Why speaking Spanish is becoming dangerous in America | US news | The Guardian
In the last few months, a constant stream of race-related attacks, physical and verbal, have peppered the North American landscape like a feral pest. Last January, a woman was kicked out of a Florida UPS for speaking Spanish, the month prior an adult physically attacked legal South American immigrants – including a child – at a Canadian mall, and a few days ago a border agent in Montana arrested two women for the same thing, leaving them shaking with anger and crying at the unfairness of it all. Then there’s the case of the rich Manhattan lawyer who berated young workers at a deli for daring to communicate in the second most spoken language in the world in his presence.

Cougar kills one mountain biker and injures another in Washington state | US news | The Guardian
A mountain lion killed one mountain biker and mauled another in Washington state on Saturday when they rode into its territory. State officials later tracked the animal and shot it dead, police said.

The mountain bikers were riding together down a remote, backwoods trail at 11am local time in an area near North Bend, Washington state, around 30 miles (48 km) east of Seattle, when the they encountered the animal.

In the ensuing attack, the first rider received deep scratches and the other was dragged away by the cougar to its den, King county sheriff spokesman Sergeant Ryan Abbot said.

(99+) Falsification: How does it relate to reproducibility? | Brian D. Earp - Academia.edu
But now consider another change that was made. The priming materials were translated into French. Apparently, the replicating team assumed that the language used for a priming study is irrelevant to the outcome. But
this
auxiliary assumption may be mistaken. Based on a corpus analysis, a different team of researchers showed that the association between prime and stereotype was roughly six times stronger for the English words used in the original study than for their translated French equivalents in the replication study. The lesson here is that seemingly minor auxiliary assumptions can make a big difference for falsification (see Trafimow and Earp 2016)

Mac mini (Early 2006) | Low End Mac
Using the 32-bit only Core Duo CPUs allowed Apple to introduced Intel-based Macs before the Core 2 Duo, which supports both 32-bit and 64-bit operation, came to market. Because OS X 10.7 Lion is a 64-bit only operating system, Core Duo Macs do not support it, so OS X 10.6 Snow Leopard is the end of the Mac OS road for the earliest Intel Macs.

With a 2 GB memory ceiling, this Mac mini would never run Lion decently, but the first generation Intel Macs run Snow Leopard very nicely with 2 GB of RAM, especially after you’ve replaced the poky Core Solo CPU. If your Early 2006 Mac mini has 512 MB, upgrade immediately. You really need 1 GB to get okay performance from OS X 10.4 Tiger or 10.5 Leopard. As of June 2016, you can upgrade to 2 GB for $15 from Other World Computing, and with Snow Leopard just $20 from Apple, take this Mini as far as it will go with RAM and operating system.

Cable For Mac Mini to DVI Monitor
You can tell what display port your Mac mini came with in a couple different ways. The first and quickest way is to unhook your Mac mini and visually inspect the back to see what ports are included. If you have a Mac mini released mid 2007 or earlier you will see a DVI-I port and 2 USB ports on the back of the mini. If you have a Mac mini released in early 2009 or later you will see the new Mini-DVI port and 5 USB ports.

The second way to tell what display port your Mac mini is equipped with is to use the serial number as explained above. Locate the serial number and refer to the information below. The display port that your Mac mini comes with, depending on the model, is bold and italicized in the information that follows.

'Be Best': does Melania Trump's oddly named initiative break the laws of grammar? | Media | The Guardian
“Be Best” just so plainly doesn’t hold up to the laws of English grammar, which require that a superlative adjective following an imperative verb be preceded by the definite article “the”. Be good – be better – be the best: that’s the rule. In the 1990s, the British military ran a TV ad campaign that ended with the slogan: “Army soldier: be the best.” Try it without the the. “Army soldier: be best.” It sounds like you’re translating from the Sanskrit.

Secret UK push to weaken EU climate laws 'completely mad' | Environment | The Guardian
Benedek Jávor, the vice chair of the European parliament’s environment committee, told the Guardian: “The UK’s proposal to widen ‘flexibilities’ is completely mad and undermines the principle of additionality, as well as the overall ambition of the energy efficiency directive.”

“This approach would risk failure in our efforts to reach even moderately ambitious overall targets, while the higher – and beneficial targets – that we need to strive for could become lost altogether.”...

The EU’s climate goals for 2020 are a staging post to its more ambitious promise to the Paris conference of a 40% emissions cut by 2030.

Europe is expected to easily achieve this, although its CO2 emissions appear to be rising as economic activity picks up, while energy efficiency gains have gone into reverse.

Eurostat figures released last week showed a 1.8% rise in CO2 emissions from fossil fuel use in 2017 after a 0.4% fall the year before. Surprisingly though, the UK was the only EU country to reduce its electricity consumption in 2017.

The incel mind: As if hating women will get you a girlfriend - Chicago Tribune
What are we to make of “incels,” the oddball community of frustrated guys who go online to complain about how they can’t find women who want to have sex with them?

Gee, I wonder why.

There’s room for all sorts of opinions on the web, I like to think. But this one has turned deadly. An incel, which stands for “involuntary celibate,” is blamed for driving a rented van that jumped the sidewalk and plowed into pedestrians on a Toronto street on April 23.

Police charged Alek Minassian, 25, of Toronto with killing 10 people and injuring 15, most of whom were women. Before the attack, authorities say he posted a message on his Facebook page to announce his incel ties.

“The Incel Rebellion has already begun!” it said in part. “We will overthrow all the Chads and Stacys! All hail the Supreme Gentleman Elliot Rodger!”

That’s incel-speak. “Chads” in their world are guys who are cool and good-looking enough to attract what incels feel unfairly denied: sex with attractive and sexually active “Stacys.”

Facebook knows a ton about your health. Now they want to make money off it.
Let’s say you like a Facebook page devoted to breast cancer survivors. It has been a useful forum for comparing treatment options with others who have dealt with similar health issues. There’s only one problem: Facebook has now categorized you as a patient, and you constantly receive precisely targeted ads about cancer services available near you. They are showing up on your computer screen at work, for all your co-workers to see, right when you’re up for a big promotion...

In early April, CNBC reported that Facebook recently launched a project based in its secretive “Building 8” group to get hospitals to share anonymized patient data with them. The project was reportedly put on hold in the wake of the current scandal, but the stated plan was to match hospitals’ patient data on diagnoses and prescription information with Facebook so the company could combine that data with its own to construct digital profiles of patients.

Older men on e-bikes behind rising death toll among Dutch cyclists | World news | The Guardian
The deaths of men over 65 using electric bikes on Dutch roads have caused the number of cycling fatalities in the country to surpass the people killed in cars.

Official figures from the Netherlands’ central bureau of statistics show a near doubling of deaths on electric bikes in the last 12 months, three-quarters of which involved men of 65 years or over.

In 2017, 206 cyclists were killed in the Netherlands, 17 more than in 2016 and the highest number in 10 years. The same year 201 people lost their lives in cars (30 fewer than the previous year).

A quarter of the cyclists were on e-bikes, which have an integrated electric motor to propel cycles to speeds of around 20mph.

The Many Pitfalls of Cycling Fitness | Outside Online
That’s why I break traffic laws on a sliding scale. In an area with heavy motor vehicle traffic and absolutely no bicycle infrastructure, I’ll do whatever I need to do to stay safe. If I’m in suburban strip-mall hell, there’s no shoulder, and drivers are buzzing me like I’m a spy plane in their airspace, I’ll take to the sidewalk if I deem it necessary. However, if there are protected bike lanes and dedicated bicycle traffic signals and other acknowledgements of my existence, I’ll adhere as closely as possible to the letter of the law—not only because it’s safe and practical for me to do so, but also because I want to show my appreciation for a street design that says “You belong,” not “Adapt or die.”

Comment: Now is the time to tackle shipping emissions | DeSmog UK
At sea, ships burn “heavy fuel oil,” a sludgy residue of the oil refining process that contains 3,500 times more sulphur than road diesel (in Europe and the US).

Many of the world’s main shipping routes hug the coastlines of developing countries in Africa and Asia, meaning that fumes from passing ships are responsible for around 14 million childhood asthma cases and 400,000 premature adult deaths each year. The consequences of particulate matter pollution for brain development and learning are only beginning to be understood, but the early studies are worrying.

And ships are responsible for massive carbon emissions. If shipping was treated as a country it would be the 6th largest emitter in the world, next to Germany. But unlike Germany (and most other countries), it has no plan in place for how to reduce its emissions. Like aviation, some last-minute haggling meant shipping emissions were not mentioned in the Paris Agreement.

Self-driving Uber kills Arizona woman in first fatal crash involving pedestrian | Technology | The Guardian
Police identified the victim as 49-year-old Elaine Herzberg and said she was walking outside of the crosswalk with a bicycle when she was hit at around 10pm on Sunday. Images from the scene showed a damaged bike. The 2017 Volvo SUV was traveling at roughly 40 miles an hour, and it did not appear that the car slowed down as it approached the woman, said Tempe sergeant Ronald Elcock.

Elcock said he had watched footage of the collision, which has not been released to the public. He also identified the operator of the car as Rafael Vasquez, 44, and said he was cooperative and there were no signs of impairment.
The self-driving technology is supposed to detect pedestrians, cyclists and others and prevent crashes.

Extremism pays. That’s why Silicon Valley isn’t shutting it down | John Naughton | Opinion | The Guardian
In the old days, if you wanted to stage a coup, the first thing to do was to capture the TV station. Nowadays all you have to do is to “weaponise” YouTube. After all, its first motto was “broadcast yourself”. Accordingly, if governments of the western world really wanted to cripple these disruptive forces, then shutting down YouTube would be a giant step forward. It wouldn’t prevent other such services springing up, of course, but none would have the power and reach that YouTube’s billion-strong network effect provides.

This doesn’t mean that YouTube’s owner (Google) is hell-bent on furthering extremism of all stripes. It isn’t. All it’s interested in is maximising advertising revenues. And underpinning the implicit logic of its recommender algorithms is evidence that people are drawn to content that is more extreme than what they started with – or perhaps to incendiary content in general.

But their most important facilitator has been the UK government itself, which has rolled out the red carpet to a group whose enormous wealth became part of a narrative about a new golden age for the capital.

The ZAD Will Survive – Zad for ever
The end of the Declaration of Public Utility on the 9th of February turns the status of the ZAD’s lands on its head. Out of the 4077 acres earmarked for the airport, 1111 acres have been been cultivated for a long time by resisting farmers intending to recover their rights, whilst the movement wrenched 667 acres from the management of the Chamber of Agriculture to carry on collective agricultural experiments. 1309 acres of land are temporarily redistributed to farmers who signed an amicable agreement with Vinci [10]. As such, they had been financially compensated and obtained plots of land outside of the zone. Yet they continue to exploit and collect the Common Agricultural Policy on the lands they ceded to Vinci on the zone, thereby having their cake and eating it. The most greedy may, from now on, claim priority on future leases and take advantage of the hard fought over land preserved by the movement to enlarge their farms. Moreover, the former owners who were part of the struggle and who refused any agreement with Vinci will be able to recover their expropriated properties and choose to give it over to conventional use or to a more collective use by bringing them into a common property entity. The battle for the land will therefore be at the heart of this struggle for the months and years to come.

Mass shootings: why do authorities keep missing the warning signs? | US news | The Guardian
behavioral experts know the basic psychological profile common to almost all mass shooters of the post-Columbine type, whether they claim to be swayed by white supremacy, radical Islamism, another ideology, or no ideology at all: they tend to be loners, with perilously low self-esteem and poor or non-existent family relations, and they are looking for a way to validate themselves and take revenge on a world they blame for their troubles.

The next level of driverless cars: how to solve the problem of humans falling asleep
Read more

Two of the six collisions involving autonomous vehicles in California so far this year involved humans colliding with self-driving cars, apparently on purpose, according to incident reports collected by the California department of motor vehicles.

On 10 January, a pedestrian in San Francisco’s Mission District ran across the street to confront a GM Cruise autonomous vehicle that was waiting for people to cross the road, according to an incident report filed by the car company. The pedestrian was “shouting”, the report states, and “struck the left side of the Cruise AV’s rear bumper and hatch with his entire body”.

No injuries occurred, but the car’s left tail light was damaged.

In a separate incident just a few blocks away on 28 January, a taxi driver in San Francisco got out of his car, approached a GM Cruise autonomous vehicle and “slapped the front passenger window, causing a scratch”.

The police were not called in either case.

Poultry and nuts

Turkey and chicken contain high levels of tryptophan, which also boosts serotonin. “Foods that are high in tryptophan and vitamin B6 will help you make melatonin, the sleep hormone,” says Nerina Ramlakhan, sleep expert and author of Fast Asleep, Wide Awake. Other good sources of both are beans, lentils, cheese, tofu, tuna, eggs, whole grains, nuts and seeds.

The case for consistent use of medical eponyms by eliminating possessive forms
Unfortunately, despite criticisms, the possessive forms of medical eponyms remain in common use (e.g., Down’s syndrome rather than Down syndrome). Inconsistency in the use of eponyms in medical literature poses a problem not only to scholarly writing, but also to medical education [2]. Whereas the possessive form was applied nearly universally to medical literature from 1960s until the early 1970s [3], arguments both for and against the use of possessive medical eponyms emerged in the mid-1970s. Since then, however, there has been a slow move away from the use of possessive medical eponyms. “Stigler’s law of eponymy” from 1980 stated that no scientific discovery should be named after its original discoverer [3]. In addition, the World Health Organization in 2004 and the American Medical Association in 2007 advocated for eliminating the possessive form [4, 5].

Pourquoi les agriculteurs n'arrivent pas à réduire leurs émissions de GES
Responsable de 20% des émissions de gaz à effet de serre, l'agriculture fait partie de l'équation de la lutte contre le changement climatique. Mais les derniers résultats de la stratégie bas-carbone française ne sont pas reluisants : en 2016, le secteur affiche un dépassement de 
3% par rapport à l'objectif annuel d'émissions de CO2. Pourtant les solutions sont connues : optimisation de la fertilisation azotée, réduction des consommations d'énergie des bâtiments d'élevage, introduction de légumineuses dans les rotations, développement de l'agroforesterie, recours à la méthanisation, etc. Certaines de ces actions ont même un intérêt supplémentaire : elles améliorent la situation économique des exploitations. C'est le cas de la méthanisation par exemple. Selon la dernière étude de l'Ademe en la matière, les énergies renouvelables permettent aux agriculteurs de diversifier leurs revenus pour des montants allant de quelques milliers d'euros de réduction de leur facture énergétique à plus de 15.000 euros de revenus supplémentaires par an.
