2023.02.02 05:54 assessment_bot [1 Fatal] [January 12 2023] PIPER PA-28-180, Dawsonville/ GA USA

NTSB Preliminary Narrative

On January 12, 2023, about 2017 eastern standard time, a Piper PA-28-180, N4254T, was destroyed when it was involved in an accident near Dawsonville, Georgia. The pilot was fatally injured. The airplane was operated as a Title 14 Code of Federal Regulations Part 91 personal flight. According to the pilot’s family and flight track records, on January 6, 2023, the pilot departed his home airport of Stafford Regional Airport (RMN), Stafford, Virginia, and arrived at the Concord-Padgett Regional Airport (JQF), Concord, North Carolina. On January 8, 2023, he departed JQF and arrived at the Cherokee County Regional Airport (CNI), Canton, Georgia. The purpose of the trip was work related meetings. According to Fixed Base-Operator (FBO) personnel at CNI, on the day of the accident about 1600, the pilot arrived at the airport via rental car and requested that his airplane be fueled. The line staff was unable to do so at that time due to heavy rain and lightning nearby. FBO personnel reported that they had a discussion with the pilot on his plan to takeoff in poor weather and fly at night. The pilot stated that “after the rain passes it should be fine right?” The pilot further stated that he had an international flight scheduled the following day from the Washington, DC area and wanted to leave as soon as possible. The staff reported that after further discussion, the pilot agreed for them to book a hotel in the local area. The staff also provided the code to the airport gate should he want to arrive in the morning before the FBO opened and the pilot subsequently left the airport in a rental car. Fuel records showed that, later in the evening at 1954, the pilot returned to the airport after the FBO had closed and, via self-service, added 27 gallons of 100-low lead aviation gasoline to his airplane. According to preliminary Automatic Dependent Surveillance – Broadcast (ADS-B) flight track information from the Federal Aviation Administration (FAA), at 2005 the airplane departed runway 23 at CNI. The airplane flew on varying headings towards the east-northeast and continued to climb for about 10 minutes reaching a peak altitude of about 7,200 ft mean sea level (msl). In the final 2 minutes of the flight, the airplane’s altitude began to descend, and a series of tight turns were entered before the airplane subsequently entered a rapidly descending spiral turn. The airplane’s final position was recorded at 2017:32, about .15-mile south of the accident site at an altitude of about 2,000 ft msl. Figure 1 shows the final few minutes of the ADS-B flight track and the location of the accident site.
Figure 1: Overview of the final minutes of the ADS-B flight track On January 13, 2023, about 0900, an FAA Alert Notice (ALNOT) for a missing aircraft was issued after family notified the FAA of a missing airplane. The wreckage was located a few hours later. The airplane impacted wooded terrain near the top of rising terrain at an elevation of 1,250 ft msl about 14 miles northeast of CNI. The wreckage was highly fragmented and was located largely in one compact area. All major portions of the airframe were located. Flight control continuity was established from all primary flight control surfaces to the cockpit except for separations that were consistent with tensile overload. The cockpit, switches, levers, and flight instruments were all severely damaged by impact damage. The directional gyro was disassembled, and its gyro and housing exhibited rotational scoring. The engine was co-located with the cockpit and fuselage debris. It sustained significant impact damage and could not be rotated by hand. Continuity of the crankshaft and camshaft was observed visually after two cylinders were removed. Borescope examination of each cylinder revealed no abnormalities. The oil filter, when removed and examined, displayed no evidence of debris or metal contaminants. Both magnetos produced spark when rotated by an electric drill. The vacuum pump remained attached to the engine accessory section. When the vacuum pump was partially disassembled, its gears were intact, and the unit appeared normal. The propeller remained attached to a portion of the crankshaft propeller flange. It exhibited blade polishing, chordwise scratches, and S-bending. According to FAA airman records, the pilot held a private pilot certificate with a rating for airplane single-engine land. He was issued the certificate on November 23, 2022. He was issued a third-class medical certificate on December 17, 2020. He subsequently completed the FAA Basic Medical course on November 9, 2022. According to FAA registration records, the pilot purchased the accident airplane on March 2, 2021. Review of the pilot’s logbook revealed a total of 193 flight hours that of which 191 hours were in the accident make and model airplane. A total of 4.4 night hours and 4.5 simulated instrument hours were logged. Zero hours of actual instrument hours were logged. The last flight logged was on November 22, 2022, the day before the pilot’s private pilot checkride. About 30 hours of additional flights in the accident airplane were recorded on commercial flight tracking websites from November 23, 2022, to the day of the accident. Review of hourly weather observations at the departure airport found that, at 1955, visibility was 10 statute miles, with clouds scattered at 700 ft and 7,500 ft above ground level (agl), with remarks that lightning was distant to the northeast. At 2015, visibility reduced to 1 statute mile, with thunderstorms and mist in the vicinity. The cloud ceiling was broken at 900 ft agl, overcast at 2,600 ft agl, with remarks that lightning was distant to the northeast. According to ForeFlight account data stored at the company, the most recent route of flight entered at 1822 was for a direct route from CNI to RMN at 7,500 ft. According to preliminary FAA air traffic control (ATC) records and FAA contracted flight service, there was no known communication between the pilot and ATC, nor was there a visual flight rules (VFR) flight plan opened or on-file for the accident flight. The wreckage was retained for further examination.

2023.02.02 01:48 soparamens The always up-to-date Redditor's Guide to the Yucatan State!

This guide (and subreddit) is NOT about the Yucatan Peninsula as a whole! if you have any doubt or question about Cancun, Playa del Carmen or Campeche, please ask about those places at the main /mexico subreddit
But isn't all Yucatan? From wikipedia: "The Yucatán Peninsula (Spanish: Península de Yucatán) comprises the Mexican states of Yucatán, Campeche, and Quintana Roo" Map of the Yucatan Peninsula https://imgur.com/OAGF0Yj

So, visiting us? Welcome to the redditor's guide to the ancient land of The Maya!

This text is mainly intended as guide on alternative, less visited and locals-only experiences. Because of that reason, you won't see much info about places of mass tourism like Puerto Progreso or Valladolid. Wel'll provide tips about less visited yet still awesome locations instead.
First, some historic background:
Altough there is no consensus about how the land got it's name, the "i can't understand your language" theory is more myth than reality. The best explanation is that the “Yucatán” word is an Spanish term coined when Bartolomé Colón found some Mayan traders canoeing at the caribbean sea, around August, 1512. When asked about the place's name, the local Maya answered by saying "Yoko't taan" wich means "we speak the Yoko't Language" (one of the many maya languages) so the Spanish proceeded to use that answer as a name for their newly "discovered" land.
For the local Maya, their land has always been "The Mayab" or the land o of the few (selected) ones.

Some basic Q&A about travelling to the Yucatan state

Is it safe to travel to the Yucatan state?
Answer: Mexico is a BIG country. Some areas of it sadly have this violence problem, but that's NOT the case of the Yucatan state. Mind that the Cancun area (Quintana Roo state) has seen recently a spike in violence, but as we said before, this sub is specific about the Yucatan state, so let's skip that part.
Check this Graphic by vision of humanity wich classifies the Yucatan state as #1 in Mexico regarding security. In fact, Mérida (the state's capital city) is actually safer than most US top cities.
Where do i begin?
Most people arrive to the Yucatan state from the neighboring Cancun, wich has the busiest international airport in Mexico. From there you have 2 options:
We reccommend you to travel to Merida and use the city as a hub, since it has plenty of lodging optionsand the city in itself has plenty of amenities and is well connected to other points of interest wich can be visited as day trips. It has an international airport too, hospitals and health services in case of emergency.
Btw, Mérida is considered the safest, best quality of life city in Mexico.
Some of the most popular destinations in the state are:
* Valladolid http://www.visitmexico.com/en/magicaltowns/things-to-do-in-valladolid-yucatan) and the neighboring Ekbalam https://www.tripadvisor.com.mx/ShowUserReviews-g2093488-d3518917-r37650324-Ek_Balam-Ek_Balam_Village_Yucatan_Peninsula.html It's Kinda becoming a mass tourism destination, but still charming.
* Chichen Itza https://www.reddit.com/chichenitza/ home of the world wonder Temple of Kukulkán https://i.imgur.com/UusGG3E.jpg. Note that this place is really crowded, if you want a no less impressive alternative with way WAY less tourism, you can visit Uxmal. https://youtu.be/huHOXKx3aVA?t=443
* Izamal the yellow city!
* The impressive Cuzama cenotes https://www.featherandthewind.com/blog/guide-cuzama-cenotes-xtohil-yucatan and the lesser known cenotes of Homun https://www.whyweseek.com/cenotes-homun/)
* The sleepy coastal village of Sisal https://yucatantoday.com/lets-all-go-to-sisal/?lang=en
* Flamingo Adventures on Celestún https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tgM8NDFLidY
* the extreme Calcehtok Caves https://en-yucatan.com/ruta-puuc/calcehtok-caves/
We have a nice post collection of hidden gems here

FOOD

Question: How about the food, can I eat there safely?
Answer: you have probably heard that in Mexico the best food is street food and that's true... but this has a catch in the Yucatan state: Due to the state's tropical, hot and humid environment, eating from street vendors is not recommended, specially if this is your first time in the 3rd world. Street level food in the tropics is often contaminated by bacteria and can cause stomach diseases, specially if you have never been in a developing country before. Salmonella, E Colli and and fecal matter is often an issue with street vendors in Yucatan, so avoid those and prefer stablished restaurants. Yes, i know this contradicts most of the current hipster trend and you would prefer to eat a mango direcly from the street stall, but it's up to you to evaluate the risk.
Btw, the Yucatan Cuisine is considered by most experts as one of the top cuisines of Mexico. Check this Yucatan cuisine specialized restaurants while in Merida:
El Príncipe Tutul Xiu
La Tradición
Wayan'e
And/or check this smaller ones, if you prefer a more petite comite kind of experience:
Restaurant Cantamayec
Manjar Blanco
Flor de Azahar
If you are into fancy, no traditional but very local food you might like Kuuk
Izamal has two superb Yucatan food restaurants:
Kinich just beside the great pyramid of Izamal.
La Conquista is located in an old mansion and has awesome service.
Want some seafood? Heladio's at Progreso is really good, just order a beer and they will provide FREE food. Ask for a dozen and they will give you a feast.
This Restaurant (located in the former Chablé Hacienda, now lavish resort) Won the 2017 Prix Versailles award to world's best. It's indeed beautiful!
Those have great standards so you can eat safely.
Can i drink tap water?
Answer: NO. You should always drink bottled water. Bonafont, Electropura and Cristal are good choices. Make sure you stay very hydrated when travelling the Yucatan countryside (specially if you are visiting us from a cold place like northern Europe or Canada) and always carry a water bottle with you. Mayo clinic reccomends that if you feel like overheating, just Get to a shady or air-conditioned place (hotel, convenience store, restaurant) rehydrate with water or sports drinks but don't drink sugary or alcoholic beverages to rehydrate.

General questions

Do I need to speak Spanish?
You can be perfectly fine without any spanish speaking skills while visiting Merida or Valladolid, as most of the tourist services are billingual. White uniform cops always speak english, look for them!) but it will not hurt if you learn some Basic Spanish Vocabulary for travelers If you have an Android phone, you can use the Google Translator app in conversation mode (more on mobile internet while in Yucatan later)
Beware that you will not find much people that speaks english in the countryside! so don't count on that.
What about medical insurance?
it’s definitely a good idea to get some form of traveler’s insurance from back home. Don’t worry, we have excellent hospitals like this one https://www.starmedica.com/home/es/micro-sitio/merida/secInformacion) or This one https://www.facebook.com/clinicademerida/ that may cover your insurance and have english speaking personnel.
For all those minor problems like traveller's diarrhea, headache or minor injuries, Merida has plenty of Dr. Simi pharmacies that can treat you for $2 USD plus meds.
Do i need a VISA?
Answer: Check [this guide: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Visa_policy_of_Mexico#Visa_exemption to check if your country is required for a visa. USA and Canada citizens do not need a visa.
Can I bring / bear weapons while in Mexico?
No! bringing or carrying JUST ANY kind of firearm while in Mexico IS A FELONY and will put you in a nasty Mexican jail.
How about drugs?
Answer: From the US embassy's website:
Persons violating Mexican laws, even unknowingly, may be expelled, arrested, or imprisoned. Penalties for possession, use or trafficking in illegal drugs in Mexico are severe, and convicted offenders can expect long jail sentences and heavy fines. If you break local laws in Mexico, your U.S. citizenship will not help you avoid arrest or prosecution*. It is very important to know what is legal and what is illegal wherever you go. If arrested in Mexico, a U.S. citizen must go through the foreign legal process including possible charge or indictment, prosecution, possible conviction and sentencing, and any appeals process.*
So, please avoid using, selling or buying illegal drugs while you are here, I'ts not worth it and you can get caught in a hellish situation if you get busted.
Marijuana, cannabinoids and related are in a grey area right now. Those products are technically legal to USE in Mexico, however you can't import it or it's related products (including oils and vape fluids) While CBD is legal in Mexico, you can't bring any of your local brands with you, because those lack the mexican permits and carrying them will be considered drug trafficking. Just buy local and never more than a few grams. Your US or Canadian prescription is legally invalid in Mexico as the country does not yet contemplate such prescriptions as medical.
Can i bring my meds?
Some meds need a prescription and you need to show it to the Mexican customs agent. Here is [a list of such meds https://drive.google.com/file/d/0BxwQlfffkheSdjhDRUo5bmpoRk0/view?usp=sharing Make sure you bring the prescription with you at every moment.
How about booze at Merida city?
Alcohol is 100% legal, but most convenience stores and supermarkets are limited to certain hours/days in which they can sell alcoholic beverages, ask the employees about this before getting your drinks. Night clubs stop selling alcoholic drinks at 3:00 AM, so place your last order before that. Make sure you ask for the local beer (remember that any "cheap beer" from your country will be imported and because of that expensive here!)
Is it expensive there?
As any other touristic destination, The Yucatan state can be as cheap and as expensive as you can expect from such a place. Make sure you plan your trip from home, check the websites of the hotels and restaurants that you plan to visit and make your calculations (tripadvisor is great for this) Being said that, you’ll find that our state is very affordable.
Some example prices (USD)
* Full Meal for one, at a clean, centric restaurant at Mérida city: $ 8.00
* Full Meal for one, at a clean restaurant at the Pisté village near Chichen Itza: $ 15.00
* Dinner for one at a nice, classy restaurant in Merida City: $ 40.00
* A Superior or Corona beer in any of the many restaurants in Merida's downtown $2.50
* A McDonalds combo $ 4.50
* A Pizza from Domino’s $ 12.00

LODGING

Is AirBnb in Merida a good idea?
There are some really, really nice https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=iD0F8coKN1E&t=364s) AirBnb and Remixto https://remixto.com/ places available in Mérida, but the real deal breaker on those would be about the public transport options around. I have seen people getting nice AirBnb houses in the coast and then complaining about those being too isolated and the transport fares being too expensive. Merida specifically is not really a "walkable city" because most of the year the climate is too hot, so always contemplate the need of using public transport when booking.
Note that AirBnb and similar platforms are not always the cheapest or more convenient options, so do not discard hotels and be sure to check some of those using google maps.
For those with a tight budget, Hostals are a good option

https://goo.gl/maps/BfVZZLkWLq5cqBjK8

TRANSPORT

Can i use public transportation in Merida?
We have public buses here, but unfortunately most of the routes are messy and don’t have a real hourly schedule, so i would not recommend using that.
Taxicabs vary greatly in service, so use those only when no other options available. ALWAYS ask them for an estimate before your trip. YOU DONT TIP OVER THE PRICE OF THE SERVICE, NOT A DIME! Even if asked for.
What about UBER?
Uber and Didi are good options to move around the city. Skip Indriver!
Can i travel using passenger trains?
No trains here (yet) sorry.
What is the best way to travel around the Yucatan countryside?
Yucatan is well conected by bus routes and all the main touristic spots are accesible via comfortable, 1st class buses. ADO buses is the best company around https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=5o8eC3TflVY.
Note that NOT all interesting sites are accesible via 1st class buses. Some interesting places can only be reached using second class, old buses with no air conditioning (in a climate that reaches the 40 celsius you will really need AC) no bathroom and poor hygiene that will stop at every small town in the road taking 4x the time of a 1st class one.
Sure there are other options like private owned Colectivo taxis, but those have their own cons, like being operated by not properly trained drivers, they only travel when full (you need to wait until the taxi gets VERY full or pay for all the seats) and you can be overcharged easily because they usually don't have controlled fees and see tourists like walking dollar bags. Unlike 1st class buses, You'll not be covered by any travellers insurance while riding colectivos and boy do they crash often!.
Renting a car
The absolute best way to explore all those off the beaten path places is renting a car. Let me explain that with a simple itinerary:
As you can see, renting a car allows you to get to places that would be hard to reach without one, so it's completely worth it.
Some car rental services:
http://www.montejocarrental.com
http://eng.velozrentacar.mx/
Always record the rental car with your phone, noting every dent and detail you may find before taking it!

INTERNET ACCESS

Do not commit the mistake of just counting that your moble phone provider will just work in Mexico! Ask your provider about coverage and roaming costs, if any! For example YOUR AT&T plan includes free data and voice roaming in Mexico, but other companies might not and you'll find a huge roaming bill when back home, so beware.
If you don't want to spend on a roaming data pack or similar with your service provider, you can do this:
1.- While at home, buy a cheapo GSM, unlocked Android smartphone. Any recent android phone will do, but it must be factory unlocked.
2.- Arriving to Mexico, Buy a prepaid SIM (we call them amigo CHIP) from TELCEL (there are several other carriers, but Telcel has the best coverage by far) at any OXXO store (kinda a 7/11 store) Just ask for an "Amigo Chip" and ask for a "paquete telcel 200" wich includes unlimited calls to the US and Canada and 3 GB of data.
3.- Put that sim on your cheapo phone and use it to call home and as a wifi hotspot. You can buy a cheapo phone in OXXO too.
Merida city has a lot of parks with free wifi hotspots, locate the ones near you hotel and chat with friends and family from there!
http://www.merida.gob.mx/internet/centro.phpx
There you go. The Yucatan state is very well supported by google maps (don't forget to save the Yucatan map for offline navigation ) and real GPS apps like Sygic and Ndrive (better option that Google Maps if you plan to explore the state).

2023.01.31 23:14 ibayleaf AITA for bringing my boyfriend to my grandmother's funeral?

My (26F) and my sisters (36F) grandmother passed away on January 1st of this year. We never got to say goodbye to her because I was in a different state and my uncle wouldn't allow my sister to talk to her, even on the phone. (That's too much to get into now) It took about a month for my uncle and the VA to get things rolling for a funeral, but we eventually got a date. My sister and I live somewhat close (about 45 minutes) to each other, but our grandmother lived about 5 hours away from us. Our plan was for me and my boyfriend (29M) to meet my sister at her house a day before the funeral and drive down with her young son and our cousin and stay at a hotel. Apparently I forgot to tell some of the details to my boyfriend because my sister wants to leave in the afternoon but my boyfriend doesn't get off work til 4 or 5 pm (he works from home), and he thought we were leaving straight from our house instead of 45 minutes out of our way to drive down to the hotel. I ended up telling my sister that there was a miscommunication on my part, I apologized and told her my boyfriend and I will be driving down later in the evening. My sister ended up blowing up at me, saying that my boyfriend never met our grandmother and asked why he's even coming. I said he's there for moral support and that I wanted him there. She then went on about how I'm now gonna give all my attention to him instead of her when this is obviously a hard time for her. I kept telling her that that's not the case, but she kept telling me I am putting my partner before my family. Now I feel like a total jerk for even thinking of bringing my boyfriend and my boyfriend asked if he should even go now. I'm not sure how else to de-escalate this situation. I've already apologized a few times and told her there's nothing else i can really do at this point. so aita?

2023.01.31 03:39 TripperE10 Infosec Institute In Person CISSP Bootcamp

First off, this sub is great. I have been studying for 3 months and have visited here often. It's full of great advice and information.
Has anyone completed a boot camp through infosec institute? I'm scheduled to do it in person in the very near future. Getting information about this bootcamp has been like pulling teeth!
My bootcamp was supposed to be in NYC. Two weeks out it still said pending. I reached out to my rep who has been slow to respond since I paid... only to find out that it has been cancelled! I wonder when they were planning to let me know! I was able to switch to another the same week in Dulles, VA. I booked the Hotel, then realized the start date was a Sunday. My mistake but I reached out to my rep to confirm... nothing. I just received an email from the ops team at Infosec Institute with a little more detail, but nothing about the actual exam.
My rep told me that we take the exam on the last day of bootcamp. I even double checked with him to confirm. However, from the email I just received, it does not look like that is part of the bootcamp. On the course syllabus, it says that the exam is on Day 7...It's a 6-day bootcamp... If it is the following Saturday, I need to make arrangements to stay.
I have called them today but had to leave a message and didn't get a call back. So has anyone gone through it? Do you actually take the exam at the end? If so, is on the last day of boot camp, or the day after?
Thanks a bunch for any info!

2023.01.30 21:42 AMerrickanGirl Tengo una pregunta sobre viajar a Mazatlan.

Hola. Estoy aprendiendo español y mi vocabulario es muy limitado, así que ten paciencia por favor.
En Abril 2024 habrá un eclipse del sol, y el eclipse va a pasar por Mazatlán y quisiera ir a verlo.
Soy una mujer y tengo mas de sesenta años. Es Mazatlán una ciudad segura? Como sabré dónde están los hoteles seguros?
Si me dice no viajar a Mazatlán, voy a ir a Austin Texas en su lugar. El eclipse estará allí también pero el clima en Mexico es más mejor.
Gracias.

2023.01.30 21:32 disgruntledbeagle Situación cerca al aeropuerto?

Buenas. Vivo en Estados Unidos y tengo una amiga que está viajando a Lima en una semana para ir de vacaciones en un crusero. Ella no va a visitar Lima en esta oportunidad (por razonas obvias) pero está preocupada por lo que está pasando por allá. Mi amiga llega al aeropuerto y se va a alojar en ese hotel que está justo ahí (Costa del Sol?). Al día siguiente va a pedir un carro que la lleve a donde comienza el crusero (en verdad no se). Como están las cosas en esa área? No creo que vaya a salir pero igual está preocupada. Gracias!

Tổng hợp bài tập về thì quá khứ đơn (có đáp án) từ cơ bản đến nâng cao
Thì quá khứ đơn (Past simple tense) là một thì cơ bản và xuất hiện rất nhiều trong các đề thi, đề kiểm tra Tiếng Anh. Các dạng bài tập về thì quá khứ đơn thường gặp như chia động từ, viết lại câu, chuyển từ chủ động sang bị động …
Trong bài học ngày hôm nay, ihoctienganh sẽ tổng hợp cho các bạn bài tập thì quá khứ đơn từ (past simple tense) từ cơ bản đến nâng cao kèm đáp án để các bạn thực hành và nắm chắc hơn kiến thức về thì này.

Tổng hợp lý thuyết và bài tập thì quá khứ đơn

1. Kiến thức cơ bản cần nắm về thì quá khứ đơn

Trước khi bắt đầu thực hành làm các bài tập về thì quá khứ đơn, hãy cùng ihoctienganh ôn lại một vài điều bạn cần ghi nhớ về thì này nhé!
Thì quá khứ đơn (Past simple tense) là thì được dùng để diễn tả các hoạt động, sự việc đã diễn ra và hoàn thành trong quá khứ.

1.1. Công thức thì quá khứ đơn (Past simple tense)

Để hoàn thành các bài tập thì quá khứ đơn dạng chia động từ, các bạn cần nắm được cấu trúc thì quá khứ đơn dạng khẳng định, phủ định và nghi vấn. Cụ thể:

Công thức thì quá khứ đơn (Past simple tense)
Lưu ý về cách chia động từ trong quá khứ đơn
Với các động từ có quy tắc, chúng ta chỉ cần thêm đuôi -ed vào sau động từ. Tuy nhiên các bạn cần lưu ý, các quy tắc thêm -ed nhé.
Ví dụ:
  • learn -> learned
  • worry -> worried
  • dance -> danced,...
Với các động từ bất quy tắc, các bạn sẽ cần học thuộc lòng dạng quá khứ của các động từ này trong bảng động từ bất quy tắc (Cột 2 - V2).
Ví dụ:
  • go -> went
  • find -> found
  • write -> wrote

1.2. Câu bị động với thì quá khứ đơn

Một dạng bài tập về thì quá khứ đơn rất thường gặp nữa đó là chuyển từ câu chủ động sang bị động. Để chinh phục dạng bài này, các bạn cần nắm vững công thức sau:
Khẳng định: S + was/were + Ved/V3
Phủ định: S + was/were + not + Ved/V3
Nghi vấn: Was/Were + S + Ved/V3…(by O)?
Khi chuyển từ dạng chủ động sang bị động ở thì quá khứ đơn các bạn cần lưu ý:
  • Tân ngữ (O) trong câu chủ động sẽ được chuyển thành chủ ngữ (S) trong câu bị động.
  • Động từ Tobe trong câu bị động (was/were) sẽ được chia phụ thuộc vào chủ ngữ của câu.
  • Biến chủ ngữ trong câu chủ động (S) thành tân ngữ (O) trong câu bị động và thêm “by”. Trong một số trường hợp chủ ngữ trong câu chủ động không xác định, bạn có thể lược bỏ chúng, ví dụ: by people, by them, …
Ví dụ:
Câu chủ động: They built the bridge in 2000.
=> Câu bị động: The bridge was built in 2000.
Câu chủ động: Did she make the cake?
=> Câu bị động: Was the cake made by her?

2. Tổng hợp bài tập về thì quá khứ đơn từ cơ bản đến nâng cao

Lý thuyết và bài tập luôn cần phải song hành với nhau. Bạn hãy vận dụng ngay những kiến thức trong phần trên để thực hành làm các bài tập thì quá khứ đơn từ cơ bản đến nâng cao dưới đây.

2023.01.29 17:00 TaMere_26 Rant about lack of offroad opportunities on E coast.

I live on the coast of VA and have been trying hard to find somewhere to offroad my FJ. Ih8mud recommended the George Washington National Forest so the first weekend of 2023 we packed up the family and made the ~4 hour drive to find some dirt. Long story a little shorter, everything even halfway interesting was closed. The only dirt we could find was roads so smooth a Civic could drive down them at speed. In one obscure forum i even found the location of a trailhead that is not sanctioned by the park and was supposed to be open year round; it now has a fence in front of it as well. The weekend ended up costing us $350 dollars after gas, food and the Hotel and we could have done all of it in my wife's Volvo.
Im sure, somewhere in the park, or nearby there must be some decent offroading but the park is so big that it takes a good chunk of the day just to get from one part to another and we just ended up running out of time and patience.
Are most of you driving multiple hours and getting hotels just to use your FJs?

2023.01.29 16:19 walterherbst Lee Harvey Oswald, June Cobb, and the Norman, Oklahoma Connection

Lee Harvey Oswald, June Cobb, and the Norman, Oklahoma Connection
June Cobb was an operative for the Federal Bureau of Narcotics (FBN) and the CIA in the late 1950s and early 1960s who had a connection to Lee Harvey Oswald. Both tried to infiltrate the Fair Play for Cuba Committee, both were in Mexico City at the same time, and the last book Oswald withdrew from the Dallas library was The Shark and the Sardines, edited by Cobb. She was also a member of the Civil Air Patrol (CAP) in Norman, Oklahoma. It was the same organization Oswald served under David Ferrie while living in New Orleans. Meanwhile, David Harold Byrd, the wealthy Texas oilman who owned the Texas School Book Depository building, was one of the founders of the CAP. After the assassination he had the sniper’s nest window, from which Oswald allegedly fired at JFK, removed, then hung in his Dallas mansion as a macabre kind of trophy, a gesture that gives one pause.
One could argue this was all coincidence were it not that the notation “Norman, Oklahoma” was written in Oswald’s notebook with a street address below the Norman reference, 1318 ½ Garfield. The property owner from 1961 to 1967, Mae Logan, said several teenagers lived there between 1962 and 1963, until they got involved with drugs. The woman who lived there before the teenagers developed cancer and was hospitalized. Two years before that, the woman’s parents both died from cancer. Which may be significant, because at the time the University of Oklahoma in Norman was part of the CIA’s MKULTRA program, where researchers conducted tests with LSD, which involved Dr. Louis West. A recovered CIA document that listed different MKULTRA subprojects showed that Subproject 43 was associated with West and occurred at the University of Oklahoma.
Dr. West was also the doctor asked to do a psychiatric evaluation on Jack Ruby during his trial for killing Oswald. West found Ruby insane, which saved him from the death penalty and likely kept Ruby quiet. However, on October 25, 1966, a judge granted Ruby a retrial and shortly thereafter, a doctor visited Ruby in prison and injected him with something. Ruby would die of lung cancer on January 3, 1967, a little over two months after he was granted a retrial. According to Dallas Deputy Sheriff Al Maddox, Ruby thought he was injected with cancer cells. “That’s what he told me…Ruby shook hands with me, and I could feel a piece of paper in his palm… he said it was a conspiracy, and he said,…if you will keep your eyes open and your mouth shut, you’re gonna learn a lot.”
Dr. West’s connection to Norman is relevant to Cobb, Oswald, and Norman OK, because of an additional link to two soldiers-of-fortune named Thomas Eli Davis and Loran Hall. Davis ran guns with Jack Ruby, was CIA-connected, and in 1963 tried to organize a paramilitary force to invade Haiti in the months leading up to the JFK assassination. And from July 16 to October 1, 1958, Davis was admitted for psychiatric treatment at Detroit, Michigan’s Lafayette Clinic, which was also being used by the CIA to conduct MKULTRA mind-control experiments. Could Davis have been one of Lafayette’s subjects, like Oswald was at the Bordentown Reformatory in New Jersey when he was a teenager? Davis was also an FBN informant. Adding to the intrigue is that Dr. West was also affiliated with Lafayette Clinic, and one wonders if the Norman, Oklahoma connection was the drug experimentation West conducted there.
We also know that June Cobb spent months in a New York hospital where the CIA performed mind-altering drug experiments. She then returned repeatedly to Norman, Oklahoma, as did Thomas Davis and Loran Hall. Was this a coincidence, or were they all guinea pigs in mind-altering drug experiments, and was that the common thread that joined these people together?
Loran Hall was involved in the war against Castro. After the assassination, J. Edgar Hoover used his name to dispel claims Oswald seemed to be in two places at once, a critical open item the FBI had to explain if Oswald was the lone assassin. Prior to that, Hall had served in the Army in Germany from 1947 to 1952, followed by several difficult years in Wichita, Kansas, including a broken marriage. In 1957 he suffered a mental breakdown and spent six months in a VA hospital. Then in March 1959, after castro came to power, he went straight to Cuba without warning to train troops for a planned Cuban invasion of Nicaragua. However, the Cubans arrested Hall on suspicion of being an American agent, and three months later, he was released and returned to the US. But while he was incarcerated, he served time with Mafia boss Santo Trafficante.
In June 1963, the FBI investigated Thomas Eli Davis because of the attempted invasion of Haiti he was putting together. They visited the Lafayette Clinic and met with Dr. Elliot D. Luby, who carried out extensive experiments with LSD. Luby was connected to Dr. Louis West. In addition, West associate, CIA psychologist John Gittinger, admitted during a 1980 legal deposition that he was also involved in hypnosis experimentation in Mexico City, where Oswald traveled on at least two occasions. Hypnosis was something David Ferrie dabbled in, as did Ronald Dante, a hypnotist, stage magician and frequent visitor to Mexico City. Dante was an associate of June Cobb. In the second half of 1963, the CIA transferred Cobb to Mexico City with the cryptonym LICOOKY-1. She became a CIA asset for the Mexico City station, reporting to David Atlee Phillips, an important assassination figure. And at the time, Cobb’s good friend Warren Broglie was conveniently managing the Hotel Luma in Mexico City, where Oswald was said to have visited.
It is clear that various characters connected to Norman, Oklahoma, had extended hospital stays, some in mental institutions. They all seemed to be supporters of Fidel Castro, which included Oswald, June Cobb, Thomas Davis, and Loran Hall, even though the evidence strongly suggests they opposed Castro. Is it too far-fetched, or was there a CIA mind-control program in existence at that time that had for many years treated people who would be connected to the JFK assassination, either directly or indirectly? The answer is yes, and the above only scratches the surface of the iceberg. To learn more, please check out my books: It Did Not Start With JFK: The Decades of Events That Led to the Assassination of John F. Kennedy.

2023.01.29 10:01 Ok-Assumption7644 Clarividente o Medium ?

Una persona muy amable me decía por privado que soy un clarividente y no un médium. Que los médiums tienen fama de farsantes.
La verdad es que tiene razón. Hay muchos farsantes, si. Pero, no soy un clarividente... soy un intermediario. Pero es como todo, hay estafadores y farsantes en todos lados.
Ser médium es controversial hoy en día por esa cuestión. Pero no vengo a estafar a nadie y solo muestro cosas serias que pueden ser verificadas con un poco de paciencia. Presento evidencia real. Que esta comprobada.
Muestro que un sueño nos adelanta ciertas cosas. Lo anoto, lo publico y es de acceso público. Entonces pasa a tener fecha y hora cierta que le proporcionan los servidores. En especial, Twitter, sin opción de editar.
No se puede crear un fraude. Y los eventos que se ven en los sueños, luego se dan en la realidad. Muchos alegan que es una cuestión de estadística y probabilidad. Pasa que no es tan simple. No se trata de decir, "va a chocar un auto, 2 muertos". Muchos accidentes pasan a diario.
Se es mas especifico. Por ejemplo, meterse en un tanque lleno de agua, ponerle un traje a una joven. Hablar de un león y una chita. Recibir visitas en casa de una joven que salió de bailar, junto a su perro y pedirte de quedarse a dormir en tu casa. El león y la chita atacaban a mi perro. Ella vino junto con el suyo. Tenes un perro de la soga, en los sueños significa ser buscada. Estar en un hotel con una joven y enfrentarse con 2 mexicanos.
Y muchos otros datos, cada uno en diferentes sueños.
Entonces, luego se da con el caso. Era una joven mexicana. Que desapareció un día 10 a la mañana. Salió junto con amigas a una fiesta el día 9. Esa madrugada desapareció.
Era de un lugar llamado Nuevo León. Hubo un personaje al que denominaban como el Jaguar. Y apareció dentro de una cisterna. Que es un tanque de agua puesto debajo del piso.
La chita, el jaguar y el leopardo, digamos que están mas emparentados que con el león. Son muy similares, cambian las manchitas y otras cosas. Pero, son muy similares. A mi me nació decir Chita... por que me es mas familiar.
Eso se llama información o datos inequívocos. En su conjunto, es imposible no ubicar a la persona o al caso que se hizo de conocimiento publico y mediático.
Todo, antes de que aparezca el caso en los medios. Incluso, antes de que esta joven desaparezca.
No existe estadística y probabilidad que alcancen. Y no es solo un caso, sino muchos. Por eso decimos que no es un caso de clarividencia. Es un caso de intermediarios a través de los sueños. Alguien se contacta, usa los sueños como medio y valida la conexión mostrando cosas que van a pasar.
Ahora estoy próximo a una segunda etapa o fase, donde quiero intentar guiar los sueños con una persona susurrándome al oído. Ver a donde puedo llegar y a quien puedo contactar. Como los ángeles guías.
Veremos si nos da financiamiento la fundación del señor Bigelow.

2023.01.28 15:22 Taj_Lyf Destination Wedding Nightmare

I’m so hurt, crushed, distraught & can’t stop crying exactly two weeks TWO WEEKS before my wedding because my wedding venue for a destination wedding (which is also where my entire bridal party was set to stay for the week) is trying to pull the plug on my wedding and rental accommodations for no apparent reason.
In May 2022 I visited St Croix USVI to scout wedding venues for a Feb 2023 wedding date. I located a rental vacation villa on VRBO that advertised full service wedding planning. I met in person with them discussed my plans. And based on the meeting, I booked the reservation through VRBO for 14 of us. I paid for the rental in full (14k) to get that out of the way so I could focus on wedding planning.
Between August 2022 & December 2022 I repeatedly asked via email, text & phone calls with them for some basic planning details including menu, decorative details & venue contract w/overall cost. I was constantly give excuses that seemed plausible. For example in Aug they said they fired the chef I met in May so menu planning was on hold until they hired a new chef. In September they said they needed confirmed headcount before providing cost estimate. After providing my confirmed headcount in October I again requested itemized cost estimate & contract. They promised to send but I never received anything.
In November I requested a planning meeting. They were all agreeable & apologetic for not getting me the info. They introduced their new chef who promised to get me a menu. They suggested a budget on catering of $80pp. I thought we were finally on track.
By December I had not heard back from the chef or venue so I began securing other needed vendors such as MUA, Photographer, Officiant & Day of Coordinator. On 12/19 I asked for another planning meeting where I expressed my concern of running out of planning time. I also let them know I secured the vendors mentioned above. I let them know I hadn’t heard from the chef since Nov.
Then in January exactly 30 days from my wedding date I pull up with them again asking for confirmed costs, planning details & guest logistics.
This is when things went left… the owner began to say irrational things like “you need to make sure your wedding guests don’t climb on the roof & jump in the pool”. He also began to change his tune on wedding planning stating that I told them my Day of Coordinator was now the full service planner and that she should provide me with the details I had been asking them for for months.
Then exactly 2 weeks before my wedding date (2/3/23) the owner rudely tells me we have to have a “candid” discussion about my wedding. He then immediately goes into insulting me, belittling me & and just being an overall jerk. Telling me I’m trying to have a “Ritz Carlton wedding on an Applebees budget”. (BTW: My allotted budget for the wedding was 30k for 50 people.) He made claims that I planned on “not tipping the staff & bar staff”. He said I should take my budget to “Alabama where I could get the kind of wedding I could afford” (I’m from VA). He cursed at me and hung up twice.
When I texted him afterwards to say had I known I would be in tears & this would be my experience 2 weeks before my wedding I would’ve selected another venue…. His response was “In hindsight we wish you had”
Now I’m in a position where clearly no wedding plans were ever made & he is also threatening to cancel my vacation rental accommodations with NO refund of my already paid $14k.
Friends & Family have booked flights rented hotels. I’m scrambling to get an alternate venue. And I haven’t stopped crying in a week.
I just don’t understand how or why they are doing this to us? 😢

The room's all clear. Honestly, I'm not surprised, your fans are always all over you. I bet they don't even understand the damage they are doing to your image. Even if it's just those fan edits or the alarming amount of theories.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Well, I decided to keep up with that stuff ever since you showed me. If I'm more aware of what's going on I know what to expect, but now it’s obvious that I’ve been trying to keep my distance. At least one of us has to think before acting. My job is to protect you. And you're making it a lot harder than it needs to be by enabling your fans.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Well then, I don't think either of us is handling this better if the gossip magazines have caught on. Next thing you know your manager will confront you and… well I don’t know what will happen after that.
(pause)
I just… hate this. I want to go on dates in public with you, I want to be able to spend more time with you without thinking about schedules, hell I just want to be able to walk with you in a park without fear of you getting hurt. It's selfish, I know. I want to have you all to myself yet make sure you never get hurt again. Everything comes down to me wanting to be with you through everything, but it's not possible.

[...]

BODYGUARD
You need to care about what your manager thinks. You've got such a high platform, why would you even think about sabotaging it?

[...]

BODYGUARD
No, that's enough. Stop putting your feelings first and think about your future.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Our future together should not be more important. Think rationally for once. We are supposed to be professional. I've always tried to be the responsible one but I slipped up. I should have been better about it. I messed up because of my stupid hope for something more than being your guard. Maybe I should have kept my feelings for you to myself!

Long silence.

BODYGUARD
I… I'm sorry. I've been thinking about this for a long time. Is it even considered a long time if we only dated for a little over a month? The first week was fun, scrambling around and hoping not to get caught. You always make even the most stressful situations more easygoing. But we got into this without thinking ahead. It can't be this way forever.

[...]

BODYGUARD
What I mean to say is… what I mean to say… we need to… break up. It’s for the best.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Stop being so stubborn.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Just stop!
(pause)
I hate seeing you cry, and I wanted to make sure at least I wouldn't be the cause of it. I wish I could tell you that I want to break up. That I've fallen out of love with you or you've irritated me one too many times. Maybe then it would be easier for you to cut me off. But I can't because I do love you. You're irritating with your mischief and unrelenting hope, but you're my best friend. I said this before, I don't mind not being with you the way I want, as long as you're in my life.

He kisses them.

BODYGUARD
Goodbye.

(SFX. Door closing.)

TIME JUMP

EXT. CAFE PATIO- MIDDAY.
(SFX. Distant chatter.)

BODYGUARD
Oh, go right ahead. No one’s sitting there. It got pretty packed in there all of a sudden, didn’t it? It kind of ruins the whole peaceful cafe ambiance but I’m glad they have a patio out here- What are you doing here?!
(loud whisper)
What are you doing here? What do I have to do to get rid of you?!

[...]

BODYGUARD
Why am I not surprised? I was counting the days without one of your reckless antics and you couldn’t get beyond a week. But really? The cliche sunglasses and cap to hide from paparazzi?

[...]

BODYGUARD
Well, it’s bright out here. Technically I don’t even need to wear these since I’m not famous.
(bitter)
Oh yeah, I guess I am now because of your fans. So, what do you want?

[...]

BODYGUARD
Funny. I shouldn’t have said I wanted to be with you in public. A date in secret while in public is still secret dating, you know? And this doesn’t count by the way.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Because I said so. Come on, you think you can slip in here and call this a date? How did you even know I was here?

[...]

BODYGUARD
They would never. They didn’t. You’re telling me that my colleagues, who I’ve worked alongside for years ever since your debut, told you? Why?!

[...]

BODYGUARD
I… this feels like deja vu. They really… ship us?

[...]

BODYGUARD
No, stop telling me. I don’t want to know if they read the fanfics or any of that, stop! God, this is so embarrassing.

After a moment of silence, he slowly starts chuckling which grows into loud laughter.

BODYGUARD
You are such a handful. But, I’m glad for once. I guess part of me was hoping you’d be determined to get us back together, but I didn’t expect you to go this far. So, any other brilliant ideas?

[...]

BODYGUARD
Oh, really? Well, let’s hear it.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Huh?! You can’t be serious. You can’t just leave your contract on a whim.

[...]

BODYGUARD
I know, I know. It ends in a little over a week anyways. You've gone on long rants about the creative limitations and list of rules you insist on bending. And I know how much your fans want you to leave the company too. And you've made your hatred for it very apparent, even if you only give sentence comments. I mean it's obvious that your company uses you, like how they made you date that other- OH! Wait, that singer you pretended to date is also in the same company. Correct me if I'm wrong, but since your manager knew your contract was ending, they tried to get you even more popular with that dating drama in hopes that you'll stay?

[...]

BODYGUARD
I just never pieced it together before. But that's messed up, trying to convince you that your success is only because of them. Gosh, I don't know what to say to help. I'm sorry. How does the other singer feel about this?

[...]

BODYGUARD
It's good that you keep in contact with them and are able to talk about it.

[...]

BODYGUARD
I see. If their contract ends right after yours…

[...]

BODYGUARD
I know that mischievous look. Are you both going to announce leaving your company at the music awards? Don't tell me you're going to tell everyone that they set you two up!

[...]

BODYGUARD
Well, obviously your fans are nearly 100% on your side, but come on. I know this has been affecting you for a long time now but…

[...]

BODYGUARD
No, I think you should go with what you feel is right. Your manager has already confronted me about us. I told them we aren’t dating, but I can only imagine they either want to use it as an excuse to give you an even harder time or to monetize on the attention. But what about your career?

[...]

BODYGUARD
Wow. I mean, of course, any company would gladly take you in when given a chance. I’m just surprised at how quickly they reached out to you. Would the other singer join you?

[...]

BODYGUARD
That's good to hear. The both of you had to deal with the same awful situation after all.

[...]

BODYGUARD
(teasing)
Great, you're dragging me along too? Well, I guess it can't be helped. I guess I can manage sticking with you.
(normal)
But what if that new company you’re signing into finds out about us?

[...]

BODYGUARD
It's good to hear that they are flexible about your dating life, but we shouldn't take too much advantage of it. I think I can be discrete, do you think you can?

[...]

BODYGUARD
Well, I think it's safe to show the world we at least are best friends. And that's as much as they need to know. We can leave the details to the fanfictions.

The two kiss for a bit.

BODYGUARD
Did you miss me that much? I missed you too.

More kissing.

BODYGUARD
Well, I guess we can call this a date. I’m thankful for having someone like you in my life, going to this extent, caring about me as much as I care about you. Thank you. I love you so much.

TIME JUMP

INT. BACKSTAGE- AFTER MUSIC AWARDS.
(sfx. Distant cheers)

BODYGUARD
What a mic drop. You did amazing. Well, let's call it a night and go to yet another hotel.

[...]

BODYGUARD
Mad? I thought you would know me better by now. I can’t express my excitement out here. The sooner we get to the room the better. I am so proud of you. Come on already.

FADE OUT
Thank you for reading! (̿▨-▨¬˵)(˘ε˘˶๑ )
This was actually really tricky to write for it to make sense in legal terms and drama and all of that. It took way too long to write and I had to take a lot of breaks but it was worth it to make sure the two stayed together.
I loved writing their chemistry, one being the levelheaded responsible (but still dorky) one and the other being more easygoing and a bit impulsive (but with a method to their madness). Especially since they balance each other out and better one another. Writing their banter is so fun. The only idea I have for a part 3 is if the listener gets shot-....... *ferocious typing sounds*

2023.01.28 02:40 Neither_Bonus_8667 Chasing Rainbows Rescue/Mama Tot/Linzy

Update: It appears the videos posted by Linzy and the duet from Mama Tot have been taken down. The GFM donations have been cut off. Leaving this post to still spread awareness.
Recently, Linzy shared a video calling people to action to help Chasing Rainbows Rescue. This led to Mama Tot also posting about them. I do not want anyone to be misled so I thought I would share.
The cofoundecare director of Chasing Rainbows is a criminal that was convicted of theft by deception.
Google: CP-14-MD-0000561-2021
She stole rent money from tenants, including the elderly. She tried to make excuses that were crazy, including blaming the VA.
For more context google: Former hotel manager allegedly stole $11,000 in rent money: Lock Haven PD l
On top of all that, there are video recordings of lives of this woman threatening to bite horses as part of training amongst other abuse. The care of this “rescue” is subpar at best, horses are not given the proper basic care. Let alone the advanced care most of them need. They keep taking in horses while not being able to handle what they currently have.
I do not want anyone to give their hard earned money, especially in this economy, to a grifter. Not long ago they raised 25k to permanently secure the farm. Where did that money go? The money being raised now, will probably end up in the same place.
Please share this info as people are being fooled into thinking this rescue is something it’s not.
