the Tamale Lady is going legit.
After years of the Tamale Lady going to her Mission customers, they will now flock to her. The Tamale Lady, Virginia Ramos, has been through a lot this year with her ouster from her long-time tamale-peddling post at Zeitgeist. But she's got a new home - and not just in a mural on Clarion Alley. She is working out the lease details for a brick-and-mortar storefront near 16th and Mission. Nate Albee, legislative aide to Supervisor David Campos, con...

wow.
 
So states and local retailers got their way, and now Amazon has to charge state sales tax. But this is the unintended consequence: An all-out attack on local retail that turns Amazon's new liability into an asset. 

Once Amazon had to charge sales tax, it had no reason not to open local distribution centers around the country, to take advantage of delivery efficiency. And now that it's running those distro centers, why not make them into freaking droneports? 

If consumers can get what they want in less time than it takes to drive to the store, what happens to local retail shops and chains that the sales tax ruling was supposed to protect?

Bezos plays better chess.

You're not the boss of me now, and you're not so big.

the only thing that would make this better is if he swung with a lightsaber. 
 
The Physics of Baseball

Yu Darvish is a 26-year old pitcher from Japan. His throwing motion for different kinds of pitches is so similar, it makes it very difficult for batters to detect what's coming. (This animated GIF shows 5 pitches superimposed in one image: watch how his arm follows a similar path, but the balls go 5 different ways.)

Why is that important? According to Steve the Ump (http://goo.gl/SYoS9), a batter has 4/100th of a second to decide to swing or not. If a right-handed batter swings 1/100th of a second too soon, the ball goes foul. If the batter swings 1/100th of a second too late, the ball goes foul. So when an announcer talks about "split-second decision-making" by a batter, that's how much the second gets split.
