Good News Everyone!
 
Incredibly long ("near Infinite Jest -length"), data-heavy Vox post about the present and future economies of solar plus improved storage batteries. I didn't read this, but somebody out there will love it.

It's coming, there's no stopping it, and utilities are going to get crushed if they don't reform.

Hillary Clinton is the ultimate insider. Bernie Sanders is the ultimate outsider.

+John Powell  Yeah, I hadn't actually read the article. This reads perfectly fair to me.

+William Schar it's a staple of Bernie's platform that people are influenced by their incentives. In particular, politicians are influenced by the money they take from corporations. Calling Clinton out for taking almost a million dollars for giving three speeches (!!!) from a company she will be regulating is 100% on point, 0% character attack.

That said, I've seen some comments (not in this article) that Bernie's running ads claiming Clinton received corporate donor money based on very hokey logic; he needs to state the facts and apologize for the smear.

If you can't figure out how to use this village's sassy old woman martial arts teacher as a character in your game, I can't help you. 
 
Interesting glimpse here into one Indian martial arts tradition.
By Supriya Unni Nair Meenakshi Gurukkal crouched low, sword poised; her eyes unblinking as she faced her opponent in the mud-paved 'kalari' or arena. From the tree tops, a mynah's call resonated in the silence. In a flash she moved to attack, twirling her sword; metal clashing loudly as it made contact with a shield. At 74, she is possibly the oldest woman exponent of Kalaripayattu, the ancient martial arts from Kerala. She has been practising K...

A nice look at government corruption:

Article dates back to 2005, but still very, very relevant.
