Friday Links!

Have a great weekend, everyone!

From Ken P., and this is potentially huge (no pun intended): Diabetes drug helps patients lose never-before-seen amounts of weight, new study shows. This is an excellent read: ‘Gone Girl,’ Still Here. This is fascinating: The Brain Applies Data Compression for Decision-Making. This is very, very bad: As the Great Salt Lake Dries Up, Utah Faces An ‘Environmental Nuclear Bomb’.

From Brian B., and what a fantastic read: My students cheated... A lot

From Wally, and yes, it's a slideshow, but some of these flavors are epically bad: Who asked for this? Percy Hobart fans, your day has come: The Military Genius Behind D-Day's Do-it-all Tanks.

Quality links from C. Lee, as always. First, it's ‘We’re playing with fire’: US Covid cases may be 30 times higher than reported. Next: Vaccinations of young children could begin 'in earnest' by June 21 -White House. I missed almost half of these: You're (Probably) Saying It Wrong. This is quite interesting: How the humble dung beetle engineers better ecosystems in Australia. This is an astonishing bit of history: Behind the Mask of Lonesome Gal, Vintage Radio’s Virtual Girlfriend (the audio clip is utterly fantastic). Amazing: Research Team Uses Green Light to Make Fish Grow 60% Faster.
