This sounds like the book I just read. I'm pretty sure it is. It's called The day the world came to town. Great read.

If you ever get a chance, read Yvon Chouinard's (founder of Patagonia) book Let My People Go Surfing. It will give you a good insight as to how he thinks and how the company Patagonia is run.

For example, they were one of the first, if not the first company to make a daycare center within the headquarters.

The reason for the title of the book was, he couldn't expect his employees to be thinking about working on a day that had nice waves, so he created flex time and let his employees take time off to go do the things they loved.

Agree. It was a terrifying time, and is still I presume for people that share space with these tigers. There's a wonderful documentary out there about how people have adapted to living with tigers in the mangroves (sunderbans)

For folks that enjoy reading, there are fantastic books about man-eating tigers. Man-eaters of Kumaon. See related items for others at this link

Let's see...

Tiny SoMo towns...

I'm gonna go with either:

1- Springfieldia
2- Nixa
3- Bransonia
4- Willow Springs
5- West Plains
6- Poplar Bluff
7- Cape

If you aren't around any of those, you are way into the sticks.

Anyhoo, you should totally read some Vance Randolph. He knows the Ozarks far too well. His two best:

Dr. Atul Gawande, who is a surgeon who also writes for the New Yorker, wrote a book called The Checklist Manifesto. It's about how the use of checklists, which are drawn from the aviation community, can do a lot to reduce complications in healthcare. It's an interesting read.

Counterpoint: Charity done for PR can often be worse than useless.

Now, it's POSSIBLE for charity to help - but making a positive difference overall is actually really damn hard, and someone in it for their ego or public image is not doing the work to make sure their actions are helpful.

The lesson is, don't judge someone when the check gets signed. Judge it only when they've done the follow-up later on and proven it really helped; THEN you can give them credit. And if they never follow up and check the consequences of their actions? Fuck 'em. They're wasting your time and everyone else's.

>No such book exists.

One of the leading Christian apologists worldwide, Ravi Zacharias, has a book that is specifically intended to be a counterargument to Harris's The End of Faith. It's called [The End of Reason] ( and it's only the most obvious contradiction to your statement. It's short, easy to grasp, and makes one-sided arguments, so I'm sure you'll really like it.

This. Read a book about this for my company's book club recently, for anyone who's interested in even more detail. The Broken Ladder, by Keith Payne:

>And as I said, I do not believe 10/15 to be a significant difference in applications to be indicative of racism, particularly when these applications are garbage data flooding a hiring managers desk with identical resumes.

Care to give a quantitative, statistical reason as to why that's not a significant difference? Because otherwise, your notion that it's the result of flooding an employer with identical resumes is bunk. How would that lead to white candidates getting more call-backs?

> If you cannot provide them that's fairly indicative that it is not easily verifiable, no?

Here's a start. Please let me know how each one of these fails to meet your exacting standards:
