is it normal that I need to apply more sunscreen to certain parts of my body?
  • I know people that would easily get sun burnt on their nose. I suppose certain parts of your body would be more sensitive to the sun but I'm not certain what causes that. hoping someone with more knowledge and chip in.

    I apply sunscreen to all parts of my body if I'm going out to the sun for long periods of time. I haven't noticed certain parts of my body being more sensitive than others either.

    slight tangent: Dermatologists all recommend against tanning and especially recommend wearing sunscreen if you're going to be at a higher than 3/4 UV indexed sunlight for prolonged periods of time. It damages skin and encourages skin cancer.

  • Democrats Need to Wake Up From Their ‘West Wing’ Fantasy
  • Republicans were expected to grab both chambers of Congress, and own house by a huge margin. Instead they have such a narrow margin of control of the House, they actually couldn't get crap done, and removed their speaker of the house, had some 7 votes for a replacement before exasperatingly arriving at Johnson.

  • Bernie Sanders urges Dems to 'stop the bickering' and back Biden
  • Because Republicans fall in line. Republicans are on record saying if Trump ever gets elected president, it will be the death of the party. Now, those same people have orange paint on their lips from kissing his ass so much. They don't question Trump's crazy ideas or statements, because he's the party leader. Democrats don't do that, and at times it's good to question our candidates, I feel this is not that time.

    We're 4 months from the election. The DNC convention is even sooner. No way can a new candidate become familiar with independents and gain their confidence in that time. This change needed to happen way sooner, which is the DNCs and Biden's fault for not encouraging potential challengers to Biden. Now, there's doubt in everyone's minds when if there were challengers that failed to compete against Biden, we would KNOW, that Biden is still the best.

    People are only whining because that's easy to do. Constructive criticism is harder and part of that, in regards to Biden, is offering a solid alternative that everyone will like more than Biden, so quickly. Making ourselves look so disorganized, and adding to this negative headline is not doing us any favors, and Trump loves it.

  • Bernie Sanders urges Dems to 'stop the bickering' and back Biden
  • You do have a point that turn out Is important, but a potential replacement candidate isn't guaranteed to increase turn out, they could be worse. And they would only have 4 months to try to fix things, which isn't a lot of time.

  • It’s vitally important that Democrats now ask one question and one question only: Does Biden have the best chance of beating Trump, or is there someone else readily available who has a better chance?
  • A new candidate will be mince meat from Republican attacks. Right now, there's limits on what they can say that Biden will do during his term. "He will take away all guns!" But Biden was already president and didn't do that, "he's going to force everyone to buy EV cars!" Again, he's already president and didn't do that already, etc. A new candidate will get accused of wanting to do all these things, and Republicans/independents will be more likely to believe them than those attacks being attributed to Biden.

  • that metaphor doesn't apply. The only way you change the rules in politics is by participating in politics. Conservatives have been losing pretty hard since Biden won. If they keep trying to push messaging that doesn't get people to vote for them, then other people will try to take over and try to appeal to those same voters, but with different messaging.

  • 70%
  • So much this. This is a shitty game, but the only way to fix the game, is to play. Keep voting blue to beat the fascist reds, and in primaries, vote with your heart. A strong voter turnout for both will make the red party irrelevant until they move more to the center, while also pushing blue more left.

  • You’re about to board an 18 hour flight. Where do you sit?
  • My order descending in preference: 3. Creed is crazy and fun to listen to as well as Kevin. Just have to keep an eye on my wallet and hope Creed doesn't smell too bad. The smell is the biggest risk I think. 9. Others hate Toby but he's alright honestly, albeit awkward. Basically what many of my friends have been. Just have to work about him being too awkward which isn't too bad. 5. Stanly is quiet while I usually am not. Only reason Stanley is below Toby is because Toby would be more open to talking. Regardless, minding my own business around stanly isn't bad. 4. This is the start of potentially bad seats. Angela may be quiet because she don't like Pam, or talk about God/cats to An annoying extent. Pam may try to talk or be quiet because she's worried about Angela's judginess. This may feel tense or even get arfumentative.

    1. Jim and Dwight are funny to watch when you can remove yourself from the situation, not while sitting with them. If I'm lucky, they will leave each other alone. If I'm not, Jim will annoy Dwight, and/or Dwight will be annoying as well.
    2. Andy and Gabe will be telling crazy stories, fighting with each other, and being dumb the whole home I bet. Very annoying.
    3. Kelly will not shut up. It will be pretty annoying. Ryan would maybe talk to me about investing or be elitist about some tech stuff. From 4 to here, these are all groups of people I would be annoyed with and would prefer not to sit with. Next though are the groups that are way worse
    4. Jan and Michael would be bickering and trying to bring Oscar and mimme into to join sides.maybe throwing stuff or intentional spilling of things . 6 Vance and Phylis seem like they would get way too touchy in a way that they don't care who sees. I think it's worse than dealing with Jan and Michael.

    Volaris website not working for others on linux?

    For a while now, I've been unable to actually view the Volaris website while using Ubuntu 22.04 (In a previous version I believe as well). I've tried Brave, Firefox, and Chrome with the same results so I don't believe its browser specific (as most people use one of those 3 web browsers), which leads me to believe its Linux specific (as I doubt Volaris' website has been broken like this for over 2 years now).

    The website seems to load some background images, but then it stops loading. I'm basically unable to interact with the website in any way. Sometimes I'll get a captcha to even access the website. The workaround that I have found was actually going into the inspector and refreshing. This make the website function again while the inspector is open.

    Any ideas or suggestions?

    www.kqed.org Impact of California Fast Food Worker Wage Increase Still Too Early to Gauge | KQED

    A month after most California fast food workers started earning at least $20 an hour, economists say it’s too early to determine industry impact. While some workers report improved quality of life, others see cuts in work hours and less income as employers adjust to more expensive payroll.

    Impact of California Fast Food Worker Wage Increase Still Too Early to Gauge | KQED

    I’m glad this was passed. Only worry I have is that the the corporations will have the money to take a hit in California. Keep the amount of money they siphon from CA high, translating to higher costs to the CA businesses and, despite the fact that more of their businesses will struggle, use that as evidence that this law should be repealed.

    Should I offer a more narrow salary expectation if the job listing already has a range?

    I'm doing interviews, and I wanted to get an idea of what other people are doing. Say a position offers a pay range between 50-65k. In my interview with HR (first interview), should I try to provide a more narrow range? for instance, " Based on my skills and experience, I'd expect a range between 56-60k" Or should I just tell them the range offered is good for me and let them actually provide an offer? This is of course assumes the entire range is acceptable to me. Any suggestions would be appreciated.

    As the Drug Enforcement Administration takes steps to move marijuana from a Schedule I drug to Schedule III, we examine how California's cannabis industry could be affected.

    How The DEA's New Marijuana Classification Could Affect California's Cannabis Industry

    A bigger “tax break” (in the form of allowing these businesses to actually deduct expenses like other legitimate businesses) for these dispensaries should mean cheaper products, less struggling businesses and also less black market marijuana.

    Better Clarity on Hidden Rooms -ShatteredPD

    I feel like hidden rooms aren't very transparently shown in the game. Currently there are usually 2-3 hidden rooms in each area, with an additional hidden room for every floor that has "many secrets". This is all totally fine, except that its sort of hard to identify them, even as someone that's rather familiar with what they are. By identify, I don't mean to search for them, but to actually identify whether a room is a hidden room or not.

    My suggestion would be that all hidden rooms share some kind of identifier. some suggestions would be:

    • uniquely colored door that, even if burned, has a different color so you'll always know that was an entrance to a hidden room

    • Uniquely colored flooring

    • Uniquely colored walls

    • Indications in the logs when you step into an area or floor ("you have found 1 of 2 or 3 hidden rooms in this area" "There is one discovered hidden room on this floor")

    Hidden rooms can affect your rankings score so allows for easier ways to track that would be welcomed.

    What are your opinions?
