Poor kid. Not much in the way of sympathy from Mom.

A kid can also be spoiled if they get too much attention. The father was already doing something, no need for her to do something too.

Is winning all that counts? Are you absolutely sure about that?

Very little has been said about this…..On December 2, Basque athlete Iván Fernández Anaya was competing in a cross-country race in Burlada, Navarre. He was running second, some distance behind race leader Abel Mutai - bronze medalist in the 3,000-meter steeplechase at the London Olympics. As they entered the finishing straight, he saw the Kenyan runner - the certain winner of the race - mistakenly pull up about 10 meters before the finish, thinking he had already crossed the line.

Fernández Anaya quickly caught up with him, but instead of exploiting Mutai's mistake to speed past and claim an unlikely victory, he stayed behind and, using gestures, guided the Kenyan to the line and let him cross first.

Ivan Fernandez Anaya, a Basque runner of 24 years who is considered an athlete with a big future (champion of Spain of 5,000 meters in promise category two years ago) said after the test:
"But even if they had told me that winning would have earned me a place in the Spanish team for the European championships, I wouldn't have done it either. I also think that I have earned more of a name having done what I did than if I had won. And that is very important, because today, with the way things are in all circles, in soccer, in society, in politics, where it seems anything goes, a gesture of honesty goes down well."

He said at the beginning: unfortunately, very little has been said of the gesture. And it's a shame. In my opinion, it would be nice to explain to children, so they do not think that sport is only what they see on TV: violent kicks in abundance, posh statements, fingers in the eyes of the enemy ...

The complexity is moving from our web apps to the client side and the database systems.

It looks like HTML5/JS will just win on the client side (mobile and even desktop) and we're seeing a zillion of new JS frameworks emerging.

The server side is becoming that very simple layer that just proxies calls in and out databases systems. Those database systems are doing all the hard thing now, like map/reduce, data crunching etc.

So my beloved python web app is becoming more and more of a web service that passes work to backends as fast as possible.

I quite like this whole evolution I think we're getting into :)

I've seen choices like load on client versus server swing like a pendulum over the decades.  Remember the "network computers?"  Oracle still has some lying around.  Little Sun Ray jobs, I think they are called.
