+Erik Monti before the election you were asking what would happen if the Republicans won control of the Senate, I said probably not much given the blocking power of the minority and the veto.
Democratic control would have been a better result substantively, but Republican control of both houses has political benefits for Democrats. The Republican base feels betrayed by their powerless leaders, cross-pressured voters (college educated white women who shifted Republican in 2014) are put off by the Republican focus on abortion, and the press has clearer story of a flailing Republican congress versus an active Democratic president. 
WASHINGTON (AP) — A month into their newfound control of both chambers of Congress, it wasn't supposed to be like this for Republicans. Instead of advancing a conservative agenda and showing voters they can govern, they are confronting the very real possibility of a shutdown of the Homeland Security Department later this month.

The new film and media center at Station North, +Tom Burke
On a recent Wednesday morning, a dapper fellow in a fedora and black overcoat pilots a wooden skiff towards the wharf at South Ann Street. He silences the puttering outboard and drifts toward a cleat in the walk across from Bonaparte Breads. After tying up the boat and ascending a ladder to the ...

An interesting, but slightly off, history of American parties. The Democratic party is at its core the people's party, the Republican party is the business party.
Building your liberal party around America's most conservative region never made sense.

Chait is parroting the libertarian's revisionist caricature of American parties, and falling into the trap of projecting current ideological divisions onto the past. All American coalitions are hostile to the concentration of power, they differ on what location is most dangerous to freedom, depending on circumstance.

Story arc in TV and movies. You might find the time and motion stuff particularly interesting, +Tom Burke . As a comment points out, the structures trace back to the greek classics. The division into twelfths echos the 24 books of Homer's Illiad. +Andi Burke 
It's interesting to look, as I did at my last post, at the plot structure of typical episodes of a TV show as derived through topic models. But while it may help in understanding individual TV shows, the method also shows some promise on a more ambitious goal: understanding the general ...

One more argument for a Chromebook, +Erik Monti 
Adobe Photoshop Streaming runs on a Google server instead of your PC. Remember Sun Microsystems' motto "the network is the computer"? CNET's Stephen Shankland takes a look.

"in-flight anomaly" Love those flight euphemisms, CFIT. Sorry about the test pilots.
Virgin Galactic is reporting its SpaceShipTwo suborbital rocket plane experienced an “in-flight anomaly” on a powered test flight over California's Mojave Desert on Friday. The anomaly apparently occurred after the space plane fired its rocket motor following a high-altitude drop from Virgin ...

Good food, cranky staff. Spent $40 on lunch, then the staff wanted to chase me out for using a computer at the back table.
