Under-5

anonymous asked:

Hello, I was wondering if you use a face highlight on your sims or is it editing? I love your sims btw. Thanks!

Gday :D Cheers for your message.

I do edit my pictures to have the highlighted look, though about a week and a half ago I started playing with my own and its starting to look decent… *whispers* I know nothing about makeup…

I’ve got one file set up under blush with about 5 different intensities, brighter being for the darker skin tones and less intense for the lighter skin tones.  Once I’m happy with it, I’ll upload some cas pictures showing the different levels of intensities and if you dig, I can deffo upload it no worries.

Cheers again for the message x

The new Young American Tracking Poll (YATP) is a first-of-its-kind quarterly survey and report that focuses on the opinions and behaviors of Americans between the ages 13 and 25 on topics in politics, policy, and civic engagement.

From its annual surveying of young Americans conducted since 2013, DoSomething.org and TMI Strategy launched the YATP in order to elevate the voices of young people in discussions of national policies and priorities. The poll brings attention to the distinct ways young millennials and Gen Z participate in their civic communities, which often contrast from beliefs and actions found in the general adult population in America.

Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing.

Specifically, the YATP provides an alternative to the standard approaches taken by traditional polling towards young people. Most often, young people are defined as 18–29 and so thinly sampled that additional segmentation within the group is impossible. This approach mutes the nuances of youth experience and opinions. The circumstances of someone in her late teens are very different than someone in her late twenties. And even with more narrow age-bracketing, there are major differences between urban and rural youth, male and female, and so on.

And for the voices of those under 18? Nothing. Most national polls omit 13- to 18-year-olds entirely from sampling, thereby silencing millions of young people who disproportionately rely on and are impacted by policy decisions.

Summary of Key Findings

The YATP finds that young Americans overwhelmingly disapprove of Donald Trump and his policies. For all areas where a direct comparison is possible, youth disapproval of Trump exceeds that of the general population. Specifically, American youth disproportionately disagree with Trump’s actions regarding immigration and border security.

In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.

This strong disapproval of Trump corresponds with a perceptible increase in civic participation from young Americans. In the months since the election, young people significantly increased their participation in organized protests, their use of technology to take and promote positions on social issues, and their use of social networks to organize others to take action.

Self-identified young “liberals” — one third of all young people — are driving the increase in civic participation almost entirely. This group has been two to three times more likely to take action than self-identified “moderate” or “conservative” peers since the November election.

Additionally, across a broad set of issues and policy areas, America’s young people are increasingly taking sides. On nearly every issue/policy asked about in the YATP, the percent of young people with no opinion decreased following the election.

The biggest gains in agreement went almost exclusively towards traditionally liberal positions. On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.

On topics ranging from climate change, to immigration reform, to the legalization of marijuana, a new consensus is forming among young Americans.

On several issues and policy areas, young liberals diverge from young moderates and young conservatives. The Women’s March in Washington, D.C. and identification with feminism are resoundingly unpopular with young moderates and young conservatives but are popular with young liberals. On issues of religion and security, young moderates and young conservatives are noticeably more skeptical of refugees and concerned by terrorism than are their young liberal peers.

In this report, we’ll take a deep dive into:

The airport lawyers who fought Trump’s Muslim ban are facing a Justice Dept. crackdown

  • At the height of the chaos surrounding President Donald Trump’s initial travel ban, Jorge Baron sprinted through Seattle-Tacoma International Airport to stop a taxiing plane. There were two immigrants aboard who were being ferried back home. 
  • Baron and his colleague, both lawyers, had a restraining order from a judge that kept the two men in the country. They were able to stop the plane before it took off. 
  • Meanwhile, at airports across the country, protesters gathered as hundreds of lawyers were settling in to take shifts, keeping constant watch over international arrivals and protecting the rights of more than 700 detainees nationwide.
  • Now, those lawyers who fought to protect travelers from detention and deportation are under fire. Read more. (5/19/17, 6:33 PM)

PLL Analysis: The “Liars Lament” Board Game

Wow, I haven’t made a post like this since my Rosewood Timeline, but here goes my attempt at analyzing the Liars Lament Board Game that was introduced in episode 7x11: 

la-ment:

noun - a passionate expression of grief or sorrow.

verb - mourn (a person’s loss or death).


#1) The House of Hastings - Here, we see that the “START” section of the game in the upper left hand corner is located at none other than The Hastings’ home. With closer inspection we can see that all 5 Liars are standing right in front of the building where this entire story began on That fateful Night back in the summer of 2009; The Barn:

Blink, and you might miss one of the most important buildings from this entire story peaking out from the Hastings’ backyard, and it sure seems that this is where the Game is meant to begin.

You may also catch a glimpse of the mailbox (bottom right hand corner of GIF) which reads “DiLaurentis”, and we all know at this point that the DiLaurentis house is located on the other side of the Hastings’ property. It is only fitting that the board game would begin in this very location, where it all began.

It is also easy to notice that the Liars are all dressed in Season 1 attire, which must be paying homage to the notion that in the final 10 episodes, everything is going to come “full circle”, aka “back to the beginning”. (And can we just mention real quick that Alison seems to be the only Liar standing on a square):

Hmmm… interesting. Regardless if this is a clue or not, it was definitely meant to be shown that all of the Liars are dressed the same exact way they used to dress when the A Game began all those years ago. 


#2) Radley - All roads lead back to Radley, right? It’s very interesting that the representation of Radley portrayed on the board game represents a literal Hell on Earth. Look at all of those trapped & lost souls!

We already know this is probably going to be an important part of the Game & I am really excited to see where it takes us. 


#3) The Church - The place of so many Rosewood funerals (Alison, Wilden, CeCe, etc.), the place where we last saw Ian alive, the first time we were introduced to The Black Widow, and the very location of Charlotte’s murder; the Rosewood Chapel has been a staple of Pretty Little Liars since the very beginning. 

This is also the “HOME” section, where the Liars get see their tasks displayed:

And it may be even more important than we thought… with the introduction of:


#4) The Secret Passage Way - Connects Radley to the church. Is this a clue towards Charlotte’s killer? And to throw it all the way back to Season 1, is this how Mona/Ian were able to escape the church so quickly after Alison threw him off of the bell tower? It would explain a lot in regards to how easy it’s been to sneak in & out of both Radley & the church, and now we have our answer.

There’s been a secret passageway the whole dang time! And I’m also inclined to believe that there is a passageway system under the entire town!


#5) The Lost Woods Resort - Now this is a majorly important part of the story. I wonder if there is some type of passageway underneath here as well, since Uber A was able to kidnap Hanna at the end of 6B.


#6) Mystery Location - Which I am willing to bet is the location of the Dollhouse. We already know that Charlotte’s dollhouse was located off of the same exact road as the Lost Woods Resort. We also see a very short clip in the 7B Promo showing Ali’s player piece (in the yellow shirt) at this very location. 

And we all know that the yellow shirt was worn many times by many people, especially in the dollhouse (Ali, CeCe, Bethany, Mona & Sara). So seeing Ali’s game piece in this spot makes me think it may possibly be the dollhouse. (Even though I don’t understand why it wouldn’t just blatantly say that it was the dollhouse if it was actually meant to represent it. So I guess we’ll just stay tuned on this one…)


#7) Rosewood High - Where we spent the majority of our 7 years. Now with Ali, Emily & Paige all working there, I think we will be seeing a whole lot more of it to come.

^ Still taken from the 7B Promo


#8) The Hospital - Which automatically just makes me think of Wren.

This is the location of the very first “Dare” selected by Spencer in 7x11. We already know how many times we’ve had to visit Rosewood Hospital, and there have been many connections to this location in the past. Plan on seeing more!


#9) The Police Station/Jail - Wilden, Toby, Marco, Officer Barry. Shall I go on? The amount of corruption we have seen pass through Rosewood PD is something we are all very familiar with as well. I wonder what kind of fun challenges the Liars will have to face at this location. 


#10) The Cemetery - So many bodies have been buried here.


#11) The Brew - Ezra Fitz’s loft, the first place the Liars met CeCe, and the place of hundreds of secret discussions. Is this an important part of the Game, or is it only there for show?


I wonder where this Game is taking us; on the ride of our lives I hope. 

So there’s my quick analysis.

Let me know any input you may have, or any locations I might have missed :)

Dear customers

Here’s a list of perfectly logical reasons the computer says we have one in stock, but you aren’t going to walk out of the store with it:

1) This is rare, but sometimes corporate says they sent us something and then we never received it.
2) Someone else might have bought it. I think how often the system updated inventory changed, but last I knew it only updated once every 24 hours. So somebody else might have it, and stock doesn’t magically refill the second it’s purchased. From personal experience, I think it takes over a week for corporate to ship refills unless it’s an extremely popular item.
3) If something is stolen, we have to go in manually and take it out of the system. We need to actually know an item was stolen and we need the bar code for the item. If someone steals something and leaves the tag on, we can’t take it out of the system. If the tag gets thrown away, we can’t take it out of the system. If we have no idea it was stolen, we can’t take it out of the system.
4) If an item is missing a tag, and the cashier doesn’t get the matching bar code, inventory will be off. For example, if you take the same shirt in a medium and a large to the register and the large is missing a tag so the cashier scans the medium twice, the computer thinks we sold two mediums and a large is still in stock even though someone just walked out with a large. Then corporate sends us two mediums and we still don’t have a large.
5) If another customer picked the item up then took it to a different department and left it or even just shoved it on a different rack in apparel, there’s no way for me to know where it is. I might work here, but I don’t have a natural GPS locator that lets me hone in on the location of a single item.
6) We might have it, and it might be in the back, but “the back” isn’t a perfectly organized replica of the front of the store. It’s most likely in a box that’s stacked underneath 5-20 more boxes and behind a palette of 40 other boxes, and if it didn’t take hours to look through the boxes whoever worked freight would’ve finished and put it out on the floor, so I actually can’t just walk back there, pick it up, and bring it out to you in under 5 minutes.

So if y'all could chill when I can’t find The One the computer says we have in stock, that’d be great.
