Only with a very high signal to noise ratio (e.g., high true R^2) can torturing data lead to a confession to something other than what the analyst wants to hear.

What can smartphone manufacturers do to ensure their phones are built to last? 📱 Glad you asked...we've got a list!

75% of a phone's total impact on global heating occurs during production. So, it makes sense that the longer you keep your phone, the more CO2 you avoid. 🌿

OH: “… when we started working on the data ingest pipeline, we found out he’d been keeping all his lab data in PowerPoint.”

“what”

“Years of it.”

“… I don’t even know what you do for a living, it hurt to be standing next to you when you said that.”

Who owns the products that you buy? If the answer is you, shouldn’t you be able to repair what you rightfully own? 🤔
At #Fairphone, we’re going against this make-use-dispose trend, by making modular phones that are durable and easy to repair. 📱🔩

Putting cat tree furniture and a dog kennel in your kitchen gives your pets appropriate spots to hang out and be a part of the action when folks are eating or cooking. Pets can be rewarded for staying in their spots when food is around so they actually want go to their spots when food is around. No more begging or counter-surfing.

The vast majority of plastic packaging produced and sold in Ontario and across Canada never gets recycled and most end up in landfills, burned for fuel or in the environment, according to a recent report commissioned by the Canada Plastics Pact.

Claws are made of keratin surrounding a bony core, called the ungual process, which is part of the last finger bone on each digit.

In cats, as demonstrated by this , the keratin sheath (right) is impressively long and curved compared with the bony core (left)!

Your #Android phone has a so-called Google advertising ID*, a unique number for your device. Using that, #tracking companies follow and record what you do on your phone, even across apps from different companies.

Luckily, you can now disable the advertising ID to make it harder for them to track you. We recommend doing this to everyone. Here's how it works.

*Unless of course, you’re using a google-free #LineageOS, #GrapheneOS or similar. :)

@movonw oooo, thanks for the tip! Excited to give this a try!

I started using #Matrix chat with mautrix-facebook bridge and it's a game changer: I use Element app to stay in touch with people who I was not able to migrate to Signal/Whatsapp, but staying away from Facebook apps. That's social network without social media 💪

And #Yunohost allows to install Synaptic and the bridge effortlessly, completely n00b friendly.

Pet loss, - - - 

@welshpixie I’m so sorry for your loss. It’s never easy. You’ve given him a great life ❤️
