2021.12.06 07:58 jonesinforone Can I ask my gf to exercise?
I’m 24 she’s 22.
She hasn’t exercised at all for about a year now. It’s bothering me.
I exercise a lot I really like it. It’s part of my lifestyle. It used to be part of my gf’s but she stopped.
She keeps saying she doesn’t like the weight she’s gained (and tbh it’s significant) but she won’t do anything about it. I’ve offered to take her to the gym with me, pay for a membership, go on hikes. Anything. She doesn’t do it but says she’ll do it later.
It’s turning me off quite a lot. And sometimes it’s making me feel a bit sexually frustrated coz I don’t really like the weight gain.
Can I actually ask her to work out somehow? Or am I just fucked.

2021.12.06 07:58 gradenko_2000 A Review of Rice Tariffication in the Time of COVID-19: Rationale and Road to Rice Self-Sufficiency in the Philippines
Abstract: The Philippine government passed the Rice Tariffication Law (RTL) in 2019, despite a strong and united peasant opposition to rice industry liberalization, which the RTL facilitates and further accelerates. Amid falling Filipino farmers’ incomes due to the deluge of imported rice, negligible milled rice price decreases for consumers, rising rice prices globally, and in the context of the COVID-19 pandemic that has already disrupted food supplies and is poised to cause continuing instability in the price of imports, this paper is aimed at reviewing recent rice tariffication policy literature. Such review will be a springboard in making a case in favor of RTL’s reversal and presenting alternative policies towards prospective rice self-sufficiency in the Philippines. The paper contends that the RTL will only encourage the Philippines to rely on imports and also fail to make the local rice industry more competitive. Hence, the local rice industry must be supported rather than allowed to be gobbled up by liberalization, especially that the COVID-19 pandemic proved that countries cannot always rely on food imports. The paper prescribes drastic investments in agriculture and R&D, rural solar electrification, and promotion of more agriculture-oriented research focused on increasing yields, boosting productivity, and planting sustainably as feasible steps in the road to rice self-sufficiency.submitted by gradenko_2000 to Philippines [link] [comments]
Meanwhile, Cororaton and Yu (2019) noted that full liberalization lowers “import price of rice by 32.9%, which leads to 113.3% increase in rice imports,” decreases output prices of paddy and rice, and reduces “consumer price of rice by 14.7%” (p. 176). Their simulations also showed that rice tariffication at 48.9% tariff rate (proceeds of which are allotted to “cash transfer” to vulnerable sectors) with “rice imports at the previous quota level” (Cororaton & Yu, 2019, p. 176). will reduce the import price of rice by only 0.13% and will also actually slightly cause the consumer price of rice to rise by 0.26%. The same study pointed out that “gradual reduction in tariff” with “cash transfer” will result to lower import price of rice by 8.13%, and consumer price of rice by 2%.” Hence, in Cororaton and Yu’s article, price movements will depend on what form of liberalization is adopted. Parallel with Mendoza and Torres’ assertions, Cororaton and Yu’s simulations showed that “retaining the protection on domestic paddy production through tariffication and earmarking the revenue generated as a cash transfer to poor households will reduce poverty considerably by four million in 10 years” (p. 180). Meanwhile, it is interesting to note that one quantitative study (Bacud et al., 2019) offered a relatively different perspective, as it found out that “imposing tariffs results to increasing wholesale prices as well as farmgate prices,” which “would mean that more consumers will shoulder price increases as brought by tariffication” (p. 79).
Guzman’s (2019) policy brief is the only anti-tariffication paper among the surveyed literature; it strongly criticized RTL as “it will worsen the jobs crisis and poverty”. Guzman (2019) explained that “...the law imperils the more important dimension of accessibility – which is people having adequate incomes and livelihood – by subjecting the Filipino rice farmers to undue competition with subsidized imports”. Guzman’s criticism is buttressed by the peasant sector’s declaration (Federation of Free Farmers et al., 2019) on the vastness and importance of the country’s rice sector which “accounts for around 20% of the gross value added (GVA) of Philippine agriculture...employs 2.5 million households, broken down into 2.1 million farmers, 110,000 workers for post-farm activities and 320,000 for ancillary activities” and supplies “90% to 95% of the country’s rice requirements. The welfare of rice farmers...is therefore crucial in ensuring the food security, economic well-being and political stability of the country”.
Cororaton and Yu (2019) remarked in their conclusions that “the influx of imported rice will definitely affect the income of rice farmers” (p. 180). Perez and Pradesha (2019) computed that with a 35% tariff rate, “producers are set to lose US$29.73 billion...for the 20-year period 2020–2040,” and in all tariff scenarios, “producers lose” (p. 7). Mendoza and Torres’ paper (2019) pointed out that the policy could “put pressure on some farmers’ incomes” as “they face stiffer competition from imported rice,” especially in provinces such as Occidental Mindoro and Negros Oriental where, as in similarly uncompetitive provinces—“some farmers may need safety nets” (pp. 3-5). Even in seemingly competitive regions, many farmers complain that RTL caused palay prices to drop (Fenol, 2019; Inquirer Northern Luzon, 2019; San Juan, 2019).
Beyond the typical discussion on the policy’s impact on farmers (which was a feature of other available literature), Tobias’ (2019) paper also discussed more negative effects of tariffication on various sectors: (a) lack of safety nets for Filipino farmers; (b) displacement of rice farmers, NFA employees, 90,000 accredited NFA retailers, 6,600 registered rice millers with 55,000 workers; (c) shortage of rice by-products such as rice bran (used for making animal and aquaculture feeds), and binlid or brewer’s rice (used for alcoholic drinks), possibly leading to price hikes of pork, chicken, and beer; (d) shortage of rice hull (“used as fuel for biomass furnaces” and “as a binder for cement and land fillers”); and (e) resurgence of the rice trade cartel, which would push more people to go hungry. Both Tobias (2019) and Guzman (2019) pointed out that there are no guarantees that unlimited rice imports would mean lower retail rice prices, with the former warning that reliance on imports makes “the country vulnerable to higher world market prices as well as to rice production and export decisions of other countries.” Tobias (2019) noted that Vietnam, India, and Pakistan “restricted their rice exports amid rising global rice prices” in 2008, and Guzman (2019) emphasizes that “the global rice market is narrow. Only 9.7% of global production ended up in the global market in 2018,” with rice exporting countries consuming 90% of their production, in this world of uncertainties where “nothing replaces the role of stable local production in moderating the impact of emergencies.” Guzman (2019) provided evidence on how the rice cartel took advantage of supposedly cheap rice imports: “...global rice has become cheaper due to increased production and exports after the 2008 crisis, but this did not translate to cheaper local prices...what the Philippine market had from 2011 to 2014 was record increase in smuggled rice and escalating rice prices at an annual average of Php1.20 increase per kilo.” Only Tobias and Guzman acknowledged the strong possibility (if not continuing reality) of private cartel abuse under RTL.
Furthermore, Guzman (2019) provided broad counterpoints to the government’s claims on cheaper global rice. On historical Thai and Vietnamese rice prices, Guzman asserted that “despite fluctuations and recent global trends showing that export prices are going down, global rice prices have actually increased since 2016” (2019. Using government statistics, she further remarked that “the landed cost of imported rice is not dramatically lower” as in February 2019 when the landed cost yielded “a still more expensive imported rice ranging from Php44.08 to Php44.75 per kilo” (2019). On tariffication’s impact on peasants, Navata (2017) digressed with the rest by claiming that tariffication is also beneficial to small rice farmers because they “are net buyers of the commodity” (p. 6). Moreover, his paper noted that “at 35 percent tariff, which is the current rate under the Association of Southeast Asian Nations (ASEAN) Free Trade Area, local farmers would have price advantage..and about 35 of the country’s rice producing provinces will be able to compete directly with their Vietnamese and Thai counterparts” (p. 5). The 35% tariff rate is now proven insufficient to maintain what Navata called as local farmers’ “price advantage,” with even Senator Imee Marcos (2019), a very pro-government legislator, joining the clamor for a higher tariff rate (500% to 800%). Unfortunately, just this May 15, 2021, instead of hiking the tariff rate on imported rice then (40%), President Rodrigo Duterte reduced the tariff rate to 35% by signing Executive Order No. 135 (Office of the President, 2021).
Sharing some general conclusions with Mendoza and Torres (2019)—especially on peasant empowerment—and emphasizing that food self-sufficiency is rooted in other structural socio-economic reforms that the country needs, Guzman blasted RTL as a means “to further justify open trading system and liberalization of traditional sectors such as agriculture” which “violate the people’s right to food, their right to access resources...such as having free land to till and state support as well as their right to produce food of their own choice and decisions” (2019). She added that RTL “eventually abrogates...the people’s inalienable right...to participate in, contribute to, and enjoy development processes.”
Overall, most of the literature analyzed clearly claimed that rice liberalization or tariffication will be generally good to consumers as imported rice is expected to be cheaper even with tariffication. Almost all of the literature reviewed also favor tariffication as a policy. On the impact of rice liberalization on farmers, almost all surveyed researches concede that this policy is generally bad for local peasants. All papers—despite majority of the reviewed literature’s support for tariffication—pointed out that the law’s adverse effects on local farmers will have to be cushioned by strong measures. The available literature—except for Tobias’ and Guzman’s short discussions on cartels—did not discuss how foreign rice exporters and local corporate interests will benefit much from the rice tariffication policy. Such discussion is necessary to shed light on the overall pros and cons of the law on a macro-level.
Other than mentioning countries where the Philippines imports rice from, the surveyed literature failed to offer comparative perspectives on past and parallel tariffication/liberalization experiences of other countries too. Finally, the surveyed literature also lacks clear plans for the long-term competitiveness of the domestic rice industry, which, arguably, is an essential element of food security—a declared State policy. Even a more recent study on RTL’s domestic and international impacts (Balié & Valera, 2020b) only mentioned salient policy prescriptions in its conclusion, but without any elaboration. To complement such positive suggestions, this paper will also outline a plan towards rice self-sufficiency that could help Philippine policymakers to implement the State’s own objectives stated in the RTL’s declaration of policy: “...to ensure food security and to make the country’s agricultural sector viable, efficient and globally competitive” (Rice Tariffication Law, 2019, Section 2).

So I have a question, I thought that once an encounter drops a specific weapon it should drop that same weapon all week until reset.
I got the hand cannon on the first boss encounter but after running it about four times it then drops a sniper.

2021.12.06 07:58 pitch_blacck How do you cope day to day when seeing an attractive women is enough to ruin my entire day?
I'm fucking beyond weak and pathetic ok? I know I post a lot and am a total sad bore and waste of everyone's time but so much builds up and there's no fucking way I could tell anyone the truth about how I feel. I see an attractive women and two things go through my mind: she would never in a million years think you're attractive, and if you tried to get close she could only be repulsed by you. It's just an unspoken rule that lvm like me don't bother women. Second thing is what is wrong with you you subhuman piece of shit? There are women you're not attracted to and you don't have any choice who you end up with. It's OK for women to be shallow and demand her guy has a full beard all the muscles and protect her at all costs but I'm a shallow pig of a man if i want to be with someone who has an ok ass for example but I know for a fact I could never be with anyone because I'm skinny and feminine and attractive women ONLY like manly men. And i know I'm even more of a fucking bastard for saying attractive but I know for a fact even women who are 600 pounds still get hot boyfriends and would puke at the sight of me. Im just such fuciimg garbage I can't get over THIS ONE THING. If i could just let go if this one need i could live, but there's nothing life is so bleak and empty

NiP signed one of the best AWPers and yet they are giving him a rifle more often than not - especially on the CT side, where he is known for his defensive/passive AWP playstyle.

Who do you guys normally ask when your interviewing company asks for a reference check? If possible, could you break it down by years of experience when applying for the job, such as new graduate, middle career, seniodirector, etc? I'm still a student but want to get a head start in understanding how industry works, but I never really understand who you would ask for references, especially when you are job hunting while still working in a position?
