2022.01.19 01:22 dirtytoiletbowl I need advice
I don’t think I have an eating disorder, but I’m not a doctor. I’m very self conscious about my weight and I have been for years. I have a fast metabolism and I’m like a rail, pretty skinny. I’ve noticed recently that I’ve been over eating to the point where I’m feeling a slight discomfort heading to bed at night. I eat to fill time, I eat to feel better. I’ve been counting my calories lately as well to make sure that I’m consuming at least 2,000 a day. Normally I’ll eat about 700-1000 at most. I don’t understand my patterns and I need some advice.

2022.01.19 01:22 dfghjgf565 I really need some advice
When I was 7, I started writing a journal. I wrote all the way through my teenage years. I was diagnosed with a serious mental illness when I was 10 years old, and was in and out of hospital.
There were some huge ups and downs, some I hardly remember. Some of the best and worst years of my life. I wrote everything down.
When I was around 15, I lost all hope that things were ever going to get better. The treatment had stopped working, and I wasn't getting enough support. In a desperate attempt to make things better, I threw all of my journals away. I thought I'd finally be able to move on and start a new life. It was an irrational, desperate act, one that I hardly remember.
Now I'm older, doing better, and it makes me feel so empty that I don't have them anymore. I know it's stupid to care about irrational objects, but it feels as though a part of me is missing forever. It makes me feel so empty. All of those years of my life lived for nothing. It feels as though I've lost my stability, a lot of ground beneath my feet, and I'm going to be feeling this way for the rest of my life. I don't remember enough to start the journals again. It was years ago when I found out what I'd done, and I still feel the same.
Please can someone tell me how to get rid of the pain and regret at having lost so many memories, and the one window I had into my younger self. I can't remember what was going through my head at that age, and I would do anything to gain a little insight, if anything just so that I could help other young people who have the same problems.
It keeps me up at night and hurts so much. Those journals were the most important thing in my life, the one source of consistency that I could rely on. Please help.
(Please be nice).

2022.01.19 01:22 tropicalpisces66 I regret transferring colleges
I transferred universities right before COVID hit, which meant my first year at my new school (as a junior) was entirely virtual. It was also close to my parents, so I lived at home for that whole year. That sucked on its own, and definitely contributes to part of my regret. But I transferred from a fairly big party school to a much more cerebral and pretentious university. I thought I would identify with the people more because I didn’t really find anyone I connected with at the big party school.
But turns out I just find everyone just as boring as they were at the first school, but in a more pretentious way rather than a partier way. I know I sound really obnoxious, but I think I just fall right in the middle of the crazy party kids and the 4.0 GPA, always in the library type kids. But I find myself wishing I had stayed at the party school cause then I could’ve at least had some fun. There are certain types of things I feel like you only get to experience (or are socially acceptable) in college, like themed parties, going on spring break and just generally doing random stupid stuff and goofing off. But everyone around me is a bit too serious for that, and whenever I see videos or pictures of people at other schools going crazy at a football game or a frat party or whatever I get so jealous, even though when I was at that type of thing in my freshman/sophomore year I was never that interested in it.
Now that I’m in the second half of my senior year, I still haven’t found anyone I’ve connected with and I feel like I’ve missed out on the quintessential college experience. While part of it was definitely due to COVID, I can’t help but wish I had spent more of the non-COVID times having more fun.

I thought of bringing my family to a nice dim sum restaurant but I’m not sure which one to go.
Budget is not much of a problem as long as it’s worth it.
Would like to see your recommendations!

2022.01.19 01:22 JustTooKrul What We Know About the MSFT / ATVI Deal So Far
As a finance-type, I have analyzed transactions and companies (well, their securities, but the difference isn't as relevant here) for years. This is a very large, transformative deal for a space / hobby that I really enjoy, so I got very curious and went down a rabbit hole. I then formatted that trip down the rabbit hole, added links, and decided to post it.
What do we know so far?
So far, not much.
- Microsoft has posted a press release describing the transaction and presentation for its' investors describing the transaction in qualitative terms and outlining the strategic rationale for the transaction. That presentation is available on EDGAR here. There is also a separate statement made on the Xbox website here.
- We know the price that Microsoft is paying for Activision-Blizzard: $95.00 per share. We also know what value that ascribes to the entire company--approximately $68.7 billion. (Note that there is a let of technical work that goes into bridging the $95.00 to the $68.7 billion, including nuances around exactly how many shares Microsoft is buying for the announced $95, how much debt Activision-Blizzard has and the terms of that debt, how much cash Activision-Blizzard has, how employee options and incentive plans are treated, and other nuances. That is to say the total value will very likely not scale linearly with the price Microsoft is paying per share.)
Both companies made a presentation, using the slides above, to Wall Street research analysts and investors at 9am ET today, and anyone can review the presentation and hear a recording of that call for a period of time--details are in the press release.
Both companies have even posted a transcript of the presentation on their respective investor relations sites
--note that they did not take questions from analysts, so we don't learn very much beyond what one can glean from the slides themselves.
I have some additional information about both companies' disclosure requirements and some additional information we can expect to be disclosed below, but I figured I would keep this concise and "just the facts" for now. My thoughts.
Okay, all the boring stuff out of the way (above and
below), let's get to the fun part... Reading the tea leaves (what could cynically be called, speculation!). Every aspect of the public relations side of announcing a merger is carefully scripted, so we can learn a lot from what things are said (and not said), how things are said, and when things are said
There is a lot of strategy and planning that goes into how a merger is announced and "rolled out" to the public, to investors, to employees, and to other stakeholders. And we get to learn about the exact timeline here because it's a public company being acquired and their shareholders have to vote--a lot has to be disclosed to them in order for them to be able to completely assess the merger and vote on it. (Note that ZeniMax Media, the owners of Bathesda, were not public and that acquisition was so small compared to Microsoft at $8 billion vs. Microsoft's market cap of over $2.2 trillion that Microsoft had to disclose very little and ZeniMax didn't have any public disclosure obligations, so we know very little about the specifics of that transaction.)
With this in mind, I think it is definitely not a coincidence
that Microsoft announced its Board initiated a review of "sexual harassment and gender discrimination policies" a mere five days before announcing this transaction. Microsoft would want a response when people asked about Activision-Blizzard's cultural and legal problems and they had the lead time to construct a response and even show some action. Deals like this typically take weeks, if not months, to negotiate so that review and its announcement would likely have been choreographed far in advance. Interestingly, the memo that announced the Board review was made available on Microsoft's website as a Word document, so you can see it was authored by Microsoft's President and Chief Legal Officer (and edited by a member of their investor relations team). It's not surprising those are the people involved, but it helps gives investors confidence if well-known leaders are involved in an initiative meant to address a specific risk of the deal.
As more information is announced, keep in mind that every announcement has a purpose and is packaged in a specific way. This deal, like most deals between large companies, is subject to review by regulators.
The direct quotation is that the transaction is subject to "completion of regulatory review" (the language from the press release). This means that regulators will have to review the transaction for a number of factors, but one of the most important--if not the most important
factor--will be anti-trust review. This is a complex area of the law, but the main idea is that regulators review transactions to see if they decrease competition to the point where they hurt the consumer or hurt competitiveness of markets and, if they believe they have a legal basis to do so, can try to block the transaction. (Note that I specifically say try
since regulators can oppose a transaction, but a company then gets to defend the merits of transaction and make their case in court.)
As gamers, this is probably where we all have the most questions. The biggest question is probably about what this means for Sony's PlayStation and PlayStation's access to Activision-Blizzard's titles on its console? But, there are other issues here as well--in theory, Microsoft could take it's market share in games to crush competing technologies in any number of areas (e.g. app stores and other "storefronts", hardware platforms of competitors to Microsoft's large business--like Google and Amazon, etc.).
But, let's stick with consoles and platforms for a second. Microsoft is already positioning the merger and making statements that likely have these regulatory reviews in mind. In the statement made on the Xbox website
there is an interesting phrase that does not
appear in the press release put out by Microsoft:
"Activision Blizzard games are enjoyed on a variety of platforms and we plan to continue to support those communities moving forward."
It is interesting that Microsoft went out of its way to say that it "plans" to support "those communities" going forward. This is a completely meaningless statement that makes no commitments (it's only a plan
and plans change) and doesn't even say anything meaningful--it just says they aren't planning
on pulling the plug on existing
"communities" while saying nothing about future titles, bringing games to these same platforms going forward, etc.
Also, in the press release announcing the transaction (not the Xbox statement) Microsoft goes out of its way to say it will be the third
largest "gaming company" by revenue after Tencent and Sony. The fact they use Sony is important, since that's going to be one big area of review for regulators (how does this impact consoles and the "gaming market" overall, of which Sony is a big part). But the statistic is impossible to verify in any meaningful way given Microsoft doesn't disclose the revenue from its gaming business. But, they talk about gaming companies--so it can't be ruled out that they are being very manipulative in how they back back this statement up.
In the last reported quarter, Tencent reported ~$7 billion in revenue from gaming (~45 billion RMB) and Sony reported ~5.6 billion in revenue from gaming (~645.4 billion Yen), or ~$28 billion and $22.5 billion annualized (each quarter is three months, so annualizing is just multiplying by four). But Tencent derives ~75% of its gaming revenue from China (its domestic market) and Sony has almost no mobile presence in the mobile gaming space (to my knowledge). So, when it comes to the markets in which Microsoft will actually be competing--largely non-China and largely non-mobile (Activision-Blizzard derives ~70% of their revenue from Activision and Blizzard vs. ~30% from King)--they could easily be leapfrogging into a dominant market position through this acquisition.
But the nuances and technical details aside, the fact that Microsoft goes out of its way to talk about plans
to continue to support existing communities
on multiple platforms and position itself as only being in third place
shows that it is mindful of the scrutiny this transaction will receive. The market has serious doubts about this deal.
And the market is looking through the jargon and positioning by Microsoft, Sony shares were down materially today and Activision-Blizzard closed at $82.31 today, a ~14% discount to the cash price
being offered by Microsoft. The discount in Activision-Blizzard's stock price vs. what Microsoft is offering reflects investors' significant doubts that the acquisition actually closes--with the most material risk being regulatory approval, in my estimation. The most naive way to estimate the probability investors are giving to the deal closing would be to take the price right before the deal was announced and the offer price, and see what probability gives you a weighted average equal to the current price (but that ignores critical factors like timing of the deal closing, what investors think the price of Activision-Blizzard shares will actually be if the company remains independent, and other more nuanced outcomes like a price adjustment or re-negotiation of the deal if Microsoft is forced to sell parts of Activision-Blizzard or its own business as a condition to closing the transaction.) Spoiler alert, but the probability that a deal doesn't close calculated by the overly-simple method is over 35%--but, again, that ignores a number of important factors and likely overstates the probability. What information is or will be made available?
Since both Microsoft and Activision-Blizzard (MSFT and ATVI are their stock symbols, respectively) are both public companies we will get to know a lot about this transaction through the disclosure each company makes to their shareholders (required by virtue of being a public company), to regulators (required by virtue of being a public company), and to the Wall Street analysts that publish "equity research" on their respective stocks (research thay many investors, including large institutions, rely on).
The main avenue for this disclosure will be through both companies' SEC (Securities and Exchange Commission) filings and the completely free, public source of this information is EDGAR (the Electronic Data Gathering, Analysis, and Retrieval system).
Microsoft's SEC filings: https://www.sec.gov/edgabrowse/?CIK=789019&owner=exclude
Activision-Blizzard's SEC filings: https://www.sec.gov/edgabrowse/?CIK=718877&owner=exclude
Also, both companies maintain an "Investor Relations" page for sharing information with their shareholders and other investors. They can post information here as well, but anything material (a word that has a specific meaning bin securities law) must be shared publicly via EDGAR to ensure all shareholders have a single place they can go to find information presented in a way that is compliant with the SEC's guidelines.
Microsoft's Investor Relations page: https://www.microsoft.com/en-us/Investor
Activision-Blizzard's Investor Relations page: https://investor.activisionblizzard.com What still needs to be disclosed? The Merger Agreement
This merger is governed by a legal document, a legal contract between the two companies called a merger agreement (or some similar name), and the specific terms of that agreement are material to investors. This agreement will need to be filed publicly (perhaps not by Microsoft, given it's size, but definitely by Activision-Blizzard) and I would expect that to happen shortly--perhaps as soon as today. (There is a timing requirement for filing anything material, and the exact requirement depends on a number of factors. This is generally covered under Regulation FD and the SEC guidelines for notification of materials information.)
This agreement will cover a lot of details that aren't known to the public yet and should give specifics for things like the treatment of any liabilities related to Activision-Blizzard's ongoing legal issues, post-acquisition management of Activision-Blizzard (e.g. the fate of Bobby Kotick), and could even delve into questions like how both companies will be required to deal with regulatory issues with the acquisition. Proxy Materials for a Shareholder Vote
Another item that will be disclosed will be a proxy or a document disclosing all relevant details to Activision-Blizzard shareholders about the merger, how it impacts them, their rights as shareholders, etc. This is necessary because a sale of the company to Microsoft will require a shareholder vote. The rules around this are complex, but Activision-Blizzard has already classified it's announcement and press release from this morning as "additional definitive proxy solicitation materials" on EDGAR (and separately filed that here
This document will include support for the fairness of the price shareholders are receiving (usually supported by a valuation done by an investment bank), a summary of the terms of the merger, common questions and answers, a statement from management, disclosure of the actual agreement, and a "background of the merger" section that will include the general timeline for how the merger came together. The "background of the merger" section will typically include details about which company approached the other, a timeline of the negotiations (including anonymized details about other companies who may have bid on Activision-Blizzard), details about the how the actions taken by the Board and management during the negotiation process, and other information that describes how the transaction came together and was negotiated.
