Box of Cookies Causes Total Panic by Having Arabic Writing on Label | MUNCHIES
Good work, everyone. "A Pennsylvania gas station was temporarily closed, a nearby daycare was evacuated, and a bomb squad was called in from 50 miles away, all because a box of 12 maamoul–which had Arabic script on the side–was discovered near a gas pump at the Marshalls Creek Gulf station."

The Free-Time Paradox in America - The Atlantic
This rings incredibly true. Leisure is leaky. "My job fits snugly into this category. Writing is a leaky affair, where the boundaries between work and leisure are always porous. When I open Twitter, or watch the news on a Sunday morning, am I panning for golden nuggets of insight, taking a mental-health break, or something in between? It’s difficult to say; sometimes, I don’t even know. A novel that I read can become an article’s lede. A history book on my desk can inspire a column. Because the scope of non-fiction journalism is boundless, every moment of my downtime could theoretically surface an idea or stray comment that becomes a story. As a result, my weekdays feel more like weekends (and my weekends feel more like weekdays) than a 20h-century reporter’s."

It Makes No Sense That Word Processors Are Still Designed for the Printed Page | Motherboard
Fantastic article on why word processing today sucks (with a bonus Mormon connection!) "For decades, word processors evolved with printers, taking on features like typography and layout, but the problem is that printers eventually became less important as a way to communicate—and a lot of modern word processors (looking at you, Word) never took the time to change course when the internet became a thing. And as a result, they've become about everything except writing. You have to worry about the appearance of the content as well as the formatting. You're constantly getting pulled out of your zone, perhaps less now than in the 90s, but still enough where it feels like you're fighting the software even to get a word on the page. And the worst part: Despite the fact that the odds are way higher that you're going to throw your document on the internet than on a sheet of paper, the entire structure of the software—even for internet-native approaches like Google Docs—is designed for the end goal of printing."

Latter-day Saints Against Trump – Medium
I'm proud to have signed this. READ IT, EVERYONE. "We recognize the difficulties of this election season. No candidate will conform perfectly to an individual’s particular political preferences — or even sense of moral rightness. Our criti­cisms of the other current candidates are numerous and diverse. But to suppose that Trump is “just another politician” is to ignore the reality of the situation before us. He has proven himself to be unreliable on even his best points and morally unbearable on his worst. We no longer enjoy the luxury of throwing up our hands in the air in exasperation. We urge you to make a choice for liberty, for peace, for responsible government, and for the bonds that bring us together this November. In the spirit of religious freedom and our common commitment to Constitutional principles, we urge all to vote against Donald Trump this November."

The Worst of All Possible Worlds? Religious Pessimism and the Gospel of Hope – By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
Yep to all of this. "... any generation can be bad, but only one can be the worst. And if every generation is the worst one ever, we have to keep inventing new reasons that life sucks even worse in order to justify our eschatological narratives. We have tricked ourselves into believing that hope in Christ for tomorrow requires us to believe that we live in the worst of all possible worlds today. We have quite a bit of evidence to suggest, however, that we are closer to the world of Dr. Pangloss than to that of Voltaire. Steven Pinker’s recent book The Better Angels of Our Nature .... for example, presents a vast amount of data to support his point that we are now living in the least cruel and least violent era in the world’s history. We have a hard time recognizing this, of course, because of our unprecedented ability to monitor the world’s events...."

"Mr. Sanders, Ms. Obama, and others presented an America flawed, but not fatalistic. Their America is not bound to illusions of the past or fears of the future, but to honest confrontation of its troubled state – and a refusal to let its redemption be stolen by a demagogue lying in wait."

Even when controlling for party identification, gender, education level, age, evangelical self-identification, and social dominance orientation — all factors known to predict Americans’ attitudes toward Donald Trump — the Harry Potter effect remained."

Mattering is not a zero-sum game. – By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
"So when we as Mormons hear #blacklivesmatter, we should not engage in comparative thinking, hearing that black lives matter more, or that only black lives matter. That’s not what #blacklivesmatter means. Friend, #blacklivesmatter does thee no wrong. Does thy life matter less, because #blacklivesmatter? Of course not. So please don’t say #alllivesmatter. Not now. Not as a slogan or a hashtag to shout down #blacklivesmatter. Because black lives do matter, and mattering is not a zero-sum game.?"

First Lady FTW: Thousands Of Children Who Partici... | ClickHole
\(•◡•)/ #thanksobama "“It’s amazing how the program has transformed them,” said Let’s Move instructor Kerry Owen. “When kids first began entering into the program back in 2010, they couldn’t climb a flight of stairs without getting winded. Now we can’t even contain them any more, no matter how hard we try. They’re so fast it’s impossible to catch them, and they’re able to toss grown men around like rag dolls.” Wow. What an inspiration this is for all kids to make positive changes in their lives! The program has been shown to reduce kids’ heart rates, lower their body fat, and allow them to rip handcuffs clean in half, even while wearing them. Thanks to Michelle’s efforts, kids who once spent all day on the couch playing video games could now easily bust through a well-fortified police barricade with ease."

"Being Muslim American already carries a decent amount of baggage. In our culture, when people think “Muslim,” the picture in their heads is not usually of the Nobel Peace Prize winner Malala Yousafzai, Kareem Abdul-Jabbar or the kid who left the boy band One Direction. It’s of a scary terrorist character from “Homeland” or some monster from the news. Today, with the presidential candidate Donald J. Trump and others like him spewing hate speech, prejudice is reaching new levels. It’s visceral, and scary, and it affects how people live, work and pray. It makes me afraid for my family. It also makes no sense."

Obama’s most unusual legacy? Being a good dad. - The Washington Post
"Soon after being inaugurated, Obama... vowed to have dinner with his family five nights a week. That left just two nights a week for out-of-town fundraisers or dinners with fellow politicians. At 6:30, Obama and his wife sit down with the girls for a family dinner without any outsiders. The evening meal, observed Obama’s former body-man Reggie Love, was treated 'like a meeting in the Situation Room. There’s a hard stop before that dinner.' While aides sometimes call him back to work at 8:30 or 9, they rarely dare to go upstairs to bother him during the sacred dinner hour."
