Coping with Long-term Militarization - how?

How have people in other places and times dealt with long-term military-related upheaval? Can you share books or point me to personal experiences? Example: do people just go to work and not discuss it with colleagues to avoid disagreement? Do they go home and play video games? [more inside]

Android Bibliography and Screenshots App

I've been taking screenshots of public social media posts that I'd like to reference for later use. The screenshot is useful for sharing but I also like to track the original URL. Is there any sort of Android app that could track the URL I have for each image, almost like tagging images in an image gallery? The fewer clicks needed to add, and then copy back out, the better.

How far will a house finch fly for a regular meal?

Our backyard feeders attract nearly a dozen house finches. I'm curious about how far away they might be nesting. Assuming that we are the most convenient go-to meal stop, how far away might that be?

Video conferencing with password/PIN protected breakout rooms

I'm looking for almost the opposite of this query - our organisation would like to set up videoconferences where the participants aren't completely free to move between breakout rooms, but can only do so via a password or PIN so as to allow some level of self-management. [more inside]

True Unlimited Data?

Here in Montreal's Old Port, we have copper wire to the nearest transmitter, which means data rates of around 8 Mps. My phone hotspot gets 70 Mps, but I have a data cap of 15 GB/month. There are "unlimited data" plans but they throttle bandwidth after 15 GB/month. Are there true unlimited data plans not visible to the ordinary consumer?

Yoko Ono's Voice Piece for Soprano

Yoko Ono wrote Voice Piece for Soprano in 1961. I've read Grapefruit and am familiar with her instruction pieces. However, I've been trying to find out more specific info about this piece. Most of my search results refer to the more recent MOMA exhibition, but I'm looking for information about her writing it or performing it before then, as well as anything she may have said about it. I am not looking for analysis of it, just history.

Collectible Tarot/Oracle/Something Cards from the 2000s

When I was in middle school (early 2000s) I found these neat cardboard packets of oracle/tarot-esque cards that had maybe 5-7 cards per packet along with a beautiful paper fortune teller/cootie catcher in the same art style. For the sake of scratching a mind itch, I'd love to find a photo or two of these cards. Any takers want to help me search? [more inside]
