I’m a Paramedic: Here’s How the Apple Watch Series 4 Will and Won’t Save Lives
"I think the most significant immediate value to the Apple Watch Series 4’s ECG capability will come in refining AFib detection and letting doctors better monitor known AFib patients. Over time, I’m sure more studies will look for additional issues that can be detected with the Apple Watch’s Lead I ECG, but they will always be limited to a few well-known and major arrhythmias that are both detectable and actionable. Ventricular fibrillation, for example, is easy to detect but you probably wouldn’t be capable of holding your finger on the Digital Crown because you’d be busy dying."

Why Aren’t We Building Middle Income Housing?
"Of course developers are motivated by profit, but I don’t think there is any reason to believe that real estate developers are any more (or less) greedy than producers in any other industry. Yet when you look at most other consumer goods, the market provides options at a range of price, and quality, points. In the auto market, working class and middle-income people don’t all drive 40-year-old BMWs and Mercedes, many buy brand new Ford Focuses and Honda Civics. While some of the most profitable cars on the road are luxury cars, the Ford F-150 pickup truck and the Toyota Camry are also at the top of the list, and it’s not hard to see why. In 2016, Toyota sold almost 400,000 new Camrys and nearly as many new Corollas. Their best selling luxury car, the Lexus EX, sold only 50,000 units. Even assuming they earn a much higher margin per car, luxury models are not better investments because the volume is so much lower."

Here’s why developers seem to only build luxury housing
"The luxury-only problem is to a large extent a function of the fact that we have eliminated incremental change from most corners of our cities. Neighborhoods composed of single-family houses are declared almost entirely off-limits to development. In the remaining areas, we thus make sure that intense pent-up market demand is concentrated like a fire hose, and that development is undertaken primarily at large scales (giant apartment complexes) and in needlessly expensive ways. No wonder 'they only build luxury housing'. We've made it pretty hard to afford to do anything else."

David Chang’s secret code to unleashing the most amazing flavors on Earth
"I’m making this all sound like a very intellectual exercise. And creating this food can be just that, but eating it shouldn’t be. These dishes should taste seamless; they shouldn’t feel like math equations. In fact, the more obviously conceptual a dish is, the less powerful it will be. This is something that still bothers me about our ceci e pepe dish. If I could do it again, I wouldn’t call it that—I’d name it something like chickpeas with buttered noodles. Ceci e pepe is too explicit. It’s telling diners what to think instead of letting them draw their own conclusions. The element of surprise is part of the magic."

Inside Apple’s iPhone XS Camera Technology
"Apple’s depth editing is all the more remarkable because it lets you adjust the aperture in post without touching the exposure. In traditional and DSLR photography, every adjustment of the f-stop has to be met with a correlative adjustment of the exposure setting. A smaller aperture means less light while a more open one blows out the exposure in the photo unless you increase the shutter speed. However, sliding the depth editor back and forth on an iPhone XS image adjusts that blur exponentially while somehow maintaining your original exposure. It’s a heavy lift computationally, but Marineau-Mes said they do it all in real-time."

"Carmelo's game has slipped a ton, but he shouldn't be off the list entirely, and he's more effective in a vacuum than Pau Gasol. This revision solves the Lonzo problem (Brogdon in above him). It also solves the ensuing Brogdon clickbait problem (nobody cares about Brogdon at 100, but Carmelo would be perfect). And finally, even though there's no real difference between Dirk and Melo at this point, this revision also allows Ben and Rob to elevate Dirk over Carmelo and quietly grandstand about their basketball principles (an unstated goal of this entire ranking project)."

wideNES - Peeking Past the Edge of NES Games
"Unlike modern GPUs, which have large internal framebuffers, the PPU has *no frame-buffer whatsoever*! To save on space, the PPU stores scenes as a grid of 64x32 8x8 pixel tiles. Instead of resolving the pixel data ahead of time, tiles are stored as pointers into CHR Memory (Character Memory), which contains the actual pixel data. Since the NES was developed in the 80s, the PPU was not built with modern display technology in mind. Instead of rendering full-frames at a time, the PPU outputs NTSC video designed to be displayed on a CRT, which outputs video pixel by pixel, scanline by scanline, top to bottom, left to right. Why is all this important? Well, since the PPU renders frames top-to-bottom, scanline-by-scanline, it is possible to send the PPU instructions *mid-frame* to create otherwise impossible video effects! These effects could be as simple as changing the palette, or as advanced as, you guessed it, creating Status Bars!"

I Also Went to the Royal Wedding
"The images of the royal family to which Americans are exposed create an air of false familiarity; they are close-ups, cropped around the subjects, removing them from the larger context of their settings. Stand at the gate of a royal residence, however, and true perspective comes rushing in. These people are as remote as distant stars. Their homes are mammoth. Public tours of Windsor Castle file through about 20 rooms; the castle is estimated to contain roughly 1,000. On inspection, the sumptuously appointed spaces of a bygone era seem arbitrarily privately occupied by the royal family. The robust schedule of daily tours at Versailles proves that a palace does not have to be lived in to exist, or to generate tourist income. A roughly equivalent setup would be United States taxpayers paying the collateral descendants of George Washington tens of millions of dollars a year to install themselves in a portion of Mount Vernon closed to public access. If they weren’t already doing it, the idea of the British monarchy would seem a hard sell."

The Jaguar Is Made for the Age of Humans
"Before departing for Candamo, we were told to expect some unusual behavior from critters unaccustomed to humans. We heard about monkeys dropping out of trees to investigate their strange bipedal cousins; and once we arrived, we quickly learned that the caiman lounging in the river didn’t bother to swim away while we rinsed off our dishes. But jaguars that crept into campsites, completely unruffled by a bunch of humans with headlamps, tents, and Olah’s phone blasting the same silly pop song over and over? No one expected that. Had I done a bit more research, I would have learned that in one sense, our experience wasn’t that unusual. Many humans who visit the Peruvian rain forest are calmly watched by a jaguar or two. Most of them, however, don’t realize they’re under surveillance."

The Mystery of Max Money
"Removing salary limits is an appealing idea, and it would probably inject a bit more balance into the league. Players would have to make a real choice based on wildly divergent salary amounts, roster strength, and other variables. Capping max salaries today works to (almost) equalize what everyone can offer, and that allows players to choose teams based on other variables: market size, the appeal of a team’s city, tax laws, and the presence of another superstar. A certain subset of teams will always lose out in that choice. But uncapping individual salaries is a complicated concept with ripple effects and unintended consequences, and it touches on every other part of the NBA system. You can’t move one branch of the tree — the player salary structure — without anticipating how it will shift every other branch."

"This introduces moral hazard. It is a get-out-of-jail-free card. If teams make suboptimal decisions, even with 28- and 29-year-old players, they should pay for them, several executives told me.

(To be clear: Wall is really good -- I've voted him to multiple All-NBA teams over the years -- and his deal is fine for now, recent photographic evidence notwithstanding.) If that comes to pass, the Wizards should have to live with it, the thinking goes."

How the Sixers Can Have Their Cake and Eat It, Too

It seems silly, but is it any sillier than Kevin Garnett and Ray Allen joining the Celtics in 2007, Kevin Durant signing with the Warriors in 2016, or any other major star movement from the past decade-plus? Anything is possible in the NBA, especially when a team has as much flexibility as the Sixers do. 'Our salary cap position going forward is easily the NBA’s best,' Hinkie wrote in 2016. 'The most room, the most flexibility, providing the widest available set of options in free agency or trade of any club. This stockpile can be used all at once or strategically over the ensuing years to acquire players that fit your team, improve in your development program, and help you move up the standings.' Optionality had long been a buzzword in the Process era. Just a few years later, the Sixers are on the verge of making the ultimate decision."

The 10 Biggest Questions of the 2018 NBA Free-Agency Bonanza
"With Marcin Gortat now on an expiring contract and another intriguing wing in Troy Brown Jr. on a rookie deal joining the fold on draft day, the Wizards all of a sudden have more than max deals to bargain with. A sign-and-trade built around Boogie Cousins for Otto Porter Jr. still makes all kind of sense for both sides. The Wizards could put together a similar package for Swole Myles Turner if Indiana wants to try again with the pace-and-space offense it forced onto Paul George three years ago. Or they might be desperate enough for the nuclear option: aggregating a few expirings to eat the remaining $52.5 million owed to Hassan Whiteside, whose surliness and lob-catching would be an easy fit on a John Wall–driven team."

The Musical Diversity of Pop Songs
"'Track-and-hook' is Seabrook’s coinage for a music-making method that fundamentally distinguishes today’s music-making from all that came before. What separates track-and-hook from its predecessors is how the music is made. The storied, solitary figure working out musical problems at a piano while filling up an ashtray has been replaced by teams of digital production specialists and subspecialists, each assigned to a snare track, a bass track, and so on, mixed and matched and stuck together like Legos. 'The process doesn’t lend itself very well to art,' Seabrook said. Instead, track-and-hook is far more literally factory-like, a mode of production that emphasizes specialization and volume. As the technology writer Nicholas Carr wrote, 'The manufacture of pop songs has been so thoroughly industrialized that it makes the old Motown ‘hit factory’ look like a sewing circle.'"

"Ultra-aggressive help defense is really hard work. Replay that clip and watch how far DeRozan’s ghost has to move as the Knicks swing the ball. That’s brutal, and it’s not a coincidence that the only team that consistently mirrors the help defense of its ghosts is Miami, Rucker says. The Heat have three of the best wing defenders in the league in Shane Battier, LeBron James, and Dwyane Wade, and the latter two are among the NBA’s most gifted pure athletes. James can mimic DeRozan’s hyperactive ghost in a way no other player can, Rucker says. 'LeBron basically messes up the system and the ghosts,' Rucker says. 'He does things that are just unsustainable for most players.'"

Swedish death cleaning and the anorexic home

It’s only once the era has passed that a definitive, overarching look becomes more clear (the purple velvet sofa you bought in 1997 did not look like the 1990s until about 2010, when it did, irredeemably). The pristine domestic look of our time surely expresses some desire for escape from the trash compactor’s worth of stimuli that crowds us out every day. But I would posit it has flown from being the product of an anxious headspace to the creator of more anxiety, a kind of vicious circle."

The Potential Legal Consequences of Bryan Colangelo's Twitter Controversy
"The 76ers also have reason to investigate if any company property, including company issued computers or iPhones, may have been used by Colangelo to engage in conduct that harms the franchise. As explored below, such conduct would make it more possible for Harris to fire Colangelo 'for cause'. For an NBA team, analytics formulas and trade and draft strategies could be considered 'information' or 'design' of a confidential character. Under Pennsylvania law, disclosure of a trade secret can be classified as unlawful misappropriation when the person who made the disclosure had a duty to keep such information confidential. While the 76ers wouldn’t sue Colangelo, should the team determine that he misappropriated information, it would make it much easier for the team to fire Colangelo for cause."

In a world awash with statistics about global nuclear supremacy, a simple fiction about daily life in a postnuclear world served as an antidote to the bureaucratic magic that had been spun around the possibility of conflict.

Why it didn't work out for Isaiah Thomas in Cleveland
"Had the Cavs backed out, which they considered doing for several days, the Celtics would have been in a tough position. They had already celebrated Irving's arrival and would have alienated Thomas and Jae Crowder. Adding to the Cavs' leverage was the nature of Thomas' hip injury becoming public, thereby further diminishing his trade value and putting Boston in an even tighter spot if the deal fell through. When the dust settled, the fact that Cleveland got only a second-round pick after pausing the deal -- and not an additional first-rounder or young player such as Jayson Tatum, Jaylen Brown or Terry Rozier -- didn't just disappoint James as a basketball player. It disappointed him as a businessman."

Where were all of the old people? What of the need for an $8.99 chicken breast with a pair of watery, steamed-vegetable sides? What happened to the early bird special? The short answer, I learned, is that the retirees who heralded the early bird are going away, and that their replacements, while burdened by the overall decline of the middle class, have different expectations about what retired life should look like — mostly, they do not want to be reminded in any way that they’re old now, especially if they can afford that luxury. Millennials might be killing chains, but boomers are driving the early bird to extinction."

A Match Made in Paradise: The Story of Chinese-Tiki
"In her book The Fortune Cookie Chronicles, Jennifer 8. Lee describes Chinese restaurant culture as fundamentally 'open-source', to borrow a term from the tech world. 'Good ideas have historically rippled quickly through the Chinese-restaurant system, carried by word of mouth, and by the experiences of dispersing immigrants,' she explains. If something proves successful—General Tso’s chicken, for instance—it gets duplicated everywhere, a theory that explains why tiki drinks continued to find a home in Chinese restaurants even as the Polynesian trend began to wane in the late 1960s. According to Lee, Chinese food—especially when found outside of China—is above all else, malleable: 'A driving force behind Chinese cooking is the desire to adapt and incorporate indigenous ingredients and utilize Chinese cooking techniques… Chinese cooking is a not a set of dishes. It is a philosophy that serves local tastes.'"

The Most Awful Transit Center in America Could Get Unimaginably Worse

"The job of implementing the rules falls to a group of technical advisers who gather weekly at the Ministry of Health and provide guidance on whether a snack company should remove the dancing cat logo from cookie packages or whether an adult‘s voice should replace the small, childlike one hawking corn chips on a radio spot. 'Sometimes it’s easy, like if a dog is wearing glasses and talking like a person, but sometimes it’s not,' said Dr. Lorena Rodriguez, the ministry’s head of nutrition. 'We fight and fight and fight until we have consensus.'"

After Hours
"The peaks and valleys created by a massive population living in a standardized way are the fallout of this well-meaning reform. Traffic congestion is an Ecclesiastes problem: The season for driving to work and the season for driving home have been so successfully written into the human experience in industrialized areas that the cascade of rush-hour traffic now feels like a force of nature. What’s more, the regularity of the time to type and the time to file, the time to answer phones and the time to sit in meetings does not seem to have provided a reassuring bulwark against existential despair. For the off-peaker, the unnatural rhythms of the standard workday and work-week have trapped the average worker in the agony of an inefficient cycle."

How will the NBA respond to the Mavs allegations?
"Silver, an attorney by profession and former clerk to U.S. District Judge Kimba Wood, adopted an investigative approach in response to the Donald Sterling recording. Silver directed league general counsel Rick Buchanan and former assistant U.S. Attorney David Anders to interview witnesses and secure as much evidence as possible. After reviewing the evidence, Silver formulated his punishment of Silver and recommended that the NBA owners vote out Sterling. If the NBA investigates the Mavericks, the league would demand that the team turn over various records, including emails, employee reviews and other correspondences. The league would also likely arrange for in-person interviews with Cuban, Mavericks officials and former employees—including those who spoke with Wertheim and Luther. In addition, the league would evaluate to what extent the scandal harms the NBA’s image and business relations. If, for example, sponsors drop the Mavericks or the NBA in response to the allegations, the league would be more inclined to impose a severe punishment."

I Started the Media Men List
"The spreadsheet was intended to circumvent all of this. Anonymous, it would protect its users from retaliation: No one could be fired, harassed, or publicly smeared for telling her story when that story was not attached to her name. Open-sourced, it would theoretically be accessible to women who didn’t have the professional or social cachet required for admittance into whisper networks. The spreadsheet did not ask how women responded to men’s inappropriate behavior; it did not ask what you were wearing or whether you’d had anything to drink. Instead, the spreadsheet made a presumption that is still seen as radical: That it is men, not women, who are responsible for men’s sexual misconduct."

How to Hire Fake Friends and Family
"Morin: When you’re working, is it purely acting, or do the feelings ever become real?
Yuichi: It’s a business. I’m not going to be her father for 24 hours. It’s a set time. When I am acting with her, I don't really feel that I love her, but when the session is over and I have to go, I do feel a little sad. The kids cry sometimes. They say, 'Why do you have to leave?' In those instances, I feel very sorry that I’m faking it—very guilty. There are times, when I’m done with the work and I come back home, where I sit and watch TV. I find myself wondering, 'Is this, now, the real me, or the actor?'
Morin: How do you answer that question?
Yuichi: I don’t think I have an answer. The person that used to be me—is he me now? I know that it’s common for actors to feel that way. If you’re a really good actor—if you’re in it all the time—it feels very unsettling."

The Wonder Drug for Aging (Made From One of the Deadliest Toxins on Earth)
"Part of what protects the Botox empire is the sheer complexity of the drug. The recipe isn’t patent-protected—it’s a trade secret, like the formula for Coke. As long as Allergan can protect it, would-be duplicators have to start from scratch. Even if the procedure were out in the open, Brin likens Botox manufacturing to making a fine wine—a winemaker can’t necessarily replicate a rival’s vintage. 'The fundamental process is an anaerobic fermentation process,' he says. 'The amount of time, the purification process, the reagents that are used with it, these are very, very important, and they’re heavily controlled.'"

Those people who are pushing back their chairs and clearing the dessert plates from the table just as you are squeezing the oily tangerine peels into the flames to watch the blue shower of sparks, who are emptying all the ashtrays just as you are dipping your finger in the wine and then running it around the rim of your wineglasses to make tones like those from a monastery in Tibet. When I invite you over, I mean it. I mean: Sit down. I will take care of you. I will buy the food and get the drinks and set the table and do the cooking, and I will clean up after. And when I come to your house, you will do the same. I will get to have the honor of being a guest. To perfectly show up, 10 minutes after the appointed time, with a bottle in hand for you, to bring my outgoing, conversational self, my good mood, my appetite, and to then enjoy all that is offered to me, and to then get my coat at the very end and leave without having lifted a finger.

"In the process of writing the book, Grann said, through all the archival work, there’s 'a kind of relationship with these documents that you begin to develop as you become more familiar with them, and as you hold them, and as you look at them.' He likened it to the relationship you develop as you speak to someone, face to face, in an interview; it’s more than you could ever get over email. 'I thought the *handwriting* in that ledger was revealing,' he said. 'It was just a simple word. And I just kept thinking, "Who was that bureaucrat who kept writing this word 'dead'?" And I just would look at the handwriting, and that’s all they wrote, and in that word it contained volumes of hidden history, suffering, death, poisonings — souls.'"

The Secret Life of the City Banana
"By 1960, the pathogen had all but destroyed the banana crop. 'The Gros Michel was rendered commercially extinct,' said Mr. Koeppel, the banana historian. The breed chosen by the industry to replace it, the Cavendish, was resistant to that particular strain of Panama Disease, but it wasn’t as sturdy as the Gros Michel. It transformed the industry into the one we know today, Mr. Koeppel said, requiring boxes, refrigeration and advanced ripening technology. Today, almost all export bananas in the world are Cavendish. Chosen more for its disease resistance, it is not necessarily the most flavorful variety, according to Mr. Koeppel. He called it the McDonald’s of bananas. In India, where there are hundreds of banana breeds, the Cavendish is known as the hotel banana."

Observers have unironically called this crew fast-food 'disruptors'. In the past five years, Matthews’s team has trotted out such blockbuster menu items as the Doritos Locos Taco (in Nacho Cheese, Fiery, and Cool Ranch varieties), a breakfast taco with a waffle for a shell, and a chalupa with fried chicken in place of its usual flatbread. Until a year and a half ago, however, one simple idea had foiled them: a fried tortilla full of oozing, molten cheese. 'Having this fabulous taco with melty cheese in every single bite was something we started dreaming about 10 years ago,' Matthews says."

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.'"

"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."

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 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."

That those birds—usually two, a male and a female known as a territorial pair—don’t live there but fly in every day from 20 miles away?

I don’t mention this to dispute Chick-fil-A’s constitutional right to free speech.

Over 31 years, Laz has built and manipulated Barkley culture, and the community of past and hopeful future Barkers is only too happy to self-police the borders of their exclusive group.

The Elements of Bureaucratic Style
"In Munoz’s entire statement, this sentence stands out as the most chilling: 'Our agents were left with no choice but to call Chicago Aviation Security Officers to assist in removing the customer from the flight. He repeatedly declined to leave.' The phrase, 'left with no choice' is calculated and deliberate, and every rhetorical move of the preceding paragraphs is leading up to this moment. The bureaucratic state never acts of its own volition; it is always reactionary, and it always acts because the victim leaves it no choice. The mind, of course, reels with all of the choices available to United’s management in this instance: offering a higher compensation figure until someone agreed, transporting the crew to Louisville on another plane, acceding to Dao’s request that, as a doctor, he had patients to see the following morning and deserved priority, or simply waiting. But once this became a display of power and authority, they were left with no choice but violence."

What was behind the Butler trade, and what each team does now
"I'm officially tired of these three draft things: 1. Every team, a year from now, claiming they were *this close* to drafting whichever guy turns into a second-round steal. 2. Every team reacting to every Spurs pick by exclaiming, "Of course San Antonio took him. We knew they would all along. He's really good. Classic Spurs." The Spurs pick like 28th or lower every season. If you think the guy is good, just take him yourself. 3. Teams complaining about a lack of parity, and then selling the taxed-out defending champions a chance to draft precisely the player they want on a minimum contract."

We asked 8 Senate Republicans to explain what their health bill is trying to do
"Over the course of the past week, Vox asked eight Republican senators to explain the affirmative case for the bill. They rarely answered directly, at least not on the bill’s policy merits. Sometimes a senator could identify a desired *outcome*, like 'lowering premiums' or 'stabilizing marketplaces'. But they rarely could explain the *mechanism* through which they planned on achieving that outcome."

Why Aren’t We Building Middle Income Housing?
"I know how easy it is to call for lower standards in someone else’s neighborhood, but let me reassure you that I live on the front line of this question. I live in Oakland in a neighborhood of craftsman houses from the early 1900s. Sometime in the 1960s, the city allowed developers to tear down a significant number of these modest but nicely designed houses and build exactly the kind of inexpensive apartment buildings that are illegal in most of urban America today. The two apartment buildings on my block are totally out of scale with the rest of the neighborhood, they have less parking than would be required today, and they are frankly, really ugly. There is no doubt in my mind that they impact property values, and help explain why the City of Oakland imposes all manner of expensive design requirements on new apartment buildings today. But this story privileges an upper middle-class point of view—it is the way you look at it if you are already a homeowner. You will never hear any of the homeowners on my block talk about it this way, but it is just as true that none of us would have been able to afford to live in our neighborhood if it were not for these ugly buildings. The presence of this modest quality housing has partly blunted the forces of gentrification in this part of Oakland. People can’t tell the same story about how the neighborhood is "up and coming" because it is obvious looking at them that these buildings are never going upscale."

‘I just can’t seem to get a break’: After a year, Metro’s chief still faces an uphill climb
"As the head of the region’s transit agency, who had observed the alarming conditions firsthand, Wiedefeld said the decision was his to make — not something to hand down to regional leaders for debate. 'They don’t have the technical background,' he said in a recent interview. 'They had not been part of what I’d seen, what I’d heard, what we had looked at. It wouldn’t be fair for them, it wouldn’t be fair to put them in that spot.'"

This NBA Life
"From there, Clifton asked if they wanted to go hang off the edge of the Space Needle (she meant the CN Tower) — which Jefferson called 'some white people shit' — and then Frye took his own advice and dug into the bottom of the shrimp dumplings with his uncovered paw.
Kyrie Irving: 'Wow, Channing. That is fucking ridiculous. Wow. He found a secret stash underneath the sauce, didn’t even wait, he just took his hands …'
Frye: 'I clamped it.'"

How LeBron and Kyrie orchestrate the NBA's scariest play
"Players and coaches discuss the LeBron-Irving pick-and-roll as if it brings actual death and terror. 'LeBron will lay you out,' says Mike Budenholzer, head coach of the Atlanta Hawks, and a man who sounds like he's sick of thinking about this. 'Kyrie sets a good screen. They know all the tricks. They are a nightmare.'"

Transcript of New Orleans Mayor Landrieu’s address on Confederate monuments
"It is self-evident that these men did not fight for the United States of America, They fought against it. They may have been warriors, but in this cause they were not patriots. These statues are not just stone and metal. They are not just innocent remembrances of a benign history. These monuments purposefully celebrate a fictional, sanitized Confederacy; ignoring the death, ignoring the enslavement, and the terror that it actually stood for. After the Civil War, these statues were a part of that terrorism as much as a burning cross on someone’s lawn; they were erected purposefully to send a strong message to all who walked in their shadows about who was still in charge in this city."
