2023.05.30 23:34 chumtaco Capital One Travel Portal (warning on using your credit)

A little disappointed in this, but I recently used the travel portal to rent a car. I had yet to use my travel credit for the year, so I booked a car that worked out to a little over $300. The base rate was $175 and all the various taxes and fees were about $125. The portal charged the base rate up front, with the remainder to be paid when I turn in the car. Long story short, I only received travel credit ($175) and 10x back on the base rate, and did not get travel credit or 10x back on the remainder.
I called customer service to inquire about when the remainder of my travel credit would post and was told that it wouldn't. It wasn't made clear to me during the booking process that this would be charged or credited like this. I asked if there were scenarios where the full rental would be credited and/or earn 10x back and the rep said yes, but was unable to give examples.
I guess I'll just use the credit/portal for hotels only as I had in the past, but with all the nerfs since I obtained the card (loss of PP restaurants, continuously delayed lounges, price matching policy change) I am not in love with the card as much as I use to be. It's not the end of the world but it's the first time I've been disappointed by Capital One.

If utopia is coming out in June, the nba finals (which begins June 1st) would be a great place to promote the album like Kanye did with donda in 2021. Would be the perfect time to drop the trailer for the album if theirs a trailer. Would love to see something utopia related. A big stage with a lot of viewers to get more buzz for the album.

2023.05.30 23:32 PaperHeartTrip The fact that I'm a veteran and I've never heard of "military appreciation month" before, but they paint the crosswalks in the city 🌈 in June makes this point louder than the meme

The fact that I'm a veteran and I've never heard of
All I get in may is a few awkward "than you for your service"s on memorial day where I have to explain what memorial day is about, or just day thank you.

2023.05.30 23:31 Azolee95 Husband wants to move away from me - Found out he's lying and cheating

I (27 F) need to file for divorce against my husband (25 M). He brought up a couple of weeks ago that he is moving back home to Florida and we live in Hawaii. This happened around May 17th ish. He has MS and wants to move back home to be with his family who can take care of him. He doesn't plan on getting a real job (he wants to work at a Gamestop) and he plans on coming back to Hawaii every 6 months for his health treatment. In the beginning, I begged him not to go and he said it was my fault because I was never around. And later on, I suggested we could be in a long distance marriage and try to work it out. Fast forward to May 27th, I come home and I had this weird gut feeling about something. I snooped through his phone and saw him messaging 2 girls. One of them, he was talking about "platonically" having cute babies and how beautiful she is and how she would fall in love with him and him taking her on dates when he gets to Florida. And how she should "pick him" and he is begging her to wait for him. the 2nd girl, is calling him a "versatile lover" and how she loves him more and he loves her for her. I felt so disgusted and just have a pit in my stomach just thinking about it.
Anyways, I don't know the best way to go out the divorce. I am planning on moving back home to my family, but want to settle everything before I move back. We have to break a lease as well as sign a car over to my name. He doesn't know that I know about this. He leaves on June 20th back to Florida. I dont really know how to go about this, so any advice is greatly appreciated

2023.05.30 23:31 vendemia Manic father abroad

Last weeks have been a crazy ride.
My dad has always been an extrovert, when he started posting photos of his travel abroad doing fun things like trying a punk haircut or jump from a plane I was not taking it seriously, naively thinking he was having a midlife crisis, having lost a mother and had a couple rough months. However his messages began to be religious, he was seeing the ghosts of my family, he introduced us to his angel, a girl he found wandering the paradise with a guy called Gabriel. He told all his friends his stories with her and announced us that he was going to marry her and not work anymore handing all his business to me (I do not work with him). I really began to wonder wtf was going on.
I did some research and found out the girl is a prostitute and that was the reason we were starting to see my father’s bank account being emptied, he was living in 4-5 stars hotels making extravagant plans of buying a boat to sail the Atlantic and pacific to escape the end of the world, this is when all the sailing he had done was on a small lake.
We started to try to talk to him about coming back but every time he rejected our attempts aggressively. I was starting to be angry at my him so I decided to start investigating what was going on. It didn’t take me long to find out that my dad is bipolar. It hit me, I always felt that my dad was hiding something from me, I don’t blame him maybe he wanted to protect us.
Knowing that, I took the first flight and made plans with my dad. However when arriving there I didn’t find him. Only after two exhausting days did I have a contact with him, after visiting all the hotels were he had been thrown out and the police, he had lost almost everything and was looking really bad and drunk.
I was glad to find him but I knew that the most difficult part was coming, I had to convince him to go back. I spent countless ours trying to talk him into coming with me, at first he was almost ready to follow me but as the time went by he started to oppose me. I tried everything, even made all my family and half is friends call him to convince him, but nothing.
I came back alone, as the situation was getting serious we had to make a decision. We called the judge and the judge called is psychiatrist. It turned out the psychiatrist was in contact with him all along, but he was confrontational and he had stopped taking his pills. The decision was fast and an order to hospitalize him in my country and put him in guardianship was signed. The order was carried out abroad and he was hospitalized yesterday. The plan is obviously not to leave him there alone and to get him back here asap. I’m just afraid that my dad is intelligent and may seem lucid to some foreign naive eye. If he is released then we will not be able to do anything for him.
I’ve never wanted this but I think it’s for his good. Maybe he will thank me one day, maybe he will hate me.

2023.05.30 23:31 flowerchild147 Planning questions?

I’m eloping to Mexico and having a beautiful ceremony at a cenote next year. I’m booking an all inclusive hotel for my stay that is complete luxury. My question is, I want to host a beautiful private dinner for 7 of us on the property of the hotel but don’t know who I go to, to plan this? Do I hire a wedding coordinator? Event planner? Do I just talk to the hotel? They offer private beach dinners but to couples.

2023.05.30 23:31 -caturday-night- Winery recommendations near San Gimignano

We're staying a few nights in June near San Gimignano with a rental car and planning to spend one day driving to 4-5 wineries. Having done some research on which wineries to choose without driving all over a wide area, there's a ton to choose from and I'm having trouble narrowing it down. Your recommendations would be helpful! Here's a few criteria we've got: *Not more than an hour's drive from SG. *Dry whites and/or medium-full reds are our preference. *Will buy several bottles to take with us... prefer spending <50 euro/bottle... ideally less than 25 euro/bottle. *Nice views with small, quick tastings (we're driving so don't want to drink much) for the purpose of knowing what we want to buy. *One place to have lunch... could be a winery or not.
And... do we need to make reservations for the tastings or can we just arrive during their open hours?
Thanks in advance!

I used Stable Diffusion with Controlnet to do iterations of a hotel lobby. The purpose wasn't to decide how to finish the interior, but rather to help visualize the space in order to make decisions about transparency/ glazing, and get a sense of scale.
Would normally render something like this in Rhino or Revit with Lumion or Enscape. I thought it would save time to use AI, but it took awhile to set up the line drawing so that SD understood the space correctly, so it took longer than expected. What was unexpected is that sometimes when SD interpreted the space differently, it made me think about differently, and gave new ideas.
Process:
  • Export hidden line 3d view from Revit
  • Bring line drawing into Controlnet with Lineart_Standard and Scribble
  • Edit prompts and adjust line drawing, iterate

Hi Kyoto people. Is anyone here familiar with the bouldering gyms in the city?
My daughter will be visiting the city in mid-June, but she's preparing for a comp so she wants to visit a local gym to stay in shape. Do you have recommendations for one that would be convenient for their hotel near Kyoto Station? We're looking for a place that's accessible, has challenging boulders, and where a non-regular wouldn't feel unwelcomed.
Thank you in advance!

# Team Δ Comment Record
1 Rays 0 Everyone's favorite myliobatiformes played another good week of baseball with the return of Tyler Glasnow. The Rays took an exciting series against the Dodgers after recharging during a weird mid-series rest day against the Blue Jays. Wander Franco is making his case to be starting SS in the All-Star Game, just make sure you don't accidentally vote for one of his brothers. It's still super weird to watch the offense carry while the bullpen struggles, but with guys coming back it should be f--, wait, Fairbanks is hurt again. 39-17
2 Rangers +1 Series wins against both the Pirates and Orioles the last week has the club holding the 3rd best overall record in the majors. Go Stars. We're still having fun. 34-19
3 Braves -1 3-4 last week and we started this week off with a loss against the Oakland "Triple A's" which is not good Bob. On the VERY brightside, we saw Soroka pitch from an MLB mound for the first time in almost 3 years. He pitched well and we need him to perform as we are absolutely depleted by injuries. Riley is starting to come to life. We hold a 4 game lead on the scond place MARLINS. Our division doesn't want to take advantage of our recent struggles, that's fine by me. 32-22
4 Dodgers +1 33-22
5 Orioles -1 A few weeks ago, I said if the Orioles can go at least .500 in May then they are for real. They wrapped up a winning month yesterday and have three games to go. They continue to play well, even though they lost the series against the Rangers, and seem to play better away from Camden Yards. They did, however, send Grayson Rodriguez down this week to AAA. He just has some stuff to figure out. He was getting crushed in his past few starts, and it was the right move to make. This solidifies the fact they need a frontline starter if they are going to make a serious push to get to and make noise in the post-season. 34-20
6 Astros 0 Jose Abreu finally hit a home run. All is right with the world. Unless the world's name is Lance McCullers Jr., who had another discomforting setback and we have no idea when we will see him this year. I still blame his hair. Anyway, our other Jose hit a grand slam at MMP this weekend. Where have we heard that before? 31-22
7 Yankees 0 It certainly would’ve been nice to take 2/3 from Baltimore, but it’s very hard to be mad at the Yankees’ month of May. Since May 1, the Yankees are 18-9, a huge turnaround from a .500 April. As we enter the dog days of summer, the top of the AL East is tightening up, but the Yankees don’t face either of the teams ahead of them again until July. The Yankees have to keep playing at this pace, and a Stanton (and maybe Rodon??) return could seriously help that. 33-23
8 D-Backs +1 The Diamondbacks had a decent week, barely missing out on a sweep of the Phillies before dropping a series to the Red Sox. The offense gets on base but has been allergic to driving in RISP, and the starting rotation continues to be a merry-go-round, as none of the rookie pitchers on the team seem to be able to string together several good starts in a row without getting blown up once or twice. 31-23
9 Blue Jays +1 The Jays' first series win since May 14th pulled us out of a bad-vibes tailspin the likes of which this fanbase hasn't seen since, well, the last time everybody freaked out over a losing streak. The usual suspects' continued confounding slow starts (Manoah, Kirk, Varsho, etc) have dropped us 10 games back from TB, last place in the best division in baseball. And YET, hope springs. Berrios (3 or fewer ER in 8 of his last 9 starts) finally appears to be pitching to the level expected of him when he was signed, and is pumping out quality starts along with Gausman and Bassitt. Kikuchi has slipped as Kikuchi does but has been very solid for a #5. We don't have the depth to send Manoah down for some needed alone time, but he's pushing it. Vladdy has been scuffling, Springer is heating up, and Bichette is an MVP candidate. With a little bit of lucky regression to the mean with abysmal RISP numbers, this team is just a few turns away from being very good. As long as we don't have to play too many games vs AL East teams. That should be fine. 28-26
10 Twins -2 28-26
11 Mariners +4 Just what the doctor ordered - 6-1 in the homestand so far. Some momentum is just what this team needs before two big series with teams they're chasing for playoff spots. If the M's can handle business over the next week, they'll be right back in the thick of it. Bryce Miller, do your thing. Up next: 3 vs. Damn Yankees, 3 @ Globe Life ParkFieldStadiumGardensArenaDomewhatever they're calling it these days 28-26
12 Red Sox -1 Scoring four runs total while getting swept by the Angels isn't a great look. This team is in many ways aggresively mediocre, always making sure that every win streak is followed up by an equally painful gut-punch. This is mainly due to the reliance on the offense to carry us to victory (2-17 when scoring <=3 runs), when the bats get cold, you're safe to turn off the game. Whitlock returning from injury and Bello/Sale both stepping up their game in May (2.74/2.42 ERA respectively) are good steps towards this team becoming Actually Good™ though. We'll see what June brings us... 28-25
13 Brewers -1 Taking two of three from the Astros was nice. Barely avoiding a sweep from the Giants was not so sweet. Milwaukee has some issues with hitting in "close" situations. The Brewers either lose after having multiple opportunities to tie it up, or get absolutely blown out. 28-25
14 Angels 0 Did I travel out of state and all the way to Anaheim just to watch the team get swept by the Marlins? Perhaps. Was that objectively worse than what the Reds voter is going through? It's impossible to say. 29-26
15 Mets -2 The Mets, who I proclaimed to be "good at baseball" last week, ended up dropping 2 of 3 against the Cubs and doing the same against the Rockies. I just don't know what to believe anymore. The only thing I know for sure is that Francisco Alvarez has got that fucking dawg in him, he's GOATed, he's him, he's on fleek, he's poggers, he's a proper legend, he's got an .885 OPS, he's a top bloke, he's got swag, he's fresh, he's Gen Z Mike Piazza, he's lit, he's making me feel old because he was born after 9/11, he's Francisco Alvarez. 27-27
16 Gigantes +4 The Giants won yesterday, but strictly talking about last week, they went 5- 2 on an extremely acceptable road trip without any off days. Defeating two competent teams like the Twins and Brewers should feel good. On both losses, they gave up 7 runs, on every win they gave up 3, 1, or 0 runs. So, they threw two games out of 7 – that’s allowed. In the bad news department, Joc, Joey, and Thairo all not expected back until June 6th. I think we’re okay with more Bailey Patrick and this also means another look at unpredictable slugger David Villar. Slater continues covering for Joc. Let’s look a the numbers: 13th in MLB in Run Diff (+6 spots), 12th in RS / G (+6), 15th in RA / G (+2), 23rd in Bullpen ERA (+5). All of that is good and especially the bullpen is promising recently. The Giants continue at home vs the Pirates and wrap the homestand with 3 against our orange and black brothers in Baltimore. 28-26
17 Pirates -1 Would I have been happy to learn on Opening Day that the Pirates would be around .500 at the end of May? Yes. But if you told me they got there after starting 20-8 I would be pretty disappointed. Here's hoping the pendulum swings the other way in June. 26-27
18 Marlins +3 Yet another appearance of sweepy, the meme that was promised. After a rough series against the rox, we sweep the angels to settle into the third NL wild card spot. Our starting pitching is coming along after a bumpy start to several of our starters. Eury perez is gonna be a stud, just wanna remind yall. Also, shout out to Jorge Soler, who has been crushing baseballs the last week and change. In other miami sports related news, boston is the first city ever to lose two game 7s at home in both the NHL and NBA playoffs in the same year. Go Heat and go Panthers! 28-26
19 Phillies -2 After losing 2 to the Diamondbacks and going down 5-0 in the 3rd game, the Phillies season looked as bleak as it could in late May while only being 4 games under .500. However, the team rallied and Trea Turner tied it in the 9th before going onto win it in 10. Then, they went down to Atlanta and split a 4 game series. It could've gone far worse. The Phillies most pressing need is now seemingly a 5th starter who isn't a guaranteed loss, as this week they trotted out Dylan Covey, who hadn't started a game since 2019. He got 2 outs and gave up 7 runs. He took the spot of Bailey Falter who, after a surprisingly productive 2022, started the season 0-7. Falter is the far better option, but Dave Dombrowski will likely be looking to upgrade until Andrew Painter can finally return. This week, the NL East road trip continues with their first 3 games against the Mets and 3 in Washington. Here's hoping June Schwarber shows up again this year. 25-28
20 Padres -1 My Dad tells me it’s ok that the Dad’s lost 2 / 3 to NY; the Dodgers lost 2 / 3 to the Rays! The Pads aren’t in the same stratosphere as the Dodgers right now, though. 5 games under .500, 10th in the NL standings, 3 games out of the last wildcard slot. Of course there’s quite a bit of time to change it, there’s plenty of time to go on a run, or a slow and steady good month to gain ground. With every day that passes however, that goal becomes a bit harder to reach; I don’t think Pads fans were hoping for a wildcard spot by the end of this season, but that’s the position the team has to get to before even thinking of catching LA. The Padres are 4th in the NL West, and only a half game out of last. 24-29
21 Cardinals -3 2-2 @ CIN; 1-2 @ CLE; 0-1 v KCR; another struggle week for the Cards. The fandom's been a bit kneejerk because of two good weeks before this. Their mistake. I'll say it a third time, the Cards playing at or beyond their expected level doesn't change the rotten FO. Yeah Marmol's pretty close to being fired, that's not a fix when the problem is John Mozeliak. 24-32
22 Tigers +2 The most fun part of this past week has been watching the resurgence of Akil Baddoo. His energy is infectious and adds an exciting dimension to the lineup. As we head into the last few days of May, Baddoo has sported a .302/.405/.508 slash and a 155 wRC+ this month. Although he's still been hitting mostly in the 6 hole, if this keeps up he might find himself much higher in the order real soon. This week: 2 more vs. TEX and 3 at CWS. 25-27
23 Guardians 0 The Guardians won a series this week. I would like to see them win some games by more than one run, but it's clear this season, we have to take what we get. 24-29
24 Cubs -2 Another terrible week for the Cubs, as a promising series win against the Mets was followed up by an embarrassing sweep against the Reds. The starting rotation was terrible, and the bullpen was somehow worse. Fans have had enough of David Ross, and Jed Hoyer is starting to come under pressure. Barring a dramatic turnaround, the Cubs will be sellers for the 3rd trade deadline in a row 23-30
25 Reds +1 Okay guys, I’m here to be calm this week. I have been told by my wife’s attorney, Tom, that they are “aware” of my online activity regarding our impending divorce, so today let’s have a nice, calm, relaxing, perfectly fine, good old fashioned talk about Reds baseball. The Reds are just sorta middling. They’re not great but they’re not horrible. Unlike my marriage. Our starting pitching has resgressed, just like my marriage, and it’s very unfortunate to see, because our bullpen has been quite reliable unlike my wife. We still can’t hit home runs for some reason, but overall unlike my marriage the Reds on the upturn. There, are you happy Tom? I didn’t mention all the crap that’s been going on lately. I didn’t mention how I had to leave the Motel 6 I was at because I found a used needle in the bathroom, and by the way Tom, I know that you’re trying to use that as evidence that I can’t take care of my kids. I don’t even know who’s needle it was, it was like wedged behind the toilet. Believe me, I only found it because I dropped my phone while using the toilet. It wasn’t even visible, I had to like get on my hands and knees and crawl behind the toilet to grab my phone. So it puts the image in my head of some heroin addict or whatever sitting behind a toilet at a Motel 6 trying to get high, which honestly that just seems like an even worse situation than the one i’m in. Do I think it’s a coincidence that the day after I left the Motel 6 because of this, you’re requesting a drug test from me before I can see my kids? Huh Tom? How did you know about this incident Tom? The only people that know are the Motel 6 staff I notified, I don’t think any police showed up, so either you questioned them like i’m some criminal, or you’re following me. I know you’re reading this Tom, you’ve made several references to my posts on the baseball power rankings insinuating it’s me writing them, and yeah Tom you’re right it is me, can everybody in the comments give praise to Tom for being a regular Sherlock Holmes? Yeah everybody come on, Congratulations Tom! You’re the man! I’m gonna let you go home and fuck my sister, oh wait Tom I forgot, YOU ALREADY ARE. When you get home tonight tell Caitlin her brother says hi. Alright, I think I got that out of my system. Anyway, I think once more of our prospects are called up, probably around June or July, we may get hot and finish more closely to .500 than initially thought, and if this division stays like it is, and those prospects can deliver on their promise, it's entirely possible we could be in contention for the division. But a lot of this is gonna depend on if our Starting Rotation can get things back under control. Also we swept the Cubs so lol. 24-29
26 Nationals -1 Week after week, I expect this Nats team to take a nose dive. I expect them to crumble and slip into a double-digit losing streak but it just isn't happening. They lead the NL in batting average (.267), are third in OBP (.330) and have the lowest strikeout rate in MLB. They still have their own troubles, but this team is alive (4 games out of a WC spot) 23-31
27 Rockies +1 I don't have time to write a real blurb this week so you don't have to print this. Actually, you probably don't read these, I'm not sure anyone really reads them anyways besides the Reds guy's life breaking down, and this will probably get printed regardless. 24-31
28 White Sox -1 Liam is back. I can't overstate how great that is to hear. He is one of the best people in the game and it's nothing short of amazing for him to be pitching in May. If you missed it, it was recently revealed that he had stage 4 lymphoma, not an early stage. He started treatment just over 3 months ago! Nothing on the field matters for this team, but at least there's that silver lining. 22-34
29 Royals 0 As of the time that this blurb is being written (Monday at 11:39 AM), only two teams in the majors have a record below .400. Yup, the Royals are there with the A's. I suppose the positive is that the team figured out that they can get rid of useless players in Hunter Dozier, but they still have a lot more work to do. 17-38
30 Atléticos 0 The A's have given up 10+ runs in a game 7 more times than they've won. It's a mix of bad roster building (the bullpen), under-preforming vets (Ramon Laureano 74 wRC+, Tony Kemp 38 wRC+), injuries (Seth Brown and Paul Blackburn are just now returning), and no fans in the stands since 2019. It's soul crushing to watch and the national media's constant condecention toward this particular poor team and it is even more annoying this year. 11-45

2023.05.30 23:27 WWEWalkingDeadfan Something I like about Fear since the reboot.

Now to say I'm not a fan of the Fear since it got rebooted is an understatement, however there is one thing about it I've liked. That would be how almost every major antagonist, in one way or another, leads to the other.
I honestly like how things like this are done. It makes the whole thing feel like one overarching narrative. I know a lot of people might not agree with my sentiment, but to each their own.

2023.05.30 23:27 gingerade47 When did your background checks clear?

I am moving to a different state w/ my husband and children for this job. We have sold our current house and have one under contract in the new state. Problem is that I can’t close on the house until my background check is cleared (requirement for lending). I have talked to the onboarding team and my recruiter and they say they can’t expedite the process or priories one BI over another. They said the vendor they use has until my start date to get it done but that it shouldn’t take that long. But can’t get a response to what the status currently is.
My close date is June 20th and my start date is July 12th. How soon before your start date did you get your background check cleared?
sellers won’t push back the closing date because they have back up offers that are higher so are trying to shake us off. I’d really hate to lose this house and the $1250 put into appraisal and inspections for a background check that will clear no problem
