This Is Your Brain on Silence - Issue 16: Nothingness - Nautilus
As it turned out, even though all the sounds had short-term neurological effects, not one of them had a lasting impact. Yet to her great surprise, Kirste found that two hours of silence per day prompted cell development in the hippocampus, the brain region related to the formation of memory, involving the senses. This was deeply puzzling: The total absence of input was having a more pronounced effect than any sort of input tested.

China vows serious punishment for IPR breaches - Global Times
he National Development and Reform Commission (NDRC), the country's top economic planner, along with 37 other government agencies, on Tuesday issued a joint memorandum on penalties for serious breaches of intellectual property rights (IPR).

The release of the memorandum, one of the most detailed documents on IPR protection issued by China, signals a further step by China to strengthen IPR protection and shows China's sincerity in addressing US' concern over the issue.

The penalties include restricting capital support from the government, tightening examination of government fund applications or reducing the scale of support, as well as limiting subsidies and social security funds to companies that have breached IPR, according to a statement on the NDRC website.

Serious breaches include repeated infringement of patents or applying for patents in an "improper" way. Other outlawed practices include providing false documents and patent attorneys registering certificates in patent agencies in exchange for dividends without actually doing the work.

The memorandum also assigned specific tasks to different government agencies. For example, the People's Bank of China, the central bank, has been told to include bad IPR-related records of entities to its financial database and online credit system. The memorandum also set a short deadline for the implementation of the joint crackdown efforts.

Comment: Sounds like for the responsible legal persons and managers of corporate entities, not individuals, could be big if fully implemented. Will the penalties also apply to platforms like those run by Alibaba and JD that have continuing issues with sales of counterfeit goods? Could be useful as part of the US-China trade discussions but this is not a direct reaction to pressure from the US.

Interrupting Capitalism: Catholic Social Thought and the Economy - Oxford Scholarship
Interrupting Capitalism: Catholic Social Thought and the Economy
Matthew A. Shadle
ABSTRACT
Interrupting Capitalism: Catholic Social Thought and the Economy traces the history of Catholic thinking about economic life from the Second World War to the present, from the perspective of a “theology of interruption.” God interrupts history through the Incarnation and the continued mission of the church, but in an increasingly pluralist society, Christians must learn to see God’s presence in the religious other and in the poor and vulnerable, as well. Faithful to God’s call, the church’s social teaching provides a way for Christians to interrupt capitalism, to live out economic life faithfully in the midst of the global economy. The book traces official Catholic social teaching on the economy from the Second Vatican Council to Pope Francis, but also looks at four important voices in recent Catholic theological reflection on economic life: liberation theology, progressive Catholicism, neoconservative Catholicism, and communitarianism. Of the four, the communitarian perspective appeals to those aspects of the church’s social tradition that are most vital to living out the Christian vocation in contemporary American economic life. The book also turns to critical realism and institutional economics—two perspectives from the social sciences that can help the Catholic social tradition understand the global economy, including the relationship between local practices and broader social structures and institutions.

How to View All Events as a List in Your Mac's Calendar App - MacRumors
Some third-party calendar apps (Fantastical, for example) allow you to view all your upcoming events as a vertical list. Many users find this sort of viewing mode beats staring at the regular calendar interface, since it provides a quick at-a-glance summary of their entire schedule over the coming days and months. On the face of it, Apple's Calendar for macOS lacks an equivalent feature. However, there is one way to force a list view that includes all your events, which we've detailed below.
