This is not an issue that I thought could be made funny
Props to John Oliver: he actually made 13 smart, informed minutes on net neutrality incredibly funny.

How the new climate rule actually works
The key is that there's not one policy here — every state will have a different target.

+Vittorio Abr, The average THC percentage in medical marijuana varies by strain. 10% is the number that most researchers say is average these days, but some strains are as high as 16%.
Yes they sell all the range types in terms of THC concentration.

The most fascinating, I think, is #18, which shows which countries are at risk of getting entirely disconnected from the internet.
Where the internet came from, how it works, and how it's used by people around the world

An incredible explainer on why Thailand experiences so many coups.
On Monday, May 19, Thailand's military declared martial law, seized control of some government agencies and media organizations, and went on the air to declare that the coup it had just performed was definitely not a coup. Three days later, on May 22, the head of the army went back on national TV to announce that, yes, actually, this was a coup after all. Thailand is a democracy, if a weak one, so this is really not good.

Hey I loved & ∑-ly Agree with your Esposé +Ezra Klein !!
But for you et al. who actually Care about the "Über-Carbonation" of Earth's BioSphere, its Atmosphere e Especially Oceans – there IS some mui clever Chemical Engineering  ∑Capable of Solving this urgent problem.  
Please permit me to copy you on a very recent comment to +Richard Batty's thread about _Atomic Insights_  (appended): 
    "Richard,
You really "Hit the nail on Head" in your Writing on so-called Renewables:
    "• the Only Tech that can currently and "near-futurely" completely replace Fossil-Fuel Burning for Ênergy (which "Ê" = Heat & e-Power) is Nuclear;
   "•  the Only Núc Tech capable of lucrative, truly subsidy-free "Ēcō/Éc" Success (Ēcōlógical and Écǝnómic) is Molten-sal. Science:
. . . . . . bit.ly/ms-sci !"

You are a delusional fool. Are you a scientist? If not why are you making such unsupported claims?

A lot of the political journalism you read today was influenced by Tapped.

Monday is actually going to be a really important day in Obama's presidency.
Next week is going to be a big one for US energy and climate policy.

A mere 4 percent of kids born into the bottom quintile make it into the top one.
In a perfect meritocracy, where people who work equivalently hard are just as likely to get ahead, our parents’ income should have no impact on our own. 80th of the poorest fifth of kids should escape that share of the income distribution of adults. 20 percent should make it to the top fifth. So do […]

Love that "Alabama" came from the Choctaw word for "plant-clearers." And it's possible -- though not certain -- that "Iowa" means "sleepy ones." #maps
The Wikipedia page on this is just awesome. (Via Reddit, which has a great comment thread on the subject.)
