Hopefully no jobs will survive and we can ascend past this feudal, wage slave based system. People are too attached to identifying as workers rather than as free human beings.

The UN (United Nations, the government of governments) created the SDGs (Sustainable Development Goals) which caused the WEF (World Economic Forum, the controllers of banks and corporations) to create ESG (Environmental, Social and Governance) which enforces the UN's SDGs on the corporate and finance world. This filters down at the ground level to become DEI (Diversity, Equity and Inclusion) standards mandated by the companies on their employees and products where applicable. This is the reason movies and shows have been heavily race swapping characters and cramming in as many politically correct, feminist, or other so called "woke" narratives as possible. It's why literary agencies now employ "sensitivity readers" to censor books. This is the root cause of the culture war.

As good-hearted as these policies and mandates may seem (and there is some good, getting companies to stop raping the environment, fighting to end poverty, these parts fuck) the social engineering component has proven to be cancerous and deeply divisive.

So yeah Blackrock and companies under their umbrella will call ESG bad for business but they'll still push it because the UN is pushing it and the banks are pushing it, the people who really control the guns and money. So downstream companies will keep pushing it because their funding from the banks and their investment backing from Blackrock, Vanguard and the like depends on it plus there's a generation of newly indoctrinated young adults in their employ fresh out of schools with DEI-laced curriculums to attend to. Meanwhile everyone else is left to look at all our institutions and entertainment going to absolute shit following this top-down mandate from on high that just doesn't jive with real life or common sense.

Looks like the Netlify CEO jumped in and wiped that bill clean, saying it was a mistaken charge for a traffic spike. That has happened to me before when running sites that get a big random surge of visitors. If you're lucky the site just goes down for a little bit. I say lucky because the other option is you get hit with a gigantic bill for traffic over your limit and most times the CEO does not come to your rescue and it's either pay-up or find a new web host. Note this is usually with cheapo non-cloud-base hosts. There are better options that mostly avoid this nightmare but they tend to be on the spendy side.

they tried to rewrite an S tier writing with B tier writers

That's maybe the best description of the whole thing I've heard yet. Do you think it'll get better in season 2? Me I'm thinking it'll take so long to film that the kid playing Aang will almost look like a grown ass man by the time it comes out. Quality wise unless they magically get the original creators back on board it'll be more of the same.

Definitely. Especially when they get one that really starts to crunch theoretical physics.

You on an Apple device with a trackpad? If so I found this: https://discussions.apple.com/thread/252829126?sortBy=best

Me I'd "inspect element" and poke around to see if there's some html or script issue causing a layout error. From your screenshot it looks like there's something inside the rounded corner div containing the video/player that's the problem (if it's a layout issue). That's because the right side has rounded corners while left doesn't (which means the video/player isn't filling it's container div for some reason). Good luck sorting it out.
