#Recommendation Is there a decent place to buy Panasonic batteries at a reasonable price? Need a 3 volt CR2032 replacement for an AirTag.

Terrific #review in #newyork times by Cynthia Ozick, for those interested in the exploration of #inspiration :
I am looking for book recommendations on 19th Century Orientalism, specifically concerning the Far East (Japan and China) rather than the Middle East or Egyptomania.

Sometimes I wonder what #recommendation #algorithms would be like if they were built for #neurodivergent folks. Anywhere with an #algorithm seems to get things wildly wrong for me. I assume my #ADHD scattershot and #autistic deep-dive ways of engaging with topics confuse the hell out of heuristics tuned for NT levels of attention and engagement. Do my fellow NDs have similar poor experiences too? Or is this just how it is universally and all recommendations suck for everyone, no matter the neurotype?
(Note: Using "algorithm" to describe a recommendation engine is a bit lazy and ignores that much of what matters is the data the algorithm operates on, but I'm not up for dying on that hill today.)
Tennessee Speaker appoints conspiracy theorist to develop state social studies standards
#Laurie #Cardoza-#Moore, known for holding extremist views and promoting conspiracy theories, has called "U.S. history #textbooks" currently used in classrooms the "#greatest #national #security #threat to the United States."
Last week, #Tennessee #House #Speaker Cameron #Sexton (R) announced that he had appointed Cardoza-Moore to serve on the Tennessee #Standards #Recommendation Committee to oversee “#Social #Studies materials being reviewed for use in classrooms #statewide.”
With her new appointment, Cardoza-Moore will have the power to “submit final recommendations for [Social Studies] standards to the State Board.”
I watch a lot of British TV and I enjoyed the first season of "The Tower". Season 2 is airing right now and it's some of the best TV that I've seen lately.

I still think streaming doesn't properly respect liner notes, even on Apple's new Classical music app (which often credits the notes' authors without giving you the notes themselves). This app is nearly as good, though. Hit the share button on a song or album in Apple Music, and this will be a destination if it's installed. It then gives insanely detailed notes.

Typical dark synth electro-pop fare from ex-Sneaker Pimps multi-instrumentalist Chris Corner. I'm probably going to stick the rest of his discography on after this, to be perfectly honest.
Oh and if you're in Tucson and need a plumber, this is an ad for Silverado Plumbing (https://www.silveradoplumbing.com/), ask for Keith and José, and when they show up say 'hi' for me.
A couple of days now I use the @IceCubesApp to check in with you lots. What can I say? It's brilliant a I finally found an app I can live with. Today they will receive a little something.
What I like the most:
- no monthly fee (the creator asks for a tip)
- Translate feature
- very user-friendly
- nice features
What I "don't like":
It shows how many posts I missed. It's shocking 😱
If you are looking for an app, use Ice Cubes. It won't disappoint.

I'm only a few chapters in but it's good although frustrating reading. It is very #political but all the necessary readings these days are. Personally I think everyone should read it, but particularly anyone over the age of 40 because that demographic are those least likely to understand the issues raised in it and experienced predominantly by younger Australians.
Probably available via your local library in Australia as a physical book or ebook.

📱 Balance: Meditation & Sleep app “that adapts to you.”
There are many, many apps out there for personal #wellness, it can become a little overpowering.
As a personal #recommendation, if you’re looking for a #meditation app, the one I’ve grown to be at home with is the Balance app. I use it twice a day, PLUS the FREE year is a really awesome intro, with absolutely no obligation to buy.

In her book "The patients of Doctor Garcia" (untranslated in English), Spanish writer Almudena Grandes draws a breathtaking picture of Spain (and Europe) between 1936 and 1976. Life under Franco, the Second World War, the extraction of war criminals first to Spain, then to Argentina - it's an ambitious book, but perfectly executed.

It has been years since I taught intro psychology, or really anything that isn’t statistics and research methods for that matter, and have to say that I am thoroughly enjoying listening to the Psych podcast by Paul Bloom and David Pizarro, based on Paul’s book. Really worth a listen if you want to recapture (and update) some of those big ideas that made you want to do psychology in the first place!
I’m grateful for the music of #CommonHymnal and #MaverickCityMusic.
The Praise & Protest album strikes at the heart of so much struggle in the U.S. for #truth and #justice (It’s been my demolition music-one needs to break something when listening). Kingdom Book One is a triumphant reprieve in the struggle for justice through remembrance of the live and victory through Jesus the Christ.

More DJ metaphors to make light of how technology should be re-understood:

Just discovered Korean director Park Chan-wook. What a master of his craft!
My favorite so far is his 2022 movie _Decision to Leave_, a complex blend of crime drama, thriller, and love story. ★★★★★
His 20-year old vengeance trilogy is much more unhinged but already shows the same perfectionism and love/obsession with detail.
You can find much of his work on mubi (+ VPN). Highly recommended! #cinema #recommendation #movies

@parkermolloy my take on a world without #recommendation #algorithms is
- #follow #people or #topics that interest you
- #boost posts you think are worth boosting
- #respond when you feel you will add something to the #conversation
- #post what you find interesting
If people choose to follow you, that is great. But even if they don’t, the points above means that you can still #enjoy your experience here.

Super-nerdy #networking #books #recommendation:
The Undersea Network by Nicole Starosielski
There are other good books about network infrastructure, but the thing I found fascinating about this one is the level of #culture and #history analysis it does. It goes into detail about the impacts transpacific cables have had on the various Pacific islands they land on. Things like politics and military involvement, and local populations' inability to have a say in where the cables land (or whether they do at all). Lack of benefit to local populations (both network and economic) since frequently the cables aren't even terminated at all on these islands, they are just pass-throughs. "Cable colonies" that got established for Europeans servicing the cables to live separately from the indigenous folks. This book is full of interesting, important stuff - I highly recommend it.
