A spectre is haunting Europe — the spectre of cheap books. 🧐

I can't tell whether UK publishers were serious, but the reality of post is duller.

Although Genius lost their lawsuit techdirt.com/articles/20200811 , I suspect a crackdown on databases is still ongoing.

panels for months had broken links to their source, , which went offline in June 2021; now they only include 3 lines of a song's lyrics and a footer "Source: MetroLyrics".

in retail is largely a choice nowadays: automation allows "spoilage reductions of 10-40 %"; more waste can be avoided by accepting some empty shelves for ultra-fresh food.

Found now (from a generic search engine): the preprint is actually on . doi.org/10.1101/2021.07.14.212

One more reason to include a link: how can a copyeditor find such a "typo", without a link?

I’m a bit on edge. In 12 hours the Hon’ble European Court of Justice has announced they will pronounce judgment onto our plea. I have no notion which way this ax will swing, but it is Bastille Day, so it will most certainly swing.

Unbelievable. Alito actually embraced this reckless theory that everything containing the word "shall" is subject to litigation by anyone, is not .

I wonder if he'll change mind when someone sues the President for that Thanksgiving Day proclamation.

Arabianranta Library

This is the first #library in my series which doesn't have it's own dedicated building. It was not always so. The history of the library goes back to 1954 when it was by the name #Toukola library. With the end of the factories in the area, the library was finally decommissioned in 2002.

The #Arabianranta area, which is a part of Toukola, was built between 2000 and 2015. With a final population of 7,500, library services were again needed, and Toukola library was reborn as the Arabianranta library in the iconic Arabia shopping center, which was built in a renovated factory building.

It's great that a new area gets its own library and this makes me wonder why #Kalasatama, with an estimated 30,000 people living here once it's complete, doesn't have plans to have a local library. This is a huge mistake in my opinion. #Libraries offer information, digital services and a place to spend time at for free for anyone, irregardless of wealth or status. And having these services locally is extremely important, just like having local grocery shops is important.

What did I get?

Camilla Mickwitz - Mimosan Syntymäyö. A great classic storybook of a little witch called Mimosa and her birthday party. Also made as a TV animation.
