Since then, many popular URL shortening services have emerged and the ways people find content on the Internet have also changed dramatically, from primarily desktop webpages to apps, mobile devices, home assistants, and more. To refocus our efforts, we're turning down support for over the coming weeks and replacing it with Firebase Dynamic Links (FDL).

Electoral college reform (fifty states with equal population) / fake is the new real The electoral college is a time-honored, logical system for picking the chief executive of the United States. However, the American body politic has also grown accustomed to paying close attention to the popular vote.

Marketers, Meet Moms on Social Networks You see the same scene in any neighborhood with young families: mom pushing the stroller with one hand, clutching her smartphone with the other. Through Pinterest, Facebook and other social platforms, she is likely using that phone to connect or gather information online. That moms are big-time social network users is demonstrated in study after study. eMarketer’s latest forecast shows that this year nearly 28 million moms will use social networks, representing a whopping 82% of mom internet users who have children under 18 in the household. In February, a BabyCenter study further revealed how much more likely moms were to regularly use social media compared with the general population—80% vs. 55%, respectively. Additionally, moms were more likely than the general population to have over 200 friends and to “like” brands.

Space Alien Invasion: Science Channel's 'Are We Alone?' Considers ET Confrontation With Earthlings An alien invasion is headed our way.

The world’s top 50 billionaires: A demographic breakdown. Top 50 Billionaire Breakdown If you asked anyone to picture the wealthiest person in the world at any given time, you could bet on some common denominators: probably a man; probably somehow attached to the words “multinational” or “conglomerate”; probably on a yacht off a private island. With Slate’s Top 50 Billionaire Breakdown, we attempt to visualize the richest of the rich by paring them into demographic categories: age, location, industry, source of wealth, education, and religious affiliation.

Anarchism or Marxism? — What are the political differences between anarchism and marxism, and do they still matter in the new international situation?
