Two decades of Alzheimer's research may be based on deliberate fraud that has cost millions of lives: dailykos.com/stories/2022/7/22

I remember seeing an item on the TV not long ago where the presenter was puzzling over why drugs that successfully targeted amyloid plaques did not seem to have any effect slowing or stopping the development of Alzheimer's. I guess now we know 😕

Please help me get stable while I am in a bit of a financial bind

"As I work to complete my program, I realize I cannot work any kind of “regular” job. Since I am trained as and enjoy working as a photographer, I intend to freelance to sustain myself as I study. These last couple of months have been particularly difficult as I’ve tried to maintain."

So I am curious to hear from practitioners of an creideamh sí - what is your connection to the word "fae"? Is it sacred to you? If so, why?

I know you're all gonna have Opinions, but please, if you are not a practitioner of an creideamh sí, don't @ me! Save my brainpower. :D

An update on the "are fae/faer pronouns offensive?" topic!

For the first time in several very large surveys, someone has actually named the faith fae/faer pronouns are offensive to: "an creideamh sí".

The ninth annual international Gender Census 2022 is now open until 13th August 2022!

It's for anyone whose gender (or lack thereof) isn't described by the M/F binary. It's short and easy, and results are useful in academia, business and self-advocacy.

It’s amusing to me that “lewd” and “rude” rhyme. And to say, “lewd!” in the same tone that people sneer, “rude!” at people.

Hello! My books have all been re-released with my correct name in ebook and paperback!

Fediblock, insults including suicide and slurs 

#fediblock collapsitarian dot io, I'll let one of their admins speak for themselves. Lots more to be found on their profile.

about aave 

@ljwrites Like, Once you learn that it's aave you can just practce to use it less or find other words.

Even if you don't successfully do it all the time, you're at least trying.

I've just learnt that A LOT (if not all) new popular terms are probably AAVE, and thuis when I come across new cool lingo, I look it up to find out if it's AAVE or not.

IT's very simple.

And this isn't about being a Bad Person if you used "based" or "woke." It's not about a word list, it's not about your precious individual morality at all, shockingly! It's about how these words come into our vocabulary through the social machinery of antiblackness designed to caricature Black people and push them deeper into the margins, ransacking their culture for our own gain. The point is that if you actually CARED those words would become radioactive to you, because you would share the flinch, would feel the sting.

The point is fellow feeling. The point is listening to Black people and relating to them as human beings.
