"Despite its ubiquity in popular discussions, however, acting white theory has come under sustained criticism from education scholars."

"The U.N. refugee agency said earlier that about 70,000 Syrians have crossed into Turkey in the past 24 hours, and that it was preparing for the arrival of hundreds of thousands more."

“There are clearly recruitment centers being set up in Ankara and elsewhere in Turkey, but the government doesn’t seem to care.”

"Personal attacks conveyed through email and Twitter aimed at the correspondent, Ceylan Yeginsu, have intensified in Turkey since the publication of her article on Tuesday about the Islamic State’s recruitment efforts."

"With Uber valued at $18 billion, Airbnb valued at $10 billion, and new imitators popping up daily, Silicon Valley is clearly infatuated with the middleman model."

"For those of us who are frantic in our daily lives, incorruptible human cultural curators of eclectic taste mean the world to us."
