In Adventurers League, can you change Full Plate armour into Half Plate?

Playing in AL my barbarian has acquired a set of adamantine full plate armour. As this prevents him from his rage benefits, I was wondering if I could simply use it as adamantine half plate, using the half plate stats?

From the Player’s Handbook:

Plate armour: Plate consists of shaped, interlocking metal plates to cover the entire body. A suit of plate includes gauntlets, heavy leather boots, a visored helmet, and thick layers of padding underneath the armor. Buckles and straps distribute the weight over the body.

Half plate: Half plate consists of shaped metal plates that cover most of the wearer’s body. It does not include leg Protection beyond simple greaves that are attached with leather straps.

Could you simply decide not to wear the whole set?

Choose $n$ out of $2n-1$ boxes containing at least half of all white balls and half of all black balls


We are given $ 2n – 1$ boxes with black and white balls. In the $ i$ -th, box there are $ w_i$ white and $ b_i$ black balls. It is required to choose $ n$ boxes so that, the sum of the white balls is at least $ W/2$ , and the sum of black balls is at least $ B/2$ . Solve for $ O(n\log{n})$ .

What I am currently thinking is this:

Generate some hashtable to be able to track the boxes that we chose.
Sort the boxes by the quantity of the white (in increasing order) balls and chose the last $ n$ balls every time keeping them in our hashtable.
Sort by the quantity of the black balls and do the same. Check every time to see if we already chose the box or not. Here comes the problem: Suppose we didn’t. Then we can face a situation where we already have $ n$ boxes that have in total at least $ W/2$ white balls but at the same time, they have in total less than $ B/2$ black balls. How can we overcome this problem?

We can’t just switch the chosen boxes that have the least number of white balls with the one that have the maximum available number of black balls since the box with white balls can contain significant amount of black balls on its own.

[ Politics ] Open Question : Would we be better off if Republicans spent half as much energy trying to address the crises as they spend convincing us there is no crises?

I reckon there will be a second wave of coronavirus infections due to Republicunt ignorance. As states rush to reopen the economy, scientists caution there could be a second wave of coronavirus infections. It’s not a hoax, it’s science.

Does a Scourge Aasimar take half damage from its own Radiant Consumption effect?

In Volo’s Guide to Monsters, the Aasimar playable race has the following trait (pg. 105):

Celestial Resistance. You have resistance to necrotic damage and radiant damage.

So they take only half damage from radiant damage.

The Scourge Aasimar sub-race also have this ability (pg. 105):

Radiant Consumption. Starting at 3rd level, you can use your action to unleash the divine energy within yourself, causing a searing light to radiate from you, pour out of your eyes and mouth, and threaten to char you.

… at the end of each of your turns, youtake radiant damage equal to half your level (rounded up). In addition, once on each of your turns, you can deal extra radiant damage to one target when you deal damage to it with an attack or a spell. The extra radiant damage equals your level.

So let’s say a level 10 Scourge Aasimar activates this ability. During their turn, they make a nearby creature take 10 radiant damage. Does the Aasimar themselves take 5 also, or do they only take half of that because of their Celestial Resistance?

In other words, does their Celestial Resistance negate (some of) their own self-dealing damage from Radiant Consumption?

Reducing Vertex Cover to Half Vertex Cover

I need to reduce Vertex Cover to Half Vertex Cover using a Karp reduction:

Vertex Cover: Given a graph $ G = (V,E)$ and an integer $ k$ , is there a subset of $ V$ of size $ k$ which intersects all edges?

Half Vertex Cover: Given a graph $ G = (V,E)$ and an integer $ k$ , is there a subset of $ V$ of size $ k$ which intersects exactly half the edges?

I will be happy if you can tell me how to do that and why the reduction works (both directions of the proof).

Mysql CSV import when using LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE only imports half of the rows

I am doing an import with below code and it works but only imports every second row (1,3,5,7…) and only imports half the total csv contents at the end.

LOAD DATA LOCAL INFILE "'.$  file.'" INTO TABLE '.$  table.' FIELDS TERMINATED by \',\' ENCLOSED BY \'"\' LINES TERMINATED BY \'\n\' (column1,column2,etc) 

My csv is like this “text”,1234,”text” etc

Can anyone pls help with this.

Can I drag a grappled creature and release it after moving half of my speed, then move the remainder of my speed?

The grappling rules state:

Moving a Grappled Creature.

When you move, you can drag or carry the grappled creature with you, but your speed is halved, unless the creature is two or more sizes smaller than you.

If I have 30 speed and have an enemy grappled, then I move 15 feet and release my grapple on my target, do I still have 15 feet of movement left, or is it lost for the round?
