It’s been a long time since I used by blog. It’s time to stop being lazy and get back on the wagon.
To start, here’s a recurring I might do–post a list of Interesting Things that I’ve read recently. I may or may not agree with what they say, but I found them to be compelling or thought provoking in some way. So here goes.
Interesting reads (stories) and watches (videos) for the week of March 15th, 2021:
- The Science of Making Americans Hurt Their Own Country (The Atlantic)
- Fly in to Resorts and Lodges with Runways: Western US, Canada Boast many Locations (AOPA) is from 2017 but has some ideas that seem worth checking out for pilots in the Western USA.
- Glitterbomb Trap Catches Phone Scammer (who gets arrested) (YouTube) a great Mark Rober video that uses his classic Glitterbomb device to aid in locating participants in a popular scam.
- Hello, Windows! RetroCoding “Hello World” for Windows with Dave (YouTube) I recently discovered Dave’s channel and really enjoy some of his videos. Though I haven’t built a Winodws application in a very, very long time, I liked getting an idea of the bare minimum needed to do so.
- Private Schools Have Become Truly Obscene (The Atlantic) is a story about the shifting balance of power between private school teachers/admins and the parents who pay too much to send their kids there.
- Peanut Butter-Miso Cookies (NYTimes Cooking) I haven’t tried them but might… 🙂
Alright, that’s it for now. I’ll try to post more of these as I accumulate enough to make it seem like something worthy of posting.
