    1. I compare these digital scientific notations to the the traditional scientific notations that have been used for centuries, showing how the digital notations optimized for computerized processing are often an obstacle to scientific communication and to creative work by human scientists
    2. I analyze the causes and propose guidelines for the design of more human-friendly digital scientific notations.

    1. The fact that one of our two national parties would stick with a leader who dispatched a mob to ransack the Capitol in hopes of overturning our last election is an acute national problem — a cancer, in fact

      This provides another central idea. It is not just about how Trump affected America during his presidency, but the future after it. He compares it to cancer, a metaphor that portrays the gravity of the situation. He also shows that he considers the Trump situation as worse than any of the other situations discussed by calling this an international emergency while deer and SF were local.

    2. That is a lot like Trump and his followers, whose attachment to him has become so cultlike that every other Republican leader knows that challenging Trump is potential political suicide. The result: He, too, has no serious predators

      The writer makes his second main claim in the article. He shows why Trump had as much power as he did and why no one was taking action against him. He builds on how this negatively harmed the country. He beautifully makes a metaphor to the deer, for the deer would be Trump and the garden it ruined would be America

    3. That is a lot like Trump and his followers, whose attachment to him has become so cultlike that every other Republican leader knows that challenging Trump is potential political suicide. The result: He, too, has no serious predators

      This post further emphasizes the analogy of Trump's presidency to the deer. He introduces the central idea that Trump's immense power is partly due to the American people. No one truly took action against Trump, and the Republican party for the most part, protected him. This allowed him to act "stupid" as he said in the previous paragraph.

    1. The northern end of the park has typically seen less affluent neighbors and significantly less attention, but Central Park Conservancy is about to change that. Earlier this fall, the non-profit group announced a $150 million renovation that would improve the parkland, add a new boardwalk along the man-made lake known as Harlem Meer, and build a new recreation facility to replace the Lasker pool and skating rink, both of which date back to the 1960’s. (Side note: The Trump Organization has the concession to run the skating rink through 2021, by which time there may be someone else in the White House.) Construction is set to begin in 2021, and completion is estimated for 2024.

    1. Or, as a soldier of a desert war wrote in last autumn’s New York Times, is our central task the task of learning how to die—not (as he put it) to die ‘as individuals, but as a civilization’ (Scranton, 2013), in the Anthropocene?

      I found this statement incredibly depressing yet profound. Depressing in the idea that our central task is learning how to die (really who wants to be that morbid and think like that) (potentially digital humanists?), yet profound, because the soldier is not talking about us as individuals, but as a human civilization, as a whole, as a group, as a collective.
