2021.10.20 11:27 ceaseimmediately Questions about disclosing
Quickly for context, I'm doing an undergraduate at university, and no one, except family and doctors, knows that I'm trans. I transitioned before coming to university (no surgeries yet) and haven't dated/slept with anyone post-transition.
I recently made a friend at university, her name is Olivia. She and I clicked as friends pretty early on and became relatively close. More recently, we were hanging out, one thing lead to another, and we kissed. We didn't really "do" anything aside from make out, but at any rate, she was definitely interested in me (which is pretty nice as someone with a massive complex about feeling ugly). We're hanging out later this week and I feel conflicted, because I'm aware that I'll have to tell her at some point if I want things to go anywhere.
Thing is, the reason I'm "stealth" is very much partly because I loathe people knowing I'm trans, and so I hate the idea of her knowing that about me. On the other hand, I am going to need to tell at least *some* people if I want to sleep with anyone ever, so maybe this is good practice?
Have any of you had a situation like this or have any good advice?

2021.10.20 11:27 questiano-ronaldo When to know you're in your head...
Just picked up our 8-week old male German Shorthair Pointer last weekend, and I am having serious regret. My wife and I both work full time (I work from home), and I am a full-time counseling graduate student (until 2023).
My wife is a lawyer, and she is quite busy, so I have been doing night duty. We are crate training, and our pup is down to 2 potty breaks and is ready to wake up at 6:30am. I am going to bed at 9:30pm and my wife crates him when she goes to bed at 11pm.
I don't think we can do this. I watched a ton of how-to videos, read a lot of articles and books on training, and made all of the necessary preparations for this pup. We just completely underestimated the time commitment, and it sounds like it will be like this for quite a few months (after reading some of the posts here).
Am I being unreasonable? How do I tell my wife that I can't do this? This was a dream of hers, yet I am the one doing everything. My work is suffering, my school work is suffering (as it is ramping up to the end of the semester), and I can't sustain this for months.
I don't want to disappoint my wife, and I know she will forever resent me for this...I'm just lost, broken, and terrified.

2021.10.20 11:27 ThroneTrader $ASTR - Astra Space will send your tendies into space. Long term play with a short term catalyst
tl;dr: ASTR launch window planned for Oct 27 - Oct 31. Play the run up and then protect your butts in case of failure.
ASTR was one of the recently de-SPACed small launch companies along with RKLB that's been making waves. While RKLB got pumped ASTR dove into the ground, mostly because they failed another launch back in August, womp womp.
However, that failure represents a good opportunity to jump in on a market that's been growing like crazy. Legacy space like Boeing and UAL simply aren't innovating. Launch prices have remained stagnant for ages. It wasn't until Elon came along with SpaceX and started smacking everyone with his Elon Schlong that people started paying attention to space again.
But sad thing about SpaceX, it's still private so you can't buy shares from your robinhood account. Hell, I can't even buy shares from my non-robinhood account so I can't even lord it over you robinhood users.
So what can you do instead? Well you can invest in small launch providers that are public. While these are risky plays, there are a few things providing major tail winds.
1) Space Race 2.0 - China and Chinese companies are investing heavily in space. Since China can't participate in the ISS they're building their own Space Station and going at it alone. They also have a bunch of companies working on reusable rockets ala Falcon 9 to be able to further reduce the cost of access to space. Ya, they appear to be just knocking off the Falcon 9, like testing test grid fins but they're still doing something to try and get to space faster and cheaper. This is likely to spur more domestic investment in space and that money can't ALL go to SpaceX, so Space Force and other government agencies are likely to also provide contracts to other providers. This means potentially billions of dollars in contracts up for grabs.
2) Space is worth a ton of money - Elon's Starlink is showing that cheaper access to space can allow for huge build outs of infrastructure. They're proving that legacy infrastructure build outs can be made more or less obsolete. Huge areas of the world have no coverage and moving that infrastructure to space will make it possible to have the whole globe covered. This doesn't even get into the possibility of manufacturing and accessing resources in space. This can't be done by small launch providers like ASTR, but it represents a step in the right direction of reducing access to space.
3) Increased retail awareness/interest - Billionaires having dick measuring contests by going into "space" are getting eyeballs back on space. The fact that I'm posting about it just goes to show that there is increasing interest in space but space has always been out of reach for the vast majority of people. Now with increased privatization of space we can expect to see more money flowing into the sector.
1) Space is expensive, like, really expensive. Old space spends tons of money and moves super slow because every failure is so extremely expensive. But Elon's been showing that you can move fast and iterate and fail and ultimately come out ahead. This is the blue print that many companies are now following so they're going to burn through tons of money trying to get to the goal. Many of these companies will fail, but ultimately a few will come out on top.
Astra has yet to successfully send a payload into space. That's definitely a major con, but it also means that it has an achievable, milestone that can be reached. They failed their last launch on August 28th so that caused the stock price to tank. Because of that I think it's tilted the risk/reward into an area where the risk is greatly reduced while the potential reward has increased handsomely.
While they didn't make it into space, it did prove one thing, their flight controller is very good, able to keep the rocket upright despite losing an engine. Based on the failure analysis they presented this seems like something that they are able to fix relatively easily. Consider the speed of the turn around for this issue, failure on Aug 28th, root cause, solution by Oct 12. Compare that to "legacy" space with Boeing's Starliner which has yet to make a successful launch and was pulled at the last second off the launch pad for their most recent launch despite years of failure analysis.
Their next launch is planned for a window between Oct 27 - Oct 31. If this launch is a success it will be a big deal for the company as it will likely trigger additional contracts as well as open the door to more launches in the future.
The stock has already moved considerably since the new launch window was announced but it still has a way to go before reaching the de-spac price.
Disclaimer: this is not advice, follow at your own risk, I am long ASTR
How you could play the launch:
IV looks to be expanding so options are getting more expensive. A couple of options seems "safe"

2021.10.20 11:27 sothaticanpost How exactly should I use bindParam in this situation
I know how to use bindParam on simple insert statements like
However I have a quite longer SQL statement that has some WHERE and FROM clauses
$sql = "INSERT INTO `table1` (`column1`, `column2`) VALUES (:a,:b)"; $stmt = $db->prepare($sql); $stmt->bindParam(":a", $column1); $stmt->bindParam(":b", $column1); $stmt->execute();
I get that I should bindParam inputs but how exactly should I do it on the ones that are derived from other tables (addressId, personId, householdName, householdHeadName) ?
INSERT INTO households (incomeMonthly, isIncomeSourceBusiness, addressId, personId, householdName, householdHeadName) SELECT '100000-150000',1,people.addressId,personId,lName,fName FROM people INNER JOIN addresses ON people.addressId=addresses.addressId WHERE isHeadOfFamily=1 AND barangay='San Jose'
but apparently it does not read like that.

Hallo, bin vor kurzem zurück nach Deutschland gezogen und werde demnächst noch eine größere Geldsumme transferieren. Mit Hinblick auf teilweise übliche Strafzinsen, bei welcher Bank könnte ich das Geld am besten "parken" (zumindest für ein paar Monate, bis ich mir überlegt habe, was ich damit mache)? Größenordnung um die 300k EUR. Alles bei einer Bank? Oder besser aufteilen?
Freue mich auf Eure Ratschläge/Meinungen. Danke!

2021.10.20 11:27 Weak_Adhesiveness Prepaid Debit/credit/top-up card
Living frugally and budgetting is going very well and I have low expenses in most spending categories. However one thing I struggle with is keeping spending low when going out. Drinks, food, entrance fees etc all combined w/ being in various states of intoxication make it difficult to keep tabs on spending.
This is why I came up with the idea of a top-up credit/debit card that I can top up before going out with my budget for the evening. This way I will not just swipe my credit card willy nilly and get confronted with dreadful CC statements a few days later :)
My question this great community is: what card can I use best for this? I am a customer (checking account) with Belfius and Beobank (Credit Card) already but I care most about a free/cheap option for this. I was thinking just opening another checking account w/ a bank but as we all know bank transfers can be terribly slow between Belgian banks so if I decide to go out the same day this would not be useful (as the 'budgeted' amount will arrive in the account too late). So an instant option would be greatly appreciated.
A checking account with Belfius with an extra card is an option for this I realize but this way I might confuse both cards when ordering drinks (:)) thus defeating the purpose.
Thanks in advance!
