Here’s some of what we collected this week:
- VOX on some of the fraught history behind swimming pools, McKinney, and police assault of young black children.
- The problem of plastic waste in the ocean, and what one fashion company is trying to do to change it.
- The Mary Sue sits down with the inimitable Kate Beaton.
- Twitter has added a new anti-troll feature.
- Women in STEM fields respond to Tim Hunt with a hashtag funnier than his asinine comments deserved: #distractinglysexy.
