The battery has "Pb" written on it, so I assume it's lead battery.

Texas megachurch pastor Robert Morris, who Donald Trump once named as a spiritual adviser to his administration, announced he was stepping down from Gateway Church amid allegations he molested a 12-year-old girl in the 1980s. 

The resignation comes days after Morris, 62, seemingly admitted to molesting the girl in a statement to The Christian Post. In that statement, he conceded that he engaged in “inappropriate sexual behavior” with a “young lady” when he was already married with a child in his early 20s.

Morris didn’t mention the girl’s age—but his alleged victim, Cindy Clemishire, told the religious watchdog blog The Wartburg Watch on Friday that she was only 12 when she was first sexually abused by Morris on Christmas Day in 1982. She claimed that he invited her into the room he was staying in at her family home during a visit, and touched her inappropriately on her breasts and “under her panties.”

More than 1,000 people died during this year’s Hajj pilgrimage in Saudi Arabiaas the faithful faced extreme high temperatures at Islamic holy sites in the desert kingdom, officials said Sunday.

More than half of the fatalities were people from Egypt, according to two officials in Cairo. Egypt revoked the licenses of 16 travel agencies that helped unauthorized pilgrims travel to Saudi Arabia, authorities said.

Saudi Arabia has not commented on the deaths during the pilgrimage, which is required of every able Muslim once in their life.

Police said 34 new Tesla Cybertrucks were damaged. The owner parked the exotic cars in a parking lot in Fort Lauderdale. 

In an apparent vendetta against Elon Musk, a vandal, or vandals spray-painted an expletive and his name — “F--- Elon” — on the ostentatious electric trucks starting at over $80,000 each. 

“It was just one row and then it was a second row, and then a third row and a fourth row,” Adam Docktor, who works nearby, said.

From the construction industry to the tourism sector, Greek employers cannot find the staff they need. The government's solution: longer working hours. A new law enables employers to implement a six-day work week

After 15 years of recession and austerity and three rescue packages that came with tough conditions attached, labor in Greece is no longer strictly regulated.

Collective agreements have been frozen for years, and in many businesses, staff work on the basis of individual employment contracts.

While the 40-hour work week is still officially in place, employers are permitted to require staff to work up to two unpaid hours per day for a limited period in return for more free time.

In theory, this additional work is voluntary. In reality, however, workers in many businesses and workplaces are forced to work longer hours without receiving any form of compensation.

The authorities — which are themselves short-staffed — rarely carry out checks to make sure that labor law is being observed. Making sure that the authorities can do such monitoring tasks effectively is not a priority for the conservative government of Prime Minister Kyriakos Mitsotakis.

But even before the law on the six-day work week comes into force on July 1, Greek workers work longer hours than any other workforce in Europe. With an average 41 hours per week, they work more than all other EU citizens, according to the EU's statistics agency, Eurostat. What's more, the pay they get for these long hours is low by European standards.

With a minimum monthly wage of €830($887), Greece ranks 15th in the EU in this respect. In terms of purchasing power, it ranks second last in Europe.

Does anyone have any recommendations for alternate keyboard apps on iOS that don’t censor my less-than-polite speech? Having to type certain words out letter by letter is annoying enough since swipe texting won’t spell them out. And lately it seems like even after I type that stuff out, autocorrect will still go back and change those words. Tired of my phone trying to play Puritan Nanny.

Tried just googling the question, but the only results I get are how to add curse words to the text replacement list, and I’d rather not have to go program in every individual curse word.

The former president used his first rally in the city of brotherly love to tie violent crime with illegal immigration, despite the evidence against this

Crooked Joe or Sleepy Joe? Donald Trump wanted to know which nickname his supporters prefer. “That’s the first time Sleepy Joe has ever beaten Crooked Joe!” he said with surprise, after asking the crowd to make noise for each contender.

That, however, is not the branding exercise the former US president cares about most right now. On Saturday night he wanted his followers to go home with three words: Biden. Migrant. Crime.

A month after his audacious campaign stop in the Bronx, New York, Trump held his first ever campaign rally in Philadelphia, the birthplace of American democracy and another Democratic stronghold where Joe Biden won 81.4% of the vote in 2020.

Welcome

This is a Federated Lemmy instance that focuses on West Virginia and other topics of interest. Members are allowed and encouraged to create and grow communities.

Montani Semper Liberi

Please be good to each other.


Getting Started

Explore the communities already loaded into this instance. If you don't see what you like, try searching for a community in the Lemmy Community Browser. Once you find something that interests you, copy/paste the community link into the Search page, wait for it to pull in, and then subscribe.

Instance Rules

Unless otherwise stated, these rules apply to both local accounts and those interacting from federated instances.

#0 Don't Be a BuzzkillWe run reports and can detect mass downvoters, both local and federated, and we do ban them. If everything here displeases you, then maybe go be miserable somewhere else.

People enjoy different things, and this instance is subscribed to a variety of topics. If you don't like something, move on, block the user/community, or subscribe to things you DO like - don't browse "all" just to jump in the comments to shit all over others.

#1 Be CivilYou should absolutely not consider this community a "bastion of free speech" in any way, shape or form. Please read our Free Speech Policy for further details.

Be here because you want to be here. This is not a refuge for people who have been banned from other social sites. If you're here because you've been banned elsewhere, you'll definitely get banned here too - probably faster.

There is a zero tolerance policy in place for hate speech, bigotry, racism, sexism, homo/trans-phobia, and any other uncivil behavior.

Usernames/display names containing racist or any other inappropriate slurs will not be approved, and any interacting from remote instances will be banned without warning.

Definitions of Free Speech:

  • Free speech: Done in good faith. "I can speak my mind without fear of being arrested"
  • "Freeze peach": Done in bad faith. "I can say the worst things imaginable without consequences because 'free speech, y'all'"

We try our best to respect the right to free expression (within the bounds of civility), but "freeze peach" will not be tolerated.

#2 Bot PolicyAfter running Lemmy for a few months and observing the various bots that have sprung up and how chatty and annoying they are, the DubVee bot policy has been updated. In short, no bots are allowed unless explicitly approved in advance by a site administrator.

Approved bots must flag themselves as a bot and must have their operator's contact info in their bio. Any/all unauthorized bots or bots that do not identify themselves and their operator will receive a permanent ban; no exceptions. Bots interacting from remote instances will be banned as well if they are annoying.

If you encounter an annoying bot, please report it for evaluation.

#3 ChatGPT and AI-Generated ContentI do not care what you asked ChatGPT or asked an "AI" to generate for you, and I will not waste resources on my systems hosting it. AI generated drivel will be removed with prejudice and repeat offenders banned.

#4 NSFW and Controversial ContentIn short: Try to keep posts and comments rated R at most, preferably PG-13 or lower.

I don't give a fuck about language; just don't be an asshole. It's also encouraged to be creative with your profanity if you choose to swear. If in doubt, look to the Scots for inspiration.

Pornography is strictly prohibited. Any content posted that is deemed pornographic will be removed and the account banned.

#5 No Advertising/Self-PromotionAccounts are prohibited from advertising products or services. There's a big difference between posting about a cool project you've been working on/found and shilling for a product/company that will be enforced on a know-it-when-I-see-it basis.

#6 Mis-/Disinformation PolicyPosts should not deliberately contain or spread disinformation / misinformation. Posts / comments determined to fit that criteria will be removed. This includes any and all posts from sources MBFC deems low credibility regardless of community, blogs presented as news, or any other non-news source presented as a news article.

2024/01/31 Update: All links to news articles must be to the original source. Link shorteners, archive links, etc are prohibited. If you wish to provide such a link, it must be added as an addendum to the post in the body. The post's URL must be to the original source. This will be enforced for both posts to local communities as well as posts from federated ones.

There will be absolutely no exceptions. to this rule.

#7 Agendas, Astroturfing, and BrigadingWe do not allow users to push agendas outside of dedicated communities; that's not what we're here for. This is a little difficult to codify, but basically if you want to push a stance on something, keep it to a community dedicated to that topic. Local users are free to create and grow a community for this purpose as long as it adheres to the DubVee instance rules.

For example, if you don't like cars, keep your anti-car sentiment to appropriate communities such as /c/fuckcars rather than dredging up every anti-car post you can find and spreading those across news and other communities. Similarly, don't jump into the comments of unrelated communities to push your anti-car stance.

This rule sounds more draconian than it is, but the purpose of it is to discourage brigading and keep communities civil.

Accounts should not engage in astroturfing or sock-puppeting.
