I'll say it again. It's like we're living in a well written adult cartoon.

Using the non-standard is a pet peeve of mine.
 
I confess I tend to use the nonstandard version more often. It sounds a bit like devious. 
Our most recent poll asked our readers the following question: Which spelling would you have chosen? If you had gone with ‘mischievious’ you would have bee

Yeah, French and German are pronounced badly. We're fixing their errors.

“I’m not sure I can cope with the pressure to do $15 worth of work in an hour.”
The Los Angeles City Council has voted to raise the minimum wage to $15 per hour by 2020, making it the biggest city in the nation to do so in an effort to improve the lives of the poorest Americans. What do you think?

My child could be killed because I left him home. Or he could be killed because I brought him with me in the car. My child could be killed because I left him inside the car. Or he could be killed walking across the parking lot at my side. There is not a law that can guarantee that my child will be safe. It is unsettling, but true. And no one is better suited to make decisions for the safety of a child in a particular situation than his parent.
This article is the scariest thing I've read in a long time. A zombie apocalypse has nothing on "good" Samaritans hell-bent on protecting children from the reasoned decisions of their parents. “What a horrible mother:” How a...

Q: "Which do you have more of -- kids or red sneakers?"

"You know what's easier than applying sunscreen?  Not going outside."  That sounds identical to +Alex Scrivener 's philosophy.

A good read for identifying and managing information/task overload at work.

via +Aleatha Parker-Wood 
 
"""
Caused by brain overload, [attention deficit trait] is now epidemic in organizations. The core symptoms are distractibility, inner frenzy, and impatience. People with ADT have difficulty staying organized, setting priorities, and managing time. These symptoms can undermine the work of an otherwise gifted executive. If David, Jane, Mike, and the millions like them understood themselves in neurological terms, they could actively manage their lives instead of reacting to problems as they happen.

[...]

Unlike ADD, a neurological disorder that has a genetic component and can be aggravated by environmental and physical factors, ADT springs entirely from the environment. Like the traffic jam, ADT is an artifact of modern life. It is brought on by the demands on our time and attention that have exploded over the past two decades. As our minds fill with noise—feckless synaptic events signifying nothing—the brain gradually loses its capacity to attend fully and thoroughly to anything.
"""
Modern office life and an increasingly common condition called “attention deficit trait” are turning steady executives into frenzied underachievers.

Great news! Another state ends the barbaric practice of executing prisoners!
Even as repeal supporters exchanged handshakes and hugs in the legislative chamber, a key defender of capital punishment vowed to keep the broader debate alive. Sen. Beau McCoy of Omaha announced plans to pursue a petition drive to put reinstatement of the death penalty on the ballot.

Good advice on helping others with depression.  Considering how widespread a problem depression has become, I would probably recommend this article for everyone.

What is implicit in the items mentioned in the article, but not explicit, is basically this:  you can't fix it and if you want to help, you have to share to some degree in the depressed person's suffering.  The desire to avoid suffering and find quick fixes runs contrary to supporting mental health, and such a mindset exacerbates the suffering of many.  Sometimes, there are no easy answers.
Reach out to them unexpectedly. Remind them they don't have to do this alone.

you have to share to some degree in the depressed person's suffering That's what we should be doing rather than pursuing the obsession with happiness (which to most people means "never feeling an icky feeling, ever").

When we refuse to "feel icky", we mistreat people, seeing them as merely means to an end of our own entertainment.

"Hey you, you only exist in so far as you help me maintain my desired levels of dopamine and serotonin!"

And of course we press this burden on everyone else. "If you aren't giddy as a dolphin all the time there's something wrong with you!"

Christians are called to bear one another's burdens period. And frankly hanging out with a depressed person ain't as hard as working in a coal mine so we should get over our narcissism and learn to love each other a little more.

It was all nested string functions. I was asked to come up with formulas that would parse strings with multiple and varying numbers of carriage returns as well as various delimiters into separate cells. One of my interests was to spend as little time on on this as I could. The result wasn't very pretty, but it worked, and in the end I was able to stay under the formula character limit. :)

I realize that paying people subsidies to misuse water to grow unprofitable crops, and then offering them countersubsidies to not take your first set of subsidies, is to say the least a very creative way to spend government money – but the point is it is better than what we’re doing now

Also interesting, if the figures here are correct, meat production is one of the biggest culprits in California's water shortage, since the most water expensive crops go to feed cows.

+Ryan Ostendorf​ in addition to raising cattle correctly, I think cutting consumption would help quite a lot. As a culture, we are addicted to cheap food, particularly cheap meat and dairy.
