2022.01.20 20:06 Jumpy_Possibility_70 Help with planning Thailand diving trip in Feb (under Test & Go)
Hi all, with Thailand reopening for Test & Go, I'm super excited to travel internationally for the first time in over two years. Hoping to spend some time diving the Andaman Sea. Please tell me if my plan below is feasible:
Day 1: quarantine & PCR test in Phuket Day 2-4: board a liveaboard from Phuket and return to Phuket Day 5: quarantine & PCR test in Phuket Day 6 onward: board another liveaboard, dive dive dive...
However, there's no direct flight from me to Phuket and I'll have to either transit in Bangkok or Singapore. Singapore isn't open to my passport. If I book everything on the same ticket, does the transit location matter? If I transit in Bangkok, can I still do my Day 1 quarantine and test in Phuket or must I spend a night in Bangkok then return to the airport to fly to Phuket? Do I book SHA hotels on pages like Agoda and crosscheck with the Thai gov's SHA list?
Much thanks for all help! Two years at home and my brain's completely forgotten how to plan travel...

2022.01.20 20:06 EvilVel I know Alina personally
I’m not going to talk about it anonymously, I've got no any relation to the TLC and Alina didn't ask me to do this post also so I think it's important for you to know who I am still
I’m Vel. I cowrote and produced music with Alina and we are very good friends as well so I know a lot of details of her life.
Please read very carefully of what I'm about to say coz every small detail is important in order to understand whole picture
First you need to know cultural context that been in Russia especially eight years ago around this topick. The n-word never had an offensive meaning in Russia because historically there was no slavery among black people here. There was no black people in general in Russia and Alina's predecessors most likely to be slaves themselves FYI. Few years back from Russia using the n-word seemed like just a part of a hip-hop/rnb culture and it's no surprise that it didn't even come to her mind that it could be somehow offensive so Alina didn't lie when she told she thought it meant fella or something. Alina trully enjoy hip-hop/rnb culture and as you probably noticed the n-word is used really often in music so it's no wonder that Alina thought it was okay especially when she was so young
Now let's talk about her posts:
Post with gender bender school pictures had a caption. Someone wrote here that she changed letters to evade instagram filters which is not true. She simply tried to imitate type of speech she heard in hip-hop/rnb music and this caption itself was a refference to a hip-hop/rnb culture. Yes she knew it's a sort of swear word but she did not knew it's full hateful and discriminative meaning. For russians it seemed like a slang word commonly used among gangsters we saw in films and music videos. Even now many russians don't understand why this word makes people so triggered in the US
Yes Alina deleted her post then said it was photoshoped first and I asked her about that. She told me that she got panicked and started denying because she's aware of what it means now and what consequences it can lead to. It was first thing that came to her mind. She told me she regret about that sudden unthoughtful move. And here's one very important detail: she only posted a picture without that caption in her stories. Original post from 2015 was screenshoted and then someone said it was fresh throwback post which is not completely true so someone tried to make her look worse on purpose.
Post from UAE was just a joke. It was not about muslims at all she just thought it's a funny caption for the picture and nothing else
Now about post of her crush on Hugh Grant where some people found racism towards asian people because of sad emojis - as a person who knows her for a few years and knows the way she speak I'm 100% sure this emojis was about something she said next in russian which meant like if you know someone who look like him please let me know. Sad emojis meant she wanted to have someone who look like Hough Grant and she was sad that she had noone around like that at the moment. I think everyone had celebrity crush at some point of life.
Now it's time to talk about her post where she used the n-word multiple times. She just translated description of the party she got invited to and laughed on stupidity of that. At this point I wanna remind you that the n-word doesn't have any offensive or hateful meaning in Russia and back in 2014 it was commonly heard in American music. I also wanna remind you that it's a rare to see a black person in Russia and it still considered somehow exotic and unusual here. Noone in their mind would make a party themed that look like as something they hate and noone who hate theme of a party would go there. I still think the party itself was rather an appretiation gesture because gangsta rap was very popular here. So there was no bad intentions or meanings in her post clearly. As I alredy told she thought it's a sort of a swear word and she did not know how bad and discriminative the actual meaning was back then and since she knew it as a swear word she apoligized in the end of that post
She wanted to give a public statement but due to some very particular reason she can't do it right now and it's not her own will
Also I'm aware that Alina dated POC's and she told me actually nice things about them. Racist wouldn't do anything like that.
She lived for a year in America that's true. She was a 17 years old girl who was so overwhelmed by new events new culture and language being away from her family and friends. She had to face so many problems back then. I can't say it was an easy year for her but she loved it being in America. She told me about that year a lot so I'm getting a little annoyed when she starts this topick again. Well you can't learn everything just by one year I guess
Alina speak English well but it doesn't mean she knows everything about American culture
The world is not just America guys please keep in mind that cultural context can be different in other countries. Also we don't study American history in schools here in Russia so it's understandable if people from Russia doesn't know much about problem of racism in the US so deeply like most of you do
Alina could have checked her social media for controversial posts but she didn't. And the reason for that is she didn't even thought she posted something racially offencive because she is not racist. Racist would clear social media before going to the show think about that.
And one more thing that bothers me:
I know what her DM's look like. Guys it's ugly. People mocking her on disability all the time and bullying her hard. That's a big stress for her so at some point she started blocking people massively. There are too much messages and she couldn't physically reply to everyone. Alina has no desire to reply on hateful messages where people wish her dead is one of kindest things among other bulls**t. I find it funny that most of hateful messages comes from white people actually.
Being bullied on physical condition is nothing better then racism.
All of her life she was treated like a sub human. She knows what it's like to be discriminated over what you can't change about yourself. Every day she have to prove herself and most of you probably can't imagine what it's like.
Bullying isn’t cool. Stop being an a**holes and give her a chance to explain herself too.

2022.01.20 20:06 muchtall How do you emulate a momentary button in HA (hold for on, release for off)
I've set up an "IR blaster" using the ESPHome remote transmitter functionality which works great for operating my TV when the kids run off with the remote. One problem I have though is that it would be nice to perform some of the standard remote functions that happen when you hold down a remote button. For example, when you hold down the "Volume Up" button, the IR code is repeated until you release the button. Currently I have to feverishly tap the volume button to get the desired effect.
How would I reproduce this sort of functionality in the Home Assistant dashboard? It would be nice to use the hold action on a standard button, but of course holding a button does nothing until you release it, and then it executes a specified action only once. I would like it to act similarly to a momentary button, where press and hold starts an automation that repeats the IR code, and releasing the button stops it.
Is there a way to do this? I could see this being a helpful function for other automations (like hold a button to adjust dimming of a light).
