Lately, Hollywood has been taking so much shit for rampant sexism and racism. The prevailing theme: white men dominate movie roles.

Yep - the people telling us how it is don't know how it is so it's all a surprise to them http://billmoyers.com/story/sanders-and-trump-how-the-political-and-media-establishment-got-2016-so-wrong/
Perhaps the biggest story coming out of campaign 2016 is not the rise of Bernie Sanders and Donald Trump, but the fact that the media and political establishment never saw it coming. And the fact that they never saw it coming perfectly explains the rise of Sanders and Trump. And here's why: the economic and social wreckage wrought by the Great Recession of 2007-2009, which flat lined the lives and aspirations of so many, barely registered on the ...

+1 for not making all learning group-based and noisy. Or for making work-places the same.

As the focus on group work and collaboration increases, classrooms are neglecting the needs of students who work better in quiet settings.

Fantastic campaign against the TPPA - but what does it take to be listened to? https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=kYtlPka0z3E. The situation with the TPPA isn't what people fought for when they fought for democracy, that's for sure.

Ah - so it is still worth protesting the TPPA even after NZ signs it - will apparently undermine efforts to get (crucial) support for the deal in the US Congress. Why am I not hearing about this in the mainstream media> http://thedailyblog.co.nz/2016/01/26/tppa-live-stream-exclusive-to-tdb-from-auckland-town-hall-at-7pm-tonight/

"Ashley Madison aspired to be a global network of people breaking the bonds of monogamy in the name of YOLO. Instead, it was mostly a collection straight men talking to extremely busy bots who bombarded them with messages asking for money." http://gizmodo.com/ashley-madison-code-shows-more-women-and-more-bots-1727613924
After searching through the Ashley Madison database and private email last week, I reported that there might be roughly 12,000 real women active on Ashley Madison. Now, after looking at the company’s source code, it’s clear that I arrived at that low number based in part on a misunderstanding of the evidence. Equally clear is new evidence that Ashley Madison created more than 70,000 female bots to send male users millions of fake messages, hoping...
