2021.12.02 19:47 badb-crow My sister's now former bridesmaid stepped down because she feels the wedding will be "supporting the devil." Yes, I'm serious.
Sorry about how long this ended up being!
My little sister (29, I'll call her Morgan for this) is getting married in April. We're all very excited! Her fiance is a great guy, and the two of them are really good at throwing bangin' parties together so I know the wedding itself is going to be a ball.
The issue is one of my sister's good friends (up till now) and bridesmaids (again, up till now). I'll call her Brittany (also 29). Morgan and Brittany were roommates in college and have been good friends ever since. Brittany also became close with the rest of our family; after she graduated, while looking for a job in the city, Brittany needed a place to stay, so our mom let her live with her for a while. Even after she got her own place and moved out, Brittany would come to visit our mom. My point is that this girl was a very good and close friend not just to my sister, but to our whole family, for many years.
An important detail, here. Brittany is religious, Southern Baptist to be specific. From what my sister has told me, in college she was sort of your classic "small town Christian girl who has new experiences and broadens her horizons in college" type; she started out very straight laced, but as she spent time with Morgan and the rest of her friends (who have always been very bohemian and secular) she became more open to other points of view and less outwardly evangelical, if that makes any sense. But apparently, after college she sort of started to revert back to her old viewpoint, and started becoming more conservative again. Our family has never been religious; our mom raised us agnostic, basically, and encouraged us to question things, accept all religions, and follow our own paths. Morgan is what I'd call "spiritual, not religious" and actually leans more pagan than anything else; she's into spirits of nature and things like that. Their differences in belief didn't hamper Morgan and Brittany's friendship, though. Up until now.
Brittany was one of the first people that Morgan asked to be her bridesmaid. Brittany accepted, at first. When Morgan gave out the bridesmaid gifts to Brittany and the other girls she'd chosen, Brittany accepted it. But then about a week ago, she called Morgan and told her that she would no longer be able to be in the wedding party.
The reason she gave was, literally, that she believed Morgan's wedding would be "blasphemous" and "supporting the devil." She'd found out that Morgan had chosen a Wiccan priestess to officiate the wedding, and apparently that was the last straw for her. Now, it would be one thing if she'd said that, due to her religious convictions, she didn't feel comfortable participating in a ceremony of a different faith, but she actually used words like "evil," "Satanic," and "sinful" to describe my sister, her fiance, and their wedding. It was like she expected them to be sacrificing a baby to Baal in the middle of the ceremony.
Morgan was pretty blindsided by this, especially as it came a couple of months after she first asked Brittany to be in the wedding party. It's not like Brittany didn't know what Morgan's spirituality was; they'd often talked about it before, and though they'd disagreed, Brittany had always been respectful up until now. Morgan was especially hurt that Brittany said that she was "disappointed" in her for not having a traditional Christian ceremony, when anyone who knew her at all would know that that was never going to be the sort of wedding she'd want. Morgan has a giant pentagram taking up a whole wall of her living room! Even our religious grandparents knew from the start that it wasn't going to be a church wedding, but now here was one of her supposedly best friends acting like it was a personal betrayal.
Brittany said that, even though she could be a part of the "blasphemous" ceremony, she could still be a guest at the wedding. Which is some hilarious audacity, IMO. Morgan shut that down pretty quick, of course, and told her that there was no way she was still invited after all the awful things she said. And they haven't spoken since.
So, finally my question. Brittany works in the same field as me. I see her, very occasionally, through work. I just found out that she's going to be attending a Christmas party that I'll also be at. I'm extremely tempted to say something to her about how she treated my sister. Like, part of me wants to tell her how disappointed our whole family is in how she handled this, while the snarky part of me wants to say something like "oh, we'll miss you during the ritual moonlight orgy!" I'm probably gonna have to say something to her, as I doubt I can avoid her for the entire party. So, what should I do?

2021.12.02 19:47 CollegeBoardUS How good is this letter of reccomendation - do I need to ask for any edits?
Help (Please dont remove this post, it doesnt technically violate any of the rules)
To whom it may concern at Stanford University, Office of Admissions,
I am happy to write a letter of recommendation in support of [REDACTED]. I first met [REDACTED] while he had been a student in the Precalculus Part 1 (MAT 1350) course during the Summer 2021 semester at [REDACTED - but it’s a community college]. [REDACTED] is an Engineering major.
Academically, [REDACTED] is a responsible student who aims high and strives hard to achieve his goals. In our Precalclulus course, he earned the overall grade 94% (A), and was one of the highest performing students in the class out of 15. His final exam score (96%) was the highest in the class, and this was in sharp contrast to the class average (66%), with a few students failing or withdrawing from the course. Even more importantly, however, [REDACTED] displayed admirable personal characteristics and had been very helpful to peers during our virtual class meetings. Never arrogant or boastful, he often asked uplifting questions and helped to bring a harmonious engagement to our class sessions. [REDACTED] expresses a calm and inquisitive demeanor. He is a great listener, thinker, and possesses leadership qualities. What is more amazing is the fact that he was just 14 years old at the time of our course.
In summary, with his above-mentioned qualities and great potential, I strongly recommend Mr. Abd-Elmoniem for admittance to Stanford University. The opportunity to learn at an elite research university, such as Stanford University, would be quite fitting and directly in line with [REDACTED’s] educational and career goals. Likewise, Stanford University would benefit from having a highly capable, highly intelligent student, such as [REDACTED]. If there are any additional questions or concerns, please feel free to contact me at [REDACTED] or via email at [REDACTED]
Thank you, [REDACTED]
Associate Professor, Mathematics

2021.12.02 19:47 livmatus No / problematic Night Shift and docking on my ultrawide Lenovo ThinkVision P44w-10 monitor (M1 MacBook Air)
I use my MacBook Air M1 (base model with 16GB UM) with a 43.4" ultrawide Lenovo ThinkVision P44w-10 with resolution 3840x1200 (32:10)
I am also a Night Shift user. I use Night Shift all day.
What bothers me is that Apple apparently doesn't support Night Shift on displays with wider aspect ratio - as I've noticed people on the internet have a similar issue with 21:9 displays and above - but there was never a solution for that problem.
Surprise surprise - everything works fine under Windows (with 2 of my Windows laptops).
There is a way of enabling Night Shift also on my P44w-10 ... but it is a bit painful. First I have to put the monitor into Picture-by-picture mode so it only displays half the screen with the resolution of 1920x1200 - Night Shift then works as it should... then I opt back for fullscreen mode - kaboom I have Night Shift - but it cannot be turned off or set differently - I have to do the procedure with PBP again. This has to be done after every boot / restart.
Also this solution only works when the monitor is connected via USB-C DP altmode + PD ... or via DP1.4 (directly from USB4 port on the laptop or TB3 port on a docking station).
Another problem is that the laptop often fails to provide display signal on boot / when reconnected... and when it's connected via that USB-C only - it also very often fails to make use of a built-in dock on that monitor - so those extra USB ports don't work. That's why I now use my old ThinkPad Thunderbolt 3 dock (40AC) which has a TB3 out on the front and can pass DP1.4 via that TB3 port - the problem is that it creates mess on the table. Other DP out port on the dock are DP1.2 or HDMI and there's no Night Shift using those at all.
So the only way to have laptop docked via one cable is to use that ThinkPad dock with DP1.4 cable sticking out of front TB3 port on the dock. Then everything mostly works - but Night Shift needs that procedure to be enabled. -----
Does anybody have an idea on how to solve those problem with my current HW so it's just a simple plug&play with no messing around?
No HW itself is faulty - it seems that there are just problems in how they communicate together.
It seems that Apple is very stubborn when it comes to implementing display standards or using third-party accessories in general.
Sorry for a long complicated post. If anything is unclear just ask me in the comment section.

I’ve sold some stocks this year at a loss. Will those losses offset taxes that I owe from regular income or do I need to sell some stocks where I’ve made gains to offset the losses?
Thank you I’m advance.

I’m not sure what life is gonna be like for me. It’s fun to contemplate on those sort of things tho while listening to sad music lol. Message me if you feel lost because chances are I feel very similar. I’m from Tennessee in the US. I don’t mind talking to anyone. I assume a lot of my problems are unique but maybe they’re not. I try to play guitar, but you’re probably better. Music is a big passion of mine however, I’m not capable making it good lol. I love movies of all sorts. I could say some more cliche things but me and you already know them. I’m very sarcastic so be prepared. Tell me your dreams. I’ve always had a hard time relating to conformists. If life goes right for me in the next few years, you won’t see me on Reddit, you’ll see me on TV. I’m a Dreamer but I wont change. I’m supposed to be in class right now, however, I’m next to a river listening to music wishing I was anything but ordinary.

2021.12.02 19:47 8st8k What language and technology would you focus choose if you want to start contracting/freelancing
I've been software engineer for the past 5 years. I am not bound to a specific technology, but I mainly use java/python and sometimes golang.
For the past year I've been thinking of switching my career towards consulting/contracting/freelancing.
What technology and language would you recommend me to start my contracting gig with?
I comfortable learning any technology/language.
Initially I was thinking of focusing on less popular languages that are not in demand but pay a lot (elexihaskell etc..). What are your thoughts on this?

2021.12.02 19:47 Macross-Saga A simple i20 question, 1.2 4 cil engine, clutch start.
I'm wondering if any Hyundai i20 1.2 mpi owners know if this petrol car can start moving without using the gas pedal aka acceleration. Meaning you would use the clutch only. I'm used to starting like that sometimes and also to avoid rolling back on hills with traffic, this is easy with diesel cars but how is it on this particular model, anyone? Thx in advance!
