I watched every single Democratic and Republican primary debate and came away thinking that Hillary Clinton and Ted Cruz were the most well suited to the office in terms of cognitive adeptness.
“But, her emails!”
“But, his blobfish face!”
The Protect Kids and Parents Act looks about right to me.
I mentioned yesterday on Twitter that Swarthmore pal @marcus_noland and I have been chatting about North Korea for a very long time. I found that I had commented on Marc’s North Korea blog as early as 2011. I also went back and checked my gmail — I found a message from 2005. And I’m pretty sure that I remember contacting Marc about an idea to assemble a North Korea data set for CIESIN when I was working there in the mid 1990s.
All this long term attention to North Korea has paid off for Marc, who is one of the world’s foremost experts on the North Korean economy. It’s hard to say exactly how I have benefitted, except from being unsurprised that Dennis Rodman is attending the summit in Singapore. Psychic income, I guess!

I downloaded a data set the other day for curiosity, opened it up, and immediately found a probable error: the population of Paris went from 9M in 1975 to 2M in 2000. Confirmed today by provider. I’m actually kind of a crappy proof reader — I tend to miss things — but I’m a great spot inspector. Made my day!
That is a long time ago. History keeps getting deeper.
About 709,000 years ago, someone butchered a rhinoceros using stone tools on the Philippine island of Luzon. That may not seem remarkable — except that humans weren’t supposed to be in the Philippines so long ago.
Before this discovery, the earliest indicator that early humans, or hominins, were even on those islands had been a single foot bone from 67,000 years ago, uncovered in the Callao Cave on Luzon. That’s quite a time jump.
