Yes, BREXIT is really going great. Although, why Laphroaig have outsourced their online order shipments to Germany and have kept it that way (in particular for the UK) after Brexit is beyond me.

How Germany came in from the cold - UnHerd

Any colonial elite like this has to be constantly on guard, and the Teutonic Knights eventually developed into Junker Prussia, that uniquely militarised realm of which Voltaire famously said: “All states have armies but in Prussia, the army has a state”.

Surely she'll now have to report on the fall and break up of the EU and the decline of Germany (isn't she based in Berlin?)? Isn't that what the Mail (and other papers) have been promising us for years now?

Invisible workers: Underpaid, exploited and put at risk on Europe’s farms


Euronews

They toil away for hours on end, under blazing sunshine or drenching rain, to cultivate and harvest the fruits and vegetables we so easily take for granted.

As the coronavirus pandemic swept across Europe, those helping to bring food to our plates suddenly became visible, even hailed as "essential workers". But for the past six decades, the European Union's farming policy has overlooked their labour rights and living conditions.

The EU’s common agricultural policy – which accounts for over a third of the bloc's budget – aims to support farm owners and pumps nearly €60 billion into the sector each year. The working conditions of those employed by these farms, however, are not even mentioned in the subsidies scheme.

"At the moment we have this crazy situation where we actually have better protection for animals than for some of these workers on our farms," said German Green MEP Daniel Freund. (...)

Almost all of my posts are public, just because I want them to be public and thus findable. The search function in Diaspora is hilarious - it finds only users and hashtags.
I cannot even search for my own posts.
It turns out that here at pluspora, search engines are blocked for privacy concerns. See robots.txt:
User-Agent: \* 
Disallow: /

Now the effect is that mostly anything older than 2 days is gone. I find this unacceptable and want to ask the podmins of pluspora to re-think robots.txt.
Am I the only one who wants a searchable pluspora?

The Flying Train (1902) | MoMA FILM VAULT SUMMER CAMP - YouTube

"The Flying Train" depicts a ride on a suspended railway in Germany in 1902. The footage is almost as impressive as the feat of engineering it captures. For many years our curators believed our Mutoscope rolls were slightly shrunken 70mm film, but they were actually shot on Biograph’s proprietary 68mm stock. Formats like Biograph’s 68mm and Fox’s 70mm Grandeur are of particular interest to researchers visiting the Film Study Center because the large image area affords stunning visual clarity and quality, especially compared to the more standard 35mm or 16mm stocks.

Yes, there's stupid in Germany as well. Good to see the UK doesn't have a monopoly on stupid. (although 17k isn't that many. Especially as I think I saw something a few days ago where some of the organisers (or someone sympathising with them) predicted 7-8M attendees. Yeah, right....)

And what Starmer doesn't even mention is that a lot of people you'd never expect (like the Chaos Computer Club, all kind of privacy advocates, various IT experts, all the people who normally wouldn't touch a government app with a barge pole) are all pretty much praising the app, saying it does most things right (within the technical constraints) and recommend to download it
