There's some good economic forecasting here, generally speaking, but the real gold in this is the slideshow attached at the end. No one knows what will happen, but this article and slideshow do a pretty good job of collecting what we do know and making several possible educated predictions accordingly.
So much incredible info in this article. I've now also followed @NASAJuno.

This is actually great and surprising news. Installing the app as I type this up.
Another great piece of writing from J.D. Vance. He’s really on the pulse of what frustrated white working-class people are feeling and thinking. This rings so true for me both as a believer and a guy with lots of frustrated church folk friends:
A Christianity constantly looking for political answers to moral and spiritual problems gives believers an excuse to blame other people when they should be looking in the mirror.
We really do need honest self-reflection and criticism in the church today. I appreciate Vance’s bravery to call it out. Hopefully, more of us can find that courage and strength.
Trump is cultural heroin. He makes some feel better for a bit. But he cannot fix what ails them, and one day they'll realize it.
This not a liberal versus conservative piece. It’s honest, heartfelt writing from J.D. Vance about the emptiness of Trump’s promises and the day of reckoning that is coming if we don’t find real answers for the hurt and fear that is present.
I hope Doctorow is right here – that we’re entering a period where we can talk seriously about how to protect privacy, rather than taking it for granted. I’m not sure average people really feel this in the way Doctorow believes they do. Here’s hoping they do.
Juno doesn't just have an interesting target -- it's a very interesting robot for its own sake. Jupiter has some of the most intense radiation in the solar system. In some areas, the electrons surrounding it move nearly at the speed of light. That would tear your average robot's computer to shreds, but Juno is encased in a unique suit of armor to protect it.

stretched thin, but always creating new and interesting programming.
Now that I’ve lost a little weight, I’ve been thinking of taking up running again. This article stokes my nerdy sports need and makes me want to run even more so.
