The science of listening to podcasts: "And so it goes, for each word and concept as it is added to the narrative flow, as the brain adds and alters layers of networks: A living internal reality takes over the brain. That kaleidoscope of activation certainly feels intuitively right to anyone who’s been utterly lost listening to a good yarn. It also helps explain the proliferation of ear-budded zombies walking the streets, riding buses and subways, fixing the world with their blank stares."

Can You Be Good WITH Religion? – By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
Fantastic stuff. "Some time ago I realized, quite to my surprise, that there are not two different kinds of religion, one good and one bad. The things about religion that can make people act badly are exactly the same things that can inspire people to be like God. It is the mixiest of all mixed bags. We absolutely can be good people without atheism, but we have to make a constant effort to monitor ourselves and correct for the weaknesses that our greatest strengths can turn into if we are not careful."

UC Berkeley student questioned, refused service after speaking Arabic on flight | The Daily Californian
Enraging and unacceptable. "One day prior to the incident, Makhzoomi attended a dinner at the Los Angeles World Affairs Council with Secretary-General of the United Nations Ban Ki-moon. "On his way back to Berkeley, Makhzoomi, a loyal Southwest premier rewards member, boarded his flight to Oakland and called his uncle in Baghdad to tell him about Ki-moon’s event. At the end of the phone call, conducted in Arabic, Makhzoomi said goodbye to his uncle with the phrase “inshallah,” which translates to “if God is willing.” "When Makhzoomi hung up, he noticed a female passenger looking at him. Once he made eye contact with her, she got up and left her seat. “She kept staring at me and I didn’t know what was wrong,” he said. “Then I realized what was happening and I just was thinking ‘I hope she’s not reporting me.’”

Duke's Omid Safi on his visit to Utah "So, friends, let us stand next to one another, shoulder to shoulder, mirroring the good and the beautiful. Shine a light on the good. Applaud the good. Become an advocate of the good and the beautiful. Let us hang on to the faith that ultimately light overcomes darkness, and love conquers hate. It is the only thing that ever has, ever will, and does today."

A portrait of Trump the donor: Free rounds of golf, but no personal cash - The Washington Post
Incredible piece on Trump's fake philanthropy "Since the first day of his presidential campaign, Donald Trump has said that he gave more than $102 million to charity in the past five years. To back up that claim, Trump’s campaign compiled a list of his contributions — 4,844 of them, filling 93 pages. But, in that massive list, one thing was missing. Not a single one of those donations was actually a personal gift of Trump’s own money."

The Largest Ever Analysis of Film Dialogue by Gender: 2,000 scripts, 25,000 actors, 4 million lines
Incredible, eye-opening data here. "Many of the findings are anecdotally obvious to women in the film industry. But nobody wanted to do the grunt work of gathering the data. We spent weeks just matching scripts to IMDB pages. It’s still not perfect, but we’re now in a much better place than “you know...women are never love-interests when they’re older than 40. ¯\_(ツ)_/¯”"

We Must Make Him Live Again – By Common Consent, a Mormon Blog
"Yet in an important sense we are the ones who must make Christ live again on this earth. He lives as we enact his life in our lives, bringing comfort to the weary, doing justice in the midst of injustice, healing and being with the sick and afflicted, providing food for the hungry, speaking out against oppression, sitting with others in mourning and suffering. Where these things are not, he has been put to death again, and we, claiming to know him and his mission yet not doing these things that help the world to live, are his executioners. Where his work lives in us he has risen again and again to bless the world. The resurrection is not just an event, but a work that we enact as disciples of the Risen Lord. So let us not forget what we will one day be resurrected for: to continue his work, as families; to go on eternally as his disciples; to fill the universe with the transformative power of his love; to bring light and make life where before there was only death. He is risen. But we must make him live again."

Don’t worry about it. Don’t worry about it little Marco, I will. Rubio: All right, well, let’s hear it big Donald. Trump: Don’t worry about it, little Marco.

Why I stopped wearing the hijab | The Seattle Times
Oof. This whole thing is tragic. "This year, for the first time, I felt compelled to stop wearing my hijab out of concern for my safety. In the midst of the 2016 U.S. presidential campaigns, I have experienced an unprecedented degree of anti-Muslim hostility. The statements made by Donald Drumpf, in particular, encouraging the shutdown of mosques and the development of a database to track Muslim Americans have direct consequences for people like me. Over the course of the past few months, Muslim women in my social circle have been assaulted, mosques and Sikh temples have been defaced and Arab Americans have faced intensified and unwarranted surveillance."
