  • Arrays are Objects

     

    Arrays are a special type of objects. The typeof operator in JavaScript returns "object" for  arrays.

     

    But, JavaScript arrays are best described as arrays.

     

    Arrays use numbers to access its "elements". In this  example, person[0]  returns John:

      
     

    Array:

     
     var person = ["John", "Doe", 46];

    Objects use names to access its "members". In this example,  person.firstName  returns John:

     
     

    Object:

     
     var person = {firstName:"John", lastName:"Doe", age:46};

  • Failure to thrive is a medical term that describes children who don’t gain enough weight or don’t gain it fast enough. It can happen in older children, but it’s most common in the first three years of life, when development is rapid and critical, according to the American Academy of Pediatrics.
  • Failure to thrive is often applied when a child falls below the fifth percentile of weight for age more than once, or when his or her weight crosses two major percentile lines on a growth chart, according to a 2011 article in the American Family Physician. Still, there’s no consensus on how it’s defined.
  • failure to thrive is it’s a description rather than a diagnosis

Gerrymandering Has a Solution After All—It's Called Math | WIRED

"Gerrymandering is, of course, the dark art of drawing a legislative map that favors your political party. That involves “packing”—taking all the neighborhoods with voters who hate you and cramming them into one district. (You’ll lose that district by a landslide but have a leg up in all the others.) The reverse trick is “cracking,” breaking up a neighborhood that loathes you into chunks that you attach to other regions where you’re loved. Your opponents’ votes get spread around and diluted."
