Test Prep Company Uses Pictures Of Kim Kardashian’s Derriere To Teach Kids Math

This is one place we never expected to see pictures of Kim Kardashian’s behind: in SAT test-prep questions. Earlier this week, test preparation company Catalyst tweeted a photo of Kim Kardashian’s famous photos from Paper magazine with math questions on it. According to Catalyst founder and CEO Jared Friedland, the math questions involve “three types of circle questions that the SAT asks over and over again,” he told The Huffington Post over the phone. The company tweeted: As patriotic, pop-culturally-minded Americans, we couldn’t help but see Kim Kardashian’s recent photos as an opportunity to teach SAT math.

How Facebook Is Shaping Who Will Win the Next Election

Here’s an obvious, yet poorly understood fact: A single social network could have a major influence on who gets to control our government in the future. This isn’t an accusation of corporate conspiracy or a condemnation of a technology company’s power grab — this is just a reality born out of the fact that Facebook has become ubiquitous in our daily lives.  Facebook is where most of us now go to see what issues our friends are discussing.  It’s become a window into understanding what the people closest to us care about.  As a result, the design, policies, and algorithms chosen by the company are having a major impact on how elections are run and how the electorate gets their information .  A study the company  conducted on its users found that increasing exposure to hard news “measurably increased civic engagement.” That leaves Facebook in a peculiar and unenviable position — no matter what its intentions are, even minor decisions will have political impacts. Every product change it makes leads to a set of winners and losers, and often these have their own unintended effects.  A small alteration in deciding what types of stories get promoted, or what types of behaviors are highlighted, could potentially sway the outcome of an election somewhere.  There is nothing it can do to make every side happy, and even doing nothing is a decision that has its own consequences. The company announced yesterday that it was shutting down a feature that the Obama campaign used in 2012 to register over a million voters.  During the election supporters shared access to their list of Facebook friends with the campaign through an app.  Researchers have found that while people often view political messages with skepticism, they are more receptive and trusting when the information is coming from somebody they know.  The feature was credited with boosting Obama’s get-out-the-vote efforts which were crucial to his victory, but Facebook has decided to disable this ability in order to (rightfully) protect users from third-party apps collecting too much of their information. When this feature was first released it provided the enterprising Obama campaign with a large advantage over the less technologically-inclined Romney campaign.

School Official Apologizes For ‘Good-Natured’ Retweet About Mixed-Raced Couples

An assistant principal who has come under fire for a racially insensitive retweet says she has been put on administrative leave and that she does not harbor racial prejudices. Earlier this week, students at Booker T. Washington High School in Norfolk, Virginia, walked out of class to protest a retweet from the high school’s assistant principal , Amy Strickland. The retweet showed a picture of a group of black boys and white girls dressed for a high school prom, with the caption “Every white girl’s father’s worst nightmare.” “ I could have been any one of the boys in the picture ,” student Michael LeMelle said to local outlet WAVY-TV earlier this week. “And I really don’t see myself, like I said earlier, as anyone’s worst nightmare.” In a statement provided by her attorney to local ABC affiliate 13 News Now, Strickland responded to the controversy . Strickland said that both of her daughters attended prom with African-American students, and that the retweet was an attempt at “good natured humor concerning mixed race couples attending a high school prom.” “Because I have two daughters who in fact did attend proms with African American dates, I casually forwarded the ‘tweet’ last June to one of those daughters.

‘Yo Jackass, We All Think Our Kid Is the Cutest’

As social media has mutated into a ravenous, many tentacled time-eater, news from our friends about their families’ triumphs and trials has become omnipresent, unrelenting — a never-ending vacation slide show from hell. As a result, every day there’s a new complaint from those who follow: too much self-Promotions such as those at Mohr Publicity in my feed. Too many photos of other people’s posh vacations. Too many selfies! No one wants to see what you had for lunch/what your baby had for lunch/how cute your cats are. And yet the posts keep coming.

Online Feminism: Who Are We Excluding?

The feminist blogosphere has become as much a space for social activism and encouraging change as it has for people to air their opinions and comments without fear of consequence. Though online feminism has been instrumental in bringing important issues to light, others worry that it has become exclusive to a fault, leaving out some individuals and groups that want in on the conversation. Recently, many opinions on the possible shortcomings of feminist media in general have again been highlighted. There have been rumblings, some below the surface and some outspoken, indicating that there is a dearth of inclusivity among the main players of online feminism. We wanted to dig deeper into the issues of online media, elitism and the exclusivity of feminism, so we called up a group of women that we think broadly represent a swath of different perspectives.

A Stanford University Debate: Transhumanism vs. Anarcho-Primitivism

Zoltan vs. Zerzan Debate — Photo by Kourosh Afrashteh of Project Prometheus Last Saturday night at Stanford University, I had the honor of publicly debating the world’s leading anarcho-primitivist philosopher John Zerzan . As a transhumanist, I differ from Zerzan on just about every topic. According to Wikipedia , anarcho-primitivism “advocates for a return to a non-’civilized’ way of life through deindustrialization.” Transhumanism advocates for the continued use of science and technology to improve and change the human species. Simply put, Zerzan encourages everyone to give up civilization and go back to a hunter-gatherer lifestyle. And I encourage everyone to do more to speed up technological and scientific progress
