"Latinx" or "Latine"?
  • Latinx doesn't work and it's embarrassing to force it. Latine at least kind of sounds right, but what are we doing here? If you're speaking English and don't want to say Latino or Latina, you can just say Latin American. In Spanish if an individual says they want to be referred to as latine then you should respect that. Otherwise, latinos is fine for a mixed gender group.

  • Toyota Mirai Class Action Lawsuit Says Cars Aren't Worth It
  • It's competition for passengers. If it's too easy and inexpensive for people to travel long distances in their cars, why bother with mass transit? I don't know about California, but here on the East coast, chargers keep popping up, the highways are getting wider, and there's barely any new rail service coming.

  • Toyota Mirai Class Action Lawsuit Says Cars Aren't Worth It
  • What we really need is more rail and less cars of any type. Anyway, it's too bad that BEVs and their "fast" chargers are getting foisted on us. Maybe a future Who Killed the Hydrogen Car? documentary will get to the bottom of it.

    HORSESHOE CRAB UPDATE!

    > HORSESHOE CRAB UPDATE! > > I have been recognized by the United States Department of the Interior Fish and Wildlife Service for participating in the Horseshoe Crab Tagging Program by reporting the tag I found last weekend (https://pixelfed.crimedad.work/i/web/post/715310569850044948)! They sent me a certificate and a pewter pin.

  • It's crazy to me that policy makers insist that electricity generation has to be profitable. Just nationalize it. We could have a surplus of greenhouse gas free thermal power not only for electricity, but for heating and steel, fertilizer, and vehicle fuel production for years by now. Instead we have to wait to figure out how to satisfy investors and keep electricity just scarce enough.

    Android users, what's stopping you from switching to an iPhone?
  • I get a headache every time I have to help my mom with her iPhone or try to do something on my kid's iPad. I know part of it is that I'm just very used to Android, but there's no excuse for finding an app or setting being so tedious on iOS.

  • It's an important ingredient for the safety of injectable drugs and the crabs are returned to the sea alive. If a synthetic alternative takes off, I am concerned that the government will not care as much about protecting this species.

    Toyota builds experimental hydrogen-powered pizza oven and grill.

    Toyota worked with Japanese appliance brand Rinnai to make a hydrogen-powered pizza oven, and it also developed a hydrogen-burning barbecue.

    I wish I got to do fun little projects like this at my job. Anyway, this proof of concept shows that hydrogen would be a great alternative to propane and natural gas for cooking. Hat tip to @[email protected].
