I work for a residential and small commercial solar installer. Right now I work doing project administration stuff, which is stuff like filing for incentives, writing contracts, getting approval from the utility, scheduling things, and customer service. I don't like a lot of it, especially that there's an expectation that you work at minimum 45 hours a week and if you call in sick, by how the whole thing is set up, there's no one that will cover for you, so you just have to work overtime the next week, and so I'm trying to switch positions.

I took night classes in the National Electric Code and was given a promotion to doing the system design, which will be making plansets for the build crew, doing permit drawings, etc.. Unfortunately the promotion is contingent on them hiring a replacement and my boss has not been putting in any real effort, which sucks, as it has been since October 10th that they've theoretically been looking. So far there has not even been a single in-person interview. My boss became obsessed with bitcoins and spent all of her time the last few months trading various crytpocurrencies at work. I finally told her that I don't care about my current job anymore and was going to be doing the absolute minimum amount of work possible to keep everything from falling apart, but no more than that. Since then she's had a few phone interviews, but she's going to Thailand for 2 weeks of vacation, so it's likely going to be early March that I actually get the promotion.

In the meantime, it really sucks that I'm absolutely slammed with scheduling, as we are short one designer (future-me), so we don't have all the permits that we should, so between our project managers and the other project administrator, we are doing about 20 hours additional work every week to find jobs that we have permits for or can pull a permit for quickly enough to do work the next week and then tell the people that should have been done the next week that it'll probably be an additional week or two before we get out there. It's absurd.

Cast irons are supposed to take a long time to heat up, their advantage is that they have a high heat capacity and do not cool down quickly.

The interpretation that they are about hate, not heritage is the mainline historical perspective, btw.

Between 1885 and 1908, every single former Cofnederate state rewrote its constitutrion to include provisions restricting voting rights with poll taxes, literacy tests, and felon disenfranchisement.

1896 is when Jim Crow laws are declared constitutional. The era of lynching began just afterwards. There were hundreds of black people being lynched every year in the era that those veterans would be 60-70 years old.

Kentucky has under 10% of their civil war monuments dedicated to the Union despite never leaving the Union and having 90,000 Union volunteers vs. 30,000 Confederate volunteers.

A trivial amount were remembrance, the vast vast majority were a response to black people gaining more legal rights.

This one is how people responded by who they supported in the primary, what is that graph actually showing and why is it so different from this one?

Source is an article about how Democrats need to stop trying to win centrist voters because centrist voters do not exist: http://nymag.com/daily/intelligencer/2017/07/dems-can-abandon-the-center-because-the-center-doesnt-exist.html

More evidence that humans made it out of sub-Saharan Africa 200,000 years earlier than previously expected. The last one was that about 5 weeks ago, evidence was announced of modern humans having made it to Morocco.

There is now evidence that modern humans made it to Europe around 270,000 years ago and bred with Neanderthals. Eventually all Neanderthal mitochondrial DNA was replaced with modern human mitochondrial DNA. So the mitochondrial DNA for Neanderthals older than 270,000 years ago does not have any continuity with the mitochondrial DNA after. Amazingly cool.
