di Stefano: "Kuay tiew nam tok moo, Pata Paplean
On weekend afternoons this funky little bar on a stretch of Woodside Avenue that’s fast becoming a little Thailand serves up some of the best street food around. Of the three noodle soups the most offal rich is kuay tiew nam tok moo, a darkish bowl that gets much of its color and flavor from pork blood. Topped with pork crackling and enriched with bits of liver and fatty pork it makes for an invigorating light lunch. "

Current Regional Drought Worst in Recorded History
8/10/18 - ... The big news is that the years between 2012 and 2018 have now surpassed the county’s previous worst drought in terms of intensity and dryness. “We now have a new drought of record,” declared Tom Fayram, Santa Barbara County’s deputy Public Works director. Translated, that means the current drought will be the yardstick against which all past and future droughts are measured. It’s what current and future water planners must conjure with when crafting projections of long-term water supplies. Barring any sudden downpours between now and September 1 — the beginning of the next water year — Gibraltar Reservoir has received 102.96 inches of rain. The worst recorded drought prior, between 1945 and 1951, saw 117.85 inches fall. By contrast, the most recent drought, between 1984 and 1990, recorded rainfalls of 129.66 inches.

Ryanair pilot strike grounds nearly 400 flights, stranding vacationers
Ryanair pilot strike grounds nearly 400 flights, stranding vacationers across Europe https://ift.tt/2vys6Jk Prospective https://ift.tt/2AWpsSY August 10, 2018 at 05:18PM

Ryanair has found a new way to muck up your vacation plans. Pilots at the the notoriously no-frills airline have gone on strike, grounding nearly 400 flights—one in six—and stranding would-be vacationers across Europe.

The strike comes as the pilots lobby for higher wages, which Ryanair does not want to pay, because it could require the airline to raise fares in the highly competitive European market. Plus, according to CNN, Ryanair thinks it pays pilots plenty, and even posted payslips on its website to prove its generous wages.

The pilots, however, disagree (and perhaps didn’t look too kindly to having their pay stubs posted online). Ryanair pilots in Ireland, Germany, Sweden, Belgium, and the Netherlands kicked off a 24-hour walkout over pay and conditions, leaving 396 flights canceled at the height of vacation season and resulting in possibly more than 74,000 passengers scrambling for new flights.

Per The Guardian Ryanair said that more than 340 (14%) of its flights were delayed on Wednesday due to staff shortages in France, Spain, Greece, the UK, and Austria.

The strikes are just the latest sign of strife between Ryanair and the trade unions that it just officially recognized in December—despite Ryanair CEO Michael O’Leary previously saying he would “rather cut off his hands than agree to union recognition.” However, the airline hasn’t responded to the workers’ concerns, which has led to strikes rolling across Europe, including cabin crew and pilots’ strikes over the last few weeks.

Ryanair is trying to find a silver lining in the situation, telling The Guardian: “More than 2,000 Ryanair flights (85% of our schedule) will operate as normal today, carrying almost 400,000 customers across Europe.” The rest of the customers will spend their vacation time waiting on hold with the airline.

#ryanair cancelled my flight in the last min because of pilots strike. They offer me to change my tickets online which it’s not possible because of their system crash. Noone is on the phone and livechat. They even don’t do a refund. Ryanair is an headache pic.twitter.com/JXdHjSiMru

Why is it still so hard to find women CEOs on Google Images?
Why is it still so hard to find women CEOs on Google Images? https://ift.tt/2AWplqw Prospective https://ift.tt/2vys04q August 10, 2018 at 05:17PM

“You can’t be what you can’t see,” Marie Wilson of the White House Project said back in 2010. According to a new study, Google Images may not be helping to improve the situation.

AdView analyzed employment data to determine the number of women in various jobs (baker, call center worker, CEO) and then calculated the number of women who showed up in Google Image search results for the same roles. While women make up about 28% of chief executives (at least according to data from the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics), they only made up 11% of the CEOs that show up in a Google Image search, according to AdView. (When we tried the search, at least one of those “CEOs” was Gal Gadot, who is a Wonder Woman, but not a CEO as far as we know.)

Granted, Google Image search results are not frozen in time (they change based on things like the news cycle, for instance), but the lack of women CEOs in these results raises important questions about the lack of representation of women leaders in media, and how that relates to their lack of representation in the real world.

The number of women in chief executive roles at major companies actually declined 25% this year, according to Fortune’s 2018 list of female CEOs of Fortune 500 companies. There were 24 women, down from 32 the year before. Part of the reason there are so few women in those roles, is that women are 18% less likely to be promoted to manager than their male peers. Perhaps more women—and men—need to be reminded that women are CEO material, too. And that’s something Google Images could help with by changing the perception of CEOs to include more women in search results.

Reached for comment, a Google spokesperson did not provide an on-the-record statement about the study.

CSS exclusions with Queen Bey
Here’s my attempt at demonstrating the different values of `wrap-flow` and `wrap-through` via a recreation of an interview Beyoncé did with ELLE back in 2016 when launching her Ivy Park line (I think). If you would like to try building something with exclusions, you’ll have to use either Edge or Internet Explorer 10 and up, and prefix the properties with `-ms-`.
