**Sending back climate refugees may violate right to life: U.N. body**
"Governments need to take into account the climate crisis when considering the deportation of asylum seekers, the United Nations said in a landmark ruling that could pave the way for future climate refugees. "
Asking for career advice
Unless you count shorter visits to other universities, I've been at the same institution my whole career. The accepted wisdom is that one should switch universities after getting a PhD. I could probably get an assistant professorship somewhere in the world, but I'm not sure whether I should. I'm currently employed in one of the places that is arguably one of the top places in my field. Any thoughts or experiences?
Anupam Basak from @Nitrux_NX@twitter.com talking about their awesome MauiKit project.
Make apps easily for desktop, Plasma Mobile, Android and even Windows !
He also has demos to showcase !! Super cool ! Qt apps as an Android app, wow!!
@kensanata Some problems here: often, everybody has to leave on the same hour (that's why we have rush hours), so that scenario can't work for most people.
And even if it did, if my personal observations are correct, very few people buy and use cars because they need them, at least in places with proper transport.
Many keep cars b/c prestige or b/c it "frees" them to go anywhere they want. Many want large cars not b/c they go offroad or need space, but b/c it looks "cool" and/or "strong".
That is why I always vote against car projects if I can. Sure, it is a pain for car owners. It’s a pain for people depending on car owners. But apparently this pain is the only thing that pushes public policies towards better public transport infrastructure and that changes the way we live. We will need to work closer to home. Go spend holidays where all the tourists are. Walk more. That’s the way forward that doesn’t seem to end in the car apocalypse.

Long explanation of distributed git workflows I sent to a client to explain the SourceHut approach
$jim is the reviewer for patches landing in $jim's tree, you're the reviewer for patches landing in your tree, etc. Part of the advantage of this workflow is that it's an informal, loose process. You send the patches to the mailing list, $jim reviews them and incorporates them into his tree, and anyone who trusts $jim pulls his tree and gets the patches.
If you disagree with $jim's changes to your patches, bring it up so that it can be fixed in later commits. Ideally $jim would only make tweaks to your patches, such as rebasing to reorder or merge or split up commits in a manner which makes more sense to him, or correcting typos or style errors as a courtesy. For any larger problems with the patchset, he's more likely to kick it back to you with feedback so you can amend the commits and send along a v2 at your discretion.
When I look into my crystal ball, I see $jim's tree, my tree, and perhaps dozens more, co-existing forever and pulling patches from each other as necessary. When you eventually deploy this to production, you'll probably end up hosting your own tree somewhere, planting a flag in the ground: this is the version of $project that we're running on $company production. When $othercompany makes improvements to their $project, you might pull changes from them, or in the other direction when you improve your branch. We use the mailing list to keep us informed of everyone else's work.
This is how Linux works - there are thousands of trees in the wild, from Linus' "upstream" tree, distro-specific trees, trees for individuals like Greg KH or even my tree, trees for larger kernel teams like linux-drivers, linux-dri (graphics), linux-ext4, etc. In fact, hardly anyone uses Linus' tree at all - your distro is running their own tree. The only time I use Linus' tree even as a kernel hacker is as a reasonably sane base to apply other patches to. Many kernel trees are even on GitHub and accept pull requests!
How Wolves Change Rivers
This one is really interesting (and short), definitely recommend you to watch it.
Just came home after cycling through rain. In January. In #Umeå.
Something is wrong.
On top of this, it seems temperatures will go below 0°C, meaning that all of Umeå will be covered by ice tomorrow morning.
Bike will be hazardous. Buses will drive off road. I might have to walk to work tomorrow.
