Youtube isn't interested in keeping videos forever. Or even for a long time. They'd rather not keep old videos at all.

New terms of service add a clause to terminate your access "if YouTube believes, in its sole discretion, that provision of the Service to you is no longer commercially viable."

Dear #HongKongProtests girls and guys: as a journalist from Germany I’m not used to get so many „Thank you“ from the people around me. It is incredible here.

I worked at the ISIS-Frontlines but I’m more afraid of the HK police, since they are unpredictable.

Ich bin schon länger auf der Suche nach einem aktuellen Handy, das man ohne Google Dienste betreiben kann. Da die Diskussionen hier immer sehr schnell unübersichtlich werden, habe ich dazu einen Matrix Raum erstellt.

Über einen Repost würde ich mich sehr freuen!

Am I the only one who thinks is absolutely absurd that we're living in a world where we go to the streets protesting every single Friday, but instead of listening to what the people demand and act accordingly, we just try to accommodate to the inconvenience it comes with.

Schools are handing out insurance waivers to parents, businesses are releasing workers to go protest, events are rescheduled to different weekdays.

How inconvenient do we have to become before politicians start listening?

OP: “TIL If sound could travel through empty space, we'd be able to hear the sun at 125 decibels from Earth's surface. In comparison, 120 decibels is a train horn about one meter away from you.”

Reply: “There was an interesting philosophical problem faced by the ancients: why can't we hear the heavenly bodies (stars, planets, etc.) as they travel through the sky? True, they are very far away, but they must be very large and moving very quickly. Why can no one hear the Music of the Spheres?”

Laut Lokalzeitung gibt es hier in der Gegend immer mehr Städte und Gemeinden, die auf Groß-Feuerwerke verzichten wollen und nach Alternativen suchen.

Ich finde das sehr, sehr klasse. Und ich würde mir mit Begeisterung so ein "Drohnenfeuerwerk" wie dies hier anschauen:

Ich bin dafür,dass wir endliche eine Bedürftigkeitsprüfung bei #Diäten für Politiker einführen.Eine genaue transparente Aufstellung wieviel ein Politiker für sein Amt wirklich braucht und auch die Pensionsansprüche sollten hart geprüft werden.Schliesslich ist es unser Steuergeld.

Sylt, Rügen, Fehmarn könnten schon in 30 Jahren regelmäßig vom Meer überflutet werden. Selbst Teile von Ostfriesland, Bremen oder Hamburg 2050 wären einmal im Jahr betroffen. Das prognostiziert eine Studie an der Uni Princeton.

How about a break from all of the climate-related fire and storm disaster news for a nice prose-infusion on a #SolarPunk based community infrastructure? :bio_mech:

Distributed and decentralized #energy is the path to infrastructure #resilience amid escalating climate uncertainty.
Obviously.

A locally-administered Mastodon instance is to the Fediverse what a neighborhood microgrid is to the backup potential of the grid as a whole.

A #Microgrid is an independent electric grid that can operate as a node independent of the central power grid. It allows for a steady power supply even when an outage on the main grid happens. Several types of energy can be used to "collaborate" on a microgrid's design (See "The Neighbors Theory" on QE) for energy and informational storage capacity ideas.

Some big IFs to keep in mind:

(1) Photovoltaic panels make use of (and therefore contribute to the mining of) rare earth materials; mined materials are not sustainable. Continents with a hefty or spreading desert / #desertification problem are evidence of this.

(2) Electricity generation from renewable sources can be intermittent and variable depending on many factors including time of day and weather. What kind of energy your grid should be powered on depends on how well you can predict climate change.

(3) Distribution protection: when power generation happens within the distribution system, energy flows both ways, making voltage regulation especially difficult.

(4) While "rare earth" metal recycling can be done, recycling on the whole ought to be preceded by "Reduce, Reuse". What do you care enough to reuse? What does your town care enough to recycle?
