Die Hard Characters As Dungeons & Dragons Character Alignments

Beyond the storytelling possibilities afforded by its fantastical settings, the key to any "Dungeons & Dragons" campaign is the diverse field of social dynamics that can emerge from just a few different character archetypes -- from rangers and barbarians to rogues and sorcerers -- and the color-wheel spectrum of character alignments any player can draw from its four compass points of Chaotic, Lawful, Good and Evil.And beyond its awesome action sequences, what makes the original "Die Hard" (1988)...

Don’t Be a Victim of the Great Resignation

By now, you’ve likely heard the term “the great resignation.” Anthony Klotz, a professor at Texas A&M University, coined the term in a May Bloomberg article to refer to the great numbers of workers expected to exit the workforce after the pandemic. Klotz does his own research, but a recent Microsoft study, the 2021 Work Trend Index, mirrored his findings. Microsoft surveyed more than 30,000 people in 31 countries and analyzed trillions of productivity and labor signals across LinkedIn and Micros...

Brock Turner 2.0 in New York?: privileged teen receives surprisingly lenient sentence for multiple sex offenses (and now national attention)

Because there are literally tens of thousands of state and federal sentences imposed every month, one can always find an array of notable stories of notable leniency and notable severity in individual sentencings.  But only a handful of sentencing stories ever garner broad national attention, and a variety of predictable and unpredictable factors usually account for what gives certain sentencing stories particular salience.  The case of Stanford swimmer Brock Turner, the 20-year old given only s...

How Feeling Old Could Make You Kinder

When Jen Park was an adolescent growing up in Korea, she was the oldest child in a family with two working parents. She remembers taking on responsibilities that made her feel older than her peers. “I learned to grow up at an early age,” Park explains. “When I was 14, I’d pick my younger brother up from school,” Park says. “I’d be in charge of checking his homework and making sure that he was fed until our parents got home. I’d make ramen for him.” That early experience is one of the things th...

SwipeLingo and Javascript Notebook

I've been working on a couple educational projects since Google, SwipeLingo and Javascript Notebook. SwipeLingo is a quick matching game for touchscreens. Javascript Notebook is a tool for writing coding tutorials, exercises, and examples. I'm unable to fully finish them and get them exactly where I wanted them before starting at Microsoft. But I'm launching anyway in case they or the ideas in them are useful to others. SwipeLingo is a game-with-a-purpose, a quick matching game that is both fun...

Chalk Talk: How Oregon Blocks the Inside Zone

Much has been made of Oregon's ADHD-esque offense since Chip Kelly first arrived as offensive coordinator in 2007. The team's appearance in the national championship last season resulted in countless high schools and colleges attempting to mimic Kelly's breathless no-huddle playcalling. Now, everyone seems to be jumping on the Autzen bandwagon; Miami Heat Head Coach Erik Spoelstra made waves this offseason by flying his entire staff to Eugene to learn more about Kelly's philosophy (apparently Le...

Black and White Friends Want to Talk About Race, But It’s Hard

Conversations about race between Black and white friends can feel uncomfortable, but having these discussions may make the friendship stronger, according to new Stanford research. Researchers found that people view conversations with a friend about race as beneficial—they believe they can lead to better understanding, learning, and closeness. But accompanying these positive expectations is a fear that these conversations could go badly, researchers report in a new paper published recently in th...

Startup harnesses self-supervised learning to tackle speech recognition biases

Speech recognition systems struggle to understand African American Vernacular English (AAVE). In a 2020 study by Stanford University researchers, the software performed so poorly for AAVE that some leading systems made correct transcriptions for barely half the words spoken. The researchers speculated that the systems had a common flaw: “insufficient audio data from Black speakers when training the models.” A startup called Speechmatics has developed a technique that appears to reduce this data ...

New Book Warns CS Mindset and VC Industry are Ignoring Competing Values

So apparently three Stanford professors are offering some tough-love to young people in the tech community. Mehran Sahami first worked at Google when it was still a startup (recruited to the company by Sergey Brin). Currently a Stanford CS professor, Sahami explained in 2019 that "I want students who engage in the endeavor of building technology to think more broadly about what are the implications of the things that they're developing — how do they impact other people? I think we'll all be bett...

Big whales eat 3 times as much as previously thought, which means killing them for food and blubber is even more harmful to the environment

Researchers near Antarctica interact with humpback whales. Duke University Marine Robotics and Remote Sensing under NOAA permit 1 4809 - 03 and ACA permits 2015 - 011 and 2020 - 016 Marine ecosystems were thrown out off-kilter by the mass hunting of big whales. Whales eating krill keep marine life in balance - and now a study found they eat more than thought. The finding means that each individual whale is even more important than people realized. Scientists have found that large whales ea...
