I presume you all have seen this guy? apparently he crashed their websites with his popularity: Morris Animal Refuge on Twitter “OMG, big boi Mr. B is a CHONK. He’s a chonk of a chonk. He redefines the term. Can you guess how much he weighs? More importantly, can you give him a home? Adopt this jumbo-sized package of fluff & love: https://t.co/v8aB6PzBbL. Please RT to help this sad-eyed guy find happiness!” https://twitter.com/MorrisAnimal/status/1164554974057107456
The 1A show today will be on the 1619 project - it should be streamed from WAMU as well as the 1A website. The 1619 Project - 1A "It has been 400 years since over 20 enslaved African people landed in Virginia." https://the1a.org/shows/2019-08-22/the-1619-project
just got a request for us to digitize? acquire? 14 years worth of conference proceedings... um no? but, hey, my larger institution has them in print - 3-4 volumes each - knock yourself out?
I think someone flying united from Chicago and on to South Carolina isnt' getting their text messages.
This https://www.federalregister.gov/documents/2017/06/15/2017-12621/presidential-determination-pursuant-to-section-4533a5-of-the-defense-production-act-of-1950 originally had a memo with it that provided details. According to: https://www.businessdefense.gov/News/News-Display/Article/1248417/critical-space-investments-authorized-by-the-president-utilizing-dpa-title-iii/ but... it 404s on the whitehouse page and archive.org has 301 errors with the new link not working either (https://www.whitehouse.gov/presidential-actions/presidential-determination-pursuant-section-4533a5-defense-production-act-1950-2/) . I looked in Hein online and PQ Congressional and elsewhere on the DOD Industry page (granted, not an expert on these things)... other ideas how I could find the backup documents?
or... maybe there never were any more details just different versions of the same thing in the federal register?· Christina Pikas
wayback machine with the URL?· Stephªn1e☀️CogSc1L1brªr1ªn☀️
so i did get all the way back eventually with the wayback machine and it's the federal register notice. so maybe there isn't anything else· Christina Pikas
It seems I have actually grown pablano instead of yellow bell peppers. I can't think of anything my kids Will eat
they just put a sign outside my door with "thru".... i'm gonna have to see that like a million times a day... and not deface it.
what's that tool that you can anonymously discuss pubmed articles? was caught up in a lawsuit with 'mics? I can't think of it.
these people are all asking for hard things, and the one and only person here who can do ILL is out for the week and i'm just lost: AAS conference paper in their advances series (should be in our volume in our archives - they're not answering), AAS journal article (not online, don't have print, others don't have), a navy technical pub and their sites - as usual - are afu and not helping... oh and metadata standards for file types... yes there are lots, but it's not fun to search i might just go home now
I might be able to help on the metadata standards question. What file types are they interested in?· LibSkrat
You sound like you're coming down with a cough and should go home right away so you don't get anyone sick.· orgmonkey 7
^^you could probably - they are just want to adopt an existing established standard instead of brainstorming their own things. they want both type like audio, image, video, text and also things like the text is csv and also things like that csv is latin-1 .... So I see datacite things, and MIME types (but that has a new name)... what other ideas? it doesn't all have to be in one field· Christina Pikas
I'd use MIME types, yeah. The technical metadata's a bit harder, as that tends to be filetype-specific, so if you're mixing things up it gets harder. I might use vanilla Dublin Core with the MIME type in dc.format and the rest in dc.description.· LibSkrat
ongoing saga of MPOW funeral flowers. Admin is back from vacation. The florist has apparently been taking them back and forth to my house for days and my spouse has not been answering the door and they won't leave them. They are now going to bring them to work and MPOW will not be charged.
someone on liblicense said that they had enough traffic from hacked credentials to impact their usage statistics. I personally think this says a lot more about the quality of their IT than about sc?h?b ... but it surprised me. Has anyone else had this experience or heard of same?
When I was at Caltech there were occasional months of anomalously high usage for specific resources that we assumed were for the same reason· kbuxton
There have been attempted research-center hacks, e.g. from the Mabna Institute. I hear most of the way in has been phishing, but I wouldn't be surprised to hear about purchased credentials.· LibSkrat
Patricia Hill Collins' new book on Intersectionality has the intro online for free: https://www.dukeupress.edu/Assets/PubMaterials/978-1-4780-0646-6_601.pdf (I took classes in socy while she was there - and actually with some of the students she acknowledges but didn't have the opportunity to meet her or take her classes)
Independence day miracle: got the spouse to take the kids by himself so I can stay home. Laid out my outfit for tomorrow. Shoes aren't the best but oh well. sigh.
oh man. I still cannot find my mom's cousins. They have very common first and last names (John, Bob, and Fred)... trying fb, linkedin, and reference usa. thought for sure i had one - right small town, right name, right approx age... he was very nice on the phone but not the right one
Ancestry.com/23andme/gedmatch (if any of your mom's relatives has the account) could give some clues if you ran out of other options· дама средних лет
My Mom died this morning at 6:20. I was not in time despite repeated urgent calls from my sister. Shit. At least she's not in pain anymore
when I saw this article: https://www.nature.com/articles/d41586-019-01997-8 I was like - oh that's cool. I didn't realize until today that she's actually at MPOW at it was discussions with others at MPOW that sparked her sharing of the list. I hope she comes back/stays when she finishes her Phd.
lest anyone think my mom was a small minded bigot because she pulled us from the dysfunctional public schools, I just remembered how accepting and loving she was when she explained to my sister and me how her cousin's daughter who was assigned a different gender at birth would now be living as her true self. My sister and I didn't understand, of course, and tv was full of wrong ideas, but mom was kind and persistent that this was who she is and not playing dress-up. This would have been like when I was 10 or 12 maybe and my mom's cousin lived in small town eastern shore Maryland so it was probably very difficult all around.
that's lovely· Stephªn1e☀️CogSc1L1brªr1ªn☀️
As someone who went to a relatively small rural high school, I understand. Many small minds. I don't know of anyone who was openly out, but I know of at least one friend who was gay. Looking back, even that was probably very difficult for him. I'm glad your mom was a good soul.· JiMaSoMA 2
(i didn't think that about your mom from your comment earlier. i just thought how complicated and fraught "busing" is -- which doesn't get at the real issue of providing equal education to all)· Stephªn1e☀️CogSc1L1brªr1ªn☀️ 2
A group here - think historians, political scientists, economists not engineers - has been asked to create condensed summaries or pocket guides to some of their ~300p books. They want to know if they should reproduce the extensive reference list in the guide. Looking at, for example, Skillsoft summaries, I would say no, but those are like "the authors say this that and the other thing" ... whereas these are like "here is the answer, for the reasoning check the big doc"... ideas where to look for how this should be approached? I'd like to point to some style guide
