8 Tips For Avoiding Information Overload
Huffington Post - about 2 months
If this isn’t the first article ― or Facebook post or tweet ― you’ve read today, you’re probably not alone. A 2015 poll showed workers report spending as many as 6.3 hours everyday just checking emails. And earlier this year, Facebook reported its users spend an average of 50 minutes everyday on its site, including the app and messaging app. If the numbers seem overwhelming, rest assured. Americans actually reported feel less overwhelmed by the amount of information coming their way this year than they did a decade ago, according to the latest Pew Research Center data. Approximately 20 percent of people reported feeling overwhelmed by “information overload” in a Pew survey reported earlier this month, compared with 27 percent reporting the same thing in a 2006 survey.  What’s more, the number of people who report they like having so much information at their fingertips is actually up.

The Great British Bake-Off: Ruby Tandoh doesn't deserve this hostility | Sarah Ditum
Guardian (UK) - over 3 years
The 21-year-old finalist is being punished for simply being a high-achieving woman who openly cares about what she does Baking is a sort of alchemy. With precise judgment, a lot of practice and expert patience, the skilled kitchen craftsman learns to transform clouds of eggwhite into shiny-topped macarons, pools of molten chocolate into hard and gleaming tempered sheets, dusty heaps of flour and foaming yeast into elaborate plaits of yielding bread. And on Tuesday night, the oven timer of fate will go ping and another transformation will be complete: the winner of the Great British Bake Off will be declared and one amateur baker's life will change forever. This isn't hyperbole: Bake Off is one of the few talent shows that has the power to launch a career, with previous contestants making the jump to pro cuisine thanks to the programme. The show comes trimmed with pastel bunting, and iced with the gloriously awful puns of presenters Mel and Sue, but beneath all that is a sponge laye ...
