@LeowannGlass Le Reubens, si c'est de cela dont il question, est d'origine américaine, je crois. Une photo de la version alsacienne ?

Surtout ne ratez pas ces compliments, excuses et remerciements ô combien mérités du député @pdharreville@twitter.com à l'exécutif #Borne/#Macron et son sens aigu de la démocratie parlementaire.

Oh that's odd. It was working yesterday, but no longer. Seems to have some limitations...

@kokirimuscle Mort is terrific! Are you reading them in the order they were published?

I've recently finished Carpe Jugulum, which might just be the best Witches book I've read thus far.

Dessin de Camille Besse ( instagram.com/bessedessins/ ) paru dans le numéro de décembre de Causette, pour illustrer un article où la docteure en sociologie Marion Flécher présente sa thèse sur les startups.

5/7 Now I could very easily do without most of the attention seeking posts I'm so used to from Twitter. Yet another who-is-the-greatest-philosopher tweet with 5k likes, yet another aristotle-is-a-loser-fight-me tweet with 50 replies, I don't need it.

In the spirit of wanting more irreverent content on this platform, and speaking of predatory journals, today I was invited to contribute to a volume on new applications of aspirin.

This is your regular reminder that the commercial spyware vendor problem is much bigger than just #NSOGroup. Please welcome #Variston.

If you know of other good livestreams, I encourage you to share them in the comments.

Half of all Americans now die in #hospice care.

Easy money & a lack of #regulation # transformed a crusade to provide death with dignity into an industry rife with fraud & exploitation.

The most audacious hospice firms enlist family and friends to act as make-believe clients, lure addicts with the promise of free painkillers, or sign up “phantom patients” by stealing personal information.
