2023.06.07 00:06 fntastk My very first Goodwill bins experience went just as I had thought! Follow up

I am lucky to live 15 minutes away from an outlet location. I've always known it was there but have only visited once when I was looking for an ugly sweater for a party about 10 years ago. My location is dubbed a "competitive" spot, which I did not know until this past weekend. I made this post asking about the bins in general.
So my brother and I arrived shortly after opening and we were both shell shocked upon entering lol. It was very full. People were concentrated in one corner going crazy so I assumed they just rolled those bins out. We started on the other side where people weren't looking and just kind of awkwardly went in for it. About five minutes in my brother was like, "they're coming" 😳 and we saw the workers bringing new bins to the middle of the outlet. A few seconds later people ran and FLOCKED. We watched this happen again, literally just taking it in. Was truly crazy.
The third rotation, WE WENT FOR IT! It was much more civil than I had expected. Nobody pushed, it seemed like many regulars were chatting while digging (mostly guys in their 30's and 40's, but one guy my age who resells vintage shirts. I am friends with him on FB) and everyone kind of just moved down the line quickly. Which sucked because I wasn't able to dig that much before moving down. A lot of times I felt like I was in the way because of the huge ass cart I grabbed but nobody was mean or confrontational about it. One man accidentally hit my cart and he apologized and was nice about it. The cart overall was just awkward though, I ended up parking it somewhere against the wall and not getting it until we were finished. Next time I go, I might bring a reusable tote or pick one up from the bins (I saw many) so I can just hold it on my shoulder or something? Idk
Overall, it went much better than I had thought. Found lots of underwear and dirty socks, which I was warned about, many on the floor too... doesn't really bother me though but I didn't realize how many I'd find lol. The workers were all very friendly and they cleaned that stuff up entirely between the rotations. Instead of getting yelled at like I read online, a worker politely asked us to move because they were changing the bins. They were also chatting with the regulars as they moved stuff in. The music was good, too, and I got in the zone after about 45 minutes.
Unfortunately, my brother didn't have breakfast and I was also getting hungry so we left after about 2 hours. I TOTALLY could have stayed longer, this would have been a good time for a lunch break. I noticed they stopped the rotations for a while at this point and we didn't know if that was it for the day or what was going on. I'll have to visit in the afternoon just to see what that is like.
The haul? Well, there wasn't one... lol. Here is what I found and put back, in order: * Aerie white cropped sweater - SO much pilling but adorable * Aerie offline cropped tank top - XS, in hindsight should have grabbed it for what I was paying but this was only the second thing I found so I was kind of nervous lol plus they were beginning to roll these bins away and we just kind of had to dip * Levi's straight jeans - jeans literally do not sell at all for me so I put them back. Also these were maybe kids? Size said 12 which is my size and these were definitely not my size. * Random vintage old lady birdhouse sweater - loved it but I am not sure how these vintage sweaters would do as I have a few listed now that don't have any attention * Anthropologie sweater - Looked like an older style or possibly shrunken * Zara trafaluc crop blouse - Also looked like an older style and Zara doesn't seem to sell well for me either unless it's something super in demand * Kut from the kloth skinny jeans - Debated, but yeah... jeans do terrible for me. Wish I picked them up though just to try this brand * Random NWT mom jeans - I was interested bc never heard of the brand before, but tag said $30 so I put them back. They were my size but mom jeans tend to run small on me so ultimately just put them back.
What we did get were some 2000's-ish silly shirts to repurpose (my brother's thing, not mine lol) or use for the gym, an old navy dress (Regular GW was asking $10.99... LOL), a pullover for myself, and a thermal for my mom. Total was a few cents over $6!
I am ready to go back ASAP! Tomorrow I have plans but I am hoping to be back Thursday and give it a shot by myself.
Edit: Also, the bins themselves were not as dirty as I expected. My hands were not as grimy as I was preparing for! Still wiped them down really well afterwards. I packed up all the stuff needed to use the laundromat in case it was extra gross, but I just used my own washer at home. Yeah, the items smelled musty and my pullover kinda smelled like puke but it all came out after washing.

2023.06.06 23:47 Purple_Arrival4036 Making a custom titlebar

Hey, like I said in the title I want to make a custom titlebar while keeping resizing, shadow and borders. I want to basically completely disable or hide the current titlebar but I cant find a way to do so. I tried using DWM but I cant get it to work correclty.
Im using glfw between and I get access to the HWDN using the glfw native access.
Right now im using this code which does disable the titlebar, but there is a white border at the top that I want to remove.
HWND hWnd = glfwGetWin32Window(window); // Remove the title bar LONG_PTR lStyle = GetWindowLongPtr(hWnd, GWL_STYLE); lStyle &= ~WS_CAPTION; SetWindowLongPtr(hWnd, GWL_STYLE, lStyle); // Set the window shape and rounded corners DWMNCRENDERINGPOLICY policy = DWMNCRP_ENABLED; DwmSetWindowAttribute(hWnd, DWMWA_NCRENDERING_POLICY, &policy, sizeof(policy)); // Extend the frame into the client area MARGINS margins = { -1 }; DwmExtendFrameIntoClientArea(hWnd, &margins); // Adjust the window size to remove the thin frame at the top RECT windowRect; GetWindowRect(hWnd, &windowRect); SetWindowPos(hWnd, NULL, 0, 0, windowRect.right - windowRect.left, windowRect.bottom - windowRect.top, SWP_FRAMECHANGED SWP_NOMOVE); 
Any help would be appreciated, ive been stuck with this issue for a couple days now/

2023.06.06 23:42 BringMeThanos314 Save The Beatles Challenge

Save The Beatles Challenge
Came up with a little game that I thought people might find fun/interesting.. Hopefully nobody has thought of this already!
This is kind of like one of those "build a superband for $25", only I've assigned different costs for each of The Beatles' studio albums. The scenario is that anything you don't save is going to be wiped from the earth, can't be recreated from memory, etc. All that will remain from The Beatles' discography are the songs/albums you choose to purchase.
EDIT: Sorry for the unhelpful explanation— I thought it was a familiar concept from when these games were popular a few years back. You have a budget of $25 (then less in the later rounds) and can only save the albums you can afford. For example, Revolver, Rubber Soul, Sgt pepper, Abbey rd, White, and the single track Yesterday gets you to $25.
There is some definite strategy in terms of maximizing the total number of songs by leaning towards albums, versus leaning too heavily on picking individual songs at a dollar a pop.
Here are the costs:
$5: Abbey Road, Revolver, Rubber Soul, Sgt. Pepper
$4: White Album, A Hard Day's Night, Let It Be, Magical Mystery Tour
$3: Help!, Yellow Submarine, Please Please Me
$2: Meet The Beatles, With The Beatles
$1: Any one song (any two songs released together on a double side can be saved for $1.50)
If so inclined, share your answers for Rounds One ($25), Two ($18), and Three ($10).
Good luck!

2023.06.06 21:48 cloud_mom The NOT Not notfredrhodes Love Island Recap S10EP1 - the ick heard round the world

Bonjour ! We have been waiting 2 years for the Legend Fred to return, and seeing as his resurrection seems to be permanently delayed, I have made the difficult decision to continue the legacy of Point Systems, Rankings, and Generally Scathing Commentary. Inspired by Fred's wit, charm, and heroic recaps, please remember that points are arbitrary but also 100% backed by facts and science.
ANYHOW - we start off with the usual blah blah opening sequence that only served to prove to us that the Love Island producers are trolls who reverse-catfish us with promo pictures. Seriously, its been a decade, please free us from the pain and nonsense !! (-50 points to the stinky producers)
We are then introduced to our first two islanders with a back shot of their bum bums. Jump scare ! Jess immediately asks Ruchee about her type, and Ruchee panders to the ugly men of the world by leading with personality (+5 points for being polite -5 points for lying). Blah blah blah height, blah fashion, Jess is a real one for her anti white skinny jeans platform (+15 points for proactively setting boundaries).
Ruchee has been single for four months which leads me to believe she was in a relationship while applying for LI which is a Textbook MAN MOVE so +15 points to Ruchee for breaking the glass ceiling. Her feet are very small and her shoes are very large (+4 points for fashion risks) .
Following this, a MAN shows up ?!? The girls haven't had a minute alone before being whacked in the face by a medium-tall man with veneers and red bottoms. Mitchell (Red Bottoms) is just as confused as the girlies & we (the viewers) seem to be, but OK good lad for running with the punches and taking it on the chin (+1 point for going with the flow). Jess & Ruchee are both from the SOE (south of England) and Red Bottoms sees this as an opportunity to let them both know he is NOT interested. Or maybe he's just negging them. Red Bottoms asks the girls if he has to pour the drink himself, and Jess reminds him that he is a man and should behave accordingly ( RB -10 points for thinking he's hot enough to be poured for, Jess +10 points for MILF behavior). Red Bottoms asks the girls to guess his job, and is offended that Jess & Ruchee assume he's a plumber. +30 points to Jess for knowing what a Gas Safety License is. In his VT Red Bottoms mentioned that he is a "nice guy" ???? Nice try buddy, you're not fooling anyone (-200 points for Fraudulent Behavior). Also he lives with his parents.
In walks another MAN, Andre, who, unlike Red Bottoms, IS hot enough for the girls to pour him a drink so +5 points for being hot and +5 points for being so hot that Ruchee spills the champagne while pouring. He is also 21 and owns a business which feels illegal but isn't. Andre does a double cheek kiss to let the ladies know that he respects women AND is Portuguese (+8 points for being smooth). Andre is a menace, and he outs himself as such by proclaiming that one of his top features in a woman is her "bum bum". ew. (- 9 points for 7th grade terminology, -3 points for making me miss the days of "BUNDA").
BOOM - Lily Rose De- I mean Ella, shows up. She looks like Lily Rose Depp. Blah Blah what's your type blah blah tall blah blah tan blah bla- did she just say DARSKIN??? +30 points for setting the world record for LIUK girls saying tall dark and handsome and MEANING IT. Red Bottoms basically punches Andres as if he didn't hear that himself (-40 points for violence). OK he didn't PUNCH him but that nudge/smack was very cringey. Andres is living his best life (+15 points for being hot). Ella's VT is fun because she forgets how old she is. Also her VT dress has elbow cutouts (iconic).
Blah blah whats your type blah blah personality (liar) blah blah he says Ella Rose Depp is his type (-4 points for calling her Madam). Maya comes in looking BOMB AS HELL (+50 points to her stylist). Maya explains that they're switching it up a bit, and Andres is outed for flirting w/ Ella Rose Depp. He is LOUD and PROUD about it ( +10 points to Andres for having no chill). Jess proclaims that she LOVES Turkey Teef (veneers) (+4 points for radical honesty).
Maya reveals that she's a JOKESTER because none of them are coupling up with each other, the days of gender isolationism are OVER and the new ERA has begun. Unfortunately the public voted again (sigh) and all agency is taken away from the Islanders (-100 points to the stinky producers for removing the harsh reality of the subs bench). Jess is PISSED but tryna be nice because Maya is there. George arrives (barf), proving once again that the stinky producers A. don't do any due diligence before casting nasty ass people or B. literally don't care (google is your friend and this recap is already long enough without going into details). -100000 points for his hateful language and treatment of people, -4 points because his mom calls him a casanova. George (barf) thinks that 40 year olds play bingo.
George (barf) is matched with Jess which is very sad for her. She is PISSED but Polite. Molly comes in and Red Bottom nearly faints bc she is also wearing Red Bottoms (and top and lipstick) which means that the stinky producers are nudging them to be #theoneswholast. Molly also lives at home and has a chicken (+3 points for owning a chicken). Molly (who owns a chicken) smiles so big and immediately sets her eyes on Red Bottoms. CATHERINE all caps enters the villa, she is so beautiful I could CRY (+5 points for being hot). Molly (who owns a chicken) is partnered with Red Bottoms (SHOCKER) and CATHERINE all caps is coupled up with Andres. +10 points to each of them for being hot.
Mehdi comes strolling in with a swing in his hips and a French Accent. He says "bonjour" to let everyone know that he's French. Ella Rose Depp is praying to the gods above that she is NOT matched w this man. Also, Mehdi looks like he EATS Kitty (+14 points for looking like a MUNCH expert). I just know this man LAYS pipe. Tyrique follows Mehdi and is a semi-pro footballer (- 3 points based on my own prejudice against semi-pro players) . This is good news as he has filled the square head athlete quota of the season. (+9 points to the stinky producers for giving the public what we want).
Mehdi is matched with Ruchee. She is PISSED. Tyrique is matched with Ella Rose Depp. Ella Rose Depp claims they've met and Tyrique doesn't remember??? Is he lying or is she overestimating her Impact? Only time will tell (+2 points to Ella Rose Depp for being Bold, -3 points to Tyrique for forgetting a girl he (probably) made out with). Tyrique has terrible posture so -2 points for his short neck hunch. Maya says "expect the unexpected" ! Scary !
The girls and boys make formal introductions and then Gender Isolationism commences with boys sitting on the U couch and girls sitting at the firepit. Girls chat about their couples, Molly (who owns a chicken) is SO HAPPY and Red Bottoms is ALSO happy (+1 point for true love). Mehdi is all smiles, loving that Ruchee is a brunette. Ruchee is PISSED because he's french and also not her type. Andres says bum bum again (-3 points) which is painful and cruel to the general public. Ella Rose Depp reiterates that she's met Tyrique before and accuses Tyrique of lying (-2 points for standing her ground because is it really that serious?). Jess is PISSED because George (barf) gives off bad vibes but says she's interested in Red Bottoms and Tyrique (+10 points for radical honesty). George (barf) makes a joke about being WD40 and that is very off putting. (-283 points do I really have to explain this)
The boys walk over to the girls and Jess is loud but in a good way. Molly (who owns a chicken) notices that her and Tyrique have matching lightning bolt tattoos behind their left ears. Tyrique is outed for his deaf ear and Molly is outed for picking her tattoo from a Pinterest board (+1 point to Molly for radical honesty). Red Bottoms is about to melt into the couch bc his girl has a matching tattoo with a semi pro footballer.
The crew enters the villa for the first time and everyone is blah blah soooo excited. Molly (who owns a chicken) and Red Bottoms lay in bed immediately. She is really pretty and also funny. Molly (who owns a chicken) and Red Bottoms role play that she is showering and he is peeking to take a look. Jess is still PISSED and George (barf) try to have a conversation but it's giving bland. Jess is very clear that she's playing the game (+13 points for radical honesty). CATHERINE all caps is FAWNING over Andres (deserved) and their eye contact is 10/10 they are so horny for romance.
Ella Rose Depp asks Tyrique if he's ever been further than "exclusive" with a girl (no). Tyrique brings up that they've never met and Ella Rose Depp is PISSED. Ella reveals that she did have blonde hair (-3 points because I checked her instagram and she definitely looks different). Tyrique pretends that he knows what she's talking about (he doesn't). Also he tells her she looks better now ????? nice try buddy but that's not exactly a compliment.
Mehdi and Ruchee sit on OPPOSITE ends of a U couch and he is giving her the eyes. He's into fiery girls and she's into men who put her in her place. She mentions that mannerisms (yikes) are v important but that he's growing on her. Molly (who owns a chicken) and Red Bottoms are having a good time and it's LAFS (love at first sight).
The crew gets ready for the night and Jess asks the girls if they find George (barf) attractive. George (barf) loves to brush his teeth (ZERO points for hygiene because that is simply expected). Jess does the toast and the dancing to no music commences (PS is it confirmed that they dance to silence??) Molly (who owns a chicken) and Red Bottoms plan on coordinating outfits and also gaslighting the villa into thinking it's an accident (+3 points to each for scheming). CATHERINE all caps and Tyrique start chatting and he's checking her temperature bc he's ready to SLIP and SLIDE into her heart (at least for the moment). She clocks him as a life ruiner (to be confirmed). Andre joins Red Bottoms, Jess, and Ruchee to announce that he is VERY interested in CATHERINE all caps. Red Bottoms calls Ruchee and Jess pretty but also friend zones them by calling them "family".
Medhi turns on the charm with Ella Rose Depp and once again reminds us that he's ANTI blonde hair. He tells Ella that she's his type but is also realistic saying that him & Ruchee don't have a vibe YET. Ella Rose Depp does NOT tell him that he's her type.
Beer pong (sober) commences, reminding us of the long gone days of binge drinking on TV (RIP). Red Bottoms kisses Molly (who owns a chicken) and Jess and ALSO Ella Rose Depp. Ella is not about it and says he's a bad kisser (yikes). Jess takes any excuse to mug off George (barf) and makes out with Red Bottoms. Molly (who owns a chicken) is PISSED.
George (barf) proceeds to hit us with the ick heard round the world and demonstrates his org*sm (which involves falling over? weird). Molly (who owns a chicken) and Jess have a pushup competition and Molly wins (-5 points to Molly for not taking off her shoes). More of the usual commences, CATHERINE all caps kisses Andres and Tyrique, Tyrique's terrible posture is terribly distracting. Molly (who owns a chicken) bit Red Bottoms ear or wha'eva. -12 points to the stinky producers for messing up the cups and making Andres ride CATHERINE all caps like a horse. Ella Rose Depp has a dance off with Mehdi who takes it like a champ. -10 points to the stinky producers who EXPLICITY write that kisses have to be of the opposite gender. GAY RIGHTS!
SURPRISE!! Maya is in the building, and in a very transparent attempt to kick George (barf) out of the villa immediately, asks the girls who aren't happy in their couples to step forward (Jess and Ruchee immediately move away). These girls are ready to jump ship. Jess thinks George (barf) is ugly and Ruchee thinks Mehdi's mannerisms are a turn off. Is Ruchee mad that Mehdi isn't upset? We shall see.
Zachariah walks in and is a personal trainer, "drama follows me around", NOT shocking babes ! Jess's face lights up like it's christmas morning and she is no longer PISSED. Classic Love Island, he has 24hrs to pair up w a girl (and kick George (barf) out of the house.
Hope you enjoyed xoxo cloud_mom

2023.06.06 21:38 Lanzen_Jars A job for a deathworlder [Chapter 118]

[Chapter 1] ;[Previous Chapter] ; [Discord + Wiki] ; [Patreon]
Chapter 118 – Black and white for once
Announcing that one was wearing something solely for the comfort and safety of others and then immediately taking said thing off was of course sending a quite clear message to everyone in the room. Clearer than maybe even words could’ve conveyed.
The gloves, or the breathfilter in this case, had literally come off.
It was of course a much more subtle way to send it than some others would’ve preferred, however it still had its intended effect. A certain, much saying silence fell momentarily over the room as the deathworlder’s predatory gaze wandered through it, now unrestricted by tinted polymer or pretty lights hiding away its nature.
Many of the present representatives surely had not quite forgotten James’ announcement that, much like myiat, humans too were quite proficient in hunting their fellow order members.
Of course, concerns like that were in reality absolutely ridiculous, and everyone definitely should have known that James was not here to hunt anyone. However, that didn’t mean that some of the more insistent instincts from generations past that still lingered in the backs of some of their minds didn’t poke their ugly heads out into the light now that the cold stare of the apex predator among the primate’s searched for any gaze that dared to challenge it.
Few of them dared to even try. Although they were all, in one way or another, important people that were used to having attention on themselves and opposition pushing against them, they were also, in no uncertain terms, a bunch of spoiled, cloistered, and unworldly brats who had hidden away in their marble halls and ivory towers for so long that they had forgotten what the world could even look like outside of them.
Klanneifer tried his best to return James’ challenging look. However, his discomfort could be clearly read on his face. His already squinting eyes narrowed even further and his eyelids trembled as all four of his ears turned in James’ direction to not let the predator out of their attention.
Uton also averted his gaze, though with him it was clear that he didn’t do so out of any sort of fear, but he instead simply did not wish to invite any more of the things James had to say to him out, seemingly not feeling like he could stand up to hearing most of them.
The one that most comfortably faced James’ searching eyes was Losaranarja. Not surprising really. A pixemerrier who sat at the head of a hotel on a station run by predatory deathworlders had surely seen a lot more frightening things than an ambassador that looked the slightest bit displeased at her.
“However,” James then continued his earlier point about what was and wasn’t one of his many mistakes after a long moment of silence he had allowed himself. “Whether you agree with me or not, it does not change the simple facts of the matter. Outer Orbital strikes are illegal. Period. People on Dunnima, including parts of its leadership and children, got injured during a thwarted attempt of such an illegal attack. End of story. Everything else is rationalization. It does not matter if they were not the main target of the attack. It does not matter who or what else may have been present. We are here to discuss the united reaction of the order of the primates to the attack on Dunnima. And the only reaction that there can be is the clear and unshakable condemnation and denunciation of this attack and any of its kind, be it the same method or any other outlawed means of attack. Whether I like it or not, the primates are seen as a galactic role model. Many people do look towards us for guidance. If we do not send a clear signal that such action cannot and will not be tolerated, then we will be putting the entirety of the Galaxy’s peace and order into jeopardy.”
There was a displeased rumble floating about in the room at his words, and many of the present representatives as well as their accompaniments stood up in an uproar.
“You still speak of Galactic peace and order?” Goloribal now fired back up after having gotten over his first bit of disheartenment at James’ earlier showmanship. “You, of all people? You who has singlehandedly threatened the peace of the people to a degree that has not been seen in centuries? You, who now speaks out in favor of one of the Galactic Community’s oldest and most sworn enemies? You want to preach to us about peace and order?”
James…felt oddly in his element, as a dark, conniving smile crept over his face.
“Singlehandedly? You shouldn’t undersell yourself like that, Representative,” he replied with his shoulders lifted into a slight, leisurely shrug. “You and your people, the Captain especially, but also the High-Matriarch of the Zodiatos and several Councilpeople, you have all been more than pulling your weight when it comes to destabilizing the galaxy. In fact, I would say that you did the main bulk of the work. Me? I was merely there.”
Shaking his head and sighing amusedly, James then let his arms sink, moments before his gaze then turned stone cold.
“But fine,” he then continued his rebuttal, now much more serious than before. “Let’s assume for a second that we aren’t all allies here. That this wasn’t a peaceful meeting of the different species of the order simply to discuss how we should act with the Galaxy’s best in mind. And that there really was some sort conflict happening right now that was much bigger than just caution and defense on humanity’s part…Even then, condemning this attack would be absolutely essential. For all of us.”
He wondered if he even needed to say any more than that. After all, it was quite obvious. However, some of the representatives around here had also proven to be rather dense…
Still, James remained quiet for a time, simply wishing to observe for how many of the present people it would click.
“The implication being…?” the Missicapriej representative was the first of those whose faces hadn’t immediately darkened in understanding who pulled together the nerve to ask.
This time, Klanneifer had seemingly understood it without problems.
“If this was a conflict,” he said, using the same conjunctive that James was to keep things to a pure hypothetical while two of his arms fiddled with each other as the two others rubbed along his neck. “Or if it could turn into one…then the Galaxy’s reaction to this ‘first attack’ if we want to call it that…”
He broke off his sentence, seemingly unwilling to speak it into existence.
“It would set the tone for the future conflict,” Losaranarja finished the sentence for him, quickly granting herself speaking privileges as the host. “If the very war crime committed by one side to start the conflict is not condemned, then what reason would there be to not return it in kind – apart from maybe a personal wish to be better.”
The Missicapriej’s face shot around to James and stared up at him with unblinking yellow eyes.
“Ambassador, you are not implying that…” he said in a burst of nervous energy that dissipated before he could even finish his sentence, causing his voice to slowly fade out as James still refused to say anything until he was granted the word, sticking to the event’s rules as if superglued to them.
“I am not implying anything,” James said with harsh emphasis on the word ‘implying’. “I am stating that, no matter what scenario you may believe is going on either behind the scenes or elsewhere, there is only one reasonable reaction to such an attack – like I have done from the very start, I might add. But I’m going to repeat it for the entire rest of the day, if I have to. We humas are quite tenacious, after all.”
Many of the representatives turned to mumble quietly with their company, and news reporters eagerly spoke into the cameras, surely all spinning their own story of what James’ words could’ve meant.
Did he want conflict? No. By no means in fact. It was the furthest thing from his mind to even allow the thought of it being a valid possibility here.
However…the idea that he might be willing to cause one was a useful tool by itself. Even though demonstrations had been rare, by now the galaxy had gotten the chance to get a taste of humanity’s weaponry.
Would it be enough to fight the entire rest of the Galaxy head on? Of course not. Numbers didn’t lie. No matter the advantage their weapon technology would buy them, they were so horribly outnumbered that any chance at victory was basically a rounding error.
However, sometimes the question that people in front of the many screens across the galaxy asked themselves when they heard about talks like that wasn’t ‘could they actually win’, but tended to be more along the lines of ‘who will be the one to take the hit if they try?’
Because, while it was absolutely true that the Community technically had more than enough bodies to throw at any given problem, the approach of trying to see if you had more men or the machine-gun above the trench had more bullets wasn’t exactly the prettiest.
Especially not if Outer Orbital Bombardments would become a valid option in the conflict. After all, even planets were far from indestructible if the very laws of nature were already being bent to one’s will.
“The Galaxy’s eyes are on us today,” James announced to the room while using his best narrator voice, doing his best to sound utterly impartial for a moment. “You know my stance on the matter, of course. You know that and how I would judge you given whatever views you may hold. That I would much rather be judged by my character – flawed as it might be – than by the place that I was born. That I would see the unwarranted violence against those who think and act differently from the accepted norm punished and ceased. Yes, that I stand against the proposed homogeny and grey sludge of a culture that oh so many seem to wish to promulgate across the community and instead wish to invite and celebrate the many different lives and ways that have led us all to the stars. Celebrate it as a true Community, not a homogeny. And that I wish to be open to the new and the unusual, hopefully allowing it to enrich our lives. You all already know this. And usually, I would gladly and fervently fight every single one of you for that simple goal.”
He closed his eyes for a second, releasing a breath, before he continued,
“However,” he said and immediately paused again to give the words its necessary weight after such a declaration. “Right now, I do not care what your views on the treatment of deathworlds may be.”
He reached his left hand out to gently hold Shida by the shoulder as she sat beside him.
“I don’t care what your opinions on augmentations and those who choose to accept them on their bodies might be,” he continued, raising his mechanical arm, making a wide ark with it to present it to the entire room, before finally ending with a brief gesture in Curi’s direction.
“I don’t care whether or not you think an amenable Artificial Sapient is something that could exist or not,” he added, lifting both arms to gesture more towards the entire, open room.
“And I especially do not care whatsoever what you may or may not think of me personally,” he finished, bringing both arms back down to his chest to point at himself. “All I care about right now is that right now there is, as is so rarely the case, a clear right. And a clear wrong. In more ways than one, the damage is already done. All we can hope to do now is mend as much as we can while we still can, lest we allow it to spread to a load-bearing structure. Some people here might see this event as a political instrument, by I do not.”
He not-so-subtly glanced over at the Captain and his representative.
“Hate me if you like. Hate those I associate with if you like. That is something that may concern us at another time. But, please, right now, don’t make the galaxy suffer for it,” James then addressed everyone again, and he even caught the gaze of some cameras pointed directly at him as he spoke. “No matter what you think who is fighting who or what ‘sides’ you may think there are and which of these sides you think yourself on: The rules of war. Must. Stand. Because, no matter who it is that topples them, as soon as they fall, the Galactic Community will eventually fall with them.”
Although the weight of the importance of all of this was still very much pressing down on him and James would honestly still much rather have been basically anywhere else instead of standing here in front of the Galaxy while giving important-yet-heavy-handed speeches, he did have to admit…Monologuing like that was actually kind of fun. No wonder politicians liked to hear themselves talk so much…
However, by now, he was actually starting to wonder just how many times he could reiterate what was basically the same point in different, fancy ways. Or how often he would have to before it would hopefully sink in with everyone that he was being serious here. It honestly wasn’t that hard, after all.
Not to mention that no one had actually even really tried to refute him yet. Not that there was much to refute here, but they could at least pull some bullshit reasoning out of their ass instead of just sticking to ‘James bad’ or ‘AI bad’ here.
After all, even if they didn’t belief that Avezillion was 100% harmless, much like James still didn’t think that, anyone at the very least had to admit that Dunnima was, in fact, not currently a smoldering pile of ashes OR in the process of purging all of its systems in a coordinated cyber attack against the Realized, meaning she had to at least be different from the others they knew somehow.
Pausing his heartful speech-giving for a while to give people time to process, James used the moment of respite to scan across the faces of his company. Well, those who were visible anyway. The breathfilters of his human accompaniment still only let through the basic projections of their professionally stern faces. Well, that was with the exception of Nia of course. After an early, very clear shock and disbelief at what James had presented here, she had eventually calmed down again, although an air of an underlying uncertainty that bordered on disapproval had still remained for a time. However, now that she had heard him talk and give his reasons for a while, the light-pixels on her mask had more and more mellowed out and were now stuck in an expression somewhere in between a ‘you got this’ and a ‘let’s see where this goes’.
Although Curi’s face was of course basically impossible to read, given that it didn’t emote at all, James noticed that the cyborg’s stance was remarkably confident considering the amount of people they had to present themselves in front of. The knees of their massive backward legs were less bend than usual, pushing their body up higher than they normally carried themselves in a way that James equated to pushing one’s chest out.
Moar seemed to be far from happy about the current turn of events, however James was truly relieved to see that the main bulk of that unhappiness seemed to stem mostly from stress and a general discomfort brought on by it, instead of any aversion to what James was saying. Of course, a bit of background noise of worry and slowly creeping dread remained on the old woman’s face as her head turned sideways so one of her eyes could fully focus on him while one of her clawed hands loudly clacked along one of her notched horns, however it didn’t seem like she was ready to turn heel and abandon James with his self-made problems yet.
And, well, Congloarch was…smiling? It was hard to tell with the reptile’s armored skin and stiff lips, however something about the way his mouth stood half-opened, presenting rows of sharp teeth to the world, was a bit different than usual. There was almost a sense of….triumph in it. Or at least James thought so. Tonamstrosite expressions weren’t exactly something he had a huge amount of expertise in reading.
The mumbling and general prattle in the room stayed quite intense for a while, but even so, James remained quiet, still unwilling to speak up and interrupt the proceedings, even if just while whispering to his friends. He would have to see what they thought at a later time. In private, where he could also apologize for having to have kept this from many of them for so long.
It was good that it was finally out. Maybe he would even introduce Avezillion to them, who knew? She could surely use a couple more friends…although Moar might not quite be ready for that yet. The old lady had gotten a whole lot more tolerating ever since he had met her of course, but a Realized wanting to have chit-chat might still cross a bit of a line for now. He would have to ease her into this.
Curi, on the other hand, would likely be completely on board. Or…at least James assumed that they would. Thinking of it, he had never really talked to them about artificial sapients before. He just kind of assumed it would be an enticing idea to them, since they enjoyed anything technological so much AND also generally fell out of line with what the Galaxy did and did not find acceptable. However, it was entirely possible that any experiences or stories that may be ingrained into them could’ve made them just as averse to the artificial lifeform as most other people were. James doubted it, but it was possible.
After all, Nia also wasn’t generally someone who judged others before getting the full picture, but even she had some very choice opinions about AIs, he knew that much. Not that the same wasn’t true for James before he had met Avezillion, of course. Basically every human had grown up with stories about Michael, after all. And with the rest of the Galaxy corroborating the idea that Realized were generally aggressive maniacs, nothing had ever quite challenged those stories.
Everyone else of course already knew Avezillion…well, except for Congloarch. However, he wasn’t the most ‘personable’ person at the best of times, so James couldn’t quite imagine how trying to introduce him to Avezillion as a potential friend would- James suddenly snapped up as a feline tail subtly bumped against his side with much more force than it usually exerted. Apparently, Shida had decided to be a bit more innocuous than an elbow to the side would have been.
Damn it! Had he zoned out? Well, yeah, he had. But what did he miss? Who was talking right now?
The sound of the surrounding world gradually returning to his ears in a wave of noise made it hard to focus on the main voice that was currently speaking to the room, and so James quickly had to follow everyone’s gazes to see where they were looking in order to find the speaker. However, there wasn’t really a ‘speaker’ right now. But there was definitely somebody everyone was looking at.
Admittedly, James probably should’ve noticed them immediately on his own, because they were entirely out of place.
With silverish-grey fur and dark, rust-red markings, the Lachaxet that had, from James’ perspective, popped up from thin air in the middle of the room, but who had in reality most likely simply entered while he had been distractedly wandered lost in his own mind, differentiated themselves quite a bit from their conspecifics that James had met so far.
They had a for the species rather broad head and their solid-green eyes had an almost olive color to them. Said eyes were locked firmly onto Losaranarja as the deathwolrder leaned in to the small primate and whispered something into her ear.
Next to him, James could see Shida’s own listening apparati interestedly twitch, however he doubted that even she would be able to pick up on what was whispered that far away from them.
However, although he had even less chance of hearing anything that was being said, James also leaned in the direction of the conversation suspiciously, wondering whatever could be discussed at a moment like this.
Eventually, Losaranarja nodded, whispered something back to the Lachaxet, and then turned to look up in James’ general direction.
“Ambassador Aldwin and Representative Goloribal, could I maybe bother the both of you and your company to step down to me for a second?” she loudly asked the leader of the two adjacently seated groups up on the top rungs.
Inadvertently, James and Goloribal looked over at each other, clearly trying to see if the other party had anything to do with this interruption. James obviously hadn’t. And, at least if he could believe that face he was making, it seemed that Goloribal didn’t either – although there was a fair chance that he was just acting.
Turning to his company with a movement of his head, James then indicated for everyone to get up while he pushed himself to his feet.
Quickly, a protective formation was formed around him and his civilian company by his guards, who covered every angle of their descend down to the lower level with unshaking vigilance.
Admittedly, for a moment, the urge to simply jump over the railing and thus be down with Losaranarja within a second was quite alluring to James. After all, he had almost made a habit of jumping and climbing around in lower gravities like this one at this point. However, keeping up appearances prevailed over convenience for the time being, and so he decided to not pull a stunt like that after such a serious request from his host.
Instead, the human procession quickly and orderly made their way down the stairs, closely followed by that of the Simmiareskis.
Seemingly bored by the previous proceedings and intrigued by what was now going on, Sky hurried a bit ahead of her group to catch up with her fellow deathworlders, quickly reaching Tuya, who was forming the anchor position in their current formation.
James gave the inquisitive deer an acknowledging nod for a second, however otherwise his eyes were curiously directed at the other out-of-place deathworlder that had interrupted their proceedings.
The Lachaxet was turning their entire head around like an owl to keep their eyes on the descending groups, and the expression on their face was serious.
As the approaching groups were only a couple of measures away anymore, Losaranarja hopped off her podium and quickly hurried into their direction on all sixes, coming to a stop barely in front of James before subtly indicating with her two lower arms that it might be best if someone would lift her up.
Not hesitating to do so, James leaned down and presented his organic arm to her, allowing her to hold on and climb up the limb while James lifted her up into the air. Then, even if slightly begrudgingly so, he took her closer to the other representative.
With the pixemerrier on James’ shoulder and the simmiareskis walking on all fours, all of the primates were more or less on the same level and could therefore stand with their faces closely together as Losaranarja began whispering to them.
“Apparently, active threats have started to reach the security of the station regarding the both of you,” she quickly said without wasting any time with preamble. “Investigations are ongoing, but apparently some of the threats were deemed substantial enough that it was determined by security that it would be irresponsible to let this conference go on as it does for any longer. We do not wish to exclude you from the proceedings, however, and therefore you will be escorted to a more secure location from where you may rejoin the conference remotely. Ristefarreaux here has his team waiting just outside and is ready to immediately escort you there.”
James furrowed his brow while Goloribal turned to whisper something to Uton behind a lifted hand, although the Captain could only shake his head with an unsure expression.
“And do we not get a say in the matter?” James then asked, crossing his arms. “Personally, I’ve not made the best experiences with being escorted or confined by station security.”
While that was true, a much larger concern of his was to be confined in close quarters with these people. And that concern wasn’t exactly for himself.
“Any other course of action would be highly inadvisable,” Ristefarreaux chimed into the conversation, his large ears twitching and turning at the room’s noise. “If you are not compliant with safety measures, we would sadly have to escort you off the station for your own safety. Nedstaniot-Station’s security will not be responsible for any harm that befalls the Ambassador of humanity.”
His gaze was firm, and his voice didn’t exactly sound like he would allow much room for argument there.
James sighed and massaged his brow with his mechanical hand, seeing as the other shoulder was currently occupied.
“Thoughts?” he then asked, turning towards his company, with a specific gaze at Shida, Andrej and Koko.
Andrej rubbed the back if his head in thought, moving some of his long hair around in the process.
“Personally, I wouldn’t mind leaving if we have to,” the Major explained honestly with a tone that told of him not liking this new situation at all. However, after adding a shrug, he ended his sentence with, “But we should probably stick around if we can.”
Koko nodded.
“As long as we tell Earth to send the biggest ship we have if we don’t show back up on that broadcast in the next ten minutes or so, we should be fine,” she suggested casually. “If they want to mess with that, it’s their own fault.”
James nodded at the assertions of his higher-ranking friends. However, then he once again turned towards Shida with an empathic look on his face.
“Treasure?” he asked softly, remembering her earlier demeanor, and how much worse those feelings could become if allowed to stir in close proximity and without a way out.
Shida looked around for a bit, studying his face at first, before turning to throw a clearly heavily held back look with an empty expression over at Uton.
“I’ll be fine,” she then said with a just as empty but definitely decided tone. “This is important.”
James wondered if it would be better to resist here, because although Shida seemed sure about it for the most part, he wasn’t exactly certain if she should. However, he didn’t want to go against her like that. If she felt that she could handle this, he should support her – while also keeping an eye open in case she had misjudged things. Assuming things wouldn’t immediately go to hell as soon as they had reached this ‘secure location’ that the local security had in mind, they would hopefully still be able to pull out and leave the station instead if things did turn too overwhelming for the feline.
Therefore, James grit his teeth before turning back to the Lachaxet.
“I’ll have to make a quick call, but we’ll come with you,” he announced, to which the vulpine firmly nodded.
“We will of course also come,” Goloribal announced not even a second after. “Lead the way.”
After James had quickly allowed Losaranarja to climb off his shoulder again, and then made a ‘prepare for anything’ call back to Earth, the now involuntarily combined human and Simmiareskis groups were ushered outside by Ristefarreaux, where, just as promised, a larger group of Lachaxet security was already waiting for them. The vulpine deathworlders’ green, stiff eyes eerily stared at the emerging primates as they walked out of the conference room.
Despite the added safety, the human soldiers still moved in their defensive formation to make completely sure that no harm would befall their ambassador. Although, at least to a degree, the Lachaxet appeared to be professionals, as they avoided taking the threatened dignitaries to the outside where they could possibly easily be picked off by a sufficiently equipped threat. Instead, they were led “underground” – meaning deeper into the hull of the station.
James was all too familiar with this sort of area in a station by now. After all he had used it to quite efficiently traverse the G.C.S. when he himself did not want to be found. In that sense, they offered a certain comfort.
It seemed that once again this path was quite effective with avoiding any sort of contact with unwanted people, and so their travel was rather undisturbed as they made their way towards whatever destination security had planned for them.
“What kind of threats are we talking about exactly?” Koko eventually asked, seemingly both out of sincere interest in an urge to prepare herself for eventualities, evenly mixed with the sheer desire to fill the tense, dead air that had formed as it seemed that neither party really wanted to talk all that much while the other was this close by.
“I’m sad to say, too many to concisely list,” Ristefarreaux replied with a resigned squeaking noise. “We will gladly brief you once we have reached our destination. For now, let’s focus on getting you there without incident.”
“Ominous,” Koko replied with an eyeroll and a grimace, the humor in her voice poorly hiding her annoyance.
“At least the big lugs will be nice bullet sponges when it comes to it,” Admir whispered in English as he leaned in towards James, inconspicuously nodding in the Simmiareskis’ direction.
James gave him the most tired hint of a smirk as an answer, making full use of the fact that his face was now freed from masking constraints.
Then, he suddenly noticed that Shida had suddenly disappeared out of his periphery. In a moment of shock, his eyes quickly shot over towards Uton, who was walking some measures in front of him and keeping his gaze turned forwards. Not there…luckily…
Beginning to search around in other places after the first skipped beats of his heart, James’ eyes then soon enough landed on the dark shape of his girlfriend again. In actuality, Shida had barely moved at all. She had just slowed her steps ever so slightly, allowing herself to fall back a measure or so, so that she now walked along with a much larger but just as dark from next to her.
“You’re loo’n good,” Sky commented as her doe-eyes looked down at the feline, her head turning in a way that stretched one of her antlers far into the air.
“And you’re still growing like a weed, I see,” Shida commented back, her voice restrained and cordial. “How are you holding up.”
Her ears twitched once, and the movement was mirrored by the many flaps of the Ketzhir’s in a wave-like motion.
“Been be’er,” she replied with a shrug, her dialect still on full display in many spoken words despite Reprig’s previous best efforts to ‘educate’ her. “But also been much worse. Food comes easy now.”
Shida nodded.
“I bet it does,” she said, still very clearly holding a lot back. “And…other stuff?” Sky released a raspberry-like sound.
“Wor’s fine. Bit bo’ing at times, tho. Dun hol’ a candle to the stuff you’re doin’, I bet,” the former thief explained with an enthusiastic nudge in Shida’s direction. “But beats the brick or ta’in’ alms.”
Shida exhaled slowly.
“Does it?” she asked in a raspy sound under her breath.
“Sure,” Sky said nonchalantly. “Cap’n’s nice ‘slong as he wants sumethin’. Wants sumethin’ most of the time. So ‘e’s not too bad.”
Shida visibly clenched her jaw and shut her eyes tightly, clearly doing her best to thoroughly prepare to reply something that was well thought out.
However, Sky was quite a bit faster.
“Don’t worry,” she said in a casual yet calming manner. “I know ‘e’s got a few screws loose. But I’m a diver. I can watch out for it. ‘Sides, somewun ‘as to keep an eye on ‘im.”
“That someone should be an armed guard in front of a door without a key,” Shida replied to that, however James only understood as much because he was watching her as she spoke and could follow the movements of her mouth, because she was speaking so quietly that it was barely in his audible range even while standing almost right next to the conversation.
“Long ‘s it pays for work, I can fill that part as well,” Sky replied jovially with a snicker. Then, her gaze slowly snuck downwards towards the holstered weapon on Shida’s hip. “Would need someone to ‘and me a gun, though.”
In a more genuinve movement of emotion, Shida gave a scoffing chuckle through her teeth.
“Keep dreaming,” she replied to the cheeky doe before her. James could already tell that this was going to be an oh so fun evening…

2023.06.06 21:21 No-Umpire-7411 What’s the right balance?

Some background context. I am a binge drinker but not someone that drinks on the regular. I try to limit myself and not drink on the weekdays, as I hate how alcohol makes me feel. But that just means on on the weekend I will go balls to the walls. Especially if I’m feeling like I am white knuckling my way through the weekday. Is this hindering my progress on TSM? Should I be drinking any time I have a craving to help curb the craving? Should I just stick to what I have been doing? My ultimate goal is to be a social drinking who can have 2-3 and be able to walk away without needing another. I’ve been on and off of TSM for 2 years. And this is the first time I’ve been constantly and taking my pill 1 hour before drinking.

Verses AI has many catalysts that'll help it capitalize on the rapidly growing AI market (and a likely NASDAQ uplisting too) [DD on why I'm bullish on $VRSSF]:
Here is another round of updates and additional due diligence on $VRSSF (OTCQX)/ $VERS (NEO) to share. Since writing a DD for this stock on Reddit, it has nearly tripled. Volume has increased heavily since. Here is why I am EVEN MORE bullish now:
Original DD 2 months ago:https://www.reddit.com/pennystocks/comments/12awmzw/verses_ai_has_great_catalysts_that_can_help_it/
TLD Investment Thesis:
VERSES AI is a cognitive computing company that is developing a new type of AI that is designed to mimic human understanding. Verses AI is called GIA, has developed an advanced AI platform called KOSM which powers it. KOSM can connect data, rules, simulations, and processes to help businesses make better decisions. It also has a broad range of applications in industries such as smart cities, smart grids, and smart homes, to name a few.
Contrary to existing Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) like OpenAI’s GPT, Google’s BARD, and Meta’s LLAMA, which generate content based on inferred patterns but lack deep comprehension, VERSES is striving for a more human-like understanding. They aim for their AI not merely to mimic but to truly understand, incorporating new information post-training and applying nuance, similar to a human brain.
Today (6/5), the largest law firm in the world, Dentons, has co-authored a 50-page whitepaper with VERSES on how to govern AI, titled “A Path to Global AI Governance”. The report by VERSES and Dentons is a valuable contribution to the debate about the governance of AI, as it is a set of protocols, believed to become the backbone of AI governance. The report’s recommendations are comprehensive and well-argued, and they offer a roadmap for how to ensure that AI is used safely and responsibly.
Verses AI has a strong team of experienced AI professionals, and it has raised over $20 million in funding (this funding will help the company to grow its business and develop its AI platform). The company is already working with Fortune 500 companies, and it has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry.
VERSES’s leadership and technology AI team is led by Dr. Karl Friston (Dr. Karl Friston is a prominent British neuroscientist and theoretical neurobiologist, widely recognized for his work on brain imaging, neural networks, and computational models of brain function) and others who have a lot of experience in AI, IoT, Robotics, VAR, Enterprise Software, and Global Sales.
If GIA is successful, it could revolutionize the field of AI. Here are some of the benefits of VERSES’s AI:
  • It could be more accurate and less biased than current AI models.
  • It could be able to learn and adapt more easily.
  • It could be able to interact with the physical world in a more natural way.
Looking at the AI industry’s prospective growth, it’s slated to become a trillion-dollar industry by 2030, with a CAGR of over 40%. The AI market is growing rapidly. The global AI market is expected to reach $422.37 billion by 2028.
VERSES offers an AI ecosystem for a variety of global solutions to B2B, B2G and B2C businesses in across all major industries. Their business model includes various revenue streams such as licensing, Joint Ventures, KOSM fees, compute fees, transaction fees, and marketplace fees.
Verses AI’s focus on diversifying revenue streams and strategic collaborations offers a strong and sustainable business model. The AI industry’s exponential growth, plus Verses AI’s strong foundation and partnerships are very attractive.
VERSES’s AI could have a major impact on a variety of industries, including:
  • Manufacturing: GIA could be used to automate tasks, improve quality control, and reduce costs.
  • Logistics: GIA could be used to optimize transportation routes, track inventory, and manage supply chains.
  • Healthcare: GIA could be used to diagnose diseases, provide personalized care, and develop new treatments.
  • Education: GIA could be used to personalize learning, provide feedback, and create engaging educational experiences.
VRSSF has good upside potential, a strong business model with multiple revenue streams, significant revenue potential, near-term growth catalysts, a strong cash position as well and has intentions to uplist onto NASDAQ
Verses AI is up while C3.ai $AI is down. The trading volume of VRSSF has increased a lot. The average volume stands at 369,753, but the most recent volume was nearly three times that at 1,092,582. This increased activity shows heightened investor interest and could signify a positive momentum shift.

https://preview.redd.it/cbb3u4rtff4b1.png?width=638&format=png&auto=webp&s=5754d9b081987de05dd7ad6f70c29d32316730a9
Overall, the technical analysis data for Verses AI is positive. The stock is trading above its moving averages, the RSI is above 50 and rising, and volume is increasing. These are all bullish signs that suggest that the stock could continue to rise in the future.

Financials/ Valuation Data:
  • Revenue: Revenue has been growing steadily in recent quarters, with a 101.20% YoY quarterly revenue growth. This shows that the company is growing its business and generating more revenue.
  • The sales growth from 2021 to 2022 is a 2,606.59%. The company has leaped from revenue of 128.5K to 3.48M in just one year. This demonstrates the increasing demand for their products and services and indicates that they’re effectively penetrating the market.
  • Earnings: Earnings per share (EPS) has been negative in recent quarters, but it is trending upwards. This shows that the company is on the path to profitability.
  • One critical takeaway from the financials is the company’s ability to control its operating expenses, which dropped significantly from $16.91 million to $4.27 million. This is a strong indication that management is focused on efficiency and cost control, which is an excellent sign for future profitability.
  • Many young companies, especially in technology, often operate at a loss in their early years as they invest heavily in research, development, and market penetration. The fact that VRSSF has seen such rapid sales growth and improvement in gross income suggests they are on a great path.
  • Cash flow: Cash flow from operations has been positive in recent quarters, which means that the company is generating enough cash to cover its operating expenses.
  • Debt: Debt is relatively low, which means that the company does not have a lot of financial obligations.

Technical Analysis & Price Action:
The trading volume of VRSSF is a noteworthy point. The average volume stands at 369,753, but the most recent volume was nearly three times that at 1,092,582, and recently trading more than 2,000,000 shares daily. This increased activity shows heightened investor interest and could signify a positive momentum shift.
  • Moving averages: The 50-day moving average is rising, which is a bullish sign. The 200-day moving average is also rising, which is a sign of a long-term uptrend.
  • Relative strength index (RSI): The RSI is above 50, which is a bullish sign. The RSI is also rising, which is a sign of increasing momentum.
  • Bollinger bands: The Bollinger bands are widening, which is a sign of increasing volatility. However, the bands are still relatively narrow, which is a sign of a healthy market.
  • Volume: Volume is increasing, which is a bullish sign. Increasing volume shows that more people are buying the stock, which is a sign of increasing demand.

Conclusion: Overall, Verses AI is a company with a lot of potential. It has a strong team, a solid financial foundation, and a number of innovative products and services. Verses AI can revolutionize the field of AI by being more accurate and less biased than current models while being able to learn and adapt more easily. I believe that Verses AI has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry, and I am bullish on the company.
If you have any additional information, please let me know. Have you heard of it? Are you watching it? Do you own it?

Recent News/Catalysts:
In June 20023, the largest law firm in the world, Dentons, has co-authored a 50-page whitepaper with VERSES on how to govern AI, titled “A Path to Global AI Governance”. Dentons and VERSES have put forward a set of protocols, believed to become the backbone of AI governance. They offer a standard framework, aiming to foster the responsible growth of AI technologies. The report by VERSES and Dentons is a valuable contribution to the debate about the governance of AI. The report’s recommendations are comprehensive and well-argued, and they offer a roadmap for how to ensure that AI is used safely and responsibly.
In March 2023, Verses AI raised an additional C$600,000, bringing the total amount of capital raised to C$7,504,845.30. This funding will help the company to continue to grow and develop its AI technologies.
In March 2023, Verses AI announced a strategic partnership with SimWell, a leader in digital simulations. The partnership will combine Verses AI’s advanced AI technology with SimWell’s experience in building digital twins to deliver predictive modeling simulations. This collaboration will empower enterprise clients in various sectors to generate real-time models to make data-driven decisions, optimize processes, and reduce costs.
In February 2023, Verses AI announced the development of a next-generation AI personal assistant called GIA (General Intelligent Agent). GIA will automate data organization, predictive reasoning, and the ability to learn over time. GIA is poised to become the first intelligent all-in-one solution for anyone seeking a smarter way to organize, manage, and automate their personal and professional activities. Verses AI is planning the international beta rollout of GIA beginning in the summer of 2023.
In February 2023, Verses AI partnered with SVT Robotics to expand the application of AI in industrial environments, specifically warehouses and distribution centers. As the demand for automation and AI continues to grow, strategic partnerships like this can create a competitive edge and open up new opportunities for companies involved in the supply chain and logistics sector.
In November 2022, Verses Technologies and Blue Yonder have partnered to provide adaptive intelligence and Spatial Twin management applications to Blue Yonder’s global logistics customers. These applications will help improve workflow optimization, traceability, and intelligent automation in warehouses and distribution centers. This partnership is a good thing for the global supply chain. It will help companies to address some of the persistent challenges that they are currently facing, such as labor shortages, equipment availability, and the ripple effect of global bottlenecks. By implementing these advanced technologies, supply chain companies can enhance their routing, slotting, and capacity management. As the world continues to face supply chain challenges, this partnership is a good step towards addressing current supply chain issues by using AI technology. Additionally, it will help companies to automate tasks, which can free up employees to focus on more strategic work.

Here is another round of updates and additional due diligence on $VRSSF (OTCQX)/ $VERS (NEO) to share. Since writing a DD for this stock on Reddit, it has nearly tripled. Volume has increased heavily since. Here is why I am EVEN MORE bullish now:

TLD Investment Thesis:
VERSES AI is a cognitive computing company that is developing a new type of AI that is designed to mimic human understanding. Verses AI is called GIA, has developed an advanced AI platform called KOSM which powers it. KOSM can connect data, rules, simulations, and processes to help businesses make better decisions. It also has a broad range of applications in industries such as smart cities, smart grids, and smart homes, to name a few.
Contrary to existing Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) like OpenAI’s GPT, Google’s BARD, and Meta’s LLAMA, which generate content based on inferred patterns but lack deep comprehension, VERSES is striving for a more human-like understanding. They aim for their AI not merely to mimic but to truly understand, incorporating new information post-training and applying nuance, similar to a human brain.
Today (6/5), the largest law firm in the world, Dentons, has co-authored a 50-page whitepaper with VERSES on how to govern AI, titled “A Path to Global AI Governance”. The report by VERSES and Dentons is a valuable contribution to the debate about the governance of AI, as it is a set of protocols, believed to become the backbone of AI governance. The report’s recommendations are comprehensive and well-argued, and they offer a roadmap for how to ensure that AI is used safely and responsibly.
Verses AI has a strong team of experienced AI professionals, and it has raised over $20 million in funding (this funding will help the company to grow its business and develop its AI platform). The company is already working with Fortune 500 companies, and it has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry.
VERSES’s leadership and technology AI team is led by Dr. Karl Friston (Dr. Karl Friston is a prominent British neuroscientist and theoretical neurobiologist, widely recognized for his work on brain imaging, neural networks, and computational models of brain function) and others who have a lot of experience in AI, IoT, Robotics, VAR, Enterprise Software, and Global Sales.
If GIA is successful, it could revolutionize the field of AI. Here are some of the benefits of VERSES’s AI:
  • It could be more accurate and less biased than current AI models.
  • It could be able to learn and adapt more easily.
  • It could be able to interact with the physical world in a more natural way.
Looking at the AI industry’s prospective growth, it’s slated to become a trillion-dollar industry by 2030, with a CAGR of over 40%. The AI market is growing rapidly. The global AI market is expected to reach $422.37 billion by 2028.
VERSES offers an AI ecosystem for a variety of global solutions to B2B, B2G and B2C businesses in across all major industries. Their business model includes various revenue streams such as licensing, Joint Ventures, KOSM fees, compute fees, transaction fees, and marketplace fees.
Verses AI’s focus on diversifying revenue streams and strategic collaborations offers a strong and sustainable business model. The AI industry’s exponential growth, plus Verses AI’s strong foundation and partnerships are very attractive.
VERSES’s AI could have a major impact on a variety of industries, including:
  • Manufacturing: GIA could be used to automate tasks, improve quality control, and reduce costs.
  • Logistics: GIA could be used to optimize transportation routes, track inventory, and manage supply chains.
  • Healthcare: GIA could be used to diagnose diseases, provide personalized care, and develop new treatments.
  • Education: GIA could be used to personalize learning, provide feedback, and create engaging educational experiences.
VRSSF has good upside potential, a strong business model with multiple revenue streams, significant revenue potential, near-term growth catalysts, a strong cash position as well and has intentions to uplist onto NASDAQ
Verses AI is up while C3.ai $AI is down. The trading volume of VRSSF has increased a lot. The average volume stands at 369,753, but the most recent volume was nearly three times that at 1,092,582. This increased activity shows heightened investor interest and could signify a positive momentum shift.

https://preview.redd.it/ot33c35rff4b1.png?width=638&format=png&auto=webp&s=844cd8ae6956cd9888ffde248181d6e4c650809d
Overall, the technical analysis data for Verses AI is positive. The stock is trading above its moving averages, the RSI is above 50 and rising, and volume is increasing. These are all bullish signs that suggest that the stock could continue to rise in the future.

Financials/ Valuation Data:
  • Revenue: Revenue has been growing steadily in recent quarters, with a 101.20% YoY quarterly revenue growth. This shows that the company is growing its business and generating more revenue.
  • The sales growth from 2021 to 2022 is a 2,606.59%. The company has leaped from revenue of 128.5K to 3.48M in just one year. This demonstrates the increasing demand for their products and services and indicates that they’re effectively penetrating the market.
  • Earnings: Earnings per share (EPS) has been negative in recent quarters, but it is trending upwards. This shows that the company is on the path to profitability.
  • One critical takeaway from the financials is the company’s ability to control its operating expenses, which dropped significantly from $16.91 million to $4.27 million. This is a strong indication that management is focused on efficiency and cost control, which is an excellent sign for future profitability.
  • Many young companies, especially in technology, often operate at a loss in their early years as they invest heavily in research, development, and market penetration. The fact that VRSSF has seen such rapid sales growth and improvement in gross income suggests they are on a great path.
  • Cash flow: Cash flow from operations has been positive in recent quarters, which means that the company is generating enough cash to cover its operating expenses.
  • Debt: Debt is relatively low, which means that the company does not have a lot of financial obligations.

Technical Analysis & Price Action:
The trading volume of VRSSF is a noteworthy point. The average volume stands at 369,753, but the most recent volume was nearly three times that at 1,092,582, and recently trading more than 2,000,000 shares daily. This increased activity shows heightened investor interest and could signify a positive momentum shift.
  • Moving averages: The 50-day moving average is rising, which is a bullish sign. The 200-day moving average is also rising, which is a sign of a long-term uptrend.
  • Relative strength index (RSI): The RSI is above 50, which is a bullish sign. The RSI is also rising, which is a sign of increasing momentum.
  • Bollinger bands: The Bollinger bands are widening, which is a sign of increasing volatility. However, the bands are still relatively narrow, which is a sign of a healthy market.
  • Volume: Volume is increasing, which is a bullish sign. Increasing volume shows that more people are buying the stock, which is a sign of increasing demand.

Conclusion: Overall, Verses AI is a company with a lot of potential. It has a strong team, a solid financial foundation, and a number of innovative products and services. Verses AI can revolutionize the field of AI by being more accurate and less biased than current models while being able to learn and adapt more easily. I believe that Verses AI has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry, and I am bullish on the company.

Overall, the technical analysis data for Verses AI is positive. The stock is trading above its moving averages, the RSI is above 50 and rising, and volume is increasing. These are all bullish signs that suggest that the stock could continue to rise in the future.

Financials/ Valuation Data:
  • Revenue: Revenue has been growing steadily in recent quarters, with a 101.20% YoY quarterly revenue growth. This shows that the company is growing its business and generating more revenue.
  • The sales growth from 2021 to 2022 is a 2,606.59%. The company has leaped from revenue of 128.5K to 3.48M in just one year. This demonstrates the increasing demand for their products and services and indicates that they’re effectively penetrating the market.
  • Earnings: Earnings per share (EPS) has been negative in recent quarters, but it is trending upwards. This shows that the company is on the path to profitability.
  • One critical takeaway from the financials is the company’s ability to control its operating expenses, which dropped significantly from $16.91 million to $4.27 million. This is a strong indication that management is focused on efficiency and cost control, which is an excellent sign for future profitability.
  • Many young companies, especially in technology, often operate at a loss in their early years as they invest heavily in research, development, and market penetration. The fact that VRSSF has seen such rapid sales growth and improvement in gross income suggests they are on a great path.
  • Cash flow: Cash flow from operations has been positive in recent quarters, which means that the company is generating enough cash to cover its operating expenses.
  • Debt: Debt is relatively low, which means that the company does not have a lot of financial obligations.

Technical Analysis & Price Action:
The trading volume of VRSSF is a noteworthy point. The average volume stands at 369,753, but the most recent volume was nearly three times that at 1,092,582, and recently trading more than 2,000,000 shares daily. This increased activity shows heightened investor interest and could signify a positive momentum shift.
  • Moving averages: The 50-day moving average is rising, which is a bullish sign. The 200-day moving average is also rising, which is a sign of a long-term uptrend.
  • Relative strength index (RSI): The RSI is above 50, which is a bullish sign. The RSI is also rising, which is a sign of increasing momentum.
  • Bollinger bands: The Bollinger bands are widening, which is a sign of increasing volatility. However, the bands are still relatively narrow, which is a sign of a healthy market.
  • Volume: Volume is increasing, which is a bullish sign. Increasing volume shows that more people are buying the stock, which is a sign of increasing demand.

Conclusion: Overall, Verses AI is a company with a lot of potential. It has a strong team, a solid financial foundation, and a number of innovative products and services. Verses AI can revolutionize the field of AI by being more accurate and less biased than current models while being able to learn and adapt more easily. I believe that Verses AI has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry, and I am bullish on the company.

2023.06.06 18:52 throwawayyy2024 Dull pain and redness for 1.5 months on outer labia (21F) Help!

21F, 5'5", 120 lbs, white, located in USA
Primary Complaint: Dull pain and redness on left side of outer labia
Current conditions: high heart rate, occasional hives
Medications: atenolol 3x a week for high heart rate (super low dosage), antihistamines as needed, naproxen for periods when needed
Very occasional drinking (though nothing since problem started), no smoking, and no recreational drugs.
For the last 1.5 months I have had redness and an almost constant, dull pain (similar to the pain you would have if you got bruised and someone always pressed on the bruise) on the left side of my outer labia (pretty close to my actual labia where there is no hair growth). I do not shave or wax there, and have avoided wearing tight pants and underwear. No intimacy since it started and my partner and I are clean of STDs. Near the area (but closer to my clitoris on the outer labia), I had one small white head looking bump, which has improved significantly since. Recently, I have developed a very slight burn and itch - though could be from the Florida heat maybe? I saw an NP at my OBGYN office 3 weeks ago who could not figure out what was wrong, gave me yeast infection pills and an intra-vaginal gel which did not help at all (even though she said it did not look like BV, yeast, etc). As a student, this is frustrating since I want to be able to wear pants/need to sit to study for long periods of time. I am really frustrated that this issue will not resolve.

2023.06.06 18:48 TonyLiberty Verses AI has many catalysts that'll help it capitalize on the rapidly growing AI market (and a likely NASDAQ uplisting too) [DD on why I'm bullish on $VRSSF (OTC)/ $VERS.NEO]:

Here is another round of updates and additional due diligence on $VRSSF (OTCQX)/ $VERS (NEO) to share. Since writing a DD for this stock on Reddit, it has nearly tripled. Volume has increased heavily since. Here is why I am EVEN MORE bullish now:
Original DD 2 months ago:https://www.reddit.com/pennystocks/comments/12awmzw/verses_ai_has_great_catalysts_that_can_help_it/”
TLD Investment Thesis: VERSES AI is a cognitive computing company that is developing a new type of AI that is designed to mimic human understanding. Verses AI is called GIA, has developed an advanced AI platform called KOSM which powers it. KOSM can connect data, rules, simulations, and processes to help businesses make better decisions. It also has a broad range of applications in industries such as smart cities, smart grids, and smart homes, to name a few.
Contrary to existing Generative AI and Large Language Models (LLMs) like OpenAI’s GPT, Google’s BARD, and Meta’s LLAMA, which generate content based on inferred patterns but lack deep comprehension, VERSES is striving for a more human-like understanding. They aim for their AI not merely to mimic but to truly understand, incorporating new information post-training and applying nuance, similar to a human brain.
Today (6/5), the largest law firm in the world, Dentons, has co-authored a 50-page whitepaper with VERSES on how to govern AI, titled “A Path to Global AI Governance”. The report by VERSES and Dentons is a valuable contribution to the debate about the governance of AI, as it is a set of protocols, believed to become the backbone of AI governance. The report’s recommendations are comprehensive and well-argued, and they offer a roadmap for how to ensure that AI is used safely and responsibly.
Verses AI has a strong team of experienced AI professionals, and it has raised over $20 million in funding (this funding will help the company to grow its business and develop its AI platform). The company is already working with Fortune 500 companies, and it has the potential to be a major player in the AI industry.
VERSES’s leadership and technology AI team is led by Dr. Karl Friston (Dr. Karl Friston is a prominent British neuroscientist and theoretical neurobiologist, widely recognized for his work on brain imaging, neural networks, and computational models of brain function) and others who have a lot of experience in AI, IoT, Robotics, VAR, Enterprise Software, and Global Sales.
If GIA is successful, it could revolutionize the field of AI. Here are some of the benefits of VERSES’s AI: - It could be more accurate and less biased than current AI models. - It could be able to learn and adapt more easily. - It could be able to interact with the physical world in a more natural way. Looking at the AI industry’s prospective growth, it’s slated to become a trillion-dollar industry by 2030, with a CAGR of over 40%. The AI market is growing rapidly. The global AI market is expected to reach $422.37 billion by 2028.
VERSES offers an AI ecosystem for a variety of global solutions to B2B, B2G and B2C businesses in across all major industries. Their business model includes various revenue streams such as licensing, Joint Ventures, KOSM fees, compute fees, transaction fees, and marketplace fees. Verses AI’s focus on diversifying revenue streams and strategic collaborations offers a strong and sustainable business model. The AI industry’s exponential growth, plus Verses AI’s strong foundation and partnerships are very attractive.
VERSES’s AI could have a major impact on a variety of industries, including: - Manufacturing: GIA could be used to automate tasks, improve quality control, and reduce costs. - Logistics: GIA could be used to optimize transportation routes, track inventory, and manage supply chains. - Healthcare: GIA could be used to diagnose diseases, provide personalized care, and develop new treatments. - Education: GIA could be used to personalize learning, provide feedback, and create engaging educational experiences.
