For almost six months, the Ray Rice debate had been an argument in the media, largely among men in sports circles, over domestic violence and its proper punishment. On Tuesday, his wife had a few things of her own to say, igniting a new debate.

The word podcast is 10 years old. A podcast is a (semi-)regular audio show, in episodes lasting, usually, between 15 minutes and an hour. It's often very DIY: Hosts record episodes digitally and post them online; you can download them to your device or listen on a central website.

I hope you'll read my #Inquirer piece this morning, on #Ferguson, #MichaelBrown, nd the image of the black male: http://www.inquirer.com/features/20140821_What_frames_Michael_Brown_s_image_.html
Flesh-and-blood, guns-and-gas demonstrations have continued in Ferguson, Mo., since Aug. 9, when Michael Brown, 18, was killed unarmed in a street. But a media battle is also on, a battle of images. At issue is Brown himself: Who he really was, and what his death means.

OK, kids, at a time of bleak news, here's my lighthearted #Inquirer piece this a.m. on the lovelocks of Paris: http://www.philly.com/philly/news/nation_world/20140818_The_weight_of_love_threatens_Paris_bridges.html
It's an infrastructure crisis with a social-media solution. Or so the city fathers of Paris are hoping.<br/>"Our bridges are more fragile than your love," says the official announcement.
