    1. If everyone did all of the above things, they would have the personal infrastructure in place to enable their lives to become zero-emissions. But the above changes only cover 45% of average American emissions—so what gives? The remaining 55% of emissions come indirectly from the goods, services, and food we buy. The only way we’ll get to a zero-carbon world is for each of those industries to adopt new technology and change their processes to be emissions-free, or be replaced with a zero-emissions alternative. That’s why your first action is voting to make sure that policies and incentives are put in place to accelerate the overall transition.

      The "above things" being:

      1. Vote for elected officials who prioritize smart climate policy; join climate action or political groups to support pro-climat candidates and non-profits.
      2. Use only electric vehicles. Your next car [and this right here is a measure of how very car-dependent Americans as a whole are] needs to be electric. [AND you also need to press your power companies and government for clean electricity; lots of electricity comes from coal!]
      3. Electrify your house. There's a reason California's no longer permitting gas in new construction. Induction has vastly improved!
      4. Switch to all-green electricity. See my note on #2.

    1. I think that we should be willing (taking the risk) to make bold changes, as long as they fit in the direction we see the community going in the long term (with Material-UI empowering it).

    1. We've stated what's required multiple times now: #14540 (comment) #14540 (comment), and the follow up arguments weren't convincing. Follow Rafael's advice in new smaller PRs to advance this or it'll simply stay closed
    1. GitLab is moving all development for both GitLab Community Edition and Enterprise Edition into a single codebase. The current gitlab-ce repository will become a read-only mirror, without any proprietary code. All development is moved to the current gitlab-ee repository, which we will rename to just gitlab in the coming weeks. As part of this migration, issues will be moved to the current gitlab-ee project.

    1. AMP formerly stood for “Accelerated Mobile Pages”, but now works completely across desktop and mobile.
    1. Stalking Cat has experienced behavioral changes in the vein of no longer drinkin' and druggin', heightened empathy, and reacting to certain things in different ways. By no longer denying these feelings, it's been easier to deal with different situations.

      Reacts to things in a more "natural cat" way than anything else. Very cat-like in actions. (Lynx -> Tiger for e-mail address.)-> general feline affinity, but focus on tiger because it's the largest non-extinct cat on this continent.

      Feline affinity is more great with big cats than smaller, domestic cats. (Primal nature? Bow hunting (Indian tradition) deer. Mutual respect with cats, 10' near bobcat, 25' near mountain lion, leaves when known hunting territory for another animal.) If you're not bow-hunting, and using a gun, you don't deserve that kill, basically. Gun hunting separates people from the experience of hunting. Stalking Cat is very much a cat in hunting & associated mannerisms.

    1. To follow conventions of naming across GitLab, and to further move away from the build term and toward job, some CI/CD environment variables were renamed for GitLab 9.0 release.
    1. Sometimes plugins can conflict with a theme or with each other.  Disable all your plugins and see if the problem persists. If everything is working once the plugins were disabled it means there's a conflict with a plugin or maybe even a set of plugins. Enable the plugins one by one to identify the one that is creating the conflict.
    1. Right click on the /wp-content/plugins folder and rename it plugins.old. This will deactivate all of the plugins. In most cases, this will also lock the WordPress admin area as well.  You will still be able to perform these steps from within the File Manager.Reactivate the plugins folder by following the above instructions and renaming the folder plugins. This will allow you to reactivate each plugin individually to isolate the offending plugin and resolve the 500 Internal Server Error.  This should also allow access to the WordPress Dashboard again. From the WordPress Dashboard: Reactivate each plugin (one at a time) and refresh the website to see if the issue has been resolved.

    1. Our hope is that once a formal specification for these extensions is settled, this patchset can be used as a base to upstream the changes in the original project.

      What does "can be used as a base to upstream the changes in the original project" mean here?

    1. HBOT was found to improve graft survival, complete healing of grafts, and lessen infection in patients with a graft. Patients with osteoradionecrosis showed improved bone changes.
    1. However, a recent pathological study found scarce interstitial mononuclear inflammatory infiltrates in heart tissue without substantial myocardial damage in a patient with COVID-19,13 suggesting that COVID-19 might not directly impair the heart.
    1. Vice versa, we did not observe viral particles in cardiac myocytes and, therefore, we cannot infer on viral cardiotropism. Cardiac myocytes showed non‐specific damage that was mainly characterized by focal myofibrillar lysis. In addition, we did not observe cytopathic endothelia and small intramural vessel inflammation or thrombosis. Other cases are needed to confirm this observation.
    2. Cardiac myocytes showed non‐specific features consisting of focal myofibrillar lysis, and lipid droplets. We did not observe viral particles in myocytes and endothelia. Small intramural vessels were free from vasculitis and thrombosis. EMB did not show significant myocyte hypertrophy or nuclear changes; interstitial fibrosis was minimal, focal, and mainly perivascular
    3. The pathologic study showed low‐grade interstitial and endocardial inflammation (Figure 1A and 1B). Large (>20 μm), vacuolated, CD68‐positive macrophages were seen with immune‐light microscopy (Figure 1C and 1D); they were ultrastructurally characterized by cytopathy, with membrane damage and cytoplasmic vacuoles (Figure 1E). The ultrastructural study demonstrated single or small groups of viral particles with the morphology (dense round viral envelope and electron‐dense spike‐like structures on their surface) and size (variable between 70 and 120 nm) of coronaviruses (Figure 2). COVID‐19 infected Vero cells were used as control. The viral particles were observed in cytopathic, structurally damaged interstitial cells that demonstrated loss of the cytoplasmic membrane integrity (Figure 3)

    1. Google Analytics Premium (later to be renamed Google Analytics 360)

      Google Analytics Premium was a better name, because it is very clear what it is.

      Google Analytics 360 sounds dumb to me. What does 360 have to do with anything?

      Reminds me Xbox Live 360 (and, though an unrelated number, Office 365). Are they copying Microsoft?

      Reminds me of YouTube Red. Where do they come up with this stuff?

    1. Not only are public transport datasets useful for benchmarking route planning systems, they are also highly useful for benchmarking geospatial [13, 14] and temporal [15, 16] RDF systems due to the intrinsic geospatial and temporal properties of public transport datasets. While synthetic dataset generators already exist in the geospatial and temporal domain [17, 18], no systems exist yet that focus on realism, and specifically look into the generation of public transport datasets. As such, the main topic that we address in this work, is solving the need for realistic public transport datasets with geospatial and temporal characteristics, so that they can be used to benchmark RDF data management and route planning systems. More specifically, we introduce a mimicking algorithm for generating realistic public transport data, which is the main contribution of this work.

    1. Health care has emerged as a key fault line for Democrats. All of them want to make changes, but their plans vary widely

      Every Democrat wants to change the current healthcare system, either with a new system or refine the current system.

    1. It is not really a trifling effort, as those will discover who have yet to essay it. To “clear” even seven hours and a half from the jungle is passably difficult. For some sacrifice has to be made. One may have spent one’s time badly, but one did spend it; one did do something with it, however ill-advised that something may have been. To do something else means a change of habits. And habits are the very dickens to change! Further, any change, even a change for the better, is always accompanied by drawbacks and discomforts. If you imagine that you will be able to devote seven hours and a half a week to serious, continuous effort, and still live your old life, you are mistaken. I repeat that some sacrifice, and an immense deal of volition, will be necessary. And it is because I know the difficulty, it is because I know the almost disastrous effect of failure in such an enterprise, that I earnestly advise a very humble beginning. You must safeguard your self-respect. Self-respect is at the root of all purposefulness, and a failure in an enterprise deliberately planned deals a desperate wound at one’s self-respect. Hence I iterate and reiterate: Start quietly, unostentatiously.

    1. Go out and see the birds along the building, singing, because, [therewas] no snow! Everybody be standing over the pipes, talking because it’s warm,standing out all winter long.’

      I visit my family in Chicago every winter.. I can assure you all it's nothing like this anymore. It's cold outside. Whether there is snow or not (due to storm variations every year) it's cold.. very cold.

    1. In the youngest, least urbanized city of Zaria he finds most dwelling construction stemming from generational changes in size and com- position of the resident kin group (341). In the two older cities where land and housing are scarce, he finds most new construction is to accommodate renters who make up close to half of the household population
