Open source projects be like: we made a library that can add two numbers together but because of the generic scripting language allowed for the input can also be used to visualise molecular structures and we actively support that use case.

I don't understand how someone can be anti-vaxx and anti-lockdown at the same time. Surely being against Covid19 vaccines means you're pro-lockdown?

Two Pfizer shots: 1st I felt absolutely nothing, 2nd tired + slight headache for a day.

People who don't get vaccinated may get Covid19 as side effect with possible complications of lasting heart, lung, brain damage and sometimes death.

Some people have difficulty choosing...

People who have gotten vaccinated please share your experience so we can retweet. Aggressively.

The narrative of unconfirmed disproportionate horror stories is flooding the socials and it’s causing a lot of hesitancy.




After our vaccination shots, my husband & I had one other side effect of being responsible, considerate, compassionate, science enthusiasts who value life.



Star Trek has ALWAYS been political. Those politics were sometimes wrapped in allegory and metaphor, but Gene was never shy about making controversial statements. He designed ST to use s-f allegory to tell stories that wouldn't otherwise be allowed on network TV.



The fashion industry is a huge contributor to the climate-and ecological emergency, not to mention its impact on the countless workers and communities who are being exploited around the world in order for some to enjoy fast fashion that many treat as disposables. 1/3

When a post / tweet / status / toot / note / whatever pops up on your very personal screen, it may seem like you're the one being talked to and that a response is warranted. It isn't. Read / listen / learn. Don't insert yourself in a conversation you're not part of.


A little history rewriting in "Xena spin-off Hercules: The Legendary Journeys" that I like...

Lawless and O'Connor — who guest-stars on Lawless' crime dramedy My Life Is Murder — talk about potential 'Xena' reboot ideas, Xena and Gabrielle's status as queer icons, and more. ew.com/tv/xena-costar…



Beware of 'movements', they may be billionaire-funded influence campaigns. Here's one example.

Thinking about all the children whose parents made them social media accounts the day they were born and who put every waking moment online and how they’ll feel about it when they’re older.

I can’t imagine my younger years being publicized to thousands of people 😬



I'm at episode 4 and it's such a joy!

New article from the #Schmigadoon virtual press day! This time, @AaronTveit and @DoveCameron discuss how they were able to immerse themselves in the musicals world despite the craziness of COVID and real life in general.

Another thought about twitter culture towards artists: if you keep @'ing an artist and demanding their attention, when do you think they have the time or headspace to make new art?

I see some accounts on twitter that claim to be Jenna Ortega fans, but aren't. Some act obsessive and possessive. Some put improper posts in her @'s. Some profiles use the n-word and clearly don't share her values. Some of this may be an attempt to make the experience toxic. 1/4
My posts here are shared with twitter in both directions, but only top level posts. I realise that there is no link back to the thread so you can't find the other posts. The thread was specific to twitter, so it may not be of much interest here, so please just ignore it.

What we learned in 2020? That oil is worthless in a society without consumption. That healthcare has to be public because heath is public. That 50% of jobs can be done from home while the other 50% deserve more than they’re being paid. That we live in a society, not an economy.



#DeepFake videos are a disgusting phenomenon. A video of 'someone' I will not name is posted in some places. Please stop posting it, it is obviously #fake. The original video is with Veronica Rodriguez if you are inclined to check.



Color photography *did* exist before WWI. Sergey Mikhaylovich Prokudin-Gorsky began his journey to document early 20th-century Russia in 1909.

#TheFallout has been picked up by Warner Brothers for distribution worldwide (@hbomax and in cinemas). It is a film lead by @jennaortega (a revelatory and powerful performance they say) and the film won the main prize at SXSW.

FALSE: Contrary to myths circulating on social media, COVID-19 vaccines do NOT cause erectile dysfunction and male infertility.

TRUE: SARS-CoV-2, the virus that causes COVID-19, poses a risk for both disorders.

[Thread] 1/ This is a thread on Twitter manipulation around #Tunisia, where the current President is accused of instigating a coup. One Arabic trend translates as "Tunisians revolt against the Brotherhood". I analysed around 12000 tweets from 6800 unique accounts #disinformation

WARNING: CRUDE LANGUAGE
Being hit on and harassed as a woman, especially as a woman reporter out in the field, happens so often you learn how to roll with it or ignore it. This time it happened to be recorded only seconds before my hit. There are A LOT of things wrong with this.

LONG COVID THREAD:

The people running the BBC Horizon "Great British Intelligence Test" challenge on over 80,000 people took the opportunity to see if they could detect any differences by whether people had had covid or not...


It's ridiculous that this is even a poll question. We live in strange times. How are we ever going to explain this to future historians?

I'm trying to watch #Schmigadoon on @AppleTVPlus since it's out today and it has @DoveCameron in it. But I don't think Apple bought enough servers because I keep getting play back errors and dropping back to a low res stream. Must be a popular show.

#NL, pop. 17.6M, has gone from under 500 cases per day to >10,000 per day in less than 2 wks. This despite 65% being partially and 40% being fully vaccinated. They dropped their face mask requirements in most situations Jun 26, 21 following which the rise occurred.
