Wie viel Erdöl gibt es am Nordpol/Arctic? - How much Oil is in the Arctic/Northpole? - Erdöl geht zu 60% in Transport und 40% in Plastik

Kurze Antwort: 7 Jahre

Assange gets no fair trial

“They” announced it – and – they follow through.

“They” the secretive deep state of “make believe” western democracies play their full power and treat Assange like a terrorist.

What worries me most is – that – by setting an example for people that speak the truth – not only truth is silenced but “The West” can officially declare itself morally bankrupt and stop blaming dictatorships like north Korea or any other state for human rights violation.

Assange will get no fair trial in Britain and another even less fair trial in the US.

He now deeply regrets what Facebook has become:

"The business model of converting lives into data, and then using that data to manipulate behaviour... that's just morally wrong."

To avoid confusion, here's a step-by-step guide to putting your #Wordpress blog on the #Fediverse:

1. Log into your Wordpress site

2. Go to "Plugins", "Add New", search for "ActivityPub" plugin, install and activate it.

3. Go to "Users", then "Your Profile". Scroll down, and right at the bottom there's a new section called "Fediverse" with the blog's Fediverse address.

4. Share this address on #Mastodon etc, people will be able to follow it by pasting it into the search box and following it!

Just to follow up on the recent post about ethical phone makers @Fairphone , a number of people asked if there was a more ethical OS on it too.

Fairphone comes with stock Google Android by default, but
Fairphone also make their own de-googlised version of Android called Fairphone Open:

It doesn't come with the Fairphone by default, but because it's provided by Fairphone themselves it's relatively easy to install:

SPSS is a proprietary statistical analysis software acquired by IBM in 2009. It offers statisticians, researchers, and students with advanced statistical analysis functions integrated within the program. SPSS also provides seamless integration with big data.
SPSS is not free and it's not cheap, though it does not work well on Linux systems as it does on Windows, so here we will provide a list of open-source free SPSS alternatives.

If you want people to find your public posts on Mastodon or the rest of the Fediverse, there's something important you need to know:

📣 USE HASHTAGS!

For privacy reasons, the only way to search for posts on here is by hashtag. If you don't include tags, no one will see your post in searches.

Hashtags have to be spelt exactly, so #MastoTip and #MastoTips would bring up two separate sets of results. Include multiple tags if you're not sure.

Last week, Mastodon adopted a beginner-friendly default interface 👍

So, maybe this would be a good time to spread the word about Mastodon to a wider audience?

If you're on Facebook/Twitter, you could do a little post about Masto with a link to https://joinmastodon.org ? And a link to a good instance running 2.9 or above?

(Also, I think some people were doing Mastodon posters?)

If people hear about Mastodon from many different sources, they are more likely to try it.
