End of January Weekend Links

It's unseasonably warm here, but you won't hear me complain.  Here are some good stories to sit out in the sun and enjoy:

Buffalo  and Wide Right, Broken Hearts and No Illusions - SB Nation

A Guy Like Me - The Players' Tribune

How Prince Sammons Came To America - Cincinnati Magazine  

The world's first robot-run farm will harvest 30,000 heads of lettuce daily - Tech Insider

Legal Beef - Texas Monthly

Scientists Are Building a Case For How Food Ads Make Us Overeat - The Salt.  Food ads are about the only commercials that work on me.  That's probably why I am very poorly dressed but also fat.

Math whizzes of ancient Babylon figured out forerunner of calculus - Science Magazine

The Man Who Tried to Kill Math in America - The Atlantic

The Crusade Against Multiple Regression Analysis - Edge

Big Agriculture Gets Its Sh*t Together - Fortune.  Fair Oak Farms.  Interesting anecdote from Wayne Pacelle to open the story.  Farmers who hate Pacelle are totally over-matched.
