    When men return home from sporting competitions, they’re lauded as heroes, plain and simple. But a tweet from England’s Football Association sums up exactly how female athletes are treated differently. The tweet, since deleted, came after the England team returned home after placing in third at the Women’s World Cup, noting, “Our #Lionesses go back to being mothers, partners and daughters today, but they have taken on another title — heroes.” While the FA maintained that it was a well-meaning message and part of a larger story on the team’s…

    Have you ever wanted different subscription forms for different pages or categories in your WordPress blog? Sidebars do not always have to contain the same content. From our perspective, changing a sidebar is useful if you have individual mailing lists for each category, and want to put the right subscription form in the right sidebar.

  • More Than 160,000 Sign Petition for Reddit Chief’s Ouster

    An online petition calling for Reddit interim CEO Ellen Pao to step down has gained more 160,000 signatures. While the petition was started weeks ago, it’s gained significant traction after a popular employee, Victoria Taylor, who was Reddit’s director of talent and a facilitator of the Ask Me Anything feature, was removed from her position. The news resulted in the shut down of several popular message boards in protest. “I want to apologize to our community…” Pao told TIME last week. “We handled the transition in a way that caused some disruption, and we…

    There’s one thing every politician should know if they want to succeed in the rough-and-tumble world of Philadelphia politics — all the words to “Rapper’s Delight.” That’s the takeaway from a new video where Philly mayor Michael Nutter jumped on stage with local boys-turned-The Tonight Show house band The Roots to perform the Sugarhill Gang’s classic rap song. The mayor didn’t miss a beat as he spit out the rhymes on stage at the 4th of July celebration at the Wawa Welcome America! festival. He walked the stage like a pro, throwing down verses,…

    Greece’s top negotiator in aid talks with creditors, Euclid Tsakalotos, will be sworn in as finance minister on Monday after the resignation of Yanis Varoufakis, a Greek presidency source told Reuters. “Tsakalotos will be sworn in with the political oath as finance minister,” the presidency official reportedly said in a statement. Earlier Monday, former Greek finance chief Yanis Varoufakis resigned under pressure from his government and Greece’s creditors. They had seen him as an obstacle to talks on a new bailout after voters rejected lenders’ terms in a…

    Because we have been taught to believe in happy endings, it’s easy for young people to view racism as a problem that will inevitably be solved, or perhaps already has been. In the history books, racial progress for African Americans occurs on a comforting positive slope, evolving from slavery to Jim Crow discrimination to the post-Civil Rights era of equality under the law. And in our own lifetimes, we reached a new racial milestone when Barack Obama became the United States’ first black president, thanks in a large part to a groundswell of support from young voters of all races…

    This morning I realized that a key feature was missing from FeedBlitz’s monetization option. Premium FeedBlitz publishers should be able to suppress advertisements from their feeds and mailings without logging into FeedBlitz and making changes to their account. Sometimes we  have to write about things that are too personal, too important, or too sad for ads of any kind to be appropriate. As of today if a post is tagged or categorized as “noads” there will be no ad in that RSS entry or added by that post mailed as a stand alone mailing. You can apply “noads” as a…

    Volatility is watchable but there’s more to passion than screaming and shouting. As I’ve found in my squash career, a calm head helps in the big momentsWe’re hearing a lot about characters at this year’s Wimbledon. Perhaps it’s because the event holds to its gentlemanly traditions and, against the prim white and greenness of it all, any colour provides the perfect contrast for any sort character to emerge. Dustin Brown has been labelled a character since his win over Rafael Nadal last week, and it’s confusing to fathom quite what makes him liable to be lauded as such. Is it…
