Made a quick meal from odds and ends. My kids want me to remember the recipe:
Mashed potatoes, salt, butter, sour cream, milk to taste and texture preference.
Brown and cut bite sized pieces of Andouille (sp?) sausage and chicken.
Add ~16 oz crushed tomatoes (pretty thick), 16 oz water, and 3-4 tsp Better than Bouillon.
Salt and pepper to taste. 2 Tbsp brown sugar (optional).
Various frozen veggies. Simmer more.
Recommend mixing the two parts on your plate or bowl.
I had to fix typos because my screen was blurry.
I'm trying to figure out a platform for creating open educational resource chemistry assessment questions. I want professors to be able to import and export the questions created with different learning management systems with all the learning technology and question test interoperability standards. So far, I can use D2L (supported by my school) with a clunky GUI editor. I'd love to enter LaTeX formulas with the mhchem package, but I can't find a platform I can access that has it integrated.
"Our model shows that a shuffling of resources so that the worst off are lifted up and the top end is brought down can dramatically reduce stealing, and hence increase trust."
"Severe sentences can make individuals so much worse off that there may be no feasible legitimate way for them to ever regain the happy zone above the threshold. By imposing a really big cost on them through a huge punishment, you may be committing them to a life where the only recourse is ever more desperate attempts to leapfrog themselves back to safety via illegitimate means."
I didn't learn about this MLK Jr. until I sought out his speeches in my mid 20s. I have lived in too many places that even resisted calling it Martin Luther King, Jr. Day, but called it Civil Rights Day, instead. Places where King is honored to think of his victories as done. I hope to honor his fights against poverty, racism, and injustice that we are still fighting, today.
I just joined today. I'm trying to get things figured out and my profile all set up. I look forward to interacting with others here. #introduction.
#introductions I’m Lola - I was born and raised in Ibadan, Nigeria but have lived in the US most of my life. I teach biomedical informatics and work on AI in medicine and telehealth research.
I also write short stories - literary, historical, and speculative. My first book will be published in 2022 by Amistad (North America) and Trapeze Books (UK).
I love to travel, read, talk politics (I’m pretty liberal). I’m addicted to Scrabble. I speak Yoruba, Igbo and I’m learning Spanish on Duolingo.
I'm TBYB; Don't want to use my real name and I'm too lazy to come up with a pseudonym.
I'll be honest here: I'm here purely for the writing and occasionally talking about what I'm up to. I get enough noise about politics, the news, and general internet drama daily.
I'm also here to overcome my crippling fear of inadequacy when it comes down to my own writings. All advice/feedback is welcome.
I flip between short stories, long-form reviews, and occasional journal entries. Anyway, #introduction
It's nice to see so clearly presented some things I had loosely come to understand over the last years.
-Capitalism vs. Socialism is not the same conflict as Democracy vs. Authoritarianism
-Both-sides-ism is a lie when it comes to comparing the Democratic and Republican parties in the US.
This is what I think about my thoughtful, moderate friends:
“What Facebook is not good at is analyzing outcomes of their indifference to things,” the former Facebook employee told me. “Again and again they try not to advantage one side or another, and only in hindsight do they discover the consequences.”
My favorite, regional news source is Scalawag Magazine. I've been supporting it for around 2 years. It helps me understand things outside of my experience. For example:
I'm not a fan of this music, but I like knowing why it moves other people. My story isn't the center of change, but I'm trying to hear what people are feeling who need change the most.
Teacher, Biophysicist, Father. I love dance, working outdoors, learning intensely, and dabbling in many things.
