Harry stopped hating Draco Malfoy on Bring Your Kids to Work Day. (Not huge on throwing Ginny under the bus, but LOVE HYPATIA, AHAHAHA, WHY DON'T MORE PEOPLE GIVE DRACO A RIDICULOUS DAUGHTER.)

How to Make a WordPress Options Page (Without the Settings API)
Creating an admin menu page with working settings has three main steps:

1. Creating a page in the admin area.
2. Writing the page contents.
3. Within the page contents, creating a working form that will save the settings you wish to change.

Where We’re Dodging the Settings API

Step 3 is the one that usually requires the Settings API. However, you can accomplish the same goal by creating a simple, old-school-PHP-style Options Page in the WordPress backend, and avoid using the Settings API altogether.

And while the community, the Codex, and most of your peers will tell you you’re doing it wrong, this does work, and it cuts down on the incidental complexity (that is, the poor API design) that travels along with the Settings API.

APOD: 2017 July 26 - The Milky Way over Monument Valley
You don't have to be at Monument Valley to see the Milky Way arc across the sky like this -- but it helps. Only at Monument Valley USA would you see a picturesque foreground that includes these iconic rock peaks called buttes. Buttes are composed of hard rock left behind after water has eroded away the surrounding soft rock. In the featured image taken in 2012, the closest butte on the left and the butte to its right are known as the Mittens, while Merrick Butte can be seen farther to the right. Green airglow fans up from the horizon. High overhead stretches a band of diffuse light that is the central disk of our spiral Milky Way Galaxy. The band of the Milky Way can be spotted by almost anyone on almost any clear night when far enough from a city and surrounding bright lights, but a sensitive digital camera is needed to capture these colors in a dark night sky. via NASA

What happens when you take a princess, give her some friends, and set her loose on the most exclusive school in the Fire Nation?
Princess Azula's time at the Royal Fire Academy for Girls goes... pretty much exactly as you would expect.

How long until another Industrial Revolution would have taken place? - Marginal REVOLUTION
"The “special” thing about the British IR is that it overturned Malthusian assumptions, but from the point of view of understanding how the inputs related to the outputs, and how so many new, complex innovations were possible all at once, that is arguably of secondary import. Study Monteverdi, not coal!"

I Don’t Want to Watch Slavery Fan Fiction - The New York Times
When I first read about “Confederate,” however, I felt exhausted, simply because I have long been exhausted by slavery narratives. That’s a personal preference, not a metric by which art should or should not be created. There are works that do capture my interest, that make me think, that remind me of why there are still stories from that era to be told. Octavia E. Butler’s “Kindred” and Colson Whitehead’s “The Underground Railroad” come to mind. It is probably no accident that these are novels by black writers who found a way to reimagine history in speculative fiction without making slavery into an intellectual exercise rather than plainly showing it as the grossly oppressive institution it was.
