English has three sets of words that communicate "this place" : "that place" : "what place". Each meaning can be paired with one of three prepositions ("in", "to", and "from") to form a specialized locative word:
"in" - here : there : where
"to" - hither : thither : whither
"from" - hence : thence : whence
So "here" means "in this place"; "thither" means "to that place"; "whence" means "from what place"; etc.
#introduction Hello, I am interested in linguistics, electromagnetics, propulsion and ancient religions. Degrees in law, history, and philosophy. Science Fiction & Fantasy author, freelance lawyer and history teacher. Looking to make some connections and flesh out my RSS reader with interesting sources of articles on the above subjects.
Especially interested in good novels and articles about #colonization, from both a hard science and a wild-speculation or historic perspective.

and yes, science is a "creative profession"; don't let anybody tell you otherwise! problem-solving requires creativity, and scientists sure do a lot of problem-solving.
in behavioral science specifically, we're always developing new ideas of how unseen constructs govern our daily lives, as well as new ways to test those constructs. creativity is essential for that.

I've read that some folks sync their elfeed state across multiple machines by putting ~/.elfeed/ under git and then pulling as necessary, but I only use that setup for backup purposes; SSH suffices for me.
Oh, and I set up a cron job to update it on a fixed schedule, and installed a hook that uses DoIt to spawn tabs in my Firefox instance on Windows.
Mastodon, can we play a game?
You describe an animal badly, and I draw exactly what you described.
(Do not tell me what the animal is. I will not try to guess. Please tell me AFTER I finish the drawing.)

Scholar Social is a microblogging platform for researchers, grad students, librarians, archivists, undergrads, academically inclined high schoolers, educators of all levels, journal editors, research assistants, professors, administrators—anyone involved in academia who is willing to engage with others respectfully.
We strive to be a safe space for queer people and other minorities in academia, recognizing that there can only be academic freedom where the existence and validity of interlocutors' identities is taken as axiomatic.

Scholar Social features a monthly "official" journal club, in which we try to read and comment on a paper of interest.
Any user of Scholar Social can suggest an article by sending the DOI by direct message to @email@example.com and one will be chosen by random lottery on the last day of the month. We ask that you only submit articles that are from *outside* your own field of study to try to ensure that the papers we read are accessible and interesting to non-experts.
