Parents of #PokemonGo playing kids: this is a good article to read together. The kid and I just read it and had a good conversation about race, class and gentrification in our area. The kid was especially interested in exploring what sites are valued and recorded as historically significant.

Which Rice Has the Least Arsenic? - Consumer Reports
In late 2012 we released our original report on arsenic in rice, in which we found measurable levels in almost all of the 60 rice varieties and rice products we tested.

Our most recent testing and analysis gave us some new information on the risk of arsenic exposure in infants and children through rice cereal and other rice products. We looked at data released by the Food and Drug Administration in 2013 on the inorganic arsenic content of 656 processed rice-containing products. We found that ri...

Stopped 52 times by police: Was it racial profiling? - Business Insider
"[I]n 2001, the Legislature asked for a racial profiling study and it fell to Kearney, then at the Institute on Race & Poverty at the University of Minnesota Law School, to conduct it. His study, using information supplied voluntarily by 65 law enforcement jurisdictions in the state, found a strong likelihood that racial and ethnic bias played a role in traffic stop policies and practices. Overall, officers stopped minority drivers at greater rates than whites and searched them at greater rates, but found contraband in those searches at lower rates than whites. "The analysis found the pattern was more pronounced in suburban areas. In Fridley, New Hope, Plymouth, Sauk Rapids and Savage combined, blacks were stopped about 310 percent more often than expected."

The Holocaust is so overwhelming that we only really look at the end of the story — and that isn’t the whole story,” said Jon Seligman, an archaeologist with the Israel Antiquities Authority, who also led the team. “The whole story is the history of Jews who lived in this area for many, many centuries.” Before World War II, Vilnius was a bustling Jewish center with more than 100,000 people. When the Soviets took over Lithuania, they erected an elementary school over the rubble of the city’s Great Synagogue. Using the radar, the team uncovered artifacts from the synagogue, including its ritual bath house. “If we had never discovered the tunnel, people would have thought in another 20 years it was a myth, and they would have questioned – What do we really know happened?” said Dr. Freund. “This is a great story about the way that people overcame the worst possible condition, and still had this hope that they could get out.”

Decades later, Mississippi is still burning: Column
"Indifference has closed the case on the Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner slayings. Indifference has caused over 50 years of inaction and injustice for the dozens, maybe hundreds of others who died by racist violence. Eight bodies of African-American men were found while the FBI searched for Chaney, Goodman and Schwerner, but where was their investigation? Where was the national outrage over their deaths? Where was their justice? "The state of Mississippi bears as much blood on its hands as any of the men who killed Chaney, Goodman, Schwerner, and the named and nameless others who fell victim to racist violence. Mississippi has closed this case, but the larger case will never be closed until the state is held accountable for its part in this crime."

AG Jim Hood: 'Mississippi Burning' case closed
"Hood said there were two suspects still living, James "Pete" Harris and Jimmy Lee Townsend, but there is not enough evidence to pursue cases against them. "According to testimony in the 1967 federal trial, Harris made telephone calls to help gather Klansmen to beat and eventually kill the civil rights workers. Townsend, a teenager at the time, was reportedly in one of the cars in that high-speed chase but stayed with the car when it broke down. "According to the Justice Department's report, authorities tried to get Townsend to testify against Harris and Olen Burrage, who owned the property where the three civil rights workers were buried, but Townsend maintained he knew nothing about the killings."

Civil Rights Cold Cases: ‘We Are Writing to Inform You ...’ - Document - NYTimes.com
In 2006, the F.B.I. started re-opening unsolved homicide cases from the civil-rights era. Despite hopes for justice, almost all have ended the same way, with agents hand-delivering or mailing letters to families of the long deceased to notify them that their cases have been closed.

Sometimes nothing could be done because the prime suspect had died. Sometimes it was unclear whether a hate crime had occurred in the first place. Copies of dozens of these letters were given to The New York Times b...

SoundCloud - Hear the world’s sounds
When the iPad first came out in 2010 there was chatter that went in two directions: 1. It’s just a big iPhone 2. I’ll never carry a laptop again Both were wrong. The big iPhone comment was quickly dispelled as people (and their kids) fell under the consumption thrall of iPads. But iPads never could meet the needs of most laptop users –- until now. Benedict Evans and Steven Sinofsky offer their reasons why the iPad Pro hits the mark as a machine for all kinds of things, and why it may have shoved their own laptops aside for almost everything.

Creating Emergency Fund with Low Income
An emergency fund is one of the pillars of personal finance. Having a sizeable emergency fund might secure your financial future and safeguard against financial crisis. Emergency fund shields you from borrowing money at a high interest. For example, a $10,000 unforeseen medical expense, if paid with a borrowed money, will require you to pay almost $20,000 over the years, including interest charges. That’s a lot of money. If you have $10,000 saved in an emergency fund, you can pay without borrow...
