"Accusing the immensely popular game of "possessing the minds" of children while promoting Zionism and gambling, Saudi Arabia's Higher Committee for Scientific Research and Islamic Law issued the fatwa, or religious verdict, this weekend."

"In fact, 20 percent of all Title I money for poor students – $2.6 billion – ends up in school districts with a higher proportion of wealthy families."

this had some intresting numbers i never really thought about the scale of the school lunch program.
Of the five billion meals provided to 31 million students during the 2011-12 school year, 59 percent were free of charge, 9 percent were reduced price, and the other 33 percent were paid.

It's kind of hilarious that Canada has an Apology Act, but give it a read and tell me we don't also need this in the U.S.:

Friday night, 11pm, in a park filled with people wandering around looking for Pokemon:

Little girl tugging on her dad's pant leg: "I'm tired... I want to go home!"

It's just sad, I feel bad for her. She clearly does not have the commitment necessary to become a Pokemon master.

There is a fiery creature with a swirly shock of blond hair on its head lurking behind the podium on the floor of the Republican National Convention. In the world of “Pokémon Go,” the mobile gaming craze that has been sweeping the U.S. since its release, the stage where Donald Trump is set to formally

64 floppy drives, 8 hard disks and 2 scanners. // Sidenote: Back in the olden days at UCLA we used to play tunes on the 360/91 line printers. But the powers-that-be made us stop, because the process had an unfortunate tendency to destroy the expensive print chains. CCN (Campus Computing Network) just didn't have much of a sense of humor.
In 2011, a university student in Poland named Paweł Zadrożniak hooked up two floppy disk drives and started making music. Five years later, he’s assembled a full symphony.

Though an edited track and not a live performance, one of my favorite songs using computer storage mechanisms as instruments is from when Gizmodo ran a contest to make a song out of the sounds of failing hard drives.

Here's the winner: https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=Y3b7yV4CUaw

Monday, listening to the Republican National Convention on the radio:

Finn, hearing shouting in the crowd: "What going on?"
Me: "Oh, that's the Republican convention."
Finn: "What going on?"
Me: "A lot of people are unhappy about Trump's nomination."
Finn: "What going on?"
Me: "Well, some of them supported someone else, and a lot of people are upset because of the mean things Trump says."
Finn: "No daddy. What going ON?"
Me: "I... I have the same question, buddy."

The USDS costs a fraction of the Fed IT budget. It’s working. So why do gov contractors want it dead?

Bill Gates shared this map, showing bed net usage in Africa, part of his campaign to fight malaria:

https://twitter.com/BillGates/status/749619467466973184

It interesting to see usage waxing and waning. Here's a map of malaria rates in children 2-8 for comparison:

http://imgur.com/WgWlITP

Looking at two maps side by side is not exactly an in-depth analysis, but some things stand out, like bed net usage declining in Gabon around the same time that malaria started to increase.
@BillGates Simple yet powerful visualization, love it. Congratulations on the successful greater effort. ريم محمد أسعد® · Jul 3. ريم محمد أسعد® @reem_asaad. @BillGates Sir, it means that it took years just to have a tulle on their heads when their corrupt rulers are having everything else.

Faroe islanders were tired of waiting for Google Streetview, so they strapped cameras to sheep to do it themselves.

https://www.theguardian.com/travel/2016/jul/12/sheep-view-360-faroe-islands-google-mapping-project

The nice thing is, any one can add photospheres to Google Maps, so Sheep View is a totally reasonable way to get this done :)

Here's a nice one, though I don't know if it was taken by a sheep: https://goo.gl/maps/a7FaiDcRv8J2

Ha, you're right, unless they have very strange sheep in the Faroes.

They only give you seven minutes between paying and exiting, which is pretty hard to do when you are stuck in traffic to get out. Dirty and expensive.
