Weekly Inspiration 006

Your weekly roundup of the best of the Internet this week.

Film / TV / Music 
Why Sansa Really Kneeled: How Sexism Shaped Sansa Stark’s Arc Long Ago | *SPOILERS* I’ve been struggling with how to make sense of the scene at the end of the most recent Game of Thrones episode. This scene, where we were made to watch the violation of Sansa Stark, is something that I haven’t been able to stop thinking about, and something I’ve found immensely upsetting. It is also something that does not happen in the books from which this show is supposedly adapting
Florence Welch: 'I have a very self-destructive, chaotic, impulsive side' | In the past, Welch has touched on her battle with depression and how the sudden whirlwind of celebrity hacked into the much simpler desire to make music. That said, she acknowledges the nexus between those darker emotions and making music, a sort of creative takeaway from depression and anxiety
What underwhelming last lines have left you cold? | With Parks And Recreation, a show I loved but a finale I didn’t, I got to thinking about last lines in pop culture.

Can Racism Be Stopped in the Third Grade? | It is absolutely not her intention, she says, to lay on 8-year-olds a burden about white privilege or white guilt. “They have done nothing — nothing,” she emphasizes. All she hopes to do is to get a bunch of white kids in a room to recognize that they’re white. And perhaps to ask themselves, if they’re ready for it, “Hey, what does that mean?”
The World Changing Ideas Of 2015 | 14 of the most important trends, theories, and inventions that are going to re-shape business, society, and the planet in the year to come
Is your corporate job eroding your confidence? | "Watching middle-aged white male after middle-age white male tell their war stories of sacrificing everything to close the sale was demoralising, I just kept sinking lower in my chair and thinking that I would never be able to make it to the senior ranks if this was what it took."
Science Has Determined Which Photo Filters Are the Best | One slightly less beneficial — but still interesting! — use of this data is to analyze which filters drive up engagement on sites like Instagram and Flickr
