  1. "The results of our meta-analysis showed that oral zinc formulations may shorten the duration of symptoms of the common cold."
  2. "Intake of zinc was associated with a significant reduction in the duration (days) (mean difference (MD) ?1.03, 95% confidence interval (CI) ?1.72 to ?0.34) (P = 0.003) (I2 statistic = 89%) but not the severity of common cold symptoms (MD ?1.06, 95% CI ?2.36 to 0.23) (P = 0.11) (I2 statistic = 84%)."
  3. "The review reinforces the common mistake (apparently made by Lubet too) that Ethnography’s role is to furnish us with hard-to-obtain facts about the social world. But is that what we get from the great ethnographers like Geertz or E. Goffman? No. Rather, great ethnography offers us deep, general *insights* See e.g., how Homans uses Whyte. *Thats* why Whyte is a classic."
  4. This review was bad but should have been worse IMHO. '“Why would anyone go to such lengths to get hold of a memoir whose essential purpose was to entertain?” (Oh, perhaps because people don’t find it very entertaining to be depicted as charlatans.) Such faux naïveté is unbecoming in someone as savvy as Lyons is, and makes him seem, in the end, an unreliable narrator of his own story.'
  5. Hubspot's founders response to Dan Lyon's book.
  6. Dan Lyon's employer/publisher pans his book! Sounds real bad.

  10. This is pretty opaque, but I think it is really pretty great.

  13. Unbelievable review of Pitchfork in n+1. I didn't even know what Pitchfork was before I read the article, I loved it. But I basically love everything that they do.
  14. Overview of a new book called "How To Fix Copyright" which sounds like something I could get behind.
  15. "When do states adopt the moral frames promoted by transnational advocacy organizations? Joshua W. Busby examines the success and failure of advocacy campaigns for debt relief, climate change, HIV/AIDS treatment, and membership in the International Criminal Court in the G7 countries to show that states adopt normative commitments based on key gatekeepers, and their perceptions of national interest. Moral Movements and Foreign Policy argues that material interests of states and of individual politicians are insufficient explanatory variables for making sense of foreign policy choices. Moral language, religious motivations, the desire to live up to a virtuous self-image all shape highly consequential foreign policy decisions that impact everything from foreign aid budgets to the voluntary ceding of state sovereignty over armed forces."
  16. Nice write-up of bikes useful for adventure touring with a good list of the kinds of specifications one might want.
  17. Ouch. This is a bad book review: "The empirical information he provides is perfunctory at best. His command of Marxism seems limited. His historical reach extends to his own earlier works. His vast theoretical apparatus is jimmy-rigged and empty. The graphs are inane, the writing atrocious. To call this book dull as dish water maligns dish water."

  20. Review of Zittrain's (Future of the Internet and How to Stop It) by Tim Wu.
  21. Awesome restaurant in Florence.
  22. A parody book review? A parody book?
  23. "If you ask me for really dangerous ideological films, for ideology at its purest, I’d say Kung Fu Panda. I saw it five times because my son likes it."
