This is not my main space. Go here to learn about me: * Medium is my main public presence. I've pinned an “about me” article there for the curious. * I think the Fediverse is going to be my main home for social networking. * @[email protected] is associated with my Medium account. I'm treating it as my “global” or most “public” Fediverse presence. * @[email protected] is more “local,” where I hang with fellow Alaskans, but also participate in the larger Fediverse most informally. * This WriteFreely account, @[email protected], is an experimental blogging space, where I can post miscellaneous writings that are neither short enough for a “toot” or Facebook post, nor the sort of polished work for a broad audience that I might flog on Medium. * I sometimes check Facebook * I have a profile on LinkedIn. I hardly ever go there.

One Alaskan voter lets his U.S. Representative know he doesn't buy the oil and gas industry obfuscation and doubt that she is spreading about everything from electric vehicles to new oil and gas development.

I voted for fish, families, and freedom, but I am getting talking points and op-eds from the same fossil fuel industry that is causing global warming (and ocean acidification, threatening our salmon), killing 5 million people globally per year from air pollution (NOT good for families), and spending millions to deliberately deceive people and manipulate legislators — like you — in the name of “free” speech. Who says freedom's not for sale?! An example will help illustrate. You were quoted by KTOO as saying, “Here’s the thing: If you are paying 11 cents a kilowatt-hour, like you are in Juneau, it works really well. But if you’re paying 67 cents a kilowatt-hour and it’s generated by diesel, is that ultimately the right direction? If you live in a community that has affordable energy, electricity rates, and if that electricity is generated in a low-carbon way, then it makes sense. But if either one of those isn’t true, then it doesn’t make sense.” ( Please justify your statement. When I do the math, I find that an EV charged with diesel-generated electricity costing $0.67/kWh costs $0.27/mile to fuel. That's the same as a gasoline vehicle getting 22 mi/gal and paying $6 for gas. What am I getting wrong?!AiGpLPORPDaXjN4zr9QNfDNh5LOv2A?e=DKL7LE And that's just the fuel cost. I also found CO2 emissions are about half. And there are other costs of ownership. I've driven a Nissan LEAF in Gustavus for the past 7+ years (year-round, on bumpy dirt roads, where electricity is about to jump from $0.39 to $0.54/KWh). The only service I've had done is to rotate and change the tires. Not so much as an oil change, because there is none. That makes sense to me. We need to green our grids, including remote micro-grids, and electrify everything. Doing either justifies the other. Your words are standing in the way of starting the transition our rural communities need. Certainly, high energy costs in rural areas need to be addressed. Drill baby, drill is no longer the way to accomplish that (and it never was). We can differ in our opinions, but please get your facts straight — or correct mine. Sincerely, Nate

🫢 Correction: I miscalculated the fuel cost for a battery-electric vehicle using diesel-generated electricity. Before I corrected this blog, I said it was $0.20 per mile, comparable to a gasoline vehicle getting 30 mpg and paying $6/gallon. Correctly factoring in charging loss, it is $0.27 per mile, comparable to a gasoline vehicle getting 22 mpg.

Learning a language by reading novels

Van Gogh, Une liseuse de romans

Van Gogh, Une liseuse de romans

[Spanish version below]

In an interview with Matt vs Japan, Stephen Krashen claimed that for a while his only practice with German was reading novels, and that when he went to Germany some time later, the locals thought he was a fellow countryman. This may seem hard to believe, or at least a somewhat pedantic assertion, but I think there is some truth in it. I believe that by reading novels you can make quite a lot of progress in a language, and perhaps almost all the progress you need, but it also doesn't hurt to add a few ingredients that might be missing from your diet.

I remember one occasion when, after months of private German lessons, I finally decided to take the challenge of reading Kafka's Metamorphosis in the original. In those days I read at night, with a dim lamp and an uncomfortable chair. It took me two hours to get through ten pages. It was a kind of torture, very much in tune with the story of Gregor Samsa, but I was thoroughly enjoying it. The following week I went to class with my teacher and, after fifteen minutes of conversation, she interrupted me: “You're speaking very well! What did you do?”. I hadn't done any more exercises, any more homework, I hadn't practiced my verbs or gone through my vocabulary lists, I had been reading Kafka.

There are several reasons why reading fiction is a great way to learn a language. For a start, the amount of vocabulary is overwhelming. When you do gap-fill exercises, Duolingo, etc., the content you read is, what, ten sentences? Spend the same amount of time on a novel and you'll have read, what, a hundred? two hundred? If one thinks that it is in the comprehension of messages that learning lies (and I do), then texts are a sensational device, there are as many messages in as little material as possible. So many words are thrown at you, every second, that it is impossible for progress not to occur.

Furthermore, fiction is mostly written in the past tenses, which are just the same as those we use to tell anecdotes in casual conversation. This is an advantage especially when compared to materials such as podcasts or YouTube videos, where communication can tend to remain in the present tense. The third reason is that reading novels can be much more fun than doing conjugation exercises, and paradoxically can also be more efficient.

I am satisfied with the level of my French at present, and I think that, beyond some introductory courses, my real progress came when I started to gobble up Flaubert, Stendhal, Balzac, etc. I spent three hours a day with Illusions perdues and L'Éducation sentimental. At the end of those sessions my head was an echo chamber in French, my language production was just a mechanical consequence of that.

However, I also realised, after those months spent in the glory of the French novel, that I didn't really know how to order something in a café or restaurant (but I was already aware of the grumpy and unpatient reputation of Parisian waiters), didn't know how real people spoke in the streets, let alone slang, and probably made a few pronunciation mistakes. Luckily, this is easy to remedy. I think reading novels can be the basis of your diet, a cereal, let's say, and then you can add things (auditory, current and “real”) that make your nutrition more diverse, like music, TV shows, youtubers, podcasts, etc. That's a powerful combination.

Aprender un idioma leyendo novelas

[Please note that the Spanish and English versions are not an exact match]

En una entrevista con Matt vs Japan, Stephen Krashen afirmaba que durante un tiempo su única práctica con el alemán consistía en leer novelas, y que cuando un tiempo después fue a Alemania los locales pensaban que él era un connacional suyo. Esto puede parecer difícil de creer, o por lo menos una aseveración algo pedante, pero creo que tiene algo de verdad. Considero que leyendo novelas se puede hacer bastante progreso en una lengua, y quizá casi todo el progreso que necesitas, pero tampoco viene mal añadir algunos ingredientes que podrían faltar en tu dieta.

Recuerdo una ocasión en que, tras meses de clases particulares de alemán, decidí por fin animarme a leer La metamorfosis de Kafka en el original. En esos días leía por la noche, con una lámpara débil y una silla incómoda. Me tomaba dos horas avanzar diez páginas. Era una especie de tortura, muy en sintonía con la historia de Gregor Samsa, pero lo estaba disfrutando plenamente. A la semana siguiente fui a la clase con mi profesora y, tras quince minutos de conversación, me interrumpió: “¡Estás hablando muy bien! ¿Qué hiciste?”. No había hecho más ejercicios, más tarea, no había practicado mis verbos ni repasado mis listas de vocabulario, tan solo había leído a Kafka.

Hay varias razones por las que leer ficción es una gran manera de aprender un idioma. Para empezar, la cantidad de vocabulario es apabullante. Cuando haces ejercicios tipo gap-fill, Duolingo, etc., el contenido que lees son, qué, ¿diez frases? Pasa ese mismo tiempo en una novela y habrás leído ¿cien? ¿doscientas? Si se piensa que es en la comprensión de mensajes donde reside el aprendizaje (y lo pienso), entonces los textos son un dispositivo sensacional, son la mayor cantidad de mensajes en el menor material posible. Tantas palabras te son aventadas a la cabeza, cada segundo, que lo imposible es que no ocurra el progreso.

Además, la ficción está escrita mayoritariamente en los tiempos verbales del pasado, que son de igual modo los que usamos para contar anécdotas en una conversación casual. Esto es una ventaja especialmente si se le compara con materiales como podcasts o videos de YouTube, donde la comunicación puede tender a mantenerse en el tiempo presente. La tercera razón es que leer novelas puede ser mucho más divertido que hacer ejercicios de conjugación, y paradójicamente puede ser también más eficiente.

Estoy satisfecho con el nivel de mi francés actualmente, y creo que, más allá de algunos cursos introductorios, mi verdadero progreso vino cuando empecé a engullir a Flaubert, Stendhal, Balzac, etc. Pasaba tres horas al día con Illusions perdues y L'Éducation sentimental. Al final de esas sesiones mi cabeza era una cámara de ecos en francés, mi producción del idioma era solo una consecuencia mecánica de ello.

Sin embargo, también me di cuenta, tras esos meses pasados con la gloria de la novela francesa, que realmente no sabía cómo pedir algo en un café o restaurante (pero ya estaba al tanto de la reputación malhumorada y poco paciente de los meseros parisinos), no sabía cómo hablaban las personas reales en las calles, ni mucho menos slang, y probablemente cometía algunos errores de pronunciación. Por suerte, esto es fácil de remediar. Creo que leer novelas puede ser la base de tu dieta, un cereal, digamos, y que luego puedes añadir cosas (auditivas, actuales y “reales”) que vuelven más diversa tu nutrición como música, programas de televisión, youtubers, podcasts, etc. Esa es una combinación poderosa.


from digital-otter

When the hands of two people meet, their emotions change and turn them into a pair of dahlias and small river stones. Lips and glances overlap. They succumb to everything that seems obvious. People scream when they see them kissing in public spaces, some with envy and others with suspicion.

Life was made for intense emotions, but crowds do not multiply emotions. All those heads, all those bodies watching at the same time a television, their cell phones and the news of the day, are not equivalent to an overflowing emotion. The eloquence of the sea, the terribleness of typhoid are nothing but weapons of mass propulsion to drive the seas away from the people. Dictatorships are the disease of today, of yesterday, and of the present.

The shy kiss, the kiss that is given in secret is a cure against fascism. The clouds that disperse and form with their swaying a mound of elemental individuals are the perfect photograph for those who feel lonely. Loneliness is not the opposite of the crowd, but the crowd imposes loneliness as an ordeal, as a punishment for being born a person.

When I walk the streets of my neighborhood you can feel the scent and the fear of the crowd of inflation, war, disease and all the new things that the future holds. Dystopias present themselves in the form of gossip among ladies, and among competition among males. The crowd is the idea and the whirlwind of the intersections that form between the sidewalk and the cracks made by the roots of the trees. Who would say that everything is an old symptom on the tip of the toe and with that we have for someone to decide to establish fascism.

The crowd and the people numb their ailments with small doses of stem cells. The clinics are full of people waiting for a transfusion. Camellias and jasmines are an irremediable cure against melancholy but people don't know it. No one knows how we came to know so much and how we came to ignore so much. Comets tear the sky and destroy everything in their path. Just yesterday the capacity for astonishment was destroyed, but today the toothache could well be destroyed. How many would go out to celebrate the death of a beetle looking at the sun? How many would roll with its body in the sewers of the city? And what about those who shout in the middle of the street announcing a future that seems almost impossible.

Bring a cup and break it on the walls of the nobles. Lynch the landowner and drink his blood, you angry crowds, walking scalps and sleeping beauties. Or do I mean walking beauties and sleeping knights?

The Misery of Translation

Proust, Autographe

[Spanish version below]

I remember being at my friend’s house and seeing on the bookshelf the seven volumes, in Spanish, of In Search of Lost Time. It had only been a few months since I had first read Proust’s work, perhaps I had already read two volumes in the original French, and I warmly approached those seven little books, in a nice, beautiful edition. I picked up the first one and read the sentence, so famous, so resonant in my head as one of the great beginnings of literature, a sentence in a privileged relationship with the greatness of the novel form, but I soon had a huge disappointment: that “Mucho tiempo he estado acostándome temprano” in Spanish was for me like puncturing a balloon, a heresy, something so far removed from “Longtemps, je me suis couché de bonne heure.” There was an abyss between those two utterances. The Spanish words were not so much pale shadows as impostors. I had a sudden thought: whoever has read Marcel Proust in a translation has not really read Marcel Proust.

Of course, translation plays a very important role. It is necessary. The work of translators is noble, underpaid, underappreciated. It is an obscure profession that is absolutely fundamental to global culture and, as Gesualdo Bufalino said: “The translator is obviously the only true reader of a text. Certainly more than any critic, perhaps more than the author himself. For of a text the critic is only the occasional courtier, the author the father and husband, while the translator is the lover.” I myself resort to translations, from Greek, Persian, Sanskrit, difficult languages of which I have no plans to learn. However, I try to do so rarely, to read as few translations as possible, and base my reading list on original texts (which can give me a ghastly Eurocentric diet).

Many people learn a language to talk with native speakers, live in a different country, get a better job, etc. I started learning languages in college with a very clear goal: to read my favorite writers in their original language. I remember my bilingual anthology of William Blake and how reading it aloud in English felt like I was reciting an incantation of cosmic consequences, and reading it in Spanish made me feel like a conservative priest in a small forgotten town in Spain. That original experience motivated my dedication to all other languages, I knew that between reading a translation or the original text there was a world of difference; that, truly, reading the original was the only true reading.

Granted, you can’t learn all languages, you have to resort to translations from time to time and there is no shame in that. Moreover, the translator’s work should be better rewarded and made more visible. However, I think we should also emphasize the enormous pleasure that can be obtained from reading in the original language, the intimacy with the work, the fact of reading the exact words, with the sound, with the order, with the structure that the author intended. To feel that direct, immediate relationship. To read the first sentence of Du côté de chez Swann as it sounded on Proust’s lips. There is a tremendous joy in that closeness, one of the most beautiful fruits of learning a language.

[Please note that the Spanish and English versions are not an exact match]

Recuerdo estar en la casa de un amigo y ver en el librero los siete tomos, en español, En busca del tiempo perdido. Hacía pocos meses que yo me había estrenado en la obra de Proust, quizás había leído ya dos volúmenes en el francés original, y me acerqué con cariño a esos siete libritos, en una edición cuidada, linda. Tomé el primero y leí la frase, tan famosa, tan resonante en mi cabeza como uno de los grandes inicios de la literatura, una frase en una relación privilegiada con la grandeza de la novela como forma, pero pronto tuve una enorme decepción: ese “Mucho tiempo he estado acostándome temprano” en español fue para mí como ponchar un globo, una herejía, algo tan alejado del “Longtemps, je me suis couché de bonne heure.” Había un abismo en esas dos oraciones. Las palabras en español eran no tanto unas sombras pálidas como unas impostoras. Tuve un pensamiento súbito: quien ha leído a Marcel Proust en una traducción, no ha leído realmente a Marcel Proust.

Desde luego, la traducción cumple un papel muy importante. Es necesaria. La labor de los traductores es noble, mal pagada, poco aplaudida. Es una profesión oscura absolutamente fundamental para la cultura global y, como sentenció Gesualdo Bufalino: “El traductor es evidentemente el único auténtico lector de un texto. Por cierto más que cualquier crítico, quizá más que el propio autor. Porque de un texto el crítico es solamente el cortejante ocasional, el autor el padre y el marido, mientras que el traductor es el amante.” Yo mismo recurro a traducciones, del griego, persa, sánscrito, idiomas difíciles de los cuales no tengo planes para aprenderlos. Sin embargo, trato de hacerlo poco, leer pocas traducciones y basar mi lista de lectura en textos originales (lo cual puede darme una dieta espantosamente eurocéntrica).

Muchas personas aprenden un idioma para hablar con los nativos, vivir en un país distinto, conseguir un mejor trabajo, etc. Yo empecé a aprender idiomas en la universidad con un objetivo muy claro: leer a mis escritores favoritos en su lengua original. Recuerdo mi antología bilingüe de William Blake y cómo al leerlo en inglés en voz alta parecía que estaba recitando un encantamiento de consecuencias cósmicas, y al leerlo en español me sentía un cura conservador en un pequeño pueblo olvidado de España. Esa experiencia original motivó mi dedicación con todas las otras lenguas, sabía que entre leer la traducción o el texto original se jugaba un mundo de diferencia, que, realmente, leer el original era la única verdadera lectura.

Por supuesto, no se pueden aprender todos los idiomas, hay que recurrir a traducciones de vez en cuando y no hay ninguna vergüenza en ello. Además, la labor del traductor debería ser mejor recompensada y ser más visible. Sin embargo, creo que también habría que recalcar el enorme placer que se puede obtener de leer en la lengua original, la intimidad que hay con la obra, el hecho de leer las palabras exactas, con el sonido, con el orden, con la estructura que el autor lo quiso. Sentir esa relación directa, inmediata. Leer la primera frase de Du côté de chez Swann como sonó en los labios de Proust. Hay un gozo tremendo en esa cercanía, uno de los frutos más lindos de aprender un idioma.

Going uphill: the first months in a new language Velasco, Popocatépetl

Velasco, Popocatépetl e Iztaccíhuatl

[Spanish version below]

There comes a point in your history with a target language when everything becomes easy. You have a basic vocabulary, you know your way around tenses, you can understand -if not one hundred percent, at least sufficiently- movies, TV shows, books, podcasts, etc. You can enjoy real content, intended for native speakers of the language, even if it’s stuff for teenagers, and then you can devote yourself to pleasure, to spending time with cultural objects that really interest you. It’s as if you’ve reached the top of the mountain and now you can jump off, an easy slide, a snowball effect. Your vocabulary, your inner grammar, your whole knowledge of the language grows without you even realizing it. Soon, subtle and complex sentences come out of your mouth without the slightest effort, or you can read a whole paragraph without even thinking that you are reading a foreign language. You’ve done the hardest part and now everything progresses naturally.

However, the first few days are a different experience. Nothing is natural. The target language is a barrier, a strange material that does not allow itself to be manipulated. You slowly learn separate words, with no idea how to put them together into a coherent sentence. Looking at a page of text is a maze, and listening to two native speakers talking to each other is merely noise. You are going uphill. This is probably the most difficult and dangerous stage in learning a language. Sure, at first you are highly motivated, excited, everything is new, and you can already see yourself in the future, speaking and understanding with ease. That thrill of the new can evaporate at the sight of the first obstacles. The mountain is steep and high, and sometimes it seems easier to give up the desire to climb it.

In my experience, there are three main ways to undergo this necessary stage. The first, obviously, is to give up altogether. The second is to try to stay motivated, to try to keep a constant practice, to do something every day no matter how little, to trust the process, to trust your brain, to keep interacting with the language, to persevere, until one day, sooner or later, three or six or nine months later, you can see the top, you can see how everything is going to be easier. The third is to stay in this stage indefinitely. This is something that I have seen happen with several of my students: the first signs of indecision, lack of confidence, lack of energy. There is little constancy, little desire to face challenges. Days go by and there is no progress and everything remains the same.

This uphill journey is necessary in all language learning. The only thing you can decide is how much time you are going to spend there. If you are determined, if you have a constant practice, this stage will be brief. If your practice is inconsistent, if days go by and you haven’t read or heard a single sentence in the target language, you’re going to stay put, the months will pile up and your knowledge of the language will remain a fragile camp on the hillside. Maybe you take a few lessons with a teacher or group, maybe you have a textbook on your desk, some flashcards in the drawer: at the end of the month, you can count in minutes the time you spend studying.

Uphill is not a good place to be, be sure not to idle there. Keep a consistent practice, do something every day, trust your process, have fun, do things that are enjoyable: children’s books, animated movies, comic strips, use apps, videos. There are many options, even at beginner’s level, to have a pleasurable practice, which is the best way to have a constant practice, and hence, to get to the top fast.

[Please note that the Spanish and English versions are not an exact match]

Llega un punto en la relación con un idioma en que todo se vuelve fácil. Tienes un vocabulario básico, conoces tu camino en los tiempos verbales, puedes entender, si no al cien por ciento, de manera suficiente las películas, programas de televisión, libros, podcasts, etc. Es decir, puedes disfrutar de contenido real, pensado para nativos del idioma, ya sean libros para adolescentes, y entonces puedes dedicarte al placer, a pasar tiempo con objetos culturales que realmente te interesan. Es como si hubieras llegado a la cima de la montaña y ahora pudieras tirarte, un deslizamiento fácil, un efecto de bola de nieve. Tu vocabulario, tus estructuras de frase, todo tu conocimiento del idioma crece sin que te des cuenta. Pronto, frases sutiles y complejas salen de tu boca sin el menor esfuerzo, puedes leer un párrafo entero sin siquiera pensar en que estás leyendo un segundo idioma. Hiciste lo más difícil y ahora todo avanza de manera natural.

Sin embargo, los primeros días son la experiencia distinta. Nada es natural. El idioma es una barrera, un material extraño que no se deja manipular. Aprendes palabras separadas, sin tener idea de cómo reunirlas en una oración coherente. Ver una página de texto es un laberinto, y escuchar a dos nativos hablando entre ellos es meramente ruido. Estás yendo colina arriba. Esta es probablemente la etapa más difícil y peligrosa en el aprendizaje de un idioma. Claro, al principio estás muy motivado, emocionado, todo es nuevo, y te puedes ver a ti mismo en el futuro, hablando y entendiendo con facilidad. Esa emoción de lo nuevo puede durar muy poco ante los primeros obstáculos. La montaña es empinada y alta, y a veces parece más fácil renunciar al deseo de escalarla.

En mi experiencia, hay sobre todo tres maneras de vivir esta etapa necesaria. La primera, obvio, es renunciar. La segunda consiste en tratar de mantenerse motivado, tratar de mantener una práctica constante, hacer algo cada día por más poco que sea, confiar en el proceso, confiar en tu cerebro, mantener la interacción con el idioma, perseverar, hasta que un día, tarde o temprano, tres o seis o nueve meses después, puedes ver la cima, puedes ver cómo todo va a ser más fácil. La tercera es permanecer en esta etapa indefinidamente. Es algo que he visto suceder con varios de mis estudiantes, aparecen los primeros signos de indecisión, de pereza, falta de confianza, falta de energía. Hay poca constancia, pocas ganas de enfrentarse a los retos. Empiezan a pasar los días y no hay progreso y todo sigue igual.

Este camino colina arriba es necesario en todo el aprendizaje de lenguas. Lo que puedes decidir es cuánto tiempo vas a pasar allí. Si estás determinado, si tienes una práctica constante, esta etapa va a durar poco. Si tu práctica es inconstante, si pasan días y no has leído o escuchado una sola frase en el idioma objetivo, vas a quedarte a vivir en ese lugar, van a acumularse los meses y tu segundo idioma seguirá siendo un frágil campamento en la ladera. Quizás tomas algunas lecciones con un profesor o grupo, quizás tienes un libro de texto en tu escritorio, algunas flashcards en el cajón: a final de cuentas, puedes contar en minutos el tiempo que pasas con el idioma objetivo.

Colina arriba no es un buen lugar para estar, no te quedes allí. Mantén una práctica constante, haz algo todos los días, confía en tu proceso, diviértete, haz cosas que sean divertidas: libros para niños, películas animadas, tiras cómicas, usa apps, videos. Hay muchas opciones para tener una práctica placentera, lo que es la mejor manera de tener una práctica constante, el mejor modo de llegar a la cima rápidamente.

from Noah Loren

Suicídio. Um tema delicado que eu vou tratar nesse texto com toda a minha falta de cuidado pessoal. As vezes isso é bom. As vezes é o que precisamos.

Não sei para quem é esse texto. Para as pessoas que estão pensando em se matar? Para os que perderam um conhecido, familiar ou amigo?

É difícil escrever para um completo desconhecido de quem eu não sei nada. Embora quantitativamente o indivíduo que cometa este ato tenha um perfil, majoritariamente masculino, no Brasil especificamente jovens homens negros com até onze anos de ensino e sem cônjuge. Mas esse é um problema que pode afetar qualquer pessoa independente do gênero, idade, classe social ou raça. Trata-se de um fenômeno multicausal que pode ter ligação com cultura, condições econômicas, biológicas entre outras.

Qual o objetivo desse texto? Hoje é o dia da prevenção ao suicídio, esse é o objetivo desse textos? Prevenir! Como prevenir contra uma coisa dessas? Prevenir quem? As pessoas que estão dando sinais de que querem se matar? As pessoas que convivem com pessoas que podem estar pensando em tirar a própria vida? E se a pessoa não der sinais? É um assunto tabu, existe medo e vergonha de se falar sobre isso, e com razão, afinal o mundo não é um lugar acolhedor apesar de muitas vezes as pessoas nos surpreenderem para o bem ou para o mal.

Talvez esse texto seja um desabafo. Em poucos dias irei fazer aniversário, eu sobrevivi a mais um ano. Já aviso que não vai ter festa, somos pobres e cansados demais para isso. Sinto simpatia pelas pessoas que estão pensando em acabar com tudo porque eu também já pensei em acabar com tudo.

Eu vivo numa cidade pequena do interior sem grandes oportunidades, um lugar que não se desenvolve muito em comparação com as cidades vizinhas. Embora eu entenda que as causas dos meus problemas são sistêmicas e como indivíduo tudo o que posso fazer é resistir eu sempre me senti um fracasso. Eu sou uma pessoa autista. Eu não gosto de ser um peso para a minha família. Embora eu saiba que eles me amam de verdade eu ja pensei em me matar porque pensava que isso seria o melhor para todo mundo. Meu desamor por mim, minha falta de autoestima. Eu não sou o que a sociedade chama de exemplo de ser humano de sucesso. Somos todos afetados de alguma forma pela pressão de desempenhar esses papeis que a sociedade nos empurra guelra abaixo.

Eu entendo o que leva um ser humano a buscar consolo na dor. Eu ja me machuquei muito. Acho que é um comportamento mais comum do que se acredita, uma forma de lidar com o estresse. Hoje menos, porque estou tomando meus remédios corretamente e indo a consultas com psicólogo e psiquiatra. Eu sei que nem todo mundo tem acesso a isso, nem todo mundo tem condições materiais de procurar ajuda. Cada pessoa é diferente, nem sempre o que dá certo para uma da para a outra.

Você não é covarde. Você não é uma vergonha. Você é apenas um ser humano.

Ninguem deveria precisar passar por isso sozinho. Mas como julgar uma pessoa que está passando por sofrimento insuportável, intolerável e interminável.

Nesse mundo competitivo e individualista em que a gente vive pode-se sentir tão só mesmo estando numa multidão de pessoas.

A vida é cheia de pequenos prazeres. Mas e quando você não consegue mais sentir prazer em fazer nada? E quando você está a deriva num oceano sem esperança de salvação? Ainda assim a vida vale a pena? As pessoas que se salvaram de tirar a própria vida dizem que sim. Acho que esse é o momento clichê em que eu indico que caso você esteja pensando em se matar entre em contato com o Centro de Valorização da Vida, disque 188. Não me Julgo um ser persuasivo então não tenho esperança de ajudar ninguem com esse texto. Existem coisas que ajudariam mais as pessoas que sofrem desse mal do que palavras. Por exemplo acesso a trabalho digno bem remunerado, moradia decente, saúde de qualidade, contato humano. Acho que um abraço seria bom também? Não sou muito de contato físico mas gostaria de poder te abraçar, secar suas lágrimas, dizer que tudo vai ficar bem e te ajudar com seja lá o que te aflige... isso é meio esquisito? Nem nos conhecemos direito.

O setembro amarelo é importante. Mas as pessoas são meio hipócritas. Chega essa data todo mundo celebra a vida, o resto do ano desdenham das dores alheias. Ah, vão se danar todas elas.

Aonde estavamos mesmo? Acho que é melhor terminar com isso logo. Se ficar muito longo ninguem vai querer ler. As pessoas reclamam dos vídeos do tiktok mas ninguem fala nada do formato microblog e da preguiça de se ler textos longos, eu me incluo nesse problema.

Eu cheguei a conclusão de que gosto de viver escrevendo isso. Não é sempre mas eu tenho os meus momentos. As vezes eu não consigo sentir prazer, as vezes eu não consigo ficar feliz e aproveitar a vida e isso irrita as pessoas ao meu redor. E esta tudo bem. Acho que nesse texto eu deveria celebrar a vida, mas quero confidenciar a você que está lendo que eu também admiro a morte, não de uma forma romântica embora a da DC Comics seja uma gatinha, mas eu idealizo a boa morte, a morte de causas naturais, a morte de velhice, a despedida digna, o descanso eterno. Não estou incentivando ninguem a se matar eu acredito que a morte é o caminho natural após uma vida plena, longa e próspera. O ciclo sem fim, como O Rei Leão nos ensinou. Acredito que tudo tem uma hora certa, e que cada fase da Vida vale a pena ser vivida. E acredito que violar a infância, adolescência, vida adulta e inverno da existência de alguém é algo horrível. Me entende? Se você passou por isso eu sinto muito. A vida é injusta mas ela vale a pena ser vivida nem que seja por mera curiosidade pelo dia de amanhã.

Eu ja me sentie sem vontade de viver. Mas agora eu tenho essa vontade de viver e tudo o que eu queria era poder dividir ela com você. Procurem sempre pela a sua vontade de querer viver. É uma sensação que vale a pena ter.

Introduction 📝

La rentrée scolaire est toujours un moment clé pour les enseignants, les élèves et les parents. Mais en Réseau d'Éducation Prioritaire (REP), cette période peut présenter des défis particuliers. Voici un aperçu de ma première année en REP, où j'enseigne en 6e et en 5e.

Effectifs des classes 👨‍👩‍👧‍👦

L'une des premières choses qui m'ont marqué, c'est le nombre d'élèves dans les classes. Contrairement à la croyance populaire qui veut que les effectifs soient réduits en REP (souvent en dessous de 24), mes classes comptent presque 28 élèves.

Diversité linguistique 🌍

Un autre défi est la diversité linguistique présente dans les salles de classe. En moyenne, chaque classe compte 5 élèves allophones. Ce sont principalement des élèves roumains et ukrainiens, ce qui requiert une attention particulière pour l'enseignement et l'adaptation des méthodes pédagogiques.

Matériel scolaire 📚

L'un de mes objectifs pour la première semaine était simple mais crucial : s'assurer que chaque élève ait au moins un cahier. Pour ce faire, j'ai même acheté une quinzaine de cahiers pour être sûr que tous soient équipés dès le lundi suivant.

Inscriptions futures 📆

Il est également à noter que des inscriptions sont encore prévues au cours de l'année scolaire. Cela signifie que la dynamique de la classe et les défis à relever peuvent évoluer en cours d'année.

Conclusion 🌟

Faire face à une telle diversité et à des effectifs plus élevés que la norme en REP demande un ajustement constant des méthodes pédagogiques et une grande adaptabilité. Toutefois, c'est aussi une opportunité unique d'apprendre et de grandir en tant qu'enseignant.

L'excitation et l'inquiétude du début 🏫🔙

C'est le début de l'année scolaire, et on est tous un peu anxieux. Les premiers jours passent, et on réalise que tout ne va pas aussi bien qu'on l'avait imaginé. Pas de panique, c'est complètement normal ! On passe tous par là.

Chaque année est un nouveau départ ⏳

Il faut comprendre que chaque année est différente, tout comme chaque classe a ses propres caractéristiques. On peut passer une année formidable et penser avoir tout compris, puis l'année suivante, réaliser qu'il faut tout revoir. C'est le charme et le défi du métier.

L'importance de l'adaptation 🧑‍🏫

Une erreur fréquente est de penser qu'une routine qui a fonctionné une année sera automatiquement efficace l'année suivante. Ce n'est pas le cas. On doit être flexible et s'adapter aux besoins spécifiques de chaque classe et chaque élève.

Prendre le temps de réfléchir 🤔

Si on se sent submergé, c'est peut-être le moment de faire une pause et de réfléchir à ce qui pourrait être amélioré. On consulte des collègues, lit des ouvrages pédagogiques, ou prend simplement un moment pour soi.

La route est longue mais enrichissante 🛣️

À un moment donné, cela roulera correctement. Il y aura forcément encore quelques dos d'âne, des moments de doute et de fatigue, mais on ne doit pas oublier pourquoi on a choisi ce métier. Il est enrichissant et chaque petite victoire, chaque moment où on voit un élève progresser, rend tout cela en vaut la peine.

En conclusion 🌟

On ne devrait pas s'inquiéter si le début d'année est difficile. Avec du temps, de la patience, et un peu de flexibilité, on trouvera notre rythme. Et même s'il y a des obstacles en cours de route, on sait qu'on sera capable de les surmonter. 💪

I am eager to present an exploration on capitalism, when I’m fully funded. We only get the things we pay for, so is it any wonder that we get so few thoughtful presentations on alternatives to capitalism? Instead we get memes. It’s all we have energy to offer.

Not too long ago I rolled my eyes at critiques of “capitalism” as boogyman. It’s the catch-all complaint, no further thought necessary. May as well be railing against the Illuminati, fluoride, or aliens. Except that capitalism is the real system that we all live under, and its effects are evident and provable.

“What’s the alternative?” is a reasonable reaction. For me the alternative is flirting with poverty. ;) I’ve started appending, “when I’m fully funded,” to most of my ambitions. It isn’t a joke. If anything it’s sad. I’m making it clear that there are definite projects I would have more time and energy to complete if I were paid to do them. I do not expect it to happen, but I make the appeal honestly, as a way of respecting myself.

To my current funders I offer thanks and apology. You’re not getting much return on your expenditures. Because I am not fully funded I am not fully functioning. Not even close. The preferred path that leaps to mind is for a creator to keep their day job while slowly building the viability of their side hustle. A few problems there. I don’t believe that all good things are marketable. I believe that’s the reason the world is as bad as it is. We have a system that only encourages specific types of behaviors. Those behaviors are not life sustaining, they are capital producing.

In looking for a metaphor for my prior employment, I considered, “X steps forward, Y steps back.” And whether I was getting slightly ever worse, or ever so slightly better, time was running shorter day by day. Metaphors are never fully accurate, though. If I picture 3 steps forward and 2 steps back I see slow progress. The metaphor is leaving out wear and tear. Processes are going on simultaneously. Every “step back” is painful and destructive. Apply this metaphor to society and our “steps back” have death tolls! In my personal life there are mental and physical health tolls. I’m not great now! So how can I say I am making steps forward? I know that I am viewing life differently. I am trying to accomplish various “steps forward” that I wasn’t even considering before.

Capitalism isn’t just economics. It’s a mindset. If I say that I want to produce {a, b, c, …} work and I don’t think it’s marketable, most brains under capitalism respond, “Then don’t do that. It’s not worth it.” No matter how much we meme that what matters is what’s inside, love, feelings, God, the sunset, or whatever, the truth is that most of us have fully absorbed the belief that if it’s not worth money it’s worthless. This mindset is driven into us every millisecond that we are conscious. There’s even a caring, humanitarian angle to it: “You have to take care of yourself; it’s priority number one, before you can consider anything else.” Never: “Can’t we all take care of each other, even strangers?”

I feel I’m in a really shitty position because I want to spread ideas that transcend a money mindset and I need funds to do it. Seems contradictory, huh? This writing represents at least 30 minutes of unpaid work that few will see. So why? Paradoxically, everything I do is me jumping up and down saying: There are good reasons besides money and attention to do stuff. (And I need money and attention to keep at it!) Sigh. For as long as I’m able I will continue to develop ideas that present alternatives to capitalism. I’m writing a sci-fi story about how a better world might be structured. I am exploring noncommercial spaces where I can hang out and share and build community. And every time that I “offer content” I do my best to avoid coercion, marketing, and advertising. I try to act in concert with my values that our world will improve when more minds are free.

I got better sleep last night. I’ll try to improve my functioning today within severe limitations. Who knows what’s possible when I’m fully funded…

Effortless Data Transformation With AI CSV Converters

Data transformation is a vital part of any company’s workflow. It unlocks outstanding value in different business sections by standardizing data sets for unified analysis and reducing computational errors.

Effortless AI CSV Converters streamlines the process of interpreting and analyzing large datasets, turning raw files into more accessible and understandable formats. Learn about the main types and stages of this process to make the best use of it. AI-Powered Extraction

For organizations that work with a variety of unstructured data, finding ways to streamline this influx can be a significant challenge. Unlike structured data, unstructured information often comes in the form of a web page, an image or handwriting and may not conform to a pre-defined format or schema. This can make it difficult to extract and upload into an Excel spreadsheet for further analysis.

To overcome this, many businesses opt for AI-based tools that can automatically extract data from unstructured sources and transform it into a structured format that can then be uploaded into a spreadsheet. This can eliminate the need for manual data entry, resulting in higher productivity and cost savings for businesses.

One such solution is Humata, a smart AI assistant that enables users to search and extract information from CSV files. The tool uses Natural Language Processing and Optical Character Recognition to scan documents similar to the way humans read text, as well as recognize text in different languages. It also features sentiment analysis, which allows it to understand the context of a piece of text and identify the emotions behind words.

Another option is Levity, a smart AI document processor that can convert PDFs, images and handwritten documents into structured data for Excel, and even rename file formats and resize them when necessary. This allows business analysts to quickly and easily access the right information for their analysis. The tool can even automatically parse data from emails and extract keywords from scanned text to create an automatic email newsletter.

While automating the extraction of data from various unstructured sources can help, it’s crucial to ensure accuracy and consistency. To reduce errors, a smart AI solution can be used to analyze the structure of each document, including its columns and rows. This allows it to detect any anomalies and identify any potential issues before they occur. This can significantly reduce the time spent on data management, freeing up employees to focus on more critical tasks. This can be an invaluable benefit for businesses of all sizes, ranging from small to large enterprises. AI-Powered Conversion

AI technologies can help businesses increase their conversion rates in a number of ways. For example, they can be used to identify customer behavior patterns and trends that might otherwise go undetected by humans. They can also be used to automate processes and reduce the burden on human support staff. This can help businesses to provide better customer service and improve the overall customer experience.

Another way that AI can be used to improve conversion rates is by using predictive analytics to make predictions about future customer behavior. This can allow businesses to target specific customers with more targeted marketing campaigns. In addition, predictive analytics can also be used to improve the effectiveness of current marketing strategies and improve business outcomes.

Effortless Data Transformation: The use of AI-powered CSV converters can simplify the process of handling large datasets by intelligently interpreting and structuring data into more user-friendly formats. This can save businesses a significant amount of time and effort, as well as reduce the risk of errors associated with manual data processing.

There are a number of AI-powered CSV converters available online, and most are easy to use. Many of these tools offer a simple and straightforward user interface, allowing users to select the files they want to convert and specify the output format. Most of these tools also have a built-in feature that allows users to download the converted file directly from their website.

Other AI-powered CSV converters are designed to be more advanced and feature a range of different functions. For example, the Be CSV tool is a multifunctional utility that can convert CSV files into a wide range of dynamic formats, including tables and lines, KML, XML, YAML, and text. This tool can be used to easily transform data from various sources, including databases and spreadsheets.

A good CSV converter will be able to handle a wide variety of file formats, making it a versatile and flexible tool for businesses that require extensive data processing. It should also be able to perform complex operations, such as filtering and sorting, and should have an intuitive interface that makes it easy for anyone to use. AI-Powered Analysis

Data analysis is an essential part of any business, but it can be complex and time-consuming. This is especially true when dealing with large datasets. Fortunately, AI can help. It can transform CSV files into more usable formats and make the data easier to understand, thereby saving you time and effort.

In the field of AI/ML and Data Science, CSV is a key file format for storing and exchanging tabular data. It is also an important source of information for machine learning models, and it supports the training and evaluation of these models by providing ground truth labels alongside predicted values.

As the most common format for storing and exchanging tabular information, CSV is highly versatile and offers many different features for organizing and transferring data. CSV files are often used in conjunction with other data analysis tools such as Excel, but the structure of these formats can vary widely, and some tools do not support CSV.

For example, an Excel spreadsheet might have missing values or differing data types, while a CSV file may contain a mix of dates, times, and other information. This makes it difficult to compare and analyze the data. A data transformation tool can help by converting the varying date formats into a standard MM/DD/YYYY format, which will make it easier to use and compare the data. AI Kanban Board Creator

Akkio, an end-to-end machine learning platform, offers automated data transformation capabilities that make it easy to prep, train, and deploy models regardless of the data type, format, or source. Its automated features include ingesting raw data, handling missing values or differing data types, splitting datasets into training and test sets, encoding multi-value categorical features, transforming data into a numerically understandable format, and more.

The CSV-GPT Google Sheets integration brings this power to your fingertips, facilitating effortless, user-friendly data exploration and analysis. Using GPT-4, it can automatically detect and translate the most relevant parts of your CSV file, allowing you to make meaningful and insightful discoveries within the data. Its intuitive UI ensures that even users with a limited knowledge of Excel and data analysis can easily benefit from its capabilities. AI-Powered Integration

Data management is one of the most challenging tasks for businesses. It requires combining data from different sources, transforming them into unified formats and then importing these transformed files into systems. This task is often time-consuming and error-prone. AI-powered CSV converters make this process easier by automating the transfer of information. This allows users to focus on analyzing their data more efficiently and effectively, boosting productivity and reducing the risk of errors.

Using an AI-powered CSV converter, you can import and convert any type of file into an editable Excel spreadsheet document or a more structured data set. The resulting file can be edited in the same way as any other Excel document, with features like flexible functions, formulas, VBA code and Regex expressions. You can also use the tool to extract tables from scanned documents, PDFs and images. This way, you can analyze qualitative feedback from your customers or clients in a more efficient manner and take action to improve your business.

AI-powered tools for CSV integration are gradually automating the entire ETL process by enabling business users with less technical knowledge to create and maintain DI pipelines. This is achieved by leveraging natural language processing and machine learning (ML) algorithms to understand the context and semantics of data. This allows them to perform a seamless mapping of fields between two sets of data. It reduces the complexity of the process and enables business users to focus on identifying hidden patterns and trends from curated data sets.

In addition to the aforementioned benefits, AI-powered CSV converters also offer other significant advantages. They allow you to use a consistent delimiter, such as commas, tabs or pipes, and ensure consistency in the formatting of the values within each column. This simplifies the interpretation of the data and enables you to apply more advanced operations, such as feature engineering or statistical analysis.

The best part is that these tools are easy to use and don’t require any coding skills. You can simply upload your CSV file, select the format you want and click “Convert.” Once the conversion is complete, you can download the final AI file. You can also try a free trial of the software to see how it works.

RapidFinil's Impact – Realizing Enhanced Focus

Fortunately, it is possible to improve your focus. One way is to learn to say no to distractions and other things that are not important. Another way is to focus on processes rather than outcomes.

A study that involved fMRI brain imaging and a celebrity naming game has found that our brains can form direct links between environmental cues and enhanced focus. This is a useful ability when working on complex tasks. It Helps You Concentrate

Whether you're trying to absorb new information for an exam or knocking out that project at work, concentration is a critical skill. It allows you to remain on task until the job is complete and helps ensure that you don’t miss any important details in the process.

But staying mentally focused can be challenging in a world where distractions are literally always at your fingertips. When your phone buzzes with notifications, the social media apps demand an immediate response, or the car radio offers up a steady stream of talk shows and music tracks that threaten to derail your train of thought, it's easy to get distracted from your focus.

It's even harder to concentrate when you feel drained and exhausted. That's why it's important to recognize when you need to take a break, and also to make sure you’re well rested before you start working again. If you have trouble concentrating, try taking a few deep breaths to calm your mind and body.

Improved creativity: Concentrating fully on a task allows you to enter a flow state, which can stimulate creativity and help you see things from new perspectives. This can lead to breakthrough ideas, and it can also make solving complex problems much easier.

Stress reduction: Studies have shown that enhancing your ability to concentrate can reduce your overall levels of stress. This is because focusing on the present moment helps you to let go of worries about the future or anxieties about the past, allowing you to approach your tasks with a more calm and composed mindset.

Increased efficiency: When you are able to concentrate for longer periods of time, it's easier to complete your work more quickly and accurately. This can translate into higher productivity and improved performance at work, school, and home.

It’s possible to boost your ability to concentrate by limiting the amount of time you spend on distracting activities, avoiding caffeine and other stimulants, eating a healthy diet that supports brain health, and getting enough sleep. You can also use productivity tools like noise-canceling headphones, and mindfulness meditations that promote relaxation and focus to support your efforts to concentrate. It Helps You Focus on the Right Things

Developing your ability to concentrate and stay focused can help you prioritize tasks, enabling you to be more productive. It also helps you make better decisions by giving your full attention to a task, which allows you to consider its nuances and consequences. rapidfinil legit

The ability to focus is crucial for learning new things, achieving goals, and performing well in a variety of situations. Fortunately, building your mental focus is possible—though it takes time and practice. The more you work on it, the stronger your concentration becomes. The key to becoming more mentally focused is to understand and eliminate distractions, such as the constant pull of your smartphone or social media notifications.

You can do this by putting your phone on airplane mode or turning it off completely and ignoring all the notifications that come up. You can also try implementing warm-up routines, embracing the natural ebb and flow of your focus, incorporating focus-enhancing nutrients, and strategically using caffeine.

Ultimately, the most important thing to remember is that focus means saying no. This doesn’t mean that you can’t do other things in the future; it just means that you need to give your full attention to one thing in the present moment. It Helps You Stay Motivated

When you stay focused, you’re able to work quickly and efficiently. That means that you can complete tasks much quicker, and you’re also likely to produce higher-quality work. It’s important to remember that building your focus doesn’t always happen overnight. In fact, even professional athletes require a lot of time and practice to develop the razor-sharp concentration that they have.

Having a clear vision of the goals that you want to accomplish is one of the best ways to stay motivated. This could be a specific business goal or a long-term personal goal. Whatever it is, you should make sure that the goals are S-specific, M-measurable, A-achievable, R-realistic, and T-time bound. This will ensure that you are taking small and effective steps to accomplish the goal, preventing your efforts from becoming overwhelming.

Another way to stay motivated is by minimizing distractions. This can be done by working in a quiet place and turning off or putting away your phone. In addition, you should try to surround yourself with positive people who will help keep your motivation levels high. Likewise, you should stay away from negative people who will discourage you from pursuing your goals.

If you find yourself losing focus, it’s important to identify the source of the distraction. This may be a physical object (like your phone) or a psychological behavior (such as ruminating about the past or worrying about the future). Once you’ve identified the source of the distraction, you can take steps to remove it from your environment.

Additionally, if you’re struggling to stay motivated, it’s important to remind yourself of why your goals are so important. This can be a powerful motivational tool, especially on days when you don’t feel like working. It’s also helpful to set short-term and long-term goals, as well as to break down large end results into smaller steps.

Building your focus is not an easy task, but it’s essential if you want to achieve success in all aspects of life. By implementing warm-up routines, embracing the natural ebb and flow of focus, incorporating focus-enhancing nutrients, and leveraging caffeine strategically, you can improve your ability to stay motivated and achieve your goals.

Forex Trading in Nepal – How to Avoid Being Scammed

Forex trading is a popular way to make money. It can be a profitable investment, but it can also lead to losses if you are not careful. This article will provide tips on how to avoid being scammed.

While forex trading is legal in Nepal, there are restrictions that apply to individual traders. This article will focus on the Nepal Rastra Bank Act and Foreign Exchange Regulation Act to understand the prevailing regulatory framework. Legality

Forex trading in Nepal is legal as long as traders adhere to local tax laws, which include a capital gains tax. In addition, traders should always stay updated with changes to local forex trading policies and seek professional advice if necessary. It is also important to choose a reputable broker and maintain accurate records of trades.

In order to trade forex in Nepal, you must first register with a foreign exchange regulatory body, such as the NRB. This will ensure that you comply with all applicable laws and regulations, including those governing money laundering activities. Additionally, the NRB will provide you with a guideline manual for forex trading that will help you avoid any illegal activities.

NRB’s regulation of forex trading in Nepal aims to prevent money laundering and other illicit financial activities. To do this, it enforces strict foreign exchange regulations and imposes penalties on companies that engage in forex transactions without following the rules. The NRB also works to control illegal forex trading activities by monitoring regulated foreign exchange transactions.

Despite the fact that Forex trading is a popular investment option, it is important to do your homework before investing in this market. Many beginners do not realize that Forex is a highly volatile and speculative market, so it is important to educate yourself on the risks involved before you start trading. Moreover, you should always keep your risk exposure in check and use only small amounts of money in your trading account.

In addition to being a lucrative investment opportunity, forex trading can also be an excellent source of income for residents of Nepal. As a result, it is essential for beginner investors to follow the guidelines set by the NRB to protect themselves from scams and fraudulent activities. Regulation

Forex trading is a complex market, and it’s important to follow the rules. It’s also important to understand the basics of risk management and stay up-to-date on market analysis. This can help you avoid mistakes that can lead to losses. In addition, it’s important to use reputable brokers and only invest money that you can afford to lose.

For Nepalese traders, the best way to trade forex is through a trusted broker. These brokers are regulated by a government agency and must adhere to certain rules. They also offer a demo account that can help you practice trading strategies before investing real money. Moreover, they should be able to speak multiple languages to communicate with customers. This helps to prevent any misunderstandings and ensures that all transactions are carried out in accordance with the law.

While the Foreign Exchange Regulation Act does not explicitly mention individual forex trading, it still regulates the market and prohibits people from engaging in unauthorized activities. This is a good reason to make sure you are working with a reputable and regulated broker.

Another thing to consider is taxation. The Nepali government requires that forex traders disclose their profits for tax purposes. This information is used to calculate your taxable income, and failure to comply with this requirement can result in heavy fines.

While the regulations from Nepal Rastra Bank limit individual forex trading, many forex brokers will allow you to open an account with them and fund it using Indian rupees or digital currencies like Bitcoin that aren’t tied to a sovereign nation. However, be careful when selecting a forex broker. Some may be scammers and will steal your money. ข่าว forex factory Trading platforms

Forex trading is an exciting and potentially lucrative venture for those who are interested in foreign exchange. However, there are some important things to keep in mind before you start trading. These include avoiding any scams or fraudulent activities, as well as complying with the country’s regulatory framework. Also, it is important to understand how forex trading affects the local economy and financial system. If you are unsure about how to get started, it’s best to seek professional advice before trading.

The Forex market is a global decentralized marketplace where traders buy and sell currencies. This market determines the foreign exchange rate. There are two main types of forex trading: spot trading and futures trading. Spot trading involves buying and selling currencies at the current market price, while futures trading is based on contracts that specify an agreed-upon price at a specific time in the future. Futures trading requires a greater understanding of economic factors that impact prices over time, so it is generally only used by more experienced traders.

There are a number of forex brokers in Nepal that offer different trading platforms and services. However, not all of them are created equal. It is vital to research the different brokers and choose one that suits your needs. You should also look for a broker that is regulated in your home country and has a good reputation. Also, make sure you know which type of currency pairs you are interested in trading and how much leverage you want to use. This will help you avoid any surprises down the road. Scams

Forex trading is a legitimate activity, but it is not without risk. It’s important to do your research and be aware of the risks before you participate in this market. There are many scams and fraudulent activities associated with forex, and it’s important to keep an eye out for them. The following are some common scams to watch out for:

One of the most dangerous forex scams involves a fake software program that claims to be able to automate trades and make profits. Such software is usually untested and can be misleading. It can be very difficult to tell if a software product is trustworthy or not, and it’s recommended that you never use it without a thorough testing.

Another type of scam is a Forex pyramid scheme, which lures investors by promising high returns on their investments. Traders are encouraged to recruit other people, which moves them up the pyramid and increases their profits. The scammers usually demand a small upfront investment from new members.

In addition to trading, some forex scams involve unauthorized funds transfers and payment apps. These frauds are often committed by fraudsters who gain access to a customer’s mobile phone, using a screen sharing app that allows them to monitor and control the customer’s device.

Another type of forex scam involves a point spread. This is a difference in the bid and ask prices for a currency pair, which is typically a commission for a back-and-forth transaction processed by a broker. These scams are usually computer-managed, with fraudsters manipulating the bid-ask spread to appear as if they’re making profitable trades. This is an old scam that has reduced in popularity due to increased oversight, but it’s still a significant issue for traders. Profitability

Forex trading in Nepal is a potentially lucrative investment option, but it’s important to understand the risks and rewards before deciding to invest. For starters, it’s vital to consult with a financial advisor to learn about the different trading strategies and risk management tactics. In addition, traders should consider cultural differences that may impact the success of their investment goals. For instance, misunderstandings regarding business practices and expectations can lead to losses. Additionally, many traders make the mistake of focusing too much on technical analysis and not taking into account fundamental factors that influence currency prices. As a result, they lose money quickly.

Its network of top freelance developers, designers, and finance experts is a valuable resource for enterprises.

There are five primary freelancer categories: developers, designers, finance experts, and project managers. Each category is further broken down into sub-categories.

The finance experts section includes consultants who can provide services like financial modeling, market sizing, and startup funding. The project managers section contains digital and technical PMs, scrum masters, and more.

The Toptal freelancing platform offers a number of benefits for businesses, including $0 recruiting fees and a two-week zero-risk free trial for each freelancer you hire.

PeoplePerHour is a freelance marketplace that allows businesses to find the perfect talent for their projects. Its services range from editing, writing, and programming to design, video, and marketing. Its website also provides a number of tools to help businesses streamline their workflow, such as instant messaging and project progress monitoring. Businesses can even rate a service seller right from their dashboard.

The company specializes in breaking the 9-to-5 working model, offering flexible and cost-effective solutions. Clients can hire freelancers by the hour or per project, and they can even opt for a fixed price contract to get a better deal. Moreover, the platform encourages repeat buyers by rewarding them with lower rates.

Buyers can use the platform’s search filters to narrow down their options based on skills, experience, and rates. They can also choose to wait for proposals from freelancers, which gives them the flexibility to explore different options. Furthermore, buyers can create an offer bundle to send multiple jobs at once and save time.

Freelancers can easily connect with buyers through the site’s project streams, which provide all communication details in one place. They can chat in real-time, share attachments and notes, and receive feedback from the buyers. Moreover, they can even set milestones and deadlines in the project stream. Businesses can then pay for the work once they are satisfied with it, and the funds are held in escrow until this is done.

PeoplePerHour has a wide variety of freelancers from all over the world, making it easy to find talent. However, some consumers have reported that this site is not effective at screening for scammers. They have found that buyers often use the site to find the cheapest workers possible and that their projects are often not completed. Moreover, they have found that the withdrawal process takes a long time. Fiverr

Fiverr is an online marketplace where freelancers and independent contractors offer their services. All gigs start at $5, making it an ideal entry point for those new to freelance work. It also allows freelancers to build skills and gain experience. In addition, it helps businesses find the right talent for their project, without having to hire a full-time employee. However, there are a number of complaints about the site. Some customers say they were scammed by freelancers or received subpar work. Others report that their website was hacked or that they were asked to pay extra after signing a contract. Sitejabber has a page dedicated to user reviews of Fiverr.

Freelancers can work in a variety of fields, and can also choose their own hours. Some work full-time as gig workers, while others have a permanent job and engage in gig labor as a way to supplement their income. The future of the Gig Economy is likely to increase in the near future as more people leave traditional jobs for temporary employment opportunities.موقع يلا سواب لبيع الخدمات المصغرة

Gig economy jobs are short-term contracts and can be performed from anywhere in the world. These jobs can be very flexible and can allow you to make a great living. They can even become full-time careers for some people, especially in the creative industries.

Gig workers must be able to manage their time and finances effectively in order to maximize productivity. This is because their earnings are dependent on how much they accomplish in a given timeframe. Those who can create their own schedule and stick to it are most successful. Moreover, these individuals must be able to communicate with clients in a professional manner and deliver results on-time. Upwork

Upwork is a great platform for freelancers to find work and communicate with clients. Its features include a built-in time tracker, a chat option, and the ability to filter freelancers by geographical location. It also has a reputation system that helps freelancers build their profile and get more jobs. However, it can be difficult for freelancers to find the right gigs and earn enough money to make ends meet. This is especially true for new freelancers, who may be tempted to take low-paying projects.

Upwork allows freelancers to create a profile that shows their skills and experience, and then submit proposals to clients for specific tasks. If a client likes a proposal, they will then award the freelancer the job. The freelancer will then complete the work and submit deliverables to the client. When the work is complete, the client will review the freelancer’s performance and rate them. This information is then posted to the freelancer’s profile for other clients to see.

In addition to the ratings, Upwork also has a number of safeguards to ensure that freelancers get paid for their work. For example, for hourly rate projects, Upwork takes screenshots of a freelancer’s computer every 10 minutes, and these are stored in the freelancer’s work diary. Clients can then check the work diary to confirm that the freelancer has billed them correctly.

In addition, Upwork has a Payment Protection Guarantee that protects freelancers from fraudulent clients and ensures that they receive the payment they are entitled to. However, some users have complained that Upwork’s support team is slow to respond to their requests. This is a common complaint across consumer review sites. Freelancer

While the gig economy has many benefits, it can also be challenging for freelancers. Some of the biggest challenges include financial management, self-marketing, and inconsistent income. Fortunately, there are ways to overcome these obstacles. In addition, freelancers can benefit from having a network of other gig workers. This can help them find new opportunities and build relationships. Moreover, they can use coworking spaces to meet other freelancers and share work-related resources.

Gig workers do not have the same employee benefits as traditional workers, such as paid time off, company-backed health insurance, office space, or matched retirement contributions. Therefore, they need to plan ahead for their expenses. They should also consider their work-life balance and how they will manage their time. It is also important to set aside some money in case they cannot work for a short period of time.

Some people choose to pursue a freelance career because of the flexibility it offers. Some of these people are full-time freelancers and earn a substantial income from their work. Others work as a side hustle to their primary, traditional job, such as driving for rideshare companies or doing home service tasks. Aside from the flexibility, freelancers also have more control over their working environment.

Gig work has become a popular alternative to traditional employment, especially for women. For instance, 80% of women on DoorDash said that flexibility is the main reason they pursue gig work. This is because women need to balance their family responsibilities and careers. Moreover, many of the highest-paying gigs are female-dominated, such as caring for children and elderly people. Interestingly, the most lucrative gigs also require technical skills. For example, the purchase and sale of websites can yield six-figure incomes.
