As I’m starting my journey in Rust land, I was curious aout game engines, which is why I started reading this book. On top, I have a keen interest on electronics and machine learning, so all boxes were ticked here.
Rust has been all the hype for some years now in the compiled space. As a new revision of this book is about to get out, I managed to get my hand on the first revision to see how I could learn Rust with it.
There are a few names in game design that I recognize, and Sid Meier is definitely in the top 3 for me. I remember the name from the first Civilization, and it was just awesome. So what about a book on his life? Sign me in.
It’s a question that is all the rage at the moment. It seems that there is a huge pick-up in questions of racism in all aspects of our life. Maths has been impacted (some people even saying that requiring the right answer is racism, but this is over the top!) and so does now music.
I also had some epiphany myself while reading books on white supremacy last year, but no work on the subject can be considered done after one step. It’s a tough journey. So why music theory and white supremacy put together felt so wrong to me?
I started CrossFit some time before the pandemic, and I read lots of people saying that exercising is good for your health, that our ancestors were fitter than we are and all sorts of dogmas. When I heard about this book, it looked like it was about finding a balance and shedding the light on what our ancestors really were. When we try to find the truth about some dogmas, I’m always interested.
Last summer, I had to switch watches. I decided then to get the Garmin Fenix 6 Pro because because it looked like a good compromise between sport watch and smart watch. After more than 6 months with it, here is my verdict.
Yet another book on Trump, but I liked the premise of this one, as it’s his own niece that wrote it. With a training as a psychologist, she can give a unique perspective on the guy, and het point of view is not the one of an angry betrayed Republican…
It’s only logical to go on an read this book after Me and White Supremacy, as they are answering to each other, one about how to get rid of racism, and this one more on the history and the testimony on racism. It’s also the second book on #BlackLivesMatter that we shared in my fitness book club.
Is it fair to say that this issue is quite current? My fitness book club had this book on their list since before the CrossFit scandal, so it’s fair to see that they were ahead of the curve on this one, and I’m proud to be part of the team.
Still, is being proud of what they did enough? What should I do more to tackle white supremacy?
I started reading this book a few weeks ago, when Trump started the whole ObamaGate nonsense, and when he tried to flip the narrative on what happened with Flynn. As I was reading what happened 3 years ago, it was astonishing to see how manipulative this president is.
This is clearly a political book, and this is not something that I usually review, but sometimes you need to wake up and take position.
