Unpopular opinion: One should never call themselves an expat. Sure, it used to have a specific meaning, but nowadays, its meaning is just "privileged (white) immigrant".
Ever since I moved to Berlin, I made a point to call myself an immigrant, and it was surprising how many low-key racists got confused by that, as they preferred to call white immigrants expats to differentiate that from "the bad ones".
Note, you're not bad for calling yourself an expat, but it's worth a reevaluation.
Carl Sagan Keynote Speech at Emerging Issues Forum (1990)
Dr. Sagan's 2/9/1990 address before the 5th Emerging Issues Forum at NCSU, broadcast live on NC Public TV. Sagan spoke at the invitation of former Gov. Jim Hunt, co-creator of the Forum. The speech begins at 6:12.
Thirty-one years ago, Carl Sagan (host of the original Cosmos television series, think of today's Neil DeGrasse Tyson) spoke on the risks and remedies of global warming and climate change. If you want to have some idea of what we knew and what was recommended at the time, and how many decades we've lost ... Watch and listen.
It's also worth emphasizing that this event was held in North Carolina, at the invitation of the governor of that state, something hard to imagine occurring today.
Though the Republican Party is revealed again as the party of denial opposed to science.
Apparently a server outage has temporarily bricked all tesla cars, as they rely on some internet data to operate.
While everyone's still talking about Snow Crash, a big part of the dystopia was the client server model where local machines were just dumb terminals for the cloud and couldn't do /anything/. It's an important enough feature for the book that it's the source of the title.
dad, medical, $ needed (boosts ok)
My senile dad lost self awareness yesterday. He's gonna need a nurse 24/7 for at least a week until he regains consciousness. (And if he doesn't, we need to get him to the hospital. He's not insured)
My mom is over 70yo, diabetic, overweight and has a spine problem - she can't change his diapers. I need to work full time to be able to afford our already high expenses.
And nurses aren't free.
We need as much help as we can.
