The Chinese Factory Workers Who Write Poems on Their Phones | Literary Hub
I swallowed an iron moon
they called it a screw

I swallowed industrial wastewater and unemployment forms
bent over machines, our youth died young

I swallowed labor, I swallowed poverty
swallowed pedestrian bridges, swallowed this rusted-out life

I can’t swallow any more
everything I’ve swallowed roils up in my throat

I spread across my country
a poem of shame

Excel Resources
Suffolkmaths Homepage

Enhancing the Teaching of Mathematics

These resources have been compiled as a result of a group of teachers getting together led by Charlie Dawson (HoD @ Northgate High)

Excel is a much under used resource and in particular it can be used for modelling a wide range of situations including statistical graphs, reflection, statistical experiments, sampling for coursework, investigating quadratics, simulating projectiles and number puzzles amongst many others. The following files are designed to inspire and to provide a starting point, they are a resource and not part of a lesson plan, how you use them is up to you. Some of the files require you to press the F9 key to generate new data.

WordPress & Accessibility: Just where is the problem? - Joe Dolson Accessible Web Design
Content sliders or, “the UI of the devil”
Content sliders, or carousels, or whatever you choose to call them, are universally bad for usability and for accessibility. There are ways of making them “accessible” (and I put that in quotes intentionally), but they’re essentially just a horrible way of communicating information – so the best case scenario is still a bad experience. Yes, you can make it accessible – but the key to making a content slider accessible is to ensure two things: first, that the content is available to the user, and second, that it isn’t forced on them. Because, like most visitors to your site, people with disabilities don’t want to look at the content in your slider.

Adding shortcode button to TinyMCE editor – Made by Denis
Continuing on the TinyMCE post I made earlier, I want to show you how to add a button on the TinyMCE editor for your custom shortcode. Idea for this came when I created a team member shortcode for a client. He needed a small and simple shortcode that will show image, title, some content and a link to a page or to some outside content. This is a trivial thing to do, but later on I had to explain to him how to use it, and I realized that adding shortcode via shortcode tags

Internet Noise
On March 29th congress passed a law that makes it legal for your Internet Service Providers (ISP) to track and sell your personal activity online. This means that things you search for, buy, read, and say can be collected by corporations and used against you.

Click this button, and your browser will start passively loading random sites in browser tabs. Leave it running to fill their databases with noise. Just quit your browser when you're done.

Squishy Circuits | The Tinkering Studio
Use homemade conductive and resistant play-doh to build electronic sculptures that light up, move, and make sounds. Anyone who has ever tasted play-doh knows that it’s a salty substance. The salt allows electricity to flow through the dough. With the addition of a homemade dough that substitutes sugar for salt, the dough becomes resistive instead, and complex circuits can be created to power all kinds of objects. We use battery packs, LED lights, hobby motors, and buzzers to explore electricity in a fun, hands-on

500 Error on wp-admin after upgrade – Bionic Teaching
This happened with one of our individual installs and it’s happened before (but I forgot the solution) so I’m writing it down.

After the upgrade to 4.7.1, the front of the sight still worked but attempts to get to wp-admin failed with a 500 error and the URL was redirecting to something with upgrade.php? in the URL.

Change the name of the plugin folder (I just prepend an underscore).
Revisit your login URL.
Run the database upgrade as prompted.
You should now be in the admin zone.
Fix your plugin folder name.

Easy but also easy to forget.

Create a hardened Raspberry Pi NAS
In this tutorial we'll convert a stock Raspbian Lite OS into a NAS with two 320GB Western Digital Pi Drives in a RAID-1 array. We'll then look at whether that improves performance for I/O intensive tasks such as pulling a Docker image down from the public registry.
