2023.06.09 09:44 ZucchiniRelative3182 Annualised teaching load

I work in an independent school.
They have a notoriously high staff turnover, have a repressive HR team, and frequently breach our EBA.
They refuse to hire CRT’s. Due to sudden resignations, maternity leave, and a few other issues, the school has a deficit of teachers in my faculty.
Three staff are currently being asked to take on an additional class to help cover the deficit for term three. The classes will be removed in term 4. These staff are fully loaded up, but have been told by HR that they’re technically “underalloted” and must take the class. The class will taken off theThe way the school has argued their case, is that their annualised load, meaning their total teaching minutes across the year, comes in under the maximum number of minutes.
The IEU is useless, especially our organiser, so we’re struggling to work out how this works exactly.
Does anyone have any experience with “annualised” loads? It seems like an arcane way for the school to bend rules and get what it wants.

This is how my Saturn V from MARSTOY turned out.
This is how my Saturn V from Marstoy turned out. Picture isn't great as it was hard to get a good angle and I'm not fully awake yet.😆 Mostly good build as mentioned previously I had a few brick explosions along the way. The internal red pieces were terrible quality with no grip. The other bricks were mostly fine. I had to put a lot of pressure on certain parts to get them to fit together. I had to take out two pieces to get the middle module to attach to the bottom one smoothly. But they still come apart properly like they should. It came with lander and raft also. I had to remove two tiny pieces when building the lander as they were the wrong pieces but it could be that I mixed them up with similar pieces along the way. I'd give the brick quality a 7/10 as got a bit mad with those red pieces. I'd give the build experience a 7/10 again due to the red pieces and the look of the final product a 10/10. Cost around 30 euro and another 30 for postage. I would buy it again.

I understand the sentiment on annoying body spammers now.
I know how to deal with it as you can see from rounds 1-4. Round 5 he started to run around in circles. I did the classic quick power jab and let him run and not chase. I'd occasionally cut off and echange. When i lost round 5 even though i was sure i landed more, i lost composure. I started crowding him to try and land some combos to knock him out and that explains the rest of the rounds. I'm not good at following up on a staggered enemy. That's why i like Wilder, his heavy punches are risky but you can often get a flash knock out/down if you can land it. This is pretty much the only reason I won this one. Last round flash knock down was super satisfying. I don't often see guys like this though.

The tilting screen on my Coolpix B700 doesn't seem to be working as it should. Any way to fix?
My camera hasnt been dropped or damaged. There may be a small amount of sand in certain parts of the camera but nothing substantial. Everything else about the camera works fine including the lens/zoom, it's just that when I move the tilting screen around, the image remains fixed rather than changing in regards to how I should be seeing it (when it's upside down, the image stays upside down) . I should add that the screen does change only at one point when I bring the screen out slightly, and it becomes a mirror image.
I've included some pics for reference. Is there any way of rectifying this using the camera features or is it a case of shipping it off for repairs/trying DIY repair on it? New battery perhaps?
It's not a huge deal but if I plan to sell it in the next few years, I don't know if someone would class this as a major flaw.

2023.06.09 09:43 porker912 Reminder: Politics is not just about making "deals"

Mostly when I hear people talk politics in EDH it's goes something along the lines of, "If you do X for me, then I will do Y for you", and this betrays not only a naivety as to how politics are handled in the real world during wartime, but a lack of imagination as to how you can leverage the social elements of EDH. So here are a few ways that you can play the political game in EDH without being so explicit:
  1. Maintain the tables understanding of the current board state. EDH is a complex game and not every player will recognize the brewing threats you might. By discussing the pieces that enter the table, or spells like tutors and card draw that have been cast, as well as their potential consequences, you can ensure that people will better assess your other opponents threats. Of course, this is propaganda, and so while you will also need to maintain the tables awareness of your board in order to be successful, you can downplay your board and threats, simply stating what each piece explicitly does, but giving no further hint as to how they fit into your plan over the next turns. At minimum, this helps players not to clearly bugger their threat assessment, but the potential to influence the table in small ways here can be very effective.
  2. Bide your time. The Rusty nail gets the hammer, or something. Basically, weigh your options before advancing your board state. Has 0 removal or interaction been played yet and people have left mana open? Maybe just play your extra ramp, leave up some interaction, and wait for someone else to be the first lamb to the slaughter. There is a certain smell in the air before shit goes down so it can help to wait for the right moment.
  3. Ask questions. This goes along similar lines as 1, but asking your opponents questions can do a lot to direct your other opponents aggression. How many cards have you drawn? How many times have you tutored? Is that a combo piece? Do you run this combo? Your opponents can answer truthfully, or they can lie, or they can refuse to answer, and all three options carry the possibility of them drawing aggro. At best, they effectively downplay everything, which is part of the game, but having the answer come from your opponent can be huge as asking questions is a pretty neutral thing to do at the table.
What other non-explicit ways have you found to approach politics in EDH?

2023.06.09 09:43 W4rdogSp4in Lian Li o11d eXhaLe Mod

The goal of this mod is to improve the thermal behavior of the case Lian Li o11d XL acting on air intake and exhaust as well.

· Making clearence of the case bottom although taking care of not affecting the setup of the removable fan tray.
· Replacement of the metal side and front panel for Adam Hall U-Shaped Ventilation Rack Panels borne and attached to the case with rectangular neodymium bar magnets with double sided adhesive and magnetic tape self adhesive.
Note: To cover the PSU is necessary to cut partially one side of the rack at least.




· Replacement of the top panel for a Lian Li o11d Evo front mesh kit. It´s necessary to cut a pair of rods in order to fit correctly, just those ones encircled in blue.
· The rest of the top of the case is covered with tailor-made sheets by aluminium carpentry and fixed with magnetic tape self adhesive.



These rack panels allow screw different hardware components admitting:
· Rack 2U up to 3 SSD vertically placed.
· Rack 3U up to 3x120mm fans, 240/360mm AIO´s and in terms of storage, 2 HDD or 5 SSD horizontally placed being necessary to cut partially one or two of the rack´s side to plug them in.


Finally, I put my RTX 3070 intake deshroud mod at the front because separating gpu from the cpu is a good way of getting lower temperatures admitting up to 40cm (15,75in) lenght gpu fixed to the rack by L brackets.
So, a PCIe 4.0 x16 60cm (23,6in) extension cable to connect gpu to motherboard and enlarging a cable lead-through hole case is compulsory. It´s desirable the use of flexible HDMI/DP extensión cables to make easier the manipulation of case.




I leave some tests showing how much the cpu and gpu temperature decreases under stress, about 10º and 3º respectively in comparison with original panels.

Original panels Gpu at front 2x140mm Up + 2x140mm bottom

Mesh panels horizontal gpu 2x140mm at front + 2x140mm bottom + rear 1x120mm

And here hard disks temperatures.

2023.06.09 09:43 AffectionateCicada91 Fuck this shit.

Had been about 14 hours since my last dose so withdrawals were setting in pretty badly. I snort my shit and whenever I'm in withdrawal I can't stop sneezing. So after I finally meet my plug and snort one, I immediately throw up and can't stop sneezing/sharting/ yawning while I'm throwing up in my fucking car. Jesus I can't keep doing this shit. Idk how the fuck I can get off of these. While I was waiting for my plug I was kicking around with restless legs and could not stop my eyes from tearing up. And I don't mean a little water in the eyes, I'm talking full on streams of tears flowing down my face but I'm not crying. Just annoying ass tears. I finally got enough bkues in me to feel better but idk how I can sustain this shit .

2023.06.09 09:42 Hardyz1000 making a new channel due to bullies? or keep old one?

Hey everyone, during 2020 when covid hit, i decided to start uploading recipes and training videos and eventually some of my videos started gaining viewers 50k views on some vids and 10k on others and honestly i was mindblown when i saw this happening so fast. Some how during my final year of school, people found out about these videos and people quickly became bullies about it taking screenshots of my fav or posting rude comments on my youtube videos which might put people off when finding my channel. i shouldnt of taken time off but i decided to take a year off because i was really depressed from it and i now realise i shouldnt let others effect me but my views have gone down so much i cant even get 20 views. Tbh i did this out of love of making videos, so i dont mind views but im worried those stupid trolls still keep harrasing me form school and want to just start fresh. im only at 300 subs but should i keep uploading or start fresh on a new channel? thank you.

2023.06.09 09:42 enmojoe How can I set myself challenges during a trip for therapeutic benefit (ocd)?

I read somewhere about someone who set himself goals for trips with higher dosage, like being in defined body positions for the whole experience or similar things with the goal to develope himself and strengthen his willpower and the shrooms would realize, that he was doing this for developement for himself and not to fight the shooms and then support him with it.
I used shooms just once till now and didn't set myself goals exept getting to know how they effect me. I kinda came to the conclusion that I do not really need to find deep knowledge about myself, that indeed I only need two things: first is to practice letting go and deciding on myself what to think or not to think about and that overanalyzing about every little detail would just be feeding my ocd more than necessary and second is to get active and the first point actually is the biggest reason why I would not get active. I would even describe myself as having some sort of overanalyzing ocd, I always tend to go down the rabbit whole and need to analyze things down to thousands and thousands of absolutely unnecessary little details, about just every question or lose myself super monothematic and deal with just one or two topics in my mind over several months. I already did analyze myself to a super exaggerated extend in the past. Could I set myself a challenge similar to this "staying in... body position", but with the goal to not think just anything during a trip as therapeutic challenge with the intend to practice letting go and the shrooms would help me also at higher dosage with this because they'd realize that I don't fight them or particular thoughts, but just want this for developement and learn to not overanalyze and let go and fight ocd? Is that idea a good and working approach for my problems or rather not?

2023.06.09 09:41 thatonefriendwhodies [TOMT][VIDEO][2010-2023] Looking for a short video of a cat, possibly a kitten, meowing at it's owner and the owner meows back. The meow sounds like "nyahhh" in a raspy tone that reminds me of a 1940's robber saying "stick 'em up, see, nyahh". Vocaroo included

Okay so this is a video I've seen a few times and me and my friend have started saying nyahhh to each other in this particular voice for a while, I found out she hasn't seen the video so I've been trying to find it.
It's a cat, possibly a kitten, meowing at their owner and the owner is meowing back. The meow sounds more like nyahh or meeeh in a raspy tone that honestly makes me think of a stereotypical robber from the 1940's saying "Stick em up see, nyahh" The video is short and I have seen it on Instagram a few times and also on Youtube in cat videos.
I can't believe I actually sat down to record a vocaroo of me meowing for this, but that is how desperately I need to find this video again hahahah

2023.06.09 09:41 1kelpy Has anyone else noticed that the P7P's display is extremely fragile?

I would just like to start off by saying I had an iPhone 13 with no case for a year and it never cracked. Dropped it countless times, and even fell down half a flight of stairs. No cracks, no damage. I've taken pretty good care of all my phones, and this is the first time in 3 years I've ever had to file an insurance claim on my phone.
I have had to replace my Pixel 7 Pro through T-Mobile's insurance 2 times, and 1 time through warranty since I got it on launch day, and I am now on my 4th P7P, which is also no longer working (I will not be getting another one after this). I keep my phone in my Spigen case, and it is still the most fragile phone I have ever owned.
The first one fell onto concrete from about 4 feet, and hit the corner of a stair. Picked it up and the display had green lines all over it. $99 later, I got it replaced.
The second one randomly turned black after a drop onto carpet. The phone was still on, but the display and touchscreen did not respond. The glass also started separating from the display. This was ruled as a hardware defect, and I received a new one for free.
The third one was dropped from my desk and hit the base of my swivel chair. Front glass was shattered, and the display would not respond. Another $99, another phone.
Now we get to my 4th P7P, and this is what made me think something was up with these phones. My phone fell off a desk from about 2.5 feet onto a linoleum floor, with the case on. The screen has several cracks starting from the corner which hit the floor, and the touchscreen is not responsive. Now I'm going to have to spend another $99 on ANOTHER Pixel just to turn it in and upgrade early, because I'm not dealing with this again.

2023.06.09 09:40 pastelpinkpotato Health Anxiety - Where do I start?

Hi! I'm 24F, currently living independently away from the province. I've been struggling with health anxiety features since 2020 but it became much worse last year after a major health issue I encountered. Apologies for the length, but I appreciate your patience. Any comments are much welcome.
TL;DR: I'm a 24-year-old woman living independently, dealing with health anxiety that has worsened after a major health issue last year. I underwent unexpected surgery and a six-month medication for a cancer scare, with physical recovery at 90% but mental struggles persisting. Anxiety triggers my GERD and vice versa, leading to sleepless nights and fear of death. I have dextroscoliosis, hyperacidity, and a recent diagnosis of hiatal hernia. Seeking help for persistent back pain, neck pressure, and nerve tingling, unsure where to start. Considering a neurologist for a brain scan or a psychiatrist for mental health support. Financial difficulties add to the challenges. Open to guidance and recommendations.
Just a background, I already struggle with a couple of conditions through the years: *have dextroscoliosis since I was 14 *have hyperacidity, recently diagnosed with hiatal hernia (Feb 2023)
Everything went down last August 2022 when I experienced chest pain at work and was rushed to the ER. While my ECG was normal, I was advised to undergo a chest MRI due to my dextroscoliosis. Surprisingly, my spine was found to be stable, but the scan revealed a 4cm mediastinal mass near my thymus gland. Initially suspected as thymoma, a type of cancer, I sought a second opinion and consulted a thoracic cardiovascular surgeon. The TCVS specialist believed it was likely a benign tumor but advised against a direct biopsy due to its delicate location. Consequently, we opted for surgery in September. During the procedure, the tumors were successfully removed, and a frozen section indicated tuberculosis (TB) as the cause. As the remaining cysts were benign, they were also excised. After two weeks of hospitalization, a second biopsy confirmed the tuberculosis diagnosis, and I was referred to the TB program for treatment.
Surprisingly, my TB was almost asymptomatic, with only occasional chest pain as the noticeable symptom. It's alarming to realize that the virus can manifest in such a manner. I have been diligently took my prescribed medication for 6 months but I have struggled with the harsh side effects. The initial two weeks were particularly challenging, as I was recovering from surgery while enduring the medication-induced vomiting, body pain, and fatigue. Additionally, the post-surgery pills caused severe acid reflux. While sputum accompanied by acid was common, I experienced blood in my sputum once, but the doctor reassured me that it was normal. I also experienced excessive hypersalivation for three weeks, likely due to stress and anxiety, but that has subsided after a recent follow-up checkup. Overall, I underwent significant physical, mental, and emotional distress.
In March 2023, I completed my TB medication, but unfortunately, it had a negative impact on my gastrointestinal health. To address my worsening condition, I underwent an endoscopy in February 2023 while still on my TB medication. The results revealed that I have a Level 3 Hiatal Hernia and Non-erosive Gastritis. Fortunately, I tested negative for H. pylori infection and received clearance from Barrett's esophagus, stomach ulcers, and other potential diagnoses. My doctor prescribed Pantoprazole 40mg for 30 days, and since then, I have noticed a significant reduction in acid reflux and heartburn.
It is worth mentioning that during the past seven months, I have been admitted to the emergency room four times due to mistaking severe heartburn for a heart attack. These experiences have heightened my health anxiety to some extent.
Currently, I am no longer taking any medication, but I am facing challenges with persistent back pain, pressure in the upper neck, and nerve tingling. I recently had an X-ray and consulted with my orthopedic specialist, who attributed my symptoms to overwork and recommended starting physical therapy within two weeks.
However, things have worsened since then. Over the past five days, my sleep pattern has been extremely disrupted. I manage to sleep, but it's far from the restful slumber I am accustomed to. On workdays, I am grateful for just three hours of sleep. Last night was particularly difficult as I couldn't sleep at all until 7 AM. I constantly feel a sensation of choking and suffocation, even without any apparent trigger. Although my blood pressure and pulse rate are normal, I can't shake the feeling that I might die the moment I fall asleep.
Sharing this here is incredibly difficult for me, and I humbly request your patience and understanding. I'm breaking down as I type this, to be honest. I am seeking guidance on where to seek help. Should I begin by consulting a neurologist for a brain scan, as I'm unsure if my discomfort and nerve tingling are related to neurological issues? Or would it be more appropriate to start with a psychiatrist? Additionally, I would appreciate any recommendations for reputable institutions or healthcare providers, as I am currently facing financial challenges due to medical expenses incurred last year.
Thank you for taking the time to read my message. I am grateful for your support, and I extend my best wishes to everyone for their well-being and recovery.

2023.06.09 09:39 elisaz91 GERD experiences - need help!

Hi folks! My baby is 4mo and has been diagnosed with GERD. At birth she spent one month in the hospital because she vomited every single meal and wasn't growing - she's still very tiny, in the 3%. Medicine is helping a lot (esomeprazol) but we are still struggling and I wanted to ask GERD parents for advice on two issues: car rides and night sleeping.
-baby HATES car rides. She cries from the second she touches the car seat to the second she's out. We tried going on strolls on the car seat but nothing changes. She literally cries herself to vomit sometimes. I dread every single ride and i feel like crying myself LOL
-at night, when she wakes to eat (i nurse) she stays up for like an hour sometimes. She doesn't necessarily cry, but won't fall back asleep. I bounce her on a yoga ball and sometimes it helps, but not always. I am desperate as i don't sleep more than 5h a night and it's horrible.
It's being so hard. I am thankful i have another baby already which was super easy - if this would have been my first, i would be so traumatized. I have no idea how to make her stop crying most of the time. She only calms down in the carriesling, and mainly with me - dad keeps trying but she just cries like crazy. Definitely a high need baby, and I have no idea how to help her.
What's hard is that in theory reflux is being fixed (by medicine), and many of her issues might not be related to that (example: she is fine laying flat - she seems to hate only the car seat position).
If anyone went through something similar, i would highly appreciate tips!

2023.06.09 09:39 RepublicOfAviators Are there any PA state troopers here who wouldn't mind giving advice?

I am currently 21 and have lived in PA for pretty much all my life now. I have always looked up to law enforcement and I have decided recently that joining PSP is want I want to do with my life. Becoming a State Trooper would still be at least a few years away from me as I would have to get the appropriate degree but everyone starts somewhere.

Now to the questions.

What should I expect going down this path? Should I go for a 2 year associates degree? How difficult was the academy overall (PT and academics)? Would I have the same chances with a GED as someone with a Diploma or would I be looked down upon because I didn't take things as seriously when I was a kid?
I also live close by to one of the Troop stations, is it possible for me to walk in and ask for a tour of the building/patrol car? Or would that be considered unprofessional since a station is of course not just there for my enjoyment. I almost did this previously. I walked right into the station intending to ask about just what I had mentioned above only for there to be a few people who looked to be getting booked. I immediately walked out afterwards and thought to myself that asking for a tour of some sort would not have been appropriate.

Any and all responses are appreciated. Thank you!

2023.06.09 09:39 Steve_Fox_2000 ML Ethics and Compliance

ML Ethics and Compliance

Overview of ethical considerations in ML development, best practices for ethical ML development, compliance considerations for ML systems.
Machine learning (ML) has the potential to transform industries, improve processes, and provide solutions to complex problems. However, as with any powerful technology, ethical considerations and compliance requirements must be considered. The ethical implications of machine learning are vast, and the development of ethical machine learning systems is crucial to ensure they are used for good. This article will explore moral considerations in ML development, best practices for ethical ML development, and compliance considerations for ML systems.

Ethical Considerations in ML Development

Developing ethical machine learning systems is essential to ensure they benefit society and do not cause harm. So let's consider some ethical issues that need to be taken into account during the development of ML systems:

Bias:Machine learning algorithms are only as unbiased as the data they are trained on. The resulting algorithm will also be biased if the training data contains preferences. This issue can lead to unfair decisions and perpetuate discrimination. Therefore, it is essential to identify and remove biases from the training data to ensure the fairness of the ML system.
Privacy: Machine learning algorithms often use personal data to make decisions. It is essential to ensure that the data is collected, stored, and used ethically and that the privacy of the individuals is protected.
Transparency: ML algorithms can be complex, and understanding how they arrive at a decision is often difficult. It is essential to make the decision-making process transparent so a user can understand how the system arrived at a particular conclusion.
Accountability and Liability: The deployment of ML systems can significantly impact individuals and society. Determining accountability and liability in cases of errors, biases, or unintended consequences can be challenging. As ML systems become more autonomous, the question of who is responsible for their actions becomes crucial. Developing frameworks that establish clear lines of accountability and liability is essential for addressing ethical concerns and providing recourse for individuals affected by ML system outcomes.

Best Practices for Ethical ML Development

To develop ethical machine learning systems, developers must follow best practices that ensure the system is fair, transparent, and accountable. Here are some best practices for ethical ML development:

Diversity: It is essential to ensure the development team is diverse, representing different backgrounds and perspectives. It allows for the identification and removal of biases from the system.
Data Quality: High-quality data is crucial for ethical machine learning development. The data should be representative, diverse, and unbiased.
Model Interpretability: Unfortunately, the inherent complexity of some ML models can make them challenging to interpret and explain. This lack of interpretability can lead to mistrust and skepticism from users, regulatory bodies, and society as a whole. Understanding the decision-making process of ML systems is crucial for ensuring transparency, accountability, and ethical usage. Developing model interpretability and explainability techniques is an ongoing challenge that requires bridging the gap between accuracy and clarity. In order to make the system transparent, it is crucial to ensure that the model is easily interpretable. It means that the decision-making process should be understandable to non-experts.
Regular Audits: Machine learning algorithms can change over time, and it is essential to regularly audit the system to ensure that it remains fair and unbiased.
Ethical Education and Awareness: Building a culture of ethics and compliance in the ML field requires educating and raising awareness among developers, organizations, and end-users. A lack of understanding of ethical considerations, biases, and compliance requirements can hinder ML systems' responsible development and usage. Encouraging interdisciplinary collaboration, promoting ethical training programs, and fostering open discussions on the societal impacts of ML is essential to overcome this challenge.

Compliance Considerations for ML Systems

Compliance considerations are also crucial when developing machine learning systems. Organizations must ensure their ML systems comply with relevant laws and regulations. Here are some compliance considerations for ML systems:

Data Privacy: Organizations must comply with regulations of data privacy, among them the California Consumer Privacy Act (CCPA) and the General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR). It means that before collecting and using individuals' data, one needs to obtain their consent and ensure that it is secure and protected.
Fair Lending: Have you heard aboutthe Equal Credit Opportunity Act (ECOA)? It prohibits lenders from discriminating based on race, ethnicity, religion, sex, marital status, age, or national origin. Machine learning systems used in lending must comply with this regulation and ensure that the decision-making process is fair and unbiased.
Health Regulations: Machine learning systems used in healthcare needs to comply with regulations such as the Health Insurance Portability and Accountability Act (HIPAA). So it means they must ensure the privacy and security of patient data and obtain consent before using it.
Balancing Ethical Considerations with Performance: There can be a trade-off between incorporating strict ethical considerations and achieving optimal performance in ML systems. For instance, fine-tuning models to minimize biases may lead to a decrease in accuracy. Striking the right balance between fairness, accuracy, and utility is a complex challenge. It requires continuous research, experimentation, and optimization techniques to ensure that ethical considerations are not compromised while maintaining system performance.


The field of ML ethics and compliance is relatively new, and regulations are continuously evolving. Staying up-to-date with changing legal and regulatory frameworks can be challenging for organizations developing ML systems. In addition, compliance requirements differ across industries and jurisdictions, making it necessary to have dedicated teams and processes to monitor and adapt to new regulations.

So, machine learning systems' ethical considerations and compliance requirements are complex and challenging. However, hiring an AI consulting company can overcome these challenges effectively.

2023.06.09 09:39 Ok_Opportunity_8102 Connections Between Blade and Saga

If they wanted to make X stuff fit somehow (and whilst I absolutely wouldn't appreciate it in any way shape or form), I could imagine them very easily redoing X but completely erasing Elma, instead replacing her for KOS-MOS, which makes sense anyway given how her design themes are based on KOS-MOS. To make the alien stuff work, it could still make sense if KOS-MOS becomes aware of the war between Ganglion and Ghosts whilst falling through space to Earth. That way you could say that aliens were simply never present in Xenosaga but still exist within the Xenoblade universe.
Instead of having Elma arrive on Earth before the war to upgrade Earth's technology, have KOS-MOS take that position. Instead of Elma picking up super mechanic child genius Lin for no real reason, have Lin or her family be the ones to find KOS-MOS when she lands or crashes down onto Earth and fix her up, with Lin eventually becoming a stand in for Shion. And you could easily replace Elma for KOS-MOS as the pilot of the Ares based on the Ares' weaponry alone. It matches up so easily.
