Following in the footsteps of one of my favorite bloggers and researchers, Carnegie Mellon Statistics Professor Cosma Shalizi, I now offer links and material for my course interspersed in my professional blog.
These recent stories and blog posts are of especial relevance for Environmental Justice and the topics we’ve been discussing, and so are highly recommended:
- William Easterly (NYU Economist and International Aid specialist) “[Comes] out as a feminist“
- News from within good ol’ WSU on consumerism: “Self-control for impulse buyers: Like a muscle, resistance can grow with exercise“
- Regarding chemical safety, food, and US’s non-precautionary non-principles: “Report: Industry decides US food ingredient safety“
- Greed, inequality, and happiness (and useful graphics) analyzing some recent research on self-organizing market oligopoly
- In a somewhat different (in its mostly positive implications) vein: Mexican Constitution now recognizes the Right to Food
