Hanna Pickard – Why do people become addicts? Sarah started using heroin when she was 16, and soon after that she left home to live with her dealer. Heroin was one of the ways he had power over her. He was older than her, and often unfaithful. Over the three years that they were together, they frequently fought, sometimes violently. She would end up staying with friends or on the streets. She would steal to get money for heroin until he convinced her to return, partially through the promise of more drugs. Sarah received treatment for her addiction in prison, and had frequent contact with mental health professionals, but she has never successfully gone without heroin for more than a few days, despite repeated efforts. This is a fictional case study, based on the real addicts I come across in my work. I am a philosopher and I am also a therapist within the National Health System in the UK, and I often see patients like Sarah. Addiction is a burden to us all, not just to addicts. Who is this minority? 3 April 2013 Comments

Arc de Seine Kayak - Détails pratiques La méthode d'attache en "guirlandes" des kayaks de mer Par Gilles, sur les indications de Vincent A. Il faut d'abord mettre les kayaks en suspension unitaire souple à la proue. Le kayak ne doit pas toucher la remorque. Pour cela, on installe une grande sangle de 5 mètres faisant 3 berceaux souples pour 3 kayaks sur le flanc. On recommence la manip à la poupe. Ensuite, on plaque individuellement chaque kayak suspendu vers le bas par d'autres contre-sangles de 5 mètres à hauteur des barres horizontales avant et arrière de la remorque. On ne s'occupe pas des bosses. Chaque kayak peut osciller de quelques centimètres une fois attaché. Si le résultat final est satisfaisant pour les kayaks, c'est plutôt long et compliqué à mettre en œuvre. Il est impératif d'inspecter chaque pointe de kayak suspendu pour s'assurer qu'on n'a rien oublié dans le fatras de sangles tous azimuts, parce qu'en cas de freinage brutal, un seul kayak suspendu mais non plaqué...

The pros and cons of newspaper paywalls: a Twitter debate Debates over newspaper paywalls break out all the time, but not all of them involve a former Dow Jones chief executive, a former Wall Street Journal publisher, the current head of the Wall Street Journal‘s digital arm, the president of BuzzFeed and media writers for Bloomberg and All Things Digital. Just such a debate broke out on Sunday, however, and you can check out an edited version of it below (or there’s also a Storify version.) I started things off with a critical tweet about a Bloomberg story by Edmund Lee on how the New York Times paywall was working “better than anyone had guessed,” which I contrasted with a post of mine about the decline in traffic to the NYT site (as measured by comScore) and what appeared to be a corresponding decline in advertising revenue — including digital revenue. Edmund responded that his story said circulation revenue has made up for the shortfall in ad revenue. . ... . . @mathewi @bgrueskin @rajunarisetti @davisshaver @edmundlee @joshsternberg True.

Google's trend charts of the phrase "Harlem Shake" are seismic. No one looked for the words until Feb. 7, then searches surged faster than any term Google ever had, except for "Whitney Houston" after her death. A few weeks later, they fell close to zero. Experts said the "Harlem Shake" phenomenon was emergent behavior from the hive mind of the internet--accidental, ad hoc, uncoordinated: a "meme" that "went viral." But this is untrue. The word "meme" comes from evolutionary biologist Richard Dawkins. Jan. 30 On Jan. 30, a Japanese-American college student named George Miller, posted athree-and-a-half minute compilation of comedy on YouTube. Feb. 2 Musical imitations are part of YouTube culture. Feb. 3 The next day, Sunday, Feb. 3, America came to its annual standstill for the Super Bowl. Feb. 7-8 A new imitation of "Harlem Shake" appeared. YouTube rewards this kind of behavior. Feb. 10 This is abnormal.
