Kant. What is Enlightenment
Nonage is the inability to use one's own understanding without another's guidance.
First, these guardians make their domestic cattle stupid and carefully prevent the docile creatures from taking a single step without the leading-strings to which they have fastened them. Then they show them the danger that would threaten them if they should try to walk by themselves. Now this danger is really not very great; after stumbling a few times they would, at last, learn to walk. However, examples of such failures intimidate and generally discourage all further attempts.

Get in Zoomer, We're Saving React — Acko.net
Yes, it was mad, and like Galileo, the people behind React were completely right, for they integrated some of the best ideas out there. They were so right that Angular pretty much threw in the towel on its abysmal two-way binding system and redesigned it to adopt a similar one-way data flow. They were so right that React also dethroned the previous fixture in web land, jQuery, as the diff-based Virtual DOM obsoleted almost all of the trickery people were using to beat the old DOM into shape.
every templating language inevitably turns into a very poor programming language over time. It will grow to add conditionals, loops, scopes, macros, and other things that are much nicer in actual code
Solutions like Redux appeared, got popular, and then were ditched as people realized the boilerplate just wasn't worth it. It was a necessary lesson to learn.

Part II: The failure points from $5m to $100m in ARR - Tracy writes
The big tech exec came from a sweet life with an established brand, big budgets, unlimited perks and fully built-out recruiting, engineering, marketing, sales and customer success teams. Being at a startup is hard in a way that is almost indescribable to anyone who hasn’t experienced it. The only way a big tech exec can be successful at a small startup is if they had been at one before, and they willingly volunteer to roll up their sleeves and get in the trenches again.

Deep Dive: Truist Financial and the Banking Sector - Lyn Alden
However, globalization in manufacturing may be reaching its peak and rolling over, leaving developed countries with more issues related to their top-heavy populations to deal with, at least around the margins
Some analysts have phrased this by saying “the Fed is paying banks to not lend”. A more precise way to phrase it is that the Fed is incentivizing banks not to lend money for less than this rate, since banks can earn this rate risk-free by doing nothing and taking no risk

(3) Can somebody ELI5 the difference between Cash Flow from Operations and Free Cash Flow? : CFA
FCFF is more commonly used. FCFF adjusts the Cash Flow from Operations (CFO) to exclude any cash outflows from interest expense, ignores the tax benefits of interest expense, and subtracts capital expenditures.
I conceptualise CFO as, quite literally, the cash generated by the business in the course of its operations (i.e. net income plus non-cash items minus working capital requirements). It really is quite straight forward.FCF is effectively CFO minus capital expenditure. It shows you how much cash - if any - is available to the company for the purpose of acquisitions, dividends or buybacks.

Error: Service database is not available · Issue #6388 · firebase/firebase-js-sdk
This sounds like the sort of issue you get when there are multiple versions of @firebase/database (or multiple versions of app) getting initialized somehow. It's also possible that during an update the package manager might have got mixed up and kept duplicate versions around. Doing npm ls @firebase/database (when the local repo is in the broken state) should show if that's the case. Another thing to check is maybe a console.log() to see if initializeApp() is being called more than once. I notice a lot of people put initializeApp() inside a conditional (if (getApps().length === 0)) when they have hot reloading apps or apps that could call the code more than once.

Overall there is nothing that makes this stand out over other offerings. Other commenters provided some good examples. I'd mention Altair/Vega as an example of powerful / configurable library that can be driven from either FE or BE. D3 as the gold standard of a low-level visualization primitives library with unsurpassed flexibility. If you're after something more out of the box with a DS angle, Dash does a decent job (and plotly.js for an overwhelming viz feature set). For commercial solutions, HighCharts, as much of a drag as it can be, is still the reliable beige khaki offering. CanvasJS would be another one in that space. If you want to dabble in 3D visualization, three.js is by far both the best starting place and the most robust library you can ask for. Honorable mention for dc.js, as they make good use of the crossfilter approach (driving context/selection across multiple graphs)

Finding Inner Harmony: The Underappreciated Legacy of Karen Horney - Scientific American Blog Network
“Moving Toward People”— Compliance Having what is known as the “compliant” personality, these people appease others at any personal cost including self-subordination and the shedding of individuality. They evaluate themselves by what others think and become overly dependent on other people for love and safety. Horney believed that these people gain a feeling of support and belonging which minimizes their feelings of weakness and isolation. However, in doing so, they accept their own helplessness, and can only feel safe and secure when they win the affection of others and their support. If there are dissenting parents, the child will often attach themselves to the most powerful person or group to create an increased sense of belonging, which makes the child feel less weak and less isolated.
“Moving Against People”— Aggressive Having the “aggressive” personality, these individuals automatically distrust other people’s feeling and intentions, and rebel in whatever way they can. They accept the hypocrisy and hostility around them, and determine, consciously or unconsciously, to fight. They distrust the feelings and intentions of others toward themselves, tend to have a “jungle” worldview, and are prone to an authoritarian personality. They want to be the stronger person at all times and defeat others, partly for their own protection, and partly for revenge.
“Moving Away From People”—Detached Finally, having the “detached” personality, these people do not have feelings of belonging or the desire to fight, but prefer to be kept apart from other people. Instead, they are more concerned with distancing themselves from others, but in doing so they are also estranged from themselves. They consciously and unconsciously avoid emotional involvement with others and display an exaggerated need for self-sufficiency. They build up a world of their own with nature, dolls, books, and dreams.

Bank transfers as a payment method
Many people think that this is painfully complicated and would be much simpler if you could just pay money from your bank account to the cafe’s bank account directly. Why don’t we do that, and what would it take such that we could do that?
precious metals dealers are extremely vulnerable to fraud (because they’re in the business of literally giving people gold, which can be trivially turned back into money at another precious metal dealer). They earn relatively small margins on their transactions. Accordingly, they strongly prefer less-reversible payment methods.
Unlike precious metals, video games have extremely high margins, and therefore most in the games industry optimize for payment methods with high conversion rates and treat fraud as a cost-of-doing-business.
