Child abuse cases quadruple when report cards are sent home on Fridays

Researchers discovered a four-fold increase in verified cases of child abuse when report cards were sent home on Friday as compared to other days. Corporal punishment is legal throughout America, including in many public and most private schools. A child is hit, on average, every 30 seconds in American public schools. None I certainly remember that feeling when I was young: The dreaded Friday that report cards went home. My grades were mostly good, though there would inevitably be that class I ...

Karen Pence teaches at school that bans LGBTQ kids and staff: Report

Karen Pence, wife of Vice President Mike Pence, just started a new job this week. She's an art teacher at a Christian school that makes job candidates sign a pledge not to engage in homosexual activity. Gay kids, you're not welcome either. The Pences are nothing if not consistent. Consistently horrible. Huffington Post's Rebecca Klein reports that the school where Pence now works discriminates against LGBTQ people in its job application, and doesn't want any queer kids around, either. Immanue...

Tale of two schools: Though separated by just 9 miles, effects of the strike on these campuses are very far apart

Brenda Sandoval has already taken two days off work from her job as a receptionist at a nearby mental health clinic to support the striking teachers of Telfair Elementary School in Pacoima. Depending on how long the Los Angeles Unified School District teachers’ strike lasts, she may have to take more time off. But she’s willing to do it. “I feel that I have no choice,” said Sandoval as she juggled a UTLA protest sign in Spanish, a floral-printed umbrella and the hand of her poncho-clad first gra...

The Creation and Evolution of Entrepreneurial Public Markets

This analysis by Shai Bernstein, Abhishek Dev, and Josh Lerner shows that stock exchanges in countries with better shareholder protection allowed younger and less profitable companies to raise more capital.

You've Got This: 5 Signs That You've Actually Got Your Ish Together

Adulting is hard, but you're actually doing better than you think. View the original article to see embedded media. I've been thinking a lot this week about this viral article on millennial burnout (shout out to my girl Anne Helen Petersen), reflecting on my experience as an adult and how it resembles the millennial condition. I've long felt that millennials (and Gen Z-ers) have gotten a bad rap for being entitled grade-grubbers (@ me next time, AHP) who eat tide pods, dab inappropriately, and s...

Complex Math Made Simple With Engaging Animations: Fourier Transform, Calculus, Linear Algebra, Neural Networks & More

In many an audio engineering course, I’ve come across the Fourier Transform, an idea so fundamental in sound production that it seems essential for everyone to know it. My limited understanding was, you might say, functional. It’s some kind of mathematical reverse engineering machine that turns waveforms into frequencies, right? Yes, but it’s much more than that. The idea can seem overwhelming to the non-mathematically-inclined among us. The Fourier Transform, named for French mathematic...

Student debt: An American horror story

College went from being a beneficial step in a young person's life to a huge financial burden for decades into their life. Since the 1970s, the cost of education has gone up between 400–1200%, depending on the kind of school you go to. Can we turn it around? Only societal change — and a good hard look in the mirror — can really make college a better move for young Americans.

Download Vincent van Gogh’s Collection of 500 Japanese Prints, Which Inspired Him to Create “the Art of the Future”

Vincent van Gogh never went to Japan, but he did spend quite a bit of time in Arles, which he considered the Japan of France. What made him think of the place that way had to do entirely with aesthetics. The Netherlands-born painter had moved to Paris in 1886, but two years later he set off for the south of France in hopes of finding real-life equivalents of the "clearness of the atmosphere and the gay colour effects" of Japanese prints. These days, we've all seen at least a few examples of tha...

Making Sense of White Paintings: A Short Art History Lesson on Minimalism and the All-White Painting

“I could do that” goes the refrain of philistines at modern art galleries, sometimes followed by a “Hell, my dog/cat/baby/elephant could do that!” Sophisticates smirk knowing smirks. Oh no, sir or madam, they most certainly could not. But maybe everyone, at some level, comes across Agnes Martin’s White Stone or Jo Baer’s Untitled (White Square Lavender) and thinks it looks like someone “just took a tube of white paint and spread it on a canvas.” It's tempting to imagine, notes Vox in the...
