Workers or Shirkers? Ian Hislop's Victorian Benefits
An entertaining, provocative film in which Ian explores the colourful history behind one of the most explosive issues of our times - welfare: who deserves to be helped, and who doesn't. [... ] all hate, no heart. just spreadsheets. at Whitehall, no 11. [...] Benefit Street = victorian freak show/circus of curiosities [...] writing about others, "othering" them. demonising them or putting them on pedestals, making them saints. [...] IDS "a single mother wo aspiration is a product of the system" would correct that, a product of her environment (society) [ie gentrification - poor living w poor door to door. and everyone is looking down on them.].

Charlie Sheen discloses HIV positive diagnosis: 'It's a hard three letters to absorb' | Culture | The Guardian
Today Show host Matt Lauer asked Sheen why he continued to bring people including prostitutes to his home even though they were threatening him. Sheen said it was because he was depressed. He said that the period in March 2011 when he appeared on television and online making absurd claims and going on long tirades was not tied to his HIV status. “I wish I could blame it on that – that was more roid rage,” he said. [...] CBS fired Sheen from the long-running sitcom Two and a Half Men in March 2011 after the Golden Globe-winning actor had a public meltdown and criticised the show’s creator, Chuck Lorre. Filming had been disrupted in the previous year as Sheen, who was the highest-paid actor on television at the time, received treatment for drug addiction. //&! As medical advances help thousands of people, it would be disastrous to revert to bigoted attitudes in public and the media - - If a celebrity – or anybody else – has HIV, it really is none of our business.

#BBCtrending: How supermodels went social - BBC News
But how close to reality is the lifestyle projected online? // Its keeping up with the Johns's on steroids. // &! Cyberbullying and "sexting" by young people can lead to depression in later life, warns a psychiatrist. [...] Dr Bijlani draws on research that suggests depression and anxiety affect more children than ever before. According to data from the Health and Social Care Information Centre (HSCIC), emergency admissions for psychiatric conditions rose to 17,278 in 2014, double the number four years previously. -

On the Origin of Celebrity - Issue 5: Fame - Nautilus
"Why the obsession? Because we’re primates with vested interests in tracking social hierarchies and patterns of social affiliation. And celebrities provide our primate minds with stimulating gyrations of hierarchy and affiliation (who is sleeping with, feuding with, out-earning whom). [...] Why is rank so important to a baboon? For one thing, a stable dominance system is a huge social convenience—it insures bloody teeth and claws don’t reign each time a potential conflict arises." - via &!&! "We think that fame is deserved. We are wrong. [...] These two traits—our compulsion to tell stories, and our bias towards the individual—conspire to ruin our intuitive understanding of fame. [...] There is no such thing as fate, only the story of fate." << via

Memo to my daughter: “Keep your eye on the ball and hit hard” | PandoDaily
What I love about Abramson’s [...] she’s named it, she’s owned it, but she doesn’t make herself a victim. She knows she lives in a sexist world and that makes her victories– and even her defeats– that much sweeter. This is how we should talk about women in the world. Not stupid debates about having it all. Taking the world as it exists, naming it, shrugging, and continuing to fight. // +++ // "entrenched short-sightedness and sexist cruelty of male-controlled media [...] Yay, thanks for some crumbs of enlightened thinking, for some slightly nuanced improvements in the daily, punishing business of publicly evaluating and then reevaluating women’s worth. [...] 'I don’t fucking care if you like it.' [...] Social Media [frictionless, not thinking twice or setting something aside for a day]. [Women's] life['s and worth's] are up for public evaluation. [To this day.]" +++

Can Social App Secret Survive the Trolls? | Re/code
Problem is, deep down inside, some of us are jerks. It’s a common problem on the Internet — once you take away identity and accountability, it’s far easier to troll other people. Take a look at many comments sections for Web publishers (including, often, this very site). As a result, much of my Secret stream has been filled with Silicon Valley gossip and trash talk. [...] At launch, Secret co-founders David Byttow and Chrys Bader said they’re relying on a community policing system, where users can flag problem posts or block bad connections. And ideally, they said, your network will contain fewer trolls since it’s composed mostly of your friends and your friends’ friends. As at least my network has proved thus far, friend or no, not everyone is nice in the dark. [... the same ol fallacy that a community of anon people will police themselves ... ROFL. The same fallacy still exists for the same reason Admins, Support people, Mods, and Reporting Forms still exist ...]
