Finally had my first use of a baton. by -TipMeBAT- in OnTheBlock

[–]CueCueQQ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

After a couple of UoFs that came out OK, but I was rather hard on myself about, I've come to the conclusion you don't touch a tool until it's ready to use, and you are ready to use it.

Don't strip your cuffs out until they're turned away and hands behind their back. What if they don't comply, you have to put it away, then go for what you need to gain compliance.

Don't pull your OC unless you're going to pull and deploy. Had a colleague who got caught in the threatening cycle because of that. He pulled and put it in the guy's face, then didn't spray.

Since the baton has an extra step to deploy, it's OK to deploy and then reassess the situation if they back off, as long as when you deployed it, you were prepared to use it.

Combat probes scare off the hunted. When combat probing, your advantage is found in speed, so get your probing skills up. They're long trains, but getting them to V really does help; if you want to cheap out, go 5/4/4/4. Get good at using dscan to narrow down your area so you don't have to do a wide pass.

Yea, I saw that, but have no idea how to go about finding such an event. What were they doing, why were they doing it?

This guide is to show people how they can get in and raid either the environment or the people there.

I'd be rather interested to know more about this. What do people actually do in Pochven? I live in a C4, and we have somewhat often found connections to Pochven(both R081 and F216), but very little seems to be going on in system when I've checked. Presumably there's something better than some good mining in there right?

There are locks in a police locker room to prevent theft. by peanut31 in Showerthoughts

Uniform parts, unattached gear, and sunglasses are all things I've had go missing at work. And let's be honest, if I find you with my pen, I have no words for you. The state gave me a can of pepper spray for a reason.

True heir of Timur possible? by Giogiu3900 in eu4

[–]CueCueQQ 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I did True Heir of Timur prior to Emperor, but you can find my playthrough of it here. I'm not sure how much you can learn from that for your current run, but just at a glance, it appears you have more land than I did in 1475, but lack some of the vassals I had. Vassals are useful because they supply free manpower, and siege down stuff you don't care to do yourself. Improvements I'd make from my run would be better ruler luck for my idea groups, and pushing north to fight Bahmanis and Vijayanagar earlier. That sure looks like a lot of corruption this early though, something to keep in mind.

We Were Trained to Hate These Changes by Arde- in Eve

Fuck all dies in wormholes (on average >4T/month over the last 2 years)

As a wormholer, I want to hate you for this, but you're not wrong. CCP has done a very poor job of handling WH space, and no where does it show better than PvP numbers. There used to be so many brawls in WH space, but now I'm making chains that would put Charlotte and Nellie to shame just looking for a Heron to gank.

despite consistently pumping 12 trillion as an isk sink every month.

You mean faucet right? Blue loot is a faucet like bounties, skill books are a sink.

Drifter holes being the ones with the structure around them in special J-space systems, or in k-space systems with the observatory stuff. They are deadspaced, unless that changed whenever Trig holes changed. There aren't rats camping the hole like Trig holes. There are roaming drifters that will warp around the holes, much like a C5/C6 system that has had drifters popped but not killed, which is I guess what you meant. I don't really know what's on the k-space side though, never jumped one.

Drifter wormhole / Triglavian wormhole. They are deadspaced and will have rats roaming the wormhole. Both sides. Proceed with caution.

Drifter holes don't have rats. I think you meant to say that but the way you said it was just a bit ambiguous.

Other minor fact, trig wormholes apparently no longer land you at 70km off the hole if you BM the hole. Learned that the hard way the other day. Dunno if that's true of drifter holes too or not.

People who get themselves into serious financial trouble don't do so because of lack of funds. A poor person living paycheck to paycheck is unlikely to get themselves into serious debt as they can't get a loan worth many thousands of dollars in the first place. Having debt isn't the issue for security clearance anyway. The issue is not paying on that debt. Everyone understands you have a house, two cars, medical debt, and student loans. As long as you're making payments towards that debt, you aren't likely to lose a clearance over it. Stop paying that debt, and you are.

While I don't entirely disagree with you about the general financial situation of the US, and would absolutely agree that some government positions are underpaid(I want a raise is what I'm saying); it's also not why people end up in debt beyond what they can afford, and it's not why people end up selling state secrets.

I've seen some builds that should be able to handle it, and seen videos of them making it look pretty easy too. Just haven't had the motivation to try it again after I spent so much time and effort trying to make it work with my own builds.

I still have some of the weird builds I tried for it too. Things like Mesmers with half a resto rit on it.

It's not so easy. Some departments have done exactly that, but still aren't seeing a great outcome. Because cops will hide or downplay their issues with the therapist. Officers fear reprisals for seeking help in those situations. Sure, they can't be fired for it, but did you want that PERT/SRT/SWAT slot? Too bad, you can't get it now. Promotions go out the window too. And of course the reason will never officially be because you sought out mental health, it'll just be "we found better candidates".

Source data is from ODMP, which only includes on duty deaths, or ODD. Additionally, not all departments report to ODMP, and many departments don't consider COVID-19 deaths to be ODD unless there is a direct line of exposure to a known COVID positive person. I know of one department who has gone so far as to say that the reporting party(the person who called 911), or the suspect has to have COVID in order for the infection to be duty related. Meaning that speaking to a witness who's COVID positive doesn't constitute an infection source that is considered duty related.

ODMP will include a death of a retired officer as an ODD if the cause of death was related to an on duty incident. For example, there's an officer's death from a few years ago that's on ODMP. He died of complications from a surgery, but the initial injury was in like, the 1980s.

It's that same quest for most people too, I bet. Rescue at Minister Cho's Estate. My sin is at it, and stuck. I found a build that should work, but I'm just never feeling tackling it again. My monk is one quest behind and the dread of facing it has kept me from doing the one before it.

A great number of programs have been launched to make mental health a high priority for cops, but the issue is many are fearful of what can happen to them if they seek help, which doesn't help with decreasing the stigma of seeking help.

Lee Valley does make some amazing tools, but I have no clue why you'd want such a high quality tool for this job.

You want to be careful. If you're out furniture shopping, the term actually means this. They aren't going to fake you out with a balsa bedroom set

No, but they will absolutely sell you something made of poplar, basswood, or "white wood"(which isn't a real wood, it's usually a combo of trashy hardwoods), and explain to you that southern yellow pine is a softwood. SYP is going to make for harder, longer lasting furniture. The meaning of softwood vs hardwood is going to change to meet the ideal selling platform if you're at a large furniture retailer.

I'm not saying you need to know exactly what every wood's Janka is before you buy furniture. The difference between hardwoods and softwoods means a lot more to a woodworker or furniture maker(where it may change what tools we use) than it does to a buyer, but it's absolutely worth knowing a tiny bit about what you're getting when furniture shopping.

Independent contractors are employed by someone else. It's not who hired that company's job to deal with these things, it's the direct employer.

15 employees is likely used as the point of it no longer being a small business, or family business.
