2023.05.28 05:18 IndependencePlus5557 A Timeline of Hubris: the Duggar Trainwreck
I’ve been doing a deep dive into the Duggar train wreck in preparation for the documentary coming up. Reading court documents, police reports, AMAs, Google, this subreddit, obituaries, news articles, etc. The common element in their descent into disgrace is arrogance, hypocrisy, hubris, or whatever you want to call it. Every step of the way.
2002-2003: Pest (14/15 yo) starts molesting young girls 🤮
2003: JB, Meech, and Holts made aware—JB brought Pest to pedo-friend state trooper to “report” his crime, but trooper failed to investigate and report. 😡
2004: Despite knowing they had a seriously disturbed son who had molested their own daughters, JB and Meech debut their family in 14 children and pregnant again. 🤑
2006-2007: JB runs for Arkansas State Senate and loses. 😮💨 4 more shows aired including one airing after the Oprah debacle in late 2006 (Family was in Chicago filming an interview, but it was cancelled when Alice tipped off Oprah that Josh had molested 5 girls). Oprah alerted Arkansas CPS. A second person (letter reader) also alerted CPS at this time. A police report was made. Apparently, CPS investigated but we don’t know the outcome of that. Meanwhile, starting in 2007, Alice and others were posting on OG snark boards about Duggar family dirt. 🤔
2008-2015: They really played with fire 🔥 here. An 8-year-run on national television portraying a wholesome, Christian, pure family.
2013: Josh moves to DC to work for Family Research Council, a right wing organization dedicated to “family values” and “traditional marriage”. 🤢 2014: Meech records transphobic robocall that says in part, "I doubt that Fayetteville parents would stand for a law that would endanger their daughters or allow them to be traumatized by a man joining them in their private space.”🤬 2015: Lesbian couple protests Meech’s robocall by kissing in front of TTH with marriage certificate in hand. 🏳️🌈 Photo goes viral and InTouch seeks them out for an interview. One of the women, Tandra Barnfield knew about the Duggar family secrets and pointed the reporter in the right direction to obtain a FOIA for the 2006 police report. InTouch publishes the police report and 19KAC was cancelled and Pest fired from FRC. 🌞
June 2015: JB and Meech, Jill and Jessa appear on Megyn Kelly - JB and Meech lie and revictimize their daughters 😔
Aug 2015: Pest goes back to AR in disgrace only to have the Ashley Madison scandal erupt just 3 months later-so much for “family values”🤡
Dec 2015-2021: Wait, they come back only this time without Pest. Counting On comes back on for another 5 years. How did this show not jump the 🦈, I do not know.
Nov 2019: Pest’s car lot raided by HSI Apr 2021: Pest arrested for CSAM June 2021: Counting On cancelled Dec 2021: JB lies under oath—“can’t remember” Dec 9, 2021: Pest convicted 😈 Dec 14, 2021: JB loses Republican primary 😵💫
They could have stopped the train wreck at so many points but 💰 🤥👺won out. Most tragically, if Bobye and other friends can be believed, 13-year-old Pest felt guilt and remorse and could have been rehabilitated if proper steps were taken in 2003.

2023.05.28 05:02 thuragath Are the official Remote Play apps fundamentally different across the various OS's? Including a detailed list of everything I've tried to fix the problems I've had
By fundamentally, I mean apart from the specifics needed to run appropriately on the specific OS. Do they talk to the PS Network differently, interact with routers differently, etc? With everything I've tried, it really points to the Windows Remote Play app.
I've done as much at home research as I can on why Remote Play performance is bad on my laptop and pristine on my phone, and I'm honestly done trying. So this post will be long, and I will provide everything in my setup and most of what I've tried to fix this. Maybe it'll help someone.
PS5 on wired connection Laptop specs:
- Processor 11th Gen Intel(R) Core(TM) i7-11800H @ 2.30GHz 2.30 GHz
- Installed RAM 32.0 GB
- Nvidia RTX 3070 Laptop GPU, previous laptop had a 1070
- Network Card Intel(R) Wi-Fi 6 AX201 160MHz connected to 5Ghz Wifi
- ASUS RT-AX82U - Firmware 184.108.40.206.388_22525
- Static IP set for my laptop and the PS5
- Ports forwarded to PS5 (literally every port I found referenced for PS4/5):
- Smart Connect disabled, 2.4 Ghz and 5 Ghz separate
- 802.11ax /Wifi 6 mode enabled
- Samsung - doesn't matter, all issues were present both with and without HDMI plugged in to the PS5
- Router, PS5, and Laptop are all in main living room. PS5 is wired to router ~1 foot away, Laptop is ~10 feet away with full line of sight to the router.
Things I've tried that haven't worked over the past several years, off and on:
- Frequent stuttering (audio and video), slight input lag, significant lag spikes and sporadic disconnects.
- These issues have been present on my previous laptop and different router.
- HDMI plugged/unplugged - I've seen people suggesting some kind of HDMI interference. I'd run into something I thought was similar, but ruled that out.
- Something I could never replicate with any regularity, I did run into interference that cleared up when I unplugged our Roku that was attached to the same Samsung OneConnect peripheral
- Both 2.4 and 5ghz bands
- Router and network card updates
- Port Forwarding (both to PS5 and to laptop)
- I know at some point I had done some research on active channels on my router and others in my neighborhood but don't recall any significant improvement
I'm sure there's other stuff I've tried and long since forgotten, but if it pops back in my head I'll post it here.

2023.05.28 04:57 RadusNash Concerned parent of a gifted 7 year old
(Apologies in advance for the long story. Skip to TL;DR for the question)
When my son turned four years old, it was the first time he spoke a single word. However, even at the tender age of two, we noticed his extraordinary memory skills. Being a self-proclaimed nerd, I would often engage in various activities with him during our father-son time. These activities included exploring maps and identifying different countries, examining pictures of planets in our solar system, and discovering fascinating sea creatures.
I have a video that captures a delightful moment when he was just two and a half years old. In the video, he giggles while using his tiny finger to point out the exact location of every country I asked him about on a world map. It was truly remarkable to witness his budding knowledge and enthusiasm at such a young age.
At the age of seven, my son has achieved an impressive level of mastery in various subjects, including geography, astronomy, the periodic table (with all 118 elements and their qualities), and is performing at a fourth-grade level in math and reading, with a Lexile score above 1k.
However, his early years in education were not without challenges. As a pre-kindergartener, he proved to be a rather challenging child to handle in school. He would quickly become bored and struggle to follow directions. Our first attempt at enrolling him in a Montessori school ended with them informing us that they were unable to accommodate his needs. We then decided to enroll him in a discovery-driven pre-K program that required a daily commute of about an hour each way. Fortunately, this arrangement worked well for him until he transitioned to public school for kindergarten, which is rated A+ in the State we live in (WI, USA).
Unfortunately, the boredom resurfaced in Grade 1. He frequently received the dreaded yellow or sometimes pink slips, indicating that he either ignored the teachers' instructions, refused to read fiction books (as he only had an interest in non-fiction), or occasionally hummed music during class sessions - for which he was asked to stand outside the class room. Sometimes, he lacks common sense and emotional intelligence to deal with things that a typical 7yo do.
Having recognized the limitations of the US public school system in meeting our child's educational needs, we made the decision to enroll him in one of the top-tier private schools in the state, despite the exorbitant tuition fees involved. After assessing his aptitude, the school recommended that he should begin at Grade 3, skipping a level, and we agreed to this recommendation. The new school year is set to commence in September, and we are hopeful for a positive outcome. However, we are also filled with anxiety, uncertain whether the new school will provide sufficient challenges to prevent him from becoming bored, or if they may ultimately conclude that they are unable to accommodate his unique requirements.
In light of our current situation, I turn to this esteemed community for guidance. Whether you have experienced a similar situation with your own child or have faced challenges in navigating the educational system, I kindly request your insights on the best course of action to ensure a bright future for my son. We are concerned that homeschooling may become the only viable option, but we worry that deviating from the US school system may jeopardize his chances of attending high school and college and excelling academically. Your perspectives and advice are greatly appreciated. Thank you.

2023.05.28 04:51 Junior_Button5882 11 Terrifying-But-True Horror Stories Reported in the News - From fatal exorcisms to unexplained deaths and devil worship—these are some real-life nightmares.
A terrifying movie
gets your blood pumping in the moment of consumption, sure—we covered our eyes in Squid Game
with the rest of the world. But for the most part, you rest easy afterward knowing that what you've witnessed is fiction, deliberately spun up to creep you out. When the real world gets eerier than anything Stephen King
could dream up, that's
when you have every right to get a little scared of the dark.
Once in a while, a story of a dreadful disappearance, demonic possession, or devil worship will land in the local paper instead of a pulpy old paperback. We've rounded up the most unnerving real-life tales below. In honor of spooky season, here are eleven we can't stop thinking about.
The Axe Murder House
The Villisca Axe Murder House in Villisca, Iowa is a well-known tourist attraction for ghost hunters and horror lovers alike. The site of a gruesome unsolved 1912 murder, in which six children and two adults had their skulls completely crushed by the axe of an unknown perpetrator, was purchased in 1994, restored to its 1912 condition, and converted into a tourist destination. It costs $428 a night to stay
at the old haunted home, where visitors always report strange paranormal experiences, such as visions of a man with an axe roaming the halls or the faint screams of children.
But in November of 2014, the haunting took a darker turn. Robert Steven Laursen Jr., 37, of Rhinelander, Wisconsin was on a regular recreational paranormal visit with friends when true horror struck. Per VICE
His companions found him stabbed in the chest—an apparently self-inflicted wound—called 9-1-1, and Laursen was brought to a nearby hospital before being helicoptered to Creighton University Medical Center in Omaha.
The Montgomery County Sheriff’s Office said
Laursen suffered the self-inflicted injury at about 12:45 a.m., which is around the same time the 1912 axe murders in the house began.
Laursen recovered from his injuries, but has never spoken publicly about what occurred that day. For Martha Linn, the owner of the home, the incident was very upsetting. "It's publicity, but it's not exactly the kind of publicity you desire to have. I don't want people thinking that when they come to the Villisca Axe Murder House something's going to happen that's going to make them do something like that.” The house remains open for tourist visits and overnight stays today.

The Haunted Doll
When you think of haunted dolls, it’s likely the creepy old Victorian-looking porcelain kind that springs to mind. None of which you probably have laying around. Still, don’t get too comfortable around any kids toys too soon, though: a Disney’s Frozen
Elsa doll that was gifted for Christmas 2013 in the Houston area made headlines earlier this year when it seemingly became haunted.
Per KPRC2 Houston News:
The doll recited phrases from the movie Frozen and sang “Let It Go” when a button on its necklace was pressed.
“For two years it did that in English,” mother Emily Madonia said. “In 2015, it started doing it alternating between Spanish and English. There wasn’t a button that changed these, it was just random."
The family has owned the doll for more than six years and never changed its batteries. The mother says the doll would randomly begin to speak and sing even with its switch turned off.
The family decided to throw the creepy doll out in December of 2019. Weeks later, they found it inside a bench in their living room. “The kids insisted they didn’t put it there, and I believed them because they wouldn’t have dug through the garbage outside,” Madonia told KPRC2 Houston News.
At that point, Elsa ceased to sing the English rendition of “Let It Go” altogether, speaking only Spanish when pressed. The family then double-bagged the bizarre doll and placed it at the bottom of their garbage which was taken out on garbage day. They went on a trip shortly after, but when they returned, Elsa too had come back, and was waiting in the backyard of their home.
This time, the family mailed Elsa to a family friend in Minnesota, who taped the haunted doll to the front bumper of his truck. It doesn’t seem to have made its way back to Houston yet, as per Madonia’s latest February Facebook update
on the creepy doll.
A Deadly Exorcism
In August 2016 in North London, 26-year-old Kennedy Ife began acting strange and aggressive following a pain in his throat. He reportedly bit his father, threatened to cut off his own penis, and complained of a python or snake inside of him before his family restrained him to a bed with cable ties and excessive force.
As the BBC reported
“The family then set about attempting to ‘cure’ Kennedy through restraint and prayer over the next three days, the court was told.”
His brother, Colin Ife, told
“It’s clear that thing was in him, what we believed was a demon because it was not natural. It was clearly trying to kill him,” he said.
“We had to restrain him for himself. It was clear if we didn’t restrain him, he could have tried to harm people in our family.”
Kennedy Ife had been bound to his bed for three days without medical attention when his brother called emergency services, explaining that Kennedy Ife was complaining of dehydration. He appeared to have developed breathing issues, and was pronounced dead at 10:17 a.m.
As The Independent reported
While police were at the house Colin Ife allegedly carried out an “attempted resurrection” by chanting and praying for Mr. Ife.
All seven of Kennedy Ife’s family members were accused of manslaughter, false imprisonment, and causing or allowing the death of a vulnerable adult. A post-mortem examination revealed over 60 wounds including a possible bite on Kennedy Ife’s body, and his father, Kenneth Ife, along with four of his brothers, sustained injuries as well.

The BBC reported
Kenneth Ife told jurors he ordered his sons to take shifts and use "overwhelming force" but denied that an "association with cults, occults and secret societies" played any part in the death.
After a four day jury deliberation
, all seven family members were cleared of charges on March 14, 2019.

Dead Animals in the Walls
When the Bretzuis family decided to insulate their home in Auburn, Pennsylvania in 2015, they discovered that it had already been—with scores of dead animal carcasses.
As Fox reported
The dead animals were wrapped in newspapers from the 1930s and 40s and were among half-used spices, and other items.
After removing the items they sent hundreds of artifacts and carcasses to an expert in Kutztown.
The expert attributed the rotting animals in their walls to Pow-wow or Dutch magic, a ritual originating in the culture of the Pennsylvania Dutch to treat ailments and gain physical and spiritual protection. The Pennsylvania Dutch were a group of German-speaking settlers to Pennsylvania in the 1600 and 1700’s, and are often of Lutheran, Mennonite, or Amish faiths.
The Washington Post notes
on the magic:
Many of the spells deal with the care of livestock, finding water, or the treatment of minor ailments, reflecting the conditions and concerns of early American settlers.
But powwow also has within it a tradition of darker spells, and even of such things as conjuring demons.
One notable ritual in their tradition is this hex
to create loyalty in a dog:
To attach a dog to a person, provided nothing else was used before to effect it: Try to draw some of your blood, and let the dog eat it along with his food, and he will stay with you.
The mold found on the rotting carcasses in the Bretzuis home has caused illness among the family members, and they say that the odor hasn’t gone away.

Florida Devil Worshipping
Friends noticed that Danielle Harkins, a 35-year-old schoolteacher near St. Petersburg, Florida, started acting strangely in June of 2012, developing an interest in demonic rituals.
Soon after, she was arrested for abuse of seven of her former students, as the Tampa Bay Times reported
Danielle Harkins told the kids they needed to rid their bodies of demons as the group gathered before dusk Saturday around a small fire near the St. Petersburg Pier. They should cut their skin to let the evil spirits out, police said she told the children. Then, they needed to burn the wounds to ensure that those spirits would not return.
When Harkins held a lighter to one teen's hand, wind blew the flame out, police said. That prompted her to douse his hand in perfume before setting it on fire. The boy suffered second-degree burns, police said.
Another teen was cut on the neck with a broken bottle, police said. Harkins used a flame to heat a small key, which she then used to cauterize the wound.
The police were notified because a friend of one of the students who participated in the ritual raised alarms. However none of the students themselves told their parents about the event or would comment following the arrest of Harkins for aggravated battery and child abuse.
Investigators said they've spoken to Harkins, but she didn't spell out what type of religion would require such drastic measures.
"She hasn't informed us exactly what she was trying to accomplish with this," Puetz [of the St. Petersburg Police Department] said.
The Death of Elisa Lam
Elisa Lam was last seen on January 31, 2013 in the lobby of the Cecil Hotel in downtown Los Angeles. She was vacationing through the West Coast, documenting the trip on her blog, and checking in with her parents every day. On January 31 those calls stopped. Lam had vanished. Soon the police were involved and her parents arrived to help with the search.
They had nothing. That February, LAPD released elevator surveillance footage of Lam before her disappearance. The footage shows Lam behaving strangely in the elevator, appearing to talk with invisible people, peering around the corner of the door, crouching in the corner, and opening and closing the door. But what exactly is going on in this video raises more questions than answers. Theories range from psychotic episodes, to demonic possession, to unknown assailants just out of the camera's view:

Around that time, hotel guests started reported weird things happening with the Cecil Hotel water supply. As CNN reports
Advertisement - Continue Reading Below
"The shower was awful," said Sabina Baugh, who spent eight days there during the investigation. "When you turned the tap on, the water was coming black first for two seconds and then it was going back to normal."The tap water "tasted horrible," Baugh said. "It had a very funny, sweety, disgusting taste. It's a very strange taste. I can barely describe it."But for a week, they never complained. "We never thought anything of it," she said. "We thought it was just the way it was here."
On the morning of February 19, a hotel employee climbed to the roof and used a ladder to investigate the hotel's water storage tanks. That's where authorities found the decomposing, naked body of Lam, whose personal items were found nearby. After an autopsy, her death was labeled accidental. NBC Los Angeles reported at the time
about the strange circumstances in the hotel's past:
The tank has a metal latch that can be opened, but authorities said access to the roof is secured with an alarm and lock.The single-room-occupancy hotel has an unusual history. "Night Stalker" Richard Ramirez, who was found guilty of 14 slayings in the 1980s, lived on the 14th floor for several months in 1985. And international serial killer Jack Unterweger is suspected of murdering three prostitutes during the time he lived there in 1991. He killed himself in jail in 1994.In 1962, a female occupant jumped out of one the hotel's windows, killing herself and a pedestrian on whom she landed.
In February 2021, a Netflix doc
called Crime Scene: The Vanishing at the Cecil Hotel
explored Elisa's tragic case and the history of the "cursed" Cecil Hotel
An Exorcism in Indianapolis
Last year, the Indianapolis Star published a lengthy report
on a family terrorized by three children allegedly possessed by demons. The account of Latoya Ammons and her family tells disturbing stories of children climbing up the walls, getting thrown across rooms, and children threatening doctors in deep unnatural voices. It would seem like something straight out of a movie–a work of fantasy, except all of these accounts were more or less corroborated with "nearly 800 pages of official records obtained by the Indianapolis Star and recounted in more than a dozen interviews with police, DCS personnel, psychologists, family members and a Catholic priest."
One of the more chilling sections of the report includes a segment about the possessed 9-year-old:
According to Washington's original DCS report—an account corroborated by Walker, the nurse—the 9-year-old had a "weird grin" and walked backward up a wall to the ceiling. He then flipped over Campbell, landing on his feet. He never let go of his grandmother's hand.
Another segment of the piece reads:
The 12-year-old would later tell mental health professionals that she sometimes felt as if she were being choked and held down so she couldn't speak or move. She said she heard a voice say she'd never see her family again and wouldn't live another 20 minutes.

In September of 2014, a Utah teen returned to his home to find his parents and three siblings dead. "In a notebook, a 'to-do list' had been scribbled on the pages ... The list looked as if the parents were readying to go on vacation—items such as 'feed the pets' and 'find someone to watch after the house' were written," The Salt Lake Tribune reported
. It appeared to be murder-suicide, but there was no suicide note, no prior indication that they would do this, no explanation. Police could not figure out why two parents would kill themselves and three of their four children.
For a year, no one knew exactly what happened to the family, or what would drive the parents to do something so unthinkable. In January, police released more chilling details in the case. According to accounts from family members and an investigation by police, the parents were driven by a belief that the apocalypse was coming and an obsession with a convicted killer. As the Washington Post reported
Friends and family told police that the parents were worried about the "evil in the world" and wanted to escape a "pending apocalypse." But most assumed they just wanted to move somewhere "off the grid." Investigators also found letters written by Kristi Strack to one of the state's most infamous convicted killers, Dan Lafferty, who was convicted in the 1984 fatal stabbing of his sister-in-law and her 1-year-old daughter. According to trial testimony, he killed the victims at the order of his brother, Ron Lafferty, who claimed to have had a revelation from God. The story became a book called "Under the Banner of Heaven."Police said Kristi Strack became friends with Dan Lafferty, and she and her husband even visited him in prison.
The Phone Stalker
In 2007, ABC news documented
a series of cell phone calls to families with terrifyingly specific death threats. The unidentified callers knew exactly what families were doing and what they were wearing.
The families say the calls come in at all hours of the night, threatening to kill their children, their pets and grandparents. Voice mails arrive, playing recordings of their private conversations, including one with a local police detective.The caller knows, the families said, what they're wearing and what they're doing. And after months of investigating, police seem powerless to stop them.
This went on with the Kuykenall family for months, who reported a caller with a scratchy voice threatening to slit their throats.
When the Fircrest, Wash., police tried to find the culprit, the calls were traced back to the Kuykendalls' own phones -- even when they were turned off.It got worse. The Kuykendalls and two other Fircrest families told ABC News that they believe the callers are using their cell phones to spy on them. They say the hackers know their every move: where they are, what they're doing and what they're wearing. The callers have recorded private conversations, the families and police said, including a meeting with a local detective.
After moving into their $1.3 million dream home, a New Jersey family started receiving creepy death threats from someone who identified themselves as "The Watcher." As CBS News reported
earlier this year:

Since moving in, the owners said they have received numerous letters from the mysterious person. "The Watcher" claimed the home "has been the subject of my family for decades," and "I have been put in charge of watching and waiting for its second coming," Castro reported.The new owners have several children, and other letters asked, "Have they found out what's in the walls yet?" and "I am pleased to know your names now, and the name of the young blood you have brought to me."
The family was forced to flee from their home and later filed a lawsuit against the previous owners.
Issei the Cannibal
In 1974, 24-year-old Wako University student Issei Sagawa allegedly followed a German woman to her home in Tokyo, Japan, broke into her apartment while she was sleeping, and attempted to cut a piece of flesh off her body to consume. When she awoke, she reportedly fought him and he was later captured by the police. According to a 2012 Vice
documentary that covered Issei's bizarre story, he was mistakenly charged with attempted rape and his wealthy father paid the victim a settlement outside of court to have the charges dropped.
Seven years later, in 1981, he allegedly committed a murder in France—shooting and eating a fellow University student, Renée Hartevelt. Issei creepily documented the entire experience with photographs and he was captured by authorities once again while attempting to dump the rest of her body in the Bois de Boulogne lake. He was deported back to Japan and committed to a mental institution. For reason unknown, his psychologists in Japan declared that he was sane. Furthermore, a legal technicality involving the French government refusing to turn over the documents from his case meant that his murder charges were dropped completely. He checked himself out of the mental hospital and has reportedly been walking the streets as a free man ever since. Issei has even become a controversial celebrity, writing over 20 books. According to Japan Today
, he most recently fantasized about an unnamed TV actress, saying: "I'll catch a glimpse of her thigh and think, 'That sure looks tasty.' But I don't feel like I actually want to eat it. As I accomplished the act of cannibalism once, there's no meaning to maintaining the desire for it anymore. In my book, I wrote that it [human flesh] was tasty, but that was not really true; I'd much rather eat Matsuzaka (Kobe) beef. But because I'd desired to consume human flesh for so long, I'd managed to convince myself that it would necessarily be delicious."
Issei Sagawa was also referenced in the Rolling Stones song "Too Much Blood," with the lyrics reading: "And when he ate her he took her bones/To the Bois de Boulogne." He is currently
73 years old and continues to live in Kawaski City, Japan. To this day, no one knows why France did not allow Japan to give him a trial.

2023.05.28 03:05 Practical_Donkey4820 Dream Router Gen2: Expectations and Suggestions
I'm a user of the UniFi Dream Router and overall, I've been pleased with the quality and reliability of Ubiquiti products. However, I have a concern regarding the hardware limitations of the current Dream Router model and would like to discuss potential upgrades we could hope for in the next generation.
One of the main areas where I feel the Dream Router falls short is its speed capabilities. With Internet and LAN speeds only reaching up to 700-800 Mbps, it leaves a lot to be desired.
In addition, the dual-core A53 at 1.35 GHz processor seems somewhat underpowered for a router that's tasked with managing access points, surveillance cameras, and a smart firewall. It's impressive what it can accomplish given its specifications, but it could be so much more.
For the next generation, I would love to see some significant hardware upgrades. A processor with at least 4 cores at the level of the Cortex-A76 would make a big difference in managing complex network tasks. Similarly, increasing the WAN/LAN to 2.5 Gbps or even dual 10 Gbps would make this a true powerhouse for home or small business networks.
Furthermore, with new devices like the MacBook M2 Pro supporting WiFi 6E, it would be ideal if the new Dream Router could also support this latest WiFi standard. This would allow us to take full advantage of the potential 2 Gbps wireless speeds these devices can reach.
I believe these improvements could make the Dream Router an even more formidable player in the networking space. I'd love to hear what the rest of the community thinks about these suggestions and if anyone has heard anything about potential updates to the Dream Router line.

2023.05.28 02:39 ConcernedCatLady1 Wireless capabilities switch on Acer Aspire GX-785-EB13? My computer is telling me that wi-fi is turned off, I can't turn it on.
As the title suggests, I'm having a bit of difficulty with my Acer Aspire GX-785-EB13 gaming computer. Today an issue began where I booted up my computer and I discovered that it insisted my wi-fi was off. I opened the wifi menu, attempted to turn it on. It said on while in the settings menu, but the second I changed menus the lack of connection persisted. The entire time it was still showing issues with internet connection in the bottom right corner. I tried restarting it.
I tried troubleshooting it and the troubleshooter insisted I press a button on the front or side of the computer which I could not find, or use keyboard function keys (ASUS model G01KB) to enable wireless capabilities. I could not find a button or key with a wifi signal or Bluetooth signal around it.
I tried updating my drivers. I tried checking permissions, disabling permission to turn off wi-fi to conserve power, I tried doing a network reset which yielded a restart, but no results.
The advanced troubleshoot report suggested a "Radio switch (HW) was the root issue. Can anyone point me in the direction of where that might be or if this mysterious switch that is wreaking havoc on my connection capabilities might be?
At this point I'm simply copying all of my important university files to a USB stick in preparation of just factory resetting the whole thing to see if that will fix the issue.
Thank you for taking the time to read this, and any advice or suggestion would be most welcome!

2023.05.28 02:35 Aggleclack Can’t find my modem
| || |
I must be losing my marbles. My wifi is stupid slow and I’m finally forced to fork out money to fix it, since I WFH. I live with my grandpa and I’m slowly bringing him into the 21st century. The router has an Ethernet cable going into the wall, he doesn’t even know what a modem is, and I can’t find the other end of the Ethernet cable ANYWHERE. submitted by Aggleclack to NETGEAR [link] [comments]
I’m assuming there’s no chance this router operates as a modem too? The internet tells me this is just a router and there HAS to be a modem somewhere. Do I need to call the WiFi provider at this point?

2023.05.28 02:02 guru_zim Fujifilm gets govt. contract for iPSC cells 5/26
Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived human neurons and astrocytes. (Brand-Name)
- Original Set Aside:
- Product Service Code: 6505 - DRUGS AND BIOLOGICALS
- NAICS Code:
- 325414 - Biological Product (except Diagnostic) Manufacturing
- Place of Performance:Rockville , MD 20850USA
(i) This is a combined synopsis/solicitation for commercial items prepared in accordance with the format in Subpart 12.6 as supplemented with additional information included in this notice. This announcement constitutes the only solicitation; proposals are being requested and a written solicitation will not be issued.
(ii) The solicitation number is 75N95023Q00352 and the solicitation is issued as a request for quotation (RFQ). The anticipated award date is May 31, 2023.
This acquisition is for a commercial item or service and is conducted under the authority of the Federal Acquisition Regulation (FAR) Part 13—Simplified Acquisition Procedures; and FAR Part 12—Acquisition of Commercial Items, and is not expected to exceed the simplified acquisition threshold.
THIS IS A NON-COMPETITIVE (NOTICE OF INTENT) COMBINED SYNOPSIS SOLICITATION TO AWARD A CONTRACT OR PURCHASE ORDER WITHOUT PROVIDING FOR FULL OR OPEN COMPETITION (INCLUDING BRAND-NAME).
The National Institute on Drug Abuse (NIDA), Office of Acquisition (OA), on behalf of the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS), intends to negotiate and award a purchase order without providing for full and open competition (including brand-name) to FUJIFILM CELLULAR DYNAMICS, INC., 465 SCIENCE DR., MADISON, WI 53711, 608-310-5100 for Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived human neurons and astrocytes.
This acquisition is conducted as non-competitive for a commercial item or service and is conducted pursuant to FAR 13.106-1(b)(1).
The rationale for the brand-name justification is based on vendor previous supply of iPSC derived human neurons and astrocytes. NCATS has extensively characterized them in current assay protocol with a robust HTS compatible neuronal spheroid model using iPSC derived neurons (glutamatergic, GABAergic, and dopaminergic) and iPSC derived astrocytes for robust cultures for investigating viral infection.
(iii) The solicitation document and incorporated provisions and clauses are those in effect through Federal Acquisition Circular (FAC) Number 2023-02, with effective date 03/16/2023.
(iv) The associated NAICS code is 325414 Biological Product (except Diagnostic) Manufacturing and the small business size standard is 1,000 employees. This requirement is not set-aside to small business.
(v) The National Institutes of Health (NIH) is the nation’s leading medical research agency and the primary Federal agency whose mission is to seek fundamental knowledge about the nature and behavior of living systems and the application of that knowledge to enhance health, lengthen life, and reduce illness and disability, conducting, supporting and making medical discoveries that improve people’s health and save lives.
NCATS is one of 27 Institutes and Centers at the NIH and its mission is to catalyze the generation of innovative methods and technologies that will enhance the development, testing and implementation of diagnostics and therapeutics across a wide range of human diseases and conditions.
The NCATS DPI plans and conducts collaborative research projects across the preclinical phases of the translational science spectrum, using both internal and contract resources to advance them.
The NCATS DPI ETB’s goal is to uncover new small molecule therapeutics and advance the process of therapeutic development through a model of collaborative research. For each collaboration, external disease experts team with the ETB’s drug discovery teams, who provide access to small molecule screening, medicinal chemistry and informatics expertise.
Moreover, NCATS has become a key partner in the Antiviral Program for Pandemics (APP), a multi-agency initiative that includes National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA), to accelerate antiviral development through early discovery and preclinical development of safe and effective oral antivirals. The initial priority for the APP is to develop treatments for SARS-CoV-2 and other coronaviruses, with the program expanding to address other virus families with pandemic potential. NCATS will apply its proficiency in drug discovery and development and its cutting-edge technologies to fill critical needs of the APP, such as (i) target validation, (ii) high-throughput screening (HTS) for drug starting points, (iii) medicinal chemistry for lead optimization, and (iv) preclinical, investigational new drug (IND)-enabling development
The APP is tasked with identifying and developing antivirals for a variety of viruses of outbreak and pandemic potential, including a number of neurotrophic viruses (e.g. encephalitic bunyavirales viruses, flaviviruses, alphaviruses). NCATS has developed a robust HTS compatible neuronal spheroid model using iPSC derived neurons (glutamatergic, GABAergic, and dopaminergic) and iPSC derived astrocytes for robust cultures for investigating viral infection. NCATS has developed this model specifically using FujiFilm/CDI iPSC derived neurons and astrocytes.
Thus, NCATS DPI ETB requires Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) human cell-derived differentiated cells for high-throughput screening (HTS) for fluorescent imaging plate reader (FLIPR) and functional screening as well as viral infections.
(vi) The Purchase Description (PD) with a description of the products to be acquired is included as an attachment to this Solicitation.
The Early Translation Branch (ETB), under the Division of Preclinical Innovation (DPI), within the National Center for Advancing Translational Sciences (NCATS) seeks to purchase Induced pluripotent stem cell (iPSC) derived human neurons and astrocytes for high-throughput screening (HTS) for fluorescent imaging plate reader (FLIPR) and functional screening as well as viral infections for use in DPI- Antiviral Program for Pandemics (APP) Biology Antiviral Drug Development IDDA DPI (8051491).
(vii) The Government anticipates award of a firm fixed-price purchase order for this acquisition, and delivery shall be within thirty (30) days after receipt of order (ARO), FOB Destination to 9800 Medical Center Drive, Rockville, MD, 20850 between the hours of 8:00 am and 5:00 pm, Eastern Standard Time, Monday through Friday (except on Federal Holidays).

2023.05.28 01:53 i-shit-your-pants Laptop is not Detecting Wireless Networks After Windows 11 Clean Install
Hi, I have a Dell Inspiron 15 3520.
Some background, this laptop has been having some issues since day one. A lot of memory is being used, and it tends to heat up quite a bit at times even when it doesn't have a large workload. I've tried doing a normal factory reset(multiple times), but Dell preinstalls a ton of bloatware that I feel just bogs down my entire system, so I decided to just do do a complete fresh Windows install. No Wi-Fi issues up until the point of the *clean* reset.
So, I decided to do a fresh install. But, there was a problem. When I was in windows setup, it was unable to detect any partitions to install Windows onto. Literally nothing. I did some research and found out the issue was due to me having a NVMe SSD and having the BIOS SATA/NVMe Operation option set to RAID On. So, I turned RAID off and switched to AHCI/NVMe mode. This helped Windows Setup detect my partitions and I was able to go through with the install.
In the OOBE, my computer was unable to detect any networks(first sign something was wrong). So I had to bypass it. As soon as I had logged in and opened my desktop, I immediately noticed there was no Wi-Fi option. I ran some troubleshooters, to no avail. "Windows could not find a driver to your network adapter"
Also, I have bootable Linux flash drive I tested out and there are no Wi-Fi issues whatsoever...
I attached some images of the issues in my comment below.
Any help appreciated, thanks a lot!

2023.05.28 01:48 Haunted-Universe A New Work : An Update From Steven Norquist
As many of you are aware, I have been answering questions on enlightenment and my work in your subreddit here:
The nature of your questions have prodded me to finally make the decision to announce my short second and final work on Awakening; it is finally time to release this.
This second and final work was designed as a companion work to "Haunted." It deals directly with many of the questions and feelings that have been expressed in your forum.
I don't really write about Awakening anymore. I felt that "Haunted" pretty much said all that could be said.
But after a few years I was inspired to write some short works. There was still something that wanted to be said. The result were three short individual works written at different times. Each a poetic discourse in the tradition of "Haunted."
Each is independent of each other, they stand on their own. They are short, but powerful works. Thomas Ligotti once again partnered with me as editor for one of these works, "The Six Stages of Emptiness."
Each work is designed to stimulate that deeper part beyond mind, the artistic and creative part that allows leaps of intuition that can allow one to "feel/know" the experience of Enlightenment.
As with "Haunted" these three short collected works are refined and to the point and that is why I titled this collection "The Heart of Emptiness."
In case people do not understand what a poetic discourse is or why I write in this style, here is a brief definition: Poetic discourse is literary communication in which special intensity is given to the expression of feelings, thoughts, ideas or description of places or events by the use of distinctive diction (sometimes involving rhyme), rhythm (sometimes involving metrical composition), style and imagination.
I am offering "The Heart of Emptiness" for $10. It is only in PDF format. I don't have a publisher anymore or book artist. But a work of this type does not need to be fancy, that is not the point of it. And to a person that knows, once they read it, I am sure $10 will seem like a bargain to them.
Again, I am no longer writing. This is the last work I will likely ever be offering.
So anyone who wants a copy can send a paypal payment of $10 to: [[email protected]
.) They should indicate in the payment that it is for "The Heart of Emptiness" and include their email address so I can email them the book.
I’ll continue to monitor your questions in my previous post as indicated.
Feel free to ask questions about “The Heart of Emptiness” here in this post.

2023.05.28 00:59 Aceolus PC Boots To Black Screen With Blinking Cursor
So I ran into a problem where last night I shutdown my pc as normal but this morning I went to turn it on and it booted to a black screen with no cursor. I tried unplugging all the accessories and then rebooting and I got the same issue. I then tried reseating the graphics card and made sure that all the cables are in the correct spot and are tight and I still get a black screen with a blinking cursor. Figuring that it's an OS problem, I went ahead and did a fresh install of Windows 10.
Things started working just fine but after a few reboots, the computer did the same error with a black screen and a blinking cursor. At this point I figured that it's definitely a problem with Windows 10 so I go ahead and do a fresh install of Windows 11. Things were working normally but after a few reboots, the same error happens again, it boots to a black screen with a blinking cursor.
At this point I figure that it's the hardrive so I go and do a fresh install on a new harddrive and get the same error. I'm fresh out of ideas. Out of all the years on Windows 10 I've never had this issue so I'm clueless to what the cause could be. Any ideas? I have attached a picture below of the screen that I get https://imgur.com/gallery/W5n8dyT My PC Specs

2023.05.28 00:25 _cdlc_ S05E19 - Elevator Love Letter
I was so disappointed at Derek when I saw him setting up the bedroom with rose petals and candles to propose to Mer, it was such a cliche and cursi way of doing it, so anti-Mer so unworthy of the build up of their relationship. I said to myself, this can’t be the way he goes and propose to her, even after what Cristina told him REALLY? He went more for the Chief’s suggestion that the one from Mer’s person?!
But boy did he redeem himself. His proposal was not corny was not cursi was not ordinary wasn’t a cliche or a classic guy on one-knee thing, it was unorthodox unique personal intimate and extremely romantic in a way that belong to them, in a way that pointed the remarks of their relationship from surgery, their passion. (I’m a sucker for good romance) One of his top 5 McDreamy moments in my book. https://youtu.be/kLl9CefDNgE DEREK Hey. Come on in. This is the CT of Katie Bryce, 16 y/o female subarachnoid aneurysm. It was the first surgery we ever scrubbed in together, our first save. Right here is a cerebral cyst. Tough save, but we did it. I kissed you in the stairwell after the surgery. And this right here is where Dr. Bailey kicked you out of the surgery because she caught us in your driveway in my car. And right here ... This is a 7-Hour craniotomy, and you held the clamp the entire time, never flinched. That's when I knew you were gonna be an incredible surgeon. And right here, this is when I supervised you drilling a burr hole for the very first time. I was watching more than I was watching the drilling. ’cause I knew I had fallen in love with you. Beth Monroe, Who made our clinical trial a success by surviving. You talked me into putting her under. That's when I knew I needed you. And this is today. Post-Op head CT of Izzie Stevens. You see that? Tumor free ... Because of you. You got me into the OR. If there's a crisis, you don't freeze. You move forward. You get the rest of us to move forward, Because you've seen worse, you've survived worse. And you know we'll survive, too. You say you're all ... dark and twisty, but that's not a flaw, it's a strength. It makes you who you are. I'm not gonna get down on one knee. I'm not gonna ask a question. I LOVE YOU, MEREDITH GREY. And I want to spend the rest of my life with you.

2023.05.27 23:52 Chris_Paul_3 My cellular signal is completely dead on my I phone 12 pro max
Hello everyone, I have an I phone 12 pro max 128 GB and I bought it 2 years ago unlocked from the Apple Store. The phone was great but in the past month I have been experiencing bad cellular signal issue. It was going on and off but in the past 2 weeks it has gotten really bad. My cellular signal is completely dead to the point where I can’t call or text anyone. The only way I can call or text people is when I turn on the Wi-Fi calling at my house. I have Verizon as my carrier and they told me it’s an Apple issue since many people with I phones 12/13 have been coming to them complaining about their signal being dead after Apple had their software update. That makes sense to me because I do recall my signal starting to act up after I had updated my Apple software last month. Idk what else to do, I have tried every trick in the book. I toggled the airplane mode on and off. I reset my network settings and I even did a complete factory reset on my phone through the I tunes on my laptop. Nothing works. I occasionally get a low signal for a min or 2 but then it goes completely dead for hours. I called Apple support and they basically had me reset my phone and that didn’t work. I don’t have Apple care and my warranty expired a year ago. Does anyone know what else I can do ?

2023.05.27 23:43 gomichan I contacted his work and I don't regret it
For some context, we had an amazing but long distance relationship up until last summer when something traumatic happened at his work and he was just never the same. He was always a workaholic, and admitted in the past he would throw himself into work to distract himself, but he was working on it. We were communicating less and less, and since we're long distance, there was really nothing I could do but hope he would respond.
Christmas was the last I heard from him. I had mentioned taking a break because at that point, we hadn't spoken on the phone (only texted) for two months, he had forgotten my birthday and anniversary, and he was very apologetic but it was clear he was just throwing himself into work again. He admitted to frequently turning off his phone and just burying his head in the sand instead of confronting what he was doing.
I tried to reach out in various ways over the past 5 months, and sometimes he'd read my messages, but never reply. Recently, he's started deleting me or blocking me on socials. I've been losing my mind with why. I tried contacting people he knew, I've tried everything. Trust me.
Well it finally worked. I found the email of his boss of this organization he volunteers for (it's not his main job, just one of them). I thought of her because they are very close, and she knows who I am. I asked her to keep the email between us and just wondering how he was, but obviously it didn't and this morning I got the first message from him in 5 months.
"I am alive I've just come off a lot of my socials but please I get you're concerned but my work is my work and I don't mix it with my personal life, please respect that."
I know what this looks like - I look insane contacting his work like that. I would NEVER do that if I wasn't desperate and didn't know that he was close to his boss and she knew of our situation. But I was filled with so much anger at his response.
For one, he didn't just come off a lot of his socials, he disappeared off the face of the earth for 5 months without a word to anyone and no way to contact him. I was looking up obituaries to see if he was dead. I also know his snapscore was going up all while he was ignoring me, and his instagram profile picture was taken within the last 5 months which he has me blocked on. That's not coming off socials, that's coming off me.
Next, "I get you're concerned," but do you? How many nights I stayed up screaming because my boyfriend of a year and a half, who I was making marriage plans with, planning my future around, was acting like I didn't exist? How I've been on and off drugs, pills, and am now entering a rehab program because of?
I find it extremely ironic that the ONE thing that got him to reply was work... Of course it was. Work is his one true love, after all. I can scream and cry and break down, but only when his work is threatened does he care. He disrespected me for years taking late night calls, picking up shifts when he promised to spend time with me, then being too tired when he got home to even text me. Date nights that ended early because his boss had to vent, and I'd just sit there quietly waiting for him to finish, just for him to hang up hours later saying he was exhausted and wanted to sleep. He says he doesn't mix his personal and work life, but that's not true at all. It's all he ever did. And I'm so angry that he dare say that to me knowing that it was his work that ruined us.
Five months of the worst hell I've ever experienced. And he asks for me to respect his work. His work that ruined his life and mine. I feel sick.

It was going on and off but in the past 2 weeks it has gotten really bad. My cellular signal is completely dead to the point where I can’t call or text anyone. The only way I can call or text people is when I turn on the Wi-Fi calling at my house.
I have Verizon as my carrier and they told me it’s an Apple issue since many people with I phones 12/13 have been coming to them complaining about their signal being dead after Apple had their software update. That makes sense to me because I do recall my signal starting to act up after I had updated my Apple software last month.
Idk what else to do, I have tried every trick in the book. I toggled the airplane mode on and off. I reset my network settings and I even did a complete factory reset on my phone through the I tunes on my laptop. Nothing works. I occasionally get a low signal for a min or 2 but then it goes completely dead for hours.
I called Apple support and they basically had me reset my phone and that didn’t work. I don’t have Apple care and my warranty expired a year ago. Does anyone know what else I can do ?
