Facebook, which the United Nations’ top human rights commissioner accused earlier this year of a “slow and ineffective” response to evidence it was fueling state genocide against the Rohingya Muslim minority in Myanmar, admitted in a blog post on Monday that their own “independent human rights impact assessment” has more or less confirmed that it really screwed that one up.

In Jersey Shore, Abridged, Jezebel planned to recap the first season, and maybe the entire series, of Jersey Shore in 3 to 5 sentences followed by viewing comprehension questions and therapeutic prompts. An editorial decision was made to jump ahead to the latest season because rewatching the entire series was bad for my brain and heart.

I had to bring my car in for an estimate today, and found this sitting in the next bay over:
‘48 Chevrolet Woodie. I asked if I could take some photos and the owner of the shop was happy to oblige. It’s a customer car getting some work done, so I agreed to obscure the plate.
One bay over was the skeleton of a ‘64 Austin Healey 3000 in the process of a full restoration.

Finally got around to taking some pictures of my latest two models. F641 and the F189, 1990 and 1989 Ferrari F1 entries. Finished them up shortly after Christmas break. One is a Tamiya and the other Fujimi.
I took a gamble and did a carbon decal kit on the '89 car which turned out OK. The tub has some noticeable errors but the diffuser and wings turned out real well. Its piece together for...View more »

Now, another loud thing: Emergency Football Show Weekly, a weekly (we hope) video about what’s going on in the NFL. This week Dom Cosentino and I cover NBC’s new “green zone” feature, which...View more »
