A dead mathematician co-authored a paper after appearing in a dream: boingboing.net/2021/07/20/a-pe

The paper is "Higher Algebraic \(K\)-Theory of Schemes and of Derived Categories" by Robert Wayne Thomason and Thomas Trobaugh (2007), doi.org/10.1007/978-0-8176-457, ams.org/mathscinet-getitem?mr=

Ok y’all. I was skeptical of spatial audio as a music-only experience… I was wrong. This is really immersive and it’s wonderful. Especially in the context of not having attending a concert since the over of covid.

Does the executive branch have the power to compel members of the legislative branch? If this were to happen, it would represent a dangerous shift in the relationships of the governmental branches. washingtonpost.com/politics/te

Breonna Taylor, Graphic Video 

(14:12) To Mr Walker’s cries of “My girlfriend is dead,” police respond “I don’t give a - keep walking.” Is this what they mean by “serve and protect”? youtube.com/watch?v=lDaNU7yDns
