How to decarbonize America — and the world

Ramez Naam Contributor More posts by this contributor The Ultimate Interface Is Your Brain The Green New Deal has burst onto the American stage, spurring more conversation about – and aspiration for – ambitious climate policy than at any point in at least a decade. I’m glad to see it. Suddenly, climate is on the agenda, and ambitions for climate policy are higher than perhaps at any point in US history. The Green New Deal is a resolution...

Could Daniel Harding Finally Hit It Big In The US?

The English conductor, who started out as a wunderkind protégé of Simon Rattle in Birmingham, has a solid career in Europe, but he had a difficult time when he debuted with the big American orchestras in the ’00s. Now 43, he’s in the States leading the Royal Concertgebouw Orchestra on its tour. Can he find success here? Zachary Woolfe talks to Harding, and to such observers as Rattle and Deborah Borda. – The New York Times

Millennials Killed Napkins, But They're Resuscitating Prenups

Millennials have killed a lot of things. (What can a napkin do that a paper towel can't? And canned tuna? Please. What's the point?) And yet, from these ashes a rebirth has sprung. Millennials — those of selfie, signature pink, and selling-out fame — are getting prenups.A 2016 study conducted by the American Academy of Matrimonial Lawyers found that 51% of polled attorneys saw an increase in prenuptial agreements among millennial couples in recent years — with contracts most commonly citing “pr...

From Two Murder Victims to One: It Didn’t Take Long for New York’s Radical Abortion Bill to Show its Deadly Consequences

The horror of abortion seems to appear daily and in ever deadlier form in the nation’s headlines as states across the country pledge their support for late-term abortion laws. These laws would essentially allow for abortion right up until the moment a child is born. New laws in New York and Rhode Island, as well as proposed legislation in Virginia and Illinois, represent a new chapter in the pro-abortion movement, which endeavors to make the womb the most unsafe place for any baby in the United ...

Sixteen percent of U.S. adults own a smartwatch

The latest figures out of NPD show a continued uptick in smartwatch sales, here in the States. The category has been a rare bright spot in an overall flagging wearable space, and the new numbers show gains pretty much across the board. In fact, the study puts smartwatch ownership at 16 percent among U.S. adults as of December — that figure is up from 12 percent a year prior. Unsurprisingly, it’s a younger demo driving that growth — specifically 18-34-year-olds, where smartwatch ownership is ...

Whicker: A free-flowing day at the races for trainer Simon Callaghan

ARCADIA — The real River Boyne flows 70 miles through farm country, and into the Irish Sea. The horse named River Boyne flows unimpeded around Santa Anita Park, and then comes ashore in mighty fashion at the finish line. At least that was his history. River Boyne was 6-0 at Santa Anita until Saturday in the Thunder Road Stakes, when jockey Flavian Prat ran up against a dam. Well, a colt, actually, but Prat got boxed in and watched True Valour, another Irish representative, swoop in for victory. ...

Duchess of Sussex visit leads to first international donations for sex workers charity

Until recently the Bristol-based project One25 had been a little-known charity quietly trying to improve the lives of vulnerable sex workers. But now, following a visit by the Duchess of Sussex, it has found fame across the world, even receiving its first ever donations from overseas. In an example of what is being called ‘the Meghan effect’ the charity has been sent hundreds of pounds from donors in the US, New Zealand and Jamaica. Donations have also come in from Switzerland and Canada. Photo...

Symposium: 1 First Street, NE, Punxsutawney, PA

Tyler Green is the solicitor general of Utah. My last contribution to a SCOTUSblog symposium on political gerrymandering used homemade bad theater to depict how a Supreme Court decision setting a standard for political-gerrymandering claims would change life for state legislators and their attorneys. The court dodged this issue in Gill v. Whitford. But the issue has returned this term in Rucho v. Common Cause and Lamone v. Benisek. These events evoke a seasonally appropriate, classic film — Grou...

Blast From the Past: Vanilla tea

Have you ever had a cup of tea infused with real vanilla?  It is one of my ideas of heaven on earth and I have been on a quest for years after first tasting it.  In 1985, I visited my friend Herta in Cologne, Germany and one afternoon we stopped at a quaint tea shop near the river.  Herta asked for vanilla tea, and the clerk opened a large brass tin.  The delicate and fresh fragrance of vanilla wafted through the air.  Back home, we brewed a pot of the vanilla tea and my first sip was sublime. ...

5 Reasons I Didn’t Enjoy Teaching In Korea

If you’ve ever googled “working abroad,” you’ve almost certainly come across teaching positions in South Korea. The online job boards are always full of available positions, the pay is good, and the benefits include cheap healthcare and a year-end bonus. Usually, the only qualification needed is a bachelor’s degree in anything. A year out of college, I took one of those jobs posted online and moved across the world to the small city of Donghae-si. Based on every article and blog post I’d read ab...

Motorola’s G7 line arrives this spring, starting at $199

Weeks of leaks haven’t left much to the imagination. But for those waiting for the real thing, the latest iteration of Motorola’s budget G line just became officially official as of this morning — and with a few weeks to spare ahead of Mobile World Congress. Of course, the Moto G7 line isn’t really aimed at the MWC crowd. That show tends to be far more focused on premium flagships, while, as Motorola put it to me ahead of launch, this line is for “people who say, ‘I don’t need all this phone...

Solo Female Travel in Mexico — Is it Safe?

Is it safe for a woman to travel alone in Mexico? ABSOLUTELY. Mexico gets a undeserved bad reputation for travel, particularly in the United States. Much of this is due to the cable news environment with its exaggerated narratives that Mexico is full of drug cartels and murderous immigrants. This is not what Mexico is actually like. In fact, the real Mexico is so different that you’ll be stunned. My name is Kate and I write about solo female travel for a living. And I’ve spent a lot of time tra...

First, a medical emergency — and then CPS takes your child

Diane Redleaf led a symposium at Cato Unbound in November in which I participated (more here and here) on the formidable power of Child Protective Services. And now The Atlantic has published an article in which Redleaf explores some of themes of her newly published book They Took the Kids Last Night: How the Child Protection System Puts Families at Risk. Not surprisingly, there are horror stories galore: After detecting a second possible rib fracture, Texas CPS authorities demanded that the fa...

How to Brighten the Path to Prosperity… Even in a Dark Tunnel

Let me share a story with you: My friend chose to sacrifice himself and stay behind for work reasons when his family immigrated to the States a few years ago. It was a difficult decision I’m sure, but one that was necessary (I’m told) due to financial constrains. His son was 14 at the time but he was always upset. I remember one evening while we were over for dinner, he asked his mom out loud “Why can’t we be rich?” That was then. In a few short years, my friend’s son completely changed. He is ...

Older Gun Owners Have An Alternative To AARP

David Codrea: While not exactly buried, it does take a bit of digging on the AARP website to locate the association’s Policy Book, and then to narrow it down further to find its position on guns: “Congress should eliminate gaps in and strengthen enforcement of the Brady Handgun Violence Prevention Act and other federal gun laws. States should enact legislation to eliminate gaps in and strengthen enforcement of federal and state gun laws, particularly with regard to possession by juveniles, convi...

Meghan Markle wrote uplifting notes on bananas bound for sex workers in need

Meghan, Duchess of Sussex, is giving back to the community and adding her own personal touch along the way. On Friday, she and Prince Harry, Duke of Sussex, visited the One25 organization in Bristol, which works to "reach out to women trapped in or vulnerable to street sex-work, supporting them to break free and build new lives away from violence, poverty and addiction." During the unplanned visit, the Duchess helped volunteers pack bags of food for women in need. As they went about the work, ...

Meet The Mixologist & Entrepreneur Reimagining London’s Food Scene
