Stuff I bookmarked recently. Some off topic, some not:
Anger Can Be Contagious – Here’s How To Stop The Spread
“We were able to show that as one person became happy or sad, it rippled through the network,”…It’s not just happiness that spreads, unhappiness and anger can be contagious, too…There’s evidence that emotional contagion can spread through our digital interactions, too…So, just how far does this go? A study of nearly 700,000 Facebook users suggests we can pick up on — and mirror — the emotions we encounter in our social media feeds, too…”We found that when good things were happening in your news feed — to your friends and your family — you also tended to write more positively and less negatively,”…And, the reverse was true, too. Viewing more negative posts prompted people to write more more sad or angry things…One study finds there may be a little bit of troll in each of us. If you read a nasty message from a troll that dishes out sarcasm or a personal attack, and you happen to be in a bad mood, the research shows you’re more likely to copy the troll-like behavior…Bottom line: It’s easier to be mean from behind a screen. The rules of face-to-face interactions don’t exist.

In a letter addressed to top executives, a group of Microsoft workers is demanding the company drop a controversial contract with the United States Army.
Warning issued over attacks on internet infrastructure
Key parts of the internet infrastructure face large-scale attacks that threaten the global system of web traffic, the internet’s address keeper warned Friday.
The Internet Corporation for Assigned Names and Numbers (ICANN) declared after an emergency meeting “an ongoing and significant risk” to key parts of the infrastructure that affects the domains on which websites reside.
“They are going after the internet infrastructure itself,” ICANN chief technology officer David Conrad told AFP.
“There have been targeted attacks in the past, but nothing like this.”
“There is evidence that it is coming out of Iran and being done in support of Iran.”
Iran… what a surprise.
With women in combat roles, a federal court rules male-only draft unconstitutional
But U.S. District Judge Gray Miller ruled late Friday that while historical restrictions on women serving in combat “may have justified past discrimination,” men and women are now equally able to fight. In 2015, the Pentagon lifted all restrictions for women in military service.
All or none. I had posted this a month ago:
Should Young Americans Be Required To Do Public Service? Federal Panel Says Maybe
Should the U.S. require its citizens to perform public service? Should its young women register for the draft?
A federal panel says it is working on answers to those questions — and is considering how the nation could implement a universal service program and whether it should be mandatory or optional.
Panel says “maybe”, Eric says, “You’re damn right they should”. Military, Peace Corps, Public works…Everyone. Period. No deferments for any reason.
Bid to curb Virginia drivers’ handheld cellphone use dies in session’s final hours
Under current Virginia law, drivers cannot use their phones for emails or texts, but it does not cover a multitude of other potential smartphone uses ranging from social media to video streaming.
Buffett says wealthy Americans are ‘definitely undertaxed’
from a couple of weeks ago:
‘I’ve paid $10bn in tax but it should have been more!’: Microsoft founder Bill Gates, 63, says he and the rest of the world’s richest ‘don’t deserve’ their fortunes
Two of the richest guys on the planet say the rich aren’t paying enough. Hmm…
