+Sarah Weinberger and I are thrilled to announce the birth of our daughter Shira Tova Weinberger. She was born on Thursday, June 16th, 2016 at 9:04 pm at Kaiser San Francisco (6.16.16 for those palindrome aficionados among us), weighing 7 lbs 4.9 oz, just in time to be the greatest Father's Day present imaginable. Mother and baby are healthy and well, and we're all at home now. Please feel free to text and email us, although we probably won't be getting back to you immediately :-)

We chose to name our daughter, Shira Tova, after Joel's Grandma Sherry, his paternal grandmother. Sherry passed away when Joel was only 7 years old, but he remembers their years together with extreme fondness, from their summers at Lake Buel in the Berkshires of Massachusetts, to her guitar playing and singing. She was a joy-filled, vivacious woman, who filled every room she entered. Her love resonated with everyone she met, but most especially through the family she built, who she still influences to this day. Her energy was always palpable, as we can already tell is with the case with Shira.

Besides the vocal similarity to the name "Sherry," the Hebrew word "shira" means "song" and "tova" means "good" or "beautiful," so together they literally translate as "beautiful song," which describes Sherry on many levels. Additionally, "Tova" was the Hebrew name of Sarah's grandmother, Tosia, and we are thrilled to be able to honor her as well.

East meets West.
On Wednesday, members of the Hindu Sena, a right-wing Indian nationalist group, gathered in a New Delhi protest park to ask the Hindu gods to help Donald Trump win the presidential election. “Only Donald Trump can save humanity,” Vishnu Gupta, the group’s founder, told reporters.

Today's minor delightful experience with Progressive Web Apps:

Decided it was about time to try a factory reset of my Nexus 5X today. Went through the process, which is about as sad as one might expect. Everything went smoothly, just slowly. When I got to my home screen, I had the usual realization of "oh no, my apps are going to be installing for the next 6 hours, and my phone won't be usable."

Except, sitting there, completely usable on my homescreen... my PWAs. They started up, ran, and worked perfectly. The only part of my phone that worked, other than the pre-installed apps*.

Thanks, +Alex Russell and co.!

* To be fully honest, of course, this only worked because Chrome is installed with the factory image. Of course, it's effectively just an type of Android run-time, so it's not really all that special.

A worthwhile piece based on a noteworthy statistic. The other 47%.
Nearly half of Americans would have trouble finding $400 to pay for an emergency. I’m one of them.

Courteous staff and unbeatable location. Rooms were a bit small, though, and the hotel was extremely hot.

Fantastic soft serve gelato. Incredibly rich and creamy. I got the baked apple ice cream, which has the distinct flavor of apples, but not overwhelmingly so as I've found most Apple ice cream I've had in the past to be. I also got chunks of candied apple on top and caramelized almonds. The apples were tasty but actually a bit too sweet for my taste, especially given the delicately flavored ice cream. The almonds, on the other hand, were a perfect compliment, not too sweet and just a tad salty. For what it's worth, I also got a taste of the chocolate and would happily have a cup of it any time, but I just thought the baked apple was too unique to pass up.

A nice idea, but the execution is not fantastic. We had several starters, including a salt and pepper tofu that was quite nice, albeit simple, and homemade kimchi which was probably the highlight of the night. For our mains, we split ramen and wok noodles, both with fried chicken. The fried chicken was very good, Crispy and almost dumpling-like, bursting with flavor when you bite in. However, the rest of both dishes, while not bad, were uninspired. The broth for the ramen was quite weak and without much flavor, and perhaps could have cooked with the chicken for a while longer. The wok noodles had great texture, but lacked almost any flavor, and the vegetables on top didn't add much. The beer selection was nice, especially for Barcelona where you don't see large collections that often All in all, fine if you have a hankering for noodles, but I wouldn't go out of my way for it. Nothing bad, it just wasn't exciting.

Had a deliciously balanced flat white here. Also had a great espresso shot, on the nuttier side, with very, very light fruit notes. The cinnamon roll was quite sweet, but had a delicious richness, and the blueberry scone was delightful, not overly sweet at all. My wife also had a very good smoothie from the co-located juice bar, "Mother."
