Giant, free index to world's research papers released online

In a project that could unlock the world’s research papers for easier computerized analysis, an American technologist has released online a gigantic index of the words and short phrases contained in more than 100 million journal articles — including many paywalled papers.

The catalogue, which was released on 7 October and is free to use, holds tables of more than 355 billion words and sentence fragments listed next to the articles in which they appear.

trans women question about shaving 

@baronnarcveldt wei have quite light arm hair and it's never really bothered muis. Laser was painful and slow enough that for anything other than the face I want to avoid it. Used to shave/pluck around nipples and particularly thick hairs under the navel but honestly they've mostly stopped bothering me lately.
