I am going to keep posting about this until we get to 100,000 signatures.

Yes, it's another one of these damned post from that obsessed woman, I am sorry.

As I write there are 89,316 signatures. The linear trend line of signatures from Tuesday 31 January gives an equation of
y = 861.45x + 82873.
That means the date for hitting 100,000 votes has drifted out by another day to Saturday 18 February. I know we can do better than this. The last we thing we want is the petition to remove LGBT content from the curriculum to be debated and our opinion not to be heard.

Please sign if you are in the UK and please boost if you are not.

May I take this opportunity to thank each and everyone of the 1,260 people that have boosted this post so far. 💖 💖

Striking university staff have met up with striking teachers in the city centre. The teachers have better musicians and banners than us! #ucurising

listening to newsies on my way to stand with the picket lines :blobcatknife:

I'm striking today as part of #UCURising because our pensions have been unfairly cut, pay hasn't kept up with inflation, and to fight casualisation and discrimination.
My wife is also on strike as an #NEU teacher.
And solidarity with the nurses, train drivers, posties, amazon workers(!) and everyone else currently in dispute.

This isn't OK!

I'm laughing as I think of the tories coming into power in 2010 talking about Broken Britain. I didn't realise it was an ambition rather than a complaint!

Today, university staff go on strike

We are striking for decent pay, pensions and secure employment

We are striking for students

We are striking for the future of higher education

Please boost if you back us #ucuRISING

Regretfully, the petition to remove #LGBT content from the #UK curriculum has 197,100 signatures.

The counter petition asking for that content to remain, is rapidly gaining ground. It now has 78,919 signatures!

Pls sign the counter petition if able. British citizens & UK residents have the right to sign. Pls boost otherwise!

Consumer Reports (CR) has released a mobile app (iOS, Android on the way) that shows what data companies collect about you, then allows you to have CR get the data deleted:

Essentially, CR will act as the data ombudsman for anyone who asks them to. I love it.

CR is a non-profit that accepts no advertising or corporate sponsorship, and they have a great reputation. It's a superb choice to take on the data capitalists.

US-only (don't @ me).

one of the mysteries of science is that dualizing a space trickster god that likes annoying Jean-Luc Picard, you get a proof assistant. amazing but true!

The International Center for Mathematical Sciences #ICMS in Edinburgh just launched its "Mathematics for Humanity" initiative with a call for research activity proposals (ranging from small collaborations to courses, workshops and conferences) aimed at using mathematics to contributing to the betterment of humanity. (I have agreed to join the scientific board, along with fellow Mathstodon resident @johncarlosbaez .)
