Kudos to the Washington Post for telling the truth behind the picture worth a thousand false words that Time opted to use for its cover.

.
"The widely shared photo of the little girl crying as a U.S. Border Patrol agent patted down her mother became a symbol of the families pulled apart by the Trump administration’s “zero tolerance” policy at the border, even landing on the new cover of Time magazine.

"But the girl’s father told The Washington Post on Thursday night that his child and her mother were not separated, and a U.S. Customs and Border Protection spokesman confirmed that the family was not separated while in the agency’s custody."

This is not really surprising, especially the differences in perceptions of which media outlets are biased. However, I do think the WSJ generally deserves higher rankings and am surprised it would be as low as only 2 for the people they identify as in the conservative camp and 24 for those they identify as Democrats. It make me wonder if there was something in the way the questions were presented. Also I wonder at the inclusion of some things and the exclusion of others altogether here.

Which indications of age discrimination have you encountered? Please share. #agediscrimination
I've seen overt ones with job descriptions that include "young" as requirement. I've seen more subtle ones that include the kind of perks associated with younger workers. But the real kicker comes in the form of assessing your resume and then to say that you're too senior for the position they have in mind without even asking if you'd work for the salary range they have in mind.

How to disqualify people a recruiter qualified for the job without bothering to talk to them? Just tell them to tell the candidates that was described as a position suitable for someone with 5 years experience is now "mid-level," which you are defining as under 5 years experience. I asked if this was about getting the salary down, which I could understand. But that's not what they said: "Specifically for this role, we’re classifying mid-level as 3-5 years of professional experience. Often if a client is looking for this level, they are concerned that somebody with a decade plus experience will get bored in the role and leave, as we see that happen often. "
Really? What about one's own work history, which shows staying at a job for years at a time? Those with 3-5 years experience are much more likely to have jumped ship every 1-2 years. The real story here is #agediscrimination

"Justice’s statement says Michigan’s “failure to bind itself to controlling definitions” of terms like bullying and harassment “effects ‘an unrestricted delegation of power’ to University officials” and “opens up precisely the risk of ‘arbitrary, discriminatory and overzealous enforcement’ that the First Amendment forbids.” The “reduction of ‘bias incidents’ to the listener’s ‘own feelings’ . . . likewise violates the First Amendment because it is not ‘based on speech at all’ but on ‘a listener’s reaction to speech,’” Justice wrote.

This is the first time the federal government has weighed in on Bias Response Teams, but more than 200 universities have similar administrative offices. The Justice Department’s statement puts these other universities on notice."

Very interesting. I learned about GAN at a NYC Media Lab event sponsored by Bloomberg, and submitted an article awaiting publication. Here, the AI is used to fill in eyes. https://techcrunch.com/2018/06/16/facebooks-new-ai-research-is-a-real-eye-opener/
