This weekend is probably going to see a dip in the number of posts I make to the blog. Maybe not, but I think it is likely. Don't worry, I'll be back to normal next week.
Edit: Okay, thanks to my large RSS feed reader, I managed 9 posts today. Maybe we won't see quite such a large dip. We'll see.
The Department of Justice has filed a motion to unseal the search warrant executed by the FBI earlier this week at former President Donald Trump’s Mar-a-Lago resort, Attorney General Merrick Garland announced on Thursday.
In a brief press conference, Garland confirmed that he personally approved the warrant, a decision Garland said he did not treat lightly.
This is an absolutely fantastic breakdown and explanation of how climate emission predictions are made, their shortcomings, etc.
Bear in mind it is still a small sample size, just twenty people. But still, potentially a very exciting development:
Corneas made from pig collagen have restored sight for people who were previously legally blind or visually impaired. Two years after the operations, none of the recipients have reported serious complications or adverse side effects.
Yuh-Line Niou, a New York state assemblymember, is at the front of a crowded pack of Democrats heading into the Aug. 23 primary. If she wins, Niou will make history as the first openly autistic member of Congress.
One of the reasons I prefer to write on the open web rather than on Facebook is that if I get an Aha! idea about a feature, on my blog I can implement it. On Facebook I'm just a user.
That was/is one of the great things about the web. Anyone can develop features for it. On Facebook, just their employees can. No wonder it never moves.
I can certainly connect with the people of Kenya, the drawn out election process is a unique torture in this era of instant gratification.
It has been two days since voting ended in Kenya’s closely contested presidential election but for many citizens of the country, it feels like much longer.
“I am very anxious,” said Jacqueline Adhiambo, a 31-year-old resident of Eldoret, in western Kenya. “When I wake up in the middle of the night, I have to fight to desire to check my phone or turn on the television.”
Adhiambo, a voter registered in Eldoret, a stronghold of its most famous son, Deputy President and presidential candidate William Ruto, left her town for the capital, Nairobi, on the eve of the August 9 election. She was worried that violence could break out if Ruto lost to his closest competitor, Raila Odinga.
That line of thinking was critical to a 64 percent turnout in Tuesday’s election – a drop from almost 80 percent in 2017.
Congratulations to Gen. Michael E. Langley!
17-year old improves electric motor design such that it might see commercial uses in things like electric vehicles, and in doing so ease reliance on rare elements
As much as I enjoy the 17-year old inventor angle, this was also a great deep dive into electric motors and their production and environmental issues.
