Pirate Bay's Iconic .SE Domain has Expired (Updated) - TorrentFreak
The Pirate Bay's iconic .SE domain name has expired and will be deactivated soon if no action is taken. This means that thepiratebay.se, which played a central part in the site's history, is no longer redirecting to the most current Pirate Bay domain.
When The Pirate Bay first came online during the summer of 2003, its main point of access was thepiratebay.org.
Since then the site has burnt through more than a dozen domains, trying to evade seizures or other legal threats.
For many years thepiratebay.se operated as the site’s main domain name. Earlier this year the site moved back to the good old .org again, and from the looks of it, TPB is ready to say farewell to the Swedish domain.
Thepiratebay.se expired last week and, if nothing happens, it will be de-activated tomorrow. This means that the site might lose control over a piece of its history.

An investigation of the unexpectedly high fertility of secular, native-born Jews in Israel: Population Studies: Vol 70, No 2
Secular, native-born Jews in Israel enjoy the socio-economic status of many affluent populations living in other democratic countries, but have above-replacement period and cohort fertility. This study revealed a constellation of interrelated factors which together characterize the socio-economic, cultural, and political environment of this fertility behaviour and set it apart from that of other advanced societies. The factors are: a combination of state and family support for childbearing; a dual emphasis on the social importance of women's employment and fertility; policies that support working mothers within a conservative welfare regime; a family system in which parents provide significant financial and caregiving aid to their adult children; relatively egalitarian gender-role attitudes and household behaviour; the continuing importance of familist ideology and of marriage as a social institution; the role of Jewish nationalism and collective behaviour in a religious society characterized by ethno-national conflict; and a discourse which defines women as the biological reproducers of the nation.

Spotify Threatened Researchers Who Revealed 'Pirate' History - TorrentFreak
A team set to publish a book on the untold history of Spotify were threatened by the company, one of its researchers has revealed. Earlier this year, Rasmus Fleischer, who was also one of the early figures at The Pirate Bay, said that Spotify used 'pirate' MP3s to launch its beta. Soon after, the researchers were contacted by a lawyer, with strong suggestions to stop what they're doing.
As one of the members of Sweden’s infamous Piratbyrån (Piracy Bureau), Rasmus Fleischer was also one of early key figures at The Pirate Bay. Over the years he’s been a writer, researcher, debater, and musician, and in 2012 he finished his PhD thesis on “music’s political economy.”

Study: Anti-piracy efforts halve pirate ad revenue |
A new study, Measuring Digital Advertising Revenue to Infringing Sites, from The Trustworthy Accountability Group (TAG) – an advertising industry initiative to fight criminal activity in the digital advertising supply chain – has found that anti-piracy steps taken by the digital advertising industry have reduced ad revenue for pirate sites by between 48 and 61 per cent, notable progress against the $2.4 billion (€2.05bn) problem of infringing content, showing the impact of industry efforts to reduce ad-supported content piracy.

Star Trek: Discovery is getting pirated a lot | Ars Technica
The first two episodes of Discovery are both among the 20 most pirated TV shows.
Almost 10 million people tuned in to CBS on Sunday to watch the premiere of Star Trek: Discovery. And the premiere also drove record signups for CBS' proprietary streaming service, which will be the exclusive source for later episodes of the new Star Trek series.
But others have turned to good old-fashioned Internet piracy to get their Star Trek fix.
The premiere of Star Trek: Discovery is the twelfth most actively pirated show among users of the Pirate Bay right now, according to the Pirate Bay's list of most downloaded videos. Discovery's second episode isn't far behind, at number 19.
The list is dominated by episodes of Game of Thrones, which has been the Internet's most pirated show several years in a row, along with Rick and Morty.
While the premiere of Discovery was broadcast on CBS' free over-the-air network, later episodes in the first season will be offered exclusively on CBS' streaming video service. CBS hopes this will help the network build CBS All Access into a top-tier streaming service. But there's a risk that it will simply encourage more people to pirate CBS' flagship show—especially since some users who signed up for the service have been reporting reliability problems on social media.
Star Trek has long been popular among the file-sharing crowd. The 2009 Star Trek movie was that year's most pirated movie.

Why are children in the same family so different from one another? - PubMed - NCBI
- Plomin et al

The article has three goals: (1) To describe quantitative genetic methods and research that lead to the conclusion that nonshared environment is responsible for most environmental variation relevant to psychological development, (2) to discuss specific nonshared environmental influences that have been studied to date, and (3) to consider relationships between nonshared environmental influences and behavioral differences between children in the same family. The reason for presenting this article in BBS is to draw attention to the far-reaching implications of finding that psychologically relevant environmental influences make children in a family different from, not similar to, one another.

Individualistic values, institutional trust, and interventionist attitudes | Journal of Institutional Economics | Cambridge Core
A popular explanation for economic development is that ‘individualistic values’ provide a mind-set that is favorable to the creation of growth-promoting institutions. The present paper investigates the relationship between individualistic values and personal attitudes toward government intervention. We consider two key components of an individualistic culture to be particularly relevant for attitude formation: self-direction (‘social’ individualism) and self-determination (‘economic’ individualism). Results indicate that both are negatively associated with interventionist attitudes. Effects of self-direction are much weaker though, than self-determination. Moreover, the effects of self-direction are mitigated through higher trust in the state and lower confidence in companies, while that is not the case for self-determination values. We conclude that especially economic individualism supports attitudes conducive to the formation of formal market-friendly institutions.

“Never argue with a fool, onlookers may not be able to tell the difference.” ~ Mark Twain

'Never argue with an idiot. They will only bring you down to their level and beat you with experience.' ~ George Carlin

Cynical Old Fart jonah g • a day ago
Great quote, although I chose Twain's because I thought it more apt on this occasion.
Secondly, there is dissension as to the attribution of your quote as to whether it was Twain or Carlin. There is no evidence to support either. When I use it, I attribute it to "Unknown".
The quote is likely to originate from Proverbs 26:4 which states:
"When arguing with fools, don't answer their foolish arguments, or you will become as foolish as they are."
