The Disadvantages Of Single Page Applications
We Need A Nuclear New Deal, Not A Green New Deal
In the Link Dump prior to this one, there was a great article that outlined the future of nuclear reactor technology using molten chloride salt fast reactor (MCSFR) designs. This article focuses more on the policy aspect, but is just as relevant as the US the rest of the world need to make smart, informed choices on the benefits of nuclear power and the dangers of "renewable" energy sources that do more harm than good in the long run.
CSS Variables 101
I love using CSS variables as opposed to those native to SCSS, simply for the easier syntax if nothing else. This article is a good refresher on some of the use cases and best-practices surrounding CSS variables.
This Page Is A Truly Naked, Brutalist HTML Quine
Really cool effect of rendering HTML source code as body text using CSS element display properties.
Understanding Operational 5G: A First Measurement Study
It's clear that 5G has less coverage and efficiency than 4G at the cost of purportedly higher throughput; resulting in the need for more towers at closer distributions, which in turn require more power for the overall network transmission.
Declarative Shadow DOM
Physicists Build Circuit That Generates Clean, Limitless Power From Graphene
Not my area of expertise, but this seems like it could revolutionize the way that micro-circuitry is powered; using effectively natural properties of freestanding graphene, or rather "a single layer of carbon atoms" in order to harvest energy.
Security By Obscurity Is Underrated
Good defense is created by defense-in-depth; and security by obscurity doesn't cost much if anything in the way of layering measures that will at least get rid of script kiddies and other rudimentary acts of reconnaissance. I appreciate the author's metaphor to real-world security, as that has always been the inspiration and logic for implementing obscurity into a robust information security posture.
Why Is There A Normal Galaxy Sitting At The Edge Of The Universe?
The gravitational lensing affecting the viewing, the fact that it took two telescopes in the Southern hemisphere to confirm, the exact alignment that distorts it into a ring, and the age of the galaxy relative it's maturity all form tip of the iceberg and uncanny nature of this galactic discovery.
