I sent in my DNA for a personalized nutritional blueprint. Here's what happened. - The Washington Post
Habit, based in the San Francisco Bay area, tests for biomarkers and genetic variants using samples you provide, then generates a personalized report about how your body responds to food. It’s your unique “nutrition blueprint.” Then the company pairs you with a nutrition coach and offers you custom-made meals, containing your ideal ratio of carbs, fats and protein, delivered to your home. All in the name of sending you on the path to a new you.

I had to see for myself. So I endured the home test and shipped off my blood and DNA samples. (Gulp.) Then the company’s chief executive walked me through the results of my newfound eater identity, and I observed how the diagnosis began to affect my relationship with food. Here’s what happened — and what it could mean for the future of eating in America.

Ghent's Quick Rise as a Sustainable, Commons-Based Sharing City
" A new research report (in Dutch) shows that within the last 10 years, the city [of Ghent, Belgium] has seen a ten-fold increase in local commons initiatives. The report defines commons as any "shared resource, which is co-owned or co-governed by a community of users and stakeholders, under the rules and norms of that community.""

"Despite the plethora of commons projects that are there, however, the commons-based economy is still relatively small. The report concludes with a series of 23 proposals for actions the city could take to support and strengthen the urban commons in Ghent. Much of the recommendations are aimed at addressing the underlying problem that the researchers identify - that the movement is very fragmented."

Introduction to Federal Investigation - scioscribe - Community (TV) [Archive of Our Own]
Summary: The ATF has questions about how some explosions on Greendale's campus tie into the local rumors of a cult led by Troy Barnes. The study group has answers.
Sort of.
Q: So, wait, Troy Barnes was a knowing participant in the cult’s activities during the period leading up to—

A: I didn’t say that.

Q: But you said—

A: No, you’re over-interpreting. It was just a typical flash-forward. A cheap device used by authors who don’t trust their stories to gather narrative momentum on their own. All you know is that two months after Troy got his class schedule, he woke me up in the middle of the night with urgent, unspecified news of some kind of epiphany. It didn’t really give you any useful information, flash-forwards never do. That’s why they’re unrealistic and trite. Who wants to keep checking in on a future where people are never exactly talking about whatever’s just happened?

Q: Then why offer to do it?

A: I’m always vulnerable to formal experimentation. Remind me to tell you about the time I made a film about the life of Jesus.
