The Problem With Our Democracy Isn't Gerrymandering. It's Integers

As everyone knows, the U.S. Congress has grown increasingly un-representative. We have states where the population is evenly split among Democrats and Republications, but where–thanks to partisan gerrymandering–the number of House members is grossly skewed in favor of one party. Even without gerrymandering, voters for the losing side in many House districts feel, justifiably, that they have no representation in Congress.

Home - Open Collective

Open Collective logo

While the Internet has been very good so far at helping people do things together, it is still very difficult for groups to collect money and use it transparently. As a result, we see initiatives, projects, movements popping up here and there that disappear quickly from lack of funding. Imagine how many wonderful things don’t happen in the world because funding - which is oxygen for most organizations - is difficult to sustain.

We Are All Paying the Price for America’s Reckless War Spending | The Nation

Marine walks in Afghanistan

In the name of the fight against terrorism, the United States is currently waging “credit-card wars” in Afghanistan, Iraq, Syria, and elsewhere. Never before has this country relied so heavily on deficit spending to pay for its conflicts. The consequences are expected to be ruinous for the long-term fiscal health of the United States, but they go far beyond the economic. Massive levels of war-related debt will have lasting repercussions of all sorts...

The nations of the world committed to slashing carbon emissions at the COP21 summit in Paris last month, and now cities and communities must figure out how to actually do that.

cockpit dashboard

Some JavaScript (ECMAScript) features are easier to understand than others. Generators look weird — like pointers in C/C++. Symbols manage to look like both primitives and objects at the same time.

So in this article, I’ll cover symbols,global symbols,iterators, iterables, generators , async/await and async iterators. I’ll explain “why” they are there in the first place and also show how they work with some useful examples.
