My uncle just finished 1.6 kg, 700 pages long dictionary of Northern Sami, a language spoken by around 20,000 speakers.

Sami are an indigenous people who have inhabited large parts of Northern Europe spanning from Russia to Norway for millenniums.

He has dedicated his life to advocate for their rights and preserve their languages and culture. This book is a major contribution in an effort to ensure that this ancient language will be passed on to future generations.

At Amsterdam airport, I just got charged £54, advance payment to a private company for two covid tests. If I had refused to pay, or didn't have a debit card, I wouldn't have been allowed to enter my country. I asked one of the airline officials what happens if someone doesn't have a card, or enough money in their account. The answer: "Hmm… good question."

Tonight, @OrTheWhale , @JikanHorai and I watched Parasite, a film that deserves all the plaudits it's received. Brilliant, compelling and funny, and one of those rare films about class issues. Even better than The Handmaiden.

Many scientific articles are currently published in subscription journals and locked behind paywalls. This model impedes research and diverts public funding to parasitic publishers, while relying almost entirely on the unpaid work of researchers. nofreeviewnoreview.org/
