🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Trevor made its second landfall at ~1124 UTC+10 (AEST) as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on the Australian Tropical Cyclone Scale and a Category 3 Major Hurricane on the Saffir-Simpson Hurricane Wind scale.

It made landfall ~100km west of the Northern Territory-Queensland border.

🌀 Severe Tropical Cyclone Veronica is actually a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone on ATCS while being a Category 1 Hurricane on SSHWS, this major divide is due to difference on what qualifies as sustained wind between the two scales with ATCS using 10 min average, where SSHWS uses 1 min average. (ATCS defines it right as that is the universal standard put forward by the World Meteorological Organization's Tropical Cyclone Programm)

Veronica is expected to make landfall around 1500 UTC+10 (AEST) between Whim Creek and Port Hedland as a Category 4 Severe Tropical Cyclone ATCS.

evolutionary psychologists aren't ready for the idea that a woman can be incredibly horny and also terrifyingly intelligent

that's why there are only horror movies about that

Just a heads up - keep your eye on your government at the moment, a lot of authoritarians are using the pandemic as cover to introduce laws that further their agenda, Hungary for example is trying to get around gender marker changes by making identifying documents say the AGAB rather than allow people to correct it, Idaho in the US also has or is trying to ban trans youth from participating in sports as their gender, and many countries are pushing for oppressive infrastructure which they've wanted for years but the pandemic has actually got people frightened enough to start buying into it, fascist and authoritarians often use crisis to tighten their grip on the system.

Covid19, Police State, reporting people 

When looking back at queer and lgbt history, it can seem like the heritage of nonbinary people has been mostly erased.

But our kinship with each other as nonbinary people extends beyond the confines of a specific label.

And with that in mind we can see the gifts and influence from people like us extending back for centuries.

too much animal crossing.... first time playing any of the animal crossing games and I love and hate it simultaneously, it is super fun but I can't get it out of my head...

My island is super windy, it is howling much of the night.

I love trans people!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

@tuxom I bet so many do not see the connection between climate change, and future pandemic risk so I guess it is fairly appropriate use of the tag.

While the current SARS-CoV-2/COVID-19 Pandemic probably has little to do with climate change (though is related to environmental issues involving endangered species), a changing climate modifies risk of future pandemic via altering distribution of animals which may bring novel viruses in contact with humans more frequently, another adjacent issue to climate change which is increasing the frequency of zoonotic pathogen spillover events is deforestation.

Covid19, mobile data tracking, UK 

Been doing @RosettaAtHome for over a decade along side other @BOINCNetwork projects Last weekend I switched to Rosetta only to help boost #COVID19 research

"Team Fediverse!" is now in the top 5% of the teams on Rosetta@home!

Rosetta@home is distributed computing project that aids scientist in the research against diseases. They are putting an extra effort against the covid19 outbreak and anyone with a computer can join in.
