"PM for a day": dissident Tories plan to bring down the government the day after Boris Johnson becomes Prime Minister (Mon, 24 Jun 2019)
Boris Johnson -- a racist, sexist, homophobic lying buffoon who has been repeatedly caught out using lies to sway public opinion -- is now, incredibly, tipped to become the leader of the Conservative Party and thus the Prime Minister of the UK (this is because outgoing PM Theresa May totally bungled Brexit, and the UK's form of parliamentary democracy lets the ruling party fill the PM's seat with a vote of party members, and the British Tories have become the swivel-eyed racist loony party, and Boris is the perfect nominee for King of the Racist Swivel-Eyed Loons). One legacy of Theresa May's incompetence is the slender Conservative majority in Parliament, which only exists thanks to a tie-up with the authoritarian religious fanatics of the DUP, who had to be bought off with a one billion pound state giveaway. The situation is so fragile that a defection from even a few Conservative MPs could bring down the government with a no-confidence vote that could result in another general election being called -- with a strong possibility that Jeremy Corbyn and the Labour Party will form the next government. Enter the Conservative Party itself, whose membership and Parliamentary caucus are both deeply divided between run-of-the-mill bigots, oligarchs, bootlickers, virulent racists, temporarily embarrassed millionaires, colonialism larpers, misogynists, dominionists, islamophobes, homophobes, posh boys, and garden variety Little Englanders. With just a tiny bit of dissent -- three MPs -- the party could pull off that no-confidence vote, which Labour has promised to call the day after the election. Read the rest

These Seals are Singing for Science (Mon, 24 Jun 2019)
As you may have noticed, a number of bird species have proven capable of mimicking snippets of sound they overhear, be it a melody, the wail of an ambulance or a dirty phrase taught to them by some drunk fella at a party. But here's the thing: most mammals suck at it. Not so seals. They're able to reproduce the sounds they hear, even if they're outside of their regular vocal range. In this video, these seals, who were schooled by scientists from the University of St. Andrews, are captured barking out the Star Wars theme song and Twinkle Twinkle Little Star. It's adorable! It's also a part of some pretty important research that could eventually lead to a greater under standing of speech disorders in humans. This sort of stuff's beyond me, but Gizmodo's George Dvorsky does a damn fine job of breaking down why the work has the potential to be so important. From Gizmodo: “First, knowing how seals use sounds is important to assess how they are affected by noise created by human activities such as shipping or marine construction,” he explained. “This, in turn, will help us to manage wild populations more carefully. Second, studying how vocal learning works in seals and how it might be naturally impaired in some individuals can help to understand vocal development and its limitations in other mammalian learners that use similar structures, such as humans.” It's a lengthy story, but it's fascinating stuff--if you've got a few minutes to kill, taking a read of it is definitely worth your time.

Raspberry Pi 4 (Mon, 24 Jun 2019)
The fourth incarnation of the wonderful Raspberry Pi is upon us. A faster quard-core CPU, up to 4GB of RAM, gigabit ethernet and dual HDMI outputs are the upgrades; there's USB-C too, but just for power. The CPU boost is a big deal, say early users, but dual-4k displays and 4x the RAM bring it squarely into the realm of everyday desktop computing. Still $35; the 4GB model is $55. Seriously look at this. True Gigabit Ethernet speed on Raspberry Pi 4.
