With the beautiful, powerful, and sexy Madame Chiang Kai-shek at the center of one of the great dramas of the twentieth century, this is the story of the founding of modern China, starting with a revolution that swept away more than 2,000 years of monarchy, followed by World War II, and ending in the eventual loss to the Communists and exile in Taiwan. As World War II drew to a close in 1945, Chinese leader Chiang Kai-shek, of the Nationalist Party, met with Communist leader Mao Tse-tung in the southwestern city of Chongqing. The next year, civil war erupted between the Communists and Nationalists, eventually leading to a bitter split in 1949. The Nationalists fled to Taiwan and set up a government there, essentially severing the island from ...

2021.12.08 16:39 Thiscat First of the final bosses help.
I went into Sin perhaps a bit underprepped because it's my first time. Maybe I was just confident because it didn't take me many tries to do Yunalesca. Even final Seymour was fine but Jecht is wrecking me.
I've been able to rely on Holy that I rushed with Kimhari for a lot of bosses but he deals too much DPS for my party to be slowed. If anyone dies I'm basically screwed because of the turn delay after a Phoenix Down doesn't give me enough time to get buffs back on them. I don't have Flare which is probably important. The only zombie weapon I have is for Tidus and the only Stone resist is on Yuna (I thought I had more not sure what happened to it all).
I have some zombie resist I haven't used which might be okay.
I charged Rikku overdrive for Mighty G, unless there's something better I should be using it for.
A skill sphere I could use to give Tidus armour or strength break (which would be better) or maybe alchemist to Rikku or Tidus.
I was buffing Bahmut with my remaining spheres but it seemed pretty negligible if there's a better use for them...
A white magic sphere I could maybe give haste to Rikku or Yuna or maybe Curaga to Rikku but Yuna would probably be doing more damage anyways.
I have a bunch of black magic spheres but I don't see much use without flair. Is there something better than the final tier elemental attacks I'm forgetting about?
My party is Yuna Tidus and Auron with Rikku switching in sometimes heals. Yuna buffing and doing Curaga on him while Tidus and Auron try to zombie and break him and support with potions. Using summons to tank his phase 2 overdrives and talk after they all inevitably die but I'm still getting messed up just from his sword attack and if anyone in my party dies that's either lost progress while I spend time buffing them back up or I just lose and Tidus and Yuna ain't exactly the tankiest so replacing someone with my tankier Rikku might be better... Oh and I have only like 3 MP items left so yeah.
Anyways help would be appreciated.

2021.12.08 16:39 No_Panda_469 The "dream job" in a guitar factory
A while ago I quit my job that I worked hard to get. I traveled out of state to go to a school that specialized in guitar building and now I am here to warn people who are thinking of going into my industry.
I worked as a guitar builder in a factory for about 3 years. The job was pretty great until the boss started getting involved in production. It all started when he fired our senior employee (who had been there for 8 years and trained everyone in my department), for asking him not to yell at us. He fired him on the spot called him a loser and cussed him out. I should have walked out there but I didn't want to lose my "dream job".
Over the next couple months my boss started making us all work mandatory overtime, not stay for one or two hours more, that was if we were lucky. It was more like stay another 4-8 hours until we met the rediculous quota.
More back info on how a guitar factory works. First it starts in woodshop where the instruments are cut out in a CNC machine (even though we advertise our guitars as "completely hand made") then is sanded then moved to paint where it gets an under coat to seal the pours in the wood, then color coat, then a clear coat and is left to dry for 2 weeks. After the 2 weeks it then goes to polish department where it gets sanded flat and polished to bring back the shine. Then it finally comes to final assembly where we put it all together, electronics and everything.
And background on my former boss. He is suspected of being a major coke head. Not cola, I'm talking cocaine. Often he would be caught mumbling to himself and going off on random tangents to nobody. And when asked who he was talking to he would react the same way as some shaken awake would, and would have this look of absolute bewilderment on his face before running off. He also was prone to tantrums, yelling and screaming and cussing out his employees and a couple times threats of violence and a couple time he ripped the white board off the wall (we use this for keeping track of production) and kicked at it until it shattered. It was not unusual for him to throw things across the room either. Also not as bad, just really creepy, he had this book that he kept with him, that he would keep track of how many times we looked at our phones, went to the bathroom, got water or coffee, how many times we talked to someone and much more. To say this guy wasn't right in the head was a major understatement. Okay, now that the background has been established, back to the original story.
Our boss was demanding 20 guitars built a day, where woodshop was only able to produce 13-15 a day, because the CNC machines can only go so fast. And when that didn't being the numbers up, he started doing mandatory 6 day work weeks, on top of our 50+ hour 5 day work weeks. I distinctly remember looking at my paycheck after working 64 hours and thinking, it was not even close to worth it.
Then the straw that broke the camel's back happened. Our particular factory shuts down for about a week and a half to observe the winter holidays. Since everyone there usually requests those days off, they decided it would be easier to shut it down and give everyone the time off. They then came in and said that they were no longer doing that anymore. And that was the final straw for me. I finished my shift and then left a note saying I quit and that the hours working, the horrible boss and now our reward for hard work and benefit for working for them was taken away, were the reasons I was leaving. My former co-workers told me that my boss threw all my tools across the factory and that he tried to destroy my bench after he read my note. He then did his usual bull and called me a loser and cussed me out.
I talked to my coworkers and contacts to see if there were any jobs available that didn't have this work environment. I found out that most every guitar factory has this kind of dynamic and what I have read on this sub-reddit, it's pretty true of all factories.
Tldr; Guitar industry is toxic work environment, had a suspected cocaine addicted boss that over worked us (60+ hour week if we were lucky), was abusive, took away vacation time and PTO and that this is pretty standard for the industry.

I haven't missed an earnings call since I jumped on. I guess I'll have to listen to it after, and miss the moment live.
Someone out there record it please? (I know you will)
Boo, work sucks.

2021.12.08 16:39 rubenamizyan Does MITRE ATT&CK SOC assessment certification worth getting?
Currently, I am a SOC analyst intern, and as I go through, I like what I am doing, but aside from the technical perspective I also really like the Governance in cyber security. So I wanted to ask if is it worth taking the MITRE ATT&CK SOC assessment certification ( almost finished the training in Cybrary) in perspective of governance or in general. One more question I wanted to ask is about what kind of benefits does it gave you after you obtained the certification. Thanks in advance

I've heard that many academic careers in both STEM and Humanities are highly competitive. What about geography? I'm referring mostly to human geography with focus on social and population geography. Is it hard to get a job at university? What are the relations within the academia?

2021.12.08 16:39 Officerkc New "budget" laser engraver
Whats up everyone. Ive never used a laser engraver in my life. Never even really thought about them until my cousin got one and my wife wanted one for xmas. I bought her this for christmas. It seems pretty similar to what our cousin has. The wife has a cricut that she uses to make shirts and stuff, but wanted to do some wood engraving with her mom.
So i guess my questions are
Does anyone have experience with this?
What materials does it use? Can it really cut through thin wood (like does it have to be paper thin!?)?
What are some fun things to do with it? I am sure my wife will find things, but I am just curious.
Here is the model I got. Thanks for any help.
