I'm paying for the subscription but this year's its pretty hard to keep up with it (work, school, and now AEW content too). I get about an hour lunch break at work which would help me not fall far behind but no Wi-Fi there and I dont want to burn through data.
Is there a way through an app or the mobile website to save it using my home internet to watch at work?

2021.09.27 05:49 chickn00dlesoup Beginner: Is it bad if I start by just using the treadmill or the stationary bike?

Please excuse the format. If there’s other sub more suitable for this question, I’d really appreciate the help! Also, any (literally any) advice is absolutely welcome.
I [19F, 5 ft, ~180 lbs] am a college student, and I happen to be overweight. I want to work on my resistance (lack thereof, accompanied by more noticeable shortness of breath), and eventually, make working out a steady habit in my routine.
I started in-person classes this semester, as well as the “independent adult” lifestyle – so as I’ve gained control of what I buy and what I eat, I’m trying to develop healthier habits (no alcohol, no drugs, more fruits and vegetables, etc). I have just recently discovered my college’s gym, but I just know how to use the treadmill and the stationary bike.
While I want to understand better how the rest of the the machines work, and pick up weight exercises, I want to know if the lack thereof (or like, just doing cardio for a period of time) is something that will have a negative impact on my health (other than the fact that I wouldn’t be taking full advantage of what the gym has to offer). I will try the rest later, but I really want to focus on what I already know first.
Also, while I’d try to add resistance when on the bike, I think I’ll take it slow with the treadmill. Is this something that would give a bad impression, could be criticised, or could be bad for my health?
Thanks in advance!

2021.09.27 05:49 SunShadesOnMyHead I need help and advice.

So I am a FTM and I have only come out to my mother. She seemed supportive then went right back to calling me her “daughter.” When I tried to confront her about it she refused to look at me and said “I have had a daughter for 18 years it’s going to take time for me to adjust”. Then I just gave up correcting her because she again went back to calling me her daughter. A few years back when I was 14-15 I was talking to my father about one of my out of the closet transgender friends and he said “People can wear what they want and say they are boy or girl” I was just realizing at this point I was transgender and I was going to ask him if he would experiment with pronouns with me. He then followed his previous statement with, “Having surgery to remove their genitalia is just mutilating their bodies. You were born as one sex and can’t change that.” I have tried to just be my birth gender but I feel so fake and can’t even look in a mirror without wanting to cry. Can anybody please help me? Please.

2021.09.27 05:49 SirNightwing2003 Why do some people try to live up to negative stereotypes?

This shit confuses me. I heard a black guy talking to his girlfriend saying shit like, "Girl, you better tell him ( the male Manger at her job) I'm a thug! I'll beat his ass!" I'm thinking after seeing the guy. 1. Dumbass you look like mother fucking "Steve Urkel" from the old show "Family Matters", you are not a thug. 2. You obviously don't know what the word thug really means.
The guy just sounded stupid. Being a real thug by it's definition is not a good thing and don't get me started on morons who think being a " Pimp" is cool. Real pimps are low life scrum.

2021.09.27 05:49 WhatAreMen Synchronous Emma: 27th September. Emma first sits in mournful thought of any continuance

I'm going to try to get these up a day or so in advance to give everyone time to catch up! What follows is an assignment of what to read, a description of how the date was arrived at, the narrative and historical context of the events in the selection, a few scholarly readings (and my own interpretations) of key points in the reading, discussion questions based on those readings, and a bibliography. Feel free to read all or none of what follows, and to give your opinions on the discussion questions or on literally anything else in the reading so far. Also, regarding spoilers--should we have some kind of a warning system in place?
Read: Vol. 1, ch. 1; pp. 1-7 ("Emma Woodhouse, handsome, clever, and rich" through to "Depend upon it, a man of six or seven-and-twenty can take care of himself"). Context Miss Taylor gets married to Mr. Weston to-day!
The choice of date here is somewhat arbitrary. Jo Modert places this occurrence in “late September” (p. 57), probably because Emma laments that "many a long October and November evening must be struggled through at Hartfield, before Christmas brought the next visit from Isabella and her husband" (Austen vol. 1, ch. 1; p. 2). Monday was statistically the most popular day on which to get married in England in 1813 (Schofield, p. 67), though the majority of the population would have been beneath Mr. and Mrs. Weston in rank and fortune, so those statistics may not be representative of them in particular.
Weddings in the early 19th century were much smaller affairs than they are in Western culture now; relatives weren't likely to travel far for them, it was uncommon to buy a new dress for the day (rather than simply wearing one's Sunday best), and even if one did, it was not be likely to be white (expensive and hard to clean), and one would certainly wear it again. The bride and bridegroom would marry sometime in the morning, between 8 A.M. and noon, before attending their wedding breakfast. The breakfast was presumably hosted at Hartfield, given the wording of "The wedding over and the bride-people gone, her father and herself were left to dine together" (Austen vol. 1, ch. 1; p. 1). Recognising this detail--never explicitly stated but tucked away in a subordinate clause--allows us to realise how stark Emma’s sense of impending isolation must be.
The afternoon or evening after the wedding, Emma and Mr. Woodhouse dine, after which Emma reflects on the loss of Miss Taylor as Mr. Weston naps. Later that night, Mr. Knightley visits, and he and Emma argue about Emma’s claim to have brought about the marriage.
Readings and interpretations Emma Woodhouse, Handsome, Clever, and Rich
Among all of Austen's novels, the opening sentence of Emma is likely behind only that of Pride and Prejudice in fame. Austen scholars’ close readings of this and the following sentences tend to emphasise how their seeming lightness and contentedness belie their actual foreboding (which foreboding is noticed by readers either on their first reading, or only on subsequent ones--no one can quite agree).
Thus Linda Bree:

This single, solid sentence immediately reassures the reader that we are on conventional fictional ground. The narrator gives us the full name of Emma’s Emma, her age, her social circumstances and something of her character. It is easy to read through the sentence without paying much further attention than this. […] Only when dwelling on the detail of the sentence with more attention than we might be inclined to pay at this stage, will a reader detect slight caveats: ‘seemed to unite’ rather than ‘united’, ‘very little’ rather than ‘nothing’ to distress or vex (pp. 96-7).
David Amigoni, who reads the opening passage for what it can tell us about the novel’s narrative technique, notes this effect as well: “The fact that Emma ‘seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence’ implies a distance between appearance and reality" (p. 22).1
Who is Speaking Here?
The question of to whom Emma “seemed” to unite these blessings also arises. Who is speaking in Emma, and whose point of view are they expressing?
For Amigoni, it is the “implied reader” to whom Emma “seems” to be blessed (said reader is assumed to value “good looks, cleverness, wealth and domestic comfort,” but is being encouraged by the narrator’s “playfulness and irony” to take a broader view); for Finch and Bowen, it is the “gossiping […] community” of Highbury, whose opinions the narrator is revealing without subscribing to (p. 6).
But not all scholars read these first lines as those of an impersonal narrator selectively inhabiting someone else’s point of view. Massimiliano Morini suggests that the narrator themself is unsure, or at least that the reader cannot trust in the narrator’s knowledge:
In the space of a few paragraphs, the narrator shifts from a “negative” to a “positive” mode: in the first sentence, he/she adopts an external point of view which forces him/her to make conjectures about the real state of affairs (Emma “seemed to unite some of the best blessings of existence”); whereas in the second, he/she falls back on a positive perspective which allows him/her to establish the “real evils indeed of Emma’s situation.” This kind of oscillation produces epistemological uncertainty, because readers cannot be sure whether the narrator knows or does not know about people’s morals and feelings, about past and future events (p. 420).
However one reads these lines, the uncertainty over who is speaking at any given time is one of the major textual strategies of Emma. The reader not always being able to tell for sure whether the narrator is presumed to be revealing objective truth, or is merely mediating the opinions and the wording of one or more characters, allows for the mystery surrounding the hijinks that follow.
A Worthy Employment for a Young Lady’s Mind!
The tone of this day, to my mind, is one of Emma continually attempting to be cheerful and continually being brought up short (as when she laughingly calls herself “a fanciful, troublesome creature,” only to inadvertently depress her father, who misunderstands; Austen, vol. 1, ch. 1; p. 5). For Marshall Brown--whose thesis is that, though some other critics have tended to read it as idyllic, contended, and optimistic, the central feature of Emma’s atmosphere is depression--“surface hilarity” often covers real doubt (p. 19). On this moment see also Jan Fergus:
Emma undermines Mr. Knightley’s implied criticism of her by saying playfully, “‘Especially when one of those two is such a fanciful, troublesome creature! […]” Mr. Woodhouse, the complete egoist, thinks Emma must mean that he is the fanciful, troublesome creature. She has to explain very quickly that she is the target of her own joke, that Mr. Knightley “‘loves to find fault with me you know—in a joke—it is all a joke’,”), although Emma knows of course that Mr. Knightley really does criticize her. […] Emma has made a joke against herself as a way of pre-empting and containing Mr. Knightley’s criticism (p. 76).
The first scholarly reading of this evening as a whole that comes to my mind is Michele Larrow’s. In an essay whose thesis is that Mr. Knightley must learn to feel sympathy for Emma as the novel progresses, she describes the evening thus:
[N]ow that [Mrs. Weston] is gone, we are told, Emma needs someone to “meet her in conversation, rational or playful.” Mr. Knightley soon enters the story to enliven Emma and her father’s evening and offer her conversation. […] Rather than offer emotional support, Mr. Knightley enumerates for Emma the good reasons for the marriage, which she already knows. When he says that Emma “‘cannot allow herself to feel so much pain as pleasure’,” Mr. Knightley wants her to control her emotions […] Mr. Knightley criticizes Emma’s purported matchmaking when he tells her that Mr. Weston and Miss Taylor “‘may be safely left to manage their own concerns.’” With no sense that he is trying to “manage” Emma’s concerns, Mr. Knightley explains the problems with her matchmaking: “‘You are more likely to have done harm to yourself, than good to them, by interference’.” Thus, in the first chapter we see several themes that will return: Mrs. Weston’s being a model of affection and amiability, Emma’s feelings of loss and loneliness without Mrs. Weston, and Mr. Knightley’s preference to judge and guide Emma rather than to offer her sympathy (n.p.).
Amigoni’s view of Emma and Mr. Knightley’s disagreement in this chapter, and the reader’s probable interpretation of it, is more ambivalent. He writes that, though “Emma asserts her correctness in emphatic terms, the implied reader, reading Emma ironically from the perspective established by the narrator,” may disagree (p. 25). When Mr. Knightley insists that Emma has merely made a lucky guess, his
speech does two things: first, it provides us with an alternative to Emma’s perspective; and, second, it creates an expectation of development, that Emma will move beyond her own perspective. Knightley, who shares the narrator’s attitude to authority, expresses the view that Emma will be completed when she comes to know the ‘worthy employment for a young lady’s mind.’ This sense of proper feminine worth is a recurrent topic of Mr Knightley’s speech about Emma (p. 26).
The question of whether and when Mr. Knightley shares the narrator’s viewpoint is a fraught one that will doubtless be returned to repeatedly in this project. For now, what interests me about this argument is that we’ve come in at the tail end of the events that have led up to it: we have no direct insight at all into what actions Emma actually undertook to “smooth[] many little matters,” or what “little encouragements” she gave (Austen vol. 1, ch. 1; p. 6). Scholars may argue about whether the text leads the abstraction of “the reader” to believe Emma’s assertion, and what this means for the structure and techniques of the novel, but their arguments in that regard are probably based more or less entirely on whether they themselves were inclined to believe Emma at this stage of the novel. The narrator’s irony may cause our suspicion--then again, the demonstrable results of Emma’s putative effort at matchmaking may inspire our confidence, at least at this juncture, in Emma’s future endeavours.
Discussion Questions
  1. For those who have read Emma before--does anything come through in the language of this opening section upon rereading that was not apparent on a first reading? For those who have only seen adaptations--does anything about the novel so far surprise you?
  2. What kind of atmosphere is conveyed to you by the opening of Emma? Does it seem cozy and comforting to you, or depressed and constricted? As Marshall Brown asks, “Would you like to live in Emma’s surroundings, in a village called Highbury” (p. 5)? And can our personal associations with a novel alter what we think of its tone?
  3. Who is speaking in the opening of Emma, and whose point of view are they expressing?
  4. What do we think of Emma and Mr. Knightley’s first argument? Who do we think is likely to be “right”? Is the metric of “correctness” a useful one to use?
  1. For other close readings of the opening sentence, see Bradbury (for whom it suggests “a disparity between the moral and the social scale,” p. 340); Brownstein (who notes, among other things, its contrasting “worldly” and “religious” registers; p. 218; and Dry (who calls its syntax “formal” and “non-idiosyncratic,” approximating a “rigorously impersonal” style).

At the end of the first episode Gaal says that the journey to Terminus will take 800-something days. That's a little under two and a half years, but at the beginning of episode 2 she tells Rayche that it's four and a half more years. Is that inconsistent writing or deliberate?
Second, at the end of the lava tube simulation you see a wide shot of a couple people peeling something from behind their ears. Could this be what what Rayche pulled from behind Hari's ear?
