Kommt mit dem Alter der Hang zu Verschwörungstheorien? Da passiert seit einer gefühlten Ewigkeit (also späte Achtziger, als ich aus meiner behüteten Landheimat in die Großstadt zum Studieren ging) sozusagen nichts in Sachen #Radverkehr​sförderung. Dann reden alle von E-Mobilität (auch in meiner Stadt - der Heimat von #Streetscooter und e.Go) und übersehen dabei, dass die Verkehrswende in Form von tausenden von #Ebike​s und #Pedelec​s längst da ist - und für den #Radverkehr tut sich... show more

@Sascha Ok, Du weichst der Diskussion, schade. Halten wir fest, daß wir unterschiedlicher Meinung sind. Ich weiß und kann es begründen, daß Radwege als Konzept grundsätzlich nicht funktionieren, jedenfalls nicht im Sinne des Radverkehrs. Du glaubst, daß das Problem nur die "aktuellen Fahrradwege und Verkehrsführungen" seien und hoffst auf ein utopisches "neues Verkehrskonzept", magst aber nicht weiter begründen, worauf sich diese Hoffnung stützt. Alle Evidenz und Erfahrung der Vergangenheit spricht dagegen. Aber wie gesagt, meine Meinung.

Für Deine großzügige Erlaubnis, nicht auf engen, schlecht gemachten bzw. schlecht erhaltenen Radwege zu fahren, bedanke ich mich herzlich. Allerdings nützt mir - und anderen Radfahrern, die verkehrsmäßig auf vorhandenen Fahrbahnen radfahren wollen - das in zweifacher Hinsicht nicht viel, siehe u.a. die bereits erwähnte Benutzungspflicht auch von offensichtlich schlechten und... show more

Wie gesagt machen Radwege nur dann Sinn wenn sie von der Qualität mit einer guten Straße zu vergleichen sind. Außerdem benötigt man sie nur an stark befahrenen Straßen, auf Radschnellwegen und auf Ausflugswegen. Auf ruhigen Straßen (da ist auch noch einiges machbar, aber mit anderen Ansätzen) braucht man sie nicht. Weil Du schlechte Erfahrungen mit den bisherigen Konzepten und ihrer Umsetzung gemacht hast, bedeutet das ja noch lange nicht, dass andere Konzepte bei entsprechender Umsetzung nichts taugen. Ich habe da mal schnell was grob skizziert um zu zeigen was ich meine:

Hier sieht man das der Radweg durch einen hohen Bordstein von der Straße getrennt ist. Sprich wenn nicht gerade der Radfahrer Mist baut, wird es sehr schwer f... show more

no se cómo tomarme esto del capitalismo, una encerrona? @zorrasbinarias https://gnusocial.net/attachment/2302797

@spectrumgirl porque??? como sois las femininja de suspicaces. cuando las cosas cambian gracias a vuestra lucha seguís sin fiaros jejeje El capitalismo hace mucho que esta desligándose del patriarcado en estos pequeños gestos. Nosotras tememos nuestro propio dinero. Fíjate en Barbie que ya puede ser doctora:))

@zorrasbinarias suspicaz o perspicaz :P, también tirar el capitalismo, en las capitales nos envuelven demasiado, vale pido mucho en poco tiempo :( aprenderé un poco a sentarme y limitarme a observar

:))

@spectrumgirl siempre se nos olvida que eres literal, era una broma anticapitalista:)) Lo que queriamos resaltar es que la causa feminista ha conseguido que el capitalismo deje de darnos mandatos en sus anuncios "depilate" y lo cambien por un TU DECIDES...... No es el único anuncio es mas, se nos ocurre que podiamos hacer una recopilación de Marcas que han cambiado. Por ejemplo Axe #publicidadbuena

@zorrasbinarias Si me permitís opinar, no se hasta que punto se le puede llamar victoria. El capitalismo solo le ha dado la vuelta para que siga siendo lo mismo. Sería como decir que la revolución cubana sigue viva porque en el Berska venden camisetas del Che @spectrumgirl

@demoakracia @spectrumgirl no querido la diferencia es que la camiseta es un objeto que puedes consumir o no. Pero nuestros cuerpos que hasta ahora han sido del sistema y propiedad del común, empiezan a no serlo. Ojo para vendernos algo que eso no lo negamos, pero hasta ahora se nos negaba en el discurso simbólico que pudiéramos elegir. Ese es el triunfo que a las publicistas les de vergüenza decirnos que solo seremos bellas si nos depilamos:))

@zorrasbinarias Pero es que lo siguen diciendo, con otras palabras. El marketing es 90% visual, el lema queda como refuerzo. Las imágenes siguen siendo las mismas, aunque el lema haya cambiado, creo yo. @spectrumgirl

@demoakracia @spectrumgirl @zorrasbinarias Me gustan estos debates y cuestionamientos. Pido permiso para meterme xD. Primero que nada no voy a cuestionar ni nada parecido a "la causa feminista". Si hablare a modo general de la adaptacion del marketing o mercadotecnia a los momentos sociales. El capitaslimo seria "la enfermdead", a lo que hacen referencia aca es a un "sintoma de esa enfermedad" EL Marketing. Que se basa en generar una necesidad. Yo no tomaria com "triunfo" (de ningunca causa noble, no solo feminimso) que quienes se encargan de diseñar publicidades se adapten a discursos o movimientos sociales que crecen en dimension. Es simplemente su manera de reinventarse. En algun momento se hacian publiciades de cigarrillos para niños, o cuanto se tardo en ver personas y discursos "no heterosexuales" en publicidad (tampoco se ve mucho). Y creo que "celebrar" estos "cambios" simplemente refuerzan la idea de como el marketing crea realidades a partir de sus discursos.

@spectrumgirl @zorrasbinarias @demoakracia Y no niego que el maketing con un nivel superlativo de medios "cree realidades" o "burbujas". Pero lo que se debe buscar no es adaptar estas falsas realidades y burbujas a discursos o estilos de vida nobles. SI no que se debe aspirar a que las personas seamos educadas para ejercer un pensamiento critico tal, que por mas que un cartel nos diga "compra Coca-Cola para ser feliz", no depositemos nuestra idea de felicidad en una gaseosa. xD

@spectrumgirl @zorrasbinarias @demoakracia O lo que es mas simple, instalarnos un buen bloqueador de publicidades mental para no caer en la telaraña de la publicidad xD

Peter Fonda, ‘Easy Rider’ Actor and Screenwriter, Is Dead at 79 - The New York Times

There were so many motorcycle movies made in the ‘60s and ‘70s like “The Wild One” with Brando. This movie hardly was a glorification of motorcycles.

People are stupid and often find the worst and most inappropriate time/place to say the stupid on their minds...facts be damned!

Federal Judge Holds Entire US Attorney’s Office in Contempt of Court

A federal judge on Tuesday issued a scathing ruling in which she held the entire Kansas U.S. Attorney’s Office (USAO) in contempt of court after finding prosecutors unlawfully listened to attorney-client conversations and likely destroyed evidence to cover up their wrongdoing.

Kansas Democrat Barry Grissom’s Senate campaign doomed by tenure as U.S. attorney


https://www.kansascity.com/opinion/editorials/article234083487.html

It would make me very happy if the judge in the case were a Democratic appointee.

Dems are clearly missing an opportunity in KS, thanks to Barry.

“There was no support from the U.S. attorney, (who) basically wanted to stick his head in the sand and go out and get his picture taken and maybe run for office someday,” he added.
🎯
“I can’t wave a wand and make someone tell me the truth,” he continued. “You have to have some faith in your people that they’re not lying to you, or hiding things from you.”
Can you even interrogate, bruh? Not a good look for an elite prosecutor.
If he didn’t know about the inappropriate behavior of his staff attorneys, he failed as a supervisor and a manager.

If he did know, and did nothing to stop it, he’s complicit in a serious breach of ethical standards.

Either way, Grissom’s record suggests he lacks the qualifications and character to serve as a U.S. senator.
.... well, technically that makes him unsuitable to be an executive. A "group" job like senator might fit him better.

Sadly for him, though, it looks like he's jumped the shark---and happily for his potential constituents, they have probably dodged a bullet.

Pretty much every one who does a playthrough with the Minecraft mod 'Localised Weather and Storm Fronts' make Tornado chasing the main goal of their series, and fortifying villages from tornadoes.

I wish more would do Tropical Cyclones, when ever I play the mod I settle on a Tropical Island to watch Tropical Cyclones as they pass by, or settle on a costal village.

Tropical Cyclones are far coller than tornadoes (though I may be a little bias giving storm chasing irl I prefer Tropical Cyclones). like seriously hurricane proofing a coastal village i that mod is more fun than chasing Tornadoes around the map.

this was the backbone of telecommunications infrastructure

Bingo. It's a switchboard. In this case, probably one out of an office or a hotel for their internal phone system (because it looks too clean and new to have been a phone company switch board.)

Neat!

There was an antique store in Cleveland GA that had a much dirtier, uglier one last year that I desperately wanted.
@Ethancdavenport

I've been thinking about this all morning, and I kind of want to build a switchboard now.

Damn it, I don't have time for that.

if you have $1100 and a pickup truck that can make it to Alabama, you won't have to build one!!

I mean, I do have those things, but I'm in VA. That's a long drive and a high price for a switchboard.

... plus, where would I put it?

Welcome to the TUESDAY #CheckIn for Aug 20


Hello everyone, I'm new to this. This is my first week spearheading the #CheckIn for ya'll, but hopefully we can have some fun and I won't get too stressed trying to keep up. I'm a writer, filmmaker, wee comedian, sometimes singer, and other things mostly entertainment related. And in that vein, I thought it would be fun if the first week I tried this we had some entertainment related questions.

QUESTION: Yesterday we discussed three things we'd tell our teenage selves, if we could go back in time. This is a sequel to that (😜). Since we don't have time travel, what do you do or could you do to bring those 3 revelations to other young people? It's dangerous to go alone! T... show more

I always talked with younger people about the three things I gave yesterday. Especially my 4 grandkids. They are topics that often never come up within one’s own family of origin. So just talking about things adult-to-adult with younger people works when you have respect for each other. I’ve found this in teaching as well. Younger people are so surprised that an adult will talk about things they wonder about and they will listen well. Of course, timing is key.

A very important point, although for now we're still missing the new narrative, the new story to talk to the downtrodden, the left behind (no, it's not Corbyn, that's also an old story rehashed).

A big filter and one of those magnetic wiper things make cleaning easy. Biggest problem I have is figuring out what to do with all those fish that make whoopie all the time!

That’s true. They have much better filtration systems now @Samuel Smith. It’s been my experience that some of the whoopie making fish eat their babies. 😱



 
When trying to convince an open source project to change something subjective, especially design-related, avoid overly-criticizing the thing you’re trying to change. The folks you’re talking to *made that thing* and likely think it’s pretty good; calling it shit doesn’t help.



 

Mass shootings have changed how 1 in 4 adults live, poll finds

One in 3 adults said they agreed “strongly” or “somewhat” with the statement “Fear of a mass shooting prevents me from going to certain places and/or events,” according to the survey.

Not I, but then that's more a condition of where I live vs how I live...guys walking through the local supermarket with open-carry pistols on their hips is a thing here...like, common and doesn't seem to bother anyone.
