Archaeologists reveal life stories of hundreds of people from #medieval #Cambridge
Examination of remains in hospital grounds uses DNA analysis and other disciplines to build ‘biographies’

As I prepare to head back home from #Cambridge, I'm reflecting on how much I've learned and on the hospitality shown to me by Jamie Vicary and his graduate students, @jonmsterling, and the computer lab as a whole. My first trip to the UK has been the experience of a lifetime and I look forward to seeing new friends I've made here again soon.

I was surprised to find that one person did a great deal to make me feel welcome despite the fact that I never met her. I noticed the pictured pride flag on my first day in the computer lab, and I assumed everyone signed it as part of some event. I don't talk much about being queer on Mastodon, but seeing this definitely helped me feel much more at ease in a place which was foreign to me, an American mathematician, in multiple senses.

A progress-style pride flag hung vertically on an interior wall. The flag is covered with queer messages and slogans, some including mathematical puns, as well as signatures.

"About 10 male skeletons were identified as probable university scholars thanks to the symmetry of their arm bones, which suggested, unlike most of the young male skeletons, that they didn’t perform heavy manual work." #Cambridge https://www.theguardian.com/science/2023/dec/01/archaeologists-life-stories-medieval-cambridge

“The site of the hospital of St John the Evangelist was excavated in 2010, uncovering hundreds of unidentified graves. For the new study, experts in #DNA and isotope analysis, human skeletal variation and a range of other disciplines examined up to 50 individual characteristics of each skeleton, to build what they believe is one of the richest such datasets ever compiled for medieval #England."

Every year, I make a batch of seasonal #Cocktail bitters to give to friends for the holiday season.

This year, they're gingerbread flavour, and I'm quite happy with how they turned out.

But I made far too much.

If you're in #Toronto (or maybe #Kitchener, #Waterloo or #Cambridge, depending on my travel schedule) and you want some, let me know.

These are around 38-40% alcohol, and will also be good in baking, coffee, hot chocolate, etc.

Have a happy holiday season, everyone!

I have a new #icanhazpdf request!

I have an ongoing project (https://arxiv.org/abs/2110.05660) on the construction of manifolds from quasigroups and I believe that the book "Finite embedding theorems for partial designs and algebras" by Curt Lindner and Trevor Evans (MR0460213) may be helpful to me. I was wondering if anyone knows where I could obtain a copy, as it seems to be out of print.

Ideally, I would like to buy my own physical copy from someone, or even better obtain a pdf of the whole book.

I have tried many of the usual places online, as well as asking the #UniversalAlgebra Google group, to no avail. I still need to try using the access to #Cambridge Core which I now have as a member of the Association for Symbolic #Logic. Ironically, I am in Cambridge right now, but my credentials for this are back in Colorado and I don't remember them. I'm not sure how likely it is that they'll transfer an entire book to me digitally, though.

I knew that I could expect to find the cutting edge of quantum computing here at Cambridge, but I didn't realize that they'd have shops selling qubits (as I, an American, would spell it). They even offer eye exams, presumably to make sure you can see the little things okay.

"couper l’assistance électrique dans les zones piétonnes"

Je partage le souci de respect des piétons et de tous les usagers en général.

Cependant, pour avoir fait l'expérience à #Cambridge d' #ebikes en self-service avec géolocalisation coupant l'assistance, je dois dire que c'est très désagréable.

Surtout, puisque c'est si facile que même un #vélo peut l'avoir pourquoi n'est-ce pas généralisé aux #voitures #taxis #bus #camions, responsables de la quasi totalité des accidents graves ? #zone30

I had business in #Cambridge today.

So, I took the #MBTA Red Line from Alewife to Harvard. The trip took 28 minutes for three stops. Slow zones make cars travel at walking speed. And I might have felt safer walking, too.

The #T is beyond run down, more than embarrassing. It’s dangerous. The cars’ doors don’t work; concrete is crumbling wherever you look. Escalators and elevators? Ha!

Somehow, we’ve managed to exceed the shabbiness one associates with late Soviet-era infrastructure.

🟤 Sleeping art and ... a favorite
photo.
📷 by Artist: #SueLaw / #SueLawArt in Loc.: #Cambridge UK 🇬🇧 - Title: "The Life and Death of a Relationship" ("Das Leben und Sterben einer Beziehung") - #Streetart #Art #Mastoart #PhotoArt #Sculpture #FineArt #Fotografie #Photography ➡️ #APhotoLove

Photography and Art. A color photo of a sculpture made of white plaster. From plaster, blankets, sheets and wood was made a bed with two figures, all in the color cream-white. It shows two rumpled pillows with prints on them. Underneath is a rumpled sheet in which two bodies, lying back to back, are asleep. However, there are no heads. They are missing.
Info: Originally, 10 sculptures were to be made in which the couple sleeps. Each was to show a different position and depict the stages of a relationship. It was never realized and so this single sculpture remains to show the middle stage of a love relationship.

Found this tile near South Station in #Boston purely by chance after our flight was cancelled and we had to run to catch a train instead (at least we were able to work something out to get home). Anyway…it’s the only tile I know of in Boston, but I’m not sure if that’s because I don’t have enough eyes in Boston or there just really aren’t any others up there.

It would appear that “former Tory MP Antoinette Sandbach has threatened the University of Cambridge with legal action after a historian named her as a descendant of merchants who enslaved his ancestors.”

Oh, my… It would be a damn shame if more people knew of this so please do not boost this post.

Hey #BikeTooter I went on a #ride on one of my favourite local loops ('Off Rd Old Faithful') and retook a picture I've taken a few times, from the Mere Way (an ancient bridleway rd) looking back towards #Cambridge #UK. It was a perfect evening for it. Sadly the quick pint I've rewarded myself with has only lasted about as long as its taken to write this toot!

A black gravel bike with blue Cannondale logos stands against a fence post in the East Anglian countryside, on a near-perfect English late summer evening in the distance the city of Cambridge is just visible. The immediate foreground is verdant green and the field behind is recently harvested barley yellow.

Please welcome to Mastodon @Jagolinzer - who recently organized #Cambridge #Disinformation Summit! Well worth a follow for anyone interested in #disinfo #socialmedia and #accountability!

A summertime symphony of green and black.

A city sidewalk is crowned by the leaves of trees on either side of the path. The bright sunshine creates almost abstract patterns of light and shadow throughout the image. The top two thirds of the image is a dense crown of tree branches and leaves. A few people are walking away from and toward me and my camera, and they are all dressed in black. One woman has turned around, possibly looking at me taking the picture.

It’s so *quiet* in Cambridge during the summer break period—but the beauty is unabated. Here you see one of the specimen trees in Chapman's Garden, Emmanuel College. The garden is named for the Rev. Arthur Chapman, a Hebrew scholar in Emmanuel, who established and tended it for more than 50 years. Essentially, he had it to himself but mid-Victorian photographs show that he welcomed guests to the garden.

King's College chapel in Cambridge. An example of late Perpendicular Gothic English architecture, featuring the world's largest fan vault. A clear blue sky above. The river Cam in the lower part of the photo, with a single punt to the left with four people on it.
The Mathematical Bridge in Cambridge, constructed using flat wooden planks, but still featuring an arch. From the left, it leads into a red brick building to the right. The river Cam below, two punts with people, and three moored to the left. The sun is beginning to set. Trees, some flowers, and foliage to the left.
Cloisters in New Court, St John's College, Cambridge. New Court has a tall three-sided Gothic Revival design, closed on the fourth side by two seven-bayed cross-vaulted cloisters meeting with a picturesque gateway facing the river.
Looking down Trinity Street in Cambridge. Lots of people walking. Gothic looking buildings to the left, and shop fronts to the right. Clear blue sky above.
