The unintended consequences of being "tough on crime"

“We’re in this exciting moment where we’ve had 40 years of being ‘tough on crime,’ and we’ve finally come to recognize that it really hasn’t worked very well,” says sociologist Alice Goffman bluntly. “Scientists have shown in the past few years that the relationship between incarceration and crime is basically zip. The crime rate goes up and down, incarceration just continues to grow. It’s not a good way of fighting crime.”

What the Social Progress Index can reveal about your country

The term Gross Domestic Product is often talked about as if it were “handed down from god on tablets of stone.” But this concept was invented by an economist in the 1930s. We need a more effective measurement tool to match 21st century needs, says Michael Green: the Social Progress Index. With charm and wit, he shows how this tool measures societies across the three dimensions that actually matter. And reveals the dramatic reordering of nations that occurs when you use it.

It’s a soaring testament to the potential of human diversity.

In a rousing talk, Kish demonstrates how this works and asks us to let go of our fear of the “dark unknown.”

What happens when our computers get smarter than we are?

Artificial intelligence is getting smarter by leaps and bounds — within this century, research suggests, a computer AI could be as "smart" as a human being. And then, says Nick Bostrom, it will overtake us: "Machine intelligence is the last invention that humanity will ever need to make." A philosopher and technologist, Bostrom asks us to think hard about the world we're building right now, driven by thinking machines. Will our smart machines help to preserve humanity and our values — or will they have values of their own?

But what I’m really curious about… What’s your goal? What are you trying to achieve? I’m here with my goals, but obviously you have to achieve your goals. So if you can just tell me what your objectives are, we can start from there and see if we can mutually take care of them. If not, that’s fine too.”

William Gibson riffs on writing and the future

Well, in science fiction I think the classic advice from Robert Heinlein was, in order to be a writer you had to finish what you wrote, submit what you’d written for publication, and without waiting to see whether it was rejected or accepted, start writing something else, which you’d then finish. And when the first piece was rejected, you’d immediately submit it somewhere else. Heinlein said that if you simply kept doing that, you’d become by default a writer, and eventually a published one. I think that my version, my advice would be even simpler than that — although that’s really good advice, because if you skip any of Heinlein’s steps you’re not likely to become a published writer — but I think that good fiction is written by people who’ve read a lot of fiction. That seems to be the common denominator. If you think you want to be a writer but you don’t like reading, you should look at that, because there might be something going on. So I would recommend that people read a lot, and as broadly as possible, and then I would suggest that people write a lot. You have to have written a very good deal in order to become really good at it.

Ben & Jerry's gives a new name to ice cream flavor for gay marriage

The hippie-founded ice cream brand has long been an advocate for LGBT rights. In 1989, it became one of the first employers in the state to offer health insurance to same-sex domestic partners. When Vermont legalized gay marriage in 2009, it renamed its "Chubby Hubby" flavor "Hubby Hubby" to mark the occasion.

U.S. Manufacturing costs are almost as low as China’s, and that’s a very big deal

You don’t need to a Nobel Prize in economics to know that the fracking revolution has been good for the U.S. What’s not so well known is just how competitive cheap oil and gas has made American manufacturing. BCG, the Boston consultancy, estimates the average cost to manufacture goods in the U.S. is now only 5% higher than in China and is actually 10% to 20% lower than in major European economies. Even more striking: BCG projects that by 2018 it will be 2% to 3% cheaper to make stuff here than in China.

The focus of the update is a brand-new explore and a search update that make Instagram feel even more like a competitor to Twitter than ever before. The main explore view will now surface trending tags instead of simply showing a grid of photos. Tapping on one of those trending hashtags will show you the most popular images up top, followed by a grid of all the most recent images submitted with a particular tag.

The commercial cargo program was designed to accommodate loss of cargo vehicles."

Reading Is Forgetting by Tim Parks

Meanwhile, our reactions to a book on first reading are irrelevant, except in so far as they do or don’t encourage us to go back to the beginning and start again. But since this whole approach assumes that no book worth its salt will yield its best first time around and that we can’t know what might come up on further readings—an idea that is easy to sell to a young and inexperienced reader approaching Musil or Svevo or Kafka—the decision to reread is more or less taken for us by our teachers, or by critics. In short, our betters will tell us from their experience which books we should be reading—rereading, that is—since our first reading is hardly reading at all. Once the canon is established, then, it is unlikely to change, since who has time to check out the stuff that didn’t make it? If, that is, on Flaubert’s recommendation, my half dozen books are still yielding new depths, why should I look elsewhere?

A T-Cell Immunotherapy Cure for Cancer | MIT Technology Review

The T-cell therapies are the most radical of several new approaches that recruit the immune system to attack cancers. An old idea that once looked like a dead end, immunotherapy has roared back with stunning results in the last four years. Newly marketed drugs called checkpoint inhibitors are curing a small percentage of skin and lung cancers, once hopeless cases. More than 60,000 people have been treated with these drugs, which are sold by Merck and Bristol-Myers Squibb. The treatments work by removing molecular brakes that normally keep the body’s T cells from seeing cancer as an enemy, and they have helped demonstrate that the immune system is capable of destroying cancer. Juno’s technology for engineering the DNA of T cells to guide their activity is at an earlier, more experimental stage. At the time of its IPO, Juno offered data on just 61 patients with leukemia or lymphoma.

Warner Bros. scraps Dukes of Hazzard car toys over Confederate flag controversy

As recently as 2012  Warner Bros. quashed rumors that it was planning to remove the Confederate flag from toy versions of the General Lee. "We were not and are not planning to change design of the General Lee on merchandise," the company said at the time, after a Tomy sales representative reportedly indicated production would cease in 2013. Ben Jones, the actor who portrayed Cooter in the 1970s Dukes of Hazzard TV show and an ex-Democratic congressman, responded to the rumors in a press release. "Some unnamed genius at the company feels that the flag is ‘offensive to some' and therefore it has no business on a classic TV comedy about a bunch of good ol' boys and girls in the Southern mountains," he wrote. "This is a new level of ‘P.C.' idiocy. I don't know about you, but I am tired of being insulted by morons."

From High School Calculus Straight To A Job At IBM: Meet The First Graduates Of P-TECH

Davis, P-TECH’s principal, is unapologetic about the model’s de-emphasis of four-year college. "The most pushback that we do get is from the education people who are clueless about the reality, because they haven’t gone beyond their own social circle," he says. He is more sympathetic to pushback from parents. "The narrative that they have been told is, you’re going to leave high school and you’re going to go to college, you’re going to use extracurriculars to earn scholarships. The pushback comes from fear—the fear of not knowing how to get there, the fear of wanting their children to have better lives, that tension that comes from, wow, we’ve signed up for something new, and we didn’t know what we were getting into. We deal with all sorts of tensions between dreams, expectations, and then the outcomes, the reality."

AI, Robotics, and the Future of Jobs

Hal Varian , chief economist for Google, envisions a future with fewer ‘jobs’ but a more equitable distribution of labor and leisure time. “If ‘displace more jobs’ means ‘eliminate dull, repetitive, and unpleasant work,’ the answer would be yes. How unhappy are you that your dishwasher has replaced washing dishes by hand, your washing machine has displaced washing clothes by hand, or your vacuum cleaner has replaced hand cleaning? My guess is this ‘job displacement’ has been very welcome, as will the ‘job displacement’ that will occur over the next 10 years. The work week has fallen from 70 hours a week to about 37 hours now, and I expect that it will continue to fall. This is a good thing. Everyone wants more jobs and less work. Robots of various forms will result in less work, but the conventional work week will decrease, so there will be the same number of jobs (adjusted for demographics, of course). This is what has been going on for the last 300 years so I see no reason that it will stop in the decade.”

10 Tips to Help You Get the Most Out of Windows 10

1. Customize the Start Menu Windows 10's reprise of the Start menu, which dates 20 years back to Windows 95, has been a much-applauded feature of Microsoft's next operating system. But it's not a simple return to the old Windows XP-style Start menu. Instead, Windows 10 combines the tiles of Windows 8's modern, touch-friendly user interface with the earlier metaphor. Maybe you want more tiles, maybe fewer or none. You can have the new Start menu your way: Simply click and hold the cursor on the edge of the Start box and drag it to the size you want. As with Windows 8, you can also pin any applications—including traditional desktop ones—to tiles. If you tap All Apps, you'll see a small tile for every single program on the computer, and you can pin any with a right-click option.
