Anyway to make $20 a day online consistently?
  • If she's native or fluent in English, Cambly is a good choice for teaching online. The pay isn't that good but it's something, $10.20 an hour of talk time, or $12 for group classes (which are actually easier). Seems like they've had a lot of applicants recently but they are still accepting people, it may just take a while.

    My referral link: https://www.cambly.com/invite/ADAM3261?st=060524&sc=4 Generic link: https://www.cambly.com/tutor/signup?lang=en

    She can reach out to me if she wants some help with getting started teaching online, I've been doing it for years.

  • Need noise cancelling headphones recommendations
  • Have you tried the Bose ones mentioned in this thread, or Apple's crazy expensive ones?

    Yeah, if I lived somewhere where it went under 20 degrees celsius I can see the appeal. It has been 40+ lately which has made using them pretty horrid, so I've stuck to earplugs when cycling instead.

  • Need noise cancelling headphones recommendations
  • I told them as much, and they just said tough shit, essentially. The quality of the voice is also piss poor; why have 'premium' headphones yet you have such low quality (and pointless) sounds? The beeping is also harsh on my ears.

    I turned off the touch features as I kept pressing them unintentionally. I won't get the XM5s (or 6, whatever comes next), least of all as they stopped them from being folded up, strangely.

    I also turned off the talk-to-speak thing as I just don't need it. If I want to talk, I'll pause my music or take them off. The 'smart' features are really not that clever nor useful. I don't want my music to pause just because I'm wiping sweating off one of the ears.

  • Need noise cancelling headphones recommendations
  • So, just to ignore your budget, I have the Sony XM4 headphones (over ear), and... they are okay. In the heat, they get very sweaty, and there are annoying sounds you can't turn off (on/off beep, and a voice which tells you when it has connected). The noise cancellation is good for constant noises but not sudden ones. Overall, I wouldn't recommend/buy them again, as they are just fine.

    I have tried some in ear ones from Xiaomi (not sure which exactly) which I bought for my partner, and they are, in my limited experience, just fine too, especially for the price (<$50). I don't know about any long-term idiosyncrasies though, so take that with a pinch of salt. These ones look a bit better: Redmi Buds 5 Pro. https://www.amazon.co.uk/Xiaomi-Redmi-Buds-Black-BHR7660GL/dp/B0CQKHK626/

    Any recommendations of an online ASD/ADHD psychiatrist/counsellor?

    The place I want to do an online session with is not so responsive online and mainly (or solely?) does in-person visits, in a different country.

    Looking for a recommendation for ASD/ADHD support, someone who is knowledgeable about meds (I already have mine), side effects, long-term usage, etc.

    Thanks.

    Which software is best for making a video with presentation?

    I am trying to do short presentations (3-5 slides) and would like my video (MacBook Air M2, if that's of help) in the corner, explaining what's on screen at the same time. The only audio would be from my headset or computer microphone.

    Google Slides used to have the feature but I can't find it anymore. The easier the better (so recording once rather than recording the video, then overlaying it on the slideshow would be better).

    Thanks!

    Changed meds, now getting irrationally angry on downtime

    I was initially given Ritalin (10mg pills) to try out; I cut them into four pieces each and spread it over the next month and a half. It worked well, allowed me to work, and felt 'smooth'.

    I ran out, found that they are expensive here (I was diagnosed and prescribed a week of pills - 14 - initially in Taiwan), and went to Thailand (neighbouring country) to get more. Turns out the place I went to only had Rubifen, a generic variant. It was about the same as I paid for Ritalin so I thought why not, and got enough to get me through the next year.

    Fast forward a month and a half... when I am on my 'off' days (Sat &amp; Sun, when I don't need to work or study), I am now reacting to things pretty badly. I snapped at my partner very easily, I almost put a window through because I knocked a bottle over, and generally had a miserable weekend. With Rubifen, I feel fine, able to complete tasks, work and whatnot. Without it I'm not sure I should be around other people. Is this normal? Will it level off or should I go and get something else instead?
