Today’s selection of articles:

  1. Why kids are the masters of existence“, by Rob Marchant (Antidotes for chimps, 2019-01-12). At once obvious and thought-provoking. Read it.
  2. The uncertain future of particle physics“, by Sabine Hossenfelder (NY Times, 2019-01-23). The author argues portrays the LHC as a Let-down of High Cost, particle physics as a smorgasbord of mathematically sophisticated cooked books, and a promotional video for the Future Circular Collider as misleading to manufacture demand among less-informed. The author concludes by offering concrete alternative projects.
  3. Square: Avoid this red-hot stock“, by Michael Wiggins De Oliveira (The Street, 2019-01-24). The author cites negative revised earnings, very high price-to-cash flow from operations, and competition as reasons to avoid investing in Square at present.
