“A widely cited finding in social psychology holds that individuals with low levels of competence will judge themselves to be higher achieving than they really are. In the present study, I examine how the so‐called “Dunning‐Kruger effect””

Interesting altruistic market approach that crowd sources and gamifies paying down student loan debt. Apparently there is no obligation to play the game to be eligible to have one’s loans funded via the app. If only there were more businesses this concerned with helping others.
While we still support a public policy approach to fix student debt causes not symptoms, we gladly accept any market approaches with a focus on helping others.
“After factoring in charges from Braintree and Paypal, 75% of the earnings go to pay off the winner at the top of the queue, 15% to daily cash prizes and 10% to Givling.”
This fast-growing startup knows it can’t solve the student debt crisis, but it’s helping stamp out student loan debts one by one.
Fox News Poll Says Trump Is ‘Tearing America Apart,’ So Conservatives Throw Online Hissy Fit (TWEETS)
The poor little delicate Trumpkins are mad because Fox News just told them Donnie is toast.
“There is a new body of economic research, just in the last few years, that has found that the consolidation that we’re seeing across the economy—airlines, retail, media, all these different sectors—is in fact deeply linked to rising levels of inequality. The reason that so many of us can’t make a decent living has to do with this corporate consolidation. There’s growing profits going to a small number of folks at the top. We’re seeing less innovation. New business formation has collapsed; we’re now creating half as many new businesses now as we were in the late 1970s.
“So these effects are substantial, and they affect our own personal bottom line. So we shouldn’t get too distracted by Amazon and the media wanting to frame this in terms of consumers. We should remember that our well-being depends on all these other roles that we play in the economy.”
“Much of our retail and buying is going to be digitally driven, and we are facing the prospect of a single company dominating that trade.”
Right wing radicals are the biggest threat to America, not Muslims or immigrants. This is a serious issue and these movements now have people in very high positions of power.
“What concerns us most is that this radicalization seems to be spreading across the internet — and once groups have been red-pilled on one issue, they’re likely to be open to other extremist ideas. Online cultures that used to be relatively nonpolitical are beginning to seethe with racially charged anger. Some sci-fi, fandom, and gaming communities — having accepted run-of-the-mill anti-feminism — are beginning to espouse white-nationalist ideas. “Ironic” Nazi iconography and hateful epithets are becoming serious expressions of anti-Semitism.”
“Red-pilling” is radicalizing by another name.
Minnesota Senate votes 58-9 to pass Internet privacy protections in response to repeal of FCC privacy rules | Privacy Online News
Good work in Minnesota! Other States should follow suit
“Once this bill passes in the Minnesota House and is signed into law by Governor Mark Dayton, ISPs will be required to obtain “express written approval from the customer” before collecting customer information from their users. Furthermore, it forbids these ISPs and telecoms from refusing to provide service to someone that refuses to approve the collection of their personal data; which, if the online reaction to the repeal of FCC privacy rules is any show of, is a lot of people. “
In stark contrast to Congress’s recent vote against the Internet privacy rights of American constituents, Minnesota’s state Senators have voted to add broadband privacy protections at the state level. The protections were added in an amendment to S.F. No. 1937, the Minnesota economic development bud…
Russia’s online propaganda is no joke
“Russia’s Education Ministry has said it will use social media to create a new generation of patriotic Russian schoolchildren.”
