Voting rights advocates charge that local election boards are staging an end run around a federal court ruling by writing rules that discourage African-American voters.

This is a beautiful map full-sized by the way. The spot of ground I'm sitting on right now in the West San Fernando Valley was just empty space when that map was drawn. (This area was initially developed a few years later.)

You know what really grinds my gears? When miniature desk sets sold on Amazon are so convincing they trick me into thinking they’re real desk sets for living human children.

It's oddly fascinating looking at very tiny versions of very boring things. I especially appreciate all the arrangement suggestions depicted in the images for 'Hasegawa FA02 Meeting Room Desk & Chair Plastic Model Kit, 1:12 scale'. Hamsters for scale might help.

I'm in favor of building the Mexico wall -- surrounding Trump while he's in Mexico today.

And making matters worse, it's becoming more difficult -- essentially impossible in some cases -- to root some new devices from particular carriers so that you can install AOSP builds yourself. The Note 4 from AT&T is still locked down. You're not really buying these devices in such cases, because you can't control them.
Your phone maker, its chipmaker, and Google all share responsibility.

+Lauren Weinstein I have a ROM on my Galaxy Nexus too and it runs like a champ. I did the same with my Nexus 5 but recently went back to stock just to enjoy the simplicity of not being able to configure everything. I don't mind slogging through the bulletin boards in order to learn how to keep these devices running but I'm guessing the majority of owners don't want to waste their time and will either end up throwing perfectly capable hardware away or running an unpatched OS.

Hey +Lauren Weinstein I think this is relevant to your interests, even though its a comic and not video:

If you’ve ever driven down the highway through a mountainous region, you’ve likely seen the long gravel runway-looking ramps extending off of the side of the road. These are not just for the government’s cooperation with an imminent alien invasion, but also to help truckers stop when all else fails.
