Economics 101 – Why introductory economics courses continued to teach zombie ideas from before economics became an empirical discipline – What happens to the job market when the government raises the minimum wage? For decades, higher education in the United States has taught economics students to answer this question by reasoning from first principles. When the price of something rises, people tend to buy less of it. Therefore, if the price of labour rises, businesses will choose to ‘buy’ less of it – meaning they’ll hire fewer people. Students learn that a higher minimum wage means fewer jobs. But there’s another way to answer the question –> https://aeon.co/essays/what-should-econ-101-courses-teach-students-tod...

The Mysterious Spanish Humanoid Invasion of 1968 – One curious aspect of the UFO phenomenon is how many sightings seem to come in waves, with many witnesses coming forward in the same area within a short span of time, for whatever reasons.

Programming Prayer: The Woven Book of Hours (1886–87) – Touchstone in the history of computing, monument of city pride, pastiche of Gothic and Renaissance revivalisms with a dash of Art Nouveau — the Livre de Prières: Tissé d’après les enluminures des manuscrits du XIVe au XVIe siècle, produced in Lyon in the 1880s, is an object of many valences, a nodal point connecting several seemingly disparate legacies. As the title indicates, the book’s leaves are neither handwritten nor printed, but woven (tissé), then mounted onto heavy paper backings and bound.

“On This Desolate Island”: Sodomy Punish’d (1726) – One day, he was caught having relations with another man, an event whose details are largely lost to the historical record. While the other man was seemingly executed, Hasenbosch was marooned to punish him for his sodomy — a cluster of sexual acts that were prosecuted with increasing frequency and severity in both the Netherlands and England as the 1700s wore on. It was a pirate’s fate for a company man. They leave him with almost nothing: a cask of water, two buckets, an old frying pan, and a few other tools. He builds a tent on the beach and starts to explore –> https://publicdomainreview.org/collection/sodomy-punished/
