When Do You Give Up on an Employee Doing a Project?

2022.01.23 11:22 MissMappsRecipes When Do You Give Up on an Employee Doing a Project?

At one point do you accept that someone on your team is just never going to do something? I have an intern who expressed intense interest in learning how to do a very technical part of our job. After sitting down with him for an hour, it's clear he had no idea what that work entailed. Worse, he had a bunch of mistaken ideas about it that it was easy and just a matter of using a particular tool.
Since he's an intern, my job is to mentor him. He asked to focus on learning this for the next couple of weeks. He is absolutely not getting it, and has basically completed stopped doing any work at all.
I spend an hour a week training him, and we make no progress. Now, I have a side hustle as a college professor, where I have won several awards for teaching this very thing. I'm pulling out all my strategies that have worked to help all but maybe 2 students finally become pretty much able to do the work. Nothing is getting through.
This is not the first time I have had interns and paid employees ask to be assigned to something, then not "get" how to do it, refuse to go back to their old work they were good at, and basically just sit around all day. When I try to put people back on the work they were productive at, they get angry, and accuse me of not letting them grow. However, I only give up after weeks of meeting with the person, asking how I can help, re-training them again and again, asking them again and again what they need to succeed. I also only do it if the person has stopped working entirely, because they refuse to do their old job and can't seem to learn the new job.
When someone is struggling, I break tasks into tiny, tiny pieces. I teach them something that my students learn in 10 minutes. We do it together. I tell them if they have any questions at all to Slack me anytime. I don't hear from them all week, no questions, no communication at all until I reach out. When I reach out, they are "working on it." No questions at all. Then at our next one on one, they have done nothing, and are back to asking the same questions as on day one.
Again, if I had no experience training I'd be looking for advice on how to train. But I have gotten feedback from my chair at my college that they are blown away by how I can teach this to pretty much anyone with a brain.
Am I just manipulated by employees who do this? Is something missing?

Hi red, hope all is well with you.
I'm stuck trying to progress with one of side quests. It's research area, construction zone. One door on the left, one opening (with biomass film) on the right. I got extended reach manipulation and turned off the switch inside opening. I've got thru opening. Next is a door with a small crack and beyond that there's a panel in the floor with cutting cues. What do I do here? I can't reach it with my cutter tool... Thank you!

2022.01.23 11:22 jw11235 Isn't Bitcoin just a ledger?

Yes, it's a decentralised, trust-less, cryptographically signed, first and most widely used........ ledger.
This is what is preventing me from going balls deep into BTC right now. Otherwise fear is high so it's a great time to buy more.
I mean if BTC was a ledger shared between 10 friends with an agreed price of 1$ = 1BTC, settled monthly. We all know there is no way to alter that shared ledger. But there still can be a bad friend who never pays his monthly share or pays just half of what he is owed. When he does that, the dollar value of all other people's 'Bitcoins' goes down.
If translated to a market level this is what is happening right now. Except there was never an agreed value of a BTC.
I know it doesn't matter if BTC turns into a global currency with a stable price. But what would that stable price be? Why will it remain stable? When can it be expected to be reached?
Another pet peeve of mine is when people associate the mining cost of Bitcoins with its value. Just because something is hard to obtain doesn't automatically makes it valuable.
I want to know your thoughts on these issues. I am new to crypto so please correct any misconceptions I may have.

2022.01.23 11:22 ziewezo Translating a trial 2

So this one is written with very poor grammar. I already corrected some things, but I just can’t figure out what happened with this truck. Can someone translate please? It’s for a translation exam.
Önümde tır gidiyordu ve ağır gidiyordu. Onu sollamak için sol sinyalimi yoktum ve solmaya girince oda önüme büktü. Tek bir sefer ban vurduğunu hatırlayım. Beni sıkıştırdı oto bana demiriyle tırın ortasında kaldım. Sağda o bana vurdu. Solda ben otoban şeridine vurdum. Şuurumu kaybettim. Tek hatırladığım 200-300 metre sonra durduğum ve araçtan kendim indim (indiğim).
