1. You think you’re going to have a tough time finding a job after graduation? Youth unemployment rates in Greece and Spain have hit 50%.
2. Sociological Images has an interesting post about what segregation looked like geographically in Durham, North Carolina circa 1937.
5. A disturbing story of Trayvon Martin, a black unarmed teenager who was gunned down in a Florida gated community by a neighborhood patrolman; the patrolman has yet to be charged with a crime.
7. Scientists at the University College of London have discovered what they are calling the “Qwerty effect:” how we type words on our computer may affect their meaning.
8. The Syrian National Council has rejected former U.N. chief Kofi Annan’s plea for the opposition group to start a dialogue with the Assad government.
