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. B...

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...

Morton to Rays and a Tanner-for-Tanner trade at meetings

LAS VEGAS (AP) — An All-Star starter to the relief-reliant Rays, a Tanner-for-Tanner trade and a Scott Boras sighting. Intrigue at the winter meetings, but not much impact. Not yet, anyway.

Atlas Obscura’s Thoughtful “Bugsgiving” Takeaways

One may not be aware that the Thursday before Thanksgiving happens to be “Bugsgiving.” Writer Ella Morton dove into the holiday, at a 10-course banquet in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, spearheaded by chefs Joseph Yoon and David George Gordon and part of the Brooklyn Bugs Festival. The edible insects were aplenty—as are her insights. From lotus chips with scorpions to pear salad with Changbai ants and so much more, Morton explored …

Where to find the best vegetarian and vegan food in the San Fernando Valley

There was a time when being a vegetarian, or even eating a vegetarian meal, opened you up to scorn and ridicule. The 19th century physician Sir Robert Hutchinson rather sourly observed, “Vegetarianism is harmless enough, though it is apt to fill a man with wind and self-righteousness.” The professionally acerbic (and very heavy-smoking) wit Fran Lebowitz lets us know, “Large, naked, raw carrots are acceptable as food only to those who live in hutches eagerly awaiting Easter.” (She’s also good fo...

Whicker: Kershaw is signed and sealed, and has plans to deliver

“Clayton, have you given any thought to the fact that this might be your last game as a Dodger?” The question was as predictable as a post-season flyover, whenever a series got to a certain point and Clayton Kershaw was the next guy up. It turned out that the answer was “yes.” Kershaw had thought about it, and rejected it. As soon as Christian Vazquez jumped into Chris Sale’s arms to celebrate Boston’s championship, Kershaw began thinking about a blue 2019. On Friday the Dodgers announced that K...

"Advise and consent" or "advice and consent"?

Which is it? I'm hearing "advice and consent" — the nouns — but I write "advise and consent" — the verbs. I prefer the sound of "the Senate's advise-and-consent role" (which I wrote here and here). Kavanaugh, testifying, told the Senators, "You have replaced ‘advice and consent’ with search and destroy." He said "advice," even at the cost of losing parallelism. "Search and destroy" are verbs. If nouns and not verbs are called for, he should have said "You have replaced ‘advice and consent’ with ...

There’s new evidence confirming bias of the “father of scientific racism” (ars technica)

Enlarge / The Morton skull collection at the University of Pennsylvania. (credit: Steve Minicola/University of Pennsylvania) Newly discovered handwritten documentation sheds new light on an ongoing scientific controversy regarding a famous collection of nearly 1,000 skulls amassed by a 19th-century Philadelphia physician. Dubbed the "American Golgotha," the collection is the work of Samuel Morton, who used them to compare the brain size of different racial groups in the 1830s and 1840s. Paul W...

A new take on the 19th-century skull collection of Samuel Morton

After unearthing and analyzing handwritten documentation from scientist Samuel Morton, a doctoral candidate drew a new conclusion about the infamous 19th-century collection: though Morton accurately measured the brain size of hundreds of human skulls, racist bias still plagued his science.

Samantha Morton: ‘Maybe I was the first person to publicly answer Weinstein’

The actor on speaking out against the film mogul’s bullying in 2003, the cost to her career and why she has stayed quiet over #MeToo2003 feels like a long time ago. But Samantha Morton remembers it well. She was supposed to star in the Terry Gilliam film The Brothers Grimm, and yet she didn’t. The reasons were not the kind openly discussed in the film business of the 00s. But Morton discussed them. She talked publicly about the fact Harvey Weinstein had ordered Gilliam not to cast her.
