That we have understood the phases of , that we are in control of them, that hasn't known until now... it is like that which got us where we are now.


I doubt this is what should happen and what humanity needs. Also the historical narrative is selective in a harmful way.


"The report calls for an extensive free trade deal between the US and the UK, with ... equivalence between the UK and USA’s rules"

This would make a trade deal with the EU impossible.

Are there any open-source or public domain #pharmaceuticals online? I'm looking at the WHO list of essential #medicines ( en.wikipedia.org/wiki/WHO_Mode [Wiki] or apps.who.int/iris/bitstream/ha [PDF]) and wondering how many of the medicines on the list, if any, have anything from formulation to manufacturing process, etc. online. Not that I know anything about #pharma, but it seems like the kind of thing humanity should have access to. #health

Watch this new documentary "Paywall: The Business of Scholarship" (#OpenAccess, free stream) paywallthemovie.com It covers a fair amount of ground. Could be an eye-opener for many people but also if, like me, this is a subject you're familiar with, you might still appreciate the variety of points it makes. I especially was interested in some of the voices speaking about the issues in countries that cannot afford Elsevier, etc. & how that access (lack thereof) directs their research.

- a microSD card weighs somewhere around 0.4g
- the highest capacity microSD that's easily available is 256GB
- a trebuchet can throw a 90kg projectile over 300m

90kg worth of microSD cards is 225,000 of them

Therefore a trebuchet can throw 57.6PB of data over 300m

This would have the highest throughput of any telecommunications network ever created

@kmicu yes, that is a good point, I concur. I shared it with in mind, thinking of people unaware of how the benefits them with redistributing wealth and supporting projects the government wouldn't actually back. In other words, many ask what the EU has done for them, and they don't know. Do you think it might help in that way?
