Great and thoughtful Facebook post by Extinction Rebellion Scotland showing once more the importance of this movement we are able to witness. “In the last week, two widely-shared images have summed up deep-rooted problems at the heart of the Extinction Rebellion movement. One, a white man wearing a suit jacket being pulled off the top of a Tube train by people needing to get to work. In Canning Town, a mostly working ...Read More

It’s for disease prevention, the staff tell them, but in reality they are the human subjects of medical experiments. Many of the ...Read More
"The largest crowdfunding site in the world puts up a mirror to who we are and what matters most to us. Try not to look away."
Really into this call for journalists to include more solution-based narratives in tech reporting but also #Zucksucks “We need a public not only skeptical of Big Tech, but capable of navigating policy debates and ready to conceive of a technological world different from the one we live in.”

“They wear make-up under their masks. They’re young and want to look pretty. But they still want to do something for Hong Kong.”
"The average viewership metrics were not inflated by only 60%-80%; they were inflated by some 150 to 900%," and all facebook gets is a slap on the wrist...
"Simply using the term rankles. White people don’t like being called White. It’s taken as a threat that they might suffer the fate of the Other one day. Whiteness is meant to confer a kind of…"
If you are at all particularly interested in the study/cure of cancer, I highly suggest watching this very long (what some may consider "conspiracy") AIDS/cancer/autoimmune lecture that has greatly changed the way I think about cancer and common notions of disease. It will take a lot of time to watch ...Read More
