This Week I Learned
- Seems obvious in hindsight, but using
@herein Slack will only notify people in the channel who are online (whereas
@channeljust notifies everyone).
- You may not think you know what a "Trigram for heaven" is, but you likely see it all the time. It's your friendly neighbourhood "hamburger menu" icon: ☰ http://mcdlr.com/8 (there's a taoism shaped black hole there too if you were to start looking further into the meaning of it). Props to my friend Tyron for this one.
- There's a spin-off "Bake Off: The Professionals" series (currently in its 4th season).
Peanuts are not nuts, but legumes:
As a legume, the peanut belongs to the botanical family Fabaceae; this is also known as Leguminosae, and commonly known as the bean, or pea, family. Like most other legumes, peanuts harbor symbiotic nitrogen-fixing bacteria in root nodules. This capacity to fix nitrogen means peanuts require less nitrogen-containing fertilizer and improve soil fertility, making them valuable in crop rotations.
