customs and immigration – When driving from Paraguay to Brazil via Ciudad del Este, with the intent to drive back to Paraguay, does one need to get a stamp at the border?

When driving from Paraguay to Brazil via Ciudad del Este
(Puente Internacional de la Amistad aka Friendship Bridge), with the intent to drive back to Paraguay (without going to another country before going back to Paraguay), does one need to get a stamp at the border?

I know that if one wants to leave Brazil to a country other than Paraguay (e.g., Argentina), then one needs to get a stamp driving from Paraguay to Brazil, but I’m unclear about the case of a round trip.

What’s the status of the land border crossing between Panama/Nicaragua and Costa Rica during the COVID-19 pandemic?

I wonder whether it is possible for a French citizen and US legal permanent resident to cross borders via land between Panama/Nicaragua and Costa Rica during the COVID-19 pandemic. The individual doesn’t have any special visa, work permit or residence in any Central American country.

What’s the status of land border crossing in Central America during the COVID-19 pandemic?

I wonder whether it is possible for a French citizen and US legal permanent resident to cross borders via land between the 7 countries of Central America during the COVID-19 pandemic. The individual doesn’t have any special visa, work permit or residence in Central America.

css – Border of multiple details tags in one html row are not working responsive

I have a proble on my website: https://www.ars-neurochirurgica.com/ . I have several accordion menus which I made with pure css without any javascript and everything works perfect, except for one problem:

When I click on the categories to expand the tag, all other boxes which are collapsed with the detail tag which are on the same row will expand their border from the .div. Is there any way to fix this problem without using javascript? I tried to only draw the border if the details tag is open, however then I run into the problem that the border is smaller than the .div because it will be only assigned to the details tag. The best way would be to be able to select the parent element from the details[open] tag. However after doing some research that is not possible with css3 only. Anyone has ideas how to fix this problem? On mobile it works perfectly fine because only one row is displayed….

Here is an image of the problem:

unity – Border around game preview window

I’m trying to put my game view and scene view next to each other, but the game window seems to have a border around the actual game view that I can’t remove:

unity window

In the screenshot above, the game view should be touching the sides. I’ve tried changing the aspect ratio setting at the top to no avail, increasing the scale works to remove the border but that also zooms in so isn’t a correct representation of the game. Does anyone know how I can remove this border?

customs and immigration – Why do UK border officers question EEA nationals entering?

The other answers have given good general reasons. I want to add a little bit to your particular case, though. In OP you mention that you asked the border officer to stamp a piece of paper that you had brought for him. You further clarified in a comment:

A blank A4 sheet torn in half which I sometimes bring as a souvenir
stamp sheet. When approaching each (French+British) officer, I said
“Good evening”, handed over my ID+sheet and said (in the respective
language) “could you stamp this sheet for me please?”. The French
officer glanced at the ID for 2 seconds and stamped without uttering a
word, while the UK officer briefly questioned me before doing it

There is really nothing wrong with your stamp collection hobby, but it may be one of the reasons the border official struck up a conversation with you. He might not even usually ask EU nationals anything at all. You did something unusual (something less than 1% of travelers do.) Therefore, you singled yourself out, and got his attention. It’s a normal human reaction to engage in a small bit of conversation whenever someone gets our attention. Of course, he is a border official, so the questions he asked were totally professional and appropriate. But if you hadn’t presented the A4 sheet and asked for a stamp, there might have been no questions. Here’s some related reasoning from another answer.

The other answers are also good, by the way. I’m just trying to add another angle. And there’s nothing wrong with your hobby, either, I’m just saying the officer’s questioning could be related to it.

usa – With the border currently closed, how can I get from the US to Canada with a pet without flying or owning a car?

I’m about to move from Chicago, IL to Vancouver, BC for a new job (US citizen, I have work permit approval). I’ve arranged movers already for my stuff (coming Monday); the issue is to bring myself, my cat, and of course some clothes/laptop/etc for until I can get the things from the movers out of storage. I pretty much need to enter Canada before the end of December, for a variety of reasons. I did have a plan for doing this, but it seems I screwed up and it’s not actually an option; discussed below.

There are two obvious options to do the move.

  • Fly. (I’m not thrilled about going through two airports plus a flight near Christmas with the current state of the pandemic, but I’d do it, I guess.)

    • My cat is too big to go in the cabin.

    • Baggage hold options: AA/Delta/United have suspended pets-in-the-hold programs during COVID, Air Canada is suspended from Dec 15 – Jan 12, and I don’t know of any others.

    • Air cargo options: seem to only accept household pets when the outdoor temperature is at least 45F, which is not likely in a Chicago winter, and even if I went to Memphis or something, iffy in a Vancouver winter on the other end anyway. (Next week’s forecast is at most 44F.)

    • Use a pet ground transport company and fly myself: the first one I happened to look up is roughly $3,000, and I can’t find any that confirm online they’re actually doing cross-border moves currently anyway. Also maybe not super fun for my cat given the distance; he’d be much happier hanging out in the car with me than being in a crate for a long period of time.

    • I could drop my cat off with family (in New York, renting a car to get there – $700ish for the rental, plus gas and a night of a hotel partway) to watch him for several months, then fly myself (<$200). This mostly works, but might require some slight skirting of NY quarantine rules, some risk to my older parents who I really don’t want to give COVID for Christmas, and also means I don’t get to have my cat for at least several months, quite possibly longer.

  • Drive. (I don’t own a car.)

    • Rent a car. This was my plan, based on checking several months ago that one-way cross-border rentals seemed to be available on rental company websites. When I went to book it tonight (after long delays getting the movers’ dates sorted out), though, this seemed to no longer be an option. I’ll call some tomorrow to confirm, but even if so, returning the car during the quarantine period is also potentially difficult; I might have to rent the car for an extra two weeks where it’ll sit parked.

    • Buy a car in the next few days; I might be getting one in Vancouver eventually anyway. But importing cars from the US to Canada is a complicated and expensive process, which among other things involves paying sales tax on the car in both countries. (Chicago, incidentally, has the highest sales tax rate in the US at 10.25%; compared to just buying one in Vancouver, the net extra cost is likely to be on the order of $2-3k.) I also don’t know whether I’d be able to get Illinois registration and title quickly enough to begin the export process, especially with Christmas and also most of the DMV-equivalent offices closed due to the current increase in the pandemic.

    • Rent a car to Seattle/Bellingham (currently $1000-ish plus gas and hotels) and find another way to cross the border:

      • None of the usual buses, train, ferry seem to be running. (Maybe I missed one?)
      • I could perhaps take a cab to the border, walk across, then take a cab on the other side. I don’t know whether this is practical? It seems it’s possible but inconvenient in normal times to cross on foot here; I don’t know whether I can reasonably get a cab/Uber/etc at the border on the other side. The cat carrier is quite large and difficult to handle with a suitcase, and I also don’t know if the pet inspection stuff “works” when walking through.
      • I could send the cat with a presumably-cheaper ground pet transport option from Seattle/Bellingham, then fly myself. This seems ridiculous, but is likely cheaper (at the cost of a lot of driving) than ground transport straight from Chicago. I didn’t immediately find a pet transport company I could confirm is actually doing cross-border moves right now, though.

(Amtrak, unfortunately, only allows pets if they’re in carriers, for a max of 7 hours, which makes it not really an option; it also doesn’t help with crossing the border right now.)

I guess the current frontrunner is driving my cat to New York then flying. But I don’t like it as an option, for a bunch of reasons. Is the walk-across-the-border plan feasible? Am I missing something else that would be better?

css – How can I disable the glowing blue border on focus from all input fileds

I wonder if you could help.
I would like to disable the glowwing blue border on focus from all my input fields and replace it with border-bottom: 1px solid black.

I found this

input#search:focus:not((disabled)){ box-shadow: none }

I added to the css
border-bottom: 1px solid #000000;

so now I have
input#search:focus:not((disabled)) { box-shadow: none; border-bottom: 1px solid #0a0a0a; }

Then I added it to my _extend.less file app/frontend/vendor/theme/web/cs/source
and it works as required but only for the search bar input. I would like to do it for all my input fields.

Please give me a tip on how to do it.

Thank you in advance.

unity – How can I fill the white color image to fill within that border in a shape of a glass?

There are a few ways on how you can do it. One way I could think of would be along the lines of:

  1. First prepare your glass. The outer part of your image should be transparent. The inner part of your glass should be a seperate image.
  2. Place them back on your canvas, you should see now just the glass with a white content.
  3. You can assign a color for the inner glass.
  4. The trick for filling your health (vertically I assume) is via the scale of the inner part. You need to change the anchor and pivot to bottom/ center (shift + lk in the rect transform) enter image description here

Example code could look like this

transform.localScale = new Vector3(1f, currentHitpoints / maxHitpoints, 1f);

Every time you have a change in your currentHitpoints, you would update the localScale of your inner glass. If you can have more HP than maxHp (some temporary or other mechanics) you need to clamp the value to 1f else it will overflow.
