Here's another article in danger of becoming an excuse for a flame war. Before it gets to that point, I'll share just for this observation: you can cherry-pick comments by anyone to make them sound ridiculous. That doesn't necessarily mean they are completely wrong, though in some cases, it might. So you really need to understand the full context of what they're about. So here we have this guy being picked on for the remark about deodorants and sneakers (BTW there are far more choices for the latter; obviously, this guy doesn't shop for kids) just like some picked on a candidate for saying "binders full of women." That being said, I don't endorse any candidate here.

Came across this quote today, “Anti-intellectualism has been a constant thread winding its way through our political and cultural life, nurtured by the false notion that democracy means that 'my ignorance is just as good as your knowledge.'”

"Mr. DiMaio said, the logistics industry will have to adapt to several broad trends:

Customers will soon be able to choose fulfillment options—from home to office, remote location or store—for almost any purchase. Mr. DiMaio said retailers may be able to coordinate deliveries to a specific area in a town and offer speedier service if the buyer agrees to receive a parcel at work rather than at home, for example.

Shipping from nearby store locations, rather than exclusively from warehouses or fulfillment centers, will become much more common.

Retailers will need to fulfill and ship orders seven days a week—no more weekday-only fulfillment.

Customers will not pay for standard shipping service. “If anybody is thinking they’re not going to be in the free-delivery business in several years, I would say you’re thinking about that wrong,” Mr. DiMaio said.

Same-day delivery will be available but customers will have to pay for it.

Crowdsourced services enabled by technology will help in the “final mile” of delivery, Mr. DiMaio said, “but it’s going to find its level—because that industry’s not going to let it be completely turned over to a map on a phone.”
The head of distribution at Office Depot says e-commerce competition and tech-savvy consumers are driving big changes in supply chains at retail companies.

Did Time's editor come from Al Jazeera? 
Time Magazine fails to include any mention of a Palestinian rocket attack from Gaza that prompted retaliatory Israeli air strikes.

I don't know why  this ends up with this picture; it's not even in the article. It creates an interesting mix of Hebrew script letter and mathematical equations. Perhaps the person who took it as a generic photo mistook the Hebrew for symbols.

Thanks, +Meirav M.  see from the tags a mention of professor Ron Lifshitz. That makes sense, as he's at Tel Aviv University. If I really wanted to investigate this further, I could even contact him via the info on his site, http://www.tau.ac.il/~ronlif/. But the mathematics, I'm sure, would be way beyond my level. Interestingly, his father is also a professor, and Ron links to his dad's site .http://chem.ch.huji.ac.il/~assa/

I was going to share an article to make a point but was so turned off by the comments that I decided to skip it. Really, it's incredible to me how quickly people revert to ad hominem attacks.

"But if SodaStream’s “crime” was to have a factory in the West Bank, and it is now moving to Israel proper, the issue would be resolved. The fact that it is not is a bold red flag for anyone seeking a two-state solution.

So here is some straight talk to help you out, Mr. Burston:

The BDS won’t say it supports two states because it doesn’t. The problem is not that the BDS is wishy-washy about its goals. It’s that peace is not one of them.
BDS does not distinguish between Israel and the West Bank. Its website states: “Anyone can boycott Israeli goods, simply by making sure that they don’t buy produce made in Israel or by Israeli companies. Campaigners and groups call on consumers not to buy Israeli goods and on businesses not to buy or sell them.” All of Israel is in its crosshairs.
The claim that BDS is “agnostic” about the conflict is a tactic to co-opt supporters of the two-state solution. The rhetoric speaks loudly and clearly. The term “occupied Palestinian land” in reference to pre-1967 is not the expression of an agnostic mindset.
How clear does the BDS have to be about it's true intentions before seemingly well-meaning people stop giving it the benefit of the doubt? A case in point is the recent article from Haaretz columnist Bradley Burston, who seems to genuinely want the BDS to...

Good news: polar bears can swim, and their verified and verifiable numbers are holding steady. One of my FB friends today posted one of those pathetic polar bear pictures, you know the ones that appear stranded on diminishing pieces of ice (as if the bears couldn't swim). So I did a bit of searching and found there is a whole site devoted to updates on polar bears that distinguishes between real figures, fudged data, and fabricated conclusions.  http://polarbearscience.com/. I'm all for saving the bears, but let's keep to the actual facts to make a case, please.

Exactly so +Paul Huber In fact, any real dip in the polar bear population that occurred happened 20, 30 years ago.

Well, not exactly. I saw this in my Twitter feed, " They didn't build the car by tweaking the horse." True, the horse wasn't tweaked, but the carriage was. If you go to any museum with really old cars, you'll see how much they resemble the horse-drawn carriages of the time. So while the source of power was all new, the basic design of the conveyance was based on an already existing paradigm. It took many incarnations to break away from the carriage design.  Another point about the evolution of the car is that the source of power shifted over time. Edison played around with an electric car, but it didn't take off, which is why we have the legacy of gas-powered cars.
