Fridays for Future Tea Light Action on 2020-12-11 in Klagenfurt Fridays for Future has also remembered in Klagenfurt, Austria with a tea ligth lettering on the New Square about the 1.5°C target (). The reduction commmitments of the Council of Europe do currently amount to -55% netto (which equals 50.5%-52.8% brutto) which is however still insufficient for the 1.5° target that required by now -80%. Netto means that you need to subtract the CO2 absorbation achieved by nature. That would already be too much for insular states and the coral reefs. China has commited to a reduction of 65% up to 2030 in comparison with the GDP.



ViewRSS: search for a regular expression

It is a new feature that you can search in the online RSS-viewer for messages containing a regular expression. That can be a singleton word, a choice between multiple words like ‘(atea|debcheckroot)’ or it can be several words separated by ‘.*’ that must then occur in the specified order. If you want to search for an entire word and not an expression, which can also equal the part of a word, you must add a space at the beginning and the end, like ‘ EU ’. There is no case sensitivity between upper and lower case. If you wanna use the regular expression special characters ‘^’ or ‘$’ for the beginning and end of a message then you must respectively follow or precede these special characters also by a space. It is sufficient that a regular expression is encountered in any of many translations of a message in order for all of these messages to be displayed.

In just 23 days, a judge will rule on the U.S. request to extradite Julian Assange. At HMS Prison Belmarsh, surrounded by some of the world’s worst criminals, Julian is in near-total lockdown in conditions former U.N. official Nils Melzer calls torture. His prison wing is enduring a COVID outbreak and he is being kept in cold conditions without access to winter clothing sent by his family. Meanwhile, his family and two children don't know if they will ever see their father again.

I have just got an email from fightforthefuture: With the news that Google’s former CEO, Eric Schmidt, is being discussed for positions, and that former Facebook leaders are acting as advisors on the transition team, we need to act fast to make sure corporate lobbyists and execs don’t get appointed to positions of power within the administration. — … and I, the author of this page, personally do not welcome a fromer Google CEO in such a position either as Google still censors its search results for my pages: see my previous messages about it (or: click on ‘type: new’ in ViewRSS). Facebook on the other hand is even worse. With Facebook Basics they wanted to abolish the free internet (net neutrality) by offering Facebook-only internet at uncompetitively low rates that would force competitors to surrender starting with developing countries.
