How would you explain your basic #life #philosophy?


Have fun but don't harm anybody. Anybody is including #nature, #earth, #environment, plants, animals, #climate and you.

Yeah. Sometimes I feel also overwhelmed with the admin life work. I like the term.

The Slackification of the American Home


Stretched for time, some households are starting to operate more like businesses.

I don't think it's something new. It's the same old offline calendars and to-do list as concept. It's now just online.

For The New G-Plus Refugees Coming To Pluspora Let’s Do The Aspects Again :


Folks who are not on Pluspora, feel free to skip this post, this is really just intended for the refugees on our Pod and not meant to klutter up your reading. Folks who are already being shared with by me are in my Aspects don't need to read this again for the most part (if you haven't seen it but I am sharing with you then please do skim along).

This is probably going to be the last public post of the Aspects. I will do an abbreviated one in the future only for folks in my Aspects already but I will be reducing my public posting due to hate mongers on other pods that I have zero interest in.

Things are fading out over on G-Plus. I've been checking back daily and watching as folks pack up, say farewells and lock up the hold place. I've also been here on Pluspora for months now. If you know me or have heard about this place from me then welcome aboard. There are lots of fellow refugees and good people here.

If you have seen and/or interacted with any of my posts, article links etc here on pluspora then you might want to know that just as on G+ I actually post a LOT more than what you see in my public posts. If we are not sharing with each other and you are not in my aspects, you only see 10% of what I post, discuss and get involved in.

I put a lot of what I write behind Aspects, which for me act as private posts. These let me avoid flooding the stream and let folks see posts on specific subjects that they are interested in.

Warning, I am verbose, opinionated and eclectic in my interests.

It also means that I can keep things mostly troll, spam and neo-nazi free. AND that if you see replies/comments from someone in my aspected posts you know that they are also interested in that subject and might be a neat person for you to share with as well on that subject. And probably a generally decent person to know.

Building up private aspect sharing this way allows an emulation of some of the controls that many of us were used to on g+ and other platforms. There is a problem from specific problem pods (what some folks here call the #RudePods or #NaziPods or #TrollPods) on the Diaspora Network. Mostly these are pods filled with MAGA types who have been tossed out of the civilized pods (though some keep multiple sock puppet accounts like they do on Youtube, Twitter etc). Their numbers are few and small and they hate Pluspora for its founder's insistence of maintaining civilized and polite discussion and not allowing members who use anonymous posting to commit what is considered in some states of the USA as hate crimes or libel. Oh and they hate the fact that we are 11,800+ Strong and outnumber them considerably. Unlike Twitter or Facebook they are a minority here.

So, here’s my List of aspects. If you are sharing with me, and not a troll, Anti-LGBT, or rampant neo-nazi/alt-right/fascist kind of person you might want to considering connecting up this way (reply if you are interested in specific aspects). My aspects lists are also a way to find others on pluspora or the diaspora who are not fundamentally rude, crude, blatantly evil or purposely cruel. I don't get along with those types and won't share with them when they are encountered. I am also actively trying to connect up folks with matching interests to develop their own aspect collections with private sharing to shut out those sort sort folks.

One small thing… if all you post is in a non-english language in your own posts then please don’t share with me. I am monolingual for the most part and find that generally translations don’t work here on diaspora. I wish neither of these things were true, but I'm too old to learn more languages.

So, reply and let me know where your interests are :

#Artists (visual, audio, and sometimes performance; includes photography)
#Biography (that is biographic pieces on other people, not mine)
#Cambridge (That would be Cambridge Massachusetts USA)
#CurrentEvents (includes politics, world events, news)
#FictionBooks (I read things that are not in SF/Fantasy)
#FilmAndTv (may include spoilers, criticism, reviews, theory etc.) #Film #TV
#Food (cooking, eating out experiences, recipes, etc.) #Recipies #Cooking
#Gamers (tabletop, rpgs, role-playing, computer, online, design projects, tools & techniques)
#History (includes archaeology etc)
#Humor (comedians, funny life things, memes)
#Life (My personal life; I’m very careful as to who can read these as I do one daily)
#Pagan (neo-pagan etc. Things not in mainstream religion, including mythology)
#Science (includes space, medicine, environment, physics etc.)
#SFAndFantasy (books and other fantastic literature media)
#Technology (includes computers, the internet, AI, robots, etc.)
#Webcomics (not just the funny ones)
#Writers (Includes How to, format, plotting, characterization, world building, criticism/reviews, spoilers, tools)
#Zibaldone (language, culture, mathematics, strange things, philosophy)

There are days where I will only read/post based on my aspects, to avoid the stream firehose, so being in my aspects is more likely to get my involvement in things that you post…

When posting and using hashtags, always Capitalize the first letter, this is so folks with visual impairment who use screen readers can use search aspects effectively on them

Resharing links of articles from elsewhere on the web that I have posted about is fine, if you want to do so in your circles or even in public. Do not do this with my own commentary or discussions of them or anything I have marked with the hashtag #myownwork please, marked that way consider them to be under copyright protection at this time as works in progress.

Note that Videos on Youtube that I link to in my posts can be accessed long after the posts by going to the appropriate Aspect Play List on my channel:

Here's an inspiring example

Rob Greenfield built his tiny house using 99% recycled/reclaimed materials. And in building his tiny house, he only created about 30 pounds worth of waste. It gets better, too. He has a wonderful outdoor kitchen, bathroom, garden, composting system, rainwater collection system, and he’s even found a way to create energy from food scraps. He explains it all below.
#Orlando #Florida #tiny #house #recycle #building #simple #life

hat tip to @Hank G
He built a tiny house for $1.5k and grows his own food too

How To Get #Vaccinated Without Your #Parent's Permission


A #vaccination can save your #life. Simple as. But a number of young #people are being denied the opportunity of being immunized because of their parent’s hostility towards vaccinations. While the " #anti- vax movement" remains totally discredited by #science, there has been a hugely damaging resurgence of these ideas in the age of #socialmedia.

Just recently, a #Twitter thread highlighted how #teens in the US are now searching for legal advice on #Reddit because they want to be #immunized against #deadly diseases, but their parents won't provide them with their consent.

Like any #medical treatment, receiving a #vaccine should only be undertaken if the #patient has a full understanding of the #procedure. Many #teenagers around the #world feel like they are #mature and informed enough to make this decision but are not legally considered an #adult yet, so the issue of #consent to medical procedures becomes tricky.

If you are under the age of 18 in the #US, #UK, #Canada, or #Australia (our four largest viewership areas), but you're unable to receive your parent or guardian's consent for a vaccination, here’s everything you need to know.
