Source: Big Government

Prime Minister's Question Time (PMQs) is a big turn off. So says Mumsnet, the website for women who have had babies, are thinking about having babies, or who are just really into the idea that motherhood is such a blessed state in and of itself that it confers special insight and must be deferred to as often as possible on every conceivable occasion.

Gugu Mbatha-Raw covers 'Spectator Life'

Source: Oh No They Didn't!

Gugu Mbatha-Raw’s first glimpse of her character in the British film Belle came on a postcard. It was of a 1779 painting attributed to Johann Zoffany of an aristocratic African woman, playing hand in hand with her white cousin. It’s a warm, playful portrait, inviting the viewer into the girls’ private world, and almost, it seems, sharing with us a joke they are sharing with each other.Beyond its surface appeal — the playfulness, ...

Of Course YA Books Can Be Complex

Source: The Atlantic

Young-adult fiction, Ruth Graham argues at Slate, is escapist, intended for "instant gratification and nostalgia." Its books lack complexity, she argues, and are merely "maudlin teen dramas." Reading them is bad for you, your brain, and your moral fiber: "Fellow grown-ups, at the risk of sounding snobbish and joyless and old, we are better than this."

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
