The Budget Audiophile, Rolling Stone (2001) | dysmedia - Douglas Anthony Cooper
MOST PEOPLE IMAGINE that you can buy a pretty good stereo for $50,000. Not many suspect that you can put together a system almost as good for $2,000. This can’t be done, I’m afraid, with gear you find at your local RadioShack. To join the fraternity of the Miserly Audiophile, you have to know what you’re doing — it’s easy to drop two grand and end up with something dire. Also, if you are absolutely committed to the accurate, sub-rumbling reproduction of the bottom few notes produced by the world’s monster pipe organs, you probably won’t find satisfaction for less than five figures. But if you can develop an ear for a certain kind of (often British) component, it’s more than possible to create serious music at a less than silly price.

Baseball's Forgotten Brotherhood, The First Athlete Union in American Pro Sports | VICE Sports
The meeting was held in secret. John Montgomery Ward, a shortstop with the New York Giants, presided. It was October 22, 1885, and Ward and some of his teammates had gathered to discuss two grievances: low wages in an era when baseball's popularity was skyrocketing, and a rule known as the "reserve clause." The reserve clause bound players to a team for near perpetuity, even if the player's contract was short-term, as most of them were back then.

The meeting ended with an important decision: the players would unionize. The Brotherhood of Professional Baseball Players—baseball's first labor union—was born. Although little-known today, the Brotherhood altered the course of baseball history. In an ironic twist, the group ultimately failed to force the National League to change its labor practices, and instead helped the NL consolidate its power over America's pastime.

Air: a breathless report | rhulgeopolitics
I also want to share some news about my own book project Air, coming out in Reaktion’s Earth series which just published its first book Volcano. I had a lot of feedback from the publishers on my first draft last week and I’ve got quite a bit of revisions to do. I think they will certainly improve the book.

The book tries to look at Air as a substance between the scientific, the cultural and the political, concerning themes as wide as the science of climate change, breathing, instruments and technologies, art, literature, early conceptions of air from antiquity, architecture, security, uncertainty, urban health, flying, to the politics of life itself. Not such an easy task! At the moment the contents look something like this.

The Invention of Air
Airborne
An Excess of Air
Restoration
Insulation
Mirage
Dust to Dust

I hope to say a lot more about this project as I work on the revisions over the next few months. I hope the book will be timely given emergent agendas in geography right now on verticality, the volumetric, aerographies, affective atmospheres and ambience. But the book centrally tries to do things a bit differently with this taken for granted substance for wider audiences, and that’s an exciting challenge.

Hillary Clinton's autism platform is transformational – and empowering | Sara Luterman | Opinion | The Guardian
Hillary Clinton just made disability history. For the first time, a mainstream political candidate prioritized the rights and opinions of autistic people by embracing policies that autistic advocates and activists have rallied around for years.

Clinton’s autism plan, announced Tuesday, is well-informed and shows a grasp of the issues that few outside of disability rights circles have. If she wins the election and does even half of the things she promises, she could make an enormous difference in the everyday lives of autistic people. If she loses, she has still tremendously raised the bar on how presidential candidates can and should address autism.

Her plan focuses on necessary and sorely needed support programs for autistic people: improving employment opportunities and housing availability, significantly limiting the use of physical restraints, guaranteeing access to assistive communication technology for people who are nonverbal or have difficulty with spoken language and a specific call to do research on adult autism prevalence and needs. These issues are of vital importance to autistic people and our loved ones. No other major US presidential candidate has made these issues a part of his or her political platform.

Political discourse around autism in the US has followed a very different narrative over the past few decades: autism is a tragedy. Autism is an epidemic. Autistic children need you all to donate money to genetics research that will not help those currently living with autism in any direct or meaningful way.
