'Watch the Destruction of Pompeii by Mount Vesuvius, Re-Created with Computer Animation (79 AD).'

A good disaster story never fails to fascinate — and, given that it actually happened, the story of Pompeii especially so.

No multi-tasking today. Work on one thing at a time, and give each task your full focus.

The Italians have already done Trump. Maybe there's some history there we could learn from.

Excellent, informative, history-packed program.
"In politics, you campaign in poetry and govern in prose," said Mario Cuomo, former governor of New York and perpetual presidential hope of liberal Democrats. But was Mario right? In America, politicians very often campaign on fear. And when that fear is stoked to irrational levels, it has a clinical name - paranoia. Fifty years ago in a classic essay, American political scientist Richard Hofstadter, explored the Paranoid Style - "an old and recu...

Philosophy can be funny. 
We all hate getting yelled at, especially when we mess up. Fortunately, there’s a solution: logical positivism was a philosophical revolution that introduced a new theory of meaning – one that shook philosophy to its core. Strangely enough, it can also give you a convenient way out of a sticky situation. About I Hope This Helps A wise man once said: ‘Philosophers have hitherto only interpreted the world in various ways; the point is to change it...

I think this kind of sums up Trumpism and the quandary the Republican party is in right now.

"But the conservative movement is equally under pressure. They thought their years of carefully growing and indoctrinating the right wing of the Republican Party had resulted in a common belief in a certain conservative ideology, strategic vision and commitment to a specific agenda. It turns out that a good number of the people they thought had signed on to their program just wanted someone to stick it to ethnic and racial minorities and make sure America is the biggest bad ass on the planet — authoritarian, white nationalism. If you’ve got a man who will deliver that you don’t need ideology. And he doesn’t need democracy.

The mystery is why all these smart conservatives didn’t see this coming. They unleashed this beast a long time ago with the hate radio and the media propaganda and the ruthless politics. It was only a matter of time before it turned on them." 
Conservative activists have spent a generation building up their movement — and the Donald is ruining it all

I have to say it is puzzling to see Paul Krugman supporting Hillary Clinton against Bernie Sanders, at least to people who read his writings. Krugman has repeatedly expressed more actual contempt f...

Actually, the problem is more likely that the writer doesn't understand Paul Krugman -- or rather, just dismisses Paul Krugman's points.  As a general rule, it appears to me that Clinton's supporters completely understand the appeal of Sanders, but are looking for something more, while Sanders supporters don't understand Clinton supporters at all, and are completely unaware of what Sanders lacks.

UNKNOWN LOCATION—The brightly lit, stark-white room gradually coming into focus as he regained consciousness, GOP presidential candidate Marco Rubio reportedly awoke in the Koch brothers’ secret compound Thursday and reached suddenly to his throbbing head to discover a cold metal device implanted behind his left ear.
