Congressional Democrats are joining Republicans in a last-ditch effort to undermine the newly implemented No Surprises Act, which bans surprise medical bills. A key provision in the law could become a first step toward allowing the federal government to standardize rates for medical procedures covered under private insurance plans, an objective the private health care industry has fought for decades. Late last year, in the months leading up to the bill’s enactment, opponents filed a flurry of lawsuits claiming that by enforcing the rule in a manner widely viewed as consistent with the text of the legislation, the Biden administration had overstepped Congress’s intentions.

The pulse-dial telephone and its associated mechanical exchange represents the pinnacle of late-19th and early-20th century electromechanical technology, but its vestiges have disappeared from view with astonishing rapidity. [Matthew Harrold] is a telecoms enthusiast who’s been kind enough to share with us the teardown and refurbishment of that most signature of pulse-dial components, a telephone dial. In this case it’s on a rather unusual instrument, a British GPO outdoor phone that would have been seen in all kinds of industrial and safety installations back in the day and can probably still be found in the wild today if you know where to look.

At Akademy in Milan – I’m pretty sure it was
then – I gave a talk about “Managing meeting in Matrix”. The Blue Systems crew
has a kind of weekly stand-up over text chat to coordinate things and to keep
everyone in the loop. That meeting is managed by a Bot, which I call QuatBot.
Only two years after my talk about it, I’ve gotten around to doing an
actual release.
No Screenshots
QuatBot is a Bot for use in text-chat. So there are no pretty screenshots
