I live in Maine, used 3 different delivery services until the governor’s veto was overridden. I reached out to my favorite one and they shared the news that the loophole was closed with the passage of new laws. They were going so far as to having a doctor in their dispensary to issue medical cards. This was a few months ago.

Edit: news article referencing closing the loophole (https://www.pressherald.com/2018/04/11/senate-votes-to-approve-pot-law/)

The bill you linked was passed by the state senate and house, but vetoed by Lepage a couple weeks later.

Edit: The veto was overturned, but the rules on licensing and enforcement still haven't been written/approved. While the delivery loophole is closed, there's still no enforcement.

paranoid hate speech

lmao, yes, let's conflate running a survey properly with hate speech, okay.

Informed consent is a federal requirement to run studies at a research university. It is NOT "your choice." For example, here is U Chicago's page on it.Here's the University of Michigan's page on it. Here's Northwestern's. Here's Stanford's.

And here's the federal law you're currently violating because "it's your choice".

Completely agree, not having an informed consent form on your "research survey" is definitely shady. Could just be an undergrad not knowing proper protocol, or it could be an industry insider, marketer, or political organization trying to get free data under the guise of research.

Either way, I personally don't complete any research survey unless there's an informed consent with the institution's IRB information included.

Two different articles.

EDIT: granted your link is much more detailed.

Sure, but the content is nearly identical.

Original Poster1 point · 1 month ago

You must be looking at different things than I am looking at then because the titles are identical but the articles are different. Yours is better And much more detailed granted but I can't comprehend that you would think these articles are "nearly identical"

I mean the source content. Both articles are based on a single quote from his radio interview. Sure the PPH put in more context and fluff than the cbs post, but ultimately they're both covering the same bit of "news".

I'm not removing this post or anything btw, just wanted to post the other thread on this same bit of news so that folks easily can read both articles/comments if they so choose.

This was painful to watch, especially since they played the first two, and the mechanics did not change.

A couple new mechanics are introduced in DKC3, but they should have at least remembered the basics of jumping, rolling, running/fast climbing, throwing etc.

It was really painful to see them struggling with the same mechanics and control scheme they mastered on the first two.

Lol, New mechanics like looking in the corner to see you can shoot water in the water level

On spiderboss if I remember right u could just hold the barrel with Dixie and jump up and hit it

see more

you can shoot water

That is a mechanic new to DKC3

just hold the barrel with Dixie and jump up and hit it

Exactly like I said, they forget even how to use the throw, jump, and other basic mechanics.

It really feels like they phoned this one in.

Hmm ok I think I might have terms confused then; the screen you’re showing me I can bring up, but it’s that like list on the left side with the play button and my followed HIT’s that I can’t seem to bring up.

In case you missed it, the dashboard changed last year when the site had a redesign. This is your new dashboard, there's no way to use the old dashboard anymore.

Also, the script you're talking about was TurkMaster which isn't used with the new site. Look into Panda Crazy or HIT Catcher (MTS) for newer alternatives for watching/accepting HITs.

gotten some pretty good recommendations in there already, thanks for posting!

Less than 20% of what you donate is going towards the actual charity.

Source?

Well first of all this is how all charities operate. Most charities actually use less than 10% to help whatever their cause is, its a completely disgusting practice. This video at the start goes over their 2014 tax returns, best I could find without really caring. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=bG6hPJpxzm4

Doctors Without Borders uses 89% of its funds on charitable programs and services. (source)

100% of funds donated or raised through subscriptions during the event are given to the charity. (source)

I don't know where you're pulling the "20%" and "less than 10%" numbers from.

This is the best kind of metalcore. Fast, mathy, and dissonant. Thanks for sharing <3

That's actually how I found this. Some buddies and I were hanging out when the Knocked Loose song came up on spotify and I said "they should swap that bark with DMX."

Next thing I know we googled it and found the vid already existed.

He's totally admitted to being outplayed before lmao

90% of the comments in this thread are by people who watch only Kripp salt compilations and think "Salty Kripp LUL" is more than mostly a meme.

GG I was the one that outplayed Kripp :)

A. This isn't even my final form

B. This is reactionary toxicity.

Reactionism is the lowest form of politics. It's to politics what Family Guy is to comedy.

pointing out absurdity with absurdity is my go to

Pointing out absurdities to make a point is all well enough, but doing so in an absurdist way just obfuscates which point you're trying to get across.

Sure, some things about society/politics are absurd. People aren't exactly perfectly rational and do/think absurd things all the time.

However, just identifying that those things are absurd isn't enough to stake a stance or attempt to debate those ideas (ie move the conversation forward.)

When you use absurdist rhetoric to challenge absurdist politics, it's not clear if you're mocking, satirizing, agreeing or disagreeing with those points. It just adds more noise to an already noisy conversation.

"That shit's fucked up" is easy and relevant in the short term. It's the kind of statement that creates divisiveness and encourages people to take reactionary sides on an issue.

"This shit's fucked up for these reasons, and here's some ways to possibly address it" goes a lot further in actually generating debate and finding solutions.

MTS cleans that up along with a bunch of other quality of life improvements.

Oh, come on. They're not that bad.

Honestly the last couple years have really improved down there thanks to the efforts of Friends of Lower Kenduskeag Stream. They trimmed up a lot of the low brush to open up visibility, added some dedicated trash cans, and organize cleanups a few times a year.

They're ideologies promoted by the same people.

You know for a fact that the people behind the ID law change and those unicorn pics are the same exact people? That kind of claim is dubious at best, and at worst it's a blanket statement that tries to discredit an entire subset of the population based on the actions/speech of a few members of said subgroup.

It's no different than "all trump voters are white supremicists" or "all muslims are terrorists" type arguments. All it does is attempt to put a subset of the population into a little box to discredit what the whole group represents and that's a very lazy thought-exercise that has no basis in reality.
