  • If we can convince people that climate change is real and important, then surely they will act: this intuitive idea underlies many efforts to communicate climate change to the public.

  • "Ink is two times more expensive than French perfume by volume," Suvir says
  • Collecting random samples of teachers' handouts, Suvir concentrated on the most commonly used characters (e, t, a, o and r).
    First, he charted how often each character was used in four different typefaces: Garamond, Times New Roman, Century Gothic and Comic Sans. Then he measured how much ink was used for each letter, using a commercial tool called APFill® Ink Coverage Software.

    Let’s say that you design a city so that there are green spaces and parks in a hope that you will reduce pollution. You might find out that the green spaces and parks cool the city, provide places of recreation and exercise, and generally improve the quality of life beyond merely pollution. These would be called co-benefits; they are extra benefits

  • anytime you can focus your performance on improving one aspect, that is the most effective way of improving performance.
  • If you’re just doing things that feel comfortable and go out and jog, the body basically won’t change. In order to actually change your aerobic ability,
  • practice now at a heart rate that is above 70 percent of your maximal heart rate. So it would be maybe around 140 for a young adult. And you have to do that for about 30 minutes at least two or three times a week.

  • 6,000 Airbnb listings remain un-registered.

    Many of them, they say, have been permanently taken off the rental market; to the detriment of the city's shrinking housing stock.

    "Only way to bring those thousands of units back to the market is by holding the platforms accountable," Peskin said.

  • there is no federal standard for arsenic in food
  • How does rice compare to other grains like wheat and oats? It turns out it’s much higher because of two main factors: How and where rice is grown
  • Arsenic has also been commonly used in animal feed to prevent disease and make both hogs and chickens grow faster. The manure from these farms also ultimately ends up adding arsenic back in the soil (it’s even permitted on organic farms). Hansen says he’s seen ample evidence that soils that have been treated with poultry manure for years “have significantly higher levels of arsenic than untreated soil.”

p22:
past behavior of a
professional jurist is an excellent predictor of his or her future behavior as a
jurist. This may be particularly true when the jurist has had to deal with
controversial, high-profile legal issues like abortion, capital punishment, gay
rights, euthanasia, and so on. Conversely, the past behavior of a nonprofessional
jurist, while supplying useful information, is not as good a predictor of
his or her likely voting as a jurist

  • Capital improvements are things like new windows, a new roof, painting of the exterior of the building, landscaping, new appliances (ranging from refrigerators to a new heating system) and other similar improvements to the property which generally are additions or replacements as opposed to repairs. Landlords must complete the work, petition the Rent Board and win approval of the rent increase before the cost can be passed on. Tenants can contest the increases at the hearing on certain grounds, like that the work was never done, or was not necessary, or was done to gentrify the building, but it is difficult to stop such a passthrough in its entirety.
  • Once the capital improvement has been paid for, then the tenant’s rent reverts to what it was prior to the passthrough (plus any allowable increases in the interim); capital improvement rent increases are not part of your “base rent,” meaning the annual increase percentage calculation does not include the capital improvement passthrough.
