I believe windings or coils do have a magnetic orientation, but it is local and not tied or orientated to the earths geomagnetic orientation.

Large electromagnetic waves can overload coils causing them to fry though. A large electromagnetic storm from the sun hitting the earth could cause widespread disruption in this manner and it could take some time to manufacture replacement transformers/coils.

This is something to pay attention to. It's been a long time, but I believe all windings(motor/generator), have geomagnetic orientation. When this baby flips, things might be way different.

I agree, the more data the better. Too bad it's not for the whole world, county by county, that'd be super interesting

Stuff like this should really include places like Puerto Rico and the virgin islands since they are still technically US territory.

It's amazing for the first time in world history a large % of people's body shapes are changing significantly due to an abundance of food.

An abundance of the wrong kind of food. Highly processed, highly addictive, and devoid of nutrition. That is sadly the modern diet. But I think people are beginning to have a better idea about what healthy eating is. Thats why I started s/realfood, so we can have conversations about the how and why of eating for good health.

Hmm https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Europe also features a better map. But it lies a bit more nuanced.

It just looks weird, also a weird year to pick. I mean there weren't crusades.

Interesting info. I know little about this time period, I just found the map and wanted to share it.

I also came across this list of years of expulsions of the jews from various countries, which seems to back up the OP map. If you look there are many listed in Europe in the late 1400s: http://judaism.is/images/jewishexpulsions.jpg?crc=381081817

https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_France

The history of the Jews in France deals with the Jews and Jewish communities in France. There has been a Jewish presence in France since at least the early Middle Ages. France was a center of Jewish learning in the Middle Ages, but persecution increased as the Middle Ages wore on, including multiple expulsions and returns. During French Revolution in the late 18th century, France was the first country in Europe to emancipate its Jewish population. Antisemitism has persisted despite legal equality, as expressed in the Dreyfus affair of the late 19th century.

Pretty sure all the 'banned' countries should have been Green (including the * disclaimer)

Like Spain: https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/History_of_the_Jews_in_Spain

Spanish Jews once constituted one of the largest and most prosperous Jewish communities in the world. Spain was the unquestioned leader of world Jewry: scientific and philological study of the Hebrew Bible began, Hebrew was used for the first time for secular poetry, and for the only time between Biblical times and the origins of the modern state of Israel, a Jew (Samuel ha-Nagid) commanded a Jewish army.[1] This period ended definitively with the anti-Jewish riots of 1391 and Alhambra Decree of 1492, as a result of which the majority of Jews in Spain (between 200,000 and 250,000) converted to Catholicism and those remaining (between 40,000 and 100,000) were forced into exile.

Or is this about the religion, because yeah, Christians (especially Catholics) disliked the religion throughout history [IIRC they made up the Jews eating babies for their evil religion].

So a disclaimer if it's about the people or the religion?

Oh and I'm not saying there wasn't antisemitism.

This honestly kind of blew my mind, I knew it was happening in the US but I didn't realize it was so global. And it's not like the definition of BMI has changed or anything, so it's not a measurement problem.

It's amazing for the first time in world history a large % of people's body shapes are changing significantly due to an abundance of food. Who knows what the implications of this will be.

I bet in 300 years they'll look back on how people treat health now the same way we look back at the idiosyncratic medical ideas of the 1700s. We're clearly missing the forest for the trees in a lot of ways when it comes to medicine. Not to mention the rise of mental health issues due to stress because of work culture and so on.

In a way humanity is advancing too fast to adapt to. But hopefully we're just on the fastest part of the S-curve and culture and technology will eventually settle in to a more sustainable and healthy state.

It's not the site, but the filetype. The site is already allowed. Expando works on this jpg file from reddit's domain: https://saidit.net/s/maps/comments/2q5/spanish_speakers_in_the_americas/

Yes. This will be changing server-side reddit logic which we haven't done thus far. It's hardcoded to only do media previews for certain whitelisted sites like imgur. I imagine we can open it up to support any site. I'll add it to our todo list.

might as well go with one state solution and solve apartheid. as long as we pretend that there are two viable states, we help perpetuate this conflict.

If only Israel could respect the borders laid down, a 2-state solution might actually work, where both countries could co-exist peacefully. But instead Israel keeps taking more and more territory.
