Since Last We Spoke 2/24/14

It was a pretty glorious weekend in DC, so much of my time was spent outside and unplugged. But my Twitter feed was exploding once I finally logged back on–here’s what’s caught my eye since last we spoke:

A Small Victory for Native Women (ColorLines)

Gender Based Violence meets Disability Violence (intersectionalitytimes)

Downton Abbey and the Insensitive Portrayal of Rape on TV (TV Guide)

The Benjamin Franklin Effect: The Surprising Psychology of How to Handle Haters (brain pickings)

Tribal shooting suspect was known for her temper (LA Times)

How to Get a Job at Google (NY Times)

Rape Victim Arrested To Help Prove She Was Raped, Kidnapped (Jezebel)

Progress Against Hepatitis C, a Sneaky Virus (NY Times Well Blog)

Use of Google Glass in forensic medicine, suggests other applications (iMedicalApps)

Early exposure to parental tension is a risk factor for later mental woes, researchers say. (healthfinder.gov)

Arizona’s shameful ‘right to discriminate’ bill (CNN) {Ed: this is a heartbreaker for me; IAFN’s annual conference is in Arizona this year and I hate the idea of missing it, but my wife and will not step foot in that state if this hateful bill is enacted. As I have already said to friends, let’s hope more rationale and compassionate minds prevail.}
