@darius But are those the same phenomenon? When we talk about left wing radicalization, is that they same process as right wing radicalization, only toward a different set of political/economic ideals? Or are we really using the word radicalization to cover to different processes, with two differing sets of conditions that could be addressed without impinging on one another?
On the ecological impact of rewilding — reintroducing fauna and megafauna to the Arctic to bolster the carbon capture of permafrost:
The annual amount of material humans consume has passed 100 billion tons, quadruple what is was in the 1970s and an average of 13 tons per person.
@luxpris Yes, constant web searches are the norm, and not just for noobies. I'd recommend finding a few resources you trust and bookmarking those. Makes it easier than combing through Google or DDG results a dozen times per day.
@dgold I haven't. In part because I haven't particularly loved the fiction of his that I've read.
Incidentally, the journal of manga and anime studies is called, get this, Mechademia: https://muse.jhu.edu/issue/40452
FWIW, Project Muse DOES offer RSS feeds, but they're all listed on a single page, instead of each feed appearing on its corresponding journal page: https://muse.jhu.edu/feeds/list_feeds?type=article
Ethically sourced goods with Fair Trade labels may cost more, but they help ensure better conditions for farmers in impoverished countries. And that’s important, considering how many things, like sugar and chocolate, are farmed.
I like to cultivate the attitude that, if I can’t afford something without relying on post-imperialist systems of exploitation, then I can’t afford it at all.
@Julian There are self-hosted bookmarking apps, if that's something you need. And there's nothing stopping you from using Pocket that way, except maybe the absence of an import function. Just set up some folders to categorize them.
@nx Theoretically I could use the reader's browser to access my RSS feeds (I self-host a web-based RSS reader), but that would be pretty clunky, I think.
Right now, I check my feeds on my phone or computer, and save whatever looks interesting to Pocket, which is integrated directly into the Kobo OS. I've got cron set to refresh my RSS feeds only four times a day to cut down on the temptation to check compulsively.
@jaranta Yeah, I'm still working on that feature. My library offers free access to Oxford's Very Short Introduction series, so soon I will have a dangerously rudimentary understanding of just about everything.
I don't love e-books and probably never will, but I'm a little surprised at how well this e-reader has slotted into my reading. I'm using it to read some e-books that I picked along the way, but the big boost I've gotten out of it pertains to blogs and long form articles from the internet. Much easier to focus on and digest in this format. They're feed to me by RSS, and I pass the ones that look promising through Pocket to the reader.
My curated list of online #theology study resources is now back online! Sorry for a long downtime.
