Today is UNESCO World Radio Day! πŸ“»

diamundialradio.org/

This year's theme is "Dialogue, Tolerance and Peace" and radio stations around the world have been putting together programming on that theme for broadcast today.

Radio is still massively important, especially in developing countries, and even in the West community radio is still an amazing way to bring diverse groups of people together in creative pursuits.

Have a look what your local station is up to: diamundialradio.org/events

Thank you so much, everyone! πŸ’–

I have made it as far as Β£160 and only need another Β£40 to make sure I don't have to worry about bills for the rest of the month and I can concentrate on stuff that matters.

You are all so lovely!

I really don't like doing this, but my university application - coming as it did at the end of the month - sucked the last Β£18 out of my bank account.

I have got nothing until the end of February and I have two job interviews and (hopefully) a university interview to travel to. I need Β£200 to pay outstanding bills and survive the month. Every tiny bit would help.

I am a trans NB person trying to dump old baggage and start again with life now that I know who I am.

A job has come up in the town I want to move to working with GIS software for a local public body. (Trying to be as vague as possible so people don't find the link!)

The job sounds amazing and I love the idea of working with GIS, the whole field is fascinating and I've always been a map-oriented person. The job ad doesn't specify any qualifications, just "experience working with software like QGIS or ArcGIS."

Too late for this job, obvs, but what courses/certs should I look for in GIS?

If I wanted to be a professional technical writer, where would I start? Bearing in mind I have a good command of clear written English, a history of writing docs and doing technical support in past jobs but no portfolio to point to (because the docs were internal).

Would volunteering to help out with a free software project be a good starting point? If you are a technical writer, how did you get started? (No degree, sadly, and getting one is not affordable here right now.)

Can you recommend any Welsh LGBT+ charities to us? We’d like to get in touch, and we’re especially interested in talking to any trans-focused charities.

(We’d also appreciated recommendations of good UK-wide trans-focused charities!)
