* Census considers new approach to asking about race – by not using the term at all*
#genealogy #census #USA #2020
Instead, the new census questionnaire may tell people to check the “categories” that describe them.

On that image which Pew claims is a possible 2020 question, the last line clearly uses the word "race", so the concept has been given up completely on the idea.

Riddle: Animals on the bed
You walk into a room and see a bed. On the bed there are two dogs, four cats, a giraffe, five cows and a duck. There are also three chickens flying above the bed. How many legs are on the floor?

Suggested answer
Since all of the animals are on the bed and no other furniture is mentioned in the room, there are six legs on the floor. Four legs from the bed and your own two legs as you stand in the room, amazed that someone managed to get so many animals onto a bed. And the ceiling must be vaulted to fit a giraffe. Also, who’s on clean-up duty?

My answer
The suggested answer is obviously wrong :-)
It ignores the clue the riddle starts with, all those animals on the bed. The animals are on the bed because it is nice warm, and it's warm because it is a heated water bed, which does not have legs. Also keep in mind that you are not standing, but walking, and one foot is raised most of the time. Therefore, the correct answer is one:-)

GEDCOM Tags
#genealogy #standard #GEDCOM
The GEDCOM Tags overview has been updated with GEDCOM 4.0 tags; literally hundreds of abandoned tags!
GEDCOM 4.0 includes tags that are commands, all of which starts with a dollar sign, and even a tag that starts with digits instead of a letter.
