I finally got around to watching Leo Buscaglia - The Art of Being Fully Human youtube.com/watch?v=GmfWSQspSo and it's really extraordinary.

Thanks @bthall

"[...] large and complex financial institutions are [...] more likely to be bailed out. Moreover, authorities are found to be more prone to provide support to a distressed institution which is well-connected with politicians and political parties"

At the same time, "the quality of bank assets is found not to be relevant to the bailout likelihood": repec.bmth.ac.uk/bam/wp/BAFES1

This making the rounds here yet?

From Patreon: "We'd rather have our GMV be made up of fewer, but truly life-changed creators rather than a lot of creators making a few dollars." Well that tells me all I need to know about how much they actually care abt creators. brianbalfour.com/essays/patreo

A student in my class unwittingly presented a beautiful example of exploratory data analysis. I tried to explain that it's a great career skill in , but they kept misunderstanding what I was talking about. πŸ˜₯

I think that a key takeaway from studies is that those studies let you develop a hacker mindset that isn't overly particular to any one domain.

You know, if Liberpay made it easy for Patreon creators to transfer their patrons to their platform, they could become a force very, very quickly.

I aspire to be one of those memorable, crazy adults in a kids movie who are obsessed with bees, or baking or painting robins or something.

Is that odd?

If man begrudges his duties and gives over to pleasures, the downfall of radical change may be sown the moment that its critique moves from being fanciful to damning. In the election of one's constituents, one's throne may be secured.

If I were a Professor I might provide the incentive of playing A students in a game of SKATE, off-campus.

If "state of the art" is to "PhD-level understanding of X", what is to "undergrad-level understanding of X"? Base competence?

Do you think it's possible to build a researchers social network to share science papers, articles and bibliographic databases on a federated model? Maybe something using mastodon and ActivityPub. Of course, as free software! @Gargron boost plz

Interesting development on the bus: I think the sworn enemy of a lady is on the bus with her, and the enemy sat behind her and spouts out abusive stuff whenever the lady talks independently. She's interestingly respectful of the conversation of her enemy with others. Their feud is seemingly to be kept between them only, despite talking ill of her otherwise.

Found two morel at my usual spot, where I haven't seen any in months. Both were dried out. I'm not really any closer to understanding which habitats they prefer, so I have to kinda scour the area or stumble across them on accident (as happened this time).

With the new #Patreon payment structure, *patrons* pay a fee on top of their pledge, as well as patreon taking a (now smaller) cut from the creator's balance.

I made a little spreadsheet to help me work out what the heck was going on in actual numbers.

So if I'm supported by 50 $1 pledges, I get $47.50, but supporters pay nearly $70.
