Happy Tau Day

My family celebrates both Pi Day and Tau Day

This amuses me http://www.holidayscalendar.com/event/tau-day/

Celebrating Tau Day
People celebrate this holiday in a number of different ways. For instance, since the value of Tau is twice as much as that of Pi, many people will eat double the amount of pie on this day. Another way to celebrate the day is by wearing a Tau T-shirt or reading The Tau Manifesto.

If you’re a math teacher, you can use this holiday to involve your students in math-related activities that are not only fun but also beneficial for their education.

A federal judge just ordered the Trump administration to speed up family reunifications

Source: vox

A federal judge has ordered the Trump administration to reunify families that have been separated by the administration’s “zero tolerance” prosecution policy — and soon.

Judge Dana M. Sabraw of the United States District Court for the Southern District of California granted a preliminary injunction late Tuesday night, ordering the federal government to reunite children under the age of 5 with their parents within 14 days, and all other children who’ve been separated from their parents within 30 days. The government said Tuesday there are 2,044 separated children still in federal custody.

Judge Sabraw also ordered the government to stop deporting parents without their children — something that has already happened to an unknown number of parents — unless the parent “affirmatively, knowingly, and voluntarily” agrees to be deported alone. He further ordered that detained parents must be allowed to speak to their children on the phone within 10 days, after multiple reports of parents not being able to make phone calls or locate the facilities where their children are being held.

Sabraw’s order came after the American Civil Liberties Union (ACLU) sued the Trump administration to try to speed up the process to reunify families and stop further separations. But Trump administration lawyers claimed the injunction could delay reunification even longer in a filing on Tuesday, and argued that President Donald Trump had solved the problem with his executive order ending separations last week.

I have been following this case since the first ruling in early June. This judge is a GOP appointed judge but ruled that this no tolerance policy is not acceptable
