200,000 cows, sheep, and other farmed animals crowded and packed together in sweltering conditions, starved to death on ships as their food ran out. They died a few months ago after waiting for the Suez Canal to reopen. Most of them came from Europe.
All of this is due to the live export trade. Animals inflicted unimaginable suffering crammed into ships and sent around the world, usually just to be slaughtered for meat and leather on arrival.

Da hat der #Argonerd wieder eine schöne Gegenüberstellung gemacht und mal wieder wird klar, welche Strategie die #Faktenerfinder vom zwangsgebührenfinanzierten #Qualitätsfunk so fahren... Danke.

I've just released Converse.js 7.0.6

npmjs.com/package/converse.js

It includes an OMEMO-related fix for a bug that on the surface appears bad (and embarrassing), but AFAICT it's relatively harmless.

However, to be on the safe side, please update and generate new keys (I'm sorry for the hassle).

More context here:
github.com/conversejs/converse

Now's a good time to point out that *all* OMEMO work on Converse was done in my free time without pay and the code has not been vetted by security researchers

“The public has a distorted view of science because children are taught in school that science is a collection of firmly established truths. In fact, science is not a collection of truths. It is a continuing exploration of mysteries.”

— Freeman Dyson

In February a prof from uni Hamburg published a paper in which he came to the conclusion that the Wuhan virus likely came from a lab. He was attacked by the media and so-called "fact-checkers" and his university apologized and distanced itself from his paper (of course they did 😒).

Now the tables are turning.

Good interview with him here (in German):

Why did China react with such extreme measures at the start of the pandemic? Perhaps they knew this was a lab creation.

#sxmo on the #pinephone is one of the coolest and most empowering computing experiences i had in a long while!

A tiled window-manager on a mobile computer sounds crazy? not as much as the unified uni-dimensional logic of mobile interfaces, all trying to mimick android/iOS...

The ethos of sxmo/pmOS is of minimalism (shell scripts, suckless, dwm, etc.) and user empowerment. So easy to build interface/menus/scripts that suit your need!

Never thought i'd be excited by computers so much again :)

They might as well call this the “Weird-ass-Anime” tab

Listening to Adam Curry (@adam) on the Joe Rogan show. He mentions Mastodon, federation, Ubuntu, Lubuntu, Gopher, LibreOffice, Claws mail, Pi-hole and @purism 🤓

Joe doesn't really get any of this, but still cool that it gets brought up.

Adam seems like a great guy as well.
