14 Evening and morning to all the planetoids in space for a Wednesday! Warm and humid here, a cool evening tonight and a good day tomorrow, then back to warm and nasty. Already.

Got a Zoom call to deal with this am, with the budget people. I'm puzzled as to why some of their salary numbers -- well, a lot of 'em -- look different from mine. A lot of the recipients, we were told, were supposed to get a 3.5% raise; but a number of them in the budget software clearly have had a 4%. For the life of me I don't know why I should care, except the puzzle guy in my brain wants to know the answer to the mystery.

91 75 Pixy, is 6nm chip at least twice or half of a standard than a 12nm chip or is it all marketing BS?

Comparing TSMC's 12nm and 6nm processes, they went from 33.8 million transistors per square millimeter, to 114.2 million.

So while the numbers are just names and don't measure anything specific about the chips, they are pretty accurate in relative terms. 6nm should in theory be four times as dense as 12nm, and the real ratio is about 3.4.

98 Video footage has captured the moment a huge mob started banging on the glass doors of a University of California-Berkeley theater after an IDF soldier was invited to speak.

Jewish attendees were forced to evacuate and head to an undisclosed location after hundreds of rioters stormed the event Monday evening, as one student says he was spat on by someone shouting: 'You Jew.'

This is not protest. This is mob rule.
How will these people fit into our high trust society?

167 The hope Lupe held on to that fall was that she was not alone. She had a support system through Monarch, a program designed to help students who are undocumented. Students said it allowed them to continue dreaming despite obstacles.

Months later, however, officials abruptly ended Monarch after Texas prohibited state colleges and universities from having diversity, equity and inclusion offices and holding programs based on race, ethnicity, gender identity or sexual orientation.

So I think I figured out what happened. Monarch was outside funded and then figured out how to get UT (state) money. Seems all these orgs start as a little fire and then become a roaring blaze.

Only one or two tabs open. Vids show buffering is ahead of the playing time, but I get the spinning circle and a black screen for a few seconds.

196 I can say based on my brief skimming of Insty that thumb-shaped chinless nepot John Podhoretz thinks Nikki Haley is staying "in it" just to be the I Told You So candidate when Trump inevitably loses in November to the juggernaut of charisma and competence that is Joe Biden.

And he sounds like this is a good thing that a normal person would do for noble purposes.

I only have a few programs on it. Most of the memory is taken up by Win patches and updates. But, it's a small capacity memory, that's why I'm thinking of either adding some or getting a new comp with more memory. I just don't want to have too much and Win 11 uploads itself. Don't want Win 11 from all I've read about it.

243 Ah. Yes, General Napier knew how to deal with a barbaric practice in India:

Be it so. This burning of widows is your custom; prepare the funeral pile. But my nation has also a custom. When men burn women alive we hang them, and confiscate all their property. My carpenters shall therefore erect gibbets on which to hang all concerned when the widow is consumed. Let us all act according to national customs.[To Hindu priests complaining to him about the prohibition of Sati religious funeral practice of burning widows alive on her husband’s funeral pyre.]

245 Researchers provide novel insights into female psychopathy, challenging the conventional 6:1 male-to-female psychopath ratio with new evidence suggesting a closer 1.2:1 ratio.

The research indicates that societal gender biases have obscured the true nature and prevalence of female psychopaths, who often employ manipulation and seduction rather than violence to achieve their goals.
