SiFive’s new PC is bringing open-source computing closer to reality

One of the most interesting projects to watch these days in tech is RISC-V. The non-profit organization and wider community is building an open-source and standardized instruction set architecture (ISA) that allows chip creators to design their own chips unencumbered by licensing and patents typical of other ecosystems, such as those of Arm. Building an ISA and the associated tooling is hard work — and expensive, which is one reason why the industry has been practically impervious to the open-so...

How Daisy changed political advertising

Election Day, November 3: A polarizing Republican candidate who has spent much of his adult life heading a family business faces a Democrat who has spent most of his adult life as an elected official. The Republican has been branded as an extremist, a narcissist, and possibly a fascist—none of which deters his fanatical supporters. The Democrat is overshadowed by a glamorous predecessor and tarred by a specious eleventh-hour scandal. In the background—or foreground, depending on your perspectiv...

Liberals should oppose racial preferences and reject Prop. 16: Richard Sander

As a dyed-in-the-wool liberal Democrat, a very early supporter of Barack Obama’s presidential bid, and a co-founder of the University of California (UC) at Los Angeles’s program in public interest law, I do not understand how any liberal acquainted with the facts could support racial preferences. On Election Day, California voters will decide on Proposition 16, which would allow race and sex to be “considered” in decisions about state jobs, contracting, and, most notably, in admissions to public...

America, flaws and all, is still a land of opportunity

In last week’s debate, and throughout the time since he won the Democratic nomination, former Vice President Joe Biden has called America systemically racist. Many other leaders in academics and business have used the same phrase. The danger with that characteristic is that if a system is racist, then the essential elements of that system are unworthy of acceptance.  Labeling a person racist cuts off further conversation with that person. Labeling a system racist points us away from attempting i...

Proposition 16 solves for a problem that may not actually exist

This year, California voters are being asked to vote on an initiative, Proposition 16, that would again make race an explicit factor in public employment, contracting, and college admissions. This effort comes over twenty years after Californians outlawed the use of affirmative action — or the preferencing of race, ethnicity, or gender — in these processes. Nearly all of California’s political heavyweights, from vice presidential nominee Kamala Harris to Gov. Gavin Newsom, have endorsed the meas...

On the same page: Harlequin, harlots, and all, all, all

The post for August 26, 2020 was called “Harlequin’s Environment.” Two more essays followed, and ever since I have been meaning to return to the buffoon’s dictionary page, especially because in that post I misspelt the Dutch word for “harp” (my apologies and thanks to our correspondent who spotted my wrong form). Those who have read the entire series will remember that, though harlequin is still believed to be a word of “disputable” origin (the epithet in quotes means that the dictionary maker h...

Caravan of ‘No on Prop. 22’ rideshare drivers to stop in LA

A car caravan of more than 250 rideshare drivers will bring their “No on Prop. 22” message to Los Angeles on Wednesday, alleging the ballot measure would lock workers into sub-minimum wage jobs with little in the way of benefits. The two-day caravan will start in San Diego before moving to L.A., Bakersfield, Fresno and San Francisco. The drivers hope to gather support for their cause as Californians begin voting by mail in the Nov. 3 election. Drivers from across Orange County plan to hold a sim...

Study: California Police Disproportionately Cite Black, Latino Residents For Non-Traffic Infractions

(CNN) — Black and Latino adults in California are disproportionately cited for minor, non-traffic infractions like loitering or sleeping in public compared to their White counterparts, according to a new study. In Los Angeles, 30% of citations for non-traffic infractions between 2017 and 2019 were issued to Black residents, though they make up just 7% of the city’s population, according the study, which was released Wednesday by the Lawyers’ Committee for Civil Rights of the San Francisco Bay Ar...

California’s Wine Country Residents Facing Fire Fatigue

NAPA, Calif. (AP) — Will Abrams and his family packed their pickup truck with laptops, clothes, sleeping bags and a tent and quickly left their rental home in California’s wine country after seeing flames on a hill about a quarter-mile away Monday morning.

In 2017, Abrams woke up to find their Santa Rosa home on fire and cleared burning branches from the driveway so he could get his wife, 12-year-old son and 9-year-old daughter to safe...

The Happy Idiot: Exposé of Brand Naming Scams.

It’s called The Happy Idiot because a naming, branding or advertising agency deliberately delivers a name that’s a liability to a smiling client who’s happy with the result. The Happy Idiot was designed to be the fastest, smoothest route to client buy-in on a name, with the least amount of effort by the agency. It came about because someone on the client side will always object to some facet of the most powerful, memorable, effective, interesting, conversation-owning names an agency presents. R...

Our endorsements for Los Angeles County Superior Court

Obscure though the candidates may be to most Los Angeles County citizens, voting for our local California Superior Court judicial seats is one of the most important choices the electorate makes. Unless there is a scandal associated with, or a terribly poor judicial decision made by, a sitting judge, most who want to stay on the bench run unopposed; their names therefore don’t appear on the ballot. That’s the case for dozens of current Superior Court judges in this fall’s election. It’s when judg...
