Breitbart -- University of Wisconsin-Madison Students Say Ice Cream Marginalizes Muslim, Vegans
'...“The reasons given for not changing the gelatins, in the name of ‘tradition,’ exclude Muslim, Buddhist, Hindu, Jewish, Vegetarian, and Vegan students from partaking in eating the official, campus wide, traditional ice cream that is often listed as part of the ‘Wisconsin experience,'” the legislation reads. “Symbolic issues like these have always and will always play a critical role in whether marginalized students and people feel welcome, included, and connected to their community,” it continues. -- Astonishingly, the university already offers gelatin-free ice cream at the university ice cream shop, Babcock Dairy. Additionally, a University of Wisconsin-Madison spokesperson told Campus Reform that the campus already offers more than one ice cream option for students who can’t eat beef gelatin. The campus “produces and sells ‘super premium’ ice cream, sherbet and Greek frozen yogurt options that are made with a plant-based stabilizer and are gelatin-free.” The campus also offers a lactose-free ice cream for those with dairy allergies. -- Despite this, the student council has demanded that school officials acknowledge that standard ice cream options marginalize religious students on campus. Ice cream is an iconic part of the culture in dairy-rich Wisconsin, perhaps making it a target for progressives on campus.' -- https://medium.com/incerto/the-most-intolerant-wins-the-dictatorship-of-the-small-minority-3f1f83ce4e15

Why Francis’s child protection summit may be highest-stakes gamble of his papacy
Over the last five and a half years, dozens of times I have found myself in conversations - sometimes with Church people, sometimes with colleagues in the media, sometimes on the lecture circuit - the subject of which is, “Can anything end the public love affair with this pope?”Francis is such a compelling, inspirational figure, it’s always been a tough question to answer. Usually, I would say something like the following: “If the pope came to be perceived as dirty on the abuse mess, that might be the only thing that could do it.”..the fact that the meeting is so short, just three days, and that participants aren’t pushovers but the elected leaders of national bishops’ conferences who likely won’t be amenable to having prefabricated outcomes just shoved down their throats, may make it difficult to accomplish much.Francis has a great deal to lose if this goes wrong, and a great deal to gain if it goes right - the dictionary definition, therefore, of a high-stakes move

Introducing makeitpop, a tool to perceptually warp your data! - Predictably Noisy
So, tl;dr:

Jet (and many other colormaps) mis-represent your perception of the data
Perceptually flat colormaps like Viridis, Magma, Inferno, or Parula minimize this effect
You can calculate the extent to which this mis-representation happens as you move along the colormap
We can then use this function to distort data so that the data itself contains this mis-representation
But doing so would be super unethical, so in the end you should stop using jet and use a perceptually-flat colormap like viridis.
