This is a profoundly moving editorial from the Jordan Times about the parallels - and the differences - between the Arab Spring and what is happening in the US. "American citizens experienced in one week what several hundred million Arab men and women have been experiencing for the past half a century or so: power structures that are controlled by a small number of men, revolving around a single family, closely tied to corporate business interests, and taking decisions unilaterally with little interaction with or respect for the elected legislative branch of government, expertise in the scholarly and civil society worlds or the domestic and international rule of law."

For years now I have been flagging pages like this in Google Alerts, which come up with my name in them. There is a "flag as irrelevant" link in the email alerts, but they have no effect. Any insight here +Bradley Horowitz ? It has been about 2 or 3 years now that I have been dutifully flagging them, to no avail.

#AeroFarms consumes less than 95% of the water used by traditional soil-based agriculture. We use less than 3% of the land required by conventional growing. Our location in urban environments repurposing empty warehouses, reduces harmful transportation emissions by 98% on average while creating new jobs and helping boost local economies. In addition, our sustainable farming approach grows.

"When I was a kid, my reading included comic books and Rand’s The Fountainhead and Atlas Shrugged. There wasn’t much difference between the comic books and Rand’s novels in terms of the simplicity of the heroes. What was different was that unlike Superman or Batman, Rand made selfishness heroic, and she made caring about others weakness."

". The most recent in-depth study found that, in 1999, only 115 children nationwide were victims of a “stereotypical kidnapping” by a stranger; the overwhelming majority were abducted by a family member. That same year, 2,931 children under 15 died as passengers in car accidents. Driving children around is statistically more dangerous than letting them roam freely."

What a great read!  @neilhimself explains why our future depends on libraries, reading and daydreaming. I love the bit about China! And I am horrified by the bit about prisons.
