2023.05.28 04:03 Remarkable-Jury-4078 Hotel recommendations for first time traveler? Prefer a budget of around 200 CAD/150 USD per night.

I am travelling with my wife to Japan next year looking for April-May 2024. We are looking at staying at Shinjuku as online it appears to be the most convenient?
Does anyone have any recommendation on any hotel that is near the subway station around this price point? We are budget conscious so if you have any advice on best times to book tickets or hotels please let me know.

2023.05.28 03:58 Pure-Look374 Town near Asbury Park w Airbnb/ hotel options that’s safe?

Hey wonderful people Im going to Asbury Park for a concert in June, and an Airbnb just cancelled on me. I have never been to Jersey before so am a real rookie. There don’t seem to be any Airbnb options at all in Asbury p and the train station seems to have a rep online for not being safe at night.
Can anyone advise me on towns that are safe enough not more than 30 mins by Uber? Asbury hotels either have terrible reviews or insane costs.
Thanks in advance.
I’m traveling from NYC via train so if anything was remotely near a station on that route that would be awesome but open to any suggestions.
Thanks so much in advance

2023.05.28 03:31 MisterSnippy The Transfer

                                                      The Transfer

    Adrenaline spikes travel through his limbs, dancing across his scales and down his limbs, as he takes his first step onto the pristine concrete platform. As the boundary-line grows nearer he breaks out into a cold-sweat, shaking hands, tingling body. Can't get rid of that [Dangersense] whine, which has been blaring since he got to the Waystation a few hours ago. Screaming warnings for something it doesn't even understand. Annoying. After about fifteen minutes of waiting an announcement finally interrupts his thoughts with a jolt.
    "Transference to Pallass from Atlanta will begin in five minutes, please ensure you are standing within the boundary line and have all luggage secured."
    A few other passengers pass around a nervous look, packing themselves tighter like really eager sardines, trying to ensure minimum risk of injury. Drezill checks religiously to ensure his tail isn't sticking out of the boundary, but he's well within it, still pushing further into the crowd just in case.
    "Transference to Pallass from Atlanta will begin in 30 seconds. Please keep all limbs within the boundary line and secure your luggage."
    Closer to the Transfer. More adrenaline, faster heartrate. Lub dub, lub dub. Somewhere his heart is pounding, but he no longer feels it, clutching his suitcase tighter, rubbing against his scales. [Dangersense] is screaming at him, and he's compelled to let it scream. Oh, god-
    The change is instantaneous. Gone is one Transfer platform, with transparent ad-ridden hologram walls and blue mage-lit lines, replaced with another, almost identical. Probably designed by some evil [Architect] in a stroke of corporate genius to confuse dimwitted passengers into spending more money. It feels like the entire platform heaves a collective sigh of relief as they arrive unscathed, and then he picks up his suitcase and walks out into the Waystation proper.
    Lines of people are strewn throughout the terminal, a series of biological walls, giving up one sardine can for another. The species seen are more varied, less Humans, more Drakes and Gnolls. All either Transferred in or Teleported over from all over the world, all stuck here, placed into queues, surrounded by blue and grey walls, lit by dim MLED light. A [Guard] takes out a handheld device and scans his Chip, holding it in place to get an accurate read, and Drezill stands still, waiting in nervous silence, until he hears the mystical mental beep and the guard nods, directing him to a shorter line, the one that says "Incoming Transference".
    It surprises him that the first thing he feels is alienation. He was always different, being a Drake, but this is different. The [Guard] sits in front of a metal box that has a small flashing green light, information about his entire life being beamed directly into her brain. Her eyes glint in the dim red light, scanning lines of information he can't see.
    "What's your name?"
    He can count the number of times he's said his full name on one hand. It builds a feeling of uncomfortability within him, accompanying already high levels of distress.
    "Drevill Silverwing Williams."
    "Where are you coming from, Mr. Williams?"
    "Atlanta, Georgia, The United States of America."
    A bead of sweat rolls down his forehead, refracting the light, the green blinking pinpoint reflected inside. He knows he's done nothing wrong, but somehow the woman manages to pull any stress he has to the forefront.
    "How long are you planning on staying in Pallass, Mr. Williams?"
    "I plan on living here, I have a work-visa."
    There's a pause, purposefully planned. They sit in silence for a few seconds, no ambient noise, just the sound of him shuffling in his seat, cringing against the cold metal, tail wavering.
    "Purpose of visit?"
    As if he didn't already answer her question.
    "Work. Living here. I repair pseudo-sapients."
    The questioning stops. Fingers twitch, typing something on that invisible interface, then a pause. Door slides open, blinding. No smile.
    "Welcome to Pallass, Mr. Williams."
    There is no city in his sight, in its place is something else, different than any city he's ever seen. Dotting the horizon are endless lines of buildings and megastructures, surrounding a stone square, like a precious gem surrounded by a jewelry box. The sky is so high here, but still the skyscrapers push upwards, ever reaching hands searching for limit, and finding none. The amount of lights is overwhelming, all sorts of colours spilling out over the landscape below, looking more like stars than the ones that hang in the sky above.
    For a moment his breath catches, head involuntarily moving closer to the window, straining to pick out all the details. Far down below is a different world. Similar, yet so different than his own, his own? So different than any other. Millions of people living and working here in a world that 200 years ago hadn't even industrialized.
    The magilev cab skitters past a massive glowing purple-scaled Drake that raises a can of Coca-Cola™ to her lips, before taking a dignified sip. She smiles and speaks, the words captured and deposited into his brain via the Chip. "Mmm, you just can't beat the taste of Coca-Cola™! It's as fine as any gemstone found in Salazsar!" Her voice caresses his mind, making his throat feel a bit parched.
    "The city sure is something, huh?"
    The Gnoll [Driver] speaks and motions a hand at the window, illuminated by passing purple light, startling Drevill into conversation.
    "Huh? Oh. I've never seen any city like this, even on Earth. Everything is so... packed together."
    The Gnoll grunts ambiguously. "Drakes sure love their cities, no offense. They say Pallass is the most urbanized city in the Worlds, but it's something else to see it."
    A pause in the air, contemplative.
    "Are you not from here?" Drevill queries.
    "Me? No way. I'm from Oteslia. Lived here about 10 years, but I'm planning on moving back some day. Problem is so much more work is here."
    The [Driver] doesn't say another word, just shakes his head, and they continue on in silence, broken up only by the sputtering engine and dying rasp of distant advertisements.
    His form is dwarfed by the buildings around him, vision denied even a horizon-line, every space covered up by more things. Massive statues sit, watching over sections of the city, stoic. A new one is being constructed, carefully built and placed. Meant to last thousands of years. His Chip wants to speak up, proffering information on the origins of, and identities of, each looming figure. He ignores it.
    High above are a few blinking dots, more magilev cars heading to destinations. Beneath his feet a rumble, slithering trains snaking beneath the city to all parts, fast and efficient. He feels out of place, too many Drakes, less Humans. Ironic, but that's just how it is. Drevill hopes he'll get used to it, at least they speak the same language.
    Winding streets lead away from the city center, hotels fading away, more sparingly placed now. Like a good Drake, Drezill follows the line. Tracing it through backstreets, around corners, past herds of pedestrians, until the apartment complex appears. And complex is the right word for it. Skills give rise to odd building codes, structures that are safer than they should be, safer than they appear to be. The building seems to lean outwards, lots of concrete, tiny balconies. He sees the top of a few Drake's heads poking above the balconies, lazing about, a few Gnolls enjoying the evening.
    The front door opens, and he enters, sneaking through the closing gap left by a departing Human. The lobby is tiny, probably to leave room for more apartments, just staffed by a pseudo-sapient, anyone with a Class and a Skill working somewhere better. He gets on an elevator and rides it up, 14th floor, room 8. It glides up stopping at the 14th floor, doors open with a ding, nobody outside. Drezill steps off furtively, glancing down the hallways, still clutching the suitcase, it rolls conspicuously.
    When he closes the door he breathes a sigh of relief. Finally that's over with. He plops the suitcase down and opens it, not a normal suitcase in actuality, but a cleverly disguised suitcase of holding. He heaves and pulls out a body, a Drake looking very much like himself, the spitting image, in fact. It looks real, and with a few Skills, it will become real. He takes a second to unpack everything else, before copying his relevant Chip data and inserting it into the pseudo-sapient. With any luck it will last a few months, and a few months is all he needs. After a moment, he leaves the room and rides the elevator down, passing by identical floors and identical rooms.
    Ding. Once again in the quiet lobby, soon replaced by bustling crowds, magilev cars, and rumbling trains. A few Drakes and Gnolls grab kebabs from a stall sitting on the side of the street, laughing and eating, timeless. Everywhere he looks are buildings and people. Drezill picks a direction, then calls a cab and gets on. The [Driver] doesn't even look up, just asks:
    "Where to?"
    The door slides shut, cab hovering in place, for a moment cut off from the outside world, as if separated by time and not just place.
    "To Liscor, please."

2023.05.28 03:21 DarkWolf2017 What are the Pros and Cons of City vs Suburban life?

I currently live in a suburb (Mandeville, a suburb of New Orleans). I see how suburban life is, but it can feel dull sometimes. We don’t get the conventions (my gf and I like anime conventions), We don’t have malls, and my chosen field once I graduate (software engineering) is near nonexistent outside of cities. What are the pros and cons of life in a city over the suburbs? Bonuses for vice versa.
Also the main cities I’m looking at potentially going to once I’m done with my software engineering degree are Fort Worth, Orlando, Pittsburgh, Atlanta, Aurora (IL), northern Chicago, etc.

2023.05.28 02:59 autobuzzfeedbot 23 Useless Disney Facts That Are A Lot More Interesting Than These People Gave Them Credit For

  1. "Michelle Pfeiffer was one of the performers for Alice in the Main Street Electrical Parade in the 1970s."
  2. "How about the bullet hole in the glass above the ballroom scene in The Haunted Mansion?"
  3. "There are at least four (unsure of the number since 2018 when I last worked there) beagles that sniff the Disneyland hotels for bedbugs almost daily. They're amazing little sniffers and loved by all that work with them or have been honored to meet them. Disneyland makes good and sure no bedbugs come bugging ya!"
  4. "Doritos were invented at Disneyland."
  5. "The Jungle Cruise is behind the stores on Main Street. So all the trees you see over the tops of the building are jungle on the other side. It's most notable next to the fire station. Just a weird little tidbit that puts the size of the park in perspective."
  6. "Disney parks use a grayish green color nicknamed 'go away green' to camouflage things like show buildings and electrical boxes that they don't want you to notice in the park."
  7. "The letters that spelled out 'C-A-L-I-F-O-R-N-I-A' at California Adventure are now in Sacramento at Cal Expo. This is my favorite Disney fact. I grew up climbing on those letters and now I live close to Sacramento."
  8. "I’m Korean American, and I remember there was a 'Korean Day' at the parks in the ’80s! With a parade of Korean Celebrities! The park was packed with Korean People!"
  9. "A lot of people know about the Disneyland cats! They are an integral part of the Disneyland ecosystem. But what you might not know is that cats that are considered 'too friendly' are adopted out! Usually, Disney works with the local shelters and rescues to adopt out the super friendly kitties!"
  10. "You used to be able to buy bras on Main Street in Disneyland!"
  11. "Walt Disney designed the push-flap garbage can. He took it to manufacturers and everyone thought it was useless so he never filed for a patent."
  12. "New Orleans Square at Disneyland cost the same amount of money as the Louisiana Purchase."
  13. "There was a hostile Yippie takeover of Tom Sawyer's Island at Disneyland in 1970 that effectively shut the park down for one out of the only four times the park has been closed."
  14. "Back in 1999, they put a cast member in the haunted house dressed in a suit of armor. He prowled the area near the corridor of doors and his job was to sneak up on the doom buggies to scare passengers. It did not last because people would get scared and punch the knight or he would discover people doing intimate things in the buggies. I was on it with my dad, the knight scared the bejesus out of me and I screamed really loud and startled him too."
  15. "There are small offices in the castle. Source: Worked in one above Bibbidi Bobbidi Boutique."
  16. "In 2004, Cary 'Jay' Sharp won a charity auction to become the Haunted Mansion’s 'official' 1,000th ghost. His honorary tombstone can be found near the Phantom Five at Disneyland with the text 'JAY, doctor lawyer legal clerk, forever buried in his work.'"
  17. "The singing bust on the haunted mansion that people think looks like Walt Disney is actually the guy who voiced Tony the Tiger (Thurl Ravenscroft). He did many other voices throughout Disneyland, too."
  18. "One of the more well-known ones, but it's still fun to drop on people who aren't park regulars or don't know about it. Haunted Mansion is mostly a facade building, with the stretching room (elevator) taking guests below ground, then they walk through a tunnel (double-image portrait gallery) that passes under the park's train tracks and into a whole other building for the majority of the Doom Buggy ride."
  19. "Bank of America was the sponsor of It's a Small World when it opened in 1966 at Disneyland. Louis B. Lundborg, the bank's board chairman, sat in the first boatload with Walt and some children."
  20. "On Main Street, on the right-hand side facing the castle, there's a little inlet roughly halfway through, by where the Starbucks is. There's usually some seating back there and that's where Disneyland's lockers are. Right next to the lockers, there's a brick wall with a water fountain. This wall was where they tested the look of various bricks while constructing Disneyland. One side has very smooth and regular bricks, the other has uneven and mismatched bricks, so they could see which style they preferred. When construction was finished, they either didn't have the money to replace the wall or left it there as a little nod to the construction efforts."
  21. "When I worked in the parking structure I found out there are way more plainclothes officers and security guards at the park than I previously thought."
  22. "Before popcorn was in the parks they used to sell peanuts but the shells were so messy so they switched to popcorn!!"
  23. Finally, "My 1992 season pass to Disneyland cost $250. It was a laminated card with my photo and was called a 'Disneyland Picture Passport.' It was good for the following 365 days, had no blackout days, and included parking."

2023.05.28 02:56 Apprehensive_Plum201 I I I prompt

Is this a real podcast?
I'm sorry I wasn't I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I I'm gonna tell you the truth. When I opened up the first store, I went to Staples and Office Max and all the places you buy back-to-school supplies and I bought them all out of flash drives and I would sell them to people at school. And they're like, "Oh, you're actually doing it, bro. "Like, this is a real deal." So what do you know, I sold out of everything in two weeks. Now what? I have to restock and I'm out of money. And I don't really, I'm like, "I don't really have $100,000 to buy more." So I was like, "Well, okay, I guess I need to go out "and find another investor." I went to a guy who owned a bunch of businesses and I got him to give me a loan for $20,000. So now I had $20,000. I went to a custom packaging company in Los Angeles called AJM Packaging and I said, "Look, I have $20,000 "and this vision to start a video store. "Can you give me a net 90?" And that's like an old business term that I learned years ago that basically means like, we're gonna send you a box of our products, you sell them, and then pay us back in 90 days. So they said, "Sure, we'll give you $20,000 worth of videos." I put together a big press release, and sent it out to like the news stations. (laughs) This was like in the early '90s, okay?
But how did you go from using your LinkedIn to sell a 60-year-old?
No, no, no, no, I didn't sell the videos on LinkedIn. I'm saying I would get orders for $1000, $2000, $3000, $4000, $5000.
So the method was you would identify potential prospects using LinkedIn and just send them an email or message or something.
Yeah, you see on LinkedIn, you'll see, like let's say you have 10 contacts or something like that. It'll say, it'll have in your thing, it'll say they were a third degree connection and you can see what groups they belong to. You can see if you share a lot of similar contacts. So I just email them and say, hey, listen, I've got this promotion. I work at a marketing company and I
think we can help you increase your web presence, grow your business. And people just started signing up and then it went from there.
What was the like, hey, you're not bad at this. Like I should look into this social media thing. (laughs)
Yeah, I mean, when I started my business, I really, I was all over the place. And I'm talking like 2009, like in 2009, I wasn't really doing much more than building social profiles and posting on them and some light engagement. That was really it. But then I realized it's not, just about like, the act of social media. It's not just like creating social media accounts for people. It's about building a brand and being able to reach people and creating an impact and using social media to do that. And so that was the start of that path. And then I just started to get more and more into it. And then I went through the whole like, Facebook page thing, which is a whole other journey. So I did that and then I think it was really 2015, I started investing a lot of money into Facebook ads. And when I first started, I had a lot of success in a very short amount of time. So then I started teaching people how to do that. I launched a product called Fan Page Domination. We did $6 million in sales in the first week, which was amazing. And then from there, my software started taking off. I launched a software called Social Ad Classroom, which was a webinar software for Facebook and YouTube Live. And we had thousands of people buying that at $997. We sold that one for $997. Then I launched Influencer Ignited. So I've got my own Facebook group. I started doing mastermind groups and coaching. I was able to replace my salary with speaking gigs, teaching people on webinars and selling high ticket items. So now we have a software business. I have a team of 11 people that work for me and I have a few other employees for other various things as well. And so all in all, it's been quite the journey to get to this point and it's been a lot of hard work and it's still a lot of hard work. I'm not sure what's gonna happen over the next few years or anything like that, but I'm enjoying the journey, enjoying helping people out. You asked me for a couple of tips and tricks that people can do. And I would say that one of the things that I've found to be really helpful when I'm trying to figure out how to learn something is actually not to jump online and start Googling, but instead to go to YouTube and watch tutorial videos. Because if you're like me and you can see it and hear it, then it clicks a lot better than reading a book. So I started watching YouTube videos. I learned how to code a little bit on YouTube. I learned a little bit of Photoshop on YouTube and a lot of things on YouTube. And then I started this membership, which I learned how to do on YouTube and from other people that were teaching me how to do it. I didn't invent it. I don't own the rights to it. I just started to apply it to a business idea that I had that made sense. And it grew really fast. And then I sold that company last year, December of 2020. And so now I have more free time on my hands. So I started YouTube channel and that's just kind of taken off and I'm really enjoying the podcast because I get to meet great people like you and just share some insights that I've learned along the way. And so yeah, that's kind of been my journey to
this point. That's awesome. So you got the taste of this kind of internet world, digital marketing. You had a passion for technology. You did some internships. You taught yourself some things on YouTube. You created some courses. You've built a big following and now you're monetizing with the podcast, correct?
Yeah, absolutely.
Yeah, so what does the future hold for you and for your business?
Yeah, so I really want to double down on the podcast. I've been doing a lot of interviews and having a lot of fun with that, but I want to take it to the next level. I'm in the process of planning my next level. That is where it is headed right now.
Awesome. So we talked about a lot of things today. What's one thing that you want to leave the audience with? If they were to take away one thing from our conversation today, what would that be?
This is a little bit of a shift in direction of where we've been talking about, but when we were talking about doing a podcast, you asked me, "Why do you want to do a podcast?" And I said, "Well, I want to impact people. "I want to give people a new perspective on life. "I want people to know that they're not alone "and that other people have gone through some of the same things "and have figured it out "and can share their experiences with others "so they don't feel alone." And that's really what I want people to know about me is that you're not alone in this world. And if you're feeling overwhelmed, if you're feeling like, "You know what? "This sucks, this coronavirus, COVID stuff sucks," I want you to know that you're not alone. And there are people out there who've gone through the same thing, are going through the same thing, who can help you navigate through it. So if you're going through a difficult time, you're not alone. Reach out to me, I'm happy to talk to you, but also reach out to the people around you who love you and care about you, and just know that there are people out there who care. And if you're going through a good time and things are going great for you, also reach out to people who are struggling and lend a helping hand and help them out, because we're all in this together, and that's how we're going to get through this and make the world a better place.
That's such a powerful message, and I absolutely agree with you. One of the things I love about you is your positive energy. And that positive energy, I'm sure, resonates in everything that you do. So keep that up. And I guess my next question is, how do you stay so positive? What's your secret sauce?
Well, I just have this deep faith in God, and so I know that everything works out for a reason, and there's a bigger plan, and you know, the person who was the biggest failure is the person that gives up. And so I just refuse to give up, and I think of life, you know, like a marathon. I mean, if you're at mile one and you want to quit, how foolish is that? I mean, you don't know how long the race is, but it's not mile one. And so I look at that as my life. I mean, there's no point in quitting because I'm nowhere near the finish line yet. I got a long way to go, so I've got to keep going, and just having that faith in yourself and knowing that if you stick with it long enough, you'll find a way to succeed.
That's amazing. And
I think that positive mindset, and that persistence is one thing that separates you from other people, but also what you say there about your grandfather, it sounds like he was an amazing person.
He was an incredible person, and his name was Cecil Milton Chester. He died when he was 42 years old. And so I was like nine at the time. And so my son's middle name is Milton. It's a family tradition. So my son's name is Ian Milton Boyle. And I know I got him because my grandpa, he was amazing. He had all these stories and he always had a smile on his face. And I would say, you know, I would say, "How are you doing today, Papa?" And he'd say, "Better, better, better." And it didn't matter how he felt. He always said he was better, better, better. And I thought to myself, you know, that was pretty amazing. This guy could be in the worst possible pain ever, and he would still say he's better. And I thought, you know, I'm going to live my life that way. So I did. I decided I'm going to choose to be better, to have a better attitude, to have a better outlook on life, and always try to see the positive in things. And, you know, it's, it's, it's really helped me in my life. So that's, you know, I would say that's my biggest, my biggest learning. And I also say this, you know, I heard a pastor say this a while ago. He said, you know, a lot of times in life, we're looking for the green light. And, you know, we're trying to make sure everything's perfect. We're waiting for things to be perfect. And he says, well, you know, sometimes it's not about a green light, but it's just, you know, a yellow light. Sometimes you just have to get started. And, you know, you might be scared, but you just have to get started and do the work. And it's just like a very simple way of kind of looking at life. Like if we all wait for, you know, our perfect opportunity, we're never gonna get anything done. So I'm always a big believer in just starting. You know, you've gotta just get started.
That's awesome. That's a great way to finish. So what's your favorite entrepreneur story? Now it doesn't have to be the biggest success, but maybe just an entrepreneur that you love what they're doing or you love their business. So this could be someone, you know, it could be somebody local, it could be somebody big, whoever.
I know.
Your turn.
My turn. So, okay. There's a guy named Jeremy Cowart. You heard of Jeremy Cowart?
He's a photographer. He's also one of the most successful photographers in the world. He does amazing portraits. I started following him on Instagram maybe five years ago, maybe six, and I was just like, this guy is amazing. And just watching how he transformed. And now he does hotel, motel design and art and stuff like that. But what he did is he set up like a 30 day series, well a 365 day series of photos. And each day he would do a different type of photography. So like one day he would do just shadows, another day he would do, I don't know, just patterns, whatever. He had all these different ideas. But what he was doing is he was posting his photos on Instagram every single day. So that's something that I wanna start doing as well. I actually start tonight
. And so, just to make myself a better photographer and just to challenge myself to look at things differently. And what's happened is now this guy, he's on YouTube, he does a podcast. And so if I do that every day, I'm also gonna get better at communicating with people and talking to people. So what I've found is this has helped me build my confidence to come on the live and do this because I've practiced a lot. I've done 57 of these now. And so, but it's just the practice. It's just the getting in there and doing it and learning from it. And I found that my guests are really grateful and appreciative for it. They really enjoy it. And they're able to get a taste of me as a speaker before they ever get on a call with me. So, I mean, there's just, it's just so valuable to get started. It doesn't have to be perfect. You don't have to have everything all together. But it's just the action, the taking the action, you know, and you'll just figure it out along the way. So, those are kind of my tips for people.
Fantastic. Well, we've got some questions from the attendees. So, let's kind of jump into those. I know we're starting to get a little bit short on time. We've got maybe five or 10 minutes left.
So, we'll jump into these. One of the questions that came up is, you know, how long should a course be? And are people willing to watch a long course versus something that's shorter?
You know, we've done it both ways. It really kind of depends. I feel like shorter courses are kind of like the current trend. People want information really quickly. They don't necessarily have a lot of time. They're busy. They're running a business. They've got kids. They've got a lot going on. So, I feel like a lot of people are favoring shorter courses. So, for instance, you know, like a course that's maybe like three to four weeks long. But I do still think that there is a place for longer courses. For instance, you know, with Power Editor, I actually found that people liked the more in-depth 12-week course because they could actually go back, you know, at their own pace and do it. But I would say, you know, 30 days is a great timeframe for a course.
Perfect. And the last question for you is, do you have a favorite Facebook advertising campaign that you've run for yourself or for a client? And if you can share a little bit about the results and why it was your favorite.
Ooh, that's a tough one. There's been so many good campaigns that I've had. I think one of my favorites was working with my husband's business and it was creating a quiz. I actually took my course topic, and we're not gonna talk about what that was, and we turned it into a quiz. And so, with a quiz, what you're able to do is take the top three to five pain points or objections that people have when it comes to purchasing your product or service, and you turn that into a quiz. So, you start the quiz by asking them some questions about their specific problem, what they're going through, what their biggest challenge is, and then you give them three different possible outcomes. And based on their answer, you kind of guide them through the quiz. So, you ask them, "Do you want to work on this problem, "or this problem, or this problem?" And then you can give them a result. And that result is not only valuable to
them because they're getting the solution they're looking for, but it's also very valuable to you because you can start to see what are some of the main reasons people are coming to me, or what are the main objections that they have, and you can take that and then tweak your marketing messaging. And that's a lot of what I did with my program was I would create new ads and I would have a different headline for every different pain point. And then we would run those ads and we would see which ones got the best engagement and then you have that data to go off of and you can say, "Okay, well people are responding better to this messaging or this problem that I can help solve." And then from there you can just dial in your targeting, dial in your messaging, and then that's when you really start to see the massive results. And that's how I was able to turn it into a seven-figure business, which, you know, within the first year and a half was pretty incredible. So that's definitely my favorite strategy. And I still use quizzes to this day. I think they're awesome.
Absolutely. And I really like quizzes. I'm glad you mentioned it because that's one of those things that not a lot of people are using right now, but it can be very effective if you do it right. Like you said, you want to give them a reason to want to engage with it. And by addressing pain points or questions or frustrations, it's a great way to get people to opt into your list as well because they're interested in that topic. So then you can nurture them and build a relationship with them and then make them a customer down the line. So that's a great strategy. Thanks for sharing that. All right, so last question for you. I know you're a super busy guy, but do you have time to listen to podcasts? And if so, are there any that you like to listen to on a regular basis?
I listen to a lot of audio books. I think that's kind of my thing. I've just finished actually an audio book called, "You're Not So Smart." And it's all about the cognitive biases that we have as humans. And it was very fascinating. I was actually thinking about using some of the content to talk about in the next episode of my podcast because I think it would be very helpful for people to hear the different biases that we have. And as humans, we have like 100 different cognitive biases that can really influence our decisions and the way we think about things. And so it was a really good book. So I highly recommend that one. It's called "You're Not So Smart." But yeah, I mean, I love listening to all different kinds of podcasts. I listen to, I don't know, some of the entrepreneurial ones, Amy Porterfield, Brendan Burchard. Sometimes I listen to Joe Rogan. He's not always the best person to listen to, but there are certain episodes that I like. Yeah, I listen to all kinds of podcasts.
Fantastic. You mentioned a few people there that I know of and I've heard some episodes of Joe Rogan. There's some really interesting people that he interviews.
Yeah, yeah.
He's got a great following and he seems like he's really enjoying it.
He does, and that's, I think, why he does it. He just loves to learn from people. So I think that's his main motivation.
Yeah, so is there anything else that you'd like to add before we finish up, Taki? Any other, you know, mistakes or issues that you see people make or things you just want to say before we go?
You know, I think one thing I
would say is that being a good marketer is really about being a good communicator. And it's all about building relationships and connections with people. And the way to do that is to really make sure you're being authentic. You know, there's so much noise on social media and people can spot a fake a mile away. So I think it's just important to be genuine, to be authentic, to show up as yourself and just be a real person. And, you know, people are going to be much more likely to connect with you and resonate with you if you do that.
Yes, it's so true. You know, I think a lot of people try and put up this facade of, you know, that they're perfect and they've got it all together, but people can see right through that. So it's just, it's really refreshing when you meet somebody who's like real and down to earth and just doing their thing. And they're okay with that. So I agree with that for sure. So Megan, where can people go to find you and learn more about your programs?
Yeah, so they can go to Facebook and look me up, Megan Anderson Consulting. My website is They can find me on LinkedIn. I'm on Instagram and Twitter and I'm pretty easy to find. So yeah.
Nice. And then I'll put all those links in the show notes too. But yeah, so definitely follow Megan. She puts out some really great content. So thank you so much for being on the show. It was really great to have you on today.
Thank you so much, Jillian. It was great being here. I really appreciate you inviting me on your show.

2023.05.28 01:50 lilliezellie Longshot - location help 1970

This is a huge longshot because I don't have much at all here, but I am wondering if any locals are able to figure out where my grandparents got married in 1970.
I just have small clips from an old film, nearly none of it was salvageable, but I got blurry screenshots from the church they got married at and the place they went after (hotel or apts?)
The first is the church they got married at. I only have pictures of the doors as people came out (these are from an tiny splice of a film I found). It would have been a Catholic church. We have nothing else...
Church 1 Church 2 Church Corner Just left of Church doors Street Church is on
Also wondering if anyone recognizes the below. It might be a hotel or apartments.
Apartments 1 Apartments 2
I know there's not much here, but had to give it a try. My grandparents/parents are gone and I have nothing other than this tiny film clip to clue me in on anything. Thanks for any help!

2023.05.28 01:04 Nblearchangel What’s the craziest thing you’ve done for love? (Part 2)

Part 1
I’ve been out dancing several times after that night and in comparison I’ve had a miserable time each and every time. Between girls thinking they’re top shit when they know more than me or giving me a hard time because I don’t know how to lead… I actually feel worse off after going. Honestly though it’s made me appreciate what I had my first night out.
J has stayed in constant contact. I’m very active on Instagram and it gives her an opportunity to interact and say hi. And she does. She’ll like and emote things to initiate conversations and I always “take the bait”. I enjoy talking to her. Being able to use google translate is such a blessing and I love it when she compliments me in Spanish… or even just talks to me in the language I’m determined to learn. And I told her as much. I encourage it and she obliges.
Late one night I “confessed” to her that dancing without her hasn’t been the same; In Spanish because the majority of our conversations are in Spanish. I was at the club I met her at, sitting on the side lines watching everybody else have fun because I couldn’t find anybody to dance with and I was thinking about her. Again.
I told her later that night, “nada es el mismo sin mi droga”. (Nothing is the same without my drug). She responded quickly asking me which drug, I’m sure she was worried I was into coke or worse but instead I said, “tu, tu eres mi droga” (you, you are my drug). Queue the emotes and love emojis.
Ive entertained the idea of coming to visit her already but keep in mind, Ive been in the process of planning a trip to Guatemala even before I met J. My Spanish teacher (O) lives near Antigua and I was already planning on doing a week of immersion classes anyway. I’ve known O for almost ten years and this is the first time I’ve been serious about doing it. It just so happens I met a cute Colombian girl two months before I was planning to go.
I already had a $60 flight voucher for Volaris (a Latin American airline) because a flight to Cabo got delayed in March so this trip was kinda falling into place. Im going to be staying with a family in Guatemala and room and board is only gonna be a few hundred. I get discounts for a major hotel chain and can get nights as cheap as $50 a night. I can also pack up and leave on the least expensive day of the week because my schedule allows it. So why not.
Back story: In the middle of 2022 I was diagnosed with cancer. I’m bipolar and because I was taking lithium for years I developed a condition that dysregulated my calcium levels. While they were trying to diagnose that they found cancerous nodules on my thyroid. Fast forward to the beginning of this year and a successful surgery, I’m cured and cancer free. Since then I’ve been to San Diego, Cabo, decided to stop looking for a job in my career field because the unsuccessful job hunt was giving me anxiety and decided to go back to doing something I love. Bartending.
I’m making good money, I have benefits, a 401k, discounts on sweet hotels and I’m enjoying life to the fullest. I just moved into a swank part of town at a deep discount and I’m walking to work every day. Recently the weather has been something out of a movie, just perfect every day of the week for weeks on end since I moved in… and I’ve been out biking or at clubs / dancing pretty much every day. I might not be working a job in my chosen career field but I’ll be damned if I’m not enjoying life.
I’ve never been to Colombia and this may be the last chance I get for quite a while. Worst case scenario even if this doesn’t turn into anything I have a local from Bogata to give me travel advice and I can find a plan B once I’m down there. Guatemala? Colombia? Porque no los dos? Best case scenario I get closer to becoming bilingual, get a chance to see even more parts of the world and continue a summer romance. What’s not to love about that?
So, back to our story: Enter stage left: This cute Colombian. J - I talked to her on the phone yesterday for two hours and I’ll be honest, it was tough. If she really is as patient as she seems (she said today she was simply born with it) she’ll have the patience for me to hack my way through learning Spanish which I intend to do anyway because I want to be bilingual. The more perspectives I can bring into my life the better. My Spanish wasn’t quite good enough to have a deep conversation yesterday but I was able to glean a few things. She has family in America and travels here quite a bit. She also has a good job working at a hospital where she lives in Bogatá as a physical therapist and a life in Colombia she doesn’t want to leave.
O is of course very familiar with immigration laws and things surrounding Latin America and she seems to think this is genuine interest. She said that because she has family in America she’s less likely to need me for a green card (even if she wanted to move here) and because she has a good job she doesn’t need my money. So what else is there except maybe she’s lonely? Let’s think about this.
J claims she wants to work on her English but she talks to me almost exclusively in Spanish. She rarely speaks to me in English but she does when she wants to make a point clear to me. I told her the other day that I love it when she speaks to me in Spanish and so she does. Like I said, I encourage it. She’s told me I can call her whenever I want to practice my Spanish and I took her up on the opportunity yesterday. And what I found out completely changed my view of the situation.
She currently lives at home with her parents and supports them now that they’re retired. She has a great job as a physical therapist that she loves. She has a car. She’ll be working on a masters soon and she owns multiple properties around Bogatá and rents them out for side income. She even has a third property under construction and it’ll be ready to rent out in 2026. She’s living like a queen down there. She’s set. Can’t blame her for not wanting to leave that behind.

2023.05.27 23:56 TurkMcGill Boss wanted me to buy a car... to work longer hours... for no extra pay

This happened about ten years ago. I was working at a large(ish) software company and one day my boss called me into his office. He said that the project I was working on was in serious trouble and he needed me to "step up" and save it.
I told him that I was already working full-time, and I would need to start working extra hours to get things back on track. Unfortunately, I lived about an hour away and I took the bus to work. Due to the limited bus hours, there was no way for me stay at work longer; so I politely asked if the company could rent me a car, or maybe put me up in a hotel near the office.
My boss *laughed* at my suggestions. Then he told me to just buy a second car.
I asked him, "You want me to buy a new car, pay for gas, toll fees, maintenance, and city parking just so I can work longer hours for no extra pay?" (I was on salary.)
He thought for a moment, then he said, "You can always take a cab home and charge the company." So that's what I did. For the next three months I took a cab home... 5 to 6 nights per week... at nearly $100 per trip, including my generous tip. Would have been cheaper to rent me a car.
I was making pretty good progress but then our new studio VP, not liking where the project was after over a year in development, tried to put me on a PIP (performance improvement plan).
So I quit.

2023.05.27 23:24 SEM3ND3MON AITA for giving my roommates guest house rules and threatening to ask her to leave?

I (20f) am a college student living in a student apartment near my campus. The lease was signed with one of my best friends, her friend, and a random girl her friend picked online (I know, a little complicated). The roommate picked online has been incredibly disrespectful to me specifically all year, as well as overstepped multiple boundaries. She smokes inside of our apartment, causing it to smell violently loud all day (coming from a very 420 friendly girl). Like, I feel sick by the smell of my house sometimes. One time she brought a dog into our apartment without consent and abused it, like literally, left it in the middle of our living room and refused to feed it or take it out so it smelled like pee everywhere. I reported this after she continuously said she’d get rid of the dog for days. Ever since, she’s screamed at me over little things and threatened me. Not to mention she NEVER cleans, our kitchen smells rotten 90% of the time. This is only a few small things that make her impossible to deal with. Right now, I’m staying at the apartment alone because it’s summer break so my roommates are visiting home. This particular roommate decided to give someone I don’t know a key to our apartment without telling me while she is out of the country. I feel as though I should’ve been asked for consent for this, as I pay to be here. She does not have somewhere else to say (except a hotel). This person stays in our house, uses our space, invites people over, and changes my AC settings. I left a note to this person that explains she cannot touch my AC settings, as she does not pay to live here, she cannot touch food if she is unsure who paid for it, she cannot have other strangers in this house, and she cannot smoke indoors. My roommate that invited her here texted me and said that I am being mean and that this girl is “sweet but a psycho” so I should try to be nice. I feel as though I have no obligation to be nice when I have been blind sighted. AITA for threatening to have this person kicked out of my house by the leasing office?

2023.05.27 22:53 lisztomania7 Amex Platinum Lounge Access Question - Paying w/different corporate card

I have a work trip upcoming in August, and all my travel expenses (flight, hotel, etc.) will need to be paid with my corporate card, which is an Amex Green card.
I have a Amex Platinum card that I got mainly for the hefty SUB last year. Will my status as a Platinum cardholder and the event that I have a Delta flight on that day allow me access to Delta’s SkyLounge? Or, would the flight actually have had to have been paid for with my Platinum card?
I’m assuming that the Platinum card & same-day Delta flight (paid for w/Amex Green corporate card) will get me into the SkyLounge, but I was curious if anyone else can confirm or deny based on their experience.
I’ve never visited a lounge before. I’m based out of Atlanta, so I’m assuming I’ll be flying Delta + there are lots of Delta lounges.
Thanks in advance!!

2023.05.27 22:44 Fedoradwarf [TOMT] [Movie] Film About a Man and a Woman and a Wine Shop

I remember watching this film maybe two years ago. I think the film followed a man and he had just travelled to Italy or France. At some point in his journey at the beginning of the film, he sees a woman. I believe he keeps bumping into her, when finally at a bus stop, he accompanies her to dinner before he goes off to his hotel. At dinner, she speaks with the waitor in a different language and the man's trying to charm her and she's having none of it.
I don't really remember what happens in the middle of the film but at some point the woman goes to this vineyard/wine shop and I think the guy she met is working there giving tours. I think potentially they get into a bit of a relationship and then there's a fight and they stop speaking to each other.
Near the end of the film theres this outdoor party/dinner going on at night with fairy lights around and they're both there. I think at this point they realise they're in love and resume the relationship.
I'm sure about the two going to dinner together near the beginning and the dinner party near the end. Everything else is a bit faded so may not be completely accurate :')

2023.05.27 22:36 PollyTLHist1849 Down with the Traitors, and Up with the Stars!: The Midterms of 1794 A More Perfect Union

Down with the Traitors, and Up with the Stars!: The Midterms of 1794 A More Perfect Union
1792 had been a gruelling campaign, but ultimately, Benedict Arnold pulled through. He lost the popular vote by a wide margin due to Paine's incredible popularity among farmers. In the electoral college, on the other hand, Arnold was the clear choice for Chief Consul.
The results of the Election of 1792.
However, though Paine lost the Chief Consular elections, he would be going to the Liberty Manor, in the American capital of New York City. Due to the Jefferson Gambit, an attempt to put Jefferson in the Manor, Thomas Paine received the second most votes. Thomas Paine would be elected as Benedict Arnold's Vice Consul.
In the coming years, the two of them would have astounding differences. Paine was the spokesperson of the farmers, while Arnold was viewed as the man who scorched their farms and plundered their cities. Furthermore, in Jefferson's absence, John Jay was appointed Secretary of State, giving the cabinet a clear Federalist lean. The Fraunces Tavern Conspiracy wouldn't be revealed for several years.
Paine wished to see Westsylvania as its own state. However, as the Vice Consul, his powers were limited. Instead, he used his limited influence to encourage a simple compromise. The capital of Pennsylvania would be moved to Pittsburgh, firmly near Westsylvanian lands. Furthermore, the Agrarians and Republicans would work together to repeal the Whiskey Tax.
Celebrations upon the repeal of the Whiskey Tax.
The Hamilton Plan, Round II
Hamilton was pleased to see a plurality in the Senate. The House, on the other hand, was dominated by the Agrarian Justice Party. Though Hamilton was fearful, ironically, they would be instrumental in his plans.
The Agrarian Justice Party actually supported a bank. They believed it would stabilize the so-called "currency anarchy" plaguing the frontier. Many Agrarians also fiercely opposed the Republican reliance on metallic currency, believing that paper fiat currency was what's right for farmers. Most farmers agreed, despite their loathing of the Federalists. When it came to funding the Bank, and America itself, Hamilton argued for tariffs. Paine had a radical idea: a citizens' dividend. However, such frivolities would have to wait.
Hamilton meets with several Agrarians, seeking to pass the Bank Charter Act.
After the meeting, Paine promised to encourage the Agrarians to vote for the bank charter. In a landslide vote, the national bank was chartered. In exchange, Hamilton forced the few Federalists in Virginia to cast a tie-breaking vote. The Eleventh Amendment had passed, and slavery's days were numbered. This would not go well down south.
South Carolina ratifies secession from the Union.
The south believed that they were no longer represented by the government, and so elected to split. South Carolina, Georgia, and North Carolina, all together, split to establish the Confederate States of Columbia.
Blue = Union, Green = Confederacy
War Plan White
Benedict Arnold didn't care much about slavery. However, he despised traitors. Arnold quickly levied a standing army, calling up the militias to his side. The militias of the south were organized into the Columbian Grand Army. Virginia's militia was split in two, half deserting to the Columbians and the other remaining loyal to the union.
Around this time, a militia leader known as Andrew Jackson proclaimed the Franklin Free State, supposedly the newest state in the Union. Many frontiersmen, who felt unrepresented by North Carolina and were staunch friends of the Union, joined him. Jackson would eventually take a significant trip to Atlanta, Georgia.
Benedict Arnold mustered all the powers the executive was granted to crush the rebels. As the so-called "star-spangled banner" was hoisted by his army, the new rallying cry was shouted by the army of the free. "Down with the traitors, and up with the stars!"
A House Divided
Jefferson was conflicted. He believed in states rights', but would he really go so far as secession and disunion? Ultimately, he decided that the American Experiment was not a failure. He demanded that America put down the "crown loyalists" and snuff out their rebellion as fast as possible.
Thomas Jefferson helped to keep Virginia in the union.
Benedict Arnold believed that a show of force, a demonstration that he meant every word of his rhetoric, would be enough to quell the revolt. And so, in October, Arnold rode down south.
Until then, it was up to Congress to determine policy. The Federalists were all in favour of War Plan White, and crushing the south. They further believed that this was not a civil war, but a simple secession crisis.
The Republicans believed in moderation, and that the south was seceding only reluctantly. They pushed for restraint, but weren't afraid to engage in warfare to defeat the traitors. Many Republicans, however, sympathized with the rebels in the south.
The Agrarian Justice Party, oddly enough, took the hardest stance. They believed in the Emancipation Ordinance, freeing slaves in enemy-occupied territory. This is unlikely to pass, let alone survive Arnold's inevitable veto.
In this present crisis, who has your vote in the Midterms of 1794?

2023.05.27 22:16 chuckebrown Hotel and Transportation: 2023 NYC Marathon

Hi all,

Looking for some guidance for hotel and transportation for the 2023 NYC Marathon. This will be my first year running it. I commuted into the city from Rockland County for both the NYC Half and the Brooklyn Half, and could probably take a bus with my local road runner club. However, my family would like to attend, so a hotel looks like the best bet.

Based on what I've read here, a hotel in midtown or near the finish line is the best option. For those that get a hotel for the race, do you opt for late checkout (2pm) or do you stay an additional night?

For transportation to the start, what would be the best option for Wave 1 Corral A? I understand the ferry situation was abysmal for the 2022 marathon. Is the midtown bus the most reliable option to get to the starting line on time?

Thank you all for any guidance you offer.

【EVERYONE MUST READ】Received extraterrestrial messages through channelling: Regarding open contact and the future of humanity.
The following information is presented as a direct transmission without any personal subjective elements. Its authenticity is subjective and open to individual interpretation**.**
It is important to approach the content with an open mind, suspending conventional three-dimensional perspectives.
You are welcome to question, disagree, and inquire while maintaining respect for others. The information provided is based on my compilation of diary entries from the past two years, during which I have also received guidance from extraterrestrial visitors. Thus, the following content represents their intended message for humanity on Earth.
In the past two years, I have had experiences where I encountered beings that I believe to be extraterrestrials. If we classify them based on physical appearance, I have come across more than 50 distinct types, with the majority resembling the commonly known "Grey aliens." Although their colors varied slightly, they shared common traits such as slender limbs and large heads. Notably, all the extraterrestrial beings I encountered were devoid of hair. The height of these beings ranged from approximately 15cm (infant stage) to around 3 meters (adult stage).
In these encounters, I found myself often alone in a room, and they would approach me or transport my consciousness to another dimensional space for communication. On some occasions, these encounters took place in public settings such as airplanes, libraries, parks, and other crowded areas. However, I must emphasize that during these moments, I was the sole witness and participant in the interactions with these beings.
During encounters with certain alien species, I have noticed unusual physical reactions. For some of them, my eyelids would involuntarily twitch regardless of whether my eyes were open or closed. In the presence of highly energetic beings, I experienced involuntary movements in my limbs as well. Subsequently, their images would manifest in my mind, as if a vast mural was being projected before me.
However, I have also encountered extraterrestrial beings that closely resembled ordinary humans, though I could sense their true essence within. Some of these beings wore glass helmets, possibly to accommodate Earth's atmospheric conditions or magnetic fields (vibrational frequencies).
In addition to encountering extraterrestrial beings commonly depicted in media, literature, and online sources, I have come across entities whose existence has no recorded precedent in human accounts. Remarkably, I even find myself using terms like "beautiful" to describe certain female-like extraterrestrial beings due to their unique physical characteristics.
I have primarily encountered civilizations within our own Milky Way galaxy. During these encounters, I have observed certain civilizations whose attire suggests the presence of social hierarchies. However, it remains uncertain whether these hierarchies are based on an "elder system," "mentor system," or "monarchical system."
The information they transmit to me will not surpass my cognitive range. If there is a need for me to explore unfamiliar areas of knowledge, even beyond the existing knowledge on Earth, they will "arrange" opportunities for me to learn about them in advance.
Our communication takes place using telepathy or pure consciousness exchange. In this mode of communication, they utilize my native language, which is Cantonese.
In my experience, most of the information I have received has been through passive means, as I have been approached by these beings rather than actively seeking out encounters or information.
The information provided is as follows: We are currently existing in the 363rd universe, which is the fifth Earth, and it represents the eighth civilization. Starting from the latter half of 2019, there has been a notable shift in the vibrational frequency of Earth, leading to the occurrence of various extreme climatic events. Simultaneously, this shift has brought about a change in the frequency of consciousness for many individuals, resulting in a spiritual awakening. It is my understanding that these individuals have discovered a deeper sense of purpose in life, transcending materialistic pursuits.
Based on the information provided by extraterrestrial beings from the constellation of Cassiopeia, it is said that there will be a series of collective and open contact events between alien civilizations and humanity before the year 2025. During one such encounter, I encountered an extraterrestrial being who emitted a luminous white glow and possessed elongated limbs. Interestingly, they wore a glass-like covering around their neck. The spacecraft I observed differed significantly from what I had previously encountered or seen in popular depictions. Its surface had a dark metallic appearance, composed of overlapping three-dimensional geometric shapes such as irregular polygons, cubes, and flattened geometrical forms.
On March 12, 2023, it was conveyed to me that the first public contact would take place on May 30 of the same year.
On March 30, 2023, the spacecraft entered the solar system.
On May 12, 2023, at 1:00 AM, during my daily Zhan Zhuang(站桩) session, I had a visit from a pale gray extraterrestrial being.
This time, I took the initiative to ask questions.
Me: What is the significance of open contact?
ET: It is intended to assist individuals/souls on Earth in gaining a deeper understanding of themselves.
Me: What about the Creator?
ET: The Creator is the inherent existence itself, implying that every conscious being is an aspect of the Creator.
I further inquired about the concept of Earth's ascension, and the extraterrestrial explained that ascension involves returning to the past. If one does not ascend, they continue to exist in the present, but there is no conventional notion of a "future."
It is speculated that in the year 2030, Earth will experience a significant shift known as the singularity point. During this time, awakened individuals will transcend to a higher frequency, entering a dimension separate from the physical world. This event is often referred to as Earth's ascension. The process of ascension requires the collective power of awakened souls as well as the assistance of certain structures scattered across the planet, such as ancient pyramid-like monuments. These structures are believed to have served as energy amplifiers or charging stations for extraterrestrial craft in ancient civilizations.
After 2030, the frequency and intensity of both natural and human-induced disasters are expected to increase. As Earth undergoes profound changes, including extreme weather events, the fate of humanity becomes uncertain. The exact timeline or duration of these transformations leading to the eventual disappearance of human presence is unknown.
It is believed by some individuals who have awakened to their higher consciousness on Earth that they may be experiencing their final incarnation within the cycle of reincarnation on this planet. As a result, there may be a decrease in the number of souls choosing to incarnate here. Personally, I have noticed a noticeable decrease in the number of individuals since November 2022.
In my clairvoyant visions of the future, I witnessed a final scene of Earth where all surface water rapidly returned to the planet's core, leaving behind a desiccated terrain. The Earth's atmosphere vanished, and the protective energetic boundaries surrounding the planet dissipated. There is no specific timeframe for these events, but when I witnessed them, I was astonished for about 30 seconds.
On June 3, 2021, during my time in Toronto, I encountered an extraterrestrial being who claimed to be from the most advanced civilization in the Milky Way galaxy. This being had a head resembling that of an octopus and spoke with a masculine voice. Unlike previous extraterrestrial encounters, this being had human-like eyes and emitted a subtle blue and white light. He had a humanoid form.
Using blackboard-like equipment, he wrote a series of symbols and mathematical equations, some of which involved the use of π in different orientations. However, I couldn't comprehend whether these symbols represented text or formulas.
Given my limited knowledge of physics, I asked him to provide a simple and easily understandable example to explain the concept of a singularity. He responded by saying, "A singularity is like a fully ripe watermelon." From my understanding, he meant that a singularity represents a transformative point where a significant qualitative change occurs.

The following is a personal account and viewpoint.
Extraterrestrial Technology
I can only say that the technological advancements of extraterrestrial beings surpass our current level of Earthly technology by a significant margin. It is important to note that the depictions of alien technology in science fiction movies cannot truly capture the full extent of their capabilities. At present, our ability to "detect" or "discover" extraterrestrial life is limited. Therefore, relying solely on visual evidence captured by human senses, optical instruments, such as photographs and videos, or even advanced military radar tracking technology, may not be sufficient to prove the existence of extraterrestrial beings. It is possible that these observations only provide glimpses into their plans and intentions.
During my personal encounters, I witnessed their spacecraft, which seemed to be powered by crystals that resemble those found on Earth. Therefore, when I tried remote viewing the base of the Egyptian pyramids, I observed the presence of enormous crystal formations. I have contemplated whether the ancient extraterrestrial beings, such as the Anunnaki, were interested in mining not for gold, as commonly believed by humans, but for the seemingly undervalued resource of crystals.
Aliens on the moon
The extraterrestrial beings I observed on the Moon resemble the appearance of small greys, but their skin is not smooth and instead has numerous wrinkles. Whenever they are outside their spacecraft, these beings always wear spacesuits, with their heads exposed and not requiring a helmet. I saw this through my clairvoyant abilities, but as soon as they became aware of my presence, I stopped RV them after a few seconds. I gathered that these particular extraterrestrial beings have some connection to Russia and the United States, with a closer affiliation to Russia.
On January 23, 2023, at 3:00 AM, I used remote viewing of the Moon again and discovered that all of them had evacuated from the lunar surface, still wearing their spacesuits. This leads me to speculate that there will no longer be any human lunar exploration missions in the future.
The pyramids on Mars
March 25, 2023 -The following information was conveyed to me by my ancestral spirit guide: There are currently two pyramids on Mars, similar in size to the one in Mexico. They have been buried underground by orange-red sand. Some interstellar extraterrestrials are still exploring the interior of the pyramids.
Interstellar extraterrestrials are a group of beings from outside our universe who explore other celestial bodies. They cannot breathe in space or environments with oxygen and require special gases. They wear suits similar to spacesuits on Earth, but their structures and functionalities are more advanced. Their bodies emit a faint glow.
Earth Ascension
APR 12, 2023 - Over the past couple of years, I have been gradually glimpsing fragments of my existence before reincarnating on Earth, leading me to speculate about Earth's previous civilization. It appears that Earth was once a highly advanced civilization existing in higher dimensions, and the occurrence of the great flood undoubtedly caused a significant dimensional decline. As a result, the tales of advanced civilizations such as Mu, Atlantis, and the mythological stories passed down across the world, which I initially believed to be true stories of divine encounters, now seem to be events involving ancient higher-dimensional human civilizations. The ascension of Earth does not involve a transition from three dimensions to four or higher dimensions, but rather a restoration of Earth to its original trajectory and vibrational frequency.
ET Wars
During the summer of 2021, I had my first encounter with two distinct large spacecraft engaged in a "war" in the skies above Vancouver. However, from my perspective, the "warfare" amounted to the two ships closely approaching each other for a brief moment before one of them vanished entirely. For the average person looking up at the sky, they would likely see nothing more than a peaceful day with blue skies and the sun. It seems that there are factions of extraterrestrial beings on Earth representing different groups or alliances.
Thiaoouba Prophecy
It is a book that gives me the impression of an attempt by an extraterrestrial to write in a human-like manner. Many people consider it to be a pseudo book, as it contains elements that come across as rigidly presented, and the author's thinking appears quite different.
North Korea
This country is associated with an extraterrestrial race of insect type, of which I am very certain, that the highest leader Kim Jong-un appearing publicly inside and outside the DPRK is not himself.

I would like to briefly share my background. I was born in a small tea plantation in Guangdong, China. From an early age, I frequently encountered extraterrestrial beings or had experiences where they sought me out. Although I didn't know who they were during my childhood, I was certain that they did not originate from Earth. For me, extraterrestrial beings/civilizations have always been present on Earth, and they are ubiquitous. It was not until I reached middle school that I realized their existence in this world was either unknown or denied.
In my perspective, extraterrestrial beings have not openly interacted with humans due to our overwhelming fear of the unknown and our inherent resistance to anything different or dissenting. Humans often approach unfamiliar things and differing opinions with hostility.
In a dream I had in February 2023: Many extraterrestrial beings descended from the sky wearing silver-white protective suits made of metallic material. Their spacecraft resembled our helicopters to some extent. However, at that time, humans were still unable to visually perceive their presence. It required a large screen device, larger than our current smartphones, measuring approximately 20cm x 15cm x 2cm, to detect them. The extraterrestrial beings did not engage in any actions that would harm humans physically or mentally. Some curious individuals were solely focused on capturing photos and videos using this device, while others were filled with panic and fled the scene.
On March 5, 2023, for the first time, I had contact with extraterrestrial beings through a dream. This dream occurred when I fell back asleep after waking up in the morning. In the dream, I temporarily stayed at a guesthouse near an airport as I needed to go somewhere. One day, I took a ride in a seven-seater business vehicle rented by the hotel to visit a nearby commercial area. Suddenly, during the journey, I fell into a drowsy state. Just as I was about to rest my eyes in the car, a long, soft tentacle-like appendage coiled around my right index finger, making two loops. I immediately opened my eyes, and the tentacle disappeared.
At that moment, I had a realization that I needed to close my eyes to establish a connection with the entity. I closed my eyes once again, and a sense of its presence enveloped me. It stood approximately 20 to 30 centimetres tall. As I touched its body with my left hand, I noticed its skin was remarkably smooth, akin to the delicate skin of a human baby. There were no hairs, and its form lacked excess fat. Its head resembled that of a human, measuring around 8 to 10 centimetres in diameter. It felt considerably softer than a human head, and on the left side of its head, there was a protrusion resembling a fan-shaped structure, somewhat reminiscent of tendrils. Throughout the entire encounter, I kept my eyes closed, yet I could sense the overwhelming sense of joy and serenity emanating from the being. After approximately ten seconds of contact, it disappeared.
Upon waking up, I experienced a faint electric sensation coursing through my body. Every pore seemed to be wide open, creating a peculiar sensation similar to a slight chill, yet different from the usual experience of feeling cold.
Based on these two dreams, I speculate that in future encounters between extraterrestrial beings and human beings, we may not be able to observe their existence with our naked eyes. Instead, we will have to perceive them through our senses.
The Flat Earth Theory
The Earth is flat, not just based on online opinions, but because I saw it with remote viewing as a flat surface when I was young, and it remains the same now. Based on this fact, the scientific understanding of the planetary orbits in the solar system is entirely wrong. At the very least, the Earth should be stationary, with the Moon and the Sun revolving around it. This aligns with Buddhist cosmology, where the world is described as a space illuminated by the presence of the sun and moon.
Feb 28, 2023: Utilizing remote viewing, I intended to project my consciousness beyond the boundaries of the solar system to observe the trajectories of the planets. However, to my astonishment, what I witnessed was that all celestial bodies within the solar system appeared to be motionless when viewed from outside.
It seems that the concept of time may not exist in a high-dimensional world, but rather in our three-dimensional reality. Another point to consider is that the Earth's ascension would require an acceleration of space-time. From the perspective of the universe, the solar system appears to be stationary due to its overall low vibration frequency.
When I came across Elon Musk's Mars program in the news, I posed a question to my guiding spirit.
Me: Will humans relocate to Mars or the Moon in a thousand years?
Spirit: I am uncertain whether you (humans) will be able to embark on the journey to the next civilization.
Therefore, I have always believed that the preservation of the world's diversity and the continuity of human civilization depend on human inclusivity.
