“A death certificate would say he died of sepsis from a bone infection, but my friend and I have a term for the illness that killed him: end-stage poverty. We needed to coin a phrase because so many of our patients die of the same thing.”

Excellent essay by a US doctor describing how many of her patients suffer (and die) not from their illnesses but from the wildly precarious economics of their lives

XZ Vulnerability: "Original Maintainer burns out, and only the Attacker offers to help ... so Attacker inherits trust built up by the Original Maintainer" (#OpenSource)

And if you are curious about the #xz #compromise, a little update on the #Debian site:

As already written, the archive processing is currently off (nothing new coming to testing/unstable/experimental, no mirror updates pushed out).

Automated build daemons for the affected architectures have been stopped, and only two of them regenerated with a clean #stable environment. They are building for the security archive only, nothing else, right now. That part is safe.

Members of the Release, FTP, Security, Build-Daemon and Sysadmin team are discussing what the next steps are. There are multiple different ways that can be taken, with different drawbacks and amounts of work involved.

The International Court of Justice has been hearing the case brought by the Republic of South Africa against the state of Israel of committing genocide on the people of Gaza. The South African legal team has told the International Court of…

A Guernica Palestina pode estar sendo pior que a Guerra Civil Espanhola, mas, em ambos casos, a imagem retrata a dor dos sobreviventes e o horror da barbárie.

He argued with his brother for days for the biggest pumpkin just to produce this.

I started my day today with an energising shout with my #XR friends who are facing court today for their actions to call out the oil and gas lobby speeding up the era of global boiling we are all now in.

When I shouted “when our planet is under attack, what do we do?”
To which everyone else shouted “stand up, fight back!”

And then we sang “dirty deeds, done dirt cheap”.

Celeste Liddle – ‘Remaining an “undecided Indigenous voter”, therefore, in the public sphere, provided me with some space to explore and amplify the diversity of Indigenous viewpoints, while also focusing on truth-telling — an order of business from the Uluru Statement which I had always felt should have been the first step’
