Things Worth Reading (2/16/17)

Play

Anyway, now let’s get to this week’s stories:

Sleep-Deprived Judges Dole Our Harsher Punishments (Harvard Business)
Turns out, justice is often dependent on a good night’s sleep from those exacting the punishments.

McDonalds reinvents the straw (FastCo Design)
Coming to a modern art museum near you, McDonalds new milkshake straw?

10 Stubborn Food Myths That Won’t Die (Lifehacker)
This is an older story that appeared on my radar, but still kinda interesting about the sort of myths that we harbor in the kitchen.

Science Fairs Aren’t So Fair (The Atlantic)
I think any kid that’s participated in a science fair, probably already knew this.

The Nerdy Artisanal Charm of Hand-Drawn Infographics (Wired)
If you’ve spent any time on Tumblr, you know this already. But nonetheless…

Video: In Istanbul, Cats are King (Wall Street Journal)
Soon to be the subject of a documentary, these Istanbul stray cats rule the roost.

Music: This Chance The Rapper cover of a Drake song “No Ways” is pretty great.

Reading: I’m half slogging through Mark Manson’s “The Subtle Art of Not Giving a F*ck: A Counterintuitive Approach to Living a Good Life” via Audible, but I can already tell that I’m not going to be really able to get into it and it’ll be a return for me. I can’t recommend it.

You can send me a book recommendation, I would like to add it to my list.

If you want to subscribe to my podcast where I do this audio versions, you can do that via iTunes or Stitcher to whatever podcast app you use (or just search my name. It’ll come up.)
