Pakistani farmers get tips via text | Voa News
The latest farm tools on the job in Pakistan are cell phones and satellites. A new UW program is using satellite data to estimate how much water a field needs, and then texting this information to farmers.

Improving Climate Change Acceptance Among U.S. Conservatives Through Value-Based Message TargetingScience Communication - Graham Dixon, Jay Hmielowski, Yanni Ma, 2017
Dixon et al June 2017: Although prior research has identified communication strategies for reducing climate change skepticism, recent research suggests such approaches can backfire. To explore this issue, we report on a preliminary study investigating two prominent messaging styles: consensus and targeted messages. While consensus messaging did not produce significant effects, targeted messages emphasizing free market solutions to climate change were effective at improving conservatives’ climate change acceptance. Furthermore, the inclusion of consensus information did not improve or diminish the effects of the targeted messages. These findings underscore the utility of targeted messaging in improving climate change acceptance among political conservatives.

Brooklyn’s Latest Craze: Making Your Own Electric Grid - POLITICO Magazine
Using the same technology that makes Bitcoin possible, neighbors are buying and selling renewable energy to each other...
Santiago explained that the company he worked for, Brooklyn-based LO3 Energy, was running a pilot program that would permit renewable energy users like Guerra to sell power directly to their neighbors. In effect, the neighbors would become their own small power grid in the middle of the most populous city in the country.

‘Boomer antifa’: White supremacists rip into paramilitary Oath Keepers for not being racist enough - The Washington Post
On the surface, the white supremacists of the burgeoning alt-right movement seem to have a lot in common with the Oath Keepers, the anti-government militia group made up of former military and law enforcement people from around the country. They share a deep contempt for the federal government.

About this site | The Special Collections Handbook
I created this site as an online extension of The Special Collections Handbook,  published by Facet Publishing in December 2011.  The book was well received by librarians, archivists and students worldwide, and as a result Facet commissioned me to write a Second Edition, published in December 2016.

The Handbook is a practical guide to help librarians and others new to caring for special collections, by which I mean all the exciting stuff in a library that needs extra care but that also appeals to wider audiences.

If Ferrari built an M3: The 2017 Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio | Ars Technica
This might be the best four-door performance car on sale right now.
It's fair to say that I'd been looking forward to getting behind the wheel of the Alfa Romeo Giulia Quadrifoglio for some time. The brand's new flagship sedan is a $72,000, 505hp (377kW) rear-wheel drive statement of intent, a car that says to rivals at BMW and Mercedes and Cadillac that the Italians are back. It first caught our attention at the 2015 Frankfurt Motor Show, then again in Los Angeles. Last year, the Giulia Quadrifoglio teased us some more in New York 2016 and then once again this year when we awarded it Best New Luxury Car. But a build-up like that can be risky. Cars don't always meet our expectations, and there's little worse than the feeling when you fail to gel with a car you've been looking forward to driving.
A man on a TV show once said something along the lines of "you can't consider yourself a true petrolhead until you've had an Alfa Romeo." At the time, I wasn't entirely sure what he was talking about. The Alfas that populated the roads during my early driving years in the 1990s were unremarkable and badly compromised. During the 2000s, they were pretty but almost exclusively front-driven. And the Giulietta rental car I crossed Europe in a few years back had the most amazingly uncomfortable driving seat I'd ever encountered.
Well, forget all that—if the new Giulia Quadrifoglio is anything to go by, the brand is back. I'll go one further: if Ferrari were going to build a rival to the BMW M3, it would be this car. The new Giulia Quadrifoglio is just wonderful.
