What are some other things movement can offer for remote workers?


"Using 2018 data, the study authors found that by midcareer, those who completed a union construction apprenticeship were making an average hourly wage of $40, while those who obtained a bachelor's degree were making $35 per hour. Both 1st-year union ($19 per hour) and nonunion ($17) workers had a higher hourly wage than those with high school diplomas."

Union construction apprenticeships give you 40$/hour job, why are democrats pushing people to college instead and never talk about this??

people, what is the current recommended setup for emacs? I've tried the spacemacs layer and a lot of things broke, hie didnt work too. now using lsp related modes with ghcide but the ui does not work. Maybe switch to vscode?

its been a while since I lasted posted here, instead of simply boosting. a lot happened, i've been a college teacher, artificial intelligence resident, data scientist and now studying for phd applications. one year and a half in an awesome relationship 😃 . good times, now going to quarantine with my girlfriend in a nearby beach since we both are in the risk group (smokers, asthmatic, and so on) :TwinPines:

So I decided to learn some #CommonLisp. I stayed away from it up until now because I don't like mutability and imperative languages, but I found out about packages like Alexandria, Serapeum, Sycamore, folio2 and `modf` that allow writing functional and immutable Common Lisp.
Now the problem is that I don't know where to start. The libraries seem to be aimed at experienced Common Lispers who want to switch to a functional style and there are no guides for functional Common Lisp.

thinking about the narrative that we constantly have to do things we hate so that we'll be prepared for retirement (wasting 3/4ths of our lives to have a cushy final chunk), and then how capitalism keeps raising the retirement age

somehow i feel like this might be some kind of scam :thinking_upsidedown:

Avoiding implicit behaviors and special cases are the two most important factors when it comes to writing maintainable code.

In the last week I've started moving my calendars 📆 , contacts 👫 and email ✉️ off of Google

It really feels like coming to the end of an abusive relationship 💔 It was worse than I liked to admit, and it's easier to leave than I thought 👋

Thanks so much to the #Nextcloud, #Thunderbird, #Dav5X and #LineageOS people for making this possible! And thanks to my techie buddies who helped me out. Look to your local hacklab for help if you need it! You can do it!

brazilpol, request for help for friends that need it 

This is a long shot, but if anyone here knows how to seek expedited immigration or asylum from Brazil into the EU, that information is urgently needed by friends of mine.

Capsule version: they have credible fear or persecution and harm under Bolsonaro, and any information that can get them out of harms way as they try to flee would be incredibly valuable right now.
