2021.06.14 16:47 NetflixBestShows Green Book; The Courage to Change People’s Heart
| You can’t categorize Green Book by watching the first hour of the movie. It’s 1962. It starts by introducing Tony Lip (Viggo Mortensen) as an Italian-American bouncer who is in trying to find a new job. He gets hired by Dr. Don Shirley (Mahershala Ali), a high-class black pianist to drive him for his eight-week concert tour through the Midwest and Deep South.|
In the beginning, we guess Green Book is going to play around the difference between the manners and moral values of these two characters. And it ends with showing that both of them changed after companionship in a road story.
Later on, we discover the hidden motivation of Don for traveling to southern states of the United States where racism is obvious in all aspects of life. Green Book is brilliant in showing the cultural roots of racism without paying directly to it.
In another thoughtful approach, the movie shows how Don is isolated from both white and black communities. And how his aristocratic lifestyle distanced him from ordinary black people he tries to defend.
Tony expresses this separation to Don in this way:
Tony: Christ, I’m blacker than you are.
Don Shirley: Excuse me?
Tony: You don’t know shit about your own people. What they eat, how they talk, how they live. You don’t even know who Little Richard is.
But Don’s self-description of his loneliness shows how deep is his suffering from. He says:
“Yes, I live in a castle, Tony! Alone. And rich white people pay me to play piano for them because it makes them feel cultured. But as soon as I step off that stage, I go right back to being just another nigger to them. Because that is their true culture. And I suffer that slight alone, because I’m not accepted by my own people ’cause I’m not like them, either. So, if I’m not black enough and if I’m not white enough and if I’m not man enough, then tell me, Tony, what am I?”
Tony’s illiteracy works in two ways for the story. First, it shows how poverty keeps Tony at a lower level in society and how lack of education limits him to be a bouncer or a driver. Second, it makes his relationship with Don more friendly while motivating him to read more and write better letters to his wife...

2021.06.14 16:47 prettybadengineer Reading books are cumbersome and less beneficial than they have been in the past
I want to preface this by saying that I do still read books occasionally; however, I’m noticed diminishing returns with how accessible information is online (you still need to know how to parse through the garbage). Additionally, I feel like I’m much happier learning a new skill or picking up a hobby in place of reading. I’m genuinely perplexed why there is such a mindset that you need to be well-read (with respect to books) to be intelligent, educated, or financially sound when in reality there are many alternative options out there nowadays. Additionally, while many books do provide facts they are often biased by the author whom your reading. I’d rather have a spectrum associated with the topic to make a more well-informed decision. I’m assuming it’s a generational difference at this point; my 2¢.

2021.06.14 16:47 EsoTerrix1984 Problem with player being written into story.
I am struggling with a player who has made some questionable decisions. Recently, he was caught stealing from the party for the second time.
The players present expelled the character from the party under penalty of death.
The players still all want to play together, but they got tired of being stolen from, lied to, cheated, etc.
I'm looking at ways to get the player back into the campaign. I am thinking of a 'celestial contract' type deal that basically makes it so the player's character will die if they do anything to harm the party again.

2021.06.14 16:47 WhatThePale Motivation problems.
I started playing chess at the start of the year, my current rating is 960. Ive almost been to 1000, 4 times actually. My rating goes up to 980-996 or so and i start losing and drop back down to 950, i didnt give up and kept trying, until i hit 996 (my peak rating) and started to lose and go back to 950. Ive stopped playing chess for 3 weeks now because of it, are there any tips on motivation to play chess? Everytime i play its just elo anxiety to try to get to 1000. My goal of hitting 1300-1500 really seems impossible now.

2021.06.14 16:47 circles208 How can I get upmc to leave me alone?
I'm just wondering if anyone maybe works there or has had this experience and successfully made it stop? I do have their insurance but the heavy surveillance needs to stop. They call me about every two weeks asking really peesonal questions. Last week they called and asked if I wanted some "free" heath assessment that I so not need in my own home. When I said no thanks they kept asking why and refuting any answers I gave. I just got a call from them now saying their pharmacy department noticed I'm three days late getting a prescription, I told them I had some extra and to please stop calling because it's them I have the most issues with (and yes I mean the pharmacy department at umpc healthcare, not my drug store) and they just started asking questions asking why.
Jesus Christ bananas it's none of their business. Are there any steps I can get to keep them off my back?

2021.06.14 16:47 BillMan111111 What was the moment you realized you had a fake friend?
2021.06.14 16:47 Kill_All_Weaboos I finally fell in love and she needs to move 5 hours away next year.
We met last year and we had an instant connection. We were both doing our thing and fell off for a while but reconnected around Christmas and it was like old friends. We both fell hard and fast. Things were (and are) going extremely well. Then she informed me that the PI of her lab accepted a job at another university 5 hours away. She has to go with his lab. Well, she doesn't have to but to not do it would set her back a lot in her education. Everyone associated with the project is going.
This puts me in the situation of choosing between love and stability. I have an excellent job, far above what I thought I would ever get with my bachelor's degree. I got my foot in the door with a clinical laboratory by a stroke of luck and they agreed to train me on the job so I could get certified, so I did. It went so well I was able to buy a home this past year after working for only 4 years. I purchased it in July 2020 and then the prices went crazy so it's worth well over what I paid already.
Now I would have no issue selling my home and leaving everyone I know. The problem is in leaving my job. I can't get anything near it at the destination. I would be taking a paycut of nearly 30-40% in many cases, without even calculating for my benefits (free healthcare/insurance) which coupled with her lack of income while in school would prove problematic.
To get a similar job I need a state license that I can only get by enrolling in courses that would take over a year just to get me elligible for licensure, at which point she will nearly be done with her PhD.
So I need to decide whether I'm willing to do all that for love or break it off so as to not keep stringing her along, and that's a lot on my mind.
Really I knew things were going too well.
