In response to:
"I think I am going to have all my pants convrted to support button-based suspenders!"
Dear Dr. Freemo: I just checked on the health aspects of wearing belts versus suspenders and suspenders a by far more healthy!
Sincerely, Monica Andrews, Editor-in-chief, #FreePeoplesFreePress News
Are suspenders healthier than belts?
The answer is: Definitely! Belts, and tight pants for that matter, act as a tourniquet on your gut, displacing and restricting blood flow to internal organs and causing fat to get stuck in the torso rather than settling in the buttocks and legs.
Indie bookstores can change your life. In 2007, I wandered into NYC's St Marks' Bookstore (RIP) and picked up a book from the recommended table: "How to Cheat at Everything," by Simon Lovell (RIP), and I learned how to spot a scam. It's a skill I use every day, especially when analyzing how corporate America works the US government:

So some scammer on FB just tried to tell me if I invest 1500$ in their system I'll have 15000$ in 4 days. a 10x profit in 4 days investing in their trading platform...
Of course I told them they were an idiot and not just lying but dont know basic math. With those returns if someone invested a single dollar it would take only 45 days for them to be the richest person on the entire planet... Jesus christ how did people get so stupid.
‘They Are Finishing the Trees’: Chinese Companies and Namibian Elites Make Millions Illegally Logging the Last Rosewoods - OCCRP https://www.occrp.org/en/investigations/chinese-companies-and-namibian-elites-make-millions-illegally-logging-the-last-rosewoods
In my 2017 novel WALKAWAY, there's a scene where the protagonists get into a self-driving car owned by a ruthless plutocrat, only to discover that it moves faster than any other vehicle they've ever ridden.
The plute explains that he's done an illegal mod that lets him override the lane-change safety margins and pay fines for it - an illustration of the principle that "a fine is a price."
colonialism related to .io domains
If you’re looking for your next domain, maybe consider not using .io as the TLD. The colonial history and status of the British Indian Ocean Territories is… quite terrible.
The UK colonisers forcibly removed the Chagossians from their homeland to create an empty island for a U.S. military base. They still aren’t allowed to return.
I'm an incoming research professor at Pennsylvania State University. Interested in using population genetics methods to understand evolution in marine species, particularly those in the tropical Indo-Pacific.
Also interested in promoting open, equitable science, especially capacity-building for marine biodiversity assessment in developing countries. Co-founder of the Diversity of the Indo-Pacific Network.
My first picture book is out! It's called Poesy the Monster Slayer and it's an epic tale of bedtime-refusal, toy-hacking and monster-hunting, illustrated by Matt Rockefeller. It's the monster book I dreamt of reading to my own daughter.
In 1995, 9 activists were murdered in Nigeria by the military, for protesting against the impacts of Shell’s oil production.
There were arrests, followed by torture. For example, Baribor Bera, was forced to swallow his teeth after being beaten. This is not a movie. This really happened.
Shell knew and enabled the executions.
No one was ever held responsible.
Man Spends 30 Years Turning Degraded Land into Massive Forest
The incredible story of how degraded gorse-infested farmland has been regenerated back into beautiful New Zealand native forest over the course of 30 years..
Fools & Dreamers: Regenerating a Native Forest is a 30-minute documentary about Hinewai Nature Reserve, on New Zealand’s Banks Peninsula, and its kaitiaki/manager of 30 years, botanist Hugh Wilson. When, in 1987, Hugh let the local community know of his plans to allow the introduced ‘weed’ gorse to grow as a nurse canopy to regenerate farmland into native forest, people were not only skeptical but outright angry – the plan was the sort to be expected only of “fools and dreamers”.
Now considered a hero locally and across the country, Hugh oversees 1500 hectares resplendent in native forest, where birds and other wildlife are abundant and 47 known waterfalls are in permanent flow. He has proven without doubt that nature knows best – and that he is no fool.

What 1O years of brutal & unlawful political persecution has done to a truthful & courageous multi-award journalist!
Is this what freedom & democracy in the West looks like now?
