Apple Health Data Is Being Used as Evidence in a Rape and Murder Investigation

quote [ German authorities cracked a man's iPhone and found out what he was up to. ]

Pretty insane use of iPhone Health tracker but I imagine that the investigator on the crime was -really- proud of himself for thinking it up.

Don't feed the Trolls really is good advice – here's the evidence

quote [ A new study suggests that the pleasure of getting an angry reaction is the biggest predictor of online trolling behavior – meaning that the best way to fight back is just to ignore them. ]

We've had more Trolling than usual over the last few months and wanted to just toss out a post to remind everyone Trolls aren't looking to engage or debate or have an intellectual arguments - they just want a response. Not giving it them (mod and ignore) is the best way to respond online.

The Booming Japanese Rent-a-Friend Business

quote [ You can pay an actor to impersonate your relative, spouse, coworker, or any kind of acquaintance. ]

Morin: Does she understand that you’re not her real father?

Yuichi: No, the mother hasn’t told her.

Morin: How do you think she would feel if she discovered the truth?

Yuichi: I think she would be shocked. If the client never reveals the truth, I must continue the role indefinitely. If the daughter gets married, I have to act as a father in that wedding, and then I have to be the grandfather. So, I always ask every client, “Are you prepared to sustain this lie?” It’s the most significant problem our company has.

This service should be someone's PhD in psychology or something. It's heartwarming, bonkers, sad, wtf, etc.

Donald Trump broke the conservative media

quote [ Donald Trump has severed the roots of the conservative media ecosystem. Where does it go from here? "
Some conservatives tried to fight back against Trump, pleading with their audiences to see what they contended to be the rational point of view, but their arguments seemed to go unheard.

One of the chief problems, Sykes said, was that it had become impossible to prove to listeners that Trump was telling falsehoods because over the past several decades, the conservative news media had "basically eliminated any of the referees, the gatekeepers."" ]

When you teach people lies, expect them to believe liars.

Also, more terrifying Trump + Putin lovin' in the extended

US Health Care Reform: Progress and Next Steps

quote [ In this Special Communication, President Barack Obama reviews the Affordable Care Act: why he pursued it, what it has effected, and how the health care system can still be improved. ]

"The ACA has succeeded in sharply increasing insurance coverage. Since the ACA became law, the uninsured rate has declined by 43%, from 16.0% in 2010 to 9.1% in 2015," "Early evidence indicates that expanded coverage is improving access to treatment, financial security, and health for the newly insured" "The law has also greatly improved health insurance coverage for people who already had it." "Multiple sources also indicate that the overall share of health care costs that enrollees in employer coverage pay out of pocket has been close to flat since 2010"

The most timeless songs, measured using play counts on Spotify

quote [ I have a theory: No Diggity by Blackstreet is timeless. If Frank Sinatra is timeless in 2015, so too is No Diggity in 2050, fondly remembered by our children's children as the icon of the 90s. And I think that I can prove it. ]

Lots of fun graphs and data!
