"Some are noticing Netflix's tendency to entice black users with movie posters featuring black actors, no matter how minor their role in the film."

The truth about the gender pay gap - video explainer | Society | The Guardian - 0 views

  •  
    Really good video illustrating how (a) gathering data, and (b) understanding the shape of that data can give us insight onto real world issues, and help us to target approaches to tackling them "Britain has carried out one of the biggest data-gathering exercises on the gender pay gap, exposing large disparities between the average pay given to men and women in some of the country's best-known companies. We dispel some of the myths around the gap, and explain what it really means and why it matters"

Whose word should you respect in any debate on science? - 0 views

  •  
    The argument is simple, and goes a bit like this. Science does not work by appeal to authority, but rather by the acquisition of experimentally verifiable evidence. Appeals to scientific bodies are appeals to authority, so should be rejected. ...If legitimate authorities are not to be consulted, presumably there is no point in having scientists around at all, as each person would need to verify any claim on their own terms and with their own resources. That would mean a speedy decline into very dark times indeed.

  •  
    John Oliver explores America's wage gap between men and women and proposes a possible solution. Note: Solution proposed is 100% sarcastic. Think about the arguments being made and how they shift - e.g. the claim that 4% is "basically no wage gap" as a way to indicate a gap isn't in fact a problem. Using comedy/performance to make a point about statistics regarding a social issue
