The H-1B visa lottery system is under increasing attack for lack of transparency and even violation of existing laws governing it: following the lawsuit last month by two business immigration groups which wanted the US government to produce documents showing how the visa distribution process works, now two private firms have filed a lawsuit in Oregon because their candidates they were sponsoring failed to get visa.

Covering wars for a polarized nation has destroyed the civic mission I once found in journalism. Why risk it all to get the facts for people who increasingly seem only to seek out the information they want and brand the stories and facts that don’t conform to their opinions as biased or inaccurate?
"This wasn’t my country, it wasn’t my war, and now I would die for it in a horrible way."

My new favorite podcast. David Goldstein and his associates at Civic Skunk Works explore the nexus between politics and public policy from a Washington State perspective. 
When Nick Hanauer first brought up the idea of raising the minimum wage to $15 an hour, many (including Forbes magazine), called his theory insane. In this episode, we talk with civic leaders about the adoption of Seattle’s revolutionary $15 minimum wage and why this (not-so) crazy idea has spread across the country.

Umpqua Bank is backing some seriously cool public art projects lately! This exhibit "Growth" will be on display in Seattle's Westlake Park Sept. 25-Oct. 4.
Exhibit:Growth is an interactive, immersive exploration of human potential. Inside a stunning geodesic dome, you’ll choreograph a unique visual expression via large-scale, motion-activated digital technology.

Researchers looked at Facebook and the spread of both conspiracy and unsupported "alternative" theories, such as climate doubt or the idea that vaccines cause autism, and scientific news. They found highly segregated, insular communities around each type of content.
Researchers say polarized clusters they call “echo chambers” help spread and support attitudes such as doubt about climate change.
