    1. This came in the context of weighing what she stood to gain and lose in leaving a staff job at BuzzFeed. She knew the worth of what editors, fact-checkers, designers, and other colleagues brought to a piece of writing. At the same time, she was tired of working around the “imperatives of social media sharing.” Clarity and concision are not metrics imposed by the Facebook algorithm, of course — but perhaps such concerns lose some of their urgency when readers have already pledged their support.

      Continuing with the idea above about the shift of Sunday morning talk shows and the influence of Hard Copy, is social media exerting a negative influence on mainstream content and conversation as a result of their algorithmic gut reaction pressure? How can we fight this effect?

    2. Matt Taibbi asked his subscribers in April. Since they were “now functionally my editor,” he was seeking their advice on potential reporting projects. One suggestion — that he write about Ibram X. Kendi and Robin DiAngelo — swiftly gave way to a long debate among readers over whether race was biological.

      There's something here that's akin to the idea of bikeshedding? Online communities flock to the low lying ideas upon which they can proffer an opinion and play at the idea of debate. If they really cared, wouldn't they instead delve into the research and topics themselves? Do they really want Taibbi's specific take? Do they want or need his opinion on the topic? What do they really want?

      Compare and cross reference this with the ideas presented by Ibram X. Kendi's article There Is No Debate Over Critical Race Theory.

      Are people looking for the social equivalent of a simple "system one" conversation or are they ready, willing, and able to delve into a "system two" presentation?

      Compare this also with the modern day version of the Sunday morning news (analysis) shows? They would seem to be interested in substantive policy and debate, but they also require a lot of prior context to participate. In essence, most speakers don't actually engage, but spew out talking points instead and rely on gut reactions and fear, uncertainty and doubt to make their presentations. What happened to the actual discourse? Has there been a shift in how these shows work and present since the rise of the Hard Copy sensationalist presentation? Is the competition for eyeballs weakening these analysis shows?

      How might this all relate to low level mansplaining as well? What are men really trying to communicate in demonstrating this behavior? What do they gain in the long run? What is the evolutionary benefit?

      All these topics seem related somehow within the spectrum of communication and what people look for and choose in what and how they consume content.

    1. Carl T. Bergstrom. (2021, August 18). 1. There has been lots of talk about recent data from Israel that seem to suggest a decline in vaccine efficacy against severe disease due to Delta, waning protection, or both. This may have even been a motivation for Biden’s announcement that the US would be adopting boosters. [Tweet]. @CT_Bergstrom. https://twitter.com/CT_Bergstrom/status/1427767356600688646

    1. Trevor Bedford. (2022, January 10). Given ~680k cases per day, this would in turn suggest 0.8% or 1% of the US being infected with SARS-CoV-2 every day. This would translate to perhaps 5% or 10% of individuals currently infected with SARS-CoV-2 in the US. 15/15 [Tweet]. @trvrb. https://twitter.com/trvrb/status/1480610448563060738

    1. Gap analysis in 4 steps Instead of groping around in the dark, a gap analysis of the gap leads us through a detailed investigation of where our organization is currently and where we want to be. This allows us to act on the basis of facts, not on the basis of assumptions.

    1. Founded in partnership with a team of entrepreneurial journalists who believe in a better model to create excellent content while narrowing the synapse between elite creators and their audiences.

      Another platform play of journalists banding together to find a niche space of readers.

    1. https://puck.news/

      Along with the proliferation of newsletters and paid journalism spaces, is this another in the litany of sites that do news analysis while chasing eyeballs? Is it following in the tradition of the move from hard news (or tiny amounts of it) to loud news analysis a la Fox News?

      Will we see the volume and partisanship increase in this newsletter/paywall space over the next decade until the next thing arrives?

    1. Newsletters are an imperfect antidote to that, allowing writers a closer relationship with a more focused audience.

      The ultimate value of newsletters is their more direct connection to a specific niche audience for which they curate news or content. The value they provide readers is as a filter of their area with some some useful analysis and perspective.

    1. It’s a lot more work to give people an interesting puzzle to solve, support them with high expectations all the way through them doing something genuinely compelling and interesting with the synthesis (and they know when you’re just BSing them), and hold them to high standards while also modeling the appropriate behaviors yourself. It’s almost impossible with class sizes upwards of 40 and class periods of 40 minutes and most of the system isn’t actually optimized for achieving that anyway
    2. education has been moving farther and farther away from memorization-based learning. The standardized tests I give are modeled off of the AP History exams’ Document Based Questions, which prioritize analysis and communication skills over rote memorization.

    1. A Marm Kilpatrick. (2021, November 24).

    1. . And, my gracious Duke, This man hath bewitch’d the bosom of my child

      This implies that she was tricked by Lysander into falling in love with him. It downplays Hermia's agency in her relationship with Lysander.

    2. Scornful Lysander, true, he hath my love; And what is mine my love shall render him;

      Egeus' determination to marry Hermia off to Demetrius without any specific reason other than he is his chosen preference brings into question the relationship between Demetrius and Egeus

    3. I beg the ancient privilege of Athens: As she is mine I may dispose of her; Which shall be either to this gentleman Or to her death,

      This speaks to the role of women in the Elizabethan era. It might not have been that extreme as the Shakespeare's Athenian laws, but it speaks to the expected relationship between fathers and daughters. Hermia does not seem to have a lot of agency since her father has decided the trajectory of her life, with Demetrius or death.

    4. I do entreat your Grace to pardon me. I know not by what power I am made bold, Nor how it may concern my modesty In such a presence here to plead my thoughts: But I beseech your Grace that I may know

      In Hermia's pleading, she begins by acknowledging her powerlessness against Theseus and her father. This acknowledgement humbles her and reaffirms the power of the two men. It makes appeal to not marry Demetrius more sorrowful and more likely to have an empathetic ear.

    5. To live a barren sister all your life, Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.

      The imagery of the "cold fruitless moon" implies the Theseus' dislike or disagreement with the lives of nuns. It could also extend to his dislike with the moon herself.

    6. One that compos’d your beauties, yea, and one To whom you are but as a form in wax By him imprinted, and within his power

      The wax comparison here takes away from Hermia's humanity. The wax takes leaves no room for any deviation from Hermia. Theseus is reminding Hermia that she has no choice.

    7. Thou hast by moonlight at her window sung, With feigning voice, verses of feigning love; And stol’n the impression of her fantasy With bracelets of thy hair, rings, gauds, conceits, Knacks, trifles, nosegays, sweetmeats (messengers Of strong prevailment in unharden’d youth)

      This sentence downplays the Hermia's intelligence and maturity. Essentially, it labels Hermia as gullible and prone to deception.

    8. Come, my Hippolyta. What cheer, my love

      It would have been interesting to hear from Hippolyta because she is a woman who did not grow up under the direction of a man.

    9. But, being over-full of self-affairs, My mind did lose it.—

      His absent-mindness in here shows how unimportant Hermia or even Egeus' reason to marrying his daugther off to Lysander. Theseus' sided with Egeus solely because he is a father, and views him as the authority figure.

    10. But, being over-full of self-affairs, My mind did lose it

      His absent-mindness in here shows how unimportant Hermia or even Egeus' reason to marrying his daugther off to Lysander. Theseus' sided with Egeus solely because he is a father, and views him as the authority figure.

    11. Come, my Hippolyta. What cheer, my love?

      It would have been interesting to hear from Hippolyta because she is a woman who did not grow up under the direction of a man.

    12. messengers Of strong prevailment in unharden’d youth

      This sentence downplays the Hermia's intelligence and maturity. Essentially, it labels Hermia as gullible and prone to deception.

    13. Scornful Lysander, true, he hath my love; And what is mine my love shall render him; And she is mine, and all my right of her I do estate unto Demetrius.

      Egeus' determination to marry Hermia off to Demetrius without any specific reason other than he is his chosen preference brings into question the relationship between Demetrius and Egeus

    14. Chanting faint hymns to the cold fruitless moon.

      The imagery of the "cold fruitless moon" implies the Theseus' dislike or disagreement with the lives of nuns. It could also extend to his dislike with the moon herself.

    15. I do entreat your Grace to pardon me. I know not by what power I am made bold, Nor how it may concern my modesty In such a presence here to plead my thoughts: But I beseech your Grace that I may know The worst that may befall me in this case, If I refuse to wed Demetrius.

      In Hermia's pleading, she begins by acknowledging her powerlessness against Theseus and her father. This acknowledgement humbles her and reaffirms the power of the two men. It makes appeal to not marry Demetrius more sorrowful and more likely to have an empathetic ear.

    16. As she is mine I may dispose of her; Which shall be either to this gentleman Or to her death,

      This speaks to the role of women in the Elizabethan era. It might not have been that extreme as the Shakespeare's Athenian laws, but it speaks to the expected relationship between fathers and daughters.

    1. O, my love, my love is young!

      This line gets to the heart of the poem's meaning, and attaches it to the themes of the collection itself (amorous poetry).

    2. For methinks thou stay’st too long.

      Here the author rebukes the young "shepherd" that represents the lover, attempting to remove their own temptation.

    3. Crabbed age and youth cannot live together

      This poem is a lamentation by its author (Shakespeare or other) that age has prevented them from pursuing a younger lover. The author lists each point proving why such a love is incompatible, before shooing away the young lover to cut off temptation.

    4. She

      In this final stanza, the author again turns to the juxtaposition between positive and negative language. Their lover "burn[s]" with love, implying a positive passion, but they also utilize the negative side of burning to indicate that the love is short-lived. The rhetorical question in the 5th line sums up the poem's question - is the author's lover virtuous, fair, and worthy, or is she a "lecher," lustful and passionate but not to last?

    5. Her

      The first 2 lines of this stanza act as the first half of each line of the previous stanza did, to emphasize the positive aspects of the relationship between the author and their lover. Then lines 3 and 4 return to the idea of a "false" lover who invents "tales," before wistfully concluding in lines 5 and 6 that the lover's "faith...oaths...tears" were false.

    6. Fair

      This first 6-line stanza introduces a complex tone. The author, in 5 consecutive lines, praises their lover ("fair", "mild", etc.) before characterizing her in a negative way ("fickle", "brittle", etc.).

    7. oaths

      Double meaning: The author's lover swears an 'oath' to them of love, a promise, but since that promise is false, according to the final line of the stanza, it also resembles a curse.

    8. dye to grace her,

      The author implies falseness in their lover, since she appears as a lily, but masks herself in another flower's coloring.

    9. whether?

      In calling their (female) lover a 'lecher', the author not only implies a gross unchasteness, they imply a masculinity, since lecher was most frequently applied to men.

    1. ReconfigBehSci. (2021, December 9). a rather worrying development- a (local) newspaper “fact checking” the new German health minister simply by interviewing a virologist who happens to have a different view. There’s simply no established “fact” as to the severity of omicron in children at this point in time [Tweet]. @SciBeh. https://twitter.com/SciBeh/status/1469037817481334786
