2023.06.10 04:47 Takksuru What languages are associated with certain sciences?

Just as the title says: What languages are associated with certain sciences? I want to figure out if any of the languages I'm learning could help me understand the concepts without having to translate the publication into English.
Of course, English will dominate a good amount of these, but since I speak it natively, free to add a runner-up language(s)!
Examples of an answer that would help me:
  1. Since Russia and the US manage the ISS, astronauts have to learn (at least) intermediate level Russian and English. Other languages like German or French may be used but are less common in written publications regarding aerospace.
  2. Since Germany and France toyed with the concept of psychology in 19th and 20th century, you might be able to find some of those works in their native language. The concepts may be outdated or disproven, but this could help you research about history and anthropology.

2023.06.10 04:13 Noxibot55 How to deliver a historical report

This is going to be a tricky one to answer as I'm not sire how to even ask this question. But long story short, I did some work experience with the local online news during this time I wrote a magazine piece about the small village I live in which was read by basically everyone in my local area and beyond. In light of this a few of the older local men, have asked me to do a job for them. This job involves providing a more in depth historical look into my town, so basically from the early 20th century to now. I have gathered interviews and heaps of old photos and news papers dating back to the 1930s so I have everything I need. Where I'm stuck is how do I write this? I don't know whether I write this as a small story or create almost a whole website that acts as a historical chronicle of sorts. Ant feedback or ideas would be appreciated, I'm also stuck on what to do once I finish it, like how to get people to see it.
(For a bit more context the village has about 100 residence and I'm also only 16 so my experience is limited)

2023.06.10 03:48 D12sAreUnderrated [Online][Other][CDT][LGBTQ+ friendly][18+] Electric Bastionland one-shot

The electric hub of mankind. The only city that matters. Everything is here, everything is complicated, and everything is shared. Perpetually stuck in an era of carriages and gothic street lamps, yet entering a time of great innovation and discovery and electrically-charged technology... and poverty. You have a Failed Career. You have a colossal debt. Treasure is your only hope.
Hello everyone. Me (the GM) and three players are looking for 1 more player to join us for an Electric Bastionland one-shot, Sunday June 11th, from 8pm to 12am CDT. I will run it through Discord vc, character sheets on Google Sheets, and maps on Owlbear Rodeo. We will also use safety tools to make sure it's a fun one-shot!
Electric Bastionland is a rules-lite d20 system that focuses on high risk and high octane adventures. Dice rolls are only made to avoid a risky or uncertain outcome, or if you're in combat. The setting is a turn-of-the-20th-century city with people and mockeries (muppet-people) and aliens and borgs and all kinds of strange citizens.

2023.06.10 03:27 HerrBuxton 22 (soon to be 23)M from Northern USA looking for a pen pal or two!

Hello! I’m looking for a pen pal or two over snail mail. I’m a history major, part time in university and I mainly study German history (mainly late 19th and early 20th century) and culture. I speak French and English really well, and I’m in the process of learning German. I can read Ukrainian phonetically but I’m barely conversational in it, as my mother is from former SSR Ukraine. Other interests include: anything post-war 1940s America; fountain pens; typewriters; science fiction, comedy, and action films/shows/books; vinyl. I have some other interests, too, but those are my main ones. I do occasionally play a video game, but not terribly often. Maybe we could first DM over Reddit to get to know one another a little bit before becoming pen pals?

2023.06.10 02:22 Different-Gas5704 Is Pat Robertson responsible for the decline of American Christianity?

The question is a bit of a hyperbole (Jerry Falwell was just as important, if not more so), but the recent death of Pat Robertson is what brought the idea to my mind.
According to all indicators, the number of Americans self-identifying Christians is rapidly declining. While the numbers have continued to decline steadily since then, the numbers first began to decrease in the mid-to-late 1970s (The 700 Club entered national syndication in 1974). This was shortly after evangelical Christianity overtook Mainline Protestantism in terms of numbers.
There have always been conservative strands of Christianity in America, of course, but until the late 20th century many of the most prominent Christian voices in the U.S. fell on the progressive end of the spectrum. They were some of the key figures in the abolitionist movement (the Quakers were ardent abolitionists nearly a century before the Constitution was ratified), the women's suffrage movement, the civil rights movements, etc.
Clearly evangelicalism was (and remains) attractive to a large number of people, but as it's key figures began self-promoting by starting media empires, colleges and political committees - the marriage of evangelical Christianity and the GOP being solidified when Robertson ran for President in 1988 - and the Mainline denominations lacked the resources or will to compete with them, they became the face of Christianity for a lot of people. And for every person they managed to convert, hundreds caught a few minutes of their TV shows or came across one of their pamphlets in a bathroom stall and decided that they wanted nothing to do with them or their religion.
The media hasn't helped in this regard. The headlines announcing Robertson's death have referred to him as a "minister" or "televangelist," while media coverage of figures like Jesse Jackson or Al Sharpton usually finds them relegated to the role of "activists." It seems like Falwell and Robertson's goal of making Christianity synonymous with right-wing politics was a success and attendance at most churches seems to be suffering as a result.
So how much of a role do you think Robertson and his ilk have played in the decline of Christianity in this country?

shopping haul
I did a big closet clean out (heck yeah, got rid of a bunch of jeans that no longer fit and I didn't feel horrible about weight gain) and decided to buy a few clohes. I'm in my late 20s and I'm going for a super chill, genderqueer and lowkey luxurious (esp trying to wear mostly non-synthetic fabrics). Think 20th century bi writer. I'm still semi-closeted so I'm playing it safe. I don't want to look masculine enough that most people will know I'm not cis, but I want to look un-femenine enough that queer people can tell and cishet people will suspect.
This is from H&M (don't judge me, I'm broke). Bought a few sports bras because I'm still scared of binders but still want to keep my chest flat for some shirts, and threw in a few pants to make up for the jeans I got rid off. I'm not 100% sure about the beige one though. I have big hips/butt and I'm not sure I can pull it off, but I love the wide legs. I opted out for some short-sleeved linen men's shirts that I loved, but not sure I feel confident enough to pull off and I would've gone overbudget anyways, maybe later. Any tips on styling welcome.

2023.06.09 23:46 Prudent_Bug_1350 Tailism

Image Transcription: Reddit Comments
*User A *
I did not enjoy or agree with the video. Both of the key questions, the family and immigration, that the author raises are treated in a superficial manner. It broadly comes down to obvious points (a) the development of the nuclear family was structured around private property; (b) you shouldn't blame immigrants. However, as to what a socialist movement should be arguing for in 2023, it is a bit more difficult. I think the 'abolish the family' discourse is hugely unhelpful, as neoliberalism is already abolishing the family - people are having fewer children, long-term relationships and sex. This is not a good thing, as Adorno realised already mid-20th century - for the average working class person, the family is one of the only broadly non-capitalist spaces in their life. Would this change with a socialist revolution? Probably but that does not mean it is wise for the left to hold an anti-family position.
As to immigration, it is difficult because the obvious and correct answer (unionise migrant workers) has not worked. This does not mean that it is acceptable for anyone on the left to pursue any anti-migrant activities but it does mean that just shouting 'open borders' is probably counter-productive. Immigration does bring down wages (as Marx also said..) and it is horribly managed by the husks that are neoliberal states, further breeding far-right reaction. The mission of any left government should be to better manage migration, create easier access to citizenship and jobs, and to promote trade unions. That's about as close as we can get to any coherent strategy.
Most fundamentally, the key error of the video is assuming that a mechanistic and crude 'scientific socialism' has all the answers. This is like going back to early Kautsky who was in denial about a revolution not having taken place because the theory says it should have. Anyway, just a couple of thoughts - I appreciate the initiative of the creator but I was not too keen on the content.
User B replying to User A
What you are proposing is really just tailing the most reactionary elements of the working class under a "left wing" guise, since it is up to the Communists to put forward the correct line even if it is unpopular, it was unpopular two decades ago to stand for lgbtq equality, it is still unpopular to stand for trans equality, as Marxists, we are the vanguard of the masses, not simply lagging behind them and taking up the worst politics of the reactionaries, or even keeping mum and tacitly allowing for reactionary views to go unchallenged.
And the same with Immigration, simply blaming the immigrants for not joining useless yellow unions is no real solution to anything, it isn't even a solution to "native" workers, since unions are just there to represent the Union Leadership, who are, by and large, bought out. This has historically been the case, and the shameful support the American Union threw behind the Chinese Exclusion Act shows this to be the case. The real answer is of course revolution and the destruction of the capitalist imperialist system which America is a head of, and the creation of a genuine Worker's State, which definitely will welcome all workers with open arms, as the USSR did, and for which such "light" bigotry that you have displayed will have no place.
Finally, the error you are making is that your own view and analysis aren't grounded in revolutionary politics and a material analysis, but on your own prejudices based on "pragmatism", i.e. that you are denying the possibility of revolutionary change, and hence need to give all these reactionary concession to the right. Rather than they being like Kautsky, you are more like most of the Second International following the most reactionary "patriotic" element and throwing their full support behind the imperialist war (and not even Kautsky, since he, in an extremely tepid way, at least opposed the first world war and voted against War credit)
User A replying to User B
Okay, taking points in turn. Thank you for an extended reply:
(1) I agree that sometimes doing the right thing is unpopular. However, I disagree with vanguard of the masses bit, maybe a self-proclaimed vanguard but there is no serious communist movement in the Western world - either vanguardist or otherwise. LGBT rights definitely benefitted from the support of socialists (see Lesbians and Gays Support the Miners in the UK) but they were not won by any concentrated communist action - it was a liberal coalition and now the cause has been taken up by the establishment forces. This battle is broadly won, at least for now.
(2) I don't think trade unions are the only socialist institutions that matter but at this time, they are the key institution. I think you're American, so you might have a slightly different perspective on the history of unions from a European. I've never blamed migrants for not joining unions.. It is incredibly dangerous for these individuals and they face significant level of structural violence in order to stop them from joining. That said, one of the left's key focus should be to organise migrant workers - I think a trade union is more fitting than a Marxist vanguard party, as again, except for Trotskyist groups or niche political parties, the left does not really have any proper institutions in the Anglo world (I'm not going to comment on DSA, as I don't know about it enough).
(3) Finally, I think you're replicating the worst of 20th century communist culture by just throwing slogans around. I'm not reactionary in any serious sense - I just don't think we should open all borders tomorrow or aim to abolish the family under neoliberalism. Both of these views are compatible with anti-racist and feminist perspectives. As to revolutionary politics - it is deeply saddening that the lesson many people have learned from Lenin is that you need to shout your slogans as loudly as possibly and then expect the people to follow. They won't. There is no revolutionary potential in the short-term in the Western world and I would challenge you to tell me where it could come from. Labour is weak and disorganised. This needs to be rebuilt before any sustained challenge against capital will be possible. Vivek Chibber's latest book 'The Class Matrix' is an interesting contribution toward the question 'how'.

(1) The question is whether socialists should take unpopular opinions or not, even if it is to their (electoral) detriment, such as one of our oldest platform, "abolish the family". I use the example of lgbtq+ rights, but Socialists have always been for their rights, even in the 1898, when Socialists, like August Babel, fought to decriminalize homosexuality.
(2) European Unions are just as much a tool of the union bosses as American ones, and taking an anti-migrant stance on account of their "lowering wages" has, even by the limited scope of bourgeois parliamentarianism, been a losing strategy. Why is the PCF, once the most popular Communist Party in the West, failing to find any support amongst the migrant population- people remember! And they remember Georges Marchais and all the PCF affiliated union shooting up xenophobia throughout the 80s in order get that temporary electoral high.
(3) Your condensation aside, the history of socialism throughout history is not a vindication of your reactionary (and anti-Marxist) tailing, but rather that it is up to the socialist to be the vanguard of the masses. I think you ought to reread Lenin rather than go to Vivek Chibber (an intellectual only recruited since he can provide some sort of intellectual heft to the intellectually bankrupt position of "class reductionism" that the Bernie People were desperately hungry for), since he is one for "sloganeering" as you say, since he was the one that created the term "vanguard party" precisely for this type of organization. Yes, the left is "weak and disorganized", but most communist party starts off small. The Communist Party of China started off with 20 members in 1921 in a country where everything is "weak and disorganized", and kicked out the Japanese and the American lackeys by 1949.

2023.06.09 22:36 Fault_Spirited What if the world was behind 100 years

So. basically instead of it being 2023 its now 1923, meaning that meaning that world war 1 and 2 happend in 1814 and 1845 were germany and france start both of the war due to their empires and instead of the vietnam war introducing the helicopter the gattling gun would be introduced. And the biggest war in the 20th century would be the great war of the middle east. And that main of the games ans show wouldve been converted into films or books

2023.06.09 21:32 TheCelloPlayer Senior Recital Suggestions?

I’m in university and scheduled to give my senior recital next year. I have several pieces picked out and practiced already, but I wanted opinions on if there are better alternatives and/or how I should program them. Here’s what I’m thinking so far:
-Schumann’s Adagio and Allegro -Bach’s 5th suite prelude -20th century piece (I have the 1st movement of Shostakovich’s sonata prepared from a couple years ago, but I kind of wanted to learn something else.) -Dvorak’s concerto 1st movement -Possible encore: ThePianoGuys The Mission/How Great Thou Art (They’re the reason I started cello! I thought it would be nice for that reason, as well as because I’d play it with my mother. We’ve played some of their stuff together over the years, and she’ll be in town at the time.)
I’m open to any suggestions! The requirements are that it takes 50-60 minutes and everything has to be memorized. I’ll also be preparing for graduate school and would love to practice performing the pieces I could use for that too. (I’ll be doing auditions, not this next year, but the year after).
