Facebook colludes with the Pakistani government to silence "blasphemers" and critics of the state.
Money breeds both softness and callousness. It cripples your coping skills for life’s obstacles while extinguishing any empathy needed for navigating society and social relationships.
The last post I received from Chris Webber linked to an update he wrote on HN that basically suggested MediaGoblin is a dead project. Which is a shame, because there's a need for a media server that focused on curated collections/ galleries (eg all the talk videos, photos, slides, and paper, from Conference X), rather than feeds (#PixelFed, #PeerTube etc). He also said the federation code is almost done. Is there anyone out there keen to take over as maintainer?

Yes, the corporate state needs young bodies as fodder for the bloated military and endless foreign wars. Yes, it needs workers, especially a surplus of workers, to toil in menial, poorly compensated labor. Yes, it needs consumers to buy its products. [...] If women refuse to produce children at levels desired by economic planners, Brown says, then abortion and contraception will be banned or made difficult to obtain.
One of my favorite ways to write a computer program is to write in plain english outline form what it's going to do, paste those notes into my code as comments, and then fill in the space in between them. Especially good for a project where I'm working piecemeal over multiple days, it's very easy to come back and pick up where I left off.
An oldie, but good example of code switching. C’est like that à Montréal!

Just posting this here so i don't waste my time arguing with friends of friends on facebook.
The act of milkshaking far right wing candidates is clearly working. The media is all over it because they love reporting about far right candidates for the clicks and now they have a new thing to talk about. It makes the candidates look foolish, cheap and weak and it makes people read up on why people don't like them. Public humiliation works very well against the far right.
