Дискуссия о формировании планет и других небесных тел получила новое развитие. Теперь исследователи полагают, что в молодой Солнечной системе астероиды и метеориты хотя бы отчасти состояли из липкой тёплой грязи, и именно благодаря этому они сохранили свой первоначальный состав без изменений.
The consensus in Iqaluit seems to be that everyone with a credit card has an Amazon Prime membership. That's because people can often find groceries cheaper online than in local stores, despite government food subsidy programs. "Amazon Prime has done more toward elevating the standard of living of my family than any territorial or federal program. Full stop. Period," a local principal, who declined to speak further, said on Facebook. With an annual fee of about $80, Amazon Prime members can get free and faster shipping. This is from Sara Frizzell, "Amazon Prime does more for northern food security than federal subsidies, say Iqaluit residents," CBC News, July 10, 2017. This reminds me of a line that George Stigler used in a famous article titled "The Intellectual and the Marketplace": Sears, Roebuck and Company and Montgomery Ward made a good deal of money in the process of improving our rural marketing structure, but I am convinced that they did more for the poor farmers of America than the sum total of the federal agricultural support programs of the last five decades.

The Irish fiction renaissance continues with a gothic collection of short stories that shock and fascinate in equal measureAs Leonard Cohen asked: you want it darker? How about a story about a couple kept as sex slaves in a farmhouse in Leitrim, their desperate antics livestreamed to an audience of perverts worldwide? Or a junkie who gets a beating and a shoehorn “scoopslide right in and up on over” his “stink tunnel”? A story narrated by a foetus? The tale of a paedophile who is enrolled on a “dynamic new domestic-environment therapy with 100 per cent effectiveness demonstrated in trials across twelve countries on three continents”, which involves him adopting his own boy robot that he can abuse in the comfort and privacy of his own home? Room Little Darker, June Caldwell’s debut collection, couldn’t get much blacker. It reads like boiling tar.As Irish fiction once again awakens to its true power and potential, Caldwell emerges as one of those giving the tradition a good old-fashioned shaking. (To name just a few others: Sara Baume, Lisa McInerney, Kevin Barry, Colin Barrett.) In the words of the narrator of “Dubstopia”, “Come out of charity, Come dance with me in Ireland, that cunt Yeats said in the book by their mattress. But he didn’t know fuck all about the skank or fiddlers like Carol, all thumbs and kettledrums, sucking off ghosts at the window in the Old Bank on Doyle’s Corner.” If you prefer your Irish fiction sweet, ponderous and full to the brim with twinkles and craic – horseman, pass by.

From all-nighters at the office to insensitive male coworkers, working mothers and mothers-to-be often describe the tech world as hostile to their needsSara Mauskopf was nine months pregnant and about to go on maternity leave, when her boss, the Postmates CEO Bastian Lehmann, mentioned her by name at an all-hands meeting: staff would no longer be able to use one of the company’s conference rooms, Lehmann said, because Mauskopf would need it pump breast milk when she returned to work. “I felt very called out and embarrassed,” recalled Mauskopf, who was the delivery startup’s director of product at the time. “It singled me out as the reason for the conversion and made me feel like I was taking something away from everyone.” Continue reading...
