Avoiding Collisions in Outer Space - Yousaf Butt -The New York Times Mar 2019
"How much distance should separate these various constellations so that any collision in one doesn’t create havoc for those in higher or lower orbits? Currently, orbital slots in low Earth orbit are not assigned — you launch to wherever you like — but this laissez-faire attitude may soon need revisiting."

"If regulatory streamlining doesn’t happen soon, there’s a real danger that space start-ups may get fed up and decide to base their headquarters overseas."

"This concern underscores the importance of an international agreement on norms or a code of conduct. For instance, Gen. John Hyten, commander of the United States Strategic Command, has called for “international norms of behavior in space.” Norms can serve to highlight aggressive or abnormal behavior by adversaries and would be militarily useful."

Review: ‘The Alienist’ Is a Period Piece That Missed Its Moment - The New York Times
“The Alienist” is a period piece. You’ll gather that pretty quickly from the gas lamps, the cobblestone streets and the still-under-construction Williamsburg Bridge. But the period I’m referring to for the moment is 1994.
That’s when Caleb Carr published his novel, the film rights to it already sold, thus beginning the long journey to the screen of Dr. Laszlo Kreizler, a serial killer hunter in Gilded Age Manhattan. Scripts were attempted and discarded. This Monday, after a quarter-century, it arrives as a 10-episode mini-series on TNT.

Pope Francis Is Beloved. His Papacy Might Be a Disaster.
To be a critic of such a pope, then, is to occupy something like the position of George Orwell, who opened an essay on Mohandas Gandhi with the aphorism, “Saints should always be judged guilty until they are proved innocent.” Except that the pope’s most serious critics are not skeptics like Orwell who don’t actually believe in saints: They are faithful Catholics, for whom criticism of a pontiff is somewhat like the criticism of a father by his son. Which means they — we — are always at risk of finding in the mirror the self-righteous elder brother in Jesus’ parable of the prodigal son, who resents his father’s liberality, the welcome given to the younger brother coming home at last.

Extensive Data Shows Punishing Reach of Racism for Black Boys - The New York Times
--The original Chetty et al paper and their executive summary of the projects mention no racism or sexism. The NYTimes article contains copious amounts of morally colored terms and narratives that does disservice to the solid work it claims to popularize. Both the original article and the summary contain mention *causal effects* exactly once while this article runs wild with causal claims. Avoid reading the article but don't be surprised if you encounter a _human centipede_ version of the original work in your inbox, your social media, at home and everywhere else.

I recommend the executive summary

Rich White Boys Stay Rich. Black Boys Don’t. - The New York Times
Black boys raised in America, even in the wealthiest families and living in some of the most well-to-do neighborhoods, still earn less in adulthood than white boys with similar backgrounds, according to a sweeping new study that traced the lives of millions of children.

White boys who grow up rich are likely to remain that way. Black boys raised at the top, however, are more likely to become poor than to stay wealthy in their own adult households.
