I'm not religious, but this is a great piece about class and religion. Religion is not just "the opiate of the masses", as Marx called it.

He says he's trying to make it as an "actress". Um, if you can't even get your own preferred gender straight in your head, how do you expect anyone else to? Come on, make your mind up about what gender you want to be and be consistent about it!

It's tough. I mean, whatever Loren is, he still lives in a culture where you're either considered a man or a woman -- there are no other choices, as far as our language is concerned. I mean, we know that gender is NOT really the most important thing about people, but our language pretty much demands that we fit them into one of two categories before we can even talk about them. 

It's a weird world.

Introducing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic

Our happiest Google+ users are those who connect with others around shared interests and passions. So we set out to give people a place to express the things they love. Today, we’re announcing Google+ Collections, a new way to group your posts by topic.

Every collection is a focused set of posts on a particular topic, providing an easy way for you to organize all the things you’re into. Each collection can be shared publicly, privately, or with a custom set of people. Once you create your first collection, your profile will display a new tab where other people can find and follow your collections.

Posts in collections you follow will appear in your Home stream, with a link to easily jump right into the collection so you can get to similar content from that author. Collections give you a great way to find more of the stuff you love from the people you follow.

Collections is available on Android and the web, and iOS is coming later. For Android users, make sure to update your Google+ app to get access to Collections.

For inspiration on interesting topics, check out our Featured Collections page here: g.co/collections

Create your collections today and share what you love.

If you have questions then also be sure to check out our Help Center content http://goo.gl/zyIVMH; if you still can’t find an answer then please post your question in the Collections subcategory. 

Best,
Moritz & Claire

This is terrible journalism designed to upset you. Google's program and the data we have are cause for great optimism, and at this point, only optimism.

Then companies presume a credit limit with you by paying in arrears weeks later as well as on demand credit line via expenses from you.    

If only Banks had to apply to you and came to you for interviews.  Then you dictate credit terms.

Life would be so much less insane :0.

In case you thought abstaining from eating honey was the weirdest kind of place that vegan / extreme vegetarian ideology takes you. Nope.
Brian Tomasik argues that consciousness is a spectrum, and even the simplest processes — like computer opponents in video games — can be conscious. It's much worse, he says, to kill an animal than a bot, but the bot still matters.

I know this guy on facebook. He is totally serious about this stuff. When I was a serious hardcore vegetarian I thought I was hardcore. No, this guy is way more hardcore than I ever was. He is nuts.

Nice article. I would like to have read more of a deep-dive into her reasons for not wanting to work at Google. Unfortunately, the article focused more on background, the risk of her chosen alternative, and her success.

The Blog Comment That Achieved an Internet Miracle
www.theatlantic.com

A nerd's attempt to engage feminists—made deep beneath an obscure blog post—spurred the debaters to recognize their mutual humanity.

The air conditioning/heating in our room was stuck on "cold", and there was no phone in the room (or heating controls!) so we kept having to go down the hall to use the phone to call them. They said they would increase the temperature and it could take 15-20mins to take effect, but we didn't notice any effect after asking them to turn it up three times! One of those times they even said they'd turn it off, but it didn't turn off! The only thing you get in the bedroom is a bed and a couple of hangars on the wall to hang your clothes on. There's no chair, and even if you pay extra for a window it's a tiny little thing, above eye level. They only provide a combination shower gel/shampoo/soap in the bathroom for all washing, and in our room the bottle kept getting stuck so it was annoying trying to get the soap out of it. That said at least the bed was comfy, the shower was small but worked well, a hairdryer was available to borrow on request from reception, and there was a thoughtful touch of a light switch on the side of the bed.
