Opinion | The Children of Flint Were Not ‘Poisoned’ - The New York Times
Moving from evaluating percentages to examining actual blood lead levels in children, we found that levels did increase after the water switched over in 2014, but only by a modest 0.11 micrograms per deciliter. A similar increase of 0.12 micrograms per deciliter occurred randomly in 2010-11. It is not possible, statistically speaking, to distinguish the increase that occurred at the height of the contamination crisis from other random variations over the previous decade.

Zucked by Roger McNamee — anti-social network
January 4, 2019 | Financial Times | Hannah Kuchler.

n Zucked, McNamee describes his evolution into one of the loudest voices calling for regulation of Facebook, after a lifetime as a “technology optimist” and a capitalist convinced markets could settle their own problems. The 62-year-old is part of the old guard of Silicon Valley, investing in companies including Electronic Arts, the video game company, and Palm, the maker of the early handheld devices. But he rebelled against the Valley’s code of silence, to become a key leader in a campaign against Facebook.

His book is the first narrative tale of Facebook’s unravelling over the past two years. McNamee tells the inside story of the campaign in which he allied with former Google design ethicist Tristan Harris and lobbied the politicians who eventually called Zuckerberg to testify in front of Congress in April 2018.

Without McNamee and Harris, would Washington have woken up to the severity of the social network’s problems — or believed they could do anything about it? Zucked lands just as the Democrats take over the House of Representatives, making US regulation more likely — although nowhere near inevitable.

Does America really want effective drug regulation in racing?
"The important point to remember is that, when the RMTC makes recommendations for the adoption of specific model rules by ARCI, and ARCI then adopts a model rule, ARCI has no authority over state legislatures as to how that model rule might be amended or changed in the state legislative process. By definition, this process can result in the lack of uniformity among states for the same model rule. So how much progress has been made on NUMP? Unfortunately for ARCI, the RMTC has been tracking the adoption of the 500 pages of model rules and their adoption in the ARCI Thoroughbred racing state jurisdictions. Racing jurisdictions have allegedly been working on achieving uniformity for over a decade. NUMP was created in 2012, and there is no true industry medication uniformity in sight."

California solar mandate to make housing and electricity even more expensive
The difference is made up with subsidies and higher utility rates for other rate-payers without solar panels.  Even worse, reliance on unreliable wind and solar energy requires backup conventional (most natural gas) power generators, actually increasing the costs and rate base of utilities, and therefore prices for consumers and profits for the utilities.  It is the "perfect scam."
