The real fix for gerrymandering is proportional representation
"Sometimes you can make this all work together, but oftentimes you can’t. Creating majority-minority districts to ensure racial representation can look a lot like 'packing' Democratic voters into lopsided seats. Aiming at fair fights sounds nice but will end up violating communities of interest. Aiming for partisan fairness will necessarily involve some odd squiggles, since neighborhood-level partisanship can be very disparate. So I asked this scholar: 'What about proportional representation?' She said that when she teaches redistricting law, she does proportional representation last because it solves all the problems and the point of the class is for the students to work through the different complexities and legal doctrines governing the American system. That seems smart as a pedagogical approach, but as an agenda for political reform, solving all the problems is a good idea."

The Problem With 'Containing' Donald Trump
"Thank you and congratulations to those officials struggling to protect American security, the Western alliance, and world peace against Donald Trump. But the constitutional order is becoming the casualty of these struggles. The Constitution provides a way to remedy an unfit presidency: the removal process under the 25th amendment. Regencies and palace coups are not constitutional. I dare say many readers would prefer a Mattis presidency to a Trump presidency. But to stealthily endow Secretary Mattis with the powers of the presidency as a work-around of Trump’s abuse of them? That’s a crisis, too, and one sinister for the future. What if Trump is succeeded by a Bernie Sanders-type whom the military and intelligence agencies distrust as much as they distrust Trump: Will they continue the habits they acquired in the Trump years?"

Gary Harris and the hazards of NBA restricted free agency
"If this was a bargain for Denver, the question becomes: Why did Harris do it instead of waiting for the opportunity to hunt for a bigger deal as a free agent next summer? Perhaps Harris couldn’t say no to generational wealth as it sat on the table in front of him. But the threat of restricted free agency also likely had a major role. While the NBA has sought to make restricted free agency slightly less onerous for chasing teams to make an offer, it’s still a bad bet. Teams have to convince players to sign offer sheets, often shaping those deals in obnoxious ways to convince the incumbent team not to match. Then their cap space is tied up for three days while the incumbent team makes a decision. For a team to make a second-tier star like Porter or Harris a big offer, the player has to be really good and the chasing team has to have little to lose."

We were having dinner. But I took my luggage with me. She kept offering to buy me dinner, this nudgy, but kind woman. I didn’t feel like explaining anything. She was a stranger. It was my personal life. These are not extraordinary circumstances, necessarily, although they are specific ones. You may not have to stand in front of an audience talking about a book you wrote, but you might have had to make a sales presentation to a regional office. You may not have a prying local escort, but you might have, say, a mother, or a friend, who doesn’t know when to drop it.

'If you’re trying to get experimental on a five-barrel system, and shit doesn’t work out, and you gotta dump it, it’s not the end of the world. If we brew 200 barrels of beer and it doesn’t work out, there’s two scenarios. One, it goes out, and it’s detrimental to the brand because I released a turd. Or, two, we have to eat a big sum of money because there was a lot of it, and it’s all going down the drain.' 'Traditional brewers always bag on gypsy brewers, but it’s hard in a different way,' adds Van Hall. 'Some guys still have a chip on their shoulders about Brian. I understood it once, but not anymore.

Premature Evaluation: Beck Colors
"Kanye West is wrong a lot, but he was right about this. Back in 2015, Beck took home an Album Of The Year Grammy for the thoroughly OK pastoral lifestyle-folk album Morning Phase, and Kanye pretended that he was going to storm the stage before laughing and waving it off. But after the show was over, West said that he really wasn’t kidding at all: 'Beck needs to respect artistry, and he should’ve given his award to Beyoncé.' It was nothing new to see the Grammys honoring a perfectly pleasant work over a moment-defining one, and lord knows Beck has made a lot of great music over the past few decades and deserves some sort of grand recognition. But follow-through matters. After Beyoncé lost the Album Of The Year Grammy for her self-titled album, she went on to make Lemonade, an even-more-devastating interrogation of race and gender and relationships and public image, which then went on to lose Album Of The Year to Adele. Beck, on the other hand, won Album Of The Year, and he went on to make some bullshit."

The case for preserving — and improving — brutalist architecture
"For any significant building in any style, the period between its 30th and 60th birthdays is awkward. By 30, it has been around too long to seem new or edgy. Its style has probably fallen out of fashion, and most likely it needs repairs. But it’s not yet old enough to be distinguished — to seem properly historical. What do you do with a building that is tired but not venerated? 'There’s this kind of weird valley in which people either love or hate the buildings. I definitely feel like brutalism is in exactly that zone,' says Kubo. He compares its predicament to that of Victorian architecture in the early 20th century, when that style was mocked. And it’s hard to imagine Washington without the Old Post Office or the National Building Museum — but both were once regarded with embarrassment, and the Old Post Office was nearly demolished in the 1970s."

Who Will Win This Year’s NBA Hipster Team Championship Belt?
"The Golden State Warriors tilted the balance of relevance dramatically toward the Western Conference and toward veterans. All roads lead to the Bay, and time is on their side.

Barring injury, catastrophic mismanagement, or some unforeseen combination of both, the Dubs could be the favorites to win the title for the next three to five years. For star-level players age 27 or above, that means your best shot at winning a championship might come from teaming up. Thus we have Chris Paul in Houston with James Harden; Paul George and Hoodie Melo in Oklahoma City with Russell Westbrook; half the Banana Boat in Cleveland; and Gordon Hayward alongside flat-earth-shitposter Kyrie Irving in Boston with Al Horford."

'Welcome to Fear City' – the inside story of New York's civil war, 40 years on
"New York’s fiscal crisis of the mid-1970s is surely one of the weirdest moments in the history of the city – indeed, of the United States. It was a time when the wholesale disintegration of the largest city in the most powerful nation on earth seemed entirely possible. A time when the American president, Gerald Ford – egged on by his young chief of staff, one Donald Rumsfeld – sought not to succour New York but to deliberately shame and humble it, and perhaps even replace it as the world’s leading financial centre. It’s difficult to convey just how precarious, and paranoid, life in New York felt around that time. Signs everywhere warned you to mind your valuables, and to keep neck chains or other jewellery tucked away while on the subway. You became alert to where anyone else might be in relation to you, augmented by quick looks over your shoulder that came to seem entirely natural."

Why President Trump ignites Gregg Popovich
"Those who've observed Popovich's management style closely reveal a professorial spirit who sees coaching as a craft that extends far beyond the court. As if he's constructing a syllabus, Popovich spends considerable time each summer and throughout the season mulling potential themes to present, connecting them not only to what's going on in the world, but finding the Spurs-specific thread. 'The conversations he brings to our team and his desire to get our team to think of more than themselves is well-thought-out,' longtime Spurs general manager R.C. Buford says. 'The way he teaches values and the way he understands respect -- it's just something you take in,' Mills says. To succeed, by this creed, an organization like the Spurs needs not just to tolerate diversity, but to elevate it. In Popovich's eyes, this makes the San Antonio Spurs a hallowed place and an entity to be protected. 'Pop represents the most multicultural team in the most multicultural league and it goes even deeper than that,' says Utah Jazz general manager Dennis Lindsey, a Spurs alum. 'It's a point of pride.'"

That allows the groups to spread their message using untrained operatives, who are significantly more difficult to interdict because they are compartmented, they have no incriminating evidence until just before their turn and burn attack, and they are civilians until the moment their car leaps over the curb to start plowing into pedestrians."

Three Ways to Address the NBA’s Pacers Problem
"Unfortunately, Indiana general manager Kevin Pritchard, who filled Bird’s position as the team’s chief decision-maker in April, has taken his new job a little too seriously. Trading George for Oladipo and Sabonis was a brilliant tanking move. But instead of signing any bum off the street with a jump shot to round out the roster, Pritchard brought in Darren Collison, Cory Joseph, and Bojan Bogdanovic, all of whom should help the Pacers win a handful of games this season that they otherwise wouldn’t have. In other words, although the Pacers are blowing an obvious chance to acquire the potential superstar they’ve never had, the good news is that the team’s streak of consecutive 30-win seasons might stay alive!

"An offense could hardly be in better hands.

He seems to know just when a teammate needs a touch and just when an opponent is starting to lose focus. His is a mind at work. There’s always some calculation running in the background with Paul, and the result is an attack run alarmingly close to technical perfection. Thinking the game like Paul does opens it up to angles of attack most players are blind to."

Interview: Apple’s Craig Federighi answers some burning questions about Face ID
"Apple’s Face ID processes mirror very closely those they developed for Touch ID.

But so far, the answers seem fairly plain."

Same but Different
"The workers scurried around the edges of the container with inexhaustible energy, gathering food and garbage. The gamergates, in contrast, moved lazily above their brood in the center of the container. The workers worked. The gamergates lounged—waking late, moving little. When a worker approached a gamergate, the dominant ant Tasered it with her antennae, warning the worker to keep off her royal territory. The worker retreated, its antennae lowered. 'The remarkable thing about workers and gamergates,' Yan told me, 'is that they are almost genetically identical.' The gene sequence before and after the transition is the same. Yet, as DNA methyl groups or histone modifications get shifted around those gene sequences, the worker transforms into a gamergate, and virtually everything about the insect’s physiology and behavior changes. 'We’re going to solve how the change can have such a dramatic effect on longevity,' Reinberg said. 'It’s like one twin that lives three times longer than the other'—all by virtue of a change in epigenetic information."

Facebook’s Heading Toward a Bruising Run-In With the Russia Probe
"Facebook is so accustomed to treating its ‘internal policies’ as though they were something like laws that they appear to have a sort of blind spot that prevents them from seeing how ridiculous their resistance sounds. To use the cliche, it feels like a real shark jumping moment. As someone recently observed, Facebook’s ‘internal policies’ are crafted to create the appearance of civic concerns for privacy, free speech, and other similar concerns. But they’re actually just a business model."

LeBron James is still the undefeated champ of #NBArank
"When he was younger, James was otherworldly from the start of the regular season to the finish. Over the past few seasons, the path has been gradual. The data shows what the eye test does, effectively: Over the past few years, James often conserves energy early in the season and then hits the gas late. This plan has merit. James had maybe the greatest NBA Finals of his career in 2016, his fresh legs in the last three games of that seven-game saga perhaps helping him assemble what might go down as his career masterpiece."

Remember Kevin Love? LeBron and the Cavs need him more than ever
"It sometimes seems remarkable Love has survived this long in Cleveland, and that he outlasted Irving. Love sulked during much of the 2015-16 season. He absorbed LeBron's passive-aggressive tweets, the dirty looks after botched rotations on defense. It would not have been surprising had the Cavs lost him sometime in the winter of 2016. They reeled him back in. When Lue took over for David Blatt in January of that season, his very first meeting was with Love, Lue said. That March, during a dispiriting road trip when it appeared the Cavaliers were on the verge of coming apart, Lue profanely commanded Love reassert himself. Channing Frye lightened the mood after the Cavs rescued him from Orlando that February by pointing out how absurd it was for a championship contender to be so angsty. Frye and Richard Jefferson famously smothered Love, barging into his house for dinner, discovering Lil' Kev, re-engaging him with the team."

"This might be the right thing to do— regulators tend to like to work on the assumption of markets in which everyone has exactly the same information set. But it’s a debate that has never really taken place in public — as far as I know nobody’s ever made a general statement that this longstanding practice is now illegal. So it’s not surprising that we are now getting this series of scandals. The use of a position of privileged information to make money used to be the definition of what it meant to be a trader. At some point in the future, it is going to be the definition of what it means to be a criminal. And right now, we’re in the grey area where the boundaries of what constitutes the use of privileged information are being defined."

A hidden height limit holds back affordable mid-rise construction in DC
"For many areas in DC, land is expensive enough to fall into a Twilight Zone. These areas are expensive enough to require high-rise densities, but the local rents are too cheap to justify high rises’ high per-foot construction prices. In areas that are in-between, a lot of landowners are biding their time, waiting until the moment when land prices will justify a 90-foot high-rise — a situation which explains many of the vacant lots in what might seem like prime locations."

The NBA's DNP-Rest solutions were specifically made for LeBron James and the Warriors
"Since the competition committee is also taking on tanking, there is a perception that the rest rules would matter there, too. That hardly seems likely. With the exception of the Knicks and Lakers, the worst teams in the NBA are rarely on national TV. If a player like Eric Bledsoe is ruled out for weeks to improve the team’s chances of losing, a team like Phoenix will simply make up an injury and trust the NBA won’t investigate. The rest rules aren’t about Bledsoe, Carmelo Anthony, or the Brooklyn Nets bizarrely resting everyone in the season finale despite no benefit whatsoever. The rest rules are about two entities that the NBA can’t do without on national TV: the Warriors and LeBron James."

Do regulators cause regulatory incidents? Generally no; they’re understaffed and underfunded, and they don’t go on fishing expeditions. The thing which causes regulatory incidents is well-organized people taking paper trails to regulators which allow a regulator to trivially follow up with an investigatory letter. Accordingly, anyone who sounds like a well-organized professional with a paper trail is a problem to be swiftly addressed. That, dear reader, can be you."

We spent 31 years fighting for the Purple Line. Here’s what we learned.
"It's almost always a waste of time to try to convince the active opponents of a controversial project like the Purple Line. They are not deluded; they have reasons for their opposition, even if their real motives aren't the same arguments offered in public. Debating on their terms lets them define the issues. The strategic objective of Purple Line advocacy was always to mobilize supporters and convince the undecided. The main emphasis was always a positive message about the project's many benefits. At the same time, advocates realized it was more important to expose the opponents' false pose as grassroots environmentalists rather than to make point-by-point rebuttals of their arguments."

The Tiny Satellites Ushering in the New Space Revolution
"To get the satellites into optimal position, Planet uses a technique called differential drag, in which the solar panels act like sails pushing against the trace of atmosphere available to slow a chosen Dove down with respect to the others. Turned forward, the panels produce seven times as much resistance as when they’re horizontal. The concept had been largely theoretical until Planet proved it could be done for an array of satellites. When the Doves have been launched into a sun-synchronous orbit (one crossing the equator at the same local time every day), algorithms adjust their panels to guide them into position, spacing them out evenly. Getting all 88 of the Indian-launched satellites to fan out properly took a few months. As this story goes to press, they’re coming into perfect position."

Against Signal-Boosting As Doxxing
"I agree this is weird. It’s bizarre that so many people trust to security by obscurity, when anybody with an axe to grind can destroy their obscurity and reveal them to the world. It’s bizarre that we treat Twitter as a private place, when literally everything that happens there is visible to every human being on Earth. It’s bizarre that we trust to these fragile online identities when any hacker can cut through them, bizarre that we wear such different masks to different friends when they could just talk and compare notes, bizarre that we dare to talk at all when we know every word we say is logged and the future may be less forgiving than the past. But don’t let the fact that it’s bizarre make you think it isn’t important. How many of us can say, honestly, that we could bear the Panopticon?

How to Obfuscate
"Disappearance specialists have much to teach would-be obfuscators. Many of these specialists are private detectives or 'skip tracers'—professionals in the business of finding fugitives and debtors—who reverse engineer their own process to help their clients stay lost. In response to the proliferation of social networking and online presence, disappearance specialists advocate a strategy of disinformation, a variety of obfuscation. 'Bogus individuals,' to quote the disappearance consultant Frank Ahearn, can be produced in number and detail that will 'bury' pre-existing personal information that might crop up in a list of Web search results. This entails creating a few dozen fictitious people with the same name and the same basic characteristics, some of them with personal websites, some with accounts on social networks, and all of them intermittently active. For clients fleeing stalkers or abusive spouses, Ahearn recommends simultaneously producing numerous false leads that an investigator would be likely to follow—for example, a credit check for a lease on an apartment in one city (a lease that was never actually signed) and applications for utilities, employment addresses, and phone numbers scattered across the country or the world, and a checking account, holding a fixed sum, with a debit card given to someone traveling to pay for expenses incurred in remote locations. Strategies suggested by disappearance specialists are based on known details about the adversary: The goal is not to make someone 'vanish completely', but to put one far enough out of sight for practical purposes and thus to use up the seeker’s budget and resources."

The Life, Death, and Legacy of iPhone Jailbreaking
"Once a jailbreak crusader, it's gotten to the point where Freeman no longer recommends that people jailbreak their phones. It's dangerous, due to the higher risk of getting hacked, and it's not even worth it anymore, he says in a recent phone call. 'What do you get in the end?' he asks. 'It used to be that you got killer features that almost were the reason you owned the phone. And now you get a small minor modification. That turns into, like, a death spiral, where when you get fewer people bothering to jailbreak you get fewer developers targeting interesting things, which means there's less reasons for people to jailbreak,' he added. 'Which means there's fewer people jailbreaking, which causes there to be less developers bothering to target it. And then you slowly die.'"

These Women Are the Last Thing Standing Between You and Nuclear War
"Both missileers—they always work in teams of two, the capsule they occupy emblazoned with the words 'no-lone zone'—would open a safe located between their workstations. It's secured with two padlocks, one fastened on by each missileer at the beginning of the shift, the combinations known only to the owner. Inside is a code that the incoming encrypted message must match. But there's an A-side and a B-side and neither missileer knows both; they must be put together like opposite sides of an equation. It's all part of Two-Person Control—a system that ensures a rogue missileer can't start World War III on her own. 'It is a very precise method,' Barrington explains. 'It's not haphazard. It is exacting. Missileers have to know all kinds of rules. They have to know it cold.'"

The Risk of Nuclear War with North Korea
"Outside the Administration, the more people I talked to, the more I heard a strong case for some level of diplomatic contact. When Obama dispatched James Clapper to Pyongyang, in 2014, to negotiate the release of two prisoners, Clapper discovered that North Korea had misread the purpose of the trip. The government had presumed that he was coming in part to open a new phase in the relationship. 'They were bitterly disappointed,' he said. Clapper’s visit convinced him that the absence of diplomatic contact is creating a dangerous gulf of misperception. 'I was blown away by the siege mentality—the paranoia—that prevails among the leadership of North Korea. When we sabre-rattle, when we fly B-1s accompanied by jet escorts from the Republic of Korea and Japan, it makes us feel good, it reassures the allies, but what we don’t factor in is the impact on the North Koreans.' Clapper went on, 'I think that what we should do is consider seriously, in consultation with South Korea, establishing an interest section in Pyongyang much like we had in Havana for decades, to deal with a government that we didn’t recognize. If we had a permanent presence in Pyongyang, I wonder whether the outcome of the tragedy of Otto Warmbier might have been avoided. Secondly, it would provide on-scene insight into what is actually going on in North Korea—intelligence.'"

The Summer of Halo Top
"A fair criticism of Halo Top would be to ask, would you rather have a few bites of full-steam ice cream or an entire pint of something lighter? Most of us would like to assume the former, perhaps fancying ourselves dessert connoisseurs who appreciate quality over quantity. Any familiarity with human nature (and Halo Top’s sales numbers), however, doesn’t bear that thinking out. Yes, it is not quite ice cream. In fact, it exists in that uncanny valley between real and imitation, so close to the genuine product that it almost stands out more by comparison. But for many of us, the thrill of digging through an entire pint of chocolate ice cream with no residual guilt is worth the slight compromise that Halo Top offers."

The case for letting North Korea keep its nukes
"The most fundamentally important fact about North Korea’s nuclear program is that it is born out of fear — fear, specifically, of the United States. The Korean War began in 1950 when North Korea invaded the South and nearly conquered all of it. The only reason it didn’t was intervention by a US led-coalition, which in turn nearly took the entire North, stopped only by a Chinese counterintervention. After the war ended in an armistice in 1953, the US pledged to defend South Korea against future attack and left thousands of US troops deployed there — a constant reminder to Pyongyang that the world’s strongest military power was its enemy. Put another way, North Korea’s entire foreign policy and national identity has evolved around the threat of war with America. As a result, they’ve always been trying to improve their military capabilities in order to deter the US from invading. What this brief history suggests is that North Korea’s pursuit of nuclear missiles is fundamentally *rational*. North Korea is not a suicidal state; there is no evidence that it wants to blow up an American city and invite regime-ending retaliation. Its goal, according to every piece of evidence we have, is the opposite: to avoid war at all costs."
