In Masters of Craft: Old Jobs in the New Urban Economy, Richard E. Ocejo explores four traditionally working-class jobs – barbering, bartending, distilling and butchery – that have been increasingly redefined as hip, high-status and ‘middle-class’ for a number of urban workers today. via Pocket

Although Cambridge Analytica (CA) is preparing to shut down, US Congress isn't done trying to get answers about the firm's tactics to harvest online user data for political research. Today, in the latest chapter of a matter that has affected up to 87 million Facebook users, the Senate Judiciary Committee is holding another hearing, titled "Cambridge Analytica and the Future of Data Privacy." One of the people testifying before the panel of senators is none other than whistleblower Christopher Wylie, the former director of research at CA who helped break the story earlier this year.

"Cambridge Analytica is the canary in the coal mine to a new Cold War emerging online," he said. "We must address the digital echo chambers that are being exploited to algorithmically segregate American society. Online communities should unite us, not divide us." During his testimony, Wiley also told Senator Cornyn (R-TX) that after billionaire and GOP mega-donor Robert Mercer began investing "tens of millions" of dollars in CA, the only restriction the firm had was to not do any work for Democratic political candidates.

Revisiting Ruin: Paul Lisicky Interviews Barrie Jean Borich - Los Angeles Review of Books

Memory transfer between snails challenges view of how brain remembers
Ryan knows Glanzman and trusts his work. He said he believes the data in the new paper. But he doesn’t think the behavior of the snails, or the cells, proves that RNA is transferring memories. He said he doesn’t understand how RNA, which works on a time scale of minutes to hours, could be causing memory recall that is almost instantaneous, or how RNA could connect numerous parts of the brain, like the auditory and visual systems, that are involved in more complex memorie

Home Price Decline Accelerates in First-Tier Cities in April - Caixin Global
Of the 70 major cities tracked by the NBS, new home prices fell in seven cities from March to April. The number was unchanged from March. However, compared with April 2017, new home prices fell in 10 of the cities last month, up from nine in March. There were several areas of China where home prices rose despite government efforts to keep them in check. In Hainan, real estate prices have surged since the central government announced in April that the southern island province would be developed into a free trade port by 2035.
