Many attacks about Greta Thunberg point to her "bringing no real solution". In fact, Sweden and nearby airlines recorded a reduction in travelers partially because of climate protests. Educating people about the climate IS part of the solution.https://t.co/9WQqmEK1xe?amp=1
The problem of climate is more than "We need a solution." Some solutions, like hybrid cars, existed for a long time. It's also about people and the government's unwillingness to act. 1/2
b) Obama administration forfeited public option to get support for the ACA, it got attacked, became a political liability and caused Dems two elections, and got repealed anyway.
c) Clinton had a relatively moderate platform. It's not like she won the presidency. d) And look like what happened to the moderates on the right like Kasich. So tell me, why should someone on the left trust this time would be different?
So, I've been reading a lot of commentaries saying "Y'all Dems better not pursue Medicare for all or you'll lose the moderate votes". Look, Not that I am particularly fond of medicare for all, but the logic from the supporters is not that hard to understand:

I can kinda understand why ACM/ICPC is this style because the focus is speed... But for an interview prep site primarily targeting software engineers - Really?
Keep hearing, "New mac sucks, but I don't have other choices because Windows is just awful."
a) Windows is actually a working system with loads of software and quite a good development environment for almost everything.
b) Today's Linux offers everything Mac can provide in terms of a development environment, arguably better, esp. regarding package management and backend development.
Not that I like Huawei much, but the incident reflects on the problem of our reliance on closed frameworks and infrastructures - once the provider decides you are not following rules, or they don't benefit enough, your entire product is in jeopardy.
Moreover, ponder for a moment how many close-sourced services we rely on for developing *open source* software, GitHub, Travis CI,... It is not a rarity that some big companies just close projects or shutdown APIs randomly.
Coder, engineer, reader, and nerd. Curiously exploring the interesting things in the world.
Hi, Welcome to Cats, a private instance of the federated social network Mastodon. The name comes from the personality of cats - social, yet somewhat independent, without a single monopoly, which is a good analogy of ideal social network in my eyes.
