If memory serves, Thunderfoot was excoriated for using privileged forum access after being banned. That was one of his "unconscionable" sins against the League of Just Righteousness. Watson simply makes fun of and dismisses a similar incident in her own past. This might have been one of the earliest data points in "It's OK if we do it." Not that any of them are bright enough to realize it.
The same friend banned who she doesn’t speak to anymore after he agreed on Facebook her coffee hysteria was overblown.
The same forum that she didn’t speak out about the real name rule as a moderator, while breaking the rules herself.
The pictures of the back end of the still existing JREF forum are still on her Flickr account.
Maybe she thinks stealing art like Rage Dawkins for merchandise is also forgivable if you’re laughing about it?

Very early doors but outside London Farage's Brexit party are well ahead in England & Wales and polling a decent second in Scotland. Lib/dems and greens doing well in the shires and uni cities.

Some parts of northern England Brexit Party are apparently polling 40 and 50% .. But as I say very early doors. Tommy Robinson hasn't been elected, he was never going to be really. (source LBC)

What do you call in actual figures "not as well as polls indicated" for Brexit Party?
The comparison is surely with Farage/UKIP from 2015 (27.5% and 24 seats) with approx 33% (recent polling) for Brexit party 2019

I would trust Robinson to represent my politics on what I see as the most important political issues facing Europe than most other candidates. The rough edges should be irrelevant. IMO the only use for an MEP is to expose the Supreme Soviet's democratic facade and create as much of a stink as possible.

My limited understanding is that GCR effects on cloud formation are accepted as plausible but that their precise magnitude is uncertain. What is known from GCR measurements, solar activity and possibly other established facts is that the warming we have been seeing over the last fifty years or so is definitely not due to GCR. My understanding is that Shaviv has claimed that GCR has been the predominant driver up 'til now. He seems to have found a strong correlation between temp and cyclical 140 million year cosmic ray variation. Unfortunately the cosmic ray cycle doesn't exist anymore in the updated understanding of astrophysics. He associates with the usual obstructionist thunk tanks which, although not damning in itself, certainly raises red flags.

There's solid evidence that changing cosmic ray flux from the sun is responsible for some of the observed temperature increase over the last 40 years, there's no support for it being the primary driver, and at best it shares responsibility with anthropogenic CO2.
And this solid evidence is? From what I've read cosmic radiation follows the solar cycle.
The evidence for the link between solar activity, cosmic rays, clouds, and temperature is primarily due to the published work of Nir Shaviv, Henrik Svensmark, Jan Veizer and others. Cosmic radiation incidence on earth does roughly follow the solar cycle, with times of greater solar activity corresponding to more solar wind, fewer cosmic rays and low clouds, and hence greater temperature. The key link between this and more recent temperature changes lies in the fact that sunspot number (a good proxy for solar activity) and beryllium-10 levels in ice cores (a good proxy for cosmic rays) show a marked increase in solar activity and decrease in cosmic rays through the 20th century over the previous 5 centuries. Shaviv has also quantified the amplification of solar forcing due to this cosmic ray-cloud formation effect to be 6-7 times the forcing due to solar irradiance alone, which is why many of the modelling based efforts to dismiss the importance of solar dynamics on climate are wrong.
My spidey sense starts tingling as soon as I see a post on complex system dynamics using correlation as the key analytic tool. Further googling suggests that my tingles were justified.
The effect of cosmic rays on climate is through seeding of clouds by nucleation of particles. There are so many other sources of cloud seeding particles that the potential effect of ionisation by cosmic rays is probably negligible. Shaviv's recreation of the historical cosmic radiation record makes a lot of leaps, so not much stock can be put in that. Looks very much like just another one of those bits of research spread by think tanks and bloggers but justifiably regarded as dubious by sober scientists.
I've worked with Shaviv in the past. He's sloppy -- he shoots for results that challenge the "standard narrative", ignoring possibly important effects that might argue against his claims. I don't think he's a stooge for climate denialists, more someone who prioritizes his own glory over the truth.

I think it is simpler than that. She used to have the unexamined belief that most US conservatives were racists, but in the fallout from the socialautopsy affair, it was the conservatives who treated her decently and explained why it was a bad, if well-intentioned idea, and the progressives who treated her like an uppity negress. The progressives would never use those words, but I have no doubt that that was how she felt she was treated. Most American conservatives want black friends pretty badly, and I think discovering this was a surprise to her and that this surprise was more of a factor than any mercenary motives. She seems to be fairly close to average in intelligence, if she were a schemer she would be more obvious.

Some while back I recommended Linux Mint as a good distro for beginners. Today I had occasion to convert an older MacBook Air to Linux and was amazed at how easy it has become. In the course of a morning I have installed Mint 19.1, set up wi-fi, added all my 5 printers, got all my bookmarks and extensions into Firefox and all 3 of my e-mail accounts into Thunderbird, updated everything and set up a backup schedule. Even managed to import uBlock Origin's 'My Filters' from my Mac. (I don't have a way that I can think of to get 1Password working though as I sync it through iCloud (and don't want to go back to Dropbox, even if there were a 1Password client for Linux that wasn't a subscription to Agilebits own servers.) I was a GP for goodness' sake, not an IT tech. Also - number of times I had to use a command line in Terminal: 0. Things have changed. And maybe I miss some of the sense of achievement I had when installing LinuxPPC or YellowDog onto old PPC Macs. But never mind that, I have full functionality, an OS that starts up in seconds and runs really fast, plus all the fun that comes from anyone in a public place looking over your shoulder and asking what your computer is?
If you're [generic 'you' here forward] not gaming or locked into a corporate environment I don't know why you're putting up with Win10. I have loads of certifications from MS, up to and including Win7, so I've never been one to slag on them just because it's trendy (hell, they paid my bills for a bit). But comparing Win10 to a Mint distro in a home environment I see literally zero reasons to keep Win10 going other than gaming. Don't want to evangelize, but god damned if Mint doesn't just purr along without tending. Anyway, JMO, YMMV.
My second experience of Linux: A few years back I put Mint on an old ex Win XP Samsung netbook in order to use the cam for surveillance /skype (long story)
Install was fine and there were enough available drivers for the netbook - seemed to initially work OK but after a few hours wi fi (which I needed always on) kept dropping and had to be manually restarted - could not find any obvious reason - Linux is fine when it works but if you hit a problem and the searched forums/google can't get you a solution you are on your own - and I don't want to spend my life trying command lines that might or might not work.

I did think that with the rise of the smart phone and android especially , that everyday users who might have stuck with Windows or Apple all their lives are more open to using an alternative (free) OS , but Android only has to do so much - unlike a full desktop windows alternative. i am not and never will be a gamer but I have programs that will pretty much only run on Windows reliably . Don't mention dual booting etc etc
Also these days you can run Win 10 without activation or get a working key for a few quid on ebay so the cost of the OS isnt really a factor like it used to be . There is certainly an argument for using a lightweight alternate OS as Windows get more bloated . (apparently lightweight official Windows 10 Lite is coming) There's also ReactOS
https://reactos.org/
though I haven't tried it.
For the netbook project at the time, I ended up installing Win 10 non-activated- not expecting the old hardware to be able to handle it and it actually ran a bit sluggishly of course but enough to use for what I required it for at the time.

This video isn't spectacular fireworks. But "cameras inside every mosque, if it's good enough for Saudi Arabia-- it's good-enough for us" is a strange thing for a Classical Liberal to propose. I'm only 12 minutes in, but I'm sure there's plenty-more weird shit he'll say next...

I mean, you don't think that's actually a real proposal, do you?

There were a few barbed quips from Ralph re Benjamin's stillborn child.

Jim holding himself to a higher standard did not participate - though he did read out other peoples superchats on the subject in a later stream.
Yeah, Jim is my nihilist, reality TV guilty pleasure. Sometimes I like hearing about people shoving bike pumps up their arse.
Obviously, I (at least somewhat) agree - or I wouldn't be familiar enough with the subject to make a coherent point.

But for however long - it did give me pause...(cf Larry Talbot)...

Alright, chaps, I never meant to start the new Stihl vs. Husqvarna thread.

Some while back I recommended Linux Mint as a good distro for beginners. Today I had occasion to convert an older MacBook Air to Linux and was amazed at how easy it has become. In the course of a morning I have installed Mint 19.1, set up wi-fi, added all my 5 printers, got all my bookmarks and extensions into Firefox and all 3 of my e-mail accounts into Thunderbird, updated everything and set up a backup schedule. Even managed to import uBlock Origin's 'My Filters' from my Mac. (I don't have a way that I can think of to get 1Password working though as I sync it through iCloud (and don't want to go back to Dropbox, even if there were a 1Password client for Linux that wasn't a subscription to Agilebits own servers.) I was a GP for goodness' sake, not an IT tech. Also - number of times I had to use a command line in Terminal: 0. Things have changed. And maybe I miss some of the sense of achievement I had when installing LinuxPPC or YellowDog onto old PPC Macs. But never mind that, I have full functionality, an OS that starts up in seconds and runs really fast, plus all the fun that comes from anyone in a public place looking over your shoulder and asking what your computer is?
Yellow Dog! I once installed that on one of my "lost" week-ends. Many years ago. I eventually settled on Dead Rat and SUSE distros (my home network at the time was 11 boxes running various diverse OS including an ancient SPARC).

Anyway, I migrated off of Mint around a 18 months ago to Kubuntu. I was having ongoing issues with the laptop graphics card that got worse over time and after two years of work-arounds I threw in the towel.

The default UI is now for Ubuntu is back to Gnome.

But I was not happy with the new Gnome(V3) preferring the previous version and I was unwilling to wrestle with it again hence I went back to KDE (which I had not used in years).


Basically, I no longer get my jollies from delving into issues. While I can fix it, what I want is for stuff to work without me having to didddle with it.

(I have turned into one of those grumpy old men ... I also look back at the "good old days" with a jaundiced view too).

If you're [generic 'you' here forward] not gaming or locked into a corporate environment I don't know why you're putting up with Win10. I have loads of certifications from MS, up to and including Win7, so I've never been one to slag on them just because it's trendy (hell, they paid my bills for a bit). But comparing Win10 to a Mint distro in a home environment I see literally zero reasons to keep Win10 going other than gaming. Don't want to evangelize, but god damned if Mint doesn't just purr along without tending. Anyway, JMO, YMMV.
