I’m probably going to move to an intensely rural area inside five years.

Only reason for the delay is to get as many ducks in a row before I leave this transitional life between the technical and humanistic worlds of work behind.

I'm starting to think there will be business opportunities that are branded as "AI-free" much like food is branded Organic.

I'm already starting to look for products like that.

It's the same rationale for why my refrigerator doesn't need to be connected to the internet. Or why my hammer doesn't need to ask me about my day when I take ot out of the toolbox.

Our predecessors were not all monsters about trans and queer people.

Yeah there was expletive Springer and his ilk sensationalizing but culturally there were moments like this that disprove the lies.

A friend recommended a newsletter for executives in tech and today's issue had a link to a blog post advising tech leaders on how to get better at asking questions. It had this... illustration...

I am confident the author had no idea how much this graphic torpedoed my trust in them. I am realizing that often people who use AI art don't understand how art works

Fighting an invisible illness: The curse of Long COVID. By Milanda Rout

"Exhaustion, erratic heartbeat, brain fog, pain: women aged 31 to 45 are contracting Long COVID in greater numbers than any other part of the population. Why?"

Here’s an out there theory.

First, fibro, ME/CFS, and other have a neuropsychoimmunological component.

The societal burdens placed on women, in addition to a general medical bias against women’s health issues, make small issues become big ones and make big issues ignored far too often.

Second, the age.

There’s a physiological shift in most humans near age 34. That shift may be causal to higher vulnerability to PIS.

What embarrasses you the most?

Aphrodite,
@Aphrodite@chaos.social avatar

@RickiTarr

My struggles.

It’s a foolish thing to be embarrassed by.

I can’t help my history. I can’t help that I was abused. I can’t help that I was taught, with cruel words and crueler fists, that I am Wrong, that I am unworthy, that I don’t deserve affection or nice things.

I struggle daily with self sabotage. I dissociate and freeze when I’m challenged.

And I know I’m getting better, ever so slowly.

It’s still hard.

curious what kind of music you hear.

Long day behind me.
Another long week ahead.
Maybe with some luck
I’ll get out of my own head.

Long night behind me.
Another long day to dread.
Wish the one I love
Was here, sleeping in my bed.

Another sleep, another wake up
The clock keeps ticking by
Another ring, another made up
Reason to let time fly….
Another fear, another downed cup
Of cheap booze and caffeine
Another day, another fake buck
Wonderin’ what it all means…

I’ve been crafting a series of shorts focused on a person who time treats almost like a healer and whom time heals in return.

They operate namelessly out of humility and to leave as little a trace as possible.

No blue boxes smaller on the outside are involved.

I'm on an unrestricted variable electricity tarrif.
My price per kwh is about to go negative for 3 hours*

I can get my oven and air con unit to fight each other, and be paid for it!

*it's so windy that there's nowhere to put all the energy the turbines are generating, so they pay (mostly industry) to use it up. The price shoots up in the evening when everyone starts putting their heating on and cooking dinner. People on a fixed price tarriff are paying ~25p/kWh all day in the UK right now.

@mattgrayyes

I’m happy with my fixed rate CAD 0.10 (€0,068; £0.058) tariff where we have a vertically integrated crown corp generating 95% of its power carbon free at point of production (CFAPOP).

My friends in Montreal are happy with their CAD 0.067 (€0,045; £0.039) with their vertically integrated crown corp generating even higher CFAPOP percentage.

Privatisation makes us worse off.

Worse, encouraging consumption like this is a Jevons paradox. Needless use encourages more use.

"Get over yourself

“Those are the two choices. It's kind of like, one is old and effective and compassionate, has a heart, and really cares about people. And one is old and has been charged with 91 felonies.

"I don't understand why this is even a hard choice."

She’s right.

@flexghost

And she is delivering a hard message in an antiempathetic way, which was her problem eight years ago as well.

This feels like telling a cancer patient to “get over it.”

I’m saying this as a soon to be candidate. I am using empathy and compassion as the foundations of my campaign, highlighting the work the party I’m upping with has done to improve the lives of my neighbours. Browbeating them is the opposite of helpful.

March 31 was already significant to me because that's the day in 1998 when I helped Navigator become .

Now this day has a whole new meaning for me as a woman. And it's my first that I celebrate publicly since coming out to everyone on June 21 of last year.

To all my siblings, I see you. Even if complete visibility isn't possible for you right now. You still matter. You're still loved. And you're still trans. Never doubt that. 🏳️‍⚧️🫂💖

Time to send up the flag and a call for help.

Someone I know in the who’s and that is a victim of domestic violence. I need to connect that person to resources that can help her get the person assaulting her out of her life.

Fortunately, she is the only one with a legal right to live at her residence. Unfortunately, the abuser is threatening to escalate things.

Apart from calling the police, what other orgs are in the GTA that I can refer her to?

Serious question:

I’m attempting to improve tous les langues καταλαβαίνω.

Other than that damned green bird that threatened to break my knees when I skipped lessons in Portuguese, what low to no cost, nonreligious resources can one access for the following languages (not at the same time!)

  • Français (de l’académie ou du Québec)
  • Deutsch (Österreichisch oder Deutsch)
  • Español (mexicana, puertorriqueña, cubana)
  • العربية القياسية
  • עברית קלאסית ומודרנית
  • संस्कृत
  • گورمکھی اور اردو

Most USians don’t recognize that there are significant dialectal differences within the USA much less with Canadian, British, Scottish, Hiberno, Australian, Aotearoan, Indian, Singaporean, South African, Caribbean English.

This chart is really interesting to me, because it's something I've been thinking about lately. People of all ages have different kinds of intelligence, and perspectives to offer no matter the age.

Interestingly, my info processing speed has increased as I’ve gotten older, I’m both incapable of associating faces with names yet have hyperfamiliarity for faces, and I would almost line to get rid of some of the obscenely high empathy I have as it literally hurts.

Aphrodite,
@Aphrodite@chaos.social avatar

@RickiTarr

I think it’s probably tied into the AuDHD and obscenely high empathy.

Names can get in the way of connecting with another person, oddly enough.
