  • COVID~19 deaths in America - 1,134,300 but I'm wondering if the CDC Web site is really up to date.
  • Supreme Court - Justice Elena Kagan said in her dissent that the Supreme Court, "violates the Constitution."
  • Tessellation - An aperiodic tiling is possible with a tile invented by an amateur geometer.
  • North Carolina - Governor vetoes anti~LGBT+∞ bill.
  • Twitter - Leon Skum is killing it.
  • Climate crisis - Some states that deny it are suffering from it now.

Advanced Geometry, Bad Supreme Court, Record-Breaking Heat.

We talked quite a bit about the "einstein tile" invented by an amateur geometer. The tile has 13 sides and can tile the plane infinitely without making a repeated pattern. We read part of Supreme Court Justice Elena Kagan's dissent from Students for Fair Admissions v. Harvard. We talked about Leon Skum making a mess of Twitter. We talked about the Governor of North Carolina vetoing an anti~LGBT+∞ bill. We talked about the pandemic.
