"Liberty, however, requires certain things. Liberalism demands acceptance of our human differences and the ability to mediate them through democratic institutions. It demands acceptance of multiple, perhaps incompatible truths. In an age of declamation and shouting, of polarization and vilification, of politics-for-sale and the insidious submersion of politics in fact-lite entertainment, the emergence of Trump is as uninspiring as it is menacing."

Light-powered 3-D printer creates terahertz lens - From visible light to radio waves, most people are familiar with the different sections of the electromagnetic spectrum. But one wavelength is often forgotten, little understood, and, until recently, rarely studied. It's called terahertz, and it has important applications in imaging and communications.

Crisis after crisis is being caused by a failed ideology. But it cannot be stopped without a coherent alternative.

An Iranian official said "Republican rivals of the current US administration" attempted to stall last month's Iranian-U.S. prisoner swap until the eve of the U.S. presidential election, Tasnim News Agency reported. According to the semi-official Iranian news outlet, Ali Shamkhani, the secretary of Iran’s Supreme National Security Council, made the claims during a speech Thursday at a rally in Yazd, Iran.

LibreOffice 5.1: The premier open-source office suite just keeps getting better

It’s a good day for fans of open-source software. The Document Foundation is releasing LibreOffice 5.1 for Windows, Linux, and Mac. On tap are reorganized menus, integrated support for remote servers like Microsoft SharePoint and Google Drive, improved compatibility with Microsoft Office documents, and too many smaller improvements to count.

The latest version of LibreOffice also features improved interoperability. As always, the developers have tweaked compatibility with Microsoft’s Office Open XML format, the default file format for modern versions of Microsoft Office. While Microsoft’s OOXML format is technically an ISO standard, no version of Microsoft Office—not even Office 2016—uses the “strict” version of the standard. Instead, Office still saves documents using a “transitional” version of OOXML by default. As the Document Foundation’s Italo Vignoli points out, this is a transition that’s been going on nine years. The Document Foundation says this standard tends to change with each new release of Microsoft Office, often in big ways, making it a challenge for LibreOffice to keep up.

There are also improvements for importing old Microsoft Office documents in binary formats—that means DOC, XLS, and PPT files. Improvements for importing RTF files and Microsoft Visio projects are also included.

LibreOffice supports new file types, too. It can now import Microsoft Write (.wri) documents and Apple Keynote 6 (.key) presentations. On Linux, LibreOffice can now import Gnumeric spreadsheet files.

Work on LibreOffice web and Android apps is ongoing, too. All that time spent improving the suite's underlying code has made it possible for LibreOffice to go beyond the desktop and onto other platforms. While the Document Foundation doesn’t have anything to announce just yet, it will be releasing more details about the web and mobile versions of LibreOffice in the coming months.
New features include streamlined menus and remote-server support.

Paul Krugman: The divergent nomination outcomes of 2016 aren’t an accident. The Democratic establishment has won because it has, however imperfectly, tried to serve its supporters. The Republican establishment has been routed because it has been playing a con game on its supporters all along, and they’ve finally had enough.

And yes, Mr. Trump is playing a con game of his own, and they’ll eventually figure that out, too. But it won’t happen right away, and in any case it won’t help the party establishment. Sad!
