I'm happy to introduce our new ultra-low tech CMS for smol, accessible websites. The goal was to make something that could be self-hosted, but friendly enough for people who don't SFTP or use a terminal. 3 PHP files, Apache, and Gemtext. Should work on any dumb old Apache host; a technical person could manage many of these for friends and family with zero maintenance. Happy to answer any questions or take bug reports.
All fibers shed, but synthetic fibers do not degrade. From "The contribution of washing processes of synthetic clothes to microplastic pollution" published April 2019:
"Results showed that microfibres released during washing range from 124 to 308 mg for kg of washed fabric depending from the type of washed garment that corresponds to a number of microfibres ranging from 640,000 to 1,500,000."
It goes on to note, the resulting size of microplastic released is small enough to bypass filters!
Is free trade a liberal or a conservative policy? Is it conservative to support the French Revolution? What about the American Revolution? Is prohibition or decriminalisation of intoxicants (marijuana, alcohol) progressive? Is punching your political enemies fascist or anti-fascist? Is it conservative or liberal to support speech codes? Do communists support trade unions? Do fascists support capitalism?
The truth or falsity of these propositions depends on our definition of terms.
Interesting screenshot taken from this even more interesting video:

Former Russian Foreign Minister says that funds for modernizing the military was spent on "yachts in Cyprus."
The point of Putinist propaganda is always to make people feel like there is no truth, nothing can be understood, everything is a lie or a conspiracy theory. People who fall into that trap are then unable to act, they become nihilists.
A protester in Russia and an exile from the Donbas region of Ukraine tell their stories, describing the invasion of Ukraine from their vantage points.
Center the voices of ordinary Ukrainians and Russians!
"While some supposed 'leftists' in the English-speaking world have parroted Vladimir Putin’s talking points, excusing the Russian invasion by blaming NATO or speculating that the thousands of Ukrainians who have already been killed must be fascists, we believe that any responsible engagement with these events must center the voices of ordinary Ukrainians and Russians who oppose military aggression. Rather than being mere information consumers, rather than abetting the imperial ambitions of dictators or looking to other self-interested governments to contain those ambitions, we have to build relations of real solidarity with the people who are immediately affected by this invasion—in Ukraine, in Russia, in Belarus, and elsewhere."

#Ukraine’s Defense minister said today that the army (+the many active citizens) managed to capture more abandoned Russian military equipment (trophies) than than the 🇺🇦 state procured eight years. No one gave 🇺🇦 more weapons than the “state of aggressor”.
