Gun Showdown In The Texas House

Star-Telegram: House Speaker Dennis Bonnen wants to make one thing perfectly clear. Gun rights are safe and sound this session, despite some grumbling from grassroots activists. “I’ll bet my critics an AR-15 that their gun rights won’t be infringed,” he posted recently on Facebook. This comes after some Texans began criticizing the Angleton Republican for “betraying” efforts to pass more legislation. “For the first time in decades, a Speaker has appointed anti-gun Democrats to chair the two mo...

"'Rutabaga' comes from rotabagge, the plant’s Swedish name, meaning 'baggy root.'"

"This is, perhaps, the reason that it’s sometimes called a Swedish turnip or simply a swede. Dense and sweetly earthy, a spheroid that can grow to the size of a human head, with a mottled, brown-and-white surface and a buttery, yellow interior, the rutabaga looks like an overgrown turnip—which it is, sort of, at least on its mother’s side. A reproductive quirk of the Brassica genus allows for uncommonly easy hybridization (see the evidence in your local grocery store: kalettes, the frilly little...

"They left the park chatting about Trump. Seema liked that Luis had to bend down at least half a foot just to talk to her."

"It wasn’t only that he was tall, it was that his height made him a bit clumsy, and that was sweet. They continued to talk about Trump on autopilot, the way people were doing that summer. All of a sudden, Seema wanted to say something real. 'When things are tough with my family,' she said, 'I like to watch Trump, because he just takes my mind off stuff. No matter what happens personally, there’s this much greater disaster taking place.' 'Very well put,' Luis said. 'I do a lot of private-slash-pu...

Tappy the Robot vs xDeviceRobot

by Dennis Crouch The new HUAWEI indictments make include some amount of comedy.  The basic claim centers on an anthropomorphic robot named “Tappy.”   Tappy is owned by T-Mobile, but HUAWEI was allowed to use Tappy to test phones it was making for T-Mobile (subject to a non-disclosure agreement).  HUAWEI then started developing its own robot — with the much less friendly name of xDeviceRobot.   HUAWEI tried to buy Tappy, but was refused and so figured out a way to infuse xDeviceRobot with some of...
