The Big Data of Ice, Rocks, Soils, and Sediments
"As Jennifer Baird and Lesley McFadyen argue, archaeology’s textual archive “exists as a site of translation between the material past encountered during excavation and the production of archaeological knowledge as an intellectual exercise.” Here the curators and managers of geoscientific collections could learn from manuscript and rare book librarians and audio-visual archivists, who have long acknowledged the importance of their collections’ materiality."

The Twin Insurgency - The American Interest
"Instead of being in revolt against a particular political regime with the goal of building better government, they aim instead to cripple their hosts states in order to gain de facto zones of private autonomy that can enable individual or corporate enrichment. They are thus parasitic in a very specific sense: They free ride on the institutional legacy of social modernism so as to avoid costs to their businesses."

In search of nuance with Maggie Nelson
"legions of people who do a lot of Twitter or snarky Facebook posts have been honing the skill of vomiting into their heads, trying to, as writers, have the last word or the "touché." When, in fact, trying to have a last word or "touché" comment is not the same skill set that you would have to have in order to keep a conversation going. So I think in some ways, people have to pay attention to what skill sets they are honing because the internet makes a fantasy land where we all would love to have the last word, or we all would love to get out of a high stakes conflicted communication with a kind of snap or a zing, but that's not how ongoing relationships live."

The full story on how the Viking uniforms came to Minnesota
We know all of this because Hubenthal saved his original sketches of the uniform and logo, had them framed, and hung them on his office wall for many years. On the back of the frame he inscribed a note: "I designed the [Vikings'] uniform, helmet, and trademark logo at the request of Bert Rose, the first general manager of the new franchise, and Norm Van Brocklin, their first coach. I had known them when they were with the L.A. Rams. Rose was a U. of Washington grad, hence the purple and gold colors."


Oh man, those sketches...

The German Amateurs Who Discovered ‘Insect Armageddon’ - The New York Times
The insect populations they tested had declined by more than 75 percent over the last three decades, explaining why, these days, car trippers no longer need to clean bugs from the windshield.

Lost in the flurry was the source of the news — the obscure, volunteer-run Entomological Society Krefeld, tucked away in western Germany near the Dutch border.

On Reading and Teaching, but Not Loving, Jane Austen - The Atlantic
“No matter how sparkling the wit of Austen and her characters, no matter the pleasure of the familiar texts, I want to spend my time and energy elsewhere, in another historical Britain, with authors like Maria Edgeworth, Hannah More, and Amelia Opie who grappled directly with the more pressing social issues of their time—not because I agree with or love the stories they tell, but because those stories show the fuller range of British culture in the 1800s.”

Dystopia in “The Good Place” | The New Yorker
If “Parks” was a liberal fantasia, “The Good Place” is a dystopian mindfork: it’s a comedy about the quest to be moral even when the truth gets bent, bullies thrive, and sadism triumphs.

The Nationalist's Delusion - The Atlantic
“The specific dissonance of Trumpism—advocacy for discriminatory, even cruel, policies combined with vehement denials that such policies are racially motivated—provides the emotional core of its appeal. It is the most recent manifestation of a contradiction as old as the United States, a society founded by slaveholders on the principle that all men are created equal.”

All This Blood and Love
We leave home and return to it. We re-create approximations of it from memory or imagination. We learn and then learn more. The way I was taught, Thanksgiving was all so simple and so lovely in its aims—food and gratitude, a feast to celebrate the bounty of the harvest. It wasn’t until much later that I learned how much more complicated it is, and the part we play in that history. It’s hard to look and necessary to look, to know ourselves and know the world, to know that a thieving took place, and a smoothing of the surface of the story. Look, and look harder, to better reckon with who we are and what we come from, and to mourn what’s been taken by violence or time.

During these feast days, dare the precipice. Look out and in, deep as you can. As you gather around a table to celebrate the bounty of the harvest, let things be messy and strange and complicated. How strange it is, to exist within, to belong, and how alienating, to be inside and outside at the same time, part of something and separate. How painful, how lucky, all this blood and love. A plate passed across space, a laugh, an easy or uneasy acknowledgment: here we are. For now, here we all are. And that is plenty.

date - Why does man print "gimme gimme gimme" at 00:30? - Unix & Linux Stack Exchange
Pretty much the whole story is in the commit. The maintainer of man is a good friend of mine, and one day six years ago I jokingly said to him that if you invoke man after midnight it should print "gimme gimme gimme", because of the Abba song called "Gimme gimme gimme a man after midnight"
