"We cannot turn away from suffering, but I can no longer watch the news coverage from Israel and Gaza | Simon Jenkins"
For once in my life I agree with Sir Jenkins. I still read journalistic news and open-source intelligence reports from Gaza, but avoid "tabloid TV" video coverage. The latter adds nothing, while fuelling "ghoulish voyeurism and simplified spectacle".
In my version control courses I often get the question:
🤷 "Should I use GitHub or GitLab?" 🤷
If you are a researcher, I think you can answer that question for yourself by answering the following two questions:
🤝 Where is my community?: Go where your community is.
🏠 Does my institution have a GitLab instance?: If yes, it is often a good idea to at least start your project on the institutional instance. Copying to GitHub later on is done in <5 minutes.…

Tweede Kamer stelt plan minimumloon bij: per 1 juli 1,2 procent omhoog en de partijen noemen dat een flinke koopkrachtverbetering. Nou ik ontving de laatste keer €939,41 (AOW, samenwonend met een jong werkend persoon) dus 1,2% is dan €11,27 in de maand. Je moet toch echt in de politiek zitten om dat een flinke verbetering te durven noemen. Wij hebben meer inkomstenbronnen hoor, maak je over mij maar geen zorgen.
