Blankets: Graphic Novel Short Review

2022.01.18 10:52 suns_edge Blankets: Graphic Novel Short Review

Recently flipped through the graphic novel, Blankets. It was a nice slice of life tale, good graphics, and straight forward plotline. I enjoyed the relationship between Craig and his brother, the confusion of childhood, the coming of age story, the first love story with Raina and exploration of his doubts in his faith.
Some quotes were really nice like:
“Shame is always easier to handle if you have someone to share it with.”
“When you are lost or looking for someone suspected lost, the CROWDS of people form a threatening undertow undermining your every effort.”
“And that's my comfort -- that someone else was there and experienced the same thing. How else could I know it was REAL and not merely a dream?”
“You know, sometimes you look at me with longing... even though I'm here with you.”
Overall, I was left with a lukewarm feeling. But props to it for being a quick read and nice food for thought, maybe should have read it when I was younger.

So if Takei didn’t turn down the MAPPA offer, we definitely would have gotten different voices
If that had happened do you guys have any picks for new JP voice actors for the characters? (Excluding Yoh because he’s one of the only ones that got his voice changed)

2022.01.18 10:52 homchange how do you get better at data analysis?

How do you improve conceptually understanding of figures and extract insights?
Just started a new job as a junior data analyst. I was doing data analysis. I made a mistake like many people do - focusing on plotting many charts without reading charts properly.
When boss asked me to interpret charts, I hardly articulated and formulated actionable insights.
I didn't know I should think in that way before the meeting where I just report what was going on for our products and platforms.
Guys, could you give some advice?
Often, I feel helpless, shooting in the dark...
Senior analyst at Reddit, how did guys overcome difficulties?

Does anyone have the recipes to the Fernson downtown dipping sauces for fries? I know they have changed their food service provider and do not have them anymore. Loved to go down there, have a few beers and some fun fries.

Hello, I come to you today as a humble Ape, looking for forgiveness. At GG’s lowest depths I lost faith and was banned from discord. I understand my actions were not warranted or needed for the community, but I’ve bought back into GG at the height of your current price, and I plea to be allowed back into the discord family. From one lonely ape to the pack, please let me back.
Sincerely yours, Me.

2022.01.18 10:52 roofcheck123 Scrum Questions - Estimating, Carry Over,

Hi everyone,
I lead a small team of 3 software developers and we're using Scrum methodology. I've gone through the CSPO training and the developers attended the CSM training. We use two week sprints, we use JIRA to track our epics, user stories, bugs, and sprint board. We estimate user stories and bugs in a # of work days. None of the software developers have stepped up to take a clearly defined Scrum Master role. I am the product owner and I typically lead our Scrum meetings. As you can see, I'm the one posting for help, I'm the agent of change.
I'm looking for advice on a few situations,
Carry Over
Almost every sprint my team does not complete all of the work on our Sprint board for our two week sprint. I find that concerning, because I can't reasonably estimate when we will finish work. How do we get closer to completing 80-100% of what's on our sprint board? Here's our process:

  1. At our Sprint Planning, we estimate the user stories and bugs for the sprint such as .5 work days or 2 work days. Sometime user stories have mock ups, prototypes, or user requirements. Sometimes they don't and that's an area I'm working on improving.
  2. We review how many work days each developer has that sprint (PTO, Holidays, etc.). For a two week sprint, it's usually 10 work days for each developer
  3. Once the user stories / bugs are estimated, we fill up each developers "To Do" list for that sprint.
  4. We do daily stand up's to talk about what we did yesterday, what we're doing today, and any roadblocks.
  5. At the end of the sprint, we do not do a Sprint Review or Sprint Retrospective. We tried, but the meetings fizzled out. When I led the Sprint Retrospectives, the team didn't engage much. Maybe, I need to restart that and try another approach.
What advice do you have?
As the product owner, I'm asking the developers to estimate our user stories and bugs. How can I make sure these estimates are as accurate as possible? I'm not a developer, so I can't reasonable assess if something is 1 day of work or 4 days of work. I wonder if one of the reasons we don't complete our sprint backlog is because we underestimating on work.
How can I help our team estimate better?
Releasing With Bugs
Often times, my team releases a feature and it has bugs. Buttons don't work as expected, page loads slowly, misspellings, etc. As product owner, I end up doing QA to ensure we release quality work. We don't have a dedicated QA person and I don't think we want that.
How do I get our team to take ownership over releasing features that are bug - free? We wrote our definition of "done" collaboratively and it included being thoroughly tested. In my mind, the developer can test their own work.
In my mind, the developer is responsible for delivering work that is "done." They shouldn't need me to QA their work for bugs. They shouldn't need a separate QA person. How do I hold them accountable for releasing quality work? Any advice here?
Thanks for any advice your have!

2022.01.18 10:51 TrippieHippie14 Raising Kanan should’ve been way more than what it was.

My honest opinion of Season 1…
Going back into the season and watching it episode by episode, it shouldn’t have taken so long for things to kick off, for a war to happen, character development, etc…
Things started to kick off in the last 3 episodes. Every episode after episode 1, I just knew it was going to be a war. But it wasn’t until the last 3. I was highly disappointed.
Kanan should’ve been a little more cutthroat, as well. We didn’t see him selling too much of any dope. The whole season was him just fucking up. (Maybe that was the plan?) Patina Miller (Raquel) stole the show. Her performance was outstanding, IMO. She carried the show along with Joey Badass. IMO, this was their season.
I just feel like it should’ve been way more action. There were so many scenes with Raquel and Symphony having sex that could’ve been replaced with other dramatic moments in the show that actually showed substance. There should’ve been more shootings, more dope being sold, more law being laid down by cops.
Jukebox played her role really good too, but it should’ve been more scenes for her too as far as drama.
I hope season 2 has more to offer us.

Well it looks like it doesnt work and it's going to need lots of boosters.

That's what conspiracy theorists said not 9 months ago.

So were they right?
