Non-Steemit Reading Log, 11 July 2018: science, immigration, and society
So I have a habit of opening articles I want to read in a new tab, so that my flow on Facebook/Twitter/Steemit is not interrupted, and then going back to read later when I'm in a reading mood and not a socializing mood. This of course means I have a billion open tabs all the time, kinda like my "to be read" or "in progress" piles of books, both digital and physical...

Anyway, eventually I go on a bit of an article reading bender to clear that up a bit, and I just did that tonight. These aren't all the articles I read, just the ones I found really share-worthy, and I still only cleared probably half my open tabs (but my eyes already feel strained from screen reading). Eh heh ...eh heh ...I have issues.

So this post is partly inspired by @effofex's reading log posts, except they aren't Steemit articles. But I figure I'm sharing them on other social media, and this is social media, so we can share, right? It isn't a Parley or dlike post, but a big list of articles I found interesting and thought others might, too, so I'm not clogging your feed with each individual post.


## Environment & Science!
*you must always shout science! like a mad steampunk scientist, it's a rule*

Just world hypothesis - if people feel helpless to change a situation, they often justify it in their head in order to align with their world view that "things happen for a reason" or "the world is fair/they're in control of their lives" and this leads to victim blaming and other shitty behavior.

THIS ONE IS SUPER IMPORTANT. Increased CO2 = nutrient decreases, sugar increases in plants; less nutrition for humans, animals ...and possible reason for bee decline!!

https://youtu.be/x4ed7Y5Xffg

Okay, not an article but a video about how ballooning spiders use electricity to fly. Do not watch if images of spiders set off your arachnophobia.

# 
https://www.usatoday.com/story/tech/news/2018/06/08/cardboard-recycling-rates-drop-shopping-amazon-walmart-surges/630967002/?#_=_

We're using more cardboard because of e-commerce, but recycling less.

# 
## Immigration
## 

https://jacobinmag.com/2018/06/abolish-ice-immigration-cbp-deportation

How to abolish ICE

# 
https://theconversation.com/how-us-policy-in-honduras-set-the-stage-for-todays-mass-migration-65935

How US interference is in large part responsible for the current exodus from Honduras; article from 2016, still relevant

# 
https://www.dailykos.com/stories/2018/6/21/1774063/-The-Immigration-Law-No-One-Is-Talking-About?detail=facebook

Just refugee laws are already on the books in the US and are part of a UN treaty since the 60s; the US is breaking its own laws AND a treaty

# 
## Society
## 


https://www.jacobinmag.com/2015/08/burning-man-one-percent-silicon-valley-tech/

Why the rich love Burning Man

# 
https://www.villagevoice.com/2018/06/12/who-are-we-telling-depressed-people-to-reach-out-to-anyway/

Vague platitudes about "getting help" when speaking of mental illness/depression/suicide when help is unavailable is just salt in the wound


# 
# 
So there you go, eight articles and one video that I thought were informative and interesting. What new things have you been learning about lately?

I'm deeply gratified to have had a hand in inspiring a post like this!

For what it's worth, you have my go-ahead on that ;)
