”… And there is more Labour can learn from the success of PR in Scotland, Wales and London. A recent report by the Electoral Reform Society looking at two decades of PR in Britain found that it produces much fairer outcomes for devolved elections in Scotland, Wales and London than ‘one party takes all’ First Past the Post…”
I just use the defaults at: https://github.com/LibreTranslate/LibreTranslate#run-with-docker
But they offer a number of customisations as well.
@email@example.com @twtxt (#ywqpb6a) Yeah, I always have the same problem with your /. replies. 🙂 But, as @firstname.lastname@example.org says, it’s just a matter an extra step to visit the whole conversation on your pod.
It’s funny, the things you hang on to. Reducing the attack surface ruthlessly, versus tinkering and having fun (while taking sensible precautions); that’s sort of the transition I’ve been going through, over the last year, in this new job.
(#5x7ewsa) Yeah, I’ll echo this: I have a rough budget, and if I like the project, I’ll spend the time tracking down their preferred method. I even bought Bitcoin for this purpose, on one occasion. (Not trivial!)
(#m6fesrq) Oops, missed some of the more recent replies on this before diving in. It’s great, how active yarn.social is these days. 😁
@email@example.com (#m6fesrq) Ha ha. I never thought about trying to securely serve it over the Internet. It occupies a space of quaint antiquity in my head now, @firstname.lastname@example.org, like the Cuckoo’s Egg, and even GeoCities now, I guess.
It does actually work between ^C club members – ctrl-c.club – though, which is pretty fun, and around the time when I revived it as a trope for my personal sites.
For the twenty-plus years of my career, though, it’s been a line item in your pentest report, not something for a howto. ;-)
@email@example.com Just works. @firstname.lastname@example.org has made more use of it than me, I believe, but, yeah, you’re just entering your code under your account settings. I changed the default fonts, so far. (#gk4ss7a)
(#25qamca) Luke Smith is great. Hadn’t watched him for ages. Subscribed, in NewPipe, now. 😁
(#wudsm7q) SES is socioeconomic status. I had to look that up. ;-)
Screen time and early adolescent mental health, academic, and social outcomes in 9- and 10- year old children: Utilizing the Adolescent Brain Cognitive Development (ABCD) Study
Katie Paulich et al.
PLoS ONE, September 2021
We investigate relationships between screen time and mental health, behavioral problems, academic performance, sleep habits, and peer relationships by conducting a series of correlation and regression analyses, controlling for SES and race/ethnicity. We find that more screen time is moderately associated with worse mental health, increased behavioral problems, decreased academic performance, and poorer sleep, but heightened quality of peer relationships. However, effect sizes associated with screen time and the various outcomes were modest; SES was more strongly associated with each outcome measure. Our analyses do not establish causality and the small effect sizes observed suggest that increased screen time is unlikely to be directly harmful to 9-and-10-year-old children.

I assumed this was about Tucker Carlson, based on the headline. Sadly, it’s about folks who really should know better.
Bloody minority Lib gov’t again. The longer I’m away from Canada, the less I like the lack of fixed election dates.
What a waste of time and resources.
(#25qamca) My wife was talking about a Guardian piece on it just last week. Can’t help feeling that this and bookface is the sum total of some folks exposure to tech. Not a great look!
Speaking of tildes, there’s a story on the front page now about the e-waste Bitcoin produces. As if the electricity requirements weren’t bad enough!
They’re one-time use, but I’ve got a few more if anyone else is interested.
What I like about his argument is the emphasis on the costs of getting this wrong: if we rely on unproven expertise, the costs can be horrific. And it isn’t like Afghanistan was an outlier, an anomaly. I believe there’s good evidence to suggest that, in the UK, the recession or recessions following the 2008 financial crisis wouldn’t have been so prolonged had the government not leaned in on austerity policy as it did; even from an economic point of view, it wasn’t a good decision. (I have strong opinions on austerity more generally, of course, but we needn’t cloud this point with what could be misconstrued as politics.)
That feels like an abdication of responsibility, to me.
See, on the surface, that’s sound advice. But, if ten million people decide to follow it over the next few days, can the GP surgeries cope? The government needs to be the source of clear, concise advice on this, backed by the best information we have, and transparently so.
(#76gq4oa) Oh really? I guess that’s my fault, adding that second hashtag. Re ideas, I was wondering about that Blog button, beside Reply: couldn’t we just treat a blog post like any other link? That we reply to, starting conversations?
(#kdffljq) Cool. I’ll check it out!
”… It seems to me that policy does tend to be overly trusting of elites and their status-gossip system, and overly punitive and disrespectful of rival groups. For example, policy pushes us to pick docs, lawyers, and other prestigious professionals based more on the prestige of their affiliations, and less on track records or incentives. Business does seem greatly overly regulated, and taxes seem overly punitive. And policy seems to rely too much on the consensus of elite gossip, relative to more accurate sources like experts or prediction markets…”
