Salman Rushdie: India Is No Longer The Country I Wrote About In ‘Midnight’s Children’

“When I wrote this book I could associate big-nosed Saleem with the elephant-trunked god Ganesh, the patron deity of literature, among other things, and that felt perfectly easy and natural even though Saleem was not a Hindu. All of India belonged to all of us, or so I deeply believed. And still believe, even though the rise of a brutal sectarianism believes otherwise. … Right now, in India, it’s midnight again.” – The Guardian

Extreme heat and flooding are wiping out 70% of chili harvests in one of the largest pepper-growing regions in the world

The wholesale chili market in Kunri, Pakistan, is one of the largest in the world. Kashif Khan for Business Insider Today The town of Kunri, Pakistan, is famous for chili farming and is home to one of the largest chili markets in the world.

Which Test cricketer was the biggest burden to their side?

Not every cricketer is great, or good, or useful. This begs a question. Who routinely contributed the least to their team? Which Test cricketer was the biggest burden? Back in November, we took a look at the worst Test bowling averages of all time. As you might imagine, quite a lot of the contenders were part-timers. You can bowl very badly and still be well worth a place in a Test team purely on the strength of your batting. You can also be a poor bowler and offset your inadequacies to ...

Economists Calculate the True Value of Facebook To Its Users in New Study

A series of auctions revealed that Facebook users value the company's service so highly that it would take on average more than $1,000 to convince them to deactivate their accounts for a year, according to a recent paper published in PLOS One. From a report: This doesn't mean much for the company's stock market valuation, but it's a good indicator that people find value in Facebook regardless of the many concerns raised recently. The paper started out as two separate studies. Jay Corrigan, an ec...

A 15-year-old hacked the secure Ledger crypto wallet

A 15-year-old programmer named Saleem Rashid discovered a flaw in the popular Ledger hardware wallet that allowed hackers to grab secret PINs before or after the device was shipped.

2nd Circuit provides plan for employers to win misclassification cases

In Saleem v. Corporate Transportation Group (2nd Cir. 4/12/17) [pdf], the 2nd Circuit Court of Appeals considered whether a company properly classified a group of black-car taxi drivers as independent contractors, or whether it should have classified them as employees. In ruling for the company, the court gifted employers a game plan to use when classifying workers to minimize risk in making the key determination of whether a worker is an employee or an independent contractor. In so rulin...

Imagine an Arab City: Saleem Haddad on "Guapa"

Guapa, the debut novel from Saleem Haddad, catches you off guard. He does a masterful job of immersing you into the story and getting you to identify with a character who could quite simply be seen as "other." While we can guess where Rasa, the protagonist, is at one point or another, specific names and places are left somewhat vague. When we asked Saleem if this was an intentional omission, he responded (wonderfully) with the following: Imagine an Arab city. Your mind may wander to images of pa...
