<<As any trader will tell you, if you are stuck lower, you want volatility, uncertainty. No matter how it comes. Put another way. Your downside is flat, your upside isn’t. Break the system.
The elites loathe volatility. Because, the upside is limited, but the downside isn’t. In option language, they are in the money.

To put it in very non-geeky language: A two-tiered system has one set of people who want to keep the system, and another that doesn’t. Each one is voting for their own best interests. (Yes, there are always altruistic people. But…..)>>

Once again, an excellent piece from Matt Taibbi. As a life-long Democrat, this quote very much resonated with me.

...down the road, someone will have to address the problem of a Democratic Party structure that effectively had no internal advocates for a full 43 percent of its voters. As we've seen with the Trump episode on the other side, people don't much like having to fight against the party claiming to represent them.

Fwiw, the comment thread on the original post is interesting too.

A rather thoughtful analysis of something that's been happening in the US lately. The speeches at the DNC have been on themes of family values, patriotism, and American exceptionalism – traditionally Republican themes, but now (with that party's candidate having rejected all of these fairly soundly) up for grabs. The result is something rather interesting, and could have deep effects on politics down the line. This may be a key moment in the realignment of American political parties.

Worth the read, and a ponder.___Fwiw, the comment thread on the original post is interesting too.

In December, documentary photographer Carol Highsmith received a letter from Getty Images accusing her of copyright infringement for featuring one of her own photographs on her own website. It demanded payment of $120. This was how Highsmith came to learn that stock photo agencies Getty and Alamy had been sending similar threat letters and charging fees to users of her images, which she had donated to the Library of Congress for use by the general public at no charge.

Now, Highsmith has filed a $1 billion copyright infringement suit against both Alamy and Getty for “gross misuse” of 18,755 of her photographs. “The defendants [Getty Images] have apparently misappropriated Ms. Highsmith’s generous gift to the American people,” the complaint reads. “[They] are not only unlawfully charging licensing fees … but are falsely and fraudulently holding themselves out as the exclusive copyright owner.” According to the lawsuit, Getty and Alamy, on their websites, have been selling licenses for thousands of Highsmith’s photographs, many without her name attached to them and stamped with “false watermarks.”

Since 1988, Highsmith has been donating tens of thousands of photographs of people and places in the United States to the Library of Congress, making them free for public use. The institution calls the donation “one of the greatest acts of generosity in the history of the Library.” The Carol M. Highsmith Collection is featured in the library’s Prints & Photographs Division, alongside the likes of Dorothea Lange’s Dust Bowl and Depression photographs.___via +Cara Evangelista

Numerous good points here, in my opinion.

Among them: supporting and voting for don't have to be the same thing and people that supported Sanders didn't do it for him but because he was promoting ideas with which they agree.

I'm wondering why the Democratic convention needs to be on a Monday-Wednesday. If a Friday night or along side of a major sporting event was good enough for the Democratic debates, shouldn't it be good enough for the convention too?

Title from story: Wasserman Schultz to Have a New Role in Clinton Campaign

The old role, of course, was working to get Clinton elected from within the DNC.

Hillary Clinton is thanking her “longtime friend” Debbie Wasserman Schultz after the Florida congresswoman’s decision to step down as chair of the Democratic National Committee. Clinton says that Wasserman Schultz will serve as honorary chair of her campaign’s 50-state program to help elect Democrats around the country.

The presumptive Democratic presidential nominee says she looks forward to campaigning with Wasserman Schultz in Florida “and helping her re-election bid."___Title from story: Wasserman Schultz to Have a New Role in Clinton Campaign

If the officer was trying to protect Kinsey from the other man, why was Kinsey put in handcuffs after he was shot? And, considering the other man with Austism also didn't have a weapon, it still seems like criminal incompetence for the officer to (try to) shoot him. In either case, it seems like our nation's police officers aren't getting the training they need.

Very cool. I want him to do a VW Type II engine!

Eric Harrell 3D prints an amazing and functional mini Subaru flat-four engine #3DPrinting #3DThursday
https://blog.adafruit.com/2016/07/21/eric-harrell-3d-prints-an-amazing-and-functional-mini-subaru-flat-four-engine-3dprinting-3dthursday/

If you’re a guy, chances are you’ve probably opened the hood of your car, poked around for a bit and then thought “Yep, that’s an engine”. While most men are fascinated by engines, unfortunately many of us can do little more than check the oil. But if you’re eager to learn more, you can now do so at home without taking your own car apart. Mechanical engineer Eric Harrell has just shared a 3D printable 35-percent scale model of a Subaru’s EJ20 flat-four engine that is fully functional, though obviously not a real engine. A perfect 3D printing project that will teach you all about how engines actually function.

If this project sounds familiar, that’s because this isn’t actually Harrell’s first 3D printed engine. The mechanical engineer, who goes by ERICTHEPOOLBOY online, has previously shared numerous fantastic car-related 3D printing projects, including this working 3D printed replica of a Toyota 4 Cylinder Engine 22RE back in January. Most importantly, like that Toyota replica, this Subaru engine is not an actual engine. “It’s fully functional as in all parts move as intended in the real thing. Do not confuse it with a real engine, as this is not,” Harrell says.

Something interesting that we can finally talk about: the AIs are controlling their own datacenters, and it knocks about 15% off our power usage. More specifically, we designed a deep learning system to control things like cooling fans, windows, and other things related to power and cooling, with the objective of minimizing power needs. It turned out that this sort of system reliably outperformed manual control by a lot - enough that we've gradually transitioned datacenters to fully automatic operation.

This is one of those examples of how machine learning can be really useful; at any given instant, its decisions may be roughly as good as a human's would be, but it can make those decisions every few milliseconds and continually adjust things in a way a person couldn't.

Why artificial sweeteners can increase appetite

Studies in both animals and humans have suggested that consuming artificial sweeteners can make you feel hungry and actually eat more. A comprehensive new study co-led by the University of Sydney has revealed for the first time why this response occurs. Published today in the prestigious journal Cell Metabolism, the results shed light on the effects of artificial sweeteners on the brain in regulating appetite and in altering taste perceptions. Researchers from the University of Sydney's Charles Perkins Centre and the Garvan Institute of Medical Research have identified a new system in the brain that senses and integrates the sweetness and energy content of food.

"After chronic exposure to a diet that contained the artificial sweetener sucralose, we saw that animals began eating a lot more," said lead researcher Associate Professor Greg Neely from the University of Sydney's Faculty of Science. "Through systematic investigation of this effect, we found that inside the brain's reward centres, sweet sensation is integrated with energy content. When sweetness versus energy is out of balance for a period of time, the brain recalibrates and increases total calories consumed."___
