"Unlike the number crunchers, Freedom House knows how to tell a story. And in the world of international human rights advocacy, one good story is worth a thousand finely tuned disaggregated indicators."

Freedom House’s index of freedom in the world is flawed — but the story it tells is indispensable.

When the U.S. introduced the measles vaccine, childhood deaths from all infections plummeted. Scientists think they might know why: Benefits of the measles vaccine go way beyond the measles.

"The social pressure on people of color to keep the peace, not get mad, just make sure everyone keeps having a nice time — even when we hear these remarks in public, at our workplaces and schools, in our own homes and from our friends’ mouths — can be overwhelming, bearing down on us in so many situations we do not see coming and therefore cannot avoid. What does our dignity matter, what do our feelings amount to, when we could embarrass people we care about? When our relatives or friends or colleagues might experience a moment’s discomfort, anxiety, or guilt?"
On casual racism in otherwise polite company, and the split-second deliberations that go into deciding how to respond in a no-win scenario.

The 20th century's biggest carbon emitter is also one of the few advanced democracies where climate change is not accepted as fact. This makes it hard for some to trust U.S. efforts on the issue.

Here’s why it’s time for U.S. democracy assistance to start doing some work at home.

Statistically, co-authored papers with men add 0% increase in prospects for tenure for female economists, whereas men's chances increase same as if they had solo-authored the paper.

Gun rights acivitst are going to stage a mock shootout on the UT campus... this seems like a great idea. </sarcasm> http://jezebel.com/heres-a-bad-idea-gun-rights-supporters-to-stage-mock-m-1747191728
Here’s a tremendously bad idea that no one should actually do: supporters of guns on campus are planning to stage a mock mass shooting on the University of Texas at Austin campus. The “shooter” will be taken down by other people “armed” with cardboard guns. There will be fake blood and gunshot noises played through bullhorns. Hey: this is a really fucking bad idea.
