In an earlier post, I wrote the following words: in an object-oriented codebase the kit should be as discrete as possible. The more you use the development kit, the less object-oriented your code really is or your abstractions are not the best they can be.. I feel the need to elaborate this point, since it

Photo: Spencer Platt (Getty Images) Buying in bulk can be an empowering experience. The combination of the cost-savings, plus the satisfaction of not needing to buy that again for a while, can leave you feeling like you’ve managed to really cheat the system.

Earlier this month, one Rhode Island school district made headlines after giving some of its students—those with unpaid balances for school meals—cold sun butter and jelly sandwiches (along with milk and veggies) instead of hot meal items, available to all other students. School lunch debt is a nightmare that’s become a common reality, giving rise

What Google gives, Google can take back. Bearing some fiendish undertones eerily reminiscent of the Google ad-blocking conspiracy theories of a few years back, Google has once again cracked its almighty algo whip, leaving the online community befuddled and sending dozens of prominent news sites into a tailspin. Popular cryptocurrency news site CCN has just

ABOUT THE MAP This map is a macroscopic, historical, trans-disciplinary introduction to (the) cognitive science(s). Moving from left to right, the map is read in a roughly historical fashion, but not literally, as we are compressing a n-dimensional  intellectual space into a two dimensional map grid.

Executive Summary In many organizations, front-line managers develop their own IT solutions independently of the IT function, usually because IT managed initiatives aren’t delivering solutions in time.  This can present risks for the organization, and in order to better ensure that front-line managers don’t go rogue on digital, IT functions should establish a central IT unit

Africa has made great strides over the years in getting connected to the Internet. The continent now has 453,329,534 Internet users, which translates to an Internet penetration of 32.5%. This statistic is steadily growing, and we are steadily shaking off the tag of the dark continent. However, the question needs to be asked; where is

In 2008, scientists from Oxford and Aberdeen University made a startling discovery in the northwest of Scotland. Near the village of Ullapool, which sits on the coast opposite the Outer Hebrides, they found a debris deposit created by an ancient meteor impact dated to 1.2 billion years ago. The thickness and extent of the debris

There’s no critical term more bedevilled than “auteur.” It’s used sometimes as an honorific, to praise directors with a strong artistic mark, and sometimes merely as a description, to suggest that directors bear the ultimate responsibility for a movie’s quality (or lack of it). It’s sometimes used as a power move to assert the responsibility

The country club, once a mainstay of American suburbia, faces a cloudy future, with a changing culture eroding its societal influence. Golf and tennis, the traditional club pastimes, have lost popularity. Declining marriage and fertility rates mean fewer families joining. Young professionals, many burdened with limited incomes and high debt, balk at paying dues. And

Abstract Rhino- and enteroviruses are important human pathogens, against which no antivirals are available. The best-studied inhibitors are “capsid binders” that fit in a hydrophobic pocket of the viral capsid. Employing a new class of entero-/rhinovirus inhibitors and by means of cryo–electron microscopy (EM), followed by resistance selection and reverse genetics, we discovered a hitherto

I was in a narrow kitchen in Mumbai, one of India’s most strikingly modern cities, watching an ancient Indian meal being cooked on vessels of baked clay. Utensils made from leaves, wood and metal were scattered across the kitchen. The food was being prepared using only ingredients native to the subcontinent, which meant that the
