Disgusting.

some parents whose children were not in his class made their attacks personal, telling him he would die young and spend eternity in hell. He also began receiving hate-filled letters and emails, including one copied to other teachers at the school, described homosexuality as a "birth defect" while accusing Currie of trying to "indoctrinate" children through "psycho-emotional rape."

Joel Johnson's analysis of gawker in the comments is the best thing ever.
Yesterday, more than 100 Gawker Media editorial employees voted on the question of whether to be represented by the Writers Guild of America, East for the purpose of collective bargaining—that is, whether we want to form a union. The results are in.

An interesting conversation here, especially about how #opensource  could work in different and better ways than it does now. 
Hi - Sumana Harihareswara here. You might remember me from [my April guest post about free/open source software, licensing, and codes of conduct in open communities]( In that piece I took a stab at...

Still not safe to eat sushi.

Done.
The Senate has passed the Fast Track trade bill, which would allow secret anti-user trade deals like the TPP to get rush approval and bypass full debate. Call now to urge your representatives to stand against the secrecy and oppose the TPP Fast Track.

Came across this book review of Seveneves by Neal Stephenson, which made me actually laugh out loud.
So the moon blows up. I mention this in passing, which I feel is appropriate, because in this book the moon blows up due to the actions of some presumably alien unknown agent, and this book gives negative fucks about the who or the why. Whatever, handwave, let's follow the admittedly harrowing ...

I read some of the amazon reviews on this book yesterday, and they align well with the review you link to. Overall, 4 stars, but plenty of 1 and 2 star reviews, many of the pointing to the first 2/3rds being great, and the last 1/3rd sucking. That was enough for me to pass on the book for now.

It sells organic produce to 15 or so local restaurants and through community-supported-agriculture shares, and grows flowers it sells wholesale. But even this small farm, Gilbert says, spends between $4,000 and $6,000 on plastic every year. Maybe more. It’s an environmental trade-off, she explains: Using plastic means saving water.
From acres of sheeting to miles of twine, farms use billions of pounds of plastic each year. What can we do to reduce the impact?

Recycling tricky plastics gets more economical in bulk. If they haven't already developed processes to recycle these plastics then tax each plastic type and fund type-corresponding research programs to do so. Once the processes are in place use the taxes to fund facility construction, then bulk collection.

Large menu with very traditional food; I recommend the brunches especially. Kid-friendly, too.

Loved the wide diversity of vegetarian dishes; my risotto came in undercooked and wasn't really improved upon.
