What should I keep in mind when visiting a Baptist church?
Ooh! I can answer this one! :)We love visitors. We love visitors.Don’t be shocked if you get invited to someone’s house for a meal, we totally understand if that’s too much for a total stranger, and won’t be offended if you decline, but we still like to offer. :)There might be a meet and greet time. We’re pretty informal in general and we love to talk and mingle before service, after, and any chance we get!The quiet, formal atmosphere of other denominations doesn’t often apply. We like to sing, and sometimes shout, and we can be fairly unpredictable with things like how many songs to sing or what happens next - sometimes we have an order of service written down, but even then something might change. We like it relaxed!You do not have to give money.We don’t want your money.You don’t have to give money.We’re not trying to take your money.You’re important, not your money.We might pass a plate - that’s to help ourselves remember to give God the money we brought.If you’d love to jump in, great!Please do not feel obligated to give.Nobody is going to care if you don’t give.There might be a box in the back. That’s for us to quietly give.If you want to give, that’s awesome!Nobody will judge you if you don’t give.You are far more important to us than your money.There’s a very high probability that most of the women and girls will be wearing dresses or skirts - but we do not expect that of our visitors, and you will not be judged if you’re a woman who visits in pants!You don’t have to wear a skirt.Nobody will look at you sideways if you come in pants.But, if you want to come in a skirt, or think you will feel awkward if you don’t, by all means do!We definitely appreciate when people leave shorts or ultra casual or super revealing clothing at home, but nobody will judge a visitor.In other words wear whatever you’re comfortable with!You are more important than your clothes.You are more important than what you’re wearing!We do a lot of reading the Bible. We do a lot of singing.We’d love it if you read or sing along.We certainly don’t mind if you don’t!You are more important to us than any song or whether or not you’re carrying a Bible.Half of us don’t know the words to the hymn anyways.You’re most important!Our services tend to be longer than the average Methodist or Presbyterian or Catholic or Lutheran service.If you have a schedule conflict or need to leave, and it’s getting long, nobody will be offended if you skip out.We’d love to stay all day and chat!There is almost always childcare or a nursery where you can bring your children.It may not always be staffed.But it will be available if you need to take a child out that’s acting up. I do this constantly!An usher might give you a visitor card. We’d love to follow up on your visit, but we totally respect if you decline to fill out the card!We love listening to preaching. We believe the Bible.We love having visitors! We know we seem a little strange, and we don’t expect anyone visiting to be just like the people who’ve been coming for 20 years. As long as you act like a normal human being, you’re not going to offend us or scare us… and we really hope we don’t scare you!We consider you and your visit special. We’re glad for it. We have a ton of fun, and don’t believe worship should be boring or stuffy. And we love people.
How do I fill my schedule without burning myself out?
Have certain weekly events scheduled on certain days. Wednesdays, I have a meeting with my support group at church. Every other Monday, I go out to dinner with my dad. Thursdays I go visit my dad. Have certain days free in case something comes up, but scheduling events on specific days that repeat- or even having certain days be activity days- is definitely an excellent method.

How can I schedule an Uber in advance?
Ughh… Sharing my experience with Uber’s schedule a ride functionality so hopefully others don't get burned too.So, was in Madison where it's being tested, had early morning flight at end of confer nice, so scheduled for Uber 4 days in advance for 5am pickup. Everything looked all set, told me inwas confirmed for pickup 5–5:15am. Piece of cake. Great!Notsomuch: All that happened was at 5am my uber app sent out request for cars. Not surprisingly, none available that early, so it just kept requesting, 5 min pass still no cars available, going to miss my flight so I scramble and luckily overbooked cab company took pity and sent a driver already with another passenger to pick me up.so, “scheduling ahead” is only scheduling the app will put out a request, not sure I see how helpful that is, no guarantee of a car, nothing actually scheduled, a set up for a missed flight/appt or really high peak fare if surge prices are in effect as you won't know. Thumbs down from me. Hope this helps others from making same assumptions and mistake I did.
Is it necessary to fill the schedule of FSI, TR & FA in ITR 2 by a permanent NRI?
I discussed the matter at Income tax helpline. According to them Schedule FSI, TA and FA are not applicable in case of NRI.
What is the perfect workout schedule and amount of calories to gain muscle, tone, and fill out?
I don’t think there is a “perfect” workout, or workout schedule, or calories to gain the results you want, the results will vary over different individuals. Don’t focus on searching for the perfect one, focus on finding what works for you, listen to advice from other people, try and get your own evaluation on what you have tried.Also, keep in mind that muscle gaining is a process, not an event, sometimes you are gaining muscle but you just don’t “see” the results, don’t get upset, if you feel good, if you feel you are doing the right thing, give it an other week or so and check, some times the results are just about to notice, but be patient.Having said that, I would give you some ideas based on what work for me. You have to eat a lot of protein, not a lot of calories (the rule of 1.5gr-2gr. per pound of weight is an OK rule in general), if you eat a lot of calories, you might gain some muscle, but they will be hidden under an important layer of fat and you will feel “bigger”, just not muscular, this is one of the biggest changes in approach in the past 2 decades vs. before.Try to eat a lot of protein sustained during the day, 30–40 grams per meal, and with some snacks also if you don’t reach the daily goal. Compliment those proteins with fiber, vegetables have micronutrients that are important to your body (maybe undiscovered yet, but think of your body as a finely balanced machine, if you lack something, other parts do not reach max efficiency nor gains). So, just eating meat, fish and poultry will not do it alone. Try to eat carbs on all meals (or skip carbs at night) but reduced portions, be more afraid of carbs than of fats. Do not eat in excess, never, eat what you want in reasonable portions or very small portions if it is something you shuldn’t be eating in the first place and avoid at all cost the primary sources of empty calories like Candy, Sodas, etc.Workout between 4 to 6 days a week, at least 3 days try to train big muscle groups (back, legs, pecs), it is not true that only through lots of weight you gain muscle, you can also train with less weight and adding reps until you can do no more reps (but not like 30 reps, except for body weight training like push ups) 8–18 reps will do if you have limited access to weights, or if you are coming out of an injury, or if you want to prevent injuries. This last thing is very important, injuries are one of the primary sources to keep motivated people away from training!I hope that helps.
