Dear . I work as an and design buildings that harm the planet. I am looking for a practicing who can teach me building energy modelling using tools. I have a background in software dev, run and am willing to learn down to the details.

I do not have a background in heat transfer or thermodynamics, which is why I am asking for a tutor.

I promise to use this to design better buildings.

Please help retoot this so I can find someone.

If you were wondering why we did not release the update yesterday: It was a holiday in the US and that would not have been nice.

the british government is doing another survey where they're asking about the experiences of intersex people. this ~might influence policy and is almost certainly already being manipulated by bad people. as i have close intersex friends who had nonconsensual surgery performed on them by the NHS as infants this is very important to me.

Don't ask people "when are you having kids". Especially not women, who suffer this question a lot. ("Are you having kids" is a more okay question *if you know the person well*, but only sometimes.)

They might be, they might not be, and yes they've probably thought about it, and no, it's none of your business.

"Orkney was once utterly dependent on power that was produced by burning coal and gas on the Scottish mainland and then transmitted through an undersea cable. Today the islands are so festooned with wind turbines, they cannot find enough uses for the emission-free power they create on their own.

Community-owned wind turbines generate power for local villages; islanders drive nonpolluting cars that run on electricity; devices that can turn the energy of the waves and the tides into electricity are being tested in the islands’ waters and seabed; and – in the near future – car and passenger ferries here will be fuelled not by diesel but by hydrogen, created from water that has been electrolysed using power from Orkney’s wind, wave and tide generators."

Hello? Yes. This is the Titanic.
We ordered a lifeboat: You seem to have sent 20000 deckchairs, a flipchart and a marker pen.

Apparently ministers are briefing their local constituency offices to prepare for an early election.

So if you are, for example, a Swede - contact your representative to, if nothing else, stop the vote for today.

Me: Boost the confinement beam.
You: What? That's not...
Me: Transfer auxiliary power to shields.
You: You can't just say random-
Me: Run a level three diagnostic on the deflector array.
You: (sobbing) Stop...
Me: Make it so.

Last month I was accused of writing mixed-race characters, like myself, for "diversity brownie points." It's taken a while to get my feelings in order about this, but here is my response, and what it means to me to be a mixed-race author.
