According to the great majority of articles, AV1 have slightly better video quality, with enormous bandwidth savings (45% savings compared to HEVC)

Idk what's happened but the last few matches I just can't ping items in deathboxes. It's only just started happening the last 4 matches but it's really annoying cos it literally isn't working. I can ping when I'm out of deathboxes but I can't ping anything that's inside a deathbox. Is this a new bug, or have I accidentally turned off a setting or something?

2021.12.08 04:13 nice_meme_buddy Student Debt Strike?

As a student in the U.S., I, like many people have had a to take out loans to help pay my way through school. In January, the payments for those loans will start to come due as the freeze on student loan payments in the U.S. come to an end. So, out of curiosity, would a debt strike be a possible way to put pressures on the system for loan forgiveness? The logistics of such a strike seem simple enough: just don’t pay. That being said, if there is anyone who may have more information and would be better prepared to tackle such a proposal, it may be a worthwhile avenue for action. I can’t claim to have many answers for this, just figured it couldn’t hurt to try to start a conversation on the matter.
