The most important states, though, were Michigan, Pennsylvania and Wisconsin. Trump won those states by 0.2, 0.7 and 0.8 percentage points, respectively -- and by 10,704, 46,765 and 22,177 [= 79,646] votes. Those three wins gave him 46 electoral votes; if Clinton had done one point better in each state, she'd have won the electoral vote, too. -- Philip Bump/2016 [AKA, minority governance by the shit kicker class]
Today, states containing just 17 percent of the American population, a historic low, can theoretically elect a Senate majority -- Emily Badger/2016

I believe quite strongly that, if you think about the issue at the appropriate level of abstraction, you're inexorably led to the position that databases must be relational. -- Chris Date/2009
As makers of portable electronics are trying to make their products thinner and lighter while increasing capacity of their batteries to prolong their autonomous life, the number of problems with batteries has increased in the recent years -- Anton Shilov/2017 [take that, all you sillies who think there is no asymptote]
Therefore: In a time of SSD, multi-core/processor, half terabyte memory machines, there is no reason not to build from BCNF data. Time to do what Dr. Codd demonstrated. Technology has finally caught up with the maths.
I know a little something about SQL, DB2 (preferably LUW, z/OS if the money's right), Oracle, SQL Server, Postgres, and database design in general. Mentoring/teaching/consulting on a short term basis, too. And a bit of stat analysis if it's R. gnuoytr at rcn dot com.
