    1. First things first, I am new to emacs and the eco system so there are packages I’m not aware of.

      emacs is pretty much an operating system. This makes it infinitely configurable and hard for new comers to grok.

    1. We are a strategic discovery, design and development lab working to transition society in response to technological revolution and climate breakdown.

      Seem interesting and progressive. Very elegant website etc 😉

    1. EIT Climate-KIC is a Knowledge and Innovation Community (KIC), working to accelerate the transition to a zero-carbon economy. Supported by the European Institute of Innovation and Technology, we identify and support innovation that helps society mitigate and adapt to climate change. We believe that a decarbonised, sustainable economy is not only necessary to prevent catastrophic climate change, but presents a wealth of opportunities for business and society.

      would be interesting to understand more about their budget, philosophy and approach.

    1. Set the layer variable org-projectile-file to the filename where you want to store project-specific TODOs. If this is an absolute path, all todos will be stored in the same file (organized by project), whereas if it is just a single filename, todos will be stored in each project root. (setq-default dotspacemacs-configuration-layers '((org :variables org-projectile-file "TODOs.org")))

      could use dir_locals to set it per project?

    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.

    2. nsert the defaul

      This information is wrong or outdated. The way to insert a default org-exporter is to do M-x-org-export-default and select default when they present for options.

    1. We want to end gender inequality, and to do this, we need everyone involved

      This is also ethos because she uses the word 'we' again to show us that there is more than one person working on this problem.

    2. We want to try and make sure that it’s tangible.

      Emma wants you to trust her with this issue, so she is using words such as 'we' and 'make sure' to gain her audience's trust that she'll help this issue.

    1. First, according to Trumbull, Olson underestimates diffuse groups’ ability to develop compelling narratives about how they serve the public interest. In fact, weak, diffuse groups have a paradoxical political advantage: precisely because they are weak and diffuse, the public sees them as less self-interested and thus comparatively trustworthy. Second, Olson also underestimates the power of ideological motivation, rather than just money and concentration, to spur activism. Third, “diffuse interests can be represented without mobilization,” thanks to activism by politicians and government officials who take up their cause. (FDR started a federal pension program at a time when “retirees,” as a self-identified social class, did not yet exist. The program created the constituency, rather than the other way around.) Fourth, weak or diffuse interests can link up with concentrated groups to amplify their effectiveness, as when consumers align with exporters to oppose trade protections or when free-speech advocates join with political parties to oppose campaign-finance limits.
