Goshawk.

For a few years, each winter I would visit a location in Shropshire, and wait patiently for a glimpse of this fearsome raptor, the goshawk.

I would frequently hear them calling, but sightings were few and far between, sometimes without seeing anything for hours at a time.

This moment, when one broke cover to display over the trees, made it worthwhile. It circled for just a few seconds before vanishing once more.

@Benfraoch I was lucky with the light here though, so don't feel too bad. I have plenty of dark dots against a bright sky! I just don't air them for all to laugh at. 😉
That makes me feel much better, ta.

Advanced content filter blank page


!Friendica Admins

Hi, I tried to use the "Advanced content filter" addon. Sadly, I just get a blank page and the following error in my console:

Uncaught ReferenceError: Vue is not defined
    <anonymous> https://fediweij.nl/addon/advancedcontentfilter/advancedcontentfilter.js:15
advancedcontentfilter.js:15:1


Should I rebuild some javascript files somehow or is something else broken? Thanks for the help!

@Ruben Verweij Sorry about that, this is a known issue in the current stable release that has been fixed in the develop branch and will be released next month.

@Mark @Hypolite Petovan Okay, thank you, no problem. I'll wait for the release, good luck in getting it ready!

Question: is the WP RSS Aggregator pro plugin worth it?

I want to set up a specialized mastodon account/instance where I write about my work and I want to get that as complete posts on my website. The problem is that writing on my website takes time and a lot of effort, and the snippets I write on mastodon (or Twitter for that matter) are a lot easier. #dtv Boosting is appreciated!

I live in a cloudy, cold, unforgiving place and there are lots of crops that can't grow here. I hate growing my own food and prefer to grow flowers that I then trade for enough food to can and freeze for the winter. I also collect food scraps from neighbors and then trade them eggs from my chickens. This is a nice idea but I always cringe when I see it because it's thoroughly impractical for myriad reasons.
@fiddidollapitti Hi Megh. I fully understand what you're saying. I live in Sweden, it has long cold dark winters, drought in summer and a very short growing season, so I understand it's not that easy. Growing food is possible in most areas of the world, but for some it's more easy than others. Growing flowers and exchanging them for food sounds fine!
@Megh
hahaha i do try! And every time another of my crops fail I am grateful that others are better at it and will share 💚🌱 but if it came down to a real situation where I had to grow my own food to survive, my children would surely suffer
I mean, I do love the sentiment - but ultimately there should probably be some sort of diversification of tasks. I can't grow food to save my life (literally...) but my house CAN throw pots, raise chickens, coordinate child care, work metal, repair bicycles, shoot/hunt, etc. It'll take all kinds 🙂
@fiddidollapitti It sounds like you're doing pretty good to me. We all have a different skill base and the key is to find what we're good at and develop it!

Groei groen met Land van Ons


Groei groen met Land van Ons

We hebben jou nodig om de #biodiversiteit in Nederland weer in orde te maken! #LandVanOns is een #burgercoöperatie. Iedereen kan meedoen, want het Nederlandse landschap is van ons allemaal. Door met elkaar eigenaar te worden kunnen we zélf voor #verandering zorgen. Iedere deelnemer heeft evenveel invloed in de coöperatie, of je nu voor €10.000 of voor €20 inlegt. Onze ambitie is groot: in 10 jaar tijd willen we samen 300.000 hectare, oftewel 15% van het Nederlandse #boerenland opkopen en hier het leven laten terugkeren.

Samen gaan we voor een boerenland vol leven! Laat op #BlackFriday het #groen groeien en koop jouw stukje land via https://landvanons.nl/groeigroen/

Good news — Power generated by renewables is going UP.

Bad news — Power generated by fossil fuels is *not* going DOWN. New capacity generated by renewables adds to our existing energy capacity instead of replacing it.

Worse news — We're still producing and consuming more energy year after year, pumping more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere. We're also producing and then discarding more non-recycled goods year after year after year.

Do you use #ncview to quickly browse your #NetCDF files?

You are not the only one !

Of course, a problem with #ncview is that it comes with bad #colormaps, including many 🌈 rainbows 😭 .

But we have a solution for you !

Install #ncmaps and bring scientific colormaps to #ncview !

@ruben Using ncview has been a love (for its simple usage) and hate (for its colormaps) story for many years of my life. Happy to see that there is movement here!
Cheers Christopher. I agree, colormaps were my top-1 hate in #ncview. But now this is solved (#ncmaps).

There are a bunch of other things I'd change, but they all require diving and changing ncview's code...

In Nederland zijn al 7,5 miljoen flexitariërs. Door minder vlees of vis en meer groenten, noten en granen te eten, zijn ze niet alleen goed bezig voor hun gezondheid en portemonnee. Het is ook goed voor dierenwelzijn, natuur en het klimaat. Groenten en fruit verbouwen kost veel minder energie en grondstoffen dan het maken van een stuk vlees. Bovendien draagt het bij aan een eerlijke verdeling van voedsel in de wereld.

Ik denk dat je dat niet te serieus moet nemen en die mensen vooral toevallig ook weleens een pizza quattro formaggi eten. De vleesconsumptie blijft hetzelfde. Als ik tegen mensen zeg dat ik vegan ben, eten ze ook allemaal bijna nooit vlees, maar toevallig wel altijd als ik ze zie eten...
de nationale week zonder vlees en zuivel zorgt ook voor meer inspiratie in de keuken of diverser en gezonder te eten en koken
