Every Sikh shrine has a religiously sanctioned moral and humanitarian obligation to serve food
Every Sikh shrine has a religiously sanctioned moral and humanitarian obligation to serve and provide hospitality, provisions, nourishments and meals to any man, regardless of race, creed, religious profession, identification, or affiliation. At the Langar (the temple's community run free kitchen), food is served to all visitors regardless of faith, religion, or background. Only vegetarian food is served and people eat together as equals. The institution of the Sikh langar was started by the first Sikh Guru, Guru Nanak. It was designed to uphold the principle of equality between all people regardless of religion, caste, colour, creed, age, gender, or social status. In addition to the ideals of equality, the tradition of langar expresses the ethics of sharing, community, inclusiveness, and oneness of humankind.



TIL there's open and thriving alternative to Apple's M1 chip-building technique. It's also insanely fast and energy efficient. It's RISC-V
The speed and the efficiency of these chips are just insane: > "As just one example, a recent microprocessor design using RISC-V has a clock speed of 5 gigahertz, well above a recent, top-of-the-line Intel Xeon server chip, E7, running at 3.2 gigahertz. Yet the novel RISC-V chip burns just 1 watt of power at 1.1 volts, less than one percent of the power burned by the Intel Xeon." ([Source](https://www.msn.com/en-us/news/technology/risc-v-the-linux-of-the-chip-world-is-starting-to-produce-technological-breakthroughs/ar-BB1bv5m6)) Perhaps reading from the source is better? 🙂 https://riscv.org/ Sorry if I'm preaching to the choir, given the type of Lemmy users, in terms of already knowing about RISC-V and in terms of assuming y'all know about the M1. Still, I just learned about RISC-V today, and I'm awed!





My brain is broken. Broken, I tell you. Tom Stoppard! Rosencrantz! Sean Connery! Guildenstern! I like reading Tom Stoppard plays even though they suffer from the "ah this woman was written by a man" aura.
