The clinic staff spent Friday canceling the appointments of 60-70 patients scheduled for abortions in the coming weeks.

“Some patients broke down and could not speak through their sobbing. Some patients were stunned and didn't know what to say. Some patients did not understand.” https://twitter.com/LeahMWillingham/status/1540378659424505857

A monthlong investigation by The New York Times found that the bullet that killed Shireen Abu Akleh was fired from the approximate location of the Israeli military convoy, most likely by a soldier from an elite unit. https://www.nytimes.com/2022/06/20/world/middleeast/palestian-journalist-killing-shireen.html

a perfect song you can listen to a million times and it never gets old. gorgeous video, too.

I’m going to miss living on this street, home to the best planter in London - aka where our neighbours replaced their parking space with a mini green oasis 🍃 🌺

I’ll share some highlights from the 2022 @risj_oxford News Report about journalism trends - firstly, 46% of people (mostly women and young people) actively avoid the news because it has a negative impact on their mood. That’s up from 24% in 2017.

Breaking: European Court of Human Rights in Strasbourg grants rule 39 request to stop the flight to Rwanda from leaving. Basis: real risk of inhuman and degrading treatment (Art. 3 ECHR). Please share - government must comply.

watched 'Everything Everywhere All at Once' last night and *wow* what a weird and wonderful movie. it somehow merges about 10 different genres (?) one of the most original movies i've seen in a long time.

this is all very true: how experiences of childhood poverty stay with you for life https://www.theguardian.com/society/2022/jun/01/the-shame-of-childhood-poverty-stays-with-you-for-life?CMP=share_btn_tw

so thrilled the brilliant Hedley Thomas is back with the follow up to the groundbreaking 'The Teachers Pet' - it's been 4 years, and now the case unfolds in real time. can't recommend it enough: https://podcasts.apple.com/au/podcast/the-teachers-trial/id1623945753

For people who have been studying the misinformation campaign around the Depp v Heard trial, this verdict is chilling. The success of Depp’s “redemption arc” narrative reveals a lot about our social media platforms and ourselves.

A thread of things I learned during Depp v Heard:

What a deeply bleak outcome. There will be victims who watched this case unfold as a vicious abuse spectacle and a joke on social media, and they will not come forward. And all this case has done is fuel a false narrative that women make domestic violence claims to ‘ruin’ men.

refreshing to see a big data-led graphics project focusing on an original topic like this. great story on the underreported cost of breastfeeding, debunking the myth its "free."

start-ups (like this one) have the advantage of laying out a pay band structure from day one. unfortunately, all these new roles don't say the salary, and just say 'competitive.' Competitive against what? https://twitter.com/kamalahmednews/status/1531650204927152128
