It's preliminary research being reported in the media, so take it with a grain of salt.

But on the face of it, it seems commonsense: inflation isn't an interest rate, it's the measurement of a trendline of a bunch of data points. So if you subdivide those data points in different ways - household income, household size, race, state, etc. - you should find different interest rates for different groups.

Mark this one up as "data porn" and look forwards to seeing the results of the research later.
 
A study that comes as a surprise only to people who aren't poor. :( (via private share)

After being sent fanart from a four-year-old fan, Blizzard artists reinterpreted the character in the game's style.

Sometimes the world is an okay place.

"It's not natural for men to say that they're women and be allowed in the women's bathroom."

You know what isn't natural? Bathrooms.

... there is a certain hip-hop loving librarian looking for work that I think needs to be aware of this posting.
 
Okay, I can't even begin to do this job, but THIS IS AWESOME.
Talk about two things I never expected to see together. Cornell University...and hip hop.

And now, we go to Oklahoma, where the #PottyPolice want to be able to empower the Attorney General to declare states of emergency and take over the administration of any school that allows trans kids to use a restroom.
The declaration that transgender students using bathrooms has caused a public health emergency.

+Zannah L Oh. My. Goddess. Can we just get rid of Oklahoma? We could use it to our advantage! Move out the thirty or forty smart people, then move in all of the idiots who are listening to them, and just attach the whole state to a rocket and drop it off in the ocean. Their own empty heads will keep it afloat!

After +Sarah Perry-Shipp posted about a vertical farming startup, I tried to find an independent source to confirm and found this: A company that fuses a tilapia farm with a green farm so that the 'fertilizer' they need is produced on-site AND results in tasty fish. One of their crops includes radishes. So now animal protein AND root vegetables are being manufactured in a vertical farm.

It's "organic", Jim, but not as we know it.

Doesn't have to be organic to make logical use of animal waste. It is in fact a waste of money for farmers to dispose of animal waste without applying it to their fields in the way that makes best use of the plant nutrients in manure.

Use of physical isolation combined with proper and enforced protocol for entering/leaving can be quite effective pest control. Different physical layouts for food production have advantages and drawbacks.

How does this setup compare in total energy consumption, to standard outdoor production of products sold?

And just one hour after I posted the last story, I read a story about a member of the Texas GOP calling for the stoning of transgendered children.

It was one thing that the murder rate went up this year, why it also become a cause celebre?

This is a very nice housing development, but I still think anyone who calls themselves "Paragon City" ought to have a statue of a man struggling to hold up the weight of the world as the centerpiece.
