Saturday assorted links

1. Reading Gone With the Wind in China.

2. Are nouns less emotive than verbs? (The Economist)

3. Jedediah Purdy on “the usual stuff,” though better than usual.

4. The again collapse of Argentina.

5. “The results show that fully two thirds (67%) of children either do not know what a floppy disk is or incorrectly identify it. And yes, several children did in fact identify the object as a save icon.” Link here.  And “71% of children are also unfamiliar with overhead projectors, a former mainstay of classrooms across the country.”  Thank goodness, there is indeed no great stagnation!

6. How Sweden became an enclave for country and roots music.
