But what about thanks _taking,_ huh???? Did you ever think of that? That’s what I thought.

AstraZeneca will now start charging for its covid-19 vaccine, abandoning the non-profit model it adopted at the start of the pandemic. The jab was 97% publicly funded.

AstraZeneca said it would keep the non-profit model until the pandemic was over. It is not over.

When anyone would the role of the Gates Foundation in ensuring its IP wasn’t freely shared, this was a detail people pointed to to say it was okay. Clearly it wasn’t.

If I was gonna commission art of a roleplaying character in a cyberpunk campaign, who would you send me to? Looking for recommendations and not really sure what style I have in mind yet other than "full body" or "waist up".

Today over lunch I finished watching the fourth (and final?) season of Dear White People. Really impressed. The middle seasons had some stuff that seemed kinda... wanderey? But weren't bad. This last one felt pretty tight all the way through and I was really pleased what they did with all the character arcs. Yeah.

yearly reminder as they are deploying their Santas now to not give a fucking cent to the Salvation Army ✌️ they are violently queerphobic, racist, and other pretty nasty things. your money always does better going right into the pockets of vulnerable folk, not thru a charity.

And that that suddenly stopped? No one knew why.
Most didn't even know that this happened. Until this case was exposed: inews.co.uk/news/long-reads/se

I’m looking for perspectives on this. Not really interested in white dudes telling me I should play whatever character I want. I’m not gonna pretend I can do AAVE or something any kind of justice. And, like, yes it’s just for my table of 5 (white) people, but still.

I’m not sure I can clearly articulate why this feels important while I’m 100% fine doing a bad Russian or Irish accent or Keanu Reeves impersonation at the table. Tl;dr is whiteness, though.
