I just noticed "foreach" on npm is controlled by a single maintainer.
I also noticed they let their personal email domain expire, so I bought it before someone else did.
I now control "foreach" on NPM, and the 36826 projects that depend on it.
PSA: please do not use "religion" when you mean Christianity, abortion
Attempting to get ahead of the inevitable backlash: US abortion bans are not an expression of *religious* freedom. They are an expression of certain *Christian* views.
In Judaism, there are many cases where abortion is halachically mandated: https://www.jta.org/2019/05/22/opinion/what-jewish-law-really-says-about-abortion (a good overview from an Orthodox perspective) Banning abortion infringes upon Jewish religious freedom, so please don't say "religion" when you mean Christian.
The real trans agenda in regards to kids.
1: Respect your kid's identity
2: Keep them alive
news, USpol, Roe v. Wade (-----)
"The [U.S.] Supreme Court [will vote] to strike down the landmark _Roe v. Wade_ decision, according to an initial draft majority opinion written by Justice Samuel Alito circulated inside the court and obtained by POLITICO."
The *official* decision is not expected for another few months. Politico's source says 4 Republican-appointed judges are on board, the 3 Democratic-appointed ones opposed, and Roberts undecided.
While the outcome isn't surprising (the question was whether _Roe_ would be overturned outright, or chipped away like the Voting Rights Act), someone leaking the opinion to the press *is*; it indicates conflict behind the scenes.
Note to uterine-Americans: as anyone familiar with U.S. repro rights will tell you, the anti-choice movement's ultimate goal is banning birth control. Plan accordingly.
TIL the drum set was “the first bonafide American musical instrument.” Thanks, of course, to the creativity and ingenuity of black slaves. https://youtu.be/WkHmnUbUmIw
@nova I’ve been replaying to the post about want to quote, and then boosting my reply. The nice tuna about that approach is it reframes what I say, because it encourages me to always include the original poster’s perspective in what I say, while still adding context for folks who follow me.
Here's a post-mortem of what we saw on #Fosstodon over Monday and Tuesday with the influx of new members from Twitter.
Thought you fine folks would be interested in something like this.
Can we separate the idea of decentralization from crypto currencies and nft schemes... Something being decentralized has nothing to do with blockchain and cryptocurrencies but everyone seems to think that those two are the same thing. And can we also stop versioning web which has no versions and no single way to do any single thing. Crypto is not the future and even if it was not every website would need to use it. It's all just marketing bs for rich people to sell stupid people nothing but mist
A sincere tip for longtime fediverse people who would like their friends to stick around here longer than a week:
If you're on Mastodon or Hometown, you can click the "bell" icon in the profile of someone you follow. This will make it so that every time they post, it will appear in your notifications like an "@". I am enabling this temporarily for friends so that I remember to interact with them. This is important for making this place feel more lively and helps people stick around!
Another tip: Every Mastodon account has RSS built in. Just add .rss to the end of the URL for your account, e.g. firstname.lastname@example.org
That lets people follow your public posts from an RSS reader, but it's also useful if you wanted to use IFTTT to crosspost your public posts to another platform.
“But the 8-hour workday is too profitable for big business, not because of the amount of work people get done in eight hours (the average office worker gets less than three hours of actual work done in 8 hours) but because it makes for such a purchase-happy public. Keeping free time scarce means people pay a lot more for convenience, gratification, and any other relief they can buy. It keeps them watching television, and its commercials. It keeps them unambitious outside of work. We’ve been led into a culture that has been engineered to leave us tired, hungry for indulgence, willing to pay a lot for convenience and entertainment, and most importantly, vaguely dissatisfied with our lives so that we continue wanting things we don’t have. We buy so much because it always seems like something is still missing.”
