Optimizing Apple Park

And we’re back with another circle-themed geometry puzzle! This one’s about the new headquarters of Apple, Inc: Apple Park. (Remember, I don’t actually work in this building.)

Contra Dancing

Last weekend I went contra dancing on a date.1 It’s been a while since I’ve done any blog posts, so sure, let’s talk about that.

Contra dancing is one of those country dance styles, like square dancing, except the primary form is two long lines facing each other (hence “contra”, “opposite”) instead of four partners in a square. There’s a sequence of…moves? steps?…that make up each dance, which the main “caller” will explain up front and then call out for the first few rounds. Or as my date put it, “it’s people making patterns with live music”.
