Would UK visa ban affect Ireland student visa application

I was refused a UK visit visa for my graduation in the UK last year and also penalized with a 10 years ban. The reason for the penalty was that I over stayed my previous visa by one day and I failed to disclose the one day over stay in the visa application i made for my graduation, and also due to negligence, I wrote incorrect dates of travel into and out of UK while I held my previous visa. I intend doing an LLM ( masters) in Ireland, would the 10 years UK ban affect my chances if I apply for an Irish student visa? I would like your opinions please.

How would Japanese people react to someone refusing to say “itadakimasu” for religious reasons?

So, it’s my understanding that in Japan it’s considered to be polite to say “itadakimasu” before eating. From what I’ve read, it seems that the meaning of this phrase derives from Buddhist and Shinto religious concepts, however, which gives rise to this question: how would the typical Japanese person respond to a foreigner (who might be a Christian, Muslim, or a member of some similar monotheistic faith) who refused to say it (as politely as possible) and cited religious reasons to do so?

Where would you handle exceptions, controller, service, repository?

I have been having this dilema from time to time whenever I have to design or start a new project from scratch.

I particularly like how Spring framework is organise in terms of classic software patterns, like services, repositories etc. By reading and going through community projects written in Spring and for example Nodejs (two absolutely different environments), design APIs differs in, several points but, the one this post is about is, exception handling.

Imagine we are hitting a specific resource by a HTTP request. It will first go to the controller, assuming no middleware in place, service, repository if any and back to the controller. But, what happens if the service needs to throw an error or the custom implementation of the repository needs to throw an error?

I have seen implementations of both types:

  1. Inside the service/repository, throwing the actual HTTP error wrapped in a try catch statement like: new BadRequestException(statusCode, message)
  2. Let the exception or error bubble up until a global middleware catches it, and returns it back to the client.

I personally believe that mixing the logic layer (service) and data layer-ish (repository) with the transport layer (HTTP controller), it’s a mistake or a wrong choice since you are mixing conceptually different things. And on the later, rely on a global middleware will make you to specify the status code or instantiate a class that internally uses the needed status code and message.

In frameworks or environments that different such Spring and Nodejs, I’ve seen both implementations, specially on Nodejs. Nestjs, uses more like a Spring approach and expresjs more like the second one.

So the finally question is, what would you rather do or which is you preferred way of handling this exception handling?

Best, Javi.

Would casting banishment on a Revenant permanently send it away to another plane?

In my campaign I’m being chased by a revenant and I’m about to reach level 7. I was thinking of taking banishment to cast on the revenant. The spell states that it brings creatures native to my plane back after a minute but if the creature belongs to another plane it goes there. So because the revenant is dead would it go back to the land of the dead?

Can anyone tell my why someone would cast Conjure Minor Elementals? [duplicate]

This question is an exact duplicate of:

  • Rephrased Question- Why is nearly all of the Conjure Minor Elemental Spell decided by the DM? [on hold]

If I understand this right – you don’t pick the CR of the elementals, you pick their maximum CR. You don’t pick where it actually appears, it just appears somewhere within 90 feet of you. You don’t even pick the element of what you are summoning.

To summarize, you can cast Conjure Minor Elementals at 8th level in an underwater fight, select the option to 3 elementals of CR 2 or lower, and receive 3 CR 1/2 Magma Mephits that are 90 feet away from the fight? In character I would know I am not picking any part of the what I am summoning, I’m basically just yelling help into the void. Why would I waste a 4th level spell to summon a completely random something instead of using something like Polymorph, which just gives you the creature you want and does so by giving something a massive bonus health pool?

Is there any use for this spell besides the tiny benefit of just a couple extra bodies with at most like 40 health – which you can get 5 of with animate objects?

Would a character with eternal youth be AL compliant

So I want to have my character be cursed with eternal youth from a backround perspective. She’ll still be “killable” she just can’t age. Would that break AL rules. I know you can add/change flavor as long as it doesn’t change an mechanics so I wanted to know if that would count as changing mechanics or otherwise break AL rules before I write it up and present it to a dm.

I would like to crack a very mysterious code but have no idea what algorithm it is or who made it

enter image description here Here is the text message my friend got, all of which is encrypted in some way. Here is a transcript:

Do any of you know what code this is or how I can solve it? Thank you for the help.

What Would Be A Balanced Eldritch Invocation That Involves Blindsight?

I’ve been trying to homebrew an Eldritch Invocation that grants the Warlock blindsight, but I’m not sure how far this blindsight should extend. I initially thought to compare it to the pre-existing invocation Devil’s Sight, which grants 120 feet of darkvision through magical and non-magical darkness, but blindsight is (obviously) far superior to darkvision, so I deserted that comparison. Any suggestions for how far the blindsight should extend would be greatly appreciated.

I was hoping to make this blindsight Eldritch Invocation have no Warlock level or Pact prerequisites, but I would be willing to add a level prerequisite if it’s absolutely necessary.

What name would you give to this class design?

I have inherited a legacy code base and see allot of classes that implement methods in the following way.

class Example {      private $  foo;      public function setFoo(Foo $  foo)     {         $  this->foo = $  foo;     }      public function doSomething()     {         $  this->foo->bar();         $  this->foo->baz();          return $  this->foo->doSomethingElse();     }      public function reset()     {         $  this->foo = null;     }  } 

The class would then be used in the following way.

$  foo1 = new Foo(); $  foo2 = new Foo();  $  example = new Example(); $  example->setFoo($  foo1); $  example->doSomething(); $  example->reset(); $  example->setFoo($  foo2); $  example->doSomething($  foo2); 

Obviously this class has no need for the $ foo property; which should be replaced as an method argument.

 class Example {      public function doSomething(Foo $  foo)     {         $  this->foo->bar();         $  this->foo->baz();          return $  this->foo->doSomethingElse();     }  } 

My question is what would you call this code smell? Is there an easy way to describe this design?
