No, Ilhan Omar Wasn't Taken Out of Context

Bob Murphy critiques an article by Conor Friedersdorf, in which Friedersdorf mocks the right-wing outrage over Rep. Ilhan Omar's 9/11 remarks as a tempest in a teapot. Why, if someone on the right made a similar slip of the tongue, Friedersdorf would expect the right-winger to be forgiven. This is of course ludicrous nonsense, as Bob explains.

4 Logos and mythos

An interesting perspective on the distinction between religious belief and scientific understanding has been provided by Karen Armstrong, who relates them to two complementary modes of human thinking, both with ancient pedigrees and given the classical Greek names of 'logos' and 'mythos'. The former deals with the practical understanding of how nature works, and has long been used to advantage in, say, agriculture and technology. Although this mode of thinking, as exemplified by

1 What this course is about

The recent huge increases in ownership of home computers and ever-widening access have been obvious boons to many peoples' lives but, as with many things that improve life, there is a downside.

The Economist asks: Is Brexit a disaster for trade?
On the day Britain leaves the EU it will be withdrawn from hundreds of treaties. The newly elected government will strive hard to find new trade deals and renegotiate old ones. Will it find success or is the task too enormous? The Economist's Anne McElvoy and Callum Williams speak to former trade envoy, Lord Marland, about Brexit and why he thinks trade deals are not important.

1.2.3 Working with percentages

Table 1 used percentages, rather than actual numbers, to compare the number of people using the internet for each purpose. Numbers are expressed as if they are 'out of a hundred' when using percentages, which makes it easier to compare different values. You can recognise percentages by the % symbol which you can see at the top of the right-hand column of Table 1.

As you can see from halfway down the table, 50% of the people who had used the internet in the previous 3 months used it for

5.3.2 Productivity difference

The preceding discussion has only considered what would happen if all women undertake less investment in human capital than men. If men and women invest to the same extent, human capital theory suggests that no wage differences would be observed. What happens, however, if there are differences in skill levels both between genders and within gender groups? To consider this we will also make the additional assumption that firms do not know when recruiting workers who are the most productive. Ho

6.7 Intrinsic aids

Intrinsic aids are matters within an Act itself which may help make the meaning clearer. The court may consider the long title, the short title and any preamble. Other useful internal aids may include headings before a group of sections and any schedules attached to the Act. There are also often marginal notes explaining different sections; however, these are not generally regarded as giving Parliament's intention as they will have been inserted after parliamentary debates and are only helpfu

2.1.1 Probability ratios

Probability calculations are important in many branches of science, but nowhere more so than in genetics. Box 4 describes early work in the field and provides some illustrative data, based on plant-breeding experiments.

Before working with these data, it is important to understand how the results have been presented. Raw data from breeding experiments come in terms of descriptions and numbers, as with the examples given in Box 4, but results are often reported by expressing the numbers
