• Excerpt from Mother Jones -- "The credibility boost was similarly strong when subjects were told the ads were not vetted by regulators—which is true. 'We made explicit to half of participants (and repeatedly reminded them) that the Federal Election Commission had not evaluated the content,' Critcher and Jung write. Even subjects who acknowledged that the Stand By Your Ad tagline did not reflect an ad’s truthfulness were significantly influenced, according to the paper."

  • Excerpt from WIRED -- "'The platforms are walking a fine line: Clearly they each want as much time as possible from the drivers, but they also don’t want to step over the line where there’s any indication that this is anything other than an independent contracting relationship,' says Arun Sundararajan, a professor of business at New York University and author of The Sharing Economy. 'There’s also potentially a danger in blocking the app, because both Uber and Lyft have market power now.

  • Excerpt from Fox Business -- "Well I think it's going to be a mixture of they will invest it in new products. They've got a strong tradition of developing new products that delight customers. They will be giving bonuses to a number of their employees and over the longer run it may well trickle into larger dividends but for the moment I think it's investing in the business and in their employees, both are terrifically important.

  • Excerpt from BNN -- "One of the things that was also interesting about this group of people is that, first of all, most of them had far less formal education than you would expect for the fields they contributed to. And all of them resisted, in some way, the structure of formal education, but that doesn't mean that education wasn't important to them. What happened was that they consumed education on their own terms. So a lot of them were autodidacts, or self taught, and they read like crazy, and that enabled them to go as deep into a topic or as far abroad topics as they wanted, which turns out to be incredibly important because the curriculum that we might have in school or the pedagogical tools that we are using might be great for some students and might be a shackle for other students."
