This is very specific but I'm wondering if anyone here knows any resources for trans people in Croatia? I'm trying to put someone there who has very transphobic parents in touch with some support. :boosts_ok:

A reminder that Mastodon and the Fediverse do NOT use cryptocurrency, blockchains, NFTs, tokens, coins, mining, web3 or anything like that.

Masto and the Fedi run on traditional servers and use a sustainable network federation model somewhat similar to e-mail (that's why Fediverse addresses look similar to e-mail addresses).

Also a reminder there are no venture capital firms or other investors either. No one owns the network, each server is independent. Masto and Fedi server running costs are paid by their owners, sometimes with donations from users.

No one is getting rich from the Fediverse, it is all volunteers with some getting donations and a few getting modest grants from foundations. Please remember this when you interact with admins or developers.

(There might be some individual users who post about cryptocurrency/blockchain, but the infrastructure this place runs on doesn't use it at all.)

Tl:dr - Decentralisation does NOT mean cryptocurrency/blockchain

The amount of water a clam filters is called the clearance rate. This rate is typically measured in liters per hour per gram of clam mass. The clearance rate can decline if the bivalves "clam up" in response to stresses from temperature or salinity. They can also be reduced if the clams' gills are clogged by non-food particles, such as during a storm. The clams may increase clearance rate if they sense more plankton in the water, or if they are trying to bulk up before spawning! #clamfacts

Hey, ANY #MANGA NERDS OUT THERE?

I'm looking for recommendations!
I'm running a comic book reading circle for adults here at my #library and we've had three lovely gatherings so far with works with their own particular traditions and styles: Mats Jonsson (Swedish), Will Eisner (American) and Steve Cuzor (French). In the future we hope to read #Japanese #comics. Problem is that we can't think of many manga that are complete stories in a single volume (max ca 500 pages). Any tips? Boosts=❤

capitalist gothic 

your employer is refusing to pay you, and you are a student, so they get to do that. you apply for unemployment, as you will not be working soon, anyway. they need to verify your identity. instead of the old ways of verifying ID, the state is now using a third-party that uses your credit history. you do not have a credit history. you call the help line, and they redirect you to the credit verification process. there is no option to use the birth certificate you’re holding.

Every few weeks the president is like “listen Jack, we’re going to fight a two front war with Russia and China!” and the DOD has to put out a statement like “please ignore our insane president. we will not be fighting a two front war with Russia and China”

People with #accessibility needs to enjoy #YouTube content, what can I do as a creator beyond providing accurate closed captions?

Quin Jay :heart_nb: boosted

finally realized that there's a UI difference in how polls look, hooray! if you can't read the full text of the options in the poll i'm about to re-boost, here they are again:

add a caption track that rewrites the in-game dialogue captions in the YT player
add a caption track that contains text describing important visuals
where possible, add an audio track describing the visuals
something else (replies and boosts greatly appreciated)

The question: what can I do as a YouTube content creator beyond providing accurate closed captions?

My daughter was redecorating her room, and wanted a large solar system poster.

So, I designed a set that reflects the "world-focused" view of the Solar System that I've used when presenting planetary science to kids -- emphasizing moons, planets, and dwarf planets as worlds in themselves.

I did a print run, and I still have some for sale in my shop. The individual posters are 19"x27".

Re-boosting your own posts for 'the morning crew' or 'the night crew' is an acceptable and encouraged practice here. We are largely a community of supportive people who enjoy being given the opportunity to help each other and boost content we may have previously missed.

You should never feel ashamed of promoting yourself, especially as an artist, when it's so difficult to reach people. If anyone doesn't want to see your boosts, they can just scroll past.
