Striking Workers Are Bringing Back 1970s "Mindfuck" Tactics

vice.com/en_uk/article/kzd7az/

"Deliveroo and UberEats riders, [...] are masters of the mindfuck. Because they’re technically self-employed, the laws on strike action and trade unions don’t apply to them. That means that the slow bureaucracy of postal ballots and turnout thresholds designed to prevent workers from taking collective action goes out the window. Instead, these workers can just do what makes sense to them. The result has been an explosion in militancy, as the platforms try to cut their workers’ already-low wages. Strikes are now breaking out every couple of weeks with little or no prior notice. They’re organised through complex networks of encrypted messenger chats which are completely invisible to platform bosses, meaning that all their standard management techniques need to be rewritten."

Elon Musk is damaging the night sky. His satellites interfere with astronomers’ observations of stars and potentially harmful near-Earth asteroids, leaving streaks on images. No regulations require him to fix the problem. Soon it may be unfixable. forbes.com/sites/startswithaba

political rant 

The owner/operator of the food truck where I get sandwiches sometimes (he's prolly in mid- or early-Gen-X) said to me today, "I really like your shoes, man. More men should wear pink."

I said, "I agree. Pink and purple are underrated colors."

He said, "I think people are often too homophobic about it. Like… don't be shy about your feminine side. It's good!"

All I could say was, "Hard agree." It was a good take, IMO.

The BBC's "Climate Change: The Facts" documentary is an emotive message to the public about global heating, environmental destruction and climate crises, and serves as a good introduction to why people across the world must take action if we want to survive.
