Why do people believe myths about the Confederacy? Because our textbooks and monuments are wrong.

Why do people believe myths about the Confederacy? Because our textbooks and monuments are wrong. | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it
History is the polemics of the victor, William F. Buckley allegedly said. Not so in the United States, at least not regarding the Civil War. As soon as Confederates laid down their arms, some picked up their pens and began to distort what they had done, and why. Their resulting mythology went national a generation later and persists — which is why a presidential candidate can suggest that slavery was somehow pro-family, and the public believes that the war was mainly fought over states’ rights.

The Confederates won with the pen (and the noose) what they could not win on the battlefield: the cause of white supremacy and the dominant understanding of what the war was all about. We are still digging ourselves out from under the misinformation that they spread, which has manifested in both our history books and our public monuments.

Facebook's face recognition software is now 97.5 per cent accurate

Facebook's face recognition software is now 97.5 per cent accurate | Share Some Love Today | Scoop.it
Facebook wants to increase revenue by encouraging engagement, so it has invented DeepFace, a feature with a sinister name and the ability to recognise and tag a face in a photo with an accuracy rate of 97.25 per cent. This isn’t taking place in a far-off future: DeepFace is now being trailed in the US as an opt-in feature, although it is not yet useable in the UK.

That means every photo of you put on Facebook, whether flattering or incriminating, could potentially be linked to you by Facebook, even if it never appears on your profile.

Chicago artist Jim Bachor is one of many citizens fed up with the state of city roads following the long and harsh winters of the Windy City, yet he’s one of the few to use his talents to transform the dangerous craters into delightfully summery mosaics. Looking good enough to eat, his newest frozen dessert designs can be found around the city just in time for summer.
