…if a land owner died without a will, that land would be divided up among the owner’s heirs. Once they passed on, the land would be further divided among their heirs. While property might be in a single family’s control for generations, they don’t have legal title or claim to the land. That means…


This is an extremely detailed series and I am thoroughly enjoying the reading. Despite not knowing much about tech, I feel like I’m able to follow along for the most part. Kudos


I think this would be a really cool idea and not one I can think of already so would be interested


Hmmm that’s a good point, and interesting they don’t mention it


Based on the article, I’d say this isn’t a concern either. The point is less “in demand” and more, current systems in place use virgin crude oil to make vanillin, we could help to curb that and help make recycled plastic more appealing an industry to have if there was a product from it that was needed. And of course, capitalist are always claiming demand will never be sated so from that perspective perhaps it makes sense?


…vanillin also can be made synthetically using chemicals derived from petroleum. To create it from plastic, instead, researchers genetically modified a strain of E. coli bacteria so that it can make vanillin from terephthalic acid (TA)—a raw material used in the production of plastic bottles, whi…


"Breathing" Computer system

This is so cool, a passive air cooling system using magnets and water pumps to cool a high performance computer. …


Music I use Metro, mostly for its UI. Most of the other music players in fdroid look kinda ugly or crowded, so Metro was one that works and looks much better (or different). It works and looks like Samsung Music player hence why I picked it.

For note taking app, I enjoy using Notally, it’s the closest to how the Samsung Notes app worked, so I can easily make a todo list or jot down a note (and putting things on seperate lines! Surprising to find some apps didn’t let me?) I also have Joplin to sync some references and such.

I haven’t found a good Diary app yet, but looking for one to use for gardening purposes.

Vpn don’t know, I have NordVPN and they dont have their app on fdroid

Maps, what everyone else suggests

Messenger apps again, what everyone else suggested

Social media again, what others suggested

Peertube I don’t use for uploading videos, I watch using NewPipe

Todo app I use Notally mentioned above! I also have SimpleTask for grocery management but it’s meant to be a todo app. That one has lots of functionality tho so I’m sure it can work well for you!


Money, mainly. In my area, there are jobs offering far more per hour than what I get at my current job. I’m talking double what I make for a job that doesn’t even require a college degree. And it isn’t even like it’s the only news station in the area, there are three total in the area, so they should be offering more.

Outside of that, I do like my job, and probably have far more freedom than most jobs. I question management decisions often, but if you are just chilling then it isn’t a bother


Are US corporations liable for human rights violations in partner companies if they happen overseas? Not according to the latest judgement from the Supreme Court. …


Local news but considering leaving it all behind and starting a farm


To identify dams that might pose the most serious risk to toxic waste sites, Undark searched for dams in the national database that are both high-hazard and older than 50 years, the age after which many dams require renovations. To narrow our search, we selected dams that sit 6 or fewer miles away…


  1. No, in my state we sometimes mention the overall percent of people who had covid, and I’m pretty sure at last count less than 5% of the population had covid. I’m sure this is fairly consistent across the US at least.

  2. Catching covid does not provide enough immunity for future illnesses. You can catch it again, you can catch a stronger varient, there is talk about covid needing a seasonal vaccination like the flu.


I suppose, but isn’t it enough to see the boys hanging out and running around? Must we always have a plot to follow?

(Haha I’m just incredibly not picky when it comes to art, so as long as there is something good I’ll enjoy, I know this isn’t the case for everyone tho)


I’m also looking to get into HAM, since a coworker of mine is super into it…but I still am having problems with maintaining a server so idk if I should get into it


Wish I could read it T-T but good for them! I saw an article before when they were gathering drivers so I’m hoping they are at the stage where they are test running and starting


I want to compose but have no clue what bin to get/make basically. And no where to put it


The city if Philadelphia banned cashless stores, so going to other major cities, it’s wild seeing the prevalence of cashless stores. Where I live cash is still king but I do see the slow switch over happening


Why hate something animated THAT good!?


Work at a news station, so I see the national and local news every day. Also some email subs and social media like lemmy and mastodon, sometimes Tumblr


Not that’s fair, I also don’t care that much for my coworkers to invest the time. Unless I already know something well, I just ignore really


Only spend time trying to unravel someone like that if they are important to you. My dad tends to end up watching a lot of those videos, and he started talking about how covid was a hoaxs by the US gov, and so I said first, some of these “facts” are just plain false, second who benefits from you thinking that, and if that was true, what’s the gameplan for them?

My dad is an extremely logical person, in that he values logic above all else. So I tend to use logic to help guide him out. My mom on the otherhand is far more trusting, so I use her trust in me to affirm what I say is true and try to use experiences to show her, should she believe in anything like that.

That’s why you should only help those you know well. It’s not a one and done conversation, it’s a continous situation.


The words we use reflect our values, or so some people say… depending on your perspective too. As someone who really enjoys language, this is absolutely worthy of a post. If you don’t think something is “worthy” of a post just scroll past it


“Over the past year-and-a-half, I’ve been doing some healing and self-reflective work. And through this work, I’ve had the revelation that I identify as non-binary,” Demi shared. "With that said, I’ll be officially changing my pronouns to they/them. I feel that this best represents the fluidity I …

I’d really love to see someone who is visually impaired to review it
