This is really quite something... #Antarctic sea ice extent is back to a record low for the current date. This is actually below 2016, which was previously a massive outlier in November and December.

Can we subject HR professionals to Performance Evaluation Process? Perhaps employees can do this.

@fkamiah17 Facism has arrived! We were dismissed as scaremongers when we pointed to the signs the Tories were moving in this direction. The law is now whatever the UK Parliament says it is

This works for me, because I go through flurries and dips in posting and finally no longer have to feel that I'm using the platform wrong.

Some kind of media reports are certainly a problem, but the classification if someone is a trafficker is also done by politicians, governments and courts, and this is the real issue.


But isreal has the right to defend itself, this rhetoric will carry on until enough people say enough is enough without the fear of being called antisemitic. Until then the suffering will continue.


I will have a look later, but we are moving very fast with this.
