The games have yet to start, we have no idea how they're going to play out, there are tens of thousands of unsold tickets and the traffic management plan is a desperate plea to Torontonians not to drive to work for a month.  Somehow this means each of the 53 executives deserves an average of $107K in bonuses.  Not so say that they're not deserving but should we not wait until the games are done to be dolling out bonuses?
TORONTO – The upcoming Pan Am Games in Toronto are still proving to be a windfall for dozens of executives involved in planning what’s billed as the largest multi-sport event ever held in Canada. While the bonus pool for executives on the TO2015 Games’ organizing committee has been reduced from $7 million to $5.7 million, …

A very interesting article about policy and legal scope creep. There is a really delicate balance between laws that are sufficiently detailed that they don't get applied beyond their intended scope and laws that are sufficiently simple that they can be understood and allow for society to evolve while the laws stay relevant and useful.

Title IX seems like it had struck the wrong balance based on this case. After reading about this professor's ordeal I can only assume that Kafka would be proud to know how prescient he was. 
As feminist student activists fight to expand their circle of vulnerability in collegiate life, Title IX has gone from a law designed to protect college students from sexual misconduct and discrimination to a means by which professors are put on trial for their tweets.

PBR and plaid were fine but if hipsters could draw the line of what they find ironically funny at Truck Balls then I think we'd all be better for it.

This is awesome. A great example of how bias pervades our existence.

There is something inherently frightening about this exercise. Watching as Destin struggles to return to "normal" bike riding is a reminder that so much of our concept of normal is simply practice and/or what we're used to. Guess this kind of explains prejudices and is a good reminder to consider how we behave as role models especially for children. Nice share +Adam Green​

There's just nothing good about what happened in Texas ... Or Baltimore ... Or Ferguson. Force of any kind is supposed to be at the end of the police engagement process but it seems to be the first thing used way too often. I wonder why that is. What could be going on in the police departments that would lead so many officers to strike first and talk second?
Many have been quick to dismiss or make excuses for the shocking video out of Texas. Here's the truth of the matter

This makes me happy for some reason. 
This comic shows estimated average frequency. I wanted to include the pitch drop experiment, but it turns out the gif format has some issues with decade-long loops. |< · < ? > >|. Preorder: Amazon, Barnes & Noble, Indie Bound, Hudson · Archive · Store · What If? About.

At this point I think we should just rename road biking "professional cheating" and the yellow jersey should be given to the team that can cheat the most. 
The UCI made headlines back in March for checking several dozen bikes for hidden motors at Milan-San Remo. Many fans laughed off the incident as a ridiculous waste of time, somewhat prematurely perhaps. Concealing a motor in the frame of a road bike isn't just possible, there are products on the ...

Dr. Awadia was fantastic. My eye exam was quick, accurate and educational. She explained what she was doing and why and how my eyes had changed. Irene helped me pick out the perfect frames from a Spanish manufacturer I have never seen anywhere else and my lenses were ready way faster than I thought.

A very stylish hotel with a fantastic location and friendly staff. The staff provided great restaurant and bar recommendations which was very handy as many of the places in the area are overly expensive tourist traps.

Need a fast lunch? Go here and thank me later. The curry lamb wrap is unbelievably good. Ravi was an amazing chef and the world is better for having known him. I hope his family (who run the place after he died earlier this year) keep up his legacy.

Betty's has the best service in the city. They always do whatever they can to find you a table. Prompt, friendly, honest with just enough edge to always feel like a bar. If you're looking for a pint and a bite look no further.

Among the best Thai places I've ever been. This is a perpetual tie for #1 in Toronto along with Sukothai.
