Donald Trump is the leader of a new, hate-filled authoritarian movement. Nothing would be more harmful to the idea of the West and world peace than if he were to be elected president. George W. Bush's America would seem like a place of logic and reason in comparison.

Where My Country Gone?

This episode strikes so many points in a very timely manner that it's hard no to recommend it to anyone who likes when Matt and Trey goes into more societal and less funny topics.

If these narratives where not in Southpark then these should be on television with the news.

I laughed so much, a brilliant way to present the topic.
Part 1 of 2. The thing that neither the dictionary nor fake procrastinators understand is that for a real procrastinator, procrastination isn't optional—it's something they don't know how to not do.

“Amazon is where overachievers go to feel bad about themselves.”

Article on working at Amazon. It seems dreadfull and inspiring at the same time.
The company is conducting an experiment in how far it can push white-collar workers to get them to achieve its ever-expanding ambitions.

I love when article designs really complement stories. They make a nice difference in how you process the article.
A Chinese entrepreneur who took just just 19 days to build a 57-storey tower says he has triggered a construction revolution. And his dreams soar far, far higher.

"Let me tell you about the very rich. They are different from you and me... They think, deep in their hearts, that they are better than we are...”

All too often that seems to be true for people of questionable motives and value systems.
High earners only give less when they perceive high inequality where they live.

"There’s a lot that modern cartographers could learn from the way these maps were made."
The Soviet military mapped the entire world, but few have seen the actual, physical maps—until now.

"Go ahead, be sarcastic" 
Despite sarcasm’s nasty reputation, new research finds that it can boost creativity and problem-solving in the workplace.

"Saying yes to everything all the time will turn you into a very happy flake who never accomplishes much.

Saying no to everything but your work will make you a miserable, lonely expert."

If we were brainwashed in our sleep not to be racist - whould thad be a good thing?
Sleep-based deprogramming is more than an Orwellian-style fantasy.
