Speaker Paul Ryan retires: his legacy is debt and disappointment - Vox
In important ways, Trump is not a break from the Republican Party’s recent past but an acceleration of it. A party that acculturates itself, its base, and its media sphere to constant nonsense can hardly complain when other political entrepreneurs notice that nonsense sells and decide to begin marketing their own brand of flimflam.

Ultimately, Ryan put himself forward as a test of a simple, but important, proposition: Is fiscal responsibility something Republicans believe in or something they simply weaponize against Democrats to win back power so they can pass tax cuts and defense spending? Over the past three years, he provided a clear answer. That is his legacy, and it will haunt his successors.

How to take more risk in your decisions — Quartz at Work
A new study published in the journal Organizational Behavior and Human Decision Processes finds that though people often crave risk, our impulse to self-protect paralyzes us from choosing the road less traveled. But we tend to get a lot more adventurous when advising others. And that’s because we actually employ different mindsets when we make decisions for ourselves versus when we recommend decisions for others.

5 Indie Heroines Who Need To Get Their Shit Together | Tribeca
An interesting take on female characters in the "hero cycle" of undergoing a personal change due to the core conflict of their stories.

But all of these characters are young and white and generally have upper middle class privileges if not the attendant money.
Also, 4 of the 5 movies are from the 1990s.

New York lawmakers want to punish AirDropping uninvited dick pics — Quartz
It would be hard to police, but you can shield yourself by changing one setting on your phone.

Dickpics are stupid.
Allowing anyone to airdrop anything to you is stupid.
Making a law prohibiting this is stupid.
