nature.com -- After an eight-year struggle, embattled Japanese mathematician Shinichi Mochizuki has finally received some validation. His 600-page proof of the abc conjecture, one of the biggest open problems in number theory, has been accepted for publication.
Acceptance of the work in Publications of the Research Institute for Mathematical Sciences (RIMS) — a journal of which Mochizuki is chief editor, published by the institute where he works at Kyoto University — is the latest development in a long and acrimonious controversy over the mathematicians' proof.

Кстати

Американцы гораздо лучше других подготовлены к карантину по ОРВИ. Потому что идея перераспределить всё имеющееся и будущее богатство на фантазии медицины давно не является чем-то новым. Тут ведь ровно так и живут уже лет восемьдесят. "Здоровых людей слушать не надо -- вот пусть сперва заболеют чем-нибудь серьёзным, а уж потом раскрывают рты." Поэтому с математической точки зрения изменилось очень мало: можно просто считать, что обязательная медицинская "страховка" ещё немного подорожала. Ну, у некоторых до размера 100% зарплаты. Ничего особенного.
Вот в других странах должно быть обиднее.

Социальная изоляция работает

theguaridan.com -- An unprecedented number of Americans have resorted to food banks for emergency supplies since the coronavirus pandemic triggered widespread layoffs across the country. The demand for food aid has increased as much as eightfold in some areas, according to an investigation by the Guardian, which gives a nationwide snapshot of the hunger crisis facing the US as millions become unemployed. About one in three people seeking groceries at not-for-profit pantries last month had never previously needed emergency food aid, according to interviews with a dozen providers across the country.

cnbc.com -- The torrent of Americans filing for unemployment insurance skyrocketed last week as more than 6.6 million new claims were filed, the Labor Department reported Thursday. Economists surveyed by Dow Jones had expected 3.1 million for last week, one week after 3.3 million filings in the first wave of what has been a record-shattering swelling of the jobless ranks.
