Showing the log and accessing other utilities from the macOS installer | Twocanoes Software
“The macOS installer has gone to a more sleek, black screen. However, sometimes it is helpful to see the installer log and get access to utilities. Check out the video to see how to use the keyboard shortcut command-option-control-w to switch back to the standard macOS installer. Also, get access to a grayed out menu for accessing the Terminal and Disk Utility by holding down command-option-control when selecting the menu items.”

Even with its limited scope, Leaving Neverland is a harrowing watch
“Leaving Neverland is not a Michael Jackson documentary, though the late icon casts a long shadow over the latest from documentary maker Dan Reed, appearing in archival news and tour footage, as well as photos taken with Wade Robson and James Safechuck. It’s Robson and Safechuck who are the primary subjects of Reed’s focus, relating over the four-hour runtime their allegations of sexual abuse against Jackson, whom they first met when they were 5 and 9, respectively.”

Mac Keyboard Layouts for Windows by adunning
“Since the 1980s, Macintosh computers have included a keyboard layout that facilitates the typing of diacritics and other symbols through the use of the Option key. Windows supplies an ‘International’ layout with a limited range of accents, but using this layout makes the quotation mark and apostrophe keys unusable.

“These keyboard layouts fix this situation: one duplicates the standard U.S. layout used on the Mac (also identical to the ‘Canadian English’ keyboard layout), and the other replicates the ‘U.S. Extended’ keyboard layout introduced with Mac OS X. The U.S. Extended provides more accents and places some characters in more logical positions, but the standard Mac layout provides access to a few mathematical symbols that some might find useful. Unlike the Windows layout, these do not change the basic U.S. keyboard.”

“This Python script is intended for converting Mac keyboard layouts to Windows .klc files, the input format for ‘Microsoft Keyboard Layout Creator’ (MSKLC). The resulting .klc files reflect the Mac keyboard layout, and can be used in MSKLC to compile working keyboard layouts for Windows. Should any further modifications be desired, the .klc output files can also be edited with a text editor.”

Type Choice, Political Choice – Typographica
“Dutch Type Library posted a progress report on DTL Prokyon Cyrillic — an extension of the successful, well-drawn DTL Prokyon, designed by Erhard Kaiser. This prompted Erik van Blokland to ask: ‘Still the same designer?’

“The ensuing exchange of tweets confused me a little, but eventually I came to understand: Kaiser is a public supporter of the openly anti-Islamic organization LEGIDA (Leipzig against the Islamization of the Occident).”

“Eric Gill, for the uninitiated, was both a highly accomplished type designer and a rapist who molested his two daughters in their teenage years.”

Set User Info to Brand Your Comments in Word – SciEditor
“Use your business name or moniker if your name is long, like mine, or to remind the team of your business name every time they see one of your comments. Repetition is key to branding and to marketing.

“There are three reasons that setting the user name goes wrong:

“• It only works from this point forward. So it won’t change the ‘Author’ tag on any existing changes. This is handy if you want to preserve others’ changes, but annoying if you only remember to change the name in the middle of your work.
“• The computer’s log in name will be used unless you check the little tick box below the field you entered your name in. You can see the ‘Always use this name/these values regardless of [how I’m] sign[ed] in to Office’ box in the screen grabs above in this post. The wording is slightly different on each operating system just to irk editors.
“• The file is set to ‘remove personal info from this file on save.’ That’s handy for dropping time stamps, but will completely scupper attempts to keep several reviewers’ input separate or to brand your work with your name. More on that in another post.”

Re: screen readers and punctuation from Léonie Watson on 2019-02-13 (w3c-wai-ig@w3.org from January to March 2019)
(Léonie on how screen-reader users interact to hear unusual characters:)
“The short answer is that you can’t write content that works with all screen readers, so it’s better not to try.

“It’s also worth mentioning that the Deque article misses an important point. When it says that screen readers do not announce certain symbols. That is usually only the case when reading content in chunks (like paragraphs or sentences).

“For example, a screen reader may not announce the dash in 5th - 10th May, when reading this sentence as a whole, but it will when reading the text in smaller chunks like one character at a time.

“What tends to happen, is that if a screen reader user senses something doesn’t quite make sense as they read it, they’ll tend to look a little more closely at it. That’s when they find the dash.

“Where a screen reader doesn’t speak an asterisk as a marker for a required field, that can be mitigated in different ways - like using the required attribute on the field in question. This is good practice in any case of course.”

The communication style that destroys relationships—at work and at home — Quartz at Work
“Relationships can hit the rocks for all kinds of reasons. But according to renowned sex therapist Esther Perel, a single factor is a major predictor of whether or not a relationship will survive: whether the couple in question treats one another with contempt.

“In her latest book, State of Affairs: Rethinking Infidelity, Perel asserts that contempt is the biggest killer of relationships. This idea originated with relationship psychologist John Gottman, who created Four Horseman theory—or the four communication styles most likely to indicate a relationship is doomed.

“‘In whatever form, contempt—the worst of the four horsemen—is poisonous to a relationship because it conveys disgust,’ Gottman says. ‘It’s virtually impossible to resolve a problem when your partner is getting the message that you’re disgusted with him or her.’”

“Delete

“When you close an unsaved document in apps that are set up as document based apps, instead of ‘Don’t Save,’ the dialog’s ignore button reads ‘Delete,’ indicating that if you choose not to save or cancel the action, the document will never be written to disk. The shortcut for that button is ⌘⌫ (Command-Delete).”

“Here’s what happened: Instacart guaranteed its workers $10 per delivery, but only made them whole after accounting for customers’ tips. DoorDash had a similar policy.

“The effect was that the more people tipped, the less the companies had to pay out. So customers who thought they were helping to supplement a delivery worker’s meager income were actually just tossing some extra money to their favorite startups’ corporate coffers. That surely helped the cash-bleeding companies’ bottom lines, but drivers protested, urging people to only tip in cash.”

What's The Difference Between USB 3.1 Gen 1 And USB 3.1 Gen 2? | Tom’s Hardware
“The difference between USB 3.1 Gen 1 and USB Gen 2 is as simple as this: Gen 1 offers 5Gbps speeds, whereas Gen 2 offers 10Gbps. Seriously, that’s it.

“To help clarify the two different speeds of USB 3.1 and the various other protocols that can run over USB connectors (eg, Type-A and Type-C), the group created terminology and visual branding. For example, USB 3.1 Gen 1 is ‘SuperSpeed USB,’ and USB 3.1 Gen 2 is ‘SuperSpeed USB+.’

“The industry never really picked up on the nomenclature and branding, so everyone just calls them ‘USB 3.1 Gen 1’ and ‘USB 3.1 Gen 2.’ Often, OEMs will add the speeds (5Gbps and 10Gbps, respectively) to their spec tables as a handy reminder for consumers.”

Ashley Bischoff on Twitter: "Serious question: Is it appropriative for white people to use grammatical constructions or pronunciations from African American English? cc @languagejones @sociologyjones @R_A_Hancock #AAE"
(You had asked—)
“Serious question: Is it appropriative for white people to use grammatical constructions or pronunciations from African American English?”

(And from there, Language Jones replied:)
“I voted it depends, here is the elaboration: AAE is about Speech community, not melanin (or whatever biological markers we use to prop up the fiction of race). There are plenty of non-AA people who speak AAE, and whether it’s OK is about fluency, ‘nativeness,’ and acceptance by their speech community. What bothers me, and I think most other people who speak AAE; is when people who did not grow up speaking it, and who do not interact with the culture, attempt to adopt it as a fashion.

“But I’m very reluctant to say that (to use an example I know of) a white kid raised by working class black parents in North Philly doesn’t get to use the speech of her community and the only way of speaking she knows.

“However, if you’re asking if it is appropriative for a white speaker of a white dialect (because they grew up in white neighborhoods and went to white schools) to use it, then…probably? But it depends on how well they do it and in what context, and how it is received.

“If they’re participating in an AAE speech community, correctly (by the standards of that community), and it’s well received, then maybe it’s fine. But that’s a big risk for anyone who didn’t grow up with AAE.

“I guess what I’m getting at is that it’s up to the AAE Speech community, which is predominantly but not exclusively black, to decide based on actual circumstances, but it’s probably an unwise move for most white people to try to speak AAE if they didn’t grow up with it.”

Can orange juice be consumed past the “best by” date? | Shelf Life Advice
“Yes. If it has been stored unopened in the refrigerator, it will still be good 7-10 days past the ‘best by’ date. If opened before that date, the juice will be safe and tasty for 7 days after opening, if refrigerated. (Write the date you open it on the container.)”

what's the deal with the spike in insulin prices? : OutOfTheLoop
On the skyrocketing price of insulin:
“It’s caused by ‘Shadow Pricing’, mixed with a form of defacto collusion between the drug companies involved. AFAIK there are lawsuits trying to fix the situation.

“Here’s basically what’s happening: There’s an interplay between the retail price you buy insulin for -vs- the wholesale price that insurance companies will negotiate for. The people who do these negotiations are paid a commission based on the size of the saving they have negotiated, which unfortunately means that the higher the original retail price is: the greater the negotiator’s commission will be. Because these negotiators not only negotiate the price, but also end up recommending to the insurer WHICH insulin drug company they should go with - the drug companies figured out that they can influence the negotiator’s desision by raising their RETAIL prices - thus ensuring the negotiator will earn a bigger commission if he chooses their company.”

What Are the Dangers of Out of Date Orange Juice? | Our Everyday Life
“The best-by date on orange juice indicates quality, not safety. If your orange juice is stored in the refrigerator unopened, you can safely go up to seven days beyond the expiration date with no ill effects.

“However, you should drink opened orange juice within seven days of opening it, regardless of the expiration date.”

Supplements/Vitamins for Restless Leg Syndrome | ConsumerLab.com
“People with deficient or low blood levels of iron are also more likely to experience RLS. As discussed in more detail in the ‘What It Does’ section of the Iron Supplements Review, a study found that taking a combination of high-dose iron and vitamin C (which helps to increase iron absorption) can decrease symptom severity in people whose blood levels of iron are low. However, it’s important to consult your physician before supplementing with iron for RLS.

“As discussed in the ‘What It Does’ section of the Magnesium Supplements Review, a preliminary study suggested that taking magnesium in the evening could be helpful for RLS; however, there have not been large, well-controlled studies investigating this treatment.

“Similarly, as discussed in the ‘What It Does’ section of the Potassium Supplements Review, one preliminary study suggested that potassium may help reduce the severity of RLS symptoms, but no well-controlled studies have been conducted to prove this.

“As discussed in our Encyclopedia article about Restless Legs Syndrome, there is very preliminary evidence that folate and vitamin E might be helpful.”

Painfully slow Time Machine backup. | MacRumors Forums
“So, I just found out about 2 Mac commands that seem to have made a pretty big difference:

“sudo sysctl debug.lowpri_throttle_enabled=0

“and

“sudo renice -n -20 -p #### (I had to use: ps -ax | grep TimeMachine to find the -p value)

“This has, after my system idles, taken my time machine backup from 18 hours (for 3.63GB) to 1-2 hours remaining. It starts counting up if I actually use the MacBook tho.”

Dried Apricots | Bon Appetit
(Conclusion: Unsulphured dried apricots are the way to go.)
“There are two main varieties of dried apricots available: sulphured and unsulphured. Sulphured dried apricots, the most common, are preserved with sulphur dioxide, which not only extends the shelf life but also lightens the color and keeps the dried fruit soft. Unsulphured and organic fruit is darker and sweeter. Look for unsulphured dried apricots in natural foods stores.”
