The best links of the week:

A Hipstamatic tour through Rio’s favelas.

The invention of money.

The alternative US Army professional reading list.


Spencer Ackerman’s on a roll uncovering counterproductive Islamophobia in the FBI.

Related sentance of the week: “The line starts at 3 B.C., implying that baby Jesus was at the extreme of violence” (h/t: Ezra Klein).

Unfortunately “sixth generation fighter concept” is really just code for “someone in our office knows Photoshop.”

France’s burqa ban: women are ‘effectively under house arrest’ (h/t: Andrew Sullivan).

Another mildly disturbing look at the modeling industry: “A distinct ‘editorial’ look is one that sits ‘on the border between beautiful and ugly.'”
