2023.06.02 17:20 SquidgeBear Keep getting caught in the same cycle

I've lost 20lb since last year, that in itself feels so slow. Everytime I'm making visible and mental progress, start feeling good about myself, I end up putting myself on the back burner and then regret it because progress stalls.
I have medication and a hormonal imbalance stacked against me as well as being a woman in her 30's that carries the mental load of the household.
Things always come up where I'm busy taking care of everyone but me and its like everything goes out the window. It then gets hard to get back into the swing of it because I feel down that I've let myself give in to the cycle again. It goes as far as forgetting to drink water.
I'm supposed to be going cold water swimming tonight (my one activity truly for myself most weeks) and I feel like I should miss it because I have things to do and would rather wallow.
Any tips for making yourself and your health a priority? I'll never get anywhere keep doing this, but feel awful guilt when I put myself first especially is busy household times.
I just needed a rant and figured there must be others that feel the same that are on weight loss journey.

Democrats have a branding problem

😴 Long Observation 😴
I was inspired by u/Randomuser1520 's post about the Democratic Party's seemingly weak bench of future potential presidential nominees.
A lot of the problems trace back to 2016, but I'd argue the Democrats' branding woes go back even further. Think all the way back to the last time the Democrats had a consistently strong electoral record as a party -- the 90s, where the only truly bad year for Ds was 1994. Bill Clinton had successfully rebranded the party under the 'Third Way' label that Dems at any level could embrace and benefit from, and he had a clear successor in Al Gore. But Gore loses narrowly in 2000, and the problems for the Dems' brand begin.
'Yes We Can'
After 9/11, the electorate supports Bush and they support war. Dems' brand takes a hit and they lose the 2002 midterms. In 2004, John Kerry is successfully painted as an out-of-touch Ivy League liberal, disengaged from 'real America.' Dems lose and their brand suffers further.
But by the end of Bush's term, most Americans are disillusioned with Dubyaism. They wanted change, and one man promises to lead them to it with posters that proclaim 'HOPE' and cries of 'Yes We Can,' heralding in a new age of politics. Barack Obama and the Democrats are swept into a trifecta in Washington.
And we certainly got a new age of politics. When Obama was inaugurated, pundits speculated about the 'emerging Democratic majority', and how the GOP may literally go extinct in ten years. By the end of Obama's second term, those same pundits are surveying the absolutely decimated state of the Democratic party at all levels of power. Dems had lost the Senate, the House, most governorships, and most state legislatures. Control of the state legislatures makes the GOP's hold on the House even stronger. Control of the Senate effectively leads to control of the Supreme Court.
While Obama certainly can't be blamed for everything the GOP threw at him, I feel like it's safe to say his rebranding of the Democratic party failed in the long run. The 'Party of Hope' was sunk into the quagmire of a slow economic recovery, some of the most cynical politicking ever, and some of the most dysfunctional White House-Congress relationships in the history of the country. Obama's signature healthcare legislation would languish in the 30s approval-wise until after he left office. By 2015, no one was talking about the Democrats as the Party of Hope anymore. Even the guy who designed the original 'Hope' poster said he was frustrated by the lack of progress under the Obama admin. I'd argue that the Republicans were responsible for the clear majority of this dysfunction, but if their goal was to muddy the waters between the parties, they succeeded. And with the Tea Party, they were better at rebranding themselves even when they were in the opposition.
And none of this was helped by the face that Obama seemed extremely reluctant, even uninterested, in stepping into the role of party leader. Congressional Democrats were frustrated at the way he kept his distance from them, making it hard to solidify the policy goals they'd implemented in his first term. This article (https://www.nytimes.com/2014/08/19/us/aloof-obama-is-frustrating-his-own-party.html) sums it up well, with this prescient quote sticking out:
In interviews, nearly two dozen Democratic lawmakers and senior congressional aides suggested that Mr. Obama’s approach has left him with few loyalists to effectively manage the issues erupting abroad and at home and could imperil his efforts to leave a legacy in his final stretch in office.
And sure enough, Obama's legacy was in peril before he even left office.
'Stronger Together'
In 2016, Democrats didn't plan for a primary, they planned for a coronation. Hillary Clinton had been locking up all the support she could get from the Democratic establishment while Obama was serving his second term. Biden would seem like the clear establishment successor, but by the time he was able to turn his attention from VP duties to the primary he realized Hillary had completely boxed him out. She had already corralled all the big donors, operatives, and endorsements into her corner, and Joe was checkmated before he even sat down to the board. Thus, he turned down the opportunity, likely burying his long-nurtured presidential ambitions.
But then the coronation gets bumpy. Sanders challenges her from the outside, and immediately begins putting her on the spot as to why she's running. In other words, what does she envision for the Democratic brand? Hillary herself doesn't know. Is it a third term of Bill (whose star was starting to fade among everyone whose name doesn't rhyme with Shames Scarville), a third term of Obama (whose Hope posters have since become landfill), or an all-new thing?
To Hillary's credit, she couldn't portray herself as a total break from the past, both because she had been was strongly anchored to the national political landscape for the last thirty years, and because she could hardly attack Obama's record too harshly. In the end, she also struggled to brand both herself and the party. Consider the slogans most associated with her campaign; 'Forward Together' and 'Stronger Together' sound like the slogans of a centrist third party with no concrete policy ideas. They just attempted to project a feeling of unity onto a people who were united only, if the candidacies of Sanders and Trump meant anything, in the feeling that 'establishment' politicians like HRC had failed. And, of course, 'I'm with Her' was barely a rebrand at all, simply associating the party with its uncharismatic yet seemingly unstoppable frontrunner.
In the meantime, Trump had done the opposite, rebranding himself and the GOP as the party of 'America First populism.' What that meant exactly in terms of policy seemed to change from day to day But as a brand, as a forceful statement of intent, it worked, especially when contrasted with a seemingly rudderless HRC campaign that failed to answer the age-old question: 'Why are you running for president?'
'For the People'
After the 2016 fiasco, the Democrats were decimated and leaderless. Senate Majority Leader Harry Reid had passed his leadership position to Chuck Schumer and passed on soon after Trump took office. Tim Ryan led a mutiny against Nancy Pelosi, blaming her in part for the party's plunge from ascendance to irrelevance in the House. Hillary Clinton disappeared into the woods of Chappaqua. Obama started making a docu-series for Netflix. Joe Biden entered semi-retirement and wrote a book.
But in all of this, they found something they had been lacking. A brand.
Not the one they would have preferred, but one that would work nonetheless for winning elections. House Dems would embrace the (once-again) vague slogan of 'For the People' ahead of the 2018 midterms, but the aim was clear. The Democrats were now the Opposition; the Anti-Trump party.
Trump's approval rating was not just low, but incredibly sticky. People tended to have very firm opinions on him, and so his approval rating barely escaped the 35-45% range, with him almost hitting 50% before the pandemic hit. Thus, running on opposition to Trump would be fine electorally. In 2018, the Democrats had a blue wave year based mostly on opposition to Trump, retaking the house. Ironically, a big policy motivator for voters was backlash against the GOP's effort to repeal and replace Obamacare -- a promise that had driven Republican electoral gains since the bill was passed into law. Republican branding and messaging had been so successful that, for the better part of the decade, people trusted them to 'fix' the ACA until the very last minute before the replacement was signed.
'Battle for the Soul of the Nation'
But the problem remained for 2020 -- who would lead them? This was a difficult decision even before the pandemic. And Democratic primary voters were treated to a veritable buffet on angles on how to rebrand the party to beat Trump.
Should the party embrace democratic socialism under Sanders, or heavy consumer advocacy under Warren? Should it embrace a young, charismatic up-and-comer like Harris, Buttigieg, or O'Rourke or someone just as 'establishment' as Hillary, like Michael Bloomberg? Old-school liberalism with the Klob? Whatever Andrew Yang was doing?
But as the polls drew near, the Democrats seemed to conclude that beating Trump was simply more important than charting a new course for the party. If they could get elected or rebrand, they'd choose the former. And so all the other more moderate candidates dropped out to consolidate the vote around Biden, as the safe, expected pick who could stay the course. Biden and his surrogates began adopting the slogan 'Battle for the Soul of the Nation,' an epic and apocalyptic phrase that is still fundamentally reactive in tone, implying that the biggest motivator to vote for Democrats that fall was not to pass any specific agenda, but to put a stop to the GOP's plans.
Biden wouldn't govern in this way, but he would campaign this way -- as the normal, capable candidate who could lead the country's post-covid recovery in opposition to Trump's perceived incompetence. Biden won, but Democrats didn't get nearly the boost they wanted from covid, and House candidates underperformed Biden nationally, leading to a surprising loss of seats in the House. And after the effort to throw out the election failed, Trump left office with severely damaged standing with independents. The anti-Trump brand had delivered Dems a trifecta; now it was time to use it; hopefully to establish a new brand for a new decade.
'Building Back Better'
Upon taking office, Biden and the Dems lay out their agenda; the 'Build Back Better' plan, which centers on a three-pronged approach; a pandemic relief bill, an infrastructure bill, and a social policy bill. Passing such plans will involve all 50 Senate D's on board in some cases, and a bipartisan filibuster-proof majority of 60 senators in other cases.
People laugh, think back to 2010, and begin arguing whether a prediction that the GOP will control 55 Senate seats by 2023 is too conservative. Nancy Pelosi is trying to manage a mere five-seat majority in the house. Mitch McConnell, who once feasted on the Democrats' lost hopes the way a hungry turtle devours a plate of juicy strawberries, still held enough sway in the Senate to hold up any significant policy not related to budget reconciliation. Even then, Schumer must wrangle mavericks like Joe Manchin and Kyrsten Sinema. Dramatic divisions still rip across the fabric of American society. But then, something truly strange happens.
The 117th Congress ends up being one of the most productive sessions ever.
Whether or not you think any or all of the 117th's acts were good policy, it's undeniable that this was an unusually politically efficient session, especially considering the last decade of hardball politics. Bipartisan majorities drive the infrastructure act, a gun control act, a tech-manufacturing promotion act, and even a somewhat-legalization of same-sex marriage nationwide. Plus, Schumer and Pelosi navigate their tiny majorities toward passing partisan priorities, like the pandemic relief act and the scaled-down Build Back Better social policy bill, rebranded as the Inflation Reduction Act or IRA. McConnell drops his trademark stonewalling and collaborates with Biden on the bipartisan bills, and 'Yea' votes roll in even from deep red states -- Republican senators from Mississippi, West Virginia, and North Dakota get these bills over the line. Bipartisanship returns to Congress in fleeting glances -- something that I feel confident in arguing absolutely no one expected Biden or the Dem leaders to be able to do.
Of course, no one has forgotten 2010, and 2022 looks to be another rough year. Inflation soars, and Biden's approval rating drops. Dems brace for impact. The Dobbs ruling happens, but polls repeatedly suggest that the economy is the top issue on voters' minds, and they don't like Biden's handling of it.
But while these things are true, they ignore a crucial factor -- the GOP is embroiled in an identity crisis of its own. The leader of the party is claiming to be the legitimate president of the United States, which is a bit of a hard issue to ignore. Trump loyalists beat out 'establishment' Republicans in the primaries, and bring their hard promotion of the MAGA brand to the general elections. And they lose.
I think it's fair to say that the GOP lost most of the key races of the 2022 midterms, rather than Democrats winning them. Swing state Republican parties chose candidates who adhered so closely to a brand so toxic that independents still chose the Democrats, even in some cases where they were dissatisfied with the party. Republicans who have managed to establish a brand for themselves -- DeSantis, Kemp, and DeWine among them -- soar, while the Trumpiest candidates fall flat. McConnell remains in the minority, and McCarthy becomes the head of a very, very dysfunctional family.
Will Brandon's Rebrand Stand?
So, coming off an unusually strong midterm, where does the party go in 2024? Probably, as u/Randomuser1520 said, back to Biden. When your party wins one of the most fiercely contested elections in American history, has a productive legislative session, and then massively overperforms in the midterm, you don't usually change horses regardless of what approval polling says. If Biden were just 10 years younger and the health concerns were off the table, there would be no question in anyone's mind who to nominate.
The establishment and progressive wings of the party seem to be behind him if he runs, meaning challenges will only come from real outsiders like Marianne Williamson and Robert Kennedy Jr. The DNC will probably work to make those challenges as unviable as possible.
2024 is tricky to predict. Trump is favored on the Republican side, and as said before, his brand is so toxic that Biden can probably glide to reelection barring any massive economic downturns or serious health problems. I won't get too much into 2024, because it seems pretty clearly on the path to becoming another referendum on the GOP's brand, not the Democrats'. Biden's second term (and the rest of his first term) may be defined as much by implementation of the legislation they passed during the 117th as much as by new legislation, if not more.
So the question becomes this -- where does the party go in 2028? Or, in other words, what will Democrats take away from the Biden presidency, and how will Biden shape the party's brand going forward? Who they choose to lead the party next will tell, and Biden's presidency may already be laying out a blueprint.
In his 1996 State of the Union address, Bill Clinton declared 'the era of big government is over,' essentially conceding that Reagan and his vision of a small role for the federal government in domestic affairs had won out for the time, and that Democrats would need to work within that political reality in order to win elections. Obama's efforts to change that status quo resulted in an avalanche of backlash from Tea Partiers, self-proclaimed champions of fiscal conservatism. Hillary Clinton's failed campaign strategy arguably rested more on that understanding of the political climate than anything else, causing her to miss a series of growing frustrations with Reaganism at times channelled by Sanders and, at times, Trump -- at decimation of the manufacturing sector, at the growing gap between rich and poor, at China's seemingly unstoppable three-decade rise at the expense of the U.S.
Biden's approach to American industry and government is a strong repudiation of Reaganism, based around the idea that it is the government's job to fortify and guide the economy in ways that are necessary where the free market has little incentive to. It argues that the issues of infrastructural decay, manufacturing decline, and the growing need for green energy in the face of climate change will only be solved if the government directs the power of the private sector towards those goals at great upfront cost. And free trade, long held as the unassailable source of America's prosperity, must now only be employed in moderation -- if the U.S. has to arguably break international law to lure foreign investment into the U.S. through generous subsidies, it will be worth it, even if it earns the fury of our economic partners. This may be the groundwork of Bidenism.
These plans may fail. The money may be wasted by incompetent or corrupt administrators and the American people may become even more jaded at the thought of big government. But movement within the GOP may suggest a broader shift in the American mind towards this kind of economic interventionism is already in progress. Promising to reverse the decline of manufacturing through tariffs and other measures would have been political anathema twenty years ago, but it has become a core Republican plank. Florida Republicans' punitive measures towards Disney and the GOP's growing support for government action against Big Tech companies suggests openness towards not just using state power to guide the economy, but also to reshape the social landscape by manipulating the private sector. It may well be that the era of small government is over.
I've sorted some potential 'brands' and some of the people who might be nominated in 2028 / become party standard-bearers should the Democrats go in that direction. These lists aren't exhaustive; I'm just trying to establish a general vibe.
The 'Biden Blueprint': Kamala Harris, Pete Buttigieg, Gina Raimondo
These are members of the Biden admin who have been given great power (and great piles of money) to enact the legislation of the 117th. If American sentiment towards big government changes as quickly as I think it could, a Cabinet secretary could have a decent shot in 2028. Harris would be the natural successor as the VP, but Transportation Sec Buttigieg and Commerce Sec Raimondo, who were empowered to implement much of the Infrastructure Act and the CHIPS Act respectively, could become standard-bearers for this new vision of technocratic governance if they administer these programs well (and in a way that makes headlines). If Energy Sec Granholm were a natural-born citizen, she would definitely fit here as well, considering how much power the IRA gave her department.
The 'New New Deal': Amy Klobuchar, Catherine Cortez Masto, Mark Kelly, Tammy Duckworth, Raphael Warnock
Liberal senators who are capable of working across the aisle to achieve compromise could be a strong bet if Democrats want to recreate the success of the 117th Congress in the future. There's always an argument that effective legislators won't necessarily make for effective executives, but these choices would help with Democrats' goal of rebranding the Democratic party as the party you vote for if you want Washington to function properly and anticipate constituents' needs. Such a ticket could brand itself as the path to bipartisan yet assertive solutions on familiar and emerging issues like immigration reform, federal protection for abortion, the housing shortage, and the drug crisis.
The 'Bulwark': Roy Cooper, Laura Kelly, Andy Beshear
I'll admit that when I began writing this post, I had a more favorable opinion of the above three governors and politicians like them as presidential nominees and the potential 'future of the party.' I no longer feel as strongly about them, however, because I don't believe they do enough to change the brand of the Democrats and the political environment as a whole. These governors are best known for winning races in red states; for holding the line against the most conservative policies while finding areas of compromise, especially on kitchen-table issues.
But this brand of Democrat is fundamentally reactive, even defensive -- it assumes that most of the job will be obstructing right-wing legislation from a red legislature. In other words, it is a kind of strategy you use when you're trying to hold ground, not gain it. It works well when your opponent's brand is toxic (as the GOP's has been since 2016), but this I suspect this brand of 'competent normality' will struggle if the opposition ceases to actively repel voters. If Trump and his acolytes continue to hold a strong grip on the party through 2024 and beyond, this brand may not be a bad bet short-term, but long-term Democrats want to be the ones establishing the rules of the game, not just beating your opponent at theirs. That's what a successful political brand does. While Dems in similar situation should definitely look to these governors for guidance in running their campaigns (and hopefully, their administrations), I would caution at this point against basing the national party's brand on their model.
I think somewhere between these three groups lies a successful path forward for the Democrats that towards becoming the dominant party in U.S. politics at the federal level. There are some other interesting currents in the party; like how Democratic governors like Whitmer, Evers, and Walz have rebuilt D strength the Midwest after a rough 2010s, and how Western Dems like Jared Polis, Mary Peltola, and Marie Gluesenkamp Perez have found unexpected electoral stength by embracing a form of libertarianism. However, these currents may be regional, and Democrats shouldn't necessarily try to nationalize every idea that works in one part of the country. Creating different regional 'flavors' of Democrat would be necessary to keep the party relevant in all parts of the country.
Regarding the 2020 primary runners-up, I don't think most of the visions laid out then work post-2024, and for this reason I tend not to give too much weight to current Democratic primary polling, because it assumes these same people would be running again.
Assuming Biden ends his term without catastrophe, I don't think the party needs to place all their faith in a young, charismatic Obama wannabe like O'Rourke or Swalwell, nor does it need to drastically pivot to the center, nor does it need to proclaim itself the party of 'outsiders,' nor does it need to give the reins to the progressive wing. If everything goes right, they can remain ideologically where they are now (roughly) and establish a solid brand for the first time in a generation.
The Democrats been losing the branding war since the days of Nixon. They may currently have all the tools they need right now to change that, and set the expectations for the next fifty years of politics. Let's see how they do.
This is my first big write-up, so I almost certainly missed some stuff and made some assumptions. Let me know what you think.

How Does Ikaria Lean Belly Juice Powder Work?

To understand how Ikaria Lean Belly Juice promotes weight loss essential to comprehend its impact on the body. According to the official website, the supplement flushes out excess ceramide. But what exactly is ceramide, and how does it contribute to weight gain?

Platforms like BBB and Trustpilot are valuable resources for gathering reviews and ratings on organizations, products, and weight loss supplements. Unfortunately, no specific reviews are available for Ikaria Lean Belly Juice on these platforms.

Does Scientific Research Support Ikaria Lean Belly Juice?

The formulation of Ikaria Lean Belly Juice is rooted in scientific evidence, particularly about ceramide reduction for weight loss. The manufacturer has selected ingredients with proven properties for removing excess ceramide and promoting weight loss.
Scientific and clinical studies published in reputable medicinal journals have explored the effects of Ikaria Lean Belly Juice ingredients on weight loss. For example, the Journal of Functional Foods published a study on Bioperine, which demonstrated significant weight loss and a reduction in visceral fat among obese participants.
Panax ginseng, another primary ingredient in Ikaria Lean Belly Juice, has been scientifically proven to have an anti-obesity effect and can suppress appetite, as revealed in a research article published by the National Center for Biotechnology Information. Similar scientific studies support the other ingredients in Ikaria Lean Belly Juice, highlighting their potential for ceramide removal and weight loss.
In conclusion, Ikaria Lean Belly Juice is a natural dietary supplement that has garnered attention for its weight loss benefits. With positive customer reviews, scientific backing, and a focus on ceramide reduction, this supplement shows promise for individuals seeking to shed excess weight.

2023.06.02 16:56 zendi_lyon my psychiatrist made a note : "denies eating disorder"

...But he never asked me if I had one.....
Last year I was going through an incredibly stressful time and hadn't been eating as much... I was also going through a separate health concern that I've been trying to figure out with my General Practitioner.
When I met with the psychiatrist he started checking my weight when he prescribed me adderall ER (insurance covered generic). When he noticed I was losing weight he asked "are you being healthy?". I said I was trying to.. but was still dealing with a lot of other bullshit... which wasn't something I was able to address with him but had been with my therapist. . I lost about 7lbs and eventually noticed some hairloss (which was something I has already been dealing with the situation I was working on w my other doctor that was hormone related -potentially pcos-. but when the adderall kicked it up a notch I called to say I wasn't comfortable continuing ...)..
During my follow up psy' checked my weight again and I was back to my normal weight....
however, Rather than prescribe me another adhd related medication... he tried to shift the focus to my anxiety.. Which i also refused because I was only willing to consider meds to treat my adhd. my anxiety isn't bad enough, or debilitating, where I need meds. i can work on that in therapy (I see my therapist 2x a week) ..
But when my therapist told me the psychiatrist made a note "denies eating disorder and thoughts of SI*" i didn't know what to make of that. Could that be why he dropped trying to treat my adhd? Does he think I'm phishing for weight loss pills or something? I was the one that said I wanted to stop the adderall and even noted that I would rather not be on anything that messed with my weight (up or down)...
wtf?
(he also didnt ask about my SI...he just said "you don't seem depressed. right?"... I brushed it off because I knew hes just trying to numb me out.. which JUST MAKES ADHD WORSE! I cannot function because of the F*ing ADHD!)

2023.06.02 16:56 Ashamed_Cress_5270 Confidence advice with health issues

Hi wedding friends, I am getting married in September and am so happy it’s finally here. However, last year I was diagnosed with Ankylosing Spondylitis and it changed my life drastically. In that process, I had to cancel my destination wedding plans and do it in my city instead. I’ve had to make many alterations to my dress, as it was originally for 50 degree weather (F) and now it’ll be 90+ degrees. You can see my dress on my profile if you’d like.
My question is, how did y’all handle weight gain for your wedding? I have gained 40 pounds in the last year due to being on heavy doses of medications to keep my body from fusing my joints further. I work out when my body allows, PT once a week, eat healthy for the most part but the weight just will not come off. I know it’s not a huge deal but it’s hard to feel excited for wedding photos when I don’t recognize the body I’m in.
Any advice is appreciated, just going through a rough time…

2023.06.02 16:35 Spiritual-Roll3062 New quantization method AWQ outperforms GPTQ in 4-bit and 3-bit with 1.45x speedup and works with multimodal LLMs

New quantization method AWQ outperforms GPTQ in 4-bit and 3-bit with 1.45x speedup and works with multimodal LLMs
Paper: https://arxiv.org/abs/2306.00978
GitHub: https://github.com/mit-han-lab/llm-awq
Some excerpts:
In this paper, we propose Activation-aware Weight Quantization (AWQ), a hardware-friendly low-bit weight-only quantization method for LLMs. Our method is based on the observation that weights are not equally important for LLMs’ performance. There is a small fraction (0.1%-1%) of salient weights; skipping the quantization of these salient weights will significantly reduce the quantization loss.
Unlike GPTQ which formulates linear layers as matrix-vector (MV) products, we instead model these layers as matrix-matrix (MM) multiplications. We also outperform a recent Triton implementation for GPTQ by 2.4× since it relies on a high-level language and forgoes opportunities for low-level optimizations.
AWQ outperforms round-to-nearest (RTN) and GPTQ across different model scales (7B-65B), task types (common sense vs. domain-specific), and test settings (zero-shot vs. in-context learning). It achieves better WikiText-2 perplexity compared to GPTQ on smaller OPT models and on-par results on larger ones, demonstrating the generality to different model sizes and families. AWQ consistently improves the INT3-g128 quantized Vicuna models over RTN and GPTQ under both scales (7B and 13B), demonstrating the generability to instruction-tuned models
Remarkably, despite utilizing an additional bit per weight, AWQ achieves an average speedup of 1.45×, a maximum speedup of 1.7× over GPTQ, and 1.85× speed up over cuBLAS FP16 implementation.

2023.06.02 16:16 iLL0GiCaLL0GiC No longer obese thanks to Wegovy.

Hello all, I've been following many stories on this sub for successes people have been having and finally decided today to share mine.
I started my weight loss journey at the beginning of February at 253.2 lbs, morbidly obese category. I did lose 13.7 lbs on my own before I got approved for Wegovy in mid March by committing to not eat between the hours of 7pm and 12pm, essentially a form of intermittent fasting. I also have sworn off as much sugar and snacks as possible. But since then I've lost another 25 lbs (38.7 total) to today, where I find myself at 214.5, almost 50% of my goal, with a BMI of 29.9 putting me in the Overweight category. The time on Wegovy has been so much easier than when I was just trying on my own in February, especially since I started 1.0 which has worked much more consistently than the lower doses for me. And I will be staying on it for now to see how it does without moving to the next tiers yet.
I'm super happy and excited. I've struggled with weight since middle school and now at 40 really felt like I needed to get my weight struggles in hand so I can lead a long healthy life for my children.
I've lost over 15% of my body weight, or how I often think of it, no longer carrying around daily the weight of my 6 year old, which is mind boggling. And I've been able to take two vacations which in the past has always been what knocks me off the wagon on any diet I've tried. Both times returning at the same or even a little less weight than I left with.
My goal is to get to 175lbs which would put me several pounds into my normal zone. And from there who knows? With the hunger suppression and better feelings of fullness and satisfaction often before I get half way through a meal, I feel like a new person. I wished for years that someone could make a medication to help curb my hunger which often led to binge eating snacks or extra portions of food. It is such a release to discover something that I now recognize is missing from my body and metabolism which is a system of checks against eating way more than my body actually needs.
I really look forward to what comes ahead and hope to hit my goal before the year is out. For those struggling, stick with it, try to make conscious choices to change ingrained habits with the support this drug and the wonderful people here can lend you.

2023.06.02 16:09 RobertSKeene [The Primeval Apocalypse] - Chapter Seventy-Five (collaboration with u/hydrael)

[The Primeval Apocalypse] - Chapter Seventy-Five (collaboration with u/hydrael)

The Primeval Apocalypse by Robert Keene and Alex Raizman
Start here (Prologue) Previous
***
Author's Note:
Promise made, promises kept.
Two more chapters after today, and both of them are super fun. Looking forward to seeing y'alls response, especially to tomorrow's...
***
Noaich shot down out of the trees, toothy maw agape.
With the entelodont focused on me, it didn’t even realize he was coming until it was too late.
Crocodile teeth modified by the Enrage and Howl abilities sank deep into the bristly hide and clamped down hard.
My companion’s weight was far outmatched by the giant pig-monster, so there was no way to drag the beast into a death roll. But his firm grip and powerful jaws meant that he was inflicting damage. Not to mention that as long as I could keep attacking to keep Maul active on the monster, his damage was boosted by 20% thanks to Teamwork III.
I had to keep on the offensive. With both of us together, our damage could outweigh the monster’s regeneration. But I couldn’t let up or else we were finished.
The entelodont briefly tried to turn to address the new foe clinging to its back, and I lunged in to remind it who the real enemy was. With the high attack speed from my new axe, I hacked away at the side of its face, leaving three deep cuts before it could return its attention to me. It tried to swat me away with a claw, but I was able to parry the blow with the edge of my weapon, leaving a cut along the inside of its hand-like paw as I deflected the attack.
The monster whirled its full attention back to me at that, lunging for a bite and forcing me back, but while Noaich was too small to outmuscle the entelodont, his weight was enough to slow it down. I was able to dart around and carve another deep wound up the creature’s jaw before three more strikes at the shoulder, working my way down and damaging its upper arm muscles as I went.
With the way the system handled damage, it didn’t immobilize the creature on that side, but as blood poured down the limb, its next step slipped as it tried to turn to follow me. The slip opened it up and I focused my efforts on its side, continuing down to chop away at its flank as fast as I could.
With all the buffs on me, the thick hide was barely an impediment now.
What mattered to me in the long term, though, was seeing the effect of Teamwork IV. Noaich’s continuous gnawing grip on the monster’s back meant that he was reducing the enemy’s parry and dodge checks against my attacks, and my attacks were doing the same for Noaich.
Class Achievement:
Perfect Teamwork: Take advantage of Teamwork IV 10 times (lifetime). The non-debuff detrimental effects from Teamwork IV stack up to 1 additional time.
I didn’t expect Teamwork IV to have a big impact on this fight. The entelodont’s defensive strategy was its tough hide and potent regeneration. But with Noiach dealing continuous damage, I could feel the effect of the boosted effect immediately. Apparently dodge and parry checks also governed how well it could absorb the impact with movements. My strikes were landing more squarely and my axe was cutting in deeper and deeper.
Obviously, the more we could keep it going, the stronger that achievement would become. And the way to do that was to swing away. Hard and fast.
With my new axe’s attack speed at full power, I ran circles around the entelodont, slicing almost blindly at it as it tried to keep up with my movements. Maul was still active, so blood gushed from every wound, staining its hide and filling the air as it kicked and thrashed. I was speckled with it now, and the ground around us was growing muddy and slick.
Claws slashed out at me, but the blood loss was slowing it down. Either that, or the exertion of spinning in place with a giant reptile clinging to it was draining its Stamina bar dry. Meanwhile, my new On The Prowl ability was still keeping my own Stamina stable, slowing its drain enough that I was still fresh and ready to keep on fighting.
“I expected more from you,” I grunted as I darted out to avoid a swiping claw, and then back in to deliver four quick slashes in return. “Especially after you whooped my butt last time.”
Kill you, the beast snarled. Despite all the fatigue and damage, its rage was still overwhelming all other concerns. Kill you kill you kill you.
“One level goes a long way,” I said, more to myself and Noaich than to the mindlessly enraged pig-monster. “No wonder the system spawns scary stuff for higher level people. Leveling up one time turns deadly threats into fair fights.”
Noaich was trying to respond to me, but with his jaws clamped down and his body being shaken around by the entelodont’s thrashing, he couldn’t communicate effectively. And the last thing I wanted was for him to let go. The damage he was applying was keeping the beast’s regeneration in check perfectly. The wounds I was opening across its side were barely healing at all.
The entelodont was getting weaker as the fight continued. And as I kept hacking away, and Noaich kept chomping down, we were getting stronger.
Perfect Teamwork II: Take advantage of Teamwork IV 25 times (lifetime). The non-debuff detrimental effects from Teamwork IV stack up to 2 additional times.
Sic ‘Em II: Deal 2,500 damage with your pet (lifetime). All pet damage is increased by 5%.
The creature’s strength was flagging now. Its slowed movements meant that I circled all the way around from its right side to its hindquarters. It tried to surprise me by turning left instead of right, but it was so slow now, chopping away at its back legs as I danced well ahead of its movements.
The entelodont finally stopped trying to attack me, apparently realizing that it was hopeless so long as Noaich was ripping up its back and keeping its regeneration from helping. It sagged down and dropped to one side to try and roll over and crush my companion. That forced Noaich to let go and scramble away, but he held on until the entelodont fully committed to the roll.
With the beast on its back, it was vulnerable.
So I struck.
I leaped up onto the monster’s belly and ran straight up its body to its head. My tremendously boosted attack speed let me carve huge gaping wounds up its exposed underbelly, where its hide was almost as thin as my own skin instead of a thick layer of armor.
“Remember that you picked this fight,” I snapped as the beast struggled to try and roll back over onto its legs. “It didn’t have to be like this. But—”
Its front claws slashed out at me, trying to protect its most vulnerable spot, but It was too worn down.
Too sluggish.
Too wounded.
Too slow.
I deftly leaped over the swiping claws, and as I came down I drove both axes directly into the monster’s throat side-by-side, and ripped straight out, tearing the throat open up both sides.
The opened throat dumped blood out on me in a disgusting fountain. As it coated the monster’s head, my position on it slipped, sending me to the ground right in front of its face.
For a brief moment I thought I was toast. I was unprepared to slip, and I was in the perfect position to get chomped to death.
But as I landed, I looked into the entelodont’s eyes as they glazed over in death.
I heaved out a huge sigh of relief. The Big One was down.
We’d won.
And more than just the entelodont, too. The queen of this town was gone, along with a large chunk of her forces. And whoever stepped up to take her place was denied the huge stockpiles of hypnotic herbs that had enabled their cavalry. What little they had in their outlying camps wouldn’t be enough to support a large enough attack against Rachel’s camp to threaten her and her people—especially not with how many experience points and class achievements they’d no doubt racked up during this fight, like I had.
Even from here, behind some buildings—and wreckage that used to be buildings—my Beast Hunter ability let me see Rachel and her team mopping up the last of the Mandrill guards. The field of dead around them was a gorey mess, but with their tight formation and great buff support from their leader, not a single human had fallen.
“Damn,” I cursed as I scanned the battlefield, and then extended my attention to the whole town. I held myself still for a few seconds to double my range. “Damn, damn, damn.”
What’s wrong? Noaich asked.
“You know how you told me not to let that Mandrill go?” I asked. “And how you kept saying that was a bad idea?”
Yes, he said with a motion like a nod.
“I don’t sense the alpha anywhere,” I said with a grimace. “I didn’t want to let him go. Especially not after he punted you through a wall.”
Didn’t punt me through a wall, Noaich said, shaking himself indignantly. Sensed the danger and escaped at speed. Knew you had it under control.
“Yeah, well, it looks like he followed your example.” I gestured for us to move, and started at a light jog to go rejoin Rachel as they were finishing their part of the fight. “He’s gone for now. I bet we haven’t seen the last of him.”

What’s New?


https://preview.redd.it/2t9u8zjspl3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=6740ef676a6a5e1ef494ce2f7a6f7cdaf336a954

New Map: Reclaimed

War has descended upon an abandoned industrial facility, slowly being reclaimed by nature in the Czechian region. Fight in and amongst derailed trains, abandoned turbines and warehouses as you work towards secrets hidden within the mountains.
View our Reclaimed Flythrough Here: https://youtu.be/isg409g3d24

The Crash Site, featuring the derailed train, is designed primarily as a vehicle combat area, with the Landing Zone an area of forest providing a circular area that will enable close-quarters combat and new sightlines opening up when trees are destroyed.

https://preview.redd.it/ayr7gml0ql3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=8f0929adafa2e558166dd7f9888ab795f2b4c88a
You may see the inspiration we’ve taken for the Abandoned Turbine and Military Warehouse. The indoor space of the Abandoned Turbine will enable crossfires due to its verticality and cover. While the Military Warehouse’s floors will no doubt attract snipers and a range of gunplay experiences due to the narrow layout.

https://preview.redd.it/co8mioq2ql3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=19259d1daaf6bc24780e0247f64ecbd3c236a07e
Hidden inside the nearby mountain lies The Bunker, forgotten and made up of a central room whose linear space will bring intense, short-range, close-quarters combat. In comparison to this, The Silos is another outdoor area set up for vehicle combat with its generous roads perfect for tank battles. Easy to spot due to its four towers rising up from the ground, The Silos also provides plenty of elevated areas for infantry to get a shot at vehicles dominating the ground.


https://preview.redd.it/pabp7bj4ql3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e4e0ddc6d2f9ad2d39c806105eb60c064fc29c96

New Weapons: BFP.50, XCE Bar, GEW-46

The weapons arsenal is expanding this Season with not only new weapons, but also further much community requested improvements to Vault Weapons.
BFP.50
The BFP.50 is a powerful hand cannon, giving you another sidearm that dishes out heavy damage at close range. Anticipated to become a highly popular choice due to its size, sound and power, we just know you’re going to love this updated version for The World of 2042!

https://preview.redd.it/9td7zpfiql3b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=3956c1d9c838ab24b4e5c97b15a99da6030d0ab0
GEW-46
The GEW-46 assault rifle offers high stability with short-burst fire. Great for the medium-range environments that you’ll experience across the Reclaimed map.
https://preview.redd.it/fvgtdvemql3b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=889956787d599e124d4372750b1425c426c1d254
XCE Bar
The XCE Bar is a high-precision bolt action rifle. It has expanded attachment capability to accompany its stopping power, allowing you to quickly swap through attachment options to engage the enemy at various distances.

https://preview.redd.it/zz0683zoql3b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=d10317789d3d63bb78297c16725426b915d29dcd

New Gadgets: Spring Grenade, Anti-Tank Grenade, Mini Grenade & RPG-7V2


https://preview.redd.it/ko7te42sql3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=5749ffb7bb967c9c71281cc2098e4a42ce9e32cf
Anti-tank Grenade
A bundle of grenades that will detonate on impact against vehicles while dealing substantial damage.
Mini Grenade
An anti-personnel grenade that can be thrown a longer distance, and after a short delay explodes across a small area.
Spring Grenade
An old familiar projectile behavior as seen before in the form of the S-Mine or Bouncing Betty. It operates through a spring-activated thruster to reach head-height altitude before imminent explosive detonation.
RPG-7V2
Veterans of the franchise will be familiar with this much loved gadget, and we’ve heard your requests to bring this boomstick through to All-Out Warfare from Battlefield Portal. With Season 5, you’ll now have access to use this fan favorite gadget however you see fit!

https://preview.redd.it/gmodm37uql3b1.png?width=1920&format=png&auto=webp&s=aa892cfc461d7b2e997d476216b1116dbb1d5e8a

New Battle Pass

Season 5 brings with it two factions - one that’s cutting-edge, calculating and professional versus a more survivalist group who are savage, independent and ruthless.
You’ll see this in the cosmetics available as you play through the Battle Pass, some of the best we feel we’ve ever brought to Battlefield! From Falck’s ‘Regenerator’ Skin at Tier 0, to Dozer’s ‘Overthrower’ Skin at Tier 100.

https://preview.redd.it/ia6h6gayql3b1.jpg?width=3840&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=eab85f779658e6f1495a4ee347f8cef2467cac6c
There’s a whole load of items to unlock across 100 tiers of the Free and Premium Battle Pass including cosmetics, XP boosters, and the new premium Seasonal Booster! Additionally, those that were Year 1 pass holders will also receive an Epic Skin and XP booster during the first two weeks of Season 5, as a thanks for continuing to play.*
Lastly, we’re continuing to work on the game beyond Season 5. We are committed to continuing the Battlefield 2042 journey and are working through the best ways to bring new content and experiences for you all. Expect to hear more from us on what’s planned later in Season 5.

Quality of Life Improvements

Vault Weapon Attachments & Universal Cosmetics
https://i.redd.it/1j3epbg5rl3b1.gif
We will be adapting Vault Weapons for use with All-Out Warfare attachments during Season 5. To start, we’ll focus on Assault Rifles and Sniper Rifles with attachments for the M16A3, A-91, M416, MTAR-21, AEK-971 and the GOL Sniper Magnum. We’ll continue to provide attachment support for Vault Weapons in subsequent updates.
https://i.redd.it/rz04rst7rl3b1.gif
With Season 5, we will also be introducing Universal Cosmetics for all Vault Weapons, from Forest Multi-terrain (Unlocked at Rank 0) to Desert Technical (Unlocked at Rank 19) and more. You’ll now be able to decide not only the attachments and versatility of your Vault Weapons, but the look of them too. We’ll also be extending Universal Cosmetic support to Battlefield Portal!
Tune in to our Inside Battlefield Podcast, or read our latest Dev Notes blog for full details.

Reworking Vehicle Loadouts

We’re restructuring vehicle loadouts to ensure their combat roles are clearly defined and to reduce prevalence of explosive weaponry. This will also add further readability on the battlefield to ensure you know what to expect from vehicles when you encounter them.
The restructuring of loadouts primarily focuses on our ground vehicles, and we’ll both remove and add weapons to each available vehicle loadout. For example, explosives will no longer be an option for all vehicles, and overall you’ll find more choice through a larger selection of weapons available to you.
Let’s use the LATV4 Recon as an example of what that looks like.
The LATV4 Recon is one of the most used vehicles in the game, and having explosive weaponry readily available pushed it outside of its intended role as a transport. We’re removing all its explosives, such as the 30mm, 50mm and Grenade Launcher, and will replace them with anti-infantry weaponry instead.

https://i.redd.it/j184rmacrl3b1.gif
Tune in to our Inside Battlefield Podcast, or read our latest Dev Notes blog for full details.

Specialist Improvements

Dozer and Irish will receive improvements to ensure they provide similar gameplay experiences as others within their class.
Dozer
For Dozer we will be enhancing his movement and animations when using the SOB-8 Ballistic Shield. You will now be able to strafe, rotate and pitch with your shield more quickly than previously, as well as being able to traverse ziplines with your shield equipped! Lastly, we’ll also be including two new XP Events to reward further acts of teamplay when playing with Dozer.

https://i.redd.it/yazxm1wfrl3b1.gif
https://i.redd.it/lr57zuklrl3b1.gif
On the receiving end when firing at his shield, we will be increasing its spread and introducing more bullet trajectory upon hitting his shield. This will ensure that during these encounters you still have a fighting chance, and at the very least, won’t be as impacted by your own bullets as before.
https://i.redd.it/2n9xpwaxrl3b1.gif
Irish Irish will receive a balancing pass to the capabilities of his APS-36 Shootdown Sentinel. We’re doing that by having it cycle through new intercept and recharge states alongside an added short cooldown, versus its previous always-on state.

https://i.redd.it/ohe3pnp3sl3b1.gif

https://i.redd.it/5bjv1dy5sl3b1.gif
We’ve also improved its audio, alongside adding new colors to help you identify which state the APS-36 is currently in.
Tune in to our Inside Battlefield Podcast, or read our latest Dev Notes blog for full details.

Squad Management Improvements

Alongside the Season update we’re also adding improvements to the current Squad functionality.

https://preview.redd.it/jnt24yt9sl3b1.jpg?width=1920&format=pjpg&auto=webp&s=e0fb247cecc0cb470fb9894a30fc3b822fe7e678
Squads and Players
The Squad Menu is now separated to give you a full overview of all squads on your team. In this menu you can make someone else the leader, and see how many players or friends are in a squad. It also shows class icons so you know how to best complement a squad before joining it. And to add some personal flavor, leaders can also show off their Player Card Tag as the squad icon.
We also worked with the narrative team to come up with code names for each squad for that additional personal touch. One of our personal favorites is Gravedigger -- surely the Gravediggers know how to PTFO. We definitely don’t mess with that squad!
Create and Join
At any time you’ll be able to create or join a new squad directly via the Squad Menu. Previously you could only switch to a random squad, and only from the deploy screen. If you create a new squad then we’ve also added a short waiting period before other players can matchmake into your squad to ensure you can play together with your friends.
Easy navigation
The Squad Menu was created to make it easier and faster to manage and navigate through squads on your team. While before it was unclear when and how to change squads, you’ll now be able to do that at any time and with only a few clicks.
We hope that with this new improved Squad Management experience you feel that you have the control over who you’d like to play with during a match. Once this is in your hands, please stay in touch and give us your feedback about how you feel about it!
Later during Season 5 we’ll also add Squad Orders functionality which allows you to work together as a squad to receive increased XP rewards. In short, PTFO - and get rewarded!
Tune in to our Inside Battlefield Podcast, or read our latest Dev Notes blog for full details.

Other Areas of Improvement

Damage Unit Functionality
As part of Season 5, you will now be able to decide if you wish to show damage units at the bottom of your screen, at the side of your crosshair, or not at all. This new functionality can be defined to your liking via Options > Display > HUD General > Damage Numbers.
Accuracy & Dispersion Changes
Since Launch, our Level Design team has been reworking our maps to react to feedback on cover opportunities, and traversal improvements. These changes have also resulted in alterations to combat distances, and our weapons were tuned for these previous distances and combat scenarios in mind.
Over time, this has resulted in feedback from you about several weapons being too accurate at long ranges without penalty.
With Season 5, we aim to address this gap with balancing the accuracy and dispersion of several categories of weapons. Assault Rifles from All-Out Warfare and their Vault Weapon counterparts will be the first to receive this treatment.
You will notice that the maximum dispersion has been increased by an average of 15-20%, and the weapons will now reach that maximum dispersion level when they reach half of the magazine while on full auto, and full spray mode!
This should encourage everyone to do smaller bursts instead of prolonged fire towards a moving target, and in consideration with the map rework should increase survivability at longer ranges to encourage further up close and personal combat.
We will be assessing your feedback to this change over time and continue to make necessary changes in future updates.
New Unlock Requirements for Lis, Crawford, Zain and Blasco
Lis, Crawford, Zain and Blasco will now be available as rewards as you gradually gain Player Levels through earning XP. Their previous unlock requirements are no longer available. Go get ‘em!
Camera Sprint Movement
We have made adjustments to the Camera Movement when sprinting in Battlefield 2042.
This change is meant to add physicality to sprinting by introducing more immersive camera movement dependent upon the type of weapon and sprint type that you may be using at that time. You will notice a different amount when using an Assault Rifle compared to an RPG for example.
We hope you enjoy this new sense of weight and body motion through the camera. For accessibility you may turn off the new motion in the accessibility options.
On top of that, there are also some golden rules to camera motion in FPS games that ensure your understanding of where you are in space, aligned with what the camera tells you, and we have taken the opportunity to improve that further by focusing on rotations rather than translations in space.
We look forward to hearing your thoughts!
Aim Down Sight Field of View is now active for all players.
Normally a scope will adjust your field of view. With this option set to “On”, the field of view will instead be taken from the field of view you chose in general, in your display settings. Some weapons will not be affected if they have specifically been designed to have a certain field of view that should not be changed.
Why is this important?
The amount of input it takes for your aim to move across screen space changes when field of view changes. Uniform Soldier Aiming calculates your aim rate to take the same amount of pixel distance on screen for a given physical movement of the mouse.
In 4.2 we set Uniform Soldier Aiming to On by default (see our Dev Note for further detail). Setting ADS field of view to On, ensures the consistency achieved by Uniform Soldier Aiming remains the same across various scopes since your field of view will not change when zooming.
Like Uniform Soldier Aiming, this will help to build muscle memory, which is essential to aiming in first person shooters.

  • Players will no longer take damage when destroying Sentry Turrets or Shootdown Sentinels
  • Grenades will no longer detonate from other explosions.
Dev Comment: This change has been made so that each grenade will now have a set detonation timer, increasing the readability as opposed to a chain reaction style of play. Players will still be able to shoot a grenade with bullets.
  • The Penguins have been working hard on their research of the Incendiary Grenade and have found a breakthrough that allowed them to increase the radius by 15%. Toasty.
Concussion Grenade
All Recon Specialists will now be able to use the Concussion Grenade.
We have also made substantial changes to how the Concussion Grenade works in a couple of areas, based on distance to the player and in comparing the direction of the player upon grenade detonation.
The effects of the Concussion Grenade are defined by Near, Far and Frontal scenarios. When it detonates within close range it will heighten the duration and intensity at the point of detonation. Beyond that near range, it will lead to a lessened duration and intensity. This effect is also decided and impacted by if the detonation takes place in front of the player.
  • Near radius has been increased from 6m to 8m
    • Total radius remains unaffected at 12m.
  • Increased the angle acceptance in order to be considered a frontal concussion from 60 degrees to 70 degrees.
  • Duration at which Concussion Grenade lasts has been increased in the following conditions:
    • Near + Frontal Facing from 2s to 2.5s
    • Far + Frontal Facing from 1.5s to 1.75
    • Near + Side from 0.75s to 1.2s
Prox Sensors
Through telemetry and community sentiment, since moving the Prox Sensor out of the throwable slot and into the Gadget Selection field we have seen this gadget decline in relevance compared to the TUGs and other viable gadgets. We have made some adjustments to allow for the Prox Sensor to be an equally viable choice as part of your loadout.
  • Increased the number of Prox Sensors that can be carried from 1 to 2
  • Increased the number of Prox Sensors that can be deployed at once from 1 to 2
  • Reduced the radius of the Prox Sensors scan from 20m to 15m, which will offset some of the benefits of these adjustments.
Angel
  • Fixed an issue that prevented the Tracer Dart from being able to resupply from Angel's loadout crate.
Blasco
  • The Area of Effect for Blasco’s Signal Jammer will no longer tilt when the Gadget is on a slope.
  • Enemies disrupted by Blasco's Signal Jammer will no longer stop revealing their position when the affected player shoots their weapon.
  • Blasco’s Signal Jammer will no longer protect itself from spotting.
Dev Comment: We have made this change to help players in locating Blasco’s X6 Infiltration Device, allowing for a better understanding of where to find the device that is blocking their spots.
Casper
  • Enemy or friendly players can no longer climb upon Casper's drone and fly with it.
  • Added thermal vision to Casper's OVP-Recon Drone when zooming in.
Dozer
  • Dozer's deploying shield animation will now correctly play immediately after throwing a grenade.
  • Dozer's shield will now correctly play a fling/push away animation in 1st person view when being hit by a rocket, missile or tank shell.
  • Fixed an issue that allowed Dozer to jump for an unlimited amount of time while his shield was equipped.
  • Dozer's Shield bash sound is now played when hitting enemies at the edge of the melee range.
  • Dozer's shield can now destroy the Medical Crate, T-UGS, Anti-Tank Mine, Ammo Crate, C5 Explosive, M18 Claymore, Prox Sensor, and Loadout Crate.
  • Fixed an issue which would cause deflected bullets from Dozer's shield to not damage enemy players.
  • Fixed an issue that would cause incorrect animations between first and third perspectives with Dozer.
  • Fixed an issue where Dozer would be unable to switch weapons when in a prone state while switching from Shield to a Melee Weapon.
  • Fixed an issue that caused Dozer to not take damage and enter the heavy hit animation when an RPG would hit his shield.
  • Added a unique shield bullet impact sound for Dozer
Falck
  • Falck's Syrette Pistol projectiles no longer deal damage to Dozer when they hit his Ballistic Shield.
  • Falck's Syrette Pistol will now begin to replenish ammo when the reserve is missing ammo (akin to Zain's XM370A), as opposed to waiting for an entire magazine to be missing.
Irish
  • Fixed an issue that caused the explosion of the Shootdown Sentinel to unintentionally interact with the EOD Bot and remove player input from controlling it.
  • Irish’s Deployable Cover will no longer damage players when it is destroyed.
  • Shootdown Sentinel State tweaks and louder pre-explosion on sticky
Sundance
  • Sundance's Anti-Armor Grenade has been removed from the game.
Dev Comment: Sundance’s Anti-Armor Grenade had poor readability which would result in vehicle players being unable to detect between an incoming missile or an Anti-Armor Grenade. Which resulted in being unable to react suitably with countermeasures. Going forward, the only time you will see “Incoming Missile” alerts is when it is actually an incoming missile.
Zain
  • Fixed an issue that would prevent players from setting the Airburst range on the XM370A for specific structures.
  • XM370A's Range Number will now display the correct distance when looking through smoke.

Progression
  • Fixed issue where earning T1 Mastery on the Defibrillator did not reward the "Jack of All Trades" Achievement/Trophy.
  • Adjusted Pilot Kill XP to only be rewarded when the victim's air vehicle did not also get destroyed at the same time.
  • Avenger and Savior Kills now include who you avenged or saved in the XP log.

2023.06.02 16:03 No_Drive_3060 How to achieve body recomposition with science-backed methods

Body recomposition is the ultimate goal for many fitness enthusiasts who want to lose fat and gain muscle at the same time. It's not a myth or a pipe dream, it's a reality that can be achieved with science-backed methods. Body recomposition is the process of changing your body composition by reducing your body fat percentage and increasing your lean body mass. It can improve your health, performance, and appearance by increasing your strength, boosting your metabolism, protecting against chronic diseases, and enhancing your physique. However, body recomposition is not easy or simple. It requires a lot of dedication, discipline, and knowledge. You need to follow a specific diet and training plan that balances your calorie intake and expenditure, optimizes your protein intake and nutrient timing, stimulates muscle hypertrophy and strength gains, and minimizes muscle loss and metabolic slowdown. Here are some of the key factors that you need to consider for body recomposition: • Calorie intake: You need to create a moderate calorie deficit of around 20-25% below your maintenance level to lose fat, but not too large that you compromise muscle growth. You can use online calculators or apps to estimate your maintenance calories based on your age, weight, height, and activity level. • Calorie cycling: You need to vary your calorie intake depending on your training days and rest days. On training days, you should eat more calories, especially from carbs, to fuel your workouts and support muscle growth. On rest days, you should eat fewer calories, mainly from protein and fat, to facilitate fat loss and recovery. • Protein intake: You need to consume enough protein to stimulate muscle protein synthesis and prevent muscle loss. A good rule of thumb is to eat at least 0.8 grams of protein per pound of body weight per day (1.8 grams per kg). You should also aim for at least 20 grams of protein per meal and include a fast-digesting protein source like whey in your pre-workout and post-workout meals. • Strength training: You need to perform resistance training at least 3 times per week using a variety of exercises that target all major muscle groups. You should also use progressive overload techniques like increasing the weight, reps, sets, or frequency of your workouts over time to challenge your muscles and induce hypertrophy. • Cardio training: You need to do some cardio training to increase your calorie expenditure and improve your cardiovascular health. However, you should not overdo it as too much cardio can interfere with muscle growth and recovery. A good option is to do high-intensity interval training (HIIT) for 10-20 minutes after your strength training sessions or on separate days. These are some of the basic principles of body recomposition that have been proven by scientific studies and anecdotal evidence from successful bodybuilders. By following these guidelines and being consistent with your diet and training, you can achieve body recomposition in a matter of weeks or months.

2023.06.02 16:03 Independent-Rise-227 WiMi Hologram Cloud Developed A Convolutional Neural Network-based Face Recognition Algorithm

BEIJING, Jun. 02, 2023/PRNewswire/––WiMi Hologram Cloud Inc. (NASDAQ: WIMI) ("WiMi" or the "Company"), a leading global Hologram Augmented Reality ("AR") Technology provider, today announced the development of a face recognition algorithm system based on convolutional neural networks. It uses the gray value features of face pixels to extract all feature information in the image with its powerful learning capability, thus avoiding information loss. The system uses a combination of three methods, namely local perceptual field, weight sharing, and pooling, to improve the algorithm's performance and reduce the order of magnitude of the weight parameters, reducing the complexity of training the convolutional neural network model. The system uses multiple convolutional and pooling layers to extract and reduce the dimensionality of the input image to obtain a high-dimensional feature representation of the image. For face images, the convolutional neural network can learn the features such as contour, texture, and color of the face, thus improving the accuracy and efficiency of face recognition.
WiMi's face recognition algorithm system automatically learns the high-level features of the image, improving the accuracy and robustness of face recognition. Its training is performed end-to-end, from the original image to extract features gradually and finally outputting classification results. This training method can automatically learn the relationship between features and perturb and transform the training data by data augmentation, thus increasing the diversity and amount of data, improving the robustness of the face algorithm, and applying it to face recognition tasks of different scales and complexity. In addition, the system uses hardware acceleration such as GPU to achieve high recognition speed and meet the recognition real-time requirements.
Face recognition technology is an advanced recognition technology with unique nature and prominent position in biometric technology, which can play an efficient role in more and more fields. Compared with other recognition methods, the face recognition method is relatively friendly, and recognition is fast and accurate, and with the continuous development of computer technology, face recognition technology is also becoming more and more mature.
In face recognition technology, the accuracy of recognition is one of the core measures, and the complexity of the shooting environment, such as changes in facial expression, posture, and visibility, makes face recognition technology encounter various challenges in the practical application process.
The convolutional neural network-based face recognition algorithm has become one of the most effective face recognition technologies and is widely used in medical, retail, financial, and other industries. It is foreseeable that WiMi's face recognition algorithm should have a vast market prospect and huge development potential in the future.

2023.06.02 15:50 No_Drive_3060 How I lost weight with these 5 weird but effective tips

Hi everyone, I've been on this subreddit for a while and I wanted to share some of the things that helped me lose weight and keep it off. These are not the usual tips you hear everywhere, but they worked for me and maybe they will work for you too. 1. Drink water before every meal.This is a simple way to reduce your appetite and calorie intake. According to Mayo Clinic, drinking water before meals can help you lose an extra 4.4 pounds over 12 weeks compared to not drinking water. Plus, it keeps you hydrated and helps your digestion. 2. Use smaller plates and bowls.This is a psychological trick that makes you eat less without feeling deprived. According to NHS, using smaller plates and bowls can help you gradually get used to eating smaller portions without going hungry. It takes about 20 minutes for your stomach to tell your brain it's full, so eat slowly and stop eating before you feel full. 3. Do not ban any foods from your diet.This may sound counterintuitive, but banning foods will only make you crave them more and eventually binge on them. Instead, allow yourself to enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within your daily calorie allowance. NHS says there's no reason you cannot enjoy the occasional treat as long as you stay within your daily calorie allowance. 4. Get more active in your daily life.You do not have to join a gym or do intense workouts to burn calories and improve your health. You can find ways to be more active in your everyday life, such as taking the stairs instead of the elevator, walking or cycling instead of driving, doing household chores, gardening, playing with your kids or pets, etc. CDC says being active is key to losing weight and keeping it off. 5. Manage your stress levels.Stress can make it harder to lose weight because it triggers hormones that increase your appetite and make you store fat. It can also make you reach for comfort foods that are high in fat and sugar. To cope with stress, try to find healthy ways to relax, such as meditation, yoga, breathing exercises, listening to music, reading a book, etc. CDC says stress management is important for achieving healthy weight loss. These are some of the non-standard tips that helped me lose weight and keep it off. I hope they will help you too. Remember, losing weight is not about a diet or a program, but a lifestyle change that involves healthy eating patterns, regular physical activity, and stress management. Good luck on your journey! 😳

2023.06.02 15:36 soylentsoyboy 2 year old Huel Black Powder?

I have some old Huel Black powder that I never got around to finishing and I'm planning on jumping on the weight loss wagon again and using Huel to help me achieve my goals. I have about 3 huel black bags all open from about 2 years ago that I've kept shut and stored in my kitchen cabinet. Is the powder still safe to consume? Some powder I even got from late 2020. It does not look or smell bad, just a little worried it could make me sick. Anyone use powder that old before?

2023.06.02 15:25 EnvironmentalWar1988 So you got Tirzepitide… Now what?!?!?

I have worked on this over time but thought I would post it as it might help a few people. I’d also love to make improvements or fix anything that is not accurate so would appreciate feedback. I’m on Mounjaro but have modified this for peptide and compounders use. I figured this sub might also find it beneficial.
These are not set rules, but rather a guide that has been found helpful by myself and others. In the early stages of taking the drug, the following steps may prove to be helpful:
Managing side effects:
Note: Some people have no side effects and some people have a lot. Each person is different. If you don’t have indigestion, don’t just take a Med but have it on hand. Some people have diarrhea instead of constipation, so be prepared but see if you have a side effect before assuming you will have it and taking another medication. Don’t be afraid of side effects or giving shots or any of the other fear thoughts that are stopping you from opening that box and changing your life. You got this!

2023.06.02 15:23 dubious-taste-666 Keto & fertility

Hello! I have been keto for about 3 weeks. 31F, 113 lbs and I’m TTC (queer & 5 failed IUI in) I’m generally healthy, I am not trying to lose weight but to gain muscle, bulk up a bit. Low BP, no known fertility issues, have had all the regular tests.
I decided to try keto bc my partner did it last year and she loved how much energy it gave her and how it boosted her mood. I have generalized anxiety, and have been diagnosed with IBS, and recently have been having bad joint inflammation. Ive read on the keto sub that the keto diet has helped people with all these things - but my biggest reason for doing it is the potential benefits to fertility.
However, I’m curious: is the benefit of keto for fertility that it can help with weight loss, which for someone who is obese or overweight can impede fertility? I’ve also read that it can regulate cycles for people with PCOS, which I see how that would also benefit fertility but I don’t have PCOS and my cycles are quite regular. I’m also curious about why some peoples periods on keto are referred to shark week, are they heavier? Does it perhaps correlate to the uterine lining?
I suppose I’m seeking info - scientific, anecdotes, or otherwise, about how the keto diet can support fertility. I have established care with a new re clinic, and will ask the dr as well, but since I’m moving cities and getting an appointment takes so dang long, it’s not until august. I appreciate any thoughts/info in the meantime!
