    For Thanksgiving, at the Tribune-Review:Editor's note: As has become our custom, a reprint of a special editorial on this special day.They then go on to write about Thanksgiving, Harry Truman, and the Separation of Church and State.We deconstructed this piece of feel good Turkey a couple of years ago.But since they published again, we'll deconstruct again.While they selectively quote presumably their favorite Democratic president of the last 100 years, they failed to quote (again presumably) their favorite Republican president of the same time span, Ronald Reagan, when he spoke about…

    26 Nov 2014 | 10:59 am
    Researchers from CMU's Machine Learning Department performed fMRI scans of eight people as they read a chapter of "Harry Potter and the Sorcerer's Stone." They then analyzed the scans, cubic millimeter by cubic millimeter, for every four-word segment of that chapter. The result was the first integrated computational model of reading, identifying which parts of the brain are responsible for such subprocesses as parsing sentences, determining the meaning of words and understanding relationships between characters.

    Mila hasn't uttered the words "I do it" yet, but she is quickly running towards that finish line. She's running to that finish line while wearing a scowl, by the way. That's her "Give me the damn spoon, woman" face. Clearly it matters if I hold the spoon. I mean, so much food ended up in her face. And then back out of her face because ... yeah. Putting food in Mila's mouth is very similar to trying to shove water into a sprinkler while it's on. She likes to blow raspberries the second you get near her which is exactly why there is smashed up avocado on my ceiling. And walls. And behind the…

I mean, I have eight trees up and decorated right now. And, I'm not done. Crazy doesn't happen overnight, of course.

The rule I abide by is that I have know how I'm going to use something if I want to buy it. I also have a list of things that I need so that…

    The To Do List for this weekend was a loooooooong one. It's that last minute push before the holiday season crashes into the room and demands my full attention. But. Weather. Saturday's list was destroyed by awful weather. An errand that should have been a quick one turned out to be not so quick because of freezing rain and awful roads and accidents everywhere. While we were fortunate to avoid the really bad stuff and only had to deal with delays, well, DELAYS. Half the day was shot because of the weather. Sunday's list was an even longer one, but when it's 65 degrees out at the end of…
