Installing Ruby versions in MacBook M1

My MBP M1 is 5 months old and it is only now that I found time to make it run Ruby on Rails.

I used to work on an old MBP. It was my workhorse for the longest time and I had no problems with it until the battery needed to be changed and I can’t find a replacement.

Now that I have the M1, I met some challenges in migrating my RoR projects to work with this new machine.

I had difficulty installing other versions of Ruby. I needed version 2.7.0 to run the apps I was working on.

Scouring the web for solutions I found this one that works. If you are using asdf and needs to run Ruby 2.7.0. Just run this in your terminal, otherwise change “asdf” and “Ruby 2.7.0” with the Ruby version manager and Ruby version of your choice:

RUBY_CFLAGS=“-Who-error=implicit-function-declaration” asdf install ruby 2.7.0

Then run bundle update, then bundle and you’re ready to rails s your project.

Happy coding!

On Quantum mecahnics and Entanhled time

Most contemporary philosophical accounts of the relationship between objects and their properties embrace entanglement solely from the perspective of spatial nonlocality. But there’s still significant work to be done on incorporating temporal nonlocality – not only in object-property discussions, but also in debates over material composition (such as the relation between a lump of clay and the statue it forms), and part-whole relations (such as how a hand relates to a limb, or a limb to a person). For example, the ‘puzzle’ of how parts fit with an overall whole presumes clear-cut spatial boundaries among underlying components, yet spatial nonlocality cautions against this view. Temporal nonlocality further complicates this picture: how does one describe an entity whose constituent parts are not even coexistent?

Ownership of craft tools was central to artisan identity and following 1776, it was common for urban white craftsmen to brandish their craft tools as a symbol of their elevated socioeconomic status and to display patriotism.

Lifegoal: Becoming a better version of yourself

”Better” means stronger, kinder, wiser

Don’t think of improvement solely in terms of objective measures of performance

By Brad

So don’t bother comparing yourself to others. Compare yourself to prior versions of yourself. When you do, ask if you’ve gotten better. Are you stronger, kinder, and wiser than we were before?

Anthropologist digitizes a changing culture from half a world away

In 2006, University of Virginia anthropologist Lise Dobrin received a document attached to an email from a man she knew in Papua New Guinea, where she had conducted fieldwork for her dissertation several years earlier. The document told the story of the history of the man’s village. He wrote that he was afraid if he didn’t write it, no one else would.
