* expr() is a precedence-climbing expression parser
* stmt() parses statements and generates code
* main() has the virtual machine loop.

a look into how aesthetic tribalism imposes "conformity on otherwise diverse ecologies" and "undercuts the search for common ground". Tribalism isn't a case of "relationships indicating similar interests" but "makes us regard compatibilities as incompatible".

Microservices adoption anti-patterns - microservices are a magic pixie dust
"First, you need understand the underlying root causes for your software delivery issues. Is it your development and deployment process? Your organization? Or perhaps your monolith has outgrown its architecture. Second, you need to understand the problems that the microservice architecture addresses."

Searching for Black Thought in White Antifascism
a review of Natasha Lennard's Being Numerous, a collection of essays about fascism.
"fascism is a material coalescence of ideas and ideologies that order and dictate behavior to maintain a dominant, dominating social order."
"Lennard doesn’t appropriately centralize the primacy of enduring colonial violence in her description of the evolution of carcerality—and of fascism itself."

How False Beliefs in Physical Racial Difference Still Live in Medicine Today - The New York Times
"The centuries-old belief in racial differences in physiology has continued to mask the brutal effects of discrimination and structural inequities

1977 epidemic of Influenza A/USSR/90/77 (H1N1)
"It hit children and people under 25 the hardest, which is unusual. The RNA of the virus was identical to an influenza that appeared shortly after WWII. A 30 year old influenza strain can't spontaneously reappear in the wild with no trace of antigenic drift. We've confirmed that it was a lab originated flu, but there's debate over whether it was just a random lab accident or a consequence of vaccine trial gone wrong"
