If you need another reason to care about who wins the US Senate in November, read The Atlantic's cover story:
"If Democrats win back the Senate and hold the House, then all roads laid out in the Electoral Count Act lead eventually to a Biden presidency. The reverse applies if Republicans hold the Senate and unexpectedly win back the House. But if Congress remains split, there are conditions in which no decisive outcome is possible—no result that has clear force of law."

Hopefully the Member States will benefit from these changes.🖤 https://european-pirateparty.eu/technical-support-instrument-will-be-a-great-help-for-member-states/
What is more #POSIX ally correct: (a) or (b)?
(a) assume that the host system defines 'localhost' and resolves it to 127.0.0.1 or ::1; or
(b) assume that the hostname (e.g. the stdout of 'hostname') is resolved by the host's dns server to a valid IP (either to 127.0.01 or ::1, or to an externally known IP)?
Here's an example story that was only possible due to #BlueLeaks:
> Leaked Documents Show Police Knew Far-Right Extremists Were the Real Threat at Protests, Not “Antifa”
> An analysis of leaked law enforcement documents reveals an obsession with “antifa” despite evidence of threats of violence to police and protesters.

2016: the final (last day pre-election) fivethirtyeight estimate was that Trump's chance to win was 33%.
Toss a normal dice, and in 2016:
* Clinton wins if the result is 1, 2, 3 or 4;
* Trump wins with 5 or 6.
The result (5 or 6) was completely unsurprising given the prediction.
2020-09-13: toss an octahedral dice:
* Biden wins with 1, 2, 3, 4, 5 or 6;
* Trump wins with 7 or 8.

Tre ragazze sono state arrestate dagli omini verdi a #Minsk

Purtroppo non è riuscita a salvare le ragazze, finiranno nelle segrete senza diritti di #Lukashenko
Fair summary of #SudaneseRevolution, Edward Thomas + Alex de Waal:
"The Sudanese have overthrown a dictator and sealed a peace deal, by themselves and without international support."

I should have included you here, sorry :) - see https://framapiaf.org/@boud/104798132493252721 asking about real-world experience in ethically organised (no #GAFAM services, no #ZoomSlackPrison services) online science conferences.
(This is meant to be the equivalent of a forward in email - I haven't discovered how to "forward" in mastodon...)
@civodul @reproducible_builds - Does anyone know of online (COVID-19 epoch) science workshops/conferences aiming at something like the "look and feel" of f2f science conferences, that have been or will be held using #FOSS and ethical online services only? I'm only aware of #DebConf20.
