Almost everyone in #Florida uses #Linux b/c every time there's a hurricane, they're told to "avoid Windows".


If you strip away the noise, the Republican takeover of formerly progressive New College boils down to:

1. Paying themselves excessively high salaries from public money.

2. Purging people who might criticize them.

3. Giving campus restaurant and other business contracts to their friends.

4. Lowering academic standards so they can attract tuition payments from students too gullible to notice they’re just marks for a grift.

Here is our 11:15 PM ET update on #Idalia, and it's rather grim for the Big Bend and Apalachee Bay, where as much as 12 to 16 feet of water may arrive Wed AM. Winds are now 110 mph near the center, and Idalia landfall is expected as a Cat 4. Major hurricane force winds will come close to #tallahassee Lots of details and most questions answered in our post.

shortages (for this and other reasons, of course. See #Florida). No need to wonder why.


Neither our university leaders or our state government are committed to #tenure as a concept. In fact it is hard to call what professors at public universities in #Florida have "tenure." I think one can make a strong argument that with a five-year review, we do not have tenure. Right now our government is on a crusade to recreate the miserable exploitative and extractive of USian history, but when they change their focus to #climate change and protection of the #environment I can hardly imagine my 5 year reviews going smoothly!


Malaria used to be endemic and not uncommon in the United States as far north as Chicago, before being eradicated by large-scale public health campaigns involving the draining of mosquito breeding sites and pesticide spraying.

This resurgence in Florida really wants to happen. The disease and the insect vector are both happy here, and I really wish people appreciated the scale of government involvement required to keep Malaria out.
