Ironically, when my mother describes people’s children (including her own) as non-doctors, she delivers the news as if it were a grave diagnosis. – “Acute amedicalosis? Oh no! Ma, do you think they’re gonna make it?”

My mother knows every person in Trinidad and will refer to them in conversation as if I’m supposed to know who all of them are.
“Do you remember, before you are born, the uncle who had died? It’s his niece, she is going to go to Stanford.”
My grandmother used to do the same except instead of Stanford it always ended with “yeah well they died.”
Reminds me of rural Midwest driving directions. “Right, so, you want to go down the old state route and then turn left two roads before where Olsen’s barn used to be, take the right after Carter’s place and then it’ll be a few more minutes and you’re there.
To this day, anytime I go home, I get the full rundown of the extended families of kids who were like 3 years behind me in school.
Absolutely, If one of them has a dog that got sprayd by a skunk, you need to know.
I am about half-way through Zac Gordon’s book React Explained. I read most of it on the plane back from Europe and didn’t do the exercises. A couple weeks ago I finally circled back to the exercises.
For the JSX exercise #3 we are asked to create a Header component with a header element and the two earlier used example inside of it.
When I tried to run my code, every browser would choke and the computer freeze. I was quite stumped. I couldn’t figure it out. I gave up and watch Zac’s video and before he got to the spot it already dawn on me that Capitalization is a feature of JSX and React.
When I first wrote my code it wasn’t clear to me the distinction between Header the component and <header/> the element. I had both capitalized and sent the browser into an endless loop fast, with self referencing component calls.
Here is the correct code. Capital H for the component. Small h for the header element.
In June, we visited Belgrade, Serbia and experimented with 360° photography. This is a photo of the Krypta of the Temple. The main church space wasn’t finished yet, except for the mosaic in the rotunda. Christian also made a 360° image. It always looks funny when people using their phone to create these image. They are highly focused to chase down every blue dot in their camera, so the Pixel camera can stick together these immersive experiences.
A moral panic is a widespread fear, most often an irrational one, that someone or something is a threat to the values, safety, and interests of a community or society at large. Typically, a moral panic is perpetuated by news media, fueled by politicians, and often results in the passage of new laws or policies that target the source of the panic. In this way, moral panic can foster increased social control.
