2023.03.21 07:58 bclark8923 How we did Road to Hana and Pipiwai Trail in one day!

Hey everyone! I just got back from Maui and have to say Road to Hana was amazing.
Before I went I had asked questions and saw lots of suggestions but not many reports back on doing both RTH and Pipiwai Trail in one day.
I wanted to share our experience and very happy we did what we did!
Few important things
  1. We’re a pretty active early 30s couple
  2. We booked the 7-10am time for the state park and black sand beach last minute as it was all that was left and glad we got this reservation!
  3. We did the full loop and took the backside, it was stunning!!
  4. We didn’t plan exactly what we’d do, but we got the Shaka Guide app and it was 100% worth it
How we did it:
We left Kihei around 6:10am, stopped at Safeway in Paia for water and coffee and went on our way!
We planned to go straight to the black sand beach without stopping, but when we hit Hanawi falls we decided to step out to stretch our legs.
From here we turned on the Shaka Guide app and hit a hidden Lava Tube, Makapipi Falls, and then on to the state park.
We stopped at Hana Farms for the banana bread for breakfast and it was AMAZING.
We then stopped in the black sand beach at 9am and hiked for 45 min and swam for 10 min. Beautiful!
From here we drove through Hana going down different roads and taking our time before heading to Hamoa beach at 11am.
We brought a floatie and swam here for almost 2 hours until 1pm, beautiful 80 and sunny day so glad we did this.
We then went back to Hana and got Poke Bobs for lunch, our favorite poke we tried this trip! (Among Tobi’s, Tamuras, and Star Noodle! Although all of them were still amazing)
It was at this point we were going to pick, take the road back to Paia and see the stops we missed, or on to Pipiwai trail.
We decided let’s go for the trail and made it there at 3pm. We hiked fairly quickly and we’re back at our car by 5pm and the trail was so worth it! The bamboo forest and waterfall were amazing.
Then comes our favorite part of the drive, taking the back road!
If you are at all confident in your driving it’s not a bad drive at all, just keep some space between the car in front of you so there’s always room to pass! And once the road widens back up let locals pass if you’re going slow and there’s a line behind you.
We came around the back side and caught the sunset along this route and it has to be one of the most beautiful drives I’ve taken anywhere in my travels.
On the way stop at Bully Burgers, even just to enjoy the view, and we were back in Paia by 7pm.
Overall this was a stunning highlight of our trip and can’t wait to go back!
Ask any questions and enjoy the drive!

2023.03.21 07:57 PayinTopDolla SW WA (Camas & Washougal) is the Best Place to fatFIRE

I've been reading a lot of posts lately about good places in the US to fatFIRE to, including recent and popular examples like Las Vegas, Austin, and Arizona... but I would like to put out there another very viable option that is currently not so mainstream (maybe also a good thing): Southwest Washington (SW WA).
The common goal for people in their search is finding a place that has the right mix of amenities, tax sheltering, cost of living, and scenery. I've spent much of my career traveling literally all over the US and seeing a vast swath of metropolitans. My conclusion after maintaining as much neutrality as possible and factoring in the aforementioned criteria is that Southwest Washington is the best choice. This region consists of a few cities and is part of the Portland, OR metro. There is Vancouver, WA but it doesn't stand out for fatFIRE folks as it's a flat, normal, and dense suburb. To the East is Camas & Washougal, where things get interesting, and I'll explain more below.
Here is why these two cities are worth considering.
  1. Again, they are part of the PDX metro and just across the river from the Columbia. This means you're 20-30 minutes away from Downtown Portland and Portland International, which happens to be a great airport that's usually not crowded and highly ranked. From here, you're a 3-hour drive to Seattle and a 1-hour flight to the Bay Area.
  2. Included with the obvious amenities of being in the metro of an actual city (i.e., not a pseudo city erected in a desert that is Las Vegas) is great food, from trendy food carts to more gourmet places. Food is competitive here and the bar is set quite high with lots of choices. Media and sensationalists like to exaggerate the homeless problem, which certainly exists, as it does in Austin and most other big metros, but it's not rampant.
  3. Cost of Living - albeit it is getting higher like everywhere else, it is comparatively lower, especially on the West Coast. $1M for a house can get you a LOT of house.
  4. No Income Tax AND No Sales Tax... and why I recommend living across the river in WA versus Portland, OR is because WA is one of the 9 states that don't have income tax. If you need to buy a big ticket item like a TV and whatnot, just drive over the river to Portland and buy it there with no sales tax. One of the very few, true metro areas that offer this combo.
  5. Weather. Yes, the PNW rains and has overcast days and this one will be subjective. Maybe you prefer living in the scorching hot, dry desert of Las Vegas or Phoenix where it averages 100*+ instead, or you prefer the hot, humidity of Austin. I personally prefer the rain and having all 4 seasons in a year. If you consider the effects of global warming, being in this area may not be a bad thing in the years to come. It also isn't pouring ALL the time as some people think. It will drizzle and the winters are definitely wet, but Summer months from the end of May into October are beautiful and largely sunny days. Just look at California and how much rain they got this Winter, for being a "year-round" sunshine state.
  6. Scenery... the nature is world-class. Trees, hills, mountains, rivers, lakes, and greenery are all around you. Drive East and you're at the coast and beach. Drive South East and you can go to Bend, OR, which is turning into a resort town for PDX these days. Skiiers/Snowboaders, Mt. Hood's Timberline lodge is open 10 months out of the year. The list goes on and on... but what is almost a SECRET to people is the Columbia River Gorge towards the East... a huge canyon that the river cuts through and hosts over 90 waterfalls. Just look at it: https://i.imgur.com/3QybyLD.jpeg
  7. Now, more specifically on Camas & Washougal. Camas is a smaller, hilly, and upscale city with one of the best school districts in the metro. Great if you want to live in a more luxury-type suburb (gates communities, golf courses, etc. available). Washougal is right next door but uniquely features acreage properties if you're interested in having more space and privacy - while still being in easy access to all of the above.
That's my take and summary of why these 2 cities in SW WA stand out or should stand out.

2023.03.21 07:56 Captainmanic @Bing AI "Write a story of how Ukraine liberates Crimea from Russia by Summer, 2023."

Here is a possible story:

Ukraine had been fighting a war against Russia and its proxies for nine years, ever since Moscow annexed Crimea and invaded the Donbas region in 2014. Despite international sanctions and diplomatic pressure, Russia showed no signs of backing down or respecting Ukraine's sovereignty. The conflict had claimed more than 14,000 lives and displaced millions of people.

But in the spring of 2023, Ukraine decided to launch a daring operation to liberate Crimea from Russian occupation. The operation was codenamed "Sich", after the historic fortresses of the Cossacks, who had defended Ukraine from foreign invaders for centuries. The plan involved a coordinated attack by land, sea and air, with the support of NATO allies and volunteers.

The operation began on May 18th, the anniversary of the deportation of Crimean Tatars by Stalin in 1944. Ukrainian forces crossed the narrow isthmus that connected Crimea to mainland Ukraine, breaking through the Russian defenses and advancing towards Simferopol, the capital of Crimea. At the same time, Ukrainian naval vessels and special forces landed on the southern coast of Crimea, near Yalta and Sevastopol, where Russia's Black Sea Fleet was based. Ukrainian air force jets bombed strategic targets such as military bases, radar stations and bridges.

The attack caught Russia by surprise. Although Moscow had deployed hundreds of thousands of troops along Ukraine's borders for months, it did not expect such a bold move by Kyiv. Putin ordered an immediate counterattack, but it was too late. The Ukrainian forces had already established a foothold in Crimea and were pushing forward.

The fighting was fierce and bloody. Both sides suffered heavy casualties and used all kinds of weapons, including missiles, drones and cyberattacks. But Ukraine had an advantage: it had the support of the local population. Many Crimeans welcomed the Ukrainian soldiers as liberators and joined them in their fight against Russia. They remembered how Russia had violated their rights, oppressed their culture and exploited their resources.

The turning point came on June 26th, when Ukrainian forces reached Simferopol and stormed the parliament building where Russia's puppet government was based. After a fierce battle that lasted several hours, they raised the blue-and-yellow flag of Ukraine over the building. The news spread like wildfire across Crimea and beyond.

Ukraine had achieved what many thought was impossible: it had freed Crimea from Russian occupation.

The operation was hailed as a historic victory for Ukraine and a major blow for Russia. President Zelensky declared June 26th as "Crimea Day" - a national holiday to celebrate the reunification of Ukraine's territory. He also announced that he would grant amnesty to all Crimeans who had collaborated with Russia during the occupation.

Russia did not accept its defeat easily. Putin vowed to retaliate and accused NATO of orchestrating an "aggression" against Russia's interests. He threatened to use nuclear weapons if Ukraine did not withdraw from Crimea immediately.

But his threats were met with defiance by Ukraine and its allies. NATO Secretary General Jens Stoltenberg said that NATO would stand by Ukraine's side in case of any further Russian aggression. He also called on Putin to respect international law and end his support for separatists in eastern Ukraine.

By July 2023, after intense negotiations mediated by Germany and France, Russia agreed to withdraw its troops from eastern Ukraine in exchange for lifting some sanctions imposed by Western countries over its annexation of Crimea in 2014.

The war was finally over.

Ukraine celebrated its victory with joy and pride. It had proven its resilience against a powerful enemy that wanted to destroy its sovereignty and identity.

Crimea rejoined Ukraine as an autonomous republic with special rights for its ethnic minorities such as Crimean Tatars.

Ukraine became closer to fulfilling its aspiration of joining NATO

2023.03.21 07:56 No_Cricket_2824 Your partner lacking your ideal physical characteristics is not "settling".

We all have our physical preferences whether it's a man taller than you , a bigger member , big breast or bottom etc but for most people it doesn't preclude a relationship to lack an ideal physical characteristic.
Most women wont dismiss you because you aren't 6 feet just like most men won't dismiss if you are a breast size smaller than their ideal . Young men guided by the Red Pill community especially have no clue of what is important to most women. Men who have trouble getting women are now worse off because of the red pill community which provides a confirmation bias in which they can blame women for anytime they fail as being shallow and money hungry.
Its not " settling " to be with a woman or man you love just because they lack an ideal physical characteristic. There's a million other reasons to love someone outside of physical characteristics. What is truly settling is marrying a 10 out of 10 girl in your eyes and you have absolutely nothing in common. She's just a trophy wife to show to your friends who provides good sex.
Let's take a more healthy approach and not speak so negatively. I don't know how many questions I get from this community such as
" if a man identical to your husband came along but was taller, bigger member and more money you'd divorce . " .....................
This is the type of negative and spiteful view of women I continue seeing that just wants to find a way to hate women. I find it sad and I hope young men will stop consuming red pill content especially because it's making them hateful and spiteful . Good day

2023.03.21 07:55 joannew99 Finally playing Cyberpunk..........

Cyberpunk - I really hate when games don't explain how to do key things.
I just really dislike when games try to do too much. Like...this game has hacking, stealth (which i'm terrible at, i dont know how anyone completes some of these missions full stealth), gunplay, melee combat, driving, inventory, cyberware upgrades, attribute upgrades, perk point upgrades, quickhack upgrades, braindance, item crafting, legendary items vs uncommon items vs rare items, gun upgrades (again, how do I do this? It's not explained!) etc etc. There's just SO much going on that it's overwhelming and the foundation of many of it is not really explained or fleshed out at all. It's like..Cyberpunk is so invested in introducing new things into the game/story, that it does not take time explain simple stuff like Legendary items, Armor, or even that you can dodge while shooting lol.
A few other things:
This game should have came with a paper manual .. because there is definitely some required reading necessary!
But overall, not a bad game. And I like the city/map because 1) it looks great and 2) it feels lively. I've had fun so far! But it's also been frustrating at times – which is not something I expect to feel when gaming. A challenge? Yes, love it. But frustration? No, thank you.

2023.03.21 07:54 DIY_at_the_Griffs DIY sweep & inspection

Hi all, looking for advice in for a UK home here. We have just had a second wood burning stove installed and I’m thinking about the cost of sweeping has now doubled. So I’m considering getting a sweep kit and Mai these myself.
One of my stoves is inset with a liner and the other is freestanding with twin wall flue.
Looks like it’s recommended to use an insured and approved sweep to get a certificate for insurance purposes. However, if I clean it correctly then I should never need to make an insurance claim right?
What are your thoughts on this?

2023.03.21 07:54 No_Expert_7522 Can't install Director's Cut from disc (PS5). Help needed

So, here's something weird. I purchased the physical version of GoT: Directors Cut. But, every time I install it, it seems that the version installed is the non-DC version. I also have Playstation Plus, and I tried to install that version so that I didn't have to always put the disc in if I wanted to play, and it *did* install. However, it's the PS4 version. But, it DOES indicate that it is the DC version.
I've tried deleting and reinstalling 3 times now, and every single time I install from my disc, I get the original version.
Now, I had never even played this game until 4 days ago. This game is the main reason that I actually bought my PS5 in the first place because friends were raving about it, and the trailers just looked incredible. So, I really don't fully have a grasp on the differences between the regular and the DC. I was told that the only difference is that the DC comes with the Iki Island expansion, but I never see an option to play that DLC. Only the Legends Mode. Is there more to the actual main game when you play the Director's Cut? Or, is does DC just equal Iki Island DLC? I guess I assumed since they called it the Director's Cut, then there should be an extended story added to the main game. If that's the case, I want to resolve this installation issue because I am already 22% into the game and I don't want to miss any more story (that is, if I am indeed missing it now by playing the original version) than I already have.

Does anyone have any idea what's going on with this? Am I worrying over nothing?
And, if anyone else has seen this issue before, then maybe you know how to resolve it?
I hope this post makes sense, and thank you in advance for any help you can share!

2023.03.21 07:53 Field-Formal Help a novice! Are these Planaria? (also hair algae)

Are these gross things Planaria? I'm only a casual hobbyist but I've never seen them before. I have two tanks the first (pictured) has a lot of them and the second has less but still some. One tank also has sudden hair algae) I **think** I know what my gameplan should be (Less food, 2 black out days/week, and Algae eaters?). I'm trying to save money and not buy NoPlanaria, but if I do, is it safe for the Betta and Corey? I appreciate all help. I'm not that experienced so please don't rip me a new one if I'm doing something wrong.
PS: What's up with my KH and GH?
Tank 1: 10 gallon heavily planted tank. 3ish months old. 80 degrees. submersed filter. One Betta, a snail, and 3 Corey Catfish. Betta eats pellets only. Corey are fed Carnivore sinkers daily (Lately I've been crushing them a little to make easier to eat. This might be my problem), and Algae sinkers once or twice a week. Also, just had a sudden bloom of hair algae on some wood. Default tank light used probably 8 hours a day (admittedly sometimes more. Again probably part of the problem)
Nitrite: 0 (or close to it)
Nitrate: 0 (or close to it)
PH: 6-6.5
KH: 40
GH: 120 (ish?)
Tank 2: 10 gallon heavily planted tank. 3ish months old. 80 degrees. hang-on filter. 3 young female Bettas, a snail, and 2 Corey Catfish (plan to move them to a 14 gallon soon as things settle). Bettas eat pellets only. Corey are fed Carnivore sinkers daily (Lately I've been crushing them a little to make easier to eat. This may be part of my problem), and Algae sinkers once or twice a week. No hair algae on this one so far. 10W tank light used probably 8 hours a day (admittedly sometimes more. Again probably part of the problem).
Nitrite: 0 (or close to it)
Nitrate: 0 (or close to it)
PH: 7
KH: 80
GH: 180 (ish?)

2023.03.21 07:53 Tariqqqqqqq The future of Project Zomboid (?)

Project Zomboid is a game like no other - not only is it a great game, but it's also being developed by a fantastic group of developers, the game's community is growing, and the game is still not even complete! All of that's old news though, as I'm sure you're all aware, and so I'd like to discuss some ideas regarding the future state of Zomboid; this will be my take on what I'd like to see improved, added, or changed in the game. I'm no game dev, just an enjoyer of Zomboid and so you might want to take some of the points that I make with a grain of salt.
** This will be a long post so I'm going to label each section or "discussion", hopefully that'll make it a little easier to read. **

Melee combat:

First of all, I want to quickly touch on the melee combat mechanics of the game. I think they're great - they're simple, but they're satisfying and they suit the game's pace perfectly. With that having been said, I think melee combat can be a little janky at times especially when turning/moving around and I hope that these (minor) issues are addressed in the near future.

Ranged combat (guns):

Having started with melee combat, I will now move onto what is perhaps one of the most polarizing topics of discussion: guns. -- While I understand that the developers don't want you going around killing zombies like you're the main character in some Triple-A zombie-slaying movie, I think that guns should be just a little more powerful. I mean - you could literally have your pistol right up a zombie's face and you'd still miss if your aiming level isn't high. Also, shotguns seem to be a class above all other guns, which makes sense if you really think about it (shotguns are the perfect zombie-mowing gun), but that just makes other guns not-so viable unless you're short on ammo. With that in mind, I think pistols should be more effective at close range (like when it's literally down the zombies throat), while I'd also like to see assault rifles jam less frequently (they seriously jam a lot...). In conclusion, guns are a difficult topic to discuss seeing as they have the potential to turn the game from a "This is how you died" sort of situation to a "This is how you killed a million zombies and liberated Northern America", though I think they could do with just a little buff.


Movement in Project Zomboid is great! I think the crouching/sneaking system as a whole is very neat, while jogging/sprinting work just fine for me. However, strafing ... strafing can be a little painful at times. I touched a little on this in the Melee combat section, but basically, strafing can be janky when you're trying to turn around/kill floored zombies/multi-hit zombies that seem close enough to each other but somehow aren't. The strafing stance can feel a little rigid, and I think a little more wiggle-room is needed. I'm not sure of how that would be applied, but perhaps more strafing stances (fully-engaged like the current default stance, half-engaged for quickly changing directions at a penalty to damage or swing speed) could be useful. Besides strafing, I really don't think that there is much that needs to be changed besides the addition of more animations for things like eating, sitting down, laying down, turning lights on/off, opening/closing doors, and entering/exiting vehicles.


While there is a ton of variety in the loot that you can find, vanilla items tend to get old rather fast. This applies to all things from weapons, to food items, and even vehicles (not technically considered as loot but the variety or lack there-of is what I'm trying to get at). I'm sure there will be a lot of additions once the game is complete, but for now, I'd like to see some more variety in vanilla weapons particularly as I've been using crowbars for ... well forever. Also, more unique items/easter eggs could add a lot of flavor to the world; we currently have the Spiffo plushies and statues and they're great, so I'd like to see more things like that.

Vehicles (driving):

Driving in Zomboid is hit or miss in my opinion. While it feels ... realistic (?), I think cars feel a little too rigid/sharp, I'm not sure of the best way to describe it but I think some of you will agree. I'd like to see changes made to the driving mechanics, allowing us to have better control of our vehicles so that we don't crash the poor things every time we head out for a looting run. Besides that though, I love the sound-bits used for vehicles and I think they're some of the best in the game.

Vehicles (mechanics):

Vehicle mechanics in Zomboid are more detailed than almost any other game that I can think of. That's a good thing, for car enthusiasts, although it can be a little intimidating for those of us who aren't very familiar with cars. Nevertheless, I think vehicle mechanics are a great part of the game at this stage.


Levelling up your character's skills is an essential part of every playthrough - though it's a real grind, isn't it? I usually set my skill XP gain multiplier at 2.5 to counteract the sheer grind that's required to level up your skills, and while I appreciate the realism, I still think that quicker XP gains could make playthroughs more enjoyable seeing as most of us don't even make it past the first month. I know that books exist for a reason but the sheer existence of said books is proof that XP gains are rather slow, and at higher levels, even after reading books levelling is still quite the grind. Asides from that though, I think that the current skill tree (or skill list) is fairly diverse and I like the selection of skills that are available to improve. I guess more survival skills could be added down the line (such as climbing), but I'm happy with how things currently stand.

Building (carpentry):

There's really not much to say here, because there isn't much to build. More furniture and storage containers need to be added, while fences/barricades can also use a little more diversity as well.

Building/crafting (metalworking):

Much like carpentry, I think metalworking deserves a lot more love. Both in regards to furniture, as well as weapon-smithing. Why can't we make swords yet...?

User interface:

A little off topic here - the absolute WORST UI I've seen on a video game would be Stellaris. Gosh that game's UI hurts my eyes, though I almost felt the same way the first time I played Zomboid. Now, after having played the game for a decent length of time, I'd say that the UI has grown on me. It's not perfect, especially the inventory system (particularly sorting), but I don't think it requires a complete overhaul - though I'd like to see a little more effort in the UI for ovens, as well as fridges and other special containers. Besides that, however, I think just a few tweaks to button/menu sizes and some general tidying up should be enough at this stage of the game.


And yeah, that's just about it for me. I've spent the past hour or so typing this and I've run out of ideas, but I'd really like to hear yours - I see myself playing this game for years to come and knowing what the community has in mind for the future is really interesting to me. To end this off, I just want to reiterate that the developers are doing a GREAT job building this game and I'm sure that they will continue to do so! Here's to a bright future, Project Zomboid :)

2023.03.21 07:53 tareekpetareek GQG Partners invested in Adani. A reputed investing firm betting on a company that's accused of fraud. Here's a fun read about the possible reasons.

Source - https://boringmoney.substack.com/p/adani-finds-an-investor (my newsletter -- do check it out and subscribe if you'd like to receive future posts about finance stories in India right in your inbox)
An investor’s main job is to disagree with everyone else. You buy a stock if you think the price is low, and sell it if you think it’s high. When you’re buying, you think the stock price is low and will go up, but you’re buying it from someone who thinks the opposite. Similarly, you sell a stock when you think the price is high, but the investor on the other side thinks otherwise. There’s quite a bit of disagreement!
Yes, I’m oversimplifying. There are lots of folks in the markets. Some might be gambling. Others might buy a stock even if they think it’s expensive, because they think there’ll be a greater fool who they can sell it to later at an ever higher price. That said, it’s useful to think of an investor as someone seeking to be contrarian. They want to disagree with other investors because that’s how they really make money.
GQG Partners is an American investment firm known to make contrarian investments in companies. Earlier this month, it invested ₹15,446 crore ($1.9 billion) in Adani Group companies. Definitely a contrarian bet after the Group was accused of fraud and their stocks fell by more than 50%. (In case you somehow missed the whole saga, I wrote about it here.)
One reaction to this is of skepticism. Adani Group has anyway used Mauritius-based funds to inflate its own stock prices (so the accusation goes), maybe it’s now using GQG? Well… GQG isn’t a strange Mauritius fund. It’s a company that manages $90 billion that everyone knows about and generally has a good reputation.
Okay, let’s chuck their reputation. Large banks have great reputations yet do shady deals all the time. If you’re an investment firm that manages funds with your clients’ money, and you’re in the mood to “help” a company that’s just been accused of fraud, you might do it with maybe one or two of the many funds that you manage. Why risk more?
GQG bought shares of 4 Adani companies, and it did so across more than 20 distinct funds. Some of those 20 funds include retirement funds for
  1. Government employees of two US states, New York and Texas
  2. Australian workers
  3. Saudi Arabian citizens
I mean… GQG isn’t going to be intentionally messing around with retirement funds across three continents, less so government ones. Adani is really just a contrarian investment.
Adani (finally) sells some stock
Back in late January, Hindenburg Research accused the Adani Group of fraud. At the time, the conglomerate was in the process of selling some stock to investors. There were broadly three reasons for this stock sale:
  1. Fund new projects
  2. Repay some company loans
  3. Reduce Adani’s (the individual’s) stake in Adani Enterprises, which is super high and close to the upper limit of 75%. This would also help in shutting up people (like me) who claimed Adani share prices were high only because he owned all the shares
Eventually, though, Adani Group cancelled the stock offering and returned whatever money it did raise. In a way, Adani finally did this month what he couldn’t in January. He sold some stock to investors!
There’s a difference. In January, it was Adani Enterprises selling stock. This time around, it was Adani the person that sold the stock. [1] The difference between Adani and his companies is often blurry, because he owns more than 60-70% of all his companies, but there is still a difference.
Because it was Adani the person that sold the stock and not Adani the company, the money fulfils different goals. He can’t really fund new projects [2] and he can't repay company loans. In fact, Adani's already putting some projects on hold.
What Adani can do with this money is repay his own loans! When Adani stock prices fell, banks that had lent money to Adani against his companies’ stock asked for some of the money back. So Adani decided to repay his loans in full. Here’s him two weeks ago repaying $2.65 billion that he borrowed to buy Ambuja Cements. I had earlier written about him repaying a similar loan of $1.1 billion.
Adani didn’t want to fund new projects, or repay the high debt that his companies have frequently been criticised for. But he clearly really needed money to repay his own loans. It was a happy coincidence that he succeeded in fulfilling goal (3) that I mentioned above—he reduced his own stake in his companies, a bit at least.
GQG likes the leniency
I wrote earlier that a company being accused of fraud, by itself, wasn’t reason enough for investors to think less of it. If you’re a company that’s accused of a number of frauds, and one of those frauds is being on the receiving end of government “leniency”, it could actually be good for your investors.
When Adani stocks started to fall, the problem wasn’t that Adani Group was accused of defrauding the government or people at large. The problem was that the Group was accused of fraud against its own investors by inflating its companies’ share prices.
For an investor whose job it is to be contrarian, the question then becomes—do the benefits of the first kind of fraud outweigh the pitfalls of the second kind of fraud? Rajiv Jain, the chairman of GQG Partners, spoke to ET Now on a Sunday morning after the $1.9 billion investment in Adani companies. Here’s what he said: [3]
Something not well appreciated is that the barriers to entry in infrastructure anywhere in the world are very high, particularly in India, execution extremely difficult.
You might remember that POSCO Iron and Steel tried to acquire land for seven, eight years, couldn't even acquire land, and then they left. So greenfield projects are very, very difficult. And that's what actually we quite like about this group is they have shown remarkable ability to execute on greenfield projects. And I feel that they don't get full credit for that in terms of ability to pull that off.
Rajiv Jain likes that Adani could build infrastructure projects in a country where other multinationals couldn’t even acquire land in eight years. Yeah, I think what he’s saying is that he likes the “leniency” that Adani’s been getting from the government. And he’s willing to pay a higher price for the company because the benefits outweigh the costs. [4]

[1] “Adani the person” could be Adani’s family members, the trusts that hold his stock, etc., not necessarily the man himself.
[2] Technically he can, it’s still his money. But he’d have to lend to his companies, in which case he would rather just have raised money via a stock offering directly.
[3] If you watch the interview you’ll see that the swooning journalist doesn’t ask Rajiv Jain the tough questions. The journalist asks him about what he thought of Hindenburg’s accusations, and Jain waives them off saying it’s stuff everyone has already known for a while. But what does he think about the specific accusation of Adani owning Mauritius-based funds to inflate his stock prices and defraud his investors? No idea, the question wasn’t asked.
[4] Another way to look at this is that the accusations against Adani are of defrauding on price, not on assets. The assets that Adani companies own are real and tangible, there is no argument about it. The accusation of defrauding investors is about overpricing the assets, something that GQG seems to think is fine after the massive fall in share prices.

What is Machine Embroidery?

Machine embroidery is a process of using a specialized machine to stitch designs onto fabrics. The embroidery machine follows a digitized pattern to create the design, and the needle and thread move in a synchronized manner to create the design. This technique can be used to add designs to a wide range of materials, including clothing, bags, and home decor items.

Types of Machine Embroidery Designs

There are many types of machine embroidery designs available to choose from. Here are some of the most popular:

1. Satin Stitch Designs

Satin stitch designs are created using a series of closely spaced stitches that form a solid surface. These designs are commonly used for lettering and filling shapes.

2. Fill Stitch Designs

Fill stitch designs are created by stitching a series of parallel lines or rows, which create a solid area of embroidery. These designs are ideal for filling large areas of a design, such as a background.

3. Applique Designs

Applique designs involve stitching a piece of fabric onto a larger fabric surface to create a design. This technique is commonly used to create designs with multiple colors and textures.

4. Embossed Designs

Embossed designs create a three-dimensional effect by raising the surface of the design. This technique is commonly used for creating designs with a tactile feel, such as on hats or bags.

5. 3D Foam Designs

3D foam designs involve adding a foam layer beneath the embroidery to create a raised, three-dimensional effect. This technique is commonly used for creating designs with a more dramatic effect.

Understanding Embroidery File Formats

Embroidery designs are stored as digital files in various formats, and it's essential to choose the right format for your machine. The most commonly used file formats are DST, PES, and EXP. DST is a commercial format, while PES is used by Brother embroidery machines, and EXP is used by Bernina embroidery machines.

Choosing the Right Fabric and Thread

When choosing fabrics for machine embroidery, it's essential to consider the type of design you're creating. Light fabrics such as cotton and linen are ideal for delicate designs, while heavier fabrics such as denim and canvas can handle more intricate designs. Thread selection is also crucial, as it can affect the final look of the design. Polyester thread is commonly used for machine embroidery due to its durability and colorfastness.

Creating Your Own Machine Embroidery

Creating your own machine embroidery designs can be a fun and rewarding experience. Here are some tips to get you started:

1. Sketch Your Design

Start by sketching out your design on paper. This will give you a clear idea of the design's size, shape, and overall appearance.

2. Choose Your Software

To create a digital version of your design, you'll need embroidery software. There are many software options available, ranging from simple free programs to more advanced paid options.

3. Digitize Your Design

Using your chosen software, digitize your design. This involves creating a digital file that your embroidery machine can read and stitch. Be sure to adjust the stitch density and type to suit your fabric and thread choices.

4. Test Stitch Your Design

Before stitching your design onto your final fabric, it's essential to test stitch it onto a scrap piece of fabric. This will allow you to adjust any issues with the design and make sure it looks as intended.

Tips for Creating Stunning Machine Embroidery Designs

To create stunning machine embroidery designs, here are some tips to keep in mind:

1. Use High-Quality Thread

Using high-quality thread will make your designs look better and last longer. Polyester thread is a popular choice for its durability and colorfastness.

2. Experiment with Different Fabrics

Experimenting with different fabrics can lead to unique and exciting designs. Try using different materials such as leather, felt, or even burlap to create texture and interest.

3. Pay Attention to Detail

Small details can make a big difference in the final look of your design. Pay attention to things like stitch density, thread tension, and color choices to ensure your design looks as intended.

Common Machine Embroidery Design Mistakes to Avoid

While creating machine embroidery designs can be fun, there are some common mistakes to avoid. Here are a few to keep in mind:

1. Using Low-Quality Thread

Using low-quality thread can cause your design to look cheap and quickly fade or break over time.

2. Not Testing Your Design

Failing to test your design before stitching it onto your final fabric can result in costly mistakes and wasted materials.

3. Choosing the Wrong Fabric

Choosing the wrong fabric can result in a design that looks sloppy or doesn't hold up over time. Be sure to choose the right fabric for your design and adjust your stitch settings accordingly.

Embroidery Software for Design Creation

There are many embroidery software options available, ranging from simple free programs to more advanced paid options. Some popular options include:

1. Embird

  1. Do I need to have a lot of experience with embroidery to create my own designs? No, you don't need to have a lot of experience with embroidery to create your own designs. With the right software and techniques, anyone can create their own designs.
  2. Can I create my own designs without embroidery software? While embroidery software makes the process of creating machine embroidery designs easier, it is possible to create designs without it. However, the process may be more time-consuming and challenging.
  3. What kind of thread should I use for machine embroidery designs? It's important to use high-quality thread for machine embroidery designs. Polyester thread is a popular choice for its durability and colorfastness.
  4. Can I use any fabric for machine embroidery designs? While you can use a range of fabrics for machine embroidery designs, it's important to choose the right fabric for your design and adjust your stitch settings accordingly. Some fabrics may not hold up well under the pressure of embroidery stitches.
  5. Is it cheaper to create my own machine embroidery designs or purchase pre-made designs? The cost of creating your own machine embroidery designs versus purchasing pre-made designs will depend on a variety of factors, including the cost of the software, materials, and your own time. Ultimately, it may be more cost-effective to purchase pre-made designs, especially if you're just starting out with machine embroidery.
