Princeton’s Classics Department Dropping The Latin And Greek Requirement May Not Be A Disaster After All

Graeme Wood, who studied both languages himself, talked with a Princeton professor (who did not wish to be named) who says that the department expects no drop in the actual number of students who study Latin and Greek — but that there may be majors who don’t need to learn the languages, just as not all English majors need to learn Anglo-Saxon. – The Atlantic

Princeton Drops Latin And Greek Requirements For Classics Study

“The policy change at Princeton presumes the existence of various potential contributions that classics students knowing no Latin or Greek could have been making to classroom discussions before now. What are those contributions?” – The Atlantic

Dale Ann Bradley of Pineville Kentucky

Dale Ann Bradley hails from Pineville, Bell County Kentucky, where my father was born and raised until he ran away from home (for the last time) at age 14. My father never graduated from High School, got his GED  the Air Force, went to Princeton, met my mother, joined the U.S. foreign service, taught himself two languages and three instruments, drove a Bentley, and gave a square mile of land to help protect Bell County's Blanton Forest.  A remarkable man. Not much comes out of Pinevil...

The real-life story of a teen turned insider who worked with Bob Dylan, George Harrison and Rolling Stones

Jonathan Taplin had just graduated from high school in 1965 when fate delivered him backstage at the Newport Folk Festival on the weekend Bob Dylan plugged in his electric guitar and turned the worlds of folk music and rock ‘n’ roll upside down. Taplin didn’t know it, but his life would change as well, as his new memoir, “The Magic Years: Scenes From a Rock-and-Roll Life,” describes. In time, Taplin would work as road manager for Dylan, the Band and Judy Collins among others. He produced George ...

Justice Sotomayor: Americans need to take critical look at policing

By JESSICA GRESKO | Associated Press WASHINGTON — As communities nationwide are re-examining law enforcement practices, Supreme Court Justice Sonia Sotomayor says Americans should think critically about how they want police to interact with citizens. Sotomayor said that what “we as a society accept in the name of justice” is an “incredibly important topic of discussion.” And, she said, “it’s one that people should not discuss or think they need to discuss as a ’Do I respect the police or not?’ I...

Father and son duo take on global logistics with Optimal Dynamics’ sequential decision AI platform

Like “innovation,” machine learning and artificial intelligence are commonplace terms that provide very little context for what they actually signify. AI/ML spans dozens of different fields of research, covering all kinds of different problems and alternative and often incompatible ways to solve them. One robust area of research here that has antecedents going back to the mid-20th century is what is known as stochastic optimization — decision-making under uncertainty where an entity wants to opt...

The Cicadas Return After 17 Years: Stunning Footage of the Brood X Cicadas

Sing, fly, mate, die. The periodical cicadas in Brood X are emerging from underground, where they have spent the last 17 years as nymphs. They are making the final climb of their lives, intent on escaping their carapaces in order to make more cicadas. And as always they are doing it en masse. Once free, they must quickly get the hang of their brand new wings, and make for the trees, where the males will sing (some say scream) in a bid for females with whom to mate. The pregnant females dril...

US Patent Number 11,000,000

The Grim, Open Secret Of College Bone Collections

In recent weeks, revelations that both Princeton and the University of Pennsylvania used the bones of teenaged victims of the city of Philadelphia’s bombing of a house in 1985 have shook the world outside of college forensic anthropology. But inside those worlds? It’s not a surprise that the bones of Black children would be used for teaching. “Museums and universities’ brutal habit of collecting human remains without family consent, proper identification, or public knowledge is far from a relic...

You Jump, I Jump: The Perils of Over-Identifying With a Client

Over-identifying with a client can impair objective representation.

The second one is that “lawyers should strive to remain objective at all times” and should not “over-identify with clients or be unduly influenced by the emotions of the moment.” In the midst of doing some research recently, I did a search on CanLII of professional mis...

Exploiting non-line-of-sight paths for terahertz signals in wireless communications

After developing a link discovery method in 2020 using terahertz radiation, Brown and Princeton researchers addressed what would happen if a wall or other reflector creates a non-line-of-sight path from the base station to the receiver. In APL Photonics, they consider two different generic types of transmitters and explore how their characteristics can be used to determine whether an NLOS path contributes to the signal received by the receiver.

mac mini 2014

Just ordered a refurbished mac mini 2014, 1 TB hard drive and 8 GB memory on Amazon. $400 isn't a bad price. You may ask why a 2014 mac mini. I'll tell you (extra points if you catch the reference). 2014 is the most recent mac mini that runs Sierra which is the last version of Mac OS that certain tools I use work with. This is to replace a mac mini that isn't 64 bit compatible, so it will only go up to El Capitan. So the faster machine with a 1 GB Ethernet and 64 bit should be a lot faster...
