Yes, the Poland parliamentary election
shows a turn from right towards center.
A big deal when you are part of the EU,
and a big relief for the other nations
as well as Poland's more moderate citizens.

After what happened in Central Europe
before the last world war,
it is to be hoped that Poland will stay moderate now.

Enjoy your annular eclipse, yanks. I don't know exactly where any of youse live so I don't know who if anyone will get the full view. Someone in Texas, huh!

We had a total eclipse in Cornwall on August 11 1999 just after 11 am. Here in Bude the coverage of the sun was 99%, so we drove to Sharp Tor on Bodmin Moor (half an hour away) where we had to hike to the top. The cloud miraculously parted for a few minutes and we were just about the only people in the country to see it from the ground. The shadow rushing towards us across the countryside was scary and stunning, black as night and very chilly for a few minutes, and we saw Baily's beads, the diamond ring and the corona.

Another time in the spring of 2015 I was in hospital when there was a partial eclipse with most of the sun covered. It didn't go dark but it was strangely dull despite the clear blue sky. I made a makeshift pinhole camera out of cardboard with a safety pin, and had all the beautiful nurses in the ward crowding round me to see it . Ah, science can be so rewarding! :-)

The EU and the US have immediately condemned Hamas and sided with Israel. That's disgusting. I don't like what Hamas are doing but I'm not going to forget the dreadful things visited on the Palestinians over the last few decades, and, more specifically and relevantly in this instance, to Gaza, which get a free pass from Israel's chief ally. Two and a quarter million civilians blockaded into a stinking ghetto, deprived of proper medical care and even of decent drinking water by the Israeli regime. It's new news and it's bloody bad news. Sickening.

Here's an interesting reversal of fortune:
A California judge has quashed one of Sonos's legal victories against Google – and the $32.5 million royalty payout that came along with it – declaring Sonos's patents at the heart of the matter were the unenforceable work of a "pretender" attempting to "punish an innovator … by delay and sleight of hand."

Judge William Alsup's order [PDF] invalidating the two patents at issue vacates a jury verdict from May of this year. The jury had found Google had infringed one of the patents, which concerned managing groups of smart speakers in a multi-room space.

Essentially, in this particular case, Sonos said the ability to group together Google Nest and Home smart speakers in your house or apartment – specifically, allowing gear to belong to more than one speaker group – infringed its intellectual property, and it demanded royalties. Sonos is also known for its multi-room speaker kit.

Unfortunately for Sonos, Alsup, a federal district judge in San Francisco, concluded after some investigation by himself that the two patents – 10,848,885 and 10,469,966 – in question were unenforceable based on a doctrine known as "prosecution laches." The rarely used laches defense is applicable when there is an unreasonable and unexplained delay in patent prosecution despite opportunities to do so earlier.

The patents in suit stem from an application made way back in 2006, Alsup explained, "but [Sonos] did not file the applications for these patents and present the asserted claims for examination until 2019." Sonos linking its 2019 patents (used to challenge Google in court) to that earlier 2006 application was spurious, the judge concluded, and was done only to claim a prior date before Google's allegedly infringing products came to market in 2015.

Summing it up:
Sonos was trying to punish Google retroactively by reaching into the past and connecting patent filings made over a decade apart.

"This was not a case of an inventor leading the industry to something new. This was a case of the industry leading with something new and, only then, an inventor coming out of the woodwork to say that he had come up with the idea first – wringing fresh claims to read on a competitor's products from an ancient application," Alsup lamented.

This scary story seems to have resolved itself overnight.

Craig Ross Jr. charged with kidnapping 9-year-old Charlotte Sena from Moreau Lake State Park in Upstate New York

Last we heard there was a huge search for the girl snatched from her bike in a large campground; lucky for Ms Sena she seems to have been kidnapped by a not-very-bright kidnapper who was pretty easily detected and brought in. Anyone who watches the police procedurals knows he should have worn gloves when handling a ransom note he stuffed into the family mailbox in the wee hours.

One and a half million children work in Chocolate Plantations for little or no pay. Chocolate beans that make about 500 chocolate bars get the farmers only $80.

The fair trade for coffee growers allows the farmers about 20% more for their crop. There is room for improvement for farmers, for sure.

Fixing the child labor problem will make your chocolate more expensive.

How a Melbourne recycling program is using old hotel soap to solve a global health problem ... A decade after Soap Aid's inception, boxes of used soap from 250 hotels across Australia and New Zealand come to a warehouse in Melbourne's south.

Some soap is yellow-brown, cracked, and filthy. Others are pristine and in their original wrappings.

Phase one includes manually and visually checking, and sorting what is not salvageable.

The rest is checked by a metal detector and scraped clean by hand.

"I check up to 200 kilograms a day," shouts a worker proudly over the whirr of machinery.

Then, soap that is deemed to be reusable is dumped into a machine for a multi-phase process to treat, smash, strain, and then re-mould the soap ...

Mr Matulick said Soap Aid supplied 2.9 million bars of soap to communities in need across the world, including remote and regional Indigenous communities in Australia ...

Australia's fashion waste is a growing problem, but these scientists say they have an answer It looks and feels like children's playdough, but this colourful clay being made in a lab at Deakin University in Geelong, is actually old clothing.
For the past five years, scientists at the university's Institute for Frontier Materials have been trialling different methods to figure out the best way to recycle Australia's growing textile waste.
Now, they think they've found a way.
"What we've discovered is that we can take waste textiles and grind them up into really fine particles, which we can then use as a pigment to re-dye new textiles," Emma Prime, Deakin University's strategic research manager, said. (read on)
