He was the theater’s most revered and influential composer-lyricist of the last half of the 20th century and the driving force behind some of Broadway’s most beloved and celebrated shows.
AbstractThe metabolism of contemporary industrialized societies, that is their energy and material flows, leads to the overconsumption and waste of natural resources, two factors often disregarded in the global ecological equation. In this Discussion article, we examine the amount of natural resources that is increasingly being consumed and wasted by humanity, and propose solutions to reverse this pattern. Since the beginning of the 20th century, societies, especially from industrialized countries, have been wasting resources in different ways. On one hand, the metabolism of industrial societies relies on non-renewable resources. On the other hand, yearly, we directly waste or mismanage around 78% of the total water withdrawn, 49% of the food produced, 31% of the energy produced, 85% of ores and 26% of non-metallic minerals extracted, respectively. As a consequence, natural resources are getting depleted and ecosystems polluted, leading to irreversible environmental changes, biological loss and social conflicts. To reduce the anthropogenic footprint in the planet, and live in harmony with other species and ourselves, we suggest to shift the current economic model based on infinite growth and reduce inequality between and within countries, following a degrowth strategy in industrialized countries. Public education to reduce superfluous consumption is also necessary. In addition, we propose a set of technological strategies to improve the management of natural resources towards circular economies that, like ecosystems, rely only upon renewable resources.
The density of mutations raises concerns. While it’s too early to say, new variants can limit a vaccine’s effectiveness. Hours later Britain banned flights from six countries in the region.
A coming out, checking out life update: I'm queer and non-binary, I'm leaving the 'meta-verse', let's connect in the betta-verse. I won't go into *all* the details here, but I wanted to share this development in my life for a few reasons. I feel like other people's processes of queer self-love and self-recognition and community building have been powerful guides for me. I also want to express gratitude in every cell of my body for the women and queer people who've cared for me and kept me alive through the power of community, all throughout my life. I've been questioning aspects of masculinity for several years / my whole life. I extremely don't have all the answers, but it's clear to me that to live a life freer from fear, to live as who I *want* to be and not who I've been bullied into being, I can't have my vision of myself bound to manhood. My pronouns are they or he for now. I'd love to talk with folks about this who are interested! (And because part of my gender may or may not be being a total nerd, please recommend readings or content if you got em!) I'm quitting Facebook and Instagram soon. I think they're addicting for me, they're toxic for us, and the apps' company is in a particular category of institution contributing to isolation, fascism, commodification, and all the supreme evils of the world. I might seek out other social media platforms as an alternative at some point, because I think social media plays an important role in the kind of society I want to have, but that's not my priority at the moment. I'd love to connect with folks who want to stay in touch. No pressure, as these past couple years have definitely strained my ability to maintain all the connections I'd like. You're a blessing. Reach out at joel.solowATgmail.com, or my phone number if you've got it. This [below] is a picture of me in a place I love, as happy and serene as I've been. Here's a poem that this moment made me think of:God Says Yes to Me I asked God if it was okay to be melodramaticand she said yesI asked her if it was okay to be short and she said it sure isI asked her if I could wear nail polishor not wear nail polish and she said honeyshe calls me that sometimesshe said you can do just exactlywhat you want toThanks God I saidAnd is it okay if I dont paragraphmy lettersSweetcakes God said who knows where she picked that upwhat I'm telling you isYes Yes Yes- Kaylin Haught
So Zap would be more for individual and group posting while Hubzilla would be more for offering somewhat more advanced "community resources".
