2021.10.19 01:58 lookingforinfo__ Is it doable to take NBB 301 and NBB 302 at the same time?
I heard 302 isn't too bad but 301 is pretty hard. I'd like to be done with my core NBB classes by next year (401W is only offered in the fall). I've taken NBB electives at the same time as NBB201, but I was wondering how difficult it would be to take NBB 301 and NBB 302 at once.

2021.10.19 01:58 Secure_Cheesecake_11 How can I (21F) come to terms with the fact that my partner (24M) doesn't care about me and it's probably better to break up after 9 months of dating
So I will describe my boyfriend: He's a nice guy, who seems to want to be good and apologizes when does something wrong, but he says he can't change the way he is and the things he does, things like not wanting to hang out with me, not wanting to have a conversation when we have a problem, or not showing so much interest/affection towards me while I do everything in my power to make him feel like the most beautiful person in the world, because I truly think he is, but I don't think he has anything to give to another person. I don't mean material things like gifts or anything, I mean love, affection, attention. He says that one day I will just get bored of him because all we do is watch the videos and movies he likes and laying on bed, when I want to go out for dinner or traveling, or even playing board games if he wants to stay home all the time. But he doesn't like anything I like, he has a hard time making me feel good and I really try not to be a difficult person but I don't know what to do. I love him tho, I like who he is when it's not about me, his way of thinking, the things he likes and does. But I really don't know what to do, because everytime I mention breaking up he gets really sad and tries to do better (I mean not only focusing on himself in bed, asking me what I want to watch or eat) but then he just kinda forgets and becomes too self centered again. I don't want things to end, but maybe they should?

2021.10.19 01:58 Ian_SAfc I'm done with Tracfone, suggest me an alternative ...?
After weeks on the phone with Tracfone, they've been unable to fix my issue.
I was on their 90-day 60-minutes plan which was very reasonable at $20. Basically the phone is an "emergency" phone we keep in the car.
Is there an alternative to Tracfone for a similar fee?
(I am using an unlocked phone - just using the Tracfone SIM. Hoping to keep the same number).

2021.10.19 01:58 Eihabu The one change that would do the most (IMO) to improve RateYourMusic
RateYourMusic has absolutely revolutionized my music discovery process. In doing so, it's revitalized my interest in music as a whole. And this has actually renewed my motivation to pursue music creation itself. I honestly owe surviving the last couple years to RYM.
I used to be restricted to finding new artists by asking around, using the "similar artists" tab on Last.fm, etc. - methods that aren't very efficient. Now I can work my way through every genre I can think of at a moment's notice and efficiently sort things out in a way that saves me an incomprehensible amount of time getting to the most interesting stuff. While the site's ratings aren't perfect, they're on more often than not. I've developed more of a taste for more and more flavors of acquired taste like the Cardiacs' Sing to God or Beefheart's Trout Mask Replica.
The fact that the site had an "esoteric" sort was the biggest feature that sold me on the site as a whole. The fact that it wasn't just about telling you the latest hits that are approved of by the whole collective site, but allowed you to dig through things that just a few people found and loved over years, told me it was an entirely different kind of place. A kind that respected and portrayed a lot more diversity in taste. And it has been. But there's one feature that I think would make this complete.
This thought first occurred to me watching Black Dresses' 2021 release Forever In Your Heart land high on the yearly charts, and then jet very far back down. Here's the deal: the two members of Black Dresses are transwomen. The vocals are incredibly sassy and do nothing to hide that fact. The core fan base of Black Dresses includes a lot of trans individuals. This core fan base was just enough to push Black Dresses over into getting mainstream attention on RYM, and then when the cis mainstream got ahold of it, they had a hard time getting past the vocals - the same thing their core fan base love about them.
This is when I realized that, if Black Dresses just hadn't got so much attention in the first place, they would have remained near the top of the esoteric charts through the year. But since they got so much attention, they were going to get pulled off of the esoteric charts, and they weren't going to land high on the main charts either. The more I think about it, the more unfair it seems for some esoteric albums to get punished in this way. The fact that an album is in esoteric already suggests there are reasons it isn't widely palatable to a mainstream audience! And many of these albums aren't aiming at that. If most of the albums in esoteric suddenly got a lot of mainstream attention, they wouldn't land very high on the main charts. Why should this happen to some and not others? Many people scroll esoteric looking for interesting albums that appeal to a particular niche... but now because Black Dresses was the victim of its own success in this way, it's much harder to find than it would have been.
The next point this helped me to realize overlapped with a different problem I was already thinking about. When I'm using RYM as a shortcut to save time looking for new music I'll enjoy and can get deep into, I use different ratings as shorthand to peg approximately how "essential" this release may or may not be. Where should I draw my cut-off point when I do that?
Well, the problem is that the same ratings can mean completely different things depending on the rating distribution. There are 3.5 albums that get the net 3.5 rating because everyone, even hardcore fans of the release's main genre, agrees it's a 3.5. These albums are generally going to be pretty lukewarm - it's a safe bet I'm going to find this good, but neither hate it or love it.
On the other hand, another album could get a lot of 2's and 5's and get the same exact net 3.5 rating. But in this case, that number would tell me something completely different. Just literally the exact opposite. Instead of being a no-risk, low-reward album, this would be a high-risk, high-reward album: I'm almost guaranteed to either love it or hate it.
Well, a lot of people - including me - would find this to be a far more interesting proposition! Statistically, if I was scrolling a chart of the other kind of 3.5, I would expect to think everything is fine, but love nothing and hate nothing. On a chart of this kind of 3.5, I would expect to hate half of it, but fall in love with the other half. I'd much rather spend time on the second kind of chart!
So, love them or hate them, when we're looking back at charts to memorialize what happened this year, Black Dresses represented one of the more interesting things that happened this year. What it was simply isn't reflected truthfully by the album sitting at #97 for the year, right next to "lukewarm" albums that we can see in the rating distribution nobody got excited about loving or hating.
All of this aligns with a final point about the way the main charts on the site work. As a general rule, RYM or not, we all know that any serious fan of any artist is likely to be annoyed at the work from that artist that sees the most mainstream success. Zappa fans don't think Hot Rats is his best, King Crimson fans don't think In the Court... is their best, and so on. And the thing is, most of us don't think widespread mere-like-ability is a key feature of great music. We all have acclimated our tastes in different ways, so we don't agree on what's best, but most of us think a whole lot of the truly greatest music out there isn't immediately accessible and takes some time and effort to appreciate.
Well, a lot of people giving ratings out on RYM are influenced by the trends they observe in the way actual ratings on albums work. As a general rule, things that fall below 3.5 are seen as standing somewhat in disrepute on the site. This results in many people setting their standard "I endorse, this is good" rating at 3.5; a 3.0 would be pulling the rating down towards territory we all know means "not that great" to people across the site, so regardless of how you feel intuitively inclined to define your own star ratings, you probably notice this and see a 3.0 rating as a slight tar. Things that are actually close to or below a 3.0 star rating are basically seen as garbage. The center-point is not revolving around 2.5 stars as the standard, though that would actually be the halfway point between 0 and 5, or around 3.0 stars, which would be the halfway point between 0.5 stars and 5.0.
Anyway, what does this mean? It means an album not attracting haters is actually more important for it going high on the main charts as it attracting lovers. A 0.5 rating is a whole 3 stars less than the 3.5 standard. But a 5.0 rating is only 1.5 stars more! Thus, there is actually twice as much room for a hater to pull an album down than there is for a lover to bring it up. Of course, this only exacerbates something that's already generally true of the way individuals' tastes overlap to make single charts - widespread likeability doesn't always overlap very well with what specific people actually think is great.
I think there's an obvious solution that would fix all of these things at once, and be a source of a lot of enjoyment for many different kinds of people. Make a chart that does the following: calculate the "typical rating distribution" that most albums receive on the site. Then cut off the half that is more peaky and keep the half that is more U-shaped than the average. These albums wouldn't necessarily actually be U-shaped, just towards the closer to U-shape half of the spectrum. Then rank the best albums that fall in this category.
More challenging music would end up predominating this chart. That is, not just random obscure whatever, but more challenging music that has its corner of passionate defenders. Scrolling this chart would be highly entertaining, because you'd be far more likely to get strong feelings from everything you listen to off it: you aren't going to find much of it just fine, you're going to hate a lot of it, but you're going to love a lot of it, too.
This would go a long way to help make the numerical ratings that albums receive on RYM much more useful, by differentiating between albums that everyone thinks is mid, where you can safely predict you'll find it mid too, and albums that a bunch of people love and a bunch of people can't stand, and who knows which category you'd fall in. At the end of the year, it would do a better job of accurately reflecting the things that actually happened that year. It would compensate for the damage done to the random esoteric that breaks over and becomes victim of its own success when it gets too much attention from an audience that wasn't its intended niche to begin with. And I'd expect it to generate charts that those of us who like more challenging music would actually find more representative of "the best" music anyway - music that wasn't afraid to go for it with bold choices, lean hard into its own aesthetic, and didn't worry too much about alienating people that couldn't 'get it.'
I'm writing this out now because a similar ticket was defeated recently, but I've realized that: 1. this ticket was worded in a way that was very likely interpreted as asking for something completely different than what I am asking for (and now that I think about it, maybe it was). They asked for a chart to rank albums "by how divisive" they are, and that could be taken, for instance, as putting an album that has several 5.0 star ratings and several 0.5s and nothing inbetween at #1. But I'm talking about rating the best albums that are simply more tilted towards a U-shape distribution than average.
Second, I see that asking for a "divisive" chart is incredibly bad PR. The term "division" just has bad connotations all around. But the ways you could frame this idea are as broad as your imagination. Just a few of the ideas I've thought about include: "niche," "alternative," "controversial," "underdog," "mixed," "cult," and "dark horse." But none of these have really solidified in my mind, so if I was going to put together my own ticket for a better version of this idea, this is where I'd need some help!

2021.10.19 01:58 throwthis_throwthat How to share the data in tabular / Excel format as well?
I'm new to learning power BI, I understand when I share a dashboard / reports etc users can see summaries and analysis, displayed visually or in data table box things.
But am I also able to create a tab that has the full dataset?
And is that similar to how someone would use Excel to view a report and do things like basic filtering?
I'm just concerned about publishing this stuff in power BI when my end users are more used to just receiving an Excel file.
I can create custom analysis for them on the reports / dashboards upon their request... but it would be also good for them to be able to see the whole dataset.

It’s my first time watching Married to Medicine. I’m on Season 5, Episode 12 - The Barbados Trip and Dr. Greg has just been so gross all season long. He’s a psychiatrist, but the way he treats Quad is the literal opposite of an advertisement for his practice. He’s a total misogynist. As Contessa says about Curtis in this episode, “you married Oprah, but you want Betty Crocker.” Go be with someone like Heavenly, someone who wants to submit.

To everyone who loves English, how?? Why??
I can't get my head around this subject and I always feel terrible when writing essays. It's so subjective (each teacher tells you something different) and there aren't heaps of YouTube videos you can just watch to understand the content like maths and science. I'm genuinely trying so hard to love this subject but I just can't.
