My sister-in-law pushed her laptop too close to a candle. She noticed a spot appearing on the screen. When the spot started growing, she moved the laptop to try to figure out what was causing the spot, and noticed that the candle had burned a hole through the cover. The dark spot hasn't altered the resolution - just dimmed in that spot.

This guy could be a criminal, but if his crimes were committed in Australia, he's Australia's criminal. Who would make PNG a dumping ground? The Australian government - it seems to be official policy.

That pipe to the lower right was probably previously street run-off. But now they've created a nice network of canals, and the drainage is a strange aquamarine color due to chemicals added to the canal water. I think the chemicals are to prevent aquatic weed growth, but it seems odd to drain it in the river. The river has a polluted past, but as the second photo shows, the turtles seem to be doing OK.

Ancient grain? Yeah, whatever - the ingredients list calls it wheat. And for something so ancient and traditional, the label lists five patents?!

*note: I didn't buy this product - just observing.

Bezos says he wants to directly control the schools’ operation so that they can be run like Amazon and adopt Amazon’s principles. “Most important among those will be genuine, intense customer obsession,” he writes. “The child will be the customer.”

I WANT ICE CREAM! Wait. I'm not the customer.

Just happened to watch The Greatest Showman and part of the Gangs of New York in the same week. The Barnum building burns in both movies, but for different reasons.

No, No, NO

Mental health counseling is not a substitute for daily abuse. Not being able to take a true break is an invitation to abuse and excuse for inadequate staffing. When people are forced to be on call during their breaks, it promotes unhealthy gorging (or not eating), which adds to job stress and increases cardiovascular risks. There is a lot of social pressure on caregivers. Institutions take advantage of this to abuse employees. This ballot initiative is a perfect example of that social pressure. It's also an example of why there are shortages and turnover - because some fields are expected to tolerate chaos without appropriate breaks. People simply leave the field rather than try to change the culture.

There are other ways to accommodate breaks without taking an entire ambulance off-line.
