What evidence? Evidence of who radicalized them, most likely. Does anyone really believe bringing them to justice serves much purpose? Most of the madmen who shoot innocent people have claims based in other madmen's words. That will never change. It isn't worth sacrificing the very thing the terrorists want to destroy.

I was really excited about Parse being open source. Until I saw that it was written in JavaScript. I did not know that.https://github.com/ParsePlatform/parse-server/tree/master/src

Many of the problems facing humankind are path dependent. That is, making good choices now depend on making good choices in the past. Reversing the legacy of bad choices may require novel perspectives of even considering the problem.

By calling the attack on Paris an act of war we validate the attacker's cause, we mute the criminality of the act and limit the courses of action open to us to address the problem. We play right into the narrative ISIS is peddling! We help them!

Is ISIS going to invade or annex anything? No! Are they going to colonize France after they "win"? No! They're recruiting. Calling it an act of war is about as stupid as a thing you can do.

It's not an act of war, it's senseless mass murder of civilians, a crime of epic proportions. That's plenty without elevating the perpetrators.

If ISIS didn't exist, the [insert collective noun] would have to invent it.

With a lisp, an article like this is mostly unnecessary, as your program is already in a serialized form. #homoiconic http://jmoiron.net/blog/python-serialization/
Python has lots of built-in serialization methods. It has had a standard module called pickle for a very long time, and exposes its built-in trusted data marshaling routines in the marshal module. Since the release of Python 2.6 in October, 2008 it has also had a standard, well-tested json ...

The entire basis of modern system architecture is about shoving all manners of complex data into strings and throw them across system boundaries. Dynamic? Static? No. We're all just Stringly-typed programmers. And as useful as it is, we're going straight to hell.

I was not involved in this project, but I'm very proud, as a Lift alumnus, that this is the kind of work they're doing.

You see, wire telegraph is a kind of a very, very long cat. You pull his tail in New York and his head is meowing in Los Angeles. Do you understand this? And radio operates exactly the same way: you send signals here, they receive them there. The only difference is that there is no cat.

Good coffee. Ample power outlets. Great service. The scones were a bit of a let down.

Excellent work. However they're swamped in the summer and it can be almost impossible get an appointment. Sometimes it can take a month or more to get your bike back but the work is solid. I had a bike that had its entire front end redone (hit a 9-point buck at 50 mph) several years ago. Ran beautifully ever since.

The fish stew. That's all you need to know. Everything else I've tried is great too.

Marc L from Uptown did a great job explaining to me my options, how I could be more frugal and telling me what the risks are of postponing a repair. I never felt pressured or scared into making a decision. I felt like he was honestly concerned with helping me make the best choices I could given the budget I have. He didn't hide or spin what he thought of the some of the plumbing situation I was in, both financially and risk-wise which made me feel I could trust him. I think we will continue to use Uptown and will ask for Marc specifically if he's available for the foreseeable future.
