You asked what is the correlation. That could mean a characterization of results, raw data, or anything in between. Since you said you would carry a gun if everyone else is, I opted for a characterization since that logically means that you think carrying guns keeps individuals safer.


The correlation has been clear since way before the increase. Carrying guns increases gun violence AND that violence is directed disproportionately at women and people of color.


If something is slippery or waterproof it is has a very good chance of containing some sort of PFAS. They are in clothes both as part of fabric and waterproof coating. The same goes for upholstery and carpets. Also in makeup. They are used in nonstick pans and in a ton of food packaging. They are everywhere. I agree that manufacture needs to stop and think DuPont et al need to pay for cleanup at the very least.


::Spoiler:: It doesn’t really waste half the energy, but the way it shifts energy around is interesting.


Very real. I work in remote places where I have to find high ground, stand on my truck, and hold my phone as high as possible just to get SMS in/out. There is no reason to expect there will ever be anymore towers up there, so data or even calls are a no go.


We need someone to start a citizen funded, billion dollar trial though to prove the materials work. Enter SteElon ™ wheels maybe?


Hmm, then for the busiest roads we could strap a bunch of cars together and have them accelerate and brake as a single unit to save space.



Phones out in public?! Finally, I don’t have to lug this cell phone around anymore. -Futurama


Yep, private 1st class if we work hard after being drafted.


Are both answers truthful, logical, and accurate?


I know you’re just kidding, but it is interesting to think about how truly successful the chili has been. We’ve moved them around the world and bred tons of variety into them. It could be that chilis co-evolved with humans to our mutual benefit.


will receive at least 3 years of software updates

Not good enough. 5 years of security updates is a min for me on a project like this where you will never find anyone else with an official OS build. 10 years should be the standard, but that’s a lot to hope for from software or hardware.


Cared for and tended endangered ecosystems.


Comitted to helping another person find themself. Not guiding, not shaping, just helping with the only motive being that their life satisfaction increases.


Yeah, afaik it is not widely used by the Spanish speaking community here either unless there is an intersection with queerness and/or English speaking. Also, it is not a new term at all, but it seems to be used more lately.


It is a gender-free alternative for Latino/Latina. In English speaking communities in the US it is pronounced as “latin ex.”


It is interesting to me that the conversation here is focusing on how to help obese people lose weight and not on the relationship dynamic between patients and doctors this NY Times article gives reasons why overweight people distrust doctors.

Research has shown that doctors may spend less time with obese patients and fail to refer them for diagnostic tests. One study asked 122 primary care doctors affiliated with one of three hospitals within the Texas Medical Center in Houston about their attitudes toward obese patients. The doctors “reported that seeing patients was a greater waste of their time the heavier that they were, that physicians would like their jobs less as their patients increased in size, that heavier patients were viewed to be more annoying, and that physicians felt less patience the heavier the patient was,” the researchers wrote.


Physician assistant, Nurse practitioner, Registered nurse. They are different types of medical certifications, but I don’t know the differences between them.


I mix it up, but I absolutely guarantee that my last bite will be my favorite thing.


Need help choosing a Funkwhale (and other fediverse) instance(s)
I am looking to just dip my toes on a couple of other platforms. What I am finding while trying to choose an instance for Funkwhale (or Friendica, Pixelfed, etc) is that there is very little in the way of descriptions for finding something to match me and I would just be choosing at random. I am using the official sites' server recommendations/lists to look through and am really getting no info that is helpful to me. Does anyone know of other resources? My best option at this point is to use a throw away account to get on any server then spend just enough time interacting to find a good one and try to join it. Does that seem reasonable?

Opinions on Divested Computing Group
Does anyone have experience with this organization (https://divested.dev)? There isn't any footprint I can find of them outside their repos and message boards. I am specifically interested in their general credibility and legitimacy. To a lesser extent, I'm interested in views of their effectiveness at enhancing privacy and/or security.

Looking for a new mobile OS
I have been running lineageOS on my OnePlus 2. I liked it, but Lineage has stopped supporting my phone. There are two options that I have been able to find as replacements - postmarketOS and /e/OS. Any thoughts on those or other recommendation? Anything that gets security updates, is open source, and is functional meets my needs.

Firefox banned at work
Do any of you have thoughts on a business case for continued use of Firefox for an individual? Why? My employer is moving to uninstall all instances of Firefox on company computers for 'security reasons' in favor of Edge and Chrome. I would be allowed to keep it if I could make a business case for it. There is no legit reason why I can't get my work done with another browser, but I am going to push hoping just being a squeaky wheel is good enough. My guess is folks on here will have clearer thinking on this than me. Does anyone out there think my IT dept is making a good decision?

Mid level knowledge
It is easy to find articles and guides designed for laypeople. If you know the right keyword, it is just as easy to find professional/expert level papers and articles. I have noticed that this is the case across fields. Is that what other folks experience? Where do you go for information when laypeople articles are too basic, but every expert level article is beyond you?
