Someday we should reflect on how 2020-21 saw the largest expansion of the US social safety net in most of our lifetimes, leading to the quickest drop in US poverty ever recorded, and then it was all undone almost immediately, allowed to expire & apparently forgotten.

I know it's a holiday weekend and you probably want to do things, but be careful out there—we're still in a pandemic. Our local sewage monitoring paints a scary picture. covid19.sccgov.org/dashboard…

This fixes a big issue with USB C! Benson & his team have been working on this for a while and it's great to see it alive. There is no easy way to know what functionalities your cable has without a $100 USB PD testing device. But now, your computer can tell you!
Coming to Chrome OS M102: Newer Chromebooks (11th Gen Intel or newer) will notify you if the USB-C cable you're using with a dock or a monitor does not support DisplayPort!

many people are misrepresenting the holding of this case by saying the Court ruled that cops do not have to help you. what it actually held was that even if there is a law **mandating** that cops help you, they still don't have to
Episode 8 is Castle Rock v Gonzales, a case about whether the police owe you a single goddamn thing. podcasts.apple.com/us/podcas…

BTW, if you're one of the people who is asking "what could Biden do on his own?" remember that Warren's platform was broken down into what could be accomplished by executive order, other executive action, and legislation. elizabethwarren.com/plans/gu…

Bugs me every single time people use the resulting deceptive brand of "my second amendment rights"
A reminder of how detached from reality the right wing party is today. Here's Nixon appointed Conservative Supreme Court Justice Warren Burger on the NRA's interpretation of the Second Amendment. "One of the greatest pieces of fraud on the American people." #RobbElementaryschool

Genius and awe inspiring but also so very, very depressing that they have to speak like this just to make their voice heard.
florida high school class president zander moricz was told by his school that they would cut his microphone if he said “gay” in his grad speech, so he replaced gay with “having curly hair.” i am in awe

🚨 ALERT 🚨 Python's ctx library and a fork of PHP's phpass have been compromised. 3 million users combined. The malicious code sends all the environment variables to a heroku app, likely to mine AWS credentials.
