Hidden Brain : NPR
When most of us think about how we came to our political views, we often give a straightforward answer. We believe our stances on taxes, immigration or national security are shaped by those around us — our friends, parents, teachers. We assume our life experiences are the root of our political ideologies. But what if there is something deeper in us that drives the music we listen to, the food we eat — even the politicians that we elect? This week, we explore the role of biology in shaping our political identities.

My Favourite Secret Weapon – strace – zwischenzugs
’m often asked in my technical troubleshooting job to solve problems that development teams can’t solve. Usually these do not involve knowledge of API calls or syntax, rather some kind of insight into what the right tool to use is, and why and how to use it. Probably because they’re not taught in college, developers are often unaware that these tools exist, which is a shame, as playing with them can give a much deeper understanding of what’s going on and ultimately lead to better code.

Henry – Rob Delaney – Medium
My biggest fear had always been that I wind up somehow being conscious for eternity. Like that I die, wind up in heaven or hell or wherever and I remain “me” and just never shut off and have to endure being conscious and aware and nothing is wonderful enough or horrible enough to engage me for that long, i.e. eternity. That might be a factor in the heavy drinking I quit fifteen years ago; the idea that I could really effectively hit my own consciousness’ kill switch as needed. Might also be why I’ve always enjoyed naps more than food or money.

Knowhere News
Our technology scours the internet, discovering stories and identifying narratives, evaluating the factual claims and bias in reporting. This analysis informs a set of algorithms that write our three perspectives on every controversial story. Once articles have been drafted, our journalists review and edit the story before publication. This helps teach our algorithms to gain an ever-deeper understanding of quality and bias in the news.
