Zilpha Keatley Snyder dies at 87; wrote fantastical children's books
I remember Zilpha Keatley Snyder from the "Below The Root" video game I played on my Tandy 1000SX in the mid 80's. I stole her book "Below the Root" from Soehl and still have it to this day. I actually just read the first chapter while I was foam rolling.

SAUDI OIL MINISTER: I Don't Care If Prices Crash To $20 — We're Not Budging : worldnews
long-term-thinking, counterintuitive = Comments all seem to agree that although on the surface, it seems they are hurting themselves, they are doing it to drive US shale oil boom out of business, because prices have to be at $80/barrel for shale oil to be profitable. So this is a long term play to drive competitors out of the market.

Google's New CAPTCHA Is Easier For Proving Your Humanity
Interesting, I never knew this: "We’ve known CAPTCHAs for years for their awful distorted text that’s hard to read and get right a lot of the time. Google set out to fix that a year and a half ago, when it discovered that it could teach computers how to beat the traditional CAPTCHA with 99.8 percent accuracy and realized that if it could do that, so could others."

Islamic State Defector: 'If You Turn Against ISIS, They Will Kill You' : Parallels : NPR
brainwashing, crime-gangs = ""They are focusing on the young guys and the kids," he says. The militants target the young for indoctrination, breaking down traditional authority structures: the alliance to the family and to the tribe. "They can change their minds. [The young become] ready to leave their parents and fight with ISIS," to the death, he adds."

A group of disillusioned British jihadists who wanted to return home after fighting for Islamic State in Iraq and Syria have been taken prisoner by their militant commanders : worldnews
"Until now, IS is thought to have operated an open door policy which has allowed around 250 Britons to return but the start of US air attacks has made militant commanders paranoid that spies could direct attacks. It means that the formerly welcoming atmosphere for Western militants has now changed to suspicion as the terrorist group begins to turn on its own fighters, according to one security source."
