2023.03.27 15:09 GypsumF18 The silent call
I’m David and I have been a call handler for Cambridgeshire police for 5 years, mostly working on emergency 999 calls. In that time I must have taken hundreds of silent 9’s calls.
A ‘silent call’ isn’t always silent, it’s just how we refer to a call where the caller isn’t responsive and no request for the police has been made. They are mostly people accidentally pocket dialing, but you always have to go through the routine of trying to get a response, checking the phone number against previous calls to see if there is any history to suggest someone may be in danger, listening for any background noise to suggest any distress or disturbance. If there is a reason for concern we will dispatch someone to check. Usually there isn’t any concern and the incident log is closed off without any further action.
This call wasn’t that unusual. An operator transfers the call though and states the basic facts; No request made for police. Possible breathing was heard down the line, but that wasn’t very clear due to the background noise which was, quite irritatingly, the theme tune to Peppa pig. So many silent calls are from children playing with phones while sitting in front of the TV, so again, this wasn’t too unusual. The line was still open so I tried to engage with the caller.
“You’re through to the police, is anyone there…?”
“If you can hear me, can you press a button on the keypad, or make a noise?”
Still no response.
I did some system checks. There was a history of calls from this number from seven years ago, but these were all marked 'RESTRICTED' so I couldn’t see any details. After a while, satisfied there was no apparent emergency, I stopped trying and announced that I would be ending the call. Just as I pressed the button on my phone to hang up I heard a voice.
“Hello-” it said just as I cut it off.
I instantly called back, the line answered, but again there was no response. Peppa pig still played in the background, but not a full episode, just the theme tune on repeat. Once again it got to the point of ending the call and just as I pressed the button to hang up… “Hel-”
For fucks sake…
Before calling back again I slid off my headset and walked over to the supervisor, advising him I had a silent call with restricted history, to see if he could check the details for any reason for ongoing concern. I sat back at my desk ready to call back and the supervisor came over to me, quicker than I expected.
“Don’t worry about that history.” he said nonchalantly, “They're old incidents and… it won’t be the same caller. Might not even be the right number, could just be a glitch on the line. If there’s nothing new on the call, get rid of it.”
I know it sounds harsh but it wasn’t unusual for us to be that blunt about a 999 call, we deal with so many. If there is no sign of distress or disturbance we can’t waste any more time on it. A real emergency call could be waiting. It wasn’t unusual for call logs to be restricted either, usually because they contained information on other staff members or their families. Sometimes because the incident related to some ongoing operation only high ranking officers should see.
I decided to give the line one last call back. It rang and picked up as before. The Peppa pig theme played on a loop.
“Hello!?” she sounded weak and confused, “Can you hear me? I’ve been trying for so long to get through! Why won’t anyone help me?”
“Why have you called us? What is the problem?” I asked..
She went silent for a while, then, “Nobody will help me. I keep calling. Can you help me?"
"What is your name?" I asked.
"Nicole." She paused. "I think… please help me. David, help me." Then the line went dead.
I hadn’t told her my name. Maybe someone else called David was there. I called her back.
“Stop calling me, just come and help me, please! My daughter is here! We need help!”
“Where are you?” I ask, trying to get the key information to send someone out.
“37 Butterfield road.” She sounded panicked, breathing heavily, “Please help.”
While she was talking I was already updating my incident, entering the address and sending it for dispatch, “I’m going to get someone right out to you. What’s happening?”
The line cleared.
I transferred the incident to the dispatchers on an Immediate grade, the highest priority grade for attendance. I didn’t understand what was going on, but someone was in distress, with presumably a young child present. We needed to attend.
While I was updating the notes on the incident log the system kicked me out. The incident became restricted and the details on the incident list replaced with ‘RESTRICTED’. It wasn’t unusual for this to happen so only the dispatcher and the control room inspector - known as Oscar 1 - could see the incident, while still sending someone out to the address. I couldn’t understand why this was restricted, but that is above my pay grade.
Nicole kept calling throughout my shift. She was getting increasingly agitated and afraid. I assured her someone was coming out. But after an hour I started to doubt this was the case. I spoke to my supervisor, they said they would ask Oscar 1. Oscar 1 said this was even above them, they have been told not to attend, it was being dealt with by another department as part of an existing operation.
My shift came to an end at 2am. Before then Nicole had called a few more times, I kept telling her someone was dealing with it but I don’t think she believed me. She started to get angrier with me. She kept shouting her address at me, 37 Butterfield road, desperate for someone to come and help her. She was screaming my name at me. The name I had never told her. I noticed on my mapping system that I knew the road, it was near my route home. I was glad to take off my headset when 2am came.
I got in my car and drove home. Guided by compulsion I drove down Butterfield road. I wondered if someone may be there to help by now. I looked out for number 37, but I couldn’t find it. It was a normal residential road but in the middle there was a gap between houses 35 and 39 which was filled with small trees, well maintained bushes and a flower bed. I drove up and down the road a couple of times to check I had the right place, then stopped at a 24 hour off-licence further down the road.
I went into the shop to buy a can of coke for an excuse to ask the lady at the till where number 37 was. She seemed unimpressed, rolling her eyes at me. “Nicole’s house?” she asked, “You’re a few years too late to see it. They knocked it down to stop all you ‘True crime’ nuts coming to gawp at it.” Once I had paid she shoved my drink back across the counter at me. “It’s been almost a decade now. You’d think people would let that poor family rest.”
I left, clearly the lady wasn’t going to entertain any more questions from me. I got in the car and immediately went on my phone to search the internet for references to what happened at Nicole’s house. I found an old local news story headline from seven years ago referencing the murder of her and her children, and another more recent article suggesting the murder remained unsolved. But my search was interrupted by a phone call from an unknown number. I had to answer.
“David!” Nicole shouted, “David, where are they? You promised me help was coming!”
I didn’t know what to say, largely because I didn’t know what was happening. What was I really talking to? “I… I can’t help you!”
The line cleared.
Then straight away, another call, Nicole screaming. A child cried out in fear in the background.
The line cleared again.
The phone rang. I didn’t answer. It rang again. And again. And again. I couldn’t answer again. Would these calls continue? I couldn’t take it. I got out of the car and walked to the memorial garden where 37 Butterfield road once stood. The flowerbed occasionally glittered with gold in the streetlight. I went over and knelt down for a closer look and the ground littered with other sim cards, even whole phones had been discarded there. Some were old and partially submerged in the dirt, but others were fresh. Some were clean enough they could have been scattered here within days. I looked at my phone and considered adding my sim card to the garden.
“You too?” a man said from behind me with a drunken slur. The surprise made my heart stop. I turned to see a haggard man looking at the memorial garden. He stunk of vodka and smiled at me sadly. “It won’t stop her. It never does.”
He was right. Nicole still calls me, on any phone, at any time. No amount of call blocking efforts can stop her. Sometimes I accidentally answer. She still screams for help, facing a danger that has long since passed.
I was pulled aside at the start of my first shift back at work to talk about the calls with an officer who had come up from London. I assume she was from the Home office - she was very official and very guarded. I told her I had got calls on my personal phone and she didn’t seem surprised. She told me it was officially a hoax caller, but we both knew that wasn’t true. I was instructed to keep a log of the calls and email them to her weekly. I have been off work for two weeks now. The woman who visited told me to take as much time off as I needed, on full pay. Her department would authorise it as long as I kept them updated. After all, I wouldn’t be much use going to work just to talk to a woman who doesn’t know she is dead.

2023.03.27 15:08 Beautiful_Clothes685 Idk if I’m being too sensitive or just overthinking a lot
This is something I have always hated about myself and it’s running away from things or what I’m feeling a lot of time rather than facing them, so what happened was my friends were just talking about some college stuff like the attendance and all and they suddenly mention how my attendance this semester was so low, even though they know the main reason for this was me constantly getting sick this semester which is not the problem they also think other than that i was just being lazy and skipped the college, okay I know it might seem that way to a lot of people but the point is that I wanted to escape from the whole college stress and some family problems I was facing. It was a lot for me to take in so the only thing that I’m good at is running Away from the issues and that’s exactly what I did, one of my close friend suddenly said a comment in a weird way (idk if she meant as joking or not) about how at least her attendance is better than mine or something and I just went Blank cause I seriously didn’t knew how to react to that cause it was so unnecessary and out of nowhere. I suddenly started to zone out and they asked if I was okay I said I’m fine even though I was feeling a bit uneasy and weird but I still thought of ignoring it. After that when we were leaving for home I asked her a simple question as to why you used your id to check out of the college when it wasn’t necessary, for me it was just a simple question and I know for sure I asked it in a very simple tone like how I always talk( calmly) but she again out of nowhere started answering me in a weird/rude tone and again I was confused as to what I did wrong for her to get mad at me and speak like that, she suddenly said to me to just shut up which again was the last breaking point for me, I totally went blank at this point and seriously don’t know what to do and how to act fine when I wasn’t so I just started playing games on my phone to distract myself and also them from asking me a question like if I’m okay or not cause if they did asked me that I would have cried right there and ị obviously didn’t wanted that, so after saying bye to them and taking a train to home, I suddenly started crying in the train ( it was almost empty) I was feeling a lot of emotions such as frustration, confusion, anger, etc and all that came out as me crying. So idk if me crying was a good reaction or if I was just being sensitive but what I know is I needed to cry so badly and after I did I felt a bit good. I’m not saying that friend is bad or something I feel lucky to have her in my life and we are really close but sometimes I just can’t handle these type of situation well and I also don’t wanna talk to her about this cause I feel this can make our connection awkward. I just wanted to vent it out and move on that’s why I’m writing this 🤌🏻. Thank you

2023.03.27 15:08 Napalm-1 Huge news F3 Uranium (FUU on TSX): 3 add off-scale discoveries + increase of deposit +even larger off-scale discovery than previous drills
F3 Uranium (ex-Fission 3.0, FUU on TSX) A. Huge news today (March 27, 2023)! https://preview.redd.it/8ce2f65s4aqa1.png?width=1034&format=png&auto=webp&s=e8d15481bcbdd4e904026be9db9028edb2d1c83e
- Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-060), even better than the previous 2 off-scale readings (drill PLN22-035 and drill PLN23-048)!: 17.5m composite mineralization from 231.5m - 253.5m, including 4.98m composite mineralization of >10,000 cps between 243.17m - 252.83m, further including 3.82m of continuous off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity from 244.00m - 247.82m
- Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-061): 14.0m composite mineralization from 246.0m - 260.0m, including 5.08m composite mineralization of >10,000 cps radioactivity between 246.71m - 254.93m, further including 2.81m of composite off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity
- Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-062): 6.0m composite mineralization from 240.5m - 256.5m, including 1.0m continuous off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity between 246.5m - 247.5m
- These holes expanded the strike length of the JR Zone by another 30m, to a current length of 105m
B. What happened before this announcement: 1) First discovery in November 23, 2022
4 months ago F3 Uranium (ex-Fission 3.0) made a first off-scale discovery (drill PLN22-035
) on November 23, 2022: 15.0 m total composite mineralization >300 cps over a 15.5 m interval (between 257.0 m to 272.5 m), including 5.62 m of total composite mineralization >10,000 cps over a 6.3 m interval (between 259.0 m and 265.3 m including 1.5 m of total off scale radioactivity (>65,000 cps) over a 2.0 m interval (between 262.0 m and 264.0 m)
This off scale reading (drill PLN22-035
) resulted in following very high grades: 15.0 m @ 6.97% U3O8 (257.5 m to 272.5 m), including 5.5 m @ 18.6% U3O8 (260.0 m to 265.5 m), further including 1.0 m @ 59.2% U3O8 (263.0 m to 264.0 m)
(December 22, 2022) https://preview.redd.it/nyousp4x4aqa1.png?width=1114&format=png&auto=webp&s=616847017bbad92e8c1f96bad08db9effe07858b
This first discovery was so huge that they planned an additional 20 drills early 2023 to fully expose this new very high grade
(shallower than the high grade deposit of IsoEnergy) uranium deposit.
2) In February 2023: The first signs of additional off-scale discoveries start to come out from those 20 additional drills:
- February 8, 2023: "F3 Uranium Hits >65535 CPS in 30m Stepout and Expands JR Zone North and South": drill PLN23-048
: 14.0m total composite mineralization from 246.5m - 260.5m, including 4.0m mineralization of >40,000 cps
radioactivity from 249.0m - 253.0 m with 0.5m of >65,535 cps from 252.0m - 252.5 m https://f3uranium.com/news/f3-uranium-hits-65535-cps-in-30m-stepout-and-expa-4950/ https://preview.redd.it/g9niyd525aqa1.png?width=1048&format=png&auto=webp&s=e4e0697c88254cc4d2172d771cec545833d4df82
= This is a second off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-048
) -> In coming weeks
the actual high grades of this second off-scale discovery will be announced
- February 21, 2023: drill PLN23-050
: "F3 Uranium Hits 57,100 cps in Widest Mineralized Interval to Date": https://f3uranium.com/news/f3-uranium-hits-57-100-cps-in-widest-mineralized-i-4968/ https://preview.redd.it/lgge5c865aqa1.png?width=1020&format=png&auto=webp&s=ffdd9b23cee8f6afe0886aec2070c5f2a75bedb7
= This is a third high grade discovery (drill PLN23-050
) -> In coming weeks
the actual high grades of this third high grade discovery will be announced What does >65,535 cps mean? https://preview.redd.it/6hgtppk95aqa1.png?width=647&format=png&auto=webp&s=65b1c42987b9e6cc613495f838eb27f35c5aa003
A lot of very good news is expected in the coming weeks: the announcement of the exact very high grades of drill PLN23-048,
, drill PLN23-060
, drill PLN23-061
and drill PLN23-062
C. Let's compare with other uranium discoveries, shall we https://preview.redd.it/dgeaz3vg5aqa1.png?width=799&format=png&auto=webp&s=84dbbc7ec87c4cdd4b7f053316e189736d050810
PLN project of F3 Uranium (ex-Fission 3.0) is very close to the very high grade big uranium deposits Triple R of Fission Uranium Corp and Arrow of Nexgen Energy
When F3 Uranium (ex-Fission 3.0, FUU on TSX) was trading around 0.08 CAD/share, the company wasn't worth anything because they only had a portfolio of properties in Saskatchewan without any proven resources
(= an explorer)
But when they made their first very high grade drill hole on November 23, 2022, the share price started to go higher, because the shift from an explorer without any value to a developer with a new very high grade deposit is a huge shift for a companies value.
Market cap of:
F3 Uranium (FUU on TSX): 130 million CAD
IsoEnergy: today: 273 million CAD (ISO: first high grade discovery in 2018 => 0,30CAD/share in 2018 -> 2.47 CAD/share today (6.00CAD/share in 2021, 3.00 CAD/share in 2022 and 1st 2 months of 2023))
Nexgen Energy: 2.43 billion CAD
Fission Uranium Corp: 437 million CAD
made their first high grade discovery in 2018 and by consequence IsoEnergy went from 0.30 CAD/share to 3.00 CAD/share in 2022 (6.00CAD/share in 2021)
And the first very high grade drill (and the 2 other very high grades drills announced in February 2023 (see lower) and the 3 additional very high grade drills announced today) of F3 Uranium are less deep than the high grade drills of IsoEnergy.
The signs of a 4th, 5th and 6th very high grade drill (see higher) of F3 Uranium are confirming a bigger high grade ore body less deep than the one of IsoEnergy. A less deep ore body means that it will be less expensive to mine, so even more valuable than the deposit of IsoEnergy.
I personnaly expect a 2,5x from 0.42CAD/share in coming 12 months just to get to a comparable market cap as IsoEnergy today with an uranium deposit as F3 Uranium (The results of the additional 20 drill holes are pointing in that direction). And if not in 12 months time, in LT that huge discovery will definitively change the valuation of F3 Uranium (evolving from an explorer without any uranium deposit to a developer with a high grade uranium deposit).
For F3 Uranium (FUU on TSX) to reach a similar market cap than IsoEnergy, F3 Uranium has 2.5x to do from 0.42CAD/share. And that at a moment where the multi year contracting cycle (like in 2005-2008) is approaching the phase of higher production cost contracts (=> the higher uranium sell prices) combine with an unexpected faster growing global uranium supply deficit This isn't financial advice. Please do your own DD before investing.
Here are the grades results in 2018/2019 of IsoEnergy: Source: IsoEnergy
IsoEnergy >15000 cps readying resulted in 6.45% grades Source: IsoEnergy
IsoEnergy >50000 cps readying resulted in 38.2% grades
IsoEnergy >20000 cps readying resulted in 13.3% grades Source: IsoEnergy
Now the radioactive readings of the drill holes of F3 Uranium (FUU on TSX):
- March 27, 2023: "F3 Hits Strongest Hole to Date 3.82m of Off-scale (>65,535 cps)":
-> Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-060
), even better than the previous 2 off-scale readings (drill PLN22-035
and drill PLN23-048
)!: 3.82m of continuous off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity from 244.00m - 247.82m
-> Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-061
): 2.81m of composite off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity
-> Additional Off-scale discovery (drill PLN23-062
): 1.0m continuous off-scale (>65,535 cps) radioactivity between 246.5m - 247.5m
- February 21, 2023: "F3 Uranium Hits 57,100 cps in Widest Mineralized Interval to Date" (drill PLN23-050
- February 8, 2023: "F3 Uranium Hits >65535 CPS
in 30m Stepout and Expands JR Zone North and South" (drill PLN23-048
- November 23, 2022: F3 Uranium (ex-Fission 3.0) hits off-scale reading (>65000 cps)
) => December 22, 2022: resultated in 59.2% grades! https://preview.redd.it/6b0zpqly5aqa1.png?width=801&format=png&auto=webp&s=fba1e95142c54310c00d8e346cf556a15df9a19d https://preview.redd.it/mrny0fk16aqa1.png?width=855&format=png&auto=webp&s=5cbd492b8f280f97cfd2fe270c72cd2aace10f76 59.2% grades (F3 Uranium, drill PLN22-035) is significantly higher than 38.2% (IsoEnergy)
Now we are waiting for the announcement in near future of the 2nd, 3th, 4th and 5th very high grade results.

2023.03.27 15:08 StarPrincess3 Social Anxiety & Dating Progress!!
I’ve had social anxiety as long as I can remember. It was pretty bad growing up I would put it on a scale of 8 out 10 (10 being debilitating extreme anxiety) so it’s been rough lol I had a little breakthrough though. I met someone online and we actually talked on the phone for 2hrs. First time hearing each others voice and I was so scared! I was nauseous just thinking about dialing the number but I pushed myself and did it. I was still kinda shy but nowhere near as bad as it could’ve been. I was able to relax and my heart rate was normal during the rest of the conversation. He’s calling me today and for the first time in my life I’m not absolutely dreading it.

2023.03.27 15:05 According_Complex_74 making money as an aspiring game dev is a freakin' maze - help!
I'm a game developer, and I've been working on a new game that I'm really excited about. I've put in countless hours of work to make it the best game it can be, and now that it's nearly finished, I'm wondering how I can monetize it.
There are a few options I’m considering when it comes to monetizing games, and I'm not sure which one will be the best fit for my game. Here are some of the options I have in mind.:
- Paid downloads: This is the most straightforward option. I could charge players a one-time fee to download the game, and that would be it. But somehow, I think this might limit the number of players who are willing to try the game, and it might not be sustainable in the long term.
- In-app purchases: This is a popular option for mobile games. I could offer players the ability to buy additional features or items within the game. However, I want to make sure that any in-app purchases are fair and don't give players an unfair advantage.
- Advertising: I could include ads within the game, either as banner ads or as video ads that players watch to earn in-game currency or other rewards. But I know how annoying ads can be so I don’t want to distract them from the overall game experience.
- Subscription model: I could offer players a subscription to access additional content or features within the game. But then, I want to make sure that the subscription price is fair and that players feel like they're getting good value for their money.
I think the best approach will be to offer a combination of these options. I don't want to rely on just one source of revenue, and I want to make sure that players have options when it comes to how they want to support the game.
One thing I'm considering is offering a free version of the game with limited features, and then offering a paid version with additional content and features. This would give players a chance to try the game before committing to a purchase, and it would also give me a chance to showcase what the game has to offer.
I am also thinking of creating my game on either Unity or Yahaha
since they have robust monetization features but would need to do some research to better understand which one is the most suitable.
Another thing I'm considering is offering in-game purchases, but making sure that they're not necessary to enjoy the game. I don't want players to feel like they have to spend money to have fun, but I also want to offer some extra content for those who are willing to pay for it.
But my goal is to create a game that people will love and enjoy playing, while also being able to sustain myself financially as a game developer. I'm still figuring out the best way to do that, but I'm excited to see what the future holds.
If you have any thoughts or suggestions on how to monetize games, I'd love to hear them in the comments!

2023.03.27 15:04 Desperate_Prune Best drone for a climber & alpinist
I'm an alpinist & climber. I'm looking for advice on the best drone to use on a climbing trip around Europe. I almost picked up a DJI mini pro 3, before finding out that the height restrictions wouldn't work.
For example, I was planning to document a multi-day climb on the Marmolada South face. This is an 800m+ vertical cliff. Obviously, if I fly out or around the cliff I will almost immediately hit the height cap, even though I will be in line of sight of the drone. The same is true for some other Major alpine peaks that I am planning (Eiger, for example).
To be clear, I don't believe that I would be doing anything Illegal. I will be flying no more than about 100m away from me, always in line of sight & away from crowds, buildings and people, and in an area with no planes that's not in a no-fly zone. Even technically, the wording of the law (in most countries, I can't read Italian) is something like: "Your drone or model aircraft must never be more than 120m (400ft) from the closest point of the earth’s surface.". Tick - it will be, even if it is >120m vertically off the ground.
I am just worried that my drone will be non-functional once I actually come to use it. Is there any drone that I can buy which will allow me to film climbing in mountains, without resorting to some dodgy 3rd party drone-modding website?

| || | submitted by HawkKooky2078 to u/HawkKooky2078 [link] [comments]
Semi Truck Repair Service
If your semi-truck breaks down on the road, the first thing you should do is find a safe place to park it and turn on your hazard lights. Then, you can search for truck repair services near you, such as tire repair, trailer repair, and reefer repair, using keywords like "truck repair service near me
" or "tire repair near me" on your smartphone or other devices. If your truck requires towing, you can search for 24-hour emergency towing services or towing services near you using keywords like "24-hour towing service" or "emergency towing service." It's crucial to have a plan in place for such emergencies and to act quickly to minimize the impact on your schedule and business operations.
2023.03.27 15:03 ElChappie1 I (22m) feel like it will take longer to fully trust my girlfriend(21f) of 6 months again now that she's comes out to me as bisexual.
Me[22m]and my girlfriend[21f]have been together around 6 months now. During this time there have been times in which I have been forced to question and step back in my level of trust in her due to her being dishonest. For added context, my previous relationship ended with me being cheated on, her previous relationship ended with her being the cheater.
Around 4 weeks ago now, she told me one evening that she was going for a walk with her father which I didn't even think twice about, It was only after she got home however that she informed me that she was not with her father and that her best friend had turned up her house exactly when she was leaving with her father and she went on a walk with her best friend instead, she then proceeded to admit to me that this too was a lie and that she had been on a walk on her own. Around two weeks later however, she admitted to me that this had all been a lie and that she had in fact been on a drive with a male "friend". It was then revealed to me that while on this drive, she was forced to perform oral sex on him under the threat that if she didn't, he would drive the car off a bridge. While I was hesitant to consider this cheating upon learning the circumstances, my trust was undoubtedly shaken on the grounds of the lies she told.
In the weeks since we have tried everything to make things work and things feel more or less back to normal now with us doing our usual things together. Go to the gym etc.
Fast forward to this time last week, in the midst of playful conversation, she comes out as bisexual to me. I can't help but now feel like my trust has taken a step back further as now there is the possibility that she could cheat on me with girls as well. We talk of our future together often and I've no doubt our love is real. We plan on moving in together in the somewhat near future.
TLDR-I (22m) feel like it will take longer to fully trust my girlfriend(21f) of 6 months again now that she's comes out to me as bisexual.

2023.03.27 15:02 glupingane What is most beneficial for me to improve upon?
TLDR; What are the base skills when drawing for communication rather than for art?
A bit about my motivations and backstory to get some context for the question:
I used to draw quite a bit when I was young. It was never structured, but lets just say it got me decent dexterity. I can't draw super confident lines, but I can draw from reference and get something that resembles the reference pretty okay, while not nearly perfect or photo-realistic. Another way to phrase my level is that I can draw in a style of my own that people tell me is good, but I am not good enough to mimic any other style.
I have a background in STEM, and a long-time hobby as a photographer, got a games programming degree, and work as a 3D programmer, meaning I have an extremely good conceptual understanding of space, shading, light, (camera) perspective, depth, field of view, exposure, etc. I can draw with code, which has impressively different limitations than drawing by hand. I realize not all of these concepts translate perfectly to drawing, so I don't have practical knowledge of many of these, but the concepts are pretty well understood. Example of that would be the difference between three-point perspective used when drawing, and camera perspectives that rather focus on a field of view (in photography), and 3d-to-2d projection-mapping mathematics (in 3D graphics).
I think that covers my relevant background, and for my motivations; I'm a very visual person, and I have a vivid imagination. I want to increase my general skill level so that I can take something from my imagination, and get it down onto paper (or digital) in a timely manner. I don't really expect to make any of my drawings into artwork (but who knows), and I have no intention of becoming an artist. I want to use drawing as a means of communication with other people, where better drawings equal better communication. The contents of these drawings would range from scenery (real and fantasy), vehicle modifications, 3D props, characters, and a wide range beyond that as well.
I could post some images of recent things I've drawn if that helps, but I don't have access to it right now.
I would expect improving lines and texture to be some basics that are worth spending time on, and probably the skill of simplifying subjects, and there are probably a lot of other things as well, that I would greatly benefit from improving.
What do you think would be the most beneficial areas to improve given my goal?

2023.03.27 15:02 Old-Landscape3601 Staying inside your comfort zone
I've been outside my comfort zone many times but have never found it beneficial or rewarding. I've travelled solo but found it boring and miserable. I did multiple degrees but was never good enough to pass an interview. I teach English as a foreign language and have the offer of a PGCE in the UK , but it's so outside my comfort zone, I wonder why bother? A lot of things about the UK education system antagonize me - the rules, the expectations, the dress code, the pressure and workload and yet if I want to have a sliver of a hope of progressing in my job, I know I have to do this degree (I doubt my capacity to complete it though). A lot of stuff in life makes me think what's the point anymore? I find no joy in travelling, friends are fleeting, everything is meaningless, even the things in which one thinks they find meaning. So is there a point in investing effort into life when it returns duds? In the capitalist system, the best I can hope for is to work until I die, likely in hardship. So why bother and why not just stay inside a small bubble and not push for anything anymore when the net result will be negative anyway?

| || |https://preview.redd.it/pmz18ty55aqa1.png?width=3500&format=png&auto=webp&s=718196ad3b67de51aecbd23c5bca8ed8ab705aa1 submitted by Then_Marionberry_259 to Treaty_Creek [link] [comments]
TORONTO, March 22, 2023 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- Discovery Silver Corp.
(TSX: DSV, OTCQX: DSVSF) (“Discovery” or the “Company”) is pleased to announce results from Feasibility Study drill holes on its flagship Cordero silver project (“Cordero” or “the Project”) located in Chihuahua State, Mexico. These holes consist of reserve and resource expansion drilling and will be incorporated in a Feasibility Study in conjunction with a resource update planned for the first half of 2024.
Highlight intercepts from this current set of drill holes include:
- 32 m averaging 158 g/t AgEq 1 (77 g/t Ag, 0.16 g/t Au, 0.7% Pb and 1.3% Zn) from 108 m and 39 m averaging 241 g/t AgEq 1 (124 g/t Ag, 0.09 g/t Au, 1.2% Pb and 1.9% Zn) from 185 m within the reserves pit in the South Corridor in hole C22-677.
- 36 m averaging 126 g/t AgEq 1 (35 g/t Ag, 0.06 g/t Au, 0.7% Pb and 1.7% Zn) from 481 m and 27 m averaging 133 g/t AgEq 1 (25 g/t Ag, 0.06 g/t Au, 0.6% Pb and 2.2% Zn) from 555 m in hole C22-687; these intervals were toward the bottom and beneath the reserves pit in an area previously modelled as waste.
- 15 m averaging 370 g/t AgEq 1 (137 g/t Ag, 0.05 g/t Au, 3.1% Pb and 3.5% Zn) from 50 m and 23 m averaging 141 g/t AgEq 1 (55 g/t Ag, 0.04 g/t Au, 0.9% Pb and 1.5% Zn) from 143 m in hole C22-671; these intervals were approximately 1.5 km northeast of the reserves pit.
Tony Makuch, CEO, states: “Our recent Pre-Feasibility Study outlined the potential for Cordero to become a top three primary silver mine globally based on average annual production of 33 Moz AgEq over an 18-year mine life. Our follow up drilling since this study demonstrates there is further growth potential still to be realized within our upcoming Feasibility Study. Drilling has returned a number of higher-grade intercepts within and below the reserves pit in areas that were previously modeled as low-grade or waste demonstrating the potential to further lower the strip ratio through converting waste to ore within the pit and to expand the pit at depth. We are also excited about the district-scale potential on our large land package. At Sanson, located 3.5 km northeast of Cordero, and Dos Mil Diez, 1.5 km to the southeast, we have identified large chargeability anomalies with similar intensity to the ore body at Cordero. Surface mapping at both targets has established intense alteration with anomalous levels of pathfinder elements. We look forward to the commencement of drilling at these targets over the coming months.” DRILL RESULTS:
This current set of Feasibility Study drilling consists of 30 drill holes and was focused on two key areas: 1) expansion of reserves within and beneath the Pre-Feasibility Study open pit and 2) upgrading and expansion of the resource in the far northeast of the deposit. Supporting maps and sections, drill hole locations and full assay results can be found here: Plan map, sections & assays Press release with plan map & sections Reserves Expansion Drilling
Drilling has been focused on expanding reserves through the conversion of waste to ore within the reserves pit and through the expansion at depth of the reserves pit. In the northeast of the deposit, C22-675 intercepted 83.7 m of 83 g/t AgEq 1 at the bottom of the reserves pit and 38.2 m of 64 g/t AgEq 1 approximately 50 m below the reserves pit. Also in the northeast, C22-683 intercepted 27.6 m of 148 g/t AgEq 1 approximately 100 m below the reserves pit. All three intervals were within areas predominantly modelled as waste.
In the central part of the deposit, C22-687 intercepted 35.6m of 126 g/t AgEq 1 toward the bottom of the reserves pit and 27.4 m of 133 g/t AgEq 1 directly beneath the pit in areas modelled as waste. In the southwest of the deposit, C22-677 intercepted 31.7m of 158 g/t AgEq 1 from 107.8 m and 38.5 m of 241 g/t AgEq 1 from 184.9 m. Both intervals were within the reserves pit in zones previously modeled as low to medium grade highlighting the potential to increase the grade profile in this part of the deposit.
Detailed drill highlights from the initial feasibility study drill holes are provided in the table below: https://preview.redd.it/kgii8nc65aqa1.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=21b71e108a31d5a4fa7e4b1b409f439bb6313a99 1 See supporting technical disclosure underneath the second table below. Far Northeast Drilling
Drilling in 2022 outlined low grade mineralization with a number of discrete high-grade zones in the far northeast of the deposit, more than 1 km beyond the limits of the reserves pit. Most of this mineralization is within 100 m of surface and is included within the resource pit constraint as part of the January 2023 resource update. 15 follow up drill holes have been completed testing the lateral depth and strike extent of mineralization within this zone.
Hole C22-671 returned intervals of 14.8 m of 370 AgEq 1 from 49.7 m and 23.1 m of 141 AgEq 1 from 142.7 m in hole C22-671. This hole was drilled on section approximately 60 m to the southeast of C22-611 that returned 36.4 m of 94 AgEq 1 from 142.7 m and 14.6 m of 124 AgEq 1 from 186.8 m representing the potential lateral expansion of this zone. C22-662 intercepted 10.4m of 94 AgEq 1 from 273.0 m. This represents the potential lateral expansion of the mineralization intercepted in C22-609 drilled on section approximately 60 m to the northwest that returned 33.1 m of 150 AgEq 1 from 233.7 m and 17.7 m of 115 AgEq 1 from 198.2 m (see July 13, 2022, press release).
The follow up drilling in the far northeast confirms the presence of a broad mineralized fracture system in the area. The orientation of mineralization does not appear to be consistent with the dominant northeast orientation evident in the main part of the Cordero deposit. A more detailed review of fracture orientation along with further drilling is required to develop a better understanding of the main controls of mineralization in this part of the deposit.
Detailed drill highlights from drilling in the far northeast include: https://preview.redd.it/mosy0kq65aqa1.png?width=800&format=png&auto=webp&s=244403a940efeda006385a982bc83d2b2b39393e 1 All results in this news release are rounded. Assays are uncut and undiluted. Widths are drilled widths, not true widths, as a full interpretation of the actual orientation of mineralization is not complete. As a guideline, i ntervals with disseminated mineralization were chosen based on a 25 g/t AgEq cutoff with no more than 10 m of dilution . AgEq calculations are used as the basis for total metal content calculations given Ag is the dominant metal constituent as a percentage of AgEq value in approximately 70% of the Company’s mineralized intercepts. AgEq calculations for reported drill results are based on USD $ 22.00 /oz Ag, $1, 600 /oz Au, $ 1.00 /lb Pb, $1. 20 /lb Zn. The calculations assume 100% metallurgical recovery and are indicative of gross in-situ metal value at the indicated metal prices. Refer to Technical Notes below for metallurgical recoveries assumed in the 20 21 PEA completed on Cordero. DRILL PROGRAM UPDATE:
The Company has now completed 39,000 m (131 holes) as part of its Feasibility Study drill program (since the data cut-off for the PFS study). Feasibility study drilling consists of engineering drilling, resource upgrade drilling and drilling targeting the expansion of the PFS open pit. An additional 12,000 m is still to be drilled in this drill program and will be ongoing in the first half of this year.
Significant target generation work on the Company’s large, highly-prospective land package was completed in 2022. In addition to mapping and sampling work, 125 line-km’s of induced polarization (IP) surveys were completed during 2022 and early 2023 at the Molino de Viento, La Perla, Sanson, Dos Mil Diez targets and at the site of the proposed tailings storage facility. The surveys identified large chargeability anomalies at Molino de Viento and in the eastern portion of Sanson. These anomalies reported a similar level of chargeability intensity to those in the main Cordero resource area. Drill testing of these anomalies is scheduled to commence in the middle of the year with initial drilling focused on Sanson. Currently, 9,000m of drilling is planned for property wide drilling in 2023. This program may be expanded depending on the results of the initial drilling. About Discovery
Discovery’s flagship project is its 100%-owned Cordero project, one of the world’s largest silver deposits. The PFS published in February 2023 demonstrates that Cordero has the potential to be developed into a highly capital-efficient mine that offers the combination of margin, size, and scalability. Cordero is located close to infrastructure in a prolific mining belt in Chihuahua State, Mexico. Continued exploration and project development at Cordero is supported by a strong balance sheet with cash of approximately C$40 million.

Website: www.discoverysilver.com Sample analysis and QA/QC Program
The true width of the veins is estimated to be approximately 70% of the drilled width. Assays are uncut except where indicated. All core assays are from HQ drill core unless stated otherwise. Drill core is logged and sampled in a secure core storage facility located at the project site 40km north of the city of Parral. Core samples from the program are cut in half, using a diamond cutting saw, and are sent to ALS Geochemistry-Mexico for preparation in Chihuahua City, Mexico, and subsequently pulps are sent to ALS Vancouver, Canada, which is an accredited mineral analysis laboratory, for analysis. All samples are prepared using a method whereby the entire sample is crushed to 70% passing -2mm, a split of 250g is taken and pulverized to better than 85% passing 75 microns. Samples are analyzed for gold using standard Fire Assay-AAS techniques (Au-AA24) from a 50g pulp. Over limits are analyzed by fire assay and gravimetric finish. Samples are also analyzed using thirty three-element inductively coupled plasma method (“ME-ICP61”). Over limit sample values are re-assayed for: (1) values of zinc > 1%; (2) values of lead > 1%; and (3) values of silver > 100 g/t. Samples are re-assayed using the ME-OG62 (high-grade material ICP-AES) analytical package. For values of silver greater than 1,500 g/t, samples are re-assayed using the Ag-CON01 analytical method, a standard 30 g fire assay with gravimetric finish. Certified standards and blanks are routinely inserted into all sample shipments to ensure integrity of the assay process. Selected samples are chosen for duplicate assay from the coarse reject and pulps of the original sample. No QAQC issues were noted with the results reported herein. Qualified Person

2023.03.27 15:00 Smurphilicious Haliax's mission, raveling the riddle
I redid this post as the last one got too complicated regarding genealogy and the function of certain parts, it should've been two separate posts. But Maxwell's Demon has immensely simplified presentation of this theory, so as always, lets cover the necessary background knowledge before we get to the tinfoil.
Seven things has Lady Lackless
Keeps them underneath her black dress
She's been dreaming and not sleeping
On a road, that's not for traveling
Lackless likes her riddle raveling
Simple part first. Raveling has multiple definitions, and a lot
of synonyms. Unravel, unwind, untwine. For fun I'm going to list some antonyms for the nerds like me. Bind, knot, wind, twine, lash. Those words seem maddeningly familiar, don't they?
When it comes to roads specifically, raveling means
Raveling is the disintegration of an asphalt road surface. It is due to the dislodgment of the aggregate materials (gravel, sand, and crushed stone). It reduces skid resistance, roughens the road surface, and exposes the layers underneath to further deterioration.
and did you know that Raveling is also an obsolete form of the word Ravelin
A ravelin is a triangular fortification or detached outwork, located in front of the innerworks of a fortress (the curtain walls and bastions). Originally called a demi-lune
Demi-lune because the fortification is a half-moon shape.
Now we get to the mind blowing parts. A riddle also has multiple definitions, the most common is
a mystifying, misleading, or puzzling question posed as a problem to be solved or guessed : CONUNDRUM, ENIGMA
But there's an alternate noun as well. An object.
Riddle - a coarse sieve
Sieve - a device with meshes or perforations through which finer particles of a mixture (as of ashes, flour, or sand) of various sizes may be passed to separate them from coarser ones, through which the liquid may be drained from liquid-containing material, or through which soft materials may be forced for reduction to fine particles
Now do you remember what bone-tar is?
a volatile transporting agent: Regim Ignaul Neratum.
Kilvin donned a thick leather glove and decanted about an ounce of dark liquid from the metal canister into a glass vial. “It is important to chill the vial prior to decanting, as the agent boils at room temperature.”
“The pressure cap is also essential, as the liquid is extremely volatile. As a gas it exhibits surface tension and viscosity, like mercury. It is heavier than air and does not dissipate. It coheres to itself.”
The room was filled with a sharp crackling and hissing as the dark liquid warmed itself against the stone of the firewell and began to boil. From my high vantage, I could see a thick, oily smoke slowly filling the bottom of the well. It didn’t behave like fog or smoke at all. Its edges didn’t diffuse. It pooled, and hung together like a tiny, dark cloud.
Now we compare that to Haliax
“They come,” Haliax said quietly. He stood, and shadow seemed to boil outward from him like a dark fog. “Quickly. To me.”
Haliax spread his arms and the shadow surrounding him bloomed like a flower unfolding. Then, each of the others turned with a studied ease and took a step toward Haliax, into the shadow surrounding him. But as their feet came down they slowed, and gently, as if they were made of sand with wind blowing across them, they faded away.
Okay well Haliax definitely sounds like it's made out of the same transporting agent we just read about. So he'll be our coarse sieve, our Maxwell's Demon. This is ALL you need to know about Maxwell's Demon
Maxwell's demon is a thought experiment that would hypothetically violate the second law of thermodynamics. It was proposed by the physicist James Clerk Maxwell in 1867. In his first letter Maxwell called the demon a "finite being", while the Daemon name was first used by Lord Kelvin.
In the thought experiment, a demon controls a small massless door between two chambers of gas. As individual gas molecules (or atoms) approach the door, the demon quickly opens and closes the door to allow only fast-moving molecules to pass through in one direction, and only slow-moving molecules to pass through in the other. Because the kinetic temperature of a gas depends on the velocities of its constituent molecules, the demon's actions cause one chamber to warm up and the other to cool down. This would decrease the total entropy of the system, without applying any work, thereby violating the second law of thermodynamics.
Now look again at some of the word choice regarding the Chandrian when they use Haliax to transport
But as their feet came down they slowed, and gently, as if they were made of sand with wind blowing across them, they faded away.
. Haliax, our demon/coarse sieve, opened its massless door, and only allowed slow
moving particles like sand to pass through in one direction.
So this is the Chandrian's mission. They want to ravel the riddle, to destroy the road not for travelling, the barrier between worlds. They're bound to the road, part of it, and as long as the road exists they cannot die. But they're also the thing holding everything together. Here's a terrible visual aid that sort of shows the role of our gatekeepers
. Haliax is the bolt kept in place by six locks, keeping the gate is secure. If they die, no more gate, no more barrier, and scrael pour into the world.
“I hoped, perhaps, that you would join me in what I aim to do.” Lanre spoke with a desperate longing in his voice. “This world is like a friend with a mortal wound. A bitter draught given quickly only eases pain.”
“Destroy the world?” Selitos said softly to himself.
It's all about your perspective. The Chaen Dian aren't destroying the
world, they want to destroy one
world. One of the two.
Her eyes brightened. “but oh,” she sighed, “the things they made!”
She laughed at my tone. “no. the faen realm.” she waved widely. "wrought according to their will.
Felurian smiled at me. “then there were two worlds. two skies. two sets of stars.”
If they destroy the road between worlds, then there won't be two worlds. There will only be one world, one sky, and one moon all round and cozy. Here's how this ties into the plot. Last time I raced ahead to conclusions, instead this time I'm going to break things down and let you guess yourself because I don't know for sure. First thing we need to establish is the origin of Denna's new scar.
“Do you know the secret of stones?” she asked as she reached into the water. The hem of her dress dipped into the stream, but she seemed unconcerned. Denna has this scar because of Marten's arrow.
I could see the dull green of old bruises on her upper arms, the remnant of a raised welt on her back. There was a scar on her leg above her knee, new enough that the red of it showed through the white of her shift.
He was dressed differently than the others, wearing a hauberk of bright chainmail that came nearly to his knees with a coif covering his head. BUT that doesn't mean that she is Haliax, or Cinder. Haliax is a shaed, it was the hooded hauberk on Cinder, the chain mail. Glammourie.
His bow hummed and the man sprouted an arrow from his upper thigh, piercing the chain mail, the leg itself, and the armor behind it.
All this means is that there's a link between Denna and one or both of them. We can't know for sure because as you read, the arrow pierced both Cinder's leg and the chain mail / armor. What it does mean is that Denna is definitely a blood relative of one or both of them. The laws of sympathy
Second is the Principle of Consanguinity, which says, ‘a piece of a thing can represent the whole of a thing.’ That will be Kvothe's folly. If Kvothe kills either Haliax or Cinder, then due to the sympathetic binding, Denna will die with them. The riddle will ravel, two worlds become one world.
“In sympathy, most of what you are doing is redirecting energy. Sympathetic links are how the energy travels.” I pulled out the wicking and began kneading the wax into a roughly human-shaped doll. “The first law I mentioned, ‘Similarity enhances sympathy,’ simply means that the more things resemble each other, the stronger the sympathetic link between them will be.”
“This brings me to the second law, Consanguinity. An easy way of thinking of it is, ‘once together, always together.’ Due to Master Hemme’s generosity I have one of his hairs.” I held it up, and ceremoniously stuck it to the head of the doll. “And as easy as this, we have a sympathetic link that will work at thirty to thirty-five percent.”

2023.03.27 14:58 Motor-Bell1837 my preemie died yesterday. I hate theism so that won't help.
She got nec and just died really suddenly. They gave her meds and cpr but nothing worked. They wanted me to ok the end of life support or something along those lines so they kept calling me to say it. I wouldn't. I told them not to call me again unless she survived by some miracle. They tried to call a couple more times and sent a cop here. She had no idea what had happened and started crying and apologizing. She left. I staggered back to bed. I threw away all my ultrasounds and deleted all my pics. I'd do anything to forget her face. I already have kids and that should be enough I tell myself but knowing she was just in my body I just can't take it. I'm still in pain from my milk coming in, still bleeding from having her. Those idiots literally thought I wanted to drive to stl to watch her die. Like I wanted to go through that. I've had a hard life. My mom is not a good person. I have very little contact with her. I have no dad or siblings. I have nonfriends because I spend my entire life in my home with my kids. I'm too poor ro go anywhere. I don't have anywhere near me to go anyway since it is a small town. I haven't had "fun" once in my adult life. I've learned instead to appreciate cleaning and gardening and making things look noce. I have no goals and no interests. I was married for 13 years to a monster. I would've left much sooner but no one would help me including cps or a women's shelter. He eventually sexually assaulted my daughter. That's how we escaped. He lost all rights because of that. I was so happy to be free as of 2020. Every day was a blessing. I've been in that positive state of mind until now. That's what I was afraid of when I woke up this morning. Yep it's all gone. No happiness. The only thing that could make me happy is millions of dollars, a beautiful little newborn i get to keep, and for everyone who has ever hurt me to suffer miserably. I have to go through baby clothes to sell so I can try to make money on Facebook marketplace. If they try to make me have a funeral or something I'd rather die. Funerals are disgusting. I don't have any income so good look getting money from me. I live in punlic housing and I have no assets for them to take besides my car. I hope someone can't take my car.
