    1. Ein neuer Bericht von Bloomberg kommt zu dem Ergebnis, dass die Kosten für das Erreichen von der Zero 2050 deutlich höher sind als bisher angenommen. Wenn man nicht nur heute schon wettbewerbsfähige Technologien verwendet, müssen 19% zusätzlich investiert werden. Insgesamt würde die erforderliche Infrastruktur 215 Billionen Dollar Investitionen erfordern. Verlässt man sich auf wettbewerbsfähige Energien, wird die globale Durchschnittstemperatur sich auf etwa 2,6 Grad erhöhen, wobei auch dieses Szenario mehr Anstrengung erfordert, als von den Staaten jetzt geplant ist. https://www.bloomberg.com/news/articles/2024-05-21/key-takeaways-from-bloombergnef-s-new-energy-outlook?srnd=green

    1. While some online instructors feel theyare on call 24/7, this study corroboratesthe literature that the majority of distancelearners do not have the expectation ofan immediate response.

      Students do not expect teachers to be "on call 24/ 7"

    2. contend that if instructors gave studentsa time frame for responses, there would befewer repeat emails.Thus, there appears tobe strong consensus among both researchersand practitioners that promptly responding toemail communication in the distance learningenvironment is essential.

      response time

    3. emails were helpful and prompt, it increasedstudents’ perceptions of positive relationshipswith their instructors, which led to positiveteaching evaluations at the end of the course.Leidman and Piwinsky (2009)

      research on timing of feedback

    4. Whiteand Weight (1999) also contend that wheninstructors respond within 24 hours this showsstudents the instructor is involved in the class

      research on how 24 period of response shows faculty involvement

    5. results of the survey indicated that the vast majority of the students (91%) consider 24 hoursan acceptably responsive return rate time, and the same majority (91%) reported they consider24 hours an acceptably responsive time for them to return emails they receive from their onlineinstructors

      24 hours acceptable response time for 91%

    1. robust theme in the reasons given for preferringface-to-face delivery formats is the perceived lack of interactionwith an instructor in online courses.This was evident in statementsthat suggested that students believe they would have to “teachthemselves”, or that they would prefer a course taught by a “hu-man” or a “real teacher”.

      need for instructor interaction

    1. Eine neue, grundlegende Studie zu Klima-Reparationen ergibt, dass die größten Fosssilkonzerne jählich mindestens 209 Milliarden Dollar als Reparationen an von ihnen besonders geschädigte Communities zahlen müssen. Dabei sind Schäden wie der Verlust von Menschenleben und Zerstörung der Biodiversität nicht einberechnet. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/may/19/fossil-fuel-firms-owe-climate-reparations-of-209bn-a-year-says-study

    1. This entire process took a few days of my time, spread over a few weeks. That's a lot of work.

      How can you put in that much amount of effort and time as a student, where you have schooldays and homework to deal with.

      But there are benefits. Suppose a student HAS to study for exams, but doesn't want to spend a lot of time studying (since exams depend on rote learning and retrieval), he/she can use Anki. The time spent should be worth it. There may be some opportunity costs though, like doing some other social activity or creative work rather than putting questions into Anki. This requires motivation, dedication and perhaps sense of progress.

    1. Adults do not perceive accessibility of reading materials in appropriate languages as a primary barrier to reading with children. Only 5% of adults who do not read with children said it wasbecause they did not have materials in the right languages (most said it was a lack of time). On the other hand, 79% of adults also report that they would read more with children if theycould access more materials in their preferred languages. This suggests that adults who are strongly motivated to read with children will do so, irrespective of materials access, but thatincreasing accessibility to reading materials in the right languages may increase the quality and amount of reading.71Figure 49

    1. he estimated human contribution to global warming of 0.23C for the past decade (2013 to 2022), as published in Earth System Science Data by Prof Piers Forster and colleagues, is based on a climate model emulator that is driven by an updated estimate of factors including the influence of greenhouse gases and aerosols on the Earth’s climate in recent years
    1. Afghanistan ist zur Zeit von Starkregen und Flutwellen betroffen und leidet zugleich unter Hitzewellen. Die Überflutungen sind das Ergebnis der Ausdehnung der Monsungebiete nach Nordwesten. Die Temperaturen haben in Afghanistan seit 1950 um 1,8 Grad zugenommen. Unter anderem drei aufeinanderfolgende Dürren haben den Grundwasserspiegel in Afghanistan in fünf Jahren um 11 m gesenkt. Umfassender Bericht der taz über das von der globalen Erhitzung besonders betroffene Land.

    1. In Norditalien setzt sich die Dürre-Situation des vergangenen Jahres fort, weil - wie in Frankreich - im Winter lange kein Regen gefallen ist. Der Wasserstand des Po ist extrem niedrig. Maßnahmen zur Kontrolle des Wasserverbrauchs sind unter der Rechtsregierung noch schwieriger durchzusetzen als in der Regierungszeit Draghis.

    1. Wassermangel gefährdet inzwischen den Schiffsverkehr durch den Panamakanal und damit die internationale Versorgung mit Agrarprodukten, aber auch mit Flüssiggas. Die Trockenheit ist ein Ergebnis veränderter Niederschlagsmuster, die in diesem Jahr durch das El Niño-Phänomen verstärkt werden.

    4. Global greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions set a new record in 2023
    5. Researchers found that by 2100, under current levels of GHG emissions, 3 of 4 people in the world will be exposed to deadly heat conditions every year, with a higher occurrence of these conditions in intertropical areas
    6. An estimated 67,340 km2 of global forest were lost in 2021 alone, unleashing 3.8 Gt of GHG emissions, roughly 10% of the global average
    7. day, 1 in 3 people are exposed to deadly heat stress. This number is projected to increase up to 75% by the end of the century
    8. United Nations estimates that 1.84 billion people worldwide, or nearly a quarter of humanity, were living under drought in 2022 and 2023, the vast majority in low- and middle-income countries (83).

    1. Die Konzentration der drei wichtigsten Treibhausgase CO<sub>2</sub>, Methan und NO<sub>2</sub> hat 2023 neue Rekordwerte erreicht. Die Daten der amerikanischen NOAA zeigen, dass sich der Anstieg im Durchschnitt der letzten Jahre nicht verlangsamt hat, auch wenn er in manchen Vorjahren noch steiler verlief. Die CO<sub>2</sub>-Konzentation liegt 50% höher als in der vorindustriellen Zeit und entspricht der vor 4 Millionen Jahren. Die Atmosphäre enthält 160% mehr Methan als vor der Industrialisierung. Außer dem Verbrennen von Kohle, Öl und Gas ist die industrielle Landwirtschaft Hauptursache der Treibhausgas-Konzentration. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2024/apr/06/record-highs-heat-trapping-gases-climate-crisis

    1. The neglect of the book is however not altogether advanta- 78geous.

      There is a range of reading lengths and levels of argumentation which can be found in these various ranges.

      Some will complain about the death of books or the rise of articles or the rise of social media and the attention economy. Where is balance to be found.

      Kaiser speaks to these issues in ¶75-79. One must wonder what Kaiser would have thought about the bite-sized nature of social media and it's distracting nature?

    1. The standard difference operator (-) returns day-based results for both date, timestamp and timestamp with time zone (the former returns days as int, the latter two return day-based intervals): From the day-based intervals you can extract days with the extract() function: select current_date - '2017-01-01', extract(day from now()::timestamp - '2017-01-01 00:00:00'), extract(day from now() - '2017-01-01 00:00:00Z');

      summary - Jose's article introduces an important new framing that can help give deep insights into the current poly-meta-perma-crisis that civilization is moving through. - This article synthesizes a diverse source of salient knowledge in the social sciences to shape a futures perspective that contextualizes modernity in deep time. - The deep time perspective helps us to remove the temporal blinders we may have on that may give us a false sense of permanence of social constructions that have been dominant in our lives.

    1. Screen Time: Excessive screen time can have negative consequences on a child’s physical and mental well-being. It’s crucial to set reasonable limits on the amount of time a child spends with apps and ensure a healthy balance with other activities.

      This just justifies what I initially thought, it should be timed, there needs to be time limits on my app.

    1. Die weltwetterorganisation WMO fast in ihrem Bericht über 2023 die Daten verschiedener Services zusammen und kommt zu dramatischen Aussagen über die Entwicklung der Temperatur auf der Erdoberfläche insbesondere insgesamt und besonders an der Oberfläche der Meere. Gleichzeitig ergibt eine Studie der BU Wien dass die Prognosen vieler, darunter großer starken über die Entwicklung der Emissionen deutlich zu optimistisch sind. https://www.derstandard.de/story/3000000212370/weltwetterorganisation-zeichnet-duesteres-bild-vom-klima-des-letzten-jahres

    1. Noguchi Yukio 野口悠紀雄 argues that for the individual researcher, classification is an endless and fruitless task (1993, 1995, 1999, 2000), and proposes that library-type classification by subject be discarded in favor of chronological ordering (that is, ordering on the basis of what document has last been used). His method basically involves putting all material into A4 envelopes and placing the most recently used envelope at the end of the row.
    1. This practice offers a sense of control over one's time and allows for personal decision-making. Most importantly, it grants time for reflection before tending to others' demands.

    1. I disagree. What is expressed is an attempt to solve X by making something that should maybe be agnostic of time asynchronous. The problem is related to design: time taints code. You have a choice: either you make the surface area of async code grow and grow or you treat it as impure code and you lift pure synchronous logic in an async context. Without more information on the surrounding algorithm, we don't know if the design decision to make SymbolTable async was the best decision and we can't propose an alternative. This question was handled superficially and carelessly by the community.

      superficially and carelessly?

    1. Ein neuer Bericht der europäischen Kommission sagt aus, dass die EU dreimal so schnell dekarbonisieren muss wie bisher, um das Ziel zu erreichen, die Emissionen bis 2030 um 55% zu reduzieren. Den Zahlen der European Environment Agency zufolge reicht der gegenwärtige Kurs nur für eine Reduzierung um 43%. Ein Haupthindernis sind die enorm hohen fossilen Subventionen. Die Selbstverpflichtungen von EU-Staaten vor der COP28 treffen z.T. verspätet ein, und die vorliegenden sind einem Bericht des Climate Action Network zufolge sehr unzureichend. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/oct/24/eu-must-cut-emissions-three-times-more-quickly-report-says

    1. n contemporary society, the way we consume information has also started to become more liquid. We “stream” data to our computers. Content “flows” across different platforms and adjusts itself to the material container and the angle at which we view it. Information is no longer held in static, material formats, but is made mobile and ephemeral. This shift has had consequences for the graphic designer too. The designer not only has to adapt to this new medium, she is also no longer the only one with the skills to use it. Digitization and the Internet have made it increasingly easy for laypeople to access software and tutorials to make their own designs at little to no cost. With these developments, graphic design as a profession has started to lose its definition and its sense of identity.

      During shmita, the land is left to lie fallow and all agricultural activity, including plowing, planting, pruning and harvesting, is forbidden by halakha (Jewish law).

      The sabbath year (shmita; Hebrew: שמיטה, literally "release"), also called the sabbatical year or shǝvi'it (שביעית‎, literally "seventh"), or "Sabbath of The Land", is the seventh year of the seven-year agricultural cycle mandated by the Torah in the Land of Israel and is observed in Judaism.

    1. Die Extremwetter-Ereignisse dieses Jahres entsprechen den Vorhersagen der Klimawissenschaft. Der Guardian hat dazu zahlreichende Forschende befragt und viele Statements in einem multimedialen Artikel zusammengestellt. Alle Befragten stimmen darin überein, dass die Verbrennung fossiler Brennstoffe sofort beendet werden muss, um eine weitere Verschlimmerung zu stoppen. Festgestellt wird auch, dass die Verwundbarkeit vieler Communities bisher unterschätzt worden ist. https://www.theguardian.com/environment/2023/aug/28/crazy-off-the-charts-records-has-humanity-finally-broken-the-climate

      1. He moved into United State when he was age of five. He first came to United State when he started kindergarten. Seven of them live in the apartment one bedroom and bathroom to share the whole. He learned ABC song and alphabet. He knows the ABC that he forgot the letter is M comes before N.

      2. He went to the library since he was on the recess. He was in the library hiding from the bully. The bully just came in the library doing the slight frame and soft voice in front of the kid where he sit. He left the library, he walked to the middle of the schoolyard started calling him the pansy and fairy. He knows the American flag that he recognize on the microphone against the backdrop.

    1. Die Durchschnittstemperatur im Sommer lag in Deutschland bei 18,6 Grad Celsius. Das ist 2,3 Grad wärmer als zwischen 1961 und 1990 und immer noch ein Grad wärmer als durchschnittlich zwischen 1991 und 2020. Die hohen Regenmengen reichen nicht aus, die Wasserdefizite der vergangenen trockenen Jahre auszugleichen. Der Deutsche Wetterdienst gab die Zahlen bekannt. https://taz.de/Deutscher-Wetterdienst-zieht-Bilanz/!5953407/

    1. Difference between time blocking and timeboxing Time blocking and timeboxing both involve allocating fixed time periods to activities - but, while time blocking includes strictly reserving time for an activity, timeboxing includes limiting the time you spend on it. Time blocking
