🌟 [Post of The Day] Naomi Parkhurst
Naomi Parkhurst, a knitting designer.
Then I turn the numbers into black and white square emoji using a script in BBEdit on iMac
For rough draft design work,
I sometimes draw in my graph paper noteworks before knitting, and
sometimes take notes in the notebook while designing on the needles.
I make my final knitting charts in StitchMastery, software that creates knitting charts, checks to make sure the stitch counts work from row to row, and that exports written instructions.
I edit the charts in Affinity Designer.
I edit the written instructions in BBEdit or Textastic to make them fit my personal stylesheet and
add HTML formatting before posting the final results on my blog or putting them into a design to be published.
The headline, which, notably, came from Japan’s hard-right, anti-China Sankei newspaper, was: 「中国よ、消えうせやがれ」 フィリピン外相、“禁句”使って怒り爆発
Locsin [Philippines’ foreign minister] was responding to Chinese incursions into the Philippines’ territorial waters.
a compound of three verbs: “kie-use-yagare.”
The first two verbal stems are synonyms meaning “disappear,”
though the contemporary uses of use(ru) tend toward the rude, i.e., “Get lost!” as command
rather than simply get lost because you’re not in GPS range.
Semantically, then, the imperative kieusero would be enough to convey the meaning of “get out!” and perhaps even “get the fuck out.”
The addition of やがる (yagaru) is important
It is as rude as Japanese gets. It is perhaps best thought of as indicating mood or mode rather than meaning.
And that mood ranges from disdain to hatred. It is the suffix you use to describe the actions of someone you actively despise.
Zoom had somehow been able to tap into using the camera during iPad Split View multitasking.
[Zoom] revealed an apparently private process, available only to those deemed worthy by Apple.
Apple seems to be sharing the data with a third-party data broker.
For Facebook, even if it uses the IDFA, Apple considers that tracking.
if an ad leads you to purchase an app, and that app can report the same IDFA to Facebook, that proves that you purchased the app.
Apple gets around this without “tracking” because it controls the App Store app, which is the only way to purchase apps.
While Kindles will work with Overdrive, it’s a circuitous process.
The reason Microsoft cut its commission on games in the Windows Store but not on Xbox isn’t because Xbox has a different business model.
Microsoft would be a lot more likely to lower its commission on Xbox games in its own Xbox store if they also allowed alternative app stores or subscription game-streaming services on Xbox
Just because most companies make no money selling razors but reap profits by selling blades at high margins
doesn’t mean a company that does sell its razors for a profit is legally or even ethically obligated to sell its blades for lower margins.
Sonova, a Swiss company best known for its medical audio products like hearing aids and cochlear implants, is buying the consumer electronics division of German firm Sennheiser.
Sennheiser announced it was looking for a buyer for its consumer business in mid-February “amid strong competitive pressure.”
In a joint statement by Sennheiser’s co-CEOs, brothers Andreas and Daniel Sennheiser, the pair said they “couldn’t have asked for [a] better” partner.
In an announcement of the deal from Sonova, the company said it will continue to sell products under the Sennheiser brand.
the purchase price of the division amounts to €200 million ($241 million)
Sennheiser’s business generates revenues of €250 million annually.
The deal is still subject to regulatory approval
expects to close it in “the second half of calendar year 2021.”
