This is some genuinely badass SQL.   With the emphasis on "bad," or possibly "ass."

The query is really kind of hilarious.   I can totally relate to the thought process that generated it.   I'm sure I've done things equally silly. :)

Some folks who follow me might find this article quite fascinating.   Basically talking about how perception happens in the mind.

Yup.   BTW, the article does talk about this, in terms of "unconscious processing."

I'm under the impression that quote has been trimmed down to make it more politically correct. Still, I do hope she shows up gun in hand on the bill it self.

It's interesting to see how widespread the belief is that Sanders is a lightweight. He's been a remarkably effective leader throughout his career.

In my experience, there are at least two distinct kinds of leadership. There's the kind where a situation happens, and you take leadership in responding to it. And there is the kind where you see that the present situation is dissatisfactory, and try to figure out how to improve it. These seem similar, but the difference is that in the first case you are being driven by events, so it's sort of like steering a boat to avoid rocks. In the second, it's more like you're looking at a map and trying to figure out where you want to go, and then figuring out a good course that will get you there.

The important distinction is that when you are just trying to avoid rocks, you aren't really focused on where you want to go. Maybe the river will carry you there, maybe it won't. Neither process is guaranteed to produce a good or a bad outcome--sometimes you get somewhere good by happenstance, and sometimes the place you thought you wanted to go turns out to be a bad place.
But when we see Hillary being touted as more "experienced" than Sanders, what we are seeing is an elevation of the value of avoiding rocks above the value of trying to get somewhere better.

Both values are important. Hillary has more experience with rock-avoidance. But it's important to pay attention to the fact that Sanders not only has much more experience with planning and achieving long-term goals, his long-term goals have actually been good goals that made our country better.

It is really high time that our country had a leader who valued strategic thinking as much as tactical thinking.

(The link unfortunately includes a freakish amount of ads, but the content is solid.)
There are plenty of people spreading the lie that Bernie Sanders hasn't accomplished anything. Think again.

This is so worth reading.   I think nowadays we simply don't think about stuff like this, because it's so alien to our experience.

The blinkered view expressed in this article astonishes me. We haven't had a well behaved government in the entire lifetime of many millennials. Of course they don't envision government solving their problems.

They can see that unbridled capitalism doesn't work. They also know that unbridled socialism doesn't work. And they know how to fix it. Institutions work when we insist, and at no other time.

Unfortunately the olds who wrote and published this article still believe the illusions of the past and so they see the millennials as naive. 
The results are startling but line up with previous research on this subject.

It was a really nice concert.   Just under fifty people showed up.   A bunch of songs by Lili Boulanger and some pieces by Nadia Boulanger as well.   Piano, Cello and flute.   Some of the songs were real showstoppers, and Evie was fantastic.

This is worth reading if you think that leaving your cell phone online when taxiing prior to takeoff is perfectly okay.   That's actually probably the worst time to do it, although really there is no good time (although inverse square law makes it not such a big deal if you aren't sitting up front).
Your phone will probably annoy a few pilots and air traffic controllers. But, most likely, not badly enough for them to take action against you, if that’s what you want to know.

GSM has a dah-dit-dah wideband, highish power wake-me-up radio equivalent of Wake-on-LAN to let base stations signal the handsets higher order more efficient engine and tickle it into life. I think this is what pulses across a wide RF spectrum and makes people angry. If I was on AM radio, I used to hear it 2 sec before my phone rang.

Sorry.   On the plus side, you're more likely to get upgraded out of BA because you're not flying on Friday.   Have a safe trip!
