🌞 Good morning! This is GBH bringing you the world from . It's 56F at Logan Airport and visibility is 10 miles.

The first humanitarian supplies delivered from a floating pier built by the US military entered Gaza today.

In Indiana, a judge ruled that are "Mexican style sandwiches," clearing the way for a taqueria to open.

in 2004, the first legal same-sex marriages in the US happened in Massachusetts, the first state to make equal marriage law.

@fulelo I read that, too. Earlier, one of the Slovakian tabloid-type sites appeared to say that sources told them that he would survive. But I used translate. So maybe not.

Incoming! A severe G4 Geomagnetic Storm is expected to arrive around 02:00 UTC Friday night / Saturday morning.

At least 5 Coronal Mass Ejections took place over the past 24 hours, directed towards Earth. These originated from a large and magnetically complex sunspot cluster (NOAA region 3664).

There is potential for disruption of communications, the electric power grid, navigation, radio and satellite operations.

And bright auroras as far south as Alabama!

@fulelo That was an interesting read. I wonder how many more like the Šapošnikovs are out there.

alcinoe,
@alcinoe@mastodon.social avatar

@fulelo There were a couple living a few blocks from me. Nobody had a clue. I am sure that there are others. Between the spies and the propaganda machine, we've let Russia infiltrate our democracies. It's hard to see Slovakia and Hungary go down that ugly path. I'm just hoping that we don't.

Having a nice ? I bet many of you, , are great at deconstructing things. The boss lady aces wallpaper, furniture and house shoes too, as you can see. Last week she tried Deconstructing 's 'Axis of Resistance' (part two) for - you might want to have a listen to see if she is good at it: https://www.bbc.co.uk/programmes/p0htcwzj

@fulelo Finally got a chance to listen uninterrupted. I actually liked the longer format and got quite caught up in the stories. I had no clue that the US was so responsible for Iran-backed interests gaining political and economic power in Iraq.

@fulelo She has great taste in house shoes! Purple!

@alcinoe@mastodon.social avatar

@fulelo Maybe it's because people get interrupted all the time. I often wait until the the middle of the night to listen to pods, because I really lose the thread when I constantly have to stop and restart because of phone calls or my husband wanting to talk. Not everyone can do that.

Difficult day today. Hard to feel faith or hope in the future of our country. They say you get what you give, so I am sending out hugs to everyone else having a hard day today. 🫂

3 good things, despite it all:

  • The ornamental grasses that I cut back and feared I had killed are growing back tall and green

  • Received my collector’s edition Little People set from Mattel today

  • Minor successes with clients at work today

@tiamat271 @3goodthings Sorry about that. These are, indeed, difficult times. Hugs back.

Photographer Ala Kheir was using his camera to document the scars of Sudan’s old wars. Then came the new war. https://open.substack.com/pub/continent/p/sudan-a-fractured-life-in-limbo?r=2d15gt&utm_campaign=post&utm_medium=web

@thecontinent "... nearly half of Sudan’s population needs humanitarian aid as famine looms, yet only 6% of the funding for humanitarian response in the country has been raised." The world's indifference to this tragedy is hard to understand.

@fulelo Thanks so much to you and your colleagues at The Global Jigsaw for covering the tragedy in . It's disturbing how the world has turned it's back to this horrible situation, but now it seems that the wrong actors have not turned their backs, and are adding to the destruction. It's all so terrible.

    @Cyclist @peterdutoit Exactly. I keep the windows open all night, and close them near dawn. I shut the drapes and pull down the shades. My tiny city lot is all trees. I am not cool, but I can survive with no air conditioner.

    alcinoe,
    @alcinoe@mastodon.social avatar

    @peterdutoit I don't know. They are mostly shitty trees of heaven. A few smaller trees, that sprung up. And Magnolias, Rose of Sharons. Plus a large American Elm that somehow survived. We have plenty of water.

    @Cyclist @peterdutoit Well, we never did before, but now the winds have gotten out of control, and those trees are brittle, so I'm not sure we're going to win the war. I am always afraid now. I just hate to kill all those trees.

    What is the proper general term for someone who is bent on imposing their religious beliefs on those who do not share them? Like the Taliban, Iran's Revolutionary Guard, the Spanish Conquistadores, ...

    @fulelo I would never put it that way, bearing with you. I can't believe the insight that you guys have given me. I don't know how you do it. I never wanted news to confirm my viewpoint, I just want the truth. And you are delivering that. Thank you.
