Compass the Navigational robot. Unfortunately her sense of direction is a little…poor. She was made to escort sailors in the early 1900s but she led them right into a pirate ship. the pirates then stole her and tried using her to lead them to this treasure. she sent them to this strange island and many of the pirates were doubting her skills as this particular island was not described on the map. luckily for her, she ended up getting the pirates to an even better treasure.
Compass and the pirates became like family eventually until pirates grew out of fashion and they went their separate ways. at one point she even navigated for Amelia Earhart. I wonder whatever happened to her….
(anyways people seemed to like her at spwf, so i figured i’d make an actual post for her)
You looked GORGEOUS at SPWF!!
Not only that, but your automaton skills are excellent! Seriously, you were wonderful! It was so much fun to watch you—
Sounded creepier than I meant it to…
what an good fanbot ;u;
We can neither turn back the clock nor turn off the economic engines. But we also cannot count on the current system of capitalism to right itself. If we are serious about fixing it, we need to create new institutions that can deal with the tensions, contradictions and stark inequities that it brings. Nothing less than a new social compact is required. Just as in the period spanning the New Deal through the post-World War II era, new institutions have to be established and put in place to regulate growth, reduce inequality, generate good family-supporting jobs and rebuild a vibrant middle class.
The outlines of that new social compact are clear. The logic of the new age of capitalism turns on the greater development of human capabilities. Therefore, we must cultivate the full abilities of every single human being, upgrading all work — not just in the high-tech sector but across our factories, offices, and farms. Most of all we must turn the low-wage service jobs at which millions upon millions of Canadian workers toil into more productive, higher-paying, family-supporting jobs, just as we did nearly a century ago for manufacturing work. And there’s more. Workers need portable benefits that they can carry from job to job — and health insurance whether they are employed or not. A stronger safety net is needed for the truly disadvantaged.

The fundamentalist home schooling world also advocates an extraordinarily authoritarian view of the parental role. Corporal punishment is frequently encouraged. The effects are, again, often quite devastating. “People who experienced authoritarian parents tend to turn into adults with poor boundaries,” writes one pseudonymous HA blogger. “It’s an extremely unsatisfying and unsustainable way to live.”
In America, we often take for granted that parents have an absolute right to decide how their children will be educated, but this leads us to overlook the fact that children have rights, too, and that we as a modern society are obligated to make sure that they get an education. Families should be allowed to pursue sensible homeschooling options, but current arrangements have allowed some families to replace education with fundamentalist indoctrination.
As the appearance of HA reminds us, the damage done by this kind of false education falls not just on our society as a whole, but on the children who are pumped through the ideology machine. They are the traumatized veterans of our culture wars. We should listen to their stories, and support them as they find their way forward.

Mallakhamb - The earliest mention of Mallkhamb can be traced back to the 12th Century where it is mentioned in the classic “MANASOLLASA” (1135 A.D.).For about seven centuries after that, the art form remained dormant until it was given a new lease of life by BALAMBHATTADADA DEODHAR, the renowned teacher of PESHWA BAJIRAO-II during the first half of the 19th century.
