Impressive political ad for newcomer to Arkansas governor's race goes viral

Dr. Chris Jones is a nuclear physicist and minister who's running in the Arkansas governor's race against Sarah Huckabee Sanders. If this ad is any indication, Jones might just give the former Trump Whisperer a run for her money. Oh, and he's also the director of a makerspace/innovation hub, teaching 3D printing, CNC, laser cutting, and other "maker technologies" to the Arkansas workforce. — Read the rest

How James Taylor and Joni Mitchell inspired the musical romance of ‘Songs in Ursa Major’

When up-and-coming musician Jane Quinn and her band first encounter Vincent Ray, the legendary music producer stares right past her as if she doesn’t exist. When Quinn boldly stands up to Ray, it fuels much of the drama in Emma Brodie’s entertaining debut novel, “Songs In Ursa Major,” which imagines fictionalized versions of Joni Mitchell (Jane) and James Taylor (Jesse Reid). “We’ve been all been exposed to so much misogyny on such a grand scale for the past four or five years that you’re seein...

100 3D Artists Interpret the Same Scene of a Walking Person

Clinton Jones challenged his community of 3D artists to interpret a simple animation of a person walking with a heavy load. 2400 people participated and Jones collected the 100 renders for this video. What a fantastic illustration of the power of constraints and the abundance of human creativity. Ok, much of the imagery is borrowed from Star Wars and other sci-fi universes, but the stuff that isn’t is delightful. Even with no explicit narrative connection between the scenes, somehow this all...

Anti-slavery activist to get headstone on Altadena grave 129 years after her death

Ellen Garrison Clark lived a vibrant and meaningful life, as a Black anti-slavery activist, civil rights advocate and educator, but was buried 129 years ago in a nondescript grave without a headstone in Altadena.

It was the hottest day of the year in Southern California on Tuesday, June 15, and Wednesday could be about the same — not that your internal thermometer would likely recognize any small change. “If it’s 2 degrees warmer or 2 degrees cooler, it won’t make much of a difference to anyone but us, because we like numbers,” said Phil Gonsalves, a meteorologist with the National Weather Service in San Diego. “The more extreme the temperature is, the more difficult it is for our sensory mechanism to te...

Any Interest In Dougie Hamilton?

Formative, a student learning and analytics platform, raises $70M to challenge the summative, test-based approach to education

Tests are king in many school systems and other educational environments: they are seen as an efficient way to assess what knowledge students have retained, and how well they do on a level playing field where everyone has the same exam to take. Some, however, believe that system is flawed, and today a startup that’s built a platform to provide another way of assessing and teaching is announcing a big round of funding on the heels of strong growth for its approach.

Trading For Jack Eichel Or Seth Jones

Max Bultman of the Athletic answers some fan mail, For Eichel, one of the league’s top scorers under contract for five more years, the cost would be immense. It could mean a deal headlined by Lucas Raymond or Filip Zadina, the No. 6 pick this year, plus either another current top-six NHL forward or another high draft pick or top prospect. It’s possible Eichel’s neck injury changes that price a bit, but the safe assumption is that Buffalo will be able to command a mint for a 24-year-ol...

Senate Bill 2 is the wrong way to create a police decertification process

There’s no problem so terrible that the California Legislature cannot find a way to make it worse. That’s the story of Senate Bill 2, a legislative effort to create a process for decertifying problem law enforcement officers. California is one of only four states that doesn’t have a decertification system, and there’s a broad consensus, even among law enforcement unions, that this should be remedied. But leave it to the California Legislature to turn a police reform bill into an open vein that b...

Florida Sheriff's 'Intelligence-Led Policing' Effort Is Nothing More Than A Targeted Harassment Program (techdirt)

The Pasco County (FL) Sheriff's Office has been using a quasi-"pre-crime" program for years, supposedly as part of its overall "public safety" efforts. But it hasn't done much more than give officers an excuse to hassle people. It may publicly claim it's a smarter form of law enforcement that makes better use of limited resources to target problem areas and people. But it isn't. And the Sheriff's Office knows it. In reality, it's about hassling people until they "sue or move." That's what the ...
