Lynching Report, Strauss-Kahn Trial, Warnings Against ‘Measles Parties’

By Aura Bogado Feb 10, 2015

Here’s some of that I’m reading up on this morning: 

  • Former IMF head Dominique Strauss-Kahn bites his lip in court as a sex worker describes his abuse of her during testimony at a trial in France.
  • Google is teaming with the Mayo Clinic to curate search results for those symptoms you’re always worrying about.
  • Researchers in Vermont claim that all languages are biased toward positivity. (Note they only examine English, Spanish, Portuguese, French, German, Russian, Korean, Chinese, Indonesian and Arabic, thereby leaving out an entire hemisphere’s worth of languages, yet come to a universal conclusion.)
