Adelaide booze-fuelled problems ‘scaring’ tourists who need help walking to CBD hotels Alcohol sale bans extended

2023.06.10 10:04 malcolm58 Adelaide booze-fuelled problems ‘scaring’ tourists who need help walking to CBD hotels Alcohol sale bans extended

Hospitality staff are being forced to escort frightened tourists or visitors back to CBD hotels as the state’s liquor watchdog extends takeaway alcohol sale restrictions until the festive season. Authorities are battling alcohol-fuelled violence and anti-social behaviour blighting Adelaide’s most popular areas amid reports harassment and petty CBD street crime is still a “big problem”.
Police and agency officials have now been warned that frightened tourists, and city visitors, have sought help from bar and restaurant staff to walk back to their hotels. Management of major CBD hotels have relayed concerns about guests being left scared on “dangerous” city streets – especially at night – while some tourists are then outlining their fears on social media.
Liquor and Gambling Commissioner, Dini Soulio, reimposed a grog crackdown on bottle shops and licensed venues – first launched for a month at Easter – for six weeks until Tuesday. But acting on police advice, Mr Soulio has ordered restrictions on takeaway alcohol sales now be enforced until at least late November as authorities assess its effect on general city safety. Restrictions, which are similar to those imposed in Port Augusta and Whyalla, limited the sale of various takeaway liquor.
A special state government safety body, which endorsed the ban extension, last week heard how city anti-social behaviour was still a “big problem”, particularly around the Adelaide Railway Station on North Tce. Senior officers told the Safety and Wellbeing Taskforce that numerous calls were “needing police attention” despite early results showing restrictions maybe working. Police, who have boosted patrols to troubled hot spots through Operation Paragon, and bureaucrats have further heard how security guards at a popular city pub were assaulted in consecutive days in the past fortnight.
Reported problems involve indigenous groups, record levels of homeless people suffering through the cost of living crisis, significant mental health issues and drunken revellers. Politicians and staff working late at Parliament House have been warned to leave in pairs and to avoid long waits for buses amid violent incidents, including assaults.

Anne Boonchuy: Are you froging kidding me?! Pulling a prank like that in my lobby? On a Coven Head of all the guests you had to choose?!
T.J Detweiler: Come on Anne? It was a good prank.
Anne Boonchuy: Really especially when it makes me and my parents’ hotel look bad! Man if your parents heard about this they would be just as mad as I am.
Ellie Detweiler (walks in): Not by a long shot, all T.J was doing is being a boy, I mean, ever heard the phrase, “boys will be boys”.
Anne Boonchuy: Really what about “what’s good for businesses”.
Ellie Detweiler: Come on Anne, so T.J made a mistake, I mean a talking to would have suffice but going Tony Soprano on him is a little excessive. just let it slide.
T.J Detweiler: Please. I mean I just made some friends here.
Anne Boonchuy: Alright fine I’ll let it slide.
[T.J Detweiler eyes at the candy]
Anne Boonchuy: Forget the froging jelly beans, go!
[T.J Detweiler walks off and Anne Boonchuy picks up all the jelly bean jars that fell on the floor and hands WIllow Park a cash stack
Anne Boonchuy: Keep the change and you saw and heard nothing.
Willow Park: Lips are sealed.

2023.06.10 09:58 DSH2220 Just back !

We're just back after our first trip to DLP and also our first trip abroad with our 3 kiddies between 4 and 11.
I've read some comments here regard issues with heat exhaustion and wait times etc. Or issues where they needed to get buss or Ubers. Personally we had no issues... But for advice to anyone going, here's what we did and would do differently next time.
Bring kids juice bottles and refill at water stations (there's one on your right just after you enter Disneyland Park)
We got to do the popular attractions due to great advice I found online.... between 2pm-4pm and 6pm-8pm when people are getting lunch and dinner really worked a treat... Spiderman was only 15 minute wait, same with Ratatouille and pictures with Antman/The Wasp.
Bring comfortable shoes,sun cream, hat and sunglasses.
If you have your usn stroller bring it, it gave us that little buffer to keep the littlest one comfortable and out of the cranky tired zone. And it was of minimal inconvenience bringing it.
Bring a little bit of cash just incase, I did because I read card machines go down...didn't experience it but just in case I suppose.
We did not need passport/ID to verify our Park tickets at the gates.
The shuttle for Hotel B&B, Explorers Hotel etc picks up at Stop Q. Users collect from Five Guys area out by the exit near Disney Village (Walk past Disney Studios on your right and Village on your left and keep straight)
Get familiar with Disney App and Uber app etc if you aren't already familiar.
The shuttles away from the parks to Hotel B&B were unreliable time wise, they didn't go as frequently as advertised/suggested during our stay. Also they were consistently packed like sardine tins regardless of time.
Do not use the Taxi Drivers offering their "Great price taxi, only 5 minutes" they are quite intimidating and get close also at time, there's lots of them at night and nobody uses them, I read they charge crazy prices and get aggressive if you dont pay the crazy price.
My own opinion on my top 5 experiences of DLP.
  1. Ratatouille (was so surprised at how much fun this was)
  2. Avengers Flight Force
  3. Disney Fireworks
  4. Mickey and The Magician show
  5. Parades (Lunch znd evening) were brilliant.
All Other attractions were great, from Peter Pan flight to Pirates of Carribean were all brilliant.
Personally, I'd stay at a hotel in Disney grounds next time, shuttles ran every 5 to 10 minutes and only looked half empty leaving the parks, I was envious of this whilst standing in a cattle mart queue and having to fling my kiddies onto the shuttle for our hotel 🤣
TLDR: Based off our own first time visit with 3 young kids, what we did, enjoyed and would do differently.

2023.06.10 09:55 Longjumping_Plan3252 After many relationships, I’ve learned a few things that people need to hear.

This is a little word of advice for getting to know a partner before commitment ensues. I am a 34M and been in and out of the dating world. These are the few things I’ve learned in my experiences:
1) Always be patient and take your time to learn about someone. It doesn’t happen in 3 months, 6 months or even within a year. Confessing your love for someone 2 months in, love bombing and expressing that you cannot live without them will scare the living hell out of healthy personality types.
2) Expressing your traumas and fears are a part of learning someone. Always be under the understanding that not all people can handle other peoples traumas or personality traits, no matter how “right” or “amazing” the feelings are while being with this person.
3) In the first 6 months, don’t push to get to know their family, friends, kids or social network. Focus on them, focus on who they are with you, what they bring to the table and how you both can mesh each others needs in a relationship. Before this is solidified, nobody should be meeting anyone’s extended social network.
4) Learn how to communicate. Everyone communicates different and lots of people have different personality traits, which include, anxious, secure and avoidant attachment styles. In order for any relationship to succeed, both parties need to make sure they are comfortable with the way they are able to communicate their feelings, frustrations, issues and ideas to the person they want to be with.
5) Do not try to change yourself or another person to fit the relationship status quo. They may be gorgeous, intimate, attractive, but changing your likes and personality to suit someone else’s needs or wants will end up in disaster. Be yourself, let them fall in love with who you are not who they want you to be.
6) Do not use sex as a distraction from the issues that stem from a relationship. Sex can be amazing, you may feel this person is so attracted to you and can make you feel amazing. But, the second arguments or disagreements are put under the rug and sex is the main priority, it will blow up later on. Trust me.
7) Most people are aware of what manipulation and toxicity is. Do not be offended if someone removes themselves from your life if you are portraying toxic behaviors or emotionally abusive tactics.
8) Most breakups hurt the most because people fall into this cloud of “love” that because you love this person they would do nothing to hurt you even if they have expressed their issues with the relationship. The only way that gets fixed if you deal with the issue at hand. If one partners issues keep going undiscussed or stone walled, expect the other person to pull back due to the lack of respect when bringing up important things.
9) Nobody is responsible for your happiness but you! If you are recognizing unhealthy behaviors when starting relationships, step back, get some therapy and love yourself before you love someone else. You will thank me.
10) Do not stay in any relationship no matter how amazing if you feel unsafe or walking on constant eggshells no matter the reason. Life is to short to waste.
11) When one partner deicdes to call it quits, give each other the respect and time to heal. Even if you don't think you should be apart, time = clarity. DO NOT contact their friends, their family, or anyone on your partners side regarding your emotions or to get info on your ex. Its toxic, if you ever have a chance to get back together, this will truly destory it.
12) Understanding why the relationship broke down is important. It helps you understand who you are, what changes to make moving forward and being grateful that you had the chance to learn from all this. DO NOT beat yourself up, FORGIVE yourself for it, because you are 1 in 8 billion in terms of humans in this world. You’re leaning, just like everyone else. 8 billion other people are also going through the same roller coaster ride and learning who they are. Be kind to yourself, be patient, there is no perfect way of doing any of this. Relationships are meant to break down, its how we get back up that makes us who we are. Love yourself.
Hope this helps! Please add in any other points to help people out in this group.

2023.06.10 09:49 Potential-Pair-85 NO PASSPORT AFTER 2 WEEKS

- I applied for HPI visa on May 12th (the day I submitted my documents and biometrics at VFS)
- I received an approval email on Jun 4th but on the letter of confirmation from UKVI it writes May 25th. So it's likely that my passport was being processed 25th
- Today is Jun 10th, 2 weeks after the date on the approval email, still nothing. No email that my passport is dispatched, nothing.
- I have seen so many people on this subreddit submitting biometrics to VFS on the same day as I am and they have all received their passport 2 weeks ago or a week ago.
- I have rung UKVI and even they are confused as to why I still hvn't received my passport. I've gone up to VFS, they say they don't have my passport either.
- I have thrown so much money away extending my stay here in HK and it is honestly anxiety-inducing. Going into this next week, I am still unsure if my passport will be dispatched.
Anyone has any idea what I should do next? I am stuck and any help is much appreciated. Thank you so much

2023.06.10 09:31 Round_Shallot_2785 My Travel to Enchanting Darjeeling: A Blissful Retreat in the Hills

My Travel to Enchanting Darjeeling: A Blissful Retreat in the Hills
Nestled amidst the breath taking Eastern Himalayas, Darjeeling is a captivating hill station that has long held the hearts of travellers. Known for its panoramic views of snow-capped peaks, lush tea gardens, and colonial charm, Darjeeling offers a perfect escape from the hustle and bustle of city life. Recently, I had the opportunity to explore this enchanting destination and immerse myself in its natural beauty, cultural heritage, and warm hospitality. Join me as I take you through my journey of discovery in Darjeeling.
Where to Stay:
Choosing the right accommodation is crucial for an enjoyable trip, and Darjeeling offers a variety of options catering to different preferences and budgets. During my stay, I opted for a cosy homestay nestled in the heart of the town. This not only provided a comfortable and authentic experience but also allowed me to interact with the locals and gain insights into their way of life. There are numerous hotels, resorts, and guesthouses available, ranging from budget-friendly to luxurious, so you'll have no trouble finding the perfect place to stay.
Darjeeling is a treasure trove of stunning attractions that will leave you mesmerized. My first stop was Tiger Hill, renowned for its awe-inspiring sunrise views over the Kanchenjunga peak. The sight of the first rays of the sun painting the snow-capped mountains in shades of pink and gold was truly magical. Another must-visit place is the Padmaja Naidu Himalayan Zoological Park, home to endangered species like the snow leopard and red panda. I was captivated by the beauty and serenity of the Japanese Peace Pagoda, which offers panoramic views of the town and surrounding landscapes. The Darjeeling Himalayan Railway, a UNESCO World Heritage Site, is an iconic attraction that takes you on a nostalgic journey through tea gardens, loops, and tunnels. The Batasia Loop, Ghoom Monastery, and Happy Valley Tea Estate are other notable spots that should not be missed.
The Glory of Mall Market:
No visit to Darjeeling is complete without exploring the vibrant and bustling Mall Market. This iconic marketplace is a paradise for shopaholics and food enthusiasts alike. As I strolled through its colourful lanes, I discovered a myriad of shops selling local handicrafts, Tibetan artefacts, tea leaves, and traditional garments. The market also offers a wide range of eateries serving delectable local and international cuisine. Don't forget to savor a cup of authentic Darjeeling tea at one of the charming tea stalls while enjoying the panoramic view of the mountains.
Pocket-Friendly Restaurants:
Darjeeling boasts a plethora of restaurants that cater to various tastes and budgets. For those seeking pocket-friendly options without compromising on taste, here are a few recommendations:
Kunga Restaurant:
Located near Mall Market, Kunga Restaurant is known for its delicious Tibetan and Chinese cuisine. The momos and thukpa are a must-try, and the prices are reasonable.
This iconic bakery and restaurant offers a wide range of baked goods, sandwiches, and continental dishes. The cozy ambiance and pocket-friendly menu make it a popular choice among locals and tourists.
Sonam's Kitchen:
Tucked away in a quaint corner, Sonam's Kitchen is a hidden gem known for its hearty breakfast options, sandwiches, and homemade cakes. The budget-friendly prices and warm hospitality add to its charm.
Shangri-La Restaurant:

2023.06.10 09:31 CuriousPotato9_6 AITA for not wanting to visit my elder sister?

Story is going to be long, please cope with me! I, 27 (f) have an elder sister, lets call her Sarah (32 f). Sarah always wanted to go out with friends and make any excuse to not share some time with me. I understand this, because of our age gap. She would always make excuses to NOT go out even on a simple walk with me... She would call me when she need something from me - help her write her homework done, when she needs a 'canvas' to put makeup on and pretty much 'play as makeup artist'. Of course I was happy to help, that was my moment to share with her. I was a young child and have VERY sensitive skin until this very day. That didnt stop her for putting low-quality makeup on her baby sister. This was the time we spend together as siblings when she was at highschool.
When she went to Uni it wasnt way different - she went to another city. I call her on the phone, to just talk - shes busy or doesnt answer. At some point, I started calling her from our mom's phone, since she would answer her. The moment she finds out im the one calling - she would put the phone own, making any excusses. I was turning 16 at one point and instead of being with my friends, I wanted to be with her - that was my wish. So i visited her in her city for days - her sweet roommate knew how old i was turning and even had the care to buy me a pwush. My sister, on the other hand, mistook my age.. we had 2 fun days, going out, watching some videos at her place - her roomate went to her bf's place so i could have her bed.. i still keep the plush and adore her for what kind person she is...
Time goes by, my sister finds summer job at the seaside. I went to visit her for about 5 days, claiming i wanted to go to the beach, but i really wanted to spend some time with her, show her that ive grown up and have better topics to talk about with her... My mother, payed my sister to have me over, so she would pay the hotel room for giving me a bed in her room - we shared the same one... I think that was the only reason she agreed on having me there. I didnt want to be a burden, but I did made it clear that i wanted to be with her while sunbathing and that id even help her with the job so she would NOT have me as a burden. And so I did. Once, I saw her looking at a man in specific way - i knew at that moment she was all over him, but got all shy and didnt even talk to him more that 'is the job here done?'... So i decided to use my 'childish' charm and pretend to be dumb and stopped him while he was passing our table while asking things like 'oh, do you also work here?' what do you work?' and so on. We ended up being invited for a drink - turned out he was also shy to talk to her... I remember them thanking me for doing that, because they both talked as friends to each other since then. I was happy for her. They ended up being married and having two kids. Years go by, me and mostly my mom go visit her, to help with the childcare and housework. She didnt work, but raising a child even without a job is NOT an easy task. I had my own life - I was at Uni, I had a bf, he even once came along to babysit. Things were serious between us, we even lived together at one point. We broke up, went our ways, I had to focus on University more than ever, because as years passed, the material got harder to understand and learn. I had 2 subjects, the hardest ones that i didnt pass 2 times in a row... Not passing it for a 3d time could mean a dropuot for me or at least paying more taxes... Having to study even harder, homeworks going on and on, along with the projects - i had NO free time for myself... During this time, my mother was also working at my homecity. My sister was in a 3d destination, se we were all split up.
Sarah decided it was finally time for her to get her drivers licence. My mom couldnt drop out from work, so that left me to go and help with babysitting. So the only free month i had during the summer (because of the exams i didnt manage to pass 2 times in a row) I spend at her place, taking care of the 2 kids, one going to kindergarden, the other staying at home cuz its still a barely walking baby. I had to take care of ther animals as well - they lived at a village, that allows people to have animals, lucky for me chicks and a dog only. Had to clean everything up as fast as possible, the house, the outdoors, everything, we had to go for walks, had to clan up the baby and pretty much everything a mom does in her daily life.
Sarah was able to cook before she went to her instructor. She came back home, quite late, so usually i would be at her place, helping out her husband with his stuff and playing with the kids so they wouldnt be bored. I didnt mind any of that, because i went there to help her and love my nieces. It was summer, it was boiling hot - i had to keep in mind on what and WHEN to plan it during the day, since the kids are usually even more sensitive. So i did all and im happy with myself. My mom told me she could come and help, already, so i was happy, because i still needed to focus on my study...
I was at my sister's place for a whole month and when we said 'goodbye' to each other, she said 'well thats a short amount of time you coped with it, but i guess, good enough.' and I lookead at her, trying to understand what she just said. She realised i wasnt understanding her, so explained: 'you coped with my kids and house for a month, but thats nothing for me, i have to cope with all of that on daily basis'.
I've felt as a second hand human for quite some time, since people call me whenever they need me, but are almost NEVER there for me when i need them. And the few times they were, they would give me not just any advice, but usually a non-practical one... Since that moment I spent the next 5 YEARS not going to her place at all. I went this year once, they still live in not-wash-to-be-for-years rug. You can imagine the rest. Yes, she was a staymom for 10 years. Her kids are spoiled and have no knowedge, nor good behaviour.
She still hasnt bothered to wirte me a single 'how are you doing? are you doing okay latelly?'
Soon she needed help again, i was the only one who could manage it, because our parents couldnt and her husband DIDNT WANT TO get bothered with her stuff. So i did it yet again and i could get seriously fined if she hasnt done all the documents as she should have. But thats another topic on its own.
Im so sorry for making this post so long, I really tried to skip as much as possible... Thank you for taking up your time to read my story!

2023.06.10 09:18 jillkilledjack13 After first attempt, started looking for a job. Got one. Now what?

2023 was first attempt with full year of prep. Not scoring enough to clear GS cut off. After seeing the strange prelims paper I decided that I don't want to extend my gap year after masters (already spent 2 years unemployed). So did some job hunting and fortunately got a well paying job in a good organization. Now I definitely want to give 2 more attempts. Some people are saying that there was no need for me to get a job since it was only my first attempt. But the lack of a backup was scary, so I really think that I don't wanna stay at home and prepare. I'd rather try to manage studies with job.
What do you guys think, should I go ahead with the offer or extend my gap with another year without a job at hand?

2023.06.10 09:17 tenamonth [TOMT] [PS4] Some PlayStation game that was basically a live action movie, except you make some of the choices?

I guess similar to Bandersnatch, but it might’ve been PlayStation exclusive.
The protagonist was a woman, she came to this idk hotel or hospital or something to stay, I can’t remember. Throughout the game you uncover this weird cult plotline. I think one of the endings has the whole building on fire as you and some other girl (your sister? your lover? Idk) escape.
Some other scenes I vaguely remember, one where she’s in the “reception” area getting checked in and she sees some creepy kids running somewhere, and one other scene where she’s laying happily in some flowery field.

2023.06.10 09:02 pvtherman June 10, 2023, Schottenstein Center(Value City Arena), Columbus, OH, United States Tour Thread [Setlist, Media, Discussion]

Toronto I hope you enjoyed your gig the other night ago (you guys were sweet during Blue as well!). That tour of Canada was really long, you know? But anyways we move back into the US for tonight's gig. And our first stop tonight is over in Columbus at the Schottenstein Center (A.K.A the Value City Arena)! Now the air quality has somewhat improved recently-ish. And it's kind of moderate-ishly tolerable (though unhealthy for sensitive groups). So try to still take care out there. You can stay indoors and probably the best way to do that is to well, go to tonight's gig, yeah! So Columbus stay healthy and get ready to party it up at the Schottenstein CenteValue City Arena, you won't want to miss it. Also I can finally again confirm that Paramore security will be again offering GA wristbands (General Admission) to 500 lucky fans who arrive at the venue at 8:00am. You can then leave and return back to the venue at around 3:30pm for your line-up. There will be designated lines for if you did or didn't pick up a GA wristband in the morning. Anyways Columbus, stay safe out there and have fun tonight and enjoy Paramore, Bloc Party and Genesis Owusu! And if you're going out, tell us how the concert went afterwards nd grab a setlist on your way out, enjoy the show Columbus!

2023.06.10 08:58 bryanS0409 write a answer What are the key features and benefits of fraud detection software in preventing and mitigating fraudulent activities?

Fraud detection software is a powerful tool that helps businesses in preventing and mitigating fraudulent activities. Here are some key features and benefits of using fraud detection software:
  1. Real-time Monitoring: Fraud detection software continuously monitors transactions, activities, and data in real-time. It quickly detects suspicious patterns, anomalies, and potential fraud indicators, allowing businesses to take immediate action and prevent fraudulent activities from occurring.
  2. Advanced Analytics: Fraud detection software employs advanced analytics techniques to analyze large volumes of data and identify fraudulent patterns and trends. By leveraging machine learning algorithms and artificial intelligence, the software can detect complex fraud schemes that may be difficult to identify through manual methods alone.
  3. Rule-based Scoring: Fraud detection software utilizes rule-based scoring systems to assign risk scores to transactions or activities. These rules can be customized based on the specific needs of the business and industry. Transactions with high-risk scores can trigger alerts or additional verification steps, enabling businesses to scrutinize suspicious activities more closely.
  4. Multi-channel Monitoring: Fraudsters can exploit various channels such as online platforms, mobile apps, and call centers to carry out fraudulent activities. Fraud detection software provides multi-channel monitoring capabilities, allowing businesses to detect and prevent fraud across different touchpoints, ensuring comprehensive protection.
  5. Integration with External Data Sources: Fraud detection software can integrate with external data sources such as public records, watchlists, and industry databases. This integration enhances the software's ability to identify potentially fraudulent individuals or entities by cross-referencing data and identifying matches with known fraudulent profiles.
  6. Automated Case Management: When a suspicious activity or transaction is identified, fraud detection software facilitates automated case management. It streamlines the investigation process by providing a centralized platform for collecting evidence, tracking progress, and collaborating with relevant stakeholders. This accelerates the resolution of fraud cases and minimizes manual effort.
  7. Reduced False Positives: Effective fraud detection software employs sophisticated algorithms and machine learning models to minimize false positives. By fine-tuning the system's rules and thresholds, businesses can strike a balance between detecting genuine fraud attempts and reducing unnecessary disruptions to legitimate transactions or activities.
  8. Cost Savings: Implementing fraud detection software can lead to significant cost savings for businesses. By preventing fraudulent activities, organizations avoid financial losses, reputational damage, and potential legal liabilities associated with fraud incidents. Additionally, automated fraud detection processes reduce the need for extensive manual reviews, saving time and resources.
  9. Compliance and Regulatory Requirements: Fraud detection software helps businesses meet compliance and regulatory requirements related to fraud prevention. It enables the implementation of robust fraud prevention measures, ensuring adherence to industry-specific regulations and safeguarding customer data.
  10. Continuous Improvement: Fraud detection software allows businesses to learn and adapt over time. By analyzing historical data, monitoring outcomes, and fine-tuning the system, the software improves its fraud detection capabilities, staying one step ahead of evolving fraud tactics.
In conclusion, fraud detection software provides a comprehensive and proactive approach to prevent and mitigate fraudulent activities. With real-time monitoring, advanced analytics, rule-based scoring, and multi-channel capabilities, businesses can effectively detect and respond to fraud attempts, minimizing financial losses and protecting their reputation. The benefits extend to cost savings, regulatory compliance, and continuous improvement in fraud prevention strategies.

2023.06.10 08:57 anon8608 Attendance at post-wedding brunch

Having my wedding in a hotel and we are planning a "farewell" brunch the morning after. Curious to know if anyone has observations on how many people actually attend a morning-after brunch after RSVPing "yes". Much of our crowd is out of towners staying in the hotel, but I have to raise an eyebrow at the locals who are staying in their own houses 20 min away. (Are they really going to drive back in and pay for parking?) And even with the folks staying at the hotel, I imagine some of them will prioritize sleep and packing in the end.
Curious about this because a family friend recently held a post-wedding brunch and wasted thousands of dollars due to no-shows.

2023.06.10 08:46 JaySmart_Timewalker Jaylen for JJJ? (if we had to trade him)

I’ve been saying this for a while, I am not in the camp of wanting to trade Jaylen. I love (and sometimes hate) this team and I would be perfectly fine trying to run it back with this group.
That said, if we were to trade Jaylen, there are very few guys to get back that I’d consider, but Jaren Jackson Jr would be a great (semi-realistic) fit to get back. Here’s what I’d propose:
Jaylen & timelord for JJJ & Clarke.
Memphis desperately needs a wing like Jaylen, who would be a great fit there since he would be the second option after Ja. However, if they are giving up JJJ they need another big to anchor the defense, so we sweeten the pot by adding in timelord in exchange for Clarke.
From the Celtics standpoint, timelord is expendable at that point because JJJ can do almost anything timelord can (especially defensively) but a lot more. He provides a pick and roll partner for Tatum (and smart/white/Brogdon when Tatum is out), he can space the floor and score in the post, and is an elite versatile defender who can guard the post and be a “rover” blocking shots off the ball like timelord. You then re-sign Grant and go with a double big lineup most of the time, except when you go double big with Al and JJJ all 5 guys can shoot so you kinda get the best of both small and big. Without Jaylen, White, smart, and our other guards could pick up more of the slack with ball handling and running the offense when Tatum is out, which they’re capable of doing especially with a great big like JJJ to run pick and roll with. And most importantly, JJJ is only 24 and under contract for reasonable money (like $25M per) for 3 more years.
And Clarke I don’t know as much about but he’s a solid 4th big on a reasonable contract (like $12M per); could always reroute him too, he’s not integral to the deal.
The biggest hurdle (other than Memphis likely being pretty attached to JJJ) is Jaylen would have to commit to extending with Memphis cause no way they’re doing this with just 1 year on Jaylens deal without assurances he’ll stay.
What do you guys think?

2023.06.10 08:46 Digikraf123 15 Benefits of Social Media Marketing


Social media marketing has become an essential strategy for businesses in today's digital landscape. It offers numerous advantages, including brand recognition, audience engagement, increased website traffic, and more. However, many businesses fail to leverage the full potential of social media marketing and miss out on valuable opportunities. In this article, we will explore 15 unique benefits of social media marketing that can revolutionize your brand's online presence and marketing strategy.

1. Improve Your Brand Image

When implemented effectively, social media marketing can have a profound impact on your brand's image. It provides an opportunity to humanize your company and build trust, loyalty, authority, and recognition. By sharing content that showcases the people behind your brand and real users of your products or services, you can establish brand credibility and authenticity.
Authenticity is highly valued by consumers today. In fact, a study by Sprout Social revealed that in 2022, consumers considered a company's alignment with their personal values 74% more important than the previous year. By aligning your brand's values with meaningful actions such as supporting activism and philanthropy, you can significantly enhance your brand's reputation and resonate with your target audience. Patagonia, a renowned outdoor apparel company, serves as an excellent example of an organization that practices what it preaches. By dedicating its profits to environmental causes, Patagonia reinforces its commitment to combating the climate crisis and exemplifies its brand values.

2. Engage Your Audience

Social media not only enables you to increase brand awareness but also provides a platform for engaging with your audience. Unlike traditional media channels such as radio, television, newspapers, and magazines, social media allows for two-way communication between businesses and customers.
Through social media, you can respond to posts, share user-generated content, and address customer concerns. It facilitates direct interaction with your audience, allowing you to gain valuable insights and feedback on your products or services. By engaging with your followers in a personalized and timely manner, you can demonstrate that your company values customer needs and establish a strong connection with your audience.

3. Promote Customer Service

In addition to traditional customer service channels like chat, email, and phone support, social media provides an additional avenue for connecting with your customers. Since social media is a public platform, addressing customer feedback and resolving issues promptly can showcase your commitment to excellent customer service.
By responding thoughtfully and empathetically to customer complaints or queries on social media, you not only increase the likelihood of retaining that customer but also showcase your brand's commitment to customer satisfaction to a broader audience. Approximately 50% of social media users expect brands to respond to their inquiries within three hours, highlighting the importance of being accessible and responsive on social media platforms.

4. Impact Sales and Conversion Rates

A well-executed social media marketing strategy can positively impact your sales and conversion rates. With the average person spending approximately 147 minutes on social media each day, your content has the potential to reach a wide audience. Engaging and compelling social media posts can drive viewers to become customers.
While social media leads are often considered top-of-the-funnel prospects, the extensive reach of social media platforms increases the likelihood of converting leads into customers. By consistently sharing high-quality and captivating content, you can encourage your audience to take the desired action, whether it's making a purchase, signing up for a newsletter, or downloading a resource.

5. Become a Thought Leader

Social media platforms provide a unique opportunity for your brand to establish thought leadership within your industry. By sharing insightful and valuable content on platforms like LinkedIn, Twitter, and Facebook, you can position your company as a trusted authority, building trust and loyalty among your customers.
The Edelman Trust Barometer reported that nearly half of respondents considered the government and the media as "divisive," highlighting an opportunity for businesses to fill the void and become reliable sources of information. By consistently sharing thought-provoking and informative content, you can gain credibility, attract a loyal following, and position your brand as an industry leader.

6. Drive Website Traffic

One of the key benefits of social media marketing is its ability to drive traffic to your website. By including links to your website in your social media posts, you can direct users to your website and increase the chances of conversions.
Additionally, social media platforms offer advertising options that can further boost website traffic. Platforms like Facebook, Instagram, and LinkedIn provide various ad formats, targeting options, and tracking capabilities to help you reach your desired audience and drive traffic to your website.

7. Enhance SEO Efforts

Search engine optimization (SEO) is crucial for improving your website's visibility in search engine results. Social media can play a significant role in enhancing your SEO efforts.
Social signals, such as likes, shares, and comments on your social media posts, can contribute to your website's overall authority and search engine rankings. Moreover, sharing your website content on social media platforms increases its visibility, making it more likely to be discovered and linked to by other websites, further improving your SEO.

8. Gather Market Insights

Social media platforms provide a wealth of information about your target audience and industry trends. By monitoring conversations and engagements on social media, you can gain valuable market insights that can shape your marketing strategies and product offerings.
Social listening tools and analytics platforms can help you track mentions of your brand, competitors, and industry keywords. This data can inform your content creation, campaign targeting, and product development decisions, allowing you to better cater to your audience's needs.

9. Expand Your Audience Reach

Social media allows you to extend your brand's reach to a wider audience. With billions of users active on social media platforms, you can tap into new markets and demographics that may have been challenging to reach through traditional marketing channels.
Through targeted advertising and content optimization, you can reach specific audience segments and expand your brand's visibility to potential customers who may have never encountered your brand before.

10. Foster Brand Loyalty

Building and maintaining customer loyalty is vital for long-term business success. Social media marketing provides an avenue for nurturing customer relationships and fostering brand loyalty.
By regularly engaging with your audience, providing valuable content, and offering exclusive promotions or discounts to your social media followers, you can create a community of loyal customers who advocate for your brand and refer others to your products or services.

11. Monitor and Manage Your Online Reputation

Social media plays a crucial role in managing your brand's online reputation. With customers often discussing their experiences and opinions about your brand on social media platforms, it is essential to actively monitor and manage your online reputation.
By promptly addressing customer concerns, resolving issues, and showcasing your commitment to excellent customer service, you can mitigate the impact of negative feedback and maintain a positive brand reputation.

12. Cost-Effective Marketing Channel

Compared to traditional marketing channels, social media marketing offers a cost-effective way to promote your brand. Creating and maintaining social media profiles is typically free, and paid advertising options on social media platforms often provide a higher return on investment compared to traditional advertising methods.
Social media platforms offer targeting options that allow you to reach your desired audience without wasting resources on reaching those who may not be interested in your products or services. This targeted approach can significantly reduce your marketing costs while maximizing your reach.

13. Keep Up with Competitors

Monitoring your competitors' activities and staying informed about their marketing strategies is essential for staying competitive. Social media provides a transparent platform where you can keep track of your competitors' social media presence, engagement strategies, and content performance.
By understanding what your competitors are doing well and identifying gaps or opportunities, you can refine your own social media marketing strategy to differentiate your brand and stay ahead in the market.

14. Facilitate Influencer Collaborations

Influencer marketing has gained significant popularity in recent years. Social media platforms serve as the primary channel for influencers to connect with their audiences, making it easier for brands to collaborate with influencers and leverage their influence.
Partnering with influencers can help you tap into their established audiences, increase brand awareness, and reach new customers. By finding influencers who align with your brand values and target audience, you can amplify your message and build credibility through their endorsements.

15. Real-Time Feedback and Performance Tracking

One of the key advantages of social media marketing is the ability to receive real-time feedback and track the performance of your campaigns. Social media platforms provide analytics and insights that enable you to measure the success of your posts, ads, and overall social media strategy.
By monitoring metrics such as engagement rates, click-through rates, conversion rates, and follower growth, you can make data-driven decisions, optimize your content and campaigns, and continually improve your social media marketing efforts.


Social media marketing offers numerous benefits for businesses, including improved brand image, audience engagement, customer service opportunities, increased sales and conversions, thought leadership establishment, website traffic generation, SEO enhancement, market insights, expanded audience reach, brand loyalty cultivation, online reputation management, cost-effective marketing, competitor monitoring, influencer collaborations, and real-time feedback and performance tracking. By leveraging these benefits effectively, you can elevate your brand's online presence and drive significant business growth.
