WA ‘bump stock buyback’ funded as OR braces for ban initiative

Bump fire stocks, like this one pictured in a YouTube screen snip from Central Texas Survival, are being “bought back” in Washington State. U.S.A. –-( While Washington State lawmakers have approved funding for a “bump stock buyback” at $150 apiece, gun owners in neighboring Oregon are already bracing for a fight next year when anti-gunners will push a measure aimed at banning “a variety of semi-automatic firearms,” as reported by KATU in Portland. In the Evergreen State—which ne...

What Is It Like To Turn On A Light?

So I am something of a philosophy nerd, with a particular affection for late 19th/early 20th century European philosophers, who had a lamentable habit of either turning out to be Nazis or becoming victims of the Nazis. One important strand of this Nazi/Nazi-victim movement in European thought is phenomenology, which tried to describe in painful detail and using all-original categories what the experience of everyday life for both persons and things was like. As it happened, the experience of...

Where to find the best cocktails in the San Fernando Valley

I recently read a book called “Imbibe!” by cocktail and spirits writer David Wondrich, a polymath with many advanced degrees in many disciplines, an insatiable curiosity and, far as I can tell, the liver of an ox. In the course of researching this deeply in-depth history of the cocktail, he apparently tasted every one of them, many times. The book is a history of not just the cocktail, but also the punch bowl, juleps, fizzes, sours, toddies, slings and innumerable libations that have long been f...

Comment on baked buffalo wings by Colleen

Amazingly delicious! I told myself I was making these for my husband, who’s from Buffalo and pines for good wings from time to time. I have never been a wing person and I vaguely wondered what I would eat. Turns out, I easily put away as many of these as my husband did. They are so tasty, moist on the inside, and addictively crispy on the outside. I will definitely make (and eat!) them again. I let them dry out overnight and used Morton’s kosher salt, going with a scant 2.5 ts for 3 pounds of wi...

Comment on baked buffalo wings by Alexa

Ok so we made these wings (5 pounds of them!) and they turned out SUPER DUPER salty. We did the conversion on the salt too for Morton’s instead of Diamond. The only reason we could come up with is that we used frozen wings? We will try again with about 1/4 the salt before drying. Anyone else had this issue or any other suggestions?

New Titles Entering The Public Domain

January 1st of 2019 marked the first day on which a plethora of titles originally published in 1923 will finally enter the public domain, (meaning they can be used for free and without permission) after Congress extended the copyright term for an additional twenty years when they were originally supposed to be released in 1999.

The Mummy – review

Director: Alex Kurtzman Release date: 2017 Contains spoilers This was the second false start of the Universal monsters’ reboot (dubbed Dark Universe). The first attempt, Dracula Untold, was so unsuccessful that it was allegedly dropped from the continuity. This did not set the cinematic world alight and the Dark Universe again looked unlikely. One issue was the push in both of these films at the action adventure, rather than horror. Whilst they can be used in various ways, the classic monsters ...

Geoengineering could solve our climate problems if anyone allowed it

This weekend, I finished reading Oliver Morton’s The Planet Remade (thanks to reader Eliot Peper for recommending it). Morton has a multitude of goals with the book, but there were two I think are deeply valuable. First, geoengineering is a plausible approach to solving our climate problems this century, and second, engineering the climate generates tough policy challenges, but also opportunities to make the planet more equitable. TechCrunch is experimenting with new content forms. This is a rou...

The rise of (societal) resilience tech

If you follow millennials on Twitter (and god help you), then you know that Anne Helen Petersen’s piece this past weekend “How Millennials Became The Burnout Generation” struck a deep chord for many. It’s longform and detailed, but Petersen’s primary thesis is that my generation has been dumped into one of the worst moments for economic and social mobility in recent memory (global financial crisis, etc.), which has led us to massively over-optimize our lives to try to extract any value we can.

Comment on ciambellone, an italian tea cake by emilymberry

Made this as directed using 2 and 1/2 teaspoons of regular iodized Morton’s table salt and I’m sad to report that is was quite salty. not inedibly so but it tasted almost savory, like I was expecting cheese or something. If you’re using regular table salt, I recommend to reduce it a bit. the glaze is delicious and it had a good texture though.

Happy Public Domain day: for real, for the first time in 20 years!

Every year, Jennifer Jenkins and Jamie Boyle from the Duke Center for the Public Domain compile a "Public Domain Day" list (previously) that highlights the works that are not entering the public domain in America, thanks to the 1998 Sonny Bono Copyright Term Extension Act, which hit the pause button on Americans' ability to freely use their artistic treasures for two decades -- a list that also included the notable works entering the public domain in more sensible countries of the Anglophere, l...

Gift Card Bonus Deals Roundup – Northwest & National Restaurants & Retail Stores!

One way to stretch your savings at stores is by taking advantage of special bonus deals for gift cards that come around during the holidays.  This is a great strategy for those stores where it’s hard to find sales or specific items that are on your Christmas list or just a much-needed item that never go on sale. Or maybe the latest technology device that came out that won’t be on sale for quite some time!  All it takes is a little strategizing to figure out how to maximize these gift cards to y...
