I Witnessed Hollywood's Sexism Firsthand -- And Said Nothing

I Witnessed Hollywood's Sexism Firsthand -- And Said Nothing | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
One man said, "Would you rather keep the Oscar statue or get a blow job from any actress in the first three rows?"...
Sarah Volpe's insight:

When reading this article I was very shocked, I could not believe how inconsiderate men could be that are especially in the entertainment business. I thought that men in the entertainment business would be more understanding but I thought wrong. Most men believe that women are like some type of property and ownership which they are not. The other people around these men saying these ridiculous comments did not say anything to them. Most women are afraid to stand up for what they believe and take a stand. Maybe if women said something to then as they were making the inappropriate comments the men would realize what they are doing. This is a credible source because it is from the Huff Post

Mystery Polio Illness — 25 Children Paralyzed In California ...

Mystery Polio Illness — 25 Children Paralyzed In California ... | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
Neurologists in California are concerned about a new illness similar to Polio that is leaving children with irreversible paralyzed limbs. Reports tell that at least twenty-five cases have been found since 2012, and even though ...
Sarah Volpe's insight:

Children are being affect by  a new illness paralyzing limbs and respiratory issues. Doctors need to figure out what is happening to protect the kids that are at risk of getting the illness. Children do not have a say in what types of medicine or procedures they go through, in which doctors need to be more aware of what they are doing to children. I believe this source is credible because it quotes doctors. This article is not bias because it is just giving facts.

White House to Address Petition to Deport Justin Bieber | Music ... | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
Justin Bieber's recent behavioral missteps are beginning to demand some very high-level attention, as a petition to deport the Canadian pop star from the United States may soon receive a response from the White House.
Sarah Volpe's insight:

This article about Justin Bieber getting deported makes me laugh. If it was any other non-famous person in the United States they would have been deported a long time ago. I believe the White House has more important things to deal with than dealing with the arrest of an immature celebrity. This source is reliable because it is from Rolling Stones magazine.

Reaching My Autistic Son Through Disney - NYTimes.com

Reaching My Autistic Son Through Disney - NYTimes.com | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
Sarah Volpe's insight:

Autism symptoms start to occur within 18 to 36 months of birth. This story about Disney changing this little boys life is so inspirational. All he wanted to say was a sentence and it came out as a word. The doctors shut the parents down when the parents had so much hope they were connecting with their son. I loved reading this story and learning so much. This is a credible source because it is written by a dad with a son with autism this article was in the New York Times.

Desperate researchers blame superstition as likely cause of autism ... | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
Obviously a fictitious commentary on how the vaccine industry is running out of things to blame for an escalating autism epidemic that now affects one in 50 children, Hutchinson's satire piece is sure to strike a nerve in those ...
Sarah Volpe's insight:

I believe that vaccines or superstition are not the reason children become autistic. The superstitions that the article addresses I do not believe are true. It is a blessing that the child was born and is okay. People should not look at it as such a bad thing and think about it in respect the person with autism. The article is from Natural News, the author interviews doctors which makes it a reliable source. Some of the article is biased in the way that they choose their wording.

Actresses Strike Back Against Ridiculous Interview Questions

Actresses Strike Back Against Ridiculous Interview Questions | What's going on in the world? | Scoop.it
Lately I’ve noticed a trend arising among the countless gifsets I scroll past on my Tumblr dashboard. Every time I see it I want to cheer. Aren’t we all
Sarah Volpe's insight:

This website is bias but the accusations are true. During interviews women get asked different questions than men do. Scarlett Johansson got asked questions about her waistline and diet while her costar got asked questions about his character. Scarlett had had the right to not answer the questions from the interviewer because that is her own personal problems. The same interviewer that asked Scarlett Johansson the disturbing questions asked Anne Hathaway about working out. Actors and actresses should get asked the same questions in interviews.
