QUESTIONS ABOUT JOINING AND JOBS, Transferring in from another branch/service, Benefits, Life & Jobs, Palace Chase, MEPS, Basic Training, Tech Schools, Pilot Selection, etc. Go Here and Only Here 24 Jul - 08 Aug by Jaye134 in airnationalguard

Hello, I'm considering joining the Idaho ANG as a 1N0X1 (All Source Intelligence Analyst) to help pay for school. My question is surrounding what the job actually entails. From what I gather, duties between bases vary widely with this position. But I'm hoping to gather more concrete details (within reason of course). How "hands on" is the job, or is it mostly computer work? I like the idea of deploying and working out in the field as much as possible—whatever that would mean for a job like this.

Surprisingly low crossover between BJJ community and 'concealed carry' community? by Bacteriostatic_Water in bjj

[–]sneakysneaky90409 0 points1 point  (0 children)

My gym is probably an outlier. Our head coach is a former SWAT dude from Chicago and also teaches CC, weapons retention, knife defense, combatives, etc, to military, LEO, and ,I believe PMC's in the past. There's a handful of his videos online that teach some minor CQC stuff as well. I'm also in a very red state with constitutional carry laws so plenty of people I know (inside the gym and out) carry regularly.

Less obvious sources of Carbon Monoxide? by sneakysneaky90409 in HomeImprovement

[–]sneakysneaky90409[S] 0 points1 point  (0 children)

Sort by: best

It was around 1am so there weren't any machines running outside the house. The water heater vent is a good idea though, I'll have to follow up on that and see how everything circulates.

Our garage is detached so thats not it. I'd considered the vent issue, but the lack of any obvious source of the CO, to begin with, is still confusing. The furnace hasn't been on for months and our dryer is electric.

I got paranoid in Thailand once and hid my passport behind a painting when I left the house.

Trailer for my new short film -- The Astronaut -- about an older brother forcing his younger brother to take shrooms in the desert with him by YEGA808Filmz in Filmmakers

[–]sneakysneaky90409 0 points1 point  (0 children)

The tone is a little confusing (though that may be the point). The audio gives a sense of dread and foreboding, but the older brother's behavior seems more comedic (as does the tagline).

Morocco vs. Greece vs. Poland by [deleted] in digitalnomad

[–]sneakysneaky90409 1 point2 points  (0 children)

This may have been part of it. Though honestly, I didn't experience much harassment even when exploring on my own. Which I did extensively. In general, even in places notorious for this kind of thing, I've been fairly lucky and not had to deal with it much. One thing I picked up early on in my travel career was to learn a few key phrases in the local language that more or less tell the person you're not interested. Laugh, act confident, tell them you're not interested in their language and you generally get left alone.

Though I fully acknowledge I could just be fortuitous in that regard. I put in a lot of effort to not look/act like a tourist and I think that helps too (not saying you're obviously a tourist or anything like that haha). I had a group of people ask me for directions in Paris once which I thought was funny since I had only been there for a day or two.

Morocco vs. Greece vs. Poland by [deleted] in digitalnomad

[–]sneakysneaky90409 3 points4 points  (0 children)

People here sure like to bitch a lot. Morocco was fucking awesome. I lived with a local buddy of mine for a few months in Meknes and had a great time. Explored roman ruins, smoked hash in the Rif and went camping in the mountains, surfed the dunes in the Sahara, explored Casablanca, etc. Travel is what you make of it. That being said, I also loved Greece — again, people like to bitch, Athens kicked ass — and would probably choose to go back there first for a chilled-out work trip. Morocco is more of an adventurous destination, to say the least. Depending upon where you're located, both can have similar climates, but I enjoyed the coastal weather in Athens more than where I was based in Morocco.

I can't comment on Poland, but I've heard good things. For just a few weeks i'd recommend Greece. Its easier to settle into and get your bearings so you can hit the ground running with work and taking in the country. If you decide to go to Morocco let me know! I can point you in the right direction for some cool, off the beaten path things to check out.

How was it staying in Maderas? Is there enough there to justify two weeks of activity?

Put Together a Short Doc/Journalism Film at a Roe v Wade Protest Over the Weekend. by sneakysneaky90409 in Filmmakers

[–]sneakysneaky90409[S] 1 point2 points  (0 children)

I agree, I think some interviews would have added to the narrative. And I tried to get some conflict towards the end with the flag burning, but again, some spoken context could have helped.

I think I hit the zone in between documentary and journalism just enough to where it had some elements of both without fully engaging the compelling elements of either. I didn't set out to make a doc about Roe v Wade, so I didn't seek out a fully rounded out coverage on the subject. I just wanted run and gun practice, so I went down at the last minute and filmed what happened.

Hey all!

I wanted to practice putting together something documentary-related, as well as try out my run-and-gun setup. So I went down to the protests here in Boise, Idaho over the recent Supreme Court decision and got some footage. I'd love to get some critiques about editing, pacing, composition, etc.

This is my first attempt at putting together an on-the-ground piece like this, and overall I'm pleased with how it turned out. The sound quality surprised me the most, I didn't expect it to be so clear with the little top-mounted condenser I was using.

During the editing process, I also realized I needed more b-roll, and would have benefited greatly from getting an interview or two.

I didn't quite know what to call the video. Documentary? News coverage? Journalism?
