Three cheers for socialism | Commonweal
[J]ust because a totalitarian regime happens to call itself socialist—or, for that matter, a republic, or a union of republics, or a people’s republic, or a people’s democratic republic—we are under no obligation to take it at its word. What we call “democratic socialism” in the United States is difficult to distinguish from the social-democratic traditions of post-war Western Europe, and there we find little evidence that a democracy becomes a dictatorship simply by providing such staples of basic social welfare as universal health care. At least, it is hard not to notice that the social-democratic governments of Europe have always gained power only by being voted into office, and have always relinquished it peacefully when voted out again. None of them has ever made war on free markets, even in attempting (often all too hesitantly) to impose prudent and ethically salutary regulations on business.

Gender Diversity in Greek and Latin Grammar: Ten Ancient Discussions
grammatical gender is actually complex and shifting, a fact that Greek and Roman grammarians were highly conscious of. They debated whether grammatical gender was inherent in the things themselves or a product of human convention. They devised a technical vocabulary to articulate the difference between grammatical gender identity and grammatical gender expression. They argued about whether their language had three genders — as we teach — or perhaps only two, or maybe five, or even as many as seven, if you count “fluid” and “uncertain” and as distinct categories (and they did!).
Grammatical gender, at its most basic, is a system of noun classes whose forms agree with other inflected words, like adjectives. French nouns have two genders, German three, Chechen six, and Ganda ten. Wikipedia has a handy list of languages by type of grammatical gender.
The fact that we think of these classes as “genders” at all is a product of historical circumstance rather than linguistic necessity. There is nothing inherently feminine about aqua (“water”) or masculine about rivus (“stream”). From a purely morphological perspective, we could dump the very concept of grammatical gender and call these groups “noun classes,” which is apparently the usual term for them in Bantu languages.

John Lennon's "Imagine" Was Turned Into a Comic Strip, and the Result is Incredibly Beautiful. | The Unbounded Spirit
What would the world be like if everyone decided to let go of competition and start collaborating with one another so as to live in harmony and peace? I know, that’s a quite difficult thing to imagine, considering the crazy world we currently live in, with violence making its presence almost everywhere. But illustrator Pablo Stanley gave it a good try, and below you’ll have the opportunity to see one of his most well-known comic strips (and, personally, my favorite one), based on John Lennon’s popular song “Imagine.”

7 billion conscious human beings would create a very different world | Energy Therapy
People are worried that with an ever increasing population we won’t have enough land to live on… that we won’t have enough food, or clean, drinkable water in the very near future… Yet, this is truly a matter of consciousness! 7 billion conscious, awake human beings would create a VERY different world to the state of our world today.

We Need an Ecological Civilization Before It’s Too Late | Patterns of Meaning
In the face of climate breakdown and ecological overshoot, alluring promises of “green growth” are no more than magical thinking. We need to restructure the fundamentals of our global cultural/economic system to cultivate an “ecological civilization”: one that prioritizes the health of living systems over short-term wealth production.

コンサートホールで写真撮影するときに気をつけたいこと | Notes of Life
"コンサートホールでの撮影は絞りや露出も難しいですが、やはり優先したいのはシャッタースピードです。

演奏者は基本的に静止してくれないので、シャッタースピードを下げてしまうと「ぶれた」写真になってしまうからです。

今回は1/60秒を基本として、ISOオート、手動露出補正で撮影しました。

それ以上遅く(1/40とか)すると、特に指揮者がぶれてしまってよくない結果になりました

明るさの足りない写真は、後で補正して明るくすることも一応できます。

しかし、「ぶれた」写真は補正のしようがないので、ボツになってしまいます。

それを防ぐには、「シャッタースピード優先モード」などのシャッタースピードを指定できるモードを使いましょう。
