Favorite tweet:

Our reporting that POTUS has been trashing Porter is accurate. Doesn’t change fact that he won’t do so publicly so shouldn’t be viewed in any way as exonerating. https://t.co/PgDSxmJv5I

Wealth, Slave Ownership, and Fighting for the Confederacy: An Empirical Study of the American Civil War
How did personal wealth affect the likelihood southerners fought for the Confederate Army in the American Civil War? We offer competing accounts for how we should expect individual wealth, in the form of land, and atrociously, in slaves, to affect white men’s decisions to join the Confederate Army. We assemble a dataset on roughly 3.9 million white citizens in Confederate states, and we show that slaveowners were more likely to fight in the Confederate Army than non-slaveowners. To see if these links are causal, we exploit a randomized land lottery in 19th-century Georgia. Households of lottery winners owned more slaves in 1850 and were more likely to have sons who fought in the Confederate Army than were households who did not win the lottery. Our results suggest that for wealthy southerners, the stakes associated with the conflict’s threat to end the institution of slavery overrode the incentives to free-ride and to avoid paying the costs of war

-- very, very counterintuitive to my worldview. Interesting if these results hold up in other conflicts. Anybody studying demographics of East India Company or the subsequent British Army?

This is literally the “Black Mirror” robot dog http://ift.tt/2G8AH8B Prospective http://ift.tt/2Elrp8K February 13, 2018 at 12:07AM

If you’ve watched the Black Mirror episode “Metalhead”—in which the Big Bad is a gun-toting, knife-wielding robot dog—a new trick picked up by Boston Dynamics’s four-legged robot should terrify you:

Boston Dynamics has dubbed this robot the “SpotMini,” a chipper misnomer if I’ve ever heard one. What might the SpotMini grab next? I’m imagining a knife, like so:

Don’t be misled by the school-bus-yellow paint job. Soon, like Black Mirror‘s killer robot, the SpotMini may be hacking your garage door.
