Tripper. This insightful detail is why the Diehards were operating in Charleston in the first place. As many seasoned players have observed, Day Tripper is not craftable in this game; You can only find it out in the wild. Consider the following terminal entry from the Palace of the Winding Path:
“Log: 12.29.77 Since the war, incense ingredients have been hard to come by. We started rationing weeks ago, in anticipation of this, and doses are much lower. The sedative effects of the incense are a priority, to keep people from freaking out.
I've begun to improvise with some other ingredients and found some creative ways of stretching the supply, at least until things return to relative normal. Other chem supplies are plentiful.”
So here’s what I think happened. If the Diehards were in dire need of Day Tripper to make their custom chems (see: Making Incense), and the Responders had a healthy supply of Day Tripper locked inside a pharmacy in Charleston, and there was also a doctor who wrote prescriptions for Day Tripper, then all the Diehards needed to do was register a new patient with Dr. Joseph. Enter: Darius Angler.
Darius Angler was batshit crazy (if in doubt, refer to his manifesto). Angler, who now resided at Hillfolk Hotdogs, was also just a short trip up the New River from Charleston. He would periodically visit Dr. Joseph, get his prescription filled like a meth-head scoring Sudafed, and used the trip as a cover to smuggle the refined chems into the city. Essentially, I think he just made a loop around the southwest “island” of the Forest (area surrounded on all sides by 3 rivers, referred to as “Zone D”). The loop around Zone D functioned as a supply chain/assembly line for producing the chems that were being smuggled into Charleston. There’s a lot of suspicious stuff happening around here: Raider activity, duffel bags/files, bridge control, coffin conspiracies, etc. that I had to edit out for length, but I’ll try to summarize it here.
Hillfolk Hotdogs is where Angler and Colonel raised mole rats for reasons I’ll explain later. Follow the Ohio River south and you’ll soon come to a boat that’s not far away from a crashed truck loaded up with industrial chemical barrels (useful for producing industrial quantities of chems). South of that is a tent with a duffel bag. Further south you’ll find a 3-story house with suspicious files and a duffle bag hidden in the attic (just like at Hillfolk’s). South of that are some dry-docked boats with a chem box and a duffel bag. Even further south is Ohio River Adventure (a current Raider base of operation that served a similar purpose back then). Southeast of there, by Lewis & Sons, is a little “boat” with 2 stuffed bears, which I think was left behind by Colonel as he reenacted his river adventures with Angler using his bears. Southeast of there is a floating Nuka-Cola structure with a submerged safe guarded by 2 more bears, one of which has a liquor bottle. I think this is a dead drop and the bears are another work of Colonel’s. Heading East up the River you’ll find a raider-operated “store” at the end of a questionable bridge. Further east is Charleston, where George Matoukas was distributing the chems. And on the return trip down the New River is another dead drop directly beneath the Bridge on the west side. It’s a safe by a couch with a bear and Jangles (I think Jangles is supposed to represent George). Again, I think that this big loop is a supply chain/assembly line for moving chems and the components needed to make chems.
The smuggling operation also deviously involved Colonel and his “Baer Frends.” If you jetpack up to the very top of AVR Medical Center, you’ll find two people who OD’ed on chems, each with a stuffed bear next to them. So I think that either the Diehards were sewing chems inside Colonel’s stuffed bears and using them as drug mules to smuggle chems into Charleston, or that Colonel just climbed to the highest point on the hospital (as he did at the Palace and later in Flatwoods) and left two bears as a memorial. But I’m leaning toward the former because of an unmarked location in the Savage Divide that I found. It’s southeast of Bastion Park right at the bend of the monorail line. It’s essentially a fire pit with a bunch of stuffed bears thrown in it with a few dead party-goers around the area. I think this is the location where the Responders destroyed all of the Chems, bears and all, that they confiscated from George Matoukas. Speaking of George Matoukas….
Curious George and the Rocket: According to the above-mentioned terminal entry, George Matoukas was apparently the only criminal who the Responders sentenced to hard labor rather than exile. If you go to Rollins Labor Camp (formerly Rollins Work Camp), you won’t find a whole lot there other than Blood Eagles. But what you WILL find at the very top of the crane structure are two stuffed bears and a Jangles. Colonel, as a child, had a thing for playing with “baer frends in high places.” I can’t say with any certainty what happened here, but maybe Angler was the one who gave the responders that “anonymous tip” because Matoukas was starting to rub off on Colonel, and Angler didn’t want him growing up to be a Raider. Matoukas gets sentenced to hard labor rather than exile, with a change of parole pending “good behavior,” which means “snitching.” So maybe Angler took Colonel to visit his “friend” at the labor camp (visiting hours are a thing), Angler introduced George to a “rocket,” and Colonel used his toys to recreate the scene. Or not. Who knows? But what I do know is that the shitty poet (Angler) moved on from Hillfolk Hotdogs to go to the Cranberry Bog, and I think the Christmas Flood gave him the perfect reason to leave.
Untitled Poem #3: I’m intentionally skipping Untitled Poem #2, partly because I haven’t found much deeper meaning to it, but mostly because what I think it means is little more than conjecture. #3, on the other hand, I feel like I can make sense of it:
“white cedar leaning against the shadow of our river
peeling like asylum walls
hobbled together around dignity that died long ago
simple things to jumpstart fogged memories
holed as teeth hidden in tin
we leave our things pinned
winning only the stuck wings”
I think the phrase “white cedar leaning against the shadow of our river” is the title of the painting in Dr. Joseph’s office. Or at least that’s how Darius Angler would describe it as if it was some kind of Rorschach test. “Peeling like asylum walls, hobbled together around dignity that died long ago” is a reference to the office wallpaper, and perhaps another one of Dr. Joseph’s clients, Daniel Boone.
“Patient: "Boone, D"
Interesting case.
Patient responds only to "Daniel Boone" and indeed seems to believe himself to be the historical figure by the same name. I'd heard that some of the hillfolk can end up a bit off after lack of socialization, but I'd not expected to see such a case.
Advised that he be sent to Allegheny rather than the Penitentiary for further observation.”
There’s only a VERY narrow window of plausibility to suggest that Angler is Daniel Boone, so I won’t. But this entry seems to refer back to Untitled Poem #3, with worlds like “hillfolk” (as in Hillfolk Hotdogs), “Allegheny” (as in asylum), and “the historical figure” (as in dignity that died long ago). I think the line “simple things to jumpstart fogged memories'' refers to the Souvenir Magnet on the fridge at Hillfolk Hotdogs, and I think it came from Lady Janet’s Soft Serve (not Cow Spot Creamery). “Holed as teeth hidden in tin” refers to the mole rats that he was raising with Colonel at Hillfolk’s (the cat bowl on the floor is for the mole rat that walks around the trailer like Fry’s dog from Futurama, just waiting for Colonel to come home). And “we leave our things pinned, winning only the stuck wings,” refers to Angler’s (and Colonel’s) escape from the Diehards. I’m assuming this event took place just after the Christmas flood, once the chem operation in Charleston was destroyed with the rest of the city. But if you remember those dead raiders I mentioned earlier, there are a few more. Outside of Dr. Joseph’s office is a dead raider next to an ammo box. Well, next to him is a makeshift bridge that goes over the highway. And if you keep going in the same direction once you step off the bridge you’ll hit the southwest corner of Wade Airport. Immediately in that corner past the fence is a locked truck-trailer (watch out for the mine) with 2 more dead raiders and a power armor chassis (sometimes). I think the last line of the poem refers to this exact event, leaving his power armor (and compatriots) pinned in the back of the trailer so he can steal yet another Vertibird. Angler flew the automated aircraft to Watoga. Why? I don’t know. But it explains how he got to the Cranberry Bog and why his body can be found just a short distance south of the city.
Untitled Poem #4: Just like #2, I don’t have any deep insight into the specifics so all I can do is speculate. I’ll spare you the details. But what I think it’s about is the very end of his relationship with Colonel. I think the time Angler and Colonel spent together in the unmarked cabin southeast of Sunrise Field was just Angler teaching Colonel to be self-sufficient (hunting, trapping, maintaining weapons and whatnot). I think that when the scorched attacked Harper’s Ferry in 2086 that there was also generally increased scorched activity in the eastern half of Appalachia. The poem describes Angler providing cover fire to, or perhaps just drawing fire away from Colonel as he escaped through Big Bend Tunnel, later to be found by the Responders. But again, like with #2, all I can do with this poem is speculate.
The Mysterious Mole Rats: This is a question I’ve had for almost 2 years now, and I think I finally figured it out. Back at the Palace of the Winding Path, there’s a lonely mole rat that lives in the computer room by the garden. There’s also a dead mole rat next to a dead raider pilot by a downed plane that was headed to the Palace from the north. I didn’t know what the Diehards needed mole rats for because I was only looking at the Palace itself. But the answer to this question is found at Lady Janet’s. Everyone thinks that the two bears in gas masks by the chemistry is just a Breaking Bad easter egg. But I think it’s yet another “baer frend” reenactment left behind by Colonel. Do you remember how the cultists at the Palace ran out of ingredients to make the “spiritual incense” and had to improvise? Well, one of the substitute ingredients they used, and the reason they were importing mole rats, and the reason the Diehards took care of the children like they did, is found in the baby carriage at Lady Janet’s.
A stroller full of human jaw bones? Yeah…. Teeth. Or more precisely, “baby teeth.” I suppose mole rat teeth would do in a pinch, but as messed up as it sounds human baby teeth were preferred. This is why the Diehards at the Palace were taking care of those first-graders; because six-year-olds shed baby teeth like it’s raining molars! This also answers a question you didn’t even know you had, and it takes us back to Flatwoods. Here’s a note written by Jeremiah Ward who lived in trailer in the town (and the Ransacked Bunker before that):
“I, Jeremiah Ward, resident in the town of Flatwoods, county of... not sure.
Being of sound mind, and not acting under... duress. Mostly.
Hereby declare this letter to be my last will and testament.
Mia gets the house, and everything in it.
It ain't much but that's all I got to give and... she's all I got.
I know she's still alive.
The Responders say the dogs got her, but I know it ain't true.
They been real good to us. Teaching an old geezer like me how to really cook is something. I'll give em that.
But I know they lyin about those dogs. I seen em in the hills. There's some bad folks scoping us out. They took my granddaughter, I just know it.
I'll get you back, Mia. I promise.”
Mia, a baby who slept in the crib in that trailer, was abducted by raiders. And the only raider gang that ever had any interest in kids was the Diehards. And when you remember that the Responders had a foster care program that would later be run by Colonel once he was older, you’ll remember that a shit load of children went “missing” when Billy (Fishbones) attacked Flatwoods. And if teeth (baby, mole rat, or otherwise) was the secret ingredient in Angler’s chem recipe… and Colonel was Angler’s apprentice for a number of years before he joined the Responders… and Colonel was the caretaker of all of the children of Flatwoods… then exactly what was in those documents that Colonel was burning on his back porch?
Full Circle: So after everything, the Diehards lost their crop of children at the Palace of the Winding Path in 2079, but took the children of Flatwoods and left Appalachia. When they came back, they put Fishbones (Billy) in charge of the Ohio River Adventures operation, who is now spiking the mirelurk meat with a potent chem. It’s totally possible that Ra Ra is actually Mia Ward (Jeremiah Ward’s granddaughter). Hell, it’s even possible that Jeremiah Ward is somehow Ward from Foundation. Since Colonel was obviously keeping, and subsequently burning, secrets, I’d say he was also inclined to keep his raider past a secret as well as the truth about his adoptive father. Like he said in his Survivor’s Story, “he was bad.” Perhaps the reason he kept his Diehard history a secret from the Dassa and the other Responders was because he knew that the Responders were the ones punishing and exiling people back in Charleston. But this whole story began the day Darius Angler decided to get revenge on Grafton Steel. And if his brother hadn’t actually died after all, then it would explain why Angler stayed with the Diehards for as long as he did rather than returning to the Free states. Regardless, this entire story began and ended with Billy. “It was always Billy.”

Does It Cost Money To Send Crypto To Other Wallets Online?
This is the demo version of this article, to read the full version for free please visit the link below:
Cryptocurrencies have gained significant popularity in recent years, revolutionizing the way we think about and conduct financial transactions. As digital assets, cryptocurrencies rely on blockchain technology and digital wallets to enable secure and decentralized peer-to-peer transfers. In this blog post, we will explore the costs associated with sending cryptocurrencies to other wallets online, providing insights into transaction fees and how you can optimize your transactions.

Understanding Cryptocurrency Transactions

To comprehend the costs of sending cryptocurrencies to other wallets, it’s crucial to grasp how these transactions function within the blockchain. Cryptocurrency transactions involve the transfer of digital assets from one wallet address to another. These transactions are recorded on a distributed ledger called the blockchain, which ensures transparency and security.
Miners play a pivotal role in validating and processing transactions. They dedicate computational power to solve complex mathematical problems, adding new blocks to the blockchain. Miners are rewarded for their efforts with newly minted cryptocurrencies and transaction fees paid by users. Transaction fees incentivize miners to prioritize and process transactions promptly.

Factors Affecting Transaction Costs

Several factors influence the costs associated with sending cryptocurrencies to other wallets:
  1. Network Congestion: During periods of high demand, such as when the network experiences heavy traffic or increased activity, transaction fees tend to rise due to limited block space. This congestion can lead to delays and higher costs.
  2. Wallet Providers: Different wallet providers have varying fee structures. Some wallets charge a fixed fee per transaction, while others calculate fees based on factors like transaction size or priority. It’s essential to consider the fee policies of your chosen wallet provider.
  3. Cryptocurrency Type: Each cryptocurrency operates on its own blockchain, and transaction fees can vary significantly between them. The design of the blockchain, block size, and mining algorithm can impact transaction costs.

Common Transaction Fees for Popular Cryptocurrencies

Let’s take a closer look at the transaction fees for some popular cryptocurrencies:
A. Bitcoin Transaction Fees: Bitcoin, the first and most well-known cryptocurrency, has experienced increased transaction fees due to its limited block size. As of the latest data, average transaction fees range from a few dollars to double-digit figures, depending on network congestion.
B. Ethereum Transaction Fees: Ethereum, a blockchain platform supporting various cryptocurrencies and decentralized applications, has also faced congestion issues. Transaction fees on the Ethereum network can range from a few cents to several dollars or more.
C. Litecoin Transaction Fees: Litecoin, often considered the silver to Bitcoin’s gold, boasts faster block confirmation times and lower fees. At present, average transaction fees for Litecoin remain relatively low compared to other cryptocurrencies.

Reducing Transaction Costs

To minimize transaction costs when sending cryptocurrencies to other wallets online, consider the following strategies:
A. Timing Transactions: Monitor network congestion and aim to initiate transactions during periods of lower demand. This approach can help you avoid peak fee times and reduce costs.
B. Wallet Provider Selection: Research and compare different wallet providers to identify those with lower fee structures. Look for wallets that prioritize competitive fees without compromising security and usability.
C. Utilizing Cryptocurrencies with Lower Fees: Explore alternative cryptocurrencies that offer lower transaction fees. Some newer blockchain networks focus on scalability and low-cost transactions, presenting viable alternatives for cost-conscious users.


Sending cryptocurrencies to other wallets online can incur transaction costs influenced by factors like network congestion, wallet provider fees, and the type of cryptocurrency used. By understanding these factors and implementing practical strategies, you can optimize your transactions and reduce costs. Remember to research and compare fees before making any transactions, as fee structures can vary widely. Stay informed about the evolving landscape of cryptocurrencies and wallet providers to ensure you make the most cost-effective decisions.

2023.05.29 14:02 dreftzg [Daily News] TAG Heuer Gives The New Monaco A Skeleton Dial, Aquastar Revives Their First Dive Watch With The Model 60, De Bethune Shrinks Their New DB28XS And Alpina Has A Very Interesting Startimer Pilot

It's Monday and I have a bone to pick with TAG Heuer. They announced their new watch right as I clicked publish on the news update. I guess you're already caught up on it.

What's new

TAG Heuer Releases A Trio Of New Monacos With Skeleton Dials Ahead Of The Big Race
Hey, thanks a lot TAG! The exact second I sent out the Friday edition of It’s About Time they decided to announce a new watch. And not just any watch, that I would be cool with waiting until Monday to write about it. It is a trio of new and very different TAG Heuer Monaco Skeleton Chronographs, one of the first times they put a skeleton dial in the Monaco, but it’s also a release that coincides with the Monaco F1 Grand Prix. So here I am, writing about it after the race is over.
Never mind, it’s still a nice watch. Excluding the V4 editions that had a different case and was driven by belts, a unique piece in carbon made for Only Watch 2021, and the very exclusive “Riviera” edition, TAG Heuer has never made a production Monaco with a skeleton dial. And looking at these watches, it looks to have been a mistake on TAG’s part as the watches really do look fantastic.
The base dimensions of the watch remain the same - 39mm wide and 14.7mm thick, but not much else is the same. The case in the skeleton model is made out of sandblasted titanium to make it much lighter. While I see why some people would want that, I adore the weight of the original model. You know when you are wearing one.
TAG calls this watch a skeleton, I described it as a skeleton but it, in fact, is not actually a skeleton watch. It would more appropriately be described as an openworked Monaco, as it has a partial dial that reveals a slightly reworked movement. But even as such it looks great - all sharp lines and angles. The watch comes in three editions - Original Blue with an untreated titanium case, blue dial, white and red accents and a blue strap; Racing Red, an untreated case, black dial with red and white accents and a black strap; and Turquoise, with a black DLC coated case, a black strap, a black dial with turquoise-coloured accents and sub-dials, a colour also being sported on the column wheel and rotor.
Inside is the familiar Calibre Heuer 02 with some slight improvements, with an 80 hour power reserve. Apart from the colors, all the straps are the same, a mix of rubber and leather with a titanium folding clasp.
All three are part of the regular collection and are not limited. The Original Blue and Racing Red editions are priced at CHF 10,500, and the DLC-coated Turquoise edition at CHF 11,000.
Aquastar Revives Their First Dive Watch With The Model 60, The Most Classic Of Skin Divers With A Great Price
We are in the golden age of brand revivals. Aquastar, for example, was founded in the early 60s in Geneva by Frédéric Robert, a diver, sailor, pilot, mathematician and watchmaker after Robert took over his fathers watchmaking business JeanRichard. Over the next ten years, Rober filed a number of patents that are still relevant today, like inner rotating bezels, multiple dive decompression bezels, a new crown sealing system and the friction bezel ring…
When Robert retired, the brand was bought and sold by a number of companies and ended up being revived in 2020 by Rick Marei, who is known for building up Doxa to the powerhouse it is today. And ever since then they have been putting out fire releases. Their newest one is the Aquastar Model 60, which brings back the brand’s first-ever diver with modern specs.
All of the modern releases from Aquastar have been based on the Deepstar, but the Model 60 gets a completely new case. It’s based on the original Model 60, introduced in 1957 as JeanRichard7s first diver with a water resistance rating of 100 meters, and it was seemingly the earliest watch to use a skin-diver-style case. The Model 60 is also famous for being worn by Don Walsh to the bottom of the Mariana Trench while inside the Trieste submersible.
The stainless steel case of the Model 60 measures 37mm wide, 47mm lug-to-lug, 11mm thick and with a 19mm lug spacing. Speaking of the lugs, the watch comes on a tropic strap and can be had with an optional beads-of-rice bracelet with a safety clasp, or a nylon strap. Water resistance is 200 meters, and the sunburst-finished steel bezel is bidirectional.
The dial is what you would expect from a vintage diver - black with printed white minute track and hour markers, filled with “Old Radium” Super-LumiNova. The hands are the same as the Deepstar aside from the addition of a central seconds hand with a lume pip. Inside the watch is the La Joux-Perret G100, which features a 68-hour power reserve and is adjusted to four positions.
The Aquastar Model 60 will be a regular production model for the brand, and will not be limited. The Model 60 will start at $990 and rise to $1,290 at some point. The bracelet will cost an extra $159. Also the first 100 buyers will get a liquid-filled compass that can be attached to either a Tropic or nylon strap. However, considering the amount of press this watch has gotten over the weekend, I imagine they sold the first 100 already.
The New And More Compact De Bethune DB28XS Starry Seas Is An Ode To Calm Seas
De Bethune watches are really something very special. The DB28 line especially. The floating lugs, delta-shaped bridge and crown at noon all give it a very futuristic look while remaining supremely elegant. The newly introduced DB28X Starry Seas takes all of these traits and gives them a huge makeover, despite looking practically the same - it shrinks it down radically to 39mm and gives it a beautifully serene blue dial with a world-first random guilloché pattern designed to evoke a starry sea.
The DB28XS is not only the smallest model in De Bethune’s family but inherits the slimmer, more stylised profile of the DB28XP models. With its diameter of 38.7mm (down from almost 43mm of the DB28) and thickness of 7.4mm, this petite newcomer is small and slim but also light, thanks to the polished titanium case.
The dial, which relies on a heat-blued titanium base that De Bethune has become known for, is decorated with the world’s first random guilloché pattern invented by De Bethune. Whether this means that De Bethune invented a random guilloché pattern or whether it is the fact that De Bethune has applied a random guiloché pattern to a blued titanium base needs clarifying. But there’s no denying that it’s a beautiful dial, as the wavy pattern is interrupted with sprinklings of white gold that mimic stars. A silver-plated rounded chapter ring bearing transferred Arabic numerals for hours and a blue dotted minute track frames the wavy dial. Time is indicated by two custom-made and hand-polished titanium openworked hands.
The watch comes on a supple dark blue alligator leather strap with light blue top stitching and a titanium pin buckle. De Bethune have not said whether this will be a limited model or when it will be available, but it’s expected to retail for CHF 77,000, excluding taxes.
Alpina Has A Very Interesting Startimer Pilot Heritage Manufacture
Alpina is really starting to annoy me. I don’t want to take them seriously, on account of the name they share with the people that make my skis, and I’m not a huge fan of a number of their watches. But every now and again, they release a watch that’s just so great… Wait until you read all the specs and the price of the newly introduced Aplina Startimer Pilot Heritage Manufacture, an attractive vintage-inspired pilot’s watch.
The barrel-shaped case measures 42×40.75mm and lacks traditional lugs, with the strap going deep into the brushed case, with a crown at 4 o’clock. The dial is splendidly simple, with a deep blue color, a white minute track and beige luminescent hour markers. The rectangular hour and minute hands get the same beige lume. You can get it on a very vintage brown calf leather strap with white stitching.
But what’s really special is what’s inside the watch. A number of Alpina watches have had third party movements, but this one gets the AL-709 in-house calibre, an automatic movement presented in a becoming golden hue. Visible via an exhibition caseback, the movement at first glance resembles a manual movement due to its oscillating mass sharing the same golden tones as the automatic device bridge and mainplate. Subtle graining, blue screws and perlage are all augmenting the model’s overall appeal.
But what makes it even more special is the availability of 188 pieces and the price - just €2,850. And now this presents me with a question. This is obviously a very attractive watch - it looks great, has a good size, has an in house movement and does not break the bank, while still being limited which should, in theory, increase its desirability. I only now found out about the watch from the article in Escapement. In fact, this has been available since January. Why hasn’t it sold out yet? Is it just not attractive enough? Is it the name? It can’t be the value for money, or am I mistaken?
Respected Independent Watchmaker Andreas Strehler Launches New Brand And Watch With The Strehler Sirna
Andreas Strehler is one of those watchmakers that is a leader among independent watchmakers and for good reason. He has mastered everything from fabrication to finishing, but then would not budge from the polarising design of his watches that many argue kept a lot of customers from him. And I love when someone is so stubborn. To be clear, his previous watches were not ugly monstrosities. They were elegant timepieces marked by a distinctive papillon, or “butterfly”, movement architecture and resulting cushion-shaped case, and Strehler has become known as the independent watchmaker’s watchmaker, having developed the HMC 341 perpetual calendar movement for H. Moser & Cie and the Dragon Lever escapement for Precision Engineering.
Stehler has now decided to expand to a wider audience and has launched a new brand known simply as Strehler, which aims to reach a wider audience with more accessible designs and prices. The brand’s opening act is the Sirna, named after the town of Sirnach in northeastern Switzerland where the manufacture is based.
At launch, the Sirna is offered in a single reference that features an elegantly proportioned, 40 mm steel case with a concave case band and ergonomically formed lugs. The crown is inlaid with a blue titanium disk that features Mr. Strehler’s signature Papillon logo. The patterned dial is also titanium, anodised in a beautiful blue. Designed by Eric Giroud, each dial is machined and laser-engraved before being individually hand polished.
But what’s really special is what’s inside - the in-house SA-30 movement that has some of the highest quality finishings at this price point. For example, the movement has an in-house gold rotor and ball-bearing rotor mount. Most brands, even those in the so-called “Holy Trinity”, typically outsource the production of rotors to a specialist.
The architecture of this 30mm calibre stands out with a series of circles for the bridges and the openworked rotor that match the curvature of the case. The large, free-sprung balance beats at 21,600 vibrations/hour and boasts 60 hours of power reserve. The decoration of this movement is refined, with hand-chamfered bevels, circular Geneva stripes, graining and circular-grained wheels, all channelling the movement’s elaborate design.
The Strehler Sirna comes on a supple brown calfskin strap with off-white stitching. The steel pin buckle is engraved with the brand’s logo. The price is set at CHF 20,000 (excl. taxes), which seems fair for an “independent watch” of this level. The watch is not a limited edition, but the production capacity is expected to be around 30 to 50 watches per year maximum.

Watch Worthy - A look at an offbeat, less known watch you might actually like

The Sofia II from Axia Time — high style with some substance
The Sofia II sits somewhere between a dressy and sporty piece, and Axia has sized it accordingly. The diameter of 40.5mm and lug-to-lug length of just under 48mm is a good fit on my 17.75cm (7″) wrist. It perhaps looks even larger than that due to the all-dial design and large polished lug facets. The combination of titanium, a thickness of 10.5mm, and lug tips sitting slightly lower than the case back all help the watch to sit securely and wear comfortably. But this leads to another dichotomy.

2023.05.29 14:02 squealer2000 Property boundary extended without planning permission

Hi All,
My partner and I have had an offer on a property accepted. After delving a bit deeper though, I can see from council records that the current owners had an application to move the garden boundary fence rejected, but it looks like they completed the work anyway. I have requested further explanation from the owners via the estate agent, but if it turns out that the work was done despite the rejection, would that leave us potentially liable on the future as new owners?

2023.05.29 14:01 viral_spices How Sesame Seeds Can Boost Your Immune System

Sesame seeds are tiny oil seeds which have been used in traditional medicines to treat numerous diseases since centuries. These seeds are packed with essential nutrients that can help boost our immune system and keep us healthy. In this blog, we will explore the various ways in which sesame seeds can boost our immune system.
Rich in Antioxidants
Sesame seeds are rich in antioxidants, which are compounds that help protect our cells from damage caused by free radicals. Free radicals are unstable molecules that can damage our cells and contribute to the development of chronic diseases such as cancer, heart disease, and Alzheimer's disease. Antioxidants help to stabilize these free radicals and stop them from causing damages. Sesame seeds contain a variety of antioxidants, including sesamin, sesamolin, and sesamol.
High in Zinc
Zinc is an essential mineral that plays a crucial role in our immune system. It helps our immune cells function properly and helps our body produce new immune cells. Zinc deficiency can weaken our immune system and make us more susceptible to infections. Sesame seeds are an excellent source of zinc, with just one tablespoon providing 7% of our daily recommended intake.
Contains Vitamin E
Vitamin E is a high-powered antioxidant that assists to protect our cells from damage. It also plays a role in our immune system by helping our immune cells function properly. Sesame seeds are a good source of vitamin E, with just one tablespoon providing 6% of our daily recommended intake.
Boosts T-cell Production
T-cells are a type of white blood cell that plays a crucial role in our immune system. They help identify and destroy infected cells and cancer cells. Sesame seeds contain a compound called lignans, which has been shown to boost T-cell production and improve immune function.
Anti-inflammatory Properties
Inflammation is a natural response of our immune system to infection or injury. However, chronic inflammation can help to develop chronic diseases such as diabetes, cancer and heart disease. Sesame seeds contain compounds that have anti-inflammatory properties, including sesamin and sesamol. These compounds help reduce inflammation in our body and improve our overall health.
Help Fight Infections
Sesame seeds contain a variety of compounds that have antimicrobial properties, including sesamin, sesamolin, and sesamol. These compounds help fight off harmful bacteria, viruses, and fungi that can cause infections. Sesame oil has also been shown to have antibacterial properties and can be used to treat skin infections.
In conclusion, sesame seeds are a nutrient-dense food that can help boost our immune system and keep us healthy. They are rich in antioxidants, zinc, vitamin E, and other essential nutrients that play a crucial role in our immune system. Sesame seeds also have anti-inflammatory and antimicrobial properties that help fight off infections and improve our overall health. Adding sesame seeds to our diet is an easy and delicious way to support our immune system and stay healthy.
Veerral Agro Tech and Organic Products India is India’s leading manufacturer, supplier, and exporter of natural sesame seeds, hulled sesame seeds, and black sesame seeds. Not just conventional sesame seeds, but Veerral Agro Tech also supplies organic sesame seeds all across the world.

2023.05.29 14:01 Srinath022 Potato Chips Manufacturers in Bangalore Chips Manufacturers Bangalore

Potato chips manufacturers in Bangalore have different methods of making them. The main steps that are included in the process are as follows. Raw potatoes are first peeled and then cut into thin slices with the help of blades. The slices are then carefully washed. This is done to get rid of excess starch from them. Potato chips are made in different ways.
While some are made by frying, others may be made by baking. In the case of frying, the slices are placed in hot bubbling oil at 190°C. Some manufacturers, however, go for the healthier alternatives of baking the chips instead.
Their crunchiness and amazing taste have won hearts. Potato chips manufacturers in Bangalore are always on the lookout for new flavours. These flavours are the best way to attract people to purchasing potato chips. Kushal Foods has made itself into a famous potato chips manufacturers in Bangalore.

2023.05.29 14:01 spunchy M&B 2023 Lecture 4: The Money View, Micro and Macro

M&B 2023 Lecture 4: The Money View, Micro and Macro
For our schedule and links to other discussions, see the Money and Banking 2023 master post.
This is the discussion thread for Economics of Money and Banking Lecture 4: The Money View, Micro and Macro.
The settlement (survival) constraint says you have to meet your cash commitments as they come due. This lecture explores the settlement constraint from multiple perspectives.
We can disaggregate assets into time patterns of future cash inflows, and liabilities into time patterns of future cash outflows (commitments). If your cash inflows are insufficient to cover your cash commitments at any given moment, then the settlement constraint binds, and you're dead.
The settlement constraint can be relaxed from above but not below. The payment system is a credit system. By relaxing our settlement constraint, economic units (agents) above us in the hierarchy can allow us to expand credit to make otherwise-impossible payments.
Mehrling introduces the "sources and uses" notation, an analytical tool that helps us match up cash flows with different liquidity categories: monetary, funding, and market.
This Lecture connects with Hyman Minsky's cashflow-oriented view of the economy, which we will discuss on Wednesday.
Note: The link to the Fed release in the lecture notes doesn't work anymore. Here's the latest version (Fourth Quarter 2022). The sources and uses matrices are on pages 1 and 2 (color-coded red).

Part 1: FT: Dealer of Last Resort

When I heard the news of another round of quantitative easing in the US last week, my first thought was that Mario Draghi should have done the same. Instead, the president of the European Central Bank opted for a conditional bond purchasing programme with an uncertain start date. In the meantime, the eurozone’s faltering economy needs a much more determined monetary stimulus, and it needs it right now.—QE would be right for Europe, too
The idea with dealer of last resort is that the central bank offers to buy an unlimited quantity of an asset at a particular price. This installs a floor below which the price cannot go—and hence a ceiling on the yield/interest rate. In the fall of 2012, the ECB is announcing its Outright Monetary Transactions (OMT) program, which offers to buy the sovereign debt of European member countries that need help—possibly Italy and Spain.
This is the "monetizing government debt" operation we've seen before.
The problem with the OMT program is that it only backstops sovereign debt if the countries ask for it and if they agree to certain conditions. But it can be problematic to ask for help. So the question is whether the OMT will have its desired effect if it never gets used/activated. Nearly nine years later, I think the answer is: partly.
Although the announcement of the program did help drive down interest rates, as far as I can tell the ECB has still never actually done any OMT purchases. Here's a Bloomberg article from 2020.
As of last year, Mario Draghi is now Prime Minister of Italy.

Part 2: Reading: Hyman Minsky

As we'll see in the reading next week, Minsky thought about the economy in terms of cashflows. His financial instability hypothesis was based on the idea that the financial sector becomes more brittle as it becomes more difficult for everyone to line up their cash inflows with their commitments—the "survival constraint" binds more tightly.
This can all happen without anyone becoming insolvent at any time.

Part 3: Payments: Money and Credit

In a "pure money" system, nobody ever borrows from each other. People make payments only by passing back and forth money assets. Whether that money is represented as physical coins/tokens/notes or merely as entries on a balance sheet, it's something that the people spending the money can't create more of.
Such a system is, of course, impossible. People will always find ways to borrow from each other to introduce elasticity.
On the other end of the spectrum is a "pure credit" system:
The above balance sheet shows payment by issuance. This creates a new IOU from the buyer to the seller of the goods. This expands credit in the economy.
There's also payment by set-off where the buyer crosses off a debt owed to him by the seller. This contracts credit.
And, for completeness, we can imagine the buyer taking on a liability that was previously owed by the seller. Credit neither expands nor contracts. This is payment by novation.
In the credit payment system, the quantity of outstanding credit increases and decreases as payments are made. That means the quantity of assets—and liabilities—expands and contracts. In the real world, there's both money and credit. Holding a buffer of money reserves allows us to make payments without lining them up perfectly against cash inflows.
Money is credit that's issued above you in the money-credit hierarchy. Banks, who sit above you in the hierarchy, create elasticity by swapping their liabilities for your liabilities. What's money to you (bank deposits) is a form of credit from the perspective of the banking system.
Notice that by using a bank as an intermediary, the overall payment system still behaves as a credit system. You pay using something that looks like money to you, but the bank created that money as credit.
On his BU site, Perry links to two helpful YouTube videos by the Bank of England:
The first video explains that money is a special form of generally acceptable IOU. In today's world, instead of being directly redeemable for something like gold, the central bank does other things to ensure the integrity of the monetary standard and to manage the stability (or instability) of the credit superstructure that rests on top of it.
The second video discusses "endogenous" money creation, narrow money versus broad money (hierarchy), and the effects of quantitative easing. Even for the "narrow money" issued by the central bank, they don't get to choose how much of it they issue. It has to endogenously adjust based on what's necessary for stable monetary conditions.

Part 4: Payments: Discipline and Elasticity

In our first example, the discipline came from the limited quantity of money—when either side ran out of money, they could no longer buy and trade stopped. In the second example, the discipline comes from the bilateral credit limit. In the third example the discipline comes from the credit limit and terms imposed by the bank on each borrower, and the elasticity comes from the willingness of the bank to swap its own IOU (which is money) for IOUs farther down the hierarchy (which are credit).—Lecture Notes
Banks can impose discipline from above by refusing to expand their credit, which is your money.
We can imagine credit limits as representing balance sheets' capacity to expand. And that capacity can bounce around depending on how much people trust each other, how much they trust financial conditions, and the capacity/willingness of lenders to expand credit.

Part 5: The Survival Constraint

To analyze the flow of money, we can think of all "economic units" (people, firms, governments, etc.) as banks. Everybody is a "money-flow" operation. Everybody faces a survival (liquidity/reserve/settlement) constraint.
To analyze how financial commitments affect the economy it is necessary to look at economic units in terms of their cash flows. The cash-flow approach looks at all units—be they households, corporations, state and municipal governments, or even national governments—as if they were banks.(Minsky 1986, p. 198)
For an economic agent to remain functional, it must be able to meet its cash commitments as they come due. If you can't make a promised payment, you're in trouble. In terms of day-to-day operations, you don't necessarily have to be solvent (assets > liabilities). You just have to be liquid enough to make your promised payments. You can continue doing business for a long time, even if you're insolvent. But not if you're illiquid.
"Liquidity kills you quick."—Perry Mehrling

Part 6: Sources and Uses Accounts

A key feature of the sources and uses framework is that it allows us to categorize cash flows. Different categories of sources and uses have different properties and represent different constraints. Mehrling breaks sources and uses into four categories: Goods, Financial Assets, Financial Debts, and Money.
Each category's source corresponds to a type of liquidity.
  • Goods: Expenditure/Receipt — Market Liquidity
  • Assets: Accumulate/Liquidate — Market Liquidity
  • Debts: Repay/Borrow — Funding Liquidity
  • Money: Hoard/Dishoard — Monetary Liquidity
For conciseness, I've shortened "Financial Assets" to "Assets" and "Financial Debts" to "Debts." Goods and money are also assets on the balance sheet.
Dishoarding is the only source that requires no counterparty. Separating out assets and liabilities emphasizes that agents manage their gross liabilities, not just their net debts. Each and every cash commitment needs to be fulfilled.
The sources and uses accounts represent payment flows, whereas the balance sheets we're used to represent stocks. Sources and uses can be translated into balance sheet changes.
  • Rule 1: For each agent, every use has a corresponding source, and vice versa.
  • Rule 2: Every agent's use is some other agent's source, and vice versa.
The first rule is just about keeping track of where the money goes when you receive it (or where it comes from when you spend it). The second rule ties every agent in the economy together.
We put the goods and services "above the line." The other three categories of sources and uses are below-the-line financial accounts. What's possible above the line (goods and services) is determined by what happens below the line (financial). This MOOC focuses mostly on what's below the line.
We don't revisit sources and uses much in later lectures, but have a look at this blog post by Daniel Neilson for more intuition on sources and uses.

Part 7: Payment Example: Money and Credit

In this part, we use sources and uses to compare a cash payment to a credit card payment. I've also translated the examples into balance sheets, so we can see how the two notations map onto each other. We can use the Clavero color-coding convention for both.
Here's the simpler cash payment:
And here's the balance-sheet version:
It's just an asset swap. Each party ends up with what the other party started with.
Here's the balance-sheet version of the credit card payment:
And the sources-and-uses version:
The two main parties (Perry and Vareli) ended up with what the other person started with. But more complicated stuff happened along the way.
I've also partitioned the balance into time periods starting from top to bottom. The sources and uses, on the other hand, are partitioned by their categories.
Notice that each issuance is paired up with its eventual set-off. This is possible because the credit expansion that facilitated the payment eventually contracted back down.
Several different credit-related transactions happen "below the line." These transactions don't directly buy goods and services, but they ultimately facilitate payments for goods and services that take place "above the line." Paying attention to what happens below the line can help us understand what happens above the line.
Mehrling's lecture notes further break down the Vareli credit card payment example into separate sources and uses diagrams for the three steps. We can do that here using our payment-type color coding.
First, Perry makes the credit payment to get the dinner.
The Goods line represents a "payment by assignment" of the dinner. The asset and debt lines together represent an "IOU swap."
Vareli settles with Mastercard at the end of the day—and the end of every day.
Perry settles with Mastercard at the end of the month—and the end of every month.
Balance-sheet liabilities (financial debts) only ever represent a specific type of use: repayment. Liabilities represent time patterns of future cash commitments. You have promised to repay at various times in the future. You could also novate the asset to repay it sooner.
If you fail to match your previously committed use with a corresponding source, you've failed to meet your cash commitment with a cash flow. You've defaulted.
Financial assets represent a specific type of source: liquidation. The asset's time pattern of cash flows is a time pattern of liquidation. You could also sell the asset to liquidate it sooner.
Since we haven't seen novation on a sources and uses table, let's do that now. When a payment is made in the banking system, a portfolio transfer happens between banks. Here it is in sources and uses:
For Bank A, the dishoarding of reserves is the source of funds used to repay the deposits. Notice that there's no set-off happening here. The debt still exists. It's just been transferred to Bank B.
For Bank B, the borrowing of deposits is the source of funds, which are hoarded as reserves. Again, the borrowing doesn't happen through the issuance of new debt. It happens through acquiring deposit liabilities that Bank A previously held (novation).
We have yet to see hierarchy/alchemy in a sources and uses table, so let's do that now. Below is an example from Mehrling that's not in the lectures.
Notice that the bank is borrowing as its source of funds. The corresponding use of funds for the borrower is hoarding. Hierarchy is the only case when hoarding and dishoarding are not paired in rule #2. In this case, the bank is above the borrower.

Part 8: Flow of Funds Accounts

In NIPA accounts, the emphasis is on value added and employment, so we focus on final production. But used goods are also exchanged, and also financial assets. These exchanges are shunted off to one side by NIPA but are at the same level of analysis in FoF. Indeed, in FoF the sale of goods and the sale of assets are equivalent ways of achieving a source of funds.—Lecture Notes
In a way the Keynesian framework grows from the quantity theory, with C+I+G+X-M serving as a kind of disaggregation of MV, and Y serving as a specification of a subset of PT. Copeland wanted to go even farther but he did not win out. Actual macroeconomic debate was between Keynesians and monetarists, and FoF remained a specialty interest for those who wanted to track developments in the financial world (below the line).—Lecture Notes
If we pretend that the payment system is a "pure money" system, then an expansion of credit just looks like an increase in the velocity of the fixed amount of money.
The Flow of Funds accounts exhibit statistical discrepancies partly because it's impossible to record all financial promises, agreements, and expectations on balance sheets. And they were designed before financial innovations such as derivatives.
We can still conceptualize any of these things as being on an implicit balance sheet. But to the extent that we regulate what's on firms' explicit balance sheets, it can push financial arrangements off the explicit balance sheet.

Part 9: The Survival Constraint, Redux

The central concern from a banking perspective is not solvency but liquidity, i.e., the survival constraint. Are current cash inflows sufficient to cover current cash outflow commitments? If yes, then we satisfy the survival constraint.—Lecture Notes
Credit allows us to delay the settlement/survival/reserve constraint.
Of the sources of funds, only dishoarding is dependable during a crisis. If you have the money you can always dishoard it to make a payment. To sell an asset (or a good), or to borrow, you need a buyer or a lender. Market liquidity and funding liquidity require counterparties.

Part 10: Liquidity, Long and Short

The key to Minsky is the alignment of cashflows and commitments in time. The economy consists of a web of interconnected agents with patterns of cash inflow and patterns of cash commitments going out into the future. Liquidity constraints anticipated in the future have consequences for today.
Because banks borrow short and lend long, they're always potentially vulnerable to cashflow mismatches (i.e. liquidity problems). In Minsky's terminology, banks are never "hedge units." They can't be. They always have to worry about rolling over their funding.
Agents that are under liquidity stress (i.e. up against the survival constraint) have to borrow. In this case, borrowing has nothing to do with time preferences or information about the market. It's not a choice.

Part 11: Financial Fragility, Flows and Stocks
We're used to balance sheets representing stocks of assets and liabilities. Flows represent changes in those assets and liabilities. Expected future flows tell us how the balance sheets are expected to change in the future.
Stocks represent residuals of past cashflows and promises of future cashflows. The balance between the pattern of cashflows and cash commitments is important for individuals, but also important for the economy as a whole.
Crisis shows up in the money-market rate of interest as agents under liquidity stress become desperate and bid up the price of liquidity.
Solvency problems can become liquidity problems and liquidity problems can become solvency problems.
For our purposes the question of solvency is interesting mainly as an outer bound on the credit limit facing each agent. Intuitively it makes sense that that credit limit will be somehow related to the net worth. Solvent agents have unused borrowing power on their balance sheets which they can potentially mobilize to make payments. Thus we can see how asset price fluctuations can cause fluctuations in borrowing power, which might have consequences for immediate liquidity. Solvency problems can easily become liquidity problems. —Lecture Notes

2023.05.29 14:01 nankilla I just ended a toxic relationship after 6 months

My ex and I got together in october, technically started dating on Halloween. So Basically first month and a half was great then we started arguing and fighting. Im easily brought to anger and prone to say very mean things and call names. She gaslights and uses manipulation and confusion tactics to discredit any point I make or bascially any feelings i would express. This led to me eventually starting the break up/get back together cycle. That lasted around 5 months, so based on the person I know she is, i began to suspect she might be hiding something from me. there were tiny clues, little loose ends, i would see, she would get defensive about messaging certain people, there was another dude in NY that she was also 'dating' but long distance, other simps and dudes around our town who were always close to call upon and utilize for her. No productive conversation came of most of the things i expressed though i must say im bad at expressing things like that so alot of times i just got mad and then an argument then i would say something mean or cold and then that was the focus and we never fixed the problem. She does onlyfans fulltime and if u know the workings of that its way more than onlyfans, its instagram, twitter, sextpanther, manyvids, fetlife, throne, reddit...all of it, so she never wasnt working even when she wasnt active online that day everything she does is for that, her main motivation every day was to get pretty and show strangers her pussy n stuff, and get suggestions for tasks and punishments and such. I took it all with a grain of salt and let the punches roll to the best of my ability until she would do some new blatantly disrespectful thing like send me to her profile with gifs of her ex fucking her in her back yard at the top of the page. So at least once a week for about five months i would break up with her and leave and then come back when i calmed down a day or so later. i suspect she slept with people on those times but i only ever got proof of one time. this would be the break up before the real break up so essentially about two weeks ago, i drove to another state to retrieve her car because our mutual friend had gotten arrested in it and if i didnt go get it it would be towed. so i went and got it to show her im there for her hoping to get back together. we sat in her car for a while and talked and i happened to open her glove compartment and noticed two polaroids of her and this black fellow fucking, using our spreader bar. crushed. i was so hurt i couldnt stand it. So we eventually talk and i start thinking that someone had to take the pictures i saw and realize it was my best friend, so i ask did u fuck him too? she says no. okay, sure. some time later that day were riding with a friend to another part of town and she hands me her phone to plug into the charger, i couldnt resist, i opened the photos app in her phone and theres a video of her blowing my best friend. i almost threw it out the window, but i threw it back to her instead. now for the sake of transparency, i have been abusive, not like beat her up abusive, but abusive, on one occasion she punched me first no excuse but its what happened, as well as during one argument i was going to leave and shes begging me to stay and she said she would do anything so i told her to blow me and she did, I felt horrible for it so i stopped it i was slut shaming her essentially, so she could argue i had done those things leading up to her doing what i saw in the pictures and video. now this all happened three days after we had broken up. just three days. its why it was so hard to see. so i tried to forgive her, tried to over look this behavior that proved all i had been thinking up to this point. and i couldnt, my pride and my heart were hurting while i stayed with her, so i left, and came back that night and i realized i dont love her, i dont love myself, and i dont want to be here listening to anything she has to say anymore. so i left, it was a fight getting out the door but i did leave finally. she hates me probably and i dont really think about her too much, im recovering from constant gaslighting and im working on getting my anger back in control because she brought something out of me i never knew was there. i never knew i could be such a huge asshole. i did things i thought i would never do. it sucks because nothing between us will ever be okay again and she was my friend, previous to this we had been through some rough times together and has relied upon one another readily. i just hope she can one day accept responsibility for her actions and be real with herself about who she is.

2023.05.29 14:01 ThrowRAogyedmxx My (24F) husband (23M) changed after getting married

Hi! I hope everyone is doing well.
So we've been together for 2.5 years, married for one and we have a cute baby girl of 2 months.
When we first met 4 years ago he was a much more joyful person and one of the characteristics I admired was his optimism and sense that he could conquer the world. He also trusted God deeply which calmed me. It was unrealistic at times, but at least he seemed happy. He always struggled with his self-esteem though and, granted, he never hid that from me.
However, after getting married all this optimism vanished, especially after I got pregnant. He talks on and on about a well-payed job he didn't get (he went to the last stage of interviews, but they didn't call him at the end) and that he needs to find a high-paying job to support our family. It seems he thinks he needs to do this alone when I'm more than willing to work as I have in the past. I've been looking for remote work in order to stay with our child, avoid putting her in daycare and he knows this!
He also has upcoming interviews and physical tests, but he already has this mentality that he won't get the job, just like he didn't last time. I'm his wife so obviously I'm biased, but he is an extraordinary person and everyone sees it except him. He's charming, well-spoken and intelligent. People are naturally drawn to him. He started a new job (not as high-paying as the other) in February and his colleagues already want him to stay there and he only can if he goes through those series of interviews.
He also compares himself constantly to our friends and thinks he is in some kind of competition with them, when he is the only one who sees it as such. For the record, we have a really good life for people our age, even though in our friend group there are others who are better off than us. We are living in my mother's vacant apartment and we only pay the bills, no rent, so we are very well off. He is ashamed that we are being helped by so many people though... "If it wasn't for others' compassion, we'd be in a terrible situation." Well then, thank God and those people for helping us, don't be ashamed, right?
It's really frustrating because he has what it takes, but consistently sabotages himself by not trying or giving up too easily. All his life he has been told that talent was enough and he has never had to try to accomplish anything he wanted. Of course, the job market, heck, life is different and you need to work hard to get what you want. I've talked about this unrealistic expectation of him and he just seems to think that because life is unfair, it's better to give up at the start.
Finally, our sex life has been struggling and it's clearly taking a toll on him. After I got pregnant, I just didn't feel like doing anything at all. The first trimester, I felt disgusting, the second was alright and we did do it a couple of times, the third I was with back pain or there were logistical problems due to the size of the belly and we didn't do it much. Now, post-partum, I'm still waiting for the appointment and, of course, we have put it on hold. I honestly don't really feel like doing it since there is a baby constantly glued to me either breastfeeding or wanting comfort. We're young and I understand he has his needs, so it feels like I'm a shitty person for denying him for so long.
Most of all, I did not expect him to go on a rampage towards God. His mother died after battling cancer and now he completely despises Him. His anger is completely understandable and I can see where it comes from. I can't imagine losing my mother with our age, but it seems he says terrible things about Jesus in order to hurt anyone who believes in Him. I do and so it hurts. It's fine if he stops believing, but he shouldn't mock those who do. In my own house, I find myself avoiding mentioning any religion whatsoever over fear of upsetting him. I stopped praying in front of him even and maybe that's my own fault. I don't know...
Sorry for the whole wall of text and thank you for reading. What can I do to help him? My parents divorced and I absolutely do not want to make my child go through the same as I did. So, communication is the only answer here. My question goes more in the general direction of what can I say to him that will encourage him to strive forward? What can I do to help his self-esteem?
TL;DR husband has unrealistic expectations of life and has changed after marriage and I want to help him get back on track to the happier person he used to be.

2023.05.29 14:01 Hour-Virus2342 Arab Hyperloop AHL - The crypto project taking the market by Storm!

I want to start by saying that I have never been into a project growing this quickly. The community is amazing, the chart/mcap compared to the age of the token speak for themselves.
The Arabian peninsula, especially the UAE and Saudi Arabia, are already rolling out some of the world´s most futuristic cities. A 4,500 km long infrastructure, allowing for 165 million passengers to travel by Hyperloop every year, while saving the atmosphere from 368 million tonnes of CO2, complements the current urban planning .
Under the initiative, Riyadh would become a transportation hub connecting cities such as Jeddah, and the UAE capital Abu Dhabi, with Virgin Hyperloop pods capable of carrying groups of 25 passengers comfortably at speeds of 1,000 km per hour.
Arab Hyper Loop Token is the official partner of this project and will not only act as a pure investor, but will also establish a payment option with cryptocurrency. In addition, for every tonne of CO2 saved, a certain percentage of Arab Hyperloop cryptocurrency are invested in new technologies to support carbonization progress.
The system would also allow for safer social distancing, thanks to the small group sizes, lack of frequent stops, and adaptive artificial intelligence, which would allow for additional pods to be added, as necessary.
Usage of tokenized assets
A big benefit is given in time-, location- or event-based conversions between different assets represented by the various types of Hyperloop tokens, like the case of:
- Suspension of a Hyperloop route: Option to convert “Distance Token X” to “Taxi Token Y”
- Train delay: Subsidized conversion of distance tokens to hotel tokens or subsidized supply of food vouchers
- Advertisement: Airdrop of vouchers for specific events at specific locations
- These conversions could be offered automatically, based on specific parameters which would - trigger the clauses programmed in a set
of interdependent smart contracts.
Total supply:
Burn: 500.000.000 (50%) Liquidty: 250.000.000 (25%)
Exchange: 100.000.000 (10%)
Marketing: 100.000.000 (10%)
Early Investors: 50.000.000 (5%)
Buy: 0 %
Sell: 5 % auto reflection to all Holder 3%
auto Liquidty generator (benefit System 2%)

2023.05.29 14:01 AutoModerator weekly opinion pool

this is a post where one can put their current opinion of how the story is going, what should be added, taken away, or just to tell me i am bad at writing.
you can also put in requests for new metals, alloys, gases, ect. but you must put in the properties of the new element and where it could be found.

comments involving adding or removing a story element, requires you to put the reason for doing so.
