A week of links

Links this week:

  1. A few years old, but good – a story from a Blue Zone “where people forget to die”. HT: Razib Khan
  2. Another critique of modern dietary guidelines. Weight gain after a fecal transplant. And the US Government is about to drop warnings about cholesterol.
  3. Improving ‘Neoclassical man’ with a gaze heuristic.
  4. Bigger data sets are uncovering the genetic underpinnings of intelligence.
  5. A take on the Peter Principle.
  6. To what extent will new birth control options be another fertility shock?
  7. Yet more on lead and crime.
  8. Greg Clark on social mobility. And my review of his book.

And if you missed them, my posts this week:

  1. Will defaults lose their power in the digital age. Or, as put by Eric Crampton, Will nudges survive the Lucs Critique?
  2. I recommend using a story other than organ donation rates to support defaults.
