Yale Covers Up Gun in Stone Carving of Puritan, Indian

Yale University has covered up a musket on a stone carving depicting a hostile interaction between a Puritan settler and an American Indian, leaving the latter’s bow and arrow uncovered. Yale’s head librarian, Susan Gibbons, and the school’s Committee on Art in Public Spaces decided the carving’s presence at a reopened entrance to the school’s library was “not appropriate,” according to Yale Alumni Magazine. Yale announced the decision Wednesday. Gibbons said the stone covering the musket could be removed without defacing the carving. At the York Street entrance to @yalelibrary, a Puritan has been disarmed.

Clothing Suppliers Want Free Trade, Not Protectionism

A recent study shows that anti-trade rhetoric in the nation’s capital is worrying U.S. executives who represent clothing brands, retailers, importers, and wholesalers. This rhetoric should concern the rest of us, too. According to this U.S. Fashion Industry Association study, the “protectionist trade policy agenda in the United States” has emerged as the industry’s single biggest business challenge. This is a major increase from last year, when protectionism—the attempt to protect specific domestic industries from foreign competition by taxing or otherwise restricting imports bought by other Americans—was only the 10th-highest business challenge. Concerns about trade restrictions are both serious and widespread: 69 percent of respondents in the study ranked the protectionist trade policy agenda in their top five business challenges, well above the next highest-ranked concern. Furthermore, the spike in concern about protectionism coincides with … Read entire article »

WalletHub Gets It Exactly Wrong on Tax Incentives. Cronyism Is Not the Answer.

A new list that ranks states on the ease of starting a business puts Nevada at a dismal 35th using dubious methodology that drives down the state’s ranking. The culprit? “Nevada issues fewer incentives for businesses than many other states,” explained WalletHub analyst Jill Gonzalez. “Incentives were analyzed because they promote collaboration between state governments and startups.” No, WalletHub, that’s not how this works. That’s not how any of this works. First of all, tax incentives and government favors aren’t a good measure of how easy it is to start a business. In fact, they have nothing to do with it, and might even suggest the existence of an environment hostile to startups. The most favorable characteristics of a pro-startup environment are low taxes and regulations, transparent processes, and a simple and efficient permitting process. When states … Read entire article »

Why This Veteran With Terminal Brain Cancer Opposes Legalizing Assisted Suicide

A veteran is using his personal experiences to battle both physician-assisted suicide and terminal brain cancer to protect other patients. “In 2014, when I was diagnosed with a terminal form of brain cancer, the doctors gave me four months to live. They basically told me to go home and enjoy the time I had left,” J.J. Hanson said in a Facebook Live interview with The Daily Signal. Hanson, a former Marine, said physician-assisted suicide exploits patients’ natural depressive states, something he is familiar with. “In 2014, when I was diagnosed with a terminal form of brain cancer, the doctors gave me four months to live. They basically told me to go home and enjoy the time I had left,” he said in the video interview. Hanson defied his initial prognosis and is now president … Read entire article »
