Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez's 'Corruption Game' Speech Is Now the Most Viewed Twitter Video of Any Politician : politics
I've noticed the last few years have brought about a tremendous increase in the awareness of income inequality & "the 1%" and so forth.

Forces:
- Bernie Sanders, Elizabeth Warren, Alexandra Ocasio-Cortez

- The increasing interest in socialism: https://old.reddit.com/r/politics/comments/asip0s/socialism_is_gaining_in_popularity_and_todays/

- Occupy Wall Street

- The Dutch economist who went to Davos and told billionaires their taxes need to go up

I've struggled with whether this deserves its own tag or if the combination of capitalism-greed, taxes-as-a-concept, wealth-income-distrubtion, and a few others is enough....

Mickey Mouse will be public domain soon—here’s what that means | Ars Technica
Wow...... I remember reading about this back in 1998. I thought copyright would be endlessly extended. Glad to hear this is not the case.

Now we need to turn back the dial and adjust copyright to last no more than 50 years

That's enough for someone who created a monumental work of art to live their life and die without having to work another day in their lives. The children and grandchildren can go find jobs. Or just invest the mountains of money.

A New Breed of Trader on Wall Street: Coders With a Ph.D. - The New York Times
Almost 20 years ago, I told Alex this is how things would turn out. High frequency trading + advanced mathematicians (I was wrong, I didn't know it would be physicists) would rule the markets.

Playboy to stop publishing images of nude women as it seeks greater audience
strategy = Wow, by removing nudity from the site (therefore going from NSFW to SFW), they went from 4MM to 16MM pageviews a month! But some people will look at that and say "they should have just started with being SFW"... but they never would have made a wave back in the 50s when they started if they hadn't been nude. The point is that there is no definite "right thing" to do. It's all about the world around you and doing something that is going to stand out in the current culture and climate.

Salty, Sweet, Sour. Is It Time To Make Fat The Sixth Taste? : The Salt : NPR
"The taste of fat may also signal to our brains and digestive systems that we should eat less, because something caloric and satiating about to make its way down to our guts. "This may be why low-fat foods have been generally unsuccessful so far," Mattes says. Most low-fat alternatives are designed to emulate the texture of fat, but not the taste — and our bodies aren't fooled by it."

The Likely Cause of Addiction Has Been Discovered, and It Is Not What You Think | Johann Hari
"Professor Alexander argues this discovery is a profound challenge both to the right-wing view that addiction is a moral failing caused by too much hedonistic partying, and the liberal view that addiction is a disease taking place in a chemically hijacked brain. In fact, he argues, addiction is an adaptation. It's not you. It's your cage."

The Cheapest Generation: Why Millennials aren’t buying cars or houses, and what that means for the economy : Futurology
See top comments by Lube_it_with_blood and Imperfectionitis, basically saying the author is missing the point, this isn't a generation completely different than previous ones, it's a reaction to the conditions presented them by a generation of savvy consumers who know not to buy what they can't afford (basically, an extension of capitalism-greed and the fact that wages are down compared to previous generations)

Your Dearly Departed ... in a Vending Machine | Fast Forward | OZY
I always wondered about this on the micro level - how do cemetaries stay in business. They only have a finite amount of space. What happens when it fills up? Is there a monthly fee? Turns out on a macro level, we're running running out of space to bury the dead.

Comcast to begin charging for data usage on home internet the same way cell phone companies are charging for data : technology
capitalism-greed = See the comments, They give a $5 discount if you go form 300GB to 5GB, but if you then use more than 5GB, they charge you $1 per GB. Complete, utter abuse of their monopoly.
