Tag types – Coeur d'Alene Press

I hate to say it. I mean I really hate to say it. They’re pretty good at rooting their own horns, or at least lecturing on how to toot it daily to keep it in prime condition.

Half of my clothes would still have that little plastic tag if it weren’t for the type As in my life. In fiction, you’re either a planner or a pantser (as in flying by the seat of your pants-er). Well in life (and maybe a little in writing), I’m a pantser. Which is to say I’m not a person who can reliably get myself (or my blouse) to a pair of scissors. The fact that the scissors are 14 feet away is not important. Before you ask, no, the tag… Source link

Taxpayer-funded research ought to be public

Last week, the Biden administration announced that Americans will get access to academic research that their federal tax dollars pay for. It’s about time. Scholarly journals have run a racket for decades. Researchers who want their work published in a prestigious journal hand it over to publishers who charge exorbitant fees to libraries and anyone else who wants access to cutting-edge work. Publishers got away with it because their print journals were the only game in town. Then the internet began to democratize information and eliminate paper publishing costs. It became a lot harder to justify keeping content, especially publicly funded content, behind steep paywalls. The federal government spends more than $100 billion on science and engineering research annually. The… Source link

Testing New Waters on the Young 27

The Beasleys’ new Young 27. Photos by George LaBonte For Brook Beasley and his wife, Olivia, what began as an impromptu vacation to theFlorida Keys during the 2020 COVID lockdowns unraveled a series of events that would see the pair and their four children uproot their lives in North Carolina and become permanent residents of South Florida.  Brook Beasley On their return trip from the Keys, a sudden school cancellation back home resulted in the Beasley family extending their stay by another month at an Airbnb rental home in Jupiter.

Statistician Creates Formula To Predict When A Child May Throw A Tantrum In Long Car Journeys

When you’re a little kid, five minutes can feel like an hour – especially when you’re stuck in a car seat. That’s why, as any parent can tell you, there’s a limit on how long a car journey with a toddler can be before the whole thing erupts into a screaming match about the feasibility of a game of hide and seek halfway down the freeway. If science can crack cold fusion, it can certainly crack toddler tantrums. James Hind, a lecturer in statistics from Nottingham Trent University in the UK, has calculated a mathematical formula for predicting when things are about to go sideways in a long car drive – and it looks like this: T = 70 + 0.5E + 15F – 10S  Hind’s research, which was developed alongside UK auto insurer LV= Britannia Rescue, was based on information provided by… Source link
