Interesting stuff

  1. The rise of Chinese translation (and listening) AI
  2. Perfume
  3. Poorer countries are experiencing a debt crisis that will break records
  4. Gen Z is getting screwed (again) by coronavirus
  5. The Netherlands is setting sunshine records due to climate change and coronavirus (fall in pollution). That’s great for suntans but terrible for farmers 🙁
  6. Quantified: Social science insularity  (poor anthropology!)
  7. Stop the spread by banning large events. Save yourself by remembering the value of touch. Counting deaths by cause is hard.
  8. A tourist’s guide to Rome in the first century AD
  9. How Not to Write About Africa
  10. A photo-journalist friend drive 6,000 miles and talked to many (real, working) Americans about how corona-related policies and behaviors affect them. A quick but insightful read.
