Good morning, Smithketeers! Time for Book One, Chapter 8 of #AdamSmith's #WealthOfNations. Today, we're talking wages. Not that they're a topic with any contemporary relevance, or anything. #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
The things we make by working are the natural wage of our labor. Which is great if SmithTweeters want to get paid in SmithTweets. (I.viii.1) #WeDont #TweetsWontBuyHousesByTheSea #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets
It’s a state of nature story, like Locke or Hobbes or Rousseau, but Smith’s state of nature is defined by the product of each person’s labor belonging to that person. Sounds great, but again, we don’t want to get paid in SmithTweets. (I.viii.2) #WealthOfTweets #SmithTweets

Alright! So this is #AceReporting now going through today's Land Use & Neighborhoods Committee. It is **THREE HOURS** so please bear with me.

We have some Comp Plan Amdts, the 2020-2021 Comp Plan Docket, some minor Rezones, Virtual Design Review, and Interim Floodplain Regs.
Today's tips will go towards my groceries ($50) and then anything raised in addition I am going to coordinate to get water and those oxygen sprays to unhoused people. They're $25 for a pack of three so every little donation helps!

Venmo: houstonace

First up is public comment:

We are doing general comments and comments related to public hearings will be during that time.

First comment in favor of extending the current virtual design review process with a push to reform design review in general.

Okay I'll just say it again.

If you're going to be promoting on a platform, you need to be PRESENT on the platform. Here's why.
Social media platforms are kinda like dialects of internet. There are norms to all of them. Once you're COMFORTABLE speaking in those spaces, it's totally fine and natural. But when you aren't? OOOOF. It's very uncomfortable and also it TOTALLY shows.
We've all seen the people #yay #excited #writing who are #ffriday super into #cats and #dogs and their posts because #selfies rock.

Right? The hashtag spewers?
Oooooorrr the people who have like 160-tweet mega-threads... cough cough... this guy...

I have had a brilliant idea for solving the UK's Brexit problem, which I will call The Brexit Bond, and which will make me famous through the ages. 1/n
The problem is that lots of people in the UK think Brexit will be brilliant and will make us all rich, but also lots think it won't be brilliant and will make us all poor 2/n.
Why, says group 1, can't you stop moaning and get behind the project? But why, says group 2, should we pay for your delusions? 3/n

Remember this dwarf galaxy that was presented as lacking dark matter last week (van Dokkum et al. 2018)? #thread
Since extraordinary claims require extraordinary proof, my student @Nico_Longeard and I decided to have a look at the claim of very low velocity dispersion and M/L in NGC1052-DF2 and, how to say…
Turns out that sampling a distribution function with 10 tracers is tricky. Small number statistics are a pain and the uncertainties on the velocities of the 10 globular clusters studied in the paper are of order the intrinsic velocity dispersion. #tricky
