Interesting. I knew it was less regressive than some other countries in that area, but this adds details.

Like almost every boxing figure before him, Manny Pacquiao came from a life of grinding poverty. It is this history—the intimate shared reality of suffering and struggle—that the vast majority Filipinos identify with.

 Barutag boxed two matches, winning one by knockout. In his third fight he was beaten unconscious in the eighth round and died. Pacquiao took his place in an upcoming fight. He stood 4 foot 11 and weighed in at 98 pounds. He had to put scraps of metal in his shoes to reach the needed minimum weight.

As more people discover what it’s like to be on the receiving end of a caustic online mob, public shaming is replaced by empathy.

Ronson had some interesting things to say during his "City Arts and Lectures" interview on stage, some of which may be in his book (I need to get it)--basically, empathy and forgiveness shown towards the shamed person helps them recover and grow.
Too often we seem to act like we want to permanently ostracize people who do various social transgressions or even crimes.  While I believe some people may be incorrigible, that's not an excuse for treating everyone as incorrigible.  (I know this is easily tied into death penalty banning.)  It's not just the shamed person who can grow through this process either.
(Unfortunately, CA&L airings are not archived online, due to a quirk of the sponsor, but if you do get to hear this, it's much more relaxed and informative than his bits on This American Life (which are also fun).  They also talked about Men Who Stare at Goats...he did like the movie, and had some appreciation for the adaptation the movie makers made.)

"It's a little-known fact, but we reporters could successfully sell Sanders or Elizabeth Warren or any other populist candidate as a serious contender for the White House if we wanted to. Hell, we told Americans it was okay to vote for George Bush, a man who moves his lips when he reads."
Bernie Sanders is more serious than you think

+Janet Mackie Fox is one of my favorite examples of news hypocrisy. If they just changed their motto to "unfair and unbalanced", I would hardly ever quibble with what they claim.

When a handcuffed Freddie Gray was placed in a Baltimore police van on April 12, he was talking and breathing. When the 25-year-old emerged, "he could not talk and he could not breathe," according to one police official, and he died a week later of a spinal injury.

You'd think the police themselves would've insisted on cameras being installed long ago in the van to protect themselves from "frivolous lawsuits", if in fact they weren't giving rough rides.

Whatever gets destroyed...because Stark fucked it up. I'll stick with Cap and the Widow, who are a whole lot more dependable than Tony, Thor, or the Hulk.

Tips for men who want to try Zumba
I just saw  Talking with Zumba-loving Joe Minoso of ‘Chicago Fire’ fame | Radio and TV Talk : Joe Minoso five years ago was a 300-pound depressed, out-of-work actor. But then the Chicago resident found, of all things, Zumba. He fell in love with that joyous...

Was reading a chick-lit novel today and one character was introduced as on her way to Zumba. Naturally, I thought of you.
