I am doing a job search and have noticed that a large amount of civil engineering companies have involvement with military, oil and gas, fast food, etc.
When I would ask the company if they plan on getting out of oil and gas, they would say "we have no plan" or "we won't get out till the industry gets out".
I am finding that the career is more about getting more work and profit than it is about realizing the effect one is having.
Restaurants/grocery stores - aiding in killing of animals via selling meat, aiding in killing of amphibians/insects via pesticides used on vegetables from farming that are then sold
Fast food - aiding in unhealthy food = unhealthy society
Military - aiding in bombing other countries
Oil and gas, plastics, coal production, gas stations - aiding in climate change, pollution
We need the industry as a whole to become more conscious and realize that it is part of the problem.
Allowing yourself to do one unhealthy thing opens the door up to excuses to do other unhealthy things. A company will say, "oh that thing that you are referring to is only a small percent of our work" - but yet, hey they are still choosing to take those projects anyway.
It seems that people are not aware enough of how they are part of "evil/low consciousness/selfishness" - there is prioritization of self/one's own tribe over the environment, plants, animals, future generations, other countries, etc.
"oh I am just doing this project because my boss told me to", "oh we will take this project because we want to get more projects and this is just one that we have been offered", "oh I am just doing my job", "oh I am just trying to make money because I have mouths to feed", "I don't care about the impact but I think the work is interesting", "oh I need more skills so I will do it regardless of what impact it has".
People come up with whatever rationalization they have to in order to allow themselves to keep on doing their job.
It is a failure of the school system but the people themselves are low conscious. I doubt anything will come from this post as most will just do nothing about it but there is always the chance that it does make an impact.
Civil Engineers claim to be promoting the welfare of the public but I see them also hurting the welfare - and they are openly advertising about it on their website by showing the types of work they do.
Not all companies are like this and I applaud those that are not. But there are a large amount that are.

2021.09.28 17:45 Alson71 Solo pubs isn’t that fun anymore
I know this is just going to sound like a typical “fortnite is not fun anymore” rant, but here’s how I feel:
As a player from 2018 that has been trying to get a better feel for the game (I had a very bad computer back then), I decided to get back into the game a few months ago. However, I’ve been noticing a couple of things. To start, a majority of the people that play solo pubs now are basically arena players that make me and other players have to expend all of our mats in one fight. If you lose the fight, rinse and repeat in another lobby. If you win the fight, you have to quickly get their mats because you’re almost guaranteed to have to fight 1-2 extra people that are immediately pushing you with the same playstyle as the last guy. This combined with the fact that someone will always be ready to come knock you down from the bottom as you’re fighting someone can be very annoying and repetitive.
Don’t even get me started on endgame lobbies: each end game has at least 5-10 people alive, all of them building pyramids across the entire end zone and covering up everything while trying to do crazy angle shots. If I wanted to play like that, I would join a scrim lobby but this is literally every end game that I’ve had so far in solo pubs.
I really did like coming back into the game initially, but having to fight the same copy and paste players while also having to play every end game like a scrim lobby is tiring and makes me feel like I should take another break from the game. And it’s not that I can’t keep up with these types of players, but I just don’t have the energy to constantly keep playing like it’s arena when I just want to have fun. What do you guys think about solos pubs?

2021.09.28 17:45 TheTreeGuy Xcaret as a solo guy?
Hey guys, I'm a 23 year old guy. Would I stand out alone at Xcaret? Primarily for the cultural information and experiences (and it looks kinda fun and relaxing).
I can't tell if it's primarily a family park or not. It looks like a fun, interesting way to spend a day toward the beginning of my trip to get some cookie cutter information about the Maya people before I go out deeper into the Yucatan.
Also the price seems a tad steep, any tips on good discounts besides booking 21+ days early? Also, any tips or info in general are appreciated.
Thanks a lot

2021.09.28 17:45 ImMikeHonco Federal Technician questions
Ive made it know to my leadership that I’d like to get an AGR job is one becomes available at my base but it’ll be a wait until certain people move snd those jobs open. My leadership is on board with helping me do that but obviously that’s a waiting game.
A GS-9 Technician job opening at my base, and some folks encouraged me to apply for that. Its less than I make currently at my civilian job but a few people told me that with comp time, double dipping for drills and other things they were able to make a lot more than the posted salary. Anyone have any experience with this? How much more were you able to make and was it/is it worth it to take a tech job?
Pretty broad question here but as the main provider for my family I don’t want to take a huge pay cut but I do want to advance my military career. Any advice is appreciated.
