The pandemic is changing how companies like Amazon Web Services and Twilio hire software developers, as Silicon Valley rethinks the interview process (TWLO, AMZN)

Developer job interviews have gone virtual, as most Silicon Valley engineers are working from home amid the pandemic.  That's resulted in a rethinking of how these interviews are conducted: Developers are traditionally asked to solve textbook computer science problems on a whiteboard as part of the job process — something that's harder to do over videoconference.  At the same time, companies like Amazon Web Services and Twilio say that there have been benefits to the new way of doing things. S...

Constitutional limits on government power don’t completely vanish during a crisis

California Attorney General Xavier Becerra has been quick to file lawsuits against the federal government, exhibiting a hair-trigger sensitivity to potential overreaches of government power. But that sensitivity has vanished when it comes to the constitutional rights of Californians during the open-ended coronavirus emergency. While acknowledging that “the Constitution remains in place,” Becerra said in a recent interview with the Associated Press that it “has provisions in it that address emerg...

The Ultimate Collection of Quotes About Fatherhood

Fathers tend to be taken for granted. We invariably make more of a fuss over Mom on Mother’s Day than Dad on Father’s Day, for one. Dads are like a steady but less sentimentalized institution — the sun in our familial sky that warms and gives life but isn’t much thought about unless he goes missing. Yet this belies the enormous impact fathers truly have on their children; while a dad’s nurturing may often take the form of playful roughhousing and silly jokes, his influence is quite serious and ...

Our ultimate goal is to have zero omissions. Of course, we’ll all get blindsided – a midseason trade, an unscheduled rookie success story, or a Ball family international incident.

The great American work ethic is carry on no matter what.

That is what we are taught to do. I myself have relied on tiger balm and grit to finish a race despite strained tendons...
