Anything but water

  1. A article that compares Portland with Houston on zoning. Some supporters of Houston say -- without irony -- that cheap sprawl is better than expensive compactness. I'd say that they are missing the point of life in a city: it's about human interaction, not cars

  2. The economics of swimsuits resemble the economics of Christmas trees!

  3. Health: Don't just exercise -- stop sitting down!

  4. A thoughtful post on monitoring your kid's internet behaviour. Parents know better than the NSA

  5. More details on scams to make academic publications "popular." These result from the high-powered incentives that academics face to produce "important" research
