I kinda didn’t get/lowkey disliked CWs on this platform, but now I totally get/appreciate them, especially after browsing other social media on a controversial news day.

It's like magic. Try it.

Here's some recommendations

In the first update for 16 years, the guideline limit for the most damaging pollution – tiny particles from burning fossil fuels – has been halved

The Lecturer's Union at UM has started bargaining

"LEO includes 1,696 non-tenure track professors from the Ann Arbor, Dearborn and Flint campuses. The union is looking to improve their contract through the upcoming negotiations. Some of the proposals on the bargaining platform include more flexible COVID-19 policies for mode of course instruction, increased pay, pay parity across all three University campuses and greater participation in University governance."

@DoctorZen That makes sense. I look forward to checking them out. Maybe I’ll write a hoax article citing only those articles.
