Greetings Webtaculators! I hope you all had as great of a Sunday as I did – drinking wine, watching the Warriors crush the Cavs, and getting Beyoncemacated. Hope everyone had a great weekend as well. On to the news.
ECONOMIC THING OF THE WEEK (5 min. read)
What: You’re Welcome
Why: Because this is what I actually do for my real job. See? I’m helping!
LAW THING OF THE WEEK (20 min. read)
What: Rape Is Not OK
Why: Because this outcome is indicative of both how we treat rape in the US, and how privilege plays a role in the outcome of litigation.
SCIENCE THING OF THE WEEK (15 min. read)
What: How To Look At Data
Why: Because most of us probably spend time trying to analyze data in some way or another, so understanding the best way to produce data for humans to be able to understand is probably helpful.
SPORTS THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Djokovic Finally Conquers France
Why: Because Novak Djokovic finally won the French Open after 12 years.
INTERNET THING OF THE WEEK (long read)
What: Grantland Part II
Why: Because Bill Simmons just released his newest online thing on the world. It already is terrible because one of its first articles defends Joe Buck, the worst human being in the world (only because he hates Bay Area sports for some reason- he seems OK otherwise).
MUSIC THING OF THE WEEK (3 min. read)
What: Wedding Music
Why: Because now I don’t need to make my own playlist.
FOOD THING OF THE WEEK (15 min. read)
What: Pho-king Good
Why: Because Pho is one of my favorite types of my favorite food. Yes, soup is my favorite kind of food. Take your favorite dish, put it in a broth, and I guarantee that the outcome is 100x better.
VIDEO GAME THING OF THE WEEK (13 min. watch)
What: How FPS’s Work
Why: Because making a game that essentially boils down to pushing the W, S, A, D, and “space” keys while moving and clicking your mouse try to feel good is actually challenging.
THING YOU SHOULD GET BRIAN OF THE WEEK
What: Lemonade (it’s art, right Jenn?)
Why: Because Brian deserves it.
