Because a_Ha’s account is now hanging by a thread it’s time to stop it.

Many exchanges here where fruitful for me, so, i hope it was the same for at least a few of you.

Since we discussed in private the banning of Serge Tarkovski with a positive outcome, it might be appropriate for you to make one more comment here.

Thank you for your concern.

Russia's state TV hit by stream of resignations
2022-03-16 [BBC](https://www.bbc.com/news/world-europe-60763494) - - [source_2](https://www.yahoo.com/entertainment/more-russian-tv-news-employees-173706823.html) - - Hope this will snowball ::: spoiler Head of the article "When Marina Ovsyannikova burst into Russian living rooms on Monday's nightly news, denouncing the war in Ukraine and propaganda around it, her protest highlighted a quiet but steady steam of resignations from Russia's tightly controlled state-run TV. Ukrainian President Volodymyr Zelensky has thanked her, appealing to anyone working for what he calls Russia's propaganda system to resign. Any journalist working in what he calls the fourth branch of power risks sanctions and an international tribunal for "justifying war crimes", he warns." :::

(head of your post)

A Russian drone flew over Poland before entering Ukrainian air space where it was shot down, Ukraine’s military has claimed.

The Ukrainian air force command said in a statement last night that the drone flew into NATO airspace, accusing Moscow of a “provocation”.

The drone first circled over the site in Yavoriv, western Ukraine, which was hit by a salvo of cruise missiles on Sunday (2022-03-13), in an apparent attempt to assess the result, the officials said. It then delved into Poland before returning to Ukrainian air space, where it was shot down by Ukraine’s air defences.

Ukrainian military sources said it was understood to be a Russian Forpost drone, which is a licensed copy of the Israeli Searcher drone. It is not flown by any (…)

Will be awesome to play this, one day, with peace of mind 😌

“Russia’s military is approaching the Ukrainian capital of Kyiv from several directions in a possible effort to encircle the city, but its forces have been stalled for several days, partly due to stiff resistance from Ukrainian troops, a senior U.S. defense official told reporters Monday.”

i don’t follow either … why should there be rule breaks or contradictions ?
Should i worry of being targeted here ?
i am not coming back to this tread.

i just made a new post on the latest developments on this …

Anti-war in Russia :
Russian police detained Marina Ovsyannikova, the editor of Channel One who showed up with anti-war banner on air. Lawyer Pavel Chikov said that a protocol was drawn up against her under the article 20.3.3 on military censorship for discrediting the russian armed forces.

Russia fires official who said China refused to supply aircraft parts

La situation en Ukraine s’est grandement détériorée depuis ces quinze derniers jours ; ma position est franchement pour la défense de l’Ukraine - - es-tu encore dans le relativisme ?

A heartbreaking post made by a true war victim was the first post here until it was deleted because …well, because of his dire situation. See, he let his heart speak too much and this … against a repugnant troll.
He then said : “Please forgive my speech…” yet he was banned for a month from WorldNews.

Moderation work is certainly challenging and yet … i would have hoped for a little more compassion for his situation, yes.

Thank you for your concern.


Un post déchirant fait par une vraie victime de guerre fut ici en tête jusqu’à ce qu’il soit supprimé parce que… eh bien parce que son auteur est en situation désastreuse. Voyez, il a trop laissé parler son cœur, et ce contre un troll répugnant.
Puis il a dit : « S’il vous plaît, pardonnez mon discours… » et a été interdit pendant un mois de WorldNews.

Le travail de modération est certainement un défi et pourtant … J’aurais espéré un peu plus de compassion, oui.

Merci de votre sollicitude.

that’s very good, i was just afraid of some favoritism, no one is perfect but i guess (±) you are doing a good job.

What’s lemmy.ml stance on Ukraine ?
Users should know. Will you, or other administrators, issue a statement ?

Ukraine deserves more help : it’s a shame nuclear threat is preventing that. May you receive all the support you need.

my comment was not clear so i made an edit, sorry for the confusion.

Since this :
Admin. Dessalines on “US atrocities”
We should at least remain critical. Thanks for your work 👍.

Debunking of these falsehoods is quite important, so thanks.

James Webb's telescope : what do you expect ?
History repeats itself right ? Before Hubble's telescope, scientists were saying : "it will show the hedge of the universe, where there is no Galaxies yet formed". Remind me in 6 months.

"Toy cosmos"s for anyone ?
Pedagogy, or even physics, may benefit from "toy cosmos"s. Mine start with a three sphere (s3). Then i try some (naive) Physics : **hyp.1** : if it shrinks, i see the photon i put inside gaining enormous amounts of energy. (blue shifted at each round trips) Decrease of spacetime with creation of (boson) energy becomes part of the playground. **hyp.2** : since "Schwarzschild radius" (for on b.h. of M~0~) inside our (big unfriendly) universe has been found to be : r~(s)0~ = 2GM~0~ / c² So, in flat space, say i put 1000 (mini) black holes, each one of mass : M~1~ = M~0~ / 1000 Their total (Schwarzschild) volume (for 1000 x M~1~ black holes) is about : ( 1000 x 3/4pi x r~1~³ ) Then, they all fit comfy inside (v~0~) : ( 1 x 3/4pi x r~0~³ ) which is the (Schwarzschild) volume of their collective masse. (volume ratio is 1000³) So, what i say is that one can bend spacetime using many well spaced black holes that collectively have one larger (rs~0~) Schwarzschild radius. And now, flat space is bent to s3 with room to play inside. Cosmic radius to cosmic energy relations can be tried here. Would black holes, in this, lose their energy to other objects ? (should this be posted in AskLemmy ?)

Rant : Stupid smartphone use of proximity sensor during phone call
After stupid update of "phone application", had to tape over the proximity sensor ! ... otherwise there's no way to reliably shut the screen during a phone call. Whenever the screen is on, my face touching the screen triggers any stupid functions 🙄 Had to try and test a few location because it was not located at the selfie camera. Once again it shows we are not the customers ; we are the product 😑

Social mindfulness
![](https://lemmy.ml/pictrs/image/wNp8iPxr3m.webp) Social mindfulness was positively related to the established measure of prosociality called **SVO** (social value orientation is a person’s preference about how to allocate resources between the self and another person) at the national and individual levels.
