Stay safe, citizens

Stay safe, citizens

Look guys, we should all be serious about our cyber security, and I don't want to see anyone on this sub purged.

So, if you don't trust the inquisitionware, you can just dump your imperial credit numbers here, and I'll file the appropriate paperwork to make sure you're safe :)

Emperor protects!

This is an obvious scam. The Inquisition will never ask for your personal information; they already know everything about you.

Kigyók?

Kígyóznak

Újrabosszúskodás

Milyen izgalom Sötétség és csend az éjszaka folyamán Milyen izgalom Keresek és én megolvadok benned Milyen félelem a szívemben De annyira legmagasabb!

Adom az életemet, nem a becsületért, hanem neked (Kígyóevő) Az én időmben senki más nem lesz Bűncselekmény, én vagyok az, ahogy repüllek hozzád (Kígyóevő) Még egy álomban vagyok, Kígyóevő

Egy nap átmegy az esőben És egy nap egy fák béka után Megpróbáltatás, a tárgyalás túlélése A nap új fényt látunk

Adom az életemet, nem a becsületért, hanem neked (Kígyóevő) Az én időmben senki más nem lesz Bűncselekmény, én vagyok az, ahogy repüllek hozzád (Kígyóevő) Még egy álomban vagyok, Kígyóevő Még egy álomban vagyok, Kígyóevő (Kígyóevő...)

I recently got engaged to an ex-mormon, and I admire every one of you

I recently got engaged to an ex-mormon, and I admire every one of you

Last summer, I went on my first date with an ex-Mormon girl. A few weeks ago I asked her to marry me, and she said yes. In the 9 months between, I got to know one of the most courageous, kind, and beautiful humans that I have ever known. She has shared many stories of her trials and tribulations with the church, with the faith she was raised with and ended up leaving, and the relationships that were impacted by it all. So much of who she is today was shaped by her decision to stand for truth when sitting in silence or in ignorance was the easier path. And over the last several months, I have silently followed this forum to better understand where she comes from and how it has impacted her life. What I didn't expect was this sense of admiration and pride that has grown in me - not just for her, but for every one of you who has made the hardest choice. That when it mattered, you did the hard thing. So in case nobody has told you today, I'm proud of you. You did the hardest thing. And if you can do that, you can do anything.

Thank you. I love you. I needed to hear that tonight. Also..congrats!

You’re welcome. I think there’s something really extraordinary about this community and the shared experience that you all have. And I hope that when you need to find encouragement, you don’t have to look any further than the mirror. Because you got this far. And there are undoubtedly lots of people out in the world who will benefit from and be inspired by your story and your journey. So whatever it is, you got this.

Aww! Congrats! Such a great effort to understand her whole story, what a positive and caring person you must be. Sounds like you are off to a great start together. Best of luck!

Congrats!! It is so great that you took the time to understand her 💜 leaving is rough, and being able to talk about it with others who have experienced the same thoughts and feelings is so important. I have felt nothing but support here. Many, many years of happiness to you both!

UPDATE #2: The Cleaner should definitely give up her day job and become a full time puzzler solver. 4x4 = done 5x5 = on it's way to being complete! Amazing!

Probably had to get back to cleaning haha!

Nice, wonder why she stopped on the 5x5 through. The centers are all solved?

Because they were able to solve the 4x4 that means they are at least somewhat into cubing or they are extremely clever.

Maybe tonight leave a sticker that's says "How quickly can you solve it?"

Then do something that might make them want to write the time on the sticker. Would be awesome to hear how quickly they solve it.

I don't think so, it's not like their job or anything.

Are you going to leave the 5x5 out like that tonight again?

Edit: /s for the first sentence.

The next big fast food chain will come from South America, say experts

The next big food franchise will come out of Latin America, experts have claimed, with a number of chains eyeing up global dominance in the next few years.

Peruvian sanguches, completos and plátano mixto have been tipped as some of the foods that are likely to disrupt the fast food scene across the world.

Hispanic takes on hot dogs and doughnuts have also been cited as potential world-beaters.

Western franchises have dominated the fast food sector across the world up to now, with McDonald’s, Burger King and Subway among the biggest companies.

Krispy Kreme was launched this century and now has over 400 sites across the US, with the doughnuts also widely supplied in garages and convenience stores around the world.

But recent research published in the International Business Review suggests the global franchise picture is changing.

The research focused on the huge expansion of Brazilian franchises as well as others in Latin America.

And according to Venezuelan entrepreneur Leonardo González Dellán, the fast food scene is ripe for expansion.

He said: “The bottom line is that franchises that originate in emerging markets are doing better in other emerging markets than ones that originate in more economically developed countries (MEDCs).

“This is because these businesses do not see high levels of corruption or inefficiencies in doing business as unacceptable obstacles to opening up.

“Indeed, the evidence suggests that Brazilian franchise chains, in food and other sectors, do not see corruption as necessarily inhibiting their ability to do business in emerging markets and the least developed countries in Latin America.

“In short, they are better able to deal with problems around contracts, complex or contradictory regulations and political instability.

“More generally, emerging market multinationals (MNEs) are more prevalent in less developed countries compared with traditional MNEs – they turn their own experience into a competitive advantage.

“With these business experiences behind the teams who have made a success in the Latin America look set to take the world by surprise.”

There are a number of key chains that are growing and look set to rapidly expand across Latin America and ultimately the world.

They represent the first sustained challenge to come out of the emerging economies to dominant US franchises.

Some of these chains are not yet in a franchise model but their competitive advantage and the pressing need for a reinvention of the Latin American food sector is set to propel them forward.

See below the five chains to watch:

Five to watch

Baleadas Express

Honduras – served on flour tortillas, quick, fresh and very well regarded locally and in 100 restaurants across the country. They also serve hot dogs, plátano mixto, and enchiladas and are ripe for expansion.

Churromania

This Venezuelan company opened in 1997 in Puerto La Cruz and has a foothold in the US in Florida and Texas. It will be the next big thing in doughnuts.

The Californian Burrito company

This company was founded in Buenos Aires in 2006 and has spread its operations across the region with openings in Argentina, Colombia, Bolivia, Ecuador, and Uruguay joining its four other stores in Brazil.

Pasquale Hnos

Founded by the most famous Peruvian chef Gastón Acurio, this joint sells primarily Peruvian sanguches, chicha morada and Peruvian desserts.

Doggis

Quick-service hot dogs that are as big as McDonald’s in Peru and other Latin American countries, known as “completos” – topped with a guacamole-like paste made with avocado and mayonnaise. Set for world domination.
