Link Roundup: January 16, 2016

Did somebody say “links”?!

Politics

  • Hillary Clinton is botching her best chance to win — Discusses Hillary Clinton’s recent attacks (and proxy attacks) on Bernie Sanders and how they may be damaging her candidacy.
  • Hillary Clinton doesn’t trust you — Ezra Klein, who tends to be rather hit and miss, notes that Hillary Clinton doesn’t campaign the way she actually governs/administers, much to her detriment. I didn’t know much about her leadership style but it’s disappointing that she doesn’t show more of it while campaigning.

Social Justice

  • NYPD demands $36,000 “copying fee” for access to cops’ body cam footage — Apparently you can fight freedom of information requests with ridiculous charges.
  • 2016 — Zoe Quinn talks about her 2015, including what she’s been through and what she’s accomplished. She has her critics (to put it mildly) but how she has persevered through so much has always impressed me (while also horrifying me that the behavior she’s endured is so commonplace).

Economics

Film

  • I’m just not that into¬†Star Wars — Hey, I found the one guy who doesn’t like¬†Star Wars! Get him! But really, I am not a huge fan, myself. I like some of the movies OK, and especially some of the video games, but I’d hardly call myself a fan.

Science

  • Why are millions of starfish “melting”? — Something I didn’t know about until very recently. Seems starfish around the world are being killed in droves by a form of parvovirus, and it doesn’t appear there’s much we can do about it.
