2020.10.26 00:25 ThrowThrow9964 [M19] To those who use dating apps (i.e. bumble), any advice for me?

I’m thinking of getting back into the dating scene. Instead of being pessimist and dwelling on past relationships, I’m just going to be confident and shoot my shot. The worst they can say is no, and the more people I talk to, the better! I learn something and maybe make someone’s day by being nice :)
With that being said, I am obviously kinda scared. I’m afraid I won’t be able to keep their interest, which I guess is kind of the nature of this whole thing and why I’m doing it: to get better at meeting/getting to know people.
I study bio in university hoping to get into medical school. In addition to working at the hospital as a nursing assistant, I also play tennis, ski, and watch anime. I like to study language in my free time, namely Indonesian (my first language which I’ve lost), Spanish, and just recently Japanese.
So I have interests but I guess I just don’t know how to create that “click” that keeps someone’s attention if we end up talking. Idek how to make my bio interesting. And I’m afraid the weeb part is gonna prevent me from getting swipes haha, my friends tell me to not put it on there.
I’m just gonna go with my gut, but do y’all have any advice? Both for me and the general public?

2020.10.25 03:31 assousa US Secretary of State Pompeo set to boost Indonesian religious reform efforts

By James M. Dorsey
US Secretary of State Mike Pompeo is set to boost efforts by the world’s largest Muslim movement to recontextualize Islam during a forthcoming visit to Indonesia as part of a three-nation Asian tour. The tour is likely to be the secretary’s last official trip prior to next month’s US presidential election.
Mr. Pompeo’s engagement with Nahdlatul Ulama, a powerful Islamic grouping in Indonesia, with an estimated following of 50 million people, takes on added significance against the backdrop of the Trump administration’s push for a definition of human rights that redefines notions of freedom of religion at the expense of other basic rights in advance of a hard fought election that Donald J. Trump could lose.
It also comes as French President Emmanuel Macron kicked into high gear his self-declared mission of reforming what he has termed an Islam that “is a religion that is in crisis all over the world” in the wake of the gruesome murder of Samuel Paty, a 47-year old teacher.
Mr. Paty was killed by an 18-year old youth of Chechen descent after he used cartoons depicting the Prophet Mohammed in a class about freedom of expression.
The Indonesia-leg at the end of Mr. Pompeo’s tour, which is first taking him to India and Sri Lanka, similarly comes as Nahdlatul Ulama, an independent civil society movement, competes globally with Saudi, United Arab Emirates, and Turkish state-backed efforts to garner religious soft power and shape the definition of what constitutes moderate Islam.
Nahdlatul Ulama was founded almost a century ago in opposition to Wahhabism, the austere interpretation of Islam, that has largely guided Saudi Arabia since its founding in 1932.
Mr. Pompeo and his top aides are scheduled to participate in two days of events in the Indonesian capital organized by Nahdlatul Ulama to nurture “the shared civilizational aspirations” of Indonesia, the United States and Islam, defined by the group with the Qur’anic phrase that the faith is “a source of universal love and compassion.”
By giving Nahdlatul Ulama the State Department’s seal of approval, Mr. Pompeo is implicitly acknowledging the fact that the group unlike its rivals in the quest for religious soft power has started to put its money where its mouth is.
Unlike its soft power rivals, Nahdlatul Ulama has spelt out its definition of moderate Islam with its adoption in 2015 of the concept of Nusantara (Archipelago) or humanitarian Islam that calls for a full embrace of the United Nations Declaration of Human Rights (UNHDR).
Countries like Saudi Arabia and the UAE project themselves as models of undefined forms of moderate Islam manifested by engagement in inter-faith dialogue and varying degrees of religious tolerance.
They have, however, stopped short of addressing theologically problematic concepts like that of kafirs or infidels, the Muslim reference to non-Muslims, slavery, dhimmis, people of the book that Islam recognizes but accords a lesser status than Muslims, apostasy, and blasphemy.
They have also manoeuvred in inter-faith gatherings to evade unrestricted support of the UN human rights declaration.
By contrast, Nahdlatul Ulama has taken initial steps in that direction even if it still has a ways to go. Thousands of the group’s religious scholars issued a fatwa or religious opinion that eliminated the notion of infidels, effectively removing one pillar of Muslim perceptions of religious supremacy.
Based on statements by Nahdlatul Ulama leaders, the group’s scholars are likely to next do away with the legal concept of slavery.
The group’s litmus test will be if and when it takes on apostasy and blasphemy, concepts that are certain to be far more emotive and controversial. Nahdlatul Ulama officials say the group has long accepted in practice conversion away from Islam.
Mr. Pompeo’s acknowledgement of Nahdlatul Ulama further suggests that the State Department recognizes that religious reform is more likely to successfully be enacted by independent civil society actors with proper religious credentials and a significant following rather than states.
It is a recognition that by implication highlights the limitations of efforts by states, including Saudi Arabia, the UAE and Turkey, to define the essence of Islam as well as Mr. Macron’s ambition to solve the faith’s problems for it.
Mr. Pompeo lands in Jakarta shortly after signing the Geneva Consensus Declaration alongside a host of countries that propagate conservative values and rank low on Georgetown University’s Women, Peace and Security Index.
The declaration seeks to promote women’s rights and health and strengthen the family but emphasizes that “in no case should abortion be promoted as a method of family planning.”
It stipulates that there is “no international right to abortion, nor any international obligation on the part of States to finance or facilitate abortion.”
The declaration’s signatories include Saudi Arabia, Bahrain, the UAE, Iraq, Sudan, South Sudan, Libya, Egypt, Belarus, Hungary, and Indonesia.
Many of the signatories are members of the Group of Friends, a block of 25 nations in the United Nations that seeks to pre-empt any expansion of rights for girls, women, and LGBT people and weaken international support for the Beijing Declaration, a landmark 1995 agreement that stands as an internationally recognized progressive blueprint for women’s rights.
Much of the group’s positions are coordinated by the Center for Family and Human Rights, or C-Fam, a small but influential far-right group that focuses on abortion, sexual orientation and gender identity. C-Fam has worked closely with the State Department dating back to the administration of US President George W. Bush.
Accompanied by among others Mary Ann Glendon, the head of the State Department’s Commission on Unalienable Rights, Mr. Pompeo’s arrival in Jakarta also comes after the centre-right Centrist Democrat International (IDC-CDI), the world’s largest alliance of political parties, acknowledged the Commission’s report as “a re-affirmation of the spirit and substance of fundamental human rights.”
Indonesia’s National Awakening Party (PKB), which has five seats in President Joko Widodo’s cabinet and is an influential member of IDC-CDI, is closely associated with Nahdlatul Ulama.
Critics have charged that the Commission’s report fuels assertions that there are too many human rights and prioritizes religious liberty and property rights at the expense of protections against discrimination particularly on the basis of gender.
As a result, Mr. Pompeo’s endorsement of Nahdlatul Ulama could prove to be a double-edged sword. It strengthens the group’s proposition, yet also identifies it with one faction in a global battle that not only seeks to define the soul of Islam but also fundamentally shape what constitutes a human right.

2020.10.21 12:28 M2MResearch [Mod Informed] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

Hello! I am a student researcher at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan). My team is conducting a study titled “Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19”. Our study looks into the experiences of subgroups of the Asian community that are often missed out in Asian community research in Canada. We would like to find out whether coming from these ethnic communities would create a different experience for our participants during CoVid-19. We are also interested to learn if these experiences differ when participants belong to a minority sexual orientation.
You may participate in our study if you identify with either Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Southeast Asia as your heritage culture. Southeast Asian countries include Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Brunei and/or Timor-Leste. Participants identifying as e.g., Singaporean/Malaysian/Indonesian Chinese/Indians may also participate. We welcome temporary residents (e.g., international students), immigrants and first/second/third/later- generation Canadians who identify with these heritage cultures to join our study. Participants must be at least aged 19. You must also identify as being a man-who-has-sex-with-men (MSM) to join our study. You must have been in Canada for at least 2 years. You must be able to read and speak in English.
We will be interviewing participants on their experiences as Asian MSM. We will ask questions about their experiences before and after CoVid-19 began. We will be interviewing over audio call on Skype for Business between September 2020 and March 2021. We have chosen this software as it is hosted on UBC servers, hence maximizing confidentiality. The interview will be recorded on QuickTime. Some of the questions may result in unpleasant memories, especially when they relate to CoVid-19. If you prefer not to discuss your experiences with CoVid, you may not want to take part in our study. If you do want to take part, you can request to take a break, skip any questions or end the study at any point in time. The interviews will take about 2 hours in total.
We are unfortunately unable to provide any remuneration for participating in our study. Should you be interested, please do not post comments on our post. Instead, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AItWBRmUD3RQ21. While Skype for Business is already a secure software, we would like to invite you to use a Virtual Private Network (VPN) when accessing our link to further guarantee confidentiality. There are VPN options available online that are either free (e.g., TunnelBear) or that you may consider purchasing (e.g., NordVPN, ExpressVPN, or Cisco AnyConnect Secure).

Break down and Background

What is Cinnamon?

Cinnamon (Cinnamomum verum) is a spice made by the bark of a tropical evergreen tree. There are different kinds and species of cinnamon, such as:
  • Cinnamomum Cassia (or known as Chinese cinnamon)
  • Ceylon cinnamon (Verum, Sri Lanka cinnamon, or Cinnamomum Zeylanicum)
  • Burmannii (Korintje, Padang cassia, or Indonesian cinnamon)
  • Cinnamomum tamala (Indian bay leaf, Tezpat, Tezapatta, or Malabar leaf)
  • Loureiroi (Saigon cinnamon, Vietnamese cassia, or Vietnamese cinnamon)
  • Citriodorum (Malabar cinnamon)
Cinnamon is widely used in the health and fitness industry as a weight loss supplement, as it’s really effective at stabilizing blood sugar levels and reducing hunger.
Cinnamon is also widely used in commercial food products, added into:
Cinnamon is one of the most used cooking spice in the world. It’s mostly used in African, Asian, and Tropical cuisines and areas such as:
  • Central Asia (the Middle East)
  • China
  • East African countries
  • North African countries
  • India
  • Morocco
  • Mexico
  • The Caribbean
All types of cinnamon are powerful preservatives, similar to salt. Their chemicals are used in pickling brines and manufactured food preservatives, including cinnamate, cinnamic acid, and cinnamaldehyde.
In addition to adding an earthy flavor to cooking recipes and preserving food, cinnamon has many health benefits with few side effects.
Cinnamon contains many essential oil and healthy plant-based compounds that contribute to its list of beneficial effects. Cinnamon contains essential oils such as:
  • Cinnamate
  • Cinnamic acid
  • Cinnamyl Acetate
  • Eugenol
  • Eugenol Acetate
  • Cinnamaldehyde
These healthy compounds in also have other health benefits, since these essential oils and antioxidants are anti-inflammatory, antidiabetic, anticancer, antiviral, and antimicrobial.
Studies have also found that these antioxidants lower the risk of cardiovascular disease, cancer, heart disease, Alzheimer’s disease, and Parkinson's diseases.

Origin and History

Cinnamon has been traditionally used in ancient and modern culture as an aromatic cooking ingredient and for medicinal uses
Its botanical name, Cinnamomum, is derived from the Hebraic and Arabic term amomon, meaning fragrant spice plant.
Dating back to Ancient Egypt around 2000 BC, cinnamon was highly prized and regarded as a gift for the ancient monarchs, kings, and rulers.
The Egyptian used cinnamon for a variety of purposes including healing, food preservation, improving immune system strength, fighting diseases and overall health.
The Ancient Egyptian also used cinnamon, along with honey, sesame oil, orange blossoms, henna, as well as tree resin to embalm mummies, prevent food from spoiling, and also burned as an incense.
In the 15th and 16th century, cinnamon, willow, roses, fennel, ginger, cloves, and other herbs were used to help cure the sick and prevent symptoms of the Bubonic Plague.

Types of Cinnamon

Cinnamon spices and herbs come in two primary types: Cassia Cinnamon and Ceylon cinnamon.

Cassia Cinnamon

It’s also effective at managing blood glucose levels, keeping your energy levels up and lowering your hunger cravings.
Cassia cinnamon’s bark is bright and light brown in color. It’s primarily produced in Vietnam, China, and Indonesia - and is mostly imported into Canada as well as the US
Cassia cinnamon is the most common type of cinnamon found in grocery stores.

Ceylon (True) Cinnamon

Ceylon cinnamon (Zeylanicum Cinnamomum) is also known as “true cinnamon”, since it’s a much higher quality cinnamon and is much safer to eat in large amounts. In high doses, cassia cinnamon can increase stress on the liver.
Ceylon cinnamon bark is dense and dark brown in color. Ceylon cinnamon sticks are fine and can be easily broken down into a powder.
Although Ceylon cinnamon loses more flavor during cooking, it’s much more aromatic and gives a light cinnamon flavor to the dish.
Ceylon true cinnamon is also more expensive than cassia, as it’s healthier and much harder to make. It’s mostly produced in Brazil, Sri Lanka, The Caribbean, Madagascar, and India.

2020.10.19 02:20 super__crash_ how do i (18M) deal with my girlfriend's (18F) controlling parents and some other problem i've come to face?

We've been dating for a little over 3 months now and it is my first relationship ever. We were best friends during the last year of high school, and then soon didn't talk for a while since her parents grounded her during the beginnings of quarantine. Soon after we graduated from high school, we reunited. This was when she started having a crush on me, then soon asked me out around the first week of August. Story short, the relationship has been awesome so far, but there are a couple of things that have been popping up in my mind and I think I need to address it. I don't know how though, so I'll explain the situation.
I didn't really know what to expect going into this relationship. In fact, I don't really know what I am doing, so I am taking advice from my friends and her previous ex's which are now her best friends. Personally, I think I am a very caring and understanding person, so I just turn that up by a notch in this relationship. I especially need to be understanding because she has a really hard time a lot of times, mainly because of her parents.
Her parents put a mental leash around her, and it really hurts me to see them do this. They have a tracker in her car, always want to know where she is, and can barely spend time outside. Her parents consistently text her in a passive aggressive tone and she's traumatized from getting phone calls from anyone, especially her mom. They also manipulate her and give her too much unwanted attention, trying to gain as much control over her as possible. Every time we're together or she is with her other friends, she has a constant feeling of "being on edge" that she's going to get a text/call from her parents or accidently running into them in the wild. It's been harder on her since the pandemic.
Now you ask, how do we even see each other? She's a really good liar when it comes to her parents, having great excuses in order to get out of the house. She works at Trader Joe's, so I try to come visit her as much as possible on her 30 minute break. Sometimes when she doesn't have work, she lies to her parents that she as work, drives to Trader Joe's since her car has tracker, and I pick her up there. Recently, she rarely does the "lying at work strategy" anymore, so I just see her at her breaks. When she has days off, her parents don't allow her to leave the house or she wants to go and hike (she's an avid backpacker, but I'm not unfortunately ahaha). I have to be SUPER understanding and accommodate for her insane amounts. When she does have the time to get out of house and be with people, she wants to spend the time her friends since and all that stuff since she rarely sees them, so I learned to understand. If she's happy, I'm happy as well. It usually works out like this: I pick her up from Trader Joe's, we hangout for around 2-3 hours, then drop her off at some friends house for like 6-8 hours, until I pick her up again at around 11pm since that is when her shift ends, so she has be home by then. I do see her everyday because of her breaks, so I do understand why she wants to see other people. But I also do wish I can spend more time with her. The times we do have most of the day together, like going to car meets or even just chilling at my house, it's magical. I already talked to her about this to make sure she's aware of it, and she took it really well and promised to "try" harder. I just wish I can help her in some way.
The situation with my parents is the complete opposite. My parents love me an immense amount, let me have my freedom at 18, and are just great in general. I already introduced my girlfriend with my parents and they are big fans of her. My mom even bought her a Christmas gift and somehow, my extended family already know about her and asks me how she is when I talk to them. For my girlfriend, her parents don't know that we're dating and think I'm just a best friend. They're also very white and Catholic, unlike mine, which are Indonesian-Chinese and Catholic.
Recently, my frustration from the of pressure from trying to accommodate plus understanding has been getting up me hard. The pressures of just life and college doesn't help at all. I think something has been bothering since she hasn't been texting me back or Snapping me at all. We even lost the heart on Snapchat, which frustrated me since we don't even talk much virtually and that's one of the easiest ways for us to connect. She's been a bad texter in general. Usually leaving me and a lot other people in general on delivered for a long time, but it's getting to the point of like being left delivered for over 10 hours. I want to bring this up to her, but I'm afraid too since I don't want her to be stressed out about our relationship since her life is already hard.
Another thing that has been bothering me is that on our anniversary date, the 12th, she said she missed the feeling of being single since she didn't need to think twice who to be with and get stressed out with the feeling of me being mad at her for us not hanging out etc. I haven't brought that up yet, and I still see her at work everyday. I know she still cares about me a lot and shows it, for the times I've seen her.
I don't know what to do right now. I'm confused as all hell. How do I bring this up to her without making her think I'm stressing her out. All I want to do is just be a wonderful and caring boyfriend, supporting her through hard times. It's also hard since this is my first relationship, dropped into all of this.
I appreciate it a lot if you read through this and give me some advice/help. Thank you very much!

Acknowledgements
This author is deeply grateful to the Hololive community for providing much-needed information on the interactions and friendships of the Vtubers. In addition, he would like to extend his special thanks to the following users for their particular assistance rendered: u/Pompmaker1, u/Duwang312, u/Geroni-Bro, u/Twitchingbouse, u/TypicalRice, u/dobie7654, u/Aldizkari, u/Orange_Ninja, u/konome00, u/Cencourang, u/ikonog, u/Juanraden, u/Dvalinn25, u/FormX, u/MarkusTanbeck, u/falzarexe. A full list of images used in the pictorial version along with their artists may be found here. Where errors may be found, they are the sole responsibility of this author.
Introduction
After a lot of work, I am proud to present the Holoverse Relational Network – an illustrated guide to the friendships in the Hololive Universe across its four language divisions (Japanese, Chinese, Indonesian and English) and fourteen generations of Vtubers. This would certainly not have been possible without the Hololive community providing much-needed information for new fans like me given the vast amount of ties which do exist between and within each generation. To them, I would like to extend my deepest gratitude.
The paper begins with a brief review of what literature has been reviewed and introduces the research design and methodology used. After presenting several key findings and briefly discussing them, the paper concludes.
Literature Review
Based on a recent friendship/shipping chart by u/Pompmaker1 made two months ago, an edge list was created and feedback sought from the Hololive community in a first post. Following major revisions and the additions of the HoloStars, Hololive Indonesian division and Hololive Chinese divisions, a penultimate version was created and presented to the community for further, and final feedback. Revisions based on feedback received (combined with some cross-checking with a fairly recent chart of a similar nature compiled by u/Geroni-Bro) led to the final network seen.
Research Design and Methodology
Four “levels” of friendships were used as edge ties between nodes as follows:
  1. “Friends (with)” roughly corresponding to a Vtuber having interacted with another Vtuber in a friendly, if otherwise unremarkable, manner;
  2. “Good Friends (with)” corresponding to a Vtuber having noticeable “chemistry” in their friendship with another Vtuber;
  3. “Best Friends (with)” signifies close and deep friendly interactions or a friendship with another Vtuber;
  4. “Loves / Really cares for” suggests deep care and concern shown towards the well-being of another Vtuber in question which may extend to something beyond “Best Friends”
Edge weights were linearly assigned in increments of two and node sizes being scaled according to their total degree (sum of in-degree and out-degree values) value. A standard Fruchterman-Reingold force-directed algorithm was used for the generation of the network layout in order to place key nodes at the network’s center and ensure a good spread of both individual nodes and node clusters.
The original edge list was turned into an adjacency matrix in Excel, of which a CSV version was then saved and fed into Gephi for network generation and later editing. Subsequent edits took place directly in the CSV files and were also made to the adjacency matrix for redundancy purposes. SVG renders of the networks were created in Gephi and later fed into Gimp for the final addition of node and edge legends.
Key Findings and Discussion
Beyond the pretty visualization provided at the top, less visually attractive but highly-informative networks renders provide interesting insights into the current Holoverse friendships.
Figure 1: Holoverse Relational Network coloured according to Vtuber language divisions
Figure 1 above shows the network with nodes coloured according to the language divisions which each Vtuber belongs to. A visual examination seems to suggest that there is a relative paucity of ties (both in frequency and depth) between the English-Japanese and Chinese-Japanese Vtuber divisions.

Figure 2: Holoverse Relational Network coloured according to Vtuber generations.
Figure 2 above shows the same network with its nodes coloured according to the different generations which Vtubers are associated with.[1] A thick web of ties may be observed in the blue nodes belonging to the HoloStar Vtubers, suggesting that there is a high frequency of friendly ties between them. Less cross-generational ties are also observed between the EN_1G, JP_5G, CN_1G and CN_2G groups to the main JP Vtuber network, suggesting that it takes time for newer generations of Vtubers to form close and deep ties with their senior colleagues and associates.
[1] An exceptional case is Fubuki (FBK), who belongs to both the First Generation of Hololive Vtubers (JP_1G) and Hololive Gamers (JP_GG) community. Due to her earlier debut date (compared to others in Hololive Gamers) matching closely with her peers from the First Generation, a research decision was made to tag her primary ‘generation’ as the “First Generation”.

Figure 3: Pictorial Version of Holoverse Relational Network with annotated generational clusters.
A quick glance at Figure 3 largely supports the observations mentioned earlier and also seems to suggest that Japanese-division Hololive Vtubers from the third generation onwards began to form deeper intra-generational ties than their predecessors did. The high correlation between node clusters and the generations of Vtubers within these clusters may be indicative of a phenomenon suggested by one user, but it remains to be seen how tightly and deeply newer generations integrate themselves with their senior colleagues across language and generational divisions.
Research Limitations
Of course, a project of this nature has several notable caveats. Firstly, what information this network has been based on is largely limited to what is available from English translations. As such, more entertaining clips or humorous Vtubers are likely to have more information available about them and their interactions with other Vtubers, which naturally leads to some inherent biases. This may be mitigated to some extent in the future through cooperating with community members that have greater insight into Vtuber interactions that go unrecorded or untranslated into English but is unlikely to be completely eliminated.
Secondly, there is always difficulty in clearly distinguishing between very similar levels of friendships across different dyads/friendship pairs, so the difference between the four levels of friendship used (‘friend’, ‘good friend’, ‘best friend’ and ‘loves/really cares for’) is admittedly more grey and muddled than one may prefer. To the extent that crowd-sourced knowledge can be trusted, however, it is possible to have some confidence in the broader contours of the relational network and in individual Vtubers’ friendships which are widely known. It is inadvisable, however, to take this network with any finality or to assume that it is more accurate than it presents itself to be.
Finally, many past archives of these Vtubers which would have been useful for research are no longer accessible. As such, some nuance may have been lost, but this is possibly mitigated given the time-sensitive nature of these networks which are apt to change over time.

Conclusion
https://preview.redd.it/cn3c0by7ewt51.png?width=2600&format=png&auto=webp&s=1b121da0991adbbe95995fb9a5f9ee6d8d71e6e9
Building upon the Herculean efforts of other users who have spent significant amounts of time mapping out friendships and other interactions among Hololive Vtubers, this Holoverse Relational Network represents a small step forward in our understanding of friendships between these Vtubers. Great care has been taken to avoid a ‘meme-heavy’ friendship map in favour of a slightly more tangible network based on interpersonal relations in order to better understand something inhibited by both language barriers and imperfect information. Nevertheless, this relational network should prove to be helpful for new fans in the community curious about who their favourite Vtuber likes to interact with and may be of some general interest to the Hololive community as a whole.

2020.10.17 07:24 M2MResearch [Mod Approved] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

Hello! I am a student researcher at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan). My team is conducting a study titled “Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19”. Our study looks into the experiences of subgroups of the Asian community that are often missed out in Asian community research in Canada. We would like to find out whether coming from these ethnic communities would create a different experience for our participants during CoVid-19. We are also interested to learn if these experiences differ when participants belong to a minority sexual orientation.
You may participate in our study if you identify with either Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Southeast Asia as your heritage culture. Southeast Asian countries include Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Brunei and/or Timor-Leste. Participants identifying as e.g., Singaporean/Malaysian/Indonesian Chinese/Indians may also participate. We welcome temporary residents (e.g., international students), immigrants and first/second/third/later- generation Canadians who identify with these heritage cultures to join our study. Participants must be at least aged 19. You must also identify as being a man-who-has-sex-with-men (MSM) to join our study. You must have been in Canada for at least 2 years. You must be able to read and speak in English.
We will be interviewing participants on their experiences as Asian MSM. We will ask questions about their experiences before and after CoVid-19 began. We will be interviewing over audio call on Skype for Business between September 2020 and March 2021. We have chosen this software as it is hosted on UBC servers, hence maximizing confidentiality. The interview will be recorded on QuickTime. Some of the questions may result in unpleasant memories, especially when they relate to CoVid-19. If you prefer not to discuss your experiences with CoVid, you may not want to take part in our study. If you do want to take part, you can request to take a break, skip any questions or end the study at any point in time. The interviews will take about 2 hours in total.
We are unfortunately unable to provide any remuneration for participating in our study. Should you be interested, please do not post comments on our post. Instead, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AItWBRmUD3RQ21.

2020.10.15 21:59 aazav Hominid history. Just how many human and primate ancestors are there? Well, possibly at least 2 more.

While we are thinking about what branch of life that Bigfoot can come from, we've been thinking about Gigantopithecus blacki, considering the snouted ones reminiscent of baboons or Dinopithecus and recently the gibbon, Hylobatidae. Not to mention the interesting lesser known candidates such as Oreopithecus, Sivapithecus and Pliopithecus.
As it happens, it wasn't so long ago that new human ancestors were discovered. Homo floresiensis, Homo naledi, Homo denisova, are all recent discoveries. IIRC, one of my posts here may have indicated additional Flores-like fossil human species on other islands in the Pacific islands between Australia, Sri Lanka and Malaysia.
Even research from 2016 indicates that there may be another undiscovered human species which has been found in an analysis of indigenous Australians.
https://www.sciencealert.com/pacific-islanders-appear-to-be-carrying-the-dna-of-an-unknown-human-species
Yet, within the past ten years, discovery of denisova and naledi have started to indicate just how many varieties of pre humans there have been on this planet with H. naledi being the most surprisingly well preserved finds to date.
Well, I hope you are sitting down.
This info is barely a month old and nothing has been published about it yet. The discoverer of H. naledi in South Africa, by Lee Rogers Berger, found H. naledi with Rick Hunter and Steve Tucker in the Rising Star cave system, 31 miles north of Johannesburg just 7 years ago.
Today, I was listening to podcasts and heard something that passed by quickly. Something from Lee Berger about another hominid just found within the past 3 weeks.
Lee mentioned that remains of a completely different hominid in another cave system 200 meters away from the cave where Homo naledi was discovered has been found.
It's a different creature. Another hominid and a big toothed hominid. And that's all I have on it according to Lee Berger.
They are still figuring out what it is. Nothing's been written of published on this as of yet. Lee just spoke about the discovery on the latest podcast of The Naked Scientists.
He starts talking about it for a few minutes starting at 00:01:00 in the BBC 5 Live Science Podcast. He only speaks about it for a minute and a half though. It's a completely different human ancestor.
https://www.bbc.co.uk/sounds/play/p08tw2c9 Lee Berger is from University of the Witwatersrand in scenic downtown South Africa.
The denisovians were found in a Siberian cave. H. floresiensis was found on the Indonesian island of Flores. But so much is coming out of SA, it's just awesome. The discovery site is near Krugersdorp too.
If this cave was 200M away from Rising Star Cave, I wonder just what else might be buried right under our feet.
Lee seemed to indicate that there were other discoveries too, and at the 52 minute mark he mentions a little more, but not much. I can't wait to see what ends up being found. He says that there were "dozens and dozens of our closest relatives like ours and adaptations like ours that have (existed) until the last million years…"
And for more info on some of the species I mentioned, here we go.

Note: I'd like a second set of eyes for those qualified in the field to vet that the links I'm providing are indeed accurate and do not coutain misleading, outdated or incorrect information. Also, please reply to any mistakes in the above text so that they can be fixed.
Cheers.

2020.10.09 08:50 M2MResearch [Mod Informed] Participant Recruitment: Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19

Hello! I am a student researcher at the University of British Columbia (Okanagan). My team is conducting a study titled “Exploring the experiences of invisible Asian MSM communities during CoVid-19”. Our study looks into the experiences of subgroups of the Asian community that are often missed out in Asian community research in Canada. We would like to find out whether coming from these ethnic communities would create a different experience for our participants during CoVid-19. We are also interested to learn if these experiences differ when participants belong to a minority sexual orientation.
You may participate in our study if you identify with either Hong Kong, Taiwan, or Southeast Asia as your heritage culture. Southeast Asian countries include Indonesia, Vietnam, Thailand, Malaysia, Singapore, Philippines, Cambodia, Laos, Myanmar, Brunei and/or Timor-Leste. Participants identifying as e.g., Singaporean/Malaysian/Indonesian Chinese/Indians may also participate. We welcome temporary residents (e.g., international students), immigrants and first/second/third/later- generation Canadians who identify with these heritage cultures to join our study. Participants must be at least aged 19. You must also identify as being a man-who-has-sex-with-men (MSM) to join our study. You must have been in Canada for at least 2 years. You must be able to read and speak in English.
We will be interviewing participants on their experiences as Asian MSM. We will ask questions about their experiences before and after CoVid-19 began. We will be interviewing over audio call on Skype for Business between September 2020 and March 2021. We have chosen this software as it is hosted on UBC servers, hence maximizing confidentiality. The interview will be recorded on QuickTime. Some of the questions may result in unpleasant memories, especially when they relate to CoVid-19. If you prefer not to discuss your experiences with CoVid, you may not want to take part in our study. If you do want to take part, you can request to take a break, skip any questions or end the study at any point in time. The interviews will take about 2 hours in total.
We are unfortunately unable to provide any remuneration for participating in our study. Should you be interested, please do not post comments on our post. Instead, please click on the following link: https://ubc.ca1.qualtrics.com/jfe/form/SV_0AItWBRmUD3RQ21.

2020.10.05 16:52 cruxiality Indonesian Citizenship Renunciation after August 2020

I'm currently in the process of getting approval from AHU in regards to the renunciation of my Indonesian citizenship.
The next step is to make an appointment with the Indonesian embassy to surrender my passport once I got the final approval.
Here comes the problem I'm facing. The Indonesian embassy introduced an online appointment system 2 months ago in August 2020 to make any appointment related to Consular services.
And the earliest date I could book for my appointment is 7 January 2021 as all the dates are booked out.
My appointment date for ICA is 29 October 2020 and the longest I could choose from the appointment system is sometime in November 2020 as the application needs to be completed within 2 months.
I've tried to call the embassy and was told that it's not possible to get an earlier date and I should just choose the date available on the system.
In regards to the ICA deadline, she (the lady from the embassy) advised me to contact ICA and ask for a time extension as my application is pending legalization from the Indonesian embassy.
I'm at a loss now. I tried emailing the embassy and immigration to see if they could give me an earlier slot -- still waiting for the reply.
Is there anyone who has been through the same situation before? Not being able to get an early appointment slot at the Indonesian embassy before the deadline stated by ICA?

2020.10.02 08:07 chartreuseeye Various Artists - Funk Music from Indonesia [Indonesia, Funk] (197?)

I've seen quite a few single Indonesian song posts here, but I still like a good compilation to get to know an old scene.
I figure exoticism more than outweighs cheesiness and dated instruments. Despite their age, these songs are a real breath of fresh air, and I like them better when they’re more soothing and psychedelic than funky, as with “Lembur Kuring.” I wonder if they were all originally on 45rpm vinyl singles, as almost all the artists make exactly two appearances. https://soundsofasia.bandcamp.com/album/funk-music-from-indonesia

2020.09.30 04:17 TheCuulandBluu Bizarre, uncomfortable experience while researching naturism (Purenudism)

Preface: doing a bit of research on here, it seems people are already well aware of Purenudism and its related sites, but I'd still like to post what I wrote.

I don't know where else to talk about this. I feel as though I can't bring it up with anyone I know personally, as I don't want people knowing what I've been looking into. But maybe people in this community can understand my trouble. I'm going to be censoring a lot of imagery. If any of this is in violation of the rules, please let me know where I can discuss this. I also understand that by bringing this up I may be unintentionally Streisand-ing certain things that I don't want to get extra attention, but I don't know which would be worse, bringing it up or remaining silent.
TL;DR - while researching naturism, I came across a network of very similar-looking sites (purenudism) that I suspect are displaying naturist photos containing underage people for the purposes of pornographic use.
Long version:
I draw a lot, and lately my art has taken on themes of nudity and nature. As such, I've been getting notices of people adding it to nudist/naturist art collections. As time went on, I became more curious about naturism, so I decided to do more research.
If you search "naturism" in Google, you get this - pretty standard affair. Wikipedia article, some naturist organizations, etc. Thing is, I don't use Google; I use an engine called DuckDuckGo because they don't track your history and whatnot. And they, along with Bing as I found out, give very different results. Searching "naturism" on DDG gives this. Notice that safesearch is set to moderate. Funnily enough, if you turn it completely off, the Wikipedia article shows up, but then so do a lot of porn sites. The same sites take the top slots though.
I visited the first link in the results and this is what I saw. I'm going to censor images, but it's basically a Wordpress blog with a crapton of nudist photos, featuring people of all ages - young and old. Nude beaches, nude gatherings in the forest, etc. It looks like a family album, just one where everyone's undressed. Many of the photos have the subjects looking and smiling at the camera. It's quite friendly, and I know that if I were to visit a nudist/naturist resort I'd probably be greeted by the same imagery in person, minus the photography of course.
You might notice that at the top there's a page labeled "legal notice". If you visit it, you'll find a rather long post about how nothing there is illegal, nudity is a human right, it's protected by the US Constitution, etc. etc. I understand this is fairly necessary given today's mass paranoia, especially when minors get involved.
Okay - so far so good, right? Sounds like I'm just being paranoid. And hey, a site full of nude people of all ages and genders is great for art studies. But here's where things start to get weird. If you go back to the search results, you'll notice there are two other sites with very similar titles and descriptions. The word "purenudism" gets used a lot. And if you visit them you'll notice that they look nearly identical to the first site, with many of them sporting a very similar legal notice. (Side note - I'm not censoring urls because it's very easy to find these sites anyway) In fact, the first site actually links to two separate sites in the header, each with similar formats. When searching the first two pages of results on DDG, I found around ten of these sites, seven of which have nearly the exact same legal notice. And the further you go into the search results, the more of these sites you find. Now I'm not stupid - I know there are dark sites out there, even ones who will try to put on a friendly facade. But what baffles me is that these all seem to come from the same entity, they're all in the top results, and there are so many of them.
These sites have varying degrees of dubiousness. Among all the benign-looking naturism stuff you'll find links like "voyeur beaches" or "nudist girls" or "young/teen nudists". Some of the site headers include images of hentai or cropped porn, along with links featuring very adult-oriented tags. And right next to all that will be pictures of nude children. One of the sites has a set of naturist images which include minors, along with a badge in the header saying, "100% legal" and porn links on the side. And of course it includes the same legal notice as all the others.
The sites appear to be based in various countries. Some seem to be in Russia or Ukraine (or at least mention them a lot) and one in particular has an Indonesian domain but features a copyright in Norway. But no matter what country they're in, they're all written in English (poorly) and their legal notices focus primarily on US law.
I could probably keep going down the rabbit hole, but I think you get the point. I highly doubt these sites exist to show the values of naturism and promote the lifestyle. It seems more like they're there to distribute nude photos of minors for purposes of sexual gratification, while hiding under the guise of being naturist blogs. Their emphasis on it being "NOT A PORN SITE" seems less a decrying of paranoia and more a statement of, "Fuck you, it's not illegal."
I have so many questions. How many people are involved with making and running these sites? They all seem to be kept fairly up to date. Where did all the photos come from? Do the people in them know what they're being used for? Why are DuckDuckGo and Bing so eager to place these as the top results? Why are people so slimy?
I don't know what to do. It feels like a problem I can't solve. But mostly I just feel sad. It's a grim reminder that there are a lot of very bad people doing very bad things out there. This isn't the first time I've been introduced to the subject of naturism only for it to take a turn for the worse, and I know there are much deeper, darker places than just this. It's no wonder there's such high paranoia. It feels like you really can't trust anyone. Which sucks, because nudism on that level looks to be an incredible, spiritually fulfilling experience that I currently cannot do.
That's all I can think to say. Thanks for reading.
