More Than Half of America Hasn’t Taken a Vacation in Past Year

"The survey, conducted in June, revealed that more than 135 million Americans (56%) say they haven’t taken a vacation within the past 12 months – an increase of almost 10 million from the 126 million Americans (52%) who reported no vacation over the past 12 months in 2014.
Another 15% haven’t been on vacation for seven to 12 months and 10% say it has been four to six months. Only 16% have been on vacation within the last three months."

Yet another reason that I am happy to no longer be in the workforce. Not only do y'all work harder, but you work longer. I feel your pain.

Wolfram Alpha a good addition to have besides Google.
Who answers your philosophical questions? Those big doubts you seek to unravel when stuck? I know: Google. It will send you to Wikipedia first. All credit to Jimmy Wales but you don't really want him to play a seer. So, I went hunting and asked another search engine. My question was simple — "Why?" The answer came back…

Truth. 

GOP only cares about others when wars are involved and profits to be made by exploiting foreign countries.

"Right now children are literally living in the rubble of last year's war in Gaza. Not one destroyed home has yet been totally rebuilt. These innocent kids are paying the price for a conflict they had no part in. But this week our community has a real chance to help get these kids homes, schools and health clinics. Join the urgent call with aid agencies to break the blockade and ensure that life saving materials get in, then share the link everywhere." ~ Avaaz 
Families in Gaza have been sleeping in the rubble of their homes for over a year. It doesn't have to be this way. The world has committed to help but Israel is blocking aid at the border. Join the global effort to lift the blockade and rebuild hope in Gaza.

Fox News host: Keep daughters 'home in the kitchen'

No colleges for daughters, one mother wants them to stay home in the kitchen, the other mother wants to send them to convents instead.
The hosts of Fox News' Outnumbered suggested on Tuesday that daughters could be put into convents or kept "home in the kitchen" to prevent them from getting sexually assaulted at college fraternities. After the Sigma Nu fraternity

To Jeff Bezos from Julia Cheiffetz

"Jeff: You asked for direct feedback. Women power your retail engine. They buy diapers. They buy books. They buy socks for their husbands on Prime. On behalf of all the people who want to speak up but can’t: Please, make Amazon a more hospitable place for women and parents. Reevaluate your parental leave policies. You can’t claim to be a data-driven company and not release more specific numbers on how many women and people of color apply, get hired and promoted, and stay on as employees. In the absence of meaningful public data — especially retention data — all we have are stories. This is mine."

Sorry, +Steven J Davies but if your entire team is moved out from under you that is the definition of a "demotion", which isn't supposed to happen during a maternity leave. And, yes, even small companies can handle that without reorging someone out of a job.  

As for your assumption, which is all it is, that her performance was bad after she returned, Julia has the perfect answer for that already: " You can’t claim to be a data-driven company and not release more specific numbers on how many women and people of color apply, get hired and promoted, and stay on as employees. In the absence of meaningful public data — especially retention data — all we have are stories. This is mine."

How 'Born to Run' Captured the Decline of the American Dream

Good post, how the decline for middle class started from the 70s.
 
This is a really interesting article. It doesn't just discuss the song, it goes into the time around the song as well. It's kind of a sociopolitical music history article. 
Bruce Springsteen’s breakout album embodied the lost ‘70s—the tense, political, working-class rejection of an increasingly unequal society.

Good advice from one of the commenters:

How about telling your sons not to rape?

10-Year Old Gets Bitten by Shark, Escapes, Then Jumps Back into the Water to Rescue Another Child

Kaley Szarmack is the real hero.
(Photo: News 4 Jax)10-year old Kaley Szarmack was swimming off Jacksonville Beach, Florida last Wednesday. A three-foot shark bit one of her legs--a wound that would eventually require 90 stitches. But Kaley didn't let that mere flesh wound distract her. After realizing that a 6-year old friend of the family was still in the water, she ran back out, grabbed the younger child, and pulled her in before the shark could get a bite from her, too. News...
