The Computer Scientist That Created Cut, Copy, and Paste, Has Passed Away

The advent of the personal computer wasn’t just about making these powerful machines available to everyone, it was also about making them accessible and usable, even for those lacking a computer science degree. Larry Tesler, who passed away on Monday, might not be a household name like Steve Jobs or Bill Gates, but his contributions to making computers and mobile devices easier to use are the highlight of a long career influencing modern computing.

Born in 1945 in New York, Tesler went on to study computer science at Stanford University, and after graduation he dabbled in artificial intelligence research (long before it became a deeply concerning tool) and became involved in the anti-war and anti-corporate monopoly movements, with companies like IBM as one of his deserving targets. In 1973 Tesler took a job at the Xerox Palo Alto Research Center (PARC) where he worked until 1980. Xerox PARC is famously known for developing the mouse-driven graphical user interface we now all take for granted, and during his time at the lab Tesler worked with Tim Mott to create a word processor called Gypsy that is best known for coining the terms “cut,” “copy,” and “paste” when it comes to commands for removing, duplicating, or repositioning chunks of text.

What's with this "Busting my ass off working" when you refused to work more than "20 hours/wk"??  ???

And why worry about "THE GAME IS RIG" when you can just win the lotto or predict which stock will win big since you're the "hmong Nostradamus and is always right"?  ???

Repossessed car had one-year-old baby inside

In East Orange, New Jersey, outside Newark, a one-year-old girl was caught in the middle of a horrifying incident when a car was repossessed while she was in the back seat. According to News12, the baby was found less than an hour later and returned to her family unharmed.

On February 12, 2020, a father packed his daughter Hannah into the back seat of his Acura before running an errand. When he realized he had forgotten her bottle, he chose to leave Hannah in the car while he ran up to a second-floor apartment to grab what he needed. When he returned to street level, the vehicle was gone, with no trace to be found.

The father believed the car had been stolen and the baby had been kidnapped, but fortunately that was not the case. After he alerted the mother and called 911, the two heard back from officers about 40 minutes later. A repossession worker had taken the vehicle and supposedly didn't see or hear a baby in the back. The driver took the vehicle to a repo lot near Newark, where the family reunited with their daughter at a hospital.

After a checkup, the baby came back with a clean bill of health. The distraught parents expressed remorse and said they'd never leave a child alone in a vehicle again.
