2023.06.03 07:15 ForgetterGogetter My (24f) bf (22m) of 1 yr seems emotionally disconnected. We have different love languages. Is there a way for us to meet in the middle?

I love him a lot and am grateful to have him in my life. He’s been so patient, kind, willing to help, simple, and he's unlike anyone I’ve ever met. Currently we’re long distance and live hours apart. I recently came back from vacation with my family and before leaving I cried to him about missing him and us not being able to see each other for awhile when I came back since he was moving back home. Some background, he was studying and living at the same uni I went to, which is in a nearby city.
During the weekends, my parents let him stay with us. That was months into our relationship. They didn’t like to have him drive back so late after our dates and he was very helpful when we needed assistance. After he finished school, he moved in with us so we were used to seeing each other everyday. Sometimes I did get busy and/or distracted with other things, and we came across some challenges but nonetheless, it was a blessing. a month later, he decided to move back home.
Early during the month-long vacation, I missed him a lot. I talk a lot in general, but I was hoping for messages from him that conveyed some interest over the vacation, journey, anything. My love language is words of affirmation. I’m aware that I am an emotional person and also insecure. I think his is acts of service. I remember being really tired once, so he took over doing the dishes and placed a blanket over me :)
I do think we share an equal amount with quality time and physical touch. One of the greatest things I appreciate in our relationship is that we never stopped holding the other’s hand, which has been this way since our first few dates. My phone charge also lasts a lot longer because I don’t use it as much in his presence. Quite early in our relationship, his lock screen on his phone and PC were of me :) and I followed suit
I was disappointed when he did send a message. Not a good morning or how are you but something that was immature and gross. I let him know how I felt. That my needs weren’t emotionally met, how I held back on talking too much because of the lack of response, and asked if he was willing to be more responsive? I mentioned that I was willing to meet him in the middle over the ways we could communicate. I even had a call with his best friend towards the tail end of the trip, who had to reassure me that he loved me because I was too embarrassed to talk to him myself.
He apologized, and then sent me messages on what he was up to with some pictures. I was really happy to see that and let him know. Now, it looks like we’re back to square one. Feels like I have to initiate things. He says that I can come visit him whenever, which is great and I look forward to visiting him soon but I don't know…it’s so casually said. There’s nothing personal, warm, or inviting about it. Feels like sometimes I chase and initiate contact. Once a few months ago, I went through 5 days of not hearing from him. He was planning on picking me up for our usual date but didn’t text me for that long, so I got upset and finally admitted to him what was up which he apologized for.
I’m back home now and it’s been busy but I let him know that I wanted to have a call or play a game with him. I feel like I'm too clingy to initiate though now. I know he’s not the most emotionally mature or aware at times, so I do let him know, but I don’t think I want to have this conversation again. It’s been…hard. I know he loves me and I love him but I feel tired of having to always look for it somehow through messages. I worry that we don’t have anything new to talk about now because we honeymooned ourselves. We have different lives where we are and different upbringings, so maybe that’s factoring in here. He’s the only child of his parents and has older half siblings. I grew up with 2. How do I/we proceed? I want to let him know of my feelings, if they’re deemed justified. I want us to meet in the middle with our love languages. I want us to develop a deeper connection. Maybe we need a hobby we can both do over long distances. I want to know I feel wanted, desired, and loved. I want to be told that I am beautiful. I’m going to stop myself from checking our regular communication channels for a bit. I can see he’s in contact and calls with other people, just not me. Feels bad man. If I don’t make the effort first, will he even notice I’m gone? I know our relationship operates differently in person than online but am I even a priority? TLDR: tired of initiating contact over a recently turned LDR relationship. Bf and I share different love languages, I feel emotionally unfulfilled. Seeking advice on how to meet in the middle and speak to him about this.

2023.06.03 07:14 Trick_Arugula_7037 Am I close to the ending of the statute of limitations on this collection? What restarts the clock?

My husband and I are currently expecting our first baby and looking to purchase our first home soon. The thing is, I have a collection account from Portfolio Recovery that is for $3k. My lender says to actually not pay it off without them looking into it, because it's been on my report for so long, it might not help as much as I think it will.
The collection is a result of a string of credit cards a family member opened in my name when I was 19 due to their own financial issues. They paid off 2 /3 cards except this one, and it went to collections eventually. I'm obviously very annoyed about this and have cut contact with this family member and am confused as to why my other family members don't see it as a "big deal" but that's a story for another time.
Portfolio Recovery opened the account on 6/17/19 according to credit karma. I live in CA, and read they can't sue me after 4 years for this debt.
Can someone please confirm if this is true? And what exactly restarts the debt clock? I have not interacted with Portfolio, but I have logged in their website to see how much the collection is at some point in the past 4 years. The log in is just putting in your info, not making an account. Thank you for your help!

2023.06.03 07:14 thedietexperiment Water softeners

Would love to hear your thoughts and have some questions answered.
I have copper pipes in my home. Would the water from a water softener erode these leading to damage?
Does what kind of salt matter? Crystals vs pellets?
Is it okay to water the grass with water that is soft ends?
Does the salt water that gets dumped in the drain cause damage to the pipes?
Is it worth it?

2023.06.03 07:14 AffectionateBowl1938 Was I (21F) being used by my ex (23M)?

My ex (23M) and I (21F) broke up in October last year due to the both of us not being happy and constantly stressed. We dated for 1 1/2 years. He’s my brothers best friend, and my brother always says,
“I knew it wasn’t going to work out, I know how he is, he was just using you for bragging rights.”
I do feel he ( my ex) just enjoys a lot of attention from people, and I believe that’s why he wants to stay friends.
He enjoyed talking to his ex and letting her call him cute while we were dating. He’d reach out to his previous female childhood crushes while dating, saying “there’s nothing to worry about! I don’t like them anymore, I just want to catch up”
My brother says he was using him to get to me. But I don’t really think that’s true. My brother says that my ex used me for sex and to say he wasn’t a virgin anymore. But he didn’t see what I saw in the guy, my ex didn’t say to my brother, “wow, I can’t believe I’m dating you! After chasing you for 10 years.” And my ex introduced me to his family. Even his coworkers.
But now my ex doesn’t want to date “for the foreseeable future” but says “I just don’t want to date RIGHT NOW” and thinks that we can just be friends like nothing has happened. He can pretend everything’s fine and still flirt with me and everything when we hang out and say that he doesn’t want to date.
He told me that he’s not holding on, so I shouldn’t either.
I’m so heartbroken right now. I called him tonight and cried while discussing this. He doesn’t care anymore, I know he doesn’t.
Was I just used in the relationship? I don’t think it’s best being friends anymore with him. I just can’t do it anymore. Please give me advice on not talking to him.
TLDR; am I being used as a friend right now and was I being used in a relationship? How to stop wanting to talk to him and fully be done with him?

2023.06.03 07:14 okyte Looking for suggestions to remove plaster from ceramic tiles

Looking for suggestions to remove plaster from ceramic tiles
So, we just bought our first home. The previous owner used plaster to level the ceramic tiles when they decided to put linoleum on top of it, which was damaged. It turns out that the tiles could do the job for a couple of years, until we do major work in the kitchen. We spent two hours scrubbing and scraping using vinegar to remove the plaster on a few tiles. I am looking for suggestions to speed up the process/ making it easier. Thanks in advance !

2023.06.03 07:14 JonathanPerdarder About to add a substantial sum to my portfolio. Questions…

Large sum going into the market with another going in next year. I’m 52. Own two modest homes outright, all my vehicles (contracting business) and equipment. 0 debt. Emergency fund in place. Good credit. Wife has a solid job and income, too.
Planning on stepping away from my business in 18-24 months.
Really thinking Jepi and Jepq are going to be a big part of that after I step away. But for right now, is it better to put this larger allocation into more SCHD (already have a good amount), or VOO or VTI? Others? And then when it’s time sell off a bunch of that for Jepi or other similar dividend things?
Were I to put it all or most in Jepi at retirement or semi-retirement time, the dividend amount would be substantially over my daily needs, so I could be re-investing as it came in or is it probably better to tinker with the dividend amount for my needs and keep the rest more growth focused? Any thoughts on the best strategy appreciated! Thanks

2023.06.03 07:14 Fit_Bar_2682 My parents want to know where and whom I’m going out with

I just want to know if it’s normal that me in my twenties is getting questioned by my parents when I’m going out. They want to know about who I’m going out with(their gender, relationship with me etc), where I’m going, time I’m coming back. They get mad when I don’t let them know I’m going out even tho I have told them via mouth before hand and insist I send a message in a “home sweet home” WhatsApp group.
I get pretty uncomfortable about being questioned all the time even tho I have nothing to hide, however I find it difficult to speak up about it since parents will just pull out the “you are my child” card or just simply overpowering me with their identity of a parent.

2023.06.03 07:13 moonlitnightingale17 [PC] [Late ‘90s/early ‘00s] you play as a purple female or green male alien blob thing

Platform: -PC.
Genre: -1st person, in the sense that you never play as a character. You just click around and the characters on screen react to your decisions. -3D world, the camera angles would change depending on what you were doing -Puzzler, maybe? It had no main storyline, just a lot of mini games. -You’d click something and the characters would move or make faces and sounds (like the opening sequence of mario kart where you’re choosing your character, except it was like that all the time). -1 player, no multiplayer options
Estimated year of release: -Late ‘90s to 2004, roughly.
Graphics/art style: -Bright colors, very cute -I don’t remember it looking like a typical ‘90s game. The art was clean, simple, cartoony, something that would appeal to 10 y/o girls. -Always sunny, like weather didn’t exist
Notable characters: -The main characters were two blob-like alien creatures. They were triangle-shaped, like a kid dressed up as a ghost with a sheet over its head. The male was bright green and had some kind of baseball hat, I think? And the female was bright purple and had lipstick and eyelashes.
Notable gameplay mechanics: -The “home” screen was a city map, birds-eye view, like in pokemon or zelda. The alien blob things would be at the side of the screen, hovering in a hot air balloon while you decided what you wanted to do. -You could hover on different areas of the map and see what kind of mini-games there were. -There was no storyline or way to win. It was like the mini-games in pokemon stadium. Pointless and fun.
Other: -I’m not a gamer and I didn’t understand storyline games when I was younger, so this was a stereotypical “girl game”, I’d guess.

2023.06.03 07:13 tabasco_devilman Explanations and Exits

My understanding of the tantrum you were throwing when I exited your life without saying anything was that my friend had paid you to do it so that my life would be sabotaged. I had some clue that you had been working with him since slightly after we met. I imagine he saw me talking to you on my FB messenger and went to you directly. He offered you compensation to watch me and keep me distracted while he sabotaged things in the background. We had only been speaking for a few months after you completely flipped on me. I thought that was way too soon for someone to develop an attachment like that with me. Especially someone who constantly claims to not have any feelings and be the epitome of detachment. I assumed there was a motive or I really am that mommy, that you felt the need to cry for me that way. Please don't be offended at the verbiage that I used just now, but I had a dream I was holding you like one and ever since then I can't unsee it.
You will forever be baby to me. And you love to be taken care of like one too, that was why I found so much satisfaction in our interactions. I love nurturing things and people because it makes me feel like I'm evolving when I do. Nothing I did for you ever felt in vain or wasted in spite of the suspicions I had because I knew that in spite of the circumstances, we had made a genuine connection. We did learn from and inspire one another to grow. We had great times. It's a pity that my friend tries to ruin all of my relationships out of jealousy. Who knows what we could have been without his interferences? I guess we will never know!
At this point so much damage has been done, that connecting in a way that feels natural takes more effort than either one of us has to give. But the fact that we can have love and friendship in our hearts for one another in spite of the traumatic experiences we endured and our differences, is a testimony to the strength of our individual love and the love in our hearts for the other. We have always been so powerful in that way. I know that my voice sounds stern and scary when you hear me and I'm sorry for that. I am putting up barriers because I need them right now. I do not mean you any harm, but I need time to think.
It's interesting hearing you tell me how you saw things. I honestly have no idea if I really mean that much to people or if they just need something. I have no idea how to react when people who tell me they hope I die and that I'm a walking disaster show up and act like they can't live without me. The invasions to my privacy. Remember when you left those books by the park where I work? Remember when you sent me messages about what was inside my room when we hadn't talked in months and I never gave you the address to my house? How was I supposed to react? What was I supposed to think? I did the best I could with what I had and yet at the end of the day, I was the one who abandoned you because I didn't let you come back immediately after you abandoned me first. You ditched me as soon as your ex wanted you back and then when you fought with her you wanted me back. I'm not going to be your back up for whenever you and your wife are fighting. That's not friendship. This is why it's not a good idea to bring up the past to me. I just want you to really think and reflect about all the things that I know and think twice before you try to guilt trip me for not being around enough when I couldn't even get far enough away from you people.

2023.06.03 07:13 loycesoul Need advice, first time bill payer.

Hi all,
I'm about to have to pay the bills for my home (I live by myself but the house is owned by my mother) for the first time and I'm really scared and anxious about managing it. I'm very mentally ill and unemployed, though I've been trying to find work for a long time, I have no experience or anything and tend to get ignored when I apply.
I know there are low income help schemes and such that should be able to help me manage but trying to find them all is extremely overwhelming. I live in the UK and am in my 20s. I only have about £500 to my name right now (my only income right now is PIP) and I'm really scared it'll all be gone really quickly.
Thanks for any help or advice anyone can give! ;_;

2023.06.03 07:13 ThrowRA_Violets My (30F) close friend (30F) is easily triggered by me and “feels unsafe” with me. What do I do?

Laura and I have known each other for many years and have had lots of ups and downs, mostly centered around me finally learning to set boundaries a few years into the friendship and her reacting poorly to that. A lot of that conflict stems from past trauma she has around friendships, relationships, love, and abandonment. We’ve talked that stuff to death, both apologized for how we made each other feel during those times, but it keeps coming up.
Over the years she has been extremely hurt by things I have said, done, or not done. Here are some examples:
-I bought a house a few years ago, and for various reasons, it was a tough time for me. Laura knew this and was supportive in our many phone calls leaving up to my move. After I moved in, Laura texted and asked to video chat to see the house. I told her I was going to bed but would show her the house soon. I was really depressed, didn’t feel up to talking to anyone, but finally texted her about two weeks later to check in. She ignored me for a couple of weeks, and when I kept checking in, she finally told me she was ignoring me intentionally because she was very upset that I “forgot” about her as soon as I moved in, and I must have been busy with my other friends. Once we clarified the situation, she apologized, but I just couldn’t fathom that she made up this story in her head, and it actually kept her from engaging with me when I really needed a friend.
-I didn’t invite her to my grad school graduation because I had limited tickets and it was supposed to be the first time my parents met my (now) in laws. I told her specifically I was keeping it small and not having a party. She got the details from my then-boyfriend, now-husband, by claiming she wanted to surprise me, then she flew across the country and showed up at my graduation. Tbh I wasn’t thrilled but tried to be/act grateful she cared enough to surprise me. Then my dad invited her to dinner afterwards to be polite, but I talked to her and said I wanted it to be just a family thing. (There were a couple other of my local friends who came who also weren’t invited to dinner.) She later told me she was upset that I didn’t invite her to dinner because she thought we were like family.
-When I got married, I chose not to have a bridal party. Laura was upset about this because it was potentially her only chance to be a bridesmaid or MOH. But we moved on from that. However, various things that happened during my wedding and planning made her so upset that she held a grudge for an entire year of ALL the little things I said or did that I can’t even remember. For example, apparently she called me once and we only talked about my wedding and then I hung up on her when she started to talk about herself. I don’t remember this — if it happened I’m sure it was an accident — and of course I would be annoyed if it happened to me. But I would just like… call the person back?! Certainly not hold a grudge about it for a year?
I care about her a lot and don’t think she has poor intentions. I think she just has a lot of trauma and insecurities that sometimes get projected onto other people. But at the same time, it doesn’t feel healthy. She once told me herself that she doesn’t feel safe around me, and that she is sometimes afraid to reach out to me, which is awful to hear. I know I’ve made mistakes but I consider myself a generally kind and thoughtful person, and a good friend. So I’m confused by this situation and just wanting an outside perspective on what the heck could be going on here to sour this friendship, and how I can keep things healthy/positive without triggering her all the time.

2023.06.03 07:13 False-Positive847 I don’t know what I want

I (m19) have been with my gf (f18) for a little over 2 years now & I’m not entirely sure what I want. We met in high school and we are both in college now (at the same local community college). She is amazing and I love her very much, our interests and views are nearly identical and she has been an immense positive force in my life. The thing is that I am constantly feeling a sort of apathy towards our relationship. It’s not that i don’t care about it, because i do very much. It’s just that i don’t mind not seeing her for weeks on end, I forget to respond to messages for days, I’m really unconcerned about if we’re going to be together forever (as she seems to think and constantly reiterates), and at the end of the day I wouldn’t feel to bad if we broke up. Of course i’m saying this from a position where I’m in a happy relationship (mine and her first by the way) and if we do end up breaking up who knows how i’ll feel when the time comes. Of course I would feel horrible, but part of me feels like it will be more of a relief, even though the relationship is no burden whatsoever. Honestly, I would describe it as perfect, we have had an argument maybe twice in the two years we’ve been together, and that’s why I am so confused and a little distressed as to why I feel the way I do. I’ve always been very independent and I’ve always wanted to travel around and meet new people which I don’t think i want to do in a relationship. I’m not saying i wanna just go and sleep around with people or do the whole hookup culture thing because I really have no interest in that whatsoever. I just kinda want to be on my own. She had some serious mental health and self-worth problems when we met and since then she has come leaps and bounds. She’s confident and happy and her life is better in general; the problem is that she says that it was me who helped her realize that. I believe her about that and she’s helped me to grow as a person as well. Again, this is why I’m just so lost as to how I feel. I know a breakup would destroy her and I feel guilty for thinking about it and even guiltier for feeling so indifferent to the whole thing. I do love her and i think that I will always love her no matter what because she has been an extraordinarily important part of my life, but when is the time to move on? I’m also afraid i’ll never find that kind of love again. Like I said she is my first gf and it’s been great. I see people getting together and breaking up all the time in messy and explosive ways. Maybe it’s because our relationship has been great and that so many others seem not to be, that i feel like I would be loosing that forever. Who knows, maybe we’ll break up and i’ll realize it was a mistake, then again maybe not. Reading over this I realize i am a big mass of conflicting emotions and now i’m gonna post it on reddit (what a loser hahaha). Anyways I’m not looking for answers here because I know I’m the only one who can figure out what needs to happen. I just needed to write it out and maybe hear what some people have to say.
TL;DR I don’t know if I should end things in a good relationship because I want to be on my own.

2023.06.03 07:12 calidarehab Get Rid Of What Is Denial? 3 Types Of Denial In Addiction Problems Once And For All

The first step toward healing is accepting that you are wounded, or your habit is unhealthy. However, most people deny the impact of unhealthy habits or addiction on their life. If you are denying your addiction, it can prevent you from getting help. Hence, you should learn how to recognize denial in addiction and get help or help someone who needs it.
What is denial in addiction?
Denial is the behavior of a person who ignores, downplays, or distorts reality. A person uses denial to protect themselves from dealing with or accepting the truth happening in their life. Sometimes denial can be helpful for a short time when dealing with a traumatic situation. However, staying in denial for a long time is harmful. To overcome your addiction denial, contact a Calida Rehab professional. They will educate you about the ill effect of staying in denial of your addiction.
Why do people deny addiction?
Usually, a person may deny their addiction due to the following reasons, including:
1.Shame and guilt associated with the addiction 2.Fear of stigma and judgment from others 3.Fear of facing challenges and discomfort of recovery 4.Lack of awareness or understanding of the extent of the problem
If you deny your addiction for the above reason, visit the Addiction Rehab Center In Pune, which provides professional treatment for individuals struggling with addiction.
Types of Denial in Addiction
The expert at Calida Rehab can help you with different types of denial. Here are the top three types of denial found in person with addiction, include:
Normalization In this denial, people normalize their unhealthy habits by comparing themselves to others who drink or use drugs. The addict believes that their level of consumption is normal.
Minimization Another way an addict denies their addiction is by making the addiction and its consequences seem minimal.
Scapegoating Addicts also deny by blaming other people and situations for their addiction. Most people tell themselves that their drinking is due to losing business or fights with family.
How to overcome denial in addiction?
You can overcome from denial of your addiction by following these methods, including:
1.Learn about the nature of addiction and its impact on life. 2.Opening to a trusted friend or loved one. 3.Participating in a support group. 4.Identifying irrational beliefs about your situation.
The best way to overcome denial in addiction is by visiting the Rehabilitation Center for Drug and Alcohol Addiction In Karjat. Rehab offers all the help and care required for overcoming addiction.
Denial of addiction is a big concern as it stops the person from getting support and proper treatment. Moreover, denial signs may differ from individual to individual. If you know someone is using drugs or alcohol and is in denial that it doesn’t impact their health, you should tell them to meet a professional. Hearing about the ill effects of addiction from a trusted outsider can help them overcome their denial.

2023.06.03 07:12 bolavv Filtering J2 jobs to become OE

Hi folks! Been lurking since last year but started trying to get a J2 more seriously since january.
During my career I focused on building a good resume. I have 10-15 YOE as sre, a bunch of certs, and a doctorate/phd swe related.
J1 total comp is about 100-110k, hybrid 2 days per week I can choose. Piece of cake most times, low stress, can't leave it. Also relocation is not an option.
For context, I receive 2-5 responses a month despite applying to 20-50 jobs. HR people do like me, I do well interviews and hands-on projects, but most of times they either make a low offer like one 22k, another $30 hourly, or make up some bs excuse after a month of interviews.
My first goal with OE is to buy a new home. My region is not known for good salaries but I live in a very expensive part of it in a small condo. This poses a challenge when trying to negotiate since they always try to lowball based on the region. Job pool is very limited for me since I need a 'work from anywhere' and I am not US or EU based.
I am looking for a J2 that pays more than J1 considering the hassle of the initial OE adaptation, am I wrong to be too picky?
What additional or different actions would you take in my place?

2023.06.03 07:12 UseApprehensive1102 New Card Reviews: Red Deer!

New Card Reviews: Red Deer!
Today we are back to reviewing a Basic card! Here we have the Red Deer!
Energy: 4
Power: 85
Rarity: Epic (Basic)
Special Ability: In The Headlights (If played opposite any card, this card loses -40 Power this turn.)
This card has a notable gimmick. It harbors heavy hitting power, but requires you to place this card in a spot without a card opposite this. Typically, this means using cards that prevent the opponent from playing their cards as much as possible like Loch Ness Monster, Assassin Bug, Eye Of The Storm and The Brain. Alternatively, another option is to buff this card with things like Gryphon, Hippocampus and Dr. Moreau. Even with this debuff, 45 Power for 4 Energy is still quite powerful, and this card isnquite easy to buff.
Unfortunately, trying to get a spot where this is not opposite a card is diffuclt to do, especially against low-cost cards like A Christmas Carol, Pomermanian and Amazon Sloth. Additionally, debuffs are also deadly against this card, like Power of 0, Irish Stew and Beefalo. All of these can diminish its high-Power potential, as well as burning from cards like Raphael, Fire and Thermodynamics, since this card relies on its high Base Power. And those debuff cards that prevent the opponent from playing are also just as deadly against you as against them, so watch out for debuffers in general.
Overall, this is quite a powerful card but requires a high skill ceiling to play. This is not a card you can just throw out and expect to win easily. In fact, this ability means you have to play carefully. Thus, it ranks B- in terms of viability.

2023.06.03 07:12 JocastaHunter 24 [M4F] Irving, Looking for an older partner to take me under their wing!

I'm a free-spirited guy that is looking for an older, but likeminded female to hang out with, become fwb, or maybe even start a relationship. We can decide that as we go I guess?
A lot of people have described me as adventurous and open minded person, but I must admit that I am not outwardly social. I guess that would make me ambiverted?
To list a few things enjoy, traveling to new places, exploring different cultures, unique physical activities, activities in nature, etc. I also love sci-fi, videogames, self-care, find new mediums of art to express myself, etc.
I personally don't mind being a side piece for an attached partner also. I am not possessive unless we declare ourselves as serious/monogamous.

2023.06.03 07:12 w0nd3rk I just received the PERFECT order - is there anything I can do besides leave a good review to give back to the seller?

My father-in-law is extremely hard to buy for, and this year his birthday falls on father's day, so, double whammy. I had an inspired idea, and found a seller who executed it beyond my wildest dreams and well within my price range.
I plan to buy from this seller as much as possible going forward and, of course, leave a rave review. But is there any other way I can say thanks? He already has my money, obviously, but I cannot over emphasize the care that went into the production of my order. I am in awe. I am in love. Is there anything else I can do to give back?
(I plan on posting the purchase to my social media after father's day for word of mouth but outside of that I'm stumped -- I really cannot over-emphasize the quality of the my purchase)

· DevOps training

DevOps training is becoming increasingly popular among IT professionals, as it provides a comprehensive understanding of DevOps practices and principles. With the right training program, you can learn how to effectively implement and manage DevOps workflows, automate processes, and integrate different tools for seamless collaboration between development and operations teams.
A good DevOps training program should cover areas such as agile methodologies, continuous integration and delivery, infrastructure as code, monitoring and logging, security, compliance, and more. Whether you're a beginner looking to get started with DevOps or an experienced professional seeking to enhance your skills, investing in DevOps training

· DevOps tools

DevOps tools are essential for implementing and managing DevOps practices effectively. There are several tools available in the market that can help you automate processes, monitor systems, ensure security and compliance, and collaborate seamlessly with your team members.
Some popular DevOps tools include Jenkins for continuous integration and delivery, Ansible for infrastructure as code automation, Nagios for monitoring and alerting, Docker for containerization, Git for version control, and more.
When choosing DevOps tools, it's important to consider factors such as ease of use, scalability, compatibility with your existing systems, pricing, and community support.
By selecting the right DevOps tools and integrating them into your workflow, you can streamline your processes, increase efficiency, and improve collaboration between development and operations teams.
However, it's important to note that tools alone are not enough - a successful DevOps implementation also requires a cultural shift towards collaboration, continuous improvement, and innovation.

· DevOps practices

DevOps practices are a set of principles and methods aimed at improving collaboration between development and operations teams, streamlining processes, and achieving faster and more reliable software delivery.
Some common DevOps practices include continuous integration and delivery, infrastructure as code, automated testing, monitoring and logging, security and compliance, and more.
By implementing these practices, organizations can reduce time to market, improve product quality, and enhance customer satisfaction.
However, the successful adoption of DevOps practices requires cultural changes and a willingness to embrace new ways of working. With the right mindset and approach, any organization can benefit from DevOps practices.

· Continuous integration and deployment

Continuous integration and deployment is a key DevOps practice that involves automating the building, testing, and deployment of software changes.
By continuously integrating code changes into a shared repository and automatically deploying them to production environments, organizations can deliver high-quality software at a faster pace while reducing errors and downtime.
Continuous integration and deployment tools such as Jenkins, Travis CI, and CircleCI enable developers to test their code in a consistent environment and receive immediate feedback on any issues.
However, successful implementation of continuous integration and deployment requires close collaboration between development and operations teams, as well as robust testing and monitoring processes.

· Agile Scrum Master

Agile Scrum Master is a methodology used in software development that emphasizes collaboration, flexibility, and customer satisfaction. This approach involves breaking down complex projects into smaller, manageable tasks and working on them in short sprints. The Agile Scrum Master acts as a facilitator between the development team and stakeholders, ensuring that everyone is aligned on project goals and priorities. By embracing the Agile Scrum Master approach, organizations can increase their efficiency, reduce waste, and deliver high-quality software products that meet customer needs. However, the successful adoption of Agile Scrum Master requires a willingness to embrace change and a commitment to continuous improvement, as well as a focus on communication and collaboration across teams. The Scrum Master plays a crucial role in maintaining this focus by facilitating daily stand-up meetings, sprint planning sessions, and retrospective meetings to ensure that the team stays on track and continuously improves its processes. Embracing an Agile Scrum Master methodology can help organizations stay competitive in an ever-changing market by delivering products that meet customer needs quickly and efficiently.

· Infrastructure as code

Infrastructure as code is a practice that involves managing and provisioning infrastructure using code files, rather than manual processes. By defining infrastructure configurations in code, organizations can automate the deployment of their infrastructure, improve consistency and reliability, and reduce the risk of errors caused by human intervention. Infrastructure as code tools such as Terraform, Ansible, and Chef allow engineers to define their infrastructure in a declarative manner and manage it like they would manage software code. However, successful implementation of infrastructure as code requires careful planning, testing, and version control practices to ensure that changes are tracked and managed effectively. By embracing infrastructure as code, organizations can increase their operational efficiency and agility, allowing them to respond quickly to changing business needs. This approach also enables teams to work in a more collaborative manner, reducing silos between infrastructure and development teams and improving overall productivity. While it may require some initial investment in training and tooling, the benefits of implementing infrastructure as code are significant for modern organizations seeking to scale their operations.

· Containerization

Containerization is a technology that allows developers to package applications and their dependencies into lightweight, portable containers that can run consistently across different environments. Containers provide a way to isolate applications from the underlying infrastructure, making it easier to deploy, scale, and manage them in a consistent manner. By using containerization platforms such as Docker and Kubernetes, organizations can achieve greater flexibility and agility in their software development process, enabling them to respond to changing business requirements more quickly. However, containerization also requires careful consideration of security, networking, and storage requirements to ensure that applications are deployed in a secure and scalable manner. By combining infrastructure as code with containerization, organizations can create a powerful approach to managing their IT infrastructure. By defining infrastructure configurations in code files and packaging applications into containers, engineers can achieve a high degree of consistency, reliability, and flexibility in their IT operations. This allows organizations to respond quickly to changing business needs while ensuring that the underlying infrastructure remains secure and scalable at all times. However, it is important for organizations to establish clear guidelines and best practices around version control, testing, and deployment processes to ensure that changes are managed effectively across the entire IT stack. With careful planning and execution, the combination

· DevOps Engineer

As a DevOps engineer, your role is crucial in ensuring the successful implementation of containerization and infrastructure as code within organizations. You are responsible for designing and managing the underlying infrastructure components that support these technologies. This includes configuring networking and storage systems to provide secure and scalable access to containerized applications, as well as developing tools and automation scripts to streamline the deployment process. Additionally, you work closely with development teams to ensure that applications are designed with containerization in mind, optimizing them for performance and security within a containerized environment. With your expertise in both software development and IT infrastructure, you play a critical role in bridging the gap between development and operations teams, enabling organizations to achieve faster time-to-market and increased agility. To excel in your role, you must possess strong communication and collaboration skills, as well as a deep understanding of containerization technologies such as Docker and Kubernetes, along with infrastructure automation tools such as Ansible, Chef or Puppet. With these skills in hand, you can help organizations fully realize the benefits of DevOps and containerization by enabling seamless software delivery with high availability, scalability, and security.
In conclusion, a DevOps engineer’s job is to ensure that the entire IT stack is effectively implemented and managed so as to support a company's digital transformation goals. They must possess strong communication and collaboration skills, as well as awareness of relevant infrastructure automation technologies such as Ansible, Chef, or Puppet in order to successfully achieve these objectives.

2023.06.03 07:12 cruisecontrol34 Prebiotics for immune health

So I experience some pretty frightening neuroinflammation (think encephalitis) symptoms that I am certain take place because of a compromised immune system. I am going to seek specialty treatment, but since most of our immune system is in the gut, my hunch is telling me that correcting my dysbiosis will be the answer to feeling better. And I have a hard time believing a doctor will listen to me.
I just completed an eight week round of SBI Protect a few days ago and it did wonders almost immediately. I was emptying out in the toilet every morning for the first time in a few years, and the poops smelt like ammonia so it was surely binding and clearing things out. UTI symptoms resolved, acne cleared up, I became increasingly clear-headed on it, and I was free of sinus infections - which is a treat for me. My functional doctor instructed me to add a spore probiotic a few weeks into the treatment, and I really regret agreeing with that. I didn't realize how controversial those are. Ever since trying it the cognitive benefit disappeared and the solid regularity decreased. At least I only took one sprinkle of it.
A few days ago, after finishing the IgG, I started taking PHGG and it has done a decent job of continuing the constipation relief. Hopefully it will improve further as I continue on it. I did notice a cognitive benefit the first two days, but that seems to have faded. It has also decreased the white coating on my tongue. I'm not sure if I have candida, but I do believe I at least have fungal and yeast overgrowth (forgive me if that is some sort of fallacy), especially considering the lyme disease and mold toxicity. I only go once in the morning, so it's not optimal, but I can get something to help with motility. I'm thinking L-carnitine since stimulants have always cleared me out.
The reason I chose to take PHGG is because I am trying to stay low FODMAP. Most fruits and certain fibers like beans constipate me, so I have to be careful with what I eat at this point. Another reason I chose PHGG is because a stool test from a few months ago showed low bifidobacterium. The stool test also indicated intestinal permiability (have been drinking chicken broth and aloe vera every day for about three months ), low SCFA's, low akkermansia, low faecalibacterium, as well as some bacterial overgrowth (not sure if SIBO). The diagnosis is vague because the practitioner who ordered it hasn't been as helpful as I would like. I believe I have immunity issues because of this complication, especially the low butyrate.
Now, about two weeks into the IgG treatment, I had taken inulin a few times before trying the spore probiotic. The reason I was suggested to take inulin was because it covered all of the bases that my stool test revealed - it raises bifido, akkermansia, faec, and SCFA's. And the night I took inulin I got the deepest sleep I have had in a long time. The next day it felt like tumors had been removed from my brain. Given the anti-tumor properties of butyrate, that may have been the case, as well as the detoxification of ammonia from the central nervous system. I was able to hold eye contact with people and follow the conversational dialogue linearly with a clarity that I didn't even realize had been missing.
Unfortunately as that day progressed I began to herx severely from the inulin. The anxiety was so bad that any benefit was negated by the stress it brought. So either there was a die-off that was too much for my body to handle or it fed something pathogenic. It wasn't just psychological either, it seemed to worsen my allergies and make me wheeze (have asthma). It also bloated me, but it did create the first long snake, no-wipe poop I have had in years. From what I understand, I probably got a huge cognitive benefit from the inulin and not the PHGG because the inulin is fermented in the colon, right?
What I am trying to figure out is how I can get that cognitive benefit without the chance of feeding pathogens and creating another herx. I tried taking a butyrate supplement months back, before anything else, and it also made me freak out as well as bringing on too many weird side effects. Is there something out there that could bridge this gap?
