#GospelToday (Jn 15:18-21)
"If the world hates you, realize that it hated me first.

If you belonged to the world, the world would love its own; but because you do not belong to the world, and I have chosen you out of the world, the world hates you.

Remember the word I spoke to you, 'No slave is greater than his master.' If they persecuted me, they will also persecute you. If they kept my word, they will also keep yours.

And they will do all these things to you on account of my name, because they do not know the one who sent me."

@TechnicolorRainbow Time to vote on the next book!

We had a fun discussion at the last meeting and everyone was enthusiastic about the book, so it's time for a new one.

Pick what you'd like to read, or you want somone else to read and talk about. (Reading the book is not a prerequisite to participating!)

2460. Vaccinated 

title text: I built a model that combines local case rates and vaccination stats to estimate when it's reasonable to attend various types of party, but I forgot to include anything about where to find them.

"I would begin interviews with sources who seemed lucid and prudent and who insisted, like Kean, that they were interested only in vetted data, and that they used the term “U.F.O.” in the strictly literal sense—whether the objects were spaceships or drones or clouds, we just didn’t know. An hour later, they would reveal to me that the aliens had been living in secret bases under the ocean for millions of years, had genetically altered primates to become our ancestors [...]"

"The point of using the term “unidentified,” he said, was “to help remove the stigma.” He told me, “At some point, we needed to just admit that there are things in the sky we can’t identify.”"

#GospelToday (Jn 15:12-17)
"This is my commandment: love one another as I love you.

No one has greater love than this, to lay down one's life for one's friends.

You are my friends if you do what I command you.

I no longer call you slaves, because a slave does not know what his master is doing. I have called you friends, because I have told you everything I have heard from my Father.

It was not you who chose me, but I who chose you and appointed you to go and bear fruit that will remain, so that whatever you ask the Father in my name he may give you.

This I command you: love one another."

102 000 vaccinations contre la au Québec hier. 40 % de la population vacciné jusqu'à maintenant. Pas si mal.

"I was inspired by my environment. I saw that a lot of indigenous #trees have been cut and for that, we decided to restore the trees. Inspired by Stay Green Foundation, we started took up the challenge to plant cashew trees in the early 2000s because there is #NoPlanetB. We generate revenue from the Cashews as well which we use to take care of our families and our basic needs.
This has equally created employment for a lot of young people like myself. I have a higher diploma in Sales & Marketing and an advance diploma in IT but today, I do not worry about getting a job.
I work in my farm and I have employed about 6 people. Every year, I in directly work with more than 20 people."

1956: Models wearing swimsuits and Ortho Ammonium Sulfate bags, pose next to bagging machines because shutup it was the '50s.

me: so nails in the US are measured in pennies because that has something to do with the historical price of them right
wikipedia: yep, it's how much they cost in the 15th century in the standard unit of sale, guess what that was
me: idk
wikipedia: the "long hundred" (120 nails)

For everyone celebrating: As of right now (and for the foreseeable future), patents aren't slowing vaccine production. Physical limitations on how much starting materials are, and I don't think software people get this?

Only yesterday I said that I thought the odds came from a laboratory were about 20%. After reading the article by , I now estimate the odds as a bit over 50%, more likely than not.

It seems that the Wuhan Institute of Virology was researching how coronaviruses could become more infectious to humans with a level of biosafety similar to a dentist's office!

The probability of a deliberate release to the public still seems very small.

@clacke That’s an interesting idea. Actually, as a Guix person, the only thing I like about language-specific package managers is that they simplify our work. ;-) But having hacked on Guile, I understand why language developers would want to have their own package tool; it’s a powerful way to tie the community together.

(Guix has become Guile’s de facto package manager. I think it could work for other languages too, but it leads to different Conway’s law dynamics.)
