Portugal não é um país racista. - Queering style
Não significa que mesmo que estejas integrada na sociedade, tenhas um curso superior, um trabalho com contrato e fales português com sotaque lisboeta que te vão deixar de seguir nas loja de roupa ou que sejas a única pessoa a quem vão pedir para conferir que tens o bilhete numa carruagem do metro. Não significa ainda que quando se tenta ter uma conversa aberta e honesta [..] o único argumento que levantem seja:
-Se não gostas porque é que não voltas para a tua terra.

Notes from Malcolm Gladwell's Writing Masterclass | Hacker News
”There's a school of thought that runs something like this: the average US citizen isn't very bright, has a limited attention span, and has an appetite only for the superficial. So if you want to write a book about something you feel to be important, you have to sugar the pill - with lots and lots of sugar and make sure it's a very small pill indeed.

Hence the style "American-Folksy." In this genre the author leads the reader gently along by means of first-person narrative, tons of ...

The People Who Eat Shit for a Living
The shit eating paradigm that facebook has settled on, where numerous low wage works wade through a current of nefarious abuse on social media to curate it
the horror of this happened, through sheer numbers, slouches into shit happens and the undermining suspicion that shit is happening to everyone around you right now and, if they aren’t rending their garments about it or even gently asking for help, maybe neither should you.

Why America is the World’s First Poor Rich Country – Eudaimonia and Co
We don’t see America as a poor country, but we should begin to. Americans live fairly abysmal lives — short, lonely, unhappy, full of work and stress and despair, compared to their peers.

Microservice Websites
With this article we want to show that server-side rendered websites integrated on content (using transclusion) allow for high long-term evolvability compared to client-side rendering integrated with shared code. In other words, if you want a system with high long-term evolvability, you should not develop websites using only client-side JavaScript and integrate them using a shared components approach.

The Dirty Truth About Turning Seawater Into Drinking Water
They’re raising the alarm that this level of waste requires a plan. This untreated salt water can’t just hang around in ponds—or, in worst-case scenarios, go into oceans or sewers. Disposal depends on geography, but typically the waste does go into oceans or sewers, if not injected into wells or kept in evaporation ponds. The high concentrations of salt, as well as chemicals like copper and chlorine, can make it toxic to marine life.
