Modern-day slavery exists — and it’s making immigrants’ lives a nightmare
  
Each year, scores of people are lured to the United States by the promise of a green card, a steady job and the chance of a new start. A prospective employer tells them that the opportunities are endless, that their families will thank them, that the only place to go is up. 
 
But here’s the sad reality that no one seems to be talking about: Each year, these immigrants become victims of labor trafficking. They perform their jobs under force, fraud or coercion. They face pay that is less than minimum wage or less than they were promised. In order to keep them trapped, employers often use extortion, sexual abuse, psychological manipulation, torture and violence.
 
The criminality of labor trafficking is a parallel to slavery | Follow micdotcom

Watch: One video highlights the ugly truth about America’s #Ebola overreaction
  
In an effort to combat some of the wholly unnecessary racialization of a public health crisis, one Liberian-American woman released a video titled “I Am a Liberian, Not a Virus.”
 
Solomon, a TV presenter, said she was prompted to make a public stand following a conversation recently with her daughter. The girl came home from school upset because she’d been told, “You’re from Liberia, so you have a disease.”

3 brilliant innovators that should get movies other than Steve Jobs 
  
1. Ada Lovelace
 
For anyone who cares about gender diversity in technology, Ada Lovelace is a hero. Lovelace, the English mathematician and writer (who was also a countess!), is credited with writing the “the first computer algorithm — a century before the first electronic computer was up and running” all the way back in 1842.
 
When Lovelace was 17, she met famous inventor and engineer Charles Babbage. She gained fame for adding several pages worth of notes to one of his articles that described how to make codes on his analytical machine. Lovelace also, as Biography explained, “theorized a method for the engine to repeat a series of instructions, a process known as looping that computer programs use today,” which made her the world’s first computer programmer.
 
How about the highest-paid female executive in America who was assigned male at birth?

It’s official: 2014 will be the most expensive midterm election cycle ever.
 
Candidates and the “outside groups” who love them are on track to spend nearly $4 billion, according to an analysis by the Center for Responsive Politics. This represents an explosion of spending that should worry anyone concerned about the corrupting influence of money in politics.
 
Sound like a waste of money? It sure did to us. So we came up with more worthwhile things to spend that $4 billion on. | Follow micdotcom

Frank Gehry Says Architecture Today Is "Pure Shit"
Show all
"Let me tell you one thing. In this world we are living in, 98 percent of everything that is built and designed today is pure shit. There's no sense of design, no respect for humanity or for anything else. They are damn buildings and that's it. Once in a while, however, there's a small group of people who does something special. Very few. But good god, leave us alone! We are dedicated to our work. I don't ask for work. I don't have a publicist. I'm not waiting for anyone to call me. I work with clients who respect the art of architecture. Therefore, please don't ask questions as stupid as that one." - Todd Hoff from Bookmarklet
Ironic given some of what he has made. I find his designs lack a principle that would define architecture. - Todd Hoff
Contemporary architecture just isn't quality stuff. What we need are buildings that look like crumpled pieces of paper: http://www.thecityreview.com/gehry... :-P - John (bird whisperer)
