Things I’m Up to and Interested In

GoFundMe I’m happy to share with the Primal audience: Buy Ranch
Direct Fire Relief
. The good folks at Buy Ranch Direct, a
community of family-owned and -operated grass-fed beef ranches in
California, lost their warehouse this fall in an electrical fire.
They’re in the process of rebuilding, but insurance isn’t
covering most of the loss.

Podcast I enjoyed: Freakonomics on
open offices
.

Article I found interesting:
What schizophrenia can teach us about pleasure
.

I certainly hope it works (without side effects): Scientists
hope to
block the molecule
that accelerates the evolution of
drug-resistant bacteria.

I can’t help but admire the entrepreneurial spirit, I just
hope it doesn’t become standard: Air quality is so bad that San
Francisco Uber drivers are
selling masks
to customers.

This is a powerful story: How winning the nation’s “best
cheeseburger”
caused
a Portland burger joint to close down.

Question I’m Asking

With Google stopping development of its glucose-monitoring lens
and all the other failures and dubious advancements, tech is
realizing that biology’s a hard nut to crack. Do you think
technology will ever figure out human biology and vault us into
sci-fi territory?

Comment of the Week

“When you’re a gardener, a home is much more than just a
place to keep your stuff. My husband and I are finally enjoying
fruit from trees that we planted 5 years ago and have cared for
since. In just the past few months alone, we have put in hundreds
of hours of work wheelbarrowing woodchips to the backyard in
preparation for a permaculture food-forest. I’m in Santa Rosa,
CA, where we had the Tubb’s fire raging within a quarter-mile in
October 2017. I feel very thankful to still have my home and
garden.”

– Glad to hear you made it,
Naomi
