Good old days (?????): Dans les champs par Jules Dupré

Intello Labs, the computer visionaries of food quality control

For most shoppers, it is easy to spot the squelchy, sad-looking tomatoes
marooned on the back of the shelf. Subtle traits in color, feel, smell,
or texture swiftly drive reactions like, “ah, well: they’re discounted and
still edible; I guess I’ll still buy them,” or, “it’s definitely past its
best, so I’ll find another batch somewhere else,” or even, “those tomatoes
are so awful, you can’t even throw them at a medieval criminal languishing
in the stocks; this is the last time I shop here.”

Intermarriage in the U.S. 50 Years After Loving v. Virginia

In 2015, 17% of all U.S. newlyweds had a spouse of a different race or
ethnicity, marking more than a fivefold increase since 1967, when 3% of
newlyweds were intermarried, according to a new Pew Research Center analysis
of U.S. Census Bureau data. In that year, the U.S. Supreme Court in the
Loving v. Virginia case ruled that marriage across racial lines was legal
throughout the country. Until this ruling, interracial marriages were
forbidden in many states.
