2023.06.08 13:14 K4U35D Should i sign a contract for this shady restaurant? (Advice)

Hello, im an 18 year old who lives in Amsterdam and have started working my first job recently in this restaurant, but have realised there are a lot of shady stuff going on and don’t know if i should keep working there, so i would like to ask for some advice given the situation. I have worked a total of 11 days between 2.75 weeks with the promise of a contract soon but i have heard very weird and shady things from coworkers and have had already some shady experiences im not quite sure of. The first day i came in was originally scheluded just to talk with the chef (whom we share a common friend with and thats how i got to know about this job) bit and when the interest was mutual he asked me to stay for a while to see how things were and stayed to see how it would go, two hours into it I finally sat down with the owner and shared the details, i told him i could only do 3 days and that i was dutch even though i dont know dutch and i could work for at least 6 months guaranteed, we shared more info like pay (8€/hr) & more and after he asked me if i could stay for the night shift and i wanting to make a good impression agreed.
A few days later i Keep being asked to work and work a few days without any contract being discussed, thats when i met one of my coworkers and we started discussing about the work and everything about it, he eventually told me that he first started illegally as he didn’t have a visa yet and later in 2 months he got it arranged and got a visa and signed a contract with the work place, but after he told me something concerning, that the boss still owed him around 3.5k euros from that time and that was the only thing keeping him there, basically being held hostage until he received that money, on top he also expressed that he was being overworked and that it wasn’t the best environment to be working in, he also told me that he is looking into changing jobs but that at the moment because of that money he cant and is afraid that if he leaves he wont be paid because it was from those 2 months.
I was also told many of the staff wasn’t on contracts either and thats when i started having my doubts and be worried about if i will be paid for my time there without the contract.
Apart from this, i have heard also minimal things from other coworkers such as overtime issues, tips issues, no work clothing or non slip shoes provided or asked even in the wet environment of dishwashing and kitchen but since they weren’t legal they couldn’t do anything about it.
Ongoing, from my side I’ve had a few small inconveniences such as 1- the boss changing my schedule the night before causing me to come in late even though i wasnt warned of the changes made 2- there was one day i asked to be free because of a family event but the boss scheduled me into that day as if i was being tested how far i could be pushed (i talked with him and in the end i could change it but i was so clear the first time it really felt opposing) 3- the talks of contract only recently came up and i wonder why it took that long 4- i was being asked every week to work more than we had planned and one week i was asked to do 5 days but i declined.
Now i feel like im at an impasse, is this just bad communication? Is it shadiness from the boss?
I am willing to give it a chance once i see the contract but im not sure i can trust this and i believe i need to be careful to what the contract offered will contain, im inexperienced with this and don’t know how it will go so im just seeking advice. Is there anything i should be careful of?

2023.06.08 13:14 AcrobaticAnalyst7292 Is it fair to ask my partner to contribute to the cost of my visa in a country I don't wish to stay in?

4 years ago I met someone special and I made the decision to follow him to New Zealand from Europe, driven by the desire to build a relationship. However, my journey in this new country has been accompanied by numerous challenges, particularly in finding suitable employment. While I embarked on this adventure with a sense of excitement, my heart still yearns for Europe.
My boyfriend, who is also not a native of New Zealand, shares my passion for travel and was open to the idea of moving to Europe together. However, he encountered obstacles in securing suitable employment due to visa restrictions and lower salaries. Despite our shared aspirations to relocate, our plans to move to Europe were repeatedly delayed by him as he struggled to find a well-paying job. Presently, he has established stability in his career in New Zealand and has decided to remain until he attains citizenship. We mutually agreed that after he gets the citizenship that he expects in a year, we would proceed with the move irrespective of his job situation.
Unfortunately, we recently discovered that the process of acquiring citizenship will take an additional period of 8-21 months. In order for me to stay in New Zealand, it is necessary for me to obtain a new visa, which incurs a cost of $3000. In light of this, I have requested my boyfriend to contribute half of the visa expenses, as it is primarily for our shared benefit and will enable us to remain together until he accomplishes his goal. Throughout our relationship, we have diligently divided expenses equally, even though he earns substantially more (2-3x more) than I do. In the past six months, I experienced a loss of employment and have been diligently seeking full-time opportunities while working part-time. Even during this challenging phase, I have consistently fulfilled my financial obligations, contributing my fair share for all our expenses.
The question of fairness emerges in this situation. Considering that my intention is not to stay in New Zealand long-term and the visa primarily serves his interests, it seems reasonable to expect him to contribute to the cost. Throughout the course of our relationship, I have never sought financial assistance, and we have maintained a balanced and equitable arrangement. Given the circumstances, I find myself uncertain about the best course of action. Although I deeply care for him, his reluctance to share the visa expenses implies a lack of willingness to support my stay and casts doubt on the future of our relationship. He also believes that I am seeking financial support from him, despite the fact that I have never asked for money and have always taken care of my own financial responsibilities.

2023.06.08 13:13 Internal-Vast-2724 Porn and masturbation addiction

Hello there, I am a 15 year old girl about to enter highschool. I have struggled with porn and masturbation addiction for over 4 years now. Honestly speaking, I am a Muslim. It is absolutely forbidden to do any of this in Islam. Apart from that, this problem could have a very bad impact on me in my country because of our culture. For example, to enter certain colleges I have to undergo a virginity test, and if I were not a virgin on my wedding night, my life would most certainly be over. I do know that this has nothing to do with Islam, it is just sick culture. What do I do? I have the option to tell my mother everything. She's very educated and is somewhat understanding. But I'm scared of her reaction. I am falling into a depressive episode and I'm scared I will hurt myself. Could someone please tell me what to do?

2023.06.08 13:13 Scroberts96 Canadian Tax Deductions / Savings & Investment Accounts

Hi all - Irish outsider here looking at the possibility of moving to Canada within the next year and just doing some further research. I've been reviewing various tax calculators / government websites to get an idea of the federal / provincial tax rates (which I now have).
I'm wondering does anyone on here know what the main deductions one would expect from their annual salary? From what I can see, the main ones (outside of federal / provincial tax):
- Employment Insurance @ 1.63% up to a cap of $1,002.45 per annum
- Canadian Pension Plan @ 5.95% (matched by employer then as well and seems to be capped at $3,754 between both the employee and employer)
Is there anything else outside of Federal / Provincial taxes and the above two?
Was also just wondering what types of pension / savings & investment accounts are typically to the go to? From my research, it seems the following are the main ones:
- RRSP (seems to be the equivalent of an Irish defined contribution scheme), whereby you can contribute up to 18% of your earned income up to a limit of $30,780 and effectively not pay federal / provincial tax on these contributions and they can grow tax free.
- TFSA (where you pay tax now but then the investments grow tax free and can be redeemed tax free - similar to a Roth IRA in the USA, up to an annual limit of $6,500 in contributions.
Anything else saved / invested after these two goes into a standard savings / brokerage account then after taxes and interest / dividends / realised gains & loss etc.. would all be taxable as per usual.
Have a missed any other obvious saving / wealth creation methods here or does this seem to be the main account types?
Any advice anyone has would be much appreciated! Still just trying to get my head around this. Thank you in advance!

2023.06.08 13:12 landa874 About tactics and player qualitie

I haven't been playing this game for very long, and mainly bought it for its career mode. While i was a little disappointed with player cm, manager cm has sime potential. The only problem im facing is that my transfers and tactics are too bad? The purpose of this thread is to just kind of ask what matters when doing tactics and what to look for in transfers, and what im doing wrong right now. Sim seasons only btw.
The last cm i did was with Como in Italy with mostly a 3-4-3. Now my idea was first to try to play from the back with fast wingers, target man striker and midfielders with good passing, especially long balls. So i signed some great passing defenders (that were also fast, read that that was important with back three), and great passing midfielders, 3 with long passing traits. Changed tactics to do long passes and changed roles to suit the team. Depth was low so that defence would be safer and wingers could run into more space.
That did not work at all, 3 seasons in serie b with great great players, signed from much better leagues. At some point i started googling good tactics for my formations, did half a year with each formation and tactic setting, until it just wasnt good enough. The players never got better and all the stats looked dire, so i sold and got new ones, but still everything just didnt look good. I changed tactics every year until i gave up and got like 5 regens into my team that all went up to at least 90 rating. Still i was barely getting into the conference league. I had gvardiol in my backline signed from liverpool just to languish midtable, both fast and a good passer should be perfect right? Well no. None of my strikers except cutrone which i started with was ever good. one of my wingers was decent in the last season, when he was 95 rated.
This is kind of just destroying the fun i wanted to have in the game. I want to understand the tactics better so that i can do "miracle runs" or whatever with worse teams, but that never happens. I always have to sign stupid good players to even be contenders for going up a league, and its not realistic. If anyone can give some advice it would help.
Also kind of dont want to use third party things because i feel like thats kind of cheating

2023.06.08 13:12 kree88 Please help - I'm scared of having sex again

Long post ahead.
I 30F have been in a committed relationship with my fiance 30M for the last 4 years. He was my first and only sexual experience as I was a late bloomer when it came to sex. However, I've always known myself to have a high sex drive. I am almost always horny, and I think about passionate, adventurous sex A LOT.
When we first started dating (think the first year or so) and having sex, it started out feeling great. I've never orgasmed with vaginal penetration, but he always made sure I came first via clit stimulation. Things were a bit vanilla, but I was happy with taking it slow as I didn't want to scare him off with how much I wanted to do and explore. We had lots of time.
Things were good until one day when we had penetrative PIV sex that scared the living crap out of me. It might sound a bit melodramatic, but i literally started crying mid sex because it scares me so much. When he was going to town that one time, something felt different. He was hitting a spot that didnt feel the same as all the previous times we had sex. It just felt off, like something was building and I was losing control of my body. It didn't really hurt, it made me feel really "full"? When he kept going, it just felt like I was about to burst and I couldn't stop it. It was very overwhelming emotionally and physically, so I ended up crying (think bawling, not a pretty cry) and begging him to stop. He stopped immediately as he didn't know what was going on. That feeling took about an hour or so to completely go away, but since then sex is just not the same. I started being more and more scared of having sex because of that overwhelming feeling, and it came back a few times after in different instances of us trying to have sex. I just couldn't get past how scary it felt, and eventually we just stopped having sex altogether. I feel so frustrated because everything else in our relationship is great, except for the sex. We've been together for almost 4 years, but we've been sexless for almost 2. I want him, I want sex, but I'm scared of how sex makes me feel. I feel like something is wrong with me.
My fiance tells me that he wants me and he is sexually very attracted to me, but he doesn't want to hurt me (I think I scared the crap out of him too that time I cried so much).
I just want to add because I feel like this might be brought up. I've always had issues with wanting to pee during PIV but I've always managed to stop and control my body, or asked him to slow down/stop. I have orgasmed and continue to be able to do so from clit stimulation which feels very good and familiar. Obviously I have heard that the peeing sensation is possibly related to a vaginal orgasm but I've just never been able to achieve that? And peeing sensation doesn't feel like the orgasm I felt from stimulating the clit at all. In those last few times I has sex with my partner, it felt like the peeing sensation would build with PIV, but if I don't stop him then eventually it turns into that scary, overwhelming feeling again and I just start crying because I don't know what else to do.
I'd also like to add that I did see my doctor after all of this and thought maybe I might have gynecological issues or bladder incontinence or something. Nothing came of it and I'm healthy as a horse.
Reddit, I don't know what to do anymore. Please help me by sharing any personal thoughts or advice. Thank you for reading!

2023.06.08 13:12 thedarkbrowndeer About Ilustro Fest

Hello! I came across an ad for this year's Ilustro Fest on Instagram, it's being held in Belgrade but open to worldwide submissions, this is important as I'm not in Serbia. It goes on from 7th June to 14th but the submissions are open until 9th of June.
I have some stuff I plan to submit, however, I never did this before, I'm reading their info page and there are some points which I need other people's opinions on:
Participation in the festival is free of charge. Instead, each author is obliged to send at least one personal, unpublished work as a donation to the festival, which will be part of the festival's online shop until the next year, if the author pass the selection process, for the further development of the Festival.
The organizer reserves the right to present the exhibition in other cities and cultural centers as well as on the festival's online platform.
By sending the works, the authors agree and give the right that the festival can use the works for the purpose of promoting the festival (exhibitions, various promotional materials) without compensation.
It seems like they pick a piece from each artist that passes and the piece is sold on their online shop for a year without no compensation for the artist, this felt a bit weird. There is also an art market that you can apply for selling in which seems to be free of charge but since I'm not in Serbia this doesn't work for me. Does anyone have any experience with this festival?

"Three cases remained sealed with no signs of tampering with the contents, while one case was open but contained a full set of ammunition," said Ciarka.

2023.06.08 13:11 deliriations I'm allergic to sunlight.

There are allergies that I bet none of you have heard of. A few seem common, like nuts or eggs, but other allergies, like water, you wouldn't expect to be possible. Right? And even if it were, how would anyone survive with that type of curse? It is real, and it's called aquagenic urticaria. There are only 50 medical instances known to science, and most of the people who have it have lived longer than you would expect. I'm not one of these people, but I have a condition far rarer. It is called Solisphobia pronusirrita. It is a condition, and I am the only documented human to have ever had it. When I was born, my mum told me that the moment the doctors put me in the nursery, the sun rays from the window hit my skin, and I immediately started to bawl my eyes out like I was about to die. While I was screaming, the doctors came and saw that my skin, where the sun had been exposed, was turning a light purple and grey. Immediately, they took me into a more closed area, and they diagnosed me with Xeroderma pigmentosum. It is a condition where you are irritated by sunlight. Not like what I have, more like you get sunburnt really easily. After around 3 days in the nursery, I was taken home with my loving mum and dad. As a baby, they said I was more silent than they expected. I only made noise when I needed something or had to go to the bathroom. They recounted my only experience as a baby when I cried, and that was when I accidentally went outside because they forgot to shut the baby gate. When I made it outside, they said they heard the most high-pitched, ear-piercing wail they had ever heard. When they rushed out, they found me on the ground covered in splotches of purple and grey. They immediately dialled 911, and I was rushed to the emergency room. When the doctor saw what had happened, he started to explain the severity of my condition. He said that with Xeroderma pigmentosum, some babies experience intense sunburns, and I was likely going to have to be treated with mild burns. When they took a closer look, however, they noticed I had no burns; my skin colour had just been altered. Obviously, this was nothing like they had seen before, so they started to document my state in case I had a new, undiscovered condition that needed to be documented for studies later on. When I was being treated, the doctor noted that the disease was hereditary. However, my dad quickly pointed out that nobody in either of our families had this condition. The doctor was obviously stunned and thought I had a new condition. After 3 days of treatment, they diagnosed me. I was allergic to sunlight. My parents immediately fought against this, stating that it simply could not be possible. They thought allergies were only related to pets or food. But the doctor calmed them down and explained to them what it was. "Your son does not have Xeroderma pigmentosum; it's purely hereditary, and he isn't showing any symptoms." What we have decided on is that your sun has an extremely severe skin sensitivity to sunlight. Xeroderma pigmentosum doesn't just apply to the sun; very bright and powerful light can have the same effect, even in cold environments. My parents were devastated. They had to take a break and leave the room while more tests were held to see what was truly wrong with me. Finally, after a full week, I was back home with mum and dad. I was around 2 by this point and had started to walk. The next three years were very uneventful for me. The only notable thing that happened was that my dog died. We held a small funeral for him and buried him in the backyard. I was 4 at the time and can vaguely remember choking on my tears as I sat inside and heard the shovel scraping against the soil and rock that became my best friend's tomb. I didn't go to preschool. My parents decided it was too dangerous, and the only preschool I could go to was around a 15-minute drive away. The school was much closer, however, so my parents thought it'd be safer and decided to let me go. They told me that they had a heavy argument over homeschooling but eventually agreed that if any incidents happened, I would be taken out of school and put in a damp room to be taught my ABCs by my own mum. On my first day, I sat in the room. My condition was only known by the teachers, and they made sure I stayed indoors away from any open windows on a sunny day. By the time the day was over, I felt upset already. I wanted to go outside and play; I wanted to have fun. Unfortunately, the choice of death or a few minutes of fun was completely different, so I managed to get over it after a few weeks. That's when the first incident happened, however. I was in my class when the teacher left, and out of curiosity, I followed her. Immediately, I felt a tingling on my arm, and then the numbness started to overflow my senses. I felt nothing at all as my arm started to turn a concrete grey, and I immediately ran into the room, crying as I rubbed my arm. The only thing I could feel was a slight tingle and an almost icey coldness from my touch. After around 30 seconds, the teacher came in and saw my arm. She let out an audible gasp, but before she could do much, the bell went off. She couldn't get me out of the room because of the sun, so she called a nurse. As the kids flocked in, they saw my condition and started laughing. I still remember the high-pitched voices squabbling among themselves. One of them came forwards, pointed at me, and said, "HE'S A VAMPIRE GUYS, GET AWAY." And everyone in the room sort of stepped back and kind of ran out of the class, either laughing, screaming, or even crying. That was the day the bullying started. I was eventually shielded with some loose blankets and taken home. I was crying in the car as I overheard mum and dad say, "We have to take him out of that fucking school. It must be hell for the little guy to be forced to stay inside and do nothing." My mum piped up and said, "Maybe we should give it one more chance. Hopefully it won't happen again. Please, Danny, he needs an education!" My dad sighed and pondered for a minute before replying: "Fine, 1 more chance. If it happens again, we will take him out of that school. I felt ecstatic as my dad said that I had another chance. However, I wasn't aware of the amount of harassment and bullying that was to come later down the line. After a week, I came back to school. I had been given an umbrella to walk around with in the sun. Sometimes small rays would hit my finger and it would sort of burn for a second before it faded, but apart from that, I had no issues. When I made it to class, I pulled my umbrella down and rested it on my leg. Instantly, one of the kids behind me picked it up and said loud enough for everybody to hear: "I didn't know vampires needed umbrellas; I thought they just lived in coffins." Everyone started to laugh as I cried. This went on for 8 years, until I was 14. The bullying had only gone as far as verbal harassment until I got to high school. I got lots of judgemental and even fearful looks as I walked around with the umbrella. It didn't take long till people called me a vampire or concrete, and it was devastating. I thought I would finally fit in at high school, only to be tormented on a daily basis and feel ashamed of my own body. After two weeks, my mind started going to dark places. I felt worthless and miserable, as if it were my own fault for being who I am. When I got home after another terrible day of harassment, I felt the urge to harm myself. I didn't attempt to fight it as I lined myself up at the window. When my arm reached into the piercing rays of light, my body tensed, and I felt anxious. The pain was mild at first but quickly started to elevate as I started to sweat intensely. After around 30 seconds, I pulled my arm away and saw that the part of it that was affected was almost black. I started to cry as the horrific sight stared back at me. Then panic set in as I realised the colour wasn't fading like before. In a panic, I got the biggest hoodie I could find and put it on. The pain stayed mild, like a buzz. It was the same feeling as a small needle going into your body over and over, constantly. When mum called for me to come to dinner, I started to panic even harder. How was I going to hide any of this?" I thought as I creeped down the stairs. Every squeal and creak of the wood made me more anxious as I was greeted with the smell of freshly cooked meat. When I sat on my chair, my mum noticed my expression and said, "Everything okay, hun?" Out of panic, she would find out, and I almost immediately replied, "Yeah, Mum, just school being stressful, y'know?" She nodded her head, and as we ate, I started to feel at peace. Maybe they wouldn't find out, and the marks would eventually go away. While I was eating my food, I went to reach for my glass of water, and I knocked my fork onto the ground. On instinct, I reached down and grabbed it. When I sat back up, my sleeve rolled down, revealing the mark. Immediately, my dad said, "James, What is that on your arm?" His tone was extremely threatening. I started to cry, and my mum forcefully grabbed my sleeve and rolled it up, revealing the mark. "NO STOP!" I screamed with tears in my eyes. "What is this, James?" WHAT THE FUCK IS THAT ON YOUR ARM?" It's a burn from the sun. "HOW DID YOU GET IT?" My mom's shrill screams made me sob louder as I choked out the answer: "I did it on purpose." My mum started to tear up as I ran to my room. That night, mum and dad argued. "IF JAMES IS GOING TO FUCKING BURN HIMSELF, WE HAVE TO TAKE HIM TO THERAPY!" My mum screamed. The walls made it muffled. "WHAT IS THAT GOING TO DO?" my father yelled back. "All that will do is make him feel like it's his fault for how people treat him." When I finally faded off to sleep, I had a nightmare about me stepping into the sun and fading to nothing but a shadow. When I woke up, Dad was gone, Mum had massive black bags under her eyes, and she was smoking at the dinner table while she was on the phone. "Danny left. He's at his mom's right now. James has been having a rough time." My mum choked on her tears. I went back up to my room as quietly as possible. I started to get ready for school. It took everything I had not to cry as I walked downstairs. My black scar was still there. I sighed in anxiety as I grabbed my umbrella and walked outside. I felt small tingles as small rays of sunshine hit me, but I ignored the pain as I walked to school. When I arrived, the usual fuckface that tormented me was out front. His name was Brayden. He immediately shoved me and noticed the scar. "What the fuck is that?" He grabbed my arm tightly as he investigated it. "You're a fucking freak, James. How do you even come to this school? I don't get it" Rage pitted in my stomach and mind as I shoved him. "Fuck you," I replied back in anger. "Oh, you want to go?" He put his fists up. I sighed; I didn't even care anymore. Life wasn't getting any better. Punches started getting thrown. I was hitting him hard, but he hit harder, and I started to feel dizzy. Like a sombre scene, rain started to pour as we fought. He managed to pin me on the ground and was pummelling me. As a last resort, I felt for a loose rock and found one. As the hard surface hit his head, I heard the sound of squishing and cracking. He fell off me unconscious, and when I got up, I noticed blood on my clothes. The rain has started to pour now. When I got up, I saw that there was a massive crack in his head. His eyes were open, but he wasn't breathing. I ran so fast that I felt my legs literally melting. As I finally turned a corner, I started to cry. The crying audibly stopped as I looked at my arm. The scar was gone, but the thing that had me in shock was that there were small droplets of rain with a black shade. The scar had been washed off. I didn't shower that morning or that night, so it had not been washed off. I stared at the sight and started to cry. What was happening anymore? I saw a massive semi come barrelling down the road in front of me, and that was when I made the life-changing decision to cut things short. I hoped I would reincarnate as something beautiful and live a normal life as I ran in front of it. The last thing I remembered I woke up in a white hospital bed. The lack of colour almost reminded me of heaven until I saw the doctors. The IV drips and my mum and dad crying next to me I couldn't speak; all I could do was sit there, barely able to see. I remember blacking out again. This time, I saw some things. I saw a bright light, and I remember feeling the same pain as the sunlight hitting my flesh. The smell of sulphur and heat filled my nostrils with a sour feeling. Then, out of nowhere, I blinked, and I was in front of this light. The smell and feeling were so intense that I started screaming, but no sound came out. The pain started to amplify as I moved closer, unwillingly. I heard a voice boom out of nowhere, spooking me. "You are my only weakness." It took me a minute to realise what was happening, but I figured it out. The light was speaking. "You are my only weakness," it repeated. This "entity" was speaking to me. I could understand it. "W-What are you?" I replied back. "I am sün. I am a god, which you all bow to. I provide your land with light in return for a host. I was so confused. None of this is real. The sun wasn't actually alive, right? "What do you need from me?" I replied shakingly. This entity replied back. "I want you to agree not to interfere with me in exchange for your curse being lifted." I sort of zoned out as it spoke like it was hypnosis. I snapped back, however. "Anything.. please! I want my life to be normal. I don't know what I've done to you, but I won't do anything, I swear." This all felt like a bad trip on acid; I didn't believe this was real for a second. This entity made the sound of someone going "mmm," and it said, "I agree. You will be healed when you wake up. Your curse will be lifted. These are the only words a mortal has spoken to me and is likely going to speak to me for eternity." A flash of light then flickered as I awoke. My parents noticed me waking up and immediately hugged me. "He's awake. My James is awake." They sounded much less happy, but I could tell they were holding in emotions. It's been 10 years since that day. I do not suffer from that "condition" anymore. I can be in the sun, but I still feel uncomfortable under the rays of that entity. I was sent to prison for the self-defence man slaughter of Brayden for six years. I don't know what life is anymore. Every day I ponder about that experience. The doctors said my condition must have been either cured or immunised. I don't know where to go at this point. I can't even say anything about it either. Whenever I try to tell someone, I feel my body tense and feel the sting of sunlight. That scar I had is still discoloured. It's not black, but that area of skin is much darker than the rest. Not all allergies are natural. Some are curses provided by higher forces that do not want to be recognised.

2023.06.08 13:11 autotldr Taiwan activates air defence as China aircraft enter zone

This is the best tl;dr I could make, original reduced by 39%. (I'm a bot)
TAIPEI, June 8 - Taiwan activated its defence systems on Thursday after reporting 37 Chinese military aircraft flying into the island's air defence zone, some of which then flew into the western Pacific, in Beijing's latest mass air incursion.
China, which views democratically governed Taiwan as its own territory, has over the past three years regularly flown its air force into the skies near the island, though not into Taiwan's territorial air space.
Taiwan's defence ministry said that from 5 a.m. it had detected 37 Chinese air force planes, including J-11 and J-16 fighters as well as nuclear-capable H-6 bombers, flying into the southwestern corner of its air defence identification zone, or ADIZ. The ADIZ is a broader area Taiwan monitors and patrols to give its forces more time to respond to threats.
Taiwan sent its aircraft and ships to keep watch and activated land-based missile systems, it added, using its standard wording for how it responds to such Chinese activity.
On Monday, she told Taiwan media that the United States had an enduring interest in preserving stability in the Taiwan Strait and the United States would continue to arm the island, a source of constant friction in Sino-U.S. ties.
In April, China held war games around Taiwan following a trip to the United States by Taiwan President Tsai Ing-wen.

2023.06.08 13:11 baldoslav Visiting Andalucia

Hola everyone,
I am planning a 10-day trip to Spain with my bf in September. We would be visiting Spain for the first time. After some research, I considered skipping Barcelona and Madrid for this time, because Andalucia seems so beautiful. We would like to explore the cities, but also to have some time to relax on the beach. I was hoping some of the locals or people who have been to this part of Spain can tell me if this is an ok plan:
Day 1-3: Seville Day 4: Cordoba Day 5-6: Granada Day 7-10: Malaga (because we would like to relax on the beach at the end of our trip)
Every recommendation is desirable! We are looking forward to visiting your beautiful country!

2023.06.08 13:10 cooolbananas Anyone have experience organising a Snow Trip?

I’m looking to organise a senior snow trip for next year and I’d like to hear how you went about it. We had snow trips in previous years, but the teacher that organised it left before I started, so I have no one to snag an old itinerary off for reference.
Since I haven’t organised something like this before, I’m keen to find out approximately how much it might cost, how long you’d recommend to take the kids over for, what kinds of worst-case scenarios to plan for - in fact, whatever advice you’ve got I’ll take it!
The kids have their heart set on Queenstown, but as we come from a low-socioeconomic area and may be falling back on a bit of fundraising, I’m being very mindful of price. I’m happy to book things independently instead of through an agent to cut costs if need be.
I’ll probably have about 30 or so kids all up flying from BNE to ZQN in Term 3.
Any advice is welcome - Thank you!

2023.06.08 13:10 MetalDragonSeeker Is Berlin worth it for someone with no interest in WWII or Cold War history?

I'm trying to plan a trip to Germany in a few years and I'm having trouble fitting everything into one week. I could maybe do a week and a half but not much more than that.
I am very interested in Medieval, Roman, Early Modern, and Reformation history. I also want to see the Alps but I am having trouble fitting everything together.
My main issue is if its possible to hit, the Rhine river, Black forest, Bavaria and Berlin all in my time frame? Berlin seems to be the most out of the way of all these places. There's a few places nearish to Berlin I want to see like Wartburg castle but its not really that close.
I would like to see Berlin because its the capital but I know a lot of the history there is later history which I'm not super interested in. I know there's a few cool Medieval churches but not a ton and since Berlin is farthest away from Bavaria, black forest and the Rhine, should I maybe just try and cut it out of the itinerary? I know it has a lot of museums too that are probably worth visiting.

2023.06.08 13:10 luciferisthename What kind of purge is a fitting punishment?

I cannot actually "purge" but I can use a colossus! I don't want their worlds, I want their death.
I am playing as a tall technocracy with tons of vassals and a federation. Well a federation member colonized a holy world.... and we immediately got invaded. Their overlord soon surrendered to the kahn and then that made me in the war with the FE by myself????????? I was on the otherside of the galaxy and never even set foot over there... I surrendered to get it over with so I could focus on the kahn, they murdered my ruler. He was 200ish years old by this point and was a chronofuge with TONS of good traits.
I will purge them both, I do not want the FE buildings/planets. Id rather exterminate them. How dare the ignorant spiritualist FALLEN empire dare to kill one of us, not to mention our chronofuge ruler.
Should I devolve all of them? Should I just crack their planets? Idk what the neutron sweep thing does but should I do that? I only have the cracker and devolve tech so far.
It will be a while until Justice is served, but my people shall never forget this barbaric act of flagrant belligerence. We are a vengeful people it seems.
I plan to vassalize the holy world offender and then release them later when I can make sure no one will intervene, then I will destroy them.
I am tempted to try and fight this fallen empire before the war in heaven before the war in heaven, but I am unsure.
(If you cannot tell I am EXTREMELY salty and the only way to cure it is death)

2023.06.08 13:10 sharp-shrimp Can you all cut the nostalgia crap?

The battle royale game has been out for like 6 years, in the grand scheme of things it’s not old even for a video game of that scale. People brag everyday how the game used to be good and they miss a certain feature, where in reality the game was wonky and is at its best right now (not accounting for some missed shots like Trio removal, or vaulting certain items of course).
The truth is I assume anyone who’s pushing certain “nostalgia” feeling towards Fortnite right now to be a young teenager, for whom a span of 3/4 years is a big chunk of life.
People kept saying how old maps were better, but the in reality nobody played the modes that brought them back.
I get that when you play a game for certain amount of years, you get to create some kind of bond with it. But the thing is, it happens in a natural way, not an artificial one that you get for missing a poorly made loading screen and some crap game mechanic that was overpowered and glitchy when it came out.
