When quarterbacks get a pass on rape, isn't it time to rethink the importance of college sports?
A young woman is raped after a night drinking at a bar, tearfully reports it to the police the next day, and then this happens. The police did not follow the obvious leads that would have quickly i...

The NYT article does sound pretty awful, but the way the blog phrases it makes it sound like the case has already been decided ("Apparently, part of the recruiting package at Florida State is rape privileges"), which is incorrect -- either we must get the justice system to look at the case seriously, or it is too late to know what actually happened.

This is how you stop global warming dead cold in its tracks. The Ontario way.

Thanks Andrew, don't worry though. The issue raises such high temperatures in people (hehe) that it happens quite a lot, as I'm sure you know. Tis OK.

Glad to see Nogizaka 46 gain recognition, though I'm not sure this cross-breeding trend is a good one in the long run.

Nogizaka 46 does a lot of tie-in cross-promotional work with the Tohoku Rakuten Eagles, which is how I follow them. It's for work, I swear.

+Bunny Evans You may find focus fusion very interesting. In this form of fusion power generation, there is no nonsense conversion to heat, to kinetic energy, etc. Just directly captured nuclei to electricity. A box with terminals, as it were (though a very fancy box).

Whether it will become viable will be more clear in about one year. They have made excellent progress so far, vastly more hopeful than any of the huge overspent projects like ITER.

Another case study of why you need to dig beyond the headlines and even beyond the news story to find out the truth.

To all those good people I promised to meet up with when work slowed down, as it always does in April, I'm still waiting for it to slow down.

Kevin Drum at his finest. The big reason taxes are complicated is because people do complicated things with their money—often with the express aim of lowering their taxes.
He owes us. It's time to stop whining.

+Chris Jones, AMT is lower than normal tax rates, so no. If you counted up all your income and claimed no deductions aside from personal and standard, you would pay more than any constellation of incomes would pay under AMT.

This is a better story than the one in the NY Times, which never even uses the word "nuclear" once.
The world needs to triple the energy it gets from renewables, nuclear reactors and power plants that use emissions-capture technology to avoid dangerous levels of global warming, United Nations scientists said.

But the best examples of Japanese Americana don’t just replicate our culture. They strike out, on their own, into levels of appreciation and refinement rarely found in America. They give us an opportunity to consider our culture as refracted through a foreign and clarifying prism. h/t +Gen Kanai 
If you’re looking for some of America’s best bourbon, denim and burgers, go to Japan, where designers are re-engineering our culture in loving detail
