#Hamilton, #Lindsay and #ThunderBay #Ontario are getting a #BasicIncome!
“Premier Kathleen Wynne announced Monday that Hamilton, Lindsay and Thunder Bay will take part in Ontario’s basic income pilot project.
She said in a speech at Liuna Station in Hamilton that: “The project will explore the effectiveness of providing a basic income to people who are currently living on low incomes, whether they are working or not. People participating in our pilot communities will receive a minimum amount of income each year— a basic income, no matter what.”
The premier said the three-year project will start for people making “just under $17,000 a year, but even that amount may make a real difference to someone who is striving to reach for a better life.””
Brings .home .warp .tpa .rtp and .spawn and more to modless Snapshot (and Vanilla) servers 🙂
This is a python script I wrote that wraps itself around the Minecraft console and enables .commands
I wrote this specifically for Snapshot servers that have no modloader or API support. My testing environment is the minecraft_server.jar running the latest snapshot (1.12-pre2 at time of writing) — It may run on linux as well as python is cross platform.
Here’s a screenshot of it running on the latest snapshot
