The ESG-Innovation Disconnect: Evidence from Green Patenting

Energy-producing firms are more likely to produce “blockbuster” green patents than other firms. Yet energy firms are excluded from many environmental, social, and governance (ESG) funds, and are the targets of divestiture campaigns whose stated aims often include green energy innovation.

FBI Warns Schools to Buckle Up for More Cyberattacks

The FBI and the Cybersecurity and Infrastructure Security Agency (CISA) recently warned that ransomware attacks on K-12 entities had risen dramatically during the 2nd half of 2020 and that these and other cyberattacks are likely to continue over the next year. This makes a lot of sense, given that—with remote learning…Read more...

Any San Francisco teacher who needs a second monitor can get one, via Two Screens for Teachers

Any teacher in the San Francisco Unified School District who needs a second monitor can request one free of charge from Two Screens for Teachers, the nonprofit that recently extended a similar privilege to Seattle educators. If you’re a teacher in SF, you can sign up here. Having a second monitor may sound like a power user move or luxury to some, but for teachers, whose days are essentially one giant group call, it’s a huge benefit to be able to put the call on one screen while the lesson and o...

Forbes: Why Reverse Mortgage Borrowers Make Mistakes

While Home Equity Conversion Mortgages (HECMs) have significant potential as financial tools for seniors who are trying to create cash flow in retirement, sometimes the benefits of HECMs can lead to a series of mistakes made by their borrowers. Access to an influx of cash can sometimes lead to irresponsible spending, with that cash chipped away and leaving little benefit for securing a senior’s retirement. This is according to Jack Guttentag, aka the “Mortgage Professor,” in a new column publ...

Practical starting points for a polymath

I’ve been reading The Polymath by Peter Burke over the holidays. I make no pretence of being any sort of polymath in the sense Burke describes, but as a generalist who likes diving in and out of various disciplines the subject definitely appealed. It didn’t disappoint, and there are some things in particular I thought I’d capture here as I think about them. There’s a list below of 24 factors that may have helped polymaths thrive which I’ve taken from the book, but added my own questions ...

LA Coounty ambulance response being compromised now by coronavirus surge

Hospitals across Los Angeles County have become so slammed with patients in recent weeks that county officials have instructed ambulances not to transport patients to the hospital with virtually no chance of survival and to preserve supplemental oxygen supplies by only administering it to people who desperately need it. While both directives did not deviate enormously from typical standards of care, they came as a precursor to possibly more instructions for health care providers to begin rationi...

Discover J.R.R. Tolkien’s Little-Known and Hand-Illustrated Children’s Book, Mr. Bliss

His were usually humorous stories, full of magic, and very often, they contained a connection to the children’s lives, because it was primarily for them that he invented them. –Sarah Zama The fact that “much of the inspiration of the Lord of the Rings came from [J.R.R. Tolkien’s] family,” Danielle Burgos writes at Bustle, has become an oft-repeated piece of trivia, especially thanks to such popular treatments of the author’s life as Humphrey Carter’s authorized biography, the Nicholas Hoult-sta...

"In city after city, from New York to New Orleans, charters have found ways to reach the children who have been most consistently failed by traditional schools."

"The evidence for their success has become overwhelming, with apolitical education researchers pronouncing themselves shocked at the size of the gains. What was ten years ago merely an experiment has become a proven means to develop the potential of children whose minds had been neglected for generations. And yet the second outcome of the charter-school breakthrough has been a bitter backlash within the Democratic Party. The political standing of the idea has moved in the opposite direction of t...

When Iggy Pop Published an Essay, “Caesar Lives,” in an Academic Journal about His Love for Edward Gibbon’s The Decline and Fall of the Roman Empire (1995)

Or at least that’s the case with the king of shocking, primal idiocy, Iggy Pop.

Rome’s Colosseum Will Get a New Retractable Floor by 2023 — Just as It Had in Ancient Times

Rome wasn’t built in a day. But one of its most renowned attractions could be returned to its first-century glory in just two years — or at least, part of one of its most famous attractions could be. In our time, the Colosseum has long been a major Roman tourist destination–one that lacks even a proper floor. Visitors today see right through to its underground hypogeum, an impressive mechanical labyrinth used to convey gladiators into the arena, as well as a variety of other performers, willing...
