Ignore the noise about efficiency, etc. Here is why this is genius: "the higher usage of neem-coated urea would check diversion of urea for industrial use. Urea is excessive used as it is highly subsidised and its retail price of urea is fixed at Rs. 5,360 per tonne."

In the category of seriously, wtf?, we have a new development in the case of some Orange County cops who raided a medical marijuana dispensary, and in the process were caught on video doing some rather shady things, such as eating the pot brownies. Thanks to this video, the business is suing the cops, and the cops in question are looking at being demoted or sacked.*

But now, the cops in question are moving to have the video suppressed under California wiretapping laws. You see, under California laws, both parties need to consent to any recording for it to be legal. And while the cops knew there was a surveillance system in the business – not only was it posted, but they're legally required to have one – they are claiming that they had a legal expectation of privacy, because they thought they had smashed it.

This has got to be one of the most bizarre legal motions I've seen in a while.* I wonder if they've seriously thought through the consequences of such a decision? "I shot out the cameras, so I had a legal expectation of privacy while robbing the bank!"

* Eating a pot brownie is a serious business, you see; this isn't a minor thing like shooting a black teenager.**

** Oops. Did I say that out loud?

* I really wish I could say "ever."
As you can probably guess, they didn't get all of them. When it's ok for a masked man to steal your TV About a week ago (ars technica, Orange County Register), some of the officers who raided a medical-marijuana shop...

I just learnt about the Indigo riots of Bengal that occurred in 1859. Our country has been raped in unfathomable ways.

Two reddit threads I suddenly remembered out of the blue

1. The US constitution -- understanding something so fundamental as, "Who is meant to read this?" (answer: the government, not the people) can resolve so many never-ending "debates" https://www.reddit.com/r/AskHistory/comments/18zm9q/why_do_we_still_revere_the_constitution_so_highly/c8jlp0z

2. Blowing up the moon -- how would a US state legislature do it? 

https://np.reddit.com/r/AdviceAnimals/comments/2y0tq8/i_work_for_the_tx_senate_and_can_tell_you_100/cp5aie3

Another curious thing.. I distinctly remember reading both the day they were posted. In my mind, it felt like they were "a long time ago", maybe a couple years if I had to guess. It turns out that the first one was indeed 2.5 years ago, while the second one was just this February! It's almost like there is no time resolution in my memory at all..

Absolutely outstanding article! One of their very best!!
When we meet new people, we’re tempted to ask: 'what do you do?' We’re picking up on the idea that our identity is very linked to our daily tasks. But the way the question is answered tends to lock on to the practical externals of our jobs. So a dental hygienist will explain how they k

This is a very wide-reaching line of thinking. Let's look inward: most of what we do is because of our innate motivations (desire for stability, fame, respect, love, ... ). If something within changes, either physiologically (a mild, undetectable stroke) or outside (you've got the fame you were looking for, and it's not what you thought it'd be), whole swathes of skills, memories and connections suddenly become irrelevant and die out.
Evolution is one of the biggest ideas in the modern world. It was most memorably formulated by Charles Darwin in the 19th century. Part of the theory focuses on the tendency of genes to mutate. When a frog – or microbe or giraffe – has a gene mutation, it usually that means they’ll be unsuite

And extending the article more naturally, it's not just jocks vs nerds: even finer traits, like kinds of humor, who we respect, "fear of god" etc. are all socially selected

It'd been years since I'd taken an eye exam, and needed one per my company's policy. I had a *fantastic* experience at Westside. +Dr. Thao Nguyen is exceptional, and her staff are thorough professionals. I didn't have vision insurance, but their pricing was very reasonable. Heartily recommended!
