1/🧵🎥 #Delta COVID ALERT‼️

4th wave has Teens phoning parents to say Goodbye. Beds & Staffing are too tight to monitor visitation.
 
Infxs Dz doc @katieoneallsu told me we’re descending to new lows in a crisis of the #unvaccinated. Listen as she describes a nightmarish reality.
2/🎥 In previous waves, it was adults saying goodbye to kids. Now it’s the other way around. In LA, @ololhealth & other major centers are no longer able to provide quality care because their teams are too overwhelmed.

#Solutions?
3/🎥 How do you solve this problem? @katieoneallsu speaks of temporary pseudo-answers: creating “new ICU beds” & staffing them w non-ICU caregivers. “The only way to truly stem the tide is by #Vaccination. We have weeks ahead in which this gridlock will continue to hurt people.”

1/🧵🎥 UBUNTU is an answer to the #COVID question not enough of us are asking:

Who is my neighbor?
Our response to this question will dictate our #PublicHealth decisions.
 
What is ubuntu? A type of humanism needed #now more than ever. Listen to Nelson Mandela & Desmond Tutu!👏
2/🎥👇 Nelson Mandela on Ubuntu: “A traveler through a country would stop at a village and he didn't have to ask for food or for water. Once he stops, the people give him food and attend him. That is one aspect of Ubuntu, but it will have various aspects.”
3/ Embracing #Ubuntu means it’s not about you, it’s not about me, it’s about us working together as one! Ubuntu is belief in a universal bond of sharing that connects all humanity & transcends barriers, ideologies, cultural diversity and more.

#X86 vs #ARM
خب داستان این که چند دهه پیش چندین معماری مختلف برای پردازنده های کامپیوتری اختراع شد که دو مورد از معروفترین های اون RISC و CISC بود. ریسک دستورالعمل های کمی داشت و به همین دلیل سایز پردازنده، مصرف انرژی کمتر و طراحی ساده تری داشت اما نرم افزار باید اون محدودیت
دستورالعمل رو حل می کرد. در طرف دیگه سیسک دستورالعمل های بیشتری رو پشتیبانی می کنه و دست برنامه نویس خیلی بازتر و به دلیل معماری متفاوت توان کار در فرکانس های خیلی بالاتر از ریسک رو داره اما در مقابل مصرف انرژیش خیلی بیشتر و طراحی خود پردازنده خیلی مشکل تر.
تا اونجا که
من شنیدم همین فرکانس کاری بالاتر و دستورالعمل های بیشتر (راحتی برنامه نویسی) باعث شد که از ابتدا معماری سیسک برای کامپیوتر ها استفاده بشه که اینتل و amd تخصص شون این معماری که به x86 هم معروف. در طرف مقابل بخاطر مصرف انرژی کمتر دستگاههای مختلف از بوردهای الکترونیکی تا گوشی و

On now, Dave Perkins of @dialogues360 presenting results of study on 5 #ASMecosystems in #SouthAfrica. #Data variability is a persistent research challenge and also needs coordination across partners in the ecosytem. @DelveASM confirms this as a problem of global scale.
Cost of compliance, lack of access to capital, markets & weakened institutional support to #ASM sector in #SouthAfrica are validated as barriers in this sector. Impact of these factors pale in comparison to the policy/ reg vacuum w/in whichsector operates. Policy schizophrenia.
.@dialogues360 argues, and I concur, that time is of the essence in influencing the new policy process launched by the government of #SouthAfrica on formalizing the #ASM sector, ideally convened by a neutral, honest broker party.

@DrCConnell @sarah_bodell @LecturerMish @anita_atwal 1/ Good question @sarah_bodell
Love that idea @DrCConnell , we could even go to say that positive action is taken & there is always a seat specifically for election for each of those #Diversity groups
Thank you for both your engagement

Another draft idea... (cont.) #BAME
@DrCConnell @sarah_bodell @LecturerMish @anita_atwal 2/ If there is ever an #Equality #Diversity #inclusion (#EDI) officer in the college, then attached to this are @BAMEOTUK network, officially in @theRCOT contributing to the EDI agenda (cont.)

#campaign @BAMEOTUK network officially part of @theRCOT
@DrCConnell @sarah_bodell @LecturerMish @anita_atwal @theRCOT 3/ The aim would be to influence & impact @theRCOT activities & raise the agenda at board level regarding the issues of paying #BAME members across the profession & ...(cont.)

Two days ago, I was in an interview in which I surprised the interviewers by saying that Kenyans don't have the same political consciousness as Africans in the other settler ex-colonies of South Africa and Zimbabwe.

Thread.
For instance, South African students campaigned for #feesmustfall and #rhodesmustfall. In SA, students said "our parents fought against apartheid because they wanted us to go to school. So now we want to go to school, whether we have money or not."
Here? Students are ask about skills because that's what employers want. Or ask for leadership. They don't question why they must get into debt to learn. They instead ask for effecient disbursement and merciful repayment terms. Students don't know what is in their own interests.

Para convertir números en Hexadecimal a decimal en el terminal de #Linux:
echo $((0x2F))

o También:
$((16#2F))

#GNU #bash #shell #Ubuntu #commandline Image
Y al revés. Para convertir números de Decimal a Hexadecimal en el terminal de #Linux:

printf %x 15; printf "\n" Image
Para acabarlo de rematar, mediante la calculadora "bc" podemos realizar conversiones de hexadecimal o de binario a decimal:

echo "ibase=16; 2F" | bc

echo "ibase=2; 100" | bc

echo "ibase=2; 101" | bc Image

Para los talibanes del terminal de #Linux:
Como ver el pronóstico del tiempo desde el terminal:
curl wttr.in

Como ver el pronóstico de lluvias y temperaturas:
curl v2.wttr.in

#gnu #shell #bash #Ubuntu #commandline ImageImage
Se me olvidaba, también podéis cotillear el pronóstico de otras ciudades de todo el mundo, ejemplo:
curl wttr.in/Madrid ImageImage
Continuando con el hilo: Si queréis ver los datos meteorológicos, pero comprimidos en una línea del terminal de #Linux, hay otro programa en los repositorios de #Ubuntu:
sudo apt install ansiweather

Y lo ejecutamos con la siguiente sintaxis:

ansiweather -u metric -l "Madrid" ImageImage

Segue o #fio de um #historiador sobre o curso Programação Web @metropoledigi @ufrnbr. Ideia dada por @brennovich no dia da #MarchaVirtualpelaCiencia @SBPCnet. Conversas com Brenno, @freireopaulo, @Guimme_ e outros sobre #programacao #Tecnologia #web #Historia #ensino #ti
04/05/2020: Começo da matéria Lógica de #Programação. De cara me lembrei dos livros de #HarukiMurakami que se passam nos anos 1980. Vários personagens aparecem japoneses aprendendo sobre #input e #output nos recém lançados editores de texto e computadores pessoais. #literatura
04/05/2020 Me lembrou conversa com @iberemoreno sobre editores de textos que funcionam com lógica de #programação. Aqueles em que ao invés de tentar reproduzir na tela o que você vê no papel, partem para a o que você "quis dizer" é que vai para o resultado final. 1/3

Então gente, resolvi fazer essa thredding para explicar a importância de ocupar todos os espaços na industria do entretenimento e isso inclui estar atrás das câmeras. Muita gente indignada com a Edição branqueada no ensaio da @thelminha_assis
queria registrar que até na fotografia, e falo tecnicamente, o racismo deixou marcas ceveras. Infelizmente a mudança aconteceu não por que nós mudamos mas por que um outro setor da indústria reivindicou isso. Segue o fio.
Quando surgiram os filmes coloridos, eles foram pensados para pele clara, o que surpreende um total de ZERO pessoas. Com filmes P&B algumas coisas eram super fáceis de se resolver na hora da revelação. Dá para explicar isso com trabalhos de profissonais do passado e do presente.

I started playing #guitar in college. Some of my friends back home played, so I thought I'd learn. It's been years since I kept up with it. With no job and an empty house, I had time. Plus, I could crank up my amp. Ava would have hated it. All the more reason to do it.
#vss365
Strumming a few chords or playing a riff through a loud amp usually makes me feel better. It's more of a distraction this time. My amp is a little old. Even a #ragpicker might pass on it. "If you're not going to play it, sell it," Ava nagged. Life always got in the way.
#vss365
Or I got in the way. Not even ten years ago I kept getting sick all the time. Painful stomach cramps would radiate weakness throughout my body. I learned how to wash it away like healing #rainwater. That's when I really started to figure out who I was and what I could do.

Public Service Announcement: If you want to help push the needle away from centralized corporations telling you what to do, snooping on you, and making you the product, get your local geek to install Linux.

How I did it:
larrysanger.org/2019/01/how-an…
Wait, isn't Linux too hard?

No, you're thinking it's still 2005. The most polished and easy-to-use of Linux distros are fully modern, easy-to-use, and accessible to non-geeks.

Isn't there still a learning curve? Yes, but it's really easy to use, and new stuff is not that bad.
The best first distros to try (but still powerful) are:
Biggest community/best supported/still easy-to-use: Ubuntu
Best UX for users coming from Windows: Zorin
...from Mac: Elementary
Nice and fast: Mint
Ubuntu apps will work on all of these.

Look:

Até a última gota de sangue, negros resistiram para alcançar a liberdade em um sistema, que celebra até hoje seus assassinos. As vozes na senzala e fora dela nunca esqueceram seus verdadeiros heróis, hoje vamos lembrar de dois líderes no RJ: Manoel Congo e Marianna Crioula
O início da história de Manoel não tem data registrada, ele nasceu no Congo mas foi escravizado para viver na cidade que recebeu o título de maior produtora de café do mundo, Vassouras no RJ. Seu dono era um oficial militar Manuel Francisco Xavier.
Manoel tinha um ofício elevado como escravo, era ferreiro. Naquela época criou-se em vassouras uma sociedade para ensinar essa habilidade a alguns escravos. Em algumas sociedades africanas era um trabalho destinado aos reis e outros nobres.

For, err, no apparent reason, trying to customize a #Kubuntu (Bionic) Desktop #LiveCD in order to get it to work on an #Intel #NUC8i7HNK (just like that #Fedora Rawhide pendant which simply works OOTB) for a couple of days now suddenly reminded me of this:
For the record: I'm not (primarily) blaming the hardware here…
Once you find the required parameters for use with "mkisofs" (which are not mentioned in the document you likely refer to first, namely help.ubuntu.com/community/Live…), you're able to re-image an #Ubuntu/#Kubuntu daily #LiveCD with #UEFI support: askubuntu.com/a/504750
