The Roundup #56

I’ve spent the weekend reorganizing the furniture in my house so that it works a little better and feels new and fresh, enjoying the new OK Go music video, and generally avoiding the post-truth era as much as possible.

As such, this week’s roundup is rather scant. Here goes. Enjoy!

From the Economist (just because):

From The New York Times:

From JSTOR:
