Every git pro tip is “here’s how to not lose a day of work because git makes that surprisingly easy to do”
TIL about `git switch`.🤯 Ever did a bunch of changes in a codebase, only to realize that you're working on `master`? `git switch -c <new_branch>` Creates a new branch and brings you local changes over.

The more I look into what went wrong in Russia to lead to the rise of Putin, the more annoyed I become with the West, America, and Bush Sr’s failure to assist Gorbachev in making Glasnost and Perestroika into a success. There should have been a Soviet Marshall plan 🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️🤦🏻♂️
Exited to see a grant here to launch YIMBY Dublin — my favorite movement coming to one of the best cities I’ve visited.
Well, good. People forget what a complete and total shitshow the Iowa caucuses were in 2020, and also how weird it is to have two states as white as Iowa and New Hampshire lead off the nomination process for a party built around a racially-diverse coalition.
SCOOP: National Democratic leaders have drafted a proposal that could significantly reshape the party’s presidential nominating process and put an end to Iowa’s prized first-in-the-nation caucuses. https://t.co/TzuYDj9mbR

We also have to understand that Russia, with a much smaller population than the USA in the 1960s, has suffered 10% of the deaths that the USA suffered in the Vietnam War in .002 percent of the same amount of time as the USA fought the Vietnam War. https://t.co/NLy2SezVqD
If so, and if the usual ratios of wounded/MIA/EPW to KIA apply, then conservatively estimated the Russians have lost ten percent of their initial force. That’s considered heavy casualties, particularly if it falls disproportionately on some specialties (e.g. dismounted infantry) https://t.co/7uW1PyBiol

I really don't like Erdogan, but he's not wrong here.
⚡️ Erdogan: West could have stopped Russia in 2014. Turkish President Recep Tayyip Erdogan said that the insufficient response from the West to the Russian invasion of Crimea in 2014 led to Russia’s current full-scale war.

POV you’re so suspicious of the official government narrative that you love the official narrative of the Russian government.
It's interesting seeing this take from Heather Adkins, a Senior Director at Google responsible for many teams — including Insider Risk, which in the last couple years has done things such as "dig through the access logs of labor organizers to provide a pretext for firing them".
If true, then appears we're on the "Become paranoid about internal enemies and eliminate them using loyal independent security forces" stage of the Dictator's Playbook. https://t.co/nPDJXdOU68
