How to avoid an echo chamber.

As great as Mastodon and other open source social media are, is there a danger of the echo chamber effect as would exist on any social media.

As I get used to the conversations in here, I notice that Mastodon seems to attract people with diverse but similar interests that are generally sympathetic to one another: #ecology #tech #trans #art #anarchy #opensource

Is there a danger of exclusivity?

Has anyone written about this?

Curious to hear thoughts..

The great news for Greta and her young friends: "Green-piss" included with neo-Nazis on UK counter-terror list



A counter-terrorism police document distributed to medical staff and teachers as part of anti-extremism briefings included Greenpeace, Peta and other non-violent groups as well as neo-Nazis, the Guardian has learned.

The guide, produced by Counter Terrorism Policing, is used across England as part of training for Prevent, the anti-radicalisation scheme designed to catch those at risk of committing terrorist violence.

Last week, police said documents uncovered by the Guardian that listed the environmental protest group Extinction Rebellion (XR) alongside far-right extremists and jihadists were a local error.

But the list of groups viewed as a potential concern contained in the new 24-page document includes Extinction Rebellion. It also includes Greenpeace – among whose supporters are Dame Judi Dench, Stephen Fry, Gillian Anderson and Joanna Lumley – and the ocean pollution campaigners Sea Shepherd, whose supporters include Sean Connery and Pierce Brosnan. Also included is Stop the Badger Cull, which is backed by Sir Brian May, the Queen guitarist.

(...) The last page of an accompanying visual guide seen by the Guardian advises people to report “any concerns identified via this document” using an online portal for reporting suspicious activity that is operated by Counter Terrorism Policing under the slogan: “Action counters terrorism”.

80$ cardboard box… or How to sell bullshit for young Greta T. and her friends



Savannah design studio reimagines cardboard box as chair

Jennifer Hahn

28 November 2019

After more than a year of prototyping, Savannah studio Donttakethisthewrongway has unveiled its design for a chair that consists of a single cardboard box.

In order to make it stand the test of time, it has been carefully “over-engineered” to be resistant to both wear and water.

“I think a cardboard box has the potential of being a chair without trying to,” explained Eric Primo, one part of the three-man collective which also includes Nick Wargo and Crawford George.




“An accidental chair – maybe not better but a different kind of a chair,” he said. “It is strong yet light, and it is essentially always ‘packed’ so moving or shipping it is quite easy.”

Turning the cardboard box into a seating design that would meet the trio’s strict demands for quality and durability was a labour intensive process.

“We made several chair prototypes, all with varying structural components. They were used as chairs for over a year,” Primo told Dezeen.

“During that time, they were opened periodically to inspect their internal and external wear. We paid close attention to how each wore over time and tweaked the design based on what we learned.”

The final design takes the form of a simple cube in classic cardboard brown, adorned only with a few flourishes like the words “this closed box acts as a chair” emblazoned on the side, alongside signposting to help users discern the bottom from the top.

On the outside, the box reveals little of the days-long production process that goes into every piece.

“Each chair is handmade in our studio and begins as a double corrugated-cardboard-box die cut, that is then folded into shape,” said Primo.

“Custom scoring tools help form sharp corners and edges before each flap of the box is flattened using a foot roller to allow it to sit flat and square on the ground,” he continued. “The chair’s bottom flaps are then glued with PVA glue and pressed together.”

An internal cardboard grid structure is added for stability and to help the box keep its shape throughout use. Then, the other flaps are glued shut before a cushion is glued to the top, which is especially engineered to be both comfortable and resistant to denting.

“The cushion consists of three sheets of corrugated cardboard which are laser cut, flattened with a foot roller and glued separately with wood glue,” he explained.

“At each stage of the gluing process, boxes are clamped for 12 hours and after that they are sanded and the feet screen printed along with the other graphics.”

The trio tried out various water repellent coatings throughout the prototyping phase and finally settled on a silicon dioxide spray, which is added as the last step.

Also attached to the bottom is a shipping label, a nod to the role that cardboard boxes play in all of our lives.

Birds pics.
Photo taken in a garden in south of France.
Several kinds of birds are visiting this garden every day.

Each year there is less of those birds, some species disapeared...
Every one knows why, but only a few of us are realy trying to stop the apocalyps.

Look at those birds while there is still some of them...and please take actions !

She seems like a very happy young girl looking forward to a bright and wonderful future.

... By the way. it's not a joke!
I think that this annoyed girl has a very happy future. For example:
- UNICEF Goodwill Ambassador;
- The leader of the Green party;
- The head of European Youth Parliament;
- The head of European Parliament Committee on the Environment, Public Health and Food Safety;
- UN Goodwill Ambassadors (as Angelina Jolie, happy mom of 30 :) Vietnamese kids);
- Nobel Peace Prize;
- ...
- PROFIT!

Whole ecosystems are shifting dramatically north in the Great Plains, according to analysis of birds.

"The northernmost ecosystem boundary shifted more than 365 miles north, with the southernmost boundary moving about 160 miles from the 1970 baseline."

"To arrive at their conclusions, the researchers analyzed 46 years' worth of avian data collected for the North American Breeding Bird Survey, a US Geological Survey program designed to track bird populations. That survey included more than 400 bird species found within a 250-mile-wide transect stretching from Texas to North Dakota."

"The team then separated bird species into groups based on their body masses and searched for gaps in the distribution of the groups. Those gaps effectively act like the DNA signature of an ecosystem, allowing the team to identify where one ecosystem ends and another begins."

"Over their study area, and over time, the researchers identified three distinct ecosystem boundaries, with a fourth -- and thus a fourth ecosystem regime -- appearing in the final decade."

"The fact that the northernmost boundary shifted more than its southernmost counterpart reflects a well-documented phenomenon known as Arctic amplification, suggesting that climate change is at play."

Analysis finds U.S. ecosystems shifting hundreds of miles north

Fertilizer plants emit 100 times more methane than reported -- ScienceDaily

Emissions of methane from the industrial sector have been vastly underestimated, researchers from Cornell University and Environmental Defense Fund have found.

Using a Google Street View car equipped with a high-precision methane sensor, the researchers discovered that methane emissions from ammonia fertilizer plants were 100 times higher than the fertilizer industry's self-reported estimate. They also were substantially higher than the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) estimate for all industrial processes in the United States.
