Please think of
Use a centred dot to indicate screenreaders where to split a long word, f.i. Sesqui•pedalo•phobie 😉
Follow the bot @PleaseCaption
It will follow you and remind you in each case automatically (a few seconds later) with this PM:
"Please remember to caption your media. It makes Mastodon more accessible!
Not too late to delete and re-draft."
That seems to be the only way to add captions to your media afterwards.

I found today that "if you are out of spoons or there is anything else why you can’t write image description you can tag @imagecaptionspls and someone else will write the caption for you!"
That's a great tipp, @hyperflexible (Source toot.party/@hyperflexible/1056 )
And thank you all for doing the tag or the description. 💐

Hi!
I'm Birgit and boycott W(hatsApp)T(witter)F(acebook).😜
I believe in and (that is no contradiction), try to unterstand and accept opinions and points of view.
I want to protect the (esp. the ocean), take a stand against unrestrained economic growth, and of anyone weaker (countries, people etc.), but sometimes have to compromise about my ideals in everyday life.

Lehrbücher sollten halt die Realität an deutschen Bildungseinrichtungen wiederspiegeln.

Privatsphäre u. Anonymität ist kein Grund für Misstrauen. Privatsphäre ist kein Verbrechen.
Der klassische Slogan »Wer nichts zu verbergen hat, hat auch nichts zu befürchten« hat sich immer wieder als falsch erwiesen.
Das Richtige zu tun, ist keine Einladung für eine ausufernde Überwachung. Unsere Privatsphäre ist kein notwendiges Opfer, um ein aufrechter Bürger zu werden, u. die Vorstellung, dass dies der Fall ist, ist unglaublich gefährlich für die Grundsätze, die unsere Gemeinschaft leiten.

Umfrage:

Mich würde mal interessieren, ob oder welche Hobbys ihr habt bzw. welche Leidenschaften ihr verfolgt.

Engagiert ihr euch in einem Verein oder seit politisch irgendwie aktiv?

Ist IT-Security vlt. eure Leidenschaft und seit dort irgendwo aktiv?

Lasst mich eure Hobbys gerne wissen. Freue mich über jede Antwort.

😀 ✌️

Gibt es ein tolles E-Lastenrad mit 3 Rädern, das auch von "älteren" Menschen, die schon etwas eingeschränkt beweglich sind, benutzt werden kann? Z. B. tieferen einstieg und so ähnlich.

@kuketzblog Insgesamt scheint mir das noch vertretbar- nicht allerdings das Kontaktformular, weil hier haben wir ja glasklar personenbezogene Daten die in die USA kommen könnten, da ändert auch die Erklärung in der Privacy Policy nichts daran, weil USA halt keinen Schutz gewährleisten können (Schrems II)

Hallo, hiernochmal alle Infos zusammen
unser Lastenrad aus dem kostenlosen Verleihsystem wurde in der Nacht in Braunschweig gestohlen. Wer es sieht, bitte die Polizei informieren. heinrich-der-lastenloewe.de/cb

But you can't get the law enforced - or reformed - by voting with your wallet. You can't even vote with your wallet unless you first vote with your ballot, and create a strong, accountable public system that prohibits unethical and dangerous business practices, and then enforces those prohibitions.

The zenith of this was the creation of the B Corporation, or "Public Benefit Corporation," a kind of company that was formally exempted from prioritizing making money for its shareholders, in favor of doing good for the world. B-corps are certified by B Lab, a nonprofit.

Some of the B-corps that B-Lab certifies are doubtless great. Others are manifestly not.

Then there's "ESG" - investment funds that claim to be a way to save for retirement without rendering the planet uninhabitable by the time you're ready to retire. These, too, are fraud-magnets that don't live up to their claims. Up until a couple months ago, some of the best-performing ESGs you could buy
were heavily invested in Russian gas and oil:

Or take carbon offsets. In theory, you can board a jet, buy an SUV, or run your backyard patio-heater and still not hurt the planet, merely by buying enough carbon offsets to incentivize companies to scale back their emissions. In theory. In practice, carbon offsets are also lies.

There's another defect, though, that's a little less obvious. When you stop voting with your ballots and start voting with your dollars, then the companies that get your dollars can capture your political representatives (this is even easier if the company has a monopoly). Once the political system is on the company's side, you lose the ability to vote with your dollars, too.

But voting with your dollars has some obvious deficits. The first one is that you can't shop your way out of monopoly capitalism. If you don't like how Walmart's predatory pricing and fat tax breaks let it drive every business in town out of business, you're stuck. After all, every other business in town went bust, and you still need *stuff*.

Finally, in 2019, the US Centers for Medicare and Medicaid Services stepped up and launched the more comprehensive and up-to-date "Open Payments" service. Go check whether your doc is on the take!

But these databases offer an incomplete picture of the opioid wars; the only offer a glimpse into one aspect of the outcomes of pharma bribes: how much money changed hands.

Over the past 15 years, the origins and scope of the opioid epidemic have come into focus, and we've learned that this was no accident. Pharma companies - led by Purdue Pharma, makers of Oxycontin, owned by the secretive billionaire Sackler family, who once threatened to sue me for criticizing them - deliberately created the epidemic and made fortunes by doing so.

I knew that this was a bad sign, so I turned to the journal's colophon and learned that it was not a journal at all. It was an advertorial from a pharma giant - one with a profitable line in opioids - that was disguised as a peer-reviewed journal. It looked like a journal, but it wasn't. It was targeted at doctors - like my doctor.

please share:

so on Twitter someone complained about missing queerness / queer compatibility in games and in the following thread the typical "I have great ideas but can't code" evolved. Well I can code this time I have a good feeling, so

is anyone here willing to commit some time and errort into a queer-friendly game? we can use all kinds of resources.
If a handful of people are willing to commit, I will make this an actual project with serious planning.
