What would you call someone who constantly is thinking of all scenarios/possibilities/outcomes?

If someone is the type of person who goes into a situation or conversation and before stepping in thinks of all the different things that could happen and how they would respond.

Example: If they ask me about this… I would say that…
If this happens… I would do this…

Why are profit/loss constantly adjusted in futures contracts if the goal is to protect against volatility?

In this article: http://www.investopedia.com/university/futures/futures2.asp?header_alt=g In the chapter “Profit and Losses-Cash Settlement”, the author describes that profit and loss are governed by changes in market prices.

I guess I’m confused as to why there would even be profit and loss in a futures market.
The way it was explained, I thought the whole point of a futures contract was to guarantee against the effects of volatility. In other words, you’d enter a contract to be fulfilled for a certain quantity of a commodity at a certain price in advance of a specific fixed date.

So for example, a banana producer agrees to sell 100kg of bananas for $5/kg 3 months from today and the buyer agrees to pay $500 at that date.

If all of those factors are fixed, why do the participants gain and lose money as the price changes in the market?

Is the idea that those changes reflect the price you would get if you want to close your contract by transfering it to someone else? But then, why wouldn’t you get the price you paid for initially?

If you were to wait until the date of delivery, would you get the price you agreed to initially, unaffected by price movements?

EV3 Brick and Commander software bluetooth constantly disconnecting

We’re having an issue with the EV3 Brick and Commander app bluetooth connection constantly disconnecting. The brick just stops responding, so we turn the brick off to disconnect and then reconnect bluetooth via the app. After doing this is connects for a brief time, we’re able to control the brick for a moment but very soon it disconnects again.

It’s really frustrating to say the least. Any suggestions on how to fix this?

Bluetooth mouse constantly disconnects and reconnects

My bluetooth mouse won’t stay connected. This happened recently in 16.04, and I subsequently upgraded to 18.04, but the problem persists.

From bluetoothctl you can see everytime I move the mouse it connects, then just disconnects immediately.

$ bluetoothctl

I’ve followed other threads suggesting to update to the latest bluez5 version, but no dice….

Any help would be appreciated.

win7/constantly get limited access to internet but fixed with manual reconnect

For the last few months, my Dell XPS L502x laptop with windows 7 keeps losing access to wifi with “limited access” message on the internet access icon.

A simple disconnect/reconnect fixes the issue but is often followed with a same problem shortly after.

enter image description here

Right clicking to troubleshoot can’t find a problem.

The laptop does not automatically reconnect at any point and thus needs manual disconnect/reconnect each time.

The settings are set to automatically reconnect when the network is in range.

enter image description here

My dad has no idea what is happening and says everything is fine on his part.

Can somebody explain what might be happening and how to resolve it?

LRAFB: I live one mile away and they are constantly flying over my house, harrassed me twice [on hold]

This is going to sound conspiracy theory-ish and probably a bit crazy, but hear me out. I live a mile away from Little Rock Air Force Base.

My father worked on the C-130’s that fly over my house nearly every day for 22 years and he died in 2014. It is sun up to sundown, nonstop airplanes flying above my home, except for on weekends and holidays. The majority of the airplanes are c-130’s but of course there are all kinds of interesting aircraft: b-2 bombers, weird jetplanes, army aircraft…

One weird aircraft was I swear as big as a boat in the sky, it didn’t even have wings and it was just… slowly hovering there, it looked like a gigantic chandelier…. was in the evening and didn’t think to take pictures.

They have 4 or 5 different flight paths it seems. One: over my house, one across the neighbors across the street, and one through the woods next to my house, then the woods next to my neighbors house to the right of my house if you were looking into the driveway.

I am sick and tired of them constantly flying above my house. They seem to choose this route 70% or more of the time. They have no regard for the people below them because they fly directly over my home, over and over and over again. It is like being harrassed. On occasions, they fly so close, all my belongings in my house rattle…

When I was pregnant with my daughter, they flew over my house repeatedly, too. With pregnancy comes super human hearing: lack of sleep fucking SUCKS and they don’t give a crap that I’m a mom trying to raise my daughter and the airplanes even wake my toddler daughter up at night time.

If you are a C-130 pilot in LRAFB, please be respectful of the people below you. Stop flying over their homes and use the woods like you should, stop waking me up at night.

TWice: I’ve had them fly over my home for hours and hours, even at night repeatedly obviously intentionally fucking with me after I brought up harrassment from my employer to the DOJ, even causing my heart to race, giving me panic attacks, anxiety, and paranoia from the lack of sleep. The first event was in 2014, the second was last year in 2017.

Coinciding both times with these weird events were that the night sky lit up all night for days on end… obviously the military doing something weird and lighting up the whole frigging sky. FLying over and over, like… multiple planes within a very short time span and this went on for hours while I laid there trying to sleep. I believe the stress may have even damaged my heart or made my anxiety worse as I constantly feel pain from my anxiety in my chest.

The military needs to be more responsible and respectful of its citizens as I deserve PEACE and quiet in my home, the ability to sleep, have healthy air, etc etc.

TL;DR: C-130’s need to stop flying over homes and use the woods when they are able to, AND they need to warn people before they light up the sky for a week and freak people out.

Can ANYONE shine any light here of why they might do that for days on end (light up the night sky)?

Can anyone tell me why they would harrass a citizen, even accidentally? Do they have no brains in their head to realize they are flying over the same people’s houses OVER AND OVER again?

Why can’t our C-130’s use the woods and stop flying over my house?

Question: Dad constantly buys things he can’t afford?

So I just found out my dad bought 3 new I phones, one for him and for me and my sister. I’m great full that he got one ( it’s for Christmas) but my heart hurts for him, he’s in debt and he buys things we can’t afford. He is just now going to get more into debt and be sad about it. Then take his emotions out on the family. I’m 18 and moving out in less than a year . AGAIN IM GRETFUL FOR IT. But I told over in the past over and over that I don’t like the new I phones he never listens of what I have to say. I hope I don’t sound selfish, but my heart just breaks for him, I know this is going to hurt him , and I don’t want to hurt him even more by telling him theses things. To stop buying things we can’t afford, ( we live in a “hood” in a rundown apartment) we are in debt. And he’s depressed because of it. What should I do ?
