Interesting links

  1. Stress levels vs hours worked. ” Countries with shorter working hours – mostly richer places – typically have high incidences of anxiety and depression.” But… it’s complicated.
  2. Liam Hehir on “crises” and how such phrasing has been overused in New Zealand political discourse of late. He basically points out that if everything is considered a crisis then, by definition, nothing is a crisis. New Zealand, like every other country on earth, is not a utopia and there are some problems but to deploy the word “crisis” in such casual terms undermines the word and doesn’t allow for serious discussion of the best means to address those issues.
  3. Libertarian party candidate Gary Johnson makes his case, in the New York Times, for why he and running mate William Weld offer Americans should be preferred to the highly unfavoured Donald Trump and Hillary Clinton. “Americans want to be able to choose a president who is capable of reason, of learning from failures, and of telling them the truth, even when it hurts. Most of all, they want to choose a president who will adhere to the Constitution and will make government live within its means.” Johnson, however, is not without his quirks.
  4. Bryce Wilkinson says New Zealand has no need for a written constitution.
  5. What’s a man to do? My former classmate Jack Fletcher goes to a Women’s Lifestyle Expo. Very funny.
  6. How to read a book a week. Good tips. Now if I could only just follow them.
