Bulletin of the Atomic Scientists (JTM). Humans are not nice and destroying the planet too, so it would be entirely rational to want to put an end to us.
The Verge. Translation: YouTube says it will be less aggressive about demonetization. We’ll see how many leftie sites get to run ads again.
BetaNews. Am I missing something? Doesn’t this mean you can use Tor to evade the paywall?

BBC. Notice this part:
Barcelona’s mayor Ada Colau condemned the move by Madrid, but also criticised Catalan pro-independence parties for “advancing at a kamikaze pace…after their mistaken reading of the results of the Catalan elections”
Bloomberg. Take with a fistful of salt. However, independence has never polled as a majority position in Catalonia. And I have not seen any post-referendum polls, so it’s not clear if the pre-existing split has changed. However, an aggressive intervention by Rajoy could turn more Catalans against Madrid.

CNN. I’m told sealed indictments, at least at the Federal level, are very unusual. Lawyers, please pipe up.

Axios. No one who counts will comply. I wouldn’t even bet on the research staff at the Fed, since they’ve done some meaningful work on this topic. In fact, one could go further and treat any reporter who did comply with this request as having proven that they are captured.
Economic Policy Institute
Bloomberg. You can be sure these are not fully autonomous. The failure to do adequate reporting is annoying.
Antidote du jour. Jamie J: “Our grape vine eating varmint that is way too cute to (hmm…) dispose of. Local possum, very territorial.”
