#Beijing is cultivating the next #generation of African elites by training them in #China

source: https://qz.com/1119447/china-is-training-africas-next-generation-of-leaders/
It’s a #campaign that achieves several goals at once. The trips help solidify political and #business ties between China and its partners on the #continent. Like other #development partners, China gets to help build capacity in African countries. Most importantly these exchanges cultivate partners on the continent who are more likely to be sympathetic to China and its way of doing things.
...
But not all lessons from China should be learned. Under Xi Jinping, China has tightened its stranglehold over civil #society. South #Sudan is already familiar with some of these tactics. Local journalists are intimidated into silence or killed.

A Unified #Theory of #Meme #Death

Why do some memes last longer than others? Are they just funnier? Better?
And if so, what makes a meme better? The answer lies not in traditional memetics, but in the #study of jokes.
...
Memes capture and maintain #people’s #attention in a given #moment because something about that moment provides a #context that makes that meme attractive.

A Unified Theory of Meme Death

Why do some memes last longer than others? Are they just funnier? Better?
 

The #Gift of #Death

There’s nothing they need, nothing they don’t own already, nothing they even want. So you buy them a solar-powered waving queen; a belly button brush; (...) or – and somehow I find this significant – a Scratch Off World wall map.

They seem amusing on the first day of #Christmas, daft on the second, embarrassing on the third. By the twelfth they’re in landfill.

A #Generation in #Japan Faces a Lonely #Death

To many residents in Mrs. Ito’s complex, the deaths were the natural and frightening conclusion of Japan’s journey since the 1960s. A single-minded focus on economic growth, followed by painful economic stagnation over the past generation, had frayed families and communities, leaving them trapped in a demographic crucible of increasing age and declining births.

#YouTube: Something is wrong on the #internet

What concerns me is not just the #violence being done to #children here, although that concerns me deeply. What concerns me is that this is just one aspect of a kind of infrastructural violence being done to all of us, all of the time, and we’re still struggling to find a way to even talk about it, to describe its mechanisms and its actions and its effects. As I said at the beginning of this #essay: this is being done by people and by things and by a combination of things and people.

What is Socialism?

When it is established it must be on a global basis, as a real alternative to the present system. In a socialist society there will be common ownership of the Earth by its inhabitants and no minority will dictate to us that production must give priority to profit. There will be no owners. The people of the world will share the world. Production will be for use, not sale. The only questions we will need to ask about production are what do people need and can these needs be met. Science and technology will at last be used to their fullest potential and in the service of humanity. The basic socialist principle will be that people give according to their abilities and take according to their needs. There will be no buying or selling, as money will have been abolished and will not be necessary in a world of free access. Socialism will mean a world without borders or frontiers, social classes or leaders, slates or governments, force or coercion.

“Throughout my childhood, I have been harassed and bullied, and I always wondered ‘why do we have to accept this violence, just because we are women?’,” she said in an interview with The Jordan Times on Monday.

To those accusing her of encouraging violence, Khalifeh responded: “You are lying if you say there is no violence in #society; there is and always will be. So, when you encounter violence, you should be able to defend yourself.”

Have #Smartphones Destroyed a #Generation?

Today’s teens are also less likely to date. The initial stage of courtship, which Gen Xers called “liking” (as in “Ooh, he likes you!”), kids now call “talking”—an ironic choice for a generation that prefers texting to actual #conversation. After two teens have “talked” for a while, they might start dating. But only about 56 percent of high-school seniors in 2015 went out on dates; for Boomers and Gen Xers, the number was about 85 percent.

The Inevitable #Evolution of Bad #Science

source: https://www.theatlantic.com/science/archive/2016/09/the-inevitable-evolution-of-bad-science/500609/
Over time, and across many simulations, the virtual labs inexorably slid towards less effort, poorer methods, and almost entirely unreliable results. And here’s the important thing: Unlike the hypothetical researcher I conjured up earlier, none of these simulated scientists are actively trying to cheat. They used no strategy, and they behaved with integrity. And yet, the community naturally slid towards poorer methods. What the model shows is that a world that rewards scientists for publications above all else - a world not unlike this one - naturally selects for weak science.

#Fighting Climate Change Can Be a Lonely #Battle in #Oil Country, Especially for a Kid

Louisianans are less likely than most other Americans to believe in man-made #climate #change. That's partly because of a long #campaign by fossil #fuel interests to muddy the science on global warming and fight #pollution regulation. In Rayne, many men work oil rigs in the Gulf of Mexico, including Jayden's own father at one time, and there's a natural sympathy for an #industry that has been painted as a victim of zealous environmentalists. Climate #science is not part of the public #school curriculum.
