The far right can stick their collective heads in the sand and talk about American exceptionalism, but the rest of the world is getting educated in the meantime. America is indeed number one — in self-delusion.
Nekateri hrvaški mediji zelo neposredno o referendumu… http://www.index.hr/vijesti/clanak/hrvatska-odlucila-kao-nekad-65-posto-za-diskriminaciju/714255.aspx

The lack of students of color on college campuses across the country continues to perpetuate massive opportunity gaps between our communities. This young man decided to speak up about what he was seeing — or more importantly not seeing — on his home campus.
From The Atlantic:
Two researchers, Mark Graham and Stefano De Stabbata, at the Oxford Internet Institute have depicted the world’s “Internet empires” in a map, [above]. The map shows each nation’s most popular website, with the size of nations altered to reflect the number of Internet users there.
The map makes for a brief, informative look at how geographic—and universal—certain web tastes and habits are.
Oxford Internet Institute's note on the data:
The map uses freely available data retrieved Alexa on August 12th, 2013. The company has provided website analytics since 1996. Alexa collects data from millions of Internet users using one of over 25,000 different browser extensions, and the data used for this visualization were calculated “using a combination of the estimated average daily unique visitors to a site and the estimated number of pageviews on that site from users in that country over the past month”.
The data are visualised as a choropleth map, where the colour indicates each country’s most visited website. Starting from the evident dominance of two companies (Google and Facebook), whose colours (red and blue, respectively) cover most of the map, we styled the illustration as an old colonial map, and named it after the computer game series Age of Empire. A second map illustrates the same data, using the hexagonal cartogram of the Internet Population 2011.
