ultimate way to feel connected to what my friends and family are up
to, it's great for sharing work with my design students as well as for
them to share their own work with me, and it allows me to transport
myself to places I've been and love with the click of a button (ie:

A group of concerned mothers deeming themselves "Twittermoms" created a petition to remove previously decreed Douchebag Chris Brown from the list of Nickelodeon Kids Choice Awards nominees. The petition also called for Rihanna's removal because "had she made the rational decision to accept the no-contact order and end the relationship, she would not be named". Brown withdrew from the competition himself last week, but Nickelodeon would not do remove his name previous to that on their own stating it was up to the kids to decide. Why was Rihanna called to remove herself in the first place? Was Nickelodeon valid in their initial reaction to keep Brown in the running? What about the morality of the other nominees?

Last week, John Worboys was convicted of one count of rape and seven counts of sexual assault on women he drugged and attacked in his cab. At least 85 women accused him of assault and the number is believed to be even higher than that. Due to a practice by British police to fail to classify women's allegations of assault as crimes, Worboys and who knows how many other predators got away with their crimes, until last year when those complaints were finally taken seriously.

But in some respects Jerry has not gotten the credit he deserves. He's also a patronizing ableist who's successfully promoted out-dated, prejudicial attitudes about disability. In recognition of this noncomplishment, the Academy of Motion Picture Arts and Sciences decided to give him an Oscar – for being a humanitarian.
