I Should Be Able to Mute America
The Return of Industrial Warfare | Royal United Services Institute
there’s a lot to unpack in this article. though, i’m not quite sure how i ran across it. the only plus side to rampant gun ownership in this country is the fact that there’s a robust market for small arms ammunition which might help ramp up production in wartime. the rest of this reads like a case study in supply chain concerns.
Record-Breaking Voyager Spacecraft Begin to Power Down - Scientific American
read this in the actual physical paper format this weekend. it’s impressive to think of what’s been done with such meager resources and how durable these probes have proven to be.

i’m not sure that they actually got to the why of it all, but they do outline a few of the challenges associated with building out. their case studies are pretty solid and i think representative of a lot of the geography in this country.

Evaluating 2 Tech Antitrust Bills To Restore Competition Online - Center for American Progress
definitely worth a read. both bills seem to move things in reasonable directions. however, there does seem to be a hitch in terms of the handling of encryption (i.e.: real crypto) there’s an interesting summary of the encryption related issues by bruce schneier.
DOBBS, STATE HEALTH OFFICER OF THE MISSISSIPPI DEPARTMENT OF HEALTH, ET AL. v. JACKSON WOMEN’S HEALTH ORGANIZATION ET AL.
it’s worth taking the time to sit down and work your way through the writing hrere. i’m not wired for legal thinking and i’m clearly, not a lawyer, but the majority opinion seems like papering over just wanting to overturn things here.
the dissenting opinion (starting on page 148) is a very biting takedown of the previous 140-odd pages and starkly points out the intellectual inconsistencies therein. it’s great reading.
