Compound in Marijuana Appears Safe and Nonaddictive, WHO Says


:@WilliamBaude: Book recommendations from me and my colleagues
Posted:Thu, 14 Dec 2017 07:28:00 -0500

Every year, the Chicago faculty collects some of our favorite books of the year with recommendations for anybody who might be interested. This year, I had two:

Neal Stephenson & Nicole Galland, The Rise and Fall of D.O.D.O.

I am a sucker for time travel novels, but this excellent new caper is not an ordinary time travel book. It explores the surprising reason for witchcraft's demise, the dynamics of government bureaucracy, and the corruption of academia by the military industry complex. And yet it is light, funny, and not particularly mystical. If you've read the authors' work before, you might be able to guess how they pull this off. If not, now is the time to start.

I usually run out and buy any new Stphenson, but I haven't read his various co-written ones.
This one looks interesting.

I'm a fan of Judge Kozinski. But I as also a fan of Heidi Bond, who was a prominent law blogger at crescat sententia before her clerkships with Kozinski and then the supreme court.

Her statements about working with Kozinski are troubling.

Companies producing such stones have sprung up all over China, churning out an estimated 160,000 to 200,000 carats of gem-quality diamonds every month. That’s enough to propel the country to the world’s top spot in terms of synthetic production, industry insiders believe.
Out: gold farming. In: diamond farming.

 So I'm buying an old house in a happening area where I used to rent 25 years ago, and I don't plan to spend the $ for a full rehab,
but I'll take a tip from Joe Kennedy and just paint the side that faces the street. The house painter I talked to didn't know what Trompe L'oeil was, so I'll ask my former roommate/art teacher buddy if she's interested in a commission. Update - she said yes.

Located on the 800-900 block of North Rural Street, the Teacher’s Village will be a close-knit community comprised of 20-25 brightly-colored, bungalow-style homes— and will be available to IPS teachers in their first-, second-, or third-year. Homes are expected to be completed May 2018, and will enter the market starting at $130,000.

I'm in the middle of buying an $8000 house a block from there, so this is good news to me.
