Rarely does a race in early May seem so significant, but Sunday’s event at Kansas Speedway is pivotal for Stewart-Haas Racing. The four-car organization has struggled this season and is on track to have one driver make the playoffs. Three years ago, all four of its drivers were in the final eight of the playoffs. Crew chief Rodney Childers acknowledged what’s at stake this week in an interview with SiriusXM NASCAR Radio. “If we can’t go there and run good,” he said of Kansas, “then we’ve definitely got big issues.” SHR’s challenge has been the lack of balance with its cars. Childers told SiriusXM NASCAR Radio earlier this season that a change in how officials inspect the rear wheel well area “knocked 70 counts of downforce off the car, and when you knock that amount of downforce off, especially when it mainly comes off the rear, it just completely messes up your aero balance .” That’s slowed the cars. No SHR car has ranked higher than eighth in green flag … [Read more...] about Friday 5: Stewart-Haas Racing searches for answers at Kansas

Meanwhile, almost two thirds of people have felt more stressed since the start of the first lockdown.

This Q&A is part of a weekly series of posts highlighting common questions encountered by technophiles and answered by users at Stack Exchange , a free, community-powered network of 100+ Q&A sites . Chris Devereaux has recently been reading up on "Literate Programming," an innovative (and mostly unused) approach to programming developed by Donald Knuth in the 1970s. It got him thinking about new ways of implementing tests. "Well-written tests, especially BDD-style specs, can do a better job of explaining what code does than prose does," he writes in his question . Also, tests "have the big advantage of verifying their own accuracy." Still, Chris has never seen tests written inline with the code they test. Why not? See the original question here . Bigger files, less clear code Baqueta Answers (63 votes): The only advantage I can think of for inline tests would be reducing the number of files to be written. With modern IDEs this really isn't that big … [Read more...] about Why not write tests inline with code?
