This patent obviously shouldn’t have survived the examination stage as it is a simple translation of an #OpenSource #OpenHardware project to patent language, but alas - it was granted. First to file principle meets bad quality of examination. Le sigh. techdirt.com/2022/06/24/ridicu

Small changes in our energy usage can also have a positive impact.

When paired with efficiency measures, they can impact prices and reduce our energy bills.

With the #REPowerEU Plan, we are also stepping up our emergency preparedness.

We strongly condemn the use of sexual violence as a weapon of war.

There are more and more reports about crimes committed by Russian troops in Ukraine, especially against women and children.

The perpetrators of these heinous crimes will be held accountable.

The mounting and credible allegations of rape and sexual violence used during the Russian invasion of Ukraine are extremely alarming.

We announce €1.5 million for a dedicated @UNFPA@twitter.com project to support sexual and gender-based violence survivors in Ukraine.

The rubbish when all the way up to 2009, not sure what sparked people to stop dumping stuff at the end of this garden around the year of the big crash!

Crazy to think that no one has cleaned up this pile of rubbish in the garden in over 25 years.

I believe this really highlights renting culture in Ireland where:
- Landlord does the absolute minimum.
- Renter doesn't feel at home & feels it's temporary so doesn't tend to the property.

Sad to see, but satisfying to tidy it up!

The Regional Youth Library in Chernihiv used to be full of enthusiastic readers.

On 11 March, Russian bombs reduced the historic building to rubble.

Now that it has been freed from occupation, Chernihiv is developing a reconstruction strategy.

Historically, every exodus to Mastodon has been short lived with little staying power. Just like google services, it's much more convenient to have a feed spoon fed to you than to actually work at it for a better more relevant feed. We humans are a fickle bunch.
