Tourist notes
I was a tourist in Palm Springs from June 1st-June 8th and wanted to thank everyone on this sub whose posts I have been reading for the past few months in preparation for this trip. My wife and I stayed at an Air BnB at Casa Villas, which was the perfect location for us. Just blocks from downtown and thanks to the unseasonably cool first week of June weather, we were able to do a lot of walking.
Here's the rundown:
The Sandwich Spot: We ate there twice. Great sandwiches, friendly staff, and the sourdough and Dutch crunch rolls are delicious.
Wilma and Frieda's: We met a local friend there for breakfast. He had never had breakfast there and he enjoyed it. So did we! Good service and breakfast was great. Enjoyed the blackberry custard French toast.
Otori: I had asked for sushi recommendations and this is where we ended up. The service and ambiance were fine, but the rolls we ordered all had a lot of sauce on top. Not a fan. Maybe we should have ordered different rollls? Will try somewhere else for sushi next time.
Rick's Diner: We are breakfast people and loved Rick's. Great diner food. Super friendly staff. Big portions. And they open early which was nice.
Michoacán Ice Cream: Found this little spot in Cat City and really enjoyed our paletas. Refreshing and fresh.
Happy Nails: Went for pedicures. They were able to fit us in without an appointment. Nice people, comfortable and clean salon, reasonably priced. Customers of all ages, including some elderly men. It was a good experience.
Bliss Chakra Spa: This is down in Palm Desert. We had a 90-minute couples massage. It was excellent. Very comfortable space and the two therapists were amazing.
La Perlita: Initially we were going to meet a friend at La Tablita but they were closed so we went here. Had a very good lunch of shrimp tacos, rice, and beans. Loved it. In fact, our friend who had never been to La Perlita before said he preferred it over La Tablita.
Agua Caliente Casino: Since we were staying right across the street, we popped in to play some slots. The staff is very friendly and we liked that it was smoke-free. (When we lived in CA 7 years ago, smoking was still allowed in the Indian casinos) My wife won 80.00 after just two spins and cashed out.
Koffi: Just a couple blocks from where we were staying. Excellent coffee drinks and friendly staff. Nice space. We never go to Starbucks and are always happy to support local coffee shops. This place is so good.
Billy Reed's: Nope. Our friend who has lived in PS for 30 years wanted us to go there to meet him for lunch and so we did. It reminded me of hospital food. We ordered the soup and half sandwich. It was passable but I would never eat there again. You could tell by the other people eating there that it is a PS institution and that people return over and over. Not my thing.
Luna Sourdough Bakery: Drove up to visit a friend in 29 Palms and stopped in Yucca Valley on our way back down the hill. Really excellent sourdough. We also had a slice of the lemon tart. Fun place and full of locals.
Joshua Tree Farmers Market: We happened to be in PS the week between the outdoor farmers market and the indoor farmers market so we visited the one in Joshua Tree. It was great. Terrific citrus, melons, berries, all the produce was so good. Huge reason we plan to flee the Midwest and return to California. Great produce year-round.
Palm Springs Art Museum: Wow. This is a great art museum. The docents were very helpful. Wonderful art on display. Loved the sculpture gardens. Would definitely get a membership if/when we move to PS.
Other pluses: Free parking everywhere. Four hours of free covered parking downtown. Casa Villas has two very nice swimming pools and a spa. WIDE streets. Traffic signals that are well timed. Not a lot of potholes. Clean streets, we saw very little litter. No "hoards" of unhoused people as some Redditors have claimed. Never felt unsafe. Super walkable.
The only downside: Great airport BUT needs a bit more space for people waiting to board flights.
Thanks Palm Springs! We had a wonderful week. Looking forward to returning and maybe buying a home.

2023.06.10 18:57 human_jpg Acne while on clean keto. What could be the cause?

My current keto diet consists of no dairy, gluten, soy, peanuts, beef, eggs or stevia yet my skin is breaking out quite a bit. I have no idea why this could be happening given that i am trying to avoid processed meats as well.
My drinks and meals usually consist of matcha latte with coconut cream or stir fry with spinach, low carb vegetables and pork, chicken or seafood using lard or duck fat, maybe one slice of Keto bread and keto clusters as a snack.
I l feel like the moment I go back to carbs my skin gets better but it makes no sense to me and would rather stay on keto for cognitive enhancement.
I even stopped eating Pork rinds thinking it could be the culprit but still breaking out.
Did anybody experience the same and managed to fix it? What was the cause?

2023.06.10 18:38 SPONSORE dental veneers

If you've ever wondered if there was a way to make it easier on yourself to take care of your mouth, then you need to keep reading. There are many tips and tricks available, from selecting the right toothpaste to choosing the right dentist. Keep reading to find out more about making your job easier.

Flossing is just as important as brushing your teeth. If you do not floss after every meal, bacteria will build up between your teeth and damage them. Take a few minutes to floss after you eat, and you will notice a difference. Your teeth will look whiter after a few months of flossing on a regular basis.

If you are having a hard time brushing your teeth efficiently, you should consider getting an electric toothbrush. These devices are very efficient and will allow you to clean your teeth thoroughly without having to brush vigorously. This is your best option if you have arthritis or if your children do not brush their teeth properly.
To help whiten your teeth brush using baking soda. Baking soda is known for its disinfecting and cleaning properties. To use simply sprinkle a small amount of baking soda in your hand and dip your wet toothbrush into the baking soda. Then, gentle brush your teeth for at least two minutes.
You can efficiently prevent tooth decay by using a mouth wash that contains fluoride. You should check the labels of the products you buy and look for fluoride. Do not take a fluoride supplement if you decide to use some mouth wash or toothpaste that is already enriched in fluoride.
If dental veneers are only going to brush twice a day, do it when you are first getting up and when you finally go to bed. Early morning brushing gets rid of morning breath and deals with anything that settled in during your sleep. Brushing at bedtime helps your plaque-fighting saliva out, since it is going to dry up overnight.
It's important to brush your teeth at least twice a day. The first time should be after breakfast to get rid of all the gunk on your teeth from your meal and from sleeping overnight. The second time is before bed, ensuring that you clean off dinner detritus and daily build-up.
Considering getting your tongue pierced? Think over this again. Mouth piercings are breeding grounds for bacteria, and no amount of dental hygiene can completely negate this fact. Additionally, an oral piercing can wear down tooth enamel, leaving the area vulnerable to infection. If you don't get this checked out, getting rid of parts of your tongue may be your only option. This should make you think twice.
To keep your teeth healthy and free of cavities you should avoid drinking flavored fruit juices. Fruit juices contain tons of cavity-causing sugars. In fact, although fruit juices sound as if they are good for you, in reality, they have just as much sugar as soda pop. Drink water instead.
Nutrition is important to dental health. To help ensure that you are getting the necessary nutrients eat a well-balanced diet based on the USDA's food pyramid. Your diet should consist of low-fat dairy products. This will help ensure that you are getting the necessary amounts of calcium. Calcium is one of the primary building blocks of healthy teeth.
Brush your tongue. Your tongue needs attention just like your teeth and gums do. Use your toothbrush and brush your tongue just like you brush your teeth. Not only is this good for your dental health, but it can help with any bad breath you may be experiencing, too.
If you suspect something is wrong with your teeth, take care of it immediately. Dental problems can be major ones. Some can even be life threatening. Be sure to take your dental health seriously. Don't avoid the dentist. If something is clearly wrong, make an appointment as soon as you are able.
Now that you've read this article, you're more equipped to handle decision making when it comes to the cleanliness of your mouth. You can make your dentist's job much easier and your life much better by taking a few more steps to make sure that your mouth is well taken care of from now on. You can do it!

2023.06.10 18:17 Black-kage I miss Drama in Marvel movies

I miss when marvel movies were more dramatical and had a little of a soap opera. Theres no problem with humor amd quippness. The problem is when such things break inmersion by using them in moments of tension. A good example is Infinity War. I cant stand Bruce Banner, Dr Strange and Iron Man seriously when they are debating about ice creams after Bruce/Hulk was defeated by the final boss of the Saga.
Other examples are Valkyrie, Bruce and Thor quipping while escaping Saakar. It makes no sense to bring out that "Grandmaster does orgies" in his starship". No one asked out for it and is a joke out of context. It also steals tension to the situation the characters are in.
Is kinda sad. You will never see a scene like Bruce and Betty meeting at Pizza shop in The Incredible Hulk. The scene and OSTs shows you that they loved each other a lot before the 5 years Bruce was Hulk. Same applies when Bruce kiss Betty before jumping from the helicopter or when Hulk get close his finger to Betty after defeating Abomination, expressing that he loves her and their love is impossible. Bruce Banner is just a clown now. Specifically after Ragnarok. Bruce spent 5 years on exile as Hulk and was taken as a comic relief. Same applies with Loki, Thor and Odin. You will never watch a scene such as their last scene together in Thor 2011. Loki saying he almost genocide Frost Giants for his father and for them while tearing, then dropping himself suicidical and then Thor crying with a dramatic OST.
I guess thar they changed the tone of the movies because GoG sold more than Thor Dark World despite you have stuff that takes itself seriously and is considered as a pinacle of quality such as Captain America 2 or stuff whose quips and jokes are according to the context are delivered such as first Iron Man movie. The thing is, GoG absurdity is cuz they are aliens while most of the superheroes are in our world and Earth isnt absurd as Space. Is the same Earth as Phase 1 MCU. Thats my actual problem with American media. They think children are idiots and for that reason they add more of this absurdity, humor and quips. Reason of why American cartoons are usually comedy while you rarely see something like Last Airbender, let alone something like Naruto or DBZ.
I think it has something to do of how childish things became. An example is MCU Spiderman vs Raimi's Spiderman. Raimi's Spiderman wanted to take advantage of his powers to get a car and impress Mary Jane before Uncle Ben died. He was thinking with his dick just as many teenagers do. MCU Spiderman just wanted to be an Avenger. Raimi's Spiderman needed someone close to get killed (and his dead somewhat related to Peter's actions) to change his mindset while MCU Spiderman didnt. Raimis Spiderman had to deal with lack of money, issues keeping an stable job, issues at college and losing the girl he secretly loves while MCU Spiderman just wanted vacations despite never seen the fatigue of his superhero life. Same applies with She-Hulk. Yeah, her issues are different from Bruce for purpose. But having characters like Xmen it makes no sense to Disney to explore She-Hulk. A character who suffers more because men harraser and people love her more as a green monster instead a lawyer than Bruce who was exiled 5 years in a thirdworld favela, training to control Hulk, working low wage job despite having 5 PhDs and endessly searching for a cure with limited resources. Theres no point of comparison. MCU Spiderman and She-Hulk are less interesting because they are less dramatic. They have either fantasy or first world problems while Raimi's Spiderman and OG MCU Bruce Banner had real third world problems.

2023.06.10 17:52 misskristine94 The diary: my first 24 hours on Ozempic

So! It’s happened, my first 24 hours on Ozempic are officially over. Before I started, I went through every single similar post online just so I know what to expect, so I really hope it’ll help someone!
My stats:
Female 28yo
So, yesterday I gave myself my first injection, and here is a little diary:
2pm Ozempic arrived in the post. I cannot tell you how how excited but nervous I got. It gave me such an adrenaline boost.
4pm I finished work, and decided to do it. I watched a couple of tutorials. I hadn’t eaten for a couple of hours apart from a protein shake. I also took one tablet of Cetrizine (anti allergy tablet). In the past, this always helped me with nausea so I thought I’d counteract any potential nausea from Ozempic.
4.15 Shot done, it’s in my body. Wow, I’m so nervous. What if I get a heart attack? What if it’ll kill me? What if I’ll vomit like crazy? I had so many thoughts go through my mind, I couldn’t explain it.
5.15pm I’ve talked myself into having side effects. I was chilling on the sofa and kept telling myself I’m nauseous (I wasn’t) and the anxiety made me nauseous.
7.15pm nothing has changed. I have an ice cream.
9pm Still not much apart from little nausea which would probably be caused by not eating food (I was too scared I’d end up vomiting). I have a sweet chilli chicken ready meal.
11pm A little bit of nausea but quickly evaporates as soon as I have Diet Coke. I fall asleep as usual.
8am Wake up in the morning feeling fresh as a daisy. I slept all through the night. Nothing happened. Miracle!
10am I get some nausea. Again, it’s likely the lack of food this morning as I didn’t really feel hungry + low blood sugar. I have an ice cream and nausea goes away.
11am I don’t feel hungry. Normally by now I’d have had so much food at my desk.
1pm Some more nausea, a little bit more intense but nothing that would make me sick. I have a slice of cheese and Diet Coke and it goes away.
3pm I still feel full. I have a lollipop just to keep potential nausea away.
4pm I feel absolutely fine. Currently sat in the garden typing this and drinking Diet Coke. I’m working away on my ipad and I feel great. I still feel full, I don’t know if it’s ozempic kicking in, or if I’m just talking myself into not being hungry. Either way, I’m not craving anything. It’s only been 24 hours and I already don’t think about food. Having suffered from severe eating disorder in the past (anorexia + binge eating), this is probably the best thing that’s happened to me. I feel free. It’s only been 24 hours, I don’t think about food, I don’t think what to eat next, how many calories I’m going to eat, how many I’ve consumed, if I’m fat, if I’ve eaten too much. NOTHING. My brain is clear. I’m sitting here smiling like crazy, because something I’ve done since I was 14 is no longer there. No brain fog, no anxiety. Is this what normal people feel? Is it normal to not think about food constantly? Wow, it’s been life changing. Can I stay like this forever?
TL;DR 24 hours on Ozempic, no major side effects apart from a little nausea that was easily cured with a slice of cheese and Diet Coke. I no longer think about food constantly, and my brain is so clear.
Let me know if you’d like me to do a one week summary next Friday!

2023.06.10 16:52 F5x9 Hit that pizza craving without pizza with one weird trick

Usually, I make dairy-free pizza by just skipping the cheese. Works great.
But I recently tried making something that really hit the pizza taste and I wanted to share.
It’s tomato confit. Slow-cooked sliced tomatoes in olive oil at 250F with garlic, salt, sugar, thyme, and oregano. It tastes just like pizza. There’s no bread, so it is also gluten free. Sure, you can put slices of tomato confit on bread and make a pizza. Put it on anything. There’s a small amount of sugar over a 2-3 pounds of tomatoes, so it could work on low-carb diets as well.
Peel the tomatoes.

Summer Job for College Students: Overview of Full Guide
Summer is a great time for college students to earn extra cash and gain valuable work experience. Whether you want to save up for next semester's tuition or just want to gain some new skills, exploring various ideas for summer jobs and finding the right one can be a challenge. That's why we've put together this ultimate guide on how to find a summer job in college to help you decide on one that suits you the best!
Best Summer Jobs for College Students: 5 Considerations
Amidst the abundance of opportunities, determining how to find a summer job as a college student can be challenging. To help you navigate this process, here are five essential factors to consider when searching for the best summer job that suits you:
1. Compensation
According to our essay service experts, earning potential is one of the most significant aspects to consider when looking for the best summer job for college students. This involves considering factors such as the pay rate, potential bonuses, and additional perks or benefits offered. While the federal minimum wage stands at $7.25 per hour, it's essential to note that some states have implemented higher minimum wages. For instance, California has a minimum wage of $13 per hour. Keep in mind that your earning potential can vary significantly based on the type of job you pursue and the location in which you work.
2. Dedication
When determining how to find a summer job as a teenager, it's important to assess the level of commitment the job demands. Determine if it fits well with your availability and whether you can commit to working either full-time or part-time. Since you may not be able to continue with the same job once the semester starts, prioritize seasonal work options that cater to students like you. Seek out positions specifically tailored for the summer months, as they are more suitable than roles requiring long-term commitments. By doing so, you can find a job that accommodates your academic schedule and provides the flexibility you require.
3. Timetable
Take into account the length of the job and how it aligns with your summer schedule. Evaluate whether the job's timeframe harmonizes with your other commitments and plans during the summer. While earning money is important during this time, it's also valuable to spend quality time with friends and family. Ideally, summer job ideas for college students should offer flexibility, allowing you to maintain a personal life and enjoy free time. Finding a balance between work and personal life is key to ensuring an enjoyable summer experience.
4. Expertise
To find the best summer job for you, it's important to assess your current skills and knowledge and seek job opportunities that match your expertise. Alternatively, consider positions that provide chances for skill development and practical experience in your desired field. Remember that a summer job offers more than just financial benefits; it also allows you to gain invaluable work experience.
If you're pursuing a future career in a competitive field, this experience, along with establishing a professional network, can significantly enhance your prospects of securing a job after graduation. And if you ever need to present your working experience for a summer job resume, simply ask us - 'write my paper.'
5. Reputation
It is essential to conduct research on the reputation of potential employers or organizations that offer summer jobs. Look for feedback or reviews from previous employees to assess the work environment, company culture, and overall satisfaction. A prestigious internship or office job can be highly advantageous for those planning to attend graduate school or aiming to work for well-known companies. Such experiences can greatly enhance your resume and expedite your career goals. Once you have determined your job objectives, you can begin searching for the ideal position. Meanwhile, below, you'll find a list of the best advice for finding summer jobs.

Look for internships in your field of study or in areas that interest you. Your college's career center may have information on available internships.
4. Volunteer - Volunteering can be a great way to gain experience and make connections in your field. Look for volunteer opportunities with organizations that align with your interests and career goals. Not only will you be helping others, but you'll also be building your resume.
5. Consider Freelancing - If you have a particular skill or talent, consider freelancing during the summer months. Freelancing can include anything from writing and graphic design to web development and social media management. Websites like Upwork and Fiverr can help you find freelance work.

Starting Flavor Count: 2,429 (down from 2,972)
TASK OR TRASH - Each flavor gets assigned at least one task or it goes in the trash.


Yup, that’s violet. It tastes very, very violet, without being perfumy. It’s sweet, too, with some chalky sweetness especially in the finish, like a violet candy. It will get a little laundry-soapish with too much, so start low, but it will turn anything floral-purple long before that happens. I don’t get anything I would call an off-note from this.
I need it to make more Mango Beauregarde TASK 1, to make a modernized remix of my old Paradise Cream recipe, and because I want to try Violet Hops, and Jazz Hands (while I still have some Holy Vanilla). There really isn’t much else I want to mix that uses it.
Waffles Vanilla
That is certainly a waffle. There’s a hint of vanilla baked in but I don’t know that it really warrants having vanilla in the name, it’s just a touch. It’s a bit doughy like it’s undercooked but considering how bad some other waffle flavors are, this is definitely one of the better ones. Although it tastes undercookied and doughy in the center and is overall a creamy feeling flavor, it has the nice crispy edges of a waffle. It is a bit nutty if I think about it too hard, around the edges, but I didn’t take hit and immediately go “nuts.” Since the OG INW Waffle is now long gone, I think this is probably my favorite waffle flavor. There isn’t really anything I want (or am able) to mix that uses it, so I’ll just start simple with an attempt at a waffle with butter and maple syrup.
Justwaffle V1 TASK 2
Co. Flavor %
FA Waffles Vanilla 2
FA Maple Syrup 1.5
VT Butter Base 1
VT Golden Syrup 1
Walnut milk? Walnut water? I don’t know, but this flavor is wet. Juicy. Or at least, very moist compared to other nuts. I think that throws the accuracy off quite a bit, but it’s a little more walnutty than WF Walnut. It has that earthy, somewhat sharp top note that I expected from a walnut right up front, but a sweeter, much less distinct nutty thick body that also throws it off of walnut a ways. The whole thing was oddly wet. Could be very useful to combat the dryness that is so ubiquitous with nuts, without being tempted to do something gross like add cactus to them.
I’ll mix some more 2 Flavor Banger with twice as much nicotine as I usually use, perfect for when there’s an open bar. TASK 3
Watermelon (Red Summer)
Sort of like a very authentic watermelon, but not, because it’s so dry. I mean, wetness is like a watermelon’s most defining characteristic. It’s got water right there in the name. This is like freeze-dried astronaut watermelon. It’s also thin and just sort of has that natural watermelon top note minus all wetness and some of the sweetness that makes a watermelon a watermelon. It’s not a bad flavor, but it needs a lot of help.
I have a handful of recipes already in the queue that use this one. Of course I will not be tossing one of the components to the original Strap-On and several variations that I’ve already planned to try and/or try again. One that hasn’t been put on the list yet but will be there now: Fuzzy Strap-On. TASK 4
Whipped Cream
This is my #2 Whipped Cream (OoO is #1). It’s very milky, it manages to very clearly be a dairy product without tasting remotely rancid, like homemade whipped cream. Very full and satisfying, with a lingering milkfat feel like whipped cream. Just a touch of vanilla. It’s a somewhat soft and subtle flavor, lending it an airy, fluffy feel, but not at all drying.
Already picked out at least four recipes that use it, here’s a couple more.
Kahlua Coffee - SSA Tiramisu. If you’ve tried it, you know. TASK 5
hard furry creamy. This one is rated TV MA for coconut violence, but I think I can handle it. TASK 6
Cheap scotch with a big splash of apple juice and a cherry in it. I guess it kind of tastes like whisky. Has a little boozy bite there. It has some peat moss in it that makes it tastes a little bit like cheap scotch but, with a weird and fairly prominent fruity sweetness, somewhere between an apple and a cherry.
I have to keep this (for now) to try Kopel’s Fireside recipe again, so I’ll keep it a little longer than than to try his Castle Longer as well. TASK 7
White Grape
Eating freeze-dried white grapes while wearing a little too much perfume. Very jammy sticky sweet and mostly tastes like white grapes, but vapes pretty dry, or at least not wet and juicy like a grape or grape juice. Maybe needs to be fixed with just a little cactus? But, not sure about that because it already packs quite a floral wallop and cactus might amplify that. There’s a little tart tannic grape skin note that’s appropriate but that musky and slightly bitter floral right on top is unfortunate. I’d use this maybe in a small dose to try to make a “purple” flavor taste a little more like a real grape, as well as add that nice jammy sweetness to it, but not for anything else. Almost certainly not as the main flavor in a mix.
Nothing that uses this is something I want to try, and it’s about time I threw something away this week. TRASH 1
White Peach
It really very accurately, almost freakishly, emulates the difference between a classic yellow peach and a sweeter, sugary white peach. However, it’s a little thin, and a little dry, and I get some throat irritation from it. Gets a bit too sharp and floral if taken up too high, and can overtake a mix while still not being especially bold.
Although it can be a little tricky to work with, this is one of the greatest peach flavors by comparison.
I need it for one of my all-time favorites, Blue Eyes White Dragon TASK 8
I’ve already picked out about eight recipes that make use of it, including two I hope to find time to mix up today. I’ll also try Yet Another Peaches and Cream - just four flavors that look great together. TASK 9
Wine Champagne
Careful with this one. I tried 3-4% shake and vape because my 2% steeped sample was fairly weak and was weird, like rotten grapes. Possibly this just needs to stay a soft, background-type flavor. 2% is not rotten, just fermented. Isn’t fizzy. It’s more like white wine than champagne. Sweet-tart, almost but not quite vinegary tartness. It tastes even more like white wine than FA White Wine, which is more of a brighter white grape flavor, and a good one at that. This tastes too fermented to just be a white grape juice flavor, it’s definitely wine. Kinda gross as a single flavor, but seems like it could make a nice base for any kind of fruit wine and I’ve tried a recipe with watermelon where it did exactly that very well.
Old Dogs, Children and Watermelon Wine was the aforementioned recipe. I liked it very much when I tried it years ago, will give it another shot. TASK 10 It’s also in a Mango Champagne recipe I’ve already planned to try.
Wine White
Somewhere around halfway between a semi-sweet white table wine and white grape juice. Not floral at all. A little fermentedish, but not really boozy. Smooth. Lightly sweet. Not especially thin, more thick-ish. Not dry, actually slightly juicy. Really nothing to complain about here. Fairly light flavor at 1.5%, tastes like it could easily go higher % especially if it is to be the main flavor in a mix. Could easily pass for a bit of white grape flavor in a mix. Better than FA White Grape (that one’s too floral as well as a bit dry).
It’s not a bad flavor, but I can’t find a recipe I want to mix that uses it, and don’t feel inspired to create one. TRASH 2
Sort of tastes like a donut but more of a generic pastry, wrapped around a little bit of fruit that tastes distinctly red but not on point for any particular red fruit such as raspberry or strawberry. Sweet and complex, but also dry and thin, not a thick and rich pastry or especially gooey filling. Also, very slightly harsh. Maybe you could use it to build a fruit-filled donut, but both the donut part and the filling part will need a lot of help, and at that point it’s sort of a why bother type of situation unless maybe it’s a bridge-type of flavor, but arguably that’s not even something you’d want or need if you’re trying to get any separation between pastry and fruit layers.
I’ve planned to try Bite Me already because it looks fantastic, but had trouble finding anything else I really want to use WoW for. I guess I’ll try this Freak Show recipe, TASK 11, but I’m not super excited about it like I am for most of the recipes I link.
Ylang Ylang
I don’t think I’ve ever tried this. I’ll mix a sample at 0.75%. TASK 12
TRASH 3 Trash, with prejudice. One of the top 10 worst flavors I have ever tried. It tastes like a company of athlete’s foot-suffering soldiers marching through a swamp of Miracle Whip, except that that would be very wet and squishy and this is dry and chalky. Aftertaste like I barfed an hour ago and it came out my nose and I still have a case of the stinky burnies. Worst of all, this abomination is a reformulation of a delicious FA Yogurt flavor that is no longer sold.
Zen Garden
Dry sweet basil with some dry sage in the background. Very Dry. Has a slight woody quality.
Keeping it to try Coconut Thai Remixed. I couldn’t find another recipe that I want to mix, but this one for Gin Blossom by CheebaSteeba has interesting elements and I want to see what just this one small piece of a the recipe tastes like.
Zen Suckle V1 TASK 13
Co. Flavor %
TFA Honeysuckle 2.5
FA Aurora 1
FA Zen Garden 0.75
It’s like you sprinkled a little spice blend on one of those powered sugar donuts to try to make it taste fancy. A cake donut with powdered sugar and an indistinct spice note like light nutmeg/cinnamon/maybe clove note. Indistinct warm spice note is not as prominent as it is in WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough but is quite present. Very sweet, dense, possibly fried (slightly oily mouthfeel but not a lot of greasy taste), not yeasty, cake donut because cake donuts get their rise from baking powder rather than yeast and there is no yeast here. A little dry. Lots of powdered sugar on top and in the finish, almost a sugar lips effect. People say the main or only problem with Zeppola is that it sticks out in a mix and they know when it’s in there… I think that’s more due to the spice note than any other defining characteristic. It’s a shame that’s in there because it would be so much better without it, but I know from recipes Zeppola can be a useful tool, even if it’s unfortunately not the Holy Donut Grail.
Most recipes that appear to pretend that weird spice note isn’t there or can be covered with just fruit donut really interest me at all, but if there is another spice added that probably covers it up/pulls it in a given direction, that’s another story. Cinnayum is one that I already plan to try, because it looks amazing.
On the subject of cinnamon rolls, Banana Cinnamon Rolls. TASK 14
Gooey Apple Pie - as long as 1% FLV Apple Filling is enough to make it just take like cinnamon and not that odd Zeppola spice, everything else here looks great. TASK 15
Double Glazed Apple Fritter, 1% WF Deep Fried Pastry Dough is sure to make it fritter-ish, but it looks like doubling down on odd spice blend. Hoping 1.2% Apple Filling saves this one. TASK 16
Didn’t get rid of many flavors or give any updates this week, but I said I was going to get through the rest of FA and I’ve done that. Next week, I’ll dive into German Flavours. Definitely a bunch of trash there.
Note about the subreddit shutting down on Monday
When (if?) it comes back up, I’ll resume posting these here. In the meantime, I’ll continue posting them to my own profile, where I’ve already copy-pasted the first 46 installments. If someone has a better idea for where GRoMoMF can best trudge forward with or without Reddit, I’d be very happy to hear it.

2023.06.10 15:18 ddezzy Does anyone else do this?

Does anyone else do this?
I’m not sure what flair to select. I just want to see if I’m alone in this or not. Does anyone else use their bullet journal for spreads AND journaling? I have a digital to do list on my devices to keep up with my daily productivity and tasks so I would find it repetitive to also write those in the journal. (My time is somewhat limited as a mom of a toddler and 33w pregnant.) I’ve been going back and forth with myself as to whether I should just have 1 for journaling and 1 for spreads (I also have another for sermon notes/bible study) But I like the variety it gives the journal? Do I make sense?
Anyway, hope someone relates haha

2023.06.10 14:55 KainsPrincess 30 [F4M] UK - Looking for the love of my life

Hello everyone,
I'm finally feeling brave enough (sort of...!) to try this at last, so here goes! I'd love to meet someone romantically but I'll be happy if I just find a friend, or even if nothing comes of this at all. I'm just proud of myself for actually trying this rather than simply waiting for someone to magically appear in my life.
I'm in the UK and looking for someone here too. I thought of posting this on GBr4r to narrow down the location, but it felt like I wouldn't have much success on that sub (I am looking for a serious monogamous forever relationship rather than 'I'm cheating on my partner and/or want to get fucked by five strangers')
I really don't want to waste anyone's time, so to make it super easy (barely an inconvenience) for everyone in our shared goal of finding a compatible partner, I'm looking for a person who has these things in common with me:
I'm aware I may have now lost 99% of men reading - that works for me, because I'm only looking for one!
So for anyone still reading…
I'm a somewhat broken girl whose soul probably should've been put into a tree or a little bird. I apologise to inanimate objects if I walk into them or drop them and usually say 'Ow' on their behalf. I like to daydream a lot. But lately I feel so anxious and sad I end up spending too much time staring at various screens to make my brain shut the hell up for a while. So settle in for a lifetime of rewatching TV shows and movies with me - and also share my love of finding beautiful music in not-so-great films/shows. One of my favourite movies ever is honestly really bad but I adore it, and the soundtrack is gorgeous and sadly so few will ever hear it!
Physically I am fairly average in looks and height, slim but soft and good for cuddles (peer reviewed and quality checked by an impartial party).
All right, the 'impartial' part is a lie, my cat is kind of biased in my favour.
Here are some other things I love:
I'll end this here since I'm fairly sure no one is reading by now... but if you are, please feel free to send a direct message. And now I'm going to hide the rest of the day because I've realised how scared I am of this entire thing. <3

2023.06.10 14:51 pretty1Np0ssible my positive excision experience - three week update ☺️

hi! long time listener, first time caller, and excited to share my positive endo excision experience.
this was my first ever lap, and it took place on may 22. i was really nervous beforehand for a few reasons:
  1. i had never been under anesthesia before, so i wasn’t sure how i’d react
  2. i have emetophobia, so i was nervous about post-operative nausea and vomiting
  3. i was afraid i wouldn’t be able to handle post-surgical pain but didn’t want to take narcotic painkillers
  4. i was afraid that despite MRI imaging showing two endometriomas on my right ovary that they wouldn’t find endo
the good news: all these fears were unfounded! my surgery day experience was very low stress. my pre-op nurse helped me to stay calm, my anesthesiologist talked me through our plan to avoid PONV (iv zofran and a scopolamine patch), and my team was respectful of my wishes re: narcotic painkillers post surgery - they gave me fentanyl during surgery but assured me that it would be essentially out of my system by the time i woke up in the PACU and agreed we could make the next pain management decision once i woke up and had determined how i felt.
i got a saline drip IV, and then from there, i was wheeled into the OR. once i’d gotten myself cozy on the operating table, my anesthesiologist pushed an anti-anxiety med and i don’t remember anything after that. i didn’t have the experience of counting down for anesthesia - i was just out before i knew it!
my surgery ended up taking about three hours. when i woke up in the PACU, it felt like waking up after sleep. it didn’t feel as disorienting as i was scared it would. once i’d opened my eyes, i realized i was shivering pretty violently. apparently this is a common anesthesia reaction, and my nurses quickly got me warm blankets and heating pads and it resolved quickly. they also checked in on how i was doing pain wise and i felt surprisingly good - maybe a 3 out of 10 on the pain scale. they decided to give me toradol and within moments i was totally comfortable. i also mentioned that i wasn’t sure if i was nauseous or anxious and they gave me another iv anti-emetic. after this, my surgeon came to chat with me. she immediately told me i wasn’t crazy - they found endo on both of my ovaries, my pelvic floor, my broad ligaments and in my rectovaginal area. i also had several fibroids excised and had a salpingectomy to reduce my elevated ovarian cancer risk. she mentioned she had already spoken with my husband and that he had my surgical photos with him. after this, i was very quickly ready to be moved to recovery.
in recovery, i got cranberry juice and water, and was reunited with the recovery snack i brought (gluten free crackers!) and my husband joined me. once i was able to eat my snack, they gave me my first dose of extra strength tylenol and i was ready to pee and get changed for home.
my car ride home was comfortable - i brought a pillow for between the seatbelt which definitely helped. i was able to get into the house and up the stairs easily. the evening of my surgery, i felt up for taking a short walk around the block. afterwards, i was fatigued, and got to rest for the rest of the night.
i never experienced significant gas pains, and my incision pain/internal healing pain was completely manageable with extra strength tylenol and ibuprofen. i had a few days of bleeding after surgery, and used the frida mom cooling pads and frida mom post partum undies to manage it (and loved both!) i also used perfect remedy brand ice packs on my incisions and loved them!
two things that were surprisingly bothersome after surgery were extreme appetite loss (it took a full two weeks for food to stop seeming completely disgusting to me) and going to the bathroom. i wish i had started taking the stool softener pre-surgery, because my first BM on day three after surgery was genuinely traumatic and triggered the worst hemorrhoid flare up of my life.
i also (silly enough) didn’t realize how long post surgery fatigue would last. because i’ve been in chronic pain daily for the past 15 years, i NEVER expected to be one of those people who is immediately helped by excision. but the pain relief HAS been immediate, and since i feel so much better than expected, it’s easy to feel frustrated that i’m more tired than i’d like to be. this week it does finally feel like my energy is coming back, though! i’m hopeful to start light exercise again in a week or so.
let me know if you have any questions, and if your surgery is coming up, here’s hoping your experience is as good as mine!!

2023.06.10 13:33 Monilparih Organic & Natural Turmeric

Organic & Natural Turmeric
Turmeric is a spice derived from the rhizomes (underground stems) of the turmeric plant, scientifically known as Curcuma Longa. It is native to Southeast Asia and is a member of the ginger family. Turmeric has been used for centuries in traditional Indian and Ayurvedic medicine as well as in culinary applications.
The active compound in turmeric that gives it its distinctive yellow colour and many of its health benefits is called Curcumin.
Turmeric is primarily grown in several regions of India, and the country is one of the largest producers and exporters of turmeric in the world.
The following states in India where turmeric is grown:

  1. Andhra Pradesh
  2. Tamil Nadu
  3. Maharashtra
  4. Odisha
  5. Telangana
  6. Karnataka
  7. Kerala
These states are known for their significant turmeric cultivation and production.
Here are some of the notable turmeric varieties cultivated in India:

  1. Alleppey Finger: This variety is primarily grown in Kerala and is known for its long, slender fingers with a deep orange-yellow colour. It has a high Curcumin content and is often used for both culinary and medicinal purposes.
  2. Erode Turmeric: Erode turmeric is predominantly cultivated in Tamil Nadu, particularly in the Erode region. It is known for its bright yellow colour, high Curcumin content, and distinctive aroma. Erode turmeric is highly valued for its quality and is widely used in the food industry.
  3. Rajapore Turmeric: Rajapore turmeric is grown in Maharashtra, mainly in the Sangli and Kolhapur districts. It is characterised by its reddish-brown colour and is considered one of the finest turmeric varieties in India. Rajapore turmeric is often used for its strong flavour and aroma.
  4. Salem Gattha: Salem Gattha turmeric is cultivated in Tamil Nadu, primarily in the Salem district. It is known for its bold fingers, rich aroma, and vibrant yellow colour. This variety is preferred for its strong flavour and is commonly used in culinary preparations.
  5. Nizamabad Bulb: Nizamabad Bulb turmeric is grown in the Nizamabad district of Telangana. It has a bulbous shape and is known for its bright yellow colour and strong aroma. Nizamabad Bulb turmeric is often used for its flavour and colour enhancement in various dishes.
  6. Lakadong Turmeric: Lakadong turmeric is a special variety cultivated in the Jaintia Hills district of Meghalaya, in northeastern India. It is known for its high Curcumin content, strong flavour, and vibrant yellow colour. Lakadong turmeric is highly valued for its medicinal properties and is considered one of the best turmeric varieties.
Here are some of the potential benefits of turmeric:

  1. Anti-inflammatory properties: Curcumin is known for its potent anti-inflammatory effects. It may help reduce inflammation in the body, which is associated with various chronic conditions like arthritis, heart disease, and certain types of cancer.
  2. Antioxidant activity: Turmeric has antioxidant properties that can help protect the body from free radicals, which are unstable molecules that can damage cells and contribute to ageing and diseases.
  3. Potential pain relief: Some studies suggest that turmeric may help alleviate pain, particularly in conditions like osteoarthritis. It may have a similar effect to non-steroidal anti-inflammatory drugs (NSAIDs) but with potentially fewer side effects.
  4. Digestive health: Turmeric has been traditionally used to support digestion. It may help stimulate the production of bile, aid in the breakdown of fats, and alleviate symptoms of indigestion.
  5. Potential brain health benefits: Curcumin has shown promise in supporting brain health. It may help protect against age-related cognitive decline, improve memory and attention, and potentially reduce the risk of neurodegenerative diseases such as Alzheimer's.
  6. Potential heart health benefits: Some studies suggest that Curcumin may have a positive impact on heart health by improving blood vessel function, reducing inflammation, and lowering the risk of heart disease.
  7. Potential anticancer properties: Curcumin has demonstrated potential anticancer properties in preclinical studies. It may help inhibit the growth and spread of cancer cells, although more research is needed to fully understand its effects.
It's worth noting that the bioavailability of Curcumin is relatively low, meaning that the body has difficulty absorbing and utilising it. To enhance absorption, turmeric is often consumed with black pepper or combined with fats, such as coconut oil or olive oil.
While turmeric can be a beneficial addition to a balanced diet, it's important to consult with a healthcare professional before using it for therapeutic purposes, especially if you have any existing health conditions or are taking medications. They can provide personalised advice and guidance based on your specific situation.
Some common ways to incorporate turmeric into your diet:
  1. Spice in cooking: Turmeric is widely used as a spice in Indian, Southeast Asian, and Middle Eastern cuisines. It adds a vibrant yellow colour and a warm, earthy flavour to dishes. Turmeric is often found in curry powders and can be used to season a wide range of savory dishes, including curries, stir-fries, rice dishes, soups, and stews.
  2. Turmeric tea or golden milk: Turmeric can be used to prepare a soothing and aromatic turmeric tea or golden milk. Simply mix a teaspoon of ground turmeric with hot water or warm milk (dairy or plant-based), add sweetener if desired, and enjoy. You can also add other spices like ginger, cinnamon, or black pepper for additional flavour.
  3. Smoothies: You can add a teaspoon of turmeric powder or a small piece of fresh turmeric root to your favourite smoothie recipe. Blend it with other ingredients like fruits, vegetables, yogurt, or plant-based milk for a nutritious and flavourful boost.
  4. Turmeric supplements: Turmeric supplements are available in the form of capsules, tablets, or extracts. These supplements contain a concentrated dose of Curcumin, the active compound in turmeric. It's important to follow the recommended dosage instructions and consult with a healthcare professional before starting any new dietary supplements.
When consuming turmeric, it's worth noting that the absorption of Curcumin in the body can be enhanced by consuming it with black pepper or fats. Black pepper contains a compound called Piperine, which improves the bioavailability of Curcumin. Additionally, Curcumin is fat-soluble, so consuming it with healthy fats like coconut oil, olive oil, or avocado can enhance its absorption.
Remember that individual tolerances and sensitivities to turmeric may vary. Some people may experience gastrointestinal discomfort or allergic reactions, particularly when consuming large amounts or taking high-dose supplements. If you experience any adverse effects, it's advisable to discontinue use and consult with a healthcare professional.

2023.06.10 12:28 TinyFlan4013 "Sustainable clothing brand Patagonia manufactures in the same factories as fast-fashion; textile workers are being exploited"

The Dutch independent investigative journalism platform 'Follow the Money' wrote a article about Patagonia.
"Sustainable clothing brand Patagonia manufactures in the same factories as fast-fashion; textile workers are being exploited"
Clothing brand Patagonia seems to be doing everything right: for its employees, for the people who make the clothes and for the environment. The company’s image – they say they’re in business to save our home planet – is very different from fast-fashion brands like asos, Primark and Nike. But Patagonia’s clothes are manufactured in exactly the same factories and under the same deplorable conditions.
When Yvon Chouinard started creating climbing equipment in his parents’ backyard in Burbank, California, he used steel. Soon he earned a reputation for making the ‘best’ climbing equipment in America. But every time a climber slammed one of those steel pegs into a rock, the gap got a little bigger and eventually unusable. Chouinard realised he was making money by destroying the rocks and therefore also the sport. And so he switched to aluminium blocks, which did not damagethe rocks.
The change was expensive and risky for the young company, but the moral dilemma was reason enough for Chouinard to implement the change. And to be very outspoken about it. It was a success: within a year, 40 per cent of the US climbing community stopped using steel.
Chouinard applied this experience when he started the outdoor brand Patagonia in 1973. He wanted to make only high-quality clothing that would last. And limit the impact on the environment as much as possible. In 1996, the brand switched to 100 per cent organic cotton, only to increasingly replace it with recycled materials. But the responsibility that Chouinard attributed to the company extended further.
In 2002 he decided to give one per cent of sales to environmental organisations every year. In 2011, Patagonia placed a full-page ad in the New York Times calling on consumers to ‘not buy this jacket’ in order to draw attention to the problematic nature of overconsumption in the clothing industry.
In addition, the clothing had to be manufactured fairly: in 2012, the top of the company made paying living wages to everyone who makes Patagonia products a ‘priority’. In 2020, Patagonia launched a campaign encouraging consumers to demand more from clothing brands: ‘Demand recycled. Demand organic. Demand Fair Trade,’ Patagonia urged its viewers.
In 2022, the then 84-year-old Chouinard caused worldwide astonishment, when he gave away 98 per cent of his shares to a newly formed NGO, the Holdfast Collective, which is ‘committed in its fight against the environmental crisis and protecting nature.’ Henceforth, the company’s profits would no longer flow to himself or his children but to the climate. ‘Earth is now our only shareholder,’ Chouinard said. Billionaire gives company away to climate, newspapers like The New York Times, The Washington Post and The Guardian reported*.*
This construction saved the NGO an estimated 700 million dollars that Chouinard would have had to pay in tax if he had sold the company and donated the proceeds to the same NGO. But according to Chouinard, this option allowed him to do something else: protect Patagonia’s values. Because he did not give the voting shares to Holdfast Collective but to a family trust. This allows his family to continue determining the company’s direction.
The company’s turnover – its European headquarters are in Amsterdam − grew by more than 50 per cent that year to about 1.5 billion dollars.
The actions earned Patagonia an image as being the ultimate sustainable frontrunner. In April, Time Magazine named Chouinard one of the world’s 100 most influential people. ‘Patagonia is a company people look up to in awe,’ the magazine wrote.
The complete opposite of Patagonia is a company like Primark. The Irish retail chain is known for selling on-trend low-quality clothes at low prices. Its revenue model is based on mass: high volumes with low margins.
Primark continuously creates new garment collections designed to be worn only a few times, after which they fall apart. The company uses advertising, clearance sales and influencers to urge consumers to keep buying as much as possible.
Media regularly report on the subsequent consequences. One, in particular, is that the people who make the clothes suffer from high production pressure at low cost. ‘Primark supplier accused of locking up factory workers in Myanmar protests,’ The Guardian headline read in 2021. That same year, The Clean Clothes Campaign NGO wrote: ‘Primark uses pandemic to put further pressure on factory workers in manufacturing countries.’
Patagonia and Primark seem like two extremes on the slow versus fast-fashion spectrum. Yet the brands have something in common. Some of their clothing is manufactured in the exact same factory.
PATAGONIA IN AMSTERDAM In 2014, Patagonia moved its European headquarters from Annecy town in the French Alps to Amsterdam. Reflecting on this, current CEO Ryan Gellert told the city marketing website I Amsterdam: ‘We established headquarters here in 2014 because we wanted a place where we could attract and retain pan-European and global talent, [...] and where there was an active community working on sustainability issues. As we searched potential locations across Europe, Amsterdam remained high on our list.’
According to Tax Law Professor Jan van de Streek, tax benefits may also have played a role in the choice of the Netherlands. This is because Patagonia did not register in the Netherlands as a BV but as a cooperative with two US members: Patagonia International Inc and Patagonia Global LLC. ‘Why choose something as strange as a cooperative structure?’ Van de Streek remarks to Follow the Money. ‘Because it is exempt from dividend tax. I think it’s naive to think there’s any other reason for that.’
Responding to questions about this, Patagonia said: ‘Since its inception, Patagonia Europe Coöperatief has paid regular corporate income taxes in all European countries where we do business, including the Netherlands, and has never used the tax efficiencies of a cooperative.’
‘At the suggestion of our advisors', Patagonia chose a cooperative structure ‘because it's the most flexible type of entity that suited our business purpose. However, Patagonia has chosen not to pursue any of the tax advantages available under the cooperative entity type. Patagonia Europe has not paid dividends to its parent company.'

‘No difference’

That factory is called Regal Image and is located in Sri Lanka. To be precise, in the Free Trade Zone of Katunayake, less than two kilometres from the international airport. The industrial estate is guarded 24/7 by Sri Lankan police. Access is only possible with a special pass.
In the factory hall, there are long tables with pieces of white fabric on them. An employee walks past with sea-green paint and a stencil forming the letters ‘asics’. Further along, a machine prints a grey logo on a purple tank top for Decathlon.
‘So far, we don’t really notice any difference between working with Patagonia and working with Primark or Decathlon,’ says Kevin Fernando. Fernando is the manager at the factory, which dyes, prints or embroiders logos and prints on fabrics. Regal Image was recently approved as a supplier to Patagonia, a process that took nine months. Fernando shows the designs for the 2024 summer collection. Light blue fabric features ‘Patagonia’ in pink letters, and a rainbow is printed on orange fabric.
‘Like most clothing companies, we do not make our products, nor do we own any of the factories that do,’ Patagonia writes on its website about the decision to outsource the manufacturing process. ‘We design, test, market and sell Patagonia gear. These are our areas of strength. We pay other companies [...] to produce fabrics and do the actual cutting and sewing.’

‘No control over working conditions’

Patagonia promises to only partner with factories that are ‘like-minded’ and who share their ‘philosophy.’ Patagonia has found sixty-one suitable factories: two in the US, one in Portugal and the remainder in 12 different low-wage countries. The bulk of the products are made in Vietnam and Sri Lanka.
At least two-thirds of the factories that manufacture Patagonia clothing also work for clothing brands that, according to the consumer website Good on You, have little or no sustainability policies in place (Patagonia itself is touted by Good on You as sustainable). This is evident from an analysis by Follow the Money based on data from Open Supply Hub, which aims to make supply chains in the clothing industry more transparent.
One day people make clothing for Patagonia, and the next day, they make items for brands such as GAP, Levi Strauss, Calvin Klein, Hugo Boss, Tommy Hilfiger, Nike, Amer Sports, Asics, US department store chain Target, e-commerce platform Amazon, supermarket Aldi and fast-fashion icons ASOS, Boohoo, H&M and Zara.
‘How is this possible?’ visual culture professor Anneke Smelik responds. Smelik researches sustainable fashion at Radboud University. ‘I know Patagonia as the most sustainable brand out there. I expected them to manufacture in small factories close to home. This means they have absolutely no control over working conditions.’
PATAGONIA IN SRI LANKA Patagonia works with 14 factories in Sri Lanka that are part of (or partner with) two companies: MAS Holdings and the Hirdaramani Group.
MAS Holdings was founded in 1987 by three brothers: Mahesh, Ajay and Sharad Amalean. The company began manufacturing lingerie and later expanded to sportswear, swimwear and T-shirts. With factories in 17 countries and roughly 2.4 billion dollars in turnover by 2022, MAS is Sri Lanka’s largest clothing manufacturer. The Amalean brothers are among the wealthiest men in the country.
The company emphatically presents itself as a sustainable clothing manufacturer. For instance, the company promises to emit 25 per cent less CO2 by 2025 than in 2019, and CEO Suren Fernando expects the group to earn half its revenue from sustainable products by then.
In May 2023, MAS received a Presidential Environment Award from President Ranil Wickremesinghe for the company’s commitment to the environment. The company describes the welfare of its employees as ‘its top priority’. On the subject of paying a living wage, the company makes no promises.
In the early 1900s, Parmanand Hirdaramani, then 16 years old, started a clothing shop in Sri Lanka’s capital Colombo. Today, his great-grandson Aroon Hirdaramani runs the Hirdaramani Group, which has grown into an international clothing conglomerate with factories in Sri Lanka, Bangladesh and Vietnam and a turnover of around 900 million US dollars.
Hirdaramani also presents itself as a sustainable producer. The company’s website states: ‘At Hirdaramani, we do the right thing. We have always done that. It’s about making good decisions today that benefit everyone in the long run.’
Since 2019, all Hirdaramani factories in Sri Lanka have been producing climate neutrally. For 2025, the company has set several targets on material use, water use, waste and leadership. Paying a living or higher wage is not a target.
In 2016, Aroon Hirdaramani and his wife Mona surfaced in the Pandora Papers. It emerged that Hirdaramani owned two investment companies in the British Virgin Islands. The reason for this is unclear. The fact is that companies based there do not have to pay tax on income, profits, dividends and interest, among other things.

Sixteen-hour workdays

Eligibility to manufacture Patagonia products requires a supplier to meet a list of sustainability criteria. Those criteria are set out in a code of conduct for suppliers. For example, child labour, forced labour, or physical, sexual or verbal harassment are not allowed. All national laws must be respected. Suppliers must respect workers’ right to freedom of association, may not force workers to work overtime and must ensure healthy working conditions. Working weeks of more than 60 hours or more than six days in a row is not acceptable to Patagonia.
Patagonia checks whether a factory complies with these standards through independent auditor visits at least once a year, says the brand after being questioned by Follow the Money. Checks are also carried out by the Fair Labor Association (FLA) and FairTrade: two NGOs that provide Patagonia’s manufacturing process and clothing with a sustainability label.
A part of those audits is public. Since 2016, the FLA has publishedassessments of seven Patagonia factories, including three in Vietnam, three in Sri Lanka and one in China. During those inspections, auditors found dozens of violations, varying greatly in severity.
For instance, almost 2000 employees at a factory in Vietnam were paid less for their overtime than what they should have received and employees’ ages were not recorded (thus child labour cannot be ruled out). Another check found out that applicants had to provide their menstrual date. Employees told the interviewers they were not allowed to become pregnant in the first six months of their employment. Less serious violations dealt with issues such as working without protective equipment, blocked emergency exits, or a lack of policies on harassment or discrimination.
One problem crops up in every report. Textile workers in factories manufacturing clothes for Patagonia work far longer hours than legally permitted: up to 17 hours a day and more than 80 hours a week, well beyond what is permissible according to Patagonia’s code of conduct.
‘Long working hours with insufficient breaks often lead to health problems,’ the Clean Clothes Campaign recently wrote about this issue. ‘Managers pressure employees to work 10- to 12-hour and sometimes even 16- to 18-hour days. The number of hours increases as the deadline approaches. Those who protest are simply fired. Moreover, workers depend on overtime to supplement their low wages.’
At the Regal Image factory in Sri Lanka, manager Fernando assures that his employees work a maximum of five days a week and 10 hours a day. But during the tour, a line manager starts talking about the duration of his shift: from eight in the morning to a quarter to 10 in the evening – almost 14 hours. ‘It’s busy,’ says Fernando, casually.
‘This is what the fast-fashion model does,’ says Smelik. ‘Brands want their products to be in store within a few weeks. So when a factory receives an order from such a brand, the production targets and overtime skyrocket.’

‘They talk to us like we are animals’

The office of Stand Up Lanka, a union led by Ashila Niroshine Dandeniya, is located just outside the Free-Trade Zone. She started working in a MAS factory, part of MAS Holdings that is a supplier to Patagonia, in 2003. Her colleagues elected her to represent them as a member of the factory’s employees council. But when she addressed the matter of wages, she was fired. She challenged her dismissal, got compensation, and discovered that there were laws in place to protect people like her.
Now, almost 20 years later, she knows Sri Lankan labour law like the back of her hand. Her office is a hexagon with five windows, all open. Textile workers from nearby factories approach her via these windows to greet her or ask for help.
When a transman walks past, she says, ‘He applied to MAS Shadowline [one of Patagonia’s suppliers, ed] a month ago. They said they didn’t want him because he is transgender. He can’t get work anywhere. And he cannot go back to his village because he is Muslim. His family will shoot him.’
When about six women wearing yellow MAS polos come and ask for a food parcel, Dandeniya shakes her head. ‘We don’t have enough. Since the country’s economic crisis, some families barely eat two meals a day. How am I supposed to choose who can eat and who can’t?’
That evening, she introduces Priya (31). Priya has been working for MAS Shadowline for almost two years, sewing the side seams on leggings or T-shirts. She makes many clothes for yoga brand Lululemon and for Lacoste (famous through the crocodile logo), but sometimes also for Patagonia.
‘The worst part is the scolding,’ she says in her home a few streets away: a room of about 12 square metres. It contains a double bed, a small kitchenette and a wardrobe. Despite the fan on the wall, it is sweltering hot inside. She shares a toilet and a shower with others.
‘My supervisor’s manager is a terrible man. He touches everyone in a bad way, and if you say you don’t want that, you have a problem. He yells at me if I have to go to the bank or the doctor. “Then who will do the work? Who will meet the target?” And he’s not the only one. They talk to us like we are animals.’
When asked about her production targets, she breathes a deep sigh. ‘The other day, Lululemon placed a huge order, and now everyone is stressed. On the first day, we had to make seventy items per hour, but on the second day, it was suddenly a hundred. Otherwise, we won’t make the delivery date.’ During the working day, she does not drink water so that she does not waste time going to the toilet. Despite this, she seldom meets the target. And that means: no bonus.
Without that bonus, Priya earns 32,000 rupees a month (97 euros). Her room costs 7,000 rupees (21 euros), and a meal 300 rupees (1 euro). She has no money left for other things.
‘Since the crisis, we are increasingly hearing stories from our members of textile workers using drugs,’ says Dandeniya. ‘Also in MAS factories that Patagonia works with. They use it to work faster. Sometimes also against the hunger.’
Chamila Thushari, union leader of Dabindu Collective, confirms the story. ‘They use Ice (Crystal Meth) or Babul.’ She points to her collar and to the sole of her shoe. ‘This is how they smuggle it in. The management knows this happens but allows it. All they care about is production targets are being met.’
An employee of a third union, GTZ-GSEU, confirms that drug use among textile workers in the Free Trade Zone is a problem.
Patagonia says these claims are ‘new’ to them and ‘serious’, but says, without evidence, it cannot comment.

A living wage

That Patagonia, known for being sustainable, has its clothes manufactured in the same factories as other much less sustainable brands is seen as an advantage by the company. ‘Patagonia has a powerful brand voice, but we are a quite small player in the apparel sector. Therefore, we are always looking for ways to scale our impact and to elevate the industry standards across the board, bringing other apparel retailers along on the journey with us. So, continuing to engage in shared production facilities is crucial to this work.’
Patagonia wants all people who make clothes to earn a decent wage. In 2015, the company promised that within 10 years, all employees in its supply chain would be earning a living wage that would be enough to live on. That is, enough for food, water, housing, education, healthcare, transport and other essential needs.
With 18 months to go, only 40 per cent of its factories pay a living wage, according to Patagonia. They would not reveal the factories concerned. Suppliers reportedly ‘have the right to maintain their factories’ wage data confidential’.

To determine a living wage, Patagonia uses the Anker Research Institute’s calculation method. According to that method, you can live decently in urban Sri Lanka if you earn a minimum of 83,231 Sri Lankan rupees (263 euro) a month. Priya’s salary does not even cover half that. And at the recently approved Regal Image print factory, the basic wage is even lower: 21,000 rupees (66 euro), says Fernando.
Thulsi Narayanasamy is frustrated by Patagonia’s approach to sustainability. She is director of advocacy at the Worker Rights Consortium, an independent non-profit organization that monitors and investigates labor conditions in the global apparel and textile industry. ‘Patagonia spends millions on green initiatives. Why can’t they pay the people who make their clothes properly?’
Patagonia says it ‘has no authority over how much textile workers get paid, as they are in no way, shape or form the employer of these workers.’ Narayanasamy, however, is convinced Patagonia can pay a living wage, if the brand would want to. ‘They could bring production in-house or pay more to suppliers that’s ringfenced for wages high enough to achieve a living income. It’s so well established that brand’s pricing practices directly impact wage levels, it’s a fallacy to deny this.’
‘I think we should ask ourselves: why don't clothing brands have their own factories?’ She asks the question, then answers it. 'Brands don't want to be responsible for the people who produce their clothes. All brands benefit from that, including Patagonia.
RESPONSE FROM PATAGONIA When asked why it does not pay its suppliers more for decent wages for workers, Patagonia replied: ‘Relying on one brand to simply cover the gap is a band-aid solution and does not serve the factory in the long run. If the one brand that pays the gap were to leave the factory, then those wages for workers would go away, leaving the factory with a shortfall they would not be able to cover. Additionally, if the brand just writes a check to the factory, then there is no guarantee that the money would go towards workers’ wages. The brand has no authority over how much workers get paid as they are in no way, shape or form the employer of those workers.’
About the long working hours, Patagonia says: ‘Excessive overtime is pervasive globally, which is why it is audited regularly. If we find a problem that can be resolved, we work with our factory partners to implement sustainable solutions. This can take many years, but we find this is the best outcome for the workers and the factory.’
In response to the allegations about drug use among textile workers, Patagonia says: ‘These are serious and new allegations, however without evidence, we are not able to comment on them. We are continuing to conduct our ongoing monitoring program and we remain committed to addressing systemic issues to ensure workers’ wellbeing across our supply chain.’

2023.06.10 09:26 Background-Blood-155 Nourishment for cancer treatment

We as a whole realize that what we eat influences how we feel, and a solid eating regimen is vital to calculate forestalling numerous infections. Here are a few understandings into the job of food in cancer counteraction and treatment, and what food varieties would be smart to stay away from.
Nourishment for disease avoidance.
While nobody’s food or food part alone can forestall cancer, research proposes that an eating regimen wealthy in vegetables, natural products, entire grains, beans and vegetables can help essentially bring down your gamble for various tumours. There are numerous food parts and synthetics tracked down in specific food varieties that guide in forestalling cancer. Phytochemicals that normally happen in plants are synthetic substances that lessen irritation (which might build the gamble for disease), upgrade the resistant framework, and have numerous other defensive properties against cancer. Cell reinforcements block synthetics, known as free revolutionaries that might harm cells and increment the risk of cancer. There are different cell reinforcements tracked down in specific food sources and refreshments. Instances of dietary cancer prevention agents incorporate lycopene, beta-carotene, and nutrients A, C, and E, which are tracked down in different leafy foods. Catechins, which are cell reinforcements tracked down in tea, have been displayed to diminish the risk of cancer possibly. A high-fibre diet has likewise been displayed to fundamentally diminish the hazard of colorectal cancer, especially because of fibre’s capacity to tie cancer-causing agents in the colon.
In many examinations, various nutrients, minerals, and phytochemicals have been displayed to have hostile to disease impacts, however, proof proposes that a significant number of these mixtures cooperate in a general eating regimen in cancer control and offer security against specific cancers.
If consolidated in an even eating regimen, the 5 food varieties recorded beneath are at the first spot on the list for counteraction of different sorts of disease:
• Brussel fledglings, broccoli, and other cruciferous vegetables
• Dim green verdant vegetables including spinach
• Blueberries
• Dazzling orange-hued vegetables and organic products including yams, carrots, and chime peppers
• Garlic
In cancer consultation suggested some Food items to stay away from.
While eaten with some restraint, for all intents and purposes any food can be moderately protected, however, research recommends that a few food sources might build the gamble for specific diseases. Even though they may just objective a slight expansion in disease risk, supplanting these food sources in your eating regimen with better decisions may diminish your cancer risk, yet will likewise improve your general well-being. For instance, food sources that are handled contain practically no dietary benefit. When in doubt of thumb, it is useful for all individuals (regardless of cancer) to zero in on eating good food sources and staying away from handled food sources however much as could reasonably be expected.
Another model is sugar. Our bodies need sugar (glucose) to work. Glucose in the body gives us the energy to perform day-to-day assignments. Solid types of sugar incorporate natural products, a few vegetables, entire grain bread items, and low-fat dairy items. Having an abundance muscle to fat ratio puts individuals at a higher gamble of creating sicknesses like cancer, diabetes, coronary illness and heftiness.
How you set up your food may likewise add to your gambling factor. Many individuals don’t understand that overcooked meat and meat cooked on a barbecue might build your gamble of disease. Meat that is overcooked, particularly under high intensity and for extensive periods, can cause the arrival of cancer-causing agents known as heterocyclic amines (HCAs) and polycyclic sweet-smelling hydrocarbons (PAHs). Meats cooked at temperatures above 300°F, and under direct intensity like on a barbecue, may build the convergence of these cancer-causing agents. Utilizing cooking strategies, for example, stewing, poaching and searing can enormously lessen how much these cancer-causing agents.
The main 5 food varieties that have been displayed to possibly increment disease risk according to a cancer therapy advisor, include:
• Great red meat
• Handled meats including pre-bundled franks, shop meats, bacon, frankfurter, and ham
• Liquor
• Broiled food sources, potato chips, and other high-fat food varieties
• Unnecessary measures of sugar
Food during a cancer conclusion.
Similarly, as there are food varieties that might assist with forestalling disease, there are food varieties (or homegrown supplements) that may help in letting aftereffects free from treatment. Any quiet considering a homegrown supplement are urged to check with their Oncologist before starting treatment if the natural cure obstructs their treatment prescriptions. In general, individuals should keep consuming an even sound eating routine, on the off chance that they can, in light of their growth site.
Naming explicit food varieties to eat during a cancer finding is a piece precarious. The area of cancer might cause trouble enduring specific food sources, and not every person encounters similar results from chemotherapy. It would be useful for patients to meet with a dietitian previously, during and, surprisingly, after treatment is finished to assist with guaranteeing the patient is addressing their requirements with a particular eating routine taken care of every person.
