The Tyger, by William Blake
Tyger Tyger, burning bright,
In the forests of the night;
What immortal hand or eye,
Could frame thy fearful symmetry?
In what distant deeps or skies.
Burnt the fire of thine eyes?
On what wings dare he aspire?
What the hand, dare seize the fire?
And what shoulder, & what art,
Could twist the sinews of thy heart?
And when thy heart began to beat,
What dread hand? & what dread feet?
What the hammer? what the chain,
In what furnace was thy brain?
What the anvil? what dread grasp,
Dare its deadly terrors clasp!
When the stars threw down their spears
And water'd heaven with their tears:
Did he smile his work to see?
Did he who made the Lamb make thee?
Tyger Tyger burning bright,
In the forests of the night:
What immortal hand or eye,
Dare frame thy fearful symmetry?

Fbook just showed me an ad for "Stanford continuing education." I reported it as misleading/scam.
SSI and Trevon Logan Huddle on "How much is a 5-star recruit worth?"
Thursday, May 28, 2020 - 4:00pm to 5:00pm
The most elite players in college football increase revenue for their school football programs by an average of $650,000 a year, a first-of-its-kind study suggests.
Join Trevon Logan, co-author of the study, professor of economics at Ohio State and SSI's executive director, to discuss the implications for college sports.
Amid the continuing national debate about compensation for college athletes, this study offers the first solid numbers on the financial impact of players in the highest-revenue college sport.

We get "Lessons Learned" emails about safety. This one came in today:
A worker performing activities for an Oil & Gas company used an alcohol-based hand sanitizer as recommended by current hygiene recommendations in the Site COVID-19 plan. Just after the application to his own hands, but before the liquid disinfectant had evaporated and completely dried, the worker touched a metal surface. On this metal surface, an accumulation of static electricity created an ignition source, and the disinfectant (ethyl-alcohol based) flashed, resulting in an almost invisible flame (blue) in both hands. The contractor managed to extinguish the flames but suffered from first and second-degree burns to both hands.
So that's where the title came from...
Customer: hey the software vendor says X is an issue, anyone looked into this?
Application/ server admin: looks like this issue was addressed from this hot patch release, we could apply that. (Quotes release notes summary showing patch was issued earlier this month)
Customer: why wasn’t this addressed when we upgraded?
We upgraded in April, which is how I know the customer didn’t read the patch release notes summary before replying.
Nice poem. With threats to shut down social media companies trump has completely lost it. How can we get this bozo out of office?
