Title: Running thread: Quality Long-form Journalism
Post by: bayonetbrant on October 19, 2015, 08:15:55 AM
I'm opening this thread to share general links for excellent long-form journalism.  There's plenty of it out there, and I'll add a few as I go from my personal archives...

All about how the underdog started running circles around the big dog when the big dog lost sight of what mattered and started taking their 'bigness' for granted as the inertial force that would carry the day just by showing up.  Kinda like SBNation and Bleacher Report and The Ringer are doing to ESPN now.

How to buy college football players

http://www.sbnation.com/college-football/2014/4/10/5594348/college-football-bag-man-interview


The best quote - my emphasis

Quote
Remember, your job as a bag man isn't to hide the benefit. It's to hide the proof. In a region as passionate about college football as the American South, there's no real moral outrage when new cars or clothes or jobs for relatives appear.

"We can only get away with whatever's considered reasonable by the majority of the folks in our society. That's why it's different in the SEC. Maybe that's why we're able to be more active in what we do. Because no one ever looks at the car or the jewelry and says, 'How did you get that, poor football player?' They say, 'How did they get you that and not get caught, poor football player?'"

That article was a pretty big topic on the local sports talk when it came out a couple years ago.  As long as I've lived here there's been allegations of just those things happening.  The most famous was how much Auburn paid Cam Newton to attend.  In the grand scheme, I could care less how they get their recruits.  Everyone that pays even cursory attention to college football knows/suspects that this is how it happens anyways.  So, no biggie.

Post by: JasonPratt on July 03, 2016, 12:48:31 PM
If there was no such thing as free will, "we" wouldn't exist to be better off believing in it anyway.  :buck2: The analyses of the scientists arguing that free will doesn't exist, are themselves absolutely rooted in a tacit exception in favor of the scientists and their work. This ought to be a huge signal they're getting either their experiments or their conclusions from the experiment wrong.

But of course if even a little free will really does exist (no one disputes that a lot of our behaviors are purely automatic), that has massively huge logical implications, too. And ultimately religious implications. And the promoters of free will being an illusion, in modern science anyway, tend to have a vested ideological interest in atheism being true. When someone engages in a self-contradictory position that looks, on the surface, favorable to their ideology, that's a sign weighing in favor of them having salted the scales somewhere!

Quote
Saul Smilansky, a philosophy professor at the University of Haifa, in Israel, has wrestled with this dilemma throughout his career and come to a painful conclusion: “We cannot afford for people to internalize the truth” about free will.

Spoken like someone who not only accepts he himself has (at least a little) free will, but who is nominally treating other people as though it's true they have free will, too! Screwdrivers do not "internalize the truth" about anything, even if they're as complexly operative as Furbees, or a Windows operating system.


Yeesh, that whole article was like watching people blithely running a shell game while other people applaud them for it.

http://www.bbc.com/culture/story/20170316-whatever-happened-to-generation-x

To be honest I'd never been sure if I belong with the last of the boomers or the first of the Gen-Xers. I'm coming to the conclusion that it's probably the latter.

Also, after everything I've had to do to get by in life (esp. for my kids) this quote stuck out for me. I'm sure a number of you can identify:
Quote
Coupland feels “neutral” about millennials, he says. “I will say that pretty much everything they say about millennials is what they said about X except that millennials seem unable to cope when things don’t go their way.”

Stagger, I think you are in the same age bracket that I am, 52, and I believe that makes us officially the last of the Boomers. I've never identified with the Gen X crowd, but that might be from being brought up in a military family.

The rule of thumb on GenX was always "if you were a teenager at some point in the 80s"

So if you were 18 and graduating high school in '81 or just starting middle school as a 13yo in '89, you're in that generation.

There's always going to be folks that sorry of float between generations. I actually have 2 uncles that really ought to count for GenX, not just by birth year, but by behavior as well, but can't bring themselves to identify with the same generation as their nieces and nephews instead of their brothers and sisters.

Child marriage in the US

https://www.nytimes.com/2017/05/26/opinion/sunday/it-was-forced-on-me-child-marriage-in-the-us.html

Call me weak, but I couldn't finish reading that. I started to cry too hard for personal reasons. The world is a shitty place. What the hell is wrong with people? Sick. I can't deal with it. It's called LEGALIZED PEDOPHILIA. Maybe this is getting to personal, but I don't care. I have nothing to hide. I can't remember the 1st time I was molested. I remember the 1st time I was raped. Unfortunately that wasn't the last time. I was 14. (Interesting. Friction by Imagine Dragons is playing right now in the background. Very fitting.) A slap on the wrist is what they got. These a-holes are running around like nothing. I on the other hand go to therapy 1-3 times a weak. I have flashbacks, PTSD. I work and volunteer so much to keep busy. I read and listen to music all the time. I feel that my rapists are also thieves, not only my sense of security, but my natural thought process. They moved into my mind and honestly they need to move the f*out. I'm working on evicting them. I've been told this might never happen. Yay me... that's not cool. That's a life sentence.  So, I'm going to go read The Little Prince to my baby and think happy thoughts.

For the past few years I've thought that the stylistic heir to the Blade Runner was the remake of Total Recall with Kate Beckinsale and Colin Farrell.  That movie really looks like someone just moved the Blade Runner sets 10 years further into the future and then turned the lights on.  It's not nearly as good of a movie.  I'm just talking about the visual/set design.

H.O.L.Y. Fuck.

Quote
Workers were trying to remove a blockage from a 30-foot-tall tank beneath the power plant’s boiler. The tank catches the molten ash that forms when coal burns — called slag — and cools it into harmless pebbles.

Because Tampa Electric kept the unit running, hot slag was building up overhead while the workers cleaned out the tank below.

The slag was supposed to stay trapped in the boiler. Instead, it poured down on the men.

THE FAMILY’S LEADERS HAVE PULLED OFF THREE OF THE GREAT MARKETING TRIUMPHS OF THE MODERN ERA: THE FIRST IS SELLING OXYCONTIN; THE SECOND IS PROMOTING THE SACKLER NAME; AND THE THIRD IS ENSURING THAT, AS FAR AS THE PUBLIC IS AWARE, THE FIRST AND THE SECOND HAVE NOTHING TO DO WITH ONE ANOTHER.

“The Fords, Hewletts, Packards, Johnsons—all those families put their name on their product because they were proud,” said Keith Humphreys, a professor of psychiatry at Stanford University School of Medicine who has written extensively about the opioid crisis. “The Sacklers have hidden their connection to their product. They don’t call it ‘Sackler Pharma.’ They don’t call their pills ‘Sackler pills.’ And when they’re questioned, they say, ‘Well, it’s a privately held firm, we’re a family, we like to keep our privacy, you understand.’ ”

It was an interesting read , I like a good archaeological dig ! We studied Native American history in highschool ...in history , go figure ! And I’ve always had a fascination with their culture and way of life , even before I studied it in school . I thought the map was a great addition to that article , showing the lost land mass of Beringia . I’ve heard the theory before that they came across a land bridge from Siberia , that has long since disappeared , but it’s cool to have that theory confirmed in their dna . I enjoyed the read  O0

Every time I see the ‘T’ on the jumpers , it makes me think of the t-birds from grease ! I know it stands for teenagers though in this case ! I’ve seen one clip of him singing , and you can see some of the girls in the audience pulling a face . It’s very sad that he had to deal with that kind of racism .As did a lot of others .

^I like a good archeological plot twist ! Good article . I’ve been to Sir Francis Drake’s home in Devon , legend has it , that he was supposed to be playing bowls on his front lawn when the Spanish Armada was spotted ( from st michaels mount in penzance .Ive been there too ) I have a small wooden ornament that I bought from the gift shop at Drakes house . It’s carved from a yew tree that was standing in Drake’s day .Apparently there was a storm that brought a row of yew trees down , and the trust that owns the house decided to use the wood for carvings to make money for the estate . I liked the map in the article of some of the NC coastline , and the sailing ship on the map looks great .

Agreed, that was a really good article.  I didn't find it all that tough to read.  I'm empathetic with those families that were left behind, but those guys knew what they were getting themselves into.  In fact, I was a bit pissed that they didn't discuss what to do if they died with their families.

A great read that had me welling up at times  :'(  it just goes to show how complicated the reasons are for homelessness , and that it’s not an easy area to help out another person . I think these sentences in this article showed how unreachable she was ,”she somehow managed to hold on to all of us , but she wouldn’t let us hold on to her.”  :'(  Thankgoodness people kept trying to help her and reach her , and even though they never got her off the streets before she died , all of that kindness must have definitely given her a better quality of life than she would have had , if all of those people had just ignored her .

but gawd help you if you ask those $50k/month pensions to give something back...  "but I earned it!" is the inevitable scream, and the selfishness that prevents anyone from a follow-on generation of having a chance at earning anything themselves, either.

very probably, the most words ever written in a single article about Sandler's movie career.  The article is also probably better than the career (especially if you leave out Spanglish)

But not Hasselbeck. “Look,” he says. “Every coach I ever played for says these are the priorities: faith, family, football. But no one really lives that way. No one. Jake didn’t retire. He put family and faith first. This is the way I judge people now: If you don’t like Jake Locker, I don’t think I can like you.”
