One Woman’s Brilliant “Fuck You” to Wikipedia Trolls A young Wikipedia editor withstood a decade of online abuse. Now she’s fighting back — on Wikipedia itself. The “fuck you” project crystallized one Friday night last year. “There are alternate realities where I raped you and got away with it,” it read. The note came from someone with a history of harassing the 22-year-old medical student. Nothing. She’d been receiving vicious emails for a decade. Follow Backchannel: Facebook | Twitter Across the internet, trolls disproportionately target women and members of other underrepresented groups. When people get forced off the web, their voices disappear from the internet’s public squares. But on that Friday night, Temple-Wood had an idea. Temple-Wood didn’t want to give up her voice — the web was the only place where she felt free to be herself. The first time she tried editing Wikipedia, in 2007, she created a page under an anonymous account to taunt her younger sister. Creative Art Direction: Redindhi StudioIllustration by: Laurent Hrybyk

Nom de famille : quelles démarches pour ajouter le nom de la mère ? Le nom est, en principe, attribué définitivement à la personne en fonction de sa filiation et il doit rester tel que l’indique son état civil. La loi n° 85-1372 du 23 décembre 1985 reconnaît à toute personne majeure la possibilité d'ajouter à son nom, à titre d'usage, le nom de celui de ses parents qui ne lui a pas été transmis. Ainsi, si son article 43 autorise toute personne majeure à ajouter à son nom, si elle le souhaite, le nom de celui de ses parents qui ne le lui a pas transmis. A l'égard des enfants mineurs, cette faculté est mise en œuvre par les titulaires de l'exercice de l'autorité parentale. Cette faculté d'adjonction du nom de l'un de ses parents ne peut se faire qu'à titre d'usage, c'est-à-dire sans modification de l'état civil de l'intéressé. La circulaire du 4 novembre 1987 prévoit la mise en œuvre de l'article 43 de la loi du 23 décembre 1985.

A Love Letter to the Moth I can trace it back to the beginning for you, trace my Moth addiction to its start. For the uninitiated, the Moth is an organization devoted to the craft of storytelling. It’s real people telling true stories, “live and without notes.” They convene frequent shows in New York (though they now tour the country regularly), they have a weekly podcast that’s been downloaded many millions of times, and a radio show, now in its sixth season, that airs on some two hundred and fifty public-radio stations nationwide. They’ve been around since 1997, but I hadn’t heard of them until 2008, when I was in Perth, Australia, for a literary festival. That’s where I got hooked. If you’ve never been to a literary festival, it’s basically like sleepaway camp for writers, with all the pressures that go along with it. In Perth, the Moth folk had enlisted some of the festival’s writers to perform. What the tellers do on stage is so simple. There is little fanfare prior to the tellings. Paul Bacon, “Bad Cop”

What short films have you seen on the internet that you feel everyone should watch (under 10 minutes) : AskReddit Endearing Twin Photography Newborn photo shoots are always tricky, but when you add two other young kids? That is a true challenge. Photographer Juliet Cannici and her wife Nikki recently welcomed twin girls Gia and Gemma, adding to their brood of 3-year-old twins Nico and Siena. So far, the now-family of six are getting along swimmingly. Nico and Siena were very excited to meet their new siblings; for months, they snuggled with Nikki’s belly, talking to the then-unborn babies. “Now that they [Gia and Gemma] are here,” Cannici told The Huffington Post, “they [Nico and Siena] are incredibly gentle with them, and love holding and feeding them. When the newborns were just 11 days old, Cannici enacted her grand plan. Once Cannici realized that that the fancy clothes were out, she took Nico and Siena out of their costumes and let them play. “I hope when people look at that photo they can see the true joy,” Cannici expressed. Here’s how Nico and Siena looked when posed in their fancy outfits. Siena is NOT having fun.

Capitalism: Success, Crisis, and Reform Professor Douglas W. Rae, Professor of Political Science and Richard Ely Professor of Management Description In this course, we will seek to interpret capitalism using ideas from biological evolution: firms pursuing varied strategies and facing extinction when those strategies fail are analogous to organisms struggling for survival in nature. For this reason, it is less concerned with ultimate judgment of capitalism than with the ways it can be shaped to fit our more specific objectives--for the natural environment, public health, alleviation of poverty, and development of human potential in every child.

Meet 12 Badass Scientists…Who Also Happen to be Women 1. Renée Hlozek, cosmologist South African cosmologist Renée Hlozek studies the cosmic microwave background — radiation left over from the Big Bang — to better understand the initial conditions of the universe and how it grew into the structures, such as galaxies, we see today. “My field is about asking questions about the nature and evolution of the universe, fundamental to our understanding of ourselves,” Hlozek says. 2. We know a lot about molecular processes, yet they are impossible to observe directly. “The group of women in this image work on some pretty awe-inspiring science — from understanding the birth of the universe, to finding evidence of cancer in ancient human populations, to preserving animal species that may disappear without our help,” says Iwasa. 3. When archeologist Katie Hunt was diagnosed with ovarian cancer at 22, it catalyzed a deeper curiosity about cancer as an ancient disease. 4. 5. 6. Astrophysicist Jedidah Isler studies supermassive, hyperactive black holes.

Jesse Owens & Luz Long Jesse Owens won gold in the long jump at the 1936 Summer Olympics. In second was Luz Long, a German athlete who in the photograph is doing the Nazi salute. After their competition, Luz was the first to congratulate Jesse. “They posed together for photos and walked arm-in-arm to the dressing room. Owens said, ‘It took a lot of courage for him to befriend me in front of Hitler… You can melt down all the medals and cups I have and they wouldn’t be a plating on the twenty-four karat friendship that I felt for Luz Long at that moment.’” The two stayed friends. Luz was killed in action during WWII. Sources:
