For some reason the “social progressivism is killing the NBA” narrative has been quiet lately. (The funny thing is there is a decent argument that this merely reflects a different way of counting viewers, but that would require knowing what you’re writing about.)

Svalbard, between mainland Norway and the North Pole, has some of the world’s most isolated and arresting wildernesses. But it has warmed more than twice as quickly as the rest of the Arctic — and its skiing, hiking and dogsledding will never be the same.

The @nytimes sports page thinks its readers are more interested, by far, in Real Madrid than in the Real Yankees in New York City. Yankees and Mets baseball games are almost invisible. Not even the scores are printed in the Times suburban sports edition anymore. Go figure. -R

NYT's nifty new inflation calculator says my personal inflation rate is 7.9% My @NYTimesGuild colleagues and I have had 0% pay increases since March 2020. It's time for NYT to stop stalling on wage talks and pay us what we're worth.

UFC running an ad for a Daily Wire movie starring Gina Carano and Cowboy Cerrone is pretty funny.
