Consider Brice Frillici's SEKDEK the official harbinger of how your children (and/or grandchildren) will be dressing to shock you. (Yes, these are disturbing, but in a "monstery" way, not a patently violent way.) (You have to keep clicking/touching the homepage images to see the next ones. Bad UI, I know...)

"The autism pandemic, in other words, is an optical illusion, one brought about by an original sin of diagnostic parsimony."

Hat tip to +David Dobbs. 
A science journalist’s reading of medical history suggests that the “autism pandemic” is an optical illusion.

I called the Department of Justice line (202-353-1555) and asked for an independent investigation of #SandraBland's death. Would you join the effort?

"...GMO segregation, in the form of labels or GMO-free restaurants, is misguided. GMO labels don’t clarify what’s in your food. They don’t address the underlying ingredients—pesticides, toxins, proteins—that supposedly make GMOs harmful. They stigmatize food that’s perfectly safe, and they deflect scrutiny from non-GMO products that have the same disparaged ingredients."

A long read, but a must-read.
Is genetically engineered food dangerous? Many people seem to think it is. In the past five years, companies have submitted more than 27,000 products to the Non-GMO Project, which certifies goods that are free of genetically modified organisms. Last year, sales of such products nearly tripled. Whole Foods will soon...

I added my name to the list of the many who agree that real justice demands no less than an independent investigation.

Love or hate the technology (full disclosure (?): I'm a fan), industrial GMOs are so effective that they've apparently become a nexus of Chinese business (& gov't?) espionage, one that our own gov't treats as seriously as, say, theft of nuclear-tech secrets.

John Deere hat tip to...Gov. Howard Dean!
The farm-by-farm fight between China and the United States to dominate the global food supply.

"Social science research is clear that white-black inequalities today are substantially the result of a majority of whites socially inheriting unjust enrichments (money, land, home equities, social capital, etc.) from numerous previous white generations — the majority of whom benefited from the racialized slavery system and/or the de jure (Jim Crow) and de facto overt racial oppression that followed slavery for nearly a century, indeed until the late 1960s." - Sociologist Joe Feagin

If the medium is the message, the message is we're people who unnecessarily constrain our thinking.

"In conversations around the world, extremist Muslims, Jews, Hindus, and Buddhists, as well as some on the far right and far left of U.S. politics—have all featured similar arguments. The stories usually involve a nefarious plot by outsiders to destroy their culture or faith, or future. They say they have had to act in self-defense. As the victims of the plot, they have no choice but to respond."
The largest DNA-identification project ever conducted provides unprecedented proof of the slaughter at Srebrenica. But 20 years later, too many people claim it never happened.

"I'm in the walking around and laying on stuff business. It's insanely competitive." 
Humans Of New York, the wildly popular blog that features photos of random everyday New Yorkers along with some of their quotes, has one fatal flaw – no cats. Comedian Jim Tews has set out to solve this with his Felines Of New York (FONY) blog, where he collects photos of New York's cats and writes introspective and meaningful captions for them, much like those often found on HONY.
