Cared for and tended endangered ecosystems.

Comitted to helping another person find themself. Not guiding, not shaping, just helping with the only motive being that their life satisfaction increases.

It depends on the field and the employer. Some will definitely not do any verification. I wouldn’t go any further than a simple, ‘Yes I have [degree]’ though. Having fraudulent documents made up takes you into a new category of breaking the law. Also, nobody wants your paper records anymore. Anything short of changing the university database and you might as well do it yourself.

Having a degree, I have very little respect for them and don’t even look at it when I am included in hiring decisions especially since requiring degrees perpetuates inequities. Maybe focus on developing the skills for the job you want? That’s what can’t be faked and has actual value.

What kinds of jobs are you looking for? There might be someone here who has good advice for getting one without a degree.

Yeah, afaik it is not widely used by the Spanish speaking community here either unless there is an intersection with queerness and/or English speaking. Also, it is not a new term at all, but it seems to be used more lately.

It is a gender-free alternative for Latino/Latina. In English speaking communities in the US it is pronounced as “latin ex.”

It is interesting to me that the conversation here is focusing on how to help obese people lose weight and not on the relationship dynamic between patients and doctors this NY Times article gives reasons why overweight people distrust doctors.

Research has shown that doctors may spend less time with obese patients and fail to refer them for diagnostic tests. One study asked 122 primary care doctors affiliated with one of three hospitals within the Texas Medical Center in Houston about their attitudes toward obese patients. The doctors “reported that seeing patients was a greater waste of their time the heavier that they were, that physicians would like their jobs less as their patients increased in size, that heavier patients were viewed to be more annoying, and that physicians felt less patience the heavier the patient was,” the researchers wrote.

Physician assistant, Nurse practitioner, Registered nurse. They are different types of medical certifications, but I don’t know the differences between them.

I mix it up, but I absolutely guarantee that my last bite will be my favorite thing.

?..I’m not sure you understand the water cycle or what this article is about. This is about being able to reuse water that has been treated to drinking water standards rather than suffering through drought or allowing sewage overflows. Anyone against this is not seeing the reality of climate change, population growth, or the waste of resources and polution from improperly treated sewage.

I am totally pro-what they are pushing here. I am curious why you put this in the c/collapse?

I don’t want to put words in anyone’s mouth, but I think the problem is that you’re trying to debate what federation is. Do people control the content on their own instances or an instance you federate with control what they put on your server? To someone in the code these questions are not a philosophical debate of the future of federation. They are the essential misunderstanding of what federation means. That is something they have likely had to explain so many times it hurts. They might also be a human with other things happening in their life that have absolutely nothing to do with this post or even lemmy at all. I think it is worth remembering that we have no right to a person’s time or engagement.

Should it work differently? Maybe, but that would mean changing the definition of federation. To someone developing within a fixed model of federation what you are actually asking is to start over, redraw the map, design a new system from scratch. It might be worthwhile, but it is outside the scope of the project they have taken on. Lemmy is going to work the way it does because it is following a model that works that way. The model you describe doesn’t exist yet.

Here’s your opportunity. You can create that model. If you believe it is better maybe others will rally to it. Can you outline precisely who has control of what data on each server? Can you explain how a person or group hosting an instance can satisfy their moral and legal obligations under your system of ‘federation’?

This is my favorite meme of the week… month…idk a long while. I will be sharing at work.

Can confirm for US laptops. They all have ‘wide range’ adaptors.

Whatever you get make sure it is ‘self fertile’ meaning that you don’t need another plant nearby to provide pollen and allow for fruit.

Mine also doesn’t follow the rules set, but it starts on Subscibed, active. It switches back to that if my screen rotates too.

Point taken. It is part of the package you get and most people don’t know that. The ‘get X free with purchase’ thing is just a pet peave of mine. It is basically everywhere in advertising.

People like to take the saying as a challenge, but the spirit of it has always been - if you are trying to learn but you are afraid to ask because it will make you look stupid, don’t worry the present learning and future knowledge is important not any past ignorance.

More like “Simplelogin is included with proton unlimited subscription.” It is hard for something to be free if you also have to pay to get it. Good marketing but not very honest.

Need help choosing a Funkwhale (and other fediverse) instance(s)
I am looking to just dip my toes on a couple of other platforms. What I am finding while trying to choose an instance for Funkwhale (or Friendica, Pixelfed, etc) is that there is very little in the way of descriptions for finding something to match me and I would just be choosing at random. I am using the official sites' server recommendations/lists to look through and am really getting no info that is helpful to me. Does anyone know of other resources? My best option at this point is to use a throw away account to get on any server then spend just enough time interacting to find a good one and try to join it. Does that seem reasonable?

I thought I would throw this out to everyone in an easy way after seeing this post https://lemmy.ca/post/76405 What do you think the lemming mascot of Lemmy should be called? Top level comments should just be the name.

“These are people at their worst moments. Using that data to help other people is one thing, but commercializing it just seems like a real ethical line for a nonprofit to cross.” Jennifer King, privacy and data policy fellow at Stanford University

Opinions on Divested Computing Group
Does anyone have experience with this organization (https://divested.dev)? There isn't any footprint I can find of them outside their repos and message boards. I am specifically interested in their general credibility and legitimacy. To a lesser extent, I'm interested in views of their effectiveness at enhancing privacy and/or security.

Looking for a new mobile OS
I have been running lineageOS on my OnePlus 2. I liked it, but Lineage has stopped supporting my phone. There are two options that I have been able to find as replacements - postmarketOS and /e/OS. Any thoughts on those or other recommendation? Anything that gets security updates, is open source, and is functional meets my needs.

Firefox banned at work
Do any of you have thoughts on a business case for continued use of Firefox for an individual? Why? My employer is moving to uninstall all instances of Firefox on company computers for 'security reasons' in favor of Edge and Chrome. I would be allowed to keep it if I could make a business case for it. There is no legit reason why I can't get my work done with another browser, but I am going to push hoping just being a squeaky wheel is good enough. My guess is folks on here will have clearer thinking on this than me. Does anyone out there think my IT dept is making a good decision?

Anti to Pro
Sometimes defining things by what they aren't creates a lot of ambiguity. As in what do you actually want if not consumerism. So, fellow anti-consumerists, what do you value that is in opposition to consumerism? I am for (pro) the respectful use of resources. We need to give back at least what we take (called mutualism in ecological terms) and consumerism, even in its name, breaks that link and cycle.

Question about wave/particles interacting
Does it make sense to ask: How hard does a photon hit an object? Does the waviness of photons make that a dumb question? If it does then what is a more correct way of conceptualizing the interaction of a photon with, for example, a light receptor? Or does the analogy in my head of a ball hitting a wall fairly represent the behavior of a photon at the moment of impact?

Mid level knowledge
It is easy to find articles and guides designed for laypeople. If you know the right keyword, it is just as easy to find professional/expert level papers and articles. I have noticed that this is the case across fields. Is that what other folks experience? Where do you go for information when laypeople articles are too basic, but every expert level article is beyond you?
