Interesting stuff

  1. Read: Young Chinese are “lying flat” (taking it easy) and the CPC is NOT happy. This is how it begins.
  2. Listen: “The Catholic Church is a force for good in the world.” Listen to this 2009 debate in which Christopher Hitchens and Stephan Fry eviscerate the proponents.
  3. Read: The Trump Organization has been keeping double-books for years. This black and white case of tax fraud may blow up Trump’s entire world (good).
  4. Look: A photo essay on the heat wave that killed nearly 80 people (that we know of) near Portland.
  5. Read: How Can We Do a Better Job Raising Boys?
  6. Read: How the Church’s ban on cousin marriage spurred the individualism that put “the West” in advance of the world (centuries before the Industrial Revolution)
  7. Read: US hospitals are posting their prices online. A good first step towards ending subjective, unfair pricing chaos.
  8. Read: Academic fraud and corruption at Leiden (my home university)
  9. Read: There are better ways to stay cool than using air-conditioning
  10. Read: Climate chaos is complicating Chicago’s relations with Lake Michigan
