Hello friends. If you're interested in the best and worst of science reporting online then I have a shiny new thing for that. The thing is a newsletter and you can read it below.

First thing I wrote about was how a non-story about nitrous oxide became a story that drove a ton of outrage on the web.

ethics, studying First Nations issues 

Friend (who is white) was approached by a student from a European uni doing research related to Indigenous communities in Aus.

Their ethics approval went through their European system, but how could a Euro uni conscientiously approve this type of thing? And little things like no local contact number etc.

Aus unis for all their faults take this stuff seriously. Anyway she's going to Ask Questions.

@swaggboi I really want a "dumb" appliance store. My fridge should keep things cold, my toaster warm things up, my printer put ink on thin slices of dead tree, and my TV show whatever video stream I send it. None of these need to reach out over the network. Please sell me well made, well functioning, single use devices, that serve their purpose well.

Popular Science, 2nd Law, Quantum Information 

This was a very enjoyable read. ❤️


"Physicists Rewrite the Fundamental Law That Leads to Disorder
Philip Ball

May 26, 2022

The second law of thermodynamics is among the most sacred in all of science, but it has always rested on 19th century arguments about probability. New arguments trace its true source to the flows of quantum information."

My paper about researching the far right online has been ACCEPTED!!!

I have some minor edits to do. Can't wait.
The paper is about how researching the far right and lurking in their spaces impacts me as a researcher - both academically and as an activist.

Hi, I am a nearly half a century old Dutch person who is overwhelmed a lot of the time.
I am dedicated to working decades of old trauma out of my rickety body. When I get rid of the all-pervasive fear I'll hopefully start painting again, which made me feel like everything was right with the world. For now I'm creatively constipated and trying to navigate through the fog in my head. (It's hard to find words.)

Would like to follow un-normal people who are as inconsistent as I am. One day post photos of cats, food or moss, next day rage against the government's herd immunity policy, only to be quiet and thoughtful the next. 
Sometimes I actually manage to say something insightful or funny.
Mostly I'm looking for a place where it's safe to be me until the fear which has ruled my life is gone. Then everywhere will be safe.

Discussions in Germany about after recent occurence of |s in Germany.

So I wanted to know how many tornadoes occured per year in the past. And there is a DLR manuscript with >100 years historic record

Let's say, also Germany sees regulalry tornadoes emerging. Did the frequency change with time? Not sure whether historic sources (less reporting?) can be used to deduce anything on this matter...
