I was listening to a clip about this on CBS, which answered the question I had - "did the planes go supersonic?".

Spoiler alert: no, since 800 mph quoted speed is actually ground speed (speed relative to the ground). Their air speed would be their normal cruising speed (about 560 mph). Now I know!

Here's a clip about Samuel, the young lad that accompanied James Maddison at the last week's game. It's a bit of an emotional story but worth watching.

I think the smile on Madders' face says it all, that he was happy to do the honor. 馃憦

Just finished reading (listening) to the book The Mysterious Case of Rudolf Diesel. Diesel, who invented the diesel engine, disappeared in Sept. 1913.

Very interesting read!

I just finished Henry Winkler's book, it was excellent, particularly because it was the audio book version (thanks to my local library!).

Here's a clip Winkler referred to in his book, where he won an Emmy for his role in Barry:

On this topic, this is probably my venting but here goes...

It was so annoying to listen to the characterization by the MSM of these findings (as CNN put it, "scathing report"). If it was so scathing, why wasn't POTUS charged? Because he's old? Didn't realize that was a free pass 馃く
Stewart Tan @sstan99
Agree...

As Andrew Weissman said on twit:

It was entirely foreseeable Rob Hur would pull a Comey in his report. Garland was 馃挴 right to have appointed a Special Counsel but wrong to pick Hur and to think only a Republican could fit the bill.

I just finished the audio book and it was excellent.

Liza Mundy also wrote the book Code Girls about the role of women in code-breaking during WW2.

Fun fact (didn't know until I Googled) - Mundy is married to Bill Nye, the Science Guy!

Iga 艢wi膮tek is out, lost in 3 sets to Linda Noskov谩. She has had a tough draw: Kenin and Collns in the first 2 rounds.

Only 3 of the top 10 seeds left:
Aryna (2)
Coco (4)

Could be 2 by end of day 8 matches as BK plays Andreeva. 馃し
