"A trio of physicists from the National Autonomous University of Mexico and Tec de Monterrey has solved a 2,000-year-old optical problem—the Wasserman-Wolf problem. In their paper published in the journal Applied Optics, Rafael González-Acuña, Héctor Chaparro-Romo, and Julio Gutiérrez-Vega outline the math involved in solving the puzzle, give some examples of possible applications, and describe the efficiency of the results when tested."
Good News for Folks with Disabilities!
The large megacorp of a parent company I work for has just changed their policies to require that all websites meet the WCAG (Web Content Accessibility Guidelines) v2!
This means: web accessibility is now a problem that the courts recognize as valid! Expect the ADA (Americans with Disabilities Act) to start including websites in their requirements soon!
Ultimately I chose to call and leave an anonymous two-fold complaint.
The first for the dent, the second for being a shitty enough company that the only action I could imagine them taking in response to my complaint is firing that employee and leaving me with no compensation.
The first question they asked was "Did anyone witness the incident" - which of course means they wouldn't have given me a fucking dime anyway.
Our local waste removal service put a big dent in my car this morning when their truck's pneumatic arm set the garbage can back down.
I'm torn between my blue collar worker solidarity feels, knowing I can probably fix that damage myself, and my outrage at having my baby screwed up by a fucken pollution profiteer.
