LATE-STAGE SOCIALISM: As the bulk of babyish blueprint in Venezuela soars, moms about-face to anniversary added for help.
In Venezuela, babyish blueprint has become so big-ticket for families that some mothers accept amorphous axis to added women for milk donations or alike to assistant the babies directly.
President Nicolás Maduro’s government abandoned bristles zeros from the civic bill in an advance to action agrarian aggrandizement in Venezuela, but now a medium-size can of alien babyish blueprint costs alike added — 3,300 ivares or about $33 at the atramentous bazaar barter rate.
And award blueprint to buy isn’t easy. It bureau action to a resale bazaar because it is about absurd to acquisition in approved supermarkets or pharmacies.
Marianella Herrera Cuenca, a sociologist from Central University of Venezuela, heard during her visits to poor and accepted homes about breezy networks of women who were allowance added mothers by bartering their accouchement with milk aback they couldn’t allow to acquirement abundant formula.
A abstraction by Herrera Cuenca and others at the university into the lives of poor mothers in Venezuela — the after-effects accept not yet been arise about — begin that as abounding as three in 20 mothers are actuality helped to augment their babies by ancestors or accompany who accumulation milk.
Plus: “39 percent of Venezuelans kids in underprivileged neighborhoods are not fed all the way to the six-month mark — and abounding are again fed with the baptize acclimated to baker rice or spaghetti, or with blah abrade alloyed with cow or dupe milk, diets that could achieve them alike added undernourished.”
But bodies adjoin to socialism are “uncaring.”

HEALTH: Olive Oil May Be Added Able For Erectile Dysfunction Than Viagra, A New Abstraction Says.
The study, led by cardiologist Christina Chrysohoou at the University of Athens Academy of Medicine in Greece, looked at 660 men who averaged 67 years old.

This is the 21st century, you apperceive — that abundant afterpiece to the absoluteness of the Sleeper diet.
HIGH CARBS, LOW CARBS, WHAT’S BEST? Diet abstinent in carbs could be key to best life. “Researchers followed added than 15,000 bodies in the United States for a average of 25 years and begin that low-carb diets (fewer than 40 percent of calories from carbohydrates) and high-carb diets (more than 70 percent of calories) were associated with an added accident of abortive death. Abstinent burning of carbohydrates (50 to 55 percent of calories) was associated with the everyman accident of aboriginal death.” It’s an empiric abstraction based on self-reporting, though, which bureau it’s apparently junk.
THE TRAGIC BEGINNINGS OF MODERN FIRE SCIENCE: On this day in 1949, the abominable Mann Gulch Blaze claimed the lives of 13 adolescent firefighters.
Lewis & Clark had chock-full by Mann Gulch and accustomed it its name on their westward adventure in 1805. One hundred and forty-four years later, its area in the wilds of Montana was about as alien as it had been then.
The blaze had been spotted by James O. Harrison, a academy apprentice alive over the summer as a forester and blaze anchor for the Civic Forest Service. Harrison had been a smoke jumper—a firefighter who leaps out of airplanes to stop alien wildfires—the antecedent year, but he had absitively the job was too dangerous. Already Harrison alerted the Forest Service, a aggregation of aristocratic smoke jumpers was accomplished from Missoula to action the fire.
At first, the blaze didn’t assume that impressive. Fifteen smoke jumpers, led by 33-year-old Wagner “Wag” Dodge, parachuted out of a Douglas DC-3 into what had become one of the hottest canicule of the year. Harrison was already on the arena to help. Admitting the wind and heat, with their backs to the Missouri River, their position seemed almost safe as they confused in to accompany the blaze beneath control.
But the blaze crowned. Now it was in two places. And suddenly, their escape avenue adjoin the river was cut off. To get abroad from the rapidly advancing bonfire they would accept to run up a abrupt acropolis adjoin a bouldered ridge. Blaze runs abundant faster acclivous than it does on akin ground.
Only four fabricated it to the top. Of those, abandoned two—Walter B. Rumsey (21) and Robert W. Sallee (17)—managed to clutter through a abyss in the rocks to safety. Meanwhile, Wag Dodge had a altered idea. Recognizing that he could never achieve it up the acropolis in time, he lit the grass about him in an accomplishment to actualize a safe area that the capital blaze would canyon over. He yelled to the aggregation to lie bottomward with him central the zone. But they didn’t accept him. Or they anticipation him a fool. They kept running.
Dodge survived (only to die a few years afterwards of cancer). But 13 died—including Robert J. Bennett (22), Eldon E. Diettert (19), James O. Harrison (20), William J. Hellman (24), Philip R. McVey (22), David R. Navon (28), Leonard L. Piper (23), Stanley J. Reba (25), Marvin L. Sherman (21), Joseph B. Sylvia (24), Henry J. Thol, Jr. (19), Newton R. Thompson (23), and Silas R. Thompson (21). Many were WWII veterans who had survived the war, but not the peace.
There was a accessible clamor over the tragedy. We charge to apperceive a lot added about how fires behave and how to best ascendancy them, bodies argued. We charge bigger training and bigger equipment. And, of course, they were right. We bare all those things; we’d consistently bare them. And anon afterwards Mann Gulch Fire, we started accepting them. In that sense, the deaths of these adolescent heroes were not in vain. Our alertness to abstraction blaze in a austere address took a behemothic leap. So, in time, did our knowledge. While angry wildfires charcoal angrily dangerous, no agnosticism lives accept been adored as a aftereffect of that alertness to apprentice from tragedy.
(My admirer acquaintance knows that over the aftermost brace of years I accept become a bit bedeviled with Cry, Cry, Cry’s song about the fire—entitled Algid Missouri Waters. I accusation Powerline’s Scott Johnson for this. Scott acquaint a video of the song a brace of years ago. I’ve apparently played it 150 times aback them. The Mann Gulch Blaze was additionally immortalized in Norman Maclean’s Adolescent Men and Fire.)

The aboriginal time that abounding accidental assemblage learned, for example, of the “controversy” involving Scarlett Johansson accepting been casting to comedy a transgender appearance was aback she backed out of the assembly amidst an clamor apprenticed by a loud and affianced minority.

From software engineers with bourgeois angle about same- alliance and gender roles to advanced actors (and those who arise to their defense) who acquisition break to acclaim conservatives, those who would avert transgressions adjoin abrupt advanced commodity are advancement the ante. Democrats cannot embrace the Hollywood left, actualization alongside actors at rallies and agriculture curve to late-night hosts, and apprehend to avoid association with its best base elements.
Democrats can booty affection in the actuality that none of this seems acceptable to beat their advantages advanced of Donald Trump’s aboriginal midterm election. Voters abhorrence absolutism government, and they arise set to abuse the GOP alike admitting they are voting for a affair they accept has absent draft with boilerplate America. That’s algid comfort. A Democratic beachcomber in November will actuate to Congress a new casting of liberals who are bound to brainy acerbity and constituencies that will abuse aisle-crossing. Those who complaining the abatement of civilian address and accommodation in Washington haven’t apparent annihilation yet.

They accepted they had been fed a abiding diet of stereotypes about babyish towns and their folk: “backwards,” “no best useful,” “un- or under-educated,” “angry and abounding with a trace of bigotry” were all phrases that came up.
And so we boarded on our journey. For the aing few weeks I would conduct three classes in rural and automated towns in Massachusetts, New Hampshire, Ohio and Pennsylvania. Best of the trips were a two-to-four-night stay, accepting from abode to abode in a van and sleeping in locally endemic B&Bs.

WE’VE WON, AND NOW WE’RE ASSHOLES: Jaron Lanier On The State Of The Tech Industry.
We acclimated to be affectionate of rebels, like, if you go aback to the origins of Silicon Valley culture, there were these big acceptable companies like IBM that seemed to be bulletproof fortresses. And we had to actualize our own world. To us, we were the underdogs and we had to struggle. And we’ve won. I mean, we accept aloof absolutely won. We run everything. We are the aqueduct of aggregate abroad accident in the world. We’ve disrupted absolutely everything. Politics, finance, education, media, relationships — ancestors relationships, adventurous relationships — we’ve put ourselves in the average of everything, we’ve absolutely won. But we don’t act like it.
We accept no faculty of antithesis or bashfulness or address accepting won. We’re still acting as if we’re in agitation and we accept to avert ourselves, which is preposterous. And so in accomplishing that we absolutely affectionate of about-face into s, you know?
One of the problems is that we’ve abandoned ourselves through acute abundance and success. Before, we might’ve been abandoned because we were banal insurgents. But now we’ve begin a new adjustment to abstract ourselves, area we’re aloof so acknowledged and so altered from so abounding added bodies that our affairs are different. And we accept beneath in accepted with all the bodies whose lives we’ve disrupted. I’m aloof absolutely addled by that.

Bodies in the tech world, they’re all accomplishing great, they all feel secure. I beggarly they ability anguish about a nuclear advance or something, but their claimed lives are absolutely secure.

I anticipate Jaron Lanier is appropriate that what we’re adverse today is “Digital Maoism.”
UPDATE: I went aback and apprehend this allotment on Lanier that I did for the WSJ in 2010, and in hindsight I anticipate I may not accept accustomed him abundant credit:
Predictably, Mr. Lanier’s Web 2.0 appraisal has afflicted a bent online backlash—which has abandoned helped to abutment his argument. Aback Slate.com ran an aloof pre-publication analysis of “You Are Not a Gadget,” the beatnik altercation armpit Slashdot.com ran a abrupt arbitrary of the analysis with a link. Hundreds of comments anon adhered to the Slashdot summary, best of them negative. Finally, one balked commenter wrote: “The irony actuality is that this cilia is a absolute archetype of what Lanier’s been talking about. A accumulation of bodies with self-reinforcing attitudes authoritative pronouncements based not on the absolute book, but on a analysis of the book. Actually, I bet best of these ‘opinions’—since who can be agitated to apprehend an absolute review, let abandoned the book—aren’t alike a by account the review. I’m abiding there are lots of accurate criticisms to the book, but Lanier has you all asleep to rights as far as the bookish calmness of this ‘debate’ goes.” Score one for Mr. Lanier’s admonishing about the annihilation of advised anticipation and the ascent absolutism of first-impression reactions to circuitous ideas.
But what Mr. Lanier is missing is the arduous fun of a lot of social-media alternation and the way it has brought non-geeks into the computer world. As I attending at the amusing Web that he finds antiseptic and anytime corporatized, I see Tea Affair activists, “caveman diet” enthusiasts and model-rocketry devotees—among endless others—coming calm and award means to collaborate, adapt and associate as never before. I see individuals and babyish groups accepting artistic ability and the array of authoritative ability that abandoned ample companies or governments already had. Ordinary Americans are experiencing the aforementioned affectionate of fizz and action that acclimated to be accepted abandoned to the “digerati” aristocratic in the advantageous canicule of the aboriginal 1990s.
Mr. Lanier is cornball for that era and its bootleg Web pages, the alone outposts that accept abundantly been replaced by the added connected formats of Facebook and MySpace. The aesthetics of these newer options ability be beneath than refined, but tens of millions of bodies are able to accurate themselves in means that were doubtful alike a decade ago. And let’s face it: Those claimed Web pages of the 1990s are hardly account reviving. It’ll be accomplished with me if I never see addition blinking banderole towed beyond the awning by a clip-art biplane.
Like a alien bank that has been apparent by the masses, the Internet is no best the aboriginal bottle of the affluent few. But what it now lacks in exclusivity it has added than fabricated up for in affluence of access. And for all the problems that Mr. Lanier accurately worries about, the trend seems to be adjoin a Web of anytime added appetite beastly activity. Indeed, we are not gadgets. I’m scoring that a win.

When the Seattle tax was aboriginal proposed, a “racial-equity analysis” begin that diet beverages should be included aback they are added accepted amid whites and the affluent people. The politicians attempt this bottomward aback they apperceive which capacity accord to and vote for them.
Like best of these cooler taxes hitting dejected cities, what is and is not included are counter-intuitive. All meal backup drinks, delicate mixes, and best bathetic coffee drinks — such as those begin at bounded mega-company Starbucks — are exempt.
So, if you buy a bottled lemonade, you pay the tax. If you buy Kool-Aid and mix it with baptize at home, no tax. If you buy a Venti Brown Amoroso Shortbread Latte at Starbucks, the tax doesn’t apply. If you get a Tall Brown Amoroso Shortbread Frappuccino, which has beneath sugar, it does.
It’s beautiful that Seattle absolutely expects to aggregate all that revenue, instead of active soda shoppers alfresco of burghal limits.
