Praline, Chocolate Marshmallow

chocolate marshmallow: favorite brands of candy?

“Oh, uh.” Yuri’s mouth presses in the center, even though the edges are tugging upward. “At least it says brands.” One would just be too hard.

“I don’t get to have any of them often, but–” Yuri pauses thoughtfully, looking up. “Pocky is definitely one, but the specialized Kit Kat flavors that come out all the time are amazing, too. The sakura and green tea ones, especially. Oh, and the Royal Milk Tea ones.” 

“After that, hmm. Hi-Chew is always a great one for on the go, and one of the few I could find in America, still, with some searching.” 

“For America, it was more their baked goods. Cupcakes and muffins are very different there. And in Russia? Their sour cherry candies and juice are so much better than they sound. The same with their fruit and cream chocolates.” 

Praline: a popular book you haven’t read yet?

“I haven’t really had much time to read, or even see what was out there to be read, during this season,” Yuri says through cheeks turning pink and even faintly red high on the tips on his cheekbones. “It’s not that I don’t like reading. I read a lot during working on my degree. I’ve just … um .. you know … I’ve been busy with this competition year.” 

There’s a look down toward his knees or feet, as a hand comes up to tug at his collar and rub his neck, as he shrugs delicately. “And, well, Victor likes to go places and try new foods more than stay in, while we’re in new countries, so that’s detracted from the time I could have spent inside. Or reading a lot more, too, this year.”

My Favorite Word Note Taking Method

When I tried to outline my notes in MS Word last semester, the method didn’t really work for me. It was too much information laid out in one space and my brain had trouble processing it. I needed things to be explained simpler and broken up more so that I could focus on individual pieces instead of trying to connect all the info at once. Flashcards are designed to be simple and to help you pick up on information quickly, one term at a time. Using this logic, turning all your notes into flashcards will simplify the process and help you learn information faster. So here’s the instruction breakdown.

1. Set up your flashcard categories. Open a blank document in Word (Google Docs or any other word processing software would also work) and type your flashcard categories (I like to align the font in the center), pressing enter after each one. Some categories I use regularly are: Terms/Definitions, Facts/Other Info, People, Places, Dates, and Formulas

2. Make your tables. In the blank line between your categories, go to the Insert tab and click table, setting it at 2 columns by 8 rows so that you end up with something like this for each category:

3. Enter your information. For terms/definition, I put terms on the left and definitions on the right. Facts and info can be difficult to define, but try to break it into two parts. Names of people go on the left, and what they did on the right. Dates are on the left and what occurred is on the right. Names of equations/formulas go on the left and the formulas themselves go on the right.


4.  Study! You can transfer your flashcards to an app/website like Quizlet or just study them from the doc. I do a mixture of both.


This is a method I haven’t seen elsewhere, and really love it, so I hope it helps you guys as well. If you have any questions, my ask box is always open!

Hello! I'm a new follower and i love the legacy ur doing! The characters r so cute! I have a question tho, when Amy was 1st pregnant...wasn't she a teen? How did u get her pregnant when being a teen? Is there a mod for it? Could u possibly link me to the mod and make a little walk-through of how to install it? Tysm!! Luv u!◕‿ ◕

Aww, hi! It’s nice to see that you’ve read through a lil bit haha. And yes, Amy was a teenager when she was pregnant. I use the MC Command Center mod to allow teenage pregnancies! All you really gotta do is download that and place the script files into your mods folder. When you go in game, it’s a little confusing but you can change a lottttt of different things with that mod. I usually press on a computer or something and then I press the lil command center option and then a big thing comes up of everything you can do. I don’t really remember which option teenage pregnancy is under though, my bad! I hope this kinda helped! Love uuuu

Poll: Courts are right in blocking Trump’s travel ban

Most Americans say federal courts are acting properly in blocking President Donald Trump’s travel ban, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.Two versions of the travel ban targeting Muslim-majority countries have been put on hold by federal courts. Trump says the ban is necessary to keep would-be terrorists from traveling to the United States. Opponents, including some state officials, argue that it is intended to keep Muslims out.Fifty-seven percent of Americans say the courts have acted correctly by blocking the travel ban from taking effect, while 39 percent say the judges are wrongly interfering.

From the beginning President Trump said, even before the election, that he intended to ban Muslims, not that he intended to ban terrorists but Muslims.

“Sixty-two percent of responders did think trying to protect the United States from security threats was a major reason, while 26 percent thought it was a minor reason and 11 percent thought it was not a reason at all.On the other hand, 50 percent of people who responded to the AP-NORC poll said they think a desire to prevent Muslims from entering the country was a major reason for the ban, while 20 percent said it was a minor reason. Twenty-eight percent thought it was not a reason.Those viewpoints also largely broke down along partisan lines.

I think that they want to stop the travel ban based on people claiming a certain religion. I don’t think it’s about religion, it’s about safety.

Poll: Courts Are Right in Blocking Trump's Travel Ban
Most Americans say federal courts are acting properly in blocking President Donald Trump’s travel ban, according to a new poll by The Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research.

Two versions of the travel ban targeting Muslim-majority countries have been put on hold by federal courts. Trump says the ban is necessary to keep would-be terrorists from traveling to the United States. Opponents, including some state officials, argue that it is intended to keep Muslims out.

Fifty-seven percent of Americans say the courts have acted correctly by blocking the travel ban from taking effect, while 39 percent say the judges are wrongly interfering. The poll shows a sharp partisan divide: 82 percent of Democrats say the courts acted rightly, while 73 percent of Republicans say they’re wrongly interfering. Among independents, 56 percent agree with the courts.

“From the beginning President Trump said, even before the election, that he intended to ban Muslims, not that he intended to ban terrorists but Muslims,” said Nick Hardy, 54, an independent voter who said he leans Democratic. “That’s just not right.”

Trump initially signed an executive order in late January that banned people from Iran, Iraq, Syria, Yemen, Sudan, Somalia and Libya from traveling to the United States. That included legal permanent residents. The order also blocked all refugees from being resettled in the United States. The order caused chaos and confusion at airports around the world. Some travelers arriving in the United States were detained before being sent home, and people overseas were blocked from boarding U.S.-bound flights.

The original order was blocked in federal court, and an appeals court later upheld that ruling. A second order that dropped Iraq from the list of affected countries also has been blocked. It also exempted legal U.S. residents from the ban.

The Trump administration has asked the Supreme Court to immediately reinstate the updated ban, saying the U.S. will be safer if it is in place.

The San Francisco-based 9th U.S. Circuit Court of Appeals this month refused to reinstate the executive order, and a three-judge panel said the administration failed to show that blocking citizens from the six nations was needed to protect the U.S. The court also found that the president’s order violated an immigration law prohibiting discrimination based on nationality.

As a candidate, Trump pledged to block Muslims from traveling to the United States until American authorities could get a better handle on vetting visitors and immigrants. Those campaign remarks have been used as evidence of his intention by opponents of the order.

The 4th U.S. Circuit in Richmond, Virginia, also has called Trump’s national security concerns an after-the-fact justification for an order “steeped in animus and directed at a single religious group.”

Sixty-two percent of responders did think trying to protect the United States from security threats was a major reason, while 26 percent thought it was a minor reason and 11 percent thought it was not a reason at all.

On the other hand, 50 percent of people who responded to the AP-NORC poll said they think a desire to prevent Muslims from entering the country was a major reason for the ban, while 20 percent said it was a minor reason. Twenty-eight percent thought it was not a reason.

Those viewpoints also largely broke down along partisan lines. Sixty-four percent of Democrats, 46 percent of independents and 34 percent of Republicans say preventing Muslims from entering the country was a major reason for the travel ban. Eighty-seven percent of Republicans, 70 percent of independents and 41 percent of Democrats say protecting the country from security threats was a major reason.

Rebecca Miller, a 50-year-old pet care business owner from Tampa, Florida, said she doesn’t agree with a lot of what Trump says but supports the travel ban and thinks the courts have wrongly interfered with it. Miller said she votes “promises, not party” and sees the travel ban as a safety issue.

“I think that they want to stop the travel ban based on people claiming a certain religion. I don’t think it’s about religion, it’s about safety,” Miller said. “I’m very interested to see the ban put into effect and for a couple of years kind of monitor it and see how it goes.”

The AP-NORC poll of 1,068 adults was conducted June 8-11 using a sample drawn from NORC’s probability-based AmeriSpeak panel, which is designed to be representative of the U.S. population. The margin of sampling error for all respondents is plus or minus 4.1 percentage points.

Respondents were first selected randomly using address-based sampling methods and later interviewed online or by phone.

I reach out into the darkness. Silence holds a grip on my breath, and finally lets go as I exhale quiet air from my nostrils. Shapes are intermittently forming as my eyes adjust to my surroundings and I carefully step forward, still reaching for a wall, or a hand rail or something steady, something that will support my weight incase I misstep or trip, you know, something sturdy. My fingertips touch a cool smooth surface, I press down with the center of my palm, feel upwards and downward, and then put my other hand on what I deduce to be a wall.
My eyes have adjusted to vague shapes in the room, but nothing seems familiar. A small bead of sweat makes its way down my neck and between my breast. Another falls down half the length of my spine, and ultimately soaks into my shirt. My ears become warmer and warmer with fear as I rack my brain. “what was the last thing, the last thing I saw, the last thing, the last thing, god damn it, where am I?”

Now it’s time for the mask to get covered. I went with an elastic/stretch like material that I held up to my face and checked to see if I can see through the fibers and still remain dark under the hood. You will go through several styles of cloth until you find the right material for this. Plus it’s easy to breathe through too. I spray glued the mask and placed over from center outward.

Poll finds 68% of Americans believe Trump tried to interfere in the Russia investigation

A majority of Americans believe President Donald Trump has attempted to interfere in the Russia probe, a new poll by the Associated Press-NORC Center for Public Affairs Research shows. The poll, which was released on Thursday (15 June), also revealed that only one in five Americans support Trump’s decision to sack James Comey from the post of FBI director.

According to the poll, 68% of Americans are at least moderately concerned about the probability that Trump or his campaign had inappropriate connections to Russia. About half of Americans said they are very concerned and only 3 in 10 said they are not that concerned.

As expected, the issue fell along partisan lines, with 62% of Republicans saying they are not very concerned or not at all concerned about Russian ties. According to the AP, of the six in 10 Americans who believe Trump tried to obstruct the investigation, a majority are Democrats and independents.

Just over half of respondents said they disapproved of Trump’s decision to oust Comey, but that number jumps to 79% among Democrats. Only 22% of Americans support the decision to fire Comey, the poll found.

Sandra Younger, a 50-year-old from San Diego, told the AP that Comey’s firing reinforced her concerns that “something fishy” was going on between Trump and Russia.

“If I had nothing to hide and someone wanted to investigate, I would say, ‘Go ahead, do your thing, I don’t care, because you won’t find anything,’” the Democrat said. Younger said that Trump “seems to be buddy-buddy with these epic creeps”.

William Shepherd, a 40-year-old from Anderson, Indiana, disagreed. Shepherd said it was the president’s prerogative to pick his FBI director. He added that he was not troubled by claims that Trump attempted to get Comey to drop the investigation because they emerged after Comey’s firing.

“These headlines don’t really concern me, although they are attention-grabbers,” the Republican said.

The poll also discovered that Americans have mixed feelings about the Justice Department investigation being led by special counsel Robert Mueller. Only 26% are very or extremely confident the probe can be fair and impartial. While 36% are moderately confident and an equal share are not very confident or are not at all confident.

About 29% of Americans said they have a great deal of confidence in the people leading the FBI. Another 52% said they have a moderate amount of confidence and 18% said they have hardly any confidence. Democrats (38%) are more likely than Republicans (24%) to have a great deal of confidence in the FBI, the AP reported.
