So... I created a @pixelfed account : @KrisO. You can expect photos of museums and cities visited, and landscapes too.

Good article about the suppressed contributions of women in science. While I would optimistically like to think that most people know about Rosalind Franklin's contribution to the discovery of the structure of DNA now, the problem goes much deeper.

Someone on Twitter mentioned that in some regions of Germany, a common idiom for whenever there's mist in the forest is "The foxes are making coffee", and thought the image was evocative enough for an illustration.

Well, I took the bait! 🦊☕

Calling all #Fediverse admins of instances in the #EU. The #CopyrightDirective is coming, we need to show the MEPs how massively the EU Internets will be affected.

We are preparing a list of all EU-based #Pleroma, #Mastodon, #GNUSocial, #Peertube, #Funkwhale, and any other instances.

Please *contact me*. All I need is the domain name, which EU Member State it's located in, and the rough topic of the instance. Approximate user count welcome, but not necessary.

Please help. This is important.

Fediverse, I need your help. Do you know any person of color who wrote on race and racism with a materialist perspective?
Boost appreciated.

If you ever think you have poor judgement, please remember that the 1908 editor of Puck magazine thought this image was a sick burn against suffragettes.

En 1880, dans les Hautes-Alpes, un menuisier cache un récit autobiographique sous le plancher qu’il était en train de poser dans un château. Sachant qu’il ne sera pas lu avant cent ans, il se livre et n’épargne personne dans le village, offrant une peinture acérée des mœurs de son temps. youtu.be/WLhZn90L1kw

that hermione granger is black really puts the fact that she's the only person in the UK opposed to slavery in a different light huh

Today, I study the last century of the Roman Republic.

A good productive day of studying. :BatteryOkay:👍
It feels very satisfying.

@sophia
We've almost ruined videogames and the internet by filling it with #women in what I like to call 'digital white genocide', but this is only the beginning.

The next step: #women in the KERNEL; women in the CLOUD; #women in your PHONE and on your SERVER. Nowhere will be safe!

Would 5 people be willing to back up my UK Parliament petition to provide a Nest-like scheme for installing sound insulation in the homes of low income people for free?

(I’m autistic and struggling with the noise from my neighbours and the shop below!)

This is a SOS.
I'm taking an online course but I don't know how to study. I mean it literally.
The material is a 100 pages pdf. Obviously I can't learn everything in it. I don't know how to find a way to study that works for me. Should I just read it again and again or take notes while reading, or doing mind mapping (but then how do I choose what is important to know)...
What I'm asking is what is your own method to study? Do you have any tips on how to find my own way ?

Finals are finished. At last. Now, onto the second term with ancient history (Rome 😍) and medieval history (Byzance 🙂). Oh and some modern art history (Rubens and co).

Ok i have a #Academic #School question + need advice?
I haven't been in a math class (and school) in more than a year. I am now taking a college algebra course, and i'm doing... ok? It just started, and there are some things I remember but there's a lot of blanks. I can solve certain things, but without really knowing why (which I know will screw me over once exams start)
My question is, do I take some time right now since the semester started to refresh, or just go along with the course?
😭
