Paul Krugman: Calling Literatures From The Vasty Deep (NY Times Blog)
Noah Smith has a very nice essay on how to deal with people who try to ward off serious criticism of their ideas by appealing to a "vast literature" you don't know. As he says, sometimes there are vast literatures of nonsense, or at any rate of dubious quality, that mainly serve to protect vested intellectual interests.

We need to understand what made Trump possible. (THRILLIST)

Your birthday gifts you a Zodiac sign, a generation, a gemstone, a Chinese animal avatar, a spiritual celebrity twin born the same day, or just your own personal holiday to tide you over until the next national day off. But why stop there? Your entire birth year deserves a symbolic movie, too, the BIGGEST film from a 12-month window that surely says something about where you've come from, and who you've become.

Andrew Tobias: A World Without Work
Along with climate change and maybe one or two others, the biggest theme we face, it seems to me, is how to organize ourselves to rejoice in - not implode over - the astonishing wealth and well-being technology is rushing to offer.

Yuval Noah Harari: The meaning of life in a world without work (The Guardian)
The crucial problem isn't creating new jobs. The crucial problem is creating new jobs that humans perform better than algorithms. Consequently, by 2050 a new class of people might emerge - the useless class. People who are not just unemployed, but unemployable.

Lucy Mangan on why feeling beautiful starts with your thoughts (Stylist)
I once went out for six months or so with a very good-looking man. People used to eye him appreciatively across the pub and then, when they caught sight of me, their expressions would change to ones of slight bafflement and concern. What, you could see them wonder, was going on? What hideous defect was he hiding that secretly evened the score between us? Or was he a kind volunteer on some sort of genetic outreach programme, seeking to redistribute the world's attractiveness resources?

Trivia Question from Yesterday

What is the term for the solid form of carbon dioxide?

       Dry Ice                                                      Source

Dry ice, sometimes referred to as "cardice" (chiefly by British chemists), is the solid form of carbon dioxide. It is used primarily as a cooling agent. Its advantages include lower temperature than that of water ice and not leaving any residue (other than incidental frost from moisture in the atmosphere). It is useful for preserving frozen foods where mechanical cooling is unavailable.

Dry ice sublimates at -78.5 °C (-109.3 °F) at Earth atmospheric pressures. This extreme cold makes the solid dangerous to handle without protection due to burns caused by freezing (frostbite). While generally not very toxic, the outgassing from it can cause hypercapnia (abnormally elevated carbon dioxide levels in the blood) due to buildup in confined locations.        Source

Six Siblings Are His Heirs


A judge ruled Friday that Prince's six siblings are the heirs to his estate, a key step in the more than year-old battle over the pop legend's fortune and vast trove of unreleased songs.

Kevin Eide, the judge in Carver County, Minnesota, where Prince died suddenly in April 2016 at his Paisley Park estate, said that the "Purple Rain" star's heirs were his sister Tyka Nelson and five half-siblings.

"The heirs of the estate are determined to be Omarr Baker, Alfred Jackson, Sharon Nelson, Norrine Nelson, John R. Nelson and Tyka Nelson," the order read.

In practical terms, the ruling will not immediately hand over Prince's fortune -- which is estimated to be worth up to $300 million -- to his siblings.

Instead, it starts a one-year process in which people who claim to be related to Prince can still make their appeals, but be definitively excluded if the judge does not accept their case.

Arrests Up More Than 150 percent

Undocumented Immigrants

In the 100 days since DonaldTrump (R-Corrupt) signed an executive order outlining U.S. immigration enforcement priorities, Immigration and Customs Enforcement agents arrested nearly 40 percent more undocumented immigrants than during the same period a year ago - whether or not they had criminal records, immigration officials said Wednesday.

According to ICE data, deportation officers arrested 41,318 individuals on civil immigration charges between Jan. 22 and April 29, or 37.6 percent more than the 30,028 arrests made Jan. 24, 2016, and April 30, 2016 - an average of more than 400 per day.

But while the Trump administration initially said it would focus on undocumented immigrants with criminal records, the figures released Wednesday show that the arrests of those without criminal records have more than doubled this year. Between Jan. 22 and April 29, ICE arrested 10,845 undocumented immigrants without criminal records, compared to 4,242 during the same time period last year - a jump of more than 150 percent.

Amnesty International said the raids raised "grave human rights concerns," and called for an immediate suspension of the executive order to "ensure that people's human rights are protected."

Trump said that the ICE raids were simply part of his campaign promise to crack down on "bad hombres."

Met Its Match

Global Seed Vault

The Global Seed Vault is sometimes called the doomsday vault, as it is meant to store the Earth's genetic bounty in the event of a natural or human-made disaster that wipes out vital crops needed to to sustain human and animal populations.

With a capacity to store 4.5 million crop varieties and 2.5 billion seeds, it's billed as the world's largest collection of crop diversity.

While the designers of the vault seem to have taken the possibilities of nuclear wars and global pandemics into account, they may have given too little thought to one other serious threat: global warming.

The vault was purposefully constructed far away from major population centers, and was built into a ice-covered mountainside in Spitsbergen, Norway. The seed collection, currently numbering between 800,000 and 900,000 samples, is kept at a chilly temperature of minus-18 degrees Celsius, or about 0 degrees Fahrenheit.

The frozen soil surrounding the vault, known as permafrost, however, may turn out to be the vault's undoing as air and sea temperatures rise due to human-caused global warming. According to a report on Friday in The Guardian, a series of highly unusual wintertime heat waves during the 2016-17 winter resulted in enough thawing of the permafrost that water rushed into the vault's entrance.

Auction Record


A Japanese billionaire bought a Basquiat masterpiece for $110.5 million in New York on Thursday, setting a new auction record for the 20th century great nearly 30 years after his death, Sotheby's said.

The 1982 "Untitled" of a skull-like head in oil-stick, acrylic and spray paint on a giant canvas was the star lot of the auction season this May, which wraps Friday with more than $1 billion in sales.

Sotheby's said it was snapped up by the same Japanese entrepreneur, 41-year-old Yusaku Maezawa, who set the previous Jean-Michel Basquiat auction record last year, dropping $57.3 million on a self-portrait.

The $110.5 million price tag was a record for any US artist at auction and the highest at auction for a post-1980 artwork, Sotheby's said.

Basquiat, born in Brooklyn to Haitian and Puerto Rican parents died in 1988 of an overdose aged just 27 after a fleeting eight-year career.

Fires Racist Host

Fox "News"

Fox "News" grandee Bob Beckel has been fired after allegedly making racist remarks towards a black employee.

The Five host has a history of attracting controversy, having once referred to Chinese nationals as "Chinamen" live on air.

In addition to a number of sexual abuse allegations, the network is also facing a racial discrimination lawsuit brought by 23 current and former employees.

The lawyers handling the race case, Douglas Wigdor and Jeanne Christense, said Mr Beckel was fired because of an offensive comment he made to a black IT technician who came to service his computer earlier this week.

Mr Wigdor said Mr Beckel "stormed out of his office" when the man came to fix his machine, "telling our client that he was leaving his office because he was black".

Hastert Law


Illinois is set to eliminate the statute of limitations in child sex-abuse cases, a change prosecutors and a victim of former U.S. House Speaker Dennis "Sweaty Wrestler™" Hastert (R-Pedophile) called for after Hastert was imprisoned for violating banking laws while trying to silence a student he abused decades ago.

The Illinois House unanimously approved the legislation Thursday, sending it to Republican Gov. Bruce Rauner, who supports it.

A federal judge dubbed Hastert "a serial child molester" at his sentencing last year, saying the former speaker sexually abused at least four former students at Yorkville High School in suburban Chicago from 1965 to 1981.

But Illinois law, which states victims of sex abuse have 20 years from their 18th birthday to report the crime so it can be prosecuted, prevented prosecutors from charging Hastert with sex abuse.

Instead he was charged with banking violations as he withdrew thousands of dollars, starting in 2010, to pay what was supposed to be millions in hush money to a victim. He was sentenced to 15 months in prison.



Deep Beneath Mount Dora's Streets Lies A Colossal Cold War Secret


Judge Dismisses Discrimination Suit


A court in Texas has dismissed a lawsuit by the family of a Muslim teen who was invited to the White House by Barack Obama after having constructed a clock that police mistook for a bomb.

Ahmed Mohamed, who was 14 at the time, became an internet sensation after being handcuffed and detained for hours for bringing his "invention" -- a circuit board wired to a digital display -- to school in the Texas city of Irving, near Dallas.

He was charged with making a "hoax bomb," though the charge was later dropped. Ahmed said he merely wanted to show his work to a new teacher to impress her.

The Irving school system suspended Ahmed for three days even after determining that his clock was harmless. The lawsuit contended he was discriminated against because of his race or religion (his parents immigrated from Sudan).

But in a decision Thursday, federal judge Sam Lindsay found that the plaintiffs had offered no facts "from which this court can reasonably infer that any (Irving school district) employee intentionally discriminated against A.M. based on his race or religion."

Republican Nirvana


Illinois' unpaid bill backlog has hit a record high of $14.3 billion as the legislature nears a May 31 budget deadline, the state comptroller's office said on Wednesday.

The bill pile jumped from $13.3 billion after the governor's budget office this week reported more than $1 billion in liabilities held at state agencies, the comptroller said.

Illinois is limping toward the June 30 end of its second straight fiscal year without a complete budget due to an impasse between Republican Governor Bruce Rauner and Democrats who control the legislature.

"It's clear the Rauner Administration has been holding bills at state agencies in an attempt to mask some of the damage caused by the governor's failure to fulfill his constitutional duty and present a balanced budget," Comptroller Susana Mendoza, a Democrat, said in a statement, adding that the governor's office was keeping lawmakers in the dark about the true size of the backlog.

Lawmakers face a May 31 deadline to pass budget bills with simple-majority votes. The Senate on Wednesday passed pieces of a long-awaited package to stabilize state finances, including budgets for the current and upcoming fiscal years, authorization to borrow $7 billion to pay down the bill backlog and an overhaul to state pensions.



The Wild Legacy of America's Most Eccentric Roadside Attraction - Atlas Obscura


Legal Scholars Debate


On Wednesday morning, as the grave and unpleasant topic of impeachment entered the American political conversation, the leading conservative legal group convened its annual daylong meeting just blocks from the White House.

The Federalist Society handed out media packets to reporters that included a 2014 news article about how the group was at that time discussing the possible impeachment of President Barack Obama for "constitutional excesses."

But when it came to the current White House occupant and the debate over possible obstruction of justice related to the FBI's investigation into Russian interference in the 2016 election, one of the Federalist Society's founding members was unequivocal in his support of Donald Trump (R-Crooked).

McIntosh defended Trump's reported request of former FBI Director James Comey to drop an investigation into Russian contacts with Trump's former national security adviser Michael Flynn.
