They don’t even know what a person who is good at mathematics would be called. “Expert mathematician” is not a thing.
“Here’s your sine?”

“Expert mathematician” is not a thing .
Cedric Villani, Fields Medal Winner for 2014 is probably our best ambassador for math… (and he dresses like Dr. Who. ) I went to his Fields Medal talk and he’s immensely entertaining and effective as an educator at a popular and expert level.
…but I do get your drift, “expert mathematician” is an odd thing to hold out as a qualification…
What I mean is that “fields meal winner” is a thing. “Professor of combinatorics” is a thing. “PhD in Non-Euclidean Geometries” is a thing. Even a functional description likes, “is a mathematician employed by NASA” would be a thing.
And anyone with any of those qualifications might be described as an “expert mathematician” casually. But introducing someone as a “math expert” for your interview kind of gives away the game: there wasn’t another way to describe them that would actually mean something.
I have not seen the news yet myself, but my 19yo just texted to say that Britney is FREE!
Good for her.
Even if she should make bad choices going forward, they’re hers to make, because she’s a freakin’ adult with agency.
I genuinely wish her the best.
While this is encouraging news that her dad is stepping aside, she is not free - the conservatorship is transitioning to a new conservator.
So, good news, progress, but not over yet
pro-life anti-choice creeps should get a life.
If we had this during the 1970s in Kansas, it might have kept so much of the national political arena from veering into right-wing nuttery in the current time.
Agreed. The modern GOP is a combination of the dog whistling 68 Nixon campaign “southern strategy” combined with the culture wars of the Moral Majority, coupled with Reagan’s hysterical, militant anti-communism.
