Did you know Fibonacci introduce is famed sequence as an example of how arabic numerals were superior to latin ones when computing? It's only fitting that we do the same, of course in #rakulang github.com/JJ/my-raku-exampl…

Putin sanctions everyone even Russians just thinking about changing its totalitarian regime… EU still refuses to sanction most if the people running it. We need to target ALL of Putin’s cronies #Navalnylist !
The Russian Justice Ministry on Friday added ex-world chess champion @Kasparov63 and former oil tycoon Mikhail Khodorkovsky, both prominent critics of the government, to the list of individuals acting as foreign agents, according the ministry's website

But the archbishop gladly still serve Holy Communion to pro-death penalty politicians. And the death penalty, unlike abortion, was actually something Christ spoke out against. In case you thought this had anything to do with Christ.
JUST IN: The San Francisco archbishop issued a notice Friday that he would no longer allow House Speaker Nancy Pelosi to receive Communion, an escalation of his feud with the Catholic Democrat over abortion politics. trib.al/Q3mKsI0

#Rakulang-related packages are just being renamed from "perl6" to "raku" in @debian Bookworm (testing). You can now get Raku with "apt install raku". Of course, these breaking changes will not be applied to the current stable releases.

The richer the Russians are, the more they support the war in Ukraine. At least that's a result of a poll by the Russian field sociological agency presented in this RBK infographics. We see a clear correlation between the level of income and the support of the war till victory

“It can't be reasoned with, it can't be bargained with. It doesn't feel pity or remorse or fear and it absolutely will not stop. Ever. Until you are dead.” “Oh, the Terminator, right?” “No… the Religious Right”

This is not a military target. The Russian state deliberately targeted this house of culture. This is a morale target to punish civilians and destroy Ukraine’s will to resist. This is a war crime.
The Telegram channel of Sergei Bratchuk, the head of the Odesa Regional Military Administration, published a video of a missile attack on a house of culture in Lozovaya in the Kharkiv region. According to Suspilne, at least 7 people were injured, including an 11-year-old child

Question authority. No idea is true just because someone says so. Test ideas by the evidence gained from observation and experiment! If a favorite idea fails a well-designed test, it's wrong!

Reminder that by 1970s/1980s standards, today's Tory party is a fascist fringe party (sharing 80% policy commonality with the National Front and BNP back then). There's been a reverse take-over and the Conservative brand in the UK is now just camouflage for fascism.
The newfound hatred of the civil service amongst wider Tory culture is the surest sign of their move away from traditional conservatism. They used to like the civil service as it was seen as a bulwark against radicalism - then the Tories themselves radicalised.

ALSO. Monkeypox is a DNA VIRUS. SARS-CoV-2 is an RNA virus. Anyone saying that one has caused the other or somehow branches from it is NOT WORTH YOUR TIME. They’re DIFFERENT viruses. Monkeypox is NOT NEW. It has been around. Science > Conspiracy Theories. Please and thank you.

De Europese Commissie publiceerde een wetsvoorstel tegen online misbruik van kinderen. Het voorstel is slordig, soms technisch onmogelijk en zet de vertrouwelijkheid van onze chats op het spel. Zo'n serieus probleem vraagt een veel betere oplossing. anchor.fm/computeridee/episo…

This is all about female subjugation to patriarchal hetero males, isn't it. (Goodbye birth control, divorce, abortion, non-marital sex, gay marriage, LGBT legality …)
Trump-endorsed state rep. candidate Jacky Eubanks says that if it came to a vote in the MI legislature, she would vote to make birth control illegal. “Sex ought to be between one man and one woman in the confines of marriage…and open to life. Absolutely.”
