Great looping. Also, this is something I will use with my students to show the importance of details vs. the bigger picture. That in the proper context both matter.

Is there a better way of showing a text message in a film? How about the internet? Even though we’re well into the digital age, film is still ineffective at depicting the world we live in. Maybe the solution lies not in content, but in form.

"1,225%"

That’s how much the price of college in America has increased over the past 4 decades

That is not a typo.

This wonderful short film chronicles a day in the life of a printmaker – here’s to hoping it never ends up among this omnibus of bittersweet short films about obsolete occupations

LONG LIVE PRINT!!!

"We live in a new era of neoliberal savagery. Life has become cheap, emptied of its integrity and worth and reduced to the metrics of profit and a ruthless form of market fundamentalism. America occupies a historical moment characterized by market genocide - a time in which entire populations are considered disposable, left on their own to barely survive or die. Refusing Medicaid expansion by right-wing politicians such as Rick Perry is only one example of the death march at the heart of the politics of disposability and the culture of cruelty."

Why do I check Twitter before bed? It only makes me angry.

Sigh. Police can’t police themselves.

I’d be very, very interested in having this tweet fact checked. What reporters? From what outlets? 
It’s important for students to question things they see that are sensational, especially if it is in a tweet. This would be a good lesson for digital research and context.
