When these things happen, the articles always seem to feature the understandable fear of anti-Muslim reprisals from Muslim spokespeople, but not condemnations of the actions that accompany articles when other groups are seemingly "hijacked."  Are the authors excluding them?  Or are they just not uttered?

Saad Mohammad, a spokesman for the Islamic Society of Greater Oklahoma City, said leaders of the society’s mosque in northwest Oklahoma City are on alert and taking security precautions to protect the Muslims who gather there from any violence that someone might try to attempt in retaliation for the Moore incident. Mohammad said the anti-Muslim sentiments people may have could be heightened due to the beheadings and violence being perpetrated by the Islamic extremist group ISIS overseas. “They have this ISIS thing on their minds and now this guy has brought it to America,” Mohammad said.

Rolando Rivi (1931-45), a seminarian, was also martyred by Communists; he was beatified in the northern Italian city of Modena on October 10. Deeply attached to his cassock, he was studying in the forest one day and was easily identified by Communist partisans who wanted to kill a future priest. He was kidnapped, tortured, and killed three days later; he died praying for his father and mother.

Awesome. A laywoman who lived the single vocation, dedicated her life to God and charity.

Francisca de Paula de Jesus Isabel (1810-95), a Brazilian laywoman also known as NhÁ Chica, was beatified on May 4 in Baependi, Brazil. The illiterate daughter of a freed slave, she developed a deep bond with the Blessed Mother when she was orphaned at age ten. Spurning marriage proposals in order to devote herself entirely to God, she led a quiet life of prayer and service as a laywoman. In time, others sought her prayers and counsel. “Her simple life was totally dedicated to God and to charity, so much so that she was called ‘mother of the poor,’” Pope Francis said in a Regina Caeli address after her beatification.

Mill's on Adultry
adamcap.com

The philosopher J.S. Mill’s approach to the moral dilemma of adultery would be grounded in his utilitarianistic school of thought. His basic belief is that which is ethical pleases most of the people most of the time. In order to determine how much pleasure an action will yield, Mill uses “Hedonistic Calculus”, which is based on a set of criteria that measure happiness. The first criterion of Hedonistic Calculus is certainty.

In the same way, cheating may generally be wrong, but cheating-when-neglected may not be, depending on how the duties are formulated (for instance, by using the categorical imperative in Kant's ethics).

"UI is customer service for the computer"

For software going forward, help will be built into the user interface. It will be a part of the infrastructure, embedded in normal interface elements instead of being an add-on. If it’s not available in context, it might as well be invisible. In this way, the interface becomes more integral to the user experience than simply a tool to do a task with. As Julie Larson-Green has said: “User interface is customer service for the computer.”

Flight Attendants are not paid their full salary until the plane door is closed. Until then they are paid $1.50 an hour.

Flight attendants get paid for “flight hours only.” Translation: The clock doesn’t start until the craft pushes away from the gate. Flight delays, cancellations, and layovers affect us just as much as they do passengers—maybe even more.

People do scroll, if you give them a reason to.
uxmyths.com

Myth #3: People don’t scroll Although people weren’t used to scrolling in the mid-nineties, nowadays it’s absolutely natural to use the browser’s scrollbar. For a continuous and lengthy content, like an article or a tutorial, scrolling provides even better usability than slicing up the text to several pages. You don’t have to squeeze everything into the top of your homepage or above the fold. To make sure that people will scroll, you need to follow certain design principles and provide content that keeps your visitors interested. Also keep in mind that content above the fold will still get the most attention and is also crucial for users in deciding whether your page is worth reading at all.
