    1. Because constants in Ruby aren't meant to be changed, Ruby discourages you from assigning to them in parts of code which might get executed more than once, such as inside methods.

    1. Trust me, I thought a lot about #validate and its semantics, and I am gonna make it even more "SRP" by making Form#errors and #valid? semi-public. All that happens via #validate reducing the possible wrong usage for users.

    1. The only solution that I can see is to ensure that each user gets their own set of stores for each server-rendered page. We can achieve this with the context API, and expose the stores like so: <script> import { stores } from '@sapper/app'; const { page, preloading, session } = stores(); </script> Calling stores() outside component initialisation would be an error.

      Good solution.

    1. This would be cumbersome, and would encourage developers to populate stores from inside components, which makes accidental data leakage significantly more likely.
    2. which makes it much harder to accidentally keep logged-in state visible after a client-side logout

    1. There was a major refactoring in the resolver (https://github.com/webpack/enhanced-resolve). This means the resolving option were changed too. Mostly simplification and changes that make it more unlikely to configure it incorrectly.

    1. Looking at all those bearing, heading, orientation, navigation, position, direction, etc. I think we have a bigger problem here. Someone has decided how to use tag (e.g. orientation is about page orientation), but there are 100 other cases. Imho, to disallow misusing there should be no "heading", but rather "html-heading", "gps-heading", "whatelse-heading", which make mistakes impossible. So yes, "heading" should go.

    1. Using expect { }.not_to raise_error(SpecificErrorClass) risks false positives, as literally any other error would cause the expectation to pass, including those raised by Ruby (e.g. NoMethodError, NameError, and ArgumentError)

      Actually, those would be false negatives: the absence of a test failure when it should be there.

      https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/False_positives_and_false_negatives

    1. This is called a false positive. It means that we didn't get a test failure, but we should have

      No, this is a false negative. We didn't get a test failure (that is, there is a lack of the condition (test failure)), when the condition (test failure) should have been present.

    1. distributing pamphlets that urged an overthrow of the government

      The pamphlets were urging the resistance of the draft, but the book did not state that the attempt was to overthrow the government. Only to express his political ideals.

    1. the food ban list supported by Republicans bans organic foods and a great many products that have nutritional value.

      The author confuses the WIC program list with this bill. This bill only prevents you from buying shellfish with SNAP benefits, and prevents more than a third being spent on unapproved foods.

    2. The list of “disallowed” foods, which you can view here, also includes the following

      This list is for the WIC program, which is different from the SNAP program that the bill is about.

    3. The legislation specifically bans poor people from buying any kind of shellfish, including lobster, shrimp, and crab.

      This is incorrect. The bill prevents SNAP benefits being used to buy shellfish, but doesn't ban poor people from buying shellfish outright.

    4. Assembly Bill 177 seeks to ban people who rely on food stamps to survive on a daily basis from buying a huge list of products

      This is incorrect for the same reasons given in the above annotation.

    5. a bill that would ban them from eating a multitude of foods

      This is incorrect. The bill does not ban people from eating any foods. It bans people from buying shellfish with SNAP benefits. It also bans people from spending more than a third of their SNAP benefits on unapproved foods.

    6. Wisconsin GOP Passes Bill Banning Poor People From Buying Shellfish, Potatoes And Ketchup

      This headline is inaccurate. The bill prevents SNAP benefits from being used to buy shellfish, but people are still allowed to buy shellfish with non-SNAP money. The bill also prevents people from using more than a third of their SNAP benefits on food that's not on an approved list, but potatoes are on that list, so people can spend all their benefits on potatoes if they want. Ketchup is unapproved, so people can spend only a third of their SNAP benefits on ketchup.

    1. The impact today of human activity appears to be comparable to the intrinsic, natural variability of the climate system itself.

      In a study comparing human impacts and natural impacts on climate over the 20th century, Wigley and Santer write that "Our results show that the expected warming due to all human influences since 1950 (including aerosol effects) is very similar to the observed warming. Including the effects of natural external forcing factors has a relatively small impact on our 1950–2005 results..." in "A probabilistic quantification of the anthropogenic component of twentieth century global warming," (Climate Dynamics, 2013).
