November Rain music video has been seen more than 1bln times on youtube. Ain't sure what youtube maths are worth, though

Yes. Traditionally only fake, but he (Alex Jones) does seem to be in the vanguard of deep fake. And of course a die-hard Trump supporter.

I assume cuch is asking about the incident in which a CNN reporter assaulted a WH intern who was trying to retrieve the microphone
The intern attempted to take the microphone and pass it to the next reporter, but Acosta pulled back, tightened his grip on the microphone when the intern reached for it, and pushed the intern’s arm away from the microphone.
Watch his left arm in the c-span original which is the upper video in the twitter post

infowars converted the video into a gif and did a close-up

Funny! Not as funny as Groucho, but still not bad.

ppauper,
What's your take on Whittaker's Cardinal Function? Is it the best thing since baked bread?

I must admit that I've never heard of it, much less used it

It's in the book by John Boyd, that you mentioned AFAIR.

(a Scottish architect friend once told me his father was a student of ET Whittaker).

I'm very familiar with the other Whittaker functions, the confluent hypergeometric ones, but I prefer the Kummer functions, because for the particular applications I use them for, the math for the Kummer functions is slightly easier, and everyone else in that field seems to use Kummer functions anyway.

I got annoyed at maple many years ago because they had had Kummer functions as the default when you solved various ODEs and then in the next release they switched from KummerM and KummerW to WhittakerM and WhittakerW

That was a tad reckless of them. In software, such a change will change QOS (Quality Of Service).

Whittaker produced some clever students: Aitken, Eddington, Hodge, Watson ("Whittaker and Watson"),..

BTW, 'Eire' (as you call it) was never in the UK.

I think we're splitting hairs here.
the territory of which Eire/the Irish Free State/the Republic of Ireland consists was in the United Kingdom prior to the creation of the Irish Free State
It didn't become Eire/the Irish Free State/the Republic of Ireland until it left the UK

edit: in the old days, the UK was the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland. If Eire/the Irish Free State/the Republic of Ireland rejoins, I presume the UK will once again become the United Kingdom of Great Britain and Ireland
