Essential Tips for Solo Travelers Who Love Exploring International Destinations
If you are someone who loves a good adventure to an unknown international destination, solo travelling is an incredible option for you. Getting the chance to immerse yourself in different cultures, food and discover new perspectives creates a joyful feeling of excitement and gives a sense of independence.
However, before you set off on your journey, it's essential to be well-prepared and informed.
In this article, we will guide you through the essential things to consider when planning your solo travel adventure, with a special focus on international tour packages. So, get ready to uncover the key factors.
Research and Choose Reliable International Tour Packages
When planning your solo trip, it's essential to opt for reputable international tour packages. These packages often include accommodation, transportation, and guided tours, providing a structured itinerary for your adventure. Thoroughly research various packages, read reviews, and compare prices to find the one that suits your needs and budget. Pay attention to the services included and ensure they align with your travel preferences.
Prioritise Safety and Security
Safety should be a top priority when travelling alone, particularly in unfamiliar international destinations. Before departure, research the safety situation in your chosen destination and take necessary precautions accordingly. Register your trip with your country's embassy or consulate, share your itinerary with family or friends, and ensure you have travel insurance that covers medical emergencies and other unforeseen situations. Additionally, keep a copy of important documents, such as your passport and visa, and be cautious with your belongings, especially in crowded places. Trust your instincts and avoid risky situations to maintain your personal security.
Learn about Local Customs and Etiquette
Understanding and respecting the local customs and etiquette of your destination is crucial for smooth and culturally sensitive interactions. Research and learn about the local customs, traditions, and social norms beforehand. This will help you connect with locals and avoid unintentional cultural misunderstandings. Dress appropriately, be aware of local customs regarding greetings and gestures, and familiarise yourself with any cultural taboos or sensitive topics. By demonstrating cultural sensitivity, you'll not only enhance your travel experience but also leave a positive impression on the locals.
Stay Connected and Communicate
When travelling alone to an international destination, it's important to stay connected with family, friends, and fellow travellers. Ensure you have a reliable means of communication, such as a local SIM card or an international roaming plan. Use travel apps to stay updated on local information and connect with other travellers or expats in the area. Additionally, inform your loved ones about your whereabouts and establish regular check-ins. Being connected will not only provide a sense of security but also help you seek assistance or recommendations if needed.
Wrapping Up
Embarking on a solo adventure to an international destination can be an incredibly enriching experience. By carefully selecting reliable international tour packages, prioritising safety, respecting local customs, and staying connected, you can ensure a smooth and memorable journey. Solo travel allows you to embrace independence, broaden your horizons, and create lasting memories that will stay with you long after you return home.

2023.06.09 10:04 skullywullyy Recent sinusitis diagnosis and needing tips

Hello! I recently got told I had a diviated septum and spurs in my sinuses along with an infection which was about a month ago now. My current symptoms for my sinuses is: Congestion, extreme head and facial pressure (hurts to even wash my face), headaches and dizziness, ringing ears and nausea along with some vision issues, trouble breathing through my nose and in general. Is it possible with sinusitis to have these issues without having a runny nose? It's been going on for a month now and I have been given antibiotics from the ER because the headaches have been going on for a week now and they determined it was a sinus infection that hadn't gone away. I am still waiting to hear from the ENT that I was reffered to and was classed as a category 2 so I'm guessing it is fairly serious. I just wanted other people's stories, symptoms and what they did to help them :) I have GAD and extreme health anxiety so it is causing me quite a bit of stress.

I need pictures of Genshin characters sitting, so I can photoshop 'em into the picture of a computer classroom. It's for assignment. I have no better ideas lol. Hope it's ok to ask here. Yes, as far as I'm aware this is allowed. Any character will do. I'm too lazy to search up myself. Just gimme screenshots, pictures, manga, comics pages, whatever you may have. Anything. If it's a bit goofy - GOOD. No worries, I'll cut them out myself.

2023.06.09 10:03 Bright_Initial [OG] - Diavolo's Parents

Alright gang, this is something I was thinking about the other day, but what do y’all think about how the demon king looks and the type of relationship he has with Diavolo?
In the game, we don’t really know much about the demon king except for the fact that he was there when the brothers first fell down to the devildom and has been asleep ever since. I’ve always gotten the impression that Diavolo didn’t really have a good relationship with his father, mainly because of the lesson in OG where Diavolo opens about his childhood, which was honestly just depressing. I forgot what lesson this was, but Diavolo speaks about how his mother died giving birth to him and how his father was very harsh with him as a child, and he doesn’t know if that was because he was raising the future demon king or because he blamed Diavolo for the death of the one he loved more than anything.
Anyways, this got me thinking and personally I feel like Diavolo looks exactly like his mother. I think that he doesn’t really resemble his father and looks more like his mother, which is another reason why the demon king was harsh with Diavolo because he reminded him of her. It also makes me wonder what kind of person his mother was and whether she was also a demon or some other species, which might be another reason why Diavolo is really set on peace between the realms?
Anyways, just a thought! What do y’all think?

2023.06.09 10:03 willworkforfood999 What website/apps to use for short term rentals?

Hi all.
I plan on coming to Shanghai on June 23 and will stay for a little over a month. Based on previous posts here, I found that Smart Shanghai and and similar sites are what people use to find housing these days for short term stays. I wonder if this is still true or if there are some other sites that people use.
I'm basically looking for a place that has good stable wifi, a desk and chair, good location (close to restaurants and public transportation, and under 6000 RMB per month if possible (~200 rmb per day). Does anyone have any leads for me?
Additionally, is there anything I should look out for in order to not get scammed? I assume and similar are pretty safe and reliable, but I don't know anything about Smart Shanghai. Is it similar to Craigslist? Or is more like Airbnb?

2023.06.09 10:03 wordswithoutmusic Oliveira: "The accidents in the start season? It's not fault of the format"

After a troubled start to the championship Miguel Oliveira is ready to go back in riding his Aprilia RS-GP, on the track of Mugello. The first race for the Portuguese after shoulder injury left suffered in Jerez, which held him away from the track in the Le Mans Round
"I feel good. I've had five weeks to recover, which are not many to get here 100%, but I hope are enough to mount and check my condition: you can try to brake at more than 300 km/h only when returning By motorbike. The team wants it to be fully restored and competitive, so i will take more time if should I see that the shoulder will prevent me to do what they asked me, just in case contrary I will go on to address the weekend," explained the team manager RNF extension.
One of the worst weekends for re-enter, considering the difficulties of a demanding track like that of Mugello.
"That's true, but it's not me who chooses Even the Sachsenring is not the best for the left side of the body, which is proper the one where I got injured at shoulder, I'll still give my all"ha commented Miguel, convinced he had enough strength in the shoulder, per face the Tuscan ups and downs: "I'm here pilots thinner than me - he joked - Obviously I couldn't train as I usually did, especially for regarding the top of the body, because I can only do a few push-ups, I'm not a 100% pilot, but I hope it will go well"
The team director, Wilco Zeelenberg, is said worried about how he is going the season, since Oliveira is not The only rider to have already been injured twice. The person concerned, however, does not if he feels like criticizing the new format of the MotoGP weekend as far as it is success so far.
"I analyzed my every fall, including the two occasions I have injured and I think there is nothing for which I can blame the system for what happened - explained Miguel I don't think you can blame the Sprints Race for the accidents that there have been, also because most of the accidents occurred on Sunday I can only emphasize the fact that with the Sprint Race riders approach the race on Sunday having already in mind what to do or where to go and think this generates some overexcitement in the first rounds, It is not however a question of a aspect that i can't blame or what can in some way retain its the_cause, I like this system.
"We are all very fast, we all have the same devices and we all leave more or less at the same instant, because It all depends on your reaction time lights, which can vary by one or two tenths. We are all close and there is no way that someone can make a big one difference right now. That's all very tight and I believe it is treated only of bad luck - he said - The Race Direction has nothing to do with it with accidents, because I don't think so just that the decisions of the Stewards they may have to do with the aggressiveness of the pilots. I do not think someone behaves more aggressive, because the Stewards do not sanction or why they should".
"It was an exaggeration in my opinion. I don't think he should be penalized, and I was the victim in that case - he admitted Oliveira - This is how I see it I, but I am neither a judge nor God to be able to tell the absolute truth. Each one has its own interpretation. It's normal And the Stewards are also nothing but three people deciding, This is the reality"
It would be necessary to reduce the risks convince pilots to keep a more conservative approach to Sunday?
"Everyone has their own approach. Now you have the opportunity to go to points where maybe you wouldn't have expected it, on the short distance, so everyone tries to take advantage of it, while on Sunday the mentality should be different because the race is longer and you don't have need to force as you have to do al Saturday. A lot of things have happened in these first five races, but I think we'll need a full season to get a clear picture of what we can get from the double race - commented the Aprilia rider - I don't see what we could do change the format or why. Would be certainly more convenient not to have the Qualifying on Friday, but in the end it is The same for everyone"

2023.06.09 10:03 Murky_Upstairs1420 AITA for not wanting to talk to my dad and stepmon until they apologize?

Hello, I am 19F and since August last year I don´´ t want to speak with my father anymore. The reason is a huge argument with him and my stepmom. It all begun when my brother(26) and I were visiting them. My parents are divorced since I was five. The first day was all fine, but then my dad said to me, that he is happy that I was 18 now, so he could pay the child support to my bank account instead to my mums. I asked him why and he answered that I was old enough to deal with the money. I told him, that I want my mum to get the money, because I still live at home and that money is used for the rent, food, clothes etc. He insisted that I would get the money so I said okay and told him I would transfer it to my mums bank account. He did not care about that.
He also told me, that he was only paying half of the child support he paid back then, beacuse he and his wife hadnt much money anymore and I was the one who was supposed to tell my mum. I felt uneasy becaue I wasnt sure how she would react, so I asked my dad to do that. He said that I was old enough to handle this. I didnt pressure into this anymore, because I didnt wanted to destroy that one weekend I saw him in a year.
On the next evening we went to a restaurant and after that we sat in their garden and talked and drank some beer. I was a little bit drunk, because I already had two cocktails at the restaurant. I live in Germany, so it was legal, that I drank alcohol while I was 18. Anyways, in the garden we ended up on the topic of his and mums divorce. Mum never told my silblings and me much about it, because it was a bad breakup und she didnt wanted us to have a bad opinion on our dad. Dad told alot of horrible things about my mum, like she was greedy and because of her he had alot of debts and that she was ceating on him, which I didn´t believe.
After that the real fight begun, as I told my dad, that I didnt like that I had to tell my mum and I asked how he came to the conclusion that he would only pay half of the child support. He than began to cry, so his wife spoke with me, which pissed me off so much, but I tried to stay calm. My step mum told me how terrible I was for fighting with them because of money and that my dad is feeling horrible. This resulted to me into feeling bad and crying because I didnt mean to make him feel like this. Somehow we came to speak about the past and I realised that I ignored a lot of neglecting from my dad.
The thing is, my dad was never really there after he got togehter with his wive. He moved to a city, which is quite far from my home. He moved so his wive doesnt had to move with her sons. So my dad technally priotized his stepsons over his children. That is one of the reasons why my sister(23) doesnt want to have any contact with him anymore. I just ignored that. Because of his move he didnt see us as often as he used to. Then on the first weekend my siblings and I slept by my dad a lot happend which caused me to dislike his wive and why my sister and I didnt wanted to visit him anymore.
My dad didnt even seemed to care, that my sis and I didnt wanted to see him. He never asked my mum or us about it. Then for years he only visited us once a years for about three hours and he called us on our birthdays and thats it. He only wanted more contact with us as soon as I was old enough to travel with the train to him. But then he said that he feels like he is only the money giver for us. This resulted in me getting angry with him, because he never really tried to be anything else. His wive complained to me, that dealing with me and my siblings was to stressful for him and that he really wished, that he could spend more time with us.
Now I am just done with giving him any chances. He never came to any event in our childhood and he didnt even came to my graduation which he said would. And then lastly it occured that, on the weekend my brother and I were visiting him, he gave me the extendet editon from all lord of the rings movies. He bought it with my mum when it came out. I was so happy about it because I love these movies and it was the first present I got from himver since I was about six or seven. Then after all the figths he asked my brother to tell me, that he wanted his movies back. I gave it to them, because I didnt want another fight. After every argument with him or his wive I ended up crying and my mum and sister had to comfort me. So I told them, that I want speak to them, until they apologize to me about everything that happend, because they hurt me. They said, they are not going to do that.
After Christmas and my birthday my dad and stepmum send letters and mails to me, how they hope that we can celebrate these days this year togehter. Ever since I started feeling bad about not wanting to talk with him until they apologize. My brother says I am an asshole for being so resentful, while my mum and sister are saying I am in the right. So AITA?

2023.06.09 10:03 jacqueifer Seventh Heaven - How I Finally Passed the Dubai RTA Test (Parking + Road) - A Few Tips, Tricks and Myths I Learned The Hard Way

Learning to drive - something perhaps I should have done at 18 (ample time but no car or money to learn) and at now at 36 you have the money to learn but no time. Like most working professionals in Dubai, our jobs are demanding so carving time out to learn needs to be well planned and fruitful.
If this post could do anything, I hope you can learn from my mistakes, so here goes:
  1. Picking Finance If you are a new driver (having never driven back home either) - take the unlimited/contract option with your driving school. It will cost nearly double the normal package but is worth it because you don't have the financial stress of paying more if you fail - I didn't think it would be this difficult to pass and I was wrong. In Dubai you need to complete 40 hours to take the test (split between parking and on road), for a new new driver this is simply not enough hours to build confidence (this is why you hear of so many stories of people repeating the test - in particular new drivers). To compare, in a Melbourne, Australia the minimum hours needed is 120.
  2. Picking a Driving Institution, pick wisely. Most people review the online comments to gauge how good a school is. The tip here is to talk to friends, family or colleagues that have passed out a particular branch/location. The opinion of the brands (EDI, DDC, Belhasa, Galadari) vary among people and I didn't find it an accurate measure but the branch is more important. I used Dubai Driving Institute in Al Quoz. Nice range of instructors but the location is a challenge. I will explain later in the post.
  3. Selecting a Driving Instructor in most cases you will be assigned a driving instructor. As a first time driver, you aren't going to know if your instructor is good or bad. What you should ask yourself after the four classes is - does this person spend a lot of time on their phone? Does this person stop my mistakes or does this person teach me how to do it correctly? The latter is more important. If you aren't learning, request for a change and don't be worried about what people will think - you are paying to be thought.
  4. Driving Institution Location - this is an important factor in where you learn to drive. Al Quoz is an industrial area filled with large trucks, commercial buses, vehicles and in general traffic at all times. To add to this you have drivers who aren't as courteous, will cut, will not signal, you have pedestrians crossing at undesignated areas, road cleaners and people moving on the wrong side of the road with their little scooters, cycles and mopeds. As a learning area, it reminds one a little of driving in India / Egypt. For a first time driver, perhaps there are easier routes to train in like the Dry Docks or DIP.
  5. Passing the Theory Test - really straight forward, complete the course and practice the mock exams theory + video scenario. There are a pool of about 300 odd questions, from which you get 40 (35 theory + 5 video scenarios) on your RTA exam. Only when you can consistently secure 90% plus on the mock exams, you should attempt the RTA Theory Test.
  6. Passing the Parking Test - the first tip is to practice this in the location you are doing the test. I practiced it at the Al Quoz Branch but did the test at the Al Khail branch - the reason behind this is the automated testing facility is here and you need to familiarize yourself with the automated vehicle. The second tip, which I learned from one of the senior trainers is - parking is mathematics, if you get the basics right you'll be able to park consistently. Watch this video: it will greatly benefit you. I passed the hill park, emergency breaking, parallel parking and angle parking on the first go. Failing only garage because I have a problem with the method from the training school.
  7. Garage Parking - at the school, they train you to use the sticker indication on the rear passenger window which is bonkers (its apparently a trick to help students pass you can see this in 12:06 of the video shared above). The challenge with this method is depending on your height, seat location, backrest location or whether you wear glasses all affect the angle. For the longest time I couldn't crack this as I kept getting or failing by small margins. The easiest way to pass this is to angle the car in and readjust it in front of you (the RTA allows you to do this in the test) before parking. Again here only attempt the parking when you have cleared the internal mock tests.
  8. RTA Myth - they have a quota of people to fail everyday, this is not true - you can either drive or not it's that simple.
  9. RTA Instructors - have different temperaments, if you are nervous it will reflect when you drive and they can pick up on that. Test when only when confident.
  10. Mental Pressure - it took me seven attempts, I remember distinctly when I failed the third time, I wanted to give up. Instead I reframed my thinking to accept that failing the test simply meant the RTA was keeping me safe by telling me I didn't have sufficient knowledge to be on the road. The second change I made was to stop comparing myself and telling people about my test - failing stopped becoming a burden.
Driving Test Failures - all my failures where down to one key thing - situational awareness. I was thought what to do on the road but not how to think on the road. This his impacted my decision making/confidence. You can only gain situational awareness when you have been on the road long enough and hence why I would encourage new drivers to get at least 60 to 80 hours before they take the test. Most people won't talk about their failures, I will tell you about mine with the hope you can learn from it.
  1. Failure 1 - attempted to cross the T junction without sufficient gap (I couldn't assess distance vs speed). What I should have done is let the speeding car pass and then cross.
  2. Failure 2 - this is the only one I was unhappy with the judgement. I waited 'too long' to move into a lane to overtake, I was told during the test I was failing because I will cause a traffic jam. All I wanted was a clear road to be able to safely take the car. Debatable.
  3. Failure 3 - turned into the second lane instead of the third lane at the U-turn. Correct thing to have done would have been to turn into the third lane.
  4. Failure 4 - attempted to merge on to a road without sufficient gap. I was thought to take the gap, the correct thing for a driving school car to do is to wait for a clear road where there is not debate on the distance x speed.
  5. Failure 5 - there was a cleaner on the road at the before signal turn (this happened in the afternoon), I slowed down and moved to the left but the correct thing to have done was slow down, blow horn, indicate to move to the left (even though the line is being cut).
  6. Failure 6 - I made an assumption that a taxi to my left would wait/allow me to pass but he was in a hurry and entered the round about a second before I could. I should have just waited, allowed him to pass.
Through all my tests - vehicle control, lane changes and general observance of rules was good. The lack of situational awareness cost me, especially judging distance x speed.
Tips to Pass the Test
Besides the normal things, here's ten things I wish I knew before I started:
  1. You are likely to test in a Nissan Sunny, the steering wheel has a notch below it to adjust it. Adjust it to the top most position position, this will build familiarity in your mind and the position is always the same. An internal examiner showed me this - after five months.
  2. Build a routine when you get into the car - adjust seat, adjust mirrors, then seat belt, then check for passenger seat belts. This routine becomes habit and habit will give you confidence.
  3. When you drive, check your rear view mirror every 5-8 seconds. Improves situational awareness.
  4. If you turn anywhere, just indicate. Make it a habit.
  5. In Al Quoz, indicate about 10 meters before the turn as there are lots of little garages/shops and drivers behind might think you are going there instead.
  6. Assume everyone on the road is unpredictable, it will train you to be a better defensive driver.
  7. If you are testing in Al Quoz, I recommend to test in the morning.
  8. Examiners are there to test basics and observe your understanding of the road. They're never going to ask you to try a lane change when the situation doesn't permit - what they will check is your judgement of the situation.
  9. Don't compare yourself to others.
  10. The vehicle on the left has priority.
  11. If you finish your internal classes, test within three days.
  12. Know where your pedestrian crossings are. Pedestrians in Al Quoz take this space for granted.
  13. If you are in the left lane at a pedestrian crossing, you are expected to indicate and cross at the right - the examiner won't ask you but its expected (have seen people on the test fail for this).
  14. If you happen to fail, try and book classes to learn immediately - don't be dejected or give up, everyone goes through it. The quicker you learn, the quicker you are able to test again. The momentum of wanting to learn and taking the test is what will drive you.
  15. At a round about, learn to exit and enter from every direction. Have seen other test members in the car who are so used to doing one thing, they forget when the examiner takes them to a new route.
  16. Know your area you are testing in - you'll be able to anticipate the roads you are connecting and the environment before you get there.
  17. If testing Al Quoz, use your horn - trust me you'll need it.
  18. Learn to start the car (most cars are already started when you enter). Occasionally if you go first, you might be asked to start the car.
  19. If you're asked to lane change, don't forget to check your blind spot.
  20. On the day of the test, arrive a minimum 30 minutes early and say a small prayer - both of these will soothe you.
  21. Given how busy Al Quoz is, some of the Stop lines have faded or are covered with dust, don't let this fool you - know these spots, look for the boards and stop.
  22. If you don't have the confidence, don't test.
  23. Assuming you have practiced 80 hours thats a total of 4,800 minutes, your test is 10 minutes - you got this.
  24. Always remember, the RTA is out to keep you safe. If they fail you, they are saving you.
  25. Unlike the Parking Test where there are 5 things you are tested on, there's not menu of items you have for the Driving Test but here's the top 5 things you definitely need to know: Situational Awareness, Lane Change, U-Turns into 2 & 3 lanes, Merging, Entering/Exiting Roundabouts
Finally, seventh heaven - aced the test on this attempt. Unlike before I was confident and calm. I arrived early, said a small prayer, did the same routine I always do when I enter the car, drove confidently - on the day had to enteexit a round about, do a u-turn, a couple of t-junctions and lane change twice - entire thing lasted ten minutes.
If you have found this post it's probably either you have failed and you are looking for some hope and guidance, I hope the above is of some use to you. To conclude, you need two key things going into the test experience and confidence. Experience comes from repetition, repetition builds confidence.
All the best.

2023.06.09 10:03 samk115 Sediment Filter help?

Hi everyone.
We own a rural property with rainwater collection as our primary water source.
The system uses a lift pump to pump water from the external tank up to a header tank on the 2nd story and is gravity fed from there.
Our drinking water is filtered already, however I would like to install a sediment filter somewhere between the tank and the lift pump. I was thinking something along the lines of a decent sized 10 micron filter would be suitable, but I am unsure if I should install it prior to or after the pump.
If prior, I was worried it may effect the pumps suction (it is a constant flow/constant pressure centrifugal pump) however on the outlet side I wad worried it could effect the pumps performance to keep up with demand in the house if for example someone is in the shower whilst the level sensor trips and needs to fill the header tank?
What is the correct or recommended way to go about this job?

2023.06.09 10:02 Ssaraaahh_ Yes you are loved

My coming out experience didn't went how I thought it would be. Lol, I never thought I ever would have a coming out in the first place. Since I went to the “female side”, I had to deal with people who didn’t care about me anymore. My small social circle was broken. And I learned my lesson in the hard way. Even I did find my loved one and my band with my family became closer, I’ve never felt this alone before.
Today is my birthday and I only got wishes from my family, my gf and her family. When I was younger, I would be devastated about the lack of birthday wishes. But now I am just happy that the people who really care about me and think about me, sended me those wishes. It is a good confirmation that I have to stop putting myself out there for those who don't appreciate me and value me in my worth, personality and sexuality. I have to be content with who are present in my life and appreciate them more over the negative thoughts of whom I lost.
This is a friendly reminder for myself, and for others, that you aren't alone, ever, and that in one way or another, there is someone who thinks about you. And them will let you know how loved you are. Because we are beloved by others 💛

2023.06.09 10:02 SpaceCadet1718 Burning feeling in arms

Whenever I put my arm in a bent position, I feel a burning feeling in my arm (below the elbow), pinky and my forefinger. If it’s not burning, then it’s tingling. It is very painful. I’ve found that propping my arm up stops it.
Does anyone know what this is, and how I can get rid of it for good?

2023.06.09 10:02 wt_anonymous I feel like in another life I would have been a carpenter

When I was younger, I spent time with my great grandpa in his basement where he had a whole woodworking shop set up. I would make things with him occasionally and I honestly enjoyed doing it.
I'm currently studying computer science as it's also something I enjoy, but a small part of me still sort of wants to back to wood work. I haven't really done anything like that in over a decade.
It wasn't that I didn't consider carpentry though, I did. But I don't think I could realistically do it. I'm not very good with my hands. I once tried to help my dad with his work (he's an electrician) and I could not keep my hands steady to save my life. And in general I'm not a physically capable person... I spend all day indoors and don't exercise as much as I probably should. I'm not really equipped to deal with the long and physically intensive hours of a carpenter.
But I think, maybe in another life it might have happened. If maybe I had more experience with it going into my adolescent years, I was a more physically competent person, and the pay was better (it's not great where I live, not for how difficult it is), then maybe it would have happened.
To be honest I guess I've always kind of admired people who could just make things with their hands. Ceramic work can be pretty cool too. Stuff like that just feels like it has a lot more practical use than what I'm studying to do for a living.

2023.06.09 10:02 Creatures1504 RoTB thoughts (Slight Spoilers!)

Absolutely loved the movie! The CGI was pretty on par with the older films, the story was understandable, the music was really good (Got super happy when Arrival To Earth played), and it cemented what a majority of us were suspecting....
....Bumblebee was in fact a reboot. No "Scourge is Bay Prime" or "They collectively all got dementia and forgot about everything and went back to their normal lives on Cybertron and Earth," and Unicron was not Earth (wouldn't have made sense since he literally tries to EAT Earth). It was really enjoyable. Although I do wish a couple of characters did get some more screen time (Stratosphere and Pablo)

2023.06.09 10:01 samweis_ Phone recommendations (price range 400 - 800 €)

Hi, I'm looking to switching to a newer phone. I'm currently using Samsung Galaxy s20 FE and it's poor battery life is just so frustrating to me. Other than that, I've got no complaints. The battery sucked from the start, so I don't think that replacing the battery helps in this situation.
I do not play games with my phone, so it does not need be the most powerful device. Things I am looking for are good battery life and a good camera.
I've been thinking about the new Sony Xperia 10 V, because of the 5000 mAah battery and it's slim design, but I've been reading some mixed reviews about it, so I'm still looking for other options.
Do you think Sony Xperia 10 V is too much of a downgrade compared to the Samsung Galaxy S20 FE? What would you recommend to me instead?

2023.06.09 10:01 No-Stranger7818 Doggy owner of Sg, any recommendations for affordable/ instalment plans vet for pet surgery

Doggy owner of Sg, any recommendations for affordable/ instalment plans vet for pet surgery
my dog was adopted and has a lump under her belly. Her previous owners was urgent to move back to their country but there was no one that wanted to adopt her, so we took her in without knowing that she has underlying issues. Previously we had already brought her to the vet due to her leg injury which is healed up now but now there are fluids and blood coming out from her lump. my family and I are worried and we can’t afford much due to some financial issues
Would really appreciate the recommendations! Thank you☺️
The lump is now bigger than how it looks like in the picture😔

2023.06.09 10:01 smalltortoise1 Is there a good time to stop grinding for coins?

So I was levelling up way too quickly with not enough coins to buy the machines I was unlocking per level. So I stopped doing boat and truck orders and focussed on making items to sell in my shop. I went from about 28k to 145k in about 3 days. Luckily I had help from the farm helpers on their 7 days free which is expiring in about 2 days or so. I’m now level 34.
My question is, is there a point I should stop grinding for coins, and start going back to boat and truck orders for XP to level up? Or do I just keep making stuff, getting coins and levelling up slowly?
At the moment, I’m yet to pay for the net maker in the fishing area, pay to repair the track to the town, buy an ice cream maker and I’m close to unlocking the jam maker when I get to level 35. I also only have 1 smelter.

2023.06.09 10:01 AutoModerator What are the benefits and side effects of Ashwagandha?

What is ashwagandha?
The ashwagandha plant is one of the most powerful herbs. Various parts of the ashwagandha plant are used for medicinal purposes, with ashwagandha extract mainly being used in supplements. Ashwagandha is an adaptogen, a natural agent that reportedly helps the body cope with stress. As a result, it’s believed to be effective at helping reduce levels of the stress hormone, cortisol. It may also therefore potentially help with anxiety and depression too.
What does ashwagandha do?
Reduces Stress and Anxiety
Ashwagandha is known to help reduce stress and anxiety. One way it does this is by reducing levels of cortisol, a hormone that is released in response to stress. Additionally, ashwagandha has been shown to improve mood and cognitive function, both of which can be negatively affected by stress.
Enhances Cognitive Function
Ashwagandha has also been shown to improve cognitive function. One study showed that it improved memory and reaction time in healthy adults. Another study found that it improved task performance in people with ADHD. Additionally, ashwagandha may help prevent age-related cognitive decline.
Boosts Energy Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to boost energy levels. One study showed that it increased stamina and reduced fatigue in people with chronic fatigue syndrome. Additionally, ashwagandha may help improve exercise performance.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help improve sleep quality and reduce inflammation. These effects can all contribute to enhanced energy levels.
Regulates Blood Sugar Levels
Ashwagandha has been shown to help regulate blood sugar levels. One study showed that it improved insulin sensitivity in people with type II diabetes. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce fasting blood sugar levels and improve symptoms of diabetes.
Additionally, ashwagandha may also help lower cholesterol levels and protect against heart disease. These effects can also contribute to improved blood sugar control.
Lowers Blood Pressure
Ashwagandha has been shown to help lower blood pressure. One study showed that it improved blood pressure in people with hypertension. Additionally, ashwagandha may help reduce stress and anxiety, both of which can contribute to high blood pressure.
Is ashwagandha safe?
Ashwagandha is generally considered safe for most people. However, it can cause side effects such as stomach upset, diarrhea, and vomiting in some people. If you're pregnant or breastfeeding, it's best to avoid ashwagandha.
What happens when you take ashwagandha daily?
As a sleep aid, ashwagandha may help people get to sleep faster and stay asleep for longer. It is also used to promote male potency. Ashwagandha has a variety of health benefits, including reduced blood sugar levels, inflammation, mood, memory, stress and anxiety relief, as well as an increase in muscle strength and fertility. Depending on your requirements, dosages vary from 250 to 500 mg per day for at least one month.
When it comes to stress relief, ashwagandha may be as effective as some prescription medications. A 2010 study found that the herb was just as effective as lorazepam (Ativan) in reducing stress and anxiety. click the link below to learn more about abhwagandha, and its real health benefits.
