Reading to your kids before they enter school makes a world of difference.
 
Poor English Skills at Start of School Linked to Behavioral Difficulties

Children who enter reception with poor English language skills – whether it’s their first language or an additional language – are more likely to have social, emotional and behavioural difficulties in later years, finds a new study co-authored by UCL and Royal Holloway and funded by Wellcome.

The research is in Child Development. (full open access)

Interesting...
Katherine Johnson - doing shit like orbital mechanics... you know, trival stuff like "how to get a craft to the moon and back..."
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Katherine_Johnson

Dorothy Vaughan - ran the "West Area Computers" (a group of exclusively black women mathmeticians) and specialized in FORTRAN - some crazy machine language-esque programming language.
https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Dorothy_Vaughan

Mary Jackson - realized that no one gives a shit about "Mathematicians" but if you were an "Engineer", you got way more respect and way more money. She was the first to switch her title and then helped many others switch theirs as well. Ultimately, she gave up her status as Engineer, took the pay and status cut so she could be an Equal Opportunity Specialist which brought attention to the inequities of women and minorities.

Maybe kill the officers and then let the families sue over the bodies. There is no reason that anyone should die at the hands of the police. We need the Keepers Of The Peace back.

Sorry, that opening statement is extreme an not actually what I wish. But sometimes it seems you need extremes to reach people.

Story
Tagline
If you have enough data, there usually *is* one correct way to do things.
Introduction
Before you read anything, go take 4 minutes and watch this video about how awesome human engineers are - this video shows hows an accelerometer works and more awesomely, how it's actually made! (an accelerometer is the thing that tells your phone when to rotate the screen)

An eternal optimist, I'm extremely excited to be alive at this point in human history. The internet is the final step in the evolution of communication, but the first step to a greater collective human intelligence than we can possibly imagine. One person to one person by the fireside, to one person to many in village squares, to one person to many more people via printing presses and distributed literature, to radio broadcasts and finally to televised visuals across the planet, we have only ever had a unidirectional format of distribution. But in *only* the past 20 years (20 years!!!) we have gained the ability of every (connected) person to be heard and be able to reply to every other person on the planet. If you're not completely floored by that concept (and even more amazed to have witnessed it come about) then you're really missing something great.

Thanks to our 24/7, emotion-based info-tainment media machine, we see way more about the world than at any other time in history. And depending on who you're watching for your information, this can be a great problem for the larger population.

If you find yourself getting mad at a news article, there's a very real chance that you're being manipulated by that media outlet. Step back and try to empathize and truly understand what it would be like to be on the other side. Think about how the other side grew up, what their parents were like, how they eat, sleep and go to the bathroom (the basic problems of every human on the planet). If you can think about that (without making sophmoric, juvenile jokes) then you're one step closer to understanding *why* you disagree and not simply disagreeing "because they're just wrong".

We need more understanding as we face this deluge of information. The beauty is that you can understand almost anything you want, thanks to the internet.

As this place gets more popular (and I realize that these reviews are facilitating that) it gets a little more dooch*ee. At present, 8:45 Tuesday the guy next to me can't stop talking about how he found this place and has been coming here for years. But in general, nice place, nice drinks, nice service. Time will erode the ambiance.
