  1. Three intense TypeScript workshop days with @deadparrot. It was an absolute blast, learned a lot, especially about Generics. Thank you!

    Leah Rothstein in an interview by Aaron Sankon, “The Government Segregated America. Here’s How Everyday People Desegregate It”:

    One strategy that some communities and a few states have already adopted, and which several others are considering, is changing zoning law. That is a locally controlled policy. Often, these exclusive communities are zoned only to allow for single-family homes to be built in them. It’s called exclusionary zoning. It took the place of race-based zoning when that was outlawed. By ensuring these communities only allow single-family homes, often on large lots, it limits the amount of housing that can be built in that community. It ensures that the only housing there will be expensive—unaffordable to low-income families and moderate-income families that don’t have intergenerational wealth to pay for a down payment.

  3. Adding specific links as home screen icon (and not the main page) on iOS is pretty cumbersome. As pointed out by the user “Schlickenstein” from the Apple Support Community, this is the way:

    1. Copy desired URL.
    2. Turn airplane mode on.
    3. Go back to Safari and navigate to copied URL
    4. After loading fails, click the sharing button and choose the option “Add to Home Screen” as normal.

    Wow.

    Lily Sánchez on why we should be working less:

    I can say with certainty that working 30 hours straight didn’t teach me all that much about how to take care of patients or about the meaning of “hard work,” but it did teach me how horrible it feels to be awake for 30 hours without sleep or rest, which I don’t recommend to anyone.

    Alex Skopic about the man that is Ron DeSantis.

    Examining the life and career of Ron DeSantis, whose record of supervising torture and stifling free speech mean he should be kept far, far away from executive power.

    Vanessa Graßnickel, chief physician of a rehab clinic, in an interview with SZ Magazin:

    Bier oder Wein sind nicht gesund, und je hochprozentiger der Alkohol, desto gefährlicher ist er. Spirituosen wirken sehr aggressiv auf die Schleimhaut und können in der Speiseröhre Schäden verursachen. Aber guten Alkohol gibt es nicht. Manche Patienten sagen mir: »Ich trinke doch nur Bier und Wein, nichts Hochprozentiges!« Aber deshalb sind sie ja nicht weniger abhängig. Oder es heißt: »Ich trinke jeden Tag nur Weinschorle«, in der Hoffnung, dass verdünnter Alkohol weniger schlimm sei.

    Today the search element landed in the HTML spec
    (and subsequently the ARIA in HTML and HTML AAM specs too)

    but hey, maybe reading/keeping track of specs is not how you spend your time.

    Good for you, btw.

    So here's a quick intro to the search element

    Thanks for the intro, interesting read!
