Oil Spill by Dylan Saucedo Interview

1. Which book (or other media) would you say is your largest influence? Contemporary poetry has been a large influence. Sylvia Plath. As well as certain television shows.  2. What part of the book was the most difficult to write? Most of the book was both, hard and easy to write.

It’s also what Potterverse creator J.K. Rowling said to a shocked Carnegie Hall in 2007, moments after she revealed that she’d “always thought of” Albus Dumbledore, high wizard of Hogwarts, as gay. Slashfic indeed followed. That day, Rowling’s announcement was mostly met with applause. These days, Rowling’s social-justice-flavored extratextual canonical embellishments—not only about Dumbledore’s sexuality, which she elaborated on over the weekend, but also about Hermione’s race, Harry’s…

30 Ex-Convicts Reminisce On What They Miss Most About Prison

Prison sucks — but according to Ask Reddit, there are some things you’ll miss once you’re out. 1. Free education and learning facilities. 2. A very structured day schedule. I tried to keep it after jail but it didn’t last long before I fell back into my chaotic life of having nothing structured or planned. 3. I liked that I felt secure. I wasn’t gonna starve.

Scribd has more than 1M paying subscribers

Subscription e-book and audiobook service Scribd says it’s grown to more than 1 million subscribers.

Scribd started as a document-sharing service before moving into the subscription e-book…

In defense of screen time

Siri Fiske It’s not the screen itself that’s good or bad — but what’s on it. These studies show that it’s not the screen itself that’s good or bad — but what’s on it. Watching two hours of Cartoon Network is much different than watching a National Geographic documentary. Parents simply need to create straightforward rules for their kids. Regulating non-educational screen time or having a social media curfew are both good options. At school, educators can use tech gadgets and apps to speed up the learning process while tailoring their lessons to support each student. Consider DreamBox, a platform…
