2023.03.21 21:38 Wise-Ad-2020 I hit a curb while driving and now my car pulls to the left

Hey everyone, I’m looking for some insight, I’m bringing in my car on Thursday to get check out by the mechanic but basically a few days ago I was driving at night and hit a curb with my front side passenger wheel driving around 25 mph.
My tire exploded from impact so I ended up having to swap it for my donut.
I went to the tire shop the next day and got a new tire. As I drove off I noticed my car is now pulling slightly to the left and my steering wheel seems to be off. My car still drives fine and is making no weird noises but I know something is off as I have owned this car for years, I’ve been driving my car now for 4 days and it still pulls slightly to the left so I have to pull with my steering wheel.
Could the impact from the curb have cause my wheel alignment to mess up?
Any insight would be greatly appreciated.

Hello there,

i found this wonderful post online:

Partially true. The final gather rate calculation is hidden, but the efficiency can be overriden in the aiscript. I spent several hours equipping different ships with different loadouts to compare them.
First results. Mining efficiency is disabled, that is, perfect (pre 4.00 version behaviour). My optimal M ship loadout: ARG Drill; weapon - mining mk2; turrets - 2x mining mk1; engine - 2x ARG combat mk2; other don't matter. My optimal L ship loadout: ARG Magnetar; large turret - 1x mining mk1; medium turrets - 6x ARG pulse mk1; engine - 2x ARG all-around mk1; 8 mining drones; other don't matter. Test environment: silicon ore, Grand Exchange I, 3.7 unit/mk3. My optimal ships gave the same absolute gather rate 7.1 silicon per second. From now, I will measure the gather rate relative to this. So optimal is 100%.
ARG Drill tests.. Weapon: mining mk2 - 100%; mining mk1 - 78%; no (only turrets) - 57%. Turrets: 2x mining mk2 - 100%; 1x mining mk1 - 99%; no (only weapon) - 98%. Engines: 2x ARG combat mk2 - 100%; 2x ARG combat mk1 - 85%; 2x ARG combat mk3 - 109%; 2x ARG all-around mk2 - 96%; 2x ARG travel mk2 - 96%; 2x TEL combat mk2 - 98%; 2x PAR combat mk2 - 102%; 2x TER combat mk2 - 87%; 2x SPL combat mk2 - 127%; 2x SPL combat mk3 - 138%; 2x SPL combat mk4 - 143%.
Different M ships with two variants: native loadout (only engines matter) and reequipped with argon loadout. TER Bolo: 2x TER combat mk2 - 67%; 2x ARG combat mk2 - 76%. TEL Manorina: 2x TEL combat mk2 - 58%; 2x ARG combat mk2 - 59%. PAR Plutus: 2x PAR combat mk2 - 85%; 2x ARG combat mk2 - 83%. SPL Alligator: 2x SPL combat mk2 - 185%; 2x SPL combat mk3 - 200%; 2x SPL combat mk4 - 166% (very strange); 2x ARG combat mk2 - 148%.
ARG Magnetar tests.. Large turret: 1x mining mk1 - 100%; no - 29%. Drones: 8x - 100%; 10x - 116%; 5x - 83%; 2x - 55%; 1x - 38%. Engines: 2x ARG all-around mk1 - 100%; 2x SPL all-around mk1 - 90%. Something weird here (strange correlation with drones) and i'm tired to continue.
Different L ships with only one variant - native (i'm very tired). TEL Crane - 78%: no large turret; medium turrets - 9x mining mk1; 3x TEL all-around mk1; 8 drones. PAR Chthonios - 118%; large turret - 1x mining mk1; medium turrets - 6x mining mk1; 3x PAR all-around mk1; 8 drones. SPL Wyvern - 126%; large turrets - 2x mining mk1; medium turrets - 8x pulse mk1; 3x SPL all-around mk1; 8 drones. TER Hokkaido - 77%; large turret - 1x mining mk1; medium turrets - 8x pulse mk1; 1x TER all-around mk1; 8 drones.
Final results. Mining efficiency is enabled. I'm using script to override crew combined skill. I would like to emphasize that the skill of the entire crew, not just the pilot, in normal gameplay. Ware is silicon, other wares will give less dismal results! With probe nearby: 5 star - 96%; 4 star - 85%; 3 star - 61%; 2 star - 29%; 1 star - 14%. Without probe nearby: 5 star - 88%; 4 star - 71%; 3 star - 45%; 2 star - 22%; 1 star - 14%.

can anybody confirm if this is still true? why bother using mining turrets at all? did i miss some patch notes? this is from 2021

2023.03.21 21:37 nicescam Help with finding name of artist/song

I know it’s a longshot, but was at the gym and can’t get the song outta me head!
Female artist singing, sort of Dubstep type rhythm. Music video is 3-4 people in a car partying. Car is stationary but lots of city streets/lights moving by them. Video is unique in that the lyrics are subtitled in a “handwritten” style font on screen. The word f word is all over the song if that helps. Sorry it’s not much but didn’t have my contacts in to see the artist name in the fine print at the end of the video! Thanks 🙏

2023.03.21 21:36 Bianca_Van_Rensburg Human centered design

Human centered design
Human-centered design looks at creating environments and spaces for the needs of the people where the end result must be considered. It is essential to understand the people you are designing for where the function is evaluated before the form. The area that you are creating has a direct impact on the people it is intended for, and the context is crucial because it shows the purpose and function of the design. The buildings that do not follow the principle of human-centered design are put at a disadvantage where the users of the space are not fully catered for, and additional changes will have to be made further along. However, the area will never indeed be ideal for the intended use. It is vital for designers to plan how a space will work before construction or final additions are made. This is why the main problems must be identified and focused on; the intended user is the basis of the design and must be considered, all aspects must be cohesive and mesh well together as independent systems will not work, and lastly, trials and evaluations are essential for it to be the best environment for the people. Designers should be fully involved in the designs they create, and the plans that are made must be socially and politically progressive, not just economically based (Björgvinsson et al., 2012). There are real benefits to human-centered design, and they can be implemented in different scenarios. The four areas focused on are human-centered design in businesses, public spaces, private spaces and homes where technology plays a significant role, and rural developments.

Fig 1. Human Centered Design Principles (Net Solutions, 2020)

Human-centered design in businesses is favourable because they target two groups of people which are employees and customers. Employees are looked after when the space is designed specifically for the duties that need to be carried out. The human-centered design also looks at making the workplace more inclusive, which in turn helps workers to feel the company cares and values them. Younger employees are less likely to stay at a job they are not enjoying. Millennial managers also play a role in how the business is constructed, and they are more open to a flexible work environment where the people who work for the company are thought about in the way the space is designed (Rosa & Hastings, 2018). Customers are also considered when carrying out human-centered design as they are fundamental for a company’s profit. Often existing buildings are used for commercial spaces where they need to be flexible for a variety of different tasks, but it is sometimes forgotten what people need to thrive in the area that they are in to maximize productivity. There are regulations set out for what needs to be adhered to in an office, such as the amount of natural light and ventilation required. It is so easy for businesses to overlook how to creatively use a room without reducing floor space when money is the main objective. Our employees are the direct link to customers, which will affect the profit made. Human-centered design is the future of the workplace as it will benefit the gain of the business and reduce staff turnover.

Fig 2. The power of human-centered design to understand customer journeys (Territory, 2022)

Public spaces can also use human-centered design and can overlap with the theory of urban design. Urban design looks at people and places, and it involves building spaces and landscapes with an integrated design and how they each affect the movement pattern of an area. Urban design combined with human-centered design can increase the social interaction of a space where it becomes more accessible for people to use. (Urban Design Committee, 2015) physical planning is essential, but how it will affect the people it is intended for is crucial to the success of the plan (Rand, 1969). Many public spaces do not end up working for many reasons, one of the biggest causes being that rooms were designed to be looked at rather than used. Often some features to look out for are when a space is not inviting to people; there are not enough places to sit, and not enough options both in the sun or the shade and having unclear or hidden entrances. As designers, it is so important to think about the user of the space and how they will interact with it, public areas must be easy to see, and the person must be able to get in. Places that are designed for people must value the function rather than solely focusing on the aesthetic. Lastly, why public spaces do not end up working as well as planned because paths are not designed for where people want to go; they either lead to a dead end, or they do not connect to the right places. In South Africa, to be more specific, our public spaces are not being utilized to their full potential and for the intended use; this is mainly because of safety issues as well as the majority of people using cars to get around, and these spaces are built around the dominance of vehicles. This leads to a lack of crossroads and sidewalks that are not wide enough. (Project for Public Spaces, 2009). People want life to be as simple as possible, and when an area makes it easier to get around in a car rather than walking, more people will choose that option. This ultimately deters people from wanting to use the space. This makes it very clear why human-centered design is so crucial in the planning stage of any design. The main aim is for a space to be used in the most efficient way. The human-centered design takes time because the use of the area needs to be determined, but issues like deadlines and budget eventually affect the final plan. When designing and planning, the physical conditions of space are vital to take into consideration, but the reason behind people's activities in the public sphere has a more considerable influence on how the space will be used in the future. Spaces need to be more approachable, which is why human-centered design is more valuable to spend time and money on for more public spaces.

Fig 3. Placemaking Through Public Infrastructure (Karnath, 2021)

The design has always been popular in homes to customize the space exactly how the client wants it. People come to their homes every day, and these spaces will influence us. They need to follow the function set out for them, but it should also be a healthy environment. The human-centered design allows positive long-term well-being. This way of designing is not a movement but rather a proposal to make designing better for the people using the space. Our environments are constantly changing, especially with the developments of technology. Our spaces need to support that. There is then a direct link between technology and human-centered design as they both make the user's life easier, so when it comes to designing homes, both need to be considered and work in conjunction (Purkayastha, 2022). The internet has changed the home environment, and people no longer need to leave their homes to be connected to the physical media; they can now stay home to view the news, magazines or even books. Homes directly link people to their devices. With the advancements in technology, designers must take a modern approach when planning how a space will work. Technology can also be used for older people who require assistance, and the way a space is designed for them is crucial. It is essential to make life easier for them, and housing is a basic need. A space can be designed with a specific user in mind. (Guihen, B. 2016). It is essential to look at what makes a worthwhile user experience. Functionality must be considered first so the interaction and usability can be focused on to achieve the intended objective in the most effective way. The next stage is to see how to design specifically for the user experience. The basic needs of the person must be fulfilled, and this happens when the designer keeps close communication with the client to find this out. Designers need to plan for experiences that are happening now and future experiences. This is why a combination of technology must be used but also empathy and emotion from the designer. Technology can control many design elements, for example, lighting, which has a significant impact on the mood of the user. Once you know what makes a design user-friendly and the needs of the client, the user experience must then be merged into everyday life. This is the challenge designers will be faced with because it deals with highly personal aspects, and it will directly impact the social dynamics of family life in a home. Intelligent devices can eventually lead to people competing for attention, and this is why designers need to create an environment where technology is not overpowering the home. Calm technology or calm design is where the technology and the user work together where it is in the user's periphery rather than constantly at the center of attention. Therefore, designers, through human-centered design, can better the everyday life of people and enhance their well-being (Eggen et al., 2016).

Fig 4. Do We Need Human-Centered Design in Data Products? (Panchenko, 2022)

When it comes to implementing a human-centered design in rural developments, the first thing to consider is precisely what issue or problem will be targeted. There are many more significant issues found in rural areas, like sanitation and agriculture, compared to the private sector that can't be solved as quickly. However, human-centered design is all about improving spaces for people, even on a smaller scale, for it to be more user-friendly. Some more common issues that are faced in rural areas are restricted access to health care, poor infrastructure and cultural stigmas. This may be challenging for designers as it may limit them from making specific design choices. When entering rural communities, designers need to understand that they live pretty differently compared to people living in urban areas or cities. The problems they face are different in many ways. Their basic needs need to be fulfilled first. All of the issues community members face in rural developments directly impact their health and wellness. Most designers avoid these areas because of the extreme difficulty of lack of resources, impractical working conditions, and the methods of construction where it may require the need to train people locally in the area, which takes time and limitations in budget. Designers must understand the history of the place they are designing for. It is not about replacing what is already there but rather improving existing systems. It is essential to understand the lifestyles of the rural community members (Gaur, 2022). Communication between the designer and the people you are designing for is vital because when specific issues are brought up, solutions can be created which end up being more sustainable and cost-efficient as they target the direct issue. Design can change lives when it answers the problems real people are facing. By going to rural communities, we give people a voice where their future will be positively impacted. The possibility human-centered design can provide is why it should be used. The information gathered can be highly beneficial for not only future plans but existing systems as well (iDE Using Human-centered Design to Discover Solutions to Poverty, 2022).

When it comes to human-centered design, the most significant reasons not to execute this problem-solving technique are time and money limitations. After looking at the four areas of businesses, public spaces, private spaces and rural developments, one can see human-centered design would benefit each scenario. Some areas are harder to control or implement this design tool, but with each sector, straightforward ways to improve people's lifestyles will help. Human-centered design looks at constructing and planning for the people and understanding their issues is vital for an effective strategy. The design makes innovation and productivity possible. It is now determined that problem-solving and knowledge about the generation you are designing for are key (Hobday et al., 2012). The issues of money restrictions can be solved if more time is spent considering the user as the design becomes more cost-effective and sustainable. Often structures are too complex for the issue they have been tasked to solve. Simple techniques work out the problems people face on a daily basis. For the future to thrive, design needs to revolve around the people that use them.

2023.03.21 21:35 oneir0naut0 I'm posting this here from the Boost Mobile website because I need it to get local attention.

So if anyone is interested, an update:
Sunday I contacted Boost Mobile and told them I was on the way to the store to start the protest. I was then presented (for the first time after more than 25 hours of customer service chat) with a simple temporary solution - buy a new boost mobile sim card and activate it on my current locked phone with a new number until Boost gets their internal issues resolved so they can unlock the phone -
Simple, right- well, just coming up with the $6 to buy the SIM card at Target took until mid-day yesterday. Once I inserted it, you can guess the outcome- I can't activate it on my current plan- a plan that I once again paid for a week ago just to get them to release my port out pin, a plan that they have since added a credit to for Next months bill. They can't add it to that account or activate this sim card. To activate this sim card, I would have to pay for a whole new plan.
This is insanity, I get that- I haven't responded angrily to the people here attacking me- most everyone is ignorant to the reality of being homeless, and I can't get angry at them for that nor do I hope they will ever have the personal experience to understand -
I am trying here. I am a healthcare worker. I finally got an interview at WakeMed for a position I hope I get - trying to follow up with that is a big part of why I'm so desperate to have active phone service. I had to walk for two days to make that interview as my dog can't walk very far. I had to tie my dog out with a note while I did the interview - the first and last time (I hope) I have ever done that
I get it, my life, practically, would be so much easier without my dog, but she is all I have to live for. To people saying I am putting her in a horrible situation and dont care for her, I angrily object. I recently spent the last of my money on food for her rather than eat myself. 15 years ago I was homeless for 5 years. I tried repeatedly to get out of it, and it only 'stuck' when I got my puppy Arya 10 years ago. For 10 years I provided her with a home. Four years ago I got a job as a Patient Transporter which led to the rent to own situation on the trailer which turned out to be a scam. It is so easy to go back to homelessness once you've been in it, and I would have multiple times over the last ten years if not for her. Now I've been forced back into it.
So I can't give her up. I know I'm close to having to and it kills me everyday- she saved my life, she is my life. She never leaves my side. When I worked at the hospital I arranged a split shift schedule (10-2 and 4-10, 4 days a week) just so I could go home and walk her every day. I keep her warm and safe even when I can't do that for myself. She turns 10 next month.
I had an acquaintance that was letting me use his basement for her while I worked at a theater recently. My dad became deathly ill, I had to step away from that job and when I returned the acquaintance revoked the basement. There is no dog care or any solution that allows me to manage a theater and have a random schedule that bounces between opening and closing at 2am. I know for some people reading this they are screaming in their head to just get rid of the dog- I can't and won't unless I become incapable of caring for her.
The hospital position will be a set schedule that I can get dog care for her and will afford me the ability to get a place to live.
To everyone saying I should cut my losses and move on - in a normal world I would. Right up until I lost my home, I had a Pixel and Google Fi service. That phone was broken when I was hit by a car shortly after leaving the hospital - I was doing Uber eats on a scooter. I had to go to Boost Mobile as I was approved for an ACP plan.
Boost sent emails saying they had accepted the plan but they never sent me a phone and have charged me every month for 8 months for it. I had tried for months to get my ACP ported over to qlink and now that I have and thought I was finally out of Boosts clutches this whole thing started again.
I know, believe me, about the internal issues- these issues predate that by months- still, I was as patient as possible through the hack issues and would have never tried the port out if I hadn't been told last week that my phone was unlocked and finally given the port out pin- well, not given it, they made me pay them for another month of service before they would give it to me. I am not expecting them to ever resolve the hack issues at this point- this is not the issue. The issue is they told me my phone was unlocked.
And now, I've spent even more money - I know $6 is nothing to most, but I have nothing - only to realize once again I'd been offered another solution just to get me out of chat.
And to those telling me about wifi and such, believe me, I know- I had a tablet that I loaned to another homeless person when his phone broke and then he disappeared. I currently can only do any of this in wifi, but that presents one of the unknown issues of being homeless with a dog - to be on wifi I need to be in a public place and every hour I'm sitting outside Panera or Starbucks is another hour where someone may act on misplaced concern about a homeless dudes dog. As of now, when I leave this place and walk 40 minutes back to my tent, I will then spend the night staring at the ceiling, wondering if I'm not hearing about an emergency with my father and just going over the Cruelty that is the Boost Mobile situation over and over again until I finally fall asleep in the early morning
And I know a Hunger Strike is crazy. I know this is insane- I do have mental health issues- depression and serious difficulty sometimes with social interaction, and lately every day has been a bad mental health day- I took that into consideration when putting off the Strike.
I did get the meeting with the Housing guy moved to tomorrow, so my plan now is to return to the Store Thursday for the strike. To the people saying I shouldn't be protesting at a store that can't do anything - I completely agree! Constantly phone and chat customer service at Boost will push this idea that you can just go to a Boost Mobile store and they can help. This is a lie and they know it. I point this out. I point out that it will be a four mile walk to that store. I point out that the nice but frustrated gentleman that owns that store only has the option of calling Boost support - he just sells phones. Yesterday still, I was told multiple times to go to a store for this new issue with the SIM card.
I am desperate. I have no options. I can't protest Boost Mobile by 'sitting' online. The Boost store is the only physical location where I can stage a protest. And I know a protest makes little sense since no one will care. My only thought is that an attack on the PR front is particularly undesirable to them currently since they are trying so desperately to keep the DISH hack under wraps
I never once panhandled in all the time I was homeless years ago- I'm capable of work and hate the idea of strangers helping me when I can correct things myself, so I can't beg now. But, if there is anyone in the Raleigh area (or someone willing to ship one to my mom's or friends address) that could loan or give me an no longer needed, unlocked phone, I could activate my qlink service and be done with this until I get the stability again to sue the crap out of Boost Mobile. I would in theory only need the phone until they resolve the internal issues at boost and can unlock my current phone.
I do encourage everyone here that may be having similar issues with Boost to go to the Better Business Bureau and report them or post to a thread discussing Class Action lawsuits even though our contracts prohibit us from participating in one - they seem responsive in those arenas.
So hopefully, good news about temporary housing tomorrow - I've been reluctant to even pursue that as there are people with children who need it more and despite the stress of it, I'm actually capable of getting out of this. Then Thursday, I go to the Boost store with a tent and signs and start my protest.

2023.03.21 21:32 27Purple Innovations by SAAB that changed the car industry

Innovations by SAAB that changed the car industry
The article is in swedish unfortunately, but I've listed them all below. Fun reading for the unitiated!
  1. Headlight wipers. Introduced in 1970 and worked between 40°C and -30°C. 4 years after introduction they actually became mandated by Swedish law, and were installed on all vehicles sold in Sweden.
  2. Heated Seats. An idea that came to life because an engineer had problems with his crotch being cold. They were even automatically activated based on outside temperature and sensors in the seats!
  3. Ventilated seats. Yep, a SAAB idea. Worked by perforations in the seat and a fan that pulled the air out from underneath you. A staple in luxury cars today.
  4. Active headrests. Saab Active Head Restraint (SAHR) was introduced with the 1997 9-5. Decreased whiplash injuries by up to 75%. During a collision, when you're pushed back into the seat, the headrest pushes forward thus catching your head before it launched backwards.
  5. Night Panel. Every SAAB enthusiasts favourite button! Came from the idea that impressions make people tired. So they simply gave you the ability to remove everything except the most necessary bits with the push of a button.
