    1. In Frankreich haben beide Kammern des Parlaments ein Gesetz über erneuerbare Energien verabschiedet, allerdings gibt es Unterschiede zwischen beiden Versionen, die noch einen Verhandlungsprozess nötig machen. Nach Ansicht vieler Kritiker stellt das Gesetz nicht sicher, dass seine Ziele tatsächlich erreicht werden.

    1. A command determines whether it is in a workspace context by first examining the GOWORK environment variable. If GOWORK is set to off, the command will be in a single-module context. If it is empty or not provided, the command will search the current working directory, and then successive parent directories, for a file go.work. If a file is found, the command will operate in the workspace it defines; otherwise, the workspace will include only the module containing the working directory. If GOWORK names a path to an existing file that ends in .work, workspace mode will be enabled. Any other value is an error. You can use the go env GOWORK command to determine which go.work file the go command is using. go env GOWORK will be empty if the go command is not in workspace mode.

      Go workspace mode

    1. Right? So what's happening inside your brain right now? And for thousands of years, we've been thinking and writing and experiencing awe, and we know so little about it. And so to try to understand what is it and what does it do, my Lab of Misfits had just the wonderful opportunity and the pleasure 00:08:07 to work with who are some of the greatest creators of awe that we know: the writers, the creators, the directors, the accountants, the people who are Cirque Du Soleil. And so we went to Las Vegas, and we recorded the brain activity of people while they're watching the performance, over 10 performances of "O," which is iconic Cirque performance. 00:08:34 And we also measured the behavior before the performance, as well as a different group after the performance. And so we had over 200 people involved. So what is awe? What is happening inside your brain right now? It's a brain state. OK? The front part of your brain, the prefrontal cortex, which is responsible for your executive function, your attentional control, is now being downregulated. 00:09:02 The part of your brain called the DMN, default mode network, which is the interaction between multiple areas in your brain, which is active during, sort of, ideation, creative thinking in terms of divergent thinking and daydreaming, is now being upregulated. And right about now, the activity in your prefrontal cortex is changing. It's becoming asymmetrical in its activity, 00:09:28 biased towards the right, which is highly correlated when people step forward into the world, as opposed to step back. In fact, the activity across the brains of all these people was so correlated that we're able to train an artificial neural network to predict whether or not people are experiencing awe to an accuracy of 75 percent on average, with a maximum of 83 percent. So what does this brain state do? 00:09:58 Well, others have demonstrated, for instance, Professors Haidt and Keltner, have told us that people feel small but connected to the world. And their prosocial behavior increases, because they feel an increased affinity towards others. And we've also shown in this study that people have less need for cognitive control. They're more comfortable with uncertainty without having closure. 00:10:26 And their appetite for risk also increases. They actually seek risk, and they are better able at taking it. And something that was really quite profound is that when we asked people, "Are you someone who has a propensity to experience awe?" They were more likely to give a positive response after the performance than they were [before]. They literally redefined themselves and their history. So, awe is possibly the perception that is bigger than us. 00:11:00 And in the words of Joseph Campbell, "Awe is what enables us to move forward." Or in the words of a dear friend, probably one of our greatest photographers, still living photographers, Duane Michaels, he said to me just the other day that maybe it gives us the curiosity to overcome our cowardice.

      Scientific research demonstrating the beneficial impacts of being in a state of awe.

    1. “focus mode,”

      The idea of a "focus mode" or "distraction free mode" is exactly the wrong framing for writing. You don't want to focus on the nothing and emptiness of a page or a screen. You want to start by focusing on an idea and preferably many ideas. Do this first and then proceed from there.

    1. Tonality refers to how our harmony affects our song's mood and vibe.

      Hmm? Again, it makes some sense in context. Yet it could lead to quite a bit of confusion. I honestly thought it was going to be about actual tonality. Yet it’s about mode, calling it tonality. Disconnecting mode and mood. It’s nice to use simple language. This isn’t that. It’s using jargon and shifting it. The technical term for that might be… obfuscation. Strange

    1. Beamer

      Another point worth mention, you must have beamer package installed in your texmf tree or if you use linux or macOS, install beamer separately. None of these commands or options will work if beamer itself is not installed. These tutorials are useless if they do not mention these things.

    1. Epilogue

      Previous narrators make a brief statement in the Epilogue. I think it looks like a curtain call of the narrators which make the reader vividly feel the emotion of narrators. I really appreciate the structure of the novel a lot and very enjoy reading it. The story is told by different narrators which do not make the novel disconnected but make the novel full of mystery.

    1. "No culture has ever tried, self-consciously and scientifically, to design a symbol that would last 10,000 years and still be intelligible," said David B. Givens, an anthropologist who helps plan nuclear-site warnings (LATimes). "And even if we succeed, would the message be believed?"

      Conca brings in different media information. He brings in a second medium into the mix to try to reach the audience from a different point of view. It does use several modes like linguistic and gestural. He uses words that can be quite subjective like "believed" or "intelligible". And does leave a link to the other media, to connect issue of similar subject to another point of view.

    2. Dr. James Conca is an expert on energy, nuclear and dirty bombs, a planetary geologist, and a professional speaker. Follow him on Twitter @jimconca and see his book at Amazon.com

      This is a more gestural mode of communication, it provides a more interactive form of communication. It provides the authors social media and a link to his published book. It provides a bio and a more detailed insight to who Dr.Conca is and what his mindset towards the subject is. It helps the reader better understand the authors point of view and purpose.

    3. There are 4 four requirements that must be met to successfully send a message to the future: • message must survive (durable) • message must be found (in plain sight) • message must be understood (build in a Rosetta stone) • message must be believed (so the message must be comprehensive enough for it to be judged as true)

      Conca is showing that all forms of multimodal communication must be used to get the maximum effect for the maximum amount of time. The better organized it is for the reader to understand the message.

    4. Oil&Gas production in the Permian Basin (that hosts the WIPP deep geologic nuclear waste repository) compared to production in the next largest fields.

      The data charge can further help readers understand the situation. By presenting data with visual aid readers can now see the changes that are happening rather than just try to think about them by reading it. Also it creates a better point of argument and persuasive tone by using data charts such as these.

    5. These will be supported by "information in multiple languages in multiple media" to try to convey the potential danger

      Again showing the importance of linguistic modes of communication by presenting multiple languages on information it allows for a more significant chance that it will be understood by a larger demographic.

    6. In Europe, there is a strong current of thinking that future sites of waste repositories should somehow be integrated into human society so that the warnings are transmitted from generation to generation, sort of Keepers of the Sacred Fire.  Instead of creating facilities that are totally cut off from society, disposal facilities could be made part of the fabric of the community, integrating its existence safely into the future.

      In this section Conca is suggesting a almost cultural vibe of safety to pass from generation to generation. It's similar to traditional practices passed down to from generation to generation like cow-tow or meditation. This idea is leaning more towards a spatial modal representation of message. By creating a more closer proximity between people and the ideas of safety it will allow for a more universal sign that will last for generations.

    7. The search for how to utter a crucial message through time involves many scholarly disciplines, including semiotics (the study of signs), linguistics, history and anthropology.  This last one is tricky. King Tut got it really wrong - both tomb raiders and archeologists didn’t believe his warnings of death.  The fourth point means the message we send to the future must include a great deal of information - much, much more than can be written on a granite monument.

      Showing signs of danger that are only prevalent in our time will not work. Conca is suggesting something further than what can written or what can be shown. The message has to present some aura around it to make it more intimidating when giving off cautions. This Aural mode of thinking can come from take elements from both visual and linguistic modes to create a more emphasis to the message someone is trying to portray.

    8. Many people think we need to put scary signs, warning humans of nuclear waste buried in the ground, in the distant future after we’ve had some kind of apocalypse

      Using a more visual presentation may be more efficient, if we are talking about thousands of years into the future. The use of the visual modal context of the photo shows a universally negative image, even if a person doesn't know the context of the photo, the dark colored imagery and overall negative vibe of the photo shows to anyone what is up ahead is not good.

    9. How will "STAY OUT!" be written 5,000 years from now? When we’ve had some kind of apocalypse, all society is gone, no one remembers America even existed, let alone how to read English. But we’re still drilling for oil.

      Conca brings a very interesting point to the matter, from the context of the article the reader knows that it's referring to the nuclear danger zones that people should not enter and have clear markings warning them. But Conca suggest that how will people understand the phrase and how will they interpret it? "STAY OUT!" can mean several things it could be someone's land or secured property by the government. Without the context of linguistic modal text ideas and message can be understood in a risky way.
