2023.05.28 05:05 SpringerPop Falling prices.

As a consumer I’ve noticed the retail price of cannabis and related products have dropped dramatically. Within the last year I’ve seen the price of flower drop in Northern and Central California. The price of high quality vape carts has dropped 50%. This isn’t inflation, it’s over production, taxation and the strength of the black market. While the price benefits consumers, who is loosing their profit margins- growers, brick and mortar stores, delivery services? Are the manufacturers and large chain retailers the only ones who are profitable? Thoughts?

2023.05.27 23:59 ShadowDragon88 I've Been Reincarnated as a Bunny Girl?! Ch. 4

YAY! Chapter 4 already done and ready for posting! WOOO! I really hope that you enjoy it, dear readers!
I've Been Reincarnated as a Bunny Girl?! (Chapter 4)
"I love when the merchant caravan comes to town!" Valay cheered from where he was sitting on Kiana's shoulders, making his soon-to-be sixteen-year-old big sister wince. At age nine, the twins were being accompanied by Kiana as they walked through main street in town. Twice a year the merchant caravan, often accompanied by adventurers or mercenaries as guards, came to Starlight Rose. Ever since the destruction of The Spire, the town had started to see more traffic as travelers no longer had to worry about traveling through the narrow gaps in the mountain range, past a source of evil. In the six years since its destruction, Starlight Rose had bloomed and doubled its population.

Walking past the stalls and the games, Kiana smiled, feeling a festive atmosphere. She looked down at Malay, who was wearing a seafoam green dress, the young wolbet not caring that it had been a hand-me-down from Kiana, and clutching a giant blue stuffed fox almost as big as she was. Kiana was wearing a bright yellow sundress, having stated that on such a warm day, it was the best option to help keep from getting overheated. Her mother and sister had both smiled knowingly, not the least bit tricked by Kiana's professions. Kiana would often just not think about it.

Valay, in contrast, was wearing a simple red shirt and brown shorts and some small stick-on bandages on his shins and knees. The young boy wolbet was holding a purple dragon plush. Kiana had won them from a game booth. It was the classic 'throw a ball at a stack of bottles to knock them over' game, and like a cliche, she had seen her little brother throw a ball, hit the stack in the dead center, and they didn't move an inch. That's when big sister had stepped in. Kiana looked back at the booth... or rather where it had been. The attendant was still standing there, staring in a daze, as only half of the structure still remained.

"I'm glad you two like it," Kiana said, picking her brother up off her shoulders and setting him down next to his twin. Mirabelle rubbed up against his leg, making him giggle. The tiny snake, that had been small enough to sit coiled comfortably in the palm of a younger Kiana's hand, was now the size of a Saint Barnard, and just as affectionate as one. The blue-green snake had a tendency to try and sneak food, mainly cookies, when she thought she could get away with it, and had developed quite the set of sad puppy eyes when caught.

"So Kiana," Malay asked, looking up with her forest green eyes, a twinkle in them, "gunna go meet with Davtio later?"

Kiana smiled and rolled her eyes. Malay loved asking Kiana about her love life, or rather lack thereof. The older girl reached over and ruffled her little sister's headfur.

"Davtio and I are just friends," she said, having the day before gone on a walk with the elf-boy from her graduating class, gently letting him down after he had made his courting intentions known. The day after Kiana's birthday, which would be two days after the biannual festival, she was going to be leaving Starlight Rose to become a traveling adventurer. Davtio, with his long and practically glowing golden locks and eyes the color of the deep blue sea, had been disappointed, but he understood.

Jorba the goblin boy, however, had been far less formal as well as far less respectful with his own declaration. Said green-skinned bat-eared boy had walked over to where Kiana was retying her new forest green boots and given her bottom a swat, just below her cotton tail, puffing out his chest and informing Kiana that he had decided she was the finest female in their age group in the town and therefore, will be his woman. Slowly, Kiana had straightened herself and turned around, her eyes glowing with a blue light. With a swipe of her legs and a downward punch, that Kiana had been careful not to be too hard with, she effectively punched the disgusting goblin, literally, into the ground. Still alive and not crippled, but definitely in a lot of pain.

"I know that he liiiiiikes you, though," Malay said, rocking back and forth on her heels, reaching down to stroke Mirabelle's head, making the large reptile loosely wrap herself around the young wolbet girl's ankles.

"I don't feel the same way and I told him as much, so we've agreed to remain friends," Kiana said, making her sister let out an exasperated sigh.

"GAH! That is so just like you, Kiki!" Malay said, using the name she and Valay had called Kiana shortly after they had first learned how to talk. "Someone likes you, but you're just happy being just friends!"

"Hey, friends are awesome to have," Kiana said, picking Malay up and setting her on her shoulders, taking Valay's hand/paw into her own. Malay just rolled her eyes and continued to hug her fox.

"So," Valay piped up, glad that the girls had quit talking about romance stuff, "whatcha gunna buy with the money you saved up?" Valay was speaking of the jingling pouch of coins on Kiana's hip. She had earned extra coin around town doing things like babysitting and helping Mr. Fresto build a new stone wall around his garden, and the like. Making deliveries for the new offta restaurant in town had been fun for the teen bunny, and not because offta was the name for what turned out to be pizza in this world either! Tapping into her powers, she was able to sprint all across town and even over to Lake Phantom and back, often in under a minute.

"Well, I've already bought a bunch of supplies and a pack for my journey," Kiana said, taking note of Valay's ears drooping a bit, as well as sensing that Malay's ears were probably doing the same.

"So... you really mean to leave?" Malay asked from Kiana's shoulders. Kiana smiled and rubbed her little sister's leg, before rubbing her little brother's head.

"Yeah, I really do. But like I've told papa... repeatedly, actually, I'll come back to visit a whole bunch! And I'll be able to tell you all some cool stories about my travels!" Kiana said, brightening their moods.

"Are you going to learn magic?" Malay asked. As the twins edged closer towards their tenth birthday, that meant that they were nearing when they'd be old enough to take an exam to determine their magical abilities. Malay had accidentally turned a handful of flowers to stone when she sneezed at age seven. She also accidentally set a patch of grass on fire just outside her bedroom window after a bad dream a couple months back. According to a very excited Felixin, these were signs that Malay had a high aptitude for magic, and might actually be a sorceress, someone born with raw magical power within them.

Felixin went on to explain that anyone, with study and practice and skill, could eventually learn to use magic, but people like that fell under the category of a wizard. He went on to explain that witches were similar to wizards, but were more like hippies out dancing in the woods. Sorcerers and sorceresses were born with raw magical power already in them, that as they grew older, they needed to learn how to control, lest it become dangerous to them and those around them.

Druids, he continued with his explanation, were similar to witches, but less studious and more concentrating on attuning themselves to the energies of the surrounding natural world. He also said they had a tendency to eat certain mushrooms and fungus that they claimed could open one's third eye, but her father dismissed that notion as them just being addled by the chemicals in said fungi. Clerics were also magical, but their magic derived from whichever god they'd devoted themselves to, much like paladins, but with more study and significantly less combat training.

Finally, there were warlocks. Felixin was not shy about making his feelings regarding warlocks known. Instead of taking the time to learn and practice and concentrate and actually earn their magical power, they were rare people who instead bound themselves to an entity of great magical power, often something very sinister. In exchange for this power, they would do their new master's bidding, oftentimes not even fully understanding why such entities would want such requests done. He even recounted one warlock whose only task was to go out on the road and find a specific boulder, and then move it three inches south. Said warlock just shrugged when asked why, and stated that it was the only task his master ever asked of him.

What Felixin apparently didn't know was that there was a final category. The monk. When the master dragon monk had come to evaluate Kiana, after he had recovered from his shock, he had explained that monks were ordinary people who trained both their minds and their bodies. They would learn to tap into their inner power, their ki, and harness it through their bodies. This was of course after years and years of training and meditation. Of the different kinds of monks, the dragon monks were the most powerful. Once they passed a certain threshold, they would become as powerful as a dragon; which kind of dragon depended on which advanced school of training they most identified with. According to the master, Kiana practically oozed the aura of a storm dragon, which was capable of moving as fast as lightning.

"Kiki!" Valay called, tugging on Kiana's hand. She shook herself and smiled down at the wolbet boy. Kiana looked up in time to see Mirabelle stealthily reaching up at a nearby picnic table where those sitting weren't paying any attention and was trying to drag a plate with an entire rotisserie chicken on it nearer to the edge. She snapped her finger, making Mirabelle recoil and slither right back over to her legs, making the sad eyes at her. Kiana ignored the big orange orbs with the black slits and returned her attention to her brother.

"Sorry, buddy, I guess I got lost in my memories there for a sec."

The boy rolled his eyes and pointed to a large red and white tent that covered a wide area. There were no walls, and plenty of people were milling about inside, looking at the various goods. What had caught Valay's eye were the weapons. Already the boy had begged their mother to teach him swordfighting and, only recently, Pumala had agreed. She took note of how quickly Valay had taken to practicing the basics every day after school, always starting back to stance one. Kiana was certain that he was going to grow up to be quite the fighter.

"Okay, let's take a look and see what they've got for sale," Kiana said, turning them to an opening, Mirabelle following close behind. Together they walked down the set up shelves and displays. Valay was entranced by the swords and daggers, especially the throwing knives and shurikens. Scratch that, Kiana thought to herself with a giggle as she set her little sister down to look at the magical staves, thinking about how much Valay loved hiding and planting stink bombs for pranks and using smoke bombs to make his escapes. He'll probably grow up to be a great ninja or something.

Keeping her younger siblings and Mirabelle in sight, Kiana started to look through the different weapons. There were plenty made from low-quality materials that would probably break upon the first real usage, including an ornate-looking gold sword encrusted with jewels. She stopped just past the flails and nunchucks, spying several different tetsubos. The tetsubo was a weapon of the ancient samurai, at least that was the case for her home world. They were long, thick wooden clubs, in this case as tall as Kiana was, so around five feet in length. Going down the sides of the weapons, stopping only at the ends at the tops and just before the handles at the bottoms, were rounded or spiked metal rivets.

She pushed past some ornately carved ones, and spotted what appeared to be a plain brown tetsubo. It was polished and its rivets were spiked and black. The handle was wrapped in a comfortable-feeling leather. Some instinct deep within her liked this weapon, it liked it very much. Carrying it with one hand, she approached a man wearing a lapis lazuli-colored turban, and some matching lapis with gold trim robes. His skin was a pitch-black, with a shock of long white hair, signifying that he was a dark elf.

"How much for the tetsubo?" Kiana asked, hearing Valay and Malay hurrying to her side. She could practically feel their wide eyes staring in wonder at the weapon.

The merchant smiled, his purple eyes twinkling. "So this is the weapon you have selected? Quite the interesting choice."

"Uh, thanks?" Kiana said, now looking the tetsubo over and wondering if it was cursed, or if the guy before her was going to turn out to be a demon or something and that every item in the shop was cursed in some karmic way like the old cliche.

"It is made from a healthy branch of steelwood. Note that I said made, and not carved. As exquisite as a weapon or armor made from carved steelwood is, it pales in comparison to one that is made with secret techniques to sing the form it was always supposed to be straight from the trees themselves. Doing so ensures that any weapon or armor crafted this way will never dull or break. And the price will, of course, reflect as much..."

"Ah," Kiana said, understanding what the merchant before her was getting at.

"That particular tetsubo I cannot part with for less than a platinum," he said.

"Sold," Kiana said, pulling open her pouch and jangling it as her hand disappeared inside. After a moment of her rooting around and sifting coins aside, she found what she was looking for. Out she pulled a single platinum coin. Her brother and sister, as well as the merchant, looked at Kiana in shock.

"Where'd you get a platinum piece?" Malay asked, watching transfixed as Kiana handed the coin over to the still stunned dark elf, who took it and slipped it into a pocket in his robes.

"I found it just outside of town, when I beat down a giant shambling plant creature-thing. I think it ate a traveling merchant or something, 'cause I found a pouch with ten of them in it," Kiana whispered with a wink. She looked up to see that the merchant had the coin back in his hands and was examining it with a jeweler's loupe, nodding in approval as he pocketed both and gave Kiana an award-winning smile.

"A happy transaction," he said, his voice much more jovial than it had been, "please, look around some more for any more weapons that might catch your eye. And please, remember to ask for F'nnickly the Weapon Merchant if ever you're in the cities of Thassles, Ghostflower, or Midnight Tree. I have shops in all of them!"

"I certainly will," Kiana said, meaning it. She imagined she would be seeing more of this F'nnickly on her travels. She then turned to her brother and sister and knelt down, while the merchant turned to address another customer. "Alright, you two, did you guys find anything you wanted? I'll buy it for you."

"But... your birthday money?" Valay asked, looking torn. Kiana gave him and then his twin a kiss on their foreheads.

"You're my cute little brother and sister. If I want to spend money on you guys, I will," she said with a warm smile that only grew wider at the sight of the two now sporting excited grins. They both ran off and started to look more earnestly at things that had caught their eyes.

"Papa probably won't be too happy with me buying them weapons, but I'm sure he and Mama will teach them how to be responsible with them," she thought. She was still crouched to the twins' level and was about to stand back up, when she spotted something else that caught her eye. It was a pair of seemingly plain polished brass knuckles lying inside a small glass display case on a shelf to her left. They looked to be made of a bright silvery metal. Opening the case and picking them up, they weighed next to nothing, but like the tetsubo, something about them called out to Kiana on a level she couldn't quite identify. Smiling, she stood up with them and tapped F'nnickly on his shoulder.

After learning that they were a pair of master-crafted mithril brass knuckles, Kiana bought them for five hundred gold, which was just half of another platinum piece, so she got some change to fill her coin pouch with. Valay was the first to return, carrying a set of shuriken that were enchanted to return to the thrower's hand with a snap of their fingers, a steel dagger, and a chain and sickle that F'nnickly identified as a kusarigama. Kiana had to stop Valay from spinning the weighted end as well as the sickle. Malay returned with a corkscrew oak carved staff that ended with a glowing purple jewel at the top, floating just above the tip. Right below it were human faces carved in, all with sinister-looking grins. It was a swamp dragon staff, meaning that it was great with poison, disease, and paralysis-related spells. With some practice, a dedicated magic user could use it to help with healing very nasty injuries and infections. Together, their purchases ended up costing Kiana another platinum piece plus another fifty gold.

Kiana smiled down at her beloved little brother and little sister, seeing their excitement as they marveled at their new equipment. Mirabelle, not understanding just why they were excited, was still wriggling happily nonetheless. Kiana looked around at her town, beyond the merchant booths and the games, looking at all the sights she had grown up again with, feeling a pang of sadness at knowing in two days, she was leaving. She saw all the familiar faces of her neighbors and friends and everyone else in this town she had grown to love. But it was time, and she knew it. And she had meant what she had said, she was going to visit often. Plus, she'd have Mirabelle with her, so she didn't expect she'd feel too homesick.

Two Days Later...

Kiana's travel pack was fully loaded with spare clothes, food, her mithril knuckles, a couple health potions (not that she was expecting to have to use them), a canteen of fresh water, some alchemical flameless torches, some books, other assorted supplies and, when she was certain no one was looking, Mr. Wolfy. She grabbed her tetsubo and looked at her bedroom, smiling at the bookshelf filled with all sorts of titles and books about faraway lands. Her bed was made, the soft pink comforter that made cold winter nights just so warm. Her closet that was closed, containing a bit fewer dresses than it did a couple days ago, with them safely packed away in her bag. Sighing, she exited.

She was wearing her forest green boots with gold trim up the laces. They matched her green and gold hot pants and matching halter top. Kiana hadn't been too sure about leaving her midriff open like this, exposing her grey back and white tummy, but she had to admit that she had a pretty decent range of movement. And besides, compared to some other female, and some male, adventurers out there wearing what were basically bikinis or lingerie, this was much less revealing.

Out in the living room, her family was waiting. Pumala stood there, holding Kiana's platinum star-shaped badge, signifying the girl was a registered adventurer. Valay had asked Kiana about the badge that had been hand-delivered by guildmaster Graval the day before, the human man wishing the new adventurer a happy birthday. Kiana had explained that she was now officially an adventurer, but a freelance adventurer. She then had to explain that the local guild was a branch of the international inter-adventurer guild association. For freelance adventurers, a platinum ranking was the highest ranking they could achieve. If they wished to rank higher, they needed to join an official guild, like Unicorn Riot or Phoenix Phist. Basically, the guild in their town was just for beginners. The bunny girl was considering joining a real guild, but wanted to first travel and do some missions, and then look in on the different guilds and find out which one she would be most comfortable with.

"Go out there and have an awesome adventure!" Valay said, his voice choking up a bit. He looked away and wiped his eyes before hugging Kiana.

"Yeah, and be sure to tell us all about the places you go and the things you do!" Malay said, her own eyes moist. Kiana felt the hot prickle of tears at the back of hers and furiously blinked them away as she returned their hugs.

"Count on it," she said with a smile. The two letting go, Pumala stepped forward and pinned the badge on Kiana's halter top, her own eyes misty.

"I'm so proud of you, honey-bunny," she said, now doing the hugging. Kiana hugged back, having to blink away some tears again.

"I love you, Mama," she said, being kissed on her forehead.

"I love you too, baby," Pumala said. The older bunny woman, who now had a slight baby bump again, stepped back as her large wolf-man husband strode forward. He tried to look stern, but the silent tears streaming down his face ruined the impression. He threw his arms around Kiana and wrapped her in a bone-crushing hug.

"Oh, my little princess is going awaaaaaaaaay!" he sobbed, much to everyone's collective embarrassment.

"I'll be back to visit, Papa," Kiana said, trying to gently pry his arms off.

"Be careful out there on the road, sweetie!" he sobbed again, his tail tucked between his legs.

"I will, Papa, I promise." Kiana smiled as he let go, and walked to the door. She turned and waved to her family, before turning back and opening the door. Just after she took her first step, she felt a jolt and something wrap around her right leg. Looking down, she saw her father, clinging to her leg like a toddler.

"Feli, let go of Kiana's leg right this instant!" Pumala called, while the twins, still saddened by their big sister's departure, shared a giggle at their father's antics.

"Never!" he called back, tightening his grip. Kiana rolled her eyes and smiled back at her mom.

"Don't worry, he'll fall off or I'll manage to shake him off before I get to the bridge," she said, starting to walk, albeit with an awkward gait. She whistled and Mirabelle, now sporting a new pink ribbon around her neck, came slithering after. Kiana's friends were near the gate for a send-off, which was made a little awkward by the still sobbing grown wolf clinging to the now mildly annoyed bunny girl's leg. She thanked them all and hugged each one, before stopping at the gate itself. She raised the leg her father was on, and began to shake. After a few moments, Felixin went flying and landed in the dirt with an 'OMPH!' Kiana waited as he got up and dusted himself off, wiping his face with the sleeve of his red robes, and walked over to her.

"I love you, Princess," he said, looking Kiana in the eyes and forcing a smile, "from the very day you were born, you were always my little princess, and it's just so hard to see you go. But please, know that I love you, and that not only am I already proud of what you've managed to accomplish, but that I know I'll be proud of the things you do out in the world."

Kiana, fresh tears of her own falling, pulled her Papa into one more hug, now the one making it a bone-crushing hug.

"I love you, Papa. I'm so lucky that I got to have you and Mama for parents. I'll be back before you know it," she said, wiping her own eyes. Felixin stepped back and continued to smile at his little girl. Kiana smiled back and, snapping her fingers to pull Mirabelle away from a gate guard's unattended bag lunch, the two set off, with Kiana turning back once to wave goodbye, before they finally crossed the bridge, and were on their way out into the wide world.

2023.05.27 06:41 longunderscorestory Do I need a custom solution for this webhooks project or might Zapier plus a scripting language be enough?

I need to set up Webhooks for Onfleet (delivery management software) for a courier service. I am not a programmer but must understand a bit in order to hire one.
I need a solution that will, by recognizing certain text in the "delivery details" field of the delivery entry in the Onfleet "dashboard", send email updates to clients at various stages of the delivery process eg. delivery request received, delivery picked up, delivery getting close, etc. (onfleet has each of these stages/ triggers (and more) for each delivery)
Based on the type of delivery (eg. flower, pharmaceutical, food), there will be some variation as to the content of the message of the email, as well as for which stage of the delivery process the emails are to be sent out. (restaurants like lots of updates while the pharmacy just wants to know it's done, for example)
Onfleet is very flexible and has a powerful API from my understanding. However, it takes integrations and configurations to set it up to your needs. As mentioned, the client's email address and the type of delivery must, manually, be recognized via text in the "delivery details" field as far as I understand. There are no specific fields for either in Onfleet, as powerful as it is.
(by the way, my set up is Typeform form submission populates a google sheet (where data is formatted further) which populates the various delivery information fields in Onfleet).
One programmer (thinks) he can do it with Zapier and google apps script and will make me a google sheets table where I can easily update the various messages for the outgoing emails and (presumably) the rules for when to send emails for each kind of delivery.
Another programmer is saying custom solution.
I'm trying to inform myself further and plan this project out well and without needless restarts.
Is one programming language better than another for this? Can basically any of them recognize an email address and the type of delivery out of a body of text? (and can Zapier handle that too?)
Is this project harder than I think it is and do I need someone with advanced qualifications?
All opinions highly appreciated.

2023.05.27 06:39 longunderscorestory Do I don't need a custom solution for this Webhooks project or might Zapier plus a scripting language be enough?

I need to set up Webhooks for Onfleet (delivery management software) for a courier service. I am not a programmer but must understand a bit in order to hire one.
I need a solution that will, by recognizing certain text in the "delivery details" field of the delivery entry in the Onfleet "dashboard", send email updates to clients at various stages of the delivery process eg. delivery request received, delivery picked up, delivery getting close, etc. (onfleet has each of these stages/ triggers (and more) for each delivery)

2023.05.27 06:10 BeagleIL Instacart Product Swap

So my brother-in-law lives outside Cleveland. And his mother (my mother-in-law) lives in western Illinois. He used Instacart to purchase a large bouquet of flowers for Mothers Day. When the delivery driver rings her doorbell, he just hands her a package and takes off. The package contained 5 pounds of hummus. The BIL gets a notification that the store ran out of flowers and that a substitution was made. Not sure that that was a proper trade….

2023.05.27 05:19 Sunnysky119 The 'real father' is an identical twin

Firstly, I didn't thought of this. I seen this mentioned before in random comments when the DNA test is mentioned. It is not a theory that get much attention as identical twins are complicated matter. So the simplest explanation is that Himekawa Taiki & the Hoshino twins are half-siblings.
However, at this point of the story, identical twins is the only plot twist that the author can pull where it make sense. I will explain in my post below. There is going to be some assumptions but I will try to keep it as objective as possible.

Chapter 1

Way back in the 1st chapter itself, Ai had an notable reaction when she found out she was carrying twins. (In the anime, her reaction was more pronounced)
Perhaps because she has certain connection to a pair of twins in the past? So, she's feeling nostalgic/sentimental/wistful/idk how to describe her reaction about it.

The DNA test & half-siblings

If we were to take the DNA test at face value, Himekawa Taiki & the Hoshino twins are indeed half-siblings. As the DNA test doesn't lie, since it is based on dna testing. However, when you bring in identical twins who share almost the same DNA, things become complicated....
Kamiki Hikaru and the real father (RF) are identical twin brothers. Thus, they share almost 100% the same DNA. A standard DNA test wouldn't be able to differentiate them and make the assumption that Hikaru & RF are the same individual.
So, in that sense, there is "two fathers" because of their DNA.
I remember reading comments questioning the dna test way back in chapter 96 discussion. The assumption was that the father was an much older man so him having kids with different women isn't too far fetched. Then it turns out that the alleged father is a middle schooler. It is kinda insane for an underage guy to be a father of 3 illegitimate kids by the age of 15 years old. (Along with the implication of Himekawa Airi's action...)
Narratively speaking, a half-brother at this point of the story is redundant. Himekawa Taiki barely has a relationship with Aqua. Heck, Ruby still doesn't know she has a 'half-brother'. So, rather than a half-brother, there is a possibility that Himekawa Taiki is in fact a cousin brother to the Hoshino twins.
Kamiki Hikaru is the true father of Himekawa Taiki while RF is the true father of the Hoshino twins. On a legal level, their childrens are cousins. But at the DNA level, their children will be almost akin to half-siblings. As both Hikaru & RF have almost the same DNA , it is akin to two sets of children having the same father but different mother.
( I will elaborate further in the next section on why I don't think Hikaru is true father of the Hoshino's twins)
Some articles for those who want to know more.
At this point, having 2 underage guys becoming a father at a young age make about as much sense as 1 underage guy fathering 3 kids. The former option at least is not as ridiculous as the latter option. lol

The mastermind behind Ai's death

Kamiki Hikaru is the mastermind behind Ai's death. There has been too many build up with him to not be the cuplrit. Chapter 109 further cement the fact he is the main antagonist.
So, Aqua was right in his assumption that the culprit is from the entertainment industry and he is from Lalalie. But the culprit is in reality his uncle, not the father...lol
(From a DNA perspective, Hikaru would qualify as Aqua's father so Aqua is technically right. lol)
The reason why I believed Hikaru is not the true father is explained as below:

Ai and the Kamiki twins

This part is going to very super speculative as the assumption is based on the fact that there are indeed identical twin brothers.
When Ai attended the Lalalie's workshop, she met both the brothers. I believed RF is just regular middle-schooler. But since Hikaru's is in Lalalie, RF would have a chance to know Ai through his twin brother.
They become friends with each other. Eventually, a love triangle formed between them. When Ai started to date RF, Hikaru is consumed by jealously & hatred. He also might have developed some kind of obsession with Ai (& subsequently having an interest in Ruby later on). RF & Ai broke up for unknown reason.
When Ai became pregnant, Hikaru has a motive to hurt her & his brother's children. RF could have told him which hospital Ai was at without knowing his brother's true intention. Thus, Hikaru & the stalker went to the hospital on the delivery date. But for unknown reasons, the plan failed.
4 years later, when Ai called RF & gave him her new address, RF either gave this information to Hikaru willingly/Hikaru took the info by force. Which lead to Ai being stabbed by the stalker.
After that, RF realized that his twin brother is POS murderer. But he didn't hand over Hikaru to the police for unknown reasons. Because of his brother's action, he would be implicated in Ai's murder. RF would never be able to explain himself to his children & Ai's acquintances. Even if he clears his name, he would be eviscerated & never be forgiven by his children for his failure to protect Ai. Thus, RF chose to stay out of his children's life.

White roses

This is just a random thought. I think the brothers have their own flower's preference. Hikaru uses white roses while RF uses an unknown flower. Thus, the stalker usage of white roses is to tell Ai which Kamiki brother send the stalker to her house. It is a indirect message to her.


In my opinion, identical twin brother theory works because the father is the main (& only) suspect of Ai's murder. The whole story is about finding out who is the father & the motive behind her murder. From a DNA perspective, Hikaru is indeed the 'father', just not the true father. So, it will be consistent with the build-up of the father being responsible for Ais' death with the added plot twist.
Of course, I could totally be wrong & there is no twin brother. Time will tell.
Thanks for reading if you have gotten this far.
On a random note, I feel this video is relevant to my post. XD It's from Gravity Fall.

2023.05.27 02:41 longunderscorestory Which language to use for this?

I'm hoping to be pushed in the right direction for a solution that I'm working on.
Back story: I posted a listing for programmers for a project and was hit with many different ways to go about my solution and now I am, equally, more informed and more torn as to which road to take. Before going back to the candidates, i am looking to get a couple things answered.
I own a courier service and am trying to set webhooks up with Onfleet. Onfleet is a delivery management software. It is a flexible application with a powerful API (from my understanding).
It's also a bit of a skeleton of an application in that you configure several things yourself/ integrate other applications. In my case: Typeform for the delivery request form and google sheets to further format the data from the form submissions... and then Onfleet pulls the data from the processed columns from google sheets (via Zapier). (this part I set up myself yay)
I need to use Webhooks to send email updates to clients and customers and to send these emails with some variation (in the stage of delivery progress at which emails are sent out and in the content of the messages sent in the emails) which will depend on the type of delivery (flowers, pharmacy, food). I have set up my typeform and google sheets so that the particular client's email address ends up in the "pick up details" field in my Onfleet dashboard. Despite there being additional details in this "pick up details" body of text, it's my understanding that Webhooks can identify the email address and trigger an email sent to it.
I also set up/ automated some abbreviations for Delivery Type to show up in this same field in onfleet as an identifier which type of delivery it is. For example, if flower delivery is selected in the typeform... then flower shows up in google sheets cell... then "flo" shows up in my "pick up details" field in Onfleet. It is my understanding that webhooks can identify "flo" and act accordingly on which messages to send in the emails, and at which delivery statuses to send it out according to what I have programmed for flower deliveries email notifications. (admittedly, this idea of putting the abbreviations eg. "flo" is something that I came up with based on a basic understanding of how webhooks work). Maybe there is a better way to do it. However, Onfleet gives you a only a blank slate in a sense that, in it's dashboard, there isn't an official way to identify the type of delivery.
If you got through the long read, I will now get to the point...
Any suggestions for which language to use? I am not a coder if that is not yet obvious. Onfleet webhooks guide says
"What programming language are you using for your integration? If the answer is Python, PHP, JavaScript, Ruby or Golang you are more than welcome to jumpstart your integration by using our pre-built official API Wrappers: pyonfleet, php-onfleet, node-onfleet, ruby-onfleet and gonfleet. Other users have created their own scripts and features to make Onfleet work for them, and we love to see it! If you don’t see the language of your preference here, there may be an unofficial wrappers available through other users' repositories on github. However, we can only support issues with content in the official onfleet github. "
My plan is to use also use Zapier with it because I was assuming that that will speed up my process of getting this going (and maybe I can update to a more custom version that doesn't use zapier in future).
One programmer said his solution is to use google sheets where he will create a table so that I can update my custom messages for the different scenarios. (I do like that idea of being able to easily update my email messages myself)
Another programmer suggested a customer solution/ facility that will sit on an independant server.
Nobody is speaking about the programming languages noted in the onfleet guide.
My other question is what level of qualifications and talent does this project require? I am on Upwork and getting a whole variety of talent. Perhaps my problem is that I need to be clearer in my listing with what I'm asking for. Can someone assist to get me in the right direction?
Thank you

Residential Contracting 101
With over 20 years of building experience, I would like to share with you my insights in navigating becoming a successful contractor. With many different avenues of the building world its key to understand what problems will arise on any given day. A man once told a saying that stuck-the 6 p’s in life- Piss Poor Preparation leads to Piss Poor Performance. Preparation builds everything in construction, without preparation the jobsite will not run correctly. The best advice I was ever given was to learn a little about every trade giving you the ability to understand trade lingo and secrets. An example would be painters use the terminology flash; this means when the sub structure bleads through the paint. Subcontractors will give the best pricing if they respect your knowledge of the industry. If the subcontractor feels they will have to hold your hand through the job they will charge an extra fee…i.e. I call it the aggravation fee. In this blog I will explain the key elements in finding success in all aspects of the industry. Contracting is a physically and emotionally demanding job which requires planning and foresight to complete projects on time within budget. Picking your customer is just as important as picking your employees or subcontractors. I have worked for some of the most demanding customers leading me to question at the end if the job was even worth it. Sleepless nights, constant changes, lack of payment, lawsuit threats, adding work that was in the contract are just a few things you could face with a tough customer. With so many moving parts at all times it is critical to be able to adapt to changes within a short time frame. Materials will come in damaged, subcontractors will be late, employees will get sick, but the deadline you set does not change. The stress can be overwhelming at times keeping your mind in a good place is key to navigating all that is thrown at you. Choosing your client picking the right jobs-Keep these questions in mind The first question to be asked is what the time frame is to start the job to see if it fits within the timeframe for your business. If the time frame doesn’t work then move on from the project or let them know when you would be available to start. If the client really wants to use, they will wait until you are available. Taking on too much work will only lead to problems. Construction is a serviced based business, staying on top of the project and client will eliminate an unhappy customer and construction issues that will be over seen. With online presence if details are missed and customer service lacks it will only be a matter of time the phone will not ring. The second question to be asked to the client is do they have a budget in mind for the project. If they answer yes this is good, follow through with what the budget is. If the budget seems low let them know, this will eliminate a tire kicker, educate them on what the price range could be. If the budget seems reasonable then continue the discussion to the next question. If they answer no let them know that you can give them an estimate to see if the project is feasible with their finical capabilities. Taking on a job that is not correctly budgeted will lead to an unsatisfied customer due to non-transparency of the construction cost. The third question to be asked is anyone else bidding on the job, if the answer is yes, understand you might just be number check for the contractor doing the job. Dig a little deeper and find out how many numbers they are getting and why. If your business model is to be competitive be completely transparent with customer, this will gain trust with them. Let them know you get what you pay for and if you they choose the lowest bid it could lead into lack of quality of work.
The fourth question I will ask is there any specific subcontractors they wanted to use. If the answer is yes then I would explain to them you only use the subcontractors you have a working relationship with. Otherwise, this could backfire as the subcontractor might not show, do subpar work, talk behind your back to the homeowner. In my experience I would stay away from using any homeowner to alleviate problems down the road. A quick conversation now can save headaches down the road. The fifth question I will ask are planning on getting the job permitted, this needs to be known it takes more time for the permitting process. Plans will have to drawn submitted and approved to the city before work can commence. The sixth question I will ask if a residential remodel is are you going to be living through the remodel if yes understand this will take more time to navigate the project due to answering questions and cleaning the house on a daily occurrence. I would recommend seeing if the customer would be willing to move into an Airbnb or friends for at least the demo portion of the project. If they do plan on living through the remodel add a couple hours a day to accommodate the extra time that will be required. The seventh question I would ask in a residential remodel is how old the house is to see if there is asbestos that would need to removed by a proper company. A home built before 1979 will most likely have some asbestos in the house, use a licensed company with proper insurance to dispose of the materials. If everything looks good to this point find out a little more about the client personality. If the client seems reasonable, I would bid the job. Unreasonable people can cause you more stress than its worth. These are some red flags I would look out for. Some jobs are not worth the money. Very demanding in the way you are going to perform your job- I.e., tell you how you are going to do your job- You’re the professional not them! Give you a hard time about your price- haggle with price you estimated- The price is the price! If they are a family with little money and you want to help them out is one thing, if they are trying to beat you down is another. Mention they have a lawyer-there is no need for them to bring up that they have a lawyer - Run for the hills as if the job goes south, you will be the one losing out! Tell you what the payment terms are. It’s your business you get paid how it works for your company. If you want to get paid every Friday, put it into your contract-If the clients do not agree move on it will save you frustrations If they talk bad about the last contractor, chances are they will talk bad about you. There is a reason why the contractor does not work for them anymore, unless he did subpar work this a red flag Clients are using an interior decorator that will purchasing all of the materials- The materials could be ordered incorrectly by the interior designer your company will not make the mark-up it deserves. Interior decorators usually add time to the job as well as act like your boss. Charging a little extra for the time and stress that it will entail is only fair. Clients want to purchase the materials- You are using your knowledge to buy the correct materials-The mark up on the materials keeps the doors open working for wages only pays the bills The husband and wife do not get along-You will become the mediator between the couple it will lead to taking sides a losing proposition- A drama free work place is always best! Dangling carrot-if you do this job the next one will be better-Only look at what there offering at the present moment, if its not a good fit do not take the job for a job down the road…Its not worth chasing a job that might not happen! The Art of the Sale First things first selling your company is all about presentation. In meeting your clients for the first time show up with a collared golf shirt tucked in, belt, nice jeans, and newer shoes. Have a truck that a clean, no dents scratches, preferably washed the day you are going into your meeting. Have a leather note pad that is clean no dirt or paint visible. Show up 5 minutes early, if you’re running a little late shoot them a text to let them know. Treat the situation as if were going on a first date, best foot forward. As you introduce yourself give them a warm greeting, letting them know you are very interested in the work. Find out a little about them, hobbies, where they lived, etc etc. You are going to be working with them on a daily basis its nice to know what makes them tick. Having a good working relationship from the start is key forming a solid relationship. As the conversation progresses find out who wears the pants in the family…ie who’s the final decision maker. If its fits the wife, chances it is…..then kindly let the husband know happy wife happy life when their in a stall mate on an issue. As your looking at the project throw in some suggestions of what you think would look good from past experiences, this will get their attention that you have knowledge and want what’s best for them. If you see ways to save them money in their project let them know, money is a large point of the sale keep that in mind. Mention that you’re not the least expensive contractor but you’re not the most expensive either. Your customer satisfaction is your number one goal which leads to more time spent on keeping them happy. One happy customer will lead to another, one unsatisfied customer leads to work in the future. Bring up the fact the finishing the job on time is key goal to your business, many contractors run several jobs at once causing the jobs to be finished way behind schedule. You must stand out as having integrity, good morals, and the ability to problem solve to get the job. The clients will be testing you to see if you’re a good fit as well. Keep in mind as you take your notes that you must not forget anything they mention as it will come back before the job is completed…i.e. we mentioned that to you before we started the job! Take pictures of the proposed area for work, that way you can use it to better right your estimate. Let them know you will give them a detailed outline of when the job will be completed letting them see how long each phase will take and correlate it with your payment schedule. Before you leave their house let them know when the estimate will be sent to them. MAKE SURE YOU HIT THAT DEADLINE! Once you sent the email over with estimate make sure you get confirmation that they received it. Wait at least 2 days before checking with them, hopefully they contact you first! If they want negotiate the price, let them know that it is the best price that you can manage, its not worth losing money before you start. I closed 80% of the work I estimated by being very transparent and friendly. If you come off with an attitude charge double what the going rates are you might only land 1 out of 10 jobs as well as getting the reputation of being expensive. Bidding the job Looking up industry standards on pricing is what I would go buy for pricing. If you google the coat of any installation there will be a cost range for everything. Looking at the cost ranging from high to low I would tend to be in the middle. Some items might be low on the internet if this is the case use your best judgment not to lose money. Closing sales is key to success and keep the doors open for business. Being in the middle on pricing is key as most customers shy away from contractors that are extremely low or high on the price range. I tend not bid out hourly as wages do not pay for retirement. Bidding is better as customers no the exact price of the cost of construction. It also keeps the job moving quicker as time and material contractors take longer to complete projects…Thus costing the client more money and valuable time they could spend in their house. Using a Contract Using a detailed estimate tied to a contract covers your butt in 99% of the time. Having a piece of mind that every aspect of the job is covered in the estimate and contract protects both your company and the client. Key terms to include in your estimate/contract are. Have a schedule on excel showing the start dates and dates of each trade this will show the customer you are organized with time lines. If not written in the detailed in the estimate the item is excluded- This ensures if its not written down its not included. TBD- To be Determined- A phrase on a line item that has yet to had final decision of products or service needed. -The pricing will follow the decisions to be finalized Give out what your written warranty will be for parts and labor this changes state to state. If the homeowner provides the product than no warranty will be given on that particular item. In the contract have a start date and end date with the verbiage subject to change due to weather, product delivery, change orders Have a progress payment schedule to ensure the client understands when funding will be expected-Including if not payment is rendered service to the project will stop. Have written terms of how change orders will be charged-cost plus 20% or a set fee Make sure in your contract that arbitration is required versus going to court- This will save lawyer fees and going to court Many contracts can be found online and each state requires different contracts
Finding leads Finding leads is easy with the right network of people. I personally do not find working for friends or family members a good fit. Relationships get strained when money is involved, causing undue stress for both parties. I have listed a couple of ways to build a network or find work using the internet. Get in contact with realtor’s- Realtors have a big client base of homeowners who need work done Contact local Architects to see if they are working with any general contractors Leave some business cards at your local materials suppliers-Doowindow/lumber-many times clients will ask salesman for a referral. Join a business networking group- BNI is one of many Join a internet website lead generation company- Houzz, Angie’s List, Home Advisor, thumbtack, Yelp run an ad on craigslist Use a marketing company to market your website-This could become costly with little results Create a Facebook business page Create a Yelp business page
Building your subcontractor base Having 2 subcontractors for every trade, gives you the flexibility of completing jobs on time if the one the subcontractors is too busy at the time you need their service. Your subcontractors are the face of your business, choose owner run companies that are professional. Check to make sure there license are up to date..ie workman’s comp, liability insurance, state license. Choosing subcontractors with lettered vans, logoed t-shirts is s key to looking professional in the clients’ eyes. In the past I have gotten a lot of subcontractors for material supply shops, stopping by jobsites, researching the internet using Yelp, Home Advisor, etc etc. Once you get one good subcontractor ask them if they know any other trades they would recommend. One good subcontractor leads to another in most cases. The key to having a good group of subcontractors is to let them know that you are there to get help them get the job done. They do work for you but without them you are nothing…keep that in mind! Make them aware a clean jobsite is required at the end of everyday to ensure the proper safety for all parties including theirs! Over the years I have referred a lot of companies work when there is only 1 trade needed. Referring work to subcontractors is a good way to get top priority when you have work that needs to be completed ASAP. Timing is everything in times of emergency having a good group of subcontractors will make your business run smoothly. Pay your subcontractors immediately after performing work, this will make them feel appreciated! A happy subcontractor is one that will gladly go the extra mile for you knowing that there not just a number to your business! Buying lunch once a week for the jobsite is always a good token of appreciation!
Supervising In supervising any jobsite its key to monitor everything from materials on hand, weather, vehicle parking (if applicable), jobsite safety, and subcontractors’ workmanship. If you hired a professional there should be little supervision in the work being performed, on rare occasions a new hire might need some mentoring to get the results completed correctly. If you see a problem with there work address it with the worker directly, no need to call his boss…. building repour with the worker letting him know you got his back goes miles down the road! Checking in on the job first in the morning to answer any questions or changes that need to be conveyed and once in the afternoon to make sure all work be completed is done per construction industry standards. A job that is run blindly will have many more issues than one that is watched over. I have seen many jobs with no site supervision, leading to subpar quality work as well as safety hazards. Its better to be like an eagle than cluck like a turkey!
Working with the City/Inspectors On permitted jobs the city and site inspector will be a large part of how smoothly the job runs. Each phase of construction has an inspection allowing for the project to continue. Make sure your subcontractors are aware that the project is inspected before starting the job. The best way to stay on his good side is to provide a clean jobsite and having the job built to the highest standards possible. When having the site inspected be courteous to the inspector asking any questions or concerns you have with the work during the job. Being completely transparent will save you aggravation of problems down the road. The more he trust you the better if you seem sneaky or rude he will make your life a living nightmare! Many inspectors will have an attitude towards you….I suggest keeping quiet and doing what ever he wants….he’s the boss no need to get in a pissing match you will not win at. How to deal with irate customer Stay calm during any argument with an irate customer. Never raise your voice or show that you are bothered by their disgruntled behavior. If the customer is trying to get more from you than agreed upon stand your ground. Worst case scenario is you walk from the job, which in the long run be more of a loss for the client. I have only run into a couple of these clients; they are unreasonable and not worth losing sleep over a few dollars. Its best to terminate the relationship as it would be my best guess that a referral from this customer would not be one you wanted anyway. If you feel it was just a miscommunication on your end, take reasonability and remedy the problem. Taking accountability for your mistake will go a far way in their eyes and on future issues that arise. Prepping the homeowner pre-construction Before starting the job, it very important to give the homeowners a warning of what will happen during the construction process.
  1. All furniture in the proposed working area must be moved- I would recommend having the clients take care of this to limit the risk of damage to their belongings.
  2. There will be dust that will be in the house up to 3 months after construction-I would recommend hiring a construction cleaning company at the end of the job even so after it is cleaned dust will be present months after words.
  3. There will be conflicts between you in the homeowner at some course of the job. - You will do your best to eliminate them as quickly as they arise-i.e. material damages, miscommunication, job delays
  4. All decisions on materials must be made before the start of the job- this will eliminate job stoppage due to materials not being on site.
  5. All materials will be on site before commencement of job-
  6. Payment structures must be made per contract otherwise job will stop until payment rendered
  7. Cars are to be moved out of the driveway- Ensures ease of loading and unloading of materials/tools
  8. Give the specific hours that workers will be present- i.e. 7-3:30
  9. Determine what areas are allowed to be used as staging for tools/materials
  10. If animals are present in the home that they put outside or in a room during the day
  11. All valuables in the house are locked in safe
  12. Ask if using client’s household bathroom is okay or to bring in Porter Potty
  13. Being transparent as possible is key to keeping a great relationship with your client!
During Construction During construction it is key to take detailed photos to eliminate any damages that were not caused by the construction process. I would also make a video to ensure all areas are included. All subcontractors should also take progress pictures to ensure if problems arise in the future, they will not be responsible for any work that they did not perform. Keep an on-going log of progress to the homeowners and share the pictures for there records. This will keep homeowners excited of the progress being made. When the house is gutted to the studs it is important to have construction photos showing where all utilities are run in the walls or sub floor. If there is a problem in the future there will photos showing all utility locations. Protect all flooring with plywood or floor protective. I also like to protect front door and tarp all areas where subcontractors are to be working. Make sure to cover any chandeliers/furniture/doorways with plastic to eliminate dust. Ask the homeowners if they have any concerns that they could think of. We’re all human and possibly a detail was missed! Post Construction Phase If the project went smoothly appreciation should be shown to the customer. Find out if the husband likes a particular type of liquor. Bring the wife a bouquet of flowers. Send a Christmas card to the family letting how much you appreciated the work. You know you have done a good job if they tell you they will refer you to their friends. The best compliment you could receive is a good referral. In Summary Try to find a knitch in the market, I found kitchens to be a great remodel projects. Bathrooms are tough as they are small, expensive with little profit margin with every trade involved. Windows/doors are also another great knitch as they can be installed quickly. There are so many different remodeling items that can be stream lined to make the selling installing process flawless. Once the core group subcontractors are in place the job almost runs itself. Every day is a learning experience with new materials or methods in construction. Keeping up with codes, materials, fluctuating labor and material cost is a job within itself. Anyone can be a contractor with the right mindset.

Day 89: Gelato Auto low effort hydro greenhouse grow
My apartment has a rooftop atrium space which gets a ton of sun and warmth. I've grown everything from basil to pomegranate up there, but usually keep it free of any MJ due to how exposed it is.
Last year, when Greetrees Hydroponics had their big liquidation sale, I nabbed a 12-site ebb and flow rig super cheap. I also got a license to grow MJ, so felt less cautious about growing out in the open.
I got a pack of photoperiod seeds for an indoor grow earlier in the year, but was given some free auto flower seeds with my delivery. So I decided to pop one in my hydro rig and just...let it do its thing.
It gets a ton of light, but mostly filtered through a shade sail to prevent my living area becoming uncomfortably boiling. And my hydro system has a fairly standard nutrient mix in it - the rest of the rig contains everything from wisteria to grapes to basil, and my nutrient focus has so far been vegetative growth. I've also done no lst whatsoever, and only a teensy bit of defoliation a few weeks ago.
But, for a grow I approached very much with a "set it and forget it" mentality, I'm pleasantly surprised at how this one's shaping up.

Into The Music S7 Episode 20 - Lee Hi's Answer
I hope you all had an enjoyable week. My week was decent; some tunes helped move the week forward. I know the days have been getting warmer. I saw NMIXX on Mother's Day, which I still believe happened. So I picked out some tunes I would like to share with you that you all will enjoy. Now let's jump into the music and see what the artists deliver this week and my thoughts.

Other Releases of the Week:
May 21st
Blooming Today - Sung Si Kyung
A piano opens the track with sweet vocals from Sung Si Kyung that help to craft the chill vibe. I've been listening to this song several times this week, as it's been relaxing. Sung Si Kyung has an excellent voice that works well with different styles of music. This track might not be my all-time favorite, but it works with the singer's voice. I'm glad Sung Si Kyung is back with some new music, as the vibe of this track works well with the singer.

May 23rd
Candy (Feat Zion.t) - Jay Park
Jay Park is back with a new single produced by Cha Cha Malone. This bouncy track blends well with the smooth vocals from Jay. The hook has been stuck in my head since it came out, as I've been having this on repeat. I've been enjoying the music Jay has been doing this year, but this song will be perfect for the summer. Zion.t is the featured artist, and it's nice to hear him again since it feels like a while since he has done something. Zion.t delivers some smooth vocals that work well with the vibe making this another favorite section of mine.

⊱ ────── {.⋅ ✯ ⋅.} ────── ⊰

Flower - Seola
Seola of Cosmic Girls dropped a single this week. Seola's sweet voice blends well with the melody that the guitar crafts, as it has made me feel relaxed as I've heard this tune several times. Seola is an underrated singer with one of my favorite voices. Flower is a song that fits perfectly with the spring season, as I've added it to my spring playlist. I would love to see more solo music from Seola since I love her sweet voice, which works well with different kinds of music.

⊱ ────── {.⋅ ✯ ⋅.} ────── ⊰

May 24th
Answer Answer - Padi
An artist named Padi released a single album this week, and one of the tracks caught my eye as Lee Hi was featured, which made me check it out. So Do is the first song on the single opening with a jazzy piano melody that piqued my interest. Lee Hi's smooth voice is perfect for this jazzy beat, as I've wanted to hear her do this style again. I love the delivery of the vocals that keep this tune interesting as they blend well with the overall vibe crafted by the producer, which I think is Padi. Thama & YDG feature in the second song on the single called OUTCASTAWAY. A guitar opens up the track with high hats that blend well with Thama's voice, keeping this tune interesting. Again, I love the smooth production, keeping this tune fresh. YDG has a killer verse I didn't expect to be liked, as I'm not the biggest YDG fan.

Sacheen Littlefeather (( Marie Louise Cruz ))

Sacheen Littlefeather (( Marie Louise Cruz ))

Marie Louise Cruz (born November 14, 1946), known as Sacheen Littlefeather, is an Apache actress and activist for Native American rights.
On March 27, 1973, she represented Marlon Brando at the 45th Academy Awards to decline the Best Actor award for his performance in The Godfather.
The favorite to win, Brando boycotted the ceremony in protest of Hollywood's portrayal of Native Americans and to draw attention to the standoff at Wounded Knee.
During her speech, the audience was divided between jeers and applause.

Half-Native American (both White Mountain Apache and Yaqui) and half-white, Littlefeather had sought to become an actress.
She was involved in the 1969 occupation of Alcatraz and learned about her heritage.
After the Academy Award speech, she worked in hospice care, continued activism for a number of health-related and Native American issues, and produced films about Native Americans.
Early life and career
Sacheen Cruz Littlefeather was born Marie Louise Cruz on November 14, 1946, in Salinas, California.
Her mother was a leather stamper from Phoenix, Arizona, of French, German, and Dutch descent.
Her father was a child of an alcoholic father who beat him and he grew up in foster homes, among relatives, poor, and suffered from a tumor on his hearing nerves resulting from loud head noises.
He later met her mother as a saddle Maker in Arizona.
Her father died of cancer at 44 years of age in 1966 and is buried at our Lady of Guadalupe Church in Salinas.
A tombstone was erected in his honor by his wife's request and placed by their youngest daughter.
The Church is now a historical monument by the Monterey Historical Society.
Her mother and two sisters were subject to their father’s rage & beatings.
Her father was born in the desert and is from the White Mountain Apache and Yaqui tribes. The couple moved to California while her mother was pregnant.
They opened up their own business.
"Cruz Saddlery" and her parents are also remembered in Salinas Valley.
She was primarily raised by her maternal grandparents, Marie and Barney, and was Catholic as a child.
Sometimes she lived with her mother; she recalls a trip through Mississippi when she was told to use the "black" water fountains and a sign that read, "No Dogs or Indians Allowed".
While she attended California State College at Hayward (now California State University, East Bay), she continued to look into her Native American identity.
In Oakland, she worked with the Intertribal Friendship House.
In 1969, she became a member of Indians of All Tribes and participated in the occupation of Alcatraz, when she adopted the name Sacheen Littlefeather.
She learned more about Native American customs from elders and other protesters.
On a full scholarship to the American Conservatory Theater, she began acting education. Aspiring to become an actress, Littlefeather picked up several radio and television commercial credits and joined the Screen Actors Guild.
In 1970, she was named Miss Vampire USA, a promotion for Dark Shadows.
Playboy magazine planned a spread called "10 Little Indians" in 1972, and one of the models was Littlefeather, but Playboy editors cancelled its publication due to the Wounded Knee incident.
A year later in October 1973, after her Academy Award appearance fame, they ran the photographs of Littlefeather as a stand-alone feature.
Littlefeather was personally criticized for what was seen as exploitation of her fame. Looking back at the photo shoot, Littlefeather later said, "I was young and dumb.

Academy Awards speech, 1973
Littlefeather got in contact with actor Marlon Brando through her neighbor, director Francis Ford Coppola.
She wrote Brando a letter, asking about his interest in Native American issues, and he called the radio station where she worked a year later
Brando had worked as an activist with the American Indian Movement (AIM) since the 1960s and into the 1970s.
In Washington, D.C., where Littlefeather was presenting to the Federal Communications Commission about minorities, they met and found in common their involvement with AIM.
In 1972, Brando played Vito Corleone in The Godfather, which is considered one of the greatest films of all time.
For the performance, he was nominated for Best Actor for the role at the 45th Academy Awards, which were presented on March 27, 1973, at the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion in Los Angeles, California.
But before the ceremony, Brando decided that – as the favorite to win – he would boycott as a protest led by AIM against the ongoing siege at Wounded Knee and his views on how Native Americans were represented in American films.
He called Littlefeather and asked her to appear on his behalf.
"I was a spokesperson, so to speak, for the stereotype of Native Americans in film and television," she later said.

At the ceremony

Littlefeather joined the audience minutes before the award for Best Actor was announced. She was accompanied by Brando's secretary, Alice Marchak, and wore an Apache buckskin dress.
Producer Howard W. Koch, she would later say, told her that she had 60 seconds to deliver the speech or else be removed from the stage; she had planned to read a 4-page speech written by Brando.
The Best Actor award was presented by actors Liv Ullmann and Roger Moore.
After giving brief remarks and announcing the five nominees, they declared Brando to be the winner.
Littlefeather walked on stage and raised her hand to decline the Oscar trophy that Moore offered her.
Deviating from the prepared speech she clutched, she said the following:

Hello. My name is Sacheen Littlefeather.
I'm Apache and I am president of the National Native American Affirmative Image Committee.
I'm representing Marlon Brando this evening, and he has asked me to tell you in a very long speech which I cannot share with you presently, because of time, but I will be glad to share with the press afterwards, that he very regretfully cannot accept this very generous award. And the reasons for this being are the treatment of American Indians today by the film industry – excuse me [boos and cheers] – and on television in movie re-runs, and also with recent happenings at Wounded Knee.
I beg at this time that I have not intruded upon this evening, and that we will in the future, our hearts and our understandings will meet with love and generosity.
Thank you on behalf of Marlon Brando. [applause]

Moore escorted Littlefeather off-stage, past several people critical of her, and to the press. At the press conference, Littlefeather read to journalists the speech that Brando had prepared; The New York Times published the full text the next day.

That Unfinished Oscar Speech
For 200 years we have said to the Indian people who are fighting for their land, their life, their families and their right to be free: ''Lay down your arms, my friends, and then we will remain together.
Only if you lay down your arms, my friends, can we then talk of peace and come to an agreement which will be good for you.''
When they laid down their arms, we murdered them.
We lied to them.
We cheated them out of their lands.
We starved them into signing fraudulent agreements that we called treaties which we never kept.
We turned them into beggars on a continent that gave life for as long as life can remember. And by any interpretation of history, however twisted, we did not do right.
We were not lawful nor were we just in what we did.
For them, we do not have to restore these people, we do not have to live up to some agreements, because it is given to us by virtue of our power to attack the rights of others, to take their property, to take their lives when they are trying to defend their land and liberty, and to make their virtues a crime and our own vices virtues.
But there is one thing which is beyond the reach of this perversity and that is the tremendous verdict of history.
And history will surely judge us.
But do we care?
What kind of moral schizophrenia is it that allows us to shout at the top of our national voice for all the world to hear that we live up to our commitment when every page of history and when all the thirsty, starving, humiliating days and nights of the last 100 years in the lives of the American Indian contradict that voice?
It would seem that the respect for principle and the love of one's neighbor have become dysfunctional in this country of ours, and that all we have done, all that we have succeeded in accomplishing with our power is simply annihilating the hopes of the newborn countries in this world, as well as friends and enemies alike, that we're not humane, and that we do not live up to our agreements.
Perhaps at this moment you are saying to yourself what the hell has all this got to do with the Academy Awards?
Why is this woman standing up here, ruining our evening, invading our lives with things that don't concern us, and that we don't care about?
Wasting our time and money and intruding in our homes.
I think the answer to those unspoken questions is that the motion picture community has been as responsible as any for degrading the Indian and making a mockery of his character, describing his as savage, hostile and evil.
It's hard enough for children to grow up in this world.
When Indian children watch television, and they watch films, and when they see their race depicted as they are in films, their minds become injured in ways we can never know.
Recently there have been a few faltering steps to correct this situation, but too faltering and too few, so I, as a member in this profession, do not feel that I can as a citizen of the United States accept an award here tonight.
I think awards in this country at this time are inappropriate to be received or given until the condition of the American Indian is drastically altered.
If we are not our brother's keeper, at least let us not be his executioner.
I would have been here tonight to speak to you directly, but I felt that perhaps I could be of better use if I went to Wounded Knee to help forestall in whatever way I can the establishment of a peace which would be dishonorable as long as the rivers shall run and the grass shall grow.
I would hope that those who are listening would not look upon this as a rude intrusion, but as an earnest effort to focus attention on an issue that might very well determine whether or not this country has the right to say from this point forward we believe in the inalienable rights of all people to remain free and independent on lands that have supported their life beyond living memory.
Thank you for your kindness and your courtesy to Miss Littlefeather.
Thank you and good night.

This statement was written by Marlon Brando for delivery at the Academy Awards ceremony where Mr. Brando refused an Oscar. The speaker, who read only a part of it, was Shasheen Littlefeather.

Later that night, before she announced the Best Actress winner, Raquel Welch said, "I hope the winner doesn't have a cause."
When Clint Eastwood presented the Best Picture award, he remarked that he was presenting it "on behalf of all the cowboys shot in John Ford westerns over the years."
Michael Caine, the night's co-host, criticized Brando for "Letting some poor little Indian girl take the boos" instead of "[standing] up and [doing] it himself".

Reception and legacy
The audience in the Dorothy Chandler Pavilion was divided between applause and jeers.
Brando and Littlefeather's protest was generally considered inappropriate for the awards ceremony.
"I was distressed that people should have booed and whistled and stomped, even though perhaps it was directed at myself," Brando later told Dick Cavett.
"They should have at least had the courtesy to listen to her."
Her appearance prompted the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences to rule out future proxy acceptance of Academy Awards.
Littlefeather claims that she was blacklisted by the Hollywood community and received threats.
In addition, she says, media reports published several falsehoods, such as that she was not Native American or had rented the outfit for the occasion.
She has said that the federal government encouraged the blacklisting in order to abate Native American activism after Wounded Knee.
The speech was credited with bringing attention back to the Wounded Knee standoff, on which a media blackout had been imposed.
Coretta Scott King called Littlefeather to thank her for the speech.
In 2014, the 87th ceremony of the Academy Awards drew criticism for lack of diversity in nominations; actress Jada Pinkett Smith, who boycotted the ceremony, cited Littlefeather as inspiration to do so.
After giving the speech, Littlefeather spent two days in Los Angeles before returning to San Francisco.
When she visited Marlon Brando's house after the Academy Awards, while they were talking, bullets were fired into his front door.
At age 29 her lungs collapsed, and after recovering, she received a degree in health and a minor in Native American medicine, a practice she had used to recover.
Studying nutrition, she lived in Stockholm for some time and then traveled Europe, interested in the food of other cultures.
Later, she taught at St. Mary's Hospital in Tucson, Arizona, and worked with the Institute of American Indian Arts in Santa Fe.
In 1979, she co-founded the National American Indian Performing Arts Registry, which later helped several actors join the production of Dances with Wolves.
She shared an Emmy Award as an advisor to PBS's Dance in America: Song for Dead Warriors (1984).
She also worked on the PBS shows Remember Me Forever and The Americas Before Columbus (both 1992), and she has produced films on Native American health.
In 2009, she gave testimony in the documentary Reel Injun about Native Americans in film.
She continued doing activism and became a respected member of California's Native American community.
In the 1980s, she led prayer circles for Kateri Tekakwitha, the first Native American Catholic saint.
In 1988, she worked with Mother Teresa helping AIDS patients in hospice care, later founding the American Indian AIDS Institute of San Francisco.
She campaigned against obesity, alcoholism, and diabetes, and specifically assisted Native Americans with AIDS, including her brother.
In 2015, Littlefeather reported that unauthorized persons were using her name and image to raise money for what was ostensibly a fundraiser for the Lakota nation.
However, the money was never donated to any campaign.
In March 2018, a spokesperson announced that Littlefeather had developed stage 4 breast cancer.
As of April 2018, Littlefeather resides in Northern California.

2023.05.26 21:46 Chrissquasi Probable Scam

I purchased jewelry from a seller allegedly based in New Jersey (I’m in New York) with over six thousand 4 star and above reviews on 5/16. I actually read quite a few of the reviews and while there were a couple of the usual delayed delivery complaints most were positive. The estimated delivery date was 5/23-5/26, good enough.
Tracking showed shipped almost immediately with a company called ShipEntegra that apparently used USPS for final delivery. The ShipEntegra tracking showed an origin date and courier acceptance date of 5/1, more than two weeks prior to my purchase but the movement started on 5/23 in a town less than three miles from my address. I was concerned when tracking showed the package moving farther and farther away from my address, four hours away at one point in extreme south New Jersey bordering Delaware.
I contacted the seller using the “help with order” feature and copy/pasted the tracking and asked him or her to look into it please. On 5/26, the last eta for delivery, tracking showed usps delivered the package to a mailbox in Cape May Courthouse, NJ, 178 miles from me. I again wrote to the seller with a copy/paste expressing my concern that someone was getting a freebie jewelry gift and asking how Orangeburg, NY could have been mixed up with the Jersey address. Obviously they had a street name and number too. I triple checked my address on Etsy and it’s still the New York address I’ve had for eight years listed.
Since the seller hadn’t responded even though they were always super quick to offer coupons for any “likes” I decided to try to contact Etsy due to the package having actually been delivered to a wrong address. Unfortunately one cannot get help from support unless the seller ignores you for 48 plus hours after delivery. I googled Etsy’s phone number but the recording sounded super sketchy (I tried twice) so I just hung up. Within ten minutes I got a call from a toll free number with the caller claiming to be Etsy support since I had contacted them twice. I said I hadn’t left a message or even gotten to a message leaving prompt. The person said someone using my account requested the seller change the shipping address. I said it still shows my address on my end and he said that’s because the seller deleted the request after sending so it went back to the default. That since it was my fault I could only be refunded if I secured my account by downloading an app and he would help me. I said I needed to check into this and asked for a number to call him. Back.

2023.05.26 19:51 Kronik352 Greenhouse Flower - REVIEW

Hey fam......
I just reviewed 'Thunderdome' Greenhouse Flower from GoldLeaf. This was the last of 4 strains I ordered, this go around, and I was left....QUITE disappointed!! :(
Not just from THIS review, but from all 4 of them! I wanna say this Thunderdome might have been the best of the 4, and 2 of them were their 'Ideal Cannabis/Indoor Grown' stuff....
I talk about it a bit, in the review above, but I REALLLLLLLY THINK this 'lack of quality' is coming from them....rushing it! They USED TO HAVE some reallly old dates on their stuff. Their flower used to be harvested like a year OR MORE ago, and had been packaged for MONTHS, before you got it......THATS HOW IT USED TO BE.......
These days though, JUST like the 4 batches I got this past delivery, alllll of the flowebatches have extremely new dates......AND IT SHOWS!!
Here's to hoping they 'go back to what got them so popular'
