Is there a term or concept for an exact
local time? Regular time-zone local time is granular. The measurement I’m thinking of, someone standing 10 miles east of me would be at 3:01pm when I’m at 3:00pm. It’s easy to calculate, I’m just curious if there’s a term for it. Thanks! [more inside]

Have you been involved with a performance of Music for 18 Musicians

I'm starting a new job in December, moving on from a chaotic agency to the same job (PR), but in a 150 year old corporation. Work will be slower before Christmas, so a good time to get settled. Please give me your best advice on what to do in my first few days / weeks to put in a good start and lay the foundation for a successful first year! [more inside]
Can I do anything to get a stream (RTSP, ONVIF, motion JPG -- whatever) from either a Kasa Spot Camera (model EC60
) or a Petcube Cam
They both require using a mobile app and going through the vendor's cloud service, but I would like to grab the stream and pop it into my Home Assistant
setup. [more inside]

We seem to have >1 of these
inside, and they are not welcome indoors. I'm addressing all possible entry points, and plumbing is a prime suspect, since I filled a lot of gaps years ago. What should I pour down my late-1970's era drains? [more inside]
In a popular science fiction novel somewhere, there's a bit of dialog about how human thought (or human language) is quarantined from translation by the galaxy because it's so toxic, followed by something to the effect of "you have to be proud of that, huh?". I cannot remember the book or section, and articles on toxic language seem to come up in search results. But I'm hoping the book's popular enough that someone knows the origin.
is a picture of the Chinese beer that I'm looking for in Ohio, Anchor Red Crown. How/where can I find this?
I go to a remote camp house with friends who are somewhat (majorly) college football obsessed. The house is in a valley and *just* outside dependable cellular coverage. If you walk 100 yards up the drive, you can get a decent data connection. Assuming good weather, is it at all practical to use a weather balloon to lift a phone/hot spot to an altitude of 100 yards and piggyback off of that connection for about 3 hours? Assume the payload is less than 8 ounces. [more inside]
I upgraded to Windows 11 Pro on my Intel NUC last week and ever since, the lag time between clicking on ANYTHING and that app/function opening/doing its thing lags for up to a minute. What can I do to fix this? [more inside]
I have a simple TV and FiOS. The audio periodically drops out for a second or two, while the image continues, unaffected. It happens when playing recorded shows from the DVR, during Pandora streams, or content via apps on the Roku.
I have swapped out the Roku and the TV, one at a time, and the problem persists.
What else could it be? [more inside]
I have always pronounced the word "sentient" as "sen-tee-unt" and have always heard others use that pronunciation. However, I just heard someone on TV pronounce it "sen-shunt". Some googling tells me that that's the American pronunciation, and I've been using the British pronunciation all this time? How do you say that word and where do you live? I'm in PA for reference.
This feels like such a noob question, but here it is anyway. I (using Windows 10) have a folder with subfolders inside it. In the subfolders are various image files. I want to rename the primary folder. If I do, what happens with the name path? Will Windows understand the change so I can still find and use the subfolders and files?

My kid is quickly burning through all the Goosebumps books and also craving something a smidge scarier. He is begging for Stephen King but I know he's still a few years away from that. Are there any books that might hit the spot?

Early 2010s there was this food blog by a rich guy in Switzerland. I believe one of the images on the header or background was an old photo or drawings of kids eating pasta with their hands (something like this
). I remember too a big project was installing a tandoor I think into his kitchen. Does this sound familiar to anyone? [more inside]
...except I've actually never made a whipped cream dessert lol. But I'm not a big fan of sweetness. What whipped cream dessert recipes have not so much sugar in them?
I love this question
from a few days ago asking about where to read about the logistics of things! I wish I was the type of person who would read all these things, but I know I never will. I much prefer to consume via audio. Does anyone have any podcast recommendations where they touch on these sorts of topics? I'm basically asking the same question, but in audio form. [more inside]

Someone who I'm not close to, but meet with socially on a regular basis, has suffered a horrendous loss. The way some of our mutual people have been handling the subject has not been great, certain choices in particular seem insensitive in my view.

This year, I'm attending a non-turkey-based Thanksgiving dinner at a friend's. I am partly responsible for providing the side dishes. Salmon is going to be the main course, so my question (as someone who never makes that or pretty much any fish at home) is what do you serve with salmon? [more inside]
I have a ton of audio equipment I inherited from my dad, and I should have asked more about proper setup and wiring for vintage hi-fi while he was here. I have been using his original wiring, but it recently stopped working. It seems pretty fragile anyway and I'd like to make sure I'm doing it right. [more inside]
In my last question, I asked about computer back up. Not totally sure that that is what I'm looking for. I think I want a dropbox-like service, only in my previous question, a bunch of people said that Dropbox is a bad idea, I think for security reasons? So... what service should I get so I can store my files in someone's cloud I guess? [more inside]

How should I build a site/video containing true/verified information that appeals to followers of conspiracy theories? I believe that the aesthetics and structure of conspiracy (and anti-elite in general) media is perceived by many as more reliable than traditional news and fact check websites, and I want to analyze what aspects could be borrowed. The goal is to communicate reliable information in a way that feels authentic to more people, and I could use some ideas. [more inside]

I remember as an elementary school kid, in the early to mid 1980s being shown a bus safety film (that was already probably at least ten years old then) that was hilariously, inappropriately ominous. Blood on the highway, that kind of thing. If I recall correctly, the various unsafe/bad/misbehaving things the various nogoodnik kids did were dramatized and then we were shown the wreckage of the bus, the kids' discarded items, possibly even blood. What did I see?
I am looking for an accurate Spanish phrase for "female devil" or "she devil." I've found ella diablo, and el diablo feminino. I thought it might be el diabla. But the situation in a dramatic script is a Hispanic woman is calling another woman a devil. What would she say and how would she say it so as to be correct?
I know technically we're not supposed to, but I have like three on rotation that I will use for short trips to the grocery store or to pick up a takeout order or something. For days where I need to be at the office the whole day, I will use a fresh one and then throw it out at the end of the day. But is it okay to actually reuse them sometimes?
I have a LLC and I've read this article
which indicates it's possible to buy a business car either a.) using my personal name or b.) using the LLC name.
Having said that, I'm really looking for people who have first-hand experience with this scenario and can help me more fully understand the advantages and disadvantages. Also there are some potential twists that I'll explain inside. [more inside]

Please help me find this word or phrase. It describes when someone perhaps has an ulterior motive, but they rely on culture to give them the benefit of the doubt when it's convenient. Kind of like "a likely story," this person will have two possible motives for their behavior, and depending on the actions of the other person, they'll proclaim their motive (even if it is disingenuous) is the one that they intended.

I find that I keep signing up for courses and seminars related to my interests like language courses, art history and literature courses - essentially short courses offered at various universities. I am always so excited about the courses but when they actually start I find I do minimal work (I barely keep with readings/homework) and find myself getting really stressed. What I am doing wrong? Is there something wrong with me? Just to add that I do learn a lot from these courses and enjoy the intellectual stimulation - but I feel like I am not doing enough (which of course is true).

We are a family of three (two adults in their early thirties and a toddler) who are looking to travel from Australia to Charlotte, North Carolina next year for a few weeks.
The reason behind the trip are complicated, but please trust that they are valid and I think that this trip does need to happen next year. Can you help me to make this trip as "covid safe" as possible? [more inside]
I'm making an indoor "greenhouse" - basically a large, attractive (I hope) structure to keep humidity up around my plants. I might even let my frog run around in there. What's better than clear vinyl, which is probably too toxic for all involved, and less milky/translucent/white than the polyethylene sheeting I've found so far? Cost < $50 for 10 yards is a bonus.

My last two eye exams were on beautiful fall days. Each time I got dilating eye drops. The first time when I left the eye doctor the sky was so blue it vibrated. The yellow trees were brighter. The red trees looked backlit like the brightest setting on your computer, but large as life. The red brick buildings GLOWED. The world was so changed I thought I was high. [more inside]

Their birthday is in 11 days and we're drawing blanks on what to get them. What are some great gift ideas? Budget is a couple of hundred dollars.

My thirteen-year-old who previously tore through books hasn’t been reading lately and I want to recommend some books that will hold their attention.

I tend to think the U.S. prescribes too many drugs and tests, compared to their peers in other industrialized countries. I also read Barbara Eichenreich's Natural Causes: An Epidemic of Wellness, the Certainty of Dying, and Killing Ourselves to Live Longer

Because of COVID cancellations, I have $600 in my Alaska Airline wallet set to expire at the end of this year. But I moved to Canada and try my best not to fly for environmental reasons anyway.

I am in a fairly new (~3 month) relationship with a wonderful dude who has decided to go back to school. He is in his mid-40s, is coming out of the service industry, and will be a full-time student. His birthday is coming up, and I'd like at least part of his gift to be something useful for this new chapter in his life. What are some things that could make this transition easier, or be super useful as an adult student? Open to price points and I'll supplement with a small gift that is more personal and/or fun.
