Oh, the Humanities!
Ross Douthat, in the NY Times: "[A] hopeful road map to humanism’s recovery might include variations on those older themes. First, a return of serious academic interest in the possible (I would say likely) truth of religious claims. Second, a regained sense of history as a repository of wisdom and example rather than just a litany of crimes and wrongthink. Finally, a cultural recoil from the tyranny of the digital and the virtual and the Very Online, today’s version of the technocratic, technological, potentially totalitarian Machine that Jacobs’s Christian humanists opposed."

Aristotle’s Wrongful Death
Frank Bruni, in the NY Times: "Part of the skepticism toward traditional majors reflects a correct feeling that at some schools, some fields of study and course offerings are preserved largely because the faculty have a selfish investment in the status quo. If seats in the classroom are perpetually empty and money is sorely needed elsewhere, colleges shouldn’t ignore that. But it’s a balancing act, because colleges shouldn’t lose sight of what makes traditional majors — even the arcane ones — so meaningful, especially now."

Women earn most STEM degrees — Joanne Jacobs
Women earn more bachelor’s and graduate degrees in science, technology, engineering and math — if biology, health care and medicine counts as science. And surely it should.

Since the economic crisis of 2008, the pattern of undergraduate majors has been shifting across American higher education. Of all the major disciplines, history has seen the steepest declines in the number of bachelor’s degrees awarded.

Spotify Premium users will get some albums two weeks before free users - The Verge
Spotify has agreed to a new licensing agreement with Universal Music Group, the companies announced today. As part of the deal, Spotify has agreed to allow new albums from Universal artists to be restricted to its premium service for up to two weeks moving forward, confirming our report from last month. Spotify will also pay slightly less to UMG in royalty fees, according to sources close to the situation.

In a statement, Spotify CEO Daniel Ek admitted that Spotify understands that its policy of releasing albums across its entire service couldn’t last forever. “We know that not every album by every artist should be released the same way, and we’ve worked hard with UMG to develop a new, flexible release policy,” Ek stated. “Starting today, Universal artists can choose to release new albums on premium only for two weeks, offering subscribers an earlier chance to explore the complete creative work, while the singles are available across Spotify for all our listeners to enjoy.”

Gregory Wolniak on Maximizing Post-Graduation Earnings - The Atlantic
Wolniak: Majors are the single biggest driver of earnings. Deciding your major plays a bigger role in determining your career earnings than does where you go to school or even deciding whether or not to attend at all. In other words, the average between attending and not attending is less than the differences we see among bachelor’s completers once we compare earnings across fields.

Ten Points on the Wrong Side of History, Bryan Caplan | EconLog | Library of Economics and Liberty
5. When I actually look at historians' Big Pictures, they're even worse than their liberal bias suggests.  Economic illiteracy is rampant.  Social Desirability Bias rules the day.  And moral relativism reigns supreme.

Les majors du disque attaquent YouTube-MP3 [et non YouTube] en justice
Après avoir dénoncé au début du mois les méfaits du « stream ripping », l’industrie musicale passe à l’offensive. YouTube-MP3, considéré comme un leader mondial dans ce domaine, vient d’être attaqué en justice aux États-Unis par les principales majors du disque.

Avec ses 60 millions de visiteurs uniques par mois, le site administré par Philip Matesanz est accusé d’avoir engrangé ces dernières années plusieurs « millions de dollars » de revenus publicitaires. Le tout sans verser un centime aux ayants droit, qui l’ont assigné hier devant un tribunal californien pour de multiples atteintes à leur copyright ainsi que pour détournement de mesures techniques de protection.

Et pour cause. YouTube-MP3 permet de télécharger le son d’une vidéo YouTube (musique d’un clip par exemple), simplement en fournissant son adresse URL. Il s’agit en ce sens d’un convertisseur gratuit, qui ne nécessite pour l’utilisateur aucun logiciel.

Cela fait des années que cette plateforme de stream ripping se voit menacée de poursuites. Mais ce coup-ci, c’est une action coordonnée au niveau international par l’IFPI, la Fédération internationale de l’industrie phonographique, qui vient d’être lancée, avec l’appui de la RIAA aux États-Unis et de la BPI au Royaume-Uni. La procédure visant YouTube-MP3 et son administrateur, Philip Matesanz, est ainsi déposée au nom de grandes majors : Warner, Sony Music, Atlantic Records, etc.
