2021.11.28 21:26 lauralove89 Phone service carriers...help!
Hello! My hubby and I are planning to get off of each of our parents' phone plans and need a little advice on carriers. I currently have Google Fi, but whenever we go up north or really travel anywhere (other than Saginaw where we live), I have HORRIBLE service. He has Cricket and gets throttled on data at a certain point, but his parents don't pay for unlimited, so Cricket isn't totally out of the running. Anyway, we'd love suggestions. We are skeptical about AT&T proper and Verizon proper because we are concerned about them upping charges randomly, etc.

2021.11.28 21:26 ThisIsTheWay2001 Omicron: Why I'm Hedging Through S&P 500 Puts
Finally, I'm also simply short S&P 500. However, all these positions do not completely insure me against a sell-off. I'm just not that confident I have the direction of the market or the direction of volatility right and it is possible for evidence to emerge the variant is quite benign
I'm a bit worried about COVID causing more Winter upheaval than has been widely anticipated. The new COVID variant causes uncertainty although it could still turnout anywhere from a blessing to a nightmare. In my view, the market has been quite bullish and underhedged running into these fast-materializing difficulties. Arts in een huisbezoek aan een hogere mens Pekic/E+ via Getty Images
If you're reading this you have probably heard of the new COVID variant called Omicron. In this article, I'm summarizing my working assumptions (for speculative non-medical purposes).
The "Omicron variant" is very likely to be highly contagious. Maybe more so than the Delta variant that's been very successfully spreading. Vaccines likely are not as effective at stopping infections or limiting spread with this variant. So far we have very little information on whether the vaccines still mitigate severe outcomes to a high degree.
We don't know either how well the antibody and antiviral treatments developed so far will hold up to this new test. It seems unlikely effectiveness doesn't drop to a degree.
If it doesn't spread efficiently and basically doesn't take over from Delta that's the best-case outcome. In that case, it basically won't affect the world economy much. Here's a tracker that is supposed to track confirmed cases of this variant: Newsnodes - B.1.1.529 tracker.
Note that cases likely get detected at a very rapid rate (compared to earlier variants) as some type of PCR tests that are widely used can pick it up.
If it does spread efficiently then it is almost surely going to cause previously unexpected economic damage. It seems unlikely to me it is a complete and utter economic disaster comparably to the original COVID wave. The world is much more ready now and a lot of research has already been done.
At the same time, I'm surprised by how Delta is still capable of hitting Europe very hard despite generally decent to high vaccination rates. Germany is currently even debating compulsory vaccination. The Netherlands just upped restrictions as it approaches code Black for hospitals (when patients that need it will be denied ICU care). Note that in The Netherlands above the age of 12 the vaccination rate is 82.4% Like elsewhere the elderly get vaccinated at a higher rate. In Romania - where rates of vaccination are relatively low - bodies are piling up outside hospital morgues. Notably, Europe's struggles are unrelated to this new variant even as the new variant is detectable by regular PCR tests.
The most hopeful news I've seen related to the Omicron variant is a suggestion (from real-world observation) that it could be less aggressive compared to for example the Delta strain:
Dr Angelique Coetzee - who is also board chairperson of the SA Medical Association (SAMA) and in a private practice in Pretoria - said, although the situation might change, the symptoms had not been serious so far.
"This is not only my own account. I consulted with other doctors in Atteridgeville, Midrand and so on, and they're seeing exactly what I am seeing. The symptoms are mild, and that's the most important message," she said.
Adding that things "might change", Coetzee said for now there seemed to be no serious symptoms being presented by patients.
The variant could even turn out good news if the virus is highly transmissible but doesn't cause severe disease to the same degree or at a similar rate.
However, I'm only hoping for now because South Africa has a very young population (27 years of age on average). In addition, it is a new variant that's surging and severe cases may be lagging more benign cases.
One thing that's somewhat worrying is the alarming government responses. Many countries are immediately limiting or stopping flights from South Africa or even several African countries. These measures are relatively cheap to put in place(from an economic standpoint). Outside of Africa, few countries have a large part of GDP tied to trade with the continent. However, Israel is even barring foreigners from entry from anywhere.
We will undoubtedly learn more about the severity of the new variant and how hard it is to combat COVID even with expedient and massive vaccine rollouts. Currently, there's an uncommon combination of a COVID-variant scare, lockdown headlines from Europe(that are basically not related to the variant) while we're just coming out of a period where market participants have been quite bullish.
November 12 the WSJ wrote (and included the above graph)
Bullish call-options volumes earlier this month hit the highest level since January, when activity touched a record, Cboe Global Markets data show. These contracts give traders the right, but not the obligation, to buy shares of companies at specific prices, by a stated date.
It could be the case (and I think that's the case) people aren't very well hedged. The GameStop (GME) saga, dealing severe blows to short-sellers, has made that activity is more difficult to navigate. The option activity on the index suggests call buying outpaces put buying. This leads me to believe near-term the risks are to the downside until uncertainty abates. I'm continuing to position myself more carefully than I've been for a while. I wrote that I favored treading more carefully on the 22nd. I currently have some short-dated put options on the S&P 500 (SPY) (SPX). They certainly don't insulate me against a sell-off but mitigate some worst-case scenarios. Depending on developments the market, developments in news regarding the COVID-variant, and the European response to the latest wave I'll up or decrease my protection.
Puts have increased in price recently. Here is an optionstrat graph showing the recent price history of a long 460 put (expiring December 6) and short a 435 put of the same expiration:
This is in part due to the S&P dropping on Friday but also due to volatility which has increased as well.
I still like the position above. Max loss is $544 with a max upside to nearly ~$2k. Becomes profitable with SPY below $454. Another position I have on that's quite tricky is a December 3rd $455 SPY put which I sold a December 17th $455 SPY put against. But I have this on in a ratio of 2:1. So I'm long two puts for each put I sold with that position. The idea behind it being a sell-off will likely materialize sooner than later. If it doesn't materialize volatility will likely also decrease and the puts I sold may rather quickly devalue to help me mitigate some of my insurance cost.
On a sell-off I'll probably still suffer quite a bit even though my portfolio is heavily tilted towards special situations, to begin with (that are less market sensitive by design). I even consciously overweight investments that I expect to benefit from market volatility but should be positive carry over the long term (an unusual combination).
Finally, I'm also simply short S&P 500. However, all these positions do not completely insure me against a sell-off. I'm just not that confident I have the direction of the market or the direction of volatility right and it is possible for evidence to emerge the variant is quite benign.

2021.11.28 21:26 Icy_Table_3571 I want to pursue a phd and study quantum gravity but maybe i need a reality check
Both of my parents were immigrants and growing up, while they encouraged me to do well in school, they were more focused on turning me into a good religious muslim kid. My parents were both physically and mentally abusive and it took me a long time to overcome the trauma that they put me through as a child. I'm not sure that i've completely overcome it, even today. Out of the community of afghan kids I grew up with, 3-5 out of 50 were able to graduate high school. I had trouble making friends in high school due to a mixture of my social awkwardness, autism, and the difficulty I had communicating. When i turned 18 both of my parents practically abandoned me and left me to take care of my siblings. My mom left for work and my dad left for awhile too. I tried to attend community college at the time, but I didn't have any study skills because I never developed them in high school. I ended up taking more classes I could handle and flunked out of several classes. I've probably got around 5 Fs on my transcript. When my mom came back she ended up going to prison and afterwards I started doing drugs, very heavily at first, but I slowly eased up over the course of 6-7 years. I went through a lot of self discovery of this time period. Worked at many different places. Met a lot of people. Some I learned from and others I learned to stay away from. When my mom got out I started going to school again. Its been 3 years now and I haven't made anything below an A. I've managed to get accepted into a decent university, not ivy league or anything. The pandemic was very rough for me and I had to select CNC for quite a few classes. I might end up making a few Bs this semester. I'm consistently making above average grades in my classes. Currently in my junior year. I'm very passionate about physics and love math, and I do think i'm capable of completing my bachelors as a double major in math and physics, but I have a very spotty looking transcript. I've been looking around for research opportunities and knowing that i'll have to hand in my transcript gives me a lot of anxiety since i've got 5 Fs on my transcript from 9-10 years ago. I get even more anxiety when I think about graduate school. My ultimate goal is to work as a university professor and i'd like to study quantum gravity for my phd. I'm not opposed to trying out a different specialization. Space science seems pretty interesting too. Am I doing the right thing here? Should I change my major to something more marketable? Should I pick a different specialization? Is getting into grad school even possible for me? I need some help.

2021.11.28 21:26 Bon_A_Parte Servercrashing while in Mission on Genesis 2
My friend and I wanted to do the Survive the Ark Mission on Gen 2 on Gamma difficulty as we need to do that to be able to beat the boss. We tried on Friday and everything went well until the last wave. Everything stopped, I couldn't see him moving, he couldn't see me moving and a few seconds later we were kicked from the server. I took us a few tries to get back onto the server and tried again. Again, same result. On the last wave the whole server crashes, as we noticed later, and everybody online on this server gets to respawn without their inventory and having no way to retrieve it.
I looked a bit through the forums and reddit and barely could find anything, only posts that were about 6 months old. Now we do both play on Xbox on a server cluster hosted at Nitrado but none of us is the Admin. He plays on the Xbox One X and I play on the Series X if that has anything to do with that.
Two big issues are bothing me here especially. For one, we cannot finish this mission which is extremely annoying especially since it is quite fun. And we can, if we want to, literally grief the whole server and let everybody loose their inventory whenever we please. Of course only people who are online but still. Does anybody know about this issue and if so, how can we prevent it from happening?

2021.11.28 21:26 Minute-Hand-2779 Dental neglect? A bitter outlet
I'm in my feels this evening.
I'm having treatment for jaw surgery correction, and in the meantime I'm having to wear traintracks at the age of 28. Via the NHS. I've been in them for 3 years and my teeth have got progressively worse. I can't close my mouth. It's very noticeable.
I'm just struggling to understand why this wasn't picked up as a child? I've always been self conscious, my friends noticed my hand going over the mouth when I speak. Its caused self esteem issues as you can imagine. Over the last 3 years my life has come to a halt. I don't enjoy going out, dating etc
During my childhood, Financially it wouldn't be a problem? We had the nhs and I'm pretty sure I would have been a candidate for braces. And even if the dentist denied this, as a parent you're supposed to be my biggest advocate, do something???
I love my mum, she's not a very vocal woman and lacks confidence and education. So there's a part of me that tries to understand. I feel bitter some days.
I don't even know....

2021.11.28 21:26 Best-Nefariousness82 What Happened?
Me and this girl “A” have been taking for a while but never actually met in person until 2 days ago. (It is to point out she expressed she liked me at some point and i felt the same way but idk if she still had feelings for me, she has also seen me in pictures and videos with both intimate photos and regular ones.) Im a bit socially awkward but i did enjoy talking with her and i tried my best to be normal so i think the day went ok long story short we ended up having sex in my car. (Another thing is to point out is that we had talked about having sex the other day with her initiating, she is also more experienced than me.)We did stopped a couple minutes and i told her we didnt have to do anything because she said she was unsure if she wanted this. Things weren’t bad in my opinion after that and both left to work a few minutes later. We were texting as usual but she left me on seen a few hours later, she does have a history of doing that at least 3 times to me though. She hasn’t responded since and idk if i did anything wrong or if she was just disappointed with my appearance or other factors. I would just like someone’s opinion about the subject thank you.

2021.11.28 21:26 Ok_Inspector_2032 Should I confront him?
The guy I was talking to really seemed to like me then went ghost mode then apologized and said he was not in a good place right now. He started talking to me again and then became distant again and is acting completely standoffish. Do I confront him and say hey what’s going on? If he’s not interested anymore he could atleast tell me instead of keeping apologizing then going ghost. Idk if he lost interest or is going through something and doesn’t know how to explain. I’ve tried being patient and understanding but it’s not fair to me. I just want honesty.
