can’t weightlifters already know what weight they can lift?
Why is it a surprise to them amor see a weight set in front of them if they should be training to lift much more heavy prior to competition?

A hypothesis that the Federal Reserve can set interest rates based on the movements of the planet Mars. Here I have data going back to 1896 that shows how the Dow Jones performed when Mars was within 30 degrees of the lunar node. (- from appendix of Ares Le Mandat 4th ed)
This is data going back to 1896 that shows how the Dow Jones performed during times when Mars was within 30 degrees of the lunar node. The data contains the daily percentage changes of the Dow Jones since 1896. This information was extrapolated from sources believed to be reliable regarding stock market data. Percentage-wise, the Dow Jones rose 857% since 1896. When Mars was within 30 degrees of the lunar node since 1896, the Dow rose 136%. When Mars was not within 30 degrees of the lunar node, the Dow rose 721%. Mars retrograde phases during the time Mars was within 30 degrees of the lunar node was not counted as Mars being within 30 degrees of the lunar node. I'm hypothesizing that the federal reserve can set interest rates based on the movements of the planet Mars.year by year comparison (going back to 1897) between the annual Dow Jones returns vs annual Dow Jones returns that leave out the days that the planet Mars was within 30 degrees of the lunar node

i've been contracting my gigs for the past 12 years. so i'm kind of semiretired at 60. took the last few years mostly off after a car accident, went through my nest egg, got back to hustling this year. january-feb - 5k contract in nebraska. picked up a full time gig washing dishes at a korean restaurant just to keep busy at the same time. march, nothing. april-june worked for wages at amazon while my gigs were on hold due to covid. made $6k so i could invest it in tesla, but mostly missed that boat. july $6k contract in phoenix. currently on the east coast caretaking for mom. thinking about appying for a low level management gig at amazon for the upcoming peak season. meanwhile i have a couple tenants and some passive income. it's an oil lease so making almost nothing right now. i usually do plasma when not at a gig. i had some plans to write a book or article for kindle, but writer's block. i have one lawsuit going right now, that i'm somewhat mismanaging.
i once knew a man, harry browne, who wrote a book, how i found freedom in an unfree world, and it had a chapter about how to restructure things as contracts instead of having or being employees.

I had two bad experiences from calling a helpline and never did it again. The first one advised me to take up ballroom dancing and the second told me about her own problems while I provided a listening ear.

Would an academic career in vet med be right for me given the circumstances?
• I am a young woman with a veterinary medical degree from Myanmar. However, given the political situation in Burma and given my own role in it, I cannot document my degree. In fact, Burma won't allow me to document anything. I am not originally from Burma though. • My high school was in London, Ontario and I can document my high school for sure. I lived in the US most of my life until I met a dashing guy from Burma. I moved with him to London first and then to Burma after high school and eventually joined the vet school in Burma. My dashing hero was killed by Burma which is when I became an activist until I was banned from that country. • I am familiar with advanced vet surgery and have significant experience at a public zoo in Burma. I have operated on everything from lions, one giraffe, two tigers, elephants, ostriches, cows, bears, many dogs, wolves, etc. • Later I branched out into vet oncology and also have two oncology papers published in the top medical journals.
I moved to Canada last year and then this year moved to the US. Ideally, I'd like a career in academic vet med at a research university, but I realize this is impossible immediately, given that I cannot document any of my credentials from Burma.
If an academic career in vet med is impossible, what would you advice me? I need a way to pay my bills as I am running low on my funds.~ Thanks ~

I think you should talk to institutions you’re interested in. They may have options. From your experience it sounds like they’d be idiots not to find a way to work with you.

Imagine if you are having a great day at work, you get a promotion and your boss tells you you can go home early. You walk in the door and find your tokens being funged by another man.
