Mona Eltahawy, the prominent Egyptian-American writer and activist, has been arrested in New York after spraying paint over a controversial poster on the subway that has been condemned for equating Muslims with “savages”. Full story behind the video.

You may remember Mona from when she was sexually assaulted and had both of her arms broken  by Egyptian security forces last year while reporting for CNN. She still finished her report. 

Ugh. I cringed as soon as I saw this picture.

Thank you, Salon for providing the rebuttal.
"Gaze plays an important role in this visual narrative. Just as Scarborough is identified as the dominant persona on the show that bears his moniker (he’s identified as the “host,” whereas Brzezinski is the “co-host”), his gaze is turned outward while Brzezinski’s focuses exclusively on him. Rather than sitting parallel to Scarborough, Brzezinski is placed on a table—the empty chair underscoring her status as an accessory."

I majored in #11 and then a version of #13 in undergrad and ended up with a Masters in #8. Looking down this list, it seems these are the majors that make you happy instead of making you rich. They also seem to be degrees that prepare someone to contribute thoughtful or beautiful things to the world. I think we need a new definition of useless.

I’m repping a double major in #8 and #12. Fati makes me not hate my life as much.

Woodward and Bernstein: Could the Web generation uncover a Watergate-type scandal?

Via The Washington Post

"I have no doubt that there are dozens of great reporters out there today - and news organizations - that could do this story. What I don’t think is that it would withstand this cultural reception. It might get ground up in the process." - Carl Bernstein

I know that it shouldn’t be, but this is one of my favorite stories of the past few days.

Pinterest, Copyright and Fair Use
While Pinterest is now the number three social media site behind Facebook and Twitter there’s still a bit of confusion over copyright and fair use when it comes to pinning.
Fortunately, the Electronic Frontier Foundation has a Pinterest-specific article about just that and looks at online precedents for fair use of copyrighted material.
The short of it runs like so:

For most users, Pinterest’s platform will provide a forum for fair uses. Posting pictures with captions and commentary, designed to spur further commentary and collaboration, are paradigmatic fair uses. Most users seek no commercial benefit, and only use as much of the underlying image as is necessary for the commentary. Thus, a typical Pinterest user, to the extent she draws from copyrighted works, will be making acceptable fair uses of those works.

For the long of it, visit the EFF. Besides copyright and fair use, they dive into Pinterests’ evolving terms and conditions and the confusion that they spawned.
