Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn Speech on Modernity: Zurich, 1974 | National Review
In a little-known 1974 speech, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn decries the materialism of modern society and calls for the establishment of a ‘worthy equilibrium’ between humanity’s material and spiritual concerns.
Editors’ note: In 1974, just a few months after being banished from the Soviet Union, Aleksandr Solzhenitsyn delivered an address in Zurich to the Italian Catholic Press Union. In its ambivalence toward modernity and its call for a renewal of spiritual and moral values, it prefigures his much better-known Harvard commencement address of four years later. The Zurich speech, translated by Solzhenitsyn’s son Stephan, appears here for the first time in English.

‘Rather Than Dipping a Drinking Glass Into the Ocean, They Say, Astronomers Have Dunked a Bathtub’

The Economist on a new paper addressing Fermi’s Paradox:

Dr Wright’s argument echoes that made by another astronomer, Jill Tarter, in 2010. Dr Tarter reckoned that decades of searching had amounted to the equivalent of dipping a drinking glass into Earth’s oceans at random to see if it contained a fish. Dr Wright and his colleagues built on Dr Tarter’s work to come up with a model that tries to estimate the amount of searching that alien-hunters have managed so far. They considered nine variables, including how distant any putative aliens are likely to be, the sensitivity of telescopes, how big a portion of the electromagnetic spectrum they are able to scan and the time spent doing so. Once the numbers had been crunched, the researchers reckoned humanity has done slightly better than Dr Tarter suggested. Rather than dipping a drinking glass into the ocean, they say, astronomers have dunked a bathtub. The upshot is that it is too early to assume no aliens exist. Fermi’s question is, for now at least, not a true paradox.

[Fantastic Four] Night Blooms by Traincat
“Shall we toast?" He didn’t wait for Reed to answer before he clinked their glasses together. “To new discoveries.”

It was the kind of toast Reed might have made himself, right after “to family.” Doom raised his glass in his direction and, still not quite sure what game it was they were playing now, Reed followed suit. Doom smiled.

“Very good,” he said, taking a sip of his wine. “Now tell me, Reed Richards – what brings you to this universe?”

“What else? New discoveries,” he said, parroting Doom’s toast.

***
Reed visits the Doom of Universe P-1837 again, and again, and again.

10 things more inequitable about the way we pay for transportation than congestion pricing: 1. Flat vehicle registration fees (fix: charge more for higher weight vehicles that do exponentially more road damage). 2. Not pricing roads, which slows buses (fix: price roads and provide bus-only lanes, use that money to fund better transit). 3. Storm sewer subsidy (city taxpayers currently subsidize suburbanites who drive in). 4. Insurance (urbanites and poor pay more than suburbanites based on "garag
