This is a difficult problem to solve.

Starving the entire population, half of which are children, is an inhumane solution. If it is too effective, it becomes the final solution.

Any other greens feel under attack recently from democrats in the United States?

I’m voting green because if democracy is ‘on the ballot’ then I figure it’s the choice I actually believe in and not just the slightly lesser of two evils. And so recently I feel targeted by democrats and its getting kind of weird and I was wondering if any other greens are experiencing the same thing in the US. I’m...

Congrats on giving Republicans one extra vote.

They impeached him over being a Democrat. That is all.

Micropayments would scale at a ridiculous rate like microtransactions in games have, so your $20 example would be at least $200 in reality by now.

I will be registering elsewhere to see if the experience is any better. I really like the overall direction and design of kbin, but things have been dragging on updates and improvements.

For example, my settings are identical as far as I can tell between desktop and mobile, but my mobile feed is generally hitting day old on the first page while desktop has several pages of more recent content. I walked through the settings side by side and they appear identical.

But I haven't reported it or searched to see if someone else has because of the absence making the effort to document and report less urgent.

I'll keep my account of course and keep an eye out if it picks back up because do like the browser based interface and the combo of lemmy and mastodon in a single feed.

Am on the tail end of Gen X and when I started working even low pay allowed me to afford a place to live, food to eat, and doing fun things occasionally. While work sucked, it at least paid the bills and allowed the freedom to live. Plus there were still some companies that offered actual long term perks, tried and keep people with experience around, and promoted from within.

Gen Z still gets the low pay, but are treated as expendable, and can't afford anything and so it is understandable that they would hate working in comparison.

Calm down.

I get angry because of frustration about things beyond my control that impact me negatively and can't simply be ignored. Knowing that extra step is great and all, but doesn't reduce the frustration or the anger. I'm sure that identifying the difference is helpful to some people who can ignore or address the actual cause of their anger.

Note: I don't get angry about frustrating things that I can do something about, or can be ignored.

They know, that is why they don't want Putin to participate. Having him spout his unchallenged thoughts daily is what they want.

That is why the antiwar candidate was disqualified from running.

This is the first time for me as well, and it sounds likely to be the last.

Candyman and Bloody Mary only work if you believe :P

Elderly Alaska man is first reported person to die of recently discovered Alaskapox virus (www.seattletimes.com)

The man was undergoing cancer treatment and had a suppressed immune system because of the drugs, which may have contributed to the severity of his illness, the bulletin said. It described him as elderly but didn’t provide his age....

Someone with a compromised immune system dying of a disease that has mild symptoms in the five other people who have ever been diagnosed with the disease is the opposite of terrifying.

When they make low effort cosmetics they are both restricting features that could be in the game and incentivizing themselves to prohibit a modding community that adds a ton to games for free.

Up next, watching the shit fingers in the House fail to pass the legislation they asked for.

How Spoutible’s Leaky API Spurted out a Deluge of Personal Data (www.troyhunt.com)

Ever hear one of those stories where as it unravels, you lean in ever closer and mutter “No way! No way! NO WAY!” This one, as far as infosec stories go, had me leaning and muttering like never before. Here goes: Last week, someone reached out to me with what

Ahhhh, I was.wondering why they would take the time to set up an API with that data and forgot that almost everything has a way to just dump things into it without needing to be set. I forget because where I work we actively avoid that approach because of risks like this.

How does employing a rapist not constitute an unsafe work environment for female employees?

So I just discovered that I have been working next to the waste of oxygen that raped my best friend several years ago. I work in a manufacturing environment and I know that you can’t fire someone just for being a sex offender unless it directly interferes with work duties (in the US). But despite it being a primarily male...

If they didn't do it they get the same 'not guilty' verdict, so what is the recourse for someone who was falsely charged?

I am specifically thinking of the US where there are a lot of black men falsely convicted of violent crimes they did not commit because of racist eye witness testimony or even victims who blame a random black person to avoid social stigma and prosecutors who want higher conviction rates.

A lot of common media used the weights of replicas from the Victorian Era that were thicker and more rigid because that takes less time and effort since they were meant for display. Sometimes they even included the weight of the sheath!

How about instead of a buffer zone we just make Russia stay within its own borders?

This is how social systems work.

Forcing minorities off transportation/out of businesses/etc. was also how racist social systems work. Sure, society has improved enough that it is currently more likely to have bad actors be the ones being excluded now, but history shows that socially enforced norms can be used for good and evil.

Not to mention that not everyone has fingers.

HELPS REDUCE ODORS – Keeping your boots, shoes, and gloves dry is the key to keeping them stink-free. Dry time Warm-up (30 mins); Damp (8 hours); Wet (12 hours).

Great suggestion!
