2021.11.30 21:38 khalifaziz What to Do With Maulana Karenga
TL;DR - Too many people try to degrade Kwanzaa and the overall PanAfrican movement because of Karenga. I suggest that, rather than act like nothing ever happened or erase Karenga and his crimes from Kwanzaa, we make a concentrated effort every year to make discussion of his crimes and abuse in general a key part of Kwanzaa celebrations.
Kwanzaa's coming up--my second favorite holiday to Halloween--and this year I'm more interested in Karenga's crimes than I ever have been before.
For those unaware, in 1971, Maulana Karenga, the creator of Kwanzaa, was convicted for torturing two women that were part of his US Organization who he believed were trying to poison him. During these legal proceedings, his own wife testified against him affirming that he instructed her to sit on a woman to prevent her from resisting. He served 10 years for his crime, but claimed that it was a set up and that he was a political prisoner. Nowadays, he won't even address the incident publicly (which, I think it's fine to want to get on with your life...after you accept responsibility and done work to help your victims). It's unquestionable that he committed an awful crime against Black women who were his comrades, and I think that's generally accepted by the vast majority of the pan-African community.
So why do I celebrate Kwanzaa despite that, and why do I still encourage other Black people to do so? Because I think that Kwanzaa serves an important role in our communities by reaffirming a shared African struggle and heritage. I think Kwanzaa as a holiday is overall good, but nothing about it's themes and principles reinforce rape culture, misogyny, or any other toxic cultural ideology which would justify Karenga's abuse.
That said, I cannot criticize any Black person that, as an individual, backs away from Kwanzaa because of Karenga's crimes. Karenga did an awful thing, and we cannot just ignore that. We have to address it, because other people will address it for us, and from my experience, those people do not respect Kwanzaa, the people who celebrate it, the communities that are serviced by it or our collective political struggle. It's to the point that when I see Karenga's crimes being brought up, I reflexively prepare myself for the anti-kwanzaa, anti-panafrican, anti-black vitrol that's about to come with it.
I believe that in order to truly attain unity among the people, we have to take a clear stance and show that this type of behavior is not tolerated or celebrated. I know that most kwanzaa celebrations today (despite complete fabrications made up by conservatives) do not celebrate kwanzaa in anyway, but I also think erasing the issue is just as bad as continuing to pour libations out to Karenga. What we ignore is what we're willing to tolerate, what we address is what we're trying to fix. And for that reason, I think that discussion of Karenga's crimes must be included in every Kwanzaa celebration on day one.
Every Umoja, when we tell the history of Kwanzaa as a holiday created in the PanAfrican movement to promote Black unity, we need to add that it was created by Maulana Karenga, a man who tortured our sisters Deborah Jones and Gail Davis. If we must honor people, let's honor Karenga's victims. Let's honor Makinya Sibeko-Kouate, our ancestor who helped promote the holiday across the Black community. Let's have open dialogues about misogyny and abuse in our communal and personal celebrations so that we not only know how to prevent anything like this from happening again, but also to reassure any in our collective family who's wary on Kwanzaa that we are not in the business of facilitating, encouraging, excusing, or erasing abuse.
Because if we don't tell it, someone else will. If we don't condemn abuse in our communities, someone else will. If Black people do not turn to us, they'll turn to someone else. Anything short of clear condemnations of Karenga and men like him fundamentally jeopardizes the unity that we try to encourage through celebration of Kwanzaa and practice of the Nguzo Saba.

2021.11.30 21:38 super_code What book(s) would you suggest as a follow-up to Immune?
I’m really enjoying Immune so far! Also learning so much. I’m nearing the end of the book and would love to hear recommendations on what you all suggest would be good follow-up books that dive deeper into the immune system, or tackle more advanced explanations of concepts touched upon in the book. Above all, I want to reinforce everything I’ve been reading and build upon it!
One such book I have on my list is The Emperor of All Maladies by Mukherjee. Any other suggestions?

How do you clean new glassware before you use it? Just really hot water? Boil it? Put it in the oven for a while? We just got me a borosilicate glass mini bubbler and I want to clean it before I use it because who knows who touched it or sucked on it or whatever before packaging it up.

2021.11.30 21:38 captainAwesomePants Advent of Code: A suggestion for advanced learners
Sometimes I see posts along the lines of "I've gotten pretty good at
This is my second year in a row of recommending Advent of Code. It's a free contest/event that releases one new problem each night (midnight EST, 9 PM Pacific), starting tonight and running until the 25th. The problems usually involve reading in a text file, processing it in some manner, and then generating a short solution that is submitted to the site. The problems start small but significantly escalate over the course of the advent. The first 100 people to submit an answer each night get points, but those folks are demons and I don't suggest worrying about that aspect of the event at all.
It's a huge event. Over a quarter million programmers have solved at least one problem. I am in no way associated with it, but I'm an enthusiastic fan.
Why you should DEFINITELY NOT do this as a beginner or even intermediate learner
These problems are, frankly, very hard. By the end of the competition, there are problems that will take extremely competitive speed coders multiple hours, and there are problems that many skilled professionals will simply be unable to solve without help in the community. I consider myself to be fairly strong at solving algorithmic coding problems pretty quickly, and there was at least one problem last year I had no clue how to approach (the solution involved modular multiplicative inverses). Even the first problem of the year is almost certainly too hard for someone who's not very comfortable working with, say, hash tables. If you're not sure whether you're ready, try doing Day 1 of any year (years before 2020 remain available to complete forever), but don't feel at all bad if you have trouble with it. These problems are absolutely not meant for folks in their first few months of learning to program.
Why you should consider this as a more advanced student
Solving these problems are hard and are usually designed to strongly steer you to some specific technique. It might be memoization. It might be a fancy queue structure. Maybe a breadth-first-search with some bizarre caveat. You are almost guaranteed to run into some techniques you've never used before. Every day there's a huge community of folks over at adventofcode who will be discussing each problem the next day, helping people with through the problem and providing example solutions in a wide variety of languages. Reading through those explanations and seeing how other talented programmers write very different solutions to a problem you've just solved can be immensely educational. You'll almost certainly pick up some tricks in whatever language you're using to solve the problems, or you'll see ways to express yourself in code more elegantly.
Stuff To Know
It's at www.adventofcode.com. There's an unaffiliated subreddit at adventofcode.
There's a new problem every night, starting tonight at midnight EST.
There's no time limit. You can do the problems the next day or the next year. You could start last year's problems today, if you like, but it's fun to work through them the night they're released with the crowd.
There's a leaderboard, but it will be dominated by people who are basically professionally competitive programmers. Ignore it. By the time you're done with a problem, somebody will probably have written an interactive 3D visualization explaining the solution. Don't let that bother you, but definitely do read other people's solutions. You will see some great code.

2021.11.30 21:38 canyou-digit Bespoke suit for $1200?
So I'm getting married next year and decided I would treat myself to a bespoke garment special for the occasion. I got online to find a local tailor and I came across one not too far from my city. They claim to offer 'bespoke' suits for less than $1200. How is this possible? Are they cutting corners?
