Things I often tell people about applying to EA Funds I wrote this post quickly, drawing on some emails/messages I’d previously sent. You can use the headings to work out which section (if any) are relevant to you. If people find this useful, maybe I’ll put more time into structuring and editing it.
Epistemic status: I’m a guest manager on the EA Infrastructure Fund, I think what I say here mostly applies to the Long-Term Future Fund and maybe the Animal Welfare Fund, and I think other fund managers would mostly agree with what I say here. But I could be wrong, I haven’t properly run this doc by other EA Funds people, and this definitely is not an official EA Funds post.

[Podcast] How to talk about effective altruism and giving effectively “One of the best ways to double our impact is actually to get another person involved. When you go into those conversations with the plan to change someone's mind, it rarely ever does actually result in the other person changing their minds. People are more likely to do things and do them more often if they choose to do it. That role of autonomy is one of the major points that we make in this guide.”
In this episode of the Giving What We Can podcast we are joined by Geetanjali Basarkod, a postdoctoral research fellow at the Institute for Positive Psychology and Education in Sydney. Her research explores behavioural psychology and societal determinants of wellbeing and functioning. Geet also volunteers with Giving What We can. Recently, Geet helped update our guide to talking about effective altruism, effective giving, and Giving What We Can.

[Creative Writing Context][Fiction] The Reaper of People You Do Not Know The adventurer touched a rune etched into the wall. Red light burst forth, illuminating the dark dungeon before coalescing into the shape of a hooded man with a scythe resting on his shoulder.
“Why have you called upon my conscious form? Foolish—”
Having explored enough dungeons to know villainous monologues were usually a waste of time, the adventurer swung at the hooded figure with his sword—but his strike passed right through his target.
“Naive mortal, how dare you disturb my monologue? Know that I am not so easy to kill.”

Remove An Omnivore's Statue? Debate Ensues Over The Legacy Of Factory Farming February 21st, 2167The New York Daily
There have been cries from locals in Healy, New York, about taking down the statue of Jerry Whittaker. Whittaker was renowned in his time for his breakthroughs in the field of oncology, with his discoveries saving an estimated five million lives.
For the past one hundred and thirty years, he has been the poster child of his hometown: Healy, New York. After his death in 2073, a statue was erected in his honor; however, at a recent town hall meeting Friday, his legacy has come into question.

Through the Wilderness--Creative Writing Contest
Like many outdoor enthusiasts, I spent a great deal of time in the woods this past summer. Unlike the majority of them, I spent my time in wildland that shared a common feature, not meandering rivers or agate deposits, but that they were engulfed in flames.
The summer of 2021 was my first year as a wildland firefighter. About to finish my undergraduate studies with degrees in German and the ever enigmatic “Arts and Letters,” I had managed to delude myself into thinking that my erudition on the Grimm Brothers’ fairy tales would make me an asset in fighting the megafires that have been ravaging the Western United States with increasing intensity since the early 20th century. The impetus to fight fires had begun the summer before, in 2020, when a rare wind event caused the smoke from fires in three states to converge and make the sky above my backyard in Portland, Oregon roil with orange and greenish clouds for over a week. This recognition that the problem was at my back door, combined with my love of the wilderness and near masochistic tolerance for physical exertion, was enough to convince me to fight fires the following summer. If nothing else, I was driven by a desire to save some acreage of the beautiful temperate rainforest that blankets the Pacific Northwest so that my future children might one day see it.

EA for Jews: Launch and Call for Volunteers Overview: Announcing the launch of EA for Jews
We’re excited to announce the launch of a new EA outreach and community group: EA for Jews. EA for Jews’ mission is (1) to share EA ideas with Jews (broadly defined to include religious as well as secular Jews) and (2) to build a community of Jews interested in EA.
Join our Facebook group here and learn more through our website here.
We are currently launching within the EA community to grow the group and will then reach out more widely to Jewish communities worldwide. We are keen to find people who want to get involved in any way, big or small, from helping us run the organisation to speaking at your local synagogue or youth group about EA. If you’re interested in getting involved or would like to learn more, please fill out the form here and contact us if you have any questions!

APPG for Future Generations Impact Report 2020 - 2021 I have copied below the impact report for the All-Party Parliamentary Group (APPG) for Future Generations secretariat. The APPG for Future Generations has in part been funded by this community, via the Long-Term Future Fund, so we felt it would be appropriate to share here the story of what has happened with that funding.
When I started on this project just over 2.5 years ago I was expecting any impact reports in our first few years to say something like: “Well people are talking about our ideas more but nothing significant has changed yet because policy change is difficult and slow – but that’s OK let's give it time.” This is not what has happened. I am proud and also somewhat surprised to be writing that the APPG, working through UK Parliamentarians, appears to be consistently having identifiable impacts on UK policy in ways that we believe will positively affect the world for future generations. Full details below.

X-Risk, Anthropics, & Peter Thiel's Investment Thesis This story is cross-posted from my blog, jacksonw.xyz.
Summary: I analyze an essay by Peter Thiel, in which he explains:
I then add my own musings about how these ideas might usefully connect with the goals of longtermist Effective Altruism.
Effective altruists have discussed whether EA values and beliefs should affect how we invest the wealth that we eventually plan to donate:
I consider myself reasonably savvy about financial topics, but I would be in way over my head if I tried to synthesize all these competing claims and produce the One True EA Portfolio Theory.

We face significant X-risk. | Anthropic logic means markets ignore the risk. | What are markets ignoring? Not just X-risk, but anything that ends capitalism. | What are markets hoping for? | Financial history as a series of connected bubbles all asking the fundamental question of capitalist civilization's viability. | Use the "Optimistic Thought Experiment" to invest in a smarter way than just ignoring the risks. | Can we somehow use market signals to measure the hidden X-risk? | Should Thiel's strategy be modified for the unique needs of EA?
[Job – Academia] Assistant Professor (Philosophy/Ethics) at Lingnan University (Hong Kong) Dear All,
The Department of Philosophy at Lingnan University is still looking for strong candidates for a tenure-track position in ethics (see below for details).

Also, please notice that the department will launch a new research centre, the Hong Kong Catastrophic Risk Centre (or HKCRC), in the first quarter of 2022.
Hard deadline for applications: 1 Dec 2021.

List of EA funding opportunities This is a quickly written post listing opportunities for people to apply for funding from funders that are part of the EA community.
I'm probably forgetting some opportunities relevant to longtermist and EA movement building work, and many opportunities relevant to other cause areas. Please comment if you know of things I’m missing!
Maybe a list like this already exists; if so, please comment to mention it! Two somewhat similar things are the 80,000 Hours job board and Effective Thesis’s list of funding opportunities.

2021.10.27 03:59 yogamama9 Would you pick your husband up from jail?
I have been married to my husband for 8 years and we have 3 kids. He is a successful lawyer. Our oldest is almost 6 and our youngest is 4 months old. Since our oldest was born, my husband has frequently ghosted me, and not come home for dinner or bedtime, to go out drinking. Yesterday was one of those days. Tuesday night. All 3 kids are sick and he was a no-show. I was depending on him to help since it’s been rough with sick kids. I got one text at almost 7pm that said “hey I’m drinking”. When he had previously texted me he was leaving work at 6pm. That was it.. he ghosted me the rest of the night as usual when he goes out drinking. Because he can’t just have one or two. Well, it finally happened. He was arrested for drunk driving. Got a voicemail at midnight that he was pulled over for suspicion of drunk driving and he’ll call me in the morning when he gets out. My dilemma-do I ghost him and ignore him like he has done to me hundreds of times in the last 6 years when he needs to be picked up in the morning? Give him a dose of his own medicine. See how he likes being ignored when he needs help? He has been so unreliable over the years when I needed him and flat out choses alcohol as his priority of me and the kids over and over again. (I’m also a stay at home mom for what it’s worth so I’m automatically always with them.) Or do I be a nice wife and pick him up when he calls in the morning? Part of me wants to be unreliable and ignore him like he does to me and part of me wants to be there for him.
