📍Attaque de l'armée israélienne. Chaos à Ramallah, Palestine.

#thread #palestine

Hier soir, dans la ville de Ramallah, ville jeune et festive, des jeeps de l’armée israélienne sont entrés par dizaines.
Juste avant l’attaque, certain.e.s étaient entre ami.e.s, afin de profiter de la fraîcheur de la soirée autour d’un bon repas ou d’un concert.

#thread #tiananmen #hongkong

Hier à Hong-Kong, plusieurs arrestations préventives de militants pro démocratie, dont des artistes, ont eu lieu, et la police était à l'affût pour empêcher toute tentative de commémoration de la contestation de Tiananmen.
La militante vétéran Alexandra Wong, connue sous le nom de grand-mère Wong, a ainsi été interpellée par la police, pour le seul fait de participer à la commémoration.

There's one major problem with CWs: replies inherit the CW header from the previous post, meaning that the resulting thread becomes a sea of indistinguishable headers. Mastodon is bad in presenting threads, CWs make it worse.

I know it's possible for replies to modify the CW (I did so here!), but in practice most people will keep the header. Better native threading tools would help.

The Extraordinary Life of Octavius Crank - Part One
#FairyTaleTuesday #folklore #Folktale #AmWriting #WritersCommunity #writerdons #thread

In a tranquil land nestled deep within the embrace of nature, there lived a man named Octavius Crank. Octavius was no ordinary man, for he possessed a mane of meadow flowers that flowed like a vibrant tapestry upon his head, while reeds formed a magnificent, flowing beard. He was a gentle soul, harmoniously coexisting with the creatures of the wild.

Octavius was not alone in his verdant existence. Voles, tiny creatures with velvety fur, had found solace within the labyrinth of his floral hair. They would dart and play amidst the blossoms, their tiny footfalls like whispers of joy. Meanwhile, colourful finches had taken up residence within the intricate network of his reed beard, building their nests with delicate precision. Their melodious songs filled the air as they lived in harmony with their host.

Octavius had chosen to reside by a serene, meandering stream that glistened like liquid silver beneath the radiant sun. It was here that he found solace and sustenance. With a remarkable dexterity, he would gracefully dip his toes into the water, his movements resembling a dance. The fish, drawn to his gentle touch, would glide into his grasp, allowing themselves to be caught as if recognising the harmony of their interconnected existence.

Check the LOST CAT network. Nothing. Maybe someone (senior) isn't tuned into online reporting. There's missing cat posters everywhere, so we did the town. Checked them all.
Unbelievably, no one was looking for him? He was a lovely healthy young boy, but had been out a long time.

Took him to the vet, that was fun.

And suddenly, the cats is ours. And he knows he is staying. He's stretched out on the treadmill, crushing an 8 pound size cat  bed. The other cats hate him, he's so *wild* LOL
Pretty comfortable looking, for a cat that won't let you pick him up or touch his paws. He's stretched as far as he can, between the arms of the sofa-chair, one back paw up on the chair arm, because he's so long, and sprawled out

It took a few days of coaxing.

Naturally, I persisted. I'd walk closer, and walk away, if he looked scared. I got within 20 feet of him, just by not making eye contact. Then I sat a dish of food at that spot, and walked far away.

It didn't take long, for him to associate that spot, and food. He'd empty it, I'd refill it, he was vacuuming it up! He was very hungry.

What was he living on?

For example, the Emergency Department was closed entirely through January and Feb, even though it's part of Halifax, it was starved of resources. The next hospital for emergencies is 50 to 90 minutes away, if open

There were backhoes for hire in the area, you could have firewood hauled out for you to cut up in 8 foot lengths.
Rural folks do their firewood in groups, but I was at sea. So they cut, delivered, and paid for, 10 cords of firewood for my wife.

Does that happen a lot where you live?

Back then, I had 2 old cars. You needed a spare, there's no one to call. I'd drive daily when home, either by 'murdercycle' or by car. Gas was cheaper but money was less. I could always stay on my ship overnight, instead of driving home, if required.

There was a daily bus. Nothing you could use to get to work on time, but you could make it to the city, and you could send packages out on the bus.

I sent my wife flowers by bus, when I couldn't get home before sailing.

Moving rural was natural for her. But, she'd a new baby to care for, who's ♪ daddy's a sailor, who never comes home ♪ , https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8KD7eUfIgCk ; my wife was there alone.
Money was tight. She made do with very little. We raised Chickens, a dog, a pig, & soon, a second child.

We were very poor, married a few years, with one child, when I bought this 1st home. It was all we could afford. But it was so far to the city, it was impractical to drive to work daily. But I did, some days.

I gave up my last new car, to be able to afford a mortgage. There was nothing left for renovations. I had to learn that myself.

As we tore out walls, we left notes, for future renos. Names of our pets, height of kids, our Anniversary.

Back in the 1960 & 1970s, I'd be at my father's place in Necum Teuch, but in 1980, I bought a home down the road from him.

I'd already owned 2 other properties, hoping to build, but this rare spot came up for sale.
It had apple trees, lilacs, surrounded by ocean, every sea creature came into the yard, seals, otters, geese, ducks.
Cool #ocean breeze in hottest of summers. A dream location.

There was a garage next door to the store. I think the same owner once?

But the garage mechanic was a person you'd never forget. S L O W talking, slow walking, a simple mechanic, that did things precision shops don't do today.
Fixed everything. Welded the leg on my ironing board in 1981. The weld still holds today.

"How much, Les?"
"Couple of bucks?"

He always posed it as a question, 'like is $2 too much?'

Like everything else along the #EasternShore most is gone today.

We'd walk, or hitchhike, up the road to the store. Sometimes an Aunt would need something and send us. We didn't need money. All store employees knew every child, and every adult that sent them for cigarettes to add to their monthly bill.

The store had hours, but if a light was on, just knock. We'd go see Parades at the store in the 80s. All villages came too.

Besides weekend dances, churches were often focal points for a community.

The United Church in Moser River, had a basement hall, the kind that has craft sales, community dinners, public dances and in our case, a wedding. Our wedding reception was held here.

Just before they tore it down, a few years ago, I thought to take one more photo, from sea, as we passed by in the harbour. Memories lost now.

Alpha & Omega?

#NecumTeuch #Halifax #EasternShore #FollowTheCoast #WAYCTV

A church, on a bit of a hill, it has a steeple at the front, and a long larger portion of multiple levels. There was a basement hall, and more at one time. The church was completely removed a few years ago, even with this photo, you could not find the spot

NE PAS PARLER DU POLICIER QUI A BLESSÉ SON COLLÈGUE AVEC UNE GRENADE.

La vidéo a fait le tour des réseaux sociaux, pas des médias. Un policier a loupé son lancer de grenade le 1er mai, venant se loger sur le collègue devant lui.

#thread #1ermai #violencespolicieres

Vidéo sur laquelle on voit une compagnie de gendarmes mobiles reculer en formation, l'un des gendarmes à l'arrière du groupe tente de lancer une grenade ASSD mais rate son lancer et celle-ci atterrie sur ses collègues devant. Elle explose et l'un d'entre-eux s'effondre, entrainant dans sa chute plusieurs de ses collègues. S'ensuit plusieurs ralentis sur lesquels on distingue bien le type de grenade dont il s'agit et surtout l'origine du lancer.

Habe die ersten Podcastfolgen von #BOYSCLUB gehört. Respekt für den Mut der Interviewten, Hochachtung vor der großartigen Arbeit der Journalistinnen @stenderap und Lena von Holt. Jetzt folgt ein kleines, solidarisches "Aber". Ein langer #Thread. (1/10) 🧵

@pluralistic wouldn't another way to create less intrusive threads be to tag all but the first post with #thread and then those who want an abbreviated view would add a filter to hide posts with #thread. In our feed such posts should be hidden with a placeholder of "filtered posts" or something which can be expanded.

I haven't tried it but it seems to be the way content filtering works for me.

Or a popular client could just implement a better way to display threads on its own.

I had a Software Engineering Assignment which was due on monday, which asked us to do something called "Storyboarding". I was allowed to choose any idea. Basically, a #storyboard helps to demonstrate a particular feature, or a use-case of an app through sketches, or comic-strips.

Instead of doing something boring like a "Train reservation system", I tried something new: A Storyboard for #Pixelfed!

In the 19th c. the British diplomat Lord Elgin removed & shipped back to Britain sculptures & reliefs he removed from the Parthenon which sits on top of the Athenean acropolis. These, together with Benin Bronzes have become a symbol at cultural theft and neo-colonialism. >>

A little improvement on the scheduler to make it more system friendly.

`ThreadPool` no longer takes a ˋpool_sizeˋ but a ˋdesired_pool_sizeˋ. The system might not have all the expected available parallelism resources. Maybe it is busy, maybe it is limited. So now, the pool size is clamped, https://github.com/Hywan/weld/commit/8590fa4f5c80b5c827c0e928226d5b5bbd231f2c. The documentation provides more details.

Hopefully Rust has a standard function for that: `std::thread::available_parallelism`. How neat!
