Stung by a string of attacks by Uighurs – members of a Muslim minority – China’s Communist Party has stepped up a campaign against expressions of religious identity in the group. How ethnic Uighurs dress and what songs they listen to could get them in trouble. Under a local initiative known as Project Beauty, guards detain women whose clothing looks too Islamic. Billboards near checkpoints declare, “Let our hair flow and reveal our beautiful faces. Abandon old and outdated customs.”

A university president just gave up a lot of his salary to raise his school’s minimum wage

In some pretty awesome and uplifting news, Kentucky State University’s interim president Raymond Burse has given up more than $90,000 of his nearly $350,000 salary to help raise university workers’ minimum wage to $10.25 an hour.

The poverty of our century is unlike that of any other. It is not, as poverty was before, the result of natural scarcity, but of a set of priorities imposed upon the rest of the world by the rich. Consequently, the modern poor are not pitied, but written off as trash.

A study published in the July issue of Cognitive Science determined that children who are not exposed to religious stories are better able to tell that characters in “fantastical stories” are fictional — whereas children raised in a religious environment even “approach unfamiliar, fantastical stories flexibly.”

[The researchers] demonstrate that children typically have a “sensitivity to the implausible or magical elements in a narrative,” and can determine whether the characters in the narrative are real or fictional by references to fantastical elements within the narrative… However, children raised in households in which religious narratives are frequently encountered do not treat those narratives with the same skepticism.
