So Hubble was a clone of military satellites we refer to as KEYHOLE. Nobody knew about it, especially NASA.

NASA scientists were having a problem with unintended vibrations messing up their long exposures. It was from the sun heating up the solar panels every time it orbited the earth and causing the stainless steel to flex. Their frustrations ended up getting them invited to a SECRET classified meeting in which they explained the problem and a bunch of people knew about it.

Turns out nobody gave this advice to NASA because it wasn't causing a problem for the military satellites; they don't need long exposures to do surveillance.

(Lockheed Martin apparently was able to help them get the satellite fixed with some new parts)

Striking Workers Are Bringing Back 1970s "Mindfuck" Tactics

vice.com/en_uk/article/kzd7az/

"Deliveroo and UberEats riders, [...] are masters of the mindfuck. Because they’re technically self-employed, the laws on strike action and trade unions don’t apply to them. That means that the slow bureaucracy of postal ballots and turnout thresholds designed to prevent workers from taking collective action goes out the window. Instead, these workers can just do what makes sense to them. The result has been an explosion in militancy, as the platforms try to cut their workers’ already-low wages. Strikes are now breaking out every couple of weeks with little or no prior notice. They’re organised through complex networks of encrypted messenger chats which are completely invisible to platform bosses, meaning that all their standard management techniques need to be rewritten."

Former MEP Julia Reda on France's #copyright transposition: "The audacity with which the proposed French law ignores the safeguards included in the EU copyright directive to protect user rights should be baffling even to the most cynical commentator."
