Alaska Dispatch News (MGL). Great video.
Guardian. :-( but not news if you have been paying attention. We all need to start eating way down on the food chain. The paleo fad, which encourages eating lots of meat, is counter to this sort of thing. BTW I am skeptical of paleo. I can see the emphasis on avoiding grains and refined foods. However, meat from farmed animals is fatty while if you’ve ever eaten game, it’s extremely lean.

Financial Times. Correlation is not causation….and this seems to rely largely on IQ, which to a fair degree measure acculturation.
Christian Science Monitor
Bleeping Computer (Chuck L). We posted on this but glad to see some outlets in the US take notice.
Daily Mash. Li: “It’s too bad slinging insults doesn’t bring in hard currency.”
This tweetstorm is awesome. For those late to the Brexit saga, it also helps explain why the EU is fed up with the UK:

Reuters. Lambert: “It certainly is odd we don’t have any adorable English-speaking six-year-olds with Blue Check accounts Tweeting on this. Not that I’m foily.”

Mondoweiss (nechaev). Ugly.
DW. This is almost dog bites man, but the slightly novel bit is that it’s a British study.

Gretchen Morgenson, New York Times. Think we neglected to link to her column…
Business Insider. And this does not appear to allow for the fact that private equity is a bigger % of global equities, and presumably also US equities, than in the past.
Consumerist. Important. Banks had put language in their agreements made it impossible for class actions to go forward. Needless to say, that’s a breeding ground for penny-ante but large scale frauds like the Wells Fargo fake accounts scam.
Christian Science Monitor. “Administering justice takes a back seat to the overarching goal of simply keeping defendants alive.”
Reuters. More detail on this story. EM: “’15 percent will be offered below market rates’ sounds pretty good until you check out what ‘market rates’ in Menlo Park are and what they’ve done since the worst of the GFC ended.”
VICE. Resilc: “Like my time at UNC, which Jessie Helms called the university of niggrahs and communists.”
