in order for my Bose SoundLink headphones to actually connect as an audio device, I have to connect them, disconnect, and then reconnect again for them to show up.

I've combed through all the sound settings but yeah...

does anyone know what's happening here? please don't spend too much time investigating for just my sake! only if you're curious yourself.

Sedentary # # Is Bad for Our #

If you have a penchant for potato chips and the couch in times of trouble, consider an “opposite signal” strategy that requires little mental effort. When your mind tells you to numb yourself, come to life, instead: Exercise precisely when you most want to cocoon; eat nutrient-dense foods when you most crave junk. A simple way to start practicing this is to go outside for a walk at the moments when you feel the urge to curl up. None other than Hippocrates called walking “man’s best #,” and researchers have long seen it as the cure for many of our physical, psychological, and even social ailments.

Although Trump pardoned the Navy SEAL convicted of misconduct, I'm not sure a pardon universally applies to everything in the UCMJ.

Yea, I was wondering if Putito gives his offspring a blanket pardon, does that mean that they have just plead guilty to every federal statute and law on the books?
Since they haven’t been found guilty of anything(yet)?

Amazon faces a privacy backlash for its Sidewalk feature, which turns Alexa devices into neighborhood WiFi networks that owners have to opt out of | Business Insider India

  • Amazon Sidewalk is launching in the US as an opt-out feature that the company says will connect Echo and Ring doorbells to any nearby Alexa device, even those owned by your neighbors.
  • Amazon says Sidewalk uses WiFi from neighbors to create "a shared network that helps devices work better," but some have raised privacy concerns.

Hell, man... I can't even afford insurance to drive these days. I don't think I'll be converting anything for a while. The good news, though, is that my carbon footprint has shrunk quite a bit lately.

Hello and a big welcome

to everyone new to diaspora*

We're so pleased that you've decided to give diaspora* a try. It's fantastic that you've joined us!

We hope that you quickly find your way here, and enjoy getting connected with people and content.

Here's a few tips for getting started:
  • There are some step-by-step tutorials on our project website covering the basics of how diaspora* works, and how to get connected with people. There's a link to these in the side-bar, should you ever want to read them in future, and there's also an in-app Help section you can access through your user menu (at the right-hand end of the header bar).
  • You can search for people by name or by diaspora* ID (which looks like an email address), if you know it, from the search field in the header bar. You can invite people to join you in diaspora* by sending them a link to our project website, from where they can choose their own pod to register with. Your friends don't need to be on the same pod as you in order to connect and communicate with you.
  • One good way to start getting connected with people is to start following some # of subjects that interest you (maybe #, #, #, or # ... whatever interests you) so that you will see content on those topics in your stream. You can then start following people whose posts you find interesting, by placing them into one of your aspects.
  • If you have any questions, post something with the # or # tag, and people will try to help you. Make sure to make your post public so anyone who can help is able to see it!
diaspora* has some very simple community guidelines, which we hope everyone will feel able to follow so that all members can have the best possible experience here.

We're trying to improve diaspora* all the time, fixing bugs, honing performance and adding new features. But how fast we can do this is limited by the time developers have. To improve diaspora* faster, we need more developers! If you've just signed up and can code, or know someone who can and who might be interested in joining our team, get in touch!

❤ diaspora*

hella, peopul. @Petrus yes, I think some stuff are still difficult and not very friendly, but I registered first time in a pod 5 years ago, it has improved different things XD... mmmmh, but I don't think this reach the level of facebook functionality or even similar, idk (I'm not a programmer anyway) but I imagine servers are tiny in comparison. I'd like the way to connect or to link or to slide images or another things were more comfortable but I feel more ... how I say this... free to comment more things? idk, dark times arrived, it looks like morality Inquisition in social media XD haha, when people is damn mad deeply, like... I find it really problematic, like pressure's pot 🙁 hehe

@Petrus ah, srry I didn't link it decently XD

Being at the top is nice. Staying at the top perpetually is even nicer, albeit more difficult. The same goes for being high; you don't want to do drugs to get there.

OMG yes Swedish pizza in HK!

And it's run by two Yugoslavian Swedes, just like in Sweden!
Diane mastodon (AP)
What makes it Swedish? the pizzas look a lot like smaller thin crust pizzas I frequently see in California
@Diane It cannot be explained. But only Swedish pizzerias have Swedish pizza.
Diane mastodon (AP)
Hm... it sounds like the big difference is the use of different cheeses from the typical Itallian styles.

I've only experienced common US styles, California, New York, Chicago, and Detroit. Sadly it appears Ikea's pizza is not Swedish pizza.
@Diane Nope, IKEA pizza is pan pizza, a whole other thing.
@Diane That article section is a very detailed and accurate description, for the parts of it that can be described rather than experienced.
To me, a Swedish pizza has a dough of a very specific thickness, consistency and shape. The bread itself is primarily an excuse for piling ingredients on.

The integrated experience of the bread, tomato sauce and cheese is different from any US, Italian, German, Japanese or HK pizza I have had. Maybe part of it is the Swedish cheese, but it's also the sauce mix, how everything is applied etc.

The rim is an inch wide and somewhat crispy, but not very. The bottom is millimeter-thin, certainly thinner than 3 mm, and not crispy because of all the sauce and cheese.

The smell as I enter a Swedish pizzeria is unique and brings back a lifetime of experiences.
Leif Lindholm mastodon (AP)
Also, bearnaise.
@Leif Lindholm Right! My judgement of a Swedish pizzeria is 90% based on the quality of their sauce béarnaise.
Michael Vogel friendica
@Diane @Claes Wallin 🇸🇪🇭🇰 European pizza is mostly thin. BTW: From my perspective their pizzas don't look different to the ones that are available in Germany.
Diane mastodon (AP)
I thought they looked pretty similar to "California style" too.

Though maybe other people care more about small differences than I do.
@Diane @Michael Vogel We have California Pizza Kitchen here in HK, and their pizzas remind me more of Pizza Hut pan pizza than they remind me of a Swedish neighborhood pizzeria pizza.

A Swedish pizza is thin as a thin-crust Pizza Hut pizza, but the edge is more like the Californian pizza. And then beyond the bread there's the sauce and other flavoring that distinguishes it.

Looks authentic.

A look at the statistics: Covid vs other death, Danish death vs Swedish death.

Swedish Covid death is at about 6000 people, but 2020 excess death is at about 3000 people. As the highest-risk group is the elderly, and the elder the person the higher the risk, many people had their life shortened, statistically, by a few months.

While Sweden has had a less effective response to the pandemic than Denmark, baseline death is still higher in Denmark.
I don't even think that death rates are the right parameter to judge the impact of covid: in countries with working healthcare systems most people who aren't elderly and already in bad health survive.

What most adults risk when they are unlucky is spending a few *months* in a hospital, of which weeks are spent under intense care (and in the worse cases full recovery can easily go into a year or so): that is going to have a big impact on both the lives of those people and their families and a significant cost on society at large.

I think that's even worse than people having their live shortened by a few months.

(and AFAIK your city is faring much better under that parameter, too, btw)
@Elena ``of Valhalla'' Yes, death is only the bottom-line measurement, there is human suffering that does not get covered by that figure.
