The liver is a fascinating thing. If you want to read a thought-provoking story about the liver, you might like to learn about the challenges of building a fairer system for allocating access to liver transplants. Or the history of efforts to grow "liverettes" in petri dishes. Interested in an international, culinary angle? What about Turkey's annual Liver Festival ? How about a heartwarming story from member station WBUR about a 6-year-old boy who had a bright idea for helping his friend with a rare liver disease? The New York Times ran a strange and beautiful essay this summer, about the history of the human liver (the "seat of the human soul" to Mesopotamians) and its strange "inventory of talents. "The liver "sprawls like a beached sea lion," Natalie Angier writes, "likes its bloodlines leaky," keeps track of time through mysterious oscillations. It's a great essay. You could go read it now, if you like. Or — if you must — you can read about the British surgeon who repeatedly
The popular crowdfunding service Patreon has backed off plans to change its payment structure, after widespread, vocal and passionate opposition from creators and their fans. Last week, the site announced it would attach a surcharge to every individual donation pledge — a change that would negatively impact anyone trying to send small quantities of money to multiple artists they support. Many users immediately pulled their support from the platform. On Wednesday, the site reversed course, apologized to members who have already lost money, and issued a mea culpa. "We messed up," founder and CEO Jack Conte said in a public letter released Wednesday. (He reportedly delivered a similar, more forceful assessment in private conversations with Patreon users.) "We're sorry," he wrote. Patreon, a service popular with independent musicians, writers and artists, allows fans, or "patrons," to back "creators" through small, repeated payments to them. Think of Kickstarter, except that instead of
When Sen.-elect Doug Jones, D-Ala., addressed his cheering supporters Tuesday night in Birmingham, Ala., one of his first shout-outs went to his African-American supporters. As well it should have. Black voters made up 29 percent of the electorate in Alabama's special Senate election, according to on exit polling . That percentage is slightly more than the percentage of Black voters in the state who turned out for Barack Obama in 2012 . And a full 96 percent of Black voters in Alabama Tuesday supported Jones, including 98 percent of African-American women . "Black women led us to victory. Black women are the backbone of the Democratic party," Democratic National Committee chairman Tom Perez tweeted Wednesday morning , "and we can't take that for granted. Period." Jones win spurred many posts on Twitter with the hashtag " BlackVotesMatter ." One of his African-American supporters, Mae Stevenson, told NPR's Russell Lewis Tuesday night that Jones was "somebody who really and truly had a
A class-action lawsuit against the City of New York has spurred the first suit of its kind that promises cash compensation to those who say they were illegally put in solitary confinement while at Rikers Island jail complex between 2012 and 2015. As the Associated Press reports, the city will pay more than $4 million to 470 plaintiffs in the case. The case refers to a jailing practice referred to as "old time" policy. According to a press release from the office of Alex Reinert, one of the lawyers for the plaintiffs, the policy required Rikers inmates to, "serve time in solitary for stale disciplinary infractions committed during a prior incarceration, often years earlier." If a person was incarcerated and was ordered to serve in solitary confinement, that order could be reinstated upon subsequent, potentially unrelated, incarcerations. Rikers did away with the old time policy in 2015, when it updated its confinement rules. A federal judge in Brooklyn granted a preliminary approval of
Wildfires in December are the new norm for California. In the West, they are burning hotter and more intensely than ever due to climate change, and the situation is made worse by the explosion of development in fire prone areas and past firefighting decisions. Here are three reasons the fires are massive and likely won't abate anytime soon. 1. It's nearly impossible to put out a modern mega-fire We can't expect firefighters to control, let alone put out major fires like the Thomas Fire. It's forced thousands to evacuate and destroyed close to 700 homes in Ventura and Santa Barbara counties and has quickly become among the top five largest fires in California history. Of the top 10 biggest fires, eight have occurred in the last 10 years. The Thomas Fire is what experts are now calling a mega-fire. It's fueled by ongoing drought, extremely low humidity and Santa Ana winds that make it nearly impossible for firefighters to stop. Often it's been too dangerous for crews to drop water or

Back in October, L.A. RECORD premiered the first single from Burger superduo L.A. Law—that's Gabe Fulvimar from Gap Dream and Jessie Jones from Feeding People, her own stand-out solo album and more—and now we've got the thing itself! Law & Order is like Giorgio Moroder and Stereolab soundtracking the collaboration James Cameron and John Carpenter never made, with relentlessly funky synth bass and robotic drums and waves of digital atmosphere. And while atmosphere and robots are wonderful things, it's Jones who brings this to (alien) life, with vocals that sound like they're coming in from another dimension. It's music for a future that's still out there somewhere, and it's out on Burger on Fri., Dec. 15!
