+Mark Anthony Neal  Safe to say the "identity" part supports the social sciences? I can recommend it to my students in any case, but an overt connection is sometimes better in my neck of the woods.

"The National Museum of African American History and Culture, which is set to open next fall in Washington, D.C., has  started collecting banners and posters from the #Ferguson protests, as well as gas masks donned by protesters and cell phone videos taken at the various demonstrations. NPR's Scott Simon spoke with the museum's director, Lonnie Bunch, about why he decided to start gathering items from the Ferguson protests and the subsequent #BlackLivesMatter movement."-- +NPR

"Poverty, crime, and urban blight are words often used to describe Gary, Indiana. But do these words accurately reflect the present city or its promise? Do they capture the legacy and the lives of its residents? Does a focus on the city’s trials overshadow its triumphs? This 60 minute documentary, directed by Vanderbilt University Professor Sandra L. Barnes and narrated by actor Avery Brooks, candidly depicts the two faces of Gary, Indiana -the current problems facing this once thriving rust-belt metropolis as well as the progress and possibilities evident among its people, churches, and communities. The film also shows some of the tensions Gary faces as it reconciles its past, transforms its present, and charts its future."- +Vanderbilt University

White Supremacy is a female dog in heat. They just change the law when things are not going their wind-blown way.
If it is economics; and it is... Embrace the block chain protocol (re: Crypto-currency).
And above all stop all this world-wide trade deal(s) finagling.

'Residents of a Detroit suburb are facing a one-time tax hit, with property owners paying nearly $200 to the city. Why? To cover a settlement reached between the city and Floyd Dent, a man police violently beat during a traffic stop earlier this year. Manila Chan of RT America  has more details.' -- +RT America

"Are your family trips an exercise in pleasure or comfort? Behavior economics guru and Duke University Professor Dan Ariely notes that there's a vivid difference between the two... and it may mean the difference between a fantastic vacation and one that's just okay. Ariely's new book is titled Irrationally Yours: On Missing Socks, Pickup Lines, and Other Existential Puzzles."-- +Big Think

The inter-generational and inter-philosophical mix of the event is awe-inspiring.

'8-year-old Zion Harvey is the first child to receive a double hand transplant thanks to surgeons at the Children’s Hospital of Philadelphia and Penn Medicine. The surgery – so far a success – comes years after a bacterial infection that left Zion without both hands and feet, and in need of a kidney transplant.' -- +AJ+
