We had strong winds during our afternoon walk yesterday but they got worse soon after we finished. A lot of dust in the air with most of the mountains hidden by blowing dirt. The forecast is for it to be worse today with winds in the 20-30 range and gust of 40mph.
It is blowing in some cold weather with the high tomorrow expected to be 50° and Wednesday a high of 64° after freezing in the morning. I think winter has come in with a vengeance.
I made a BIG breakthrough in the effort to write PHP code for the blood pressure page last night. I still have a long way to go but I think I’m now on the right track. The problem: how to write code that would select the data from a specified number of rows counting back from the most recent row entered. That seems rather simple but there is NOTHING simple in the coding world.
If there was any reason to NOT vote for Biden this is probably the best example I can present. The man does not understand the real world; he has lived his entire life in the Washington D C bubble. I am a reasonably intelligent, educated individual and I sure in hell can NOT learn to program easily. There are probably a few coal miners that could learn to program but there are not a lot of them and they certainly can NOT transition easily into programming jobs.
The former vice president told an audience in Derry, New Hampshire [30 December 2019], that coal miners could easily transition into programming jobs. “Anybody who can go down 300 to 3,000 feet in a mine, sure in hell can learn to program as well, but we don’t think of it that way,” he said.‐Biden Suggests Coal Miners Learn to Code To Be Prepared for ‘Jobs of the Future’ , James Crowley
Do you remember Jill Stein? She was the Green Party presidential candidate in 2016 and got a lot of national media coverage. Do you know who Howie Hawkins is? He is the Green Party’s 2020 presidential candidate and has received virtually no media coverage. In fact his media coverage is on par with the coverage that Jo Jorgensen the Libertarian Party presidential candidate has received. You don’t know who she is either? I’m surprised ‐ not.
The United States one party with two heads has had a lock on the media coverage this election cycle. Perhaps the lack of coverage for these two candidates that are not in the ‘club’ is for the reason that they will most likely take votes from Biden rather than Trump.
