10,000 Birds

Too far for a clear camera shot, but most definitively the Egyptian Vultures. Scientific papers are simply boring. That is why they have sections Abstract and Summary, to allow you to read the digested versions and skip the rest. Somehow, it seems, beginners writing their first papers ask their older colleagues for advice and hear something like: That writing of yours is way too amusing – that is not the way to build the career!

The Definition of Harrier

10,000 Birds

In the dictionary, the word harry is defined as meaning to harass, annoy, or prove a nuisance to by repeated attacks. Randy Finley of Wildlifist generously shares with us a photo series that shows exactly how the Northern Harrier earned its evocative name… On a recent chilly late December morning, I was visiting the Lower Klamath National Wildlife Refuge on the California/Oregon border. I spotted a Northern Harrier cruising along one of the canals parallel to the auto route.

Fewer toys definitely beneficial for children

Green (Living) Review

by Michael Smith (Veshengro) The other day I observed a small boy – about five to six years old – in the Park, while I was cutting the grass on the estate, playing for hours happily on his own with a toy truck while his adults were sitting on a bench. With one single toy he was occupied, and seriously engrossed in play, on his own, without getting distracted or fidgety.

Hey #EconTwitter (and blog readers), I'm curious as to your reaction to this principles-level definition/discussion of efficiency (and equity) and ultimately the definition of the study of economics

  But the definition of what is fair will be different depending on who is making the decision.    But what is missing from this discussion and what is implicitly assumed in Mankiw's definition of efficiency is that everyone is OK with the goal of maximizing the size of the economic pie.     Quite the contrary and this is where some of the critics of economics overreact when they see Mankiw-like definitions of efficiency.

The good news is that our society is striving to be more aware of our natural surroundings, and how we’re all connected through nature.

The Resource Conservation and Recovery Act (RCRA) was enacted in 1976, but in 2008 the Bush Administration exempted these companies handling the most dangerous substances from complying.
