Rapid Arctic warming is expected to lead to the melting of permafrost, which will emit carbon dioxide and methane to the atmosphere.

Want to get paid for shampooing someone's hair? In California, you may need to have at least nine months of experience and pass a licensing test overseen by the state barbering and cosmetology board, whose members include salon professionals.

As a researcher with the Good Judgment Project https://goodjudgmentproject.com/ this is right up my alley.  I think there is room for improving prediction which can be used in planning, but I think you (and perhaps Perrow) are giving short shrift to decentralized approaches... the government's first priority should be aiming to avoid subsidizing risk-taking.  Because the government cannot politically precommit not to rescue people from their mistakes, they must instead force people to buy insurance.  The cost of the insurance will help deter people and companies from excessive the risk-taking.
There is a lot going on in America and the world today: climate change, increasing separation between the rich and the non-rich, entrenched poverty in cities, continuing effects of racism in American life, and a rising level ...

If you read the linked series of posts you'll find really thought-provoking stuff for people interested in climate-related policy:
"First, if we manage widespread U.S. adoption of solar it will be a pyrrhic victory unless it is also adopted by India, China, and the rest of the developing world. Second, the downward march of solar energy prices is the single most important factor for mitigating global warming."
John Whitehead has another reply my carbon tax post, and I want to provide one last reply. He argues that he is worried about the effectiveness of innovation grants: I'm not convinced that solar innovation grants would be more effective than a carbon tax for several (largely uniformed) reasons: how [...]

Help me find data on car accidents!  The key thing I want is number of accidents by day for recent years.  Any leads?

They artfully display the best beer selection in the area but don't offer many bargains.

As far as I can tell, Atlas serves up the best Chicago-brewed beer. I loved everything I tried: the Hyperion Double IPA, the Reaper's Breath Dark Beligian Wheat, the Andromena Milk Stout! The food looked excellent but I didn't try it. Disclosure: I kinda know one of the founders, but I wouldn't review if I wasn't enthusiastic. The ambiance is comfortably classy. Highly recommended.
