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.

Men! Try out this new challenge that's going viral! It's the "don't give advice unless someone is ACTUALLY ASKING FOR ADVICE challenge!"

@bentosmile yep, I use Medisafe on android. It's a great app to avoid forgetting take my meds.

@sophia that's funny because I just installed Linux too.

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.

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.

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!)

@dredmorbius Sorry for the late answer. Subject is Europe and Middle East 5th-11th century. I'm in first year for a bachelor degree in History. I left school ten years ago. My degree is online only so I need to form new habits on how I learn.
