Delta Helps Hundreds of Students Fly to DC for Gun Protest submitted by aGameCalledCountries to news

Ah, so offering discounted fares to NRA members would be in violation of neutrality, but donating round-trip charter fights to people who oppose them is perfectly neutral. TIL

Toronto chef butchers, eats deer leg in front of animal rights protesters outside his restaurant submitted by Nicodares to funny

Nicodares 0 points 25 points (+25|-0) ago


Funny in a little bit of a removed way. The owner/chef is actually someone who is against factory farms, inhumane slaughter practices etc. He goes out of way to source ethically butchered/harvest/foraged items. He had originally got the activists pissed off by posting a sign that said "Venison is the New Kale"

How can I stay a traditional wife with my husband out to sea? submitted by Vvswiftvv17 to TraditionalWives

Nicodares 0 points 13 points (+13|-0) ago

Hi, Three months is hard, but you can do it.

As background: My wife and I have been married for roughly 9 years, we were both in school and had to be separated for about 8 months, where I would stay with her parents and go to school while she would stay by herself and go to school. We had a three year old and she went with me. We just had another similar incident where I have been with her parents for 2 months with our child because she has to finish her PHD. I know it is not the same, but there are similar challenges. The most important thing is to stay in contact as much as feasibly possible. Skype can be a godsend in this regard.

I have seen the posts saying get in better shape, plan some surprise for him, etc. but ultimately, if he is not on a sub the most important factor is that you can still stay in contact through some means. Call as often as possible, he can still read bed time stories to the kids over the phone, still be involved in your lives throughout his time away. Stay positive for the kids, tell them the truth, daddy isn't here right now because he loves you, he has to do things to make sure that you can have a good life, he is doing the best that he can and sometimes it isn't necessarily what we would want. With regard to the marital things, plan something, not necessarily a surprise, but maybe find a baby sitter for the day after he comes back so you can have an evening to yourselves, get in some quality time just the two of you. Let him know in advance so he has something to look forward to.

There isn't really a hell of a lot that you have to do other than gut it out. I know that it can be hard, and being alone with two kids can be a trial, but family is a good resource for a little bit of respite if you can swing it. If not, a friend or colleague might be able to watch the kids for a few hours, enough to let you relax a bit and unwind with friends.

You can do this if you set your mind to it, after all there isn't much choice otherwise. The most important thing is to think of the kids, and how you want them to understand that sometimes daddy has work away, but its because he loves you all so much that he is willing to go through it to provide for you. Your toddler has to understand, daddy will be back, he loves her more than anything, but he also wants the best for her, and she should be a good girl and do her best to make him proud while he is away.

There is really not much more to say. I wish you the best of luck and hope that your relationship can become stronger for the trials you face. There is an expression: I asked god for strength so he gave me trials to make me stronger, remember this and you will do well.

*Edited for paragraph breaks, hopefully. Holy wall of text batman

Racists at the bank, what to do? submitted by TheJackofAss to Vancouver

Not a BC resident but if you are not getting any further action from RBC and think that they were discriminating based on race or pretty much any factor you might consider contacting the BC Human Rights tribunal. Take a look over their site here:

Government Document Bearing Hillary Clinton's Signature Proves US-Russian Federation Uranium Deal Occurred submitted by ChangingPerspectives to news

Nicodares 0 points 0 points (+0|-0) ago

The author mentions "Rosatom" as the Russian government's Canadian proxy company. It isn't. Rosatom is a Russian state corporation that is responsible for overseeing Russian nuclear assets. (See )

The change that they seem so excited about "Ministry of the Russian Russian Federation for Atomic Energy" being replaced with "State Corporation for Atomic Energy 'Rosatom'" is a simple correction.

Uranium One is the Canadian company that owned the rights to US uranium. Uranium One, the Canadian company, was sold to Rosatom. There was nothing at all shady about changing the name over to Rosatom.

I agree that the whole deal is sketchy, but this article is a big nothing burger about a minor correction, where the author doesn't seem to actually know the players that were involved.

Edited: Candian to Canadian. Damn Candians and their tasty tasty country.

Clarification: It's like if there was an Australian company that had rights to Canadian minerals, a US state run company "US minerals" buys out the Australian company. In the original draft of the agreement it lists "U.S Department of Geology" and it gets corrected to "US minerals" in a subsequent communication. After the deal a Canadian turns around and says "AHA! We have proof that you sold our minerals to the US through their Australian shell company US minerals!". There was no real attempt to hide that it was being sold to a Russian company. It is also trivial to see that the company is a state corporation. The sketchy parts come in with the donations to Clinton Foundation, amending the export license for the uranium transport company to include Uranium One as source, and hiding what happened to the Uranium after it left the US for processing in Canada, as well as the exact amounts.

The Mighty Jingles - World of Warships (Game)- HMS Leander submitted by Nicodares to Warships

Yeah I was on the fence about whether to submit his stuff because it is game based, but I think his style of presentation combined with the entertainment factor just makes the history more interesting. It takes a dry recitation of facts and turns them into a set of interesting anecdotes that often get slipped in as "funny this should happen, because historically...". I'll try and find some more of his history/ship specific videos to share, I just remembered this one was pretty focused on the ship.
