Democracy is Good, Actually | Very Important Docs²⁵

Democracy is Good, Actually | Very Important Docs²⁵

– Democracy is great, I mean it would be if only people were smart. but the problem is that people are just so stupid. If you try and tell people the facts they just fart right in your face. They use non-specific words like “stuff” and “things” and they wear pajamas to Walmart. Morons! Allow me to hallucinate the perfunctory manner in which the quintessential every day people perform their general malaise. Big words! The average person gets up every…

Why conspiratorial thinking is peaking in America | Sarah Rose Cavanagh

Why conspiratorial thinking is peaking in America | Sarah Rose Cavanagh

Rather than look at reality and agree on one whole reality we’re becoming a society where we have these different groups that believe in different realities. And that is a big part of political polarization where people don’t just agree about their opinions, disagree about the opinions about a series of facts but they disagree about whether the facts are actually true. But we can also see it in conspiracy thinking where these fringe groups, or at least they used…

Small Business Revolution Documentary | The Entrepreneurial Spirit of America

(Herjavec) One of my favorite sayings is that the business of America is business. It is still the greatest country in the world to come to these shores and start a small business.

Meet The Millennial That’s Disrupting Sneakerhead Culture

I’ve always been kind of a doodler and a drawer. Two years ago when I was working at an agency in the city, I made my CEO a pair of sneakers. It kind of grew from there. I always was this female thinker and creator in this male space that I said to myself, why can’t the two be together? Being connected on Instagram and online has enhanced my work, my visibility, and it’s enhanced my ability to collaborate. The…

Barack Obama takes on ‘woke’ call-out culture: ‘That’s not activism’

you know this idea of purity and you’re never compromised and you’re always politically woke and all that stuff, you should get over that quickly. The world is messy, there are ambiguities. People who do really good stuff have flaws. People who you are fighting may love their kids and share certain things with you and I think that one danger I see among young people and particularly among college campuses – Malia and I talk about this, Yara goes…

Translator: Imamali Dadashzada Reviewer: Denise RQ In 2013, riding the wave of Google Flu Trends, our research group found that Google search queries from Thailand could actually be predictive of the number of cases of malaria in Thailand. But what would happen when we looked a little bit closer is we found that some of the key queries that were matching what happened in terms of the number of cases, actually had to do with microscopes and not malaria.
