This morning I quickly noted down a few points from the panel discussion on "#FreeSoftware development for the #PublicAdministration" including a few thoughts on a technological distribution of powers for a 21st century #democracy https://k7r.eu/panel-free-software-development-for-the-public-administration/ #PMPC
The #GreatGreenWall aims to restore 100 million hectares of currently degraded land, sequester 250 million tonnes of carbon and create 10 million jobs in rural areas. (by 2030)
👉 46% of African land is degraded, jeopardizing the livelihoods of nearly two-thirds of the Continent’s population.
👉 20 million people in the Horn of Africa in 2017 declared on the verge of starvation following severe drought and food crises.
👉 Millions are expected to migrate from degraded parts of Africa in the next two decades
👉 100 million population of the Sahel is expected to grow to 340 million by 2050
👉 200 million of the 375 million young people entering the job market over the next 15 years will be living in rural areas.
Results so far:

🌵 15 million hectare of degraded land were restored in Ethiopia; 5 million in Nigeria
🌳 5 million hectares of land have been restored in Niger, delivering 500.000 tonnes of grain per year. enough to feed 2.5 million people

I just remembered one time my "smartphone" actually empowered me.
When we were house shopping several years ago I got annoyed at having to do various calculations for monthly debt load, mortgage principal, etc.
At the time I was deep into Ruby programming and I was able to run Ruby on my phone and had written several functions to do several of these calculations for me.
So when we saw a house, I'd plug in values from the realtor sheet and get the info I wanted.
Many scripts I've written run stable in production. Services are running because I have read texts and docs, installed servers and maintained software and hardware but I still feel I'm not an expert at anything.
Maybe because the more I know about a subject, the more I realise how much more I could know. And that will always be more than I already know.
We don't look back at how much we've already learned, but look forward at how big the mountain still is and always will be.

Looking for work
I'm a UI/UX designer and I'm really in need of a job, someone suggested I post something about it here, so I'm doing it.
I can also do general graphic design, like logos and whatnot, but I do specialize in UI and UX.
I have a portfolio at https://hazelnot.xyz and I'd really appreciate if someone could help me with this, since I don't really have an income at the moment and I'm dependent on my parents who are... not great.

"Musique automatique" by "Stereo Total" was my album. I loved the record so much. The songs are in French and German and especially the French songs opened my eyes why it was not wrong to struggle through French lessons in school.😜 😇
