2021.09.17 18:21 Hellkyte Am I going to get anything out of The Goal?
I recently started working in a fairly intense manufacturing environment. Very fascinating, bread and butter IE stuff.
A number of folks here have been pitching me The Goal, and I fully intend to read it, but it seems like more of a qualitative description/story of optimization?
I've done quite a bit of academics on true mathematical optimization, and queueing theory etc. So stuff like LPs and Factory Physics etc. Even the completely useless stuff like solving a Wagner Whittin optimization by hand (why God why).
Anyways, long story short...is The Goal going to be a worthwhile read for me? I kind of get the impression that its for non practitioners? I'll likely read it regardless just to check the box, but wanted to check on value proposition.

2021.09.17 18:21 skilliard7 New Junior Dev With Impossible Deadline Made Worse By Red Tape And Politics, What do?
I was hired 2 months ago as a junior developer to replace a senior dev that moved to a new project. This project was also moved to a new department(mine) which has a lot of red tape.
On being hired, many people told me the organization "moves slowly" and to be patient. It took me 1 month to get access to the code to actually start learning the systems.
From there, I've pretty much been on my own, except for the previous dev that provides advice. I'm basically functioning as a program manager, as I'm responsible for supporting multiple applications and scheduling things, delegating work to the other junior dev, organizing their training, etc.
2 weeks ago I'm asked to do a very complex project, told that its important/critical, but they imply that have 2-3 months to do it. I talk to the department head that this needs to be a priority for me, he says before I can start work, I need to write up a detailed project plan and he needs to approve it.
This process takes 2 weeks to get approved. I then get back to the requestor with the project plan, and they are PISSED because the project went nowhere in 2 weeks. They then give me a surprise deadline of 2 weeks from now, telling me it's absolutely critical. They then say that if I have any concern about completing it on time, I need to secure more resources/support.
From the sounds of it, if this project is not delivered on time, the company will potentially lose most of its funding.
I panic from the deadline and email my supervisor and the department head that had to approve the plan, asking if I can modify the plan to fit the shorter timeline.
Instead of allowing me to removing red tape from the plan that is almost certain to result in it being late, I get asked to stop development, and create a detailed timeline by end of day addressing what resource will do what, how many hours they will take to do it, etc.
I tell the department head that the only person that knows this tool(previous dev) will be unavailable after today, and that creating this timeline will set me substantially behind, as I was hoping to work with him today on the project.
I'm still told to wait on development to focus on the timeline.
I'm kind of panicking. I'm a junior dev that's basically expected to function as a Program manager, but without any authority to do things the way I want.
What's frustrating is I'm stuck in the middle of politics. The department that requested the project failed to provide a clear deadline until it was 2 weeks away, and has the audacity to claim it's critical and must be done, and my department continues to delay the project with red tape.
This project is almost certainly doomed to fail, and I know I'm going to get shit for it. I'm told "this is the reality, if you need to work 80-100 hours, make it work".
Are these realistic expectations for a junior developer?

2021.09.17 18:21 Professional-Bee-696 What’s everyone’s boundaries in relationships
I want to know what everyone is okay with and what you are definitely not okay with in regards to: • Porn/ Masturbation in general • Flirting • Physical contact (others) • Sexual attraction (to others) • Checking out other people • Messaging opposite sex • Celebrity crushes
TL;DR: What’s the extent that you’d allow, and the line where it would definitely not be ok/disrespectful?

2021.09.17 18:21 alfvenwaves Trying to secure an Internship in UK (interested in Actuarial)
This is my second attempt at a resume tailored for an Actuary internship with a physics background. I'm planning to include the company specific details in the cover letter (unless it is preferable to include them in the resume instead). Anyway I'd appreciate any sort of advice and pointers as I'm not very good with resumes at all. I believe prior exam passes with IFoA are not compulsory in the UK recruitment system so I've not undertaken any (may differ in America I presume?).

2021.09.17 18:21 cheesequesadilla123 Concerning period clumps??
Each time I have my period, towards the end of the heaviest day, I pass out a rectangular clump that is like one inch long and finger width. I got really concerned and washed off the blood once, and it was gray and slightly pink. This has been going on for over a year, but I've just always assumed it was a regular shedding of uterine lining, until I talked to one of my friends about it and she gave me a "what the fuck" look. Now, I've been panic-googling "gray period clots" and it's telling me about miscarriage but I am definitely not pregnant.
Please help me, I don't know what to do!!

Imagine the chance to get your hands on one of a kind NFTs and earn a passive income for doing so.
Sounds like a dream right?
Well now your dream can become reality with Calypso!
Calypso is the second token in the Supermoon Lunar System, following Supermoon's huge ATH of £21 million.
Having achieved huge success in their first project, the dev team are looking to take things one step further.
They’re building an exclusive NFT marketplace with one of a kind NFTs, designed entirely around the user.
Using this market, investors can buy NFTs with Calypso.
Here’s what Calypso has to offer.
The Calypso team has big ambitions for the marketplace. They aim to become the largest NFT exchange on the Binance Smart Chain. To achieve this, they plan to offer a marketplace with low fees for buyers and sellers.Calypso has a lot to offer.
In the marketplace you’ll be able to buy unique NFTs not sold anywhere else. Every month, Princess Calypso will choose 3 NFT holders to win lucrative BnB rewards.
As well as rewards, you’ll also earn BnB dividends for holding Calypso. All you need to do is hold them in your wallet.
Calypso has already built a community of more than 6000 people. In this community you’ll be able to talk to like-minded investors and be the first to hear about Calypso updates.
The white list pre-sale is already live and over 20k sign ups. With so much support it’s only a matter of time until this project takes off.
