Infographic: Mercury in Seafood

Mercury's a nasty little bugger. No, not the planet, the element. It bioaccumulates out the wazoo so that by the time we sit down to a nice dinner of fresh mackerel, we're eating a lot more than just the fish.

This doesn't happen to white people

(CNN) -- I am a 54-year-old black woman -- a mother, lawyer and law professor. I teach at the Washington University in St. Louis Law School and live 12 miles away from Ferguson, Missouri.

The median household income in my suburb is $85,000 per year. In Ferguson, it is $36,000. In my suburb, 3.5% of the people are black. In Ferguson, almost 70% are black. These are stark contrasts. Yet I share things in common with black people in Ferguson and, indeed, throughout the United States.

Two numbers that show how badly America’s middle class is hurting

Two recent reports show that almost seven years after the economy tumbled into recession, the middle class is a long way from recovery.

At The Upshot, Neil Irwin summarizes new data from Sentier Research, which shows that in June, "the median household income was $53,891, down from $55,589 in inflation-adjusted dollars when the economic expansion began in June 2009." So the middle class is poorer today than they were five years ago.

Scarier yet: that puts median household incomes today below where they were in 2000. "The middle-income American family is worse off, in other words, than it was 14 years ago," writes Irwin.

We are winning. With comments like Cornell West made, we can appeal to the THINKING black demographic. "We asked for John Coltrane and we got Kenny G with a brown face." Brilliant.

Snowden: The Surveillance Engine, How the NSA Built Its Own Secret Google

The National Security Agency is secretly providing data to nearly two dozen U.S. government agencies with a “Google-like” search engine built to share more than 850 billion records about phone calls, emails, cellphone locations, and internet chats, according to classified documents obtained by The Intercept.

The documents provide the first definitive evidence that the NSA has for years made massive amounts of surveillance data directly accessible to domestic law enforcement agencies. Planning documents for ICREACH, as the search engine is called, cite the Federal Bureau of Investigation and the Drug Enforcement Administration as key participants.

I Am Going Through My Second Divorce, Ten Years After The First.

My wife filed for it last week, after only five years of marriage.

The fact is I do have personal issues that have made her unhappy for longer than she can handle.

She is a mother and I am a father. We must give each other happiness, first, for our kids' balance.

I love her with all my heart, and I know she is still my friend because she is very supportive of me for my taking better care of myself.

Foley video with Briton was staged, experts say

Staging an event to whip up war fever thoughout the population? TPTB wouldn't do THAT! lol.

Note: Part of this article is behind a pay wall but enough is viewable to get the jest of it.

video of a British jihadist beheading an American hostage was probably staged, with the actual murder taking place off-camera, according to forensic analysis.

Footage of James Foley’s death at the hands of a man with a London accent provided a powerful propaganda tool for Islamic State — formerly Isis — when it was uploaded on to the internet and broadcast around the world last week.
