Physics World (MR). MR: “[D]on’t miss the penultimate paragraph.”
NYT. Just like HAMP!
Quartz. Handy spectrum of shill to scholar, with — speaking of public money — Elon Musk on the “Shill” side.
MoDo, Vanity Fair
(PDF) Brookings Papers on Economic Activity. From the abstract: “Compared to observed heterogeneity within member states themselves, or in well functioning federations such as the US, cultural diversity across EU members is a similar order of magnitude. The main stumbling block on the road to further political integration is not heterogeneity of tastes or of cultural traits, but other cleavages, such as parochial national identities.”

Pew Research Center
Nikkei Asian Review
South China Morning Post
The American Conservative. World War I.
New Cold War
WaPo. Read for the detail.

CBS. “Involved.” Because at this point I scan the qualifiers first, and then the story, I went to the lead: “Former National Security Director Gen. Keith Alexander told members of the Senate Select Committee on Intelligence in a Thursday afternoon hearing on Russian in the 2016 election cycle that he the country indeed .” Remember that , 52% of Democrats believed that it was definitely or probably true that “Russia tampered with vote tallies in order to get Donald Trump elected President,” and compare that to mushy words like “involved” and “interfered.”
NYT. From February, still useful, although it leaves out the financial incentives for Kos, the Times, etc.
Adam Johnson, FAIR. Like W and Dick Cheney, conservative MP Louise Mensch has been promoted to liberal icon.

Der Spiegel (and , originally in Chinese, linked to by Yves a couple days ago).
WaPo (MsExPat). Well worth a read (though the author doesn’t seem to see the ongoing crapification of the Mac).
Reuters. “Democrats in disarray” is a trope. So it’s refreshing to see it applied to Republicans…
Los Angeles Times
Scott Adams. Not really about the headline.
The New Republic. Now 80 co-sponsors.
Healthy California (MR). And the text of the bill ().
Health Affairs. Important:
Recent estimates suggest that , and the literature is full of accounts of communities living next door to one another with , reinforcing the understanding that it is the social and physical environment people are exposed to that most influences health…. The new panel’s report is not unaware of health care’s opportunity costs and how it . Investments, in housing, education, wages, safe environments, and communities have been shown to be cost efficient in addition to .
We’re seeing this play out right now as “deaths from despair” gets reframed to “the opioid crisis,” and medicalized (ka-ching).
2016 Post Mortem
CNBC. Sanders: “If the Democrats are going to be successful, in fact that party is going to have to appeal to a whole lot of Independents.” Let me revise this to reflect the DNC view: “If the Democrats are going to be successful, in fact that party is going to have to appeal to a whole lot of
Independentssuburban Republicans, especially women.”
The Intercept (MR). Workplace alienation as a motivation for leaking. I wonder what the DNC was like in the cubes?
Police State Watch
The Nation. Visualizing the flyover territories as colonies of the metropolis is a useful point of view.
The Marshall Project
WaPo. “Rural Americans turn to disability as jobs dry up.” “Dry up.” Like a natural phenomenon.
Tree Hugger (Re Silc).
Share Lab. From January, but a must-read.
