Sputnik I—The Beeps Heard Round The World

by Christopher R. O’Deavia Military History in the News
Thursday, October 10, 2019

The Space Age opened in October 1957 when the Soviet Union’s Sputnik I became the first satellite to orbit the earth. Launched during the International Geophysical Year, Sputnik I orbited earth every 96 minutes for 21 days, traveling more than 40 million miles as it transmitted a steady beep signal that was soon recorded and broadcast to American radio listeners. The satellite itself was visible to viewers in the United States during dawn and twilight, providing directly observable evidence that the United States—for the moment at least—was trailing its chief geopolitical rival in the emerging technology that would define the balance of power in an era of nuclear stand-off.

A Harvard Law Professor Examines The Hoffa Case To Make Amends

featuring Jack Goldsmithvia Law & Liberty
Friday, October 11, 2019

In Hoffa’s Shadow is a memoir of growing up, a reinvestigation of one of the most notorious murders in American history, and a reflection on Jimmy Hoffa’s effect on the labor movement. The first two aspects are linked by the extraordinary fact that the author is the stepson of the man most often accused of driving Hoffa to his death. The book is even more noteworthy by virtue of the not less extraordinary fact that the author is also a distinguished law professor, Jack Goldsmith of Harvard University.

Male Uber Drivers Earn More And It's Not Due To Discrimination

by David R. Hendersonvia EconLog
Tuesday, February 6, 2018

The growth of the "gig" economy generates worker flexibility that, some have speculated, will favor women. We explore one facet of the gig economy by examining labor supply choices and earnings among more than a million rideshare drivers on Uber in the U.S. Perhaps most surprisingly, we find that there is a roughly 7% gender earnings gap amongst drivers. The uniqueness of our data--knowing exactly the production and compensation functions--permits us to completely unpack the underlying determinants of the gender earnings gap. We find that the entire gender gap is caused by three factors: experience on the platform (learning-by-doing), preferences over where/when to work, and preferences for driving speed.
