Bwoglines: Like You Need an Excuse Edition

This thing! Go back to it.

You can go back to sleep! The end of Daylight Savings has delivered another sweet sixty minutes to your day, so it’s now an hour earlier than you thought it was. Though it happens every year, one national news outlet or another perennially feels the need to narrate the history of this curious organizational phenomenon. The fundamental story is the same: the spread of long-distance rail travel meant that cities and states across America had to be integrated into one schedule to accomodate locomotive operations. In March the New York Times focused on the spread of time-keeping in early America, while today, the Chicago Tribune offers a fascinating sketch of a growing rift between urban and rural populations at the dawn of the 20th century.

Anyway here are some things for you to ponder, for whenever you decide to wake up:

Why do science and engineering majors have such a high rate of attrition? (NYT)

What should Occupy Wall Street do now? (Slate)

How can so many people run so many miles? (Gothamist)

Justin Bieber’s paternity suit?! (Guardian)

Should Columbia be more diverse? (Spec)
