Madrid (CNN) -- Former Catalan President Carles Puigdemont was arrested on the Italian island of Sardinia on Thursday on charges related to his activities in Catalonia's failed bid in 2017 to secede from Spain, a court official and his lawyer told CNN. Puigdemont has been living in Belgium the past four years and faced arrest if he returned to Spain.

alphanews.org -- One activity in the curriculum directs a male student to pretend his name is “Morgan,” a boy who is “very active” in his school’s LGBTQ club, while another student pretends to be “Terence,” a closet homosexual who wants to have sex with Morgan. In this scenario, Morgan plans a secret rendezvous and the two role-playing students are asked to “make a decision about whether to have sex.”
Я думаю, обязательно надо. Но ещё лучше - с учителем физкультуры.

Самый ад у них на телевидении

thedailybeast.com -- Sinclair Broadcasting executives apologized after anchors at one of its stations in Arkansas wore afro wigs during a newscast last week to invoke “the 70s.” KATV anchor Chris May and meteorologist Barry Brandt donned the wigs on camera last Thursday as they spoke of a cold front moving through their area. The station held a Zoom meeting Wednesday to discuss the incident as well as racism in the news business. A regional manager for Sinclair, John Seabers, previously issued a separate apology, calling the incident “abhorrent” and “juvenile.” In the Zoom meeting, Seabers said the network had taken “significant” disciplinary action against those involved and implored concerned viewers, including one Black activist who had written a letter expressing her disappointment, to “give me a chance.”

2008 год, birdwatcher: Можно, наверное, построить операционную систему, в которой и вордовские документы будут известны не названиями своих файлов, а на основе различных независимых классификаций (кто автор, на какую тему текст, к какому жанру относится, как озаглавлен). При этом сам файл будет на компьютере не в каком-то известном вам каталоге, а "вообще". Для переноса текста с одного компьютера на другой эти два компьютера надо будет частично синхронизировать согласно некоторому правилу. Ничего, поругаются и привыкнут.

2021 год, theverge.com: Catherine Garland, an astrophysicist, started seeing the problem in 2017. She was teaching an engineering course, and her students were using simulation software to model turbines for jet engines. She’d laid out the assignment clearly, but student after student was calling her over for help. They were all getting the same error message: The program couldn’t find their files.
Garland thought it would be an easy fix. She asked each student where they’d saved their project. Could they be on the desktop? Perhaps in the shared drive? But over and over, she was met with confusion. “What are you talking about?” multiple students inquired. Not only did they not know where their files were saved — they didn’t understand the question (навёл dubomir).

Please give a good listen to these selections. Be able to compare and contrast the styles. Which regional style had more impact on jazz? Which regional style had more impact on Rock and Pop? Be able to discuss each artist.

Мне из этого больше всего понравились чикагский Bassology и канзасский I Left My Baby.
