Why do prime numbers make these spirals?

This is wicked cool to watch. It doesn't get too technical till all the visual fun has been displayed. It's like telling a joke, then explaining why it's funny.

Is There a Revolution for Women In Science? Are Things Finally Changing?

A great episode investigating #UnconsciousBias in #Academia (where they think they are imune). I didn't really have a clue what Unconscious #Bias was before hearing about it in this episode, but now I kind of know that I don't fully understand something I knew nothing about before.

I've often heard people hurry to inject the argument that we should select based on #Merit, not by skin color or sex-organs at birth, whenever #AffirmativeAction or some other hiring rules come to play and it sounds tempting to accept it despite that its usually angry white males who deliver that argument. This #Podcast delivers #objective, #empirical #evidence that refutes the idea that our current society can accurately perform #MeritBased #Hiring even when we are trying to do it. We must do some kind of skewing of our aim to be on the ideal target because our unconscious bias is making us perform consistently off target.

Screaming Into The Void: How Outrage Is Hijacking Our Culture, And Our Minds


[He said knowingly with a smug sense of #Outrage and #Righteous #Indignation.] The gist of this episode is that we have #Evolutionary reward systems to be outraged at a person's reprehensible actions, but that sub-system was developed with small groupings of humanoids in face-to-face interactions, not #Electronic #SocialMedia.

There are lots of things to say about this episode of the #HiddenBrain #Podcast, and I'll start with my own personal worry that I'm part of the problem. I feel like I'm posting important content that is worth people's time to think about and I'm convinced that it will lead to a better world, but...

I also have this #Hypothesis that EVERYBODY thinks they are doing the right thing for the right reasons at all times. If I scrutinize the state of affairs at the times in my past when I made regrettable mistakes, I could see how I was mistakenly doing wrong while thinking I was the hero doing the right thing, AND making the world a better or safer place! If I give a #Deplorable person's actions a charitable review, I can see how they are misguided and thought they were doing the right thing and were making the world a better place despite doing the opposite with their actions.

It seems like open-minded #Discourse with people who are #Disagreeable to your position (as opposed to you personally), is a great way to find out when your favorite idea isn't built on solid ground.

If you think you are an #Influencer somewhere on the #SurveillanceCapitalism #SocialMedia or on a #Federated system, I urge you to listen to this short and powerful podcast and reflect on yourself with unbiased scrutiny to see if you are part of the problem or part of the solution.



CD201: WTF is the Federal Reserve?

Okay, I'm really getting a 💖 for this Jen Briney person. I haven't heard all her work yet, but of the things I have heard I'm #Enamored!

I'm jumping ahead in her #Podcast list to a recent episode and for a person who didn't understand the #FederalReserve #Bank to get it so right and with such a wonderful attitude of #Contempt is truly #Amazing. She's worth you donating money to her as an ongoing basis.

I know of no other source who so cleanly exposes the #USA's #Legislation an how it affects everybody in such a #Populist way. Someday she will be known as an #American #Hero for her #Journalistic work.

What does the bond market tell us about the economy?

So why are #Bonds (or specifically #Treasuries), going in the @Stock Picking Discussion you ask? Because their's very few long-range indicators of what the future will be like. (My personal favorite is population, but that will be another post because it's highly nuanced.)

Sean McHenry & Kai Ryssdal really condense a message and translate it well to normal language so that its obvious why you should care about the #BondMarket and #IntrestRates / #Yeild on a daily or weekly basis.




#TBill #TenYearNote

@Grant Rostig Hey, WTF are you doing with those weird email invitations for people to join this server then friend you? They went to my outbound mail handler at mailgun and bounced off the authentication wall. They landed in my servers rejected mail inbox. I just noticed them tonight after upgrading Friendica.

Why don't you just do regular eMail with whatever you used to sign up with?
Grant Rostig Friendica (AP)
You expressed anger and or criticism and used the F word. It was directed at my action, with the word "you", not an inanimate object.
That's up to you if you want to take the worst possible reading of it. You're trying to be literal and not literal at the same time. "WTF" was an adverb attached to the action of what you were doing, not you as a human, but if you need this for a win, fine.

Also, the string literal "WTF" is different than the explicit "what the fuck" in a similar way as the expression "the N-word" is. You must get offended by the world very often.
Grant Rostig Friendica (AP)
I was not terribly offended, but people react differently to words, and have different standards for politeness. 😀
Grant Rostig Friendica (AP)
I am evaluating Friendica, but using your installation. I did a simple "invite others" and it failed and it got me shouted at by you. At this point I don't think I want to take the time to actually install and test Friendica, nor attempt to write bug reports. I did however take the time to describe it to you so you would test it yourself.
This one I was totally ignorant about. I didn't even know that feature was a thing. I never noticed before today and apparently you are the first person to have used it. I'm going to have to see if I can turn it off. I don't think I can.

Getting shouted at? Weird flex but okay. I had monotone in my head when writing it, just like everything in this thread so far. Next time I'll send a video link.

Part of benefiting from open-source systems is being a good citizen and helping to improve it. You should have taken the time to report it. I will do your work for you.
Grant Rostig Friendica (AP)
I didn't know it was a bug until you commented, it still could be a configuration error. Yes open source is good.
It doesn't seem to be a configuration error. It does seem like when it was initially coded, it assumed too much about how eMail would be transported on a generalized system. I am behind a DHCP connection so have to use a service like MailGun to get my outbound eMail to work. Someday (maybe) I'll be able to afford a static IP.

As I posted the report (https://github.com/friendica/friendica/issues/7690), I realized that the link might only be visible in one of the themes, though it's directly available on any Friendica site because it's part of the core. I found no admin interface settings to tweak its content or turn it off.
Grant Rostig Friendica (AP)
Okay, very interesting.


Capitalism. Time for a reset — This is the new agenda

I'm a #Skeptic because of my experiences in life. I'm an #Optimist about the nature of our collective #humanity being more #good than #bad. I'm a #Pessimist about the people in power being far more likely to be #sociopathic than the population at large. This new thing the Financial Times is doing, #TheNewAgenda, well, it seems genuine.

They are mumbling or at least saying quietly, "hey #Capitalism, you're we're doing it wrong." They seem to be reporting with a #perspective of #introspect and #reckoning of overdue #liability #accounts of industrial capitalism. Typically, big-capitalism doesn't do introspect, it only does short term plans to beat their competitors to death.

I know it's very easy to put on a false front and get people to think you're doing something good when the #hidden #agenda, the true goal, is bad for most people. I'm going to presume innocence on the #FT here until proven otherwise. The FT was really good before this new "New-Thing" so I'm optimistic about it.

Why would Iran attack Saudi Aramco's oil facilities?

The FT News podcast called News In Focus just recently reviewed that recent question of, "did #Iran do the damage to the #Saudi #oil production facility?" The FT talks about claims of where the weapons were launched from and who built them as well as other nations having a consensus building and decaying over who to blame.

I'm personally not convinced yet by any claims of who did it, but if the #USA (my home country) wants to claim that #Iranian looking #weapons means Iran did it, I'm gonna have to call bullshit and fuck-you. We never find the time to blame ourselves for all the #death and #carnage that our weapons do in the hands of others! I'm leaving Iran off the hook on this one so far.

Congressional Dish Podcast Rocks!

I just love this Jennifer Briney #Podcaster! From the April-2013 CD024: Let’s Gut the STOCK Act episode where she first—in a non-partisan way—"gives the game away" of how unethical our "elected" officials can be, to the latest show where she reveals where she's coming from personally and ethically. She turns Congressional Gruel into palatable delicacies for the hungry masses. A true #Journalist.

"I Love America" Facebook page (pushing pro-Trump propaganda) is run by Ukrainians

The Trumped-up Economy and the coming world of hurt...

Back in August, #TheSignal #Podcast did an episode called How to start a currency war,

and it gave us a very foreboding message about one of the very real possibilities we are facing worldwide if my countries #Asshole in the #WhiteHouse continues making decisions to profit his ego and his massively wealthy donors bottom-lines.


Just this week, that same podcast aired another show along the same lines as the one linked above called, What happens in a recession.

The show paints a grim picture for the future, but it's not a dystopian fantasy, it's a likely outcome.


Because I tend to be a contrarian, I looked for a silver lining. This type of an economic downturn, while it's helping the rich, hurting the middle-class, and not affecting the poor, it will be helping the fight against #ClimateChange. We will be doing less of everything that releases carbons into the atmosphere, and less of everything that degrades the earth and sea.

Olga Lautman on the Russian Mafia

This one is so new that the #Podcast isn't even available on the Gaslit Nation website yet. I used the Lybsyn podcast manager to get the content here.

Olga "knows where the bodies are buried" when it comes to #NYC #Mobsters. She's in the know with the #Jewish and #Russian #Mob's and she's naming names, and putting string from one person to another.

The #RudyGiuliani thing was amazing. #Giuliani as the NY State Prosecutor got famous for going after Organized Crime, but now I see that was just him using public funds to clear out the #Italians so that the #Russians he was connected to could have it easier.

It’s an Economist’s World

This is soooo #Great!
The #Economist’s #Evolutionary path into the forefront of #Government is explored and scrutinized in a delightful way in this episode. As a staunch hater of #Friedman and his almost #Nefarious contributions to #Economic thought, I'm quite pleased to hear a new wave of thinkers are coming to the fore. Binyamin Appelbaum and his book,
"The Economists' Hour | False Prophets, Free Markets, and the Fracture of Society",
might get me to spend money on a paper book again! It's like Binyamin finally said, "the King has no clothes." Applebaum isn't pulling punches with his content and he's not sparing any former lead politicians from blame.


The interview starts at about 5:34

The page that audio comes from is https://slate.com/podcasts/the-gist/2019/09/new-york-times-binyamin-appelbaum-new-book-the-economists-hour
The attached article below is Applebaum's column in the NYT.

The New York Times: Opinion | Blame Economists for the Mess We’re In (By BINYAMIN APPELBAUM)



In the event that I have readers unfamiliar with the school of Economics, don't shy away. All people have the ability to contribute to this school of thought. In general, all economists study the motivation people have for selecting goods and services with their limited resources. All you need to participate is some personal insight and some curiosity in others rationale for their decisions.

Microeconomics focuses on those atomic level decisions like if you pick whole milk over 2% or a red-colored package over a green-colored package.

Macroeconomics focuses on what happens when all of us make decisions simultaneously, and how policy and/or regulatory actions can be enacted to avoid large scale societal problems.

Merriam-Webster's twitter account throws shade at US POTUS


This tweet is pretty funny. It's following #Trump's #Sharpie-gate. #FunFact altering #NOAA weather information is a federal crime.

The link to the tweet is M-W restoring #funny & archaic words to identify people in unflattering ways. #Mumpsimus was highlighted in the tweet (and it prompted #Trumpsimus), but that tweet links to a great list of fun words.
