- Frances Woolley on the changing dynamics in the relationship between economists and the media in Canada over the past 8 years.
- The unintended consequences of labour policies that are meant to be friendly for parents and families – a nice account of many examples by Claire Cain Miller.
- FanGraphs explains batting average on balls in play (BABIP) in great detail.
- How Neil Bartlett discovered compounds that contain noble gases. (Yes – they can react!) He began his research at the University of British Columbia in Vancouver (my hometown). He also discovered a compound in which oxygen is a positively charged ion. Very cool stuff!
