European museums may “loan” stolen artifacts back to African countries - Vox
- In the UK, the Victoria and Albert Museum in London is considering returning thousands of objects, including gold artifacts, to Ethiopia “on a long term loan.” The artifacts were taken from the country by the British army in the 1800s, the Post reports, and Ethiopia filed a claim for their return in 2007. The Benin Dialogue Group, a consortium of European museums, also has plans to loan a series of objects to Nigeria and Benin that were taken by the British army during an expedition in West Africa in the 1800s. Restitution, or permanently returning the artifacts, however, is not part of the current plan.

When You’re Hot, You’re Hot: Career Successes Come in Clusters
- HN: I wanted to dismiss this finding as some kind of reputation adder, whereby after a hit a professional's work would receive extra positive attention that might not have been warranted. However, but the authors appear to extend their result to artists such as Van Gogh, who was not, to my understanding, famous during his lifetime. According to the authors, he managed to produce his best works in a clustered manner while the feedback from these works presumably remained about constant.

Why many products struggle, and only a few succeed
Yup. - I’m convinced that this is why many so products struggle, and why only a few succeed. Too many people are pursuing old dry wells. To win, you’re going to have to go out and drill where folks haven’t dug before. Three ideas for identifying pent-up demand: Ask: “what groups is the mainstream ignoring?” When people feel underrepresented, they’re hungry for deliverance. Forget about what your competitors are doing. Instead, look at the desires of real users. What do they desire that’s not being offered? Try a different approach. Switch to a different target market. Buck the trend. Be unconventional. I like the way my friend Jeffrey Bunn summarizes this: Yes, find an untapped well! But this doesn’t mean you have to create an industry or crush the competition. That would be demoralizing. Instead, ask: “where is the untapped well in my current business? How can I zig while my competitors zag? How can I skate to where the puck is going; not where it is?” Even more simplified: “how can I think for myself?”

We killed the cigarette. What we got in return is mango-flavored nicotine in ‘party mode.’
<<Every generation discovers — or appropriates — a vice and polishes it to the appropriate social sheen. Juuling upstaged smoking, and on it goes, the generations grasping for signifiers and identities separate from the adults. ... Juuling, health professionals say, also carries the dangers of the death stick of the past. It is raising alarms by hooking youth on nicotine at a time when old-fashioned smoking has been hitting a steep decline.>>
